ABBEVILLK, 8.C. Wednesday, April 4. 1888. A Chip oil' the Old Block. We are In receipt of a sshreveport paper. giving the result of the r<v election for Wardens of the town. Our former eitiz-n, Mr. S. J. Zciglcr, the poii of Mitjor M. C. Xc-itrler, the most popular man in Abbeville county. was at the head of the ticket. Mr. Zeitiler seems to be as popular in the city of Slireveport as his father is in Abbeville county. Abbeville men are appreciated wherever they may go, but wherever as worthy a man as S. J. Zei?ler may live he will he sure to occupy the best known position of honor?a safe place in the hearts of the people. To live in the hearts of a free and independent people is worth more than a Royal Crown or a frieinl. less throne. The recent honor which has been conferred upon our former fellow citizen, makes him a subject for congratulation, and his many friends knowing him to boa man possessing Bterllngqnulitie6, will not lie surprised to hoar of his preferment in the city of his adoption. We congratulate our fellow-townsman on having so worthy a sou?and we congranlate a worthy Carolinian upon receiving the honors of a city like Shreveport. Six Bales on Lens than Four Acres. Mr. J. A. Brooks of this county may be sol down as a first-class farmer. Last year he made six bales of cotton, averaging -147 pounds, on three acres and three quarters of land. We don't know his methods, but lie has kindly promised to cive the readersof the Press and Banner a letter on the subject next week. If the farmers would give these matters more thought, and would write their experiences for the newspapers much good would be done. If he that made two blades of grass grow where only one grew before was a benefactor, how much greater benefactor is he who teaches us how to make two bales oi coi iou grow waere uuijr n imu uhiu gri-w otfore? For Shcriir. Mr. Tnotnas L. Moore is announced as a candidate lor Sheriff of Abbeville County. He needs no recommendation from us. Ills competency Is acknowledged by all. and his loyalty to the Democratic party is known of ail men. Mr. Moore is the first candidate who has been announced in the papers, but we learn that others will soon be in the field The indications are that we will have an early canvass and a lively campaign. Couldn't Vet it in Tyj?o. We have much matter which we cannot get In type for this Issue, including correspond ence from Due West, Greenwood, Ninety Six Coronaca, Dyson, and other points. We are sorry, but we have done our best, and hope to be excused all round. Last Sunday was Easter. It was the most lovely day of the season, and every lady in town who had a new bonnet was at church, j The Episcopal church and the Methodlsl church were beautifully decorated, and services appropriate to the day wore hold In all the churches in town. ?

His display 01 dress goods, white goods and dress trimmings' surpassed anything ever exhibited In thU country. The store was crowded on Friday and Saturday with ladles from all parts of the county tradiug. Every oue went home with the idea that Mr. Bell deserved great credit for his selection cf such beautiful goods, and to sell at the very low price he oilers them ai In every department. To those that did not see the store we will say, it will be u perlect treat to visit it at any time, as Mr. Bell and his pollteasslstants will be glad to show them.

Wu cannot think that reasonable objection to Hit- uominees was the sole cause of tlu> holt, hut the f'rrssmul Jlttnncr believes thai buck of all tills lay opposition to the primary plan of making nominations. Ollicinl aspirants find it liardcr to manage the peopte than to control nominating conventions, and the small politician enjoys the brief authority in convention, where he may punish his enemies, reward his friends, or gratify his vanity. The growing popularity of the primary plan and the sure process of winning other tcrrito ries over to the primary plan is enough to alarm the convention people, and hence we presume this holt was inaugurated more us 11 threat against the primary plan than on account. of any real dissatisfaction with either ii... iw.niinui.i! 11,,. i ii.iitiii'niI ie itart v. j We cannot believe the movers ol the Bolt are tired of Democratic rule in South Carolina. That idea is not to be entertained for a moment, but we do believe thut the Molt was really to make the primary election plan odious before the people of the State. lie that as il may, however, the Boiling candidates were very decently knocked on tinhead, and the people of the State arc assured of the continued loyalty of the people of Columbia to the Democratic party. Col lunula has acted well. Despite the persecution of Smith, the caucusing against him, and the scheming to defeat liini, he headed the ticket, and received more votes than both I lie Hollers. The Democrats of Columbia have acted wisely. They have behaved nobly before Unpeople of the State and we have no doubt thai Mr. Smith will acquit himself with no discredit either to himself or to the good people of Columbia. THE METHODS BY WHICH THE SICK /. TIE ROBBED, AND HURRIED TO THIER GRAVES. A ton Wor<!s in tleply to Hit* Criticisms of Some ot? our KNlcnsioii Brethren?The Pros* an<l Kaiiuer by Rcliisiiit; Jo Advertise f'atoiit Medicines. Means no Reflection 011 Those who 1'Hkc Such AilvorliWIIieiltH. Editor Hugh Wilson, of tlic Press and Manner, writes acolumn and a half artiulc to toll the people what he does not know about consumption, compound oxygen, and various other patent medicine schemes. Editor Wil>ou takes some very queer views of some tilings, hut for all that he gets up a very good newspaper.?Sewben-y J hi aid and Sciv.i. The Edi or of the AObvvislc Press ami Manner, Mr. Hugh Wilson, is peculiar in more respects than one. He |>ul?lisli?-s au excellent paper; there is none bettor. He is unalterably opposed to advertising what he terms "t alent medicines,'' yet, strange to say, he docs a good deal ot lliat kind of business. in his last issue, under a large "horse-head," with "So tiering Humanity" as the caption, lie dilates to Hie extent ot a column and a quarter, in .-mull typo, (his favorite size) on Compound Oxygcu. in that lengthy eH'u-lon "Kditors, Preachers and Patent Medicines" come in l'or a full share of that ridicule for which the 1'rrss and Banner is so peculiar. The j'resx and Manner is especially caustic on ministers, and he "would warn the people against accepting for the truth any preacher's testimony as to the ellicacy of a patent medicine about which he knows nothing," <fcc. But the "most unkindest cut of all" is where he tells the pieaeher who siyns such ceriili- ' eates that "he may be honest enough," but he is a fool all the same; or rather that "he doesn't know what he is talking about." As we have said, the editor ot the Press and Banner is stoutly opposed to advertising patent medicines, yet iu the sumo issue of that paper in which appeared the lengthy free ad veriisemeui 01 compound oA^en, muic appeared a single patent medicine ailvcrltacinent which occupied the space of nearly throe! columns. Tliis huge "drummer'' for public patronage spread over tlie width oi three columns, and was adorned at Hie top by i beauiilul (?) female figure, in a reclining pos ture. This was only one of a dozen putdnt medicine advertisements appearing in the gaine isj-ue.?jMurcnaciUc Herald. In the flr?t place, the 1'rcss and ISmuier would thank the brethren for what they say of "a yood newspaper" and "au excellent newspaper." We Lave I lie highest regard for the brethren personally, and tlieir newspapers are not excelled by any which come to this ollice. Their iabois in journalism is most ell'ective, and their careers are marked by honor and conscientious conduct. For this reason, we regret that they do not see as we do in the matter of patent medicines. in the next place, we hope that It may not K.. /.xl <if nln.... IV.r tli.? mill Htiminr to rise tou question of privilege. The Herald and Sews is in error when ii cays thul we write "a column and a half article to tell the people what we do not know about consumption, compound oxygen, and various other patent medicine scheme." Friend, it would take volumes to tell what \ve do no! Anow on these subjects. The patent medicines which the Laureiisoi/le Herald finds advertised in the Press a>ul Manner are on the New York printed side. We presume every reader except t!,o.-e of our exchanges who are blind, are aware of litis j "act. liul whether they tire, or are not, it j inatteis nothing, we believe the mcdical advertisements are frauds and cheats lielieving as we do, and publishing our paper on a patent iuBide that publishes them, it is the more our duty to warn the people against every advertisement which proposes to cure the diseases which the best medical skill pronounce incurable. All advertisements of medicines to cure fits arc absolutely and positively iit variance with the testimony of every medical writer of decent intelligence. Thu fits cures are generally put up in "one dollar' or "two dollar" bottles. If the patient will take a prescription from any decent doctor, aud will accept the mcdiciuc from the drusui?t, in a brown paper, and furnish his own bottle tilled with wilier, lie can get lor ten cent*. the medicine lor which he must paj two dollars?itiul then it trill not cure fit*. 1 Jut the medical profession always prescribe something, and tiiev olten settle on something Unit will not kill outright. All advertisements proposing to cine consumption are delusions by which the sick are robbed, and by which the victims are hurried to the grave. Xodoctor worthy of the name, , would claim to cure consumption, and there is not a man on the face of the globe that could satisfy a committee of medical men of: intelligence that he had been cured of consumption. We all know of cases where men have been cured of such diseases as chill and fever, typhoid fever, pneumonia, and other kindred diseases, but did any man on the lace of the earth ever seen man who had been cured of consumption ? Consumption, as we undeistand, is a sloughing oti* of I ho lungs. Amputation of the limbs we understand to be cutting oil* of a part of the limb. Well, now, until we tlnd a patent medicine that will cause an arm or a leg to grow out to | its normal condition?from the "stump" of the ! amputated arm or leg?we need not expect to I IInd a patent medicine that will restore the 1 lost lung. l'ateni medicine men constantly herald a I) road instances where examinations after j death had proved tiiat the ulcerations ol" the ] lungs had healed over, and where the waste! of ttie vital part had been arrested. It is pos- j <ible that there may be one case in a million ; where such a result has been brought about, I.ill i. <rri.-il.il- fim.il.i.i- ....II ..... I.... 1 i -... I eases <>1 persons bciiig buried alive fan be pro-1 d need?if tliu after discovered position of tlie ' body is to be taken as conclusive evidence. Sonic stories would lend us to believe that a! great mass of the human raeeareburied alive. i \Ve all know that this is not true. The immediate stripping and placing of the suppon-1 ed dead person in the coldest place about the j house would kill iiini? even it he were not already dead. The physicians cannot euro consumption. I All that they can do?and that is much, and I of the greatest importance?is to a-lvise their I patients to obey the laws of health. If they : prescribe cod liver oil or emulsion it is merely to follow a formula from which 110 living soul has been benefitted. Cad liver oil is a 1 substance so vile and so repulsive, that not | I one stomach in a thousand will lone tolerate l it, and if cod liver oil could b? swallowed dai-! ly, there is less nutriment in a dose ot it than I I Il.ni.,. 1., t, vllirl.. ni'.lap . > > c 1 ..." fresh butter?ol* course our brethren know' I tluit cod liver oil is given as si nourishment,' ! as a food, aiul not because of any medical pro-. jierties it may contain. as to certificates. Many conscientious men, n<> doubt, j;ivc and sign certilieates to latent. medicines. But their certificates arc' worthless, and can deceive nobody except the Ignorant, or some poor unfortunate creature who may be struggling with the deadly ] assailant, and who may he willing to catch at a straw. Let us cite an instance of actual occurrence. A lady who had been sick for several months, and despairing of getting well! without medical treatment, sent lor the best doctor in the neighborhood. One lung was seriously aftected, and as other members of the family had died of consumption, the proof was clear thai she had consumption. I A long prescription of vllo stnll' was made. | The dru;;jjlst compounded the medicine. It was token to the patient. she declined toj lake a drop oi it. I n a liiontli or tu o she was I well. A.id atllioiiifli that has been years aao. ] she is to ail appf-araiiecs?and so tar as she! | knows?a pertcetl> healthy person. Now, it' she had tatcen a patent medicine Hi* cerlltl-! cate mi*:hi liave b^en K'ven. shucotiSd have I iiikIoiiIii that she had liail i-onstitii|itIon. Hit | doctor said <o. She knew thai she sot well. The reach rc.m see hy this that certilicute-givers may sometimes hy mistaken. Cut let our hrct'irea not misunderstand us. i It i-not- so much the patent m -diciuo l??j which ate opposed, as it is the liahil. which i people have of Uikiuir medicines which are not prescribed lor them hy an intelligent physician. The more ignorant class of people ?chiefly froir. reading patent medicine aclverlisetuents?have ticcome familiarized with I medicine, and presume to lake !l. themselves | and then urue others to run the same ri<-k. > If necessary, we could cite many instances A ' * ii.ik- oitmn tt\ /?iir invij kiinvvlpik'n. ! where death lias ensued from the wreck lens i giving of medicine. (>110 child, in (lie ineipicncy of typhoid fever, was given a liivc done of calomel. All the doctors oil the face of the globe couldn't keep llic grave from closing over her form. The father of a family, felt sick, and to save doctor's bill, thought he would take a big dose of "blue nin*s."' Forty doctors couldn't save him. Ills widowand fathcrlesschildrcn, now mourn and talk about the mysterious dispensation of divine Providence. They little dream that his ignorance in taking the "blue mass" destroyed his stomach and otherwise poisoned his vitals. A father of a bclored child, thought he would give him a dose of medicine when lie was ailing. That child, contrary to expectation, grew worse. A doctor was sent for, but the deadly work had been done. The child is in his.grave. These ire a few of tlie mistakes of laymen, or selfeonMilutrd ignoramuses who propose to take the life of their loved ones in their own inexperienced hands, tint .when it is known that doctors themselves kill us with their medicines and that <li uggists kill us by their mistakes, we think we arc admonished to let medicine alone. What shall we say of the man who will hold out hopes lo the sick, which are false, merely for the purpose of rubbing him, in the 11 iviiich <:m liuvt! no other el lecl than to hurry him to the crave. Let us cite a >triUiii>r instance, which came under our own knowledge. A man suil'crintf from one of those ailments for which the Oest ortho-lux medical men have found 110 euro, was impressed with the ccriirleutcs which he saw published fisto the otlicuty of a pa lent mediciiK', which ciaiine.l to be a specific lor tlie disease from which lie was suffering. In it was an extract which gave case to pain, hut tlie main iinrradient was exactly tlie opposite of what was needed in liis system, and its only effects were lull the pain while greatly aggravating the disease itself. A family of poore people in tins instance spent over fifty dollars lor a medicine, the practical elfect of which was to hurry the loved one to his grave. l'o you see anything monstrously evil in the giving of a certilicate which was instrumental in aiding a vampire to rob the patient in the sulc of medicine which Kent him hence? Isn't there something of infernal seoundrelifiin in the act of preying upon the vitals and purses of poor altlictcd iiumauity? Isn't there something wantonly wicked in holding out promises which ure as fair ns possible but which are in reality as falso as false can be. What shall we say of the preacher of the gospel who will go abroad over this fair land with a Hible in one coat tail pocket, and a bottle ol patent poison in the other? We arc sorry that our respected brethren of I aureus and Newberry should censure us in condemning what we believe to be an unmitigated fraud. While we use h patent inside tiiat gives publicity to these frauds, we shall occasionally warn our readers against them. I'hey know that we present to Ihein the printed inside as it is received by "us, and that while we are responsible for buying those -hceis, we are in no way responsible lor what appears therein. \\"e will say that wc refused SDi) to advertise the medicine last referred to. An acceptable advertisement of the same length would have been gladly taken at Si/0. We refused S12o iron safe to publish an advertisement, of a ijivuiuiiiv |ii wj?u.->v;u ivj vuiv cm mvuiahie (llKctise. These uro tlio larger offers, but none have been accepted of late years. In tills course we may be mistaken. We act for ourself, without in any way pretending toad* vise anybody as to t heir own course, It certainly should give the brethren noollonce, hoeflu.se the Press and Rannvr dO'-s not advertise patent medicines. We yield the whole business to others. They are welcome to It, but the course which we are pursuing is according to the dictates of our own conscience. If it were not so, we certainly would not refuse a prolltnble business. We should be pleased to hoar argument to Justify us in doing what we believe to be wrontf. What say you. Messrs.

Extracts from Christian Neighbor Anniversary?-They ami Wo. 1'ov some years last past some of our friends have been the chief speakers on Anniversary Occasions; (his time, tlie end of the first score of anniversaries, we, under a sense of gratitude and humility would speak something nursed f: Twenty years ago?April 2, 1S08?the first number of the Christian Nkigjijjok saw the light. Every twelve month since that time fif0 -two issues have been sent forth. On tlie nrsi oay 01 me x> Kiciimo.it s existence wo, of course, knew not wliat the next clay would bring forth much less what one year or twenty years might bring to pass. The conduction of our paper for this length of time has given ;i knowledge of men and things which we would not have had without such experience. Much of this knowledge is profitable and pleasant; some of it we would have preferred not to have, costing as it did more than it was worth. At the beginning we counted what it was thought would be the probable as well as the necessary cost of publication. Wo mean not onlv cost in money and in labor of niind and body but the unnecessary cost of delinquent subscribers. There has been unnecessary cost in other important respects besides that of dollars and cent?. But of these we care not now to speak, further than to .say that the sum of all kinds of cost, past and present do not at all change our purpose, God willing, to continue the publication of the Christian Neighbor even on. While some friends have weakened in their sympathy with the cause of peace and some have been diverted from substantial support of the Neiuiibor, others have taken their nlaces. These with friends who have been with us from the beginning ana others of like faith and firmness who have fallen in lino during the twenty years and who remain to lliis day are facts which persuade that our labor has not been in vain. "What is done is done. Circumstance, we know, justified the request of many of those who in time past were discontinued. Many of these have, Willi a chang? of circumstances, been reentered ob the list of subscribers. Others are coming. AVe do not conclude, nor have we ever concluded, that a man is opposed to the Nkicihbok because he does not subscribe; nor that he is opposed to the blessed Cause of Peace because he diH's not ioin tli? Ppurtfi iSoeietv. Men may or may not do the one or the other, as they choose, and they and we shall remain friends. Had we believed, twenty years ago, that the publication of the Christian Neighbor would occasion double the sum of pecuniary cost which it has and five times the amount of opposition and indifference with which we have contended we would not have hesitated to begin as we did, and coutinue as we have done. And now, thankful as we feel for divine and human help in the past, with the "same rule" and "same thing" before us, we enter to-morrow upon our twenty-first year?the banner of "peace and good will to men" being that under which we purpose to live, labor and end the warfare of life. The Easter Service by the Marion Street Sunday School, held in the church last tfabbath afternoon, consisting mainly of songs and recitations was quite pleasing t? the eyes and the ears of the large company of interested adults who were present. The children were neatly, not gaudily, dressed and went through the exercises in good order and without a balk. The decorations were expressive and in fine taste.
