Without losing a sioglo ward in tho

Three days of grace, so familiar to

A Chicago physician has just an
nounced his somewhat startling dis
covery that ho has succeeded in mak
ing the dead toart beat. If the doctor
would now discover how to make tho
dead boat pay, thc newspaper men of
tho country would fall over each other
in an effort to erect a suitable monu
ment to his memory.
An Eastern paper has recently com
piled a li&t of tho ex-United States
Senators who are holding Federal
offices. The list is a long one, and
shows that the Senate is careful to
maintain its "dignity" by providing
pluus for its dead timber, possibly
on tho ground that it would be humili
ating for a- former member of that
august body to stoop to honest labor.
Tho Farmers Institute at Clemson
last week is said to have been the big
gest gathering of the kind ever held
in the State, and the authorities are
delighted with tho confidence and?in
terest shown by the people of the
fctate in the efforts of the College tn
instruct the farmers in matters of vital
interest to. their business. There
were many interesting lectures on
practical subjects from distinguished
men. _ _
When a busineBB man rooeivos a
statement from a, wholesale house
and he receives many-ho sometimes
finds on - the statement, that unless
paid by a certain date a sight draft
will bo drawn for the amount due,
and no excuses are made for sending
the statement. The business man has
to move about and pay up the bill.
But when the business man sends out
statements to those owing him in an
effort to raise money to pay his bills,
what takes place many timos? The
person reeeiving the statement takes
it as an insult and grows exceedingly
hot.. The person who does this should
. engage in business, and in r, short timo
would get over his foolishness. The
sending out of statements ; and the
collecting of accounts is one .of the
most important parts of business, and
those who oegjeot it will sooner or
later become short of money.
The South has moro raw material
of a diversified character than any
other portion of tho globo. Besides,
it grows every crop needed fer the
sustenance of man or boast. It stands
at the opening doors of the world's
commerce, and can supply.at low rutes
almost every necessity of the human
family. There never was snob a
theatre for intelligent human endeavor
as tho South presents. It is tho high
duty of the State governments of tho
South or its municipalities and of its
publio spirited citizens, to pr?vido the
means to educate that portion of tho
population that gives, tho greatest
promise of the most fruitful outcome
to the country. A trained, eduoated
meehan ie is thu most powerful factor
in the progress of nations. Such a
man thinks, provides for the unex
pected, multiplies his forces and dares
the world to moot him. Southern
boya would .tiake such leaders if edu
cated in inducir?a! ahuols.
Last Thursday in Columbia the
Supremo Court dt<ud?d a ease in
which the right of trial by jury waa
involved, and whioh is o? great inter
est throughout the State. The case
originated in a magistrate's court in
Charleston, being entitled Pinokney
against- Green. It seems that claim
and delivery proceedings were insti
tuted against Oreen, whose attorney
demanded a jory. The*magistrato re
fused to summon a jury unless Creon
paid the costs, whioh amounts to $3.
Whereupon Green's attorney refused
to proceed further in tba caso and the
magistrate decided against him. The
matter was taken to tho circuit court
but the ?uogistratc's decision was up
held and;the c?*so went on up to the
supremo court. In deciding thc ca?c
the court staied that it waa simply a
matter, of tho right of trial by a jury
in a civil case, tho question of ooats
not entering into tho case. ' Thi*
tight is given by thc constitution and
th? d*oisio?s of the oireuit court and
oFtfco*uiag?8trate ia, reversed and tho
Cftso ordered back to thc magistrate's
court fer a new trial, this.time "

Cheap Cotton-and Uss of lt.
The New York Tribuno and other
Northern papers, which ore deploring
and condemning the "high price or
cotton," and solemnly warning the
Southern farmer that if he docs not
grow the staple in larger*, quantity and
at low prices, to meet the world's needs,
and ideas respecting the crop, Eng
land and Germany and France and.
Russia will grow it instead in their
colonies and provinces, at "three cents
a pound." or thereabouts, and ho will
forever lose tho business, or the great
er part of it, to his great pecuniary
loss-might,with some pertinence, per
haps, direct their warnings in another
quarter and to nearer ears.
The fact is, us Mr. W. P. Brown, one
of the manipulators of the existing
cotton corner, has noted, that the in
crease In the price of . cotton baa not
more than kept pace with the increaso
in the prices of all other commodities'
in the United States, so that cotton at!
8 to 10 cents in 1903 is not relatively
higher than cotton at 5 ando cents ?
few years ago. The cotton farmer
cannot continuo to grow cotton at dor
mer low prices and pay doubla prices
for all his supplies and everything he
has to buy. He cannot do'so without
certain loss, and therefore will not do
This bring us to tho main poiut.
When the prico of cotton must be Used
.BO low that ho cannot afford to grow
tho staple that the Southern cotton
farmer will, cheerfully or at any rate
certainly., surrender rhe crop to "Afri
can and Asiatic colonies," and turn his
attention to other crops whioh he now
neglects, much to bis own hurt, lt is
a matter of common observation in the
South that even when cotter, ranges at
fair prices, the all-cotton farmer is tho
poorest of his class. When it ranges
low in price he ie reduced to hopeless
debt and in many CUBOS to distress.
The mle ls that thu wealth of any
farmer in this section is in inverse ra
tio to his regular cotton crop, and the
exceptions are few and marked. The
most prosperous farmers every where
are those who make their farniB aulf
supporting in respect of grain and
moat and other supplies, and grow
cotton as au incident of their business
-as "a Bide crop."
Cheap cotton will make more such
Tanners. Fi VG- cen t cotton made many,
a few yours ago. Five croix cent cot
ton will huvti tho carno effect at any
and all times. "Fis" tho price at such
figures, and tho Southern cotton far
mer will drop tho staple and grow
all his, graiu and meat ?md other
supplies, a.:d raise kia own cattle and
stock instead of buying them from the
farmers of tho North and West, aa he
does now and baa been doing for a gen
And they will be greatly and per
manently profited and benefited in
every way by the change, and all the
South with them. How it will affect
tho farmers of tho North and Weat to
lose so many regular buyers of their
corn and wheat aud hoy and oats, and
butter and cheese and milk, and vege
tables and fruit, and horses and mules,
and beef aud hog products, otc, otc, We
may leave to them io say, or to the
Tribunes and other repr?sent?t.ve
papera of their section to say for them.
Oar own view of the matter ia that
tho agricultural interests of that sec
tion will havo quito aa much reason to
vegurd th? uuveut of permanently
"ch^ap cotton" with as much concern
na tho agricultural inlet8ita of the

Skeleton of a Century Unearthed by
The Woodruff News and Review in
its last issue contained the following
account of a skeleton which waa un
earthed in Spartanburg county by the
flood of Jnne 0:
"One hundred and ten years ago an
old Indian was buried, at bis own re

The custom was to bury everthing,
bows and arrows, cooking' utensils,

they arrived at tho Happy Hunting

A Tailoring Trust.
New York, August 15.-The latest
trust is a T dloring Trust- and Charles

MI?? ta tiaMni) if rill-J!-A--A.
IMIUI io l?uiiju ii.? mi; tavw vauioum
today when P. A. 8chwab, an uncle of
the former president of the Steel Trust,
and David J. Welch, for many years
the righthand man of a. big woolen
mill concern, began to make contracts
on a mammoth scale. Both those men
hove spent many years in this line of
business and are experts,
Charles M. Schwab is knovrv. to have
millions invested in several enterpris
es outside of the. Steel Trust., but it
waa a great surprise when it waa learn
cd.that ho was to supply the enormous
capital tdwperate tho bigantic combi
nation, iu tho tailoring business now in
process of formation. .
The trust, under tho name of the
"United Tailors," will begin operations
on August 22, in New York City, open
ing seven stores simultaneously. These
will be increased from day to day un
til a hundred retail branches are es
tablished in Gaeater New York, where
there aro already 12,000 tailors.
Branches will also be immediately es
tablished in the big cities throughout
tho country and extended AB quickly OB
possible to every city in the union of
Sooth Carolina will be represented by
Charleston and Columbia. In two
years time the trust expects to have
thia vast chain of branches in working
order and will then be giving employ
ment to nearly half a million of men.
A great central school will bo estab
hebert in Kew York in which cutters,
choppers and trimmers and salesmen
will bo educated and then sent ont over
the country to the branches where
they may be needed.
Tho trust will, so sooa as possible,
own its own mills, both here and
UULOHU. At present it has secured the
ontnut of one mill in Massachusetts,
and is now negotiating /or more.
The formation of this immense com
bination was proposed to Mr. Schwab
by his uncle and afr. Welch over a year
ago. At that tim*, however, he de
cided that his work in connection with
the Steel Trust was too heavy to per
mit him to go into details of any con
cern with such a huge plan.
Later, when ho had determined to
resign the prc Bi den ey of the Steel Cor
poration, he again took up the subject
of the Tailoring Trust. Ho has been
studying facts and figures for several
months, and on the day ho resigned
the presidency of the billion-dollar
corporation he uccepted the responsi
bility and hard work attached to this
new combination. A majority of tho
details will be worked out by Mr.
Schwab himself at his oilices at 71
Broadway, whore he has an entire Hoer:
of tho bnlidfng. What immense sum
the capitalization will reach is not
known, but it is believed that tho aew
trust will be a close corporation. C.
M. Schwab could not be seen today,
but Mr. P. A. Schwab and Mr. Welch
verified the facts, as here given.
