"JAIL" OR "NO JAIL."
The Grand Jury. in their last pre
sentlent, (onlained about the con
dition of the county jail, and recoin
mended that the question of "Jail" or
No Jail" be again submitted to the
people. No sane man will deny that
Clarendon's jail is a blot upon our civ
ilization. and no reasonable man wili
say that the people should not be taxed
to remove this blot. We hope that our
Couinty Democratic Executive com
mittee will respect the recommendation
of the Grand Jury. by putting a special
box at each club to receive an expres
sion from the people with regard to
the building of the new jail. Some say,
that the Representatives should go
right ahead and levy the tax without
consulting the people, as they will
never vote upon themselves any addi
tional taxes. We do not agree to this
view, for the reason, that the Repre
sentatives, are to represent the people
and do their bidding. The property of
the County belongs to the people, and
if any improvements are to be made
involving a large outlay of the peo
ple's money. and an increase tax. we
think it is just. and altogether proper
for the people to first be consulted.
Representatives have no right what
ever to involve the people with addi
tional tax-burdens without their con
sent. This principal is recognized in
the municipal corporations, when it
comes to the issuance of bonds for im
provements. No city or town can law
fully issue bonds without first obtain
ing the consent of the tax-payers by a
vote at the ballot box, and such a pre
caution is wisdom on the part of the
law. Were it not for such a provision,
a municipal body might enter into"jobs'
and issue bonds that would leave a
a legacy of debt for generations to come
to be taxed. The building of a new
jail will necessitate increasing our
county tax levy, and if the matter is
properly presented to the tax-payers.
we believe they will instruct their Rep
resentatives to make provisions for the
work. but we will state right here.
that as far as the Senator is concerned.
unless the people do express their wil
lingness to be taxed for this purpose
Clarendon must. as long~ as he is in the
Senate, bear with the constant re
proaches of Grand Juries.
There is no more detestable trait in
the character of a human being. than
what is known as bushwhacking. When
a man conceals himself from view and
hurls missiles at an opponent~it is bush
whacking. When a writer. even by in
inuendo, maligns and slanders an op
ponent, and does not make himself
known, it is bushwhacking, and such
an one when discovered, is held in con
tempt by decent men. It would there
fore be placing one's self on a level
with such a creature, to consider him
of enough importance to drag him from
his hiding. but whenever shame drives
him out in the open~and he will disclose
his identity, then if he will make
charges like a true man, instead of
sneaking insinuations, we shall dignify
him with notice: but until then, the
snapping at our heels of a mangy yellow
fice. will have first place in our con
sideration, as a choice between the two.
The indications at present are, that
cotton will open at a fairly good price
this fall. Thnis seems to be the opinion
of men who are engaged in speculation.
We have heard that severalof our far
mers have signed contracts already for
the delivery of their coming crop at
seven cents, middling basis. These in
dications should not, however, cause
our farmers to be too hopeful about
big prices, and it certainly should not
be an incentive to go into debt to make
the staple. It is easy enough to get
into debt, if you have the securities to
offer, but it is like climbing a greasy
pole to get out. If a man has the ready
cash on hand, he may take the chances
to plant a large crop of cotton; by hav
ing this cash, he can lay in his ferti
lizers and other supplies at competitive
prices, but if he has not the money,
then he is forced, if he plants heavily.
to mortgage and pay a burdensome
rate of interest, fees and other expen
ses, and then in some instances he
places himself into the hands of con
sciousless shylocks, who charge out
ragous profits and make their demands
so heavy that the yoke is hard to re
move. We therefore, caution our
readers to beware of the enticing in
ducements that allure you into debt,
especially if the debt must be secured
by a mortgage on your home.your farm,
or your property that you must depend
on for the maintainance of your family.
Clarendon was represented in the
Gineral Assembly by four gentle
men selected by the white voters
o5 the county. These Representatives,
with the exception of one, were born
and raised in the county, and have
lived right here all of there lives. The
one who was not born in this county.
nas spent the best part of his life with
the people of C'larendon, and in the
estimatio~n of them, he merited their
confidence to such an extent. that they
have honored him time- and again with
positions of honor and trust. That he
has ever been faithful to his trust is
'-videnced by the fact, that no one has
ever defeated him. For the past two
vear's these Representatives have la
bored together for their coulnty's good.
P~l~l~. A Q jt? j-t'itin.y of the r'ecords

will show that the members of the
House were always present at their
posts of duty. unless prevented by ill
ness. iud that when present they in
telligently participated in the discus
sions. especially were they watchful for
the interests of their county. The Sen
ator in the two years missed two roll
calls: one was caused by a belated train,
the other, by his accepting the invita

document. and we invite any man to
take the journals of the Senate and
House. and compiare them with like

who preceeded the present delegation,
and the verdict will not reflect discredit
upon the present delegation.
The Senator has two more years te
sarve, but the term of his colleague:
has expired. If they are to go back tc

MARCH AND THE LION.
Something Better Than the Old Saw.
The saying about the lion and the lamb In
March often proves false, but there is another
and better one which is literally true. When
March comes in and finds you 'taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla to purify, enrich and vitalize your
blood, you may expect, when it goes out. that it
will leave you free from that tired feeling and
with none of the boils, pimples and eruptions
which manifest themselves because of impure
blood in the spring. If you have not already be
gun taking Hood's Sarsaparilla for your spring
medicine,^we advise you to begin today. We
assure you it will make you feel better all
through the coming summer. m

SGROFULf RND ITS RWFUL HORRORS
A MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in
the year 1812, the year of the great war, in Hebron, Washington Co., New
York. She came to Michigan in 1840, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory, her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use of
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly. destructive blood taint which has cursed
and is cursing the lives of thousands and marking thousands more as vic
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings in the neck or
goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing in the lungs it may be,
and often is, the prime cause of consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. My arms and limbs would break out in a mass of
sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very
unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were alo greatly inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very
much. My blood was 13 a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also in my ears. I
was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians In
the state told me I must dIe of scrofulous consumption, as internal abeesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else. as I had no faith in it, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking It I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up, all the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course an old lady
of 83 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA is the
greatest biood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did
not lok to be more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
