Important Announcement of the Young
Men's Clristiau Association.
S CHARvLESTON, S. C. Oct. 1st, 1889.
At the State convention of the Young
Men's Christian Association, held at
Greenville, S. C., last April, it was re
solved to divide the Associations of
S. C. into four districts, the respective
headquarters of each to be located in
Charleston, Columbia, Newberry, and
Greenville. The object of this move
ment is to bring the Associations of
the State into closer contact and sym
pathy, through the close oversight
and systematic visitation of a District
Committe, all of which work is sup
plementary to the State work and is
intended to aid it.
Upon invitation from the Walter
boro Association, the committee has
decided to hold the first Convention
of this District at that place, and the
time agreed upon is November. 22-24.
Delegates will be entertained during
the sessions of the convention by the
friends of the Walterboro Association.
: Topics and speakers, with pro
gramme and specific particulars will
be announced in a circular, which we
hope to issue not later than Novem
ber 5th. It is expected that reduced
rates can be secured on the railroads.
The territory of the district is not
large and the expenses of attendance
will not be great, so me are therefore,
encouraged to look for large delega
tions, even from small Associations;
and it should be remembered, that
the larger the number of delegates,
the greater the benefit that will ac
crue to each Association.
The District Convention will be
conducted similarly to the State Con
- v4 ion, but in the selection of topics
and in all the discussions, special at
tention will be devoted to the work
in small towns. We will endeavor to
secure good speakers for the occasion.
The Charleston District embraces
the counties of Charleston, Berkeley,
Georgetown, Horry, Williamsburg,
Colleton, Clarendon, Orangeburg,
Aiken, Barnwell, Hampton, and Bean
fort. The following Associations
have been reported to us: Charleston
Citadel Academy, Lake City, Orange
burg, Walterboro, Allendale, Centre
ville, and Cottageville. If others ex
ist, we hope they will be reported to
us at once.
All pastors and Christian young
men in localities where no Association
exists, are heartily invited to attend
and contribute their presence and
encouragement towards making the
convention a success.
We trust that 'every -Association
will join in pleading at a throne of
grace, that the convention may be in
teresting and profitable; but, above
all, that it may be accompanied with
great spiritual power, and that to all
who attend, there may be given a re
newed and earnest desire to labor
more zcalously for the salvation of
our young men. Sincerely yours,

The Queen Regent of Spain is sim

-laxing the~rigid etiquette of the Span
ihcourt. Formerly it was impossi
ble to smoke before the Queen. At a
recent court dinner, however, she or
dered cigars to be produced. Every
b.ody was astonished. and no one
seemed inclined to take the first step.
The officer of State next the Queen
h.eld the silver basket containing the
eigaLrs, but did not know what to do
wvith them. Finally the Queen took
.one, lighted it, and said: "Pass around
.thc cigars, gentlemen."
The accumulation of wealth in the
liands of a few, and the increasing
poverty of the multitude is ominous.
By such conditions many nations have
perished. Egypt fell when three per
cent. of her population owned nine
ty-fve per cent. of her wealth. Baby
lon went down when two per cent. of
her people owned all the land. Per
sia's glory departed when one per
cent, of her people owned all the
land. When Rome fell 1800 men
owned the known world. 'What is
our case? In 1830 the capitalist of
this country owned thirty per cent. of
the national wealth; in 1840, thirty
seven per cent.; in 1850, forty-five per
eent.; in 1860, fifty-seven per cent.; in
*1870, sixty-five per cent.; in 1880, sev
enty per cent.; and in 1890 they will
.own not less than eighty per cent. c f
the wealth of the country.

Why They Married.
In an old book written by a West
ern Congressman, a contemporary of
Clay and Webster, containing remi
niscences of his times, a story is told
of one of his friends, a farmer in Ken
tucky named Payne, who had six
daughters none of whom was blessed
with beauty. The Congressman knew
them in their homely youth, and when
he returned a few years later, found
them all married to good influential
men. So great was his surprise that
he ventured to ask their father why
they all had been so sought when oth
er girls remained neglected. The old
"Yes, and you may say when they
had neither dower nor good looks.
Well, I'll tell you. When I want my
cattle to eat buckwheat stubble in
stead of grass I don't drive them into
that field. I fence it off from them!
They are so contrary that they always
want the things they can't get. They
break down the fence, I drive them
'out and put it up. By the time they
fight for it once or twice they think.
they like the stubble.
"Well, I saw my girls weren't the
most attractive kind, and-I fenced
them in !
"You never found them in hotels
dancin' or keepin' stalls at county
fairs. Young men to know then had
to come to their father's house. When
the neighbors saw how the Payne
girls were kept apart from the crowd
they thought their value must be high.
Young men came to break down the
fence. They like to break down
"The story was coarsely told, per
haps," adds the old narrator. "But

A Catholic Priest Sentenced to be Hanged
for a Nameless Crime.
RBLEuG, October 5.-The Catholic
priest, Father Boyle, was convicted in
the Wake Superior Court to-night, of
the charge of criminal assault on
Miss Whitaker. The jury had the
case four hours and did not bring in
a verdict till midnight. The crime of
which Boyle is convicted 'was com
mitted last May. He was sentenced
to be hanged on November 29.
He made a short statement to the
court, and bitterly denounced sevepal
gentlei:en who had acted as counsel
for the prosecution. He was cool and
composed to an astounding degree,
and smiled immediately after the sen
tence was pronounced.
THE GREATEST ANTI-PERIODIC ~
Known to the medical profession is quinine,
the base of which is the Calisaya bark of
commerce. This bark is gathered by the
natives of South American countries and
exported to all paits of the-world for the
manufacture of quinine. "The servant is
not greater than his master," and it stands
to reason that the extract has not the cura
tive powers of the original. There is no
more effective remedy for malarial disorders
known to the world than Dr. Westnore
land's Cahsaya Tonic, which contains a suf
ficiency of the purest bark, and all disor
ders of the system arising from a diseased
liver readily succumb to its influence. This

The Pension Fund Exhausted.
The State has not saved much by
making stricter rules for the allow
ance of pensions and decreasing the
payments. The number of applica
tions approved and pensioners paid
during the fiscal year just closed was
1,952, only 73 less than last year un
der the old law. The appropriation
of $50,000 was exhausted by the pay
ment to each pensioner of $2.40 in
September instead of $3, the sum al

"but you never stop talking about it."
A balloon which went up from a
ircus near Montgomery several years
ago sailed away eight or ten miles
and came down in a field where some
negroes were plowing. Terrified at
the spectacle of a chariot coming
down from heaven, they verily be
lieved that the last great day had
come, and remembering all their short
comings fled in terror at the approach
of the awful judge.
One grayheaded and rheumatic old
negro was unable to get away. He
could follow the plow but could not
run, and the chariot came down upon
him with terrible swiftness. In that
awful moment his whole life rushed
upon him, he thought of all the petty
sins he had committed, and the ghosts
of a hundred chickens seemed to rise
up in judgment against~him. But in
that desperate emergency his mind
did 'not desert him, and remembering
that politeness always counted with
his earthly master, he quickly decid
ed to greet the great Lord of heaven
and earth in becoming style. As the
mronaut touahed the earth and began
to untangle himself from the meshes
about his car, the old darkey with an
air of profound obesiance removed
the wool hat from his shiny pate,
bowed low, and said with pious
"'Moi-nin' Mars Jesus, how you lef'

Mrs. Cleveland in Marble.
~WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.-A beautiful
white marble bust of Mrs. Cleveland,
upon a pedestal of black and white
marble, is at present occupying a cor
ner of Mrs. Wilson's drawing room.
It was left in the ex-marshal's charge
when Mr. Ceveland went to New
York. The bust is life-size, and is the
work of G. Seank-i, Genoa, and bears
date 1886. It was made from impres
sions taken when, as Miss Folsom, she
travelled in Europe. The marble rep
resents the head and shoulders, show
ing the chest midway. The hair is
dressed in the style that is now famil
iar to the public as that wcrn in the
photographs extant of this popular
lady, in a coil on the top of the head.
The features are idealized, and the
form is slight. The drapery is a
knitted undergarment made with
square opening at the neck, edged
with Hamburg trimming, and a knit
ted shawl falling frona the shoulders
in a roll forms the edge of the bust.
The statuary will be sent to Mr. and
Mrs. Cleveland as soon as they are lo
ated in their Madison avenue house,
near 69th' street, New York city.
$18 cash will buy a beautiful new
Singer sewing machine, with all the
iatest attachments and improvements.

reputation for health this season. The doc

INHERITED BLOOD POISON.
How many people there are whose distress
from sores, aches, pains and eruptive ten
dencies are due to inherited blood poison.
Bad blood passes from parent to child, and
it therefore is the duty of husband and wife
to keep their blood pure. This is easily
accomplished by a timely use of B. B. B.
(Botanic Blood Balm). Send to Blood Balm
Co., Atlanta, for book of most convincing
James Hill, Atlanta, Ga., writes: "My
two sons were afflicted with blood poison,
which doctors said was hereditary. They
both broke out in sores and eruptions which
B. B. B. promptly controlled and finally
Mrs. S. M. Williams, Sandy, Texas, writes:
"My three poor afflicted children, who in
herited blood poison, have improved rapidly
after a use of B. B. B. It is a Godsend."
J. R. Wilson, Glen Alpine Station, N. C.,
Feb. 13, 1885, writes: "Bone and blood
poison forced me to have my leg amputated,
and on the stump there came a large ulcer,
which grew worse every day until doctors
gave me up to die. I only weighed 120
pounds when I began to take B. -B. B, and
12 bottles increased my weight to 180 pounds
and made me sound and well. I never knew
what good health was before."

The negroes seem to think that the Farm

them when asked by a merchant of this

that the Alliance had raised the price of
cotton and lowered the price of meat.
