Too Many Insane Persons in Maine.
BANGOo, [Special.]-The situation at
the Maine Insane Hospital at Augusta is
becoming serious. The institution was
crowded with patients two years ago,
and a bill for the c.tahllishment of a new
asylum at. Bangor was introduced in the
Legislature, but it refused to make any
appropriation for the purpose. In the
asylum are 678 patients, and the number
is increasing rapidly. The authorities
are at their wits' end to know what to
do with the next batch of lunatics, all
the cells being occupied, while many pa-
tients are obliged to sleep on cots in the
hallways.

Maj. Daniel Re-elected.
RICHnMOND, VA., [Special.J-John W.
Daniel was unanimously re-elected Sena-
tor from Virginia 1)by the Legislature.

Colonel Polk Interviewed About the
Indianapolis Meeting.


Something Like the Sub-Treasury
Bill Seems to Work in Russia.


WASHINoGToN, D. C.-The Post has
the following interview with Col. Polk,
on his return to the city from Indianapo-
lis:
Col. L. L. Polk was being congratula-
ted at the National on his re-election to
the Presidency of the National Farmers'
Alliance at the late Indianapolis conven-
tion "The partisan press, as usual,
misrepresented our meeting," he said.
"Was the.Indian.poHll meeting har-
nionious l
"Thoroughly so; and it will be pro-
.ductive of vast benefit. There was no
effort to carry the Order into any politi-
cal party. The Ocala demands were in-
dorsed unanimously by all of the thirty-
four States represented, and also by the
delegate' s from the F. M. B. A which
practically merges it. and the Alliance
into one harmonious organization."
"Is there to be no political action,
then next year."
"Well, the meeting of February 22d
will decide about that. It will be a
grand convention, composed of twenty-
five delegates at large for each order or
organization represented, and one addi-
tional delegate for every 10,000 members
of each order. The delegates at large
will be selected by the organizations, but
the others by a direct popular vote. The
convention will probably be held at St.
Louis or Cincinnati.
"I don't care to anticipate its action,
but something of importance will come
out of it. The old parties seem to be on
the verge of coalescing. Read the edito-
rials in Ihe Democratic newspapers fa-
voring the returuof John Sherman to the
Senate. Doesn't that look like coalition ?
I suggest that the Democrats should
nominate next year Cleveland and Har-
rison, and the Republicans Harrison and
( leveland. In that way Wall street
w uld be certain of compassing its ends,
for.both parties are under its domi-
nation."

SEEMS TO WORK IN RUSSIA.
The Charleston News and Courier has
the following despatch from Washington,
D. C.: Consul General Crawford, of St.
Petersburg, has sent to the department
of State a report on the system now in
use in Russia (resembling certain plans
incorporated in the platform of the Far-
iners' Ahliance in this country) of making
advances on farmers' grain stored in
ware housess or delivered to officials of
the r,. '-"' ._if the country.
3I ~ says the advances on
a 'com-
Russia, authorized b nhisry
finance. They must not exceed 60 per
cent. of the value of the grain at the
nearest market place, except in cases of.
loans of six weeks or less, when an 80 per
cent. advance may be obtained. The
usual interest is 6 per cent., payable in
advance with further small charges on
account of a sinking fund and commis-
sions to railroads. The loans range from
six months to one year, and if they are
not repaid at their expiration the grain is
sold at auction by the railroad company.
Grain may also be sold if in danger of
deterioration, or if it is feared that the
value will not cover the loan and expen-
ses of storage. The railroad company s
bear the entire responsibility for the loan
by the bank, and are requiredd to meet
their liabilities within seven days of set-
tiement-of a loan or-auction sale of grain.
In calculating the percentage of advance
the cost of transportation to the point of.
destination is charged as part of the loan.
No distinction is made between farmers
and middlemen in making advances, the
loan being made only on the grain.
In conclusion the consul general sa )s:
"This scheme .went into effect June
14-26, 1888, and at the present day
it is generally adopted throughout the
country, and business is carried on under
it on a very large scale. I khouid also
add that the scheme gives great satisfac-
tion to the farnier', very many of who:n
declare it has been an essential feature of
successful farming in Russia."

The Alliance in Louisiana is doing as
well as it can under the circumstances
Its growth has been obstructed somewhat
by unavoidable circumstances, yet the
brethren are in. earnest, and are deter-
mined to place the Order on vantage
ground in the near future. It is a diffi-
cult State to organize, and those who
have stood in the front have had a hard
struggle. Within the past year a State
organ, The Vidctte, has been started, and
a most excellent paper it is, which will
dou1'tless aid materially in the prosecution
of the work of reform. The Alliance in
this State are fighting the lottery swindle,
and as a. result are meeting with all the
opposition that a moneyed corporation
can bring to bear. It is expected that
the Order will succeed, which will place
it on i' high road to permanent pros-
perity.

That was a very good answer given a
gentleman by ex-PresidentEliasCarr,ofN.
C.when the man remarked that such Ilg-
isla'ion as the Al iance proposed would
make hirnmct only 80 cents for a dollar.
Bro. Carr said that wouldn't be as bad as
the farmer getting only fifty cents on the
dollar for products of the farm.

At a mass-meeting of 20,000 working-
men held at Dammen, Norway, resolu-
tions were passed, "demanding that the
government should buy the land of the
country, distribute it among the laborers
and advance them the money necessary
to work it.

GENERAL IMPROVEMENT-

The Outlook Steadily Grows
Brighter.
The Manufacturers' Record, of Balti-
more, of December 12, in reviewing thb
industrial progress of the South, says:
"The past week has shown a very de-
cided increase in the number of industrial
enterprises organized and projected
throughout the South, and a careful
study of the whole situation and of the
plans that are being matured for many
others seems to indicate a tendency to
a more general activity than has been
seen for many months. It is true that
there is a considerable complaint of dull-
ness and slow collections in some places,
but the outlook apparently shows that
the South, in sympathy with the whole
country, is.gradually entering upon a
period of renewed activity, the full force
of which will not, however, be seen un-
til after the first of the year, and possibly
not until spring. Among the enterprises
reported for the week, but by no means
all of them, are a $100,000 plow manu-
racturing company at Temple, Texas; in-
crease of capital stock of tinplate and
steel companyat Savernake, Va., from
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000; a $200,000 de-
velopment company at Chester, S. C.;
tobacco factory at Winston, N. 0.;
$20,000 ice company at Harriman, Tenn.:
$10,000 planing mill company at Pen-
sacola, Fla.; $20,000 brick company at
Cloverport, Ky. ; sash and door factories
at Rocky Mount, N. C., and Augusta,
Ga.; large lumber mill to be be built at
Georgetown, S. C., by Western people;
$120,000 quarrying company in Virginia;
$100,000 furniture company at Parkers-
burg, W. Va.; $25,00 coal and coke
company at Farnum, W. Va.; electric
light company at Paragould, Ark. ; $50,-
000 phosphate company at Bartow,Fla.;
$50,000 brick company at Ocala, Fla. ;
$300,000 to be spent by Jacksonville,
Fla., in securing deep water; a canal at
Port Tampa 3,000 feet long and 25 feet .
deep to improve harbor facilities; a shoe
factory in Atlanta; $500,000 at Atlanta
for improvement of water works ;a $400,-
000 autom-jtic sprinkler company at Co-
lumbus, Ga.; 100 coke ovens at Central
City, Ky. ; extensive lumber mill- shingle
mill, etc., in Louisiana; a $500,000 and a
$25,000 manufacturing company in Bal-
timore; the purchase for $82,800 of a site
in Baltimore for cable railway power-
house; a $25,000 agricultural implement
company at Buckeystown. Md.; electric
light works and enlargement of water
works at Cantonsville, Md.; a $300,000
sulphuric acid company at Blacksburg,
S. C. ; a $75,000 coal mining company at
Coal Creek, Tenn.; $17,000 lumber corn-'
pany in West Virginia; a $200,000 coal
and coke company in West Virginia; a
$200,000 coal and coke company at Fair-
mont, W. Va., and a $100,000 coal a
coke dompn a '. ~ *0 1, This
summary, which, as already : said,
-no"r include the 'wiole -Kist of -eliteraocs
aIT wh ci.-.uvAI
increase from week to week. There is
every reason to expect that 1892 will be a
year long to be remembered for the ac-
tivity in industrial and trade interests,
and if this prove, true, the South will in-
evitably share in this renewed pros-
perity."

THE COTTON CROr

Complaints of Low Prices Come Up
From the Plantations.
WASHINGTON, D. C.-Cotton receipts
of December to the Department of Agri-
culture relate to the average prices on
plantations. Complaint of unremuner-
ative values is general and declarations
are frequent that the crop does not re-
turn cost of production. A feeling of
discouragement pervades the report, and
a disposition to reduce is expressed.
Plantation price, which is the actual rate
for cotton sold at gin, averages 7.3 cents
per pound. For the five years preceed-
ing the range was from 8.1 to 8.6, and
the average nearly 8.4 cents.
This decline is echoed in records of
exportation, which averaged in October
a value of 8 9 cents against 10.11 cents
for October of last year, a drop of 12 per
cent.
State averages are as follows: Vir-
ginia, 7 cents; North Carolina, 7.4;
South Carolina, 7.4. An almost unex-
empting season for harvesting is report-
ed, with picking and ginning and mark-
eting far advanced. While fibre is at
many points short, it is clean and of
good color.

English Views of Harrison's Message.
A cablegram from London says: In
commenting iipon President Harrison's
message, the Post notices with satisfac-
tion the absence of signs of bluster tow-
ard foreign nations, and says that if the
message meets the idea of the President's
party, Blaine's chances have seriously di-
minished.
The Daily News says. "The Presi-
dent's message leaves nothing to be de-
sired either in tone or temper. Mr. Har-
rison is less exasperating than Blaine and
consequently more stateamenlike. He
would not speak so tenderly of recip-
rosity if his protection policy was a suc-
cess."
The Standard says: "President Har-
rison's message is not notable for its large
devotion to foreign affairs. This show-
ing is due to Blaine's fidgety activity.
The President glides with his customary
bland optimism over several matters,
hardly doing credit to American diplo.
matists." -
"It must be admitted that the figures
he quotes, although they do not justify
the sanguine hopes of the authors of the
McKinley tariff law, are sufficient to
cause some surprise to adverse critics
both at home and abroad "

A Whole Town Burned.


SILVER CITY, N. M [Special.]-At
5:30 this morning fire wai discovered in
a vacant frame hotel building in the town
of Pinos Altos. Not a drop of water
i.is accessible and tile whole town was
soon in flames. Men, women and chil-
dren turned out.to fight tihe tire, but the
dry buildings burned like tinder, des-
troying nearly the eutire town. Only
two business houses were saved. The
loss will reach $100,00). Insurance light.
The fire is thought to have been incendi.

FLORIDA'S TRAGEDY.


A Whole Family Was Extermi-
nated.


Defenseless Women and Children
Brutally Murdered by Ruth-
less Hands, Looking
for the Fiends.


JACKSONVILLE, FLA., [Special ] -The
latest developments in the horrible trag-
edy at New Smyrna, in which Mrs. L.
D. Hatch (formerly of Maine), her young
son, Miss Adelaide H. Bruce, of New
York, and Frank Packwood, Jr aged
four, only make the case more mysterious
than ever.
The scene of the murder is a beautiful
and romantic spot, seven miles below
Smyrna, or half way between Smyrna and
Oak Iill. A grewsome fatality seems to
have clung to it, for it was here that the
Shives family-father, son, wife and
baby-were murdered by the Indians in
the war of 1856. The house where this
later day murder was perpetrated is on
the site of those ruins. It stands on a
shell mound thirty feet above the Hills-
boro river, and commands a magnificent
view of the two graceful sweeps of that
stream.
WHERE THE DEED WAS DONE.
On this mound are two houses; one
house of two rooms was used for a din-
ing room and kitchen. A house of the
same size twenty steps away is where the
deed was. committed. These houses are
shaded and surrounded by ancient ce-
dars, fir trees, oaks, palmettos and palms,
back or west of the house is a dense ham-
mock with a flat pine and beyond.
Saturday at 10 o'clock in the morn-
ing, the murder was discovered and a
horrible picture it was. On her back by
the window in a pool of blood, Mrs.
Hatch lay with a pistol ball wound on
the inside corner of her left eve.
Her face was blackened with powder.
Th, other bodies lay ear her. When
the crash came she had evidently been
near the window. When the murderer
entered, her little son; frenzied with
fright, had probably fled as a child would
and had sought refuge in the bed clothes
of a lounge at the end of the room. He
was torn from these, shot over the left
eye and his throat cut from ear to ear.
THEIR AWFUL WORK COMPLETE.
On the bed lay the body of Miss Bruce,
shot through the face and her head terri-
bly bruised by blows from a gun stock,
; the shattered remains of which showed
the force of the murderous blows. She
had been beaten all over the body.
Nearby lay pretty Frank PackwooiLwiith

w ood had gone-to Orndo
_r f-J,-he e -. The

-4;' .f one hundred arm
have been out since Saturday morning,
but no trace of the murderers has yet
been secured. It "vas first thought that
the crime was the work of tramps, but
this delusion was subsequently dispelled
by finding a trail leading around the
yard to the north and then through the
hammock, south to the road, a path that
none could travel unless he was familiar
with'the country. Mr. Packwood has
suspicions, and will give them to the
coroner's jury only, when it is expected
that several arrests will be made.


THOMAS INTEREST HAS CONTROL


Of the Richmond Terminal and a
Secret Meeting is Held Without
Final Action.
NEV% YORK CITY, [Special.]-A report
was prevalent that the Thomas interest
in Richmond Terminal .Company had
been steadily absorbing stock for some
time, and that having acquired a con-
trolling interest they had notified the
parties now in control that they desired
to call a meeting for a special election
according to the by-laws of the company.
This report was confirmed when it was
learned thatasecret meeting had been held,
and the meeting adjourned without ac-
tion to meet again the following day.
After the meeting Directors Thomas,
Wormser, Moor and McGee held a con-
ference. The result could not be learned.


North Carolina's Seats,
Wednesday evening was devoted to
seating of the Congressmen and the North
Carolina Congressmen did fairly well,
considering the chance game. A Wash-
inrgt 11 correspondent states:
Mr. Henderson, of North Carolina
delegat-on, was very lucky. Heretofore
he has to get well towards the back
rows, but he secured a seat in the front
row almost immediately in front of the
Speaker. Col. Cowles, of the same State
fared much worse. He was among the
last reached and selected a place away
round in the extreme right hand east
corner of the Democrat c side. He has
been in that part of the hl.l before.
Messrs. Bunn and Branch, of North Caro-
lina, were fairly lucky. They will sit
beside each other a little in front of
Messrs. Wise and Lester,of Virginia, and
Mr. Crawford, of North Carolina, is in
the same locality just in tire rear of the
seat reserved for Mr. Buchanan of Vir-i'
ginia. Virginia and North Carolina
members are pretty well bunched on that
side of the hall, and where a majority of
the Democrats are located. In their vi
cinity, also, is Mr. Wilson, of West
Virginia, who was among the last called,
but he, however, is clear over against
the wall, on the outer aisle. The others
are further out and have better locations,.

Preached Against Free Masons.


WAsHINGTON, PA., [Special.]-The
Rev. W. L. Weaver has resigned as pas-
tor of the Presbyterian church of Bur-
gettstown. He attended the meeting of
Presbyterian General Assembly and ob
tainted from a brother preacher a book
purporting to be an exposure of Free
lMasonry. Mr. Weaver read the book,
and became fanatical on the subject. In
a sermon he violently attacked the Ma-
n,,Rs. His congregation, which includes
several members of the Masonic order,.
severely censured him, and he resigned,


BILL ARP'S LOGIC.


He Says Every Man Owes His An
cestors.


He Speaks of His Book Just from
the Press, and Talks of
Diamonds and Pearls.

Dr. Jonson said to Boswell that every man
was in debt to his ancestors. Ju debt for
science and art, discovery and intention, for
improved methods o' agriculture and bett r'
modes of living, for hist ry a nd poetry san
romances, and a thousand things too tedious
to mention And as we ean't pay the debt
to those who are gone before we should pay
it to those who are to come after, pay it to
posterity. "Theref re," sri,' he, "'very man
should do something for the c-mfort or the
pleasure of those who survive him. He
should wiite a book, or preach a sermon, or
plant a tree, or a vine or leave beh;lid him t.
good exa'iple." I nwas ruminating about
this when I raw the bushels of ap les that
were gather d from the trees I planted many
yeais ago. and that wi!l continue to bear
long after I am dead. So much for that. It
is not uncommon nor is it generally unselfish.
For forty years I have bc n planting trees
and vines to please Mr's. Arp and her poster-
ity, and my debt on that line is paid.
And now I have written a book and the
Constitution Publishing Cimpany has placed
it before the Iublic for better or worse. Mrs.
Arp told me a long time ago that eome of
my letters were better and some worse, and
so in making up this book I invoked herm bet-
ter judgment, nud she says she tried to win.
now the wheat from the ":ha IT, but as there
was not quite enough wheat to make a book,
someone chaff will be found in the pages.
"However," seid she, "I think the beautiful
cover will make nu for that. It is the bind
ing that sells a book nowadays. It looks "e
pretty on the par'or taUio.'
"Just s-i," said I. I have long observe
that it is fine dressing that makes the lady.
It doesn't matter what her contents ae pro-
vided she is gilded and garnished on the out-
side." Mrs. Arp looke t at me with one of
her looks, and I continued my broken re-
marks by saying: "I allhide, of course, to
these fashionable ladies who are stuffed and
1wdded at the milliner'r until you can't tell
where cotton ends and flesh and blood begin."
"What business have you to know?" said
she.
"None-none at all, said I. It's all hear-
say, and it may be a mistake-a dlnder.
Women love ornament by nature and I love
to see them arrayed in beautiful garments
that come high and hang low. If I were
rich you should wear d amincl and pparls;
and dress in silk velvet andi Si orian fn s,
bnt as I am not rich, I don"
like to see any lady dress finer Ih n you
do, but still I don't consider it a sin f woman to dress fine and wear jeIAery i' she
can afford it. You remember that Isaac
sent Rebecca a p itr of ea riinig that weighed,
half a shekel each auid cost about seventy five
cents."
Extravagant lover!" sai Mrs. Arp.
"And you know," I continued, "'that the
fields are dressed with flowo'-s and ihe hliev-
ens with stars and the birds with plumage.'
"Yes," said she, "the male birds are very
fine-the rooster and Ct.e peacock, for in:
sa -ro-,ci have to go in their every-
day clothes and de all the work and scratecr
for w the males go struttihn
at.,i6" in their fi. ..leLabr, Dan..u.-nilbugnin'-
mnoment-Mrs. A 'in .' 'li'ti: ,
arcinient. But I rallied to my posi ions ad
a .Just so, just. si; exactly, and it is lie.
bcus.'lirds are oT tue earth earthy, and so
man. but won.au was not made out of dcst'
sha didn t evolute from the animal-Dame
Nature finished up with her and quit-
"Her 'prentice hand khe tried on man,
And then sha made the lasses, oh."
Mrs. Arp smiled one ofher smiles and said
"That will do now. Burns wrote beautiful
poetry an I loved all womankind. If he hedl
been faithful t9 one it 'would have been bet-
ter for him and for her. But whit atout
your beok? Do you expect to make any
money out of it, or are you just pub'hhing
it for fame or for fun?'
A little money," said I, "akttle fame and
some fun You know that the author of a
b ok don't get much money. I hope to reel-
ize 25 cents a copy and to sell enough to keep
you in missionary rconuy. One-copy a wee':
will do that, won't itt"
She nev, r said anything. She seemed to
b3h leading a pap'r-th3 inis-ionary paper
She must have read so l thing tender auid
pathetic, for suddenly the look I at mie an'i
remarked: "Well, I hope tin book will se3l
and bi ing you enough money to make you
easy anId comifurtable. If tha people hike
your letters I shoulit think the. would like
the bo >k, for your best ones are all i there,
sud tho illustrations lie'p out Ihe stories.
'Uncle Barker's Fight with hIe BlaclI smith'
is a splendid story, and so is t e 'S.irrel tHair'
and tne chapter-oin lmusc, and thr" 'Sa'atn-
nah Cousiu' and the 'Gnor4ia Cracker and
you driving th, carrylog. Any one of then
is worth the subsbri, ti;i price. I have half
a mind to take an agei cy myself and sell the
book. It looks hard for the author to g-t
only 25 cents and the agent who sells the
book gets more, but I suppose that is busi-
ness "1
"It is hard on the bo k agent too," said
I, "for they get none of hi fanm anmid none
of the fun and are ever invited to stay to
dinner."'
She continued to comfort me with hopeful
remarks and same critical praises of my ran-
domn literature and a tender reminder that
'Auno hDonini" was gaining on us both, and
soon, very soon, we would have to lay down
the needle and the pen and depend on others
for a support. Ati then she began to talk
about Carl and Jessie and wondered how
many days they c .uld stay when they came
home Christmnas. i-hea soon became recon.
ciled when the older child n left us, but she
can't give up these two-the last of tho lit-
ter. It nearly breaks her heart. What in-
tehne, anxious interest did these mothers feel
in the daily accounts of little Julia Stovall's
case Weho r'o you wi sh to have hert' said
I. 'I don't know," said my wife. "I feel
as' sorry for both thes aunts. I know how
they love her. I do wi'h it coUld be so that
Jurtli' wou'd divide her time with them. I
wish they wouihl all mi -e fr:en'.ts j st for the
child's sake.''
And so when I enima home wit'i he morn-
ing paper and saw hr r lonk i f inquiry, I told
her it was all settle I jst nas slh wislihl, ani

ABSO LTELY PURE


BANQUET OF THE BARRISTERS.

A Feast of Eloquence and a Flow
of Wit.
COLUMBnrA, S. C., [Spceial.1--At the
morning session of the State Bar Associa-
tion two addresses were read, "Prcpara'-
tion for the Bar," written by T. M. Ray- '
sor and read by John P. Thomas, Sr.,
and "The Ethics of the Profession," by
Mr. Woods.
Committees were appointed, one to
consider and report on the formation of
the County Bar Asociation, and the
other to consider the changes in tinie and
place ef holding the annual meeting.
In the evening the annual address, pre-
pared by Gen. Edward McCrady, was
read by lion. Charles Richardson Miles,
orator presents locutus est eloquenter pro
oratore absent.
The amuual banquet of the Associat'oa
was given at night at the Grand Central
Hotel. It was an exceedingly enjoyable
affair, every o of the speeches being
not only eloquent but brilliant, as all
lawyers' speeches are, which way of stat-
ing the fact is patented by this Bureau. I
D. S. Henderson eloquently introduc-
ed the Hon. J. S. Cochran, who spoke
eloquently on the State of South Caro-
lina.
Col. G. W. Croft eloquently introduc-
ed Col. Joseph Ganahl, of Georgia, who
spoke eloquently on the subject of Geor-
gia and a good deal about South Caro-
lina.
Mr. Culp, of Union, eloquently intro-
duced the eloquent Judge Hudson, who
spoke eloquently of the other members of
the judiciary.
The Hon. J. S. Verner eloquently in.
produced the Hon. Samuel Dibble, wh"'
eloquently responded to the toast, "The
United States."
The e'oquent Press was announced by
the eloquent W. C. Benet, the response
being by the eloquent M. F. Ansel, of
Greenville.
The eloquent young member of the
Bar was introduced by the eloquent old
member of the B ir, the Hon. C. Rich-
ardson Miles, the response being by the
young and eloquent F. hI. Weston, of
C(olumnnbia.
- The young and interesting ,oireural As-
senibly was ..Ti ". --' -.' 1 t y.th, .
Uloqueut solicitor, J. M. Johrnron, the re-
spouse being by the aloqeaut Speaker
Jones.
qThe eloquent Bar of South Carolina
".'T introduced by the eloquent D. B.
fmim, i, the response being by the elo-
quent C. A. Doug'ass, of Columbia.
The silent, absent and beautiful wo-
men were introduced by the gallant and
eloquent Ernest Gary, of Edgcfield, the
response for the silent, absent and beau-
xtiful being by the eloquent C. C. Sims,
'f- Barnwell.
After the regular toasts the eloquent
retiring president introduced the newly
elected president, Col. S. P. Hamilton,
bo'h of which gentlemen made eloquent
speeches, as lawyers always do, as above
promised.
The Bar Association then adjourned
about half past 1 o'clock.
The special incidents of the feast were
that when Judge Wallace's name was
mentioned by Mr. Culp, of Union, the
I Iouso rang with applause:.
which was repeated when Judcge
Hudson arose to speak. Taking it all in
all, everybody is agreed that it was the
most admirably conducted and
th,:roughly enjoyable aud enjoy-
ed banquet of the Bar in many years.

A New Attorney General.
COLUMBIA, S. C [Special.]-At one
o'clock Wednesday a joint assembly was
held to elect an Attorney General to fill
out the unexpired term of Hon. Y. J.
Pope. Senator Keitt nominated Mr. J.
L. McLaurin, of Marlboro; Mr. Hlughes,
of Charleston, nominated Ernest Gary;
Mr. Kirkpatrick, of Kershaw, nominated
the IHon. D. A. Townsend,of Union; Mr.
Sarratt, of Spartancurg, nominated the
Hon. Stanyare Wilson. Each of the
nominations .was seconded by several
members.
The first vote taken resulted: Town-
send 40, McLaurin 46, Wilson 4, Gary
40; total 130; necessary to a choice 66.
The second ballot: Townsend 34, Mc-
Laurin 52, Wilson 1, Gary 45; total 132;
necessary to a choice 67. The third and
final vote stood: Townsend 8, McLaurin
77, Wilson 1, Gary 43; total 129, neces-
sary for a choice 65. McLaurin vwas
therefore declared elected
Youngest Member of Congress.
John W. Bailey, of Texas, the young-
est member of Congress, is thus describ-
ed by the Washington Post: "A young
man of a strikingly nob'e face and corn-
manding presence s'ood chatting with
friends in the lobby of the Metropolitan,
and was the observed of all observers.
His features were refined and almost as
regular as could be chiselled by an artist;
eyes deep blue and a wonderfully hand-
some suit of jet black hair, worn very
long. That, together with his soft felt
hat of expansive brm, was enough to
tell that he hailed from Dixie, and pic-
turesquely attractive li Vas Mr. Buai-
ley is 28 e'ars old, we\. to-do, and ai na-
tivet of Mississippi.

The President Pardoned Them.
WABsmINOTON, I). C., [Special.- Tlhie
president Ihas granted a pardon t. John
F. Weantllers,convicted in Georgia of vio-
lating' tihe internal revenue laws. and also
to Bern Wright, convicted in T'liinessee
of violating thIe postal laws.
The devices adopted by thie p:utin s t .
lihe ballots in the election in C'olor''h'.
were: Republican, eagle; Dl)ne, :i,.,

pie's, roadside cottage; People's Non

SUNBEAMS,

William Jackson, of Ellsworth, Me, h a '
lost six wives within the past 55 years,
the last having died a few weeks since.
It is stated that in 1890 the number of
persons killed in India by snakes was
21,412, while' the number of snakes
slaughtered was 510,659.
The mandolin, banjo, and glee clubs
of Harvard University will give public
performances during a Western tour in
the last week of the year.
It appears that Sir Edwin Arnold tick-
led the fancy, raised the pride, and
touched the heart of the Bostonians by
saying that they speak the English speech
better than the people of any other
American city.
At Santa Rosa, in the republic of Uru-
guay, 200,000 vine shoots were planted
this year. Next year there will be twice
as many planted. They grow luxuriant-
ly and bear abundantly in that part of
Uruguay, and are profitable to their own-
ers.
The Australian city of Melbourne,
which was founded less than 50 years
ago, has already a population of nearly
half a million, and stands fifth among
the cities of the British empire. It is now
a great shipping port, and its slum quar-
ter is small.
It appears by the report of the treasu-
rer of Yale College, which has just been
published, that the gifts received by the
college during the year covered by the
report amounted to the large sumn of
$343,395. The gifts ranged from $100
to $50,000.
In Athens, Ga a system of electric
railway and a system of electric fire alarm
have been established this year. In the
corning year a new system of street pav-
ing and a new system of -waterworks are
to be established. The introduction of
small factories of many kinds is to be en-
couraged there.
Judge Crisp's father and mother were
members of a Savannah dramatic com-
pany in the days before the war, and the
future Speaker, then a youth, sometimes
appearedd on the stage in minor roles.
f r. eoULiro, .nrin 5... .^, im eth
.,bout ten years ago, was an actor of
promise, and had at one time been con-,
nected with Jno. T. Ford's company in
Baltimore. Judge Crisp is said to have-
had a fine stage presence, but however
that may be he is certainly a prominent
figure now on the national stage.
It is not very often that a preacher of
national reputation is met at a published
appointment by a congregation of one.
But that is what happened to the famous
Parson Br.wnlow-the Swift of a provin-
cial age and place. It was 'before the
war, when he was about equally venom-
ous against the Baptists and abolition-
ists. The fame of his controversy with
both filled several States. Somehow,
though, when he stepped into the pulpit
of a Methodist church in Clarksville,
Tenn., notoriously a Methodist town, he
found himself with just one auditor. The
sexton even had gone away after open-
ing the doors and ringing the bell. The
parson looked about him for a minute,
then lifted his hands and said, "Let us
pray." The prayer was long and fervent
but nobody came. At the close of it the
minister sang a hymn. Still there were
no more listeners. Drawing a long
breath the preacher said, "Sister, we will
be dismissed," then repeated the bene-
diction, grabbed his hat and overcoat,
and took the next train home.

A CALL TO COTTON PLANTERS


To fMeet and Consider the Reduction
Of Cotton Acreage.
MONT'roomen, ALA., [Speclal.]-Com-
mis iot er Lane, of the Department of
Agriculture, of Alabama, has issued <
circulair to every State Agricultural Com-'-.-
missioner in cotton growing States for
the purpose of calling a convention of
farmers of the cotton growing States, for
the purpose of considering the expedien-
cy and practicability of decreasing the
acreage of cotton in the South.
-e says:
"Being deeply impressed with the
conviction that this demand is most im-
pelative and action ought not to be de-
layed, I respectfully ask immediate con-
sideration and through you, of cotton
growers, in reference to the subject and
the urgent necessity of an early meeting
for ilhe purpose of discussing and, if pos-
sible, arriving at some conclusion that
will accomplish the desired result."
Ife names tihe city of Montgomery,
Ala., as the most available place, and
Wednesday, tile Gth of January, 1892, as
the time of the meeting of the conven-
tion.
11 Colored Man Becomes a Priest.
Cha, R. Uncles, a carefully educated
young colored man, was ordained by
Cardinal (ibbons last week to !he Cath-
olic priesthood, the attendant cere-
monies 'iing celebrated in Boston, and
the occasion gained special moment from
the fact that this is the first ordination
in this country of a colored man to or-
ders in thIe Roman Catholic church.
Influenza in Nashville.
NAsniVIL,.r:, Tl'.:NN., (Special.]-Influ-

This being Christmnls evo, we take

Who can 1.e otherwise than j-yfu'

their flight into eternity, carryi-g 1.'

;i-, fullness of time will be swallowed
up into an endless eternily, and yct
,ol; there never will be a gladder time
thiu Christmas day, when the "mnornii
g stars sang together for joy," and
ihe sweetest singers in heaven pro-
itlimed peace and salvation to an
erstwhile sincunrsed world. The ad-
ve-nt of the Son of Gd brought" peace
on earth, good will to men," and from
ihat blessed day to this )od has in
do(cd reigned, and the heart hears the-
niause music listened to by those shep-
h,-rds on the plains of Bethlehem, and
theeye of faith sees the great Iigli
V iest sitting at the right hand o0 God

Ti i' is a happy (lday for the chil-

ihat" Santa Claus goes through the

they should not be disappointed. The
Great Santa Claus gave us the best
:ift in heaven in the person of His
Son, and henceforti we nre the sons

LFMANON, Levy Co., Fla,
Editor Times-Democrat.
I see from your paper last week
pennedd the dono
turned the prisoners loose. Now I
- -t.rnk-trat--very strange conduct,
and a big mistake on the part of our
boarl, and I, as a resident of Lovy
county, wish record my protest agdnst
puch conduct.
Are we to go to the expense of pay
Ing a judge, site's attorney, and grand
jury to t'y tne law breakers, and
scarcely have their shadows left the
limits of the town when the county
board goes to the prison, opens the
door, and tell, the prisoners to "get,"
which their sale to the highest bidder
atniunts to? What justice! No won-
tier our court duckeis are crowded.
F. does seem iike making a "farce of
oiar courts and putting a premium on
rimne." I cai uot, find words strong
eanugh to express my feeling and to
ondemnn such conduct.
I have heard Judge Finley, and
,:raind juries on former occasions de,
plure the great increase of crime; and
nto wonder, when the people know that
they will not be punished. It we do
inot punnih the men wh.) have been
tried and convicted according to law,
what is the nse of going to thie expense
of having courts? Why not now pull
thera down, rather than buill new
ones?
I am in favor of thorough, efficient
courts, a new court house that will
ISpire "confidence," aud at the -anie
,'ine be a terror to eyil doers. I would
jclike to see a new court house that
n-- 'oii(l be a credt" to our county, ini
>.ace of the ori \~ye have with its win-
diaa stuffed full of rags; but first and
l'nht give us j::t;ci'. if the nindaite has
to be issued from a "barn.". Theiii'

No other application compares with it in efficacy.
-This well-known remedy has stood the test of

TheFai ure
Of the kidneys and liver to properly remove the lac-
tic or uric acid from the system, results in
Rheumatism
This acid accumulates in the fibrous tissues, particu'
larly in the joints, and causes inflammation and the
terrible pains and aches, which are more agonizing
every time a movement is made.
The Way to Cure
Rheumatism is to purify the blood. And to do this
take the best blood purifier.

DIED IN A KEELEY INSTITUTE.

A Builder Receives One Injection in
Hot Springs and Then Dies.
NEWPORT, ARK., [Special.]-The sud-
den death of a citizen of this place last
Saturday at Hot Springs will probably
bring the Keely cure for drunkenness
into court.
The man was H. I. Johnson, a contract-
or and builder. He had been addicted
strongly to drink, but broke off two
years ago, and had not tasted any whis-
key until about four weeks ago,
hIe was drunk for days and last Friday
lie was taken by his wife and friends to
Hot, Springs to the Keely Institute.
They stepped inside and were' met by
two men. One was addressed as Dr.
Huntington and the other as Dr. Steph-
ens. Jtl.hnson's friend explained the vis-
it to the springs, and the doctor propos-
ed to begin work at once. Johnson said
to him: "If you care mie I will give you
$1,000."
The doctor had no doubt as to a cure.
lie would allow Johnson to drink whis-
key dutil he got tired of it and in the
course of the conversation a glass of
whiskey was given to Johnson which he
drank. Dr. Stephens then injected
something in his arm. The patient was
taken into a room and put on a bed. In
a few minutes 'he turned to his friend
who sat, near him, and said:
"I feel that all of my exterior is con-
tracting. Is that the way a fellow feels
when lie is dying?"' Being told that it was
not, he turned his face awny and was soon
asleep., His friend left him and went
first to the Post Office and then to the
hotel for dinner. in a few inx minutes word
was brought to him that Johnson was
dead.
A coroner's jury was summoned, a
post mortemn held, and a verdict rendered
that Johnson died of lung congestion.
'I his verdict is not satisfactory, as it is
known that Johnson never was affected
with lung trouble. The case will prob-
ably go to the courts.
MILWAUKEE IS WIDE AWAKE.

She Will Deluge Washington With
Beer to Get the- Demo-
cratic Convention.
MILWAUKEE, WjS., [Special.]--A
hundred citizens signed their names to a
guarantee fund of $100,000 to pay the
expenses of thie Democratic National
Convention, should it be secured for
Milwaukee. A booming committee has
been selected and hotel quarters secured
in Washington. Milwaukee will make a
big effort to secure the prize, and the
representatives, who arc to present the
figures to the National Committee at its
meeting next month, will go to Wash-
ington in style.
Fach member of the committee of one
hundred will wear a dark suit with cream-
colored trimmings, and one of the big
'breweries will send ia car lo.d of beer to
the capital for free distribution. An
architect who examined lhe Exposition
building reported that there would be a
seating capacity of 22.000, with standing
room for 5,000, and 48 delegation rooms.
Twenty thousand dollars will be spent in
refitting the building.
EDMUNDS IS RETAINED.

Vermont's Ex-Senator Has Charge of
Davidson's Case in the
U. S. Senate.
A..Ni S C., [Special.]--Ex-United
si ,it,_u. in,.' Edmunds, of Vermont, is
at Aiken for his health, and has been
here for some time.
For thle past few weeks he has been
busily engaged in studying the case of
Mr. Davidson, of Florida, who is con-
testing Senator Call's seat in the United
State's Senate.
Senator Edmunds has been retained by
Mr. Davidson; and it is said he will do
his utmost to convince the Senate that
Call should be unseated for Davidson,
who Edmunds believes is entitled to the
seat.
Senator Edmunds positively refuses to
go into the merits of the case or to say
anything about it, and expressed great
surprise that it had been ascertained that
he had been retained as as council for
Davidson.
He has been in conference with Mr.
Davidson, but all that has been said has
been private and confidential, und he will
not reveal the nature of what has trans-
pired between them.

How About Your Mother.


Scrofula or Kings Evil is the most stubborn of all Skin af.
fections, Whether inherited or otherwise, it is a blood disease
and cannot be permanently cured by anything but S. S. S.

A GRATEFUL DAUGHTER.
My Mother was sorely afflicted with Sicrofula for three years and a half;
during that time the glands on her n< ek burrt open in five places. Thiee of the
openings were small and healed right up, but the other two would fill up and
break open anew, about evv,ry[tw ) weeks always causing severe pain and often
prostration. She-was so reduced .'i r n tli, that tonics and coca wines hadto
be generously used to keep hri ;i0 o S'e co un:e:;ced taking S. S. S., and
improved from the start, the fir-I b.iilae gar;,e her an appetite and by the time
she finished the fourth bottle I e ne k h'aled up, she is now entirely well.

Deafnes Can't be Cured
By local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by constitu-
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an in-
flamed condition of the mucous lining of. the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets in-
flamed you have a rumbling-sound or imper-
fect hearing, and when it is entirely closed,
deafness is the result, and unless the inflam-
mation can b3 taken out and this tube re-
stored to its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in-
flamed condition of thie mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that we
cannot cure by taking Hall's Catarrh Cure.

"There's something behind it"
That's what you think, perhaps,
when you read that the proprietors
of Dr. Sage's Catarrh.Remedy offer
$500 roewrd for an incurable case
of Catarrh. Rather unusual,' you
think, to find the makers of a medi-
cine trying to prove that they be-'
lieve in it. "There must be some-
thing back of it!"
But it's a plain, square offer, made
in good faith. The only thing that's
back of it is the Remedy. It cures
Catarrh in the Head. To its mild,
soothing, cleansing and healing
properties, the worst, cases yield,
no matter how bad or of how long
standing. It has a record that
goes back for 25 years, It doesn't
simply relieve it perfectly and
permanently cures. With a Rem-
edy like this, the proprietors can
make such an offer and mean it.
1 To be sure there's risk in it, but
it's so very small that they are
willing to take it.
You've "never heard of anything
like this offer ?" True enough.
But then you've never heard of
anything like Dr. Sage's Remedy.
