five-year sentence of Mr. Milton A.
Carlisle, of Newberry, to one year and
a day. Governor Blease sent the following
telegram to the president:
"Hon. Woodrow Wilson, President of
< the United States,
"Washington, D. C.
"WJhat you have done for Milton A.
Carlisle, of Newberry, is highly appreciated.
The remainder is so small j
that t VAonAst. not. so much on his i
own account, but for his good Christian
wife, his children and his little
grandchildren, and to save them from
the stain of the disgrace, that you issue
parole, so chat the name may not
f have to be entered upon the penitentiary
records. I feel that Carlisle has
teen punished sufficiently for what he
may have done and am appealing for
+-'n Tirin cm iff or- mnrp than he.
\ nuv n uuu.vi v
Action on your part relieving him of
sentence, under .parole, will be ap^
preciated by all his friends and I believe
will meet with the approval of
all the people of South Carolina. So
far as Carlisle himself is concerned,
it is believed here that one year will
be as fatal to him as five.

^ Washington, July 11.?President
Wilson today commuted to one year
and a day the five-year sentence of

application of the funds of the National

L Carlisle, who is 73 years old, has not
f yet served any of his term and the
president commuted the sentence with
r the privilege of reconsideration at
any time it appeared that continued
Imprisonment would dangerously impair
the prisoner's health.

for the entire loss. Friends of the
prisoner wanted him pardoned on ae'
count of his age. The trial judge and

<S> THE IBLIli. ^
I hear that the civic association is
really going to try ,to do something?
yes, really going to help the trustees
and the city to make beautiful parks
around the Speers street school and
the Boundary street school. Or maybe
arrange playgrounds for the children.
All very good and commendable,
i am really sorry for people who are
n-e^r sighted and some who are blind.
I c'.on't mean a physical defect when
I refer to near sightedness, or blindness,
for I would not parade the physical
defects of a.ay one, and, by the
way, some of those who have this
sort of blindness can see further
through a mill stone than any one
you ever saw with good eyesight
Well, I was just thinking about the
civic association and what it could
have accomplished since I have been I
helping it, for the past several years,
if it just had the pluck to go ahead
arid do things. I am not criticizing,
and am not personal, because I do not
know who the officers are, nor who
the members are, nor how much mon-j
ey the organization has on hand, but^
I do know that if any number of good
women, such as we have in Newberry,
would only band themselves togeth-er
and determine to do something worth
while there is nothing could stop
them, and they would soon have the
men interested and at work, but it
takes determination and bull dog tenacity
to do things in this town. What
I started out to say is if only the association
would take aold of something
worth while, such as a park for
the town,- if they had don-e so since
1 1 ?? r\ KaII 4" it thp
We I13V6 06611 LiliMug auuui> xvj ww
park would have been built. I hate
to see the old town go backward and
the people pulling apart instead of
together. 0, well, what's the use. It
is not all worflh while to worry about,
and I am not worrying, but I will tell
you now and then how it strikes me,
and let me assure^you that it makes
nn difference to me whether you act
on my suggestions, or take them seriously
or not. I can get out of this
town as quick as any of these fellows
that are going off, but I am going to.
stay right here, and the next time you
hear from me I will be right here at
tLe same old place.
There is one thing worth while mentioning,
there is no place on top the
globe, or underneath the spreres,
where a rumor derogatory to one of
the citizens will traivel any faster or
gather force as it goes more rapidly, j
Tho niH thr^p hi ark crows story that
you used to read in the blue back j
speller is/ not a circumstance and is |
absolutely obsolete in this rapid transit
town, g.nd I don't think I ever saw
a place where there were so many
good people who took delight in keeping
an unkind remark traveling, and
seeing "hcfw' fast it could travel. The
speed lust of the fastest motorcyclist
is not a small circumstance. The
only way I can account for it is that I
we have so many ladies ana geuue- i
men of leisure they have to give attention
to their neighbors. But what's
the use. ^et's talk about something
I was trying to sleep a little the
other day right after a fairly good
dinner?I mean good for me?and the
flies wer very annoying and I was
wondering why the fly. Why the
gnat. Why the other annoying insects.
Everything was created for a
purpose. I was thinking about the
good old days before the war when
we had the flies and the old fashioned
peafowl fly brush. And the good
lady of the house would hold the baby
in one arm and swing the old fly brush
and eat dinner as best she could, and
you never heard her complain. And
you never heard about the germs and
the bacteria and that sort of ^hing.
and people lived just about as long
as they do now. Now we swat the fly
and we screen the hou?e arid we buy
flies by the peck and we must get rid
of them. I see some fellow has invented
a fly trap that will catch them
by the peck. While I was trying to
sleep and fighting the fly at the same
tim-e, I thought the fiy was put here
to keep me from sleping in the day
time, and then I read the following
apostrophee to the fly, and I said,
Oh, fly! oh, pesky fly, with eye full
Thou art enough to cause one suicide,
As thou doth every means to thwart'
1 thee quite deride
And laaughest at the swatter and the
Oh, fly, bowed down with cholera and
Thy buzz does bring distraction to our
'And to our ey-es the brine and salty
Is there no way to get thee on the hip
And do thee and thy progeny up
Oh, fly I thou curse of weather that is
In vain we sputter, fume and chase
And I said, all right fly. go it. I'll
do the best I crfn, but swats and
screens can't just yet keep you out, and
you must be here for some purpose
or you wouldn't be. What the purpose,
I don't know. We are getting
too curious anyhow. And then I read
"Seeker for Happiness, go as a pilgrim
and find these: A child who is
not curious, a man who is not greedy,
and a woman who is not vain. When
thou s;halt find these, thou wilt find
f Happiness in their company." And I
I concluded that it was about true. I
would add a few more things necessary
but another time.
