A WORD ABOUT
AND OTHER FLOURS.
THE only reason that the people of South Carolina
have to eat sticky Flour is that there is no Pure Food
Law in this State, and, as a consequence, this State is
made the .dumping ground of every refuse lot of cheap,
adulterated Flour in the country. We have no Pure
'Food Law because the people do not want it, as it will
force manufacturers to discontinue their reckless and in- .
jurions adulteration, and incidentally in crease the cost of
pure foodstuff*. The howling demagogues of tho coun
try could not stand any increase in the cost of living,
and therefore the State is hopelessly committed to im
finch is not th? case, however, with our Flours, for
every Car of our Flou,* ;s thoroughly tested for impuri
ties, and our mill contracts guarantee absolute purity in
every detail. . >..
r We rise to tell the dear people that if the great, good
and patriotic Legislature will not protect them from the ;
sharks that are feeding them on . injurious minerais
which they call Flour, we will do so ; but we moat charge
them tho price of pure Flour, aa we cannot sell pure
Flour as cheap as the other fellow sells dirt and Flour.

group of forts on Kekwan mountain.
The attack wus repulsed."
Mukden, November 21.- The artil
lery has been silent for two days. The
opinion prevails that if the Japanese
do not attack. Geucrul Kuroputkin
will take tho offensive again.
Tokio, November 2?.-lt is reported
that thu Japanese saps dir cted against

The defensive works outside tho para

aro shelling thu parapets and inflicting
heavy damage. Tho occupation of

Wanted, A Reform School.
i About seven years ago the women of
Alabama, seeing the great evil done to
youthful lawbreakers by association
with adnlt criminals, inaugurated a
movement for the establishment of an
industrial school for white boys. A
committee was appointed, which pre
sented to certain legislators the great
need of such an institution. The leg
islature granted a charter for a "re
formatory and Industrial school, to be
established under the care of tho
State of Alabama * * * for the benefit
of orphan, helpless and wayward chil
dren/' and said school "to receive and
provide for the welfare of white chil
dren between the ages of eight aud
sixteen, who, by reason of their con
duct or surroundings, are likely to be
come base or criminal, or hurtful to
the State or the best interests of so
ciety * * * or such children as 6hall
have committed potty offenses or
crimes;" said children to be committed
to the school or reformatory by any
judge or other propor officer.
The legislature appropriated three
thousand dollars tor this school, which
appropriation was supplemented hy
contributions from public.spirit ed citi
zens, and a school was established at
East Lake, near Birmingham. The
legislature has since made increasing
appropriations, and now ninety boys
are being clothed, boarded, educated
and trained in useful industries. A
prominent judge recently, said that Al
abama could better do away with
every other public institution tuan the
Tennessee has had an industrial
school for fifteen years. Careful rec
ords kept of the subsequent careers of
the thousand boys dismissed show that
lees than two per cent reverted to evil
ways. Experience having shown that
it is cheaper to prevent crime than to
punish the criminal, all save fourteen
