The Aiken Times says: "There
is a rumor afloat that the Seaboard
Air-Line will build the Cumber
land Gap railroad from Edgefieid
to Abbeville, cutting out sixty
miles between Abbeville and Char

from Atlauta vic. Abbeville and

An exchange says : "To cultivate
a distaste for alcohol, oranges are
more effective than almost any
thing else known. They should be
taken, one at a time, before break
fast, at ll A. M.j and the last

lemon juice are also excellent."
Another excellent method to culti
vate a distaste for alcohol is to buy
a black bottle of the blind tiger
whiskey now "going" in Edgefieid
and smell the stopper every morn
ing before breakfast.

There are said to be seven blind

that the blind tigers are among us

Caw and Cuss.
Speaking of caucuses, an old

because, like a flock of crows, they

publish Senator Butler's reply.
There is very litUe diff?rence be
tween tue two in point of fact.
Gov. Tillman is more dogmatic in
his phraseology ; the Seuatormore
diplomatic. The two answers are
pretty much of a muchness, and it
would have been better if the Alli

of our readers and entirely new to

a work which has been neglected

that of bringing its best intellect;:
to the front as teachers and edu

and entirety. Col. Folk, presidenr
of the club, has a master grasp of
the situation and has pul on his

Letter from 3Ir.
MR. EDITOR: I am just in from
a ti ip to Texas and there arc many
things which might bo mentioned
in connection therewith which
might be of interest, but I will not
ask space in your paper for them
at this time. I will only say that
as the trustees of tho Parksville
school an- thinking seriously of
making our school a "graded
school," I made it a point to en
quire particularly and specially
into school matters and thc man
age mern of them while in Texas.
1 suppose Texas has the largest
and best school fund of any of the
States. She has enough public
school money, I suppose, to grad
uate all her children, and that too
without taxing the people lo get it.
How does she gel it? you ask. She
acted very wisely and with a great
deal of foresight when she was ad
mitted into the Union, by reserv
ing every alternate section (about
OJO acres) of public lands for
school purposes, so that while she
has sold a great deal of this land
and put tho money' into interest
bearing bonds until they hare
money sufficient both to pay tui
tion and build good school houses
wherever they are needed, they
still have a great deal of this pub
lic land m reserve.
1 stopped over a few days in
Xavasota and attended the closing
exercises of Ibo graded school at
that place in order to be prepared
lo render some better service to
our own school and community.
We hope to set on foot a plan
for our school, that by the opening
of thc next session, we may have

"They were well named," re
marked Col. Oates, "'Wheat was
educated for the Episcopal minis

was in the Crimean war, was
with Lopez, was with Walker in

could get desperate men.

their cars, and they obeyed with

left them in Opelika. I got to

"He told me the only way to
control his men waa to shoot down
those who disobeyed or defied him,

fidelity of dogs. They were des
perate fighters and Beauregard
complimented them in his oilicial
report of the first battle of

Harbor Col. Wheat intimated to
Lieut. Peck, of the 9th Louisiana
regiment, and myself that he
would be killed in the coming bat

he told Peck what he wanted done
with some property he owned. Pie
?Mted it to go to his mother.
i that battle he was shot
through the head, and though the
ball passed through his brain he
