WEDNESDAY, JAN. 20, 1897. MR. '1. G. LANHAM. On Friday morning last Mr. T. G. Lanham, one of Edgefleld's most re spected citizens, departed this life, to be no more among the friends and kindred here, but with those other friends and loved ones who are dwell ing :n another land, the one beyond, where there is "no more pain, neither sorrow nor sighing." Mr. Lanham was formerly a resident of the "An tioch section, and was a member of the Antioch church, but for some years has been living in our town, and at the time of his death belonged to the Edgefield Baptist church. For many months he bad suffered as au invalid? but it was not expected that he would be so soon taken away. Yet so it seem ed to be the will of the Almighty and tender Sovereign, and all things in His hands are direeted wisely and "work together for the good of those who love him." He leaves behind those who will ever keep his memory in sa cred trust, his wife, and a son, T. B. Lanham, and two daughters, Misses Mary Lou and Minnie Lanham. Their many friends do not forget their afflic tion and feel for them-a tender and earnest sympathy. May their faith in .the wisdom of their omnipotent guide give them peace and patience. JAMES F. GRIFFIN. James F. Griffin, who died at his home near our town on last Wednes day, was the last male member of the Griffin family in Edgefield county, a family that stood in the forefront in the days that are gone, first in good words and noble deeds. The deceased was the only son of the la^ Stanmore B. Griffin, Esq., and the grandson of Col. Nathan L. Griffin of sainted mem ory. Everybody liked Jim Griffin and if he had an enemy in the world it was himself. His life was a Hfltful fever," after it may he sleep well, and awake in a habitation-a glorious home, where unalloyed happiness shall be his forever and forever. EDWARD PENN PAUL. Mr. E. P. Paul, who died at his home in the Antioch section a few days since, was a son of the late Abner Paul of our town, was about thirty-three years of age at the time of his death, and leaves a wife and one child and several sisters and brothers who will ?orely miss his genial smile and pres ence. For the last six or eight years Mr. Paul had been living in Augusta, but failing health caused him to re move to his home in the country, where he died as above stated. He was buried at Antioch church. Peace to his memory ! LOGAla BREVITIES.

God will forgive your sins, but he expects you to pay your debts. Some men never learn the difference between education and conceit. Mr. W. A.

What a language we have? A man "sits down" during tho day time, but "sits up" at night. Mr. D. R. Durisoe, who has been con fined to his room for several days with the grip, is better. Col. Jim Tillman has removed his law office across the street in the Nor ris building, upstairs. Miss Lou Aycock has gone to Co lumbia to take a position as engross ing clerk in the legislature. Rev. T.

He was an experienced journalist and a good man. Mr. A. V. Morgan has carried his chain gang to work on the public roads in the Seigler section, and Seigler is his postoffice. Dr. Gwaltney was ill in bed on last Sunday morning, and as a conse quence there was no service in our Baptist church. We heard a man say th-'other day tfiat so many people are dying in Edgefield here lately, that he had a no tion of moving off. - ?

You] can plant English pease arni onions now, if you want to, and if there are none of us here to eat then: when they get ripe, they'll bea bless ing to the cotton factory folks. Speaking of the grip reminds us ol the Irishman's description. He spoke of it as "a disease that keeps you sid three weeks after you get well." This is also Jake Haltiwanger's opinion.

There will soon be great rearing and pitching on the part of those entitled to Confederate pensions. We believe no board of pensions has been ap pointed for Edgefield county for the year 1S97.

Place, Edgefield; time, midnight The girl had yawned behind her hand kerchief until it actually had a nap on it. Still he stayed, still he talked. The girl's evident weariness appealed tc him. "Bless ray soul!" be exclaimed "what time is it?" "Time," she re plied, "it must be eternity." Having heard tha t a sleeping coact was to be put on our railroad bet weer here and Trenton, we interviewed Agent Ilaltiwanger on the subject. He says for the present the sleeper wil not be put on, in fact not until th< road commences running all-nigh trains between Edgefield and Trenton Everybody is talking now abou curing hams, and many and varied are the recipes given, all said to be infalli ble. The following is good enough; Allow your hams to lie in salt four to six weeks according to size; takeout of the brine and dry in the air a day or two; rub each ham thor oughly with ground black pepper am sorghum, w rap In paper (and enclose in cloth sacks if liked) and hang in i cool, dark place. Spot on the Sun. Have you seen the big spot on the sun? Here's the latest in regard t( the phenomenon: "A peculiar hazi ness of the atmosphere in St. Lou ii last Friday made it possible for ob' servers to see the new and big spoi on the sun with the naked eye. Prof H. S. Pritchett, of Washington Uni< versify, measured the spot, and said il was 27,040 miles long and 9,.r>00 mile? wide. The next largest one ls 9,10( miles long and 4,070 miles wide, and there is quite a flock of others, from 500 to 1,000 miles in diameter, strung along like a sort of tail to the big one The entire disturbed area is about 08, 0i>0 miles long and 40,000 miles wide, The main spot, it will be noted, would cover just three worlds the size of ours.'' Here at Edgefield we can see this spot through a smoked glass. Notice to Taxpayers. Intendant W. W. Adams re quests us to publish .he following: Tho taxpayers of the town of Edge field are requested to meet in the court house cf said town on Thurs day afternoon next, Jan 21st, at 4 o'clock. Business of great im portance will be discussed at this meeting, and every taxpayer is urged to be present. School Funds. School Commissioner Nicholson requests us to say that the delay in making and publishing the school fund apportionment for Edgefield county is due to the fact that he has not as yet been able to get the data for euch apportion ment from the various sources, but that it will be given as soon as he can get the necessary information, perhaps next week. To Plant Tobacco. Mr. Abe Broadwater has just se cured ihe fine tobacco seed he has been hunting so long. They are imported.from Cuba, and have to be soaked in honey, maple syrup and Jersey cream before they will germiuat-\ Mr. Broadwater wil. plant forty acres this}'ear, and all this he has done just to keep Sam Taylor from going to the Cub'* war, so Sam says. New Firms. The firm of Ramsay & Bland, hitherto doing business at Edge field and Johnston, has been dis solved by mutual consent. The bu8ii ess will be continued at Edgefield by W. W. Ramsey and B. B. Jones, under the firm name of Ramsey & Jones j at Johnston Mr. Avory Bland will own and operate thc Johnston business un der his own name. A Guano Problem,. ^-B. has three tons of fertilizers. One contains 8 psr cent of ammonia; an other '2 per cent of potash ; another 12 per cent of acid. Ile wishes to mix from these three tons a ton to contain 2 per cent of ammonia, 3 percent of potash andS percent of acid. How many pounds must he take from each of the three tons to make the desired formula? Guano agents and school teachers are invited to workout this problem for the sake of a sorely dis tressed farmer. Accident at McCormick. Mr. G E Cade, living near Mc Cormick in Abbeville county, was accidently killed on Saturday night last. He was found dead and it is supposed bis horse ran away with the buggy, threw him out and killed him. But as he !wa8a wealthy man and had con stantly money on his person, some think he was killed and robbed. He was caught between the shafts and wheels and dragged several hundred yards. When found life was extinct. Cut This Out. The Scientific American # gives this receiptjWhich the whole' world ought io know: ''At the first in dication of diphthetia in the throat of a child make the room close, ther. take a tin cup ahd pour inio it a quantity of tar and tur pentine, equal parts. Then hold the cup over a fire, so as to fill the room with fumes. The little patient on inhaling the fumes will cough up and spit out all the membraneous matter, and the diphtheria will pass off. Tho fumes of the tar and turpentine losen the matter in the throat and thus afford the relief that has baffled the skill of physicians," Eclipses of the Sun. During tho present year there will be two eclipses of the sun visible in the Southern and Eastern States. The first of these solar phenom enon will occur on the first day of February next, lc wi:i be what is known as a ring or annular eclipse, which means that the moon will pass across the sun's disk in . uch a way as to leave only a rim of light visible. It will lost for only a short time, however, and the sun's occupation will not be very seriously menac ed. The second eclip.-< which will be of the samo natur ;s slated for July 29th. It will I visible in North and South . 'rica, and also on the Atlantic oi .Instead of lasting for only a f minut?e, however, like its pred essor, it will last for somethiiib like two and a half hours. Must be Os. A few years ago Mr. Henry Cheatbam, of Edgefield county, attracted by the advantages afford ed by a residence in Richmond county, moved here and bought the property known as the Perrin place, about two miles from Au gusta. He has since then nevei had occasion to regret his step, foi his removal was a well-timed one, He now has a Jersey herd unsur passed by any of this section, a farm cultivated to the highesl yield, and is enjoying good health, having had no sickness since his removal. There are three causee for this very happy state of affaire with this very clever gentleman The first is his energy, the second the unsurpassed climate which permits him to enjoy good health aud thirdly, the unsurpassed ad vantages of the section in which he so fortunately chanced a resi deuce.-Augusta Herald.
