it behoove* us to seek a rnan of like

Gov. Lowry's Message to tho Leg
islature is entirely too voluminous
for m> to reproduce it. Hu devotes
the major portion of it to the subject
tale finances, and revenues: Jle
that if the law-makers with the
consent of me of the executive have
heretofore been too liberal ill the sup
port of educational and charitable
institutions, that this support can b«
reduced,or iu the case of the uchnol ,
colleges and benevolent institutions,
entirely withdrawn. The Governor
is strictly in favor of enforcing tie
collection of the poll tax, us the de
linquent polls amount 70,000 or 80,000
dollars per annum. He is in favor
of making failure to pay poll-tax u
misdemeanor punishable by fine and
imprisonment, un ; bu recommends
an amendment to the Constitution
making the payment of tho poll-tax
a condition of the right of suffrage.
IL> calls attention to the fact that the
judiciary expenses of a county aiv
the heaviest, brought about hy th •
trial of misdemeanors and petty of
fences in the Circuit Court. He' is ot
tHf opinion that the district attorney
should he paid staled salaries and re
cieye no other fees. This same re
commendation was made by the
Governor, two years ago. lfo en

lature that inasmuch us the Statqlias
already leased the penitentiary and

liact cannot he get aside or cancelled
unless the lessees have violated their
terms and conditions ami thereby
forfeited their right under the lease.
Circuit Court bus been in session
this week, Judge Roane presiding
with his usual impartiality and abil
ity. Tin* (locket is the lightest known
for years past. The petit juries were
discharged on Wednesday, hs there
was virltiully nothing for them to do.

Borne of our exchanges are discus

ami fiction, or whether it, should tie

Eastern journals as » general rule
lean twoard the romantic, while th«
Western papers are more oij the »xi.
entitle order. There is au old saying
that "history repeats itsi llj". and this
seeips to be true in this instance
The romance first originated in the'
East, but after a lapse of time the
great West was the chosen field of
all fictitious literature, while tbs
East produced the solid and practioal
works. Again, in the mutabiiit
human affairs, has a change
produoed and while the Western
world is beginning to furnish sclen.
tific investigation, the land toward
the rising of the sun is again return,

This change is just beginning to be
perceptible and is taking plane gradu.
ally, but steadily. The reason for
tliis is found iu the faot that the
American people are restless and
ever demanding a ebauge. Thi»
demand for something new, some
things different induced the novelist
of to-day to abandon the wornout
themes of the West and to seek new
scenes and characters for the plots
of his novels. The reason that II,
Rider Haggard's novels are so
lar at present is, that he, realising
the change Jn the popular taste, has
endeavored to satisfy the new de>
maud by his latest works. But w»
are get ting off the subject whiuh we
started out to dscuss. We would
favor, as some of the oollege journals
are doing, a mixture of both the scien
tific and the romantic. A paper
which has a harmonious blending
of both kiuds of article ie the one
that is (he most interesting to all
classes of readers. Do not try to.
select subjects that will please every
body for you will end by pleasing
nobody, but use your judgment in
getting up matter for your paper and
make such selections as will make a
pleasing and harmonious whole,
whether the articles be humerous,

lagging and ties, there still remains
over 41 pounds of lint to the 400 of
seed cotton. From the same seed
Ills son-in-law. Mr. Joe Qariagus
of Winston aoiruty, raised. 1138
pounds of seed cotton which yielded
a bale weighing 478 pounds.
Mr White says that yield per acre
of Peterkin col ion is fully as much
as any kiud he ever saw grown.
Everybody who has tried the Pe
terkin cotton say It pays better than
any other.
Every farmer should supply him
self with some of the seed and keep
them pure. By doing so our whols
county would, In a few years, be sup
plied with a kind of cotton that
would give belter returns for the
time and labor spent on it (bun at
