And of his mighty arm,
Jiul then yoti know it is fashion now
To praiso your cotton farm.
I go to sec my neighbor man,
And hear him tell his yarns ;
Tho next thing to my huaith, you know,
ls how is your cotton farm ?
God's word is powerful you kuow.
And sufficient to ultu ni,
But then you kuow it will bo so,
So how is your cotton farm?
I go down to tho nearest store,
Tho nowa I dCfiro lo hain ;
Tho next thing to howdy do
Is how is your cotton farm ?
Tho poor you know must make a ?how,
And boss their owu coucoru,
They rent u mulo, nod bugcy too,
And then rub a cotton farm.
If all tho christians in this world 1
Could cortainly be alarmed, (
They would study more about their soul.?, 1
And less about their cotton farm. !

They will push their hoes and plow all ,

And at night they feel careworn ;
Before they will bing and praise God's

They will praise their cotton farms.

Dear Brethren :-Tho nocossity and
importance of the Sunday School to the
Church and to the country need no do
uions! ratiou . Tho fulute of loth do
peuds largely upon tho character of tho
Sunday School work of tho prcsout.
livery christian man and icoman should
encourage and join all legitimate cjj'orts
?ioincrease thc. vnmhr.v.: mu?. <?f?h\}%?A?
\thC Sunday Schools of our (State.
Tho Interdenominational Sunday
School Association, through Execu
tive Committee, heroby appeals lo all
workers, of whatever name, in all parts
of tho State, for sympathy and co-opcra
lion. Our motto is: "The linton of all
Christians for tho salvation of all o'hers."
Our aim and object: (I) "A Sunday
School within reach of every home in
our .itatc. (2) A Convention, at lea3t
once each year, withiu reach of every
Sunday School Teacher. (3) A work
ing Sunday School Organizition in every
County and Township. (I) Thc visita
tion ol our houso to invite all to Church
and Sunday School, and lo make known
to all Cod's free oiler of all Salvation
through .Jesus Christ."
Wc are greatly encouraged by thc
successor last year's work. Ten new '
County Organizations were effected,
making the total number of organized
j counties twenty two. One ol thc re?
waining counties has already organized
this year, leaving unorganized only
twelve, viz; Oconee, Greenville, Abbe
ville, York, Chester. Fairfield, Horry,
Georgetown, Beaufort, Darlington, Sum
ter and Florence. Thc prospects tor the
work before us were never more encour
aging and we hope to extend thc work
of organization in all thc remaining
counties during thc present year.
In a lew counties there exist Sunday
School Conventions, Unions or Coaler
enees, held under thc auspices of thc
separate denominations, and tn such
cases workers may be lound who hesi
tate to engage in our Interdenomina
tional Conventions, To all such breth
ren wc desire to say that there is no con
flict or antagonism whatever between
thc two. Both the denominational and
the interdenominational movements aim
at thc very same results-better and
more effective Sunday School work.
Wherever it is desi ried and thought best
by those interested to hold the denOmL
'national meetings let it be done, and we
bid all such God's speed. But wc earn
estly beg that in addition, you will also
unite with the brethren of other dc?
nominations in ?his work, and by organ
ization, contact and discussion, give
and receive*the benefits ol the wisdom,
I methods and experience ol all for stim
ulation and profit in your own home
work. Thus, too, wc are brought into
intimate and harmonious relations with
the great International Organization
which is encircling thc globe. Organi
zation, systematic and thorough, is our
aim; and wc do not want to ccai? our
effoiis until every township in thc S:ate
basan cflcctive organization, with coins
mittccs actively at work visiting every
house.
The late Slate Convention was a most
interesting and profitable meeting. It
instructed the Executive Committee to
employ an efficient, consecrated Chris.
tum man as Organizer, tom0 >nto the
Held and organize first the counties re
maining unorganized, and dsit as Jar
as he can thc other counties.
The Committee, after prayerfully and
carelully considering the irater, have
elected Mr. C. L. Kike, of Ladens, S. C.
as such Organ?7er, and they recommend
him to the hearts and hordes of the
friends of the Sunday School cause in
the Stalo. Give him your .)ntirc sym*
pathy and support. He con cS among
you not his or for our glory, PUt for that
of our common Lord and Sa>'0,lr?
We request all Sunday Scl?ol Super*
intendents throughout the pilate to as
sist us in the collection oj! complete
Sunday School statistics itu ring- the
next few months. These st.leslies are
called for hy thc United Stag's Census

Now, dear friends and bremen of ah
d?nominations, that have tp ,ovc of
God in your hearts, give i4 >'Our en

A CARKFUI, HKVIKW 1?V A KAHMUK,
MR. EDITOR :
A farmer wlio ie not in sympathy
with tho present political agitation;
known a? tho "farmers' movement/
cnn feo inconsistence*} and tilings that
are unjust, both in the movement it
self and those that lead it ; and, with
no intention of abusing anybody,
would direct tho attention of your
renders to a few of them.
It is inconsistent in Capt. Tillman
to consent to enter tho race for the
Governorship, when ho has persist
ently said for thc last four or five
years that he did not want atty ofjice
lie ''new that he was laying himself
Hablo to tho ohrtrgo of ?noonalntohoy
whoa in his speech at Columbia he
said, "There will bo those ready to
proclaim from the housetop : 'There, ?
- L. \- i-.i:....
'.uni )'"' r>V, liv lino DOUli II .in 11 ii;;
office all tho timo.' It is inconsisU
ont for men like Capt. She1-!, who
hayo hohl office, and now holding
them, aud who wish to continue
doing the same, to cry out against tho
iniquity of "aristocratic rings." //'
they believe in the doctrine of "rota
lion in office," why not bo consistent
and rotate themselves ? It is hardly
consistent for farmers to growl and
complain at tho existence of "rings'*
that they themselves have helped to
form; for ii' "aristocratic rings'' exist
uf nil thpv nen <?f iinrv.aair\r jnrt/}.t i/n
of material that the farmers by thoir
vote at primary elections and conven
tions, nominated, and heneo elected,
to office. Suppoao tliov elect all tho
officers, Sta to and County, from Till
itirin do\yn to Coroner, what gu iran
tee have."they that Tillman will no*,
hoad tho '"Stato House King'' and
bogia to put oi\ airs and feel aristo
cratic in tho Governor's chair? And
if tho county ofllcers heretofore elect
ed haVo formed "Court House rings,"
what is to* prevent those hereafter
clectcd^from doing likewise? Till
man and his followers do ?wt con-?
[jcieotioimly believe tho Democratic
party is corrupt ; neither do they
honestly bojioyo in the actual exist
ence of corrupt rings. All SUQII talk
is bosh, and they know it, but iirordcr
to reach the offnes, they have harped
rm that string, Boiled down, Till
maiiism is a fif ht of tho "outs" against
the "ins" . .' .
Ca])t. Tillltiau has made tho cjalm
nt "Iho/armers havo' been deni?d
{"?ir jA.v-:..\ - J$$sM 'Ul,~ .?1 ,!,n.
unjust. Since 1970 fourteen men
havo represen tn I our county in tho
lower house of Representatives, only
two of which number have been law
yera, and all the others wore farmers.
Tho lawyers were sau.siiod to serve
one term each, while some of the farm
ors have boen returned for two and
evin tliree terms. Our county offices
have been (il ed by farmers in about
the same proportion, and tho sumo
ratio would be shown for ell the
counties in the Striae, except Charles
ton, and perhaps Richland. Tho
Governors regularly elected have ali
heen farmers, except Thompson.
Simpson and .Shepard only filled ont
unexpired terms. And certainly a
majority of tho Sta Le officers hpvp
been taken from tho farms. The
farmers have, had an equitable share
of the offices, State and county, and
hy ii ir vote haye controlled the elec
'ion? in the State since 7(3, and there
fore they have not been denied politi
cal rights in regard to office holding ;
and if they have been discriminated
against in the Legislature, they alone
arc to blame, for they hove always
had a majority in the Legislate "e.
li is unjust to other classes of poo
pie in the Democratic party ?or the
farmers as a class to arrogate to
themselves the right to control the
affairs of the party. A farmers po
litical movement necessarily excludes
other classes from working with them
A farmer would not intrude himself
into a merchants' or lawyers' political
movement, and yet those classes have
the same right to organize themselves
andjclaitii thai the}/ are the Democrat
ic parly. I am sick of the sentiment
that seems to prevail throughout thc
land : "1 am a farmer, therefore 1
am entitled to this or that j" or, "bc
catHC we arc farmers, this or that
must be done for our special benefit."
Let the fai'mois get out of debt, rnise
their own supplies, pay cash for wh \t
they buy, get rich farwing, then they
would not ask our Coiigrcsmen te
pass Sub-Treasury Bills, nor cure
whether Tillman was Governor or not

Uly Mother'* Grave.
How often linve I visited that
lonely i.;,ot where motlier now lies.
Aud when J look down upon the
eilent tomb I can seo her gentle
spirit waving in tho beautiful sun
ny sky. And when I sit and think
of tho future it seems to me that
lifo ie but a shadowy, momentary
dream. And w..en I sit in solitary
attitude over the grave it seems to
me that your reporter ought to
be a bettor boy. Wo must not
too much grieve, she has met tho
common fate of us all, for sho ac
complished tho object by preparing
herself for another world. But
I look forward to meeting motlier
in those pearly mansions which
God has gone to proparo for us.
In all the world though friends sincere,
May al! Sc?lft to you as brothers ;
You'll never for a moment hear,
A voice so sweet as mother's.

and although in performing his
task ho is only influenced by a re
gard to bis own interest or by his
necessities, yet it an employment
which renders him truly the best
benefactor of tho community he
belongs to. All our pursuits must
give way to this. Tho hours he
devotes to learning must bc after

''.{? ' How to Toll a Counterfeit BjUl.-',
Talco a :United States bill of any 1
denomination and bold it', to tho
light,. and you will seo two linea
running along entirely aoross it
length, wiso. Upon examination
threads, a rod one and* blue one.
Every gonuin:; bill has thia mark
of genuineness. Without theao
marka a bill may bo put down as N
counterfeit, no matter how good tho
engraving on it ic. No papor mill
will dure make this sort of paper
and thia ia the government's only
protection on ila currency.
Take a quiet corner in tho even
ing time, and carefully think of tho
day which lins just parsed away and
whose history yon IK lp to make.
Review the deeds and words and
thoughts which U baa recorded
against your name. Measure each
of these by the standard of oppor
tunity. Contlemplato the relation
of days to eternity, and ponder up
on the certainty with which pres
ent exiatenco here ia advancing to
ward i m mort al i ty in heaven. Do
not forget to include a proper pro
portion of prayer. Try tins aa a
recipe for a good to-morrow.-Pitts

Imagine, if you can, a frozon fog
driven with the velocity of a hui

aa clear an idea of a blizzard as
you'll ever caro to get. Ita blind

Tho intenso cold brings at first tho
pain of freezing, then numbness,
then stupor, then a tense of bliss
