Th? Pickens Sentinel Makes a CJiaractoric
Reply.
The Pi'clcns Sentinel hist week makes
personal reference to us instead of adhering
to the subject matter. From an article
of some length wo find the following
paragraphs :
"We Tail to see where our ' public
j?*]iool system is in direct opposition to
the spirit of true Democracy." Tt has

country and generally accepted l?v the
people that the perpetuation of our free
institutions depended upon the education
of the poo pi p.
"Germany, by a compul?orv system of
education, has risen from tho rank of a
Feeond or third power in Europe to the
position of a first power, and the New
Kiiflland and Northern States of our own
country have far out-stripped us in educational
and materia! development, simply
becsuiso they took a practical view of
the duties of government and didn't
waste their time in a discussion of theories.
"The anti-helium plan, as we have
heretofore said was a dwjrraco to our civ?
iligation?it created class distinctions in
car schools which were in direct opposition
to the spirit of true Democracy."
It will be noticed that the Scntiiwf, like
nearly all the newspapers who have
nothing to support their positions, cite
Germany as an example. We know pre
cions little of Germany and her schools,
and we want no Germany in ours. Facts
in reference to illiteracy are matters of
record, and we should he pleased, if the
>Sentitle/ can divest itself of personal
abuse, and "speak to the question,"
and would furnish tho statistics in
support of its assertion about New Knirland
and other Northern States out-stripping
us in the matter of education.
The Scntiitel, it seems, thinks our rathel's
were behind the age, and terms their
school system "a disgrace to our civilization."
The facts are these, the United
States census for is.50, shows that only
five and a half per cent, of the white
ndult people of South Carolina could not
read, and this was under "tho anti-bcllum
plan," which "was a disgrace to our
civilization." Now, let us look at the
modern plan, this "German plan," this
great imported all-soul-saving plan, this
great civilization plan, of which the
country has heard so much. The United
States census for 1880, puts the per cent,
of white citizens over the ace of twenty one
veurs. who cannot read and write, at
1S.S per cent. or nearly nineteen per cent.
The new plan produces three ami .1 half
times as much illiteracy as this old plan
which "was a disgrace to our civilization."
With these facts before our eye."",
we think only those who are determined
not to see, will fail to see wherein this
imported German and New England
plan has failed, when it was supplemented
an annual tax of about half a million
dollars. For our own part, we are willing
for a little more of that disgrace
which will give us better education at
less cost.
Instead of i.llo tributes to the "German"
school business, of which no man
in South Carolina knows anything, let lis
have solid fasts. Instead of excessive
praises of our Northern brethren, please
give us statistics to prove some of the
unproved assertions about the "disgrace"
of onr former school laws. The illiteracy
of New England can be given with
exactness, and South Carolina had nothing
to lose by comparison, until she rati
oir after strange gods.

Give Us Your >antes.
While the woods are full of gentlemen
who may be witling to becomo stockholders
in factories,"and while some of
our patriotic citizens may bo anxious to
see cotton mills erected on every hill, we
should be glad to learn of the names of
any gentlemen in this county who may;
lie willing to send their own wives, sisters
or daughters to such an institution.1
In order that there may be no misunder-j
standing in this matter, we shall open
our columns for the publication of the
names of the gentlemen who may ex-l
press a willingness to place the female
members of their families in factories. J
Thero seeins to lie no end to the names of
citizens who are willing to become stock
holders. What we want to know now is,!
who of them arc willing to put theirj
families in such a concern as operatives.
It takes both stockholders and oj erativesj
to establish and run a cotton mill. If J
??ur cultured and respectable citizens are
desirous of putting their families in ot-J
ton mills, the fact can become known by ;
merely handing us tlu-ir names, and the)
- error of our position can bo thus easily j
proven.
Our patriotic citizens who may believe i
the establishment of factories is for tho
public good may show the consistency of
their work < ami faith by furnishing their'
natnes as indicated above. As far as we
have heard, all the advocates of factories!
want to be stockholders, while they seem 1
to think that somebody else may till t'u?;
place of operative. What we are won-[
(ending for, is to prevent our honest and j
virtuous women from going into a btisi-i
ness which will deny to them any social
position. If they work from dawn to
dark every day in the year, how arc they
to have any time for society and the cultivation
of the social qualities? And are
they not subject to a tyranny in factories,
which is repulsive to our notions of freedom,
and inconsistent with our love for
the female members of our families?
While there are thousand* of jmre and
good geople in factories, yet we think
they sulfer by the hardness of their lotby
the unceasing toil, and l>v at least
their partial exclusion from the outside
world. Manly men should work for the
suppoit of their families, and ladies who
have families can better provide for
themselves and their children on the
farms than by subjecting themselves to
the rules and regulations of acntton mill,
which necessarily cuts them off to a more
or less extent from the outside world,
and deprives them from any opportunity
tor education, or for maintaining any
previously acquired education.
Sonnd Doctrine.
We ask attention to the communication
of W. K. Davie, to the Xeirs and Courier,
which may be found in another column.
Wo think it altogether probable
that the blindest man in the State of
South Carolina will soon he enabled to
see not only the shallow mockery of our
pretendod anxiety about educating the
negro at a time when our own households
are deprived of the comforts and
necessities of life, but that the foolishness

dollars in the demoralization of
whites and blacks will be apparent. It
is useless for anybody to say that our
people as a whole, are solicitous ab^ut
educating the negro, and we believe the
ebarge of hypoeracy might bo brought
against us if we were to contend that we
regard tho annual appropriation of a half
million 1 or educational purposes, as a
good investment. Since 18G3 tho tax
payers of Abbeville county have paid
more than three hundred thousand dollars
for public education, and what have
they got in return under the now system.
Areourwhite people better educated than
they were before the inuaguration of the
plan? We say no, and we believe the
percentage of illiteracy has been more
than doubled. Are the negroes of our

^ because of this expenditure. If we mistake
not, the more respectable of the colored
people pay the tuition fees of their
children. They do this by their industry
i?nd economy, while the thriftless and
Ihzy wait on the public to odutate their
cnfldYen.
Edncation enables the bad to be worse,
and the good man to be better. Education
does not reguiatp the morals. With
all the boasted education and civilization
of the white people of Massachusetts, it
is alleged that tbey furnish a larger per
cent, of criminals than do the illiterate
negroes of South Carolina. In this rcpect
we presume the comparison is in
lines and decrees of crime where the
laws are at all similar. Our penitentiary
largely filled by men who are only

Charges?Positive and Syoeiflc?Will
t!?o Commissioners Explain !
i Mr. Jason L. Simpson was entrusted
yesterday by some of tho ladies of Abbeville
with deli'wles for some of Ihc sick
and afflicted inmates of the poor house.
He reports that the authorities refused
him admittance to the Institution, and
that lie was told that the inmates should
I not have the goods which had been pre|
pared for them by our ladies. The goods
| were then left on the premises, when
j they were taken charge of by others than
I for whom thev were intended. Iu con:
nection with this statement we would
i say that Mr. Simpson also savs that he
i has been informed upon the best atithor;
itv that the mattress which was sent there
j la-=t week by a charitable lady of this
town, to bo used by an afilHed woman
whose only bedding was a quilt on the
floor, has been refused to the invalid,
iand that the bed now lies unused in the
1 lott nr other waste place.
While we know nothing of our own
knowledge of the condition of the poor,
[and although we have been instructed as
| to a different mode of approaching the
! official ear of the guardians of the inmates
of the poor house, wo have ventured
to publish the above statements.
Whatever may bo the notions of these
'officers of our duty to "whisper" we
are inclined to the opinion that
sotno very unsavory statements in
reference to offu'iil duties will bo
thundered into their cars by nil incensed
public. The air is full of ugly
'rumors, ami wo havo published only
such as seemed to bear the strongest impress
of truth. The County Commissioners
are good men for whom wo have
the highest personal regard. As it would
j not be detrimental to their official dignity
to examine into tho fiets concerning
the above allegations wo know they
j will thank us for giving them an oppor!
tnnit.v to sot tliomsolves right beforo the
public. Why is it that any citizen is denied
admission into any public institution?
I* it because of a consciousness
l that the place or its surroundings is not
in a condition to be inspected? Wliv is it
that the carrier of delicacies from tho ladies
of tho village is insulted, and the irifts of
which ho is tho bearer, withheld from
i tho feeble and infirm for whom they
were intended ? Why is it that the bedjding
which was sent by a kind lady, can!
not be delivered to the miserable creature
who now sleeps on tho floor ? Why
| was tho bed thrown in tho garret? Is
not such treatment a cruelty unequalled
! in the history of our civilization? Tho
lair is full of sickening tales of eruoltv to
the poor, some of which wo have refused
I lo believe, and some of which wo have
: refused to publish.
The Savannah Railroad Tax Case?
Injunction Dissolved.
I Judge Witherspoon has filed a decree
.in the above case adverse to the plain|
tiffs, dissolving the injunction granted by
[Judire Wallace, and dismissing the complaint
with costs, lie considers that the
; township subscriptions aro to be regardled
as taxes, and that their collection can!not
bo enjoined. There will be an appeal
taken, and the Supreme Court will
have to decide which of the Circuit
Judges are correct in his view of such
!subscriptions?Judge Witherspoon or the
I late Judge Thomson. In a similar case,
heard at Abbeville?CWe and others
against Pen-in, Treasurer?where the
| plaintiffs had paid their subscriptions un- i
: dor protest and sought to have them re- ,
funded under the statute provided for|
tl 10 refundingof taxes illegally collected, j
i Judge Thomson decided that the sub-|
seriptions were not taxes, and that the
plaintiffs had no remedy under that stat-j
ute. Judge Witherspoon holds the con-,
trary view?decides that they are taxes, j
and the remedy must be sought under
; that act.

Do Not Take Kindly to the Factory.!
From h short article reproduced in:
these columns from the Charleston Neu-ft!
and Courier, it will be seen that th?;
Charleston ladies do not take kindly to :
the factory business. (We take it that:
any virtuous woman is a lady.) The:
Neic.t and Courier rather upbraids the'
"girls" and "women" for refusing so eli-j
^ible an offer, as a place in a factory, and j
even comments on the fact that some of;
the "women" had quit the factory, after j
becoming proficient in tiie business. The!
requisite number of operatives cannot be.
secured in the citv, and it has been found
necessary to import operatives from
abroad. What is the matter ?
Let our people rend the article from
the News and Courier, and if their eyesight
and their perceptive faculties are 1
good, they may be enabled to read something
"between the lines." If we could
all be stockholders, we should not object
to factories, but when the best portion of
our households are to be required to take!
places as operatives, tiicn we do object.
The Shields Verdict.
1 The f'/t'irlo/lc Observer seems displeas-!
etl at the criticisms which some of the'
country press of North Carolina have'
! made of the Shields verdict. If the OI>- \
| .server would convince the outside world
of the correctness of the verdict, that paper
should have furnished different testimony
from that given ii? tho Observer,
i Although much interest was felt by our
people in tho trial, and everybody was
prejudiced against the prisoner at the beginning,
we cannot now recall the name
: of tnore than one man who believes the
j verdict a righteous one. Whether the
i verdict was right or wrong we think we
. hnzard nothing in saying that ho could
not have been convicted at Abbeville
f Court House by a jury drawn from our
1 citizens, on the evidence as published.
Let Us Look to Our HealthThere
is ono household in this town
i in distress because of the illness of a be:
loved daughter, and the fact admonishes
>is to be scrupulously careful to obey the
j laws of health. Let the premises of eve|
rv citizen be cleaned. Cleanliness is next
1 to Godliness. Let all nersotis be clothed
I 1
, in flannel, and otherwise protected from
the vicissitudes of the changing season.
Our systems are relaxed from the long
i and excessively hot Summer, and wo
| are not in good condition to resist tho
approach of disease. Any indiscretion
may hring on sickness now. Disease
and death are brought to our homes in
tho tainted breeze. Warm clothing is a
groat protector, and excessive draughts
on our vital forces, are thus provented.
Sheep Farming:.
Despite the constant attention which Iscalled
;o the value of sheep, not only Improvers of
: the land, but as profitable from animals, for
wool and mutton, theie aro many farmers
! who have never raised or kept a single sheep,
' though their farms are adapted to raising
[sheep largely and profitably. Why this Is we
I cannot imagine, for facts and figures can be
| hud by the score to prove the profitableness
of *heep bree ilng. if necessary, and about tne
; only drawback in many localities In the l^ss
occasioned by dogs. Many a rough, wornout
or neglected farm might be brought up rapld|
ly and t>e made paying land, by breeding
, sheep thereon, as the mannre from the sheep
t Is one of the most enriching of manures, and

jadltlonal food works to the profit of the
breeder in two ways?It not only Insures good
I and profitable growth of llesh and wool, but
! It makes the manure richer and more valua1
bio. Even poor farmers can give sheep a
trial by commencing in a small way, and
then, as means and experience are trained, the
flocks can be gradually Increased by purchases,
though the natural Increase from a small
. tllock of sheep Is by no means inconsiderable,
J If properly managed and cared for as they
should be. Like any other stock, they must
have good care and food to secure the greatest

A Physician's Talk About People vrlio]
Poctor^Themselvcs.
"The extensive U6oof patent medicines and
the enormous quantity of drugs sold without I
! prescriptions Indicate how widespread Is the \
| habit of self-d<'ctoiing," said a New York
1 physician to a reporter. ''To those who Know I
: how carelessly and lunorantly these drugsarel
' twd, the thought of the harm tlie.v do Is absolutely
appalling. There is no telling how;
, long a prescription once c I veil will be used ori
i with what foolish risk It will be applied In a|
case where It will not only not do good, but;
! Is certain to work harm."
| "Do you think this habit of self doctoring i

of the physician's duty to diagnose the dls- j

patient. It is not uncommon for even edu- j
cated physicians to make mistakes in this respect.
The science of medicine has progress-1
ed so far that every part ol the human bodyi
has been pretty thoroughly studied; and the]
treatment of the ailment of each pnrt is a,
specialty. It Is impossible for one physician j
to know all these discuses as well as the spe-1
clalistx, and It is a common practice among
honest physicians to refer patients to those J
who have made ti special study of the dis-j
cases which a fillet them. It is not uncommon
for a man to go from one physician to i
another in the vain effort to discover hlsailnient.
Sometimes a patient will be treated
by successive physicians for the wrong aliment.

diseases are similar. How unlikely is
it, therefore, that persons who have not stud-1
led medicine can lind out what alls them?"
"Which do yon think dothe most self-doc-1

"Women, decidedly, especially mothers and

sembles one which the family doctor has j
treated, they will hunt up an old prescription
and administer the dose to a conlldlng husband
or helpless child. I could tell yon some
amusing stories of the mistakes that are
made in this way, as well as some instances
where more serious consequences resulted.
Take, for Illustration, a headache. It may
come from a dozen different causes?from
hunger, from indigestion, from over-excitement
of the brain, from eating too much,
from inhaiing foul air. The remedy for a
headache varies with its causes. Vet you will
And women who have a universal panacea

of such women."
"With what medicines is the most harm
done ?"
"Opiates and aperients. The heedlessness
with which morphine in various forms is
now administered In families Is alarming.
The doctor comes to attend a patient who Is
In pain. He prescribes morphia, and directs
its use. am' the patient is relieved. Tills is
enough to start the average matron on a

such drugs without a prescription in

make money tocare much whether the patient

Is true of the use of bromide, of chloroform,
and of ether. The nr.ttle that Is left partly

A VERY EARNEST PROTEST'

TiANDHFOHD. S. f\. Aucust .1, 1^S3.
To the Eilitur of The .Will ami Omvicr:
At ilte risk of being classed among the fnfslla.
I wish to enter u very earnest protest
against what appears to be a pet policy of the
.Vci/'.t and Courier. As the Trojans fenred
j 'the Greeks nn?l t he gifts ol the Greeks," so J
fear the ltcnnhlicans and the gifts of the HeI
publicans, especially when they are tendered
in the name of philanthropy, and for the advancement
of ihe cause of religion, morality
and education. I am utterly opposed to the
policy of invoking Federal aid to the system
of common schools In the Slates and ".vill,
with your permission, give a few of the many
reasons I hold for such opposition.
First, I am opposed to it. as a Republican
measure now being brought to the front as
u reserve to support the waning fortunes of
I hat parly, a new plank In a very ol.i and
very rotten piutform, stolen, it Is true, huton
which they c m pose with admiral all'eet as the
champion of tlie poor and Illiterate of both
races, and especially of the somo.vliat rebellious
negro element of the southern States.
I am opposed to It as vesting additional
patronage In the hands of the dominant
power, Democratic or Republican, as another
and very dangerous slop in the direction of
fentr.ilizai.lon and a pater a! Government.,
as giving the Federal Government a plausible

to It on llie score of economy, and because
It will be used as another pretext for maintaining
the burden of customs and internal
revenue and delay the advent of free trail'.*.
Once open the Hood-gates In the micro! cause
of education and no man can now tell to
what extremes Congress will be driven. As
In the pension business there will be found
but Jew, If any, who have the nerve to oppose
ii'j approplation, however great, tor such a
purpose. Few or none who could dan place
themselves on record In opposition. One

'ingestion and In the Interest, of those deslrIns
to Keep up a particular tariir double that
amount would be voted If necessary to prevent
a reduction of that odious burden upon
the Industry of this country; and tin illy. I
am opposed to it in behalf ol tne ne^eo himse!f
In the South. Ignorance and immorality
are not the only, nor are they the principal,
faults of the negro asa citizen. The want of
State l'rlde?the broadly national (with a bii?
N") character of bin patriotism Is his weak
point. Whoever heard of a ne^ro boasting of
i.uSikt o Unnl?i r'nmllninn i\r (Jonrodati ? His
is tiu!v that grand love of country that
knows n> North, no South, ilo Ri'st, no West:
knows no State lines and enclosures?every
aere of these Slates from oceun to ocean anil
from gulf to lake. He looks only to the General
Government for the enjoyment of the
precious rights of franchise ami citizenship,
which ills while neighbor looks for to the
StateofhiK birth or adoption. The United
Slates set him free. It was the Congress that
gave him the right to vote, and It is still to
the powers of the General Government that
he looks for tlie protection and enjoyment of
that right. It was the General Government
that was to have given him the forty acres
of land and a mule, and In his mind it was
only the maiiunlty of the whites In the several
States that defeated so desirable a consummation.
It was Federal law that gave him the right
to sit on a jury and to pass Judgment on his
late masters. It was United States soldiers
that kept the "Publican" party in power
while It lasted, and who hunted down and
prosecuted the Kuklux. So It Is perfectly
natural that the negro should look to the
Federal Government for all things. Look at
this State for instance. What does the South
Carolina negro care for the two mill tax voluntarily
levied by the Democratic whites on
their own property for the ducatlon of the
blacks and whites alike? Ilow much cratltude
has lie exhibited for the favors shown
111tr? by the school authorities In this State?
How many negroes voted for Thompson at
the last campaign? With him there Is but
ono country, and the Republicans are his
piophcts. He owes his allcmanco alone to
the General Government, and the Republican
party Is the embodiment of that Government
to his mind. Now what. Is education
going to do to change this? If the means Is
to come from the Federal treasury it will only
Intensify the feeling. The negro citizen
who, like his white neighbor, should look to
the State of his residence for all those local
rights and benefits accruing to a citizen unt\nv
nnp nrf>?pn? form nf irnVPPnniPnt f>f P.on
federate States. will If this measure Is adopted
dc tanght still more to Ignore 1)is allegiance
to the State and to concentrate all his
political love In the General Government and
the Republlean party as the exponent ot the
same. When we read such address as that
delivered by ex-President Hayes recently
puhllshcd In the Xrwx and Courier, or the
many able articles so frequently appearing in
the editorial columns of your paper, one
would he inclined to think that all we needed
to make a first-class citizen of our Brother In
Black was to give him the advantage* of the
very best education that he Is capable of receiving.
Unfortunately, the truth of this
proposition Is not borne out by the facts. We
have In the South many educated negroes;
much better educated than we can possibly
hope to educate the mass of them, even with
the aJd of the Federal Government. With us
of the South the maintenance of Democratic
rule In the State Government Is clearly and
absolutely necessary to the well being, yes to
the very political existence of these States,
and the welfare of all classes, white and
black; and with so obvious a necessity,ho
potent and palpable a truth staring them In
the face, facts which they, the educated negroes,
are fully cogn!7ant of and capable of
appreciating, how many of them, even ot the
most respectable and intelligent among them,
do we find yielding support to or co operating
with the Democratic party, or ill any manner
contributing to the maintenance of good government.
of public or private Integrity and
honesty, or to the elevation of the standard
of religion and morality, even among their
own people?
What Is really needed to make a citizen out
of the negro Is to wean him from the leadingstrings
of Federal politics II he desires education
for himself or his children, lei him
look to his own exertions and thealdofhis
Slate to secure it, like the whites have done
and still do. Teach him. as best we may, that
the Federal Government has atul should
have but very little to do with the private
citizen, as such : that he Is no longer the "Nation's
ward." that the Freedman's Bureau Is
a thing of the past, and that he Is entitled to
and will receive at the hands of the General
Government no more and no less because ho
happens to have been born black.

THE CHARLESTON COTTON MILL.
Labor Secured From Abrond-Charlcston
Girls Will not Take
Hold -- Lighting the factory With
Gat"A Brilliant Sight Prom the
Ilarbor.
AVtfJ and Courier.
A visit to the splendid cotton mill of the
Charleston Manufacturing Company will well
repay the tltne and trouble. Although all the
machinery In the factory Is not yet in operation,
the great bulk of It In both the yarn and
weaving mills is at work, anil a walk through
??/? #>fin Ylflf. full tc% Im*
press tlie visitor wllli Iho perfect system wllii
which tlie great enterprise Is managed. The
payroll now contains 373 employees, the full
number required to operate nil the machinery
being-I.V). Kvery effort has been made to secure
operatives, hut. jus was expected, considerable
dllllnully has been experienced In getUnit
good, steady labor. Of the 373 operatives
now employed about forty are skilled operatives
brought from the North by the superintendent.
.Mr. Andrews, and Mr. W. N. Brown,
the overseer of the spinning room of the
sheeting mill.
Considerable disappointment has been felt
by the management in the scarcity of Charleston
labor suitable for their puiposes, only
about twenty-live per cent, of the operatives
employed being from this city,and many who
hail come and started to learn the business
having left when they had Just begun to be
valuable and capable of earning good wages.
The management say that It Is very evident
that the poorer young women in Charleston
do not desire employment of this kind, as
every effort has been made to give them respectable
and lucrative work, and they persistently
refuse to take it Yet a very lame
number of young women work In the Bagging
factory.
The majority of the operatives now employed
In the cotton mill come from Augusta
and around Ciranlteville In tills Slate. As a
whole they are steady and gofd experienced
hands. Fresh accessions are being made to
the roll every week, and all fears of a failure
to secure labor have been dispelled. It takes
time, however, and patience to get good operatives
from the North, and It is to be regretted
that the hundreds of young girls in this city
who earn a livelihood by sewing and more
mental work will not take ad vantage of the
opportunity of learning a trade which will
support them comfortably.
The hours of work are from 6.31 A. M. lo
6.30 T. M., with an hour's Intermission for
uinner. as inc evenings nave orgnn 10 snorien
and dark comes so much earlier than ti
month or two ago, the lower stories of the
Factory are lighted up about 5.30 P. M., ntid
the upper stories about f. P. M. The building
1h at prevent lighted entirely with gas. and
after dark presenth a very beautiful appearance.
From the lower portion of Sullivan's
Island and from the harbor thi: Factory looks
like a pyramid ol" tire, and is the most striking
object lit the city as viewed from a distance.

Legislation.

"Take for an example the Stnte of South
Carolina : That Commonwealth lias great resources,
and in commerce, agriculture and
manufactures ought to be eminently successful.
But the shipper wants railroads, the
miner wants railroads, and the Railroad law
of that suite Is practically a tmr to any progress.
For bear In mind that modern society
In it? complex organization Is a web of many
threads, anil one of the chief of these, upon
which t he whole fabric largely depends. Is the
railway and transportation system of a Stjite.
In South Carolina the railroad laws should he
entitled: "A Code to prohibit the putting
down of rails, and for the further purpose of
rtilving ofT capital." No man fit to be outside
of an nsylum would to-day Invest money
in a railroad enterprise there, lor none but
Idiots would make a costly plant anywhere
to bo turned over, bag and and baggage, to a
set of Star Chamber commissioners to deal
with ot their will. We might Illustrate this
at length by quotations from the law; hut
the factsare sufficient to Illustrate our meaning,
and having made this plan, we go a stop
further and to the cllinax of our argument.
There Is a'great tide of capital setting towards
this country. The bad condition of affairs
on the Paris Honrse will give them a still
ntr< nger Impulse, and If the South would
profit by the golden opportunity every state
within our Union should shape Its laws to attract
the money flowing out from the Old
World Into the New. The future holds out
brilliant promises; but they are all conditional.
Capital demands safely anil profit, and If
South Carolina or VlglnWwIII not give them
the European or Northern capitalists who
seeks nn Investment will go lo (Seorgla or
Texas. Montana or Colorado, and the present
opportunity will he lost not to return for a

a general influx ot the golden ttde.
Cotton Seed Oil.
Of eotten seed oil, a correspondent of tho
Atlanta constitution myn: "Almost every educated
family In New York city Is to-day using
it for all cooking purposes in place of socalled
olllveoil and lard. It Is found to he a
sweeter and healthier article of food than
lard or ordinary butler, and Is easier to handle.
(estimating that the supposed 7,0.0,000
hales of the present, crop will gin out seed
enough to make 6.000.000 barrels of nil, the
South Is shown to have It In Its power to discard
the dyspeptic pork and lard of tho

upon its own home production of this purely
vegetable oil, now rapidly gaining favor with

ft Is to the faith of Moses that we would Invite
special attention this morning, and'
. parilculatly that exhibition of It which
marked the momentous period Indicated by
; the expression, "when he wis comc to year*."
From Stephen, In his defence before the
I Jewish Kanhedrin, we learn that Moseu was
"full forty years old" when he made Ihe
ichoice recorded in the text. It li said In
Rxodus that It was "In those days when Moses
was grown. In the early uges of the world'
mankind developed more slowly than at
present. I suppose Moses at forty wns what
a yonng man is now at twenty-one. Maturity |
I was not readied as quickly then ; but as a.
compensation life was nroporllonably longer, i
"Moses was a hundred and twenty years old j
when he died;" and even al that advanced
age "his eye was not dim, nor Ills natural force
abated."
"When he he was come to years" denotes
the period when his education was complete,;
when the rule of liis adopt!ve parent was at;
an end, and when In the exercise of Ills own i
free thought he was at liberty to choose hlsj
cureer In life. I always sympathize with a1
young man at this particular Juncture. Whatever
earthly calling he may select, whether;
he decides lo devote Ills energies to trie num.,.
the forum, to agriculture, to politics, or to!
some one of the different handicrafts, It Is of:
the utmost Importance tliut he should resolve!
to he u servant of God. Such a resolution,!
earnestly anil solemnly taken at this crisis,!
will. In all probability, be permanent, will pre-:
serve him from many an evil, render his life
truly useful and hanpy, and procure for him
at last eternal glory. The postponement ofi
such a determination, or the opposite posl-j
tively taken, will. In all likelihood, launch 1
the soul upon a voyage of misery from which
contrary minds shall forbid return, aud
which will end In the howling tempest
and midnight wreck ainld the breakers of
despair.
The choice of Mo^es at this decisive period
is worthy of universal Imitation ; and we
would consider it to-day with the view of
commending It to all, but especially to young
men. !
We regard his choice as an act of faith ; and
as such we would have you ponder, first, the
greatness, and secondly, the reasonableness of
his fatli. j
t. the greatness of nis fattii.
This will appear when we consider what he1
renounced, and then, what he embraced. (
1. He renounced honor. "Refused to be called
the son of Pharaoh's dauchter."
1 tieo.il not rcuearse me siory 01 niimininiun.
You are all familiar with his exposure In an
ark ol bulrushes, nnd his discovery by the
despot's daughter, who, moved with pity,
rescued him from danger, and brought him
up as her own son. In repudiating his adoption,
he resigned the dignity and prospects It
conferred. It was no light thing, humanly
speaking, to be recognized as the adopted son
of tho Egyptian princess. Josephus Informs
us that Pharaoh had no son. and that, consequently
the foundling Moses, had he retained
his position, and conformed to the customs of
the Egyptian court, would have suceedcd to
the throne. Kalth.then. led him to renounce
tho prospect of a regal sceptre?tho sovereignty
of ono of the mightiest empires of
antiquity. Yon ask. Is high honor Incompatible
with piety? Not necessarily Whore
will yon find a purer character than Joseph ?
And yet In Egypt lie was second only to the
King. Where will yon find a man more
scrupulously holy than Daniel? And yot ho
was exalted to the rank of third among the
potentates of Hahylon. Obadlah was "governor
of the house of A hah." Mordcc.il saw no
reason for refusing tho honors of the Persian
monarch. Salutations were sent by the
apostle In "the saints which wero of (,'icsar's
household." In these Instances, earthly dignities
were accepted, honornhle stations main
tallied, without sin. As a rule, however lofty
positions In life cannot bo sought or held
without Injury toconsi lence and disloyalty
to Ood. It was thus In the ease of Mo?-es.
Tho King of Egppt "knew not Joseph"?had
no sympathy with the history and no regard
for the worship of the Isrollies. It was Impossible
to enjoy his favor without compromising
character, and incurring the Divine
displeasure. And hence Moses repudiated his
adoption?'"refused to ho called the son of
Pharaoh's daughter?though by so doing he
forfeited a throne,
Young men. when tempted to enter a path,
however dazzling, which you cannot, follow
without defilement by yotlr soul; when offered
a place, however proud, the maintenance
of which will call down on you the
wrath of God ; think of Moses, and refuse. !
2. He renounced not only honor, but wealth.
"The treasures In Egypt.
This expression s-'ems to sustain the tradition
of the Jewish historian, that Moses was I
heir to the Egyptian throne. Egypt was, at
that time, an absolute monarchy, and the
lives and property of Us citizens were, to a
large extent. in the royal Keeping, it ist
scarcely possible to imgaine the vast opulence
to which ihe Kingdom had obtained at this
early peri hI. The lofty pyramids which
pieces the skies, the rulnH which lie scattered
along the banks of tlit Nile, fragments of
colossal s tunic, obelisks, pa laces, and temples,
these and other re I Ices of ancient magnificence
remain to attest the exceeding Sflen-'
ilor and prosperity or tbe-c times. Moses re-i
nouneed the prospect of all tills wealth. The j
thirst for riches is one of tho most common >
and dominant desire* of the human heart.;
You have seen a piece of ijon drawn to a magnet;
what that magnet Is to Iron, money, orj
Its equivalent, Is to thousands. To gratify I
their greed, to meet the Insatiate demands of;
their covetousness, what have men not done?.
They have crossed oceuns and traversed con-[
tlnents?dared the perils of the wlldernessnnd :
the dangers of the deep. They have bartered j
truth ami honesty, sundered friendships,|
violated covenants, trampled upon tlietender-;
est tics, and committed the blackest crimes j
that stain the chronicles of time. From this
we can estimate how groat the self denial |
which could turn away from the Imposing!
wealth of Kgypt content to renounce It tlij
rather than swerve from the path of duty.
You ask, are riches Incompatible with true
religion? We answere. not of necessity.|
They maybe both amassed and held without
sullying in the east our Christian character.
Job was one of the wealthiest men In the
East. and yet bo was "a perfect man. one that |
feared (iod and eschewed evil.'' Their pur-;
suit, however. Is dangerous, and often fatal.!
"They that will he rich fall Into tempatlon
and a snare, and Into many foolish and hurtful
usts. which drown men In destruction and |
perditlod." Their possession tends to foster]
an undue affection lor them, and trust In them
generating parsimony and self-sufficiency. |
Hence | he exclamation of the Saviour, "How i
hardly shall they that have riches enter intoi
the Kingdom of (iod !" In the case of Moses,
he could not enjoy "the treasures in Egypt-,"
and at tho same time, maintain Inviolate his
religious character. And hence he renounced
them. wllllng|y,and without asigh.
In his renunciation of earthly riches, Moses
Is a model for our times. The passion for
wealth was never more Intenae than at present.
Every kind of InUtility Is being perpetrated
to gratify Its lust?sycophancy, base,
| artifice, fraud, arson, murder. Covetousness
lis the sin of our nation. Young men. if soI
licit oil to enter sorneavenue to weath at the
expense of your religious principle; If en'
gaged in some business which you can rcmler
i more remunerative by being less honest;
' think of Moses, and clioose rattier to be poor.
I 3. Moses renounced not only honor ami
wealth, but pleasure. "The pleasures of sin."
I We ineluue under this the enjoyment which
springs from the ahiiRP of onr bodily sensps
i The wealth and power to which Moses would
have succeeded had he acquiesced in his adioption
would have placed at his command
every sensual Indulgence, We know some-'
tiling from history, not to speak of our own j
I observation, of the seductive influence of uuj
lawful pleasures. For their sake homes have j
been desolated, and Kingdoms overthrown. I
j For their sake tha mighty man has lowered!
i himself lo h level with the brute, and ended
i a once high carecr amid the hissi litis of contempt.
To believers they have been the frequentoeeaslon
of apostasy,Solomon, that sun
in Israel's flrrnafhent. was plunged by th"in
into "outer darkness." In the parable of the
sower, prominent among the thorns which
choked the good seed were "the love of pleasure
and the lust of other things." Think |
then how strong must have been that selfcontrol
which could survey unmoved j
| "the pleasures ot sin," to be enjoyed]
'In Fgynt?pleasures greater than those for;
which Mark Antony sacrificed his all?audi
; which, with all their attendant Ills, constl-!

which do not. transcend the bounds of chastity
land temperance; pleasures In keeping with
our dignity as Immortal beings, and which,
by assisting health and recuperating our
spirits, qualify us for the better performance
of our duties, are not sinful, hut Innocent.;
The pleasures ottered to Moses were of another I
kind?"the pleasures of sin." They were!
: lust, nf flip flesh, the lust of the eves, anil
the pride of life"?gratifications forbidden by I
the law of God. Antl hence, enticing as tliey I
were, lie rejected them. And In rejecting!
ihem he evinced the greatness of Ills faith,
i Young men. yon may be often tempted to.
| indulge In sinful pleasures. Think of Moses, |
and forego them. You may be tempted to I
i the theatre: Its scenic display will no doubt 1
|charm you ; but pollution will ftow Into your
'soul through ttio medium of eye and ear: J
think of Moses, and refuse. You may lie'
tempted to the ball-room; Its mazy whirl)
and voluptuous music will no doubt enchanti
you ; bet low base thoughts will be engender-'
ed. the fruit of which may be a shameful sin : !
think of Moses, anil refuse. You may be j
tempted to the saloon ; the I n toxical I ng bowl
has no doubt Its cheer; hut "wine Isa mocker, I
strong dtlnk Is railing, and whosoever is de-i
celved thereby is not wls.-e" : think of Moses, I
and refuse. You may be tempted to still I
darker scenes; but "tin? bouse" of that woman ;
"Is the way to hell, going down to the chambers
of death": think of Moses, and retuse.
We have considered what Moses renounced ;
' now consider what, be embraced.
! 1. Fellowship Willi a despised people. "The
people of God." '
The Israelites were at that time the <-nly
nation among whom was observed the worship
of the true God. And they were a nation '
| of slaves. "Their lives were made bitter with '
. hard bondage. in mortar, and In brick, and in |
| all manner of scrvlce In the field." All thatj
' they could otrer Moses was a share In the 1)1vlnecovennnt?
the promise made to Abraham j
and to ills seed after him?the promise of.

Inherluwice.and alsoof a Messiah who sprlmr-1,
lug from themselves, should attain to the]
sovereignly of the world,and he toits inhabitants
thCsouroeof Ineligible and endless peace.
These expectations, indeed, especially that of a i
Messiah, only rendered them more obnoxious
to their Egyptian masters, to whom such .
hopes appeared presumptuous and delusive.
And yet with only these hopes to encourago 1
hint, Moses Identified himself with the enslaved
and despised Israelites?by that act I
renouncing all the honor, wealth, and picas- 1

Lazarus In IiIh rags was a bettor companion
tinin the rich man wlio was clothed In purple
and line linen anil fared sumptuously every
day. The obscurest saint Is a child of God,
with the blood-royal of heaven In his spiritual
veins, and Is destined. If faithful, to a
dl'.'nlty and splendor which will make him
the peer of the angels who bow before the
Throne.
2. Moses embraced not only fellowship with
a despised people, but aitffcriiuj. "Choosing
rut her to aufftr affliction with the people ol
God."
The Idea Is. that his union with tho Israelites
was not simply nominal. He Identified
hlm?elf with them, expecting n->t only to endure
the stigma of such a connection, but to
participate In all their sorrows until deliverance
came. Ho did not expect h.s previous
rank to obtain for him exemption rrom the
Ills of bondage. He did not expect, nor did
he wish to retain his princely state whllo his
' kinsmen nc-ordlng to the flesh'1 gro ned by
reason of their burdens. JjIkeHIm of whom
he was an Illustrious type. In stooping. It was
"to be made In all things like unto his brethren."
Reared as lie had been In a pah\ee, accustomed
to luxury and ease, the recipient of
manifold attentions, how wretched must
have seemed to hi 111 th* conditio i of the Israelites.
And yet with all its wretchedness, he
deliberately chose it. How great his faith !
And he had his aUliction. Not In Egypt,
Indeed, but In the wilderness where ho was
compelled to wander as a shepherd In comparative
solitude for forty years. Think you
that to a man like Moses it was no trial to
have to spend the matnrlty of his years In
silence and obscurity.
Young men, emulate his example, and
"choose rather Jo suffer affliction with th?*
peoplo of God." There Is m.ire for you to endure
than tho simple shame of being professed
followers of Christ. That. In these
times, and In this land, may be lightly borne.
There Is the sharp discipline, the tlery ordeal.
by which God testa utnl purlfli-s the faith of
nil who seek His favor. There nrc trial4*
peculiar to His people?trials arranged and
roirnl:ite?I by His wisdom, various and sometimes
poignant In their nnture. though always
benevolent in their design*. Shrink not
from them. They are stepping-stones by
which you may rlsetoa loftier spirituality,
and attain a more glorious reward, "Rejoice
In tribulation." "fount It all Joy when ye
fall Into divers temptations."
We have now considered the cp'ntness ofMoses'
faith?as exhibited In what he renounced,
and also in what he embruced. Wo
will consider:
THE REASONABLENESS OF HIS FAITn.
This will appear from two facts whose recognition
hy Moses was made by the Divine
Npljlt etlli-aclous In the production ami maintenance
of his faith.
First., the transitory nature of (til sinful pleasures.
They nre only ''for a season."
Strange II Is that a fact so obvious should be
so generally overlooked. It may be necessary,
therefore, that we bo at pains to Impress you
with the fugitive character of unsanctlfled
enjoyments. If we would have you approve of
the faith of Moses.
Think, then, of the brevity of that period
during which sinful pleasures are possible.
' What Is yob li>e?"ask:' St. James; and his
answer Is. "It is even a vapor, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away."
How soon old ag? steals upon us, silvering
our hair, palcylng our limbs, and robblnir us
of our strength. Thel'ingwit life Is but a narrow
span. The venerable patriarch, leaning
011 his staft, and recalling the summers he has
seen eoinn and so, lecis inni moy nnvn passeu
like a flowing stream. "How old art thou?"
nsked l'haraoh of the bont and trembling
Jacob. "And Jacob said unto Phraraoh, the
days of the years of my pllirrlmage are a
hundred and thirty years: fern and evil have
the days of the years of my life been." Death
Is coming, and that speedily. With Its comidg
will terminate nil further possibility of
unhallowed Joys. To the soul that has hitherto
regaled itself on the sweets of sin there will
suddenly he spread a blackened wilderness,
scorched by sirocco blasts, and boundless as
Die years of C?od.
Uriel' ns Is the period In which sinful pleasures
may be enjoyed, they are liable to frequent
interruptions, (.'ares attend the footsteps
of each. Life has no path that has not
Its thorns. Often the most coveted positions
are the most unhappy; like as the tallest
summits are the bleakest and most desolate.
A celebrated .Moorish King, the grandeur and
prosperity of whose reign has scarcely been
surpassed, thus wjote a few days before his
death : "Fifty years are elapsed since I ascended
the throne of my ancestors. During
this whole term I bad pleasure, wealth, and
honor so unqualifiedly at my command, that
heaven seemed to have lavished upon me nil
Its choicest blesslne*. I now And myself on
the verg;e of the grave, and endeavoring at
ttils awful moment to recollect how many
days of this long reign I can call happy ones,
I And the whole number taken together does
not exceed fourteen.." And we venture to say
that these fourteen dnys were spent. If not In
holy, at least In Innocent, enjoyments.
The pleasures of sin, even when enjoyed, are
for from satisfying. There Is a tlnee of bitterness
In the tralhered fruit. It Is difficult to so
drug and stupefy conscience that she shall
not awake and glare omlnlouslyon onr Impious
mirth. All! even In the crowded ballroom,
where beauty smiles, and light. Iau*h?
rlnz upon the ear,could we explore the hearts
of the nay assemblage, we should find white
chosts lurking there?remorseful, self-nccusIng
thoughts which, however, often and peremptorily
tliev may bo banished, sternly refuse
to iro. Were our ears ncule enough to
citcli the unsvllaMed utterances of that
throng, we should discover that we liud approached
a sea
Although Its heart Is rich In pearls and ores.
The sea complains upon upon a thousand
shores ;
Sra liter, they moan forever."
Still another consideration Is. that ihe capacity
for sinful pleasures gradually ceases.
"The* world passeth away, nud the itufthereof."
"Dut if a man live many years and rejoice
in thern all; yet let him remember the
days of darkness; for they shall he many."
The you In wishes to know what pleasure Is,
and so he sips greedily of oaoli neotamus
flower; *>ut ere ong he Is satiated and find"
It more and more difficult- to gratify his jaded
tnste; and then there Is presented the spectnele
of a man wort- out before his time?not
changed?O. no; a volcano still, black, scarred
but with Its fires exhausted !
How reasonable then the faith that could
look awav from "the pleasures of Bin" In
Ke>pt?pleasures as ravishing but.as fleeting
as the golden tluts of evening, and like ihein
concealing beneath their splendor the shadows
or coming night.
2. The oth?r fact which envoked the faith
of Moses, and vindicates Its reasonableness,
was the recompense of heaven. It Is said that
"he had respect unto the recompense of the
reward."
With no n?uranee from God of a futurr
and better life, the pleasures of sin, thou-.h
temporary, would have been Invested with
charms too powerful for even Moso? to have
resisted. And here It would be well to remind
ourselves of the folly of discoursing to
men of the vanity of earthly pleasures, unless,
at the same time, we unfold to them those
that are heavenly and enduring. If the vine
can discern no tall trunk on which to uplift
Its dependent form, what can It do but grovel
in the dust ? Moses had the promise made to
Abraham and his seeed after him of :h?' land
Onnaan. That this promise was not understood
In a temporal sense only Is evident from
St. Paul. "By fti'th Abraham when he was
called to go out Into a place which he should
after receive for an Inheritance, obeyed ; and
he went out, not knowing whither he went,
jjy faith he sojourned in the land of promise
as In a stratige country, d'velllng In tabernacles
with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with
him of the same promise; for he looked for
a city whieh hath foundation*, whose builder and
maker it find." Tlie reward, men. anticipated
by Mo?es wns n homo In hi'nven. The
promise whose fulfillment he expected was
eternal lire In glory. Was not his then a
reasonable faith? Great as was the self-denial
It Involved, extendlne even to the renunciation
of an empire. viewed In relation
to the promise of Jehovah?a promise which
Ho had sworn hy Hlm?elf to perform?It commends
Itself as the truest wisdom. How
grander far to tie a Klmr and prlestt unto God
forever than simply Klnz of Kzypt! How
better fur to drink of everlasting pleasures,
rivers that never dry, than to spend n lifetime
dipping Into cisterns, broken cisterns, that
can hold no water! Yes. the faith of Moses
was a reasonable faith: for he had In prospect
a crown of life that fadeth not away, and
the smile of God which Is the soul's essential
peace; and no wonder that the yoke of
bondage lost Its weight, and the desert Its
tolltude. and reproach Its stint;; for these
troubles were but momentary, and to be succeeded
by a day of Interminable Joy, widenlngand
brightening with the bliss of God.
Methlnks a thrill of peculiar sympathy
must have vibrated the soul of St Paul when
he penned the words of our text. There Is a
striking similarity between hlmselfand Mo>-es.
He Is, in fact, the Moses of the new dlspensailon.
It was a brilliant prospect, considered
from a numan stand-point, which ho renonnccd
lor Christ. As a man he wns preeminently
nlflcd. He possessed all the elements
necessary to render him amluhtyand
successful leader. At the time of his conversion,
he was, perhaps, the most marked
man In Judea. find he so willed, his name
might have none down to posterity emblazoned
with all that men call glory. "Rut what
tilings were gain tohlm, those he counted loss
for Christ." His choice and highest ambition
was that he might "know ("lii'lsf, and the
power of his resurrect loll, and the fellowship
of his sufferings, helng made conformable
unto His death, ir by any means no tnigtu attiiin
unto the resurrection of the dead."
My Iriends. young and old, have faith In
God. Great as may be the trials to which It
calls you, demanding of you the surrender of
cherished pleasures. the subjugation of evil
appetites, laying upon yqu the reprotich of
(jurist and the burden of Ills cross : only exercise
It. and In the end It shall be found to
have been a reasonable faith.
(), the "far more cxceedlnc and eternal
weight of glory" which awlts the rlirhteons !
"I reckon,"says St. Paul, "thatthe sutrerlngs
ot this present time nre not worthy to tie
compared with the glory which shall be revealed
In u?." Think you that now. as crowned
and clothed In white, Moses beholds the
King In his beauty and the land that is very
farofT?the full blaze of that, glory whose outskirts
only he was permitted to see In the
cleft of the rock at. iloreb?think you he regrets
his choice ! Nor will you, my brethren,
when the tolls of the Christian llle are past,
the voyage ended, and rest reached.
