McClain reports that his corn harvesting experiment of last fall was a complete success. The reporter asked him about the matter a few days ago, and that was bis very encouraging report. It will be remembered that instead of harvesting his big corn crop in the 1 *r_ usual way, air, nicv/iauu wmvcu uum about two weeks after the fodder was ready to pull, when he went through the field with a harvesting machine, cut the stalks down close to the ground and shocked them up, to remain until later in the fall, when he ran the stalks through a shredder. The shredder husked the corn and cut stalks, fodder blades and husks into small pieces ranging from an inch or so in length down Jo the fineness of wheat bran. This stuff, which is called stover, was salted down, packed in bales and 1 stowed away in the barn. Some 20 tons were lost as the result of a long wet spell; but fully 100 tons or more was safely housed. The reporter asked Mr. McClain as to the value of this stover, compared with peavine hay. He replied : "Well, of course you know that it contains a considerable sprinkle of grain. 1 do not consider it as good as peavine hay by about 15 per ceDt. The stock, however, are all foud of it. They eat it with as much relish as you could desire. I am satisfied that it is worth as much per ton as the best timothy hay, and I am not certain but what it is worth more. I think it is ' worth more. I think it is more valuable." "Then you are thoroughly satisfied t with your experiment?" "I am so well satisfied that I shall never again attempt the plan of pulling corn and fodder separately. Counting the saving in the expense of har vesting and the saving on account of utilizing stalks and other material that would have otherwise been wasted, I 1 tbink I get at least 25 per cent, more value out of my last crop than I would have gotten under the old method." "How about the condition of the corn as saved by this process ?"' "The only damage there was arose from the falling down of a few ears to the ground. I mean, of course, on account of this method. There was i more rotten corn than usual last year, < you know ; but it was not attributable ^ to curing in shocks. The proportion that was damaged by reason of the curiDg process, did not amount to more than 1 per cent, of total da nage sus- i tained by the crop. In fact I doubt if there was any more damage than ! there would have been had I followed the old method. But you may say that I am forever done with the old ' method." * m LOCAL LACONICS. Moving the Telegraph Office. Western Union linemen are at work removing the telegraph office from the "Kuykendal" to the "Moore building." Agent Beard will probably be comfortably quartered in his new of- 1 fice by this afternoon. Cotton Seed Sales. There have been large sales of cotton seed by farmers of the surrounding country during the past few weeks. In some instances the farmers have been exchanging the seed for commercial fertilizers, and in others they have been taking the cash. All For 12 Cents. A Rock Hill policeman ran upon , three little Negroes playing craps in an old outhouse on Monday and arrested the entire party. They had among them 12 coppers; but gave information which resulted, before the investi gation was completed, in tbe arrest 01 eight other Negroes. At last accounts t all 11 were in tbe guardhouse charged with gambling. A "Feller" Told Him. Rock Hill Herald : "The Yorkville Enquirer reports that Mr. T. G. Culp has not said he expected to ( leave Fort Mill and make his home in Yorkville. There has been a rumor to that effect for a month or longer, and ^ a gentleman from Yorkville told The Herald that Mr. Culp would move to that town as soon as he could secure an acceptable home. It was upon this information that we made our recent statement that Mr. Culp would remove to Yorkville." It was Mr. Culp ; not The Enquirer, who denied the story. The Herald will please observe the distinction. Almost a Hundred. A correspondent at Fodder sends a statement of the recent death near that place of Nelson Dixon, an old Negro who lacked but a year of being 100 years of age. He is reported to have been born in Virginia on March 10, 1800, and be came to South Carolina in 1807 as a slave of the late Colonel Edward Avery. He served Colonel Avery until the close of the war as a foreman. Dixon was the father of 13 children. He had 87 grandchildren, 147 great grandchildren and 7 greatgreat grandchildreu. The old fellow was blind during the last 16 years of his life. He continued in a good state of mind, however, up to the moment of bis death. Death of Captain MilU. Captain Edward R. Mills died suddenly at his home in Rock Hill last Saturday of heart failure. He was on the streets the day before in the best of health. Mrs. Mills noticed shortly before 6 o'clock that her husband was quite ill and started out for assistance; but before she returned he was dead. Captaiu Mills was a gallant soldier of the late war. He bad resided in Rock Hill for about 23 years. He was a member of the Presbyterian church and for several years has been the oldest ruling elder in Bethel presbytery. He was ordained an elder while still a very young man, and at the time of bis death had held the office for 52 years. He was something over 70 years of age. To Entertain the Veterans. According to The News and Courier, on the occasion of the Confederate reunion, nearly all of the private families in Charleston will entertain visitors. It has been arranged that rich J olito will phoro-R nominal QUU puvi aiinv board. This is for good reasons. Most of the visitors will feel better if they pay their expenses out of their own pockets, and if the rich should entertain free of charge, their action would hardly be fair to the poorer families who may be unable to do the same thing. But this will only apply to those who are able to pay and who desire to do so. <3ld veterans who may not be able to pay, will not be neglected. They and the public may depend upon that. Library For the Graded School. Superintendent Dendy and the teachers at the Graded school have started a movement looking to the establishment of a first-class library for the use of the children. The movement has the full endorsement of the trustees, the individual members of which have made liberal private subscriptions amounting in the aggregate to about $25. Superintendent Dendy has been carrying a subscription paper among the leading citizens, and up to last Saturday afternoon every individual he approached put down something. The reporter is assured that it is the intention of Superintendent Dendy, the teachers and the trustees to continue to push the undertaking for all there is in it. The matter is deserving of the most liberal support. A first-class library will be of incalculable benefit, not only to the Graded school children, but to tne people or toe iowo geuermly. WAIFS FROM WARREN. Name of the Station Chanced to Ogden? Note* About People. Correspondence of the Yorkrille Enquirer. Warren, February 27.?The railroad officials have changed the name of our station from Warren to Odgen, which makes the name of the station one thing and that of the postoffice another. This causes a great deal of confusion in the mails. Therefore, the postmaster is having a petition, signed by the patrons of^ the office, which will be sent to the postmaster general, asking him to change the name of the office to Ogden. Mr. W. Banks Workman has been quite sick the past week. He is affected with some brain trouble, and his friends have been very anxious about him. His physicians say he is on the road to recovery now, and, with proper attention, will soon be up again. Mrs. S. E. Steele has been quite sick also ; but is improving somewhat. Mr. A. L. Neely has a very sick child which is also improving. There is a great deal of complaint of sore throat in this section in the form of tonsillitis. Mr. Cornelius Bigbam had a valuable cow killed by a train on the South ern railroad not long ago. As to whether he will recover damages from the railroad or not, we have not learned. We are anxious to see some fair weather, not only to dry the roads up, but that we may start to preparing our lands for auother crop. This time last year there had been considerable plowing done in this section. So far there has not been a furrow run. It is Dot thought that the recent cold spell damaged the small graiu to much extent in this section. If the weather had been favorable, there would have been considerable oats sowu in this section by this time. If the ground drys sufficient for plowing any time soon, there will be some sown yet. We will not pretend to say who is the happier of the two?Mr. E. W. Comer or Mr. A. L. Neely. They both have brand new girl babies at their homes. S. K. J. OUT IN THE PHILIPPINES. The Trouble Continues an Lively as It Has Been. A dispatch from Admiral Dewey, dated at Manila on February 24, and saying: "For political reasons the Oregon should be sent here at once," raised quite a breeze last Saturday. The public was unable to understand the nature of the political reasons which demanded the presence of the Oregon. The navy department explained that the dispatch was giveD out by mistake; but that it bad uo special signiBcaoce. It only meant that the Oregon was desired for use in overawing the Filipinos. Members of Ko nukinof c/mtilorl iKo iHbq iKal fior. many was getting ugly again, and there has not since been any developments that have thrown light on the subject. There is a considerable amount of stuff being published from day to day under Mauila dates ; but it is generally conceded that the press censorship is quite strict and it is impossible therefore to judge what "news" is true and what is false. There is good reason to believe, however, that the city ol Manila is pretty well surrounded on the land side by the Filipinos and that the Filipinos are holding their own quite stubbornly. As the result of the disturbances of last week in the city, all of the American women have been taken on board the transports and war vessels for safety. A Manila dispatch to London says that European civilians in Manila can easily secure safety from molestation by the mere announcement of their nationality. American civilians only are unsafe. The American army is represented to be on the defensive. Several times large bodies of insurgents have been found within the American lines and have been driven back only after severe fighting. The insurgents are said to be boasting of their ability to destroy every building in Manila and declaring their intention to do this. A Madrid dispatch of Sunday represented the receipt of dispatches from Manila stating that foreigp warships were loading marines to look after various European interests. Washington says that this is all rot and nothing of the kind has occurred. The Madrid stories generally seek to make it appear that the American occupation of me r uiuppiues, su iar, is vcijr pi^^an0U8. SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS. Mercantile Trust. The merchants of Anderson city have formed a Mercantile Protective association. The object of the organization is to protect its members from the class of people who do not pay their accounts. The members propose to make it hard for "dead-beats" to get credit. Broke OK Like a Piece of Wood. Monroe Enquirer: Wm. Catoe, of Lancaster county, S. C., went to Kershaw on Monday of last week and started for his home near Taxahaw, about nightfall; but he became so benumbed by the cold that be lay down by the roadside, where he was found on Tuesday morning, in an unconscious condition. On attempting to take off one of the unfortunate man's shoes, a foot broke of at the instep as if it had beeu a piece of wood. Both feet and one arm bad to be amputated. It seems unreasonable that a man could live lying on the snow for 10 hours with the temperature 10 degrees below zero. * littl l j UU IIIC ?f W> Spartauburg special of Sunday to the Columbia State: Larry Guntt has on his war paiut. Since be began the publication of The Evening Star he has been rather lamb like; but he has broken loose now in redoubled fury. For several evenings be has been after Representative D. E. Hydrick in a mild way ; but bis three-column editorial and one column poem in yesterday's issue goes for Hydrick and incidentally for Congressman Wilson, with gloves ofif. He charges that Hydrick had the county government law as to Spartanburg county changed so as to allow Hydrick and Wilson to manipulate county affairs. To prove this he enumerates many things, which, he says, will be shown by the records in the supervisor's office. He Bays he is on the warpath and promises a chapter every day for days to come. He devoted one issue of this week to what he unwillingly called "kickiug the dead corpse of Seuator Archer." Larry is evidently out for some sort of entertainment, and those not directly interested will watch the fun he raises among the animals with his sharp slick. Waylaid and Shot. Charleston dispatch of Sunday to the Columbia State : Thomas Pinckney, Jr., a prominent young lawyer of this city, was shot three times and probably fatally wounded on Pitt street early this morning. Mr. Pinckney had been out calling and was returning home when the shooting occurred. To a friend named Arthur Barnwell, who had been calling at the same , bouse, and who was the first person to reach him after the Bhooting, he said that two Negroes came up to him on the street, demanded that he bold up his hands, and shot him when be refused to do so. Mr. Pinckney is in a very critical condition and cannot be seen personally. The police are at work on the case and believe that all of the facts regarding the affair have not yet come out. They have arrested I Diionimnn Mr Pinck n^uiiicKiut0UuOi.>,rv.vu. ney is a sod of C. C. Pinckney of this city, and a member of the well-known South Carolina family of that name. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia, and is prominent in the most exclusive social circles of the city. He is popular throughout the city, and the tragedy is deeply deplored. He received three wounds ; one in the groin and two in the back. His ante-mortem statement has been taken, but this is, of course, not available for publication now. Tonight he is reported to be in a most critical condition. SENATORIAL SPECULATION. Looks Like Xalbert Wants to Kan AgalnHt Tillman. Special to the News and Courier. Representative Talbert is too busy fighting subsidies and the pensions to pay serious attention to the political rumors which occasionally float up this way to the effect that he proposes to make a race for the senate against Seuator Tillman. Mr. Talbert says he has given the subject simply a passing thought, suggested by an occasional letter he receives from an enthusiastic constituent. He assures rue that he is perfectly satisfied with his present position in the house, and is contented to remain here and render such service to his constituents as long as they are satisfied with his stewardship. He has made it a rule since he entered congress to refrain from interfering in any way with local or state politics. He contends that members of cougress should combine their efforts to promoting the best interests of the people of the state from a national standpoint, and allow others to manage local politics. With his characteristic conservatism, Mr. Talbert says he does not know what he would do if the people of the state were to ask him to go up higher; but for the present he i is entirely satisfied to represent the Second district in the house of representatives. ?ppl Notices.
