The Herald is In the highest respect aFam
ly Newspaper, devoted to the material In
terests or the people of this County and tht
State. It circulates extensively, and as ax
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms, see first page.
Very many persons, of undoubt,
ed intelligence, are in favor of ma
king nominations for county off
cers by primary elections; and they
are entitled to a respectful hearing
even among those who prefer nomi
nating conventions.
Several respectable newspapers
of this State are in favc of adopt
ing the "primary plan" for making
congressional nominations ; and
they are entitled to their opinion,
regardless of the opinions and
preferences of others.
One of our exchanges has this to
say, "We should like to see all the
candidates, from Governor down
to coroner, chosen in this way"
by primary elections. Why not 9
Unless the elections are multiplied,
is it not to be feared that our peo
ple will have some time~to devote to
other pursuits than politics ? Can
it be doubted that we would better
promote the general good by hav.
ing a spring canvass, one or two
summer can,yasses, and an early
fall canvass followed by a canvass
in the winter ? Then let us adopt
the "primary plan" or any other
plan that will keep the political
caldron eternally bubbling!
We are patiently listening for
some one to propose that the Presi
dent and the members of the electo.
ral college be nominated by the
"primary plan." Of course a ma
jority vote should be required so
that two primary elections, at the
least, must precede a nomination.
The Republicans, too, must be in
duced to adopt the "primary plan,'
so as to give additional life to the
old land. Then, by nominating
our town and city councils by the
"primary plan," we can safely count
on a political revival such as a civ
ihized country never saw, and will
pray to be delivered from for all
ages to come.
It may be speciously argued thai
the convention plan costs less
money and consumes less time.
while it engenders less bad feeling;
but intelligent voters will not allow~
themselves to be deluded. How
can we spend our money or con
sume. our t ime to better purpose
than in saving the country ? Are
we not born politicians ? Do we
not talk politics from childhood.
and snuff politics on the breeze?
Is not politics our trade, and should
we not ply our trade ?
Seriously, is- it not high time for
our people to realize that we have
too many political canvasses, and
devote themselves more unremit
tingly to their private duties ? We
think so.
Mr. Tillman is confident that the
Republicans have reached their
limit because 'no party has ever
held the government more than
twenty-four years. It must require
a long course of political training
to develop such powers of argumen
tation as Mr. Tillman here displays.
lie thinks that the machine is too
old to last long, and that it will be
destroyed by its own defects rather
than by any outside pressure. An
agreeable delusion, surely ! Mr.
Tillman thinks that Judge Field is
the man to lead the Democratic
host, because he stood aloue in op.
posing the legal tender decision.
Mr. Randall, of the Augusta Chiron
icle, says that Mr. Tillman's idea is
not only ingenious but profound.
Judge Field has not, so far as we
are informed, been interviewed or
the subject. He may see it the
same light.
Col. Cash, it is said, will sue
Chief Constable Richboury for $20,
000 damages and "then pay his
compliments to the News Jy Cou
rier." if this be true, the public wilj
not find fault with Col. Cash. His
chief fault heretofore has been his
disagreeable readiness to take the
law into his own hands anid resort
to the pistol rather than to the ma
chinery cf the Courts.

SUMMIT, FLA., March 21st, 1884.
EIToRS HERALD.-l left New
berry on March 17th, .nd passed
down the C. &. G. R. R., and am sor
ry to report so much damage, by
recent rains, to the fine bottom
lands, from Koon's trestle, to
Peake's. On we glided, Columbia
passed, and. the mighty Congaree
next noticed, who told us she was
on a bender, and we have never seen
the Congaree so full as on this oc
casion. Charleston was reached, and
some hours consumed, awaiting the
sailing of the steamer "City of Pa
latka."' She is a fine boat costing
some $200,000. When I landed
some 15 or 20 laborers were en
gaged loading her, taking some 10
hours to accomplish the task, and
one laborer performed as much
work as any three of the best la
borers we have in Newberry. Her
cargo amounted to some $1,400
-to $1500 fr-eight charges, besides a
large number of passengers. At last
the whistle blew, the Captain called
all aboard, and the brave "City
of Palatka" with her precious cargo
of passengers and freight glided
swiftly out upon the mad waters
beyond Fort Sumter, when land
could no longer be seen, for the
first time, by your humble writer.
But this was not the worst, for I
began to get sick,, yes awful sick,
until I thought I would die, but still
I was worse than ever, and then
only feared I could not die to be
relieved. 'Well, after 24 hours I be
gan to improve when I saw land at
-Jacksonville, Fla. IIere we re
mained a few hours. when I took a
stroll over that beautiful City, ad
miring th~e many Florida curiosi
ties. At last we were on our way up
the St John's River, feeling proud
that no more sea sickness would fall
to our lot. After a brief ride Pa
latka was announced, and we knew
the fact, for the fragrant odour of
the~ orange bier . soon told us we
were in Florida sure enough. Pa
latka is also a nice place, and t,he
forty thousand orange trees that
line her many streets, filled with
the golden orange, as many as five
bushels on a tree, besides the beau
tiful fragrant bloom, and the neat
ly painted stores, large flower gar
dens in full blodm, all reminded me
that I was truly in a fairy land. I
landed at Steamer, "Florida" (as
the "City of Palatka" had to go on
back to take the Newberry people
some oranges) and while waiting
leaving time, I cast a hook into the
water, and in less time than it takcs
to write it, caught a fish'weighing 6
to 8 pounds, fishing some 20 min
utes I caught some 30 or 40 pounds
of fish. How T did wish for Willie
Sligh, for this was the first time in
my life that I ever tired pulling in
fish. On up the St. John's river to
Astor, quaffing the pure breeze, ad
- miring the many fine orange groves,
gazing at the large alligators bask
ing lazily in the sun, how I did wish
for Sniffles', for this kind of a trip
would cure "his millions of pains.

an orange grove, with infinite priv

Summit, having sold some six or
more lots. Buildings are going up,
hotels, stores, and saw mills all do

mulberry's. Cotton planted, some
cotton half knee high, plenty crab

With the Doctor's- fine grove, and
in the lovely town of Summit, I do
think he ought to try to form a co

Dear lady, there is probably no use
telling you that fashionable life in a
great city is a rough one on your
beauty. Late hours. loss of sleep and
mental excitement will leave you by
and by shorn of those beautiful tresses
which drew lovers around you in other
years. Artificial substitutes can never
'pass for those rich and glossy loeks.

hair from falling out, restore it- Znat

MESSRS. EDITORS : I have heard a
great deal about liens. The people
of our neighborhood are begining
to sympathize with the poor man
of 1885. Several of them think
if Geo. S. Mower and Dr. S. Pope
could be elected representatives,
they would surely have that law re
pealed. A ticket ought to be run,
called anti-liet, which would re
ceive almost a unanimous vote.
The man who is in favor of liens,
would use his influence that way if
the law should be under discussion.
Mr. - says he is not going to
furnish liens this year or any other
year. IIe is done with liens for
ever. From this time on he is go
ing to advance the cash to his hands,
and let them purchase their sup
plies for cash.
This is certainly a good idea.
Look at the heavy per cent. on
every thing, for tobacco to burn and
powder and shot, to shoot at game
and never kill any. We see men
out shooting at partridges, and they
shoot as much as one hundred
times each, and kill about a doz
en birds. The per cent to each one
in this out-lay would be near one
dollar and twenty-five cents, a nice
effect of the lien law.

while alone I was looking through
some old waste papers and chanced
to find some of my old composi
tions. -One especially drew my at
tention; the subject "The Ruins of
Time." As I gazed over the lines
in pensive thought, silently they
brought before me faces I shall see
no more, one was a blessed brother
who died in the bloom of youth.
Then the precious memory of by
gone days come back to me like a
dream; in my time of meditation,
I recalled with emotion the "sweet
hour of payer" in the old home,
where we were all assembled. This
brother would lead in the singing.
Our other brother, whose remains
are far away from this land he loved
so much, but whosebright spirit
I hope is mingling with those who
roam the fair field of the Heavenly
Eden, would read a chapter in the
old family Bible and our father
close the services by prayer. Oh,
what changes since then. When
thinking of such changes and
viewing with silent awe what a
desolating effect time has upon
every surrounding object, we are
struck with amazement at the frail
ty and short duration, of all exist
ing creation. Every thing breathes
in us that they are passing away,
that life is a journey, yet a journey
of une.jual -lengths, some are long
on the way. Storms and sunshine,
shade and light intermingle. At
length the journey ends. Bowed un
der the weight of years, like a shock
of corn fully ripe they go to the
grave. The empty chair, the vacant
seat beside the hearth stone is pain
ful and gives us the solemn warn
ing that all wordly things are mark
ed with instability. Let us strive to
spend the short space allowed here
in the acquisition of pure and un
defiled intelligence, that shall make
us happy here and that shall fit us
to enter that temple not made with
hands, and upon which time has no
effect; where there is neither be
ginning of days nor end of life;
where saints immortal dwell, and
the spirits of just men made per
fet. X. X. X.
Wecnt home in the full triumph of
of faith, on Tuesday 18th of March, in
the sixty3-fouIrth year of her age, our
beloved mother Mrs Riosa McNinch.
After a weary invalid life of almost
twenty years, after months of inex
pessible suffering her life went out
calm and beautiful as sinks a sumnmer's
sun. to rest, as dies a wave upon the
shore. .Ear-ly left a widow and meet
ing with sad reverses of fortune, she
raied and edneated by her own ex
ertion her five children, one son, and
for dauighters. The son who was the
pride and stay of her life fteIl at Gettsy
burg. anid there sleeps in his soldier
grave. The others whose faithful love
andl de-otion and the tender aflection
of her grand children which she said
prolonged her frail life, are left weep
ing over the vacant chair, yearning for
the touch of a vanished hand, andl the
sound of a voice that is still. Her pure
christian life, her gentle cultivated
manners won for her friends inuumera
ble, and young and old bore evidence
of the fact by bringing tributes of
tears and tiowers to our saintedl dead.
