A gentleman who lives at Williston,
S. C., in our office one day of last week,
made this statement: "During Prof.
Bailey's seven years of teaching in
Williston more houses were built than

Mr. J, O. Atkinson, who works the

The name of J. L. Smith is present
ed this week to the voters of Edgelield
county for the House of Representa
tives. Mr. Smith is a e:ood citizen and
the fact that be has made a success of
his own affairs-the surest and safest
test of ability-shows that he is worthy
to be entrusted with the affairs of oth
ers. We do not mean to say that Mr.
Smith is the only good man in the race
-there are other pebbles on the beacb
but as ins candidacy was announced
so late, only three weeks before the
election, the only way to give his vir
tues equal publicity with those of the
other candidates is to put them in
print. And there is one thing we are
specially authorized to promise on the
part of Mr. Smith : If elected to the
House of Representatives by the peo
ple of Edgelield county he will not do
any "frolicking," either on the floor of
the House, in the rotunda, in the base
ment, nor anywhere else on the Capa
toline hill, nor yet in the streets of the
city, or any other place, not that he is
too old to frolic or physically unable
to frolic, but because he is not of the
frolicking diathesis, to use his own
strong and vigorous Anglo Saxon : "I
am not a frolicking man,"

What an Orangehrug Paper
Says of Prof. John J.
Prof. J. J. McMahan is a cand
idate for superintendent of
education and wc ope that he will
be successful in the race. Mr.
McMahan is now about 32 years
old and was born and reared iu
I Fairfield county. He was born of
ondof the best families of the
state and was trained by a good
and pious mother in the way he
should go. He lost his father
when 3reta boy and accordingly
had a forecast of a most noble
mother and two kind and affect
ionate sisters. His handy-work
was well done and he succeeded in
entering the South Carolina
college when about 18 years old.
Though a country boy, by hard
work and attentiveness to duty he
forged to the front and graduated
at the head of his class. On account
of the stand which he took in his
classes, and high character, he was
awarded one of the scholarships,
which only go to the best students,
and after graduation was elected
one of the tutors to teach in his
college. While thus engaged in
instructing others he did not|
cease to study and with highest
honors took an A. M. He was
afterwards elected one of the
adjunct professors of the university
which position he held for several
years. Last year he was again
elected assistant professor of j
English, which position he volun
tarily surrendered to enter the
race for the position which he isl
so eminently qualified to fill and
to which he should be elected.
His whole existence seems to be
wrapped np in a desire to dissemin
ate knowledge, a wish to broaden
and enlighten the minds of his
fellow-creatures. No man ever
had a higher purpose in seeking
an office, because there he believes
he can best usa the powers of his]
head and heart tb ad/ance the
education of the poor youths of)
thia state., becaune he known, as j
few know, "their crying need.
We honestly believe that Prof.
McMahan is by far the most compe
tent man for the place and no man
has a higher moral character. We
should honor the young man who
has thus risen from a country
fanner-boy to a brilliant educator,
whose lite and character is above
reproach. No man can point to
one single low act or deed of his,
but he has alwp.ye been high in his)
conduct and in his dealings with
men. We kuow John J. McKahn,
we know him to be a honest, fear
less, brainy roan j knowing him as
we do, we bespeak for him the
votes of our fellow-citszens.- I
DE E DED TO SATAN,

Property lo the Devil.
J Thoro ip only one spot on tho
earth's surface that has actually
been willed, deeded and bequeath
to his satanic majesty. This spot
lies four railes and a half south of
Helsingfurs. A. few 3'ears ago
Lara Pluilariene died iu the little
torn on Pielisjaravi, in the above
named country, leaving con
siderable property in the shape of
landed estate. How he had come
into possession of so much land
no one seemed to know, but as he
was a very bad citizen it was
generally admitted that he was in
league with Wintahausu. (Satan,)
and that they had many business
deals with each other.
This somewhat startling opinion
was verified when in the home of
old Huilarine was found a box
containing a certified warranty
deed inclosed therein, which deec .
ed to Statan all his earthly possess
ions. The will was to the same
effect. The family have repeatedly
tried to break the will, but so far
have been unsuccessful. Thus
the records plainly show that his
sulphuric majesty has a legal
right and title to some excellent
grounds in the near vicinity of
The simple people of the
neighborhood have changed the
course of the Toad which formerly
skirted the Huilariene homestead
and declare that they would not
enter the possessions of Ststan
& Co for all the money that the
three estates would bring.-Pear

Since the fates have decreed
that Porto Rico is soon to be
annexed to United States, it is well
to go back and review some of the
information which we have already
gathered in regard to our future
Porto Rico contains exactly 3,670
square miles, which gives it one
four teenth tho area of Cuba .and
four times the area of Rhoc'e Is
Its population is 800,000. This
includes 300,000 negroes. Its
chief cities are San Juan, Ponsc,
and San Germain.
Porto Rico's principal imports
are coffee, sugar, molasses, and
tobacco. With respect to tl
climate oi the island, it is com
parativelyjmild, and c*~ be eae?i
endured even ?D 'jaids :mmer by
inhabitants of the temperate zone.
With respect to internal im
provements Porto Rico has 470
miles of telegraph and 137 milos of
railway. She has also 170 miles of
railway under construction.
Poto Rico is naturall}' one of
the richest countries on the globe.
Its exporte for the past year
aggregated in value $14,600,000.
Under favorable conditions these
figures can be easiW quadiupled.
It is said that the finest Havana
cigars are made from Porto Rico's
tobacco, and that the coffee pro
duced in the western part of the
island is without equal.
Thus, in exchange for the
blessings of Anglo-Saxon civiliza

upon Porto Rico, it seems that we
