WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13.
The Democratic national com
mittee is said to be considering
the advisability of holding the
Democratic national convention
two or three months earlier than
in former years.
Dreyfus, the French captain, was
re-convicted on last Saturday and
sentenced to banishment and im
prisonment for ten years. It is
said that he will be pardoned hy
the French Government.
Columbia has a home fire insu
rance company. It should be well
supported not only by the city of
Columbia but by the whole State
as well. Patronize home enter
prises and outside folk will have
faith to do so likewise.
When we said last week that it
was about settled that Talbert
Tillman and Youmans would be
candidates for the United States
Senate, we spoke without the
slightest intima* ion from either of
the parties named but only gave
the current rumors. The people
have about settled the matter
among themselves that they want
and must have a triangular race,
three contestants in 1900 for the
Senate, as was the case when Mc
Laurin was elected and when Earle
was elected. There are a good
many people in South Carolina
who are tiled of Reformer aDd
Conservative and want to vote for
a good sound democrat without
regard to past affiliations, while
there are others who will stiok
to the old rack, fodder or no fodder.
Since writing the above we see
the name of Duncan mentioned
for The U. S. Senate andalso an
other galoot, whose name has es
caped us. So it may be that the
people want this time a quin
quangular race instead of a trian
gle. What we started out to say
and to emphasize was that, so far
as we know no one has authority
to announce for Edgefield county
*.hat Talbert is or is nota candi
dato for the United States Senate,
or that Youmans is-that Tillman
is, goes without saying.
A Possible Money Stringency.
New York, Sept. 9.-Frank A.
Venderlip, assistant secretary of
the treasury, was here today and
conferred informally with some of
the representatives of the leading
banking interests. He declared
that his visit waB without official
significance, nevertheless admit
ting that the department recogniz
ed the possibility of a money
stringency ac this centre, and said
that it will do all in its power to
assist in case of need.

Cotton Seed for Pigs.
Speaking of fattening pigs the
other day, a Yorkville gentleman
remarked that the cheapest feed
he ever had anything to do with
was cotton seed. The cotton seed
should be cooked, of course. He
went on to say that one year, when
other kinds of feed was scarce, he
put four small pigs in a pen and
fed them nothing but cooked cotton
seed. He had them up about eight
months altogether, and when he
slaughtered them they netted from
200 to 225 pounds each. To feed
raw cotton seed to pigs is generally
undertood to be, dangerous.
The Misses Marsh, of Trenton,
S. C., entertained Thursday eve

Quite a number of the young soci

late hour, delicious refreshments
were served and a delightful eve

Just Like a Woman.
"There are tens of thousands of
people in England," says the
Spectator, "who are intensely in
terested in the question wheter St.
Peter was ever in Rome, or whether
St. Paul was really married or
whether Onesimus was really
freed or not, or how we can be
certain as to the line of popes :
questions that really have little or
no connection with the true content
of religion, but which fringe the
borders of the field of religious
life.' A minister in this country was
telling his congregarion how God
knew which one's of his children
sunshine suited and which one's
needed the shades of afliction.
"You plant rosee in the sunshine
but fuchsias do best in a shady
nook," was his concrete expression.
He was taken aback after the ser
mon by the gratitude .expressed
by a lady : I never knew before

Through The Trestle.
Columlbia, S. C., Sept. 9.-The
engine and several cars of a train
loaded with granite went through
the trestle of tb? Columbia, New
berry and Laurens road over Broad
river, near this city this afternoon. J
Engineer Weathersby, Fireman
Rennick and two other men are
known to have been killed. There
may be others buried under the
wreck. A car is supposed to have
jumped tho track and the jar
caused the structure to give way.
There is no other way of accoun
ting for the accident, aa the trestle
has just b^en overhauled by the
bridge builders of the Atlantic
Coast Liue, and was yesterday
turned over to President Childs
with the report that it was in per
fect . condition, an inspection
showing the timbers to be new.
Chief Engineer Ellis of the road,
said tonight that no trestling could
stand the shaking this was sub
jected to, and the fault lay with no j
The cars fell over forty feet, j
Two of the men killed were young
negroes who were stealing a ride j
across the river.
While the trestle is being rebuilt,

Laurens road will use the tracks of

ABright Future For The South.
There is a marked difference in
the South of today from that of
thirty years ago. We have our
schools, colleges and numerous
large manufacturing enterprises
and are in a state of prosperity,
and our fair Southland is destined
to be the land of thrift and pro
sperity. Many towns are forming
Village Improvement Associations,
for improving the streets and
painting and whitewashing the old
anisightly buildings. Now this is
aplicable to your case. If your]
buildings are not painted, write to
the Southern Paint Company of
Pinebluff, N. C., a new concern re
cently establish. They are soling
a most excellent paint at moderate
rates to people in the South.

What kind of bees are best to

we can get as you will find suffi
ciently endorsed by all who have
made a lifetime study of Apiacul
ture. I dont think a man can keep
anything on hie farm of the same
cast that will pay a better profit
on the investment. Say he makes
up his mind to keep ten stands on
bis place at a cost of $3.50 per
colony-there is thirty-five dollars
invested ; at twenty-five pounds per
colony he get? 250 pounds of hon
ey worth ten cents per pound. He
gets ten swarms worth one dollar
per swarm, there is even one hun
dred per cent on tbs investment
and the mother hives on hand as
good as ever.
In the above estimates I dont
think fcany thing overestimated.
But, I do know of better crops
than this, I have taken as high as
one hundred pounds from a single
colony in one year, and I have
saved four good swarms from one
hive in the same year. The honey
bee has been neglected worse than
any other industry in South Car o
South Carolina is doing less to
improve on that branch than any
thing I know of in our State. Not
because she has no pasture, not
because she haB no bees, but be
cause she does not go at it in ear
nest. I speak as one who has had
some experience, perhaps more
than any other one man in the
State. I have seen in the Augusta
Herald two pioces on bees. In
one piece he suggests plans for put
ting on honey boxes, they were
very good but he signs no name
I hope he will come again I would
be glad to exchange opinions as to
how to manage bees.
As to putting on boxes all is
guess work, just as the poor far
mer is use to, he see8 the moon
just right to plant a certain field of
corn, away he goes and plants his
corn, long com?9 one of Gods plans
to show him that he is God and
beside him there is none else, and
where is his field of corn. So it is
in bee culture, thero is no exact
plan J to fall upon, but to sow in
the morning and withhold not thy
hand in the evening.
If this does not go to the vaste
basket I may come again.
