Senator Tillman is so thor
orough a democrat that he is go

for the enlightenment of the peo
ple on public questions by ar
ranging special campaign meet
ings for the glorification of him
self and the defense of his child.
Broad platform this.
If the town council is going to
license the pool room, there
should at least be an age limit.
This thing of allowing boys of
10 to 15 years of age to visit this
place should be stopped by the
authoaities at once. Justice to
the boys demands that this be
This is the time for getting
busy with cleaning up back yards,
lots and premises, so as to
prevent being eaten up by the
mosquitoes later in the summer.
Drain off all pools of water, and
remove all old tin cans and other
rubbish, anything and everything
that will tend to develop mos
quitoes or disease germs. The
board of health can get in some
good work for the town now by
seeing that these necessary sani
tary provisions are put into effect.
The Lancaster Cotton Associa
tion is- without a presid ent or
secretary, these officers having
resigned to enter politics, Presi
dent Strait for Congress and
Secretary Jones, for the legisla
ture. Fairfields association is
not likely to suffer the loss of its
officers in this way, as there is
very little probability of Presi
dent Cathcart's going into politics
and as for the secretary we feel
fully warranted in saying that, if
he does ever enter the political
field at any time, it will certainly
not be this summer.
George McDuffie Estes.
The subject of this notice, Geo.
McD. Estes, was born near Cross
Keys, in Union county, about
sikty-two years ago, and passed
quietly away on the 18th of June,
1906, at the home of his sister,
Mrs. W. J. Keller, being at that
time her only surviving brother,
and also the third brother she
has lost within the year; R.
Thomas Estes, who was a gallant
soldier in the late Capt. James P.
Macfle's company of cavalry, and
well known to many of Fairfield's
S old veterans, was the first to go,
then Andrew Estes followed soon
McD. Estes was a Confederate
vesteran, a brave, quiet man, was
a member of the 18th South Car
olina regiment. He was in ranks
with his company at the explo
sion of Grant's mine at Peters
burg, Va., and was covered up
with the immense volume of earth
thrown out. but was rescued with
out having sustained any very
serious injury. After the war he
retired to the quiet walks of life
as a farmer. About four years
ago he had a severe stroke of
paralysis from which he never
recovered and which 'was the im
mediate cause oi his death.
He was ever true to his State
and her calls to duty, never flinch
ing from nor failing to perform
his full part whenever called upon.
He was a member of Padgett's
Creek Baptist church, near Cross
Keys, and a consistent Christian.
He spent most of his time during
the past year with his only sister,
Mrs. W. J. Keller, his wife having
died about eight years ago, leav
* ing him with five daughters and
two sons to care for.
~"'- His remains were carried to
Padgett's Creek church cemetery
and laid away to rest till the final
resurrection, many of his rela
tives and friends being present to
attest their esteem and sorrow for
the death of the gallant soldier,
the upright citizen, the true
friend, the loving father and
brother, and the patient Chris
tian, who suffered so long and
never murmured agains~t Him un
der whose rod he suffered.'

community is extended to Mrs.
Keller in; her triple bereavement
in so short a time, and to the
children of the deceased. K.

It Is Dangerous to Neglect a Cold,
How otten do we hear it remarked:

wer slight, should not be disregarded.

Permanent vs. Prominent.
Mr. T. C. Leitner has called
>ur attention to the fact that in
:he publication of his card last
week, that there was a serious
error in putting it prominent im
provements, when the word that
lie phoned in was permanent.
His platform is not so much the.
andertaking of great or prominent
improvements, but that of maki ng
all work of a permanent nature.
The correction is duly made.

ONE OF NATURE'S TOOLS.
How Teasels Are Used In Finishing
Growing by t4e wayside you will of
ten see that stately, spiny looking
plant, the teazel, but I wonder low
many know that It has helped to fir:ish
many a piece of cloth they wear.
We are apt to think of a tool as
something of man's make, yet hero is
one of nature's own, and nothing 3as
ever been manufactured to successful
ly take its place. For ages the te.-zel
has been used for fulling cloth-thaat
Is, raising the "nap"-and the 'maau
facturers refer to "nap goods" thus
treated as "gigged."
When ripe, the dried spike heads are
gathered, packed carefully in bundles
and shipped in all directions to facto
ries. The variety mostly used ha -ve
the extreme end of the spikes hooked
or curved backward. This is called
"fullers' teazel." These heads form a
sort of brush and are attached to a
wheel or cylinder which revolves
against the surface of the clpth, rnd
these curved spikes catch paTt of the
threads and pull them up, making a
fuzzy nap. This is trimmed down und
leaves that soft, velvety finish to the
cloth. The spikes have strength enough
and elasticity, but when they come in
contact with a rough place In the cloth
they break and so avoid tearing the
mnaterial. Try as they may, no one aas
ever been able to invent a tool possess
ing all of these qualities, so the ter.zel
stands unrivaled for that use. T.he
plant as we see it growing wild lo-ks
perhaps at first glance somewhat like
a thistle, but it really has a digtity
and character all its own. The heads
In flower are covered with a fluffy
down, lavender or white, and as the
blossoms drop spikes appear u 'l lat
er it fairly bristles. The leaves, point
ed and spiked, shooting out. each side
of the stem, meet at the base and form
a little basin In which is usually wva
ter. So we have the name of the plant
from the Greek "dipsacus," meaning
thirsty, and many other fanciful oi-es,
such as Venus' cup, Venus' bath, wood
or church brooms, gypsy combs, cloth
ter's brush, etc.-St. Nicholas.
