Be Given to Hospitality.
True hospitality, says an ex
change, does not consist in the mere
fulfillment of social obligations. It
is a.?ar holier, nobler thing than
this. It is the cordial heartfelt wel
come of a friend to our [table
and rooftree, without counting the
cost. TheJady of the house in for
mer times was true to her name as
the dispenser of bread. There was
always room at her table for an ex
tra guest:. The fare was plainer than
it is to-day, but the welcome was
cordial, the hospitality spontaneous.
It is an advantage to children to
see guests frequently in this way.
?No social training can take the
place of thal; which a child receives
in the house of parents who delight
to entertain their friends. House
holds, like individuals, become ec
centric and narrow when kept too
close to their family group.

a number of hieroglyphs there are
several well-formed letters, but thus
far we have been unable to decipher
the "handwriting upon the egg."

does not foretell the coming of an

Card of Thanks.
I take this means of publicly
thanking my neighbors and friends
for their kindness during the late
illness of my wife. .1 shall never
cease to be grateful for their as
sistance and sympathyduring the
very trying experience through
which I have passed. I am under |
lasting obligations tc? them and shall |
ideavor to repay them whenever an
opportunity presents itself1. Again
I offer my sincere thanks.

Colliers, S. C.
Will Attend Encampment.
Monday next Capt. W. A. Collett j
and his men will leave for the an
nual encampment, which will be
held this year in Columbia. A spe
cial meeting of the company will
be held in the armory Thursday
night and a full attendance is urged.
Every young man who desires to go
with the company to Columbia
I should attend the meeting Thurs
day'nigbt. While the military du
ties on the encampment are heavy,
this is offset by the pleasure and
diversion that it affords. Ten days
I at the capital city will be an ex
ceedingly pleasant outing, especial-1
ly, for the young men who'have been
closely confined in stores and offi
ces. We trust that the company
will carry a large number o^f repre
I sentatiye young men, so as to make
a creditable appearance among the
other companies of the regiment as
was done last ye.ir. Attend the
meeting Thursday r ight.
Maps For ?schools.
In order to do thorough and effec
tive work, every teacher ought to
have, the school room supplied with
charts and maps. Some trustees set
apart a portion of the-* school fund
for purchasing such supplies or
equipments, while others are indif
I ferent and do not seem to realize or
appreciate their value. Any teacher
or trustee who will write to State
Superintendent of Education Swear
ingen, as shown by the following!
clipping from the Columbia Record,
can procure a valuable map free:
"Through the courtesy of Senator
[Tillman., the State superintendent
of education, Mr. J. E. SwearingetL*, |
has received from the interior de
partment a number of copies of a
very valuable map of the ^United
States, in size five by seven feet. As
long as these last Mr. Swearingen
will send copies to schools having
good buildings which make applica
tion for them."

Time Enough Yet
Several corn growers have report-1
ed that their "pet" acre has been se
riously damaged by the continued
rains. Some have replanted with a
hoevj?*hile others have plowed the
first corn up and planted again.
None should be discouraged, for
there is yet ample time- to make a
full crop. It is possible for the late
crop to make the largest yield. No
one knows what the next two months
have in store by way of rainfall and
droughts. Don't give up the ship.
Tea Farming in Carolina.
The proposed protective tariff on
tea becomes laughable when it is
considered that there is only one tea J
farm within Senator Tillman's ju
risdiction, and this kept going only
through the aid of the agricultural
department, which operates an ex
periment station in connection with
it, and so lessens the expense of con
ducting it. The total output pf
this farm, after twenty years of ex
perimentation, amounts to approxi
mately 10,000 pounds annually. The j
total consumption of tea in the Uni
ted States, is about 100,000,000
pounds a year. The proposition,
then, is to tax the millions of domes
tic consumers $10,000,000 yearly,
in order that the profits of this lone
South Carolina plantation may be
increased one thousand. That's all.
Races at Trenton.
On Saturday July 3, I will give
at my new half-mile regulation track
a race meet beginning at 3 o'clock
p. m. I will serve a hash dinner
for the accommodation of those who
live at a distance (and others of
course who desire it) who will very
likely prefer coming to the track in
the cool of the morning,and witness
ing the exercising and working of
the horses to enter the races for the
afternoon. There will be about six
running races and six or eight trot-1
ting races. A full programme will
be published next week. Keep the
day eminently in your minds, and
be on hand. I especially hope the
ladies will be as liberal in their at
tendance this time as heretofore.!
We hope to make this an annual af
fair, and with some additional at-1
tractions, viz., a pavillion with mu
sic and dancing, so I shall try very
faithfully to make my first date, Ju
ly 3rd, a success.
