The "scratching" of unworthy
candidates will give many a voter a
?thrill of satisfaction.

The last public word has been spo
ien by Edgefield candidates. The
voters will make the next move.
In a few days all that will be left
of the campaign will be the "paign"
caused by the scratching of voters.

Two Branches of Government.
In the election next Tuesday men
to serve in two branches of the
state government will be selected. If
good men are chosen, the state will
steadily move forward but if bad,
unworthy men are selected, the
state's progress will be impeded.
First, a governor or chief execu
tive officer will be chosen. If a for
ward looking man, a man with
breadth of vision and high ideals is
chosen the people will have no cause
for regret. On the contrary, if a man
who is regarded as a friend of the
lawless and criminal element of our
citizenship is chosen a disrespect and
disregard for law will be engender- j
ed, which will make very much worse
an already bad situation. We have
not yet recovered from the reaction
following the war and the restora-^j
tion of a normal status will be great
ly hindered if a man of low stand
ards and low ideals is selected for
this high office.
Second, a majority of the mem
bers of the general assembly, the law
making branch of the state, will be
chosen. We need now, more than for
a long time, men of a high type to
serve in this capacity. While we must
economize in public affairs, yet we
should not adopt a policy of false e
conomy. We need men of character,
men of clear vision, men of ability,
and sober minded (and also sober)
bodied) men. No where is a drinking
man more of a nuisance or misfit
than in the legislative halls. He not
only makes a disgraceful spectacle
of himself and hinders legislation
but he reflects upon his county and
constituency. Yes, more than ever
we need men in the legislature who
are sane, sober and altogether de

Booker Washington's Jokes.
The editor of this column once
heard Booker T. Washington in an
address before the National Sunday
School Convention, meeting in Louis
ville, Ky. He recalls two good stories
told on the occasion by this greatest
of Negro speakers.
He began by saynig that he had
often spoken in Louisville and might
now repeat things he had said be
fore. He might find himself in the
fix illustrated by the incident when
ie was called to. help to settle a dis
pute in a Negro church near Tuske
gee. He found the dispute was over
"paying the preacher." He at once
undertook to explain . the duty of
paying the preacher, and every few
moments a deacon on the front
bench interrupted with the words,
"Ain't gwine pay him no more dis
year." at last Washington turned to
him and asked, "Why don't you pay
him any more this year?" The reply
came promptly, "Cause we done paid
him for dem same sermons last
year." It is altogether likely that
white congregations pay for the
same sermons more than once.
Booker Washington also told his
audience that on his way to Louis
ville he met a white man on the train
who was a great friend, and that
when he found that he was to speak
to a great national convention he
said to him, "Now Washington, I
want you in your speech to tell those
Northern people that the South was
not responsible for African sjavery,
that the North brought the slaves
from Africa and sold them to the
Southeners." "Now," said Washing
ton, "my attitude toward that ques
tion is like Uncle Mose and his shoat.
Uncle Mose had a shoat and one
morning a white man came by and
bought it for $3.50. The shoat, turn
ed loose in the yard of the new own
er, soon got out and went back to
Uncle Mose. That afternoon another
man, neighbor to the first, came
along and seeing the shoat, made a
trade with Uncle Mose and gave him
$3.50 for the pig. Late that evening
the first man seeing the shoat in his
neighbor's yard went over and claim
ed it. There was a dispute, each
claiming that he had bought the hog
and paid $3.50 for it. So they decid
ed to referthe matter to Uncle Mose.
When they reached the Negro's cab
in the first man said, "Uncle Mose,
didn't I buy that shoat from you this
morning and give you $3.50 for it?"
"Yes, boss, you show did." The sec
ond man said, "But Uncle Mose,
didn't I buy that shoat from you this
afternoon and give you $3.50 for
it?" "Yes, boss, you show did." Said
the first man, "Now tell us then
whose shoat it is." Uncle Mose hesi
tated, loked embarrassed, and then
with a smile of humor said, "Now
look here, white folks, can't you two
got off to your selfs and settle dat
question?" Booker Washington then
said to his audience that the ques
tion of responsibility for Negro sla
very didn't interest him, and he was
perfectly willing for the white folks
to get off to themselves and settle
it.-Dr. Dill in Baptist Courier.

"Thy Will Be Done"
There are shadows dark that shut
out the light
That shines in the life of all,
There are sorrows deep sorrows that
come with the night,
And hang o'er us like a pall,
But hope whispers sweetly and faith
holds its sway,
Tho' the heart be stricken and sore,
As we remember the promise
"though rough be the way
I'm with you now and evermore."
And promise after promise comes
afresh to our minds
As a smile chases sorrow away,
And through our tears we see the
rainbow as it winds
Across the clouds, with colors so gay
And as we quicken anew for our
mission and task,
A new light dawns over the hills,
For just now we recall, that we
can only ask
He gives and takes as He wills.
Dedicated to my bereaved Friends.

The Pick of The Lot.
For some reason or other it seems
to be permitted to newspapers in
South Carolina to advocate or oppose
candidates for governor, but if the
newspapers go below or beyond that
office a great breach of propriety
is committed and the newspaper is
regarded as a great offender-by
the other candidates affected.
This newspaper does not know
whether it is called upon just at this
time to take advantage of even what
is permitted it to say, but will say it
anyhow. And it is this, that in its
opinion McLeod is the pick of tho
lot for governor.-Greenwood Index
