Rev. S. A. Nettles, and his
sons, Abe, Julian and Lucian,
and his nephew, Bishop Als
brook, spent yesterday in Man
ning. Mr. Nettles will take
charge of the Advocate January
1st, and its readers can expect a
church paper ably edited, and a
mouth-piece for the Methodist
church that they can take pride
in. Mr. Nettles is an old news
paper map, with executive abil
ity, and a determination to suc
ceed, second to none. He will
give the patrons of the Advocate
the best mechanical service that
money can secure, and his col
umns, editorial, and otherwise
will always be filled with teach
ings worthy of a church organ.
For the first time in modern
history a State has named house
breaking in its code as a capital
offense. Mississippi has adopted
the following law, which now
stands as a statute : "Every per
son who shall be convicted of
breaking and entering, day or
night, the dwelling of another in
which there shall be at the time
some human being, with intent
to commit some crime therein,
shall suffer death, unless the jury
shall fix the punishment at im
prisonment for life, as in case of
murder." A number of burgla
z ries that were accompanied by
shooting of househplders by des
perate men led to this law. The
intruders were usually negroes.
The original Dingley bill im
posed a rate of only $1.00 on lum
ber, but the World says: Julius
Ceasar Burrows, who represents
the lumber interests in the Uni
ted States Senate, was a mem
ber of the conference committee
and forced the two dollar rate
into the bill. The result was an
immediate advance in the price
of lumber. The Ontario govern -
ment adopted retaliatory meas
ures which prevented the furth
er rafting of Geogian Bay logs
to Michigan mills for manufact
urer. Thousands of American
workingmen along the Huron
shore were thrown out of em
ployment. and it is now said
tqiat twenty-eight men control
more than 80 per cent of the
available pine stumpage in the
United States. The American
forests are being slaughtered
and the American consumer is
paying an excessive price for
lumber in order that this handful
of owners may fatten off their
If Superintendent of Education
~O. B, Martin wants to be of real
benefit to South Carolina we sug
Sgest .that he drop his enmity
;against the Citadel Academy, the
:most useful educational institu
7tion of the South, forget his uni
- versity fad, and devote himself
1 the development of county
bih schools. That is what the
State needs more than anything
else-county high schools. As
things go now, boys are sent to
Clemson and the South Carolina
College bef~re they are half

at those highet institutions
Shigher in name-under the idea
that they are really going to col
:lege, when as a matter of fact
they would be doing much better
in some high grade academy. We
have seen it stated that one-third
of the pupils at Clemson are in
the preparatory department, and
that really means that they had
better be at a good high school
if they had one available. It is
-the same way to a large extent
with the South Carolina College.
Both of these institutions are do
ing too much preparatory work-,
work that could be done better
and more satisfactorily elsewhere
if dur educational system were
developed along proper lines. It
is difficult to imagine anything
that we need less than a univer
sity just now. We can much bet
ter afford to let our students who
require post graduate courses go
to other institutions already es
tablished and doing the right
kind of work. We can get along
for twenty years yetjwithout feel
ing the need of a university, and
we will not'feel such a need very
strongly even then unless in the
meantime we do much more than
we have ever done in developing
a first class system of county
high schools, The county high
schools developed to a proper
degree of efficiency will after a
while make the university a ne

A funeral without a parallel
took place November 19th at thE
Midvale Steel Works, Philadel
phia. There a 40-ton ingot of
steel, permeated with the flesh
olood and bones of two workmen
was buried with solemn rites.
An Associated Press dispatch
says: " The workmen who werE
so strangely laid away were John
Forkin and David Gadza, twc
foreign-speaking laborers, wh<
met a horrible death a week ago
They were in a pit near a cupola
containing many tons of molter
steel. A plug gave way and
80,000 pounds of the fiery fiuid
poured faom the cupola and over
whelmed them. The men wert
completely incinerated and not a
trace of them or their clothing
was left. The Midvale Stee
company was averse to sellino
the steel or using it for the pur
pose it was intended, and it was
decided to bury it with the rites
of the church to which the un
fortunate men had belonged.
Accordingly the 40-ton ingot
oval in shape, twenty-eight feel
long, six feet wide and five fee
thick, was moved last week by a
traveling crane to the rear oj
the machine shop, where a grave
ten feet deep had been made.
The great mass of metal was laic
in the hole and a platform buil1
over it so that the burial serv
ices could be better performed.
In the center of the platform was
an opening six feet in diameter.
A great crowd sought admissior
to the workst oday, but only the
two sisters of Gazda, who de:
pended on him for support, and
about 100 workmen who were or
Sunday duty were permitted tc
attend the services along witt
the officials of the company.
Forkin had no relatives in this
country. Among the officials
was President Charles Harrah.
All heads were bared and flags
were lowered to half mast while
two priests conducted the ser
vices. After the sisters of Gazda
had been led away the great in
got was covered with earth anc

A Good Example.
The Minneapolis Club, the
chief business men's club of Min
neapolis, has just set an example
of law observance that should be
followed by similar organiza.
tions. Recently Mayor Jones de
cided to " shut down the lid," as
the saying goes, and as a result
Minneapolis has been " dry " for
several Sundays in succession.
As an incornorated club the Min
neapolis Clib could keep its buf
fet open on Sunday, but at a meet
ing of the directors it was decid
ed to set an example, and as a
result the Minneapolis Club is as
" dry " on Sunday as the rest ol
~he city. The club's aetion takes
from the opponents of Sunday
observance one of their chief ar
guments. " The saloon is the
poor man's club," they exclaim.
"You close the poor man's clul
on Sunday, but you let the ril
man's club remain wide open.'
But in Minneapolis the '- rick
man's club', is also closed. The
action of the managers of the

Colossal Statue of Christ Made from Melted
In 1900 Argentina and Chili,
sister republics, were on the brink
of war, It was the revival of an
old dispute about boundary lines.
On Easter hunday Bishop Bena
vente of Argentina made a thrill
ing appeal for a sgatue of Christ
to guard the frontier, where it
could be seen by all travelers be
tween the two countries. The
two angry nations calmed them
selves ; King Edward of England
was asked to be arbitrator, and
both countries quietly acquiesced
in his decision.
Then both began to disarm.
Chili has turned an arsenal into
a school of trades. By reducing
her army and navy expenses she
is saving millions of dollars and
is spendmng them in making good
roads through the land and in
building a much needed break
water in the harbor of Valpa
To signalize and perpetuate
this victory of peace the good
Bishop's suggestion, seconded
now by the mothers of Argen
tina, was followed. A colossal
statue of Christ, made of bronze
from melted cannon. was dedi
cated March 13, 1004, on the
boundary line, 14,000 feet above
the sea. One hand holding His
ross of sacrifice, the other up
ifted to heaven, the Christ of the
Andes stands on the heights be
wen rhe two contries, blessing
them both as they rest below Him
in peace. The inscription reads
"oonr shall the mountains
crumble to dust than Argentines
and Chilians .break the peace
which, at the feet of Christ the
Redeemer, they have sworn to
The statue has been standing
there something over a year.
Within that year Brazil and Bo
livia have settled an old dispute,
the former paying to the lattar
an indemnity of $10, 000, 000, while
Chili and Bolivia have made a
treaty of peace and friendship
which pledges Chili to help her
late foe to build railroads and de
velop her hidden resources. The
feet of the Christ are moving
upon the mountains!
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace and good will.

As to whether Robert Keith
Dargan really committed suicide
we do not know. It is probable
that he did. But there is no
doubt about the fact that Robert
Keith Dargan was a smooth citi

explainable about the part his
brother is alleged to have played
by getting the poison for him
and standing by while he drank
it. The situation seems to fur
