A Coming Crop.
The Spanish peanut is coming to the
front as a hay crop. It will produce
two tons to the acre on good land, will
sell for as much as Timothy, and is the
only bay crop that'can be grown in
the cotton belt upon which horses and
mules can be fed and kept fat without
grain. It can be produced far cheaper
than.corn. Corn isa very expensive
food for stock. Our old friend W. fl.
Stallworth, of Phoenix, thinks that
"even wheat is a cheaper crop to raise
fer horses and mules than corn, espe
cially as you can make wheat and corn
ooth on the same land the same year."
This same gentleman says that "the
great problem for the Southern farmer
to solve is, how to feed his stock more
cheaply, that- is to say without grow
ing so much .corn !" A horse will eat
his own head off tvery year in corn
and fodder. f

to pull up his potato vines and remove

meut-^An Unanswerable One
MR. EDITOR : I have read wi
interest the. l ng and evident
carefufiy-and thoughtfully writte
and doubtless would-be conviu
ing and conclusive communicatk
of Mr. J. M. Gaines, of Greenwo:
county-the Pretender and tl
Usurper-as recently published i
the ADVERTISER and Chronic!?
but I think the writer, being we
aware of the ridiculous absurdil
of his pretended right to hold h
seat-jn the Senate, has permitte
bis zeal to shield himself from ti
righteous condemnation of tl
outraged people of Edgeiield, I
over-reach itself in the apparel
confidence he seems to have as \
hi? .right to continue to hold tt
office of Senator from Edgefieh
whilst he frankly admits that h
has. since the 4th of June "becom

seat in the Senate or House c
Representatives, who at the tim
of his electiou, is not a duly qual

Now, how is it possihle for M.
Gaines, a gentleman of ackuow

J. M. Gaiues'i of Greenwood county
In one breath the Greenwood Pie
tender and Usurper says that he
(an alien) hag a right to .hold ai
Edgefield ' office four years-an(
tlien iu the next, admits that t<
do so -would not accord with hil
ideas of propriety.
Mr.-Gaines has considerable t(
say in reference to what he saic
and done during the last campaign
And now-s?ys that at that time h<
did not expect "Greenwood coiiutj
to be put into .operation as earl}
as it has been." Yes, and we knov
that both he and Mr. Yeldell as
sured the people that it woulc
take two years or longer for th<
coinplete'establishment of Gieen
wood county, and Mr. Gaines alsc
then said that as soon as Green,
wood was duly organized he woulc
hand in hii resignation. First de.
luding the. people (unwittingl)
perhaps) into the belief that, ii
would take two years to accom
plish what has been done in aboul
six months-and now, (although
he promised to resign when Green
wood county assumed countyhood,
the Pretender and Usurper de
clines to make good his promise
And, as an excuse, weak anc
flimsy though it is, for not doin^
what he kuew was right in thc
premises. Mr. Gaines tells us that
certain "prominent citizens oi
, what yet remains of Edgefield
county," opposed his resigning on
account of the probable expense
, aud anuoyance of a special elec
tion, etc. Now, with all due re
? spect for the views cf said "prom
inent citizens," we think that they
i have advised Mr. Gaines withou!
, due regard to Mr. G.'s true posi
tion. Because he has no right non
I -moral or legal-to hold the office
as Senator from Edgefield. And
all acts of his, if he is permittee
bp sit in the Senate, as Senatoi
from Edgefield, will be void anc
of none effect, and, if an issue it
made, will be so adjudged by the
courts, of the. State. Because Mr
- Gaines has "become a citizen ol
i Greenwood county"-is not i
. "qnalified elector" of Edgefield
' county-and is therefore, as tb<
, Constitution declaren, "not eliglbh
- to a scat in the Senate,"

fulfills every wish in relieving pain in
