A COTTON FARMER.
In conversation with one of our bes1
farmers a few days ago he remarkec
that he was feeding corn that only cosl
him ten cents a bushel, and the trans
action by which he obtaiped the corr
was a legitimate one too. He does no1
believe in raising corn, but raises in
stead oats for his horse feed, and th(
oats which he traded for the little cor
that he wanted bushel for bushel hac
only cost him ten cents a bushel t<
The gentleman to whom we refer is f
small farmerr but one of the best in th<
county. He always makes good crop
but he says he does not believe it pays
to raise corn. The food crop for the
farmers of this section of country is the
oat crop. It cost. less and is better fooc

We were surprised to hear this far
mier of whom we speak say that he wa:
a cotton man. We have known him:
long time and he always has plenty o
food and fine stock and we were unde:
the impression ihe was a believer it

average a bale of cotton fromt everr
acre he plants, and lie says it pay

Our observation has been that as t

Talking about public schools, wi
were told by a teacher in the lower see
tion of this county a few days ago tha
nearly all the :schoels were run for
term of about eight months, and tha
while the public schools properly speak
ing were run for only three or fou
months, yet most of the teachers weri
employed for a term of from eight t
nine months, and the salary guaran
teed the teacher for the whole term b:
the patrons, and that if there were an:
children whose parents were not abl<
to pay tuition, such ;children were pe
nutted to continue just as if the publi
school bad not closed. Another teach
er remarked to us that there were n<
patrons of his school but such as wer
able and willing to pay their tuition a
small as it was for the whole term.
The greatest trouble in most schoc
dis,triets in the country is not the abili
ty to pay the tuition, but such childrei
as are large enough to work in the fielt
were needed to help in the cultivatioi
of the farm, and were kept fronm scho4.
onl that account.
If the schools were entirely free an<
kept open for nine months in the yea
there would be many children wh
would be unable to attend.
Yet we would be glad to see ever:

term of nine months, thus giving al
the children an opportunity to attend
Our municipal election passed of
very quietly. Our people accepted th
action of the citizen's meeting in goon

"To the Manner Born."
TIhe following communicationl wa
addressed to our Prosperity correspon
dent and we publish it, as it throw
some more light on the question die
DEA SiR:-Some time since yol
called my attention to a discussion i:
the Newberry Herald and News as ta
whether or not the expression "To th<
manner born," found in Hamlet, Ac
ii, seue iv, is a proper rendering. IL
a recent letter to Rev. W. J. H. Hogan
of West Dedlam, Mass., .I chanced t<
men:ti the matter and solicit hi
(pinion on the question. Mr. Hogai
is a ripe scholar, and thoroughly verse<
in English literature. I therefore sub
mit what he has to sa in reply to m:;
injuiry. lie says:
"That c.uestion about the sentence it
Hamlet erops up occasionally and fur
nishes quite an impulse to the study o
Shakespeare. . . And I fear it uneve
wvill be settled. My copy, wvhich care
fully nlotes all the variations from th'
folio editionl, and says that the 2' line
following are not in the quarto 1603
nor in folio edition 1623, gives the pass
' Hor. Is it a culstom?

But to my nmind-though I ami nativ
And to tile mannerl~ born, it is a eus
More honored in the breach, than th
Italic is mine.
"The 22subsequent lines are not foun<
in the editions above mentioned.
"As~ the cu.stom of drunken revelryi
referred to, I should consider the read
being evidently a misprint that escaped
the eye of the proof reader, as in the
"Wicked Bible" the word not was
omitfed in the seventh commandment
and not discovered until a number- of
copies had been sent abroad. . . -
I would remark . . that what
Shakespeare puts into Hamlet's mouth
refers to Englishmen rather than to
Danes, for it was impossible that an
untraveled man should do otherwise.
He makes English customs prevail
everywhere he lays his scenes, and
makes his mien and women English to
the core. But that is the habit of most
writers. It is said no artist can escape
his race predilictions and influences.
A Chinaman would make all women
have a Chinese cast of features, and no
one but a Chinaman could paint a
Chinese woman. The trick is notice
able even when one would not expect
the variation was great enough to make
an ineradicable difference. So the im
mortal William paints the characters of
his own home and country, whatever
may be the age, wherever may be
placed the scene of his mimic world.
"The authorities that are given in
favor of manner are Hunter, Verplanck,
Richardson, Hudson, Halliwell, Douce,
Collier, Dyce, and Knight. I have not
l examined all these, but Dingekinck, a
careful scholar, cites them in support of
While Mr. Hogan does not say so in
words, he leaves the plain inference
that the reading "to the manor born"
is to be found in some editions of
Shakespeare. Yours truly,

A hundred years has passed since the

the presence of an assemblage of heroic
t men whose devotion had led the colo

r George Washington took the oath of
office as Chief Magistrate of the new
born republic. This impressive act was
preceded at 9 o'clock in the morning,
- in all the churches of the city, by
prayer for God's blessing on the gov
ernment and its first President.
The centennial of this illustrious
event in our history has been declared
a general holiday by Act of Congress to
the end that the people of the whole
country may join in commemorative
ceremonies appropriate to the day.
In order that the joy of the occasion
may be associated with deep thankful
ness in the minds of the people for all
our blessings in the past and devout
supplication to God for their gracious
continuance in the future, rep)resenta
tives of religious creeds, both Christian
and Hebrew, have memorialized the
government to designate an honr for
prayer and thanksgiving on that day.
INow, therefore, 1, Benjamin Harri
sonl, President of the United States of
America, in response to this pious and
reasonable request, do recommend that
on Tuesday, April 30, at the hour of
nine o'clock in the morning, the people

implore the favor of God that the
blessings of liberty, prosperity and
epeace may abide with us as a people and
that His hand may lead us in paths of

Postmaster General Wanamaker
seems determinedl that Mrs. Stonewall
Jackson shall hold an office. He ap
pointed her postmistress at the little
town of Lexington, where her husband
)was president of a college before the
outbreak of the civil war. Her salary
here would have beeni about $600 a year.
but she declined the appoint ment, an-1
now the Richmont postoftice, which
-pays $4,000, has been tendered her. She
has the offer under considerat ion, much
to the astonishment and disgust of the
Virginia politicians. The Richmond
postoffice is one of tile best places in the
State, and there were a number of Re
fpublican candidates for the appoint
mnent. Among others was Mrs. Lizzie
V aulew, who heldthe office (luring the
two terms of Gen. Grnat's Admuinistra

and her time relieving the distress of
Union officers who wvere _prisoners at
Libby and Bellisle, but her house was
the headquarters for Uinion spies, and
it was through her that Gen). Grant
gained most of his information as to
what was going on at the Confederate
headquarters. As a reward for these
services, when he got into the WVhite
House he appointed her postmaster at
Richmond, and an attempt was made
to keep her in during the Admfinistra

too much for her, and she had to go.
Now she wants the office back again,

THE FIRE UNDER CONTROL. I
CHARLFSTON, April 7.-12:10 a.m.- t
News has just been received that the le
fire is at last under control. No details
are yet obtainable, but it is reported al
that upwards of twelve blocks in the fiI
heart of the city are in ashes and the
loss is estimated at one million dollars.
SCENES IN THE STREETS DURING THE
The following extracts from the ac- A
count in the Savannah News wiil be
read with interest as giving the facts
more in detail:
AMONG THE CROWDS. tit
It seemed as if nearly all the people ~
of the city were gathered in the neigh- e
borhood of the fire. W hole families were
grouped together. Some were hysteri
cal with excitement, others were stoical la
in their calmness. Some joked and th
laughed; not that they were pleased at th
the ruin that was being wrought, but
to give vent to their excitement. The
great majority of the people were calm, U
and spoke in subdued tones of the cala- b<
mnity, and of its efiect upon the city-of b
the ruined homes and of the wrecks of I
the finer buildings that went down one tu
after another under the fierce attacks of
the devouring flamtes. There were maly
who knew just what ought to be done
to check the fire, and couldn't under
stand why this or that thing was not
done. They would stop people, and tell o
them about the fire, its origin and pro
gress, and seemed to think that in some 01
way they were performing a service for fri
which they were particularly well of
THE SHOWER OF SPA RKS. C
Theshower of sparks was immense, ti
and covered a large area. The sparks
were large, and continued to burn for a at
long timeafterthey touched the ground pr
or roofs of buildings. The force of the if
wind was greatly increased by the ca
heated air from the bulning buildings, ca
and the sparks, therefore, were driven se
along with great force. They lodged in w
the trees and set fire to them and would pi
have caused the loss of liany more e
ouildings if the utnmost care had no01 at
been taken to brush them off the roofsa to
or put them out with wvater. ft
GUARDING THIELR RFSID)ENCES. n1
When the Guards armory, thle Walk

and Sunday-school building became mi

ough streets, in fact on every street as
far in the direction of the park asJ ones,
w: s intense. The wvind wvas still blowing
a stiff gale, and it began to look as 11
something like the scenes of the great
Chicago tire on a smaller scale would
be enacted in that part of the city
Property owner.s who held insurancs
policies conigratulated themselves upon
t hat fact, and those who held none hiaut
a feeling deep dlown in their hearts thai
they would suffer total loss, although
they did the best they could under tlia
circumstances to appear ca'u, and( t<
quiet the fears of their wives and child
ren. People ran to anid fro, hardly know
ing what to do, but the most cool
headed among them soon went to work
to save their homes and household
goods, if possible, in case the fire should
not be checked before it reached themiI
Sentinels were placed on guard on the
housetops to extinguish the sparks and
cinders that were falling faster than
autumn leaves on the houses, and to
put down wet blankets; womnen were d
iside the houses packing goods, and
all available assistance was secured inii
removing furniture, etc, into the street .
and into houses that were thoight to
ie outside of the possible reach of theb
flames. South of Liberty street the peo
pe were content to simply pack their
goods in readiness for removal,.
On Perry, fromi Bull to Dratyton, the
public thoroughfare contained stacks A
of household goods, and it was pretty
much the samte on Liberty. Johnson
square was filled with them, taken
from the houses on those parts of Perry a
and( McDonough betwveen Bull and
Barnard. All along these streets guards
were placed over the goods, to protect
them tromt people whlo only awaited a c
favorable opportunity to profit by the a
Signs of relief went up from m~aniy .a
hearts when after anl hour or so it be- l
camne apparenit that the fire wvould nJot ai
reach that part of the city.
WATCHING THE OLD CHURCHt. - h
On the streets from Perry to the park, o
after the danger there had p)assed in- d
terest seemed to cetntre mi the destruc- ii
tion of the Presbyterian Church and of b
the chapel adjoining. As people spoke a
of it tears gulshed from their eyes and tI
their lips qjuivered. So far as could be It
learned there were no accidents below tI
Perry street. i
The tiny flame near the top of the Ini- in
dpendent Presbyterian church steeple, b
which finally extended over the build- al
ing, was observed at its inception by a d
good many people at a distance, and II
the fire department was importuned to s(
extinguish it. Nothing could be done, h
however, the flame being out of the ct
reach of:the streami o:|water from the d
hose. One gentlemnan in Charlton fi
street, when he saw it, otfered to a
party in the street a nteat little sum if G
e would go up in the steeple and put
out the flames. A lady in the same
house offered to make an adition to the
reard, and the party started off with
the inltention of undertaking the work.
He could not gaint enttrance into the
church, the doors being locked .AtT
any rate, the persons whlo getnerously
ofered the reward watched ini vain for j
the flame to be extinguished. I

ate to reject me, as unworthy of any t

'ould seem to be in order now to re- ti
id you of the application of your d
trine that the Senate has made to

t rule of senatorial courtesy, to be e,
lied, in your star chamber proceed- fr

now in the application that has it
n made to your friend of the thumb- sE
nw that you invented.
But while a kindred fate overtook
[stead and myself, there was this P
'erence in the measure of our guilt, n
,, that the formter was condemned cl
what he wrote, and Iwas condemned d
what I did not write, and for which
