orchards and vineyards have
failed to produce fruic until bees
were brought into the neighborhood.
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, and
some kinds, such as strawberries,

Wheat vs. Oats.
Tbe wheat crop is good in Edgefield
county but the ost crop is very poor.
This reminds us of the statemerit we
have seen published tbst whest as a
forage crop bas superseded oafs and
even timothy hay in some sections. A
livery stable man from Kentucky, in
our town last week, remarked, that in
bis country Farmers badin many in

and hay for wheat sr d that it, wheat,
was considered even better tbsn

the employment of electricity and
from the great advance made in the

to secure the economy of labor, time,

the soil and the plant. The Southern

DEAR ADVERTISER : Cuba must

may be, we have nothing to do

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. Ino.
A. Butler. At the organization
Capt. Butler was again called to
the command. Walter Cheatham,

Edit?r Advertiser : If we do not
jet free silver at Chicago, it is our
luty to bolt. This is so apparent,
hat it seems a waste of tim? to
;alk about it. It is hardly heces
<ary to prove a self-evident propo
rtion. You enter into co-partner
?hi;p* with A and B. iou soon find
;hat thalr methods, if persisted* in,
will . run the business into the
ground. Ycu remonstrate with
;bem, and try to get them to pur

o\e right to withdraw from the
5rm, and to form a co-partnership
(vith C and D, who are prospering,
iud in whose methods you have
?onfidence? I dare any one to de
ny that. We now have a political
jo-partnership with Mr. Yankee,
vho is running our business, and
ve propose to withdraw f ?om the
irm, and to form a co-partuer
?hip with Mr. Western Man, whom
ve consider more honest and reli
ible. Is }hore any harm in that?
But I have another illustration,
ind a better one still. You are a
nember of an orthodox church.
?erhap8 you helped to organize it.
't was organized for the purpose of
vorshiping God. You go into a
Conference of the church, and find
i majority in favor of repudiating
he worship of God, and in favor
)f worshipping the devil. You
>ick up your hat and start out. A
mod brother comes to you aud
jays; "Sinceyou came into this
Conference, you are bouud by its
ictiou. Don't you believe in ma
tority rule ? Stay with us and
ivor8hip the devil about four years,
md it may be by that time we will
jave things our way again !" If I
nistake not, .you would look him
jtraight in the eye an t say:'"Ei

for one !" and you would continue
