It is rumored with reference to our
March term of court that some legal
complications have arisen, in the mat
ter of the cutting off of Greenwood
county, that will prevent Edgefield's

complications exist in the fact that
some of the jurors drawn to ser ye at
Edgefieid live in the territory cut off
ia G -enwood county, and the act cre
ating Greenwood county going into
effect immediately upon its passage
makes these jurors foreign citizens, >o
to speak, not qualified to pass upon
the personal or property rights of our
citizens. We've been cut up "right

two purchases of real estate while

the so.emu vows of matrimony. So
they returned Snnday night bring

marriage. Prof. Cogburn is a
teacher in the Classical Institute
originally from Edgefield County.
He is tall and of stately bearing.
His deportment while in our midst

Jim Miner Speaks his Mind
MR. EDITOR: I was in Green
wood county the other day and in
my journeyings I had to leave the
big road-the reason why was that
the candidates were so numerous
that the highways and byways
were filled with 'em and I had to
take the woods. I make it a rule
to go off somewhere else when a
candidate strikes me as I have
no confidence in the breed of 'em.
They will make you believe they
are wise enough to turn mud into
sugar, but after the election they
take the sugar and leave us stuck
in the same old mud as usual.
When I am at a campaign meet
ing and a candidate gets up and
begins to tell what "he's er gwine
to do" I get up too and go off in
the woods and seratch his name
off my ticket. The man who talks
a great deal is obliged to lie now
and then, for there ain't truth
enough in this world to keep a
mau always at it.
Speaking of Greenwood county,
.1 hope our folks will stay out of
that county until after their elec
tion; the truth is Greenwood is
"pizen bigity" aboul her new con
dition. I hope she will give Mc
Cormick a part of her territory
and call it North County to sorter
even up things. Individually I
have been looking to the wool hat
boys a long time for something on
my own account, but nothing is
in sight yet. I have but one gallus
and don't expect to get the other
one unless my friend S. P. Mathis
gets to be a Trial Justice and will
give me one to vote for him. I am
afraid there will be 'ell in the
camps before long.
Yours til deth,
P. S.-The "petrified man" you
are to have in the show at Edge
field on next Monday may be a
good thing-but show me a petri
fied candidate; and then take my
money purse, take all my goods
and chattels, all my worldly pos
sessions and let me go hence.
Semphronicus Writes From Sa
In these fast days, it is all one can
do to keep up with the furious ca
reer of eveuts, indeed it would tax
the energies of a trained newspa
per man to keep abreast of the
times. Everything seems to be in
a whirl-affairs States, national,
and local are topsyturvey. Mc
Kinley is fixing up a cabinet of
men of his stripe-safe, cool, emo
tionless, without one spark of en
thusiapm to keep affairs from stag
nating. Our own legislature has
been wasting money talking about
everything from.high" r?dccfitioT? I

Dispensary or anything as a moral
reformer. Mr. Kibler of Newber
ry has also come in for his share
of the fun. Indeed the papers
have been holding a regular love
feast at his expense. Corporation
lawyers (on a small scale) who
have squirmed their way into our
council halls, have been hooting
over his carcass at a lively rate
and country editors have sent up
their howls from hill top, glen,
and dale. All the spirits and
goblins of "wood and fell" are
invoked upon his dear old .bead.
He has been held up as one eager
for honors and panting for renown.
As a matter of fact a more plain,
prosaic man would be hard to find.
The writer pleasantly remembers
him asan old preceptor in the days
agone. And too W3 fail to st-e
where the criminality of his labor
bill lay. The railroads work un
der the supervision of commis
sioners; are the factory managers
more sinless than they? We see
all the more reason for protecting
factory labor than rail road labor;
because rail roads generally em
ploy only able bodied men, while
factories employ oftentimes help
less children. But ;hen the man
agement of the labor commission
might fall into the hands of some
contemptible politician and do
more harm than good. We were
glad to see a tendency to cut down
salaries and a disposition to vote
less blindly on money appropria
ted for higher education. That we
are topheavy on the educational
question, every thinking man ad
mits. And if these appropria
tions for educating a few hundred
boys and girls, while thousands
more are growing up in ignorance,
are not cut down, the people will
rise up and send the whole shoot
ing match on a pleasure trip up
salt creek. Popular upheavals nev
er do things by halves. And won't
"Squandering State Money on rich
men's sons and daughters" be a
fruitful topic for the demagogue?

Away over in Newberry, Editoi
Anil's host of scriblers have se
up a wail for a big free dinner giv

Lime as a Manure.
On a nine-acre field that was so
poor that corn did not pay for
harvesting, my father sowed 1,000
lbs of guano with oats and clover
seed. A fair crop of oats was se
cured and a moderate stand of
clover. The next year when the
clover was fully in head, half a
dozen young stock were turned in
and the following spring ?lio clo
ver was plowed under with 100
bu. of lime, planted corn and had
a nice crop ; stalks not very heavy
but well eared. The next year
oats and clover were sown, giving
a fine crop of oats and a good staud
of clover. The stock was turned
on the same as before, and the
clover was plowed undei with 125
bu. of lime and covered again.
This time we had a heavy crop of
both stalks and corn. Finding
that we had struck a good thing,
we followed it up till that field,
though naturally pooror than the
rest of the farm, produced equal
to the best land. We adopted the
plan of planting two fields of
corn, two of oats, audone of wheat.
As we were not allowed to sell any
hay, straw or fodder, we kept
sheep, COWA and young stock to
consume it, which made us a laige
quantity of manure that \sas
spread on the one field for corn
and on the field for wheat. Ve
raised plenty of hogs and poultry
and though prices were low we
made money, and when I Mt
home the farm produced fuly
three times as much as when ve
took possession, and I do iot
think that $300 had been laid cut
for fertilizers except for lime.
Evidently this soil needed line,,
and so do many other soils to-dry.
The matter can easily be tesledhy

known this to be done, and the
result was that the lime helped to
eet free the stores of other plant
food in the soil until the supply
was BO reduced that inly poor
crops could be got, even by libera,
applications of lime. Plowing un
der policy, adds only nitrogen?
and vegetable matter (humus) to
the soil : potaah and phosphoric
acid are also needed. This mat
ter of keeping up soil fertility.ar
