when the c rcuinstances are notorious

is a different matter.
Even in America one occasionally
comes across a man who regards wo
man as an inferior animal and a
sort of be ist of burden. Such was
the man i i Missouri who harnessed
his wife tc his team, and the man in
Wisconsin who brutally beat his wife
to make hi r love him. But these are
but spora lie cases. Old world and

Where Is the Proof.
Prof. W. E. Dodd, of Chicago Un
iversity, says "all over the South the
Southern Railway threatens, blusters
and domineers; and small congress
men tremble before its president and
its great lawyers in a manner posi
tively shameful to Southern man
This is news to most of us who
live on the line of this great railway
system. If the Southern Railway
"threatens, blusters and domineers "
as Prof. Dodd says it does, it must
do dt very quietly as we have never
heard of it before. Nor have we
ever heard of a "small congressman
trembling before its president and
its great lawyers in a manner posi
tively shameful to Southern man
hood." If Dr. Dodd knows these
things he should give us the proof.
The President of the Southern Rail
way is a Southern gentleman, and
so are most of the gentlemen asso
ciated with him in the management
of this great Southern Railway.
While we have never heard of the
Southern Railway doing the mean
things Prof. Dodd says it is doing,
we have heard of its spending thous
angs of dollars helping the farmers
along its lines to fight the cotton boll
weevil and in other ways better their
condition. We have heard of it
spending thousands of dollars in ad
vertising South Carolina anu other
Southern States trying to induce
white settlers to come to us from
the Wost. According to our observa
tion the Southern Railway never
loses an opportunity to do what it
can to better the condition of the
people living in the territory through
which it runs.
Prof. Dodd in his Chicag- home
may know more about the doings of
the Southern Railway than those of
us who live on its line, but we do
not believe he does, and when he
says it "threatens, blusters and dom
ineers and that small congressmen
tremble before its president and
great lawyers in a manner shameful
I to Southern manhood," we will be
I compelled to believe that the profes
j sor is talking through his hf.t unless
he substantiates his charj\-> with
I something more than hot air.
I The Bamberg Herald endorses!
I what Prof] Dodd says, and possibly
?it can tell us the name of the small
congressman that trembles before
the Southern's president and great
lawyers, and when and how the
Southern Railway threatens, blus
ters and-domineers. Railroads should
oe regulated and made to respect the
rights of the people from whom they
hold their charters, but there is no
sense in abusing them as seme poli
ticians do. Railroads prospers as
the people whom they serve pros
per, and it would be suicidal in the
railroads to impoverish the people
that supports them.
President Taft Hedging.
If the report that comes from
Washington that President Taft
wants as his running mate* next year
Senator -Cummins instead of Vice
President Sherman is true It is evi
dent that the President is trying, to
hedge on his tailff record. We agree
with the Greenville Daily Piedmont
that "Taft and Cummins would be
an incongenous combination. While
both are Republicans, their views on
many questions are diametrically an
tdaphetic. In the first place, Cum
mins, who is going west, will proba
bly object to being yoked up with
Taft, who is bent upon going east.
It Cummins should stutil'y himself
by being a candidate with Taft upon
a platform built to meet Taft's views,
he would make himself a by-word
and ruin his own political future.
Cummins is a Progressive. Taft
may have at heart sympathy with
Progressive ideas but his actions?
and men must be judged by their
actions?have put big rocks in the
way of accomplishment of those
things in national politics for which
Cummins is actively worked. Oil and
water will make a better mixture
than Taft and Cummins <ya the same
ticket, unless Taft is going to break
loose from the reactionaries or stand
patters who have had the benefit of
his official actions however little his
sympathies may have been with them.
Sherman is the natural and proper
running mate for Taft, as he Is open
ly and candidly,' frankly and avow
edly in favor of the highest kind of
high tariff, and that Is what Taft fa
vors, if he be judged by his official
conduct and not by hiB words.
"And even his words condemn
him, for in his speeches he has en
dorsed the Payne-Aldrich tariff law,
which was enacted in repudiation of
the platform pledge of the Republi
cans, in the campaign resulting in
Taffs election in favor of a down
ward revision of the tarii". The talk
of putting Cummins on the platform
with Taft is like the grasping at
straws by a drowning man. His
nomination, instead of helping Taft,
would tend to defeat him, because it
would be a confession of the tariff
shortcomings of his administration
without the honesty of an open avow
al thereof. The fight of .'93 2 will be
waged upon the tariff issue and thera
will be way of ducking or dodging." I
Applauded Him 3lf.
Representative Littlepage of West
[Virginia was censured by the House
I for writing "applause" fourteen
j times and "loud applause" once in a
speech printed in The Record with
out being delivered on the floor. The
State says early in the session Mr.
J Littlepage got pesmission to "ex
tend his remarks In The Record."
Minority Leader Wann then noted
"applause," "loud applause," "great
applause " and finally "ioud and pro
longed applause and congratula
tions" for remarks that were never
made. It is suspected that copies of
The Record in which the rebuke ap
pears will not be assidulously circu
lated by Representative Littlepage
among his constituents as that in
which he so cordially and unani
mously extended his "congratula
tions" to himself.

The Trouble Mrs. Buchanan Had,
And How She Finally Over
came It With Cardui.
Liverpool, W. Va.? Mrs. N. J.
Buchanan writes from this place: "I
suffered for three years with womanly
troubles, and had such pains I thought
I would die. I could not stand up long
enough to cook a meal. I would work
a little, and then have to sit down. At
last, I had to be in bed half the time.
My husband read a Cardui advertise
ment that described almost the way I
felt, so I sent for some Cardui. After
taking it, I began to get better right
Now, I am cured, and I am very
grateful, indeed, for what Cardui has
done for me. I shall always praise it."
Cardui is a woman's tonic?a
strengthening remedy for women,
especially for women, from perfectly
harmless, vegetable ingredients. That's
the reason for its 50 years of success.
It will pay yon to tt s t it for yourself.
