' THE QUESTION OF BREAD. -O-; j A meeting, as the following will show, for j the purpose of suggesting a plan whereby I supplies can be obtained, sufficient to carry j the farmers, of Mechanicsville and Swimming j Pens neighborhoods, through until next fall, i was held at Mecbanicsville, to-day. The wis? dom of this step is unquestionable, asthecon ! dition of the country rendered by the drought, j has reduced the facts which have occasioned I this meeting, down to the one question I "how is the best way to get breid and meat j for nest year." The most successful farmers who have al? ways managed to have well-filled corn-houses are now actually compelled to buy every mill? ing of corn, and the condition of such as have heietofore not been so successful, and such as farmed under Hens, must be comparatively ranch worse. It is through no fault of the farmers that they are in this destitute condition, and it is j also a fact that many of the poorer class will J suffer if they do not obtain assistance, j Whether they can all obtain the help they j need, through merchants., is somewhat doubt ! ful, and we think that some action should be j taken by our members of the Legislature, to ! give timely succor to such as are really in i need and are deserving of assistance : MECHANICSVILLE, S.

Hemphill Dinkins. -o We announced Saturday that Major Dink? ins, State Fish Commissioner and Chief Civil Engineer of the New York, Texas and Mexi? can Railway company, had got one of his legs badly cruaed at the knee by a car on the Galveston, Huston and San Antonio road, while attempting to get on a train at Walker Station. As soon as the intelligence was telegraphed here, the company sent a special train to the relief of the Major. On the train were the company's physician, a nurse and Major I. C. Stafford, Major Dinkins' very warm and personal friend. It was found, however, upon reaching Walker Station, that the case was hopeless. The system of the sufferer was too much prostrated to admit of amputation, and death resulted in about twelve bours after the injury was received. Major Dinkins was a South Carolinian, but when quite a young man came to Texas in 1858. He was chief civil engineer of the Buffalo, Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railroad from the time of the organizaiion until the dissolution of that company, and has been ever since he reached Texas engaged by rail? road companies in locating lands and super? vising construction of road beds. At the time of bis death he was Chief Civil Engineer of the New York, Texas and Mexican, and also State Fish Commissioner, and his services in the latter capacity would have been re? quired in a few days to distribute through the State the German carp that the general government proposes to supply. As soon as the intelligence of the accident reached Austin, a sister of the Major and his family physician started to him by a special train, but did not get to him until he was dead. His wife lives in Austin and bas been for a long while in very poor health. It is feared that the shock of bis death may prove too severe for her feeble system. Deceased was respectfully and tenderly cared for. Nothing was omitted that loving friends or medical skill could do to save his life or relieve his suffering. Indeed, be seemed to suffer very little and spoke only of pain in the back about the region of the shoulders. With loving friends and weeping eyes bending over him, he died easily, uncomplaining^ and in the full possession of his faculties. An inquest was held, and a verdict ren? dered of death from being run over by the cars, but the injury was received while at? tempting to get on a moving train, and we understand that it was one of those misfor? tunes that railroad companies cannot foresee or provide against. The remains, accompanied by Major j Stafford. Miss Dinkins, the two surgeons and a deputation of Odd Fellows from Richmond, were brought to this city yesterday in a special train of the Sunset road, and were met here and accompanied to Austin last night, by a deputation of Odd Fellows from this city. Deceased leaves no children. Alleviation. CHARLESTON, S. C , Jan. 20, 188L n. H. Warner & Co. : Sirs-My wife's peculiar sufferings were completely alleviated by your Safe Kidney and Liver Cure. H. C.

The Lewis? ton (Me.) Gazette gives a flattering testimonial in favor of the South, as a manufacturing section, in the follow? ing : In the matter of dividends the Southern mills have the advantage. The G rangeville factory of South Caro? lina paid a dividend of 20 per cent, last year ; the Augusta mills, 15 per cent ; the Langley mills, 15 ; the Woodlawn and Lawrence, of North Carolina, 15, and so on. The July dividends of for? ty-five mills in Georgia average over 12 per ct. The Lewiston, Me., mills did not pay a cent of dividend. Water power is much cheaper South than in New England, and in many places it can be obtained for nothing. Labor is much cheaper, averaging $4.25 a week ?South, to ?10 per week North. The difference appears 13J per cent, in favor of the South.

Y. : Gentlemen-For twenty years I have suffer? ed more or les? from my bladder aod Kidneys. My business for many years had required me to" travel all over the southern states. Whilst going to Texas, last fall, I saw in a paper an advertisement of Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure. I bought a bottle, and io less than a week the improvement in my health was palpable. Since then, my general health has improved wonderfully, and I now enjoy a degree of health and strength, in every par- ! ticular, such as I had not boped it possible to enjoy again in this world-of which I am sat? isfied, under God's blessing, has been due to your remedy. 0k?\ C. OFFICE OF ORDINARY, MCSCOGEF Co.. \ COLUMBUS, Ga., Oct. 1, 1881. ' J ZT. H. Warner # Co., Rockester, K F. : Gentlemen : For eighteen months I suffered intensely with a disease of the kidneys and a torpid liver, and after trying every remedy that I could hear of, besides being under the treatment of some of our ablest physicians, I had about given up my case as hopelessly in? curable, when I was prevailed upon by my wife to try your Safe Kidney and Liver Cure. I confess that I had but little faith in its merits or efficacy ; but to my great joy and satisfaction, after I had commenced oa the second bottle, I continued the use of the med? icine until I became completely cured. Judge court of ordinary. Thousands of equally strong endorsements -inaoy of them it case where hope was aban? doned-have been voluntarily given, showing the remarkable power of Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure, in all disesaes of the kidneys, lirer and urinary organs. If any one who reads this bas any physical trouble, remem? ber the great danger of delay. GOOD COFFEE, Everybody wants it, but very few get it, <>ecause most people do not know how to select coffee, or it is spoiled in the roasting or making. To obviate these difficulties bas been our study. Thurber's package Coffees arc selected by an expert who un? derstands the art of blending various fla? vors. They aro roasted in the most perfect manner (it is impossible to roast well in ?mall quantities), then put in pound pack? ages (?TI the bean, not ground,) bearing our signature as a guarantee of genuineness, and each package contains the Thurber recipe for making good Coffee. We pack two kinds, Thurber's "No. 34," strong and pungeut, Thurber's "No. 41," mild and rich. One or the other will suit every taste. They have the three great points, good quality, honest quan? tity, rcaxanahle price. Ask your Grocer for Thurber'H roaMe? Coffee in pound pack? age*, "..Yo. 31" or "No. 41." Do tot be put off with any other kind-your own palate will Ml you what is best. Where persons desire it we also furnish the "IdsaV Coffee-pot, thc simplest, best and cheapest coffee-pot in existeneo. Grocers who sell our Coffee keep them. Ask for descriptive circular. Respectfully, ?fcc, H. K. & F. B. THURBER & CO., Importers, Wholesale Grocers and Coffee Roasters, New York. P.
