('apt. R. H. Wright receivedI aff41
grai last, Wednesday announeing the
death of )r. W. C. (iliani, which
occurred at Ocala, Flt., Tuedalmy night,
the M.'th. A special to The State from
Spartanburg gives the following:
'None of the particulars of Dr. (il
liam's deatb were known her- until his
family arrived. He had not been able
to sleep for several nights and on
Tuesday night his wife advised him to
try to sleep sitting up in a chair. He
fell into a ((,ze and about 5 o'clock in
the worning fancied or dreamed that
be beard some one trying to get in his
room. He walked out on the balcony
anid stepped off, failing three stories.
He breathed about two hours, but
never regained consciousness."
Dr. Gilliam was,born in Newberry
about forty years ago. He graduattd
at Wofford College and then at the
University of Virginia. He then grad
uated in medicine in New York and
afterwards went abroad and studied
five years. On his return he settled in
New York, but three years ago con
cluded to practice in winter at Ocala.
Fla., where he owns a great deal of
property. He was born five months
after his father's death and his mother
has never been separated from him.
Her whole life was wrapped in his and
his death is a terrible blow to
her and his bride-widow. He was
married to Miss Fannie Blake, of
Spartanburg, September 4th and had
gone with her and his mother to
Florida for the winter.
DR. GILLIAM'S FUNERAL.
The remains of Dr. W. C. Gilliam,
accompanied by his wife and mother,
arrived here from Ocala at 2 30 p. m.
yesterday, by way of Columbia. They
were met at the station by a large com
mittee of Masons and many friends of
the family. The funeral services were
conducted at Oakwood cemetery at 4
o'clock instead of at 10 this morning as
was arranged. The body was laid to
rest with masonic honors and the
beautiful ceremony of this order never
seemed more grand and solemn than
on this occasion. Bishop Duncan, Rev.
T. D. Bratton and Rev. W. A. Rogers
were the oflicating ministers. One of
the largest crowds that has ever been
present at a funeral in this city was out
to pay the last token in respect to a
man who died as be had lived-uobly.
The floral tributes were numerous and
unusally handsome. The following
gentlemen acted as pall bearers:
A. F. Moore. A. B. Calvert, J. M.
Nicholls, Dr. C. W. Thomson, S. T.
McCravy, W. A. Law, W. E. Burnett
and Mr. Crosland, who represented the
Chi Psi fraternity of which Dr. Gilliam
was a member while in Wofford Col
lege.-- Spartanburg Herald, 16t h.
W. A. McG3uire, a well known citizen of
McKay, Ohio, is of the opinion that there is
not hing as good for caidren troubled with
colds or croup as Chamberlain3's Cough Rem
edy. Hie has used it in his family for several
years with the best results and always keeps
a bottle of it in the house~ After having la
grippe he was himself troub:ed with a severe
cough. He used other remedies without bene
it and then concluded to try the c idren's

Col. Hana's Lectures.
Everybody who heard Col. H. WV. J.
Ham's lectures were delighted, and the
only regret is that the opera house was
not crowde&. His "Snllygoster in
Politics" is uuappiroaebiuble; it cannot
be counterfeitec. It is a conception
of even birth with the reputation of its
distinguished author, whose appear
ance upon the rostrum was as brilliant
as thbe flash of a meteor, but still as
resplendent in power as the noonday
sun. His reputation is national; he is
loved and honored everywhere, and if
we would write columns in his praise
we could not say more than he is one
of nature's noblemen, and his lectures
the embodiment of a sentiment that
inds a responsive chord in the hearts
of his audience.

it: "Dear Doctor, please let

our bfltim arni li.- (owri in despair and

I <lon't prtipose to fix up a pack of
sttll composed of grumbling, for of all
the l,eople that wol ever meet in the
world, there is nonie we get tired of so
(juick as the old chronic grumbler.
;ut nvvertheless we have sowethiuz
confrouting the whole laboring class of
people now that dewands our serious
attention and consideratiou.
The question has often been asked
politically, where are we at? Now the
same question, financially, stares us in
the face, where are we at?
Why here we are with almost two
thirds of the whole people suffering,
right in the midst of plemty. Now we
have heard enough of political, hot
headed ag.tation to do us for evermore,
and so lowg as the people allow them
selves to be stil r,d up with those hot
headed want ing-to-be-pap-suckers of
the laud we will have nothing but
strife and envy and no time to spare to
better our moral, as well as financial
onditIon. If we ever get out of this
distressed condition we have got to
come right down, not only to thinking
and talking, but acting at howe, and
we will never get a better time to com
mence than right now, for God knows,
dear people, if we wait for legislation to
help us we will starve to death waiting.
We know that it is truly bard for a
poor set of people to labor the whole
year round, toiling and sweating day
after day, and after we gather our crops
they are taken away from us by a set
of people that were born, as the saying
goes, with a silver spoon in their
mouths, who do not, will not, and can
not enter into any feeling of sympathy
with the noor man. Now this depres
sion is ca6sed by a set of people, we are
not fully able to say who and where,
and I want it to be understood that I
am making no war upon our h:me
merchants, for I believe at least a large
portion of them are doing everything
in their power to help the poor farmers
pull through. While we have fallen
oebind, we must agree that it is not
altogether from paying our merchants
an extortionate rate of interest.
One of the main causes of the coun
try being in this impoverished cQndi
tion is, we have not diversified our
rops enough. We have at last followed
the cotton system down to the bottom
>f the ditch, and the question no longer
remains with the most of the farmers,
how much cotton are you going to
plaut another year, but how much will
you be able to plant. Another great
crawback to us poor people is, we have
!inally lost sight of the way of living of
our good old ancestors and have been
ontinually trying to live like some
body else, following the curseaJ fashions
ad pride of the devil-living above
our means, or at least living on some
body else's means. Now, we like to
see thrift and enterprise and progress of.
every description, as well as anytbody,
provided people are able to pay for it
with their own money. We have no
objections to seenlg you]ng men wearimg
their boxtoed shoes, cutaway coats,
stiff cufis and standing collars, frilled
shirts and dude hats, but for God's
.ake fromi no(w on whben you wear thbem
be sure that you are able to pay cash
for them and call them your own.
Now, young ladies, a word to you: We
know inoat it is very nice and pleasau t
for you to go to all the public gather
ings, such as picnics and barbecues,
,eleLbrations5 and big meetings, synods
and conferences and attend all the ie .t
of the social entertainments and also
to have something new, very nice and
pretty to wear every time .vou go out,
but if you know that your father or
mother has it to buy on credit wear
what you have or stay at home.
Yes, we have got to come down to
fine racket and deny ourselves many
so-called pleasures that we have t.een
participating in, which all cost an
amon of money when summed up.
ince the s peculators have taken from
us the only moneyed crop that we
have, we have got to learn ourselves to
ive with very little money.
It makes no difference what Bill
oies's)us and daughters wear, if they
'tress in thbe finest appearal, that has
n .th;mg in God's world i.o do with
your case. Put on what you have just
so it is clean and decent and paid for,
and wear it wherever you go and let
those sap-headed fools laugh at you if
they desire. Just keep it up for a few
years and it wont be long before they
will be round to borrow a dollar or two.
Did you ever think about it, dear
reader, whatever is honest, it matters
not how low some people may call it,
it is honorable.
Some people will hoot at the
idea of wearing cloth now when
you can buy it at 5 cents per yard.
But let us look at it this way. It takes
I0 lbs of lint cotton to buy a woman a
dress, and if she works in the field she
will have it in strings and rags in four
weeks. Now at this rate a woman
would wear out 130 lbs of lint cotton
fr her every day wear, in one year.:No w
let this same woman take 10 lbs of lint
ctt In and spin and weave it into cloth.
She can do this in the winter months'
when she would not have been doing
aaything else, and then she will have
20 yards of good cloth which will make
tier two dresses that will last her the
whole year; now she has not,.only made
you a savin gof]320 lbs of lint cotton,
nt she has also saved the time and
troad that it would have taken to
mi k up those extra dresues.
\e know that not every family is so
situated to make cloth at the present,
but I do know that a major.ity of fami
lies can go to work this winter and
m ake clothb enough-for~teir ee.a
wear the baki6ce of the coming year.
I I .Wadmit that it would look !.ike a
sow business for a woman to go.to
New berry and look at the cotton mills
and then come home and go to battling
with the old time looms, but I tel.l you,
my dear friends, it is not as slow as
raising cotton at 5 cents per pound.
I say again, never give up, dear old
fellow farmers, we are going to whip
this fight as certain as time lasts, but
bar in mind, we will never do it so
long as we depend on 5 cents cottoc
and fool so much of our valuable time
away litening lat bot headed Tap
sukers. Kill your worthless dogs and
get you an extra hog, get you a loom
and put your women to making cloth
this winter, rake up litter and make
your own fertilizer. There has been a
certain class of people crying out over
poduction of cotton for years; now it
us ive them an over production of6
c"th and don't ask Chips any more
qu~stions about the matter for he in
teds to practice what he preaches.
Mrs. Lizzie Hunter is spending a
while with her sister, Mrs. Katie Moore,
in the O'Neall section.
Chills and fever have almost abated
in this section.
School at Union academy will open
on Monday next, the 26th, with Mr.
John C. Turner as teacher.
Mr. T. D. Kinard, who has been
quite ill for nearly three mon, hs does

Highest of all in Leavening Fo
We think 1that there has been plenty
of corn raised tthroughout this section
to supply the people another year, and
more than an usual amount of meat
is beis4g fattened.
Although we cannot pay all we owe,
yet thank God we are in a condition to
make less debts anoth"r year. So let
us not repine, for where tbere's a will
there's a way.
The council of Bich man Chapel have
given the R-v. J. A. Sligh a unani
wous call to preach for another year,
nd there was an eftrt made with Mt.
Pilgrim council to give away one of
heir Sundays in the forenoon, and let
ach chureh-Bachiman Chapel and
,It. Pilgrim-have oueS.!nday a month
a the forenoon and once in the after
3oo. Mt. Pilgrim would not agree to
ive away their regular forenoon ser
ices. So Mr Sligh has kindly con
weted, if the couneii cannot make
eter arrangements. to preach once a
onth in the evening. CHIPS.
