'He was the oldest memb of our local bar, and for yea after the war his practice exceed' perhaps that of any other lawy here.

Mr. Bice, Preached ?a Our Village Presbyterian' Church on Sunday, the . < 9th of* July, 1893. t . - The Columbia District^Confer .ence held its quarterly*-meeti'n in Edgefield during the paet weeli On Sunday morning last ther were services in the Methodie Church conducted by the Rev. Mi Kilgo, and in the' Presbyterial Church the sermon was deli vere? "by the Rev. Mr. Rice, o?J;he Wash ington Street Methstrrsir Church Columbia. From the latter name? we heard one of the most eloquen and effective sermons ever preach ed in Edgefield. The congregatioi was rather small, arM^?tcr dearin j this much appreciated address i was regretted .that more were no present, a? no one could have lis tened to such a dissertation fron a man of such personal magnetisn and grace of expression combin?e with the fact that it. w^irnm J humble heart and regardless"'o self, without deriving: *??ife-nfh: benefit There were? many ?ii the Presbyterian Church on "Sun day morning ^P^^JffT^ ?eived deep impressi?flB^hich: vrfl? at some future day bring forth frail .to the honor and glory of God. ""' There was nothing very remark able in the personal appearance oi Mr. Rice till he began speaking Then it was that his persona charms and magnetic influence showed itself and'made the con gregation necessarily attentive We must not go on without saying a word for Edgefield, and thal *w?rd is, that congregations in the churches here are attentive at al] times. The speaker did not as'we are trying to do-display his OWE merits-but continually pointed out Christ and the way of salva tion. It inspired awe and wondei as we listened to the floods of elo quence which came from his lips. When a man forgets himself and preaches only Christ and Him crucified, wi rh inspiration and aid from the infinite God, it is then that the divinity in man is dis played. We forgot the ?peaker in listening toa discourse elevated, and forcible in thought, eaBy and effective in utterance and at the same time an unmistakable out pouring from the fullness of the heart. The sermon chosen from the eleventh chapter of Hebrews and 'first verse, "Now faith is the sub stance of things hoped for," was calculated to give those who heard I it ian exalted and more elevated ?idea of the~infinitude and magni I tude of God, but at the same time made manifest to us his unbound 16d and incalculable mercy. Said ' the speaker : fe "There is no religion existing whose god is represented as seeking man, except the religion of Jesus Christ. God seeks man for three reasona^j^e^auie hH*p3SbwT ff Cguv bleeding" and- nelpie*! condition, because we are precious and of much worth, and because we are His children." The ideas expressed in this dis course reminded us of Emerson who is said to have had such an exalted opinion of human kind as pto have remarked.to a friend : -If yojgf knew hp1?mu^??.?i.? ?i vj ne there is in every human being, you would fall down on your knees be fore the humblest beggar- in the street." On one occasion there was to be a lecture delivered by Mr. Emerson and an Irish servant woman was engaged in the hotel in the place. It was noticed by the inmates of the hotel that towards nightfall she seemed .very much hurried to finish her work. Some one said to her, "Why this hurry, Bridget?" "Oh, Tin going out to hear Mr. Emerson," she said, "I always go to hear him lectnre, be cause ho makes me feel as if I'm as good as anybody, and I love to feel that way." Mr. Rice has a like regard for humanity, ?nd said he "loved to think that the sun, the moon, the stars, the universe, waited upon him. Electricity in the flashing lightning has had the same power since the ages begun, but it re mained for Mr. Edison to dis cover its use and bring it under the control of man." Solomon said that there was nothing new under the sun, and iu listening to sermons we consider them simply remind ers, for the same ideas have been expressed on numberless occasions. This ia-an evidence of the charm and attractiveness of the gospel, that the "old, old story" is as pre cious to-day as it was in the. ages gone by. One beautiful thought of the speaker and a suggestive one was this, that "the manifes tations of revealed love cannot be resisted. A hound would at kind ness die watching over the dead body of his master; a bird caress ed will return to the shoulder of; her that caressed it-a heart full" of love, revealed to fellow-men, will call forth smiles and respon sive'thrills of sympathy at every ^ssiu^nToment; from the objects :oi; tr^t ??ejction^ ' "There is no. definition of the word faith in the Bible; the text gives: only.two of the attributes of f?ith\ There is in? fact no definition of anything in the Bible, for a truth "is grande!** and contains more than any definition." i l^Crj?iBt asked one of the disciples ifwhen;he came again he would afwid Imuch-" ?faith in the world?

There is not tory rj?u?h pure, simple, trusting faith in 'the worM at this day. There is consecration, and the world is better than it has ever been, more is being done for the uplifting of degraded and down trodden humanity." "Christ came and he knew how to' draw from man the best that was in him, he appealed to their best emotious and it is no less the case to-day. There are heroes sleeping in the hearts of men and women present here that can bo touched aud brought into action only by the Christian religion." t ? - ,. "...

SM ADA. Elmwood Items. MR. EDITOR : The crops at pres ent are needing rain very badly. We have been having so much that crops are so full of sap they can not stand much dry weather. If we don't get plenty of rain this week the corn crop will be mate rially injured.? The crops are rather sorry any way ; they have not been as well worked as they should, and the grass has hurt them pretty bad in places. I rode around a little in the neighborhood yesterday and was surprised to see so much grass. I thought the crops were pretty clean by the way the people worked last week. One of the greatest obstacles we have to contend with is the farmers will not work enough, which greatly re tards their prosperity. So far as I can hear, a majority of the people favor the Dispensary ; they say the liquor is better, and the pints and quarts are full meas ure, which was not so heretofore, and that some bottles called quarts it took five of them to hold a gal lon. I say give the Dispensary a fair trial, and if it is a good thing say so, and if not say so, above all be honest in your de cision. If you are an anti and see the Dispensary works well say 60, and don't condemn it because you are opposed to Gov. Tillman. It was the Legislature that made the law, not Gov. Tillman, and if you are opposed to the law let your de nunciation rest upou the Legisla tute where it properly belongs. It don't% matter what- terned up the anftis blame GovrTillma-n and gay he did it,& an<f I r?ckorf' it Ihey knew the world was coming to an ena to-morrow they would say Gov.

EDITOR: Tuesday, July 4, found some four hundred people at Butler's to give audience to the Alliance revivalists. The day was calm clear and warm, but the mag nificent shade under which the stand was erected and the table spread, together with the ten thousand pitchers of lemonade and innumerable waiters of ice cream that, beset one on every hand oper ated ia- tempering to a great degree the mercili.'ss rays of a July sun. The exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. F. St. Clair, after which he introduced as the first speaker, Mr. Parks of the Farmer. He began by saying that he made no pretensions to being a speaker ; was not accustomed to public speaking. All he expected and all he wanted to do was to talk in a plain intelligible manner upon one or more of the great issues of the day. His topic was the tariff, which question he said he had given special study. He dwelt at some length upon its iniquity, pro duced statistics showing how under ther present tariff laws the con? sumers were being robbed^ and il lustrated how the Alliance would soon revolutionize the present state of affairs, by using , one of the famous Col. Ham's best and richest anecdotes, "The'Georgia Crackers novel method of treating his sick mule." He said the monopolists and gold-bugs had long since in serted tho cane in the mouth of the masses, but that the latter like the mule were going to do the blowing and when the salt and cayenne pepper reached its des tination, like the "Georgia Cracker" "they'd swar they'd swallowed a bee-gum and a piney woods saw-mill." In concluding he urged upon the farmers the necessity and importance of their loyal support of the Edgefield Farmer. The Rev. J. A. Carson was then introduced but after a few remarks generously gave up his time to Col. Duncan, of the State Ex change. This was the. Colonel's first appearance in Edgefield and the attention which his masterly speech received warranted him the . assurance that it was duly appre ciated. He began by reverting to the 4th of July, 1776, when the fishers of our Republic were de liberating as to the expediency of disclaiming their allegiance to Great Britain and relying upon the justice of their demands pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor for their maintenance. And" to-day said he after 117 years we see the masses of the United States in open rebellion not against a foreign power, but against, a do mestic enemy in the form of Iniquitous legislation, which u less soon repulsed will not on destroy our liberty but bring ru to our country and-starvatior our homes. When the speaker h; forcibly impressed upon his he? eis the justice of their deman and ?arnestly urged them to pre forward in the fight until victo and equality before the law w achieved, he branched off on tl workings of the exchange and ve satisfactorily explained what i important factor it had been the Alliancemen of the State, bo as a source of information and ; a means of saving them mone He did not pretend to say that tl Alliance trade should be carrie on soley through the Exchang The idea would be foolish, f< there were a thousand little articli that can be had of the local me chants at the same prices i through the Exchange. There ye have hisentire stock to select froi and it is not only more *satisfa< tory but more convenient to gi them at home. The speaker ii sisted, however, that the guan trade ought to be conducte through the Exchange. He wf Bur? that he could save them mone on their^fertilizers. Their baggin and ties also if bought throng the Exchange would cost them lesi explained the cause of lac year's confusion in regard to guan purchases, and in conclusion illut trated by certain incidents whic ha'd come under his observatio the many ways in which purchaser had saved money by buying good of whatever nature through ?h manager of the Exchange. The Colonel's speech occupied little over an hour. At ils conclu sion dinner was announced. An what a dinner! In variety an abundance, weil we can't remem ber when we ever saw it equaled We have heard it remarked sine that there was enough lo have fe< a section five miles square for ? month! In this statement w could concur if every inhabitant o said territory was an editor or J Methodist preacher. ' The afternoon speaker was Con gressman Talbert. Although un able to move his right arm fron rheumatism, yet his spea.kin? powers were unaffected. He. em phatically declared that he wa standing upon the Alliance plat form and intended to battle fo Alliance demands. His speed for the most part was an exp' tim of the ''Declaration of T tioiiB" as laid^down on the A *nc< constitution. The refreshments were furnishe< by the ladies of Red Bank the pro ceeds" of which are to be used ii the purchase of a church organ We understand-that their businesi netted the handsome sum of forty eight dollars. We congratul?t? tnem on their success. The committee of arrangement! is to be congratulated for its ex cellent management. In fact th< whole community and everybody present deserve to be congratu lated for their liberal endeavors t( make the occasion what it was, z complete success in every imagin able respect. BUD.

Tho Executive Mansion oc cupied by Governor Tillman and family, was guarded last Friday night by guards from the peni tentiary, but this was done with out a request having been made by the'Governor. The city was on a big drunk and riotous orgies seemed to have been the order of the night. On the head of the average man there are about 1,200,000 hairs, provided of course, that he is not bald, DEATH RIDES, THE STORM, Fifty-three Balled and Seventeen Fatally Injured. POMERY, Iowa, July 7.-Fifty three dead, seventy-five fatally injured and 150 with broken limbs, cuts and bruises more or less severe. This is what the tornado of last night accomplished in the . matter of casualty. The town o? Pomeroy is one complete wreck. [There is'scarcely a house left standing. About fifteen acres of debris constitute now what was yesterday a thriving village. Splinters are all that remain. Scarcely a tree remains. Piles -of broken timbers- and occasional pirces of furniture are all that can be found of what was once the largest building in the place. Two b. -^ed and fifty honses "were in all destroyed and the money loss on these and their contents is placed at $200,000. The tornado, for such it was, came'from the northwest. All who saw it agree that it was not of the funnel shape species but came bounding along the prairie like a huge ball. It was of a dark green color and was accompanied by a terrific noise. Many saw it when it waa. far out of town, Those gave 'the- alarn nd some were prepared for the monster when it reached the village. Most of the people, however, became panie, stricken. They ran out of their houses and fled up the streets crying and shrieking till struck by flying timbers or whirling trees. The cooler ones, howevor, especial!}' those who were near to them,made for two caves in the southwest part of the town, built especially for just such occasions as this. Into one of these '"wes collected 25 people and in aother one fifth. All escaped without a scratch. It is pretty well agreed Chat the tornado struck the town about 6 ;50 o'clock. Half an. hour before this it was exceedingly hot and sultry [and eave for a few small clouds there was no evidence of the approaching whirlwind. The clyclone was but of a few minutes duration and was followed by a terrific rainstorm which continu ed at intervals moro or less throughout the night. The patn of the storm seemed to be about an eight of a milo wide and twenty miles long. The death list out in the country is heavy and many of the neigh boring towns report many casualties. In Fairfield, in the county, the number of dead is fifteen. Eight more are reported killed at Storm Lake and many other places give notice of one or two deaths. It was not until noon to-day that the work of rescue began. By that time there was a good supply of doctors, not large enough, however, to care for the wounded. The ladies of Fort Dodge went as nurses and there was a plentiful supply of bedding and food. As rapidly as possible the injured were taken to the im provised hospitals and given medical attenton. The buildings were inadequate to the needs of the injured. A company pf militia from Fort. Dodge brought their tents and these were used for hospital purposes. The Heat of the sun was very great, the thermometer rising among the nineties. The tents were very hot and deaths among the injured were very frequent. The intense heat made it impossible to keep the bodies of the dead and those that were not claimed by relatives or friends and by them buried or taken away by noon were placed in the graveyard by the officials. Forty graves were dug and filled with the dead up to 9 o'clock this evening, and at that hour the Utting lanterns in the cemetery showed plainly that the work of burial was going on still. Severar little babies have been found alive md well but it has been impossible to find parents for them. > PECULIAR. iXO^WOMENj Have used and recommended lt to my friend*.

Keeley's Double Chloride of Gold Reme dies, for the cure of the liquor, opium, morphine, and tobacco dis eases, and Neurasthenia, we warn the public that these remedies are used by no institution or sanita rium in the United States except those established by our company, under the uniform name of "The Keeley Institute." All others claiming to use Dr. Keeley's Remedies or formula are frauds and impostors. The Keeley Institutes establish ed in various parts of the United States now number ninety, with three in Europe, where the Keeley Treatment is administered and the Keeley Remedies sold. We, how ever, caution all to examine well and know that they are dealing with genuine representativesTliu thorized by us, before taking treat ment or purchasing remedies. The misleading establishments use the name of "Bi-Chloride of Gold," or similar titles. The news papers often fail to discriminate sufficiently to know that they are imitators.

The efficacy of Dr. Leslie E. Keeley's. Double Ch ol o ride of Gold Remedies has been so pub licly acknowledged and thoroughly recognized throughout the civilized world, that the recent endorsement by the Government removes all questions of doubt as to their virture and genuineness. On February 13, 1892, General Wm. B. Franklin, President of the Board of Managers of the National Military Homes for Disabled Soldiers ar d Sailors, authorized a contract v ,h The Leslie E. Keeley Co for the use of Dr. Keeley's Remediesin the seven Natinal and twenty-one State Homes in the United States. General Franklin, in a letter regarding this contract and Dr. Keeley's Remedies, speaks em phatically of "the great good the future has in store for the un fortunate victims of Alcoholism," giving personal thanks to Dr. Keeley for enabling the Board of. Managers to treat veterans under their charge.'.

Keeley has placed the Double Chloride of Gold in the form of a Home Treatment for the benefit of those who, for any reason, cannot avail themselves of the Sanitarium Treatment. Its merits have been fully tested for more than twelve years, and we have no hesitation in pronouncing it to be what the press has already named "AN INFALLIBLE CUBE FORDROMNESS." We are prepared to give all cases special advice and attention by correspondence throughout the treatment and to look closely after each case from beginning to finish ; the object being to save the victim from the Liquor Habit wherever found, and to certainly make a Cure in every Case to which the Remedy is sent. No additional charge is made for such services. Report blanks are sent with the Remedy for Home Treatment, one of which the patient is requested to fill out every three days and re turn to us, which is answered by a personal letter of advice and in structions. By this system of Re port blanks we keep a close watch over the treatment, taking charge of it from beginning to finish, and thus facilitat9 the cure. The price of the Remedy is $9.00 per pair, and, being a liquid, must be shipped by express. For further information address, The Keeley Institute, COLUMBIA, S. C. W. L DOUGLAS S3 SHOE Hom.

If you would, read carefully what follows and you may see a way to do it. The Press Clams Company devotes much attention to patents. It has handled thousands of applications for inventions, bnt it would like to handle thousands more. There is plenty of inventive talent at large in this coun try, needing nothing but encourage ment to produce pratical results. That encourgement the Press Claims Company proposes to give. NOT 80 HARU AS IT SEEMS. A patent strikes most people as an appallingly formidable thing. The idea is that an inventor must be a natural, genius, like Edison or Bell; that he must devote years to delving in complicated mechancial problems and that be must spend a fortune on delicate experiments before he can. get a new device to a patentable de gree of perfection. This delusion the company desires to dispel. It desires to get into the head, of the public a clear comprehension of the fact that it is not the great, complex, and expensive inventions that bring the best returns to their authors, but the little, simple, and cheap ones-the tbings^that seem so absurdly trivial that the average citizen would feel somewhat ashamed of bringing them to the attention of the Paten ^Office. Edison says that the profits he has received from the patents on all his marvelous inventions have not been sufficient to pay the cost of his ex periments. But the man who conceived the idea of fastening a bit of rubber cord to a childes ball, so that it would come back to the hand when thrown made a fortune out cf his scheme. The modern sewing machine is a miracle of ingenuity-the product of the toil of hundreds of busy brains through a hundred and fifty years, but the whole brilliant result rests upon the simple device of putting the eye of the needle at the point instead of at the other end. THE LITTLE THINGS THE MOST VALU ABLE. Comparatively rew peopla ] regard themselves as inventors, but ?almost everybody has been struck, at one time or another, with ideas that seemed calculated to reduce sor? of the little frictions of life. Usually ajch are ideas dismissed without further thought. "Wby" don't the railroad company make its car windows so that they can be slid up and down without breaking the passengers' backs?" exclaims the traveler. "If I were running the road I would make them in such a way." /What was the man that made this saucepan thinking of?" grumbles the cook. .'He never had to work over a stove, or he would have known how it ought to have been fixed." "Hang: such a collar button !" growls the man who is late for breakfast "If I were in the business I'd make buttons that wouldn't slip out, or bqpak off, or gouge out the back-of my neck." And then the various sufferers for get about their grievancet and begin to think of something else. If they would sit down at the next convenient opportuni.y, put their id*?as about car windows, saucepans,and collar but tom, into practical shape, and then apply for- patents, they might find themselves as independently wealthy as the man, who invented the iron umbrella ring or the one who patented^the.flfleen puzzle. A TEMPTING OFFER." To induce people to keep track of their bright ideas and see what there is in them, the Press. Claims Company has resolved to offer a prize. To the person whs submits to it the simplest and most promising inven tion, from a commercial point of view, the company will give twenty-five hundred dollars in cash, addition to refunding the fees for securing the patent. It will also 'advertise the invention free of charge. This offer is subject to the following conditions :* Every competitor must obtain a patent for his invention through the company. He must first apply for a preliminary search, the cost of which will be five dollars. Should this search show his invention to be unpatentable he can withdraw without further ex pense. Otherwise he will be expected to complete his application and take out a patent in the regular way. The total expense, including Government and Bureau fees.will be seventy dollars. For this, whether he secures the prize or not, the inventor will have a patent that ought to be a valuable property to him. The prize will be awarded by a jury consisting of three reputable patent attorneys of "Washington. In tending competitors should'fill out the following blank, and forward it with their application : u-,-, 1S92. "I submit the [within described in vention in competition for the Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize offered by the Press Claims Company. U_J) NO BLANKS IN THIS COMPETITION. This is a competition of rather an unusual nature. It is common to offer prizes for the best story, or picture, or architectural plan, all the competitors risking the loss of their labor and the successful one merely [selling his for the amount of the prize. But the Press Claims Company's offer is something entirely different. Eaoh person is asked merely to help himself, and the one who helps himself to the best ad vantage is to be rewarded for doing it. The prize is only a stimulus to do something that would be well worth doing without it. The architect whose competitive plan fora club house on a certain corner.is not accepted has spent his labor on something of very little use to him. But the person who patents a simple and useful device in the Press Claims Company's competi tion' need not worry if he fail to secure the prize. He has a substantial result to show for his work-one that will command its value in the market at any time. The plain man who uses any article in his daily work ought to know bet ter how to improve it than - the mechanizal expert who studies it only from the theoretical point of view. Get rid of the idea that an improve ment can be too simple to be worth patenting. The simpler the better. The person who best succeeds in combining simplicity and popularity, will get the Press Claims Compay's twenty-five hundred dollars. The responsibility of this company may be judged from the fact that its stock is neld by about three hundred of the leading newspapers of the United States.
