It must bo admitted freely that
tho cash trade at this place has been
larger than over before. The peo
ple had more money than usual, but
thc chief reason was that our mer
chants have been able to accommo
date a larger percent, of tho Lau

tho men who make a town. And,
measured thus, Laurens is destined

Our reasons for opposing this

inadequate to give anything like
good schools. Wo now have good
schools, with low tuition, but
oller free tuition at any school
however inferior, will destroy
those that now flourish, This

Familiarity Breeds Contempt
In our Intercourse with peopl
there is a middle line between
. cold and stiff manner on the on
. side, and a free, don't care style o
thc other. This middle line is har
1 to strike, but when we do lind it i
constitutes the most attract! V
. stylo of good manners. Sometime
people err on tho one side an
- sometimos on the other. Too niue
stiffness botrnys a cold, unsociabl
' nature, tinged with haughtiness
r that repels, while too much fami
. iarity excites disgust by showing
want of respect. Of tho two ex
" tremes, familiarity is regarded n
' the most offensive. In the snore
i precinct of the homo circle, th
more freo and familiar we aro th
better. Parents should be free an
easy with their children enterin
into their sports and innocent pass
times, listening to their little str?
ries, and assisting Hiern in carry
lng out thoir amusements, an;
thereby they render home nttrac
five. Brothers and sisters shotlli
cultivate tho utmost freedom to
wards each other consistent wi tl
propriety, decency and affection.
Among the members Ol a house
hold nothing is more un fort limit
and unbecoming than a cold, re
servo and cautious manner, as i
(?ach ono were afraid that the!
rights would be invaded or the!
dignity insulted. Hut In society 1
certain reserve is always require?
by good breeding and politeness
Two friends, hov ever intimate am
confidential, should observe a Iimi
to nil prying into each other's nf
fairs. Neither one should take tin
liborty to inquire into tho other',
little personal matters too minute
ly, as lor example, to ask what
price he paid for a ring, or a watch
ora syit of clothes,-whether hr.
bought them on credit or paid cash
<fec. Neither ono should feel at lib
erty to criticise the other's personal
appearance, mode of pronouncing
words, or t.'if fauiis of either one'?
friends, or any other apparently
trifling matter in which ho is not
directly concerned, without prefac
ing such criticism with a respect
ful apology for the liborty tints
taken. Such prying curiosity, al
though it may bo considered allow
able between Intimate friends,
tends to diminish tho respect they
should entertain for each other,
and when nutual respect ls weak
oned friendship cannot last. True
friendship recognizes dignity and
worth, and these cannot be trifled
wlttw Every ono should rtrlve to
support some dogreo of dignity.
This is an Important element of
character, and a protection to ono's
virtue. Familiarity weakens dig
nity and makes a person cheap in
the eyes of his fellows. Wo al
ways feel contempt for what is
cheap. No man can a fib rd to give
up that, the loss of which will lower
his value on tho social market.
One need not bo cold and stiff iii
order to he dignified, nor need he
be too free and familiar in order to
be social and pleasant. Tho most
lasting and agreeable intercourse
may be kept up between persons
who mutually understand that
there is a certain point beyond
which neither can go. There lb a
certain privacy which every one
should keep sacred to himself, and
into which in eye but his own
should be permitted to enter.
When a man opens himself all out
to the common gaze so that every
body knows all about bim, bois re
garded as public property and is
rated low. familiarity cheapens
him and all men despise him.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
(From Our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, Jan. 20th, 1888.
The retirement of Mr. Lamar
from the great ofllce which he has
so ably and satisfactoty filled for
ncariy three years, was the occa
sion of many sincere expressions
of regret. Especially regretful
were those wdio have been associa
ted with tho Southern statesmen
in tho discharge of public dutios,
for it is the unanimous testimony
of all who have had personal con
tact with him that he is one of tho
most affable, generous and kind
hearted of men. This feeling was
manifested while the employes of
thc Interior Department were
thronging in hundreds to say fare
well to tho Kx-Secretary. There
were ninny eyes dim and sorrowful
Thine is little doubt of Mr. La
mar's lina! confirmation by the Sen
ate to l>e a Justice Of tho Supreme
Court, although republican malig
nity may postpone it for so mo lime.
Tho extremists who are opposing
him already realize defeat, and in
their rogo have resorted to dilato
ry tactic- as their only chance for
manufacturing partisan capital.
The nomination- of Messr -. Vilas
and Dickinson for Secretary of the
Interim* and Postmaster General,
respectively, will doubtless be con
firmed at tito first executive session
of tile Senate. Political malice has
been unable to raise any sort of is
sue in the en >o of either.
Il was lor tho purpose of reliev
ing tho situation us affected by
theso ponding nominations, that
Mr Lamar magnanimously resign
ed one office before be was assured
of another. Whatever chances
there were to take Ito prefered to
take alone, without involving oth
ers in the complication. The Post
master General has refrained from
making at least two important ap
pointments In his Department on
account of Hie impending ( bange.
Mindi anxiety ls felt among the.
Republican employes of tho Interi
or Department because they know
that a new Secretary must pr?vido
a few places for his friends. If I
had tho ear of Mr. Vilas 1 would
give him al least one hint In this
direction. There i*. a certain Re
publican Chief of a division in tlii
Dopnrtmcnt who has been drawing
a salary of two thousand dollars si
year for fifteen years, and still he
ls not tired. This man's duties ari
few and simple, and the place ii
not in the classified service.
The Congressional mill is grind
ing slowly but not very finely, ul
though since tho re-assembling ol
Congress,moro than nine hundred
new bills have been introduced
Some surprise is expressed (Ital
tho great state of New York is not
lepresontcd on tho Ways Means
Committee, an omission which ha*
probably nwt occured before in tilt
whole history of tho country. Tin
framing of a new turill'bill, tobi
presented to tho House by th h
Committee, is progressing rapidly
and satisfactorily, and it is beliov
ed will bo ready for consideration
within the next two woeks.
Tho Invalid Pension Committee
probably learned a valuable lessan:
from its experience at the last ses
sion. If so it will not again pre
sent an absured bill liku that veto
ed by the President, but instead. (I
moasuro allowing something like

Senator Heck, of Kentucky, whe
has been for the past four years
one of the staunchest Democratic
leaders of the Senate, was tin; reci

Scotchman is the only man ever sc
honored by the land of blue grass,
fair women, old Bourbon and linc
horses. Mr. Huck Is e-tccincd foi
his abilities and liked for bis geni
al nature. He is regarded as quite
an authority on questions relating
finance and tito tariff.
There aro two factions of local
Republicans in Washington, and,
as heretofore,they are all torn up
over thc result of tho recent prima
ry meeting, whoso duty it ls to se
lect two delegates to the Chicago
National Convention. There is lik
ely to be n contest.

Tho subject, in discussion be

self lina become so personal, tlltlt 1
really deem it advisable to discon
tinuo it, and allow tho matter to
Bink into oblivion ; but ray humau

Tho article written by Thorough j
Buss was n source of extrema dis- I

ised myself an argument on tho
science of music; but nins! tho
learned gentleman is encompassed
willi various dillleulties, which
well-nigh overwhelm him. Ile
considers "discretion tho hotter
part of valour," and ignores tho sui -
joct. Ile says that "Eileen Allan?
lia denies that tho article was in
tended fer him." I most emphati
cally assert that my lil ile poem was
intended for Iiis benefit, und I en
deavored in a provious article to
present my reason for so doing.
But intentionally or otherwise per
haps his brains ure too weak, to
comprehend ail iden, unless stated
in a simple matter of fact language.
The idea, I think Intended to con
vey was this, that he was guilty of
my accusation, but tho mutier un
expected to mc was, that Ito would
so plainly acknowledge ids guilt,
by replying to my little poem.
Why should I endeavor to pull
down bis profession? Will tho
worthy gentleman inform mo what
ho claims us Iiis profession ? I have
recently boon informed that he ls
principally a person of leisure, and
Spends the golden moments of life,
in doing nothing. If this bo true,
I I leave tho entire field to him, and
and promise not to disturb Iiis equ
animity, and have no desire lo
clash with his profession.
I ora not informed in regard to
the working of a canc-mill, but it
seems a happy faculty to bo blessed
with command of language, und
expand my conscience as occasion
requires. Vanity appears to bo an
important factor, in the coniposl
\ tlon oftbo nature of Thorough Bass,
i and il will unconsciously assert it
self, in every utterance, lie imag
ines "his reputation established."

with expressive words, but Web

ficiently forcible, to express utter
contempt, for such an assertion, ll
