proximo, but for what and
[?an open question. Tho Po
rt havo called a convontion of
own to put out candidates for
.?nor and Stato olilcors and tho
jcratic organization, through
committee, has, llko tho swarthy
Ho, lost Its occupation. Tho call
ho 7th of Juno thoroforo is ontiroly
rfiuous; peoplo ought not to bo
jrud unnocossarlly; thoro Is enough
y with that which looks to a prac
l ond. Tho nowspapors are guoss
iho mooting Is Intended toarrango
hpaign. Well? Whon the ticket
it out tho candidates can only pose,
t; will bo nobody to contest, to op
, to uuory, to raiso an issue. Tho
ubl'nunis will hardly campaign
i oi iigala*t. thorn; thoy are dead as
(us C.eiur and will hardly rovlvo to
ko a live campaign. So then, tho
ospuct for a lively political scrim
igo in- South Carolina is a barren
jsort. The idea of listoning to dry
do sided oulogies on the school houses
to havo built-in the last live yoars is
rcouraging to those of us who enjoy
0 rattlo of tho kottle drum, the rush
nd tho shout of the excited mass, the
irtvor tones of the young man eloquent,
die keon repartee, noble and
'stilling poriods, the loud and resound
lug acclaim. All this we aro to forego,
't would 80om that thoro are two can
didates for U. S. Senator, but this
ffloe is filled by tho Legislature,
'hero may be others; tho two oandi
ites haV? Uo monopoly of tho field.
Besides, it would be a now departure
nd extra-Judicial to arrange a cam
aign for aspirants to tliat ollico.
iroly, most assuredly, tho candidates
v tho Legislature ought to be able to
cm a deeont judgment to exercise
:o duty imposed upon them and so
jet a Senator. Bosidos should Butlor
.nd Tillnian bo the candidates then
hero is no issue between thorn: they
'Klieve and hold alike upon all vital
-Mies. Still they might pass in review
ul let the peoplo look at them; it
nht be a free show and many might
ike advantage of tho educational ad
vantages?a sort of Chaw-talk-qua.
As we have hinted tho prospect is
lark and droary. Nevertheless, some
hing turns up now and tlion and a bc
..iad-qntil driver rises to exclaim that
he days of chivalry are not over.
Why then may wo not expect sonic
Allant Reformer, like tho redoubtable
Juixoto on his noblo Rosinanto, to
?Jive his plumo and charge the vast

"Dear Sirs:?I believe In Hood's Harsnpiullla.
i will toll you why. I havo suffered from In
herited scrofula from child hood. When 37 years
of a.^e, lay eyes became strangely nffected. I
could not read after sunset, and when I would
clo5o my tyes, I could not open them; but on
WhlollQVer side I lay, on that side I could open
my cy<?. This condition continued about two
years, mid was succeeded by

I was. often so weak that
I Could Scarcely Walk i

scarcely attend to my business (school teaoh

story draws to a close. I begun tho use ot
Hood's Sarsaparilla a llttlo less than a year ago,
and took flvo bottles. When I began I had no
