Arrangements Made fer Trip to St. Louis
and for theAnnual Meeting at
At the meeting of the executive
committee cf the State Press asso
ciation, in Columbia. on Thursday
night, it was decided that the asso
ciation accept the invitation to visit
St Louis in May. The association
will leave Columbia May 14, spend
Sunday in Louisville, arrive in St.
Louis Monday and spend a week at
the Exposition. Returning, the
party will come home via Nashville
and Chattanooga- The annual
meeting will be held at Whitestone
Springs, on July 6. A fine pro
gramme has been arranged.
Able, Fearless and Loyal.
The Sentinel, as a friend and ad
vocate of the dispensary law, admits
a distinct loss in the severance of
Mr. Williams, but we feel confident
that in his successor, Hon. H. H.
Evans, a worthy son of Newberry,
the institution will have an able,
tearless and loyal champion. His
splendid achievement in his race for
chairman of the board, serves as
unquestionable evidence of the con
fidence reposed in him by the mem
bers of the legislature. Mr. Evans'
long experience as a member of the
board will stand him in well in his
new and more responsible position.
The "well done" will be his when
the time comes for him to retire.
BLUE HEN'S CHICKEN.
After two terms as dispensary di
rector, H. H. Evans, of Newberry,
by a very large legislative majority,
has been elected chairman of the
dispensary board-the place vacated
by Leon J. \\ illiams, of Edgefield.
Mr. Williams's mantle has fallen
on broad, brave, strong shoulders.
Hub Evans will "quit him like a
man" in this position. We know
Hub Evans well. Take him up one
side and down the other, he is em
phatically one of the blue hen's
The Mule's Good Points.
Philadelphia North American.
In many respects the mule is the
noblest beast that has been placed
under man's dominion, but unjust
ridicule for some unaccountable rea
son marked the long-suffering brute
for its own and by obscuring his
many virtues and playing upon his
fiw defects and idiosyncrasies has
compelled him since the day he was
discovered by Anah in the wilder
ness to live under the torture of a
false and slanderous report. At
last, however, he is being restored
to his proper position in the social
and economic world.
In truth the mule, if he happens
to be a Missouri product, is a valua
ble, beautiful and lovely beast. For
general all around purposes, in com
parison with the horses, mules are
superior. They are easy and cheap
to raise, easy to sell and hard to
blemish. They go to the market
early and bring bigger profits for
the time, work and money expen
ded in growing than any other kind
of flesh. Disease rarely touches
them. Adversity and hard knocks
make them stronger and tougher.
A mule does not wither or weaken
with age. The process of years
simply turns his ,coltish friskiness
to contemplative sedateness, his sil
very voice to a raucous roar and his
obstreperous heels to the path of
peace. His habits as they are bet
ter understood are less feared and
more appreciated. He is tractable,
gentle, sympathetic, and very in
telligent. When well treated be
loves his master, as Sancho. the
companion of Don Quixote, and
many old negroes in the south have
He eats little and requires no
shelter and toils to the bitter end
without complaint or fatigue. HE
quickly understands the whims of
his driver and will go and can be
guided without whip or rein. He
is a dynamo in hide, an engine or
hoof-a perfect machine in flesh
and blood which rarely gets out ol
order or temper.
The Cook Approved.
Out in Columbia road lives a gentle
woman of ample means, who recently
advertised for a cook. The establish
ment is entirely in accord with an er
cellent social position, but is by no
means pretentious, so when a well rec
ommended cook called and mentioned
her price as $40 a month the lady of
the house answered that a wage of that
figure was quite out of the question.
The cook dwelt a little on her su
perior ability in the matter of getting
up smart luncheons and dinners. but
the mistress of the house answered
that she wouldn't think for a moment
of paying $40 for a cook. The chef
lady rose to depart. She was perfectly
affable, and the gentlewoman's deter
mination evidently impressed bir as
"I see how it is." she said approv
Ingly. "You are trying to live within
