The way in which this nation has
been waste fully using up Its natur
al resource 5 is much on a par with
the action of a business man who
steadily mi kes inroads on his capital.
Such a co irse persevered in either

ional gove mment and the several
states hav( at last awakened to that
fact and ai 3 learning to conserve the
water, coa*. timber and other valua

is not poss ble to make good the evil

Figuring on the Election.
^Although the presidential election
is over a year off, newspap/.rs are al
ready beginning to figure on the
probable outcome of the contest.
With New Mexico and Arizona ad
mitted into the Union, there will be,
with the additional members pro
vided for dn the Reappctionment
bill, five hundred and ?hlrty-one
votes in the next Electoral College
an increase of forty-eight. The ma
jority required to elect the President
next year will be two hundred and
sixty-six, as compared with two hun
dred and forty-two in the last elec
tion Mr. Taft had an electoral vote
of three hundred and twenty-one.
With the same States under the Re
apportionment the Republicans
would gain thirty-two, and those
States that voted for Mr. Bryan
would gain ten. The Taft States by
vote would be:
California. .. 13
Ohio. . .23
South Dakota. . . 5
The Bryan States wou'd give the
following Democratic vote:
Nevada . 3
In the new Electoral College New|
York with six additional votes, a to
tal of forty-two, will continue to
hold the balance of pow;r between
the leading parties dn campaigns
less hopelessly one-sided than the
last. With New York's vote eith
|er side may easily figure out a ma-1
jority. Under the reapportionment
the solid South has one hundred and
fifty five votes..
To win the next Democratic candi
date must have in addition to thej
South one hundred and eleven votes.
If he carried New York, Ohio, New I
Jersey, Indianna and Missouri he)
would win with one vote to spare.
Illinois could be subvtited for
Ohio. In place of either of these
States the Democrats could elect
with California, Colorado and West
Virginia, or California and Nebras
ka and Montana or either of the Da
kotas. Counting New Mexico and
Arizona Democratic, with three
votes each, a successful c mhination
could be named with''new York,
New Jersey, Indianna, Missouri, Ne
braska, West Virginia and Colorado.
I (Montana with one of the Dakotas
could take the place of any of the|
three small States.
Which of the gentleman named
as the probable Democratic candi
date is the most likely to success
fully work the combination and
land dn the White House ' The one
that has the best chance of doing
this, is our candidate, be he Wilson,
Clark, Harmon, Marshall, Under-j
wood or some other good Democrat.
It looks to us as if the Democrats
can win if they will push the tariff
question to the front. With thej
tariff as the main issue President
Taft, who is sure of renomination |
by the Republicans would be at a
disadvantage for having vetoed the
efforts of the Democrats to give the
people cheaper clothing and other
necessaries of life. In our judg
ment the only thing the.", could de
feat the Democrats would be a huge
corruption fund in the hands of the
Republicans. The Democrats should
guard against this danger.
Give Bryan Fair liay
Referring! to Mr. Bryan's com
ment on Congressman Underwood's
position on the iron schedule, as
charged by a special dispatch to The
Philadelphia Inquirer, the Omaha
Daily Bee, a dyed-in-the-wool stand
pat Republican paper says: "the Re
publicans owe Mr. Bryau a vote of
thanks for this full and fair expos
ure of the perfidy of his party. It
should help the people in 1912 when
they come to decide whether they
want that party installec1 more fully
The News and Courier copies what
the Bee says above and mak?e tlx
following comment on iz: "Repub
lican journals, all over the country
are gloating over the Xebraskan';
persistent endeavors to discount tht
work which the party to which Ik
professes allegiance, is doing at
Washington. They look upon Mr
Bryan and not Col. Roosevelt, at
their best asset and strongest ally.''
It is iperfectfy natural) for the
Omaha Bee to slander Mr. Bryan
but Democratic papers like the Newf
ard Courier should not follow the
Uee's bad example. Bryan made nc
charge against Underwood. He sim
ply commented on the charges madf
in a reputable newspaper against
Underwood ten days after they
' were made, and which Underwood
I had not denied up to the time Bryan
! commented on them. As soon as
i Underwood denied them, Bryan with
I newspapers llWeetaoinJfhrdljucmwyfp
idrew his comments. Republican pa
Ipers can slander Bryan if they will,
i but Democratic newspapers should
at least give him fair play.
Awful Effect of Alconoi.
One of the greatest curses to the
human race ds the excessive use of
alcohol. The States Oharity Asso
ciation of New York has published a
tract on the "Extent, Causes and
Prevention of Insanity", in which it
says that "fully thirty per cent of
the men and ten per cent of the wo
men duly admitted to the state hos
pitals are suffering from conditions
due directly or indirectly to alcohol.
So marked is the effect of alcohol
upon the brain and the nerve tissue
that it helps to bring about a num
ber of mental breakdowns, in addi
tltioD to the alcoholic insanities. Al
cohol ds a poison." What gives the
statement added importance is that
the association is not a temperance
society nor its publication temper
ance tracts. The Association deals
with scientific facts and not with
theories. Therefore, what it says
on the subject of the fearful effects
of alcohol must be accepted as au
thoritative. In the face of such in
formation as that given above it is
strange that men and women should
persist in the excessive use of strong
drink. That so many men and wo
men fall a prey to alcoholism is a
sad commentary on out boasted civ
ilization. It is a notorious fact that
more alcohol is used in civilized
countries than in those classed as

DESTROYING GOD'S WORD
Jeremiah 36?Aug. 13
'The Word of our God shall stand forever."
i?BHE Prophet Jererulnh was shut
A up in prison. The disaster
upon the kingdom had, to some
extent, awakened the people to
a slight repentance In which the king
Joined, yet It was a repentance of fear
! rather than heart repentance. The
king had enmity against Jeremiah be
cause the Divine message came through
him. He seems to have hoped to re
strain the Prophet from further proe
lamation of the coming trouble through
fear. However, the Lord directed the
Prophet to write out ail of his prophe
cies on a scroll, after the ancient style.
In columns. Jeremiah dictated and
Baruch served him as amanuensis.
By the Lord's direction this book of
Jeremiah was to be read to all the peo
ple, in the temple,
on the occasion of
a general gather
ing for worship
Since the Prophet
j himself could not
go, he directed
Baruch, who took
the scroll and
read it in the
hearing of the
people. Its proph
ecies of dire dis
aster iuade a deep
Impression. One of the princes of the
people was present and heard the read
ing and reported to others of the king's
counsellors. They sent for Barm h and
had him read it before them all. They
also, wero deeply impressed and con
cluded that it should be brought before
the king. But meantime Baruch and
Jeremiah were hidden, the probabili
ty of the king's displeasure being great.
Hearing of the manuscript, the king
was anxious to have it read before him
by a scribe. During the reading, as
two or three columns of the manu
script were road, the king cut them off
with a pen knife and threw them into
the fire?until the entire manuscript
was heard and destroyed. By the
Lord's direction Jeremiah dictated his
prophecies afresh, Baruch again act
ing as amanuensis; and this edition
was made still more complete than the
former. Amongst other things it in
cluded the Divine edict that none of
Jeholakim's posterity should ever sit
upon the throne of David.
God's Word Indestructible
Thomas Paine. Voltaire and Inger
soll imagined that they had made the
Word of God to appear so ridiculous
that it would nevermore have influence
amongst men. Robert Ingersoll is quot
ed as having suid, "In ten years the
Bible will not be read." How little
the poor man knew on the subject
The frontispiece of a well known
Wycliffe Bible pictures Satan and oth
ers, religious and irreligious, blowing
with all their might to put out a light.
In proportion ns their energy and
strength became exhausted, the light
grew stronger and burned the more
brightly. This illustrates the futility of
all attempts to quench the Word of God.

when any one would attempt to destroy
the Bible, we

The Scriptures from first to last give
us to understand that God's Word is
to shine more and more brightly down
to the very end of this Gospel Age.
St. Peter declares it to be "the more

do well that we take need, as to n
light shining in a dark place until tho
Day dawn and the Day Star arise in
your hearts" (II Fetor 1, 10).
The Bishop of London opposed the
Tyndale translation because the prac
tices of the time were not in harmony
with the Scriptures. Similarly, today,
there are doctrines, traditions, creeds
from the Dark Ages still reverenced,
and which ft better understanding of
the Bible would correct and put to
shame. Hence the opposition to the
better understanding of God's Word.
Nevertheless, the Word of God shall
stand forever, and the spirit of the
truth shall make free all the children
of the truth.

The City of Orangeburg.
Orangeburg, the county seat of Orangeburg County,
it- situated on the Edisto River in the very heart of the
rich cotton belt, about 75 miles from the coast. The
1910 census shows that Orangeburg is the fourth cotton
county of South Carolina and one of the leading counties
of the South. Statistics show Orangeburg county to be
second in the United States in the number of individual
farms and it has stood second in the number of bales of
cotton produced annually. The soil, however, is suited
for a variety of crops other than cotton and diversified
farming is very extensively practiced in this section.
Orangeburg is in the centre of the county with a pop
ulation of 6,000, according to the 1910 census. This figure,
however, does not include the suburbs and residents living
beyond the one mile city limit, neither does it include 1,500
Orangeburg is the supply centre for a population of at
least 100,000, who trade here regularly because of its
superior advantages. Her business men are wide-awake,
active, energetic and progressive, and the Chamber of
Commerce urges business enterprises and manufacturing
interests to investigate our advantages when seeking loca

Orangeburg is on the main line of the Atlantic Coast
Line Railroad and on the Charleston-Asheville Division
of the Southern. There is now being constructed through
local enterprise a railroad from Orangeburg to the Sea
board, seventeen miles distant. When this is completed,
the city will enjoy the advantages of the three big Southern
Systems. Another connecting railroad is being projected.
The city has a healthful climate, artesian water, an
appropriation for a $60,000 Government building, an ap
propriation for a survey of the Edisto River with a view
of making it navigable.. Orangeburg owns it water works,
sewerage system, Electric light plant, fire alarm system,
and equipment for four efficient fire companies. Her pub
lic schools arc the best and she has ten churches within
her limits. The city has free mail delivery and there are
nine rural routes reaching out in various directions. Or
angeburg has the best hotel accomodations in the State.
Business enterprises investing $5,000 or more, are ex
empted from taxation for a period of five years.
Millions of feet of timber are in the section around
Orangeburg, awaiting the opening of the Edisto for nav
igation to be marketed.
