A good deal of newspaper talk has
been indulged in about some one to
oppose Senator Tillman for reelection
to the senate and the names of some
good and able men have been suggest
ed. None of them, however, has said
he would undertake the contest.
.The Herald and News has never
supported Senator Tillman in the pri
mary when he had opposition but this
is one yea we are for him against the
field. There are many things about
him we do not admire but he has abil
ity and the nation is recognizing that
ability 'and South Carolina will do
well. to keep him, in the senate.
At any rate this is one year he
spiall have our support and vote what
ever it may be worth against any and
The district meeting for the fourth
"idistrict K. of P's. will be held -at
Leesville on April 18 and 19. A very
interesting and entertaining program
-will be issued in a'few days., and the
members of the order at Leesville are
making arrangements to have this
one of the best meetings of its kind
ever held in the state. There will be
a public meeting on the evening of
the 18th, at which addresses will be
made by Dr.,B. M. Crosson, extending
a welcome to the delegates; a response
by M. Rutledge Rivers, of Charleston,
Grand. Vice Chancellor, and an ad
dress on Practical Pythianism by
Grand Chancellor B. 'A. Morgan, of
Governor Heyward, who is himself
a Past Grand Chancellor, has promis
ed to attend the meeting, and has been
invited to speak at the public meet
'ing on the 18th. The business ses
sion will be held in the Castle Hall
at Leesville oi the morning of the
he Leesv~ille lodge has decided to
give the district A banquet which will
~be held in "The LeAngton,'' a new
- sminer resort 'hotel midway between
5ateburg and Leesville. This is a
happy ^idea and insures the district
one of the most delightful banquets
ever spread. A number of prominent
~Knights will respond to toasts after
: supper, and altogether it promises tc
b e a very enjoyable affair.
It seems that nothing is to be done
~'oards' enlarging the public square.
The Herald' and News believes the
;best thing to do is to widen the Main
.street about ten or fifteen feet and
ppe tht street th'rough the property
' of the 'burnt district that runs by the
opera hotjsg and let it be extended un
'Zr the railroad, to the street. in front

Tcdld be purchased by the city ad
used as a wagon yard. This would
give much more space. for wagon
ds than we have now and we be
4ieve such an arrangement would add
-~more to ,the appearance of the city
and to the value of .property and to
h4le convenience of the publi'e thani to
.,urchase the entire burnt square.
- Besides this it would cost much le.ss

.Harris' Method Of Work.
Those who have marveled at th
spontaneity of Joel Chaldler Harris
'works, will find it satisfactorily at
.counted for by the fact that M:
Harris' method is to write when an
where the inspiration seizes him an
- only then. The new collection of Ur
cle Remus' stories has all the fresi
ness of the old one. Mr. Haniis wi
not be hurried, and it is possibly fc
that reason that his work stands oi
among the work of all the wvriters c
today for its sweetness and its leis
uirely charm. He has no settled libre

of his own. but in every- room of hi

ing the independence, the self-reli

men, and of the endless vistas of pos
sibilities that were thus opened up to
them. Todlay, too. one hears a great
deal of such talk uttered by theoriz

instance, and women who have never
done a stroke of real work in their

ask them how they like their work
and how much interest they take in
the business and what prospects of
advancement they have.
Is The Tide Turning?
It sounds all very well when you
theorize eloquently on this subject;
but here in the city streets and offices
the hard facts will keep -thrusting
themselves under one's nose and dis
tracting the attention from lofty sen
I timents. She will .not always acknowl
edge it, but I believe that the ruling
ambition of. every self-respecting girl
who works in an office is to get mar
ried as soon as possible and thus get
out of it.
Unfortunately, however, the very
fact of her being there is the great ob
stacle that closes the passage' of her
way out, for now that the business,:
world is thronged with women men
cannot earn large enough salaries to
marry on. There is nothing for her
to do, then, but to remain -an old maid
and keep on grinding out typewrit
ten letters ad infinitum.
The tide, I am glad to say, is turn
ing, the pendulum is beginning to
swing the other way. Women made a
mad rush. to get into business; now
they are preparing to make an equal- i
ly mad rush to, get ont of it.
I-hope they will succeed in doing
so. I hope the time is not far away
when there will not be a single busi
ness woman to be seen on Wall Street
or Broad street or Nassau street. The
business world. will be well ~rid of
them and they of it.
