WEDNESDAY, JULY 21,1897. MART CANTELOU ERUNSON On laBt Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock the sad and grief-stricken friends of Mrs. Arthur Branson gathered in the Baptist Church to pay their loving tribute, to her memory. In bpite of the exceed ingly inclement weather, many from country and town were pres ent. Mrs. Branson was the only daughter of the late Rainsford Cantelou, Esq., and Mrs. Mary Cantelou. Fourteen months ago Mrs. Branson was married, at her home by Rev. J.- P. Mealing, who also received nor confession ??of faith ia her Saviour many years ago, and also officiated with the assistance-of Dr.. L. R. Gwajtney, at her funeral ceremonies.: His) words wore full of comfort to the* bereaved, and an inspiration to a better arid more useful life to all who listened to them. Mrs: Bran son was beloved with intense de votion bykher husband, brothers, and mother, for she was a woman of tender sympatriie3, anvl full of loving deeds, and self-sacrificing love for those about her. ' The Lord knoweth them that are His," and often sends the reaper to take them ere" the hearts o: earth's loved ones are prepared to' relinquish them. But so it seems good in His sight, and who can question the wisdom of the Almighty, for His ways are past finding out.

EDITOR: As you well know each, county is entitled to one Sen. ator-no more nor no less-and yet virtually Greenwood has two Senators and E?ge?el? none. And that is not as it should be. Yet some people-^people with a mo tive perhaps-say that we had bet ter let the "Greenwood gentlemen" ' hold their Edgefield offices; that said ''gentlemen" will do as well as any, and that to hold another election will be trouble and ex pense for nothing. Out upon such reasoning. It is, not right for a Greenwood man to hold an Edge field office and make laws for the Edgefield people, and no amount of argument can make it right and if it is not right, why we as a free people should battle for the right until tho wrong is remedied. And th? miserable bosh that a Greenwood man can represent us as well as an Edgefield man, is a doctrine altogether against com mon eense and the rights of the people. Therefore, so, long as the "Greenwood gentlemen" Gain?e and Yeldell, refuge to give up their illegally held offices, so long ought the people denounce them as vain Pretenders and arrogant Usurpers. To these views, Mr. Editor, hum bly but honestly given, I will ever HOLDTIGHT. Petit Jurors, August Term. FIR8T WEEK.

The matter of appointment Is a social one says he, Ab well as a political reward, And where there never was a negro P.M. There shall never be one in accord. Now, Mr. Editor, agreeable to a former declaration of Gen. Gary, that no democrat need apply for appointment or reinstatement where there can be a republican black or white found, I have to Bay that if his former and later decor ations mean anything they mean the effectual elimination of demo cratic and colored republican ap plicants. Thus you see the race is entirely with white republicans. As for Edgefield P. 0. we 'iave only two applicants, viz.: W. D. Ramey and T. A. Odom.

Mr. M. D. Lyon and two of his lovable daughters, Missos Lillia and Minnie, went to the barbecue and picnic at Alliance Hall last Thursday. Quite a number from this section went down also. Judge John Glover has just suc ceeded in felting up a baseball nine at this place, which will be> ready to play any of the boys in a short time. I am told that the team is composed of blacksmiths, lawyers, farmers, millers, clerks, doctors and a judge. Mr. J. F.

I think it would be a good id9a for some one to invent some plan by which poli tics could be run by water power. Seems to me it would beat the gas arraugement used for the past few years. Mrs. J. F. Atkins, who has been sick for sometime, is much im proved. The ice cream festival to bo given here next Saturday night will be a grand success beyond doubt.

Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and let it stand for twenty-four hours; a sediment settling indicates sn unhealthy condition of the kidneys. When urine stains linen it is positive evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre quent desire to urinate or pain in the back, is also convincing proof that the kidneys and bladder are oui of order. WHAT TO DO. 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 passage?. It corrects inability to hold urine and scalding pain in passing it, or bad effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to get up1 many times during| the night to urinate. The mild and tne extraordi nary effect of Swamp Root is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures of the most distress ing cases. If you need a medicine you should have the best.
