Three more to bless ns to the end ;

Soon a Good Man is Forgotten
by Their Laxness in Hon
oring bis Memory.
AUGUSTA, GA, April 9.-When
the .Hte Gov. Stephens died a move
ment was put on foot to purchase
Liberty Hall, in which the dead
statesman had spent his life, and erect
upon the ground a monument to his
memory. After most strenuous ef
forts the amount collected thus far
is only $371.95. So it is very likely
the project will have to be abandon
ed. What makes this apathy to
ward the collection of money for such
a monument more remarkable is the
fact that hundreds of young men^in
Georgia owe all they have to the late
Governor's generosity during his life.
.For the last forty years Mr. Stephens
never had less than ten beneficiaries
receiving education for which he fur
nished the whole means. These men
have gone out into the world, entered
.the trade of law, many of them
amassed fortunes; vb ile all of them
are well to do. Notwithstanding ail, -
this, when a modest sum is asked:to
j comgiemo^ate tbe name_of their ben
efactor most niggardly replies are ,
received. This sbo? e how much grat
itude-this people have. The body ol
the late Governor, which yet reposes
in Atlanta, will be removed to Craw
fordsville in a few weeks, where it
will be placed beside that of his
mother, whom he never saw. Mr.
Stephens u?ed to tell that when a
boy it was his wont to go to the grave
of his mother, and, [lying upon his
back the.e, he would look up into the
passing clouds and endeavor to catch
a glimpse of his mother's face there
"Now he is to repose by her forever.
\ Coffin, a shroud, a Hearse.
How a Greenville Nan bas Arranged
for his own Funeral.
From time to time reference has
been made to the calmness and fore
sight which R. P. Roddy, of this city,
has exhibited in making preparation
for a decent and respectable funeral
and burial place. He is determined
that his remains shall have nothing
but a respectable and becoming inter
ment and that his grave shall not be
a simple, barreo mound of clay. The
attention which he has already be
stowed upon the lot in which hie re
mains are to rest, has been described
Now there is nothing more to be
done. His coffin, his shroud and his
hearse are now secured and arrange
mente for a very nice funeral are
completed. Mr. Roddy has been ne
gotiating for some time with L. R
Cline, the well known undertaker,
for an outfit for a house of clay. Mr.
the^rice of a cof?n.
Mr. Cline told him that he could give
him "a nice one" for fifty dollars.
Mr. Roddy said that";was higher than
he wished to pay. A fifteen dollar
one was enggested, but Mr. Roddy
still hesitated. He then inquired the
price cf a shroud, and was informed
that they ranged from five to ten dol
lars. Mr. Roddy chose the five dol
lar one. Then the Lire of the hearse
was discussed. _Mr. Cline named
ten dollars. Finally Mr. Roddy in
dicated that he would pay thirty
dollars for the funeral outfit--fifteen
for the coffin, five for the shroud and
ten for the;hearse hire. Meisrs. Ciine
and Roddy went into a store on
Main street to draw up the agree
ment and clcse the bargain. But Mr
Roddy stiil thought that his funeral
expenses were too steep. He sug
gested a cheaper coffin-a five dollar
ene. The amendment was accepted
and the sum waa reduced to twenty
dollars. Then Mr. Roddy wanted
ten mote dollars deducted, but he
could "scale" the rates no lower and
he therefore handed over the twenty
dollars. Mr. Cline gave his receipt
and the trade was perfected. Mr.
Roddy was anxious to have Mr.
Cline's services, wishing no one else
to do his undertaking.-Greenville

Assassinationa are of not nnfreqaent

An ex Governor of the State, General
Cardonas, who has been prominent in
politics for many years and figured in
mers than one revolution, has lost no
less than nineteen of his immediate
family l y the red hand *of murder.
Tbe other day an attempt was made
tofessaaeinate him, his carriage being
waylaid by masked men .as it was re
turning to his ranch about three
miles from town. It happened that
the general had remained at home
that day, and only his nephew, wife
and sis ?er w^re in the carriage. The
nephew was killed in his stead, and
also the coachman, one of the shots
grazing the sister's cheek. The horses
were cut loose and the terror-stricken
women ordered to walk home as fast
as their feet could carry them, which
command it is needless to say they
obeyed, leaving their dead in the dus
ty road. This being merely a " po
litical disturbance" it attracted no
particular attention, and the assas
sins are still at large. Nobody thinks
of riding outside of city limits, or,
indeed, within them after night-fall>
without being well armed and at
tended. Betsey and I, with two oth
er ladies, were invited to spend ye??
terday at a hacienda five miles away.
The e egant barouche, drawn by B?X
clipped mules, which was sent for our
conveyance, contained four shining
pistols in its inside pockets, for the
use of the ladies in case of emergency*
The coachman and footman. were
equipped Vith two revolvers and a
knile apiece, and two outriders ac
companied us, each with gnn, sword
and pistols fastened to his saddle.
But soon this was not considered suf
ficient, and two gentlemen on horse
back, euch with his armed and mount

the implements of warfare, as we

?s an instance of how little
regard the'government has for life,
let me tell you a pitiful Btory : A
child was missing from a mining set
tiement at the edge ol Zacatecas, and
as weeks went by bringing no trace
ct him, the distracted parents imag
ined he had been kidnapped. There
upon some thirty persons, most of
them laboring men about the mines,
were taken out and shot on the merest
euspicion that they might know about
the lost boy ! About three months
afterward, somebody happened to
look down into a deep hollow (proba
bly an abandoned prospect hole) not
many yards from the father's house,
and discovered something therein
which txcited his curiosity. Closer
investigation revealed a email skele

fallen in during one of the epileptic
fits, to which he was futject, and had
starved to death within sight of
home. I happered to be present
when the little mouldy jacket and
muddy shoes were brought up, amid a

ATLANTA, GA.., April 12.-Maria
Roues, an aged negress from Liberia,
was cared for at the city prison last
night. She left Alabama in 1878,
with a party of seventy-six negroep,
for Liberia. - Most of them died with
fever, while only two have been able
to get back to Am3rica. Only ten of
the party survived in Liberia. For
six years the old woman has been
trying to save money to get back io
Alabama. Negroes over there, she
says, are not paid over three dollars
a month for work. She says they
can hardly work for the jigger flea,
an insect which burrows down under
the skin of the feet, lives and breeds
there, and literally eats the feet up.
She said many had their feet cut cn,
as the fleas cannot be moved when
once they burrow under the skin,
making horrible sores. She had saved
fifty-six dollars in B?X years, which
paid her paesage to New York, leav

The New Baptist Church at Lees
LEESVILLE, 8. C.. April 4.-On last
fourth Sunday the first regular ser
vice was held in our new bnt incom>
plete church house. Although the
morning was unfavorable we had a
good congregation. We shall never
forget the brotherly kindness of Revs
J. E. and Pierce Watson, the pastors?
and members of the Methodist church
during th2 months we worshiped.in
their house. About three fourths of
our church remain unceiled owing to
our inability to raise funds with which
to complete it. A debt of about two
hnndred dollars has been created in
bringing the work up to where it
now rests. Without the further aid
of brethren, sisters and, friends, thor
ough completion will be considerably
delayed. This is not desirable. We
want our house complete and fur
nished. Just a small amount frcm
the hands of the Lord's willing work
ers will do this.
At the risk of incurring their dis.'

From Southern Christian Advocate.
Mr. Editor :? Your denunciation of
Sanator Butler's ground of opposition
to the Blair Educational Bill gave oc
casion for equal surprise and regret
to some of your readers. We can
not Eee " betrayal of trust" in bis
refusal to surrender the educational
(i. e., social) interest of the mass of
the people of the United States into
the hands' of the party controlling
the U. S. Government. There has
been repeated evidence since the days
of negro legislation, forced upon
South Carolina by U. S. bayonets, aa
to what the .result of such a surren
der might l^e j and for one, I syrajpa
tbize with the sentiment that the su
preme question in debate was not so
much one of constitutional right or
policy, as of self-protection,
Tue bitter sectional spirit illustrat
ed by Senator Sherman, who would
not trust the South to administer the
fund provided by this bill, the intro
duction of amendment after amend
ment fixing the distribution of the
fund with the U. S. Government, and
the fear lest these conditions should
be overlooked by men of both parties
in their anxiety to secure the money,
presented the whole matter in a new
light. The humanity of North and
South was invoked to break down
space enough in the walls of constitu
tional defence for the admission of
this votive offering to Minerva. Who
could say what use would be made
Our Senator merits grateful com
mendation for rising high enough to
look over the immediate golden ad
vantage, to the cost of enjoying it.
The new standard time ol the rail
ways has come already into almost
universal use. Returns made to the
secretary of the Time Convention
show that of the one hundred princi
pal cities of the country, exclusive of
the cities on the Pacific coast, seven
ty-eight have adopted railway stand
ard time as their official local time.
The Pacific lines, including the Un
ion and Central Pacifies, ar? to adopt
the standard time when their spring
schedules go into effect,- and it is ex
pected that the entire Pacific coast
will then come'iuto the system. It
has been a quiet revolution, but much
more thorough than tho most san
guine friends of the reform expected
within so brief a time, and it is easy
to see now that the towns still adher
ing to the old order of things will
inevitably be forced into the new
system before long. Excepting in
Ohio, where six sities, and in Penn
sylvania, where three cities still main
tain their old local time, there are not
more than two cities east of the
Rocky Mountains where local time
different from the railway standard
is now used.

A Case In a New York Hospital-How
It Is Caused and How lt May Be
: NEW YORK, April 10.-Antonio
Pisino, the young Italian who wss
taken to Bellevue Hospital Monday
night suffering from what was found
to be trichinosis, is recovering.
'' The trichinae," said Dr. Biggr,
who has charge of the patient, " a>e
becoming encysted and as soon as that
proces?is over they will not be capa
ble of doing any further harm."
" How does a man get trichinosis?"
the reporter asked.
* From eating raw pork. Of couroe
the pork most contain trichina, bnt
it is just as essential that the meat
should be raw, for if the meat were
proper y cooked the trichinae would
- " But how does the trichina} get
into the pork in the first place?"
" From the hogs eating the raw
flesh of other animals, particularly
the entrails. The process is like this.
The hog devours the flesh of an ani
mal containing the eggs or cysts of
trichina?. When these embryos get
into the stomach the process of diges
tion dissolves the cysts and the living
trichina; are set free."
Dr. Biggs showed the repoiter a
trichinae that had been removed from
Pi s in o's arm, through the microscope.
The worm looked to be a little more
than an inch long and was curled up
like the lelter "a."
"The actual length of the trichinae,'
said Dr. Bigge, " is about one twenty
eighth an inch, and its diameter one
six-hundred>b of an inch. We re
moved from Pisino's arm a piece bf
muscle about as large as a small pea
I calculate that it contained from
400 to 500 trichina. Professor Vir

of ham infected with trichino'tbere
were no less than 30,000,000 of the

perhaps better way is to have all pork

Senator Butler made one good
point in his speech in opposition to
the Blair bill. Referring to the ns
tonishing increase of cotton manu
factures in the South, Geu. Butler
cited the fact that during the past
three years, twenty five millions of
dollars have been expended for cotton
machinery, and that seven million*
and a half of this amount was the ad
! ditional cost causc-d by protective da?
j ties. Let the General Government,

j ability of the State to support her
j schools, and the result will be found
far more profitable and acceptable
than direct appropriations for educa
