They Want Him. Mr. W. T. Walton, of Meeting Street, is being prominently and constantly spoken of for the Legislature, but to all the entreaties of his friends he say: no. He prefers the life of a private citizen. If the people get him away from his farra they'll have to do like the Romans did Ci nein natus, or as the people did Ben Tillman. A Notable Reduction.

He says, furthermore, that the" portion of the road complained of near Celestia is, no worse than the road on either side-of it. Could Do It So Well. If our contemporary of the Edgefield Chronicle was in a proper frame of | mind he could and would write, cur rente calimo, about the religious meet ings, now being held day and hight in our town-for of such matters he was wont to descant in the happy past with pious zealand fervor.but just now he is like the great Achilles and sulks ? . in his tent, or Jike the Little girl who had a little curl, Which hung right down on her fore- J bead; And when she was good She was very good, indeed, But when she .was bad She was just horrid. Opera House Services*' The meetirigs which Messrs. Watson, j Booth, and Flowden are carrying on in the Opera House is doing a great J work for our community. People who j never attended church before are regular attendants upon these services and old members are putting on anew the robes of ? h word li ness. We have never yet known a revival to accom plish all that was hoped for or expected of it, and oh the other band, we have never yet known a revival that did not accomplish goodland this fact is enough to place this community on the side of | revivals and to cause it to hold up the hands of these Christian preachers. Up to date ?here have been three ac- j cessions to the church: Miss, Linie Slims, Mr. Jt??o Ware, and Mr. Liv ingston. - Grapevine Talk. . Friend John Lanier says that in his happy school-boy days he never, or hardly ever, fought yellow-jackets on Sunday, but on rare- occasions fooled with a June-bug and a string tied to his leg-the June bug's leg, we mean.

May 30, Special.-Hamburg, the sporting town of South Carolina, had a genuine sensation to-day when the 'four - proprietors of its big saloons were arrested by detectives for selling whiskey on Sunday. The bars on Sunday have been doing a big business for some time, until the town has become known in Augusta as the Monte Carlo." Yesterday morning two detectives from Columbia, names unknown, who have been in Hamburg disguised for a week getting evidence, swoop?d down on the bars and made a wholesale arrest, The saloons are owned by Schiller, Butler, Litfield and Schinault. All gave a bond of $200 apiece for'apperance at the next term of court.. It was a great ?urprise to the saloonkeepers, as-'they all thought they had everything their own way, having never been troubled before by the authorities, To night everything is perfectly quiet.

Townes and Capt. S. Lanier Medlock, on the "bai.ks au' braes o' " the muddy Savannah, near the Locks. The river at this point is con sidered one of the, .prettiest places along its. course. Here you can view and inspect the grand works of nature and art in all their varied beauty, and always find something new and interesting at every turn. It i? good indeed to be there and inhale the exhilarating and in vigorating breezes constantly flow ing from over the waters. Boats had been procured for the day, and the girls and boys had a very pleasant time, gliding smooth ly over the pacific waters and going in and out among the ninety nine islands, gathering the farm ers'water-lilies and other flowers that, grow so profusely around. As for the dinner it could not be excelled. There were half a dozen different kinds of fish, and prepared in as many different ways. Besides, the ladies brought large baskets of cake and other eatables, which made the dinner compl?te. The table, superin tended by Mrs. G. T. Harris, Mrs. T. E. Medlock and Mrs. J. J. Bunch, could not be surpassed iii the land for variety and delicious flavor of the viands, sweetmeats, etc. Everything was arranged in splendid style. In a group of large oaks and cedars seats were placed here and there,.and lavish ly covered-with gray moss in flow ing robes, "as it were." .Overhead the trees furnished an outspread canopy of luxuriant foliage, afford ing ample protection from the rather warm rays of the.sun. The branches of the trees were covered with the ino6s, which hung in natural and graceful festoons, and gave the scene that sylvan appear ance we so often read about. And with the girls sitting here and there among the trees and the boys reclining in lazy dignity at their feet, tho whole scene was jone, the appearance, beauty and har mony of which the most exacting and fastidious osthete could hard ly have found fault with T)\ j w'v.- tl:.?; .

At the departure the young ladies expressed themselves as being highly delighted, as the day had vanished like a "beautiful dream;" and the.sun sinking be hind the verdant islands wept j gentle tears in sympathy with the boys, to see them depart. On an island near the Locks is an old Indian burying ground. If any one should see ir, and not know what it was, he would think it was a large* mound formed by nature, as it is 40 or 50 feet higher than the surrounding land. The elevation was caused by the way the red men interred their dead. Instead of digging a grave and burying beneath the surface, they generally placed the dead in a sitting posture on top of the ground, with such of his personal goods as he would need in the happy' hunting grounds. Then they would cover them with sod taken elsewhere, and consequently what once was a level surface has grown into a hillock. Some years ago the mound was opened and investigated by some seekers after "strange things." They found enly a few bits of pots, tomahawks and arrowheads; all else had long ago decomposed in the little vil lage of the silent dead. I am glad to see that Mr. G. AV. Medlock has at last yielded to the solicitations of his numerous friends to become a candidate for the office of County Commissioner. Mr. Medlock is a good financier and a'high-toned gentleman of the first order, and will fill the office with creditto his constituency. Professor B. G. Crisp, the prin cipal of Merriweather Academy, after several weeks of serious ill ness, has about recovered, and has returned to the sohool-room again, Mr. Crisp was taken sick while in Orangeburg on business. Ile waa gladly welcomed back by his numerous friends. The Wade Hampton Rifles, which was organized a few months ago, is still on a boom. The Capr tain, Col. A. P. Butler, is a good disciplinarian and takes special pride in training the boys. Major James Barton, of Lower Merriweather, crossed over the salient River of Death to join that innumerable throng in the Great Beyond, on the 22th inst. . He had attained the honorable and ad vanced age of ninety-two years, and leaves a widow and and --four children. Major Barton was as honest, energetic and conscientious a citizen as ever lived, and was highly respected by all who ever knew him. He leaves behind au escutcheon as spotless as snow and an unimpeachable character. The citizens of this community are going to organize a Literary and Agricultural Society some time in the near future,; at the Alliance Hall. About eighty vol umes have been donated to the Society up to date. J. H. Poverty Hill, S. C., May 30, '92. The One-Horse Farmer. The one horse farmer has a life long ambition to gain a reputation for wearing a dirty shirt. He will alarm the neighborhoo'd by getting up two hours before day, then sit around and not go to work till sun-up. He will ride around a week, looking for a .$2 hog. He will complain of hard times, then tear Iiis pants climbing a fence where a gate ought io be. I > He will pay $3 for a new bridle, then let the calf chew it to pieces before Sunday. : He will get all his neighbors to help in getting a cow out of the bog, then let her die for the wani of attention. Stoek will get in and destroy, h is. crop at aplace in his" fenpe that he has been putting off fixing for six months. He will sprain his back lifting something to show how strong ?fe J S. " :. He will take all day Sunday on what he knows about farming, then ride around the neighborhood Monday, hunting seed potatoes. He will go in his shirt sleeves on a cold day, to show how much he can stand, then return home at night and occupy two-thirds of the fire place till bed time. He will ridicule the mechanisnirof a cotton planter and then go ot?t and mash his thumb nailing a board on the fence. He will go to town on Saturday and come back with fifty .cents worth of coffee, a paper of pins,, a dollar's worth of chewing tobacco, and his belly full cf whisky. He is economical ; economy is his"' forte ; he will save ten cents worth of axle grease and ruin the spindle of a $70 wagon.

We find that the suggestion takes well among the planters of our section. Several have expressed a willingness, yea, a desire, to spend the summer at' Clemson, Fort Hill is a delightful place, and a few weeks there will be equal to a trip to the mountains. Then there are many things in favor of a stay at Clemson. The expens? will be very light. Reduced railroad fate can be secured and fine board con be had at cost, making the trip and a stay of eight weeks cost only about $30.' Then, too, besides the pleasure,.,^ the visit, great benefit'will accrue from eight weeks' study of scientific and practical farming. Mr. J. D. Montgomery proposes to be one of a class of ten from our ! county to take advantage of the. offer. We truly hope the other, nine will come to the front. It will be a pleasure indeed, and lasting good will result from a summer at Clemson-Peo Dec Index A rainons Eulogy. Of all the eulogies in literature there is none more beautiful than the following upon Gen. Robert E. Lee. It fell from the silver, tongue of that eloquent Georgian, Senator Benjamin H. Hill, and ia BB'' to have been extempore. "When the future historian comes to survey the character of Lee he will find it rising' like a huge mountain above the undulating plain -of humanity,, and he will have to lift his eyes high towards heaven to catch its summit. He possessed every virtue of the other great com manders without their vices. He was a foe without hate, a friend without treachery, a soldier with out cruelty ana a victim without murmuring. He M'as a public officer without faults, a private citizen without vices, a neighbor without reproach, a Christian without hypocrisy and a man without guile. He was Caesar without his ambition, Frederick without his tryanny, Napoleon without his> selfishness and Washington with out his reward. He was obedient to authority as a serva?t and royal? in authority as a true king. He was as gentle as a woman in life, pure and modest as a virgin in thought, watchful as a Roman vestal in duty, submissive to law as Socrates, and grand in battle as Achilles.,' The News and Courier says: 'The idea that the poultry industry is a small business should be dismissed at once.

Anguish Follows Merriment i Wellington. WELLINGTON, KAN., May 29.-I is now known to a certainly thc twenty lives were ' lost in Frida night's tornado in this city, an the fatally injured list is addin hourly to thc list of dead. Ther "are half a dozen persons known t be missing, but no trace of thei bodies* can be found until th wreckage of the Phillips Hous a?^d the stores on Washingto: avenue have been removed. Th Phillips House register cannot b found, and the clerk, Hem Adams, is unconscious froc injuries, so that he cannot tel who were in the building and no now accounted for. Among thos killed was a bride of only th re months, burned to death. He; husband is insane from grief, an< has been-placed under restraint A piano tuner, who was reading his Bible when the Phillips H?usi collapsed, was also killed. The tornado was not exceeding two minutes in accomplishing iti terrible destruction and death. The residence portion of the citj that was in the line of the storm which was about two anda hal blocks wide, is laid low. In iti path were located many of th* best residences in the city, as wei as hundreds of small homes. Al are laid on a common level, anc their late occupants form i wandering . army of homeless clolhless citizens. Every hom< left standing.is a hosjntal for th? recepion of tho injured. The country people are ar. beginning to come in to administei to the wants, so far as humar agency can alleviate suffering anc distress. A special train fron .Wichita yesterday morning brought a-corps of physicians, anc late last night a relief corps ol workers arrived from- the same place, to relieve i ho fagged on' men who worked all Friday nigh: and yesterday in an endeavor t< get out more bodies. There are many incidents of thr storm that are remarkable. A bal' thajt:was in progress at the Phillips House had just begun. The music had scarcely struck up when the storm, came. Ladies in evening dress fled, terror-stricken into th? strevt, where the rain of mortal and bricks wore falling. . Strange to say no* one of these who rai out of the hotel was killed outright although nearly all were injuree to some extent. Where the bal! foqm stood is a dense pile o. brick and lumber twelve feei high. Two hundred men were working at the ruins all day, rescuing onr man, who was found in a box t where he had taken refuge.

Twenty freight cars 'were standing" in the Ro'ck Island yard, Ten of them were taken in one direction and ten in another, the .twoibnuches being found a mile apart, smashed to smithereens. It was in one of these cars that Henry, James, a boy tramp, was found killed. The Rock Island lumber yard was one of biggest yards in Kansas j now, not enough lumber remaine in the limits of the yard to build a hen house .. The telephon e system, excepl one lone wire which is all right from end to end, is completely r?ined, and the switchboard al the central office was taken a mile and dropped in a pond. . The electric light dynamo and a ponderous Westinhousc engine were picked up like shingles and carried over the town and deposited not far from the Phillips "House ruins. Another freak of the storm was the manner in which a plate glass was taken from the eleganl Spicknall block and carried ;s?veral yards, set up against a ;'farm house, and, aside from losing a few chips around thc edge, was not broken. Trees were torn from their roots and houses were turned right about face. Stoves were lifted until .th'ey finally landed in the uppei floors of the ruins. How this wa* done is beyond explanation, but it is a fact, nevertheless. In one instance a horse was actually taken from his stable anc dumped on top of a two-story building. The Lutheran church, a massive frame building, one of the moJ substantial of its kind in tho city was taken up, turned completely 'over, and now stands with thc floor aipward, as solid, apparently as-if kiiad been built in that way. It is.riot a small building, either, for it jbas a seating capacity of 70C people. . . The old court, house, a solid two story stone structure, waf completely demolished anc reduced to splinters, with Ihr exception |of one little frame ollie* that a pair of donkeys could dra< from its foundation, which was left standing intact, by the side o the ruins of the old court house.

Al Q the witnesses had testified, and e thc rural judge set in his chati e while Colonel Pike was making c y speech before the jury. Thc a colonel was looking at his jurors 1 very solemnly and speaking very t earnesly, and the jury were all e listening. Now it seemed like ac e earthquake, or something else r suddenly shook the house. "I'll 1 kill you, you scoundrel!''" was ;. what broke loose behind thc 1 colonel with the suddenness of a 2 loud clap of thunder. The jury all jumped up and ran I over the rustic seats and knocked s them helter shelter. The colonel .still stood unmoved, with a? s?r 7 castic inquiry on his radiant face, , as much as to say, ''What in the f deuce is the matter?" He couldn't 3 tell who were the combatants, for ? it seemed every one was engaged. 1 By and by, when there was not 1 quite so much noise, the colonel I raised his head and asked, in as i calm a way as you ever heard: , What is the matter, boys?" Some 3 one said: "Why colonel, the court ? is fighting." And sure enough it was found out that while court ) was in session Judge R. P. Smith r while on his throne, arose from ) his seat of honor and became 1 engaged in a row. Ail was quieted i down by his honor Judge W. B. ; Patrice making the said Judge 1 Smith pay a fine of $5.

It was while Jackson was President that Crockett paid his respects at t he White House. "The President was glad to see me, and we talked a long time," said Crockett, "and finally the General asked me if I wouldn't like to have a drink, say ing that, he had a fine brand that was the real old stuff, and of course, I could not refuse the President. So he went and brougnt it out, and he didn't tell me to pour out one. He didn't bring out any glasses at all, but in genuine, good old true Texan style he handed me the demijohn and then turned his back, and I swung it upon my arm and bogan to pull at it." Such liquor I had never tasted, and I couldn't lot go for a long time, but the President never turned round until i said Bob,' and I tell you that is what I call real, true, genuine politeness, and that is why I say old Gen Jackson was the politest man I ever know."-Cin cinnati Times-Star.
