Chrysanthemums are pretty because
they bloom when other fiowers are dead.
Only a few years ago chrysanthemums
were of only one variety, and those were
scrimpy and ugly. Owing to careful cul?

up to a high degree of perfection. There
are now several hundred varieties. A large
number of our ladies take considerable
interest in growing them. .

Coroner Nance went down into Hall
Township oo Tuesday of last week to
hold an inqnast over the body of an in?
fant child of Jim and Julia Had don, negro
tenants on the plantation of Mr. M. E.
Tucker. The parents swore that the child
slept with them Monday night; that dur?
ing the night it awoke, and, after crying
for a few minutes, the mother nursed it
and it was soon asleep again : next morn?
ing they found it dead iu ihe bed. Drs. A.
G. Cooke and M. A. Thompson made a
post-mortem examination of the child,
and testified that its neck was broken in
two places. The child it seems was born
a few months ago while Jim Haddon was
serving a term In the Penitentiary. When
he returned home he told his wife that if
ehe would give the child away or get rid
of it, he would live with her again. This
she promised to do. These and other
facts, with the statements of Drs. O;oke
and Thompson, convinced the jury of in?
quest that the child had been murdered,
and they returned the following verdict:
"That the child came to its death by its
neck being broken by the hand:) of Jim
and Julia Haddon." Jim and Julia have
been committed to Jail to await their trial
for murder.
The following notice, which was clipped
from a Texas paper, has been seat to us
with the request that we publish it:
"Died, on Thursday morning, October 29,
about 1 o'clock, at the residence of D. M.
McClain, Rev- J. M. Gambrell, after an
illness of only a iew days. The deceased
was born in Anderson District, South
Carolina, February 15, 1816, aud, conse?
quently was past his seventy-fifth year at
his death. He was converted before he
was sixteen years old, and joined the
Baptist Church at Dorchester, noar the |
place of his birth, and was ordained as a
preacher April 17, 1852. In 1838 be was
married to Miss Amy Horton, who sur?
vives him. He moved to Georgia, in 1859,
and to Texas in 1871, and settlod at Huns- :
villc, where he and his family lived until
1873, when they came to McLennan Couu
ty and lived in same locality until his
death. Funeral services wore conducted
by Rev. C F. Maxwell at the Baptist
Church at 3 o'clock p. in. Thursday, and
the remains laid to rest in the Old Perry
gr&veyard at 5 o'clock p. ni." There are
no doubt a number of the readers of the
Intelligencer who will remember Mr.
Gambrell and who will regret to hear of
his death.
Prof. George Bartholomew's "Equine
Paradox" will be at the OperaHoase next
Friday aud Saturday evenings with a mat?
inee Watu-day afternoon at 3 o'clock. Prof.
Bartholomew carries twenty-five horses
that are said by press and people to bo the
best trained animals in the world. A citi?
zen of Anderson, who saw the exhibition
in Columbia last week, in a private letter
to Manager Hill says : "The horse show
is good. It i3 just wonderful to seethe
control Prof. B. has over his horses,
They seem to have the intelligence of men.
The'drill ia the most remarkable thing of
the kind I ever saw." The Columbia
State, in speaking of the exhibition says :
"It would require too much space to enu?
merate the many maneonvros executed by
them last night, but the most wonderful of
all wae the bell ringing music. To carry
out this required a large number of bells
of various notes. They were placed on a
board or table extending across the stago,
and after some promiscuous ringing the
professor told hia company of horses to
give the audience the *'Last Rose of Sum?
mer." To the astonishment of all, the
horr.es began to play, aud carried the tune
as distinctly aud correctly as though they
were experienced musicians. This is
something never attempted before by any
troop of horaes and It has hitherto been
thought impossible to train them to such an
extent. The whole performance was mar?
velous, and everybody should seo these

Rev. Thomas Fisher Gadsden is de-ad.
Thri sad announcement woa about, the first
news that rbached our Citizens last Tues
day morning os they emerged from their
homes, and a great shock it was to every,
body, for very few knew thai thegood man
*.vns ill. Hia illness was ofshort duration.
Two weeks ago he contracted a severe
cold while in Walhalla. He came home
and nn Wednesday of last week was forced
to t-dco his bed. lie gradually grew worse
until a severe case of pneumonia was de
Vvloped, which caused his death at 5.30
o'clock Tuesday morning. Ho was j
conscious up to almost the last moment,
and he parsed into eternal rest without a J
Mr. Gadsdeu was born and roared in
Charleston, and was a sou of the Rt. Rev;
Bishop Gttdsden, deceased. He was born
March (J, 1831?. and was therefore in the
53rd y?tr of his hge. After being thor?
oughly trained in the private schools of
hi? unlive oity. he entered the South Caro?
lina College, from which ho graduated.
Shortly after his graduation the war came
ou jind be offered his services to his State
at a member uf the Marion Artillery, un?
der the command of Capt. E. L. Parker.
He served throughout the war; and made
a good record as a soldier. At the close of
the war he entered the ministry of the
Episcopal Church, and about the same
time married Miss Trapior, of Camden.
His first charge was the Church at Mt.
Ploisant in connection with two other
parishes. He continued work there until
1877, when he come to Anderson, since
which time he has resided hero, serving
faithfully as rector of the Anderson, Pen
dleton, Senecs and Walhalla Churches.
The Churches at the two latter places were
organized during his ministry.
Truly a good man has fallen, and has
gone to reap the rewards of a consecrated
life spent in the service of the Lord. He
was not onlj- greatly beloved by his own
congregations, but our whole people, of
whatever name or denomination highly
esteemed him and will miss him in his
work. He was a frequent visitor to the
humblest homes of our city, and wherever
be found sorrow and suffering, he was
ever ready to speak a comforting word
and do anything possible in the name ot
tho Saviour. His memory will long be
cherished by his friends and acquaint
ances, who deeply sympathize with his
fcm?y in their great bereavement.
The funeral services will take place this
(Thursday) morning, at 11.30 o'clock, in
the Episcopal Church, and will be conduc
ted by the Rt. Rev. Biohop Howe and oth?
er ministers. At the conclusion of the
services the remains will be laid to rest in
the Presbyterian Church-Yard. The
friends and acquaintances of tho deceased
are invited to attend the services.
Shot Himself Through tho Head.
Last Friday afternoon Mr. J. C. Spear?
man, who lived in Pendleton Township,
committed suicide by shooting himself in
the head. Mr- Spearman hud recently
been conducting a small business at Pen?
dleton, while his family lived on a farm
near Earle's Bridge, and he was well
known throughout that section. The an?
nouncement that he had committed eui
cide was, therefore, a shock to his friends
and neighbors.
Corouer Nance was notified and on Sat
urday held an inquest over the body.
The most important witnesses exumiued
by the Corouer were the eldest son and
daughter of the deceased, Mr. D. M
Spearman and Mies Nancy Spearman,
and from their sworn statements to the
jury we have secured the following facts:
For two or three days preceding Friday
the members of the family hau noticeu
that Mr. Spearman was greatly worried
about some matter, but said nothing
about it to them. He had been drinking
pretty freely during the several days, ano
on Thursday came home under the influ
euce of whiskey. He spent Friday morn?
ing in and around his house, and just be?
fore dinner went out into a field some dis?
tance from the- bouse. Not returning for
some time, Miss Nancy followed in the
direction which her father went out and
found him sitting down on the ground
She insisted that ho should come to the
house. He refused, but rcqussteel that
she go and brine, three of tho youngest
children to him. Miss Nancy immedi
diately brought the children* to him. In
the meantime Mr. D. M. Spearman went
to tho held and begged his lather to go to
the house. Ho repeated the visit to his
father, but could not induce him to leave
the field. Mr. D. M. Spearman went on
to his v?ork, and in a short time one of his
little brothers came aud told him his
father wanted to borrow a lead pencil.
Tho jjencil was sent to the father, who
did some writing with it. The children
begged the lather to go hack to the house
with them, but he again refused, and they
started home, leaving him in the field
alone. Before reaching the house they
heard the report of a pistol from the direc?
tion where they had left the father. Miss
Nancy and the children went backdown
into the field, and there they found their
lather in a prostrate condition, with a ter?
rible hole in his head and the pistol by his
side. He was not dead, but in an uncon
scious condition. As soon as several ot
the neighbors could be summoned, the
unfortunate man was carried to the house.
He lived several hours, but never regained
The following is a copy of a letter,
which was found in one of Mr. Spear
man's pockets, addressed to his son, D.
M. Spearman:

The jury of inquest returned a verdict
in accordance with the facts given above.
Mr. Spearman had always borne the
reputation of being an uprig'.t, honorable
man, and was highly es.cemed by his
neighbors. He leaves a wife and nine
children, who we learu are in an almost
destitute condition.

binatiou of mental faculties that are pain
tuily limited in their capacity, or rather
they are over-balauced?that is, the coarse,
inferior element predominates to such a
great extent, that we are prone to doubt
the existence of the finer sensibilities at
all; in consequence of all this we feel that
the unfortunate individual deserves pity
from us rather than blame. Our commu?
nication didn't receive a second thought
from us after wo forwarded it to the pa?
per, and wo hardly dared hope that it
would be read with any degree of interest
by any one else. It is, therefore, very
gratifying to us to know that it possessed
enough potency to elicit a reply. Truly
the "pen is mightier than the sword" (?)

I have beeu sitting here for some ten
minutes with my pen suspended over the
paper like somebody studying how to
make a right pretty Z, wishing that I had
time and space to make a brief note of the
many beautiful dwelling houses that
have been built in this Township this
At the beginning of the new year, 1892,
many a man will turn a new leaf, and
then proceed to blot it just as he alwaya
Nearly every farmer I talk with says
that he believes that the yield of cotton In
this section is off fully 50 per cent- this
yeur. I believe that if the people had sold
all of their cotton kst fall, the cotton that
we are now selling for six and seven cents
would have brought us ten and twelve
cents. Why, because all of this old cot?
ton that is here in the way would have
been worked up by the manufacturer and
shipped out of the country. It would not
have beeu here to make this short crop a
large one. There wasn't but about a half
of a crop of cotton made this year, and if
we had sold our old cotton lost fall, it
would have been as easy for us to get ten
cents a pound for our cotton as it is to get
six cents now. Everything is as lively as
we could expect, considering the low price
of cotton.
In looking over the above I aee that I
have used the word year a great deal.
Reader, how much cotton do you think
you will plant next planting time ? Some
peopie say that we can raise cotton and
buy corn choaper than we can raise corn,
but all of us don't believe that, and with?
out cotton takes a rise from what it is
now, we will raise our corn aud meat at
home altogether. At least those of us that
have tried to raise cotton aud buy our
corn aud meat will, for we have experi?
ence in that lino, know that if a man tries
it at tho present price of cotton he will
surely get left.
When I commenced writing I knew
that it wasn't very long until Christmas,
and I thought I would sny that I hellered
from all appearances, some of the young
people in this world who dou't live far
from somewhere, and are not strangers to
a good many that may read this, would
get married about that time, but when I
reflected that people were born with two
eyes, two ears and only one tongue, it
looked as if it wasn't in order that we
might see. and hear four times as much as
wo should say, so I will pass on.
I don't know, but I reckon there is
about one bale of yellow cotton to every
25 acres, that I j<uess the people will pick
out before they will nay they are- done.
Splosh! splatter! drip! drip! there
goes my new bottle of ink, and it took all
the ruouoy I made this year to pay my
debts, and I believe to my soul it would
take a whole wheel barrow full of rags to
to buy another bottle of ink like that. If
it hud not beeu for this new kind of a pen
I bought from that infernal book agent,
I wouldn't havo had the pleasure of sign?
ing my name. When I look at the broken
pieces of my now ink bottlo and think
about what a good thing I done when I
bought this new hanglet! writing pen, I
think that I will i-ign my name in full,
and so I b6iieve I will. I remain, a3 ever,
your humble servant,
