Spartanburg is talking about a ;
"Great Whi;e Way." Watch Xewber-'
ry. We are going to have one snon.
What is the bark committee doing? j
Don't wait for the "psychological mo- j
ment." Make it. Remember the fel- \
low who was always waiting for some- j
thing to turn up.
We would give half week's wages ,
to see John Grace go in the office
of the The Oaffney Ledger and try to :
dictate to Ed DeCamp as to what his :

Tut, tut. 'We are surprised that you,
an apostle of peace, should so desire
to engage the president of the Press
Association in battle.
In old (lays it was an argument in
favor of dancing to say that two hours'
dance was equal to five miles walk- \

If mat be true the tango should be
encouraged in this age of encouraging j
a:hletic sports. To climb one hundred j trees
an evening would be taking some ,

That is a correct statement and
should be th!e estimate, but many <
times it falls for short in this day. i
The world judges your success and 1
your character largely by what you
If the ">A. B. C." mediators should
bring peace and settled conditions in ^
Mexico, they will have accomplished j
a great work. Every loyal American \ i
will hope that the policy of the administration
through the whole mat- j ^
ter has been for the best. Deep dowii i
in our hearts, however, some of us i
must confess to ourselves that we be- j ]
lieve that a little more decided policy j i
in fhe beginning would have been; <
productive of better results. ! ^
Burns, the star detective, seems to J
have met with trouble in Frank-Fagnn
case in Atlanta. The solicitor made it
pretty hot for him in cross examina- j '
tion and Burns admitted that he had '
been much hiqdered in his i.ivesti- 1
gation of the case.?Spartanburg 1
It has not been so many suns since '
some people over this way and Spar
cani/U'g ?<xy were pruuiaiiiiing wnat ,
a great agency the Burns Detective <
Agency was. To say he was "much | '<
hindered" is probably the most chari- :
THE PRIMARY. !
The coun:y conventions are over, <
and the next move on the political I1
checker board will be the State con-!
vention on the 20th of this month. 'J
The result or :he county conven-; ^
tions has not been a. surprise to those ; j
who have watched affairs political in ^
this State. Two vpars asri thprp u-aq i
a determined effort, which was sue- j
cessful, on the part -of those who j
were in the minority so far as the pri- i (
inary vote was concerned, to secure j
control of the county conventions, and;
thereby to gain control of the State
convention and of the party machin-1 (
ery. A similar effort this year seems ! (
to have met with success. j1
There will, of course, be an effort j*
in the State convention to place re(
strictions around the primary. It is:
naraiy probable, however, that the j State
convention will interfere with J ]
the present primary rules. All of us <
are in favor of an honest vote and an I *
honest count. We are all against cor
ruption, and bribery and repeating. .
Some Democrats, however, want to (
place restrictions around :he primary 1
which will exclude white men from;c
participating in the white man's pri- :
mary and casting their ballots for the ; ?
men of their choice. We do not be- U
lieve this will be done. Certainly 12
there could be no more effective way \
of destroying the primary.
We have stringent laws on our |
statute books now to safeguard pri- j
mary and other elections in this b ate.
These laws ought to be rigidly enforced.
If an attempt is made to corrupt
a voter, that attempt ought to be
severely punished, and if there is any j
o.her violation of the statctes it ought j
to be punished. Bui the white citizens j
of this State should have the right to j

One of the newspapers which is so :
insistent upon having the primary re-'
srricted says that "under the existingj
primary rules, a fair primary can not
be had." "We have not so low an op-!
inion of the people of South aCro- i
lina. Of course there are going to be !
attempts to violate any rules or any |
laws relating to elections, as in oth- j
ers matters. But laws can be made |
which will protect white men in their |
right to vote without taking away from 1
them that right. And we have such ;
laws in this State now.
WHY STARS SHOOT
Meteors Falling Toward Sun are Btirn-;
ed by Earth's Friction.
Each so-called shooting star is'
merely a cold little meteor which is
moving around the sun in its own path !
just as the immensely larger comet j
and planets are doing, says St. Xich-1
On the average these particles are
moving about 26 miles a second when'
they are at the distance 2'icm ihe sun j
tuat the ear.t is, and flie earth y, [
self is moving 18 1-2 miles a. second
the bodies are sure to collid? with a
If the earth runs into the particle in !
such a way as to overtake it, it will,
strike out air with a speed of only
ibout eight miles a second; if They
meet "head on," so to speak, they may'
:ome together wirh a speed of 44 miles
In either case, the friction of the air 1
Dn the cold particle, as this plows 1
:hrough the air, instantly heats ir. up 1
to a heat so great that it is vaporized
and appears *o us as a shooting star, j
The reason why liitle meteoric
particles are moving so vefy swiftly in '
:he first place is simply-because they!
ire falling toward the sun.
If you could carry a stone many mil- i
lions -of miles away from the ea*rth and j
:here let it drop, it would begin to fail j
:oward the earth very slowly, but as it i
[ell it would continually move faster j
md faster, until when it finally struck ;
:he ear:h it would be moving no less j
:han seven miles in each second.
In exactly the same way each of the ;
litle meeoric particles away off in!
space began long ago to feel the pull.j
Dr "gravitation' of our ^ua ana to faU
:oward thai body.
If the meteorite and the sun had j
boih been at rest at first, the meteorite j
would have simply fallen into our i
sun; but as our sun is moving through
space at the rate of 11 miles in each
second the meteorite will not hit it ex- ^
ictly, but will miss it and begin to :
swing around it in a curved uath.
As the sun is so much larger than 1
he earth, its pull is very much greater.
If you could visit the sun, you,
tvould find when there that you weigh- '
id more than 27 times as much as you .
tveigh on the earth.
This great pull -of the sun on eacii j
side of the meteorites makes them fall
irery swiftly, indeed; it is because the'
pull is so strong that when they have
:allen toward the sun to the place ;
yheer the earth is we find them mov- '
ng 26 miles in a single second.
U. S. GREATEST OIL PRODUCER j1
California's Outpnt Alone Was 100,'
000,000 Barrels Lajjt Year.
Once more the twelve months' pro
?ress may be reviewed in comparative .
ietail without referring more than1
jasually to fields other than those!.
which have claimed the principal ai:ention
for several years pas:, says the
London Times. The United States easily
maintains its pre-eminent position
as producer. The producer of ^
approximately 30,000.^0u metric tons
represents 63 per cent of the world's
output. The increase during the past .
rear has been of very moderate dimen- j
sions. California, which otherwise is \
nost favorably situated to contribute | <
o the increase, is hampered by the <
iifficulty of reaching outside markets.; j
impatiently it is awaiting the opening!
)f the Panama canal to pour its accu- j <
nulated stocks of 50,000,000 barrels! (
md its immense reserves which are' i
>:ill underground into eastern markets
jut already the highest authorities-;
ire foreshadowing the time when the 11
stream of oil through the pipe lines
will be reversed to meet the requirement
of the Pacific coast.
Last year's California output is estimated
at nearly 100,000,000 barrels, an
increase of 10 per cent. The importance
attached to this field may be
gauged from the anxiety of the Royal
Dutch-Shell Transport group to ob
tain :i footing where ;he Standard Oil
company has hi herto reigned supreme.
Other additions to ;he output
of the Uni.ed States are expected
from :he midcontinental fields of
Oklahoma and Kansas, only the
fringes of which have as yet been
tapped. Indeed, every single producing
district on the comment may be
said to be increasii^g its 'Output. Fev/\

WORLD'S EM) BY FIRE.
Scientist Tells Results When Sea's
Bottom Gives >Yav.
When the bottoih of the sea gives
way from some future volcanic dis
turbance the whole earch will be consumed
in flames, just as other worlds
every day are being consumed, according
to Louis Radourdin, the
French scientist. Recent volcanic disturbances
lead this scientist o believe
that such a rime is not far distant.
The earth's crust is very thin
at the bottom of the sea, he says, and
toe adds that the floor on which we
srand is more frail than we are led to
Mr. Rabourdin imagines a disaster
so great as to involve the whole earth.
If such a a event should occur he
thinks that from a distant world its
appearance and progress would exactly

Mr. Rabourdin says: "Suppose that

sea bottom should give, and, falling
suddenly, should let in the mass of the
ocean's waters upon the incandescent

would burn and it would burn more as
it had access to more oxygen. The
conflagration would thus gfip gradually

the earth's crus:, would probably be
displaced. (The earth, passing through
a critical epoch and returning for the

the 'eighteenth century, the region was
a vast hunting ground for many large
tribes of the south, north and east,
and be:ween these tribes there was
contiguous conflict for the possession!
of the rich game privileges. Later on, i
\vh?n the white people settled in the'
territory, their struggle with the red !
men was more bitter and persistent i
than in almost any other section of i
the continent; hence the sanguinary'
name fhat was given to the territory, \
