The editor of the Southern Chris
tian Advocate in irs last issue has the
following pleasant words to say of
Parksville and its people, distinguish
ed and otherwise: "The town lof
Parksville is about 33 miles from .Au
gusta, bas about 250 inhabitants, fqpr
or live stores, including, all sizes, a
Baptist and a Methodist Church for
whites and a Baptist Church for color
ed people. It has a good school, well
attended, lt is the home of the Hon.
W. J. Talbert, M. C., who is a consis
tent member of the Baptist Church.
The citizens of the place are peaceable
and energetic, and a distinctly religi
ous sentiment prevails. Some large
plantations near by make its surround
ing country a sparsely settled region.
Nine miles below Parksville is Clark's
Hill, the home of ex-Congressman
Geo. D. Tillman. His dwelling, a com
modious cottage-plan building, evi
dently constructed more for solid
comfort than outward show, is only
about 150 yards from the station. The
territory served by Brother Wilkes
bas the fortune of producing men dis
tinguished in affairs of State.'
When you ask a man to subscribe
for your paper, and he says: "Oh, I
never read much, and, beside:), times
are too plagued tight,' apologize to him
for making the mistake and leave
him. Life is too short to waste time
trying to teach a jackass to sing
soprano. All gentlemen, nowadays,
reads newspapers and lots of them.
Show us a man who lives for years in
a town or county and never subscribes
for the papers published there, and we
will show you a man whose head is

exceeded by his gall. 1 country news

For the Methodist Orphanage.
There will be an entertainment at
Harmony, in the school house, on Fri
day night of this week for the bene
fit of the Methodist Orphanage soon to
be established in Columbia. The doors
will be open at 7 o'clock p. m., and a

There will also be refreshments. It is

Painful Accident. .
On last Saturday while our popular
fellow-townsman. Mr. Epps Norris,
was at the depot looking after his
freight, a bale of cotton that was be
ing unloaded from a wagon accident
ally fell on him fracturing his collar ,
bone and inflicting other painful in
juries. His many friends regret the
unfortunate accident, but rejoice that
it was not more serious. Mr. Norris ?
is resting comfortably, we understand, i
and hopes soon to be out again.
The Thoruwell Orphanage. 1
This Institution is a family-school
for orphan children, who are left in ?
poverty by the death of their parents.
It is located in Clinton, South Caroli
na, in the upper or piedmont section
of the state. The healthfulness of the ,
same is shown by the fact that in twen
ty years, there have been only three
deaths among the orphans. The chil*
dren are received from any section of
the Union and from any denomina
tion. There were 130 orphans ander
its ca.e last year from twelve differ
ent states and ten denominations. It
is however, under Presbyterian son
trol. Orphans aje not legally surren
dered to the Institution, but are ad
mitted to be educated, and sent out
prepared to take care of themse ves.
They are, therefore, taught to use both
head and hand, the industrial coarse
being full and thorough and the
school-work, being equally satisfacto
ry. The support of this Institution is
wholly voluntary. It is almost with
out endowment, depending upon the
good will of the people for its main
tainance. Gifts of provisions, cloth
ing and money, in response to notices
like this constitute its source of in
come. Docing the past year, the fami
ly was maintained and all salaries
paid. And that bas been its wonder
ful experience for twenty years.
Thanksgiving and Christmas days are
here. Surely this is a good time to
remember the orphans. Gifts should
be sent to JRev. Wm. P. Jacobs, Thorn
well Orphanage, Clinton, 8.C.
How to Cure Meat.
'? lie Piedmont Headlight says: Dr.
Irby, o? Laurens, cures the finest hams
we ever tastrd, and they have a state
wide reputation. They are cured after
the old aute-belktm Virginia fashior.
The Doctor says to save meat you mu. t
use coarse Liverpool salt, for the
American salt won't answer if the
weather turns warm. Dr. Irby trims
his hams and joints close, when they
are thoroughly salted. About March
be covers each ham with a thin coat
ing of molasses, and then sprinkles
black pepper over them. When smok
ed, the molasses and pepper seem to
enter the meat, and impart a delicious
flavor. Besides, they exclude all in
sects. Do not cover the skin, but only
the portions of the ham that have been
cut. If you try this recipe, you will
find the sweetest and nicest hams you
ever tasted. Dr. Irby says if yon will
follow his directions, and use coarse
liverpool salt, you will never lose your
meat, unless the weather turns off
warm and rainy after killing.
To the Methodists Particularly,
and Friends Generally.
Under the direction of the P. &
H. M. Society, there will be ser
vice in our Methodsist church at
ll o'clock on the day set apart for
Thanksgiving. This service is to
be in the inte.est of our village
church for the purpose of decreas
ing the church debt.
We cordially invite tho co-oper
ation of the Methodists of neigh
borhood churches. Surely no heart,
old or young, can withhold a pen
uy, if no mbre, as the expression
of gratitude to God for His lov
ing kindness. Brother Stackhouse
will preach for us.
