The actiion of the penitentiary au
thorities in leasing farms near Columbia
will certainly be approved by the peo
ple. The labor of the convicts can be
utilized on these farms under the direct
control and supervision of the peniten
tiary officials, and their human treat
ment will thereby be insured. Besides
giving them employment, it will de
crease the number within the walls,
which is highly necessary under its
present overcrowded condition. Com
fortable houses will be erected on these
farms as soon as possible, for the use
of the convicts.
The planters of several counties in
Alabama are said to be in such financial
distress that they are appealing to the
Legislature to relieve them by the un
constitutional, but sometimes tempo
rarily effective, expedient of a stay law.
They say their condition is due to the
short cotton crop and the extremely
low price of the staple, and they assert
that if their property is sold at forced
sale it will bring very little, and that
while their debts will remain unpaid
they will be ruined and their families
and dependents reduced to the verge of
starvation. They seem to be in a piti
able condition. All their misfortunes
come from the miserable credit system
that has been the cause of the ruin of so
many thousands of Southern planters
and business men.
All for a Dying: Child.
Thursday last was a raw wintry day.
A door bell was rung, and a delicate
middle-aged female stood on the portr.l
as the door was opened by the owner.
"You are-. I was sent here
please; my name is-." The
voice was choked with sobs. ''Come
in." The stranger with a basket on
her arm crossed the threshold and ws.s
made welcome. She was probably fif
ty. Care aud poverty had mapped her
face with many a furrow. Her dre?s
was plain aud wearing to holes. Her
hands were bare. A pair of worn shoes
were tied by extra strings to be kept to
her feet. Her story was short. "I
was sent here; I have a dear boy, only
fourteen, near Savannah, ill with con
sumption. Our friends can't keep us
without help. I work at these (hold
ing up a pretty handkerchief bag) when
you are asleep. I sell them and return
to my child with my earnings to boy
medicine. 3Iy husband died of con
sumption iu- Baltimore, I nursed him
three years and worked to feed us threij.
My child said, 'if we can get South I
may get better.' I brought him, but I
have to leave him to help support us.
You'll buy this? Thank you. God
bless you. And this too ? (a package
of toilet soap.) That is clear gain to
' me; a good .druggist gave mo that. This
shawi is a nice warm one; a dear lady of
your town pufc.it.'on nie.. Oh, the peo
ple are so kind; so kind." 'Ts your
child very sick?" She broke down witli
weeping. "Yes; he'll not last much
longer. The bard part is that I have to
leave him for a moment. I'll reach
him by day after to-morrow." She was
pressed to accept of some refreshmeut,
but the hungering of her poor heart
banished all bodily demands.. She
scarcely touched the food. "You have
a nice home; thank God for it. 1 have
always been poor; always poor. I
sometimes ask myself is God just? Ob.
yes, I know He is just, but 1 give way
at times. Poverty, ill health, homeless
ness don't strengthen the faith of some.
Good-bye; you've been so kind. The
conductor said I'd be well treated at
Orangeburg. Try, try again. That
nerves me. I'll sell anotber bag over
there you think. I'll never see you
again here, but we'll "meet up there.
Gcod-bye." The delicate creature bathed
in tears passed out. Her candor and
polite discriminations evinced better
days and-careful advantages. Poverty
chilled her through and through', but. in
several generous homes she rntifi such
kindness, that her breast glowed with
gratitude. Every day the door bells are
besieged with burly tramps, --but the pic
ture of a poor female struggling against
poverty brings back the deep meaning
sentiment which appeals to Heaven with
mighty prayer. ''God help the poor."
Juafc ae We Expected. -
It is said that Charleston is not pleas
ed with Speaker Carhlse's committee
appointments, and, judging from the
News and Couries's strictures on the
action of Mr. Carlisle in the matter, we
are inclined to think that our Charles
ton friends are real wrothy about it, and
they have a right to be. Some of the
South Carolina members should have
been appointed on the Biver and Harbor
Committee, and it does seem, that, con
sidering Charleston's importance, that
the State would have been represented
on the committee. But, of course, if
any South Carolinian had been appoint
ed to that committee it must have been
Mr. Dibble, as Charleston is id his dis
trict, and he was a Randall man, you
know. The News aud Courier thinks
that South Carolina has been scandal
ously treated in the formation of the
House committees, and iutimates that it
is about time to strip Speakers of a pow
er which is so shamefully abused. This
journal did not support Mr. Carlisle for
the Spcakership. The News and Cou
rier did. That journal held Mr. Carlisle
up as a model representative of the new
South, aud now that it liuds that it was
mistaken iu its estimate of that gentle
man it must bear its disappointment as
best it cau. Had Mr. Randall been
elected Speaker Charleston would not
have been thus treated.
In a communication to the News and
Courier last Friday Mayor Courtenav
cites this pieec of extravagance on the
part of Charleston County ofiiciels. lie
"There were thirty-two prisoners de
livered to the Penitentiary in Columbia
last year and $40 apiece charged and
paid for transportation," an outlay of
$2,080. First-class tickets to Columbia
cost $3 90 each. Cf course prisoners
are not transported in first-class coaches,
but I will make the bill out on this basis
and we have $202 80. Then assuming
that a constable had charge of two
prisoners each, (not so, of course, for
the carriage of prisoners is very differ
ent from this.) and we have for "twenty
six constables, going and returning,

"How To Re Happy Though Mar
ried," Is the alarming title of a volume
that has been presented to the Princess
The Fantastic Sandy of the Sea.
Of all the crab tribe, this is sorely the
most fantastic little fellow, and onght to
be considered the "missing link," for he
certainly has one of the first instincts of
civilization, namely, that of attempting
to cover himself with extraneous and or
namental garments. He is the dandy of
the sea. Bits of seaweed are his great re
liance, but smaU objects of almost any
kind he will appropriate, even to bits of
stone or wood. One of mine showed con
siderable taste and an idea of style, pre
ferring the most gaudy colors he conic*
find in the tank.
These little animals wiL1 spend hours
every day at the toilet, appropriating with
their handlike claws bits of ?eaweed, ser
tularia, sponge or tubular la. One will
perhaps place a bit on the tip of hie nose,
or suspend from it along, ribbon-like strip
of red or green alga?, or affix similar frag
ments to his legs, elbows or knees, as wo
may call them. He does not appear to
take these pieces at random, but has the
air of selecting tbem with care, am? then
leisurely cutting them from the large
fronds with his own nippen, of whiuh he
has two pair one upon eaehofhistwo
foremost arms. Having covered the de
sired portion, he takes it up in one of his
hand (for his nippers serve for hands as
Well as shears), and placing one end of it
lh his month, evidently deposits a piece
of mucous, or marine cement, which se
cures the object in the position which his
lordship sees fit to arrange it, and in
which matter he is somewhat fastidious.
This mueous must have great strength,
for ifi his native element he will-walk'
around thus arrayed without any danger
of. his' ornaments being washed away,
even by the roBing surf. In the tank,
when his toilet is completed, he will ad-'
vanceto the front or most conspicuous
spot he can find, and as near to the spec
tator as he can conveniently get, with a
self-satisfied air, as if to say: "I'm in Ml
dress how; how do yon like my style?"?

Mr. Lamar'a Philosophical Neighbor.
Secretary Lamar doubtless finds in
spiration in the study of a great local
character who was the fighter of Mr.
Lamar's neighborhood when the latter
was a mere boy. This fighter was a
planter by the name of James B. Zackery.
His dialect aud exploits were most hap
pily described by Mr. Lamar at a recent
dinner. Zackery, in his best days,
whipped everything before him. One
day young Lamar asked the fighter to
give him the secret of his success. He
"Zackery, it can't be that you are big
ger and stronger than everybody."
Zackery replied: "Well, Lucius, I jest
explains it this yer way: When I goes
into a fight I takes a good swar that I'm
goin' to stay right tharl Mr. Lucius,"
added ho, "flghtiir is, I reckon, tho most
tiresomest business there is. When the
other follow'begins to get his tire on, then
your.stayin' right thar will beat him,
'? It was Zackery who, in condoling with
a neighbor who had lost a good and faith
ful wife, said: - "I am sorry for you; I
know of no thin' that ungears a man so as
to lose his wife." Toward the close of his
Ufa Zackery experienced religion. As -he
was lying upon his death-bed a neighbor,
came in and said:
"Well, Zackery, yon '-rill, have to .go
soon, I am told."
"An is agreeable to nater," was his polite
and conservative reply.
When asked if he thought his sins rrere
all forgiven, he Mid, with even-greater
conservatism: "I reckon the heft of them
are."?New York World.

The demoralization of the laboring ele
ment by emancipation and the low priee
of coffee have reduced their incomes, and
they buy their wines aiid fine clothes by
plastering mortgages over the plantations
they have inherited. Thus the English
men who already have a monopoly of the
country, are gathering in the lands, and
it wiU not be many years before the
Portuguese aristocracy will be simply
tenants upon their ancestral estates.
These Englishmen are making big
profits out of the Brazilian trade, and
particularly in the sale of coffee to the
United States. The coffee crop, or rather
the surplus for export, is worth from
$45,000,000 to $60,000,000 a year. The com
mission men make advances in cash some
times, but more often in supplies to the
planters, get a big profit on the goods and
a big interest on the cash, and take the
crop in payment. As often as otherwise
?for the Brazilian is a Spendthrift and
knows nothing of economy?the crop will
not cover the advances, and the English
men seldom permit it to, so that the
mortgage laps over on the plantation.?

Tho Government's School Farms.
There are many queer attachments to
this great and complicated machinery of
government. How many people know
that the United Stales is a landlord on
quite a large scale, and that, too, in the
old hotbed of states' right, South Caro
lina? Titles to no less than eighteen
farms in that state are vested in the na
tion. These improved places vary in size
from forty to S00 acres,. the average being
about 100 acres. They were bid in by tax
commissioners of the United States awaj
back in reconstruction days, and under
the existing statutes no authority can be
found to permit their redemption or to
seU them. Congress passed an act twelve
of fifteen years ago providing for the dis
position of the income from the farms.
They are in the custody of the internal
revenue collector, who adds to his ordi
nary duties of looking after the tax on
liquors and tobacco the renting and keep
ing up of the property.?Washington

MOUNTAINS OF PRINTED MATTER.
Tons ..ooks and Copyrighted Matter
Piled Up in tho National Library.
I have been spending a busy hour with
the busiest man in Washington. For nine
years tho project for building a suitable
and safe deposit for our books, maps,
pictures, photographs, lithographs, and
all sorts of printing matter, has been agi
tated by those who have the good of the
land ut heart. About five years ago the
bill passed the senate. Delay was all
that proYeuted the bill from becoming a
law at that time. Two years ago It came
up again, and again it was delayed in the
house and laid over, having twice passed
the senate. Meantime, daring these nine
years, the increase of the product of the
land in this line has simply heaped up
mountains of printed matter, with uo
place to put it. A goat or a Rocky
mountain ram might enjoy a leap and
ramble through the library of oongress as
it now appears, but hardly a human be
tons upon to kb of matter.
Let up see. Here axe four stories of
books; each story is of Iren, all safe and
solid enough. But there Is no room; no
longer room to turn around in or place
anything at all in' order. There was at
first room for 800,000 books; but the libra
rian has found room, after a fashion, for
more than 400,000, to'say nothing of the -
mountains and threatening avalanches of
maps, chromoc, charts, lithographs, pho
tographs, and indeed all sorts of pictures
and prints that'must, under the copyright
laws, find place here.

the dark storage-rooms in the basement.

Are! And suppose this man should die
who has so long heon at the head of the
library, and has had to carry aU this con
fusion and chaos in his mind for so many
years, who could put all this disorder to
rights? Does this seem strange? It Is a
proper interrogation. No man living
could do it.
Ainsworth R. Spofford, librarian of con
gress, is not only the busiest man in
Washington but perhaps the most learned
man In his line in America. Not a con
gressman who has ever been in this
library and asked for a book or anything
else to be had hero will dispute that.
Thore is not a senator who does not,
figuratively if not in fact, take off his hat
at mention of this little man who has
been in charge here since long before

what patience and quiet good-nature he
has continued to put np with aU thin

I may mention that I found in the form of

The Art of Seating en Audience.
You probably are not aware of the fact
that It is a fine art to distribute a smaU
audience so that the people in it will not
feel lonesome. You, like everybody else
who goes to the theatre, have frequently
been shown to your place by the usher
only to be made to feel that you were the
moat conspicuous individual on the floor.
With tier after tier of empty seats gaping
aU around a feUow, the sense of loneliness
is sometimes very oppressive. I have fled
from many a good performance rather
than sit in a house like the last man on
earth on the judgment day. Nothing is
more desolate than an empty theatre.
Now, if the treasurer, or ticket-seller, is
an adept, skilled in his trade, he will so
apportion a small sale that a sparse house
wiU be made to look big. This is done by
a nice acquaintance with his chairs and
the science of distribution, four and five
people being seated here, as many more
there, and twice as many there, the ob
ject being to make a little collection of
heads visible in which ever direction one
looks, and the squads so grouped as to
cover the beggarly urray of empty benches
by bringing the heads in range of one an
other. A clever treasurer wiU scat a $100
