THE LIEN LAW.
T.ie ivp-wof f:- Id v one of
til; f 4'ij; i?r >ul>j -v.- t >a- i* ?!? 'ated in
th'J G *? r il A-h?*>ii >!y every sear.

"Tue poor man's friend" is the familiar
argument used to ki l a rep?al
of the law.
So much has been said on the subject
that there remains nothing new.
We believe it is generally admitted
that it *'Ou!d have been better for the
people as a whole bad no such law
been passed. It was passed in liadiHBRP
cal days, and the purpose of it was to
enable colored u nauts to get provisions,
and the result is that the tenants,
not the colored oues only, but white
cuss too, nave lauen into a movkii auu
careless system of farming. The one
purpose of the man who run-; on a
lieu is to plant enough cotton to pay
his grocery bill secured by the lien on
his crop, and he carts very little about
what becomes of his landlord's land
Consequently the tenant buys all ol
his provisions, often at very higfc
prices, and raises nothing to eat al
home. His landlord's land has beei:
neglected and what was once rich
X ~ v\r\rrr a hflrrdll

eovered with broom straw or in su!'
lies, and pra?licallv worthless.
We believe that if a dircct vote o;
the people could be taken on the
question of tbe repeal of the law, thai
a large majorhy would be in the
affirmative. Hundreds and hundreds
of merchan's will give it as theii
opinion that (ha law has encouraged
dishonesty, that many of them have
been ruined bv it, and that it would
be better for them to repeal tbe law.
The repeal of the iien law will d:
much towards solving the overproduction
in cotton. A lien on a crop to
sccure a grocery bill precludes the
idea of raising anything to eat, and
the lienor starts out with the
idea that he mu?t plant cotton, and
generally the merchant as a prerequisite
to making the advances demands
that a fall crop of cotton be planted,
and then a mortgage on the mnle and
the cow mast be pat in to make ap
for the probable low piiceof eotton.
Bat the point will be made, of
coarse, is the coantry ready for it:
Can it start on a new line all at once:
The answer is that necessity will provide
a remedy. Nobody, as far as w

"'"FaTtlijId " County. Mr. Fairey, ol
Oi'iDgebar?, cited a case in point;
doring the debate the other day. "He
would rela e a case he kuew of. A

Hp went backwards and was finally
sold oat, and lest his fiorse, mule, and
al:. The merchant who had run him
fo- five years refused him advances.
He went home an i cried uatil he was

?5raaa^jQr^ii^fianiy. "At the end of the
je-r he had three bales of cotton and
did not owe a cent on them, and tod
ly :h it farmer is pretty well off and
does not owe a cent." Repeal the
lien law, and all lienors will have to
do as Mr. Fairey's mm, bat ltke Mr.

THE PATTO> REDISTRICTIXG BILL.

to strengthen his case Mr. Patton has

the House, and if it &ball pas? the
Senate it will be the end of "ihe
shoestring Congressional Districts."
A* Tar as Fairfield is concerned, we do
not think it will be a.-iy worse off in
thd new arrangement of the District,
and we caunot ?ay thit it will be any
brfter cff for the change but taking
ths State as a whole trie change sought
to-be made by the Patton bill is desirable.
Fairfield under the PatU^n
b'll will be in what is nominated "The

Col. W. A.Xeal has made a good
record as ? public official, but he had
too much to do with "management"
of somebody's campaign. In politics
as soon a3 it is found out that a man
is tryiug to hoe somebody else's row
besides his own, that man is marked
and his political career is soon ended.

EWORLD'S BESTTITERATURE IN*
SIXTY-SIX VOLUMKS.
The Bible Strident and Rtligi ms OiUUok.
Several libraries of :h.i ">oild'Best
Literature" have been recnntlv
published and advertised and bvii^ir
extensively. VV'e do not particular I\
admire these work?. But the idea
set ns thinking, ana we pu.pcse wining
now of a- othoi library, ot pixtysix
roluDies, which are in the reach
of all, and which may justly be styled
"The World's Best Literalure."|
This is really a coraf.rehensire
library, of sixty-six works, by some
forty different authors, including
history, philosephy, poetiv, fiction,
law, essays, letters" and religion. The
writings arc not coDflned to one age
either, bur coyer a period of 1,G00
years Moreover, the masterpieces
here gathered together a re the foundation
and fountain head of most of
' (he reit of the world's good literature.
, The uion able of all the world'*
writer!1, with few exception?, hare
acknowledged their indobtedne3< to
these authors by continued quotation
1 and allusion, it not by actual confesi
?ion and tribute. No one who makes
any pretensions to literary culture,
can affor J 10 neglect these writings.
Dr. Worrisworth speaks thus of them:
' ''The Bible alone, of all books in the
world, addresses itself t> the whole
f man. It exercises his memory,
! strengthens his reason, ontrols his
j passions, informs fnis judgmen', i egu
11 lates bis c wecience, sanctities nis win,
i enlivens his fancy, warms his
( nation, choiisbss bis affections, stimu5
lates his praotioe, quickens his hope,
and auinK'os bis faith."
Others nave testified similarly. Sir
Wm. Jones wrote on the fiy-leai* of bis
t Bible: "I have regularly and alien
, lively read the?e Holy Scriptures and
' am of opinion, that this volume, inde'
pendently ?f it- divine origin, contain*
more snblimity and beauty, more pure
; morality, more important history, and
. finer strains of poetry and eloquence,
I than can be collected from all oiher
! books iu whatever age or language
! they may have been compose.'."
I Any on;* who is perfectly master of
the literature in these sixty-six volumes
must of necessity have a cultivated
taste, or in other vsords, literary cul
tnre. Where cau historians be !ound

as Mose* andjthe writers of Samuel,
Kings, Chronicle3, and the Gospels
: and Acts? Calmly |and majestically
the facts are narrated without com
. ment to bia* the reader. The short(
comiogj and falls and egregiou- sins
of the heroic, wise and good are told
without concealment, qualification or
! apology. Yet nowhere do we find the
, dry, mechanical record of the annalist.
Or take heroic poetry combined
: with dramatic form, and wbare hare
' we anyth ng grander than the Epic of
? Job? Where can sublimer passages
be found than in this work ? There

Bible is an unequaled source of literary
inspiration As a book of religious
truth, it :s supreme; but religious
tru:h witbont any impairment of its
value or obscurity of its meaning, may
be studied from the literary standpoint;
in fact, in the light of literary
criticism, or tested by the usual cations
of the scho'ar, it will appear more
sacred, moro beautiful, more divine.
Never forgetting that it is our manual
of religion, it is also the vehiele of the
most wonderful literature in human
aunals, an-: precedes in importance all
others. 'I iiere is no boot so cotnpo?ite
in eh-trscter and yet so harmonious

styles an-: yet so educational in
rhetoric and logic, so varied in content-,
and \ et so progressive in_ phi

Taken as 54 whole, it is massive, comprehensive,
a revelation of the IaS'iite.
S'uiied in its parts, it stimulates
single faculties whila it ministers
nouiit-bment to ihe whole frame. I s
oistories are more compact than those
of Herodotus, Gibbon or Macaniay;
its poetry, whose key is a mystery,
quiets Homer, Shakespeare and Ten in son;
its Dropbecies are unique climaxes
of wisdom, both in drapery ana substance;
its biographies excel those of j
Plutarcb, Irving, CarlyJe and Boswell;
its chronicles of wars are superior tn
those ot Janus uasear, Wellington, i
Napoleon and Ulyssei Grant; itsi
epistles eclipse those of Piim, Madame |
Sevigne and Francis Bacon; its lsws.
in their ethical and spiritual import,
are quite beyond Jnstinian, Blackstone
and the English Parliament. Every
phajij of literature, every norm of
wisdom, is in tbe Bible. It ministers
to all ta3tes and arouses the slumbering
intellects of all who can comprehend
the difference between reality
and fiction, and who incline to virtue
rather than vice."

tbe Bible, Homer and Sir Walter Scott
for his mental discipline; Charles
Reade p-.onouoces tbe characters in the

NOTHING OF THE ROADS.
Is it two late for this general assem
b:y lo distinguish itself by es'ablishins
a sane and definite road system for the
Slate and to build for itself a monu
ment which will endure while the
Si ate erits?
We have had in South Carolina i
century and a naif of government sap
po??d to be civilized, tweut}-two year:
of white man's government and eigh
years of "reform" government. Ye
onr repor'.s from everywhere say thai
the roads are to-day worse than thej
have ever been. Millions of dollar/
of the money of the taxpayers has
be.n spent on them, and yet the tax
payer can not use them without serioui
danger to his neck, his horses and bis
running gear. Because we hive had
some days ot rain the people in th?
country are couipeiieu 10 tiay at iioiue
road bound. Tney can not venturr
out for business or pleasure.
ilow long will we continue this
folly? Why should wecontinne it?
We bare got to come down to rock
and rock placed on scientific road
building piincrples. The work must
be done soma "time1. Why not be^in
now?
Five hundred convicts with fhe help
cf material and tue regular road labor
of the counties could do an enormous
amount of macadamizing work in a
t\ear. Tne road they would build
would be worth vastly more to the
people of th; S ate, now and hereafter,
directly and tudirectly, than their labor
could yield on State farm? or in hire
paid by lessees. We would not care
where or how th?y began, so they began.
They mifbui;<l -i broad, hard,

State from the North Cur-' inn line in
Spartanburg, G:eenvi le. I'icke-.s or
Oconee t-> the corpo-.vioa ih<e of
Charleston or Port Royal, or they
might build across the S:ate or begin
at Columbia oncl build oai tAeuty
mile? lo each point of the compars.
It would m*ke no difference where
the}" began. If tbey built, 200 miles
of gc od road anywhere in the State in
a year they Yrotiid complete2,000 miles
in ten years and would add vastly to
