It seems that South Carolina is go- |
ing to get the national aid for the
militia and not muster out ten or fifteen
companies. The&e companies that j
did not come up to some of the technical
requirements of the law are
going to be given three months in
which to comply. Of course, until
they do come up they will not get any
of the money. It is a good thing that

The old vets are having a hot time |
of it at Gettysburg, but we bet they
are having a good time at the same
time. Here's to 'em.

any drag has been used in the county.
It costs so little and it does so much
good the wonder is the people who are
most interested will not use it more.
Maybe it is too simple and inexpensive.

who was going to call a meeting

official cotton grader. We guess lie is ,
right, but somehow we do not like this '
tendency for everything to 'be run by :
the government. We read a book J
many years ago which was called ,
Looking Backward, in which the posi- <
tion was taken that the time was com- i

and when we got too old to work the ^
government would take care of us. <
That time seems to be approaching <
very rap-idly. It may be the ideal government,
but somehow we always
thought the people made the government,
ana that such a condition
would wipe out all individuality and
all ambition and all self-reliance.
Our notions may be all too oldtimey ,
for this progressive and enlightened
age. Everybody now seems to want
a public job of some kind, it matters
not much or what it pays, or whether
lie is fitted to fill it or not, and maybe ,
when the time comes 'when we are all

That was a terrible arraignment our
cotemporary made of his brethren of
the press in his last issue. They may
he bought by the railroads, as he '
charges, and they may be tools of the 1
corporations, but we don't believe it.
We think there ar- probably a few
honest ones left. It may be that the j.
only honest ones are the few who do ;

rapid changes are in order. They say j
the world is growing better, but every- j
thing now must be regulated by law |
and the old doctrines that every man;

proven .guilty is reversed in this modern
and progressive age, and now ;
every man is suspected as a grand
rascal until he proves the contrary. \
and even then the presumption is i

have been more generally observ-ed if
the people of the city and county had
known more about it. The entertainments

We are satisfied that the financial end
would have been much more satisfactory
if the people generally had
known more about the entertainment
and the entertainers. As a matter of
fact, it was not as thoroughly adverf

are satisfied if it should be put on an- J

will prove a financial success.

Hail Storm Rips Cotton Crops.
Johnston, June 30.?The section of j
country between here and Edgefield j
was struck by a hail storm Saturday j
evening and some parts of it the crops I
were completely destroyed. The
heaviest of it was on (). W. Wright,
W W. Doby, J. M. Wright, J. W.
Batcher, L. M. Clark, Chas. Turner,!
r. A. Broadwater and C. P. Kirkland. j
Cotton is trimmed up and some has :
Qot a leaf left on the stalk, while i
some may sprout out, but can't pos- ;
sibly make a half crop on what they
have. Corn is split up and the blades
look like shoe strings and is damaged j
to a large extent. The storm was
severe on others, but not as hard as
an those mentioned.
Nearly 50,000 Marooned.
New York, June 30.?Nearly 50,000
persons were marooned on Rockaway ;
Beacn all night oy nrc wrmcn destroyed
part of the trestle connecting
the resort with Long Island. The
flames started from a short circit on
the third rail of the Long Island railroad
while a train crowded with 600
passengers was crossing the long
trestle over Jamaica Bay. Tne rear
car of the train caught fire and there
was a. wild scramble among the passengers
to get foothold on the trestle.
Hundreds of men, women and childdren
picked their way over the ties to
About 300 feet of the trestle burned.
How Errors Get xnto Newspapers.
Atlanta, June 30.?The newspapers
which nrinted that "many young la
dies particapted in the American;
iynching" when the telegrams should !
have read "many young lads," had
distinguished precedent for their unintentional
error. Some of the biggest
"bulls" in the history *>f world j
journalism have occurred in that
lAbout a y-ear and a half ago very !

It was later learned that th-e way

I ITALY'S TICE CONSUL
DIES AT CHARLESTON j
Charleston, June 28.?Giovanria 1
Sottile, vice consul for Italy, died suddenly
this morning at his handsome
residence in Rutledge avenue. A
stroke of paralysis was the cause of
death. For several months Mr. Sot- J
til? has been in poor health, and only
recently he returned from Hot Springs .
and Johns Hopkins, where he had
bf:en under treatment. He was at
| the Isle of Palms last night, returning |(
| at midnight. He was a native of Pa:
lermo and was 47 years of age. He
'was given an order of knighthood of
his country by the king recently. He
[ is survived by a widow, four children,
mother and four brothers. He was
of a genial and hospitable disposition
and had many friends here. ^
MARRIED BY WRONG PARTY.
Lexington Couple Found They Were
>"ot Married.?Former Notary
Made License to Order.
Lexington, June 30.?That the ^
course of true love never runsjsmooth
was exemplified here Thursday,
when Walter Aiken and Miss
Iva Lanier went through the mar-jt
riage ceremony for the second tim* j J
in two weeks. Some time ago when
this couple decided to go down life's
read together, they went to a man
who claimed to be a notary public.
Being without a license, this pretended
officer proceeded to write on?, and ;
then and there performed what he
all-eged the marriage ceremony. He
charged Aiken $2.50 for the license,
75 cents for marrying him and 75 i j"
cents for putting the notice in the
paper. The happy couple went their j J
way'rejoicing, thinking everything'
had been done properly; but before j
they knew it Aiken was arrested and j
placed in jail on the charge of ab-i
Solicitor Timmerman took up the i ,
case and conferred with the girl's L
mother in Columbia. Now it appears i
that the ceremony was performed by | ^
a man who had, once upon a time i
been a notary public, but whose com- i
_ _ . ? _ S
mission nad long since been revoKeaig
by the governor. Upon hearing of
that, the mother claimed that the
whole thing was illegal. The solicitor
assured her that the would-be notary
was in error, but that the wed- ding
contract would hold before the ij
law; but that did not satisfy careful
mama. The obliging solicitor then j
told the mother that he would re- Q
turn to Lexington with the young t(
people and there secure the proper ^
license, and that he himself would 1 &
perform the ceremony according to ^
law. This he did in the office of I
Probate Judge Drafts, with all due ~
dignity and solemnity. After all this the
lovers are sceptical, ancl are yet
afraid that something will come up s
to separate th-em.
Vast Sum Spent For Moving Pictures. c
New York, June 30.?-The nickels a
spent during the past year to se^r the t
"movie" shows total 6,680,000,000 or
$319,000,000 paid by 3,600,000,000 spec- b
tators, according to an official count. *
It is also shown that over $30,000,000 ^
is invested in the moving picture in- c
dustry, that more than 200,003 persons a
are employed and that 10,000,000 feet ^
of picture films are produced weekly.
Killed, by Lightning, li
Greensboro, N. C., June 30.?With a
his key in his front door m the act of d
entering his home Saturday night, W. d
J. Fausett was killed by lightning on li
South Dairy street, this city. Neigh- ; t;
bors found his dead body on "he porch j
yesterday morning. ( a
Mr. Fausett was 65 years old and '
lived alone. Saturday night he had^u
visited his cousin, W. P. Thompson, a j s
half block away, and when the storm j li
came on, he said he must go at once, ! 1
and left. Shortly afterward there d
were three heavy detonations from A
the cloud and the house was struck,
as was discovered later. r?he body
was found lying on its back, with a E
small hole in the hat brim a:id a scar
on the temple, and burns on the chest.
