.Wofford College in Charleston.
It is understoodthat Prof. Daniel A Du
Pre, of Wotford College, will come to Char
leston during:the Floral Fair, and be ac
companied by the present senior class of
,that college. The special purpose, besides:
,the pleasure incident to the trip, of thet visit
.of Prof. DtiPh e atudthe senior cltss will be
to visit the phosphate works aron. Char
leston, and probably:to .visit theo several
foci of the old earthquPke and ft:r other
rcientific obs, ryations. It .will be remaem1
bered that Prof. )a~re took the last senior
class in Wofiord to Washington lait year,
the principal purpose of that trip being-t
visit.the Smithsouiinn Institute. The visit
:to Charleston is doubtless being looked for
.ward to with great pleasureby the students
and their profes -or. They will be warmly
welcomed by the people of Cha;dleston.

The Queen Losing Her Mind.
LoNDOs, March 24.-It would be hardly
-worth while to notice the reported rumor
of the critical mental condition of Queen
Victoria, had it not been so frequently re
iterated in the last few days, and did not
circumstances give a certain :ir of proba
bility to such assertions as have been so
.prevalent at different periods since the
death of the Prince Consort. The Queen's
ecentrcities have been so marked that a
project of the regency has been seriously
considered, but such action has been re
garded as unneecessray, so long as her con
duct did not continue to transgress the
bounds of propriety. It is now said that
recent events have markedly developed her
Majesty's tending to melancholia.
The excitement consequent upon the
death of Emperor William, and the ascent
of her daughter to the proud position which
she now occupies, have affected her visibly.
They Nerer Will be Missed.
After you get angry and stop your paper
just poke your finger in water, pull it out
and look for a hole. Then you will know
how sadly you are missed. A man who
thinks a paper cannot thrive without his
support ought to go off and stay awhile.
When he comes back half his friends will
not know that he was gone,- and the other
half will not car a cent, while the world at
largo kept no account of. his movement.
You will find things that you cannot en
dorse in every: paper. Even the Bible is
rather plain andbits some hard licks.. If
you were to get mad. and burn your Bible
the hundreds of presses would still go on
printing it, and when you stop your paper
and call the editor. names, the paper will
still be published, and what is more--yotu

Big Caroban Pines.
In a private letter to a gentleman in this
city from C&.:John B. Whitford there is an
amount of some forest giants lately meas
ured in Greene and Wilson counties, on
Conten Ceek. One pine tree measures
22 feet in circumferenee, and would make a
stick of timber, solid. heart, 6 feet square
and 35 feet long, or' straight-edge plank 6
feet wide and 35 feet long. Another pine
measured 18 feet in circumference and 100
feet to the rst .branch. Soine white oaks
were measured and would make planks 2
feet wide and 60 feet long. A pine which
was felled for making shingles measured
4) feet in diameter and 142 feet in length.

pondent, B. A., (Balaam's Ass,) has
again spoken and will continue to do
so, savs he, as long as Office Holder
is in the tield for any office. To this
I have no objection so long as he con
fines himself to the truth; but I do
seriously object to his crowding with
in one short paragraph five lies, to
wit: 1st, he says I managed to get a
meeting after the night train had
passed. Everybody here knows toi
meeting was duly advertised some
day previous. 2d, he says I managed
to get myself nomiuate.d. I can prove
by the 21 voters present that I so
licited no mau's vote or intimated in
any way that I wished the nomination.
3d, he says that I found I could count
on the end of my finger all the votes
I could get. Now I am no politician
and therefore don't know much about
this but I have been informed by
those who are pretty good judges that
bad the election gone on the regular
ticket would have been electel. 4th,
he says I had my deputy declare the
election illegal. 5th, he says there
was a dearijohn for the occasion.
Were it necessary I can pricure
certificates proving each and every
one of the above assertions false.
I am now done with this subject
unless B. A. wishes to pursue it fur
ther, in which case I will let the peo
pie know why be commenced this
uncalled for attack upon me.
The Dulty of Parents in Sickly Seasons
of the fear.
We commend the following testi
imony as to the elicacy of S. S. S. in
measles and fever, from one of the
best known physicians practicing in
Georgia. It will be seen that he strong
ly testifies to the happy results accru
ing from the use of this medicine in
preventing the frequently very serious
consequences that follow an attack
of measles. The resultant effects of
an attack of measles remain in the
system for months, and unless great
care is exercised the lingering poison
in the blood will attack some vital
part of the system, endangering life.
We take great pleasure in giving the
widest possible circulation to this em
inent physician's candid and manly
letter written in the cause of suffering
Eiuv r , G.., March 31, 1887.
My.dear Sirs--I have used your
S. S. S. medicine with exceptional
benefit on patients convalescing from
measles. A feature of that disease is
that it leaves the mucous membrane
chronically inflamed-that is, the in
flamation continues from four to six
months. I have given it to several
patients just getting out of bed from
the measles, and always with the hap
I also used S. S. S. in convalescent
fever cases with the best result. It
will, in my judgement, prevent sum
mer dysentery, if one will take a few
bottles in the spring, thus preparing
the bowels for the strains of sum
mer. I am prompted to send you this
letter, because just now I am aware
that measles prevail in Southwest
Georgia. While I hesitate to appear
as a voucher for proprietary remedies,
S. S. S. has beoome such a standard
medicine with many regular physi
cians, that I am relieved of the em
barrassment ordinarily attached to a
regular physician's endorsement of
proprietary medicines. Besides the
claims of -suffering humanity are
greater than selfish professional
ethics. Yours sincerely,

G~ood Advic to the Negro.
It is reported that a large number
of so-called agents are at work in the
Southern States. Their objects is to
persuade the colored people that they
can make their everlasting fortunes
by emigrating to Brazil. The most
remarkable yarns are told of big~
crops, big wages and big money gen
It won't work, though. The negro
is not as simple as some folks take
him to be. He has heard of the old
adage, "Out of the frying pan into
the fire," and has altogether too much
sense to make himself an illustration
of it. Of course there is a good deal orl
poverty' amonag the blacks of the
South. Still, we venture to say that
no three or four millions of people in
their peculiar circumstances ever did
so much in twventy years to better
their surroundings. Nothing could~
be more depressing tha'n the condi
tion in which they found themselves
at the end of the war. It seemed iai
possible, even to us of the North, for
them to get any grip on American'
life agd ambition for at least a couple
of generations. 'But they have made
steady and. in many instances, re
markable progress. The money they
have saved, the thrift they have man
ifested, the celerity with which they
have fitted themselves to the ne& cir
cumstances, are clear proofs that time
will make all things straight.
'T.he Brazil scheme is a delusion.
and a snare. -It is a spider and fly

by the most promising exodus that

zough sets in, at. first dry, but
vster a few monthS it is attend

'iervous, irritable and gloomy,
.md has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirl

rising up suddenly. The bow

dry and hot a tiues; the blood

the whites of the eyes become

so:etimes with a sweetish
taste; this is frequently at,
tended with palpitation of the
heart; the vision becomes im
paired, with spots before the
eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All
of these symptoms are in turn
present. It is thought that
narly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some
of its varied forms.
It has been found that phy
sicians have mistaken the cause
of this disease. Some have
treated it for a liver complaint,
others for kidney disease, etc.,
etc., but none of these kinds of
treatient have been attended
with success; for it is really
constipation and dyspepsia It.
is also found that Shaker Ex
tract :> Roots, or Mother Sei
gel's Cutrative Syrup, when
properly p~repar~ed will remove
this disease in all its stages.
Care must be taken, however,
to secure the genuine article.

she had been long afilicted with
dyspepsia and disease of the

Mrs. Barton the medicine, says
he has sold it for four years

I was so low with dyspep

tried the Shaker Extract of

to-day I rejoice in good health.

the Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior class of colleges.
PLAN OF INSTRUCTION.
The most approved text books are used. The blackboard is deemed an
essential in the class room. The meaning of an author is invariably required
of each pupil. In all work done, in whatever department, and whatever the
extent of ground covered, our motto shall always be Thoroughness. To
this end, we shall requir e that every lesson be learned, if not in time for the
class recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so long as
the pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons
