LAURENS.S. C, April 30. 1805.
We have observed among our oxr
changes ? criticisms upon Judge Golf
who has^^DatfOntly signed' several In
Tdn orders, and also certain Attor
neys at law who wont bofore tbo Judgo
upon eertaln showings and asked rellof
for their clients. Certain editors and
others set up a howl at tho Institution
of those proceedings; thoy are adverse
to all action or proceeding and are en
amoured of tho status quo in all olvil
und political affairs. Complaints are
J| .made against Messrs. Pope and Cald
well and Douglas ?fc Obcar, that thoy
have rushed into tho courts and dis
turbed the stagnant political waters In
South Carolina. Thoso nervous peoplo
are greatly to bo pitied; in some cases
the condition results from the natural
organization; In others It is the rosult
of some abnormal complaint that has
become chronic for want of prompt
' treatment; In others it prococds from
an exagerated egotism that would dony
to others the liberty of action, politi
cal or otherwiso, that they assumo thoy
. ntonoshpuld be. endowned with. Just
so. Charles the Second was content
with the status and Cromwoll and his
Ironsides stalwarts kept things stir
ring and tho good ordor was broken;
biter .Tohnlo Wllkos made a to-do and
kept lip a monstrous disturbance; tho
American revolutionists had an Inning,
and George 3d had his siestas brokon
upon by disturbing accounts from tho
in his colonies, and lator tho
ioh revolutionists wont With all tho
item world Into hysterics ovor tho
ling of a King, and some throe mil
ions women and mon. All this rost
|nes8, and as you may suggest, outru
iaoh of proprloty culminated
in giving to tlvLs_genor^Jyj^j|}oiwiinlJ
women tho HttloliTjor'fy^ncy on joy.-^i
The world will not stand still. Tho
status quo was a good thing for Charles
2d and Louis XVI. But in this ago of
schools and colleges and philosophy,
why should there bo such a furor ovor
tho doings of a fow lawyers and a doz
en or so judges. Thoro should bo some
manhood, somo show of oquablo de
meanor, somo grit to endure and keop
cool, when only a tomtit Is struck by
lightning. Tho readers of tho Adver
tiser will not go Into fits at high jinks
by Tillman, Evans, Irby, Samps Popo,
Goff, "Tray, Blanch, or Sweetheart,"
big dogs or little dogs. Calmly, coolly
and? straight-forward, tho world moves,
and men who are men will not, consider
or regard your passions or your proju
dloos or your Interests. Ono other
point, it may bo woll to note right
here: this is a thinking ago; It Is ontor
prlslng,courage has not fullod mon nor
wbmen and all around us stand horoos
and heronlos who will not yield ono
*\_inoh of honest consclonco in tho fane of
millions In opposition. In tho mean
while if Goff'8 injunctions hold, lot
them hold; if your judges are dishon
est remove them; if your course is
right and tyranny oppresses it, light it
out. As you travel through this life
you will oncountor much Ii 1th nnd ras
cality; much cleanness, noblo virtue
and generosity. Complaining and
howling will do no good; boar tho ills
or remove thom. Stand for tho right
nnd the fight Is finished.
Ex-Governor Northorn, a farmer, is
bringing ten thousand white farmers
to Georgia, as pormanont settlors from
the north-west. Thoy will bring down
fifty thousand moro. Tho fow of us in
this State must bo pitch-forking onch
jftfcor, and how can wo bopo to havo
Hiers join in tho cat fight. Pcaco
Hu reignod in Georgia when Tom
t^kon' gooso was cooked^
every republican In these Statos is
really a rascal, wo must havo a stumpy
road to travel, indeed, as our junior
Senator, would remark. Cleveland is
tho only man in thirty 11 vo years who
haa managed to ride It rough shod
without stumbling or halt. What ro
llet huvu Tom Watson and Tillmah
brought to their confiding following?
Whero are wo at anyway?
A lawyer Governor, n lawyor supor
intendant of education, a lawyor At
torney General, a lawyor at tho head
of the rum bureau, no wondor at tho
rum timo wo aro having with tho
Vory fow can divlno how all thoso
law-suits como upon tho state and on
tall upon hor so 'many assistant coun
sol (Charleston kldglovo lawyers) at
beautiful figures. He has boon in tho
ring and knows all about it.
Samps Pope's four years training
with T?lman makes him an ugly cus
tomer to doal with. It Is not tho first
e of the pupil gcMing tho whip
and of tho mastor.
Tho white motal soems to gain
strength In tho north-wost. This may
be a sheen tho light of which Senator
Tillman has been anxious about.
The identity of tho "orlglnall" Doll
Boyd is still a puzzling point. Now
isn't it about the same thing if sho Is
or if she isn't.
* ? *
They talk of honest olectlon laws.
Of what avail without honest officials
to enforce thom?
* ? ?
Gov. Evans was tho archlteot of tho
Dispensary law, though not tKo author,
Why should ho not be the finisher?
* ? *
Gov. Evans has appointed ton addi
tional constables to stand off Goff.
There is nothing liko whistling to
keep the courage up, except tall talk.
Ever since Tillman came, ti.o poor
old State has got Into so much law i ng
and trouble that sho has had to employ
lawyers from Newborry,- Barnwoll,
York, Charleston, Klchland and old
Virginia to support the knees of her
many Attorney Genorals. And still
thoy have no mercy. "Lay on Mo
Duff" Is the motto of the cruel minori
ty* And the poor old State that in the
good old days was won't to defy a Jack
son erl?s in her agony:
"And when I stoop to beg for mercy,
I meet with none, but wfee versa
To the Memory of My Dear Father,
Our dear departed on the morn
ing of the 20th of December, 1894. |
How hard it is, dear father, to say
thou art gone?yes forever gone
from earth. His death was caused
by an injury received live days pre
vious to his death. He bore his
suffering with the resignation and
fortitude of a true Christian. We
ministered to his every want, but
all that kind and loving friends
could do was in vain. He was so
weak toward the last he could not
speak to us, but he replaced every
tender caie with a glance of unut
He was a kind and loving father,
and the void made in our household
can never be filled. In vain do wc
listen for his footsteps, but it is for
ever hushed. Farewell, dear father,
wc know thou art gone from us
never to return, but thank God wc
can go to you where there will be
no more parting, no more tears.
May we all bo able to say, 4'Thy
will oh Lord be done," and think
that death did not come too soon to
one so kind and gentle.
His attending physician was with
him when his spirit took its flight.
Wc arc all immersed in sorrow at
his departure. No more will wc
sec his dear face, or hear his loving
voice. I will miss you, dear father,
but I will endure the separation,
knowing that God docs all things
A light from our household is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vncant in our home
Which never can be rilled.
Wc miss thee from our home, dear pa,
Wc miss thee from thy place ;
Oh life is""ttrenry without
f The sunshine of *thy face.
We wait for thee at eve's sweet hour,
When stars begin to burn ;
Wc linger 'round this lonely place
And look for thy return.
But all in vain thy coming step,
We list through all the hours ;
Wc only hear the wind's low voice,
That whispers through the flowers.
We do not sec thee now, dear pa,
We do not feel thy love;
But on our wounded spirit falls
A blessing from above.
To luce, oh ! it will be so sweet,
With all our sins forgiven,
To mingle with our loved and lost,
In our sweet home in heaven.

Harris Lithia Water.
The most remarkable Water on the Market to-day which is
Shown by its Analysis and Testimonials of the Most
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Read what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to say for
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had long been affected with kidney troubles. I had tried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I had tried the
Western waters and all others that I could hear of, and I have no hesi
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even approximately as
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo Lithia Water
when I heard of this. I do not expect to use the Buffalo Water again.
"When J went to Harris Lithia Springs, I had to be assisted out of
my chair. After remaining two weeks I could get about as^good as
anybody. It acted on me like a charm?quickly and effectively. This
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every person
who has tried it will agree with mc in the belief that it is the most re
markable water in the country. From a simple interest in suffering hu
manity. I would like very much to see it given a trial.
0. A. BALDWIN, Columbia, S. C.
Harris Lithia Water Co., Harris Springs, S. C.
A&hevills, N. C, September, 9, 1893.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
We have, been selling the Harris Lithia Water for some time, and
find it a ready seller; those who have tried it arc loud in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to cither the Buffalo or Londonderry
Waters. Wc predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
more generally known.
Yours very truly, RAVSOR & SMITH,
Prosperity, S. C. Feb. 28, 189.1.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
I have been under the treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
affords me pleasure to say that I have received more benefit from the
use of Hanis Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
