WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, I8.
MR. HORTON AND THE CAUSEWAY.
Mr. Hoi ton elsewhere explains the
situation of bad roads and bridges,
and at the same time uses some toler
ably caustic language.
As to our "jumping at conclusions,"
we simply say that had we known the
fact that Mr. Horton was unavoidably
kept from sending in his communica
tion, we would certainly have so stat
ed; but he failing to send in the com
munication, we naturally concluded
that he had decided not to go before
the people in the matter. He knows
us too well to think for a moment
that we would intentionally do him a
wrong. He tells us that he left town
early Monday, expecting to get back
the afternoon of the same day, in time
to send us the communication, but
that he did not get back till late the
next day. How were we to know all
these things? Had he called at our
office Tuesday night, we would have
stopped the press to have made the
correction for him. It was just one
of those unavoidables that do some
times happen, wherein it is hard to
blame any one. So much as a refu
tation of the charges in the first half
of the second paragraph of Mr. Hor
A newspaper has no rights or priv
ileges, more than would belong to any
individual, nor do we claim more; but
a.newspaper is or should be the organ,
the mouthpiece, through which any
good citizen may express his views,
opinions, and grievances. Numerous
complaints were made to us, by some
excellent citizens, of the condition of
things about Pocotaligo, with a re
quest that we call attention to the
same. We told them we would do so.
In our article we stated that we had
not seen the causeway, but gave the
names of two gentlemen wbo had
made complaints, and were willing for
their names to appear. We do not
know what Mr. D. M. Bradham knows
about putting roads and bridges in
good condition, but from the nature
of his business we thought he ought
to know. We gave his opinion on the
question. Mr. T. J. Cole has, to our
knowledge, done some fine road work
in the county, and we gave his views
of the matter. Our opinion is that
we.ought to have good roads, and that
poor roads will damage the business
interests of the town.
Mr. Horton says that we should be
"sure that a position taken, upon
which to predicate a censorious criti
cism, is supported by the facts." And
so do we say. Our position was this:
"Good roads are a necessity. The
unexpected will come, but every effort
possible should be made to keep the
roads passable. -The long continued
roasandssoe excuse fortheir
bad condition, but we want, need,
and must have good roads." We can
niot see anything in that not supported
* by facts.
In aformier article of ours about Mr.
So tt' mule being killed, and in
w'hwe threw blame on the county
commisioners, we said: "We under
stand that on these bridges the boards
are simply laid on the stringers with
eut fastenings of any kind. Had there
-been any fastenings to have held
down the boards the probability is
that the mule would have gotten his
foot out without danger." Are these
false premises on which to base a
criticism? It was the view of Mr.
Sprott whose niule was killed. Mr.
Horton is responsible for the condi
tion of these bridges, and probably
knows best what ought to be done.
If however it is a fact that the failure
to have any fastenings for those
boards was the cause of Mr. Sprott's
mnle's death, then a small expendi
ture of money for this purpose would
probably have saved the county about
$125, what Mr. Sprott claims for his
But we have said enough. It is not
eur purpose to censure Mr. Horton.
He is a gentleman of fine judgment
and strong determination, and has
made a .good county commissioner.
The public, at least a part of it, was
outspoken about the bad condition of
the causeway.. We called public at
tention to the matter. Mr. Horton
sayshe has done all he could do, and
will, as heretofore, use his best efforts
to keep the causeway and bridges in
The New York Fashion Bazar for
April is a most satisfactory fashion
magazine, and especially to those who
have children's wardrobes to superin
tend will it prove invaluable. The
colored fashion supplement is note
worthy for tasteful and elegant spring
costumes. The engravings give eve
ry fashionable style of house and
street gown and spring overgarment.
Altogether there is a perfection
and completeness in this depart
ment which recommend the Fash
ion Bazar to every lady in the
* land. In the literary contents we
notice the commencement of a new
story by Edna Lyall (Miss Bayley) en
titled "A Hardy Norseman," the open

The negroes held a mass meeting
in Raleigh, N. C., last Friday night,
and organized the North Caroliuna
Emigration Association the proposed
object of which is to colonize all the
negroes of that State in Arkansas. A
call was issued for a State convention,
to be held in Raleigh, April 22d, to
fully organize a State association.
Such a proceeding has a business air
Thomas E. Miller, the colored
would-be-congressman from ,he sev
enth district, has written an open let
ter to President Harrison, in which
he denounces McLane, Russel, and
the other Independents in this State,
as unworthy of recognition by the
Republican party, and as being only
office seekers. Miller is right. The
so-called Independents of this State
so far have been men who would do
little credit to any party.
A correspondent writing from
Washington says: Harrison will be
a dead man in less than three months
if the horde of greedy office seekers
do not cease persecuting him. Al
ready his right arm is lamed and his
complexion has the suspicious chalky
white appearance of ill health. But
the crowd still comes marching on,
fairly falling over each other in their
eagerness to reach the ear of the
president. Such a gang was never
before seen in Washington. It was
thought at the beginning of Mr.
Cleveland's administration that the
pressure for office was great, but com
pared with that now going on, it was
as a summer zephyr to an untamed
Dakota blizzard. Every man except
tion, is here clamoring for vindication
in the shape of an appointment to his
old place or to a better one, and in
addition there are thousands of men
who are after getting their first taste
of official life. These last think the
government service needs a liberal in
fusion of new blood, provided, of
course, that they furnish it. Between
them they are making a torment for
Mr. Harrison as great as any that ev
er existed on this earth, and there is
little chance of a change until every
thing worth scrambling for is given
out. In the meantime Mr. Harrison's
worst enemy could not wish him
worse punishment than he is daily

ing to the condition of the roads
across Pocotaligo swamp, under my
jurisdiction, you made mention of the
fat that I had been "interviewed" and
invited to give the public my rveasons
for such a state of affairs; and not
having heard from me concluded,
that I did "not care to go before the
people in the matter."
Had you not been so ready to jump
at conclusions you would have dis
covered, that I was called away, unex-'
pectedly, into the country and did not
return until too late to prepare a re

Ifire to open, on notice so short, call
ing attention to dereliction of duty
by public officials may be the prerog
ative of the "Press," but common
justice would suggest the propriety
of, at least, making sure, that the po
sition taken, upon which to predicate
a censorious criticism, is one support
ed by the facts of the case.
On assuming the duties of my of
fice I was wvell convinced of the utter
futility of any attemnpt to please ev
erybody, and subsequent experience
has only confirmed it. My purpose,
therefore, has ever been to simply
discharge my duties, as they should
arise, for the good of the people at
large; with such inquiry into the mner
its, as an intelligent understanding
After the excessive and long pro
tracted rain-fall began to affect the
causeway north of Manning, and im
pede travel, I secured the services of
~capable workmen and inspected them.
The under timbers were all good; and
the cause of the injury to Mr. Sprott's
mule could not, according to Mr.
Sports, who was driving the mule
when injured, be justly attributable
to carelessness on the part of any one.
He says that he sawe no hole in the
bridge. The defective place, there
fore, must have been a weak part of
the plank, and saturated with water,
gave wvay under the mule, which in
Ithe effort to recover its footing, lifted
through the space opened by the dis
placed covering. Every available
means was used in the effort to secure,
as far as possible, the public against
harm. The workmen carried there
could devise no plan short of bridging
over the parts complained of, and at
very considerable expense. Mr. D.
M. Bradham was present and called
upon to suggest a so'lution to the dif
ficulty. None, however, could be fur
nished short of a bridge. As the only
thing wanted was a little sunshine, to
avoid the heavy expense, I consulted
numerous persons, whose opinions I
valued, and who had been over and
through the obstructions, and lastly
my attorney. All agreed that it was
infinitely best to delay a day or two,
until the rains ceased and then have
the work done. It has now been all
accomplished and did not cost the
county one dollar.
The echo has reached Mr. T. Adams
, who comes out in an elaborate
disclaimer. Mlr. Way may sleep the
sleep of the peace.;, secure from any
design or willingness on my part that
he shall bear any part of my short
comings, either apparent or real. We
generally have enough of our own,
and Mr. Way is doubtless no exception
to the rule. IIe tells us that "no work
can be done fir the waters cover the
whole face of :he earth," yet joins in
a covert onsinuation that he, at least,
was not to blame. It is well enough
.'m)etimes to blow our own horn, for
then as the old saying sayeth, "it ver
ily shall be blowed." Mr. Way's terri
tory is comparatively high to this in
question, and not one tenth, perhaps,
the travel of this thoroughfare-how
must be the water then backed out
abnormally, by the railroad embank
ment. Mr. T. J. Cole thinks it could
have been fixed too! May not the
shadows of departed glory obstruct
his vision and render his testimony
that of an "interested witness."
I have endeavored fully and fear
lessly to discharge the trust commit
ted to my keeping by the people, and'
shall continue to do so to the end of
my term, without regard to what this
or that cracker may say.

Twenty Pieces of Bone.
My little niece, left me by her moth
er, had one of the worst cases of
white swelling I ever saw. More than
twenty pieces of bone came out of
her leg, one piece being about the
size of the small end of a walking
cane, and nearly three inches long.
The hole left by taking these pieces
out was as large as a good sized wal
nut. She was not able to walk a step
for eight months, and was afterwards
compelled to use crutches for nearly
a year. The doctors said there was
no cure, and advised amputation of f
the limb. This I would not consent
to, but put her to taking Swift's Spe

treatment. It has cured her sound
and well, and I shall never grow
weary of speaking its praise.

nothing for me. One of my neigh

A Woman from Austria.
Near he 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 employe," she says,
"in the work of a large farm
house. Overwork brought eon
si ;" headache, followed by a
denthly 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
finaF.y 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 put on
their green once more. Then I
happened to get one of the Sei
gel pamphlets. I read it, and
m7 dear mother bought me a
bottle of SEIGEL's SYRUP,
(Shaker Extract of Roots)
which I took exactly according
to directions, and I had not
taken the whole of it before I
felt a change for the better. My
lIst 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 cannot
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 niks<n-nnnnl our
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
hi '' I 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 a.re
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.
Safferers from oout who were
confined to their bes 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 rheumatic pains,
and had to hav-e 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 he- life. and nlow 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. MxHa Kus.
