Mrs. Lyon Entertained.
Thursday afternoon from four to
.six o'clock Mrs. T. J. Lyon enter
tained a number of friends with
auction bridge in honor of her sis
ter, Mrs. P. P. Burns of Birming
ham. A dozen skilled players were
seated about the three tables that
had been arranged by the hostess,
and as there was not a novice among
rthem the gamej was exceedingly
spirited. Miss Faunie Sheppard, a
sister of the hostess, made th? high
.est score, but she very graciously
withdrew in favor of Miss Annie
'. Bee who made the second highest j
record, the first prize, a pair of silk
hose, being awarded her. The con
solation prize was borne away by |
Mrs. E. H. Folk.
Instead of serving refreshments
in the usual manner, at the close of j
the game the guests were invited
into the spacious dining room and
were sealed about the handsome
mahogany table, which in addition
to 9 large vase of beautiful red car
nations, was adorned with a richly
embroidered centre piece and mats
of cluny lace. The red shades of the
candelabras reflected a soft glow of
lijrht that heightened the beauty of
the enchanting scene. A three course
tea was served by the hostess. It |
was around the large mahogany
.dining table, rather than about the
three card tables, that the climax of
the delightful occasion was reached.
Mrs. Lyon's guests Thursday af
ternoon were Mesdames J. G. Hol
land, N. G. Evans, C. A. Griffin,
J. D. Holstein, W. S. Oogburn, E.
H. Folk, J. S. Byrd, J. H. Tomp
.kins, P. P. Burns, Miss Annie Bee
and Miss Fannie Sheppard.
As the guests departed each one
was presented with a red carnation
as a souvenir of the occasion.
Capt. Duncan Encouraged.
Soon after the announcement was
made that the Edgefield Rifles
would be inspected on February 8,j
Cifcpt. Duncan made a strenuous ef
fort to enlist the active co-operation
of the men who in the past have
-composed the company, to the end
that acreditadle inspection be held.
Having failed to receive the sup
port of a sufficient number to pass
the inspection, Capt. Duncau de
cided that it would be useless to
make an effort io continue the com
pany, and so announced at the last j
meeting Thursday night. However,
pursuant to the announcement made, !
lieut. Hunt came to Edgefield Mon-1
.day to hold the inspection. There,
were not sufficient men available to f
hold the regular inspection but a j
considerable number were assembled
in the armory and marched to the |
public square, where they were in
stiucted in squads under the direc
tion of Lieut. Hunt. Both of these I
officers, one representing the State |
and the other the National, ffovern
ment, seemed to be pleased with the
nucleus that Capt. Duncan has for
a company, and encouraged him
-and the other officers in their ef
forts to maintain a militia company
It is to be hoped that the young
men will rally to the support of the
-officers of the compan}7, who pub
lish a card in this issue of The Ad
vertiser. The business men and
the citizens generally should also
give them their moral support. Let's

Death of Mrs. P. B. Day.
Sunday morning at 3:00. o'clock
the useful life of Mrs. Annie Duri
soe Day came to a close. Her leave
taking was sudden and unexpected,
hut for her, it was a merciful means.
Why should one HO cheerful and
gracious as she be called upon to
pass through days or weeks of pain
and suffering, and the anticipation
of leaving so happy a home, and so
noble and devoted a family, the idol
of her husband and sons? She was
greatly loved and possessed of a
winsome manner, which drew new
friends to her, and old ones closer.
The immediate cause of her
death was said to be apoplexy, and
after the first attack she never re
gained consciousness of the1 world
Mrs. Day spent her childhood
and girlhood in Edgefield and vi
cinity, the daughter and only child
of the late D. R. Durisoe, for many
years connected with The Edge
field Advertiser. She was married
to Mr. P. B. Day and living at
Trenton in the earliest recollection
of the writer, but from childhood
the name of Annie Durisoe had
been often lovingly spoken of by
many friends who knew and loved
her in Edgefield.
Mrs. Day was a member of the
Episcopal church of Trenton and
ene of the most active members.
Just a few weeks ago she was in
Edgefield in order to aid in the ar
rangement for a W. C. T. U. con
vention at Trenton, and to visit
again, and, as it transphed, for the
last ?time, some of the friends of
her youth and renew the associations
of the past.
She was one of the most interest
ed and active temperance workers
of pioneer days in Edgefield county,
having been enthusiastically asso
ciated with this work from the ear
ly days, and at thc time of her
death was leader of the Loyal Tem
perance Legion of Trenton.
Mrs. Day leaves her husband Mr.
P. B. Dav and four sons, D. R.
Day, J. F. Day, P. B. Day, Jr.,
and George Day, and friends all
over our county who weep over
their loss, but rejoice that such a
genuine, and ?devoted soul was al
lowed to spend her life in our midst.

I Feeding Cottonseed Meal and
Hulls to Horses and Mules.
We have already heard it stated
that The Progressive Farmer has
advised feeding horses and mules
on cottonseed meal and hulls, the
statement being made as if we ad
vised using these feeds ooly.
We have stated that idle horses
and mules would get along on hulls
and meal, and the best proof that,
they will, is that considerable num
bers are actually doing so; but we
have not advised this method of
feeding. We have also stated that
where hay was scarce horses and
mules might have from a third to a
half of their roughage from hulls,
but that is far different from advis
ing that cotton-seed hulls be the
only roughage. We have also
stated that every horse and mule in
the South now being fed as much as <
two pounds of grain a day should
receive two pounds of cottonseed
meal because, feeding value con
sidered, it is our cheapest concen
trated feeding stuff at present
prices. But this is a long way from
advertising that working horses and
mules should be required to woirk
on cottonseed meal and hulls alone.
No doubt horses and mules may
in some cases get along on hulls and
meal for a short period, even when
given enough meal to enable them
to do hard work; but the man who
asks his work stock to get along on
cottonseed meal and hulls alone
when doing hard work is asking too
much. Hulls and meal do not make
a good ration for cattle for long
feeding periods, and it is pretty
certain they will prove less satisface
tory for hard working horses.and
For work stock we have not ad
vised the use of more than fonr or
five pounds of hulls a day and two
pounds of cottonseed meal. The bal
ance of the ration should be made
up of hay and corn, or some other
grain. In fact, any man who buys
hulls to feed horses and mules
proves himself to that extent a poor
farmer. They are nc t a good rough
age for working horses and mules.
The horse's stomach is small and
he should be given better feed.

Frank P. Bonham Has Passed
Announcement of the death of
Francis Piokens Bonham at his
home in San Francisco, Cal., on
Thursday morning:, was received by
his relatives in Columbia yesterday.
He was a brother of Miss Annie
Bonham and Mrs. Gadsden E. Shand
of this city and Gen. Milledge L.
Bonham of Anderson. Other rela
tives in Columbia are Mrs. Frank
C. Tompkins, Mrs. David G. Elli
son, Miss Roberta Aldrich and Geo
Mr. Bonham was married five
years ago to Miss Georgia Merton
vof JSan Francisco, who with two
sons, aged four and one year,
respectivtly, survives him. The fu
neral and interment will be held in
Mr. Bonham wan a son of the late
M. L. Bonham, war governor of
South Carolina, and his wife, Anne
Patience Bonham, being the young
est of 24 children. He was born on
his father's plantation near Edge
field, March 13, 1873, but came to
this city early in life when his fa
ther moved his family here from
Edgefield. Until reaching manhood
Mr. Bonham resided in Columbia
and many of his friends and former
schoolmates remember him with pe
culiar pleasure, as he was endowe 1
to a rare degree with the qualities
that made him generally popular
and endeared him to all who knew
him well. After leaving Columbia
he resided for a time in Savannah,
Atlanta and other southern cities.
When war with Spain was declared
Mr. Bonham was prompt to volun
teer his services and was a member
of the First Georgia regiment.
Later he served in the Philippines
and after returning to the United
States made his home in San Fran
cisco, where he has since resided.
Twelve Things to do This
1. Do not burn the cotton and
corn stalks; plow them under.
2. Keep the plows running every
sunny day; now is the time to turn
under trash that it may rot and not
be in the way of cultivation.
3. Give the garden a liberal fer
tilization and get the earlier vege
4. Write your representatives in
the legislature-tonight-about the
legislation for.farmers so repeatedly
urged in The Progressive Farmer.
?St.- Let your United States senators
.and representatives hear from you
tftrtrtrt our need tor a rural credits
6. Co-operate with a few of your
neighbors and buy your fertilizers
in car lots.
I. Roll the stored cotton out and
look it over carefully to see wheth
er it is entirely dry and not rotting.
8. Give the farm implements and
harness a thorough going over, to
see that everything is ship-shape
for the spring rush.
9. In plowing the rolling fields
don't forget to keep the broad ter
races plowed up to the proper
height and width.
10. Open all half-filled ditches
and drains, that the water may keep
moving and that the fields may dry
out for ?pring plowing.
II. Keep after the stumps, weeds
and briars that make too many of
onr fields look slovenly and un
12. Keep the road drag going
that the spring hauling may be
made easier.-Progressive Farmer.

When a Farmer is Governor.
Of sixteen governors of Sooth
Carolina sinse 1876, five have been
lawyers. They have not been
wholly dependent for legal advice
on an attorney general's office.
Eleven governors, besides the in
cumbent, have been farmers or bu
siness men. When the governor is
not a lawyer, and one of considera
ble attainments, he is daily, some
! times hourly, in need of advice
from the attorney general's office.
In some cf the States a legal ad
viser, not connected with the attor
ney general's offics is provided for
Governor Manning's chief pri
vate interest is farming, though he
is also a banker. Most of his ex
perience has been that of a farmer.
He is certainly not a lawyer.
The State will not now discuss;
the question that has arisen be
tween the offices of the executive
and the attorney general, but we
direct attention to the fact that the
people have elected a farmer aud
business man, not a lawyer, as
Whether theyhave given him fa
cilities for obtaining the legal as
sistance required for the adminis
tration of his office, they may judge
Every farmer in South Carolina
can imagine what his feelings
would be were he compelled to de
pend for advice on lawyers whom
he believed to be unfriendly to his
interest, whether or not that belief
were well founded-The Stale.

Refer it to The People,
The biil now pending: in the leg
islature, called the "referendum,"^
submitting: the question of state
wide prohibition to the people, at
an election to be held in September,
will, in all probability pass. And
there is no good reason why st
should not pa?s. Why should not
the voters be given an opportunity
of saying whether they want a state
wide law or not? If they want it,
they have a right to it, and if they
don't want it, they will say Bo and
that will be an end of the matter.
But there will be no end to the pro-,
hibition agitation until the people
have had a fair trial of state-wide
Ever since 1892 there has been
a strong prohibition sentiment in
the stale. In that year a special box
was provided at the polls in the
Democratic primary, and the prohi
bitionists carried the state by 10,
000 majority, but when the prohi
bition bill was introduced that fall
in the legislature, Governor Till
man, who was dominating that body, '
had it enact the infamous dispensa
ry law, which made conditions far
worse than they had been.
South Carolina has tried the bar
room system, the dispensary and
local option- indeed, about every
thing else but state-wide prohibi
tion. Now that Tennessee, Virgin
ia, West Virginia, Mississippi,
North Carolina, Georgia and Ala
bama, all have a state-wide law, why
should not South Carolina make
the venture? We say pass the law
and make no exceptions as to Char
leston or any other locality. There
is no good reason why Charleston
should not take her medicine just- %
like Columbia, Beaufort, George
town and other places. It comes
with ill grace any wav ,for Charles
ton to be asking in one breath to be
allowed to have-her own way and
in the nsxt breath making the
threat that a state-wide law 'can
never be enforced in that city. Let
Charleston be subject to the law
just like other places.-Lancaster .
