FROM SEIN. TILLMAN
Writes Long Commnnioation to Gaff

r. C. Hiekson that his Health is
Editor Gaffney Ledger:
Tho enclosed letter, just received
from Senator Tillman. I fed sure will
give pleasure to his many friends in
Cherokee County, and although it
looks immodest in me to publish
what he says of myself, and seems a
violation of confidence, I am making
bold to publish it as it is. Of course,
his enemies and my enemies will not
appreciate it. but our friends will.
P. C. Hickson.
"Dev. P. C. Iliekson,
??Gaffney. S. C.
"My dear old Friend:
"I have just received yours or Oc
tober 2nd, and it does me good be
cause I know it comes from an hon
est heart and one whose whole being
is penmeated with sincerity and good
ness. You speak about your sorrow
at heating mo talk about getting 'old
and being siek.' You know it is true,
so why be sad about it? We have all
got to die sometime and I realize
very fully that my time to go to the
great 'beyond Is not far off. The idea
is not worrying me at all. although 1
have not got that peace of mind
which you seem to possess in regard
to the hereafter. I simply have a
hope?a very strong hope?but not
"I am taking the best of care of
myself as far as 1 know how to do it,
and you will be rejoiced, I know, to
learn that I myself believe that I am
gradually Improving. But the pro
gress is very, very gradual. 1 do not |
allow anything to worry me, but
throw it off and go on doing my duty
its I understand it.
"I aim untiling you a copy of Dr.
Blcdsoe's 'The Mission of Woman."
and also a copy of my speech on
'Woman Suffrage.' You seem to like
it so well that you may want to have
it in that form, and it is possible
that your name may not have been
on the list of those to whom it was
sent. I only had ten thousand copies
of it printed.
"I will reproduce in the Record to
morrow, and in pamphlet form the
day after, an article 1 wrote for the
New York World in 1896, giving my
view on Wall Street and the Deviltry
those scoundrels perpetuated on the
farmers of the South and West. I
know you will enjoy it.
"I am sending you also a little
poem which 1 eame across last Stum
mer in an old newspaper. It has af
forded me a great deal of comfort,
as it gives a most cheerful view of
death and tho grave. 1 know you
will enjoy reading it.
"I note your tone of unhappiness
about the moral condition of our peo
ple, and you lament at what 1 said
about. South Carolina is not. true.
They are becoming more demoralized
every day in a political way, it seems
to me, and Governor Blcase appears
to be aggravating conditions in ovory
way possible. The 'blind tigers,'
gtimblers and whore mongers appear
to be running tho State, in a way,
and now they are trying to buy votes
in the primary. Hut we cannot afford
to despair of the old State, and all
of Us who are old enough to rem elm -
bor the better ideals of the past,
ought to hold fast to those ideals and
try to teach the younger generation
to rise to them, rather than drag
down the State from the customs of
"I will be glad if you will write
me fully and frankly just what you
think of the political condition in
Cherokee county, and the probable
outcome of the race for the Senate.
"With assurances of my hlxiust
esteem and respect, 1 am.
"Yours very sincerely.
"B. it. Tillman."

Two Merchants and Their Stores.
(By Walt Mason, in Juno System.i
He was selling tacks and turnips in
a gloomy corner store, and he never
washed his windows and he never
swept his lioor, and he let the cob
webs gather on the ceiling and the
walls, and he let his whiskers nour
ish till they brushed his overalls. So
bis customers forsook him ?for his pa
trons were not chumps?and the sher
iff came and got him and that mer
chant bumped the bumps.
He was selling liens and hammocks,
as he'd done since days of youth, and
he queered himself with many, for
he never told the triui<. (). he thought
it rather cunning if hi sold a rooster
old as a young and tender pullet
through the artful lies lie told; and
he'd sell a shoddy hammock as a
thing of silken thread, and the cus
tomer would bust jt and fall out upon
his head; so his customers forsook
him, and he sadly watched them Hit.
and the sheriff came and go' him, and ,
that merchant hit the grit.
He was selling shoes and sugar
sugar from the sunny South?and he'd
roast the opposition when he should
have shut his mouth. He would stand
and rant and rumble by the hour of
Mr. Tweet, who was selling shoes and
sugar in the shack across the street;
and he'd vow all kinds of vengeance,
and he'd tell all kinds of tales, 'til his
wearied patrons sometimes rose and
smote him with his scales; for they
cared about his troubles and his sor
rows not three whoops, and the sher
iff cajne and got him, and that mer
chant looped the loops.
He was selling books ami beeswax,
and his store was neat und ( lean, and
the place was bright and cheerful, and
the atmosphere serene. He was tidy
in his person, and his clerks were
much the same, and no precious time
Was wasted in the tiresome knocking
game. And the customer who entered
was with courtesy received, and he felt
quite proud and happy when of cash
he was relieved. And the merchant's
word was golden, what he said was al
ways true, and he sold no moldy bees
wax, saying it was good as new. And
his trade kept on Increasing 'til his
bank account was fat. and the sheriff,
when he met him, always boWed and1,
tipped his hnt.

FOR FIVE YEARS
Majority of Friends Thought Mr.
Hughes Would Die, But
One Helped Him to
Pomeroyton, Ky.?In interesting ad
vices from this place, Mr. A. J. Hughes
writes as follows: "I was down with
stomach trouble for five (5) years, and
would have sick headache so bad, at
times, that I thought surely 1 would die.
I tried different treatments, but they
did not seem to do me any e,ood.
I got so bad, I could not eat or sleep,
and all my friends, except one, thought I
would die. He advised me to try
Thedford's Black-Draught, and quit j
taking other medicines. I decided to
take Iiis advice, although I did nol have
any confidence in it.
I have now been taking Black-Draught
for three months, and it has cured mc?
haven't had those awful sick headaches
since I began using; it.
I am so thankful for what Black
Draught lias done for mc."
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
found a very valuable medicine for de
rangements of the stomach and liver. It
is composed of pure, vegetable herbs,
contains no dangerous ingredients, and
acts gently, yet surely. It can be freely
used by young and old, and should be
kept in every family chest.
