Death of Miss Janie Bussey.
Miss Janie Bussey died at the
home of her father, Rev. G. W.
Bussey, at Parksville, last Tuesday
afternoon, after an illness of
several weeks, aged about 20 years.
Miss Bussey had many frier ls in
McCormick, where she had often
visited, and the news of her death
was a great shock to the people
here. She was a young lady of
exemplary piety, and her parents
mayconso.e themselves in their
grief over her death hythe thought
that all is we;i with her in the
Great Beyond. Her remains were
laid to rest in the Parksville ceme
tery on Wednesday afternon.-;
A Bold Robbery.
On Saturday night last some
miscreant broke into the grocery
store of Mr. J. A. Timmerman, of
our town, and took therefrom suu
dry articles of value. The thief
or thieves first emptied in the mid
dle of the floor a large bag of oats,
and the bag was no doubt made
the receptacle for the plunder.
Mr. Timmerman misses several
bags of flour, a quantity of meat,
about $5 in cash and twenty or
more pounds of candy. Entrance
was made by breaking the glass in
one bf the front windows. It is
probable that more than one was
engaged in the robbery.
Since writing the above Mr. Tim
merman has captured the thieves.
Their names are George Ware and
John Baxter, both colored. They are
both in jail. Mr. Timmerman found
fiour, meat and tobacco in the posses
sion of Ware, in fact he confessed the
whole business and implicated Baxter.

to represent Edge-field, in the
State Senate than a citizen from
the county of Charleston has.

not vote in the county of Edge
field and they have no right to

We publish the follow extract
from a letter of Mr. W. T. Walton

office, but I will say this in reply
io your letter :
If my friends and the people
want to elect me to fill Mr
Yeldell's place I will do the best 1
can to fill the office, and if I do nc
good I will try to do no harm. Bul
I had much rather some other good
man had been solected from this
side" of the county. I have beer
asked by some of my friends be
fore to come before the people fo]
office. I appreciated their kine
interest but begged off. I now ap
predate the kindness of my friend!
and your kindness more than 1
will office if I am elected. So J
leave the whole matter with yoi
and others to do as you see bes
and I will yield to your wishes.

A NEW DEPARTURE.
A Sinking Fund for Edgefield
MR. EDITOR: The legislature of
1896 passed au act headed '-Au
act to regulate and control county
sinking funds created for the pur
pose of placing the finances of the
counties of this State upon a cash
basis," which begins thus:
"Whenever provision is made by
law for the levy and collection of
on annual tax to create a sinking
fund for the purpose of placing
the finances of any county of this
State upon a cash basis the sum
or sums so raised shall be kept by
the county treasurer upon a special
account, and shall be known or
designated as the County Sinking
Then follow the other sections
showing how the funds may be
loaned and when the levy and col
lection of a tax for sinking fund
shall cease, etc.
Upon inquiry of two of our pres
ent representatives and some oth
ers whether any subsequent act
had been passed empowering Edge
field county to levy and collect
for a sinking fund after the man
ner of the above general act, I
have not been informed positively
whether Edgefield county can es
tablish such a sinking fund or
not. The citizens of this county
should know this and be made fa
miliar with the general ajt and its
wise provisions to avoid interest
paying and get our county finan
ces upon a cash basis. If there is
not at present a law permitting
this county to create a sinking
fund it will certainly be a duty of
our representatives and senators
to urge its enactment io January
next, for I am convinced that four
fifths of our citizens when made
familiar with the provisions of the
general act wiil readily advocate a
levy for such a sinking fund to set
tle back indebtedness and to pre
vent speculators swindling honest
claimants and tax payers with dis
It is a fact that the county is in
debt and also behind in paying
current expenses. To pay this
debt and to meet current expenses
the county board of commission
ers will tax us some way. Their
present method of borrowing and
paying interest without publish
ing that they have borrowed to
meet certain claims to a limited
amount, is a costly method to the
taxpayers and operates to swin
dle claimants and keep the citi
zens generally ignorant of the true
state of affairs. The sinkiDg fund
method after the general act of
1896 makeB everything plain and
known, stops interests and dis
counts by giving assurance of pay
ment within a certain period to
claimants and will lessen taxes
that go to pay back debts and cur
rent expenses in cash.
I have been awaiting the report
of that grand jury committee that
I might make some calculations of
cost to honest claimants and to
taxpayers by the present method
of paying or the saving by the
new sinking fund method.
The appropriations to the vari
ous school districts of the county
this year amounted to over four
teen thousand dollars, which dis
counted at 7 per cent, yielded the
speculator one thousand dollars
that the teachers lost and which
the taxpayers have to pay on the
plea of education. Yet we are in
formed that the county treasury
holds an unappropriated school
fund to the amount of four thous
and dollars after giving Saluda
county her share. This is certainly
a happy condition of affairs foi
the bank holding this deposit of
the people's money with which tc
discount the poorly paid teachers
claims and possibly turning this
same money over four times s
year. A gracious condition wher
th6 county school board has the
authority to appropriate the taxef
collected as a school fund tc
school purposes, or borrow if yoi"
please of this contingent accumu
lation without interest. If this if
not to be done, so much the mon
is the sinking fundmethcd neeclec
for this board also, that thev anc
th? people may understand th<
It does seem that this accumu
lation whether intended or not ii
a started sinking fund that migh
be used to pay teachers claim
cash without any discount to th*
amount of Buch accumulation
But to say no more at presen
about the school appropriations
etc., used to illustrate the advan
tage8 of the proposed sinking furn
law, placing things on a cash basie
I will assert that taxpayers, teach
ers and county claimants can no
permit euch financial operation
to continue and at the same tim
do justice to themselves and rea
From what I have learned rele
five to increase of contracts bi
cause of discount payments an
the discounts other claimants hav
to pay if the olaims are paid ata
I may safely proclaim that or
mill of our taxes goes to the speci
lators, whose purpose is subserve
by keeping th* people ignorant of j
the county financiering.
Then I insist that we have a law
permittiug Kdgefiold conuty to es
tablish a sinking fund after the
manner of the general act of 1896.

Filia bottle or common glass with

an unhealthy condition of the kidneys.
When urine stains Unen it is positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre
quent desire to urinate or pain in the
back, is also convincing 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 Koot, 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
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordi
nary effect of Swamp Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine ycu
should have the best. Sold by drug
gists, price fifty cents and one dollar.
