Nepotism-another new disease;
one that afflicts colleges and which
the legislature alone can cure.
Judging /from the great number
of new measures proposed, the legis

At any rate, if the cost of living
gets too high, we can all go out on
a farm and snap our fingers at the
cost of living.-Augusta Herald.
How can ihat be, when we saw
a farmer hauling meal, flour, lard,
bacon and turnips from town a few
days ago. All farmers can't "snap
their fingers," for they do not all
"iive at home."
Hon. Seaborn Wright Coming.
It gives The Ad vertiser peculiar
pleasure to announce that through
the efforts of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union, the Hon.
Seaborn Wright, of Georgia, has
been engaged to deliver a lecture in
the Edgefield opera house on Tues
day night, February the 8th. This
gifted lawyer and silver tongued
orator is now one of the foremost
lecturers upon the American plat
forms. He has' a number of engage
ments in Missouri during February,
and about March 1st will go north
to fill one .continuous round of en
gagements till June 1st. A faller an

We're Watching Charleston.
. In a short editorial last week Thc
Advertiser called upon Charlesto
n ians to arouse from their lethargy
and improve the opportunities that
. lie at their door, and the News and
Courier rushed to their defence in
an editorial entitled, "Watch Char
leston Grow." That's what we have
been doing, but it's like waiting for
Cook's proofs or the coming of Hal
ley's comet. Our watching seems al
most in vain, which is to say Char
leston's growth has not been com
mensurate with her opportunities.
Let it be understood that the wri
ter is no enemy, of Charleston; not
one who finds delight in holding
her shortcomings up to public gaze.
In truth, it was within her bor
ders-to be more specific, within
The Citadel walls-that we spent
-several of the happiest and most
profitable years of our life. And
while we may be charged with pr?
pnmptiou for criticising or making
suggestions at long range, we have
had ample opportunity of observing
Charleston at close range.
In the offending editorial, The
Advertiser did not criticise Char
leston for desiring the government
steamships to stop there while en
route from New York to Colon. On
the contrary, we said the request of
Senator Tillman was reasonable,
timely and in order. The Adverti
ser did say, however, and is still of
the opinion that if Charleston
'would develop her resources and
: im prove her opportunities, she
would "become a city of such impor
tance and a commercial factor so
potent that such appeal*, either to
President Taft or individual steam
ship owners, would be unnecessary.
Her wharves would be teeming
with vessels flying almost every
flag. . .
With characteristic modesty the
ews and. Courier recounts the fol
lowing. achievements of Charles
Ion: "Sixteen of the largest lumber
ing plants in the south; two new
lines of railroad coming into this
port; two new lines of steamships
: established within the last th ret
years; the largest sugar distributing
depot, in the sooth; more than 100
