Speaker Cannon's Friendship For Him
Evidenced At the President's
A Washington dispatch to the
Greenville News says that Con
gressman Aiken attended the big
reception given by President Roose
velt Thursday night. It was his first
visit, but cqurtesy demanded that
he should go to at least one of the
four big receptions given by the
President during the winter. These
receptions are attended by the Four
Hundred of Washington and the
cream of the official life of the cap
ital. Handsomely dressed men,beau
tiful women in the most fashionable
attire to be seen in the world, for
eign diplomats, with their bright
uniforms and their strange tongues,
the beautifully decorated and bril
iantly lighted rooiis. the music of
the Marine band, all furnish a
measure of intoxication for the new
Congressman Aiken was wander
ing around with Mrs. Aiken, point
ing out to his wife the men of
promiinence when "Uncle Joe" Can
non, speaker of the House, slapped
him on the shoulder in hearty style,
and said: "Hello, Aiken, this is a
great scene, isn't it? How are you
enjoying yourself? I am delighted
to see yo1 out tonight."
"I am pleased to be present,"
said Aiken, in that hearty, frank
way of his, "but just between you
and me, Mr Speaker, I do not enjoy
this half as much as being with a
patty of the men and women of my
district. I've got the finest lot of
people in my district in the world,
and I'm never so happy as when
among them, talking with the men
about all sorts of things and with
the ladies about whatever pleases
their good souls to talk about."
"Well, Aiken, you are a philoso
pher, sure," said Speaker Cannon,
"and, confidentially, I don't mind
telling you that I prefer plainer peo
ple and plainer things than this my
self," and the brainest Republican
in the I-louse went on talking with
Aiken a long time. There is a de
cided friendship between the two
men, and Congressman Aiken will
probably find that the speaker will
be a valuable friend to him as he
continues to serve in the House.

Steau led Him Down to His Gait.
Cor. Augusta Chronicle.
The contest for chairman of the
board of dispensary directors was
preceded by a warm campaign. For
nights there have been caucuses of
all kinds and of all degrees of heat.
Col. H. H. Evans, of Newberry,
was opposed by Mr. J. A. McDer
inott, of Horry. When it came
down to the vote Evans won in a
canter. On the first ballot the
eltction was secured, Evans get
ting ninety-nine votes and McDer
mott fifty-six. It was an easy
thing for Hub Evans. He is a very
popular man and known from one
end of the State to the other. He
is of a genial robust disposition,
shakes hands like a whirlwind and
talks in loud, cheerful tones. He
knows all about the dispensary,
having served several terms as a
member of the board of directors.
When seen right after the race Mr.
Evans was jubilant and as he
grasped the hands of his friends,
"Why, lie didn't more than toe
weight me, did he? JuFt steadied
me down to my gait, eh?"
Mr .Evans and his friends, who are
numerous, are well pleased at the
great victory, Niich is quite a coi
pliment to the winner, for Mr. Mc
Dernott is himself a strong inaii.
The Value of Politeness.
If those who are doubtful as to
the correct course to pursue in any
given situation will remember that
even the wrong thing is overlooked
if one is but absolutely polite in the
doing of it, their relief might be
A gentleness of demeanor and a
courteons response or question can
never be out of place. A man may
wear a business suit of clothes to an
evening wedding less noticeably
than a truculent air of insolence. If
lie be perfectly well bred as far as
behavior goes, it matters not so
much what his outward garb, al
though by an unwritten law of
social observance certain clothes are
the correct thing for the certain
l'oliteness is never wrong. Its
practice goes nearly all the wa\
toward the goal (if the right thing
in the right phace. We hear of polit,
insolence. but insolence is ne-e
