Wednesday, September 12, 1894.
The Supreme Court convenes to
day to decide the constitutionality of
the dispensary act of 1893.
Ex-Congressman George Johnstone
is going to run as an Independent
candidate for Congress in the third
district against Congressman Latimer,
the regular Democratic nominee.
General M. C. Butler, in a com

says he is not after re-election to the
United States Senate but that he is

Col. J. Hoyt,' ex-chairman of the
bemoeratie p'trty, is also opposed to
in Independent ticket, and so is tbe

and Bar-ier, the St. Matthews Herald

Dr. Sampson Pope entered the
campai for Reform favors, and
dinding none, he kicked out and with
drew from that contest, but it was
only a temporary kick; he spat upon
bis hands, took a fresh start and has
annorunced his intention to run in the
general election. Go it.,. Pope, there
is plenty of time between now and
November for another immensely
huge kick, and even a er the election:
isover who will dare stop Dr. Pope
If we remember coirectly Dr. Pope
was such an oltra Reformer that he
withdrew his application for the office
of United States marshal and de
nounced the Presidenta as a mug
svdmp. Now he is a candidate for
Governor and wants the suppor t of
the "true Democracy,"' which is the
name assumed by the faction that
laim the Reformers are not Demo
crats o...ause they differ with the
Presidts.t on his financial views. Dr.
Pope has succeeded in making 1im
self a political "what is it ?".
Representative F. H. Weston, one
of the Richland county Conservative
legisative nominees, was asked by a
Register repoi er whether he would
suppoi s the regolar Democratic or
ganization or the organization of the
Independents His reply was, ' The
pledge I took reqr'ires me to support'
the nominees of the September Dem
ocratic convention. By that pledge I
prmised to abide the results. One
of the results was the election of del
egates to the convention. In fulfill
ment of that pledge I shall support
the nominees." The Senatorial nomi
nee of that county holds similar views,
and it may be safely said that al
though Bichland is a Conseir ative
county and opposed to the Reform
nominees, that county will roll up a
handtme majority for the regular
It has been decided by some of the
Conserative faction to hold a con
vention in Columbia next Monday,
and from all indications a full State
ticket will be nominated in opposi
tion to the regular ticket to be nomi
aisd on next Wednesday by the
D.mocratic organization. There are
some Conservatives who disapprove
of nominating a ticket, but are willingI
for the convention to effect an organ
intion for two years hence and then
make a fight for recognition in the
next Democratic national convention.
Mass meetings are to be held in each
county next Friday to send delegates
to this convention, and whetherthes
meetings will be largely attended re
mains to'be seen. Clarendon, no

At the supreme lodge of Knights
of Pythias which met in Washington
last week, a resolution was adopted
providing for a contribution of twen
ty cents a member for the support of
the Pythian University, at Gallatin,
Tenn., where tuition will be given
free to the sons of Pythians.
It is amusing to the Conservative
faction to call themselves the "True
Democracy," and they have called a
meeting for next Saturday to let each
other know how much pleasure they
feel in the new name. In 1890 they
were Straightouts, in 1892 they were
Conservatives, and now in 1894 they
are the "True Democracy," and by
1896 they will have to put their
heads together for another name.
The Reformers are satisfied with the
simple name of Democrat, for it is
under that name they won many a
battle, and under it they will win

Hooi's Sarsaparilla is peculiar to itself,
in a strictly medicinal sense, in three im
portant particulars, viz: first, in the combi
nation of remedial agents used; second, in
the proportion in which they are mixed;
third, in the process by which the active
curative properties of the preparation are
secured. These three important points
make Hood's Sarsaparilla peculiar in its
medicinal merit, as it accomplishes cures
But it is not what we say but what Hood's
Sarsaparilla does, that tells the story. What
Hood's Sarsaparilla has done for others is
reason for confidence that it is the medi
cine for you.
Thousands of new patrons have taken

its benefit in blood purified and strength

We have no such fears, as ex

body in this county is so extremely
anxious to re-elect him Senator, as to
induce bicodshed or murder.

AnA nimnted Cradle Rocker.
During one of his trips to the Coast
Range mountains, Joe Cohen, a ped
dler, cametoalonely cabin andfound
the door wide open.
In the center of the fioor stood a
cradle, in which was an infant fast
asleep. The cradle was rocking with
surprising regularity, but no sign of
what propelled it could be seen.
Joe's curiosity was aroused. He
went to the cradle and found a stout
cord attached to a nail driven in the
side of it. The cord passed through
an augerhole in the side of the house.
He took up the trail, which soon led
him into a ravine where adonkey, or
burro, was standing and switchming
The mystery was explained. The
other end of the cord was tied to the
jack's tail, and the constant switch
ing of itseaudal appendage furnished
motive power sufficient to rock the

Who Place Their Heads Under His
Fire Balloon Signals.
A fire balloon is a recent invention
for signaling by night. The balloon
is made of paper, is portable and is
inflated by burning spirits or even
straw or wood. When ready to as

This is made of combustible beads

match. Different combinations of
large and small beads are used to ex
OLD TIN CANS.
How Every Particle of the Castoff Uten
sil Is Now Utilized.
In the suburis of great cities an
industry hag sprung up, having for
its object the utilization of old tin
cans. In consequence these former
ly despised and useless cans have ac
quired sufficient commercial value to
rescue them from back lot, dumping
ground and garbage scows.
Under the present system of street
cleaning, the refuse -of New York
city is loaded onscows from wharves
located at convenient intervals along
the river front, and then taken to
sea and thrown overboard. These
wharves have double decks, the up
per projecting sufficiently to allow
the contents of a cart to fall upon
the middle of the scow and be dig
tributed by the trimmers, who keep
the vessel on an even keel.
The trinners select everything of
value with the greatest care, rags,
fat, bone, metal, paper stock, etc.,
being stored on the lower deck of the
wharf. The silver and jewelry form
no anall part of the contractor's
profit, and the total value of a scow
load is estimated at an average of
The space between the wharf plat
forms is often closed in with odds
and ends, and the interior converted
into a miserable habitation, by the
trimmers, men and women, who
thus herd together, their supplies be
ing drawn from the dump.
These dumping wharves are the
principal source of supply for the old
tin can industry, and a wagon load
of cans can be bought at such places
for $4 or $5.
The furnace is an old soap boiler,
into which a few sticks are thrown.
The bowlis then filled with cans, and
a quart of kerosene poured over them
and ignited. The heat developed by
the oil is not great enough to at
tack the tin, but melts the solder,
whidh flows to the bottom of the
bowl. The solder recovered from a
load of cans averages 40 pounds.
After this process the tin plate scrap
is sold to make what is called "acid."
Into a large, open vat containing
waste acid, sulphuric orhydrochloric
acid, the scrap is thrown and allowed
to remain until the tin is stripped
from the iron underneath. More
scrap and metallic iron is added until
the solution is neutral. The tin thus
dissolved is used as a basis for the
preparation of stannates or other tin
compounds and by dyers
The iron plate is rolled into balls
for meltingthe ferrous sulphate is
purified and sold as commercial cop
peras, and the emaining acid is used
in repetition of the process.-Youth's
The First Meerschaam.
A shoemaker, Kavol Kowates,
who in 1823 lived at Pesth, the capi
tal of Hungp.ry, smoked the first
meerschaumr. pipe. Besides being a
shoemaker, however, he was one of
nature's handicraftsmen, being gift
ed with an intit,ive genius for carv
ing .in.-%od and other material.
This brought him into contact with
Count Andrassy, with whom he be
came a great favorite. The count,
on his return from a mission to Tur
key, brought with him a piece of
whitish clay, which had been pre
sented to him as a curiosity on ac
count of its extraordinarily light,
specific gravity. It struck the shoe
maker that, being porous, it must be
well adapted for pipes, as it would
absorb the nicotine. The experiment
was tried, and Kavol cut a pipe for
the count and one for himself. This
frst meerschaum pipe made and
smoked by Kavol Kowates has been
preserved in the museum at Pesth.

Uses of Sliver.
Silver for other purposes than coin
has a very extended use. The uses
for it in tableware are well known,
and for plating more is consumed
than in all other of the industrial
arts. It is also used in dentistry,,
photography and on mirrors. It is
the foundation of indelible inks, is
found in surgery and forms a nitrate
in medicine. In mineral water ma
chines it forms the interior of con
densers and the lining of the block
tin pipe. It is used in galvanometers,
and in electricity where the best con
ductor is essential for the most de'
cate tests. About $9,000,000 annal
is used in the arts in the Unilted
