WATTS MAY BE.IMPEACIIED.
A Strong Bill of Indictment Brought
Against the Adjutant General.

precipitated fc fight between a battalion
of infantry and the students of the
South Carolina Cf llegfc by ordering the
troops to clear the diamond while tb
students were playinj a gtoe bl ball.
Charges were pferrfed against General
Watts t Governor Ellerbe by the col
tegfc authorities. He ordered a court of
injuiry to investigate the chargtB. The
court on the 24th completed its work
and reported' its findings and recom

cqutU in its findings, said:
"In taking- and rBtaininifir a Position

General Watts showed Beribus lack of
judgment and disregard for the rights

an assumption of authority that was
unwise, unnecessary and unwarrant

by the people, and hence not subject to
court martial, as in othar States. This
being the case, the court of inquiry
recommended that the Governor lay the

The court f urth.r recommended that

CORN, COTTON AND WHEAT.
The Weathci Bureau'. Report of tha
Crop Condition the Past Week.
The Weather Bureau in its report ol
crop conditions of the week ended July
-1st, says: Except over the central
Rocky Mountain region and in Califor
nia, where it is unseasonably cool, the
week ending June 21st has been gener
ally very favorable for the growth and
cultivation of crops. Portions of Mis
souri, Arkansas, southern Texas and
Florida, however, need rain.
Corn has had a good growth, all re
ports from the central valley indicating
a marked improvement. In the )ako
tas, however, the crop continues back
ward, with uneven stands, and in por
tions of the Southern States, where the
early planting is nearing maturity, rain
is needed. Corn is being laid by as far
North as the southern portions of Kan
sas and Missouri.
Cotton has made good growth during
the week gonerally throughout the cot
ton belt, the interior of Florida and
Southern Texas being the only sections
in which the crop has not ma le satis
factory progress. Ihe reports indicate
a marked improvement over the central
portion of the cotton belt and in north
Southward of the Northern boundary
of Tennessee, the bulk of the winter
wheat crop has been harvested, and
some threshing has been done in
North Carolina and Texas. Harvest
ing in Kansas is nearly completed and
will begin this week in Indiana, Ohio,
West Virginia and Maryland. In Ten
nessee the finest crop for many years is
now ia shock. The weather conditions
of the past week have been very favor
able to the crop.

vious years, are as follows:
Ordinary stamps, 3,444,167,000; news
paper stamps, 0,402,000; postage due

: As compared with the requirements
for the present year, these estimates
are an increase oi about 205,000,000 in

Report of the Proceedings front Day
to Dayi -SENATE.
Jitne 21st. The Senate made giant
strides on the tariff bill, covering fifty
six pages, and establishing, a record for
progress during thi3 tariff debate. The
last two schedules of the dutiable list,
covering paper and manufactured sun
dries, were completed, with the excep
tion of the paragraphs on hides, gloves,
coal and some lesser articles. , Early in
the day the wool and silk Schedules went
DVeh . with an agreement that wool
woiild be taken up oh the 22d. The to
bacco (schedule, and the internal reve
nue portions of the bill, as well as many
isolated paragraphs, passed over, re
main to be considered. The progress
today was so marked, however, that
there is a feeling that the end is not far
Jcne 22nd. In the Senate, after a
rather extended debate, the reduction
on the duty "of first-class wools was
agreed to at 10 cents per pound and on
second-class avooIs, 11 cents, which is
between the House and Senate rates in
each case. The rates on third-class
wools went over. A joint resolution
was agreed to appropriating $700,000
for the immediate repair of dry dock
No. 8, at the New York navy yard.
Jcne 23d. After a contest lasting
throughout the day.the Senate com
pleted the paragraphs of the wool
schedule relating to raw wool, and ad
vanced into the features relating to
manufactured woolen good. The day
Avas devoted largely to a discussion of
the eflect of tariff rates on the price of
wool, and the speeches were on tech
nical lines, in the main. Quay made a
strong effort to have the House ad
valorem rates on third-class wool
adopted, but he was defeated, 19 to 41.
The committee rates were then agreed
to, viz: 4 cents per pound on third-class
wool valued at 10 cents or less per
pound 7, and 7 cents per pound on
third-class wool valued at above 10 cents
per pound. The schedule was completed
up to paragraph 364, relating to cloths,
knit fabrics, etc.
June 24th. A stubborn contest over
the duties on manufactured woolen
goods occupied the attention of the
Senate. It was a day of constant roll
calls and cross-fire debate on the effect
of tho duties in advancing rates. Many
amendments were proposed to reduce
the rates, but these were rejected by
decisive majorities. Less than five
pages were disposed of during the day.
carrying tho Senate through paragraj h
370, to the first of the paragraphs relat
ing to carpets. DuriDg the dav Caf-
fery. of Louisville, spoke at -length
against the protective system and
severely arraigned those l)emocratic
Senators who had voted for duties on
wool and other raw materials. Resolu
tions of deep regret were passed on the
death of Representative Cooke of Illi
nois and a committee of five Senators
was named as a funeral escort.
June 2tii. The Senate completed
the wool schedule, the silk schedule
and tho tobacco schedule of the tariff
bill, and with this accomplished, the
tariff leaders had the satisfaction of
knowing that all schedules of the bill
and the free list had been gone over
once. There now remains only to go
through the bill a second time, passing
on the items passed over. These are
very numerous and important, includ
ing hides, gloves, coal, tea aud beer.
After that the internal revenue features
of tho bill will be all that remain. The
tobacco schedule went through with lit
tle friction after the committee had ad
vanced tlfe duty slightly on wrapper
and leaf tobacco.
.It se 26rii. An abrupt and startling
halt in the tariff debate occurred in the
Senate at 2:30 o'clock, when in the
midst of a passionate speech, Senator
1'ettigrew, of South Dakota, was
stricken Avith paralysis of the vocal
chord, which brought his vehement
speech to a close Avith a sentence
half uttered. The Senator was not
phjsical!y incapacitated, except in the
sudden loss of the poAver of speech.
He left the chamber soon afterward,
and was taken home by his friends.
The debate proceeded, but no further
advance in the tariff bill was made, and
this incident Jed to adjournment at 3
o'clock. The Senate started on its sec
ond passage through the bill, the pur
pose being to dispose of all the items
proviously passed over. The paragraphs
considered were in the chemical and
earthenware schedule, and failed to
elicit more than technical debates, ex
cept in the unfortunate instance termi
nating with Mr. I'ettigrew's affliction.
June 21st. The House Avas in ses
sion only a short time. During the
Ression a bill was adopted to approuri
ate $100, 000 for the repair of dry dock
Jo. y, at the JNew lork navy vard
Latimer (Uem.), of South Carolina,
asked unanimous consent to have con
sidered a bill declaring a State capable
of entirely controlling the liquor
traffic, but this Avas objected to by
htone (llep. ) of Pennsylvania, and the
House adjoured without action on the
June 24th. In the " House after the
reading of the journal, the Speaker an
nounced the reception of an invitation
from the President of the Belgian
Chamber of Deputies to the members
of the House to attend the mternation
al parliamentary conference in favor of
arbitratian which commences August
6th. Foss, of Illinois, in behalf of the
delegation, then announced the ead
news of the death of his colleague. Mr.
Cook. He gave notice that at some fu
ture time he would ask the House to
pay tribute to the character and public
services of Mr. Cook. The customary
resolutions were adopted and acorn
mittee to attend tha funeral was ap
pointed. Then as a further mark of
respect to the memory of the deceased,
the House adjourned until the 28th.

The Greenville Reflector says Henry

mond, Va. His father, John Wyatt,
came to Greenville from Richmond
some years before the war, and engaged
in work at the coach shops of James
Nelson, then located on the corner of
Pitt and Third streets. Finding that
he could get permanent worE, he sent
back to Richmond after his son Henry,
then a littlejboy about four years old.
The two went to live with a woman
known as Miss Cloudy, who had a
house on Pitt street, the place now
owned by Daniel Foreman's children.
Henry Wyatt grew up in Greenville
and was nearly grown when the war
came on. When companies . were be

one of them, but his father objected be
cause of his age. Young Wyatt then
ran away and went to Tarboro, where
he joined a company This is the

ProrA t Frets, Utica, N. It.
There Is no one better known or respected
in the village of Brookfleld, Madison Co.,
New York, than Mrs. John Fiflk, the wife of
an old realdcuf and veteran df ihe war of
the Itebllldn. ia April oi this year, Mrs:
tlsk lay at death's door from neuralgia and
heart disease, the family physician having
reedmmended her to settle all her worldly
affairs, as She was liable td be taken at any
minute, and Inquiring friends expected at
each visit to hear that she had passed away.
Bat Mrs. Fisk, to the surprise of her
neighbors and physlolaos, suddenly began
td mend, and now she Is as strong and
healthy a Woman Of her advanced age (76
years) as oan be found, and really does not
appear nearly as old as she is. The follow
ing Is her own story of how she was cured.
"I consider it Is a duty to myself and the
community to tell of my extraordinary re
covery from what was thought by my pby
sioians, my husband and friends to be a
fatal Illness. I had long been suffering
from neuralgia in its worst form, enduring
agonies that only those who have under
gone sttoh torments know, until my heart
became so affected funtlonally and or
ganically, that the doctor said I was liable
at any time to pass away. He had done all
in his power for me. and I thank him much
for his kindness and attention, and believe
him to be a good, faithful physician. I was
not disposed to die, however, if I could help
It, and he having done all he could, I felt
at liberty to use any other means that held
out a chance of life, and determined to try
a remedy that had been recommended by a
friend who had been at death's door from
rheumatism and heart disease, but who now
la In good health.
"Whatever doubt I may have had as to
this remedy's efficacy in a dissimilar dis
ease, to that from wbieh he had suffered,
was dispelled on reading In the Frets of a
case Identical with my own being cured,
with the name and address of the person
who had been so benefited. Bo my husband
who now was anxious that I should at once
take the treatment, purchased for me a box
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I took them
according to directions, and within a very
short time the pains began, to disappear,
my heart's actions became normal, and four
weeks ago I ceased taking them, as I am
entirely cured, and able to do my house
work as well as when I was a young woman.
"I had always, until I tried Dr. Williams
Pink Pills, looked with suspicion on all ad
vertised proprietary medicines, but now m.
ideas have undergone a wondrous change
in that direction, for under God's all wise
Providence, 'Pink rills have renovated
me, and apparently given me a new lease
"This is no secret in this locality, and I
hope this certificate may be the means of
other sufferers in distant places securing
the same benefits that I have received.
Pink Pills -are sold in boxes (never in

the public are cautioned against numerous
imitations sold in this shape) at 50 cents a

Triumphs in Surgery.
Cleansing of the wound itself was al
most a surgical heresy a few years ago.
Fouled bandages w ere the rule, and the
thicker and more abundant the dis
charges the more "laudable" they were
considered to be. Hence in the older
works on surgery the so-called "lauda
ble" pus was ns much a sigu of safety
as it is now of danger. Cleanliness of
instruments, now a prime considera
tion, was then entirely ignored. Often
times the same Instruments would be
used at different times upon the dead
as well as the living bpdy, and n cele
brated operator of that day was accus
tomed to hold his knife between his
teeth when his hands were temporarily
employed in the wound. If n cut heal
ed rapidly it was a rarity sufficiently
great to court fact. The former result
was rather an accident of cleanliness
than the deliberate acknowledgment of
what should have, been the rule. Con
sequently the most careful surgeons
those who possessed instinctive habits
of neatness and cleanliness were the

the moving spirit in formLng the combination
of the four loading manufacturers in this

Those who were handling the thousand and
one wheels the manufacturers were ashamed to
father "kicked." The profit on the cheap
wneeis was very large, rsux tney kickcu to no
purpose, and today a cyclist may ride a first
'lass guaranteed wheel at the price It has be

i-azors,"to sell." For this boon the public owes
the Liovell Arms Co. thanks. A rataloirue of

"Two, sir." To which he composedly
