Isaac Salmond, a colored boy. was recent
ly arrested near Camden for attempting to
steal some money from a white lady. When
he was about to be taken to jail he proposed
that his captors whip him and let him go.
His proposition was accepted, and one hun
dred and one lashes were laid on his back
in good style. When the whipping was
done he touched his hat to his captors and
left for parts unknown.

The Hon. C. G. Memminger of Charles
ton died in that city last Wednesday night.
Mr. Memminger was for years a leading
citizen of South Carolina. He took a lead
ing position at the bar, and besides held
several places of public trust. He repre
sented Charleston in the House for several
terms, and took a leading position. He
was Secretary of the Treasury of the Con
federate Government as first organized, and
held that post for two years, when -he re
signed. Mr. Memminger was conspicuous
in his advocacy of free common schools.
His death removes one of the old land
marks, and closes a most honorable career.
Prof. Seelye says in the Forum for March
that "the President doesnot rule: neither
does the Congress nor the Supreme Court.
The people are the only rulers." That is
the theory. It used to be that the "people"
bossed the machine, but it is not so now.
The Congress governs. The Speaker of
the House is the most influential man in
the Union. He appoints the Chairman of
te Committees ; the Committees rule Con
gesand the Congress rules the country.
Ifthe Congress was not Big Boss it would
not dare to waste the people's money as it
does. If the people were the rulers they
would soon clear out the wasters and spoil
The Comptroller General has issued the

"To the county treasurers and sheriffs:
Wherever the treasurer has issued and
handed to the sheriff of his county an exe
cution or *arrant, as required by the recent
forfeited laud act, and the sheriff, on pre
senting said execution, finds that the tax
payer holds a receipt, properly issued and
signed by the county treasurer, the said
sheriff will stay execution and report the
same to the treasurer, who must examine
into the genuiness of the said receipt ; and
if the receipt proves to be genuine, the

execution before levy."
- A Specific Pension Law.
ENews and Courier-.]
We do niot see that the terms of the see
end section of the. pension law of South
Carolina admit of a doubtful interpretation,
though the clerk of the Court of Richland
county was right, of course, in seeking ad
'cice when a doubt was presented to his
own mind. The language of the Act is
explicit. Whatever the nature of the disa
kility, it must be the result of a wound,
must be "permanent," and must be such as
to incapacitato the applicant for a pension
"from earnin~g a livelihood" in any way.
What <onstitu es a 4'.ivelihood'ishkewise
snecifically stated.- However badly disa
bi'i he m'ay be, if the applicant receives
$-250 from any source, or is capable of earn
ing so much, he is not entitled to the bene
tite of a pension. The fund provided by
t~be State is intended clearly to help those
who cannot support themselves, and who
would be objects of public charity without
State aid. This simple, plain rule should
solve every doubt that can arise as to the
construction of the law in any case.
The Act as it stands makes no distinction
between "manual' labor and -"mental" la
bor, and recognizes none. It regards only
the manifest incapacity of the individual
applicant to make a living for himself by
any means. To take an extreme case for
the purpose of illustration, it may be said
that, if a soldier of the specified class had
lost his eyesight and all his limbs as the
result of wounds received in the wvar, and
yet; were capable of "earning a livelihood'
by teaching or preaching, for example. he
would not be entitled to a pension under
the South Carolina law.
The lawv itself may be a very narro-w one,
end greatly restricted in its provisions ;but
it was inte'nded to apply to a very smnal
class, and, whatever its character, it is the
only rule for- the conduct of the law officers
of tihe State. it goes, moreover, as fasr as
the State can afford to go in this busines.

A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.
Science and philosophy have ex
hausted themselves in profound trea
tises to determine the just relation
between mind and matter, between
body and soul, how to preserve the
equilibrium between the two, and
how to restore it when it is lost by
sickness of the body. This great
problem has successfully been solved
by a gentleman in North Carolina, by
experience on himself, proving that
an ounce of practical experience is
worth several pounds of scientific or
philosophical theorizing. Mr. Ham
lin is one of the best known insurance
men in Winston, N. C.
Gentlemen-Ever since I was sev
en years of age I have had what the
doctors call hip disease, and which I
call white swelling. My hip was
drawn out of place. There was a
swelling at the knee joint, where there
is a profuse running, which has been
there for years. Of course this has
greatly depleted my system, together
with surgical operation on the leg
bone. I tried every known blood pu
rifyer to build up my system, but
none did me good until I took S. S. S.
I use it every spring. It always
builds me up, giving me appetite and
digestion, and enables me to stand
the long, trying, enervating, hot sum
mer days. To me there is no such
medicine for purifying the blood and
building up the wasted system as S.
S. S. On using it I soon became
strong of body and easy of mind. My
color changes from a pale, worn look,
to a healthy, robust complexion.
Yours, very truly,

Value of Eggs for Food.
Many of our best farmers have arrived at
the conclusion that poultry raising is the
most profitable thing they can engage in.
Of the egg alone the London Standard, after
stating of what it is composed, mentions the
various purposes for which it is used.
Every element, the writer says, that is
necessary to the support of man is contain
ed within the limits of an egg shell, in the
best proportions and in the most palatable
form. Plain boiled, they are wholesome.
The masters of French cookery, however,
affirm that it is easy to dress them in more
than 500 different ways, each method not
only economical, but salutary in the high
est degree. No honest appetite ever yet re
jected an egg in some guise. It is nutri
ment in the most portable form and in the
most concentrated shape. Whole nations
of mankind rarely touch any other animal
food. Kings eat them plain as readily as do
the humble tradesmen. After the victory of
3uhldorf, when the Kaiser Ludwig sat at a
meal with his burggrafs and great captains,
he determined on a piece of luxury-"one
egg to every man, and two to the excellently
valiant Schwepperman." Far more than
fish-for it is watery diet-eggs are the
scholars' fare. They contain phosphorus,
which is brain food, and sulpihur, which
performs a variety of functions in the econ
omy. And they are the best of nutriment
for children, for, in a compact form, they
contain everything that is necessary for the
growth of the youthful frame. Eggs are,
however, not only food-they are medicine
also. The white is the most efficacious of
remedies for burs, and the oil extractable
from the yelk is regarded by the Russians
as an almost miraculous salve for cuts,
bruises, and scratches.
A raw egg, if swallowed in time, will ef
fectually detach a fish bone fastened in the
throat, and the white of two' eggs will ren
der the deadly corrosive sublimnate as hrtrm
less as a dose of calomel. They strengthen
the consumptive, invigorate the feeble, and
render the most suscep~tible all but proof
against jaundice in its more malignant
phase. They can also be drunk in the
shape of that "egg flip" which sustatns the
oratorical efforts of modern statesmen. The
merits of eggs do not even end here. In
France alone the wine clatritiers use more
than 80,000,000 eg'gs a year, and the Alsa
tions consume fully 38,000,000 in calico
printing an-1 in dressing the leather
used in making the finest of French kcid
gloves. Finally, not to mention vari
ous other employments for eggs in the
arts, they may, of course, almost without
trouble on the farmer's part, be converted
into fowls, whi::h, in any shape, are profit
able to the seller and welcome to the buyer.
Even egg shells are valuable, for allopath
and homeopath alike agree in regarding
them as the purest of carbonate of lime

every fibre an d tissue must be nourished,
