OHRIST AS CHIMES.
A SUNNY CHRISTMAS.
To give Bomo ono a little gift,
AU wrapped around with Christina*love
This frosty Ohristukfl season,
Tied with a Btring of smiles above,
With lots of wishes, good and gay,
In every corner tocked away,
Will bring you just tho sunniest day
I wonder what's tho reason!
Call For Public Meeting.
In accordance with instructiona
and request from tho Cotton Grow
ers Convention held in Columbia
on Dec 8th, we the undersigned
who were delegates tc same invite
and request all the cotton growers
of the county irrespective of any
other avocation to assemble in mass
meeting in the court house/on Tues
day Dec 27th, at ll o'clock for the
purpose of effecting a compact or
ganization to secure better prices
for the remainder of tho present
cotton crop, and to take such meas
ures as seem best to obtain a uniform
md equitable prico for tho future
crops. A large attendance is ur
gently requested. Standing alone in
our individual capacity when those
who have not our interest at heart
are fully organized means financial
uin, and prostration to all business
terests such ns we saw in the
and are; Jhow staring irs in
A FUNNY BREADS,
[ had a funny dr?'ni last night.
As strange as strange could bo
I dreamed that i was Santa Glaus,
Vnd Santa Clans' was me.
And when I carno to Santa's houso,
(Where we livo now, you know)
I took out near a hundred things
And laid them in a row;
.V bioycle with bcvcl?g<'?r,
?V gun that shoots real bhot;
V pair of skates, a new canoe,
Were tome things that I brought. t ?
And theo I said, "For fear I ve missed
A Little thing or two.
I'll Icavo this pockotbook well filled, . :
That's just what I will do."
Cf course it only was a droam,
*iut still 1 think t'would be
lust great if I was Santa Claus
And Santa Claus was me.
It Came Upon tho Midnight Olear
Et came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old.
Fi om angles bonding near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold;
. Pooca on tho earth, good will to men, .
From heaven's all glorious King-"
Tho world in. solomn stillness lay
To hoar the angels sing.
Still through the cloven ?kies thoy oome
With' peaceful wings unfurled:
And still their heavenly music floats
Cor all the weary world;#
Jig s*d and lowly plain?
Tho Christmas Delineator^
The December Delineator, with
its message of good oheer andi
helpfulness, will bo welcomed io
every homo. Tho faahiou pages
are unusually attractive, illustr?t-1
ing and describing the very latest
modes in a way to make their con
struction during the busy festive
season a pleasure instead of a task,
and the literary and pictorial fea
tures are of rare excellence. AI
selection of love songs from the
Wagner operas, renderod into!
English by Riohard de Galliennel
and beautiful illustrations in col
ors by J. C. Loyendeckor, occupies
a prominent placo, and a chapter
in the composers' series,, relating
the romance of Wagner and Co.
Hiter, is an interesting suppliment
to the lyrics. A very clever pa
per entitled "The court circles of
the republic," describes 'some
unique phases of Washington so
cial life is from an ti i) nam J d con
tributor, who is said to write from
the inner circles of society. Theie
are short stories from the pens of
F. Hopkinson Smith, Robert
Grant, Alice Brown. Mary Stew
art Cutting, and Elmore Elliott
Peake, and such interesting wriM
era Julia Magruder, L. Franl
Baum and Grace McGowan Cook,
hold the attention of children.
Many Christmas suggestions

the request of Mr. A. Huff, agent
the Virginia & Carolina Chemical
(Jo., to make a test against PERUVIAN
GUANO with his Fertilizer, he made me
a present ol two sacks of 8 4-4 ot the
V. & (J. Co.. goods to make the tct
with. The trial was made on land se
lected by Mr. Huh* himsell and Mr. Ir-I
vine, my Superintendent. Ten rovsl
were planted, with equal amounts oil
each lertilizer, at the rate ol 400 lbs perl
acre, with the iollowing results :
Peruvian Guano made 191 lbs,
Mr. Huff's 8 4-4 made 153 lbs,
A dillerence ot 38 lbs on ten rows.
I hereby certily the above statement is|
correct. (Signed) W. H. Dial.
I hereby certity the above tacts and fig
ures are correct
T. J. Irvine, Superintcndcnt|
Witness, W. G. Watts.
At this rate the difference on one acre|
would have been 342 lbs of seed cotton,
or 114 pound ot lint cotton.
Now figure 114 lbs at 8 cents and you|
have $9 12 per acre in
FAVOR OF PERUVIAN GUANO
The Peruvian Guano used in above
test only analyzed 2 87 per cent A monia
2.67 per cent ol potash and io per cent
Phosphoric Acid, which was the lowest |
grade sold last year.
I am now offering a limited quantity |
ot Guano containing over
8 Per Cent ot Ammonia
as well 8 per cent ot, Phos. Acid and I
over 2 per cent ol Potash, which I be?
lieve to be the finest cotton and corn
fertilizer that can be had today.
As there is only a limited quantity of |
this Cargo remaining unsold it will be
necessary tor me to take your orders at
once, and I trust that all my Iriends will
decide to try at least A KEW TONS OF
PERUVIAN GUANO THIS YEAR.

AT THE OLD STAND
Makes poor horses and mules fat without bloating. It
does this by first thoroughly cleansing the system of
all impurities, allowing perfect assimilation of food,
thereby creating solid muscle and fat.
Horses and mules improve in appecite and spirits
after the first few closes, the hair sheds, and the new
coat is always sleek and glossy.
Ashcraft's Condition Powders are packed in doses,
without "filler," and good for horses and mules only.
It is a most powerful tonic and appetizer, being the
formula; of a practical veterinarian of over a quarter of a century's
experience. It is easily the foremost remedy in its class on the
American market to-day. Price 25 cents package.
