Such was the very emphatic
language used by Col. R. B. Wat
son, the sage of Saluda, yesterday
in reply to the question if he we ie
unwavering in his determination
to enter the gubernatorial contest.
It is generally thought, and
wrongfully so, that Col. Watson is
an enemy to the State educational
institutions. In reply to a ques-?
tion along this line, he said that!
such was not the case. His educa
tional theory is to build up always,
totear down never. Help along
the common schools; restrain the
young men from entering State
colleges at tho expense of the State
until they are prepared. Lack of
preparation injures the work of the
college and deprives fitting schools
of much support. He disclaims
being an enemy to the State insti
tutions of learning, and always
voted for the appropriations tor
each, but he thinks that there
should be more economy practiced
in these institutions. They should
be conducted with ns little ex
travagance as the denominational
schools. The colonel is a graduate
of Forman and is of course a
staunch friend of denominational
schools, but he is not an enemy to!
State institutions. There is a de-!
maud for both.
Col. Watson is flat-footed for the
dispensary. On account of bis
well known hatred of the selling
and drinking of liquor, he has
since last December received many
letters asking him to carry the pro
At the meeting of the prohibi
tionists of Saluda county, Col.
"Watson tfas elected a deli gate to
the State convention. He was not
at the county convention and will
not attend the State convention,
j for he is not in sympathy with ihe
?movement. It appears too much
like politics to him.
There is no greater prohibition
ist (in the true sense of the word)
in the State than Col. Watson. He
does not know the taste of whis
key. In his immediate commu
nity he has educaied a generation
of anti-liquor people. The white
people regard it too disreputable
to sell whiskey, and the negroes
don't dare do it.
For mau/years past, whenever
he has disposed ot any land, there
was always a proviso in tho title
that should the purchaser engage
in selling liquor, he looses the right
to the title.

to come. If the leaders in the

to first ?ducate the people to quit

one of the many internal medicines ad
vertised to do unreasonable things, but a
scientifically prepared liniment especially
effective in adding strength and elasticity
to those parts of woman's organism which
bear thc severest strains of childbirth.
The liniment may be used at any and
all times during pregnancy up to thc
very hour of confinement. The earlier it
is begun, and the longer used, the more
perfect will be the result, but it has been
used during the last mouth only with
great benefit and success.

thoroughly cleansing the blood,
and toning up the system so as to
avoid loss of appetite and a geii
eral run-down feeling in :the

many forms of dangerous illness
that abound during the hot slim

matter to take this precaution bat
it insures health and strength all

is far ahead of all other remedies
for this purpose. It is a real
blood remedy which promptly
purifies the blood and thoroughly
renovates the entire system, tones
and strengthens tho stomaoh, and
renews the appetite. It is the
only safe tonic, being purely vege
table, and the only blood remedy
guaranteed to contain no arsenic,
sulphur, mercury, potash or other
mineral substance, which is of so
much importance to all who know
the injurious effects of these drugs.

TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a lo.ig time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public
When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which be can make at the end of twenty years. ^Experience and
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer than the twenty-year period.
Men take on large lines of insurance from age 30 to 40. The e"
suiug.twenty years cover the period when their farr il ies are growing
up and being^educated ; it also covers the period of their greatetst busi
ness activity, lt covers the time when their families and business in
terests require^the greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these fae's, The Provident. Savings issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than one-half the
premiu ns charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wants insur
ance fe protection only, this policy will supply his wants admi.ably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
future which he may never reach ; especially when he has need for
this deposit, and more, too, in his business.
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30
takes one of these Policies for #1,000 at the regular term rates of $14.91
per annum for twenty years. This policy can be coutinued, after
twenty years, without medical re-examination, at'rates for the age
