Columbia, S. C.
Dear Sir: 1 have tlie noncr to acKnowiedge
the receipt of your communication of
You submit for my consideration and
opinion the following question: "Do the
persons who have been elected by the General
Assembly under and by virtue of 'An
Act to amend an Act entitled an Act to
create a Department of Agriculture' &c.,
approved 22nd December, 1SS7, now c institute
the Board of Agriculture?" In re
ply, l have to say, that on the same day
tiiat said Act was passed, the General As
seinbly elected ten members of said Board
as directed by said Act. The persons so
elected constitute the Board of Agriculture,
unless it should appear that at the time of
the election the General Assembly was not
- authorized to hold the same. The only
doubt as to the validity of the election that
could be suggested is, that no day is
specially named in the body of the Act as
the day upon which it shall take effect, and
hence, if it be subject to the provisions of
the Act of 1879 (General Statutes, Section
?><>\ rt./vn'M h/> cncnprirlpr! until
OOJ9 iio IT V/W1U ? ?._
ihe expiration of twenty days after its passage.
In reply to such suggestion, I -would
submit the following propositions, viz:
1. Under the Constitution of this State,
eveiy "Act of the General Assembly takes
effect immediately upon its passage.
2. No Legislature is authorized or empower^
to provide any rule or regulation
for the guidance or government oi subsequent
If we have reference only to the Constitution,
then the Act in question took effect
on the 23d December. 1SS7, the date of its
approval by the Governor. If it did not
then take effect, it must be in consequence
of t>?; regulation prescribed by the Act of
IS79. But if one Legislature has no power
to impose any restrictions upon any other
Legislature, then the Act of December 22,
1SS7, would in ;.o way be affected, in reference
to the time when it shall take effect,
by the previsions of the Act of 1S79, unless
it be presumed that the former borfy
intended to conform to the rule or regula
lion prescribed by the latter. This presumption
could only arise from the fact
that the Act of 1S79 was upon the statutebooks,
and if subsequent Legislatures did
not intend to be bound therebj- it would
have lieen repealed. But, on the other
hand, it is also to be presumed that the
Legislature intended the Act to take effect
according to the provisions of the Constitution,
unless the Act contains words showing
a contrary intention. This latter presumption,
it seems to me, is stronger than
tbe former. However, if it be otherwise,
still any presumption that the Legislature
intended to adopt as a part of this Act the
provisions of the Act of 1879, or that the
same should not take effect until twenty
days after its passage, is rebutted by the
fart that on the very day of its passage, to
wit, on December 22, 1887, the General
Assembly held an election as prescribed by
the Act in question, and elected the mem'-f
T!n<irri us thprpin nrovided?
thereby clearly indicating that, as to this
Act at least, it was not bound by the rule
or regulation prescribed by the Legislature
My opinion, therefore, is that the Act
in question took effect immediately- upon
its approval by the Governor, and that the
persons elected by the General Assembly
as aforesaid constitute the Board of Agriculture.

The First Shot at Sumtej.
The New York Tribnne published the
following paragraph on Saturday last: *'G.
S. C'oit, of Bridgeport, Conn., corrects the
statement, telegraphed last week from
? Charleston, S. C., that Justice Haynsworth,
of that city, who was shot on the Beach
during a 'difficulty' in Court between two
quarrelsome prisoners brought before him.
?as 'Lie man that fired the first gun on
ort Sumter in 1S61.' Mr. Coit says he
was in Charleston when the bombardment
of Sumter began, and that it was generally
understood there that the first shot was
fired by Ex-Governor Ruftin, of South
Carolina. He described Ruffin as being
then a very picturesque specimen of the
old-time fire-eater, with liis venerable figure
. and long, gray hair, and says that in his zeal
"* for the Confederate cause the ex-Governor
had begged the privilege of firing the shot
which he hoped might pass into history
with ihat other shot that was 'heard round
the world,' and Gen. Beauregard gratified
They are both wrong. The first shot,
fired at Sumter was fired by Capt. George
S. James. The story that Mr. Hayns^vorth
fired the first shot at Fort Sumter has
ali eady been corrected. As stated it was
the steamship "Star of the West" on which
lie fired when it was attempting to reach
Fort Sumter. There was no such person
as Ex-Governor Ruffin, of South Carolina.
The gentleman alluded to was Judge Ruffin.
of Virginia, who came to Charleston at
the first rumor of war and enlisted as a
private in the Carolina Light Infantry.?

A Romance in Real Life.
New York, January 7.?On September
5, Julius Feuret escaped from Sing Sing,
where be bad served four months of a five
year's term for forgery. Ke failed in his
attempt to swim across the Hudson, but
finally reached Stamford, Ct., and thence
made his way to Montreal. Tlnre he assumed
the name of Charles Chestlet, and
married a pretty young, French, Canadian
girl. Three months ago be brought bis
wife to Williamsburg, N. Y., and secured
a position as drug clerk at ?18 a week.
Since bis marriage be has led an exemplary
life and believed hiiTiself free from pursuit.
One day last week a former jail companion
recognized Feuret on Sixth avenue, and
notified Warden Brush. Tod-.y Feuret
was arrested at his home in Williamsburg
and returned to prison. Before being
taken away Feuret confessed to bis wife all
he bad done. His wife said, ' You have
always been a good husband to me," and
then swooned. As the ooor woman is in a
delicate condition it is much feared that the
shock may endanger her life.

A bill has been introduced in the Virginia
Legislature to prevent the Richmond & Danville
railroad company from establishing its

of the year when the crops are laid by,
affording a pleasant opportunity for the

Judge Mackcy an Lothario.
Ex-Judge Thomas J. Mackey, of whom
South Carolinians have very lively recollections,
has been figuring in a new role.
Some weeks ago he went to Bismarck, Dakota,
in company with a handsome woman
s:yling herself "Mrs. Witherbee," and put
up at the biggest hotel in "the city. The
two afterwards hired a fine house, and soon
became the social "guns" of the place.
They "gave gorgeous entertainments, and
were sought after in all directions. Their
prestige was at its height. Suddenly there
came a fall. A servant girl, -who quit because
she had not got her wages, shocked
twyjYIp hv rfoolnrincr that, t.Vtp twain wprf*
liviDg as man and wife. Admirers refused
to believi?, doubters withheld their attentions,
bat sensible people soon believed the
story. Judge Mackey and his alleged
niece, traveling to restore her broken,
health, soon fell into disgrace.
The truth, summed up, seems to be
about as follows: Nettie Dunlap, a poor
girl of New York, showed magnificent vocal
powers. She was educated in music,
and soon created a furore. Soon her name
was connected in a scandalous way with
that of a Western millionaire, but it was
claimed that the old gentleman was but her
benefactor and foster-father. In February,
1SS6, she was married, in grand style,
to" A. Scott Wilherbee, of Washington?
the millionaire attending the wedding and
making handsome presents. Things went
smoothly for some months, but soon Nettie
went West?and went astray. The next
thing in order is the suit for divorce, which
Witherbee has already commenced.
Judge Mackey claims to have his present
residence in Dakota. *

a fact that many large manufacturing con- ?
cers have found it difficult to call a halt at
the closing of the year sufficient to get their s
books and stocks in shape to see how things' c
stand in corsequence of such large volumes a

engaged in prayer, and again so disturbed
those collected at the front windows
that the sermon preached in the
Church just in front of the jail could not
be heard. The other prisoners seized

Is it the shot, the blood, the broken
bones, or the feathers, that makes prairie
chicken meat such a delicacy? If
tame fowl were brought on the table in
the condition in which the prairie
chicken is usually served, it would be
considered entirely unfit to eat; so I
don't think the epicurean public would
lose much if prairie chicken shooting
should be prohibited by law the year
round, for at least five years, and longer
if the birds were not plentiful enough at
the end of that time. I think there
would be little or no objection to such
a law. Every sportsman in the United
States would like it, and of course every
farmer would commcud it; even the
market shooter would endorse it if he
had brains enough to comprehend its
advantages, for now he can hardly earn
fifty cents a day, owing to the scarcity
of game, while five years of this law

most of their food, and only pick a little
grain to season the insects that, but for
them, would do more damage on an

The Love and Respect of Children.
If mothers could only realize-what a
critical period their children are passing
through from the third to the sixth
year, they would exercise more than
ordinary care during that time. Not
only physically but mentally and morally
are they undergoing a change; a
change for better or worse, according
to the care and attention they receive
from their mothers and fathers. A
father is no more exempt from certain
duties towards his offspring than the
mother, lie should always bear in
mind that his assistance in the control
of the children is of more value to his
tired wife than the presentation to her
of a costly gift It is at this time that
children begin to notice papa's andmamma's
bearing towards one another;
let this always be one of perfect courtesy
and respect. Nothing so quickly
destroys respect for parents as constant
hj/?fcf>rin? in the nrescnce of their chil
dren. r.the first thing a child should be
taught-is respcct for his parents and
elders; affection comes naturally with
most children and is the most valuable
aid in gaining control of their actions;
next to that is respect, without it very
little can 'be accomplished for the child's
welfare. Parents should bear this in
mind tbat children lose respect very
soon upon hearing them disagree; using
bitter, cutting words to each other. This
is inflicting the first actual pain these
baby hearts have been called upon to
bear. In the presence of this the child
experiences conflicting emotions, which
ends in pity for one parent and contempt
for the other. O parent, ;pause,
consider before you lose this hold on "
the little being who has heretofore considered
you perfect. Let there be
unanimity of purpose in act, word and
deed before these little creatures, who
are so susceptible to every new impression,
if yon would preserve their love

mportant Truths About Beef Tea. L
To give beef tea alone to a sick per>n
is to give him a stone tvhen he asks
>r bread. It is not a food, it is a stiruu- f<
Lilt! This is the startling' information t<
lat we read in Dr. Fother^iirs Manual ('
I Dietetics, published by William Wood tl
; Co. When flesh is boiied its albumen P
coagulated, aud beef tea as ordinarily a
rep area contains no albumen. It is a
ractically destitute of matter that can s
reriorm tissue, and is equally without li
alue as fuel food. j1
Says Sir William Roberts: "There is u
'idespread public misapprehension in s
jgard to the nutritive value of beef. tea. a
'he notion prevrfts that the nourishing d
ualities of the meat pass into the dc- t
oction and that the dry, liard remnant s
f the meat fiber which" remains undis- t
Dived is exhausted of its nutriment y
roperties. In making common beef 1
23. the ingredients which pass into so- s
ltion are the rapid extractives and as- t
hes of the meat, and nothing more, r
xcept some trifling amount of gelatine. <
."he meat remnants, on the other hand, <
ontain the actual nutriment of the f
aeat; and if this be beaten to a paste 1
rith a spoon, or pounded in a mortar, '
HtiItt flivrvtwl with salt and other 1
ondiments, it constitutes not only a 1
lighly nourishing and agreeable, "but ?
ilso an exceedingly digestible, form of t
Dr. King Chambers gives directions
or preparing nutritious beef tea: Make 1
he cook understand that the virtue of 1
)eef tea is to contain ail the contents <
md flavors of lean beef in a liquid
orm; and that its vices are to be sticky '
md strong and to set like a hard jelly 1
vhen cold. Let her take half a pound
)f freshly killed beef for every pint of :
aeef tea required, and remove all fat,
sinew, veins and bone. Let it be cut
nto pieces under half an inch square,
md soak for-twelve hours in one-third
3f the water. Let it then be taken out
md simmered for two hours in the remaining
two thirds of the water, the
quantity lost by evaporation . being replaced
from time to time. The boiling
Liquor is then to be poured on the cold
liquor in which the meat was soaked.
Ilie solid meat is to be dried, pounded
in a mortar, freed from all* stringy
parts and mixed with the rest This
has been termed "whole" beef tea.
I can see sundry readers, says Dr.
Fothero-ill. having been driven past the
stage of incredulity by the liard logic of I
facts, wringing their hands in anguish I
over the thought of departed relatives
who have been practically starved to
death on beef tea. The mistaken views
about the nutritive value of beef tea
have been murderous. As a food, it is
but the mirage of water seen by the
thirsty traveler in the desert; there is no
real water. So with beef tea, as commonly
prepared, it is not a food, but a
"Whole" beef tea is no doubt a good
food; very good in convalescence from
acute diseases, when wasted muscular
tissue has to be repaired. But in many
cases it is open to question whether so
much albuminous matter is cither good
or desirable. When this is not used,
there should be .added a teaspoonful of
any baked flour to a teaspoonful of ordinary
beef tea, and some salt Wellbaked
flour is largely changed into
soluble dextrine; ana beef tea, containing
some such addition, is a capital
fnnd. If the baked flour be made from
unbolted flour, tben some albuminoid
matter is present as well as the salts of
the grain. Such will make an ideal
fluid food.?Good Housekeeping.
The Latest Fad in Osculation.
The little god of love will possibly
faugh in his sleeve, if ever be wears
one, to learn there is a new kiss. It is
a ticklish subject to deal with, for everybody
supposes he or she understands
the art of this expression of affection,
and will feel aggrieved to be told there's
something new about so old a chestnut
Nevertheless, society has been
stirred by the intelligence that it is now
the proper caper to imprint a salute on
the.tipofthe nose when friends desire
to be particularly demonstrative. The
courtly kiss upon the hand, the warmer
osculation of the lips,, have been thrown
into social darkness by no less an
arbiter than the Princess of Wales! It
appears that this lovely specimen of
royalty was observed kissing her sisterin-law,
the Princess Waldemar, in this
particular fashion, whether by accident
or intention the observer fails to state,
and immediately the idea caught on to
the flattsring crowd of courtiers. When
two ladies meet or part now it won't be
"My dear! (kiss on the right cheek)
how dad I am to see you" (kiss for the
left cheek)?but the gushing pair will
just light on the tips of each other's
noses, like two birds pecking at a lump
of sugar. This fashionable kiss has its
advantage, as will be seen at once.
There can be no disturbance of "makeup."
No one understands that better
than the lovely Princess. The French
kiss on the forehead, emblematic of
chastity and deep devotion, is routed?
foot, horse, and dragoons?by this new
kiss, which oUght to be immensely popular,
considering it is the latest London

I am a Welch man by birth and education,
and when I landed in America
I thought of making my fortune in the
South. 1 didn't succeed. That, , however,
do2sn't matter. But I remember
an incident at which I didn't laugh at
the time, but which I can laugh at now
as often as you like. While 1 was waiting
for s omething to turn up, the local
school-master got a bullet sent into'
him. ]Sb one regarded the incident as
extraorii inary, but pending the arrival
of a new man some one was wanted to
"teach school," and with my proverbial
200U nature I agreed to step in and fill
the bench. I got on very well until in
one of the reading boobs we came across
the word "Hezekiah," which seemed an
impassable barrier. I told the first boy
to spell i t, when to my surprise he called
the third letter "zee." In England
and Wa.es, and indeed everywhere I
had bee:i, the last letter of the alphabet
was calljd "zed," and I attributed the
new nomenclature to Southern ignorunce.
All down the class went thai
fatal letler, and as I passed each boy 1
began to grow dimly conscious of the
tact- that I was being regarded as a
lunatie-During the recess I expressed surprise,
at the boarding-house where I was
staying, at the ignorance of boys of 12
md 13 who didn't know their alphabet
I'he laughter which greeted the recital
rather discomfited me, and when I was
anally enlightened I felt smaller than
;ver, "either before or since. The.school- '
louse had to remain closed till the new
ichool-master arrived, for a regiment of

Public otunion at Salem was "
Drilled by a crowd of ruffianly young
jilows who were called the "Clary's
trove Boys." Ones or twice a week
liey descended upon the village and
asscd the day in drinking, lighting, i
nd brutal horse-play. If a .stranger
ppeared in the place, he was likely to
uffer a rude initiation into the social n;
ife of New Saiem at the hands of these
Dvial savages. Sometimes he was nailed a
p in a hogshead and rolled down hill,
ometimes he was insulted into a fight
.nd then mauled black and blue; for
iespite their pretensions to chivalry they
iad no scruples about fair play or any
uch superstitions of civilization. 'At .
irst they did not seem inclined to molest
oung Lincoln. His appearance did not
uvite insolence: his reputation for rtrength
ami activity was a greater pro- 1
ection to him than his inoffensive good
lature. But the loud admiration ol ti
3fFutt gave them umbrage. It led to &
lispute^ contradictions, and finally to a
ormal banter to a wrestling-match, v
jiiicoln was greatly averse to all this d
'wooling and pulling," as he called :L
3ut OiTutt's indiscretion hail made it i
icccssary for hnn to show his mettle. c
Jack Armstrong, the leading bully of c
;he gang, was selected to throw him,
md expected an easy victory. But he i
;oon found himself in different hands :rom
any he had heretofore engaged ivith.
Seeing he could not manage the ?
:all stranger, his friends swarmed in,
md by kicking and tripping nearly ?
succeeded in getting Lincoln down. At f
this; -o i. is been said of another hero, 1
"the _p."xit of Odin entered into him,"
:md" putting forth his whole strength, he
held the pride of Clary's Grove in
his arniw like a child, arid almost choked
the exuberant life out of him. For a
moment a general-fight seemed inevita- 1
ble; but Lincoln, standing undismayed '
with his back to the wall, looked so
formidable in bis defiance that an iioneat
admiration took the place of momentary
fury and his initiation was
over.. As to Armstrong, he was Lin- i
coin's friend and sworu brother as soon
as he recovered the use of his larynx,
and the bond thus strangely created
lasted through life. Lincoln had no
further occasion to fight his own battles
while Armstrong was there to act as his
champion. The two friends, although
so widely different, were helpful to each
other afterwards in many ways, and
Lineoln made ample amends for the
liberty his hands had taken with Jack's
throat, by saving, in a memorable trial,
his son's neck from the halter.
This incident, trivial and vulgar as it
may seem, was of great importance in
Lincoln's life. His behavior in i.L:s ignoble
scuffle did the work of years for
him, in giving him.the position he re
quirea in tne comiuuuuy wuuo mo i-jt,
was c:ist. He became irom that moment,
in a certain sense, a personage,
with a name and standing of his own.
The verdict of Clary's Grove was unanimous
that he was "the clevcrest fellow
that had ever broke into the settlement."
He did not have to be constantly
scuffling to guard his self-respect,
and at the .same time lie gained
the good-will of the better sort by his
evident peaceableness and integrity.?

The Greatness of Garrett.
The part that Robert Garrett bears
towards the social life of Baltimore is
large. He is rich, sociable and generous.
He is a constant contributor to
private and public charities, and no
worthy relief fund escapes without a
large donation from.him. Many Philadelphians
know what his hospitality is.
(.in unusual occasions aa umueis uc
rery splendid affairs, but it is when he
entertains a ha!i dozen friends, or
more, at his coun :ry house that he plav?
the host in his most genial and captivating
way. No man is better known in
Baltimore. It is -a curiosity to see him
walk up Charles street. He wears a
beaming smile and he seems to speak
to every other person he meets. -The
other day when, he arrived from Europe
he started from the Stock Exchange to
his office, two nquares distant. It took
him over two hours to reach his office, 4
and when he did get there he had
shaken two hundred or three hundred
hands and had talked to several hundred
persons without giving them the
slightest reason why Baltimore and Ohio
stock had jumped up a dozen points the
first day ho arrived in Baltimore. As
to Mr. Garrett's much-discussed clothes,
it is sufficient, to say that he i? an
eminently weli-dresscd man. H<? is
given to the acquirement of the finest
things that money can buy. He has a
new ?500,000 house. He has splendid
horses and he has handsome and stylish
clothes and plenty of them, but to call
him a foo is to do him a great injustice.
It may be added that he occasionally
attempts speech-making, but the friends
who know him bes? and who have
heard his speeches give him no encouragement
ir. this direction, for he is
a modest man, and modest men are not
always good orators.?Fhiladelphia

this is a sum which may indeed be well
