Rev. J. A. Clifton, D. D , pre*ched
his last sermon as Pastor oi St. Pauls
on last Sunday morning to a large
congregation. He referred feelingly
to tbe fact that ha had served this
church for four years and that the
time had come when he would have
to leave for a new field. He said he
hbd never spent four years in the
ministry any pleasanter than the four
years he ha? spent in Orangeburg,
and he wouid leave Orangedu-g with
the kindliest feeling toward all of her
citizens. At tne corclusim of Dr.
OMfton's talk, I. W. Bowmin, E q ,
offered a resolution that toe congrega
tion parted with Dr. Clifton with
sincere regret and earnestly prayed
that God's blessing would be upon
him wherever he was sent, which was
adop ed by a rising vote. The hymn
"God be with you till we meet again"
was suag by the congregation. I-i
was a solemn hour. There was hard
ly a dry eye in the congregation, so
intense was the feeling. Dr. Clifton
is very much beloved by his congrega
tion, and as he cannot return to
Orangeburg it is sincerely hoped that
ne will be giv.n as good an appoint
ment as he leaves here.

1 High Price of the Staple Makes '.ho
Cotton, unlike the Czar, is seated
on a staple throne. The good old
Southern monarch, despite ail efforts
of speculators and market gamblers to
the contrary, holds p werful sway
throughout the world. Tne govern
ment report of last Tuesday concern
ing the present crop tends only to the
support of the c ?tton market. As
this crop, on account of the dry fall,
has bsen completely harvested, tbe
estimate this time becomes almost an
j-cual statement as to the number of
bales made. The report puts the
number at 10,167 818. As these fig
ures are considerably below the world's
const m otlon of cotton tke surplus of
last year can easily be taken up with
out reducing the price of the staple at
Cotton that is being held must in
the face of this report become
more valuable tban it is at present
and as much of the holdings is still in
the hands of the farmer tbe prospects
are that fiere will be good times in
Dixie during the next twelve months.
Bud there is more significance in
this small crop of cotton tban that
which attaches to the present year.
With only ten million bales, as stated
? before, tbe surplus of the great 1904
crop will have to be used to meet con
sukiption, and this will3tart tbe 1906
crop with a clean sheet. There will
he none, or very little, residue from
former crops to bear down i.s price.
Taken all in all'the conditions for
prosperity in tbe South are altogether
1 cheerfkl and the people have but tc
use energy and judgment to grasr.

A Disrstrous Fire.
0 i last Sxturdav night the ginnery
anu saw mill of Mr. R. E. E 1 wards, a
prominent and successful farmer liv
ing near Creston, was destroyed by an
incendiary ffre. Besides the loss of
the buildings there were about ninety
bales of cotton burned or partially
burned. It took hard work of the
neighbors t) save Mr. Eiwards' dwel
ling house. There Is verg little doubt
but that tr>e place was set on fi.e by
negroes. ? i Saturday afternoon Mrs.
E 1 wards had to order a negro by the
uame of Vandy Cheeseboro from the
yard. Deputy Sheriff Frank Dukes
went to the scene of tne fire on Mon
day and arrested Vandy Cheeseboro
and another negro by the name of Jas.
Lewis, and Ldg> d them in jail.
Lewis has admitted enough to make
it certain that him and Cheese bor u set
the fire. Such characters richly de
serve death and we hope that if they
are guilty of the crime that they whi
be convicted and strung up. Mr Ed
wards' loss is at least ten or tweive
thousand dollars with small insurance.

Comptroller General Jones "means
business" in the step be bas taken to
ward getting tbe tax tasessment of
property, real as well as personal, in
this state on a market value b .sis, in
stead of on an uneven pretense of a
60 per cent, basis. Tbe circular lc-t
ter of instructions, which he sent out
last week to county auditors, assess
ing boards and county iqiahzlDg
boards directing that the law be strict
ly observed with the beginning of the
new year and that property be assess
ed at its true market value, has been
followed by a call for a co vention of
county auditors to meet with the
comptroller general for a cor-ference
to decide upon a plan of action to be
pursued evenly and similarily through
out the state. The step which the
comptroller general has taken has
caused much talk throughout the
state and has sat property holders to
thinking. Of course, it is a sort of
revolutionary measure, and while the
justice and the sense of it has appeal
ed to many good business men and
big property holders regardless of the
fact much of this sort of property will
be affected, still the thing has not
been generally understood, and there
is a fear also that tbe purpose of tbe
comptroller general to equal'ze tbe
property throughout the state, more
nearly will not be successful under
the departure he is making on account
' of the great proficiency and skill in
' dlviduals and communities have ac
quired by long practice and experience
i in the matter of tax dodglrg.
"The erroneous idea appears to
have taken hold In various parts of
? the state," Mr. Jones said Wednesday
: ''that this is a scheme to increse the
taxes. Such is not the case. My ob
ject is to get property equalized In
this state and stop this shameful tax
dodgings. There are some notorios ex
ceptions, but generally speaklEg the
cotton mills and other big property
are being assessed on a genuine 60 per
' cent, basis, and small property is be
ing assessed at from 9 to 100 per cent.
Only so much money is needed to run
the state and ccunty governments,
and the higher the assessment tbe
greater the yield of money of a given
i levy, but the levy may be easily
changed. In other words, if the as
sessment is doubled throughout tbe
state, the levie3 for state, county and
1 city purposes may ne cut in half.
Tbe inequality and Id justice of the
taxation of property in tnis state has
been a shame,and a disgrace for de

day afcernoon. Tyler had married
the daughter of Cummings. The
couple did not get along yery well
and they separated. The woman
went baok to her father, who went
with her to Tyler's house on Dr.
John B/ckenbackera place near Cam
eron on Monday afternoon. Then It
was that tbe shooting took place,
but what caused it we have not learn
ed but we suppose that the men
quarreled about the way Tyler treat
ed his wife. Tyler surrendered to
the sheriff, and is now in jail. He
claims that Cummings attacked blm
and he shot in self defense. All the
parties concerned in the tragedy are
Deafness Cannot b > Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reaoh tbe diseased portion of the
ear. There is only one way to cure
deafness, and that is by constitution
al remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ingtfthe Eustachlan Tube. When
this tube is Inflamed you have a rum
Wing sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely clus^d, Deafness is
the result, and unless the infiamatlon
can be taken out and this tube restor
ed to its normal condition hearing will
be destroyed forever; n*ne cases out of
ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is
nothing but an inlhmed condition of
the mucous surfte38.
We will give ()oe Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by
Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu
lars free. F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
