probable that tiLe race for governor
will be fought out between Governor 1
Blease and Chief Justice Jones--both
natives of Newberry, and one now at
the head of the executive department
of the government and the other at the:
head of the judicial department Of the
govrnment. Chief Justice Jones lived
in Newberry until he was abou,,t 24
years of age, when he moved to _n-i
caster. There are no doubt others be
sides Chief .ustice .sones who won
like to oppose Governor Blease, but
they will in all probability be kept:
out of the race by the cry of the nec
essity of concentrating ipon one man
to overwhelm the Blease forces. Th ft
seems to b- the slogan which is now
.baeing urged. leports were going the
rounds that Mr. John G. Richards and
ex-Lieuteant Governor McLeod and
possibly others would be in the race,
but unless conditions change it is
hardly probable that they can stand
the present hue and cry.
The kesignation of Chief Justicel
Jones will make another vfacancy on
the supreme bench. A constitutional
admendent ratified by the people in
the election last year increased the
number of supreme court justices from
four to fire, but the last legislature,,
becoming deadlocked on the election
of the fifth justice, aclourned without
electing, postponing the election until
the next session. Circuit Judges R.
C. Watts, of Cheraw, and R. W.- Mem
min<ger, of Charleston, and Represen
tative T. B. Fraser, of Sumter, were
the principal candidates in that race.
T is altogether vrobable that one of
the preelt associate justices will be
-ronmoted to the position of chief jus-i
tic= >acated bv Chief Justice Jones,'
Pn. as Associate Justice Eugene B.
Gary, of Abbeville. is the senior asso
elate justice, the chlnces seem largely,
to favor his e*ection as chief justice.
As.isQTte Tustice C. A. Woods, of Ma
rion. however. has been endorsed by
the bar of his. home town, and Assoj
ciae .T,tice Hydrick, of Spartanburg,
has been mentioned in the press as a
ennia+e who is %eInz ureed. Now
ever this may be, there will be two
place- to ,be filled on the supreme
bench, and as it is altogether probable
that one of the associate justices will
be chosen to take Chief Justice Jones'
-place-as stated. Associate Justice
Gary, in all likelihoo't-th1e next legis
lature will have the choosing of two
associate justices upon its hands.
As there are for practically all the
offices to be filled in South Carolina,
there are a number of- candidates be
i,--\ng urged for these two supreme court
positions. With an additional place to
be filled, it seems hardly probable that
there will be any more can didates for!
the position for wh'ch Judge Watts,
Judge Memminger and Re)resentative
Fraser are candida%es. Fo:r the other
position the names w'hen have beer.
mentioned are numerous, inclading
several of the present circuit judges.
Among .them Judge Thos. S. Sease, of
Newberry. Attorney W. 0. Miller, of'
Charleston, and others, are also being
urged by their friends. -
At the coming session of the legis
lature the terms of Judge Robert Ald-.
rich, of the second circuit; Judge J.
W. DeVore, .of,f the eleventh, circuit,
and Judge S. .". G. Shipp, of the
twelftd1 circuit, expire; so that it' will
be necessary for the legislature to en
.ter into the election of~three circuit
judges. There are many other ,offices
to be filled 'in the primary next sum
.mer, and the indications are tnat there
will be sonme hot contests for some of
the offices less important than gover
-nor and UTnited States senator.
Sizing up the whole :situation, it
seems that the next legislature and
the people of the State generally next
~summer will haV'e contests of sufficient
number and heat-to satisfy the m'ost
SDAT OF MIRACLES NOT PASSED.
-Woman 70 Years Old Growing New Set
of Teethi-Nrs. L. C. McQuinn, of
Gaffney, Sept. 15.- t has been said
that the day of miraels s is past, but it~
*would seem that somet'ing near to a:
miracle has actually con.e to pass in
Gaiffney. This statement a ~ay seem to
be rather remgrkable, but the follow

The bare fact, plamnly stated, is that
Mrs. L. C. McQuinri, who lives on
Limestone street, 70 years and sc me
months old, without -teeth for fbur
teen years, is now growing a full set;
of good teeth.
A reporter yesterday went to the
home of Mrs. McQuinn, and asked con-1
cerning the teeth. "Granny7* as the,
old lady is known, stated most em
phatically, when questioned by 'the re
porter, that she was indeed growing
some new teeth, and when some doubt;
was expressed by the news-gatherer,
Granny very obligingly opened her
mouth and sk6wed eight fully develop
ed teeth. The swoiten condition of
th gums seemed to indicate that still
more were on the way, and all indica
tions are that she will shortly have a
"Granny" stated that she discov
ered the coming of her teeth while in
a hospital in Norfolk, Va., where shE
was undergoing treatment. She stated
that the pains began to manifest them
selves and on one occasion she asked
the attending physician to examine hei
mouth and see just what the troublE
was. The doctor did so'and announc
ed to "Granny'' that, she was aga1
growing some teeth. "Gran
ny" with charming naivete, stated tha
n1 one could understand the pain thai
litte children had to undergo whilc
cutting teeth until they passed througi
an experience sinilar to hers.
The case is said to be without a pa
ralle], and certain it is that such a
one has never been brought to ligh
in Cherokee county.

BIGGEST ROBETI?Y ON R,EC41 .
Montreal Bank Roimed of $315,000
Big Safe Wrecked.
Westminster, B. C.,-Sept. 15.-Threa
robbers, who took $315,000 enry today
ifrom the Bank of Montreal's local
branch and thereby perprtrated the
hlrgest "successful" safe-blowing re
corded in America, are believed to be
hiding tonight in Vaicouver. B. C.,
awaiting the chance to dispose of Their
booty undetected. D3ank officials assert
all bills takkn by the bandits were new
; and were of large denominations and
that their serials are recorded at the
bank. The gold taken can not be trac
ed so directly.
Besides timing the robbery to match
the visit of the night watchman, it de
veloped today that the trio selected a
time when the bank's cash supply was
far above normal, for the financing of
salmon shipments of the canning sea
son now closing.
Use of Odd Lenglns in Lumber.
Washington, D. C. Sept.-The inves
tigation carried on last year by the
United States dep.-ment of aricul-l
ture, cooperating wit lumber manu
facturers in the South, to determine
the saving that can be effected by us
ing odd lengths 0: Iumr r as well as
even, has begun to bear fruit. That
investigation showed that a material
saving was practicable, and at a re
cent meeting of a Southern lumber
m 3nanufACturlers' as4ociation the fact
was brought out that a beginning has
been made in putting the new plan
into practice, and that an increase in
the sale of odd lengths is anticipated
Afor the near future.
It was formerly the custom, and
generally is so still, to sell lumber in
even lengths only. Waste resulted
from cutting off the ends of odd
lengths to make thein even. A consid
erable percentage of a sawmill's out
put is defective. That is, boards have
had knots, decayed spots, or split ends,
and the defective parts are cut out. To
make an even length of what remains,
it is often necessary to cut off a foot
of good wood with the ba'd, and it is
wasted. The practice of marketing
odd lengths as well as even is meant
to lessen this waste. ,The sale of odd
lengths of lumber will frequently les
sen waste in the woods also: for ex
amu]e, a log may be c1:t fifteen i.eet
long which, following the old custom
would be cut only~ fourKeen and the
~extra. feet ,would be left in: the woods.
The introguction /of odd lengths
meets with oppositon from many
builgers who are i rejLdiced in favot
of eten lengths simply because they
have neVer used aniy other kind. Nev
erdthleless, there are many places in
which odd lengths are more economi
cal than even ones-for instance,
where nine-foot studding is used. Fol
lowing former custom, the ends must
be cut from even lengths to make the
timbers fit. Some manufacturers, of
'flooring successfully sell odd and even
