B. S. DINKtNS, Editor.
With this issne. the Tixxs has started on
rs second year. The success of the paper
t., the present time has been gratifying in
aeed, owing to the kindly assistance and
Pnerous patronage of a best of friends, to
whom we return our grateful acknowledg
Heretofore we have intentionally refrain
ed from alluding, in any manner, to the re
missness of those of our readers whose sub
Scriptions are unpaid, and Aven now from
a tender regard for their gs, we hope,
that they will consider our new year and
t* harvest season a sufficient excuse. Our
terms, as are well known, require the money
in advance of the paper; yet. ther3 are many
,hW bave been thus far indulged, and our
kuprise will be great if they do not make
basteo settle their arrears, and pay in ad
vanea for the coming year.
A strong petition has been forward
ed to the General Assembly urging an
increase of the salery'of the Trial Jus
tie at Manning. The reasons for this
reqat,asstatedin the petition, are
mferitoius, and, we are sure will meet
the aproval of our Representatives
i both Houses. It is safe to assert
that, four-fifths of the work of these
Courta is done by that officer. The
duties of the incumbent are, therefore,
so great, that he is shut off from enter
ing, with any expectation of success,
every other.field of labor. Yet, as it
now stands, compared with the work
eured, the salary is a mere pittance.
1is of paramount importance that
the Trial Justice at Manning be capa
ble and efficient, and to secure this
end, the office should at least afford a

These are home industries that de

With them we must ascend or de

We hope at anearly day to see our

POVE YU .
There is a Spanish proverb which
;ays, "too much prosperity makes
most men fools,"-auother, "have
money and you will have kindred
enough"-and another, "poverty is no I
isgrace, it is better living on a little,
than outliving a great deal." In these
brief sayings much wisdom may be
iscovered. There is no circumstance
in life considered so humiliating as
penury and yet it is no degradation
to be poor; a poor man is not less
worthy than a rich, neither should he
be less respected, and yet he is so.
Why ? The power of the world is
either embodied in wealth or wisdom,
and without some moderate portion
of wealth the powers of wisdom are
seldom made apparent. Poverty has
been the companion of the wise, from
time immemorial and although the
most intellectual among nankind, are
those best calculated to devise meax;s
for accumulating riches, they are uni
versally the most lethargic in the em
ployment of the means. Goldsmith
in his Vicar of Wakefield, has most
admirably and naturally described the
effects of a generous spirit, and care
less habits regarding money matters,
and yet who took less forethought for
the morrow, than Oliver Goldsmith.
One of the seven sages of Greece ob
served that no condition in life is so
felicitous as a state of mediocrity, and
another philosopher remarks "that a
state of affluence is equally productive
of disquiet with that of indigence."
But all the authority we might quote
wCud contribute but trivially in mak
ing the pour believe their condition
equally felicitous with that of the rich.
The daily laborer at mechanical pur
suits, unless possessed of a peculiarly
benignant and contented disposition
performs the orders of his employer
with unwillingness and envy.
Poverty is rendered intolerable for
many reasons, the poor are deprived
of a thousand advantages of liberty
which the rich enjoy; education which
is perhaps the greatest blessing that
can be bestowed, is denied them, if
their minds are naturally capable, their
scintillations are checked for want of
this proper channtl to bring them in
to a favorable requisition. Among
some of the ancients a system of gov
ernment was adopted which rendered
individuals eminent only for virtue,
but every member of the community
had an equal chance with his fellow.
all -the seminaries were public, and all
the honors conferred according to the
merits of the competitors at public ex
hibitions. Orators and poets compos
ed, and recited their productions in
public-artists, painters and sculptors,
exhibited their workmanship before
a committee of unbiased and just
judges. He that excelled in any par
ticular branch was awarded honors
accrding to his deserts and imine
diately received the station in public
estimation, which his abilities assign
ed him. In modern times it is not so,
merit is superceded, either by wealth
or intrigue, the man who is most ac
quainted with fraud and gifted largely 1
with impudence, is the one most apt
to succeed, the consequence is, self-in
terest actuates the larger 'portion of
mankind; wealth is power and all seek
t becomie powerful through its intlu
ence. Principle in most cases is talk
ed of only as a well to conceal fraudu
aat motives. Heedless of the cries of
their less fortunate brothers, they stop
not to help; him up one round of the
ladder, but rather give him a shove
down, and struggle on to see who shall
be uppermost, the means used are not
always the miost hbnorable, but "no
matter," cries the contestant, "the end
aspired to is obtained."

Ithas Sared my Life.
I have been suffering with scrofula
for the past four years. For two years
I tried various remedies pres.:ribed by
a number of the best physicians.
They treated me for what they called
a fatty tumor on the neck. This prov
ed a delusion, as the rising, which
had assumed a fearful shape, broke
and commenced to discharge freeley.
In 883, being convinced that the af
fliction with which I suffered was of
a scrofulous nature, I was induced to
try Swift's Specific. I was growing
desperate, atid wanted a speedy cure,
and as the S. S. S. did not act as
promptly as I thought it should, I was
easily persuaded to quit it and try an
other preparation. That did me no
good, and I changed to another con
taining potash and mercury, and that
came near wrecking me. My life wa
despaired of. Almost disheartened os
ever seeing a well day again, I was in
duced to go back to Swift's Specific
It was my only hope. In December,
1884, commenced a regular course.
It was sometime before my system
vielded to its influence, but when it
did I began to improve at once. I
had become so weak I could scarcely
walk, but unde? the influence of S. S.
S. my general health has greatly im
proved, and I feel as well as I ever
eain mylf to-day. The scars alone
reman t tel o myformer sufferings,
every other evidence of the disease
havig disappeared, and I can honest
ly say that S. S. S. has saved my life.
