It is announced by the friends
of Senator Irby that he will soon
enter into the practice of law at
Laurens. He will turn over his
farm to his son and brother and
will devote all his time to the
profession for which he originally
fitted himself. It is also announc
ed in connection with this event
that the senator does not propose
to pay " any attention to politics
but to devote his whole time to the
practice of the law.
Senator Tellr has introduced
and had passed through the Uni
ted States Senate the following
Mr. Teller's resolution provides:
"That all bonds of the United
States issued or authorised to be
issued under the said acts of con
gress herein bofore recited are pay
able, principal and interest, at the
option of the United States, in
silver dollars of the coinage ol
the United States, containing
4121-2 grains each of standard
silver, and that to restore to its
coinage such silver coins as a le
gal tender in payment of said
bonds, principal and interest, is
not in violation of the public faith
nor in derogation of the interests
of the public creditors."
CORN STAT/KS TO THE
There are two factories in the
United States,that buy corn stalks
at $4 a ton for the purpose of man
ufacturing Cellulose. One of these
factories is at Owensboro Kentucky
Cellulose is the pith of the corn
stalk ; its uses are varied and
wonderful. War vessels are lined
with it, and whenever a vessel so
lined is punctured with a shot, the
contact of the water with the cel
lulose causes that to swell, closing
the aperture aud preventing the
water from entering between the
ship's inner and outer walls.
Beside, the railroads have
found it to be far superior to cot
ton waste for packing journals, as
it requires less oil and obviates bot
boxes. As a covering for steam
pipes it is the best known sub
stance. For making paper it is
found superior to wood pulp, and
from it kodak films, frescoes, and
all papier mache articles can be
An acre of good corn will give
two to four tons of stalks, so we
may be happy yet on corn stalks.
A BILL OF ABOMINATIONS.
There is pending before the
Senate of this State "a bill entitled
a bill to provide for the adjust
ment of the bonded indebtedness
of Pickens Township in Edgefield
County and to declare, fix and es
tablish the amount of such in
debtedness upon the bonds and
coupons issued in aid of the Au
gusta, Edgefield and Newberry
Railroad Company, and to provide
for the payment of and funding
the same at the maturity of said
This bill is too long lo publish
here, but ii, is of vital importance
to the real estate owners of Pick
ens Tovnship and should be
thoroughly discussed and under
stood before it be allowed to pass
and become a law; to that end and
for that purpose we have been re
quested to call a meeting of the
citizens of Pickens Tuwnship for
Monday next the 7th February.
Let every taxpayer be present.
A Word to Farmers.
Mr. Shepperson says: "Unless
prices advance materially 'by
January 15 there will, of necessity,
be a very large reduction in the
acreage of the next cotton crop.
As soon as such an intended
curtailment of acreage is perfectly
evident, the spinners will
undoubtedly buy so freelyas to
speedily absorb the 675,000 bales
of indicated surplus and to ad
vance prices to a much higher
plane?. In the meantime, whether
prices advance or not between
now and the time for making pre
parations for the new crop, the
experience of this fall should
make it perfectly clear to southern
farmers that they phould next
year give less acreage to cotton
and more to food and forage crops."
Therefore, there is inouey to be
made this very winter by the very
resolution to reform. Good
intentions will bring two dividends
in 1898 if ?rrnly held.

CAPT. BUNCH REPLIES
To Historian Chapman, and In
cidentally Gives Some Very En
tertaining- Ancient History as
to Capt. Joshua Hammond, a
DEAR ADVERTISER: With your
permission I'll have a short talk
with Comrade John A. Chapman,
the Edgefield Historian.
In the ADVERTISER of 19th inst.,
Mr. Chapman, in commenting on
what I had to say in the ADVER
TISER of Dec. 22ud last, in regard
to Co. B, 6th S. C. Cavalry, a. pub
lished in his History of Edgefield,
staits out thus: "Chapman, the
writer of the History of Edgefield,
did not make or invent any of the
srmy rolls that are printed in that
book, etc." Well, Bro. Chapman,
do you really think I wanted or
intended to blame or quarrel with
you for the inaccuracies of that
roll? I had no idea whatever that
you created it, and why you should
blame me for trying to right it 1
can't exactly understand. Whilst
Mr. Chapman disclaims "the mak
ing or inv* ntiug of any of the
army rolls," he shortly thereafter
? tells Capt. Bunch "for his edifica
. tion" that "Chapman, the writer
of the History of Edgefield, was a
! member of Co. D 19th S. C. V., T.
P. Shaw, colonel, and Manigault,
brigadier,-" etc., tells of the errors
and mistakes in his company roll,
which he corrected and printed in
his book. Now was it right for
Comrade Chapman to correct his
company roll and other errors? It
certainly wrnt. Thon why oKo*d.<A
he accuse me of seeking a quarrel
with him for .correcting tb.6 roll
; and other mistakes of-my com
pany? Again Comrado Chapman
! says, "If Capt. J. J. Bunch wants
to do a great service to the State
and to his old comrades, let him
take time and carefully prepare a
full, complete and correct roll of
his company and send it to Col. J.
P. Thomas, "etc
For the edification of Bro. Chap
man, I will state that some eight
or ten years ago I procured of
Walker, Evans & Cogswell, of
Charleston, a book gotten up for
the purpose of roll and record of
Co. B, 6th S. C. Cavalry, This
book, I guess, contained 150 pages.
It has in it the names of all the
men that belonged lo the company
after its ranks were reduced by
military order from 140 to SO rank
and file. The company in making
this reduction gave up many good
men with whom the writer regret
ted very much to part. Their
names were not put in this roll
book for the reason that they
would appear on the rolls of the
companies to which they wrere
transferred. Hoping to satisfy
friend Chapman, I will state that
in this roll book there are but few
pages containing more than one
name, so there is space for a short
biography of each individual mem
ber. A few years back I sent this
book to Comrade U. R. Brooks at
Columbia, who was a gallant mem
ber of the company, to put in ii
what he thought proper and then
deposit in the Archives of the
State. Seeing Gol. Thomas's notice
of missing rolls of various com
panies, among them that of Co. B,
6th Cavalry, I wrote lo him to ap
ply to Col. U. R. Brooks for a roll
of our company. His secretary in-I
f>rmed methat they had gotten
the roll from Comrade Brooks.
Now, Mr. Chapman, I have no
disposition to find fault or criti
cise your History of Edgefield.
Sjme portions of the grand old
district you- gleaned very closely,
a.ud other portions were neglected.
I looked in vain in your history
for the name of Capt. Joshua
Hammond, a soldier of the Revo
lution. His name deserves to be
placed along with his kinsmen,
Col. LeRoy Hammond and Col.
.Samuel Hammond. Capt. Ham
mond was captured by the enemy
during the war and held a prisoner
in Augusta. He was a man ol
wonderful agility, and his captors
had him to amuse them in leap
ing, jumping and other pranks,
and probably on that account til
lowed him moro privileges than
they would otherwise have done.
So one day ho vaulted over their
stockade, which was near where
the Episcopal church now stands,
and was soon swimming across Sa
vannah river and again free.
Capt. Hammond spent his last
days at the home of Mr. Charles
Hammond, and the writer met
him there several times. He was
a man of small stature., of the
strictest integrity, modest in de
portment and retiring in manners.
He died, I think, between 1S50
and 1S55, was buried among his
kindred at a place known as Mt.
Airy, near Savannah river, a short
distance above old Cam bel town.
The writer of this sketch had the
melancholy satisfaction of help
ing to bury him. He tea* one
hundred and five years old.
Friend Chapman advises all to
buy a copy of his history. Wei!
I will frankly tell him that my
dollars are mighty scarce, and on
that account. I have todo without
many things that I need more
With my best wisnes, I am

ONE OF TWO WAYS.
Tho bladder was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, and as such it is not liable to
any form of disease except by ene of
two ways. The lirst way is from im
perfect action ol' the kidneys. The
second way is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is tlie chief cawse of bladder
Troubles. So the weino, like t he blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liabli
to weakness or dir-ease, except ir. rare
oases, lt is situated luck ol' and very
close to the. bladder, therefore an j
pain, "disease or inconvenience muni
tested in ike kidneys, back, blridderor
usii.ary passage is often, hy mi:?ta?<i
attribut jd to female weakness or
womb trotible of seine sort. The error
is easily made and may he as easily
avoided. Po lind ont correctly, set
your urine aside for 2-1 hour; j.
sediment or settling indicates ki?i?'j
or bladder trouble. Thc mild and vue

Issues all Forms of Policies
at Lowest Possible Bates
Consistent with Safety
THE substantial and steady growth of tho PROVIDENT SAV
INGS LIFE during the past fifteen years, demonstrates tbat
its forms of protection have been appr?ci?t erl by the public.
The Society has been the pioneer in cr sating th'- pians of modern
old-line lifo assurance. It maintains that no one plan of assurance
will meet the requirements of all men ; therefore, every for.m of policy
?vbich it ?P"-U?S was prepared to supply the needs oi* .some special class
of assurers. All it?! plans are peculiarly Provident Savings, and are
of exceptional merit.
Thc PROVIDENT has, from tbeoutset, been a strong
advocate of assurance for th1 purpose of protection,
and has eliminated, as far as possible, from its poli
cies all speculatioe features, providing reliable assurance
for the lowest premiums p ?esible. The financial diffi
culties of tho ?ia?t few years have caused business
men to question the wisdom of paying unnecessarily
high premiums; or a conditional deposit for an un
The aol of securing a policy of I i to assurance is the
performance of a dut)' I-'rou a business standpoint
lifo assurance is mor.' essential than fire assurance,
because prop Tty may burn, but man must die.
The policies of the PROVIDENT SAVINGS are
better, clearer in phraseology, and freeigfrom condi
tions and technicalities, than those issued by any
Persons desiring Life Insurance would do well to
consult me beforo seeking a policy elsewhere, as I
know the Provident t< be a thoroughly reliable old
line company, and is8U?#aa good if not a better Policy,
and at more satisfactory rates, than any other com
pany in the laud.
