It is very easy to make Hay while the sun shines if you have
A PEERING MO WEE and RAKE.
THE many advantages the Deering Mower has enables the operator to
work it with much more ease than any other machine, and no time lost in go
jog around stumps and trees. , This Machine is so constructed that the driver
is at no trouble in lowering and raising the cutter bar in passing stumps and
trees. With no eifert scarcely he brings the cutter bar to an upright position
without stopping the Machine.. There are many other advantages the Deer
ing Ideal Mower has that-we will show you. when you want a Mower. The
Pitman Rod of this Mower has only two pieces, while all other Machines
have from ten to twenty-five pieces t? wear out and be replaced.
The Mower is not all .in looking up an outfit. It is essential to have r,
goud Rake, and the Beefing Rake is the simplest Rake on the market. A
comparison of our Rake with other makes will convince any farmer that it is
the Rake he needs. The devices for dumping are so constructed that a child
can operate it without any assistance. , If you are in need of an outfit let us
show you our Mower and Rake and be convinced.
Now is the time to sow your stubble-land in Peas and harrow them in
with one of our TORRENT HARROWS.
We are still headquarters for all lines of Hardware, Neils and Wire. -

Struck by Lightning.
Greenville, June 1.?A thunder storm
At 7 o'clock last night was accompanied
by wind and hail in some localitiea near t
the eity, which proved destructive to ?
tho growing crops and damaged fruit i
trees to a considerable extent. The A
most serious damage was in tho vicin- ,
ity of Gantt, midway between here and J
Piedmont, whero cotton and corn were *
blown down by the furious wind, and *
in some instnuces the crops were nlmost j
The electrical display during tho <
Btorm was quite unusual, the lightning '
llashea being very frequent and dnu- j
gerous, as the reports show that trees i
were struck here and there. At tho 1
residence of Mr. J. A. Davenport, not \
far from the city limits on the Augusta 1
road, a bolt of lightniug weut through :
the kitchen and thenco into au adjoin
ing room, from which it ascended 1
through the roof, but did not set lire
to tho building. Mr. Davenport's lit
tle daughter was in the kitchen and
she was struck by tho lightning, which
ran around her legend tore her foot
for several inchcB, but fortunately she
was not greatly injured. Her presouco
of mind was remarkable, as she called
one of the neighbors to their assistance
before realizing that she was at all
injured. Mrs. Dnvenport was in the
room adjoining tho kitchen, and was
coming through tho door when the
bolt parsed, making a narrow escape,
but she was severely shojked and suf
fered more than her daughter.?The
Summary of Laws as to Registration.
Tho importance of the registration
of voter* to participate in tho general
State elections judging from the small
number of registered persons in each
community does not seem to be fully
realized. This year those who are in
terested in the tut uro of tho South are
urging qualified voters to register, and
it is hoped that there will be a general
In order that .all may knew when
they can register and what the require
ments are a representative of tho State
yesterday asked Assistant Attorney
General Guntet1 to prepare the follow
ing summary of the laws on the sub- j
ject of registration:
"The registration books must bo
opened for tho registration of electors
entitled to registration on the first
Monday in each month at tho Court
House, until 80 days before the general
election, when they shall be closed un

"In cities and towns of over 500 in
habitants the Supervisors of Registra
tion shall open the books of registra
tion' for one meeting at such time as
may be designated by the board after
two weeks1 notice, posted in such town
or city, at which meeting shall be reg
istered such qualified electors of the
county as may present themselves.
"Persons becoming of age during the
30 days prior to the general election,
during which the books are closed,
may be registered by applying before
the books are closed, if otherwise quali
fied. The registration books are like
wise closed 80 days before any special
"All persons registered on or before
January 1, 1808, shall remain during

constitution for committing crime, etc.
Persons moving from one county to

which they have moved as soon as it
is determined that they wu' duly reg

forgery, larceny, etc., are ineligible for
"Persons holding a registration cer

In order to vote in the Democratic
primaries, in doing which the majority
of tho voters think they have done
their fall duty as citizens, the require
ments for voting are very simple. Tho
constitution of tho Democratic party
on this subject says: "At the election
only Democratic white voters who
have been residents of tho State 13
months and the county 00 days pre
ceding the next general election, and
such negroes as voted the Democratic
ticket in 1870, and as have voted the
Democratic ticket contint'ously since,

throughout bis audience, while tho Col.

Church, Mr. Duff Sloan. Dr. J. H.
Donald, each of whom, with credit to
hicibelf, and much honest compliment
to tho children, highly entertained tho
The children very happily were man
ly and womanly: it was surprising
how, with thoir few social opportuni
ties tho little ones horo themselves
with such self-conscious ellicioncy.
Not onlv tho littlo ones, but tho larger
ones, who, more unfortunately for the
gift, aro too often surfeited with a
hindering consciousness, they were
enabled to drop tho mantle of sensi
tiveness and procoed to thoir declama
tion with the steadiness, precision und
exec?tlveness of a superintendent
to his mill.
Wo could see tho Colonel's eyos glis
ten with pleasure as these young men
and young women proceeded and de
parted with such prompt regularity
and finesse of accomplishment. No 1
halting, no humoring, no mumbling. :
Certainly the practiced eye of n master i
student mind beheld in them tho j
valuable material for invaluable service |
in the future. .Speaking of their pro- !
liciency, later the Col. said: "I have j
rarely seen in any school or college tho :
satisfactory training manifested by |
these children of tho Piedmont1
schools.'" Tho Col. dilated on tho ne
cessity of education, and heavily scored
those parents who during tho year neg
lcdote thoir children's opportunities.
Said he: "Never before has South
Carolina had necessity for education us
she has now. Constantly moving on
ward in progress nnd tho mills con
ducting this progress. More spindles
in operation than in any Suite in tho
Union, except Massachusetts; more of

than in all New England together

Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Con
necticut; these States combined, hav
ing 21,000, and South Carolina 20,000 of
the new looms. Educated men and
women will be required in these milts.
None others will succeed."
The Col. said a man trying to get
along without education wns handi
capped; ho only knew what his eyes
taught him; ho was walking between
two high fences which shut out the
world. His reading, his intelligent
conversation could bring him no knowl
edge; he had to depend upon his eyes
and tho narrow little intellectual space
