Edgefield .is proud of the way in
which her citizen-soldieiy respond
ed to the call of the Governor on
last Saturday. Gen. Lee said that
duty is the sublimest Avord in the
English language, and this is
Edgefield's conception of it. Gov.
Tillman may rely absolutely and
implicitly on Edgefield's four mili

_, Dr. Ouzts has received an order
from a big poultry farm in Ohio
for four sittings of eggs. His birds
are making a reputation at home
and abroad. He is breeding Wyan
dotte8 and Plymouth Rocks from
the best American strains and sells
eggs at $2.00 per sitting.
Will Adams has regular old
fashioned smoked meat in strips,
and at the same price as the white
-neat. To sit down to the break
fast table with a leather hoe cake
before you and a plate full of this
bacon broiled or fried, nicely pep
pered and buttered, reminds one
of the good old times before the
war, when every body was rich and
1800 and Froze to Death.
The peaches and pears and
plums were killed by the last
freezes beyond peradventure. Ap
ples, except the very early varie
ties, and blackberries are safe.
Vegetables, beets, peas, Irish po
tatoes were all killed. Corn that
was up in many cases killed down
flat, but may come out from the
bud. Buds on the oak trees were
also killed, and it is probable there
- will be no acorns this year. Per
simmons are gone too. ''Where
shall rest bG found?"
During the discussion of the
postoffice appropriation bill last
week, Congressman Talbert made
an earnest speech in behalf of the
farmers for an appropriation for
free delivery of the mails in the
rural districts. His speech was
loudly applauded and the appro
priation granted. So now we may
expect that in Sodom, Lickskillet,
Tickville, aud Doodle Hill, the
United States mail will drive up to
(.very man's door and deliver his
mail in person. Badinage asidp
this experiment ought to have been
made long ago. The farmers paj
as much to mail their letters as
the town folks, and why should
they not enjoy the same facilities?
This old government of ours will
get right after a while, but it does
seem to take it a long time.
Had to Cuss.
When the Edgefield Rifles reach
ed the depot in Columbia on Satur
day afternoon they were met there
by John Catiline Haskell and a
crowd of citizens who began to ex
expostulate with them and at
tempted to seduce them from their
allegiance to their duty, to obey
the laws of their country. This
same racket had been successfully
played with the Columbia com
panies and with the Newberry com
pany-to their eternal disgrace.
But the Edgefield 'ioys were made
of sterner stuff-they ,-let in'' to
"cussin"' and they cursed Haskell
and his crew until their impreca
tions and maledictions
Shook the sere loaves from the trees
As though a storm passed by.
Boys! it is wicked to cuss, but
if it had to be done, we know of
no fitter occasion and no more
cuss-deserving cusses than the
cusses you cussed.

MR. EDITOR: The city dudes who
sold their winter suits in order to
purchase a seersucker-straw-hat
outfit are looking rather billious
since the recent cold wave.
Corn, watermelons, and most of
the garden vegetables are to-day
twining with the woodbine.
From cold experience I find it
humiliating in the extreme to a
man who wraps his only blanket
around his pet fruit tree to discover
in the freezy morn' his hopes of at
least one pie blasted. "Verily all
is vanity and vexation of spirit."
I think if we should warm upon
politics a little the temperature
would keep up. Candidates come
out fiatflooted, even tho' barefoot
ed-hand over that big V to the
ADVERTISER and start in motion
the great hot ball of politics and
help the sun warm up the earth.
Every little's a help as the sow
said when she snapped at the gnat.

smiling face of our young school
teacher, Miss Fanuie Bussey. Her

[For the ADVERTISER.
MR. EDITOR: We had the past
week two big frosts that have done
considerable damage to the grain
crop. Oats that were jointing look
as if they were singed and have
fallen down on the ground. Corn
that was up is bitten down. Gar
den peas and cabbage are also
down flat and gardeners are very
low spirited at this time, but it is
all right. If it had not been the
disaster would not have befallen
us. Farmers are driving right
along preparing fora big cotton
crop. I am sorry to say it's so, but
nevertheless it's so. They had bet
ter make plenty of corn and bacon
and live at home. The country
never will be in a prosperous con
dition until farmers make their
supplies at home. Then they will
not need so much money. I have
uot'ceu men who do make their
supplies and they always get au
bet:er than those who raised so
much cotton. They are in easy
circumstances, live well, pay their
honest debts are never fail to pay
for their newspaper.

tage, that you went to Darlington
on Gov, Tillman's orders, and you
are proud of it."
TROOPS THAT WENT.
The following companies went :
Butler Guards, 16 men; Dibble
Light Dragoons, Orangeburg, 31
men ; Maxwell Guurds, of Green
wood, 30 men ; Morgan Rifles, or
Clifton, 30men ; Hampton Guards,
of Spartanburg, 24 men ; Sally
Rifles, 30 men; Palmetto Rifles,
of Aiken, 16 men; Forte Mote
Guards, 15 men; the Edgefield
Hussars and the Light Dragoons,
of the same place, combined and
mustered 35 men ; Greenville
Guards, 16 men ; Abbeville Rifles.
Capt. James H. Tillman went
with the treops. He said he had
ordered bis company, the Capers
Light Infantry, to Darlington, and
he expected to meet them there,
96 strong. There was a force of
exactly 492 men, all told. A num
ber of boxes of cartridges were
placed upon the train.
When the Governor ceased the
troops present broke into loud
cheers, which they kept up for ful
ly a minute. After issuing 6ome
minor orders the Governor drove
off to the mansion. The soldiers
were then marched out of the
grounds for the train.
COL. MIXON IN COMMAND.
The Edgefield Rifles, the Edisto
Rifles and the volunteer country
companies, as well as the Newber
ry company, were left here pre
sumably to be on hand in case their j
services were needed in the capi
tal city. "
AFTER THE MISSING GUNS.
It soon became known ? hat Gov
ernor Tillman had issued peremp
tory orders to Capts. Alston and
Capers, demauding immediate re
turn to him of the guns which had
been taken from their respective
armories, Both of these gentle
men answered the Governor that it
?vas not known who did remove
them, and they were in absolute
ignorance as to their whereabouts.
It became known that the cap
tains found it impossible to obey
the. Governor's order a number of
most prominent citizens, in the in
terest of peace and order, and in
Drder to prevent Governor Tillman
taking the withholding of the
[juns as an excuse for extreme
measures, interested themselves in
the matter, and earnestly advised
those who knew anything about
the whereabouts of the arms of the
Volunteers and the Zouaves to
tum them over to the captains of
the companies, so that they could
deliver them to the Governor. Thc
advice came from a large . number
of the most influential and most
thoroughly trusted citizens, and
the youug men soon expressed
their willingness to take the ad
vice given, and will do everything
in their power to- put their cap
tains in possession of the guns,
and enable them to comply with
the order. Capts. Alston and Ca
pers were of the same opinion ex
pressed by the leading citizens and
earnestly urged the men to deliver
the guns. If possible, this will be
SO DEMONSTRATION AT DARLINGTON.
Darlington, S. C., April 1.
Upon receipt of. the news of 300
State troops being sent here under
General R. N. Richbourg, the ad
visory committee promptly met.
After a serious consideration of
all sides of the question it wai de
cided thot no effort would be made
to have the troops stopped,, nor
?vould any resistance be offered to
iheir taking quarters here. It
?vas some time before some of the
more hot-headed citizens could be
convinced that this was the only
and best course. Prominent citi
jeus from Columbia and other
parts or the State begged the peo
ple of Darlington to receive the
military without demonstration.
The Darlington Guards have gone
to meet the military, which, at
?) :15, had not yet arrived.
COMING TO THEIR SKNSE9.
The people of Darlington are deter
mined that no destruction to State
property shall be permitted here, and
ast night when an ell'ort was made to
loot the dispensary it was promptly
resisted. During the morning an effort
ivas made to organize the citizens to
.esist the country volunteers that Gov.
Tillman has called for. Mayor Dargan
ind other prominent citizens address- 1
;d the men, and advised them not to
nake any such demonstration, but to
.emain perfectly quiet, as the under
standing was that Gov. Tillman would
lo nothing to exoite the people here,
ind that the military would under no
circumstances be allowed toc?me here.
Sen. Farley was of the opinion that 1
:here was absolutely no occasion for
;he bringing of the military. The peo- 1
plehere did not at all like the idea of
he Western Union Telegrrph office at
Jolumbia being put under censorship
m their account. With all of the oili
;ers in tne city, all of the constables of
he county, and all the people bent
jpon keeping the peace, comes the
news that 900 troons from Columbia
lave started on their way here. Al
ibis hour, 6 o'clock p. m., efforts are
aeing made to have the troops return 1
:o Columbia, on the ground that their
presence can do no possible good.
GOVERNOR TILLMAN'S TELEGRAM.
The following message has been re
ceived by the advisory committee :
Columbia, S. C., April 1, 1894.
W. C. Coker, and Others, Darlington :
1 am glad to have your assurances ol'
juiet prevailing at Darlington, but
inned bodies of Insurgents are still in
;he country ,t -ying to murder the State
ifticers, so 1 am informed. As soon as
ife and liberty are safe in both coun
ties I will issue a proclamation restor
ing the civil status.
[Signed) ii. R. TILLMAN, Govern ir.
The posses, who are the alleged in
surgents, have? ll returned to Darling
ton since last night.
UNDER MILITARY DOMINATION.
The Mayor of the city has throw n
apen every public place, and the sol
diers are being comfortably quartered
in the Darlington Guards armory, the
souet house, the city hall, and the
Mayor's court room. Altogether there
?ire 250 men. comprising well drilled
organizations. Gen. Richbourg said
that he Lad come to Darlington with
iirders to preserve the peace, arni that
he positively uad no instructions to
make any arrests. Flis duty was to up

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was neyer a time in the his
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so
great as now. The conveniences ol
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in ollicial life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time, and expense. The political
change in the administration of the
government does not all'ect the progress
of the American inventor, wi o being
on the alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the all'airs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existingdiscrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in chooa
uga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare and prosecute an ap
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
especially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay" system. Inventors who entrust
their business to this class of attorneys
do so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength of the patent is never
considered in view of a quick endeavor
to get an allowance and obtain thr
fee then due. THK PKESS CLAIMS

Manager, GIS F street, N. W., Wash

number of important daily and weekly

is prepared to take charge of all patent
business entrusted to it for reasonable
lees, and prepares and prosecutes ap
plications generally, including
mechanical inventions, design patents
trademarks, labels,copyrights, inter
ferences, infringements, validity re
