The Edgefield Medical Society v/ill
meet at Edgefield on the I .it ii inst.
Club Meeting's.
Democrats, attend your club meet
ings on next Saturday, herein fail not.
To Lock Horns.
Tillman and Sheppard will lock
horns at Edgefield on the 23rd inst, j
Yofl will come, reader, won't you?
Down Wrong.
Clerk of Court J. C. Williams says
they had him down wrong. See his
card in another column.
Big Mouth Democrats.
Let all the big mouthed Democrats
come to the meeting at this place on
the 23rd inst., and make the welkin
ring.
Only One.
Of all the people from the county in
town on Monday of this week, sales
day, we met only one man who was
not going to vote for Tillman.
Our Communications.
A column of county correspondence
will be found on our outside this week.
"Sure Pop." Phyllis, "O," are their
respective noms de plume. The balance
of our correspondence ?sou the inside.
Au Edgefield Boy,
Rev. A. W. Lamar, a Beech Islarid
Edgefield boy, has been called to the
pastorate of the Virst Baptist church
in Galveston, Texas.
Dcntli of Mr. Manget.
Mr. S. II. Manget, of Trenton, died
at his home on last Wednesday, and
was buried the following day at Edge
field by tht Knights of Honor. All
Edgefield turned out to do honor to
her.former citizen. Mr. Manget left
a wife and one son.
Goats Versus Sheep.
The Sheppardites having been called
"Sheep" Democrats by the Columbia
Register, the Greenville News and The
State, to retaliate, dub the Tillinanites
.'Goat" Democrats. Apropos of this
nomenclature, Mr. Pearce Stevens, of |
Eulala, says that goats can live on
pine tops and butt the sheep oil the
. bridge every day in the year.
Ten to One.
Our correspondent, "One Gallus,"
says in a communication herewith,
that "Tillman will beat Sheppard ten
to one in Gray township. We dis-j
trusted the judgment of "One Gallus" j
until we made personal investigation, j
after which we became satisfied that
he ii correct-Gray township has a
voti ng strength of 250, of these Gov.
Sheppard will receive 18 votes.
Not Permissible.
Scurrilous attacks upon candidates
will find no place in the columns of J
The ADVERTISER during the campaign
of 1892. It must not be supposed that j
because this paper supports Tillman
that it will permit its columns tc be
used for such kind of attacks upon his
competitor. Legitimate criticism, sar
casm, ridicule, severe wur iy castiga
tion is all right if it doesn't degenerate
into a dissection of perscnal diameter
and peculiarities, but when it gets
thar low down we must call a halt.
Acreage Reduced.
From all we can gather by inter-]
views with farmers, and our own
knowledge, we have come to the con
clusion that the decrease in acreage of
cutten to be planted in Edgefl?ld
county will be 30 per cent., and t :iat
the decrease in fertilizers will bc a!
still greater per cent. The sale of J
roules in Edgefield this season hasn't
been half what it ?vas last year. AU
the*.? facts indicate that the farmer is
goiug slow. It may be because he
can': do otherwise, but he is certainly
going it slow-like Dan Purifoy's
yearling.
Thc Game Law.
For the benefit of those interested
-we publish below the game law that is
now in force in this State: "It shall
nor be lawful for any person in this
State, between the first day of April
?nd "he first day of November in anv
year hereafter, to catch, kill, or injure,
orto pursue with such intent, or to
Cell or expose for sale, any wild tur
key, partridge, quail, woodcock or
pheasant; or, between the first day of
Jlfarch and the first day of August,
any dove; or at any time during the
year, to catch, kill or injure, or to pur
sue with such intent, by firelight, any
of the birds named in this sec
tion. And any person so doing shall
be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor,
and upon conviction thereof shall be
??ned not more than $20 or be impris
oned not more than thirty days.
.Tildy Smith's Booster.
"Somebody stole Tildy Smith's roos
ter." This is the startling news one of
Our reporters brought us the other
day with the request to publish, in the
hop1 that the sinful wretch who did
the deed would see it and fetch him
back. Tildy says the rooster "wasn't
doin' nothln' to nobody. He was just
m-settin' on the fence waitin' for day
to crack so he could crow." Tildy says
if she could get hold of the black son
of Ham who took that rooster away
fron his home and his friends she
would snatch him as bald headed as a
buzzard. Tildy has now two hens and
no rooster, and she is undecided as to
whether she will sell out her stock of
bens or go out into the markets of the
World and purchase a rooster.
A Disastrous Fire.
T?e following account of Mr. Whit
Shaffer's loss by fire we clip from the
News and Courier: On Sunday night,
27tr ult., while Mr. Shaffer and family,
Who live near Meeting Street in Edge
Held county, were on a visit to his
wife's parents, near Johnston's, his
dwelling, barn, stables, fowl house, in
fact every building on his place was
consumed by fire. Xot a thing was
saved. Everything he possess?d was
completely destroyed. Of course it is
believed to have been the work of an
incendiary. No insurance. His loss
is indeed a heavy one. Mr. Shaffer is
a young farmer. About three weeks
ago he married a Miss Scott and had
just moved in with his young bride,
ind it was while they were on theil
firs" visit to her parents they returned
Only to find their new home a heap ol
rtfres.

Buncombe Wasn't In lt.
MR. EDITOR : In a recent issue
you make a statement of a lie
that originated in Buncombe being
pursued by truth. Now Buucombe
is quite innocent, "Justice" started
out with seven yard boots instead
of seven league boots, and made
such rapid progress that it hailed
the lie, if so it was, and made it
stop long enough to say it lived on
the other side of the branch and
that it had been travelling so long
over there that when it reached
Buncombe it was stale and com
pletely fagged out. JUSTICE.
A Card from Clerk Williams.
I hear that the report is being
circulated that I propose to
support the anti-Reform or
anti-Tillman morement in the
coming campaign. My personal
and politcal views have nothing
whatever to do with my faithful
ness and efficiency as a public
officer, yet I have no desire to
conceal my personal opinion ; and
take this opportunit to say to the
people of Edgefield County that
I supported the Reform movement
from the very outset, and, believing
that the interests of the people
will be best promoted by the con
tinued success of the Reform
party, I expect to remain true to
my convictions in the matter in
this campaign.
J. C. WILLIAMS.
Riglets from Sand Hill.
MR. EDITOR: Some townfop
passed up the road yesterday and
told a negro that John Sheppard
was a candidate for President.
Now, Mr. Editor, we live in the
back woods, don't know what is
going on like you town folks do,
so please tell us if Sheppard is a
candidate for President. We told
the negro that it must be for Gov
ernor, but he said not. We heard
up here some time ago that Shep
pard and some more of our old
bosses were going to have a little
convention in Columbia some time
in March to see if they could not
fix up some plan to get in power
again. We hope it is not so, foi
we are all in favor of Sheppard foi
President, but if he is a candidate
for Governor w( are solid for Ben
Tillman. Ben will beat Sheppard
ten to one in Gray township foi
Governor; you can bet your bottom
dollar on that.

MR. EDITORS Well, here it is
again ! We mean the .weather, and
a heap of other things of note.
j We are having spring weather, and
it's a good time for fishing.
When I go a-fishing,
1 always keep a-wishing,
With all my might
For %h to bite.
We are glad to note that the
fruit crop in this section was not
all killed during the cold snap,
and we are almost ready to predict
a crop of delicious fruit for the
year 1892.
The farmers have been hauling
fertilizers this week by the "dead
loads,*' to put under corn, we
hope, so that in the future they
may board and live at the same
place.
Prof. J. H. Lewis had a prohibi
tion contest in his school last Fri
day. Miss Achsa Story won the
prize-a silver medal. The second
contest in May is for the gold
medal. God speed the day when
prohibition shall have gained the
victory all over this broad land of
ours! Then we shall have happy
homes.
Mr. Calvin Whittle, of the piney
woods, has gone to California. We
wish him great success on his long
tour.
Talking about politics, we are
sorry for those antis, but more so
for Mr. Sheppard, their tool. We
did hope to see Mr. Sheppard rise
above a common anti, but poor
man, he has gone and done it. All
ocean's waters can't wash it
out. It is too bad, Mr. Editor,
for such a man as Mr. Sheppard
to be ruined by those antis and to
kill himself politically. However,
we guess he's satisfied, for hasn't
he been working for two long years
for this very consummation? How
could Mr. Sheppard stand before
his God and people and say "it
has sought me, I have not sought,
the office." However, he will have
to seek it right smart now before
he gits it, for we farmers will
never go back on Ben Tillman and
will vote for him again.
Mr. Keitt, of Newberry, wants
us to believe that Gov. Tillman is
a fearful fraud, but we think as
well of him as we did two years
ago. If he was fit to follow then,
he's good enough now. If the
principles advocated by the reform
pai ty were good two years ago
they are good yet, and we call upon
our fellow farmers to stand by Ben,
for if you fail to do this you'll be
ruled by "ringstere." Let us do
our duty and God will give us the
victory.
Yours most respectfully,
JOHN BLAKE.

BIG FIRE!
Seventy-Five Thousand Bales of
Cotton Consumed-Over
One Thousand People
Homeless.
NEW ORLEANS April 4.-New
Orleans was visited yesterday hy
two of the worst fires in the city'?
history. Eleven blocks of build
ings were destroyed, involving ti
loss of $3,600,000. Both fires were
the result of carelessness, and
would have been trivial but foi
the extreme dryness, which .wat
the result of a long drought, ?
high wind and the inadequac)
of the fire department. The latte]
was reorganized in January fron
the volunteer to the pridt
department system, and th?
number of tho firemen was reducec
about nine tenths.
The first fire started about 1(
o'clock, in a pile of cotton in fron
of the fireproof compress at th<
corner of Tobii and Fronttstreets
Some one thre \ lighted cigaretti
in the pile, wi; ina few mom
ents was bur % fiereely Thi
flames quickly their way int?
the compress t iiug, where 12,
500 bales of co' i were stored
The air was soon filled wit!
masses of burning cotton, whicl
communicated the flames to th
adjacent structures.
The Shipper's cotton pres?
where 30,000 bales of cotton wer
stored, was the next, to go, an<
the Orleans compress, with 25,00
bales, soon followed. While th
firemen were combatting flames ii
the Orleans compress, the walls
suddenly gave way, and Capt.
DuPree, Lieut. Shaw and Pipe
man Bordeaux were buried in
the ruins. All were seriously and
possibly fatally injured.
The Indepence cotton yards had
been engulfed, and the fire covered
an area of five squares.
The Baldwin agricultural works
and the Louisiana rice mills four
squares distant, were ignited by
the masses of burning cotton
which filled the air, but after a
hard fight both buildings were
saved without serious loss.
A panic prevailed in the vicinity
of the fire, whieh was close to the
residence districts, and people
livnig many blocks distant began
fleeing for their lives, carrying
what few belongings they could
I gather up in their haste.
TEN STATES STORM SWEPT. I
The Havoc Wrought by Fri
day's Tornado.
CHICAGO, April 5-Reports of yes
terday's storm show it to have been
the most general as to the extent
of terri tory for many years. The
Stare of Kansas, Colorado, Ne
braska; Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin,
Illinois, Missouri, Texes and
ndiana were swept by a furious
storm of wind, rain and hail, in
some places rising, to the force of
a tornado,-and nowhere falling
below the danger line of velocity.
TERRIBLE1 HAVOC in KANSAS.
KANSAS CITY, April 2.-With
the going down of the wind, the J
telegraph is again brought into
service, and the storm stricken
district of Kansas is heard from.
The wire service is still very bad,
but there is enough news coming j
in to show that the terribie work
?was far reaching and very
destructive. A careful estimate
regarding the number of killed
aud wounded throughout the State,
the result of the winds havoc
makes if nearly 100 killed and
between 200 and 300 injured.
The reports are: South Haven,
8 dead and 32 wounded ;| Walling
ton, 4 dead and 23 injured; on
farms between these two towns, 5
dead and 9 injured; Towanda, 17
dead and 45 wounded; Angusta,
7 dead and 19 injured; Homestead,
5 dead and 7 injured ; Strong City,
2 dead and 8 wounded; Salina, lo
injured, 3 fatally. These towns are
the only ones from which anything
like a definite report has been
obtained, and the possibilit?s are
that when the western towns and
villages are heard from the death
list will be swelled to nearly
100.
Among the strange stories told
of the queer actions of the wind is
that of Miss Ella Thornton, of I
Towanda, who was blown away by
the storm and carried a distance of I
half a mile, carrying a pillow. She
was blown through the side of a|
wrecked barn and deposited on
the back of a horse unhurt.
SEVEN KILLED AND MANY INJUKED.
TOPEKA, Kas., April 2.-Seven
persons were killed and over a
dozen others badly injured by
the tornado of Thursday night in
the little town of Wamego. The
storm levelled the house of Albert
Eggers and carried the inmates a
distance of 200 feet. The body of
Mrs. Eggers was found at
considerable distance from the
ruins of her home. The body of |
her youngest child was tightly
clasped in her arms.
STILL HIDDEN.
The Prophet, However, Say? the
Period of Judgment
has Begun.
NEW HAVEN, CONN, March 29-|
"The long sought star, hiding the
sun," which Lieutenant Totten
prophesied would appear today, |
when the last week of the anti
Christ begins, did not, so far as is j
known, put in an appearance.
The lieutenant was out on the
streets today, and did not appear j
fearful of the closing day of grace |
in his calendar. He said in an
interview : "This is the first day of j
Nisan-the first day of the new]
sacred Jewish year. It begins the
final seven years which lead up to j
the end of the 2,520 years assigned |
to the' time of .the Gentiles.'
I have changed none of I
my views expressed in thef
music hall lecture at Boston
on March 20th. I believe that
we are upon the borderland, the
threshold of an era, as it were, 'a
week of years, i ir- which men's
hearts will be tried by fire,
symbolically understood. I am
so generally misunderseood, that
aside from my authorized printed
notes, I alway hesitate to increse
the confusion by interviews.
Nothing except death will close
my mission and my voice. I wait
events calmly, and with concern
inexpressible for those who pro
nounce my warnings vagaries, and
condemn them without investiga
tion. It is a period of judgment]
that we have entered. It will be
systematic and increase geomet
rically, as did the seven years of
famine in Egypt. At their
terminatioon, you will remember,
there was one man who owned
Egypt-land, cattle, men and
river. A word to the wise ?B
snfficient."
The report has just reached
heru that the town of Barnhill,
seven miles south, was almost
entirely wiped out by a cyclone
this afternoon. It is thought no
one was fatally injured, though
several were said to be badly hurt.
No further particulars have been
recived.-Augusta Chronicle.
Yesterday morning, early, fire
destroyed nearly every house in
Milton. Santa Rosa County.
Loss $ 38,00.
A special to The Star fr ?rn
Cherryvale, Kan., says the
countary a mile ea^t of Cherry val
was struck by a tornado, about 10
o clock last night, and half a
dozen houses were demolished,
two people names unknown, being
killed. More storms are predicted.
HE GOT THE CHICKEN.
A Brave Barnwell Soldier Who
Wouldn't Stlirve.
An old gentleman who lives
near Grahams, and who fought
bravely in Hagons Brigade, Capt
Graham's Company during the
war, was taken, sick during the
second battle of Manassas, and
was left'for dead on the field.
He revived, however' and
searched diligently among the
haversacks for something to eat.
He finally found a "few crackers
and lived on them five "days.
Exhausted, wearied,' burning with
fever and pinched by starvation,
he went boldly up to a stately
mansion in Pennsylvania. A
woman with a pistol appeared at
the door.
The old Confederate pulled his
hat and said, "Madam, I am
starving. Can't you give rae
something to eat? If you will only
give me one of these chickens
running around here I may
live."
She raised her pistol and said,
uGo away from my premisas, you
trifling rebel, or I will shoot
you."
Crumbling a little piece of the
cracker on the ground he called
the chickens around him, and
reaching down he picked up one,
Then turning to the woman he
said, "Madam, I have never stolen.
You are here surrounded by plenty
and I am starving. I don't believe
it is a sin for me to take this
chicken. You can shoot if you
want to, and if God wants me to
die I am ready."
He walked away, and ns he wa*
going down the lane the cruel
woman fired at him live times, but
all the bullets went wide of the
mark. He broiled that chicken
without salt and rejoined the
array at Richmond.-Bamberg
Herald.
Legal Suicide.
Not to c8peak lightly of grave
subjects, Oregon has put the beer
on her murderers. The man who
kills another and ia convicted of
murder is seutenced to death as
in other states, but is made to
hang himself. The hanging takes
place there amid all the lugubrious
surroundings which are common
to the death penalty elsewhere,
The striking difference, we are
informed, is in the supreme mo
ment-the execution itself*
Instead of the sheriff, or some
hired deputy, having to hang the
culprit by a spring trap, touching
a trigger, or driving off a horse,
the gallows is automatic, and the
victim is his own executioner.
The hanging takes place in the
"execution room" of the jail, in
the presence of fourteen persons
certain designated officers, a
spiritual adviser chosen by the
prisoner, and a jury of six reputable
citizens of the State. The hanging
contrivance which is said to beat
electricity, is thus described.
As the prsonor enters the execu
tion room and has finished his
consultation with his spiritual
adviser, the blank cap is placed
over his head, the noose is
adjusted, and he advances to a
position on a small piece of carpet,
about four feet square which is
placed directly in the centre. This
carpet covers one end of the fatal
machine. While there is nothing
suspicious about this carpeted
spot, it is a small platform separate
from the rest of the floor. Below,
it rests on the end of a long lever,
the opposite end of which is in an
adjoining room. In this ad
joining room are two large pails.
The upper pail contains about
forty pounds of water, a rubber
tube connect it with the pail
below, and the water starts to
flow at the opening of a valve.
This pail of water is fastened to
one end of a steel bar, at the other
end of which is a thirty-pound ball
of iron, held in its position hythe
heavier weight at the other end.
To this ball of iron is attached a
rope passi?g upward and over a
pulley into the wall where a trigger
holds a weight of 225 pounds in
position. This weight is also
securely fastened to a rope which
seems to disappear over the ceiling.
The other end of this rope is the
one at which the condemned man
is standing.
Unconscious of what he is doing,
he steps on to this small bit of
carpet. His weight moves the
lever under the floor. By this
the valve in the pail of water
is opened. Noiselessly the water
pases through the rubber tube into
the empty pail. The ball of iron
is released from its position. It
jerks out the trigger holding the
heavy weight. This drops' and
within thirty seconds from the
time the man has stepped on to
the carpet he is jerked into the
air and his deathis instantaneous.
The prisoner is jerked about six
feet into to the air and falls back
to about three feet from the
floor.
In eachofthe four executions
which have taken place, the neck
has been broken and there has ap
peared no sign of struggling.

"I feel that we are today in
South Carolina in almost as preca
rious a condition as we were prior
to the campaign of 1879.
This is what James L. Orr said
in his speech at Columbia in ac
cepting the nomination for Lieut.
Governor. In other words your
Governor is just a little better
than a Chamberlain, Moses, Scott
and other Radical Governors
elected by tho negro voto, and you
are just a little better than the
negroes who elected these Radical
Governors. Col. Orr and the
Haskellites and antis are no doubt
of one mind, for it is said this
remark of Col. Orr's was
applauded to the skies. Don't

Democratic Rally.
Pursuant to the order of the State
Democratic Executive Committee, the
County Democratic Executive Com
mittee of Edgefleld county, through
the undersigned as its chairman,
hereby issues a call lor the reorgani
zation of the Democratic party in this
'county, under the Constitution of the
Democratic party of South Carolina,
adopted in State Convention at Colum
bia, S. C" Sept, 10,1890.
The several county clubs are called
to meet at their usual place? of meet
ing on the second Saturday (the 9th
day) of April next, for the purpose of
reorganizing said clubs, and for the
purpose of electing delegates to the
county convention.
The County Convention will meet on
the first Monday (the2nd day) in May
next, at Edgetield C. H., to reorganize i
the party in this county, to elect a new
County Executive Committee, to elect
delegates to the State Convention,
which meets in Columbia on the third
Wednesday in May next, and to trans
act other business as may be proper
under the Constitution.
The State Democratic Constitution
provides that the representation in
each subordinate club in said county
convention, shall be one delegate for
every twenty-five members and one
delegate for each majority fraction
thereof; also that only such Demo
cratic clubs as were in existence on
the 18th of August, 1890, shall be re
cognized. Xo club that was formed or
organized after the 13th day of August,
1890, by the dhision of an old club or
otherwise shall be reorganized.
The constitution aforesaid further
provides that "the clubs in each county
shall be held together and operate un
der the control of a County Executive
Committee, which shall consist of one
member from each club to be nomi- 1
nated by the respective clubs and
elected by the county convention;"
each club will therefore nominate one 1
of its members to be elected by the
county convention to serve on the
County Executive Committee.
