people had only done their duty and

Whenever a man finds pleasure In
his work or his business, the success
of that business is assured. Mr. A. L.
Baggott. a large business man of New

always made his business the great

business a bore or found more pleas

Henry Watterson is very much
concerned about what Bryan is go
ing to do politically. He begs him
as a friend and fellow democrat to
stay hands off. "For Heaven's sae,"
he says, "don't wreck the old ship In
port as was done before." We have
no doubt but that Bryan will do what
is' asked of him, but the request
would come in better grace if Henry
IWattemon had never helped to
"wreck :he old ship in port" as he
did in 1896 and 1900.
The morbid crowds, crazy for ex-]
cliement and accidents, that crowd
the usual speed auto meets reminds
one of the crowds that thronged the
Coliseum in ancient Rome to witness
gladiatorial fights. There is the
same callousness for human life, the
same c.emand for danger and sensa
tional, und the same disappointment
if no cr.e Is killed. Very nearly the
only thing wanting to complete the
analogy is "thumbs down'' and even
that i? present in spirit. In truth
thb Bpeed races do not present true
eport. but only dangerous "thrillers"
designed to draw and please a sensa
tion loving crowd. i
Many of the leading newspapers of
the country are losing faith in the
pretentious of the so-called progres
sive Republicans^ and well they
might. The New York World says
"Northwestern Republicans who rage
at Canadian reciprocity as injurious
to farmers and threaten in revenge
to pull down the tariff temple do not
exhibit themselves in an admirable
light. They have been demanding
tariff reform for more than a gen
eration. They have known from the
beginning that agriculture was the
victim and not the beneficiary of cus
tom-house taxation. Yet when the
test has come they have voted more
solidly for privilege than Wall street
This is a pretty severe indictment,
but we are sorry to say the facts bear
it out. The World goes on to say
that, "if the representatives of these
people in the United States Senate
mean what they say, they will soon
find an opportunity to do something
worth while. They will not be asked
to destroy temples 01 demolish cus
tom-houses, but to consider soberly
the bill which passed the Democratic
House recently reducing) taxes upon
wool and woolens. Will they follow
the few courageous Republicans in
that body who have blazed the way
for them, or will they as usual hold
This measure is aimed at what ex
Senator Aldrich called the very cita
del of the tariff. It corrects sched
ules which Mr. Taft refers to as in
defensible. It is a redemption by the
Democrats of promises made to the
people in the campaign of 1908 by
victorious Republicans. It is a per
fectly reasonable attempt to reduce
the cost of living. Therefore 'the
Progressive Republicans, if they want
to help reform the tariff, should
stand shoulder to shoulder with the
honest Democrats and push this
measure through- the Senate. The
question is will they do it. Time alone
As the World says there would
have been no insurgent Republicans
in the Senate to-day if they had not
convinced the people of the North
west of their hostility to trusts.
Canadian reciprocity deprives the
Lumber and Paper Trusts of some of
their, plunder, and the proposed new
wool tariff takes the extortion out of
the trust taxe:3 on clothing, blankets
and carpets. Why not begin he-??
Unless the so-called Progressive Re
publicans of the West unite In sup
port of such reforms, wherein do they
differ from the gilded old iguard and
the crusted stand-patters?
The situation is one that calls for
action rather than menace; for con
structive legislation rather than re
venge and dlstruction. Honorable
.^en in both parties who have never
paraded their progresslveness are
co-operating in behalf of wider mark
ets, lower taxes and the.control of
trusts. In this laudable effort the
most vehement opposition that has
yet been encountered has appeared,
we are sorry to say, in the ranks of
the ostentatious progressives of the
Northwestern Republicanism has
done little but bluster and threaten
on the tariff puestion for forty years.
No matter how much it protested, it
has meekly accepted what the Kel
leys, McKinleys, Dingleys, Aldriches
and Paynes imposed upon it. Most
of its spokesmen in the Senate, noisi
ly pretendnig to be somethinigi else,
are in fact truly representative of
this spirit of submission, not to say
subserviency. They are mighty in
threats but they do Dot vote against
Elected as reformers, the boastful
progressives are breeding panics
among those who are conscientiously
promoting reform. Sworn foes of
monopoly, the trusts now find in them
their greatest aid and comfort." This
Is all true, and because It Is true we
we have lost all faith in the so-call
ed Progressive Republicans. Most of
them are mere bluffers, and nothing
Promoting the Tovms Welfare.
Not unoften small cities like Or
angeburg start organizations to
which is given the titles of "Cham
ber of Commerce," "Board of Trade,"
or others equally pretentious. The
motive for such organizations is good
but after a fitful and brief career the
organization dies out with nothing ac
complished. As a rule, the failure is
due to attempting too much, or in
not having clearly defined methods
of operation. Naturally when ex
pectations are not realized, or when
nothing definite is attempted dis
couragement results and the whole
thing fizzles out inglorlously.
And yet there Is not a town but
oa_i be bettered by wise organized co
operation on the part of its citizens.
This has been proven right here in
this city. What Is needed first of all
is a spirit of union. If faction feel
ing shows itself, failure is certain,
for whatever project one faction pro
poses is sure to be opposed by the
other faction, not on Its merits but
out of sheer contrariness. We are
glad that no such spirit exists here.
If we want to succeed with the Coun
ty Fair we must all pull together.
Then, common sense Is Imperative.
For a town of five or six thousand to
attempt what Is possible only for a ci
ty of thirty thousand Is much the
same, and as foolish, as a family on
an Income of $1,500 trying to live
like the family that has an income of
?5,009. Common sense will dictate
moderation of desire and reasonable
ness in effort. One great need is as
to industries, to find out what ad
vantages a community may possess
certain lines of business and then to
work energetically and sensibly to

Is always much that ctNn be done by
earnest-minded and intelligent men
and women working harmoniously
together in the spirit of loyalty and
local pride. In fact it should be the
aim of every citizen to make the com
munity a better place in which to

found the maximum of comfort, con

It will pay ycu 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 J;ine 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 and marvels of architectural and tonal beauty and
were eagerly sought by dealers.
Mr. D. H. Marchant, head of this 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 bargain?. 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, and we are proud to show them. Let us demonstrate
the Inner-Player for you.
