One of the candidates ing over the
county accidentally slip over the county
line, and strange to sa e met with many
promises of votes, and stranger still, not a
soul mentioned .the'names of his oppo
nents; he was.4eeping things before him.
This candidate had never been about much,
and when at last he discovered he was out
of his bailiwick he had his horse hitched
up and immediately pulled for Clarendon,
hoping that neither of his opponents would
find out his accident, but fate was against
him; one of his opponents spent the night
on the county line and was waiting for
him to return. These candidates, once
they get the scent, follow close behind and
are hard to shake off. But the fellow that
crossed the line fared better in the end, be
cause his opponent in wishing to make
himself agreeable to his guests where he
spent th-e night, walked up to a crib where
a little baby was cooing, and as he truckled
the little dimple-cheeked fellow under the
chin he remarked that he would recognize
the child anywhere by the striking resem
blance to its father. The mother of the
child changed the subject abruptly and it
was not until the next day that our glib
tongued candidate discovered the mother
to be sensitive on that subject, as the
father of the child was not proclaiming
that parentage from the housetops.

Education and Taxation.
Editor THE TImES:
The election is now near at hand
and the time for the voters of Claren
don county to decide who is to Rep
resent them in the next Legislature.
As a candidate for the honor of rep
resenting the people in that august
assemblage, I will briefly give the
people my views through the colums
of your widely circulated paper on
two points most essential as I think
to the people. My points are-one is
Education and the other is Taxation
I believe all of our institutions of
learning ought to be sustained and
as liberal appropriations made as
can be justly made to promote and
advance the cause education and es
pecially help to the Free Common
schools of South Carolina I am op
posed to no means of education in
South Carolina. I am in favor of
every means. The Colleges and all
the higher institutions of learning
will take care of themselves, and the
representative of the people must
guard and take care of the Free
Common schools of the State and
with the free schools justly and lib
erally supported by the State; with
a proper interest taken in the efforts
of the State by parents to have their
children to attend the schools, and a
close application of the children to
their studies while in attendance,
will we believe insure a good educa
tion to every child in the State. This
arrangement all round between State
parents and children will insure we
believe a good education to every
child in the State. The late Edward
Everett, a man of unquestioned
statesmanship and ability and a
member of Congress from Massachu
setts, condensed in a single brief par
agraph what constitutes a good edu
Here it is: "To read the English
language well, to write with despatch
a neat, legible hand, and be master
of the first four rules of arithmetic,
so as to dispose at once of every
question of figures which comes up
in practice." With the efforts of
both the State and the people the
ends of education to the above quot
ed extent we believe can be attained.
Let us all remember that along this
line that the efforts of the State and
the people separately will not do, but
the co-operation of both State and
people will be needed to reach the
desired results, and the impression
lastingly made, that a good educa
tion is elevating and refining and is
the foundation of happiness. This
much is my view briefly stated in
reference to education for the pres
The next matter is taxation. I be
lieve taxes are unnecessarily higher
than they ought to be. Governor
Ellerbe, if I am not mistaken in my
recollection, did on some occasion
say that it is impossible to reduce
taxation. This expression I must ad
mit sounds a little strange to me, but
nevertheless I will not take issue
with the Governor at this point, for
I presume he must know whereof he
speaks. The power that makes it
impossible to redio'e taxation ought
to be equally as sprightly and make
it as impossible to increase taxation.
We all know that taxation is essen
tial to the upholding of a govern
ment it is true, but at the same time
we would like to impress one indis
putable fact upon the minds of all
law-makers, and that fact is that
paying heavy taxes is grievous and
burdensome to taxpayers and is not
so pleasant to them as it is to those
who are reaping a profligate harvest
s the fruits ~of higher taxation in
South Carolina will produce and that
t the expense of the taxpayers. Let
egislators as soon as possible inaugu
rate a system of governmental econ
my in South Caroina, and by all
means in their power at least reduce
ur burdensome taxes.
I am in favor of better and more
eneficial assistance for education
and more especially for the free
chools of the State and for lower
axation. If I am elected to repre
ent the people of Clarendon in the
ext Legislature for these results I
will contend, let the consequences be
what they may. Should the people
f Clarendon county confide in me
sfficient to honor me with a seat in
he next Legislature I will promise
hat their confidence shall not be
bused, nor neither shall they have
ause to regret so doing. I will with
ut fear or favor endeavor to do my
uty as I may understand it, and if
[ come short of my duty then my
onstituents can safely attribute my
shortcomings to an error of the head
ad not the heart.

About one month ago my child, which is
itfteen months old, had an attack of diar
ha accompanied by vomiting. I gave it
uch remedies as are usually given in such
ases, but as nothing gave relief, we sent
or a physician and it was under his care
or a week. At; this time the child had
een sick for about ten days and was hay
ng about twenty-five operations of the
owels every twelve hours, and we were
onvinced that unless it soon obtained re
ief it would not live. Chamberlain's Colic,
holera and Diarrhoea Remedy was recom
nended, and I decided to try it. I soon
oticed a change for the better; by its con
