WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 1888.
Mr. James E. Davis attended a
meeting at Lanes yesterday to ap.
point the time and place- for holding
the -judicial convention, Pawley's
Island has been selected as the
place, and July 30th as the time.
Marlboro held a county convention

R get-the senator; one representa
live, sheriff,: clerk of court, and two
county commissioners. The Repub
icans wil get ope representative, pro
bata judge, school commi oner, cor
ne, and one county commissioner.
A county commissioner's pay will
mot average $200 a year including his
mileage, and yet so many men are wil
ling to neglect their farms for the
"small pay. It's a poor business; The
;pay is very small, yet a county cor
missioner should be a shrewd, honest,
carnful, straightforward, intelligent
man, experienced in business matters.
Tha's the kind of a man he ought to
be, but in some counties the idea
neems to prevail that any fellow that
int good for any thing else will make
a county commissioner. No man
who is afailure in the management of
iMs own business should be entrusted
with the management of the county's
Democratie Executive Committee.

Monday, and was called to order by

When a man passes under the iron rod of
the law, and its ponderous gates close after
him, while he is thrust into the company of

Scarcely a man passes the portals of the

robbed of his manhood, and who does nut

The "resurrection society" arose this mtn

at 6 o'clock.- They were sent to take a; bath
and to put on the stripes, which now
mark them as the sons of crime. After
this they were shaved by the penitentiary
barber, and had their hair cut. The heavy
beard of the elder Bond was cut, acid he
parted with it reluctantly. Captaixi Sligh
talked with them and gave them to :der

KINGSTREE, July 13.-That South Caroli
na agriculturists have too long atdhered to
cotton planting (and that alone,- is a fact
too apparent to any deliberate' observer);
that they are now realizing their mistake,
and endeavoring to retrieve their former
losses, can be seen in almost any county of
the State. A notable instance of' this latter
case is to be found in Kingstree.- Prof. Nat
Allen, a man whose cultivated talents gave
him the insight that has prove his bonan
za, realized some time since that the plant
ing his land in cotton was a- waste of time
and money. He planted- a' vineyard of
seven acres, instead of actbton crop. His
success willbe understood-when it is known
that his last week's shinments to the New
York and Baltimore niaskets of this luscious
fruit amounted to seven hundred pounds.
This vineyard is at beautiful place. The
varieties planted are'the 'Perkins." "Cham
pion," "Delaware." and "lye's Seedling."
Professor Allen thinks that with his well
drained lands he will show the people of
Carolina that the soil- iiwell adapted to

commends itself for a constitutional

HOW DO WE DIG OUR GRAVES?
We must eat or we cannot live.
This we all know. But do we all
know that we die by eating 1 It is
said we dig our graves with our
teeth. How foolish this sounds.
Yet it is fearfully true. We are ter
rified at the approach of the cholera
and yellow fever, yet there is a dis
ease constantly at our doors and in
our houses far more dangerous and
destructive. Most people have in
their own stomachs a poison, more
slow, buit quite as fatal as the germs
of those maladies which sweep men
into eternity by thousands without
warning in the times of great epi
demies. But it is 'a mercy that, if
we are watchful, we can tell when
we are threatened.- The following
are among the symtoms, yet they
do not always necessarily appear in
the same order, nor a-e they always
the same in different cases. There
is a dull and sleepy feeling; a bad
taste in the mouth, especially in the
morning;' the appetite- is' change
able, sometimes poor and again. it
seems as-though the patient could
notreat enough, and occasionally no
appetite at- all; dullness and 'slug
gishnesa of the mind; no ambition
to study or work; more or less head
ache and .heaviness in the head;
dizziness on*rising to the feet or
moving suddenly; furred and coat
ed tongue;- sense of a load on the
stoahthat'nothing removes; hot
and dry skin at times; yellow tinge
in the eyes se'anty and high-colored
urine; sout taste in the mouth, fre
quently attended by palpitation of
the heart ; impaired vision, with
spots that seem to be swimming in
the air before the eyes; a cough,
with a greenish-colored expecto
ration; poor nights' rest; a sticky
slime about.>the teeth and gums;
hands and feet cold and clammy;
irritable temper and bowels bound
up and costive. This disease Has
puzzled the physicians and still pur
zles them. It is the commonest di
ailments and yet the most compli
cated and mysterious. Sometimes
it is treated as consumption, some
times as liver complaint,, and then
agin as malaria and even heart dis
ease. But its real nature is that of
constipationanddyspepsia. It arises
ize the digestive organs and soon
atects all the others through the
corrupted and poisoned blood.
Often the whole body-including
the nervous system-is literaiy
starved, even when there is zio
emaciation to tell the sad story.
.Experience has shown'that thereis
put one remedy that can certainly
cure this disease in all its stages,
namely, Shaker Extract of Roots or
Mother Seigel's-Curative Syrup. It
never fails'but,-nevertheless, no time
shouldt be'losti in trying other so
called remedies, for they will do no
good. Get this- great vegetable
preparation. (ctiscovered by a vener

of each pupil. In all work done, in whatever department, and whatever the
extent of ground covered, our ziotto shall always be -osounemn To this
end, we shall require that every lesson be learned, if not inr time for the class
