DEAR OLD ADVERTISER : To one
who sits five hundred miles away
from home, and indulges his mind
in sceues of the past, nothing is
more refreshing than writing to an
old familiar paper, which holds its
owtr amid wreck and ruin.
It was his simplicity of style
that immortalized the name of
Washington Irving, and which to
this day holds their readers of his
books spell bound. So I hope that
what I have to say on this occasion
may in like manner interest your
There is no time in life-.when
time herself seems to rise as it
wei? ^n" p??T?ti s"of gre^ r e srv%lo ci ry
as when one is making prepara
tion to leave home. Such at least
was the case with myself on last
Saturday when the time for my
departure was drawing neai.
After a protracted hand shaking
and repeated farewells on last Sun
day evening, I set out iii company
with Mr. J. R. Rodgers for Wards,
where I spent the night with Col.
C. Ward. There I had the pleas
ure of meeting my friends Mrs. J.
T. and Mr. J. H. Lewis, of John
ston ; but before I board the train
on Monday let us say something
about Col. and Mrs. Ward. In the
first p!ace, they have one of the
most beautiful homes in Edgefield
county. If I were a fine writer of
romance, I would look for no more
appropriate place to get my in
spiration than the home of Col.
Ward. Situated among a cluster of
beautiful trees, 6et off here and
there by the most beautiful of
hedges, it is a home that extends its
hospitality impartially to all.I have
never seen a more hospitable cou
ple than Col. Ward and wife. The
Colonel is a very interesting talker
on al must any subject. He knows
a great deal about politics. He
says he is not certain that he will,
bat we think if his friends etil on
him he will not refuse to enter the
race two years hence, and he would
make EdgefieJd a good representa
tive goes without saying.
Yes, on Mondar morning we took
the train and carried it to Augusta,
but after we got there, in company
with Mr. Clarence Mathis, a young ,
mau of Red Bank, who was on his
way to Marietta, Ga., we left the
train to its fate and went to call ?
on Mr. Billie Edwards, a son of
Mr. Joshua Edwards, of the Red
Bauk section. We found Billie
way down there on Broad Street,
and Billie looked scared. We
thought he must have been afraid
some of those big high houses
might be rent and fall upon him
while they dislocated his bones.
After we got tired of Augusta we
went down to the uuion shed and
took another train for Atlanta.
Lauding there about 6 P. M., we
met several college boys bound for
Nashville. After spending two
hours in Atlanta, we started for
Nashville, which place, we reached
next morning about 6 o'clock.
When we got here to the old Col
lege it looked just like it did last
summer when we left it. Many of
the old students are here again,
and many new ones have come in,
making in all over six hundred.
Those students come from all the
Southern States. Those old feel
lings of college friendship whir.
?can be read in the emotions of tl
boys and girls, after along al
scence are indescrible. If I we]
to undertake to tell of the advan
ages of this institution, lam afrai
my hair would turn gray before
could get through. I wish I coul
impress the youth of Edgefiel
county about this place. It wi
cost tbem no more to come hei
than it does to attend school tber
Here they can attend a universit
with but little expense, if the
only knew it. .
If I had time and space I shoul
like to 6ay something about th
public school system of Sout
Carolina, because it is by no mean
what the people need or what the
should have. If my countryme:
are satisfied with their school syE
tem, I beg to differ froinjbem, an
differ widely at that. I know o
no other State with a school sy?
tem so inferior, so inadequate, a
that which is in our State. Th
people are stirred up and run wilt
over politics, but this schoo
question, which so individuall;
concerns them, they ignore. If ou
people hope to make life a succese
if they intend lo live that lifi
predestined for man, they muBt bi

the words "It is not all of life ti

saying. We hope our people wil

Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 6.
The Supreme Court of the Stat?
of South Carolina has decided ir
favor of the dispensary act. It ii
now declared constitutional. Ai
such it will be enforced. It is tb?
duty of the sworn officers of th?
law to see that all laws are properl}
executed, and that it is the duty o]
the people io submit to the powert
that, be, to obe}r the laws, to stanc
for law and order, and in the name
of peace and good will try to pre
vent violations of the law. It maj
be, iu the opinion of some people,
an obnoxious, law.; it may be_irj
the opinion of some unwise legis
lation, and bad law; it may come
in conflict with the tasteB and
prejudices of some people; but let
all such remember that it is now
law, it is declared by the highest
court in the State to be constitu
tional, and as good, law abiding
citizens, we must see that the law
is obeyed and enforced. We hope
that it will be enforced with wis
dom, prudence, and equity. We
hope that, the illicit sale of liquor
will cease without the intervention
of the officers of .the law. But if
people will not obey the laws, if
they will persist in carrying on an
illegal traffic, knowing as they do
the consequences, then we shall
expsct the appointed officers to do
their duty. Let every officer in
the discharge of his duty exercise
due caution, patience, moderation.
Let Christian people act soberly,
discreetly, and always and under
all circumstances be found on the
side of law and good order.-Bap

RAIDING BLIND TIGERS
The Successful Work of Constable
Eichelberger and His
The fraternity of "blind tigers'
willj yet learn that there is a grea
deal of danger and very little profi
in trying to pursue their unlawful
calling in Greenville. Men wh(
openly or secretly violate the lav
must expect that justice will over
take them sooner or later, and th?
fact that they are known as formei
dealers in liquor only makes it the
easier for the authorities to get the
evidence against them. No man
who ^"h?B kept;a liquor saloon car
engage now in the unlawful traffic
withou?r?tning a" constant risk ol
being caught, and it is useless foi
him to buy dud sell liquor without
expecting that some one will find
it out. . He cannot do any consid
erable business without selling to
p'ejrsbns who will betray him when
it is their interest to do so or when
they wish to get reveLge for real
or imaginary wrongs.
Constable Eichelberger returned
to pur city last week, after making
a number of successful raids in
Spartanburg. He came here to
transact a little business in his
line, and the outlook was favorable
in the extreme. Since the trials
of |R. E. Tork and Sol Edel,last
mopth, the illegal traffic has been
coifducted with more caution, but
it was only hidden not suppressed.
The rendezvous was not changed,
mitthe arrangements for conceal
ment were better guarded. Out
houses were us?d for the storage of
Hquor, and only a email supply
was kept in the main buildings.
i On Friday last, armed with war
rants duly issued, Constable
Eichelberger and his assistants
made- a successful raid upon the
premises of James E. Payne in the
>Jest End, wheie a capture waB
made that left no doubt as to "tile
presence of the blind tiger. A va
cant store in the rear of Payne
was the receptacle for corn audrye
whiskey, beer, and brandy. The
quantity seized is enough to justify
the opinion that the traffic was
carried on, while the beer on 13e
shows that customers were not
kept waiting. The liquor seized is
valued at 8175, and it was duly
confiscated by the constables.
Another raid was soon inaugu
rated, and the officers were repaid
for their trouble by seizing a quan
tity of liquor from E. H. Tork,
near the Air Lino depot. The
seizure included the usual variety
of corn and rve whiskey, brandy,
and beer, which was found con
cealed in an outhouse on the prem
ises, and is valued at $75. This
seizure develops the fact that the
tiger is hunting a lair wherein he
can secrete goods from the public
gaze, while keeping a handy place
of rendezvous for the thirsty. It
also proves that the constables are
getting familiar with the habits
and propensities of the tiger, which
will make it more and more diffi
cult to escape their vigilance.
These raids are creating uneasi
ness in liquor circles, and the in
quiry has been made by interested
parties whether Gov. Tillman will
not declare a general amnesty if
the Supreme Court sustains the
dispensary law. No one knows
what he will do in the premises,
but it is the safest for men who
are selling liquor under the bogus
license of the city council to quit
the business without delay.
How Old is thc Potato?
The potato was introduced in
Europe from the Western hemis
phere. History has it that Chris
topher Columbus was the first Eu
ropean who ever tasted a potato.
It is doubtful if he ever enjoyed
eating our favorite tuber. At all
events, the vegetable that he ate at
Cuba, in 1492, and brought home
to Genoa, was a sweet potato. The
first potato grown East of the
Atlantic Ocean was planted by
Claudius, iu the botanical gardens
of Vienna, in 1588. As is well
known, Sir Walter Raleigh found
the potato iu Virginia, and touk
specimens' back to England. The
original home of the popular tuber
is Chile. It was brought North by
For many years the potato in
England was looked upon as being
poisonous and unwholesome. This,
perhaps is not to be wondered at,
as it was commonly eaten raw, the
method of cooking it not being
known. Gradually it's usefulness
as a palatable vegetable became
known. A committee of the Royal
Society urged, in 1652, that all the
fellows who possessed land should
"plant potatoes and persuade their
friends to do the same in order to
alleviate the distress that would
accompany a scarcity of food." In
1738 the first field of potatoes wa3
planted in the lowlands of Scot>
As soon as the people of Ireland
knew how to cook the potato it
quickly became the one leading
vegetable of the land. Its cheap
ness of cultivation, large yields,
and nutritive qualities made it be
come immensely popular, and as it
was the chief article of food, it
ere long obtained its present com
mon name-Irish potato. It is
not only of value as a food plant.
The Irish were the first to discover
that whiskey could be made from
it. Starch is made from it for the
laundry and for the manufacture
of farina. The dried pulp from
which the starch has been extract
ed is used for making boxes. From
the stem and leaves a narcotic is
extracted. In some places cakes
and puddings are made from the
"He's er Seben-'JLeben."
The correspondent of the At
lanta Constitution while in Colum
bia the other day accosted an old
Edgefield darkey and asked him a
few questions about Gov. Tillman's
chances of being elected to the
Senate. Old Uncle Sambo replied
as follows :
Lor', young masser, what you ax
me sich question dat fer? Don't
you know Mars Ben Tillman gwine
up yonder to Washington and take
Mars Mat Butler's seat in de great
senat what we's been hearin' ain't

President Cleveland? Cose Mars.
Ben Tillman gwine to be elected.
W'y dat man's jist as slick as ole

-noted character^crMhe olden days,
a product of Edgefield. who is old
and gray now, though as pure a
blooded African as was ever landed
by a slave ship upon these shores,
looked upon me with an expression
of pity and regret. Then he went
"Yes, sar, when Mars Ben Till
