Charleston is sitting down and wondering why the cotton is not shipped there, while other ports are paying better prices a^d getting the cotton. * * * Bamberg ought to have a business league. We have spoken to several about the idea, but received so little encouragement that we concluded to abandon it. * * * A petition will be presented to the legislature at its coming session, asking that a monument be erected at Chickamaugua Park to the South Carolina Confederate dead. * * * ^?he South Carolina cotton mills are making it warm for the exporters in the matter of buying cotton. The prices paid by the mills are higher than the exporters will or do pay. * * * *?^ ^ ? vanAntlv juuge waxy uiccminciutunj Said that officers who sent up to the circuit court a long list of immaterial witnesses who did not know anything, should be held accountable for their action. The same practice no doubt is in force all over the State, and the counties are put to a great deal of useless expense along this line. There should be a change. * * * The claim is being made by some ultra dispensary papers that the people who want the beer dispensaries abolished are the prohibitionists. This is not true. We notice that everal newspapers who warmly support the dispensary, want the beer dispensaries removed. We have always been an advocate of the dispensary, and have always been opposed to the beer saloons. They are as bad or worse than the old barrooms in our opinion. If the dispensary is not to be a restrictive measure, it had better go. * * * Our city council should adopt an ordinance exempting all manufacturing enterprises from taxation, for a term of years at least. Other towns find it profitable to grant these concessions, and it would be a good stroke of business policy. It would no doubt mean more home enterprises, which would benefit the town and indirectly every citizen. Wei hope this matter will be given serious attention by those in charge, and that some inducements will be offered to peVsons wishing to establish manufactories here. * * *. And now it seems that we are to have another dispensary scandal. The whole atmosphere around this institution app. ars to be tainted with moral corruption, so much so that no man can maintain his integrity. The salvation of the sys tem lies in the abolishiug of the State board of control and the State dispensary in Columbia, allowing each county to manage its own affairs and buy where it pleases. Affairs will never be any better as long^as human nature is weak and the daily temptations to do wrong exist. x * * * * We hope to see the legislature enact a law which will result iu all the highways being worked by direct taxation. The preseut system is inequitable and in just, and the consequence is that our roads are hadly worked. Let the tax be on every vehicle, so that the man using the roads most will pay a greater amount for keeping them in good condition. Uutil this is done we will not have good thoroughfares. Then, too, we want the wide tires. We are glad to note that the farmers of this county are already using the wiaevtireu wagons to some extent. * * * Put your boy to work if he is not jo school. If there is nothing else for him to do put him to whitewashing the back fence, keep the lawn mowed, and even cnt the winter's supply of wood, anything is better than loafing about tow'n at the rear end of a cigarette, learning all the evil habits and contracting all the vices that are afloat to catch idlers. Ko honest labor will hurt your boy, but the evil habits he may contract in the streets may kill his soul and poison his moral nature so as to make him a detriment to the community in which he lives and bow down his grayhairt d parents with sorrow. If the fathers and mothers of to-day would only learn the importance of twining the sons so as to be indus-j trious and keep them off the streets, j the coming generation would be inestimably better for it. A Remedy for Melon Wilt. The watermelon growers of the South have always been handicapped by the necessity of using different land each >ear for the growing oi their crop. By sad experience the} found that land once used for watermelons would never successfull} grow another crop. The attempi has been made a dozen years aftei the first crop and failure was the re suit. At first it was thought tha il was due to soil exhaustion an( some planters would fertilize mon heavily the second year, but this theory has been exploded by scien tific investigation. It has been discovered and demon strated that what is known a; "watermelon wilt" is due to fung generated by the decayed melon: i left oil the land. These fungi attacl ! the water and sap ducts, clogging I the same, and thereby causing wil j and death to the melons. 1 Mr, Pinckney Brown, of Aiken who has extensive melon interest: at Averill, S. 0., on the Port lloya railway, carried on some experiment: last season with a view of discover iug an antidote for melon wilt. H< says he planted 10 acres, which hat grown its first crop in 1894. Bj the use of certain fungicides it which he immersed the seed and ap plied to the drills he grew a firn crop of melons. He had 150 acre; planted in melons last season ant the 10 acre experimental plot showec larger vines which kept greenei louger and produced better melon: than any of his other fields. Th< cost of this chemical treatment h not over $1.00 per acre. The com iug season Mr. Brown intends t< use it extensively on his plantation feeling certain that he is on th< right track and has discovered some thing that will restore to the planter; a large acreage for melon planting It is very probable he will pnt hi; formula on the market.?Journa and Beview, Columbia's city ball lot has beet sold to the Carolina National Ban] for $26,100.

The yacht races for the Americ cnn will be^in next week. The issr ?r - o of the contests is, of course, uncei tain and the races will be very clos but the chances are favorable to th American yacht, Columbia, an chance is the ruling feature of th contest. The best opinion now i that Columbia is superior in ligb airs and Shamrock is the better in stiff breeze. The average weathe for this season of the year off Sand Hook, where the racing course i laid, is fair with light winds, so th American boat is the likely winnei Probably Columbia was designed t [ meet just these conditions.

It is significant that higher price for cotton are obtained at or nea the cotton mills of the State thai those interior markets which hav no nulls or local demand to supply The reason is obvious. Eastern am export buyers say they cannot mee the prices our mills are now paying Charleston is getting less thai her quota of the cotton shipments and niauy people wonder why she i being so badly left behind.

Governor McSweeney lias received i j an anonymous comimuiication from ; Colleton county, in which it is : charged that three magistrates of r that county are employing ignorant negroesto do special duty. He r states that each magistrate has a ret gularly bonded constable, but they r are in a habit of getting negroes - who can neither read nor write to t serve warrants or other legal papers 1 on while men. It is added that ? white men refuse to be arrested by 5 such constables or accept service on | other papers unless they are read to them, which the negro constables - cannot do. s The correspondent concludes i that such practice on the part of s magistrates is bound to cause trouble, < and unless it is stopped there is go; ling to be killing and race troubles t in that county, The governor usually does not , pay any^ttention to such communi s cations, but as it was evidently writ1 ten by an intelligent citizen, who. s seemingly forgot to sign his name, - the governor has decided to refer ? the letter to the solicitor.
