The great head of the Roman

died last Monday afternoon at 4
*o'clock, surrounded by cardinals
from all over the world, relatives
and members of the Papal court.
The funeral ceremonies will ex
tend over nine days. The re
markable vitality of the aged
Pope has been the wonder of the

weeks it was a struggle with old
age but through it all his mind
was clear and his pious devotions
never for a moment overlooked.
Pope Leo was a pious man, a
scholar and a statesman, and

life it will be a work of education
We~annot understand why it

not purchase tickets at the local

It seems to us that the railroad
authorities might effect an ar

be sold at all of the stations. If
a party wants to go to New York
or Glenn Springs from here, it

must be done, unless as a matter
of accommodation the local

- It was our pleasure last Thurs
day evening to be a guest at
the Elks' club in Columbia,
and while there a delightful
episode took place. Governor
M. B. McSweeny with a num
ber of his friends were sit
ting in one of the nicely appoint
ed rooms chatting with a number
of Elks whom he had not seen
since he moved from Columbia,
when all at once we noticed a
slight commotion near the door,
in a moment Col. E. B. Clark,
manager of Columbia's street
railway, and Col. E. J. Watson
city editor of The State walked
in, approached Governor Mc
Sweeney, and Col. Clark in well
chosen words feelingly express
ed presented him with a beauti
ful Elks' watch charm as a token
of esteem from the members of
that lodge,of which the governor
.is a member. Governor Mc
Sweeney was so completely sur
prised that it was difficult for
him to find words to express his
gratitude, but when his words
did come, they came from a heart
full of love for his brethren and
former associates. It was really
a delightful occasion, and Gov
ernor McSweeney is very proud
of the remembrance. The token
is solid gold and round in shape,
on one side is an Elk with dia
mond eyes, and on the reversed
side are the words "Presented to
Miles B. McSweeney from Elk's
lodge Columbia, S. C., B. P. 0.

up sometime ago, but held by

President Rossevelt has hit the
labor unions a crack over the
head, by refusing to permit a
government employee to be dis

turned out of a union. A man
working in the public printing
office was dismissed because a
labor union had expelled him,
and the President caused him to
be reinstated on the ground that
the resolutions of unions cannot
be permitted to override the laws
of the United States, and as the
man removed, was in office

The lynching epidemic does
not seem to have abated, nearly
every day accounts of new lynch
ings are chronicled, and the craze
is not confined to any particular
section of the country, nor is it
confined to any particular crime,
nor are the victims of Judge
Lynch always negroes. It is a
problem beyond our ability to
solve, and it does not matter how
much we may theorize, it seems
to be absolutely impossible to
find a means to stop lynching.
The general plea as a cause for
lynching is the slowness of the
courts and the tricks of the law,
but all of that is an afterthought.
When a crime has been commited
of sufficient gravity to arouse
any number of people to a high
state of excitement and wrath,
the slow machinery of the courts
does not enter their minds. the
technicalities in the law is not
considered, but their whole being
is centered in the one thought
swift punishment. We often
hear people charge the courts
with being responsible for the
frequency of lynchings. What
constitutes the courts, if not the
people. If there is any branch
of the courts responsible for
crime, and especially that of
bloodshed, it is that branch
known as the jury, composed of
the people who hear the evidence
and are entrusted with the find
ing of a verdict. How often does
justice miscarry with a jury?
How often is it that juries are
influenced by political, or money,
or family considerations? In
South Carolina we have a system
that should insure justice, but it
does not. A friendless creature
commits a crime and he is pun
ished, but let a man of influence
commit the very same kind of a
crime and the chances are that
he will go scott free. With the
friendless man the juries have a
strong regard for the law, but
in the case of the infinentia.l man.
what is called the "umwritten
law" is taken into consideration
and as a general thing a verdict
upon it is founded.
In our opinion there is no law
that can be devised by the hu
ing; our only hope is to teach
that it is wrong, and cowardly in
a country where the law's ma
chinery is in the sole control of
the intelligence of the counties.
In this State where a negro com
mits a heinous crime, if captured,
he is bound to be convicted, and
there is absolutely no excuse for
a resort to lynching, but when
these crimes are perpetrated
people do not stop to reason, ard
we doubt if they ever will until
the sentiment against lawless
ness becomes strong enough to
force reflection. If the lynchers
in the case of Dennis Head in,
Aiken county can be convicted,it
will have a wholesome effect in
this State, and if the accounts of
that lynching be true, we cannot
see how any people can for a
moment uphold the conduct of
those lynchers. Head had com
mitted no offense other than to
refuse to give information as to
the whereabouts of the slayer of
Hall, and because he did not give
the information he was brutally
murdered. We hope Governor
Heyward will exhaust every
means to convict the guilty, even
if he has to employ detectives to
run them down.

A Great Temperance Sermon.
It was not preached by a min
ister, nor even from a pulpit. It
did not come from a Christian
Church, but from the prison
where Thomas Sharkley was con
fined for the murder of Mr. Fish,
the New York banker. Thomas
Sharkley himself was the preach
er, and this is what he said: "If
Mr. Fish had not been drinking
and I had been sober, there would
not have been any trouble, and
Mr. Fish would be alive and I
out of the Tombs."
There is the whole sermon. It
will not take long to read it; iL
will take a good while to think
about it. "If Mr. Fish had not
been drinking"-he probably
would not have been in such a
place with such companions, his
home would not have been deso
lated, and his character blacken
ed. "If Thomas Sharkley had
been sober--he,would not have
had any trouble with an old man,
and would not be facing the ex
treme penalty of law, and, possib
ly, feeling the torture of repen
If it were not for drink, 90 per
cent of the crime which brings
its suffering and expensive upon
the country would be done away.
If it were not for drink, thous
ands of wretched hovels would
be happy homes, multitudes of
miserable people would be in com
fort, myraids of hopeless children
would be full of the promise of
joy. If it were not for drink.
much of the political corruption
would be impossible, and most of
the disturbances of peace would
be removed. If it were not for
drink, vast sums of money could
and wordld be turned into chan-*
nels of usefulness, and material
comfort, educational advantages,
moral instruction and spiritual
inspiration would be fostered.

B3Y H. R. MYERS.
Jesus said "Blessed are ye
when men shall revile you and
persecute you . . . . for
my sake. Rejoice and be exceed
ing glad for great is your reward
in heaven." Here is a statement
of present condition with a prom
ise of future blessing and reward.
Righteousness is actively oppos
ed by unrighteousness, but the
righteous are blessed or happy,
anc. are to rejoice because un
rigteousness is to be overcome.
In the recovery of nature from
her barren condition there must
be the introduction of foreign
forces, which must struggle with
the earth, so to speak, before the
barrenness developes inito fruit

grubbed, plowed, fertillized, be
fore the sun, air and rain can
work with it in bringing the seed
sown into a rich harvest. The
grubbing, plowing, fertilizing,
the sun, air, rain, the seed, all
represent forces, which when in
troduced to the barren earth, are
ntirely foreign to the forces in
the earth which have yielded on
ly thorns and thistles. Who can,
tell of, or describe, the struggle
which goes on until the fruitless
become fruitful? The husband
man does his work with pleasure
because he knows that; out of
the struggle the harvest is to
The grace of God introduced
and applied to sinful mankind, is
. force entirely foreign to sin
and sinful conditions. In its
working in sinners and amid sin
ful conditions, it finds itself ac
tively opposed. But he who in
troduced it knows the p)ossibili
ner rejoice and be glad. The
very struggle between grace and
sin is essential to the production
of spiritual fruitage. Think when
grace was first introduced into
Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria. and
since, to the uttermost parts of
the earth. Kingdoms, kings,
great institutions and mighty
men opposed it because it was so
opposed to them. And yet grace
has subdued, controlled and
brought forth out of these, splen
did spiritual fruit, to the glory
and praise of him who hath re
deemed us. One can almost fan
cy that the barren earth opposes
the forces introduced only long
enough to be pervaded by the
new and strange influence, and
then tasting the sweetness of an
entirely new inducement to a bet
ter-fruitfulness she submits and
yields. "Great is the reward."
So it is that poor sinners strug- i
gle against God's grace, but on- i
ly until they taste and see that I
the Lord is good. Struggle
there must be, persecution and
reviling even, but these must
yield, yea, are yielding to the
gentle but all-pervasive power of
God's wonderful grace.
Oh, saints of God, rejoice and
be exceeding glad for great is
your reward. Ye are the "salt"
in 'the midst of conditions ruin
ous but for God's grace in you.
Ye are light in the midst of dark
ness which would be -mpenetra

jects of God's kingdom set in

tan's kingdom, representative

The sale of furniture in Manning continues fair, notwithstanding the fre
uent rains hindering the customers from coming to town.
The demand for Oak Suits. Chairs and Lounges was so great for the last
wo weeks that I could not supply the demand of my customers and I made sev
ral special purchases in open market in order to keep the furniture movement
Short calls for Hat Racks, Odd Dressers, Wardrobes, Dining Tables, Beds,

n short notice.
Baby Carriages, Go-Carts. Rockers, Window Shades and Clocks are plenti

s for a great advance in prices on account of shortage in raw materials. It is

I am reducing my stock of Furniture to make room for the many new
reat bargains I have coming, but my stock is so large that notwithstanding the
normous business I have done in the last four weeks, I still have plenty of bar
ains to offer for my customers, and my patrons will do well to take advantage
