Irby's Unsheathed Sword.
Those who have watched clo=elY the
deme-nor of Senaiors Tillman and
Irby and read what each had to say in
the newspapers for te past year, will
not be sur4rised at the tone of Senatot
Irbv's interview. The debate on the
Sa'uda Conty matter brought. out the
re-. feeling of our two Sniators to'
wards eaci other, and r wa- too plain
th-it they must sooner or l-ter part

Irby has done a great deal 1,r Till
n%u, and did it when :Tillman most
needed friends, b-it, for some reason,
Tillman wants to get rid (f the junior
Senator. Possibly it i< becaue he
thinks that an alliance with Governor
Evans, who will in all probabi i!y op
pose Irby for tha Senate, would make
a much stronger combina:ion.
In onr judgrent, however, Irby hai
taken the wrong position to' "down"
Tillman when he attacks th. suffrage
plan of Tillman's eom:nitlee. The
people themselves hwte clamored for
a settlement of this question, and it
is impossible to settle it, even tempo

AN INTERESTING LETTER FR~OM
MAr. Editur: Thinking some of our
noble old Confeder ates of South Caro
lina will be intereste-1, we beg leave
to give you a little descripiion of the
"Reunion of the Conafederates" which
took place atiFairfax Court House on
the second day of this mouth. Quite
a number of parties went from this
section of the county, one of which
went from Ashland Farm. The Court
House is about t welve miles from here
so we commenced our journey shortly
after.breakfast and found onrselves at
the end of it abont elev'en o'clock.
When we arrived at the Court IIouse
y-ard (it- was here the rtunion took
place) we found quite ana assemblage
-. of people and when we -aw such a
number of Confederates wearing their
-badges, we wete delighted that we
had one in our party. About twelve
* the crowd had pretty well gathered.
Sjon the speaking commenced.
First let us mention the fact that there
was a nice pleform erceted. The
* idraperies back of it were very pretty.
Every where conld be seen the national
colors, whilst "The Cotngnered Banner"
occupied a conspicuous plac on the
'The first seaker introduced was thr
lIon. Walter Moore, a protmmett
law:- er of the place and ex-State Sena
tor. He spoke~ of the bravety of the
Confo,leiates, of their struggles dating
the war &c. Then he went on to
speak of things especially connect. d
with this county etc. He was much
apauded, and afler he retird, the
.ban i struck up "Bonnie Blue Flag."
Robert E. Lee, grandson of the
late General Lee, was tbe next man on
the statnd. He is a young man of
noble appearance and a graceftv ad
dres:. Ue began by saying, how
gtratifying it is to see such a large
crowd on tbis occasion. HIe mentioned
several battles which were gained by
our men, sas ing what cause they had
to be elated at the begininga of-t' e
war and how Iheir hopez were shat
:ered. But he reminded us t!.at
though we were defeated, we have
reasonls to feel p-roand of trae bravery
of our men etc. He spoke to') of thce
pleasure it affords the few remaining~
Confederates of 'the Marr Camp :o
meet in this pleasant fashion every
year. ~He mentioned the fortitude
'with which the Souther wotnen bo'e
their aflictions, and went on to speak
of our women of the prer nt day, comn
ptimentingf&them upon their modesty
and sensibility in not being lhke some
of the females of ce.itaina prtionas of
the United States. Hie evid-t y h is
great veneration for the fair a'd
weaker sex, when he deplore.i thc
fact, that woman who is the suparior
of matn should try to beeonie his i.(ala
by adopting masculine eu-tom;s, and
worst of all, dress.
Mr. Tyer (t vetern) was the last
speaker, and he was also much ap
piauded. It was then announced that
the speaking was over, as it was time
for churet. Many people were disap
pointed at the non-appearance of
Hampton, Bradley, Johnston and Hon.
Conrad, which men had special invi
tations to grace the occasion by be:ng
Our pzr. y enjoyed a nice collation
under the tree;, and as our apetite
waW:sharpened by our ride, wc did
ample justice to the repa.t. After
finishing esting we went in the Court
Uouse to tea iecC,rd Offl,e, where we
had the privilege of seeing the origi.
nal will of Washing:on. It i, very
much dilapidated on account of havin;2
been handled a gre.it deal, conse
quently it has been put in a glass case,
and .hough you caunot take thie will
in your bands, you can sce the writing
very distinctly. Of course it is yellow
with age, but under the circumstances
it is very well preserved. We a!so
saw the will of George Mason, which
at any other time would have inspired
great reverence, but of course we
were more impressed by that of the
"Father of ur Country."
We saw quite a curiosity iu a boook
of court records, the writing of which
dated as early as 17-12. These docu
ments (as well at some others in the
office) are very valuable, and a fire
proof building which is now iu course
of e.ection, will be their repository
some time in the near future. After
our visit to the Court House we went
to the jail, then we spent the rest ot
the evening in walking around the
town. About four o'c!ock we sttrted
for home, and upon reaching it we
were pretty well tired out, but we
did not grumble for we felt fully re
paid for the trip.
-Since the reunion we p,id a ;-Cy
delightful visit to Mt. Vernon, going
from Alexandria by the elec-rie car.
The ride was charming and we saw
some lovely scencry. Un the way we
pasied W#l inton, which was the
home of Washiu:on's private Seere
tory, Tobias Lears. Alter a ride of
thirty m;nutes we arrived at the gates
of Washington's grand old home.
We spent two or three hours there,
during wbich time we on"y reetd a
0.arter of an hour. The dcer park
vas ir-tere:ting, also the old garden.
.he most remarkable :hing in tile
arden is the boxwood, which is said
to have been planted one hundred :ud
ifty years ag). Prominent among the
trees is a large magnolia which was
pianted by the haud of Wasbington.
The conservatories are very fine, beirg
titled with exotics of every descriptio:i.
The gronuds are in perfect order, and
everything is beautifally kept. We
visited the tomb of Washington, and
upoe seeing it we were filled with
awe, which graduuvly passed away
and gave us good tim3 to take ill
everything connectedN with it, so we
left it with an impression of it on our
mind, so that we can disti:.ctly s.e it
iomagination. After we walked over
the grounds we visited the mansion.
The most interesting rooms are Wash
ington's, Lafayette's, t,e banquet haIl
and the music reom. Tre things in
Washington's chlalnber are surely
sufficient to inspir e reverenc3 in the
heart of the patriot-the bed on which
he died, the chair on which he sat, a
trunk of his and the old fa-hioned
bareau are certainly articles of great
value as well as curiosity. Among
the things particularly noticeable in
the musie'room are a harpsichord a'uip
stool of Nellie Custis', a flute of Gen.
Wahington's and an .old table on
which Lafayette played whist. In the
corner of this room is a case full of
enriosities, containing a poir of glasscs
which belonged to the Genera!, and a
silver heel off of a shoe of Martha
Wshington, besides many other litt le
hin-es, too numerous to mention. In
the dali or entry are several jthings of
vahlt in the shape of a dIregsing case
nad three swords of WaThington. Ill
a glass case hanging againist th.e wall
is the original key of the Bastile
Prison which was presented by -Lifa
vette te his best fiend after the det
inoishment of that prison. The South
Carolina room is very handsome, and
many boast of a treasar-e in ani old
sideboard and a pair of andirons wvhichl
bespeak of days tL at are no m-i-e.
The car-pet and curtains of this r-oom
are very handsome; as band-ome es
any in the house. We canid sp:eak ot
the libr-ary, the banqueting hall and
several others but our timne nxo- you
space will not permit this.
We will end by savingt that we
spent a mnost delightful time at this
grand old place, and we wet-c treated
with every defrence by the officials
who seemed to take gr-eat pleasmn e iln
answe: jng any~ que.tions which the
visitors h.Lppenled to, a-k. We will
leave it to some future visitor- of Mt.
Veraton to tell of the thinlgs whbich we
have neglected to speak of, and he or
he will probably <t1) ihem nre justice

Health Restored Headache
vwmCured By Dr. Miles'-Nervine
SOWADAYS when competition is so sharp and keen,. when -the
struggle for wealth, position, or a bare living is so severe, when
it takes so mu6h more effort;' so much'more brain power to ac
-comnplish the sameresult than it did a few short years ago, men
and women are so liable to overWvork thieinselves. Before they are aware of
it they become .-rvous, sleepless, exhausted and irritable. They are tired,
languid, nerveles. atnd physically are going down-hill at a rapid rate.
Dr. Miles'' Nervine Restores,-brings~ back health.-CUES.-jUSt such
people. The RN.I. V. McCarty, pastor of the First United Brethren church
of Wabash, Ind., writes Nov. 19, 1894:
"I was very healthy until seven years ago, thought I could stand anything;
but, from overwork and exposure, I was stricken down with brain fever and
narrowly escaped death. Singe that time I have suffered more than ever.
"It began with neuralgia and a continuous, terrible pain in- the left side;
at times I was dizzy and had the severest of headaches. My digestioa was
very bad and I had a great deai of stomach trouble, and suffered untold agony.
I was constipated nearly all of the time. I was thin in flesh and so muchi re
duced in nerve force that I had little life and no ambition.
"Six weeks ago I began taking Dr. Miles' remedies and have taken' nearly
two bottles of the Restorative Nervine and three boxes of the. ierva and
Liver Fills. The result is truly marvelou's. I feel 11ka a boy ag.;:h. I L-tva
gained eighteen pounds and have more strength and nerve force t'an I have
had at any time in the past seven years.
"Last evening at the close of service,. I publicly stated to the large audi
ence the facts of. the marvelous benefits that I had received- from your rme
dies, how they had given me strength and hope and vitality to better go on
with the work of the Master. May the Dear Master abundantly bless you."
,Tanuary 30, 1895, he again writes:
'Prior to last October, when I began the use of your valuable remedies,
I was almost an entire mental and physical wreck, but now, thanks to Dr.
Miles for his Restorative Nervine and Nerve and Liver Pills, I am a healthy
and exceedingly happy man.- Before I began the use of your medicines I very
seriously contemplated resigning my position as pastor of the First U. B.
church of this city, but now with restored health I can remain, to the great
joy of my people
"Alter two months revival work, two services each day, I am still strong1
and well. May the dear Master of life abundantly bless you."
