Capt. John J. McUowau.
The subject of tbie notice, whose death
is annouced in another place* was no
ordinary man. He was the son of Wil
liam McQowan who emigrated to this
country from Ireland about the begin
ning of this century and a brother of
General Samuel McGowanof Abbeville.
There were other sons and daughters
who have strongly impressed themselves
in the State and throughout the South.
We regret that the announcement of
Gapt. McGowan's death gives ub time
nor space to spoak as we would like of
the lessons illustrated by his strong per
sonality and marked traits. His natural
powers were superior; in public ques
tions he was alwas interested giving to
them carefnl investigation; arrived at a
conclusion he was steadfast in his con
sistency and unflinching in his convic
tions. No man who ever lived in Lau
rens had sounder viows on public ques
tions. The writer knew him well and
knew him to be a man. Love of his
State was a passion. Ho has been gath
ered to his fathers and there is only to
bow to the dispensation. Ho leaves sons
and daughters, among them F. P. Mc
Gowan, Esq., of our city.
Death of Youug Joseph G. Humbert.
The death of young Josoph G. Hum
bert, son of Gapt. J. B. Humbert at his
home in this county on the 28th of July
is a peculiarly sad ailliction. He was
just verging to man's estate and in the
midst of his college career, giving tho
highest promise of a bright and useful
manhood. Tho blow is peculiarly bo
vere in that but a short period past
Capt. and Mrs. Humbert lost another
splendid young son. It will be consola
tion to the afilicted parents to know that
they have the deepest sympathy of their*
very many friends.

Cross Hill Notes.
Our community was shocked to learn
that Capt. John J. McGowan had died
at his home on the 31st ultimo of ap
poplexy. Capt. McGowan was a life-long
valuable and public spirited citizen, a de
voted father, (having lost the partner of
his life a few years ago) a kind neigh
bor and highly respected by all who
know him. In early manhood ho served
in a campaign with a Laurons company
against the Seminoles in Florida, and
though advanced in life promptly in '01
was among tho first to offer his services
in defonce of his State and her honor.?

What is meant by free coinage of sil
ver at tho ratio of sixteen to one? The
question has often been asked and an
swered, but there are many who do
not know. "Free coinage" means tho
coinage, by the government, of bullion
into money free of charge. Our na
tion now has freo coinage of gold; and
one may take gold to the mint and
have it coinod into gold dollars, tho
only charge being made for the alloy
(copper) put In the dollar to make It
hard. "The ratio of sixteen to one"
means that there shall bo sixteen
times as much silver In a silver dollar
as there is gold In a gold dollar. The
ratio Is baaed upon the presumption
that gold Is sixteen times more valua
ble than silver; or would be if the na
tion adopted free coinago of silver,
thus giving it an equal chance with
The Biblical Recorder, from which
tho above paragraph is taken, says:
"We have given more thought to
this question in the last three years
than to any other." f f this is so,
our contempory ought to be able to
give a more intelligent account of
free coinage than is contained in
this extract. The editor quoted
confounds free and gratuitous coin
age. "Freo coinage exists where
any owner of bullion has the right
to have it coined on tho same terms
as the government, whether with
or without a seigniorage charge."
Honne there may be free coinage
whore there is a seigniorage, or
charge for coinage. Gratuitous
coinage means that no seigniorage
is charged for tho work of coining,
I. o., the mint value and tho bullion
valuo of the coins are the same.
Hence also there may bo gratuitous
coinago where free coinage does
not exist, that is, only a limited
amount of bullion may bo admitted
to the mint and coined gratuitously.
Free coinage of silver might mean,
therefore, any one of several things,
gratuitous limited coinage, free
and unlimited coinage, or gratuit
ous and unlimited coinage. As a
matter of fact, in present discus
sions on the subject, it signifies the
latter, i.e., there is to be no seignior
age charge and the profits arising
from converting bullion into money
are to belong to tho owner of the bul
lion, and on thoothor hand,'nolimit
is tobe fixed to the amount of bullion
admitted to the mints; tho mint's
mechanical capacity being the only
limit to tho volume oi silver coin.
This is tho doctrino of "free coinago
of silver" as advocated at present
by a great many people.
The other point as to the ratio,
sixteen to one, does not mean that
gold is sixteen times as valuable
as silvqr, or that silver is one-six
teeth as valuable as gold, but that
governmental flat can establish
this ratio of valuo and maintain it.
This is really the gist of the ques
tion in dispute. Thoso who believe
In the omnipotence of government
settle it in one way; those who be
lieve that governments do not
create economic laws, but are rig
idly subject to them, settle it in an
other way. Tho question is before
tho poople of the United States,
and beforo they venturo to cast
their votes they should study the
question. If the voter does not
study tho subject he is not morally
competent to vote. For this is, to
some extent, a moral issue. Let
the poople seek light on this subject
and that not from demagogues,
hut from, those who havo studied
tho subject. Thoro are somo who
havo studied It for more than
"three years."?The Baptist Cou

Yes, "Prophylactic" is a peculiar
word, and hard to remember, but it
is a Splendid Name for a Tooth
brush, because you use a tooth
brush to prevent your teeth from
decaying, and Prophylactic means
a "preventive of disease." With
every brush comes a neat little
hook secured to the brush, and
there is a hole in the end of the
handle which enables you to hang
it up. The head will not touch the
wall. Ask your dentist about the
"Prophylactic Tooth-brush," and
see if he will not recommend it.
