Winthrop (tho Woman's ."'ollego) from
?60,000 to $50,000. and this Beema '.o
have met tho good sense of the House.
All parties wore generous in praise of
the conduct of the old South Carolina
Collego, tho officials of which account
ed in dotail for every penny that tho
State gives.
There are (3) big items?.$200,000 for
Stato Pensions; Interest on Public
Debt $285,000; Insane Hospital $150,000.
It would be useless to add the many
other smaller items, which make an ag
gregate close on to a million, In many
places there could be a saving,--that Is
to say $500, in probably fifty places.
To instance, there is a phosphate In
spector at $1,20). ITeshould go quick
ly. At Winthrop they have a littlo
vegetable farm to raise peas and ber
ries for th- girls (tho sweet darlings), a
Supor-intendont at a good big salary
and an Assistant. Now this Assistant
is clearly a Super and he should go
quickly. Wo fear there are too many
80op-ers in every department?with
too many type-writers and stenograph*
The militia are growing luxurious
and tho health department is getting
its hand deep into the grab bag. Lo
cal communities should learn to com
bat diseases as they como.
We have not (space to particularise,
but thrift is a good word for Legisla
tors to smoko with their Spanish to
bacco. The Bill as it swung through
the House will likely without material
alteration go through tho Si-nate.
Many Legislators have wheels in their
noggins und feel that *he Sta'.o is all
right if the State levy is not increased
and this it seems will be the case with
the present levy! But it should bo
less. We have all just been Hinging
up our caps and hurrahing ourselves
hoarso at the statement that tho State
assessment has* gained about eleven
Millions. But to what g^od end, to bo
sure? Wo aro not criticising the ac
tion generally of tho assembly?gene
rally they have done well?especially
in killing a ream of?of?fool bills.
Some of the work was admirably done
and promptly?notably th-j Jury and
tho county salary laws, which were in
confusion run mad.
Tho Sonate killed tho bi-ennial ses
sions bill?all wrong?the assembly
should only meet onco in two years, as
ia tho case with live sixths of tho
States. A cession costs $50,000 and
$25,000 should bo annually saved and
we would have betts-r Legislation.

The Houso shied for ten days Mr.
Johnson's (alias Bellii uer's) anti-trust
bill. Wo bought a black pony fifteen
years ago from the tail eud of a Bun
combe wagon and named him Souter
Johnnie, after Burn's blacksmith in
Tarn O'Shan'or. Latirons lies in a
valley liko tho valo of Tempo and ns
we rodo this pony homo to our soup,
he could spy a Buncombe bow-covered
wagon a mile onTodd's Hill nod would
budge no furthor. When tho wagon
came near and he got a whiff of the
apples, chosttmts, cabbage, and cab
bage seed ho was ea'dsfied, bowed his
head and meekly boro his master
homeward. We always suspected this
pony of boing mooneye!. Johnson
finally got his anti trust wagon up in
the Houso on I hursday last, and the
statesmen, smelling no brimstone or
dynamite, voted it almost to a man.

Hut Lincoln was at the. head of the

spirit of a Jackson it could not have
happened. Lincoln had his good traits,
but he wanted In courage and man

We clip the following from the News
and Courier, a dispatch from Mom
"Mr. Kuntz Is touring the Stato of
Arkansas in search of a spot whore he
proposes to launch a schome which, if
successful, will revolutionize the cot
ton-picking industry of tho South.
"Kuntz and his companions are trav
eling on a special train, composed of
three vestibule sleepers. Kunts pro
poses to colonize a large number of
monkeys from Africa and South Amer
ica, which, bo says, make excellent
cotton-pickers. He is looking for a
large tract of land, which will be
bought in and a stock company formed
from the number of capitalists now
with him. He then proposes to embark
for Africa and bring back two ship
loads of monkeys. He sayB he has
(riven tho subject much study and has
spent many days in tho African jun
g'es, and understands monkey talk as
well as the Ethiopian language."
Then what becomes of the negro
cotton picker? What sort of a greet
ing will he give Jocko? A body of
Southern Christians built just after
tho war when they were very poor a
college at Sewanee, Tenn., in the midst
of tho mountains for the economical
education of their children. About
400 boys attend. Until recently tho
wives of tho Mountaineers did their
launderincr, when for economy a steam
laundry was established. And now the
free and independent mountaineers
threaten to dynamite and blow to atoms
the college, destroy the Professors and
have driven two of them out of tho

The Bill in the United States Senate,
to create a National Park In the moun
tains of North Carolina, Virginia,
Georgia and South Carolina, has the
favorable report of the committee. It
appropriates five Million Dollars and
it is thought the lands can be purchas
ed at two and three Dollars per acre.
It is about as good Democratic doctrine
(poor indeed) as clearing rivers and

It seems that Ilobson wants to be

Schley has been retired, but he don't

Tho Lauron8 Lyceum Course.
Mr. Editor:?Please allow mo space
for a few words upoij an important
matter. Tho Laurcns Lyceum Course for
tho season closes with tho next lecture,
which, I understand, is to be given in
the near future. The thanks of the en
tire community are eminently duo Dr.
Washington, T. O. Lucas, and any others
who may have aided them in the prcse
oution of tho plan, for tho entertaining
and elevating course of attractions. But
while wo sincerely thank them for tho
past, we must at tho samo timo look to
the future and plan for the coming season.
Let me exhort the cntiro community
to take an active interest in this groat
educational institution, for suoh it is.
Laurens cannot afford to bo behind her
neighboring oities in suoh enterprise?.
Let mo urge the }oung people, who lam
persuaded realize that 1 am their friend,
to take an active interest in tho work.
If all would support the cause, the cost
would be very light.
I would suggest tho following plan :
Let as, on the evening of tho next lecture,
meet a half-hour before it is to begin,
talk over tho subject, and elect a ooui
mittee to arrange for tho next season.
Of course I would suggest tho election of
those who have served us so faithfully in
the pi as this Committee.
With best wishep for every enterprise
that looks to the betterment of the com
munity, I am,
Very sincerely,
