JACKSON A SOUTH CAROLINIAN
'He Himself So Declared in Procla

.To the Editor of The State:
*I read recently a statement that thie
question of President Jackson's na
'iye state was still, and would per
haps ever remain, unsettled.
Today I read in an old magazine I
found in my father's library, styled
The Examiner and Journal of Polit
ieal Economy. printed in Philadel
phia, Pa., dated Wednesday, May 28,
1834, a proclamation issued by An
drew Jackson, president of the United
.States, addressed to the citizens of
the Statg of South Carolina, reasoning
with them on the rights of a State to
,nullify the act of congress, which the'
.State had recently passed, in which
proclamation he uses these words:
"Fellow citizens of my native State.
let me not only admonish you as the
first magistrate of our common coun

It seems to' me whekn Jackson
thus speaks of South Carolina as his
native State there should be no fu-r

by Dr. J. P. Mellard, president of the
'D.orchesber County Anti-Saloon
League, and the speakers were intro
duced by the Rev. J. M. Steadman,
pastor of the local Methodist church.
There were approximately 300 people
in attendance and at the conclusion of

1)r. ('romer. in the course of his
remarks. took occasion to touch upon
the situation in Charleston. He said
that when a blind tiger was caught in
Greenville he was sent to the chain
gang, while in Charleston he was made
a member of the grand jurv. which is
the same statement he is alleged to
have made elsewhere. He was a.sked
by the representative of the News
and Courier for a synopsis of his
speech. but it could not be secured.,
" Tell my old friend Hemphill.''he said
"that if some of those millions are
returned for taxation which are now
lying in banks the $140.000 revenue
from the dispensary will not be lost.'
Dr. Cromer also spoke of the sit
uation in Newberry county and said
that drunkenness has decreased there
almost phenomenally since the whis

said that according to a statement

There is a growing sentiment against
the dispensary in this section, and it
is now generally conceded that it will
be voted out in August. Both Dr.
Cromer and the Rev. Mr. Don,hoe are
forceful and eloquent speakers, and
the statistics of intemperance given
by them show that they have given
the subject considerable thought.

PRBSIDENT'S TRAVELING EX
A Criticism by One Observer and An -
Answer by Another.
Very Expensive Traveling.
Congress has voted $25,000 for thie
iaveling expenses of President Taft.
The la-rgeness of the sum is not due to
the largeness of the manA but to the
Lgnity of the office. The president~
annot. travel in the ordinary coach
wvith common people, and so must
ae special cars of his own; and
that makes his traveling expensive.
But $25,000 would represent a great
:leal of traveling in a year even at
very expensiv.e style.

"'Notwithstanding ~ the stringency

How Gus Kohn Swiped the Saddle.
Although we know that he needs
the rest, we regret to see Col. E. H.

Kohn works everybody for all they

he does it. When at Chicamauga our
regiment liad not been equipped and
as a result there were no saddles ex
cept those owned by officers. Col.
Kohn was the special correspondent
for the News and Courier at the time
aild be found it a hard matter to get
his special news to the mail station
at Lvtle. which was about three miles
from wi:'bre ve were caliped. How
ever. being a newspaper man. lie gen
erally found a way. He would swipe
the private saddle of Adjutant -?4)1hn1
Frost (later Adjutant General of this
State). We were always glad to make
the special trips if 6ol. Kohn would
secure the saddle, as we had plenty of
army mules. and they were all as wild
as African zebras, none of them hav
ing had a sadidle or bridle on t1hem.
About the time we would get away
from camp Capt. Frost would need
his saddle. As he was Regimental
Adjutant it was necessary for him to
saddle up and ride up and down in
front of the Regiment to read orders
to the solkliers. Admitted to have the
best lungs of any officer in camp, Ad
jutant Frost could be heard for sev
eral miles when Gus Kohn would
swipe his saddle. After giving vent
to his feelings the Adjutant would be
th.imself again and although he had
Pussed Guz awfully, within a few min
utes after the saddle had been return
ed the two would be cracking jokes.
Aid Gus continued to swipe the sad
die and John continued to cuss, but
nobody ever did get hurt.-Ander

Appetite is just a natural desire for

very dangerous to a person's good
