The competition of modern life is
so fiercethat all must keep a quick

It requires vigilance, courage, and
work to enforce good laws as it does
to secure their enactment. A people
who are too stolid or too cowardly or
too indolent to see that the laws are
enforced deserve the abuses that they
will surely have to bear. Let every
citizen of our great courtry resolve
himself into a committee of one to

Girls and Their Photographs.
Learn to say no when asked for
your photograph by some one not es
pecially dear to you. There is in
that little word much that will pro
tect you from e'vil tongues. Learn
to thinkthat your face is too sacred
to decorate the apartment of Tom,
Dick, or Harry, no matter if each one
of the three is one of the pleasantest
fellows in the world. When the sun
imprinted in black and white, just
how sweet and how dainty you look,
it did not mean that the picture
should have incense in the shape of
tobacco smoke, or dubious praise in
the form of a discussion of your
points rendered to it. Give away
your picture with discretion. Re
member that some day will 'come
along Prince Charming, who will
have a right, the right owned by the
master of the heart, to ask for the
counterfeit presentment of yourself
after he knows that he is going to
have the real girl for his own. Think
how mortified you would be if
he should discover that the giving
away of your photograph has been
almost as general as the invitations to
your New Year's party. Think how
he will feel if he sees your face look
ing over the mantel-shelf in Dick's
room-Dick whom he knows to be a
braggart, and a man 'for whom he
has the utmost contempt! Then just
learn to say no. Don't display your
photographs to your men friends, and
you will not have this unpleasant task;
but if you should do it, and have not
the courage to say the little nmonosyl
lable, be wise and refer them to

Domestic Service in the South.
There are are too many low-grade
cooks, dirty nurses and lazy house I
girls. They have demoralized the:
better class of negro servants to be I
found here before the war, and at
that time one of the features of South
ern households. Domestic service
has been dragged down to the level
of the rough plantation hands, who!
pour into the cities, and who are
ready to begin cooking for a family
without having ever seen a stove in
their lives. They work at a place a
month and then leave it for another,
and the domestic history of most fam
ilies in the South to-day is a steady
succession of incompetent negro ser
vants. We are suffering on the ser
vant~ question as much as the people
of New England. They from a lack
of domestics, we from an excess,
which has thoroughly demoralized all
and dragged the good down to the
level of the worst. If we could ship
annually some 10,000 or even 100,000
negro servants Nortb it would be bet
ter for all hands. Perhaps our North
ern friends could make something out
of them,. and we would certainly im
prove domestic service here with few
er, but better cooks, nurses, and
house-girls.-.Yew Orleans Tines-Dem
MT. EDITOR:-I am not in a very
self-congratulatory mood to-night, but
since you have made it obligatory for
me to write you an article for the
Tnnrs, I raise no objection however
adverse the surrounding circum-I
stances. A very christian-like rule of
life, said to be a Persian proverb,
"I expect to pass through this world
but once. Any good thing I can do
or any kindness I can show to any
fellow human being, let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it, for I
shall not pass this way again."
I heard Rev. H. M. Mood preach a
sermon a few months ago, in which
he asserted that the young man who
said "he never intended to marry"
was on the way to destruction. The
next day while out shopping, I was
waited on by a clerk-a young bach
elor, conscientious in all of his walks
in life, who seemed considerably im
pressed with Mr. Mood's assertion.
His salary would not support a
wife. To marry a girl to-day and
send her in the kitchen to-morrow
was unpardonable. He had about
resolved until he heard Mr. Mood
"never to marry." Corroborating Mr.
Mood's sermon, I advised him to go
ahead and marry a good, healthy, lov
ing girl; work hard and get a home of
his own and he would make a better
citizen and his wife, if wife she be,
would help him to double every dol
lar he made. A few days after he in
vested in a handsome little cottage,
and at this writing he is endeavoring
to convince one of Manning's charm-,
ing young school-marms that a "wo
man that says she never expects to
marry" is on the way to destruction.
So much for Mr. Mood's sermon. Yes,
and some people are inclined to sneer
at the influence of woman 'for good.
Woman, they assert, is a destroyer,
not an upbuilder. This is an old
fault. It is said that Demos
thenes once declared one wo
man- could destroy in an hour that
which jaould take a staesrasatort
yars to build~m iinilined to thinJk
it was not Demosthenes who uttere:l
the calumny, but Socrates, after a
family tiff with Zantippe. But how
ever that may be, you will find cynics
to-day, who, whenever a man falters
and falls, whenever he rolls in the
ditch a drunken brute, whenever a
reputedly honest man is discovered to
be a defaulter, will cry: "Ah well,
there is a woman at the bottom of it."'
But I assert that there never was a
great man, great in goodness, in noble,
pure deeds, but owed much of his in-i
spirationi to a good woman. When I
see a young man holding.himself pure
amid temptations of vice, a young
man battling bravely with difficulty,
slinging aside every bribe of gainful
iniquity, resolved to win and wear the
crown of a stainless manhoo~d, I say:
"There's a woman in it." A mothers
whose lips still keeps bis lips clean; a
sister, whom he honors, and would
not for worlds cause to blush or weep;
or it may be a nearer one still and a
dearer one, whom he hopes some dayI
to call by the hogopred name of wife;1
but the woman, be she who she may,
is the guiding star of that young'
man's life. MA.

To Editor Manning Times:-Abou t
our present chief executive, Governor
John Peter Richardson, there are sev
eral coincidences which are not only!
interesting, but singular.
His father, who was also named
John Peter Richardson, was Governor
of South Carolina from 184:0 to 1842;
this is the only instance, I believe, in
the history of our State, where two
Governors have borne exactly the same
name. The Governor who preceded
the first John Peter Richardson was
B. K. Henegan, who was not elected
to that office, but was only filling out
an unexpired term; the Governor who
preceded the second John Peter Rich
ardson was John C. Sheppard, who
like Henegan was not elected to the:
office, but was also filling out an un
expired term. The Lieutenant Gov
ernor under the first John Peter Rich-:
ardson was an up-countryman, Col.
W. K. Clowney, of Union, whose first
name was William. The Liuenn
Governor under the second John Pe-.
ter Richardson, is also an up-country
man, Dr. W. L. Mauldin, of Green
ville, whose first name is also William
We see, then, that South Carolina
numbers among her chief executives,
two men, father and son, whose names
are exactly the same; the Governors
who preceded both of them were not
elected to that office, but were only
filling unexpired terms; the Lieuten-I
ant Governors under both came from'
the up-country, and the first name of
both the Lieutenant Governors w as
and is William. Probably we will
not meet with so marny coincidences
about the Governor of any other
Southern State. Do not these coin
idences go to prove the truth of the
proverb, "History repeats itself?''

CHARLESTON, S. C., Jan. 3.- The exodus
of negroes from North and South Carolina

on their way to the South-west. They are
all emigrants, and came from North Caro
Within the past week over four thousand
negroes have passed through Charleston, on
their way to Florida, Alabama and South
Georgia. Many of these people are accom

There is annually a pilgrimage of abont
500 negro laborers who ale hired in North
Carolina to work on the turpentine farms in
Florida. These generally return home in
December, spend the holidays at home, and
return South in January. This year,'how
ever, the exodus amounts to a wholesal emi
gration, many of the laborers being accom
panied by their families. The emigrants
are chiefly from North Carolina and the
eastern part of South Carolina. They are
going South at the rate of one thousand a
The Barnwell massacre will probably in

A Scheme to Secure Laborers and Passen
gers for the Railroads.
BiRINOHAM, ALA., Dec. 29.-Hundreds
of negroes are leaving this region for Miss
issippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana. The sud
den exodus is largely due to the efforts of a
few intelligent colored men, who are sup
posed to be the paid agents of planters in
the Mississippi bottoms or of a railroad com
pany. These men mix among the ignorant
negro laborers and distribute the following
A CHANCE FOR THE' NEGRO.
A land which he will one day own and
govern. Get away from oppression and go
where you will be free.
To Colored Workingmen: In the States
of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana
there are thousands of acres of rich lands
still unoccupied. There you can secure
homes cheap and make a living with but
little work. But better still, our race is now
in the majority in many sections of those
States, and the time is coming when we will
outnumber the whites there fifty to one.
Then we will drive them out and take pos
session of their property. The colored race
will in a few years own and govern these
States. Even now we are getting ready to
throw off the yoke of our oppressors, and
the great day of perfect freedom for the ne
gro is near at hand. Leave this locality,
where you are mistreated and denied your
civil rights by the whites. Go away from
communities where men of your race are
living and shot like dogs by %hite men, and
go where you will soon become one of the
owners and rulers of the land.
These circulars bear no signature, and it
is doubtless only a scheme to secure labor
ers for Southern plantations and passengers
for the railroads, but many ignorant negroes
believe every word of it, and are leaving as
fast as they can get money enough to pur
Eleven Carloads of Negroes En Route to
Eleven carloads of negro emigr-ants,
numbering about 2,000, stopped in Char.
lotte a little while yesterday. ,-The larger
portion of them were from. Wayne, Pitt,
and Lenoirgunties. They were on their
way Soth to'-different locations. This
crowd of negroes will be divided among the
States of Mississippi, Louisiana, Texa's, and
Alabama. Some of them said that the in
ducement offered is a farm to rent, the land
lords agreeing to furnish tenants with sup
plies for half the year. Others said that
they did not know what they would do un
til they arrived at their destination, and
that they were under obligations to the
agents to wvork out their passage, after which
they will look out for themnselves. Many
seemned not to know why they were going.
One fellow said that he had been on the
way more than a week and was getting tired
and hungry. The Chr-onicle reporter looked
into one of the cars as the agent in charge
was carrying a large basket of bread through
the car and distributing loaves among the
families. The agent told the reporter that

The Country Correspondent.
Of all the aspirants for literary fame the
country correspondent perhaps has a better
opportunity for gaining the goal of his am
bition than many more pretentious writers
who live more and have their being in the
literary centers. of the country. The met
ropolitan paper has little to do with the rural
writer in a direct way, but sometimes ow-es
much to him indirectly. It is that class of
publications known as "country papers'
that encourage the efforts of the "country
correspondent." Papers of this type sel
dom circulate outside of the town and coun
ty in which they are published.
Their subscription lists depend as much
if not more upon direct and indirect puffang
than uporr genuine news. Country papers
frequently have plenty of space, and contri
butions of a local nature are nearly always
welcome, particularly when they consist of
brief mention of local happenings in an
adjoining neighborhood. Much of a coun
try paper's strength and success depends
upon the list of correspondents it can pre
sent. The editor usually arr-anges with a
young lawyer, a doctor, school-teacher, or
some bright young man to send in the items
of news occurring each week. Seldom in
deed is there any compensation beyond a
copy of the paper, a good commission on
subscriptions, and perhaps a small card call
ing attention to the fact that Dr. Spikes is
the only physician in Brushtown.- But if
the correspondent does not get a princely
salary, he receives enongh glory to create
envy within the heart of a king. He is
nearly always well-known in the neighbor
hood in which he is located, and the people
in the surrounding country come to look
upon Dr. Spikes as possessed with all the
knowledge worth knowing. He goes to all
the picnics and barbecues and enjoys the
distinction of having all the girls desper
ately in love with him, because he mention
ed their names at some period in the remote
past. Fond mothers look upon the country
correspondent with great respect, for in their
eyes a newspaper rep~resentative is a grand
personage. The country beaux all thorough
ly despise the correspondent, because he is
held in such high esteem by the ladies.
Complacently the object of their contempt
turns up at every church social or public en
tertainment, and proceeds to help himself
er thinks of asking him to pay for refresh
ments. They one and all want to see the
affair in the paper, and it would never do
to win the disfavor of the :orrespondent.
As is frequently the case, the paper he rep
resents is the only one taken in the neigh
borhood, and what it says is the law and
gospel of the surrounding country. In
cases of this kind the country correspond
ent lives in a continual whirl of fame and
glory. Nothing the land can afford is too
good for his epicurean taste. They all con
isult him for enlightenment upon all possi
ble subjects. The correspondent is contin
ually reminded of his imiportance in a
thousand different ways. How many edit
ors, poets, story-writers, and, in fact, writers
of any description, enjoy a hearty personal
honiaae like that bestowed on the average
country correspondent ? Few indeed. It
is true that he frequently writes bad En
glish, spells poorly, gets his proper names
terribly twisted, and rarely sends in an item
of any interest outside of the neighborhood
in which it was written. That makes little
difference in the fame enjoyed by the coun
try correspondent, for nobody but the editor
and printer--poor martyrs-know anything
about these slight irregularities. Sometimes
the correspondent sends in an iteii that is
of considerable importance in the estima
tion of larger papers. It makes its appear
ance among the Brushtown happenings, is
devoured by the exchange man's scissors,
and, lo and behold, the fact of a fearful
crime at Brushtown is proclaimed to the
world. The country correspondent was the
first to make the facts known, and to him
all credit is due. It is in this way that the
rural scribbler frequently aids the in-tro
politan paper. The country correspondent
has come to stay. Long may he live to en
joy the glory that is upon him so freely be
stowed.--Albert Sidney Gregg i the Jomiu-ilist.

What is Scrofula
It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu
lating in the glands of the neck, produces un.*
sightly iumpqor swellings; which causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which
developes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness; which is the origin
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to " humors."
It is a more formidable enemy than consumption
or cancer alone, for sorofula combines the wrorst
possibie ieatures of both. Being the most ancient,
It is the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons are entirely free from It.
How can it be curedi By taine' Mood's Sarsa
parila, which, by the cures It has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all affections of the blood
Hood's Sarsaparila is unequalled, and some of the
cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofuta in any of its various forms,
Ibe sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trIal.

A SERVICE.UnL Sciool B. .-One of
the prettiest and most durable school
bags is made of heavy cotton canvas,
the material used for awnings. The
wide red or blue striped looks best.
Much labor can be expended on these
by working fancy stitches with bright
worsted, where the sripes join, but
for ordinary use the bright stripes are
pretty enough without that extra work.
A bag of meditun size will require a
piece thirty-one inches long and fif
teen wide. Cut the end in a deep
point, to form the gap, fold the re
mainder together, and cut the lower
corners rounding. Cut two pieces
two and one half inches wide, and
the depth of the bag when folded,
round the corners on one end and sew
then on the sides to form the bag.
Stitch a piece of braid flat on the flap,
and two pieces together to make a
stout handle, the length of which will
depend on whether it is for a boy or
girl. Wide striped bed ticking would
answer just as well as the canvas.

clean glass bottles and fit a cork tight

china doll's head and fasten on each
cork. A cloak or shawl is fastened
around its neck, and a little cap on
its head. The style of dress can be
very elaborate or quite plain. Secure
the skirt around the neck of the bot

hoecakes, and when done broke up
fine and added one large onion sliced
up fine and fried, a lump of butter,
pepper and salt to taste, and enough
milk or water to make a little soft.
Stuffed and then sewed up the cavity.
Placed in a pan with slices of salt
pork laid on the most prominent
parts. We did not sprinkle ours with
flour, although this may be done.
Poured three pints of water in the pan,
and placed in a moderately heated
stove. Frequently while cooking
basting it so as to keel) it moist. If
the turkey is fat it will not need any
lard. The breast should be the last
part browned. A tur':ey cooked in
this way is much more juicy than
when parboiled and then roasted
From the way ours was enjoyed we
think it worth trying.
A NIcE MIINcE PIE.-The Philadel
phia Tines gives the following recipe
for making mince pies: Pthit into a
vessel two ounces of currants, three
ounces of Malaga raisins, one ounce
of finely chopped citron, two ounces
of well chopped, cold, boiled beef,
and two ounces of beef suet, also
chopped very fine. Mix the whole
well together for five minutes, then
add one ounce of powdered sugar, a
salt spoonful of salt, one drachm of
ground allspice, half a drachm of
ground cinnamon, and mix together
for one minute. Peel, core, and chop
up very line three large, sound apples,
add them to the preparation, then
pour in half a gill each of brandy and
sherry wine, mixing again for three
minutes. Take half a pound of pie
paste, cut out a piece of three ounces,
roll it round shaped, ten inches in
diameter, and lightly butter a pie
plate nine and a half inches in diam
eter. Arrange the paste over and
pour the preparation in the centre,
flattening it evenly and leaving an
inch space clear round the edge of
the place; take the remaining five
ounces of paste, roll it out round
shaped, the same as before, fold it in
two, and with a knife make incisions
in the- centre of half an inch each.
Moisten lightly the edge of the plate
with a little beaten egg, then cover
with the paste, pressing down with
the hand all around the edge, so as
to inclose the preparation entirely,
then moisten the surface slightly with
the beaten egg. Place in a moderate
oven and let bake for 50 minutes; re
move it to the oven door, sprinkle
plenty of powdered sugar over, return
it to the oven, closing the door for
two mainutes, so that the sugar melts
entirely, then slide it carefully on to a
dessert dish and serve either hot or
BmI~E SwEET Po'irOis--Pirst boil

and lay them in layers in the baking

Real estate is assessed this year, 1890.
And all par-ties owning land, lots, and build
ings will please look up their deeds, where
necessary, and get the right number of
acres, lots, and buildings that they may own
on the first day of .January, 1890. All build
ings of any sort, that are wvorth ten dollar,;
or over, are to be returned.
A good way for the taxpayer, who has
much property to return, is to make a muem
orandum of each building and its value, the
number of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
goats, hogs, watches, org'ans and pianos,
buggies, wagons and carriages, dogs, mer
counts'(above indebtedness), furniture, &c.,
which will save the taxpayer time, and ena
ble the assessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own on the
first day of January, 1890.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter the first
gve n name of the taxpayer in full, also
make a separate ret-urn for each party for
the township the property is in, and where
the taxpayer ow-ns realty to insert the post
office as their place of residence, and those
who onfy own personal property to give the
party's nanme who owns the land they live
ou as their residence, -which aids the tax
payer as well as the county treasurer in
making the collection and preventing errors.
Every male citizen betw'een the ages of
twenty-one and fifty years on the first day
of January 1890, except those incapable of
earning a sup~port from being maimed, or
from otherecauses, shall be deemed taxable
All returns that are made after the tw'en
'tieth day af February next have to be placed
on the asdditional list and fifty per cent.
penalty added theret., unless prevented by
sickness or out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse. And all owners of
real estate~ might dlo their tenants, wiho can
not read or take a newspaper, a great favor
by inaking their returns or telling them the
timne of listing, atnd that if the-y fail to make
their returns in time that the valuation has
to be increased fifty per cent. unless they
have a good excuse.
Tihe assessing and collecting of taxes is
all (lone no)w in the smuie year, and we have
to aggregate the number and value of all
the horses, cattle, mules, &c., as well as the
acres of land, lots and buildings and their
