a suggestion to make-that some
of these "fire> baptized" brethren
go on and make an effort for one
higher step-that of translation
like Enoch or Elijah.
We do not read that this method
of departure from life was to b"?
confined to these eminent men of
God, and if the fire-baptized" are
still liable to be again tempted

as even to imperil- their salvation,
why not make an effort to get out

There have been two more deaths
at Clemson College. The special
committe'e of the State Board of
health found that it was an epi

so report to the trastees. In their
report they will suggest that the
cause of the fever is from a spring

the sanitary condition of the insti

none. The troubles will all be
remedied at once, as suggested by
the State board of health.
AN ARMY OF TRAMPS.
Tramps seem to have taken the
West. A dispatch from Denver,
Col., says :
"An army of 15,000 tramps is
moving westward. At present it
is in Kansas. It is approaching
in four divisions, following the va
rious lines of railways, and so
troublesome has it become that
the people have petitioned the
railroads to carry them on to the
coast. They forage upon the
country until there is nothing left.
The tramps beg everything in the
way of old clothes, money and
meals, and the inhabitants have
begun to look upon the movement
as A serious matter. The Union
Pacific and the Mississippi Pacific
have placed shotguns and guards
on their trains.
Last week a tramp named Bailey
was killed at Salina by a brake
man named Callahan. He was
riding on the break beam. The
brakeman descended and, it is said,
kicked Bailey with such violence
that be fell and was ground under
the wheels. The tramps infest the
wheat and corn fields at night.
Such is the story told by Jas. j
Wright of Topeka, a prominent
railway and express officer, who ie j
stopping at the Windsor. Tbf
tramps will pass through Colorado
on their way to th*- Pacific coast,;
in the wake of the Christian En
deavor Contention excursions.
They ?*y that they are endeavor
ing to secure work in the irrigated
valleys of the West. What they
?-II do when they reach the coast
is a question. They have no means
and an a menace.

IBBY VS. MCLAURIN.
Carolina Congressmen in Wash
ington Were Interviewed
Washington, July 1.-The
; announcement of Irby's candidacy
against Mclaurin was not a sur
prise here. The South Carolina
congre ssmen all agree that means
a hot, fierce, typical "Reform"
campaign, and no member of the
delegation is willing to go on
record in predicting the result.
Mr. Latimer saids "I am not
committed, and I told McLaurin
sc yesterday, I told McLaurin so
yesterday, I have no concealments
in the matter. If McLaurin's
election means a combination to
defeat Tillman's re-eleetion, I am
against him. Until all doubt in
that direction is removed I have
anothing to say, and whilst 1 may

Representative Wilsen said:
"It will be a sizzling hot fight from
start to finish. Irby ls one of
McLaurin's discoverers. He
cousid^n d him at one time the
peer of Calhoun and Hayne in
ability and: statesmanship, and
McLaurin's rhetorical efforts in

career." "If he doesn't flunk when
