Please announce that thero will
be a public meeting hold at Peters
Crook, April 28th, at 2 p. in., in
accordanco with instructions of
the President of the National F.
A. & I. U., it being a memorial sor
vice hold in honor of our late Pro
eideit, Col. L. 19. Polk. The fol
lowing speakors havo boon invited:
lion. W'. T. O'Doll, Houn. C. H.
Cairpontor, and Hon. J. M. Whit

to attond. W. R. JoNEs,
Soc. Peters Crook F. A.
Jhudgo Brewer of the Supromo
Court, is much givon to saying
quaint and humorous things in his
aftor-dinnor speeches. Tho othor
ovoning at Washingten, in addross
ing a club, he took occasion to op
poso woman's suffrage as a remedy
for tho abuses in municipal gov
ornmont. He said it meant giving
ovory wife two votes instead of ono
as at present; for, though his ju
risdiction as a member of tho Su
promo Court extended from ocean
to ocoan, and gulf to the lakes, yet
it sometimes failed to take in tho
Browor household. Now, if women
aro so masterful, is not all this a
good roason for giving thon the
suffrage?
Time Darkey avid his Check.
"Ono of the incidents of the boom
at Chattanooga, which happened
to fall under my immediate obsor
vation, interested me greatly," sa id
a Toninossoonn. "A negro thoro
had come into the ownership of a
small pioco of real estate worth,
whein ho got it., about $100. Dur
ing tho boom this property becamo
very desirable, and could probably
have )001n bought for a few hun
dred dollars had the would-bo pur
chaser not scarod the darkey by
offering him several thousand, but
a deal was finally closed for $10,
000, and tho nogro went to the
hank with a check to got the money.
t "How do you want it? asked the
cashier.
"Gib it to me in silber."
Tho cashier began to pilo up the
sacks of silver and the negro's cyos
grow bigger and bigger. Finally
he could stand it no longer.
"Stop, boss," he said, "gib me a
diollahi and a half and keop do res'
for me1."
From Ihe Ealey Democrat of April 20th,
Tle protractod meetng is still

church. Tihe pastor, Rev. Hutson,
has beeon assisted this week by the
Rev. Dunlap, of Piedmont. Ow
ing to the busy season, we suppose
the attention has been small.
Messrs. Reuben F1olger, Robert
La thorm and George Hendricks left
Easly on Monday last, bound for
Lexington, Ky., whore they expect
to enter a business college. We
wvishu them much success.
The Alliance is on a boom all
over the State, and the most on
couraging reports reach us. Now
members are new being enrolled
b)y the hundred and disbanded
lodgos reorganized.
It is reported that Mr. W. HI.
Addington is building a house and
will shortly start in operation a
government distillery at the old1
Berry mill lplace, in the "Sugar
Town" neighborhood, six miles
east ofEasley. Mr. Lowell K(. Koel
Icy, it is said, will be the store
keeper and guagor.
An election for Intendant and
four Wardens for tho town of Eas

There wore only 54 votes polled.
A ll the above named WVardens
were re-elected except Mr. J. M.
Barr. Having served last year,
thet 1p001)1 have been so well satis
