aro boginntng to rccovor from the cold

people havO realized tho fact that thoro
is no money in politics only for tho of

must work whether wo have a Constit

What our people want more than any
thing else Is a lowering of taxes, re
duce tho salary and costs of all offices
to correspond with the purchasing pow
er of mojioy. It is a shame to continue
the salaries the same as when cotton
was 15 or 20 cents a pound. A man can
work for half the pay now and livo as
well as ho ever did. Wo need reform
along that Uno I remember very well
that our Senator stated in his political
career by advocating that oourso, but
as soon as elected ho takes tho salary
with him. The same cry was made by
others before tho people. Tho former
government was charged with compet

see where there has been any retrench

thinks he can manage tho neuro. Ho
concedes to him tho right to vote, but
thinks he can pursuudeaml bribe them
to vote with him so as to make a larger

Senator would have so readily taken
up tho negro, but wo will sec what we
will seo. Let us have patience and wait

I TEACHERS' COLUMN.
J. A. JJADDHN, Editor
AH communications ior this column
should bo sent to Jas. A. Madden,
Madden, S. C.
Some time ago nt the instance of
our School Commissioner a County
Teachers' Association was organ
ized. The purpose of this associa
tion was for the teachers to meet
and exchange views as to the best
methods of teaching.
One of the plans adopted, as a
means of improvement, was ?tbe
teachers' column, to be edited by
one of tins number.
All the teachers in the county
were asked to contribute something
to this column, if nothing more
than a report of the condition of
At lirst there was some degree of
enthusiasm for the success of this
association, but the interest seemed
to have lagged. This should .not
be. There is no reason why we
should not have a good association
and a readable teachers' column in
our county papers.
However, this cannot be done
without the co operation of the
If eacli teacher in the county will
contribute one article for the column
dining the summer yve will have a
column tliat will be read with in
terest by all friendb ot education.?
An opportunity will be given each
teacher to contribute something for
the column, or refuse to do so.
The board of examiners have
made provisions for an institute,
which will begin its session on the
loth instant, and will continue one
month. Competent teachers have
been secured to conduct each de
partment, and the institute will be
in every way worthy of the attend
ance ol all teachers in the county.
No doubt every teacher would
like to have a better school next
year than he had this year. There
should ilso be a corresponding de
sire on his part to do belter and
more thorough work.
The teachers' institute affords you
an opportunity to equip yourselves
for this work; and we sincerely
hope it will be taken advantage of
generally by those most interested,
for we cannot afford in 0 is fast age,
teeming with quick practical ideas,
to enter noon the- arena of intellect
ual life unprepared to reap the ben
elits or to do what we can. Then
let. us prepaic ourselves to train the
minds ol the young in a true and
noble way, that they may be pic
parcd to wave the sceptre over all
that is evil in our beloved land of
liberty, and plant truth firmly on
the rocks of patriotism and godli
ness. W. E. Hunter.

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 foi
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had long been affected with kidney troubles. I hail fried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Cotter 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 ngair.
"When 1 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 nnd effectively. This
water is now being hugely sold in Columbia, and 1 think every person
who has tried it will agree with me 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.
C. A. BALDWIN, Columbia, S. C.

Asiieyiu.k, N. C, September, ".?, 1893.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
We have been selling the Han is I .ithia Water for some time, and
lind it a ready seller; those who have tried it are loud in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to either the Buffalo or Londonderry
Waters. Wc predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
more generally known.
Yours very truly, RAYSOR & SMITH,
Pitosi'Kit ITV , S. C. Feb. 28, 18?4.
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 fr< m the
use of Hariis Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
