"I had the pleasure of hearing two
recitals by Prof. Ford on tho 8th and
i>th of February.
? uHe Is superb as a roader and hu
morist. Not tho slightest irreverence
or coarseness is indulged in by him.
"His rendering of negro melodies
carried mo back to my happy boyhood
days in tho country, where J so often
hoard those happy, joyous songs of tho
negroes. I certainly enjoyed Prof.
Ford. Iiis every effort, whether of
pathos oi" humor, was successful."

But tlioro .is certainly no. time to

admit of delay.
?ENA't'OU IUBY'S intKAK.
Time will show w lie the r or not It
was.a break in tho slang souse of the

I think it quite probable, that the
triumvirateJsiJLeoatiuuo in business
tqgothovLor some time to come. - The
dissolution'will come when the occa
sion arrives; to objot a .successor-; to
Senator Irby., In my opinion, H will
coino i then, iunsmueh as a seat in tlio
U. S. Senate will not admit of cutting
in half.
i THE SENATOR'S DAKINC.
Senator Irby's lottor, it must he con
ceded, is a high testimonial to his pol
itical courage. It is not the habit Of
discontented Reformers to attack the
ox-Governor. When Mr. McLaurin has
dritlci'/.ed him it has been In the mildest
gentlest manner conceivable as though
it wero "moro In sorrow than in
anger." Hut Senator Irby while he
Says' nothing that derogates from Capt
Tillman as a man of truth and sinceri
ty says moro and worse things. Ao
cording to vho Senator, Tillman Has
been rounded up and operated upon by
the vilest of the vile, weak Consorva*
fives. According to tho Sonator, Joe
Barnwell and CaV Homphill havo made
ridiculous little fools of Tillman and
Evnns,?tho Senator questions if Evans
has not been bamboo/led ?and after
all the two mighty leaders of Reform
aro no matches for the astute presti
glators of Charleston, It is a dread
ful accusation tojffiako after alt thoso
years,?that thefgamest of tho gamo
and the kcenostylLJJiP keen, having
been into tho "ml
?^U' "' "'-'?' liianki. Dot?
without the shadow of a doubt
distinguished Reformer to marsha
a company of arguments going to,
show that Tillman is sometimes just
such a fool as other men are capable of
proving thetnsoives.
HOW IT WILL END.
1 think that Senator Irby will bo able
to inspire Capt. Tillman with genuine
"sorrow that ho wandered from bis
own lire-side" and that Tillman will re
pent in sack-cloth and ashes. Irby
will not back down,?but Tillman has
backed before many a time and it will
come natural to him. As for Evans,
that remark that be "lied the State"
in tho time of need was too vitriolic;
not to bite'deep but there is no reason
why a truce should not be patched up.
Some men never forgive especially
when ci.rcuniStap.CC9 are of a kind to
force them into rivalry much as they
might wish to shun it.
, it will be observed tbat Congressman
Staanyarno Wilson while abstaining
from Irby's salty expressions bolsters
tho hitters position. Wilson is by odds
u smarter politician than any of thorn,
smarter than Irby, Evans and Till
man with their beads altogether.
So Laurens is to have a cotton mill.
Good.
Eor months and years, long yours of
waiting, Till: AiWEUTtsEK has deluged
Laurens with factory talk. lias dinned
and howled and shrieked it into your
ears. And The ApVERTISEK never
abandoned the notion that Laurens
would have a mill at some time or oth
er. Whou you have solid, sensible,
capable business men to begin with it
is no risky ta.-k to prophesy tbat a town
will do something for itself.
News papers do not build factories.

In the general law of 1890 there
is a section, 1013, making it the
