Miss Madge Graydon, of Abbeville,
daughter of the Hon. Ellis Graydon,
and granddaughter of the late Dr. D.

Meeting Street. Before returning
home she will visit tbe family of her
uncle, A. S. Tompkins1 Esq.
A father, in consoling his daughter,
who bad lost her husband, said: "I
don't wonder you grieve for him, my

"I don't know as I can," replied the

The father went home comforted.

were interred at Gilgal church, by the
side of her father and mother.
Georgia farmers are considering the
advisability of planting Kaffir corn
We experimented with this grain sev
eral years ago and found that while
easy to cultivate and remarkably pro
lific in yield, it was unsatisfying and
distateful food to man and beast.
Many of the farmers of this county
gave Kaffir corn a trial, and all, we
believe, with one consent, abandoned
the cultivation of it.
Solicitor Thurmond made his first
appearance as State's prosecuting offi

February, and up to this writing he
has convicted every prisoner brought
before him, twelve in all. There are
three more in the Camden jail, and
having heard of Mr. Tburmond's prow
ess, they sent him word "not to shoot
-they would come down and plead
'guilty.'" The Camden Chronicle
says : "Hon. J. Wm. Thurmond appears
as solicitor at this court for bis first
time in Kershaw county, and right
well does he perform his duties. His
management of the cases which have
come up before him proves that the
people made no mistake in electing
him to that office. Since his coming
here Mr. Thurmond has made friends
among the members of the bar as well
?s the people."

King Henry TUX
The following ia said to be an
exact copy of an essay written by
one of our Edgefield school boys
on King Henry the eighth : "King
Henry VIII was the greatest wid
ower that ever lived," says the
boy. "He was born at Anno Domini
in tho year 1076. He had 510
wives besides children. The first
was beheaded and executed. The
second was revoked. She never
smiled again. But she said the
word 'Calais' would be found on
her heart after her death. The
greatest man in his reign was Lord
Sir Garret "Wolsey. He was sir
named the Boy Bachelor. He was
boin at the age of fifteen unmar
ried. Henry VIII was succeeded
on the throne by his great-grand
mother, the beautiful and accom
plished Mary, Queen of Scotts,
sometimes known as the Lady of
the Lake, or the Lay of the Last
Guano, Acid Phosphate, Kainit
and Cotton Seed Meal. ,

How They Do Over the River
Fifty Bushels of Corn to the
Acre, Etc.-Gus Glover
MR. EDITOR : I have wanted to
write ever since my arrival, bat
have had grippe for two weeks, and
am only just able f;o be np now.
1 am delighted, with my new'
homa. and I have fallen amongst
a people who work thirteeu months
in a year and are prosperous. I
am just six miles south of Au
gusta on what is known as. the
Milledgeville road. Th? land is
level, but not as strong naturally
as the land around Edgefield. It
is susceptible!, however, of the
highest improvement. Being loose
and active, by liberal application
of manure, it san in a short time
be brought up to fifty bushels of
corn and a bale of cotton per aore.
One thing I notice, and I believe if
the plan was adopted by the farm
ers of Edgefield would result ad
vantageously to them, ?nd in
crease the yield of crops 20 per
cent. Il is this: The farmers of
this section plow up their laud in
December just as deep as they can ;
the land is now being bedded and
manure put in for corn. .
I find very little guano used, but
Btable manure and peas in abund
ance. I have one ueighbor who
pays his hands $15 per month to
haul manure from Augusta, six.
miles, besides he pays 25 cents pip
load for pine straw, which be ex
changes, for bis manure, and he.
iiaitns that it pays him. The re
mit is the highest evidence that it
ioes. Last summer I drove by his
farm, and saw corn that good
judges said would make seventy
bushels per acre. Another thing
impresses me is that the farms are
?mall, fifty and one hundred acres
men, and owned and worked by
white people. What they call or
dinary land here sells for $25 or
$30 per acre, and runs up to $100.
The people enjoy most exce lent
Behool advantages, which are ran
nine months free. There is a
splendid one iu a quarter of a mile
Now, Mr. Editor, I want to say
just one word about the public
roads. I have often heard of Rich
mond's good/roads and they cer
tainly come up to reputation. They
are worked by the county chain
gang under supervision of a com
petent man who receives $90 per
month for his services. There are
no overseers as we have, 7.or do
the hands woik so many lays as
we do, but each male citizer is tax
ed for the purpose^-this isa spe
cial tax. They have crushed rocks
thrown up in the middle and Girt
placed over it, forming an o^-al,
after which a huge iron rollei ,io
run over it to smooth and pack ft.
Of course there are ditches ;n
either side. It would pay Sup v
viBor Talbert to come over and in
spect them. I honestl}- believe t' e
people save more money from we; I

costs them to have the roads worl

What Franklin Accomplished.
Lord Jeffery wrote of the
American inventor and philosop
her, "He never lost sight of com
mon sense." Philip G. Hubert,
Jr., in a sketch of Franklin in hu
recent book, "Inventors," says:
"Nothing in nature failed to in?
terest him," and a catalogue of
achievements, showing his activity
and resource, is conclusive proof
of the truth of both statements : !
Franklin inspired and establish
ed the Sunto, the pleasantest and
most useful American club of
which we have knowledge.
He founded the Philladelphia
Libiary, parent of a thousand
libraries; which marked the
beginning of an intellectual
movement of endless good to the

He created the post-office
system of America, and .was the
first champion of a reformed
He invented the Franklin
stove which economized fuel, and
he suggested valuable improve
ments in ventilation and the
building of chimneys.
He robbed thunder of its terrors
aud lightning of sono of its ^power
He founded the Ameircan
Philosophical Society, the first
organization in America of tho
friends of science.
He suggested the use of
mineral manures, iutrodnced the
basket willow, promoted the early
culture of silk, and pointed out
the advantages of white cloth
ing iu summer.
He measured the temperature
of tho Gulf Stream j and dis
covered that northeast storms
may begiu in the southwest.
He pointed out the advantages
of building ships in water-tight
compartments, taking the hint
from the Chinese, and first urged
the use of oil as a means of
quieting dangerous seas.
Besides these great achievements
accomplished largely as recrea
tion from ' his life-work as
economist and statesman, Ben
jamin Frauklin helped the whole
race of inventors by a remark
that has been of incalculable
value and comfort ,o theorists
and dreamers the world over.
