No election by thc people in Rhode
Old Tray, we have no doubt, was an

as misfortune to bc found in bad company.

The public schools in many of the dis
tricts have closed as a result of the in
formation obtained nt the trustee meeting
of last. Monday. The meeting was very
successful In accomplishing its object.
One of the speakers getting somewhat
excited emphasized his words by tirin<'
oil' a pistol, which fortunately did no
^pjerage although th': room was crowded. '
We wish to explain to our readers
the reason why several personal
squibs appeared in our last issue. It
is not our style to expose or attack
any ene unless first attacked or wc
see that lue exposure is a muller of
great public interest. A copy of the
Nevis and Times came into our pos
session before our going to press and
knowing thc author of eertiun personal
allusion, all that wc said of a per
sonal nature was elicited in reply.
Allen Brown was not one of those
who bought some of that mort? aged
land but there was a transaction in
reference to some landrin winch Alien
Brown was interested. We have am
munition enough on hand, but it is
not our purpose or desire to use it be
fore the next campaign. One who
gives a hit ought not to complain if
the compliment is returned.

On Sunday last, Marshal Wolfe
was informed by some of the work
men on Izlar & Dibble's new office
that a man was in this vicinity whom
i hey recognized as one who had com
mitted a murder in Augusta several
months ago. Marshal Wolfe discov
ered that a man answering thc de
scription of thc murderer had been lo
have his fortune told, had left two
dollars and was expected to return
as soon as thc fates could bc consult
ed in reference to his destiny. Thc
fortune teller was well posted as
to the suspicions against him and
when ho returned accused him of be
ing a murderer, when he instantly
fled. Ile was captured and is now
waiting for a requisition from thc
Governor of Georgia. The man's
name was Rubin Gcrtcr.v We under
stand bc has confessed the crime.
Banabus Williamson has sued the
FREE CITIZEN for $20,000 damages
done to his reputation ! Think ol the
plethoric reputation of a county clerk
being bled by a few squibs from our
feeble organ to the tune of $20,000 !
This is certainly more effectual ser
vice than we had anticipated. Thiel
little field piece of ours must bc worth
preserving and keeping in good repair, j
j as wc ure more than certain we shall
have further use for it.
Next week we expect to publish thc
complaint of the same Banabus Wil
liamson, omitting thc chorus after the
first verse, lt displays great legal
acumen, ami is worthy the profound
study of every aspirant to the legal
profession. We shall charge withing
for the advertisement.
All that we have said about said
Barnabus Williamson lias been stated
from good mot ives and for justifiable
ends and wc have faith in our ubi!it3
to prove in justification the turk ol
every assertion.

We are quite willing to give Senator
Andrews credit for any good work, and
we object to the above extract only so
far as it has a tendency to reflect upon
the House delegation. A bill was intro
duced in the House to rtsbate the tuxes
on all the property destroyed by the tire;
while the "joint resolution" provided for
thc- rebutement of taxes only ott such
property as was not insured. As there
were similar cases in other counties, il
seemed to be the opinion of the House
that thes'j should be all provided for in
one hill. So the committee to which was
referred thc House hill reported unfa
vorably. That, tho '.joint resolution"
was lost in thc House wu? not owing to
any lack of interest, energy or influence
on thc part of our representativo?, but
to thc fact that. It did not reach thc
House In time to get the required read
ing to become a law. and as the result
shared tho fate of a great, many other
bibs and joint resolutions.
Why the Ends do not Meet.
There are thousands of families in
this country and abroad who have
always difficulty in making ends
meet. Many of them are diligenl
workers and earn well, but their pur
pose of cottage and comfort are frus
trated, and their purses empty.
They aro, constantly falling short of
their desired goal. They arc of that,
large class who arc ever making mort
gages upon their earnings before they
are received. They always flatter
themselves that great successes are
ia stone for them next year so they
go on spending foolishly in the mean
time. The wants of these people are
never satisfied. Like spoiled chil
dren, that which hangs so gracefully
upon the shoulders of rich neighbors
they must have. Everything that con
tributes to manhood ami independ
ence is sacrified in order to get it.
That was not the way Benjamin
Franklin mounted up to high emi
nencc in financial and intellectual
strength. He earned before he spent
and always expended with thought
ful judgment. His investments al
ways hi ought homo good returns.
He <*ns the friend of struggling worth,
and because a wisc spender he was
capable of giving a helpins hand
where help was needed. Franklin
always made the ends meet, and
helped others to do so.
In the matter of domestic expendi
tures we have lost the common sense
of our forefathers, and have conse
quently missed thc contentment which
distinguished them. Wc must, if wc
would bc independent and and able
to hell) others, have reference again
to first principles, amt refuse to en
croach upon capital, dealing spnrng
ly oven with the interest income.
The family that, would be prosperous
and powerful for good must reduce
iheir wants and increase their exer
tions. In thc day of activity and
high wages preparation is to be made
b>r rainey days; and how can this he
done, it', in the swelling iide, every
member of the family with furs and
leathers is aping the style and out
lay of families whose income is ten
times as great.
What shall wc say of that large
class who daily waste, aye, worse
than waste, dollar after dollar upon
rum and tobacco? Who is surprised
that these people after a while are
unable to make ends meet, and that
their families arc thriftless and ex
travagant? There are thousands of
amilies living in fashionable and ex
pensive quarters,sweat ing and schem
ing to equal their neighbors in what
is ca led gentility, ordering from thc
market canvass back ducks and the
choicest cuts, who arc wasting their
substance and beggaring themselves.
In the course of time a panie s? r?
lbese pitiful families, ami they are
more helpless than dismantled ships j
in a storm.
The linisucd scholar and j?real
apostle, St. Paul,-had a trade. Ile
always made thc ends meet. ile
wasn't too proud to work at thal
trade for his daily bread even when
he was thc 'nearer of heaven's high
commission. , Ile would not he bur
densome lo any. Of course he never
borrowed, for he always worked.
No wonder lin- pi-oplc were ready to,
give him lheinselve>.. St. Paul was
a great doer. Ile had no difficulty
in soiling himself to altered circum
alances. He was content in utiy con
Dollinf, bk?' our faculties, ar?' from
God, ami if wu misuse (hem, cert!.ii.

RKAD AN HOUR ? DAY. There was
a lad, who, at foin leen, wr.i nppiv. -.
ticed to a soap dealer. One ol' his
resolutions was to read an hour :t
day, or at, least at that rate, and be
had an old silver watch, left him by
his uncle, which he timed his reading
by. He stayed seven years with I is
master, and it was saul when he w
twenty-one he knew a much as thc
young squirl? did. Now let. us see .
how much time he had to read in, r.<
seven years, at the rate of one lu....
a day. It would be two thousand li - .
hundred and ii fly-fi vc hours, which al
the rate of eight hours a day, would
equal to three hundred and ten days ;
equal to forty-five weeks; nearly a
year's'reading. Thai time spent in
treasuring up useful knowledge wuold
pile up a very Iorgo stoi c. I am sure
it is wovih trying for. Try what you
cando. Begin now. In after years
you will look back upon thc task as
the most pleasant and profitable you
ever performed.-Guiding Star.
Sensibility would bea good portree.

Tliere is soon to be a paper entitieii ns
above, issued from this office, and pub
lished in the ?ntcrest* of the M. E. Church
in this portion of our work.
Since the unwise removal of the
Charleston Advocate^ our work has been
enlarging and extending in this section
and demands multiplying for a local or
gan. The Charleston Advocate was for
two years published tn Charleston. It
wits during this eventful period In the
history of our cause in the South, one ol
the most important auxiliaries of our
ivork. Its removal left a vacant place
liere which has not since been tilled,
is an old saying, "thatblessings brighten
as they take their Hight." This was cm
phatlcally true in reference to our claper
tor this coast. Many were taken by sur
prise nt hs sudden removal and were
anxious for Its return. If we had been
us fully advertised of the wants and
wishes of thc people in this section, be
fore the transfer of that paper to Atlanta.
Ca., as we were after It was done, lt
would never have gone from us. The
Methodist Advocate is a good paper und
?illly conducted, but it is too distant from
thu Atlantic coast to meet our local wants
in this suclion. Our work on this coast
ilillcrs in some particulars from our work
in thu section of Atlanta, or the valley- ol
tile Mississippi. Its peculiar phases can
not bc met by those who live at a dis
Lance from ns. and are not conversant
