Taber, October 10.-Crop gather
ing is progressing nicely in our vi
oinity. In fact, colton is most all
cut. The corn on the bottom lands
was mostly destroyed by the over
flows in tho summer. ob our crops
are generally short.
Tho farmers of this seotion have
organised a cotton association at Ta
ber and have passed resolutions to
hohl their cotton for ll cents, ex
cept where forced to sell. Wo would
be glad to hear of the farmers organ
izing in every school district in the
State. This would belo to unite
the farmers and bring them in closer
touch with each other and help them
to work more systematically in con
trolling the price of their produce.
Many farmers in iho rural districts
do not seem to realize what has been
done for them in the way of keeping
the price of cotton np to where it
should be. While perhaps thc cot
ton association has not accomplished
every thing it intended lo it has done
wonderfully well and it ?K the duty
of every farmer to join hands and
help to carry out all plans and reso
lutions adopted by the association.
We arc glad to learn that our trus
tees have employed John O. Hicks
to teach our winter tenn of school
Wo have an up-to-date school
house, nu 11 |ilied with an organ and
patent desks. We feel sure of a
successful school. Farmer.

Reward will be paid to any
person who can find one atom
of opium, chloral, morphine,
cocaine, ether or chloroform
in any form in any of Dr.
Miles' Remedies.
This reward is offered because
certain unscrupulous persons
make false statements about
these remedies. It is under
stood that this reward applies
only to goods purchased in the
open market, which have not
been tampered With in any way.
Dr. Miles' remedies cure by
their soothing, nourishing,
strengthening and invigorat
ing effects upon the nervous
system, and not by paralyzing
and weakening the nerves as
would be the case if these drugs
were used.
For this reason Dr. Miles'
Anti-Pain Pills are universally
considered the best pain remedy
"I have Buffered for 26 years with
severe pitlns In my head, heart and
back, and have trice' everything* I
could set and could not find any relier
until I Rot a box of Dr. Miles' Antl
Paln Pills. I suffered as long aa ll
hours at a time with such severe
pains that I feared I would lose my
mind. Tho Anti-Pain Pill? gave me
relief In from 10 to 20 minutes. I do
not have to use Morphine any more.
I wish you would publish this so that
other sufforor* may find relief."

The dispensary at Marion closed

Full roturns of the dispensary

Thc Supreme Court of South Ca
rolina has decided that John Wal
drop must serve life-sentenco iu the
penitentiary. Waldrop was con
victed in Greenville county of the
murder of S. J. Maddox and recom
mended to tho mercy of tho court,
lie was given a life-term and the ap
peal has been turned down by the
Supreme Court.
The finding of a man's head in the
front of 015 East Eighteenth streut,
New York, led to the discovery of
the murder, on Ootober 12th. The
head waa wrapped in a white and
blue Blurt and the Sunday supple
ment of a German newspaper. Soon
after the head was found a man told
the police he believed the murder
had been committed at 149 Third
avenue, and that the body had been
cut up. A search of the houso re
sulted in the discovery of the arms
and legs of a man in a suit case and
the trunk of the body was found iu
the oloset.
Thc law, which was allowed to
take its course in the Jim Padgett
oase, has been vindicated. About
two months ago the negro so con
ducted himself towards a respectable
little girl at Johnston that a lynch
ing was avoided by sending Padgett
to the penitentiary for safe-keeping.
He was brought to Edgefield court
house from the penitentiary and
placed upon trial for assault with in
tent to rape. He is a mulatto, S3
years of age, and his intended vic
tim is a white girl, 13 years of age.
She gave her testimony against him
in a modest way. The jury retired
to their room only long enough to
write the verdict of guilty. Judge
Gago sentenced Padgett to twelve
years' confinement in the peniten
tiary on October lilli.
