P. R. CONNOR,
Aug. 15, 93.-3mo. Dentist.
A disastrous storm struck Now
York and Brooklyn on the night of
the 23rd lost., causing loss of lifo
and considerable damage to prop
A Country man at the Fair.
Were It In my power I would add
another degree of comparison to
adjectives before attempting to
toll the Advkbti8KK's readers any
thing about this town and its show.
Everything here is immense ex
cept prices, and the latter strike
me as wonderfully low. One can
come here and live frugally on
as little as he can get board at at
a decent hotel in South Carolina.
By "frugally" I mean that the so
Journer must content himself with
two square meals and a lunch per
day and a comfortable room shared
with a friend, freo baths and good
attention included. All this may
bo had at from two to two and a
half dollars a day.
Our party arrived Saturday P. M.
after being on the road forty-eight
hours. We were delayed at Aslie
vllle, Knoxville and in a patch of
woods some where down in Ken
lucky. The gang enjoyed the trip
though and all boys and girls too
wore in elegant trim when they
struck the town.
It is out of the question for one
to write a sensible lottor after a
day's work doing the fair. My
advice to my friends is that they
come up hero if they can, but for a
couple of weeks before leaving
homo they should "go into train
ing." They should habituate them
selves to walking fifteen or twenty
miles every morning for a while
and then they can hope to prome
nade through the interminable
aisles of a . building which covers
as much ground as a mule can cul
tivate without becoming agoniz
ingly tired. Those who have three
months to see the fair in may un
dertake it leisurely but the unplu
tocratic citizen to whom time is
cash must go in a gallop if he
wishes to get a blrd's-oyo view of
the exhibits within a fortnight.
The city of Chicago is decidedly
handsome. There is n o t Ii i n g
crowded about it except the cable
cars and ono can forgivo them,
they are so accommodating and
I think that if one of the famous
tall buildings here should topple
over some of the bricks would be
liable to fall on the opposite side
of Lake Michigan.
I have not had the pleasure of
soelng a mule since my arrival.
Every now and then one has a flit
ting glance at a darkey, but not
Thero is no crowd in attendance
at the fair grounds, but there are
swarms and herds and droves,
myriads, millions, armies and hosts
of folks. Room is too plentiful
though for a crowd to congregate.
I spent to-day in the Agricultu
ral, and Manufacturers and Libe
ral Arts buildings. The most strik
ing thing I saw w?8 the evMVit of
the "Royal Porcelain Works of
Annual Stock Show.
Pursuant to a call tho Graycourt citi
izens and others mot this P. M., 21st
inst., to consider the holding of their an
nual Stock Show.. Dr. J. Ii. Culbertson
was elected President, Dr. A. J. Christo
pher Vice-President, and Rev. J. M.
A'largo crowd was present, and after
sonic discussion unanimously decided to
hold their third annual Stock Show at
Graycourt on tho 22d of September, 1893.
Thero was considerable enthusiasm and
an expressed determination to make
tliis the most successful of any yet hold.
This will bo done, for the desiro is not
only to make it a credit to Graycourt,
but to the County.
Thero aro many fine colts, last year's
and this year's, from Mr. J. P. Gray's
famous horse "Chance To Be," which
will bo on exhibit. Some of these are
especially fine. There is every promise
that the exhibit in each department will
bo largely increased and well selected
this year. "We urge everybody, without
respect to person or locality, to bring ev
erything they can for any or all the de
partments. Everything will be done by
tho Directors of tho Association to make
tho day profitable and pleasant to the
public generally, to which a cordial invi
tation is extended.
The President appointed tho following
committee to solicit exhibits.
Dr. A. J. Christopher, Chairman, W.
C. Colomnn, John M. Gray, R. P. Mi

Tho Facetious Young1 Man
Ho was a very facetious young
man, and ho was showing a bright
young woman, upon whom his af
fections woro lavishing themselves,
through a chair-factory that was
the principal and most intorosting
industry of tho town. The courte

In South Carolina tbo average
man Is Insulted and wants to il
lustrate his manhood and fight
somebody who challenges his title
to be called a democrat. "They
manage things hotter in France/'
and so they do in Georgia. This
pugilistic tendency certainly im
plies a compliment to the old party,
orgauized by tho grandfathers of
some of us. Now and thon you

who was a furious whig or had hud
kin close to tho republican)} who
wants to commit murder or suicido
If his title to bo called a democrat
is called in question. Ask him to
define a democrat, or give tho
creed of the party past or present
and he is as apt upon it as he would
be upon tho philosophy of Plato or
(ho tenets of Zeno. But he wants
to fight; in South Carolina, his
leaders have gobbled up tho naino
and title; as it were, havo ?'sorter"
squatted upon democratic territory,
seized upon the offices and the or
ganization and find it convenient
and profitable to swing to thenamo
because Cleveland is President and
has patronage by that namo. Thus
in Marcli last wo beheld tho hu
miliating spectacle of a South Car
olina Senator going before a cabi
net officer and debating for hours
that ho was a South Carolina dem
ocrat; he was the organized dem
ocracy; ho and his friends wero
the owners of that well because
(hoy had possession. At the same
timo he and his party had gono
into oil ico upon the plea that South
Carolina had never boon demo
cratic. The men in Congress from
this State hold no views in com
mon with the Democratic party in
tho United States. There aro ex
ceptions but thoy provo tho rule.
It is so with many out of Congross,
notably in the legislature of South
Carolina. Probably there aro not
fifty men in the legislature of South
Carolina who would not join a
lynching party to hang Secretary
Carlisle or President Cloveland in
effigy as wearing tho apparel of
angels to servo his majesty tho
Devil In. It is a curious spectaclo
and one woli calculated to make
the angels weep or laugh? Whew!

is honest enough to stand with, by
and for tho platform enacted by
the party at Chicago in 1892; so do

jority of democrats in South Caro
lina; tho troublo is that they have
been beguiled by false leaders,
humbugs, and demagogues, calling
themselves democrats, who uro
anything else and who aro alll
things for tho spoils of office.
It needs that tho chair should bo
separated from tho wheat; It needs
that the genuine should bo sepa
rated from tho counterfeit.
Tho democrats of (his Stato
should hold a convention early in
tho next year, formulate a plat
form embodying tho principles of
democracy upon (ho live questions
of lo-day; separate themselves
from the Tom Watsons, and all
others of that ilk and fight for
representation in tho national or

is the idea. Thero be timid and
cowardly souls with palo faces, and
bloodless chocks who aro apt to
cry out about the danger from tho
nogro and appealing to the negro.
There need bo no alarm on this
score, Tho appeal to tho negro
will come from tho Tom Watson
gang and (hat Ilk. At any rate it
is not decent, reputable or honest
to be counted in (he "organized

I am not suro but ho was more than

When the white man of tho South

The variety of food products for

county fair ono man brought in
ono hundred different articles all
of thorn grown on ono farm. I am
certain that as many can bo pro

I have seen the singlo mulo jig
goring along with tho twister, or
little shovel-plow two or three
iuches deep in tho soil, und was
told that this was the best mode of
working tho land. I simply do not

Tho Messenger having received sev
eral requests for information as to rates
and routes to tho World's Fair, sent a
representative to tho ofiioo of the Gen
eral Passenger Agent of tho Atlantic*
Coast lino with instructions to post him
self thoroughly on tho matter. In an
swer to tho inquiry as to tho route via
which tickets are Bold, ho said :
"The Atlantic Coast Line is selling

those limited to November 15th, although

the Virginia Mountain and Spring lie
