FRIDAY, APRIL 8, i9o4.
Judge Ernest Gary's charge to the
Richland county grand jury this week
has elicited much favorable comment.
It is stated that "Judge Gary had been
approached by a number of jurors
who offered various excuses for trying
to get out of jury duty. This suggest
ed. to Judge Gary the necessity for
calling to their attention the respon
sibilities entrusted to jurors and the
necessity of having good men serve
on the juries." Judge Gary, in the
outset, stated his regret "to notice a
disposition on the part of some of our
best citizens to shirk jury duty." -If the
system does not work successfully,"
said Judge Gary, "the fault is not in
the system, but in those who under
take to administer the laws. I have
no complaint to make of the jury sys
tem, but I simply desire to urge upon
you the importance of the interests
that are intrusted to you, and let your
efforts be such that at the conclusion
of this court I may congratulate the
. 1. .ople of Richland county on the se
lectin of you gentlemen as grand ju
Judge' Gary is right. What South
Carolina needs most today is not a
change of jury system or a change of
laws or more laws but a stricter en
forcement of the laws which we have.
The responsibility of the juror is
great but his duty is clear-cut, for he
is bound simply by his oath. The dis
position to shirk jury duty is wrong.
Upon the jurors of this country,-the
men whose duty it is to render right
eous verdicts under the laws which we
have,-depends more the future of
this country than upon those who
make our laws.
Former President Grover Clevc
land, according to dispatches sent
from Washington, has virtually de
clared in favor of Parker for the pres
idential nomination by the democratic
party. Why now, if Mr. Bryan has
the interest of the democratic party
at heart, should he not come out and
declare for Parker? Parker is the
strongest man mentioned for the
nomination so far. Of that there
seems to be little doubt. Should Bryan;
and Cleveland unite in favor of his
nomination he would receive the nom
ination and with the two wings of
the democratic party united once
more the democrats would sweep the
country this fall. 'The troub!e r.ow
is with *Bryan. We are still of the
number who believe in Mr. Bryan's
sincerity, but he is very, very stub
In this issue of The Herald and
'News there appears an interview
with the Rev. W. L. Seabrook in
which Mr. Seabrook emphatically
states that he has such confidence in
the integrity of United States Senator
J. R. Burton that he would not believe
Mr. Burton guiltty of the charge upon
which he has been convicted except
Mr. Burton himself acknowledge his
guilt. This is a very strong defense
of Mr. Burton by a personal friend
and a man whom the people of Ne
berry know personally and who lives
and labors among them. Mr. Sea
brook is a deep student of human na
ture and, knowing Mr. Burton as he
does, his words can not but carry

backache and I have not felt it since
using them. Before getting the pills
at W. E. Pelham & Son's drug store the
pain in my back was constant and I
had to quit work several times on ac
count of it. I could not sleep nights,
would go to bed tired but after sleeping
a couple of hours I would awaken with
an awful backache. If I had been lay
ing upon a pile of store it could not have
felt worse. I wanted to turn over but
the first move I made caused such
acute pain that it was something awful.
I had no strength in my back and would
have to take both hands to pull myself
over the terrible pains tearing at me all
the time. No remedies I could get

of their use. I felt better almost at
once and r-ince using them the pains in
my back have left me. They are a
