The town of Laurens bas reach
ed that critical point, nt which we
must "do or die." Our town hus for
the past few years made such prog
ressund growth,'ns is seldon?sccn in
tho South; und even now tin? pros
pects grow brighter! Koch rising
sun lights tho foundation of some
Improvement; each train that ar
rive.- brings some new comer, and
everything points to a still greater
boom for Laurens. Hut amid the
din and clash of hammer and saw,
we hear no sounds upon a factory.
Why is it thu! (bis (own, with her
enterprise, can sit idly and soo the
mighty march of improvement
going on ?nd yet md raise* a (inger
to catch the boom and make it per
manent. We must turn the tide
in the direction of factories, if we
would increase our population and
have prosperity. We need and
mu.*/ have one of tho largest cotton
manufacturing establishment In
tho South. An- our business men
afraid to invest in such an cuter
prize, when cotton factories in this
State have fer several years paid
as high as twenty-five per cent div
idends; und they lowe the .insu
rance that for every dollar they in
vest, the North will semi (Ive? All
around us we see those factories

why? Simply because wc expect

? '.Vit h .luring tho past yens
bas eclipsed the record of any sec
tion in America, and remanded to
the backgrounds the most dashing
section of thc West. This is due to
the fact that tin? world is beginning
to realize that the place to manu
facturo cotton goods, is the place
whore the cotton is grown.
What would such an enterprise
be worth to this town? In the (irs!
place it would ?nhl nt least the
freight on it bub- of colton from
this place to Charleston, to'every
bale of cotton sold. As a cotton
market the advantage would lu?
incalculable. Cnn any business
man fail to see that ttn in?rense of
our population, of from ?OO to loon
operatives, spending nt least 85
cents per div. would nlfect his
business? \\o must have some
thing of (bo kind (?Iso all our boom
will come to naught. No Southern
town can expect to rise that dot's
not turn ils attention towards fac
tories. A meeting bas be. n coiled
on this important question, ami it
is hoped that the men of means
will turn out and not let the mut
ter end in words.
This is a fast age. Every day
brings some new devlopemonts,
but tho ideas ol tho groat Oeorgia
Evangelists, Sam Jo?os ami Smalls,
in bringing political issues into the
pulpit, ls by no means new. A un -
ion between Church ami State has
been the Utopian dream of ninny a
statesman, and has proved a reek
upon which tin? ship of many a re
public has split. The (mureil bas
a mission to perform, so has the
State; but they ear. host accomplish
their missions by separate action,
As un organization the Church
shoal ? have nothing to do with po
lities; nor cnn the State interfere
with religion without destroying
the germ of that plant which we cull
civil liberty. To escape persecu
tion at the hands of religious big
ots, who executed their nefarious
schemes in the name of the State,
our forefathers dared to throw od'
tin; yoko of oppression, and our free
American Institutions stand today
as a perpetual reminder of the fol
ly of attempting to combine relig
ion and politics. Rev. Sum Smalls
luis possibly accomplished some
good since be entered the ministry,
but it is doubt fd I if he eau continue,
so long as persists in preaching to
Southern people on tin' ''Sin of Sla
very ns lt existed in tim South."
Wo do not see that this text is
calculated to advance the cause of
pure and undefiled religion. Tim
War is over and slavery OS an inst i
tution no longer exists in any form.
Should ho conclude to preach ocea
slonly on sins as they exist to-duy,
he might ibid his labor* crowned
with greater success.
Gov. Sn KPPARD hun noted wisely in
refusing to dill UH extra Session
of the Legislature for tho purpose of
giving State aid to Charleston.
We have no sympathy whatever
wita those up country newspapers
that occasionally hurst out with
uhuse 111?I vituperation against the
low country. Anything, however
slight, that ten.ls to those two sec
tions of the State should be thrown
aside. There is no reason why
Laurens County should not sis will

but tho whole thing is wrong. In fuel

SPURGEON IN THE PULPIT. \
Listening to the Noted Baptist Frenchs*
-The Ooonlua; Servloo.
Very fortunately Spurgeon waa at
homo on thia our last possible Sabbath
in London, and no timo was lont in de
ciding to bear thia groat Baptist preacher
und divine. Tho day waa delightfully
cool, and at an early hour wo wore on
top of a 'bus and headed for tho "taber
nacle." The ser vice waa announced for
ll a. m., and at 10:30 wo atood in front
of tho groat plain structure that stands
bi a rather poor part of tho east aido of
tho city. People wore gathering hur
riedly, thougb not in groat numbors as
yet, and wo wero directed to enter
through a gatoway leading aloug by th?
side of tho church. On tho inside of tho
gato wo wero handed what we HU|>
posed wero tickets of admission, but on
examination proved to bo little envel
opes in which tho visitor is requested to
placo what ho chooses to give and drop
tho amount in a box by the way, aa ho
passes into tho church. Thia wo did,
and once on tho insido wo found a
long row of earlier comers than our
selves seated in chairs by tho wall. Wo
wero told to "move on and take our
places." and those wo fouud by tho nido
or rather back of the high platform and
amt pulpit; but tho kind usher Raidi
"Wait here and I will ?lo tho boat for
you I can," and as he hurried from point
to point directing others where to _;o, in
passing us would aay, "Ho patient, and
1 will seo what I can do." We bearii
him ask ono after another of tho "?H>\V
holdera" if they had any room, and a?
room was found some ono was quickly
shown to it, HO that just t>efore the min
ister took his place upon the stund wo
were all provided with good seats just
in front, tho only inconvenionco being
that we hail to look up at an anglo of
about 150 degrees to see lils faco.
All this impressed mo tho moro from
the faci that I have so long boon accus
tomed to seeing audiences assemble, and
seeing persons waiting for seats, und I
recall tho saying of Mr. Beecoer, that ho
thought that a good usher at tho door
could do nix mt. as much good as the
preacher in tho pulpit; and surely this
ono usher at Mr. Spurgeon'! church had
laid his prayers that morning, and no
one could have done more or tatter than
did he. I should like to some time give
him a seat at our table in Chicago, and
a good bed at night. i

were told that his health is not linn:
hut in voici? and movements ho showed
no sign of weakness, He impresses ono
as ticing a man of deep, honest convic
tions and purpose in his lifo work, ami
he is wholly free from mannerisms and
affectations. When the groat audonce
was seated he arose and ottered a short
luit impressive prayer; after this he an
nounced a hymn, which was hst in the
Ringing by a plain man with a
Strong, idear voice, the audience
teemingly all joining. There was
no instrumental music, and the
song service, if not of a high order
Artistically, waa certainly not want
ing in volume and earnestness; I liked
it; and wished something like it might
Ix. in every church bl America. After
the hymn-tho stanzas of which the
preacher rend before they were sung -
came the reading of the 110th Psalm
nu I (heseventh chapter of Hebrews, with
length) commente, and then n second
hymn nftor the mininer of tho lits'.; and
this was followed by the longer prayer.
One could readily un leraland that tho
preacher prays 1 not alone S imlay and

heartfelt communion with Hod. anti re

The opening service, including a third
hymn, lasted most three-quarters of an ?
hour, and then came the serin . i from
Heb. vii, 23-25. It was upon the inter
cession of Christ, mid thro bout was
natural and easy in delivery, plain in
language and simple in method. Tho
great preacher ia not what one would
call a great thinker; lr., mind works by
accretion, or gathering, rather than by
?volution, or unfolding and growth in
the development of a theme. But ho is
earnest and honest, and evidently be
lieves what h" says; noi does he mako
any apology for saving it.-Or. II. W.

It takes a very generous person in
deed to be faithful to a self-arranged
plan of generosity. It is often true
that people hate their proteges when
thi>se they have helped have grown IH?
yond tho need of their aid. The reason
nf this is not always black ingratitude
on the part of the recipient of favor; it
ls just as often duo to tho restless van
ity and insatiate selfishness of tho ono
who had set up for a patron saint, and
who, failing to lind a constant prostra
tion of spirit in tho aided on?, tunin
upon this one with cursing instead of
Tho truest unselfishness ls that which
does not consider duty in the relations
of life as an abstract good. Duty is a
Hno watchword, when it implies privi
lege. Too many people make it a mis
erable slavery, by bringing no froodoin,
no pleasure Into ita performance. There,
is no such thing as duty in gratitude. A
grateful heart olfers its own reward
without any forcing. Hut a giver who
demands incenae-burnirig is certain not
to get it. A morbid desire for perpetual
adoration can not, in tho nature of
things, be gratified.

WESTERN AND EASTERN SCHOOLS.

l uit An Obaerver'a Commenta.
Among those who linger at the springs
I met E, F. Hates, who has been en
gaged for a number of years in teaching
in tho western state?. I asked Mr.
Hates about the relative educational I
facilities in tho east and west, and ho
Raid; "1 must say that my observation i
is in favor of tho western schools. The
faet is that in the progressive western
states they have talo n advantage of all
tho experiences of all tin- other states in 1
the Union and aro profiting by thia ex
perience. They build their school
houses on modern plans; they arrange
their courses of study with reference to
modern plans; they require of their
teachers a standard of excellence and .
capacity for imparting knowledge which
an* in accordance with modern ideas,
The ordinary country schools art? much
advanced over tho country schools of
"Tho teachers, as a rule, aroa brighter
class of young women. You see in New
England, tho women school teachers are
sort of settled down in the idea that they
are going to teach for a lifetime and they
become duh tinder that impression. Hut
young women who teach school out west
expect that after two or three sesiona
they will get married, and they are look
ing forward to something beside the
routine of school life to keep them
brighter, and, whatever others may
think, it makes them work more effec
tively in my judgment. Tho country
schools generally run from nine to ten
mouths in the year, while in most parts
of New England there are only two ses
sions, the winter and tho Hummer school?,
lasting each about three months. They
have no siinuix>r schools out west, but
hold to the idea that tho heated term ia
no time for mental exertion."
In speaking of the difference between
the people as he had observed them in
the east and in tho wost. Mr. H ites said:
"Young men of New England who went
Into the western states to seek their for
tunes timk with them the very lifo blood
of the east. The younger generation in
the V t which has sprung up from this
stock under the invigorating influences
of the new climate und soil is a strong
and vigorous element than which there
is nothing more |s>werful in this coun
try. The growth of western influence in
the |M)litics and tho practical statesman
ship of the country may l>e traeed di
rectly to this new element in civilisa
tion."-Saratoga Springs lx>r. New York

What is the butter bird? Humboldt
in his travels in South America rot?ords a
visit to Csripe, where is tho cavern of
the gu?charo bird. The name which
the cavern bean signifies the "mino of
fat," because from the young of tho
birds v. ?neb inhabit it an immonse
(piantity of fat in annually obtained.
Theso birds aro about tho size of our
common fowl, with wings which expand
to three feet and a half. All day long
they dwell in tho cavern, and, like our
owls, only come forth at night. They
subsist entirely on fruits, and have very
powerful I teaks, which are necessary to
crack the rough nuts anti reeds which
form part of their food.
Midsummer is the harvest timo for the
fat. Tho Indians enter the cavern
aioed with long isden; the nesta are at
tached to lades in tho roof about sixty
feet above their heads; they break tbeso
with tho poles, and tho young hints fall
down and aro instantly killed. Under
neath their bodies is a layer of fat,
which is t it off, and is the object
sought. At tho mouth of tho cavern
huts are erected of palm leaves, and
there, in pots of ela?, tho natives molt
tho fat which lins been collected. This
is known as tho butter of the gu?charo;
it is so pure that it may be kept for up
wards of a year without becoming ran
