One of the South Carolina Congress
ional Delegation Thinks He is
Washington, March 43.-I talked
Oday with one of the most prominent
of the South Carolina delegation in
the house as to the politicaT situation
in South Carolina.
. "In my opinion the dispensary ad
vocates should unite upon State Sen
ator Manning as their candidate for
governor," was his declaration. He
is from the upper part of the state,
too, where there is usually not strong
b cking from a candidate from the
lower section. "Manning would, be
yond all doubt, be the strongest,
ablest and cleanest man in the field.
t. Ye shows his courage in the present
fight and would make such a campaign
as would inspire the confidence of the
dispensary supporters. The election
of a man like Manning, a square, fair
supporter of the dispensary under

*nce of the people than anything
else. With Manning in the govern
or's office there would be retribution

"There is going to -be a disposition
on the part of the Gubernatorial can
didates to pla'y a middle ground in
this whole thing, to fool all sides if
they can do so, but Manning would
need no explanation of his position,
wou4ld create' no suspicion on the part
Uf the dispensary folks and would
take a brilliant leader in the fight
that is sure to follow.
"As to Tillman, I don't believe
there is a sane man in the state who
looks for serious opposition to him,
4;d with his support the dispensary
will again win over its enemies. If
there had been clean, open, . square
politics played against the dispensary
there might have been trouble for it,
but there has been too much under

MAN'S DISPLAY OF JEWBLRY.I
P6ads Smartest of Gems for Him
Used for Studs and Scarf Pins
* -The Ouf Links of Good
here is more jewelry than ever for
ien; to wear, but it does not follow
that all well dressed men avail them
selves of the opportunity to display
what they are commonly expected to
indulge in only moderately. What
with the gold trappings that are now
*made for a key chain, the gold cigar
ette and card cases and the other ar
ticles of gold that are a regular part
of dress, a man may invest a large
sum of money in jewelry and lok a
very great deal like a bounder.
On the other hand, he may spend a
great deal more money for jewelry
and yet be dressed in perfect taste
and modesty. The man who wears too
many rings, pins and other jewels is
eertain to be noticed immediately.
-Women are the first, too, to^eriticise
~him among themselves for lack of
taste. How often does one hear wo
man say: , .
"Oh, yes, he's a nice fellow. But
he wears too many rings''
The numnber of permissible jewels in
good taste is large enough now to sat
isyevery reasonable person, and -a
man may have all he 'wants, so long
as he is careful as to the way he
wears them. Take, for instance, the
*subject of rings.
A seal may always be worn. When
it be gold or some kind of stone, it
is permissible always on the third fin
ger of the left hand, however numer
ous the rings on the right hand may
On the third and the small finger
of the right hand two or three rings
may be worn, so long as they are of
" the appropriate kinds. Carved gold
or silver rings, rings with such stones
a.s a cabochon, sapphire, a cat's eye,
eornelian, an emerald or a ruby, so;
long as they are set down in the ring
and are thus made inconspicuous, are
in good taste.
It has frequently been questioned*
whether diamonds should be worn in
rings at any time. Some men do wear
them, however, and they are often
men dressed in excellent taste. They
usually contrive to have the stone set
SOld gold or gold so deeply coveredi
as to have almost the look of bronze is
frequently used for a diamond set
ting, to tone down its excessive bril
liancy. There are nowadays a number!
of semi-precious stones that are very~
effective and well bred in men's rings.
The number of rings a man may
wear depends, of course, on the na
ture of his occupation. To see busy~

value. They must be worn, of course.

more than one old ring is worn the
two must harmonize. These old rings
contrasted with obviously new and
modern rings do not make a happy
For evening wear most men prefer
pearl studs and nothing is handsomer.
Most New Yorkers wear two pearls in
the shirt bosom. These should not be
too large. even if their owner is a
multi-millionaire. The. Oriential and
not the baroeque pearls are, of course,
most in demand.
The single large pearl surrounded
by small diamonds is less frequently
seen here than in London, where this
style is popular. The best dressed
New York men prefer two medium
sized pearls of fine lustre. If they
want to spend money on their shirt
studs they put it into the quality of
the pearls and not the size.
So many men wear buttons for
their waistcoat matching the studs
that there is a tendency to have both
the sleeve links and the waistcoat
buttons made of pearls. Especially
has this appealed to men able to do
what they want without thinking of
the price. But the correct buttons to
wear with pearls are made of mother
Sometimes tiny diamonds may be
put into the middle of these buttons.
These are i'he best style for wear with
white studs. although barocque pearls
are used also for the waistcoat but
tons and the links. They are, of
course, unusually large for this pur
Of great value but in questionable
taste is a set of links and waistcoat
buttons shown by a 5th avenue jew
eller. They were made of large round
pearls, larger even than the pearls in
the studs. They cost in the thous
Moon stone studs surrounded with
thin bands of gold have waistcoat but
tons and sleeve links to match. In
the colored stones these are so beau
tiful that it is not! difficult to under
stand \vhy men are tempted to aban
don .the old standard of only black
and' white and wear these buttons in
emeralds, sapphires, rubies, turquoises
and amethysts and even coral and to
All these studs come rimmed with
slender bands of gold, the studs dif
fering from the links and waistcoat
buttons only in size. The links are
usually made of oval stones.
These colored studs have often been
tried for soft summer negligee shirts,
but it is impossible to keep them in
the button holes. These shirts are not
starched and the buttons cannot be
made to hold, whatever may be done.
The shirtmaker who could contrive a
means by wvhich these buttons could
be made to keep in place would prob
ably earn a comfortable fortune from
In spite of the danger of losing
them, these colored buttons are worn
all summer at Newport, where the col
ors of the stones are, of course, made
to harmonize with the shirt's mate
Links for ordinary wear are seldom
made with precious stones. Occasion
ally one sees rubies, emeralds or sap
phires in sleeve links, but the cuff but
tons made in this country are general
ly of plain gold marked with the
monogram~ or with a semi-precious
stone surrounded by gold.
The plain gold links are made up
in endless designs to suit every kind
of taste. For sporty men they are
made as crops, dumb-bells, golf clubs
or stirrups. The enamelled crystal
links painted with sporting scenes are
as popular as the pins of the same
kind, but they demand a great inter
est in sport and an unwavering admi
ration for all things British to pay
the price asked for jewelry of this
. These pieces of erystal in which the
sporting scenes are carved an'd paint
ed have long been the most popular
sporting jewelry in England and are
brought over here in large quantities.
They are very much affected by the
Long Island set for wear' while hunt
ing, but possess -little beauty -in them
selves. Sometimes ,a complete hunt
ing scene, with the pack and several
figures, will be shown on these pins
No links are better style than those
of gold with an old fashioned band of
tracery surrounding the initials of the
wearer united in a simple script mono
gram. The foreign fashion of having
a cuff button consist of one link and
a smple br of gold has never beeni
Most buttons of this kind made in
France and Ciermany have the gold
link set with -roups of precious
stolnes. Bti they look cheap and in
Complete in spite of the stones.
Pearls are just as much preferred
foi scarf pins by men who can afford
them as they are for studs. A pear
shaped pearl, plain or surrounded at
the narrow end with a tiny ring of
(liamonds, a round pearl perfectly
plan or surrounded with a ring of
diamonds that must not be large
enough to make a distinct impression,
and a black pear-shaped pearl are
equaly smart for men who can afford
Pearls both for pins and for studs
may be worn in the deepest mourning,
although black enamel is usually pre
ferred in first mourning. Gold pins
in such designs as pipes, racing plates,
fox heads and horse heads are much
more modish for men nowadays than
designs made up in gold with small
stones. There are hundred of these
models which are graceful and pretty
but not smart.
The gYold safety pin, which has been
so much worn during the last few
years, has now unluckily lost its
vogue among well dressed men. It was
not a style that could stand wide
So long as only a comparatively I
small number of men wore the pins
they continued smart. But they lost
that distinction as soon as they were
put on the market at prices which put
them within the reach cf anybody.
They ha~ve been imitated in brass and
have passed over into the office boy's
Men who want, to buy an expensive
and handsome scarf pid nowadays
have but one opinion. They buy a
pearl of one of the kind described.
Watch chains are single and extend
usually from one waistcoat pocket to
another. Rather large and perfectly
plain links are the most popular.
It is only important that the chain
be. perfectly simple and free from any
ornamentation of the kind formerly
described as watch chains. The chain
may be made as expensive and heavy
Watch fobs with a gold monogram
on the silken ribbon and those with
seals on amethyst or other stones are
offered .very generally in the best of
the jewelry stores, but 'it cannot be
said that they are popular here. In
the countries of Europe they are gen
erally worn by men who change the
black ribbon for a white one when;
they wear evening dress.
Of course no such extravagant fash
ion has been attempted here.
Women love to buy men fobs for*
Christmas presents but they are very
little worn afterward by their grate-.
Key chains are not so popular as
they were. Commoner are the short
chains that, with a small gold lock,
will contain only a bunch of keys.
But there are many attractive ob
.jects to be p)ut on a key chain for the
man who wants to spend money or
who has friends who want to spend it
for him. One set of these articles in
a 5th avenue jewelry store included
a heavy gold chain, and ring, a gold
knife, pencil and a small card case.
To accompany this was a long gold ei-;
garette case capable of holding twen

A Mother's Retort.
Dr. Breckenridge, a well known
American clergyman, and his two
brothers, also of the same profession,;
one day paid a visit to their mother.

he 'that you ruled us with too rigid

Fireman Grabbed Flying Eagle.
The fireman and engineer who took
the Rocky Mountain limited out of
here last Sunday morning captured an
immense American eagle as it was
flving in the air. The experience is
probably unique in railroading.
The unfortunate king of birds will
spend the remainder of his days in
satiating the wondering gaze of the
crowds at City Park. The eagle
measures 7 feet and 4 inches from
tip to tip.
It was about 1 o'clock Saturday
afternon when nearing Limon that the
engine crew noticed the bird flying
low and straight ahead of the train.
The train was then travelling at from
sixty to sixty-five miles an hour, and
if it did not change its course it was
evident that the eagle would be over
taken. The bird was on the left side
and as the engine flashed by the fire
man reacred out and grabbed the bird
by a leg and pulled it into the cal.
With the aid of the* engineer the big
fellow was downed and tied, but it
took quite a fight.
A man would have to have mighty
little sense to fulfill the expectations
of his children.
If money was a porous plaster it
would still be sticking to somebody
else than yourself.
When a man says a corporation has
made him a fine offer, he means he
has applied for the job.
