Wore a nan not to marry a
second tine, it might bo con*
eluded that bis first wife bad
given bim a disgust to mar
riage; but by taking a second
wife? be pays the highest com*
pliment to the first, by show

py as a married man. that he
wishes to be sb a second time.
The public printer is greatly
vest. Tho he had lopt off maDj
troubles coramou to the craft, he
has thru the spelling reform had
others heapt upon him. Between
-the sessions of congress the Presi
dent si i pt in a new method of |
spelling all White House docu
ments, and now congress has
stept iii and stopt its use in print
. ing its records. The public print
er is wofully mist and says he
wants to see the methods fixt.
On the first of December there
were 36,194 rural delivery routes
. in operatioD, with 2.200 petitions
for the establishment of routes
pendiug. The major portiou of
the routes now in operation are in
'?. the densely settled portions of the
north and northwest. The sparse
ly settled' south, where they are
most needed, has, comparatively
. speaking, but few free delivery
> routes. South Carolina has only
569 rural delivery routes.
The ginuers' report issued on
Monday by tho census bureau
places the number of bales of cot
ton gi nu ed to December theist
at 10,025,445, against 8,689,663
for the same time last year. Of
this number South Carohua with
her 3,104 ginneries has ginned
only 770,244 bales, while Texas
with 4,176 ginneries has ginned
3,256,545 bales. Notwithstanding
the boll weevils and high-priced
labor, Texas will make about one
third ot the entire crop.
In order to handle the increas
ing volume of business with
greater dispatch and relieve the
congestion that exists all over the
country, the railroads, so experts
. say, will have to increase their
track- facilities. The yards in
many places are'filled with load
ed cars that cannot be moved
promptly because the side-tracks
cannot accommodate them. In
creased rolling stock is not the
greatest need, because the gigan
tic modern frieght engines can
pull thirty^ forty and fifty cars,
owing to the grada. The railroads
.will gradually improve their
equipments to meet the new con
ditions, nut it cannot be done in
Raw hides, leather and all
leather goods aro higher at this
time than for a number of years
before. A traveliug man, who is
tn position to speak with authori
ty, told th9 writer a few days ago
that leather had advanced 25 per
cent since August. Shoes, saddles,
harness, etc., have already ad
yanced, but just watch them go
yjet higher. It is alleged that the
packers are holding back about
.'one-fourth of the supply in order
to force the price up. This, and
the increased demand for leather,
accounts for the advance. A large
quantity is said to be consumed
making * the modern leather
The immigrants who have re
. ce?tly come to this city to make
their home seem thoroughly satis
fied, and without exception they
are proving themselves good work
ers. They are the kind that this
country has long needed and needs
more to-day than at any other
time in its history. Keep up the
good work, Mr. Watson.-Chester
Such encouraging reports from
the new-comers, as the foregoing,
make Edgefield county loug for a
whole ship load of them, i. e., s
- desirable class. In some section?
of the county one can travel for
miles without seeing a white set
- tlement. On the Ninety Six road
for a distance of five oi six mile*
only one or two white persons re
side. The same is true with thc
public road leading weet of Edgt
field. The old couuU and count}
seat would take on new life were
all these partially uninhabited
sections peopled by a thrifty, fru
gal, intelligent class of peoph.
The country schools would bf
strengthened, waste lands reclaim
ed, unimproved lauds developed,
the amount of taxable property
increased and taxes correspond-,
ingly decreased.. There is no
enumerating the advantages that
Fonld accrue through the influx
of a desirable class of immigrants.
