This Democratic County Convention
yewerday nominated a very good Leg

This Cbattanorgi Times, wbith is

is complete in itself. The terms are
very reasonable, the object being to

Wiggins is being wiged on allsidts.

earthquake and tornado oh the 29th it
etant,:wdi8everd "by CapVSpeed;
tf thin eityv'who, in company With a
member cf tbe Courier Journal staff,
proposed 4 j bave a 'attle April 1st fun
witU the leaders of this paper. Capt
Speed imagined the balance wheel
spoken of by Wiggins, and the Conritr
Journal made a note of it. And that
is all the foundation Wiggins h;s for
his t:rrible predictions, which will
never come to pa-s." But, as if this
was not enough, the Yickaburg Com
mercial nuteS that Wiggins, in his pre
diction abcut the earthquake to
ccur cn the 29th, on ths 53th
of September distitct'y ' stated
'there is no danger from earth
quakes in America until tbe 29th
iuttant, and even then tbe earthquake
force will move from east to weit on a
parallel a few degrees south of Chtr.es
too. If L'harltston is vuiied tbis time,
jt can only be on tbat dav." His as
oertinn was hardly out of his mouth
"that there is r.0 dinger until the 29th,
and if Charleston is visited it cn only
be on that day," when the teleanpn
announced severe shocks in Ctiarles
ten, Savannah and other points in that
localiry. They prove is a fraud as
fir as being able to foretill taith
qoakes is concered, for if he hid
known, f he pretendri, the cau'e cf

Wintersmith's Chill Curs.
Orrics or ths Coraira-Jot'awAi.,
Dr. WitutnmithSir : 1 waive a rule I bars
observed for many years, tbe value of your
remedy pronptins me to say, in reply to
your request, what I know of your Chill
Cure. Ibe private assuranoea of Its eflioacj
I had. and tne sood results of it effects 1
had observed on Mr. K. W. Meredith, who,
for more then Alteon yeara, bad I een lore
man of my offhe, induced me to teat it In
my family. Xbe results bave bten entirely
taiisfaetory. Tbe 0 r-1 easa was of two
years' standing, in which 1 believe every
known remedy bad been tried with tempo
rury rellel the ehllls returnini perlodieiilly
and with seemingly inorewed severity.
Your eure broke them at onoe, and there hn
been no reourrenoe of them for more than
ail months. The other ease was ol a milder
form, and yielded more readily to olhor
remedies i but the chills would return nt In
tervals until your medicine was utcd.ainoe
wbicb lime, now several months, they have
enriroly disappeared. From the opportu
nity f have hud tojudre, I do not hesitate to
express my belixf that your Chill Cure is a
valuable speolrV, and portormt all you
prouiiielur It. Respectfully,
. W. N.DALDKMAN.
