The groves of walnut trees set out several i years ago near Greenwood by County Treasurer, J. it. Blake, are In a flourishing ootid!- I lion. The waluul tree makes a line shade, and Is the more desirable because it sheds all its leaves at once, thereby letting iu, at the I proper lime 01 the year, the welcome sunshine ; besides Its fruit Is valuable. The Farmers' Association mot at Ureeuwood last Saturday. I Beiilah church, uear Sinlthvllle, will be dedicated the second Sunday iu August. Uev. I).

In many < Instances rows are ruuning up and down the hillsides tusl?ad ol across litem. At other 1 places valuable lauds are washiug away because a border of grass Is not allowed to grow * next to roads near which rows terminate. Men may have a legal right to allow their lands to wash away, but we are luily convinced that they have not a moral right to allow such wholesale injury to that which is J some uay tooecomeiue property 01 uuumt-i. < Prof. J. Tlioruwell Boozer, a graduate of i the Citadel Academy at Charleston, and a ] nephew of Dr. W. L. Anderson of Ninety- , Six, was drowned on the 14th lust., In Texas while bathing.

Editor Press and itauuer : Allow rue to correct the very strange misapprehension expressed In your ediloriul of last week under the head of "Greenwood's Pledge." assuming that her promise to erect the public building of the new county, as published in your columns, was intended by ?>ar uu u loiful nhltcruTiftn If. ( nnlii not. Iip fairly cousirued to be any thing more than a public declaration or promise of her iutenUon in the premises, aud surely you did unl ueed the "opinion of men learned in the law" to miorm you that It whs not a bond or mortgage. If you did, the Legislature to whom the matter will be referred will need Do such aid, Greenwood's legal obligation will exist in the lorm of bonds Issued by authority of the Legislature. A bill for thut purpose passed the bouse last fall when the people were then endeavoring to establish home rule for themselves, and an identical bill will be introduced at the next session. These bonds will oe Issued for $25,0(J0, on a baslsof nearly a million of dollars worth ol property, every dime of which will be bound for their redemption by the mostsolemu safeguards of the law. This sum will be more than ample to build as good. If not better public buildings than those at Abbeville. The petltlou aud "pledge" of Greenwood as published In the Press and Manner, the contents of which you ought to kuow, asks tba'. the new county be formed with the county seat at Greenwood, oil the express condition that Greenwood pays all expenses of public buildings, without cost to other citizens ol the new county, and the bill therelor will so provide. II Green wood does uot do this, there will be no new count)'. Vour editorial Is susceptible of one of two constructions; eiuier mat tne signers 01 tue declaration published In your paper, who would like to manage their own a Hairs without dictation from outsiders, and who represent at least So(X).0J0 worth of property, are grossly Ignorant of the first principles of business: or, that tliey are unreliable, unworthy of coulldence. and are seekiug to perpetrate a fraud on the public. Wnlch aria of of the dilemma do you lake? We wish to kuow. Greenwood Is the largest and wealthiest town iu Abbeville County, and is rapidly and steadily growing Iu population aud wealth. CM one thing you maybe sure; she Is Iu this fight to stay, and if defeated by Abbeville's methods as before, she will come again and again, till her opponents shall have lalleu at her gates exhausted. Greenwood. <'Iih|>iiihii'm School History of South CitroliiKi. It has been suggested that the State Board ol Kxamlners did a good work lor the children ot the State when they adopted Chaptuau't School History as the text book lor use iu our commou schools. It is written in easy and untmated style aud the details ol History are enlivened by an occasional Kiory to attract and hold llie attention of the child and also to impress the truths of history. It Is fu II and clear and the lads are well arranged. It la llie opinion of competent teachers that the book should be used in every school in the State. The book Is meeting a generous reception. It Is published by Kverett, Waildey Co., Richmond, Va., and retails for7;>ceuis. l'rof. Wallace of the Columbia Female College, says ol the book alter careful examination : "The author has doue his work well,and the publishers have added to the attractiveness of the book by the excellent manuer in which they bavebound It. The typography Is noticeably good?a thlug too much neglected lu these days of close competition and cheap llteratii -e, by which the eyes of the readers suiter Mild oculists and eyeglass dealers prosper. "While intended as a text-book lor children at school, this history hss a vast deal of Informal Ion lor persons of mature years, and It ought to be in the house of every citlzeu of South Carolina. The Slate Hoard of Education has done well In adopting It as a textbook in the public schools, lor from uo oilier source can the children learn so much ol the j history ol their own State." A. It. P.

All who read the papers know tbatN. o. Pyles Is Irom Green wood anil McDonald Furiimn from Privateer. However much we may differ with the editor In some of his views, we can but admire and tnu*t commend his willingness to publish whatever is respectfully said in opposition to his editorial utterances. A GEORGIA PROPHECY. During the contest, in the Atlanta dist rict, between Col. Candler and Hon. L. F. Livingston for Congress, we were a close reader of the .Journal, Col. Candlers organ. From Its, incessant and unrelenting warfare on Mr. Livingston. we predicted ihat gentleman's reelection. Our prediction came true by a large 1/vell *r 'Plilu np<inliot in If nnwloiicro Ic 00. quired only by a study of our own politics. Mrs George Brlg?S,of Greenville, has been on a trip to her parents Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Reynolds. Miss McDonald, of Union, is with her sister Mrs. Merrill. Miss Louise Fleming has returned from an extended trip to Greenville. Prof. Willis will begin a class in vocal music In a few days. Young Mr. Thompson who came home sick a few weeks ago is still critically 111 with hemoragic fever. Daughters have been born to all of our relatives hoard from during the week ending July 2ist. GEORGIA POLITICS. IIow different the Palmetto campaign between Butler and Tillman to that now he waged in the Blue Gras* state between Breckinridge and Settle They?like emotional converts In an experience meeting?confess their own short comings. Over here each caudid.ite makes it his business to show uo his opponent's unsavory record,while defendhis own by atlldavlt or "you are another" and otl.en in the midst of dashing guns. We are rather impressed with the Kentucklans way. D is less dangerous to by-standers and more effective In vote-making. It Is said that Mr. Settle recently melted his audience to tears by a pathetic story of how cards and whiskey had robbed him of his home, and left him a physical and financial wreck, while Mr. Breckinridge received many beautiful boquets, after confessing Uis own disgrace. Miss Kelly, of Baltimore, Is with her sister Mrs. A. J. Bell, Master Charlie Carr, too carried off some prizes at the Anderson tourney. RORIIKKY AND BUSH-W HACKING. On Tuesday night of last week the New lorn siore wrk uroKeu iiiia? hiiu u pinioi wmi si few oilier minor articles only were taken. On the evening?Wednesday?h Mr. Mnv Irom Kdgetield, who had sold a lot of country produce here that day, was fired into while passing the copsejust this side the Hootch Cross. Five shots were fired, only one taking effect, It having passed through the fleshy part of the thigh. Mr. May returned the fire of his would tie assassin?but without effect?whom he says he will recognize, having been close to hlfu. He spent the night with Capt. Flemrning, who dressed his wound, and went on home next morning. Ou Thursday evening a negro, Amos Hurst, was arrested and lodged in Jail as the party who broke Into the store, the pistol was found in iiis possession und there is hardly a doubt but that he Is the negro who attacked Mr. May. But little Is known of him here, being a stranger, but he was noticed following Mr. May around town Wednesday. On last Wednesday, ex-postmaster Tolbert of Nluety-SIx, and C. E. Stuart colored of this place, ran xn excursion to Atlanta, Tolbert furnished the money, Stuart the experience. 11 did not pan out, and Tolbert had Stuart arrested for having both?the money and the experience. It develops that some enterprising printers of this place printed some fac <Imile tickets ami sold them at reduced prices. These bo^us tickets cuused the shortage. A PRRTINENT QUESTION. I am very curious to know what will finally tiecome a recommendation for office In South Ltarollu*. Our politics have already readied Hint point when one's presence and participation in the Hamburg riot. Is the sin-oua-non to the highest office within the gift ol the people. Mr. \V. A. Riley was again successful In the Anderson wheel con test, having carried off sne of the first prizes. Miss Florence III ley has been on a visit to frinntls in Anderson. We were pleased to see Mr. J. D. Carwlle in :>ur sanctum or hospital us you may be pleased to call it. LKTTKK TO SHERRIKK NANCE. An open letter to Sheriff Nance: Dear Sir : I heard you was In town the other day hut sou Id not get out to shake hands with you. Others may do as the please, as far me I expect to vote if at all lor some antl-uew county candidates. Miss Eliza and Miss Eula Dunn, of Donalds, ijave their relatives, Airs. W. H. Mays and Mrs. A.

The latest arrival on Byrd street is at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Noris?a son. The friends of Col. W.G. Rice sympathize with him In his recent misfortune. A very eujoyable Sunday school picnic was had at Trinity chucrh Saturday, an interesting program was carried out Including an address by Mr. Rr O. McLees. Mrs. H.G. Hartzng Is off for Hendersonvllle. Mrs. Counts and her cousin Miss Eaves, of Hamburg, is on ajrlp to Mrs. Counts parents Mr. and Mrs. Hartzog. In every contest all parties must needs be hopeful, else there would be no "light to the finish." THEIR OWN MEDICINE. Nothing gives us more pleasure than to see Larry Gant abusing Reformers, and Reformer* howling down Cal. Cuugbman. Its their own medicine. Foster Cromer can boast of the finest colt in the county. POLITICAL DKATH. Quite a number of candidates were In town Saturday, before the Alilauce and Farmer's meetings. None of them pay the conservatives any regards. True they are all polite and pleasant euough to the writer presumably because of his alillctlon, but I suppose it would mean political death, for any or them to be caught hobnobllng with a healthy,robust antl unless it was his brother-in-law or some very near relative. Governor Tillman is a bigger thing than the consolidated, '-Alliance demands" and prohibition, else the one would be enforced, the other demanded. NEWSPAPKK STOCK COMPANY. Prof. 11. B.

MOT US SKK THK NKW COUNTY I.AW. >> 111IC A'A I 14* H I CI 1 1(1, 111 AUUCVIIir, was hi Donalds a tew days ago he mid a group of anti-new county adherents were discussing the situation. One of tliern assailed "Greenwood's Pledge" sayiug against it, in substance what appeared wdilorially In llie la?t issue of Press mid Banner, lo which Mr. Perrln? who be il remembered is opposed lo the (jreeiiwood county?replied, "My friend you are mistaken ; those Greenwood people are desperately in earnest. 1 know tliein personally ; I hey are honorable men, who meau what they say and will do what they promise." lbr which in benall of Greenwood I say: Thanks Mr. Perriti, a generous son of a noble sire you are. Mr. Perrin knows, and so does the editor oi the Press and IJannor, thai the names affixed to "(ireu wood's pledge" to erect the buildings if'given the new county are synonims of wealth, veracity, honesty and integrity. These are they who have never failed In any undertaking. They are the men who, by presenting a solid and nulled frout, have built three railroads In the lace of the strongest opposition?a cotton mill with a capital ol $1U0,(JU<>, and giving proJitable employment lo several hundred good and holiest yeomen, an oil ini'l worth (-10,000, established two banks Willi a capital stock of Sl.jO,1100, two mercantile tirms alone worth Sioo.ootj, besides many smaller ones. Store properly to the amount of ?200,000, and last but not least have established a graded school where the poor of the town can receive an education without cost; 111 short they have made Greenwood what it Is today, the leading, livest, largest, most liberal, und united town In the county whose example lor unselfish,pluck aud honest enterprise is worthy of emulation, and to charge, even by inuendo, that they would, for the niggardly sum of 8*25,000, seek prestage by deception or any other dishonorable means, Is slanderous hk It Is l'alse?an Insult to their manhood. and should be beneath the dignity of honorable gentlemen to make as It la unworthy of belief by all fair-minded men. Again, none know better than those who seek to discount "Greenwood's Pledge" that a bill requiring and giving power to Greenwood to erect the public bulldlnge, 1b a part of the one creating ihe new county and they are Inseparable. With this we dismiss the new county discussion, unless another occasion arises for the refutation of an unjust imputation. s. rtnrr vrmrr n/r a "nrt uuumi mnro, Important Xollce to I<nn?l Ownm. Being now engaged in making an elaborate survey of Abbeville county from which several thousand maps are to be published showing every stream, road, public building, dwelling house, and the owners name thereof, together with all boundary lines and areas of plantations within the county, we wish it to be known to the public that where no recent survey of lands have been made, we shall furnish a competent engineer to all parties Interested at the small charge of SS per day. These maps will be prluted in colors and will be five feet square. The titles will be translated in French and Oermau and will be sent to all countries and emigrant bureaus. All lands will find the same prominence. The map on heavy roll paper will sell for &'> each, and several hundred copies have beeu engaged. BUL.1-.OCK A (J HI Kit, (.'ivll Englners, Abbeville, H. C.

I am about to give to boy* and young men an account of one of the keys which will never fail if the one using is of good moral character. It is this: Never take a second step until you have mastered the first, 1 shall try to make this seem important by explaining its operation. Take an example from arithmetic. Every well arranged arithmetic proceeds from one step to another. First, you learn the names and meanings of the figures; then to add them; next you subtract; afterward you multiply, and fienally you are taught to divide. Can one perform a sum in addition who does not kuow the names and values of figures? C'au any one multiply 339 by 520 who cannot add ? Can anyone do a sum in long division who caunot subtract? But he who loams these in their order can do any of them at any time. The more perfectly a thing is learnlnnnnnd n/%nHAnf lir 4Ka *> >/ ? CU, UUIC33 ical lieu WUiirubij J lliU lllUJt certain one is to fall into serious error. Suppose one bad learned the multiplcatiou table correctly except that he .supposed five times five is twentyseven. He might then take a situation to calculate prices and make change. He might do his work splendidly for a while, but the momeut five times five would come in he would be wrong, and that would throw him outin every part of his work ; for if he had multiplied five by five and calledIt twentyseven, and had occasion to multiply that by seven, he would have fourteen too much, and so in any addition. Apply this to recollection and understanding. We remember by attaching what we are learning to what we already know ; but if we are wrong, we have spoiled even our memory of something new, and reasoning is worthless. You propose to learn a trade ; but if you take a second step without properly perfomiug the first, you will be entangled.

Better wait six days before the second step than to try to take it before the first is understood. It took me a long while to learn this. I had an impatient mind that saw iuto things more or less clearly anywhere, and I depended upon this. One day 1 discovered that in the absence of a book I could do nothing with a certain problem in algebra. When I turn to the book I found to my sorrow that I had to begin many pages batfk of the one upon which ibis problem was explained, and slowly approach, re-studying what I had only glanced at before in order to comprehend.

(.Sunday School Times.) Truths most apparent are oflen truths most neglected. It has been long a proverb in many languages that more people die from over-feeding than from starvation, and Shakespeare reiterates it Furthermore, almost any one ought to see the truth of it. It ought to be even more evident that more good results are prevented, more good causes defeated, by overdoing, than by the meanest neglect of them.

The Epworth Herald this week pub lishes the opinion of IS prominent members of the Northern Methodist Church in regard to the movement known as "The Kpworth Guards."

I hereby announce myseif for re-election to Congress trom ttie Third Congressional District, subject to the Democratic primary to be be held August 28tb. I take this opportunity to say to my constituents Id the Third District that I have three bills, favorably reported from the various committees and now pending on the House Calendar, which demand my presence and attention until an opportunity is afforded for consideration In the House.

I know that It is one of the demands of the Reform movement that candidates for offices appear before the people at the regular campaign meetings, and lam perfectly willing at this time, If I knew It to be the desire of my constituents to attend the various meetings In the Third District; but feeling that duty calls me here, and that the Interests of my constituents are involved lu the pending legislation. and knowing that my record Is before the people, and hoping that Congress may adjourn early In Augnst, I have, for the present, decided to remain here and attend to duty and leave my re-election or defeat In the hands of the voters of the Third District.

Absence from church has become I chronic with many Christians in these I days. A heavy cloud, a slight iudis' position, call of a friend, any tritie is enough to keep lhem from the sanci tuary.

The public service is a necessity j to a vigorous spiritual life. Private I meditation and prayer are very good, j but they can never meet all the needs of the sou).

It is a sufficient condemnation of absenting one's self from church that i almost invariably when it is done a j leakage is done in the heart. Kxperi ence grows cold and 1 ifeless. Zeal sufj fers a paralysis; the so ntr of the heart i dies down to a moan ; the bowers of i piety wither; aspirations cease; critii cistn and fault-finding begin ; the religions force ebbs away; the individj ual becomes a drone in the Lord's beehive. * l'rayer is the peace of our spirit, i ?Jeremy Taylor.

Are women losing anything of their vomanliuess by their higher intellectlal development anil by their eompetiiou with men in the professions? \lice CJorreu, iu Scribner's Magazine, jints a fear that it is ao. The educaion and professionalism produce adnirable results iu their way, but there s a luck of "the womanfy ouality." \meriean physicians believe the strain )f the higher education unfits women 0 fulfill adequately the essential funcions of motherhood, and the restlessiess, the desire for personal freedom, nstilled in women by all the fresh dejartures taken by their sex, leads to 1 isincli nation to assume the graver acrilices of marriage, the tendency to ook upon its deeper significance as a iross. Women will lose, and the race vill lose, if the specialization of the ex is sacrificed to its mental culture. No man can know the meaning of lappiness while doing anything that i-ill keep Christ out of his heart.
