A WOMAN'S LOVE.
A sentinel angel sitting high in glory
Heard this shrill wail ring out from purgatory:
"Have mercy, mighty angel; hear my story!
"I loved, and, blind with passionate love, I fell.
Love brought me down to death and death to bell,
For God is just, and death for sin is well.
"I do not rage against his high decree
Nor for myself do ask that grace shall be,
But for my love on earth who mourns for me.
"Great Spirit, let me see my love again
And comfort him one hour, and I were fain
To pay a thousand years of fire and pain."
Then said the pitying angel: "Nay! Repent
That wild vow! Look! The dial finger's bent
Down to the last hour of thy punishment!"
But still she wailed: "I pray thee, let me go!
I cannot rise to peace and leave him so.
Oh, let me soothe him in his bitter woe!"
The brazen gates ground suddenly ajar,
And upward, joyous, like a rising star, t
She rose and vanished in the ether far.
But soon adown the dying sunset sailing,
And like a wounded bird her pinions trailing,
She fluttered back, with broken hearted waiing.
She sobbed: "I found him by the sumrner sea
Reclined, his head upon a maiden's knee.
She curled his hair and kissed him. Woe is me!"
She wept: "Now let my punishment begin!
I have been fond and foolish. Let me in
To expiate my sorrow and my sin."
The angel answered: "Nay, sad soul; go higher'
To be deceived in your true heart's desire
Was bitterer than a thousand years of fire!"

DYNAMITE AND MINERS.
Long Immunity From Accident Re- I
sults In Contempt of Danger.
"After a miner had handled dynamite
for eight or ten years without a serious
mishap it is a good idea to put him to
doing something else about the works,"
said a gentleman of this city who has t
had a great deal of experience with high c
explosives. "The chances are a hundred (
to one that his long immunity from ac
cident has given him such a contempt
for danger that he is an unconscious
menace to everybody on the premises.
He will do things that not 6nly imperil
his own life, but the lives of all his
comrades. To give you an illustra- I
tion, once I had an old Cornishman at I
work at a mine in which I was inter- S
ested and had intrusted him with a 1
general supervision of all the blasting.
He had' been handling dynamite for
twenty years or more and was justly
regarded as an expert. During that
entire period he had never had an ace
dent worth speaking of, and by de- s
grees the care and vigilance that were
responsible for his excellent record had
worn away until he was beginning to
entertain the delusion, common to old
hands, that the danger of the stuff was
very much exaggerated.
"One day I was passing through a I
cut where some blasting had been go- I
ing on and noticed the old Cornishman t
hammering a drill into what seemed to I
be a boring in the rock. I asked him t
what he was doing, and he told me 1
coolly there was a cartridge in the hole
that had failed to explode and he was
'just knockin' out the tampin' to re- t
prime it.' I was horrified, for at every t
blow he was liable to explode the dyna- t
mite, and I ordered him sternly to stop .
and never repeat such a performance. E
The proper method would have been to
have drilled a new hole near by and
exploded the first charge with a second
blast. He obeyed sullenly, grumbling 1
to himself, and less than a month after
ward was blown up while doing exact
ly the same thing. He lost his left arna -
at the shoulder, his left eye and part of
his left ear. He also lost his contempt.
for dynamite, and when he finally
emerged from the hospital I gave him
back his former job. I never had a 1
more scrupulously careful employee(
than he was from that time on. It I
seems a brutal thing to say, but there
is nothing that does an old dynamite
hand as much good as to get blown up
once or twice."-New Orleans Times

A. C. LATIMER.
It is true, as Mr. Latimer says,
hat Dr. Stokes is dead: but it is
~qually true that he was not dead
when the letters were written.
Ye have always considered the
loctor as a man of exceptional
ntegrity, who would not utter a
rerbal falsehood, and the idea
hat he would be s;o silly as to
~ommit a falsehod to writing Qver
is signature is a bsurd, in our
>pinion. We observe the com
>laint that Mr. Latimer makes
bout our "putting in print this
lagger thrust at me in secrecy,
tnd now covered by the shadows
>f death," but we are unable to
ee what that has to do with the
act whether or not Mr. Latimer
)fered Dr. Stokes a free pass.
Upon reference to Dr. Stokes's
ublished letter it will be obser
~ed that Dr. Stokes said of Mr.
atimier: "He also had sent me
nD annual pass over one of the
~reat trunk lines. which I return
~d." Mr. Latimer, it will be
>bserved, says of Dr. Stokes:
'I deny that I ever offered him .aI
ree pass." Technically there is
1 -issue of veracity here; but if
dr. Latimer had a free pass sent
.o Dr. Stokes, then the doctor's
barge holds good. In the ab

Stokes says these were for "fam

As explained by Mr. Latimer,
the clover and grass experiment
incident sounds both reasonable
and plausible. Dr. Stokes, how
ever, did not look at it exactly
that way, as is evidenced by his
letter of August 21, 1900. This
is the way the doctor saw it:
.His farm was set in grass by
a government expert last fall.
He was at it for several weeks,
and I believe is still in charge.
Of course the ostensible ground
is for the purpose of testing
grasses for that section, but be
ing within a short distance of
the State farm at Clemson, there
would seem to be no excuse for
expending public funds on pri
vate property, and especially
would it appear reprehensible
when the private property be
longs to a Representative who
has to vote the funds for the
purpose. Doubtless, if private
property had to be used, any
number of farmers in that sec
tion would gladly have granted
small plats for experimentation.
and so have avoided the appear
ance of putting permanent im
provements on private proper
ty at public expense. The prin
ciple here seems too elementary
As to how, if at all, Mr. Lati
mer saved Dr. Stoke's seat in
Congress we have no informa
tion. If Mr. Latimer's claim is
true, it was certainly a remark
able feat. We are doubtful,
however, as to whether the fact
even came to Dr. Stoke's atten
tion. If it had, the doctor
would not have been ungrateful:
but at the same time we have no
idea that his gratitude would
have ever descended to the point
where he could have gotten the

"What's bred in the bone will
come out in the flesh," is a good
old proverb which is illustrated
many times over in daily life.
President Roosevelt posseses an
inherent desire to openly defy
public opinion, but if he does not
exercise some control over those
desires public opinion will not
only defy them, but will stren
uously condemn the reckless
Teddy. By entertaining Booker
T. Washington at dinner at the
White House the other day, the
President comnmitted an act of
idiscretion that will bring down
upon his head a fearful tirade of
abuse and advers~ely affect his
chances for reelection. It was
eminently proper that he should
receive Washington as the rep
esentative of the colored race
in religious, educational and po
litical affairs, but when he enter
tained him at dinner he was
neither performing the duties of1
the President of a white Repub'
lic nor setting an example worthy
o emulation by those over whom
he exerci~s executive authority.
The only reason we ca n assign1
for the indiscreet act is that th~c
President's inherent desire to
rebel against public opinion
ove-mstered his better judg
ment. No saae pierson who ex
ercises authority over seventy
six millions of people does any
thing impulsively, no matter how
trivial it may be, and .as Mr.
Roosevelt is a inani of sound,
common sense, it is to he pre
sumed that he gave the matter
some forethought, which proves
concuswly that his innate de
sires will always show a tenden
y to prevail in deliberation~s
.fecting the nation and its af
fairs. Whether we are fortunate
or unfortunate in having such a
President is a debatable question.
[f fortunate the expense of ro
taining a cabinet is unnecessary

McLaurin And the Cabinet.
"The rumor in Washington that
Senator McLaurin will likely join
President Roosevelt's cabinet probab
ly is the result of the prominence the
Senator has attained in the scheme of
the President's new Southern policy.
and there may be nothing substantial
in it. At the same time. it is not a
fantastic proposition by any means, and
is certainly not without tne bounds of
possibility. Should it come to pass, of
course, Senator McTaurin would leave
the Democratic iarty and Tillman and
his allies would be spared the danger
ous undertaking of throwing him out,
and the impossible task of stillin- his
argunients.-- (harleston Post.
Senator McLaurin may be in
vited to join the Roosevelt cabi
not and he may decide to accept
the position for the benefit which
he may be able to confer upon
the south, but our Charleston
contemporary is entirely mis
taken in saying. "Should it come
to pass, of course, Senator Mc
Laurin would leave the Demo
cratic party, etc."
In the first place if President
Roosevelt should extend such an
invitation to Senator McLaurin
it would be as a distinct compli
ment to the South, which is solid
ly Democratic and will always
remain so. He will be reques
ted to join the cabinet, if at all,
as a Democrat, representing the
progressive. broad, up-to-date
views of the Commercial Demo
cracy as opposed to the anti
quated, anarchistical. revolu
tionary tendencies of Bryanism
and Tillmanism. Senator Mc
Laurin will not be asked to
change his party, nor would he
accept a position in Mr. Roose
velt's cabinet upon any such
condition. Nor will his accept
ance of such a position as a Dem
ocrat be without ample prece
dent. Judge Key., a Democrat,
was a member of . President
Hayes' cabinet. Mr. Gresham
was a Republican member of
Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, The
cabinet officers are the Presi
ident's advisors, touching the
several branches of the govern
ment. President Rosevelt has
indicated unmistakably that he
intends to carry out President
McKinley's Southern policy, the
key note of which was the per
fect reconcilliation of the two
sections, by a non-partizan, equi
table distribution of the federal
offices in the South.
It seems to be impossible for
the Southern press and more es
pecially a large number of the
newspapers of South Carolina to
realize that a Republican Presi
dent can truly be in earnest when
he announces his intention of
appionting the best men to office
irrespective of party. It is not
unnatural, with the eXperience
of a long line of Republican par
tizan Presidents before us, that
we should be a trifle incredulous
when fair play and proper re
cognition of our peculiar politi
cal condition is promised. But
we believe that with the McKin
ley administration an entirely
new .era opened for the South
and that it only remains for the
Southern people to throw off the
narrowminded prejudices of the
past and accept the proffered
hand of friendship in good faith.
We are not asked to surrender
either per'sonal or party princi
ples. We are simply invited to
join in obliterating sectional
lines and in harmoniously work
ing towards the common pros
perity of our country.
We believe that President
Roosevelt is moved by neither
selfish nor partizan motives when
he appoints Democrats to federal
offices in Alabama and South
aolina as he has recently done;
inil we believe that if he should
tender Senator McLaurin a cabi
net position it would be simhply
that he is convinced that in Mc
Laurin he would find a Southern
Derocra.t. best qualified by his
broad, liberal views to aid himn
as a member of his advisory
board in solving the Southern
problem, by methods entirely
outside of party lines.-Green
