- A Visit to Bradham's Gins.
Mr. D. M. Bradham has his gin
ning establishment in first class run
ning order, and is prepared to do all
the ginning he can get. He has three
sixty-saw gins; one a Smith gin, one
a Pratt, and a new Winship he has
just bought at a cost of $300. These
are all new gins, each fitted up with
self-feeders and condensers. Mr.
Bradham says it takes just 16 min
utes to gin a bale of cotton, and that
his gins will gin the cotton as fast as
it can be taken from the wagons. He
ginned 18 bales last Saturday before
dinner. The cotton seed is carried
by a cotton seed delivery to a plat
form, where it can in a few minutes
be shoveled into the wagon; or Mr.
Bradham will buy the seed, or ex
change cotton seed meal for it. Mr.
Bradham is well fitted up for the bus
He has just completed, opposite his
gin, a large livery, feed, and sale sta
ble, which he expects shortly to open.
The stable is nicely and conveniently
constructed, and will be quite an ad
dition to the convenience of the town.
Mr. Bradham has, also, a grist mill,
which is running every day. He has
a saw mill but it is used maro es
pecially to cut lumber for his own use.

PAYoJ.A, Sept. 16.-An intimate personal
acquaintance with the surrounding corn
munity at Rosin Hill or Mill Valley assures
you that there live some of the most hos
pitable families Clarendon affords. Rosin
Hill, as your readers well know, is a busi
ness place, just one half mile from Mill
Valley. The Entawville Railroad passes
Mill Valley and Rosin Hill just equal dis
tance between the two. A depot will be
established just where the road crosses. A
beautiful landscape lies south of Sammy
Swamp. There never was a prettier loca
tion for a country village, Rosin Hill being
the capital of Panola. A large business of
turpentine, a steam grist mill with a fine
stand of merchandise conducted by Mr. R.
F. Milligan. The colored people have a
large church beautifully whitewashed. Mill
Valley also has a fine academy. A gin and
grist mill is owned and run successfully by
Mr. A. V. Thames. Between these two last
named points passes the said road, crossing
the Vances Ferry public road just about
midway. Here the depot is to be located.
I understand the names will be changed to

It was my pleasure to be present Satur
day at the company drill of the Connor
Mounted Riflemen, Rosin Hill being their
chosen place of rendezvous. It is needless
for me to say much about this old company.
Its history has been too well written. It is
now composed of some of the best young
meif of the day. Its members are all hand
some, brave men, fully determined to keep
up their organization, fitted for any emer
gency. It was their business day, making
preparation for the day of inspection. To
show you what unbounded interest is man
ifested, it was brought to the notice of the
company that a rumor was circulated in an
other section that the Connor Mounted Rifle
men were to be disbanded because of luke
warmness upon the part of its members.
This gave rise to much animated discussion,
each member expressing indignation at the
falsity of the rumor. Sergeant A - crit
icised the rumor severely as an unpopular
flying report. He said, "This company will
never disband. As for myself I want to
leave this rifle I hold in my hands to my
grandchildren." Lieut. E. P. Briggs made
an earnest, impressive speech. His remarks
were characterized and replete with humor,
wit, and fun, which gave life to the occa
sion. If there is the least hope that this
company will disband, and another built
up on its downfall the sooner such expecta
tions are dispelled the better. The flag was
delivered to the keeping of Mr. J. H. Pin
gle who has been unanimously chosen color
bearer for the company. All who know
"Tossy" will say a better selection could not
have been made.
Lieut. E. P. Briggs presented the compa
ny with a business ledger. The proceed
ings of each meeting will be transcribed as
a record of business. A good thing, for
how-can any organization exist without a
record of its business transactions?
The military has arranged a grand gala
day at the Panola Academy on the 27th.
Gen. Bonham will be received with an en
thusiastic military display. The band from
Sumter will furnish the music. Mrs. Ed
wards from Manning as caterer for the occa
sion warrants the public a feast of attrac
tion which you know Panola has always
borne on such occasions. Just bring along
the pocket book, Let the young ladies have
the supplies; Mrs. Edwards the money.
Connor Mounted Riflemen, thanks to Mr.
and Mrs. Milligan, Tom spent one of the
pleasantest days of his life. TOM.
AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT
Of the success of Hood's Sarsaparilla is the
fact that every purchaser receives a fair
equivalent for his money. The familiar
headline "100 Doses One Dollar,"' stolen by
imitators, is original with and true only of
-Hood's Sarsaparilla. This can easily be
proven by any one who desires to test the
matter. For real economy, buy only Hood's
Sarsaparilla. Sold by all druggists.
