Something About Ira B. Jones.
It is right that the people of Sout,'
Carolina should know the fact abou
the candidates in the race for Governor
before the 2:h o' August because n<
one can vote properly onless he vote:
intelligently and to vote intelligenti
one must know the record of the candi
dates. This article is written with the
purpose o' letting the people know more
about Ira B. Jones.
. Few people know that Judge Jones i:
a man of the people. He is proud o:
t 11 e fact that in Newberry county,
where he was born. there are still peo
ple living who remember that his fath
er was a respected carpenter and his
mother assisted her husband in the
support of the family by sewing for the
AS STUDENT AND YOUNG LAWYER.
Almost from chiidhood Ira 13. Jones
looked at life seriousiv. His school
mates remember that often in the after
noon when they were at lay he woudl
go in early to study for his elas,-ei t he
next day, and they testify to the fact
that he gave early promise of becoming
an upright man and a useful citizen.
By -areful study and by taking ad
vantage of such meager opportunities
as were offered, he obtained a fair edu
cation. Schools were not then what
they are now and that is probabiy the
reason Judge Jones remembering his
own ditliculties and wishing to smooth
the road for other poor boys, declared
that, as Governor "The Improvement
and Development of the common schools
shall have my keen interest, and hearty
It would be easy to tell and might be
interesting to hear how young Jones
having gotton an education moved o
Lancaster county and began the practice
of law. How clients came slowly at first
and how later having inspired the con
fidence of the people in his home town
he acquired a large and paying practice.
What we are chiefly interested in, how
ever, is his political career.
In 1890 Ira B. Jones was elected to
the Legislature from Lancaster county
and it is evident that he was widely
known and that his ability had been
recognized. for he was at once made
chairman of the Ways and Means Com
mittee of the House. and was later elec
ted its Speaker. These were stirring
times, for the great reform movement
had just swept over South Carolina and
party spirit ran high. Senator Tillman.
then Governor, was instituting many
needed reforms and Judge Jones. as
Speaker of the House. did efficient ser
vice. Be it said to his credit, however,
that although the whole State was
aroused by political animosity. Judge
Jones so conducted himself as to receive
the hearty applause of friengs and at
the same time, by his fairness, he won
the respect and confidence of those who
had been bis political opponents.
If came, therefore, as a natural re
ward for service that in 1896 he was
elected Associate Justice of the high
est court in the State. It may be men
tioned in passing that his present oppo
nent in the race for Governor, seconded
his nomination and voted for him as As
sociate Justice. Having served twelve
years as Associate .Tustice, in 1909, upon
the retirement of Chief Justice Pope,
Judge Jones was elevated to the posi
tion of Chief Justice, which is the high
est judimizal position in the gift of the
It may be truthfully said that no
Judge in South Carolina in many years
has enjoyed a greater reputation both
for ability ano honesty than Ira B.
Jones. The same industry and conscien
tious performance of duty which was
noticeable in him as a young man have
characterized his work as a Judge
He has been the recipient of honors
from his fellow men and the emolu
ments of oflice. but the satisfaction of a
hard day's work well done has ever been
his best re ward.
Among the charges hurled at Judge
Jones by his polit.ical opponent is that
he has leaned towards corporations.
Sugice it to say that as attorney he
never represented a corporation and as
a Judge he repeately upheld large ver
dicts against. the corporations. In the
case of Rhodes against the Granby Cot
ton Mills of Columbia. he upheld a ver
dict for $8,000 00 in favor of Rhodes on
the ground that there was evidence
that he had been unjustly discharged
and blacklisted by the cotton mills. The
verdicts which lie has sustained against
the railroads would run up into the
hundreds of thousands of dollars, there
being a verdict against the Southern
Railway Company for $25,000 and many
others for large amounts.
He has never leaned either toward
or against corporations, but his decis
ions and rulings have been those what
these of every Judge should be-just
and fair to all.
CHA RGES UNJUST.
As Citizen, Lawyer, Legislator, Judge
and Chief Justice, Ira B. Jones has
"made good."' He has lived a moral up
right life: is a conscientious member of
the Associate Reformed Presbyterian
Church, is temperate in his habits;, and
has measured up to all the requirements
of a true and use ful man. It should be
remembered that this man who is now
before the people in the race for Gover
nor has never in his life been charged
with anything unbecoming the highest
and best citizen until his opponent
brought charges against him. The a b
surdity of these charues can best he
shown' by the fact that. Cole L. Blease
himself 'voted for Judge Jfones for Uni
ted States Senator in 1909 with such
men as Frank B. Gary, LeGrand Wal
ter, J1. L. Coker and other high men.
To try to make South Carolinians be
lieve 'that this man who has been their
highest Judge believes in social equal
itv between the races is so evidently a
trick to catch votes as to need no expo
Ira B. Jones is no political experi
ment, and as a Governor, he may be
counted on to give the people the same
honest, faithful and intelligent service
which has always characterized his
work in their behalf.

The Problem of -orce.
Whether the sum total of energy In
existence is increasing or decreasing is
unknown. Man may cause energy to
change from one mode or form to an
other. but there Is no annihilation nor
Increase. Energy may be created or
destroyed by the Creator and the fact
escape detection in this colossal uni
verse, which has not, by any means,
been fully explored.
The entire problem of force, or en
ePgy, Is being studied in laboratories
vith renewed activity and with the aid
of instruments of ever increasing ac
curacy. Space may bold wonders yet -
undetected. Thus energy in a form not
at present known may reside there.
A number of recent experiments have
revealed effects that are inexplicable
by any lawvs known to science. These
researches were made in light. The
rc-ults of studies now boing made are
awailt-d with great interest. A new
electronic theory of light may be for

Hay fever and asthma make August
a mont.h of intense rutiering to many
people. Foley's Honey and Tar Com
pound gives prompt ease and relief. and
is soothing and healing to the inflamed
membranes. Wm. M. Merethew, N.

Foley's Honey and Tar Compound re
lieved me of a severe attack of asthma
and less than a bottle causea a complete
cure." Refuse substitutes. The Dick

What Is a foreigner? It depends on
the country. In the United States It is
a newcomer who has not yet had time
to catch his breath. unpack his kit and
fand a job. In India the case is differ
ent. An official at Malabar, south In
dia, recently received a letter from a
man whose status he was investigat
Ing and who said: "I am a native of
India by birth. but I have claim to for
eign origin and foreign blood. A col
ony of Syrians from Edessa settled in
Malabar In A. D. 345. I belong to that
sect, and as such I have reason to claim
foreign origin and foreign blood."
Dr. C. H. Ellsworth. Dentist, 16 Bald
in St., Rochester, N. Y., says Foley
Kidney Pills gave him immediate re
lief and strenetbened him wonderfully. M
"I have been bothered with weak kid-%
eys and bladder trouble and suffered
much pain. Foley Kidney Pills gave
me immediate relief and strengthened
me wonderfully. I am pleased to reco
mmend their use." The Dickson Drug

A Famous Widow.
One of the most famous widows of
antiquity was Agrippina, the widow of
Germanicus. During the lifetime of
her husband she attended him in all his
campaigns and shared his dangers.
Suspecting that her husband had been
poisoned, she had his presumed mur
derer assassinated and was herself
soon after treated with such indignity
by Tiberius that she was driven to
desDair and starved herself to death.
A. S. Jones, of the Lee Pharmacy,
