A wreck Saturday and a six hours
delay Sunday was the record of one

on the Blue Ridge Railway. The com

o'clock for Walhalla Saturday morning

' trestle when a "drawhead" palled out
of onp of the box cars. The trestle
waa cleared by eight crosstiea when
the passenger coach struck the "draw
head," which had fallen across the
track, jumped the track, yan e, short
distance ou the ties, creepe? over and
stood still. Eight, or ten 'passengers
were aboard, including* tbtte ladies.
None waa seriously hurt,. but several
were bruised, and the ladiu.were bad

from the buggy, but Miss Stevenson
was kicked lathe forehead. The horse
I was not shod and the blow glanced,
which, undoubtedly saved her life.
The skin was broken just above the
eyes three inches across and to the
skull and turned upward about an
' inch. The shock was terrible, but the
young lady did not lose consciousness.
Assistance was rendered immediately
I by others of the visiting party and she
Was taken back to the home of Clar
ence Dean. She was covered with
blood and her friends were excited and
anxious. Dr. Gray responded prompt
ly to a telephone call, stitched np the
wound, made the young lady comfort
able and allayed the fears of the many
friends by assuring them the woun-*.
was not serious. Miss Stevenson re- ,
turned home the next afternoon and is
getting along alright. Her companion
was considerably bruised, but not se
riously hurt. ._
A Serious Problem Confronts Next
I COLUMBIA, Sept, 5.-The biggist
proposition that the Legislature will
run up against next year will be that
of taxation and appropriation o. Those,
who are familiar with the financial
conditions' are already studying the
matter, and they see breakers ahead.
The. State has to borrow about
$800,000 this year. Other treasurers
bave had to supply deficits 'in the re
ceipts so as to tide the State over until
taxes came in, but this time it appears
that even whee taxes come in the de
ficit cannot be wiped ont. Thia is a
serious condition of affairs and the
prospect io that the next Legislature
will have to practice' the strictest econ
omy.. Appropriations during the past
year or two have been of an extraordi
nary character. For instance, there
was an appropriation of $50,000 to the
Charleston- Exposition. Then $100,000
was added - to the pensions, and os j
usual Winthrop came ip for its annual
demand for more, above its ordinary
' These are but few of the largest ap
propriations, and in them may be in
cluded lin al payment on the State
House. This and the Charleston Ex
position may. be eliminated from con
sideration in this year's estimates, but
still the Legislature will find itself
"hard up" to meet the ordinary expen
The only way out of the dilemma is
to reduce expenses or increase the levy.
It is feared that when it comes to a
ieduction that the State Colleges will
suffer because that seems, strange to
say, the place where they always want
to nse the maning knife. Clemson
Set an extraordinary amount of money
rom the privilege tax, and another
effort will- be made during the next
Legislature to divert^that sum into
the treasury and let Clemson got
appropriations according to its needs
just -like* other colleges do. This
wonld increase thu ordinary revenue
of the State considerably, but not
enough to make up the deficit.
The mere suggestion of raising the
tax levy wonld raise ouch a storm that
there is no man in the Legislature whp
would back up the move. So that may
be dismissed from, consideration, and
the whole thing revolved itself around
to the starting place and that ia that
economy will have to be practiced and
expenses cut down and ft is going to
take wise statesmanship to doit and
do injustice to none,

A DEERING MOWER and RAKE.
THE many advantages the Deering Mower has enables the operator to
work it with much more ease than any other machine, and no time lost in go
ing around stumps and tree*. This Machine is so constructed that the driver
is at no trouble in lowering and raising the cutter bar in passing stumps and
trees. With no ".Tc rt scarcely he brings the cutter bar to an upright position
without stopping the Machine. There are many other advantages the Deer
; ing Ideal Mower has that we will show you when you want a Mower. The
Pitman Rod of this Mower has only two pieces, while all other Machines
have from ten to twenty-five pieces to wear out and be replaced.
The Mower ia not all in looking up an outfit. It is essential to have a
good Rake, and the Deering Rake is the simplest Rake on the market. A
comparison of our Rake with other makes will convince any farmer that it is
the Rake he nee is. The devices for dumping are so constructed that a child
can operate it without any assistance. If you are iu need of an outfit let us
show, you our Mower and Rake and be convinced.
Now is the timp to sow your stubble land in Peas and harrow them in
