They had called him everything else, and now comes the Waycross, Ga., Herald and calls him Joe: Here is what the Herald says: "Joe Tillman, the invincible gov ernor of South Carolina, holds an individual patent on cocktails in his State." Wo are glad to see that many of our farmers are taking advantage of this fine weather to cut and cure aBupply of hay for winter. The necessity for curing hay is all the greater on account of the almost total loss of fodder by the big storm. \ We call the attention ? of our readers to the elaborate advertise ment of Alvin Hart & Co. in this issue. of the ADVERTISER.

The pluttercrat wears standing ip collar. The ramracker wears a sitting lown collar or no collar at all. Dives was a pluttorcrat and anded in the soup. Lazaras was a rr.mracker and iostle8 in Abrahams bosom. This is all we know about plut ocrats.-ED. ADVERTISER. The name Europe signifies "a ?ountry of white complexion," and irises from the fact that its in habitants are of a lighter com plexion than those of Asia or Africa. Asia signifies "between or in tho middle," the ancient geogra phers imagining that it lay between Europe and Africa. Africa signifies 'the land of corn it was celebrat ed for its abundance of corn, and the Romans and other people used to import grain extensively from that continent. : Corn Bread No Go In Germany. Scientific American. - Notwithstanding the recent culi nary efforts of a patriotic American to educate the* German up to an appreciation of the savory and un tritious.properties of Indian meal, Dr. Eugene Sell, of the Imperial Health Department, has reported to the Prussian government that this substance is not a wholesome article of diet, and is unsuited for general consumption. The Medical Record thinks if Dr. Sell could but examine some of our stalwart mountaineers in West Virginia and Kentucky, and see how they thrive on hog ond hominy, he might be led to distrust the ac curacy of his laboratory experi ments.

C. Sept. 23.- John nie Matthews, son of Mr. Ben Matthews, while hauling cotton to the gin of Mr. J. C. Lynch, met with a teirible death yesterday. The young fellow was hauling a heavy load of cotton and came to a place in the road where there is a Bteep hill with one sido ^nucli higher than the other.

Young Matthews was only thirteen years old and his death caused a profound sensation in the neigh borhood. TO our Country Friends. The Florence Re form-Advance gives the following good advice to tamers anent the meat question : . "Why do you keep coming to town always to buy meat. Do you raise any hogs in your neighbor hood? Here is a plan to get your meat cheap : Let one hog be killed every week ; let your neighbors go in on shares, each taking a fourth, and the by then time your hogs be gin to diminish, and the cold weather sets in, the meat market will take a tumble, and when, it does, it will fall with a mijhty crash. The idea of a farmer giving two pounds of cotton for one pound of meat. Save, your cottoD, kill your own hogs, and by the latter part of next October, it would not surprise us to seo ono pound of cotton bringing two pounds of meat. We have heard some farmers say that it was cheaper to buy meat than raise it. Where art thou now would-be farmer? Lazy farmers are always apt to find many excuses. Try this plan, swap with your neighbors, they are doing the same in the cities. Divide your meat, try by every means to do without it until the price comes within your reach. Watterson on Cleveland. Louisville Cuorier Journal. A man as incapable of receiving impressions as of returning warmth, and sensible of criticism only to the point of resenting it,the President sits in the White House like a wooden image made to bo worshipped, aud not to be loved. To the weaker members of his cabinet he/ has imparted his dull sufficiency and cold stolidity. The most servile as well as the sin cerest form of flattery is imitation, and the beggars on horseback whom Cleveland, seeking to dis cover a new .political planet and to people it with creatures of his own, brought into being and being mounted, have caught the trick of the chief, and are equally indus tious and successful in neglecting great for little things. They, too, take more joy in one republican who has repeated and turned mug wump than in ninety and nine democrats who have never gone astray. A near and old friend of his said to me not long ago: ''Of all the arid natures I ever en countered, ho is the most arid. He sympathizes with nobody, and in I the most serious affairs trusts wholly and solely to fortune or I caprice." Penelope-'.'Did you ever have a horse run away with you? Pauline-'.
