Ramsey ?fe Bland strike it when
they put their large stock at lowest
prices. This year is rather hard but
times are bound to improve, ami with
the returning prosperity, prices must
advance. The customer who buys now
and gets the benefit of both the times
and the reduction in rates, can safely
say he gets a good deal out of it.
lt is a pleasure to announce some
thing in the way of business, after the
long talk about the hardtimes, which
is like unto the good days of the past.
Is there any reason for keeping up the
moan? We think not, when Ramsey &
Bland are offering better bargains in
quality and better displays in quanti
ty than have before been seen in wag
ons, buggies, harness, furniture and
coth'ns and caskets.

Once More Into the Breach.
I have much to do-much to keep in
This waspish, wrong head, scribling
First Dido came, the nicest, cf them all :
George Johnston whooped and
straightway burst his gall.
But Pedagogue-he cusses, snorts, and
He yells, he weeps, and then sneaks
off and dies.
Sam Jones says, "The hit dog
hollers and the harder the lick the
louder he hollers." My friend
sa.^ s that I am ignorant of history.
I don't den\' it, but I have man
aged to learn thoroughly the histo
ry of a certain self-sacrificing hero
who has devoted his life to the
service of his county and State.
Being a young man I naturally
looked around for some model to
shape my course by. I could find
no better one than the career of
the ?inmortal Pedagogue. His
course can be truced in a track of
continuous light [rora his birth to
the present hour. He once even
offered Ul sacrifice himself to his
county by becoming schcol com
missioner, but old Edgefield did
not want her most famous BOU thus
to bury his light under a bushel
and did not accept this unprece
dented, sacrifice. He wanted to
martyr himself, again ehe said no :
he was importunate, she firm.
Since then he has served her (and
without pay too!) by scrutinizing
with a jealous eye all the actions
of her county officers since that
time and raises a bow-wow and
rumpus at every move. In the
words of Hugh Farley, "He is tit
only to raise Cain and keep hell
a-hrewing all the time."
But Pedagogue wants to be call
ed a reformer. Faugh! Pedagogue
would read me a lecture in man
ners. If he wishes me to lollow
his precepts be should have set un
example worthy of my imitation.
Dick Steele sayf?, "There is noth
ing ginns so much reputation for
a preacher as practising." Instead
of Pedagogue's exhibiting, his
lamblike courtes}', he opens the
windows of his wrath and pours
forth such a stream of vitupera
tive filth that his article fairly
reeks with it, even in print. They
say that a man always resorts to
cursing when he is iu the wrong
on any subject and gets pinned to
the earth in a controversy. I do
uot say it in a boasting mo^d, but
get every liue I have written and
compare, and if I hav'nt kicked
every single prop from under him
then cuss me for a nigger. He
virtually gives up the fortress in
his last piece for he does'nt say a
syllable about the question at is
sue. He merely dabs about and
picks out what he thinks to be
weak points and spews his saliva
Pedagogue, the theologians tell
us that antipathy to the Bible
arises from two causes: A de
praved, enfeebled, besotted, nar
row, shallow intellect or a base,
black, crime-steeped heart, re
sulting from an evil life. Whence
comes yotw fear? You wish to
wash your hands of the dear old
ADVERTISER just because a few of
us boys have been a little rough
through her columns-to wash
your bauds of the paper which has
"borne with your infirmaties all
the year, and through whose col
umns your misanthropy has found
vent, under various aliases, for
twenty years. "Ingratitude ! thou

He lays the cause of the dark
ages at the door of the Catholic
church. A man who has the least
smattering of historical knowledge
will laugh at thiis child's talk.
On the contrary, the Catholic

learning and civilization through
tho gloom of that dreadful night
which settled like a pall Over hu

field of argument and hopes to

low plane of crimination and re

My friend's objection to clergy
men's teaching in public schools
can be applied with equal force to
their holding college professor

In ?ospect to the allegation that
our denominational colleges incul

few words spoken by Rev. W. W.
Daniel, one of the ablest preachers
in the M. E. Conference, an
alumnus of Newberry College.
He spoke the words in an alumni
symposium not two months ago.

toted a tub about with him to sit

A CARD FROM MR. GAILES.
And a Tribute to the Delegates
EDITOR ADVERTISER : Allow me
to thank'n}' friends in all parts
of the county for the liberal vote
given me in the recent election.
While I am satisfied I was de
feated by the false report circula
te 1 that I am opposed to a home
stead exemption, yet I feel that it
is no discredit to be defeated by
such men as are elected. Look at
the six delegates elect; a State
Senator, a Lieut.-Governor, an Ex
Congressman, a Congressman, and
two Ex-Governors-one of the
latter United States Senator. In
view of this array, the large vote
I received is accepted as gratify
ing evidence of the confidence of
the people, and I congratulate
them and the gentlemen elected
on the fact, that Edgefield will
have, not only the ablest delega
tion in the Constitutional Con
vention, but. probably the ablest
that any county in tho State has
ever sent to any assembly.
