he will make a good president, but a

JUSGE ALDRICU AGAINl.
The Columbiacarrespondent -of the
2Kews and Coure interviewed Judge
Aldrich in Columbia last Saturday
with reference to the reports that he
was drank in Sumter, when he held
enurt there last year, and as to the
isport of his resignation. Here is the
rzesult of the interview:
The Judge was lookingas well as he has
- donae for years, althoug he was suffering
from -the effects of a falseveral months
ago, cused by a misstep while descending
the stp of a hotel in Sumter.
'~pyn to the inquiry as to his reported
heinton, Judge Aldrich said that imme
diately after his re-election three years ago
-hebhd told the membersf hs famlythat
he would not again be a candidate for the
Bench,:pud that he had since infor-mcd va
*rious friends, of his determination. This
was thoroughly understdod, he thought, by
the gentlemen:who would be candidates for
- the position upon his retirement. He was
now 7-years old, and did not fmnd it pleas
ant to spend so much time away from home.
He had never, however, entertained or ex
pressed the intention of resigning his of
fice. His terma would not las.ta year longer.
-.and he felt able to perform his duties until
the close of that period. The LegialIature
next December would choose his successor.
Judge Aldrich referred pith some amuse
ment to the reports of his inability to tran
mact the business which came before him.
He had not recently, he said, lost an hour
-out of court,~ad thought that in the dis
patch of business be had been maintaining
-his previous record.
In the course of further conversation
Judge Aldrich said that some of his friends
-had asked him what coursie he intended to
take in reference to the accusations brought
against him by one or two newspapers, to
the effect that he had takcn too much to
drink at the Sumter court, and that he
had-replied that,hokhling the offce which he
did, and having, the life- record which he
possessed, he was- willing to let these
charges go to the people for s'hat thxey were
worth, and. let them judge,. with their
kniowledge of the characters oo. aocusers
and accused. He was unable to conceive of
any foundation for these stories except that
it was his habit,.about 1 o'clock in the day,
to take a rec - of about five minutes for
she purps takmng a luncheon, which,
as was customuary, included a glass of toddy.
-He held his sessions fromn 10 A--M. to 4 P.
x., and he found. that he worked better
when he broke this long perod- of fasting.
.He had taken this. refreshment in Sumter
'as he had done in Charleston and other
.places without conce alment. He supposed
that his taking a toddy had shocked some
total ab. tainer.
. Two weeks ago we published an
article from the Sumter Watchman,
of which the following is a part:
noen .Tnhe Aldrich last presided in
Sumter, his conduct gave great offense to
the people in more ways than one. What z
this conduct was, it is- needless to explair'
here. The city was full of people and they
will remember it. So great was the dissat
isfaction that the Tatchman and oidhron <
was called upon to suppress communica
tions strongly censuring His Honor. This
was not a transient feeling, for at the next
term of court the grand jury proposed to in
corporate in its presentment the grounds of
complaint and recommend a remedy. This
came to the ears of Judge Pressley, then
presiding, and he, after vainly endeavoring, t
by the use of of authority and persuasion,
to prevail upon the grand jury to forego
their intention, finally declared that, to his
certain knowledge, the resignation of Judge fi
Aldrich had been written. and was in the t
hands of the proper parties; and that there
fore the proposed presentment could effect
nothing. Upon hearing this the grand
jury very gladly said nothing. O
this resignation, if it ever existed,
and the character of Judge Pressley
precludes the idea that it never did, ::rti
ing has since been heard.
The two do not agree. Judge
Aldrich, Judge Pressley, or the Sum
ter Wakhrman is in error. Which?

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 ? 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, but quite. as fatal lathe germs
of those maladies, whieh sweep men
into eternity by thousands without
warting in the times, of great epi
demics. But it is a mercy that, if
we are watchful, we can- tell when
we are threatened. The following
are among the symptoms, yet they
do not always necessarily appear m
the same order, nor are 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
not eat enough, and occasionally no
appetite at all; dullness and slug
gishness 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; 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
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 puz
zles them. It is the commonest of
ailments 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 l rally
starved, even when there is nc
emaciation to tell the sad story.
Experienco has shown that thereir
put one remedy that can certainly
cure this disease in all its stages,
namely, Shaker Extract of Roots or
Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. If
never fails but. nevertheless, no time
should be lost in trying other so
called remedies. for they will do no
good. Get this great vegetable

Mr. Thontaa P. Evans, of the firm
of Evans & Bro., Merchants, Horn
town. Accomack Co., Va., writes
that he had been sick with digestive
disorders for many years and had
tried many physicians and medi
ines without benefit. He began to
use Shaker Extract of Boots or Sei
gel's Syrup about the lst of Jan.
1887, and was so much better i
three weeks that he considered him
self practically a well man. He
adds: "I have at this time one bot
tle on hand, and if I could not get
any more I wcould nowt take a Len
dollar ull for it."
