We hate to see men leaving the

His friends in Edgefield want him

H. 0. King, formerly of this
State but now of Atlanta, has dis
covered a covering for cotton that
it is said will supersede jute. The
invention consists of a galvanized
wire netting that takes the place of
jute bagging. Underneath the
netting, and wrapping the cotton,
is a covering of wood pulp which
reuders the bale impervious to
water or other influences, that
frequently injure the cotton. It
is also said to bo fireproof. A bale
of cotton can be dressed with the
wood pulp ind covered with the
wire netting as easily as it can be
covered with the jute bagging. A
farmer can fix it up on his own
plantation, aud the cost is not be
yond the ordinary expense of pre
paring a bale of market, while the
protection from the fire is a great
advantage. The bale is made hard
and compact and not an ounce of
cotton can be stolen. Mr. Edward
Atkinson, who is an eminent
authority upon such matters, has
given a strong endorsement to this
new method ot handling cotton
for the markets of the world, and
expresses the hope that the patent
process will be speedily in

Pleasant Day at McKendrec.
At McKeudree's Church on last
Sunday a most enjoyable day was
spent by the little folks and the
grown up folks as well. In the
forenoon the programme-Chil

Scripture readings, prayer, songR,
and short recitations by the chil
dren, also short talks by Rev. J. M.
Shell, colporteur for the American
Bible Society, and Mr. J. M. Cobb,
of our town. Then came recess
and a bountiful basket dinner. In
the afternoon there was a sermon
by Mr. Shell, after which a Wo

ganized with the following officers :
Mrs. Permenter, president; Mrs,

quite large and the exercises of

Hunting Seed Corn and Buying
MR: EDITOR This morning there
was a light frost to be seen on pin? -
straw, which makes the cotton look
sick and bad, and will be a 6et
back to it for quite a while. Corn
is not hurt as bad as the cotton,
as it stands the cold much better
than cotton does. By all means,
people ought to make plenty of
corn to do them, and to fatten
enough meat for home use, and a
little to spare. That is ,the way
people did before the war. In
those days if a man did not have
quite enough bacon to do him un
til he killed hogs, he could get as
much bacou from his neighbours
as he wanted. He did not have to
go away off to town for it, and that
is the way this should be now. I
am suprised at the scarcity of corn
in the county. AJgreat many people
have been and are yet going over
all creation hunting seed corn they
actually did not have seed corn to
plant. Such poor farming will al
ways keep the people poor and hard
up. They never will be any better
off unless they manage better, and
raise their supplies at home.

is proper, manly, and right. If
there is a man in our club who
does not endorse the Democratic
platform of 1892 that we fought

because he ought not to bolong to a

them all by surprise as they did

Navassota is a beautiful little
town on the Houston and Texas
Central R. R. near to the Brazos
River. Its population is about three
thousand. There are some v&ry
fine lands here, especially the
Brazos River bottoms where the
cotton will grow so large that it has
to be cut down with au axe before
you eau plow up the old stalks in
the spring. Small boys often have
to climb the stalk to pick the top
cotton. I was talking with au old
Texas farmer about the cultivation
of cotton on these bottoms and he
told me how they planted after a
freshet. He called it "walking-in"
cotton. You sow the seed aud step
on them which packs them in the
mud and in twenty-four hours it is
up and ready to chop. This is what

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 of
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
labair, 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 tlie alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter him
i:rom quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existing discrepencies. 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 "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 tht
fee then due. THE PRESS CLAIMS
