Everybody should know bow n cur
tain gontloman inhabiting certain re
gions bud his feet divided. Corborus
guardod his dismal abode. Tlllman
and MoLaurln voted with Hoar and
Allison and the leaders of tho Repub
licans on the raw cotton question. Pour
other sooalled Democrats wore found
voting with the Republicans, and two
wero Coorgia Bonators, and theso will
no doubt bo able to persuade their con
stituents that thoy aro Democrats.?
Certainly, there are mon right hero
amongst us that they can satisfy that
Calhoun, McDuflle and Iluyne wore
fools. Rut, surely all tho peoplo aro
not fools, anil wo arc not going to bo
fooled all the time. We havo cor
talnly until January to cotno to our
sonsos. Tho veto In question was to
impose a twenty per cont ad Valoron
tax on raw cotton imported Into those
States. Tho bulk of the Democratic
party with Vest loading stood llko a
stonewall In tho broach whiloour Sena
tors dosortcd, joined the onomy, and
firod upon thtdr friends. They had
tho applauso of tho Northern Sena
tors, and will get their reward a thou
sand fold. The prlnciplo for which
tho ffouth has contended for a hundred
years has boon sold bodily out. Wo of
the South have to find a foreign mar
ket for olght millions bales of cotton,
whilst only about one hundred thou
sand balos long cotton Is raised in all
this country. We buy untold millions
of sugar; in a district as wide as Lau
rons county sugar is cultivated in
Louisiana and for tho60 miserable in
terests the Democratic party and tho
South Is bodilv sold and sacrllied. We
had hotter buy at a double price thooo
miserable long cottou Islands and the
sugar farms in Louisiana. That
Northern Republicans aro hugging
thorn to their bosoms is not to bo won
dered at?join your Senators and you
havo your loving arms enfolding the
nock<* of tho Northern brethren who
onslavo you. What fun to soo Laurens
Democrats and Maine Republicans
drink from the loving cup and shout
ing hosanahs to protection. Rut, wo
aro saying it, as perhaps, ought not to
say It. Let theso Senators of ours
satisfy their intelligent constituency
that thoy woro right in joining the
Republicans who woro voting a high
protective tariff on a schedulo of throe
thousand articles of which the South
are consumers for the sake of a fow
miserable bule? of long cotton raised
on Islands that a coon can cross in
three jumps. Rut wc fear that they
may succeed. In the meanwhile we
will ransack Kuropo, Asia and Africa
and the islands of tho seas, for people
to take our raw cotton and cotton
Senators Tlllman and MoLaurln,
with Congressmen stokes and Latl
mcr called on Prosident McKinley and
asked that Gen . Hampton bo retained
n tho otllco of United States Rail
Road Commissioner. This will bo bad
news to those who yollod six years Rio
over the discomfiture of this great
clli/on. The President assured tho
gentlemen who went without solicita
tion, that (ion. Hampton would not bo
romoved ponding his feoblo health. It
was a graceful act on tho part of Tlll
man and tho other gontlemon.
For 9lx years wo havo endeavored to

make demand on Governor Ellorbe to

that corlaln nowspapors have accused
him of crookedness but they do n< ,

Gov. Ellerbe might appoint ns an in

committee a white-washing might
throw grave suspicion on the dis

friends fail to suggest any practical
plan of investigation to Governor El?

accusers, and the Governor If he be

in tho Columbia State of tho 10th in

To His Excellency Gov. W. II. Ellorbe.
Many of tho nowspapors throughout
the Stato aro charging Senator Till
man with receiving disponsary rebates
and Senator Tillman having in his re
cent lotlor made a formal demand up
on your excellency for an immediate
investigation. Now we as Reformers,
oall upon you to order an immediate
investigation. If, after a fair and im
partial trial, Mr. Tillman is found
guilty let him bear tho odium and
shame that will necessarily follow. If
on tho other hand be is ad judged inno
cent let the same newspapers who have
made tho chargos do Senator Tillman
justice by correcting their chargos
and proclaiming him an innocent man

on Sunday, MayJJOth by Rev. Mr.
Pnrrott, of Clinton, H, O., who de
livered a very forcible discourse to
a large and appreciative audience.
Tho school exhibillotl embraced
two evenings. iVlay 81st and June
We shall not attempt to give
hero the elaborate and well ar
ranged programme. Sulllco it to
say, that with such a diversity of
attractions as w< re offered in (he
way of pretty recitations, plays
and dialogues dispersed with wit,
humor and pathns; with now and
(Io n a laughable farce, to say noth
ing of the beautiful drills, the large
audience scorned Interested to (he
last and frequently gave expres
sion to their enthusiasm in loud
bursts of applause. The pupils ex
hibited careful training and did
credit to themselves and teachers.
Throughout, both evenings splen
did music was dispensed by the
Princeton Orchestra, led by that
accomplished musician, Miss Car

Tho annual school picnic took
place on Wednesday on'the school
grounds and was a most enjoyable
affair. Some most excellent ad

A. II. Dean, of Oreenville, Rev.
W. IS. Wharton, of Honoa Path
and Rev. S. I). Vuughun, Prince

It is unnossury (o speak of (ho
bountiful dinner, but twice the
number could have been fed.
As a finale, the young people
had arranged a lawn party for
Wednesday evening but this wild
unfortunately broken up by fain.
Not to be outdone oven by tho
fates, the boys determined to try
the inconstant Goddess tho second
time, so another parly was ap
pointed for Friday and proved It)
be one of tho most pleasant fea
tures of the Commencement.
We have in our midst several of
the fair sex. Among whom arc?
Mrs. T. R, Kiigorc, of Oreenville,
accom ponied by her charming
daughter, Miss Fannie. Also, Miss
Julia and Alico Williams, Wil

"I have known two solf called sports
men to leave Spokane for two days, and
on returning tell of having killed Oa

home they put up corroborated. That
was yoars ago. If would take a long
hunt there now to kill (ill deer. I once
knew a man to go and make a winter
camp and kill over 100 deer, which lie
hung up. lie tried to sell them whero
they hung, hut failed. He went east
somewhere, whoro ho lived, and I've
never heard of him since. He claimed
to have killed 100, hut I counted lfi0

was camped a party of hunters. It
would have been easy to load a four
horse wagon with the heads of deer

There were deer carcasses all about the

hunters who havo killed thousands of
deer and left theni where they fell. On

"1 have seen many Indian hunts, one
of which resulted in tbo death of over

That beautiful dedication beginning,
"Dear, near and true," is that bit of
his writing which will bo most oftou

shrewd critic of her husband's work,
Tennyson has been accused of inability
to fuse the difleront portions of a long
poem, and the difTeronoo in stylo bo
tween "Tho Coining of Arthur" and
"The Passing of Arthur" and tho other
"Idylls of tho King" has been cited in
illustration. Concerning this dilTeronoo
Lady Tennyson said to her son only
two days before her death, "He said
'The Coming of Arthur' and 'The Puss

style than tho other idylls as dealing
with thoawfulness of birth and death,"
