Senator B. E. Tillman has been
invited to address the Cotton
Growers' Association of Greenville
on July the 4th, and the public is
OQ tip-toe, oxpecting him to make
some statement aneut the dispen
sary situation in the state.
If the members of the Presby

churches in Edgefiold county will
do their full duty as professing
Christians, in les* than sixty dayB
the dispensary will be closed and
not a drop of liquor will be sold

We trust that the mass meeting
to be held in the court house on
Monday next will be a large and

all sections being represented. In
tbe multitude of counsellors there
is wisdom as well as safety. If a

The Anderson attorneys have
adopted a rule requiring all mem
bers of the bar to rise when thi
presiding judge enters the court
room. Whatever will restore the
wonted diguity to the courts
should not be left undone by the

The first hitch in the formation
of Heyward county was encoun
tered last Friday when Judge
Aldrich issued a temporary in
junction restraining the board of
commissioners from further ac
tion, upon the ground .that the
Heyward county project is the
same as that of Hammond county
which was defeated, and that an
election under Buch circumstances
could not be held within four year?
from the previous election. The
matter will be fully argued before
Judge Aldrich [on July the 5th.
The outcome will be awaited with
From the following it is clearly
shown that there is far greater
profit in raising sheep than in
growing cotton : Mr. S. B. Mays,
one of the most intelligent and
successful-farmers in the county,
had a flock of tweoty nine sheep.
He recently sold the wool for $52.
and realized $51 from the sale ol
fifteen lambs. Not only have the
twenty-nine sheep put $103 of
ready cash in his pocket, at. s
season of year when there is bu?
little farm produce available for
market, but he has thirty-five
sheep left-nine more than he be
gan with. Nevertheless, many
people say they can not meet their
obligations without planting n
large acreage in cotton. If it
pays Mr. Mays handsomely to di
versify his interests-by giving
ti me-to stock- raising, fruit cul
ture, etc.,-why will it not pay
others also ? He is not more
favorably environed than are hun
dreds .of others.

While nothing definite could

If he went to the eastern part of
the state to preach or deliver an
