At the Spartanburg Convention
of last week held in tho in
terest of an exhibition of the re
sources of the South at Chicago^
Col. Geo. B. Lake was elected as
commissioner from Edgefield coun
ty. Let Edgefield aid him in eve
ry way possible in getting up at
least something respectable for
and from Edgefield County. The
object is a great one and may be
"made the means of building up
many of our waste places. Wo
snail have more to say from time
to time of the object and scope of
this Chicago exposition for the
Bamberg is to have a knitting mill,
so is Union, so is Lancaster. These
" plants cost from ten to fifteen
thousand dollars. The knitting
mill at Jonesville in Union is thus
spoken of by the Union Times :
"The building is completed and
has the following dimensions:
Length, eightv feet, width thirty
teen feet. The company has now
on hand twenty knitting machines,
aud will soon increase to full ca
pacity, seventy-five machines. The
company has a twenty horse pow
er engine, and a twentj'-five horse
power boiler, which is sufficient to
drive seventy-five machines. At
present fifteen machines will run
making men's half hose and five
will make ladies' half hose,
Twenty-five to thirty operatives
are employed at present. Each ma
chine can make eight dozen pairs
of socks per day. This mill will
make seamless hosiery, reinforced
heels and toes, and will use stam
in less dyes. Weight of hese li to 2

Tho Palmetto Regiment.
The only survivor of the Pal
metto Regiment in Charleston at
the Confederate Reunion of last
week was Qol. Blandiug of Sum
ter. He is thus spoken of and
speaks, in the News and Courier :
"One of the most interesting
characters aboard the steamer and
one who attracted considerable
attention was Col. Blandiug, of
Sumter, who is a veteran of two
wars and who volunteered for ser
vice in the Indian war. N<<ol.
Blanding was a captain in tho
Mexican army and in the late war
was colonel of the Sthygfjgmimrti
--SralTiforswhile he was telling of
the fate of the Palmetto regiment
that won glory for the State in its
Mexican compaign. The command
left the State witn 1,193 men and
returned with 232 men, after a
servico'of twenty-two months. Of
the survivors there now remain
but thirty-three, of whom Gen.
Dunovant, Gen. McGowan, Lieut.
Sumter, Capt. Beard and Col.
Blanding are the most generally
known. Col. Blanding was tell
ing how the old battle flag of the
regiment was lost during the late
war. It had been sent to Colum
bia for safe keeping and some one
took it away in the flight from Co
lumbia and it has never been
heard from since. The flag that
was presented teethe rpgknent by
Gen. Scott is still in existence, as

A Reformer Who is Still a Re
former, Bat Proposes to Vote
for Better Men in thc Fu
On yesterday evening, Friday,
the 24th, a severe storm passed
over here, (Meeting Street) blow
ing down fences and trees, but not
doing much damage otherwise.
Raia accompanied the storm, but
not half enough as wo were need
ing it badly. Wheat and oats can
not make unless they have plenty
of rain, neither can coru and cot
ton come up to a stand without
I am glad to say that the low
price of cotton in 1894 and 1895
did the country much good, al
though farmers could not see it at
the time, it was ablessing so thor
oughly disguised. Five cents cot
ton forced them to make corn and
bacon, while if cotton had brought
nine and ten cents the country
would have been bare of provi
sions. These same farmers used
to Hay "it is cheaper to buy corn,
flour, lard, bacon, butter, milk,
axe aud hoe handles, hames," in
fact they bought everything ex
cept cottou and depended on cot
ton to pay for it. The result was
big crops of cotton and low prices.
But last year the crop fell off two
million bales or more, asa conse
quence the price wpnt- up a little
tie and having made corn and ba
con the farmer was ou a better
footing. However iu this year, of
grace, 1896, they are agaiu turn
ing over the frying pan and pour
ing the fat into the fire by plant
ing a large crcp of cotton, and it
will take. a crop large enough to
run the price down to 2? cen's, per
pound to bring'em to their senses.
Wo farmers are a hard headed stiff
necked and rebellious people and
if the Great Ruler in his all wise
providence should decree that we
in 1S96 shall make 12 millions of
bales we would have enough cot
ton for one time, and get for it
about two cents a pound. If such
could be the case it might teach
us that a farm is intended for men
women and children to make their
living out of and have their own
provisions at their own house. But
some people say. "You might as
well sing psalms to a dead horse
as talk to farmers about making
their own provisions," and I be
lieve this i? the state of the case.

.nxious to serve their country and
work for the dear people. The
people ought to require them to
tell how they would vote on the
various bills that might come up
in the legislature, and relegate
them to the rear there forever to re
main unless they fulfil their prom
ises. Wo should be more part.cu
lar in the future than in the past,
as to electing good men to office. lu
1890 I voted for reform, and up to
the present time- out have not yet

any confidence in them. Neverthe

try to vote for better men in the

On the 22nd inst. Mrs. Katie
Timmerman died near McKen
dreei, said to be ninety-six or
ninety-seven years old, and on the
same day Mrs. W. E. Timmerman
also died, aged about fifty-five
years. On next day Rev. Mr.
Brabham preached their funerals
at McKendrees. They were both
interred in McKendree- cemetery.
This is the fourth time within my
recollection that two were buried
on the same day in this sacred
spot. Mr. Brabham's friends at
McKendrees were glad to meet
him one more time and are always
happy to entertain him.
