Some people live too long, or rath

The decision of the post office de
partment to give, as far as possible,

will doubtless meet with the approval
of most people. Sometimes there is
a good deal of unconscious selfish

ing of well nigh every post office open
on Sundays and its clerks at work
distributing mail. People do not
think how those employees would
welcome Sunday as a day off from

Ssme young men want to get on in
the world and some, evidently, do
not. The man who has ambition,
who puts his conscience into his work
and does his best will ultimately get
to the front. But the man who Is
always watching the clock to see
when leaving off time comes, who
take3 no pride in his work, and who
is not interested in his employer^
welfare, will make no progress; he
win end his career pretty much as he
began it. It is impossible to find in
the ranks of highly successful men a
single one who gained his success by
dilatory and slipshod methods.

to get dangerously near the edge of

About School Books.
The Dillon Herald suggests that
when the State Board of Education
meets in Columbia next month to re
new the contracts for handling text
books they should make some
changes in the present ^system. The
Herald says the system new in use
is altogether impracticable and
points out why it thinks so.
In the first place dealers are com
pelled to handle books on a 10 per
cent commission basis and it is need
less to say that the dealer finds thb
school book business unprofitable.
The State depository receives ten per
cent on all books Bold by the countj
depositories and the margin of profit
is not large enough to pay the ex
penses of handling the bocks.
The Herald thinks that the State
depository should be abolished and
county depositories should be alloweo.
to order hooks direct from the pub
lishers, and says if sorr<j change is
not made in the prese nt system that
will give the retail depositories an1
opportunity to make a reasonable
profit on the books it will be a hard
matter to find responsible dealers vo
handle the books next season.
The school book question is a hard
question to solve to the satisfaction
of the various Interests engaged in
the attempt to solve it. All are
agreed that the books should be fur
nished to the children at the very
lowe?t possible price, and the ques
tion is which is the besr. plan by
which this can be done satisfactorily
'As the Herald says, there is no
profit to the dealer the way the books
are handled now. The reason of this
is because the discount of twenty per
cent is divided between the State and
the County depositories, each receiv
ing ten per cent. If dealers were al
lowed to buy direct from the pub
lishers, they could make twenty per
cent, which would pay them very
As the price of each book for
which it must be sold to the children
is (printed on it, this cbnld he done
if responsible dealers could be found
in all the towns where books are
needed, whom the publishers would
be willing to trust with handling
their books on commission. Possibly
it would be best to let the dealer
make his own terms with the pub
With the retail price cf the books
safeguarded as they are under the
present law, the State depository can
be abolished without interfering in
the least with the handling of the
books. Responsible dealers would be
found in each county, who could
easily furnish the books at the prices
printed on them to teachers prepaid,
either by express or post.
Forgetting the War.
Governor Foss of Massachusetts
has vetoed a bill appropriating $3,
500 to aid a proposed celebration at
Lowell of the first blood shed by the
Union troops in the War Between
I the Sections. The Massachusetts gov
ernor bases his veto upon the prin
ciple that the State should lend its
prestige and substance to a celebra
tion of the closing of hostilities rath
er than to their beginning. As the
Columbia Record says, ' this Is a very
advanced position for any one> to as
sume, especially for the governor of
the State which was rankest in aboli
tion sentiment, yet we find that the
position taken by Governor Foss is
not criticized by the Massachusetts
papers, although some of them point
out that the governor's ideas, al
though in accord with the public sen
timent of the day, are at variance
with the theory upon which memori
als have been erected to the minute
men at Lexington and Concord and'
the heroes of Bunker HUL There Is,
of course, this difference, that thest>
memorials perpetuate .he story of a
war for domestic independence
against a foreign oppression, whereas
the celebration at Lowell would
commemorate the opening of what
the Northern people call a "Civil
War." "We are one people again."
says the Boston Transcript, "and the
only events that we can now logically
commemorate with a common enthu
siasm are those connected with the
close of the strife that threatened
to divide us." "It is doubtful if we
in the South are as fully prepared to
assume this position as our friends
in Massachusetts seem to be. To be
sure, there is no proposed celebration
in this State of the semi-centennial
anniversary of the firing on Fort
Sumter, which now approaches, and
yet we imagine it wil." be very many
years before North Carolina, for in
stance, will abandon her boast that
her soldiers were "first" at Bethel,
furthest at Gettysburg and last at
Appomattox." The trend of senti
ment in the North as exemplified by
the veto of the Massachusetts gov
ernor and the approval given it by
the Massachusetts newspapers is,
j however, well worthy of our consid
eration down here."
A State "Clean-Up" Day.
April 10 has been set apart by the
State Board of Health as "Clean-up
Day." and the cooperation of all
boards of health is asked. We pub
lish the call of the State Board of
Health on the fourth page of this is
sue. As the Spartanburg Herald
says, aside from the moral effect of
such a campaign, the beautifying ef
fect, and the educational value of
such a demonstration, the following
good results are sure to follow In
1. Fewer flies during the spring
2. Fewer mosquitoes this summei
"Less typhoid, mataria, and hook
hook worm and dia' rhae disease.
4. Freedom from disgusting odors
from your own or some other back
5. General improvement in the ap
pearance and sanit.-i y tone of your
6. The advertising value to you
and your town which such a clean-up
day will bring.
These campaigns are commenteo
on by newspapers and medical jour
nals. All over the country, the hold
ing of a "Clean-up" day is accepted
by the outside world as evidence of
enlightenment, sanitary culture and a
desire for the best in morals and
physique on the part of those partic
ipating. Let us all do what we can
to carry out the suggestions of the
State Board of Health.
