The muste ceased the cuttain rose,

But gased upon her lovely face
She sat two seats away.
Her cheeks like tinted apple bloora,

Nor oxes as blue as summer skies,

And as I gazed upon her face
There cane a look of pain.

"You will not and- one woman in a
hundred who is familiar with the rules
of heraldry," said a fashionable stationer.
"Ladies insist on having crests embossed
on their writing paper, even when I tell
them that they are permitted by the
usages of centuries to use only the arms.
A handsome woman came in the store
one day and said, 'Mr. D- , I wish you
would put a crest and arms on my paper.'
I knew it would be useless to argue
about the crest, and so I asked her,
'Have you any orest with you?' 'Oh, not
I haven't any,' she answered. 'You can
make a nice one, can't you?' I learned
that her husband was a grain dealer, so
for a crest I designed a sheaf of wheat.
For the arms I designed some hawk
heads on a shield, and she was delighted."
Women who are interestel In these
things should observe the regulations set
down for the use of spinster., married
women and widows. A specified frame
for the arms should be used by each.
The spinster is required to put her fam
ily arms into 0 diamond framo, with
very simple adornment. When a wom
an marries, the arms of her family must
be put on the same shield with the arms
of her husband. The shield is impaled,
the wife's arms occupying one position
and the husband'% the other. If she be
comes a widow, the frame for her arms
again assumes the form of a diamond,
symbolizing her unmarried state, while
her arms and the arms of her deceased
husband remain impaled as formerly.

DiSINFECTANTS.-The attentien
of horse owners are now called to
a subject of great. importance 'to
every man who owns a horse. The
crowded stables are the most in
need of disinfectants, the livery
stable is never liroperly kept un
less a liberal use of disinfectants
form one feature of its manage
ment, and no horso is safe when
confined in a stable with a large
number of strange horses, unless
this course is pursued. Distens
per, glanders and mange are often
lurking in the stable long before
the owner is aware of its presence.
whore stronge horses continually
come and go there is no assurance
that a diseased one has not been
among them. Glanders may exist
in an incipient form for weeks or
for months without being detected,
yet it is highly contagious all the
time. Tobacco, lime and sulphur
are the best disinfnctanto known
for stable purposos. Tobacco is
an antidote for glanders and dis.
tempor, and if a disinfectant for
those diseases thoro need be no
fear of the diseaso reaching the
sound animals. Tobacco will cure
glanders in its worse stage, often
when other remedies fail, and is
the only substance that can be ful
ly relied on as a disinfectant of
this disease. Some of the leaves
of tobacco burned in the stable
while the horse is present will work
wonders in keeping off disease and
greatly improve the hygiene con
dition of the buildings, and should
any infection be lurking there un
discovered, the tobacco smoke will
effectually drive it away; tobacco
does- not only change the qualities
of the infected atmosphere but its
virtue consists in its action upon
tho horso's systom, neutralizing
the poison, the very source of the
disease.
Sulphur is well known as a die
infectant of great worth for those
types of diseases which generat
foulness and putridity within th<
system. For this reason it shouk
be freely administered to the hors4
by fumigation to decided advan.
tpgo, when burned in the atmos.
phere, sulphurious gas is formed
which is of great value in counter
acting contagious influences; lime
is highly esteemed as a disinfec
tant to counteract the evil effects
of decomposition of vegetable mat.
ter, it should be placed in a ves
sel and kept wvet. It will neutral.
ize the odor and injurious gasses
arising from the floor of most all
stables. If a glandoed horse has
been in the stable the manger and
all parts of the stall where any of
the discharges from the nose of the
diseased horse could have been
left should be washed with strong
lime water, where it is known that
a contagion has lately existed in a
stable, tobacco may be relied on
as the only safeguard, though we
do not mean by this the additional
use of limoe and sulphur is to be
discarded. Keop finely pulverized
tobacco in the feeding trough for
some time afteor the contagion has
disappeared. This will make the
horse sneeze. Thus he will free
his nostrils of the virous or dis
charge from the nose of the dis
eased horse. Our next subject will
be the proper way to drench the
horse. WV. A. DILwvoRTH, V. S.

A Plan to Improve the Town of
Piekens.
The time has come in South Ca
rolina that a town that does not
maintain a graded school, or man
ufacture will diminish' in popula
tion andl business. For the pres
ent Pickens can't have the latter,
but can the formor, if an effort is
made by her citizens. There is
growing a (dosire andl puirpose to
educato, and parents will move to
places where there is the best fa
cilities for this purpose. Pickens
being the County site for the Coun
ty, and very heo a1 I h y location,
should be the chief place for edu
cation for Pickens County. Thor'e
fore a first-class school building'is
necessary, as the one we have lack
all of the essentials of a good one
Have had the following method in.
mind for some time for bnilding
up a fine school at Pickens.
IFirst, the people in the town of
Piokens should petition the Town
Council to have a bill nana4 as.
extending the incorporate limits
the next session of the Legislatuie
of the town to one mile, so as to
take in the writer and all others
residing within one mile of Court
House.. And in same petition ask
the Council to have another bill
passed authorizing and umpower
ing the Council to issue bonds to
be known as Pickens School Bonds
amounting to $3,000, running 20
years, v ith c o u p o n s-put these
bonds on the market and invest
the proceeds, with the sale of the
present house in a good brick build
ing adapted to school purposes.
The bill of course should provide
for the matter of issuing bonds to
be submitted to a vote.
2d. The bill should provide for
creating a special school district,
taking in the country around Pick
ens for two and a half miles, with
power to levy a special school tax
sufficient to run an eight 'months
school, at least free of tuition and
incidental fees. As a result, all of
the many vacant houses would be
occupied, now ones built, the town
would havo some life about it, fam
ilies would move here to educate,
business would improve. The ad
vantage of this plan is, it is equi
table-every one contributes in
proportion to his property. Those
thoughts are merely iuggestions
that this or some better plan. may
be adopted that will r e a u I t in
building up at Pickens an oxcol
lent school system.

Timnan Interviewed.
COLUxmBA, 8. C., April 8.--Gov
ernor Tillman to-day gave a sur
prising interview to the press
I road to the governor an ex
tract trom a letter from a pop
ulist which he had received in
which the writer said that the
only thing he did not admire
about the governor's politicial
course so far was that lie did
not have the moral courage to
come out squar~ly and call him
self a, populist. I then asked
the governor ifhe had seen all
the references made to him by
the northern press as the popu
list governor.
Governor Tillman rose and
walke~d up and down. His eye
flashed fire, and in the most de
termined manner he said. "Yes,
they call me a populist. I will
toll them that I am the trust rep
resentative of Jeffersonian dem
ocracy in the load in American
polities to-day. Let me tell you,
I don't see anything ahead now
but for the southern democrats
to combine their forces with
the western pupulists and go in
to the next national campaign
on new party lines. The north
eastern democrats and republi
cans a're now together. It is a
combination -of the moneyed in.
ter-ests."
The governor then, turning
suddenly aa an a 8m...wa
ner, said: "I despise Cleveland
and his mugwumps. He is no
better than the rankest republi
can. He has destroyed the dem:
ocratic party. The South and
West will be forced now to unite
and have a complete reorganiza
tion of party lines. The people
who are afraid of the Negro and
other questions will have to cast
aside their feats on those scores
and come together on the one
line of fighting the money com
bination. Cleveland has been
working under the dictation of
the Now York bankers and bar
gaining with them in the man
ner of the issue of bonds. He
promised the banks if they
would take them there would be
no more legislation on the silver
question by this congress. Con.
greis passed the seigniorage act
and lie voted the bill, indicating
plainly the nature of his bar
gains with the bankers. The
whole thing is such a scheme
of robbery that lie ought to be
impeached. It is a shame and a
disgrace.
"The idea of this great govern
ment having to beg a lot of Shy
locks' assistance is so outrage
ous that there is not any lan
guago too strong in which to
characterize it. Oleveland is
owned, body and soul, by those
scoundrels. He secured his
nomination at Chicago through
the influence of a subsidized
press, and what votes he lacked
thereafter, after exhausting such
means, lie bought with pron
ses of patronage, which prom
ises have been since redeemed
the goods have been delivered.
His attemlpt to browboat and
debauch the senators and repre.
sentatives was ontrageous in
the extreme. If those cowardly
congressman up there had any
appreciation of their duty to their
constituency at home they
would impeach him.
"Consider the farce and trea.
son to the interests of tho mass
es of issuing bonds under the
t pretence of increasing the gold
reserve when the samc gold is
paid in at one window and
drawn out at another with sil
ver certificates. And the same
process can go on till the silver
certificates are exhausted and
the people have to pay the inter
est."
"Well, governor, what is your
idea of what ought to be done?''
wvas asked.
The governor thonghit for an
instant and then said: ''Weli,
I'll tell you. I think that the
silver men of this country ought
to meet in convention at Mom
plis or St. Louis and organize a
fight to control the next con
gross. Let the West and the.
South cast aside all questions
upon which they now have any
differences and get together, 1t
is a fight between gold and sil
ver or poverty and prosperity.
Onoe more word as to Mr. Cleve
land. 1 think that it is most
damnable and outrageous, his
being dictated to andl bought up
by those bondholders. It is
debasing his high office, He is.
abusing his power to dicker with
such people and barter away
people's blood even upon the
pretext of financial relief.
"'rho newspapers which are
snarling and snapping at my
heels as being a populist are the
p~aid hirelings of his bosses. I
am a populist in tho sense that I
am for the people's rights, but
there are many planks in the
populist platform which I do not
endorse. If the silvor congress
men will issue a call for a silver
convention and carry the war
into Africa we wvill teach those
blood-sucking gold thieves a los
son in poll ics such as they have
not had since Jackson's cam
paign against the banks. The
farmers of the South and West
will move on Washington in a
solid body and demand legis
lationi that will give them relief
from the grinding pioverty pr1o
duced by 6 cents cotton and 30
cents wheat.
Simply because a m'an who
works on a farm is called a farm
er, it does not, follow .that the
man who works in a forgo ,1s a
forger.
