Whatever profit a farmer makes

To the average man the TI.tIv

It is to the great advantage of

is to have the roads in good condition

sell in towns, the roads to which are

takes money to improve them is ex

Eternal Vigilance "Necessary.
It behooves democrats to be on
their guard. The friends of preda
tory interests?the benoflciaries of
special privilege and governmental
favoritism?are always at work. They
never sleep. With them politics is a
business because they make the gov
ernment a business asset. They are
able to bring pressure to bear upon
their class of papers. When they
want to nominate a man for office, he
at once become a man of distinction,
a man of ability?just the man for
whom the people are looking. And
they have somebody for office when
ever there is a place to be filled.
They have their candidates for
congress and for the senate. They
have their candidates for all the
judgships, for the cabinet and for
the presidency. They are just now
laying their plans to capture the
democratic national convention and
nominate a candidate who will be
satisfactory to the Wall Street inter
ests. If they find that the progressive
sentiment is too strong to be entirely
ignored, they will take someone who
has been progressive enough to fur
nish them something to talk about
but not progressive enough to fright
en the interests.
The democratic party seems ready
to come into its own. After a long
fight the progressive policies which
aroused the opposition of all the
predatory interests in 1S96 are be
coming the accepted policies of the
country, but the interests will do
their best to nominate a candidate
who is not in sympathy with them
and who tried to retard their prog
gress. Let not the democrats be de
ceived. The work of a democratic
president will be no easy work. The
cleaning out of the stables will be a
Herculean task. It will require
strength of body, strength of mind
and unflinching moral purpose.
It is no time for compromise. The
times require a stalwart, fearless,
leader. The time is not ripe yet for
the selection of ; ? andidate. Con
gress will largely shape the issues and
may develop the man but whether he
comes from the senate or the house
or from a state position, he must
measure up to the requirement of the
occasion and be able to summon the
progressive hosts to his banner. He
must be positive and progressive if
he is to win the confidence of those
who are seeking remedial legislation.
The above ringing call from the
Commoner will be heartily endoised
by every Democrat who wants to see
his party achieve permanent success.
The democratic party is on trial, and
it cannot afford to betray the confi
dence the people reposed in it at
the polls last November. It has been
commissioned to do a great work,
and it must do that work, or the
people will reject it at the polls. It
is discouraging that a backward step
was taken in the selection of a man
like Senator Martin for leader of
the Democratic minority in the Sen
ate, but that can be overcome if the
rank and file stands true.
Making No Mistakes.
The Democrats control for the
first time in sixteen years the lower
house of Congress, and so far they
have acted most wisely In all they
have done. Grit says they have an
opportunity that has seldom fallen to
the opposition party, and they appear
to have decided to make the most of
it. This decision is evidenced first
in the careful orgar.ization of the
House committees. It is noteworthy
that the press irrespective of parti
sanship, commends the Democratic
organization of the House commit
There is further evidence in the de
liberations of the Democratic House
caucus. To the caucus there was
submitted a legislative program
which had been so carefully studied
that it met with no opposition. This
program embraces legislation provid
ing for the election of United States
senators by the vote of the people;
compelling publicity of campaign con
tributions before and aii?<* election;
favoring Canadian reciprocity; gen
eral tariff revision ;ind other meas
ures affecting the revenues of the
government; reap portioning the
House to conform to the Thirteenth
census; authorizing Investigation of
the Executive departments; admit
ting the territories of Arizona and
New Mexico; and providing fo" de
ficiencies in appropriations of the last
But, perhaps, the decision 's best
indicated by the harmony that ex
ists throughout the Democratic party
in Congress. As is well known the
party has been seriously divided, the
conservatives and the radicals pull
ing apart on many important matters.
Even these factions have been sub
divided, one element being conepiou
ous for its activity in the promotion
of measures for the benefit of special
interests. This element, it will be re
membered, practically elected Joe
Cannon speaker of the last Congress.
Yet differences appear now to have
been harmonized, chasms bridged,
and the conclusion reached that coun
try is greater than party, and party
greater than faction; and that if
country be served by party, there
must be harmony within its ranks.
The caucus was a love feast.
The Lorimer Case Again.
There are reason; to justify, if not
to expect, a reopening of the notor
ious Lorimer case by the United
States senate. The past week has
brought to light fresh evidence which
if sustained, proves decisively that a
bribery fund of one hundred thous
and dollars was contributed and was
used in the election of Lorimer Oy
the Illinois legislature. Such is the
sworn testimony of Mr. Clarence S.
Funk, who declares that he himself
was approached for a contribution of
ten thousand dollars. His informa
tion in this matter has every appear
ance of being not simply general and
suggestive but specific and conclu
The Atlanta Jot:rnal says it is to
be regretted that this testimony was
not volunteered months ago when
the senate was in the midst of l:s
investigation. it would probably
hare forced the blindest partisans
and sticklers to a sense of their duty,
and would have closed the loopholes
of technicality to which Lorimer's
acquittal seems to have been due.
Regardless of this, however, the Sta
ate can scarcely afford even at this
late hour, to shut its eyes to evidence
which it did not formerly possess and
which throws new light on this im
The country was sorely dissatis
fied over the Lorimer verdict, fhe
people felt that their highest legisla
tive body has passed its action on
purely technical rather than moral
standards. And they believed tnai
the majority in the senate had there
by greatly weakened the ethical tone
of that body and, indeed, had cast
a blot upon the nation's name. In
its own behalf, therefore, as well as
in behalf of good government, the
senate would do well to reopen this
case, which in the popular mind is
as vexed today as it was before the
first and seemingly farcial investiga

HERBERT L. GAMBATI,
THE IDEAL TEACHER.
Paper Read at Teachers Meeting by
Miss Minnie Walsh.
The following paper was read by
Miss Minnie Walsh at the recent
county teacher's meeting held in this
city. It was moved and passed that
it be published:
The ideal teacher greets her pu
pils at all times with cheerfulness.
She does not allow the daily drill
to become monotonous, and she takes
a few minutes each day or at 1ojs(;
once a week for stories and recita
tions of the most interesting kind.
She will make it suit to spend some
time out of doors showing the chil
dren how to observe nature.
She makes her teaching < ffective
for she makes it accord witu her ev
ery day life at home and abroad.
She uses no deceit, no hypocrisy,
[but teaches her life exemplified in her
make up and merely imparts herself
to the pupils.
The teacher who has the great gift
of teaching and the power of inspira
tion to cause each pupil to become
noble and have higher and greater
ideas is one of the rarest specimens
j that can be found.
The teacher who is best suited to
teach has all things round about
clean and in order knowing that
cleanliness is akin to godliness. Per
sonality, for a teacher, counts mora
I believe, than any other attribu*e..
Whatever she does for her pupils,
whether by example or precept,
whether it is to enlarge their under
standing or to elevate and strengthen
their purposes. Do not forget the
crowning grace of the ideal and suc
cessful teacher is sympathy. There
is a bond between the teacher and
pupils by means of which her influ
ence may be felt and without which
the best results cannot be realized.
OLD TOIES DOWN SOUTH.
Augusta Chronicle's Comments A?'<\
Orangeburg should turn out en
masse to hear Polk Miller and his
quartette next Monday night. Heie
is what the Augusta Chronicle says
ot them: "Mr. Polk Miller's enter
tainment at Miller Walker Hall last
night was a revelation even to South
ern ears who have known from child
hood the exquisite harmony of ante
bellum negroes' minstrelsy and folk
songs. In his quartette of negro
singers, Mr. Miller has a medium for
presenting old time plantation music
probably superior to any other be
cause the betrayal is true to life and
because the ability of the four men
is phenomenal. The quartette is a
marvel. Of course Mr. Miller is al
ways himself a gifted Southern gen
tleman whose position in the world of
Southern melody is like that of
Thomas Nelson Page and Joel Chand
ler Harris in Southern literature.
His banjo playing has the true plan
tation swing and his jokes and talos
are ever new. His singing is charac
teristic and sympathetic."
The extent to which the railways of
the Southeastern States are aiding in
the material development of this sec
tion may not be generally understood.
Some interesting light is thrown upon
this by the report of the Southern
Railway Company to the interstate
Commerce Commission for the year
ended June 30, 1910, which shows
that that Company expended for the
work of its land and industrial de
partment in co-operation with com
munities, commercial organization
and individuals along its lines a total
of $59,451, being more than the
amount expended by any one of the
principal railway companies of the
United States for this purpose, with a
Since the end of the last fiscal
I year, the period covered by the above
statistics, the Southern Railway Com
pany has considerably enlarged the
work of its land and industrial de
partment and has supplemented it by
the organization of a Cotton Culture
Department, devoted exclusively to
co-operating with the United State
Agricultural Department and the ag
ricultural commissioners of the States
in efforts to bring about a larger
average yield of cotton per acre and
to advise the farmers as to the best
methods of growing cotton in spite
of the Mexican cotton boll weevil in
! alities where that insect is present.
In addition to this, stops are now
being taken still further to enlarge
the co-operative development work of
the company and increase its effic
