I "C TERMS:
fei ONE YEAR $1.50
WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 27,1905.
It is pretty gallii.g to a south
ern mau to feel that every time he
payB a life insurance premium he
"chips in" to swell the Republi
can campaign fund.
Doesn't ten-cents cotton give
everything a roseato hu? ? A few
years of good crops and good
prices would make the South en
tirely independent of the money
power the of North.'
The well on the public iquare
affords a very meagre supply of
water. Should a fire break out in
any of the stores, jail, court house,
or other buildings adjacent to the
public squarB the supply of water
would become exhausted in a few
minutes, and the business portion
of the town would be at the mercy
of flames. Not only would more
water be needed in case of fire but
the present supply is insufficient
for drinking purposes. The coun
cil should take the matter up at
once and increase the depth of
the public well so as to have an
ample-water supply for any exi
gency that may arise.
Governor Hey ward is not only
vigorously aiding and abetting in
the prosecution of the HoneaPath
lynchers but he is a'so very pro
perly calling the magistrate to ac
count for the inhuman burial that
was given the victim of the mob.
A brute may be guilty of a crime so
heinous and revolting as to cause
even good men to temporarily lose
their reason and take the law into
their own hands, but the murder
of the negro Pendletou is without
any semblance of justification.
Furthermore, the dragging of the
body into a hole and heaping dirt
-- upon it,calling it a burial, isa
^tigma upon Christian civiliza
tion. The guilty parties should
suffer the penalty of the law.
In discussing the dispensary
situation before a mass meeting
at Batesburg on Saturday Jase
Senator Tillman said : "I made up
my mind before speaking at
Marion that these speeches are
s* useless; but it will be different
.>next summer." Senator Tillman
spoke the ;4r?^
dispensary or uo dispensary, "peo"- "
pie are doing their own thinking
and voting. And it will not be
any different next summer, either.
A majority will vote for Senator
Tillman's re-election, likewise a
majority will vote AGAINST the
dispensary. That is to say, he has
many friends who will vote for
him but will NOT vote as he says
on this very momentous question.
The old line companies claim
to be writing insurance at cost
now, but think of how much cheap
er the same policies could be is
Bued were these companies to cut
down unreasonably large salaries,
leave off campaign contributions,
expensive banquets, and other sun
dry extravagances. Doubtless the
same condition of affairs would
be found were the limelight turned
^OEL-the fire insurance companies.
The present high rate may be
made necessary by reason of the
un buBiness-like and extravagant
management of the large compa
When Senator Tillman aBked
Director Towill at Batesburg why
the board bought $500,000 more
liquor than the law allowed, the
latter said: "With $250,000 old '
stock on hand we had to make
Borne new purchases to keep up
the trade." Yes, "keeping up the
trade", doing everything possible
to increase the sale of liquor, has
been the policy of the manage
ment ever since the dispensary
system was inaugurated. Now the
prohibitioniets want to Bee the
pendulum swing to the other ex
treme, i. e., they deeire to see
everything possible done to re
duce the sale of whiskey to a mini
- Claims Cotton Because He Sayed
It From Fire.
Governor Heyward has received
a long petition from Johnston
asking for the removal of Magis
trate James G. Mobley. It is
alleged in the petition that on the
3rd inst there was a disastrous
cotton fire at Johnston and that
most of the cotton.was destroyed.
It is stated that Mr. Mobley sav d
six bales of cotton and that he now
refuses to release that cotton,
claiming it as his property on ac
count of having saved it. The pe
tition alleges that Mr. Mobley had
no cotton in the ware house and
that he has no title to the proper
ty, and that this kind of a citizen
is not the proper style for magis
trate and that he should be re
Governor Hey ward has written
.Mr. Mobley to know what the con
tention is and whether he had any
cotton in the ware house or nit,
and what right be has to the cot

AN ENCOURAGING OUTLOOK.
Opening of Wards Excellent School
The Ward's Graded School will
open October 3rd, and the pros
pects are bright for the largest at
tendance in the history of thy
Behool. During the Bucimer im
provements have been made on the
building, more furniture and ap
paratus provided, and two large
rooms added making four large
class rooms and a spacious audi
torium that will seat 500 or more.
. With the-conveniences now ut
hand, five efficient teachers, we
feel that the school is equipped
for more exteneive and thorough
work than ever before. There will
be an educational rally, at the
opening, and a basket picnic also.
Addresses will be made by Hon.
J. W. Thurmond, W. L. Daniel,
Esq., Supt. B. P. Sample, Rev. S.
R. Bass, and A. B. Cargile, editor

We are glad to Bee all cf our
schools and colleges opening up
with large numbers of boys and
girls showing that our country is
getting in a better condition finan
cially. It shows too that our peo
ple are becoming more interested
iu education. The country schools
need the very best teachers. We
need teachers that are prepared for
their vjork ; teachers that expect
to make teaching a profession.
Our Behool houses in the county
are not at all comfortable. This
should be looked after by the
charts etc., and by all" means 'le?'
the schools house be painted. There
is no reason why we can't have
just as good a school iu the coun
try as we can have in the town.
We extend congratulations to
all who have been able to go to
college this session, and we ex
tend our sympathy to all who felt
like tbny wanted to go and were
not able. We hope there may yet
open a way for them to go before
it is too late.

Letter to Warren Paul.

Dear Sir: Here's something
every painter and builder ought
Mr. J. J. Hall, Sheffield, Pa,
painted two houses, 5 years ago,
lead-and-oil ; took 40 gallons. Last
year, he painted Devoe; bought
40 gallons; had 10 left.
He is one of thousands. The
knowledge is getting about pretty
generally, that Devoe goos further
than anything elso.
Have you found it out in your
How much further?
Suppose a job amounts tG 10,
000 square feet; how much leBS
Devoe could you buy?
Is it easy to paint? Dons it cost
any more or less to put-on by the
gallon than anything else? bow
If it costs no more to put-ou
Devoe by the gallon, it costs less
by the foot, you know; for the
gallon does more feet. How much
less, do you find it for wages?
Lasts, say, twice as long; that
is owner's gain ; but perhaps you
reckon it yours; Borne do. The
time, when that comes-in, is when
he gives-out the next job.
Who gets it?

wonderfully successful in promptly curing
lame back, kidney, bladder, uric acid trou

form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is not rec
ommended for everything but if you have kid
ney, liver or bladder trouble it will be found
just the remedy you need. It has been tested
in so many ways, in hospital work, in private
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur
chase relief and has proved so successful in
every case that a special arrangement has
been made by which all readers of this paper
who have not already tried it, may have a
sample bottle sent free by mail, also a boole
telling more about Swamp-Root and how to
find out if you have kidney or bladder trouble.
