TURN THEM OUT.
Nor State in the Union has ever suf
fered more from Republican influence
than has South Carolina. It seems
like a hideous nightmare-those eight
years of carpetbag misrule. South
Carolinians turn, and for good rea
son too, shudderingly from a white
man in this State who casts a ballot
that might possibly be instrumental
in restoring a condition of affairs sim
ilar to the past. We do not fear any
such terrible catastrophe as the resto
ration of the carpetbagger, but it
mht be among the possibilities.
above we think is the general
seatiment of the State. Of course no
efforts are ever made to force a man
to vote the Democratic ticket. We
believe in a free ballot. But when a
man is employed to teach our chil
dren, to shape their destinies proba
bly, it seems tQ us that great care
should be exercised in the choice.
We clip the following from the
Orangeburg Times and Democrat, ev
ery word of which we endorse:
The Spartanburg Herald of last week says
it is reported that two of the Professors at
the South Carolina College walked up to the
os on November 6th' and deposited two
can tickets, much to the disgust and
'igation of the students under them. Is
it true? This is a free country, where every
man is entitled to his opinions. It is a free
country, also, where people can employ
whom they prefer to teach their sons. There
are many good men who are Republicans
and patriots to the union. But in South
Carolina, where Republican success is
fraught with such menace to all our civiliza
tion and welfare, no South Carolinian can
at the same time be a Republican and a pa
triot to South Carolina. A man has a right
to hissopinion, and he may hold it here in
South Carolina without hindrance or harm,
but his opin ons are a part of him and may,
if he asks o favor, prove him unworthy
of our confidence.
We think the trustees of the South
Carolina College madeE grand mis
take in employing any such men to
teach our Southern boys. There are
men in the South, to the manor born,
eminently qualified to fill every posi
tion in that college and why go North
for teachers? It is a State institution,
supported by State funds, and ought
to be Democratic in influence. Those
two -professors, whoever they are,
should be asked at once to tender their
resignation, and then let the trustees
do what they ought to have done a
first, elect Southern men to the posi
HYGIENE IN SCHOOLS.
School teachers should be progres
sive. Every teacher should be a hard
student, and each year be better fitted
to teach school than.he was the pre
ceding year. A third grade teacher
of one year should be a second grade
the next year, and a first~ grade the
following year. All nature teaches
that we must be either progressive or
eetrogressive, and the retrogressive
teacher is unfit for the school room.
A teacher ought to endeavor to keep
his school supplied with the very best
text books; such as are best adapted
to the children he is teaching, and
such as wiR-yield best results. Such
a book is "Smith's Physiology and
Bygiene."' It is a small book, writ
ten in a clear, aimple, beautiful style,
and as interesting as anoveL. A child
who can .read intelligently in the
third reader can study it.
Physiology and Hygiene is an im
potn study. It does not, in this
'itl book, enter into minute details,
but briefly gives a fair idea of the
meanism of our own bodies, and
how to take care of them. It shows
the evil efects on the system of nar
cotics and stimulants. It gives the
young student some idea of how won
derfully and fearfully-we are made.
We call attention to this book for
several reasons. We have been using
16 in the school room for several years,
and know whereof we speak. The
State board of education has placed
this book on the list of common school
studies, and teachers are now exam
ined on this subject the same as they
are on arithmetic and grammar. Any
man or woman who dares aspire to
the .dignity of a teacher .can easily
-teach the book, even if~, as we have
heard of several instances, they never
before heard oQf such a study as phys
iology and hygiene.
Dr. McBryde, president of the
South Carolina College, says of this
work: "A careful examination of
'Smith's Primer of Physiology and
Hygiene,' and 'The Human Body and
its Health,' has impressed me very
favorably with their merits. Science
primers are not infrequently anything
btelementary, condensation is at
tained at the expense of clearness and
simplicity of treatment. Smith's are
really what they profess to be-ele
mentary text books of science. The
presentation of their subject matter
is excellent, the langtage simple, the
style easy and interesting, the topics
well chosen, the explanations clear,
and the illustrations numerous and
effective. They are, in my opinion,
admirably adapted to the wants of
the teachers and the eapacities of the
pupils of our public and private

Gentlemen:-In 1884 a friend of mine
contracted a terrible case of blood poison,
and at once sought the advice of the best
physicians. After a four months' trial,
with a feeling of greatest despondency, le
left Chattanooga for Hot Springs, where he
remained three months. The treatment
there did not seem to do him any good, and
with a crushed spirit and with death in its
worst form staring him in his face, he came
home. He saw an advertisement of your
medicine. As his friend I supplied him
with the first few bottles. I was astonished
at the result. After the third bottle the
sores all disappeared, and his recovery was
rapid. In three months he was hard at
work, and there has been no return of the
disease. I withhdld his .name from the
public, but will send :t in confidence to any
who write for it. I give this certificate

The Conductor and the Baby.
CHrsTER, S. C.. Nov. 20.-When the Nar
row Gauge train from Lenoir came in last
Saturday afternoon, there were among its
passengers an unknown lady and an infant
apparently some three or four months old.
When the train stopped at the depot the
'lady asked prmission of Conductor Leard
[Mr. Harry Iard, who was a resident of
this town about three years ago.-Editor
Txns) to leave her child in the car while
she attended to some business. The re
quest was cheerfully granted and nothing
more thought of the matter. When
same train pulled out for Lancaster at 3.5
P. M~., the cries of an infant attracted the
attention of the passengers, who, upon in
vestigation, found the little stranger on a
seat, half frozen and without mother or
even a nurse. A kind-hearted lady on
board took the child to the stove where it
was thoroughly warmed, and everything
possible done conducive to the little passen.
ger's comfort. Still it was without visible
Conductor Leard was in charge of the
train, and. by virtue of his position, in
charge oftall its passengers, to see that they
are carried safely through to their destina
tin. This hapless decree of fate placed
upon him an entirely unexpected responsi
bility-one, in fact, amounting to a dilem
ma. He is young, kind and courteous,
ever attentive to the comfort of his passen
gers; but this forced upon him a rnew roe.
For a while his predicament was bewilder
ing. Finally a good Samaritan of Fort
Lawn came to his rescue and graciously
took the little nameless traveler in his keep
ing, stating that they had no such luxuries
at his house. When the train stopped at
that place the little fellow was borne away
in the arms of its foster-parent to a new
home in a strange land. It has since been
learned that the woman in charge of the in
fant to this place boarded the 2.45 train for
Columbia, but nothing further has been
heard from her, either as to her name or
the reason of this strange abandonment.

Enrron Trxzs:-In this time of peace and
prosperity we are apt to forget the past.
Musing the other day the past came up in
my mind,and this question came up, who
first volunteered from Clarendon in the late
war? and then the form of that noble man,
Elliott Keels, came to my memory. (Hie
was killed on Maryland Heights charging the
enemy.) He led the first company from
this our home, and with Pack, Logan, Brun
son, Lesesne, Butler, the Hodges, Stranges,
Bradhams, and a host of others whose
names will never be forgotten, helped the
State to reduce Fort Sumter and open the
ball to the long struggle which followed.
It is true not many of this command re
mains, but the few that do remain should
meet and organize so as not to let the past
be entirely forgotten. It was the peculiar
privilege of this company to defend their
State and when she no longer had need of
them they came home to their families, not
to remair. in peace but soon to enter again
the struggle, and it can be said of them
that they did their duty. Many of them
laid down their lives on the battle fields of
Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mis
sissippi, and Georgia, and many have passed
away since the war, few remaining in our
midst, but that few we are anxious to see to
gether again that Clarendon may have an
opportunity to view them as she did that
day when they as a company offered them
selves to that noble soldier and statesman,
State Rights Gist, who was governor of S.
C. Well do some of us remember the beat
of the drum on that April day in 1861 when
they took up the line of march to Fort Sum
ter, and the tears and good byes and the
"God bless you boys," as this noble compa
ny left our little town. Asx OnD CmzZE.
