WE STRIVE TO MERIT CONFIDENCE.
A business man desired to dc
some advertising and when wE
quoted our prices he said wE
would have to cut it down as the
same space was quoted to him
elsewhere at one-half the price.
We told him that -our rates are
based upon a genuine circula
tion. and is not fictitious, that wE
are doing business, not for spite
nor for pleasure, that if he de
sired to inform himself upon the
relative value of advertising in
these columns, we would give
him the means. A few days
later he called back and said, "
am thoroughly convinced THE
TIMES is an advertising medium
where I will get full value foi
my investment, and as I am ad
vertising as a business invest
ment I will accept your rates,
although apparently higher that
has been quoted me, but in my
opinion se far as practical result:
are concerned.they are cheaper.'
He said further, that he had beer
making the matter of advertis
ing a study by seeking inquiries
from people, white and colored,
in every section, and he has alsc
investigated every postoffice it
Clarendon and adjoining coun
ties to satisfy himself if the dif
ference in rates is warranted.
When he made his contract witis
us he said, "I would advertise
in THE TIMES if the rate was
fifty per cent higher, and con
sider it cheap."
This is no fake dream. but ar
actual fact. THE TIMES does noi
pretend to compete with any
other publication.either in rates,
circulation or ability. It hase
fixed mission, with fixed rates,
an increasing circulation whicl
is bona fide, and not sent to thosi
who have not subscribed for it,
and an ability which speaks foi
. We are not runmng this news
paper to gratify revenge, bu
solely as a business institution
without meddling with the busi
ness of others and without un
dermining to dissatisfy the pat
rons of others. We are conten1
with the patronage we merit and,
when we get so that we innsi
connive and scheme to weaker
the support of competitors, wi
will get out of the newspape:
business. There is no objectiot
to decent competition, and wher
a competitor has reached a posi
tion of equality, he merits 'a:
much as we do, whether it be ii
rates or anything else, but be.
cause a publication is called
newspaper, that in itself does no1
entitle it to consideration, 11
must be edited with ability. sin
ce're and fearless; it must be in
dependent in its views, it inus1
not be the tool of spleen, no:
must it be the instrumeut of fa
voritism. It must have an hon
est circulation, not merely the
sending out of papers, but to
clientage which take it out of thi
postoffice, pay for it and read it
THE TIMES does not remain in the
postoffices, because we will no
send it to a man who has no
subscribed for it and who doe;
not pay for it. When a sub
scription list is made up of pay
ing subscribers it is then pos
sessed of a genuine circulatioI
which will be read, and whic)
makes its advertising columna
valuable to the advertiser, an4
it is from a subscription list suei
as THE TIMES possesses that ad
vertisers get results.
Why is it THE TIMES has mer
ited such a fine standing?~ It i:
because it is the handiwork of
man who has his heart in his
work, and who devotes his bes
talents towards making the pa
per a household necessity. H<
does not have to go among th<
enemies of a competitor to or
ganize a corporation to secur<
money to make opposition. H<
stands upon his own recourse!
and with them he defies the con
spirators. Let our enemies, w<
mean that the leaders i:
our opposition are persona
enemies, they have not onl:
attempted to weaken our in
fiuence politically, but financi
ally and otherwise, by resorting
to means unworthy of men o
their professions; they have no
succeeded in their purposes, no:
will they, as long as the peopl<
continue to receive the hones
service we have given them; an<
as long as the people stand b:
us, the corporations, and thi
boycott of its stockholders can
not phase us in the slightest. B:
looking over our advertising
columns it will be seen whethel
or not, the most reputable busi
ness men of this town, notwith
standing our rates, regard thit
paper with business approval
These men would not give us
their patronage, at our rates did
they not know our space is worti
the money and from it they ge
good results. No, they would g<
where they could get their adver
tising for less money.
We propose to ignore the petta
little insinuations which our at
tention has been called to of late
as we hwa no nadmiration for ths
I maker of them, and do not pro
pose to dignify him with notice
sufficient to be drawn into a con
troversy with him. If lie finds
pleasure in continuing his insim
uations, he might enjoy himself,
but he may become suddenly
awakened by a realization oe
an old German proverb, "The
pitcher goes to the well until it
is broken." or in other words the
insinuator may insinuate once
too often, then his clerical robe
will not serve him as a mantle of
charity. This will be our las1
allusion on this line, and we will
go along on the even tenor of
our way,seeking where we migh1
do the most good for the genera
welfare, and "damned be those
who throw serpents -in our path.

THE WAR IS ON.-THE FLAG OF THE
CRIMSON SUN DRAWS FIRST BLOOD.
After much diplomatic man
oeuvering betwen Russia and Ja
pan, which has kept the world
on the anxious bench, Japan or
dered her ambassador at St. Pe
tersburg to break off diplomatic
relations with Russia and ash
for passports to leave that coun
try. This means fight, unless
other nations intervene. bul
from Japan's attitude interven
tion will not be welcomed by Ja
pan, as the Mikado seems to bE
spoiling for a fight. Russia can
not hope for a peaceful settle
ment of the differences between
her and Japan, because any
concessions she may make which
do not fully accede to the demands
of Japan, will not be accepted,as
it would only be a move on the
part of Russia for delay to pre
pare the stronger to make a large
territorial grab. Japan h a s
drawn the dead line and has de
fied Russia to cross it. Jeapan
has made her demands and will
not listen to compromise; the
soft sweet promises of the White
Bear, will not allure the Mikado
from his determination.
The relations between the twc
countries are severed and we
cannot see how it is possible tc
to settle the difference short oi
the sword. Russia is at a disad
vantage, because her base oi
supplies is far away, and a large
portion of her fleet is shut up in
Turkish waters and cannot come
out of the Dardanalles, the an
cient Hellespont, the strait unit
ing the sea of Marmora with the
Egean, so called from the twc
castles by which the narrowest
part is protected. This strait is
famous in history for the pas
sage of Xerxes by means of a
bridge of boats, and its name is
not less widely known from the
story of Hero and Leander, and
Lord Byron's successful attemp1
to rival the ancient swiinmer,
The passage of the strait is
easily defended, but in 1807 Ad.
miral Duckworth of the Englisi
navy passed all the fo'rtressel
into the sea of Marmora. In the
treaty of 1840, confirmed by the
Paris peace of 1856, no foreigt
ship of war may enter the strai
except by Turkish permission,
and this permission is not likel3
bto be obtained because all of the
other nations would protest.

The latest dispatch from the
scene of strife says a naval en
gagement took place Monday
night, in which the Japanese
made an attack on Port Arthur,
and disabled two Russian battle
shins and one Russian cruiser,
wounding 2 officers, 41 men and
9 men killed, and a Russian mail
ship was captured off Shan Tung
peninsular. The Russia::s were
taken completely by surprise,
and only one Japanese ship
seems to have suffered. The
United States is arranging to
maintain neutrality between
Russia and Japan during hostili
ties, and for the recognition of
the integrity of China.
An Early Riser.
A strong, healthy, active constitu

the liver. The famous little pill known
as DeWitt's Little Early Risers not
only cleanse the system but they
strengthen the action of the liver and
rebuild the tissues supporting that or
gan. Little Early Risers are easy to
act, they never gripe and yet they are
absolutely certain to produce results
that are satisfactory in all cases. Sold

Hon. James E. Tindal of Clar
endon has been re-elected a
trustee of Clemson College, and
Senator B. R. Tillman was re
elected a trustee of Winthrop.
Both of these gentletnen have
rendered valuable service to
these institutions, and it is to be
hoped the question of holding
two offices will be sprung on
Senator Tillman, if it is we have
serious doubts if he hold the
Senatorship and the trusteeship
at the same time.
One of the best bills introduced
in the legislature was Senator
Hardin's bill to put cotton seed
meal under the same inspection
regulations and requirements as
fertilisers. The Columbia State
seems to regard this as meddle
some legislation, but in our opin
ion there has been as much fraud
in the manufacture and sale of
cotton seed meal as in fertilizers.
The cheating has not been con
fined to adulteration, but it has
extended to short weights. We
know of good men who say that
cotton seed meal has fallen short
from 10 to 15 per cent in weight,
and the quality was also tamper
ed with. Therefore we think
Senator Hardin's bill seeks to
meddle with the manipulations
of dishonest men who are not
satisfied with grinding out from
the pockets of the far-mers an
enormous profit, but they must
rob them out of the quantity.
Inspect the meal, and the State
will get many thousands of dol
lars out of what is now claimed
to be a stock food product, but
which is sold to the farmers as a
fertilizer without the tax tag
Another Case of Rheumatism Cured by Cham

The efficacy of Chamberlain's Pain
Balm in the relief of rheumatism is be

The unprecedented rise and
-fall in cotton, should serve as an
object lesson to the growers of
the staple. It is always gratify
ing to realize fine prices for our
products, but when those pr-o
ducts are made the medium of
speculation, our farmers should
not be seduced into a glittering
hope for the future, and lose
sight of making the crop as
economically as possibly- The
past season has demonstrated
convincingly that prices are not
governed by the legitimate laws
of supply and demand; the spec
ulators have brought about a
condition which to our mind will
prove demoralizing, unless the
farmers are exceedingly cau
tious. Prices of all commodities
are constantly advancing, large
ly influenced by the high prices
of cotton, and if our coming crop
is made upon a basis of the pres
ent high prices of cotton, it may
result in disaster. Farmers who
a-e forced to buy supplies and
material for the coming crop at
present prices and then fail to
realize a commeasurate price for
what they make, will find them
selves involved in a debt which
will cling to them, and embarass
those who advanced to them.
The Death Penalty.
A little thing sometimes results in
death. Thus a mere scratch, insignifi
cac cuts or puny boils have paid the
death penalty. It is wise to have Buck

The Panama treaty ratification
is now assured, notwithstanding
the streneous opposition of some
of the Democratic leaders. Sen
ator Simmons of North Carolina
sounded the death knell to the
opposition, and when the treaty
is ratified the Democratic party
can share in the credit. The in
dependence of Democratic Sena
tors in refusing to permit them
selves shackled by a caucus of
obstructionists is commendable,
as it means that patriotic endeav
or is a wiser statesmanship than
partisan political advantage. It
means that Southern Senators
are no longer obstacles in the
way of progress, and that the
South will take advantage of
legislation which advances her
interests, regardless of political
effect. Had this independence
been manifested long ago, the
South, and the Democratic party
would have stood better before
the country than it has the past
few years. There was a time
when the refusal to be caucus
bound meant political disaster to
the ambitions of Democratic Sen
ators, but times have happily
changed for the country's good.
When You Have a Cold.
The first action when you have a cold
should be to relieve the lungs. This is
best accomplished by the free use of
Chamberlain's Congh Remedy. This.
Remedy liquefies the tough mucus and
causes its expulsion from the air cells
of the lungs, produces a free expectora
tion and opens the secretions. A com
plete cure soon follows. This remedy
will cure a severe cold in less time than
any other treatment and it leaves the
system in a natural and healthy condi
tion. It counteracts any tendency to
ward pneumonia. For sale by The R.

The DesChamps bill appealed
to the judgment of the legisla
tors, that it went through without
a dissenting voice, until it. came
up for a third reading, then a
change came over their dreams,
and in our opinion a red hot wire
order from Washington pressed
the button at Clemson College,
which caused the faculty and
trustees to swoop down upon
Columbia to lobby in opposi
tion to the measure. Touch one
dollar of Clemson's income, and
the authorities set up a calamity
howl, and in our opinion the ac
tion of the trustees in urging the
defeat of the DesChamps bill will
open the eyes of the farmers to
the fact that the institution is
not so much after the interests
of the farmers after all. The
bill sought to make it possible
for the farmers to reap benefits
by way of practical dlemonstra
tions at home, and the mere pit
tance of cost did r'ot amount to
"a drop in the bucket" compared
with Ciemson's income, but much
or little, it was chopping off
somthing, and must not be per
It is passing strange a meas

could not make a more perfect
change. The action of the leg
islature on this bill is not at all
creditable, it puts the members
in the attitude of automatons
that turn and twist, and squirm
at the pull of the string.
Mr. DesChamps deserves much
credit for conceiving such a bill,
had it been enacted into law, it
would have been worth many
times its cost to the people. It
was one of the only measures
introduced of~ benefit to the farm
ers, and we are sorry it was
killed. It will however, like
truth, rise again.

I had been pretty well all my life, but sickness came upon me during the last 20 years.
My doctor told me it was old age, and gave me Duiy's Pure Malt Whiskey. I am taking
that medicine now, and it is both medicine and nourishment to me. I cannot eat a hearty
meal the way I used to, but Duffy's keeps ice up and going. I would not be alive without
it.' EDWARD NOYES.
Old age is happy when it goes hand in hand with health. Hundreds of men and
women who have passed the century mark a.re kept alive and well today by the use of
Dfy's Puro Malt Whiskey. It was
p S - e r and so it is theirs. An absolutely pure distil
7 lation of malt, without fusel oil, itis recognized
'' by : 1e government as a medicine. This is a
guarantee. It is a tonic-stimulant recomnended by physicians of every school, a boon. to
the weak and worn, to the weary and depresed. It arrests the prcgress of physical de
cay, strengthens the heart, rel eves the aching head, gives to the limbs their old time
vigor and clears the brain. It enriches the blood and r.ourisi:es the vital forces, and in
this way drives out diseaso and promotes health anil longevity. Doctors call it "a form
of food airealy digest2." as it agrees with the most delicate.stomaeh. If you wish to
keep strong andl well in old age take a tablespoonful three times a day in milr or water.
