WATTS MAY BE.IMPEACIIED. A Strong Bill of Indictment Brought Against the Adjutant General. Adjtttanfc (General Watts, tor tlreSouVb. Carolina taailitia, oh the 28th of May, 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 mendations to the Governor. Th& cqutU in its findings, said: "In taking- and rBtaininifir a Position amidst a crowd of turbulent students at or near third base, thereby approaching upon tne lawiui territory of the base ball players, and uielessly. interfering with their game, when ample and suit able grounds were available near by General Watts showed Beribus lack of judgment and disregard for the rights of others. for the purpose of clearing the field was an assumption of authority that was unwise, unnecessary and unwarrant ed.' The Adjutant General of South Caro lina is a constitutional officer, elected 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 whole matter before the General As sembly for it to impeach General Watts. The court f urth.r recommended that "the Governor and coa.mLnder in chief publish a general order reprimanding General J.

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 ern Texts. 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. STAMP REQU1RE3IENTS. Number Needed Will Make One String 54,703 Miles Long.

FIFTYkFlFTlI CONGRESS 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 off. 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. HOUSE. 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 bill. 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 Wyatt Avas not a native of North Caro lina, but was born in the city of Rich 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 ing organized here he wanted to join 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 history of Henry Wyatt as told us by the people who knew him well. His father died at the Pitt county poor house some years ago. Winston correspondent, of the Char lotte Observer, says: "Mr. W. E. Youne, of Sutherlin, Va., aged about 40 years, died from convulsions, pro duced by strong drink in the office of his phvsician, Dr. Farrington, in this city. The deceased came to Winston and was employed by contractors to superintend the construction of a large dam across the Yadkin river. He had been drinking nearly ever since he ar rived. He owns the large Buffalo farm near Sutherlin, and is said to be the proprietor of the Star tobacco ware house in Danville. He told his physi cian that he took thirty drinks of whis key in forty minutes and would die. " State Treasurer Worth, so well known as an Allianceman, says regarding the Alliance shoe factory at Hillsboro, that it will not begin work until after the annual meeting of the State Alliance in August. It was decided two or three months ago to beuin jvdrk as soon as a suitable man could be secured to man age the plant. Such a man was not found. Charlotte Observer. The penitentiory authorities are now planting their newly purchased farm at Castle Haynes and will have 200 acres in corn, besides peas and peanuts, intending to raise all the supplies need ed there. As many convicts as are necessary will be employad to fully de velop the phosphate mines. The great piles of shell rock will be removed and sold. The Teachers' Assembly which met at Morehead City last week was a de cided success in every particular. Able addresses . were delivered by distin guished educators on various subjects. Prof. A. Graham, of Charlotte, was elected president, and Prof. W. H. Ragsdale, of Greenville, first vice president. Chas. J. Parker succeeded himself as secretary and treasurer. Some excellent wagons are now being made at the penitentiary and sent to the farms. This will be quite a branch of business there. So will the making of shoes, which in future will be made for all the convicts. Up to a few years ago many shoes were made there. In all cases where a registered whis key distillery is seized for irregulari ties, the storekeeper and gnager is in the future to be indicted jointly with the distiller, for it is held that there can be no fraud unless the storekeeper and guager is a party to it. The Southern Railway's great shops at Spencer, two miles from Salisbury, are to be largely increased in size and to the present 400 employees 200 are to be added. . .

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 of life. "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. "Clabixda Fisk." Pink Pills -are sold in boxes (never in loose form by the dozen or hundred, and the public are cautioned against numerous imitations sold in this shape) at 50 cents a box or six boxes for 2.50, and may be- had of all druggists, or direct by mall from Dr. Williams' Medicine Company. 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 most successful. Send for 1'iioe List!
