TH x ~AN G TIMES.1I
WEDNESDAY, NOV, 24, I886.
B. S. D!NKINS, Editor.
The News anid Ciirier of the 23rd
contains a succinct biography of the
members of the present General As
sembly. Considerable prominence is
given to the Hon. Jos. F. Rhame, our
Ex-President Chester A. Arthur
died at his home in New York on the
morning of the 18th inst. He was
elected Vice-President in 1S80, on the
Republican ticket with Garfield, and
by the assassination of the latter in
1881, by Guiteau, became President.
When he assumed the duties of Pres
ident the greatest fears were enter
tained at the South that he would
adopt the partisan spirit towards her
which distinguished his predecessor,
R. B. Hayes; but in a short time his
.administration allayed all fears. His
course towards the section was a most
acceptable indifference. He did us
no harm-requiescat in pace.
Our outside contains a full account
of his illness and death, with a brief
history of his life.
PRAISE YE THE LORD!
The President by his proclamation
calls upon the people to observe to
morrow (Thursday) as a day of Na
tional thanksgiving and prayer. And
the Governor of this State has added
an earnest appeal in the nature of a
proclamation that Southearolinians
<do praise and worship the Almighty
to-morrow for his manifold blessings
extended during the year.
it is the paramount duty of every
-man, woman and child, to obey in
spirit these manifestoes of our chief
Executives. As a nation, a people,,
and as individuals, we have a great
deal to-be thankful for; and especially
is this the case with the inhabitants
of our own State. We have felt, and
know, the curse of living under a
wicked Government. The bosom of
every true patriot in South Carolina
.should swell with grateful praises to
the Ruler of the Universe that the
evil and designing are overthrowhn
and wise rulers placed in their stead.
And as idils, in acknowledging
the divinity of God, every man's con
science is a whispering monitor, that
all the privileges and worldly goods
he claims as his own and enjoys, are
showered upon him by the hand of the
.Divine. Secure in the protection of
.a wise and prospering Government,
.and enjoying richly the varied pleas
uires of life, all will unite in one loud
-acclaim, that "God is good."
Theni it is expected, and most ear
-nestly desired, that our citizens will
'lay aside all business to-morrow and
.celebrate the day in attending relig
ions services, and with grateful hearts
proclaiming in loud hosanna's that
-"God is good;" at the same time in
,oking a continuation of His bounti
ful mercies throughout another year.
OUR LAW MAKERS.
The Legislature now in session is
composed more largely of new miem
bers (we are speaking of the lower
branch of the General Assembly) than
any House since the Reconstruction
period. A canvass of the members
develops the fact that only about
twernty-four of those who composed
the House of 1884-5 have been re
elected; and seven or eight of that
number have been returned from
Charleston. 'Pardon our digression,
but right here is revealed the true
.cause of the immense 'power weilded
by Charlston in the General Assem
ibly. They have been taught by the
.experience of time the infinite supe
riority of a well trained Legislator to~
a rude unsophisticated gentleman of
<>ne term. Hence when a Charleston
:member develops into a skilled deba
tor and parliamentarian he is kept
~there; returned time after time till
:age unfits him for further service or
then he is elevated to a higher sphere.
There are men from Charleston who
have grown old and gray since their
first election, and these sages of So
Ion will be kept there, and their pow
er continue to be felt on every imnpor
tant occasion. It would be well for
some of the counties to profit by the
wisdom displayed by Charleston in
this respect, and maybe we would
bear less gramnbling about Charleston
members working for Charleston's in
The new House is remarkable again
on account of the variety of principles
and measures upon which its mem
bers are elected, and sent to Colum
bia as the exuonents of and advo
The State during the past year has
been stirred throughout its circum
ference with new issues, many of
of them, apparently, extravagant in
their complexion. These took root
and grew in the last election, and
have been transplanted to be fruited
in Columbia during the next four
weeks. What kind of fruit it vwill be
is yet to be seen.
The present House may, with all
due respect, be dubbed youthful, forI
the greater part of its members areI
fresh from the people, and bearing,
for the first time, Legislative honor~s.
And it may be styled radical in its
caiie, E r a good portion have gone
to Columbia filed with new ideas of
reform which, if put into effect, will
completely revolutionize the present1
state of affairs.
Indeed it is a remarkable House in
meany respects. What it will accom
plish is awaited for anxiously. And
the public will watch its every step
with undiminished interest till it ad-'
journs sine die.
The Pantagraph, published at Big Springs,
Howard County, Texas, contains the grati

A ScIENTIFIC THEORY OF rrS CAVSE.
Everv one feels and knows his individu
alitY. We would do well never to speak or
write, until we shall have thoroughly con
sidered and cxamined the strength of the
ground on which we propose to stand and
collect our thoughts, for the purpose of
erecting an argument.
While the premises may stand firm, it is
impossible to shape the conclusion."
No one on this earth can tell how long
our present artificial earthquake will last, as
none can know how much work the two
great forces of nature may have to do. We
believe no impossibility on even the best of
evidence. Our answer always is, that it is a
delusion. Though we may think none the
less of the witness, yet we may regard him
as having been deceived by appearances.
One may have heard or seen somethIng,
which may have led him to give publicity I
to what we are obliged to put down as im
possible. We are not required by polite
ness to treat impossibilities seriously, mere
ly that we may seem to agree with those
who may be too credulous.
When a portion of any one of the strata of
this earth is removed to the top stratum,
there is an immediate effort on the part of
nature's laws to heal the wounds thus made,
by putting just as much positive and nega
tive power there, as the removed portion of
stratum contained. Why reverse nature so
suddenly and to the extent of our ability to
do so? What other result can we reasona
bly look for, than confusion accompanied
with artificial convulsions, when we call to
mind the great extent of this field of work?
This earth can never be destroyed bynatur
al causes, as her forces can only preserve
her equilibrium. If any one were to pub
lish to the world that our earth would be
destroyed by any process of nature, we
would put it down by the side of material
ism, evolution, and all such scientific im
possibilities. The great God alone can des
troy his own works. We take it, that the
centre of the earth at the equator is a nega
tive, as the temperature of water shows such
a condition there. We know that snow,
sleet, hail, and rain, (independent of better
evidence at our command) prove that there
is a powerful negative above us.
The two poles of the earth, its centre, and
the negative force in the temperate zones,
are the negative focuses of this earth. The
positive focuses of the earth are its surface
at the equator and what positive there may
be in the temperate zones. Each force at
tracts vhat is unlike to it, and repels that
which is similar. The air and earth are
thus kept purified by forces attracting and
repelling each other. The pine forests and
diver's large and small water outlets which
have been destroyed, assisted somewhat in
preserving the negative force on this side
of the equator line. When the sun crosses
this equator line, (sometimes when on the
other side of said line) he may from unnat
ural causes, bring about cyclones, tidal
waves, and earthquakes, even in countries
not at all subject to such convulsions.
When nature calls upon the sun for extra
work, she also makes the same demand up
on the great negative whose residence is
space. We believe that the positive focuses
of this earth rule the flood tide, and that
its negative focuses govern the ebb tide.
But the great tidal focuses, are the centre
and surface of the earth at the equator. Ar
tificial earthquakes (so also natural ones)
may have their origin under the water, or
in the air. They may even originate in
places where the disturbance of matter
would attract a strong negative, that an un
due amount of positive may be neutralized.
There can be no positive current (which
is really the character of our earthquake)
beyond the central of the great negative
force in nature. It occurs to us that flood
tide is the result of a positive current, which
is neutralized and driven back by a nega
tive current that gives us ebb tide. When
we have a tidal wave, nature makes a de
mand upon the sun that we may have the
wave, and then upon the great negative that
it may be neutralized. The tides are too
uncertain and fickle in their character to be
turned over to the care and keeping of the
moon, whose phases are so regular and per
feet. We cannot think that it comports wirth
reason and correct thought, to admit that
there is a positive surface and a positive
centre at the equator. If men would be
more economical in their demands upon
the earth, nature would not call so frequent
ly upon her two great forces to preserve her
equipoise. When we contemplate the vast
extent of vitreous matter upon our top
stratumr, that also which is several strata be
low us. the great ocean and our broad riv
ers, we can but see the wisdom of the great,
good and merciful God, in providing against
the mistakes of thoughtless men. From our
standpoint of thought, we would say that
Charleston will stand,

Frank Leslie's Poplar Monthly for De
In these days, when outdoor sports are so
generally cultivated, many will read the ar
ticle, "Why we Canoe," by W. P. Stephens,
in the December number of F-.?xx L2sLIE's
PomniR.? MornnHY, and some at least will be
tempted to L. v an amusement so exhilarat
ing and attractive. "Persian and Turkish
Tobacco" have their votaries too, who will
indorse Mr. Oscanyan's praises. The sketch
of the Centenarian Chemist Chevreul, on
whom our Harvard has just conferred the
degree of Doctor of Laws, will be read with
interest. The article on the American Spar
row hawk is full of interest just now, as
showing how easily it could be tamed and
used instead of a scarecrow to keep off grain
devouring birds. A venturesome young Ia-,
dy, Miss Taylor, tells of what she beheld at~
one of the "Great Thirsty Dances' among
the Indians, till its horrors overpowered
her. W. E. McConn goes into the byways
of life and tells of "Eccentric Recluses" in
a charming way. "The treatment of Crim
inas," with a careful account of the Elmira
Reformatory, is an article to be read and
studied carefully. "A Winter in Jamaica"
is a sketch of West India travel, very pret
tily told, and like the other articles in the
number, well and attractively illustrated.
Arthur Dudley Vinton tells the story of
"North America Earthquakes." "The Fish
er-girl of Grand Menan," "Two Inspira
tions,' "Shadow or Substance?" and other
articles in this magazine, justify its title of
the "Popular Monthly."

The reduction of internal revenue
and the taking off of revenue stamps
from Proprietary Medicines, no doubt
has largely benefitted the consumers
as well as relieving the burden of
home manufacturers. Especially is
this the case with Green's August
Flower and Boschee's German Syrup,
as the reductio'n of thirty-six cents
per dozen, has been added to increase
the size of the bottles containing these
remedies, thereby giving one-fifth
more medicine in the 75 cent size.
T he August Flower for Dyspepsia and
Liver Complaint, and the German
Syrup for Cough and Lung troubles,
have, perhaps, the largest sale of any
medicines in the world. The advan
tage of increased size of tne bot
tes will be greatly appreciated by
the sick and afflicted, in every town
and village in civilized countries.
