Colleges, State and Denominational.
Editor Times'and Democrat:
As the farmers at the next election
will decide by their ballots the differ
ence between .these colleges it is well
that we discuss through your columns
their several merits. I suppose a far
mer has the right to dabble in politics
a little. Let us see if we understand
the difference existing between them.
The denominational colleges complain
that free tuition to students able to
pay, is unjust, unfair and unconstitu
tional and through a committee request
ed that objectional feature removed;
which the Trustees and the South Car
olina Legislature refused to do. Which
is in the right? It is the plain duty of
the voter to decide at the next election.
Let us examine if the complaints are
well founded. What injustice is it to
the Denominational Colleges if the
State College grants tuition free? An
swer: It gives to the State College
student 40"or 50 dollars advantage over
the denominational student, and will
draw students that would otherwise
patronize Denominational Colleges. It
creates an unfair and unjust competi
tion. When the friends of the college
asked the legislature for an appropriar
tion to re-open the institution, there
were a majority of staunch farmers
members at the time and paid particu
lar attention to the arguments used,
pro and con. The arguments of a
member who opposed the re-opening of
the institution was as follows. That
their was no necessity for South Caro
lina in her embarrassed condition to
establish a university. That there
were several Denomiuational Colleges
which educated her sons well during
the days of our depression. That if
we reopened the State Institution it
would injure these institutions. Now,
Mr. Editor, to my mind, this free tuition
is a thrust at the very vitals of these
colleges. The friends of the college
argued that there would be no unfair
competition. That the honest rivalry
created will build up the Denomina
tional Schools rather than detract from
them. There was nothing said about
free tuition in the discussion at the re
opening of the institution. In my next
I will say something about this. I
hope some friend will discuss this
subject with me calmly. There is no
light nor quarrel, neither am I a Till
-?man man. A Farmer.

Queen Victoria's Daughtcr-ln-Law.
If reports be true, the princess of Wales
is an eminently clever milliner and gives
finishing touches to all her own bonnets
and hats, and judging from the individ
uality of her taste in the directior, it is
quite likely rumor may be safely cred
ited. A very pretty story has long been
current as to the royal lady's gift of art.
Not a member of the royal family, not a
person intimately attached to the court,
could venture to suggest that after long
years the queen's mourning might with
advantage be lessened, whereupon the
princess of Wales gently took the matter
m Without a word to anybody she re
modeled the queen's somber bonnet, re
moving the '?weeds." and, with a few
artistic touches, relieved her majesty's
head-covering of its mournful aspect.
Silently the queen submitted to the
change, but all the court knew she did
so for her daughter-in-law's sweet sake.
Singers Do Not Trust to Luck.
Adelina Patti sang a new song, called
"Darling Mine," in London recently,
with extraordinary effect. The author
of the song relates that after having
tried it over and over again some time
ago, she sang it on the morning of the
concert four times through, and in the
artist's room, before going on the stage,
she studied every note and floritura, as if
her fame depended on the performance.
She then turned around and asked him:
"Etes-vous content?"?are you satisfied?

life on Board a Torpedo Boat.
The officers and men in charge of the
torpedo "boats have no pleasant time of
it. The steel plates of which a first-class
torpedo boat is built are only an eighth
of an inch tldck, some of the smaller
ones are only one-sixteenth of an inch,
and the consequent weakness of
structure, with their great length in pro
portion to breadth, makes the strain of
rising and falling in a short sea apt to
break their backs. In such a sea, there
fore, it is dangerous to drive them at
less than eight to ten miles an hour, when
they go tlurough the waves instead of
over them. I
At about this speed in most boats the
vibrations of the engines and the vibra
tions of the boat synchronize, and the
combined oscillations make the bow and
stern of the boat wave up and down till
they nod at each other. Men who are
standing on the deck astern jump up and
down like marionets. Even in absolutely
smooth water, when you sit in the small
cabin and try to eat, your knife and fork
clatter on your plate like castanets. The
water sweeps clean over the deck, which,
after awliile, the vibration makes to leak
like a sieve, so that everything below?
clothes, beds, etc.,?is wet through.
Truly service in a torpedo boat is not one
of pleasure.?All the Year Round.
How Dead Folks arc Photographed.
Photographing dead people is a com
moner thing nowadays than one would
suppose, when photographs from life
may be had so cheaply; but folks go
along from day to day putting off the
taking of their pictures, or they forget it,
until sickness reaches out and gets tfiem,
and the next thing their friends know
the}' are dead. A few hours before con
signing their remains to the grave the
relatives recall the fact that there is no
picture of the dead and they rush out for
for a photographer.
A picture taken under such conditions
as those found in the corpse-room can
not be the best in the world. The casket
must be uprighted, and we have to do as
Well as circumstances will permit in the
matter of light. Sometimes the eyes are
pushed open, but usually the remains are
photographed as 'they appear in death,
and from that picture a life picture must
be worked out by our crayon artist. I
have made many portraits of dead peo
? ple in that'way, and, as a rule, a photog
rapher who knows his business gets a
good portrait. The charge usually made
for photographing a corpse is ?20, wliich
of course does not include the cost of the

Cloth Crom the Blulberry Tree.
? Two days later we reached Levuka (in
island of Ovalau), the former capital of
Fiji and principal European town, and
found what we had searched for vainly
m Suva?tapa, a cloth made out of the
bark of the mulberry tree. The process
of making it is by beating it out to the
required substance after the outer rind is
stripped off; it is then moistened and
pressed together to the size required, in
lengths varying from three to 100 feet.
It is then stained with natural dyes in
primitive but artistic patterns. Soma.

marked that they give the impression of
having been traced with an etching pen.
These fine specimens are perhaps less use
fid for decoration than the bolder de
signs, which are much used by the better
class of natives for their 6ulus. Those of
a cinnamon color fall in well with their
burnished bronze skins and thick dark
hair, of which they are justly proud.

The Wonders of Chalcedony Park.
The silicified forest of Arizona, known
as Chalcedony park, is undoubtedly one
of the greatest of American wonders, re
marks Mr. George F. Kunz. This mar
velous deposit, eight miles south of Cor
riza, covers a thousand acres, and con

buried and silicified into probably a mil

the trunks are 150 feet long and ten feet
in diameter, and others are broken into
every conceivable shape. Silicified wood
is obtained from many parts of the

The most remarkable feature of the

paralleled, is the natural bridge of aga

TRAITS OF THE MAN HUNTERS.
The Master of the Bloodhounds and Hit
Wonderful Convict Catchers.
"Wynton, allow me to introduce my
friend E. 0. Crauswell, who is thekeepei
of the dogs at Pratt Mines, Ala., and
who lias the only pack of genuine blood
hounds in the south."
The speaker was L. W. Johns, the min
ing engineer. Mr. Crauswell advanced
and extended his hand to your corre
spondent. He was heavily built, six feet
eight inches tall, offlorid complexion, and
wore a wide brim slouch hat. His feet
were encased in high-topped boots, in
which his pants were stuffed. His coat
was worn open in front, showing an im
maculate, shirt of snowy whiteness, on
the bosom of which, half hidden in the
ruffles, glistened a large diamond. Ho
had the appearance of a desperado, bur
he was genial and frank and an interest
ing talker, with a voice as soft as a
woman's, and with actions as timid as a
In 1882 he came to this place and be
gan to train bloodhounds. He brought
to the mines five famous dogs that had
been owned by his father, among which
were Fannie and Bucker, the two famous
man hunters of the south. The dogs are
kept in a kennel in the stockade enclos
' ure, and are nursed and fed by their
master as tenderly as children. Their
food consists of bread and raw beef.
The animals, when three months old,
are put through a course of training. A
trusty convict is started off on a run
with the dog at his heels, and runs a
short distance. A run of five minutes is
taken, and it is increased until the dog
can trail well at a start of thirty hours
on him. The dogs are not difficult to
train; the only difficidty is to keep them
from changing tracks, which is, in dog
parlance, to put a dog on the track of a
man and his sticking to it without chang
ing even if other tracks cross it. Fannie
will never give her tongue to any other
but the first track she took, even if 100
persons were to cross it. She will follow
the track to its end, and, if she does not
find the man, she will stop and return
When a convict escapes, a general
alarm is sctonded, ?pnd the dogs are
ready. They are taken to the place
where the escaped convict was last seen.
Crauswell mounts his fast horse, and the
dogs are let loose. Each dog circles for
a track and begins to hunt. Every one
goesrto work for.the trail, like as many
human detectives. When the trail is
fouifil the dog who discovers it makes a
signal and every other animal follows.
Fannie and Bucker always take the lead
from any other dog. Crauswell and
horse follow at full speed, and the longer
the chase the more interesting it grows.
The longest trail this man and Ids man
hunters ever had was in March, 1884,
when a negro escaped from from the
shaft prison. He had gone forty miles
and had been away about twenty-eight
hours. The dogs had trouble to catch
his scent after such a time. The negro
took an astonishing run and went about
ten miles through water. He was found
4it .Uster** tap of an old house on
the mountain near Warrior river. He
was lialf starved when captured.
Crauswell was asked to speak of 6ome
of the characteristics of his dogs. "I am
convinced," said he, "beyond the shadow
of a doubt, .that a bloodhound has more
than more instinct. I believe that they
think and reason like human beings. I
know that Fannie and Bucker do. The
dogs are docile in camps and very vicious
on a trad. Their sense follows the move
ments of men. There is no trouble to
get them to take the track when they
"After a convict is captured the dogs
return satisfied, and as happy as if they
had caught a rabbit. When they return
to the prison they become perfectly do
cile; when called out again they grow
very excited. The affection of the dogs
for me is more like that of a cldld to its
father than anything else I can describe.
I feed them myself and they have great
confidence in me. I have five fine pup
pies, 4 months old, that have fur on
tbem like sheep, which are now ready to
track a man to the depths of hell, if he
could travel there, and as for hiding a
trail, it is an impossibility. I am raising
them for sale, and I guarantee them to
find a trail thirty-six hours cold."?Nash
Simple Design for Heating by Gas.
A New York artist lias produced a sim
ple design for heating entirely by gas at
a mere nominal expense. It is a well
known fact that gas throws off no
smoke, soot, or dirt. The artist filled a
brazier with chunks of colored glass,
and placed several jets beneath. The
glass soon became heated sufficiently to
thoroughly warm a room 10x30 feet in
size. This design does away with the
necessity for necessity for chimneys,
since there is no smoke; the ventilation
may be had at the window. The heat
may be raised or lowered by simply reg
ulating the flow of gas.
The colored glass gives all the appear
ance of fire; there black pieces to repre
sent coal, red chunks for flames, yellow
ish white glass for white heat, blue glass
for blue flames, and hues for all the re
maining colors of spectrum. Invention
already is displacing the present fuels
for furnaces and cooking ranges, and
glass doing away with delay and such
disagreeable objects as ashes, kindling
wood, etc.?Scientific American.
