WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, 1902.
The St. Louis Exposition
which will eclipse all previous
ones has been postponed one
year, from 1903 to 1904.
The ^rice of silver on the
market today is lower than
ever before. The bullion
value of the silver in a dollar
is about 36 or 37 cents.
It has been announced that
the Virginia-Carolina Chemi
cal company, the so-called
fertilizer trust, will begin at
once to build a fertilizer fac
tory in Montgomery, Ala., to
cost $30Q,ooo or $400,000.
Judging from the prepara

Charleston is determined to
make the 22 nd of May,Wag

All strife, discord and fac

prevailed in the County con

Heaven grant that our peo
ple in the future will always
dwell together in unity and
brotherly love. Let "peace
on earth and good will toward
men" be our motto througn
out the cycle 3 of all time.
The Aiken Journal and
Review remarks that Edge
f*eld men have an inherited
dove for office. Grant it, con
temp orar}r, but we aver that,
being worthy sons of noble
sires, they have, along with
this penchant for office, also
inherited those qualities which
win for them the laurels of
vic .orv. The victories of
Edgefield men are so nu mer
ous as to become common
place, the outside world only
takes notice of their defeat.
A Jefferson Davis Day.
Honorable John J. McMa
han, the aggressive and pro
gressive State Superintendaut
of Education, is urging the
teachers of South Carolina to
set apart one day at the close
of their school to be known
as Jefferson Davis day. This
is a good suggestion While
the thousands of children are
studying in a general way the
.history of our country it is
proper and appropriate that at
stated times these frets and
figures of history be brought
home to them, thereby engen
dering a patriotic sentiment
in their breasts. The heroism,
deeds of valor and achieve
ments of their fathers in the
Civil war and the sacrifices
and loyalty of the fair women
of the Southland during that
bloody struggle should not be
forgotten by them. All of
the schools in the county
should have a Jefferson Davis
lay. A pro-am has been
?repared by Miss Withers,
the assistant to the State Su
perintendent. If you will
vrite to the county superin
endent he will procure these
*ograms for you.
The small town of Cross
Hill, Laurens county, has a
newly established broom fac
tory." Tho product of the
'actory sells readily.
THE CLEMSON TROUBLE.
Sixty-nine of the Sopho
more class of Clemson college
have deserted in a bod)', only
five members of the class re
maining. The reason they
give for this action is that the
president and faculty disci
plined too severely Cadet
Thornwell, of Fort Mill, by
suspending him for the re
mainder of the session for
taking four glass tubes from
the laboratory after notice
had been given that the next
cadet who was guilty of this
offense would be *'severely
dealt with." The class pe
titioned the president to rein
state Cadet Thornwell which,
of course, he declined to do
and they thereupon shook the
dust from their feet and left.
The truth of the matter is
there has been for some time
friction between the corps and
some members of the faculty
and this is only a culmination
of the trouble. The moral
tone and standard of the col
lege has never been high and
matters have been drifting
from bad to worse. This
misfortune or blow will be
overruled for good by purg
ing the institution of an in
subordinate element, and im
pressing those who remain
with the fact that author
ity must be respected and
A young man on entering
college and especially one in
which military .discipline ob
tains . should make up his
mind to conform to the rules
or regulations or stay a4 home.
That military discipline is
rigid and the yoke galling at
times is true, but it will make
a man of almost any lad.
Military law knows no con
cession; violation calls for
punishment. A "strike" in
a military school cannot be
arbitrated. The. crying need
today of many a college is
that the student body be m ade
to understand that it must
conform to the rules and reg
illations of the institution and
that the standard of the insti
tution will not be made to
conform to the will of the
Sinee writing the *b^Ye tne
?nt color to the whole affair.
As a matter of fact Cadet
Thornwell did not take the
tubes from the laboratory as
above stated, but only carried
[them from the professor's
desk to his own. There seems
to be no doubt that President
Hartzog and the faculty erred
by inflicting punishment more
severe than the offense war
The Board of Trustees will
investigate the whole affair
thoroughly at an early date,
then the facts will be correct

The Human Lottery
"Ah, i f only I were beautiful
how happy ll fe would be."
Many a forlorn mild has said this as che
looked into tho mirror. For beauty women
have sacrificed borne, love and friends. It is
the ono possession in the lottery of human
life which women would not refuse
. . BRADFIELD S
for young girls on the threshold of woman
hood, has been invaluable. When they be
come pale and languid, the eyes dull,
aching hoad, feet and hands cold, appetite
gone or abnormal, obstructed periods and
painful menses, and their systems general
ly rna dows, tney need building up, and
their blood needs cleansing.
Bradfleld's Peaiale Regulator for women
is particularl valuable and useful owing
to itt tonio p* jpertie j to build up the sys
tem, and as a regulator of the menstrual
flows. Painful, obstructed and suppressed
menstruation permanently relievea and all
diseases peouuar to ber genital orgsns are
cured by it.
Regulator . .earn the complexion, bright
ens the eye, sharpens the appetite, removes
muddy esq blot-nod ocr.dillons of the skin
and cure? sick headache to a certainty by
removing the canse.
