MANNING, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 27th, 1895.
The United States Supreme court
has dismissed the appeal in the regis
tration case carried up from the de
cision of the court of appeals.
In declining to make it mandatory
upon the State to support institutions
of higher learning, we think the Con
vention acted wisely. Had they
made it mandatory the day might
come when the people would want a
change and not be able to get it.
We would have been anchored to a
system which might smash to pieces
the common schools of the country,;
as long as the State can do so, with
out crippleing the common school
service, we think she should give
liberal support to the collegcs, but
always keep a fostering care for the
common schools. As the new Con
stitution stands the Legislature has
some discretion, it can make appro
priations for the colleges or not as it
believes best for the people's welfare.
The masses are not able to send their
children away from home to be edu
cated and it is from them the bulk of
the taxes are collected; they have the
right to expect the State to do more
for them than for a select few who
are able to send their children to
It is always painful to us to do an
injustice to any one, and when we
have done so to a friend it becomes
more painful. In our last issue we
stated that Hon. J. W. Kennedy
was among those who voted for the
measure raising the talary of the
members of the Constitutional Con
vention from two to four dallars per
day, it turns out from the letter we re
ceived from Captain D. J1. Bradham,
which we publish elsewhere that we
were misiaken and also mistaken in
stating that Mr. Cantey was not
among those voting. We received
our iniformation from last Wednes
day's News and Courier's report of
-the vote on the measure which did
state that Mr. Kennedy was paired
with Mr. Barker, and that Mr. Barker
wouldh-lave voted against four dol
lars andtenne wald have voted
for it; thus recording - nedy with
the salary grabbers. The -mistake
was with the News and Courier and
Mr. Kennedy should on a question
of personal privilege rise upon the
floor of the Convention and ask that
justice be done him by having the
report corrected. It affords us a
great deal of pleasure to now be able
to announce that the Clarendon dele
gation have been true to the people;
that their records are clean and that
they refused to be mislead into doub
ling their salaries, although they are
making great sacrifices while away.
from their business. We have always
thought the legislature did wrong in
fixing the salary at two dollars a day;
it is not enough, but they did it, and
the members were elected fully aware
of what their pay would be, and un
der circumstances we think it doubly
wrong for the members to increase
the pay. The pay has been increased
however, but it was Dot done by the
votes of Bradham, Cantey nor Ken
nedy, let it be said to their honor.
The new county craze has at last
struck Clarendon, meetings are being
held in Salem for the purpose of agi
tating the question of a new county
to be formed from parts of this and
Sumter, and the moving spirit in the
whole business is to give some peo
ple offices that have been repudiated
in both of the old counties. We arc
informed that the new county agita
tors are telling people, if they will
vote to cut themselves off from Sum.
ter and Clarendon, their taxes wvill
be a great deal less than they are
now, and the only expense they woul
be put to is the building of a court
house and jail; they also tell the peo
ple that all of the county officers are
paid salaries which comes out of the
State treasury, and other similar rot.
If these designers succeed in fooling
the people into voting for a new
county, they will bring on those peo
ple the cost of not only building a
court house and jail, but the salary
of every ecounty officer elected by
them. No county otlicer gets his pay
from the State treasury, and asser
tions to the contrary are simply made
to advance the personal ambition of
men who could not be elected dog
pelters in their own counties.
It does not uee'i a very wise man
to see the folly of the argument that
a smaller county will increase the ex
pense. The larger the county, the
more property there is in it to collect
taxes from and the expense of run
ning a small couty is about as much
as a larger oue, fur it takes the same
number of officers and they all get
about the same pay, tben if it takes
$30,000 to meet the re quirements as
the county stands now, it would if
the county was made smaller raise;
the tax levy on every tax-payer to
such an extent as to get the necessary~
amount. In other words, if to raise
$100 you have ten to draw from, each
would pay ten dollars, but if the same,
amount had to be raised and you~
only have five to draw from, the as
sessment would be exactly double on
the remaining five. The same prin- I
:iple exists in the formation of new1
We do not wish to be understood
as being opposed to the new county.
We are not if the people desire it,but
we are opposed to them being mis
lead with false statements by design
ing politicians. If the people of Sa
lem are willing to bear about double
taxation they pay now, and want to
join with others to form a new county,
it is their privilege to do so, but at
the same time we would not be do
ing our duty did we not show them
what must come when they take such
a step. If our information is correct
that the promoters of the scheme are
telling the people that the expense of
running the new county will come
out of the State treasury, is true, then
we have no hesitancy in telling the
people, such statements are made
simply to further the ends of design
ing men who are stiring up this agi
tation for selfish purposes; for office
or to bring their individual property
into a market for sale.

THE SEABOARD AIR LINE EX
This is one of the most ingenious, at
tractive and creditable features of the Cot
ton States Exposition. It is located in Ag
ricultural Hall near the main entrance. Its
design and arrangement to the minutest de
tail was intrusted to John T. Patrick. for
merly State commissioner for North Caro
lina; the man who created the pretty vil
liage and resoit of Southern Pines from a
barren sand bill, and is now superintend
ing a similar process of evontion at Pine
Bluff. The result of his conscientious and
inderatigable efforts is a display of singular
beauty and instructive merit.
A more desirable location could hardly
have been selected or secured. It occupies
the front middle half of the building, ex
tending to the wings on either side and
covering the space of 3,700 square feet.
All of this floor area has been has been
utilized to the best advantage. There is
no article nor decoration in it that is not
significant of something that is practical
and useful. The main purpose of this dis
play is kept pre-eminently in view, and all
the details o'f ornam-nt and use are subor
dinated to it, the completed whole forming
a consistent, harm~onious, suggestive pie
ttare, to be studied as well as admired.
The Seaboard people have just reason to
be proud so thoroughly able and interest-.
ing an exposition of the enterprise, indus
try and resources of the country tributary
to their line.
Its two entrances face diagonally the
main passageway of the building. Each
consits of three columns of limestone,
brownstone and granite in the rough (the
brownstone being furnished by the Aldrich
company, of Sanford, N. C.), resting on
brownstone pedestals and capped with fin
ished blocks of the same material. A -plain
longitudinal beam or framework unites
and rests on these columns, completing the
two commodious passage ways for each en
trance. These are neatly ornamented, and
on the cloth covering "Seaboard Air Line"
is conspicuously lettered. The name of
the company in fact appears at every van
tage point. It stretches overhead along the
entire length of the timber that joins the
wings to the main hall, and where space
does not admit, it assumes its abbreviated
nomenclature, and "S. A. L." catches the
eye of visitors from all poigts of observa
tion. A light wvooden railing about three
feet Ligh attached to short columns of na
tive rock with finished brownstone caps,
srroinds the exhibit. This form of in
closure insures an open and unobstructed
view of the interior from all sides.
The sensational or speetacular feature of
the display is the arch at the rear end which
spans the aisle and gives unity of effect to
the exhibit that would otherwise appear to
be separated in two divisions. This arch
is graceful and appropriate rather than im
posing. Its supporting colums are taste
fully draped and crowned with sheaves of
grain. In the broad curve "Seaboard Air
Line" stands out in bold red letters. This
inscription is repeated on the reverse side
in bright tobacco leaf of dead goid color.
The pedimont of the arch system is triang
ular in shape, in the center of which is a
pretty device of interwoven stalks of corn
From the apex rises a flagstaff from
which is suspened a beautiful silk flag.
Grains, cereals. corn cobs and tobacco
leaves constitute the principal material of
embellishmuent, and it is surprising what
charming effects such simple materials can
be made to produce. To the right thnis arch
is flanked by a map of thirty feet wide by
fifteen high dimensions, which illustrates
not only the main Seaboard route, but the
points it reachas in other states via its con
necting lines. A unique and taking feat
ure is the running of actual trains over its
surface track, which foilow each other in
uninterrupted succession, starting from
Portsmouth and terminating in Atlanta.
All the leading cities and towns on the line
are distinctly noted. On a raised sheif at
the foot of the map are ranged in rows ex
tending the entire length of the border
line, specimens of soi! corresponding to
the towns and places from which they were
taken as designated on the map above
them. On the opposite side of the arch on
a level with the map is an immense panel
(thirty feet by five) on which is placarded
wvith cotton boils in strong relief the fol

The following are the earliest
known examples of printing-two in
dulgenees, printed usually on one
side only of a single piece of vellum
and two magnificent Bibles. Of
these one is known to be the first
complete book that ever was printed
by the wonderful new invention,
which, as the early printprs so often
proudly state in their colophons, pro
duced "letters without ~the aid of
any sort of pen, whether of quill, of
reed or of metal."
The first piece of printing which is
actually dated is de famous iudul
gence of Nicholas V to such as should
contribute money to aid the king of
Cyprus against the Turks. This in
dulgenee has the printed year date
1454, and a copy in The Hague mu
seum has the date "Nov. 15" filled in
with a pen. Mr. Duff tells us that
"in the years 1454 and 1455 there was
alarge demand for these indulgences
and seven editions were issued.
These may be divided into two sets,

So lines, the first dated example be
longing to the former."
This 30 line edition is shown to
have been printed by Peter Schoeffer
de Gernsheim, by the fact that some
of the initial letters which occur in
it appear in another later indulgence
of 1489, which is known to have
come from his press.-Saturday Re
Some recent results in French
chemical experience hiave attracted
considerable attention from the fact
that by new methods a temperature
has been obtained far lower than
hitherto known-namely, 273 de
grees C. below zero or 491 degree
F. below the freezing point of water.
This temperature was obtained, ii
seems, by using a series of cold we:L
according to a simple and origina
plan. In the first of these well
there was used a mixture of carbonic
acid and sulpurous acid and by theif
evaporation a temperature was se
cured of 110 degrees C. below zero.
In this cold well was then immersed
a condenser in which the vapors of a
still more volatile liquid, protoxide
of nitrogen, or ethylene, were con
densed and thus reached 150 degrees
below zero. In another well 210 de.
grees was marked and again 273 de
grees. In the case of these last
named wells, nitrogen, carbonic, ox
ide, marsh gas and atmospheric air
under pressure of 40 atmospheres
were employed, and the instrumnents
with which measurement of the low
er temperatures were made consisted
of hydrogen thermometers graduat
ed by comparison with the sulphuric
ether instruments. It is thought
that the low temperatures obtained
by these experiments will lead tc
some new chemical combinations o:
