Soldiers Siok of lt.
Gon. MaoArthur is confronted by tho
faot that thc torin of enlistment for
most of tho soldiers in tho Philippines
will expiro on Juno 30th next, and- they
aro nearly all oagor to quit tho florvioo.
It iii -trtio tho war 'O?ded' a ybar or ab

a,vay from homo without an army, and
Gon. MaoArthur knows that tho GO,
000 mon undor his oom maud have no
idea of continuing in the sor vico beyond
tho timo of thoir onlistmont. Hence
it is that ho has recommended tho of
fering of a bonus of $250 to each man
who will roonlist. As tho Augusta
C bron i ole says "how could there bo a
severer commentary on tho wars that
aro being wagod in tho Philippines and
South Africa? In tho lattor oaso tho
British aro o florin g $1,23 a day for

noarly.four times tho regular pay, and
Gon. MaoArthur is proposing a bouncy
equal to noarly two years' pay to in

Wo oannot doubt that tho mon in.

that tho mon . in tho Philippines pos

Thoir first onlistmont ostablishos thia
Then why aro they about to lay down
their arras and rotiro from tho war
whon thoir sorvieos aro still neoded?
In our judgmont tho answer is to bo
found in tho faot that thoy aro dis
gusted with tho war thoy aro waging.
It doos not havo tho approval of their
consciences or onlist thoir patriotism;
but must havo tho appoaranoo of cross
ing tho ocean to subjugato a poople
with whom we havo nothing in com
mon, and who aro bravoly battling in
defenso of thoir nativo land to tho best
of thoir ability and cquipmont. It is
natural that the gorgo of tho Amori
oan soldior should rise against such
warfaro, and that having unwittingly
gotton into itv he should hail with sat
isfaction tho expiration' of his onlist
mont, and tho ohanoo to got out."

Mr. PlayorV bond expired about the

notified H. O. Britton, olork of tho
board, and Mr. Britton states that he
promptly no ti dod tho State board of
control, that Mr. Playor was without
bond, and they paid no attention. Tho
county board, knowing Mr, Playor to
bo without bond, quietly let him go on
acting disponsor. in the full disohargo
of his duties, To say the least of this,
it amounts to almost oriminal oareloss
noss, and tho soo ti mont of the people
demand at lost tho prompt removal
of tho board, as by this act alono they
have shown their UnfitnoflS for filling
any ouch important business position.
Mr. Stutts says that he is confident
that ho knows tho four mon who robbed
tho dispensary; that bo has no proof,
but that one of the men wore a peculiar
kind of mackintosh coat that gave him
dead away. If this,wholesale robbery
ia allowed to pass unnoticed as has been
done in the case of every other robbery
conuco tod with tho dispensary here, the
pooplo will vote to put it out of town.
Tho gradod sohool is almost wholly run
by tho profits of the disponsary at this
place, and if tho town were to lose this
monoy it would oaiiso the sohool to be
closed one year or longer.
Capt. W. H. Kennedy, mayor of

got Mt'. Player to deposit tho dispen

without avail, as it seems that ho do

nedy further state? that he appoalod to
Mr. Britton, who is manager for the
board, to help him te get Player to de
posit tho money, but was given no sat
isfaction. Tin bounty troasurer, Il D.
Rollins states that ho also advised Mr.
Player to bo more regular in deposit

only $285 during the month of Decem
