only mevcly a coincidence that Mr.
Bryan comes Into this State just after
Wioodrow Wilson had developed so
much interest and enthusiasm as a
presidential possibility?" So far as
Bryan's' visit to this section of the
State is concerned, we answer yes.
The engagement for the visit was
made long before It was ever known

ly say that if we were a resident of
Calhouii County we would favor the
issue oi county bonds to the amount
of at least twenty or thirty thousand
- dollars t o supplement the amount
raised oy St. Matthews for the erec
tion of a courthouse and jail. It will
be mor.ey saved in the long run.
How rapidly we move in these
days! Only three years ago when
Mr. Bryan got back from Europe, In
the speeches preliminary to the cam
paign he made for the Democ- tic
nomination, he played up the initia
tive and referendum. He did not
venture the recall. Strlghtway Har
per's Weekly pictured him holding
up two wierd rag babies and beneath
the legend: "The sawdust twins."
This same paper is now ardently sup
porting Dr. Woodrow Wilson, who
goes about the country doing just
what Bryan did.
Baptists from all parts of the
world are in session at the Baptist
World's Alliance in Philadelphia.
The Rev. Cortland Myers, of Boston,
who spoke at the afternoon services
in the Temple, warned his hearers
against abstract theologies and the
so-called higher critcism. He de
clared :hat there are Baptist minis
ters filling pulpits and offices in the
church who are not sure of their
belief in the Divinity of Christ. "They
are as unorthodox as the devil," de
clared Dr. Myers. Like wolves in
sheep's clothing, they are made up
of BaoUst wool and Unitarian hair.
They are hypocrites who are in the
church through a foul trick and
should be sent where they belong."
"Who made him a judge? ?
Bryan and'the Party.
It is surprising how some really
sensible people -allow themselves to
be led around by the nuae. They
believe any misrepresentations they
may see in the newspapers about a
man like Bryan for instance. We
had a map to say to us the other
day that he was sorry to see that
HrT B*ryatf"Wffs~determined~to kill
the Democratic party by trying to
dictate to the members of Congress
as to what they shall or shall not
do about this.br that measure. This
is a mistake; Mr. Bryan haB never
?attempted to dictate to the Dem??
cratic party and has no desire to do
so, but as a member of the Demo
cratic party Mt. Bryan has exercised
the right to express an opinion upon
public questions -and '.upon public
men, and' this right he says he ex
pects to continue to exercise.
He further says he will not be
deterred from discharging what he
regards as a sacred duty by abuse,
but he is accustomed to abuse. His
body, politically speaking, is scarred
sAl over by the knives that have been
wielded by the repre sentatives of
plutocracy inside of the Democratic
party and outside. He has made
three campaigns and in every one of
them he has had to meet treachery
within the party as well as assailed
from without. He has had to con
duct his campaigns through commit
teemen, some of whom were in league
with the opposition and In secret cor
respondence with the enemy.
He has had to meet false and ma
licious misrepresentation on the part
of papers subsidized by the preda
tory interests. He has seen the par
ty platform attacked, sometimes op
enly and sometimes by innuendo, by
those pretending to support the tick
et, and he has seen the platform re\
pudiated immediately after the elec
tion by papers who professed to sup
port it during the campaign. He has
had to oppose distinguished members
of his own party when those members
attempted to insert weasel words in
the platform and make it ambiguous
and uncertain. He has had to con
tend with timid politicians who pro
fessed friendship only out of fear of
their constituents and only so long
as that pretended friendship would
help them. I
But he has found the heart of the
party sound . He has found the rank
and file of the party true. To this
multitude of Democrats, uncorrupted
and undefiled, he owes whatever
strength he has. He expects differ
ences of opinion even among friends,
and he knows that honest differences
of opinion do not keep men from
acting together when they agree in
purpose, but he knows that people
who differ in purpose can not be ex
pected to agree on plans.
In other words, Mr. (Bryan is a
citizen of the United States, and ex
pects to live up to the responsibilities
of a citizen as best he can, He is
a member of the Democratic party,
and he expects to live up to the
responsibilities of the position. The
fact that he has been the party's
candidate does not deprive him of the
freedom to think and to speak. On
the contrary, his repsonslbility is the
greater because of the confidence re
posed in him. He asks no favors,
and he will show no favors to those
who are identified with those who are
engaged In exploiting the masses.
Birds and Boll Weevil.
There is much good sense in the
talk of Mr. James Henry Rice, Jr.,
state game warden of South Caro
lina and connected with the scientific
side of the federal department of
agriculture, respecting the benefit of
birds In holding in check the boll
weevil. He points out that in the
course of two or three years at most
the boll weevil will be spreading over
this section of the cotton belt, and
that insect-eating birds are the ene
mies of the weevil. Hence, every ef
fort should be made to protect the
birds. Sportsmen have been so ac
tive in recent years that Georgia,
South Carolina and North Carolina
are being fast deprived of their ln?
As the Savannah News says It
would be a monumental task to keep
gunners from killing insect-eating
birds. Laws might be made for the
protection of such birds and strenu
ous efforts made for their enforce
ment, and yet the killing would go
on, unless every farmer should be
come detectives and inform on every
one who violated the laws. It is cer
tainly of vastly more importance that
the insect-eating birds should be pro
tected and become a force in fighting
the boll weevil than that sportsmen
should be permitted to slaughter
them at will.
If the farmers could be fmpressed
with the importance of protecting this
class of birds they would undoubted
ly become extremely active in pro
tecting them, but if the sole depend-1
ence were upon a state game warden J
and a few deputies it Is doubtful if
much could be accomplished. The
matter is of sufficient importance,
to be called to~the attention ot the
Legislature with the view of securing
further legislation as is needed, and
of arousing a public sentiment In be
half of protecting insect-eating birds
that would make every farmer, and
in fact every one else, an active agent
in the enforcement of the law.
Mr. Rice points out that, owing to
c'imatic conditions on the Atlantic
coast, we may expect to have more
difficulty in dealing with the boll
weevil than Texas has. Hence every
known means of fighting the insect
should be adopted. There will be a
good many propositions, no doubt, for
fighting the boll weevil as the time,
approaches for the pest to reach this
section, but Mr. Rice is right in his
conclusions as to the value of in
sect-eating birds, in keeping down
the weevil the people couldn't do a
wiser thing than to do all that it
is possible to do for the greater pro
tection of birds of that kind.

jury said "the time has come when

We Want Each One of the Several Thousand Readers of
This Paper Carefully to Read What Follows.
It will pay you to do so. THE MARCHANT MUSIC CO. offers to the people of this
section a rare opportunity to secure a high grade piano at a low price, and we want you to
understand just why we can afford to do so at this particular time. The explanation is simple.
From June 3rd to 10th, there was held in Chicago the greatest Piano Exposition ever held
in the world. President Taft opened the show and over 1000 pianos especially manufactured
for the occasion were on exhibition. Every piano expert, manufacturer, and dealer of any
note in both the United States and Canada were present to inspect these exposition instruments.
Naturally, the pianos exhibited were the best products of the various factories, because all the
marvelous skill of the master piano builders of the world were concentrated on the pianos shown
at this exposition. These exposition pianos are marvels of agricultural and tonal beauty and
were eagerly sought by dealers.
Mr. D. H. Marchant, head ofjhis company was in attendance upon this exposition, and
being an expert himself and being right on the ground, was enabled to secure some extraor
dinary bargaips. Twenty-five of these splendid pianos were bought by him and are now daily
arriving at our warerooms. Because they were bought at reduced figures, we sell them at low
figures, either cash or on time. The reasonable terms which the public has enjoyed in the past,
we now offer on these exposition pianos.
If you want to see the highest expression of the piano-maker's art which has ever been
brought to South Carolina, call and inspect these magnificient instruments for your-self. If you
want a specially made piano at a low figure, this is your opportunity.
The following world leaders are represented: KNABE. KRANICH & BACK, BUSH &
LANE, HAINES BROS., KRAKAUER, LAUTER, WESER BROS., LUDWIG, TONK,
FOSTER, POOLE, JOHNSON and the Columbus Piano Co's. famous little "BOUDOIR".
Several Player pianos are among the lot at figures which must compel attention. The Player
piano is undoubtedly the piano of the future. Call to see these artistic pianos whether you want
to buy or not. They are worth seeing, an.i ve are proud to show them. Let us demonstrate
the Inner-Player for you.
