Seeing the Sights.
The Editor is at the Mecca of all tho
country?the groat Exposition. Ho Is
here with his best oncumbrance, uu
dorstand, and overy man in tho coun
try should go and do likewise. Come
by the 8. A. L. and embark at Clinton
or Greenwood. Swiftly and safely you
will be set down. The travel is tamo
and thoro are no sights in the land
scape, but you collido with tho world
when you got bore. Plonty of room
nero?olbow room although tho crowd
is masslvo. Stop with Mrs. Lamar .308
Itawson Street. Como to the Exposi
tion; it is in Georgia?Tillman's prom
ised land?Egypt,-Arcadla-all Arcad
ians. Como to the Exposition. There
is no cheat In it; bring the babies, the
boys, the lassies, the d?ar old lady,
grandma. Get away from tho conven
tion, got away from everlasting poli
tics for a day; you won't rogrot it.?
One thing you will learn; yea two
things you will be made well aware of;
first, all the world has not its oyes fixed
on South Carolina: yoa that little
municipality is a mero parish?yea not
a man or woman of us Is noted?Till
man would bo lost. Hero with more
than ten thousand stirring mortals el
bowing you, with the evidences of mans
wisdom and skill and what ho is doing
with tho raw matorial on the earth and
undor the waters aud in tho sky staring
you in tho faco you will take the lesson
^^f your inslgnlficanco individually and
talk loss of your own importance

world of humanity and. the

p|^^l*!^eiily a gtnJfflWtwi beautiful
IWJtory in the concrete?a commentary
on what is being accomplished in the
useful, the beautiful, the wonderful, in
the closing years of tho century. Wo
write while oating?we snatch a mo
ment?we feel a deep intorost in every
thing at homo; especially the twelve
hundred readers of tho Advertiser
and we are not happy away from home.
While aCarolinian of Carolinians,[Lau
rens is the best and tho gamest county.
We wish everybody could come down
here. The grand things that other
people do?the view of tho world's
grand achievements especially in the
fine arts broadens and educates.
Wo havo not time to give details.?
Tho Editor rode in the Hying machine
?his incumbrance likewise?but we
Dunk Adams, Will Leake, Miss Em,
his sister, Dr. Hugh K. Aikon, Miss
Lidie Irby and Will Gambraol of
Greenwood we wore delighted to en
. counter here. We thought them tho
salt of the earth, being from Laurons.
P. S. Atlanta would be a great city
like Chicago or New York but there is
no big river and high bridge to jump
from. This is unlucky, but tho chances
are that thoy will contrive tho river.
Tho Advertiser has encountered only
threo stovo pipe tiles. So you will con
clude he is with tho wool hat crowd.
NOV. 14, 11 P. M.
W? havo oxhaustcu auot-her day at
?'the exhibit and aro ourselves about ex
hausted. It would take volumes to givo
tho details and wo have neither time
nor space. It was Pennsyvania day.
Tho Govornor of that great Stato and
the Stato officers with a grand caval
cade from tho Quaker State, had?a fino
procession and there was speechmak
ing aud all that, but of course no Caro
linian would stop to listen at a spoech
?we have cabbage and corn bread?
Johny constant?at homer Whon tho
ship was in danger and about to go
down, the jack tars concluded to have
prayers?but as no one know the lingo
for such emergencies?they took up a
collection. So in every omergency the
South Carolinian calls for a speech?
but we passed on. Patriotism led us to
the agricultural building where our
little State has a little space. Wo hope
it is not significant, but our fossils aro
decidedly in evidence. Our rice is vory
fine-and the Darlington tobacco exhibit
beautiful and there is much to bo proud
of. Properly handled there sources of
tho Stato aro comparablo with those of
any. Charleston women havo a beau
tiful room in tho Woman's Annox, and
tho portraits of our great men aro
there?not confined to the groat of
Charleston?but the great of tho State,
North, South, East and West, as much
to inspire an Anderson boy as a lad
whose first improssions aro those of the
breakers frothing at Drunken Dick's
,> shoals. The women who havo gotten
up.this exhibit and the othor citizens
of the Stato, notably Darlington pooplo
dosorve groat credit. A South Caro
linian need not bo ashamed. Illinois,
Alabama, New York, Pennsylvania,
and California are rich States and
have handsome buildings here and
they are glad to have us old continen
tal respectables rest and resposo on
their richly upholstorod sedans. Our
Commissioner Koche, was not at his
desk and we were sorry to mice him,
but everything Is beautifully arrangod
in the Carolina department, all due to
his skill and taste and he has aohived a
glory out of tho material sent him. The
Dispensary exhibit is thoro and a young
man to hand you a pamphlet copy of
our dispensary law, but the young fol
low is to this hour innocent how he
was carrying coals to Newcastle when
he modestly handed us that pamphlet.
Gov. Evans' picture is displayed near
by but we gladly note it docs not sur
mount this particular display. Tho
great silver punch bowl willed by Old
Hickory to the bravest Carolina soldier
in the first foreign war is thoro with
the proud record that it is to go to the
last survivor of the Palmetto Reg
ment, as there could be no award to tho
bravest when all were bravo. The old
President must have had in mind "de
ter pulohoriml"?let it be given to the
most beautiful?tho decree in which
cane caused thadestruotjon of Troy and
the ruin of so many princes and
princesses and would do so again don't
you know. There Id also there, tho
sword preeented by the State of South
Carolina to Captain John Simkins for
gallantry in the Mexican war and lent
by Mrs. McGowan Simkins of Edgo-1
field to the ladies for this oxhibit.?
Capt. Simkins, was tho father of our
fellow citizens, Ex-Mayor Lowis W.
Simkins and Mr. Arthur Simkins, and
was killed as a Colonel in the bloody
engagement at Secessionvillo In de
fending the State. The exhibition
looks now liko it would be a success
it is attracting thousands to tho South
and bringing much money along with
the thousands. If you conclude to go
go by the tenth of Decomber before tho
wintor has got a fair hold. Everything
is reasonablo enough?you can do tho
thing in three days on about $15.00?
but you can't bring homo tho beautiful
and costly things tbat aro there, but
may bring homo an idoa of?"there aro
more things in heaven and oarth, Ho
ratio, than aro droampt of in your phil
osophy." Don't go alone, go in pairs or
triplets; if moro than three, somo will
get lost for sure. We were on tho
grounds and in tho city for two days,
and nights for that mattor, must havo on
countored thirty or forty thousand peo
ple and did not sco a drunkon man, nor
hear a loud or unseemly word uttered
and saw no occasion for a policeman.
And we are trying to introduce the dis
pensary into Georgia and tho rest of
tho world. We woro proud to note
that Laurons, In tho famous Harris
Llthia water, has a place in this magic
picturo of tho world's oxhibit of its
skill und treasures.
Tho oloction for Mayor and Alder
men of Charleston occurs in December
A primary has been held by tho De
mocracy and J. Adger Smyth has been
nominated over Mr. Bryan and Mr.
Huger. Mr. Hugcr is the candidate of
tho old Know Nothing party and will
run as an Indopondont and will bo sup
ported by tho Reform organization of
the city. Gov. Evans, tho product of
Senator Tillman, will appoint all tho
managers and commissioners of elec

Evans and his organs who ttnito with
old Nick In quoting Scripture for their

Gov. Evans has been pluming himself
and strutting as an "organized" Dem

Pope and leaving him to pot-liquor and
