PUBLISHED WEEKLY. WIN NSBORO, S. C., WEDMESDAY, FEBRUARY 4f 1902.ESALHD
Last Friday the senate and
house met in joint sesion to
bold Memoial Exercises of .he
dkceased membcis of the house
Hon. E. B. Ragshale of Fairfield,
Hon J. G. Redfearu of Chester
field, and Dr. J. G. Ri'-hords of
Kershaw: The forma' resolutionis
were intioduced by Hon. W. J.
Johnson, Mr. Ragsde's succe~ss or.
The following clippings from the
Strfte will be read with interest
in this county which Mr. Ragdale
so well represented and in which
he was so much beloved.
Mr Johuson was a colle2gue of
Mr. Rgsdale for tvo years, and
as a colleague he spoke of his
deceased friend. He deoscribed
the manly virtues of Mr, ltagsdale
who was a positive character, a
lawyer of scholarly attainments
who had achieved much success,
a man of great courage. Mr.
Ragsdale had by an almost unan
inous vote of his people been
sent -to. the general assembly.
Even with the fatal diseaze caus
ing him suffering he labored dili
gently, earnebtly and ably.
Mr. Prince of Anderson paid a
gloDug tribute to Mr. Ragsdale's
tbility as a lawyer. le then
spoke of him as a courageous,
manly man, a fair fighter in de
bate and a scrupulously houest
and exceedingly valuable legis
Speaker Stevenson took oc
casion to pay a tribute to the
memory of each of his departed
friends. He spoke 'with much
feeling of the manliness and
characteristic tone of Mr.
SRagsdale's lette of reCi
th'the 'ps of their
fingers. Th-y lo not like to get
their shoulders nder the wheel,
and they prefer to give orders to
others or fi.;urai as masters and
Jet sone one els3 to do the drudg
eary. There is no doubt that
ndoleuce and lazinaiss are the
chief-obstales to success.
When we se a boy who has
just secured a position take hold
of everything with both hands
and "jump right into his work,"
as if he meant to succee1, we have
confidence that he will prosp.
'But if h. stands around and asks
questions when told to do any
Stinf r if h 'ils You that this or
that belongs to. some oter boy
to do, for it i-s not his work; if ho
does not try to carry out~ his
orders in the'carrect way; if he~
wants a thiousand exp)1uv'tionS
when asked to runi au mrand and
makes his employer think that he
could have done~ the whole thing
himself, one feelis like discharging
such a bov ou the spot, for he is1
conviced& that he was =t cut
out for success. That boy wil
be cursed with'mdoci.y or willI
be a failure. Tlhere iS n10 1)lace
in this ceutary for the lazy man.
He~ will be pushed~ to thie wall.
Danger of Commercialsmh.
One of the greatest dangers
that threaten Amecriani institultionl
todayr, is comrjercialismf. Our
strenuous5 life, withi itSln-m
and driving to get rich, t& u !s t o
foster theC sl:et of guee and
trgt hunger; and this spiot, in
tu~rn)..tends to develo1 our ma
teii and coarser faculties.
NIaterialismO is written all over
Aimerican life to~day. In the ans
ious pursuit of dollas, mainy feel
that they ca:nt ..ffota time to
develop their social side. A
