Although it is several months
before a single cotton peed will be
planted for the new crop, several
North Carolina mills are already
running only half time because of
the scarcity and high price cf
cotton. "Every dog has bis day",
and truly this is the "cottontots"
. Senator Tillman, despite the
efforts of the Republicans to side
track him, ha j never lost sight of
that malodorous Crum which is
such a precious morsel in Roose

the sword of Damocles, still hangs
over his head.

may result from this agitstion, yet
it, to some extent, will increase
the existing sentiment that con
demns mob violence.
Volumes are being said and
written in commendation of the
manner in which Hon. L. J. Wil
liams conducted the affairs of the
dispensary. The following is ?rom
the Columbia Record :
''No man has done more than
Mr. Williams to make the dispen
sary a success, and The Record
is*sorry that his valuable services
were JK lon?tir to be had, but he
leaves the institution in good
h?uds and the weight of his in
fluence will still be exerted in be
half of the dispensary. Mr. Wil
liams deserves the highest consi
deration of his fellow citizens for
his services, and we believe that
hie will receive it at the hands of
the voters of the second congres
sional district, in which he will
aspire to a seat in congress. In
that larger field of usefulness he
will carry the same business capa
city and the same energy, and he
will be in a position to do more
for the state than ever."

v TY'S GREATEST NEED.
^Congress has just appropriated
$300,000. to supplement the rural
free delivery appropriation. Mil
lions of dollars have been paid out
in every section of the country for
this purpose, and the immediate
vicinity of Edgefield and the
western portion of the county
have not received a dollar of it.
Along with the advantages of
having rural mails delivered free
i i tb^wroi having more money put
in circulation through the well
paid carriers. The reason the
western portion ??of Edgefield coun
ty does not eb aie in this, is because
of its sparsely settled condition.
Gp north, west, or southwest of
Edgefield for a distance of fifteen
qr twenty miles and, on an. aver
age, a white resident cannot be
found for every mile travelled. It
would cost as much to deliver the
mails to these few as it would to
deliver it to ten times the number,
consequently routes are being es
tablished in the deneely populated
sections first. Besides benefiting
the country schools and reclaim
ing the practically abandoued
lands, thrifty and energetic immi
grants locating in the sparsely
s?tlled regions would enable these
sections, which stand m^st in need
of. thom;to haye rural free delivery
r?jtttes. Oh, for thousands, yea,
tens of thousands,of white settlers
for our county. " (
