It Is now n settled fact timi thc
farmers nil over tho country will
make a desperate offert to perfect
?n organization, or at least to ho rep
resented in tho Convention which
will soon assemble in Columbia.
Tlie exact course w hich thia Con
vention will pursue, remains to ba
seen. It really appears that tho
time has come- for something to be
done to benefit the agricultural In
terest of the community. Wo are
heartily in sympathy with all who
desire to benefit tho farmers, and
thus benefit the State. While it is
known that agriculture is not n*<
prosperous as it should he, yet wc
do not think thal tho farmers are
injured by tho Iowa of our Sta lo to
aitch an extent as some would moko
it appear. A great deni could bo
dose by way ol improvement, per
haps, but it is a mistaken idea to
suppose that legislation can mnkc
agriculture a profitable business.
We are in favor of a Convention,
and if nothing more is accomplished,
this Convention may bring tho
farmers to sec the importance of
Farmers' Institutes ; lt may servo
tojnnke farmers realize thc neces
sity of studying agriculture as a
science; it may possibly suggest a
plan by which tho burden of tax
ation will be lessened; and, al
though wo have criticised Mr. Till
man severely, if under his leader
ship any one of these can bc accom
plished, the Convention will uot
have been a failure.
Wo admit that many practical
suggestions have been made, yet,
wo ure still most unequivocally op
posed to any class of men, in dem
ocratic ranks, forming themselves
into A political party and declaring
that because they uri; in the ma
jority, they will rule tb ? country.
If we say that tho unqalifled will
of the majority shall rule, then wc
must leave the selection of officers
in tho hands of,thc negroes.
Mr. Tillman d?chires that h<
does not desire to form a political
organization, and we trust lie is
sincere, yet we are unable to sec
why he Ls so anxious to address thc
farmers in the various counties be
fore the Primarii J\lr rf inn. Ile
addressed at least two letters to
Agricultural Clubs that invited
him to speak, and declined on ac
count of pressing business; but said
he would surely address them be
fore Ihr Primary Klection. it h
certainly misleading If he is roallj
seeking to benefit the farmers sole
from an Agricultural standpoint
Wc Will, however, give him th?
benefit of the favorable impressen
made by his latest communication
and hopo that, even if his first plat
was to rule or ruin, he is now work
lng for tho good of the class whoir
Senator Honrs Inquest Bill.
This bill provides that, "when
ever three citizens of tho Unito<
States shall, under oath, pre icnt t<

Judgo has jurisdiction any perso?

dpiniiiion it shall bo tho duty ol
such Judge to hold nu huptest int?
the circumstances of such killing
injury or threatening, said Judgt
shall forthwith report the evidence
hy liim taken and his conclusions
of fact thereon to tho I'rosideht Ol
the United States, to be by bim Ir.hl
before Congress," As tho Judge.'
of the United States Court- are ap
pointed for life, and arc Republic
ans, we consider this a direct at
tempt to pave the way for political
persecutions. Instead of an Inquest
those Courts would hold un inqui
sition similar to thone of thc
twelfth century Which were'e-(ub
llshed to convict heretics.- The sen

?.Tuck tho Wrong Pond by
Tho correspondentof the Augusta
Clirolcle, describes a cartoon on the
farmers agitation which lias rccont
ly beou prosoncd to him in tho fol
lowing manner :
"it is the work of a Newberry
artist. Tho scone is laid in tho coun
try, but in tho distance is seen u
largo and handsome building. This
building Tor tho purpose ot tho
politicians is called an agricultural
college, but it is actually tho Gov
ernor's mansion, Approaching vliis
edifice along a dusty road two po
litical teams arc travelling. The il rat
is a somewhat delapidated wagon
drawn by a spavined mule and an
aged ox. The driver ls Moses Till -
man, arrayed in his priestly robes
and bearing in his hand a rod, which
serves tho purpose of a flag-staff,
upon the top of which a serpent
represents tho banner of (ho organi
zation. In tho front of the wagon,
nt Muse.-.' feet are Iho&tono tablets
with the commandments. The w ag
on is filled to overflowing. This
crowd is called the "Lost tribe of
Isreal." The wagon is evidently
overloaded, as ono wheel is leaving
the axle und tho motive pow er ls
rapidly becoming exhausted.
Rilling rapidly in th? rear is the
M utter of t hr? State Orange moun
ted on a new bicycle, fc? which is
attached a stout wagon by a ropo.
The rider calls out to tho travellers
in front of bini to "pile in but no
.Moses for nie,'' while above his
wagon a sign indicates that the
seat- therein have been reserved
for all "simon pure (J rangers." The
author clearly thinks that t his team
will win the race. Near by, but
still in the rear the free trader is
pushing bis humble wheelbarrow
not yet having age ot financial
strcngth'enough to own a wagon.
Off lu the distance, on a bill in Cull
view of tho contest below n few
farmers have gathered to meet the
convention. They have responded
to tho call and they are ready to
save their beloved State from tho
impending evils thal have been
pictured to them by tho agitators.
They are about lo conclude that it
bas been a falso alario, when one
of tho most watchful of their num
ber observes the procession below,
which should have been coming in i
the direction of ibo convetion, bead
ing directly for thc < loverner,s man
sion, and turning excitedly to his
companions declares "they have
tuck tho wrong road by thunder!"
The picture is a good burlesque on
the sit nat ion.
I f you Impress a wrong Iden upon
tho mind of a child il ls alomost un
impossibility to eradicate ii. liv
ery one recognizes this bul still
nit quietly and allow such ten? bing
to go on. A conspicuous example
of this kimi is the false impression
as to the character ?if law vers which
wo all re?oive and believe from our
youth up. lt all comes from tho
fourth fable In Webster's Element
ary Spelling Rook. The child ut
school linds tho shrewd farmer nm!
tho unsuspected lawyer pictured
off in a rude wood cut in the back
of his book and is at once taken
with the illustration, lt is "object
teaching." He reads the simple
story of bow the lawyer changes
his opinion und profoundly boll Vos
that a lawyer will lie whenever tho
occasion arises. Ile believes that
the lawyer is always "on the make
thar ho ls unscrupulous and selfish,
and hastily pushes tho truth aside
if it affects his interests. He never
thinks for & moment that tho
shrewd fanner came for advice
with falsehood on his lips. In a
manner ho justifies all this, and
thinks deception ls of ito account ?o
long a?; it is practiced by tho fann
er. The idea of the lawyer's trick
ery goes with the youth all of his
life. Ile cannot divest himself of
the Impessinu. lt is not only ono
person who cherishes thc id? u, bul
all tito generations which have
read the fable commence life with
tin' same prejudice, lt (dings io a
majority of our people. The pure
and spotless lives of a hundred at
torneys counts for nothing. The
illustrious examples of pal riot ism,
and the thousands of deeds of char
ity and self-sacraflce which huvo
distinguish the legal fraternity of
this broad country have mad" no
change in the prejudice of the mass
es. When the young lawyer starts
in lifo he has this weight to carry,
which Increases his hardships. A ll
his life bo will have to "row ngnnst
tho tide." Such should not be tho
ease, but it is true thal even the
mos! learned men of other occupa
tions live without prejudice all of
; their days.-Abbeville Medium.
\ -A new branch of industry has
developed In New Mexico. The
Hoard of Commissioners of (?rant
County advertise that they will pay
$200 reward for each and every
hostile Apache killed "mi presen*
tatton to the Hoard of the scalp of
Bitch Indian." It is not supposed
that the sculps are desired for their
Intrinsic value, but mendy as a
guarantee of good faith. There
may be some difficulty in distin
guishing between the the sculps of
hostile nnd peaceable Apaches, but
as the frontier view is that "the
only good Indian is a dead Indian,''
this trifling obstacle will scarcely
be permit led to stand in tho way of
a booming business in scalps.
There is not another sect under
heaven so filled with tho spirit of
nroselytoism as the Adventists.
They labor moro earnestly to tear
others down than they do tocoavort
sinners. Their ilrst work, often
their only work in n coniinunjty is
the alienation of members from
other chuches, i, c., this is tho nim
of their leader.-Indiana Jlaptist.

Ono of tho Mest Powerful Drug? - A Canso
of Heart Tro&ble.-A Sugcestlou.
New York lins a doctor of un
usual brightness who has buqled
himself lately writing pithy and
scholarly monograms on some of tim
baptizod and indorsed evils of so
ciety. His latest manifesto is on
"How Coffee Affects People," ami
the aim of the paper is to show that
coffee is ono of the most powerful
drugs in tho list of medicines. The
proof of its power as a drug ls shown
by the fact that ll Ls used to a greater
extent than any other as au anti
dote for poisons, hot h animai und
vegetable. Ile urges that he does
not desire to reach tho ear of the
public in general; but of those-who
have pains in the region of the
heart, oppressed breathing and an
irregular pulse; those who are ex
ceedingly nervous ctol unable to
sleep at night; those who have ;i
full feeling, dlzzim ss and pains of a
neuralgic character in the head;
who have nausea and sourness of
the stomach without having trans
gressed thc law s of lifo; who have
pains In thc liver, a yeller skin,
with eyes of the satoe sort ; and
lastly, who lui ve hemorrhoids. If
tho .doctor supposes he has left out
one br two Of all creation from this
list ho may bo right, but he cer
tainly is mow ing a wide swath, and
may honestly say he is after ?tho*
ear of the public. To these ho of
fers one- suggestion. Omit COffoo
for a time, throw physic to tho
dogs, and find out if thc trouble
after all is not in thodrugusod asa
beverage, in moderate doses coffee
raises the blood pressure ami accel
erates tho heart. Now, says tho
doctor, heart discus, is in tin? main
an easily prevented disenso, and it
is very frequently duo to tho exces
sive use of coffee, ll o enumerates
several instances where ho had
called to prescribo and found his
patients given up to die, but there
was really tu?1 bing tho matter bul
the breakfast drug.
Ile w isely suggests thal in this day
of sudden den tbs WO are called upon
to review our methods of eating
and living in order lo e?ot at the
cause or causes. "The heart and
brain requires rosl as well
as oilier organs of tho body." If
the vessels In thc brain are kept
distended wo have as n .warning
dizziness and pain, and if thc warn
ings are unheeded, apoplexy. So
with tho heart. So short are its in
tervals of rest whOU beating a* 72
to 8-1 t hal wo can hardly conciovo it.
Add to this the stimulus (hal sends
