year ago, with many misgivings as
to its future, but with the conviction
that energy, enterprise, ami a strict
adherence to principles would meet
a just reward, wo launched out up
on the sea ot* Journalism. Young
in years, and without experience,
it was expected that we should
make blunders. Mistakes we have
made, and doubtless serious ones,

pursued, ii has been from a consci

The success that lins crowned our
.first year's labors in this new Hold,
Is gratifying in the extreme, and
we can gratefully say, beyond our
most sanguine expectations. Our
subscriptions have steadily in
creased from t he ft rs bj and to-day, I
with a genuine feeling of pride, we |

visitor. While our advertising
patronage has not been as large as
it might have been, it has come
from tho substantial business men
of this community, and it affords
us infinite pleasure to know that
those w in? us ? our columns have
done so w ith tho belief that they
get full value in return.
Tm: AnVKlirrsKU has made
some warm friends, and during the
first year of its existence, many fa
vors ami courtesies hu ve been be
stowed, for which we sincerely
return thanks. In the future, asin

use our best endenvours to make

Prom our exchanges we notice
that almost every County Is nov.
excited over tin' fnrniors' move
ment, indeed, we see nothing new
111 any. The -ame program ob
served by Laurens is now being
followed In other places, and we
sincerely trust that no greater
harm will result from this w hole
sale denunciation of existing in
stitutions, and these incendiary
speeches, than has fallen upon us.
Laurens, aller the Columbia Con
vention, took the load ill this new I
movement. When it first appeared,)
it seemed that the farmers of thc
land had determined to organize j
to promote agriculture. They de
nied other motives. At length, by.
degrees, a different eli mont crept
Into thc organizations. I'm- u time 1
it appeared thal some men w hose j
records were nt least questionable,
whose views were radical, and.
whose only object w as self-agran-1
dizeiiicilt, would sway tho minds
of tho populace, and upon hare
promises of deliverance from the
evils of the liorfr,-promises impos
sible of fulfilment, and evils toa
great extent imaginary, it appear* d
at Hines that into such hands the
government might fall.

thc part of sore-head politicians to
overthrow the powers that be. It
is tho legitimate offspring of the
new deal agitation, which took thc
rounds several months ago. It is
nothing more serious than a kick

A correspondent in tho ZVeics und
( 'ouvier a-ks If thc insulated or non
Insulated lightning rod- are safest.
The Xews and Courier suya:
"There is no question, we be
lieve, that n rod must h.' perfectly
Insulated in order to protect the
building to which it io attached.
Otlierwlao the electric lluid i-* not
only attracted to the house, but ls
likely to be led Into it by thc sup
ports of the rod, thus exposing the
Inmutes t<> the very danger they
seek to avoid."
The Xeten and Courier is mis
taken. There ls a question ns to
the best mode of protecting houses
from lightning, and we Incline to
wurds the theory of uninsu
lated rods. The new theory, ad
vanced by dorman scientists, is
that the greatest good to lie de
rived from a lightning rod, is when
it Ls placed in direct contact with
tho building. Electricity, duringa
storm, Is not only In the ?iii* and tho
clouds, but permeates houses, trees,
Ao., and consequently, tho danger
is that trees, houses, ive., become
over-charged. By having tho rod
at Inched directly to tho building,
inasmuch ?is it is a better conductor
thu ti wood or stone, the electricity
is drawn from the building all the
while, and passes OlF, the rod acting
as a safety-valvo and preventing an
over-charge. When tho rod is
once electrified, it being a good
i onductor of electricity, the current
will not leave Ulltll drawn oil* by a
better conductor, which is found in
the moist etrth. Some w ould sup
that a lightning rod is only of ser
vice when the current is so great
as td be perceptible. This ls U mis
take, lt- work begins whenever
the slightest current comes in con
tact with it, and it continues thus
to draw off electricity during tho
continuance of a storm. The groat
good is In neutralizing positivo and
