thinks that while men in a civilized
state do not indulge in a free fight
wherever they meet. they do the same

strife, business rivalry and the inor
dinate desire of everybody to mind
7 his neighbor's business instead o1
his own. Business rivalry and po.
litical strife are all very well and
proper, but there can be little doubt
that there are many so called moral
reformers, who, in the name of reli
* gion, are constantly looking after
their neighbor and criticising his
habits and customs, trying to take
the mote out of his eye, while the
beam remains in their own. And
besides these moral reformers, there
-- are men in every-day life who are
constantly minding everybody's bu
siness but their own. Men and wo
men who by their insidious questions
and insinuations are creating strifes
and unpleasant feelings instead of
minding their own business. What
we most need in this day as in every
other, is men and women to mind
their own business and leave other
people to do the same. Every man,
when he arrive at the age of discre

his own acts, and so long as he minds
his own business without infringing

THE OLD CONFEDERATE FLAGS.
* In the cellar and attics of the war
department at Washington are a
number of old Confederate battle
flags. which were captured during the
late war. The proposition to return
these to the various States in which
the companies to which they belong
were from, has been made, and was
about to be acted upon. In another
column of this paper we publish the
cespoannnrcne in reg-ard to the mat
ter. President Cleveland has reached
the conclusion that no power other
than Congress has the right to order
the removal of these flags. He has
reached that conclusion, no doubt, t
from a careful examination of the t
law, and for the present at least, the S
old flags will remain where they are. 2
A great cry comes up from certain
Northern quarters, though, of "rebel
lion," "treason," and great protest is y
made against returning these flags. e
Surely the war is over, and the re
turn of these old flags could do no
possible harm. They belong to the
victors, however, and they have a
right to them. In speaking of the y
order to return these flags Gen. Fair
child, of the G. A. R., says: c
"May God palsy the hand that
wrote the order, and may God palsy
the brain that conceived it, and
may God palsy the tongue that dic
tated it." . t
This is indeed strong language. t
He'further says no loyal Governor f
of any State in this Union would re
ceive them, and speaks of them as
emblems of treason.
We think no loyal Governor of
any State in this Union whose sons
once bore these old flags aloft in the
heat of battle, and whose blood was
shed for principles they conceived to
be right, would refuse to receive them.
Yes, and place them in safe keeping
and cherish the memory of the noble
sons of the South who fought in this
strife. Preserve these flags and the
history connected with them; but not
to stir anew a desire for war or dis
union. The questions for which the
South fought have been decided on
the field of carnage, and we are back
in the Union, and we are there to
stay. But we can never be made be.
lieve that those brave men who
fought on the Southern' side in the
late civil strife were traitors, and
that their memories are unworthy to
be cherished and revered.
If that is what the New South
idea means, then away with any such
We are now at peace and we want
to remain so. The Union is no longer
divided and we hope never again to
to see a division nor a civil war.
But we hope to see the rising gene
ration of this beautiful South-land
cherish in proper remembrance the
'memory of those who gave up their
lives on the field of battle in a cause
which they conceived to be just.
They were overpowered by the force
of arms and submitted graceitilly,

they are. The South is a part of|

PLEASANT VISIT TO CLINTON
BY THE EDITOR.
CLINTON, June 21.
Dear Herald and Yews:-As I sit here
>-night and attempt to write of Clin
:n, her schools, colleges, charitable in
titutions and the hospitality of her citi
ens, I am puzzled to'know how to con
ense what I want to say in the space in
rhich you will allot me for this talk.
This afternoon we left Newberry (and
then I. say we I mean more than the
ditorial we, for our party consisted of
V. H. Wallace, Esq., of the Obserrer,
Kiss Lizzie Ruff, Prof. T. II. DrehCr,
Er. M. J. Scott and your scribe), and
he old Laurens brought us along slowly
ut surely and landed us in Clinton on
I might say that the main object of
ur visit was to attend the closing exer- 1
ises of the Clinton Aeademy, taught by
'rof J. B. Parrott. We were met at the
lepot by Prof. Parrott. Through the
:indness of Prof. Parrott and Mr. Lee
'erguson, I had the pleasure of a drive
hrough the principal part of this bean
iful little village. It was also the good
ortune of your scribe, Miss Ruti and
'rof. Dreher to stop at that excellent
otel, the Irby House, kept by that es
mwable gentleman, Dr. W. C. Irby, and
is good wife. We are certainly in good
iands and well cared for. MIr. Wallace
s the guest of Prof. Parrott and Mr.
cott is with relatives.
Clinton is a pretty little town and
ieems to be improving. Many new and
)eautiful residences are in course of con
truction. It now has a population of
bout 800, and has the prospect of an
>ther railroad. The ambition of her
eople, I understand, is, not only to be
ome a commercial centre, but more
articularly to become a town of :chools
One has to come here and see for him
elf, by going through the various build
ngs, to fully appreciate the good that is
being done by the Thornwell Orphan
ge under the management of that
Christian gentleman, Dr. Wm. P. Ja
robs. I had the pleasure this afternoon
af going through the buildings and
,rounds, and when I got through I was
glad that I came to Clinton. Every
thing has the most neat and cozy ap
pearance, and the sixty-five orphans
here all look happy and contented. The
practical part of the education is carried
along with the theoretical. The young
ladies are their own cooks and servants
by turns, and they do their own laun
drying and house cleaning and sewing,
and learn everything essential to good
housekeeping. There is also a farm in
onnection with this institution, upon
which the boys learn the practical also.
And in addition to this there is a good
school in connection with the orphan
age, in which all receive a good educa
tion. The first building we went through
was the printing office, ini which is
printed Our Monthly. This is a neat
concrete building with 'three times as
much room inside as the outward ap
pearance would indicate. And the same
may be said of all the buildings. Every
particle of avaIlable space is utilized.
Then we were shown through the din
ing room, kitchen and laundry. Every
thing is the picture of neatness. This
building is also used as the residence of
the larger girls. There are two other
elegant buildings-the seminary build
ing, in which are held the exercises of
commencement, etc., and the McCor
mick building, used as the sleeping
apartments for the boys. This is an ex
cellent building-built of flint rock and
ement, with the rock in their rough
state. The building has eighteen rooms.
rhen the building in which live the lit
tIe-children who jare too small to be use
ul. All the buildings are located in a
beautiful grove, which is use~d as a play
ground. Any orphan child is fortunate
to be put in charge of this institution.

ing a good work, and I believe the R1ev.

LAURENS, June 20.-Col. J. H.
Traynham, of the Governor's staff,

Guards, have returned from Cedar
Grove, Young's township. Col.
Traynham refuses to bo interviewed,
but he will proceed to Columbia and
report directly to Gover.or Richard

is under no obligation to report o i

There is no doubt that some of the
negroes are organized, and that they
often hold meetings between mid.
night and daylight with the greatest
precautions at secrecy, sentinels
being stationed at convenient dis
tances from the rendezvous. The
various dire threats that have been so
widely circulated cannot be traced
authoritively to the organization.
There will be no outbreak unless the
negro leaders shall act rashly, as the
whites preserve great caution. I neg

burg correspondent of the Times
learns that a large tract of country
near Merv, in Turkestan, has been
purchased by a Russian company for
a cotton plantation, and the invest

Raising Funds to Fight Prohibition
in Texas and Elsewhere. f
CHICAGO, June 17.-The National
association of wholesale liquor dealers
held an important meeting last night. ol
J. M. Atherton, of Louisville, Ky., pre- T
sided. In addition to local members tli
present, a Texas delegation was in at- n
tendafice. Whether they discussed the A
local fight in Chicago is not known.
Gentlemen say they did not. They say
they had enough to do in preparing for
the prohibition fight in Texas. The pro
hibition amendment there will be voted
upon August 4th and the fight is red hot..
One of the wholesale men says that the
$100 assessments in Chicago is to fight
prohiibition in Texas. Mr. A4therton, the
president, admits that it is a hard battle,
but thinks the liquor men will win, Then ol
prohibition in Tennessee comes to a vote
September 9, and it must be met. That IV
is not all. WVest Virginia, Oregon, Da
kota, Wyoming Territory, to say nothing
of Michigan and Missouri, are causing
the liquor men much trouble, so the nia
tional association did not come here to
help Cbicago dealers, but rather to be a1
helped. An assessment of ten cents per ti
barrel was made on old rye and bourbon, et
and requests for funds made to whole- t<
salers. Each distiller, he said, does his
level best, one in Cincinnati giving
