PICKENS, s. c.
You can't tell much about the slzo
of the man In the grave by the size
of the tombstone, moralizes Ram's
Horn.
When Opportunity knocks, laments
the Commoner, the sound is usually
drowned by the noise of the knocker
on the inside.
As a proof that women are extravagant,
insists the Hill City (Kan.) New
Era, we call your attention to tlio
fart that many a widow does $50
worth of grieving over the loss o? a
thirty-cent man.
The idea of teaching every girl to
thump the piano and every hoy to
be a bookkeeper will make potatoes
worth $S per barrel in another twenty
years, laments the Virginia
(Minn.) Enterprise.
Insists the San Francisco Chronicle:
Our enormous losses from fire
are the price we pay for the privilege
of permitting easy going city government
to allow people to construct lire
traps to live or do business in.
The child actress is born, not
drilled, dogmatizes Francis Wilson, in
Collier's. From the time she sits up
and babbles baby phrases she lives
in a mimic world. From the time
che learns to walk, she dances,
pirouettes and minces her way along.
Her "make-believe" world is full of
thrilling happenings, and so when her j
talent finds an outlet on the stage,
acting Is 110 effort, and she learns j
"lines" as the average baby girl abeorbs
and memorizes Mother Goose
jingles.
The automobile will lift the burden
from the back of the horse, and
meet the need of man for haste. Wo 1
shall have the horse for pleasant ;
journeys, sings the Newark Call,
when we would see the world calmly;
for the licliter labors- for
panionship; for the infinite satisfaction
which the noble animal gives tjv*
its every relation with mankjhd.

President David Starr Jordan, of
Iceland Stanford University, does not
agree with the California State Labor
Commission, which recent ly expressed
the belief that Japanese laborers
must be employed in the development
of California's agricultural interests,
"It may be true," he says, "that some
of tho fruit growers in California
have suffered from want of sufficient
labor, and this may have occasioned
a certain economic loss, but the question
of Asiatic emigration is so complex
tlia.t it- rnnnnt ho riiunnun/i
wholly on an economic basis. There
is more than one side to the matter.
A number of the people of California
are strongly opposed to having the
State inundated with a race which
must remain socially Inferior and
which cannot be amalgamated. These
people are content with the arrange-!
inent which has been made with
Japan. Japan has promised to keep
its laboring people from coming fo
the rnited States. This arrange
merit, I believe, is better for Japan
and better for California "
It is not at all probable that the
farmers of Massachusetts will object
to the proposed new method of tho
Inspection of milk destined for the
Boston market, once they realize that
it. will have many advantages, even
if calling for a little more care and
labor, argues the Boston Post. For
one thing, our producers will be
placed on an even basis with those
outside tho State, who will be com-1
polled to maintain dairies satisfactory j
to our authorities under penalty of
having their milk stopped at the border.
At present the outsider too often
has the better of the competition.

September came in with a continu

done nil in its power to recompense
for the changeable, unsatisfactor:
summer that had visited the earlie

i Two minutes ticked slowly by, and

a ; oroken and pointed in a jagged condit

Dorothy's slender fingers closed
spasmodically round the rough wood
Df the post. She shuddered as lie

s lier pallid lips.
s "Oh, Heaven! what am I to do?**
"Ah! I've got you now, hav n't I?

"Not dead!" she said once to herself,
in the same husky voice; "not

lethargy, and at his culminating in*
nult reared herself up In all her beauty,
and faced him.
"How dare you? Coward, cruel,
vile coward that you are! After all
the wrong you did me, have you no
fear? Take care! Bigamy is not a
nice word, and so surely as you hunt
me down, I will drag you down, too.
Then which will come out the worst,

wife, or the victim of your sin? How

am I not right when I tell you

He looked at her In sullen admiration.
"You were always a handsome girl,
Dolly," he Bald, after a pause; "but
on my life, you're perfectly beautiful
now, I begin to think I like you a.8
well as ever I did!"
She drew back with a shudder, and
her face grew a shade paler.
"George! George! don't torture
me! Tell me what you mean to do!
Let me know the worst?yes, the
very worst?or you will drive rno
mad! Do you want money? Well, I
have plenty; I will give you what you
want! Can I say more?"
"Money ain't everything," George
Laxon answered stolidly, but his
deep-blue eyes flashed for a moment.
Dorothv drew n sham hronth
faculties were slowly coming back to
her. She saw that he had taken the
bait, but. she was too clever to let
him see that she understood his drift.
As she sat there, facing this handsome,
common, vulgar man, she
loathed herself for the folly, the madness
that had seized her when sho
was just grown to budding girlhood,
the madness that made her forget all
pride and modesty; and plan?with
a cleverness worthy of a better cause
?and arrange so that she left her
convent school ostensibly to Intn hor
home, but In reality to fly to this mr.n
whose fancy had been pricked by her
young beauty and who, hearing that
sho was a great heiress, never hesitated
to pour forth long stories of ill
luck, which, coupled with i:is extraordinary
beauty had won him the
girl's passionate heart before he could
have begun to hope.
It was a strange story. George
I,axon, for reasons of his own, though
he had a plausible excuse ready for
Dorothy, refused to let their marriage
be known to Sir Robert immediately;
he took the girl into the heart of the
French capital and there kept her quietly
hidden while her father thought
of her as safe in her convent school
and the superior imagined her back
in the world, mistress of Knebwell
Hall. It was not long before Dorothy
I found her mistake. She had loved in
the same wild, unreasonable way as
she now loved Gervais, but it could
not last. The dingy life, the sense
oi something she did not quite understand,
all turned her into the cold,
heartless, selfish girl whose indifference
hud given Enid so much unhappiness,
and who might, had she had
softening influences, have been something
altogether better. Still no
thought of shame came to her as she
sat day after day, wearily waiting
for her child to be born. Vulgar
scoundrel, ne'er-do-well as he was,
she never dreamed but that George
Laxon was in truth her husband, till
her eyes were suddenly opened, and
such a tumult of degradation, horror
and hatred filled her breast as she
herself was hardly conscious of.
The poor creature whom Laxon had
. wjnuv mrt wiie nve years previously,
who through his had treatment had
' fallen into a rapid decline and for
whose death he was waiting before ho
took Dorothy back boldly to Knebwell
Hall, found her way to the room in
which the beautiful, proud girl had
lived during the past wretched
months, and where just three weeks
] before she had become a mother.
Even when she was alone and secure,
Dorothy could not endure to recall
what followed. She had frightened
the poor soul away by her passion,
and when George Laxon cama
in later she turned on him more liko
a mad woman than a young, highly
I uicu Kin wnose uencate beauty was
| alike the admiration and the curiosity
of the quarter in which they lived.
She declared that she should return
at once to her father, and knowing
the hold he had upon her, Laxon
was only too relieved to let her go;
