At Home and Abroad.
: Tho attention of the Western world
is centered on Southern Africa, where
our British eousiu?' aro measuring
Bwords with the Boors. Both parties
havo sulTercd greatly and r.s yet no
doci8ivo engagement has happened.?
Tho British have suflored most, the
slight advantage being with tho
Boors. When the wars aro on in Eu
rope, as a rulo, the educated, the rich
and leading young men, the emperor,
the King, their sons and t' eir cousins
are at tho "forefront" of the tight. It

wo are not to expect the country to be
much henelittcd by legislation. Ar
ranging governments for the Philip

qulsitions, will occupy tho attention
of the dominant republican party. Tho
democrats will obstruct tho fight to

The first congressional district, be
cause it includes most of tho South
Carolina &eahoard, the state's largest
city and all her ports, is the most im
portant district of the seven. It is ol
tho utmost consequence, not only
?o the dist rict but to all the people ol
the state, that it be represented by an
able and practical man of affairs Who
will command inlluence in congress
and take high position there. Who re
presents the first district is a matter
more nearly alTecting the fourth dis
trict than who represents tho fifth,
third or any other district, becauso
the proper development of the whole
interior hangs largely upon the de
velopment of our water facilities. For
that reason THE ADVERTISER has no
hesitancy in expressing its sentiments
as to tho approaching election in tho
Mr. Joseph W. Barnwell, the pres
ent senator from Ch irlestoi county, is
a gentleman who possesses intellectual
. gifts of the first order. lie is an elo
quont, experienced, thoroughly edu
cated and sound lawyor. His personal
record and character is wltnout blem
ish. As a young man and member of
tho Wallace house, in its savage strug
gle against tho radical imoostors,
when the redemption of tho common
wealth trembled in the balance, he
was distinguished for aggressive cour
age. Tn the still more acuto struggle
for tho redemption of tho city of
Charleston from negro misrule ho was
equally conspicuous. Tho selection of
Mr. Barnwell for the democratic nom
ination in his district will insuro for
the tiate a member of congress worthy
of tho state's best traditions and in hia
person the state will havo in the halls
of legislation a force which will bo felt
and heard throughout tho nation. In
our judgment tho lirst dletrlot has a
rich opportunity in the candidacy of
Mr. Barnwell, for his election would
inuro to tho good of all South Carolina.
Strong,efllclent men are .'orely noeded
by the South at Washington and Mr.
Barnwell is thoroughly representative
of the South'a best.

f Beautiful Home Wedding.
. Tho morning of thanksgiving
day dawned in glorious splendor*,
tho rich autumnal tints in air and
leaf, combined with tho wealth of
sunshine, made it an ideal day.
'While as a nation wo were re
joicing on account of national
blessings, expansions and victo
ries, there wero those who were
deeply grateful for tho lovely day
Soon after high noon many
friends and visitors began to as
semblo in tho hospitable home of
Mr. J; N. Holcombe, near Hobbys
ville. [ The occasion was one t hat
never grows old but is ever clothed
in perennial intorost both to the
aged and tho young. Mr. W. H.
Shankl'in a prominent, popular
and mast deserving young busi

the hand of one ol the beautiful
and cultured daughters of the
family and now the time had
come, when he should claim Miss
Alma Holcombe as his bride.?
While Mrs. Dr. J. M. Lanhnm
rendered the "Wedding March"
on the organ the handsome young
couple, preceded by Rev. E. C.
Watson, tho officiating clergy
man, entered tho parlor, which
was already tilled by the "beauty
and chivalry-' of tho community.
By an impressive and unique cere
mony the two hearts that had
long boon beating in unison, wero
joined for life. Tho fine looking
groom was tho impersonation of
quiet, manly dignity?just such a
man any maiden could trust. The
queenly bride woro a dross of
brown satin trimmed with blue
tucked silk and white applique
lace. Sho hold in her hand a
bunch of rare white flowers. The
display of wedding presents was
magnificent^ the numbers and
olegance of tho gifts attesting the
high osteom in which tho cultured
and boautiful bride was hold by
her friends and associates.
Aftor many congratulations tho
happy couple, togothor with many
invited guests, drovo to Wood
ruff, where a magnificent recep
tion was extended by Mrs. George
Loatherwood, tho well-known and
popular proprietress of tho Wood
ruff hotel. A largo party of Wood
ruff's business and professional
men greeted tho happy couple
with hearty congratulations. At
0 p. m., wo woro conducted into
the large spacious dining room
where ono long tablo was elabo

It is u purely mutual Company. Thero aro no stockholders. All its
assets, surplus and earnings belong exclusively to policy-hold
ers, who incur no personal liability.
It has an honorable record of fifty-four years, during all of which
time it has steadily increased in strength und prosperity.
Its policies are incontestable from date of issue.
Its policies as now issued contain no restriction as to residence, travel
or occupation, as to habits of life, or as to manner, time or
place of death.
Tho sole oondition is that if premiums are paid tho Company will
certainly pay tho policy immediately in the event it becomes
a claim by death, either in one sum or a limited number of in
stalments at option or insured, and thus leavo a widow or an
estate a legacy and uot a law-suit.
Its policies cannot, be forfeited after being one year in force, the in

extended insurance or a paid-up policy.
Its policies will bo re-instated at any time during tho five years fol

provisions have become operative.
