Corm, March 13.-"The trouble with
--- South Carolina," said last night the shrewd
and suecessful general agent of a large
SNorthern manufactory of Improved agricul
tagat machinery, "is that she doesn's adver
tise herself suffciently. People outside
doa't know what she Is doing. Her own
neple don't do her justice, I was struck by
T truth of an editorial in The News and
lmrn, a couple of months ago, making a
of the a -entural progress of
arolia an durig thpras
-two yer Gin the laue wih ste
ducts since 190S much more rapidly than
Georgia had done, she article insisted that
ti h ae "Poor old Senth Carolina"
S shoul cease from the lips-of her sons, and
argued that the Idea of many of our people
-that their State was behind others of the
South In material advancement was unjust
and injerlous. That is the exact fact. Peo
pie here are too modest by haalf. To have
their achievements known they must speak
auor tiemselves.
"I will tell you what I knoj aut ari
ctral progress in South Carolina and
':ergs' continued the aet. "Last.year
I ha the general agency, o my boase In
South Carolina. Georgia andFlorida. Befor
I left headquarters the managers told mw
repeatedly to pal partictiar attention to,
Georgia. They had agreat ies:about Geor
gia's progressiveness because she talked so
much about It. I told them that I would
look out for that State, but that I thought
there was just as good an opening in South
Carolina. They sallied Incredulously. 1
travelled through both States impartially
and appointed local agents. Now, do you
know what the results were at the close of
1882 ? You can't guess ? Well, then, we
sold $21,000 worth of farm steam-engines,
threshers and saw-mills in Georgia and $78,
000 worth In South Carolina. Anderson.
County alone took $20,000 worth of improv
ed machinery,-almost as much as Georgia,
and a number of my competitors made good
sales there also. This year the business I.
increasing greatly in South Carolina. I be
lieve, fromwhat Iknow of the sales of others
in the business, that South Carolina bought
very much more labor-saving machinery last
year than Georgia, and when I get home I
will try to get you approximate figures. You
can see for;ourself how the business is in
creasing here. Look at the number of
agencies only recently established by manu
facturers In Columbia!
"This is only one instance. Travelling as
I do in both States, I see the relative progress
of both, and South Carolina is not left be
hind. But when-you go North you ind that
Georgia [a considered a phenomenon of pro
gress, while South Carolina is not heard of
Industrially. The reason Is that your people
don't brag enough in the papers and out of
them. Why, the Georgians boast so much
about themselves that they convince not only
outsiders but themselves. The people of
Atlanta talk as if that city were intermediate
in size between New York and London. They
are a pushing people and they advertise.
Mr. Stephens was a distinguished man
and a loss to his State, but when I was over
in Georgia the other day the people talked'as
if upon his death the American eagle must
fold his wings and go to roost. And the
Atlanta Constitution. They think that paper
a blanket to warm the Union under. In
short, the people of Georgia have a sublime
self-satisfaction which, while not altogether
admirable, certainly helps them a great deal,
for they are so well pleased with themselves
that they satisfy others with their condition.
I don't think South Carolina need go into
such ecstasies about themselves, but if they
let the world know the sober facts of their
progress they would get along better. They
can blow their own trumpet with truth and
to their advantage in attracting immigration
and capital."
Fon TEE HERALD.
The Laws and the Courts, as
Zero Sees Them.
An editorial in your issue of the 8th inst.,
capped "Most Hearty Good Master" knocked
the shell from some, as rotten legality as
could be found in the code o? a Hottentot.
Charge five dollars a reference for advocat
ing an untenable claim! Palpable wrong!
monstrosity I BuT wHt HAS NOTHING BEEF
HEARD OF THIS KIND OP THINGS BEFORE ?
WAs IT THAT NONE KNEW IT, BUT THOSE
WHO PROFITED IN ITS PRACTICE ? We
suppose 'twas stptute or common law, and
legal wrong is legal right. A few years ago
we were sued on a note-we set up no de
fence; for we bad none except want of funds.
The costs in the case, and no defence put 10,
were forty dollars-one-sixth of a year's
work-enough to have fed our little ones live
months. Another who found we had no
funds,' proposing to convert some of our
goods and chattels into cash, did the same
thing-the debt in this case was thirty-three
dollars-the costs twenty-seven-no defence
again. An estate of three thousand dollars
came before the Mast and the courts, after
the costs in about a dozen needless references
were paid, little more than a thousand
remained. The items in an account against
an estate are made out thus (we produce for
the benefit of novices):
Estate or A. B. C., deceased, Dr., to L.J.E
I Fee.........................$300 00
The amount of the fee depends altogether
on the size of the estate and not on the
amount of work done. The fee must be ap
proved by the court, but any well disciplined
court will be more than just. When a judge
orders the distribution of an estate, those
who have experience know that the distribn
tion has already nearly been made. They all
.-according to law-look and talk like
lackstone was a fool to them-but what
sort of law Is it ? No one Is to blame for
this, but those who make laws with such
loop holes in them. Men and women who
have only one or two cases In a lifetime go
mwy from the courts feeling that they have
been fleeced, and make a resolve that they
will suffer much, before appealing to courts
again. They are impressed with a contempti
ble Idea of the equity of our laws and the
justice of their execution. Some may strive
to Impress them that such is high justice
always bas been-ever will be, and there
can be no improvement. But this Is hollow,
false. . If the people wili put themselves to
the trouble to Inform themselves a little, and
will go to the ballot box determined to vote
for none but men of ability and for none but
those who avow reform both in legislation
and in the judiciary (for judiciary is a
creature of dhe legislature)-determined to
vote for none but those who are resolved
that the defenceless widows and helpless
chlldren.of our yeomaury, when deprived of
their husbands and fathers, shall not have
the small hard-earned pittance gulped from
them, by technicalities, names and pretexts
then there will be reform and speedy reform.
Is procrastination a part of justice ? Our
last court took up and tried cases by consent;
that means-nothing less-what a farce!
That's the rule, eh! It's THE RULE we are
after. An officer In our county-a model In
most respects-thinks procrastinatIon the
quintescence and flower of courts. He argues
shuly: "Speedy justice crowds the courts
with plaintiffs-tardy justice makes people
suffer wrong, bear grievances, and arbitrate
rather than resort to courts." Such reason
ing may do for church, it Is novel in state.
He's honest-he's wrong-we'll vote for him
no more.
Much is said in derision of the- average
jury. It Isn't near what UNIVERsAL EDUCA
TroN will make It. but its errors arise more
from morbid sympathy than from avarice
and therefore are more excusable. All grant
ed that Is charged against the jury, wouldn't
most pcrsons with a just cause prefer to risk
their caure to a jury than to the other part
of the legal machinery. Like- Pat, when
si"k and asked by the priest. "Are you afraid
to meet your God?" "Och, no." said he,
"it's the other chap that I fear to meet."
rave we said too much ? If the laws and
courts have the confidence of the people
not of black1egs, roughs and cut-throats who
fear justice; if they have the confidence of
the true, the virtuous, the unsuspecting and
law-abiding, then we exclaim, PECoAvIxUs!
and will do penance until pardoned.

FOu THE HERALD.
To the Town Council.
GENTLEMEN :-Your term of oflice is fast
drawing to a close, and we feel we must give
you a parting word. We will not be harsh
with you. Will deal with you gently, but
justly, as you have many poor devils who
fell in your way.
"You tried them justly, and fined them
too;
Who was tbe bigger devil, they or you?"
One breaks the law, the other neglects
duty. Who is the greater criminal, the
sentinel who slept upon his post, and
through his neglect the army was lost, or
the soldier who is caught napping up a sour
apple tree ? You gentlemen are the sleeping
sentinel. Did you know that you had a
chief, and he had duties? "No"-yes, that
tall, majestic, young athlete standing over
the way, that's him. Oh, he was too slow
for us. Put him on retired list, got a little
gem in his place though. Is not exactly a
walking prayer-book, but Is as good on the
catch, and the best on a witness, as ever
slung a baton. Never wants .any evidence,
when he has had his say; couldn't do without
Imx. Didn't want to strike the old bird un
der the 1' ing, see ? Well, he is a chief all
the same, and one of his multiple duties is
to be present every morning at the opening
of the market, see that nor.e but good and
wholesome meats be sold. The only marke:
he is present at, and the only meats inspect
ed, is at Mrs. --'s breakfast table. Facts,
gentlemen, facts. If somebody has died this
year from eating.impure food, who bears the
responsibility? Sad thing for you to think
of in that last great day. It is another one
of his many duties, to inspect, from time to
time, all weights and measures, see that the
poor arenot defrauded. Now, all the mea
re and weight he has inspected was a pint
emp when he wanted it fall of pinders. That
cup'was badlydeleient, as he had to double
heap it, and cpit, with his ponderous hand
tget aplut. NOw,f all weights and mes
ures m towu SLOt adly defective as that
one PIT cup, then what have the people
been swindled out of in one year, all by your1
notknowing you had a chief, nud he had
duties. Upon whose head does the respon
sibility rest ? And did it ever occur to your
body that wee bad a damp spell a while back,
and the streets anything but dusty? and that
os should -do something to: better them?
So-? You were not expected to macadamize
or underground them, but do what the old
Council did-would have done. Neglect,
neglect, gentlemen. You condemn the
violator; you stand condemned. Councils
before you have left behind them works and
mopuments that will stand as lasting praise
to their powerand ability; works that com
ing generations will look with honor and
admiration upon and sing the praises to their
founders. What have you left behind you
that will stand as living monuments to YOUR
administration. Three street lamps, assis
tant chief of Police and a lamp-lighter.
"Shades of Caer!" Why did you not as
easily and at less expense appoint an assistant
chief Mayor, four assistant chief wardens,
and one chief lamp-lighter. It would have
given tone to your administration, dignity to
the town and satisfaction to the people.
But, gentlemen, we make no triumphant
yell at your departure. Put your hands in
your breeches-pockets and pass quietly under
the arch. You have the sympathy of the
populace. Tell your successors you are glad
your time is out. Tell all the boys you were
sorry they elected you, and would not serve
again for any thing. They will believe you,
but the people will say there goes the sagest
set of Councilmen that has served from Gil
bal's time down. PRESTO.

NEWBERRY, S. C.
THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 1883.
A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fam
ily Newsa r, devoted to the material in
terests of people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms, see first page.
Rotation in office is a correct pol
icy in representative governments,
for the office holders should be
taught that the offices which are in
trusted to them do not belong to
them. But there are certain offices
in which frequent changes would be
not only unwise, but hurtful to a
proper administration of the affairs
of the government. It certainly is
silly to say that no man should be
elected to an office, who is not ac
quainted with the duties of that
office, just as it was absurd for the
father to forbid his son to venture
in the water before he had learned
to swim. But for the people to re
quire an honest and capable man
to give up an office as soon
as he has learned how to discharge
its duties properly, would be no
less absurd than for the father
to forbid his son to venture in the
water after he has learned to swim.
President Garfield, just after he
took the oath of office, turned and
tenderly kissed his aged mother, in
the presence of the multitude that
witnessed his inauguration. The
public applauded; the pulpit extoll
ed Garfield's gentleness and tender
ness; the press pronounced the act
beautiful, appropriate and touching.
Mr. Boynton, of Georgia, was evi
dently filled with admiration of the
act, for a few days ago, just after
he was sworn in as accidental Gov
ernor of , Georgia, he advanced
among the women and kissed his
favorite niece ! The Georgia press
clapped its hands, and was extrav
agant in its praise of the kissing
exhibition. We think it is time for
such stuff as that to sfop, or for the
performance to take place in pri
vate. Why kiss the niece? What
had she to do with the removal of
Governor Stephens?
It is said that the Hon. Richard
Crowley of New York, who has
been retained to assist Melton in
the political prosecutions in our
State will get a handsom... fee. It
would require a big fee to induce a
lawyer of any respectability and
self respect to engage in the sort of
business in which Melton is now
reveling. This is especially true
in view of the fact that he will get
nothing but the fee. And if Mr.
Crowly wants a fee and nothing
but a fee, he is looking in the right
direction, for Uncle Sam is able to
pay handsomely. But if he is look
ing forward to the elcction trials
for anything else that an honora
ble man would care to receive, he
is in a fair way to get more than an
ordinary share of disappointment.
A Washington letter to the Cleve
land Ledgier says that a certain
member of congress, from South
Carolina, averaged forty drinks a
day, in W~ashington. The writer
got his information from a bar-ten
der, but neglected to give the name
of the bibulous congressman. We
feel sure that the member whose
name is not given, was in favor of
abolishing the internal revenue on
whiskey.
A doctor at Richmond ~says that
if people will take a bath in hot
whiskey and rock salt twice a year
they -will never catch a Cold. ~Un
til somebody has tried this new
remedy we would say :-stick to
the 1old and reliable Dr. Bull's
ough Syrup.
The seventeen Fairield Demo
crats whose examination was sus
pended a short time ago in order to
give Willard time to rake up new
witnesses, returned to Columbia
last Monday. The examination
proceeded before Commissioner
Bauskett. A negro circuit rider call
ed for volunteer witnesses from his
church, and was successful, the wit
nesses now numbering about twen
ty. On Sunday a conference was
held at the Methodist church at
Monticello, and the meeting com
mended Messrs. J. W. Kirkland, J.
S. Dawkins and James McGill, de
fendants, to the sympathy of the
public, affirming that they are high
toned Christian gentlemen.
But the dirty work of Melton &
Co., goce en in Fairfield, Clarendon
and elsewhere.
The Chinese Merchants who
were driven out of the town of Way
nesboro, Ga., several weeks ago,
have begun suit against eighteen of
the most prominent citizens of that
place, charging them with damages
to the amount of $115,000. Loo
Chang & Co., as a firm, claim $50,
000; Tom Loo Chang, $40,000; and
Ah Sing, $25,000. The suits are
brought in the U. S. Circuit Court
in Savannah. It is understood
that the Chinese minister at Wash
ington has engaged the services of
distinguished attorneys, and in
tends to make a test case to see
what a Chinaman's chances are in
this Country. Very large damages
are claimed; it is likely that very,
very small damages will be recov
ered.
As early as 1821, Thomas Jeffer
son speaking of the race problem,
said, "Nothing is more certainly
written in the book -of fate than
that these people (the negroes) are
to be free; nor is it less certain that
the two races,equally free,cannot ex
ist in the same government." These
words of the illustrious statesman
will be interesting to students of
the probable destiny of "our brother
in black." They contain two pro
phetic utterances, the first of which
has been fulfilled.
The newspaper press has been
pouring a torrent of ridicule and
abuse upon the head of poor Wig
gins, because his "planet-shaking
tempest" failed to come at the ap
pointed time. This is passing
strange. Did anybody want the
tempest to come? Then, why abuse
Wiggins? The HERALD has noth
ing but the heartiest good will for
him, and it hopes that if he sees fit
to remain in the field of prophesy,
he will always foretell storms and
dire calamities that are not coming.
J. B. Barnes and three other
young business men of Columbia,
have been engaged in stealing
jewelry. Barnes being arrested made
a confession implicating the other
three. He was a clerk in a jewelry
store and did the stealing; the
others disposed of the stolen
goods. _______
Congressman Singleton says"The
Southern men are getting to be pro
tectionists, and in twenty years the
greatest claims for protection will
come from the Southern States."
It seems that we are drifting in the
direction indicated by Mr. Single-~
ton.
On the fourteenth, Judge David
Davis was married to Miss Addie
Burr of North Carolina. The wed
ding was quiet and private. Miss
Burr is 35 years old, and it is said
that Judge Davis appeared twenty
years under his sixty-eight.
Last year Mary Belle Jones of
Laurens Rued P. H. E. Fuller for
breach of promise, and obtained a
verdTt for 10,000 damages. The
case went to the Supreme Court and
the judgment was affirmed; so the
10,000 must be paid.
"Zero" is severe on the laws and
the courts, but he does his own
thinking, and he is not altogether
wrong on the subject of costs. We
shall have more to say on that sub
ject hereafter.
It seems that Geul. Grant, the
great third-termer, will at last go
to the corner. It is said that his head
will ornament the new two-cent pos
tage stamp.
President Arthur is said to be
afflicted with Bright's disease. He

The State Agricultural Depart
ment, in a report based upon 1 81 re
ports of special correspondent - rep.
resenting every County in the State,
shows that the number of acres
planted in wheat this season, is
184,654 acres against 201,815 last
year. The acrease in oats is 332,.
929 against 362,373 acres last year.
The number of acres in rye has de
creased 5 per cent, and in barley, 6
per cent. Grain sown early is re
ported in the best condition, by 93
correspondents, and that sown late,
by 11 correspondents. The condition
of work stock is reported to be 9
per cent. better than at this time
last year, owing to the fine grain
crop of 1882. 75,352 tons of com
mercial fertilizers were used lasi
year, and it is estimated that 76,
206 tons will be used this year.
The financial condition of the
farmers is reported better than last
year by 115 correspondents, un.
changed by six, and not as good by
seven. The reports generally agret
that higher wages' are demanded
and poorer services rendered by

CULTURE WITH A VENGEANCE.
An examination of the youngei
children of the public schools o:
Boston, made by Dr. Stanley Hall
showed that .18 per cent. of the
number had no knowledge of a cow
further than that gained from pic
tures; 61 per cent. of those examin
d had never seen corn growing
0 per cent. did not know wher4
heir ribs were not exactly wha
hey were, while only. 6 per cent
were ignorant of the locations o
heir stomachs. Some of the chil
ren stated that 'flour came froD
the grocer, who gets it directly fron
od; others said that meat is dug
from the ground or picked up fron
the meat tree. From these fant:
Dr. Hall deduced two other facts
hat a gross ignorance of practica
hings may exist side by side wit!
very thorough book knowledg'
ad that some modificaition of t.h
indergarten method is necessar:
n the instruction of the young.
The New York Tines says it wouk(
e wise for the New England mane
facturers to acknowledge their de
feat on the coarser grades of good
in which the Southern manufacture
fnds his chief profit, and to tur
thdir attention to the finer yarn
prints and fancy woven fabries.
STRENGTH
to vigorously pushi a business,
- strength to study a profession,
strength to regulate a household,
strength to do a day's labor with
out physical pain. All this repre
sents what is wanted, in the often
beard expression, "Oh ! I wish I
had the. strengthl" If you are
broken down, have not energy, or
feel as if life was hardly worth!liv
ing, you can be relieved and re
stored to robust health and strength
by taking BROWN'S IRON BIT
TERS, which is a true tonic-a
medicine universally recommended
for all wasting diseases.
