Bussey and others were slightly

by attempting to fill a hot boiler with
water. The young men whose lives

The latest discovery of thi
Sheppardites at Newberry C. H. ii
that Tillman' by advocating th<
$3 poll tax mean s to strike a deatl
blow to the poor mau. Some o
our Edgefield boys were over afev
days ago, and arguments in sub
stance as follows were used by sev
eral "Sheep" and very effectiv?
argument they would be if the*,
were true. Their arguments wai
that Gov. Tillman favored the re
peal of the 2-mill tax and as a sub
stitute therefor advocated the $?
poll; thereby relieving the rici
man but sticking it to the poor one
Said one : "Here's Mr, McCaughrin
President of our bank,.worth $75,
OOO, and who now undrr tho 2-mil]
tax system pays $150 behool tax,
But Tillman, according to his plan,
will relieve Mr. McCaughrin o?
this whole amount, and as he ie
too old to day a poll tax, will gc
Scott free, while you and thousands
of others whose school tax at pres
ent don't amount to 50 cents will
have to pay the $3."
And some of these men to whom
this revelation' was made were
ready to denounce Tillman and
swing on to Sheppsrd without one
moments reflection or considera
tion. Why does Gov. Tillman ad
vocate the $3 poll tax, if it is no!
for the purpose of increasing the
school funds and thereby have
them to run for a longer period?
Assuming that to be his purpose,
or at least one of the reasons for
wanting the poll tax increased,
how is it consonant with reason
for him to advocate the abolition
of the2-mill tax and the substitu
tion of the $3 poll instead, when
such a course wonld not only in
crease the public school funds, bul
greatly decrease them?
A refutation of this charge from
the Governor in his speeches might
prove of incalculable value just

On July 7, Capt. H. H. Riser
and wife .celebrated the fiftieth
anniversary of their marriage. In
order that the day might be spent
more pleasantly, their children
gaven them a picnic-barbecue
inviting many of their neighbors
and friends to participate with
them on this happy occasion.
Royally did they succeed, for
there were about sixty-five per
sons present. When dinner was
announced all were invited to
partake of the bountifully pre
pared repast which was spread in
the grove near Capt. Riser's home.
All took advantage of this invita
tion, gladly supplying the wants
of the inner man.
An hour or so was spent in
social conversation, the older per
sons talking of by-gone days, the
younger ones indulging in fond
anticipations of the distant future.
Then a few very appropriate
remarks for the occasion were
made by the Rev. C. P. Boozer.
Forcibly he illustrated the duties
and responsibilities resting upon
those who enter tho holy estate of
matrimony, showing that those
who obey the injunctions of this
holy estate, will enjoy the blessings
of a ripe old age, and the reward
of agodly offspring.

The Journey of Life.
Life is a quest. Everywhere
men are seeking for something,
they know not what. They are
not always intelligently seeking.
But they arc never satisfied, and,
paradoxical as it may seem,
no man is so dissatisfied, as is the
man that is satisfied. The mau
who has all that he thought he
wanted is the most miserable of
men. Humanity is in motion. In
some places the movement is very
sluggish ; in some, full of a great
energy : but it is all moving, from
the springs in the mountains to
some unknown ocean. Science'is
a search. Men are not satisfied
merely to take the phenomena of
nature and collate and compare
them and put them into their
respective pigeon-holes. Scientific
men search the heavens with the
telescope* and the minutest atoms
of the earth with the microscope,
dividing and subdividing, ana
lyzing and combining, spending
days and nights in search-foi
what? That they may find that
there is really a universe ; tba
they may find what is that some
thing that makes out of all these
varied phemomena a unity. "I
believe in the universe," s.avs my
correpondent's agnostic friend.
Perhaps that seems to y oh a very
simple creed. But it is a- very
profound one. Man has gone a
long way in thc march toward
truth when he has come really to
believe .that beneath this twisting
and turning, this mutation, this
perpetual variation, these seeming
ly separate phenonomena, there is
a unity-Lyman Abbott.
A Saving Comparison.
-The" salt cellar dates back to
remote times, and that is natural,
since the use of salt is lost in the*
night of time. Homer qualifies it
as divine. Among the Greeks
and Romans, it occupied the place
of honor at banquets. Among the
wealthy, it was of silver or gold,
and was handed down from father
to son. Benvenuto Cellini chased
some for Francis I. that were of
the most exquisite workmanship.
There are likewise some beautiful
specimens in faience, and at the
Louvre may be seen those made at
Orion for the celebrated set called
the service of Diana of Poitiers or
of Henry ll.
Although salt cellars were like
wise made of very common
earthenware, Olivier de la Marche
tells us that, at ordinary repasts,
the salt cellar was often a piece of
bread hollowed out to receive the
