Mashes it in the Ground.
Mr. Abe Broadwater, who lives
three miles from our village, has
not a blade of grass in his cotton
fields of many acres, and this not
withstanding the continued rains
and the impossibility of plowing.
We had heard this from so many
sources that we determined when
next we saw Mr. Broadwater to
questiou him as to bow he mau
aged to bring about so wonderful a
state of affairs, so accordingly on
last Saturday we interviewed him
on the subject. "How did I get
rid of the grass?" he said, "Why,
I am so heavy I mash it in the
ground." In other words Mr.
Broadwater attended to his busi
ness, and before he even saw the
grass he plowed it and hoed it out

in North Edgefield to Giles Butler's
blacksmith shop to have a new
handle put on his frying pan,
(which had been broken by a fall
from the mantel-piece) as has been
his custom for many years, except
for a lew days during the year
1876, those days that tried men's
souls and redeemed our prostrate
State from the iron heel of Radical
rule, at which time he was confined
to his bed by a carbuncle caused
by his efforts to stop a yoke of
steers running away with a wagon
load of pumpkins and a little boy
whose father has long since gone

reach Athens, the boyhood home of

THE ATHENS DISPENSARY.
Another place we visited while
h^re was ihe famous Athens Dis
pensary, after which it is claimed
ours is planned. .
We had been told by one that
there was no similarity between
that and the South Carolina -dis
pensary. A few questions pro
pounded /to the dispenser, who
kindly answored them all, soon re

more than a gallon sold in a lot.
The profits are equally divided be
tween the town and county. You
are not prohibited from having
whiskey shipped in from other
places. They open at 6 o'clock and
and close at 6 o'clock.
The profits since the plan has
been in operation, some three years,
have averaged about $50,000 a
year. Their liquors, while of the
same quality, are much cheaper
An hour's ride on the Georgia
road brought us to the town oi"
Lexington. It reminded us of
Edgefield before "Old Tumblin"
reached you. From here, in com
pany with several friends, both
male and female, we went out to
the noted shaking rock. Picture
to yourself a rock as large as a
four room dwelling with another
on top of it perfectly balanced the
size of a barn, and you have
the shaking rock. A three-year-old
child can Bhake it violently, 60 well
is it balanced, and yet dozens of
stalwart men have been unable to
topple it off. An Indian legend is
connected with it, but space forbids
a reproduction of it here.
LARGEST FARMER IN THE SOUTH.
While here we go out to Sraith
onia, the home of the largest farm
er in the South, Col. Jas. A. Smith.
Eliminating rhetoric, poetical ex
pressions, etc., we will only state a
few facts. There are 23,000 acres
in his estate. He works 200 con
victs and 500 free laborers: runs
300 plowB, makes from 3,000 to
3,500 bales of cotton, about 30,000
bushels of corn ; has 500 head of
cows, 500 hogs, ships a carload of
cattle every week, milks 150 cows,
haB a daily yield of 75 pounds of
butter, owns and runs a cotton
seed oil mill, guano factory, corn
and wheat mill, etc., has two lines
of railroad, one connecting with
the G., C. & N. and the other with
a branch of the Georgia road. I
counted 80 wagons on the farm.
He has the strictest system in
everything. His business, over
which ho himself has the general
superintendence, is carried on like
clock work. His farm extends for
miles in every direction. His
laud6 are highly improved and
very productive. It takes from
September to March to gin his own
FIFTY ACRES IN CLOVER.
The prettiest sight we saw was
his fifty aero field of clover, now
ready for the mower. He has
severn threshing points on his plan
tation and a threshing machine at
each point. Before the war he was
an overseer. After the war he com
menced with a three-horse farm.
To-day he is the largest farmer in
the South. The personality of the
man is striking, and when younger
he was handsome. He has an open
face, high forehead and a business
eye. He ?B very simple in dress,
was wearing jeans pants, patched
in various places, a plain white
shirt with collar anda gingham
coat, which by the way was what
he put on by way of "dressing up"
as he expressed it.
He has served two terms in the
Georgia legislature and one in the
Senate. His memory is simply
wonderful. A more pleasant and
better informed mau we have never
met. His guests have become so
numerous that he has put up a ho
tel for their accomodation. The
Pasha of Egypt spent a week with
him last year on his return from
the World's Fair for the purpose
of studying the method of raising
cotton. The Colonel like all old
bachelors is fond of the girls, and
after dinner, which consisted en
tirely of vegetables of all sorts,
and which just suited our sharpen
ed appetites, threw open his parlor
and while he and the male portion
of our party enjoyed a nice
vana, the girls "made the walls
ring with merry music.
Later in the afternoon he had us
carried out to Five Forks, in his
private car. This road runs tnrough
the finest portion of his farm.
Never before had we seen upward
of a hundred plows abreast.
A word as to Georgia politics
and we must away to Carolina.
The Third party over there is just
what the Reform party is here.
They hope to carry the State, and
are confident Watson will go to
Congress from the 10th.
The Third partyites in Georgia
are great admirers of our Governor,
while the Democrats consider him
a lyrant of the deepest dye.

Thc Grass Grows Apace.
We have had rain, so much
rain, which is injuring the crop
much in places, especially on fiat
lands, where the corn and cotton
are drowned out. Oh high slaty
lands the crops are badly damaged.
The grass is.also injuring them, as
it has been impossible to keep
them clean, as very little plowing
has been done during the past
month, and nat much hoeing. If
we could have had Coxey's army
to trample out our grass we would
not have treated him so badly aB
the people of Washington did, who
fined and imprisoned him and his
lieutenants for walking on the
grass. There is no use of talking
about cleaning the grass out of the
crop now, it is an impossibility
and cannot be done.
Farmers have a hard time now
and then ; the dry weather almost
ruins the crop, and at times the
wet weather does them about as
bad. There is never any certainty
about making a good crop.
I consider the farmer the founda
tion of the world. All avocations
of the world are dependent upon
him for bread, and yet some silly
and ungrateful people look upon
him rather contemptuously and
frown on him as a poor clodhopper,
and perhaps never think their
bread comes from the farmer. Of
all men the farmer snould be re
spected and given a fair chance.
All farmers should stick togeth
er and stand up for their rights,
and think before acting, and not
be so ready to kick out of the
traces if everything is not done
just as they want it. They must
recollect that a few representatives
can't pass laws themselves, and if
they can't get a majority to go
with them they cannot make a law,
it-don't matter how hard they
: The people, or at least a great
many of them, will be glad when
the campaign is over, unless it
could go on in peace and harmony.
It's rather disgusting the way the
candidates and people act. At
every place there is some one in
the crowd always ready to get up
a fuss, which ought not to be al
lowed. Give every candidate a fair
showing, and let him have his say,
even if its not worth hearing. It
seems that some of the candidates
are getting to be desperate, as they
see_there is not much chance . for
them to be elected. They are find
ing'fault with the nominating ma
chinery at this late day, and want
different wheels put in to roll them
into'office, but it don't matter how
many wheels they have, big or
little, and what material they are
made of, if the right material is
not in the candidate he never can
be rolled into the office he is so
anxious for. Some men criticise
severely the way some candidates
act and get elected to office, and at
the same time they would do just
as those they complain of do, if
they only were smart enough.
I expected this campaign to be
carried on on a high plane, as an
old war horse was in the race who
has been in office a long while, but
was ^mistaken. He, it seems, loses
his temper as we^ll as other mortals,
and picks up very small things to
fight with, which has not done him
any good, but rather the reverse.
If there is any sign in the action^
of men at the campaign meetings
Gov. Tillman will be the next
United States Senator.

Some Good. Words for Candidate
In justice t-D MP. L. P. Harling,
who has been announced as a can
didate before the Democratic pri
maries for the nomination as a
member in the State Legislature,
we his neighbors truthfully say,
that owing to the condition and
extreme illness of hiswite, he will
not be able to thoroughly canvass
Edgefield county, and any appar
ent inactivity on his part is thus
explained in this card.
We are induced to say that Mr.
Harling lives in a very rich and
populous section of the country,
known as Shatterfield. The lands
are good, and their high assessed
value brings a large revenue into
the State and county treasuries.
This, together with the dense white
population, entitles this section of
country to at least one representa
tive in the House of Representa
tives. Moreover this section of
country has never been represent
ed since the days of the lamented
Mr. Harling will veli care for the
interest of the farming class, and
his good sense and integrity bf
character will allow no detriment
to befall his constituency. His
war record will compare favorably
with that of any survivor. A lad
of 16 years, he entered the service,
and for four long, gloomy years,
stood to his post, braving every
deadly conflict that his regiment
encountered, and was never absent
but twenty days. His patriotism
led him as the organizer of the
Confederate Survivors Association
in this county, knowing that to
celebrate the memorable days and
heroic deeds of a nation is its life
and prosperity. The Alliance, at
its incipiency, had no stronger ad
vocate, and for two years he com
manded the respect and esteem of
sub-Alliance No. 178 at Liberty
Hill, aB its president.
Mr. Harling is a Reformer, and
we, as his neighbors, can well as
sure the voters of Edgefield county
that he will at all times be found
at his post battling for the rights
of his countrymen, and never will
he surrender as long as there is
one shot in the locker.
