Hall's Family Fills are the best.
One of the best bills introduc
ad in the present session of the
3eneral Assembly, and one
which is calculated to improve
he public service is the Stan
Land primary bill, but the politi
ians are chary about it and had
.t postponed until next session,
which is equal to its death. The
Stanland bill provided to pre
ent frauds in the primaries, by
forcing a voter to vote in the
township where he resides, and
to prevent the same name from
being on more than one club
roll. Such a law would aid in
loing justice, but the politician
ike Pat does not want justice.
Pat was pulled up before a judge
nd not -having a lawyer the
judge assured him he would see
to it that he got justice, Pat
knowing his guilt pleaded "Yer
honor I don't want jestice for I'm
fter avoidin' him," and just so
s it with the politician, if you
ive him justice you throw him
)ut of a job, and therefore he
will use every effort to avoid
justice. We hope however, Sen
%tor Stanland will get his bill in
:>n the ground floor next winter,
nd force the politicians to takE
it, even as they do a bitter pill.

WE TOLD YOU SO!
The tax levy has been made
and we find ourselves called
upon to go deeper into our pock
ets to the extent of one-half of
one mill for jail purposes. We
said sometime back our readers
well remember, that taxes will
be raised, and our prediction has
been verified in this, as weil as
X many other things. The jail is
a need all will admit, but we can
not admit, that it was necessary
to raise the tax levy to get it.
We have figured on this matter
considerably, and are convinced
that with no back indebtedness
to pay, Clarendon can meet her
running expenses easily, with an
economical management, on a
mill levy. It must be remem
bered that every year property
grows in valuation, and as the
county grows there is more prop
erty to be taxed. Tq illustrate,
within the last few years not
1 an $150,000 in manufac
Irg ustriesalone-oil mills,
knitting dill, and lumber mills
have been added to the tax
books, besides this, there have
been added thousands of dollars
in merchandise, swamp timber
lands, and other property which
turned more and more money
'nto our county treasury, then
there is a tremendeous income
from the dispensary, and from
fines and licenses, all of these
various sources increasing every
year. Therefore, if the county
could be run safely on 3 mills
before this increase of property
was put on the tax books, it does
look like withthis increase, there
--asno necessity to increase the
levy id'a-ise the amount, one
half of one mill will bring for
jail purposes. It has been our
observation, the more money
provided for public purposes the
more will be used, in other
words every available cent will
be utilized in some way, and the
officers will be able to show
vouchers for it, and economy can
never be . obtained by liberal
-provision of money. We be
lieve, have said so before, and
say so now, that a 2} mill levy
can pay the expenses of Claren
don and that a good jail can be
built without increasing the levy
from what it was last year; now
that the levy has been increased
we predict it will be five years
before the additional one-half
mill will be taken off, and be
tween now and then we will be
paying 5 mills instead of St. Why
do we say this? Because some
- of the county officers are clamor
ing for bigger salaries, they
even joining with other counties
to influence the legislature for
favorable legislation, and al
ready our delegation has intro
duced bills to increase salaries,
this, together with the jail build
ing job, and other things will
bring back the debt burden re
cently shook off and it will re
quire the people to dive down
into their pockets, whether they
look pleasant or not.
SENATOR McLAURIN TALKS!
There has been of late some
complaint in the newspapers
about Senator John L. McLaurin
not having anything to say with
regard to to the Crum appoint
ment. Senator McLaurin never
would force his views upon the
public, but when the time came
to act he would then do as his
best judgment dictated without
regard to consequences. There
are other men in public life who
feed upon notoriety, and when
there is a -question which they
can turn to the good of their in
dividual account they grasp the
opportunity. The Crum- ap
pointment, on account of the
appointees race is offensive, and.
President Roosevelt could not
have played better into the
hands of the Southern gallery
playing politician, because it
gave material for the fanning of
the flames of racial prejudice,
and from a United States Sena
tor down to a chaingang guard,
the incident is worked. Sena
tor McLaurin when approached
by a reputable newspaper gave
out an interview, which was
plain, clear-cut and incisive, at
the same time it was conspicuous
in its absence of the vulger ap
plause-catching phrases. The
"I think the action of the committee
is proper, because the confirmation or
the non-confirmation of Crum will raise
a race issue which every good eitizen,
North or South. should wish to av-oid.
The matter has far outgrown the per
sonality of Dr. Crum. It has become a
question of race, and white supremacy
is absolutely essential to the best de
velopment of both races. This doc
trine has been accepted and constitul
tional safeguards thrown around it and
I have no idea that any appointment
made by this Administration is intend
ed as an attack on this vital principle.
There are other colored people who
have been appointed in other Southern
States without such a furor being rais
ed as over this comparatively unlm
"I think that the friends of Dr. Crum
are largely responsible for this, because
they took the position that the refusal
f the President to ap~point Dr. Crum
wa -because of his race. This will al
will come nearer being sent to
Congress than to the gallows or
penitentiary. The fault is not t
in the law, nor is it with the offi
cers. it lies in the depravity of
mankind who have come to re
gard money above everything. t
A man is charged with a mur- s
der, he is brought to trial, the
proof shows the culprit's hands I
still red with his brother's blood i
and the brand of Cain, is upon
his brow to the satisfaction of a
jury, and because a hired and
necessarily perjured witness
gives false, known to be false,
testimony to the jurors, thereby
fixing a preposterous doubt, jus- t
tice is defeated, the State is dis- t
gracedand the culprit stalks out
of the court room amid congrat
ulations, a hero. This fearful
condition should stop, our jurors
should have a higher conception
of their oaths, jurors should a
learn to discriminate between c
falsehood and truth, and then
they should act with clear con- C
science without fear or favor.

Is it Well With the Child?
We have all heard these words
used as a text at the funeral of a
child. But we do not ask this
question respecting the little one
who has been graciously deliv
ered from the sorrows and dan
gers of this earthly life. We
are all prepared to say as did f
the Shunamite mother, "It is i
well," with the child whose form
lies motionless and beautiful in
death. But is it well with the
living child? The child who will
reach maturity of years and then
pass into an endless eternity; is
it well with that child? It inher- 1
its the characteristics of its par
ents, and since there is so little
of wisdom in marriage alliances,
it often inherits most unfortu
nate combinations of character
istics which greatly imperil its
welfare; and such are the laws
of heredity that its natural ten
dencies are largely determined
by pareatal excesses; and thus;
endued, that child is like the,(
photographer's sensitive plate,
receivmg upon itself the impres- 1
sion of its environment.t
Is its environment favorable
to its correct development and
permanent well-being and well-t
doing? Are the conditions and
customs of human society such
as to conserve its interests and
secure its lasting good? Such
surely ought to be the case. It
would be heartless and cruel in -
deed for human society or for
any of its individual members,
mercilessly to imperil the inter
ests or well-being of a helpless,
confiding child. We may de
mand that those who have reach
ed. the years of maturity shall
confront temptation and heroic
ally resist it. but who can say
this respecting an innocent,
Intemperance is that child's
greatest peril, and its environ
ment spreads the snare upon
every step of its earthly path
way. The social customs of the
cmmunity are concealed stumb
ling-blocks, over which that
cild may fall into the open pit
falls authorized by the National,
State and municipal government.
I plead for greater security for
helpless childhood. In the name
of every human being and every
human interest. I declare the
open saloon to be a common ene
my to all. It imperils every in
terest of human life. Its work
is only evil, and that continually.
But for helpless, confiding
childhood i. would enter my most
earnest and solemn plea against
this great enemy of human well
being. In the name of the ten
der, helpless little children, who
gladden'our homes and throng
our streets. I join in the battle
cry. "The Saloon Must Go!"

O'DONNELL & CO.,
SUMTER, S. C., February 10, 1903.
We are sole agents for the counties of Lee, Clarendon and
Sumter for the Caldwell Cotton Planter. This Planter, after two
years' experience in our section, has conclusively proven its claim
to being the most satisfactory and all-round most economical
Planter now in use. It plants the smallest possible quantity of
seed, 12 to 15 quarts sufficing for an acre, and spaces them at the
exact distance desired; most desirable points in view of the high
price of cotton seed and the present slovenly condition of labor..
All agree, hands just will not chop out the cotton uniformly, so
that a machine that will counteract this difficulty, must commend
itself. This certainty of a perfect stand, together with the enor
mnous saving of cotton seed, should induce every farmer to own
one of the Planters.
Read the following testimonials from some of our most relia
ble farmers. For terms apply to us.
O'DONNELL & Co.
Wazte of cotton Seed in Planting.
The South has never stopped to think how much money is wasted in
planting each cotton crop. Let us figure it out and see. Upon a safe esti
mate not less than 400,000 tons of cotton seed are used each spring in plant
ing. The seed is sown lavishly in drills-not dropped at certaiu distances,
as corn-and after the plants are up the crop is thinned with a hoe, more.
than nine-tenths of the young plants being cut out.
Here we find that the seed used in planting the cotton crop would bring
in the market at least $6,400,000.. As nine-teiths of this is wasted, we see
here a total waste of over five and one-half million dollars ($5,760,000). -
It is time for the cotton growers of the South to call a halt to this ex
travagance. The old system of sowing cotton seed in the drill is a remnant
of the times when cotton seed was almost worthless. Since then their
value has so much enhanced that a change should be made in tihe manner
of planting. Instead of sowing the serd in drills, drop them at a distance
wanted, and by following this method not only the labor of thinning is
saved, but nearly 400,000 tons of good cotton seed is saved for commercial
use, and the farmers of the South are five million dollars richer.
The Caldwell Cotton Planter saves the seed, plants and gives good
stand with one peck to acre, saves enough seed to pay for itself in one sea
son. Inquire for it. Agents in all principal towns.
Sumter, S. C., August 21, 1902.
Messrs. O'Donnell & Co., Sumter, S. C.: The Caldwell Cotton Planter I
purchased of you I would state worked stisfactorily. It spaced with reg
ularity, giving me a desirable stand. I intend using it again next season.

Mayesville, S. C., August 16, 1902.
Messrs. O'Donnell & Co., Sumter, S. C. Dear Sirs: I bought of you last
season a Caldwell Cotton Planter. Will state that it is a perfect. planter,
and I was well pleased with it. In my judgment it did all that was claimed
for it. I intend using it again this next year. It struck me cotton stood
arought better where this was need, as it was properly spaced.
J. E. Wilson.
Catchdall, S. C., August 23, 1901.
I used the Caldwell Cotton Planter the past season, and can say it gave
satisfaction, and proved in its simplicity and accuracy, all that was claimed
by its inventor. It is strongly made, and all the combinations in spacing,
distance and regulating amount of seed used, etc., were quickly and readily
made. Used on well made beds, there was, besides the saving of seed, as
surance of a good stand regularly spaced, with a uniform number of plants
to the hill. Yours truly, R. J. Brownfield.
Panola, S. C., August 18, 1902.
O'Donnell & Co.: I have used several cotton planters and discarded
them all for the "Caldwell." It gives me most satisfaction by dropping
any amount of seed at whatever distance wanted, and by causing less draw
on fertilizer than drilled cotton. Also economizing in seed, better stand by
being concentrated, making hoeing much easier to unskilled labor.
J. M. Richardson.
Sumter, S. C., August 16, 1902.
Messrs. O'Donnell & Co., Sumter, S. C. Gentlemen: I used one of your
Caldwell Cotton Planters this year and am much pleased with it. I used

planter. Yours very truly, .. P .Pts
