The Atlanta Exposition, the Macon
Fair, Charleston's Gala week; the
Columbia Fair. And a circus perfor
ming to immense audiences within
the borders of South Carolina and
another on its way, to feed on the
receipts of a short crop will have
something to do with popularizing the
Lien and Mortgage systems for anoth-i
er year. Tillman may preach and
teach but until men whose means are
small learn to deny themselves they
and their business will continue to be
dependent. We like to see people
enjoy themselves when they are able
to do it, and they should do it. But
_ whenever a twenty dollar man tries
to blow himself up to thousand dollar
dimensions there is bound to be an
explosion in the grand procession.
We never read, even in the war
times, any of Miss Evan's novels.
.The few judicious critics in the South
deterred us from cultivating an ac
quaintance with unrealities in the
shape of men and women who stalked
.through her "Beulah" and other phan
tasmagoric stories. She married a Mr.
ilson and resides in Mobile. After
a long silence she appears again in
print. Her story is called "At the
--Mercy of Tiberius." It is recommend
:d by some Southern papers, but the
eritic for the New York Star says:
"That Mrs. Evans-Wilson has a
- certain gift of langua.ge is a thing
nobody can deny. Quite as patent a
fact is that when she shook hands
with common sense in final farewell.
For. throughout her fictive career she
n as hardly ever treated her public to
-possible person, much less a proba- i
be one, but on the contrary has rid
ena eesaw between lurid agony
r impossible bliss. Her heroes one
seem meant to be a cross be
eea #ochester and Mephistopheles."
