CAMP WALLACE, SONS OF 'VETE
Comrades: Ever since I have
been in command of this Division
of the United Sons of Confederate
Veterans, I have been especially
desirous that your camp should re
vive its organization and join the
United Sons of Confederate Vete
rans. There is no county in the
State which sent to the war a larg
er number of gallant soldiers than
did Edgefield. Among the most
distinguished names of those who
rose to high position in the Con
federate army are those of the sons
of Edgefield; and no less great,
no less gallant, and no less patri
otic were the thousands of those of
her sons who in the rankp of the
army endured daDger and suffer
ing; and death itself, in de
fense of the principles for which
they went to war. I cannot be
lieve that the sons of these men
are lacking in the spirit which
made theil sires so illustrious. I
will not believe that the descen
dants of these men are indifferent
to the memories of fame and glory
which are their inheritance. I
know too well the pride of race
and of name which has ever char
acterized the brave men of old
Edgefield. The purposes and ob
jects of the organization known as
the United Jons of Confederate
Veterans cannot fail to commend
it to your favorable consideration.
Wherefore, I earnestly invoke you
tore-organize }rour Camp, named
in honor of so distinguished a son
The annual meeting of th>. oouth
Carolina Division U. S. C. V., will
be held in Charleston on April

joyous occanon. So I beg you to
unite yourselves with our Division
and send delegates to that meet
I feel that I will not appeal in
vain to the patriotic pride and the
filial duty of the young men of old

How Fitz Hugh Lee Left West
Gen. J M. Wright.^ gave an
account of how Gen. Eitz Hugh
Lee left West Point t^join the
Confederate Army in 1861. Lee
at that time was an instructor in
the West Point Military Academy
and Wright was a cadet. The
account was published some years
ago and is as follows';
I was on pcit in the hall of one
division of.thft barracks. I had
completed my inspection of rooms
and received the assurance of "all
right" from the occupants of each.
It was getting along toward tattoo
and I took the last surreptitious
whiff at my pipe and stuck it inside
my coat, and discontinued the
unauthorized conversation I was
having with a couple of fellows
through a half open door, and
made all the necessary preparations
for receiving and reporting to the
officer in charge, who, I had been
advised by grapevine, dispatch a
few mintos before, had started at
the other end of the barracks. He
gave a great rattle of his sword
before opening the hall door, for
fear I would not know he was com
ing. I reported in the usual way,
but he did not turn away at once
aB waB usual. I had often saluted
this officer, but had never spoken
to him. He had giv'en^ me) many
an order, but he probably never
heard my voice. He was an officer
and I a cadet, and he knew me
only by sight and name. But a
great event was upon him that
broke down the .rigid barrier
between the officer and the cadet
soldier. I stood at wondering
attention, but he advanced and
took my hand and said, as he had
said something like to other cadets
he met that last evening of his,
"Good-bye, my boy, God bless
you." And so Fitzhugh Lee went
out from West Point before the
war into the great, stirring events
of the war itself.
Independence or Death.
New York, March 17.-T.
Estrada Palma, head of the Cuban
junta, issued a proclamation to
the people of the United States
today, in which he stated that the
Cubans would not accept autono
my. "Independence or death,"
was still their motto.
The proclamation says;
"I cannot believe that the
American people would ever lend
itself to the most treacherous and
bloodstained monarchy of history
for the purpose of tryiDg to make
Cuba accept autonomy. Should
such prove to be the case however
I declare, in the name of the Cuban
people in arms ; that force alone
can compel onr submission."_
THEY NEVER LEARN.
Cotton Farmers Aagain Planting
for a Big Crop.
"It is one of the most astonishing
things in the world that, despite
the ruinously low price of cotton,
the planters of our state are de
voting a much bigger acreage to
that crop than they did last "year,"
said Mr. C. P. Lott, of North
Carolina, at the Riggs House.
" their experince last year
would seem to an outsider to make
them forever disgusted with plant
ing a single acre, for at 5 cents a
pound, the ruling price, the fermer
was bound to quit loser. The only
theory by which the policy |of en
larged production, after a dis
astrous year, can be explained, is
that the individual planter thinks j
every other cotton raiser will cur-1
tail hie acreage j on that assump
tion each individual fermer
reasons that if everyhody else is
going to produce less, the supply
wil] be short, and therefore prices
will advance. If prices go up the
man who has most to sell is ahead
of the game. Many individuals
holding this view constitute the
mass of planters, and it is there
fore very evident how, under these
conditions, there will be more of
[thefleecy staple grown in 1898
than in the preceeding year.
The season for planting this
important crop is at hand. Never
before was it more important to
devote a liberal area to this supply
crop. Never bofore was it BO
important to thoroughly prepare
and fertilize this area.
If the land is well prepared
.before planting, the crop may be
cultivated very cheaply. There
are.several mistakes commonly
made in the treatment of the ?com
plant that should be avoided.
The first and most common is
insufficient preparation before
planting. Crops are frequently
reduced one-half in yield by
imperfect and too shallow prepara
tion of the soil, A second mistake
is in planting the corn too thickly
on up lands.-Southern Farmer.

ONE OF TWO WATS.
The bladder wa^reated for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, and as 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.
E. CHIEF CAUSE.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of bladder
troubles. So the womb, 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, hy 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 21 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 you
should have the best. At druggists,
price fifty cents and one dollar.

Issues all Forms of Policies
at Lowest Possible Rates
' Consistent with Safety.
AND without making special medtion of each of its many popu
lar plans of insurance, we desire to invite the careful examina
tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROV IDEN T'S
TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the tbe needs of the insuring public.
When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ma.it which he can make at the end of twenty years. Experience and
s.a istics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
lc ger than the twenty-year perio'\
._Men take on large linea of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en
suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and beingjeducated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activity. It covers the time when their families and business in
terests require'^the greatest amount of projection.
A man's requirements are no; the sane at 60 years that they are
at 40 yea s. Pis f? ly has g o *. up, hrs br s - nfs conditions have
changed, or the nec?f ' y for inf .i a ice ha1? d'sr.pp3 .red.
In view of tvese i's ?;s, The Provident Sav; ags issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty yea s, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time. The pre nians on tt:B policy are less than one-half the
premiums charged for a tv mty-payment life. If a man wants insur
ance for prot% 'ion only, this policy will snpply his wants admirably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insu:.ance company for a
