Trustees' Meeting.?Col. Coward,
our State Superintendent of Education,
as heretofore announced, will meet and
address the Schi+ol Trustees of our
County, at Mellichamp's SehooIiiou.se
on Friday, September 3d. Let all the
Trustees 'come out and give him a
cheering reception. ?
Lectures.?Prof. E. S. Joynes will
deliver two lectures next week at Mel
lichamp's Se'ioolhonse. The first will
take place on next Tuesday evening:,
subject. "The Study of Language,"
and the second will be on Wednesday
evening:, subject, "Characteristics of
the English Language." Dr. Joynes*
well known reputation as an eloquent
and classic lecturer will, undoubtedly,
ensure a full house. The lectures are
free, ant! a cordial invitation is extend
ed to the public.
Turn Out and Vote.?We would
impress upon the minds of all Demo
crats the importance of turning out
and voting at the Primary election. It
is then that each and every one has the
privilege of- casting his vote for the
men of his choice. Those who do not
vote at the primary election, have no
moral right to complain, if the ticket
nominated does not suit. The rule is,
however, that those who .do not vote,
arc the one's who do the mo^t grum
teachers, that the Institute commences
at 11 o'clock A. M. on next Monday, at |
Mellich:)nip's Schoolhouse. Make your
arrangements, at once, to come and j
spend the week in improvement and
equipment for your profession. You
will ever regret it if you miss this op
portunity t hat comes to your very dyoors.
The exercises will be open to the
public, and we hope our citizens will
show their interest by being preslnt as
much as possible, and especially at the
first day's proceedings.
Stick to the Farm.?Jefferson de
clared that cities were sores on the
body politic. If this was true SO years
ugoj it is .'iiiic.'i more so now, when the
size and iniquities of the city have so
enormously increased. Defective as
farm life .is according to the ideal
standing, it. furnishes the conditions
for more successful manhood than the
* crowded city. "By their fruits ye shall
know them." Trie ranks of eminent
business and professional men are
mainly recruited from rural homes,
says the American Cultivator.
Obi> Comuades.?On last Thursday
morning Messrs. Jno. P. DeVeanx, of
Charleston, and Jno. II. Dukes, of our
town, met for the first time in twenty
two years. About that time they were
fast friends, both gallant Confederate
SQldiers in the same regiment and were
both wounded on the same day in a
charge on Kilpatrick's camp. This
separated thcui and they did nut meet
again until bust Thursday, when Mr.
DeVeaux visited our town as a dele
gate to the.Congressional Convention.
It Is needless to say that the meeting
was cordial and pleasant.
Sotice to All.?Wc want all con
cerned to understand that we will not
undertake to correct articles of a con
troversal nature. Men who want to
conduct controversies through our col
umns must have intelligence enough
to write correctly or get some one to
do it for them before they send their
articles to this office, as they will ap
pear just as they come. It is impossi
ble for 'us to rewrite articles of this
kind, and we want this fact distinctly
understood. What is said above does
not apply to news items. We are al
ways glad to get these, and don't mind
rewriting them, because they are of
Wanted in Georgia.?Sometime
ago Tiiul Justice Browning arrested a
suspicious looking white man who was
prowling around the country with a
gun. He was committed to jail under
the vagrant act. He gave his name as
John Jones, and claimed to be from
Alabama, where he said he had friends
living. For a long time he was stolid
and uncommunicative, and but little
could be learned of his antecedents.
Finally a fellow prisoner got into his
eood graces, to whom he confided that
he lived iff. Clarke County, Georgia.
The Clerk of that county was written
to concerning him, and ah answer came
back that his name was not Jones but
Kelly, anil saying he was wanted there
for forgery and burglary. He will be
held unt if an officer comes for him.
Five Million Pounds.?This is the
name of a nsw illustrated story that
we will begin to publish in a few weeks.
It is a powerful serial, and is un
doubtedly the best that we have yet

lion pounds: Daisy, his niece, sweet
and fair, good and brave: Cvril Fenton,
her lover, who saves her from the gal
lows, and Dr. Branksoine. a polished
villain. The tale involves more than
one mystery and a great trage.!;.-, inci
dents to hold the story, ever fresh and

serial has been printed in years that is
likely to produce a greater sensation
than this. Kver\ !><??;> should real it.
Co l?K Ukstoueiv?Certain articles
of jewelry, etc.. captured by the United
States ariflj during the civil war and
deposited in the treasury department,
are to be delivered to their rightful
owners, in accordance with the pro
visions of the act of congress, and rules
and regulations have been prepared to
govern th<> restoration. The articles
are contained in two boxes, and consist
of silverware, jewelry, portraits,

?? A I'leartiint Occasion.
St. Matthews, S. C Aug. 18,1886.
There is quite a strong tendency,
among individuals and some commu
tities, in this utilitarian age, to neglect
to a great extent, if not altogether, the
cultivation and pursuit of social inter
ests and pleasures. In the conception
and execution of the plans of life, there
is frexuently little or no provision
made for the exercise and development
of social virtues. Xow the highest de
velopment of humanity is to be found
not merely in the cultivation of the prac
tical and physical side of nature, but
also in the cultivation of the mental,
moral, and social faculties as well.
This view of the case is properly appre
ciated by the community of Lime
stone. Surrounded by abundant evi
dence of thrift, progress and prosperi
ty, they also possess those social refine
ments which lend to existence many of
its chief attractions."

In your issue of August 19th, 1880,
under the heading "Dots by the Way,"
occur the following passages with ref
erence to the smal boy, colored:
"Another choice party gotten up
about the depot to pitcli ball." "The
goahead 'small boy' gets on the night
shifting trains at the depot and has a
nice time riding up and down. He has
the faculty of screaming louder than
the engine Whistle. lie (usually a doz
en) shins up to the car roof "puts on
brakes, whistles all the steam calls,
dances on the roof as the cars move
and yells a farewell as the train goes
off." " "Query:?If one of those urchins
who clamber unmolested (we saw that
they were seen and not interfered with)
on top of the shifting trains gets killed
i or hurt, who is responsible?"
As these, paragraphs are calculated to
reflect on the officers of the South Car
olina Railway Company, 1 have felt it
due to them" to say ^hat the above
statements are untrue, and could only
have been written by some one who
wits not only unfriendly to the Rail
way Company and its ollicers, but who
seeks in a covert way to vent his ill
will and spleen. Let the author of
"Dots by the Way" come out like a man
and prefer his charges, if he has any,
against the company or any of its offi
cers, and not act the part of the assas
sin by stabbing his enemy in the dark,
and then quietly slinking away to
await another opportunity to repeat
: the cowardly act. Respectfully,
Jehu G. Postell.
The Cotton Caterpillar.?The
following interesting facts about the*
pests is taken from the JJarnwell
People of last week : "Dr. E. II. Dow
ling, good authority on all agricultural
subjects, .talked interestingly about
cotton caterpillars the other day. lie
fore the war, he said, they did no harm
in this section of the South. In the
last twenty-one years they have appear
ed ten times, shortening live crops
more or less. Last year they were first
discovered in his fields on the 12th of
July and they cost him twenty bales.
The Doctor says they have favorite
places for putting in their first appear
ance, generally being discovered with
1 in ten feet of the spots where they ap
; peared at the previous visitation. This
new fact, heretofore unnoticed, opens
wide room for conjecture and investiga
tion. May it not preserve itself during
the winter in its cradle home, in the
pith of the cotton stalk, or some other
unknown manner.until seasons suitable
for its development bring it to life
again? If that could be proven, the
burning of the stalks, or other winter
quarters, would put an end to it and
its ravages. The neighborhood of
Buford's Bridge is, according to Dr.
Dowling, the favorite pasture ground
for these pests. That fact dissipates
the theory that its moths are brought
from the sea coast in railway cars and
by Southerly winds."
The Wae is the Black District.
The News and Courier of last Saturday
contained the following in reference to
the war now being waged in the Black
District for and against Smalls : The
meeting at St. Andrew's yesterday was
quite small, but there were a number
of speeches made, and they were both
long and bitter. The speakers were
A. S. Bascomb, W. J. JJowcn, J. M.
Freeman, W. II. Thompson. Robert
Smalls, R. C. Browne, Hobt. Simmons,
A. P. Ford and W. II. Ahrens. Smalls
was denounced by one of the speakers
as a "convicted bribe-taker." Resolu
tions were offered endorsing a Rerke
lev man for Congress, but Nat Clark,
who acted as precinct chairman, refus
ed to put them to a vote. When the
resolutions endorsing Smalls wen; of
fered they were clearly voted down by
a decided majority,' but Clark, the
chairman, who was a Smalls man, de
clared the resolutions adopted. The
ground was the scene of much confu
sion and disorder. Thompson. Rowen
and Rrowne attacked Smalls bitterly
ami seemed to have had things their
own way. At the meeting on John's
Island, Wednesday, not over 1U? voters
were present, and they were divided
between IJowen and Smalls.
Yes. Why Not ??Dr. W. L. Jones,
the able and veteran editor of the
Southern Cultivator in his "Thoughts
for the Month," for August, concludes
as follows : "Let neighborhood clubs
now come together anil have barbe
cues. Give the social side of our na
tures an opportunity of expanding.
The exacting demands of his crop have
heretofore kept the fanner too busy
and too closely at home for him to en
joy much the society of his friends.
This is the greatest defect in farm life;
let us counteract its dwarfing, narrow
ing tendency whenever we can. Meet
together as often as possible, compare
noses, swap experiences, discuss the
public welfare of the county and State.
Do not be frightened by the bugaboo
cry of politics; farmers have as much
right to politics as anybody else. Why
should they not fix up slates as well as
the city people or anybody else ? By
all means take politics out of the hands
of the self-seekers."

| ^ GOODLAXli, August l?tll, 18Sr>.
Editor Times <nul Democrat :
In your issue of the 12th inst. I see a
communication signed by "A Demo
crat," which I think ought to receive
some attention. Hear him. lie says:
''An attack has been made by some of
the citizens of this County"upon the
educational system of this .State. Now,
so far as I can recollect, there has been
no direct attack made only by myself,
and that only upon the college system.
There has been some calls for candi
dates to express themselves on these
questions, but no direct attack. Again
he says: "Education is either a good
or a bad thing." What, bosh! 1 have
never heard a man of average intelli
gence say. or intimate, that education
wajs a bad thing; on the contrary it is
always considered good. Yes, very
good, and something to be sought after.
What he says about good citizens, and
educated citizens, is all very well, if he
will just add that the man might be a
better or a worse citizen, with higher,
or even lower education.
That the government "owes to its
citizens the adoption of means lor their
improvement" I do not deny, but the
question arises, what are the best
means to reach the end desired? Cer
tainly not taxing the poorer to educate
the richer class. But he says this is to
educate the poor, and brings up a pic
ture of the poor man being left out for
want of higher education. Xow every
one knows that a free college education
never was, nor never will be, placed in
reach of all the poor. Nor is it the
wish of "A Democrat," or any one else,
that it should be. A man' that can
[spare his son from four to six years,
j pay his board and keep him well clothed
I is far above the average taxpayer in
point of wealth. And if you can prove
that there is a taxpayer, (however
small,) in this State, who is not able to
do all this, then I will prove that the
State is taxing the poorer to educate
the risher. It seems to me that this
shauId settle the question in the minds
of every unbiased Democrat.
Hut to return to "A Democrat." lie
says "the present mass of ignorance
threatens our free institutions," &t\,
and then winds up by trying to soft
soap the eyes of this ignorant mass by
saying "if the poor man is compelled
to" stand still in this matter the State
will fall into tho hands of the few edu
"Consistency thou art a jewel." Who
is this mast of ignorance if not the
poor and unlearned ? And if they have
power to upset these free institutions
now, (which Cod grant they may.) will
they not be able to hold some place in
the" State Covern merit? I think so.
That there are good, honest men on the
other side of the question I have no
doubt, but they are men far removed
from want; they do not know whereof
they speak. If they could come in
daily contact with the people, and enter
into their joys and sorrows, see and
realize the trouble and privation often
experienced by the poor, to raise the
small (to them" large) amount of taxes,
I think if they are possessed of any
kindly feelings" for the poor they would
turn "every power in them to lighten
the tax instead of making it heavier.
As to the free common schools I have
nothing to say, as they are very near
in reach of all, but they might be
better. 1 am glad that "A Democrat"
has showed his colors. Politicians
seem to be on the fence in regard to the
proposed agricultural college, nearly
all saying if the farmers want it I am
in favor of it. Poor politicians foot
balls! for a few courthouse farmers
that do not take hold of the plow once
a year attempting to represent the man
toiling for his daily bread. There is a
I class of men (I will call them kid
gloved farmers) who attempt to repre
sent the whole of the farmers of the
State. They plant largely, make lots
of cotton at almost any cost, call their
meetings, organize farmers' clubs, pass
resolutions to suit themselves, send
them to the editor, and they are sent
out to be read, as the voice of the farmers
of County or State, as the case may be.
Xow these men have nothing else to
do, and they have sons souring on their
hands, who are too proud to work, and
they must be at something to keep
them out of mischief, and if these kid
gloved fanners can fool us horny
handed "mass of ignorance" to keep
up these free colleges for them, of
course they will be benelitted to the
amount of the tuition fee. I say again,
down with them all. T, J. Bolix.

A Silliest Ion.
Editor Times and Democrat:
On the same day of the political
meeting at Evan's .Mill. Col. Coward,
our State Superintendent of Education,
has appointed to meet the School Trus
tees of the County in Orangeburg; and
the Teachers' Institute will also In- in
session. A number of the School Trus
tees being also concerned in the politi
cal meeting, it is feared that it will
interfere considerably with the attend
ance at the Trustees'meeting, especially
from the lower part of the County.
This will be bad as it will look like
indifference to Col. Coward's visit. The
Trustees' Meeting ought to be full, to
rellect credit upon Orangeburg County.
In view of this I propose that the
Even's Mill meeting be changed from
Friday. September 3d, to Saturday,
September 4th, which can be easily
done, as there is time to advertise, and
the appointment of the Executive
Committee is not peremptory, but only
advisory. School Trustee.
