There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other disea.ses
put together, and until the last few
years was sup)posed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nlounced it a local disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by Con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronxovnced it incurable. ScienIco
has proven catarrhx to be a constitutio
nia! disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. .
Cheney & Co.. 'Toledo, -Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken'internally in (doses from 10
drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly
upon the blood and miucous surfaces of
the system. They offer one hundred
dollars for any case it fails to cure.

with him several weeks. Mr. MIial

When these two men left Raleigh in
1863, for their respective homes I joined
them, and our trip was uneventful
until we reached the interior of South
Carolina. The railroads were torn up
in places, and we sometimes had to
walk from one point to another. On
the night before Crozier was killed we
had marched all the night long, from
sonie point (I don't recollect the name,)
to a little place on Broad River then
called Austin. As the sun rose we
cane in sight of the river, and the sight
was so glorious to me, tired as I was, I
had a race with poor Crozier down the
long bill into the valley. We were all
soon bathing in the river. This over,
and getting some breakfast, we crossed
over to the South side, and there, for
the first time, we met this Iowa lady in
whose defense Crozier lost his life.
At Austin, on the Broad, we found
transportation, and the depot agent, or
the man in charge there, asked Crozier
if he would not take care of the lady as
far as they travelled together.
We all left Austin together the same
evening; and the result is told in this
clipping from the Atlanta Constitution.
Crozier was tried, condemned and
shot without the sanction of law, and
it all transpired in the night. We were
powerless to help him with this regi
ment of negro soldiers under the direc
tion of a Federal Colonel as brutal in
his instincts as the horde at his com
mand. The infuriated creatures
crowded men and worren, (after the
death of Crozier) about the derot,
cursing and vowing that they "had
had spne white blood that miorning,
and that they were going to have

My brother anid I were not in the
same car with Crozier when the difli
culty with the infaunous negro soldier
took place. We occupied that night
Crozier, after his iden'tification as the
man who cut the negro's throat, was
hurried away. Some town official, or
county-I don't know which now
was notified, and an attempt miade, but
a feeble one of course, under the condi
tion of affatirs then, to gIve Cr-ozier a
proper and legal trial, as he was en
titled to have. But before anything
could lie done to arrest the judgment
of- the court martial, he was shot.
(Crozier has an uncle who lived at
G;alveston, Trexas, and relatives in some
other part of the State. While at his
grave, just before he wvas shot, lie wrote
Armnead Price a note, giving his uncle's
address, and asked him to write his
uncle the cause of his (death. It is miy
recollection that lie stated in this note
that it was hardly day yet, and lie
could scarcely see to write. I insti
tuted a search among my brother's old1
papers for this note and three letters
that lie received from the Iowa lady,
one of the witnesses of the beginning
of this horrible tragedy.

this negro regiment, but it has escaped

,f their teachers.
On thisoccasion the programme con
tained a roll of 25 pupils and quite a
variety of piano, organ and vocal pieces.
'hese pieces were devotional, senti
mental and artistic, and were executed

Tihe Teachers' Institute.
On the 23rd of June every white
teacher in the county will be expected
at Newberry to aittend the institute
which will continue inl session one
The institute is for the benefit of
teachers, but by benefitting them will
be a great benefit to the schools as well.
Our common schools must be built
up, they must be made better and
more efficient, or the object for which
they were begun will be only in part
The great majority of teachers can
not attend normal schools. They have
neither the time nor the money to give
to this purpose. For such teachers the
county institute was begun. While it
does not fully meet the wants of the
nor[mal, still it helps the teacher a great
deal in his work. He can learn much
that will be of incalculable good to him
in the school room.
Every teacher sh)ould feel interested
personally in the work that is to be
done here in Jiune. He should not feel
that the time is to be spent in pleasure
alone, but that it is to be given mainly
to har d and profitable work.
The County Board of Examiners will
do all in their power to make the insti
tute a succest ~
There will be several lectures at
night during the week. Col. Rice,
State Superintendent of Education,
has promised to be here on Friday the
27th, if it is possible for him to come.

The school hell is now silent at the
academy and we feel a little strange to
not hear the familiar sound of the lit

course the teachers and pupils of
schools do too, and so miite it be.

The Wives of France, Eng!and, -and Ameal
L From East and West.]
-e Club life is unknown in France, e
er cept among the very upper classes.
ieMan and .wife are constantly together
,and France is a nation of .Darbys an34
eJoans. There is, I believe, no country --
00 where men and women go through -
er life on such equal terms as France. Iri
'y England (and here again I speak of the
nmasses only) the man thinks himself.a
~h much superior being to the woman. It
to is the same in Germany. In America
it I should feel inclined to believe that a
woman looks down upon a man with a
certain amount of -contempt.. She re
ceives at his hands attentions of all
-sorts; but I cannot say tnat I have ever I
ed discovered in her the slightest trace of
gratitude to man.
Will you have a fair illustration of
the position of women in France, in j
England, in Ainerica? Go to a hotel
and watch the arrival of couples in the
adining room. In France you will 'e
them arrive together, walk abreast to.
ward the seat assigned to them, very
ill often arm-in-arm. In England you will
see John Bull leading the way, fol
-lowed by his meek wife, with her eyes
cast down. In America, behold the
