South Carolina Day a
WARM WORDS OF WELCOME.
Major "Wm. T. Gary's Address
and Lieut. Gov. Gary's
For the second day in the his
tory of the Augusta Exposition
Company have the legislators of
South Carolina been its guests.
Five years ago the members of the
General Assembly of the great old
state journeyed from their capital
to the city on tho banks of the
Savannah that is proud?to acknow
ledge that she owes much of her
success and her prosperity to
South Carolina. In the walks of
public life in Augusta may be
seen the son of the yeomanry of
South Carolina who has left the
quiet of his country home, to enter
the more exciting strife of city
life aud help build up the com
mercial and industrial prosperity
of the great city of the Savannah
valley. At many a fireside in old
Augusta sits the queen of home
won from the sunny hills and shady
vales across the river, inculcating
in the young minds about her the
sweet thoughts of religion and the
proud spirit of patriotism that are
the inheriteuce of every South
erner. It is no wonder then that
the hearts and homes of Augusta
were thrown open to the people
of South Caralina and that the
welcome extended to them was as
cheery and warra as the bright
sunshine of nature herself which
beamed like a benediction upon
the mingling of the people, who
though separated by state lines
are bound by the same destiny,
. . . ..
ot the pleasures of tho day.
RECEIVING TIIE GUESTS.
Before the special train on the
Port Royal road from Columbia
via, the South Bound, had arrived
at the union depot the committee
of directors of the Augusta Ex
position Company had all the
legislators decorated with the
badge of distinction that entitled
them to the freedom and the
courtesies of the Exposition.
At the depot they were met by
the officers and directors of the
Exposition Company, and headed
by the Exposition band ware es
corted to Broadway and from there
cars took them to the Exposition.
In the Music Hall a crowd gathered
to hear the words of welcome and
the hearty response. On the stage
were Lieutenant Governor E. B.
Gan, Hon. Ira Jones, Speaker
of the House Maj. W. T.Gary
and President Patrick Walsh,
besides a large gathering of the
senators and representatives.
After selections by the band
President Walsh received the
visitors in a few words and in
introduced Hon. W. T. Gary, who
delivered the address of welcome.
Mr. Walsh said :
Ladies and gentlemen, Lieuten
ant Governor, and Gentlemen of
the General Assembly of South
Carolina: As President of the
Augusta Exposition Company, it
is my pleasing duty to welcome
you to the city of Augusta and
to the Exposition. This Exposi
tion is not the work pf the people
of Augusfa or of Georgia ajone-^an
equal share of the honor belongs
to South Carolina, ycur state,
which has contributed an essential
part in its completeness. We point
with pride to this Fxposition as
an illustration of thu wonderful
resources and industrial progress
of the South. We p oint to it with
pleasure, becuuse it exemplifies
what we can do if we diversify our

preferment, and he has worthily
discharged every public duty en
trusted to him by the people of
this county and by the govern
ment of the United States-Hon.
W. T. Gar)', who will deliver tbe
address of welcome.
MAJ. GARY'S ADDRESS.
After another selection by the
band, Maj. Gary rose, and in
earnest words eloquently welcomed
the Legislature of South Carolina.
"Represen^utives of the South
Carolina Assembly, Ladies and
"It would indeed be a jold heart
that would not be moved by this
high testimonial of praise that
has just been accorded me by the
president of the Augusta Exposi
tion, and it is.with sincere grati
tude I thank him for his kind
words, hoping that I may continue
to tread that path of life which
will always place me in a position
to deserve such praise.
"I welcome you gentlemen of
South Carolina, io our city in be
half of the Agricultural society, in
behalf of the city of Augusta, and
in behalf of the Exposition Com
pany ; we throw open our doors and
receive you PS ono of us, trusting
that as of yore we are one people
with but one land.
" "Tis an honor to represent the
merchants and business men of
Augusta, for they are known to
you as well as to myself, for their
high standard of integrity, honesty
and uprightness in all dealings.
Tneir hospitalii}' is boundless as
their great future.
"We .welcome you to Augusta
and the Empire state of the South
knowing that you take a deep and
sincere interest in our prosperity
and are always ready and willing
to extend your hands and hearts
whenever your sister state calls
upon you. When the Augusta
Exposition was first talked of
there were nothiug but words of
discouragement from ali sides; the
croakers aid all in their little way
to cast a damper on this greaten
t?rnriRP and PTO?1" 1 "??'
V : lt*
South Carolina and ueorgia nave
"We throw open the portals of
our city, Exposition and state, and
welcome you as Joseph welcomed
his brothers in Egypt. I know tbe
sons of the noble sires who fol
lowed Marion in the swamps of
the Peedee aud know that the sun
light *of God never shone on a
braver or truer race of men ; they
are ever courageous and intrepid
in the time of war and in the time
of peace they have stood by the
commonwealth in a manner which
has commanded the respect and
admiration of the whole country.
"South Carolina, one of the
grandest states in the Union
whose clime and every natural
aspect vies with the garden spot
of the world stands the peer of all
has caused the Italian to lesve his
beautiful sunsets, the German to
forget his Faderland, and the
Swiss te depert his grand and
glorious scenery. Her sont aro as
patriotic as ever breathed aj;d are
equal to any in culiuie^'aiid re
finement that the world produces.
"She is to-day represented by as
brave, noble and patriotic men as
ever represented her. These young
spirits knew that she was not to
remain as a prisoner and valiantly
came forward to see that she should
occupy the exalted position which
she is entitled to. They are all
saviours of their country and are
drserving of Ihe praise (bat has
been heapeh upon them.
"You need have no fear of South
Carolina when in the hands of
such able mni and her future is
sure to be replete with prosperity
and plenty. She is all right and
will continue so from now on to
"It was mine to live in the
hallowed sphere of that patriot,
statesmen and scholar. Picken?,
aud it is now my lot not to bo
separted entirely from you, for the
ties that still are yours are mine,
and the patriotic feeling that in
spires you truly inspires me. God
Almighty has created South
Carolina and Georgta side by and
thus it shall forever be. Both aro
equal in gradeur, and both have
the samo civilization and same
education. Our only difficulty is
we do not know where tho dividing
lino begins and whore it ends.
"Did either over fail to afcaist or
help tho other in the time of need?
May we never live to see the day
when such ties as those that now ?
exist shall be in any way outraged.
To Make it more forcible I might
use tbat mandate which we*' are
all familiar with. Whom God has .
joined together let no man put
"Our people love you and are
always delighted when you honor
them with your presence and it is ;
a great pleasure that you afford
them on this occasion. ' Our busi
ness men welcome you and the
whole city rejoices at your arrival, j
"The fair maidens of our city,
the like of whom cannot be found ]
in any other state in the Union,
join in the welcome that is ac
corded you. What shall I compare [
the maidens of Augusta to, the
lily with all its grandeui and ]
stateliness or the rose with its
beauty, grace and sweet perfume;
neither one, for with all their ;
beauty and loveliness they have
not the maiden's soul. They are
the perfect work made in the like
ness of Him.
"Like Dido, on your departure .
they shall staud with the willow in
their hand and waive you their
love, hoping that your may soon
return to Carthage."

that our state is the equal of the

His Wit Saved Him.
Although it is a familiar saying
that an Irishman is always spoil

kind of fighting to which even the
brave sons of Erin are sometimes
averse-that is duelling. The fol
lowing story well illustrates this

FOR THE THOUGHTFUL
If brains could have saved the
world Solomon would have done it.
Every man has a religion.
Would that every man had a Christ.
Be right with God, and it will
not take much to make you happy.
Many a man's religion boiled
down, would be found to be noth
ing more than notion.
It will not help your own crop
any to throw stones at your neigh
bor's truck patch.
No oue can have a deep trust in
God who does not read his word by
the help of the spirit.
If noise was religion a Chinese
joss house would be one of the
holiest places on earth.
The trial that God sends us is
always a blessing, whether we
know it at the time or not.
It is about as wise to sit on a
limb of a lreer and saw it off as to
worry about things we cannot help.
Tendency forecasts destiny. A
tree leaning east never falls west.
A tree not only lies as it falls, but
it falls as it leans.
A besetting sin is like the flaw
in Achilles armor. It is the ex
posed spot in which Satan lodges
a poisoned arrow. Put on the whole
armor of God.
Three Good Strokes.

'the third was that I got rid of

A mau who has called at the
White House several times to bor

is called a crank. That is the way it
goes. The youth who wanted to

was also pronounced a crank. TL J

give good ground for being sus

It is said that the assets of the

disappearing mysteriously at the
rate of about $10,000 a day. They
were counting as assets a lot of
property which is claimed by con
tractors, who are getting away
with it as fast as they can. They
are doing it so effectually that the
managers are still harboring the
hope that in their hustling energy
they will not get away with the

EDIBILITY OF ANTS.-The formic
acid of ants is said to impart to
them an agreeable flavor. An en
tomologist recollects when himself
and boy companions relished a
"lemonade" of crushed ante mixed
with sugar and water ; and a cor
respondent of Insect Life refers to
a man who is in the habit of eat
ing large black ants from rotten
wood. Another man traced to little
red ants a pleasant acid taste of a
piece of pie eaten in the dark.
DUALITY OF THE MIND.-The
idea is held by Dr. B. W. Richard
son that the two lobes of the cere
brum give every person two dis
tinct brains ; and that any congre
gation of human beings must be
reckoned at twice its individual
number before its mental constitu
tion and strength can be properly
appraised. The two brains are
never exactly balanced. They
sometimes work together, some
times diversely; and when one is
disordered there may be tendencies
to insanity, with lucid intervals if
the other is sound. Complete
change of personality may result
from weakening the stronger or
strengthening the weaker.

dismay was caused in England
during the recent hot weather by
the appearance of blood stains in
bread, and also in boiled potatoes,
rice, and other farinaceous sub

this somewhat rare phenomenon
was regarded as a miracle, but mod
ern science has shown that it is
due to the growth of a microscopic
plant. The true explanation of the
terrifying blotches was first point
ed out by a Paduan naturalist in
1819. The same production was
seen near Berlin in 1848, at Rouen
by Dr. Camille Montagne in the
same year, and was first recorded
in Britain in 1853. About 1886 an
epidemic visitation on the Conti

VOLCANOES OF THE U. S.-Ex
cluding Alaska, the United States
may be said to be non-volcanic,
states Mr. Ralph S. Farr, but it
has not been so long. A chain of
volcanoes extends from southern
South America into Mexico, then
there is a large break, and the in
terrupted chain begins again in
Alaska, curves southward, and
joins the chain of Japan. The in
termediate non-volcanic area has
just emerged from an area of stu
pendous activity. Future resump
tion of such activity is not im
probable, for in the West are vol
canoes so recent as, like Mt.
Shasta, to retain their conical
form, and some of these perhaps
are no more dormant than was
Vesuvious befoie the fateful year
'79, when it buried Pompeii and
Herculaneum beneath the most
terrible storm of stones and ashes
ever known to man. In the Canon
of the Colorado, in the deserts of
Nevada and Utah, and in New
Mexico, exist small lava flows that
must have been erupted in recent
years, probably since the white
man's discovery of the continent,

the part of other gentlemen pass
