VOL. LVIII. NO. 39.
Caused by an Editorial in thc
COLUMBIA, S. C., Aug. 15.-Edi
tor Geo. R. Koester, of The Colum
bia Register, and Lawyer W.
Gibbes Whale-y, the leading Till
manite of Charleston, indulged in
a fisticuff in the lobby of the
Jerome hotel this afternoon. Mr.
Koester gave offence in an edito
rial in the Regisier of August 14,
in which he stated that in Char
leston last Saturday a gentleman
accused Whaley of cowardice, Mr.
Koester being himself the gentle
man referred to. Whaley arrived
here this afternoon to attend the
Reform State convention tomor
row. On being shown the editori
al he addressed a note to Koester
charging him with "perverting the
truth of a conversation," and ut
tering deliberate falsehood. Koes
ter walked over to the Jerome,
where a number of delegates were
collected, and accosted Whaley.
Some conversation ensued, and
Whaley demanded to know if
Koester intended to charge him
with cowardice in Charleston.
Koester replied that he did, where
upon Whaley struck at him, or
slapped him in the face (Whale}
says the latter.) Koester struck
back and bystanders interposed.
But as the combatants were being
pulled apart one of the Charleston
delegates hit Koester a severe blow
under the ear. Koester says he
was then struck several times. No
further trouble between the two
men is looked for.
The Dog That Went to the
An incident which would seem
to prove that a dog learns to un
derstand the language of his coun
try was related by one willing to
vouch for its truth. And this is
the story :
A dog had come to be very old
in a family in a country village.
One of the family remarked on a
certain day, as the dog lay, in the
"I think Sancho ought to be put
out of the way. He is only a nui
That afternoon Sancho disap
peared, and as the days passed did
not return. In the course of a
week a neighbor said : * "I see that
your dog is up at the poorhouse."
On inquiry it was learned that
Sancho, having called at the poor
house and been kindly received,
had continued on as a guest. And
ever after, although he sometimes
made a brief call at his own home
he lived at the Town Farm, and
there peacefully ended hie dog's
Possibilities of Natural Gas.
The possibilities of natural gas
evidently have not yet been ex
hausted. The latest use which
would seem to have been found for
it is the making of ice, the idea
being to simply expand the gas
from its usually high initial pres
sure down to, or near, that of the
atmosphere, nature having done
all the preliminary work of com
pression and cooling, making the
gas ready to absorb heat from its
surroundings immediately upon
being released from confinement.
AU that would be necessary would
be suitable coils or chambers into
which the gas could be allowed to
expand. It has been calculated
out quite plausibly, in fact, that
with ordinary gas well, furnishing
I, 500,000 cubic feet per day, some
thing like fifty tons of ice could
be turned out daily at an expense
of about 50 cents a ton. The gas
loses nothing but its pressure, re
taining all its calorific value, and,
hence, all its virtue for rolling mill
and glass works use, for heating
blick, lime, and pottery kilns, and
the endless number of ether fur
naces to which it is adapted. In
a certain way, therefore the gas
may be regarded as affording some
thing for nothing-a desideratum
to which many in this world are
constantly looking forward.
The Dog Days.
These are the dog days. They
begin July 2 and ended August
II. They have nothing to do with
the dogs beyond making those ani
mals uncomfortable, like the rest
of us, from the heat. They get
their name from the fact that
Sirius, the brightest star in the
constellation of the Great Dog,
and called the Dog star, on these
days rises and sets with the sun.
You can see Sirius any bright win
ter night. It is a beautiful bluish
star, as bright as -Tupiter, and rises
soon after Orion, the great giant
who has stars for a belt and stars
for a sword. The ancients, *xho
did not Know enougL to discover
that the world was round or moyed
around the sun, took notice that
the days when tho Dog star kept
pace with the sun they had the
greatest heat, and they thought,
therefore that this star produced

Many a life has been saved by
means of some little scrap of in
formation picked up at odd times
and stored away in a corner of the
brain until wanted. Two weeks
ago The Times told you what to do
in case a companion \va6 apparent
ly drowned, and, also, bow you
could often keep yourself afloat
till assistance arrived, or even get
to shore if not far out, by "tread
ing water." Here is another item.
If you or a companion should be
bitten by a dog or a snake, suck
the wound as hard aud aB long as
you can. You would not be likely
to swallow the blood, but if you
were io do so it would not hurt
you, for such poison is serious on
ly when injected into the veins or j
arteries. The life of an English
King, Edward I., was once saved
by his brave wife, the Good Queen
Eleanor, who sucked the wound

There are 811 patients at the
State Asylum, and for the last few
days there have been additions of
one a day. The Board of RegentB
considered the situation and de
cided to return thirty-five to their
homes. Of this number fifteen
are white men, four are white wo
men and the others are colored.
Of this number many are cured
while the others are in such condi
tion that they can be cared for at
home as well as at the Asylum.
The largest number that has been
in the Asylum previous to this
rush was seven hundred and
ninety-eight. It is probable that
the Regents will ask for an appro
priation with which to build a safe
place for the poor colored patients.
Many of them now have to be
quartered in wooden buildings,
which is exceedingly dangerous.

"Van Star" Imagines Himself
Speaking to tbe Disappointed
Candidates Alter the Pri
mary is Over.
Ladies and fellow disappointed
That feeling of sympathy which
stirs every human heart at the sight
of sad disappointment burns in
my bosom at present. Being some
what subject to disappointment of
late years myself, I know better
how to extend you my entire sym
pathy, and,. if possible, speak a
word that might soothe your bleed
Oh, how often have I wished that
Time herself could retrace her in
evitable footsteps, and once more
land me safely upon the happy
shore of innocent childhood, where
I could for a little while put away
the sad realities of disappointed
anticipations, and revel in that
happy fruition which alone visits
the human heart at that age.
Would that I could command lan
guage so pleasant, so calm, and so
balsamic in its nature that ere the
setting of the sun, joy, not sadness,
would-fill your souls !
I thank God that I was born in
an age when I can be some conso
lation to you who wear the fetters
of disappointment. But cheer up,
fellow citizens ; the poet who wrote
the immortal lines, "There is no
place like home," was surely the
mouth-piece of the human race.
That poet represented the whole
world, while those, your more for
tunate brethren^ can only represent
a 6mall portion thereof.
I tell you, my dear, sad friends,
it is not the man who fills the high
est position in life that always does
the most good for his country. If
your intentions were good, and you
aspired to office for the purpose of
Uonefitnng your depressed fellow
countrymen, you will certainly not
cease to be a hero at home. I tell
you, fellow citizens, I have been
thinking about politics for 6ome
weeks,-and if .1 tell' you the-truth,
(an honest confession is good for
the soul,) I humbly confess that I
have had a "huge" war with my
conscience. My conscience brought
up the question stated somewhat
like this : "Resolved, That all can
didates do not run for the purpose
of helping their fellow men, but
aim at Ego pure and simple."
But you know men generally
conquer their conscience ; so I can
say in a round-about kind of way
that I have conquered mine.
But I am deviating somewhat
from my subject. I came here to
day to console you, and it seems,
from the means I am using, I shall
fall short of the desired and. I am
aware at this moment, when dis
appointment alone weighs upon
your minds, an appeal to your rea
son is a poor alternative for sym
I tell you, gentlemen, there is
6uch a host of you that my reason
suggests that I advise you to re
sort to the gentle love and sym
pathy of your consorts in this the
day of tribulation. Oh, the wis
dom of Divine Providence! He
knew there would be days in a
man's life when despondency
would almost drive him to despair,
and so He made woman, the im
personation of all that is tender,
affectionate, lovely, sympathetic.
Go to her, my dear friends, who is
ever ready to strew your path with
flowers, the fragrance of which
shall reach the Bides on high. And,
you, gentlemen, who have no wives
m this your day of trial, where is
your hope? I can oiler you noth
ing, save remind you of the folly
of having entered this campaign
Again, it should be a source of
great consolation to you, when you
think of the fearful responsibility
resting upon the elect, to know that
your fellow citizens have been so
kind as to relieve you of such re
sponsibility. Do you not know
tha4; there will come divers diffi
culties and temptations so as to
almost deceive the elect thorn'
selves? Why must I tell you of
these things? Is not your observa
tion sufficient for you?
Finally, I wish to tell you before
I close, that notwithstanding my
short speech, I feel that some good
has come to us all from this meet
ing. I trust I may have the pleas
ure of mtetiug you all again on
this side ot the grave, when these
hot tears that now scorch your
troubled cheeks shall Lave been
wiped away, and when you shall
have been promoted by a grateful
people aecording to your merits.
It. is with unbounded confidence
that I believe you will now return
to your respective habitations and1
work for the good and prosperity
of our people; always trusting in
Providence with the greatest con
fidence inasmuch as you have now
realized that his words are true,
"Many are called, but few are
chosen." VAN STAR.

Another Damnation Piece-Or
Pm a Nigger.
Presuming that a Reformer has
the right to speak and to ask ques
tions, we will ask, what moral,
binding force there is in the farcical
election held,- or pretended to be
held in Edgefield county and all
over the State on Saturday, Aug.
It is safe to assume that not one
half of those claiming to be Re
formers voted, to say nothing of
the good men belonging to the
Conservatives. If not one-half,
possibly not one-third bf the domi
nant faction- voted on Saturday for
those they propose to send to the
Legislature, from whence" comes
the power to whip the other half
into tine ?ud compel them to sup
port the ticket that was put out at
Edgefield. on Monday? It comes
from nowhere, in fact it does not
exist and consequently those who
did not vote on Saturday will vote
for whomsoever they pleaae re
gardless of the action taken at
Edgefield; and the 28th day of
August, A. D. 1894, will be a day
of startling revelations. Mark it,
Mr. Editor, that slato will be
smashed into smitherens that day
in so far as Edgefield county is con
cerned. Too much power makes
people mad. It made Csesar mad,
it made Napoleon mad, it made
Wolsey mad, it made Wade Hamp
ton, glorious old Wade Hampton,
mad, and there seems to be danger
of the grand Reform party of our
State going into a sert of dementia.
Too much power and insatiable
ambition coupled together will ruin
any government,-State, or nation.
Reformers, beware 1 Beware of the
wrath to come ! ?
A wrath that may be bottled up
this time and corked down, but
which is bilin', sizlin', and fizlin',
and will sooner or later blow out
the stopper, bust the bottle, and
deal damnation round the land

OFFICE OF J. F. GREER,
GREEN COVE SPRINGS, CLAY CO.,
FLA., May 23rd, 1891.
Gentlemen : Twenty-three years
ago I was attacked with inflama
tory rheumatism, I was attended
by the most eminent physicians in
the land. I visited the great Sara
toga Springs, N. Y., and the noted
Hot Springs, of Arkansas, and
many other watering places, and
always consulting with the local
physician for directions; finally
came to Florida ten years ago.
About two years ago I had a se
vere attack of rheumatism, was
confined to my room for twelve
weeks, and during the time I was
induced to try P. P. P., [Prickly

good for impurities of the blood,

small bottles of P. P. P. and been
relieved, and I' consider it the best
medicine of its kind.

Mr. M. F. Tighe, the historian of
the Reform movement in South
Carolina, has never produced his
threatened volume on the subject.
Perhaps it is just as well that he
has not, for, apart from the fact
that, as the secretary, amicus
curiae and general brains carrier
of one of the shiniug lights of the
movement, he is scarcely in a po
sition to treat the subject with the
impartiality which befits history.
The Reform movement is still un

In two of the Southern States,
