e. BACK TO FIRST PRINCIPLES
dA few years ago it was thioug
a. that the climate of upper Caroli
m was not adapted to the raising
rcotton, and the rich soil of th<
aeCounties lignear the Blue Rid
aLt was devoted for the most part
s-the production of the cereals, larn
squantities of which were annua
in hipned to supply the demand

to that bv uin-r om:nrcial fertiliz
of ers the farmers could force their

Ie i and the ro t was that the cottol

der How to start or what to write
un- about this week is a problem that
ere even a Philadelphia lawyer might
fiid dillicult to solve. The harvest
to last week was rich in thought and

yOS- morial service to the Confederate
les. dead-and long may the memory
of thEir sufferings and their untine
ly deaths be kept in living remnemn
brance-green and fresh. This
* occurred on Saturday however, and
not in the week proper, but in the
s. HERALDs week, which begins on
Thursdav. The next event was
the sermon Sunday night to the

and sundry and divers other things
of lesser 'moment. All was of in
terest however, and we will be p)ar.
doned for recurring to them.
It is p)leasanit to write, to convey
one's thoughts to a "cloud of wit
~:nesses,"' to hundreds of readers,
the but, that one must have something
2'. to write about, or 'twere better that
a "mill-stone he hanged about his
"-neck, and 1:e be cast into the sea."
Yea, verily, infinitely better. There
are men who are troubled with "a
oes constipation~ of ideas but have a
igdiarr:oa of words." Ilavn't you
igmet such men, reader? They are
to to be shunned like a p)estilence.

on of it. After this serious talk an
sh- anecdote told of .John W. may re
vive vou. It is said that hie hailed
ac- Jas. f. Culbreath. Esq , on one oc
mm casion and asked him if lie thought
ese there was a hell, and without wait
ive ing for a reply said that this. that
-to and the other man had told him that
there was none, and for his part he
en- did not believe there was any such
l a p)lace. or that it was as hot as it
me had been 'ricommnended7."Jim's
aer reply was -'you had better not risk

was such a good thing, and sugges

may not be amiss to bring it on

Our pity is largely called for in
look*ng over the columns of the
three News;papers of the town. It
looks as if the business part of the
commu:-iy are disposed to allow
themi to run to seed. The thing
which gives life to the Newspaper
is withheld-we allude to advertis
ing. It is a self-evident fact they
cannot live without advertising, vet
they are expected to live. Week
after week do they appear without
any new advertisements. That the
newspapers are necessary to the
well-being of the town is readily
admitted, it could not get on with
out its paper, and were they all to
cease publication how soon would
a syndicate be formed and money
be raised to start one again. Sub
scriptions would at once be made
in shares of $50 and $100 to enable
some one to publish a paper, and it
would take no longer time than that
necessary to procure material, and a
new paper would unfurl its leaves
to an admiring and anxious public.
The subscribers too would pledge
themselves to sustain it both by
Fubscription and by advertising. Is
this not a true picture? And yet
the Kw?s, the 1me)-reor and the Ill:n
A are allowed to drag through a
pitiful existence, an existence
which costs nothing to the public.
We think it the duty of the busi
ness community to support their
town papers by liberally advertis
ing. and all others by subscribing
to one, or too, or all three of them.
This is our opinion.
Boys and girls, do you ever think
that you will one day be men and
women, and take the places of fath
er and mother? Do you think of
this? and are you preparing for it.
Show us the boy and gi:l who loves
father and mother. who is obedient.
truthful, kind and diligent and we
see one who will be an honor in his
day and generation, a good man, a
goodl, lov-ely woman, whom all will
love and admire. Youth is the
season for improvement, and if that
period is allowed to run to waste,
it will lie too late to catch up or
change for thme better. Now is the
time. boys and girls, now is the day
of salvation. Look to your b)e.
havior, allow no bad habits to be
conmc rooted, let your walk be up.
