The Legislature of North Carolina
is considering a bill to amend the
State election laws. The amendment
is almost an exact copy of the South

In 1876 South Carolina cast 180,000
votes for Presidential electors. Since

Col. Charles R. Jones, once editor
and proprietor of the Charlotte Daily
Observer, is now in the Morganton (N.
C.) Insane Asyldm. He did a very
profitable business until he began to
take a hand in politics. In 1882 he
ran as an Independent candidate for
Congress, and of .course was over
whelmingly defeated. He lost money
steadily from that time until 1887,
when be was forced to make an assign
ment. His unfortunate condition is
said to be due to the effects of the
opium and morphine habit.
The Florence Times is in the broad
road of prosperity, and we congratu

so increased that he has taken in a

devote his time specially to editing
the Times, while Prince will devote
himuself to the large job printing bus
igg The Times was full of good
newsy matter last week, and it de

the people of Florence. Prince has
worked hard for the development of
Florence, and has done no little in
placing that town where it now is.
!esident Cleveland sent to the
Senate last Saturday the nomination
of Ex-Governpor Hugh S. Thomupson,,
to be one of the civil service commis
sioners, in place of Alfred P. Edger
ton, who was removed because the
?resident did not think he exhibited
suffcient interest in and sympathy
with the civil service methods. It is
hoped that the Senate will confirm
the nomination, but it is possible that
-body, which, has a Republican major
ity, will refuse to do so, and by wait
ing a month, give to Harrison the
* privilege of filling the vacancy. Mr.
Edgerton, it is claimed, will stoutly
contest for reappointment to the po
sition. The President's letter re
~~iaoving Mr. Edgerton was brief and
to the point, consisting of but one
sentence: "You are hereby removed
from the office of civil service com
missioner." The President is very
anxious todeave Gov. Thompson in
a good and poemanent position. Gov.

A Plea for Harvins Railroad.
SumeTos, Feb. 11.-A d.y or two ago
a petition was shown us, emanating from
Manning, the object of which was to pre
sent to the Grand Jury the railroad run
ning out from that town parallel to the
road leading westward, as a nuisance, and
have it as such abated.
Surely the gnod people of' the town are
acting hastily and inconsiderately, being
lead by impulse into a condemnation of one
of the most important enterprises it has ev
er had, and which if accomplished, would
result in great financial loss to its author.
Manning owes as much to Scott Harvin as
any other man who has ever lived there.
To the manor born, he has given all his
splendid energies to the building up of his
-native DOl:.Aho, nan'.trions energetwe,
scrupulously exact in all his bousiness rela
tions, he to-day is an example worthy the
imitation of all our young men. Manning
does not seem to know when she has a good
thing. If she is too small a place for Scott
Harvin, why Sumumerton will welcome him
with oper arms, and let him build her brick
kilns, run saw mills, grist mills, gins, and
build all the railroads he wants.
If it was wrong to let him build the road
where it is, it will be doubly a wrong now
to make him move it. "Two wrongs do
not make a right" Spealking for a g-reat
many people here, I will say, that whenever,
during our past relations with Ma-nning,
we have been compelled, laboriously to un
dertake a trip there we have been always
obliged to go five miles further than we
ought, and the Barvin Railroad will not
impose a much heavier burden upon us;
for, by going only a mile further out of the
way, we can get there and not come in col
lision with the railroad either, and we pro
pose to continue our occasional visits, if we
have to take the Wilsons road.
For years we have been trying to get a
public road to the county seat. In starting
from here we have three routes, one for
some miles in the direction of Sumter, the
other towards Nelsons Ferry, points dia
metrically opposite, and neither in any way
leading towards our destination. The
third route is through the woods, no road
as all, but where we really ought to have
one. But we have not as yet 'oeen consid
ered of sufficient importance to be granted
No, our idea is that the public road that
has been injured should be itself condemn
ed, and abandoned, inasmuch as it leads to
no where, although it raakes a big start;
and the county should gramt the Summer
ton and Jordan section a straight road fromn
King's place direct to 3lannin~g, thereby
saving the mile that is unnecessarily trav
eled to McLeod's corner. Jvsvicz.
Justice Wields a Partial Sceptre.
The Colunbia Register of Tuesday contains
an account of a difficulty which occurred in
that city on Monday afternoon between Capt.
W. B. Lowrance and John Bausktt. Esq.,
United States Commissioner, in which Baus
kett used a pistol, and an innocent by-stand
er came near losing his life. But it is the
same old story. The Rafjister says: "The
whole affair is a most regretable one; and it
is a matter for congratulation th Lhe con
sequences were not more seri" -.At la'st
accounts no arrests had been -nas.e, r'nd no
complaint lodged with the police by either
party to warrant one."
If neither of the gentleanen involve. J wish
to make a charge, the grand jury of Ilieh
land county should certainly in-estigate the
matter. When a poor aegro is found w-ith a
pistol, or razor, in his pocket he is sent to
jail, charged with carrying concealed wecap
ons; but here we have a Uniited States Comn
missioner, in our capital city, in sight of
the State House, under our boaAed demo
cratic government, with a deadly w.:pon in
his pocket anid ready to use it on the sil git
What is our State government coming to?
When has a man with money and political
infuence been punished in South Carolina?
Are our State laws made and executed for
the protection of gentlemnen (so called) and
for the punishment of poor maen and ne
groes? If the grand jury ot Rtichland countr
does not sift this matter to the bottom, and
bring John Bauskett, Esq., to justice for
carrying a pistol (if for nothing cl'ee) every
man on it will be false to his oath. The
sooner a few such men arc made to sr'tier
the extreme penalty of the 1:'.w, the sooner
the reprehensible practice of carrying con
cealed weapons will be broken up.
We shall watch this case with much inter
est to, see if the "gentlemen of the jury'
have back-bone enough to do their duty.

It is not generally known that one of the

she attributes to the habit of chewing gum
acquired at school.
Just now when the voice of woman is
heard in politics, on the platform and from

Fruits of a Mortgage.
We saw a poor farmer receive a cheek for
s5(') Monday. It cost him a mottgage on
"200 acress of good land worth $200o0. lIe
paid the loan agent s25, bought sonic gro
ceries and he had fully S300 left that he
had no use for. He had never had this
much money before and he felt good. Iii :
family were with him and he spent $100
more in finery for them. He bought a fan
cy cultivator and $100 was nearly gone. In
three hours time he couldn't s-e where the
rest had gone. He owed a hundred dollars
in scattering debts and of course could not
pay out with the $80. He looked at the cul
tivator and cursed. He rebuked his little
girl for telling :in that he had forgotten to
bay a pound of black pepper. Ile cursed
the loan conipany and offered to take $100
for his land. That mien will never redeemI
his land. He cannot. He simplly gave
that mortgage company $1500, and perhaps
some interest in the future. Poor a:an !

A Tragedy- of Errtors.
Lcxnox, Feb. 5.-The Daily Kerrs to-day

cmTesllwin are believed to be the cir
cu .ane nder whbeh the death of the
Austrian Crown Prince took place: A beau
tiful young Baroness, not tall, but rather
dark, and of a hively disposition arrived at
Meyerling and took up her quarters at the
gameikeeper's house, not far from the castle.
No one knew of her being there except the
gamekeeper and his wife. At midnight
when the Crown Prince had bidden his
'guests good night he went to see her and
had been with her about an hour when the
forester, already equipped for the morning's
.chase, went to the house to ask the game
keeper about details of instruictions on some
He knocked loudly at the (door and a win
dow opened and a man jumped out and ran
away. The forester aimed and tired. The
fugictive fell, and when the forester walked
up to him he recognized the Crown Prince,
who had fainted. The shot had gone imto
his shoulder. The forester called for help,
and with another man carried him into the
gamekeeper's house. The baroness taking
him to be dead, turned to her traveling bag,
took something out, and before she had
been noticed fell dead on the tloor.
Then the Crown Prince came to and wa.s
taken by his u'n orders to the castlc, where
his valet began to ask anxious <pestions.
The Crown Prince said impatiently: "I
have fallen and my nose is bleeding. Go
away. I wish to be alone."
The valet went out reluctantly, and the
Crown Prince locked the door and commit
ted suicide before a mirror. The Baroness
was buried on Thursday in the convent
where all her family are interred.

W. J. Whippcr, the negro~, who in the

Probate for Becaufort county, is nowr in jail.
He has been imprisoned ostensibly for con
tempt of court, in refusing to deliver to his
rsaccessor in office, the books and records of
the Probate Court. He has ssued a lon'z
winded proclamation to his dusky party in
which he claims that his successor was not
legally elected, and therefore has no right to
the books and records of the office. But it
is stated frot B'eaufort that the truth is he
Las been consistently at the Republican
game of st- aling. The books and records
arc said to be in a shocking state, showing
that he has systematically robbed every estate
that has been brought into his court. His
irregularities, outrages and stealings are of
great miagnitude, and must involve him in
numerous prosecutions. Hence his wil
ingness to go to jail under the charge of
contempt, rather than submit, to the expos
ure of his crimes, and meet the punishment
ho knows to be inevitable.

The alarming disease of this
country is nervous debility and
prostration. It goes under
many names but it is essen
tially the same complaint.
Hospitals and private institu
tions for nervous padients are
crowded. The averac of life
in the United States) is de
creasing every year. Sudden
deaths from nervous collapse
among our business, profess
ional and public men are so
frequent as scarcely to excite
remark. The majority of sui
cides, committed w :hout ap
parent reason, or under so-:alled
"depression of spirits," are
really prompted by nervous
prostration, which is a fruitful
source of insanity and crime
with all their grief and horror.
These facts are startling.
They threaten the very life of
the nation. They assail the
springs of its power and pros
perity. They wreck manhood's
streingth and woman's useful
ness and beauty.
Every one should know the
causes. What are they? The
answer is easy and terribly
plain: Our vicious personal
habits; our careless and lawless
eating and drinking; the in
tense mental and physical strain
arising from our mad race after
money, position and influence;
the fears and struggles of pov
erty; the use of narcotics and
stimulants; our fashion of
turning day into night and
night into day; nd, briefly,
our. desperate 'llingness to
pay any price for an hour's
pleasure or success. So we
burn life's candle at both ends
and fill the lunatic asylums
and the graveyards.
The disease from which we
suffer and die is, in plain Eng
lish, Nervous Dvspepsia, as it
is seated in the Nerves and in
the organs of Digestion, Assim
ilation and Nutrition. Healthy
digestion being impeded or des
troyed, the whole body, nerves
included, is litcrally starved;
even when there is no emaci
ation to tell the sad story.
Nervous prostrtation sends
out its warnings :-headache

dull heaviness or achingr at th~e
base of the bin; wkfulness;

The remedy is a total aban

toms which cause the disease
in each individual case, and the
use of Shaker Extract of Roots
(Seiger's Syrup) to cure the
mischief alreadly done. This
great remedy, prepared by the
~Shaker Community of Mt. Leb
anon, N. Y., is especially adapt
ed to eradicaite N'ervous Dys
pepsia. To do this it acts
directly and gently but power
fully upon the disordered stom
ach, liver and kidneys, restor
ing their tone and vigor, pro
moting the secretion of bile, ex
pelling waste matters from the
syteo~nd purifying the blood.

Shaker Extract(Seigep's Syrup)
acts as a safe and wholesome
anodyne without the slghtest
narcotic effect, and then Teaves

It is safe to say more nerv

of life and labor than by any
