If South Carolina is satisfied
with her Senators no outsider should
For the first time since the civil
war there is not a colored man in
It is said that Hon. A. W. Stov
all, of Jackson, will be a candidate
for Dircuit Judge of this district.
It will tax an active mind and
deplete a well-tilled purse to ''re
member the poor" this Christmas;
but they must not be forgotten.
Speaker, Henderson announced
the House committees Tuesday.
Representative Patterson was assign
ed to the committee on Insular Af.
fairs, which will be the most im
portant committee this session.
A meeting, held in Chicago Sun
day night to protect against the
methods of Great Uritain in the
South African war, was attended by
thousands, h'or the relief of the
Btricken women and children in tht
South African camps, contributions
were asked and nearly six thousand
dollars were received.
It is a fact that protected manu
facturers in the United States sell
their products cheaper to foreigners
than to home people. Of course,
they put the price to the highest
limit in every market; but if they
have competition in a foreign mar
ket they can make a profit by sell
ing for less 'ban they extort from
American consumers', who are shut
out from the benefits of competition
by the tariff. These are truths
which the people should remember,
and they should not forget that the
republican party is responsible for
this coudition of affairs.
At the January term of Quarter
ly Court, oidy a few weeks off,
among other important business to
be transacted will be the election of
a Chairman. The present incumb
ent, Esquire W. J. Cox, will be a
candidate for re-election. So far
we have heard of no opposition,
and this fact alone is sufficient evi
dence to prove that Chairman Cox
has discharged the duties of the po
sition in a satisfactory manner. For
two terms he has filled the responsi
ble and important place, during
which time he has zealously guarded
the county's interests. His re-election
by acclamation would be a
compliment well deserved.
The car loads of holly recently
shipped from the neigh -oi hood of
Bolivar, have been purchased at
ridiculously low prices, considering
the fancy figures it commands in the
market. The smallest sprig is sold
on streets of the larger cities of the
north for teu cents, while here a
crate will brinir little above that
paltry sum. Christmas in the north
without holly would be like the 4th
of July minus the fireworks. Ke
mote from its growth, children are
told all sorts of things about it
that it is a fairv bcrrv from Santa
Clausland, brought by reindeers on
an early journey. Always popular,
the use of holly is more extensive
than ever. The brilliant green leaf
and gaudy little berry attract atten
tion, aud admiration everywhere. It
holds its color for two months, and
"Deeds only to be removed when
Easter favorites drive it from its
point of vantage. This is the home
of the holly, but our people do not
seem to appreciate its worth. Here
after, those who sell from the tree
should demand something in the
neighborhood of a fair price. They
can get it.
A Million Voices
Could hardly express the thanks
of Homer Hall, of West Point, la.
Listen why: A severe cold had set
tled on his lungs, causing a most ob
stinate cough. Several physicians
said he had cjnsumpliou, but could
not help him. When all thought he
was doomed he began to use Dr;
King's New Discovery for Consump-
tion and writes: "It completely
cured me and saved my life. I now
cov weigh 227 pounds." It is positively
sickL gurauteed for coughs, colds and
long troubles. Price, 50c and $1.00.

A New Remedy.
The old friends of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will be pleased to
know that the manufacturers of that
preparation have gotten out a new
remedy called Chamberlaud's Stom
ach and Liver Tablets, and that it is
meeting with much success in the
treatment of constipation, bilious
ness, sick headache, impaired diges
tion and like disorders. These Tab
lets are easier to take and more
pleasant in effect than pills; then
they not only move the bowels, but
improve the appetite and correct any
disorders ot the stomach and liver.

Ut polished manners
and preDOB.-essina appearance, he
soon worked into the good graces
of the people, who congratulated
themselves upon securing the citi
zenship of such an estimable gen
tlemm. He had entre to every
home and was always welcomed
He passed as a widower, and was
extremely polite and courteous, es
pecially to the ladies, in whose
company when not professionally
engaged much of his time was
spent. Eventually he became en
gaged. In the mean time rumors
began to be circulated concerning
his past history. The engagement
was broken off and an investigation
disclosed, so it is said, that Dr.
Seymour had a living wile, a resi-
dent of Madison County, Ga ; that
he deserted her in Elbert County,
Ga., at the beginning of the Span-
ish war and had not since been
heard from. He was confronted
with this evidence at hand and
threatened with a severe whipping,
He denied the statements until fui-
ther proof was produced, when he
feigned sickness, went to his room,
remaining there several days, and
left secretly on the east-bound train
over the Southern road Friday
night. His whereabouts are un
