Taesday. February 12. : : 1895
IT really seems that the cotton plant
is the true exponent of th3 great re
sources of the South. It furnishes
food and raiment for man, food for
cows, sheep and hogs, and now we are
told that horses may be fed most
economically on hulls as a substitute
WE are anxious to see the work of
organizing P.ize Clubs throughout the
county go on. Three clubs were re
ported last week and we hope to hear
of more soon. In- organizing these
clubs the most practical part should
not be l.st sight of, that of keeping in
view that these clubs should be neigh
borhood experiment stations. Not
only the largest yield but the largest
profit should be the object sought.
PREsMENT CLEVELAND has put the
question squarely to Congress as to
whether the geld reserve be held by
the treasury to redeem its notes shall
be maintained by the issue of geld
bonds. The President has been much
abused on account of his sound money
ideas but he has now left the matter to
Congress. What that body will do
no one can with any certainty predict.
If they do not do something to settle
-thll financial policy of the country
with~ themu must rest the responsibility.
TaB Nuws AID HERA.Dw has always
been interested in the advancement of
the educational interests of the county
and is anxious to become the medium
of commiunication through which the
may reach each other in the discus
sion of questions pertaining to the
advancement of the schools. To. this
end we have tendered the School Comn
missioner the use of our columlns and
hope to have something of interest
each week in this line. Already we
have had contributions from several
teachers, and others are promised.
GOmERTOR EvTAis has found that the
system of book-keeping used by the
- - dispensaries iv not satisfactory and he
proposes to look into the matter and
reorganize and reconstruct the machin
ery of the department. This is proper.
It is remembered that no intelligent
statement could be gotten out of the
published reports during the last cam
paign. Charges of fraud were made
and as often 'denied but the figures
were so mixed that no two account
ants could get the same results from
them. This is all wrong, and the ad
ministration owes it to the public and
to themselves to see that a complete
system is used. This can easily be
done if the selection be submitted to
competent accountants. The Gover
nor is right and no doubt will have the
matter attended to.
TsE recent cold snaps have been
most destructrive in Florida, the mer
cury reaching the lowest point on re
cord. Orange trees are nearly all
killed and the pine apple interests in a
deplorable condition. The cultivation
of the latter has recently been pushed
far up in the-State and had become an
important industry. It is estimated
that forty per cent of the pine apple
plants were killed by the irst freeze
and those left were damaged to such
an extent that very little fruit could
reasonably be expected. The present
cold wave, reported more severe than
the first, has probably destroyed the
remaining. This is bad news from
the sunny land of nlowers whose
people have been congratulating them
selves upon having felt none of the
depression of the hard times. Now,
however, they will have to fall in the
procession and move on to the doleful
term of "Hard Times."
A Good schemeo whieh Failed to Carr in

Rev. Mir. Todd accepted the presidency
of the Due West College, as a plan
was on foot to establish a college here
with him at the head. The Osanva
was informed of this two weeks ago,
but was not at liberty to mention it.
The idea was to rent the college and
for Mr. Todd and Miss Lilny Long to<
run the schol. Mr. Todd had prolfdied
the Due West people to give them an1
answer Thursday, and the other plan j
not having come to mnaturity, he ac

'he happenings in this section for

uprofitable," and I did not feel iu
elled to write you of them fearing

The cotton planters are casting side

DEATH OF MRS. PECK.
One of Columbia's Oldest Citizens Passes

Mrs. Sarah B. Peck, one of the old

residence of her grnddaughter, Mrs.
Thomas R Enlish, at. Hamnpden
'to the ripe old age of 93 years. She
was a native of this city, and lived
here until a few years ago, when she
went to live with her son, Dr. Thomas
Peck, who died a short time ago at the
age of 70 years. Mrs. Jacob S. Muller,
yof this city, was a grand daughter of
IAll the old residents of this city re

school for boys and girls for over fifty
years, and numbers of citizens of
iboth sexes went to school to her.
Born in 1802, she very early imbibed
t he patriotic spirit of those stirring
