GOOD-BYE. We say It for an hour or for years; We say it smiling, say it choked with tears; We say It coldly, say it with a kiss; And yet we have no other word than this Good-bye. Ve have no dearer word for our heart's friend. For him who jouirineys to t he world's far ci, And scars our soul with gokig; thus we say, As unto him who steps )1t o'er the way: Good-bye.

Wedding Days. There are favored days in the week for marriages, as well as fa vored months in the year. Satur day, Sunday and Monday are the most in esteem-Sunday in the ru ral districts and Saturday in the towns. 'It appears, however, that Sunday weddings are generally less numerous than they were, while Saturday weddings are on the increase. Friday is deemed an unlucky day for marriage, as for most other undertakings. In the county of Gloucester there were but 20 Friday marriages in 1881, to 213 on Saturday, 211 on Men (lay and 203 on Sunday. In the city of Manchester much the same proportion holds out. The Friday wNeddings were but 24 to 287 on Saturday, 221 on Sunday, and 1781 on Monday. In Scotland, on the other hand, Friday is the great (lay for marrying ; nearly half the weddings for a given year are cel ebrated on thaL day. Sunday in Scotland is practically a dies non' for matrimanial purposes ; and the Saturday weddings are exceeding ly few. The English prejudice a gainst F...

Let that pass, For I've drunk ny last glass, boys, I have drunk my lsst glass. Just look at me now, boys, in rags and disgrace,. With my bleared, haggard eyes, and . my red, bloated face! My faltering step, and my weak pal sied hand, And the mark on my brow that is worse than Cain's braad, My crownless old hat, and my elbows and knees Alike warmed by the sunshine or chill ed by the breeze. Why, even the children hoot as I pass; But I've drunk ny last glass, boys, I have drunk my last glass. You would hardly believe, boys, to look at me now, That a mother's soft hand once was pressed on my brow When she kissed me, and blessed me, her darling,...

ghie gae eenger. J. R. HAGOOD, Editor. THE REPUBLICANS IN COUNCIL. The Republicans of the Pickens and Easley townships held their respective club meetings last week, 0 at which time they elected dele gates to the County Convention which meets here on Saturday next. From what we have heard each of these townships were re presented by their best men, though "they are few and far be tween.'' The scarcity of these men in our midst insures for some of theni the continued favor of "'Uncle Sam.'' But with themseves, all is not "quiet along the Poto mae.'' Dissension has found its existence, and their small ranks are broken into sections of oppos ing parties. They are not pulling together. Mr. II. B. Hendricks has launched out with his crew upon the raging seas, to be attack ed by other representives of the party. M'essrs. Folger, Barton, Gary and others, with the per suasion of their respective tongues w ill, and are working against Mr. Hendricks. A desperate fight will be made next Saturd...
