WEDNESDAY, FEB. 28,1894. L0CAL2 BREVITIES. It has rained every Sunday dur ing this month, except the last, and ou that day it sleeted. Mr. Hord Allen is attending to the duties of the Probate Judge's office during Judge J. D. Allen's . illness. We regret to learn of the illness of Mr. D. R. Durisoe, of our town, who is, however, some better this, Tuesday, morning. In this issue of the ADVERTISER Clerk John B. Hill applies for let ters of administration on the estate of Ira P. Culbreath, deceased. The sale of the effects of the late Mrs. J. E. Cartledge at the residence of the late Benj. Ouzts, - has been postponed until Friday, March 16. Candidates for county offices and th?1 Legislature, generally declare themselves during the spring term . of court. Look out for develop ments next week. Collector Townes has not yet . made his appointment of au Edge field county deputy. We think he has determined on the man but has not yet made it public. Dr. Bob Mason, of the Gilgal section, said on last Saturday while the snow was falling, that he hoped it would get three feet deep for it would "bustup the grip". An exchange says that tho mau who named his hen "Macduff" so he could command her to "lay on," ha* a brother who named his roos ter "Robinson" because he "crew so." Gen. Butler is booked to speak in the court-house next Monday. Let every farmer atteud who can, no matter where he stands politi cally, as between Butler and Till man. A correspondent of The Edge field Advertiser pays a beautiful tribute to the nine members of the Cartledge family who died near Batesburg in one month.-Aiken Times. Go/. Tillman offers a reward of one hundred dollars for the cap ture a.id conviction of the person or persons who set fire to Maj. J. M. Dom's barn and stables on Feb. 16. We commence this week the publication on our outside of a most thrilling serial, "At Love's Commaud." It will probably run through twenty issues. Now is the time to subscribe. ?^?HMarried, on the evening of the 21st of February, at the home of the bride's parents, Ridge Spring, 8:30 p. rn, Rev. J. B. Tray wick officiating, Mr. F. R. Timmons, Jr., and Miss Orlena Quarles. , Auditor Haltiwangsr, who has finished his rounds through the county assessing property, says that the people living in the coun try have returned their real and personal estate, generally speaking, at fair valuation, but he cannot say as much of all classes of citi zens. The farmers of Edgefield did a good thiug when they organized the Edgefield County Mutual Fin Insurance Company. A fire insur ance company operated on the same plan has been doing busi ness in Kentucky for twenty years, and the annual cost is only $2 per thousand dollars of insurance. Au effort is being made bv the Y. M. C. A. to get Mr. John Lake, of Edgefield, to hold a series of meetings here in the interest of young men at an early date. Mr. Lake was here in attendance on the recent convention of the Y.M. C. A., and made a most favorable impression on all who came in con tact with him.-Sumter Freeiyan. "How, when, where, -ind why Jim' Bigham was mistaken for an owl"-a thrilling narrative, which will be given in these columns as Eoon as we can get access to the records. In the days of which we speak when this groat mistake was made Jim was an anti. Of course noone would mistake him foran owl now, since his memorable con version. It's getting high time, beloved, for 3'ou to put on the golden slip pers of reform and bo ready for the campaign of 1894, which will be on us in full blast by the ides of March. Come up during court week and subscribe for the ADVER TISER, or pay up if you're already a subscriber, and let us, like John Paul Jones and the Bonhomme Richard go down the annals of time together. "Crawford's Claim, or Nugget Nell, the Pet of Poker Flat," a drama in prologue and three acts, under the management of Prof. B. C. Weaver, will be presented on Friday evening, Ma ch 9th, at the Opera House at Edgefield, for the benefit of the Y. M. C. A. "Craw ford's Claim" is a play that has mot with dec'ded appr ?val, is hu morous, thrilling, emotional, and picturesque. A laughable Irish man, a blundering Chinaman, a simpering old maid, a conniving actor, a patent medicine crank, and a wonderful card scone. The open ing scone occurs in Now York, the last.acts in tho mining districis of Nevada. The action is brisk and strong, the language, terse and effective, while the climaxes are thrilling and never fail on "cur tain calls." General admission, g5c. Reserved seats, 35c.

An Irishman well described tl grip "as a disease that keeps ye sick ihree weeks after you g well." The War Department ha? shi] ped several hundred guns 1 Clemson College for the use of tl cadets. The Japenese say : "A man take a drink, then the drink takes drink, and the next drink take the man." Evidently the Japans have been there. The Legislature at its recer. session prohibited the killing c capturing and selling of partridge and quail for five years. Th penalty is $10 for each bird Bold. The depth of the snow and slee which fell on Saturda> and Sun day varies, according to the menta and moral diathesis of the partie figuring on it, from B?X inches to foot. We are informed that the pas tors of the Grauiteville Methodis and Baptist churches have freely expressed themselves .as pleasei with the Dispensary as a mora agent. A car driver in Sheboygai Mich,, has been discharged be cause it wai discovered that shi was a woman. The gender of i Sheboygander is, naturally, a littli perplexing. A doctor in Penrith aunounce: as the latest remedy for toothache, that the mouth must be filled witt cream ; then the head is to bi humped against the wall till the cream turns to butter. The Abbeville papers say tba the matter of building the Cum berland Gap from Edgefield totha town is being agitated again. Th< Press and Banner favors the build ing of the road but uuder an en tirely new scheme from the ancien one. Bi.'ls of sale, liens for rent anc advances, mortgages, tilles, a new lot, for sale at this office. We have a lien in stock the verbiage of which, dictated by a distin guished lawyer of the Edgefield bar, is guaranteed to hold a nigger a mule, or an eel. "Did the snow storm of Saturday and Sunday destroy the fruit crop'i Will it injure the small grain?' These are the questions of ques tions just n JW. The daily papers oi this morning, Monday, say that peaches have been killed, and also figs and pears, all over the country, Easter Sunday this year will be the 25th of March, as it was in 1883, and only three Easter Sun days iu the niueteeth century have been at so early a date : March 22, in 1818, and March 23, in 1845 and 1856. The latest date of any Easter Sunday in this century was April 25, 1886. The district conference of the Woman's Missionary Society, M. E. Church, will be held at Ridge Spring on Friday, March 16th. Mrs. M. D. Wightman will preside over this meeting. Mrs. J. W. Landcr,a missionary to Brazil, will be present, and on Sunday follow ing Rev. J. C. Kilgo will preach These facts ought to induce a large attendance. See Miss Lou P. Gary's notice elsewhere in this paper. There are persons in Edgefield county that object to the dispen sary law because under its opera tion they eau buy whiskey but once a day. They'' say it abridges in that respect the liberty and in alienable right handed down to them from old Father Noah. But what atribute this objection is to the law itself, and we have no doubt the bar-room men make the same objection, for it abridges their right, a3 they can't Reil even once a day. That was a good answer our friend Sam Smith recently gave to an anti who objected to the dispen sary law because his house could be searched for contraband liquor. "Well," said Sam, "they may search your house, because you are a suspicious character and will bear watching, but they'll never search mine, and every ninety-nine citizens out of a hundred need have no fear, because no reputable person would make affidavit that they had contraband liquors." We heard a prominent member of the Egefield bar, and au auti at toat,say recently, that it was "fash ionable on bis side of the house to decry Tillman, but he bedad Bquiz zled if Tillman wasn't right in his fight with the railroads, and he hoped he would whip 'em, and he believed ho would; that railroad property to his own knowledge wasn't assessed any higher, and in many instances not so high, as the property of individuals; the rail road folks were simply lying when they said to the contrary." 4??~ Mr. J. W. Peak, late of McCormick, has oponed a Racket Store in tho rooms recently vacated by Mr. W. H. Turnor, next door to the postoffice. It is unnecessary to inform our readers that racket goods are sold cheap, cheaper than the same goods are sold anywhere else, and in the dry goods and no tion lines are full and complete in ??most every department. Let everybody go and see those goods and get the prices, our word for it, you will be astoundod, utterly dumbfounded. Mr. Peak is con nected with the mammoth estab ishment of C. B. Rouse, of New V/ork City, and will sell you any thing you want, from a paper of needles to a locomotive. The quarterly statement of th< Dispensary, up to February let shows a profit of about $100,000 tc the State. The same profit for f year would be $400,000, nearl) enough to pay all our State taxes People who believe in signs will doubtless find something new in the following. It is unlucky to be struck by lightning on Monday. To sit on a circular saw in motion on Tuesday. To g?t wet when you fall overboard on Wednesday. To fall down stairs with a coal scuttle of coal on Tursday. To see a tax collector over your shoulder on Fridav. To marry a girl on Saturday who practices with ten pound dumb bells. To be one of sixteen at the table on Sunday when there is only food for six. The Sin of Newspapers. Greenville Mountaineer, (Anti.) The constant misrepresentation of public affairs is au alarming evil of our times. The disposition seems to be growing that the most unfavorable light is to be thrown upon any und every thing with which we do not agree. This is an era of extravagant assumption and reckless statement concerning the opposition, whether political or otherwise, but it is especially true in our politic? that needless and hurtful assertions arc made with out regard to the boundaries of truth. Perhaps the dispensary law and its administration has borne the brant of more needless distor tions in thi8way than anything of recent times. At any rate it will do for au illustration of the evil to which we have called attention, and we will cite a few facts to sus tain the position. The assertion is constantly made that a dispensary constable has the right to enter private dwel lings and search for liquors even in the most private apartments without a warrant. A great deal of righteous indignation has been turned loose against this alleged provision of the law, when the fact is that there is no such authority given to the constables under the law and the instructions issued by the State board of control expressly states the ?PW to the contrary, as follows r'The right to search with out a warrant applies only to places of business and public places-and in all cases where liquor is believed to be in private residences and is being sold, search warrants must bs issued." It bas been denied time and again that constables are clothed with the au thority to enter private dwellings, and yet scarcely a week passes that we do not come across the most bittor denuciation of the law be cause private residences are open to search without a warrant being issued. The State board of control has ordered that raids shall be made upon places where liquor is stored away in quantities greater than five gallons, unless the owners shall securo certificates from the liquor commissioner entitling them to hold the liquor in their possession. This order is at once construed to mean that private residences aro to be searched to ascertain wheth er more than five gallons of liquor are kept for private use, when there is not a syllable to justify such a conclusion. The provision of the law under which the order has been issued plainly reveals the object which is to ascertain where liquor is stored in large quantities, and as a consequence to keep it under surveillance hereafter. No private rights are invaded, and the State is perfectly justifiable in keeping an oye opon stored li quors. Ou a certain day not long ago two or three dispensary constables visited Newberry, and it was heralded over the country that they were parading the streets with Winchester rifles, when there was not a word of truth in the state ment. Newspapers pitched into the high-handed methods of the constabulary, and compared them to the minions of Scott and Moses trying to overawe a free people. Corrections were made, it is true, but the false impression created has not been overtaken. The story is frequently repeated that the constable in Charleston, who was pardoned immediately after conviction had slapped a woman in thu face, when the proof was that he had struck her upon the shoulder, which he claimed was entirely accidental, and that he was not cognizant of the fact at any time. But the story got star ted that it was a slap in the face, and it is still doing duty for the exhibition of choleric bluster in regard to the protection of woman in South Carolina.

CORRESPONDENCE [For the ADVERTISER. A Bright and Breezy Letter from Old "Rip." MR. EDITOR: From a state oi dormancy I now emerge into the liveliest state of activity, feeling energy sufficient to give the latest from Choty (Western Edgefield.) Grippe has ravaged our section and frightened us muchly. How ever, we are still, to a man, on turra firma determined to stand by Tillman and reform so long as they continue to perform their duty in the future as in the past Speaking of grippe we are con vinced that it is only the effect of eating meat and going bare-footed in winter. After passing the summer meat less, we killed a few razor-backs, and being exceedingly wolfish we greased with extravagance inter nally; this brought ona heating re-action in our upper physiognomy while our lower extremities rested on the frozen ground. This produced a negative warmth, brought on "sneezerie," better known as la grippe, a word derived from thc aboriginees of "Skippers Georgia." Meat out and grippe gone is decisive Droof of above conclusions. Your fair correspondent "Aaron1' is on a prol mged visit to Aiken and vicinity. Who knows but that | she is drawn thither by some gal ant Moses. We are glad to say that J. Trapp McManus, of Meeting Street, has cast his lot among us for the fu ture. The bachelor home of G. M. Dom is now presided over by one of Modoc's belles, Miss May Waits, formerly of your town. The genial and buBinesB-like Luther Bell, together with affable and ever welcome Will Thurmond, paid usa flying visit on Sunday, the 11th inst. Will Thurmond is a thoroughly honest and reliable man, both socially and profes sionally. He is and has ever been a staunch supporter of Jeffersonian democracy and reform. The Pine Grove school is now under the care of an efficientyoung teacher, Miss Fannie Bussey, the winsome daughter of Mr. Pat Bus soy. Miss Carrie Wilson brought pleasure and sunshine to friends during the past week. Come again, Miss Carrie, a hearty welcome awaits yon.

For tunate patrons, is the sentiment of | more than RIP VAN WINKLE. Faifa, S. C. fFor the ADVERTIBBR. Epitome of the Reform Move-| ment. Well, the Shell Manifesto to which I referred in my last article was duly published and is now his tory. In accordance with this call, a| convention met in Columbia. Many people have questioned the right of tue Farmers' Association to call this convention, but I could not then see nor have I ever since seen the impropriety of any class of citizens calling a meeting in which to discuss their grievances, and from which to lay th ?ir com plaints before the public. While this Reform faction has probably been too rash in many things, still I think the original intentions were good, and my symp?thies have from the beginning been with the true Farmers' Movement. This March convention was very wise in pledging itself to fight for its de-1 mauds, wholly within the lines of j the democratic party so far as State politics were concerned, and Capt. Shell was on the right track when be said before the convention, "we do not want to forestall or dictate to the democratic party as has been charged, but we want a free and fair expression of the will of the party after the people have heard the issues discussed on the hust ings; and by the eternal God we intend to have it! * * * We want the majority to rule, and we propose to see that it does rule, and if it decides that we are wrong we will submit. If it decides that we are right our opponents must submit or bolt the ticket." In regard to office seeking Capt. Shell said that he was not seeking office, aud would not accept one if | tendered to him. This expression I have good rea sons to believe did not come from his heart, for we all know that he put himself befoie the people that same fall and was elecjgd to Berve a term in the Federal House of Representatives. Was his election not a natural result of the success of thc faction of which he was one of the recognized leaders? Was not tho nomination of Ben Till man ior Governor by that conven tion a natural result of the success of the faction of which he too was' i one of the recognized champions' J If any of us were to champion i cause of any kind would we no: ( upon its success, expect some favoi in return? Quite natural to do so and for Capt. Shell or Ben Till : man, or any other man to say while whooping up a faction that he did not want any office, nay more, to say that he would not ac cept an office if tendered to him, as both Shell and Tillman have said, is saying rather more than is warranted by human nature. In order to strengthen what I have said above concerning th? desire for office we will just men tion a few names in connection with this convention, and see where they have gone : Capt. Shell was chairman of the committee which called the con vention; he went to Congress the same fall. W. J. Talbert was chairman of the convention ; two years later he went to Congress. J. L. M. Irby was chairman of a committee in the convention and was elected chairman of the State Executive Committee, he went to the Federal Senate. J. E. Tindal presented the platform; we will find him later in the Governor's cabinet. B. R. Tillman was the prirre mover of the Reform faction ; the convention nominated him for Governor, and by the success of his faction he occupied the Gov ernor's chair. And so on, but I have named sufficient lo show you that when a man whoops up a fac tion he naturally wants to come in on the home stretch for his share of the spoils. I say naught of the above for the disparagement of the Reform Movement, but. only to show you that "politics is politics/' and that when a man comes to you with a "big thing" he comes not without a certain degree of hope of profit for himself. These are facts and are applicable to all fac tions and creeds whatsoever, and let me warn you, that when any man comes to you with a "dead sure thing" seemingly all on your side, you had always better take what he says "cum grano salis." It does not pay to jump into anything with both feet without due deliberation; that is why a good many people are dissatisfied with the Reform Movement, they expected everything that every body said about it was true, took it to be a panacea for all their political ills, therefore they were fooled. No, my friends,Jalway8 re member that every sweet has its bitter; every rose its thorns. W. H. H. (To be continued.) Lexington Dispatch copy. [For the ADVERTISER. Edgefield W. M. Auxiliary.
