WEDNESDAY, NOV. 4,1896.
We should be glad to give our
readers tho delightful intelligence
that Bryan and Sewall have swept
the field. Bul-we just can't do it,
nor do we believe there is a man or
a paper on the continent fiat can
give the result before Friday morn
ing of this week, posfrib'y not then.
In ordinary Presidential years
there have been only three or four
pivotal States, but in this year of
grace there are a score or more and
we mu^t wait patiently and hope,
fully until all the figures are vi.
Of this much, however, we are sure
and that is that George Lake ha*
cleaned up Palmer aud Buckner
from the face of the earth. They
will be,heardof no more forever.
In Ihft last presidential election
mon than twelve millions of votes
were cast; to-day three millions
more will be put in the ballot
"There are solid grounds for be
lieving that a general, upward
trend to all prices is on, and that
the country is in for a period of
prosperity like that 1868 to 1873, \
following recovery from the panic
of 73-5 and the resumption of j
specie payments-a period of I
fjreat prosperity among farmers in
particular. The rise in prices
starts m the right place-with
farm produce. When farmers pros
per all industry thrives."

Gary Evans has been hardly no

They new let him alone. That is

Is This a Democrat?
Shortly after the war Gen. Pal
mer the head of the Palmer-Buck

Governor of Illinois. In ?, speech
made at Jennyville of that State
during the campaign, he used the
following phraseology :
"GIVE THE NEGRO THE
BALLOT, BECAUSE A LOYAL
NIGGER IS SUPERIOR TO A
WHITE REBEL, and the only
difference between the southern
rebel and the northern Democrat
was that the first li red south of the

"The brave nigger saved the

suddenly from behind a rising

No enduring fabric of national
prosperity can be builded on gold
Gold is the money of monarchs.
Kings covet it. The exchanges of
nations are affected by it. Ils
tendency is to accummulate in
vast masses to the commercial cen
ters and to move from kingdom to
kingdom in such volumes as to
unsettle values and stir up the
finances oi the world. It is the in
strument of gamblers and specula
tors and the ideal of the miser and
thief. The object of so much ado
ration, it becomes haughty and
sensitive, and shrinks at the a,>
approach of danger, and whenever
it ismo8t needed it always disap
pears at the slightest alarm. It be
gins to look for refuge. It flies
through the nati ms at war to the
nations at war to the nations at
War makes it a fugiti ;e. Ne peo
ple in agreat emergency ever found
a faithful ally in gold. It is the
most cowardly and treacherous of
all metals. It makes no treaty
that it does not break. It has no
friends whom it does not sooner or
"ater betray. Armies and navies
are not maintained by gold. In
ime of panic -end calamity, ship
wreck and disaster, it becomes the
hief agent and minister of ruin,
"o nation ever fought a great war
by the aid of gold On the con
rary, in the crisis of greatest peril
becomes an enemy more potent
han the foe in the field. But when
e battle is won and peuce haB

^aims the fruits of victory.-John

Newelton, La., Oct. 29.-Tensas
Parish has again been visited by
a roost destructive cyclone. The
atmosphere had been hea?y and
sultry all day, the clouds growiug
blacker aud blacker, aud at 2
o'clock a terrific wiud and rain
storm reacher Lake St. Joseph.
Telegraph wi rep were torn down,
and a most unsatisfactory report
reaches here from the lower part
of ihe parish, where the tornado
originated. Information is that
the immense brick gin on the
mound plantation, belonging to
Mr. Joe Curryn, was practically
destroyed. The course cf the storm
was from S juthwest to Northeast,
striking Brueu Lake at Locust
Laud, tearing down and destro}'iijg
the public bridge over Cheraw
Bayou. Twelve cabins on Locust
Land were completely demolished
aud two colored mon and two col
ored women aud a baby were
killed by lightniug or blown into
The next place reached was
Johnson's Bend, on Lake St. Jo
seph. 'Ihe scene is one of desola
tion. Johnson's Bend is leased by
Mr. A. Bland. The gin house con
tained a great quantity of hay aud
was totally wrecked. Three barns
containing corn were also destroy
ed and a great deal of corn was
blown away. Six cabins were blown
to pieces entirely aud many tim
bers were blown into Lake St. Jo
seph. Several persons were badly
cut and bruised, but no lives were
lost. The tenants living in the
houses had their clothing and
household effects blown away.
Telegraph and telephone wires are
down and the public road on Lake
St. Joseph front is covered with
fragments of houses, furniture,
clothing, cottou, corn and house
New Orleans, Oct. 29.-About
4:30o'clock this afternoon a cly
clone struck this city on the river
front just above Peniston street,
aud swept over a distance of about
a mile and a half, or thirty bloocks.
from Panison street to Robin
street, the track of the storm be
ing about fifteen hundred feet wide
from the river to Annunciation,
street. The first building damag
ed was the Independen, e Oil Mill,
situated at the head of Peniston
street. It was unroofed and build
ing and contents were damaged to
tho amount of $G,000. The con
veyors of the new elevator of the
Illinois Central Railroad were
slightly damaged, and John W.
Hitemayor and John J. Buck, em
ployed at the elevator, were lifted
from the ground, dashed against
tho elevator and the latter was
severely hurt. Hundreds of build
ings in the track of the storm
were damaged, mauy being par
tially unroofed and chimneys pios
trated, trees uprooted and fences
blown down. The storm-swept
section of the city is in darknese
to-night, owing to the prostration
of electric light wires, and details
of damage are difficult to obtain.
At a first a number of lives were
reported lo3t, but so far these re
ports have not been verified.
The property loss is estimated
at $100,000. The Sylot cotton
sheds, situated on Robin street,
near the river front used by the
Texas and Pacfic Railroad for
cotton storage, were damaged to
the extent of $10.000. A number of
other sheds were completely de
stroyed. George Barber, a switch
tender, was seriously injured, ari
arm and hip being broken, aud
Joseph Hennesy. laborer, was also
injured at the shedrf-all the oth
er laborers, about forty in num
ber, having just knocked off and
fortunately got of the sheds be
fore they collapsed.

What a change there wii! be
Fifty years from to-day !
But some of us will never see,
And others will be old and gray
Fifty years from to-day!
We who look so fresh and strong,
Fifty years from to-day
Will wish we had never done wrong,
And that we'd better learned to pray
Fifty years from to-day!
We who are rash and count no cost,
Fifty years from to-day
Will wake to rind we are almost lost,
That we've heavy (U>bt of sin to pay,
Fifty years from to-day !
The frosts of time will make us shiver,
Fifty years from to-day,
And we shall wish with many a quiver
That every month might be like May
Fifty years from to-day!
But if we have done our best
Fifty years from to-day,
Our Lord will give us rest, sweet rest,
And teach us better how to pray
Fifty years from to-day 1

MARRIAGE IX HIGH LIEE.
Rock Hill, S. C. Oct, 29.-A
marriage long to be remembered
in the social life of our little city
-that of charming Miss Lillian
Jones of Rock Hill to Dr. Francis
W. P. Butler of Edgefield-took
place last evening at 8 o'clock in
the Church of our Saviour. This
was perhaps the prettiest-certain
the most talked of-event of this
season of brilliant affairs. Long
before the appointed hour the lit
tle church was filled with the
friends of the bride and ber fami
ly-rilled to oversowing, for the
opened windows were crowded
from outside* with faces eager to
get a glimpse of the fair bride and
her court. Truly the looker on saw
a pleasing pight. The decoralions
were exquisite. Every available
nook and arch was wreathed in
green and chrv^anthemu ns and
the chancel was borden d with a
profusion of potted plants. (Ker
the steps of the altar hung the
daintiest of umbrella?, made of
some gausy white stuff ?nd gar
landed with greon and ro=<-s, limier
which the "twain in one" knelt for
the blessing. As a foundation f r
all this the church from entrance
to altar was carpeted in pure white-.
Before the first notes o', the march
from Lohengrin had died away,
Dr. Butler appeared at the vestry
door, and as Hie party came up the
aisle, ho WHS escorted into tho
chancel by his brother and b'st
man, M. C Hut 1er, Jr., who was at
tired in fui! regiment?is as Lieu
tenant of United Stales Cavalry.
Preceding the attendants came
the ushers-Messrs. Ira Dunlap,
Joe Gaston, J. Edward Reid and
John A. Black, all of this city.
Following them were:
Miss Marie Butler and Mr.
Iredell Jones, Jr.
Miss Annie Jones and Mr. T.
Miss Annie Lyles Roddey aud
Mr. Butler Hagood. r
Miss Isabel Robertson and Mr.
Wm. Butler, Jr.
Miss Aliue , Mobley and Mr.
Miss Arrah Belle Wilson and
Dr.'C. P. DeVore.
In Deciding the duestion

then considering the purchase of j
DOORS, SASH & BLINDS,

Through the kindness of Mr. H.
B. .Mayson I have recently been in
formed that there is a report cir
culated in this vicinity^that I did
not vote for H. H. Townes in the
primaries of this year. The report
goes as follows :
. J. H Carpenter tells Sam Mur
phey, Sam Murphy tells Ed. Car
penter, Ed. Carpenter tells Hez
Strom iu the presence of H. B.
Mayson, and H. B. Mayson tells
me. I have seen J. H. Carpenter
and Sam Murphey and they deny
saying that 1 did not vote for H.
In justice to myself and to men
whom I had pledged myself to vote
for H. H. Townes, I announce the
authorfcf and report a black-heart
ed wilful malicious liar; the stamp
of truth is not in his heart and
he is unworthy of the belief of any
honest man and I defy any man
to tell me I did not vote for H. H.
Townes. Also any man charging
me with saying that Hez Strom
did not vote for Mr. George E.
Dorn tells a lie. I defy any mau
to tell mo I said Hez Strom did
not vote for Mr. George E. Dorn,

liars and the devil is waiting for
