UNCLE LEM'S POTATIONS.
His Beasons for Suspecting the Doctor of
Being a Prohibitionist.
A few nights since Col. 0. C. King delivered
an excellent speech before the ilor- (
oi/itroianH ?r>r? Thnrman Club.
writes a ilorristown, Tenn., correspondent
of the Courier-Journal. To illustrate the be
fallacy of the Republican charge that the c*
Democrats are free traders, because they ai
want to reduce the tariff, he told the fol- tri
lowing anecdote of the doctor's experience co
with his patient, Uncle Lem Austin: iu
"But," the Republican orators say, "the an
Democratic policy of reducing the tariff is mi
a step toward free trade; we are opposed ne
to free trade, and therefore oppose any- se
thing that tends in that direction."
This sort of talk reminds me ot old of
Uncle Lem Austin's excuse for declining
to reduce the number of drinks he was bi
taking daily. w
Uncle Lem bad been a free drinker for a
long time. At last it began to tell on him. E
Be became sick and sent for the doctor. w
The doctor came, examined him, inquired ^
as to his symptoms, felt his pulse, looked is
at his tongue, sounded his chest, etc. a
Having, he supposed, suitably impressed tr
the old man, he said: "Uncle Lem, I am ti
afraid you are drinking too much whisky, w
and it is proper that I should say to you u
that vour trouble i s caused almost solely b
by the excessive use of intoxicants." 11
The old man did not seem to be at ail r'
surprised, but replied promptly: "Well, h
Doc, I wouldn't be surprised if you wan't 0
more'n half right 'bout that." b
"How much do you drink a day, Unci*- v
Lem?" inquired the doctor. b
"Well, I don't hardly know, Doc," re 1
plied the old man. "Let me see. I take 1;
a drink afore breakfus', and one arter <
breakfus', and two 'twixt breakfus' an' ?
dinner, and one afore dinner. How man} 's 1
"Five," replied the doctor. 1
"An'one arter dinner." 1
"An' two 'twixt dinner and supper." 5
"An' one afore supper." (
"An' one arter supper." ]
"An' two 'twixt supper an' bedtime."
"Twelve," said the doctor. !
"Well, them's about my daily rations,
"That's too much liquor, Uncle Lent.
You can't stand it; it will kill you. Now,
I suggest that you curtail the amount. It
won't do to quit off entirely. It would
prostrate you. But you could reduce the
number of drinks, say a third, and after
awhile make another reduction. Now,
suppose you drop off the two drinks between
breakfast and dinner and the two
between dinner and supper at first, unci
begin the reformation in that way."
Urcle Lem held his head down and reflected
a moment; then loking up and fixing
his bleary eyes on the doctor, said:
"See here, Doc; blame my cats if I don't
sorter b'leeve you're one o' them probibitioners,
an' I'm agin prohibition, tooth
and toe nail. Now, this here propersishun
o' vour'n looks to me mighty like a step in
ia tbe direction of prohibition, an' I ain't
agwine to take it; durn my skin ef I do;
I'll die fust."
How They Decided ItThere
were once twelve Normans who
traveled together, not one of whom had
ever seen the sea. One day they came
to a field spread with bleaching linen and
concluded it must be the blue water.
1'Brothers," said they, "we must swim
across." Removing their garments and
making bundles of them, which they
bore on their heads, they took hold of
each other's hands and commenced wading
through. First they counted their
party. "You and I are one, he and the
other two, and so on," said they, but no
one could enumerate more than eleven
this way. Thinking that one of their
party had dropped out and would join
them later they crossed the sea of linen
and again proceeded to the enumeration.
They were still unable to find more than
eleven, though each one tried, ''You and
I are one," etc. Finally one of them
said, "Brothers, I have it. We will take
twelve clods of dirt, and each one stick
his nose in his own clod. If there aro
twelve noses each clod will be used."
This plan succeeded, and they found
themselves twelve in numbe.?F. S. Bassett
A Sensation in Sumter Politics.
Sumtek, Nov. 1.?Considerable interest
was manifested this afternoon while the
county executive committee discussed the
independent movement here in reference
to the election for county sheriff. It was
currently reported on the streets that the
present sheriff, who was defeated at the
last primary election, would run as an in- j
dependent candidate. When the commit- J
tee met a sub-commit tee was appointed to
wait upon Sheriff Sanders and request his
presence before the county executive board.
When asked whether he was an independent
candidate, Mr. Sanders replied, no;
but on being requested to sign a pap^r that
he would not serve if elected as such, he
positively refused, and immediately handed
in his resignation as member of the CouDty
Board of Commissioners for the general
election. The opinion of the committee is
confirmed in Mr. Sanders' declaration that
he will be an independent candidate n ne
is not one now. Mr. Rhame was selected
to fill the vacancy, and Mr. Sanders's resignation
was forwarded to the Governor.
Not An "Independent."
Mr. Marion Sanders of Sumter publishes
the following card in the Advance of this

Register to the effect that there is an Independent
movement in Sumter County in

in my not receiving the nomination, but

party is;my candidate; I intend to vote for
him; have advised my iriends to do the
same and have discouraged all opposition
to his election.
My record as a Democrat and my unfaltering
loyalty to tEe party in all its conflicts
and trials since 1876, ought to be sufficient
to discredit all statements to the contrary."
A Political Fisticuff.
Sumter, Nov. 1.?a political fisticuff
too? place today between Col. Joseph II.
Earle and Mr. H. R, Thomas, of WedgeSeid.
It appears that Mr. Earle and Mr.
Tnomas got into a conversation about an
i.ricle in the Sumter Advance referring to
' -ol. Earle as "a very slippery fish, a veritable
eel." and Colonel Earle called Mr.
Thomas a liar, and high words passed, and
:Ley finally came to blows. They were
t^.en arrested and put ap their money, and
Mr. Earle went into ar. office close by, Mr.
"'hnrrtAs remainfnfr in flip street, in frnnt. nt
the court house. A few minutes afterward
Mr. Earle was seen coming at Mr. Thomas
with an uplifted stick. When he reached
Mr. Thomas he struck at him with the
stick, and Mr. Thomas caught the blow on
nis hand. They were then separated, and
Mr. Earle's friends carried him off. Great
excitement prevailed and several tights
have followed. Order is now restored and
all is quiet.?Special to News and Courier.
Fined 825 for a Fisticuff.
Sumter Nov. 2.?This morning the
cases against Mr. Joseph H. Earle and Mr.
H. R. Thomas for fighting, creating a disturbance
and violating the city ordinances,
was brought before the Mayor. In answer
to the mavor's question as to whether he
was guilty of the offences or not, Attorney
General Earle said that he was sorry that
tneanair naa to nappen, out mat unae*
similar circumstances the law would be
likely to be violated again. and that he had
nothing to say in his defence; that he was
the aggressor and that Mr. Thomas simply
defended himself, that in consequence of
certain words written or spoken by Mr.
Thomas he struck him, and thus was the
aggressor. In consequence of these statements
the mayor found Mr. Thomas not
guilty of the charges and fined Mr. Earle

AIDING THE NEGROES.
>w Mr. Hand's Oit't to the Colored People ' "
of the South Will Be Expended.
(From ;he Charleston World)
The recent munificent bequest made by
:. Daniel Hand, of Connecticut, for the '
nefit of the negroes of the South, edutionally
and otherwise, will no doubt do !
rreat deal toward elevating the race gen- m
illy iu thiis part of the South, and the 111
lored people of Charleston should come m
for a good share of the benefit, as there <Jr
e a L'reat many deserving, ambitious sh
embers of the race in this city who on'y tu
ed the means in order to bring them- ar
Ives up to an educational and intellectual be
oting with their more favored brethren Se
the North. jn
The following from the New York Trime
gives a good idea of the. manner in ja
hich the money will be expended:
"The establishment of the 'Daniel Hand .
ducalional Fund for Colored People,'
ith a gift of a million dollars, is an event ^
hich deserves commemoration. Mr. Hand f
au aged resident of Guilford, Conn., but "
large part of the fortune which he is disibuting
so munificently during his life- tl
me was acquired in business in the South, lc
here he obtained that knowledge of i he a
eeds of the colored race which is now
earing fruit so philanthropicalJy. It is ti
npossible to mention Mr. Hand without u
^calling another remarkable deed of which
e was the beneficiary. At the outbreak e
f the Rebellion he, a Union man, was in
usiness at New Orleans. He made his
ray North, leaving all his property in the
iauds of Geo. W. Williams, his confiden- ^
iai clerk and personal friend. Mr. Wil
iains took such goud care of the interests *
onfided to him that the value of the prop- *
:rty increased greatly, and after the war *
ie made an accounting by which a hand- t
iomc fortune -was t urned over to Mr. Hand, ?
vho, in the hands of a less upright agent, 1
would probably have recovered nothing i
roOLi his Southern estate. Thus it will be f
seen that he is now returning to the South <
.he gift he received thence, and in the j
character of his benefaction he Las sought 3
:o st cure the greatest good to the greatest ,
"In making the American Missionary '
Association ot this city the trustee of this '
splendid gift, Mr. Hand, has evidently '
been intluenced by the consideration that 1
this society already controls a machinery
which is peculiarly adapted to the work in
hand. As the giver desires that the colored
people 'in every Statein which slavery
was established by law in 1801' shall be entitled
to partake of the benefits f>f the fund,
it is evident that an elaborate administratrative
mechanism would have to be created
had not the idea of employing a system already
iu existence occurred to Mr. Hand.
It is, moreover, one of the special functions
of the Missionary Association to gather information
as to the deserving poor, and
??---? 1 -!a nt (1?. .(V,
especially me coiurcu [jcu^ic u.<, mo
The choice of this agency, therefore, has
the advantage of securing the m-!St cconomical
and at the same time prudent and
intelligent use ol the fund, and the extraction
l'rom the gift of the greatest possible
good. Mr. Hand has guarded the distribution
of his money by a few broad conditions
in no way calculated to hamper or
interfere with the judgment of the administrators.
No doubt he is wisely anxious
that his gift shall not become a source of
weakness to the beneficiaries by diminishing
their inducements to help themselves, aud
therefore he restricts the outlay to $100 in
any individual case. This is probably a
very prudent provision.
"The income of the capital turned over
to the Missionary Association will be sufficient
to do a great deal of good. Naturally
the intention is tc seek out the most ambitious,
intelligent and energetic colored people
and assist them educationally anu otherwise.
A large latitude is givcQ association
and there does not
danger of difficulties as to the construction
of the deed of gift. The news of this magnificent
gift to their race ought to be rei...
ceivea wim graieiui sausiuunuu uj me
colored people of the South, aud it is to be
hoped that one of. the effects will be to
rouse in them a determination to deserve
such munificence by proving their. ability
to profit by it."
The License Trouble.
That is a startling coDditiou of things
in Charleston, which results in seven tee a
reputable citizens being lodged in jail under
sentence for non-payment of fines imposed
for carrying on business without
first taking a city license. It is manifest
that behind tiie apparent stubbornness of
these men there is something more than a
mere determination to resist the enforce
mentof an obnoxious system of raising
revenue. There must be, in the first place,
the earnest conviction that taxation tinder
the guise of liceuse fees is wrong, because
it is unfair to those^ whose capital is invested
in business or who conduct any
business on their own account?while the
capitalist evades the burdens of taxation by
omitting to disclose all his property to the
tax-levying authority. But if this couviction
is really as strong as is indicated by
' fKa Hiifciiilrinor tflvnfl\v?rQ I
LUC UUUlfiC VI LJLZt. U&lUulbtUQ vu..
there must be more than this to induce the
course of action upon which they have deliberately
determined. The men who
make uartyrs of themselves, in this day
and generation, are, as a rule, fanatics, or
they are couscious of strong public sentiment
in their support. The gentlemen
who have been jailed in Charleston are,
we rather suppose, not of the fanatical ojder.
They are conscious that in their tight
against the license system they are sustained
by quite a large body of their feilow-citizens?as
well by many who, to
ayoid annoyance, have paid their licenses,
as by those "who have refused to pay. Such
a state f f feeling, however small in comparison
may be the body of citizeas who
share it, is not conducive to the strength or
the efficiency of the municipal government.
That government is a poor one indeed to
which obedience comes only from fear of
the sheriff, or the jail, or the penitentiary.
The city authorities in Charleston will
learn this sooner or later. They ought to
know it now. It may be proper to add
that The Record is opposed to the esac
tion cffees for licenses to carry on business,
because it legards that method of
raising revenue us unequal, arbitrary smd
oppressive, and as involving an evasion by
the municipal authority of the responsibility
of laying taxes on property to tbe
full extent necessary to support the government..

The Corpse 'Jnses Reviewed.
! The celebrated corpse trust case, which
! made; uch a sensation in Charleston last
year, has again been brought to pabiic
notice. It will be remembered that a
conspiracy was formed among a number
of whites and negroes, by which certain
life insurance companies in New York
and the West were swindled out of i
thousands of dollars, the consiprators insuring
fictitious persons and passing off
corpses procurred from the potter's field
as the deceased personages. The United
States Mutual Accident insurance company,
of New York, exploded the game
by the help of a Pinkerton detective, aud
five of the conspirators were sent to the
penitentiary. The case has been reopened
by a suit instituted by the heirs of fat
Forley, who killed himself sometime before
the exposure of the conspiracy and
who is suspected of having been concerned
in the conspiracy. Forley shot
himself accidentlaly, it is claimed,
while out gunning. His life was inRrirpd
for ;Sn_000 earth in the National
Alliance company and the Security
I Mutual Benefit Company, both of New
York. Pending a settlement of the
policies, the evidence in the corpse trust
case connected Foley with the conspiracy
and the companies refused to settle.
The heirs of Foriey have brought suit
to recover the policies from the coinpa
xiies named and shoxild the case come to
trial some new developments in this remarkable
conspiracy are expected.
A Frenchman spent ten years of his life
to invent, a noiseless clock, aDd when he
had succeeded nobody would buy it.
"Msmm.i " said a little five-year-old. as
his mother was giving hira a bath, "be
sure and wipe me dry, so I won't rust.''
"Yes," he said, "before marriage 1
thought I could live on love, but I am now
living on my father in-law."

em either a comfortable or healthy potion,
but apparently they are none the
orse for it. On either side of the door- o

nder the sheltering lee of a rock, in the .
rift that accumulates there. The build- 1
rs begin by marking out on the snow a
ircle about fifteen feet in diameter, ]
rhicli represents the inner side of the (
rails, and with a saw or long bladed
:nife they cut out blocks of snow, from
hree to six feet long by a foot thick and 1
tigh, from inside the circle they have 1
narked; then, placing the blocks around he
circle, they carry the walls up spirilly
(not in tiers), until they meet in a
:eystone above, at a distance of about
line feet from the excavated level of the
loor. The result is, except, of course, aa
a color, the production of a gigantic bee
live, over the door or in the center of the
roof of which is set a big block of fresh
water ice to serve the purpose of a winIcw
in lighting an interior that, although
stainless white at first, is soon blackened
by the ever smoking, evil smelling lamps
the inmates use.
The furniture of these human hives is
very simple, as may be readily supposed.
It consists of a bed place or divan along
the side of the "igloo," opposite the door,

you writer. These are made of firmly
packed snow, and raised al>out three feet
aliove the floor, the divan having its
outer edge faced with a pole to prevent
it from crumbling away when used as a
seat in the day time. The beds are made
up in the following manner; First, a
layer of moss spread over the snow; next,
a layer of sealskins; then a layer of bear
or deerskins, and finally the sleeping
bags, which resemble exaggerated pillowslips,
only that fur takes the place of
linen, and the fur is double, so that there
may be hair both inside and outside.
Into these bags, of which each adult has
one, the Eskimo, stripped to the bare
bull, creeps fcr the night, and
sleeps very comfortably. Up to the
age of 10 the children share their
parents' bag; after that tnev are promoted
to having one of their own.
Their fires are nothing more than
lamps rudely fashioned out of soapstone,
and so arranged as to be self-supplying, a
mass of blubber being hung in such close
proximity to the flame that the fat is
converted into oil, which, dripping into
the bowl below, is consumed by means
of a moss wick. As the lamp has no
chimney, and both oil and wick are of
the poorest, the result is the reverse of
brilliant, neither light nor heat being obtained
in what we wouJd consider a
satisfactory quantity. Just above
the lamps a sealskin is stretched to
prevent the heat thawing the roof away,
a precaution that seems hardly necessary,
seeing that the ordinary temperature of
these snow huts is 27 (legs, at the root
and 24 degs. at the level of the beds; in
other words, from 5 to 8 degs. below
In order to keep out as much cold aa
possible, the doorways are very low and
narrow, a fact which explains the curious
