A gallant ex-Confederate living
near Vernonon, Alabama, who
served as a Kentucky volunteer
under Gen. Buckner during the
war, was asked by Mr. Sam Shields
the other day if he intended to
vote for bis comrade next Novem

"Gen. Buckner surrendered me
once, when I couldn't help myself,
but I don't intend that he shall do
Hanna Calls for Spellbinders.
Bryan will devote the last eight
davs of the campaign to Illinois?
He will speak fifteen times in the
city of Chicago alone, and if he
does'nt win he deserves to. Mark
Hanna is in Chicago already. He
arrived in that city on Friday
night last and, finding the situa
tion a little different fiom what he
expected, has been keeping the
wires to New York hot ever since.
His cry is for help. "Send on the
orators, we will educate these
people in spite of themselves" is
the burden of Mark's song. By the
way, Mark says he does'nt want
common speakers ho wants "spell
binders." In response to this ur
gent appeal Foraker, of Ohio; the
odore Roosevelt, of New York ;
Warren Miller, every republican
Governor, Seuator and congress
men without limit, are preparing
to go into the State from every
point of the compass. These are
to be under the leadership of Pres
ident Harrison who is devoting
the whole month of October to
campaigu speaking. On the other
side, to oppose thest; giants of the
party of tiusts and monopolies*
Bryan is almost all alone, but he
isa veiitable daisy and the people
are with him.
The South Carolina Synod of
the Presbyterian church convenes
at Orangeburg on the 27tb Octo
lt is reported upon the best au
thority that Mark Hanna has
.$8,o00,000 to be distributed in In
diana, Illinois, Iowa, and Ohio
"where it will do the most good."
Of this vast corruption fund
$2,000,000 are to be used in the
city of Chicago.
William J. Bryan says : "The suc
oepd of the'Chicago ticket is i.et
dangerous to any man who wants
to eat the bread he earns. The
success of the Chicago ticket is
dangerous only to the man who
wants to eat the bread that some
body else earns.
The report of the Agricultural
Department at Washing'on forth?
month of Octobei shows a general
average condition of the cotton
crop to be 60. a decline of 3A per
cent from last month. This is said
to be tho lowest general average
couditiou of this crop ever report
ed for the month of October, and
yet cotton continues to go down.
It has been suggested that COL..
gressman McLaurin be invited to
Charleston to tea-?h tho News ano
Courier and its followers democra
cy with a banquet afterwards to the
ypeaker, but it does'nt seem to
meet with much fayor. Would not
Duncan be a better selection than
McLaurin? He ought tobe kept
before the public until he tells it
The Barnwell People says:
' Gen. John M. Palmer, candidate
of, the so-called National Demo
crats, alias assistant Republicans^
for the Presidency, began life as a
cloclc peddler, rose to be a barrel
maker, fell to be a Republican,
repented and became a Dem icrat
and winds up by being anchored
iti the shallow political waters,
with his mate, Ex-Governor Buck
ner, as decoy ducks to draw silly
Democrats down to death."
Bryan is a wonderful man. Here
is his record for the campaign up
to date : Number of speeches de
livered, 268; cities and towns spo
ken in, 172; States spoken in, 22;
miles travelled since his nomina
tion, 8,030; estimated number of
words spoken on the stump, 230,800,
miles travelled by all other Dem
ocratic candidate since 1860, 6,196,
number of speeches delivered by
all other candidates, 166,
Themost profound thinkers of
our legislators elect are puzzled
beyond measure as to what shall be
done with the Dispensary law at
their uext meeting in January. And
if, in the meautime, the Supreme
court of the United S'ates shall at
its meetiug on next Monday de
clare the whole thing unconstitu
tional, they, will be more puzzled
than ever, for in such event South
Carolina would have prohibition
and thousands of gallons of whis
key ou hand belonging to the Slate
that could not be sold. It will lj;>
worse than "what you gwine tor do
when your meal gives out,' and it
may be that wo will have to give
rebates to the liquor dealers to in
duce them to take their stuff back
Four acres and a cow were ?nco
believed by the English agricul
tural classes to denote an ideal
condition of life. In this coun
try it is shown by ideal census fig
ures that there are twenty-seven
milk cows tor every 100 persons,
which means at least one cow for
every family, while the acreage is
far larger than the English ideal.
Perhaps the English farmer would
be thoroughly satisfied with this,
but the American is more ambi
tious, and looks for something bet
Hold Your Cotton Seed.
The Department of Agriculture
of Georgin advises farmers not to
sell their cottou seed for less than
15cts. a bushel as it is worth that
on the farm for manure, and to
tha oil mills as much. In a re
recent communication Commis
sioner Nesbitt says on this subject:
"I li a vo always endeavored to
convince the farmers of Georgia
that it would not pay them to sell
their cotfon seed at $7,00 per ton,
10^ cents a bushel. The haul of
the seed must be counted against
tho farmer, and cannot be estima
ted at less than $1.00 per ton, leav
ing him $6.00 per ton-or less than
9 cents per bushel. As meal is
selling for about $1S.00 per ton,
you will be giving three tons of
seed for one of meal.
Three tons of seed contain of
nitrogen 3b\6 pounds, of phospho
ric acid 5.2 pounds, and of potash
34.2 pounds, more than the ton ot
cotton seed meal, worth in the ag
gregate .$6.40. "When you bell your
seed do not do it for less than 15
cents per bushel or $10.00 per ton,
for when you sell for less you are
simply giving away valuable fer
tilizing material, nud not only giv
ing it away, but furnishing a team
and hauling it to the purchaser
yourself. In the above calcula
tion no value has been given to
the mechanical effect of tha whole
seed when used as a fertilizer,
though ev^ry farmer knows (hat in
useingthe whole seed he adds con
siderable humus to the soil, and
renders stiff t'hiy soils more fri
able and easier of cultivation.
Col. Mixs.m, State Liquor com
missioner, has resigned. In his
letter of resignation he says:
"It has been my desire for some
months to resign rny position as
State Commissioner, but on ac
count of the many rumers and
slanderous reports in circulation,
I could not alford to do so, prefer
ing to wait an, investigation by
your honorable board. Yon have
conducted the investigation and
have exonerated me folly from
any wrong-doing and I now len
der you this resignation to lake ef
fect as soon as you gentlemen can
uame my successor or i,? any other
manner relieve me of the duties."
The best land foi wheal should
be underlaid by a good, clay sub
soil, the situation should be hi^h
and dry, and the drainage suffi
cient. Towards the last of
this month is the usual time for
sowing in the more northern sec
tioned!: the cotton belt. At the
South the rad-bearded varieties ar<:
best suited. By careful selection
of soi s atid varieties, thorough
preparation and judicious fertiliz
ing, we may make a supply for
family use; but our section is not,
in the main, suited to the raising
of wheat, and it should not there
fore be made a leading crop. There
is very little land with us natural
ly rich enough for wheat, but it
may be made so artificially.- If
stable manure or cotton seed aro
used they should bo plowed in ; if
cottou seed meal or commercial
fertilizers, they may be harrowed.
But the land should be deeply
plowed and brought to a fine tilth.
After the seed are sown, roll. This
will give a firm seed bed and cause
a more uniform aud a better stand.
It will also lessen the danger of
injury from severe frost. As a fore
runner of wheat there is no better
crop than field peas.-Southern
