Lecture on Greenland.
On Friday night of this week
there will be a lecture in the Y. M.

Relief Expedition of 1892. Mr.
Entriken will have present a na

bears or walrusses-rand photo
graphs from Greenland. He will
describe his experiences while 'on
the coast of that .ice bound land,
scaling her icy mountains, the
finding of Peary, and the return
voyage.' The, Eskimos will playa
few of their old timey shake down
tunes on their little bazoos. The
lecture ie for the benefit of the Y.
M. C. A.'s-and should be largely
attended. Admission, adults, 25c. ;
Children, 15c. The Eskimos, as
many of our older readers will re
member, used to spell their names
E-s-q-u-i-m-a-u-x, but at a con

termined that, as their sirnames
were so short, they would drop the

How Much Tax..
From Auditor Davis's books we
ascertain that a two mill levy on
the town property of Edgefield
realized last year $80). These fig
ures show that a levy of fwe mills
would probably realize eay $2,000,
enough to run the town, if it were
not for the fact that the town it
Belf would have to do its own
assessing and collecting, which
work is now done by the Auditor
and Treasurer. There would have
to be a town assessor and a town
tax collector, a treasurer, and also
a set of tax books for town pur
poses. An accurate survey of the
incorporation would also have to
be made, and all of these things
will take money. Perhaps it
would require a levy of 7 or 8
mills to get the town going under
the new order of things, that is to
say to have no bar-rooms and no
Dispensary. All these things
should be looked into, talked over,
and thought about before" our
spring electionefor intendants and
wardens. There should be no leaps
in the dark.
A Tribute to Eddie Cochran.
MR. EDITOR : It was with feel
ings of deepest sorrow that I heard
of the recent death of Eddie
Cochran. I knew him to be a de
voted son, a most worthy compan
ion, and consistent Christian. He
was a model youth-a star among
the young men of his community.
While I was his pastor at Reho
both, on .one occasion I called on
the young men present to pledge
themselves not even to enter a
-.bar-room," except in ca*es of ab
solute necessity. Eddie was among
the first to make the pledge. This
he kept faithfully until his death.
Honorable record I What a com
fort it must be to his bereaved pa
rents and loved ones, as they re
flect upon the rectitude of his
course ! May the young men of
our country follow Eddie Cochran's
example, so worthy of their emu

A late issue of the Washington
Post gives some truthful pictures
of the average office seeker in that
"There he goes," said the clerk
at ?he Natioual as one of the green
cars trundled by. "See that man
near the grip? Dispite his com
mon clothes ho has rather a distin
guished air, hasn't he? Well, he is
a gripman, too, and is probably
taking a day off, or else is going
to some other part of the line to
meet his car. I have known him
four years, and always liked him.
He is an example of what happens
to men who come to Washington
seeking office. I first met him in
the early part of March, 1889.
President Harrison had been sworn
in, and the city was filled with
those who wanted pap. This man
was from the West. He stopped
with us. His coat was of the
Prince Albert cut and made of the
finest diagonal. His trousers were
light in color, and he wore tan
gloves. The suit could not have
cost less than $1,?5. He fiad money
and spent it like water.
He wanted one of the larger con
sulates, and had a valise full of
letters. He didn't get it, of course,
and gradually became shabbier
and shabbier. I saw him late in
the summer, wearing a battered
straw hat, and his lines had evi
dently been cast in hard places.
Then I saw him swinging to the
car grip. He must be faithful to
his work, because he has held the
job ever since. He is a great deal
better than many of those who
come upon a like errand, as well
as more fortunate. Generally when
they go broke they put in a month
or two holding up such friends as
come to town, and when these play
out they drift into even more rep
rehensible ways .of making a- liv
ing. They are generally ashamed
to go home, you sea. Not one of
them ever leaves his town without
assuring all of his acquaintances
that he has a dead sure thing, and
they are afraid of endless jeering
if they return.
"It is a dreadful thing," said a
.Georgian yesterday, as he aimed
at a cuspidor in the hotel corridor
and missed it a foot, "to think
how little it takes to dash a fel
low's hopes to earth when the frui
tion of .his desires . depends upon
the temper of one man who holds
a position like that which Presi
dent Cleveland fills so completely.
Here I am, and I want an office.
It is not a big thing, not more
than $3,000 a year, yet the com
forts of my family and ability to
clear myself of debt depend upon
my success. It is very important
to me. I have spent money to
come here, and spend money to
stay here. When the Executive
reaches my papers he may not feel
well. There may be a clot of un
digested mustard upon nis stomach
or he may have a slight cold in
the head. Up I go 1 If I had this
thing to undergo again I would
father plow seven days in the
week and feed the mules myself."
"All things come to him who
wait;"but the trouble is starvation
is one of them,'

"to the victors belong the spoils."
Colonel Calhoun Caughman.
Washington, P. C., Evening News,
.I met in the lobby of the
Metropolitan hotel last night a
courtly young southerner, who
cheerily chatted with a number of
friends. It was the Hon. Calhoun
Caughman, of South Carolina.
He is a near relative of John C.
Calhoun and married a grand
niece of Robert Y. Hayne, whose,
debate with Webster placed him
in the foremost rank of American
orators. Colonel Caughman is
himself eloquent, and his style of
oratory is ta^a degree dramatic
and not utprVe that of William
C. Preston. His voice is a natu
ral tenor and possesses a captivat
A Boy's Fissay on Dogs and Cats.
I'd rather have a dog than a
cat any day. Dogs can race cats,
they can race other dogs, they can
race boys or anything. Nobody
ain't scared of a cat A mouse is ;
but not if it ain't somewheres that
it can't get out of, or a rat either.
A dog can make a cat dead if he
bites her enough. When he comes
in the yard he can make her tail
look like Christmas tree. He can
make her fix her back like a camel.
I ain't afraid of thieves; but
thieves are afraid ot dogs. If a thief
comes where a dog can get him,
he'll run like fun ; but the dog
won't r an. A dog can watch a house
better than a policeman. He won't
let the man that owns it come in
the back yard in the middle of the
night, but a cat would. If a man
or any other thief was to sneak in,
would a cat care? She'd go over the
fence quick. That's wbatf A dog
knows when you're home from
school. He ain't asleep, then. He
has fun with old hats if you give,
him one. You've got to pay
for keeping him, but you don't a
cat, - because a dog's some good and
a cat ain't. I'd rather have a dog.

A Hairbreadth Escape.
A bad accident which was one
of the narrowest escapes from
instant death possible, happened
at Vandemore, Plamice county,
N. C., on Saturday. As Mr.
Morrissey's son, Coolidge, about
15 years of age, was cutting wood,
his little brother ran under the
axe as it was descending and re
ceived the blow on the top of his
head. The axe glanced and cut
out a piece of the skull bone one
and or^-nalf inches square so that
puhation of the brain could be
discerned. Dr. G. S. Attmore, of
Stonewell, attended to the wound.
The piece of bone was left out
but the cut portion ?f the scalp
was placed in position again and
three days after the accident Dr.
Attmore pronounced his littie
patient ina fair way to per fee
recovery, hts youthfulness being
in favor of such a result.

The office seekers here are grow
