wKriud and Revie 1||P^' favors tlie establishment of the wbipv . ping post in South Carolina We wel-, * come so able a journal to the rankR i of thpse papers in the Slate that have been advocating this thing for years. If we could adopt some such cheap mode of punishment as the whipping post for our petty criminals it would lie a great saving to the taxpayers, whose interest should be consulted in nreference to the feelings of the thieves who crowd our courts ? Orangeburg Times ami Democrat. There is truth irf eve'}* line of the above, and we don't believe there is n really honest i$an in the State but who will endorse the item. But from the delicate way the question has been handled by our Legislators here-1 tofore one would infer that they were afraid that the time might come :?ronnd when they would be brought up to receive their sha"re of the whip. Better luck to the act when it is again discussed. The chain gang is necessary, or the penitent ary will have to be doubled in size every few years- J The excitement over the municipal election in New York this fall is greater tlian ever was known before. The Tammany Democrats hare nominated Mr Abram S. Hewitt for Mayor, and the Irving Hall Demo cracy have pnt forward Mr. Henry George, who is called the workingman's candidate, while the Republicans have put forward Mr Theodore Rosevelt as their leader. It looks like war to the knife on every side; bu*, from appearances, Mr. Hewitt will probably win the race, as he lias the rich men on his side, and capital will win every time when only labor and honesty are pitted against it, no matter bow righteous the cause of the laborer may be. * Strong Language. The Edgefield Advertiser in announcing that the Fall term of the Court of General Sessions for that County will convene on the second Monday in November indulges in the following strong language : "For the sake of humanity we earnestly hope that a jury or juries will be found who, fearing not man, his machinations influences or schera ines. shall do their whole duty. This thing of fixing juries?and, shall we say it, Judges, too?venerable and lea-ned Judges?has gone on and on and on n<>til the heavens cry aloud to stop the shame; and let xl 1 ~ >i- >in we want. iue i>e?-n?ic iu v..?? ? -. we demand, we exact, honest verdicts from our jnries ami honest decrees from our judges; and when this becomes known, and also that legal punishment, swift, certain and condign, shall inevitably follow crime, crime iteelf will ceaso within all our borders and Edgefield will be blessed as never before. ' The Red Death." Russia is peculiarly rich in surprising see s and a-scdations. but the most astounding i? one lately brought to light bearing 'the ominous title of "Tiie Red Death,'' Its members affect to believe that tie ' 1? WD0 CODSClOUSJy permits miuLuci 'in suffer prolonged pain commits a mortal sin. In order to abbreviate the sufferings of humanity it is a matter of conscience with them to kill the sick, that they may he put out of their pain quickly. The association takes its name from the fact that its executioners, dressed in red for the occasion, strangle their victims with a red cord, placing them for the purpose upon a red catafalque, beneath the dull reddish light of an oil lamp. This strange and horrible association was brought to light by the energetic opposition of a man in Sartoi when his" mother and sister endeavored to strangle his sick wife. lie called in tlie authorities, who have already arrested some forty members of the murderous sect. Their organization * seems to be a transferance from In* dia to Muscoivte soil of the worship of Behwanee, the religion of the Thugs.?Ex. Volcanic Activity. The volcano of Tnnguragua, in the republic of Ecuador, is continuously in activity. Lava pours from it at short intervals, while clouds of oust ana asnes enveiop uae kuiuiiiii>. The villagers in the North and South have experienced a good deal of Buffering. The Ulbinas volcano, in the South of Peru, is showing signs of Activity Although- smoke has been issuing from the volcano.since the days of Columbus, still the inhabitants of the locality are alarmed at the increase in the volume of it now. Terrible Struggles with a Python. The 29|-font Python which recent' ly got away in City Hall Park, New York, again escaped this morning while being transferred from his box to a cage ai Austin & Stone's museum ! lioston. Crawling under the stage, i the snake broke away several boards,? entered" the cellar, got into the cold^ j * M i I nir box of the furnace and burst openits sides, the brinks flying in all diree tions Four men seized him, and after a terrible struggle, lasting an hour sand a half, they succeeded in caging him. During the fight the python n ound himself around two thick joist and snapped them as easily as if _ t .1. IT.

It would be better for us if we consider the manure made on the farm as a crop; and it is strange that we do not do so, for it is a product of ! the farm and has a money value as much as corn or hay or cotton. "When we once consider manure as a crop, we will take just as mnch pride, in making a big crop of manure as of corn; and we will no more allow part of the' manure crop to go to waste than we would part of the wheat or hay crop Generally but little can be charged against the production of the manure crop: all the cost is often the expense nf harvesting (gathering and storing), this crop. On the most fertile farms this crop is worth to the farmer several times the cost of harvesting it. And it is the greatest wonder of onr farming that we do not start out in the full with a determination to make a better manure crop than onr neigi bor. as we start out in the spring with a determination to make a better oat, potato or tobacco crop. . The cleanly man will harveR' a large manure crop, because he will gather up all refuse and put it in the compost heap. He will have clean stables, clean barns, c'ean yards?.a clean fa m; and cleanliness is the preserver of health. Thus we see that while til* wheat or potato crop supplies strength and energy, the manure crop, closely gathered and well kept, prevents the agents of disease from stealing away that strength. Pride in the manure crop goeth before wealth and health.? American Agriculturist for November. Beauty, the Auctioneer Attractiveness secures an added price for any product the fruit grower may have to sell. Beauty is one of the most successful auctioneers in the world. Berries in a clean box sell better than if in a dirty box; and the addition of a few green leaveR or a neat covering of netting of a complimentary color will further increase the price. -A decayed or dirty berry often prevents the sale of the quart. The keepers of fruit stands buy the nicest colored apples and rub them till they glisten Why? Because such apples will sell readily when apples of better quality, but not attractive, will not sell at all. Nor is it in the least dishonest to thus olitain the aid of beauty, the auctioneer. It is not practicing deception; it is si.nply pleasing the eye. I tvhinh ic nsnallv t.he hnvp.r. Pnttinsr ?

Oil Your Boots aud Shoes. The efficacy oiling depends OMwh upon the way in- which it is done.
