"The cures accomplished by Mr

MR. EDITOR: I merely wish, iu
a very few words, to endorse the
call in your last issue over the
signature of "Home Rule" in
reference to the resignation of cer
tain Greenwood gentlemen who are
persistently swinging on to Edge
field offices. "Home Rule" is right,
and how those Greenwood gentle
men, with a proper sause of pro
priety, can hesitate longer to va
cate their Edgefield offices is to me
an unsolved problem. Right and
justice to the people of Edgefield
demand thut those Greenwood gen
men with Edgefield offices in their
pockets should step down and out
with a double-quick movement.
We all want and believe in Home
Rule, and resident citizens of
Edgefield, and they alone, should
fill and control Edgefield offices of
houor and trust, and none others
should attempt or dare to usurp
the rights of the people of Edge
field. RIG"] T IS RIGHT.

Is Judge Simontoi nverted?
The Charleston < espoudeiit
of the Columbia Regis* says that
Judge Simonton is widenlly a
thorough convert to the claims of
the dispensary system as a moral
institution-or at least to the
moral features of the system taken
by themselves. In hip charge to
the jury yesterday in the Beckroge
case his Honor said:
"The great feature of the Dispen
sary law, the destruction of the sa
loons and the political influei.ces
of saloons, preventing drinking
liquor in places where liquor is
Bold, requiring the liquor
establishments to be kept open
during certa? 1 hours, the destruc
tion of the habit of treating and
the protection cast around minors
and habitu:.! drunkards, these
features will not be iujared or
proiecced by any verdict you may
render. No political question
enters this case at all*
'.Eat in addition to these great
features of the dispensary law,
and I want to say here that if they
were the questions involved, if
our verdict would settle or
unsettle those principles of the
dispensary law, there is DD court
in the State who would be more
prompt to declare that the
provisions to which I have refererd
you are not only lawful, but the
wisest exercise of the police
powers of this State."
Such a tribute to Ben Tillman's
system for regulating the liquor
traffic, from Judge Simonton, is
worthy of note.
Light Oil the Cash-Shannon' Duel.
We are told by Col* W. M.
Pickett, of Anson coautv, N. C.,
who is a lifelong friend and a
distant rotation by affinity of Col.
E. B. C. Cash, that he heard the
Colonel say that the sharpest sting
in his bosom relative to the
Shannon trouble was that he failed
to recoguize the salute that salute
that Col. Shannon gave him as he
came on the ground to settle the
grievance. Here is Col. Cash's pri
vate declaration to me on several
different occasions: "If I had only
seen Col. Shannon salute me as he
came on the grouud I would not
have fired a shot, but would have
advancd and said: Geutlomen I
am an expe;:t as a pistol sh3t,which
I know Col. Shannon is not, and
seeing from his salute that he
dosn't come on the ground with
venom iii his heart towards
me, I now propose a settlement of
the difficult}' and a handshake, as
I feel sure Col. Shannon would
bite the du6t if I shot.*'

In the Buzzard-Henderson case
the defense challenged the
indictment, but it had been so
carefully drawn that it stood the
test, the Judge ru)ed in favor of
the State without hearing any
argumentjfrom the Solicitor at all.
This indictment was drawn by
Hon. J. Wm. Thurmond without
any assistance or even a suggesion
from any one. In drawing
indictments where several perBons
are indicted together in such cases
as this was it requires a great deal
of skill, and had this indictment
been defective, and the Judge ruled
against the State the whole case
would have io have been
BL*ne over again which would
have cost the county .$300, $400.
or may be more than it costs as
it is. So y JU can see the importance
of having a Solicitor, like
Thurmond,who knows his business
Indictments are often quashed

Clemson is a heavy load to the
taxpayers of the State. We have
had something to say about Clem
son before. H>w instead of the
State granting a dii?ct appropria
tion for its maintainance, is giving
it all the privilege tax on fertili
zers. With Clemson, at least, there
is too much extravagance. We am
toid that when the legislature at
its last sitting called for an item
ized list of expenditures there was
actually an entry of $2 for pulling
a nigger's tooth-had to make
some showing of what became ol
it in order that the appropriation
might not be reduced. We really
believe that the college could be
run handsomely on half what it
gets, and if it can, why the tax
payers need the balance.-Ex.

Home folks in Washington.
Just before Congress assembled
this morning a report was
circulated at the Capitol to the |
effect that Senator Earle, of South
Carolina, had died at his home in
Greenville, from Bright's disease.
Senator Tillman, and Represen
tatives Latimer and McLaurin at
once telegraphed to Greenville and
received a denial of the rumor. It
appears that Senator Earle's
daughter, who was in Washington,
received a telegram, stating that
her father was very ill and request
ing her to ccme home at once.
Senator Earle bau made many
frieuds during his brief career in
the Senate, and Senators and
Representatives of every political
faith today expressed the deepest
sympathv for him in his present
illness. His courtly manner,' hie
ability as a lawyer and his elo
quence as a debator is fully recog
nized by his Senatorial associates,
and he is destined to occupy a i
prominent place in the Senate
should he recover. At a recent
caucus of Democratic Senators he
made a strong speech, in favor of
reorganizing the Senate committee,
and the steering committee has
determined to resign him to two
im poi tant committees, claims, and
poitoffices and postroads.-News

Cures When Others Fail-Disease Vanishes
at His Touch-A Marvelous Man.
The cures which are daily being per
formed by Prof. James Nichols, the
magnetic man, or whatever strange
sort of being he may be called, almost
stagger credulity. That he does im
part a wonderful current of vitality,
that he cures pains and heals diseases,
there is no longer room for doubt.
Hundreds testify to his almost mirac
ulous cures. Under his touch, the
lame walk, the deaf hear, the blind see,
disease vanishes ana the despondent
are filled with hope.
WHAT OTHERS SAY.

tarily given to Prof. Nichols, which
may be seen at his office, testifying to
all manner of cures, we find space for
VERTIGO AND PARALYSIS
"About three years ago, I had sev
eral severe attacks of vertigo or partial
paralysis, as termed by the attending
physician. After a confinement of sev
eral weeks to my bed, I at last gained
suiUcient strength to attend to my bus
iness, but was still troubled with a
swimming or dizziness of the head and
occasionally headache, particularly
when exposed to the hot sun. To be
relieved of this dizziness and occasion
al headache, I concluded aboJt a month
ago to try Dr. Nicholl magic treat
ment. I now take pleasure in saying
that after the first or second treatment
I have not had the semblance of a head
ache, and the dizzy sensation has en
tirely disappeared. Therefore, I cheer
fully recommend this doctor's treat
ment to suffering humanity for all dis
eases of debility, or when the nervous
system has been in the least impaired,
believing that magnetism is a power
ful agent when one possesses it, as
does this doctor, to build up and return
the patient to health without the use
