Slowly dribbling in from the east
comes the news of battles between
the Japanese and the Russians, and
the victories seem to be usually and
largely on the side of the islanders.
On the water -the Japs are more than
a match for their continental neigh
bors, which is usually the case with
peoples- who live in the sea-girt is
lands and to whom the water is
home. The end is not yet, however,
unless we are mistaken, and while
the Japs may add victory to victory,
they are in the end likely to wear
themselves out whipping their stolid
and swarming enemies. Neverthe
less the Japs are making it lively.
At his unique coal camp at Zeigler,
Ill.. Joseph Leiter was talking the
other day about Paris.
"In Paris one autumnal afternoon
another American and I boarded a
carriage for a drive." he said.
" NWhere shall I tell the cabby to
take us?' my friend said.
" 'Oh. anywhere.' said I.
"Accordingly he told the man to
drive us to the tomb of George Wash
"The cabby bowed gravely and
whipped up. For an hour he tooled
us here and there, and up and down,
and finally he halted before a statute
in a little square of grass.
" 'Behold, sirs,' he said 'the tomb of
the great, immortal George Washing
.We looked at the statue.
" 'But why,' said my friend, 'does

"Because, sir,' replied the cabby,
'they were twin brothers, and died in
each 'other's arms to save the crown

*A New Kind of Ram.
Little Helen had just come home
after a visit to grandma's and was
telling mother all the wonderful
things she had seen.
"One day I saw a whole flock of
sheep," she said, "and there were a
lot of rams too. Grandpa said they
were fine ones and that he had one
of almost every kind there was."
The next day Helen started to write
"Who are you writing to dear?"
"Grandpa," instantly answered
Helen, "to tell him a new kind of
ram I'm sure he hasn't got in his
flock. I hear Mr. Smith over at the
water tower talking of it today."
"What kind is that?" asked mother.
"A hydraulic ram," replied Helen.
A curious means of moving boats
is employed on the Elbe. A chain
ago miles long lies at the bottom of
the stream wvhich is too swift to nav
igate in the usual way. The boats are
18o feet long and provided with 200
horsepower steam engines, which turn
a drum fastened on the deck. The
chain comes in over the bow, passes
along on rollers to the drum, around
which it is wound three times. The
chain is the carried to the stern,
where it drops back into the water.
It is the longest chain in the world.

When you first elected me sheriff
you simply showed your confidence
in me as a man and your willingness
to try me in an important office. My
ability to fill the office was to be test
ed. Last Tuesday you did much
more: I had stood the fair test of
service, and you again put the stamp
of your approval on my official con
duct and record. At first I was grate
ful for your confidence: now I am
doubly grateful for -our confidence
and your approval. I have no power
to make laws: it is my duty to exe
cute the law. I am the servant of
the courts. I feel that I have given
vou a clean, fearless, energetic. and
efficient administration of the office of
Sheriff: and my record in the past
is my promise for the future. I wish
I had the words to say how grateful
I am to my generous friends in the
mill clubs. in the c;ther town clubs,
and in the clubs throughout the coun

I have warm and grateful apprecia
tion: for my competitor and those
who supported him I have nothing
but the kindest feelings: for my
county and state I have the earnest
desire and intention to render the
best service of which I am capable.

Editor Herald and News: I have
received several letters from citi
zens of Newberry stating that Hon.
I. H. McCalla has been sending out
public documents under my frank, and
desiring to kndw if such procedure was
authorized by me. I beg to request
that you will make this public answer
through the columns of your paper.
I know nothing of any books sent out
by Mr. McCalla, and if any have
been sent out by him it is without my
knowledge or authority. Some time
ago, he sent me a list of names of
people whom he said had asked him
to request me to send them horse
books or year books, and I sent the
list to my secretary in Washington,
and he says that they were sent out.
But they were my own books, and
went out under my frank. This is not
unusual, as I am always glad to send
public documents to people who de
sire them and I have their names,
and often send them out to a list of
people on request of their friends.
This is the extent of my knowledge
of the matter.
Yours very truly,
A'. C. Latimer.

They tell a good story about
"Abe" Hummel, the New York attor
ney. acocrding to the Cleveland Plain
Dealer. Years ago this midget of
American jurisprudence was trying
a case before Judge Van Brunt, then
as now, a person of awful majesty
on the bench. One of the witnesses
was unwilling or bashful, or some
thing else, and Hummel, who -was
cross-examining her, worked very
hard for every answer he got.
"Come 'ow, ma dam, I want to
know just what was said. Let me
have it, word for word."
"Oh, I cannot bring myself to re

much ashamed. They are not fit for
respectable people to hear:'
