It is reported that au insect if
doing* considerable damage to I
cotton in Richmond county, near
Angosta. The drought did the
.-damage around Edgefield in July
and August. But little injury can
be done now, unless it1 be to the
open1 cotton, and in a few short
weeki nothing will be left for the
iaaaets except the burs and stalks.
The Halls" and ..bears" will be
fighting over the fleecy staple.

According to unwarranted
charges made in the late campaign,
.?j one ; would expect Mayor R. G.
Rhett to take the Btu mp for Ts f tl
and -Sherman ; but such is not the [
case. Early in October Mr. Rhett j
will, at the request of the national
Democratic executive committee,
make a tour of Nebraska, Iowa
and Illinois, delivering addresses
in tho interest of-Bryan and Kern.
Thia does cot sound like Mr.
Rhett bears any taint of Repub

I^he science of flying, i s so new

published in 1889, does not con

verb-"aviate," and a needed
group of adjectives.-The State.
The Standard Dictionary, pub
lished in 1893 by the Funk ?
Wagnalls Company, of New York,
contains both '"aviation" and
"aviator." The former is defined
as '"'the art of flying," and the lat
ter as a "machine for self-support j

;? Mass Meeting* Called.
livery where in thia iesue, Mr. T.
P. forgan, cotton weigher for the
town, of Edgefield, publishes a
.ard calling upon the farmers to
melt m the court house on Satur
mt Mr. Morgan is unwilling to
withdraw from fhe position with
out first notifying and conferring
with the farmers who elected him. j
In order to reduce his expenses,
Mr. Morgan has since the first of
September been going home at
night, a distancejof ten miles, and
returning the next morning to
be'at his post here. '
Aiken county farmers are call
ing to Senator-elect Smith to do
what he can to raise the price of
cotton. If the belief is at all geu
eral among the planters that Mr.
Smith is able to boost the price of
th? staple, there is going to be
many disappointed. Cotton may
go up.or it may go down, but it
isn't in the power of Mr. Smith or
- any other man outside of specula
tors to bring about the change.-]
I It is unfortunately true that
"speculators" largely fix the price
of .cotton, but " this should not be
the case. Just as merchants fix
' a price for their merchandise;
just as professional men fix a
price for their services, so should
the fsrmer control the price of
his produoe. The southern fsrmer
hading practically a monopoly of
cotton production, this should be
especially trae of the great staple
thi?t clothes the world. However,
as long &i pressing obligations
force the farmers to mai kit the
. bulk of the cotton crop in three,
months of tba year, instead of in
twelve months, but little relief
can be expected.
.The key to the situation, is for
those who produce cotton to
gradually become independent
by making as many of the every
day necessities at home as possi
ble, which will enable them to
hold the cotton on their farms
until a satisfactory price is offer
ed for it.

Great Damage From Freshet
Mr. W. H. Ryan who now re
sides near Clark's Hill was in
Edgefield on Saturday, and iu
speaking of the damage that the
recent freshet did in his section,
he stated that the farmers, who
had fine corn ou the river 'have
not an ear left. All who planted
the river Bottoms' would have
made corn to sell, whereas now
they will have to buy every grain
that is used on their farms. -
Mr. W. S. Middleton built his
hay barn several ?feet above the
highwater mark of 1S88, and the
freshet of 1908 rose five or six
feet in his barn, damaging a
quantity of bay. Nixon Bros. had
some of their bay washed from

The people of the Clark's Hill

Mr. E. S. Johnson.
Editor Advertiser:' Please al
low *ne space ?D your p?per lo re
ply to "A Statement from Mr. E.
S. Johnson" which appeared iu
your last week's issue. A bri?f re
capitulation of the Reel Cotton
Matter is necessary that the pub
lic may be informed.
Ou April 13th, 1905, Mr. J H
Reel brought iuto my store s?m
ples of 25 bales of cotton on which
he requested a bid. Before bidding
on the cottou, I asked Mr. Reel
if his cotton was dry and free
from damage; he replied that hp
had toe cotton housed, and would
guarantee ii free from water or
damage. With this assurance from
Mr. Reel I bought bis cottou and
paid him my full limit therefor.
If I had seen the bales of cotton,,
or sampled it myself, I would not
have put the ahov^ questions to
Mr. Reel, but would have relied
upon my own judgment as to con
dition, nor would I have expected
any reimbursement from him for
loss if any. Such however was not
the case. I bought this cottou
from samples furnished by Mr.
Reel, and under his guarantee as,
to condition, and relied implicit
ly upon his statement. Upon re
ceipt of sales for this cotton, I
immediately requepted Granit?
ville Manufacturing Company to
bold tbe cotton to be re-weighed.
I called Air. Reel's attention to
the account sales and requested
that he see the cotton ra-weighed
as I expected bira under his guar
antee, to reimburse me for the
one hundred aud sixty seven
pounds loss unless he could show
that the ?ranitevillo weigher was
in error. Mr. Reel, for reasons
which were not satisfactory to me,
declined either to see the cotton
re-weighed or satisfy me Li any
way for my loss, uotwitbs'anding
the fact that I had a 6Wom cer
tificate showing one bale io hive
lost 53 pounds. I did not hesitate
to express to Mr. R?el my sur
prise at. his position in this mat
ter, and the:-, and there dropped
the matter so far as he was con
Mr. E fl Johnson Was at
that time acting cotton weigher
for Mr. J W Cheatham, and when
Mr. R^el refused to reimburse me
for the one hundred and sixty
i seven pounds which I had lost (on
account of water aud damage) I
explained the matter to Mr. John
son and told him that as c >tt )n
weigher he personally was Habit*
to me at least for one bale which
lost on account'of water and dam
age 53 pounds. He agreed to pay
me thu loss on-this oue bah;,
which in uo wise was- a compro
mise or settlement for Mr. R?el's
liability to me. I, as'Mr. John
son states, made several r>questE
for a settlement on this one bale,
but as a matter of record, he did
1 not pay me any money, but I de
ducted 4 and 03-100 dollars from
iMjCsome' one postedVat' the-eu
trance of the Edgefield voting pre
cinct an affidavit -signed by Mr.
E S Johnson which stated in sub
stance, that "he had settled the
matter of loss on. 25 bales of cot
ton which I had bought from Mr.
Reel." Immediately under and on
tbe margin of the affidavit I en
dorsed in substance as follows:
"If Johnson has collected any
money frc i Rael for me, he bas
done so without authority from
rae, and has not paid me ons cent
of .it. (I did not take copy ot affi
davit or my endorsement thereon,
hence cannot give exact wording)
?Mr. Johnson Dublishes my receipt
for 4and03-100 dollars. I have nev
er, nor never will deny this receipt,
because it cjrresponds to a ceut
with my records. Mr. Johnson
claims that my endorsement on
his affidavit raises a question ol
veracity between us, and I agree
fully with him. He says his good
name is worth as much to bim as
is mine to mo, nevertheless he
ehootB at mine, and in doing so
leaves his as a . target, and if in
the melee his gets hit, he mu3t
blame himself and not me.
I leu/e it to a fair minded pub
lic to say whether a settlement
for Mr. Johnson's liability on one
bale of cotton is a settlement
from bim for Mr. Reel's liability
to me on 25,bales. 53 lbs is not 167
lbs ; $4.03 is not $12.t>9 ; one is not
twenty-five; a settlement hy de
duction from Mr. Johnson's ac
count is not money collected from
Mr. Reel and paid me. I Btill say
that if Mr. Johnson has collected
any money from Mr. Reel for ma
he did so without my authority
and has not paid me one1 cent ol
I respectfully Inave this, ques
tion of Jveracity between . us to a
verdict from the houest public.
