What nave you done with these dollars? Have
you spent them as fast as you earned them? If you
nave, you are poor indeed; but if you have spent only
a part of the dollars and kept some of them, you have
in these dollars stored up energy and strength to

How much better still is your position if you have

NEW FEDERAL COURT RULING.
Will Not Adjourn-Only a Recess Or
Greenville, Oct. 19.-One of the
fen tu rcs of the session of the Fede
ral Court yesterday was a ruling
made hy Judge Rose to the effect that
he will not adjourn the present term
of court, but will recess it until the
next term meets. The purpose of
this ruling leaving the court iii ses
sion is to guard against any of tho
several parties convicted at this
term-but who will not begin serv
ing their sentences until later-dak
ing advantage of the mercy of. tho
court by failing to put in their ap
pearance when tho day arrives for
them to go to prison. Should any
one who has been shown this mealy
fail to report for jail service on tie
day appointed ho will bo arresto 1
and the sentence already passe.!
upon him Increased to any extent tho
court sees fit.
As ls generally known, tho Fede
ral Judges sitting In court at Green
ville have frequently shown great
mercy to men convicted of offenses
against tho government. For in
stance, if a man ls convicted at the
spring term of the court and given
a jail sentence the judge will allow
that man to go and finish his crop
if ho has one-and begin serving
bis sentence after the crops have
been "laid by." If a man is convict
ed at the fall term of the court tho
judge sometimes allows that man to
go and gather lils crops, and thou
servo tho sentence lu the winter
months, when there is no work to
be done on the farm.

attorney rang vigorously. Upon an
swering the telephone the lawyer was

voice of the old mountaineer.
Durham steadfastly refused to tell
the attorney "who 'e he was at," nor
would he give any satisfactory expla
nation of why ho left the Federal
Court room so unceremoniously. All
the lawyer could get out of Durham
was that he wont away to "tend to
bigness." Durham dropped the at
torney a suggestion, however., and
that was that If the attorney wished
to communicate with him he could
do it through his brother. With that
Durham hung up the receiver.
The attorney scratched his head
for a moment In thought. Then he
took down the receiver mid called
"long distance." Inquiring of tho
young lady whore the call was made
from, the attorney was told that lt
came from Spartanburg. And that
