if he should happen to be otherwise |

might possibly consent to act himself.
Tiie Game Law.?The game law ;
which inuy be of interest to some par- j
tics just now is as follows:
General Statutes, Section 1094: "It:
shall not be lawful for any person in 1
this State between the fifteenth day of j
March and the first day of October, in j
any year hereafter, to catch, kill or in-1
jure or to pursue with such intent, or j
to sell or expose for sale any wild tur- i
key, partridge, dove, woodchuck or ]
pheasant; and any person found gailtv j
thereof sha'l be fiued not ]ess than ten j
(10) dollars, or be imprisoned not less !
than ten days, which fine, if imposed, i
shall go one-half thereof to the in-1
former, the other half to the school;

Great Men of the South.?A correspondent
of the Cleveland Ledger,
writing of the birth-places of the illustrious
men of the South, suggests that
neither Kentucky nor Tennessee has !
ever produced a great man, and ac-;
credits Presidents Jackson and John-1
son to North Carolina. The latter is j
an error. Both Jackson and Johnson j
were natives of South Carolina:!
the former having been born in the}
Waxhaws, in Lancaster county,and the !
fVirmnr. we believe, was born and I
reared in Laurens. Both of the men j
were great, if measured by their
achievements in life; both arose from
the humblest to the proudest places bysheer
force of charactor; and both are
shininor examples of the possibilities of
o *. *
American citizenship. South Carolina
claims them as her sons and refuses to
be robbed of the legacy of pride that
springs from the lustre of their fame, j
A Bachelor Down South.?We j
clip the following from the Ocala Item: :
Mr. J. R. Harden, late of Winnsboro,
S. C., has accepted the position
of corresponding clerk in the banking
firm of E. W. Agnew & Co. Mr.
Harden is a fine specimen of South
Carolina's handsome yonng men, but
his gentlemanly' bearing would pass
him as an English-man instead of a
l~pon the question of personal appearance
the remarks of the Item are
in order. Mr. Harden was, when
here, duly elected by the B. P. U.
"town masher' more than a year ago.
But what he should have done since
leaving here to be taken for an Eng~
lisk-man is more than his friends can
imagine. The Item might as well
have flnng "Congressman" at him. It
is now in order for Mr. Harden to invite
the editor to "coffee and pistols,"
and if this is too strong for the digestion
of the man of the Item, our friend
should proceed to the "sanctum" like
cl 11 UU I a?lliUVlV auvi oirwy ,
up the floor with the "knight of the j
A Lawyer Left.?It is told of Col. |
George Johnstone, of the Newberry j
bar, that coming over here to attend
the recent term of the Court of Common
Pleas he decided at Alston that he
would, rather than ride across the
country, go around via Columbia.
Arriving at Ridgeway he stepped off
the car under the impression that, he
had reached this place. Not bGing of
a peculiarly inquisitive turn of inind 1
he said nothing and the train rolled '
on. Then commenced a search for the j
| court-house that was unnecessarily j
j protracted. Some say that it lasted |
two hoars and three-quarters, but that j
is perhaps an exaggeration. At any j
rate the Colonel concluded that some- j
thing was wrong, and accosting a citi-!
sen on I he suburbs of town he sub-!
mittcd his case without argument. He j

be necessary to go farther, and this he
proceeded at once to do. The fellow
who brought him up here across the
country was advised to say nothing
about the little circumstance, but he
has seen proper to make mention of it
Free Trade.?There is talk among
the young men iu town of agitating
the free trade issue in politics somewhat
after the manner iu which the
issue was fought in England a quarter
of a century ago, under the direction J
of the "Cobden Clubs"?which means'
that the politicians wiin?pcunprl!od to i
take hold of the qiie.vi.Mj It may be1
affirmed with certainty that free trade j
is now one of th." living issues in the
pontics oi tins country. v\ in me
Democratic party take hold of r? i
This question ina\ be settled by answering
the further inquiry?will the i
Democratic party prove itself a party j
of progress, a party with the good of j
the coutrv at heart, a party led by en-.
lightened statesmen, 01 will it show J
itself a mere aggregation of hungry
polititions, held together as Mr. Cal
houu would say by the "cohesive i
power of public plunder?'' Time
alone can throw light upon this in
quiry; but this much may be said?if j
the Democratic party would remain in '
power it must move.
Amendment Needed.?Section 2,022 ;
of the General Statutes, which provides
a scale by which recognizancas ,
entered into, before Trial Justices!
shall be regulated, could be im- j
proved bv amendment. Its practical I
working, as may be seen every day j
or two in the Trial Justices courts j
here, is a hardship to the accused. [
Subdivision first of the section pro- j
vides that-, "If the oficnse charged be '
punishable with fine, imprisonment, j
or either, the recognizance ot" the ae-1
cnsed shall not be tor less than two i
hundred doliar-y' winch i$ very weii,
but then conies this qualification, "ifj
the fine be specified or limited by j
Statute, it shall not be for less than j
the greatest extent of such fine," i
which is not well at all. Just to illus-1
trate, a party is brought before a Trial j
Justice, charged with selling a quart <>f!
peas, or a peck of corn, on whi::h a '
lien exists, without giving notice of j
such lien to the purchaser, he offers
bail and is informed by the Trial Justice
that the law requirs a bond of five
thousand dollars. "Well he may now
do one of three things, give the bail,
go to jail, or apply for a writ of habeas
corpus. In the last case of course he
must pay out some money, and in the
event that he has not got it to pay,
(and it is important to remember this)
the expense falls 0:1 the county. Clear
Iv there is something wrong in this
matter, and we commend the same to
attention of our legislators.
Thk Law as to Hiking out of Convicts.?The
Newberry Observer criticises
the Legislature with some surety
for having- changed the law as to hiring
out convicts; it attributes the change
to the friends of the Columbia canal,
who the Observer asserts wished to
concentrate all the labor possible on
this enterprise, and the Observer also |
indulges in an effort at sarcasm towards !
fK/* &(s\tra?* 7ao1amc lmmonitflrlftnc fn :
whose efforts it attributes the change.
"We have not seen the Act of the
Legislature referred to, and do not
know exactly what the change is, we
infer from the remarks of the Observe:'
that the law now prohibits the hiring
out of convicts, and hope that our
inference may be correct. The penitentiary
may be made self-sustaining,
J a ?AAntTtA^ U r\ 1? Arvf nntl-vin if ?>
dllU eYCi V wnvi^i uc tuuiiu ito
walls, and if this is not already the
case, it is simply because the "hiring
out" system has prevailed to the exclu>
sion of any effort at progress in this direction.
Again the Observer is wrong.
The "hiring out" system was opposed
by men who took no stock "in the
Columbia canal projcct; it was opposed
and denounced by men who can hear
all the odium that the spirit of controversy
may wring into "over zealous
humanitarians." It was opposed and
denounced because it had become a
monument of shame, which deserves to
be mentioned along with the Tewksbury
infamies of Massachusetts. Its
horrors need not be recited in detail, it
is sufficient to say that no wail that
ever reached civilization from the
Siberian mi hps was more nainful in its
pathos, than the cry which daily went
up to the nnanswering clouds from the
shackled convicts on the railroads and
Phosphate beds in South Carolina.
"We hope that the "hiring out" system
has gone to stay.
A Happy Gathering:.
Messrs. Editors: Some time has
elapsed since your correspondent had
the pleasure of attending a wedding,
when on Wednesday, the 25th ult.,
together with many friends, we had
the pleasure of witnessing the marriage
of Miss Rebecca L. Harrison and
Mr. R. B. Lewis, of Longtown, at the
residence of the bride's mother. Ac
three o'clock, the appointed hour, the
groom and bride, with their attendants,
Miss Pet Boyd and Mr. Geo. T.
Wildes, Miss Marv Harrison and Mr.
N. A. Peav, were ushered into the
room, where a goodly number of
friends were assembled to witness the
marriage ceremony, to be performed
by the Rev. C. G. Bradford, of Winnsboro.
With his accnstomed dignity
and ease this duty was soon performed
and the customary congratulations
were offered, after which we were
highly entertained by some excelleut
vocal ?vd instrumental music on the
piano until the setting of Sol reminded
ns that the dear ones at home were
anxiously awaiting our return, bo
bidding the happy conpie and friends
good-bye we retraced our steps homeward,
consoling ourself with the fact
that just twenty-five years ago we
passed through the same happy ordeal
our young friends have just passed
through, and regretting that we had
spent so much of our life in single j
wretchedness, and wondering why
such an organization as the B. P. U.
should exist. x.
ITEMS FROH LTLES'S FORD.
Messrs. Editors: Allow me to jot
down a few items from Broad River.
lour readers are weu aware 01 tne
damages, I suppose by this time, the
: oats and wheat crops have sustained
by the continuous hard freezes of late.
| Some farmers about here have sown
I the second time, and one a third time,
, their oats. Wheat also is. said to be
j materially injnred in locations around
| here. Oats sown by the 10th of next
| month will grow high enough to reap,
provided they get enough rain in May.
Our orrnin pvnort trade is so limited
now that the prior1, it is thought, will
not be much enhanced soon of corn,
flour and bacon. What our farmers
mostly need is the improvement of
their nearly exhausted soils. This can
only be done by rest, and appropriating
a larger area to small grain, fol*

farmers have done so to some extent,
and aver that their soil has been doubly
enriched by it in the short space o*
ten years. Why can't all farmers do
I notice quite an exodus of the negro
this winter from our State. I think if
half would leave us wc would have
enough left, unless their labor could
be more profitably utilized. Per
haps, if it were the case, more of our
white young men wouhl become farmers
and laborers?a much needed desideratum.
Not but the negro is as yet
the best laborer we can obtain, but
they are too populous for many reasons.
They work the railroads and
phosphate mines, help build houses,
etc., besides working on farms, but
our State is too small and the soil too
poor to sustain so many.
I heard an intelligent merchantfanner
not long since affirm that twothirds
of the lands (and I-suppose personal
property too) were under mortgage
in our State. If that be true,
which I doubt not, most of our landholders
now will ere long become
tenants, or laborers, or both. This
comes of the long standing credit svs
tcm so ruinous to our common prosperity.
The wealth of our once prosperous
State will soon concentrate in
the possession of a few. Deplorable
condition, indeed! I fear it is too late
for remedy. w. e.
Lyles's Ford, February 26, 1885.
Messrs. Editors: Please publish the
following takeu from the Southern
Cultivator. It may serve as a pointer.
It is a part of the occupation of my
life to set up such pointers, but if we
mav iudsre from the results, the majori
ty of the people must think that they
are as unreliable as many of the fingerboards
set up by the late board of
county commissioners. 11.
It is almost needless to tell the Cultivator
that we farmers of the South
have thousands of acres which were
once fertile fields, now idle and growing
up in weeds, briars and pines. If
we would double the amount of our
oats raised, sow five times as much
wheat as we do, and put ten acres in
pasture where we now have one, part
of these waste lands would be reclaimed,
yet only a small part. The
fact is we have too much land for our
population. We are land poor. Hence,
we must Dnug in people irom some
source, and we have decided to get
them mostly from other States.
In order to do this, I commcnced
about three years ago to write up the
soil, climate, etc., of West Alabama,
and as a result we now have families
from Michigan, Nebraska, New York,
Pennsylvania and South Carolina. The
head of each family brings from one
to six thousand dollars?a great help
in the present impoverished condition
of our country; but they bring something
better than money, in improved
imninmenfj?. advanced methods of
farming, an energy and love for the
soil which we do not possess to the
extent we ought. The Northern people
have not formed and all settled in
one section, but are scattered over the
county, and wherever they are the
signs "of improvement can be seen, and
lands have doubled in value.
Some persons think that we ought
' ' * -L J? I* 1 ^
not to lei mese nne janas pass out 01
oar hands, but keep them for our children,
as they are being sold for almost
nothing. I fear we would have to
keep them too long. Our young men,
instead of marrying and having homes
of their own, "and thus aiding us in
building up the country, go to town to
clerk, enter some profession and lead
an aimless and often worthless life.
We have good lands and we want to
see them in a fine state of cultivation,
and if we have not the people here to
occupy them, what better can we do
than "to send to other States and get
settlers? Convince me that there is
some better plan, and I will abandon
this one on which I have spent much

TIDINGS FROM TEXAS.
Huntsville, Texas, February 28.?
This has been a severe winter in Texas;
the heavy snow and sleet storms have
been bad on cattle and the loss great.
Yery little farm work going on yet,
but the farmers seem very anxious for
good weather, so they can get to planting.
Crops were poor here last year
ou account of the drought, and all
business is suffering from the effect.
Large crops of cotton will be planted,

good. It is w ell for the Eastern farmers
to note the progress that the Southwest
is making in growing cotton, and to
my mind its only a matter of time that
they will monopolize this business.
The natural advantages here are so
great that the older States cannot compete
with this section; this will bring
bout changes that 111 tbe end will be
to yonr advantage; as New England
found that she could not compete with
the rich lands of the "West she turned
her attention to manufacturing, and
look at her wealth to-day; so in time
the same will be true of South Carolina
that is so blessed with advantages
for such work. The people of your

nothing but necessity will ever change
them; you may as well form joint

Never lias my unusually select stock of
Men's, Boys' and Children's Clothing and
Furnishing Goods been so extensive, never
so low in price (quality and workmanship
considered) as now. My beautifully fitting
and custom-like clothing is worn by the
best dressed men and boys in the city, and
visitors to Columbia who may contemplate
purchasing clothing will find at this store
the most correct styles and the latest
novelties, all garments fitted to your form
before delivery, and every article sold is
warranted to be just exactly as represented.
The well-dressed young man who demands
something in accordance with his
own ideas of raiment, can always be sure
of finding the latest and most correct
styles of garments at this establishment
I make a special feature of suits for voung
men in four-button Cutaways, in Worsted
and Whipcord; also in Prince Alberts.
No oth? r house lias so complete a stock
of Gents' Underwear as I am offering to
my trade. Perhaps I should not know
this il those useful people, the shoppers,
(who go around comparing goods ana ouying
where they find the Dest) were not
continually telling me so. One very important
feature is that my stock is large
and new, another is that my prices are the
lowest anywhere. The proper way to find
this out is to call and see for yourselves.
NOTICE.?I have just added to my
stock of Shoes a line of Dancing Pumps
and Gents' Slippers. I am also prepared
to wholesale goods to merchants in the
State. I guarantee prices, and you can
save in your freights by purchasing from
the Emporium. I can seil cheaper tban
any jobbing bouse, as I purchase from
