special interest to the world at large
of course, but it is of some little im

never at any time willing-and cer

Yes, he is glad, and gateful to a
kind Providence that he is able to bE
up and about, and still able to wield
the stylus, some.
And he hopes to be with his broth

to meet, (may be the last for him,) sc
that all may say with the sweet sing
"Yes, we're boys-always playing
with tongue or with pen;
And I sometimes have asked, shall wE

Shall we always be youthful, and
laughing and gay,
Till the last dear companion drops

"Then here's to our boyhood, its gold
and its gray,
The stars of its Winter, the dews o
And when we have done with our life
Dear Father, take care of thy chil

The above is from the Laurensville
Herald of June 10.
The Editor of The Herald and News
is delighted to know that the veteran
editor of the Lau'rensville Herald
will be one of the boys at the Press
association again this year. We de
sire to congratulate him upon his
good health and strength on his 78th
birthday and hope that he may live
many years more and be able to ren
Aer the same valuable, unselfish, self
sacrificing service to the country that
he has rendered for so many years.

If all the criticism they can make
of Congressman Lever is his vote oa
the lumber plank in the tariff bill he
has easy sailing. If that proposition
was presented to the voters we be
lieve it would come nearer defeating
some of those who voted opposite to
Mr. Lever than defeating Mr. Lever.
That is one proposition on which Mr.
Lever was entirely correct.
That public square aroand the old
court house is a disgrac-. to an in
telligent citizenship. Washed in gul
lies and ditches it looks worst thac
it did 30 years ago. It can never bE
made much better until the town de
cides to do some paving.
If Those newspaper editors who ex
ercise so much concern about their
neighbors and how they cond act their
business would devote their attention
and talents to their own business
and to the keeping of their owa con
sciences they would have about as
much as they could do. Take tly
they try to take the motes from
the eyes of their brothers.
The question now is not who orig- f
inated the movement for good roads b
but rather who is advocating and t]
working for the improven ent of our;
highways at this time. It is true, in
this as in other cases, that the man e
who was the pioneer -in the movement: a
rarely gets credit for anything that h
he has done, and if there are any hon- f
ors to go around or any benefit to
be handed out, a latter day convert is
usually the beneficiary. We have Of- b
ten seen that the case in other met- ti
ters of public interest and it will no n
doubt apply with equal force in the
matter of road building, but the main -
question after all is to get the roab. tj

-.Mountain Highway. g:
The people all over upper Carolina ci
are now, clamoring for a highway im- al
proved fronm the capital -city. Sev- h<
eral good roads meetings have been w
held as to which will be the best a]
route from Columbia. Union is fight
ing for the highway, just so with r
Laurens, Clinton and other points b
along the route. There can be lots Iw
of talk and many good roads meet- c
*ings. Much interest may be display- i
ed. The citizens of the Piedmont sec- tU
tion of the State may buihi the most
improved highway down as far as P
Newberry, for it has been agreed that d<
the "mountain highway" will go as ai
far as Newberry. From that pointm
its route has not been decided upon.

to Atlanta last year.
This run was made, necessarily go- b:

BATTIIIU FOR MULES.
The Shower Attachment Makes the
Long Ears Wag With Joy.
A concrete bathtub some 40 feet
long and a few inches more than four:
feet deep has been installed in the'
Henry colliery of the Lehigh Valley
Coal company at Plains, Pa., for the
accommodation of the mine mules.
This mine improvement is built at
the entrance of the mule barn, says
Popular Mechanics. The long eared
Lbeasts are pretty tired when they;
conclude the day's work, but when
they strike the bath all fatigue disap
pears and they rush in, crowding
each other for the deepest place in
Directly over it runs a perforated.
pipe, and when the mules have dis- I
ported themselves in the water in
the tub the shower bath is turned on.
The speed with which a mine mule
will hurry to the bath when the day's
work is over is proverbial, yet with
all their desire to get the second meal
of the day they have to be driven out
of the bath.
One old fellow is said to take much:
delight that no amount of coaxing
will get him to leave the tub until he
has had at least 10 minutes of the:
fun. Others will not leave the tub
until the shower is turned on, and it
seems that this feature is the most
enjoyable. Some of them, the mine
foreman says, will look at the at
tendants longingly and then swing
their heads appealingly toward the
spray pipe until some one turns it on.
The bath is expected to prolong the
vigor and vitality of the mules. Tbe
driver boys are the only workers in
the mine who are -not absolutely in
sympathy with the innovation, the
bath keeping them in the mine 10 or i
15 minutes longer than before, yet;
the enjoyment of their charges seems
even to offset this inconvenience to a
"Killing No Murder."
Probable the most daring political
pamphlet ever penned. was "Killing
No Murder," the work of Col. Ed
ward Saxby, in which he openly ad
vocated the assassination of Crom
well as a manifest blessing on the
ground that the life of the Protector
'had proved an unmitigated curse to
the nation. Saxby got his plea for
tyrannicide printed in Holland in 1657,
and managed'to smuggle a' number of
hopies Into England, where they were
The irony of the dedication to Crom
well himself is remarkable, the argu
ment stated In the most courteous
tone, being that, if Cromwell were
the' public-spirited man he professed
to be,, he ought to welcome sudden
death at the hand of a patriotically
disposed assassin. The writer then
goes on to. prove by quotations from
Scripture and from ancient and mod
ern authors that Croniewll is a true
type of tyrant, who deserves to be
annihilated on sight by any one to
whom, the opportunity of doing so
should present Itself. ! The. danger to
the Protector's life was very real; blit,
despite all sorts of plot, "strange
engines," and incendiarism,'he baffled
his foes and died a natural death.
It- is strange how history repeats
itself. A few weeks, 253 years after
the appearance of Saxby's pamphlet,
a publication with identically the
.same title of "Killing 'No Murder,"
was produced at Delhi, and openly ad
vocated the slaughter of the Feringh

awaits them. The specific weapons
of offence which It recommends are

ARE MICROBES IN YOUR SCALP!
[t Has Been Proved That Microbes
Professor Unna of Hamburg, Ger
muany, and Dr. Sabourand, the lead
ing French dermatologist, discovered
that a microbe causes baldness. Their
theory has time and again been amply
verified through research experiml~ents
carried on -under the observatin of
aminent scientists. This glicrobe
lodges in the Seburn, which isAthe na
Lural hair oil, and when per-mitted to
aourish it destroys the .haAr follicles
and in time the pores entirely close,
and the scalp gradually/takes on a
shiny appearance. When this hap
pens there is no hope of the growth
of hair being revived.
Dandruff is a coptagious disease,
which is.largely d:ue to a destructive
microbe, which when left to pursue
its course causes itching scalp, fall
lng ,hair and 'aldness. Dandruff is
caused by th,e microbe affecting the
glands which1 produce the sebaceous
matter, which latter then unnatural
ty dries up and scales off.
