in EXPOSITION MEETING.
ted General Moise Delivers a Magnificent Addres
nd The initial meeting looking to get
ion ting Clarendon interested in the Sout!
vas Carolina and West-Indian Exposition
ian which is to begin in the city of Charles
ton next December and run until June
uld was held in the court house last Satur
ap. day and, although the notice was ver;
short, there was a fairly good audience
so far as numbers were concerned, bu
gig- the attendance was not as good as the
lay importance of the meeting deserved
got The gentlemen drawn hither from dis
so trances came principally through th<
too efforts of Hon. E. R. Plowden, Jr., who
it. in behalf of the Exposition Commission
on ers for this county, addressed persona
letters before the published notice hai
time to. reach the general public. Ther
or, last Saturday was the day fixed for 'the
ne, Cotton Growers' convention, and some
alt came on account of it. Hon. Jas. E
B. Tindal was expected to deliver an ad
' dress to the Cotton Growers, but he
failed to appear.
ew When the people gathered in the
ter court room Capt. D. J. Bradham rap
ent ped for order and nominated Hon. H,
'on B. Richardson to preside over the
xon meeting. Mr. Richardson was choser
,y? without opposition,. and in a few brie!
re- remarks introduced as the orator fox
the occasion Gen. E. W. Moise, who de
his livered an address that was deserving
on of an audience composed of every pub
lic-spirited citizen in Clarendon county.
It was indeed a magnificent word pic.
ild ture of the scope of the Exposition, its
by purposes and its possible results, and in
Lce the choicest of English he eloquently
>n. portrayed our present condition. He
m- made it practically clear that it is to
!ry our interests that we arouse the people
,- to grasp the opportunity held out by
this Exposition for their material bet
terment, and to urge them to go to
th work at once on their farms, their
an workshops, their forests and in their
ae swamps to prepare the resources of
ig. Clarendon county for exhibition.
General Moise, in part, said:
a "You are aware that the South Caro
for lina Interstate and West-Indian Expo
ng sition Company propose to open at
re Charleston on December first of the
is- present year an Exposition, whereat
it you will have the opportunity of show
n ing the resources of your county.
l- "I have come here to endeavor to
satisfy you that it will be to your inter
est to avail yourselves of this opportu
tet nity. Clarendon county needs devel
din opment as much as any part of the State.
"There is at present no cotton mill
or factory in your county; you have no
e- flour mill; your people devote their en
ve ergies to raising cotton. They board
in at the West; the larger part of the
he bread both of corn and wheat which
' they consume is raised there and not at
ne home; they even buy the major part of
- the corn and hay *hich their animals
he consume at this season of the year and
ad on which their crops of cotton are
"Your pressing need is now for di
er versity of employment for your people.
il- If you had a factory or cotton mill your
. young people of both sexes could earn
their living and acquire skill by work
ea ing in such mill; your old men could
find some employment -here also. In
the course of time they would acquire
,n, skill and their services would become
V. more valuable. You also need more
he capital. How shall you get it? The
ed proposed Exposition presents you the
-e- first chance you have had to fully ad
ad vertise your advantages to the world.
,b What have you to offer? At piesent
,v- you do not know yourselves. There
as may be wealth around you of which you
in have no idea now. Just ,efore me now
g. there is a flowing artesian well whose
.water is as good as can be found any
lt, "Your climate is salubrious and the
at health of your county excellent. Your
lands are productive and will yield
rich rewards to intelligent husbandry.
O- Along the border of the Santee river
go vou have rich areas of land which can
he be reclaimed and which, under culture,
E- would produce crops equal to those
i.g which are made in the valley of the
us5 Nile. How are you to bring these ad
ry vantages to the knowledge of the out
u- side world? The propo~sed Exposition
ne offers you the first chance you have had
ato do so. Will you avail yourself of it ?
'm There is no time to be lost.
- "It is said that fortune knocks once
at the door of every man and- if it be
anot opened to her she departs and-re
eturns no more. She has come to your
Sdoor now. Will you wclcome her and
benefit by her coming? The whole
ad country is prospering. There is abun
he- dant capital seeking investment. Your
i1 very lands offer inducements of which
he you are yourselves unaware. Lands do
> not go backward in value. At a cost
of $100 per acre, with good cultivation,
they would pay an interest of 4 per
e cent. They can be bought now at from
Lu- six to ten dollars per acre. They need
le- advertisement. The Exposition will
gh aiford-the best you could desire.
a "The State has ordered that a build
ay ing be erected for the purpose of giving
by to each county a place in which to show
vy to the world what it can produce and
air the advantages it has to offer to the
ras thrifty. Every county is expected to
F. compete in this exhibition. That coun
J. ty which shows that it can produce
ay, everything necessary for the due main
nd tenance of its people will stand a fair
vy chance to win the prize and induce the
in- hbme seeker to come and cast his fort
unes with you. That farmer who pro
duces everything which his plantation
on consumes and makes cotton only as a
he surplus crop is the more independent.
mIs: If a farmer makes five bales of cotton
at 10 cents per pound he makes more
money than if he makes ten bales ol
ecotton and sells them at five cents per
mpound. He saves the work of planting,
hthe cultivation and the gathering oi
m five acres. If the land is ready for the
m- seed and he plants only half of it in cot
re, ton and lets the-other half make peam
or hay he will be better off in the fal]
rthan if he planted it all in cotton. You
'now spend hafthe year in cutting up
sthe grass out of your fields and the
cother half in buying Western raised
,c hay to feed your farm stock with. it is
en time to stop this.
en"The Exposition will bring the farm
ely ers together. It will show what is be
id- ing done in all the counties and the re
asult must be beneficial to all. You need
h.e to cultivate your minds as well as your
Lt- lands. Your inventive talents must be
ice fostered and encouraged. Your me
ed chanical skill must find a field for ex
tr ploitation. Who can tell what talents
,to may exist amongst your ladies and chil
.he dren? Some can paint, some embroider,
ss some possess the plastic art and some
,nd are ingenious, and patient. To all these
te~r the Exposition opens wide its doors and
*ui- invites them all to exhibit the work o1
ay. their heads and their hands.
k,"In your county there are water pow
ks, ers. These can produce electricity and
rnthat tremendous power can then turr

gia has had two at Atlanta and she pro
poses to have a third next year. If the
two which she has had had not proven
beneficial, she would not have a third.

"zEsop tells the fable of the body and

to feed the body, the legs said that they
would carry it no more. They ceased
to work and the body became weak and

the whole was fast lapsing into decay.
But wiser counsels prevailed at the
prospect of impending death. The
iimbs went back to their duty and
health returned. So will it be with the
State and the counties, if each shall do
its part the whole will prosper. The
health of the Exposition demands the
active co-operation of the counties.
Will you do your part? It is to be
hoped that you will and that success
will attend your efforts."

Yorkville, April 4.-Last evening, at
7 o'clock, a most beautiful wedding cer
emony was performed at the First Pres
byterian church in this place. It was
the marriage of Dr. James Davidson
McDowell, one of our popular young
physicians, and Miss Mattie, a daugh
ter of C. E. Spencer, Esq., and one of
Yorkville's fairest and loveliest daugh
ters. The church was elaborately dec
orated by some of the members of the
"Willing Workers" society, the deco
rations being all white and green. The
visiting relatives were, the Rev. and
Mrs. James McDowell of Sumter, Mrs.
Seabrook of Young's Island, Mrs. E. M.
Richards of Statesville, N. C., Mrs. J.
S. R. Thompson of Spartanburg, .and
Mrs. L. M. Crowell of Bishopville. The
attendants were. Prof. John Douglas of
Davidson College. N. C., best man,
with Miss Claude Moore, maid of honor;
Rev. Davidson Douglas of North Caro
lina, with Miss Anice O'Leary: Dr.
Mack James of Cheraw with Miss Daisy
Hart; C. W. F. -Spencer, Esq., of Rock
Hill. with Miss Mary Crawford, and
Dr. Robert M. Steele with Miss Sallie
McDonald. The ushers were Messrs.
Mason L. Carroll, W. P. Harrison,
George W. Williams and Prof. Starr
Miss Mary E. Schorb presided at the
organ, playing Mendelsohnn's wedding
march as the bridal partyv entered the
church and rendering Lohengrin's wed
ding march as they retired from the
The bride and her attendants were
handsomely gowned in white, carrying
boquets of white carnations and lillies
of the valley.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev, James McDowell, father of the
groom, assisted by the Rev. W. G.
Nevile of this place.
One most pleasingincident of the oc
casion, was the presenc~e of two faithful
colored women, who occupied promi
nent seats of honor. One was the faith
ful nurse of the groom, when he was a
motherless infant. She seemed to be
the happiest and proudest person in the
house, to see "her boy" as she termed
it, so happily married. The other was
Etta McKinney, who has been a faith
ful servant and nurse in the Spencer
family for a good many years. Her
happiness seemed supreme.
Dr-. McDowell and his lovely bride
left last night, by private conveyance,
for Rock Hill, there to take the South
ern train for Columbia and other points
in the State, to visit relatives.
The universal congratulations of this
community go with this young couple,
wishing them a long life of prosperity
and happiness. S.
