Tho ono grout question willoh
threatens our government, ?md
ono upon which Homo action must
be taken in tho nour future, is Hud
of railroads. Congress hus spent a
great deal of time upon the consid
eration of is known ns the Inter
states Commerce lull, which seeks
to have a commission appointed
to regulate freights and place the
supervision of railroads in the
hands of tho national government.
Numerous itiftteulties arise in the
consideration of this important
matter. When it comes to thc
"long-bani" and "short haul" thc
best statesmen have failed to renell
a satisfactory solution. If it is
attempted to regulate the freight
charges, at so much per mile, it is
found that numerous roads will
inevitably sutler lu consequence of
competition liv water. Incertain
seasons .steamboats can alford to
carry produce at a low rate and
consequently railroads are compell
ed to reduce freight charges below
living rates. And at oilier seasons
railroads must maleo up the deft;
cioncy thus occasioned, hy raising
their rates. Yid it seems certain
that something is needed to prevent
discrimination. Wo must hold
these powerful corporation.'? in
check. We. offnen hear complaint
against the South Carolina Kail
road Commission, hut it invaria
bly conies from (hose who know
nothing about their duties and what
they are doing for Hie State. Hut
even this Commission cannot
nave us from the tyranny of these
Corporations, To-day Counties ure
taxing themselves to build roads
for Competition, and almost before
thc tax is collected the road goes
into the hands of the corporation
out of whose grasp tho people seek
to free themselves. The greatest
danger is that those corporation
will gain not only a monopoly of
our railroad, hut also a controlling
Influence in our government. Thu
heated campaign now in progress
in Georgia is more than a contest
lad ween Bacon and Gordan. It is
a contest lad ween the people ?md
the railroad influences. Our only
safety is in keeping the govern
ment free from such influences so
that the safe-guards and checks will
he preserved. It is reported that
the Richmond und Danville Syndi
cate, one of tho most powerful in
tlio South, controlling almost all
the roads in upper South Carolina,
North Carolina and some in Geor

The tronido so far with

OLEOMARGA R IN E.
A hoot ten years ugo a French
chemist discovered that (diane of
tallow, bog's hird, cotton seed oil,
(de., churned in milk, and made to
undergo the process of freezing,
then subjected to extreme heat and
again freezing, would give a sub
stance resembling and answering
the purposes Of butter. Since then
numerous factories have been es
tablished for tho manufacture of
oleomargarine in tho United states.
It bas been found that nothing
short of a chemical analysis will
detect tho difference between oleo?
margerlno and pure butter.

Consequently, this discovery luis
been tho means of reducing thc
profit? of the dalry farms of the
Is'ortb. Congress hus been asked
to place a tax upon this manufact
ured oleomargarine in order to pro

There has always appeared strong
arguments in favor of placing a
moderato revenue on foreign im
ports, in order to protect home in
dustries, but we cannot soe how
one homo industry eau he directly

another, without parnliztng the

Only those who have "been

and follows the rise and progress of

ti sudden thrill of pleasure, as thc
sound of her voice reaches the ear.
To him who hears, that voice hath
n charm, mure enticing flinn the
j harp of Opticus. Who hath not,
on a summer's eve, with tho "cur
tain of night pinned back by the
stars," been transported above the
j tolls and cares, and troubles of this
world, by tho presence of some fair
damsel. Are such pleasures real,
or aro they Imaginary only? Wo

the present, youths of all agu--, have
spent their earlies! years in (pies!
of a "Dulcinea del Toboso," and as
often as they have been successful
in this search, have attempted to
describe this wonderful feeling of
love, and each lime it has baffled
