not the exact phraseology used
and Mr. P. B. Lanham, presidenl
of the original club, asks us tc
say so. He says that there was nr
intention to stigmatize the retiring
members as independents excepl
in the sense that they propoeed tc
organize a club of their own, sepa

Mr. Dowty claims that the Choty
locusts have two big T's on their
wings. He thinks these T's stand
for Tillman and Tplbert. On the
other hand, Mat Bigham, of the

have two big W's, one on each

for tear. He says these birds are

A Texas paper after giving two

Flower when given up by the

all voicing the same sentiment
'that if it had not been for Dr. R.

written by the doctor, entitled,

News from Old Hibler.
MR. EDITOR: Our family has
been taking your valuable paper
for several years, and as I have not
seen anything from Hibler in some
time I thought I would tell you
about how things are getting on.
We are having lovely weather
just now and expect we will need
rain before we get it.
The grain cropR are sorry, fruit
crops a failure, with the exception
of a few apples and blackberries.
Gardens are nothing to brag on.
Corn and cotton is coming up
and looking very well.
There have been two club meet
ings in Hibler. One was Tillman
ites and the other-I think they
call it pluttercrats.
Some of the girls say they want
Mr. F. V. Drennan to run for the
Legislature. He says he would
like to go long enough to repeal
the lien law, do away with the
homestead, and establish a cash
system. I think he was in the no
tion to run but has declined the
idea since he heard that Mr. T. S.
Henderson was going to run-and
nearly every one says he will get
the o?ice. Mr. Drennan says he
is going to stay at home and at

MR. EDITOR : Owing to the cold
snap in March, and the present
dry weather, the oat crop is almost
a failure, but the wheat is looking
pretty well. Some of the farmers
say if flour stays cheap they are
going to feed their wheat to their
horses and buy flour.
Last Saturday while Mr. L. C.
PariHth was on his way to Bates
burg, he caught up with a negro
whowa8 driving a lumber wagon,
and asked him to let him pass as
he was in a hurry. The negro gave
him no answer, and when they got
to avide place in the road Mr.
Parish tried to pass by the negro,
but the negro pulled his mules to
the middle of the road, audwould
not let him pass. Then Mr. Parish
told the negro if he did not get out
of the wa}' and let him ?.pass he
would take his buggy-whip and
wear him out, and the negro told
him "it was time to get at it." Then
Mr. Parish jumped out of his
buggy and started toward the negro.
The negro drew a scantling on Mr.
Parish, and Mr. Parish hesitated
no longer to driw his revolver, and
buried a ball in the negro's chest
just above his heart, which will
perhaps prove fatal.
Our young friend Mr. T. L. Story

Mu. EDITOR: Mrs. Mamie
Walker's school at this place closed
April 13, 1894. The morning was
spent in examining the pupils, and
each and every one stood a splendid
examination. The evening exer
cises consisted of reading, speak
ing, dialogues, and spelling. Thn
latter seemed to be the decisive
bat? le, and never did a school do
better. The school then marched
to the church where a bountiful
linner was spread, and all were in

only four years old; he, too, made

school better controlled. All the
scholars love and obeytneir teach

Now, Mr. Editor, it might be
pertinent to enquire what called

Some of the men who helped to

MR. EDITOR : The war in Dar

closed, but the dry spell is still
holdiDg forth, rapidly destroying
what wheat and oats the freeze did
not kill. Our garden "sas" too
won't grow like it used to do-it
may be "unconstitutional."
Red Hill club from a misunder
standing failed to muster a quorum
at the appointed time for re-organ
ization, consequently the re-organ
ization was deferred until the 19th

holding over. Delegates were
elected to represent the club at the
county meeting on the 7th inst.
"Is it unconstitutional?"
Politics seem to be at avery low
ebb around Red Hill and one rarely
hears any mention of politics ex
cept to hear what "Jas" has done.
"Ain't he giving them pension
robbers thunder?" He has done a
sight more good than all the rest
put together. No chance for any
body else to butt agin Jas this
time no how. Them that didn't
vote forhim last time is obliged to
do it this time. You might gather
from the above remarks that the
s'and in Congress taken by Hon.
W. J. Talbert meets with the full
and unanimous endorsement of
his neighbors, friends, and those
who know him best.
The time for planting- cotton
seed is drawing near the close and

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never a time in the his
tory of our count ry when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so
great as now. The conveniences of
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on t he farm, and
in official life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
laber, 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 existing discrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos
nga 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 thc
fee then due. THE PRESS CLAIMS
COMPANY, John Wedderburn, General
Manager, GIS F street, N. W., Wash

number of important daily and weekly

methods heretofore employed 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

ferences, infringements, validity re
