P. DeLaughter. I will, if elected,
support the bill now pending in the

Augusta Beneficed by Close of
Blease Administration. /
One result, of the downfall of
Bleaseism came on Saturday.
Heretofore, Augusta bad men
skipped over to Hamburg or North
Augusta, and from the Carolina
side gave Augusta officers the "mer
ry ba! ha!" Governor Cole L. pro
tected them.
Saturday two of them (they had
escaped from the city stockade and
having Iv en in prison, had not seen
the newspapers and didn't know
that Colonel Cole, the merry old
soul, had quit) skipped .over to
"North Augusta.
Chief Elliott telephoned magis
trate Hahn. The Carolina pffii&V
Husbed the esoapes and co m pei Ted
them to hot-foot it across the Nottfr
Augusta bridge-and, as arranged,
'-into the aims of two Augusta po
licemen. They are again "?doing
time."
Except during the Blease regime,
-Carolina has always co-operated
with Augusta..in these mattere, ;
TEere wasite time when we may
.have gone too far. But our officers
never suffered. For instance when
?Chief of Police Hood hired an en
gine and, preceediug down the Port
Royal road (the Charleston & West
ern Carolina now), brought back
two men who had robbed the Na
tional Bank of Augusta of a roll.
Oh, yes, the bank robbers' law
yers were there, and no Georgia
officer could take a man from Caro
lina withont extradition papers, but
-Chief Hood was a man of action.
He seized the robbers, flung them
on the engine and told the engineer
to "throw her wide open" back to
Augusta.
Warrants charging Chief Hood
with kidnapping were sworn out,
but that was the last of that feature
of it.
South Carolina does not want to
harbor Augusta bad men and pro
tect them after their wrong doing.

HEALTH HINTS.
What Anger Costs.
Do you know what it costs yo
to become angry? Every time
man gets an2ry he shortens his lif
so roany minutes or da.yf, perhaji
even years. A great deal depend
on the intensity of his anger. Ev
ery time we become angry our v
tality shrinks so much in proporlio:
for every outburst.- After even th
most artfully suppressed signs o
bad temper our vitality become
smaller and smaller, until f nail,
nothing is left. The moral deduce
from the advancement of this late*
theory in medicine is, of course
that we should never allow oui
selves to become angry if we valu
our health and life.
Anger is a certain kind of cerebra
(brain) excitement. The hypei
stenic (very strong) subject is a
way8 on its verge, while the net
rasthenic (nervously debilitated) b(
comes infuriated only by a sudde
bound of reaction excited fror
without. But at the moment whe
they are let loose the two are al i kt
save that the strongman is a blind?
brute; while the weak man is som*
what of an actor, and seems-to ail
at effect.
All emotions are due to disorder
fat the circulation of the blood, an
$ngg?,. in particular, to an intent
?il?Sron of the small arteries of th
brain. Redness and swelling of th
face are constant signs of anger, an
anger is a state of hypernerv'atioii
The muscular fibers surroundin
the arteries in which the blood cu
ciliates, and which form a continu
bus sheath for them, are tightene
in pro portion to our angerVTh
caliber of the arterial tube fdimii
i s h. ed and then, the blood bi i tig ut
der a high pressure, the watery pai
is driven back into the surroundin
tissues and the red globules, dilute
in a less quantity of liquid, appea
far more numerous in tbe field c
the microscope. The concentrado
of. the Jbhjod and rise in arterh
pressure I consider to be almost a
ways present in caso of anger,
have found them whenever I hav
been able lo examine a patient.
Let us form a clear idea of a
that there is in a fit of anger-vai
expenditure of effort, aimless niovt
me..ts, energy spent in biting th
fists, stamping on the ground, kiel
ing against doors, or tearing up
book. All tbiet clearly indicates
mental condition of no high o rd el
At every stajre we recognize ravi
c early that the proi.lera of auger ?
a problem cf cerebral mechanics.
In a condition of nervuus exoil?
raent all our energies are at a big
aitch. The heart sends to eve*
part of the body concentrated bloui
extraordinary rich in globules, whic
utilizes itself instantaneously in th
tissues; our organic combustiu
takes place with almost doubled it
tensity, our sensibility is consider:
bly excited. We are too muc
alive.
Variations of temper are varij
lions of energy, of muscular tonici
One is sad or timid because one 1
too weak; angry because one is to
strong. Oscillations of the min
are caused by the excitement pre
d ticed by the contact of our nervi
of sensibility. There is a short ci:
(?nit in our nerves, followed by
rad ey increased muscular energ;

]Su\v, the immense work perforn
ed by the brain during the.angt
crisis is so much work lost, wort
than lost, harmful; apart from trj
evil it may do to its object, wh
may be killed by it, it is harmful t
the person who gets into the rag
We are degraded by anger; not on I
does it humiliate us in ihe eyes 1
others, but it leaves us dejected au
exhausted.-Prof. John Lange.

Question.
Church Members:-Do you not
think that when your paRtor takes
several clays out of a week to prepare
a sermon to preach on 8unda,\ for
your soul's edification, that it is as
little as you can do, out of regard to
his feelings, to say nothing abjut
vour religious duty, to be present?
Do you think that you could con
scientiously ^neel down reverently
on Sunday morning and offer a
prayer like thin: "Lord, it is rain
ing to-day, and I beg to be excused
from attending services. It is true
I do not allow rain to keep me from
business or pleasure, but I pray thee
to excuse me this rainy day?" If
you can do this, you are excused.
No, it is a deep-seated trouble, and
there is no cure for it bul. SPIRIT'
