Letter to Giles Butter.
Edgefield, S. a
Dear Sir : You buy your horse
shoe's and nails; your grandfather,
if he waH a blacksmith, made 'em.
You can't afford to hammer them
out by hand, when you can buy
as good, or better perhaps, ready
made to your hand, for a little
more than the cost of the iron.
What do you think of a painter )
who goes on buying his linseed oil
and white lead, and mixing, and
tinting by hand, and charging his
time for work, that is far better
done than he can do it, done by
machinery, done as your horse
shoes and nails are made.
Mistake isn't it.
He is wasting his chance in the
world. There is no belter stuff to
do busiuess with than good horse
shoes aud paint: and no b-Uar.
work than putting them on. Good
horseshoes well put on: It's the
putting 'i'm on that makes you a
blacksmith: no matler who mases

Most Brilliant in The History oil
The S. C. C. I.
The graduating exercises tflj
night in the college auditoriufl
will be a brilHaut climax to tj
most interesting and succeseffij
commencement since the estaffl
lisbment of the South CaroliB
Cp-Educatioual Institute. ThH
means much, for as the eight coifl
mencements have como a Dd gol
each has been so enjoyable andi
tull of good things that we cow
not have hoped for better.
Through all these years we haH8
been eye-witnesBes to the rema?
able development which has tal?
place in the intellectual life!
Edgefield, nuder the influence!
this institution. Not mentioufi
at all the financia] advantafl
which have ueceisarily accrvH
from the large uumber"of persaH
added to our ]iopulation bothH
and out of the college buildiM
and the superior quality of thffl
uew citizens, there is aLot^?
phase of the situation which is
especially striking, to those inter
ested in.the uplift of the intelli
gence of the community. Every
one knows that intelligence bearf
wealth iu its grasp, aud that ignor
ance aod poverty are twin sisters,
SQ that the financial aud educa
tional interests of the community
react materially upon each otbe-,
but some of the striking results
bf the refining . influence of the
college is evident wheu it is learn
ed that where Edgefield was the
proud possession of one musician
tweuty yoars ago, or three, ten
years ago, there arc more thau caD
easily be numbered uow. It is the
exception when a young womau
"ras nojkuowledge of music. Where
there was one artist the increase
bas been relatively, as great. For
merly there were few sous aud
daughters, perhaps uot a half
dozen iu a generation, who on ac
count of special gifts and by
means of an extended stay at
schools in o'ber sections, became
intellectual lights iii this commu
nity. It is not sot >day without
leaving the native Foil of Edge
field our girls aiul boys can git all
this and' more. This bas beconv
manifest in a decided elevation in
the average of intelligence and
refiuemeDt. The past eight years
have beeu those of seed sowing,
and already there is a rich harvest
but what will the end be? Surely
the returns, the blessings will be
more than we will have room
enough to receive.

heroism iu the audience. It won.
fruit iu the afternoon at the stu

number of students made earnest
talks aud siguified their inteution

Sciatica Cured After Twenty Years
For more than twenty year?.
Mr. J. B. Massey, of 3322 Clinton
St, Minneapolis, Minn., was tor
tured by sciatica. The pain and
suffering which he endured during
this time is beyond comprehen
sion. Nothing gave him any per
manent relief until he used Cham
berlain's Pain Bai n. Ono applica
tion of that liniment n lieved the
pain and made sleep and rest pos
sible, and less than one bottle
has tff cted a permanent cure. If
troubled with sciatioa or rheuma
tism why not try a 25-cent buttle
of Pain Balm aud see for your
self how quickly it relieves the
pain. For sale by G. L. Penn &

Our TRIUMPH GEAR speaks
for itself. It hus more desirable
features tjiao any other side
spring gear. It ie so constructed
that the center or brace springs
serve a double purpose, i. e., both
a brace and equalizer, consequent
ly you get less side motion than
on any other side spring gear.
Put your whole weight on 'one
step off the TRIUMPH, and
watch the result, then go through
the same operation on any other
side spring gear vehicle and you
will find the TRIUMPH goes down
level, while the others cant to one
side. It is justly entitled to its
name, the TRIUMPH.
