There has been much of good buding
in our town during the Christmas holi
days, and many kind remembrances of
the omi of tho year 1885 are treasured
up in the hoarts of a great many of our
people, both children and adults.
There have boon quito a number of
visitors in Clinton during the holidays,
among them arc* Miss Jennett McFar

of Darlington, Miss Anna Robinson of
Willlamston, and Miss Alice Boozer of
(Jreonwood. Kev. Mr. Millard has also
given a series of bis popular lei tures, lo
small but delighted houses.
Clinton has had, during tho past few
days, (piite a number of entertainments.
Frst, the Dramatic Club gave, in Owen's
Hall, a light temperance drama and
farce. Both pieces were well rendered
and well patronized. Then thc Ladies'
Aid Society furnished an oyster supper
and fostlval at tho Orphanage, which
netted out something moro than a hun
dred dollars. Two dances came In, in
the meantime, and all was fully enjoyed.
Tho Christmas tree, in thc Baptist
Church, was so well attended that not
only every child got somethimr, but Hie
pastor and teaeheos were remembered
in a way most gratifying to their feel

The ancient Oreeks had a law thal cv
cry man who held an office, was not en
titled to election, or to hold any other
ellice, or to receive any public honor,
w hatever, HU he had made a full return
of his official acts, and all had boon In
vestigated and approVOCi.
This was ropuirod and expected to bc
done amcdiatoly after the close of his
torin of OinoO. It was a good low, and
we, of this progressive age, would do
well to repeat. It ls getting to be very
difficult, and in some InstailCOS, impos
sible, for our County officors to give
bonds with good and sufficiont surity.
Simply because good men will hesitate
long before signing a paper which must
necessarily stand against them for more
than half a lifetime. There is no excuse
for it. The acts of every official should
bo thorougherly investigated just as
soon as his term expires. Such a law in
the past would have saved malty good
menin this country, who are now in
bankruptsy -or something worse such
a law should not only upplp to public
officers, so-called, but to every position
of trust. Nothing encourages dishon

"I HIM going te ?wear of Now
Year's" said iv ne w&papor man, who
docs railroads and night police, as
llO dropped Into ene of Porter Pal
mer's cushioned seuls in tho ro
tunda of the hotel. "No, boys, I've
got some ideas on this business of
tippling. If you wish to publish it
yoa're welcome to do lt. My pro
prietor is a drinker himself in a
small way, and he might say he
had not engaged me to write tem
perance lectures. Hut I'll tell you
what I've l>e?n thinking about ami
overybody ought to think of it.
That's the cost. Now, I've got too
much sense to take up the temper
ance racket from any sentimental
idea, nor will I prate about the
moralistic side of it. Leave that
to the platform cranks und blue
ribbon idiots. My standpoint is
one of practicality. What does tho
tippling habit cost? I have been
a moderate drinker for twenty-five
years. I don't think the habit is
growing on me. 1 know I am in
no datlger of the gutter or tram
phood. My health is perfect, my
mind clear ami active, und physi
cally and mentally considered, my
seven or eight drinks a day or more
on occasion, seem bo have done my
no harm. Hut I nm damnable
poor?" With tlita tho newspaper
mun ?trothed lils legs and looked
at his friends, who were all his
juniors. They hardly realized his
poverty, for ho was weil krossed
and known to be a gentleman.
"Fact," he said, "I am poor and in
debt. Of course you know tho
cruft does nst got princely incomes,
bul they get enough to save some
thing from. The. difficulty is not
so much lack of income as luck of
prudence In bundling it. Do you
know what led me into this train
of thought V I'll tell you. 1 went
into one of the best saloons the
other morning to got a cocktail. I
was a little snaky and needed it.
I had just twenty-live cents. I
got my ten cents chungo, and then
leaned up against the rail und
looked around. I saw pictures
that were elegant. I saw mirrors
reflecting and duplicating them.
I saw tho most magnificent cut
glass and silverware. I saw wood
carvings, mnrble tilings, gorgeous
tapestries, supurb frescoes, and,
speaking to n j mug man present,
the barman said timi it lind cost
nearly ..f<?(?,<llld to supply this one
phlCO With tho.-" gorgeous things.
I looked for th? proprietor, ll?
was not in just then, but his mag
nificent family sleigh stood out
side. It here tufted plumes and the
horses wore banged tails and Rus
sian arches of silver gongs. The
coachman wore a green cont with
great pot. metal disks for buttons,
and a huge sealskin cup tiiat cost
moro than mino. And then, as 1
looked I begun to think. I turned
to the bar ami said inwardly, 'I'll
put up the other ten (Mints and get
a cocktail.' The young man who
made it attracted my attention.
He was one of four wdio was deal
ing out the brains poison. Ho wus
young, stalwart. His dress wis
immaculate, bis linen faultless, his
bands soft and white, his whole ap
pearance suggested the freshness
of curly spring. In his polished
shirt gleamed a gorgeous diamond.
Upon his little linger blu/.ed anoth
er. 1 looked at this chap, and I
begun to reflect that I bud spent
my last ten cents, and would be
compelled to borrow to seo mo
through the week. Then reflection
went still further, und I asked my
self how much of my poor salary
went to keep up this Btyle, und how
much interest 1 had in those dia
monds and furs and sleigh ami
bang-tailed horses? Then 1 began
to look ut the profits of the business,
and remembered that there were
sixty Hverage drinks to tho gallon
of whiskey, and that the avorngo
bar whiskey costs tlireo dollars a
gallon. At fifteen cents a drink
this diamond bedizened gentleman
behind the bar took in nine dollars
for something that cost three dol
lars, to say nothing of added water.
And then I remembered how fow
of those gent lon n n had even a cent
to spend on anything but their sel
fish pleasures, how they wore the
Anent of clothing, tho costliest of
underwear, silken and cashmere,
how their shoes and boots cost from
$12 to $2U u pair, und how l had to
tramp around with soft patches.
Ami the moro I thought the mad
der I got, and I have made up my
mind to leave no more of my money
with theso gentlemen who life so
easily and luxuriously, and whose
gougeous livelihood costs them not
an hour's worry. Others may and
will order drinks, no doubt, but
from me the saloons und their gor
geous proprietors have got their
last dollor. Thia is my little Christ
mas temperance lecture, boys.
Try and profit by it.

Religious Persuasions of Our
An esteemed friend and brother
.sends us the stat ?sties to show the
religious make up of the General
Assembly of South Carolina, which
may interest some of our readers.
The Senate is composed of .'15
members, who are classified ns fol
lows: Baptists, to; Methodists, 9;
Presbyterians, 6} Episcopalians, 4;
Lutherans, :i-making a total of
31 church members, while l are
not connected with any church.
Of these four, ?it least two of them
tire favorably inclined to the Bap
tists. The House of Representa
tives ls composed of 123 members,
(then? is one vacant .sent), divided
in religious sentiment as follows:
Baptists, 81: Methodists, 2?; Pres
byterians, 17; Episcopalians, 12;
Associate Reformed Presbyterians,
6j Roman Catholics, 5j Lutheran
.'1-making a total of 90 church
member, while 24 ure not connected
with any church. In the Senate
and House there ure 130 church
members, or more than four fifths
of the entire Legislature, which
fact will doubtless make a favor
able comparison with any other
.State. It is grtifying that so
largo a proportion of our law
makers ?ire those who delight
in Hie law of Cod, and tho mensure
of their responsibllty is in accord
ance with their profession as the
followers of Him who is able to
make them wise in all things.
The Donkey Wouldn't Bray.
Once upon a time a donkey fell
into a very deep hole, and after
nearly starving, caught sight of a
passing fox and implored the stran
ger to help him out.
"I nm too small to aid you," said
the fox, "but I will give you some
good advice. Only a few rods
awayjia a big, strong elephant.
Cull to bim ami he will get you out
in ?i jiffy."
After the fox lind gone the don
key thus reasoned: "1 am very
weak for want of nourishment.
Every move I make is just so much
additional loss of strength. If I
raise my voice to call the elephant
I shall be weaker yet. No, I shall
not waste my substance that way.
It is the duty of the elephant to
como without calling?'
So the donkey settled himself
back nnd eventually starved to
