We have just received the pros.
pectus of a book by J. F. Caldwell
of Newberry, entitled "The Strang
er.'' It is publishled by the Neak
Publishing Company, New York and
Washington, postpaid, $1.50. It is i
story of the reconstruction. Mr
Caldwell is the author of a most ex
cellent ristory of McGowan's Brigade,
and is a careful and painstaking writ.
er. While we have not seen his new
book we are satisfied that it will givo
a true and vivid picture of the recon
str-tietiin, and the story w%ill be told
in a clear and vigorous style, which is
charaeteristic of Mr. Caldwell. We
(uote from the prospectus:
"It is i st.rong, a compelling book.
and an honest one. Mr. Caldwell is
a Southern man, and knows the con

of the legal profession in his native
State, South Carolina. and is recognir

She had to bear with ignorance, pre

generous woman. purity, peace and
culture in Margaret Mason's home.
As it was, so it is written.

We bog to say that we are receiving
daily communications stating the con.
dition of the cotton crop throughout
the cotton belt. We have just receiv

a whole, will not be more than an av

estly Appeal to the cotton growers to
hiol(d their cotton for ten cents: we
cannot afford to make it for less. If
we can iet concerted action of the
farmers thirtiuglhout the eotton belt for
thirty days. cotton will go to twelve
anal a half cents. A..e you willinlg to
do your part and not depend on the
other fellow ?i
Doany o your otton for
less than ten cents. Use all the in
flhence von have to preveit others
sellin for less than ten cents. Every
hale that is sold for less than ten
cents is used as a clnh with which to
heat down the price of the nn
sold cotton. We trist and believe
that the South Carolinians will stand
by the ten cents proposition.
After careful review and study of
the cotton situation, we are convine
ed that we are today in a better posi
tion to control the price of cotton than
we were a year ao. To do this we
must. ho~w r", have the cooperation
o'f tle people of the South.
Very respect fuly.
