Thc Sumter Watchman says that not
withstanding the anti-blind tiger ordi

is a large force of constables in thai
city all the while, aod that after a while
they expect to make arrests. Arrest*
for what ? Surely there are no blind
tigers in a towo that has an ordinance
against selling liquor. We have been
told that if this city would ouly pass ac
ordinance against the sale of whiskey,
that the blind tigers would all go ofl
.and the constables would have nothiog
to do.-Spartanburg Herald.
We cannot say why the constables are
bere. but it is a fact that one or two are
here nearly all the time, and on several
occasions we have had four or five of
them pointed out. Perhaps they are
watching tbe depots.
THE NETTLES CARD.
In our last issue there appeared a
card from Mr. S. A. Nettles, former
editor and proprietor of the Sumter
Herald. This card was received on
last Wednesday morning, accompanied
by a note to tbe proprietor of this paper,
urgently requesting that the card be in?
serted in the issue of that day. There?
fore, the card was inserted by the pro?
prietor, and we saw it for the first time
in the paper. For this reason there was
oo comment on the card in the last
Now, in the first place, we have kept
bands off in the discussion of the Herald
and its negro editor, because there was
no principle at sta ie that affected the
public interests, ?nd no right involved
save that of each man being privileged j
to choose bis associates. This is a right
we allow oo one to gainsay to us, and
when the Herald announced its purpose
to have a negro department and pro- j
ceeded to carry oat the plan, we had
DOtbiog to say, as we did not conceive
it to be our doty to advise Mr. Netties
(or Mr. Koight, it now appears) as to
whom he should select as bis associate
editor. Bot since the matter has been
brought ioto the columns of the Watch'
man and Southron, we most give ex?
pression to our views on the subject.
This new departure io Sumter jour*
nalism did not alter, io any particular,
our previous opinion of the editor of that
paper, for he had, for a loog time, al?
most an ideutical department io the
Maoning Times. We were not eveu sur?
prised. We did oot recollect the very
slight differeoce io headiogs, spoken of
by Mr. Nettles in his card, and, at any
rate, it is a mere distinction without a
real difference, in substance ; and we
cannot see io what respect he has bet?
tered his position by the publication of
of the card.
As the oase stands sinoe the publica?
tion of Mr. Nettles' card. Mr. Knight
is left to bear the odium of selecting a
negro as associate editor of the Herald,
in imitation of Mr. Nettles' department
io the Manning Times, and not being
wily eoongh to so ?ord the heading of
bis * 'Afro-American" department as to
be able to quibble out on occasion.
As far as we are personally concerned,
to be candid, we do oot care whether
Mr. Nettles or Mr. Knight or both of
them associate negroes with them in the
editoral departments of their papers or
not. If there ia a demand for that class
of papers, some one, will voluntarily
supply it, sod as we are not catering to
such a demand, our interests would not
conflict with the interests of these
gentlemen should they see fit to volun?
teer in this field; therefore our indiffer?
ence. And we also knew that our self
respecting readers would justly estimate
the hybridized j oar na! without a sug?
gestion from os. We are of the same
opinioo : Let the negroes have every?
thing to which the law entitles them,
that they can obtain. Let them have
schools, col loges, churches, societies and
papers ; but always keep them separate
and distinct from like institutions in?
tended for the whites. Any admixture
in any one of them is a step in the direc?
tion of social equality, and the white
man who makes the step is deserving of
the contempt 'of all Southern men,
women and children.

follows: "The dispensary has not jet open?
ed business in Mayes iii le, although the Dis?

inability of the Dispenser to make a satisfac?

Rev. D. C. Hardin,
Of Arkansas preached at Pisgah Church
on Sunday evening and Monday at ll a. m.,
last, to large audiences who had turned out
to bear their forme? pastor and friend. His
theme on Sunday evening was "Following
Christ;" and be treated it all through in a
masterly manner, lt was a doctrinal sermon
from a Baptist standpoint. 'The speaker
made numerous references from the Bible to
sustain his argument, and distributed
printed cards of bis own, showing all the
passages of Scripture on ,Baptism, aod an
ingenious arrangement for the reader to
express his opinion on the same He said :
"Those who say that Baptism by immersion
is indecent, insults God, for God created
nothing indecent or wrong." bis text
Monday was founded on Genesis 7 chap. 16
v. It would afford me great pleasure to lay
before your readers this admirable sermon,
but it woold take too much of your space to
do so. Mr. Hardin has greatly improved in
his preaching since he lived here, and is one
of the strong men of the Baptist Church.
His stay with us was so limited that I
could not get an account of bis new home,
but he said from the pulpit, that great reli?
gious .destitution prevailed where be was,
that he often preached night and'day for a
month ata time to help supply the destitu?
tion. He stated that men would rise in
the congregation during service and argue
with the preacher So different from what it
Mr. Hardin arrived in this State on 21st,
Dec, and will leave for his home on the 19tb
inst. He will stay about a week in Sumter
and Kershaw Counties, preaching to his old
churches, aod visiting friends. Mr Hardin
is much esteemed and loved here. His visit
bas been a source of great enjoyment to bis
friends, and bis sermons have done a great
deal of good. A good many have said
whose lives have not been in accord with the
teachings of Holy Writ, that they intend to
mend their ways in the future. We hope*he
will come again soon and stay longer, so ali

Letter From Wedgefield.
WEDGEFIELD, January 15, 1894.
Farmers are shoving their work. Am glad
to bear some of them avow that they will not
use so much commercial fertilizers this year.
Heard one of our large and very successful
farmers say a few days ago thai he only in?
tended to buy two tons of gumto and that
was for his corn. That looks something like
coming down to it. If it takes such hard
times as these to bring us to it-well we have
to gel there some how.
It is thought that in this community there
will be an unusual number of idle lands this
year, owing to the fact that so many "bell
rope" farmers will not be able to get advances.
Although very inferior, labor is very plenti?

The funeral services of Mr. J. E. Law were
soleminized at St. Luke's Church on Sunday
the 7th inst. The services were conducted by
Dr. Darby nnd the Rev. Mr. W. H. Holds?
worth. It was the largest and saddest gather
?og at an interment that 1 ever witnessed. The
high estimation of Johnnie's worth and merits
was evinced by the large concourse of friends
and neighbors. Those only who were in?
timately associated with him knew the
nobility of his character. He was a very un?
assuming and modest young man, full of
energy and perseverance. Had bis young
life been spared he would have made bis mark
in the business world. He was a kind hus?

fearful and terrific death is deeply lamented
by all classes of our people.

One of the eighty-horse power boilers used ;
to run Lukens & Reifsnyder's lumber mill, i
this city, exploded on Monday between ll j
and 12 o'clock. The boiler was comparative?
ly new, having been in use only about three j
years, and the explosion WHS wholly unex- j
pected. The other boiler bas been in use j
eight years and is stili perfectly sound. The ;
explosion was caused by internal corrosion, j
which affected only one plate, the others now
being sound and uncorroded while the one
corroded appears to have been not more
than a sixteenth of an inch in thickness in
some places. The corrosion was due, with?
out doubt, to some defect in the plate. !
When the explosion occurred there was a j
pressure of about 65 pounds registered on the
steam guage and there was an abundance of
water in the boiler. The defective plate was
in the front end of the boiler just over the
furnace, consequently the front end was
blown out and up into the air to the height of
sixty or seventy feet, passing over and
beyond the dry kilo, a distance of at least
one . hundred and fifty 'feet. The smoke
stacks were also blown to a considerable
height. The other portion of the boiler was
blown out of the brick work and turned
completely over, knocking down and wreck?
ing the water tank and frame work The
other boiler was blown out of the brick work
but was not injured to any extent. The
twenty or more thousand brick surrounding
trie boiler were scattered broad cast in every
direction, each one having the force of a
cannon ball. The boiler bouse was totally
demolished, the brick shavings house near by
was knocked into a cocked bat, freight cars
standing on the A Gi- L. track near by bad
boles knocked into their sides, and several
houses and sheds surrounding the boiler
house were damaged by the flying missiles.
The wbitste attached lo the boiler fell near
Carr's planing mill, about five hundred
yards distant; and other pieces of the wreck?
age were blown lo as great distances. Tbe
end of the boiler blown over the dry kiln
weighs at least one thousand pounds
The remarkable fact connected with the
disaster is that no one was killed. Mr.
John Kennedy who was running to get out of
i he way of tbe flying bricks was struck on
the head by a failing brick, when about two
hundred or more feet distant from tbe boiler
house. His injures are severe but not
Mr. Thomas Smith, slightly injured.
Ransom Pea, colored, waa painfully

There were a large number of bands at
work near tbe explosion and their escape is
nothing short of remarkable.
Mr. C. P. Berwick's wagoo, which was at
the mill was smashed, the horse taking
fright and running away. Mr. J.' P.
Lau h rey's wagon was also damaged.
The total damage is estimated to be be?
tween $7,000 and $10,000. The boiler was not
insured. The large force of hands employed
will be thrown out of work until the
damages can be repaired, but it is hoped that
the mill will be in running order again soon,

CAMKEN, S. C., Oct. 14, 1862.
Messrs. Boy kin, Carmer ? Co., Nos. ll and
13 N. Liberty St., Baltimore, Md.,
Dear Sirs : In reply to yours of the 7th
insts, I wbuld say I used the "Cerealite"
bought of you, principally as a top-dressing
on oats. Applied it about the 10th of March,
and in my opinion the yield was increased
from 25 or 27 bushels per acre to 40 or 45
per acre. I was much pleased with the dress?
ing. In 4 days after the application I could
see a marked improvement in the growth and
condition of the crops. The soil on which
crop was grown is a light sandy loam, which,
without fertilizer, would produce say, 25
bushels oats per acre, or 12 bushels corn. I
used some of the "Cerealite" on corn, applied
it at time of planting and was much pleased
with the result. The corn grew off rapidly
and matured early. I am much pleased with
your "Cerealite," and will continue to use it.
Yours very respectfully,
E. MILLER BOYKIN.
