THURSDAY, DEC. 7, 1S93. L0CAL2 BREVITIES. Penn has a lovely lot of Christ inas goods. Read the continued story ou oui outside called "The Broken Heart. Go to Penn's to get your Christ mas goods. Absalom Hoin, of Ridge Spring, has ulanted 27 bushels of peach seed this fall. Mr. Penn and his three clerks are kept busy until late in tbe night showing their goods. On Monday, Nov. 27, a severe shock of earthquake was felt in northern Vermont. Dolls, io factall kinds of Toys, are cheaper at Penn's this year than ever before. Go and see them. The Portuguese have a proverb that no man can be a good hus band who does not eat a good breakfast. Mrs. Elizabeth Francis Mims. widow of James H. Mims, former ly of our town, died in Newberry, November 21. A man may not be able to serve two masters, but, when he has a wife and a grown daughter, he comes pretty near it. Fresh fruits of all kinds, nuts, raisins, mince meat, confectionery, etc., etd, at Penn's Emporium for Santa Claus. Married, on tin 28th Nov. 1893, by Rev. G. W. Bussey, Mr. - Brown and Miss Gejie Burnett, all of Edgefield County. The Mississippi River was fro zen over at Galena, III., on Fri day, Nov. 24, the earliest ice block ade in twenty years. Be sure to call at Penn's store before you buy your Christmas goods, you will be utterly astound ed at the variety and cheapness of everything. We warn all persons against feeding storm injured corn to horses and mules. In eight cases out of ten it will cause "blind stag gers" and kill them. If we should devote the entire inside of the ADVERTISER this week to Penn's displav of Santa Claus goods we could not do the subject justice. Dolls, Iron audTin Toys, China and Glassware in endless variety. " Every style, and all grades and prices, at Penn's Christmas Em porium. An American uses three times as rnjjcji_m^at as the ordinary Eu ? ?ffiean anc* T Per cen^ more than an Englishman uses, although the English are called a nation of beef eaters. Senator Butler is getting in his licks early. He spoke in Williams burg last week and in Marlboro on Monday qf this week. His sub ject on both occasions was nation al politics. Penn's stock of Christmas goods is the prettiest and most artistic he has ever brought to Edgefield. Our readers will understand that this means a great deal, for Mr. Penn has always lead in this line. "Old Tumbliu" has tumbled, or to state the fact with more ele gance, the Carolina. Cumberland Gap, and Chicago railroad has ad mitted its insolvency and been placed in the hands of a receiver, one W. J. Herbert. Judge Aldrich granted the order. An exchange says that an editor once applied to the door of Hades - for admission. "Well," replied his eable majesty, "we let one of your profession in here many years ago, and he kept up a contiuual row with his former delinquent sub scrbers ; and, as we have more of that class of persons than auy other, we have passed a law pro hibiting the admission of editors." Rev. W. G. Rollins, State can vasser for literature, is in Edge field in the interest of "character sketches" by Dr. Geo. A. Lofton, Nashville Tenn. This book is a gem. The chapter on the "Mote Huntbr" alone is. worth the sub scription price of the book. Mr Lofton has studied human nature The book is replete with though4, and humor. Read it, and you will be profited and entertained. What Cal Said. Re d Gen. Butler's lefter on our outside. He opposes Hampton'* scheme of organizing separate democratic clubs, as we kuew he would. What Josh Said. While holding court here Judge Hudson said that in the election for judges if the legislature should soup him, and he had togo back to the practice of law, he'd be dad squizzled if he would ever prac tice in a trial justice court. What Sam Said. Sam Colgan says there is a col ored convict at the rock quarry, two miles below Edgefield, sen tenced to the Penitentiary for life for stealing $13. He, the convict, admits the stealing but claims the party from whom he took the mon ey owed him just that amount, and he could get it no other way. Sam adds that in his judgment th? judge who sentenced this darkey had never been run through the Keely mill, or be would have had more sense than to have made such sentence. Taxes Paid. Of the $74,000 taxes to be paid in Edenfield this year, only about $20,000 have been paid to date, but they made a rush on last Monday and the cry is, '.still they come. Edgefield Honored. In the awards made by the Judges of the Augusta Exposition Company, Edgefield was twice honored in the person of Miss Eli zaMimsof our town, the talented daughter of Mr. R. H. Minis. Vi quote from the awards as they ap pear in the Augusta papprs: "Best portrait, in pastel, $10, Miss Eliza Miras. Edgefield, S. C. Best oi painting other than portrait, $10 Miss Eliza Mims, Edgefield, S. C What Jas Said. The Hon. W. J. Talbert was in Dur office a few days since and jtated to us that, notwithstanding :he reports to the contrary, he is :or Tillman for the United States Senate, and that he thinks his ?lection is absolutely certain. He said B. R. Tillman is as solid as iver with the people of this State 3e added that he believed the re briners should hold a convention it au early day-in February or tfarch-and nominate a full State icket.

EDITOR: We are getting oraewhat impatient about our ionument to Edgefield's heroic Confederate dead. As one of the oanagers appointed to canvass luiet Township, we feel that we lid the best we could, and if it is he intention of^our worthy presi lent to prosecute the work, ww vould be glad to know, as we might )e able to raise more if we are as sured that it will be ultimately Duilt. Edgefield is a large, rich couu :y and it is a reflection U| on our people that her many heroes should sleep on in nameless graves, while smaller and poorer counties are unbalming their soldier dead in mduring marble. Tis true times ne hard, bul we must have a good sum collected by this time, at least ?nough to make a beginning. We feel doubly interested in this noble work, for we have a brother a?d many near kindred who went to 3leep upon the battle field. We do not wish to appear anyways officious about the matter, but we would be glad to have a report, and a bugle blast of our president. We write this merely to call at tention to this neglected matter, and we would suggest that a meet ing bo called to count up our col lections, and determine what is necessary to at last begin tho work. Can we not hear from our sister workers, and will not you Mr. Edi tor, and all the papers join us in a plea for a Confederate Monument. Respectfully, ELLA DAVENPORT. Denny, S. C. Mine Creek Dots. MR.

With pleasure and profit have ,'e read the Governor's third and atest message. We leave criticism avorable or otherwise to wiser head -but must say en passant that we elieve the Governor "hit the nail n the head" in the matter of rail oads and receivership-?. Viewed in he light he has thrown on it, and udging from the decisions of our 'ederal Judiciaries, the sooner the ?opie put their property in the lands of a receiver the better, if hey wish to avoid the payment of heir taxes, or rather enjoy the ?rivilege of assessing as the)' ilease and be exempt from paying inly as they assess. The remedy suggested for this tate of affairs is indeed a harsh me, but it has gotten to the point phen something must be done or South Carolina's identity as a sov reign State will be completely rversbadowed and lost in the Fed ?ral courts.

The Ministers conference of the Baptist Convention met in the first Baptist church of this place on Tuesday evening of this week. The annual sermon was preached by the Rev. H. C. Buckholtz, cf Chester, whose selection for a text was 1 John 3: 1-6. After the ser mon a paper on "Youug People's Drganization in the churches," prepared by R. W. Lide, was read, in the absence of this gentleman, by Rev. E. J. Forrester, of Green wood. Wednesday morning at 10 Relock, the people of Anderson md the guests of this he suitable people again met together in the Baptist church to hear essays on subjects of vital import. The first paper was read by Rev. S. M. Wells of the Charleston Baptist city mission, the subject )eing "Christology of thePenta ouch." Much interest was nanifested in this paper and it viii be sent to the Baptist Courier or publication, .The next article, 'on the plans of the boards," pre pared by Rev. W. J. Langston, of fork, elicited much comment, and Irew from the brethren the ?xposition of many ideas on this ubject, all of which were a source (f instruction to the hearers. This meeting adjournod to :onveue again at 3:30 in the after loon, when the subject under onsideration was, uThe causes ?f the growth of the Baptist ienomination in the South." 'he essay on this subject read by lev. J. W. Perry displayed much eseach and careful and thoughtful .reparation. The opinions dvauced by this brother as to the irobable cause of this wonderful rowth was, first, the general haracter ol the Bapfist ministry rom the time of Shubill Sterns, Samuel Harris, and others, who rere the first to come South to ireach Baptist doctrine, this i rec?dent of high moral and re igions character, and consecration o God, giving an impulse for good o all those that came after. Lnoiher cause was the fact that bese ministers sought the country istricts and the more secluded pots, where, as a general thing, be mird is more susceptible of eligious instruction. Rev. J. A. Brimson next presented D the audience "The duty of teach ing Baptist doctrines, and the best 'ay of teacliing them." Mr. Brun on is the former miseonary from louth Carolina to Japan. The excellency of the ideas and rguments contained in this omposition elicited much admira ion. Mr. H. C. Buckholtz, of Chester ?ade a climax to the ideas therein ontaiued by a short speech on his. xperience in being converted rom the doctrines of Pedo-Baptists o that of Baptist, making all his eseach and investigation in the rord of God without partiality or >rejudice, and deducing his .uthority for his belief entirely rom that source. Wednesday evening the beauti ul and spacious church was filled o overflowing to hear a sermon rom Rev. I. M. Mercer, of Green ville ; the theme chosen was from ritus 2-11,12,13: "For the grace of God that jringeth salvation hath appeared o all men. Teaching us that lenying worldly lusts, we should ive soberly, righteously, and jodly, in this present world ; Look ing for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great jod and our Savior Jesus Christ." Mr. Mercer treated grace in its threefold mission, its first work jeing to approach men ss sinners lost and undone, afterwards as placing them in a training 6chool 3f affliction and self-denial, next is having been taught of grace, und having become, as it were grown up children in Christ Jesus, giving them the grace to look with longing towards that gloiious appearing of our Lord. Thursday morning the woman's missionary society held its session in the annex. This was presided over by Miss M. E. McIntosh, of Society Hill. Reports from the various associations were read by the vice-Presidents, all of which wera encouraging to some extent. Miss Hyde, our city missionary residing in Charleston, made an interesting and helpful rei o t from her work in that place. The report of the central committee was also read by Miss M. L. Coker. The thanksgiving service was conducted by Rev. Lansing Burrows, of Augusta, and his discourse was drawn from Matthew xxxii.21 : "Render therefore unto Cosar the things that are Coi a.'d and unto God the things that are Goda." This sermon was a powerful one with many touches of pathos. Thursday 'evening was devoted to the discussion of the orphanage and the reading of reports of the Home Mieaion board. Short speech es were made on tho subject of the orphanage by Col. Campbell, of Anderson county, Mr. Robert "Watson, of Ridge Spring, the Rev. Mr. Wilkins, of Beaufort, Rev. Mr Ferris, of Winnsboro, aL-d Dr. Ramsey, of Charleston. All these brethren bare testimony to the correctness and excellency of the management of the Connn Maxwell orphanage, and all say that it is easy to collect for that institution, as it is firmly planted in the hearts of the people. Brother Ramsey, of the. Home Mission Board, said "that it was not easy to exaggerate the im portance of this work, and that there is great responsibility along this line.This board has established one hundred and fifty-five churches and now employs three hundred and sixty eight missionaries. Over $2,000 dollars has been contributed to this department by the women of South Carolina. The Baptist house of worship in Cuba has can celled its indebtedness. The free dom of conscience of the Baptist doctrines will doubtless commend itself to foreigners coming into the Southland from the tyrannical East. The negro question also claims the attention of the Home Mission board and this momentous ques tion we cannot afford to ignore. No race has ever in the history of nations made such rapid progress from barbarism to civilization in so short a time. This is due, of course, to the fact of their ming ling with a superior race. 'Every negro knows the way to the Jordan,' says one. 'They are all Baptists, and when they profese anything elsa, you may know that some,' white man has been tinkerin' with 'em.'" The next report on this subject was from Brother McConnell, of Georgia. He is the humorist of tho convention, and though a zealous and ready worker has ever a laughable and witty saying on hie tongue's end. He is the best man to make the last speech. , F. What Our Solons Are Doing in Columhi?-A Letter From the Scene of Action. COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 2, 1893. EDITOR ADVERTISER: A few lines from a looker on, of the doings of the General Assembly, might be of some interest to your readers, hence this scribbling. There has been but little done up to this time in the way of real legislation. Some of the advocates of the proposed County of Green wood have been here in the inter est of their project with map and petitions and a bill for the estab lishment of said County has been introduced in the House. It has not yet been reported upon by committee. None of the important measures have as yet been report ed upon by the committees. The Senate has taken a recess untiL.Tuesday evening, to allow the lawyers to go home to be at their respective county court houses on salesday. The House of Representatives has accepted an invitation from a delegation from Augusta to attend the exposition on Tuesday 5th inst. I do not know how many of the members may go. Well, the election of Register for Charleston County, an Associate Justice of Supreme Court and five Circuit Judges came off yesterday, consuming four hours in its ac complishment. The President pro tempore of the Senate, Senator Timraerman, presided over the General Assembly in joint seseion. Hon. W. H. Yeldell occupied the speaker's chair. Both Lieut-Gov Gary and speaker of tho House Jones were candidates for the As sociate Justiceship, hence the con tingency for the honor of two Edge field Representatives being called upon to fill said positions. The resignation of Lieut-Gov. Gary will leave Senator Timmerman acting Lieut.-Gov. of the State. The Columbia State is quite bit ter in its criticism of the results of the election for Judges. The State fails to see that the reform Legis lature showed less partizanship in their votes than did the Conser vatives as none of the latter voted for men of the reform faction whilst such was not the case with the other faction. They did not see themselves as others see them. LOOKER-ON.
