"But I want some yarn to mend
up my socks," put in the old man.
"The weather will soon be warm,"
replied the fat party, "and you can
then go without socks."
"But 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 me four yards of cali

"But-," the old man was going
to continue, when she raised her
huge index finger and said : "Henry
Winter Davis Spriggins, them 'ero

The old man shut up, and the

"Just so," we returned.
Ho pulled it out of his pocket and

What Farmers Succeed.
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 the business that tells.
He will succeed if lie brings to beur
the same amount of skill, forethought,
energy, economy and judgment, that
any other branch of business requires.
Ho will succeed if he sticks closo to
his farm, as the mechanic does to his
shop, and not expect to work three
or four months and then take his
case the rest of the year. Xhat larm
or will succeed who takes the papers
and digests what he reads, and is not.
afraid of new ideas and new methods
of industry. He will succeed if it is
Ids intention, that whatever he sends
to maiket shall bo the \ery best, and
so made and put up thai when seen
I it will be captivating for its freshness,
cleanliness and purify, and will be
S unheasitntingly taken on account of
his well known character lor honesty
I of weight, measure and count. Those'
who have farms may think themselves
fortunate, for although they will not
thereby find sudden roads to wealth,
they certainly prove that persistent
farm labor will bring a sure reward.
Il is worthy of notice, that the adven
turer and speculator, with blasted
hopes and shattered heulth 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.

What is the matter widt' the people

II. Moise i? reported correctly in his
testimonj' before the Teller Commit
tee the Stars and Stripes are not very
popular in the Game Cock County,
and by the time Mr. Charles O.
Moise's statement to 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
Sumter Count}' stand sadly in need
of some more reconstruction. If Mr.
Charles H. Moi&e's statement is true
then are the people of Sumter very
stupid, and sadly in need of correc
tion. Each rod-shirled Democrat in
the county should be penned up and
fed on broiled American Eagles for
at least Bix months. The men should
be made to wear the uniform which
Brother Jonathun always wears in
the dime novels and on the stage ; I
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,
white and blue, until after the}' arc
weaned. In fact, the people of Sum

course of discipline that, at the mere
sight of a carpet-bag, every man, ?vo

But wiser far is be who has learned wisdom and experience from the bitter lessons of the long past-by paying more for tho
necessities of life than they are worth simply because they have been granted a little time. The lesson taught has been a
hard one, but still there is time to halt, and retrace you steps. Buy where you get tbe most goods for the least cash money.
