>r\ rr>v Tact .nrHplp T asked YOU. deaf
reader, to think on these lines until
jou heard from me again. I am
afraid you have forgotten them so
I am going to quote them again.
L#isten. Read. Think:
^ "Believe not each accusing tongue
As most weak persons do,
But still believe that story wrong
IVVlhich ought not to be true."
Yah arp riot ^nin? to admit that you
are a weak person by believing every
accusing tongue, and yet if you will
stop to think you will be forced to
conclude that it is the weak person
as a rule tO?at is ready to believe each
r accusing tongue whether the story
is true or not and prefers to believe
what is not true. 0, poor, weak huIman
nature. How we love to roll
the sweet morsel of slander under
our tongues. And if we would just
roll it there and let it remain it
[wouldn't make so much difference but
ve roll it there and we roll out to
other tongues and they roll it on and
on and like a ball of snow the more
you roll tie bigger it gets.
I notice that some the papers
are saying if Manning were governor
there would be no race meet in Charleston
in December, and I reckon
there will be no liquor selling in Charleston
in January and foe other

there will be no stealing and no killing
and no gambling and no swindling
and no lying and no bearing false
witness and we will all be good little
children. Mr. Manning is going to
ihave a full grown man's job on 'tis
lands i: he makes all the people good
and all at once and if he enforces all j
the laws. If he does and the juries
convict we will soon fill up the penitentiary
again. All good people should j
bold up his hands and bid fcim god- j
speed in the bringing aoout law ana
order?I believe that is what we
want. According to the solicitor of
this circuit there is less crime in Xew
berry than there was When he first
came on the circuit. But if we don't
get what we want we will pass a law.
P| That's the way to get It. I'll bet ny
last summer's panama?there you are
I'm offering to violate the law myself?but
I'll risk a bei on my old rnat
that the very best men in this town
of Newberry and tee loudest in their
acclaim for law and order violate |
I some law or ordinance every day tney
come down town. They*,may be do
s.- not do so intentionally, but there are
so many blamed laws to regulate our
conduct in this 20tc' century advanced
civilization that ycu just can't
"help being a violator of law.
Now I hear thai every one nearb*has
to pay some sort of war tax and
I'll bet again that half of t'".:e people

they are liable to this tax and no
doubt will have to pay a penalty for
their ignorance. The newspapers, of
course, s-ould publish all the information
about this special tax for the
' love o.' doing it, while the government
employs a lot of pets to go around *t
a big salary to collect it and put the
penalty on. Xo, I will take back
the word "pets" because all the men
of the department of whom I have
heard are clever young gentlemen and
I'- I am pleased that they have a job.
Then Gov. Heyrward is a fine man,
sc I have been to^d, and I have no
dc ,'>t it is correct.1"" But really I Lave
litard i lot o:" people making inquiry
about mis war tax, or whaever they
call it, and t'.'.ey want to obey the
law but they don't exactly know what
the law is and yet the government
says that ignorance of t'.e law is no
excuse and there has Deen no way of
telling the people what the law is except
the voluntary publications in t'-e

sian Poland still is the center otf interest
in t?e '.var situation so far as
military operations are concerned. Reports
from the rival -headquarters indicate
that any decisive result o*.
either side still is in the balance, although
on the face of the known facts
the conviction is growing that the German
general MacKenzen has done at
least wha^ Bazaine, in the FrancoPrussian
war failed to do at Metz?fce
saved his army after it was encircled
by the enemy.
But it is equally clear that tfae German
tactical plan for t!:e taking of
Warsaw again has failed, according to
the previling opinion in England.
Whether a counter invasion of Silesia

present remain^ to be seen.
Little activity along the Austrian
front is reported. An exception is the
accprtinn frnm ViPTVnn of an Alistt!21i
victory with the capture of quantities
of prisoners and munitions of war
along the southern line, but there is
nothing to indicate t?hat Russia has ,
given way in her evident intention of
invading tDe -rich German provinces
by way of Cracow. Later official reports
from Vienna declared t:at calm
prevailed on the Cracc?w front, but
that the fighting continued in the Carpathians.

df the German Reichstag is attracting
much attention. Many members of
tll:e Reichstag, a large number of them
in uniform, already ave gathered in
Berlin in anticipation of this important

provide a new war loan.
Quiet prevails along the western
front, but alraming news has been rer.pived
