The commencement exercises of
this Institution, of which the Keowee
Courier makes briuf mention in its
last issue, are described as highly in
teresting, and of which we hope to
hear some of the particulars through
our intelligent correspondent from
Prosperity, who was a participant as
well as happy eye-witness.
In this connection we beg to make
amends to our young friend, J. B.
O'Neall Holloway, for omitting to
place his name in the roll of students
fur this County, in our notice last
week. It was not our fault but that
of the printer of the Catalogue, who
made Mr. Holloway an Edgefielder.
Graduates of Woford.
The following is a list of the young
men who graduated from Wofford
College, Spartanburg, on the 26th:
J. E. Carlisle, Sumter; W. E. Barr,
Edgefield; H. F. Chrietzberg, Char
leston; E. X. Hardin, Chester; J. K.
Jennings, Union; G. E. Keitt, New
berry; H- J. Kinard, Edgefield ; J.
W. Wolling, Charleston; J. W. Rose

Union; W. W. Wannamaker, Orange
burg; J. E. Webster, Union; C. P.
Woford, Spartanburg; C. W. Zim
merman, Spartanburg; W. S. Rone,
The Commencement exercises, we
are happy to learn, were highly inter
esting, and were witnessed by a large
number of the friends of the College

A pamphlet lately issued by Messrs.
Reid and Keim, of London, in calling
the attention of English capitalists to
this State, concludes in the following
"We have presented to the public
a bird's eye view of the material
wealth of South Carolina, which is
awaiting only the application of
energy and intelligent labor to make a
great and prosperous people. It has
been shown that land is rich, abundant
and cheap; that the climate is con
ducive to health ; that large crops are
the inevitable results of good culture;
that whatever grows in any part of
the world may be grown here; that
the forests abound in timber, and the
fields abound in wild plants of medi
cal and marketable value, that the
soil teems with. mineral wealth; that
water power is unlimited,and manufac
turing can -be conducted at less ex
pense than at the north; that the mar
kets are at our doors; and finally that
South Carolina offers to the immigrant
all the advanitages of a new and old
State combined-the virgin soil of the
one, and the civilization of the other."
These gentlemen have told nothing
but the truth-there is no more
favored had under the canopy of
heaven than this State of South Caro
lina, and could the tide of emigration
once set in, and the unoccupied portions
of the State be taken up, built upon
and made to produce something for
the'benefit of mankind, how different
would be the condition. We are in
clined to think, that one of the reasons
why.our population is not increased
is because of the great selfishness of
the large landholders, who, instead of
holding out inducements to emigrants,
in disposing of their idle and waste
lands cheaply, hold them fast in
possession, and pay taxes on a dead
waste rather. There is not a county
in the State in which there are not
hundreds of acres, in and around the
towns and further off, which are not
only perfetly valueless as a producing
means, but dead weights and expense
to their owners. It is a narrow
minded, short-sighted policy, for
every acre sold to an industrious, hard
working man, enhances the value of
the rest. And when our landholders,
big planters, who have from 500 to
2,000 acres of land, and culUvate from
50) to 100 or 200 acres, see through
this thing, and make up their inds
to help others, that they may help
themselves, then, and not till thcn,
will it be different, and our little
towns swell into respectable propor.
tions, city like, and way side stations
spring int towns. It's the worst
kind of folly, this selfish refusal to
dispose of that which is of no benetit
to the possessor. It's on the princi
pie of the dogr in the mnaug~er. It is
pasingstrngethat sonme people can
not see where their interest lies, and
any farther off than the length of
their noses. All admit that we
want more population, yet no one who
is able to offer inducements to the in
dustricus farmer with little means
ever thinks of doing so. Is this the
way to do ? Nay, tny. We'll "never
get to Lunnon," as the boy in the
play says, if we permit these stoppages
to future growth and prosperity.

Laurens & Aheville Rail Road.
The various pr-jc(ted4i1e f:::llS
road ar an cvidim of progress in
the ril-lht directivl. The.argunts ()
advanced by some that thc -oun
try was better off before we had any,
railroads, than it is now, because,
-hickens could be bouglht for five cents
& head, and eggs at ten cents per doz
en, and other things in like propor
tion, and that we have communication
enough now-is proof only of want of
intelligence, and a selfish and narrow
minded policy. It should be apparent
to all, that the more communication
we have, and the greater the number
of Railroads, the greater will be the
prosperity. Take our sister State of
Georgia, for instance-intersected and
traversed by Railroads as she is-and
then deny if she is not far ahead of
less fortunate South Carolina in all
that goes to make up a prosperous
State. The fact is, the people of this
State have been sleeping too loug, but
it is indeed gratifying that the long
slumber is broken. True, numberless
charters have been granted time and
again, and some spasmodic efforts have
been made, but alas the latter were of
only short duration, and the charters
have been allowed to rest in quiet.
The completion of the Air Line has
done much towards this awakening,
and now the utmost rivalry exists,and
the greatest energy is displayed, by
not only the upper but lower Counties,
to open up new channels of trade, by
which the productions of distant see
tions can be brought to our doors as
rapidly and as cheaply as possible.
The mountain regions of North Caro
lina are all aglow, and in harmony
with the upper and middle sections of
this State-all feel the prime necessi
ty of Railroad connectios-and the
only question to be solved is the short
est, most desirable and cheapest route.
In our last issue we gave the com
parative distances of routes from the
great meat-packing, and grain and
fruit producing sections-taken from
the St. Louis Weedy, and called at
tention to a route, which from a view
of the map, shows an almost air line,
and a saving in distance of one hun
dred and sixty-four miles in favor of
any other proposed-as a connection
between the West and this State.
This view is worthy of attention we
take it, and there are many here who
see it in this light.
There are those too who are fired
with enthusiasm as to -the Newberry
connection with the Air Line, by tap
ping the Spartanburg Road at Shel
ton's, and the people of Union and
Spartanburg, of course, would encour
age this as a means to advance their
endeavor to get into connection with
the great trunk by way of Asheville.
But while we should look to the in
terests of other sections, we must not
overlook our own, and it seems reason
able that the interest of Newberry and
surroundings lie in a connection with
the Laurens and Asheville Railroad,
and more particularly that this latter
shows more signs of vitality,and a bet
ter prospect of being built. The peo
ple of Laurens will build to Greenville,
there is no doubt of this, and Green
ville will continue the road to tihe
North Carolina line, they pledge them
selves to this. If Newberry comes to
the assistance of Laurens in her Green
ville connection, and who can doubt
her readiness to do so, then Laurens
will, in like manner, help to make
connection with Newberry, and at
once will we have a place in the pic
ture of the great trunk line, and be in
easy communication between the moun
tains and the seaboard, and have
brought to our doors, the rich and
teeming productions of the West.
It has been proved too, that this
will bring Chicago seventy five miles
nearer Charleston. than by any other
route which will touch the coast-with
a saving of tive hours of time. Will,
not the low country see tihe advantage
lere too, anid lend a _hand in accom
piishing such an end.
The next question is how can the
money be raised--we answer that the
best, the easiest, quickest, most satis
actory way will be by taxation. The
people of Laurens propose to raise
$400,00 by this mode, and it would
take about $200,000 from Newberry.
A vote of the people should be taken
-tax or no tax-first le.ting them
omprehend the advantages to be de
rived from the road, and how light
would be the tax in comparison to the
benefits to be gained from cheaper
goods, enhanced value of property, iu
lux of population, and increase of
usiness, and we believe that the vote
will be a popular and large one in its fa
ror, per contra of a subscription stock,
which would take vast labor and im
ense time, and which could only be1
aised by oceans of argument.
We do not cry down the Chester
extension by any means, that must

The -National Board of Fire Under
writers. at their late mueeting in the
City of New York, reolved to raile a
fuud of $100,000 for the detection,
conviction and punishment of parties
engvagred in the nefarious business of
incendiarisin :fnd ar-on. The Execu
tive Committee of that Board, at their
meeting on May 14th, 1873, carried
out the resolution and opened the
We hail this movement as a step in
the right direction, and commend the
action as one not only likely to benefit
the Underwriters, bat also to protect
the public from wholesale loss. This
action is the more important when it
is remembered, that the experience of
the large companies transacting the
business of fire insurance in the
United States slows, that the propor
tion of loss to be attributed to the
above cause is not less than 33 .per
cent. of the whole, or a loss to the
country of at least twenty-five millions
of dollars per annum.
Every now and then some luckless
editor in South Carolina feeling the
necessity for closer co-operation with
his brethren, suggests the organization
of a Press Association. The day is
usually proposed, and every time the
meeting does not t:ike place, for unex
plained reasons. As it has been sev
eral months since such a thing was
proposed, the Temperance Advocate
now comes forward with a suggestion
to meet in Columbia in the latter part
of July. We are always ready to see
ond the motion, for the purpose of get
ting it before the house for discussion,
and hence we endorse the suggestion
of our yourg friend, proposing to
amend by substituting an up-country
town-Anderson for instance-as a
more suitable localit for hot weather.
In fact, why not begin with an edito
rial excursion through the np-country?
We have some pretty towns, located
among a thriving and intelligent popu
lation. which would astonish some of
the editors. and make them think they
were beyond the borders of their na
tive heath.-Anderson intelligencer
The suggestion has also been made
to us by Bro. Beard, but as we are
now under a severe Ess of pain, and
in bed, we cannot think of going far
to attend a Press Convention. We
endorse Messrs. Beard and Hoyt, but
substitute Newberry instead of Ander
son in the amendment of the latter.
We have local attractions enoug~h to
make the heads of the brethren swim.

The" 1I1:(-titionIe andtIz his 'a
L ani thoroughlypersuadedthat there is an
iinien-c deal ofiffetring in this world that
might be alleviated orcured, or, still better
prevented f the*wasa better understanding,
a different confidnueerbetween the educated
medical man anJtheiaity.
The man ol' science has an idea that his
knowledge cannot be imparted to the masses,
and in fact, that probably it is best tha-.
they shoulk not be entrusted with the great
truths and maxims of the profession; and
that the greater the glamour of mystery
thrown around the profession, the greater
respect will he shown it, and the greater
confidence will inure to its practitioners.
This course.may beget that kind of respect
and confidence that is inspired in the
ignorant and superstitious by witnessing the
juggler's feats of legerdtmain; they have the
profoundest respect fur his long locks and
black coat, they have unlimited confidence in
his powers, but you will observe them to shy
away from too close a proximity to him, for
they do not know what devilment may be in
him. Very surely that is not the kind of
confidence that should exist between the
practitioner and his patient.
This is a land of common schools and
common sense, and while there are certain
classes that ate willing to be treated like
poor Dominic Sampson, when old Meg
Merrilles, with her Devil's broth, bade him:
-"gape sinner and swallow," there is a
large class, who can and will criticise any
system of science or art, and will only re
spect that which is worthy of their confi
dence.-Physicians claim this respect, this
confidence, and as a clas., they deserve it,
but it is unwise- to fall into the error of
claiming it imperiously : there is too large a
number who read and reason and think with
intelligence to allow any profession to claim
a clergyable exemption from the zeneral
demand, to explain one's self. And this is
as it should be, else who could distinguish
between the true physician and the Quack.
An excellent old gentleman, who was an
honor to the medical profession remarked:
"That the mind and heart of the practitioner
ought to be the shrine of truth and probity:
his mind should not deceive itself, and his
heart should not suffer itself to be deceived
and misled, b any earthly temptation, from
the narrow and rugged way of duty and
conicientionsness." And that man, though
he may have authority from the best school
in.the land,who in practicing one of the noblest
professions, shall make money his God;
sacrificing truth, the respect of his colleagues,
the duties he owes to his profession, all, on
the altar of mammon, is as mudh a quack as
the peddlar of an all-healing salve.
These things pizduce misgivings in the
minds of an intelligent people, and cause
them to look upon the Doctor with mistrust,
they are afraid to show him the tongue or
speak of a passing headache for fear that he
will pounce on them with a prescription,and
consequent bill, all without the least neces
sity. This is all wrong: the man of science
must be more liberal in this respect, as he
does more charity than any other man in
the community. Let him extend hi.s benefits,
by becoming a public educator in the matter
of teaching his fellow men how to avoid
disease, and though he may not accumulate
as much worldly gear as lie might otlit:rwise
do, let him remember, that though the
honest man in any avocation, may not
compete with the trickster, yet he makes for
himself a pillow as soft as down and o'ne
that will ever woo his weary head to rest.
There is a large class who have an un
bounded confidence in the Doctor, and who
believe him all-powerful to cure; imagining
that he has a panacaa for every ill, and that
if after looking at the patient's tongue and
feeling his pulse, he fails to produce a physic
that will cure, he simply doesn't know his
business, or he is careless and indifferen;
and ho at once seeks another advisor.
The hone:t (?) physician feels called upon in
such cases to give a box of bread pills or a
phini of water colored with red lavender,
with very particular itnstructions as to bow
the medicine is to be taken, and with what
care the effects must he watched; the less
honest gives a tousing dose of medicine and
goes away chuckling in his sleeve and con
gratulating himself upon having a good
patient for at least tea days: and the poer
patient when allowed to get well con
gratulates himself upon his miraculous
IIere is a case in point :-A man consulted
a physician two weeks ago with regard to a
trouble he had had a number of years.
Hie had consulted a number of Doctors,
nearly all of whom, had prescribed medi
cines for him; and he had tried innumerable
patent nostrums, all without benefit; after a
thorough examination the physician explain
ed to him, how that the remedies he had
taken were only palliative, and that they
could not possibly cure him, and also ex.
planed to him, how by the persevering use
of very simple means,-he would be cured;
and at the same time assuring him from practi
cal experience with. similar cases, that he
would be surely and thoroughly cured, But
the means were too simple. That man to
day, is in bed taking three pills every hour,
day and night, the Doctor visiting him twice
a day, trying to cure a symptom, or rather I
should say a result of a disease which has
been lost sight of, and which might have
have been cured without one grain of medi
The patient should always have that con
fidence in his physician that will allow him
to express himself honestly and candidly,
and if he thinks that you do nrot need med
icine to say so, without fear of giving of
fence; the medical man ought, and must
know, and be able to distinguish between
those maladies that have a tendency to cure
themselves and those that tend to destruction,
and you must allow him to say'; let that
Be satisfied if he says to you go home and
rst two or three days, adopt this diet and
avoid that, use these precautions and you'
will be well. (Go and do it; don't tell him
you can't. If he tells you that you must
have a blister, or a dose of oil, don't tell him
you cant't. iIe doesn't prescribe these
things because they are the tlrst things that
pops into his mind, but because he knows
they are the best means of restoring your
health: and you have no right to allow any
squeaaishness on your p'art to alter or
swerve him from that course which his
judgment dictates; if you do, you very surely
cannot hold him rnsponsible if your case
does not terminate as favorably as it 0ught.
Let the practitioner be patient, and care
flly explain as far as in his power, any
point on which his patient may desire to be
informed, and give .Cound, good reasons for
adopting this, that or the other line of treat
ment, and if he has sufficient erudition to do
so intelligibly, he will soon find himself
rewarded by a confidence that will cling to
him in the hours of greatest peril and

M1. EtoTOk-In Monday's issue of the
Columbia Ution-lHerald, appears a piece of
newe furi,ished that sensation-seeking paper
by a passengr, % hicb stated that a man
na,ed Iihard, l;d brutally t saulted
Thomas P. elidlr, editor of the Progres.-irc
Age, in consequence of an article which
had appeared in his paper. As I am the
man alh:ded to, all th-it I denand is fair
play and the trivi, and as Mr. Slider did
not contradict the passenger, I will. The
facts, are that I e dled on the Pro,gressive
editor with a small beef account of $1.86,
which in a progrtssive way he disputed, sta
ting lie owed mne only 40 ets. I again urged
the settlement, when the lie was given me,
followed by languiage which a gentleman
would hardly titter, and ver-. much of it too.
All this I bore till he threw out his hand as
if to threaten or strike, when my hu-nanity
caused ic to knock hinm down, and after
getting him down, I beat him a trifle to
teach him better nitniners. I would not
make this explanation, but for the inipl ied
idea that it was an assualt for political
purposes. I ant no politieian, but an
honest, hard working beef' man, anti I hope
the Union-lerald will tak4 note, and not
only of this, but that the recount for .1 86
is Iot yet paid. S. P. BAIRD.

I have in stre, :mnd still receivir, my
Sum er stock of Goods, which consists of
every article usually helt in first, clas$
stoVes. The fall in cotton caused a propor
tionate full in goods; this was taken advan
t.qe of, consequently I was able to buy at
unprecedentedly low prices, and can there
fore sell correspondingly low. In the mean
time I do not advertise to sell at small pro
fits above co.t and quick sales. as other
merchants do, but I propose to and will sell
at 25 per cent. less th an they do, and then
mtake good profits, for 1 do not believe in

that the secret of a mnerchalt's success lies
in his knowing hein to huy and how
