^COL. WASH WATTS ?
HAS PASSED AWAY
Career of Distinguished
Citizen Comes to Close.
SKHTCll OF HIS LIFE.
r Member of the Famous Wallace House
and a Life Long Friend of the
Wednesday morning, June 27, just as
a new day was dawning the spirit of
Col. J. Wash Watts passed out into the
realms of forever, at his home near
the town of Mountville, this county.
He had been ill for several weeks, the
failure of his health being due princi
pally to the infirmities of old age. For
several days before the end came merh
stant attendance at his bedside.
The burial took place in this city
Thursday at noon, the service being
conducted by the Rev. J. B. Parrott of
Clinton, pastor of the Mountville
Baptist Church, of which. Col. Watts
was a leading member and deacon. Mr.
Parrott was assisted by the Rev. John
D. Pitts and the Rev. J. M. Shell, both
of this city. As evidence of the very
high esteem in which Col. Watts was
held by all there was a large gathering
of friends and relatives at the grave
Thursday to pay tribute to the memory
of an honorable and venerated friend
The active pall bearers were: Col.
H. Y. Simpson, Dr. H. K. Aiken, Mr.
J. D. Watts, Dr. W. H. Dial, Mr. D.
A. Davis, and Mr. W. N. Austin.
Honorary ? Dr. John A. Barksdale,
Capt. John R. Mint.er, Mr. John J.
Pluss, Mr. William L. Boyd, Mr. Wil
liam H. Garrett, and Major W. A.
Colonel James Washington Watts was
born August 30th, 1819, in Laurcns
county, near the Ncwberry line. He
was a son of James Watts, Jr., and
Nancy Clark Williams, and a great
grandson of Col. James Williams, of
King's Mountain fame. He received
his early education in the country
schools, and his classical training at the
Academy of Laurens. His health was
not good, and on this account he left
school at the age of sixteen. Upon
leaving school he went into business
with his uncle, Col. John D. Williams,
who was his guardian.
He combined the avocations of planter
and merchant. His title of colonel came
from his connection \ \ch the militia
cavalry. He was scarcely more than a
boy when he received the title.
Col. Watts was thrice married. His
first wife was Miss Sallie F. Jones,
daughter of General Thomas F. Jones
and grand-daughter of Judge Waddy
Thompson of Greenville, S. C. His
second marriage was to Mrs. Kittie
Gary Martin, daughter of Dr. Charles
Gary, and grand-daughter of Gen. John
King Griffin, for many years a memher
of Congress from his district. His third
wife was Mrs. Susan Constance Nance.
Six children of his first marriage lived
to maturity. Only four are living at
this writing: Mrs. John C. Davis, Mrs.
Lucy W. McGowan, James W. Watts
and Thomas J. Watts. By his second
marriage he had five daughters and one
.son. Of these Mr. John D. W. Watts,
of Laurens, Mrs. Rutledge Fuller and
Mrs. J. W. Hill, of Mountville, survive
him. There were no children of the
During his long and checkered life
Col. Watts held many positions of honor
and trust. All of them were filled with
credit to himself and profit to his coun
try. He was honored with the public
confidence nbt only in his own State,
but in Georgia during a residence there.
He moved to that State in 1852, and af
ter a residence of three years he was
urged to make the race for Ordinary
for Cass, now Bartow, county on the
Democratic ticket against the Know
Nothing Party. He was elected, and
held the office four years, declining re
election in 1859. Shortly after this he
sold his Georgia land for Confederate
money, retaining his slaves. This evi
idence of his confidence in the Southern
cause was disastrous to his finances. A
friend of his made the remark that the
war left him without twenty cents in
The ill health of his wife, who died in
18b'.2, prevented his entering the active
service of the Confederacy at the be
ginning of the struggle, but his means
were ever free to his country's call.
He served for a short time on the staff
?of Gen. P. M. B. Young. After Gen.
Young was wounded he went into the
Treasury Department. He was in Co
lumbia when it was burned.
Watts' family were in con
After the war he returned to Soutli
Carolina and entered upon his favorite
pursuit, that of planting and stock rais
ing. Having lost his all by the war his
? operations had to be conducted on a
limited scale. He has Been a life-long
member of the South Carolina State
/Agricultural Society, and his work in
^.tonncction with this society was always
a .source of great pleasure and pride to
hi.n. He was more than once elected
president of the society, but he always
declined the honor. In the year 1876
he wa*? the? fo\o exhibitor, thus retain
ing the possession of the fair grounds
for the aociety. The grounds had been
donated on the condition that they failed
not to hold a fair each year. Ever since
the war he has been an active exhibitor,
and he considered his work in connec
tion with the State Fair as his life
?work. During his last illness among
'.the last intelligible word? he uttered
were "Ba.yliss Creighton" and "Going
to the Fair."
Ho was a member of the Wallace
Wouso in 187(i,. and his patriotism ren
dered it fitting that his county should
tdroose him to stfrvc with Hampton and
Simpson in the labor of re-building a
shattered commonwealth. No greater
praise of a man ca.n bo uttered in this
State than to say, "He was a member
of the "Wallace. House."
In his personal relations Col. Watta
was one of the most popular men in the
State. He was a genial and charming
companion. His step-children looked
upon him with as much affection as did
bis own. Indeed his demeanor toward
them was such that they could not have

Clcmson Professor Has Written a Book
A work of far more than ordinary
value to the farmer and gardener has
just been published by Prof. J. S. New
man, who for the past twenty years or
more has been one of the most active
figures in the agricultural develope
ment of South Carolina. Previous to
his work in this State he was professor
of agriculture and horticulture in the
Alabama Polytechnic Institute, and di
rector of the Alabama experiment sta
tion. Later he has fdled the chair of
professor of agriculture and director of
the agricultural department of Clemson
College, and has been agriculturist and I
director of the State experiment sta
This work, covering a period of
thirty years, eminently fits Prof. New
man to write intelligently and to the
point on agricultural and kindred sub
ject!, and his new work, "Southern
Gardener's Practical Manual," is the es
sence of all these years of study and
experiment. As a work for gardeners
in general it jH equal to the best, but
more particularly to those of this sec
tion, as the peculiarities of our native |
soil, climate, vegetation and insect life
are dealt with to great extent. His i
formulae for insecticides and fungi
cidea have been thoroughly tested anil '
made adaptable for use in our native
gardens. The book is profusely illus
trated, well printed, substantially
bound, and should be carefully studied
by every one who has even a small
garden. Copies can be obtained of
Prof. J. S. Newman, Clemson College.
Killing at Orangcburg.
As a result of a business difficulty
Mr. Robert Covar of Orangcburg shot
and killed Mr. Jas. T. Parks of Colum
bia last Friday. Both men were
wounded, Mr. Covar not seriously. The
shooting took place at Orangcburg on
the public square.
The two men had been associated in
the ownership of a newspaper, The Pa
troit, in Orangeburg and the quarrel
arose from the settlement of the affairs
of this paper. Mr. Parks had accepted
a job in the State Dispensary at Colum
bia and sold his share in the newspa
per. It is reported that he held a mort
gage on the property which he was
preparing to foreclose.

Business of the Enterprise Bank Growing.
At a meeting of the stockholders of
the Enterprise Bank, held Saturday
morning, the capital stock of the bank
was increased from fifty thousand to
one hundred thousand dollars.
A resolution was passed placing the
value of the stock $115.00 and after the
present stockholders have been allowed
the opportunity to take their pro-rata
share, the officers of the bank were au
thorized to accept that price for the
new stock plus interest from July 15th
at eight per cent. It is thought the
stock will be readily taken at the price;
in fact, half the new stock was taken
at the meeting.
At a meeting of the directors the
usual three and half per cent, semi
annual dividend was declared, payable

Among them we are pleased to note

Cotton is late this year and if we had

for bales next fall.

Mr. N. M. Salley was elected to the

There is an impression that talk is

effect. But some of the candidates

twenty-four hours for the privilege of
speaking five minutes to, say, two hun
dred and fifty people, of whom proba
bly twenty-five per cent, are non-voters.
Let us do a little figuring: Besides the
physical and mental strain, the average
expense of a candidate is not less than
$020. Then his time should be worth $5
a day, or $250 for the campaign, a total
of $870. He speaks forty-one times,
five minutes at each meeting, or two
hundred and five minutes in the cam
paign. So it costs him about $1.25 a
minute to speak. Nothing "cheap"
