There are a set of malicious,
prating, prudent gossips, both
male and female? who murder
characters to kill time; a.nd will
rob a yoong fellow' of his good

the valoe of it--SHERIDAN.

local capital is invested ia any in

The public roads, in the main
would-be very good but for the
deep holes that have been cut by
the headily loaded wagons. A
small squad of convicts aud a road
machine could rrpidly fill these
holes, covering a -great number of
mi?fis-in a day. If it is possible to
do so. the'Supen isor should*put a
squad at work on the road6 lead
ing;??t from the county Beat,' over
which there ie BO much traveling.
To work them now would be ."a
stitch in time.''
* A-n-along the line, from the
governor down to the dispenser*
and consumers of liquor, the
pesky little request blanks are
eau si og a world of trcuble. JD
many sections every conceivable
pretext is being advanced as a
.good and sufficient reason for din
continuing their UB?. . However,
Governor Heyward, with bis
usual firmneei in euch mutters,
has declared that the law must be
enforced and that he Will remove

About thu easiest and most
effective way for the Chinese to
induce" Uncle Sam to modify his
exclusion act ia for them to sup
ply the demand in America for
cheap, unskilled labor. The lum
bermen and navai stores camps
in and around Gainesville, Fla.,
owing to the scarcity and high
price of colorod labor, are now ex
perimenting with Chinese labor
as.a substitute*. About sixty have
been brought from the Pacific
. coast for this purpose. Teeming
millions of Chinese could be given
profitable employment : in the
south if they could be taught to
gr?w'cott?n as successfully as they
produce silk iu their , native land.
Statistics show that Georgia and
South Carolina are now using
more commercial fertilizers than
were used by the whole southern
Btates ten years ago. ^Wnile these
enormous fertilizer bills tue a
heavy tax upon farmers yet- the
v yield per acre in cotton has al?o
been greatly increased. OwiDg to
a more general adoption of the in
: tensive plan .of farmirjg, the next
ten years will probably show a
_ still larger use of commercial fer
tilizers. The greatest expense in
growing cotton is the labor, and
experience has proven that there
i is more net profit realized from
planting a well-fertilized small
area than from a poorly-fertilized
The officials cf the great life in
surance companies, some i-f whoi
are now.under indictment, littJ
thought, when they contribute
so largely.to the Republican cam
paign fund and otherwise misar
plied money that had been eu
trusted to their keeping, that th
lime light of a searching investi
gation would reveal these tran6
actions to the public gaze. The ex
. poeure of these questionable, i
not fraudulent, transactions
should impress everyone that
honesty is the bast policy. One
may commit a questionable deed
and congratulate himself that the
public knows nothing of it, but
. by-and-by in some unforseen and
almost unaccountable way it is
disclosed to the gaze of the world.

Owing to coiitiDued rains the
farmers generally are late in pre
paring their- lands for planting.
It is uot only true in this section
but is the case throughout the cot
ton be't. Large portions of Ala
bama and Louisiana have
been flooded, hundreds of acres,
so dispa'tches statf, being now
under water. Even if he is late be
cause of the unfavorable condi
tions, the wi Be and prudeut farm
er will not plant without making
prober preparation. Do not be in
too great a hurry to put seed in
the ground. Germination will not
take place ur til the soil becomes

since labor baa become scarce and

Smoking among women in Eng
land is said to be increasing at nh
alarming rate. It is authoritative
ly stated that some cf the rail
roads, yielding to a popular de
mand, now provide smokiug ca"re
for women just as for men. Of
course, no one will deny thai
women have as much right, from
? moral standpoint, to smoke ns
men, yet there is au abhoient and
an irreconcilable incongruity
about ?eeing n sweet, cultured and
beautiful young lady's fingers
stained with- nicotine or having
the odor of tobacco about her per
son. Nobody expects any more of
men who are made of the comraou
^?t kind of clay but they do ex
pect more of ladies who are crea-:
ted but "little lower thou the
angels." -The girl who, with cigar
in hand, puffs the smoke from her
ruby lips and has itcurliug grace
fully about her face may be ever
so beautiful but ?he is asa rose
that has loBt its perfume.
Foreigners Flock to America.
The'influxof immigrants reach
ed the high-water mark last week
when ab->ut 12,000 foreigners ar
rived in New York in a single day
to cast their fortunes in this land
of liberty, more than 2,?00 mnk
iug the voyage on one vessel.
After all, bow few of these people
ever realize what American life is
in its truest Bense. The vastfna
jori'y of immigrants tike up their
abode in the foreign colonies of
the congested cities of the uorth
and west where the manuer of
living is not very uulike that in
t'se large cities cf the old country,
tl" thpy would have a new heaven'
and a new earth revealed to them
fbey ?boula pitch their tents in
tt?e iutefior?-in tho south, foi in?
stance-where thpy can' inhale
pure, invigorating air and bask in
the glofio?? stt?3hi?e twelve
months in the year. Furthermore,
in the distinctively agricultural
regions greaser opyortuuity is
given for the development and
growth of these lives that have
beeu necessarily dwarfed by rea
son of their past environment. j
The immigrant who lodgss-in
the scums of a large city, whether
that city be in the north,'south or
weet, never, realizes what a grand
and glorious, privilege it is to be
an Ameriman citizen in the
I broadest and fullest mean-.ng^?f'
the term. It would be a work of
mercy to direct these foreigners to
more wholesome climes than the
densely populated cities when they
step ashore from the trans-Atlar.
