Next to sweet fresh butter as
a (Mgge?tible fat comes bacon,
which, when delicately broiled, is
as delicious as it is nutritious. It
is said to be the process or curing
that changes pork, which, in its
? fresh state, is so hard for a deli
cate stomach to assimilate. The!
fiber is so close that the digestive
fluids 'do not readily act upon it.
Mrs. Abel, who is an authority ou

"Bacon has come to rival cod-liver I

How to Make it Rain.
Dan Branson told Capt. DuBose
on Saturday last, that "he heard s
cock-partridge whistle Bob White
after sun-down of the night be
fore, Friday, and it will be raining
before day cracks on Tuesday
morning." Sure-enough it rained
on Monday night. ,Capt. DuBose
is now a convert of Dan's and
wants to catch that partridge, cage
him, and twist his tail and make
him whistle Bob White when rain
is needed. Dan says, furthermore,
that "it generally takes three days
for a partridge to bring rain, more
or less, however, according to the
dryness of the drought."
Edgefieid Oil Mill.
The Edgefieid Oil Mill property,
sold on Monday of this week,
brought $16,000. It was bought
by the judgment creditors, J). A.
Tompkins & Co., of Charlotte, N.
C., who, we have been infoimed,
will continue to operate it as be
fore the sale. The history of this
plant may be given in a few words :
It cost, approximately, ground,
buildings, and machinery, $60,000.
Of this amount $15,000 was sub
scribed by Edgefieid, $5,000 by
Charleston, and $5,000 by outside
parties. This made a cash sub
scription of $25,000, which was
expended for "the land and build
ings. The machinery, costing
about $35,000, was not paid for,
and for this debt the property was
sold. The mill has been in opera
tion for three seusons, '90, '91, and
'92, under the presidency of A. J.
Norris, Esq. The first and second
year it paid all expenses, and the
last year, not only paid expenses,
but also, a dividend of 10 per cent,
on the capital stock.
Memorial Day-Let It Be Observ
ed in Edgefieid.
MR. EDITOR: I notice in the
papers" that a number of our South
ern cities and towns have already
observed memorial day, and the
question naturally arises will
Edgefieid allow this year to pass
without publicly doing honor to
the memory of her Confederate
dead? In times past she ha? re
membered and celebrated in suita
ble services, with floral offerings
and loving hearts, the deeds of her
departed heroes.
Is the spirit that actuated such
observances dying in this town
and county? Recent years would
indicate that it is. This should
not be, and I charge and call upon
our noble women to see to it that
EI part of next Wednesday, the
10th inst., be set apart and de
voted to this holy purpose. It is
a, work of patriotic love and be
longs peculiarly to them. With
out meaning to appear officious
allow me to suggest, that the ladies
of the town surrounding country,
and county, if possible, meet at
the Methodist Church on next
Friday afternoon, the 5th inst.,
ind make such arrangements for
fche observance of the day as their
good taste and judgment may
iictate. Prior to decorating the
graves, let a meeting be held in
the Baptist Church at which let
some one be invited to deliver an
iddress; and-extend an invitation
to all if the military companies of
the county to attend. The cause
is indeed a sacred one, and let old
Edgefieid observe the day in a
manner worthy of the memory of
her gallant sons who gave their
lives to their oountry's cause.

MR. EDITOR : After experiencing
the hustling of last week's wind,
which was a rival for the Asiastic
simoon, we were in hopes that we
would have some rain, but, alas,
we were disappointed, and now the
clouds have left for parts unknown,
and sunshine and dust have blend
ed tog3ther and we have to do the
best we can.
Farm work is coming to a stand
still. Some are done planting,
and some just started.
Rev. N. N. Little preached at
Mine Creek on Sunday last.
MrXJ. C. Lewis's school at Pine
Grove closed on Saturday last.
There was a large crowd out, and
it was a grand feast, intellectually
and otherwise, to attend it. The
morning exercises were a general
review of the whole session's work.
The books which were reviewed
were as follows: Arithmetic,
Grammar, Geography, and His
tory. The claeses did exceedingly
well. They demonstrated that in
every particular they had been
trained well by their teacher, and
had been at their posts regularly.
After 8bout four hours at the class
bench they were dismissed for
noon. Another such a hustling
around for baskets ! and I never
saw a better repast served on such
an occasion. Everybody was well
pleased, and no one in a rush.
In the afternoon they had a con
test for the Demorest gold medal,
and other speeches of note. The
afternoon was opened by Mr. C. L.
Temples, who made a speech on
"Jimmie Butler," an Irish boy,
which was very laughable and en
Then came the contest. M?SB
Axie Story carried off the prize.
Mr. Jas. M. Chapman gave avery
amusing speech-a humorous po
litical speech-which would have
made you laugh till lay-by-time
We are glad to note that the peo
ple of the piny woods are enthused
about education. Old Pine Grove
with its model teachers has become
famous as a country school.
Mr. Thos. Whittle was disturbed
last Sunday by the breaking of
one of hi window panes while
lying down. Getting excited at
the fuss he jumped up and behold
there was a hawk lying flat of his
hack on the floor. He said that
he jumped right on the gentleman
and mashed his life out. That
was the way to clean him up, was
it not?

I The Philosopher's Stone, Pay as
You Go?-Keep Your Expenses
Down Below Your Income.
MR. EDITOR: The following
seems to be the regular schedule
of many farmers in Edgefield
county from year to year without
change :
First, in March or April they go
! down to the village to make ar
rangements with The Farmers
I Bank or The Edgefield Bank to get
I enough money to run them during
the year, giving endorsements or
! mortgage and liens to secure pay
I ment. For this money borrowed
they pay 11 per cent, interest, more
interest than they can make on
their farms with their shiftless
way of managing them.
Well, having secured their
? money they return home with
their little one-horse or two-horse
wagons loaded with bacon, corn,
flour, and syrup, all of which they
could have made at home for lesa
than it coats them. Having reach
ed home they unload, cock their
legs np against the side of the
house, and the old woman cookiug.
eat and eat and eat, sending the
nigger to the field to work, who
plants, works and gathers in his
own trifling way ; and so it con
tinues until the gathering season,
when, having picked and ginned a
couple of bales of cotton he goes
down to Edgefield and settles up
his note at the bank, or a part, as
the case may be. Makes a little
corn, perhaps enough to run him
till planting time, and so it goes
from year to year, no change or
shadow of turning.
How easy to remedy all this, by
sowing oats early in the fall on
good land, and planting plenty of
corn in March or April. I am a
one-legged Confederate soldier, but
have never failed to make some- r
thing over and above a living c
every year, never very much, but T
always something.
The secret of success in farm
ing is first, to make provisions for a
family and stock then as much y
cotton as possible ; second, to keep \
your expenses below your income f
if only one cent. You may find it 0
hard to do for the first year, but
after that it is easy and gets to be
a habit. The difference is just t
this: The man who makes ten g
dollars and spends nine dollars and
ninety-nine cents is contented and f
happy; the man who makes ten \
dollars and spends ten dollars and
one cent is miserable.
Pay as you go and if you can't
pay don't go.

Delightful Trip to a School j
MR. EDITOR: On Friday even- f
ing, April 28th, the writer accom- I
panied by three Edgefield boys, j
witnessed the closing exercises of f
the Fruit Hill High School. We f
left the village about6 o'clock and c
after two hours drive reached the t
beautiful little building. A stage t
had been erected just on the out- t
side, handsomely decorated with a
all kinds of evergreens and flowers li
of almost every variety, together a
with numbers of lovely lanterns, a
We regret exceedingly that we c
cannot publish the programme, c1
but due to our neglect we failed to v
secure one. While this is true we r
can truthfully say, Miss Cogburn, s
the amiable and accomplished s
teacher, deserves great credit and if
praise for the elegant taste dis- r
played in arranging this enter
tainment. In all of our experience, f
we have never before seen such a 3
multitude of beautiful and intelli- (
gent little girls, and the boyB, c
some of them almost young men, (
acted their parts perfectly, and c
we wish for them, as we see their i
handsome faces before us, all the 1
success possible in their future 6
undertakings. }
The exercises were concluded by j
singing "God be with you till we (
meet again," by the entire school.
After which a collection was taken
up for the benefit of the band, i
after this we enjoyed a very pleas
ent but short reception.
One of our favorites was very '
highly entertained by the sweet '
music of a little Bird. We Judge 1

MR. EDITOR: The farmers of
this section are moving on very
nicely, almost through planting.
A large corn crop has been plant
ed. We had a nice shower of rain
on the night of the 20th ult., but
the high wind the day following
soon dried off the land, and grain
ie needing it now almost as badly
as ever.
The writer made a flying visit to
Newberry two weeks ago, and saw
3ome fine fields of wheat. Some of
the farmers had cotton up, and
some just putting it in.
Mr. L. D. Riley has two fields of

ng his text was : "A little leaven
eaveneth the whole lump," he
?ompared "a little leaven" to a
ittle sin leading on to greater.
Sunday evening he preached from
,he text : "The way pf the trans
gressor is hard." The church was
srowded, and every one enjoyed
lis excellent sermons. An old
jentleman who had been both a
3aptist and Presbyterian said they
vere the best he ever heard.
