The Cotton Caterpillar.
Editor Times and Democrat:
As the time is fast appraching when
the appearance of the cotton caterpillar
mav reasonably be expected, some in
formation relative to the habits of these
destructive pests, together with a
means of their prevention, may prove
of value to very many of your readers,
who like the writer, suffered so severe
- ly last vear from their ravages.
"The* cotton worm is the caterpillar
of an owlet moth of the tribe of noc
ture. The perfect insect is of a trian
gular shape, about an inch in length;
the upper wings reddish gray, a dark
spot with a whitish centre in the mid
dle; the under wings are darker. The
caterpillar have 16 legs, but the fore
most prop legs are so short that in.
creeping they arch up the back like the
geometers or span worms; the color is
green, with light yellow stripes and
black dots along the back; the second
and third generations are darker than
the first; they grow to the length of an
inch and a half. The eggs from ten to
fifteen, are deposited on the under sur
face of the tender leaves to which they
are firmly attached, and of a color re
sembling the leaf, the period of incuba
tion is variously stated from six to
fifteen days, depending probably on
the heat of the season; the time of
hatching is at night and the young be
gin to eat very soon, growing very
rapidly; the skin is changed several
times before they attain their full
growth. In fifteen to twenty days
after attaining the full size they cease
to feed and form an imperfect cocoon
of a leaf and silk; in this the chrysalis
state is passed, from ten to twelve
days; after this the moths lay their
eggs and die after a period of about a
week, or, according to some observers,
survive mild winters. These insects
were first noticed as destroyers of cot
ton about the year 1800 since which
their ravages have been more or less
serious almost every year; it is believed
by some that they appear at intervals
of three years in the same districts,
and that their greatest ravages occur
after intervals of twenty-one years; the
years 1804,1825 and 1846 were "remarka
ble in this respect; the time of year
varies from June to October. A mouer
degree of cold is sufficient to kill them,
the moisture and strong winds do not
appear to disturb them. They devour
both the short-staple and long-staple
cotton, and rarely, if ever, touch any
other plant. When they appear early
in the season there are usually three
broods. Dr. Burnett is of opinion that
this insect comes from South America
.and that the last brood perish entirely,
either from cold or starvation leaving
no progeny behind them. Fires in the
fields have been recommended as at
tracting and destroying this moth;
white cotton flags, about a yard square
are said to attract it, and to be used its
deposits for the eggs, great numbers
may be caugh t by molasses and vinegar
spread on plates. But these and simi
lar contrivances wiB be of little avail
until the exact appearance of the first
moths is ascertained, then their speedy
destruction would prevent the produc
tion of the second and third broods and
thus limit, if it did not arrest, their
On the Sea Islands of our State these
insects have been a most destructive
I scourge, and after much experience
with; many preventives the most pro
gressive planters are now using with
great success, a combination of calcin
ed marl and Paris Green, in proportions
of forty pounds to one pound. The
Marl is vastly preferable to wheat flour
formerly used, costing but eight dollars
per ton,' compared with forty dollars
tor the latter, and besides, after having
effected its purpose as a destroyer it is
a fine fertilizer for the land. Used
alone it has been found very effective,
but the slight increase of cost by the
addition of Paris Green wouldstrongly
recommend the use of the mixture.
The correctness of the foregoing de
scription of the habits of the caterpil
lar was fully demonstrated last year by
the writer, by a series of experiments
under glass, and should they appear
this summer, it is his purpose to
thoroughly test this remedy, the effica
cy of which has been fully guaranteed
and its use warmly recommended by
many of his friends on the seaboard,
among whom are numbered some of
the most progressive farmers in our
State. A Farmek.

Primary or Convention.
Edisto Township, July 2nd, 1886.
Editor Times and Democrat:
We have been expecting that some of
our leading men would conic out and
express themselves on the question as
to whether we should have the conven
tion or primary system in this county.
We think it an important question, and
that we should not change to the pri
> raary system merely for a change. It
should be thoroughly understood and
discussed by our people before voted
upon. I'll admit our last County Con
vention, to say the least of it, w?s dis
agreeable, but the out come was good.
We got a good ticket. Our county will
compare favorably with any county in
the State as to officers, and, to advan
tage, when compared with some that
nominated their ticket by the primary
system. We are opposed to the primary
system in this section, or at least all
who have expressed themselves in my
hearing are, but in favor of reducing
the delegates to one to every twenty
five voters. That will make" the body
of delegates half as large as formerly,
therefore, more easily controlled. There
are a great many voters in our County,
who are indifferent to p?litics, and by
the primary system those who live iii
the enthusiastic sections will be the
best represented, if I understand the
system. Would that be fair to those
Avho do work hard for the Democratic
party, but happen to live in a luke
warm section? I do not think the
primary system will work to advan
tage in a county where it is all we can
do to get all the voters out once in two
years to cast their votes. Let us hear
the opinions of others on the subject.
We are in favor of a farmers' conven
tion to protect ourselves against ex
tortioners, to control labor, &c, but do
not indorse Mr. Tillman in all of his

A CONFEDERATE REUNION.
The Gathering of the Survivors of the
We clip the following account of the
meeting of the survivors of the Second
Regi nent of Artillery from the News
and Courier of the 2d instant.
The 2d regiment of artillery, S. C. V.,
was formed in 1862 from the counties
of Barnwell, Orangeburg, Edgefield and
Darlington, with T. G. Lamar as col
onel and A. D. Frederick as lieutenant
colonel. Col Lamar died soon after the
battle of Secessionville, and Col. Fred
erick succeeded to the command of the
regiment, which was in active service
in the defence of Charleston until the
evacuation, when it was ordered to
North Carolina and took part in the
battles of Bentonville and Averysboro'.
Yesterday, in accordance with a call
made at it meeting held at Blackville
last April, over two hundred of the
survivors met at Branchville, held a
meeting, listened to three glowing ad
dresses and "fought their battles o'er
again" over an excellent dinner which
their lady friends, who turned out in
full force, had prepared in the grounds
adjoining the Baptist Church. The ex
traordinary rains throughout the coun
try had made many of the roads im
passable and a large number of veterans
of the regiment living in the Forks of
Edisto and the Middle Fen section of
Orangeburg were prevented from at
tending the reunion. Two washouts
on the South Carolina Railway delayed
the Augusta train with a number of
veterans who had uared the elements.
The meeting was held at the Baptist
Church and was presided over by Col.
A. D. Frederick, with Norton Ilayden
and Thomas Ray as secretaries.
J Col. Frederick, .on taking the chair,
greeted his old comrades warmly "de
lighting," he said, "to meet again, after
having served together four years, to
look into each other's faces, to press
each other's hands, to ask, 'How is it
with you?' and to pray God's blessing
to be With you to the" end. The regi
ment cannot number upon its bright
escutcheon so large an array of battles
fought and won or lost, whether for
tunately or otherwise, as others can
who were in diilerent fields, as the
necessities of the times and the exigen
cies of the service required us to re
main where we did. But in every en
gagement in which it participated it
discharged its duty manfully and hero
ically, so as to meet the hearty thanks
and otlicial approval of our superior
otllcers." Col. Frederick here drew
from his pocket the original report of
the battle of Secessionville by Col. T.
G. Lamar and requested Col. Felder to
read it to the meeting, as it had never
been published. The report pays a
glorious tribute to the 2d artillery for
its part in that memorable action. On
the back is endorsed in the autograph
of Governor Fickens: "Col. Moses will
please copy and file the copy and, hand
back original to Col. Lamar." A re
minder of the days when the Robber
Governor figured as a Confederate sol
Mr. Charles Dantzler, the orator of
the day, was then introduced, and for
near an hour kept the feelings of the
audience at the highest tension by a
singularly eloquent discussion of and
appeal for Confederate memories and
principles and a strong and lucid expo
sition of the rignt of secession under the
Constitution. He indignantly rebuked
the idea that the negro was the chief
factor in the question at issue, saying :
"Had he never been brought from the
Dark Continent, had he never seen the
light of the sun on America's soil, the
troubles of 1860 would have arisen." In
closing he said : "My friends of the 2d
artillerv, it is one of the misfortunes of
youth that I cannot cull you comrades,
but the short, anxious and sad experi
ence of my boyhood's days, when I saw
my sire with knapsack and musket en
list in the service of his country, and
when he bade a last adieu on his way to
Virginia, and the study and reflections
of maturer years create within me a
love and an admiration for that cause
of which he was a martyr, and you the
survivors. May time, deal gently with
you; may the snows of many winters
fall lightly on your heads, and at your
last great reunion at the final rollcall
may each of you, standing in Iiis place,
receive the reward of the brave, the
true and the good."
Dr. J. F. Baggott and Mr. G, W. M.
Williams then addressed the meeting
with force and eloquence,, and were
warmly applauded. The meeting then
adjourned for dinner.
On reassembling it was resolved that
five gentlemen be appointed from
Orangeburg and Barn well counties
respectively to solicit co-operation with
all military organizations to erect a
monument to the Confederate dead of
their respective counties at their coun

that Dr. Lartigue, of Barnwell, and

to have addressed the survivors, had
been unavoidably detained.
Assisting Nature a Little Hit.
When the resources of Nature have
become retarded, no matter from what
cause, it is then quite time to help the
Liver and Spleen, and other organs, to
perform their thorough duty--or we
shall soon be quite ill. In such cases
there is no more natural remedy than a<
mild cathartic, one which wi if be sure
to perform its duty without injuring
the system in the" least. Such, let us
sayin all candor, is Simmons' Hepatic
Compound. It will gently move the
bowels, without irritating them in the
least: when the medicine works, the
bowels are soothed and healed like a
charm?yet the medicine is more effec
tive than Calomel; one of the principal
ingredients possess all the good qualities
of that poisonous drug, without any of
its constituents. A dose of Simmons'
Hepatic Compound every night on
going to bed, will infallibly restore
health. Testimony of the bight si con
sideration from every portion of the
country, and from all classes of people,
abundantly substantiate this fact. The
importance of this treatment cannot be
over-estimated, and it should lie tried
by ;tll means.

instructed to vote for it in the County
Convention. The members of the club
are united, and that peculiar doctrine
held elsewhere in the State, viz: "to
exclude all but farmers from the emolu
ments of office," has no following here.
The farmers are willing for the disciples
of iEsculapius and Blackstone to have
a showing, all however, are in favor of
a new deal and insist on the primary
plan as the most effectual one in secur
ing that deal. We propose to confine
and settle all our differences within
the party. The old Radical hacks need
not look this way for an opening to
regain place and power to enjoy the
five years more of good stealing.
A Public TniKt Wisely Administered.
The treasury statemeut for the first
fisical year of the Democratic Adminis
tration will afford the toothless opposi
tion organs a fine nut to mumble for
some months. The national debt has
been decreased during the year by
$44,012,280. The cash .in the treasury
iias been increased, in the same time'by
$51,485,479. The country is therefore
$96,097,705 better oil', financially speak
ing on these two accounts alone, than
it was a year ago. The amouut of gold
and silver in hand, moreover, has been
increased by $04.803,341, aud thirteen
millions of silver dollars have been added
to the circulation. In spite of the hard
times, it is thus shown, the Democratic
Administration has not only paid off
nearly fifty millions of the public debt,
but has so managed the finances of the
country as to enable the treasury to meet
any reasonable demand that may be
made upon it. The credit for this ad
mirable showing is, of course, due to
Mr. Manning's sound ' Vnent and
sagacity in the managen . of his great
public trust, aud to the President's
wisdom iu selecting so capable an officer
to carry out his views in this department
of the administration. It is peculiarly
gratifying to be informed, at the same
time, that 'Mr. Manning's health has so
greatly improved as to give promise
that he will soon be able to resume the
discharge of his important duties, so that
the President will continue: to have the

For twelve or fourteen years I have been
a great sufferer from a terrible form of
blood poison which ran into a secondary,
and finally it was pronounced a tertiary
form. My bead, face and shoulders be
came almost a mass of corruption, and
finally the disease commenced eating away
my skull bones. I became so horribly re
pulsive that for three years I absolutely re
fused to let people see me. .I used large
quantities of most noted blood remedies and
applied to nearly all physicians near me,
but my condition continued to grow worse,
and all said that I must surely die. My
bones became the seat of excruciated aches
and pains; my nights were passed in misery;
I was reduced in flesh and strength; my
kidneys were terribly deranged, and life
became a burden to me.

rrilE SUCCESSFUL CAREER OF
A the Mutual Reserve Fund Life Asso
ciation is marvellous in the annals of life
insurance enterprise. Its name has be
come a tower of strength, and has been
well earned by the untiring devotion of
President Harp'er and his associates. Its
astonishing prosperity has provoked attacks
which are best repelled by a frank and full
exhibit of Its greatly increasing line of
i business. Up to July 1,18S5, this shows a
[gain of no less than $13 214,580 over that
of the corresponping period last year.
In June alone" its mortuary receipts ex
ceeded ?250,000, of which over 500,000 went
into the Reserve Fund?that triple buttress
upon which the association justly prides
itself. This reserve now amounts to ?425,
000, and is employed for three purposes
only?to pay death claims, if any should
occur in excess of the American Experience
Mortality Tables; to make good any poss
ible deficiency In the Death Fund Account,
and to be apportioned among those who
have been members of the Association fif
teen years, etc. As the first and second
contingencies named are not likely to arise,
the third object is the one upou which the
fund is practically expended. It is full of
other good points, amons which may be
mentioned the economical salary list?less
than ?50,000 for carrying on the whole work
of the vast institution?and payments to
widows and orphans at the rate of over
52,000 cash cash day.?From the old and
conservative New York Daily Journal ol
Commerce, July 10,18S5.
