The President and Civil Service.
Of all the subjects touched on by
President Cleveland in his message,
there was none, perhaps, in which the
South was more directly interested than
in nio views rHfHTUJJUg
form. He, of course, expressed him
self strongly in favor of doing away
with the spoils system, as he has given
every indication mat ne luienus w
make retorm of tne civil service me
cornerstone of his id ministration. It
was not surprising, therefore, that he
should have declared unreservedly in
favor of making fitness the first requi
site for governmental position, and
that he should have indulged the hope
that "we shall never again be remmit
ted to a system which distributes pub
lic positions purely as a reward for par
tisan services." Here we have
all over our immediate section, a num
ber of officials whose records as off en
siye partisans are conspicuous, and who
were placed in office by the preceding
Radical Administration more as a re
ward for partisan services than any
thing else. Their fitness was never
inquired into, and they were only giv
en place and position because they had
made themselves especially obnoxious
to our people. One great objection that
the South nad for persistently and ob
stinately remaining solid for tne Demo
cratic nartv. was because she believed
that when that party came into power
these chronic Radical omce seekers and
office holders would be removed, and
their places filled by men in sympathy
with our people. Yet a Democratic
administration has been in power for
nine months, and they are still with us
just as if a Radical President were yet
in the White House in Washington.
The South is getting impatient over
this condition of affairs, she would like
to see Mr. Cleveland speedily apply
practically the principles of civil ser
vice reform that he so emphatically
enunciates, by removing from omce
those relics of Radicalism amongst us,
who hold their places only as a reward
for zealous partizan work performed
against the Democratic party. Will he
not accede to her just demands?
Savannah Times, Dem.
Some years ago a party of English
naturalists, with several native attend
ants, penetrated a previously unexplor
ed portion of India, for the purpose of
establishing stations, and eventually
open up a country very rich in natural
advantages. Upon reaching a suitable
spot, the workmen commenced their
task of erecting a suitable building. It
was necessary to have a large cellar,
and a deep excavation was made.
The earth was dry and sandy, and
was worked with ease. The absence of
large stones was noticed ; indeed there
was found no hard substance that
would have interested a geologist. But
late in the afternoon of the first day's
work, one of the natives struck his
pick against a resisting substance. An
other blow, and the implement broke
through into a hollow space. The
earth being scraped away, a large
smooth object was exposed, of so strange
an appearance that the attention of
the commanding officer was called to
it. He at once pronounced it a bene.
The fact that they had come upon
(rrnvp nf a frnnw animal nrminA
great excitement, and all hands went
to work clearing away the sand. As
they progressed, their wonder mid ex
citement increased also ; their discov
ery began to assume the shape of a
dome, and appeared to be rounded off.
Finally, when four feet or more of sand
had been cleared away, thev saw a hut-
shaped object, that seemed, through the
note made by the pick, to be partly
hollow. The natives one and all there
upon declared it a hut, or house, built
by some of aheir ancestors, that had in
course of time been covered by the
earth. Others thought it one of the
dwelling places of a strange people who
lived under the earth: but to the Eng
lish naturalists there was a more sim
ple explanation, for the curious house
was the shell of a gigantic turtle be
longing to an age long passed. The
work progressed rapidly; and though
when exposed to the sun some parts
broke in pieces, the entire shell was
successfully uncovered and a complete
restoration or it was made.
The shell was that of a land tortoise.
Hundreds of thousands of vears aero it
had lived and died and the dust, sand
and vegetation had gradually covered
it up and preserved it as a monument
of the animal wonders of that ancient
time. So enormous was the shell that
when the sand and dirt were removed,
several of the men crawled into it; in
fact, it might have been used as a
house, and on a subsequent occasion
was so used bv a nartv which took
refuge in it during a sudden shower.

A British Importation,
What is this much talked of Civil
Service? Whence came it? Is it de
sirable? Do the Southern Democrats
favor it? These are questions of some
"pith and moment."
As to the first question uWhat is it
and whence came it," we have this to
say. It is an importation an exotic.
It is not indigenous to the American
soil. It is of British origin. The seeds
of this Upas were brought from ho-
yond the seas. It is well enough adap-
tea w a country 01 ancient aristocracy
and immemorial privileges. It suits a
Monarchy in which men are trained
lor a given place and are kept in for
life. It is the verv system for th
younger scions of nobility and an edu-
catea gentry to mid homes for if
with a good fat salary attached. It
works well as a part of the British
system, for it gives men a life tenure
under such fluctuations and mutations
of parties as would otherwise endanger
Government and stop the wheels of
enterprise. Why this? Attend.
In England t He Mini -try are in fact
the Government, just as in this coun
try the Congress governs. The Queen
is a sort or. ornamental ngure nead
because personal government was bu
ried with the Georges forever. But how
are the Ministry chosen? The Queen
sends for some prominent member of
Parliament and asks him to form a
Government. He selects his own Min
istry or Cabinet, which numbers twelye
or fourteen members. They soon pro
pose certain measures and unless they
are approved by a majority vote of the
Parliament they go out of office. That
is to say, the life of a Ministry depends
upon its ability to control a majority
of the House of Commons. Ministries
are often short lived. Some have been
of afew days or a few weeks. Others
have lasted only for a few months. If
the tens of thousands of officials were
to be changed with every Ministry or
Government there would be chaos. It
It would be impossible to run the Gov
ernment because men would be incom
petent, as they could not get fairly
seated before they would be unhorsed.
So it is absolutely necessary and inevi
table that the tenure of the underlings
should be permanent or nearly so.
But this is not the case in the Uni
ted States. Here a President is elected
for a specified term, with a chance of
re-election, and he has ample opportu
nity of selecting his own party suppor
ters to co-operate with him in carrying
on tne Government.
But aside from this, the very genius
of our institutions is unfriendly to
office-holding in perpetuity. The fath
ers the men of wisdom who set up
this great Republic and formed our
complex, admirable and unique system
of- Government, believed in frequent
elections that is to say in frequent
appeals to the people to know their will,
and to ascertain if a change of officials
was desirable. The British, and, there
fore, un-American, un-republican, un
democratic system of life tenure destroys
this principle of appeal and of change.
The attempt to fasten such a system
upon the people of the United States
is only another evidence of the tenden
cy of the age to a strong Government
to a return to the cast-off privileges
and policy of a Monarchy. Mr. Curtis,
a Republican editor, is the father of
this system in this country. He is a
gifted, scholarly, able New Englander,
with a strong British leaning, and,
like so many of the Boston people, is
very English at heart. This is the
British system of life tenure in office
that he would import and engraft upon
the American system. It lias been
partially successful. The rules of the
system now apply to some 15,000 office
holders out ot some 111,000. As long
as the rules exist as long as the law
prevails, it is the duty of the President
to enforce it fairly and thoroughly.
This he is doing. But the question is,
can such a monarchical system be well
adapted to the American people? The
above answers the question, we think.
It is not desirable as we look at it. Do
the Southern Democrats favor it? Are
they in favor of "turning the rascals
out," or of retaining the army of Re
publican officials? We will consider
this hereafter. Wil. Star.

Webster held his fine silk hat in his

Burned to Death.
Washington Gazette : We are in
formed of a very sad death which re
sulted from burning on last Friday. It
appears that the daughter of Mr. S. B.
Sawyer, aged 14 years, was in the
dining room preparing dinner for her
father, whom she was expecting home
at the usual time. Before she was
aware of danger her clothing took fire
and in a moment she was enveloped in
flames. Her little brother ran to a
neighbor's house for assistance, and the
burning daughter ran to meet her
father, who was a quarter of a mie
from home. When the screaming
child reached her father all of her
clothes were burned off and her flesh
was burned in a most horrid manner.
She was taken home, and after suffer
ing the most excruciating pain, died on
Sunday morning last.
Every now and then accidents of this
sort happen. Of course running is the
worst thing one can do ; it is almost
invariably fatal. Don't run. Get on
the bed and roll up in the cover. At
all events, lie down somewhere. In
this position you are not so apt to suf
focate and the clothing cannot burn so
Lemons in Medicine and Cookery.
We know of a physician who used
lemon juice in a case of small-pox, the
only liquid given, and no other reme
dies. In thirty-six hours the dk ease
was under complete control, and in one
week was entirely cured.
Hot lemonade, with flaxseed sim
mered in it for half an hour, then
strained and sweetened, is excellent for
a cold, but, as it produces perspiration,
it should be taken only upon retiring.
The white of an egg beaten to a stilt
froth and whipped up with the juice of
a lemon, relieves hoarseness and sore
ness of the chest at once, taken by the
teaspoonf ul half hourly.
The juice of two lemons taken in
half a glass of water before each meal
is a powerful remedy for rheumatism,
and it is also considered almost a spe
cific for intermittent fever. The juice
of one lemon taken three times a dav
in a cup of clear, strong coffee, will)
often cure chills and fever, when the
disease is stubborn and unyielding to all
The pulp of a lemon bound on for
three successive nights, is said to cure
corns, and a few pearl shirt buttons
dissolved in the luice of one lemon
forms a thick, creamy ointment that
will almost surely cure them. So we
find the medicinal properties of the
lemon are many and varied; their
value in culinary art is also great. The
rind, thinly pared off, is an agreeable
flavoring for custards, creams and
blanc mange. It should be cooked in
the milk and removed before the other
ingredients are added. The yellow
rind only is fit for use the white part
is always bitter.
Webster and Jenny Lind.
"Webster was a very convivial man,
fond of pleasure and social amenities.
On one occason he was at a supper, at
Brown's hotel, and, the wine being
food, he imbibed a great deal of it.
enny Lind was singing at the Canter
bur theatre, and at a late hour Web
ster and his party of friends adjourned
from the hotel to the theatre. When
they arrived the curtain had just gone
up for the last act, and the cantatrice
appeared on the stage to -sing 'Hail
Columbia.1 Wedster joined in with his
magnificent bass and accompanied her
through the song. The audience yell
ed, stamped and shouted. They again,
and again sang it through with the
same enthusiasm pervading tne au
dience. The procedure was repeated a
third, a fourth, a hfth and a sixth
time, before they were permitted to re
tire. At the close Webster made a
magnificent bow to the diva, such as
would have made him a prince had he
made it at a drawing room of Louis le
Grand; the singer returned it, and
Webster repeated it, and these cour
tesies continued until both had bo ei
in the most elaborate manner seei
It is related that when St. Patrick
landed in Ireland in the fifth century
having overcome the hostility of the
savage islanders, he proceeded to in
struct them in the doctrines of Chris
tianity. But in vain did he endeavor
to explain to them the doctrine of the
trinity in unity. His untutored hear
ers failed to comprehend his reasoning
till, plucking a trefoil to serve as an il
lustration, be inquired of them, "Is it
not as possible for the Father, Son and
Holy bhost as tor these three leaves to
grow upon a single stalk? I his argu

dedicated to the saint and became the
national cognizance. It is somewhat
unfortunate that this pretty story is
not to be found in any of the lives of the
great saints of Ireland, but it is still
more unfortunate that it is again im
possible to determine which is the true
shamrock. According to the best au
thorities, however, the honor is due to
the Black Nonsuch or Medicago, or to
the Dutch clover. Roth these plants are
worn on St. Patrick's day, and are held
to be the shamrock. Chamber's Jour
In a letter written by Bishop Hugh
Miller Thompson, of Mississippi, speak
ing of the Agricultural College at
Starkville, he tells us what he saw some
of the students doing at that institu
tion: "I have just seen what I consider the
most hopeful sight so far visible to
my eyes in Mississippi fifty or sixty
young men white men, mind you
with hands and hoes down in the soil
digging potatoes and planting straw
berries at eight cents an hour. They
were not tramps, nor boors, but schol
ars and gentlemen sons of our best
people and were learning many things
of vast promise to themselves and Mis
sissippi, in this close and practical ac
quaintance with its soil !
"lhe institution is tilled this year to
its utmost capacity. There are, I be
lieve, 375 students. I was struck with
the admirable discipline, the indepen
dent and self-respecting bearing of the
youug men, the military alertness, the
C9Urtesy of manner to the professors
id to each other.
"I saw the young men upon parade,
n their kMess half at the substantial

anti-luxurious quarters, and at their
work, as I have described, m the held

axes on their shoulders, returning from

The Waste From The House.
In order to utilize in the garden the
waste from the house at the least ex
pense, first purchase a barrel of un
slacked lime, then take an empty barrel
and begin by putting in it a layer of
soil or ashes, and then the waste from
the house, everything that dog or cat
will not eat. Keen this decaying veg
etable matter covered with an inch of
soil or ashes, using coal or wood ashes.
Once a week in winter, and oftener m
summer, cover with lime, say half an
inch. The lime will be slacking, of
course, and should be kept dry, but as
lime retains its virtue a long time, the
one barrel will last a year or more, ac
cording to the waste kept.
If starting this experiment in the
autumn, early in the spring empty the
contents of the barrel into the garden
beds, cover with coal ashes, if the soil
is not already deep enough, and spade
it in. Should the soil be deep and
good, the compost can be used without
the ashes; then when the weather is
right, put it on the plants.
' Sneezing Bullets.
An Elkyille correspondent sends an
account of the rather remarkable case
nf aneezincr which haooehed on the 2d
day of November to A. If. Proffit, Esq.,
of Reedy Branch, Wlkes county.
Esquire Proffit served as a member of
Company D., 18th regiment, during
the war, having been conscripted in
1862. On the morning of the second
day's fight at the Wilderness be receiv
ed a severe wound, a minnie ball
striking near the temple and ranging
around over his eyes and passing out
as he thought. On the second of No
vember he was oppressed with a very
painful headache and in the evening.
after sneezing once or twice, a half
of a minnie ball dropped out of his
nose. Lenoir lopic.
Are the offspring of short parents
short, and do the children of tall per
sons grow to be unusually tall? Such
a question a Scotch scientist recently
asked himself, and he set to work to
gather some statistics of stature. His
data consisted of the heights of 930
adults and of their respective parents,
205 of each sex in number, or alto
gether of 1,449 observations. It was
shown that the difference between the
heights of the two parents might be
disregarded, having on the whole an
inconsiderable effect on the height of
the offspring. It was also shown that
marriage selection takes little or no ac
count of shortness ortallness. The gen-
1 11 111 1 --
erai result was that where the mean
height of the two parents was greater
than mediocrity, their children tend to
be shorter than they.

An exchange says; "f irst boil, say
htty gallons of cider, dowp to twenty
gallons, skimming constantly while
boiling. Strain through Cloths into a
kettle from mill. When done boiling,
strain same into a clean keg or barrel,
while warm. Hung it up for four
weeks. Then draw off the cider care
fully and don't disturb the? settlihgsjn
the bottom of the barrel. I hen wash
the barrel clean, and strain and put
thestrained cider into it again. Now,
to every torty gallons, or in that pro
portion, add one teacupf ull of unground
mustard seed; bung-up tight. It will
keep for years and never squr, and will
become as clear as wine and of the
same Color. Bottle it up if you wish.
I have some now ten vears old. Have
had it longer. You can't tell it from
the best of wine. Follow the directions
closely. The lony-er it is kept the
letter it is."

Physicians throughout the country
are beginning to make war on skating
rinks, advising young ladies against the
violent and dangerous exercise. The
strain on the legs and bodies of girls
cannot be otherwise than injurious, and
the day will come when feeble and
crippled mothers will regret their vio
lent exercise in skating nnks.
The difficulty of judging a horse by
