The meeting of the committee was

B. Butler of Cherokee, W. R. Richey,
Jr., of Laurens and A. E. Padgett of
Edgefield a special committee to viitrciv
the returns from the second primary
election, as prepared by Halcott B.
Thomas, acting secretary.
When the committee reported, Mr.
Richey said that he hud signed the
report but could not vote for its adoption.

on information and belief, the use of
whiskey and money in favor ofl Mr.
Manning. Six members voted against
declaring Mr. Mhnning the nominee.
Thirty-one members voted in favor of
the nomination of Mr. Manning.
Those voting against the adoption of

W. R. Richey, Jr., of Laurens,
Harry H. Blease of Newberry, J. M.
Greer of Union and I. C. Campbell of
The following is the statement
which was read by Mr. Richey:
"Mr. Chairman and Members of
the State Democratic Executive Committee
of South Carolina:
"There is only one party in the
iS'tate of South Carolina, and this
party has adopted the primary method
of nominating its officers. In this
State a nomination in the primary is
equivalent to an election. It is import
unt, therefore, that the conduct or
primary elections should be free from
fraud, coercion and intimidation, so
that the supremacy of the white man
may continue to be unquestioned
without in any event calling the negro
into politics. The nominees of
the party should have the assurance
* J? ~
of all men that they have Deen iainy
i:nd honestly nominated. The election
should be conducted in such a manner
that the great majority of those .who
are defeated ^ill be compelled to say,
'We are defeated, but it has been
fairly and honestly done.' j
Richey Alleges Fraud.
"I take it that no Democrat would
want to take his nomination if a
great majority of the electorate;
should honestly believe that he was
taking a tainted nomination. I have!
here affidavits and lexers from differ-j
ent parts of the State, from men of un- j
questioned integrity, which set forth
that money, whiskey, coercion and;
intimidation were used in the primaryj
election held on the 12th day of this
month, and in several instances that j
names were placed on the club rolls

boxes were opened before the time
provided by law so that a number of
men might vote, and that ballots were
fraudulently ch\iged, in order to
bring about Mr. Manning's nomination
for governor. These affidavits and
letters are here in the original and
will be read to the committee if it so
desires; and ev%rv mail brings additional

committee said that, for the reason set

Several miner contests were

lowed a ballot to be taken from the
i Estill box in Hampton county which
had been voted wrong. It was pointer
out that the throwing out of the box
would effect only one race, that for

presented to the committee in this
case. The contest by Lvle Williams,
defeated candidate for township commissioner
in iSpartanburg county was
dismissed by the committee. Mr.
Wiliams charged that D. P. L. Martin,
successful candidate in the second
race, had failed to file in time his ex-i

I ~?? . .. ...
Harvard Had Nine Men in its urigmai
Class of Graduates.
The first commencement of Harvard
college, the first of the educational institutions
of the United States, was
held Aug. 9. 1642. Nine young men
comprised the first class of graduates.
In 1636 the general court of Massachu!
setts agreed to give ?400 "toward a
sChoale or colledge" and the next year
ordered that the Institution be established
In 1638 John Harvard, a preacher.
, died and bequeathed about $700 to the |
i college to be built at Newtown. In his
j honor the institution was named Har!
vard college, while the name of the
j town was changed to Cambridge in
honor of the great English university,
j It is doubtful if the original grant of
?400 was ever actually paid, and in any
event the college- project remained in
j abeyance until the bequest of Harvard
at once initiated the necessary meas!
I Thp original fund was added to in

Hebrew scholar, was chosen first president.

A Marvel of Insect Mechanism.
The sting of a certain Indian fly offers
as marked an example of design
I in nature as can well be imagined.
I When seen through a magnifying glass
io fnnnrt tn ha nnmnnspd of three
sharp blades folded into one, with
their cutting edges outward and running
down to one fine point When
| the fly inserts this up to the hilt in its
victim the three blades fly apart and
then it is seen that each inner edge is
a beautiful saw, worked by six separate
muscles, so that when withdrawn
the instrument rips its way out
with a gush of blood. But now comes
the most curious provision of all. It
would not do to fold up these blades
with the blood adhering to them, so
each blade is provided at its base with
a fine brush of hairs growing out of
an oil gland, which provides an anti- j
septic secretion to keep the blades ;
The forgetmenot is a delightful im
migrant belonging to that numerous j
flower family which includes the V'ir-1

frey. As far back as we are able to j
trace flower history, says the National
Geographic Magazine, it held an honored
place in the flower garden, and
when America was settled it was
brought along to choer the colonist's
austere life and to remind him of the
old roof tree across the billowy soa.

| as well, it being their custom to keep
| a second day in connection with
practically all the more important
Jewish holidays and festivals. This
custom on their part grew out of
certain complex conditions in the!
calendation of early n.tbinical times
: and the practice once established, has j
been Kept up oy mem, even uiuuga
the original reason no longer obtains.
i The Reform Jews observe only the
j day seripturully prescribed. The date
i o? Rosh Hashannah is the first day of
I the 'month of Tishri i.md the New
! Year now to be ushered in, is, acI
cording to the traditional Jewish
Calendar the year 5677.
Unlike January 1st, Rosh Hashannah
has been fully able to'j resist
j secularization. It is in form and
: spirit a. holy day distinctively?not a
| holiday. Solemn services character!
ize its observance 'both evening and
I mon'ii'ng. It is a time dedicated to
! retrospection, introspection and resoi
lutions for the future. The day bears
the special designation of Yom ha
j Din or a Day of Judgment, with I
I quaint mysticism the old v tradition j
j represents the souls of men as being j
j on tihis day before tlie divine tribunal
a? the annual assizes on high.
The great Recording Bookslie open and
the individual destinies are set down,
but, and this is the significant element,
in the conception the award in
i . , , . 1
each given o\se must be sealed by
the person himself meaning thereby
that, though the varying issues of the
New- Year proceed from God's provl
dence no one's future is determined
apart from what he himself is and
does. Out of the above conception has
grown up the familiar greeting interchanged
by Jews on Rosh Hashannah,
namely, "leshonah tova tikasevu/'
meaning "May you be inscribed
for a good year!"
An important feature of the ritual
of Rosh Hashanah is the blowing of
the Shofar or Ram's horn. In ancient
days the sounding of this in-;
strument was associated with times i
of national crisis apa omer amcmu j
occasions. There are various fanciful j
j explanations of the connection of the j
| Shofar with the celebration of Rosh
Hashanah. Each of its dominant notes
likewise has been given a symbolic
significance. As the tones of the Sho1

regarded as a clarion-calT to the con- |

as the Yom ha-Teruafy "the day of
the Sounding of the iS'hofar."
FLUTES OF GOLD.
They Have Sweeter Tones Than Those
Made of Any Other Material.
By some pretty experiments witb
organ pip** of different materials Dr.
Dayton Clarence Miller, professor of
physics in the Case School of Applied
Science, Cleveland, O.. has proved thai
the quality of tone in a wind iustru
ment depends upon its material far
more than is generally/believed. Writing
of flutes in his book. "The Science
of Musical Sounds." he says:
"The traditional influence of differ
ent metals on the flute tone is consistent
with the exj erimental results
obtained from the organ pipe. Brass
and German silver are usually hard,
stiff and thick and have but little influence
upon the air column, and thttone
is said to he hai'v. and trumpet
like. Silver is dense and softer ant!
adds to the mellowness of the tone.
