LAURENS, 8. C, Sept. 20, 1806.
What Does it all Mean.
W Tbo overwhelming ovations pouring
,T Out over Bryan in Pennsylvania, New
1 Jersey, Maryland, and the East, must
moan something. The Heathen,
Horace, eighteen and a half centuries
\ ago expressed in classic phrase, but
I f reoly translated?I hate that low vice,
' curiosity. Lord Byron, a democrat of
democrats, a despiser of the aristo
cracy, and the best hater of the cen
. tury endorsed the sentlmopt to its
fullest extent. Now when Bryan struck
Philadelphia a wook ago, a olty com
posed to a man and a woman of dyed
in tho-wool republicans, not so cultured
as Boston further East, but a city
whoro overy man, woman and child
speakes Latin and is flippant in a half
-.dozen tongues, the rush, the crush, the
avalanche, the swell, the tidal wavo to
hear and see Bryan has not been ex
ampled In ancient or modern times.?
Of course, therefore, it muat bo con
cluded, that these culturod people,
strong In all that makes mon and wo
men feel their oonsequonce, cultured,
happy, rich, would not be moved by
such a low vice, and miserable mo
tive as vulgar ohrloslty. It becomes
ua, therefore, as Intelligent creatures
interested in the passing events, in
wh it is going on around us, to divine
in time, what Is the meaning and
significance of tho grand outpouring of
the great populations of tho great
cities to see and hear tho phenomiual
"Boy Orator." We've been philosophis
ing upon it, turning It over and over,
and have arrived at tho aage conclu
sion that it must mean-some
thing. It is a pity to havo to wait to
see But a thousand or more years
ago some wise men?or otherwise
suggested as tending largely to the
happiness of humble mortftbj w^^^p-tl

Unquestionably there has been nothing
comparable to the popular reception
accorded this young Nebraska hooslor,

be seen, and still wo ad vi so patienco,
and a temperature of about 10 below
zero with our readers, while Hanna
and Jonea are employed in manipulat
ing the cards. Wo muat perforce wait
until the November ides to see whleh
way tho elastic and uncertain cat may
jump. But beware of great expecta
tions from the Government. It bo
hooves every man to sot his own house
in ordor, to keep note of the laws of
success and prosperity, remembering
that economy and industry alone will
pull ua through happily. Remember
ing those simple principles, you can
klok tho government, defy fate and
fortune and laugh at what they call
hard times. You can kick any mllllon
aro, plutuorat, bond clipper or railroad
wrecker into the next township, if
you uave your own turnips, potatoes,
corn, butter, sweet milk, crisp bacon,
ohicken and hominy, and to use tho
lingo of the day, by "Jingo" wo will do

There is considerable talk about the
Legislature when it meets in January
investigation of tho Dls
larltlos in Columbia,
to the institution
sashed with a
Oca. Vfude Hampton.
A correspondent of the Charleston
Nows and Courier tells of having met
Gen. Wado Hampton at Spartanburg
last week and report him looking
younger and better than he did a year*
or two ago. Tho correspondent con
tinues: ''Curiously, no one at the de
pot knew who be was, but there were
few who did not turn to look at him
and the porters and small boys, and
old ones, too, instinctively t?uohed
their hats." Manifestly South Caro
linians are not a people who bow to
one whoso race is run. They have
forgotten Hampton pretty quickly. A
North Carolinian tells tho Observer of
having seen him on a train at Laurens
last week, and, though ho sat at the
car window, In full view of every pass
er by while the train stopped, nobody
fiald the slightest attention to him,
bough it was ascertained by inquiry
afterward that a number of those who
saw him knew who ho was. The North
Carolinian raised his bat, and this was
the only recognition the ex-General,
ex-Governor and ex-Sonator received
at Laurens.?Charlotte Observer.
The Tar-hoelcr is mistaken in the
town?it must have been in Aiken. No
Laurens man has forgotten to yell for
Hampton. If the town is rightly
located it was a gang of bastard for
eigners in ohargo of tho dopot that day.
No Laurens man forgot9 a true hero?

Tho Stato Dispensary authorities

It was the droam of at least some, of
the founders of this republic that the
civilization hero begun should stand as
tho flowering of tho ages gone before,
Thero should bo no military despotism,
no hereditary nobility, no tyranny of
priesthood or ohnrch. All men should
have equality of opporluuity, and then,
as water finds its level, sooiety would
Instead of this wo seem .thus far
merely to havo repeated tho social dis
tinctions of the old world. A more odi
ous caste system than even that of a
titled and hereditary nobility Is upon
our necks. It is the vnlgar and prepos
terous ariBtooraoy of wealth. An in
finitesimal fraction of tho inhabitants
of ono oity, New York, calls itself the
"society" of this country. Thero are a
million people in tbo country woro re
flued, moro intellectual, moro brilliant
iu all sooial gifts than any of tho men
and women who pose beforo tho public
at Nowport as tfib "sooioty" of tho
United States. These persons with real
sooial gifts may or may not bo rich.
That is -fust us it happens. But it is
timo for us to begin to know that a roal
society has nothing ut all to do with
wealth boyoud a certain nmouut uccofl
sory to provide tho comforts uud rofluo
incuts of lifo. Wheu wo ull understand
that, thou, and not till then, shall wo
begin to have something worthy tho
inline of society iu this country.
In tho real senso tho little gilded
clique which poseH at Nowport iu tho
summer is not sooioty nt all. It has no
right to tho title, because its titlo is
founded upon moro dollars. Evory in
telligent neighborhood in Amorica bus
the makings of a real sooioty surpass
ing in brilllauoy tho preseut Newport
Tocotitiidor tho requisites of agouuino
Booioty: First, thero is the social in
stinct, which man shares in eommou
with brutes. Thou there is tho iu
stinct of kindliness and courtesy, which
(list Ingulshcu the gentleman from the
boor. Next thero must bo moral and so
cial purity. A society without these
would bo llko the region of lost souls.
It would contain tho elements of its
own destruction. In ancient Home, ill
France, in England beforo Cromwell's
revolution, this was the enso.
Next? Well, wo shonld ueed that
msthctio instinct which leads mankind
to refine itself and its language and
manners, to cultivate grace and beauty
of person, which begin with perfect per
sonal cleanliness, Tho aesthetic instinct
will further load us to surround our
-Jsslyes with what is dainty and pleasing
to the ~cyey iliSido our homes and out
side. This does not inea.i necessarily
cost I iuess. A house of four rooms may bo
as pleasiug to tho tssthetio senso as ono
Finally, to tho building of the perfect
society thero must be added all tho iu
, telleotual gifts and semi-iutollectual
gifts mankind possesses. Tho cultiva
tion of music, of artistic, dramatio aud
conversational talent, of social games
aud amusements indoors and out, all
these go to tho making of best society.
Why do we uot begin to build it iu ev
ery town in this republic?
American pooplo will not bo proud of
tho fact that tho owner of Sunuyside,
Washington Irving's home on the Hud
son at Tarry town, bus at last felt obliged
to closo its gates against the public. For
many a yenr tho hospitable proprietor
has let them stand wido open thai every
tourist and stranger, in affect ionato ro
m' lubrauco of tho great American au
thor, might walk or drive in uud seo
tho home which ho lovod so well. Bnt
bioyclists turuod tho beautiful walks
nud lawn into a rendezvous for a mob.
They luuohod under tho trees; they
trampled ou tho grass; thoy throw bones,
papers, boxes, grease and scraps of food
about tho beautil'ul lawn. And now the
owner, a grandnephew of Irviug, re
gretfully anuouuoes that tho bums havo
fairly driven him out of houso and homo
and he can endure it no longer. Tho
gatos of Suuuyside uro closed hencoforth.

Bullotiu No. 11 of tho misoellaucons
sorios of tho United States dopnrtmeut
of agrioultnro presents in tabulated
form the condition of tho Americau livo
stock industry from 1880 to 1890.
All tho livo stock in tho country iu
1896 is vulucd at $1,727,020,084. This
is only $161,008,688 more than the
valuo iu 1880. Jtfothiug illustrates tho
present condition of tho livo stock in
dustry moro forcefully if at tho same
time wo romomber that tho populatiou
of the Union hus iucronscd from 50,
000,000 in 1880 to 70,000,000 in 1890.
For uino yonrs following 1880 both
numbers and values of farm animals
inorensed steadily and rapidly. In 1880
tho valuo wns $3,507,050.58. Iu 1890
tho first symptoms of dccliuo begau, tho
yoorof the Daring failure, though what
con in et ion that ovont could havo with
live stock in the United States is not
clear. Tho valuo has bcou going down
irregularly over siuco. During 1892 and
1898 i.t roso feobjy, only to drop more
rapidly )thon before In 1894 it fell
more than $100,000,000; in 1895 over
$815,000,000. For i890 tho vnluo is tho
smallest iu 10 years. The principal
losses have fallen on horses, mules and
sheep. Horses alono havo fallen off
$118,150,225 Binoo 1880. Thoir number
is, however* greater than it was thou,
although that has declined heavily sinco
1803. Tim same is true of mules. Of all
animal!. cattle?milk cows and beoves
?are the only ones that show a good
advanoo iu vnluo Binoo 1880, although
those, too, havo f?llen off greatly iu
tho past two years. On tho whole, 1895
and 1&'.>6 soom to bo tho most disastrous

Lack of Schoolhouso Itoom.
At tho opening of tho public school
year iu New York city it was fouud
that thero wcro 80,000 children apply
ing for entrance who could uot get iu.
Thero was not Schoolhouse room for
them. They aro thus left to roam tho
streets nnd bocomo vagabonds and crim
inals when they and their parents really
desiro that they should bocomo intelli
gent citizens. If there in ono right a
child has, it is to Boouro a good common
school education. It is ivb much a hu
man being's right as light and air and
water aro his right. When a child is
turned away from school because thero
is not desk room for it, it is - gu there
is something atrociously wrong.
Now York city is by no means aloue
fci this criminal laok of fiChoolllOUSO
room. Tho liko condition oxist? to n
greater or less dogrco in many of tho
larger citios. It is not tho fault of tho
school authorities. They have used all'
the money they had to build houses as
rapidly as thoy could. Wo havo men

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
