T1!US. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR ? WEDNESDAY, NOV. 25, 189G. PROCEEDINGS OF COURT. I The Court of General Sessions was adjourned on Monday of this week. The following are the ac quittals, convierions and sentences, at least the most important. Robert Rabon charged with house breaking and larceny was sentenced to the penitentiary for twelve months, John Honry Rich ardson, murder, not guilty; Fiank Cain, assault and battery with in tone to kill wae found guilty and sentencsd to thc county chain gang; Henry Sheppard larceny from Ihe field, was found guilty, county chain gang six mouthe or penitentiary at his option ; the two cases for violating the dispensary law against William Alexander and "W. W. Hall were not pressed. Sam Oliver, charged with beat ing his daughter so that she died jn consequence, was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced for ten years at hard labor ; Will Abney and Ed. Nix, one j ear on chain gang or penitentiary for samo period; Gus Butler six months on chain gang or same time in peni tentiary or $200 fine. The most interesting case prob ably that has occupied the atten tion of the court at this session was that of Pickens Settles colored, charged with killing Charles Sprowles, his son in law. Settles is au old cripple, foreman on a plantation of Capt. Scott Allen of Fruit Hill. He was shot in the bowels by Sprowles, and it was supposed was killed, but after a few moments of unconsciousness, according to the testimony of wit nesses, arose to his ktiees and "said his prayers," but while saying Amen reached for his gun took de liberate aim at his^fleeing adversa ry and put sixty-four shot in his body * producing almost instant death. In this case Solicitor-elect Thurmond and M. P. Wells Esq., appeared for the defence and So licitor Nelson for the State. The case was fought vigorously on both sides. Mr. Thurmond especially surprised his friends at the extent of his knowledge of medical juris prudence. These two legal com batants bad it so hot and heavy that one old darkey was heard to remark that, ''Mr. Nelson rared and bucked and kicked like a Texis but Mr. Thurmond staid wid 'im and rid 'im.*' The result was an acquittai for Settles and great *-Tejccing OD the part of his colored and white friends of which he seemed to have a goodly share. The Common Pleas is now in ses fcion and will last during this week, probably longer. Georgia's Senator. Alexander Stephens Clay has been chosen United States Senator to succeed Gen. John B. Gordon on the 4th of March next. He de feated Gov. Atkinson, E. P. Howell and others in the Democratic cau ^cuiT~ He is the chairman of the State executive committee. - Latham Alexander & Co., cot ton experts of New York estimate the cotton crop of 1896 at 8,022,000 bales. An Australian scientist informs us that there is about $65.000,000 worth of geld in solution in a cu bic mile of sea water. South Carolina electoral vote not verified. Democratic ticket 58,801, Palmer 634, Old Line Re publicans 4,415, New Republicans 5,525. - W.J.Bryan took last week for -recreation, duck hunting on the St. Francis River in South Mis souri, in cempany with Gov. Stone of that State and Senator Jones of Arkansas. A trial of horseless carriages took place in England a few days ago. There were fifty vehicles of 'different mikes entered, but an American device, which covered a distance of forty-seven miles in four hours, won tho race. Some of the folks in Columbia Ogives to D. H. Tompkins all the credit for defeating John Gary [Evans for tae United States Sen at3 are industriously grooming him to clean up Ben Tillman at the ex piration of his present term. . The Comptroller General hr8 Completed the tabulation of the re. ';urns of the taxable property of ?foo State showing a total valua ;ion of real estate of $100,895,306. .n increase of about $700,000 over if pr./vious year. The total value personal property is $45,500,000 iucroase of somewhat over $170, [). The value of railroad prop iy is 823,902,712, and the total ible property of all kinda in State is $170,298,018. j The latest revision of tho elec tion returns gives McKinley 272 and Bryan 175 electoral votes. In 1888 the vote stood Cleveland 168, Harrison 233; iu 1892 Cleveland 277, Harrison 145, Weaver 22. In tho present House of Repre sentatives the Republican majori ty is 135. In the next it will be 55. Considering all the odds the Democratic party made a noble fight and wi i be in great evideue? in the future. It has been definitely arranged that William J.. Bryan is to take the lecture platform and his first address will b>j delivered at Atlan ta, Ga., early in December. His route as far as it has been arrang ed will be after leaviug Atlanta, Jacksonville, Savannah, Charles ton, Augusta, Birmingham and New Orleans. After leaving the latter city, Mr. Bryau; will go through Texas, then on to Califor nia and Oregon, and will not reach the cities of the East before the latter par*t of February, 1897, Se in i. hr onie us Heard From. I have for some time been in tending to write for tho dear old ADVERTISER but have been kept from so doing by other duties. Most of her correspondents seem to have forgotten her, but "Sera" I will ever cherish her in fondest memory. Pedagogue, after having bodily eaten up Sem, P. J., Van Star, and goodness knows who all else, jumps on the Monitor does it up according to his (Pedagogues) notion; and now he shakes his bloody lance, reeking with the gore of the vanquished and defies the whole ^ aman race and the in habitants of Mars to boot! ! He is at present engaged in teaching at Hickory Grove. He is by all odds one of the beet posted country school teachers in the State. I reckon you noticed the slight tiffs the Advocate and Sentinel have been having. "We regret ex ceedingly anything of this kind, as we esteem them both very high ly. Well Bryan was beaten. "We were truly sorry to hear this, but hope and pray that four years may work a neversal ol sentiment in the middle western states and send them bounding into the Bryan rauks. Our grief is alloyed with joy however that the mest pitiful exhibition of pure "cussedness" ever exhibited on the American continent-Palmer and Buckner's race-was stamped so hard by tho American voters that it "busted" into a thousand fragments. These men met a merited suowuuder. The Carolina News says of them : Cleveland's bastard candidates Palmer and Buckner, did'nt cut much of a figure in the South where Democracy is real and true." Thank God if Bryan did'nt car ry the votes, he carried the territo ry. The number of square miles that,Bryan carried would swallow the number that McKinley carried and have many to spare. It shows that the great expanse of eastern and western territory that will oue day be the controlling power in the United States is not yet divorced from right and truth. The far mers and miners who represent the great industries of our country are not yet ready to own the shackles of a cruel despot. The besotted, ignoiant, purchasable non-Ameri can vote by whose agency Bryan was defeated, are mere cattle when compared to the brave yourmany by whose valor our liberty was achieved and by whose bravery it has been maintained. Can such varlets keep down a virtuous free born commonalty? Never ! SEMPIIRONICUS. Hheumatism Cured. Mr. W\ E. Shepherd, of the dry goods house of Davison, Lowe cfc Shepherd, Athens, Ga., says of Boyal Germetuer : "For four long months I was fiat on my back, unable to move a sin gle limb of my body without as sistance. Nothing gave me relief. I had given up all hopes of recov ery until the great remedy, King's Royal Germeteur was given me. The first week I began to improve, and in less than thirty days was on my feet attending to my duties. I am now able to work twelve hours out of every twenty-four, and sell as many dry goods as any mau in Georgia. OBITUARY. It has pleased the Lord to call home our beloved brother MI CHAEL HORN. He was one of the best members of Mt. Lebanon Baptist church. He was born in Edgefield counly S. C., and died at his home Nov.9tb, 1896. That his soul is resting sweetly with Christ no ono has a doubt. All who knew Bro. HORN only knew him to love him. His affectionate wife and four little children, his brethern and sisters of Mt.

We sell old Hickory Wagons the whole year round because they are fully worth what wa ask for them every day in the year. It is just as safe to put money into an old Hickory Wagon a3 in a bank. The wagons won't run off, and will be worth all you paid for them ev ery day in the year. The Practical Question.. For hard times and all times is not, where are the goods made, or who makes them, for ten or twenty years ago somo names and places stood higher than now, and new names have become significant. The enterprising business mau wanta lo know where to get the best goods for the least money. That's the test question. Old Hickory Wagons are the recogniz ed btandard. Compare our prices with any others ; we except none, quality considered. We will be satisfied with the result of tho test. "Cheaper." It is frequently said of of her makes of wagons that they are "cheaper" than the Old Hickory, old Hickory is the standard, and there can only be* one "Old Hicko ry." But are the others cheaper? Don't take the word of anyone for it. Come and examine them your self. Other makes to be cheaper must be "just as good." Are they? Price is something, but quality is more. Now, it's easy to decide are ihey cheaper?
