cotton. This law is being so thor
oughly enforced, at least in this
section of the country, and meets
BO fully the needs^along this line,
that the majority of the people
will hardly sanction its repeal.
Some member of the legislature
bas introduced a bill whioh pro
vides compensation for jurors in
cases of inquests and in magis

a law, magistrates will have less

low-citizens to sit on their juries.

of the legislature is one that
will provide for the enforcement

has been adopted requesting the
judiciary committees of. the gen
eral assembly to formulate and
introduce a bill that will take the
place of the" law recently declared
unconstitutional by Judge Braw
, It is reported that the ware
houses of many cotton mills are
comparatively empty. If this be j
true, those who are holding cot
ton need not be discouraged by
price- fluctuations. With cotton
goods commanding a high price
and the prospect of only a small
surplus of raw cotton, if any at all,
spot cotton is good property at
A North Carolinian claimB that
he has invented a cotton choppei
that will thin the cotton and
leave the best stalks. A machine
that will -do this is certainly a j
very wonderful device, one that
possesses keener eyes and better
judgment thau the average two
legged cotton chopper. Seldom,)
indeed, can one of the 'latter be
found who will "leaye the best
. stalks." They usually chop the
best out first and leave the meaz
^dwarfed stalksr Every farmer
in Edgefield couaty would like to
-be the owner of one of this North
Carolinian's cotton choppers.
Indicates Kindness of Heart.
Mr. John D. Rockefeller, who
is now wintering in Augusta at
the Bon Air, is frequently severe
criticised by the newspapers
nd is a target for the paragraph
ers throughout the county. Wheth
er this criticism be just or unjust
we are not prepared to say, but
we believe that Mr. Rockefeller
bas a warm and tender heart.
While the blizzard was raging in
the north last w:ek, and, as a re
lit, the operatives who had been
discharged from tbe mills Deer
bis Hudson River estate were
suffering intensely, Mr. Rocke
feller telegraphed his manager to
give them employment on his es
tate, and to allow the poor to get
fuel from his woods. This was a
small act of kindness, yet it shows
that, though a thousand miles
away, Mr. Rockefeller was mind
ful of the poor and suffering.
An Important Meaeure.
During the last session of the
legislature Hon. B. E. N.cholscn
introduced a bill making a major
ity vote of ft town council a legal
verdict, instead of a auauimous
vote being required, as heretofore.
Tfcis measure paned the House a
year ago but was sent to the
senate too late to reach the third
reading before adjournment.
Since the present seision of the
legislature convened, the bill has
passed tho senate and will be
come a law as soon cs the govern
or affixes his signature. The pas
gage of this law will greatly fa
cilitate the enforcement of the
ordinances in small towos.
Ono of the half dozen or more
pullman cars that are attached to
the Atlantic Coast Line's New
York and Florida Special is call
ed the "Edgefield," but very few
Edgefieldians could afford to en
gage a berth on it. Th eso palaces
on wheels that ply between New
York and Florida, hauling north
ern touriste, are lavishly equipped
with almost every comfort and
luxury that money can command.
Each berth of the "Edgefield" is
equipped with an iucaodescen!
light which enables the wealthy
occupant, to pass the hours of the
uight by rpa-ding should ho be
unable to sleep.
Prohibition Empties Jail.
The following dispatch which
was sent out from Atlanta last
week is a very strong testimonial
as to tje, good that is being
wrought in Georgia's capital bi
"For the firBt time in its fifteen
years of existence, every cell a!
the police jail yesterday afternoon
was empty. Not a prisoner waf
incarcerated aud the turnkey*
and matrons were having a ven
"The police attribute this re
markable condition to the prchv*
bition law which went into effect
the first of the year. Since then
there bas been a dearth of arre?is,
most of those made being for
offences other than drunkenness
and disorderly conduct."
No Place Like "Dixie."
The south ?B the most favored
spot iu all the earth, yet roany
do not appreciate the blessiugoi
having their lot cast iu the "Sun
uy South1' until they road of the
blizzards that visit the north and
northwest during winter. A lar?e
portion of tho north is now wrap
ped iri^six inches of snow as a re
sult of the merciless ^blizzard of
last woek. The streets of New
York are blocked with snow
drifts that delay transportation
and- almost paralyze business.
The sum of $150,000 will be re
quired to remove tho snovv from
the streets of that city florie.
There may be labor troubles,
occasional short crops and sundry
other vicissitudes to.cpntend with
in this Southland of ours, but, ?Ul
things considered, there is no
place under the canopy of heaven
that is preferable to "Dixie."

While in Columbia Saturday
Senator Tillman, upon being ask

."Merely speaking as a'farmer
and as one familiar with all con
ditions in South Caroliua for 25
years past I must say that I have
always felt that the lien law,
while a.benefit to a certain class
of the poor white people, was a
drawback and curse to the land
owners, because it put them in
the power of the negroes to, de
mand rent rather than to submit
to the supervision of the land
lords, the result being destruc
tion of land a?d fertility of soi!
aDd absolute destruction where
the country was billy by the
washing away of the soil. Labor
is glowing more aud more de
moralized as cotton rises in price,
because the negroes can easily
gather the little money they want
for clothing and the gratifisation
of their appetites. The repeal of
the law will injure no honeEt

Effect of Smoking os Boys.
Boys learn to smoke because it
is a habit of our times ; because it
is encouraged by the practice of
many eminent men in all (br

Now TV li i 1B tobacco is injurious
to every one, it is far more hurt
ful to those who are grrwing. All
physicians agree in saying that, a
boy, who uses tobaecj can never
be as largo or well developed a
man as he could have been with
out it. He can never have tbrt
strength of body nor vigor of mind
that he would have bad except
for. the use of tobacco.
Dr. N. B. 'Delmater, specialist
in mental md nervous diseases,
says: "1 ho, use of tobacco in any
form previous to. sixteen yeare of
age, has an undoubted tendency
to lower very materially the men
tal force and acumen, and to ren
der the user a persou without am
bition, and may even cause in
sanity or idiocy."
"Out of .thirty-two .jroung men
in New York city, who we re-re -
cently examined for West Point
cade'ship, only nine were accept
ed as physically sound. Beer, tb^
cigarette, too much amusement
and the hidden vices are making
havoc with the physical mauhood
of all our towns and cities."
Journal of the American Medical
T he State Convention of the Far
On Thurs lay last the conven
tion of ihe Farmers' Union for
South Carolina met in Columbia
for the purpose of adopting a new
constitution and electing stat*
officers. The Hon. s Charles S
Barrett, of Georgia, uationa1
president of the union, presided
at all of the meetiugs. Tn address
ing tho convention Mr. Barret?
said the organization had grown
with great rapidity and within a
short lime would embrace ic
its membership every eligible man
in the south.
"In view of .these factp,vsaid
Mr. Barrett, ut[.ere should bo np
dickering with politics or tradiup
with politicians. Nothing will =?o
soon disrupt a body ordestroy its
usefulness ti3 rneddlmg in poli
"We must go on educating our
selves in the principles of co-op?
sration at:d aid each oth?r in buy
ing and selling, as our constitu
tion demands. Every ra^mb^r of
tbe Farmers' Union should heed
the resolutions a? passed at Mem
phis, calling for a general redac
tion of the cotton acreage and the
planting of more food crops. Get
out of debt, and stay out ol' debt
above all things."
South Carolina has forty-one
counties and twenty-four of these
have county organizations. All of
them sent their share of delegates.
The twenty-four counties were
represented by 106 delegates. A
crowd of visitors wa3 also present.
The convention adopted a con
stitution and by-laws which are
more explicit than the former
opes qnder which tho state, ha?
been operating and which did not
give entire satisfaction. The now
constitution, it is thought, will
meet all the necessary require
ments for tb.3 present.
,_The. following officers were elec
ted lo serve until tho annual
pmeetiog in July next:
B Harris, of Pendleton, presi
dent; A J Perritt, of Darlington,
vice-president; J W Reed, of
Spartanburg, secretary-treasurer ;
W E Brodie, of Saluda, chaplain ;

Executive committee, W R
Parks, of Edgefield; JC Strib

of Laurens; J Frank Ashs, of
York, and L L Baker, of Lee.
The convention passed a strong
resolution culliog on ihe legisla
ture, now in sessiou, to adopt the
Richards bill repealing the lien
law. The delegation also called on
the legislature to pass a contract
labor law that would qtand the
test of the courts.
