In the nieantituo A. E. Gonzales had

AUiuucu day at tho Exposition aud
Preside.!4 Livingston, of the Georgia Al
liance, was liere ahd made an address to
Bcveral huudred Ucorgla and Carolina
larmevs this afternoon in Music Hall.
He was introduced by tho llou Martin
Mr. Livingston began by explaining
the principles ol tho Alliance und the
meaning of the sub-treasury bill.'as he
believed tl at mnay in his audience, uot
being members of the Order, did uot
know clearly what the purposes of the
Alliance wen:, llo was very earnest in
ins talk und laid great stress on every
word ho ultircd. Ho said he had hoard
It rumored that the Alliance did not have
enough money to pay tho delegates who
attended the Natioual Convention in In
dianapolis last week. In beginning he
said ho would nronouuee Ute report un
true. He said i hat the purposes of the
Order were fixed and definite and farm
ers were btnt on having tho financial
system changed. He knew thero was
stroug opposition to tho Alliance, but its
members did not mind that; in fact rather
like it, for by discussion of questions
formers would be educated and would bo
able to linully e*riko on some plan that
would glvo them relict".
llo said that tho sub-treasury bill was
tho only schema that had yet beon found
that could furnish improvement, and if
any better plan could be suggested die
farmors were ready and willing to accept
it. The only hindrance. te the Order,
the Colonel Haid, was from within and
not from without their ranks. He em
phatically said that this country is iu a
dcprcB.uul condition, uad thut merchants,
bankers and cotton men wero trembling
in their boola simply on account of the
uncertainty of the financial condition.
He said what furniers demanded wus
financial rebel" and tax relief, aud when
they ?et those two things they will have
plenty ami live happily.
In v>ubsu?ntiul'.on at bis charge of tho
uncertainty' of iinuuciul alfairs, ho re
turn ked that l'radstreot rcportod that
92 per cent, of business was douo on
time. Lack ot" coufidenco is tho cause
of this uncertainty, ho said, und ho
proved it by saying that money could be
borrowed in NewYork nt a low interest
subject to call, .lu.(. not on time. As te>

Col. Livingston said they wero not un
democratic or impraedeabr, as some
writers think. liefcrr -g to Federal
taxes the speaker said lhatiu 1880thorc
was forty-three billion dollars of busi
ness done in this country, and out ot
that amount oaly .seventeen and a half
billions was taxed.
Mr Livingstou said that farmers wero
sufferers by ?11 taxes not being put?,
llo said there is a cry that thero is over
production of cotton, but it is not so.
Nothing is overproduced except fools'
prtd rascals, that Divine Frovidoece,
who rules over tho uuivci se, nevor wasted
ilia gilts. He .-aid farmers were selling
cotton now at %less than it cost them to
make it, and it was because of tho poor
financial banking system and becauso
speculators arc holding cotton. In his
experience cotton always brought tho
highest prices when currency reached
the highest poiut. Oue great trouble
was, ho said, that 91 percent, of tho
wealth of this country was controlled by
llvo Eastern States outside of whore tha
crops of this country are grown. lie
advised farmers this year to first make
crops of tho necessaries of life needed at
homo, and thcu'afterwards to plant cot
Col. Livingston referred to the talk
! that tho slrensth of tha Alliance was
wcaloniug and that the Order weuld
soon be dissolved. In answer to that
ho said that tho wish was father to the
thought, for the Alliance was stronger
now thrfu over before and that it was
eoing to tenaciously hold together and
accomplish its object, though it will take
years to do it. He said ho wanted East

Columbia, S. C., Nov. 22.?No eveut
that in - occurred in Columbia for years
has created huc-i universal hits been
more talked ? i, than the peculiarly sad
death of little Maud, one of the pretty,
bright and generally petted twin daugh
ters of the Rev. Dr. and Mrs. W. C.
Lindsay. Yesterday The State made
the announcement of her having died
I shortly after being given a dose of
medicine. Although the facts were
I then known they were suppressed at
the earnest request of intimate friends
of the family who desired an in vest if a
As stated, the little girl was found
dead by ner parents on returning from
i ehurch., Although Drs. Taller and Hei
I nitsh were quickly on the scene they
could do nothing. Tho death of their
; child completely crushed the parents.
Yesterday it was developed that Dr.
Lindsay, for fear the child would be
sick, wentto one of the drug stores and
called for three qulnlno powders of
i three grains oach. They were put up
by the druggist in charge, and one was
given to iho little girl.
1 On Friday night Dr. Talley made an
examination of one of these pewdera.
Yesterday morning he applied the reg
ular test aud found them to be mor
phine. I t made the little one sleep aud
she could hardly have sulfered rauch
pain. A curious fact Is that Dr. Lind
say, when he catno dowu street, had
almost :.tupped at another drug store,
but seeing a strange clerk there he went
on so as to avoid any possibility of the
very thing which afterwards occurred.
Tho coroner yesterday morning em
paneled a jury of inquest, which viewed
the remains yesterday alternoun and
tho remains were interred in tho Bap
tist Ctiurcn yard.
What makes the case sadder than all
else is the terrible grief of tho young
druggist who made tho mistake, lie is
considered by all physicians one of the
most accomplished an l reliable drug
gist In the city. He had felt relieved
on the night of the Killing when Dr.
Tal ley tola him it was not morphine as
suspected. When the horrible truth
came out yesterday morning he at once
tendered his resignation and was al
most crazed. Tho reaction was almost
too much for him. Ho had never before
made a mistake of any kind. When
The State representative called on him
last evening he fouud him iu a dark
room sit ? iug all alone enduring his ter
riblo sufferings. It was a sight at sad
as the death of the little one. The
voting man could not account for the
mistake. He said he hud always kept
the two drugs associated In his mind m
order to prevent a mistake, and while
thinking of this on this occtssiuu he
must have picked up the wrong bottle.
The bottles were dissimilar and on dif
ferent sides of the stands, aud the mor
phine bore the poison label.
He said he was very sorry he could
not change positions with tho dead
child. What nearly killed him, he sold,
was the knowedge that ho could do
nothing to undo what, he had done,
when he would bo only too glad to give
his own life to do so.? Tho State.
The Record says that Dr. Rratton, the
young man who made the mistake, cer
tainly has tho deepest sympathy of
everybody In Columbia, and his many
friends .-ire doing all they can to cheer
him up in this terrible ordeal. One of
tho kindest aud most Christianlike acts
was done on the part of Dr. Lindsay
yesterday, who sent a committee of his
congregation to Dr. Rratton to lender
to him thoDoctoi's heartfelt sympathy.

It is built on conect mechanical prin

chine gathers more rapidly than can be
done by hand; more trash is, of course,
mixed with the cotton in this way, but
not enough that gins will not clear it.
It also loaves the leaves and green bolls
unharmed, so the greater part of the
problem has beou solved.
Persona competent to judge its
merits, including tho superintendent of
tho Georgia experimental State farm
and a former commissioner of agricul
ture of that State, as well us proiiiluent
planter,, pronounce It a success and
believe that a considerable portion of
next year's crop will be picked by it.
I The following account of its con
struction and operation will bo of in
It consists of a series of small brass
cylinders about three inches in diame
ter, sot parallel in a frame, one above
the other, and which operate by turn
ing with great rapidity on both sides of
the cotton atalk, tho motion to tho cyl
inders being given by the wheels of the
machine which run in tho middle of
the cotton rows, causing tho machine
to straddle the row of cotton which is
to bo operated on. As ono side of the
brass cylinders la presented to tho cot
ton a great number of sharppointed
needlellko spikes present themselves
through holes perforated In the cylin
der, which gather the cotton, and as
the cylinders turn over to the opposite
side the needles are drawn in, which
turns the cotton looso and causes It to
drop in boxes on both sides of the ma
chine. This In and out motion of the
neodles. which seizes tho cotton from
the stalk when presented to It and then
drops It in tho boxes when reversed, is
secured by a simple but ingonlous con
tri vanco inside the cylinder which gives
the proper motion to the needles. The
numbot' of cylinders depends upon the
quantity of cotton open on tho stalk;
for the cylinders can oo Inserted in the
frame at pleasure as needed from two
to two dozen according to tho height
of the machine or tho size of cotton, all
of them having tho snme motion. If
the bottom crop Is to be gathered, of
course only a few cylinders are inserted
to reach tho cotton open. If It is open
all over the stalk enough cylinders are
usod to cover all of the stalk. The
machine Is a simple one, having only
three important motions, the small re
volving brass cylinder on both sides of
the cotton stalk, the motion to which is
given by tho wheels running in the
middles on both sides of the cotton,
next the running out of the needles
from tho cylinders which grasp the cot
ton as t,hey come In centact with it,
and then the withdrawal of the needles
which turns the cotton loose and de
posits it in the boxes as that side of the
cylinders approach them.?Columbia

And a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
1 not good. Simple, Beautiful, Gcod? these
words mean much, but to see "The Rochester"
will impress the truth more forcibly. All rectal,
rough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,
it is absolutely safe and unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
of old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light,
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
