The Price of Otffee.
The battle for bread in South Caro
lina for the last four years has been
fierce and terrible, and many have
met more than their mnatch and gone
down in the conflict. But that war
between want and muscle, life and
death, is nothing when compared to
the battle for office in the coming
State election. The political air is
now tremulous with the mutterings
of the coming storms, and men of
stout hearts and strong arms are re
connoitering the field and buckling on
the heavy harness of war to do or die
for soft places and profitable jobs.
This is human nature, tempered wit'i
a dash of the Adawie fall. We all,
have our weaknesses, but office-hun'
ing now seems to be the besetting sin,
which might tempt an angel from the
celestial court to soil his immaculate
plumage in the muddy pool of the
political arena. There are a few im
mortal names that were not born to
die-men who unflinchingly faced the
battle storm in the hour of danger.
and nobly bled for their country; but
there are a great many in these piping
times of peace for whom the country
has bled. They are those that have
come through great tribulation and
are destined to come through much
more before they reach the coveted
goal of their selfish ambition. Office
is a good thing, and honorable men,
patriots and prophets, have sought and
obtained it by rendering themselves
worthy of it at the hands of their
fellow citizens ; but it is the indi
criminate epidemic that we are strik
ing at, and not the sporadic eases of
worthy men here and there. We are
not in favor of making the State an
eleenosynary institution to pension off
her citizens, worthy and unworthy
alike, with office and fat salaries, won
at the hands of the honest voters, by
brainless impudence and unblushing
cheek. When men. become so re
formed and purified as to seek ofice
for the good of the State, and not
with an eye single to their own ease
and comfort, then we shall respect
them as honorable men and patriots,
but not till then. Defeat in this di
rection is more than a match for the
patriotism and politics of some of our
people, and the moment the ballot
declares against them their fealty fal
ters and their loyalty to Democracy
become feeble and unsteady. These
are not the mea for a crisis, and can
Dot be relied upon when their country
or their party calls for sacrifice and
heavy work.-Daily Phcenix.

Why is It.
The truths of science and pro
gressive thought have always been
compelled to batter down the bul.
warks of prejudice and disbelief, or
remain forever unknown. Why is it
th.at people are so reluctant to receive
facts that relate directly to the phe
nomena of their own existence ? As
tronomers, upon discovering a star,
assign it a place at once, and it is for
ever fixed. The rule by which a
mathematical problem is once solved
becomes forever an axiom; but no
matter how clearly the principles
which govern health and sickness be
demonstrated, sone refuse to believe.
Dr. Pierce's Family Medicines, which
are now so generally used, and de
servedly popular, were, in their early
days, very reluctantly received by the
people. To-day, Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery has outrivaled the
old time sarsaparillas, his Pellets are
in general use in place of the coarse,
huge, drastic pills formerly so much
employed, while the sales of his Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy and his Fav
orite Prescription are enormous.
Where the skin is sallow and covered
with blotches and pimples, or where
there are scrofulous swellings arid
affections, a few bottles of his Golden
.Medical Discovery will effect an en
tire cure. If you feel dull, drowsy,
debilitated, have sallow color of skin,
or yellowish-brown spots on face or
body, frequent headache or dizziness,
bad taste in mouth, internal heat or
chills alternated with hot flushes, low
spirits and gloomy forebodings, irreg
ular appetite, and tongue coated, you
are sufering from Torpid Liver, or
"Biliousness." In many cases of
"Liver Complaint" only part of these
symptoms are experienced. As a rem

Golden Medical Discovery has no

Primary vs. Convention.
The County Convention Satur
day, 25th, which met to adopt regn
lations for conducting primary elec
tions, reconsidered the vote by
which the primary election plan was
adopted at their previous session,
and rescinded their former resolu
tion adopting that plan. So the
system of nominating conventions
will be still the rule in this Ccunty.
This action was taken by the Con
vention Saturday under the im
pression that the majority of the t
Democratic -oters in the County .
preferred the por4inating conven
tions. As the delegates came from
every section of the County, and I
had had full opportunity to consult
the views of their constituency, and 3
no doubt had done so, they were in
a position to know. what step to
take. We were in favor of the pri- f
mary plan, but we are not among 1
those who quarrel because our views
are not adopted. Thinking for our
selves, ye yiel, tq.every other man
the same privileg. N.w that tbe
Conv.ention systerp is adopted we
propose to give it our hearty sup E
port, and hope that all Democrats e
in the County will do the same, ~
realizing that unity and harmony (
are necessary to the success of the
party. As to the plans, either is
good enough if properly managed; ;
there is about as much room for
chicanery and wire pulling under
one as under the other. :I
Some explanation is needed in re- .
gard to certain resolutions offered in a
the Convention Saturday. Among a
those resolutions was one endorsing I
Hamnptop, and another instructing i
the delegates from Newberry to i
vote for him in the State Conven- (
tion. The resolutions were offered <
together. There was not a dele
gate in the Convention, we are sure, I
who was not ready to endorse a
Hampton. The objection to the x
resolutions (as a whole) was that
that Convention had no. right to in
struct delegates who are not yet
chosen and who are to be chosen
by a different Convention. The ob
jection was well founded.
When the resolutions endorsing
IEmpton were afterwards offered, t

The General Assembly of the
resbyterian Church, lately in ses.
on at Knoxville, Tenn., passed a
.solution expressing their disap
roval of what is known as "Lay
vangelism." That is they disap
rove of laymen usurping the func
ons of ministers of the gospel. It
well known to all that for the
st few years, especially since
loodey and Sankey created such a
iror and sensation in the world,

irried on extensively throughout
l portions of the country. The

6r ministerial work, except that the
6y evangelists do not go so far as
> admit candidates into Church
iembership. They preach, urge
inners to repentance and faith,
nd expound the scriptures, just as
reachers do. We don't think any
ranch of the Church has ever given
inch encouragement to this sort
f work. Now, the General Coun
il of one of the most important and
ifluential denominations, a denom
2ation noted throughout the world
:r its clear-headedness and intelli
ence, has spoken out plainly and
rotested against "Lay Evangel
m." And the General Assembly
3 right. Moodey and Sankey may
ave done much good-much that
hey did was certainly of a very
.eeting character, many of their
onverts going back to their old
ays in a few weeks, as will always
e the case with those c'onverted (?)
nder great physical excitement.
Vhatever Moodey and Sankey may
ave done, they have had would-be
miitators who have proved utter
3ilures and worse than failures;
aen of no theological training, with
, very imperfect acquaintance with
he Scriptures, with little education
>r intelligence, who have made a
travesty pf the Bible And the
3hristian religion, that has had a
trong tendency to bring these sa
red things into~disrepute. If God
;ppoinits certain men to preach the
lospel they alone are authorized to
lo it.. Laymen have enough to do
r other ways. Public religious in
truction is no part of their duty.

2. That by his wise, conservative
and statesmanlike course he has re
stored quiet and happiness- to this
State, and has, more than any public
man, contributed towards allaying un
healthy irritation throughout the coun
try, and that the sentiments that have
inspired his administration are those
that should actuate us in the future ;
and that we will hail his renomination
as to the highest interest of the State.
Col. E. S. Keitt offered the follow

Resolved, That rigid economy
should be the rule practiced i-n every

-of the Democratic party throughout
the State to its importance.
Mr. Mangum presented the creden
tials of a colored club, known as the
"Hampton Conservative Club of Floyd

was resolved that the credentials be
referred to a conwittee of one from
each Township, to examine into the
matter and make their report at once.
The business of the Convention was
suspended to await the report of that
After consultation with the delega
tion the committee reported that ae
cording to the showing and admissions
of the delegates themselves, their club
had not been regularly organized as a
Democratic Club, and they had come
to this Convention rather in the char
acter of ambassadors than as delegates
and therefore were not entitled to seats
as regular delegates, but the committee
suggested that the President request
them to take complimentary seats.

Speaker Randall, after appointing
members of the Special Committee

is an excellent one, Mr. Potter, of

Reed and Hiscock. It was understood
that Frye, instead of Reed, of Maioe,
would be appointed, but he is said not
to have desired the appointment. Five

been similar to ours, and his neigh
bors had conferred such special favors
)a him as ours have upon us recently,
be for once would probably have let
is "joys be made known." Regard
tess of how he would have acted in
such a case, we would venture to state
that recently some of our good neigh
bors and friends made us a handsome
lonation, consisting of articles of food,
:lothing, glass and crockery-ware,
;poons, and some of the filthy luere
ill aggregating in value about $830.
Not for the sake of mere formality,
but earnestly do we state that we feel
hankful for this benevolent act
which we receive as indicative of the
interest which the thoughtful donors
take in our comfort and enjoyment.
May they receive in return for their
kindness conferred upon us all the
blessings promised to those who "con
iider the poor." And in this feeble
axpression of our gratitude and earn.
,st invocation of Heaven's richest
blessing, we would include those who
in other days did not forget us in our
ime of special need.
