: The Press and Banner ? 43**Pu hi talied every Wednesday at ?.? ti year in advance. Wednesday, August 1, 1888.1 I'lie Competitive* Drill. "Capt MeGowan.the Judges nre waiting lor yon" was the signal for the Abbeville Utiles to put on their war-paint and march to victory. At the command "fall in" the following picked squard answer to their names nnd went forth upon the parade ground t?> do their level best: W. C. MeGowan, Captain. A. W. Smith, First Lieutenant. S. C. Cason, Second Lieutenant. T.P. Cothran, First Orderly Sergeant. T. L. Douglass, Second Orderly Serjeant. Mcl>. Cuter, Third Orderly Sergeant. A. M. DuTre, Foulh Orderly Sergeant. G. H. Moore, Color Sergeant. Jas. McMillan, First Corporal. <i. H. Parks, Second Corporal. J. L. Perrin, Third Corporal. J. A. Allen, Fouth Corporal. R. L. Mabry, Fifth Corporal. W. A. Lyon .Sixth Corporal. W.A.Calvert, F. C. DuPre, 1>. W. Kcllar, Kdgar McMillan, T. L. Miller, Ij. K. Seal, W. D. Wilson. Tho rules required four sets of fours and two Sergeants. On Wednesday the Sumter Guards and the Carolina Rifles, of Charleston, and the Butler Guards and Greenville Guards, of Greenvillo. had entered the lists und performed their evolutions. The first two companies were well drilled and executed to commands in magnificent style. So much so that the hopes of the "bops" for llrst prize grew "small by degrees and beautifully less." The Greenville Guards had not done near so well and the Iiutler Guards were out of the race. The contest was regarded an close between the Greenville Guards and the Abbeville Rifles, for third place. When the latter inarched out ou the grounds. Thursday morning with every man in his place determined to put up the best In his shop, the applause was deafening. Inspired by the sympathies of the admiring crowd the boys went through every prescribed motion with wonderful skill. Time and again they were greeted with cheers as a dillicult movement was admerlbly executed. Their step was steady and the marching was done In splendid style. A "left w'eele" was particularly applauded. when the last movement was executed aud the company marched to barracks, and general feeling was that Abbeville had out done herself. During the suspense that followed the deliberations of the Judges, much speculation was indulged in as to the result. A false report that the Greenville company had out stripped us, cast a damper on our enthusiasm and made the boys feel pretty blue. This was soon dispelled; however, by the assurance from headquarters, that the Abbeville Rifles had come oft'with the 3rd prize. Then such a scene in the camp may be well Imagined. On the dress parade that afternoon the Captains of tho three successful companies were marched to the front, and the prizes awarded, shecks for S-'JOO, S200 and 8100 respectively. The Abbeville Rifles were the only company that contended against the city companies. and where there were 25 companies in camo, the distinction of being the best drilled company out of the city of Charleston, is no 6mall one. A word for tho behavior of the boys in camp. Gentlemen are gentlemen everywhere. Tills occasion was no exception to ??im rnlf> With llffi PnOUCllt tO Tender till' trip a delightful one there was not a single act that cast a reproach on the fair name ol this native town. The Greenville encampment will long be remembered as an occasion where polite aud gentle manners united with manly conduct. Fine fttock and Trade Stables. Our townsmen, Messrs. A. M. Hill & Sous are making important additions to their ul'. ready commodious sale and lively stable, and will be soou fitted up in the most superb manner for the accommodation of the stock trade next winter. Their 6table and sheds one of the largest in the up-country will accommodate same two hundred head o! horses and mules. Abbeville has long been noted as one of the best stock market in upper Carolina, and the Immense sales which were effected here last winter furnish only one proof that Abbeville is one of the best markets in the State. Abbeville is sixty miles from Augusta, Gil., and sixty miles from Greenville^ S. C., and is midway between Anderson and Edgefield. and between .Laurensand Washington. With a large territory to suppls*, the demand fur stock is alwuys good. Unite Mick. Mr. W. T. Branch, candidato for Sb prill, has been quite sick for several days. This accounts for his absence from the last two 01 three public meetings. It is to be hoped that his friends will bear this fact in mind, and not let hits prospects for election be lessened because of his misfortune in getting sick in the most important part ef the canvass. - T.

Editor Press and llanner : Believing it to be for tho public good, t lint the reform measures proposed by the farmer's movement take some practical shape, that Is, they are to furnish us as good if not better management at two thirds of the present expense of ilicoltlclnl incumbents. I can see no reason why we should not avail ourselves of their services, and being one that holds no allegiance to any particular clique, but willing to yield obedience to the authorities t lint lie, nevertheless would prefer to serve and be served by those that cost the least. Let us try practical men and practical measures, by putting those in office that are competent aud willing to perform the duties at the least expense?men that are not absorbed in the pomp and splendors of wealth and high living, but those that see from the stand point of economy and frugality; therefore I nominate Gen. It. 11. Hemphill for Governor on this platform, believing that It would be wise to elect him and a full ticket pledged to the reform measures suggested. Respectfully, \VoOl, IIAT. The Democratic County club will meet on Monday the 01 h Angus. Delegates to the State Convention which meels in Columbia SeptemberCth will bo elected.

Mr. lliggins and wife, went to Greenville on .last Saturday. They will spend a week or more in the mountain city. D. V. Sharp leaves to-morrow for Tila, Texas, where lie will spend a month with his family. Mrs. it. II. MeCrary has been visiting friends 011 old Mulbury. Mr. Hilton, of Ninety-Six, is visiting his daughter, Mrs. W. Henry Moore. T. o. Alexander, of Lagrange, Ga., is now on a visit in this suction to his parents and friends. \V\ C. McGee is at home tor the summer. Miss Emma Kiley, will spend a few days this week, at Honea Path with friends. She lef t on last Saturday. M. 15. McGee and \V. C. McGee, attended a union meeting at lJroad Mouth on Saturday and Sunday. Greenville's gala week, will draw a good many from this neighborhood. They will leave to-morrow and next day. The debating society meets every afternoon at 5 p. m., at W. J. McGee's store. Politics and eandidates are discussed. Our couutry is fast filling with orators. "Pickwick" is somewhat mistaken when he says that "our section," almost as a unite endorse the report of the expert, and want the Augean stables cleaned. The expert has many warm admirers iu this section, who admire him tor the work he has done. Also lor ably defending lilmsclf in the newspapers controversies, but will they endorse lianas the loth August will tell. Mauy of our neighbors do not believe that " u LI1U ".'lUKt'UIl biuuio MIUIUU UU uwuugu uuv* will not lielp cleaa them. The Democratic meeting at DonaidsviUe, which was a joint meeting of the Donaldsyille and Walnut Grove clubs was a success. A large crowd was present to hear the speakers, we will make no comments on speeches tor fear will do some candidate some unintentional injustice?but will say that It is well that none of them, thought like the Press and Manner, who "could not see why tho question propounded by the farmers club, should be answered before a mass meeting of the Democracy of any portion of Abbeville county." We would like to know who the Democracy of Abbeville are? Every one seemed willing to answer the farmers questions, and It is well they did?any one who refuses we will eertaiuly leave at home. Dr. W. T. Jones was chairman of tho meeting, he introduced each speaker in a neat and appropriate little speech. Music was furnished by two colored bands. At 1 o'clock dinner was served. The good ladies of Donaldsville and Mulbury, and prepared many goou things for the inner man, which all enjoyed. The speaking was continued until about 4 p. m. This meeting will long be remembered. We attended tlie meeting at Hodges on Friday. Governor Richardson made a tine speech?at times he soared aloft, and reached the heights of the grandest eloquence, he can certainly oc termed a ''silver tougued orator." It was not our privilege to hear Mr. Mauldin. When Tillman rose to speak, he was greeted by long and continued applause, and by hooping, by the farmers hoop. He certainly "got there.'' He told us of our wants, the way to get them, of our heavy taxation, how to relieve ourselves. It wood take too much space for mo to comment on his speech and could not do him justice. He has certainly a long head, a tongue he is not afraid to use, and the grit to back him up. He too at times was eloquent. We hope some day not far 111 the future to see him Governor of old South < arollna. Wc wish every farmer in Abbeville county could have heard him. If - ? Hu. larmers ever i;.\|jvci> w uiwui^unu mc v.*, sire, they must come closer together, if we unite we c:iu have laws made that will benefit every farmer. We have heard plenty of political speaking for one summer, we are glad the primary is almost here. NAVILLUS. mm * ? NEWSPAPER MONOPOLIES. Let till I'ny Tribute to the Xc?? and Courier. ll'iMsiioro yews ami Herald. The tendency of the times is to monopolize in every lines of business, and while the press, as a rule, has always fought these monopolies, It itself is not free from them, one prominent instance is that of certain New York papers, which formed a "trust" to raise the prices of their papers, and another is the granting ol a charier in this State to ccitaln parties to manufacture, lease, use, or permit to be used, certain appliances used in the printing business. To correctly understaud the bout of the corporation, the reader should know that certain machines have been invented for setting type and distributing it, and have been successfully nsed in oflices in several cities of Hie Nortn. By the terms of the charter the company will have exclusive control of these machines and others in this SUite. which of course will prevent any competition. Publishers in this Slate will be exposed to this monopoly ami cannot use such machines unless the price of the company is paid. The price may'be reasonable or it may not, according to the pleasure of the company, but corporations have no souls or consciences either, and everything this company controls will most likely be soul at a high rate. It is knowu as the Typographic Company, aud its corporation* are all connected with the yews anil Courier. Tnrtnry Tarts. Tartaiiy, S. C., July 30,1SSS.

X. c'AMiorss Township, July, loisss.

F OLD VIRGINIA SCHOOL, write for a cat Extracts from Christian Neighbor "If a man be commanded by God to do any action whatsoever, he can string up his will to do it. J>ut when certain sentiments and disposition are required of him, which involve a thorough change of the heart's natural propensities, that is another matter. The affections are far less under the will's control than the actions are." l)r. Uoulbum, One of ller Majwly'* Chaplain.s in Ordinary. The above paragraph hints at one of the fundamental differences between the Christian and the man of the world who is cited as a model. In the single matter of almsgiving how often are we vailed on to compare tho conduct of men of the world with that of "you church people." How often do actors make large contributions to help a disabled fellow actor. Cases are now and then made known of gamblers giving their ill-gotten fains to some benevolent enterprise. Here, say some, is practical Christianity, worth more than volumes of the songs and prayers of "you church people." Generosity in the matter of money is one of the easiost of graces to practice, generosity in judgement of anothers actions or possible motives is a more difficult thing. What we call human kindness is with some almost instinctive. If a case of illness occurs in a community and help is needed in watching there is little or no dificulty in finding those who are ready to give time and strength to the task, but it does not follow that these good Samaritaos are equally kind in otiier respects, iney win muse you, but they will also go away with so perfect an acquaintance with your domestic 'and family affairs that the story takes very long in the telling, so long that the foundation facts are forgotten and imagination creates others without difficulty. To "do your neighbor a kindness" is one thing; to love him is another and harder. To refuse to resent an injury is not easy; to forgive it and in a sense forget it is even less an easy task. To show one self cheerful "when troubles assail seems well nigh impossible ; to be oheerfuiis a.privilege which too many Christians refuse to enjoy. And if it is a christian privilege is it not also a christian's duty? It behooves christians everywhere and at all times to guard the affections not less than the actions which represent them to the world. -imixsTOx. S. (J.. Julv 30. 1888. Monday morning. Dear Neighbor : Everybody is thankful for the good rain tiiat fell last night on this town and, I suppose, for miles around. Following as it did four days and nights of worship and business of puffing, fanuing and sweating, the* spirits of the citizens and "delegates" were refreshed even as were the wilted and parched plants of the thirsty gardens and fields. Johnston is alive town all the time and is taking on and in more life all the time. Besides her?19 or 20 stores, five church buildings, academy, &c., there is the Weekly Edgefield Monitor, with the level headed and independent editor, E. W. McLenna, who is also Mayor of the town. There will soon be one if not two banks established in this same town. From Friday morning to Monday I did not see or hear of a drunken man nor breathe a liquor-tainted atmosphere any where I went. I was in a number of business-houses and also the homes of friends and walked more or less on nearly every one of the more public streets of the town. Not that I IJJIU Il() iiume IU SUty ut uut Iiciviniiig some of the many invitations of old friends to call to see them. With Brother L. II. Smith, delegate from Upper St. Matthew, I had and enjoyed the warm-hearted hospitality of the home of my old frieud, that same McLenna who still turns out mill stones from the celebrated Cloud's Creek quarry to grind corn and wheat even in this and other States of the Union, even as he occasionally grinds up a politician or such like in the Monitor ?exceeding fine. These Johnstonians handled the Conference in fine style from the beginning to end, and appeared willing to keep on but the grip sacks, umbrellas and streaming dusters on the streets this morning drifting to the Ut'|)ol wmill'u LU ?<!,)' hjuic 10 auiiiciuiiig else to do after the pleasures and profits of a District. The meeting with friends of nearly forty years standing and with many young people who came up and let nie know that they were the sons and daughters of my old friends?some gone, some still living, all this anil much else like it was refreshing even somewhat enibrrrassing to my old? young heart. Besides the pleasure of meeting my brethren in Conference and hearing from others able and edifying sermons and addresses, my visit to town of Johnston is one of the evergreen spots of my pilgrimage. S. II. 1J. Happiness depends not on what one ha*, hut on what ono is. Ho who is of a cheerful spirit will he cheerful in in all his privations. He who is of a complaining spirit will never Jack occasions of complaining. I' is not one's posessions or one's surroundings, hut one's way of looking at his possessinus and surroundings, that settles the question of one's eherrfulncss, wherever he is, or whatever ho has. It may be said that the hardest thing in the world is to do right one's self and the easiest thing in the world is to see where others fall short of doing just right. IALE INSTITUTE. 20, 1888.

The body convened for business on Thursday, 1) a. m., in the Methodist church, Dr. S. 13. Jones, presiding. A. M. Boozer was elected Secretary, Rev. (>. I'. Watson Assistant Secretary. On roll call 59 clerical and lay members answered. This number was swelled to 50 or more during the sessions. Thespiritual condition of the Church in the District as reported called forth expressions of gratitude to Almighty God. It was determined to emphasize family prayer more than ever. Reports showed manifest improvement in Sunday Schools all over the District. An interesting discussion as to trie importance 01 parents snowing more interest in this department of church work evinced a commendable interest on the part of the members of the Conference. The reporton Sunday Schools urged that the churches should unite with the school in studying the Word of God. The pastors were requested to do all they possibly can to organize each school into a Missionary Society according to the provisions of the Discipline. The financial report showed a moving up along the line?nearly one-half of the salaries of the preachers had been paid. Instructive addresses 011 education were made by Prof. J. G. Clinkscales, of Columbia Female College, and by President Carlisle, of Wofford College. The Conference and audience as well were much impressed with the sound practical views delivered in their hearing. D. G. Ruff, J. D. Eidson, L. D. Childs and D. T. Barr were elected Delegates to the Annual Conference. J. H. Counts, J. H. Huiet, Dr. Z. A. Smith and Dr. A. S. Abnev wereelect ed Alternates. Columbia was selected as the place for the next District Conference. RESOLUTION OF THANKS. Ky a rising unanimous vote of the Conference it was Resolved, That we return our sincere thanks to the people of Johnston and vicinity for their kind and hospitable entertainment during our slay among them. It was also Resolved, That the resolution of thanks be published in the Edgefield Monitor, the Southern Christian Advocate and the Christian Neighbor. A. M. B., Secretary. How to Make Yonrself Unhappy. In the first place, if you want to make yourself miserable, be selfish. Think all the time of yourself and your things. Don't care about any llling GUSt'. X1UVU I1U lui nuj one but yourself. Never think of enjoying the satisfaction of seeing others happy, but rather, if you see a smiling face be jealous lest another should enjoy what you have not. Envy every one who is better off iu any respect than yourself; think unkindly toward them, and speak lightly oi them. Be constantly afraid lest some should encroach upon ypur rights ; be watchful against it, and if any one comes near your things, snap at him like a mad dog. Contend earnestly for every thing that is your own, though it may not be worth a pin ; for I your rights are just as much concerned as if it were a pound of gold. Never yield a point. Be very sensitive aud take everything that is said to you in playfulness in the most serious manner. Be jealous of your friends lest they should not think enough of you; and if at auy time they should seem to neglect you, put the worst construction upon their conduct you can.? Christian Weekly. We cannot have couscience void of offense toward God unless we have consciences void of offense toward men, and vice versa. Piety and morality are inseparably linked when it conies to being entirely void of offense. A hypocrit can be neither, pious nor moral?whatever he may claim or profess. If we lie and cheat and steal ?if we are not bluest and honorable ?if we do not pay our debts when it is in our power?if we contract debts without the probability of paying them?we are neither pious nor moral. We may profess holiness, but we are on a level with heathens?not quite up to some heathens. He that provides not for his own is worse than a heathen or than an infidel. What is the use of a man going everywhere and posing as a holiness evangelist when everybody around his home is crying out that he neglects his family, temporally, socially, and spiritually. A holiness that will not allow?yes, that will not make?a man and wife live together in peaee (if not in mutual admiration) is not a good kind to display much in public.

Mr. llenry Bergh is responsible for tho following vigorous statement f * "* ^ Mr. Fleming, army veterinary in* ^ spector, gives the following twelve reasons against the bearing-rein : 1. It is an unnecessary expense to 'Jjhm purclia.se it. 2. It adds to the weight of the ha** *1 ncss and the time required to clean it. 3. 11 wearies the head and neck of . M the horse by the constrained, unnat- '4 ural position in which they are fixed: 4. It spoils* the appearance of the horse, and largely detracts from his ; c. free and graceful movements. 5. The long-continued pressure en * the lower jaw tends to give the animal a hard mouth, and therefore renders it M less obedient to the driver's rein. 6. It does not prevent stumbling, but, on the contrary, predisposes the horse to fall], and with much more severity than if it were not used. - , * 7. In hot weather or during extreme exertion it may directly or indirectly . produce an attaek of giddiness orapoplexy?the last probably terminating in death. S. In heavy draught, in addition to ''frM the torture it occasions, it causes a , ' ; large portion of the horse's power to *'"[ be lost, from the animal being unable to get his head and neck, down, and thus to throw more of the weight of his body into the collar. 9. The powerful muscles which pull forward the shoulders and indi- * rectly the fore limbs, and which are attached to the head and neck, are by - " it placed in the least favorable position for exercising their function, so that the horse's action as well as its speed and strength are impaired from this mechanical disadvantage. 10. It causes pain and distress inJs breathing. 11. It tends to distort the upper part of the wi ad-pipe and causes "roaring." 12. It frets the temper of nervous r t and excitable horses, and shortens the lives of all. We will conclude with the words of * Mr. George T. Augell, president of the ^ Massachusetts Society for the Preven- * tion of Cruelty to Animals, as they V , * echo the result of our own investigatious, and as we share his convictions that the real reason why this cruelty lias not been remidied i? simply because so many persons have never vthought about it: ^ T: -i"Tbe foregoing are only a fewJ|of many European and American authorities, which I have found to the same effect, and I have searched the books in vain for a single line to the contrary." "I can only conclude, as the result of my examinations, that the custom ? of tying up horse's heads with checkreins, like the custom of bleeding calves before they are killed, is a relic ./ i i ! a. _i;i x ? or Daruarisuj, couirary auKe 10 common sense and scientific opinion, and which has been permitted to exist so long because it has been no body's busiuess to call public attention to it." ~ Via The daily "papers of Montgomery, Ala., have ceascd to send out Sunday issues. And yet we have not read that the people of Montgomery, Ala., are all either dead or crazy. This demonstrates that sane people can survive the absence of the newspaper for twenty-four hours. Indeed, Montgomery, ? Ala,, has taken a step upward in morals which one can only wish and pray may l)e an example to be followed by other cities of this the "greatest coun- ^ try under the sun." That alone Is great which God approves, the Chris- ^ liau people determine to withdraw a . their patronage in every way from the Sunday paper it will "go."

For safety the missionaries were all called in from the country. The Corean officials who were said to have been privy to the deed were decapitated in the streets. -3# ? flatter Go Slow.
