The season is backward. Not since

stands of cotton are very irregular.
In some portions of the county they
are good, at other places indifferent,
and at still other places there are none
at all. The corn crops are not much.
Of course there is time enough for
both these crops to come out and make
good yields. One redeeming feature
of the outlook is that there is an in
creased acreage of corn in the county

is ont of sight.

Anger a Disease.
An English journal thus com
ments on the injurious effects of
anger: "Anger serves the unhappy
mortal who indulges in much the
same wayas intoxicante constantly
taken do the inebriate, it grows
into a sort of disease, which has
various and terrible results. Sir
Richard Quain said, not long ago :
He is a man very rich indeed in
physical power who can afford to
be [angry.' This is true. Every
time a man becomess 'white' or red
with anger he is in danger of his
life. The heart and brain are the
organs mostly affected when fits of
passion are indulged in. Not only

Pears o re more widely cultivated
in the State, perhaps, than any
other orchard fruit, and the
reported prevalence of "blight" on
the trees is, therefore, a matter of
very genera: interest. We printed
a few weeks ago the testimony of
a pear grower VA one of the Western
States, Eis;-:ouri or Arkansas, that
he had found the administration
of calomel to the sick and threa
tened trees a certain cure and
preventive of the disease, and the
owners of blighted orchards in
this State might profit by his ex
perience. His plan, as described,
was simply to make an incision
two or three inches long through
the bark of the +runk if the whole
tree was affected, cr of the affected
limb, and insert three to five
grains of calomel, carefully closing
the wouud and covering it to ex
clude the air and insure healing.
This inexpensive and simple
treatment, employed when the
leaves were young, it was stated,
stopped the progress of thu disease
and thoroughly protected the tree
from further attacks for one ur two
years, Sound trees so "vaccinated"
escaped the infection altogether.

was added, will protect au acre of

The large crowd of admiring
friends that gathered at Central

will be long before those who were
present on this occasion wiil quito
forget ;he beauty of the spectacle.
The interior of the sacred edifice
waB almost hidden by the prodigal
display of nature's fairest orna

graceful palms and tall standards
of lilies, while long trails of feath

starry white blossoms hid the
chancel rail from sight.

THERE are schools and schools, but there are some reasons why you should
patronize the Johnston Institute:
1st.-Johnston is a healthful location, on the famous "Ridge," which com
prises portions ol' Aiken, Edgeiield, Lexington and Saluda Counties. It
is absolutely free from malaria. The same diurnal range ol" temperature
as Santa Barbara, Cal.
2nd.-Johnston is a moral community with few allurements to vice. No bar
rooms or vicious company to degrade the students.
3rd.-The Superintendents conduct two boarding halls-Pickens Hall for
young men and Rebecca Motte Hall for young ladies. In these Halls the
students are under restrictions and give their undivided time to their
4th.-The lnstituteis conducted ona Military basis. Boys are permitted, but
not required, to wear uniforms. This uniform is cheap, handsome and
durable. Students are taught to obey, as one can never rule well until
he lirst learns to obey well.
5th.-Our course of study is thorough, practical and progressive. We lit stu
dents for life, as College Diplomas are issued to those who deserve them.
6th.-We have Special Departments oiferiug superior instructions in Book
keeping, Painting and Music. Call and see the character of work done.
Our rooms are open to inspection.
7tb.-We have a bigschool. There is somethingjstimulatingand inspiring about,
large schools, because children learn not only from books but by ab
Sth.-We have eleven teachers, S. M. Martin, John Lake, A. J. Reamy, C. C.
