FREE GRADED SCHOOL.
Our reason in saying that we did
not think the time had come for a
free graded school is because we know
it is impossible to have one supported
by public funds, and because we do
not believe there are men enough in
Manning, who will put their hands in
their pockets and say, "Let's have the
school, the free school; collect what is
possible from the public, and we will
make good the deficiency. And let
the school be open alike to all the
children." If we are to have a free
school, we say have one, and not a
half-way one. Let the tax levy be
ten mill,, and then it will be free alike
to all. We claim that a four mill tax
is but a plan to help those able to pay
their own tuition, and of little good
to the poor children. It would be
about all that some people could do
to furnish books and 'eitable clothing
the year round for their children.
Could these also afford to pay half
Not one word that has been said or
written on the subject has refuted a
single g!ument of ours, by showing
that it is practicable to have a free
graded school. We expect, neverthe
less, that the few who meet to vote on
this tax, will vote to impose it, but
that will not give a free graded
school, nor will it, we candidly be

SHERMAN AND "THE FLAG."
How South Carolinians have Upheld the
Honor of the Flag-The Palmetto Flag
at Chapultepec and Mexico-The Great
Barn Burner Taken to Task.
The Centennial Sherman flag inci
dent has by this time passed out of
the minds of those who read about it,
the great Anerican public being noted
for forgetting a sensation of the kind
in less than four days, or -half the
traditional "nine days.'' But it was
recalled yesterday in a peculiar way
by a gentleman who had the honor of
fighting under the Stars and Stripes
on the soil of Mexico, and who was
rather disgusted at the remarks of
Gen. Sherman anent the South Caro
lina troops at the New York Centen
nial celebration. The gentleman is
well known in Charleston. He has
served in several wars, including "the
Rebellion" and the Mexican war, and
in his declining days there is no more
devoted American citizen than he, al
though he was "a rebel." He was
talking with one or two ex-rebels and
Ex-Mexican war veterans when a Re
porter for the Keu-s and Courier, who
is also an ex-rebel of tender years,
happened to join the group.
"The great barn burner and bum
mer chief," said this ancient soldier,
as he pulled out a faded bandana of1
the Jacksonian era and mopped his'
silver beard, "ought to read up a little
of the history of his country. There
are men who fought for the Union }
when Sherman was in Knickerbock
ers. Let me tell you one thing. I
don't know where Sherman was in
the days of '48 and thereabouts, but
I know that when men were wanted j
at the front down in Mexico there was
a regiment of South Carolinians there,
and they did good service, though I
say it who shouldn't. The Palmetto
regiment managed to do some good
service in Mexico, although they
fought under the Palmetto flag. As a
matter of fact, we didn't see the Stars
and Stripes from the time we left
Charleston until we entered the city
of Mexico. I don't exactly know
whose fault it was, if anybody was to
blame, but in those days we didn't
think it necessary for a man to wear a
United States flag on his coat sleeve
to prove his loyalty to his country pro
vided he proved it by fighting. Nor
was it regarded necessary to prove
one's loyalty to the flag by burning
barns, destroying homesteads and
hanging negroes up to the limbs of
trees to make them tell where the
'family silver' was hidden.
"No, the Palmetto regiment n t
tars and Stripes ver
theless they were generally ound at
the front, and that too at times when
other troops who had the Stars and
Stripes were a mile or two in the rear.
Let me give you an incident which
can be verified by the history of the
"As I have already said, the Pal
metto regiment, which served through
that war, didn't carry the Stars and
Stripes. Exactly why they didn't I
don't know-but they didn't. They
bad a plain Palmetto flag presented to
them ~just before they went to the
front. A~t Chapultepee there was a
hitch somewhere. I don't want to say
who is to blame, but the troops who
were at the front, and who had the
Stars and Stripes with them. Ad

manin odedto Gladden to move
.~~net-the Palmetto-to the
front and to storm the walls. The
order was given and the 'armed mob,'
with the Palmetto flag at its head,
marched up, passed the advance
troswowere lying in the trenches
wit he andars and Stripes, and with
a elada rush captured the fortress
and planted the Palmetto flag on its
batlements. The troops with the
Stars and Stripes came up later. Then
we pushed forward to the City of
Mexico, leaving the Stars and Stripes,
which had come up later, flying over
"The Palmetto regiment were in
advance when the City of Mexico sur
rendered, and I remember well the
incident. Gen. Quitman, who weas
in command, called upon us for the
national colors. We didn't have them.
He was told that they had been left
behind at Chapultepec. I was there
at the time with our old Palmetto flag,
and said to him that the only national
flag we had had been left behind at
Chapultepec. 'Here,' said I, 'is the
Palmetto flag, and I expect it will do
till you can get the national colors.'

herSherman talking about the old
flag because a parcel of boys who
went to New York on a picnic hap
pened not to have a national flag. The
people of South Carolina attempted a
departure in 1861, it is true, but they
have a right to be back in the~Union
which they fought for-and fought
against, it is true-and for which
they have now as great a love and loy
alty-yes, and perhaps a greater
than Sherman or any of his ilk. South
Carolinians fought for the Union in
1776, and in 1812 and 1848, and on
other occasions, and they didn't need
the Stars and Stripes to stir up their
courage, either. They were beaten
in 1861-65, and were men enough to;
own up to it. If their services are
needed to defend the Union, which
their ancestors helped to form, you'll.
find them in the front rank, even
though they don't happen to have the
ational colors pinned to their coats.
The proof of the pudding is always
in the eating. We upheld the nation
ral honor at Fort Moultrie in 1776 and
mexico in 1848, and on a good,

the St d Stripes to keep up our
courage, an reckon if the pinch

BILL ARP ON COW PEAS.
Every Farmer Should Sow Cow Peas
Whenever He has Land to Spare.
If I were an old-fashioned almanac
maker I would fill up the spaces of
three summer months with such ad
vice as, "Sow peas-aw more peas;"
"About this time sow cow peas;" "As
soon as your wheat is harvested, sow
peas upon the laud;" "Follow your
oats with peas;" "Sow peas between
your corn rows when you lay by your
corn;" "Sow lots of peas."
Peas are better than clover, or
grass, or anything, better for the land
and better as a profitable crop. I
have unbounded respect for peas. I
sow about five acres every year for
forage, and they make the best forage
in the world-the best for horses and
mules, and the best for milch cows.
All kinds of stock eat it greedily. I
have seen old-fashioned farmers pull
peavines up by the roots and hang
them on the fence to cure. The com
mon idea is that pea-vine hay is hard
to harvest and hard to cure. This
is a great mistake. Sow them with a
drill or broadcast-say two bushels to
the acre; when the pods are nearly
grown, and the peas are in the dough,
walk right into them with a scythe
blade and cut an acre a day-any
good mower can do it easily, for it is
the sweetest cutting in the world. Let
them lie as they fall for twenty-four
hours; rake into wind-rows, and let
them alone for two days more. If it
rains on them, just let it rain; when
the sun shines again, toss them up and
give them air, and they will cure. I
have had them take several rains, and
lie upon the ground for a week, and
cure all right; plenty of air is all they
want. Put them in the barn and
watch them for a day or so to see if
they are moulding or getting hot; if
they are, then toss them to the other
side of the barn, and the tossing and
airing will bring them all right. I
have never lost a pea-vine crop. But
be sure and cut before the pods get
ripe, or you will lose the leaves. Cut
green, and not a leaf will drop, and
the vines will cure so much easier.
Now for a little philosophy. Pea
vines make a quick and dense shade,
and shade is dame nature's great re
storer. Just as soon as the wheat or
oats are removed, nature sends up the
grass or the weeds right away to shade
the exposed ground, to shield it from
the burning sun. Peas are better than
either, both as shade and food. Shade
plant A canebrake would seem to
ust the land from its dense, lux
uriant growth, but it enriches it. The
shade of a canebrake is impenetrable.
I cleared up an acre of canebrake and
planted it in corn and made 125 bush
els. Brier patches are a dense and
luxuriant growth, and they make the
land rich. Just so with the growth
that always comes in the corners of
the old fences. Remove the fences,
and you have rich, fertile soil. Take
down an old house or barn, and the
soil underneath is equal to a cane
brake. Plant a grape vine by the
veranda, and the roots will run under
the house and feast upon the nitrogen
that the shade has made. Put down;
some old planks between your straw
berry rows, and see how soon the
roots will take refsuge t~xarsa-M
- ni'Zh p As:.1L Even the stones
-e shade that gives nourishment to
plsants. Of course there is no plant
food in a stone or a rock, but see how
vines and trees grow near to stone;
walls and piles of rock. The falling
leaves that cover the ground do more
from their shade to preserve it than
from the plant-food that is in a dead:
leaf. See how quickly potatoes will'
sprout in a dark cellar. Night, dark
night, is the universal restorer of all
vegetation-the generator of plant
Some farmers sow peas and turn
the green crop under. They lose the
hay and do the land no good.
Pea-vine hay is easy to bale, and,
where its value is known brings the
highest price. Two men and one
mule can press forty bales in a day in.
a home made press. Four tons is a~
fair crop on average land, and I have.
sold it at $20 per ton. Then sow peas;

Editor Cunningham Exonerated.
Captain W. L. Jones, the Atlanta
detective, who has been here for sev
eral weeks working up the incendiary
are in the Wolfe building on Russell
street, last week sued out warrants of
irrest against Messrs. H. S. Cunning
ham, editor of the .Spectator, and J.
W. Caston, late foreman of that jour
nal, charging them with being the in
cendiaries. The case was carried
before Trial Justice I. W. Bowman,
who, after a careful and impartial
hearing of the testimony, which was
entirely of a circumstantial character,
there being nothing adduced to con
vect either of the accused with the
fendish act, dismissed the case for
the want of sufficient testimony.
The detective, in his testimony,
said he came here a stranger and
after surveying the field he formulated
ave theories, which for convenience
we will number in the order in which
be said he dismissed them:
First, there were two papers here,
and this theory lead him to suspect
the editor of the Times and Democrat,
but, after investigating this theory a
short time and finding nothing in it,
he dismissed it, and proceeded to take
up theory No. 2, which brought in
the Albrecht boys from the fact that
Mr. Z. M. Wolfe had in a personal
difficulty unfortunately killed their
father. After investigating this theory
he also dismissed it, and took up the
ory No. 3, which caused him to sus
pect Messrs. W. B. Howell and Paul
D. Davis, because they were not on
good terms with Mr. Wolfe. After a
short investigation, this theory was
also abandoned like the other two,
and he proceeded to investigate theory
No. 4, which involved Mr. Z. M.
Wolfe, the owner of the building.
This theory, together with theory No.
5, which involved the gentlemen ar
rested, Messrs. Cunningham and Cas
ton, who occupied the house, he gave
considerable attention to, investigat
ing both theories fully, and finally
settled on Messrs. Cunningham and
Caston as the guilty parties, and had
them arrested, as above stated.
Before persons are arrested and
charged with serious crime as in this
case the proof of their guilt should
be pretty well established, and the
testimony should be at least strong
enough to bind them over on an ex
parte hearing of the case before pro
ceedings are commenced. Otherwise
a great wrong may be done. The
odname of a man is very precious
to him, a 'o.otbe$ .'r ea
by his being charged with crime on
frivolous and insufficient testimony.
We would like to see the fiend who
set this fire caught and punished, but
