FAIERS AND FARMING.
It has been well and truly said,
there is no reason why farmers may
not lead happy lives. Ambition, if
carried too far, becomes a misfortune
and excludes contentment ard enjoy
ient. The causes that bring discon
tent are so numerous that this feel
lng seems to have become a part of
our natures; and in our depravity,
exen though faring well, we are apt
to imagine those in other fields of
labor have an easier and a better lot
nlife. This should not be so. The
battle of life is a hard one, if cheer
fuly fought,- and when under such
depresin ifluences as these, it is
Of course there are many things
to discourage us in any business, and
farming probably has its objectionable
features, but it also has its attrac
tions, andtfor those who live for what
there is in lif, thpre is no business
that affords more contentment and
happiness than farming.
S 'gwould be but gloomy
eifwe had nothing else but
spring," and oui' farmers would be
come even more careless of their in
teresta than at present, if it was al
ways seemingly easy sailing. Great
manse for discontent must sometimes
come to them if they are to be thor
oughly aroused to their interests.
Whether the cause is great or not
we wilnot attempt to say. But the
recent action of our Clarendon farm
ers is attempting to organize a County
Farmers' Alliance would indicate that
*there is atleast a desire to do some
thing to better their condition. "Be
itever so humble there is no place
like home" is a sentiment dear to ev
ery true Southern heart, one that will
hold good as long as time lasts-and
when our farmers find their condition
growing gradually worse-in fact al
ready but little better than that of
the squalid peasants who live in over
crowded countries where the rich
- and powerful hold lordly and domi
ueering sway over the lower classes,
it is burt natural that they should be
gin to cast about for a remedy. But,
as this is an off year, there will hardly
be as much interest manifested in
thiebehalif on thepart of the politico
farmera among us as would have
~been had it been on election year,
nevertheless, we shall watch with in
terest the organization of the Farm
ers' Alliance, and any other steps that
may be taken for the benefit of the
agrcultural class of our citizens.

The new year opens with reasonable

Taking The Tax Off Tobacco.
WAsnINGON~, January 14.-Representa
tive Cowles, of North Carolina, created quite
a flutter in the House to-day by introducing
a bill providing for the repeal of the tobac
co tax, and demanding that it be referred to
the committee on appropriations instead of
the ways and means committee, where it
properly belonged. Mr. McMillin and oth
!er members of the latter committee ques
tioned the propriety of sending such a
measure to the appropriations committee.
Speaker Carlisle ruled that a majority had
power to send a bill to any standing com
mittee. Whereupon Mr. McMillin ex
pressed a desire that the motion of the
gentleman from North Carolina should be
voted down. "Now is a chance for you
gentlemen who want an opportunity to vote
for the abolition of the tobaeco tax," ex
claimed Mr. Cowles standing at his desk
and wavmng his hands aioft. The Virginia
and North Carolina delegations, assisted by
an almost solid Republican vote, together1
with Messrs. Tillman of South Carolina, and
Compton of Maryland, carried the day, and
the bill goes to the appropriations commit
tee. It is hardly probable that such a bill
will becomea law during the present Bession,
but its friends claim that it will pass the
House if an opportunity is given to vote
Cut in Two by a Buzz Saw.
Horzr Hzrzm January 11.-A horrible ac
cident occurred near here this afternoon at
the saw mill of Jerry L. Smith. Ellie Scott,
a workingman at the mill, stumbled over a
piece of scantling and was precipitated
across the saw while in motion. His body
was severed just below the hips, death re
sulting almost immediately.
BrrER, Jan. 13.-An alarm of fire was
struck to-day at 2 o'clock, and the roof of
Mr. W. J. Anderson's dwelling house was
discovered to be in flames. By the prompt
and vigorous efforts of those who first reach
ed the scene, the fire was got under control
by the time the fire department arrived, al
though it responded promptly. The dam
age is slight and covered by insurance.
In going to the fire, the steamer ran over
Mr. T. C. Scaffe, and inflicted injuries, the
most serious of which was to his foot,. which
is badly crushed.
Mr. R. R. Browden, who died yesterday
morning of spinal meningitis, was buried
at ten o'clock this morning. His death is
notable for the fact that it is the second from
this dreadful and mysterious malady that
has occurred in this city during the past
month. There is another case now under
treatment here, that is considered beyond
the hope of recovery. Spinal meningitis
is an unusual disease at present, but your
readers in the upper part of this state will
remember what nutabers fell victims to it
about the year 1872.-Charleston World.
The Washington CWic says: "Another
addition has been made to the rapidly in

of thre houses owned by Major Ferguson.
The house, which is a three story pressed

the principal improvement being on the
front, the former high stoop to be torn down

The barkeeper of one of the large New
York hotels has decided the interesting

per cent., but as the month advances they
gain steadily and by February 1 they are

Mrs. J. T. Love, of Leesburg, Ga.,
widow of an eminent and successful
physician, says under date of Sept.
20, 188S: My husband in a large and
lucrative practice used Swift's Specific,
and with it restored to health many
persons in whose cases all other med
icines proved useless. One young man
who had been treated for six years
for blood poison, his condition had
gradually grown worse, and got to be
horrible. He was helpless for twelve
months and blind for eleven days.
His case seemed incurable. But he

At the time I began taking S. S. S.

The Mason Cylinder Giun.
Mr. R. Rivers Lawton, who plants the
Cravat place, near Otranto, has one of the
Mason cylinder gins at his ginnery. He
says that there is no question that the lint
turned out is of a much zuperior quality to
that turned out by a saw gin. He says that
less power is required to run the Mason
gin, and he thinks that there is not any
question that the Mason cylinders as now
constructed are thoroughly durable. Up to
a few days ago Mr. Lawton was of the opin
ion that the Mason gin did not clean the
seed quite so well as the saw gin, but he
does not think so now. In a test by gin
ning 300 pounds of seed cotton on it, and
the same amount on a saw gin, the yield
was live per cent. in favor of the Mason gin.

A Woman from Austria.
Near the village of Zilling
dorf, in Lower Austria, lives
Maria Haas, an intelligent and
industrious woman, whose story
of physical suffering and final
relief, as related by herself, is
of interest to English women.
"I was employed," she says,
"in the work of a large farm
house. Overwork brought eon
sick headache, followed by a
deathly fainting and sickness
of the stomach, until I was
unable to retain either food or
drink. I was compelled to
take to my bed for several
weeks. Getting a little better
from rest and quiet, I sought
to do some work, but was soon
taken with a pain in my side,
which '.n a little while seemed
to spread over my whole body,
and throbbed in my every limb.
This was followed by a cough
and shortness of breath, until
finalv I could not sew, and I
took to my bed for the second,
and, as I thought, for the last
time. My friends told me that
my time had nearly come, and
that I could not live longer
then when the trees Vut on
their green once more. then I
happened to get one of the Sei
ge[ pamphlets. I read it, and
my dear mother bought me a
battle of SEIGEB's SYRP,
(Shaker Extract of Roots)
which I took exactly according
to directions, and I had not
t.ken the whole of it before I
felt a change for the better. My
last illness began June 3d,
1882, and continued to August
9th, when I began to take the
Syrup. Very soon I could do a
little light work. The cough
left me, and I was no more
troubled in breathing. Now I
am perfectly cured; and oh;
how happy I am! I cmft
express gratitude enough for
SEIGEL'S SYRUP (Shaker Ex
tract of Roots). Now I must
tell you that the doctors in our
district distributed handbills
cautioning the people against
the medicine, telling them it
would do no good, and many
were thereby influenced to de
stroy the Seigel pamphlets; but
now, whenever one is to be
found, it is kept like a relic.
The few preserved are bor
rowed to read, and I have lent
mine for six miles around ouir
district. People have come
eighteen miles to get me to buy
the medicine for them, know
ing that it cured me, and to be
sure to get the right kind. I
know a woman who was look
ing like death, and who told
them there was no help for her,
that she had consulted several
doctors, but none could help
her" I1 told her of Seigel s
Syrup, and wrote the name
down for her that she might
make no mistake. She took
my advice and the Syrup, and
now she is in perfect health,
and the people around us are
amazed. The medicine has
made such progress in our
neighborhood that people say
they don't want the doctor any
more, but they take the Syrup.
Sufferers from gout who were
confined to their beds and could
hardly move a finger have been
cured by it. There is a girl in
our district who caught a cold
by going through some water,
and was in bed five years with
costiveness and rheumaticepains,
and had to have an attendant
to watch by her. There was
not a doctor in the surrounding
district to whom her mother
had not applied to relieve her
child, but every one crossed
themselves and said they could not
help her. Whenever the little bell
rang, which is rung in our place
when anybody is dead, we thought
surely it was for her; but Seigel's
Syrup and Pills (Shaker Extract of
Roots) saved her life, and now she
is as healthy as anybody, goes to
church, and can work even in the
fields. Everybody was astonished
when they saw her out, knowing
how many years she had been in
bed. To-day she adds her grati
tude to mine for God's mercies and
Seigel's Syrup. MLimI Haas.

Real estate is not assessed this year, 1889,
and remains at the same valuation it was
in 1888, except in cases where parties have
bought and sold between the first day of
January, 1888, and the first day of January,
All new strnctures erected between the
first day of January, 1888, and the first day
of January, 1889, are to be returned this
year, 1889, for taxation, and those destroyed
durng that time deducted.
Assessors and Tax Payers will please en
ter the first given name of the Tax Payer in
full, also make a separate return for each
Tax Payer for the Township the property is
in, and always make the return of real
property in the same name it was returned
in the year before, unless it has changed
ownership, and then in the party's name
who owned it on the first of January, 1889.
All changes of buying and selling land
must be made on the tax payer's return be
tween the 1st of January, 1889, and the
20th of February, 1889. After the latter
date it will be too late to get the change
made for the said year 1889. And another
important matter in making or taking re
turns is, where the tax payer owns land, to
insert the post office as their place of resi
dence, and where they own no real proper
ty, to mention the owner's land that they
live on as being their place cu residence,
which assists the tax payer as well as the
County Treasurer in making the collection,
and saves costs and penalties too.
Every male citizen between the ages of
twenty.one and fitty year.;, on the first day
of January, 1859, except those incapable o!
earni.g a support from being maimed or
from other causes, shall be deemed taxable

penalty added thereto, unless prevented by
sickness during the time ot' lsting, or out
of the county at the tume, (not knowing the
time of listin;g is no excuse,) and is the
reason that the lad owner has to get two
receipts when they make their return after
the 20th February eaeb year.
