Mr. L. D. Boone, of Rowesvllle, is a
member oi the graduating class at
Clemson this year.
That is a spurious gentility that
loves to disport itself in broadcloth,
but which is ashamed to be seen u
fustian and overalls.
Graduation exercises are now most
ly over ad for a year at least all
the vexed problems of life have been
settled by the graduates.
The most beautiful thing in tnt
world is a good deed, and the most
bea-utlfui 15fe is that which is filled
v.jth good and unselfish acts.
Some people can serve their coun
try (better in prison than at liberty. To
set them free would defeat the ends
of justice and encourage crime.
To regard work as distasteful
drudgery Is a mistake All honest
work, however lowly, is enobling, up
lifting and one of the greatest of
blessings. ' i
To be convulsed with sobs and
grief when reading the pathetic story
of seme imaginary hero or heroine in
a novel, and yet in actual life to do
nothing to relieve the needs of the
poor or dry the tear of the mourner,
is nothing but vapid sentimentalism.
"Senatorial courtesy" has received
some hard jolts recently. Perhaps
that is jutifc as well, for if the cour
tesy h:s been abused in order to de
feat progressive legislation or to hin
der probinir where it was much need
ed the sooner it is ended the better.
That is a fooHsh man who, because
it is not in him to do great things,
refuses to do the little things that
are within his power. In truth, man
kind Is more blest by the every day
common things of the average man
than by the dazzling genius.or great
acts of a few Individuals.
One might be more sanguine of the
efficacy of the Supreme Court decis
ions aiTiainst the trusts if Wall street
would only take the decision more
seriously. As it Is, Wall street seems
rather to enjoy the situation. Yet,
after all, these decisions may be
bringing nearer the much, desired
The only effective way of dealing
with danclelions and bad habits Is to
kill them. Some people do nothing
but let them grow, others lop off the
tops, which results In a temporary
improvement only, but others go
down to the very roots and pull them
up. It means1 hard work but it Is
thorough, and beat of all Its brings
Political circles In Washington are
agog with the discovery that Secre
tary of the Navy, Meyer, slipped over
to Oyster Bay on Decoration day and
had a talk with farmer President
Roosevelt A rumor had it that the
cabinet officer was sent on a special
commission to sound Roosevelt on
reciprocity and gain his assistance
for the administration.
By the way almost every Congres
sional speaker quotes the Bible or
refers to it when making speeches in
the Senate or House, one almost ex
pencts to see their heads encircled
by a halo. So far as the speakers
themselves are concerned, such suota
tions may be for effect only, but it
shows the Influence of the Bible and
Its position in human thought.
T. B. Felder has fired twio broad
sides inro Gov. Blease in the laat
week. He accuses the Governor of
everything that is low, dirty and
mean, <and says he can prove every
charge he makes. If we were Gov.
Blease we would give him a chance
to do so, and if he failed, we would
make him pay dearly for his slan
derous charges. If he is innocent,
that is the only course for the Gov
ernor to pursue.
There are churches that would
stand better in public estimation and
do more effective work if they would
not let the money of rich members
cover a mulditude of sins. While
God is no respector of persons, not
unoften the church is, because it con
dones offenses by wealthy parishon
ers it would not tolerate in poor
members. A little more of the atti
dute displayed towards the rich Phar
isees by Jesus would give us a new
tone to the church and strengthen
That many thousands of babies die
every year because of impure milk !s
notorious. For this "slaughter of the
innocents" careles parents, dishonest
milk dealers and the supineness of
pure food inspectors are chiefly re
sponsible: Human nature is soms
times a strange thing. People will
weap copiously over the bible story
of the massacre of the infants in
Bethlehem who contribute by their
neglige ace or' indifference to kill
many times more children than were
found in the.old Judean village.
Advance of Democracy.
Democracy Is making more rapid
strides in England than in any other
country in the world. In fact, the
real government of England to-day,
i3 nearer and more responsive to the
will of the people &?n the govern
ment in this boasted "land of the
brave and the home of the free" is.
Step by step the demands of the peo
plefor a greater share in the govern

nobility is preserve* as a relict of

ment too pay. member* of Parliament a
salary of $2,060 a year reminds us
that time has well nigh brought
about the realization of the old Char
tist demands. In its day, some six
ty-five years ago, Chartism was re
garded as extremely revolutionary
and its leaders were branded as dan
gerous demagogues. Yet of the five
pointB of the charter?vote by ballot,
annual parliaments, no-property qual

payment for members of parliament,
and equal electoral districts?vote by
ballot and no-property qualification
have long since been granted.
Every distribution of seats haB
ibeen in the directioi. of equal elector
al districts, payment of members Is
practically assured, and the govern
ment proposes to, reduce the term
from seven years to three. In this
near realization of all the old points
one can see how political advance
ment keeps pace with the growing
powers of the people. Not only in
England, 'but in every country, there
is 'a shif ting of political power and re
sponsibilities from the few' to the
many, and all ths means a truer form
of representative government.

Where Mosquitos Breed.
If any one should take a stroll
around our little city everywhere
might be noticed the Insignificant tin
can layng aparemtly harmlessly on the
ground about the front and back
yards ready to catch the refreshing
rain as it descends from above. Once
caught that rain water becomes the
choicest of' all breeding places for
mosquitos. One o'd tin can full of
rain water will raise mosquitos
enough to make a dozen families
miserable all summer. See to it that
all these old tin eans are carted asray.
As the Charlotte Observer says the
indiscriminate scattering of worth
less tin cans in back yards and on va
cant lot is due primarily to thought
lessness but it is none the less inju
rious on that account. Recent scien
tific investigations have pretty well
established the best way to fight mos
quitos Is by eliminating their breed
log places and thi3 cannot be done as
long as house-wives allow cans to he
dumped in haphazard fashion. This
spells in the*0ong run much annoy
ance, and no little sickness both ot
which are absolutely preventable.
The cdtUen who Is really interested
in public matters should see to it
that his own premises are not Uttered
In this dangerous fashion. A good
example dn'this respect will in all
flfkelyhood prove contagious. The
collecting of the csns and tbe seeing
to it'that no more c.re thrown around
will require some little labor, but
probably not so much in the aggre
gate as a sinigile case of fever which
might come as a result of the mos
quitos thus enabled to breed. And
this view of the case is confined
solely to the sanitary aspect of the
tin can situation.
The Careers of Two Men.
The lives of men like George Wash
ington and Pazari Diaz give us a con
trast that can.be studied with interest
and profit by the students of human
events. When Washington took
leave of his army it was into honor
able retirement from which he was
again called to serve his country, first
as President of the Constituional Con
vention and then i s President of the
United States. T'laz recently bade
farewell to his army to igo Into exile
'after serving as President of Mexico
many years. ' i i
In courage, ability and service to
his country, there was something in
ctommon between Washington and
Diaz. But Washington was much
the igreater man, nobly unselfish, and
?naffected by the tower of office. Di
az might have remained honored
and loved in his native land if he had
shown the same unselfishness, but,
unfortunately, office and the power it
brings evolved a lust for arbitrary
rule which led to his downfall.
Washington could move with
events -and in all things his coun
try was first. Diaz in his latter years
was unprogressive and he put him
self before his country. One man
died full of honors and his name Is
imperishalble, while the other man,
in spite of the acknowledged good he
has done Mexico, closes his years in
defeat and exile. He is even afraid
to remain in his native country, but
seeks an asylum ;n foreign lands.
Let Us Tidy Up a Bit.
Now is the time to help realize the
dream of the "City Beautiful." It Is
something in which evary citizen can
do his part by keeping his premises
clean Tidiness and good taste are
catchlnjg and the good example one
man sets is likely to be followed by
his neighbor. 'But even if it is not he
has the reward which comes from
knowing that his own effort has con
tributed to making his town a better
place to live in. In civic and other
improvements there is sometimes a
tendency to wait upon official action
or the work of some to be appointed
committee. But perhaps best resuus
usually flow from intelligent private
action. Mo^e than one city In our
land has been transformed In exter
nal appearance .because of the good
taste, industry and enthusiasm of
some one man whose example at last
Running down one's town does not
call for any brains or ability. It is
easily done. Refuse to help any pro
ject for its advancement and criticise
those who do and question their mo
lives. Stand habitually on the street
corners and compla'n how dead the
town is. Refuse to take the local pa
pers, growl that the busines men are
slow, and send away to mail order
houses for everything1 wanted?from
a cook stove or buggy to a packet
of. needles. Such methods will kill
a town as dead as a door nail pro
vided t?i^re are enough kickers en
gaged in the disreputable business.
It is significant that when great
l-,ombiniations of capital are faced
with an investigation as to their bus
iness methods almost invariably they
exclaim that any such action will
mean a lowering of wages. That is
a club designed to provent inquiry.
As a rule dividends coald be lowered
and still mean large profits, but such
reduction no trust magnate will vol
untarily agree to do. If any reduc
tion iB imperative it is so much eas
ier to take it out of the wages. But
generally the threat is a threat and
nothing more, even if the enquiry is

This is the compliment that one

of the real method behind our bus

vain. Every new and worthy drug is

say "we are just out of it," but
we say, "We have it now."
