A Correction.?In our paragraph
last weeek in reference to hay con

have read "thousands" instead of '?mil
lions." We have no doubt but that
those who read it understood this and
made the neccessary correction. Our
thanks are tendered "H," however, for
calling our attention to the error, but
we are still of the opinion that not a
pound of foreign hay should be sold in
our county. Every pound that is need
ed by our people can be raised right
within our own borders and it should
be done. It is much better to keep the
82,500 at home than to send it off.

A RoyAti Singer.?There has just
appeared in the musical field a new
volume by L. 0. Emerson, the well
known teacher, 'convention leader and
composer. It is a collection of new
Quartets, Duets, Hymn-Tunes, An
thems, etc., together with a full and
complete course in Elementary Instruc
tions, designed for singing-schools,
musical institues, conventions, etc.
The title of this new work is "The
Royal Singer," and it is well worthy of
the name. Indeed, it is considered by
those competent to judge the best of
the author's singing-school books, and
one that teacher and learner can trust
without hesitancy*. Beside the elemen
tary part, there is a Vocal Culture de
partment at the close of the book, which
will be usef ull in forming and develop
ing the voice. There are 191 pages in
this new book, which abound in choice
new compositions and carefully selected
gems for part singing, such as anthems,
glees, rounds, chants, quartets, hymn
tunes, etc., all arranged in the author's
well known tasteful style, and sure to
interest as well as instruct the singer.
Teachers of singing-schools, and those
who conduct the music in public
schools and other educational institu
tions, should examine "The Royal Sin
ger." It is published by the old and re
liable house of Oliver Ditson & Co..
Boston. The price of the book is sixty
cents. Sent by mail to any address.

How to Make Good Persimmon
Beer.?Now is the time to make this
great Southern beverage, that is so
healthful and harmless. It is worthy
of any one's attention. For five gal
lons of beer get two gallons of nice ripe
persimmons (they ought to be stem
med, as the steins and burrs give it an
astringent taste,) and to those two gal
lons of persimmons add four gallons of
warm water, and to this add about one
pound of dried apples or peaches and a
few ripe locusts, if they are conven
ient. Let it stand about one week in a
warm room or cellar, wdien it will be
ready for use. When used out add a
few more persimmons and locusts and
fill with warm water again. If you
want to keep the persimmons until
spring, pick them clean and mix with
wheat bran and bake in large pones or
cakes, the same as lieht bread. When
you use this cake dissolve it in Warm
water and add about two quarts New
Orleans syrup to five gallons, to start
fermentation. It is a healthy and
Save Your Cotton Seed.?A lead
ing exchange says : "Any intelligent
farmer in South Carolina, who" would
like to known what is the character and
aims of the American Cotton Seed Oil
Trust Company, can easily inform him
self by studying the history of the Stan
dard Oil Company, which has been in
existence only a few years, but whose
president is now reckoned to be one
of the richest men in the United States.
It would be better to burn every pound
of cotton seed made in the South than
to support so unprincipled a monopoly
by selling to it at any price which it
would fix to be paid." The farmers of
Orangeburg for several years past have
been selling their cotton seed what they
supposed was a good profit. The above
extract shows what will be the end if
they continue to sell. It is simply a
money making scheme to buy the seed
of our farmers at little cost and enrich
the men who have a monopoly in the
oil business. Our farmers should con
sider this fact._
No Such Good Luck.?We clip the
following from the Clarendon Enter

awhile bites became numerous, tish

didn't murmur, but thought like the
man driving the ox cart of apples to
market and on reaching the top of a
very high hill the cart came uncoupled;
down went the apples to the very bot
tom of the hill. The driver stood in a
swoon, till a man came along on horse
back and said: "Why don't you curse?"
lie replied: "Ah, stranger, that's a case

It happened at a hotel not far from

clasped her hand.

It now appears probable that Dr. T.
C. Powell of Rocky Mount, X. (!., who
shot and killed William Sharpe on Sat
urday of last week, has been lynched.
Powell was arrested at the time", and it
was at first reported that while the
Sheriff was taking him to jail he was
met on the road by a number of Pow

Now it is stated thai while ollicer Ar
rington was taking Powell to Kdge
court County jail in a buggy he was
met on the road three miles from Rocky
Mount by a body of masked men, who
demanded the prisoner, saying they
wanted to lynch him. Arrington at
first refused to deliver his prisoner over
to the maskers, but was forced to do so,
and not only gave up the prisoner, but
also the buggy. Nothing has since
been learned of Powell, and what the
maskers did with him is not known.
Powell was a strong Democrat, and his
victim was the son of J. .1. Sharpe, who

Permit me to correct the statement
in The Times and Democrat of the
ISth to the effect that "the value of
the hay consumed in Orangeburg Coun
ty the greater part of which is brought
from the North is enormous. It is
millions of dollars annually." The cir
culation of such a statement will be, if
not arrested, most damaging to the
reputation of our farmers for thrift. I
suppose it was inadvertently allowed to
get in your columns. I am pretty sure
that there have been received at this
depot not over fifteen ears of hay,
the average ju ice of which is S225. be
ing a total ol' say $3,375. This includes
receipts for turpentine workers who
buy all forage. The total annual re
ceipts of hay in Charleston for lbs? r>,
was 4*1,800 hales worth $55,0(10. This
for distribution over several counties.
I am sure that 82,500 will cover cost of
hay used here bv livery men and sold.
