During the Confedeiate war it was
often difficult after a battle to identify
the dead, hence many graves were
marked "unknown.7' This is to be
obviated in the on-coming Cuban war
in a novel way, as follows : The United
States government has ordered a large
number of aluminum tags, something
like tass on guano bags, to be fast
ened on each soldier or sailor with his
name and command stamped thereon,
so that there would be no failure to
identify in case of death in battle. For
illustration, a tag on Sam Taylor will
read as follows: "Sam Taylor, captain
commanding battleship Ultimatum,
marked for promotion to command a
Naval Squadron;" sucb a tag would
not oniy be a perfect means ol' identi
fication, but make a lovely epitaph for
Capt. Taylor's marble shaft..
For the honorable position of a seat
in the House ol' Representatives, we
publish this week the announcement
of P. li. Mayson, Esq., of our local bar.
It is not our purpose to print a pane
gyric ol' this gentleman, or to speak in
detail of his merits, his qualities of
head or heart; it will suffice to say that
few citizens of Edgefield, county or
town, stand higher than Brooks May
son. As an indication of Mr. Mayson's
special fitness to be one of the law
makers for the commonwealth we
would cite the following: At the fall
term of 1S93 at our Edgefield court,
after the solicitor and jurors were on
the ground, a telegram was received
announcing the fact that. Jndge ,^Val- I
iace. was sick and unable to attend. |
Here was a dilemma, especially as it .
was discovered that under the law the ?
Governor had no authority to appoint
a substitute-to act in Che stead of the <
judge who was unable to come. In 1
this emergency Mr. Mayson, seeing at <
ouce the necessity for a law meeting ?
such a case, published an article in
this paper calling on the legislature to
pass an act curing the defect existing! I
The next legislature, acting on Mr. a
Mayson's wise.and timely suggestion, a
passed the law now standing on our
statute books giving the Governor the 8
power to appoint some one learned in
thelawto takeajudge's place should d

you to put $1.50 in, bul. now I want i
you to double that amount and i
put in $3.00. Give it to the pastor,
and let him take it in to the church
tomorrow." I asked her if her way ;
was bright and clear? "Oh ! yes," '
she said, "and it will be so svreet
to go home and meet all those who I

We regard such ideas as repug
nant to the genius of our institu
tions and injurious to the public
service. The people of a republic
should not tolerate the idea that,
when a fellow-citizen is elected to
a very high office, he becomes too
grand to hold afterwards a less
important one. Having been a
United Slates Senator or a Gov
ernor, a man is on\y the better
prepared to serve his fellow-citi
zeus as a member of the legisla
ture of his State; and, when the
less important office is offered to
him without a scramble, ie ought
not to decline it, if his c.rcum
stances are buch that he can ac
cept it without doing injustice to
himself or his family. The prac
tice of our greatest statesmen has.
been in accord with this view. A
glance at the polical careers of our
Presidents shows that many even
:>f them did not consider that the
molding of a ?erv important office

James Madison was four times
.lected a representative in Con

L797, he resigned the office; and,
he next year, he accepted a seat

United States. After he retired
.'rom the Presidency he was elected

In 1774, James Monroe was Uni

Two years later, he was a member
if the legislature of that State. In

that exalted office, he was elected

John Quiucv Adams was inau

We might, call attention to siini

Johnston and of other Presidents,
i? well as iii the careers of many
eminent statesmen who never oc

thal our greatest men have con sid-.

precedents, which accord so well
with our democratic institutions.
Ho can be elected to the Senate
this year without a scramble and
with but little exertion, no matter
who may oppose him. Let John

"THE RALSTON PEOPLE."
One of Their Methods.
The famous Ralston Club, with
Prof. Webster Edgerly, President
of tba Martyn College of Expres
sion and Physical Culture,
Washington, D. C., have made a
famous mark in the history of
the present epoch by their teach
ings aloug the line of health and
longevity. Their membership
suns up into the millions, and
among their rules may be found a
decided staud agaiuft the use of
any narcotics that teud to deaden
and destroy the nervous system
of the human body. They were
among the early opponents of
what is now known to be no more
or less than drugs, the good old
fashioned coffee and tea. The
human family can exist in spite of
the daily administration of drugs
aud give an outward sign of health
for perhaps some years, but when
the evidence of the use of the irug,
coffee, for inf tance, is shown by
daily or weekly attacks of illness
and uervous prostration, common
sense and a desire to exist comfor
tably, dictate its adandonment.
After castiDg about for some
years to discover a palatable and
nutritious beverage to be used at
table, and after many and repeated
trials of all sorts of so-called
'substitutes" for coffee, the well
known leader of the Ralston move
ment, Prof. Edgerly, writes as
"President's office, Washington,
D. C., Sept 20, 1897. Postum

It is true wisdom for every
body to take a thorough ocurso of
Swift's Specific just at this season
of the year. The blood-is sluggish
and impoverished, and the syctem
is full of imparities which shouid
be eliminated. In addition to
thoroughly cleansing the blood,

that abound doting tbs hot sum

matter to take th?a precaution but
it insures health and strength, eil

is far ahead of all other remedies
for this purpose. It is a real
blood remedy which promptly
purifies the blood and thorougirly
renovates the entire system, tonta
and strengthens the stomach, 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
bhe injurious effects of these drugs. '

ces are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
nsurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public.
Vhen a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
)ond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
nant which he can make at the end of twenty years. Experience and
itatistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
onger than the twenty-year period.
Men take ou large lines of insurance from age 30 to 40. The sn
aring twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
ip and being^educated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
less activity/ It covers the time when their families and business in
erests require .the greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
it 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
?haoged, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these ." .cts, The Provident Savi?gs issues a policy at a
ixed rate for twenty years, which includes onl; the cost of protection
ror that time. The premiums on this policy are iess than pne-half the
premiums charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wants insur
mce for protection only, this policy will supply his wants admirably.
Se is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
'uture which he may never reach; especially when he has need for
his deposit, and more, too, in his business.
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30
akes oue of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term rates of $14.91
1er annwm for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after
iwenty years, without medical re-examination, at rates for the age
ran. 24, '98.
