Second Step--Classificat ion. Class.
ifv the children's knowledge of cir
cular objects, as : buttons aire round;
there are two rou(i holes at the
scissors; there are round sides at tle
spool of cotton; some flowers and
leaves are round. Children may
suggest angular formis conmon to
other objects lthey have drawn.
Admit these suggestions, hut con.
-tinue the attention to circular forns

Third Step---Creation. Lead the
childron to create f'ron the circle.
Let each child trace a1 Circle. using
a disk of wood, I spool, or large but
ton-Imould (large 1ormns are p)referable,
nothing snmiler tihan two inches in
diameter should he used). Ask what
could be made ofL the circle. A few
smaller circles drawn within the
larger one will change it to a tarnct.

suggestions for designing with the
circle can be obtained. Elements
for designing maty be cut of card.

to arrange them so as to forl quite
elaborate designs.
Sixth Step-Analysis. Children
often desire to draw a picture or an
object, hut (o not. know how to be

'1 'o the Ilinor o/' h' R.-istcr
I aun in'oirmied t.hlat Capt. 1"arley
n has published in yo p" ltalper" some
n time ago at er"itic'isn of' the action of,
the State I' xecutive Coimimittee in
the m atter of the nomninat.ion of a
citandidate for thv offlee of Adjutant
and InSpect.or General, laying a
large measure i responsibilit I'or
the result upon Capt.. Dawshn and
myself', with somie personal abuse.
I have not read his commlllulicationl,
and, WILII matters of grave miomnent
now pressing upon mile, it is not. like
ly that I shall look it up ur find lime
for any reply to it; but inasmnuch as
- this is a subject, of party and public
Y interest, the public has the right, to
r know all t,hat t.hose who have been
s charged with :a lublic duty have
r done inl its behal. I will lthere.
fore take the tilme to say all that
s seems needful.
A It. sceems to have tcen a'sulaed by
s Captaiii Farley that. there was some
-obligatiom upon the commnittee to
" select him as the Candidate bccnuse
he received the next hig,hest, vote in
t the ('onventioi. Tlhis assutIlln]ytioil is
. ill t'ouidel, and there is nto runle or
usage to Sustain it. I * the action o'
a said ('onvention was to he re.arded
I, as having anyv conltrollin'. Iiree withl
the comnuittee, th'. e1fect would have
been just the (onverse )vsof auch pre
tension, for it inlicate(l that ('aptain
Farley was not, the el:o;ee of the
party. I I is claims had been p rc
set,ed anid rejectc I. I f it were o1f
ally conseucfince to la S;o. I coul
I'urnish satiator videne 1i I that, he
was not. even the choicc o' n.anv of
those who votc for hiln, such votes
having been inlluPenced b1v other con
siderations. If it was tIe desire of
the party that such i rule shoul hbe
a adopted, it wlubl he a simptl1 m:tLte'
to change the constituti in mnd the
Executive Comiiittee woub1 i be r'e
l lieved of a responsibility whieh I
lresion mm ne of its i mibers seck.
f Until such a ebtnie is aloptted, that,
- connittee would be recretcant to its
t trust by cvadting i:'s dluty tnltelr so.h11
-ia pretext,
'That the ctommauittcc did not, leel

the vote cast fo'6r ('a] tain Farley in

To the Deiocratic Voters of Neacher>
Reports have beon circulated i
this County to the eflect that I im
weak in the other Counties of ti
Congressional District, with a vie
to drawing off votes front me. I mn
credibly informed by trustworth
parties in those Counties that I wi
get a good vote in Abbeville, Ande]
ion, Oconoo and Pickens. I hol
therefore that my friends will not, 1,
misled, and that they will rally Co im
mipport at the polls on the 23
)f this month. There is method i
this attack; it is made for it p)u')osi
If I can be weakened here the
lope to defeat me. I stood shoulk(
o shoulder with you in .187(6. I wi
uniong the first to speak out ft
Eamptoni, home rule and white suprc
nacy in this County. When othel
tood aloof and said, let. Chanberlai
.valk over the track, my voice wit
raised against it, and I have the sat
sfaction of knowing that the eflort
)f myself and a few others in thi
sounty had much to do in saving th
state through the straightout novc
nont; over since I have kept th
vatchfires burning, and have left i
tone unturned towards keeping th
Democratic party together. I claim
hat in doing this I did but in
duty to my people and may StatE
Phis country belongs of right to th
,vhite people, and to then it slt]
)elong; no power can wrest it fror
is. We have pledged ourselves b
tll that is good, by all that is hols
md by all that is right that it sha]
-omain so. If you elect me I shali
vork for the good of our p,eopl
mnd of our common country, alwav
ceeping in view the fact lhat to th
leople belong the oflices and not t
my man or set of men.
In this canvass I have discusse
neasures and not nuon. I have riecop
tized the platform of principles c
he Democratic party and its tencli
ngs. I have recognized the fact ti
he various interests of this coin
ry, particularly the agricultural, d<
nand that we shall have a currene
the volume of which shall be suil
;ient to meet the demands of tradl
tnd that whilst the Governimue
mnust be supported that only an in
)ort duty sufficient to meet the v)
1enses of Government, ecoInomicall
idministered, shall be raised. Thi
t is wrong to decrease the volume C
he currency by accumulating in larg
murplus in the Treasury of th
United States, because by so (loin
rado is paralyzed in proportion t
the amount thus accunulated.
2ave opposed the wholesale pension
toted indiscriminately by Congress
md favor the pensioning only c;
those who were disabled in aetuN
ervice. I favor economy in the ex
enses of government. Much ha
)>on saved by the Democratic part.i
t great deal more can be saved.
avor giving to the Agricultura
nterests a cabinet officer whoso duit
t .shall be to look after anid promot
ho Agricultural interests of thi
~ountry. From the ground come
weorything to.suppmort niot only time Ag

When Agriculture fails the wheel
tre stopped, and this branch of in

ostered and pirotected by the Glovern

Remember, with a liberal suippoi
