whose court records show as few ;
divorces as North Carolina." South [
Carolina is a State where no divorce
records are shown. She is the only
State ihat has no divorce law.

As showing the vast importance of
agriculture to the prosperity of the
country, an analysis of our export
trade for the last fiscal year gives
seventy-five per cent, as agricultural
products against twenty per cent, of
manufactured articles. Unless the
farmers prosper there can be no permanent
prosperity for the country.

mons amount of pension money paid f
by the government is continually in- J
creasing1 as the war recedes into the
past may be found in the fact that
reports are constantly reaching the
United States Pension OSice from different
parts of the country of men in
perfect health illegally drawing pensions.
To" the question by a Philadelphia
Republican paper, "What keeps the
South solid?" the Chicago Times
makes a pretty close guess, when it
says, "The quickest way to find.out
is to listen to Foraker, Fairchild, Tattle,
Clarkson, and other partisans of
their kind," and to see them endorsed
by a majority 'of the party which
dominates in several of the Northern
States. The answer is easy.
General Black, Commissioner of
Pensions, has just issued a report from
that office. The amounts paid was a
large increase over previous years and
is still increasing. It seems as if ihe
nnmherof riensioners will never ccase
as new names are added daily. Since
1S61 076,948 claims have been allowed.

It becomes plainer and plainer

The Daily Sun has a dispatch from
Kingstree, giving an account of what
came near being a serious riot between
the whites and blacks of that place
owing to incendiary talk among * the
negroes by the notorious Radical politician
Swails. Eight wagons of armed
negroes came into the town bent on a
fight, but the whites, by their coolness
and determination, prevented a riot.

The committee appointed at the
Extradition Conference recently held

of the bill are drawn up so that

It is just possible that the Demo
ciatic difficulty of what to do with the
surplus revenue may be somewhat
simplified by the steady growth of
anti-protectionist feeling in the Northwest.
Republicans in that part of the
country are becoming more and more
impressed with the fact that the tarifF
is to a large extent a tax upon production,
and thai the great agricultural
products of the country bear a disproportionately
large share of this
harden. Minnesota has remained
Rennblican bv a narrow majority only
because the party has thrown over its
high tariff principles in that State,
a:icl the instinct of self-preservation
will probably drive an increasing
number of members of Congress from
the Northwest to support any reason- j
able plan of tariff redaction which the 1
Democrats may be able to agree on.
Whether there will be enough of these
to offset the secession of the Randall
men remains an open question.
What Shall We i>o?
The protectionist journals advocate |
as the best way to reduce the surplus
?t'?e abolition of the tax-on whiskey
and tobacco. Whiskey and" tobacco
are not necessary to any man's life.
No man is bound to use them, and
only those who do use them pay the
laxes, consequently wnuu iuu wia. ao i
retained 011 these luxuries only tho.c* I
who indulge in them sutler the burden.
Bui -all men, women and children
have to be fed, clothed and sheltered,
and to place a high protective
tariff on wool, iron, coal and lumber,
is nothing more than placing a grievous
tax upon the very necessaries of
life. The advocates of revenue reform
desire to lessen the burden of
fftvafinn hv rwlncincr fhft taxPS Oil
those articles which all are bound to
consume, and to retain those on articles
of luxurious consumption. This
is how the matter stands?free whiskey
and tobacco or dear food and
clothing. "Which shall we have?
We cannot believe that the railroad
companies are entirely free from criminal
neglect in all the railroad disasters
we have at present. The first
thiug that greet? the eye in your daily
paper iu head lines is, "Pe:ils of the
Rail,*' "Two Passenger Trains Collide,"
-.'Killed and Wounded," and
you find out presently that the train
dispatcher didn't do as he ought, or
the bridge inspector failed to examine
the rotten bridges along the line, or
somebody else didn't do something he
ought to have done. We fail to notice
anything about any train dispatcher or
bridge inspector or anybody else being
hung for their neglect. Maybe if that
remedy was tx*icd once ox- twice we
wouid not have such an epidemic of j
disasters as at present. All summer
the rotten bridge lias been doing the
work alone, but the season is fast approaching
now when the coal stove
will also take a hand in the destruction.
The rotten bridge and coal
stove both can be done away with, and
unless they arc the officers should be
held liable for deaths caused by them.

business to come to it. Trade must <

of Wiunsboro possess a large amount <
of individual enterprise and energy i
and offer as good inducements as in I
their individual capacity as possible, 1
still we think much more good could j
be accomplished if they would unite i
the efforts. For this purpose we sug- ]
gcst a Board of Trade, composed of 1
the prominent, progressive, energetic i
merchants of our town. Such a I
Board could do much good in secur- ]

Foraker and His Snub. ,
At the general handshaking between 1
the President and hi* wife and the :
people during the recent celebration
: in Philadelphia Mrs. Cleveland merely
bowed to Governor Foraker without
shaking his hand. If there was anything
to be proud of in receiving a
snub we can't see it, but Foraker fairly
gloats over the matter, and is re- i
ported to have said that he "was glad
i it occurred. He wants everybody to
know it." Foraker Is nursing a little 1
Vice-Presidential boom and wants to
keep himself before the public as
much as possible, even if he has to
sret into all sorts of unsavory scandals
to advertise himself. It is a small
matter, it seems to us. The Charlotte
Hornet, however, condemns Mrs.
Cleveland from a point of social propriety,
and looking at it from a Democratic
standpoint, the Hornet thinks
it "unwise and unfortunate." What :
a snubbing of any one by Mrs. Cleveland
can have to do with the Democratic
party we can't see. Mrs. Cleveland
can shake hands with whom she (
pleases. If the Hornet thinks any- !
body will leave the Democratic party
because Mrs. Cleveland refused to
shake with Foraker, let them go, and '
stay out until they learn a little sense.
Exhibit Our Kcsourcos.
Wc believe it would be a good plan
for our people to systematically exhibit
our resources at the State Fair.
We have no exhibition of any kind of
our own where people can see really
what we can do in industrial progress.
Some of the best advertised States at
expositions throughout the country ,
are those that make a tasty dispiav of
their agricultural resources. These
exhibits are arranged in such a handsome
way that they immediately catch
the eye of the on-looker, and it is the
best sort of advertising. "VVe have as
fine an agricultural country as can be
found in the State, and we are sure
that if our productions were adequately
displayed that they would induce
outsiders to give our section some
consideration and might possibly induce
some desirable iinraigiant to settle
in our midst. At any rate a good
exhibition of our agricultural products,
such as corn, oats, wheat, millet
and other things, together with the
blooded cattle and horses, which are
| found in the county, could possibly do 1
no harm and would entail little trouble
on those exhibiting them. The
farmers are an organized body in the
county and we think they could take
this matter in hand and carry it
through. We don't know whether
such work is exactly in their line or i
not, but we throw out the suggestion
to them. The co-operation of merchants
and others outside of the movement
we think could be readily ob- i
tained. Let us try it once'any way,
and if we can make a successful exhibit
at our State Fair it will be an
easy matter to seek larger fields for

judicious advertising in this way above
all things. Somebody has to make the
start, and we see no reason why Fairfield
cannot start the movement.
Call for a Convention.

"Moses," has issued his manifesto to

which is so necessary to remedy governmental

two years he has persistently discussed
the governmental abuses which his 3

Proposed Preliminary Campaign.
The Laurens Advertiser recently
nade a suggestion, editorially, that
candidates for State offices should canrass
the State before the nominating
convention met. and thus bring the
choice of officex-s directly from the
people. This would be too much, we
;hink. Already most of the counties
nave primary elections for representa;ives
in the Legislature and county
officers. Then there must be a con
mention to send delegates to the State
Convention, after which comes the
This country is cursed with too many
elections and campaigns now, without
idding another. i?very campaign
brings with it a needless amount of
;ime, expense and labor, together with
in amount ot excitement which well
nigh paralyzes business. The present
plan is good enough. Long before
the convention meets the opinions and
records of different candidates are
thoroughly ventilated in the newspapers
and discussed among the people. |
A.s much of the policy of a candidate
is known, iu the present way, as if
?ach candidate would make a tour of
Lhe State. The charge that there is a
political apathy among the people we
think is not founded. It i9 not so in
our experience. Such matters are
thoroughly talked about, and *;uch
men as represent the views of the
people are sent to the State Convention.
We have too much conjldence
in the integrity and wisdom ot the
people of Soutn Carolina to aeneve
that they would send men to the convention
who could be bribed or juggled
into voting for any candidate
whose record is not clean. This has
beea our experience so far, and we
see no reason to believe that this state
State of affairs will be changed. The
issues in the State, as the Agricultural
College, for instance, are discussed
from the stump by candidates for the
Legislature before the primary election.
These are the proper men to
discuss these subjects, for they are
the men in the end who make the
laws, and not the State officers. The
latter only execute the laws as made
for them, and it is not necessary for
them to go about telling what their
policy will be if elected, for in all important
questions their policy will be
exactly the will of the people as expressed
by the legislative branch of
the government. We therefore think
no good would be accomplished by the
How the Tariff Works.
Prof. R. Means Davis has an article
in the "Monthly Report of the Department
of Agriculture" on the
working of the tariff as it effects the
farmers of the State. It is the clearest
and simplest statement of the facts.
Speaking of the decline in the price of
cotton, Mr. Davis says:
The steady decline in the price of
cotton, while not exclusively due to
the competition of the Southwestern
States and of foreign conntries, is so
largely dependent on this causerthai
the farmers of South Carolina tnust
face the serious question how, on impoverished
lauds, they cau still make
a living by raising this staple.
It is plain that under existing circumstances
the price does not pay.
Steps must be taken?
1. To secure a better price if possible:
2. To diminish the cost of production
of cotton, and to diminish the
cost of subsistence. Thus, without
lowering the standard of living, which
no people should do, farmers maysecure
the same comforts and necessaries
by the expenditure of less
money?so that- the smaller income
derived from the sale of their crops
may still pay for the articles of concumption
they must purchase. It is
not the money price of cotton that is I
important, but the value of cotton in
exchange for other commodities. If a
pound of cotton will bay a yard of
lrmtrrinfh. or a nound of sosrar. or a
w"w ?7 " ? r?
yard of bagging, or a coffee-pot, it
makes no difference whether the price
of each is eight cents or ten. lint if
each of these costs ten cents while
cotton sells for eight, the fanner thus
loses two cents in every pound of
Why cannot he raise the price of
Because the market price of cotton
is regulated in the free ports of England.
Anybody from any part of the
world can send a bale of cotton and

competition with everybody else.
That price is regulated by the world's
demand and supply, and the farmers
of Souch Carolina form too small a
part of the farmers of the world to
affect the result. Moreover, cotton
farmers, as a general thing, have to
sell just as soon as they can get their
crop ginned and packed. They cannot
form a pool to corner the market;
they mast take what they can get in a
free market. This is all right It is
ihe natural law of trade. But when
the farmer goes to Liverpool and sells
his cotton in open market, and then (
buys his longcloth and bagging and
sugar and coffee-pot in open market
and sets out for home, as soon as he
reaches his native land, and, before
touching his foot on shore, he is met
by a fellow-citizen, an officer of his
own government, who demands a certain
sum of money from him for the
privilege of bringing them in. This
is just the same thing as if he had cut
off a few inches of the longcloth or

A Sick Man's Wife Disregards the Druqqist's
Advice and So Saves the Life of
I nm n wood carver by trade and it is
out of my Ji:;c to write letters; but ray
wife thoughs it was no more than ri^ht
that I should let you know what your
remedy has done for me, and I think
I live in East 157th street, west of
Third avenue. : !::.ve lived there for
about tweu; . < v-ars. where I own
real estate. Vt; .?> i-he time I am about
to mention 1 ::a i been a strong, "well
man. There was always more or less
malaria in the neighborhood, but I had
not person:-.]!" snut-ivd from it. It was
in 1S80 I had my ar-t attack. It came
on as such attack.- commonly do, with,
headaches. los> <>f a;:p;-titc and ambition,
chilly -i i:> i'.i ii:s with .-light fever
afterwards, a d;>;? ?.-.t;on to yawn and
stretch, and so forth- I was employed
at that time :it Kiilians & Brothers,
furniture manufacturers, in West 32(1
street. 1 hoped the attack would wear
off, but as it didn't I consulted a wellknown
and able physician in Morris-,
ania, who gave me q inineaud told me
what to do. I can sum up the lirst four
and a half or live years of my experience
in few words. Occasionally I
was laid up for a day or two, but on
the whole I stuck to my work. 1 kept
taking quinine, in larger doses from
year to year, and ke;>t on get ting weaker
and worse, slowly but surely, all the
time. My trouble was now well dofined
and i;.? symptoms were steady and
regular. I i.:. i dumb ague lit its "worst
form, ami it was grinding me dowu in
spite of all that I could lio or the doctors
could do. It held me ii: a grip like
fire in 11 luirniv;'!roui mine. The poison
had gone all through and ;,ver me and
nothing was able to touch it. I was
fast losing llt-sh and strength, and about
March. 18S-1. 1 knoi-kcd ofr work entirely
and went home to Ix-down sick, and
to die for all I could t*?i!. I ran down so
rapidly that I soon becameunable to
walk any distance. L it<-r i went from
room to room in myown house only by
friends huldiuirnu' uw ov.-aeh arm. The
doses of ([tiiiiinc wt-r inerea>ed until 1
often Look llurh; ,/iat <:s t:( a i.'o>c. The
cffects of litis tremendous stimulation
was to make !iu* r!v will!. It broke
my sleep all up. and 1 often walked the
floor, or staggered about it. all niglit
long. searcel\ .-.Me to war any noises
or even hunian sp:-eeh. My temper
was extremely irritable. As to food,
one of my lit: 1 e.'di !ivn would cat
more in a men! than I could in a day.
I would order food and then turn from
it in disgust. I lived on quinine and
other stimulants and on mysdj.\ like a
bear in winter. The quinine set my
head in a whiri. and the liquor?given
as a medicine made my stomach so
sick I could not tolerate it.
From 17:') pounds (my proper weight)
I ran down to 97 pounds?tlic weight
of a light girl?and was scarcely better
than a skeleton.
If anybody ha-1 taken a hatchct and
knocked vie dn/vn and killed me I should
hare been belter <>ff.
During the latter part of this period,
early in 1880. my physician said:
"Miller, there's no use in my taking
any more money of you. 1 can't do you
any good. I might pour pounds of quinine
down your throat and it wouldn't
On the strength of this I gave up the
use of quinine altogether, and made up
niy mi ml to do nothing more and take
Three weeks afterwards?about the
last of May?my wife saw an advertisement
of Kaskine in a New York paper.
She (oid me of it. I said: 44 Stuff and
nonsense! it can't do mc any good."
But she went to a druggist's, nevertheless,
to get it. Tiie druggist advised
her against Kaskiuc: lie said it was
nothing but sugar: that she ought not
to throw affay her money on it. &c.
He said lie didn't keep :!. !-i;t could get
it if she insisted 0:1 haviii^-it. Turning
away ii: di>gnst my wife spoke to
our neighbor. Mr. A. G. Hegewald,
who got l:er a bottle at a drug store in
Alnt?\>t against my will, and without
the lejist faith. I hi-^ra:: taking it. In
one week I was better. I began to
sleep. I stopped 14 seeing gnosis. i
began to have an appetite and to gain
strength. This was now the first of
June, 188G. and by the end of that
month I was back at my bench at C. P.
Smith's scroll sawing factory in 116th
street, where I work now.
Since then I have never lost a day
from sickness. Taking Kaskine only,
about forty pellets in four equal doses
a day, I continued to gain. The malaria
appeared to be killed in my system.
and now I've got back my old
weight?17.3 pounds?and my old
strength to labor. I am an astonishnii.Tit
tn ml to 111 v friends, and
if K iskine did not do this I don't know
what did. The only greater thing it
could do vould l>?> to bring a dead man
to life. Fi:ki>kj;ick A. Miixkk,
