Cant Afford to Marry.
There are $25,000 young men in
Chicago to-day who cannot afford
to marry-that is, they cannot afford
to marry the averago city girl, with
her passion for dress, and bonnets,
and jewelry. That is what they say.
Possibly a little frank consultation
-tveon the two would pave the
way to explanation and satisfactory
arrangements.; but how to have sucih
consultation ? Thro's the rub.

ly well understood effect. And it
will increase as the mnber of the
unmarried increise, until every con
siderablo city of this country will
become a miniaturo Paris, save with
a sadder result, as our national
temperament is capable of deeper
and more terrible remorse. The
ratio of unmarried persons is con
stantly augmenting, and the ques
tion of a rcmninnd is one that deserves
the gravest consideration. In the
older settlements the jontales pre
dominate in such numife t that mar
riage for a large proportion is im
possible in every event. In the
newer parts of the country, where
the sexes are in about equal numbers
the question of expense frightens
?ho would-be husband, and the re
suit is quite as bad. The way to
reform is not plain, though the
nonessity for it is indisputable.

The Term of Office of tbe Cireuitoudges
Au Imporlant Question.'
The decision of the supreme court
of this state in the case of Wright vs.
Charles (4th volume of Iiohardson's
Reports, page 178) has an important
bearing, it seems to us, upon the
election of circuit judges, in estab
lishing the principle that whore a
term of office is fixed by the consti
'tution a person elected to such office,
whether to fill a vacancy or not, must
hold office for the full term. Under
this decision (if it be applicable to
circuit judges) the term of Judge
Carpenter (elected December 13,
1872) does not expire until Decem
ber, 1876 ; that of Judge Cooke
(elected January 14, 1873) until
January, 1877 ; that of Judge Rce:l
(elected December, 1874) until De
cember, 1878; and that of Judge
Shaw (elected January, 1878) until
January, 1879. The judges named
wore elected to fill vacancies caused
by death or resignation of office, and
were elected for the unexpired terms
of those whon they succeeded ; but,
as we understand it, the decision in
Wright vs. Charles gives them,
nevertheless, the right to hold office
for the full term of four yells, fi&ed
by the constitution.
In June, 1808, a man named Moss,
was elected c)erk of the court in
Darlington county, but failed to
qualify. Au election was hold on
May 25, 1869, to fill the vacancy, and
Wm. E. Charles was elected. At the
general election in October, 1872,
Johnathan Wright was elected to
the office, and on November 26 - was
commissioned by the Governor.
Wright qualified on November 28,
and demanded possession of the
office, which was refused, and the
question before the court was wheth
er Charles should huve surrendered
The state constitution provides
(article 4, section 27) for the election
in each county of one clerk for the
court of common pleas, "who shall
hold his office for the term of four
years." And in the case of circuit
judges the . constitutional provision
(article 4, section 13) is that "for
each circuit a judge shall be elec;ted
by joint ballot of the general assem
bly, who shall hold his office for a
term of four years." We shall see
that the decision in Wright vs.
Charles covers the case of a circuit
Judge as fully as that of the cleric of
The supreme court say: "The
term office being fixed by the consti
tution, the party holding it by elec
tion is entitled to all the rights,
powe: s and incidents which belong
or pertain to it, and, by what course
of reasoning the duration of the term
is not included among them, it is
difficult to perceive. The person
elected to fill a vacancy does not
succeed to the unexpired portion of
the term of his predecessor, but
holds by a determinate tenure pre
scribed by the constitution. The
vaccncy exists in the office, the term
is the duration of it, not dependent
on the death or resignation of the
person holding it, but on the law.
No matter how the office becomes
vacant, the party elected to succeed
to it is not in as the more locumn
teenons, only supplying the term of
thme person who last succeeded him.
If the legislature had, by express en
actment, declared that one elected
to fill the unexpired term of office of
clerk, made vacant 'by any cause,
should duly hold for such term, it
would have been inoperative and
void, for as was said by Mr. Justice
Wright, in the opinion of the court
in Roister vs. Heomphill, 2 S. C., 335,
whore the organic law fixes the term
of offico, it is not in the p)ower of the
legislature, by an act, to change that
term."* * *"The question is
not as to the mode of filling thme va
omancy, but the tenure by which the
party elected shall hold the office."
*** "Ini fact, every election is
to supply a vacancy, no matter how
am ising." The unpreme court found
authority on the questions raised in
various cases in this state and in
Now York, and rendered jnmdgmnt

It was a Bee.
Any one passing along Howard
street just before noon, yesterday
would have seen him lying under one
of the shade - trees in his yard, a pil
low under his head, his feet on a
bench, and a magazine in his hands.
He looked the picture of comfort
and contentment, and the women
who were;going along with pull-back
dresses on sighed and wished they
The great City hall bell struck the
hour of noon. The deep toned
echoes floated out on the still sum
mer air and touched a tender chord
in the Howard street man's heart.
The echoes sounded to him like fu
neral whispers-like the whispers of
the night wind sighing through the
grand old wilderness.
"Oh I solenn bell ! he said. 'Oh
That was all he said about the
bell. A bumble bee settled down on
him to look for sugar, and as he
turned partly over he gave the bee a
rub. It is a bad thing to rub any
kind of a bee. He feels insulted and
gets annoyed when a mud turtle or
a dove would pass by without a
thought. The echoes had just died
away when the Howard street man
got up. He got up like a man in a
hurry. He went away from there.
He didn't meander-he went like a
rocket. Something seemed to ail
him. He made a line for the house,
went up the steps at a bound, and as
his wife asked him the cause of his
haste, he replied :
"Thunder-oop ! hoop !"
'Is the house on fire ? she asked,
as he toi e around the parlor and
'House be-oop ? Lordy !' he an
swered, as he' made a circle of the
room and dashed into the hall.
The dog rushed after him, the
wife after the dog, and the man
bounded out of the house.
'Are you crazy, Robert?' shrieked
his wife as she behield him pounding
his legs with his new silk hat.
Two or three boys ran in from the
street, a strange dog came in and
got up a fight, and all things con
spired to make a lively time.
"He's got the colic I' yelled one of
"Or the tremens !" shouted an
'See that hat !' called a third.
'Boys, go out of here !' whispered
the panting man, as he stopped us
ing his hat. They went out, and he
stopped using his hat. They went
out as he limped into the house, his
tearful wife wife asked
'Now, then, will you tell me what
has happened ?"
'No, I won't!' he shouted, and he
didn't. She fell into hysterics at the
thought that he had used his brain
too much, and had suddenly become
crazed, and he went dowvn to the
drug store and applied arnica to the
spot, and informed the clerk that
eleven thousand of the biggest kind
of bumble bees had settled right
down on him in a body.-1Dotroit

A Chewlil Protenc ror Converting iron
The Wilmington papers of a late
date describe an exhibition given by
Prof. William Field, of that city, of
a new process of converting cast
iron into steel by chemical process.
The process is probably a secret, but
the nianipulation is described. Some
hundreds of pounds of ordinary cast
iron Were first made, we suppose for
prposes of comparison, and then
e olten iron was taken in pots
and ladles containing from twenty to
twehlty-fivo pounds, and "the amal
gra' put into each. The metal
after being stoved was ready to be
cast into moulds and in less than five
minutes after the amalgam was put
in the iron, was converted to stool.
A niunber of articles were east from
the metal-a bar of railroad steel,
horse shoes, a razor and a plowshare.
The tools were said to be of the best
quality. The newspapers report
that the steel may be made malleable
by the process or as hard as is de
sired. If a part of the carbon which
cast iron contains can be removed by
chemical means as described above,
the. process will prove as valuable in
opposition to the Bessemer, as the
latter was superior in most respects
to the process of cementation.

git, in a very appreciative notice of
Dr. Porcher's "Resources of the
Southern Fields and Forests," takes
occasion to say the following true
words about the Southern States :
"If the Southern United States
are not the garden of all the world,
it is rather the fault of those who
are responsible for their cultivation
and development than from any
natural inferiority to any other land
on the face of the earth. It occurs
to every mind that this is the home
of the chief products which civiliza
tion demands. Cotton, sugar, and
tobacco are products of such im
menhity as to dwarf those which
other lands bring forth, and yet
these are not all. Vast quantities
of wheat and rice are exported and
a luxuri'att, but uncultivated vegeta
tion'!esides testifies to the immone
resources which are forthcoming.
These Southern States comprehend
an area of territory equalling that
of Great Britain, France and Ger
many. Watered by tho grandest
rivers and rich in every variety of
soil, with millions of acres of dismal
swamp yet unreclaimed, there is a
future for this district which will
make it a territory to which all the
world will turn for its vegetable
SHOCKING ODEAL FOR A YouNo FAc
TORY GIL.-At Remington Station,
on the Cincinnati and Marietta Rail
road, Carrie Dawson, employed in a
paper mill, while standing near a
revolving shaft, was caught by her
hair and the scalp torn from her
head, stripping the skin from the
back of her neck to the eyebrows.
A considerable time elapsed before
medical aid reached her, and it was
not deemed advisable to attempt to
restore the lifeless scalp to its for

taking a small pice of scalp from

We publish on another page of
this issue, an article from the Winns
boro Nxws, headed "Our Policy," in
which it takes occasion to say, that
on the question of re-organizing the
Democratic party of this State, the
Pickens &entinel "declares for war."
Now, while we advocate a thorough
organization- f the party and a
straight ticket in the next and all
future elections in the State, and
have not yet soon sufficient reasons
advanced in opposition to this
course to change our opinion, we
are not so obstinate as to refuse to
co-operate with the party, should it
choose to pursue a different course ;
nor are we so ogotistic as to believe
our opinion will have much to do
with the future course of the party.
In the discussion of this question,
we notice that there is not a Demo
cratic paper in the State but what
desires some kind of organization i
but some of them oppose a Domo
cratic organization. We should
like to be informed how they propose
to organize, unless it is as Demo
crats ? Do they propose to organize
as Republicans Y If so the organiza.
tion is already completed, and they
have nothing to do only to stay in.
But this we know, they do not intend
to do, and we are anxious to know
how the other organization is to be
effected, and what its name is to be.
It is already conceived, and as it has
no gender, we do not see any impro
priety in giving it a name before its
birth. So let us have the name.
But we have digressed. We started
out in this article to say that we are
not "for war," nor do we advocate
any extreme measure whatever.
We want an organization so that the
Democrats throughout the whole
State can moot in. convention,
through their chosen representatives
and counsel together, and if they
should deem it unwise or impolitic
to rim a straight ticket, let them
decide what course we shall take and'
not leave it to the dictation of some
radical clique in the State. We be
lieve there are enough honest Re
publicans who would co-operate
with the Democrats to carry the
elections, provided the Democrats
would only define their course in
some authoritative way. So they
might be as.urol that tuere would
ha no division aunong them.-ick
The Crown Princess or Prussia.
One of the fascinating features of
the recent manouvers of the Ger
man army in Silesia was the appear
ance on the field of the Crown
Princess of Prussia, daughter of
Victori'i and the future Empress of
Germany. First ksho appeared at
the head of of the regiment of which
she is chief ; then on the arm of the
Kaises, winning Silesian hearts by
her dash on the field of parade and
her amiability and grace. The Ger
mans are very proud of their future
Queen and Empress. The Emperor,
too, appeared delighted with his
daughter-in-law when he saw her
leading at a hot pace her regiment of
hussars past him and his guests.
Regiment after regiment filed by the
Kaiser, every man behaving at his
host. The Crown Princess, as
Chief of the Second Hfuzzars, led1
h1er regiment p~ast the tribune, sit

fully groeting theoKaiser by touching
her cap with the silver handle of her
riding whip, and then, swinging
round, dashed up to the suite, guid
in g her horse up to the Kamser's
side. Enthusiastic hurraha greeted
her, handkerchiefs finuttered, and
the Kaiser took her hand and thank
ed her in a very affectionate manner.
Th'le Prineoss came up slightly flush

ladies delared she looked charming.

A Montreal dispatch says : The
preparations for the interment of
Guibord are being prosecuted with
vigor. The stone sarcophagus in
which Guibord's remains are to be
enclosed is being made by -Mr.
Robert Reid, of this city, one of
the most skilful workers in marble
in Canada. The two blocks, of
Montreal limOstoe frpm whicki .t
cofin is tobe made were cut in
quarry at Cote St. Louis. fah
tone is seven feet long, fou'r feet
wide, and about two feet thick. ~'In
each stono a cavity is to be cut of
sEIftoient width and depth to hold
the coffin in which Guib'ard's body
is now onolosed. The wooden cofin
having been placed in one of the
cavities, the two stones will be ac
curately fitted to each other and
fastened together with heavy - iron ",
bolts driven through each stone and
riveted at each end. The whole
surface of the sarcophagus will
then be covered with a layer of
Portland cement, mixed with scrap
iron, of a thickness sufficient to
resist the most powerful drills.
The stone coffin will weigh nearly
nine tons. Mr. Reid expect' to
have it completed on Saturday next.
The interment will be made within
two or three days after the com
pletion of the coffin.
Guibord, it will be remembered,
was denied burial in the Roman
Catholic cemetery, and the aid of
the British Courts was invoked.
They ordered burial to be granted,
and then the priest cursed the
ground in which he was to be
buried. These precautions are to
prevent the body being stolen.

The Code of Procedure, page 637,
See. 291 provides as follows :
"Upon the trial of a question of
fact by the court, its decision shall
be given in writing and shall contain
a statement of the facts found, and
the conclusions of law, separately:
and, upon a trial of an issue of law,
the decision shall be made in the
same manner, stating the conelu
sions of law. SBus decisiun. shall
be plled with the clerk wtthin sixly

trial took place. Judgment upon
the decision shall be entered. accord
The Constitution, Art. IV Soc. 17
also says : "It shall be the duty of
the Judges of the Supreme and
Circuit Courts to file their decisions
within sixty days from the last day
of the term of court at which the
causes were heard."
The question is-is a decision filed
after the expiration of the sixty
days legal ? Can a legal judgment
be entered up and enforced upon
such a decision ?
To say the least of it, it would
appear to be questionable, and
Judges ought to come within the
terms of the law, and file all decis
