Breeding: for Speed.
Geni. Butler has forty-one breeds of
bogs on his stock farm in the suburbs
of our town. Among others we name
the Berkshires, Chesters, Poland Chi
nas, Rhaniseutahs. and Razorbacks.
The General is a great believer in the
survival of the littest and he hopes by
mixing up the breeds in this way that
a struggle will be produced that will
evolute a breed the fittest of all others
for this climate and this people. His
special aim is to get a plump, rotund
body on long slender, deer-like legs so
as to be fleet of foot, or in plain En
glish, he wants a beg that can outrun
a lugger and.still be easily fattened.
Now, whenceSxomes the report that
Geni. Butler is going into the repub
lican parly in the face of this fact,
that he is ostentatiously breeding np
to a species of swine that can outrun
the great majority of its voters and
the fleetest of its runners.

Again has Edgefleld to mourn the
loss of one of her most prominent
citizens. Dr. Seth Butler, after a pro
tracted illness, died at his home in our
town OP last Wednesday morning.
Deceased came of an old and honored
Edgefleld family, and was a quiet, un
obtrusive law-abiding citizen. His
most prominent characteristics were
bis industry, attention to business,
und devotion to his family.
Deceased was buried in our "city

where Dr. Gwaltney preached the fu

Oscar Barr was always genial and

was often heavy and grievous, he never
