The Columbia Record says "Thos

Thursday at a meeting of the trus

"The tru^ees without exception

To the Defeated.
The Times and Democrat extends
its sympathy and condolence to every
candidate who failed to get elected.
Politics has its lights and shadows?
mostly shadows. The man who wir?,
at the primary earns his honors, and
may the L >rd have meroy on the man
who loses. Yet it cinnot be question
ed that often the man who loses 1b
the winner. The winner ought to b?
a goodSamaritan and the looser ought
to kesp his lips closed. It is hard
for the man who triumphs to suppress
exultation; it is difficult for the van
quished to conceal his wound. The
victor alone is worthy of praise who
knows how to be generous. The de
feated alone deserve sympatty wbo
know how to suffer in silence. Tnis
Is true not only in war, but in poli

SOME ADVIGE TO PARENTS OF
Which, if Followed, Will Help to
Hake School Work lasier
We demand, says the New York
American, on behalf of tbe fobool
children and tbe school teachers of
to-day, that mothers and fathers co
operate willingly and intelligently in
the work that the school teachers have
There If much talk, in homes, of
the school teachers' short-comings.
There is far too much readiness to
listen to tbe stories of children excus
ing their own poor work with criti
cism of teaohers.
The matter Is most serious. Tbe
teaoher cannot possibly do his best
work and give tbe best results unless
tbe parents co-op?rato with him in
telligently. Let us consider what the
duty of parents is, and what the
teachers have a right to expect.
Fathers and mothers know what an
atroolous tb.ng a spoiled child Ig. Y :u
pity tbe father and mother that must
control one spoiled child. Don't fail
to pity the sobool teacher who is ex
pected to control, by kindness and In
telligence exclusively, adcz;n or more
Tbe first thing for you fathers and
mothers is to see to it that you do not
iend spoiled ohildren to the sohools
Rjmcmber that the most intelligent,
conscientious, devoted teacher can
see all of his work made useless by
overpettlng of a child or foolish sev
erity with a child.
Fathers and mothers In America
demand, properly, that a teacher shall
not strike a child. They should Bend
to the teacher ohildren that do not
require blows. Fathers and mothers
demand that in school their children
shall be controlled by moral psrsua
tion, appeals to their better nature
by intelligence. Let them send to
the teachers children that are accus
tomed to be controlled in that man
Raalize that the father is a teach
er's partner in education, and tbat
the mother Is the teacher's ally. How
impossible it is In a family to brine
up the ohildren properly if the father
adopt3 one method and the mocber
How many ohildren are rt quired by
contradictory orders from father and
mother. Think what a task you put
before the teachers, when you expect
them to control so many ohildren who
at I ome are too of t;en directed In op
position to a teacher's wishes and
even encouraged to disobey the teach
We emphasize this point: Control
your children by kindness and intelli
gence. You have no right to send
children otherwise controlled to the
public schools. If you say, "I have a
ooy tbat I can only control by whip
ping him, or "I have a girl that must
be whipped once in a while." How
have you a right to say, "I will net
allow a teacher to touoh my child?"
If you cannot control one child
without brutality, how can you expect
a public school teacher to control forty
or fifty children by kindness? Ra
member that we do not excuse under
any circumstances the brutal treat
ment of a child by a teacher.
Every human being has the same
rights in this world. It is an outrage
acoordirg to our law for a man to
strike another equal to him in
strength. It is an infinitely greater
outrage for any humau being to wil
fully stike a weak child that is de
This newspaper, with pleasure, will
always share in the prosecution of any
teaoher or of any human being guilty
of wilfully striking a helpless child If
effective prosecution can possibly be
brought about. But we do tell parents
they should be frank with themselves,
and honest to the teacners.
It is a disgrace to send to the pub
lic school children that have been
made tbe victims of blows and bru
tallty at home and expect the teaoher
to do tbe hardest of all work, tbe in
stilling of education, without recourse
to the only kind of persuasion that
tbe child is accustomed to obey.
Nowhere in the world is paternal
love more highly developed tnan In
America. Nowhere are greater sac
ri?oes made for the coming genera
tion. The sight of a father working
himself to death for the Bake of his
family in bo common in the United
States tbat it excites no comment.
The mother slaving day In and day
out tbat her daughters may have what
she could not have, that her sons may
have for their education the money
that she ought to spend on herself, is
tbe rule, not tbe exoeption. But too
indulgent or mlBtaken a Section ruins
Never encourage a child to speak
disrespectfully of a teaoher. Never
encourage a child to put blame upon
a teacher. There are defective teach
ers, of courso. And it does happen
hat the child may bring to its father
or mother truthful tales of shortcom
ings on the teaober's part. j
Investigate these things if you will.*]
But investigate them for yourselves,
remembering the tendency of child
.hood to exaggeration.
Don't he made foolish by the fact
Shat It is your own child that talks.
Find ou'i for yourself, without en
couraging the ctilld to disobedience
by listening too eagerly to its story.
Then, if you find tbat your child has
spoken absolutely truthfully, tako
such steps as you may please.
Don't laugh at your ohild when it
tells of tbe "smart thing*" that it
dee? at school to bother the teacher
or to bother other pupils.
Never try to irfluence the child
agilnst the teacher under any con
ditions. You hurt your own child in
dnitely more than you hurt the teach
er when you encourage the ohild to
rebel against necessary discipline.
Remember that the work of school
teachers in the noblest and the hard
est work in the world. Remember
that it is infinitely the most impor
tact work In this world.
You ask of the teacher a devotion
that can only be given as a result of
the highest possible moral character.
Instinct compels us to make great
sacrifices to the children of onr body.
Nature attends to that, the human
race would die without it.
The school teaoher is not the fath
er or the mother of the children sit
ting on the benches. Yet we ask of
the teaoher a devotion greater than
tbat of any other public servant.
We demand that he give every ounce
of hi ility, of his interest, to chil
dren L .t will not thank him Whose
success he will not live to see or share,
exhausting his vitality in return for
extremely poor pay.
Fathers and mothers, be conscien
tious partners cf tbe teachers.
For your children's sake especially,
and for the teacher's sake as well, put
yourself in the teacher's placs. Im
press upon your child tbe great, noble
work that the teacher does. Till the
child how of cen it has happened that
men successful in this world have
owed their success entirely to their
Impress upon them especially the
fact that good men and successful men
have alway? been eager in childhood
to show gratitude for tbe work that
tbe teachers do.
You can easily impress the obi'd in
the right way. Make it your solemn
duty to lighten the burden of the
men and the women in the publio
BCbools, upon whom you defend for
your children's welfare.
Do not neglect this.
HEW ?0TX?N PICK SB.
That Is Doing Good Work Out in the
The Augusta Chronicle says Mr.
Elbert W. Cramer, of E'.k City, Okla
homa, was in tbe city lor a short time
Thursday and was drawn into a con
versation by several local planter? re
garding tbe scarcity of negro laborers
and the unwillingness of the average
negro to work six days out of seven at
this time of the year.
Mr. Cramer tells and interesting
story of a ne v Invention of a friend
of his in the west wbici has al
ready been successfully tried and
which bids fair to revolutionize the
work cf cotton picking. It is a ma
chine to plok octton says Mr. Cramer,
The principle of the machine is
that of the ?aoum or the pneu
matic tube. Tae cotton bolls are
sucked through tbe tube and loaded
directly into a wagon. The tube that
receives the ootton reminds one Ol
The tube Is a piece of large--ized
hose made of a fine grade of ruboer
covered with wire netting. There is a
nczzie Is lined with a series of fins or
fingers. The operator holds the ncz
z e within a few inches of tbe cotton
bolls. Suotion causes the bool to be
drawn into the nozzle, where the fins
catch and hold it for the fraction of
a second and till the ootton is gently
pulled away from tbe boll.
The machine is designed to be
fastened to a platform on the rear
end of a wagon. Tbe machine rest*
on an iron stand four feet hieh. It
consists of a tpicially made vacuum
fan. It can be operated by a small
gasoline motor or by hand-power,
one man turnidg aorank and another
directing the nczzie.
A number of successful tests have
been made with tue machine, mve
acres of cotton were picked near E k
City, this year by one of tbe machines
in competition with fifteen negroeB

ADVANTAGE OP BEING A LIVE
All Other People Bave to Fat Pood
that Contains Poisonous
Arguments for preferring farm life
to all others are r.eeivlng additional
impetus in these piping days of in
vestigation and exposure. The
oharaiB of rural life, always a favorite
theme of the poets, have been bo add
ed to on the practical side by modern
invention that all bands were about
to agree that there was no existence
to be compared to that on "a little
'arm, well tilled," located near a
trolley line, strung with telephone
wires and in touch with the rural
free delivery. But if any doubt
lingered it has been dispelled by the
advocates of the pure food bills and
the muck-rakers who stuck their forks
into the mysteries of the paoking
yards. The farmer seems to be the
only man that is safe in these days of
miasmatic mixtures and devilish
adulterations. The only way to be
sure of your meat is bo raise it your
self, do all the feeding, the killing,
the skinning and the cooking. Y~u
must not take your eye off the animal
at any stag? of the process until it nas
been landed in the stomach. If any
middleman steps in at any cjnjunc
ture, if he is allowed to work his gamo
at any turn in the process, you are
Here we were innocently and unsus
plolously devouring the steaks and
hams and sausage and souse that wa*
set before us, undisturbed by r>oubt
and unriffl d by lack of confidence.
We suppoNod tbings were what they
seemed, but, alas, there has been a
rude awakening. It an artiole now
before us, by a Kansas City expert, is
to ba taken literally, lb is practically
impossible to got any pure food it
this country. The butter is covered
<rltb coal tar dyes; the meat has more
or leas embalming fl .id; the catsup 1b
colored wich coal uyea and has sali
cylic sold in it. The lard in which
the potatoes are fried probably Jon
tmno purtionB of hogs that have died
natural deaths and nob been slaught
ered under sanitary conditions; pcssl
bly it died of some disease. Tbe
bread is full of alum; the tea and
ctffse contain oopper; the vegetables
have, different varieties of artificial
colorirg As to pepper, we are grave
ly informed, anything pure in that
line Is out of the question.
Either the trees nave quit growing,
the berries hitve ceased to ripen, or
tbe trophioal people have q dt ship
plug to market for lack 01 demand.
It Is found cheaper to make it of
oocoacut shell*, sawdu?t and ola?,
and of these tootbsome ingredients is
tbe puppur of co-amerce. Evcu lut
apple does not escape, but is made
as deceptive as the one growing on
the Dead Sea, which is beautiful to
behold, but a fraud to the bite. The
oles red apple on tbe stand Is rosy be
cause, nine times out of ten, it is
painted with coal tar dyes. At least,
though, you will say, we are not to
lose the cherished illusion of new
potatoes. Vain hope. Old potatoes
are freshened up in alum water after
being soraped, and thus passed off as
the real thing, ju_icut of the patohi
The gorge rises as we proceed, and
the fond ejiculation, so c!ten uttered,
chat we would like once more to have
a good, old fashioned farm dinner,
comes forth with additional emphasis
Surely the farmer himself escapes all
these dangers. Oan he not be sure of
bis vegatables by pulling them up
right In his garden and following
j them to the table? Oan't he catch a
chicken running on the grass that has
.jever been a coop or htad of a cold
I storage house, behead it, pluok it, and
have mother to serve it for. dinner?
Oan't he batcher his own beef, dress
his own mutton, gather his own
roasting ears, snatch his own apples
from the trees far from the machina
tions of the middleman and proof
against the wiles of tbe packers?
Admitting tbe worst for denlzaos of
tbe cities, agreeing that all ordinary
consumers are at tbe mercy of food
fraud*, there are still millions of
homes where the prying manipulator
and the audacious adulterator cannot
get In his work.
There is plenty of good food lb the
country; the farmers are raising it by
the hundreds of millions of tons.
Much of it, we are sure, reaches the
consumer without contamination,
and there is no reason why all of it
should not be delivered in satisfac
tory shape. It is the rascally fellow
who "sits at the receipt of customs"
in the oibles, tarries at the half-way
house to drop his fly in tbe ointment,
that needs shutting iff. With close
Inspection, scientific teats and heavy
fines for adulteration, the principal
part of the evils may he avoided, and
all the rasoaiB put out of business.
These measures have been too long
delayed, and we are suffering for our
easy, happy-go-lucky way of attend
lng to such matters. It needed a
rude awakening to bring us to our
senses, but now that we are aroused
there will be no further use for any
body, in oltv or country, any longer
saying that It is Impossible to get
pure food. The conditions are bad?
very bad, Indeed?but as frequently
baprjen8 In tbe aff ilrs of life, are not
near so dark a* painted.

COTTON BEB SPIDER
Hm Done Considerable Damage to
Cotton in this Stat ,
E G. Titus, of the department of
agriculture, has recently made a re
port on his investigations of the cot
ton red spider In North and South
Carolina, Georgia and Alabama,
i Ir jury to cotton by the red spider,
this report says has been prevelant in
many sections of the ootton growing
area during the past two years. The
cause of the injury is a minute yel
lowish-red mite that feeds on the oot
ton plant, principally on tbe under
sides of the leaves The mites usual
ly appear early in the season, but do
little appreciable damage until mid
summer or later. * The injuries rarely
become ?erious unless accompanied by
long continued dry weather; in such
an event the multiplication of the
mites is very rapid, and the consequent
Injuries are often sufflcent to kill the
This species was first desoribed to
the department cf agriculture in 1900,
and the inseota were found in Baton
Rougbe, La. In 1903 and 1904 they
had caused considerable damage there
Tbe pest is very probable distributed
throughout the entire cotton growing
area of the South, althougn during
late years its appearance in injurious
numbers had not been reported until
the summer of 1903, when it caused
considerable damage to cotton In
South Carolina and Georgia. In 1904
red spiders were found at Bate?burg
and in other sections of Sou on Caroli
na. During the sumtrer of 1905 many
reports of its occurrence wf-ro reo?lved
from points in North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, and
in several of t.vsd states tne nuecsa
were found in injurious numbers.
From investigations made In Soutb
Carolina in 1905 lc was noticed tna?
from a point on the margin of a field
where there were growing large poke
bnrry plants the lnfestatlou by the red
spider had spread over a fan shaped
area of tbe adjoining cotton. The de
partment believes tnat when a field is
found to be infested with the spiders
?bat they may be gotten rid of by
spray top old plants and pulling up o;
burning the young ones.

There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inllamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube
is inflamed you have a rumblingsound
or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed, Deafness is the result,
and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube rtstored to
its normal condition hearing will be
destroyed forever: nine cases out of ten
are caused by Catarrh, which is noth
ing but an inflamed condition of the
mucous surfaces. We will give One
Hundred Dollars for any case of Deaf
ness (caused by catarrh) that cannot
be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.
