President Roosevelt sends a
special message to congress,
recommending an appropriation
of $500,000 for rescuing the citi
zens of Martinique.
The rapid rate at which our
State pension list is growing in
dicates that the increase in the
pension appropriation means but
a small increase of pay to the
most needy individual pensioners.
Messrs. F. W. Wagener & Co.
of Charleston have our thanks
for a copy of "Charleston and the
Exposition Illustrated," which
beautifully illustrates the great
achievement of the "City by the
Sea," in the accomplishment of
which more credit is due to the
head of the above firm than to
There now remain but two
weeks more of the Charleston ex
position, the praises of which
have been sung by everyone who
has visited it. Such an oppor
tunity is not likely to be yours
again soon; so if you can possibly
arrange your business so as to
attend, you should by all means
do it. A treat is in store for
The best memorial South Carolina
could dedicate to her greatest, grand
est son would be the plain, unvar
uished vet full blooded history of the
campaign of 1876, unmatched in all the
ages, in which Wade Ham pton proved
the savior of his people. It would be
whiter than marble, more enduring
than brass, and all the futrure. would
be the better for the influence it would
have upon the generations to follow
the fast talling veterans of the older
days. And there is one, only one,
man in the State conpetent to such a
splendid work-Carlyle McKinley of
Charleston. The General Assembly at
its next session should lay such coi
mand of the State upon hii, and make
an appropriation sufficient to keep this
prince of Carolina writers on Easy
street the remainder of his years in

service.-Barn well People.

The above paragraph from our

and appropriate with the excep

the number of iseed to be put in

that peas do best when planted
several in a hill, and instead of
3 to 5 for each bill 8 to 12 are
better, for from this number of
seed 4 to 6 good strong plants

CANNOT HAVE JENNINGS.
The Methodist's Won't Give Him Up
to the Baptists.
To the Editor of The State:
In Rev. L. J. Bristow's inter
esting letter concerning the
Southern Baptist convention he
names a number of prominent
South Carolinians who are mem
bers of the Baptist church. In
this list State Treasurer R. H.
Jennings is included. Brother
Bristow will have to excuse us
we cannot let him have Brother
Jennings. We might be induced
to part with some of our ".promi
nents," but not with R. H. Jen
nings. Methodist he is and
Methodist he must remain.
Brother Bristow can console
himself with the reflection that
Jennings wouldn't make a good
Baptist any way. When a minis
ter of the Methodist or some
other church gave the invitation
to all church members irrespec
tive of denomination to come
forward and commune with them,
Jennings' big fraternal heart
would grow responsive and he
would find himself at the com
munion table partaking with his
brethren. Or when a church
meeting was called to considex
the matter of receiving into mem
bership some one who had al
ready been baptized Jennings
would be on his feet making a
motion like this: Inasmuch as
the brother has already received
the ordinance of baptism I move
that he be received into fellow
ship with us without. being re
These departures "from the
faith" and others that he might
make would bring trouble. No
R. H. Jennings wouldn't make a
good Baptist. He does make a
splendid Methodist; has renderec
il,valuable service to that church,
in it he must stay.

the greatest exposition tjie South
has ever known, and considered
from the standpoint of moneyin
vested and results accomplished,
the greatest the world has ever
seen. The proof is easy.
In a few days this great ex

pass into history, the exhibits
will be scattered to* the. four
quarters of the earth, and the
beautiful buildings removed.
Those who have not seen it
should not miss the opportunity
of their lives, those who have,
should see it again. It cannot
be seen too often.
The remaining weeks are full
of special "days," conspicuous
among them Odd Fellows Day,
May 13; West Indian Day, May
16, and last but not least "Wage
ner Day," May 22, designated in
honor of the president of the
company, who by his unfaulter
ing zeal and liberality has given
fruition to the plans of his com
pany. Every South Carolinian,
every man who loves a good
patriotic citizen should be on the
exposition grounds on "Wagener
Day," and show at least some
faint recognition of the work one
man has done.
The railroads have made the
lowest rates for "Wagener Day's

Military Schools and Discipline.
It was remarked a few days
ago by a citizen that it is some
what remarkable that the serious
troubles that have occured in
colleges in this State have been
in military colleges; which are
popularly supposed to represent
the highest type of discipline.
His explanation was that the rule
in military colleges is not disci
pline at all in its true sense as
applied to students in- educa
tional institutions, but compul
There is something in this
worth thinking about, for it does
seem that students behave much
better in colleges where they are
put largely on their honor.
The readers will recall the
very serious troubles at West
Point in hazing and other forms
of insubordiration; the trouble
in the Citadel academy a few
years ago, when the senior class
left in a body under circumstan
ces somewhat similar to those
recently occurring it Clemson,
and the previous trouble at Clem
son, when a large portion of the
student\body openly demauded
the removal of ono of tfi
fessors from the faculty.
Students are not different from
other people; if they are put on/
their honor and trusted they will
prove themselves worthy of trust.
If they are controlled by power
Iand by the surveillance of their
teachers they will seek oecesions
to break the rules.
'Ihis does not necessaiily mean.
that the military features sof
Clemson or the Citade1 is wrong
in itself, but it will 'not do to de
pend on that for securing disci

There is a little article that
everybody uses, and yet I never
see advertised. I look over the
.laily and weekly press in vain to
find where it can be purchased.
On this they are as sile.nt as the
omh. In vain I look at the signs
on the street, or in the shop win
,iow for it. It is sold in every
village and hamlet in the land,
and yet no drummer ever carries
samples of it and never takes an
order for it. Its price never
rises, and yet it payst handsomely
all who deal in it. And strange
to say there is usually but one
place in a town that keeps it.
There is always a supply of it
never too much nor too little. It -'
is never taxed, no matter how
many thiousanid dol:ars' worth.are
in stoek. There has never been
any corner or speculation in it,
and its price at whoh-saile or re
tail is always just the same, It
has never made a millionaire or a
puper. That httle thing is a
p< stage stamp, and if all articles
wae produced and handled in
he same way there would be
neither p)overty, crime or insanity
