Nominated as a Dauntless, Patriotic,
Strenuous and Respectable
New York Sun.
To the Editor of the Sun-Sir:
Since the inevitable seems to be the
nomination of the dauntless and
heroic Roosevelt for president by
the Republicans, why should not
the Democrats give us the bravest,
most genial, energetic and whole
some man in either house at Wash
ington-Benjamin Ryan Tillman
as their nominee.
Tillman stands out as one of the
safest men in either party to select
as president. He is safe because of
his matchless courage. No man
living would be less swayed to lend
himself to the clamors of the mob,
or to some violent economic heresy.
He has convinced the nation that
he lives up to what he believes. He
successfully led the battle in South
Carolina for a fair representation in
the legislature for the interior peo
ple, and won in the face of a tho
roughly intrenched opposition. He
fAvored the dispensary law, and it
became a law. He then made it
effective, although the state militia
from the large cities defied him,
and certain Federal courts lent their
efforts to nullify that dispensary
When Tillman entered the senate,
it was almost impossible to find a
man north of the Mason and Dixon
line to put in print above his own
signature that it was the folly of
follies to thrust upon the illiterate
black man the right of suffrage.
It was Tillman who shocked us
by telling the truth. He has now
convinced fair-minded people that
the white man of the South has
done and is doing what only self
respect'ng men should do, to wit:
minimizing the influence of ignor
ance, incapacity and superstition as
much as possible in public life to
the extent that if they will not even
learn to read, then deprive them of
This brusque, fearless man is the
gentlest of men when out of the
political arena. Ask those who
know his home life best, northern
ers or southerners, and they will all
attest that this gladiator of the sen
ate is one of the most lovable, kind
and considerate of men to family,
friends and servants; and it makes
no difference whether the servants
are black or white.
Little has ever been made known
as,-t Tillman's love of music, po
Etry and good literature. It is a
question whether another man lives
who has so studied the thoughts and
life of Lincoln.
No doubt many Democrats will
not take kindly to Tillman as presi
dent. He would be wholly Ameri
can and patriotic. It might grate
harshly .n some of them to find the
Spooners and Chandlers- as welcome
to the white house as the most or
thodox Democrat, but the country
could stand that.
Roosevelt on the one ticket and
Tillman on the other would give us
a spirited and spectacuar campaign;
but the result no one would need to
fear, as we know the peculiarities
of both men; and we can rest assured
that each would give us an admin
istration distinctively characteristic

Hon. Cole L. Blease Makes a Hit in The1

In double column headlines the
Augusta Chronicle calls attention
to what it designates the eloquent
address of Hon. Cole L. Blease be

was a great feast and good time for:
all as the paper says. Following

Mr. McCowen after a short ad
dress on the principles and precepts
of the order, explaining that it was
nothing more than a 1-igher branch
of Odd Fello jism, introduced Mr.
H. H. Caban , referring to him
as not only a leading man of af
fairs in the commercial life of the
city, but one whose heart was in
sympathy with the teachings of the
After expressing his deep appre
ciation of meeting so many of the
ladies and gentlemen of the city,
Mr. Cabaniss referred to the origin
of the several secret orders now so
popular with the people, declaring
that they sprang from the higher
idea that found lodgment in maj;
that he was his brother's keeper
in many respects, and it was the
duty of man to elevate and uplift
man. He eulogized the order for
its good work along this line. In
closing Mr. Cabaniss gracefully in
troduced the grand master of South
Carolina, Hon. Cole L. Blease, of
Newberry, S C.
Mr. Blease responded in a happy
manner, quickly gaining the atten
tion of his hearers, and holding
them by his magic eloquence and
convulsing humor. He referred to
the principle of Odd Fellowism in
the most eloquent language, exalt
ing that honor which the order
teaches its members to practice not
only in the lodge rooms, but in the
marts of the world. He also paid a
high tribute to women, declaring
that God created the world in an
ascending scale and that in this
ascending scale, woman was the
last handiwork of creative power.
It was his best work, and he wel
comed them as co-workers in the
upbuilding of the order.
Mr. Blease also referred to the
kindly feeling of brotherly love that
always existed between the States
of South Carolina and Georgia and
eulogized Georgia for coming to the
rescue of their sister State lying
Ijust across the river, in their
darkest days, when they were
struggling to throw off the yoke
of the carpet-baggers. Mr. Blease's
address , was interspersed with
laughable yarns and incidents that
kept the crowd in a good humor.
The address was well received,
winning Mr. Blease a warm place in
the hearts of the Augusta mem
bers of the order.

Its Great Wall Wns One of the Won
ders of Thome Dnys.
According to Ilerodotus. the ancient
city of Babylon stood on a brom1. leve
plain and was an exact square of four
teen miles each way. making the entire
circuit of the city lifty-six miles. It
was protected both by a wall and a
moat, the latter being broad and deep
and kept constantly filled with water.
But the wall was the wonder of won
ders. being 193 1-3 feet in width and an
even 200 feet in hicfg't. This monstei
barrier was providt-d with 100 gates
all of solid brass, the lintels and side
pieces being in bronze. Cross walls
ran along the banks of the Euphrates,
each provided with twenty-five gates.
which corresponded to the number of
Itreets running in each direction fron
The most remarKable edifice inside
the wall was the temple of Bel, a pyra.
mid of eight square stadia. On the
summit of this pyramid stood a pure
gold image of Bel forty feet high, two
other smaller figures of the same pre
dous metal and a golden table forty feet
long and fifteen feet wide. This won
derful city first came prominently into
the history of the world in the year 747
B. C., but since the time of Alexander
the Great it has been a ruin, the site
having at one time been entirely lost.
THE GREAT CONDOR.
It Is the Most Dificult Bird In the
World to Trap.
Probably the great condor is the most
difficult bird in the world to trap. One
of the great vultures, it inhabits lofty
peaks of the Andes, hardly accessible
to man. It builds its nest among the
topmost crags. often on a ledge of some
precipice with an almost perpendicular
drop of many hundred feet.
An extremely wary bird, it shares
with its congeners the proverbial "ea
gle eye"~ and is thus able to see im
mense distances while yet unseen by
man. Its wings have a spread of
twelve feet. and. though its flight is
heavy, it can sustain itself for long pe
riods in the air.
To trap it men ascend to its haunts
and shoot some animal of considerable
size. This is skinned, and a man lies
down by the body under the skin and
waits, perhaps for hours. Soon ,con
dors come flocking round until one set
tes on the skin, when the man below
grips its legs, flings the skin over it
and stabs it to ceath.
The strength of these birds is enor
mous, and the condor hunters often
have their arms broken by strokes
from their powverful wings.
The Ofrending Handkerchief.
It is in fact a grave sanitary ques
tion whether the handkerchief does not*
do more harm than good as it is ordi
narily used. When we assume that the
nose does not need to be wiped, we face
a reasonably broad proposition as to~
the danger of the handkerchief as a.
disease propagator. Most nasal ca
tarrhs are of an infectious character,
notaly those of grip origin.
Contrary to a general law of asepsis..
the handkerchief saturated with dis-.
ease germs, instead of being promptly
washed, is stowed for hours in the
pocket. with a result that can be easily
imagined. is it any wonder then that
catarrh is constantly fostered by a sys-.
tem of auto infection?--Medical Record.

It is said that seeds bave been

though thousands of years old, still
preserved their vitality. However,
in planting for profit, it is wiser to
demand seeds of a later crop.
Seeds can't be too fresh, which
means that you must have those
grown last year. There is one
