RICHMOND COUNTY, GROnIRA, Is to
enjoy a contested clection for sheorlir
A few days ago Daitiel beat Pritchard
sixty-eight votes In a total of about
four thousand. And now Pritchard
claims that at least six ' hundred per
sons voted in Augusta and tle sur
rounding country who were inors or
Jad not paid their taxes. From all
accounts it would appear Chat thie
tax qualifleation clause in Clho Georgia
Constitution is a dead letter, as it is
claimed that over a thousand illegal
votes were - rast indiscrininately for
the two candidates. Thle Governor
decides the contest. Auigusta has for
several yearsallowed scrubraces. This
is the result as it is a warning to other
places. As matters now go, the best
man does not always receive the nomi
nation of tbe Demonratic party. IMucl
Worse is it wheni the decision is left to
all voters irrespective of party, especi
ally when (he ignorant tid viciols are
in tle majority. Colonel McClure, of
tile Philadelphia Times, says it will be
a bad day Fur tho South when party
lines are broken down and the igno

The War on Whiskey.
The movement against too much
whiskev drinking is assuriing strong
proportions. The law p: -sed by our
Legislature has attracted at teio mind

Onneral Gary Disensse the Equty and
Econoiny of the Law -Some Interesting
In the last number of the Edgefleld
Advartiser'Gon. Wt. W. Gary gives the
provisois of the stock law to Edge
ldcounty In answer to - a note ad
dressed to lifin by thirty-seven citizens
of the Coullty. le says that the latids18
of this State originally belonged to the 1
State, and were by degrees granted to t
the citizens of the State. For Years t
there were thousan(s of acres known I
as "public lands," which furnished a I
common range for the stock of every 1
citizen, Now there are no public land's 8
and the products of the Roil have
changed, the small fields have chatiged
and commnonis for past.u rages are till- 0
knowni. He continues: F
I know of 110 lav that gives the V
owier of stock the right to pasture t
theit upon tle 1111 of his neighbor, I
and he is liable timder an old statuto
to an action for dantatges fIor trespass C
of stock. Then the stock owner has r
no right to complain if his neighbors I
claim exclusive right to pastu rage ipon 1
their lands. As there is no law or I
equity ini t, claim of the stock owner,
. propose next to consider the pro
posed chinge in the law from anl econo
The fi-st thing to ascertain is: What I
is (.he vahte of the stock in this Slate? 1
The seconl is: What is the cost of 0
the fVelncinig of the Statt-e? I
By retfreio 1) the statislics of 1871, t
of the agricultural departmneit of the (
General Governmienti, the value of our 0
stock is $2,401,282. The cost of our i1
fencing is $21,136,879. These figures 8
disclose tihe istonnidiltg fact that we 1
expend more thai ten dollrs in build- l
ing fences to keep out. one dollar's I1
worth of stock. It would seem that a
further argun)ent oi this question
would be tutmecessarv. But in order a
to make the matter ,iill clearer, I will a
give the resilts of tlie calculationis of
some of our own people. Gen. James
Chesiut, in a report to the Sout I
Carolina Agricultural Society in .1859, 1
estimies the cost of fencing the im- i
proved lands of' Soulh C (aroliint at. four
dollars and a (Iarter per acre. MIr. r
E. 8. llaommond, of Aiken couity, it
estimates the cost at four ildollars per 1
alere. I take it they ae not witle of 1
the maik. Now tlie average diuration i
of our Cences is aboit ten years; this t
gives mmual ssessment upoti the land C
owner oi forly cents per acre for fene- '
ing his arable hnd. 1
Tler are, accordiniig to the census 1
of 1860, a bout -11,000000 acres of im
proved lands inl tle State; and at tle
rate ofluuir dollars per acre as the a
cost of ,ning, we arrive at the enor- It
imouis siln of $16,000,000 ias the cost "
e elry %en years for lencing out the a
stock of the State. ti
Th'le abo ligr'es ar'0 laken fiomi (
the census of I86); but if yout will c
turn to the census of 1870. Ihere are 0
abou1t 3,000,000 acres of' impirovei d it

years old. Hi-wife is nearly the same

sixty years. Their lift has been plain

kindly feeling toward - them. When

Judge Hughes, at Richmond, Va., on
Fr'ittay. in the United States Circuit
Court, delivered an opinion on the in
solvent Piedmont and Arlington Life'(
Insurance Conipany of that city, in the
matter of appointing a receiver, as
prayed for by a number of policy
holders. Upoi the question whether
or not the court would allow tho comn
piny to appoint its owl receiver,
Judge Hughes said: "I think that the
mere fact of the tiallure of a life insur
ance company is prima fiecie proof
that its operations have beenconduct-'
ed in a fraudulent manner, and if the
failure is not explained by some great
castialty, such as a widespread pesti
lence or suddeii financial convulsion,
or physical calamity, I think it is per se
proof of fraud. I will not pretend to t
say that it creates the presumption of
moral turpitude in the managers of a
company, but It certainly does of con
structfive fraud-that is to say, of that
Anancial imbecility or recklcsness, or
extravagance, or that gross negligence
which is equivalent in its consequence
to fiaud, and which a court is bound I
to regard as conl.tructive n'aud." The
Judge then announced the appoint
ment of A. L. Boulware, of Richmond,
as receiver of the company.
How To TEm-AT A IIotsE.-A horse
cannot be screamed at and cursed1
without becoming less valuable in
every particular. To reach the highest
degree of value the animal should be
perf'ectly gentle and always reliable,
bnt if itxpeects every momenit that it
is in the harness to be "jawed" at and:
struck, it will be in a constant state of
nervousness, and in its excitement as
liable, through fear, to do something!
which is not expected, as to go along
doing what, you started it to do. It is
possible to train a horse to be govern
ed by the word of mouth almost as
completely as it is to train a child, and
and im such training the horse reaches
its highest value. When a horse is
soothed by the gentle words of his
dlriver-and we lave seen him calmed t
down fron3 gr' t excitement by no
other means-i nay be faiirly eon
'cluded that he . valumable animal for
all practical pui' osesq; andl it may be
certainly cbnclarlid that the man who
has such power over him is a humane
man and assensible one. But all this
simpIJly means that the man must sc
cnre the animal's confidence. Only in
excepltional instanices is a horse siub
borin or vicious. If he ulnderstanlds his
surroundings and what is required of
him, he gives no trouble.
A INT TO SUJFFIERus FROMr NEu
IALmu.-Several evenings since I was
attackedl with a severe dental neural
gia. After resorting to friction, cold
and hot applications, etc., without ob
taining any relief, I lay upon my lbed,
trusting that sleep miighit come and
give me respite. Still the exeruciat
iig pain continued, and whiile I was
sufl'oring the "tortures of the doubly
damned," undecided whether to
arouse some tired druggist for a bottle
of chloroform or chop my head off,
(with a decided preference, however,
for (lie chloroform,) I suddenly be
thought me of what I had read of an
anuesthetic wvhich we always carry
with us. Thereupon I began to inflat~e
my lunmgs to their utmost capacity,
and then foircibly blow out all the air
that I could. Immediately the pain
began to lessen, and after a few reple
titions of the process, it had entirely
ceased, being displaced by a (delight
fuil tickling sensation in (lie gums, and
furthermore I kiiow not, for in less
time than it takes to tell it, I was
sound asleep, awakenin2 nlext morn
ing delightfully refreshed and without
a symptom of my ailment left. Hence,
you see I was not simply temlporar'ily
relieved, but entirely well again. 'I
wish other sufferers would try this and
A IHUMAN HIOLOCAUsT.-A fire was
discovered in (lie main building on the
Strafford, N. HI., County F"arm about
4.30 o'clock on Friday morning. A t
the time of the discovery the flames
had made considerable headway and
Imany rooms were filled with smoke.
One hundred andi sixty-nine per~soins
were in the building at the time -and
great difflculty was experienced in get
ting them out, some1 of' them having to
be dragg~ed to a lace of safety. Tihir
teent persons are missing and probably
lost their lives. Thme loss is estimatedi
at $70,000 ; insured for $25~,000. If the
I weather had not beenl unusually w~arm
(lie loss of' life wvould have been much
heavier. The inmates who escaped
are now clothedl and shelteired through
the genIer'osity of the neighbors and
