Congressmen Joe Johnson and
Lever, of this State, have been select
ed by the managers of the National
Democratic campaign to stump In
diana and other Northwestern States
for the Democracy. They are effec
tive speakers and stand well in the
councils of the party.
The State farms will gather this
fall about 20,000 bushels of corn.
This statement leads the Newberry
Observer to suggest that as the State
is heels over head in the liquor busi
ness, why not pay thc big distillery
in Columbia to make it up into corn
liquor to sell to our thirsty citizen??
Thc Southern Railway management
is certainly doing a great and impor
tant work in inducing the honic-scck
er to settle along its lines. This road
is a very effective factor in the devel
opment of our beautiful Southland,
which is so rioh in natural resources,
and the thrift and industry seen along
its lines is an evidence that good re
sults have followed its efforts in this
If there should be a vacancy-on the
Supreme Court Bench of this State on
account of the bad health of Chief
Justice Mciver, Anderson has a gen
tleman who is eminently qualified to
fill the position. We refer to our
popular townsman, James L. Tribblc,
Esq., who is regarded as one of the
ablest and most studious lawyers in
the State. His many friends would
be more than pleased to Bee him oc
cupying a position on the Supremo
Tho idea enforced by tho New York
Tribune that "thc leaders in the south
must be left to solve the problem (of
education) in their own way," and
that they "best understand tho con
ditions," is encouraging in many moro
ways than one. It indicates that
there has at length grown up between
thc north and south tho spirit of re
ciprocal confidence that many of us
have been praying for during more
than thirty years. Who knows but
that the little red school-house may
after all bo thc means of reuniting all
sections of the Union as they have
never beforo been joined together?
In the matter of child labor in tho
cotton mills there has been some talk,
very strong and very sharp pointed,
about taking children from the con
trol of their parents and its bad effect
on the community. We recognize the
force of the argument, but there is an
other side to it also, which applies
with unfortunate generality to all
classes, and that is the deplorable faot
that among the great American mass
es as well as the classeB, parents are
all too ready to drop the responsibility
and trouble of raising their children,
to say nothing of controlling them.
They are delighted to put the duty on
a Behool teacher or a neighbor or even
a corporation -ike the cotton mill.
The result is worth studying. In
some cases we doubt not the corpora
tion ie tho better parent.
What can the schools of thc Stato
do towards inculcating a higher sense
of the sacredness of human life? Thc
terrible recklessness in the use of
fire-arms is becoming a serious menace
to our civilization. It is time for
teachers and all good citizens to raise
their voices against this fearful vio
lation, of law.. ;oth human and Divine.
Human life shold be regarded as the
holiest trust that society has in its
charge. How far ia tho toy pistol re
sponsible for the pistol carrying mania,
and the consequent disregard of life?
Thc young lad is given a toy pistol,
ho learns to handle it, and to. soup
his "paper cartridge." But soon ho
tires of the toy, and wants to own a
"sure enough gun" that will kill
something. Teachers and parents arc
familiar with this process of evolu
tion. Let tho toy pistol be banished
from tue school and from the home,
if you would keep from developing in
that boy the murderous instincts of
the savage. Teach the child tho sa
creuness of human life,-yes, all life.

A VISIT TO GREENWOOD.
Accompanied by M?BS Ida Simpson,
ono of Piedmont's earnest church and
social workers, your correspondent hud
enjoyed the rare favor of a visit to
Greenwood during the 8th and 0th
inst., attendant upon tho Woman's
Foreign Missionary Union of tho South
We cannot forget and shall always
magnify in our appreciation the kind
ness shown, and the official competen
cy manifested by tho Greenwood ladies
of the organization. Charity is a de
lightful trait when so surrounded by
these refined graces, und who would
not be a missionary or delegate? Who 7
Your correspondent was apportioned
to Mrs. Hird, on Church street, whose
home and talents and carriage were at
our disposal for the good of our per
sonal gratification and the adornment
of Christianity. Greenwood's magnifi
cent edifice-tho new Presbyterian
Chinch, costing ?17,(H)0-was occupied
by an intellectual body of women scarce
ever surpassed there in zeal by any or
ganization of Christian workers. Two
inimitable addresses-one by ench-were
delivered by Kev. .J. Lowry Wilson, I).
D., and Rev. J. Piiirman Preston, of
Greenville. Comment on these ad
dresses in point of exclusive ability
and convincing argument would be
almost detrimental as entirely unwor

?presid? nt. of the Union, presided, and
beside Mrs. Krnckett in official capaci
ty another indispensable, Miss Annie
Kell Towers, of Anderson, Secretary
and Treasurer of local Presbyterian
Societies ot the Union, were represent
ed, with a kindly influx of Methodist
and Baptist visitors. Wo were pleased
to hear from Mrs. Auld, of Greenwood,
that the Methodist organization within
tho Inst twenty-four years had con
tributed to foreign missions alone
almost one million and a huU dollars.

missionary, apologized for by Little

"Oppoaition to Missionary Union,"
Anderson Centrnl Church, uniquely re
sponded to by Mrs. J. C. Harris, who
reported: "Ha ha! Why, we never
heard of such a thing, wo really could
not think of it; and we love mission
work so well that not ono of us could
be found who wns willing to write n
?aper on 'Opposition to Missionary
Jnion.'" Mrs. Harris' apology was

and instructivo paper on the subject,

caught the natue.
Nnnsing, a cot nt Elizabeth Blake
Hospital in China, suggested a few ap
propriate names, "Palmetto" among
them, to which tho writer facetiously,
in honor ot' modest Piedmont, object
ed, us being a brand of dispensary cal
culated to nil all the hospitals and jails
in foreign and home fields with incura
bles. Tho president and delegates,
however, were assured that the States'
"coat of arms" were no longer blown
upon wiu>key bottles, and that the
nourishing emblem was all right as a
guarantee of the wholesome morals of
the State, whereupon, with benign
gratitude, we relinquished and with
tho majority rallied around "Palmet
to."' The hospital is a bequest of John
Paney Blake, deceased, or Greenwood,
named in honor of his wife, Elizabeth.
This estimable lady was herself present
nt tho Union, the recipient of many re
lined compliments. The cot is sup
ported by the .Mission Union of the
South Carolina Presbytery. An inter
esting letter from Elizabeth Blake
Hospital, by missionary Anna B. Wil
kinson, was read by Airs. K. I'. Blake.
At close of meeting decision was re
quired for location of next annual
meeting. Anderson, through her able
delegates, came almost securing the
prize, but Miss Ida Simpson tendered
invitation from Piedmont; whereupon
your correspondent so eloquently pre
sented the charitable needs of the de
voted little spot, Piedmont, a need
which demanded every missionary del
egate assembled to "come over and
help us next year-a need unneeded in
Anderson-that the Anderson ladies
delightfully, in their charming manner,
"relinquished in favor of Piedmont."
So, Mr. Editor, please como over with
Anderson next year and help us.

We strive to improve the quality of all merchandise sold in this seotion
of the State. We sell no trash, no shoddy Clothing, nor paper Shoes. Our

Oar business has grown so much that we will show our gratitude to the
publio by hammering down prices lower than over this Fall and Winter. If
you loan a man five thousand dollars at twenty per oent. you don't make as
much as if you charged him only five per cent, on fifty thousand dollars. It's
the amount of capital working for you that pays. Therein lies the secret of
our bargain-giving power. It's the large and increasing amount of ovr salea
whioh enables us to give the most Goods for the least money.
