is also claimed that this is the
best list which South Carolina

Alexander White's history of
South Carolina for the elementary
grades and Col. J. J. Dargan's for

"Graded Literature -Series," 1, 21
and 3, were adopted. B. F. John

fifth readers. Silver, Burdett &
Co. were awarded second place,

the gun would accomplih. The result
tof the trial was therefore a great sur

A Title of Particular Distinction in
Titles have become so common
that they mean nothing. Men
are especially fond of military
titles and those that indicate
learning. The average colonel of
these days knows no more about
military drill and army organiza
tion thav a blind hog knows of
astronomy. Many of the D. D.'s
are ignorant of the history of the
religions of the world and even
of that of their own churches.
They are not an authority on any
thing. The professor may take
out corns, or dig after Greek
roots. These titles are so com
mon and bestowed without any
regard to merit that they carry
no honor with them. It is a dis
tinction these days to be plain
"Mister." That is a good word
and of worthy parentage, if you
will look into its derivation.
Then many of our people run the
term "Reverend," as applied to
preachers, in the ground. It does
not fit many of them. In writing
"Rev. John Thomas Jones" it
sounds very well, but it is abomi
nable when it becomes Rev. Jones.
The term "brother" is also much
abused. 1 any merchants and
clerks, with more calico on hand
than brains are in the habit of
addressing strange customers as
"brother." From such turn away
and deal not with them. They
either have little sense and man
ners, or they expect to cheat you.
Even in churches the word "broth
er" is greatly.abused. When re
ligious bodies meet for worship
r business, it may be proper to
use that term, but it should be
done very sparingly. Nine cases
out of ten "Mister" is more re
spectful. There is no can't about
that. Titles should always con
vey a meaning. If not, the wearer
of them masquerades before tie
public as a sort of frau4. Let
us get back to plain Mister that
is always well pleasing to sensi
ble men.-Carolina Spartan.
Twenty Year Battle.
"I was a loser in a twenty year
battle with chronijL piles and
alignant sores, until I tried
Bucklen's Arnica Salve; which
turned the tide, by curing both,
till not a trace remains," writes

Cotton Seed Qil.
Why don't the Southern people
iave sense enough to recogmze
:otton seed oil as the prinoipal
asis of practically all the sot
alled lard they are now using
mnd go in directly for cotton seed
il rather than lard? We confess
>ar inability to give a. satisfac
ory answer to this question.
[he chemiist tells us that there is
o harm in cottaa seed oil and
ractical experien~e got only
ells us that it measures up te
very requirement of lard; but
hat it is just as wholesome and
ver so much cleaner. But still
re have a prejudice against the
il and won't use jb until the
~iorthern packer has mitad it
with more or less questionable
iog fat, labeled it under a different1
ame and sold it back to us at a
igher price. By the way is it
ot possible that our objection to
otton seed oil in food is really a
natter of Yankee suggestion? If
here was any way to trace the
natter to the bottom this is about
vhat we won.Ld find. ALnd yet, it
s as plain as the~ ge on one's
ace that if the southern people
ould assume a frank, open at
tude toward the subject, deter
nine on the use of cotton seed
ii theraselves, brag on it and do
dll in their power to remove the
rej adiees of others, the result
.ould be a still more wholesomc
roduct than we are now getting
t much less cost. We are allow
ng ourselves to be duped in this
natteor, and we are paying tribute
n a comnmocdity that is absolutely1

A Tragic Finish.
A watchman's neglect permitted
a leak in the great North Sea
clyke, which a uhild's linger could
have stopped, to baeopge a ruin

province of Holland. In like
manner Kenneth Mclver, of
Vanceboro, Me., permitted a little
old to go unnoticed until a tragic
finish was only averted by Dr.

A Pertinent Comparison. C
A statesman springs up every
day or two and shouts: "When
you find a county treasurer steal- s
ing, what do you do, abolish his I
office?" And then in stentorian n
voice answers himself: "No! r
They put the treasurer in jail and
clean up his office. Then why T
abolish the dispensary because C
of stealing there? Put the thief A
in the penitentiary and run the 1
dispensary right." And the boys 2
whoop. The logic hits 'em just r
right. There are differences t(
however. The treasurer's office n
is part of the government ma- ti
chinery; its conduct is in no V
manner corrupting. When there c
is stealing a bookkeeper can 2
expose it and the official can be
punished. The treasurer's office S
is successfully conducted i n 1
thonsands of counties in dozens ih
of States. The State dispensary J
is successfully conducted nowhere. A
If a man established a pole-cat f<
farm near his home and finds
that the profits derived do not T
compensate him for the tainted L
breezes that invade his house, F
what would he do, get rid of the T
polecats or sprinkle rosewater to
about the premises. The Ravsor- A
Manning bill will be about as 21
effective in making the dispensary
sweet and clean as would a E
rosewater sprinkler on a polecat G

Bucket Shop System Most Pernicious
Form of Gambling.
Without in anywise minimizing
the evil infnuences3 of other forms
of gambling, we wish to emphasize
the statement, that dealing in
cotton futures as it is now carried
on by the average operator is tho
most prenicious evil in the south
to-day. This is . particularly
true of the so-called "Bucket
Shops," where the man of small
means can risk his stakes and
take his chances on each turn of
the big wheel manipulated at
headquarters in New York, New
Orleans and Liverpool. The
bucket shop is a serious menace
to the future welfare of the coun
try. All forms of gambling are
hazardous and detrimental to the
morals of the community and the
future of the nation. The south
has lost millions of hard earned
dollars this winter through the
medium of bucket shops, private
wire houses and the big .cotton
exchanges. It is better'to have
a roulette wheel on every street
corner w*here the man of gambling
proclivities can risk his dollar in
the open than to permit the
existence of a single bucket shop,
where behind closed doors our
young men can be induced to
risk their salaries at a game
where all the cards are stacked
and dealt out against them. We
have no word of criticism against
the legal exchange where men
legitimately engaged in the cotton
business can place their par
Dhases or sales for future receipt or
delivery of the actual commodity.
Under existing conditions the
buyer and the seller are forced
to operate in the future to a great
extent, but the people who buy
