WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 8.
MRS. JOHN B. DAVIS.
Departed this life ou Sunday
afternoon last at 5 o'clock Mrs. J.
B. Df 7'.s. For several weeks she had
been very ill, but the sad and final
farewell was not expected so soon.
Mrs. Davis has been a resident of
Edgefie'd for about twelve years,
and had learned to feel that it was
her home. She lived a quiet and
unobtrusive life, and was devoted
to her home and children. She
leaves her husband and six chil
dren, the eldest, A. T. Davis of
Greenville, Misses Sudie and Til
lie, and John Davis Jr., and two
little sons Floyd and Henry, all
old enough to realize what a loss
they have sustained. Her re
mains were carried on Monday to
Good Hope Baptist cburob, where
she has been for years a member.
The sad messenger of death brings
sorrow to ma Dy homes, but never
sadder than when it is to bear
away the loved spirit of a devoted
But the short afflictions of the
present are not to be compared to
the glory that shall be revealed
hereafter, and the furnace of sor
sow is a stepping stone to the
higher life. May all learn the
lesson which each cross shall
"Oh these parting scenes Will ead,
Some sweet day by andhy
We shall gather friend with friend^
Some sweet day by and by,
And the star that fading: here,
Left our hearts and homes so drear,
We shall see more bright and clear
Some sweet day by and by."

An Object Lesson in Corn.
W. P. Smith, of Paris Mountain
.township, 9 brought to town on
Thursday an object leeson in corn.
On the 15th of last April, Mr.
Smith planted corn, one field with
seed of local raising and another
with seed of Western forn. He
plucked aev?r^T"iiTifB-?r?d brought"
them to to^n. The corn grown
/rom Western seed is well matured
and ready for use. The corn of
local growth is about three weeks
behind the other. But this is not
the only superiority of the West
ern corn over the other. One ear
of the Western corn has on it 1748
grains, while an ear of the local
corn has 848 grains, just about
half. Mr. Smith says he will make
about 35 or 40 bushels to the acre
of the Western corn. The grains
>re larger and more perfectly form
ed than those of che Southern
corn, and taken alcogether it seems
to be a better article. There is
no reason in the world why the
South should not raise corn equal
ly as well as the West.-Green

saying much. McLaurin is a bet

Aug. 30,1897. i
MR. WM. H. OUZTS :
Dear Bill:-In the Sunday's
News and Courier of the 22nd
inst., Judge Thomas discribes the
action of my Company of Nelson's
Battalion in Mie battle of Drew
ry's Bluff,,on the 16th of May
1864. In this narrative he men
tions your cousin John Henry
Ouzts, color bearer of the Battal
ion, as having been killed whilst
bearing the colors. Seeing thia
narrative reminded me of a duty
I ought to have performed long
since, aud which I now undertake
with mingled feelings of pleasure
and pain. That duty is to bear
testimony under my own signa- j
ture for the benefit of his family, j
to your cousin's high character as a :
soldier, I am persuaded to do this, j
not only from my high appr?cia- .
tion of him, hut because circum
stances seem to forbid justice be- ,
ing done his memory. Those cir- \
cumstancoB are : ?
First, that as my compacy was
raised from several counties, it j
does not appear in the Adjutant- (
General's office as an Edgefield
2nd, I suppose for the above
reason it does not appear in Chap
man's History of Edgefield.
3rd, I do not soe his name men
tioned in your family history as
given by Chapman.
I blame nobody for this as it
tseems natural, and as a matter of
fact, I have suffered a like fate, I
think, from some of the same
causes. Of couree you will see
that I mean and refer to my com
pany H, of the 7th Battalion
(Nelson's) as Chapman does re
cord the roll of Company G, 7th
Regiment. Well, Bill, this must
not be 1 John was too good a boy.
and too good a soldier to be thus
neglected. In camps and in field
there was not a better soldier in
the command. In drill he was
admirable ; at inspection he was
neat and always had his arms
and accor"rements in excell?nfe
order; in camp duties he was
prompt and energetic, in quarters
be wad moral, amiable and cheer
ful, always polite, modest and
obedient to orders ; and in battle
as cool and brave as the bravest.
Merit alone made him color bear
er of as fine a command as our
State gave the Confederacy.
He was true to his truBt and
died flaunting theso colors in the
faces of the foe. He died young,
but with the highest airaB of a
soldier attained-an honorable re
cord and a glorious death.
I feel that from me this tribute
is due and I have no other motive
than to render justice to a deserv
ing soldier, from whom accident
seems to withhold it. Show this
letter to his people as it- may be
pleasing to them.
Very truly yours,
J. H. BROOKS.

THE SOUTH FOR SETTLERS.
It Offers Many Advantages, and
Tide Has Turned 'Ibis Way.
N. F. Thompson, secretary of
the Johnstown, Pa., board of trade,
writes to the New York Times as
follows : . .
"The matter of farming,
colonization of tho surplus labor
and population of the east on the
fertile lands of the south, where
lands are relatively cheaper aod
more productive than in most of
the other states of that section, is
just now attracting very wide
attention. This is due in part to
the editorials that have appeared
in the Philadelphia Times and
the Press of that city on the subject.
They are being widely noticed
throughout the south, and natually
the metropolitan press is looked
to for some show of interest in it.
"The fact is dawning upon the
minds of thousands through this
?ection that the weBt no longer
offers attractions for settlers.
Many from the west are now seek
ing homes in the south, and they
are impressed with the belief that
it would have been better for them
From the outset to have gone direct
to the south. Be that as it may,
:he tide is now unquestionably
toward the south, and will
mateiialize for that section just
tn proportion as it will be properly
received there. 1
"The greatest problem with-:
(vhich the east has not to deal is
the disposition to be made of its
surplus labor and population.
Under the most favored conditions
it is recognized that there is not
smploymeut for all, but that many,
if they remain here, must suffer
want and privations untold from
thal cause. Why not, then, make
this move to the south-one that
will promise relief? It can easily
be done, aud every impulse of
humanity, patriotism, and state
craft demands that it at least be
"From a long anji, intimate
acquaintance with all -.portions of
the south, and without a single
dollar of interest at stake, I will
take pleasure in giving information
to any who may apply therefor
on this matter."

A Pointer for Ben TilHl^
.Ben Tillraan can stop his sky
larking now and get down to busi
ne(38. If ho wants to hold, h is own
and maintain his grip upon the
popular confidence and vote of
this State, he wlil have to display
both the executive ability and the
disposition to promote the real in
terests of the people and of the
taxpayers, instead of playing upon
their factions and class prejudices.
The politicians have got a knife up
the sleeve for him, aod once they
get him on the run there is no tell
ing where it will end. Let him
stop "monkeying" with the whis
key traffic ; retain what is good
of the dispensary idea-the fea
tures of it that were engrafted on
the State Constitution ; do away
with the State Belling placesj im
pose high license and stringent
conditions on the "original pack
age" stores, thus securing all the
moral benefits possible, and at the
same time saving to the State the
much-needed revenue from the
whiskey business which is now go
ing into the pockets of the alien
and the stranger.
The federal courts have got his
political "machine" by the throat
and will surely strangle it sooner
or later. They should have made
a clean job of it by chopping off
its head with the constitutional
axe long ago. It would have been
a more merciful and humane mode
of execution not only to the con
demned system, but to the specta
tors as well. In short, let Senator
Tillman f.>r once rise to the plane
of true patriotism and statesman
ship and he may perpetuate
through merit the hold he has
hitherto obtained on the people by
shrewd politics.-Charleston Critic

ONE OF TWO WAYS
The bladder was created for one pur
po?e, 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. Sothewomo, 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; Io 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
Swamp Root, the great kidney
and bladder remedy, is soon real
ized. If you need a medicine ycu
should have the best. At druggists,
price fifty cents and one dollar.
