A Sure Pop.
The first grown cotton boll in
this community comes from a stalk
in the field of James Griffin, col
ored, who is one of Col. Folk's nu
merous tenants. There will be
two boll8on this stalk in all, when
fully matured. There would have
been morebut the miserable bumble
bees8 uckedtho pollen from all the
blooms except two. The methods
ol the bumble bee are peculiar. He
lies on his back underneath the
cotton plant, sticks his feet and
logs up to the bloom, pulls it down
to his mouth and sucks until he
has got if all. The only sure pre
vents e of such destruction is, to
dig a hole under tho cotton plant,
so that when the bee gets over on
his back ready for operations he
will find his legs too shovt to reach
the coveted bloom. We bave uever
seen this method recommended in
the Cultivator or the American
Agriculturist, or any o;hor agri
cultural paper, but it ;s a ''sure
pop'' all the same.
Hold Up Their Hands.
Our local board of health, con

mendable efforts ?ii the matters of
which they hnve especial charge.
They have sent out notices to va
rious partios to have their prem
ises cleaned up as a cautionary
measure-and preventive of sick
ness. No one who has his own
welfare or that of his neighbor at
heart can take umbrage at this.
Last year and year before there
was a good deal of fever iu Edge
field, and th-Te are indication?
that we may have lo pass through
the "deep waters" again this year,

health deserves to be encouraged
and commended. We hope they
will not stop simply by ti notifica

it that their instructions are car

is worth a carload of nasty medi

We call the especial attention
of our readers to the advertise
ment of Miss Eliza M. Minis in

New York where, at the celebra

perfected herself in'her profession,
ilfea^Lj^Palt- pa itifcjftgpfa^?f '
and oil, in its various branches.
Her references, from the bighte?t,
sources, speak in splendid terms
of her skill, accuracy, delicacy of
touch, and wonderful portrayal on
canvass of the human form and
features divine. But her work
speaks for itself ; and this work
can be found in many homes iu
Edgefield and adjoining counties.
To many it is a sweet though
melancholy pleasure to gaze on
the features of deparled loved
ones, and to many such Miss Mims
has proved a blessing and a be
nison. Last, but not least, her
prices are so very reasonable
as to suit all purses.
The Church at Ked Hill.
Our work here at Red Hill is
moving along nicely. We have
organized a ladies', mission socie
ty since Cnristmas. They have
about fifteen members. They have
already made some contributions
to our mission boards. We have
also organized a weekly prayer
meeting; some of our younger
members are taking an active part
in this work. We hop9 soon to
organize a Young People's Union.
Our Sunday school has been well
attended and is doing a grand
work. On last Saturday our school
observed Children's Day. The

MR. EDITOR: AS you well know
I am no newspaper scribler, but
there are times whe-n every mau
possessing thc least scintilla of
patriotism or any regard for the
public weal, should condemn in
some way, with no uncertain
sound, such infamous and un
pardonable and unrighteous swing

Messrs. Gaines and Yeldell of
Greenwood county. I did'nt vote
for Yeldell, and am gle.d I didn't.

who knows that he has no right to
live in Greenwood county and at

MESSAGE FROM THE DEAD.
B. Dorn at Greenwood.-She
Wrote Pathetic Letters
Found After her
The death of Mrs. R. B. Dorn
at Greenwood last week was a
peculiarly sad oue. She had gone
to Greenwood on a visit to her
sister, Mrs. Bracknell, about a
week before, to spend several days,
She had been .in bad health for
some time and it was hoped that
the change would benefit her. She
grew worst- soon after her arrival
there and died about a week after.
She leaves a husband and four
little motherless girli. It seems
that, she had anticipated her death
for some time, as since her death
two letters were found in her trunk
which were written last September,
ono addressed to ber husband and
chidreu, and the other to her
parents. At the request of many
friends the family have consented
for these letters to be published,
and they are given below. These
letters are filled with womanly
love and for pathetic expostulation
and tender solicitude we have
never seen them equalled.
Very few will be able to read
them without shedding tears, and
we believe that all whe do read
them will be benefited.
TO HER LOVEU ONE8.
The letters are given below:

"My " Darling Husband and
Precious Little Girls : Day by day
I grpw weaker and at times I think
I cannot stay much longer with
my loved ones. I feel that I cannot
leave you all without releiving my
mind of what I think about so
much when I get real sick end am
not uot able to to talk ; and when
I get better my heart fails me and
I cannot speak.
"My children, God only knows
how I grieve about them ; my four
sweet little girls. Barney, I ask
you to raise them up to serve the
Lord. Tell them sometimes about
their mamma ; how I loved them.
Don't let them forget me when I
am gone. No one would be to my
little girls or to you like I would
be. The Lord kuows best and if it
His will to take me from tboee I
love so dearly, I am willing to
go. I don't dread going at all, for
the Lord will be with me.
Lucy, manma wants you to be
a good girl ; pray to the Lord to
make you so. Set a good example
before your little , sisters; take
care of them, and you get in trouble
take it to your Heavenly Father
and He will hear you. Care for mj
motherles darlings, Mattie, Emmie
and Lillie, when you grow older
think of what your mamma wanti
you to be-precious jewels, brighi
for His crov.'u. Be good to eact
other, don't quarrel, and help Lucj
all you can. So muoh will be ex
pected of her, as she is the oldest
My first, sweet girl, words fail V

children aud husband, my iif<
has been short but sweet. I'v
never known trouble until now
My dear husband, if you marry
again, get somebody that is capable
of raising our girls, and who is
worthy of the love I know you will
give her-the love I have known
and appreciated. You will be
mine again in death. I will ciaim
you then. Another may be with
you the rest of your li?>, but in
death nothing can part us. I will
be waiting and watching for you.
I know that you will not forget
your Lillie-think of me often,
darling-your wife that loves you
as no other can. H possible, love
your childre more when I am gone ;
watch over them and see that they
always have plenty to eat and what
they need to wear. God will bless
you and them. I know He will.
Raise them to trust the Lord with
their whole heart and they will
never want. Those who have known
and loved me will love my children,
and will help you with them.
They will do by mine as they
would like some one to do by
theirs. I trust God for all those
things and someone will help you
"Oh, my darlings little girls, I
leave you all at the world's mercy,
and in the hands of God. Do the
best you can without me ; it cannot
be long. Be ready to meet your
mamma when the summons of
Goodbye my first and last love.
Live to meet me-take good care
of your children and yourself.
Your true loving wife,
"My Loved Ma and Pa : I can
not say to you what I' feel, but
.want to leave these few w?*da for
you to read when I am gone.
Your love and kindness to me has
been more than I have deserved.
I cannot thank you enough for
what you have always done for
me. I love you more than I can
express. If I have lived I could
never have repaid you. My darling
husband and little ones have been
so good ta me ; have been so
thoughtful of me. I ask you, pa
and ma, give them all the comfort
and help, you can while you both
live. 1 ask. you not to wear your
lives away grieving for me You
have helped to save me this long
and now I feel that you have doue
all you can for me. Live for your
other children and my darling
liltlo ones. If you can't hav your
sweet Lillie with you in your old
days, I leave you my sweet baby ;
she will be your Lillie as long as
you want her, or uutil tho Lord
"Take her and let her fill my
place in your heart. We will all
have to die ; and you know the
Lord's will must be done, not ours.
I want my children kept together
if possible, How you all will man
age when I am gone is not for me
to know. One happy thought-the
Lord will provide for you all.
"Tell Barney's sisters, Johnnie
and mother to love and remember
my children. Ma, you and pa must
live nearer to God. Live prepared
to meet me, for I.will die, hoping
and trus tingthat the Lord, will
give me restTYoulTuow it almost"
breaks my heart, the thougt of
lea- ing you all. My dear Tom,
Bndd, Dotha and Charlie live as
you would like to die. You know
not when the summons will come.
Let us all be together once more.
"We have been happy here, all
of us, but the chain must be bro
ken, you know, some time, and I
must be the missing link. There
will, I trust, be a beckoning hand
for all my loved ones. How I
loved you. All love my precious
husband and little ones. Ma, tell
my children to always honor and
obey you and pa, and when you
ever need help to do all they can
for you. If they would please me,
they would obey you, and all kind

Why take Johnson's
Chill & Fever Tonic?
Because it cures the
most stubborn vase
of Fever in ONE DAY.
Fill a bottle or common glass with
urine and let it stand for twenty-four
hours; a sediment settling indicates
an unhealthy condition ol the kidneys.
When urine stains J inen it is positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre
quent desire to urinate or pain in the
back, is also con vi no ing proof that the
kidneys and bladder are on: of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge
so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain in
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine and
sca'ding pain in passing it, or bad
j effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times during] the night tc
urinate. The mild and the extraordi
nary effeot of Swamp Root is soon
I realized. It stands the highest for itt
wonderful cures of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. Sold by drug
gists, price fifty cents and one dollar

WHY IS IT?
Some find work where others And rest,
And so the weary world goes on.
I sometimes wonder which is best,
The answer comes when life is gone.
Some eyes sleep when some eyes wake,
And so the dreary night hours go.
Some hearts beat where some hearts
I often wonder why 'tis so.
Some will faint where some will fight;
Some love the tent and some the field.
I often wonder who are right
The ones who strive or those who
Some hands fold where other hands
Are lifted bravely in the strife,
And so through ages and through lands
Move on the two extremes of life.
Some feet halt where some feet tread
In tireless march a thorny way;
Some struggle on where some have fled ;
Some seek when others shun the fray.
Some swords rust where others clash ;
Some fall back where some move on ;
Some flags furl where others flash
Until thc battle bas been won.
Some sleep on while others keep
The vigils of the true and brave,
They will not rest till roses creep
Around their names above a grave.
