No Need to Agitate.
Some of the newspapers of the
State are calling for action by some
of those who issued the real conserv
ative address a few weeks ago. We
need no action in this direction, for
as a matter of fact if an organized ef
fort is made on the part of any part
of the people it will necessarily meet
with nartisan resistance and it will
fail to accomplish its purpose, it will
of itself be partisan. We feel sure
that it was the unanimous wish of the
forty that the whole of the white
people of the State make choice of
mneni without reference to previous
political conditions, and this will be
done, unless a paitisan campaign is
forced on us by over-ambitious poli
ticians. Thev recognize the fact
that this is to be the most important
body that has gathered in the State
since the war with the greatest du
ties and the heaviest responsibilities,
and they were fully aware that in a
partisan contest the more important
matters, matters that will certainly
make the law conform to the condi
tions of the times are lost sight of,
and probably he who would be least
qualified would be the apparent
choice, when in reality it was the- cry
of persecution. If it was expected
that this conference should resolve it
self into a support for any faction
just for the purpose of gaining con
trol of the convention, this is a great
mistake. On the other hand, it was
expected to allay all strife and allow
the people to come together and
work in harmony. The people are
fully competent to take care of their
interest and will make no mistake in
the choice of men if allowed quietly
to go about it, but a campaign upon
factional lines would simply amount
to the minority whipping themselves
out of the representation they would
be entitled to and would get in the
convention. There need not be the
slightest fear that the rights of the
people will be loosely dealt with, or
that any set of men would attempt to
incorporate in the organic law a sys
tem whereby they could perpetuate
their own political interest, for they
could not hardly have little enough
foresight, but that they would know
it would rebound with accelerated
force. Whatever may be the condi
tions, we have confidence in that
body to give us a better, simpler and
more harmonious law. Now, we do
not intend to offer advice or attempt
to mark out any particular course for
any faction to pursue, but we hope
that the politicians who have unfor
tunately found themselves on the
light side will not try to dictate the
policy that must be adopted and car
ried out by that conservative forty.
Suppose the forty should make a
faithful effort to organize in each
county as suggested. Would they
or could they avoid coming in conflict
with the organized party of the State?
There being no way to beneft the sit
uation by organization, the better
plan is to leave each county to ar
range for representation according to
its own consciousness. But in an
swer to definite suggest ions, suppose
that Charleston andi Richland coun
ties should be the first to step on to
the conservative platform and allow
proportionate representation, is there
any- doubt but tbat there would be at.
least one of their faction put on from
every county, and some more.
Our position is that the State exec
utive committee should meet as early
as practical and adopt a definite plan
for the nomination of delegates, and
then every white man go to work to
crry out in good faith his part of the
contract. We believe it best, and
hope the executive committee will so
decile, to leave to each county the
method of its choice for delegates.

States well informed as to the news
and workings of the order in every
lodge and for the ennobling, better
ment and elevation of mankind.
Mr. Coker has received much en
couragement from the Pythian
Knights of this, as well as other cities
and from present indications the pa
per will be a grand success.
A number of well known newspa
per men and Pythians and Knights
of Pvthias from all over the State will
contribute weekly to the paper. It
will contain the news from every
lodge in the State every week, such
as meetings, etc. .\r. Coker will be
glad to correspond with cvery Knight
in the State that is interested in the
project and hopes that the K. of R1.

its tirst issue the names of the newly

and a noble one and deserves the

GOOD FRIDAY IN ITALY.
a Description of the rassion Procesion as
Seen In Taranto.
On Good Friday, March 31, we
drove into Taranto to see the passion
procession. It passed very slowly
down the Corso at the midst of a
great moving crowd. The members
of the Confraternita, with white
hoods and veils, a twisted wreath of
thornstems around their foreheads,
a white soutane, blue sash and very
pale lemon colored cape, marched
barefoot before each of the palchi, or
platforms. These were carried on
the shoulders of four stalwart broth
ers of the order, assisted by four men
in civil dress. Life size figures, real
istically painted, told the history of
the passion in six tableaus.
First came Christ, kneeling in the
garden, while a white robed angel
stood beside and offered him a cup.
Then A terrible Christ at the flagel
lation pillar, his bones laid bare at
the shoulders, knees, ribs, the pallid
flesh torn with livid wales and bleed
ing wounds. Then Christ robed in
the purple with the crown of
thorns-the Ecce Homo. Then the
crucifixion. Then a black bier with
a huge black cross above it.
Then the chief piece of the whole
show-a dead, white Christ, covered
with a veil, placed upon a rich mor
tuary bier. Besides the usual bear
ers four gentlemen of the city in full
dress held the four ends of the pall.
Among them was the magnificent
Marchese d'A-, with his grand
swagger. "Che bellas preenza!" said
the people. Their lackeys in livery
attended these four noblemen.
The procession was terminated by
a Madonna Dolorosa in rather fash
ionable mourning holding a red
heart in her hand. Priests and other
brethren of the Confraternita closed
the cortege. Three brass bands,
sounding lugubrious and impressive
strains of music, with cavernous
drums and clashing cymbals, kept
up a continuous plangent ululation
as the pomp went slowly by. It was
evening ere it passed. Lighted lamps
and wax torches made the last two
tableaus more impressive.-Fort
The Shooting of Marshal Ney.
Ney refused naturally to place him
self on his knees and to allow his
eyes to be bandaged. He only asked
Commandant Saint-Bias to show him
where he was to stand. He faced the
platoon, which held their muskets at
"the recover," and then, in an atti
tude which I shall never forget, so
noble was it, calm and dignified,
without any swagger, he took off his
hat, and profiting by the short mo
ment which was caused by the ad
judant de place having to place him
self on one side and to give the signal
for firing, he pronounced these few
words, which I heard very distinctly,
"Frenchmen, I protest against my
sentence, my honor"-- At these last
words, as he was placing his hand on
his heart, the detonation was heard.
He fell as if struck by lightning. A
roll of the drums and the cries of
"Vive le Roil" by the troops formed
in square brought to a close this
This fine death made a great im
pression on me. Turning to Augus
tus de la Rochejaquelin, colonel of
the Grenadiers, who was by my side

to him, "There, my dear friend, is a
grand lesson in learning to die."

In the western hemisphere the

months out of five, during which

above 90 degrees while in July and
August it exceeded 100 degrees.
The mean temrperature for the 24

An Anecdote of Gounod.
As everybody by this time knows,
Gounod was at one moment within
an ace of takig holy orders, but on
reflection he thought that the life of
a priest would not buit him. He none
the less remained a firm and devout
Catholic and adored religious music.
On this point a typical anecdote is
told of him. It occurred during the
rehearsal of his "Drames Sacres" at
the Vaudeville theater. The mana
ger called on him one morning and
asked permission to make a sugges
tion. "I think, mon cher maitre,"
he said. "'that there is something
wanting in your sacre. For example,
do you not think that the Barabbas
incident might be improved by a lit
tle more orchestral effect?" Gounod,
without replying, hid his head in his
hands, and after two or three mini
utes of meditation suddenly ex
claimed: "-No. Decidedly no. Such
a blackguard as that does not deserve
more musia."-London Globe.

Anatomy of a Snake.
The anatomy of a snake is peculiar
and has much to do with its peculiar
motion. The ribs are loosely articu
lated with the vertebra and are
movable. By bending the body in
lateral curves, which is the only.
mode of motion, and not the vertical
bending, as many think, the scales.
which are attached to the ends d~
the ribs, are separated, and 1:g
their free edges take hold upon
the ground. When the body is
straightened out, the ends of the ribs
approach each other, and so force
the body forward; then by the bend
ing of the other side this movement
is repeated, and so the snake glides
along. The same movement of the
ribs and scales forces the animal
through the water, as it swims with
tho head above the surface, and 'with
its body slightly submerged.-New

A good way for the taxpayer, who
as much property to return, is to
ake a numeration of the number of
orses, cattle,mules, sheep and goats,
mogs, watches, organs and pianos,
rlggies, wagons and carriages, dogs,
erchandise, machinery, moneys,
otes and accounts, (above indebted
less) furniture, &c., which will save
le taxpayer time, and enable the
Lsessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own
n the first day of January, 1895
All personal property, must be
eturned th's- year.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
he first given name of the taxpayer
a full, also make a seperate return
'or each party for the township the
'roperty is in, and where the tax
aver owns realty, to insert the past
ffie as their place of residence, and
hose who only own personal prop
rity, to give the party's name wh~o
,wns the land they live on as their
esidence, which aids the taxpayer
well as the county treasurer in
naking the collections and prevent
Every male citizen between the
Lges of twenty-one and fifty years
,n the first day of January, 1895, ex
ep; those incapable of earning a
upport from being mamied, or from
)ther causes, shall be deemed tax
All the returns that are made after
he twentieth day of February will
iave a nenalty of 50 per cent,_ added
hereto, :mless prevented by sickness
r out of the county during the time
,f listing. Not knowing the time of
isting is no excuse. And all owners
)f real estate, might do their tenants,
vho cannot read, or take a news
aper, a great favor by making their
eturns or telling them the time of
isting, and that if they fail to make
their returns in time that the valua
bion has to be increased 50 per cent.
mnless they have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of
axes is all done now in the same
year, and we have to aggregate the
umber and value of all the horses,
attle, mules, & c.. as well as the acres
f land, lots, and buildings, and their
value, that there is in the county,
and have same on fila in the Comp
troller Gjeneral's office by the thir
tieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Oc
tober each year the auditor's and
treasurer's duplicate has to be com
pleted and an abstract of the work
in the Comptroller's office by Ithat
time, which will show at a glance
that the auditor has no time to take
in returns or do anything else much,
between the first day of March and
the first day of October each year,
but work on the books and blanks.
Therefore I hope that all taxpayers
will do us the favor of making their
returns in time.
