Oar pressman went over with the crowd

Farming news is all good?of course we
mean where crops have been worked. We
can not expect good crops without good
work. But crops are good, very good. In
the neighborhood of Capt. McFaddin's, whose
corn we bragged on last week, are other'
fields almost as good. An old farmer who
has grown as fine crops as Sumter has ever
bad tells us that be never saw corn grow as
well. We saw a field last week cultivated by
our young friend T. Haseli Dick, with the
stalks seven feet high, and a color as rich as
tbe river swamp can give. Mr. R. M. Cooper
who uses brains as well as fertilizers to farm
ing has a 40 acre field, among others, which
a neighbor says will make 35 bushels to the
acre if the seasons allow it to make anything.
Hr. W. M. Kirby has an oat field where the
oats are shoulder high, and so thick that one
bas to follow tbe water furrows in getting
across the field. In a hurried visit to Salem
last-week we found the farmers busy with
reaper and mower and the air was redolent
with tbeodr.rof freshly cut oats. We saw
some cotton in Mayesville that was superfine,
.and they say we did not see the best. ?hr

Crushed to Death.
Mr. J. J. Rowland, one of the most promi
nent business men in Lynchburg was almost
instantly killed last Wednesday evening. He
was riding with his brother on the front of
his tram engine, when he saw a defective rail
in front and endeavored t? jump off but slip
ped and fell under the wheels where he was
crushed to death. Mr, Rowland's death is a
severe loss not only to his family, but to the
entire community. He carried on a heavy
business and was running the largest Saw
Mill in the State, employing very many hands,
a&of whom will be thrown ont of employ
ment. He was a native of Henderson, N. C,
and moved to Lynchburg in 1880, where he
was telegraph operator and S. R. agent. He
leaves a wife and one child.
A colored child in the lower portion of
Mayesville Township died last Wednesday
evening under somewhat suspicious circum
stances, many of the neighbors being conT
Tinced that its death resulted from a blow
accidentally given it by its father while hav
ing a festicnff with the mother. Theevidence
before the Coroner's jury left no donbt of the
blow being given, but a careful examination
by the physician, Dr. L. G. Corbett, failed to
show that it resulted in the death of the
child. Hence the verdict was that the child
died from natural causes.
What a magnificent country do those people
have over in Salem, and what a magnificent
people claim the country. We doubt if any
place in the State can boast of a more refined
and generous .hospitality, or have a more
substantial basis upon which to found that
hospitality. In passing through many sec
tions of the State, which in ante bellum days
were the abode of wealth and plenty, we see sic
transit written over each rjL?nedJaome and
desolatefieldj^aTnot-so with Salem. Ex
Jrisits motto. Fertile fields surround
; ing delightful homes tell of peace and plenty,
and. fortunate is the wayfarer who falls into
the hospitable hands of its people.
Friday was a red letter day with the Sum
ter colored Fire Companies. The "Stars" of
Georgetown with their friends came to Som

boys Siet them at the Depot and H. J. Max
well delivered an address of welcome, in
behalf of the Fire Companies. They after
wards assembled a the rear of the Court
House and listened to an address from Inten
dant Moise, and after a response from R. B.
Anderson, Secretary of the Star Company,
the formalities ended and the visitors scattered
over town to enjoy themselves.. The Plant
ers' Ware House was used for a dining hall,
and a pleasant day was spent by the visiting
6remen who left for home that night.
.Meeting of the B. and L. ?.
According to announcement, the paid up
subscribers to the Building and Loan Asso
ciation met last night in the Music Hall, and
the meeting was organized by electing Mr. W.
H.Cuttino Chairman, and Mr. . E. Richard
son Secretary. The committee on subscrip
tions reported 704 shares as already taken and
paid for, and upon a roll call, more than 600
were represented by proxy and in person.
The Committee on Constitution and By
Laws made their report which embraced a
very complete Constitution, which was adopt
ed after some unimportant verbal changes.
The next business was the election of offi
cers, resulting in the unanimous choice of Mr.
W. H. Cattino for President, and Dr. A. J.
China for Vice President. The following
stockholders were then ?lected Directors:
Altamont Moses, C. E. Bartlett, M. Moise, H.
Harby, R. A. Brand, R. P. Monagban and
R. M. Wallace
Tbe President and Vice President are ez
o?cio members of the Board of Directors, and
this Board is charged with the duty of elect
ing a Secretary and Treasurer at its first
Mason's Cotton Harvester.
We made a visit yesterday to the headquar
ters of Sumter's world-renowned inventor, to
find out what we could, in order to post the
readers of the Watchman and Southron as to
the progress of hi3 much talked of machines.
We found him and several other men bard at
work at lathe, placiog machine, drill and
other improved labor-saving implements, all
driven by a superb new engine ; and the in
ventor was in one of his most agreeable and
talkative moods ; but we really succeeded in
getting very little for publication, except that
he has made a number of Important changes
and improvements in the Cotton Harvester,
and is bo3y at work upon it. It will be sev
eral weeks yet, however, before he will be
ready to "say anything." From what we
saw and learned we will remark that we are
satisfied that the "Harvester of this year will
be not only an improvement upon the one of
last year; but ia several respects a different
machine, and much more compact.
He has, employed in the shop, besides bis
brother Richard, and Mr. Mortimer who was
here last year, Mr. Geo. . Beale, an expert

Cylinder Gia, Mr. Mason stated that he

being devoted eotirely to the Harvester.

that fact known.
Smithville, S. C, June 6, 1885.
Mr. Editor : After the wet season we have
had a week of fine weather for grass-killing.
Some of our farmers I hear are heavily in
evolved in the grass. It is strange that our
planters do not adopt the policy of making
their cotton on a small space of land, and
thereby getting rid. of this terrible strain on
man and beast by tending a territory and
making nothing scarcely on it. But the
name of being called a "big planter," seems
to be the motive of big planting. "He who
makes a bale of cotton to the acre does more
for the good of agriculture than be who makes
it on five acres." So says one of our wisest
I bear no general complaint about labor,
but nightly religions meetings seriously inter
fere with work. Almost every night there is
a meeting on some place near here, and they
arejreneral?y well attended and kept up until
a late hour. Now this unfits the negro for
good work next day, and the planter is the
loser thereby. It does no good to threaten
tbem with the law for it has about lost its
terrors for them. They will tell you, "if you
jail me I will be fed and do nothing," for no
disgrace attaches to being in jail for anything,
but it is quite an honor to be a jail-bird.
Now, a stop can be put to this state of affairs
in a large measure by establishing the whip
ping post, which I bave long wanted done. I
am glad our grand jury has suggested it, and
hope our representatives will work to estab
lish it at the next session of the legislature..
It will do more good than any law that can
be passed to break up petty crimes. Lick
tbem for all jailable offences, and you will see
a change and not before. The negro is afraid
of the lash, and ifit runs him out of the State
let him go.
fOur correspondent should not have ex
cluded white jail-birds from the prospective
benefits of the whipping post. Give it to both
Farm work generally is more advanced of
late years than it used to be. Some people
have laid by their corn, and ploughed and
hoed their cotton three times and yet they say
they are way behind in work. The Ameri
can people are very restless and are getting
more so every year.
I see some people are -making a to-do be
cause Wyatt Aikeo did not get to be Commis
sioner of Agriculture. Aikeo is ?n over
rated man, and is a fence-straddler in politics
just like some of our- Sumter County politi
cians. He went North a few years ago and
when be got back, said the Democrats could
never elect a President, and conld not carry
New York. Ob, no 1 never carry that State
for a Democratic presidential candidate. He
wanted a compromise ticket like Grant and
Bayardt he came near being thrown overboard
in his own District for his cranky notions.
Now, I expect the President knows all this
and_did not^anf such a man for f.n office^
first-cousin to a Cabinet one, and besides
South Carolina is always safe under the party
lash, while Missouri is more nearly divided
between the two parties, is a large Western
State and needs representation at Washing
ton. Coleman will make a very good Com
missioner, no doubt. The President is a good
politician and knows which side of the bread
it is best to butter for his party when he is
not imposed on by 'others in making ap
Your correspondent from Mann ville, "Nat,"
(I don't mean a "6") seems to have misun
derstood your editorial on the Blackville
meeting about Morgan. Now, I think that
editorial was very clear as to your meaning
und easily understood by any thinking mind,
and I fail to see anything remarkable about
it. Here is a similar case : It is said the
business men of Charleston want Walker for
Collector, while Senator Butler is opposed to
bis appointment, making a personal matter
of it. In this, Senator Butler is decidedly
wrong. He is a Uuited States Senator and
I should be impartial in all be does when act
j in? in a public capacity. Now, who is the
proper judge of a Collector for Charleston, the
people i^re, or Senator Butler? Any sane
man wiil tell you the people of Charleston.
Then Senator Butler is wrong in opposing
Walker. Now because Butler is condemned
I for this act do we condemn him for all his acts
in the past ? We condemn this act without
impeaching the patriotism or other acts of the
man. Here is a difference that is plain to be
seen. Who is this man Morgan any way ?
I never heard of him until beard of bis ap
pointment. Has he been here all the a?rk
days of the old State working for her re
demption from radicalism ? No. Then what
right has he to represent her? None what
ever, but like a great many men, he has come
forward to enjoy the hard-earned fruits of
other peoples' labor and drink their share of
the public pap. Now Dawson knew that
Morgan had no right to represent the people
ofSoutb Carolina in his appointment, espe
cially when so many of our own citizens who
are sound to the core, deserve the appoint
ment. In urging the appointment of Morgan
on personal grounds, especially when noth
ing is shown that be has done for the good
of the State, was wrong in Dawson, and he
should be condemned for this one act.
I beard a man say be had cotton bolls as
large as an acorn, but believe he told a ?. .
Crops are growing finely?grass ditto.
With good seasons most of our people will
make provisions and some to spare, with the
possible exception of Mr. Washington Haw
kins. It is said he dreamed last February
that he pianted a big cotton crop, and made
a fortune, and bad nothing to do the balance
of his days but calculate like Secretary Man
ning, what to do with his money, and under
the inspiration of that dream be planted a big
cotton crop. However, if he does not suc
ceed it will not be for the want of close atten
tion and nice culture. News is scarce unless
I manufacture some. QUI VIVE.

While lookicg at some apple trees this

tween them and men.- The good tree with its
vitality in a great degree exhausted by its
burden of fruit, its boughs bruised and broken
because of that fruit, compares unfavorably
in appearance with the worthless tree which
unbruised and unborken holds aloft its head
with unblushing affrontery, and just so with
men. While an honest life may be burdened
and broken by the shafts of envy, and the
kicks of evil fortuue, the man of ill-repute
smiles serenely over his success in life.

a cruel slander. Wrong, all wrong ! Stop

Cure for Piles.
Piles are frequently preceded by a sense of
weight in the back, loins and lower part of
the abdomen, causing the patient to suppose
he has some affection of tbe kidneys or neigh
boring organs. At times, symptoms of iodi
gestion are present, flatulency, uneasiness of
the stomach, etc. A moisture, like perspira
tion, producing a very disagreeable itching,
after getting warm, is a common attendant.
! Blind, Bleeding and Itching Piles yield at
once to the application of Dr. Bosanko's Pile
I Remedy, which acts directly upon the parts
j affected, absorbing tbe Tumors, allaying tbe
I intense itching, and effecting a permanent cure.

REM BERT'S, S. C, June 2, 1885.
JVr. Editor: As the weather is so excessively
warm and cannot stay in the field, I will let
yon hear from this section again.
Crops are still "flourishing." We have
been having for the last week an excessive
amount of rain-fall, and the grass is progress
ing finely. If the farmers don't "be up and
doing" they will make (instead of the fine
crops they anticipated) enough hay to suppli
tile country. Oats are rapidly ripening, and
will soon be ready for the blade.
Mr. A. K. Sanders has been re-elected cap
tain of the Gamecock Base Ball club, and they
will have a contest with their rivals, "The
Providence Fellows," next Saturday week.
Capt. D. E. Keels and wife are visiting rela
tions in this section. We hope the Captnin
will come again soon. His presence recalls
"His Honor," Judge Marion Sanders was in
this community a few days ago trying to
arrest one of bis prisoners that escaped from
jail in January, last.
Mr. R. F. Hoyt. of yonr town, has also
paid ns a visit recently. Mr. Hoyt is selling
a cultivator which surpasses anything of the
kind that I bave ever seen. Farmers ! it will
pay you to invest in oue of Mr. H.'s ma
chines. They are very cheap, and I dare say
the amount of labor saved by one will'doubly
repay you for the small amount you would
expend in purchasing one.
The people of this section are looking for
ward to a pic nie which is to take place in
July, with exceeding pleasure. You are invi
ted to be present on that occasion.
The B. K. and S. Academy, which I spoke
of in my last, will close on 20th of June.
