Northern CapisL tr
Much has been said, of -a, about F
Northern capital, and the impor pl
tance of inducing Nortbern capital- pi
ists to invest at the South. These er
theories about building up the waste e
plces of the South by an ibflux of of
Northern capital, are fanciful, and
cannot too soon be abandoned- th
Thos. who advocate them, seem to co
think that by offering a tempting of
bait, they can bring Northern B
capital into the South very much A
as partridges are led into a trap ; A
and that; once'here, it will become Fl
a part of the wealth of our country. L
Such economists have all the faith G
and not a little of the folly that N
caused Mulberry Sellers to believe S
that he could make millions of T
money by selling his Salvation for T
Sore Eyes. The era of sore eyes
failed to come.
What we most need is less talk b
about Northern capital, and a little i
more Southern energy and enter- te
pribe; more of a disposition to do ti
for ourselves, and less talk about
what the North is able to do for us ;
more of a spirit pf co-operation, _
and less of that other spirit ,which A
says; "Every man for himself, and A
devil take the hindmost." A
The only way in which we can
acquire substantial wealth, is by c
bringing money into our Community C
in exchange for the products of our C
soil, and the fruits of our skill and C
ndustry. In the rich mine of our D
natural resources is locked up un- E
measured wealth-; .aad, after all, F

Several days bgn the News and
Courier published a paragraph about
certain giants of Georgia. There is a
clerk in one of the dry goods stores in
Columbia, formerly a travelling sales
man for a Baltimore house, who is,
perhaps, the most powerful man in
South Carolina. He has lifted 'as
much as. 1,604 pounds dead weight
with the use of strape. In Sumter
and also in Columbia he has on two
separate occasions carried a compress
ed bale of cotton, weighing 450
pounds, in each hand, across the'
street, using a common cotton hook
to aid him in holding the bale. He
can hold a keg of nails weighing 100
pounds in each hand straightout from
the shoulder. Altogether his feats of
strength are almost incredible. His
muscles are like iron, nod I have seen
him lift some weights that would have
surpr-sed Samson. ,. C. H.
Au old Tar-heel who was "thar"
says that at the battle of Chancellors.
Ville, while the fighting was raging,
Gen. Rhodes rode up to Gen. Ramseur
and asked him what time it was.
Ramseur, pulling out his old timepiece
slowly, said : "General, in such an
emergpney as this my old watch never
runs." Rhodes "took" right off, and
returned to where the bullets were
