Mr. Arthur Kibler has resigned the
trusteeship of the State Colored col
lege at Orangeburg, because the con
-titution of South Carolina prohibit
ed him from holding this trusteeship
and a seat in the general assembly at
the same time. The constitution is
plain in this respect, and its provi
sions are mandatory. Mr. Kibler
could hot 1have done less without
openly defying the law, and Mr. Kib
ler would not have done less.
President-elect Taft's speech in At
lanta would seem to indicate -that the
next administration will treat the
South fairly in the matter of Federal
appointments to office. Mr. Tft~ is
showing himself a -man of broad
views, and if he carries out the poli
ey whieh his Atlanta speech gives
promise of, he will be she president of
the whole country, as he should be.
~. Mr. Taft's remarks referring to this
maitter are pubilished in The Herald
~and News today.
The fight for State-wide prohibi
-tion is on in the general assembly. It
~s a serious question with many as to
whether the effort to force State
wide prohibiition upon 'the people at
th-is particular time, however 'honest
it may be, is a fight in the interest
of real temperance.

Fagg's Female Minstrel Show.
The Fagg Mins:trels performed in
this city Monday. Tuesday, and Wed
nesday nights of the present week.
Monday night the house would have
been filled but for the circulation of
fa.lse and slanderous story against
the character of the show, which kept
tie ladies from turning out in full.
Several ladies, however, were present,
and we take pleasure in saying that
the performances were clean and en
joyable. But if anybody expects to
,hear Sunday school questions and the
like at a theatre. that person visits
it-he wrong place in going to the thea
tre at Laurens, Newberry or any oth
er "one of the most progressive ci
ties in upper Carolina."
The lady members of the Fagg
Minstrel Co. are young, pretty and
graceful, and sweet singers. while tha
comedians are good in their parts
too. Altogether it is about the most
beautiful "bunch of girls'' playing
here in a long while. Some of them
have voices for clear and pure melody
high above the average, and way be
yond the reach of the gereral run.
The Messrs, .Fagg are comedians of
a high order, and the lady members
of the company are so elever as a
body that we have to lump them in
a bunch to pay them compliments.
The mindtrels got off several new
jokes-at least they were new to us
which made the entertainment more
Tuesday night there were numbers
of ladies present, we were pleased to
see, and we iknow they enjoyed th-e
best of the singing at any rate, which
was in some respects an improvement
on the first night-Which is saying a
great deal, for it was good Monday
night, -especially including the "See
Saw,'' and which the many present
were glad they saw.

One Place, Anyway.
Two men from New York awoke
one morning .to find t'hemselves in
Sa.va:inah. Remembering that they
were in a -prohibition State, and hay
roundings. the pair started out on a
still hunt for an eye-opener.
They were not aequainted and
were in a quandary as to where to
tart on t1heir quest, and while t'hey
were debating the question mentally
between them. -they were approached
by a. pleaswant-Jooking policeman, who
wished them "good morning.''
"Say, Jim," said one of the pil
rims to the other, "this is an open
ing. Here's a good fellow; let's ask
him." It was agreed and the bfficer
answered their inquiry by saying la
conically, "follow me.'' He walked
them t:hree blocks until they stood in
front of the cathedral. Here the

The garrulous .old lady in the stern,
of ;the boat had pestered the guide
with her comments and questions ever
since they thad started. Her meek lit
tle husband, who was htunched toad
like in the bow, fished -in silence. The
Ad lady had seemingly exhausted ev

life, wooderaft and personal history
when she suddenly espied on-e of those
