The'recent disturbance in Atlan
% ta led to the closing of alt the sa
loons in the city for a period of
five da} s. If it is a good thing to
close all barrooms for a period of
five days, would it not be a better
thing to close them for three hun
dred and sixty five days?
Bear in mind the election whech
is to be held on Saturday next.
Because only ote office is to be
filled many through indifference
will probably absent themselves
; from the polls. This should not be
so. Whenever the Democratic Ex
ecutive Committee orders an elec
tion it is the duty of every citi
zen to vote. 9

A year ago "The Clansman"

money for Tom Dixon. But this
BeaeotQ an ill wind has so troubled
the waters that its sailing is any
thing but smooth.. Some cities
have shut it out by ordinances)
others have cancelled engage
ment? because of the tense racial
conditions. Our own Carolina
capital, is considering the wiBdom
of closing its doors to Tom Dixon
~~~ and his incendiary production.)
The play will probably never make
another successful Eiouthern tour.
The . debt-making' season has j
pased and the debt-paying sea- j
son-the time when the proceeds j
of the year's work are converted
: into hard cash-is here. As the
, year draws to a close it behooves
every man to liquidate all indebt
edness as far as possible. Notice!
whenever and wherever' you will,
and you will find that the success

every section, of tjhe. Tunion, irre?
speotive of. geographical location,
is con fronted,' with one phase or
another, cf this nevei-to-be-solved
problem. The indignation meet
ings of the North no longer haye
full houses as of yore. A few nights
ago one was held by the colored
people in Boston to discuss the
Atlanta incident bot the white
, , people were conspicuous for their |
" absence, which fact waB comment
ed upon by the speakers. Some of
the ??eat northern dwi lie called
lip?n their readers to withhold
entioism, stating thati the race
troubles of A tl an ta. did not equal
in any particular, those of. Spring
&4tttove The ?aguto?.
Every community- should ana
lyze and study* the conditions
that made possible the race fric
tion of Atlanta, and then set about
to change local conditions if they j
. seem liable to result in an un
fortunate experience such as At
lanta has passed through. It is im
portant that all idlers and loafers
should be put to work, but it is
vastly more important that all
persons should be driven out who
are guilty of making incendiary
statements to. the negroes for the
purpose of inflaming their minds.
In this particular, Abbeville and
Augusta have recently set worthy
examples to other communities. |
Both of these cities have made
negro leaders who were poisoning j
the minds of their race depart for j
regions where their presenoe would
be less objectionable. Edgefield,
nor any other town, should toler
ate such characters who are sow
ing seeds'.-of race prejudice aud
r antagonism. The trite old saying
; "an ounce of prevention is wortb
a pound of core,'* is peculiarly
apropos in this connection.
Opeaija^>-6f?he Session 1808 07.
" The sixteenth yea?fa work of the
Routh Carolina Co-Educational
Institute has begun. On Thursday
morning[the opening exercises took
place in the College Auditorium.
All of the pastors of the town- ex
cept Mr. Burgess, who was in at
tendance on the Presbytery, occu
pied seats on the rostrum, togeth
er with a number of the trustees
and president F. N. K. Bailey.
Rev. Marvin Auld of the Metho
dist church, was first introduced.
His-advice to parents was practi
cal and of the very best, inter
spersed with witticisms which
made'bis remarks the more effect
ive. Rev. Royal Shannoubouse of.
the Episcopal church took as his
especial theme, that of work in its
broad sense. Pres. Bailey said in
introducing him that he had al
ways been a popular speaker with
tt?e students, and that many of t he
old students were delighted to see
him again on this the opeuiug of
Dr. C. E. Burts followed as a
representative of the Baptist
church, and made an address, a
medley of the grave and gay, wel
coming the new students and the
old, congratulating the pastors,
the faculty of the college and the
town of Edgefield, on their res
pective blessings conneoted with
the return'of the college boys aod
Rev. P. P. Blalock, who haB al
ways been intimately associated
with the school since its establish
ment in Edgefield, although the
fourth speaker.^ept the close at
tention of the audience through a
very interesting talk full of wise
counsels to parents, and students.
Prepideut Bailey came last. Any
commeut is superpone. He al
ways brings good cheer to the pa
trons of the school, and the stu
dent body. In him are entered
the educational hopes of the young
men and women and children of
Edgefiold. With twenty one years
of experience in teaohing. he is a
wise and eafe counsellor and guide.
There was only one thing in his
address that thu audience' did not
enjoy, aud that was b-B announce
ment in regard to Prof Entzmiuger
who will be away fora 3ear
and during that time will take a
?pee i al course in some univ irtity
Edgefield will miss Prof. Entz
minger beyond the pow??r of words
to express, but we will corr.-'
fort ourselves with the assurance
that he will soon return, if it were
possible, more efficient and better
equipped than ever for his chosen

deaths are caused by

failure or apoplexy

of kidney disease. - If
kidney trouble is al
lowed to advance the
~ blood will attack th*
vital organs or the
kidneys themselves break down and waste

Bladder troubles most always result from

Obtained quickest by a proper treatment of
the kidneys, if you are feeling. badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's

unpleasant necessity of being compelled to

extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and sold
