WEDNESDAY, JULY ?.. 1895. L?0?L2 BREVITIES. "Oh ICdgclield, may I gu and speak?" '.Yes, my Dargin, eliigi;*.'r! Ifang your clothes on au union leak, ?.ut don't you go nigh toa nigger " Rabbit Meta) for sale at '.his office. The annual picnic ?*f the Edgefield I.iglil Dragoon? has been unavoidably postponed from Thursday ti.e is:li tu F.-iday the lu: h July. Always-sharp and to the point, Ram sey ..v. Bland? knives. Dr. Frank Bui 1er handed us a cotton blossom plucked on last Friday, Gie 28til .June. This is the first of the sea son. A bit of cash, and eager mind; a bargau sure al Ramsey & Bland' yotfll lind. Sherill' \V. II. Ouzts bas handed us a reply io Col. 1 larga n's interview in the State, and News and Courier which will appear next week. Mr. C. M. Williams picked np in the ( road bet ween-bis hon e and Edgefield one day of last week a pair ol' specta cles which lie will deliver to the owner on application. The great carriage works voluntari ly advanced wages ten per cern re cently. Ramsey & Inland keep up with the procession by reducing prices on summer goods. Some one went into Mr. Ab. Co va rs sweet potato patch a few days since and actually pulled up and carried away the slips he had but just set out. This is an entirely new form ol' the disease. It is nearly the loosest day of the year, and Ramsey *fc Uland make things balance by cutting prices to the shortest limit of the year. Ware and Stanley, photographers of Augusta Ga., are in town prepared to take pictures ol' the person, residence, grounds, &c, at reasonable rates. "Scratch" Whittle is the man who wanted to whip Dargan "all by him self." lie told Dargan that if he ano* his "wanted to go with the negro, to go, but to let nie and mine alone/' The indignities offered the ladies Of Col. Dargan'* family on last Wednes day, if any such were offered, are with out excuse, absolutely not to be de fended or condoned in Edgefield County or elsewhere. Ramsey ix Bland the furniture deal ers, don't sell sugar, but they have a choice lot of suits for the sweet bridal couple. The showers, which have been par tial up toa recent date, are becoming general, we believe, and the crops and gardens rejoice, and the people, too, for whether we live to eat or eat to live we must eat. Walk about town, inquire as to prices, and then drop into Ramsey & Bland's. No other suggestion is needed Messrs. Ware and Stanley, the Au gusta Photographers, took a photo graph of the Baptist Sunday School Convention while in session on last Friday. Copies can be had on appli cation to these gentlemen. Times are looking up. You are looking up bargains. Everything is looking up, and Ramsey ?Je Bland's trade is booming. We are requested to announce that the special committee of the grand jury will meet on the loth July, and remain in session until they have fin ished their work. H. B. Gallinan is foreman of the grand jury, and Alvin Hart is chairman of the special com mittee. The address of both of these gentlemen is Edgelield. Our Baptist church was full to over flowing last Sunday' morning lo hear the Rev. J L. Ouzts, who preached a most excellent sermon from the texti "The greatest of these is love." Mr' Ouzts has :i very striking personality -a remarkable face, strongly Roman in its contour and cast. There is great reserve power and force behind a physiogn omy like that. A Visit to North Carolina. C ocn it ANTON, P.A.-''Some years ago 1 had occasion to visit North Carolina, and while .here had one ol' my bilious attacks. Hearing, for the first time, of simmons Liver Regulator, I tried it. Not hing before had so tifectnally re lieved nie. 1 could in no way benefit ot hers more I han by putting such a leuivdy in their hands."- X. N. Shcp aod. Two Colonels. Capt. S. B.

Campaign Appointments. The following campaign appoint ments for Edgelield County have been made by the Edgelield Democratic Ex ecutive Committee : Mt. Willing, .July lCtll. Good Hope. " lsth. Mountain Creek, " 20th. Red Hill, " 25th. Edgelield, C. H. " 27th. W. II. TIM M ERN AN, Chair. A. E. PADGETT, Sec'y. Scratch the Flies Off. In his paper last week Dargan says? speaking of hi; public reception in' and departure from, Edgelield on "Wednesday : "One of them invited me to a personal tight with him and the balance cheered him." This man was County Supervisor Whittle and he on ly wanted to scratch him a little. "Scratch" evidently thought Dargan had Hies on him. Com, Corn, Corn. The corn crops in Edgefield County are good almost everywhere, anti we believe the acreage is almost double even that of last year. Mr. Absalom | Horne of the Ridge section told us on donday of this week that, "standingin rear of his house and looking down the creek there is absolutely nothing but corn to be seen on both sides, and that although last year there was a big crop made in Edgelield this year he believes she will double it," Memphis Culbreatl). A great many people in Edgefield County believe that Memphis Cul hreath iii not in thc land of the living A lette:- shown to us on Tuesday rf this week, written hy him from Mount Cus!!?'

A Missionary Meeting. Next Sunday evening iuthe Baptist church there will be a missionary ser- ( vice. We hope that all our people will come out to this meeting, for you will go away beuetitted and instructed. The program! te will be as follows : Music. Scripture reading.

I \ Friday morning of last week * the first session of the Baptist Sun- I day school convention of the Edge- ' field Association convened in the 1 Edgefield Baptist church. About I 50 delegates were, enrolled from the 1 various Sunday schools. 1 Parksville furnished the Pres- : ?dent, secretary, and wit of the convention, L. V. Dorn, II. W. Do bey, and J. C. Morgan. The first i morning and afternoon session was taken up with tiie discussion of queries selected by the committee on arrangement of programqj^. The first speech on this programme was made by A. S. Tompkins on "what are the qualifications nec esi-ary for otlicers of a Sunday school, and how ascertained." This query was treated, as Bro. ij lu lock said, "in a very exhaus tive manner," that is, he said "in reference <o points." A number of queries for discussion were handed in by brethren present, nearly all of which were the means of drawing from delegates soiid information, and interesting and instructive talks. Bro. Pinekney Blalock added a great deal to the music of the choir by his cornet, which he manipulates with much skill. Friday evening Rev. J. L. Ouzta preached on? of his inimitable sermons. The text was "And I. if I be lifted up will draw all men unto myself." Saturday was also spent, in the dis ussion of topics, which were helpful to Sunday-school workers. Among the speakers were Hon. W. J. Talbert, Rev. J. P. Mealing, Rev. J, L. Ouzts Rev. John Lake, Rev. L. R. Gwaltney,J. C. Morgan, etc. Rev. J. P. Mealing was appointed to deliver Lhe sermon, for Saturday evening, but on account of the weather, there was no service, much to the regret of that portion of our town who attended the convention, Sunday morning was the time appointed for the Sunday School Muss Meeting, after which services the regular morning sermon was preached by Rev. J. L. Ouzts. The I.ouse was crowded on this occasion and >h" people were much edified ami d 'lighted hythe unusually elo quent discourse which they heard. We hop?.1 that Edgofield will hear many more of Bro. Ouzts's sermons. WP feel assured that the delegates and visitors who attended ibis con vention will go home enthused and encouraged for another years hard work for the Sunday-schools aud for Chn-t. 1 Exhaust are made to produce large ? use of Fertilizers rich in Write for our "Farmers' Guide is brim full of useful information for will make and save you money. At GERMAN I CORRESPONDENCE Love Is Thc Theme. MR. EDITOR: Owing to the mo lolomy brought on by writers UB ng ali subjects o'er and o'er again, ! have concluded to tnmgressthe aws of custom aud try to write on he subject of love. Ntl doubt many will smile when he four rays of light emanating rom the letters of my word-sub ect fall gently upon the retinas of heir eyes and is transmitted in the 'orm of molecular motion over the >ptic nerve lo the brain centres, vhere, through the energizing of lerve cells, it is supposed to come n contact with the conscious Ego. Would that all men could laugh tow and then, and when ? sa}' all nen 1 do not mean man as in con rad ist i notion to woman, but both. Most men are so burdened with he cares of life, and so heartsick, it th? demolition of splendid "Air [Just 1 ..s" which their own fertile imaginations alone could erect that [bey scarcely ever lind time for a good hearty laugh. Their moments if genuine enjoyment on earth are few. As for me, 1 shall iiHver hes itate to do a (hing that will tend to produce smiles upon the human face rather than tears. I would feel that I bad lived a useful and noble life, if, when overtaken by gray hairs, i could glance back ward and in my mind's eye see multitudes laughing and enjoying a. few moments -even on this lug ged pathway-over something I bad written. So while Pedagogue the Great ind his accomplished opporent are discussing great subtle questions :>f state, 1 shall turn aside with those who wish to accompany me md talk of this grand old subject jf love. 1 don't remember Emer son's exact words, but m substance ?ie says that, a man who has grown 50 cold as to never be able '0 i rouse in some measure hid once iTOUthful feelings, those blessed lopes and experiences which*he mechad, has passed beyond all extraordinary terrestrial happi ness; and he might have added hat such a man has lost hie mem Dry since old age looks backwards ivhile youth looks forwards. Says Mr. Davis in his great. Psychology : 'Love is a complex feeling con sisting of three elements-desire, emotion, and sentiment." Then ie goes on and explains that "sen : i ment is the rational element in his noble feeling which subdued Antony and inspired Shakepeare." Washington Irving realized what :he word love meant when he said : 'My observations of human na ture have convinced me that how ever the surface of the character may be chilled and frozen by the :ares of the world or cultivated into mere smiles by the arts of SO ?ien-, still there are dorroant fires lurking.io the depths of the cold est bosom, which, when once en ; in died, become impetuous, and ire sometimes desolating in their ?fleets." They seemed to have their desolating effect upon Ir king himself for the young lady of lis choice died just before the time for the consummation of their be troth ment, and Irving wandered aver 1 he world a celibate the re mainder of his life. It is said that he visi:ed the shrine of her interment when he was an old man and completely broke down under a ilood of tears. In this age of machination, Ido not believe we ever have many cases of true love. Especially is this the case in states where di vorces can be secured. In this state where a man is expected to live with his wife all his life, and she with him, they seem tobe a little more particular, but even here the most of our love is policy love. If a young man wants to have a good time with the girls and get married easy, he must turn out to be a "Jim Dandv Dude." A young man who works on the farm with sunburnt hands is not in the liglic except when a war conies on. As a rule young women are poor judges of true manhood, and they often wake up to this truth after their destiny is fixed. They see only the surface when they should probe to the heart and find out the characteristics of a man. That love of which poets write and minstrels sing seems tobe a lost faculty, if ] may PO term it, in this age. Science seems tobe taking the place of poetry and co quetry the place of true ;ove. It is seldom that ont; ever hears a love song any more, but in its stead you hear the complicated medley which no one but a fine musician can enjoy. The art of human ingenuity may flourish for awhile, but if art conflicts with nature the art must give way, for the hand that formed the human personality can never be surpassed. Ves, the poet's song of love will live forever, because it is the out pouring of human passion. Sci ence may cause the mind to lose its original simplicity, but science can never efface from the human soul its power to Jove. This power to love is the soul's greatest pre rogative. The bliss of heaven con sists ?li the free exercise of this sentiment of the soul. Since I have been old enough lo know anything of this question, 1 have taken an interest in tho con yersatiens ol' those languishing in love. Ayouth in love must always have a confidential friend lo whom ed Soils ir and better crops by the Potash. ," a 142-page illustrated book. It farmers. It will be sent free, and ldress, LAL!

I have, a few times in my life, boen made the confident of those afflicted with that malady of the soul, and I find that no greater opportunity can he afforded to study human nature in all of its aspects. Finally, this word love may be abused and laughed at, but, if it held a more honorable place in the hearts of men and women, peace and happiness would linger about the firesides of our homes, children would be reared with moro religion and better morals, and this world would lie a better place in which io live. VAN STAR. Mine Creek, June 27. '95. CUTTING DOWN A BEE-TREE A Bloody Fight Result?. To (he Adnertitter : Mr. Willie Yarborough and John nie Coleman decided a few days ago that this community was too quiet, so thinking it necessary to revive it they had a bee tree, rob bing. Thev went down on the cre'rk and selected one of the lar gest trees that, could be found in the swamp, measuring3 feet in di ameter. Tiny then went around and invited all the neighbors both young and old, to assist them iii cutting the tree, and in getting some honey. Willie and Johnnie went up to Mr. John B. Duffie's and asked him to bring some bread, and when night came on, it was fun to see Mr. Duffie walk up with a piece of bakers bread under each arm and a bee bonnet on. For fear of not having enough bread Mr. Duffie brought a 25 lb. sack of Hour and plenty of cooking utensils, and to cap the climax he also brought a negro woman Lo do the cooking. As the tree wa* on Mr. H. For rest's place, he received a written invitation to bring agall?n bucket] to get som?i honey for his wife, but being a little greedy, he brought a five gallon can, with about 25 bis cuits and 2 lbs. of butter to eat the honey with. Mr. Rube McCarty, the great trader of this section, being late, had to run his mules very fast to get there in time. Considering the fact that Mr. McCarty was a shrewd trader John and Willie coaxed him to climb the tree-and stop the hole, by giving him a goct. While in the top of the tree, a limb broke and he fell to the ground a dis tance of 53 feet 6? inches. So you see what a goat can do for Rube. Rube also brought three dozen eggs to trade for honey. Mr. Andrew Coleman and Tom Havird brought a bee gum apiece to get the bees, as they both want ted them. They fell om about it nud it ended in a bloody fight. Tho father of Willie, Mr. Frank Yarborough, being very tired, fell asleep and a limb fell on him and injured him seriously. When the tree fell, nothing could be seen of Willie and John. They ran off shooting pistols and linging bells. These boys were pursued by the mob all night, but they were too glib on the heels to be caught. JOKERS. Dennys, S. C.
