All kinds of fruit will yield much
larger crops of more perfect fruit in
localities where there are bees than
where there are no bees kept, andi
some kinds, such as strawberries,

Wheat TS. Oats.
Tbe wheat crop is good in Edgefield
county but the oat crop is very poor.
This reminds us of the statement we
have seen published that wheat as a
forage crop has superseded oats and
even timothy hay in some sections. A
livery stable mao from Kentucky, in
our town last w?ek, remarked, that in
his country farmers had in many in
stances given np other kiods of forage
and hay for whe.tt and that it, wheat,
was consid?r?e even better than
timothy, the king of bay crops. He
said the wheat in cut when in the milk
and cured and biJed. Some of our best
farmers agree in this estimate of wheat
for b*y and will try it ts such the
coming seiisoo. Hr. Chris. Williams of
our suburbs, ha.? experimented al
ready in this lina and is enthusiastic
for wheat as against oats for a forage
crop, and Chris, knows a good thing
when be sees it and sees it as soon as
any farmer in Eli ge field county.

The Edgefiek hungers Re-or
at Meriwa :er Hall
DEAR ADVERTISER : Cuba must
be free! but however all- right it
mav be, we have nothing to do
with it. Let us busy Luvselves
with graver and more important
matters. There was organized or
rather re-organized, atCheatham's
Store in Meriwether, in March last,
that one time illustrious troop of
horse-the ''Edgefield Rangers."
All Edgefield knew the Rangers
under the leadership of Capt. Jno.
A. Butler. At the organization
Capt. Butler waa again called to
the command. Walter Cheatham,
another old Ranger, was elected
1st Lieut, with J. B. Shaw and
Thos. H. Briggs second lieuten
ants. Several old members are to ?
be found in ranks, and the drill !
shows they have noe forgotten
The company bas dee ded to :
call attentiou to their existence
by giving a big barbecue, picnic, 1
and dance on the secoud of July 1
at the Meriwether Hall, and the 1
public is earvestly advised to be
present. Things are never done
by halves in the Meriwether pre
cinct, and they wont be this time.
So come everybody, come regard- 1
less of the weather, come Cuba or
no Cuba, come and laugh and go
home and you will live longer.

SELECTS HIS OWN JURY, SITS AS
JUDGE IN HIS OWN CASE AND, AS
A MATTER OF FACT IF NOT OF
LAW, CONVICTS THE PREACHER. ]
Editor Advertiser : If we do not
get free silver at Chicago, it is our
duty to bolt. This is so apparent,
that it seems a waste of tim? to ?
talk about >t. It is hardly neces
sary to prove a self-evident propo- 1
Bitiou. You enter into co-partner
ship with A and B. You soon find <
that their methods, if persiste? in,
will . run the business into the
ground. You remonstrate with ;
them, and try to get them to pur- <
sue a different policy, but they re- '
fuse. Heve you not the uudeuia- ;
ble right to withdraw from the
firm, and to form a co-partnership ,
with C and D, who are prospering,
and in whose methods you have
confidence? I dare any one to de
ny that. We now have a political :
co-partnership with Mr. Yankee,
who is running our business, and
we propo3e to withdraw f.-om the
firm, and to form a co-partner
ship with Mr. Western Man, whom
we consider more honest and reli
able. Is jhere any harm in that?
But I have another illustration, 1
and a better one still. You are a
member of au orthodox church.
Perhaps you helped to organize it.
It was organized for the purpose of
worshiping God. You go into a
Conference of the church, and fiud 1
a majority in favor of repudiating
the worship of God, ?.nd in favor
of worshipping the devil. You
pick up your hat and start out. A
good brother comes to you and
says: "Since you came into this
Conference, you are bouud by its
action. Don't you believe in ma
jority rule ? Stay with us and
worship the devil about four years,
and it may be by that time we will
have things our way again !" If I
mistake not, .you would look him
straight in the eye au I say:'"-Ei
ther you are a fool, or you take me
for one!" and you would continue
your progress toward the door.
Politically speaking, the mug- 1
wumps are the only decent, res- 1
pectable people in the country. If
it were not for the mugwumps, the <
political party in powei would al- ;
ways be in power, unless the other i
party conld raise the most chil- i
