criticism 83 an illmtratbu of *ha
can happen from the license jrircr
constable* under the law. Crawfuri
had a seirch warrant, it is true, bu
according to som3 of the witnesses
among them bis fellow-coost&bies, b<
aommitted an unnecessary assault anc
battery iu attempting to txccute hi
warrant. Ha had plenty of force at hi
command to have arrested Stu&rt-oi
the spo% and saved the State the borroi
of having a woman killed, whom i
prominent Methodist miBister say? wai
t- Christian woman. No tact or wis<
discretion was exercised by the eon
itablt?, and it can hardly bo expectc<
of them that they shall be wise an(
pradtntin the?e raids. They a: e no
so actch to blame themselves for thei:
instance as the State of Soatb Care
lina, which carries on its statn'e booki
this infamous law, and makes "specia
pets" of the w hi* key constables
There meet be torching radically
wrong in any law where so reunv live
are lost in its enforcement. Something
mn*t be wrong with it when innocen
people are killed, whether through mis
fob-c r?n nnf TrtA m.tnv are killed b1

now a poor innocent Christian wotnai

The members of the General As
searbly can congratulate tbemselve
that the Legislature of 1S99 has bee
more kindly spoken of ia the news
papers than any Legislature for th
pa*t eight or nine years. Some of th
members may be indifferent as t
what may be the newspaper opinio:
of there, bat nearly every man i
pleased to have kind words said o
him_ we think it nalnr&l. Ii
looking over the papers of the State
we have seon none which dv
not express the opinion that the per
?annel of the Assembly has great!]
advanced, and satisfaction with th<
j body on the whole is expressed.
Of course, there is difference o:
opinion as to what the Assembly onghi
to h&vt done, and what it ougbi no
in H?va rtnnc. f??r it. wnnlri hr? a mn?
remarkable state of afTiir* if everybody
agreed.
The most striking characteristic it
the Legislature this year was an almos
? -- -i -r r?AT l T?
enure aosencs ui jskjujuui iuca. iu
__ 1898, the relation between members
was more cordial than for many years
and In 1899 it seems tolme heeu more
*o. Tha time is near at band, if it ii
no: here altogether, when an important
question can be considered ir
the Legislature without bittor faction*
feeling? and vuhou- thedispiar o
any bo38:sm. 0< the whoie, lik<
nearly all of the ne ? spapers in thf
State, we are very weil picased with
the Central Assembly of 1893.
No*th Carolina ought to- learn f
lesson from South Carolina. The
Baptist Courier warns the brethrer
across tbe^line:
AiJO XJiUiiWVi says. x rbiui
L. Johnson, of Greensboro, and a
large number of Greensboro people,
were in Baleigb last week to advocate
/ a dispensary for Greensboro." Thai
sounds very strange to people in this
State, where the dispensary has been
tried. Alihongh many people believe
it is better than the old saloon system,
yet there are very few church people
who will work for the establishment
of a dispensary in their oommunity,
The Fairfield delegation in the
Legislature did not introduce a great
*s&ny bills, and we think this is to
their credit. It is a wrong Idea to
sappDso that a man should b? sent to
the Legislature to introduoe bills.
There are other and as important
duties required of a representative.

f conceived the idea of trying mouke\s
as an economical method of picking.
^ It seems that two years ago, 1896,
, daring a fair at Vicksburg, Miss ,
} Frof. S. M. Fracey and Mr. Mangrum,
y the cotton planter, were watching the
tricks done by some trainod monkeys,
' and ibi-5 suggested to Trof. Fracey
t. thitthv imnkey conld bo trained to
j pick o.'ton, and be thought tbat ?bey
j coald d^> it "as well as negroes, or
t better and aiow cheaply." Mr. Mangrain
.w-'n ins.-eduloui, but the more
? he thoag ht over it^tbe more favorable
I he thought cf the 6agges;lon. Finally
ha canctndeJ t.) make a trial of the
i monkey, an i iu September, 1897,
} Mangrnm b:tight ten trained monkeys
r in New YorX city, and at the same
^ time employed their trainer. The
8 monkeys, tho Nsws and Courier tells
5 us, were put on the farm about the
middle of September. A smill bag
I that would hold about 25 pounds of
j cotton w&i placed over the shoulder
t of each little animal, aad the agricul
'
r taral paper, The So or hern Planter*'
Journal say?:
3 "It was sarprisiug ho*? rapidly the
i trainer taught the monkeys to pick ihe
cotton. Basket? to hold the oot'on
were placed at the end* of the row*,
r and one man, besides the trailer,
b necessary to take th<=- cotion out of
r the sacks and put it in the baskots.
The females proved mu<;h befer
1 pickers than the ma!e=, for ihe' n--^
only picked cleaner co:ton. but tbev
f would also pick more of it in a dv,
r In less than a month after the monkeys
were started., at the work they c>uf;i
1 pick on an average of 150 pounds a
a day. They picked in we*tber id
which negroes would y.ot pick, and
_ picked cleaner cotton. The cost of
picking was much less, &n<1 iu every
* way the? made much better pickers
' than the average negro."
" So much encouraged "was Mr. Mangrnoa
by this'firet test of the monkey
r as a geed and cheap cottou picker that
" be determined to add to the lorce of
e his new farm laborers, and accordingly
0 io Jane, 1898, he ordered SOCi monkeYS
from an exporter in Africa, "with the
a understanding that most of them were
!" to be females," presumably beoanse
the females picked more cotton and
'1 cloy* Thft- a aw

*nrl nnt: to work. The corrae

8 writes:
f "I have matched this experiment

(_ with-Mr. ilangrum about itand abuat
the middle of November I visited his
plantation near Smedes ?o see the (
monkeys at their work. I mu->t admit
that it was a glorions- V-igbt t? see,
i- and one that did my hear? good. I'ue
s rows were filled with monkeys, each
one with her little cotton seek aronnd
her neck, picking away q-iietly and
'* orderly, and without any rmh or oon8
fusion. Whin they got their saaks
e I fnll tbev would ran to the end of the 1
row, where a man was stationed to
empty them into the co:: v basket,
Q when tbey would hurry batk - th*ir

PROPOSED PBKSION LAW APPROVED
, BY VETERAN'S.
? a
Amendment Suggested So as to Retain
Confederate Camps as Now Constituted. /
Tlic Slate. I
, i The Confederate veteran* are very ll
i i much interested in the pension bill in- |!
; i troduced by Representative Dean or
i Spartanburg:, who is himself a veteran,
i The bill provides that all applications
for pensions mnrt- first be approved
by the commander of the camp
of Confederate veterans to which the
applicant belongs or which is located '
in his or her township. The bill also
requires that the bona fide ei-Sonfederafes
of every township shall be

. organized feioiu u uamp, uut ?ue vwi
jaction to this is that it will interfere
to a great extent with the present
organization of the camps, which is
not regulated with respect to townsliip
lines, and as the bill has been con
tinned until the next session by the
senate, it is proposed to change the
provisions so as to require all applications
to be apprqyed bv the com
mander of the camp nearest to the
J applicant *or of which the applicant
. mau Via a momhor Tt ia Sthv
" Maj. U. R. Brooks, who has taken an
' interest in the matter, as he always
does in things pertaining to the Confederacy,
that the bill will, with the
' proposed changes, commend itself
i favorably to the old soldiers, inasmuch
as it will do a great deal to prevent
i impositions upoo the law, since those
who best know the services of the applicant
and his needs will have the
> opportunity to pass npon the applica1
tion. Maj." Brooks thinks the bill
' will bo amended as stated and that it
' will go through.
> Under the terms of the new bill,
i after the application has been apr
proved by the commander of the local
famn if mnnt. ha fiiibmitied to the refri
mem to which the camp belong?, all
the camps in a county being organi2?d
into a regiment, as ia the rale in the
present organization of the Uniied
- Confederate Veterans. Three dele3
gates from each camp in the regiment
shall meet and elect three persons as a

How to Find Out
Fill a bottle or common glass with
1 your water and let it stand tirenty
foar bonr#; a sediment er settling indicates
au unhealthy condition of the
kidneys; if it stains yonr linen it is
evidente of kidnev trouble; too fre- li]
. qaent desire to pass it or pain in the
back is also convincing proof that the
, kidneys and bladder are ont of order.
WHAT TO DO.

necessity of being compelled
to 20 often during i ho day, and to i
