Bat Governor Cander, of
Georgia, and his staff are no# complaiaiog
thif. they were atribbii. It
appears that the Governor ami ti:s
staff were in the processiou, bat they
are pat out because the Georgians
were not put ia the front, and because
Governor Candler was not placed
along side of Hampton and Gordon to
review the parade. All of this sounds
jast a little silly. Ererybod. couldn't
be given first place, and it is a little
dia^natinsr to hear of s-uch complaints.
Q r?
On all such public occasions, there
is always a supersensitive element
who ares.) easily insultedand who
teel themselves slighted and snubbed
no?matter what bappeas. The Cbirlestou
reunion would have been a
most remarkable exception, if sjmebody
had not felt slighted. More or
less confasion will necessarily exist at
such assemblages, an J aome oversights
more or les* serious are to be
expected. Frequently ihay can not
be explained, ani the best tbin^ to do
is to say fast as little about them as
The advance made in the past year
towards Imperialism, by tbe administration
at Washington, should cause
voters and lovers of liberty to paaee
and consider where we are being led.
The President, who is the head of

this came the greed for what belonged
to others too weak t > prevent
our robbing then;. The Republican
party, with its accustomed facility for
finding reasons ?atisfa3tory to itself
foi acytbingit want3 (o do, and with
the boldness of its purposes under
the lead of the very Prasident who had
spoken so strongly against Ihe "crime
of aggression" so recently forced from
poor old Spain her titles to her colonies?mere
shadows of titles?and proceeded
to the "forcible aggression" of
the homes and lives of a people who
had about won them from the rale of
the alien. Having taken the first step
to imperialism, the second, a large
army, was demanded and established.
Now the third; the seizure of private
mail because it contained criticisms of
the administration in power. Let
those who love the liberty boasted of
by Americans, the liberty proclaimed
by old independence beli in Pbila
delphia over an haodred years ago
reflect where we are being led, before
it is too late.
General Wheeler's remarks in
bis speech, at the reunion, in favor of
expansion were in bad taste, and it is
* to be regretted that he sLonld have
said anything about "our new foreign
policy." Besides, thsre is no force in |
his statement that the vist territory j
added to the United States in the past j
was under Southern Presidents. The
case ia quite different now. Then we
were acquiring contiguous territory
suitable in clitnatc and every other respect
for Americans; in fact it was
African territory, and the new territory
then acquired did not require a
tremendous army and navy to protect
and to keep the inhabitants in subjection.
The case is quite different
now. He would have the United
States take territoiy on the other side
of the world and with it millions of a
half civilized people?wholly unfit to
attain to the standard ot American
General Wheeler is a great old hers.
The South is proud of him, and it
gladly honors him, but the conservative
old South still holds to the fund a
mental principle that government derives
its just powers from the consent
of the governed.

The coart of inqairy into the army
rations is followed.by genera.! investigations
iDto the kind of food people
have to eat. Prof.Mitchell, analytical
chemist of the Wisconsin dairy aud
food commission, has been making
some startling revelations. A fellow
can't be too careful about bis food,
and care should be taken not so much
as to what he eat3 as where ho bays it.
"The a.-e of antisceptics as preservu- j
lives," says Prof. Mitehsl!, ''has be- j
come alarmingly great. They are used
as coloring and to stop ths development
of germs in dairy products;
also in chopped meats, bulk oysters,
rieb, hams and possibly corned beef."
Samborger steak is considered a
great islicacy, bu% after Prof. Milchell'i
statement, that it is treated with
what is known as sulphide of coda,
Hamburger steak should be eaten
sparingly, if at all.
After al', we people in the South
on#rht not to be alarmed, Jfcor there i3
no reason why we can not produce,
everything we eat right here at home,
and thns make it absolutely sure that
we are using food that is wholesome
and absolutely free from all chemicals.
In all of this dry weather, in the
last ot spring, the roads are reported
in a bat condition. The road (o
White Oak fromJWinnsboro, normally
a good roud, is rough and exceedingly
uncomfortable for travelling in vehicle*.
Tne experience |of the last
fewyear-s is enough to convince people
that if they are going to have good
roads they must go down In iheir
pockets and pay l'or them. The chaingang
does very well a? far as its re
sources go, but good roads will not be
obtained 'intil the people make up
tbeir minus to have macadam roads.
Ordinary dirt thrown op ia the middle
of a road will either wash away or
become so badly cut fcby narrow tire3
that riding in a buggy across farrows
is jast about as easy.

Col?T J Moore Says Sow Oats iu August.
Spaitanburv Free Lance.
Editor of The Free Lance: Believing
that our want of sacscs3 iu oat
raising was due to our time of sowing,
I determined last year to pnt my theory
to the test, and so commenced in
August to turn under (with two-horse
torn-plows) hog weeds and crab gras3,
after wheat_ the former being as high
as my head and as thick,as they could
stand; the latter a fine growth. Your
friend, Col. T. L Gantt, passed here
! whilst I was doing it, and as good as
said I was wasting time, which I
j rath?r thought myself, as neither he
nor I had any opinion of turning under
green crop*. Well, immediately after
the field was plowed, C sowed two
biTsbels of oats to the acre, and barrowod
i?>, net expecting a staud from
I fermentaiion. To my astonishment
[every grain seemed to germinate and
commenced to yrow right along. Today
tbev are the finest oats I ever
raised. Recently J. Monroe O'Sbields
passed the field, and remarked, "there
are some mighty fine oats downiu that
flat yonder, they will mate 75 bushed
per acre." So much for Col. Gautt's
i and my jadgmsnt.
j I continued sowing daring Septem

To the t'armeis, :li3refore, I would say

and October.

courage, he 'persuaded him not to
"give up'* the cause of which he was
and is the chicf representative, the
cause of the independence of his
country, and when the same passenger
was "very much discouraged" over
the "indifference of the natives to his
coming," the chiet representatives of
the United Slates in the islands, "told
him not to give up, but try again" and
finally fairly clubbed him asbore and
"rold him to fight."
It is not a violent assumption certainly
to say tbat what the Admiral
meant wheu he "persuaded" the
Filipino leader "not to give up," but
to fry "c^ain" for, and to "fighi"
"8gaiu" for, was plainly the cau*e be

not the cause ot substituting the ?ov

Admiral Dewey is iu nowise to
blame, of course, for giving such 1
counsel, aud he has never been blamed,
in fact, for giving it. He discharged
his mission according to the orders by
which he was then guided. He is iu
no degree responsible for what has
followed the change in our policy to

they wholly responsible. Somebody

Lieutenant Lee had no superior in
he rpgim?n* ?? ?, horseman, and he
inally beoa.uo i .c proud owner of
Jamble Bee, ene of the fastest and i
nost if moti3 horses in the r.'gimenf.
5umble Bee had cnt a sreat figure in a
mmber of races, campa:gn* and Iaiian
fights before Lee owned him- He
lad won, a year or so before, a famous
ace known as the "Fort Mason Derjy,"
against Lieutenant Jenifer's well*

charger in tbe regiment. Bumo!c
Bee was a slashing, thorou?horel
Grlencoe colt, by imported Glenc ?e.
He bad great style, and, for a large ;
borse, was a perfect working atrmal I
Power, courage and activity were in j
svery line of him. He wa< one of liie
fastest horses in Texas, but wa< wild,
untamable and difficult to innnage.
He was ^ great for a thousand \aids
3asb, bul~ beyond tbat di-itanc.i he
would tbrow up bis tail and )o<e his
great, slashing stride, and become unreliable
and often vicious. He w.n?
also bard to start well, bat when weil
far-tort ha rone s fearer for soet-d.
Fitz Lee loved this horse the moment |
he first laid eye3 on him, and dete.mined
to be his owner. He fina'Jy |
bought him from Captain Nathan G. j
Evans ("Shanks Evans"), of the regiment,
When Lee had fully recovered j
from his arrow wound a famou? race j
was gotten up at Camp Radziminski, j
between Lientenant Lee and Lieutenant
WiHiam B. Koyall, in which each
man was to ride his own horse. Lee,
of course, brought out Bumble Bee
against anything in horse flesh Lien- J
tenant Koyall had a horse he had
bought at Fort Smith, Ark., which,
like Bumble Bee, had won every race
he had been in until lhat time.
The race was run in the presence of
the entire garrison, and stands in the
traditions of the old Second Cavalry
as a memorable event. Bumble Bee,
as nsnal, was nervoa3 and frantic at
the race in prospect. His start was
bad, and it seemed as if be never
would catch np his famous long stride.
His eyes flashed out his wicked temper,
and his ugly head wan held well
up, relieved, however', by his beautilu1,
small and clean-cut ears. Lieutenant
Lee rode him as he alone knew
how to^ride, and managed himadmira
bly. The race was% a cioee one, dul
Bumble Bee, amid great htirrah3 and
flag waving, scored another victory.
When Lieutenant Lee wan detailed
afterwards to dnty as instructor in
cavalry lactics at West Point he sold
Bumble Bee at Sau Antonio, and he
passed into unknown hands.?William

Now that the Wade court of inquiry
has made its report on lienerai Junes'
chaiges against the army beef, and the
findings have been approved by the
President, it is to be hoped, for the
sake of the country at large, that no
board of investigation will be appointed
to clear up the charges that
will be brought against the Wade
court, by those who fall under its condemnation.
Then, too, the court has,
