Home with love in it, is a kind j

life are those when' the heart is
full of love, and those hours are
almost as sweet in the recollection
as in the present experience. In

Public men aretargets to be
shot at, belied, pursued, misinter
preted. I was surprised to read
what Macaulay wrote in one of his
intense sentence after all his
bright carreer in the English
Parlianment and after. being
renowned the world over bji all
who could admire fine writing and
great thought-Macaulay says :
"Every friendship which a man
may have becomes precarious as
soon as he engages in politics."
Daniel "Webster, after his wonder
ful career and in the close of his
lifo, writes : "If I were to live my
life over agrin, with my present
experience, I would under no con
sideration allow myself to enter
-public life. The man who serves
the public most faithfully
receives no adequate raward.
In my own history those acts
which have been before God most
disinterested, and the least stained
by selfish considerations have
been precisely those for which I
have beeu most freely abused. No,
no, have nothing to do with poli
tics. Sell your iron, eat the bread
of independence, support your
family with the rewarde of honest
toil, do your duty as a private
citizen to your country, but let
politics alone. It is a hard life
a thankless life. I have had in
tne course of my political life,
which is not a short one, my full
share of ingratitude, but the un
kindest cut of all, the shaft that
has sunk the deepest in my heart,
has been the refusal of this ad
ministration to grant my request
foran office of small pecuniary
consideration for my son." That
is the testimony of a man who
ought to know. My fri ends, better
stay down than be shot down. He

THE Trustees announce to the pub
lic that this school will open on
Monday, Sept. 4,1893,
and continne ten months, forty weeks,
with a recess of one week at Christ
mas. There will be three departments,
each carefully graded :
The Primary, embracing 2 years.
The Intermediate, embracing 4 years.
The Academic, embracing 4 years.
Provision is also made for Music and
Art Departments, under competent
teachers. Arrangements for studies
higher than the Academic will be made
hereafter, if it be deemed best to do so.
The rates of tuition will be as follows :
In the Primary Department, first
and second years, per month.. $ 1.00
In the Intermediate Department,
1st and 2nd years, per month..
In the Intermediate Department
3rd and 4th years, per month..
In the Academic Department, 1st
and 2nd years, per month. 3.00
In the Academic Department, 3rd
and 4th years, per month. 4.00
In the Music Department, per
In the Art Department, per
From these charges will be deduct
ed the pro rata amount allowed for
each pupil from the public school fund.
The trustees have committed this
school to the management of
Dr. -L R. GWALTNEY.
He will be aided in each department
by competent teachers. It will be seen
that the basis of financial support
which has been in operation for sev
eral years has been abandoned, the
trustees having fully decided that it
is better to have fixed rates of tuition
for all pupils. If the citizens of Edge
field will heartily standby "The In
stitute," they will have a good school
in which they may take a commenda
ble pride. The Principal is well known.
He returns to Edgefield to become the
pastor of the Baptist Church, and to
give his matured experience to the
work of educating our boys and girls.

For Inventions Procured by the
PRESS CLAIM COMPANY,
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Gov
ernment is that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit ef v?lua
Lle inventions because of the incompetency or inattention of the at
torneys employed to obtain their patents. Too much care cannot be
exercised in employing competent and reliable solicitors to procure
patents, for the value of a patent depends greatly, if not entirely, upon
the care and skill of the attorney.
With the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless
attorneys, and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid
patents, THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel
expert in patent practice, and is therefore prepared-to
Obtain Patents, Conduct Interferences, Make Special Examinations,
[Prosecute Rejected Cases, Register Trade-Marks
and Copyrights, Rer.ler Opinions as to Scope
and Validity of i-atents, Prosecute and
Defend Infringement Suits, etc]
If you have an invention on hind, send THE PRESS CLAIMS
COMPANY a sketch or photograph thereof, together with abrief de
scription of the important features, and you will at once be advised
as to the best course to pursue. Models are not necessary
unless the invention is of a complicated nature. If others are infring
ing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by others,
submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the
