President Roosevelt han instructed
bis assistants to "uncover all cul
prits." The directions are broad
enough, but the example of white
wash is more tempting.
Mississippi proposes to convert all
of her cut-over pine timberlands into
orchards, and bas arranged, foi this
purpose, to bring many fruit farmerH
down there from Michigan. The
South is thc land of promise.

We see it stated that two Iowa men
settled a land line di?pute the other
day by shaking dice. This is an im
provement over the usual western
method of settling land line disputes
by using guns.
While there are prostrations and
deaths from heat all over the northern
portion of the country, both in cities
and in the rural district?, tho South
ern section of the country is com
paratively comfortable. You don't
hear of any one dying from heat in
th ip neck of the woods.
The Department of Agriculture has
issued a revised estimate on the acre
age of ootton this year. The acreage,
according to the revised estimate,
shows a decrease of 14.9 per cent, as
compared with last year. The gov
ernment's guess is still four points be
low that of the Southern Cotton As
sociation. Possibly the new board
of statistics decided it would just split
the difference- between the depart
ment's crooked figures and thc esti
mates of Mr. llarvic Jordan's asso
Dr. P. D. Pollock, who bad been in
ill health for some time, died at Mon
roe, Ga., on July 24. He had been
president of Mercer University for
several years, but had recently re
signed his position on account of fail
ing health. For years be had been at
the head of thc Baptist Federation of
Schools, and was a leader along edu
cational lines in the denomination.
He is universally beloved by the stu
dents of Mercer, as well as by the
ministers and laymen of the Baptist
Churoh, and hosts of friends through
out the South.
In a recent issue the News and
Courier, through correspondents in
the several counties of the State, pub
lished a summary of dispensary con
ditions in the ??tate as compiled from
their statements. The review is of
considerable interest and has its value
in showing to what extent the move
ment against the dispensary bas taken.
In eighteenoounties it is stated there is
an active agitation against the dispen
sary, and all of them will probably
vote it out. In the otber fourteen
counties there is cow no agitation,
but it is thought there will bo in the
majority of them in another year.
A cablegram received recently by
the State Department in Washington
from Shanghai, China, says that the
boycott on American goods commen
ced on July 19. The State Depart
ment has been informed that tho boy
cott was organized by the trade guilds
in the five ports, Shanghai, Canton,
Tientsin, Hankow and Ninohwang.
It is believed that the boyoott will
not be successful or very harmful to
American goods, except in Shanghai
and Canton, where the guilds are par
ticularly strong. The United States
government oan take no official aotion
so long as it remains a simple refusal
to purchase American goods, but it in
thought that the Chinese government
will discourage the boyoott as far as

Co the 3rd page of the Intelligen
cer this week we publish a letter re
cently received by .Gol. B. F. Crayton
from Senator T. B. Butler, of Chero
kee ?oynty, which, should be read
carefully by every citizen of tho coun
ty. In referring to the letter the
Gaffney Ledger, wbich is published at
the county site of Cl.erokee, sty*:
"We want to commend Senator But
ler's letter to Col. B. F, Crayton, of
Anderson, as published in another
column. It's about the best thing
the Senator ever did. - It is a truthful
statement of affairs, coming, as we
believe, from a man who inclined to
ward the dispensary, but who, seeing
the good results aoorning from voting
it out, is willing tbat those results be
made known to others that they may
profit from our experience. . Again we
eay, bravo, Senator!"
Hot weather hints are now in order,
and we would suggest that whatever
you do on a hot day, don't consult tho
thermometer. As soon as you have
seen the readings'of one your blood
will boil exactly as if you had tried to
/oool off by sitting oo tho gates of hades
' and swinging your legs over tho Pit.
Try to keep your mind sweet and pure
aud calm. If you've done any evil in
, your life, forget jt; If you've ?ope
any good, remember it. If tbe bal
ance is altogether against you, resolve
that in future the good shall ha\e the
bigger account on life's ledger. And
then smile in the cooling breeze creat
ed by turning over a new leaf. Don't
worry. Care killed a cat, aud catH
can revel in weather so hot that a hu
mau being feels tempted to follow
Sidney Smith's advice and literally
hhed his fiesh and sit in his bones.
Defer your worrying until the autum
nal days-and then the air is so brac
ing and the prospect so pleasing that
you couldn't worry if you tried. Above
all, don't talk about the weather.
Thia prcHcut discourec isn't talking
about the weather; it'o warning you
against weather. Besides, it's un
grateful to be abusing tho weather
now, when but a little while ago we
were singing "In the Good Old Sum
mer Time," and longing for it. He
consintent. Cool-blooded people arc
always consistent, and maybe it's the
consistency that keeps their blood
cool. Remember these things-and
then forget the heat-aud comfort
