Cotton Seed Oil Mills.
It is rather remarkable that
amono; all the improvements that
have been made here recently,
nothing has been dene in the way of
manufacturing enterprises. There
are many such needed, and a little
capital expended in this direction
would tend materially to build up
the town. If wo cannot have a
cotton factory, weean at least have
lill oil mill. Such an enterprise
would not only be of the greatest
benefit to the town; a great con
venience to thc community ; hut it
would directly benefit the farmers
of tho county.
' "Chemical analysis shows that
that the oil in cotton seed does not
enter asa fertilizing property ; that
after the oil is extruded the value
of tho meal is notlcwoned. If this
be true, and we must take it as
true, there is surely a great waste
to use this valuable oil as a ferti
lizer.
Again, a great many farmors pre
fer to use commercial fertilizers,
and make every year large quan
tities of ditton seed for sale. We
find that the cotton mills are now
paying fancy prices for cotton seed.
Columbia, for instance, offers IS
cents per bushel. This is directly
beneficial to the fanners.
The cotton seed oil mills of the
South, to-day ?ive paying larger
dividends than the majority of the
cotton factories, although high
prices are paid for the seed.
All cannot be successful mer
chants. We must have diversity
of industries, and (he sooner we
turn our attention to factories, the
sooner will prosperity come. If
some live man would make the
initial Step, it might lead to a manu
facturing boom, in comparison with
which our sister towns would bo
insignificant.
Let the right man try It, it will
pay.
Hut Ono Way Out.
Now that it is too late, Charles
ton realizes the fact flint she has
lost the trade of upper-South Caro
lina by means of the Georgia Cen
tral's invasion. It is unfortunate
for "tho city by thc sou," but in
this aggressive age we must not
depend too much on what has been,
hut grasp opportunities as they rise.
To sit quiet by and depend upon
reputation, or anything else, in this
day, will not do. It is simply a
matter of business. The Georgia
Central has shown its accustomed
energy and foresight in pushing
- l& lines further into this rich
country. While Charleston was
engaged in imaginary roads on
paper, the spikes were being driven
that bind us to Savannah. Now,
if she would retrieve the loss, let
her, instead of wasting more val
uable time, enter Into some ar
rangement with the Greenville &
Columbia Railroad hy which she
con ut least handle our cotton
It seems that of late Charleston
has shown a- remarkable bick of
enterprise; golden opportunities
have been allowed to pass without
improvement, and it would be
strange, if at this late day, she
should do anything. We hope,
however, that .something will be
done.
Tho unfortunate inhabitants of
tho Celestial Km pi re appear to oc
cupy rather a disngroablo place
when they come to America to en
gage in business. A potitiotl con
taining tho signatures of some fifty
or more small dealers in Augusta,"
was presented to the Council re
questing that no more license be
granted to Chinese in that city.
By their cheap living, short weights
and other tricks in trade, it is
claimed that the heathen Chinese
offer unfair competition. Tills is
certainly a novel question and we
will await tho notion of the city
council with considerable interest.
It is hard to see bow this can be a
Just ground for withholding licen
ses. ?

Thc Teachers* Meeting.
Tho County Teachers1 Associa
tion, which met on the Kith und
17th, wns, in ninny respects, un
utter failure. Such un organiza
tion, in owler to bo successful, must
begin In earnest ; the teachers must
nt least feel sufficiently interested
in their work to attend the meet*
inga, or it cannot accomplish any
good. There ure some half-dozen
teachers in the county who are
thoroughly in earnest, and desire
to promote the great cause of edu
cation, hut it cannot advance as it
should without the co-operation of
the touchers throughout the county.
The past decade shows a most
wonderful Improvement In all tin?
arts and sciences, hut in none has
more progress been made than
in the modes of teaching. Wo
see the work accomplished more
thoroughly and in half the time;
the children are made to feel in
terested in the school, and in many
respects we lind the new methods
an Improvement upon the old, and
yet a great many teachers ore con
tented to follow in the old ruts.
Whether the old or the new he
best, it will certainly prove bene
ficial to all teachers to meet to
gether and discuss the different
modes. Let thom meet and Inter
chango views. It will canto or
thusitism and /.eui in this impor
tant work, and establish a relation
that will surely prove profitable as
well as pleasant.
The Normal Institute, recently
conducted at this place, guvo a
great impetus to education in our
county. If wi1 would attain the
greatest results, we should carry
on the work thus inaugurated, by
means of these Teachers' Associa
tion.
The meeting just closed was not
well attended, and consequently
failed to accomplish the good that
was expected; yet if nothing more
was accomplished, it has been the
means of showing bow few teachers
in the County appreciate such an
institution. All present J seemed
deeply interested in the work of
the Association, and to them it
was a pleasant occasion. The dis
cussions were both instercstitlg and
instructive, and it is earnestly hoped
that ?it the next mooting, which
will be on the Third Saturday in
November, at Clinton, all the teach
ers who have tin* cause of educa
tion at heart, ami who have tho
ambition to rise higher in the pro
fession, will, if possible, attend.
Clinton is alive in educational
matters, and upon this occasion,
we are sure, will extend a cordial
welcome.
All Important Issue.
{From the Philadelphia Time*.)
The Prohibitionists of Iowa have
found themselves outwitted nguiu
on a lelil? point and, as a result,
have suffered the worst defeat ever
administered io them. Prueood
ings having been instituted ngaiust
some liquor sellers in Dubuque,
their counsel raised the hitherto
unheard of point that the proceed
ings were directly opposed to the
civil rights bill and asked that the
suit be transferred to the Federal
courts. The Court granted the pe
tition mid the whole question of
prohibiting the sale of liquors is
thus given a different turn from
any it luis ever had.
The section under which this ac
tion has been taken is the follow
ing from the hill of April 'lo, 1871:
SUCTION 11)71). Kvcry person
who, under color of any statute, or
dinance, regulation, custom or
usage of any State or Territory,
subjects, or causes to be subjected,
any citizen of the United States,
or other person within the jurisdic
tion thereof, to tho deprivation of
any ri?rhis, privileges or immuni
ties secured hy tho Constitution
und laws, shall be liable to the
party injured in an action at law
suit in equity, or other proper pro
ceeding for redress.
It was claimed by the defense
that the state of Iowa had encour
aged nun to settle within its boun
daries, thus placing the manufac
ture and sale of liquors anion"; the
"rights, privileges and immunities"
secured by thc Constitution and thc
11 ws.
If this point be sustained in Fed
eral courts the Prohibition people
will learn something of the differ
ence between hunting the tiger und
being hunted by the ti^er. Such
an interpretation would turn the
tables completely. Under tho
State law the liquor selling ls not
only made a crime; it is absolutely
prohibited. Under the construc
tion maintained by the defense,
ami now to he Judiciously determ
ined, the State cannot destroy a
bus!ness which it has permitted its
citizens to follow ami build up with
out compensating its victims.
This is more than an interesting
question of law. It luis a direct
bearing upon the reciprocal rela
tions and powers of the Federal
ami Slate (J over Union ts, and the
settlement of the issue w ill deter
mine tn what extent tho late amend
ments and the laws passed lu pur
suance of them have changed the
original or the ante-war construc
tion of the Constitution. It is given
a greater importance because the
Supreme Court has already de
clared unconstitutional those sec
tions of the ci vii rights bill which
were intended to secure to negroes
equal accommodations al inns, pub
lic conveyances and places of
amusement.

WASHINGTON, October 13.-The
Supreme Court of the Cotted States
to-day began hearing arguments
upon tho "Mississippi railroad eon -
missioners oases." These are three
in number, having points of differ*
euee, but similar in their main
features, and they are being ar
gued together. They involve a de
cision upon the right of a State to
tlx taritf rates, prescribo localities
for depots, and make other regula
tions for railroads which are built
and operated under charters of
other States of the United States.
In ISSI, tin' Mississippi Legislature
passed a railroad commission bill
providing for the appointment of
a bonni of commissioner author*
i/.od and required to tlx tariff rates
for railroads lying in and passing
through the State, and to exercise
certain other functions in the man
agement of lines, and empowered
the commiasission to demand nu
der penalties for non-compliance
such information from the roads
as might be found desirable in the
performance of its linties. The
commissioners took stens to carry
out the law, giving the roads no
tice of the fact, whereupon the
Farmers Loan and Trust Company,
as trustees of tho Mobilt and Ohio
Road, the Illinois Central and the
New Orleans and Northeastern
each attacked the law in the Fed
eral courts, holding it to be uncon
stitutional, and secured an injunc
tion restraining the commissioners
from carrying the State law into
effect. The question comes before
the Supreme Court upon appeal
from the Court below.-News (tiul

Advice to Newspaper Headers.
Never borrow a paper. This is
Important.
Never believe anything you read
in a newspaper that doesn't agree
with what you think. This saves
wear and tour on your convictions.
Always speak slightingly of the
newspaper you happen to read.
This Impresses people who don't
know you with the idea that you
are a very superior sort of a per
son.
When a newspaper opposes your
candidacy always accuse the editor
of having a personal spite against
you. That is the way you would
act if you were the edito;', you
know.
When you finish reading the pa
per throw it down contemptuously
and remark loudly and impressive
ly that "there's nothing in the pa
pers nowadays." This carries
weight with those people who over
hear you and are unable to read
themselves.
Write frequent letters to tho
editor telling him how to conduct
his business. This is one of the
things he enjoys most of anything.
lt shows him that whatever disad
vantages his work may have, he is
much more to be envied than a
bilious, dyspeptic, conceited, asi
nino, ignorant, bumptious, bore
some crank, lt makes him satis
fied with his lot. Hut send your
letter by mail. Why? The editor
may be a larger man than you are.

from my house, but Lord bless you
T ain't afraid of cyclones. The cy
clone was never born that could
scare me or make me run."
"Hut what have you got the cy
clone pit for ?"
"Well, you see, my old woman
has spells of temper when faint
safe for a fellow to be around, es
pecially wash days. On them oc
casions I find my cyclone right
smart handy."
