Difficulties of Prov

Life After Death
By WILLIAM T. STEAD. English Editor.
SHE recent applications of electricity in wireless teleg
raphy and wireless telephoning, while proving noth
ing in themselves as to the nature or permanence oj
personality, are valuable as enabling us to illustrat<
the difficulties of proving the EXISTENCE 01
+4+ + LTFE AFTER DEATH.
If Christopher Columbus after discovering America had beer
unable to sail back across the Atlantic, Europe would, after a time
have concluded that he had PERISHED IN AN OCEAN WHICII
HAD NO FARTHER SHORE. If innumerable other voyagers
had set out on the same westward journey and had never returned
this conviction would have deepened into an absolute certainty.
Now, let us transport ourselves from the time of Columbus to ou
own day. The terrors of the unknown world would not daunt forevei
the intrepid spirits of European explorers. A ship or ships would be
equipped to cross the Atlantic. When their crews and passengers
landed on the farther shore they would discover that those who were
thought to have perished had founded a great commonwealth in the
The newcomers would at once endeavor to UTILIZE ALL THE
RESOURCES OF MODERN SCIENCE to enable them to com
inunicate their great discovery to the old world. They would en
deavor to extend the use of wireless telegraphy. After awhile a
wireless message from Ameri- might by some happy chance be
caught on some seacoast Marconi station.
HOW WOULD - IT BE RECEIVED? IN ALL PROBABILITY IT
WOULD BE FR ENTARY, INCOHERENT AND APPARENTLY PUR
W. IT WOULD BE SET DOWN TO SOME PRACTICAL
JOKER OR REGARDED AS SOME RANDOM MESSAGE SENT OU1
FROM SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE. AND SO FOR A LONG TIME
THE ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE It, N"AATION WOULD FAIL
AFTER AN INTERVAL A MORE COHERENT MESSAGE WOULD AR
RIVE. EFFORTS WOULD BE MADE TO ANSWER, BUT THE RE
PLIES MIGHT BE 80 MUTILATED AS TO BE UNINTELLIGIBLE.
A few cranks who had never lost the faith, traditional and dim,
that there was a world beyond the seething waste of waters would
go on experimenting, wasting time and money and exposing them
selves to the ridicule of the scientific world.
At last, after innumerable disappointments, some method would be
discovered of dispatching replies and of receiving answers. At lasi
the scientific world would wake up to the recognition of the fact that
a prima facie case had been made out for the strange, almost incredi
ble phenomena that seemed to point to the possibility that there was
ANOTHER WORLD BEYOND THE "ATLANTIC and that its
inhabitants could, by meais of wireless telegraphy, communicate witl
THE DIFFICULTIES THEY WOULD ENCOUNTER WOULD BE
THE IDENTICAL DIFFICULTIES WHICH CONFRONT US IN OUlF
QUEST FOR CERTAINTY AS TO THE LIFE AFTER DEATH. BUT
WITH PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE AND CPREFUL ALLOW

Lewis Loyd Out Agin.
Notorious Marlboro Negro Escapes
From Pickens Jail.
An advertisement in the State cc
a few days ago offered a reward fc
of $25 for the arrest and deten- di
tion of Lewis Loyd, who boke
out of the Pickens jail on Jan. d(
26, 1909. le
This recalls some of the in
teresting history of this daring
and notorious negro. He has it
been convicted here several e
times for buglary, and has sev- 0
eral times broken out of the at
Marlboro jail and chaingang. a(
Some months ago he was
serving a term on the chain- cc
gang' and escaped near Clio. i
The next heard from him he t
had broken into a store at Pick
ens, and the Pickens authorities hi
offered $25 for his capture. Su- b]
pervisor Frank Manning also Y
offered $10 for him.
Joe Hinson went to work and ct
captured Lewis at the house of
a woman whom Lewis was vis
iting in this country. He was t
put back into the chaingang,
and Mr. Manning paid Mr. Hin
son the reward he had offered.
Mr. Hinson notified the Pick
ens people that he had Lewis
and would deliver him to them
and claim the reward as soon as
he served out his time here.
The Pickens authorities then
went to work and got an order
from a Judge to take him out
of the chaingang here and car
ry him to Pickens for trial, and Cl
the Pickens sheriff came and
got him. Mr. Hinson was not
paid the $25 reward, however, b
and he has not been able to hear U
ny ning f rom Pickens in re
gard to it.
Now Loyd has broken out of d
the Pickens jail, ved they are be
offering $.5 reward for him
It is said that no jail or shack- 0r
les will hold Loyd. He always 0r
manages to get away, but he to
goes right on and gets into more
trouble and gets caught again. P
He has been known to go into
bed rooms and steal clothing to
and other articles without wak- o
ing the occ'upants.

Advice to a Young Man.
Remember, my son, you have sa
to work. Whether you handle t]
a pick or a pen, a wheelbarrow
or a set of books, dig ditches or
edit a paper, ring an auction y
bell or write funny things-you c<
must work. If you will look ci
around1, you will see the men n
who are the most able to live.
the rest of their days without it
work are the men who work the ii
hardest. Don't fear of killing si
vourself by overwork. It is be
Ivond vouir power to do that on
the sunny side of thirty. They
(lie sometimes, but it's because
they quit work at 6 p. mn. It's
the interval that kills, my son.
The work gives you a perfect a
and grateful appreciation of a si
holiday. There are young men' p
who do not work, but the world
is not proud of thenm: it simply ~
speaks of them as old So-and So's h
boys. Nobody likes them; the
great busy world doesn't know
that they are there. So find out ,
what you want to be and do,
and take off y-our coat and make
dlust in the world. The busier
you are the less harm you will I
be apt to get into, the sweeter s~
von will sleep. the brighter and
happier your holidays, and then
better satisfied the world will be f'
with you.-Bob Burdett. T

The Whole Country Is Leaning
' There are, according to the repc
e to the railroads, 360,000 cars and h
dreds of engines idle, whereas a y
ago there were not enough to ca
the freight offered. Such an enorm
shrinkage of business on the railro
d is a pretty good barometer of busin
h depression elsewhere. Another ij
S cation of business stagnation is
d iron trade, which only produced a
tle over 1,000,000 tons of pig i
in January compared with 2,3
I 000 tons in October. But as
.s trust controls the iron industry it is
d longer as reliable a trade barome

spite of the falling off in the demE
e for its products, has determined
e maintain prices. Before the organ]
