LAUKENS, S. C, July 28, 1890.
Not long ago that notorious docu
ment, tho Sholl manifesto appoarod,
the authorship of which was an
flfiSped by Tue Advertiser as Tin
's. The Advertiser knew that
[man was the only man In South
larollna that could or would have writ
ten tho paper. Tillman has since had
the honesty to acknowledge the father
hood. Ono of the predominantly promi
nent principles proclaimed in the
document is that of rotation in office.?
Six yoars havo passed since the pro
mulgation of that famous or infamous
paper, according to taste. During
these six years Tillman, Irby, Y. J.
i'ope, Homphill, of Abbeville, Ellorbo,
Norton, Tiumerman, Mixon, Cooper,
McSwconoy, Barber, Ir? Jones, Harri
son, Earle, Wiley Jones, Eugene Gary,
Ernest Gary, H. L. Farley, J. Gary
Watts, J. Gary Evans, and sorao hun
dreds more and may be thousands have
held the offices of the State notwlth
, standing the dootrlne of the aforesaid
"manifesto." These above named are
they who, In all probability, aro in
tended to bo covered Into tho family
group so graphically depicted in the
happy and euphoniously descriptive
language of tho classic Whitman as
"pap-suckers." If we understand the
"Unapproachable and invaluable Whit
man, he would have the doctrine of tho
"manifesto" carried into practical
operation and a rotation In office put
into effect in his little rottonbor
ough State of South Carolina. Wc havo
been thinking seriously about it. Wo
have turned it over and over, rovolved
it, and resolved it, and now loavo tho
conclusion of tho matter to our many
discreet and considerate readers.?
There is nothing like authority, tho
views of wise men and sagos to bock up
our opinions, and even Senator Tillman
may need bolstering up in this doc
trine'^! the "rotation in office," as
urged in his now well known Sholl
"manifesto." The reason for the doc
trine may bo that money has a cor
rupting tendency and after a spell, men
conclude that the office belongs to
them, they cease to be honest in office,
and in plain English proceed to violate
the 8th commandment. Now to the
ancient authority. We quoto an old
fellow called Aesopus, a Greek, who
wrote about three thousand years ago
' on tho subject, and since that time
? men have not ohangod, and the lesson
taught by this Aesopus is still put into
tho hands of our youth for their in
struction and example. A fox had
been run down by hounds and badly
handled, torn and lacerated, but man
aged to make his escape, moro dead
than alive. Taking refuge undor the
shade of a friendly bough, a humane
wolf found him covered with a groat
[ swarm of Hies who were oargerly suck
ing his blood, and begged to be allowed
,;; to drive them away. Whereupon, tho
fox protested, saying, lot them alone;
they are now full; their hunger satis
fled, and if driven away, a now and
hungrier swarm would fasten on him
and he would not havo a drop of blood
left. The lively reader will readily ap
prehend, the dangerous doctrine of
Senator Tillman in his Sholl manifesto.
'?Oh that mine enemy had written a
book." In the teeth of this exclama
' tlon, aged forty centuries, the youth
ful Duncan, aspirant to U. S. Sena
tor, writes an epistle to Senator Till
man. The Senator soizes the oportu
nlty with avidity and answers tho in
nocent Dunoan. It was ono of tho Mac
:beths who urged?"Duncan is in his
grave." Tho Senator writes a lot
tor endorsing Evans, his former as
^Goclate in tho Bond businoss?and
takes occasion stoutly to endorse that
gentleman. This, as this world now
goes settles tho business. Duncan
will likely inquire as ho arouses him
to his lndentity?"whero am I at?"?
Others in more ancient and home like
phrase of the child-like Duncan will
inquire?"Doos your mother know you
Judge Earlo, who is canvassing for
the United States Senate, is a man of
imposing and dignified porte and pres
ence. But it don't count in these times.
Gov. Evans, another canvasser, ad
dresses, describes and alludes to him
as?"Sonny." It is "sit down, Sonny"
?"koep cool, Sonny"?retiro to Jeri
cho, Sonny, until your hair grows.".?
Thus it goes. The stylo of tho thing is
amusing, stunning, but clearly np-to

Miss F oride Cuninflham,
(From tho Boston Woman's Journal.)
Asheville, N. C, is proud to have in its
midst Miss Florido Ouningham, one of
tbo most progressive women of the age.
Miss Ouningham adds fresh lustre to a
name already distinguished in the histoiy
of South Carolina. Whou somo years ago
as correspondent for New York World
and Washington Post she won for herself
an enviable repntation in the journalistic
field. The woman suffrago cause has been

of logical strength and inciBive force
With rare culture and brillancy of Intel

practical business judgiment. She has
now launched forth as the first woman
real estate agent south of Mason and
Dixon's line. Her office is one of the
most attractive in the city. Tho admira
tion for a woman who courageously en
ters intocompetition for a livelihood side

MEN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential than the
cigar and other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks lather, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Docs any sane man not
relize this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reflect a minute !
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be reair/ed.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, arc you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of this merited right?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Organ?
