SAND HILLERS. wa
agi
Correspondence New York San. ho
COLUMBIA, S. C.-To-day the
streets of this town have been well hil
filled. eThe corry people have cot
been heie in force. Noticeable gir
among the crowds of blacks.aud bu
whites were the sand hillers.
.The sand., hiliers are a race of
whites who live among thesand Tb
hills' of South. Carolina. They
seem a distinct type. From whomn
they descended' no one knows. de
Morally they are wrecks beyond sh
redemptiou. They are miserably 1tc
poor. They are despised by whites
and blacks alike. They have no
ambition, no hope, Do thought of
a higher life. No effort has ever ou
been made to elevate these de
graded people. -The treatment
they receive showH plainly the ed
utter indifforence. of the Southern hi
gentleman to the welfare of all So
whom he. ihinks are below bim. no
socially. de
Before the -war these poor ch
white& were: treated worse than
slaves. .. They had-the ballot, anld u
when election day drew near the bii
Soutb Uarolina gentlemen used to sh
herd them'in corrals, called bull i
ptns bor'6, and, supplying them bu
with whiskey, kept them drunk .
until they were ready to have er
them east their votes. Incredible ar

ft tender years, are slaves of thie giro
slay habit. These people live in so
qalid hovels hidden from the fu
ight of passing travellers by nop
res. Many of these wretched day
welings stand in ravines where as
here is a little level land fit for met
,griculture. A few chickens stalk b ad
adly atround the yards. A pig, s.l

A, day in a Western town when
wheat or corn is marketed is a je

loudly to each other; they joke ;,
Lhe banks ate crowded ; the ma- e

blankets 'and food fur themselves.
These farmers are much more
economical than Northern men.
The teams are fed- and watered,
fires are built in the c:,rra!, and
the teamsters, many of whom are
small farmers, gather around the

they eat. I [eard no . DO

they do not seem to believe. At
any rate tbe common people of

But how will' you have a 'Merry

find the greatest enjoyment in such
olidsy, and that is-to make it 'mier

sn that we are slow to learn, and I
k you to take the old Doctor's word
rit, and begin young. Celebrate

e one, old or. young, feel happy.
se methods need not be expensive,
d parents will be ready tot help.
rls will know of some old man or
>man to whom a pair of mittens, a
forter, or some little thing they
ld make, would be very acceptacle.
Dye cannot knit such things, but
eycan ask their father for a basket
those nice apples, to take, on
britmas morning, to some poor peo-.
e who have no fruit. The value of
te gift is of no importance. It isto
ake such people feel that they are
>t forgotten. The day will not pas
ithout being a 'Merry Christas,' if
ey feel that some human being'|
inks of them, and all the better if|
at being is a child. Now, having
ken this serious view. .of Christmas.
-What are we to do for fun ? In
ese holiday times, we make and go
parties,* or gatherings of the young
k of the neighborhood.. This is
e time of all others, for youngsters
come together and be worry,anod
lese- children's parties, Ilam glad to

.,..an eah year T sa that I am
glad to notice this. It is because
it is a useful lesson for boys and-girls r
to meet each other, to get acquainted. z1
with, and learn how to entertainone c
another.. At this holiday,tiwe many
of you w..ill eithr, make.or.go to such
p'rties. If you give a parWg to your el

. It is provided by the constitutions '
of fourteen of our States that the Ex- i#
ective may disapprove any item or P
items of a bill appropriating money, iP~
whereupon the pari of the bill approved| h
shall be law, and the part disapproved| bt
shall fail to become law, unless re- Il
passed according to the provisions s
prescribed for the passage of bills over
the veto of the President. The iti
States wherein such provision as the j e
foregoing is part of the fundamental at
law, are Alabama, California, Colors.- Si
