FARMERS FINANCING MILLS.
The News and Courier calls attention
to the helpfulness of the Southern cot
ton grower to the Southern cotton mills.
The European or New England manu
facturer must buy his supply of cotton
months ahead. He cannot afford to al
low his supply to run down to a matter
of two weeks' consumption. There
fore he must lose interest on a large
?tof money, which he pays for cot

[the necessity of borrow

^twelve monthV ahead. In other words,
Ihe growers who hold cotton actually
)nance in large measure the Southern
lanufacturers when they buy cotton as
jey need it for spinning,
the value of the holding movement
the Southern manufacturers is ob
and it ought to convince the
mfacturers of the wisdom of treat
the local growers with liberality.
Southern manufacturer who has
business sense is the best friend
e Southern cotton farmer. Their
lests lie mighty close together.
[hough cut down almost upon the
\old of his young manhood, Pierce
was spared long enough to
success in life. As a lad and
ing man he went about his busi
a inanly way. He attended to

tbe confidence of business men
ins. He was well brought up.
(er, who passed away in the
rer of manhood, lived long enough
listill into the son the value of cor
business habits, and the son lived

of the kind of home and family
makes this American country of
powerful and respected, and a
!.ble member and supporter of his
th and of society. The promise

dily grow, and that by the time
i'le life was reached he would be

is, therefore, an example carrying
lesson that the servant to whom
been given a talent cannot be ex
|sed if he hide it away, even for a
gason, postponing the day for taking
nit and multiplying it for the Mas
's sake. This young man was only
rso young that some of us who do

THE TORRENS SYSTEM.
A writer in the News and Courier
proposes that the Torrens system of
land tenures be adopted by the Legisla
ture for South Carolina, and the Sum
Item hdartily endorses the proposi
|This is the first time, we believe,
e enactment of the Torrens gys
has been seriously suggested in
s State in twelve or fifteen years,
Advrtisk.k having advocated it
early in the nineties.
The Torrens or Australian system
abolishes distinctions between real and
personal property. Instead of holding
ssession of land by a deed, the owner
7??8 a certificate which is transferable
by endorsement in the same way that
a bank or cotton mill certificate of stock
s transferable. The State guarantees
he certificate as a good title, a small
tax being paid when the land owner
exchanges his deed for a certificate,
and at each subsequent transfer. The
proceeds of this tax create an insur
ance fund which protects the State |
against loss when a title that it guaran
tees is attacked. In time the necessity!
for this insurance fund disappears and
the tax is not levied.
The argument in favor of the plan is
that it would make land a ready basis
of credit, just as stock in corporations
is now a more acceptable collateral
"tfiafi land. The borrower on land must
pay heavily for examination of title and
record fees. The moneylender requires1
a high rate of interest on loans secured
by land mortgages, because foreclos
ure is a tardy and expensive process.
The News and Courier points out
that, while the system is a great im
provement on the present system, so
far as intelligent and frugal people are
concerned, tho cumbersome land ten
ures prevent the prodigal and unthrifty
classes from disposing of their lands,
and prevents corporations and wealthy
men from buying lands in great acre
We think that the Torrens system
would enhance the general wealth and
prosperity of tho State aa a whole, but
Jt is not ui likely that the number of in
dividual landowners would for a time
decrease. The only argument against
the adoption of the system is that not
all of the people are sufficiently enlight
ened and educated for it?in other
words, that an awkward and out-of
date system of land tenures affords
some protection to the ignorant, al
though it is burdensome to the thrifty
people who know how to take care of
Gen. C. I. Walker, commandorof the
Department of the Army of Northern
Virginia, U. C. V., has lately returned
from a visit to the Vicksburg ground
which Congress has made a national
park, and writes interestingly of the
monumonts erected on the ground,
showing the positions of troops of var
ious States in the battle. Some of the
wealthy Yankee States have built
monuments which cost $100,000, and^
even $200,000. Gen. Walker sa^s that,
while South Carolina cannot hope to
spend any great sum of money, the
State should erect a monument to mark
tne participation of South Carolina
regiments in the struggle. An excel
lent site, he says, has been reserved
for a South Carolina monument.
That truth is stranger than fiction,
has onco more been demonstrated in the
little town of Fedora, Tenn., the resi
dence of C. V. Pepper. He writes: "I
was in bed, entirely disabled with hem
orrhages of the lungs and throat. Doc
tors failed to help me, and all hope had
fled when I began taking Dr. King's
New Discovery. Then instant relief
came. The coughing soon ceased: the
bleeding diminished rapidly, and in
three weeks I was able to go to work."

HE KICKS ON THE "CASSEROLE."
Rural Editor Tells Why His Meal on the
Diner Proved Unsatisfactory.
It was the pleasure of the editor in
company with a leading citizen of
Downs, last week to visit Kansas City.
It was the first time we had ever had
the pleasure of traveling with a gentle
man of his prominence in the financial
and social world, and we enjoyed the
experience. He didn't know it, (or if
he did he was too considerate to "let
on"), but the fact is we watched him
carefully, and tried hard to follow his
lead on matters of etiquette, and we
hope we didn't disgrace him.
The greatest difficulty we experi
enced was on the dining car from Kan
sas City to Chicago. We've often won
dered why waiters stand so close to the
chairs of guests where they serve meals
"a la carte," and we think we have at
last solved the riddle. It is to keep the
guests from falling off their chairs
when they read the prices opposite the
various articles of food. Well, we man
aged to call up a sickly grin and politely
requested the shade of our funny bone
to bring us a "squab en casserole."
We'd heard about squab, so concluded
that six bits was none too much for the
experience we'd get in eating one. The
squab was about the size of our baby's
two fists, and came on the table swim
ming in a lot of sour soup, which we
suppose was the "casserole," though
we didn't ask. The squab made about
three mouthfuls, and then we were up
against it. We didn't know whether
the "casserole" was to eat, drink or
sop bread in; but, being hungry, we
used it like vegetable soup, and tried
to get our money's worth. We had a
pot of hot coffee and some other things,
but tho squab is the thing we thought
most about. By the time the bill was
presented we had steeled ourselves to
look brave when the highwayman who
had charge of affairs presented it. It
doesn't matter how much the dinner
cost, but we want to say right now
that if the little Optimists are to have
enough potatoes and gravy to eat this
winter some of our delinquent subscrib
ers had better dig up pretty quick.

Beware of Frequent Colds.
A succession of colds, or a protracted
cold, is almost certain to end in chronic
catarrh, from which few persons ever
wholly recover. Give every cold the
attention it deserves, and you may
avoid this disagreeable disease. How
can you cure a cold? Why not try
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy? It is
highly recommended. Mrs. M. White,
of Butler, Tenn., says: "Several years
ago I was bothered with my throat and
lungs. Someone told me of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. I began using
it, and it relieved me at once. Now
my throat and lungs are sound and

This Littlo Gem of Fiction Comas to

A French soldier who had been away
from home for several years returned
unexpectedly to his native town. The
day of his arrival bel?g Sunday, ho
went to the village church, believing
his wife would be there, aud ho thus
COUld see her the sooner. Taking a!
seat near tho door, he waited until the
eervico was over.
While walling, being very much fa
tigued after a long journey, he fell
asleep, his head resting on tho back of
the pew. Whllo sleeping he dreamed
of being Bebsed as a spy and after a
short trial was condemned and led out
for execution. The guillotine had been
erected, the army stood ranged about,
and all tho preparations were made as
Impressively as possible. The con
demned man was placed in position,
and tho lost act in the drama was at
Just at that moment his wife was
passing down the aisle of the church
on her way out. She recognized her
husband and Iu order to awaken him
tapped his neck playfully with her fan
as his head was thrown back on tho

dream supposed to be the knife of the
guillotine. The shock was so great it

Mow the Aro Light la Produced Be
tween the Electrodes.
Everybody knows that an arc light
Is formed by causing an electric cur
rent to p;> ss between the points of two
carbon rod*- One of these is called
the posillvo and the other the nega
tive electrode, and tho current passes
from the former to the lattor. Parti
cles of carbon are carried on from the
positive electrode until Its end be
comes cup shaped.
To the littlo cup thus formed the
name of crater is applied, and from
this crater four-fifths of tho light Is
emitted. The negative electrode does
not become so hot as the other. Be
tweeu the two a little cloud of vapor
ized carbon is formed, rising from the
crater, and this vapor gives forth a
golden yellow light. But It is over
powered by the light of tho crater it
self, which has a violet tinge due to the
Incandescence of solid particles of car
bon. The arc of light extended from
one electrode to the other also hag an
axis of violet color which is its most
brilliant part. The fact that most of
the luminosity conies from tho crater

not appear equal in all directions. It

80 They Took the Woman From Her
Wnehtub to the Gallowa.
The hanging of a woman, which in
these dnya calls forth public protests,
was apparently a matter of Indiffer
ence to our grandfathers and grand
mothers. It was In the nineteenth
century that a woman found guilty of
BOUie trifling offense was sentenced to I
death. By chance the warrant for her
execution was not sent to tho high
shorllY, nnd she remained In prison
for nliout three years, noting as a Jail
washerwoman nnd occasionally, as a
favor In acknowledgment of her good
behavior, going out, ns M'ns then the
custom, ns washerwoman to private
houses. But a clerk looking through
the homo office records found the war
rant that had never been dispatched,
and it was thereupon promptly for
warded to the sheriff for due process.
Tho woman was found by the turn
key nt the wnshtub In a house in the
town ? Aylosbury. "Well, missus,"
said he, "yon are to bo hanged. The
warrant lias come at last, nnd we must
carry the sentence out tomorrow morn
ing nt tho latest." "Worry well, then,"
the wretched woman submissively re
plied, "I suppose I must go," and, hav
ing washed the soapsuds off her nrnis,
departed with the ofllclal. She was
duly hanged the next morning, from
all which it would seem that barely a
century separates us from a condi

that when it wns first mentioned to
him he was reminded of a farmer in
Illinois who determined to try his own
hand at blasting. After successfully
boring nnd filling in with powder he
failed in his effort to make the powder
go off, and after discussing the cause
with a looker on and failing to detect
anything wrong iu tho powder tho
farmer suddenly came to the conclu
