One would think that the alleged
Democratic papers with corpora
tion gold-bug ownership, would
sometimes tire of killing Bryan and
burying the silver craze, but they
never do. The spasm seems to jsejze
them regularly at certain periods of
the moon. 8ome special penny
llnpr sends out the stuiT to his sub
sidized sheet, and the others all
copy it with avidity. This corpora
tion syndicate of money servers are
trying now to boom Gorman, of
Maryland, for the Presidency, and
the Nashville American, ever alert
to news of this character, thinks
that for ''expediency sake" it might
be well to nominate him ; that Gor
man could more nearly unite the
party than any man yet mentioned.
Indeed! And who would he unite?
He is neither gold-bug nor Demo
crat; neither silverite nor Republi
can. He is all things to all men and
has been on all sides of all public
questions. He is an antiquated
time-server, a played out back num
ber, and his candidacy is a huge
joke. He couldn't carry a state in
.the Union, and the gold i tea know it,
is why they are trying to load the
party with him as its nominee.
The Herald was proud of its
"Carrier Boy's Address" this Christ
mas. It was not only neat and ar
tistic, but better still, it was original.
The verses, which were true in
metre, smooth in rythm and lofty in
sentiment, were composed by Mr.
Bruce Tuckerof the Herald's reper
torial force, and all the mechanical
work was done in the Herald's
department. Our patrons ' seemed
very appreciative of the faithfulness
with which the boys had delivered
their favorite paper for the year
and in the name of our carrier boys
wa return their thanks for the lib
erality shown them. The verses on
the address, written by Mr. Tucker,
read as follows:
King, O Christmas bells, in gladness!
Let the earth rejoice and sing!
Tell strain the wondrous story of the
blrh of Christ, our King!
Born to save a world from anguish,
born to change our night to day;
Born to lift the heavy burdens that op
press us on life's way.
His the bitter pain and sutt'riog, His
the death upon the troe;
Ours the blessing life eternalotrs
the hope thro' Calvary!
O love so deep. O heart so great, O Life
in mercy given!
This Christmas morn our souls we lift
in praise to Thee in Heaven !
Next Thursday, January 5, 1899,
the first issue of Mt. Pleasant's ne
paper, the Chronicle, will make its
appearance, with Mr. Rufus C.
Jackson as Editor, and Mr. DeWitt
M. Gordon, formerly of NaBhville
as Manager. These gentlemen have
invested in an up-to-date newspa
per and job office outfit, anl will
give their time, talent and expert
ence towards making the Chronicle
a live newspaper. Mr. Jackson is a
smooth, easy, graceful writer, and
the business manager, Mr. Gordon
is an experieuced man in his line

The grip is epidemic in Columbia
White and black there are perhaps
not less than five hundred sick with
it. Quite a number have been
severely ill, but the death rate is
encouragingly small. There are
hardly enough real well people to
do the work of the town. The bar
bers, the printers, the clerks, the
bosses, the cooks, the porters, they
all have it, and half of the people' at
work are sick enough to be in doors
ii not in bed. In New York, Wash
ington, 8t. Louis, Louisvillo, Mem
phis, nearly everywhere in fact, the
grip is epidemic, and in many places
it has been much more fatal than in
Senator Justin 8. Morrill, of
Vermont, died last Monday, in the
89th year of his age. Both in point
of service and of age, he was the
oldest member of the Senate, having
served continuously in the Senate
for 31 years. He was the author o
the Morrill tariff act of 1861. which
was the basis of all the tariff legis
lation of war times.

Make the same good resolutions
for next year you did for this, and
then resolve to keep them. Old, bad
habits are sometimes hard to over
come ; new and better ones h re some
times harder to take on. Hut "it at
first you don't succeed, then try, try
again." And If you find that you
aie miserably weak and fultof fault
and that there is no help in you,
then cull upon Him who is willing
and ready and mighty to save. Ask
Him to take all envy, hate, malice
und selfishness out of your heart and
implant therein love for Him and
for your fellowman, and you will
find then that the burdens of love
grow lighter and the hope for the fu
ture more bright.
The Nashville papers announce
that the Second and Third Tennes
see Regiments will soon be sent to
Nashville to be mustered out. The
Second is now at Columbia, 8
C, and the Third at Anniston, Alt.,
and there is no sense in moving
them anywhere to be muMered.
The cheapest and most expeditious
way would be to muster them out
where they are. However, we are
not particularly concerned, so they
are not sent to Columbia.
A Legislature that will allow it
self to be lobbied with, is as culpa

vails, the people are to blame for
choosing such representatives. Put
that in your pipe and smoke it. We

delegation will be hypnotized by

Mr. Mary Ellen Trimble.
Word was received here last Mon
day, announcing the death in Cin
cinnati, on (Jhrtstmas morning, oi
Mrs. Mary.EUen . Trimble. Since
then friends have been unable to
hear anything further. The cause
of her death and place of interment,
is not known here. Her daughter,
Miss Janie Trimble, was with her at
the time, but since the first an
nouncement she has not communi
cated with friends here. Mrs. Trim
ble was a sister of Mr. 8. M. Arnell
and Mrs. Janie Dorset, and formerly
lived here. She had been in frail
health for a number of years, and
had been living in Cincinnati only a
few months. She was a patient,
long-suffering christian, and though
she died in a far away city among
strangers, the God who never loses
sight of or forgets one of His child
ren, was with her unto the end, and
will give to her the crown of reward
for the faithful. For the only child,
heartbroken, timid, desolate and
alone, the tenderest, deepest sym
pathy of all is felt.

Mr. Enos Cardwell died last Sat
urday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at
his home in South Columbia, from
the effects of a stroke of paralysis
which he received early Saturday
morning. This was the second
stroke of paralysis he had suffered,
having received one two or three
weeks before. Deceased was in the
38th year of his age, and leaves a
wife to mourn his loss. He was a
brick manufacturer and contractor
by trade, being a member of the
firm of Simpson & Cardwell. Born
in England, he moved to this coun
try about fifteen years ago, and has
resided at this place for several
years past. The funeral services
were conducted in the South Co
lumbia Methodist church, of which
congregation he was a member,
Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and
the interment was in Rose Hill
Cemetery under the direction of the
order of Odd Fellows. The services
were conducted by Revs. J. F. Beas

One day a king who was hunting
became lost. As he looked for the
road, he heard talking, and ap
proached the place whence the
sound proceeded, and saw a man
and his wife who were cutting wood.
The woman said: "I must confess
that our mother Eve was very wrong
in eating the forbidden fruit. If
she had obeyed God, we should not
have the trouble of working all the
time.'' The husband answered her:
"Eve was cer ainly very wrong in
eating the forbidden fruit, but Adam
ought to have been wiser, and not to
have done what she said. If I had
been in his place, and you had
wished me to eat that fruit, I should
not have . listened to you." The.
king approached and said to them:
'You have, then, much trouble, my
poor people?" "Yes," answered
they, "we work like horses from
morning until night, and yet we
have much difficulty to make a liv
ing." "Come with me," said the
king to them, "I will feed you with
out work." At that moment, the
officers of th9 king who sought him,
arrived, and the poor people were
very much astonished and very joy
ful. When they were in the palace,
the king gave them good clothes, a
carriage and servants, and every
day they had twelve dishes of food
for their dinner.
At the end of a month they served
them twenty-four dishes; but at the
middle of the table they placed a
large disli that was covered. At
once the wife, who had plenty of
curl isity, wished to .open the dish ;
but an officer of the king, who was
present, said to her that the king
forbade anybody to touch it, and
that he did not wish them to see
what was ins'de the large dish.
When the servants had gone out,
the husband saw that his wife would
not eat anything, and that she was
sad. He asked her what was the
matter, and she answered that she
did not care to eat any of the good
things which were upon the table,
but she wanted what was in the
covered dish. "You are foolish,"
said her husband; "have they not
told you that the king forbids K?"
Then the woman bgau to cry, and
said that she would kill herself.
When her husband saw her weep,
he was very sorry, and as he loved
her very much, he told her that he
would do anything to keep her from
vexing herself. Meanwhile he
opeued the dish and out of H ran a
