"Did'it ever occur to the intelli
gout allinhc'i4 of South Carolina,
if a tllird Party is procipitated oin
Souti Carolina, fhat while it will
bring the negro back into polities,
restore the old ring-rule faction to
power, and wreck tho Allianco, as
was done in Georgia. At tho samo
time it will give tho Cotton Plant
a propinence and notoriety that it
does not now enjoy, and incroaso
the anbscription list of that papor.
Perhaps tis. is the milk in tho
. The above clipping from tho
Piedmont Headlight is very sug
gestive and should causo all i a ncet
men to seriously think at this time.

necessarily involved, should be
eliminatod from the discussion.
The issuos of-tho last Prosidential
election should niot bo inljoted inl
to the adjustmont of Stato mat
tors, and all third party talk by
any one at this tio is ulmocesa

broach. The differences amotng
loaders aid spirants can ho set
tied among the IRoformers, and the
timo and man iinor of such a set tie

it is proper and inl order for anly

judgment, to such an end, btl
there is Ito occasion for h ittterness
or impeachieni t. of m o t i e s.
Whilo we have already given our
views and have dithlred with the
Cotton Plant, we have never onice

TRAPPING AN AUDIENO.

Some years ago an eccentrio genus,
the Rev. Thomas P. Hunt, used give
temperance lectures. One night he an.
ounced that he would lecture at a car.
Wun Pennsylvania town. Now, temper.
mo was not in favor among the male
portion of that burg.
The women, however, were all for the
'pledge," and consequently on Hunt's
irst visit not a man showed himself.
rhe benches were pretty well filled with
somen, though, and Hunt commenced.

pointed the people began to arrive, and
when Hunt hobbled down the aisle the
building was completely filled with men.
rhe old follow looked about, chuckled
nd said in a low voice, "Hogs, I've got
you now I"
The audience stared.
"Aha, hogs, I've got you nowl" ho re
After the crowd had got quiet a little
the lecturer said:
"Friends, you wanted to know what I
meant by saying, 'Hogg, I've got you
now!' and I'll tell you. - Out west the
hogs run wild, and when folks get out
of meat they catch a young pig, put a
strap under his body and hitch him to a
young sapling that will just swing him
from the ground nicely. Of course he
squeals and raises a rumpus, when all
the old hogs gather around to see what
is the matter, and then they shoot them
at their leisure. Last night I hung a pig
up. I h1ur1t It a little, and it squealed.
The old hogs have turned out tonight to
see the fun, and I'll roast you."
And so ho did, pitching into their
favorite vice with much evident relish
and gusto.-Anerican Homo Life.

The following is told by Boniface De
Witt of tho Riggs House:
"Dr. Talmage was preaching at Belle
ville, N. J., somo years ago, and .one
wetek he made up his mind to go'into the
pulpit the next Sunday without notes or
nmoranda of what he was going to say.
IIe minorized his sermon and believed
e h:id it completely at lis tongue's end.
SO Sada night ho went to the church
preuy well fortified with confidence.
"in ihM o days in that section of Jer
scy churchos and hotels and many pri
Vite resideuces were equinped with pri
vato gas machines, and the church where
Talmage, was to hold forth had one too.
W hen lie got into the pulpit after con
ducting the preliminary services all
right, ho gave out his text. Then he was
horrified to find that he couldn't think of
a thing to say. le repeated the text a
seconi- time, and yet his ideas failed to

ulowly and impressively to announce his
text a third time. As ho reached the
last word and the perspiration of dread
and Eh:i1n0 wao lhgimnning to start, the
gas went <.ut iad p!unged the place into
utter darknss. There w-a- no other
means for lighting the edifice, and when
it was announced that tho gas machine

have heard him say that ho never did so
before or since with greater fervor or
thankfulness of spirit. "-Washington
Molting has its analogy throughout
the animal kingdom. We indeed molt
invisibly, arc continuously shedding our
scales, but there are somec animals that
get throu gh this process even more quick
ly thant do birds-as, for instance, tho
shedding of the skin as a whole by the
newt, eft and snake.
Sir James Paget has noted that some
people have a few extra long hairs grow
ing out from the general mass of the
eyebrows. The few long hairs are repre
sentativeos of a permanent condition in
the chimpanzee and some baboons. They
grow out separately from the general
hairy miass over the superciliary ridges.
Darwin notes as a significant fact that
the'palma of the hands and the soles of
the feet of man are quite naked of hairs,
like the inferior surfaces of all four ex
tremities in most of the lower animals.
Something abont the ear: The lobule
of the ear is peOculiar to man. There ls,
howvever, a rudiment of it in the gorilla.
Happy gorilla-and man!
About the brain of man and apes: The
whole comparison is one of degree, and
in the case of thme bushman's brain with
that of a well developed ape the corn
parison becemois nearly equal. In truth,
there are no specific distinctions betweerm
the brain of the ape and that of man.

Never condemn your neighbor un
heard, however many the accusations
which may be preferred against him.
Every story has two ways of being told,
and justice requires that you should hear
the defense as wvell as the accusation, and
remember that the malignity of enemies
may place you in a similar predicament.
