Don't crowd too much corn all at once into the hogs you put up for fat tening. Use them gradually to the solid food after you have taken them from the pasture. Maj.

On these potatoes, with peas and a lit tle meal cooked together, he is fatten ing his hogs, and pronounces it the best combination for that purpose. Gen!. Butler made at his sorghum ranch this season eleven hundred and fifteen galions three quarts and one pint of syrup. This puts him on the ground floor along with the Wheeler boys-especially as bis mill and whole outfit only cost bim thirty-five dol lars.

The many friends of Mr. Owen Car penter will ?regret to learn of his deatb which occurred on Tuesday night, af ter a sudden, and very short illness. His fanerai services were conducted at Phillipp! church on Wednesday and his remains interred in the adjoining | cemetery.-Aiken Recorder. Cheap liquor increases drunkenness, as evidenced on saleday in this month and th? first week of court. It was a grievous mistake in the State Board of Control, in more respects than one, to have reduced thc price of liquors to ten cents a half pint. Just think of the abomination of being able to get drank on a dime! I There is nothing thatcau. es women i greater discomfort and misery than the constantly recurriug Headache. Men suffer less with Headache. "My wife's health was very indifferent, having Headache continually, and ; ?ist two packages of Simmons Liver Regulator released her from all Head adie and gave tone and vigor to her whole system. I have never regret ted n's use."-M. B. UeBord. Mt. Ver nou, Ky. Dr. Gwaltney's sermon last Sunday on giviiur was not all a sermon but it was a very practical presentation ol thc necessity for a systematic as well as cheerful giving of one's substance to the Lord. / Give as you would if angels waited at your door; Give as you would if the morrow found you where giving all is o'er; Give as you would to the Master if you met his searching look ; Give as yon would of your substance if his hand your offering took. The editor of the Southern Chris tian Advocate in irs last issue has the following pleasant words to say of Parksville and its people, distinguish ed and otherwise: "The town lof Parksville is about 33 miles from .Au gusta, bas about 250 inhabitants, fqpr or live stores, including, all sizes, a Baptist and a Methodist Church for whites and a Baptist Church for color ed people. It has a good school, well attended, lt is the home of the Hon. W. J. Talbert, M. C., who is a consis tent member of the Baptist Church. The citizens of the place are peaceable and energetic, and a distinctly religi ous sentiment prevails. Some large plantations near by make its surround ing country a sparsely settled region. Nine miles below Parksville is Clark's Hill, the home of ex-Congressman Geo. D. Tillman. His dwelling, a com modious cottage-plan building, evi dently constructed more for solid comfort than outward show, is only about 150 yards from the station. The territory served by Brother Wilkes bas the fortune of producing men dis tinguished in affairs of State.' When you ask a man to subscribe for your paper, and he says: "Oh, I never read much, and, beside:), times are too plagued tight,' apologize to him for making the mistake and leave him. Life is too short to waste time trying to teach a jackass to sing soprano. All gentlemen, nowadays, reads newspapers and lots of them. Show us a man who lives for years in a town or county and never subscribes for the papers published there, and we will show you a man whose head is shaped like a piece of pie with the point up, and whose ignorance is only exceeded by his gall. 1 country news paper is an institution that works day and night for every decent man in the community. Therefore every decent man in the community is in honor bound to assist in its support.-Ex. More Syrup Figures. J. Foster Cbeatham, who owns the old Barr place near our town, ptauted this year one acre in orange cane From % of an acre he made 75 gallons; from the other after feeding largely of the stalks, he made 80 gallons next. Gin House Burned. On Saturday last the gin house of Mrs. J.C Swearingen burned with two hales of cotton therein belonging to Mr. McClendou. There was no insu rance* Cause of fire; a match in the cotton, ignited by the gin coming in contact with the gin saws. For the Methodist Orphanage. There will be an entertainment at Harmony, in the school house, on Fri day night of this week for the bene fit of the Methodist Orphanage soon to be established in Columbia. The doors will be open at 7 o'clock p. m., and a small admission fee will be charged. There will also be refreshments. It is hoped that there will be a large at tendance on the occasion as the object is a most worthy one. Effective Work. Since Mr. A. V. Morgan has taken charge of the county chain gang, work on the public roads has improved won derfully, and already within a few weeks or ten days the road between Edgetield and the Bates place, three and a half miles from town, is almost like a Boman highway. And the Bates bil), the bate noir of all trouble, is as smooth and delightful riding on as an Exposition "switch back," almost, if not altogether. Painful Accident. . On last Saturday while our popular fellow-townsman. Mr. Epps Norris, was at the depot looking after his freight, a bale of cotton that was be ing unloaded from a wagon accident ally fell on him fracturing his collar , bone and inflicting other painful in juries. His many friends regret the unfortunate accident, but rejoice that it was not more serious. Mr. Norris ? is resting comfortably, we understand, i and hopes soon to be out again. The Thoruwell Orphanage. 1 This Institution is a family-school for orphan children, who are left in ? poverty by the death of their parents. It is located in Clinton, South Caroli na, in the upper or piedmont section of the state. The healthfulness of the , same is shown by the fact that in twen ty years, there have been only three deaths among the orphans. The chil* dren are received from any section of the Union and from any denomina tion. There were 130 orphans ander its ca.e last year from twelve differ ent states and ten denominations. It is however, under Presbyterian son trol. Orphans aje not legally surren dered to the Institution, but are ad mitted to be educated, and sent out prepared to take care of themse ves. They are, therefore, taught to use both head and hand, the industrial coarse being full and thorough and the school-work, being equally satisfacto ry. The support of this Institution is wholly voluntary. It is almost with out endowment, depending upon the good will of the people for its main tainance. Gifts of provisions, cloth ing and money, in response to notices like this constitute its source of in come. Docing the past year, the fami ly was maintained and all salaries paid. And that bas been its wonder ful experience for twenty years. Thanksgiving and Christmas days are here. Surely this is a good time to remember the orphans. Gifts should be sent to JRev. Wm. P. Jacobs, Thorn well Orphanage, Clinton, 8.C. How to Cure Meat. '? lie Piedmont Headlight says: Dr. Irby, o? Laurens, cures the finest hams we ever tastrd, and they have a state wide reputation. They are cured after the old aute-belktm Virginia fashior. The Doctor says to save meat you mu. t use coarse Liverpool salt, for the American salt won't answer if the weather turns warm. Dr. Irby trims his hams and joints close, when they are thoroughly salted. About March be covers each ham with a thin coat ing of molasses, and then sprinkles black pepper over them. When smok ed, the molasses and pepper seem to enter the meat, and impart a delicious flavor. Besides, they exclude all in sects. Do not cover the skin, but only the portions of the ham that have been cut. If you try this recipe, you will find the sweetest and nicest hams you ever tasted. Dr. Irby says if yon will follow his directions, and use coarse liverpool salt, you will never lose your meat, unless the weather turns off warm and rainy after killing. To the Methodists Particularly, and Friends Generally. Under the direction of the P. & H. M. Society, there will be ser vice in our Methodsist church at ll o'clock on the day set apart for Thanksgiving. This service is to be in the inte.est of our village church for the purpose of decreas ing the church debt. We cordially invite tho co-oper ation of the Methodists of neigh borhood churches. Surely no heart, old or young, can withhold a pen uy, if no mbre, as the expression of gratitude to God for His lov ing kindness. Brother Stackhouse will preach for us. "Enter His gates with thanks giving and into His courts with praise." MKS. J. M. COBB, Pres. P. & H. M. Society. From Antioch. } MR. EDITOR: The farmers of Ibis section have about finished gathering their cotton and othei crops?aiid are now dpvo'ing their lime to sowing oats. Very few Dat s will be sown, however, last winter and the ono before having discouraged them. I am glad to say that by close economy this year the farmers are iu better shape to begin a new crop than they have been for a number of pears. A majority have plenty of corn and meat. One more good crop and a fair price for our pro duce and we will recover from tho los8of last year. Some three weeks ago Antioch church church extended a unani mous call tc J the Rev. Henry S. ri artzog, Principal of the Johnston i institute. We can't say with any legree of certainty that he will ac cept, but from information re ceived, we believe he will do so. Prof. Hartzog will preach at An tioch on Sunday next at ll o'clock. Let every body who can come out to hear him. We regret that Rev. John Lake cannot serve Antich next year, but (laving located at Batesburg, the distance is too great to serve again ind do the church ^justice.
