FACTS CONCERNING SLEEP. .
Even ? Midday Nap le Better Thun

Tho scholar and professional man,
Uko tho anxious housowife, ls apt to

becomos a curso. Men and women
who are abused in getting.and gai nm g,
tho merchant, the hanker, all allkO,1
fail tq secure that self-control which
can manage the mind as well asleep
Normal sleep should bo puroly a
physiological repose similar to*the
rest of animals ,who go to sleep with,
tho darkuess and twa ko with tho
light. Some one has said that sleep
ls like hunger or thlrdt, representing
a diminution of energy throughout the
entire body. I hardly think thlB can
be true, but lu my judgment sleep
rathor suggests tho diminution of en
ergy of the brain, and ho is a wise
man who takes tho hint whon brain
fug sets in of au evening and goos
comfortably and properly to bed.
Of eourso it goos without saying
that night Is not tho only time for
sleep. Men and women whw are bu3y
could steal Just a few mlntues before. -
or after thc noonday luncheon to
catch a little tvip, and, indeod, I am
nearly sure that the noonday nap ist
worth far more- than the noonday
moil, for the digestive processes are
surely hindered during tho periods
of mental activity, and lt ls tko excep
tional person in this busy world of
oura who is not called upon to use ali
bis brain and brawn to make a living.
lt has been my habit to advise moth
ers to steal a while away from every
"cumbrous care." and. even if sleep
fails to be wooed, to take about 20
minutes every day in absolute pence
from all anxieties an! relaxing all the
muscles. A habit of this 'kind is
easily acquired, and wa might have
fewer neurasthenic women, whose
nerves make life hideous to their
families, if n word like this, spwl'.or

Industries That Shorten Lives. .
Metal polishers are said to become
disabled In about' seven years. Vor
that reason they command high
wages. Most of them tile of consump
tion. The stonecutter's life ls a little
longer, but death com' s to him in the
Bame way. Workers in trenches, sew
ers, street-cleaners, canal-diggers',
workers in calss oes,, tunnels, in com
pressed air, bridge-builders, and rail
road laborers, are short-lived. The
tunnel under the North river cost
more than a score of lives by accl-.
dents, besides permanently impairing
tho health and shortening the lives
of un Known scores. Building of the
New York and Brooklyn bridges was
very fatal lo human life. An engineer
told me that they kept tho facts out
of tho newspapers as much as possi
ble. All great works of engineering
are prosecutod at tho expense of hu

gentlemen on the race problem.
The audience was composed largely
of city people, the- bad roads no
doubt preventing ninny people from
the country coming In to hear the
distinguished speaker, as they would
have liked to do. The court house,
whore the meeting was held, waa
comfortably filled, one-third of
the audience being ladlos.'
Senator Tillman arrived in thc
city on tho Atlantic Coast Lino train
on Tuesday afternoon, ut 5 o'clock
and was niot by Capt. Claffy, Shorlfi
Dukes, Clerk of Court SalJey, Hon.
I. Vf. Cowman and Mr. J. C. lans
dale, of the committee appointed by
th? ladles to receive and entertain
the senator whfl? hore . Mr .J. L..
Sims, Of th? 'committee,' wari unable
to meet th? senator bil account ol
Blckness in his family. The com
mittee escorted the senator to the
beautiful country home of Mrs: J. W.
Stokes, a few miles from the city,
where he was royally entertained
for. th? night. All tho membors $L

wives ,->.Vero al ap,. gues.ts^of rMrs,
Stokes, .Tuesday/evenln,g^;,excopt Mr.
Sims, who, from the cause already
stated, waB denied that pleasure.
This was not the. "first visit of the
senator to the hospitable nonie' oj
Mrs. Stokes, as he and Mrs. Till-'
man have be?n guests there'-'bofoTo'.
Mrs. Stokes* drove the-?ifmtor in ob
Wednesday . mornihg and .' 'h?i
was taken ' to the' St.
Joseph's Hotel, by the com-,
mit tee, where he remained, until
time for the address. During the
short time he was at the hotel a
number of .gentlemen called to pay
their respects A few minute? be
fore 12, o'edock be left the hotel
and reached .the^ court,, house just
about, the time appointed ?or .the
' Speech. H? WUK warmly greeted on,
the street and in the court house by
old friends and admirers.
The meeting wus opened with
prayer by Rev. D. D. Dantzler. Th ;n
Hon. I. W Bowman Introduced Sen
ator Tillman in a very few words as
the greatest South Carolinian and
one of tho foremost statesmen of thc
times Tho senatopj aB ho arose,
was greeted most enthusiastically on
all sidos. He opened his address by
referring to his former visitB to
Orangeburg, and said he folt some
what embarrassed this time because,
a fee waa charged to hear him. Ile.
said this was done by the ladles i/b
his suggestion as a means to help
along the grand cairne they weiid
3 rori - . fry
to b? able to contribute, by his
time and labor, to th? establlsu
fent of a hospital where the
afflicted could be treated without
going to some other city.
Senator Tlllfun then took up tho
race problom and discussed It in a
calm and ' diBpasslonate mannor.
There was no bitterness In his
speech towards tho negro us a race,
but be painted out the great dan
ger that confronted the South in the
years to come when the present
moans used to curtail the negro voto
will no longer be applicable. He
said it wus a lementable fact that
more negro ohlldren were attending
school iu South Carolina than white
children, and thot lt woa a question
of time only when there would b?
more negro voters in this State
than white voters. He said that the
framers of the present constitution
went ?B far as they could in disfran
chising the negro without disfran
chising white men, which lie said
would never do.
He thought th? day would come,
unless present conditions were
ehanged, when th? whiten would di
vld? and the negro would bc
brought in by the two factions ol
the white people to nettle their po
litical disputes. He referred to the
fact that no election on any ques
tion could h? aettled now in this
State without th? charge , of .fralid
being charged, against on? side Ol
the other. He cited as an evidence
of what h? meant by referring to
th? frequent oontests over dlspen
?ary elections and new county elec
tions. He said these contests be
tween white people encouraged thc
negro to hope "lor political powet
Home day, and b? thought the white
people ohould stop lt and settle theji
troubles without ,6o. much quarrel
ing among themselves.
Senator Tillman, paid a* grar?d 'and
beautiful tribute to th? womanhood
of the South, who, he said, would
keep the race pure, but he scored In
?catching terms white men who were
guilty of (he great wrong lo theil'
rac? of raising oolored families. IB
said nil such men were the worst
enemies th? South had, and that
they should be made to leave*' thc
South In broad, open daylight, nevoi
lo return. As usual, with the sen
alor, he did not minc.? his word.'
when on this branch of his Iheme
but talked out plain and in unmis
takable language. He told of some
of his experiences iu ?peaking to
Nortehrn people. He said the peo
pie of the North were having theil
eyes opened about the conditions nt
the- Sou th and that ttioy were will
ing for the South to Kettle the -race
question if it was . llmlnated from
He said I he Northern people had
so few negroes among them that thr
race question did not. menace them
as lt did the people of the'South.
Ho said the negro up North war
like ono dead fly in a pan of milk,
which could be swallowed by tho
people of that section without much
inconvenience, but In the South the
conditions were reversed. Here, lu
said, we would have io swallow r
pan full of dead flies with harri)}
enough milk to cover them. Thin
happy illusion brought down thc
house. Senator Tillman's speech
was a splendid one all the way
through. Ho thought ?lhe solution
