We had intended before to say-it is.
not now too late-that the reecnt in
dustrial edition of the Abbeville Press!
and BEnner showed most commend
able enterprise, and was a credit to
the editors and to the city of Abbe
ville. There is no finer town any
where than Abbeville-except New
Another northerner, following in
the footsteps of Heyburn, who was so
effectually silenced by the centempt
with which his remarks were receiv-.
ed, has made a spectale of himself
by making an attack uPo General
Lee. This time it ir? a follow by the:
name of Darling, a past commander of
pG. A. R. post, and he got off his lit

Because we. are on all the routes
suggested so far, President Hunt and
President Hunter, of the Newberry
chamber of commerce and the Pros
perity chamber of commerce, respec
tively, have not gone to sleep in the
matter of the Columbia-Newberry-.
Asheville highway, but have appoint
ed committees who will keep in
touch with the movements.
Let's build onr part of the road,
and build it now. After all, the ulti-,
mate object is good roads.
FIWE JUSTICES NEEDED.
- One of the important matters which.
the people of South Carolina will be
called to . pass upon in the confing
general election. will be a' constitu-:
tional amendment which proposes to:
increase the number of supreme court
-justices from four to five.
We believe that the' people should
vote for the amendment. There are
several reagons, which appear to us
sound, for increasing the number of
In the !irst place, there ought to be
an end of litigation as speedily -as,
possible. This is in the interest of
justice. During the past few years~
South Carolina has grown, and there
- ~ has been a great increase in the num
ber of cases, civil and criminal, nec-i
essitating increasing the number of
Judicial circuits from eight to twelve
in the last five years. This increase
in litigation of course furnishes ad
ditional work, in the same proportion,:
for the supreme court, and ~it now
taxes the physical endurance of the
four justices to keep up with the work,
and the decisions of course, are not
rendered as speedily as would be pos
sible with an additional justice.
,When it comes to the supreme court
of a State, the final tribunal to pass
upon questions of life and liberty and
property rights, every reasonable fa
cility ought to be provided, so for as
lies within the ability of the State.
Another reason is that the supreme.
court, as at present constituted, is
composed of an even number of jus
tices, as a result of which the circuit:.
judge trying a case really has the
same power as a supreme court
justice. With ,four justices on the su
preme bench, when a case is on ap
peal for decision and there is an even
division in the supreme court, the
case stands affirmed. Carried to its
logical conclusion, this simply means
that it takes three of five to decide a
case on appeal, and one of the five is:
* the circuit judge who tried it. With,
the able circuit judges we now have.
* this works no hardship, but when a
case goes up on appeal there ought
to be a decision by the appellate court
But the principal and most cozent
reauson is that raom' juistics are ne
- ed for the increased volume of work.
The cost will be small-$3,000 for a
justice and $500 for stenographer, ir
asmuch as the statute allows $500
for a stenographer for each of the
four justices now constituting the
court, and it would be presumed
that the legislature would provide the
same salary for a stenographer for
the new justice if the office should be
The cost is very in'significant in
comparison. to the benefit to be de
rived. Our supreme court is now
overworked-and, as we have said,
ex ery facilty for the proper transac
tion of business should be provited
for a court of last resort.
Clean Sports League.
The Clean Sports League of the
Carolinas has been carefully organiz
ed and elaborate arrangements have
been made to put into operation an
effective working machinery. This
organization will have no legislative
or administrative power, but will di
rect its effort along educational lines.
The headquarters are in the Y. M.
C. A. building, Charleston.
It has been organized to popularize
athletic sports and to improve' the
standard of athletic activities, so as

Clean Sport Principles.
1. Both - the home team and the

tearn as a guest.
2. Both players and spettators
should recognize good plays of the
visiting team by suitable cheering.
3. Playfrs should play 4fair and be

difficult tasks to perform. Spectators
should accord them their moral sup
port. The playeras should extend
them hearty thanks .as they leave the
5. Condemn all use of profane Ian
guage on the field.
Lists will be circulated in every
town in the Carolinas, and every man
and every boy big enough to swing
a bat is requested to add his signa
ture, with the understanding that an
b.oneist effort will be made to live up!
to these principles. Such action will
add greatly to the pleasure and dig

Took a Standing Joke.
Trains were always slow and far
between on the branch road. Nobody
knew this better than the people at
the junction--except perhaps those on
the branch itself. It was an old story
to them, and the jokes about the sit
uxation were many and good. One day
the newsdealer at the junction, grin
ning broadly to himself.
"What's the joke?" asked his wife.
"You look pr~etty well pleased with
"Oh, nothing particular," he replied,;
"exceptiong an odd fellow from the
end of the line said a funny thing.
"He'd missed his train, and there
wasn't another for two hours. He
camne to the counter to buy some
reading matter. He aske'd for a joke
book, and I said I didn't keep them.
Then he pawed over the stock, and
finally said: '.'Well, I guess I'll take
a time table instead."-Youth's Corn

What woman is there, who, if told
that her own blood sister was suffer
ing. would content herself with sew
ing for her?
No, she would lay down her needle
Ui:o thim!iie and. go to seek her,
iTh ;:0': one. says the Metropolitan
Magazine for April.
What mother wo'uld rest for a mo
ment if her own son were one who!
had fallen by the way, and simply try
to evangelize him?
The story is told, and well authen
a social student. She went to lunch
eon with her rather fashionable,
bridge-playing relative-in-law. When
conversation flagged on various sub
jects, the guest suddenly exclaimed:
"Do pray forgive me; I can't concen
trate; I am so staggered by the book
I have just been reading. I can't get
my mind off it. It says that 35,000
homeless people sleep in summer on
the beneches and grass in the London
parks. Isn't it dreadful!"
The bridge devotee looked up and
looked down; she was embarassed
and knew not how to answer. At:
last she said, rather foolishly.
"Well, I don't know; I think it's
very lucky they have got the parksi
to sleep in. Will yoil have a chop?"
It is so easy to "sew for the poor."
It is so hard to leave one's ease and
go about as Christ did, doing good.
The Old Church Choir.
I seem to hear the voices
And the songs they used to sing,
The sweet reverberatio.
"Jesus All to Thee I Bring."
I see the old choir in its place
Just as it used to be,
And softly through the years comes
'Nearer, My God, to Thee."
And the voices, 0, the voices
Of that happy long ago,
To my listening soul are singing
All the songs I used to know.
Comes an echo far and fainty
Of the world that is to be,
Like a bened'c.ion, saintly
"Rock of Ages Cleft for Me."
Friends of other days, I see them
Gathered in that holy place;
They are singing of my Savior
"When I meet Him Face to Face."
Still the melody is ringing, zz
Swelling to that old church dome,
Sweetest peace to me is bringing
"When We'll Be Gathered Home."
And my life though lone and friend
Sorrow's biHows round me roll,
Yet they speak of joy that's endless,
"Jesus, Lover of My Soul."
Far across the gloom and shadows
Gleams a beacon fair and. bright,
Pilot of my soul forever,
."Lead Thou Me, 0 Kindly Light."
Lead, and with Thy beams to guide me
I at last shall.reach the goal,
Storms of life no more betide me,
"Whea. the Surges Cease to Roll.'
