widely as possible. 'There is no
method so sure to secure a man'si

charges which are easily disprovedi
against him. -1
Col. 1). Wyatt Aiken delights in
posing as the farmer's friend andi
apearing be fore the pubmlic as ai
horny handed son of toil. His1
friends, not cointent with sustaining
him in this perfectly harmless com
edy, now seek to create the impres
son that Mr. Jlohnstonc is thme far
mer's enemy, and industriously cir
ulate the story that that gentlemani
declared in a speech in Columbia
that the agricultural interest was
becoming too strong and would
have to be throttled to prevent it
front absorbing the power of the
State. Now Col. Y. J. Pope, of
Newberry, putblishes the statement
of~ the five gentlemen composing
the committee to which the speech
alluded to was made. They unite
in declaring that Mr. Johnstone did
not then or at any other time to
their knowledge attack the agrical
tural interests of the State. What
ie did say was that an effort was
being made to give the Board of
Agriculture power over the dispo
sition of certain phosphate rights
which should piroperly b)e left with
the people through their representa
tives in the Legislature, and that
that Board was acquiring too much
p)ower and should be checked. That
is the whole story and its dissem
ination will surely show the people
the truth andi gain their sympathy
for a slandered man.
One of the witnesses called by
Col. Pope is Maj. E. B. Marray, of
Anderson, whose response in de
fence of his opponent by a prompt
and frank statement of the facts is
magnanimous. manly and exceed
ingly creditable to him. He evi
dently has- no tolerance for the
methods used by Col. D. Wyatt

A Greas Sculptor an= His Work.
These ladies of Kentucky have ac
!omplished a most creditable act re
entty. It is the purchase of Joel T.
Iart's masterpiece, "Beauty's Tri
mph." Hart is the only great sculp
or Kentucky has ever had. Hon.
Edward J. McDermott, of Louisville,
hus describes him :
"His life was beautiful in its simpli
;ity and virtue. His heart and mind
were wedded solely to his high calling.
Hlis only aim was to achieve something
rreat and to leave behind hin an hon
rable name. The narbWe was his
l ief and best medium for the expres
ion of the strong feelings and the ex
ited ideas in his breast. He hoped
.o speak, through his living works, to
be men and women of future time,
nd lived to see assured the fruition of
hat bright dream and trusted main
tay of his long life.
"Mr. Hart was born in Clark county
u 1810, and died in Florence, Italy, in
[877. His remains are now in Florence,
)t they will be rem >red to Kentucky,
he Legislature having appropriated
51,000 for that purpose. He went to
chool only three months, but by per
istent effort educated himself, and
owards the end of his life was able to
vrite some creditable poetry. To fit
iimself for his art-work he studied
Lnatomy with success in Transylvania
University. He was always frugal,
emperate, laborious, genial and devot
d to his friends. His figure was a
ittle above the medium in height and
trength. His features indicated a
trong will and a sunny disposition ; a
ull beard covered his face. In early
dauth he worked as a stonemason, and
it twenty began to carve letters on
,ombstones and to make models in a
narble-yard. In the course of the
iext sixteen years he made a large
mnmber of gd busts of such men as
Andrew Ja2son, Cassius Clay and
lolin J. Crittenden. In 1849 he went
o Florence, Italy, to put into marble
is model of. Clay's statue, made for
he "Ladies' Clay Association," of
Richmond, Virginia. On this model
nd statue he worked, with inter
nissions, for thirteen years. In 1867
ie completed the statue of Clay now
n the court-house of Louisville. His
>ther important works are a fioe copy
f the Venus de Medici, a bust called
'Penserosa," representing a handsome
soman with downcast eyes; the
-Morning-glory," a beautiful little girl
iolding a morning-glory in one hand
and her scant, flower-filled gown in the
)ther; an exquisite lady-like hand
Lud wrist resting on an outstretched
ove; a colossal bronze statue of'Vlay
or New Orleans, and "Beauty's Tri
mph." All of these works are great
nid will ever be highly esteemed, but
is fame must chiefly rest on the
'Triumph of Beauty." Of this he felt
ssured, and with pleasure and conf
lence staked all his meed of praise on
hat great work, making it the chief
ifort of his genius. the bright dream
nd solace othis laborious life. It may
)e fairly called a poem in marble."

The Southern Expe-.
The original design of the Southern
Exposition at Louisville, Kentucky, was
: gather under one roof the typieal pro
ucts of Kentucky and her sister South
rn States. In Its success our people are
amost as much interested as those of
Kentucky, from the fact that whatever
:ends to advance her interests cannot
al to affect us favorably also. The Ex
~ositionwill be a splendid medium. if we
lesire to use It, through which to ad
ertise the great capacities of this State
and we earnestly hope some action will
e taken by our citizens looking to a
representation; with a little exertion on
.heir part. an exhibit of onr mineral,
gricultural. :and manufacturinmg pro
ucts can be collected and sent to Lon
sville, whmich~ will repay a thousand
old all the expense connected there
The Exposition will assuredly be a
uccess. there Is no question but that
he attendance will be largely in excess

das gone ahead of all others In the char
acter of its Art Gallery and Music.

more attractive than before, and the
Fact that Cappa and Gilmore wIll again
furnish the music is itself a guarantee
>f Its tone. The Live Stock Exhibit
will secure an immenise attendanmce. It
is stated that at one time there will be
ahown a collection of horses whose ag
