Worthy of Puck.
Capt. Dick Anderson has re
ceived from Abbeville a most
artistic representation of a scene
that occurred during the late un
pleasantness. In the foreground
is one of the* Columbia companies
that has just flung down its arms
and refused to go to the "war."
They are dressed in the tip of
soldier style and are keeping step
beautifully, but the tears are pour
ing from their eyes because they
were not born "gal babies," and
they are going home to Ma, who in
ths background sits knitting
placidly in a big rocking chair
with a large bandbox beside her in
which she will safely hide them
when they have arrived. At the
right, in the picture, are the hay
seed crowd, farmers, with rakes,
hoes, and pitchforks, delightedly
eyeing the discarded guns and pre
paring to exchange their rude
weapons for those more suitable
for warfare. The caricature is
worthy of Puck.

It is safe to say that there would
have been no trouble ai Darlington
or elsewhere in enforcing'the Dis
pensary law if it were not for the.
craftiness of the News and Courier
in continually harping on the
"invasion of^private homes." There
hasn't been a raid on a private
house-a house used solely for a
dwelling-nineo the Dispensary
law went into effect. And it is not
at all likely that such raids will
bo made unless justified. The
sanctity of home is sacred and is
jealously guarded by our people.
Knowing that, the News and
Courier has devoted itself to
stirring up opposition to the Din
pensary system by attributing
every difficulty to that one thing.
Such a course is a base misrepre
sentation of facts, to say the least.

THE RING-TAIL ROARER.
SPEECH OF GEORGE
Of Edgefield to Troops and Citi
zens at Florence During the
Late and Never to be For
Specially reported for the ADVERTISER bj one
who was there.
Decidedly the pet of the regi
ment to which were assigned the
Edgefield troops, was George John
ston, colored, commonly known as
the Ring-Tail Roarer of the Bache
lor's Protective Union. When
George heard that there was
trouble in Darlington and Florence
and that the "Cap'n" and some
more of his friends were there he
went to Capt. Mays and made ap
plication to go along with the
Edgefield boys to "tote luggage and
do any fightin' that was necessary."
George weut, and the Edgefield
boys soou had him the pet of the
whole brigade. At Darlington and
at Florence as well as along the
railroad where the train stopped a
crowd would cluster aboi? him and
cal) for a plantation yarn or a
speech which was alway4 forth
coming. One of the most amusing
occasions, however, was at Florence
where on the sidewalk standing
upon an old kerosene barrel he ad
dressed probably a thousand citi
zens who gathered about the armory
ELS much from curiosity aB any
thing else. The militiamen backed
him up while he spoke substan
tially as follows :
"Feller sogers, men and women :
The fust thing in order is a
drink. Widout a drink a man is
always widout eloquence fittable to
de occashun. I dereforn in justis
to de great subject upon which I is
about to deliver myse'f call upon
th* Mayor er any uther patriotic
citizen to hand me up about er
gallun." [Great laughter.]
A quart of stuff which in an
emergency might be called whiskey
was quickly forthcoming. It was
soon outgoing. The orator was put
in a weaving way. The audience
cheered ; the speaker again begun
to speak :
'.You see before you at this mo
ment, feller-citizens 'and nir/gers, a
man who haz never yit faled to
respond to the call uv his country;
I am here as a patriut to perform
a patriutic duty."
[Good natured cries from the
populace of "Take him down,"
'.Cut his throat," "Pull out his
whiskers." The soldiers 1 allied
around their favorite to boost him
up and cheered lustily. One long,
lean, lank Ethiopian in rear of the
crowd brayed like a jack-ass. That
was too much for George and he
thundered out :] . .
"Oh you kin bray loud, and you
can bray long, but you will never
git to Lue fodder. [Laughter.J And
I wanter say right here, nigger, dat
&f you insults me agin I'll not be
'eponsible fer your early decese."
Somewhat of a sensation possessed
the audience when thc speaker, in
order to impress upon them the
importance of his remark, stuck a
six-shooter in a second-hand leg
ging that encased his right leg.
George then told them that he was
there for business. He "was fifty
feet front and rear to the river.
There were some people before
him," he said, "who didn't have
patriotism enough about them to
keep the breath warm in a four
year old child."
"What about the soldiers?" ex
claimed George in a loud voice.
"Yes, what about us sogers? Ef it
hadn't been fur us that great Amer
ican eagle that haz fiewod so long
and kivered our juvenil' years
with his wings-that eagle, feller
citizens, that sleeps on tho ragin'
tornado and warms hisself in de
sun-that proud and glorious eagle
would long ago have had his tail
feathers stamped out," [Great ap
plause, followed by a flight of hats
and caps in the air.]
"Wo is here to uphold tho law.
To cling to de constitution till it
goes out inter de expiring regions
of oblivion. [Applause.] The
dispensary is constitutional ac
cording to the statutes, and it mus'
be lived up to fodder or no fodder.
[Cheers.] To be agin thc dispen
sary law is tor bo agin tho consti
tution, and that ere insterment
can't be vierlated in my prezence
by no man." [Loud, long, and
thundering applause, which con
tinued while George took another
"Feller cits., Florence is a
great place. It's ail sorts uv er
place. And you've got all sorts uv
peple here. Why I saw a man last
nite whut snores so loud he had to
sleepover on the other side uv the
strete to keep from waking hissolf.
[Laughter.] I saw er man yistidy
who was so big and heavy dat hiz
shadder killed er little boy wheu
it fell on him. [Laughter.] I also
seed er man whose noze wuz so
long dat he had to step forward
three foots to reach to Jgend uv it.
[Laughter.] Talk about fightin'.
Why ef er row wuz t< r start here
you all would run so fast and so
fur dat when you stopped it would
take yer shadder twenty minits to
ketch up wid yer." [Laughter.]
"But let us have peace. So peace

depths of the forest nature will be

[Laughter and applause.]

Thc Darlington Tragedy.
Editor Atlanta Constitution:
Your editorial in your Situ day
edition, commenting on the recent
deplorable tragedy at Darlington,
S. C., iu which you commend Gov
ernor Tillman as a fearless, able,
and honest executive, is a fine arti
cle, and does him no more than
justice. 1 think, however, you
magnify tne evils of what you are
pleased to call the "spy" system,
whereas, the State constables are
no more "spies' than are the police
or detectives who are always recog
nized asa necessary and [respecta
ble adjunct of all well-regulated
The recent terrible tragedy at
Darlington and the lamentable
loss of the lives of several of the
most esteemed citizens of that city
is the logical and direct result of
the teaching of certain papers in
the State, to oppose Governor and
officials. No greater proof of this can
be given than the remarkable action
of some of the companies of the
State militia in throwing down
their arms when called on by the
comm an der-in chief to preserve
the peace and defend the property
of the State. This incident will
go down in history as the first in
stance, thank God, andi hope the
last, when Carolinians refused
to respond to the call of Carolina.
They have been educated,deceived,
and duped into the belief that the
citizens were being wronged by
the Dispensary law. which is the
best law on the statute books of
South Carolina to-day. I regard
the men slain, on both sides, as
martyrs, the constables in that
they died with their boots on like
brave men doing their duty, and
the citizens because they knew
not what they were doing, being so
wrought up over the sentimental
and fatal fallacy about a man's
home being his castle, etc.
One would think we lived in the
days of Brian du Bois Gilbert and
Richard Cuor de Leon, to listen
to all this nonsense about his
"castle." If a mau uses his "castle"
to store contraband or stolen pto
perty, who cares how soon his
"castle" is blown up with a pop
gun? The humiliating and morti
fying position of the disbanded
militia companies is a matter of
greatest regret, and that they are
beginning to realize what a terrible
mistake they have been duped in
to making, is evident from the
elaborate explanations now daily
forth-coming. The tragedy will
strengthen Governor Tillman and
perpetuate the Dispensary law.

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 sc
great as now. The conveniences of
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in official 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 affect the progress
of the American inventor, wi o being
on the alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existingdiscrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos
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 "Xo 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 the
fee then due. THE PRESS CLAIMS
COMPANY, John Wedderburn, General
Manager, 618 F street, N. W., Wash
ington, D. C.. representing a large
number of important daily and weekly
papers, as well as general peoiodicals
of the country, was instituted to pro
tect its patrons from the unsafe
methods heretofore emnloyed in this
line of business. The said Company
is prepared to take charge of all patent
business entrusted to it for reasonable
fees, and prepares and prosecutes ap
plications generally, including
mechanical inventions, design patents
trademarks, labels, copyrights, inter
ferences, infringements, validity re
ports, and gives especial attention to
rejected cases, lt is also prepared to
enter into competition with any firm
in securing foreign patents.
Write for instructions and advice.
