Since the blind tigers have
been put out of business in
Columbia the "social clubs"
are on deck, dispensing li-J

The northern people now
have the negro question to
solve and while we of the
South do not laugh at their
calamities it is just a bit in

ful it is to the Yanks.
A full pint of freshly roast
ed peanuts eaten just before
retiring is said to superinduce
sleep, being a certain cure
for insomnia. Such a reme

may cure insomnia but would
cause acute appendicitis or
something akin to it.
Who would have thought
it, a tidal wave of prohibition is
sweeping over Texas. Pro
hibition has been carried in
130 counties and in 59 others
the sale of liquor has been re
stricted to large towns. Gov
ernor Lanham is an out-and
-out prohibitionist and is aid
ing in the movement.
The shades of Harriet
Beecher Stowe are greatly
disturbed. Booker Washing
ton, than whom, in the esti
mation of the north, "the
father of his country" was not
greater, has been hissed and
howled down while addressing
?egro assemblage in Boston
irt of New England,

turing "tour through
northwest and judg
ing from the reports of his
speeches he must have car
ried a brand new pitchfork

social and political equality
of the two races in the south.
The supreme court and the
circuit judges, sitting en bane,
have decided that railroads
cannot require a passenger
who failed to purchase a tick
et, to pay twenty-five cents in
excess of the regular fare, as
has been the custom in the
past. All that a conductor
can collect under the law is
three cents per mile.
The encampments of the
state militia that are being
held this summer are reviv
ing or creating a military
spirit that is needed af this
juncture. Every town or
densely populated community
-should have a military com
pany. Preparing for war in
time of peace often prevents
war. Race riots will never
occur where an armed body
of men can be mobilized on
~~short notice. May Edgefield
yet be imbued with this mili
tary spirit and revive the de
funct Edgefield Rifles.
The people wax warm
with good roads enthusiasm in
mid-winter when the freezes
and hub-deep mud make road
building well nigh inipossi
ble. NOW is the time to
TALK and DO road work
ing. Better results can be
had from one day's work in
August than from a whole
week in January. The traces
of last winter's holes and
ruts can be seen and FELT
as one travels over the roads
of our county. These can be
easily filled now but if allow
ed to remain till the rains,
freezes and heavy hauling set
in ?t will then be too late.
That a stitch in time saves
nine is truer of road repairing
than anything else. Those in
authority should use every
means at their command, as
doubtless they will do, to cov
er as many miles of the roads
as it is possible to do before
the rainy season begins.
KHAKI AND MUSLIN.
T?irty-Second Annual .Picnic of
the Hussars-A Ne Plus Ultra.
With buoyant spirits aud happy
in the anticipation of attend
ing for the first time the
world renowned Lauham Spring
picnic, we set out on Thursday
morning last with another one of
Edgefield's dead game sports, hav
ing this historic spot-where tho
Hussars have won 32 consecu
tive social conquests-as our des
tination. All went swimmingly
till we began to climb the bumpy,
rutty, rocky, ' rooty, gullied and
horny hills qf|Horu's.Criek. TheBe
highways, byways, or whatever you
call them-let us not dignify them
with the name of roads-proved to
be too much for a frail vehicle of
the rubber tire pattern. A deep
gully, a sudden twist, a loud rattle
told the tale-a broken buggy.
Out on the ground we leaped, and
being a time when necessity failed
to be the mother of invention, we
trudged along for a mile amid alter
nating sand, rocks and gullies in
quest of a vehicle-just any old
thing. After becoming dust be
grimed, perspiration besmeared
and footsore, ready to fall by the
wayside, along came two good Sa
maritans, Messrs. M. P. Wells aud
John R. Tompkins, who took UB
under the shadow of their wings
and agaiu all went swimmingly.
Supervisor Self is a big man but
the ''goblins will git him" if he
does not. have a rock piling and
gully filling up and down the
mountains of Horn's Creek before
At last, after a journey ot ten
miles, so called, we were, although
a little the ?vorse for wear, on the
spot. Aud a beautiful, rhougu se
questered, spot it is. As we ap
proached, gazing admiringly upou
the panoramic view of this much
talked-of rendezvous, a natural
amphitheatre, sweet strains of
I music and sounds of revelry by
I day reached our ears. The crowd
-usiig the word with much em
phasis-had gathered from two
states. The "sajd-lappers" of
Caroliua and the "crackers" of
Georgia were there, all in picuic
attire-the, breeziest their ward
robe afforded-with a go-easy, go
lucky, just-anytbing-for-fuu air
prevaihug. The crowds that an
nually assemble at Lanham
Spring are unique in that they
are more dignified than are crowds
that gather on other similar oc
casions. The young people arc
gay but never frivolous and the
older ones enter heartily into the
spirit of the occasion with becom
We had often heard of the hos
pitality and the splendid manuer
in which the Hussars. :rue to the
ttaditions of their fathers and
grand fathers, conduct these an
uual functions but the half had
never been told. One has to be
an attendant, a guest of the com
pany, to really form an adequate
idea; of the charming spirit and
AT?oon as one sets root upon the
grounds lie,feels_.that he ia among
fri??ds-whb welcome his coming
into their midst. This alone,
without the many pleasures inci
dent to such an occasion, would
make the hours of the day speed
The Hussars, in prepariug the
great feast that was spread upon
the long tables, either over esti
mated the crowd that would be in
attendance or thought those pres
ent would have large appetites and
still larger capacities, for there
was more of the feast remaining
after all had been fed than re
mained after the feeding of the
multitude upon the loaves and
fishes. Not only had the fatted
calves been slain but sheep and
swine had been slaughtered in
great numbers and prepared to
suit the king's taste. Those who
attend the Lanham Spring picnics
always oxpect and are never disap
pointed in getting a royal dinner.
The music, which was so en
chanting and inspiring even to
the elderly, was furnished by a
band of six pieces from Augueta.
The old as well as the new dances
were engaged in so that all who I
desired to do so could participate.
The dancers were happy in love's
embrac j and with light hearts and
lighter feet tripped gracefully
over the marble-like floor. The
pavilion, which is very comforta
ble and substantially constructed,
was a little crowded at times but
3ome of the young people econo
mized space by dancing in con- I
spicuously close proximity. Thus '
ill W9nt well and the occasion
rvas pronounced the most pleasant
me that has ever been held.
Of Capt. N.G. Evans and his faith
ful committemen, who put self in
;he back ground and worked like
Trojans to enhance the pleasure of
:heir guests, too much praia* can
not be said. One does not longer
yonder that the fame of Lauham
Spring has gone out to the four
somers of the earth after seeing
vhat manner of men are back of
t. Three cheers to Capt. Evans _
ind his gallant mer ' May their
sanner float triump ly to the
)reexe so long as M: , shall roll (
lis ceaseless course . \
