HEARD FROM AGAIN.
Mr. Editor:-Your readers, you say,
Want to see mo? Tell them to come up
and join me in the fray against Gen.
Green. I received a kind letter from
Tin: Advertiser recently soliciting a
^resumption of my correspondence to her
^columns; also, stating that a number of
leaders had been making inquiries as to
my whereabouts, some suggesting that
I bo advertised after, and that a reward
Mow, I write to acknowledge my ap
preciation of and gratitude to my
friends who hold me in pleasant remem
brance, and who take an interest in my
ploasantrios and sayings, foolish and
-^otherwise. But beg to say I can't
come. The farmer this year who has a
p^pll crop has seen sights, and the one
Who has over a full crop is still seeing
It frequently occurs that we have a
two weeks' wet spell in June, but this
is one of the few years, occurring only
about once a decade, in which we have
six weeks' rain in June. I have often
spoken of such Junes to an intelligent
neighbor of mine who is himself a
farmer of eighty summers, and one who
is observant of occurring and recurring
i incidents. But he always insists that
he never saw a July without two weeks'
drought. So July has to wait over a
few weeks in a year like this till June
gets through with weather. Now, boys,
let us rally wjth renewed energy and
clean up things before August, since
that month has to wait her turn to come
No, I can't write. You don't know
nothing! 1 have to plow. To put it in
thi language of Dave Harris, whom I
fcaught not long since in a grassy field
\>f cotton plowing, perspiring and sweat
ing: "I just have to work or perish?just
one or the other." I guess he felt that
way. I do.
As the days grow hotter and the grass
offers more anil more resistance I have
taken occasion to consult with my wife
over the situation. She has about de
cided, after some persuasion, and a full
statement of details touching the prob
lem, that it is dangerous for me to
prosecute my labors further, and that 1
had better rest up a little. Of course I
had told her of a few cases of fever I
had heard of, and that I was even ap
prehensive of small pox, going on as I
had been--working and fretting and
foaming in this hot sun. She thinks a
lot of me, and if I can manage to in
timidate her in this way and got her to
let me stay in a little longer during the
heat of the day I shall with groat pleas
ure respond to the call of my dear read
ers, and thus give expression to the
gratitude swelling up in my heart and
seeking utterance at the point of my
pen toward the boys that are flattering
me by their repeated encores. Other
wise you will find me down in the creek
patch, the shop field, the barn piece,
or over in that cotton on the other side
the branch anent Wade's house (it's
grassy right) struggling with the tuss
ics and committing suicide by degrees.
In case you do not see me out soon
come and see me die.
Yours for the fray,
July 27th, 1906.
P. S.?But say 1 In dating this I am
reminded that this is the day Tilhnan is
to speak at Laurcns. I had forgot it.
I wanted to go down and cro^s lances
with the gentleman from South Caro-!
Una on the dispensary question ? the |
best solution, etc. I understood that
the last time he spoke at Laurens he
made some personal allusions to Brother !
Bob and his article then just published ?
in The State. I'm loaded for the gen-'
tlcman from South Carolina.
m. LYON AT BENNETTSVILLE.
Candidate for Attorney General Received
Ovation in Marlboro County.
Benncttsville, July 25. ? About 800
good citizens of Marlboro board the
candidates In the Court House here to
day. The feature of the meeting was
^ the great ovation given Frazer Lyon,
I No Candidate .has received such a recep
tion here since the days when Tillman
ijan for Governor.
Mr. Ragsdale spoke first. He was ap
plauded when he complimented the late
C. S. McCall. He twitted Marlboro fori
its jug trade, and said; "If Marlboro
wants prohibition, in the name of God
let her have it!" (Applause.) "I know
bat there was rottenness in the dis
ensary before the investigation com
ittee created all this stir and turmoil,
knew it before Bristow and Davis
ve their testimony. That's not evi
nce to convict, but I know that there I
s been rottenness. Do not listen to i
appeal of partisan newspapers. Do
"let frisinuations and unworthy mo
ves influence you." (Applause.)
When Mr. Lyon came forward to J
'.peak he was greeted with a tremen
dous round of applause. When it sub
sided, he said: "We have just witnessed J
the spectacle of a man declaring that]
be knew of corruption in the dispensary
before the committee brought it out,
and yet who has never raised his voice
or lent a hand to help the committee in
its work." (Great applause.)
Mi-. Ragsdale stood up to interrupt
Mr. Lyon, and when he could be beard
he said with feeling: "I don't want any
i personalities in tins campaign, and I
ta^n't propose to have you say any
Hrtqg personal about me, sir. I did not
say that 1 knew of any specific instance
of corruption, but only that there was
"Sit down!" cried a voice, and there
*was a storm of applause and hurrahs
Continuing Mr. Lyon said: "He said
be knew it, and yet. he has no evidence
to substantiate it Then why does he
stand here and accuse? Be knows, and
they all know, that the dispensary
stands convicted before the bar of pub
Cnion. They try to wriggle out of j
laying there is no legal evidence
which to convict. (Applause.)
onfession of a criminal is consid
ood evidence. The chairman of
the board showed a hatful of money
thousand dollar bills, which he said
he received as graft. (Applause.) He
told of threats upon himself and wit
nesses, and said he intended to prosec
ute graft whenever ho saw it. He con
gratulated Marlboro upon never having
declared for the dispensary. There was
^pfto'longcd applause when he closed.
? A Mealing Gospel.
The Rev. J. C. Warren, pastor of
Sharon Baptist Church, Belair, Ga.,
sa.ys of Electric. Bitters; "It's a God
send to mankind. It cured me of lame
back, stiff joints, and complete physi
cal collapse. I was so weak it took me
half an hour to walk a mile. Two bot
l h s of Electric Bitters have made me so
strong I have just walked 3 miles in 50
minutes and feed like walking 3 more.
It's made a new man of me." Great
