field, from the Edgefield Ohronicle,
written in Col. James T. Bacon's
inimitabie style will be read with
great interest by the people of the
State, throwing a side light on the
campaign that ciinnot fail to charm.
Edgefield's State campaign meet.
ing took place day before yester.
day and was really in many re
spects more of a social than a pol.
itical affair. Our court house was
crowded to excess and perhaps more
than half the pop)le were ladies.
Not only the ladius of our town
and vicinitv came out, but also
many from 10 and 12 miles away,
.cs1peciaily. from Trenton. Before
10 a. in. dozens of privileged old
men, heads of tribes, and dozens of
ease loving young men in wet shirts
had entrenched themselves in the
best places in the court house say,
Ug to themselves, "Soul and body
take thine ease." But they had
reckoned vainly. As fair .women
in white and lilac gowns and pink
roses began to pour in, the ease
loving mon were promptorily and
ignominiously routed.
Chairman Rainsford is an emi
nently courteous and chivalrous
man, and lie allowed no man to
sit while a woman stood. It was
a deligiitful scene. We always re,
joice to seo ease loving men routed.
"And they began with shameto
take the lower seats." The ladies
stuck manfully-we call attention
of Mrs. Virginia Durant Young to
the expression-until all the eight
governors had scattered pricelessl
pearls of wisdom. The only can
didate, however, who-got a bou

mastor of an ancient Phoecian feast
presenting flowers to the skeleton t

come." Like a great many othier b
little incidents of the morning it a
'was very funny. And there were
other cast iron skeletons. And a

did it like an elephant planting
their feet in a bad of roses. Gov.,.
Manning, we porceived that women
love him instinctively and at ab
glance, did rie to the heighth of f
saying "fair and noble women."
When the last governor, Herr "
Crafford, had gracefully subsided,
with tile wave of a turkey tail fan,
it was 1 o'clock, and the ladies c
rose in a body and modestly ro- u
tired, followed by the circus per
formners and the rabble. Aid then
followed more scenes that were
more social, social financi'al than i
political. The Episcopal ladies
