Done With Guano.
The idea is very prevalent among
Edgefield county farmers that it
does not pay to use guano under
cotton, but it took 5 cents cotton to
bring them to this way of think

it paid to use ic when cotton was
ten cent-!, but at the present prices

And We Weep ip Record, and
Blush to Give It In.
MR. EDITOR: It is a notorious
fact that a large portion of the
political turmoil in our State is due
to the inflammatory editorials and
articles that from time to time ap
pear in our leading daily papers.
For the last decade the daily news
paper has been the bane and curse
of the land, as statements are made
in them which makes Truth hide
her face for shame at the tone of
sincerity in which they are uttered.
Let us take a casual glance at
four men who have been prominent
in the press of this State for the
last few years. '
The first on th^ scene is A. B.
Williams. The writer knew little I
ibout this man till our own JaB
Talbert "bowdaciously" lifted him
)ff the face of the earth in a news
paper controversy several years
igo. Since then,we have watched his ;
gyrations with interest. "AmaziD
Bosh'' is an extremist, a hot-head,
md to all appearances, a feather
lead, so far as his influence in
politics is concerned. His was
me of the leading spirits in the
last two Conservative conventions.
There also he waB over ridden in
bis efforts to bring about nomina
tions. No one, however, can fail
to admire Mr. Williams's pure,
classical, flowing style. His Eng
lish is superb.
Next is Mr. Hemphill. He may
be a good man, but oh, how weak !
He ?B, with the exception of the
Press and Reporter's editor, the
thinnest writer in the borders of
our State. He fills whole columns
with figures and statistics which
go to prove nothing and only paz
zle the reader's mind. "Old
Granny" esteems herself one of
the leading sheets in the Cotton
Belt, but she was never worse "off."
Let tho old crone croak on ; she is
nothing but a prophet of evil in
The Columbia State was con
ceived in Independentism, and
through the fostering care of her
editor, she has been loyal to hei
birth. B. R. Tillman owes mee to
N. G. Gonzales than say othor man
for keeping the Reform movement
together. His railings against the
dispensary law have helped to ren
der that enactment more popular
every Jay. He did his utmost to
widen the schism between the
Irby and Bowden factions last
spring, thereby bringing Tillmau
ites to their sensps. Taken all in
all, he is a useful man to the Re
form party. He is the tool of
Alex Haskell ; the exponent of an
effete, run-out aristocracy, and the
champion o* the shylock, tax
dodging, liquor element.
T. Larry Gantt is no man's
friend. Claiming to represent the
Reformers, he has slandered men
who fought the battles of the peo
ple, while he was making himself
obnoxious to the farmers of Geor
gia and failing generali}'. Brought
into our journalistic arena by Mr.
Calvo, like the viper that he is, he
thrust his fangs into the breast
that warmed him into life. Re
pudiated by the State Alliance;
sat down on in the Democratic
convention, "Terribly Larrupped"
is "browing his filth right and left.
His stock in trade is abuse and
mud-slinging, and riot and discord
are his boon companions. But with
all that Gantt is a forceful, scath
ing writer. While the construction
of his sentences is sometimes
faulty and his words used vaguely,
and frequently in the wrong sense,
yet for a certain species of bom
bastic eloquence, be is unsur

had been at work at a neighbor's
house during the day and was re

was probably secreted in the bushes
