WANTS TO LIVE 3N WIAIuSBORO.
We are reliably informed that Prof.
E. L. Patton would like v'ery much to
make his home in .Winnsboro, if he
culd rent a suitable dwelling. Dr.
Patton would be a valuable addition
to our comiunity, and we hope that a
dwelling..may be found for him. He
is a rare scholar, and his presence
.would improve our literary atmos
phere, and his being in our town is so
S desirable' that we hope our citizens
* will make some effort to procure a
house for him.

Pressley Brice is spending his va

THE FIRST STAMPING DAY.
On Friday morning about 8.30
'clock, before the bank openei, quite
crowd had gathered in front of the
uilding waiting to buy revenue
tamps. They appeared very anxious
o give Uncle Sam some money with
which to pay his war debt. Of course,
ost of the stamps wanted were to
aflx to checks. The kind used for
this purpose at present are the ordi
ary postage stamps, with the letters
'L. U." printed on them by the Inter
nal Revenue Department. The docu
entary and proprietery stamps are
hout the size of the Cailumbian stamp
with a warship on them, which we
resume represents the Maine. Mr.
Samuel Cathcart, Jr., was the first
na at the bank on Friday morning,
and to stamp and cancel it.
A reporter on Friday called at sev
oral stores and asked for a bottle of
ologne. The clerks, almost without
xception, passed it over the coanier,
not suspecting that they were violating
the law of the United States, and
aking themselves liable to pay a fine
f not more than five hundred dellars,
r be imprisoned not more than six
onths, or both, at the discretion of
the court. Nearly every store in the
eunty has on hand a small stock of
perfumery, cosmetics and other simi
lar articles, and, under the law, they
will have to pay on each bottle, or
other inclosure, with its contents,
hen the retail value or price does not
xceed five cent., one-eighth of one
per cent; when the retail price or
value does not exceed ten cents, two
eighths of ene per cent; when not ex
eeding fifteen cents, three-eighths of
ne cent; when it does exceed fifteen
ents and not twenty-five cents, ive
eighths of one cent; and for each ad
ditional twenty-five cents of retail
price or value or fractional part thereof
in excess cf twenty-five. cents, five
eights of one cent.
The stamps are in deno ninations of
one-eighth of a cent up to fifty cents.
The tax will doubtless catch a great
many people. Many will violate the,
law without any intentian of doing so;
for instance, if a farmer in the coun
try gives an order to his merchant in
town to pay ene of his farm laborers
I ny sum of money, sneh orders are
required to be stamped. In this case,
both the man who makes the order,
and the merchant paying it, without
its being properly stamped, are' able
to indictment in Uncle Sam's court.
Nearly every group of men seen on
the streets now are discussing the new
law, and iu a week or two nuost peo
pie will have become pretty familia.r
Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainnield,
Ill., makes the statement, that she
caught cold, which settled on her
lungs: she was treated for a month by
her family physician, but grew worse.
He told her she was a hopeless victim
of consumtion and that no medicine
could cure her. Her druggist sug
gested Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption ; she bought a bottle and
to her delight found herself benefited
from first dose. She continued its use
and after taking six boltles, found her
self sound and well; now does her
ewn honsework, and is as well as she
ever was. Free trial bottles of this

The base ball cranks of our town
seem to stir the spirit with quite an
enthusiastic zeal. They played two
match 'games on Wednesday between
Winnsboro and Chester and carried
high honors over both teams by a great
victory. Our boys played Chester
once before this season, resulting in an
overwhelming defeat of the Chester
boys. We will not give the score uere
as it might cause the Boro boys to get
afraid and not play Blackstock again.
The students of our town and com
munity who have been attending the
different colleges are all home now
and has begun to show a great deal on
the social conditions of the place.
The crops of the vicinity are doing
fairly well. The little cotton has be
gun to blossom in time to see the grass
put in its first appearance. Corn is
doing well since the recent rains, but
on upland it is beginning to need rain
again. A few of our gardeners have
had roasting cars.
The freit crop is very light this year
-that is apples and geaches-but su;h
as plums and blackberries, we have
plenty of them.
Mr. W. J. Lathan had the mibfor
tune to have one of his male's leg
broken a few days ago.
D . James Adams Hayne, of the
First Stnth Carolina Volunteer', spent
a few days last week in Blackstock
with h's wife.
Misses Carrie and Mary Lee Hardin,
two of Capers Chapel's most fascinat
ing young ladies, spent a few days
with their aunt, Mrs. Wm. Lathan,
last week. We welcome such in our
community at any time.
Miss Mattie Mills, 'who has been
teaching school at Sugar Creek, N. C.,
has returned home again.
Mrs. F. D. Thoin, who has been on
an extended visit to her dangbter in
Texas, has returned home.
Quite a number from here attended
court in Chester on Monday.

Bears the The KiGd You Have Always Bcuaht
A TEACHER'S OUALIFICATION.
No graver or more important inat
ter can come before a people as parents
and citizens than the selection of
teacheri for their children. There is
no calling in life's varied work involv
ing higher responsibilities and few so
high, as that of the school-master.
He has too frcquently been judged in
the aggregate by the unfortunate ec
entricities of individuals. This vo
cation, because often used only as a
stepping stone, or way-station, to some
other more lucrative and less laborious
profession, has suffered in reputation
nd dignity. The day is past when
the teach3r's position is to be sought
only as a convenient means to an end,
or as a last resort for those who have
failed in other pursuits. It is recog
nized that he must be possessed of
pcial qualifications, be fitted for his
peculiar work by education, by zeal,
by love for it and a conscientious de
sire to impart all that he has received
in mind, heart and body to his pupils
for their upbuilding in knowledge and
character. The command of God to
Israel;was to teach his statutes and
ordinances unto their children and
children's children, in order that they
igt learn and do them and be
blessed. The orator (Rev. Mr. Smith),
of the commencement celebration,
sounded a clear and true note, when
he said that education was neither
sound nor true, when it concerned
itself about the physical' and intellec
tual and neglected the spiritual. Man
is a trinity, of body, mind and spirit,
nd education should take cognizance
of all and cultivate and develop all
the faculties to attain its true end.
The teacher then shold be one Who
recognizes, in himself, this tr-pwrt
nature and gives due consideration: :o
every part-who holds all his po A ers
of mind, body and spirit as gifts fcomn
his creator to b6 employed f e .is
glory and for the disseminating that
knowledge of him and his commanzds,
as are essential to the weil being and
progress of his pupils. Parents are
charged with this care of their off
spring, and when they depute this
care to another, in consequence of the
exigences of life, they are bound to
see, that they select one who fears
God and honors his will. Tne per
entage is one in which r.kepticism and
irreligion are organized forces atlack
ing the vitals of social and business
ife; the rationalism of German
schools and the infidelity and abandor.
of the Parisian in pursuit of pleasure
are breaking down the sober reverence
and regard of our people for customs
and beliefs belt sacred for generations
by our forefathers.
We need to use every means at our
ommand to inculcate and keep alive
faith in God and obedience to His or
dinances. For Christian and God
foaring citizsns to disregard this quali
fcation of the spiritual man, in select
in teachers, who are to mould the
charazters and educate the minds of
their children, would be in the highest
degree immoral. The teacher's influ
mene is not confined to the e is room
or the lesson uder recitation, but is
far-reaching and operative, even with
out his will or intention. And such is
the tendency of cur- unregenerate
nature-that we more readily appro
priate the oad than the good. Let us
then seek for teachmers whose
ives are lives of faith and prayer, that
their influence may be fe-r good and
for the deepening and perpetuating les
sons learned of pions mothers, thus
sending forth reverent, God-fearing
men and women, "who in their turn
shall teach others also," and tbus
transmit to generations yet unborn the
priceless heritage of Christian princi
ple, moral conduct, which hsve been
bequeted unto us. A W: her.
