So it is all over South Carolina. The

this excess is attributable to the in

is simply sand in your eye when

commends a $3 poll tax, which would

Mr. Townsend went on to say that it

Col. Youmans was the next speaker.
He asked Mr. Townsend who paid the
expenses in the Cantwell case. Mr.
Townsend said he didn't know if they
bad been paid, that the State could pay
them and relieve George W. Williams,
but that if the State did not pay them
Williams would have to do so.
Col. Youmans-You see now the gen
tleman who is in favor of the rich
bankers. If Mr. Townsend will look
into this-matter, he will find that the
state paid the expenses, which this
rich banker could have been made to
pay. Mr. Townsend did not know who
paid them. Is not he a nice man to set
himself up as authority against such a
man as Judge Wallace?
Col. Youmans said that there was a

ram is a prosperous furniture dealer
Ld undertaker. He is a widower, is a
randsomne man, drives a good horse,
ad has many virtues and vices. He
2as been the target for maids and
vidows for several years, but, his heart
ras not been touched, because, as he
;ays, he wants a brave-hearted, plucky
ife, and has not yet found her. Two
ears ago, when the combined Courts
af Foresters of Ansonia and Birming
am held a picnic and field day at the
Derby Driving Park, Chief C'olwell
dvertised that he would marry the
firs handsome girl.who wvould go up
n a ballo<n with him. Hundreds of
~irls and- a 'few miiddle-aged women
~nswered the advertisement, all ofier
ng to brave the dangers of an aerial
trip with him. He wrote to the:ui all
to.present themselves at the pa~rk on
he day of the ascension and he would
make his choice.
When the day came not a girl in the
vast crowd present to see the ascension
:ame forward, and Chief Coiwell was
isappointed. Not to be balked, bow
ever, he issued a second announcement
last summer, and, as before, he received
many answers, somte from those who
bad written to him before, but who ex
ased themselves on various pleas. Mr.
Colwell was satisfied that this time he
would find a wife, hut again not a
ingle girl presented herself, and be
bias pascsed another year of lone!y
widowerhood, nursing his hope that
the third time he would surely win.
The third anbual field day of the
Foresters is to come off on Saturday,

rank offer: He will marry any good
Looking, respectable girl who goes up
with him in the balloon which is to as
end from the Derby Driving Park on
the day of the picnic. He is in earnest,
or says he is, and his friends say he is a

-ULE UNION 31EETING.
A Liv"y Tilt Betw-z, the Antis :,d Re
UNIo, August 4.-Thie most largely
:ttde-d meetinag of the campaign,
with the exception of that at Charles
ton, was held at Uniou to-day. Twen
ty-five hundred persons, including four
hundred negroes, constituted the
crowd. The full Tilmn strcngth of
the county and a number of the uover
nor's admirers from York and Chester
were present. The complexion of the
gathering was not less than two-thirds
for Tillman. Some of the Tillmanites
claim a larger proportion than this,
and, on the other liand, certain Con
servatives claim a much larger repre
sentation than oue-third.
Union County has been a stronghold
of Tillmanism, but under the leader
ship of Chairman Browning the Con
servatives have performed a remarka
ble work, and are now confident of
having over 1,000 of the 2,300 white vo
1 ters in the county. One precinct that
had 13 Conservatives two years ago has
.53 now, and other changes have been
equally worthy of note.
The meeting was held in a beautiful
grove within the corporate limits. The
speaking began at 10.30 and concluded
at 5 o'clock, the Conservatives being
represented by Messrs. Orr, Sheppard
and Youmans and the Administration
by. Messrs. Mayfield, Tillman and
Benet, the latter trio, in the absence of
any time limit fixed by the executive
committee, occupying nearly two
thirds of the ti:uc.
The opening argument was made by
Superintendent Mayfield with what
was intended, but failed, to prove a
crushing array of figures in support of
his position. Mr. Benet made his ini
tial appearance and announced that he
is in-the race to stay, alleged influences
to the contrary, notwithstanding. Col.
Orr again took the.stump and deliver
ed a vigorous address. Messrs. Gary,
Townsend and Farley were present, but
held their peace.
Chairmau A. C. Lyles ably presided,
and his executive committee are enti
tled to commendation for the manner
in which the meeting was conducted
and the speakers and newspaper men
were entertai+ied. The gathering was
an orderly one, and there was no at
tempt at howling down or unfair play.
The speakers were occasionally inter
rupted, but with no malicious intenton
the part of the-interlocutors.
TILLMAN IS MADE TO LOOK SMALL.
Only once was the normal serenity of
the occasion disturbed. A verbal en
counter between Governor Tillman and
Cot. Orr enlivened the prosy debate and
for a few moments aroused the gather
ing to a state of considerable excite
ment. While no outbreak of hostilities
occurred, there was at one time such a
prospect of collision as to cause a num
ber of persons in the gathering to get
their pistols in readiness. A few were
visible from the stand.
*In the course of his remarks Gover
nor Tillman referred to Col Orr and the
charges that the latter had made
against him. He read from the Press
and Banner of July 20 a report of Orr's
speech at Abbeville, in which Orr was
quoted as saying:" Nearly all the
preachers and ladies are opposed to him.
One preacher said to me: 'I am no pol
itician, but I will, not support a man
who flaunts his profanity in public and
boasts of not going to church.' "
. Turning to Col. Orr, Governor Till
man asked: What is the name of your
Orr, 'arising: I do not care to bring
the preacher's name into this- discus
sion, but you may appeal to preachers
or any body else here, and they will no
doubt sustain the truth of the state
ITillman: If he doesn't give the name
he is responsible for the statement.
Orr: Yes, I am.
Tillmnan: I do curse sometimes, but
there's not one drop of the hypo
crite in my blood.
The Governor appealed to ladies in
the audience to say if he had said any
thing to offend them. No response.,
Tillman, turning to Orr, raud with
great vigor: Any preacher or anybody
else that says that I boasted about not
going to church, lies.
Orr, advancing to the front, but with
extreme coolness: Governor, are you
tryin gto raise a personal difficulty
wtih me ?
Tillman: I am not.
Orr: You cannot intimate that Ihave
lied without having it thrown back in
your teeth. I said you boasted of your
immorality, and you have asserted on
the stand that you are _a God Al
Tillman: I am a G:od Almighty's
- Orr: Then Hie did not (10 himself
credit when he made you. If you un
dertake to raise a personal difficulty
you can do it. You know as well as I
do that you cannot throwv insults in my
face without getting them back.
Tillmian: You have come here and
made an assertion- . -
Orr: I didn't make that assertion.
Tillman: Then you are not called a
liar. but the man that made the asser

on the stand, and the crowd displayed
cnsiderable excitement. -The Gover

full of determination. Itemarks :and
replies followed each o>ther in rapid
succession, and the excitemnent deep

Orr: Do you intimate that I am a

Orr: Said what? I said that you had
repeatedly cursed on the stand.
Tillman: I leave it to Governor
Sheppard if he ever heard me curse on
the stand but once, and that. was at
Orr: Do you deny that you said you
had rather go to hell with one set of
men than to heaven with another? If
it is your intention to make a personal
difficulty out of this matter I want to

don't allow any man to come here and
repeat a he on me.
O1 r: I have never repeated a lie on
you, and if you say I have repeated a
lie you tell one.
Feeling was running pretty high and
excited parties clambered upon the
railing of the stand.
Governor Tillman ended the sus
pense by saying: When he says he did
not say it, that settles it, that ends it.
Friends of the debaters succeeded in
arresting the discussion, and affairs
were resuming a brighter aspect when
a voice shouted: "Don't let him bull
doze you, Governor!"
"Nobody knows better than Orr tpat
he nor nobody else can bulldoze me,"
was the reply.
The Governor proceeded to the con
sideration of other matters.
Love Tale Told by the Wires.
It was a little railway station far
ba:k in the country, but less than 203
miles from New York, where two roads
crossed each other. Barring the click of
the telegraph instrument in the little
coop of an office, not a sound could be
heard to break the unusual quietness of
thesummer day, which was justdying
into dusk. The three passengers who
had changed ears- and were waiting
for their respective trains whiled away
the time as Lea they could. Two of them
had their thoughts buried in novels.
The third found recreation in what the
clattering lips of the electric sounder had
to say. It had been a long time since he
had listened to the tattle of a telegraph
wire, and the familiar sound fascin
ated him, He heard distant stations
report the passing of trains and em
ployees and officials commnuicate with
each other. The pretty young woman
who occupied the little coop was busi
ly at work writing. She paid no at
tention to the instrument. On the
third finger of her left hand she wore
a modest little .gold ring, set with a
Finally the sounder stopped its ever
lasting clatter. The quietness was be
ginning to get oppressive, when the
old-time operator's rusty ears. heard
the sounder click out the letters "Pf"
twice and "Mn" once. He saw a smile
creep over the face of the young wo
man, and then heard her click back.
"Ii." It was the operator at M

back over the wire.
The old-timer pricked up his ears
instantly. *He knew t.hat the opera

which he did not want his chief at
f,he othe.x end of the wire beyond P
to hear. So he had asked the young
woman to ground the wire and send
his secret into the earth after it had
reached her ears.

the sounder to-attract the attention of

ty Teachers' Institute.
The Teacher's Institute was called to
order on Monday morning, August 2,
by Professor Craighead, of Wofford
The faculty in attendance is espe
I cially strong. Prof. Craighead, director,
assisted by Dr. Lander, of Williams
ton and Prof. Hand of Florence Graded
We arrived in time to hear only the
l closing remarks of Dr. Lander's talk
on "Pronunciation." Judging by what
we did catch we feel that we missed a
Dr. Lander was followed by Prof.
Craighead,who gave a most interestirg
talk on "The Growth of Popular Edu
cation." He began with the Greeks,
and showed that their education did
not reach out to the people; that it was
-for the few. Good education is defined
by Plato as follows: "Good education
is that which gives to the soul, the
mind and the body all that perfection
of which they are capable." This
definition he things has not been im
Prof. Craighead passed rapidly over
the influences left upon the education
of the world by the French, and came
to the great work done in this line by
Martin Luther, the "Titan of the Ref
ormation," both religious and edura
tional. He quoted freely and perti
nently from Luther's writings. Fol
lowing the line of thought indicated by
the quotations used, Prof. Craighead
emphasized the fact that education is
nct to teach one to make a living. This
is too low a plane to place it upon. But
that it is to prepare one for living; to
prepare one for the responsibilities of
citizenship; to prepare one to 'work out
his or her destiny. With Spinoza, he
says, "The really good things of life lie
not in those things which the few only
can possess,-but rather in those things
which the many may possess." Space
will not allow me to say mere of this
excellent talk, only this: It was as full
of thought as an egg is of meat.
Prof. Craighead was followed by Prof.
Hand, subject, "Arithmetic." Prof.
Hand began by saying that he did not
know whether he was orthodox or het
erodox; that in this matter it might be
that orthodoxy was my-doxy and het
erodoxy your-doxy. He said there was
quite a difference between knowing
nuibers and knowing figures; that we
should lead the child to think natur
ally. D3 not give the child rules; let
them understand the subject and make
thcir own rules. Often, rules were a
hindrance and more difficult to learn
than the subject. They were a bugbear.
We should teach numbers with ob
jects, so. the child may be able to grasp
the idea; but just when to cease using
objects is to be left to the judgment of
Dr. Lander followed in a talk on- Ge
ography. He said we should be inde
pendent of text -books; that we should
begin by having the child to draw on
a blackboard, placed horizontally, a
picture. (do not call it a map) of the
school room (this a ground plan); then
put in . windows and doors. If the
school house has more than one room,
have them all drawn. After this go
out and draw the yard and place roads
in proper position in the picture. All
this gives the child a knowledge of the
country and teaebes them to intelli
gently read a map. Usually we find a
spring near the school h'ouse. Go down
to the branch and play in the water
with the children-we have not grown
old enough to dislike playing in the wa
ter-build -an ~island and show them
what it is; join this to mainland and
show a peninsula, an isthmus. Teach
these names as you go along. In this
way what sometimes is a dry study full
of parrot-like repetitions of questions
and a.nswers becomes a live and enter
All the subjeets were ably handled,
and we feel sure that much benefit was
derived by. the assembled teachers and
visitors. It was decided by vote that
talking ariongst the teachers durnng
the presentation~ of a subject wvas not
desirable;- also that the sessions would
be held from 0 a. m. to 1 p. In.
Again too late to hear the continua
tion of Dr. Lander's talk on Pronunci
Prof. Craighecad gave an interesting
and practical talk on Voice Culture.
The voice is to be cultivated just as you
would an arm. You cannot have a
good voice, as a general rule, without
good -health. A rich voice indicates
good health; a thin voice, bad health.
Cicero, in order to be heard in the noisy
Senate of Rome, found it necessary to
take a three years' course of gymnas.
tics in Greece, in order to strengthen
his voice.~ As a general rule, Amecri
cans do not have good voices; eatar
rhal affections are too common.
Suggested, that a good way to pre
vent taking cold is to bathe chest and
throat in cold water every morning,
Upon rising go to a window and take
four or five long breaths of fresh air.
Do not use voice if you have a.cold.
The vocal organs are very delicate and
it will take a long time to repair a
slight injury. So be very careful of
your voice. Prof. Craighead here gave
us practical lessons in guttural, ehesi
and abdominal tones. Several of the
reachers arose and followed him ir)
these very interesting exercises. Afrei
giving these different tones and ex
plaining by exam'ples their uses he cau
tioned us as to the pitching of our voices
Pitch voice from the lips, not frorr
throat. Strive to get perfect control o:
those muscles which would mould th4
voice. Do not breathe - through, th<
mouth. Do not go out of a warmroom
into cold atmosphere and talk: keep the
mouth shut. This subject of voice eul
ture was considerably discussed.
After a short recess Prof. Welch gave
an interesting and instructive talk. on
Botany. He illustrated his remarks by
appropriate drawing on the board.: He
entered a strong plea for the cultiva
tion of flowers. Said that as. a general. ,?f
rule men did not care for flowers. He
emphasized the natural love for fldwers
by children by sayiug that if one passed
along the streets of a city with a boc
quet of flowers in hand,- soop son.e
street urchin wou'd say, "Mister,.plese-'
give me a flower." The teachers, he -
says, are largely responsible for the
lack of love for fiowers shown by grown"
people. Children should .draw the
specimen from nature. During reeita
tion each child should have its own
specimen, and be miade to do, its own
investigating; by no means allow them 4
to watch each other and in this way
get information. Prof. Welch said he
had seen fuschias represented in stamp
ing patterns, with leaves strung along
the stem singly, when as a matter of
fact nature places them opposite each
other. By having children to draw
from nature these errors would be
made impossible. This talk was en
joyed by all.
Prof. Welch was followed by Prof.
Hand on Arithmetic. This subject
was well handled. In all examples see
clearly what is wanted, then do it.
An example in compound proportion,
and also one in interest, was taken to
illustrate his ideas. These were clearly
explained. In. interest believed
would use common fractions instead of
decimals. The exposition of the sub
-ject was very satisfactory. In the dis
cussion three different methods;were
advocated by as many different per
sons. It was thought best to, presbnt
as many as possible to pupil and hear
his individuality- to determine which
he should use.
After arranging for lectures during -
week the Institute adjourned to meet
9 a. m. Wednesday.
