both corn and cotton, are in excellent

injured by recent heavy rains. The
-corn crop is unusually fine.
D. M. Bradham asks us to say to the pub

The farmers of Clarendon who ex

lave no hesitancy in saying that as
far as reliability, carefulness, and
promptness in all matters entrusted to
them, Messrs. Seekendorf & Middle
ton of No.1 Central Wharf, Charles
ton, S. C., rank among the first and
strongest houses of the city. They
never fail to get the best classifications
the staple warrants, wherein lies the
secret of obtaining the highest prices.
Their salesmen are gentlemen of long
experience in classifying and selling
cotton, and know, as well as the Liv
erpool man who buys, what they sell,
when to sell, and how to sell. On all
consignments they make the most
Liberal advances. By forwarding rail
road receipt from any point, an ac
companied draft for three fourths the
value of the cotton will be honored.
This is an advantage to those who
live along the line of railroads with
out proximity to the bank. The firm
of Seekendorf & Middleton have made
liberal advances to many farmers of
our county, who speak in the highest
terms of the house; and merely to
enourage the progress of our town
have taken stock in our bank, and are
willing to invest more money in it if
it becomes necessary. We therefore
take pleasure in recommending this
firm to our people.

There must be a remedy. Is there one ?
Shouldn't the county commissioners take
some steps in this matter even though they
are told that it is not law by their "legal ad

quiet." Would the railroad render any aid
in remedying the trouble. Have they been
spoken to by those who have the right and
are expected to act?
The amount required to repair the cause

ously estimated at from eight hundred to
two thousand dollars. This work would be
practically useless unless several more wa

embankment that the imprisoned waters
might find a way to escape instearl of turn

the county road.
In conclusion allow me to express
a hope that a happy solution of the
whole matter will be had
at an early date. And that our commission
ers will see the propriety of going into these
matters at once. Now if some parties who
do a good quantity of talking to no purpose
save that of telling the news (?) will close
up and take a good square look at the roads
above referred to and instead of trying to
convince people of something that can't be

will soon be in better shape.

PRESIDENT TINDAL'S ADDRESS.
A Brief Report of Col. J. E. Tindal's Ad
dress to the County Alliance, Aug. 9,
The long desired opportunity of
the farmers is at hand. After the war
the whole labor system of the South
was disorganized, and had to be set
tied by our people under most trying
political conditions. And when we
reached a point where men could cal
culate with some certainty the quan
tity and quality of farm help they
might depend upon, the farmers found
themselves in a wretched financial
condition with all the business meth
ods of the country against them. They
find themselves also a prey of unscru
pulous corporations or combination
of men. They find great prosperity
attending the other great business in
terests of the country, while agricul
ture is greatly depressed and discour
aged. The income of other indus
tries in 1860 was about $8,500,000,
which in 1887 had reached the enor
mous sum of nearly $56,000,000; while
the agricultural income of 1887 was
no greater than it was in 1860, though
nearly twice the number of people
were engaged in that pursuit.
The great business interests are
commerce, manufactures, banks, rail
roads, and agriculture. All these ex
cept agriculture have been and are
thoroughly organized under most
intelligent direction, keenly alive to
their opportunities and interests, and
on the alert to protect and to promote
FARMERS HAvE NOT BEEN ORGANIZED.
The farmers on the other hand
without organization, without the
power of protecting or promoting
their interests, ignorant of their
rights, and scattered and helpless,
have become the prey of every un
scrupulous and designing man or set
of men, who could take advantage of
them as easily as the hawk swoops
down upon his helpless and unsus
ORGANIZATION THE REMEDY.
The remedy for them is in thor
ough organization of those engaged
in their business. Senator George
very aptly said that the farmers could
no more, without organization, hold
their own in competition with all the
other organized interests of the land
than raw militia can stand against a
well drilled and disciplined army. It
is their only possible hope, their only
way to protect themselves, by educa
tion and united action in this free
country against that propensity of
man to take all advantage of the
weakness or ignorance of his fellow.
Just the kind of organization you
need and have been looking for, is the
Farmers' Alliance. Its existeice and
rapid development ought of itself to
prove the necessity of it, to those slow
and too conservative farmers who
have not yet joined it.
Suppose one of you should, in 1860,
have just returned like Rip Van Win
kle from a long isolation, to your
on , have seen men arming,
drilling, and fo i companies ev
erywhere you went, yld have
said, "There must be a threa
war on hand. These quiet folks would
not be stirring about after this fashion
for nothing." You would have right
ly concluded that there was a neces
sity for such conduct. Now see from
the Atlantic to the western border of
Texas, the farmers,-those quiet, con
servative people, the slowest of all
men to organize,-movin~g earnestly
in every locality, raising their banner
upon which is inscribed truth and
unity, and allying .themselves with
each other with a zeal unparalleled!
.AwAKE, YE FARMERS!1
It ought to awaken, if not alarm ev
ery honest farmer, to see this strange
and wonderful movement of men of
the same interests and necessities with
himself. What does it all mean ? To
defeat the bagging trust ! That is not
all. There are other forces at work
against your interests besides the bag
ging trust. Many of these will van
ish upon the defeat of the bagging
trust. Hence a victory here means
victory against a long line. The world
don't believe the farmers capable of
united action. But when cotton bag
ging is sold by all your merchants, as
it will be in time, the world will learn
better, and respect you more than it
has done since the war. Good men of
every calling will rejoice when all bus
iness has been brought to a normal
basis of truth and justice, when
wrongs in business will be regarded
as immoral and unlawful; when the
honest merchant, manufacturer, and
farmer shall know each other, and
feel that square iBealing is backed up
by public sentiment and by the laws
of the land.
Mr. Tindal then explained the prin
ciples of the order, the significance
of the various obligations, and how
they all pointed to one grand aim,
viz: equal rights for all men, and a
better state mentally, morally, social
ly, and financially, for the farmers.
ALL MEN HAvE THEIR SECRETS.
Alluding to the denunciation of the
order by some, for being a secret or
ganization, he refuted that objection
to the satisfaction of the members. It
was no more to be complained of than
the secret of any other business. One
of you, he said, go into any store, and
inquire, say for some jeans. The mer
chant throws it upon his counter and
looks at a mark on it. That mark to
you is unintelligible, it is the mer
chant's secret. You recognize his
right to it, and you do not complain
of it. Nor haB any one a right to
complain of your secret.
Thnflowed a detailed account
of the meeting of the State Alliance,
when the various acts of that body
were explained. He extolled the spir
it manifested which was noble, and
he felt it was the determination of all
to make the Alliance a real blessing
to the country.
He further explained the business
methods adopted in different counties,
as learned from their representatives,
and how the several plans are report
ed to have worked. There would be
more uniformity when the State Ex
ehage should get underway, but
enough was accomplished this year,
wherever the order had been organ
ized in time, to show beyond the
chance of cavil, its great advantage to
the farmers, in a business sense, as
well as its educational advantages.
The farmers were urged to push for
ward the organization in this county,
wich was considerably behind other
counties in the State, because we had
bendisappointed in getting the or
anier first oi-dered to us. We
should be fully equipped, with our
business plans perfected before this
DON'T USE JUTE BAGGING.
No farmer should use jute bagging,
whether he is an Alliance man or not,
but especially should the members of
the Alliance make immediate ar
rangements to get all the cotton bag
ging necessary for their crops. As
our arrangements had not been per
fected and knowing the importance of
baling at once the first cotton, he had
arranged for a thousand yards to be
distributed until the regular order
could be filled. This was at the dis
posal of the members. There would
be ample cotton bagging for all Alli
ance men and for those outside of the
order who are intending to use it.
Remember that all the cotton is not
picked at once, and we have until
January to complete baling it.
He hoped that another year the
cotton mills of S. C. will be able to
supply all the bagging we will need
in the State for cotton, and all the
bags for our guano, which would cer
tainly be to our interest as a whole

Mr. J. M. Venters was drowned in the
Pee Dee swamp on the 17th inst. He was
floating cypress logs. It is supposed he
was struck on the head by the falling limb
of a tree and stunned. There was no one
in company with him. He was found by
his father, Mr. J. M. Venters.

Lawrence Burgess, a negro boy seven.
teen or eighteen years of age, was commit
ted to jail at this place last Friday, charged
with an attempt to commit a criminal as
sault, the day before, on Estelle Canty, a
white girl, aged about 10 or i2 years, a1
daughter of Mr. Stephen R. Canty. She
had been ti> Mr. S. P. Brockinton's store,
about a mile from her father's house, and
was returning with some bundles when she
was approached by the boy. She thought
he was after her bundles and offered them
to him, but he proceeded to lay his hands
on her. Her screams attracted the atten
tion of a gentleman who was not far off and
who, on going to her relief, saw the boy near
by. The boy was brought to town by her
father and another gentleman, and turned
over to the proper authorities to be dealt
with as the law directs. Mr. Canty is cer
tainly a law abiding man. This is the first
instance, so far as wc know, in this county.
where a negro has attempted such treatment
toward a white female, and if the statement,
as related to us above, be true, and we have
no reason to doubt it, Lawrence Burgess
should be made to suffer the full extent of
the law's penalty.

Mr. Alfred Scarborough's hair and beard,
which a few years ago was snow white, has
been turning black again for the last three
years, and is now quite noticeable. Mr.
Scarborough is now in his 90th year, being
bornein May 1800. The hair of Mr. Scar
borough's mother, who died about 15 years
ago at the age of 93 years, had also begun
to turn back to its original color, and was
quite noticeable before she died. Her eye
sight also was improving considerably. Mr.
Scarborough mentioned above is the father
of Col. W. D. Scarborough, and is spending
the remaining years of a peaceful, godly,
and well spent life at his old home near
Manville in this county, loved and.honored
by all who know him. Mr. Scarborough,
who is more familiarly known as Squire
Scarborough, was the oldest in a family of
17 children all of whom lived until they
were over 21 years of age. He has an aunt,
Mrs. Abigail Peebles, the mother of Col. H.

Charleston's Promising Outlook.
[Nees and Courier.]
The fall trade has opened unusually early
this season, and during the past week there
have been a large number of merchants in
Charleston, some of whom purchased their
full stocks for the fall trade. Among the
buyers were merchants from distant points
-points within the natural commercial
territory of Charleston-who were tolled off
to other markets but have come back to
their first love.
The indications are that Charleston will
ao a very large business this season, and
it is expected that there will be a rush of
buyers to this market during the next week.
There is room and welcome for all who
come. Charleston is ready to meet the
tradesmen from the country, and to give
them better bargains, and more bargains,
than any other market south of New York
or east of Chicago. In a word, there's no
place like Charleston !
