Scott's Tactics.
An Xikcrvicw willt iUc JEx
Govcrnor.
What Scott Has t) Say to an Ohio Ro
jioiicr?Ho Proposes to Ret aim to-the
Palmetto State. !
Kk Governor R. K. Scott, who is in
Napoleon, Obi \ has been interview
ed by a reporter fer the Toledo Sun
day -Journalj and thus delivers him
self-:
"I suppose, Governor, that yon are
abotft .prepared to make this .place
your borne again ?'v ;
"No, sir, South Carolina is my
home-?-it is the only home I have. I
like her people, and have'identified
my interests and myscl'f with them. I
havc.no intention of removing."
"W'-bat have you to say ot Hayes'
'pd'iey,"' and of the administration of
Hampton?'1
' Hayes has adopted the policy for
v\htch I hoped aiitl looked ever since
IS70. 1 indicated that policy in
several public com>Miunicatious and
a'hlresM.'S?tor instiiHcCy in an address
tlcliveied at Jcnkitisvi le, u.i the 4th
of July, 1S7I1; alto iu a letter to
Lit ill. Gov. G'-eaves, in 1S75 and
you certainly remember the address
which J delivered at this idaee iu
July. IST?, on the occasion of the
reunion of my old regiment. Don't
you remember the little hell which
the Radical Republicans raised about
it at the time.? Here is what I said
iu conclusion : 'Ijet us forget that
there has been a war. Let us oblite
rate every evidence that remains of
the strifi , ami meet on a common
platform of truth and justice, with t he
love of a common country as a bond
of union, that shall unite us and our
posterity for all future time."'
"And what ofHampton?"
"I have never had confidence in a
government largely controlled by a
population just disenthralled from
slavery. The persons to successfully
govern an intelligent people, such ns
ours, must themselves be educated
and intelligent. The educated white
people of the South would have ob
tained control of tho State Govern
ments long before this, had their pre
judices been less bitter and the hatreds
growing out of the war less intense;
and had they adopted the situation
and pursued the policy which I Iain p
ton did last full. The policy which
Hayes has adopted will return pros
perity tt> the South; the Government
of Ham pi on will inspire confidence,
as it will be honestly and faithfully
administered."
"What effect will this policy have
in the future upon the political
organizations of tho South?will
Democrats leave their organization
and 'jine the gang' with Stanley ?"
"I Uiink not. There may be di
visions in the Democratic party, but
they will be upon men, and purely
local?iu national politics, or, rather
in political organizations, Democrats
will remain loyal to their party. It
is true that more charity, if I may so
call it, will bo entertained for tho
Republican party, and more confi
dence reposed in it; but the 'policy,'
as it is called, is in the South espe
cially, rogariled as the offspring of
the Democratic party, which party,
aided by Conservative Republican,
forced recognition from the adminis
fcrution. The negro clement, the
main support of the Republican party,
will l.o largely controlled by the
Democrats hereafter, and the colored
vote will be cast more for men than
lor party. Heretofore tli3 attach
ment and devotion of that race to the
Republicans was owing largely to the
fear entertained that the success of
the Democratic party would result in
an abridgment of the rights of citizen
ship. The course of Hampton dis
pels this apprehension. Hampton is
honestly carrying out the promises
which he made during the campaign,
lie has already appointed moro color
ed men to office than were appointed
during the entire two first years that
I was'Governor, which were the first
of reconstruction "
"And what do you think will bo
?the future of the colored race tu the
South.?"
"I think that they will quietly and
tpcaocably enjoy all civil rights as
guaranteed to all other citizens. I
believe, ho wovor, that an apprecia
tion ofthcir own good and advantage
will gradually eliminate thorn from
?alt least nit active participation;in
fwMtics. They arc a race very easily
?controlled. Labor is their field of
?usefulness, and they are especially
?suited to the fields and the cliinato of
'the South. It was a mistake to draw
'them prominently into partisan poli
tics? the white man (a fact which
must be conceded,) being the super
ior, will never consent to be goverued
by an inferior."
"If, as I understand you, the Demo
cratic party will grjw stronger in the
South by acquisitions from the color
ed vote; what say you as to an ex -
('onfederate for the next President,
which will probably be urged by the
South ?'?
"I tlnnk that the people of both the
North and the South could support a
man like IZnmprnn with poufootcot'-,
sistoncy, and without the surrender
of a particle of principle, and no
more compromise of honor than a
Con f?derale makes in the support of
a Northern man. The causes which
led to ihe war grew out of our politi
cal system?the Ham i I Ionian und
Jeffersonian ideas of government?
consolidation and State sovereignty,
Slate rights; in a word, Hampton be
lieves in the teachings of (Jalhouu,
I and that he owed his first allegiance
11 his own S ate?the people -of the
i North believed otherwise, and the
conflict came. The disagreement has
become accord. Before the outbreak,
as -is well known, Hampton was a
Uuion man?he is now as loyal as
nny citizen in the country, and at
the head of the government, would
! administer its affairs as honestly, as
ably, and as faithfully as any states
man of the North possibly could do.
Looking at the country in the light
of the recent strikes, it seems to ihe
that the most reliable conservative
men will be found in the South.
There the relation of capital and la
bor is best ui iierstood, and Lbe most
respect entertained,* for eaoli other.
] The South also possesses within her
self the means of suppressing every
thing tending to communism. When
the folly of the government in disfran
chising citizens on account of their
political opinions is fully appreciated,
then there will he nothing more to
! prevent a Union soldier voting for a
Confederate, than there now is to re
strain a Southerner from voting for a
man from the North."
''.Excuse my curiosity, but what
have you to say of ihe prosecutions
now pending against Moses and
others V"
"Jt. is a delicate subject for me to
tulk about. I consider the prosecu
tions unwise. They aro the result of
the political complications growing
out of tlio war,"
"How with the Federal officers in
the-South i"
"The Federal, especially the reve
nue officers, should be taken from the
natives. Many of the lower classes
have been in lite habit of distilling
their surplus stock; they cannot be
made to understand or appreciate, the
revenue laws?they are like tho Irish
and lha Kngiish?ami the Northern
men sent down there- nt'o more dis
posed to arrest and annoy than to in

government of the Soulh is now safe
in the hands of those toVNp?-}i it pro
perly belong!', and it Jgjp be much
more honestly administered than it
will by mere adventurers from the
North." j\
'? Who, Governor, do ycti think will
be the next United Stab*? Senator ?
Corhin or Butler ?" i
"It is difficult to sq-V >vho will be

can' be no question. X? a tier is tho

'She is nobody ! Only, d post trad

Only one Marshal failed to obey
commands at. Waterloo, on that mem
orable 18th of June, but it broke the
proud heart of N apoleon, caused de
feat to be written on the French ban

untold glory to Wellington and joy
to the allied English and German
troops. Of this defeat* theirs wrote:

Only one gltus more. The thirst

Chemists tell us that only one grain
of iodine imparts color to seven thous

j infinite importance, (iod grant us
j grace to comprehend the vastness of
the brief word only, ere it be too late.
Blow Your Own Horn.?Blow
your own horn. Yes, give it a blast,
and let modesty blush if it will. This
false delicacy has been the stumbling
block of thousands of really good and
capable men. Make a noise it will
attract somebody. Let the world
know that you arealivoand intend to
drive things until you get to tho top
of the hill and make a fortune. To the
man of energy and pcrseverauco
mountains are but mole hills. 'Tis
only tho a roues that fail. Thoy arc
always looking on tho black side,
predicting disasters, alvt ays complain
ing of the hard times, always waiting
for something to turu up. Such men
never will find good times nor pros
perity. Neither nill they ever find
friends or admirers among the first
class business men. If you would
succeed in anything, don't stand still.
(Jo ahead, Don't be afraid. Do some
thing. If you don't blow tho horn
somebody else will, but not for your
benefit except ' in a horn."
An Idyl of Ice-Oream.
How tho Girl Absorbed Countless Saucers

It was the wild midnight. The
'amc midnight was oil'watch and had
gone to bed three hours before. A
storm brooded over the eastern heav
ens. It wa? a thoroughbred brood
storm. Hopbrewe.l, for it was com
ing from the yeast. Hawkeye creek
was rolling tttmultuously in its s tudy
bed. A lithn form cowered at the

*He docs not come,' she murin tired,
softly, as she peered into she dark
ness.
'I cannot sec him. I will call him.'
She wa3 wrong. If she couldn't see
him, she ccr.ainly couldn't call bi n
with the sumo hand. A manly step
came scraping down tho sidewalk. It
was Desmond.
She. threw open the gats, ami the
next instant he clasped in his great,
strong arms twenty?seven yards of
foulard, three yards of raching, seven
dozen Breton buttons and a Pompa
dour punier as big as a doghouse. It
was all his own.
'AH is lost,'he exclaimed. 'Con
stance de Belviderc, the Russians
have crossed the Balkans. Wo must
fly.'
Constance was a noble girl. She
only said: 'Whither shall wo fly?'
lie wanted to fly to some lone de
sert isle, but she submitted an aninid
ment providing thatllliey should fly
to the ice-cream saloon.
They flew,

At length Desmond broke the
tender tilence. He said:
'More, ?loarest ?'
She smiled and bowed her lovely
head, but did not speak. She was too
full for utterance.
Desmond gljoinily ordered m >r o.
And more when that was gone. A ml
And a supplement to that. And an
addenda to that. An 1 an exhibit to
that.
Gloom sat enthroned upon his
brow. Constance saw it. She said :
'What is it. dearest?'
A dreadful suspicion stabbed her'
heart like a knife.
'Desmond,' she said, 'you are not
tired of me, darling ?'
'By Heaven, no,' he said, an 1 then
he looked (and thought) unutterable
things.
Her brow lightened tip with a ray
of celestial in tell ig >.t v.
*I see,' she said, tapping I be empty
plate with her spoon. 'Too cold.
Signed U. Morhur.'
He denied it bi'terly, and b i le her
remain where she was while he set
tled with the m in.
She, guided by the uneriing in
stinet of her sox, peeped through the
curtains of the salo in. S u: saw her
Desmo ml holding earnest discussion
with the man. She unv the man shake
his head resolutely in answer to Des
mond's pleading looks and appealing
gestures. She saw him lock the door,
takeout the key, put it in his packet
and lean up ngain.-t the door. She
saw her own Desmond draw from his
own pockets and pile up on tho coun
ter a pearl-handle pocket-knife, six
nickels, four green postage-stamps a
watch-key, two lead pencils, a
memorandum-book, a theater ticket
(of the variety denomination), a pock
el comb, an ivory toothpick, a shirt
stud, one sleeve-button, a photograph
of heiself, a package of trix, two
street-car checks,a card with a funny
story on it, a silk handkerchief and a
pair of gloves. And thou she know
that Dosmond was a bankrupt, and
when the man swept the assets of tho
concern into a drawer and opened the
door she sobbed convulsively: 'And
it wn.-t mine extravagance which hath
did this thing.'
They did not talk much on their
way home. Or.cc she had asked him
if he was rich, and ho only said :

Something iu[the Bed.
Judge Pitman has a habit of slip
ping his watch under his pillow when
he gbpi to bed. The other ni'dit some?
how it slipped down, as the Judge
was restless, it gtadttuliy worked its"
way downward toward' tho foot of tbi
l ed. After a b t, while be w is laying
awake, his foot touched it, it folt very
cold: Ho was surprised and scared,
and, jumping from bed, he said :
'By gracious, Maria! there's a
toad ?rsnake or something under the
cover. 1 touched it with my foot.'
M:*\ Pitman, gave, a loud scream ,
and was out en the floor in an instant.
'Now, don't go to hollering and
wake up the neighbors,' said tho
Judge, 'You go and get me a broom
or something, and ive'il fix tho thing
mighty quick.'
Mrs. Pitm 01. got the broom and
gave it to the Judge, with the re
mark that she felt as if snakes were
creeping all up a lid down her back.
'0, nonsense, Maria! Now you
turn down the cover slowly, while I
hold tho broom and bang it. Put a
bucket of water-along side the bed,
too, so.'s we can shove it in and drown
it.'
Mrs. Pit mail fixed tho bucket and
gently removed tho covers. Tho
Judge held tho broom uplifted, and
as soon as tho bhick ribbon of tho
watch was ' revealed cracked away,
three or four times with his broom
-fheii pu.-died - tire ?'-tMng.t>ft' into the
bucket to tho light to investigate tho
matter. When the Judge saw what
it was, lie said :
?I might have known that. Just

j fussing about nothing. Who's going

a dollar a peck.
*"Foiir dollars a bushc-e-e-1!" she
almost .-bricked.
"V.s'm."
"And do you think P11 buy'em at
that rate ?"
"Yes'm "
"Well, I won't! it's a shame, sir, a
burning shame, and, I for one won't

rants being four dollars per bushel
when wood is only five dollars per

"You don't have to saw and split
and pile currants," remarked tho
grocer.
"( aii't help if, can't help it," she
replied as rdio moved on. "I like
