"Rev. R. W. Seymour, pastor of

suddenly in that town last Friday
from heart failure. He was on the

minutes he breathed his last. He

conservative yet manly course on

E. B. Hart & Co.
This firm displays a very neat
and "catchy" advertisement in an
other column of this paper. Always
up to the times, jam up to the front,
in the matter of buying the latest
and best of everything in their
line, and in the largest markets of
the country, they are equally as
considerate of the pockets of their
customers and patrons and, while
they do not profess-and never
have-to sell "below cost," that
old chestnut devised to catch the
unwary, they do guarantee your
money's worth for your money.
Friday af ternoon last a heavy
hail storm prevailed near Gleen
wood, and to within a few miles of
Augusta, thought it was not con
tinuous the whole distance. In
the New Market section there was
considerable damage done, but it
was severest near the Georgia line.
Besides the hail there were
terrific drown-pours of rain reach
ing to the much dreaded cloud
bursts in several places. Our re
porter says that on Col. A. P.
Butler's place the water was three
feet on a level in the road. The
rain fall here was very heavy.
De Facto Liquor.
For several days days indeed
almost evT since the dehorning
of the dispensary law, liquor has
been coming into town over the
railroad, from Augusta and other
points. It has been coming in
jugs, bottles, demijohns, and kegs,
good, bad, and so-so-and in quan
tities to please the most exacting
stickler for the "inalienable right"
of man to drink it and sell it.
Well this de facto liquor has borne
fruit. On Saturday night last
George Norris, colored, gave a hot
supper at his house in the suburbs
of our !own. At this jamboree a
colored gentleman full of de facto
pulled his weapon on George and
shot him in the leg. This is the
first hot supper under the decision,
but it will not be the last.
How To Rill Liquor.
The New York Advertiser says:
"After a number of experiments
it ?6 sa^'d, Colonel Julian K. Lark
has demonstratod beyond a doubt
that parsley, if eaten before or
immediately after drinking wine,
will kill or completely neutralize
the effects, making intoxication an
impossibility. He discovered this
antidote in a peculiar way. In his
backyard in Brooklyn he has
grapevines that flourish and bear
fruit. Several years ago he planted
parsley in the back yard and dis
covered that grapevines could not
live with parsley growing near by.
As soon as he removed the parsley
the vines legained life. Then he
ate parsley and drank wine and
discovered that it killed the effects
of the vinous product,"

News from Upper Choty.
MR. EDIT OR : After a hard week's
plowing we concluded to take time
this Saturday evening to give you
a few dotB from Upper Choty.
Wo are all as busy as bees plant
ing 6 cents eotton seed, which
seems io claim all the farmers at
tention, for as you travel along
the road and look on the left you
see cotton, on the right you see
cotton, before and behind cotton.
The farmers rejoice now in plant
ing cotton and will Bhed tears of
grief over unpaid debts in the fall,
but as the good book says, as we
sow we may expect to reap. Every
body says they are planting more
corn than they have heretofore.
If they are it must be off from the
Oats is looking well, except the
very forward oats. We will make
a good crop in this section, and if
they don't get in feeding order j
Boon mules will get thin, as some j
of us will have to buy more corn
soon. Corn that is up is looking j
well. Gardens are very backward,
and cut-worms ar? plentiful. Fruit,
except a very few apples, is ali
killed. Blackberries are safe, and
we will have to build barb wire 1
fences around our briars to make I
everybody stay in their own i
Mr. J. W. R. Delaughter is the ?
biggest feeling man in this section. *
He almost jars the earth as he 1
walks. It is another fine boy. - *
Brother Wilkes was with us on (
the second Sunday at Barr's Chapel ?
and preached us a sermon that S
held his hearers spell bound for ?
half an hour. Brother Wilkes 1
always gets the strict attention of <
his congregation. His earnest and 1
faithful work has gained for him s
the highest esteem of all.
Tho Sunday-school is greatly
improving. Mr. R. L. Boddie is
superintendent, Mrs. AgneB Mor
jan is Bible class teacher, and Miss
Alice Johnson teaches the little
children. With such teachers the j
ichool will prosper. ^
Mr. Editor, in this fast age there i
are some things that puzzle our
brain, and still we can't solve it. <
How is it that some people can re- .
joice over the decision of the court
DD the dispensary law, and claim
to be Christian people; how they
san say so much about beautiful (
women and innocent little babies j
and children, and then fight sd ^
hard the best law for the women 1
and children thut ever was made i
and uphold the bar-rooms, the y
only hell on earth for the women
and children, and then claim to j
be leaders in the church aud in- <
structors of the people. The whis- <
key riug is a mighty ring; and is j
able to pay much money to keep
the great curse going, and still '
drag women and children down to
poverty. The Chronicle, like your
scribe, has no children to be led to
destruction by the bar-rooms, but
W9 love the commandment "Love

Something About the Crops and
a Number of Practical Re
marks About Other Things.
THE OAT AND WHEAT CROP.
I am sorry I have to say that the
oat and wheat crop is materially
injured by cold and dry weather.
I don't expect now much more than ,
a half yield of oither, which will |
be hard luck on the farmers, many |
of whom are now buying corn. ,
They were expecting great relief
from the grain crop. Well the truth |
of the business is, they ought to
raise more corn, a little more than
enough to do them and plenty of
bacon too, and less cotton.T hey 1
would then realize better prices for
cotton, and would get along much
better all along the line, be more
cheerful and happ}\ I know it is
mighty poor business for men to
be going to the depots with their
wagons and old poor mules after a
little corn, a little bacon, and a
sack or so of flour, and keep on in
that way until their crop comes in,
and worst of all, it is that way
every year. It would not be so bad
if it only occurred when we had
bad crop years, but it seems every
year is a bad c?op year with some
people and always will be unless
they work regularly and manage
their business better in every way.
I found out thirty years ago that
the more I worked and run my
business upon business principles,
and reasonably economized the
better I succeeded, and every man
that will practice the same will
find out that it is true, but the
fjreat trouble with a great many
men is they do not love that kind
THE DARLINGTON RIOT.
A few days after the Darlington
riot some gentlemen were discuss
ing the action of Gov. Tillman in
calling out the troops to quell the
same, and they commended him in
every act, and said he did per
fectly ricrbt, and that he could not
do otherwise under the circum
stances. They censured and disap
proved of the way those picnic
band-box fellows did by refusing
to go to Darlington. The State
ion't have any use for men who
iisobey orders, and Gov. Tillman
3id right in discharging them in
lisgrace and letting them know he
had no use for them. It will be
in easy matter for the Governor to
irganize companies out in the
?ountry and get men who will
stand up to the rack fodder or no
THE DISPENSARY LAW.
Good citizens obey the laws of
:he land whether the laws suit
;hem or not, and that is what the
people ought to have do in regard
;o the Dispensary law, for it was
he best liquor law wo have had on
:he statute books since the Revolu
:ionary war. It would have been
i great blessing to the young and
.ising generation. The temptations
vould not have been so great and
;he chances to get liquor would not
lave been so good. But a great
nany liquor dealers don't care
low many souls are damned if they
:an make money out of it.
THE DREADED BARROOMS.
Whiskey,; dreadful whiskey has
i terrible hold on a great many
>eople in this State, and especially
n Columbia and Charleston. It
loes seem that there ought to be
jood people enough in these cities
;o put whiskey down. If they
vould rise up and exert their in
luence, but no, they seem to be
lumb and deaf and take no int?r
?t in the matter at all. Some men
lay cities and towns can't prosper
md flourish without whiskey, well
f they cannot let them die, and
mry them deep, so deep that their
emains will never see daylight
BUTLER AND TILLMAN.
A good many I have heard ex
cess themselves do not approve of
Jen. Butler's action in leaving hiB
)Ost of duty in Washington and '.
ioming here about the time of the ,
darlington riot to criticise Gov.
rillman. It is thought by some '.
hat his mission was mostly to
;ain votes for re election to the U. .
5. Senate. But instead of gaining ,
hem he may have lost some. It
nay turn out like Gen. Hampton's <
ipeech in 1890. When he left his
)Ost of duty in Washington and
:ame here to solidify the people he
ost his re-election, and it may
>rove the same way with Gen. But
er Gov. Tillman could have
nanaged the affairs of the State
rery well without him. When men
ire elected to office they ought to
stay at their posts of duty attend
ng* to business. It is getting to be
lisgustiug to see that a good part
if the time there are not members
?nough in their seats in Congress
to make a quorum so that they can
;o on with business.
