Mining, S. C.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1890.
For the past few weeks it has just been
impossible to get out a supplement, and it
was equally impossible to get in all the
matter we wished.
This week all editorial matter is crowded
out, as well as several communications.
Among these communications is one from
Mr. J. M. Welch, of Fulton, on the Pine
wood election, which will appear next week.
Mr. J. P. Mitchum, of Jordan, who two
weeks ago attempted to commit suicide by
shooting himself in the head with a pistol,
is greatly improved and the doctors now
think he may recover. He expects to be
able in a few days to attend to his regular
A Private Note.
Our rule is to promptly cut off a subscrib
er's name if he does not promptly renew,
but on account of a pressure of politics for
the past few weeks we have been regligent
of this duty, and several subscriptions have
been allowed to run over a few weeks. We
have got down to business again, howe-er,
andafter this week will, unless the renewal
comes in, stop the paper when tLe time is
out. We don't like to lose a subscriber, and
we have a tender feeling for each one on our
list, but it's business, and unless a subscrib
or renews, we of course take it for granted
that he does not want the paper and we stop
A Brilliant Financial Success.
For the past week the money market at
the North has been in a great flutter owing
to the fnancial stringency in New York.
An evening paper says: Mr. Wanamak
er's troubles and this great stringency are
both due to the same cause; and the prime
cause of the action is the Louisianna Lot
This company is being fought by Mr.
Wanamaker and as soon as they learned
that their enemy the king merchant was
borrowing, they withdrew from the banks
and consequently from circulation $7,000,
This so tightened the money market as
not only prevented Wanamaker from bor
rowing, but also brought such a scarcity of
ready money in New York as nearly caused
a genuine panic, and did succeed in bring
ling about a number of large failures.
Among the number was a bank and several
supposably strong mercantile firms.
Such a condition of things does harm to
merchants that are forced to do business on
a borrowed capital, but with merchants that
have a ready cash capital like the Levi
Brothers of Samter, it always proves a greit
benefit; because they are always on the
lookout to take advantage of every oppor
tunity offered in the commercial world,
whereby they can buy their goods cheap in
order that they may contirue giving their
large and growing trade the advantage of
buying from them cheaper than elsewhere.
A depression in the money markets causes
maufactarers who are often caught with
their paper in bank, to unload their stocks
at a sacrifice in order to meet their paper
and save themselves from financial ruin.
IL is then that the Levi Brothers step in
Ai*th -their immense cash capital and make
investments at such reduced figures that
they can afford to sell their goods at factory
They pride themselves on being the lead
ers in the general mercantile business in
the city of Sumter, and it is not surprising
that they should be as they are young men,
reared up in the mercantile business under
n~ oe of the best financiers in the State.
They are from this county originally, and
Siis but natural for them to want their
home folks call on them whenever they vis
i t Samter. They are offering to the trade
inythingini the general mercantile line at
such low prices that they feel warranted in
-saying that you will save money by making

S A STRANGEHISTORY.
SSomne kecount of the Union Soldier who
Engrossed Gen. Grant's Terms of Sur
render at Appomatton
To the Editor of The News and Courier:
~Tis year Ihave had a very pleasant cor
respondence with a gentleman who, 4during
a portion of the Confederate war, was Gen.
&Grant's military secretary. Early in 1863 he
entered the volunteer service, and was mus
tered out as a brevet brigadier general at
the close of the war. Besides being Gen.
:Grant's military secretary, he was also as
aistant adjutant general on his staf. When
Gen. Lee surrendered at Appomattox this
gentean engrossed Gen. Grant's terms of
surrender. These facts alone would make
him a person of interest, but there are other
facts connected with him which double the
interest, for he is not only a full-blooded
Indian, .but is also a celebrated Inctian
1saehem. Doubtless my readers will start
with surprise at this statement, but it is
true. The English name of the chief is Ely
a. Parker; his Indian name is Do-nc-ho-ga
wa which signifies "keeper of the door."
e is the chief sachem of the Six Naitions
in New York State, of which people 'there
ar some five thousand living in that State.
Gen. Parker is of the Seneca Nation, the
same nation which produced the illustrious
oraor Bed Jacket. He was born on the
Tonawanda reservation in Western New
Yrk After the Confederate war he entered
the regular armay as second lieutenant in
the 2d United States cavalry and rose to the
postion of brigadier general. From 1869
to 1872 he filled the important position of
commissioner of Indian afairs, stationed at
Washington. He is the only full-blooded
Indian, so far as I know, who has ever filled
a political position in the United States. In
1872 he severed his connection with govern
mental affairs. He has been Chief Sachem
of the Six Nations since 1852, and is an au
thority an Indian matters, He now lives in
New York city.
The General comes from an Indian family
of which the Seneca Natlon can justly be
proud. His brother, Chief Nicholas H.
Parker, is a person of prominence among
~the New York Senecas; his Indian name is
-.Gi-an-twa-ka, which signifies "the Planter."
Miss Caroline Parker, the General's sister,
married the late John Moontpleasant, the
head chief of the Tuscaroras; his Indian
name was Dah-gah-yah-dent, which meant
"Falling Woods." Mrs. Mountpleasant's
Indian name is Ge-go-sa-seh, which means
"Wild Cat." The New York Herald informs:
us that the Parkers are "highly educated."
I have found the General to be a genial
and pleasant correspondent. Let us hope
that a full history of this interesting Indian
'-fmly will one day be written.

Restored His Wife's Health. g
My wife suffered for years from de
bility and a general breaking down of a
health, the results of diseases peculiar s
to women. A few bottles of Swift's
Specific (S. S. S.) restored her to per
fect health. It built her up, increased
her appetite and weight, until she is
now the picture of health. The speedy
recovery of my wife from her long
illness caused all my family and sever
al of my neighbors, to take S. S. S.

Baby Cured. M
My baby had the, worst case of ca- c
tarrh that I ever saw a small child af
flicted with. The-nasal discharge was
very large and very offensive. Having
some personal knowledge of the cura
tive properties of S. S. S. I gave the
baby a course of S. S. S., using noth- c"
ing else. In a short time the dis
charge from the nose stopped, and the
catarrh was cured entirely and perma
nently, as there has been no return of
it since. D.vw ZAnTMA,
