Kverybody is expecting a ?leter- i
mined fight on thc dispensary at the j
coming sesi?n of thc General As
sembly. From all reports thc dis
pensary ?-ill have to fight for its life.
The Illinois Federation of Woman's
clubs declares that extravagant dress
es are ruinous to women. Thc federa
tion might have added that they are
even more ruinous to the husbands
who have to pay the bills.
It is not too late to seed u large
acreage of wheat in South Carolina,
and the more home raised wheat the
South Carolina fanner has the h:?H
western flour he will have to buy with
his cotton money.

There are indications at present
that then: will not bc enough offices,
even under thc most satisfactory eon
ditions of patronage, for all faithful
Republicans. Maybe this is a rea

Thc purification of polities through
the admission of women to thc suffrage
proceeds apace in Colorado. Women
concerned in election fraud cases
crowded thc Denver Courts the other
day. Several made affidavit that they
had sold their votes for $f> each.
An Atlanta man has petitioned thc
courts to chango his name whioh is
now Smith. Evidently be does not
intend to run for political oihoe, and
therefore will not need tho support of
the numerous members of that large
and influential family.
Thc United States Agricultural
Uureau report, which was issued last
Saturday afternoon, estimates thc cot
ton crop this year at 12,102,000 balcp,
which is th' largest crop ever made,
and SB a re Jt the market took a de
cided slump. If this estimate proves
correct thore will be no moro ten cent,
Evidently the hen rather than thc
showy but useless eagle should be the
emblem of the nation. Secretary
Wilson says that tho hens lay enough
eggs in a month to pay tho interest
on the national debt for a year. Even
the goose that laid thc golden egg oc
casionally was entitled to small con
sideration compared with the hens of
our happy and prosperous country.
The reports from the scotions where
Commissioner Watson has settled im
migrants seem to indicate that South
Carolina is to bc very much congratu
lated on thc work of this bureau, as
yet in its infancy. Mr. Watson has
brought in good, steady p20ple, who
have gone to work with good will and
seem to bc satisfied with their new
homes and to become apart of its life.
The State has room for many more
such people, and wc hope thousands
of them will come and settle among
With Secretary Morton asking Con
gress to give the navy $114,530,638.3-1
for its expenses in thc fiscal year be
ginning July 1, 1005, it is apparent
that .thc licet that costs $100,000,000
a year has come to stay. This vast
expenditure means that the policy of
naval expansion will go on until tho
American navy is second only to that
of England in size, and will remain, as
now, second to none in ship to ship
efficiency. When all thc American
war ships now building are completed
the navy will bc thc third largest in
the world. England and Franco will
be the first and second.
Regardless of what may bc thc
right or wrong of the present war be
tween Russia and Japan, and regard
less of the fact that tEc Japaneso aro
a heathen people for thc most part,
tho world looks on with unfeigned ad
miration as the brave Japs give evi
dence over and over again of a bravery
that is astonishing in its nature. Thc
Japanese may lose their fight in the
end, although it does not look that
way now, but if they lose they will
have some consolation from the faot
that they have furnished the world
with an example of heroism that will
make it better and nobler.
Congressman T. W. Hardwiok, of
the Tenth Georgia District, a few
days ago wrote a letter to Senator A.
O. Baoon, of Georgia, asking his views
on the present politioal situation.
Senator Bacon replies at length. The
Senator says there is an efforts to Re
publioanize the South. He declares
that white supremacy mast be main
tained in the South and everywhere} '
that the prosperity of the South if
due to white supremacy. He advo
cates the repeal of tte fiftsent'i amend
ment and insists that unless that sb all
be done the people of the South ?rill
be forced to maintain their position of

adequately tri tell what that supper is;
tho dishes aro abundant, wann and
varied. Wo had tho pleasure of at
tondingtwo such occasions-Mr. Jessee
Adkins und Mr. R. E. Lee's.
At Mr. Loo's, last, there, were thiity
neighboring guests and thu supper,
supplementing tho laughing, joking,
song-singing "shucking" outside, wan
a novelty and-well, a delight to all
who would partake or investigate.
Vnindi', were hot, boiled cabbage and
bacon, savory Btewed beef ehicken
pica in row?, hot biscuits, butter, cot
tee, pickles, rice puddings, potato,
peach, pumpkin and apple pies and
custards. These were good in their
way and invoked in reverence the
homo benediction, but the jokes that
followed, in heat, abundance and irrev
erence would bailie the injenuty of any
brain or appetite not accustomed to
furnishing corn shuckings with the
prime enjoyment. As ono table full
gave place to another, the satisfied
guests repaired outside to the win
dows, where they aided the digestion
of the new participants with such
wholeHomo relishes as: "That's it, give
him a whole chicken at once, this is de
lirst good meal he had in a year!"
"Look at him now! watch his throat
how it swolle." "See Tommy's hair
stand on end; don't choke yourself."
"Jimmie's father nearly killed himself
eating just now-ho must do tho
samo." "Good boy, Pete, gobble tho
biscuits; push tho plato to him so ho
won't have to ask.1' "Gee! I wouldn't
he J (di nny's wife for a good deal and
have to cook tor him." "Look out
there, Jumbo, you can't swallow a
chicken leg in a bite!" "Say, watch
Sammy's eyoB pop out of his head
there! ho's got it ?own," etc. It was a
novelty ana maybe an enjoyment, but
it was all there, supper and jokes, and
tho shucking was don? to a turn. A.

A Triple Tragedy.

from this place in tho Kollytown sec
tion, HIU> t and killed his wife last night,
murdered his brother-in-law, Mr. Sid
Kelly, this morning about 0 o'clock
and was himself Bhot to death about
4 o'clock this afternoon after an all
day light by a sheriffs posBe. James
is a man about GO >ears of age and
heretofore a peaceable, inoffensive
Two years ago he was sent to the
asylum at Columbia and had been dis
charged and returned home only about
seven weeks ago.
Nothing is known of the events lead
ing up to the killing of his wife last
night, except thatJameB had threat
ened to kill his wife's mother yester
day afternoon. Why this threat did
not impress her son, Mr. Sid Kelley,
who is a very fearless and careful man,
is not known. At all events he shot
his wife to death in the early part of
last night and the other inmates of the
house, his wife's mother and his two
half-grown children, tied at once.
