The people shall not be de
prived of the full benefit that
may be derived from rumors
which have been put into circu
lation for the purpose of creat
ing prejudice against us. We
are running a newspaper and it
is a part of the work of such an
institution to find out what is
going on, and finding it out, the
people are entitled to share it
with us. '
There is much whispering go
ing on just now among certain
men, about a fearful secret about
our political status. Our op
ponents have sunk their plumets
into the earth, and discovered
that "Appelt is an Anti," that,
"he sold out to them and it is
absolutely necessary that he
should be defeated for the Sen
ate."_ Why said one who favors
one of our opponents, "Appelt
used my name in his paper, and
now I am oblige to fight him, as
the Reform faction cannot afford
to let him win."
We wish to say that this man
who is now trying to draw fac
tional lines, was only too glad to
get for himself two years ago
the vote of the former Conserva
tives. He did much catering to
them and awfully opposed to
anything like factionalism, now
however, he is, and very natur
ally so, supporting one of our
opponents, and to do so he would
re-open the old factional sore, to
expose it to those whom he
thinks he can fool a vote out of
against us. When that has no
effect, then "Appelt is a Repub
lican, and we cannot afford to
vote for him and put the State
back into the hands of the Re
publicans." The idea of a man
who has fattened at the public
crib ini positions with salary at
tachments, insulting the intelli
gence of white men with such
rot. So far as factionalism is
concerned. we are glad that is it
an end, and- that men can be
elected to office without clinging
to the coat-tails of- some popular,
idol. The principles of the Re
form movement are here to stay,
we are as loyal to them as we
ever were, but we are heartily
sick of a gang of pap-suckers
who did nothing for the Reform
cause until they wanted to land
at the political lunch counter
they were not seen or heard from
while the battle was thick and
fast, but when the smoke clear
ed away they could be found
going over the field looking for
what they could pick up.
It was the same way when we
were fighting to place in su
premacy the white man, these
political microbes now infesting
the body politic, attempting to
cast opprobrium upon our politi
-cal loyalty, by whispering about
that "A ppelt is a Republican."
What nerve? There may be a
few men in this county who have
*been so unfortunate as to not
be able to read and write,
who can be fooled by such
stuff, but if they will think
just two years back, they will
come to the conclusion that if
"Appelt is a Republican" now,
he must have been two years
ago when he helped snatch from
the burning brands of defeat
some who are now questioning
his loyalty to the Reform cause
and the Democratic party. Ap
pelt does not want to be elected
as a Reformer or a Conservative,
those two things are in the past
except with a few pap-suckers,
if he cannot be elected upon his
merit, and as a true and loyal
Democrat, he does want the sup
port of the people.
Then we are informed that it
is being told about. that "Appelt
has spent two thousand dollars
to buy his election." This is very
absurd,but as it is being told and
it might be believed by some we
herewith state that "Appelt has
never in his life ever bought a
vote, either with money or whis
key. That he does not permit
his place of business to become'
a hole to dish out liquor for can
didates on or before election
days,-naor does he sanction any
such methods. Appelt has a
family to support, and has no
money to spend on political
dead-beats. But, says another
wretch "Appelt paid a party $25
for a certain club and was glad
that he got it so cheap." This
is false, but if Appelt had bought
that club or even a voter,- he
would had conscience enough to
have paid out good United States
money and not fooled anybody
with depreciated coin.
There is another report that is
being circulated, but the nature
of it is such, our attorney advises
us not to make mention of it in
the newspaper at present, but af
ter the election is over,the party
circulating the report being fin
ancially responsible, the matter
can be investigated by a jury of
twelve men, and should they
render a verdict, the amount re
covered will be turned into the
fund for white schools in the
nesses whose characters are
beyond question who will, if
summoned, tell exactly what
was said by the party who was
circulating the report. Under
the law the man circulating a
slander is equally responsible
with the originator.
Tis bad, wretchedly bad when
men must seek office at the ex
pense of another's character, but
we are not going to be inveighed
into a personal collision, as in
our judgment we have more at
stake for the sake of our friends
than to permit our enemies to
lead us off.
So far as the rumors are con
cerned, we care not a snap for
them, and we defy those who
originate them, we defy the
cliques, clans and combinations,
whether they be politicians or
members of a Trust. We are
dependent on the people and
claim to be their candidate, and
if we cannot be the people's can
didate, God knows we do not
want to go back to the Senate.
We want to assert here and
now, that we have not employed
a single soul to electioneer for
us, nor will we, but we depend
entirely upon our friends to be
at the pols and see that every
ticket is honestly read and count
ed and ti-at no frauds are com
WAS IT SO INTENDED t
We note a published state
ment, with reference to the dis
tribution of the "Artificial Limb
Fund" which shows the number
of beneficiaries in each county.
The general assembly made an
appropriation of $2000 for the
purpose of giving as we sup
posed, aid to purchase artificial
limbs for those confederate sol
diers who were not able to buy
these limbs for themselves. In
our opinion the lawmakers in
tended this fund to be applied in
the same manner as the pension
fund-to indigent confederate
soldiers; we do not believe it was
ever intended to give this money
to men of means-to men who
have grown fat in lucrative of
fices, men who have been the
recipients of public pap ever
since the Democratic party was
restored to power. We say we
do not believe the lawmakers
ever intended that class to take
advantage of this benevolent
appropriation. What do we find?
In Clarendon county only one
man on the list of those entitled,
and he is a man of considerable
property and has held lucrative
public positions. He lost an
arm in the war, it is true, but if
the law was enacted to help in
digent persons as we believe it
was, whether the language of
the Act says so or not, only in
digent persons should be the1
beneficiaries. There is at least
one other man in the county that
lost a leg in the war who is very,
very poor, but his name does
not appear in the list of those
entitled to a part of the appro
priation for lost limbs. Why
this discrimination? But when
we make a close examination of
that "Artificial Limb" list, to
see who will draw th-is money,
we find, the names of R. H. Jen
nings, who is drawing a salary
of $1,900 a year as State Treas
urer, J. W. Floyd another State
officer and now a candidate for
Congress, J. F. Lyon, holding a
very lucrative position in the
State Treasurer's office; we can
not help but think the gen
ral assembly made a grave mis
take when it did not make the
Act so explicit, that it would
have been utterly impossible for
these patriots, who are constant
ty shaking their empty sleeves
: any and all occasions, urging
that something be done for the
needy confederate soldier, fromn
baking advantage of the word
ing of the Act to reap benefits
themselves and thus lessening
the amount which should go to
those in need.
South Carolina has not done
is much for her confederate sol
liers as some States, simply be
ause of her inability, but she
tried with her pension appropri
tions, to help the needy ones.
and if only the needy were help
ad, to $200,000 appropriated
would give each of them consid
arable aid. But is this fund diis
ributed as the law intends? Is
there discrimination and pa
iality shown? The people know.
The pension law is explicit as tc
who shall be entitled to the ben
afits, but we hear complaints
Erom every quarter, that persons
are on the pension list who
hould not be there, and others
are wrongly classed.
The Act providing for artifi
ial limbs, may not forbid a mil
ionaire from drawing pay, but
ur contention is, that those who
were instrumental in getting thls
Act passed, pleaded for this
money to aid confederate sol
liers to get an arm or a leg so
they could go out an earn a livli
hood, and we venture to say,
Lad they hinted, that such men
is those holding high office, or
nen of affluence would draw this
money, not a cent would have
been appropriated, or the Act
would have been so worded as
to keep these men out.
Among the men known to us,
whose names appear as having
Irawn this money for artificial
imbs, not one of them have
purchased a limb, nor do we be

MEET THE HIGH PRICE OF MEAT
how Farmers Can Make Money Out o!
Cattle. The Best Food Right at Home.
What makes the price of beef sC
high? The price of anything is higli
either because the demand outstrip:
the supply, or because of some combi
nation of dealers to artificially raise
But whether a price is naturally or
artificially high, the remedy is the
same-greater production on an inde
pendent basis. Fortunately for con
sumers of beef, and fortunately for the
southern farmer, there is no trust or
combination that can prevent a most
lavish production of beef, if only the
way is pointed out.
The breeding of cattle on a farm, at
lrest in an unsystematic manner, is
na:tural and almost spontaneous. But
in the absence of some systematic way
to follow up the subject, and select the
pi n.per animals, and care for them
through the winter, and finally prepare
them to make fat, tender beef, there

hul.s. The meal and hulls are offered
just as you want them by the Southern
Cotton Oil company, of the Carolinas
and Georgia, and may be bought at
any of the local mills or from head
quar:ers at Columbia, S. C., Atlanta,
Ga.. Savannt.h, Ga., or Charlotte,
N. C. Mixed in the proper proportion,
this makes the most nutritious and ac
ceptable feed that is now available. It
is a feed, which by varying the propor
tions will answer equally well for a
sustaining ration or for a fattening
ration. It contains all the ingredients
of nutrition, namely, fat, nitrogen and
carbohydrates. The cotton seed meal
contains fat and nitrogen and the hull
A good sustaining ration is made up
of 24 pounds of hulls and 4 pounds of
meal per day, and a good fattening
ration is 20 pounds of hulls and 5
pounds of meal. These proportions In
both cases must be varied to suit in
dividual cases, according to the con
dition and taste of the animal. In
fattening cattle, the ration should be
gin with more hulls and less meal and
the proportion of meal gradually in
creased. A steer may be fattdned and
put in good condition for the market
on 400 pounds of cotton seed meal and
one ton of hulls. At average prices,
the cost of this feed in the southern
States would be about $9.00.
There is great profit in fattening
beef for the market, even at ordinary
prices, but at present the industry
should prove unusually attractive. The
following estimate of the profit that
can easily be made in this business is
taken from a book which has been
carefully prepared on this subject,
"Cotton and Cotton Oil," by D. A.

The Author's Profound Respect For
the Feelings of Others.
In the old days when Frank RI.
Stockton was my associate in editing
Hearth and Home he invented or cre
ated a Marcus Aurelius of his own In
the person of an imaginary office boy.
Every week he would fill a column or
two with a grotesque account of the
doings and sayings of his fictitious
Marcus Aurelius. At last the worm
turned. Our actual office boy, a youth
of unusual seriousness, requested him
to stop the Marcus Aurelius humor.
"So you have taken it seriously?"
asked Mr. Stockton.
"Well, you see, all my friends laugh
at mue about it, and it hurts," answered
the office boy.
"I am sorry," said Mr. Stockton.
"You are a good, honest and faithful
office boy. I had no thought of hurting
your feelings, and I shall write no more
about Marcus Aurelius."
Here was an indication of the rare
character of the man. His respect for
the feelings of others was profound.
His tenderness toward them was a
most lovable characteristic of the man.
It ran through all his conduct. He nev

abounding charity and love for all his

I bequeath to my children Scrofula with all its
attendant horrors, humiliation and suffering. This is a
strange legacy to leave to posterity ; a heavy burden to
place upon the shoulders of the young.
This treacherous disease dwarfs the body and hinders
the growth and development of the faculties, and the
child born of blood poison, or scrofula-tainted parentage,
is poorly equipped for life's duties.
Scrofula is a disease with numerous and varied
symptoms ; enlarged glands or tumors about the neck
and armpits, catarrh of the head, weak eyes and dreadful
skin eruptions upon different parts of the body show the
presence of tubercular or serofulous matter in the blood. This dangerous
and stealthy disease entrenches itself securely in the system and attacks
the bones and tissues, destroys the red corpuscles of the blood, resulting in
white swelling, a pallid, waxy appearance of the skin, loss of strength and
a gradual wasting away of the body.
S. S. S. combines both purifying and tonic properties, and is guaran
teed entirely vegetable, making it the ideal remedy in
all scrofulous affections. It purifies the deteriorated
blood, makes it rich and strong and a complete and
permanent cure is soon effected. S. S. S. improves
the digestion and assimilation of food, restores the
lost properties to the blood and quickens the circulation, bringing a healthy
color to the skin and vigor to.the weak and emaciated body.

help you in every possible way to regain your health. Book on blood and
