THURSDAY, JAN. ll, 189-1. LOGALA BREVITIES. Now is the time to putin spring turnips, green pease, and onions. Among your many new resolu tions resolve to raise your own meat. The Edgefield Institute opened on Monday of this week with a good attendance. Prof. M. W. Peurifoy, principal of the Trenton High School, was in town on Saturday last. Sncb has been the mildness of '-the weather that some of our gar deners have strawberries nearly ripe. During Auditor Haltiwanger's absence on his rounds through the county, Judg* Allon will take property returns at his office. Hon. Wm. C. Whitney, of New York, secretary of the navy under Cleveland's first administration, is s journing at Aiken for the winter. Mr. R. M. Hays will have two car loads of rino horses aud mules here at Edgefield this week. Look up Lod Stevens if you want to buy any. The thermometer for the past ten days has been ranging as high as GO on au average ; summer weather here at a time we usually have freezes* Now tnere comes the story of a boy who found two hundred dollars in a can of tomatoes. Jt is not settled in which canning factory the rumor started. This is campaign year and prom ises to be the liveliest sort of one. If you wish to keep up with the procession subscribe for the AD VERTISER without delay. H. W. Johnson, of Greenwood, advertises in this issue an eight day, hour and half hour strike, beautiful, guaranteed clock for $3. Upon receipt of the mouey he will send you the clock by express or freight. Dr. J. B. Owens, of Laurens county, a graduate of the Atlanta Medical College, has located iu the Ropers Store section of our couuty for the practice of his profession. Dr. Owens boards with Mr. John F. Atkins. The Abbeville Medium says: "Saturday before Christmas the dispensary at Abbeville sold $745 worth of whiskey. The chief of police informs us that not au ar rest was made on that day or on Christmas day. Enoch Cheatham, colored, has left at this office for indentifica tion by the owner, a valuable gold ring, which he picked up on the street. Claimant may obtain the same by application at theAEVER TisER office, proving property, and paying for this notice. The first seizure of contraband liquor in our town under the dis pensary law was made on Satur day last in the depot at this place by Constable Jack Harling. The amount seized is five gallons, marked to A. C. Ouzts. We under stand it has been iu the depot for several months. Mr. C. A. Long, of Trentou, gives the following ns an infaliible remedy for the grip. He has tried it on himself and several citizens of Trenton and they have pulled through: One level teaspoonful of soda dissolved in, say, half a glass of water. Take this every two hours until soreness and head ache are gone, and then take one extra dose for good measure. It is better not to hike a dose just be fore or just after eating. Rattlesnake Bob Gardner, one of Governor Tillman's most efficient liquor constables, who has been stationed in Charleet-.Mi since his appointment, will move to that city this week. Rattlesnake says that whenever he would leave the city for a few days which was nec essarily the case while his fami y was in Edgefield, the Charleston people would kick up all manner of devilment. For this reason he finds it necessary to become a fixture in the "city by the sea." Col. William P. Butler dropped dead at the house of his son-in-law Dr. W. S. Nicholson, near Elm wood, in this county Monday morning of this week. Col. Butler was s-iveniv-eight years of age, and had lived in Edgefield all h's life, a greater part of the time merchandizing in our town. Up to two or three years ago he lived on his plantation near Saluda, but failing health caused him to give up planting and at the time of his demise he was living with his daughter, Mrs Dr. Walter Nichol son.

There are already a thousand applicants. Greenwood having been foiled, Ninety-Six and McCormick are moving in the matter of having a new county for each. There is one thing sure that ail of us cannot have new counties. The grip may be said to be ?pid?mie in Edgefield county. It has invaded a great many homes already and few familes will escape the disease. Those who hnve not had it mav as well ex pect it and be prepared for il. The preparation necessary is simply to keep the system in good condition avoid draughts and exposure and when attacked stay in doors for at least a week. The special danger is of relapse, after you think your self recovered. Not infrequently pneumonia supervenes. More rarely a hacking cough comes on whijh runs into consumption. Always remember that the grip IP contagions. In severe attacks a physician should be summoned at once. List of Letters Remainihg in the post office at Edgefield C. H., S.

Afflictive Dispensation. The afflictions of the Cartledge family continue, and very myste rious is the disease that has caused so many deaths within two weeks. First Mr. S. C. Cartledge died after a few days, illness. Then the sec ond brother, Mr. Jerry Cartledge, who had visited his dying brother, died very suddenly. The death of the third brother, Mr. James Cart ledge, quickly followed. Next came the demise of Mrs. Jerry Cartledge. Now the news comes of the death of Mrs. S. C. Cart ledge and the critical illness of two of the seven orphans she leaves. The family is inched sorely afflict ed, and those members of it that still survive have the sympathy of the people of our entire county. Weather for December. Weather Observer C. A.

Some time before Christmas the good people of Edgefield contrib uted a box of clothiug, blankets, etc., for the sufferers from the cyclone in Beaufort county. The railroads kindly forwarded the box free of freight charges, and it reached its destination on the 28th of December. The gentleman who distributed the articles to the needy onesjwrites as follows : "Everything in the box was highly appreciated and distributed to those most in need. Some of the things were given to a young white man. Charles Clement, who with wife and babe had to leave their house in the raging storm and walk half a mile to seek shelter at Bolan Hall. Their home was totally destroyed and the few things they found scat tered about the morning after the storm have since been burned. Their little baby died from the ter rible exposure. We gave garments to another white family of nine, who had lost their crop and were very destitute. We found the children barefooted and scantily clad. They were very grateful and glad to get anything. One negro woman laughed at a great rate, ghe was so delighted at her share of the contents of the box. We gave a shirt and pair of pants to a colored man who said: "I'se mighty glad tor dese, fer I dess wear my trunk right now." All to whom the things were given expressed their fervent gratitude to the kind donors." How Edgefield Spent Christmas. A Charming Resume. DEAR ADVERTISER: Christmas passed away delightfully to almost everyone in Edgefield. Holly, mistletoe, and smilax decor ted arch and nook. Fireworks, and gifts, roast turkey, plum pudding, cake, fruits, and nuts made glad, and brightened this festival of the year. Several delightful partis were given during the holidays, Mis* Mamie Gwaltuey gave a quaint and lovely entertainment to her pupils. Each girl and boy received fruits and bonbons and each little maid was caught and kissed under the mistletoe b-nigh. We have had several fair visi tors during the season; Miss Mamie Norris from the Columbia College for Women, who is called "the queen"-a graceful title is it not? The Misses Thompson from the Atlantic coast uear Wilmington, visited their vivacious and popu lar sister Mrs. Fisher. Miss Sophie Swearingen, nieca of Gov. Tillman, and Miss Jeni Addison also augmented the pie! ure of the holidays by their pu euee in our midst. The dramatic enter!ainmei "Hick'ry Farm," given by IV Weaver, of Charleston, Mr. ai Mrs. McGowan Simkins, Mi Lewis, Mr. Kennerly, Mr. Asbi and Mr. Charles Griffin was br: liant and spicy. This play w for a worthy object, the Confe erate monument. It had a run two nights and proved quite "hit," and was played before large and cultured audience. M Weaver has fine dramatic talen We wish earnestly that he wou! bring before the Edgefield publ "The Hidden Hand," with Mr Simkins in the role of Capito Black, and himself as Black Doi aid, ibe outlaw. We know it woul be grand. The beauty of this pla was especially enhanced by tl fact that it was played in the ne and well lighted Opera Hou6ewit good stage and lovely scener Miss Levis closed the secon nights performance with a reciti tion. Her elocution is spiritec and she looked radiant in _ a coi tuuie of violet silk with garnitui of point lace and jet. We have not yet heard Mr. Brat ham, the new Methodist ministe Dr. Gwaltney's sermoiiB on eac Sunday are enjoyed by all wh hear him. The Bible class in the Baptii Sunday-school is superior to wha it has been in our memory. 1 seems that Gov. Sheppard bring (he knowledge and n-search c overy age and every nationality be fore us. How can a lawyer be s conversant with Biblical lore? H told us during our last lesson, tba the present great financial strai: was caused by the greed of thos great Northern capitalists who ar closing down on and crushing th life out of our land. We though Satan, the devil, has the fagots ii readiness for those same capitalists The great theme of the age no\ is foreign missions. The Woman' Mission Society of the Baptis Church here are holding praye meetings every afternoon this wee] for missions. These meetings ar conducted by the women of thi society. Wednesday afternoon the mite barrels will be opene< and the contents used as a Christ mas offering to the Japanese, ii their "sea girt Isle." We think a this present time that there is onb one nation which has not heart the gospel, and that is Thibet. Well we have bound some of thi latect items into a fragrau wreath (?) and now can abso lutely think of nothing more. XANTIPPE. Good Letter From Upper Clioty MR EOITOR: The year 1893 bal gone, and '94 has brought man} changes in this section. Having lived here" twenty-five years, we have never seen so muct moving, and neaily every fannel is trying to better bis condition All are settling down to business airain, in spite of hard times. We hardly know how to begin but all have the same determination ir them, and as they reflect upon the past,will try to improve in future Why can't the farmers be prevailed upon this year to raise sufficient at home to live on and kt cotton alone. 1S93 was the hardest year the farmers have evei experienced but the most of them have more to begin on this year than they had last year. 1894 will be a hard pull for us. Mr. Editor, as an educator of the people put your shoulder to the wheel and make a long pull and a strojg pull to make the people understand that they oau't eat cotton. When the farmer 6uffer8,editors, merchants, and all suffer. But as I write, echo seems to answer "no cotton." Cotton is our ruin ; however cotton and poli ties seem to be the go. Speaking of politics there would be less talk if some of the little anti papers would stop their howl ing. They aro only strengthening Tillman with the peopb. If they would stop villifying Tillman and his party, the people would soon get together again, aud be one party, The articles of your next door neighbor writing about the June Bug legislature, only hurtp himself. If the "Big Paper" were to tie a string around the logs of Parks and Yeldell they would fly away with string "Big Paper and all and not break their legs either, but wa are for Tillman first last and all the time, and look foi ward to the time when his voice will ring ip the United States Senate and John Gary Evans or Unole Hodge be Governor, .The grip is pretty general in this section. Nearly every family haa a case of it. It was a grief to us to hear of the death of Sam, Jerry, and Dr. Cartledge. They are almost like home folks with us. We hope the gnp will soon be no more, and the two parties will get together and will all have a good time. ENCORE. I Franklin, S. C. A Home-Coniing in Old Meri wether. MR. EDITOR: There seems to have been a general home-coming around hr re of late, and general visiting, dining, and stir among the }roung folks. Mr. W. G. Harris, Jr., came home about six weeks ago from his post of business in Columbia, to visit his parents. Dr. H. H. Townes returned home in November from his trip to Washington, D. C. Mr. Walter Bunch, whose home is now in Columbia, made a visit of two days to his old home. Mrs. T. E. Medlock has returned home from a two months' visit to her niece, Mrs. James Mathis, near Williston, S.C. Miss Letha DeLaughter has re turned homo, also bringing with her her sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. James Mathis and their daughter, little Melvie, fora visit to their aunts, Misses Fannie and Melvie Lanier, who gave a dining cn Christmas day in their honor. Mr. W. G. Harris also had a dining on that day for his friends. Mr. John Luther Briggs is at home on vaca'iou from Clemson College: Miss Lucy Briggs has returned home from her visit to relatives at Grovetown, Ga. Miss Faunie McKie is spending some time just now with Misses Essie and Dora Mays. Miss Julia McKie has been faith ful to the sick, Mrs. Annie Ransey, (Col. Pick Butler's daughter), has been ve;y ill for some time, but is better. Then MissJulia went to nurse her uncle, aunt, and cousin, Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie Hammond and Miss Annie McKie, who were all down with the grippe. . Mr. and Mrs. Tom McKie and Messrs. George and Cook McKie have had grippe. Also Miss Lucy McKie and Mrs. J. J. Bunch. Miss Lucy McKie has had one of her school mates and friends, Miss May Humphries, of Windsor. S. C., visiting her during the Chris mas holidays, and all were sorry to see the pretty, winsome little crea ture leave our neighborhood. She will visit relatives in Aiken city before she goes home. She had several dinings given in her honor. Mrs. J. W. Mundy gave her a so ciable and dance on the night of the 30th of December, and the young gentlemen and ladies of lower Meriwether gave her a very enjoyable party at the Alliance Hall on the night of Jan. 7th. Mr. Mattie Kate Rambo is on a visit to Judge Getzen's daughter,' Miss Katie Getzen, near Hamburg. Mrs. Albert Miller spent Christ mas at home with her father, Mr. Harrison Butler. Miss Fannie May Burkhalter and her brothers, Dr. John and Cook Burkhalter, have been on a visit to their grandmother, Mrs. Fannie Hammond. Mrs. Dr. Burkhalter with her three little children have moved down to make their home with her mother. Christmas was very quiet here. No calling "Christmas gift," or shooting fire crackers, or playing harmonicas to remind us of days gone by never to return. No drink ing even among the negroes. New Year dawned bright and beautiful, and let us hope the entire year may prove bright and happy for all of us. Wishing all prosperity and happiness and success to the dear old ADVERTISER. DOTS. Meriwether, S. C. Christmas at Red Hill. MR. EDITOR ; Christmas of 1893 has passed away, but carries with it into the clark shadows of obliv ion many pleasant reminiscences. While the old year was passing its last week of existence, Red Hill Church was being beautifully and artistically decorated by the pretty school girls under the supervision of their teacher, Miss Lizzie Bo hanan, for the promised entertain ment and Christmas tree. This unique and very appropriate entertainment was hastily gotten up by Red Hill's efficient teacher and her pretty girl pupils in com memoration of the birth of Christ. An arch of a beautiful silver tint on which was "Light of the World" charmingly decorated in raised letters of evergreen. Under neath was hanging in transparency the word "Jesus." Twentv-two of tho pupils oame upon the stand holding in view each a letter and repeating a proverb commencing with the lotter and making the motto, "Glory to God in the High est." There were lovely sc uga by the girls and appropriate and short ad dresses by Messrs. A. J. McDaniel, P. H. Barney, and AV. L. Holmes; then the Christmas tree is attacked and relieved of its many and beau-; tiful presents. RADCLIFF. Cold Spring, S. C.

LAURENS, January 5.-The Coun ty Alliance met to-day. About forty delegates were present. Speeches were made by Dr. Samp son Pope and Senator Irby. Non members of the Alliance, but in sympathy with it, were admitted to the speaking,. The following resolution^ offered by J. -Andy Jones werepassed unaimously by the Alliance. "Be it resolved by the county Alliance now assembled. First. That the Alliancemen of Laurens county reasert their allagience to the 'principles of the nation al and State Alliance and all the planks of the Ocala plat form ; and that a candidate whose stomach is too weak to swallow it need not expect our support. Second. That in State politics, as members of the Democratic party, and as believers in and as members of the reform movement of that party, we approve of the calling of a convention to name candidates who are in accord with it to be voted for in the general primary election ; but we insistas a matter of righf. that the convention shall not be held sooner than the first of July of this year, for the reason that we want to, see and hear the sentiments of the candi dates among the Reformers. To do otherwise is f orestalling the people and re-enacting tae tricks of the ring that controlled this State, so long-to wit: the naming of candidates who are tin known to the masseB of this State and in whose candidacy they have not participated. "Third. We hold ourselves bound to support tho nominees of the July convention in the pri mary election io September but demand that simon pure Re formers be named, men against whom naught can be said as to their loyalty to truth, to the Al liance and to the Reform move ment. Fourth. That great care must be used, both in calling and hold the the township and county primary conventions, to send dele gates to said State July conven tion, and we recommend that Governor Tillman select three Reformers who will act with him and draft rules for the calling and holding of said township and count}7 primary conventions, so that none but Reformers will participate in the election of flakgfttefl to thc July State conven tion, and that the four gentlemen referred to above, call the said July convention, if such be thc sentiment of the Reform move ment. "Fifth. That we further suggest that in the naming of candidates from United States Senator to Adjutant and Inspector General, the convention Bhall not ignore that element in the Reform faction who are non-Alliancemen and ineligible to membership in the Alliance, but who are true to the principles of the Alliaace and the Reform factiou. "Sixth. That the Laurensville Herald, the Columbia Daily Reg ister, the Cotton Plant, Piedmont Headlight and other Reform papers in the State, are requested to publish these resolutions." Resolutions were offered by County Auditor 0. G. Thompson, and adopted, condemning the "factious aud criminal opposition of anti-reform leaders and news papers to the dispensary lasv," holding them responsible for the troubles in enforoing it and parti oulatly the recent bloodshed and whipping in Spartanburg, and pledging the Alliance to uphold Governor Tillman in his efforts to make the law effectual.
