Prizes and Honorable Mention of the
Pinewood Agricultural Club.
PIKEWOOD, Oct. 9.-Xr. Editor: As
you could not publish the report as I
first wrote it, I will try again. The in
tention of the Pinewood Agricultural
Club is to bring about a more social
feeling among neighbors, and to try
to make one acre make as much as
two, and to cause other clubs to be
formed in this or other counties. This
club has three meetings a year: one
in February for the reception of mem
bers; another in July to appoint a day
of inspection of crops and to appoint
judges; and a third in August to in
spect, &c. They plant prize acres of
corn and cotton for which they give
prizes. They also give a prize for the
best potatoes, and they have honora
ble mention for the best crop, the best
kept place, work stock, &c.
This club met this year for inspec
tion of crops on the 5th of August.
As I had been informed that they
wanted me to report for the Sumter
papers, I left home that morning in
company with Mr. Wm. . Kolb, and
in a short space of time was at Pine
woo, where we met with Messrs. E
P. Geddings and J. D. Childers. After
waiting a few moments we were join
ed by Mr. A. W. Griffin, when we pro
ceeded to Mr. D. W. Brown's. When
we got there we found. Mrs. B. and
the little Bs. in Sunday prim, all
smiles, &c. In a short time all the
club were there except Mr. J. R Grif
fin, who from indisposition was una
ble to attend. The following judges
were chosen: C. R. Felder, W. E.
Kolb, J. D. Hoyle, and E B. Felder.
W. J. Ardis was appointed reporter
for the Sunder Advance, Watchman and
>hron, M TnmEs, Clarendon
Enderprise, and the Charleston Weekly
World. (I have reported to all these
papers, but have not seen or heard
anything from them.) Before going
into the field Mr. B. closed his front
door for a moment, and then we were
invited in to take some refreshments.
We found his table burdened with
cake and wine. Some, I am glad to
state, took no wine. We then went
forth to see the crop, which was fine.
On returning to the house Mr. Brown
set some fine watermelons before us.
Then we hitched up and away to Mr.
. P. Geddlings's. We'found Mrs. G.
sick, but the little Gs. were plentiful.
We went out and saw his very fine
crop. On coming back to the house
were asked in for more refreshments,
and found his table laden with cake
and lemonade. Then 1r. James D.
Childers brought out his box of cigars,
and we lighted up and away for Mr.
John W. Ardis'-. Found Mrs. A. and
daughter both sick. Saw his crop,
and then away to Mr. Joseph R. Grif
fin's. Gave the animals some oats, and
went in to cool ofY a little before go
ing to the field. Saw his new house
he was building, but he needs a bird
for his eage (a wife) when he gets it
completed. Saw his brick yard where
he was having some fine brick made;
then saw his crop. On returning to
his house there was rain, cake, wine,
and lemonade. Now for Mr. R. Le
Grand Geddings's. The rain had his
crop very wvet, but we saw it all the
same. Back to the house and more
cake and lemonade. Now for the
last pl'ace, Mr. John M. DesChamps's,
and oh my what a crop, but you will
see about that in the judge's report.
We saw his crop, and now old sol has
id himself behind the hills of the
west, and we are eight miles from
home, so we must go. "No, no; you
must go in." We went in, and there
was more cake and lemonade. It is
no wonder some of us were sick be
fore we got home.
Friday, the 8th of August was the
day set apart for the picnic. On near
ing the grounds (which were in the
rove near Mrs. Eliza Griffn's house),
in company with that brave old sol
dier, John A. Brown, sweet strains of
music greeted the ear. We found Mr.
James R. Griffn with violin and Mr.
Joe Barwick~with banjo. They were
wanted to go in and play for the la
dies, but Mr. B. being young and
bashful they did not go. As a rain
was coming up, we all went into the
house, when Miss Lillie Hodge went
to the organ, and Messrs. Paul B.
Hodge and A. W. Griffn to the vio
lins, and gave us some charming mu
sic. Then came the command from
the president: "Gentlemen, take the
ladies out for lemonade." More mu
sic, P. B. Hodge at the organ, and R.
. Kolb and A. W. Griffn with the
violins. The president, Joseph R.
Giffn, then called the club to order
for the report of judges, &c.
After a few explanatory remarks by
the president, C. R. Felder, in behalf
of the judges, made the following re
D. WV. Brown, prize acre cotton
2,000 pounds seed cotton, general crop
1,000 pounds; prize acre corn 35
bushels, general crop 17 bushels.
E. P. Geddings, prize acre cotton
1,500 pounds, general crop 900
pounds; no prize acre corn, general
crop 18 bushels.
J. WV. Ardis, prize acre cotton 1,300
pounds, general crop 1,200 pounds;
priae acre corn 25 bushels, general
crop 22 bushels.
Joseph R Griffn, prize acre cotton
1,600 pounds, general crop 900
pounds; prize acre corn 28 bushels,
general crop 18 bushels.
R. L. Geddings, no prize acres. gen
eral crop cotton 1,400 pounds; corn 25
J. M. DesChamps, prize acre cotton
2,500 pounds, general crop 1,600
pounds; prize acre corn 45 bushels,
general crop 10 bushels. (This is an
oat patch, corn planted before the oats
were cut off; from the 14 acres he
gathered between 25 and 30 thousand
pounds of oats.)
Mr. Felder then made us a beauti
ful speech on the unity of farmers.
The prizes were presented by Mr. C.
R. Felder, which he did with an ap
propriate little speech.
The first prize, consisting of a wa
ter set, for best acre cotton, awarded
to 3. M. DesChamps.
Second prize for best acre corn, six
goblets, to J. M. DesChamps.
Third prize for best potatoes, a
lamp, awarded to B. P. Geddings.
Several gentlemen were called oa
for speeches, but all refused. So now
dnner, and a dinner it was sure;
plenty of goods things for the inner
man. I left at 5 P. M., thinking it had
been a day well spent.
I forgot to give the honorable men
tions: Best kept place, J. M. Des
Champs; best general crop, J. 3.
DesChamps; best general corn, R. L.
Geddings; best farm, D. W. Brown;
best work stock, could not decide, all
were fine. Those men say I must say
that they are all true Tillman Demo
crats, and don't you forget it.
Yours with much respect,
V. J. AnDIs.
N. B. _1r. Editor, I hope those
who I have reported to and they have
not published it, wi.i do so when they

An Interesting Meeting of the Wilsons
EDiTOR %I.MNuN1 TIME:-It was on
ly necessary to be present at the meet
ing of Wilsons literary club last Fri
day night, to see that she has not only
come to life again, but has come to
the front determined to surpass any
thing she has hitherto put on record.
The jolly laugh of the lad, with the
bonnie smile of the lass, and the
beaming countenance of the older
folk were quite sufficient to pronounce
the verdict, "well done." Speaking of
the older folk, we are always pleased
to see them out. The programs are
intended and calculated to interest
and enliven anybody, from the gray
headed man to the curly headed
We haven't an exact copy of the
program, but as well as we can re
member it was about as follows:
An awful mystery, by "Misses Nellie
and Lizzie Nelson, and Messrs. Irvin
Plowden and E. C. Coskrey.
Julia's peaches, by Messrs. W. L.
Burgess and Ed. Wilson.
Curfew must not ring to-night, by
Miss Lizzie Nelson.
Meeting of the Bulgertown literary
society, by Misses Jennie, Belle, and
Fannie Strange, and Messrs. T. L.
Bagnal, Ed. Wilson, E. C. Coskrey, A.
P. and W. L. Burgess.
Somebody's business, by 3iss Hattie
A maiden martyr, by Miss Fannie
*A warm reception, by "Misses Belle
and Jennie Strange, and Messrs. E. C.
Coskrey and A. P. Burgess.
Recitation, by Miss Jennie Strange.
Last but not least came a comic
song of forty-two verses, "He's a jim
dandy," by Mr. Schiffley. We want
to say in explanation of this last piece,
that when Mr. Schiffley had sang three
verses the applause became so great
that he could proceed no further, but
promised to finish at the next meet
ing. The program was interspersed
with as fine music, we venture to say,
as can be furnished by any band or
anvbody in the county. Now, we
don't mean to make an empty boast,
but if anybody that wasn't there will
just take the trouble to ask somebody
that was there they will tell you that
Messrs. Campbell and Anderson can't
be beat on the violin. After a very
pleasant sociable the society adjourn
ed to meet the second Friday night in
What you reckon's the matter with
Mr. Politics ? We thought a month
or two ago that he was about to lose
his mind, go crazy, or something of
the kind, but now, oh now what's the
Mr. Editor, you're running a whop
ping big paper, can't you invent some
kind of a machine that will help us
poor farmers to get a better, I mean
bigger price for cotton. B.
History is full of such changes.
Time works wonders, and politics
'makes some strange revolutions.
It was only fourteen years ago that
we emerged from the tremendous
campaign of '76 happy and hopeful.
"A. C. Haskell, chairman" had been
virtually the dictator of the state for
months. His word was law. At his
order armed men trooped out in every
part of the state, ready to go any
where and do any dangerous or des
pErate service. At his call the rich
and poor swarmed to the tax offices
and paid money like water to carry
on the Hampton government. At his
suggestion the churches flew open for
fasting' humiliation and prayer or for
thanksgiving services. Every Demco
crat recognized him as leader and
king, and every Radical hated him
with bitter hatred as the incarnation
of the shotgun democracy.
Wade Hampton was the idol of his
people. His word was law, his pres
ence the signal for an ovation, and the
entire white population was eager to
crod uonhim marks of honor, af
fetion, and devotion.
D. H. Chamberlain was a fugitive,
after having long been hemmed in by
protecting federal bayonets, followed
by the bitterest curses, the deepest
hatred that any man was ever the ob
ject of. He was not safe from insult
or assault any moment of his stay in
Now a Radical state convention vir
tually offers A. C. Haskell its nomina
tion and support for governor against
a Democratic nominee, and he de
clines to tell the reporters how he
feels or thinks about it. Wade Hamp
ton has been publicly jeered and in
suted while attempting to address an
audience of South Carolina white
men. Daniel H. Chamberlain is a
rich and comfortable citizen of the
state and receiver of one of its lead
ing railway lines, and goes and comes
in ease, safety and comfort, recog
nized as very nearly a Democrat.
Suppose any man had fourteer
years ago predicted this situation
Would not the prediction have beer
taken as good reason for declaring
him a lunatic ? Verily in politice
nothing is sure, and present appear
ances give no basis for forecasting
even a little of the future.-Green ville

IS CONSUMPTION INCURABLE ?
Read the following: Mr. C. H. Morris,
Newark. Ark., says: "Was down with Ab.
scess of Lungs, and friends and physiciam~
pronounced me an Incurable Consumptive.
Began taking Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, am now on my third bottle,
and able to oversee the work on my farm.
It is the finest medicine ever made."
Jesse Middlewart, Decatur, Ohio, says:
Had it not been for Dr. King's New Discov
ery for Consumption I would have died of
Lung Troubles. Was given up by doctors.
Am now in best of health." Try it. Sample
[ Atlanta constitution.3
One thousand and ninety dollars
for a heating apparatus for the school
building. Mr. Hunnicut said that
was the very lowest price and so we
closed the contract. All that money
to keep the children warm. We have
just been bled to the bone tQ get our
new building ready, and didn't think
much about how it was to be tired
up, and now comes another big ex
pense. It is all for the children, and
they don't care a cent what it costs
us. They don't know how we have to
turn and twist, and plot and plan to
keep up with expenses and taxes. I
am glad they don't. I wouldn't have
mine to know how much I am
troubled. It seems to me but a little
while since I paid about $200 for tax
es, and now here it is again. Town
taxes, $119; "pay by the 15th or I'll
levy on you," says the marshal. If
you owe the merchant you can put
him off, but the marshal is going to
have your money, whether you have
got it or not.-Nothing certain but
death and taxes. In a month more
the State and county will want anoth- 1
er $100. I wish I was poor and
didn't have anything to tax. No I
don't either, but if I was poor I would
take comfort in dodging taxes.-This
free school is not free to me, but is
free to the poor. If I was a poor
man I would vote for fine public
school buildings, and a fine court
house, and a big tax to work the
roads. I would vote for iron bridges
across the rivers. I would vote for
county bonds and city bonds to raise
lots of money, and have every big
road macadamized, and have a good
school in every militia district. If I
was a right poor man and was en
vious of the rich I'd vote for every
thing that would tax him, and that
would improve the condition of the
people. It is the strangest thing in
the world that every negro and most
every poor white man will vote against
all progress; all improvement. The
man who worked hardest against
building a school house is liable for
only forty-five cents of the cost. I
gave him half a dollar and told him
to hush and he hushed. The poor
people have no reason to abuse the
rich. The rich keep up the govern
ment and the courts and bridges, and
protect society, and make life and
property secure. One tenth of the
people pay nine-tenths of the taxes.
That shows a very unequal distribu
tion of wealth, but there is some
good in every bad, and the good in
this case is that the rich have to pay
nearly all the taxes, while the poor
receive an equal share of all public
benefits. Our State press is on the
right line now. Good roads and
schools are bigger. things than poli
tics. A United States Senator can't
give us either. Our people have en
dured bad roads so long that I'm
afraid they would be scared to travel
on a pike. They would go round it
for awhile, certain.-There are five
miles between town and my farm
that wore everything out in two win
ters. Long red hills and muddy hol
lows, and deep ruts and turnouts,
and gullies that were awful close in
dark nights, and streams that were
dangerous in swollen waters.
It is unpleasant even now to recall
the mishaps and breakdowns and nar
row escapes that beset us on that oft
frequented road. How often and how
anxiously would the good mother go
to the door and look into the gather
ing darkness for her belated children
when they were belated. How glad to
hear the cheerful song they always
sung as the tired team rose over the
hill that overlooked our home.
That five mile stretch is the worst
part of the road to Fairmnount, and it
could be made perfectly level by easy
grading around the hills, and would
be a shorter way. But I reckon it
will be where it is and no better for
Iyears and years to come. The county
won't fi- it, nor charter anybody else
tobfx it. In Kentucky you pay a
nickle every five miles to roll sweetly
over the pike, but our people would
think it a Southern outrage. Twenty
miles over a smooth, level, rock-bot
tomed road for twenty cents. Three
bales of cotton is a good load for two
mules from Fairmount, and it takes
all day to make it. Six bales could be
hauled on a turnpike, and with less
strain on the team. Twenty cents toll
would save two days' teaming. Just
think of it, farmers of Fairmount and
Pine Log, and all along the line.
'Don't you think your alliances can
find employment here ? Is this not
something better than politics? Ken
tucky has these pike roads every
where, and so has Tennessee. Then,
why not Georgia? What will Mr.
Burge and Mr. LeConte do about it
when they get to the legislature ?
IWhat will anybody do about it? Good,
smooth, dry roads in the country will
keep the young farmers contented. I
rode over one in Tennessee with a
farmer boy for twenty miles, and we
made it in two hours and a half.--He
bragged on his colts all the way and
was happy. They are not happy
when hauling cotton or wood over our
rod. They break down sometimes
and use cussory language. A bad
road is the nursery of profanity. There
is not a more pitiful sight than a
heavy-loaded wagon broken down in
a mud hole ten or twenty miles from
home and a cold winter rain meander
ing around. The wagon has to be
unloaded, the broken wheel taken off
the spindle. Somehow or other the
old man gets it to a blacksmith shop
somewhere, while the boy shivers for
half a day by the camp-fire. They
travel in wet clothes and mud and
get back home sometime in the night,
and would swear off from farm life if
they could.-Oi course they would.
Such things take away the farmer
boy's spirit, and he longs for a brake
man's pl ace on a railroad, wvhere he
can ride high and dry at twenty miles
an hour, and take the chances of break
iiig his neck.
Yes, the two best things for the
farmers are good roads and good
schools, and they can be had if the
alliance says so. Vote for a tax large
enough to secure good teachers
christian teachers who will give moral
training, and lift the children up to a
higher and more hopeful view of life.
Moral training, good habits, good
principles, are of more importance
than maps and figures, but let us all
go along together. A youth had bet
ter not learn to write if he has no
moral training to keep him from forg
ing a note. He had better know no
book-keeping if his principles incline
ment. There is a radical defect in
the public school system, especially in
the North, where teaching is an ice
elad and ironclad business-all mind
and no hear. They have only 4 per
cent. of illiteracy, while the South
averages 24, but their convictions for
crime outnumber ours five to one, ac
cording to white population.
We are proud of our public school
in Cartersville, because our teachers
never lose an opportunity to impress
good morals and good principles upon
the pupils.-When my daughter tells
me that Ella or Lou or Mary is a good
scholar, I always ask is she a good
girl, is she kind, does she kncw the
golden rule, or is she vain and con
ceited? Some of the smartest
scholars I know are the meauest.-I
don't care how smart a boy is in fig
ures, if he will cheat another boy in a
trade or impose upon those who are
smaller than he is. I still love the
boys who were good to me. Most of
them are dead, but I love to recall
their kindness in my memory. Kind
ness makes a deeper impression than
scholarship. I fear that this feature
in our schools has too low a place. It
should have the highest. Scholarship
does not make good citizens, but
morality and principles do.-Is he
honest ? Is he truthful? Is he strictly
temperate ? Is he willing to work ? are
the questions that are asked when a
young man seeks employment. Will
the teacher teach these things ? should
be asked of every applicant for a
place in our schools. Bri Ar:.

FACTS FOR THE SICK!
A Letter from an Eminent Divire in Regard tu
the pest Medicine in the Word. Ikad.
A.uT.%r, GA., Jan. 2, 1890.-Six months
ago, at the reauest of a friend who was in
terested in the sale of King's Royal Germe
tuer, I made a written statement of the ben
efits I had received from the use of that
medicine. In that statement I expressed the
belief that it would cure me entirely of ca
tairh. Within the last two months I have
received letters from every quarter of the
nation calling on me for further informa
tion in regard to my health. It Las been
impossible for me to write privately to each
person who has made this reqnest, arl I am
therefore ander the necessity of waking
another public statement.
I am free from catarrh. I believe th tI
could get a certificate to this effect from any
competcnt physician. I have used no mcd
icine within the last six months except
King's Royal Germetuer. Mv health is bet
ter than it has been in thirty- years. I am
in possession of information which war
rants me in saying that the relief which I
have experienced from the use of the meai
cine is not more certain and radical than
that which it has brought to hundreds of
persons in Georgia and other States.
I feel it to be my duty to say, also, that
the effects of this remedy upon my wife
have been even more signal and wonderful.
She has been almost a lifelong invalid from
nervous headache, neuralgia, and rheuma
tism. In a period of thirty years she hat
scarcely had a day's exemption from pain.
She has been using Germetuer about twc
months. A more complete transformatior
I have never witnessed. Every symptom o:
disease has disappeared, She appears to be
twenty ye-ars younger. and is as happy and
playful as a healthy child. We have per
suaded mnany of our friends to take the
medcticne, and the testimony of all of then:
is that it is a grea.~t remedy.
