THE MANING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1889.
You can often determine the value
of a man's character from the charac
ter of his enemies.
Debate has begun in the lower
house of congress on the bills to ad
mit five of the territories as states.
The last Legislature was a poor
excuse for a law-making body. Its
proceedings, to say least of it, would
scarcely have done credit to a boys
The News and Courier and the
Charleston World each issued a six
teen page edition last Sunday, and
each published a complete novel,
"Mis. Bretherton," in their issue. It
was a splendid feat of Southern jour
From what some of our merchan ts
say there has not been more than
half the lien business opened up here
during the present month to date as
was during the same time last year.
This may be a good sign. It is only
regretted that the necessity exists for
any si h business at all. Our entire
people,'both merchants and farmers,
would be more prosperous if they
could live without it.
We understand that a number of
the public roads in different sections
,of the county are in a bad and neg
lected condition. In some instances
ditches necessary for purposes of
_ drainage, crossing the public roads,
have been allowed to fill up, and the
bridges over them have been remov
ed. This is contrary to law, and is
really injustice on the part of ex-road
commissioners to the parties whose
lands are thus affected. By a recent
Act of the General Assembly the
county commissioners are made re
ponsible for this. work, and they
ould attend to it as soon as possi
ble, as such action on their part may
save the eounty a suit for damages.
The progress-and business prosper
ity of a place may lag, and its people
n way become discouraged and lose
their energy, but time in its unceas
ing march waits not, and the business
world moves onward apparently for
getful of dead places and the people
that inhabit -them. We are not by

The forming of the new county of
-Florence seems -to have turned the
heads, of some of its. lawyers, and
neryttahave~ affected the Attorney
Gnerali. A great tempest in a.tea
pot -was raised about the legality ol
the rih of the appointed officers to
Ioldofleand all such stuff. The
temnpest is over, and it is agreed to let
matters be as they are.
More fuss has been made over the
.lrming of Florence, and over its or
~anition, than there is any need of.
They have 'a part of Clarendon that
they ought not to have. It is said
-.thatsome ofthe-Salem men who could
mot get such offces in Clarendon as
they 'wished, did all they could for the
new county in hopes- of getting some
public pap. We do not know how~
iunch truth there is ini this assertion,
ha- -we w~i venture the assertion that
Vhe parts of Clarendon and Wil
lamsburg used in forming this new~
vounty will be shared out for two or
three years yet. We are informed thai

parts of Salem, to get a part of Clar
enden-te assist in -formning Florence,

delegationi in the Legislature knewu

strong medicines which I took
brought on Rheumatism, and I went
to Hot Springs, Ark., for two :months,
which seemed to cure the disease. but
it was only smothered, for on my re

During the early part of the past
spring (1S8) my body was covered
with boils. At one time more than
fifty were counted on my body and
limbs. My face was not exempt from
the painful trouble. The usual rem

why I began taking S. S. S. I do not
know, but almost immediately I began:
to improve. I took nearly three bot-'

It was your medicine which effected
the cure, when everything else had
failed. Yours truly,

New Names For New States.
WASINGTON, January S.--The proposi
tion advanced by Congressman Springer,
of llinois, to change the names of se veral
of the Territorit s to solething raore in
keeping with their general character istics
has attracted \ \idd attention. 1'robabl v
twenty letters a day out. of Mr. S:ringer's
volumijns mail are de-vo:ed to this subject

The iaet is. Ih.- Western peolCi:ea:rent

asa:uch as those who address .i. Sprini'er
reside mainly in the New Enghand or Mid
die States. Many of the writers are women
who characterize the proosed names as
":esthetic," "euphonious," or "nice." c
cording to their respective f:ncies. Others,
again, suggest names quito as fitting as
thoa. upon which Mr. Springer has deelded.
1Lw it many object to the pr)osed change.
There is a peeniar s esiv.ness attach

the first fem le chid born in the family.
The name of Dakota will be retained for
the northern half of the Territory.
Tacoma, which it is desired to substitute
as the namie for Washington Territory, has
also an Indan origin. Upon the highest
mountain peaks in the '1Trritory are two
hillocks, which lie side by side and which

Mr. Sianley has been eno~bled to perfeet

so that he can produce it, ready for spin

can be made into cotton bagging, nloor mat
ting, etc., and for either usc. it compares fa
vorably with the product made from jute.
His machinery at Eastover has a capacity
for preparing one ton of pinc straw fibre
ready for spinning per day. This woven
into bagging would be able to be supplied
at three cents a yard, and reckoning six
yards to the bale, the low cost of the new

:0W GO WE D. OSU GRAVES?
We must eat or we cannot live.
This we all know. But do we all
know that we die by eating? It is
said we dig our graves with our
eth. How foclish this sounds.
Yet it is fearfuilly true. We are ter
riled at the approach of the cholera
nd yellow fevcer, vet there is a dis
ease constantly at our doors and in
our Louses far more dangerous and
destructive. Most people have in
their own stomachs a poison, more
slow, but quite as fatal as the germs
)f those maladies which sweep men
into eternity by thousands without
warning in the times of great epi
Jenics. But it is a mercy that, if
we are watchful, we can tell when
we are threatend. The following
are among the symi:ptoms, yet they
do not aways necessarily appear in
the same order, nor are they always
the sane in different cases. a 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
not eat enough, and occasionally no
appetite at all; dullness and slug
gishness of the mid; no ambition
to study or work; more or less head
ache and heaviness in the head;
4izziness on rising to the feet or
moving suddenly; furred and coat
cd tongue; a sense of a load on the
stomach that nothing removes; hot
and dry skin at times; yellow tinge
in the eyes; scanty and high-colored
urine; sour taste in the mouth, fre
quently attended by palpitation of
the heart; impaired vision, with
:pots that seem to be swimming in
the air before the eyes; a cough,
with a greeni.-colored expecto
I ration; poor nights' rest; a sticky
slime about the teeth and gums;
hands anid feet cold and clammy;
irritable temper and bowels bound
ap and costive. This disease has
puzzled the physicians and still puz
zles them. It is the commonest of
.:ilnents and yet the most compli
cated and mysterious. Sometimes
it is treated as consumption, some
times as liver complaint, and then
again as malaria and even heart dis
ease. But its real nature is that of
constipation and dyspepsia. It arises
in the digestive organs and soon
affects all the others through the
corrupted and poisoned blood.
Often the whole body-including
the nervous system-is literally
starved, even when there is nc
emaciation to tell the sad story.
Experience has shown that there is
put one remedy that can certainly
cure this disease in all its stages,
namely, Shaker Extract of Roots or
Mother Seigel's Cura ive Syrup. If
never fails but, nevertheless, no time
should be lost in trying other so
called reredies, for they will do no
good. Get this great vegetable
preparation. (discov.cred by a vener

And for the Democracy.
Tnm Sox believes that the campaign for
the election of a Democratic Congress in
180 and a Democratic President in 1S92
should begin on or about the fourth of next
March. Tn.: Sr- wiul be on hand at the
beginning and until the end of the most
interesting and important political conflict
since the war, doing its honest utmost, as
ever, to secure the triumph: of the Democrat
ic party and the permanent supremacy of
the principles held by Jefferzon, Jackson,
The great fact of the year is the return to
absolute power of the common enemy of all
good Democrats-the political organization
for whose overthrow TuE SUs fought at the
front for fifteen years, the memorable years
of Grant and the Fraud Hayes, and Garfield
It is the same old enemy that Democrats
now confront, and he will be intrenched in
the same strong position. It has been car
ried once by brave and hopeful fighting.
Do you not believe with Tnr So; that the
thing can be done again? Wait and see!
The hope of the Democracy is in the
loyal efforts of a united press, cherishing
no memories of past differences in non-es
sentials, forgeittg everything but the les

is what the c-nlightened SOUTH says of
It became the favorite Magazine of the
South fromi the start. WHlY? Because the
educated South is DEMOCRATIC and
wants an honest Government; because DUN
PIATT, the Editos, is aggressively inde
pendent and a true patriot of a united
country; because its policy is that of all
honest and educated persons: FREE
TADE, less governmental interference in
personal matters, and good wholesome fic
tion; because the Editor heartily welcomes
SOUTHERN WRITERS to its pages, e. q.,
the best literary production by an Amuerican
writer since the war is OLD MAN GTLBERT,
by a sotuthern lady, MRS. ELIZABETIH
BELLAMY, in the June number; because
the Editor gives quality and quantity and
nt big names for your money; because the
ablest persons of tbe country contribute to
the pag~es of BELFORD'S, such as Hon.
