EDITORIAL GRAPE SHOT.
Admiration alone will not run
a newspaper. Sooner or later
such admirers will find that the
object lof their affections
has become wedded to other
ways that they do not admire
in other words a newspaper is
compelled in order to live, to seek
the friendship of those who are
not so piatonic in their love, but
unite their practical esteem with
sentiment that binds mutual ad:
miration in other professions.
There are too many men who
expect an editor to slave in de -
fense of their pet notions and
hobbies, advocate their views
against the strongest opposition
and then coolly withhold the
business support by which alone
a small newspaper can live.
Who wouldn't be a farmer
There is just one trouble, only
the farmers know how to farm.

who would like to quit the towns
and cities, take up a life in thE

of broad fertile fields and under.

We wonder how many par

Smuallpox Over State
Smallpox has broken out in
several towns of this state, and
it would be well for the people I
of Bamberg to look after the
matter of vaccination. We hadl a
a few cases of this disease here r
several years ago, which cost b
the town considerable money, t
and another such experience as
this should be avoided. The11
only way to prevent it is to have
everybody vaccinated, and yet a
there are lots of people here who
are not vaccinated. "An ounce
of prevention is worth a pound a
of cure.'"-Bamberg Herald. .
Words To Freeze The Soul.
"Your son has Consumption. His
case is hopeless." These appalling words
wore spoken to Geo. E. Blevens, a lead

two expert doctors-one a lung specia- E
list. Then was shown the wonderful
power of Dr. King's New Discovery. a
"After three neeks use," writes Mr.
Blevens, "he was as well as ever, I
would not take all the money in the
world for what it did for my boy." In
fallible for Coughs and Colds, its the
safest, surest cure of desparate Lung
diseases on earth. 50c and $1.00 at all

It may be that the road will Ic

there is little hope for the aim of

time, looking at it from the rail
