"Don't marry a man," said a New
Jersey preacher, addressing a class- of
young women, "until you know about

Tobacco growers of Kentucky and
Tennessee are incensed at reports of
the Department of Agriculture which
show a 20 per cent, increase in the
acreage of the crop. These reports
are believed by them to have been in
Bpired by the Tobacco trust.
The postoffice department has is
sued a fraud order against a concern
that advertised a lotion to make black
men white. Now if it will bar the
lotions that are guaranteed to take
the kink out of the wool, the race

An insurance agent says that the
young wife of an old man rejuvenates
him, and that he would consider a
man of 70 who married a girl of 20 a
much better risk than before. Here
is a point to be considered by those
sweet young things with a keen sense
of business who pick out eligible old

Of the five honor men of the class
of 11105 at West l'oint one is from
CJeorgi?, one from Michigan, one from
North Carolina, one from Oregon and
one from Maryland. The South get3
three of the five "stars'" and the West
the other two. The new South seems
to be jogging along pretty well, com

Widespread attention has been at
tracted by the reported threats of a
Chinese boycott against American
made goods, in retaliation for the ac
tion of this government in enforcing
the provisions of the old Chinese ex
clusion law. The matter is of especial
interest in tho South, because of
the large volume of our cotton tex

S. II. Hardwiok, the South Carolina
IVesB Association at its approaching
meeting at White Stone Springs will
have the pleasure of an address from
Hon. M. L. Smith, of Camden, speak
er of the House of Representatives
of South Carolina. Mr. Smith is an
eloquent orator, and the members of
the Association may expect a rare
treat from him.
Several hundred negro educators at
Tuskegee, Ala., have passed resolu
tions calling upon their people to ab
stain from crime and also protesting
against lynching. An additional
paragraph in the resolutions calling
upon, their people to give up criminals
to the officers of the law and to cease
covering up crime by protecting known
violators would have been thoroughly
\ in order.
President Roosevelt is doing his
best to bring about peace between
Russia and Japan. August 1st has
been definitely set as the time for
the meeting of the peace commission.
In the meantime there is no indica
tions that an armistice will be de
clared. Linevitoh thinks he has vic
tory in his hand and the Japanese are
equally confident. So with peace
almost in sight the prospects are that
there will yet be a bloody battle.
Should the Russians win the whole
situation would be changed and peace
negotiations might be broken off
altogether. But thnir chances seem
Just now the press of the South is
Agitating the immigration question to
c considerable extent and is doing
much good. The South needs immi
grants, but it should pay oareful at
tention to the sort it gots. We do
not want to Bee any system of indis
criminate importation & inaugurated.
We want only the best quality. If we
get Amerioaus from the other
States of .ho North, si et us get such
foreigners as readily assimilate Ameri
can ideals and ideas?-the kind of Eu
ropeans *?ho have really helped de
velop the northwest in the last forty
wears. The South is about the oclj
flection of the country iu whioh the
ideals of American oitizenship have
been preserved. She owes it to her*
self and to the nation at large to see
that only suoh immigrants are allow
ed to enter as are'.lit to maintain the
standards. Col. E. J. Watson, the
Immigration Commissioner of South

This is a good suggestion from the

that every pupil in the public schools
of the State be requested to contribute
one cent to help purchase a silver ser
