DoMen Gather Figs of Thistles?
It is as reasoniable to expect figs from
thistles as to look for good results when
poor sees are pltted. If you p)lanlt an
aifr you cannot gather apricots, and
ifyuswpoor and old seeds you can
not have large and solid cabbage heads5,
nor round and regular tomIatoefs, nor
perfect and juicy (ea ntelouples. TIhe
moral of this is, Be sure yo(u get good
seeds, to avoid disapppointmIenit. Lan

ove the Uniited States, and~ vou cain get

A few (days amgo in going a circuitous
oute to Newberry in company with at
~riend we passed what is known as "the s
~toekade.'' We had heard of "the stock
d," but had never seen the institution ta
efore. The approach to "the stockade" ~
as "sticky." The buildings, so called, c
~orming a part and appertaining to the ~
~nlosure, are of very ancient architect
re, anid are ini an exceedingly dilapi- 1
lated condition. T wo structures twenty d
et apart, were used as abiding places
or the inmates, and as part of the wails
f the enclosure. The other parts at the
nds, and a short distance beyond the
2ouses are enclosed by a killd of lattice
vork-the apertures are not qnite large s
enough for a calf to pass through. The a
untrance is th:ough a rickety gate, mid- i,
svar b)etween the two structures for the
bipes. and between these two places t
tie quadlrupeds ba,k in the sunshine,
hiver in tihe rain, and wallow in thtei
filth and mire. We did not enter "tile
stockade," but we did get a glance at
the old partriiarebi staniding ini the door,
whom, to our miinda, presented somewhat
time a)pearanice of an ancient.Trk, tur
baed and not over pat ticuilar about
his person or habitue.
Oni last salesday, myself and a friend
whose circumference and attitude are
both greater than mine. (f drew 185 lbs
before breakfast) hence lie has a greater
ton nage, st arted for time CourtHlouse, and I
we grot there too. The horse we drove
belonged to the .Julge, and was destinied
for "'Foots bone-yard." The boys jeered
and cheered as we started out of town,
ad I did not blame them at all, for the
horse was of exceedingly light weight.
I, nuyself doubted serioniely if Bucephia
ns would make the trip. Friend Lee
thought he wonl. We had not got far1
before a fellow offered to bet that I and1
Lee would weigh more tha:n the horse
that was punllinIg ius. We didn't take the
bet. We wer.e afraid we'd loose. Bucep
halus did not travel as fast aa Jay-eye-4
see or Manude S.. still he had tile vim of
eiter and kept "pegging away." Lee
had only to walk around one bad place
ii the road, and eventunally we arrived
at thet Court IIouse on schedule time.
We took the first back street we came te,
avoiing the erowd., and came in by a
lank imovetment. We alighted, told Tomn
to f..ed thait ho4 rse well, the .Judge would
pay for it, and we felt happy and serene.

ng fine, especially early sowing. A
reat many of our farmers now regret
hat they didn't finish sowing their crop
f oats in the fall, as that sowing now
iromises an abundant harvest.
Owing to the abundance of rain the
ublic roads in this community are still
n a disagreeable condition for traveling.
Yhen the weather gets better we hope
ur overseers in this section will put the
ublic highways in "apple-pie order."
We learn that a great many of the
'oung people in the Mt. Pilgrim seetion
njoyed quite a pleasant time at Uncle
dam IIartman's residence on last Sat
irdny evening pulling candy and en
;ag'ng in an old time cake walk. We
lways enjoy such occasion., especially
hese sweet entertainments.
Messrs. S. L. Sheeley, E. M. Cook and
L. M. Counts attended the farmers' club
.t the Mt. Pilgrim Academy on last
Chursday evening. We would like to
sk the question why our farmers can't
rganize a club at the Excelsior Acade
ny where they could meet closer home
.nd discuss questions that might be of
,reat interest to them. These meetings
re certainly very interesting to all of
ur farmers, or at least should be.
We notice a great many of our farmers
ave already commenced hauling their
ertilizers. We have been informed
hat the demand this season will be
reater than our agents can supply.
)r farmers will have to strive harder
.id harder to make their manures at
ome and not depend so mueh on the
ertilizers. They can do it if they will
ut just try. This puts inc in mind of
,hat I heard an old negro say once.
le said "we poor negroes will never
ave anything as long as we rent the
ottom of land and then buy the soil to
ut on this bottom in order to make a
rop" We believe the old negro was
bout right. SIGMA.

to serve out their terms as ours do and
hence their number will run up rapiidly.
They have had as many in sixteen years
as we had mn thirty. Of all conntries in
Europe, tire one we hear least about is
Portugal. She has no Nihilists, no revo
lutions; she is not going to tight Rnssia
or annex Italy. She (hoes not force peo
ple to emigrate. E vidently she is worth;
a transient look, anid Noe] Ruthretn gives
you what you will enjoy, '-A peep into
Portugal." A lady whom fortune, fate
andl matrimony have linked with the
army of this great republhic tells urs, in
"A Lady's Account of Army Life in the
Far WVest," how sihe and those like her
manage to live at a frontier post, five
hundred miles from a dressnmaker, and a

The February issue of the Eelectic has
an excellent list of articles on a wide
variety of subjects. The Duke of Ar

school, "The Power of Loose Analog
ies," has awakened mutch discussion, and
is sure to get stinging rejoinders. M. I
Charles Yriante's opetning paper on
Cxsar Borgia is a most picturesque pre
sentation of auniqutely wicked character.
"Irish Secret Societie:" is an interesting
article germane to the interest of the
day. Thre criticism of Karl Marx's great
book "Capital," is a vigorours analysis
worth reading by all interested ini so
cialistic problems. Archibald Geikie
writes on "'Charles Parwin" ini a most
appreciative spirit, and prresenits the,
spirit of Darwin's work atid life with
graphic force. The paper 0on "Schools of U
