Ou the fourth Saturday in this month the various camps of Confederate "Veterans in Edgefield county will erect and dedicate at Chestnut Hill Church a monument to the memory of Mrs. Lucinda Horne. The day will be made a memorable one and we hope some kind friend will send us an ac count of the day's proceedings for pub lication. The Edgefield Institute is without a principal. There never wa?a better opening for the building up of a high school or coll?ge than is now offered in our town. An aspiring young man of capacity and up-to-date in educa tional matters., could make a wonder ful success1 here in Edgefield. In days that are passed this was au educational centre patronised from all parts of the country. Why not again? Mr. Robert ll. Mi ms, of our town, in former days a noted horticulturistand who still takes great interest in such matters, has shown us a peach, of his own raising-a seedling of the famous "Chinese ^ling"-which comes earlier oy two or three weeks than that va riety and is wonderfully sweet, juicy and well flavored. Mr. Minis has sent specimens to Mr. P. J. Berckman of Augusta, au? to Mr. A. Horne, of the Kidge Spring Nurseries. Capt. N\ G. Evans is a farmer right, and is hard to down when the cotton question U being agitated.

For. the last several days we have been blessed with seasonable showers, and the crops generally are about as good as heart could wish. In some sections ol* the county though, we re gret to learn, there has been little or no rain in from two to four weeks, and consequently there the crops have suffered materially. Be patient, suf fering bret hers, and be hopeful-ever remembering that the Good Lord sends the'good rains alike on the un just as well as on the just. Yes, hope or., hope ever-and later on you too will receive the "latter ram" in aban dance. Hussar Picnic, July 29th.

Edgefield's Cotton Factory. .- We are happy in the belief that our Cotton Mill will be in the full tide Qf operation in the early fall, by cation picking time. Mr. D. A. Tompkins, of CLarlotte, N. C., a large holder of the stock of this mill, was in town several days of last week, and was much pleased, we understand, with the early prospect of "starling up," and moreover predicts a prosperous business in fall and winter from all indications. In this respect he agrees with Bradstreet, and Dun the great financial and in dustrial figures and predicture. So mote it be. Doing his Duty. There is one constable in South Carolina, who does his duty and that one is Trib Davis. Wo clip from the Columbia Record; '?Mr, A. T. Davis State consta ble with headquarters at Glen ville, is in the city to meet thc board of control, for the purpose of lodging a number of complaintf against the Babbe Distillery with a view of cruphing them out of ex istence as being one of the mos flagrant nuisances ever knovn ii that locality.

Children locts. A Sure Pop. The first grown cotton boll in this community comes from a stalk in the field of James Griffin, col ored, who is one of Col. Folk's nu merous tenants. There will be two boll8on this stalk in all, when fully matured. There would have been morebut the miserable bumble bees8 uckedtho pollen from all the blooms except two. The methods ol the bumble bee are peculiar. He lies on his back underneath the cotton plant, sticks his feet and logs up to the bloom, pulls it down to his mouth and sucks until he has got if all. The only sure pre vents e of such destruction is, to dig a hole under tho cotton plant, so that when the bee gets over on his back ready for operations he will find his legs too shovt to reach the coveted bloom. We bave uever seen this method recommended in the Cultivator or the American Agriculturist, or any o;hor agri cultural paper, but it ;s a ''sure pop'' all the same. Hold Up Their Hands. Our local board of health, con sisting of Messrs. W. L. Duno vant, Jas. M. Cobb, John Ken ne r ly, Dr. Prescott DeVore, and Dr. Manly Timmons, are making com mendable efforts ?ii the matters of which they hnve especial charge. They have sent out notices to va rious partios to have their prem ises cleaned up as a cautionary measure-and preventive of sick ness. No one who has his own welfare or that of his neighbor at heart can take umbrage at this. Last year and year before there was a good deal of fever iu Edge field, and th-Te are indication? that we may have lo pass through the "deep waters" again this year, ?'uch being the case our board of health deserves to be encouraged and commended. We hope they will not stop simply by ti notifica tion to l,clean up" but will see to it that their instructions are car ried oui. An ounce of preventive is worth a carload of nasty medi cine. Catch the Shadow. We call the especial attention of our readers to the advertise ment of Miss Eliza M. Minis in this issue of the ADVERTISER. Miss M i ms has just returned from New York where, at the celebra ted "Art'League" of that city, she perfected herself in'her profession, ilfea^Lj^Palt- pa itifcjftgpfa^?f ' and oil, in its various branches. Her references, from the bighte?t, sources, speak in splendid terms of her skill, accuracy, delicacy of touch, and wonderful portrayal on canvass of the human form and features divine. But her work speaks for itself ; and this work can be found in many homes iu Edgefield and adjoining counties. To many it is a sweet though melancholy pleasure to gaze on the features of deparled loved ones, and to many such Miss Mims has proved a blessing and a be nison. Last, but not least, her prices are so very reasonable as to suit all purses. The Church at Ked Hill. Our work here at Red Hill is moving along nicely. We have organized a ladies', mission socie ty since Cnristmas. They have about fifteen members. They have already made some contributions to our mission boards. We have also organized a weekly prayer meeting; some of our younger members are taking an active part in this work. We hop9 soon to organize a Young People's Union. Our Sunday school has been well attended and is doing a grand work. On last Saturday our school observed Children's Day. The morning was taken up in recita tions and songs, after which Dr. Vaes of the Orphanage made a talk to the children and took a collection f >r the Orphanage amounting to $11.20. In the af ternoon the school WE.B addressed by Congressman W. J. Talbert, of ParksvilJe, Dr. Vass, of Green wood, Prof. McGee and the Rev. Henry Hartzog of Johnston. It was a pleasant and profitable day and enjoyed by all.-W. A. Hart, in Baptist Courier. Capt. Stanmore B. Ryan Takes a Hand at the Bellows. MR. EDITOR: AS you well know I am no newspaper scribler, but there are times whe-n every mau possessing thc least scintilla of patriotism or any regard for the public weal, should condemn in some way, with no uncertain sound, such infamous and un pardonable and unrighteous swing ing on to office as manifested by Messrs. Gaines and Yeldell of Greenwood county. I did'nt vote for Yeldell, and am gle.d I didn't. But it matters not now, Mr. Edi tor, to him personally, if he re signs his Edgefield office, or still re fuse to do so, he's a "dead cock in the pit," all the same- and ie read) for interment. And so I will simply append his epitaph, and pass on. "Tread softly round this sacred heap It guards ambition's restless sleep, Whose greed for place ne'er did for sake him, Don't mention oilice, or you'll awake him." Ytrbum sat. But I did expect Mr. Editor, a better and brightei record for Milton Gaines-alwayi a gentleman, upright and marly who knows that he has no right to live in Greenwood county and at the same time hold an Edgefield office, and confesses that fo do so does "not at all accord with my own ideas of propriety." And yet this mau has probably suffer ed himself influenced by certain interested parties, and he too has fallen from his high and honored estate. And down went McGinty" To the bottom of the sea." And so have you, Milton, with an Edgefield office folded away in your breast-pocket. The avaricious Pretender and Usurper! Ah, Mil ton, I am sorry for you-and sor ry that Edcefield's fair fame has been shadowed and tarnished aud one of the brightest jewels of a brave and proud people-Home Rule -has been stamped in the ground by yourself and your brother usurper, W. H. Yeldell. I am in favor of a mass meeting of the people of Edgefield, to con demn and denounce your acts. S. B. RYAN. Horn's Greek, July 5,1897. Camp M. C. Butler Passes Some I my o rt ant Resolutions. MR. EDITOK: At a meeting of Camp M. C. Butler the following enclosed resolutions were unani mously passed.

MESSAGE FROM THE DEAD. TJ?e""*PassToT*-^^ B. Dorn at Greenwood.-She Wrote Pathetic Letters Found After her Death. The death of Mrs. R. B. Dorn at Greenwood last week was a peculiarly sad oue. She had gone to Greenwood on a visit to her sister, Mrs. Bracknell, about a week before, to spend several days, She had been .in bad health for some time and it was hoped that the change would benefit her. She grew worst- soon after her arrival there and died about a week after. She leaves a husband and four little motherless girli. It seems that, she had anticipated her death for some time, as since her death two letters were found in her trunk which were written last September, ono addressed to ber husband and chidreu, and the other to her parents. At the request of many friends the family have consented for these letters to be published, and they are given below. These letters are filled with womanly love and for pathetic expostulation and tender solicitude we have never seen them equalled. Very few will be able to read them without shedding tears, and we believe that all whe do read them will be benefited. TO HER LOVEU ONE8. The letters are given below: "Sept. 16, 1896 "My " Darling Husband and Precious Little Girls : Day by day I grpw weaker and at times I think I cannot stay much longer with my loved ones. I feel that I cannot leave you all without releiving my mind of what I think about so much when I get real sick end am not uot able to to talk ; and when I get better my heart fails me and I cannot speak. "My children, God only knows how I grieve about them ; my four sweet little girls. Barney, I ask you to raise them up to serve the Lord. Tell them sometimes about their mamma ; how I loved them. Don't let them forget me when I am gone. No one would be to my little girls or to you like I would be. The Lord kuows best and if it His will to take me from tboee I love so dearly, I am willing to go. I don't dread going at all, for the Lord will be with me. Lucy, manma wants you to be a good girl ; pray to the Lord to make you so. Set a good example before your little , sisters; take care of them, and you get in trouble take it to your Heavenly Father and He will hear you. Care for mj motherles darlings, Mattie, Emmie and Lillie, when you grow older think of what your mamma wanti you to be-precious jewels, brighi for His crov.'u. Be good to eact other, don't quarrel, and help Lucj all you can. So muoh will be ex pected of her, as she is the oldest My first, sweet girl, words fail V express my love for you. Mj children aud husband, my iif< has been short but sweet. I'v never known trouble until now My dear husband, if you marry again, get somebody that is capable of raising our girls, and who is worthy of the love I know you will give her-the love I have known and appreciated. You will be mine again in death. I will ciaim you then. Another may be with you the rest of your li?>, but in death nothing can part us. I will be waiting and watching for you. I know that you will not forget your Lillie-think of me often, darling-your wife that loves you as no other can. H possible, love your childre more when I am gone ; watch over them and see that they always have plenty to eat and what they need to wear. God will bless you and them. I know He will. Raise them to trust the Lord with their whole heart and they will never want. Those who have known and loved me will love my children, and will help you with them. They will do by mine as they would like some one to do by theirs. I trust God for all those things and someone will help you with them. "Oh, my darlings little girls, I leave you all at the world's mercy, and in the hands of God. Do the best you can without me ; it cannot be long. Be ready to meet your mamma when the summons of Man comes. Goodbye my first and last love. Live to meet me-take good care of your children and yourself. Your true loving wife, Lillie. ANOTHER LETTER. "My Loved Ma and Pa : I can not say to you what I' feel, but .want to leave these few w?*da for you to read when I am gone. Your love and kindness to me has been more than I have deserved. I cannot thank you enough for what you have always done for me. I love you more than I can express. If I have lived I could never have repaid you. My darling husband and little ones have been so good ta me ; have been so thoughtful of me. I ask you, pa and ma, give them all the comfort and help, you can while you both live. 1 ask. you not to wear your lives away grieving for me You have helped to save me this long and now I feel that you have doue all you can for me. Live for your other children and my darling liltlo ones. If you can't hav your sweet Lillie with you in your old days, I leave you my sweet baby ; she will be your Lillie as long as you want her, or uutil tho Lord parte you., "Take her and let her fill my place in your heart. We will all have to die ; and you know the Lord's will must be done, not ours. I want my children kept together if possible, How you all will man age when I am gone is not for me to know. One happy thought-the Lord will provide for you all. "Tell Barney's sisters, Johnnie and mother to love and remember my children. Ma, you and pa must live nearer to God. Live prepared to meet me, for I.will die, hoping and trus tingthat the Lord, will give me restTYoulTuow it almost" breaks my heart, the thougt of lea- ing you all. My dear Tom, Bndd, Dotha and Charlie live as you would like to die. You know not when the summons will come. Let us all be together once more. "We have been happy here, all of us, but the chain must be bro ken, you know, some time, and I must be the missing link. There will, I trust, be a beckoning hand for all my loved ones. How I loved you. All love my precious husband and little ones. Ma, tell my children to always honor and obey you and pa, and when you ever need help to do all they can for you. If they would please me, they would obey you, and all kind friends that advise them."-Au gusta Herald. Why take Johnson's Chill & Fever Tonic?

Iff TOjll?TT" Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and let it stand for twenty-four hours; a sediment settling indicates an unhealthy condition ol the kidneys.

There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every wish in relieving pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of the urinary passages. It corrects inability to hold urine and sca'ding pain in passing it, or bad j effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to get up many times during] the night tc urinate.

I sometimes wonder which is best, The answer comes when life is gone. Some eyes sleep when some eyes wake, And so the dreary night hours go. Some hearts beat where some hearts break, I often wonder why 'tis so. Some will faint where some will fight; Some love the tent and some the field. I often wonder who are right The ones who strive or those who yield. Some hands fold where other hands Are lifted bravely in the strife, And so through ages and through lands Move on the two extremes of life. Some feet halt where some feet tread In tireless march a thorny way; Some struggle on where some have fled ; Some seek when others shun the fray. Some swords rust where others clash ; Some fall back where some move on ; Some flags furl where others flash Until thc battle bas been won. Some sleep on while others keep The vigils of the true and brave, They will not rest till roses creep Around their names above a grave. -Father Byan.
