EDGEFIELD, S. C., Aug. 13,1S97.
At a meeting of the Abner Per
rin Camp, U. C. V., held to-day the
following resolutions were sub
mitted by Capt. W. H. Brunson,
W. D. Ramey and John E. Colgan,
a committee appointed from the
survivors of the 14th S. C. Reg't,
McGowan's Brigade, and unani
mously adopted :
Whureas. This Camp has heard
with sorrow and regret of the
death of that brave and gallant
soldier, distinguished and honored
statesman, able and upright jurist

career at his home in Abbeville,

Resolved, That in the death of
Gen. McGowan the State has lost
one of her brightest and ablest sons
who has left behind him a record
as a soldier made brilliant by his
bravery and heroism on many
hard fought fields, a statesmau
and jurist unspotted and without
a flaw or blemish, to whom all true
Carolinans can point with pride,
and the younger generation, sons
of Confederate veterans, can well
emulate the example left them by
this great and good man, and the
soldier of two wars, warm-heart
ed, teLder and true. He was first
in war, first in peace and first in
the hearts of his solders, whose in
terest and welfare he always look
ed after; whether on the march,
on the field or in the bivouac he
was with them. He cared for them
as a father did his children, and
his soldiers loved and cherished
him. He never failed to enquire
after and personally interest him
self and to see that his "boys"
were comfortable, and even the
humblest private in the ranks of
his brigade never escaped his
watchful eye. He led them in
battle and his noble form could
always be seen in the thickest ol
the fight with hat in hand waving
above his head, on his favorite
charger "Trooper," galloping in
front cheering his boys on to vic
But he has gone-gone to meet
bis soldiers and comrades
were waiting to welcome the
loved commander in the

preaches from the heart and

May his streugth and life be
spared for many years, that our

zealously, may be edified and thus
have a great, good and sacred liv

How He Won Her.
"You caunot," shriek ed Alge mon
Fitz Altamont, "pull the wool
over my eyes. I see but too plainly
that you have already resolved to
reject me !"
The worn a n to whom he arl dressed
these impassioned words ga ?ed at
him with cold, cruel eyes. She
reclioed upoD the Bands, the waves
breaking at her feet, but breaking
far enough away for those dainty
extremities to proclude the
possibili'y of the sea spray injur
ing her bathing costume.
Algernon Fitz Altamont waied
for ht-r answer, but answer came
there DOUR. Still he sat waiting,
waiting with hope iu his heart and
saud in his shoes.
But tbero was sand in the moral
make-up of Algernon Fitz
Altamont as well as ID his low cut
russets.^ And he did not propose
to give up so easily. Indeed, he
proposed to win. Therefore, while
he repressed himself, he pressed
her for a reply. Seeing she took
kindly to it he pressed her some
more and still again. At last,
when his a m was tired, she spoke,
but in a light, bantering straiu
that betokt. ned the flimsy flippancy
of her Dature.
"I may not, Mr. Fitz Altamont,
be able, as you observed half an
hour ago, to pull the wool over you
eyes ; but perhaps I might succeed
j in pulling the wool over your hand.
Have you auy idea of what a
mitteD is made of?"
A ghastly pallor overspread the
features of Algernon Fitz Alta
mont. "Ah!" he caied, io
despairing accents. "I see what
you are driving at. You meau to
iofer that u mitteD is 'uit' goods?"
Cold, cruel, oaioulatiug coquette
though she was, the inimit? wit of
Algernon Fitz Altamont so pleased
her maiden fancy that wheo he
pressed her again, as he subse
quently did, for Algernon was a
stayer from Stayers vii le, she
promi8"il to bs his forever and fl
day. Which means until Sept. If

rh? y Thoroughly Understand the Tender
Cara of Children.
It sometimes happens that one sees a
young American mother so utterly unfit
for the training of children and for the
duties of motherhood that one cannot
but wonder why it pleased Providence
ever to give her the care of little ones.
This happens sometimes in the case of
really estimable women, and I have
heard a young mother say sadly that she
never quite knew what to do with baby,
it was such a queer little thing, and she
was half afraid to touch it Other young
things in the shape of puppies, kittens,
or even colts, she knew all about and
was quite at home with, but her own
child remained a sort of curious and un
canny little being to her till his baby
days were over and he began to share
in his mother's hobbies in a boyish sort
Now, in Japan a mother like this is
an impossibility. She is not interested
in politics or in social reforms, neither
is she bent on being a social success, nor
devoted to any scientific philanthropic
work, as are so many of her western sis
ters. She is par excellence a mother,
and one who cannot be rivaled in any
other country. No children are so well
and carefully tended as hers, and she is
patient and gentle with them, never
threatening them, if they are unrulj,
with corporal punishment, nor raising
her voice and scolding them in the un
pleasant way one so often hears in other
countries. The Japanese mother is a
born kindergacrtneriu and enters into
the lives of her little ones just as easily
as the western kindergarten teacher who
has undergone a long period of study
and framing. To her the duties, of
motherhood come naturally, for among
her nation women who will make good
mothers are chosen as wives, and thus
in the course-of nature the quality of
motherliness is intensified as time goes
on, and the race of mothers becomes
Nowhere is motherhood as respected
as in Japan, and nowhere does the
mother re?oive moro attention from both
her husband and her children. She ls
regarded as the maker of the race, and
her maternal duties are considered to be
exceedingly honorable and to entitle her
to the utmost consideration aud affec

ONE OF TWO WAYS.
The bladder was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, andas such it is not liable to
any form of disease except by one of
two ways. The first way is from im
perfect action of the kidneys. The
second way is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of bladder
troubles. So the womo, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liable
to weakness or disease, except in rare
cases. It is situated back of and very
close to the .bladder, therefore any
pain, disease or inconvenience mani
fested in the kidneys, back, bladder or
usinary passage is often, by mistake,
attributed to female weakness or
womb trouble of some sort. The error
is easily made and may be as easily
avoided. To find out correctly, set
your urine aside for 24 hour; a
sediment or settling indicates kidney
or bladder trouble.. The mild and the
extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
