WEDNESDAY, MAR. 16,1904.
. ? HON GEO. W. CROFT.
. The untimely death cf Congress
man George W. Croft has caused
profound sorrow, especially
throughout tho second congres
sional district. Although he had
. been repeat idly honored by beinp
elected to a seat ia the legisla
tive halls of his state, he had juBl
entered upon-serving one year
"that larger field, the national con
" gross. Col. Croft was easily class
ed among the ablest' lawyers of
South Caiolina, haviogbeen twice
.elected president of the sta'e bar
association. His demise is a dis
tinct loss and his place cannot
easily be filled.
It seems that " mountain dew"
is about to become as common in
Greenwood county ss iu Green
ville, Pickena, Oconee and o'herB
of "moonshine" fame. A few days
ago another full fledged illicit
distillery was seized near Kirkeey,
. It is probable that the projected
trolley line from Anderson to
Greenville will yet^ materialize.
These electric roads pay hand
somely wherever built, so let us
hope' that if constructed from
Green ville to Anderson that it
will be continued to Greenwood,
thence to Augusta via Edgefield.
Governor Heyward has issued a
proclamation ordering an election
to be held on the 17th of May to
ttlmni mu?*milieu1 ' m??mmf ii'niTi lill'
second district. The State execu
tive committee will meet on the
22nd inst, to arrange for a prima
Will the liquor bosses permit
the people to nominate dispensers
this year? If not *hy not?-New
If these bosses are true to Dem -
ocratic principles the dispensers
will be nominated by the people
in the primary. Nothing is more
undemocratic than the election of
iBese officers by boards.
In this day and generation when
brutes in human form are stalking
the earth, girls should be taught
to use fire-arms. By means of a
revolver a yoang lady, residing in
Virginia, drove away a mid-night
intruder who endeavored to force
admission into her room. If ladies
could use a revolver deftly they
would feel more secure when clone
in their homes. Let the women be
taught the use of fire-arms and
the men untaught.
Hon. L. J. Williams stated tous
on^onduy that he is in the race
for congress for the unexpired
term. Having announced already
thatjhe would be in the congressioD
al race this summer his candidacy
has been favorably commented
upon in every section of the dis
trict, and, mark our prediction,
tb?-man who beats L. J. Williams,
can such a one be found, will re

It seems that editors have ,a
-very decided penchant for dispen
sary jobs. Scarcely had Hon. John
Bell Towill, of the Batesburg Ad
v?cate, received his commission
as a member of the board of di
rectors before Mr. James T. Parks,
who founded the short-lived "Edge
field Farmer." and is now editor
and proprietor of the Orangebnrg ?

Creeper of the dispensary. What ?

our names, by some hookorcrook,

and, furthermore, by the time we
had tasted the samples of the 37
drummers who sold the 700 bar- >"

A. Paper Prepared and Read by
Mrs W. S, Middleton before
tbe recent Teacbers*
(Continued from la t Week.)
It is quite a treat to little people to
be allowed uo work at, or write on the
board, and to give those who do their
"seat work" well, that, as a "reward of
merit," is a stimulus to quick addi
tion. If it can be prevented I do not
permit counting on the fingers, tho' in
the summer I have seen pupils count
on their toes when hands were hidden.
After children have been drilled
orally in the addition to ten they
should be able to do ic without object
counting,-in other words in the ab
stract. An excellent drill is to count
by 5's, say in all possible beginnings
up to ten; lirst "one, six," then, "two,
In language, work short stories
read to them, form a basis for begin
nings, requiring the child to relate
what has been read, correcting mis
takes in English and endeavoring to
eliminate some of the "ands" which
punctuate small childrens speech As
soon as the children arc far enough
advanced to write without its being
too great a muscular tax, I have the
reproduction done with pencil. Then
the criticisms should be made indi
vidually, too, in order to show each
child his or ter failures, at first giving
very little attention to the memory
part of the work, but emphasizing the
mistakes or successes in -use of lan
guage, punctuation and capitalization.
Books for this purpose which have
been used successfully were-Enoch
Arden, Courtship of Miles Standish,
Ten Boys Who Lived on the Road
from Long Ago to Now. Se\ en Little
Sisters. Stories Mother Nature told
her children, Dicken'? Christmas
Carol, and Story of Little Nell. While
with advanced, even beyond this, I
sometimes suggest the reading of a
book after which I ask to be told of it.
My fellow teachers can easily see in
all this that the pupil, gains a langu
age lesson, a peep in to the beautiful
realm of literature with all its alluring
charms, and a cultivation for the best
of those charms, also a beautiful truth
or picture of life, maybe on a low rung
of the social ladder, lived so nobly
that it reachei into tlte great, beyond !
and walks into the kingdom of God.
Almost all the parts'of speech may I
be taught to a class,-that is, to re
cognize them as of the same class ol'
words without knowing names of the
different classes, by talks on language
in which the child is led to do the
classifying, a3, of objects; of words
that perform acts, of descriptive words
of various degrees of comparison, by
placing objects of the different sizes,
or even their own ages may form a
basis of comparison, as'-I am old, Tom
is older, but you are the oldest."
As a male I'd say, teach truth, both
by example and preempt to primary
classes. Teach them cleanliness which
is next to Godliness, that time spent
in brushing theclothes, hair and teetn,
is no more wasted than that spent in
making good resolutions. Teach the
beauty of a life of service, the majesty
and dignity of labo;-; that work is no
disgrace, but if poorly done, the doer
Teach purity of life,-that it must
be of thought, word, and deed, and
that the fruits of the Spirit-meekness
gentleness, patience, king-sulTering
are worth while.
Don't have too many "don'tsv and
rules, bot enlorce those you have;
don't expect children tc sit as still
and quiet as grown people, and for an
example of h.>w welt these latter de
serve thpse last adjectives applied to
them, i-.otice in church on next ?Sunuay
morning and see how many of them
go into "God's House" ina quiet re
verential manner and remain perfect
ly quiet thro' the service. And do not
WVNPGYt?S atfa B.?sVmTnfr'have
seen schools presided over, by teach
ers so cold, that they were like ice
bergs, and the order was so perfect,
that there seemed to be no room for a
new ides, lest it disturb the routine.
Understand, that I believe, in method,
but not carried beyond "moderation
that silken skein running tbro' the
pearls of virtues."
And last, but nol least, if you do not
love to teach, do cot teach primary
grades, whatever you do 1 ! Those first
yean? are the most important in the
child's mental life, and a wrong move
may mar a character, or a whole men
tal life any way. Do not give up
study of all the great teacher's espe
cially that most important, the Great
Teacher who said, "suffer little chil
dren to come unto me and forbid them
not for of such is the Kingdom of
What is Life ?
In the last analysis nobody
knows, but we do kuow that it is
under strict law. Abuse that law
even ?lightly, paiu results. Irre
gular living means derangement
of the organs, resulting iu Consti
pation, Headache or Liver trouble.

re-adjusts this. It's gentle, yet

Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncommon
for a child to be born
afflicted with weak kid

urine scalds the flesh or If, when the child
reaches an age when it should be able to
control the passage, it is yet afflicted with
bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cause of
the d:'Acuity is kidney trouble, and the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due a diseased condition of the .
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as !
most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made mis
