Would that the cost of living would
drop two hundred points in a day like
cotton! Then we might occasionally
catch things down and "stock up" on

Let's hope the old adage, "a good

not apply to the cotton market, as

' Richland Sett? Good Example.
Richland county, in which is locat-,
ed the capital city and the seat of j
government, has made a tremendous
forward stride in providing for mod
ern public highways. By a vote of two
to one a $2,000,000 bond issue was
carried in an election in Richland j
county Tuesday. Thus Richland and
Columbia have set other portions of j
South Carolina a good example, one
worthy of emulation. The people of
Richland need and want goodjroads, |
and the result of yesterday's election
shows unmistakably that they are wil- |
ling to pay for them.
Badly Out of Adjustment.
A year ago the war held first place
as a favorite topic among speakers,
writers and conversationalists, but
now the high cost of living is accord
ed first place. Economic conditions
that make the cost of living so high
should receive due consideration to
the end that a normal status be re- i
stored, but that is not the only fea
ture of the war.'s aftermath that must
be readjusted. One does not have to
go to large cities to find that there
is another adjustment of conditions
that is needed. It appears now that a
premium has .been placed on brawn
and brains placed at a discount. In
not a few instances one finds unlet
tered laborers receiving more for
their work than does the man who
has spent years of toil, as well as a
considerable sum of money, in equip
ping himself for some particular field
of endeavor. The following taken
from a dispatch sent out from New
York illustrates effectively what we
have in mind:
"A large contracting firm telephon
ed to Major Warren Bigelow, direc
tor of the bureau, for a gang of la
borers to be paid $37.20 a week each.
"A minute later the president of a
college telephoned for a professor of
mathmatics at a salary of $1,000 a
year, which is $19.23 a week.
"Poor downtrodden' laborer, get
ting $17.97 a week more than the
man who devoted the best years of his
life to study and who probably for
mulated the philosophy by which the
"man who toils" considers himself the
'salt of the earth.' "
Why should men who handle a
trowel on a rough brick wall, not do- j
ing finished work, mark you, or men
who shovel coal into a locomotive, re
ceive much larger compensation than
theachers, school superintendents and
even some bank officials? Yet one
does not have to go far to find such
conditions existing. The war has
jostled things badly out of adjust
ment which in time must be read

A Great Remedy.

of Thedford's Black-Draught; in fact,
lt was one of our family medicines.
Also in my mother's home, when I
was a child. When any of us child
ren complained of headache, usually
caused by constipation, she gave us
a dose of Black-Draught, which would
rectify the trouble. Often in the
Bering, we would have malaria and
chills, or troubles of this kind, we
would take Black-Draught pretty reg
ular until the liver acted well, and
we would soon be tip and around
again. We would not be without it,
for lt certainly has saved us lots of
doctor bills. Just a dose of Black
Draught when not so well saves a
lot of days in bed."
