SOCK HILL HAPPENINGS.
Sudden Death?Picnic at Oakland?Annual
Inspection?Condition of Mrs. Prel Mob*
ley?Other Matters.
Correspondence of the YorkvlUe Enquirer.
Rock Hill, May 17.?Mrs. Mary Matthews,
of Ebenezer, died suddenly yesterday
morning. When she arose in the morning
she was in her usual health. Her illness
came on without any warning whatever, and
the first intimation of it was discovered by
members of the household, that she was in
a fainting condition. She was removed to
her bed and died about 8 o'clock. The funeral
took place today at Ebenezer, and was
conducted by Rev. J. H. Thornwell. Mrs.
Matthews was 64 years of age, and leaves
eight children to mourn her loss.
A basket picnic was given by the children
of Rock Hill, at Oakland Park, last Friday.
It was largely attended by youug and old,
and greatly enjoyed by all. At an unusually
early hour, the children began gathering
on the streets awaiting the street cars and
other conveyances to the picnic grounds, and
long before the hour had arrived for the
crowning of the May Queen, the grounds
?'?4K a omoll ocmtr nf little
were wvereu mt>u a ouum v.
pleasure seekers, each trying to surpass the
other in merrymaking. Although the crowd
was large and the appetites of its members
were greatly sharpened by the playful exercise
of several hours, the dinner was abundant,
and none went away hungry. The
greater part of the afternoon was spent in
playing innocent games and in pleasure
rides. Miss Laura Ruff was crowned as the
queen.
The annual inspection of the Catawba
Rifles, by General Farley, took place on the
Academy green last Thursday. The company
was commanded by Captain A. E.
Smith. After the inspection, General Farley
was invited to make a speech to the company
and complied in a brief and impresssive manner.
He complimented the officers and men,
but at the same time assured them that he
was criticising rather than praising. He
said that the company had passed an inspection
that does credit to the militia of the
State.
The body of Ervin Powell, the deaf and
dqmb negro who was killed on the Air Line
railroad near Gaflney City, last Thursday
night, was brought here for burial. "Dummy,"
as he was called, was well known
about Rock Hill. His wife left him some
time ago and he left here in search of her.
He was reported to have been killed in the
Bullock's Creek section of the county several
weeks ago, and although his friends took
steps to ascertain that there was no foundation
for the report, they were unable to learn
of his whereabouts until the accident of
Thursday night.
Messrs. J. E. Poag and W. A. Steele were
thrown out of a buggy by a runaway horse
last Saturday. Both escaped without serious
injuries.
Mr. J. G. Anderson, of the Holler & Anderson
Buggy company, has just returned
from Savannah, Ga., where he sold two
hundred one horse wagons to one dealer.
Mrs. Frel Mobley, who fell from the piazza
of the second story of her house last
week, is considerably better, but she is not
yet out of danger.
Mr. Alfred Moore is quite sick at his home
on Elm street.
Mr. J. W. Cowan has returned from
Greenwood, where he has been engaged in
the cotton business.
Mrs. J. M. Cherry is visiting relatives and
friends in Charleston.
Mr. G. W. Sharpe, of Statesville, N. C.,
and Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Sharpe, of Hiddenite,
N. C., are visiting their brother, Mr. J. C.
Sharpe.
Dr. Wilson, president of Converse college,
preached at the First Presbyterian church
Sunday morning and night. J.
LETTER FROM HICKORY GROVE.
Will Go Into the Tanner)' Business?Some
Observations on the Wheat Question.
Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer.
Hickory Grove, May 16.?Mr. J. C. Wylie,
of this place, is going into the tannery
business. He will be somewhat of a pioneer
in this line in this territory, and I have no
doubt but that he will find a profitable field.
An old gentleman of this neighborhood
remarked in my hearing a few days ago that,
it no longer pays to raise wheat in this country.
His reason was that our mills cannot
make first class flour, and there is not enough
wheat raised to justify the millers in providing
the proper machinery. Our old friend is
right and he is wrong. It is true that the
millers do not have enough work to do to
justify their putting in expensive machinery,
but so far as the quality of the flour is concerned,
the Northwest does not compare with
us. They can make flour fluer ana wniter
than ours, but not more than one-fifth of it
is anything to compare with ours in quality.
But so far as that is concerned, if we will
just raise enough wheat, we need have very
little fear that the mills will follow in due
time.
Speaking of wheat, Mr. W. S. Wilkerson
says that it is the most profitable crop he
knows anything about. Aside from the
money value of the crop, there is nothing
else that is so good for the land. Every
crop sown pays, often when the harvest
scarcely yields more than the seed sown, especially
on cotton lands. In the cultivation
of cotton there is a tendency to work
all the vegetable matter out of the soil, but
such a quantity of vegetation always follows
a wheat crop that it cannot fail to be beneficial.
One of the greatest drawbacks to a
wheat crop now-a-days, is the late sowing.
People often put this work off until December,
when they should never allow it to be
neglected longer than the 1st of November.
The Baptists of this vicinity will organize
a church here on the fourth Sunday in this
month, and for the occasion have been tendered
the use of the Associate Reformed
church building. The exercises will be
commenced at 11 o'clock with a sermon by
Rev. R. G. Patrick, of Yorkville, and the
organization will be effected immediately
after the sermon.
Where planting was early, there is complaint
of bad stands of cotton and corn.
Later plantings, however, are more promising.

Ity of Etta Jane.
Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer.
Etta Jane, May 16.?Several of our people
are expecting to attend the meeting at
Hickory Grove on the fifth Sunday.
Mr. John W. Mitchell, of Hopewell, is
sick.
I had the pleasure of visiting the Broad
River Academy Sunday-school yesterday.
Forty-seven out of fifty scholars, teachers and
officers answered to roll call. This is the
most systematically conducted school I know
of. Not only the lesson, but the music is selected
one Sunday for the next. From the
question box, subjects are drawn by lot to
which speakers are assigned, and we learn
from the school officers that not a single case
has occurred in which the appointee has
failed to be on hand And perform the duty
assigned him. They have a splendid choir.
In fact, the whole is a solid working body?
not idlers. Mr. J. T. Howe is superintendent
; Mr. T. A. McKeown, assistant superintendent
; Mr. Scott Cobb, secretary and treasurer.
Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Wilkerson, Misses
Agnes Wylie and Rebecca Howe, are among
the teachers, a complete list of which I
failed to get. Although most of the members
are of different denominations, it is practically
a branch of Mount Vernon Sundayschool,
at which place they expect to have
a grand rally of forces sometime during the
summer.
Our people are busy chopping out cotton
now. The crop promises a fuir yield this
year Skjma.

regular meeting held on May 7th, 1892:

with its demands:
Therefore, be it resolved, That we support no
man for any office State, or national, who is not
in sympathy with the Ocala demands.

SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS.
? Afler a boisterous session of six hours,
the Charleston Democrats elected eighteen
delegates to the State convention. The delegation
is equally divided between the' Regular''
and "Reform" elemeuts, and goes uninstructed
as between Cleveland aud Hill.
? Judge Kershaw was taken suddenly sick
at Sumter, last Friday, while holding court.
He was removed to his home at CamdcD, and
at last reports was thought to be considerably
better. The physicians say that his illness
was an attack of congestion brought on
by indigestion.
? Jones Sanders, a white man, had his right
hand torn to pieces near Spartanburg, last
Wednesday, by an explosion of dynamite.
He was trying to kill fish in a mill pond by
the use of dynamite, and one of the cartridges
prematurely exploded in his hand. The
lacerated member had to be amputated.
? William Wilson, a white man of Anderson
county, in a fit of jealousy, on Tuesday
of last week, cut the throat of his wife and
then his own. His wife's head was r-.early
severed from her body and she died instantly.
At last accounts Wilson was in a very
precarious condition, and there was very little
probability of his recovery.
? The secretary of state, on last Friday,
issued a charter to the "Pendleton ctur>,' allowing
a capital stock of $2,000. Pendleton
is a dry town, and it is thought that the
charter was applied for in order that its members
might have the privilege of buying liquor
after the style of the Columbia club,
which was sustained in its practice by a decision
of the supreme court.
? Miss Mildred Thomson, of Spartanburg,
was married in Columbia, on Monday afternoon,
to Professor J. H. Marshall, of Char|
leston. The bride is a daughter of the late
J. S. R. Thompson. The groom is a graduate
of the University of Virginia and was
for four years a professor at Wofford college.
Until recently, he was editor of the Greenwood
Observer, but is now connected with
The News and Courier.
? Spartanburg cotton mills have had a reasonably
prosperous year. At the annual
meeting of the stockholders of Pacolet, last
week, a dividend of 5 per cent, for the past j
six months was declared. The Whitney i
mill declared a semi-annual dividend of 3$
per cent. The Clifton mills have also been
quite successful, but have suffered serious
disadvantage from having bought a large portion
of their cotton supply in the high markets,
and having been caught in the decline.
? Columbia Register : There were five contestants
at the examination for the West
Point cadetship, held at Chester, last Thursday.
The board of examiners consisted of
Professor J. L. Douglass, principal of the
graded school, and Messrs. J. C. McLure
and James Hamilton, and Dr. S. M. Davega.
William A. Moore, of Lancaster, secured the
highest average. Moore McConnel), of McConnellsville,
stood next as alternate, and j
James G. McFadden, of Chester, third.

son, of Spartanburg, has resigned her position
as lady manager for South Carolina on
j the World's Fair commission. Colonel A. P.
Butler, National World's Fair commissioner
| for South Carolina, filled the vacancy by the
j appointment of Miss Floride Cunningham, of
Charleston, who was alternate. This leaves '
j a vacancy which will be filled later. Miss
Cunningham has taken great interest in the j
work and will make an active and efficient i
lady commisioner.
? Governor Tillman lias consented to commute
the sentence of James, the patricidal
murderer of Darlington county, to life imprisonment.
James was convicted of the murder
of his father, several years ago, on circumstantial
evidence, and it was thought for
a long time that the deed was committed on
account of the parent's money. The case
has been in the courts ever since, but finally
resulted in a death sentence. A great many
people believe that there is considerable
doubt as to the young man's guilt, and the
petition asking for a commutation of the
sentence had over two thousand signatures.
? The State railroad board of equalization
met in the office of the comptroller general
last Wednesday, and agreed to practically
the same basis of assessment as that of last
year. The Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line
reported the value of their road at $8,500
a mile, and the board raised the valuation to
$18,000 a mile. The Three C's reported
valuation of $4,500, and the board made it
$10,000. The Chester and Lenoir reported
at $2,500, and the board assessed at $4,uuu.
The Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta was
raised from $8,000 to $14,000. The Georgia,
Carolina and Northern made its return at
$10,000 a mile, and the return was not changed.
Some of the returns may be reduced
and others raised at a subsequent meeting of
the board.
? John Henry Sloan, a cripple and notoriou^revenue
violator, with Dave Floyd, young
white men of Greenville, were arrested on
Saturday and carried before United States
Commissioner Heywood on the charge of
counterfeiting. It was proven by witnesses
that they have been manufacturing spurious
coins of nearly every denomination, both
gold and silver. Their counterfeits were
'above the average and they succeeded in
passing a great many before being detected.
| Among their outfit was a lot of "gieen goods"
literature, and it is supposed they have been
selling some of this stuff also. Sloan is a
cripple who walks on his hands and knees,
and owing to his condition the revenue officers
have been very lenient towards him in
the various cases for which he has heretofore
been accused. They now intend to prosecute
him to the extent of the law.
? The commencement exercises of the
Columbia Theological seminary were held
on last Thursday, and the institution was
closed until next fall. The members of the i
graduating class were : Reynolds 1'. Baird,
San Paulo, Brazil; Samuel C. Byrd, Tylersville,
S. C.; Chas. O. Martindale, Jr., Columbia,
S. C.; George P. Scoggin, Versailles,
Ky.; Newton Smith, Pelham, S. C.; Thos.
B. Trenholm, Columbia, S. C.; Louis T.
J Way, Savannah, Ga. The certificates were
[ presented by the Rev. William M. McPheeters,
D. I)., who made an excellent, though j
short address. He said he hoped the graduates
had learned the following things while j
at the seminary: First, the extent of their:
ignorance. He hoped they had learned that j
they did not know everything; second, the
great necessity of further and continual
! study ; third, how to study ; fourth, the need j
of the influence of the Divine Spirit on all |
' work to render it successful.
; ? Mention was made last week of a lynch-!
ing that was rumored to have occurred in
Berkeley county on Monday. Later informa- J
tion develops the fact that there was no
lynching, but an assassination, and the facts
are about as follows: For some time past
Mr. Elias Ball, the munager of a plantation
in Berkeley, had been very much annoyed by
depredations committed by live stock belonging
to negroes in the vicinity, and recently
he gave out a warning that lrom that time
any livestock found running at large on his
place would be killed. A few days afterward
a sow and her litter were shot and
killed by Mr. Ball's colored overseer, Edward
Chisholm. On Saturday night of last
went some nersons. evidently the owners of
the swine, ambushed themselves near Chisholm's
house, and at a good opportunity,
poured four loads of buckshot into his body,
killing hiin instantly. The assassins also
! fired at Mr. Hall's house and lied. The authorities
have made a careful search for the
| assassins, but as yet have not made any arrests.

the customary question, "Guilty or not guilty?"
"How the devil can I tell," said he, " 'till I can hear

Letter from Lesslle.
Jno. C. Kuykendal, Yorkvllle,S. C. Dear sir:
During my term as a Juror at the county seat, I lind
u painful attack of Dysentery. You were kind
enough to recommend u dose of Anti-Ferment, and
I think it my duty to you to state that the one dose
made a perfect cure in my wise. 1 had no more
trouble atter taking it. 1 do not object to your publishing
tills. Yours truly, W. J. Lesslie.
Deliverance of a Doctor.
Dr. Jno. C. Kuykendal: 1 consider Campbell's
Anti-Ferment the best remedy in existence for
stomachic disorders. I found it extremely efficacious
about a year ago?giving me prompt relief after
other remedies had failed. During an extended
journey by rail not long since I became very much
nauseated by the motion of the cars. I betook me to
Anti-Ferment with the happiest results. I think it
would prove invaluable to those who make ocean
voyages. Yours sincerely, M. W. White, D. 1). S.
Wylle Witnesses.
Dr. Jno. C. Kuykendal: A few days ago I was
suffering from an acute attack of Indigestion, and
after taking one dose of your Campbell's Anti-Ferment,
I was immediately relieved. In all such cases
I regard the Anti-Ferment as a wonderful remedial
agent. W. Brown Wylie, Clerk of Court.
The Testimony of a Veteran.
Mr. Robert S. Hope, of Lowrysville, Chester
county, S. C., is well known, either personally or
by reputation, to scores of reuders of Thk Enquirer,
and to them needs no introduction ut
my hands. To those who have not the pleasure
of his acquaintance, I will say that he is one of
Chester county's most successful farmers and
valuable citizens. He has probably owned and
used a Corbin Harrow longer than any other
fanner in upper South Carolina, and for this
reason his opinion of and experience with the
machine is possessed of peculiar value. I re
cently requested Mr. Hope to give ins opinion 01
the implement for publication, and lie has done
so. Here it is:
iiOWKYSViLLE, 8. C., Februury 11,1892.
Mk. 8am M. Grist, Yorkville, 8. C.: Dear 81r?You
request ine to give my opinion of the worth of the
Corbln Disk Harrow as a farm implement, after a
long experience in using one on my farm. In reply, I
would say that I place a very high estimate on the
Harrow. It does its work so thoroughly, and so rapidly,
that I think it justly entitled to Declassed as one
of the greatest lubor saving implements usedinfunn
husbandry.
I use my Corbin Disk Harrow to put in my small
grain crop very successfully. The Harrow pulverizes
the soil so thoroughly (leaving no clods behind it)
that 1 invariably secure a good stand of small grain,
and leaves the land smooth and in a condition to
harvest the crop with machinery, without further
labor or trouble.
The Harrow is a grand implement to use with a
pair of mules, but it is a far more efficient one with
four mules attached. I had used my Corbin Harrow
but a short time with a pair of mules until I was thoroughly
satisfied that I was not utilizing its full capacity,
or in other words that it was capable of doing a
great deal more work in a duy if I would weight it
down, add horse power and give it speed. 8ince then
I have used four good, strong mules to my Corbin
Harrow, and have more than realized my expectations.
The draught was so much lighter for the four
mules, notwithstanding the increased weight, thut
they could travel at greater speed and the harrow
accomplish greater results. The area of land I can
harrow in a day with four mules depends on its churnj't^r
on inv level, sandv lands, when I can secure
long, straight furrows, I "can, with an experienced
driver, harrow an acre of land every hour, or usually
ten acres a day.
I And my Corbin Harrow very useful In breaking
stubble land thoroughly and speedily.
It Is invaluable to pulverize cloddy bottom lands.
The disks cut the clods and pulverize und smooths the
land more effectually than any Implement I have
ever used for that purpose.
In a dry fall I consider the Corbin Disk Harrow indispensible
in putting In my crop of winter oats at the
proper time. [I think the lastof Augustorth^ first
week in September the proper time to sow]. If it is
dry weather and the land hard, I can, by weighting
down my harrow, and going over the land two or
three times, secure a well pulverized seed bed for my
oats?when I could not possibly plough up clods
enough to cover the seed?und when the rains come,
the outs spring up, grow and take good root before
the cold weather, and are prepared to withstand the
winter freezes when later sown oats, not so well rooted.
are often spewed up by the frost, the stand badly
injured, and the winter crop of oats a failure.
Yours Truly, It. S. Horn.
I always keep Corbin Harrows in stock, and
am prepared to deliver thorn to purchasers without
delay. Sam M. (Jhist, Sole Agent.

Buy the "Imperial Shirt" When
You Want the Best.
J^ET'ER ROLL! THE WHEELS ARE
GOING ROUND: THE STYLISH DRESS
GOODS ANI) MILLINERY ARE BEING
SNATCHED FROM OUR COUNTERS AND
SHELVES. The fact is, the blues and the inelancholly
feeling which has depressed our people
for the past six months is disappearing; the
stars are shining and the day is breaking on
prosperity; good feeling prevails and money
is coming out from the old socks; vegetation is
adding its beauties and lustire to the glories of
the universe; the humming birds are in the
nectary, and good will prevai ls among mankind.
With the sentiment written above, what is
more pleasing to the eyes than a becomingly
dressed woman among the bushes plucking the
dowers of every hue? Have you ever noticed
the innocent expression of their eyes, and how
this one was plucked and that one left?the perfectly
formed tlower plucked, the deformed left.
So it is, friends, in the selection of their Dress
fabrics. The ladies know where the choicest
dowers in the garden grow; they know where
the very bush stands; yes they know the very
bough and twig. This fact was fully attested
last Thursday and Saturday by the ladies who
presented themselves'at our counters, and by
the cash drawers' ringing words at night.
A NEW ARRIVAL OF DRESS GOODS
TODAY.
You should see our Crepons, Albatros, G'hantilly,
Crazy Cloth; and,yes, our 5 cent Muslins.
We have a lovely line of Millinery goods?in
fact many of the ladies think it the handsomest
we ever had. Our stock of Gloves and Embroideries
have captivated every one.
To the Gentlemen.
We have been mindful of our gentlemen
friends this season, as in the past, and have for
trieir inspection the HANDSOMEST LINE Oh'
CRAVATS ever displayed in our house, and at
amazingly low prices.
Our sales of GENTS' STRAW HATS last
Saturday completely paralyzed our stock, yet
we have a very good line left, which will he
closed out at almost any price for CASH.
Always buy the IMPERIAL SHIRT. We
have been handling it for sixteen years, and we
say it without hesitation, that it is the best Shirt
011 the market for one dollar.
If you want Clothing, remember that Latimer's
is the place 10 get it.
If you want a good Trunk, we can supply it.

THERE are hundreds, yes, thousands of men
all over this country who thoroughly realize
that no plan has yet been devised by which '
they can more easily and surely provide for those J
dependent upon them in case they are taken ]
away by death, than a life insurance policy in a >
tirst class company. They all expect to attend i
to the matter some day?next fall, next year, ,
when their financial condition is such that they '
can supply all their imaginary wants and have
a sufficient surplus to carry a policy. Thousands j
go down to the grave every year without attending
to the matter, and leave their dear ones
penniless and to depend either on charity or
to eke out an existence as best they can. Is the
picture familiar? Is it overdrawn? Read the
following extract from The Insurance Post, of
London, England, and learn what one who
speaks from bitter experience has to say on the
subject:
I am looked upon as a happy man. The world
says: "There is Bright ; he's a lucky dog. What 1
a lovely wife be baa ana wnai nne cuiiureu j n
you want to see a charming home, look in at 1
Bright's."
I was a happy man; I used to fancy myself one '
of the most fortunate fellows alive. I felt proud '
of the way I had got along; sometimes I used to '
think I surely must have been l>orn under a
lucky star; I seemed to prosper in everything.
When I began in the store I was the junior clerk, i
but I worked up; promotions never seemed to [
fall in anybody's -way faster than they did in
mine.
Everybody said when I married: "Bright's a
lucky dog." My wife was the belle of the city; ,
it would have gladdened the hearts of fifty fellows
whom I might name to have won her if
they could, but her love was reserved for me.
Then the children?well, well, a father's praises
are usually accepted with grains of allowance;
I won't say anything that might seem to be j
mere parental rapture. '
Now, I've mentioned the reason why the world .
thinks me a happy man. Perhaps you think
the world is right 7 My God! I wish it was.
The other day an old friend, a school chum,
called on me at the store: we got to talking about
life insurance. I don't know how many life insurance
men have tried to induce me to insure
my life; I always put them off. Frankly, I
never thought seriously about needing life insurance?never
thought I needed it now. I remember
that I said to myself, "After awhile."
I knew I hadn't saved any money, but then
I would. Once an agent tried to tell me it was ,
my duty towards my wife and children to in- ,
sure ; I thought him impertinent. He made me i
angry; I told him I knew my own business.
My friend urged me to take a policy, as he had ,
lately engaged in the life insurance business. |
Finally, I said i wouia, (minting n. ? m>ui ^
him ; it was easier to say yes than no. I went to i
be examined by the medical examiner. Two or ;
three days later I was asked to call again. I
was examined a second time. I thought the
proceedings a bore, and began to wish I had not
signed the application.
A week after my friend came into the store;
I asked him about mv insurance, and he said the
company had rejected, the application. He didn't ,
say it quite as direct as this, but in a roundabout ,
hesitating way. He tried to be gentle in imparting
the information. ,
At last I came to understand that I was uninsurable.
"Kidney disease?incurable," the examiner
said. I consulted an eminent physician.;
lie confirmed it?quietly told me I might live
two years. *
Two years!?two years in which to prepare to
die! I dare not tell my wife; it would be well
enough by-and-by. \ Like a condemned felon,
I count the days and hours?days and hours in ;
which to breathe silent farewell to those I love.
What can I do in two years?such years? What .
provision can I make for them ? I said I never
thought seriously about life insurance. I never
did until now, when it is too late.
"Uninsurable !" rings in my ears. Never did
a leper shudder more at those words descriptive
of his fearful doom, "Unclean! unclean!" than I
do as the voice in my ear says, "Uninsurable!"
It says more than that. It tells me of the cruelty
of my procrastination; it tells me that I am
dead, that my dear wife and children are destitute.
My God! it is hard to bear. Everything
that made me happy before makes me wretched
now. The agony of the thought of parting from
my fanUly. terrible as it is, is as nothing to the
certain ktiowTcnge that I shall leave them comparatively
poor. I himg figured it all out; after
paying my funeral expcnscfttkerewill be barely
1 ? hTtatma/ifltiaQ rtoa
enougll leu lO Slipuiy mem ? tin ure i in, ^
of life for six months. ? ? ? My friend's h*ve
begun to notice that "Bright lias acted queer lately."
* * 9 I saw a young woman today
begging on the street, and witn her were two
little children, who tugged at her skirt and cried:
"Mamma, please take us home; we are so cold
and hungry."
The Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association of
New York, has been in existence eleven years.
It is incorporated under the laws of that State.
It has a Reserve Fund of $3,210,404, and every
dollar of this amount is for the protection of policy
holders. It has over $218,000,000 of insurance
in force. It has paid death claims to the amount
of $12,556,218, and has never swindled or attempted
to swindle a beneficiary out of a single cent.
It furnishes life insurance at about half the rate
charged by the "old line" companies. It has
saved its policy holders over $'10,000,000 as compared
to what they would have been forced to
pay the "old line" companies. Policies non-forfeitable
and non-contestible after three years.
The MUTUAL RESERVE is the largest Natural
Premium company in the world, and although
only eleven years old, is the FOURTH
largest of ANYKIND.

CATTLE
POWDERS,
ARE AS NECESSARY TO THE HEALTH
OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM AS IS
MEDICINE TO THE HUMAN FAMILY,
rhis is not unreasonable, is it? Why should they
not, with all the sudden atmospheric changes, require
scientific assistance to nature, just as much
is the human family ? Is the proposition fair?
Several weeks ago we commenced the adverting
of HORSE AND CATTLE POWDERS,
since which time we have placed tnem in me
[lands of some of the
BEST FARMERS IN THE COUNTY,
who have tried them with highly satisfactory remits.
If you are a neighbor or any of the following
gentlemen, ask them what they think
if our HORSE AND CATTLE POWDERS.
Mr. Jetf Garrison has bought three packages ;
Mr. Jno. Smith, three packages; Mr. Matthews,
three packages; M r. Stevenson, three packages;
Mr. Bigger, three packages; Mr. Love, six packages,
and many others who we can't now call to
mind. In every section of the county, within a
radius of eighteen miles, our Cattle Powders are
used.
IT WILL PAY YOU,
or anyone else, to use them. It saves corn and
other feed and keeps stock in an elegant condition.
We sold 132 packages in three weeks, in
lots of from one to six packages at a time. We
desire to say one word about the formula of
these powders. They are made expressly for
us by Parks, Davis <fc Co., one of the largest and
most reliable firms of manufacturing aniggists
in the country, and the ingredients used are
ABSOLUTELY PURE.
In other words, they are made from Dr. Hancock's
Formula which is endorsed by the Agricultural
Department of the United States. It
will save thousands of little chicks and make
them sound and healthy. Many a large old fat
hen will come to Yorkvilleand be converted into
money, which otherwise would die of disease.
FOR THIRTY DAYS
More we will continue to offer these goods at
THREE PACKAGES FOR FIFTY CENTS.
Our reason for making these reductions is to introduce
them to the farmers; to show them their
value. A single package is sold at 25 cents.
SO COME AT ONCE BOYS
And get your powders and save your Horses,
Cows, Mules and Chickens. These powders am
worth the money that is asked for them, and we
cannot afford to give away a house and lot with
each package sold. They are put up in paper
cartoons which keeps them fresh and good.
ACT WISELY
And lajTln your supply and see that your stock
is cared for. It prevents disease ana will eonviitte
you in a very short time that it is the
best investment you ever made.

RIDDLE & CARROLL.
TO MERCHANTS.
WE take pleasure in informing the merchants
of Yorkville and the surrounding
towns that we are now in a position to supply
them with LORILLARI) and RAM.ROAl)
MILLS SNUFF at Richmond, Baltimore or
New York wholesale prices with the freight left
oil'; or in other words merchants who buy their
snull'froin us will save the freight. Istfiisuny
inducement? Send in your orders.
Economical and Effective.
There is very little doubt but there will be
a considerable reduction in tin; cotton area in
York county this year, and we hope the change
will prove a blessing to all the people. If the
cotton planted yields a profit to the growers, it is
absolutely necessary that the expense of raising
the crop be minced to the lowest point consistent
with thorough preparation and cultivation. Now
it is to be supposed that the preparation feature
has already been attended to, and the next?the
cultivation?will commence in avervshort time.
All live, progressive farmers now admit that the
SIDE HARROW is the most economical and effective
device forthe cultivation of young cotton,
and all who have tested those bundled by us
during the past two seasons are enthusiastic in
their praise, and all who have examined them
admit that they are ahead of any other HARROW
of this style on the market. We want to
call the attention of those who need or expect to
Bl'Y HARROWS, to the fact that we now have
in our warehouse a largo lot ofthese JIOM r?\CELLKNT
IMPLEMENTS, and that we are
prepared to quote prices that will please economleal
buyers. Comequiek.
