TlIOS, J. ADAMS? PROPRIETOR EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNES ; RY '?8, 1895. VOL LIX. NO. 52: IN FLOOr? TIME. Unique Scenes in the Sugar Dis trict of Louisiana. Entire Plantations Covered by a Wild Waste of Waters. The cane-sugar district of Louisi ana is very flat and intersected all over with a net-work of back-water streams called bayous. The tides from the ocean and the floods from the Father of Waters steal noiselessly 'back and forth through thom. This constant ebb and flow cuts them out very deep, but not wide on account of the tenacious banks formed hythe rank vegetation with which they are generally bordered. They are navi gable wat?rways for craft that are not too broad in tho beam. One will not travel far before coming upon one of these bayous, and by parting the bushes and weeds will see a narrow lagoon-like stream that it may appear possible to wade, but it will provo very deceptive as to depth. Present ly perhaps a throbbing noise will bo heard, and a schooner in tow of a tug will appear wedging its way between the palisades of moss-hung cypress and arching water-oak. Over on the Mississippi side of the country the river is kept in by Government levees, supplemented sometimes by private ones of a better nature, which the planters put up behind the works of the Government for additional protec tion. Often the river is higher than the surrounding country, and one sees pairs of steamboat stacks moving noiselessly along above the treetops. In one instance, midway between the coast and the river, the levee broke, and some of tho inhabitants knew nothing about it at the time. The water in the bayous rose up high er and higher on the trunks of the cypress trees, and no return tide from the ocean rushed it back and let it down again. The ditches were filled with water noiselessly from this di rection and from that. Not a drop of rain had fallen for some days, but the ground beoamo soggy, and by night the cano fields were under water, and the fences floated away, and in the morning the people went around the down-stairs part of tho house in boats. Generally those who are liable to be affected are kept posted, for the Father of Waters is a common enemy, and at critical times the neighbors will carry news to neighbors, and all rush to the front forgetting animosities and race lines, and labor ceaselessly day and night in their efforts to hem in the rising flood of tho mighty river. Many are tho feurts that aro healed during tho anxiety of a night on a dangerous levee. Those who livo in regions high and dry can scarcely imagine the scenes incident to an occasion of this kind. Tho piano is shoved out on the lawn, ready to be swung by ropes to the up per balcony if it is too big to go up the staircase, and it generally is. The books in the library are taken to the second story or tho garrett ; ditto, the mattings, carpets, pictures, portieres, curtains and upholstered furniture. Tho colored people have their own ef fects to keep dry and are unavailable, and it devolves upon the members of the family to save what they prize most highly. The stable boss, of course, is away, and one of the family has to go down with the lantern and turn the horses out, so they can swim if they have to. Tho doors of the sugar house have to be closed to keep things that .will flout from drifting away. It be gins to rain and articles on tho lawn are in dauger while waiting elevation to the balcony. Later on, as the water deepens, thc downstairs shutters aro "closed to keep drifting matter from breaking the glass, and it is now so high that the things are removed from the upper drawers and shelves by lwat, those lower down having been.attended to first, and the stair case is used for a landing. Last of all the lamps are taken ont of the chan deliers and handed up, and tffe lower part of tho house is left in dampness and darkness. Morn ing comes, and all is water. A steamboat pushes in through the floating fences, that aro beginning to wind off like hugo sea serpents, to learn if anything is wanted. Many other things happen before the flood goes down, which it finally does, leav ing dead cattle boats, barrels and all kinds of odd things in the branches of the trees along the avenue. Then comes the cleaning up of the house, and moving down again. It is sur prising few minnow fish are dead in the mud cn tho hearth itones, and a crawfish is making tracks through tho scum on tho floor. But tho damage to tho house is trivial compared to that done to tho plantation.-Now York Tribune. Chinese Swells in Winter Costume. Leaving tho Hotel Des Colonies, in the foreign quarter of Shanghai, writes Frank G. Carpenter, I rode in a jinriksha, pulled by two men, far out into tho country. Tho day was cold, raw and rainy, but I decided to risk nrrest by taking my camera with me, and, wrapped in oiled silk, it lay between my legs as we dashed through the muddy streets crowded with bare legged coolies in hats as big as um brellas and rain coats of a reddish brown jute, who were carrying heavy loads swung on poles from their shoul ders. We passed many women in blue gowns of wadded cotton, who hobbled along on the sides of their little feet through the mud with a knock-kneed gait, and met at every turn the 'rikshas and sedan chairs of swell Chinamen, whose eybs were so shrouded by their big black spectacles that they looked like Gargantuan brownies rather than scholarly Chi ^_'__s_ _'_ * ' ?

A new planing macliine is worked by electricity, and will* do the work of fifty men in one day. Some botanist think that no plant ie absolutely poisonous, but only rela tively so, being harmful to only cer tain animals. Some of tho colored paper supplied for kindergarten work has been proved by nnalysis to contain a small quantity of arsenic In South America an electric dry ing machine in which air is forced through a chamber of heated plates is to bo used in drying wheat. Dr. Sophia Jex-Blake of London, says that too much toa, especially tea that is simmered over the fire for hours, is worse than too much ab sinthe. No parental care ever falls to tho lot of a single member of the insect tribe. In general,, the eggs of an in sect are destined to be hatched long after the parents are dead. The fleeces of sheep in Australia are growing lighter every year . ow ing to nature's method of meet ing the conditions of climate. In England they are heavier for the same reason. C. The making of water pipes out of paper pulp is said to have mot with great success. It is claimed that they are as durable as iron, and tho procsse of moulding them is about the same in both cases. The death of a young woman in the castle near Nyirogyhaza in Hungary, while under the inflnenco of hypno tism, is much commented upon. The victim had been induced to simulate a consumptative and died from sudden terror. The City Kai?road Company of Ber lin, Germany, has adopted the nickle in-the-slot plan for selling tickets dur ing the busy hours. The improved machines aro so constructed that the coin drops out again if a wrong one has been put in, or if there are no more tickets. A dispatch from Ishpeming, Mich., states that as men are prospective for a continuation of the Bopes gold mine vein a short distance from the main shaft rock containing bismuth, a min eral entirely new to the Upper Penin sula, was observed. From present in dications a large quantity of the min eral exists WclI-BuiT Southern Houses. While the colonists of New Eng land commonly dispensed with brick and stone in tho construction of their snog and friendly domiciles-those yellow colonial mansions which con stitute a feature so characteristic in the Northern landscape-the planters of Maryland and Virginia built them selves substantial Btrnctures of im ported brick, and aspired to tho archi tectural distinctions of Queen Anne end the Georges. One of the manor born, who has written with loving knowledge of theso solid and sincero old houses, has told of tho noblo join ery of tho roof; of the deep, capa cious window-seats and hearthstones, prodigal of space ; of great halls that greet you with the largest w?leome ; of "stairs that glide rather than climb" to the floor above, where is the dancing-hall or assembly room ; of carved chimney-pieces, paneled wains coting, and Italian cornices; of the later piazzas and porticos that came in after the Bevolution ; and of the hip roofed homes of the burghers of Annapolis, with their huddled chim ney-stacks and low ceilings, their cor nered fireplaces and dormer windows, with a multitude of little panes in tho broad sashes, and tho shining faces of the brass knockers, so expressive of homely kindness; and withont, tho arbor and the dove-cote, and the prim, box-edged garden, with its walks so decorous and Dutch-like, but gor geous with lilacs and snowballs, holly hooks, and wall-flowers.-Century. Shower Baths for Horses. They do a queer but very sensible thing to the car horses in New York in hot weather. The horses are kept outside, not in the heated stables, and are put in a row face to tho sidewalk. One of the stable men has a bose which ht? turns on the horses every little while. The stream of water is first sent on their backs then on the head and as it comes down the row, the horses that have not been wet lcok up to see when their turn is coming. They appear to like it, and no won der. Probably many a boy or girl walking along in tho heat would like it too.-Now York Advertiser. Thc Talk Flagged. An American girl, on being asked by a certain pompous and self satisfied Lord Soniebodj'-or-Other among whal people she had met tho most perfect, polished and cultured gontlemen, she replied sweetly : ""Among the Brit ish nobility, my lord." "Yes," said tho questioner beamingly, "I felt very suro yon would so reply ; and among what peoplo havo you encountered thf exact reverse, if I may ask?" "Among tho British nobility, my lord," ans wered tho Indy without hesitation, whereupon the conversation flagged. San Francisco Argonaut In thc Penitentiary. Thief-How do you Uko your now quarters?

It is a profession that seems peculiarly fitted to them, while they know, as few mon can, exactly what a house should he. In a certain village a rich widow, who owns a great many houses, has planned everyone of them herself and with uniform success. This being done with no training for it, one wonders what would be the re sult of study.-St. Louis Star say Sayings. COURAGEOUS WOMEN. A surgeon on an Atlantic steamship line says that in his wide experience he has found women on the whole cooler and more self-possessed than man in cases of disnster at sea, and, according to the report of the passen gers on tho ill-fated Oregon, which was wrecked some years ago, the women behaved with remarkable calm ness. In describing the disaster, one of tho passengers, Mr. S. Newton Bench, of London, said: "The cool est persons on board were the ladies, as thoy always are when tho case ia not one of a mouse, but one of real danger. "-New York Journal. COOKING AS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT. The latest excitement in Paris smari society is tho pursuit of cooking as an accomplishment. Cooking soirees are frequent, and it goes without saying that the art attains greater excellence among tho French belles' than it ever has when countenanced by English or American dames of high degree. Frenchwomen are born cooks; their present caprice merely demonstrates that this hereditary instinct is not con fined to any one class. At a recent reception at the splendid home of a Princess, a refreshment bar was fitted up in the drawing room, at which the guests were supplied with warm dishes broiled, roasted and sauted on ele gant cook stoves by very aristocratic young women. The men, it is said, could not eat enough in their anxiety to show their appreciation of the novel institution and its charming promoters.-New York Times. WRAPPERS AND CURL PAPERS. The almost universal use of ready made dresses has had one salutary ef fect on the women of the present gen eration. The shirt waist and blouse have had much to do with the exceed ingly trim and dainty appearance of our young women as they go about the house. Timo was when the wrapper was tho accepted morning dress of nineteen-twentieths of the women of the country. Indeed, it was extremely fashionable and therefore eminently proper, but it had a semi-demoralizing tendency that the world is very much better without. Negligeo is unbecom ing and unsuitable outside of one's own apartment, and Fashion, for once a sensible and clear-headed dame, haa decreed that the wrapper and curl papers are not to be seen below stairs, or later than breakfast time. It takes a littlo longer to dress ia reasonably good taste and come down looking fresh and bright, but it certainly pays even though one must rise a few mo ments earlier to bring about this re sult. It is easy enough, if ono takes a littlo forethought to provide dainty waists and simple and becoming skirts. These, with a corsolet or belt, can be adjusted in a moment almost as easily as one can get into an ordinary wrap per, and when tho effect is taken into consideration, there is much to be said in favor of this manner of dress ing that few thoughtful young women would be willing to go back to tho curl papers and wrappers of tho last generation.-New York Ledger. FA8HION NOTES. Alsatian bow effects in short plumes are among the novelty hat trimmings. Long Angora mousquetaire gloves are worn over evening gloves in placo of using a muff. Dainty evening capes, hats and muffs of velvet, fur, laco and ribbon arc to bc worn en suite. Covert coating holds its own, and may bo had in every color, with a view to tailor-made gowns. Little pompon trimmings standing upright over the forehead are much liked for stylish young women. Many full capes of tan livery ' cloth are simply made of fine goods and having a turn-over velvet collar. Girls' cloaks are made of light-col ored ladies' cloth,- trimmed with a collarette and edging of ermine tails. Elbow longth capes of black velvet have a jet collar and yoko and long "stole" ends in front covered with jet. A sealskin cape made in full ruffle fashion with a longer capo of ermine is new and stylish, and expensive as well. Capes are growing longer, and, as the colder days como on, they will in crease in length and bo of heavier ma terial. Sardinia cloth is charming in blue and groon ; it is also made in golden brown, and recalls the effect of a pheasant's plumage. Gloves of black undressed kids are fashionable. Thoy aro not always com fortable to wear,and should bo avoided by ladies whose hands have tho slight est inclination to jicrspire. The now woolen materials aro per haps moro universally interesting at present than the silks, and there is a charming variety of patterns. One of tho greatest novelties is a black di agonal, figured with tiny colored silk spots in various sizes, tho pink looking particularly effective. This material is being greatly used for winter blouses. 1 Health and Housekeeping. * "It is a cowardly thing to say, and I can't allow my name to be printed, but it is a fact that the faulty house keeping in modern life is responsible for needless and fatal diseases among children. There are the stuffy, stylish (?) cozy corners that are written up and illustrated until one is sick and tired of them; lhere are the dust-la den sofa cushions and the dirty parlor rugs over carpets-a double nuisance that a good beating would destroy com- J pletely ; there are the uqkept, uphol stered chairs and couches and the nev er clean, alwaya-to-be-feared hangings and draperies on table and mantel shelves end in windows and door frames. "What we need is more clean air, more sparo room and 60 per cent less furniture and offenses against art.

Although by many believed to be incura ble, there ?9 the evidence of hundreds of living witnesses to the fact that, in all its' earlier stages, consumption is a curable disease. Not every case, but a large per centage of cases, and we believe, ?illy 98 ?er cent, are cured by Dr. Pierce's Golden [edical Discovery, even after the disease has progressed so far as to induce repeated bleedings from, the lungs, severe lingering cough with copious expectoration (includ ing tubercular matter), great loss of flesh and extreme emaciation and. weakness. Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases reported to us as cured by '* Golden Med ical Discovery " were genuine cases ofthat dread and fatal disease ? You need not take our word for iL They have, in nearly every instance, been so pronounced by thc best and most experienced home physicians, who have no interest whatever in mis representing them, and who were often' strongly prejudiced and advised against a trial of "Golden Medical Discovery," but who have been forced to confess that it surpasses, in curative power over this' fatal malady, all other medicines 'with which they are acquainted. Nasty cod liver oil and its filthy "emulsions" and mixtures, had been tried in nearly all these cases and had either utterly failed to bene fit, or had only seemed to benefit a little for a short time.
