And peep ut us at lust.
AH WO watch the countenance of
Tho Knitter, and uotc tho ohango of

Wo know tho dostiny of his dynasty

Tho harvest is ripening
And we know it will bo large,
But Farmer Till tuan is capable
Of taking it in charge.
We know wo oro not mistaken,
For tho signs aro too true,
I Tho old party tiiu?t give away
And make room for thc new.
It is no uso for them to fuss,
Or to make a great cry,
For h ??tory records it thus,
For axes gone by.
Nature teaches us a lesson
That should never bc forgot,
That evil must perish
And its triumph remembered not.
Thc sooner it is discarded
And its stain wiped away,
Tho moro our posterity will
Commend us in their day.

And bell-interest the ouuso

Mr. Hugh Me La ur in i? nt his
home quite sick. Ho is not only
much missed ut the store in which
he has so politely served for several
years, but '?Bright eyes" is well
nigh disconsolate,
?Saturday, about noon, tho cook's
house on Prof. S. H. Zimmerman's
lot was discoverod to bo on lire,
but the fi rr had ?tl ready gained
such bea I way that no effort was
niado to save the building, which
was soon reduced to ashes. Neigh
bors and friends worked hard to
savo the barn, &c, which were in
close proximity to the burning
house, and in this thoy were suc
cessful. The accident, supp?t o i to
hayo resulted from the smoulder
ing coals left on the hearth, is
much regretted. Prof. Z. was sick
at the time of the calamity-ie
to-day too ill to teach.
Several persons from this vicini
ty went to Laurinburg yesterday
to hear the evangelist, ".Bill" Kite,
who is holding a sories ot'meetings
at that place. We would rejoice
to hear that our young people who
went had been so thoroughly awa
kened that they would come homo
prepared to hold tho prayer-meet
ings that McOolJ should have each
Sunday night. A'MJnion" prayer
meeting is needed here, and such
services, by the blessing of God,
would surely bo productivo of much
good. A place that can build two
churches in aa many years, can
surely furnish christian /.eal to
conduct a weekly prayer meeting.
We do hopo tho christian men of
this place-stewards, elders, dea
cons and laymen, too, will take
this matter in hand.
Mr, Alex. Jones, tho assistant of
Mr. A. D. (Jonner, has just brought
his bride, one of Maxton'* clever
young ladies, to this place. A
long and a happy life to the young
couple.
Mr. .-. Zack a ry has moved his
family here for hu indefinite time.
Wo big the strangers welcome.
Mr.-Vick has a prosperous
trade in shoe and harness making,
and can always be found at his
place ol' business roady to please
timi accommodate his customers.
The literary club at Tatum is
succeeding beyond tho most san
guine expectations of its origina

will have it, *'suggo?tingH;Mr. Till

injured the cause of the far hi o rs more
seriously than all tho oppf?jitiou of it'e
enemies could possibly lave, done
lt hus lifted Capt. Tillman Jibuvo thc
cause, which is a just and ii loritoriotu
one, and concentrates lilt-fire of itf
cneniies upon him. Ho implore vul
nerable than the causo \h loads, 01
thiuks he leads. This aet'?jip,vof thi
Convention is regarded cv^.ywhere it
the Stale by tho moro CfL?unhUivt
element of the Democrat!' party >.u
the climax of a bitter);-ul reason inj
class antagonism. J.
The farmers' movepicnt Vs now bo

lid tho dangirof a spilt it^tVi; ranks
years ago degenerated into the mor
tool of Mahone, the party in th?
St'.tte was rent asunder and histor;
will repeat itself.
Unlike many opponents of Mi
Tillman, Wo do not doubt his sincerit
or bis allegiance i 1 .s party, .and w
hope the work to w .lioli men of sens
and patriotism in tho State will di rot
thci v energies will he that of kcepiu
bitterness down in the coming iigh
Yet it is of vital interest that the in
tion of the late Convention should J
repudiated by such mi overwhelm i ti
vote ns to Jbrever preclude in the fi
turo a repetition of thc exlrnordioui
methods just resorted to by Mr. Til
man lo have himself foisted upon ot
people as a candidate.
K0RK-8TAI.LINO.
The Johnston (Kdgotleld) Mom ti
says thc true object of the farmers
holding Ibo March Convention was
give Tillman all "undorliold.''
THE KA RM KAR IlAVK TIIK RIGHT,
[Orjrn;ol)iir? Times and Democrat.]
The members of the Convention a
strictly within their rights in nssei
ing their views upon public matte
and in making every effort to ha
their candidates nominated by t
regular Democratic Convention, ni
tiny attempt to reno them out of t
party for asserting these inalienal
rights Wobul not only be disingom;
ami dishonorable, but such a cnn
is liable lb redound upon thc hon
of those so short-sighted as to rest
tt) such methods, since it would
tract to the movement the sympat
of those everywhere who believe
free speech anti fair piny." Lot
have ii full and free discussion ol' I
issues of the day before Ibo pop
anti let them decide who shall

The ?loporter believes that
nomination or ' suggestion" of a tic
by thc Farmers' Convention is ti nw
lt further believes that putting i

is ail impolitic. We fear that hy i

Lioutounin) Governor.
We do not, think Mr. Tillman is
tho pr?ner 1 injin tobo Governor of
tho whole' 'people, and we aro sorry
thatljhe farmers did not choose an.
othe?^j) their standard beorcr.
ThirGovernor of a Stato should
represent tho whole people, and ho
should not bo at war with any class of
citizens. Ito.should bo a man who is
friendly to all, and who in turn lins
tho good will of all .
Whoa it is known that tho Stato. is
full of good mon who would not bo
objectionable to any class of our fel
low-Citizens, it seems that a proper
resf.eot for their neighbors should
have prompted tho farmers to nomi
nate a mau who would not only bs
fai uful to them, but who would not
bc objectionable to any considerable
portion of the popul?.
If. tho i?. have nominated a
man who is objectionable to a large
number pf the people, they have com
mitted np, error, which is fully-ns
grievous fis any of which the farmers
now complain.
?NO CAjNUlDATK Or TUN FAR MRUS,
ii W [Nowborry Obaorvor.J
lc carpi ol bo claimed, with any show
of rtyvsnii, that Tillman is thc candi
du{to o?jlho farmers. His nominutiou
iflBjHp 'attempt uf a faction lo force
lum down tjio throats of oilier farmer?
and. till: other citizens forming the
Democratic party of tho State. It is
an attempt to mako a man Oovortioi
whom; tiiu people do not want for Gov
ernor, i And, as wo said before, wo do
not bolievu the people will stand it.
A l'Util AVERAGE UOVKIINOR
[Manning Times.]
Tillman is not our favorito for gov
ornor, hut, ns wo have before said, w<
beliovo that he would mako a goce
governor, and that if olected his rec
Ord as governor will comparu favor"
nilly with othor governors. Ho is i
good, strong, uncompromising Demo
erat, n man of lino purls, and wouh
wo bcliev? mako a fair avorngo gov
ornqr.
But what docs tho nominatioi
nio?'ui?) ,Doos it inauro Tillman's elco
lion ? ; We not so regard it. Tb
convention has pledged itsolf to abbi

The March convention could do noll
ing more than suggest, und did il
not li big more, and it is pledged I
abide, the result of tho Democrat
State cony-union. But will they do i
is thc question we hear asked by til
Opposition. Of course they ? i I
Tillman and the other lenders ure ri
Democrats, and while they will mal

the charge so repeatedly hurled agni
its members, that they wero sim
office-seekers.
Tho nomi nco for Governor, Bei

boroo tin brunt of many a storm,
against him there has been lovt
every ? pit h Ct that has ever been fi
nt a pol i I ?cia n in this State. Ile
determined and untiring worker,
personal courage and his honesty <
not he seriously questioned, while
responsibility for tho recent fem
prese ul ment of tho Edgelieltl gi
jury stumps him ns a just mau. '
By his friends he ia styled a pati
by his opponents n demagogue
If this was a govorntneut any o
than by tho people, thc oojecl
urged ugninsl Ti tl iii un would bo st

ag'gistn has been urged ngains
many that it luis lesa weight tba
would bo thought to have.
To John Adams and his frit
Thomas Jefferson w??8 probably a
rtsentativo demngoguo ; to Jt

unquestionably a demagogue,
Tillman may, thoroforo, profit by

Wo thought tho culling of this con?
vention an unwiso stop, and hu vc had
nu icanon to chango our mind. But
on th* contrary, tho nominations
which woro rondo servo to confirm our
opinion as previously oxprosaod, Tliero
waa no necessity for this con vont ion,
and wo think it exceedingly doubtful
if any good will result from it.

? Cant. G. W. Shell, Chninnan and
others, Executive Committee of tho
Farmers' Association - Gentlemen :
Havdng wejted a rcasonnblo time IV
au official notification Of tho action of
tho March Convention in placing my
nnmo beforo tho people as a candidate
for tho position of Lieutenant Gcvor
nor, and not having received snob
notice, I deem it not improper to nd
dress this communication to you.
While I fully appreciate tho unso
licited compliment which lins boen
paid mo and desiro to ox press my
thanks for this evidence of confidence,
yet I nm satisfied my name wns put
forward under a misapprehension.
It cannot bo doubted that the purpose
of tho convention was to placo upon
the ticket mon who wore in full sym
pathy with the lotter of tho Chairman
of tho Exouutive Committee of thc
Farmers' Association (Capt. Sholl)
in calling tho Convention together
men who fully endorsed tho platform
adopted and who could ami would
canvass tho State upon tho issuos
therein made.
Without-referring to any objections
I had to the letter of Capt. Shellii or
my viow8 ns to the policy of making
nominations nt this tiipo, it will, be
sufllci.ent for me to say that ,~ uojnot
f?llt/ endorso; tim platform, ami for
uus;dnu .oiiijur HUrneVut' ^foo,,^ ca>i=. y
not eUtor upon a canviee, iii ilt\sup
portas required by the lim section
of the platform.
Injustice, thereforo, to myself, as
well as in justice to the body whose
executive you aro, I beg leave to
withdraw my name from the ticket
suggested. This action will also re
lievo you of all ombarrr. oincut in
substituting a man who will represent
tho views which prevailed in tho con
vention.
It is but proper for me to say here
that I am wholly KO itif. e 1 with th?
agricultural interests of the State, and
am in foll sympathy with thc farmers
in their efforts to hotter their condi
tion, and to this end am heartily in
favor of their taking an active part
in the control of legislation, both
Federal and State ; but all must ad
mit that honest differences of opinion,
as to the lucan? nod measures which
will furnish the needed relief, may
well exist between men actuated by
the best motives and seeking tho ac
complishment of the same ends.
I am, gentlemen, very truly and
respectfully yours,

HovflO Sonso on No\vf.p iporu.
I could preach sermons upon tho
everlasting blessings of a good
newspaper. A good newspaper is
the greatest temporal blessing that
God had gt von to the people of
this country. In the first place all
the people road tho newspapers,
and then the newspapers furnish
the greater portion of the reading
of tho people. They don't read
books Tho'Ul people look for tho
deaths, the Ming pooplo look for
tho marriage*), and those who aro
unemployed read the want adver
tisements. Great libraries mako a
few intelligent men and women,
but the.newspapers lift the nation
into sunlight. My Mea of a good
newspaper is a mirror of lifo itself.
Some pooplo complain because tho
evil of tho world is reportod aa
woll as tho good. The ovil must bo
reportod as woll as tho good, or
how will wo know what to guard
ourselves against or what to
reform? There is tv chance for
discrimination as to how much
space shall bc given to such things
as prize fights, but tho newspaper
that morely presents tho fair and
beautiful timi bright, sunny sido
of lifo is a misrepresentation. That
family is best qualified for tho
d ti tics of life who have told to
them not only what good thero
is in the world but tho ovil, and
is told to select tho good and reject
the ovil.-Dr. Talmage.

make out their orders for cotton
bagging immediately, give thom
