Eveiy time John Carpenter comes to
Edgelield he pays for his paper. As a
consequence he never had the tooth
ache in his life, never had corns, it
never rains on his fodder before he
hauls it up, the minks never bother
his chickens, and the frost never kills
hi9 beans. What we_have-said_about
John Carpenter is also true, and for
the same reason, of Oscar Burnett, and,
in addition, Mr. Burnett uever fails to
get a good stand of cotton. This last
good fortune is due to the fact that he*
lives nearer to the ADVERTISER office
than Mr. Carpenter.

General Butlei's Appointment.
The appointment of ex-Senator
Butler to be a major general in the
volunteer army is the best military
appointment that the president
has made. General Butler ia by
nature a soldier; he was one of
the best sent by the Souih to the
late war and he is better fittod to
command a division than any liv
ing ex-Confederate general.
In war timeB men of M. C.
Burler's military genius are in
demand. It is the president, the
arni}'' and the country who are
lucky in the appointment of
M. C. Butler. His new honors
do not make him a greater soldier
than he was already conceded ' to
be by veteran?, North and South.

Terrific Hail Storm.
The most terrific hail storm ever
seen by our oldest people fell ia
ElbertouWednesday evening about
6 o'clock. MaDy of the stones
were as large as leraonr, and they
fell fast and furious for 40
minutes. Trees wore stripped of
their leaves and fruit, flower yards
and gardens and orchards were
ruined and hundreds of chickens
were killed. There was not a
piece of glass left in the skylight3
of Orr's photograph gallery, and
he was badly damaged. The
skylightB of the Gholston Inn's
sample rooms fared no better.
Long's conservatory was badly
damaged by the large stones, and
we don't believe there is a single
glass covered flower pit in the town.
Hard rain fell all the while and
the streets were literally flooded,
as the water came too fast to be
conveyed away throrgh the cul
verts. We are glad to learn that
it did not extend over an area
more that two miles Bquare, and in
some places was not so severe.
All vegetation is damaged badly
within the territory of the storm,
and nature will have to assert all
of her recuperative powers to

Senator Morgan, of Alabama, has
been twitted aud berated unmeri
f ully by a number of newspapers
and notably so by the News and
Courier for bis outspoken advocacy
of the Nicaragua canal project.
They have made faces at him and
called him names and held him
up as little short of crazy. And
yet what incalculable value that
canal would be to us in a naval
and military point of view if we
had built it some years ago. How
easily and quickly the Oregon
could have been transferred trom
the Pacific lo the Gulf. How
easily an expedition could.be seut
through it'from Now Orleans or
some other Gulf port to the relie!
of our Asiatic squadron under
Admiral Dewey. All these things
come home to us in timo of war,
and it is likely that we will profit
by the lesson when peace returns.
It shows, too, that Senator Morgan
haB more farseeing statesmanship,
not only about this buf some othor
questions as well, wrapped up in
his cranium than ali the little
scribblers combined who deride
in O?? Day.
The Atlanta Constitution says
that a "man in Carterville pur
chased the gallows on which a man
was hanged and built a hennery
of the lumber. He has never had
a chicken stolen from it, and it is
said that the colored brother won't
go within a block of it if he oan
possibly a-"oid doing so."
The acid are disinfectants; they
disinfect the mouth, is liable
to be filled with haoteria- they
disinfect the sy f tem, wnioh renders
it less liable to attacks of disease ;
but wo should eat fruit because
it tastes. Nature guides U3 by
our taste. If our system desires
acids, we wj]l have a desire to eat
that which is acid.
