WEDNESDAY, AUG. 19, 1896. L0GAL2 BREVITIES. ALVIN HART. When the announcement was made on last Tuesday by the attendiug phy sician that "Alvin Hart could not live twenty-four hours," many a prayer went up to the Throne of Grace that this might not be; and when on Wed nesday morning it became known that .the dread prediction was a reality, thai he bad passed away during the night, the news came upon our town as a calamity not to be estimated not to be measured or indicated by words alone. "Our foremost citizen has fallen;'1 "the most useful member in all this community;" "hewill be missed more than any other man would have been missed" was the universal acclaim. Duing life men are often judged by what they say, what they promise, and what they are expected to do. After death they are judged by t heir fellows by what they have done. Measured by thisstanlard our friend and brother stood pre-eminent among us. As a merchant and in his private business .he was cautious, economical, exact, and always conscientious, but in matters of public conc.ern he was bold, urgent, and vigilant not counting the cost to himself but pressing on right on to fruition. Tnis enthusiastic and con tinuous interest in works for the pub lic weal ls testified to in our very midst by those mute tut not inglori ous monuments, the Hotel Edgefield* The Edgefield Opera House, The Bank of Edgefield, and last and greatest, the Edgefield Baptist church. In this last, the Edgefield Baptist church, all Edge field will see day after day as the days go by a memorial of his patience, his business tact and talent, his liberality, his courage and his love for, and joy in, doing good works. In these mat ters be may have been ambitious to be ; first, to be foremost but if so, it never appeared, for when success bad been achieved in any of these or other en terprises he invariably left the emolu ments, if any, for others. He took noth ing for himself, the joy in the achieving :H>d the achievement, the GAUDAMEN J K RTA MINIS, seemed to be enough for H'm. li be was ambitious, it was au ambition commendable and to be imi tated, an ambition "to scatter plenty o'er a smiling land, and read his his tory in.a peoples' eyes." .And yet, Alvin Hart's best traits were not exhibiten in his public deeds nut in his private relations with kin dred and friends; to these he was ever tender, loving and helpful and they held ni in in their heart of hearts as its 1 rst and best treasure. That be was a christian we may know from an incident of his last ill ness, A few hours before bis death be called a friend to his bedside who bowed his head to -bear these last -words, almost inarticulate: "1 am perfectly calm and rational. I know that I m ust die, and Lam willing to go." Here is hope, here is assurance that be was ready to "cross the bar"-to make the voyage. - "Twilight, eveuing bell, After that the dark; And be no sad farewell When I embark For though beyoud our bourne of time ano place, The billows bear me far; 1 hope to meet my pilot face to face, When I have crossed the bar." We regret to iearn of the illness of Mrs. Judge Roath. Miss Ada Ballard, of Georgia, is visiting Miss Mary Lou Lanham Mr. Hart had eleven thousand dol?ais insurance on his life. Misses Helen and Henriette i Sheppard have returned from Union. The Edgefield Institute will open on Monday the 14th Septem ber prox. Mr. Mabry of Abbeville and his wife who was Miss Susie Bee, are visiting in town. Miss Carrie Sh&ppard is in Edge field again after a short visit to the Bold Spring country. Dr. Gwaltney is conducting a series of meetings in our Baptist church, commencing last Monday morning. Miss Sophie Abney and Dr. Glover Tompkins, who have been1 seriously ill for some weeks, are improving. A new upright piano, oak case, 1\ octaves, with 6tool cover and instruction book, for 3ale. Price $150. Apply nt this office. The Edgefield Association con venes with the Edgefield Baptist church on Wednesday after the i?rst Sunday in September. The firm of Alvin Hart & Co., will be coutinued by Jas. E. Hart, that of E. B. Hart & Co., by E,B. Hart, and Hart and May as hereto fore. The Edgefield Association con tributed to State Missions during the mouth o' July $79.32. The to tal, a.nount from the whole State is $3,938.44. ' The State" Executive Committee hos had printed two hundred thou sand tickets to be used in voting for State offices and candidates lor the United States Senate, Miss Ange] Cheatham, a recent graduate of Winthrop, has accept ed a position as typewriter and stenographer with a firm in Sum ter. Mrs. Joshua W. Han is of Scot land Ga , is on a visit to her broth er Mr. J. N. Schenk of onr suburbs. Mr. Schenkt mother from Kirk sey's is also on a visit to him. There wili be a meeting of the County Alliance at this place on Thursday of this week to devise means for circumventing the Cot-, ton tie trust, which trust has re cently increased the price of cot ton lies. Tnt first primary election will bo held next Tuesday. You must Have been a member of some demo cratic clu-b five days' before this date or you will not be entitled to vc te. There seems to be no doubt that cotton will bring a fair price this fa;l because cotton isn't making. The rains of last week do not ap pear to havo b?nefited the .crop, but rather to have scalded and and cooked the bolls. . Mr. John McHugh, after a pro tracted illness, died on Saturday last at the residence of his brother in-law, Mr. W. H. Turner. His sufferings during his last day w?re borne with patience and resig nation. His remaiis were interred in the Catholic cemetery on Sun day afternoon, Peace to his ashes! There won't be auy top crop on cotton in thi3 region and so far as we can gather, in the whole South. The fruit that was on the cotton on August 1st will probably stay there, but from that dato will be nudus membra. On last Tuesday as Mr. W. N. Burnett, one of our most promi nent citizens, as driving in his buggy to his plantation in Saluda County his hoise ran away throw ing him out breaking two of his ribs and otherwise bruising hi3 face and aims. He was car ried to the borne of Capt. W. S. Allen and there tenderly cared for until Friday when he was brought to Edgefield. We are glad to know that the injuries received w'iile they occasion much pain and dis comfort are not dangerous and that friend Burnett wiil soon be out again. Where to Vote. Our two Edgefield Demooratic clubs will vote in the court house, up stairs, using the two jury rooms for that purpose. Vote early aud vote right is all the country expects of its citizens. Genl. Tom Carwile. Capt.T. W. Carwile has just been notified that he had been elected Brigadier Genl. Commanding the 2nd Brigade of Confederate Vete rans in this State. This notifica tion came from Gen!. C. I. Walker commanding the S. C. Division Confederate Veterans. A Tribute to James Richardson Hill. My old friends, school matesi and kinsmen of old Edgefield are fast passing away. Dr. Clint Tomp kins, Capt. Wm. Stevens, James and Wash Allen are deud, and now JAS. R. HILL has.been called away, five, good and true men and dear friends of the writer. Oh how sad to thiuk I will meet them no more on my trips to dear old Edgefield. .If you want the best I have when I am absent tell my children you are from Edgefield. * JIM HILL, as he was familiarly called, is dead ; it is hard to 'real ize that iie is gone and oh how he will be missed by his neighbors, for he was ever ready with hand and purse to extend a favor to auy charitable object and he was a friend to every mau he thought honest and deserving friendship. JAMT?S RICHARDSON HILL was about 62 years old-died at his brothers, Dr. Walter Hill of Edge field C. H. His home was at old Gassawiy near Richardsouville where he was born and raised, and both places he loved and cherish ed, for a good part of his youth was spent at the latter plac? clerk ing for his uncle James Richard son. In his young days he was dis appointed iu a love affair and nev er after that thought of marriage. He was a member of the Methodist church t.t vjras8away. Such men as JAMES R. HILL are rare in this world and the inscription on his tomb should be. "Herc lies an honest man." He never did a mean act and when his mortal remains were committed to the dust we felt that we had lost earth's dearest treasure-a true and faithful friend. Farewell dear JIM-may the turf rest lightly on your breast and when the last trump shall sound the kn? ll of time may we meet again together with our loved ones around the throne of God. W. Ninety-Six, S. C., Aug. 17, '96. A CARD. To THE PUBLIC : We learn that Mr. J. E. Strom made a statement that he signed the announcement of Mr. L. I). White for the Legisla ture expecting him to withdraw his name; that he intends making some statement through this weeks issue of an Edgefield paper be ing the last week before tho elec tion. From the fact that Mr. Yel dell visited Mr. Strom on Saturday last we infer that there must be some combination to injure Mr. White and knowing the people of Edgefield love fair play and frown upon unfair methods we place be fore them the following certifi cates : Ido hereby certify that I pre sented Mr. White's announcement for tho legislature to Mr. Strom for hi;; signature. He at first decliued siguing, but when I started off, he without persuadion on ray part, called to me tn stop, saying "Mr. White is my i.^ighbor and a good man" and that li?; would sigu it and vote for him. W. P. Winn. I hereby certify that I was pres o t and heard the conversation be tween Mr. Winn and Mr. Strom and that Mr. Winn's statement as above made is correct and true. W. N. SEIGLER.

EDITOR ADVERTISER: My nairn appears together with others h your poper announcing the name of Mr. L. D. White as a candidate for th?? legislature, and as it is be ing used for purposes contrary tc what I was Jed to expect, that is, to show 'bat Mr. White's election is desired by th-i reformers of thie community with a view to accom plish the defeat of the Hon. Wm. H. Yelldell. I deny this and deem it my duty to Mr. Yeldell and to myself, and for the information of the voters of the county, to explain how my name became attached to tho announcement. Two of my neighbors came to my house and asked me to sign it, which I refug ed to do, stating that I could not vote for Mr. White, and therefore could not ask to run for the office by signing his petition or announce ment. They then said to me that "Mr. White" did not intend to make the race now, and only desired to be announced in this way with the hope that it wouid help bim in his race two years from now, and that he would come out in a ?ajd de clining to run" and that, "if I would sigu it with that under standing, one of the party said that he would allow me to write his entire ticket in the coming pri mary," which proposition I accept ted and signed it. I dislike to ap pear in print, but a sense of duty requires me t > make these state ments of facts in order that justice may be done. J. E. STROM. WHO IS SHE? Every afternoon there is seen in Edgefield, astride a handsome bicycle a smiling, winsome, vivacious, blue eyed girl who is the cynosure of all eyes. She looks the pink of perfection in her pink shirt-waist, brown bloom ers and sailor hat. She is one of the main attractions at Penn's Mammoth Thousand Dollar Soda Fountain where sverybody goes to refresh themselves this hot weather. She advertises, Almoldol, for the skin; Cold Cream, for the face and hands; Witch Hazel Soap, for bathing; Frog in Your Throat, for coughs and colds; Eye Wash, for sore eyes; Glycerine Jelly for sunburn ; and Phenol Sodique, for ^utsand bruise's. Penn will let you have any of these remedies for only len cents. Think of it ! They are the best in the world. MANAGERS OF PRIMARY ELECTION.
