You say the day is fair;
But ray tired eyes, whose strength Is lost
.See but the hard bare
Unpltying brightness of the sky that
With no soft shade of care,
Man'? moan of duR despair.
You say the spring is here;
But why should I, who ne'er knew of joy
Find in the May good-cheer,
Or heed that still earth's miracle is rife,
A bourgeoned sphere,
In the morning of the year!
You say my soul is blind;
It truly so may be; I only know
That I for peace have pined.
But years go by, and regnant pain and
My restless spirit bind;
You yet say Heaven is kind?

English. City Society After Easter.
After Easter the full tide sets in. Every
body is up. The great houses are all open;
the park is full in the afternoon; the Row
Is crowed every morning with a thousand
horsewoman, the finest in the world, and
the English women look better in the sad
dle than anywhere else. Luncheons are
frequent; dinners innumerable. Forty
people often sit at one sumptuous board,
and the overflow sometimes reaches to
side-tables; clever people, if not of too high
rank, contend for these cosy corners,
when they can choose their partners.
Balls cow begin, to the sorrow of unfort
unate chaperones, and the delight of the
debutantes. The queen's drawing-rooms
are crowded. Politics are everywhere dis
cussed. Theatres and operas are aban
doned by people of fashion, for you can
not dine at 8 o'clock and go to the play the
same night; while the opera has, for years,
been given up to those who like music and
to strangers, and others who fancy it is
still the mode because it was so half a
But the whirling lasts only four or five
weeks when Whitsuntide comes; and then
another recess, and more than half the
world flits again to the country, which by
this time is enchanting. I used at first to
find these constant interruptions to the
round of society very provoking; just as
one got in the swim there was a gate or a
dike, and a halt; but after some years I
like the fashion, too.?Adam Badeau's
Variations of an Author's Ability.
The often-quoted dictum that a man's
first story is-his best is false. If a man has
talent his first story is novel, in the sense
of putting things in a new light, with a
langnage peculiar to himself. A man
can't write differently from what he thinks
any more than he can change his nose. I
know of a novehst whose first story was
superb, his second not so good, his third
very poor; we took them all; but his fourth
was as good as his first, and since then
every novel he has written is better and
stronger than the last one.
I think it would be wiser to believe that
an author never ascends or descends
beyond a certain line. His compass varia
tions are very slight. A man's brains are
like an iron furnace; that is a well-regu
lated and managed one. The crude ore
comes in in about the sumo quantity, aad
the output is so much iron and so much
slag. If a mental analysis were possible
... the proportions would be the same. Cer
tain men have, to follow out the idea, big
ger supplies of coal Their fires are more
rarely extinguished, therefore the iron
copper-gold turned out is larger. There
is a natural check to aU this kind of thing.
If the working is too continuous, after a
while the furnace tumbles down, or is
burned out, and it stops?sometimes for
ever.?New York Times.
Fashionable Colors and Their Names.
The touching descriptions of the
customs which are to grace the royal
ladies of Portugal at the approaching
festivities, give striking evidence of the
total incapacity of the English language
to adequately translate the language
which nature speaks through her infinite
shades of color. The simple names of the
primary colors hava long since passed out
of the milliner's vocabulary, but they at
least produce a definite conception in the
mind. Can the same be said of "hemp
color," "grocers' blue," "beaver color,"
"the tints of a wood pigeon's breast,"
"antique green," "lime blossom," and the
"shade of brown seen in the very middle
of a broken almond
The pet color of the Princess Amelie is
seemingly pink, and the varying shades of
this color which are to be seen iu her
trousseau are "plain pink," "pale pimc"
"palest pink," "rose pink," "shrimp pink,"
"soft pink," "flesh pink," aud "pink match
ing anemones and rosebuds." Doubtless
they make a very sweet bunch of pinks,
but it may be questioned whether any one
of them will be understood in the same
sense by any two individuals.?Pall Mall
My Lady's Artistic Back-Serutcb.
Happening one day in my lady's boudoir
I picked up from the cabinet what I took
for a pretty bit of bric-a-brac. It was
an ebony stem, about fourteen Inches
long, not thicker than one's finger and
quite daintly turned. At one end was at
tached a pretty little hand deftly wrought
in ivory. It could not be called a fist, for
I noticed that the fingers were only half
closed. The nails were weU developed,
and their ends or edges were set in a line.
This artistic trifle was called a "back
scratch." My lady's "back-scratch" was
for use in that very much out-of-the-way
place between the shoulder-blades. This
handy implement, though an article of
virtu, was in the line of luxury, although
the amenities would hardly approve the
Indulgence before eyes polite.?Popular
Farewell of Bear Admiral Leroy.
A recent visitor at Old Point Comfort
was Rear Admiral Leroy?"the Chester
field of the navy"?who went on the re
tired Ust a few years ago. That event oc
curred while he was at Nice, and he sig
nalized it with a fareweU banquet on his
old ship, the Trenton. The festivities over,
he ordered bis gig to be made ready to
take him ashore, but when he went to
take his pluce in it he found it manned
entirely by officers, headed by his succes

Editor Ttints and Democrat:
Since our last we have seen a good,
many farms in Orangeburg, Aiken and
Barnwell counties, and we have never
seen crops in a worse condition. If the
fains continue the old mule will be
sure to change masters next fall. (The
lien must be paid.) The health of our
community is very good. The fruit
crop is a failure, We have had another
Post Office established on this route by
the name of Sigma. Mr. W. M. Steven
son has been appointed Postmaster.
The Blackville, Johntown and Alston
Kail Road is creating quite a sensation
among our people and we are glad to
say our prospect for a rail road in the
near future is very encourageing. Our
schools are all dead, as usual in the
summer, but one, the Beaver Creek
School will be revived next Thursday
and we hope soon to see them all spring
ing into life again. It may seem
strange to some of your readers, but we
have one gentleman in our neighbor
hood who has not had any hair on his
head since the President married. Mr.
R. A. Youge will vouch for the truth
of this assertion. To show you the
great ability of some of our little fel
lows in composition I send you the fol
lowing on the mule. The mule is nofra
bird, for though he graces the limbs of
trees, yet no self respecting mule was
ever known to fly, or to hop about. As
" a singing bird, the mule is not a success,
for though his voice is strong, yet 'tis
not as sweet as the nightingale. 1
never heard of a mule being caged on
account of his voice. Mules are affec
tionate. They have a social way of
shaking hands with their hind foot
which is very pleasant ani highly
agreeable to them, and the Coroner.
Mules eat corn and a great deal of it;
but a mule was never known to eat
a young man that was in love, they
know too much for that. They leave
them for the broom stick. Mules de
note things. For instance, when you see
a mule growing onatree on the out
side it denotes that my "fellow is on
the inside." Again when you see the
same mule on the same tree often it
denotes that "my Fillow" is a candi
date for wedding cake and a ball head.
I love a mule, (at a distance) there is
something in his noble countenance
that means business. He is the great
friend of the preacher and undertaker
and causes him to smile as they pass
by. A mule knows a pretty girl every
time he sees her, he also knows her
fathers corn crib and rejoices there at.
Editor Times and Democrat:
In answer to a call from the little
congregation of Lutherans of this
place, we recently moved here fully de
termined to do all we could for them,
and the advancement of the Kingdom
of our Lord Jesus Christ. Up to this
time we have been very much in
couraged by not only Lutherans, but
all whom we have met.
The church, though without a pastor
for some time, shows a remarkable de
gree of spiritual life. We find here
some earnest and faithful workers, and
by a little encouragement, we think
they will do much for Christ.
The ladies, especially, are at work.
They have recently turned over to the
vestry of the > church quite enough
money to put a new roof on the church.
They are now working for other im
provements. May the Lord bless them
in their work. All of these things seem
to indicate that the ecclesiastical sun
of Orangeburg is rising higher and
higher every day.
We thank the good people for their
kindness to us since in their midst.

THE LIFEBOAT IN SERVICE.
A Sketch of tho Work Performed on tho
We wi? Imagine the watch set and aU
the other good Caister folk in bed. The
night wears away, until as day begins to
break a longer look than ordinary is taken
through the glass and a discussion of bear
ings, etc., ensues, with tho result that a
vessel is descried fast aground on the
Cross Sand with a heavy sea breaking
Out dash the men on to the staging.
One lays hold of the cord attached to the
clapper of the bell and the other rushes at
breakneck pace down the steps and up the
gap, shouting and hammering at the
doors as he goes. Then breaks out a Babel
of sounds. Men rush from every door and
side road, some of them with their trous
ers on, pulling on their shirts as they run,
stumbling in the dark, through the heavy
sand, but all making for one point, the
shed. There, hung up to the rails at the
roof, are their oilers, sou'westers, and boat
stockings, under the benches their big sea
boots. In a twinkling the "men have
donned their seagear, and are making a
bee Use across the sands for the lifeboat
The surf is smashing on the beach in tons,
and the wind is howling across the beach
and up the gap, bringing with it clouds of
sand v.nt il the air seems almost solid with
it. The red tanned lugsails are carried
down and placed in the boat ready for
hoisting, and the skids laid down forward
of the boat; the legs which kept the boat
on an even keel are taken away and re
placed by the broad backs of the sturdy
beachmen, amid shouts of "Hold her up;"
the hauRng-off warp which is anchored
out to seaward, is taken in over the puUey
in the bow, and the boat begms to move
on her porpoise-oiled skids.
As she goes over and clears the one at
her stern it is caught up by the side hand
les bj- two beachmen and taken to her
bows, and placed in line ready to pick her
up again as she comes steadily on
down the sand. Then the men tumble on
board and haul at the warp.
Then the remaining men keep her
moving over her skids until she dashes
her bows into a mass of water just
breaking and thundering on the beach,
and shipping tons of it and giving her
crew the first smother of many they will
have before they return, she moves
slowly on. Another breaker catches her
ere she has fairly gathered way and she
looks almost like coming back, but the
beachmen on shore have had the sett
ready. They ship it on to the stern and
shove her off into the smother. Up goes
the foresail with a run; up goes the mtz
zen, and the boat thrashes through the
broken water; overboard goes the haul
ing-off warp and she is clear of the beach
and fighting her way through the heavy
sea to the wreck; sea after sea breaks over
h her until they can see nothing of that
boat only feel it under their feet, hang
like grim death to the ridge-rope and take
a breath when the sea gives them a chance.
Over the Barbar they thrash, then over
the Scroby. They have to make a long
leg to fetch the wreck, and as they rise on
a wave they can sometimes make her out
dimly ?with seas spouting fountains o\rer
her. She is a smaU schooner, and her
crew?two men and two wretched, half
starved looking boys and an equally
wretched-looking mongrel cur?are hud-1
died together in the weather shrouds of
the foremast; the mizzonwaat has already
gone over the side. The lifeboat fights
her way to windward, then anchors, and j
lowering her lugs veers down to the
wreck, drops alongside and taKes in the
poor half-drowned wretches and their
poor dog, hauls back to the anchor, then J
up sail and away to the beach, where the
rest of the company is awaiting them.?

The Mysterious "Magic Minor."
Professors AjTtomand Perry, the Eng

served that on amalgamation, or coating
with quicksilver, brass expands, so that
if one side only is amalgamated a plate of
brass becomes curved. They imagine
that this may be the primary cause of the
phenomena of the Japanese "magic mir
ror," which has cast on the back a pattern
that is quite invisible on the polished face,
yet is mysteriously distinct in the patch of
light reflected by the mirror upon a screen.
Amalgamation would effect the thinner
parts made by the pattern more than the
rest of the plate, giving the mirror the im
perceptible unevenuess that becomes
plainly apparent in the reflected imago.?

Assisting Nature a Little Bit.
When the resources of Nature have
become retarded, no matter from what^
cause, it is then quite time to help the
Liver and Spleen, and other organs, to
perform their thorough duty?or we
shall soon be quite ill. In such cases
there is no more natural remedy than a
mild cathartic, one which will be sure
to perform its duty without injuring
the system in the least. Such, let us
say in al! candor, is Simmons' Hepatic
Compound. It will gently move the
bowels, without irritating them in the
least; when the medicine works, the
bowels are soothed and healed like a
charm?yet the medicine is more effec
tive than Calomel; one of the principal
ingredients possess all the good qualities
of that poisonous drug, without any of
its constituents. A dose of Simmons'
Hepatic Compound every night on
going to bed, will infallibly restore
health. Testimony of the highest con
sideration from every portion of the
country, and from all classes of people,
abunfiantly substantiate this fact. The
pnportance of this treatment cannot be
over-estimated, and it should be tried
by all means._

I have heard it intimated that the
"Farmers' Clubs" now being organized j
throughout the State are political and1
not agricultural. If this be true, what
is to become of the regular Democra
tic Clubs, the membership of which,
I outside of incorporated towns, is com
|posed almost entirely of farmers? Is
the older to be absorbed by the new
organization? If so, then there will be
only a change in name, but I hardly
think the new movement contemplates
s?ch a small result as this. If not,
there's going to be trouble, and I feel
constrained to sound a note of warning
now, in the ineipiency of the campaign,
before it is too late to apply a remedy.,
The danger of the formation of a "new
party" may not be imminent?indeed
we farmers are pledged against it by
the first resolution passed by our Con
vention in April last?but it is certain
ly true that a split in the Democratic
party is confidently looked forward to
by the Republicans and a few others,
as the result of this new movement.
Cure for Tiles.
Piles are frequently preceeded by a
sense of weight in the back, loins and
lower part of the abdomen, causing the
patient to suppose he has some affec
tion of the kidneys or neighboring or
gans. At times, symptoms of indiges
tion are present, llatulency, uneasiness
of the stomach, etc. A moisture like
perspiration, producing a very dis
agreeable itching, after getting warm,
is a common attendant. Blind, Bleed
ing and Itching Piles yield at once to
the application of Dr. Bosanko s Pile
Remedy, which acts directly upon the
parts affected, absorbing the Tumors,
allaying the intense itching, and effect
ing a permanent cure. Price 50 cents.
