WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1890.
For the past week the legislature has put
in some hard work, and by hard fight
ing the reformers have succeeded in
acting on most of the measures suggested
by Governor Tillman in his inaugural ad
dress. Of course everything could not be
done in one session, and especially one so
short as custom has made the sittings of a
South Carolina legislature, but the work of
reform has already commenced, and the
people will not regret having so generously
supported the reform movement.
The bill to further regulate the practice of
physic and surgery in this State, which was
advocated by Representative Woods, was
The bill to reduce the sheriffs dieting
fees in county jails was killed.
The office of jury commissioner is to be
abolished, and the duties of said office will

to open and set aside and grant new trials,

The legislature is to adjourn to-day in ac
cordance with an established custom.
One of the important bills that baa been
passed by the general assembly was theone
to abolish the department of agriculture and
thwoffice'of commissioner of agriculture.
The duties of the commissioner of agri
culture will now devolve upon the trustees
of Clemson College.
The bill to provide separate coaches for
the races waskilled. Those opposing it did
so uponl the ground of inexpediency.
The Philadelphia I-nes in speaking of
the defeat of Senator Wade Hampton and
the election of J. L. M. Irby says: "That
the meaning of it is a breaking away from
the old aristocrat traditions, and a general
-itical confusion, out of which South
is to work out her own salvation,
and South Carolina will eventially take her
- in.the advancing columns of the new
The people of South Carolina love
and-respect Wade Hampton. But he has
neither gone into the new movement nor
resolutely fought it, and he has fallen by
the way side amid universal regret."
General-MasterPowderly, chief of Knights
of labor, says that there is no necessity to
form a new political party, but to form a
new political movement having a definite
object in view. The Knights of Labor and
the Formers' Alliance vsl very probably
act in harmony with each other.
Col. Irby was to have resigned his position
an speaker of the house of representatives
yesterday. Severalmembers were mention
ed for the place, and a lively race was look
On the Free School Nystem.
The following letter was received a few,
days ago, and as it affords so much food for
relection on the subjict under discussion I
answer it in this public: manner:
"Dzczm 4, 1890.
Mr. D. Tucker-Dear Sir: Can you in
firm me why it is that in the State of South
Carolina. so prolific in educational talents,
with few exceptions our colleges and schools
are equipped with professors and teachers
who are non-native South Carolinians?
Yours truly, WIrLInM H--"
H~o, Willam, I can't tell you why it is.
There seems to be a streak of some kind of
edlucational reform going on with "the pow
ors that be in regard to the educational in
terest of the State, which consists princa
pally in the employment of alien or non
native teachers in all of our institutions of
learning of the State, with large salaries at
bhyit isthus Iafmot see. It seems to me
that as the people pay the taxes that sup
port our colleges and schools, in the selec
tion of teachers all things being equal
preference should be given to home talent.
Whta sad commentary upon our boasted
university and other colleges almost unlim
Itedi mnumber that they turn out graduates
incompetent to take charge -of our schools.
What inducementsaare-ofiered to students
~; who after laboring fcr years preparing
Sthemseles as teachers, to kow that the
avenues of the profession are closed against
~'them by non-employment because of the
stigma of being native-horn attaches to
'them. Sueh astate of facts makes one al
msast .curse the land of birth. This, how
ever, isthe sad, lamentable facts, and really,
William, I cannot account forit. The whys
and wherefores thereof is beyond my comn
When the Clemson college matter was be
tng agitated last year, its advccates claimed
that besides being a pure and simple farm
ers' boys'taig ool,it would bepre
sided over by home talent. But Io and be
bold,. what. have we? It seems that the
trustees -of the institution hjve scoured the
10 'hole four winds of the United States to get
paessors, and poor little South Carolina's
hoetalent got only the "scraps" left after
the 'loaves andsahes" had been shared out
anmonag others than of the "manor born."
Is this right?- is it just to those deserving
appliantst of the manor born who have no
fr~doubt spent the best years of their lives pre
paringthemselvestoflljust these positions?
iet it is evident that the trustees acted
consonant with the old adage. "A prophet
Is not witliout honor save in his own coun
try. "Oh! my country, 'tis of thee."
Well, may bit is right, but some how I
I ca n't see when and where the right comes
n.How mach of the Isrge salaries are
spent or invested in the State? Very little,
if any. On the contrary it is carried with
out the State and spent or invested at the
'p tvhomes of these alien or nor,-native
- pofessors and teachers, thereby impoverish
rog the State justthatmuch. Ihave no quar
sel with the trustees, neither do I impugn
* or question their motives or actions in the
matter, nor am I envious of the recipients
-of their (State) bounty. They are all hon
est and conscientious gentlemen, and no
doubt with the lights before them acted in
good fath and for the best,hbutlIcant help
*- thinking that these positions, or at least a
majority of these, could and should have
been fdlled by natives of the State.
Nqow, I am done with the "b:g fish" and
will arraign the '"small fry."
The mode and manner of governing our
eammon free schools now in vogue is a co
lonial farce. In the first plae'e the salaries
paid competent teachers would beggar a
gat, and good teachers cannot be procured
aasueh salaries:-'tas fntile to expect it. The
result is that "old hacks" who just squezed
through an exarination are employed,
whose chief concern consists in doing as
httle teaching as possible, and drawing
theirsalarieswith promptness and dispatch,
and sad to say it is invariably the case. The
applicant from "abroad" if only from an
ajining county is given the preference in
selecting a teacher, wl n abundant home
talent abounds in our '~mdst.
T1hen it seems to me t our teachers are
given to "foreign ideas" about this mode of
teaching. There are more maps, charts,
and new-fangled apparatuses used in teach
ing than when I attended school, and I
don't see that they make any smarter schol
ars than in the days of long ago. I see that
b-a-k-c-n as spelled in Webster's blue back
speller is the same as in these high-faluting
spellers that cost so much to buy. It al
most bankrupts a poor man to buy school
books now, to be changed for a new set
with a change of teacher. It is attempted
now to cram orthography, etymology, syn
tax, and prosody all at once and from the
samne book into a ha, be pupiL. Why this
sysembeats the sausage stuffer all to smash,
with the cutter thrown in. When I went to
school in the good old days of long ago we
- had our lessons to learn at night for the
--next day, and, many the happy hours rye
spent at the dining room fire after supper
advi' my next day's lessons. .How is it
now. Wy by this new-fangled way the
-scholar has to write out his next day's les
ano sus the evening and night previous, and
band them in tothe teacher the next day
for correction if necessary, thereby mag
the child's parents aid in teaching with~out
a bedamni having around
. obewants the-square
root of 7642, Lizzie the principal rivers in
Russia, and Fannie the capitals of the
States of the Union. Mind now, all this
has to be written out and handed the teach
er to-morrow. Then it goes along until
bed-time and generally leaves my mnind in
a whirl of which this communication is an
evidence. I was in hopes my school days
were over with, but it seems they have just
begun with extensive variations. I have
about made up my mind to quit pulling
chestnuts out of the fire for our teacher, but
I don't reckon I will, for she is just such a

I contracted a severe case of blood
poison in 1883, 'and my physicians
put me under a mercurial treatment
of three months without doing me
any good, in fact I was gradually
growing worse. 'I then consulted an
other physician, who tried me with
potash and sarsaparilla, but with no
better result. I then became disgust
ed with doctors and their remedies,
and commenced taking Swift's Spe
cific (S. S. S.) After' taking seven
bottles I was entirely cured, and I
have not had any symptoms of a re

CHArANooGA, Dec. 21.-The Su
preme Court of this State, sitting at
Nashville, has rendered a decision in
a case involving the payment of taxes
on real estate mortgages. The court
was of opinion that a mortgage is not
taxable. It is not property, but sim
ply an instrument to secure a debt
and is not taxable. The decision is
important, as heretofore mortgages
have been frequently taxed.
aesmany lives miserabie, and often leads to
sefdestruction. Distress after eating,sick head
ache, heartburn, sour stomach, mental depres
sion, etc., are cauaed by this very common and
increasing disease. Hood's sarsaparinlatones the
stomah creates an appetite, promotes healthy
digestion, relieves sick headache, clears the
mind, and cures the most obstinate cases of dys
pepsia. Bead the fonlowing:
"IJ have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
butitle appetite,and what I did eat distressed
me,or did me little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, an-~gone
feeling, s though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's sarsaparilla did me an Immense amount
of good. It gave me anappetite, and my food
relshedandsatisfied the craving I had previousiy
experienced. It relieved me of that faint, tired,
afl-gone feelng. I have felt so much better since
I took Hood's sarsaparinla, that I am happy to
recommend it." G. A. PAoE, watertown, Mass.

these lads were taught to show to
their own sisters naturally extended
itself to all women. They grew up
true gentlemen-gentlemen, gener

which scorns to use its strength ex
