Woodrow Wilson says the next

he has a pretty good idea who the
democratic president will be, too. It

There is at least one honest man in

The Greenville Daily Piedmont says
the Editor of .the Greensboro News
wears cotton sox. He is to be con

<A\\ the trust busting decisions re
cently made by the United State Su

fact, they rather help the trusts by
pointing out to them how to reorgan

the trusts no little.
Orangeburg is too busy trying to
advance her own material interests
to have time to be envious of St.
Matthews or any other place, and
why the Calhoun Advance should
make such a charge we don't know.
If it has any proof to sustain its
charge it ought to publish it.

Finds Another Mare's Nest.
The Calhoun Advance has discov
ered another mare'?; nest. In its last
issue it says:
The announcement through the
news dispatches from Elloree, that
in the event the proposed railroad
line materializes there is strong
reasons to believe that Elloree
would be glad to annex to Cal
houn, has the elfect of a bomb
shell in camp at O 'angeburg. The
Times and Democrat has already
commenced to kick, and is trying
to show Elloree that they should
wait on the Clin<:hfield and Ohio
scheme, that may never material
ize. But in case it should it will
pass through St. Matthews, so this
should not worry our Elloree
friends, as either of the roads men
tioned will, connect them with St.
Matthews. Our Orangeburg friends
should not be so envious of Cal
houn's county seat.
The Advance seems to have a most
vivid imagination, as it sees spooks
ard many other things that never ex
isted. So far as Elloree wanting to
annex itself to Calhoun County is
concerned, we are perfectly willing
if it meets the wishes of the good
people of that section. If they are
that way inclined, he only suggestion
we have to make to them is that they
annex after the present Calhoun
County votes tha^. thirty thousand
dollars in bondsi that the Advance is
advocating to build the courthouse
and jail, so as they will escape pay
ing the inter?3" and principal of the
debt ihus created.
The charge that "The Times and
Democrat has 8lr"?dy commenced to
kick", is a pure imbrication on the
I art' of the Advance, and we chal
lenge it to prove its statement by
anything that Thi< Times and Demo
crat has ever published. Neither has
The Times and Democrat tried to
"show Elloree that they should wait
on the Cllnchfleld and Ohio scheme,"
as the Advance charges. The Times
and Democrat fever said a word
about Elloree waiting, and we chal
lenge the Advance to produce any
thing from our columns to prove its
fWhat we did 'my was that "we
believe that some of these days the
Seaboard Airline Railroad will build
into Charleston from Columbia, and
it is very likely that it will pass by
Elloree, Holly Hill iand. other towns
in that section. These towns should
keep their eyes open for this exten
sion when it is made. It would be
worth more to thsrn than a road to
Swansea, rifa St Matthews, 83 It
would put them on a through line
between. Charleston and Columbia,
and that18 woat ^ey need." It will
be noticed that wa did not say "wait"
once, nor did we. refer- to the- Clinch
field and Ohio scheme," whatever
!We referred to the Seaboard Air
line Railroad as we have heard that
they have looker over a line from
Columbia to Charleston, running be
tween the Southern and the A. C. L.
Railway on this side of the Santee
River. We never said a word about
any road from St. Matthews and
Swansea, except that a direct road
from Columbia to Charleston would
be worth more to Elloree than it.
We don't think the Advance even
would deny this.
"Our Orangeburg friends should
not-be so envious of Calhoun's coun
ty seat," concludes our spook-seeing
contemporary. ?? there is any envy
of St. "Matthews on the part of the
people of Oran:?eburg we are not
aware of it. We know that there Is
none on the part of The Times and
Democrat, which is amply proven by
,the many complimentary notices that
appear in its columns about St Mat
thews and her good people. Hun
dreds of subscribers at St. Matthews
and other parts of Calhoun County
will testify to the many good things
'that* we say of Oa?roun County and
its .hustling county seat.
We have been pleased on more oc
casions that one that have brought
St. Matthews and Orangeburg folks
together to 3ee the cordial relations
that now exist between them. The
only discordant note that ever grates
on the ear to disturb the cordial feel
ing and harmony that now exists be
tween the two counties is the doleful
croaking of the Calhoun Advance, as
evidenced by the article from Its
columns which we publish above.
Like the Bourbons of old, the Cal
houn Advance forgets little and
learns nothing. That is why It can't
keep up with the procession of good
will and esteem that now exists be
tween the people of Orangeburg and
The School Book Row.
Immediately upon the adoption of
the text-books for use in the schools
of South Carolina by the State Board
of Education complaints were made
about the manr ir in which awards
were made. Mos t of these complaints
came from men who were interested
in books that wore not adopted and
from the State Superintendent of
Education Sweanngen. who is a mem
ber of the board that adopted the
books. Great s'.ress is laii on the
fact that many of the books used for
the past five years have been left off
the list, and others put in their place.
It is claimed that Jthls will cause
great financial loss to the people
While it will cost the people some
thing to make the change of books,
we do not belli ve that the amount
will be very great, for the reason
that all the old books are redeemable
at one-half the cost of the new ones.
'Many of the old books are worthless
now?from long usage, but they are
redeemable for one-half the price of
any new book that is bought to take
its place. While it may cost some
cash money to make the change in
books, the peopl-? will have the worth
of money thus spent in the increased
value of new books over old ones.
This is the way it looks to us.
From a sanitary point of view it
is a good thing to have a change of
books once in r while. Old books,
it Is said, harbor many a disease
germ and many children have lost
their lives from sickness contracted
by handling them. So after all, the
change of books might prove a great
I blessing in the way of health, even if
it does cost a little cash money to
I get new books for old ones. The
proper thing for the people to do is
to see to it that all the old books
they have on hand are brought in
and exchanged for new ones when
the proper time comes for them to
If it was intended as Mr. Swearin
gen seems to think it was, that one
book adoption should last ten years,
why did the Legislature pass a law
requiring a new adoption every five
years? Much better terms could
have been made with the publishers
of school books on a ten year con
tract than on a five year one, yet
the Legislature made the contract to
run for only five years, evidently in
tending that the State Board of Edu
cation should use their discretion at
'be end of each five years as to what
changes should be made in the list
of text books to be used in the com
mon schools of South Carolina.

popular, and the king did not seem to

Sennacherib the Conqueror
The King of Assyria, with a large
army, took the held. Knowing the
difficulties of a siege of Jerusalem, he I
did not begin with It, but passed down
the Mediterranean coast, overthrowing
the Sidoniaus and Philistines, to Jop

Judah. The whole country was filled
with fear, as nearly forty cities of
Judah. one after the other, fell. King

and sent ambassadors to King Sen

The penalty was a heavy one,

larger sum than it would be today.

prophecy that the King of Assyria
should not come Into too city nor. shoot

Doubtless the prophecy seemed strange
to the people. By what miracle this
could be accomplished they could not

Ho plants His footsteps In the aea,

Isaiah briefly and poetically declares
that the angel of the Lord smote the
camp of the Assyrians, without ex
plaining in what manner. We remem
ber the statement of the Scriptures
that wind and fire nnd lightning may
be the Lord's messengers or "angels."
Quite probably, in this instance, the
messenger of death may have been a
malignant form of fever said to pre
vail at times to the northeast of
Egypt; but It matters not to us what
messenger the Lord used to turn back
the Assyrian hosts.
The lesson for us is to note the Di
vine power which overrules, orders
and directs, so that all things shall
work together in harmony with Ells

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 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 bargains. 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.
