DEATHS IN THE SENATE.
Four United States Senators have ]
died during the present session of Con
gress Mnllory of Florida, Latimcr of |
South, Carolina, Proctor ,of Vermont,
and Why to of Maryland.1 The last two |
were aged men. Senator W. J. Bryan,
of. Florida, appointed to succeed Mr.
Mallory, and the youngest of, all. tho
Senators, has been critically ill in
Washington for several Weeks.
v WOULD BE UNWISE TO CHAN0B?
' From time to. tinV^ we hear Of sdfocua.
aion as to who snail be the next Speaker,
of the House of Representatives. We
think Mr. Whaley Should succeed him
self. He has proved an excellent pre
siding officer; and, what is more Import
ant, he has proved that ho is not a par-v
tisan. This was particularly shown by
his committee appointments.
. The Speaker ship is not in the South
Carolina House a partisan office, as it
is in the Lower House of Congress,
We do not Want a *'c*ar" in the House,
after the manner of Speaker Joseph
Gannon. Mr. Whaley has demonstrated
an aptitude for presiding, and he is al
ways fair to all factions. The House
is not likely to have a man who will
give such satisfaction, if a change
should be made?an opinion it. /Hch

FIRST PRINCIPLES OF FARMIN0.
We do not advise anyone to curtail
his acreage in cotton; it would not be
worth while. But we remind farmers
again that the way to make the farm
profitable is to keep busy.
To be a profitable enterprise a steam
laundry must have work to do the year
round. It could not succeed were its.
machinery idle five days in the Week.
When, the plant is idle interest on the
money invested, taxes, insurance and
other expenses go on just the same.
The same is true of a printing office.
Wo can't afford to close this shop in
midsummer, when collections are not
The farmer must keep his plant go
ing all the time.' There must be some
thing for his hired rhen1'and his mules*
and wagons and plows and harrows to
do from January until 'January comes
again. This tan only be arranged' by
'diversifying crops. Some' days' and
some weeks, we -suppose, the idleness
on the farm'cannot be avoided, but tho
farmer who most nearly approaches to
keeping everything busy every working
day in the week will get out 'the big
gest production; and making money
consists of 'just twb'operationS?product
ing and selling. The first, and most
important, is production. Now it fol
lows from this that the man who plants
too much cotton Will have all his labor
and stock 'overwhelmed with work at
one season, to the neglect , of other
crops, and he will have no time to plant
and cultivate1'these other crops, The
cultivation of cotton alone cannot pos
sibly take up more than, a part of the'
At this season, when 'the crops are
about to be pitched, it is wise to recog
nize the economic fact that is at the
basis of all industry, thai the greatest
success comes from the greatest produc
tion, and the greatest producing farm
cannot be a farin that produces cotton
to the exclusion of other crops.
The Supreme court of the State has
united in a decision that the State', and
not the Federal court, has jurisdiction*
over the funds of the late State dispen
aary. This', of' course, does' not settle
the contest. It will' go to the United
States'supreme court; but eVery good
South Carolinian will hope, that the
State's contention will be sustained.
The Chances are that it will be. Tho
best lawyers that we have heard quoted
think that ? J?dge Pritehard has little
ground to stand on.
At least one member of the House
from Laurens will not be a candidate
for re^!ectIon-7fMr; Carihori. Mr. Clar
ence Cunningham, or Waterloo, would
be an excellent man to succeed hinv
He would do the county great credit.

a very sever* cola? the next day was
worse and the following night his con

down and it was necessary to have him
in the arms every moment. Ehren then
his breathing was difficult. I did not
think he would live until morning. At
last I. thought of- my mother's remedy,
ChamhertalnV Cough Remedy, which
we gave, and .it afforded prompt relief,
and how, puree days later, he has fully
recovered. Under the circumstances I.
