Will Select Best; Men For
Washington, May 18.-Only 'good
'O? the service' will be considered in
selecting the men from among the
?hree highest for certification to the
president -for appointment as post
master, Pastmaster General Hays de
clared today in discussing the recent
?executive order. of President Hard
ing on the matter. Congressmen and
senators will naturally be heard by
the departments as to the qualifica
tions of applicants, Mr. Hays said,
adding that this meant democrats as
.well as republicans.
? Selections made by the civil ser
vice commissioner under President
Wilson but not .confirmed by the
.senate will be ignored and new ex
aminations held for such vacancies,
the postmaster general asserted.
There are about 5,000 vacancies and
the post office department is now
making a list by states to certify to
the civil service commission.
Concerning Conditions of Jails
- 7,356 commitments were made to
the county jails of ,South Carolina
from June 30, 1919 ,to June 30,
1920, according to reports sent by
all the sheriffs of the state to the
Board; of Public Welfare. This is
one commitment for every 228 per
sons in the state as given by the cen
sus of 1920. Even though one per
son may be committed more than
:once for the same offense, these re
ports show the amount of serious de
linquency in the state.
"The cost of crime is one of the
.most tremendous drains upon the re
sources of our country, says Thomas
Mott Osborne, the noted authority
?upon prisons and prison manage
ment. "No one has yet been able to
give authoritatively the total expense
to our taxpayers of the jails, prisons,
courts, reformatories, and law en
forcement officers, but all estimates
indicate that it requires a large pro
portion vof public expenditure."
As long as they are over seven
thousand commitments to the county
jails of the state, the condition of
these jails should be of grave con
cern to the humane, public spirited
citizens of South Carolina. A meet
ing of persons interested in this and
other social problems is to be held
at Greenwood on June 1. The meet
ings wlil be open to the public and
the citizens of Abbeville, Greenwood,
Newberry, McCormick and Edgefield
counties are especially urged to be

SPEAK OUT FOR DISARMAMENT
Word has quietly come from va
rious dependable sources in Washing
ton that we are to blame for the pas
sage in the House of that appalling
$396,000,000 Appropriation Bill;
that Floor Leader Mondell, support
ing the President's position that peace
must come before disarmament, could
not have held the House in line if
we had done our part. If, in short,
we had showered letters and tele
grams on our congressmen telling
them that as women and as citizens
we are not willing to wait.
At the Cleveland Convention the
League of Women Voters passed a
resolution urging that the United?
ment toward international disarma
ment. Its delegation presented the
resolution at Washington But that is
not enough. There rests on the league
membership a solemn obligation to
make good *on that resolution ; to let
Congress know in words how strong
ly it feels about this first step toward
For a while there are different'
shades of opinion about disarmament,
a first step is all that most of the
women's organizations ask; they
want agreement between the United
States, Japan and Great Britain not
to build more ships-that first of all.
There is no real reason to believe the
three powers are not ready: Great
Britain would welcome the financial
relief; Japan says, through her Min
ister .of the Navy, that she is willing
to reduce ship-building. Why not,
We can make it so if we will. Let
the senate know beyond the shadow
of a doubt our will toward disarma
TOBACCO SMOKE NOT A DIS
The apologists for tobacco have
long maintained that tobacco smoke
is a valuable antiseptic and preser
vative; that by destroying germs it
protects the smoker against sore
;hro?t and preseoves the teeth. Ac
:ording to the London Lancet (Oct. i
JO, 1920), these claims have been
;horoughly disproved by the learned
Professor Puntoni, of the University
)f Rome, who undertook a series of
ixperiments for the purpose of de- .
;ermining the real effect of tobacco
?moke as a disinfectant of the mouth. '
3e found, first of all that while to
>acco smoke seeemd to exercise some ]
lecided disinfectant properties when
ipplied to bacteria in a glass flask,
;he same results were not produced
n the mouth of the smoker. The best
hat could be said for tobacco as a
lisinfectant was that when used in 3
rery large quantities some very fee- ]
jlemicro-organisms, those with least <
.esistance, might be hindered from j
levelopment; but such organisms as (
;he typhoid bacillus and other vigor- <
)us bacteria were found to be unaf
fected by the tobacco smoke. It was (
ilso found th-* the slight disinfecting ,
jroperties of tobacco smoke were not ^
lue to nicotine or even to the so-call- ,
;d tar products, but to formaldehyde (
md pyrrol. (
The proprietors of the bus lines of
Mew York City have shown just con- <
.ideratioon for the sensibilities of <
;he great non-smoking public who \
still outnumber the smokers, by es- ,
;ablishing a rule that smokers who
ride on top pf the buses must occupy ,
;he back seats. 1
The average smoker seems to en- 1
joy nothing better than to find a
areezy place where he can start a i
long line of smudge and insult the i
nostrils of a hundred or more people
by compelling them to inhale his :
stale and poison-laden breath. If the ?
non-smokers of the country, includ- :
ing the. women, would abandon their
amiable tolerance of the disgusting
smoke habit and make an organized
protest against patrons of the weed
they could be made to restrict their
indulgence to conditions and places
which would enable them to" enjoy
a monopoly of the narcotic poisoning,
thus relieving others of the neces
sity of participating in their degrad
ing practice. The popular mind is not
quite ready for such a movement,
but the time will certainly come
when an enlightened public will de
mand of the smoker that he exercise
due regard for the feelings of those
who prefer pure air to a poison laden
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Every family should keep this prep
ration at hand ready for instant use
when needed. Severe attacks of colic
and cholera morbus often prove fatal
before medicine can be procuder or
a physician summoned.. The uniform
success that has attended the use of
this remedy and the prompt cures
which it has effected have made it a
staple article of trade.
