'.For the cause that lacks assistance,
For t be future hi the distance,
And the good that I can do.
The Story oi a Trail.
She was a tall, stout individual and
sprang out of Uie wagon as lightly as
a spring chicken after a grass-hop
per. 11c was a little, withered, dried
up weasel, and followed slowly, with
a basket of eggs. They entered one
of our stores and she asked :
"What are you givin' for eggs?"
'?Eight cents," was the reply of the
"Well, here arc three dozen," said
' the fat party, "and I'll take it out in
"But I want some yarn to mend
up mj socks," put in the old man.
"The weather will soon be warm,"
replied the fat party, "and you can
then go without socks."
"Hut my boots hurt my feet," in
sisted the old man.
"Go barefooted," said she rather
sharply. Then turning to the clerk,
she changed her tone, and remarked :
"?"Young man please count out the
' eggs and give mc four yards of cali
co to match this 'ere dress."
"But-," the old man was going
to continue, when she raised her
huge index finger and said : "Henry
Winter Davis Spriggins, them 'cro
eggs urc mine; the hcus what laid
'era arc mine ; the corn what fed 'era
was mine, and 1'sc going to have a
trail on this ere dress as long as
Betsy Gowen's, if every toe on 3*our
foot turn into gumbilcs. Now, shut
'up! and you youngster, yank of that
'?cro calico, or you will hear a bum
ble bee r. buzzin'."
The old man shut up, and the
clerk yanked off the calico,
Don't Get the Big Head.
Don't get too big for your breeches
.?just because you are a little prosper
'ous, and have a few more dollars
than some of your less fortunate
?neighbors. Man)' a man much bet
ter off than you are has come to his
wallet and slaff. Before the war we
remember to have heard a then rich
?man say that he was never to work
lin the field. That same man to-day
is ^ploughing an ox and splitting
:rails. Facts?and, if we felt so dis
posed, could name him. Go slow on
your moonshine prosperty and riches,
?for you may yet tumble. Don't get
the big head, but take your prosperi
ty slow?you may get under the
wcalln r, and yet be glad to have
your poor neighbors recognize you.
A poor man is just as good as a rich
one, if not better?were ii not for
the poor people, this thing called a
world would soon bo nothingness,
and the inhabitants would soon go
to the devil. The poor, not the
rich man, keeps this world moving.

How Not to Get Locai News.
He came into our office, and after
paying his subscription, said :
"1 guess you can stop sending my
paper, I've just subscribed for a pa
per I need more."
"Just so," wc returned.
IIo pulled it out of his pocket and
handed it to us for inspection. It
was a Philadelphia publication, being
neatly printed, ornamented with a
handsomely engraved head, and con
taining about forty-eight columns of
"A very fair looking paper," said

much news concerning our county in

What Farmers Sucoeed.
That farmer will succcd who makes
up his mind that tho whole Beeret of
success is in himself, that it is tho
man and not tho husircss that tells,
lie will succeed if ho brings to bear
the same amount of skill, forethought,
energy, economy and judgment, that
any other branch of business requires.
I Ho will succeed if he sticks close to
j his farm, as the mechanic does to his
shop, and not expect to work three
or four months and then take his
ease the rest of the year. That farm
er will succeed who lakes the papers
and digests what he reads, and is not
afraid of new ideas and now inetho
of industry. Ho will succeed if it is
his intention, that whatever he sends
to umikct shall be the \cry best, and!
so made and put up thai when seen
it will be captivating fur its freshness,
cleanliness and purify, and will be
unhcasitatingly taken on account of
his well known character for honesty
of weight, measure and count. Those'
who have farms may think themselves
fortunate, for although they will not
thereby lind sudden rofuls to wealth,
they certaiuly prove that persistent
farm labor will bring a sure reward.
It is worth)' of notice, that the adven
turer and speculator, with blasted
hopes and shattered health and for
tune, have in the end to come back
to the farm for health and safety.
Agriculture is the basis of national
strength and wealth, and a most cer
tain and liberal support of all who
follow it intelligently.
The Old Flag.
What is the matter wi& tho people
of Sumtcr, any how? If Mr. Charles
H. Moiso is reported correctly in Iiis
testimony before the Teller Commit
tee the Stars and Stripes are not very
popular in the Game Cock Count)*,
and by the time Mr. Charles II.
Moise's statement t,o this effect shall
have run through a half dozen of the
stalwart organs of the northwest, it
will have been made plain to the
mind of the world that the people of
Sumtcr County stand sadly in need
of some more reconstruction. If Mr.
Charles H. Moi&c's statement is true
then arc the people of Sumtcr very
stupid, and sadly iu need of correc
tion. Each rcd-shirted Democrat in
the county should be penned up and
fed on broiled American Eagles for
at least six months. The men should
be made to wear the uniform which
brother Jonathan always wears in
the dime novels and on the stage ;
and the ladies should all be forced to
dress a la Columbia, while the in
fants should be condemned to wear
penny bibs and tuckers, made of red,
while and blue, until after they arc
weaned. In fact, the people of Sum
tcr should be put through such a
course of discipline that, at the mere
sight of a carpet-bag, every man, ?vo
rnan and child in the county would
rise up aud shout, until they arc
hoarse, for the old flag?and an ap
