The lovers of nature gaze with
delight upon (he forest scenes
during autumn. The multicolored
leaves upon the gum, maple, oak,
hickory, elm, and dog-wood, with
the deep green pines as a back
ground, make a huge bouquet that
is far more pleasing to the eye
thar? are those arranged by human
hands. Go out in the woodland
and feast your eyes for a few
hours upon the varicolored pano
rama that is there spread before
you. It really does one good to get
in this way "near fo nature's

Yes, Ibe great need of South
Carolina is not so much law and

Never before since Augusta has
been a cotton .market has a larger
number of bales of cotton been
stored in the. warehouses of that
city. The stock of 6pot cotton
now in Augusta numbers about
70,000 bales, most of .which was
shipped.with the. instructions to
hold till the price advances to ten
cents. Jt is but reasonable to in
fer that the owners of this great
quantity of the fleecy staple are
in easy circumstances, financially
epeaking, or it would have passed
from the hands of the producers
as soon as it was made ready for
the market. Despile the croakings
of some pessimists the times are

All aboard for Augusts
day morning next I During next
week our sister city across the
Savannah will be in holiday attir*-,
having everything in readiness to
receive end entertain her country
cousins. The annual fall festival
will be on and no stone has been
left unturned by the business men
of Augusta to make the Carnival
. of 1904 eclipse those of all former
years. When Edgefield people
board the cars for Augusta they
can feel and know that they are
going amoDg their friends-many
of whom have gone to that fair
city from our own county-and
not among strangers. A few days
of fun, frolic and merry-making
are relished by the young, middle
aged and old. Set your heart
upon swelling the gala week crowd
that will be in Augusta.
The sensational trial of McCue,
the ex-mayor of Charlottesville,
Va., for killing his wife, ended in
a verdict of murder in the first
degree. The result was no sur
prise to those who have followed
the trial closely in the daily" pa
pers. It is said that the jury, on
entering the jury room, was led
in prayer by one of tho jurors.
This is probably without precedent
but why should not those who
hold the destiny of a fellow-being
in their hands seek guidance of
Him whose all-searching eye dis
cerns the motives of the hearts
of men as well as sees the deeds
cf their hands ? Hasten the day
when South Carolina juries will

Peruvian guano-the kind that
our forefathers used and of which
we n^w hear the older people speak
much-is being largely imported.
Several cargoes have been received
at Charleston, and doubtless a
limited quantity (tho price being
too high" to permit of its general
UBe) will find its way into the in
terior. A vessel with 7,000 tons
of this high grade fertilizer on
board cast aucbor in the Charles
ton harbor last week after a voy
age, of 10,000 miles, which was
made in fifty-five days. Some o'
the Edgefield county farmers are
now making tt\o-balee-to-lhe-acro

with this Term of this Court his
office as Solicitor. We thank him
for the many acts of kindness and
helpfulness that he has shown the
many grand juries that have assem
bled in the court room during the
past eight years. And commend
him for the zeal, ability and fear
les8ness,which have always charac
terized his official career, and re
gret that he has deemed it proper
to retire from the office of Solicitor
of this circuit.
We appreciate the attention and
courtesies shown us by His Honor
