These Are True Sayings.
A horse that is not ridden
gives no pleasure.
Bells that are not rung

The North Carolina Teacher.
This is one of the most valuable and
interesting aid.s to the teacher, that it
has ever beetn our fortune to see. It is
filled with hints which it would be well
-for teacher and scholar to read, and
we would like to see it in the hands of
every one of them. Published by
Alfred Williams & Co., Raleigh, N. C..
at $1 per year.
From the "Blue Ridge."
Mr. W. A. Fowler, Headhen Moun
tain, N. C.. says he used Norman's
N'eutralizing Cordial and found it an
excelleuit remedy for Dyspepsia. He
has been troubled with that baneful
malady a long time and if Norman's
Cordial conquers .it, he will be very
grateful to the proprietors of such a
splendid medicine.
"The Drummer" ceb nges its name
and hereafter will fly its colors under
the more dignified title of "The Mecr
chant and Traveller." We like the name
of Drummer, it is suggestive ,and dislike
to see it laid aside, but gracefully ae
cept the chatnge, and doubt not that the
tionjunctive title will tell its tales pleas
antlv and well. No doubt the fun
will~be increased. May it spread from
pole to pole.

On the u)per side of Stork's saloon
In Columbia, and just below the gen

Department of the polite and attentive
C. J. Carroll, one of the best barbers
in the city. He is assisted morever by

know of no better place to get a clean
shave and a good hair cut. Travellers
will please bear this in mind.
The Quicksilver Poisoning.
Albert Myrick, the negro boy charg
ed with having quicksilvered Mr.
George Boozer's milk, was arrested at
Helena last week, by Chief of Police
Fellers. A prelimiinary examination
was held before Trial Justice Packer
last Saturday, and Myriek was comn
[mitted to jail to await Court, in default
of bail which wa fixed at $1,000. The
evidence was circumstantial, and it is
anot certain that the prisoner is guilty.
New Machines.
The Daniel Praitt Revolving Head
Cotton Gins. Feeders and Condensers
are now offered to the' farmers of this
County by the Messrs. Aull Bros.,
proprietors of the steam mill. They have
'acquired quite a fame as the best bie

responsibility of the Aull Bros.. are a
guarantee of their excellence. We
advise our farmer friends to look at
and examine into the merits of these
machines before purchasing elsewhere.

Another Blaze.
Yesterday morning bet ween three
and four o'clock, Gen. Y. J. Pope's
smoke-house was destroyed by tire. 1
The flames had advanced so far when
i discovered, that nothing was saved. 1
With the 'exception of the building.
the loss was small. Gen. Pope was
absent in North Carolina, and there is
little doubt that the fire was incendia
ry-there had been no fire in the house.
We need a fire engine it is true; but a
free application of rope at the right
place, would have a wholesome effect
on this tow-there are necks that
were made to be cracked.

Fire Engine.
Mr. Forbes displayed the merits of
his fire enjine last _Monday, and it
gave perfect satisfaction. He stationed
the engine at the creek and with a hose
950 feet long, threwv a stream of water 1
over the weather-vane on the top of the
Opera House tower.; using 1,000 feet
of hose, he played over the Court
House. The entire distance from the
creek to the Opera House is up hill,
and immense power was required to do i
satisfactory work.
The Company offer the engine at
$4,500. in six equal annual instahnenta,
at 7 per ceit. The matter will be re
ferred by the Council to a citizens'
meeting as soon as the Mayor returns
-at which time the probable cost of ]
cisterns will be furnished. We hope
the- citizens will buy the engine ;antd
wse think they will.
Mad Dogs.

and struck it hard.
Last S-iturday a mad dlog was killed1

good work go oni. Slaughter the ca
nines on the principle that they arc
likely to go mad, if they are not alre:uly
so. A pretty free thinning of the dng
tribe would not seriously affeet tiw
value of real estate, but it would be a
good thing for the dogs, especially thomc
Policeman Sill brought down a yal

thought to be guilty of madness, lie

"Yes." Well, what does he say ? "That
it is only another of the thousand-and-one

"No" Losing ground steadily? "I'm
afraid so." Not as well this year as last?
Then take a friend's advice and write to Drs.
Starkey & Palen, of 1109 Girard Street,
Philadelphia, giving them a plain statement
of your case. Ask them if they have ever
treated a similar case with their Compound
Oxygen, and if, in their judgment, there is I
hope of your deriving any real and perman- 4

send you a report of some cases like yours

February 1, 1883.
I have been using ALLCOCK'S PonoUs1
P.AsEns for a number of years and always
with marked benefit. I have been much
troubled with Muscular Rheumatism; have
been treated by five of our best physicians
without receiving any relief~ whatever. I
then used ALI.cocK's PLASTER onl the parts1
affeted and I con assure you the pain has]
almost entirely left mec. I can recommend
them to every one as the best plaster made.
I have tried other kinds but found them
worthless. B. F. GALLAGHER.1

I have been greatly troubled with Rheutna
tism and Weak Kidneys. I was advised to
try A LLCocK's POROUS PLASTERS (had used
two other kinds of so-called Porous Plasters,
which did me no good), but one of yours has
worked like a charm, giving me complete re
ief, and I have not been troubled with
Rheumatism and Kidney Complaint since
using them, and I consider mrself cured.

emtembered that, in spite of dis-zent

nu-t go by the />oard; did they not

md malaria stalks with an erect front,
nd pig pens are an abomination-be
ase, alas, there arc no0 Boards. Re
pect and even cherish this venerable in,
titution. Even now its manly shirt

ng above humane promptings too vio
ent to be kept down, It is preparinig

reathu, and wait. The Board is float
nlg on the top of a serene conscious
ess, that there are privies, without a

hat the board has discovered this;

hat the Board will act promptly ? We

The monotony of st:tying in one
place. no matter how beautiful or at
tractive becomes nonon Ous, I do not
like it. Last Th1rscty afternoon I
took the G. & C. train for Columbia,
or rather it took me, and after a pleas
ant jolting I reaehed the city on a hill.
and found the affable and pleasant
Chief Clerk. A. C. .J.. at the depot
reaching out to shake me iy the hand.
and with carciage vaiting to take me
to the conmforiahle home presided over
by Col. Truetlii a!nd his ::-'omplished
Wife. Again the lines fell to me de
lightflly. Ilone is indeed foudul tiere,

the ladies captivatinig. It i a d00(1
place, verily. A visit ui mornli!g to
the Penitenti:ry was iin order. at least
it Was. =0 or.lerkd by Col. Lipscomb,
that I should appc"ar befor.! his aut
gust preit"-" and take the "grand
round" of Ihat sple.lidly muaelag"ed in
situtio!1. With hii- ucenlstomle:l cO:r
te, he siared the walk by a ride in
his 'ilgy, and o: arrivi .g turned Ime
over to Dr. Strother Pope. who took
me first to view the lar:" colnmlissary
building in course of erectionl, thi
bil(liIg will be Vhlen completed 105
feet long, by 80 wide, two stories high,
with a commodious cellar. From it I
had a tiue view of the r.iging canawl,'
on which 160 convicts were laboring.
It was a plietluresque sight, and a
herculean labor, and will eventually
make Columbia a city of first in
portance. From that interesting point
to the Stocking Factory. There are
lifty convicts, and as many coin
plieated machines engaged in tirning
out these necessary artieles of human
wear, thousands of pairs in all stages
of formation lying piled in every di
rection. Next I was taken through
Dibert's Shoe Factory. One hundred
hands are employed thr:', every part
of a shoe being fashioned by ditlerent
hands, and the number of completed
shoes made daily is wtondeiful to an
up-countryman. These shoes are made
of first class material, every pair war
ranted from the finest ladies' or gentle
man's shoe or boot, down to the plain
brogan. The manufacture of shoes
for the dude even is done there. This
busy hive is watched over by young
Ben Lane of Newberry. A visit to
the Carpenter's shop followed, there
every kind of wood work is done, and
well done. The Doctor then afforded
me a treat by walking through and
looking at Capt, Sligh's magnificent
garden, one of the best for its size in
the State. Vegetation there does its
prettiest and best, large white lead
cabbage, immense onions, great toma
toes just turning, made me think that
it was a good thing to be a convict. for
these luxuries are grown for them.
The Doctor spoke in high praise of
Capt. Sligh, and he is worthy of it.
Out of the garden I was met by Super
inlteudent Lipscomb, who relieved Pope
and took me in tow. It was the wash
ing hour, just before dinner, and the
convicts in companies filed in, washed
and filed out again. The washing ap
parattts is neat, novel and convenient,
consisting of a pipe about 75 feet long,
through which a stream of pure, clean
water flows jetting half inch streams
at a distance of twelve incies each,
thus afrording every washer a separate
place. It is an adirable arrangement.
It was a pleasure to see the convicts at
their dinner meal, which consisted of
a well filled pl.te of vegetables, fresh
beef anti bread, each having a sutfi
cient quantity of well cooked food, Col.
L. believing in feedir his unfortunate
boarders bout.tifully band well; half
an oniioni is al.s set bes ide each plate,
morning anid noon, as a sanitary pre
caution. The ho-pital was next seen.
About twenty were ont the sick list, all
sitting upl anld waitinig for dinner(, a
sure sign that they were not seriously
iiidisposed. The siek are well taken
care of, and get b)roth, and sweet
things. when their conidit ion requires
it. The bathing room, aniothier impor
tant feature, is most worthy of notice.
In this room there are forty tubs, each
being tilled with water, every Sunday
morning tIhe convicts are made to wash
thoroughly andI dress in clean clothes.
Time did not admit of a mote exteind
ed view of the various other p)oin,.t5 of
