OF THE MEDICAL COLLEGE OF

Special to The Herald and News
Columbia, Oct. 6.?Dr. W. G. Houz-seal,
of Newberry, has been appointed
by Governor Blease a member of the
board of trustees of the Medical college
of the State of South Carolina.
to succeed Hon. Henry P. Williams,
ot Charleston. wno nas resigiieu. nu.
Williams at the time of his election
on the board of trustees was one, of
the harbor commissioners of the port
of -Charleston. Upon investigation, he
1 found that he could not legally hold
r both positions, and that by accepting
the position on the medical collegt
board he vacated his position as har- j
bor commissioner. On account of the
? ?nf.?Hinor frftm !V> i-C CI YtPPTl

years service as harbor commissioner,
he preferred to retain that position,
and resigned from the board of trustees
and was relppointed harbor commissioner
by Governor Blease.
The board of trustees of the State
\ Medical college are elected by the
. general assembly, but the governor
ft lias the power to fill a vacancy until
the general assembly meets.
Dr. Houseal is one of the leading !
physicians in South Carolina, and his j
business qualifications, combined with I
<his professional ability, will make j
him a peculiarly valuable member of i
the board of trustees. He is the personal
physician of the governor in
Newberry, and came to Columbia with
Governor Blease when he was first in
augurated, the governor, on account
? of a spell of sickness, needing the at- j
tention of a physician at that time.
The medical college on October 1
began its first session^ as a State in- j

Governor Blease late Saturday af- j
ternoon paroled a negro who first at-1
tracted the governor's attention some J
time ago by his faithful work and .'his !
unfailing politeness and obedience oj j
i the xState House grounds. The gover- j
* nor looked into the negro's case and j
found that he had been sent up from j
Georgetown county nearly ten years
ago tor life for breaking inio a negro's
house and stealing five dollars
in money and some clothes?the total
value of /the property stolen being
about twelve dollars, the cha'rge being
t burglary and larceny. Josh Gads'
<ie.., the negro, had no money to employ
a lawyer to seek a pardon, and
L no friend -had enough interest in him
Y to bring his .case to the attention of
t me chief executive. He is suffering
from Bright's disease, which of course
is aggravated by confinement and lack
of proper diet. After looking into the
case thoroughly, the governor decided |
that, under all the circumstances, the
negro had been amply punished, and
he was paroled during 'his good beI

that Adjutant General Moore would

that uapi. j. tfrosi waiKer, jr., mem- j

ZACHRY IS SEEKING
Making Efforts to Get His Wife to
Return to Shelter of His Roof. j
Augusta, Ga., Oct. 5.?It developed
yesterday that Judge H. C. Hammond
has been withholding -his decision in
the Zachry case, presumably at the
request of Julian J. Zachry. pending
a" reconciliation, between the parents
of tb? two little girls, Frances and
Mildred Zachry, which, however, Mrs.
Zachry today declared to be hopeless
"I will, never consent to a reconciliation)
wdth Mr. Zachry under any
circumstances in life unless that
should be absolutely the last and only
chance I should ever have of seeing
my children again," Mrs. Zachry determinedly
declared. She refused to
attend a conference between Judge
Hammond and Juliam J. Zachry at
Judge Hammond's home this morning,
and both: she and her attorney,
C. E. Dunbar, declare, unreservedly
that she has not requested a delay in
Her attorney declares that the ru- i
mors which have been circulated that
Mr. and Mrs. Zachry will live together
agaim are maliciously intend- .
ed to injure her case, and that
Zachry is seeking a reconciliation
merely "for getting her and the children
and killing the grounds of her
right in the case/'
"Only after I have appealed to the
supreme court again and every other
court in my fight for my little girls
and have been turned down by the-n
all, will I ever consent to go back as

"I am asking for its publication,''

A Great Howl.
"We have had a great howl in the j
senate about the inequality and injustice
of the income tax. Some East- j
or,- cormtnrc have lamented the wrong
done to their constituents, the well
groomed and well fed millionaires,
who will have to contribute to the expenses
of running t>N? government because
of this tax. They have spoken
''about the injury done their 'people'
?'my people' collectively?seemingly
unconscious of the fact, which is very
patent to any one, that while the
well-to-do in New England and the
Middle West will bear most of the
burden of the income tax, these very
men have been robbing their fellow
citizens, the working men, and keeping
them poor. These rich men have
systematically milked the poor man's
cow in the East just as constantly as
they have milked the farmer's cow in
the West and South, but they have
been shrewd enough to make, him be
lieve the contrary, iney -oiivt: aypealed

of "power, and have succeeded until
the last election. I
"I do not believe that these poor I
men can be bamboozled^ into voting
against -our democratic president and
his policies by any such claptrap or
illogical appeals. The time is coming
very rapidly when the poor men
everywhere will line up at the ballot
box against wrong and ^oppression

'goldbugs' promised all sorts of bless- j

the high cost of living continues to
climb and the poor people are getting
more and more restless. Some of
them are almost desperate, and hope
less of any relief.

Forage Crops and Meat Production.
The cost of all kinds of meat is in
crea'sing from year to year. The chief
reason for this is that meat production
is not keeping pace with the demand,?
from an increase in population,?in
fact, the beef supply in this country
is less than a year ago.
The South consumes a great deal
of meat,?and this same section produces
a mighty sma11 per cent, of the j

North and West.
If all our farmers would raise enough
hogs, etc., to supply their own meat, it
would insure a more prosperous condition
throughout the South, since
thousands of dollars leave eac-h- county
of the South annually for these

The greatest economy in! meat production
is obtained through the use of
suitable grazing crops as a supplement
to grain feeding.

stock without first carefully planning I
for the necessary forage crops. It
