A Word to Merchants.
The first bale of cotton came to town yes
terday, and this one will be followed by
many niore. The people that make cotton
are people that buy such things as our mer
chants keep for sale, and it would be to the!
advantage (f the merchant to advertise his'
wares through the papers, so that people
may know before leaving home with whom
they expect to trade. it is folly to think
that people do not take time to read adver
tisements: they do, and it is very often the
case that a farmer before leaving his home
makes up a list of the goods he desires to
purchase from the advertisements lie finds
in his county paper.
The mission of a county paper is not on
ly to let the people know what is going on,
but also to let them know who can offer the
best bargains, and when they see that a
merchant has the go-aheaditiveness to ad
vertise his goods they at once come to the
conclusion that he is trying to out-do hisI
competitors, and, to carry out his purpose.
bargains await them by giving him a trial.
The MANmIN TD:ES justly claims to be
the best advertising medium in the coun
ty. We not only have a large circulation,
but we have one of the newsiest county pa
pers in the State, and two of our merchants
told us yesterday that their advertising was
a first class paying investment.
Charleston's Mercantile Offers.
We publish this wveek a few new adver
tisements from Charleston, to which we take

John T. Connor. cotton factor and coim
mission merchant, asks our people to give
him a trial. He is a young man full of en
ergy and thoroughly reliable, has his own
warehouses, an d gives his business personaul
Iattention. lHe is prepared to make libeial
advances on any cotton that may be shippet I
to him, andwill handle it as cheap as it
can be handled by any firm in Charleston
Our farmers have made good crops this
'year. and are in hetter.condition to imiprove
their places by building new houses, etc.
I you want any lime', p~laste.r paris, or any

The Charleston Mlattress Manu factu ringC'
Company is an institution established in
Charleston. for which there was great need.
Instead of sending North for mattresses,
spring beds, lounges, etc. w~e can go to this
Icompany and get what we want in this hut
cheaper than can be purchased at the North
er factories. This company mianufacture
largely, and while in the city a few days ago
they showecd us orders from large Ihrms in
Indina and other states, proving conclu-I
sively that they are compuieting with similar
institutions throughout the Unitd State.
Brighten and beautify your homes; ther
is nothing that adds to the cheerfulness ot

E. Holmes & Co., who always keep on hand1
everything in the paint anid varnish line,

The Qualifleationis and Duties of a Sunday
To mention in detail all the qualifications
and duties of a Sunday-school teacher would
be to enumerate many qualifications which
few of us possess, and many duties which
very few teachers perform. We shall there
fore mention only a few which in onr judg
ment are indispensable and most important.
The first, and one that is absolutely nec
essary, is that the teacher should himself be
a true believer in the Triune God and a
consistent member in sonme branch of the
christian church; that he shoultd be familiar
with the leading doctrines of the church,
so as to be able to tell the children what he
believes and why in such plain lang-tage
that their minds may comprehend. To ac
complish this ho should make himself fa
miliar with the scriptures in order to sup
port his statements by a "Thus saith the
Lord." Hie shoul have an amiable dispo
sition and be "apt to teach," possessing a
clevr tact in communicating to others the
truth in~ his own mind, making it clear by
His heart, in the second place, should be
in his work, having an earnest desire to
draw the children to Christ, and this he
shouhl strive to (do not only by precept on
the Sabbath while engaged with his class,
but also by a consistent christian walk and
conversation during the week, thus proving
that he is sincerely and deeply in earnest in
regard to their spiritual and eternal wvelfare.
A Sunday-school teacher should during
the week study the topics of the lesson and
make himself' as familiar as possible with
the truth to be developed from it. He should
make every effort to be punctually at his
post every Sabbath at the hour for opening
school, and should adopt the best methods
he can to cause the children to be prompt
also. Perhaps the-re is nothing more attrac
tive to the children than a well selected cir
In hearing the lesson it is well to inter
sperse questions and explanations illustra
tive of the truth, and also to encourage thme
class to ask for information on any points
which may be mysterious to their young
minds. Ife should impress upon their
minds the truth of' the immortality of the
soul and its price-less value; show how
through the fall of Adam, our federal head
and representative, all purity and holiness
of chairacter was lost; that the whole race
descending from him has inherited a de
praved nature and are inclined only to the
ways of sin and evil, the natural heart being
at enmity with God. He should point out the
necessity for the new birth, or as it is termed
in the tible regeneration. He will then
point them to Jesus Christ, the Saviour;
show what he has done for our redemption,
and how deeply in ear-nest we shoul be for
our own and the salvation of others, ex
plaining clearly that there is no other wvay
than thirough the blood and merits of Christ
Jesus, who is our great substitute, sacrifice,
and mediator, once an offering for sin, now
highly exalted, the great High Priest and
advoate for his pecople. Tell them that
Christ Jesus, by the once offering up of
himself' a sacrilice for our sins, has pur
eiasetd ett-rnal redemption for all who will
acept the offer on his terms, wvhich are free
ant ample. thme simpile exercise of faith in
him, which faith it' true and sincere is sur-c
to lie followed byv a life of obedience mani
f-std in our daily conduct. The Master
says, "T'he tree is known by its fruit." At
the same time he should be-careful to warn
thmn against a Pharisaic confidence in their
own professions and good works, but en
daor to teach them that any good which
w-e may do is not the result of aryv inherent
"ood in us, but only the outgrowth of the
'rc, of Godtt in our hearts, graciously be
stwd a nd applied through the instru
mntlity of tho Hioly Spirit, and all through
th. merits of Christ to wvhom be all the
Tibest- qualilic-ations and duties we con
idr ot priimary importance. Many of'
secionary char'acttr might tbe-added, but
we decm it unnet-essary to prolong the dle
