THE RAILROAD ELECTION.
"There is a fear that, on account of
the obscurity of the terms emr--oyed
in the Amendatory Act cl: ring I
the Columbia, Newberry and brens
Railroad, the township subscription
proposed here will not be valid unless
a majority of the qualified voters of
the township shall vote for it-not a
majority of those who vote, but a
majority of all, voting and non-voting.
Therefore, let every man who has in
terest in and hope for Columbia go 1
to the polls next Tuesday and vote
"subscription." No registration will
be required. Every citizen who has
resided in the State and county for
the legal period can vote. There is :
too much apathy and unthinking ]
confidence. Vote !"
The above is taken from the Co
lumbia correspondence of the News ]
and Courier of a recent issue, and
may with equal aptness be applied
to Newberry. The election on this
- subject of subscribing $10,000 from t
this township to this road will be
held to-day, and every one who feels
interested in this road and the town
of Newberry should go the polls and
yote for "subscription" to-day. The
terms of the amended act apply here
as well as in Columbia. It is best to
take no risks. We feel sure that a
_h qualified voter s t
ws or of sub- c i
g the small amount asked in ere
order to secure the road and they 18
should take the trouble to go to the ser
polls and vote for subscription. The Yo
amount asked Of this township is very me
small compound with the benefits to m
be derived from the road coming to
Newberry. We have now the pros- '
pect of becoming a railroad centre, me
and nothing should be left undone Ne
in order to secure this for our town. m
Because the charter provides thatta
this road shall be built by way of Ju
Newberry, does not mean that the na;
road is obliged to come, whether UI
the people of this township give tie
anythig towards bringing it here or arc
not. It is a very easy matter to of
amend the charter. We would be col
acting very much in our own light to ma
stiybyand le hsroad flank orHc
town by a few miles because per- di
chance we refused to vote a subscrip- of'
tion of $10,000 in order to secure it. prc
.....)rtaxes wi'll not be increased more
than one-half of one mill in order to
give the $10,000 and when the road
is built the increased valuation of
property arising from the road and shi
the property of the road itself in this rot
-township will help very materially to Ra
pay this back. rot
*We are induced to say this much, (
not because we think there is any ner
very pronounced opposition, but only isdi
to call the attention of those who are sul1
in favor of the road to the impor- ]
tance of going out and voting in vOt4
order to have a majority of the quali- city
fed voters so that no question should bee
be raised as to the validity of the sub- wa:
scription. Go to the polls and vote WVa
for "subscription." The more rail- Wa
roads we can have coming in here the
better it will be for our town. ItA
will increase our property, give em votE
ployment to more of our people, stre
bring? population to our town. and elec

us in -a thousand ways. to-d
It is the opinion of the attorney vote
of the road, and he is supported in the
this view by eminent counsel in T
different portions of the State, that stati

---qualified voters of the townships.
The words "majority of the qualifiedB
voters" means the majority of the ss
voters who cast a ballot at the elec- lina,

There is no doubt that we often pass
mnanswered questions down the class
0o rapidly. Sometimes we find that a
hild cannot answer very quickly, al
hough he may know the answer very
rell. Haste with such a pupil is often
njurious as it makes him have little con
idence in himself, and soon causes him
,o underrate his own mental capacity.
This is true in' some instances, but
enerally slowness on the part of the
!acher to pass questions is injurious.
Yhv? Because it does not stimulate or
ncourage rapid thought. It is one of
ldren to be quick in their answers, to
them know that promptness is al
ys commended. We do not hesitate
aying that of the two evils, the one
he greater that gives the pupil too

A Bad Nasal Organ.
for over four years I have been a great
ufferer from a terrible form of Nasat
.atarrh. I was greatly. annoyed with a
onstant roaring in my head and my
iearing became very much impaired.
The discharge from my nose w:.s pro
use and very offensive, and my general
ealth impaired. I tried most all promi
ient physicians, but they did not cure
ne, and I used various advertised prep
trations without benefir.
One day I chanced to read a remark
Lble article written by a prominent citi
,en of Athens, Ga., stating that he had
)een permanently cured by the use of
ight bottles of B. B. B.-Botanic Blood
Balm. Being skeptical on the subject,
[ wrote to him on the -,ubject and re
eived a most encouraging answer to the
ffect that he had been cured long
mnough to be thoroughly satisfied that
ao return of the disease would en-in.
I then sent to the drug store of T. E.
smith & Bro., and purchased B. B. B.,
mud to my utter astonishment and satis
Eaction, the use of ten bottles has re
tored my general health, stopped the
roaring sensation, entirely healed and
:nred the nasal catarrh and I am proud
to recommend a blood remedy with such
powerful curative properties.
I shall continue its use a little
longer and feel confident that I will be
entirely cured'of one of the most obsti
nate cases of nasal catarrh in the coun
