-One day last winter a lady came to my drug

Grandin, the popular druggist of Ontario. N. Y.
" She was dissappointed and wanted to know

said to her that I could freely recommend
Chamberlain's Coug Remedy and that she
could take a bottle of the remedy and after
Igiving it a fair trial if she did not find it worth
tile money to bring back the bottle and I would
refund the price paid. In the course of a day
or two the lady came back in company with a

her to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. I consider that a very good recom
mendation for the remedy."~ It is for sale by

one party. Love of public hon
ors and the desire for public
office is found everywhere, with
only here and there an. excep
tion. In truth and candor we
presume that McLaurin's accu
sers would claim for themselves
neither grater love for the State,
nor more ability or more honesty
of purpose than is possessed by
the believers in McLaurin 's
politics. It has not been shown
where any of 'his enemies are
better than he is.
We do not know why the Anti
McLaurin papers are reduced to
the necessity of making bare
faced and unsupported charges
against the supporters of Mc
Laurin, while the makers them
selves could not lay their hands
upon their hearts and say they
spoke the truth when they claim
a super-abundance of public
spirit, and charge that McLau
in and his supporters have ap
propriated all the evil qualities.
Would Col. Hoyt of the Green
ville Mountaineer claim greater
patriotism and more respecta
bility than an impartial jur~y
would award to Editor Wallace
of the Newberry Observer?
Would the Yorkville Yoeman
claim to be better and purer
than the Carolina Spartan?
Would the Laurens Adverti
ser assume a degree of patriot
ism superior to and in excess of
that posessed by the Yorkville
Would the Orangeburg Patriot
place its own loyalty to South
Carolina above that of the good~
old Keowee Courier?
Would the Laurens County
News assume to be better able
to speak for the people than the
Would the News and Courier
and the State lay claim to a
monopoly of public spirit, and
charge that the Evening Post,
the Daily Record, the Greenviile
News and the Spartanburg
Herald were short on this most
highly prized quality?
The News and Courier and The
State are partizan, and constant
ly give cause of offense to the
supporters of McLaurin, while
the other four papers are for
McLaurin, but fair to all.
If it were possible for the
News and Courier and The State
to represent the whole people of
the Commonwealth, instead of a
faction, it would be a consum
mation devoutly to be wished.
These papers are published at
the great centres in this State
and it would be a blessed thing
if every man in the State could
regard both with friendly con
sideration, however much they
might differ in politics. The
same is true of the County pa
pers. The people expect and

with decent respect.
South Carolina needs news
papers that can be fair. Partizan
feeling, and the misrepresenta
tion of the other side, is not our'
ideal of the highest journalism.
We cannot believe that the News
and Courier doubts the honesty
and the sincerity of those who
support McLaurin. We cannot
believe that the News and
Courier would seriously,
claim to be more honest and
more patriotic than McLaurin's
supporters. Believing that the
News and Courier would not be
so egotistical, we fail to see
wherein that paper expects to
gain anything, or hopes to be
more influential, by simply rub
bing the hair the wrong way,
and reducing the circle of its
friends, instead of printing for
all the people, and making
friends of all the people. No
newspaper, county or State,
need circumscribe its influence
or reduce its friends to only its
followers. What the people'
want is reason. The time has
passed for attributing every
thing evil to our neighbors that
we may lay claims to a monopo
ly of all the virtues.
The false accusations against
MLaurin and his supporters
will avail nothing. The people
are not natural born fools.
They recognize fools when they
see them, and the newspapers
might just as well realize the
situation, and place themselves
at the head of the procession in'
the march to wider fields and
greater sources of industrial
development. The people are
determined to advance in ma

Knots on Trees.
In the barks of our forest trees are
contained a multitude of latent buds,
which are developed and grow under
certain favorable conditions. Some
trees possess this property in a remark
able degree, and often. when the other
parts are killed down by frost, the
property of pushing out these latent
buds into growth preserves the life of
the plant. These buds, having once
begun to grow, adhere to the woody
layer at their base and push out their
points through the back toward the
The buds then unfold and develop
leaves, which elhrborate the sap carried
