cco Hearing before tho commit*
teo on agriculture coneering the
Appalachian Forest Reserve there
were a number of eloquent ad
dresses made by delegates from
several states, appealing to the
committee for a favorable report,
and urging the need of such legis
lation for the country. This bill
will provide for an appropriation
to secure this reservation in order
that tho timber of the country
may be saved from devastation.
In connection with this movement
tito valuable service contributed
by Senator Latimor ol' South Car
olina is of noteworthy mention. 1
LVom thc record it is ascertained
thai Senator Lulimcr in co-opcra
with Senator Simmons of North
Carolina began ns pioneers, to
stir a favorable sentiment for this
work, lt may be well said that
tho preset i agitation of lins sub
ject is duo largely to tlx4 activity
of Senator Latimor in pointing
out tho necessity of such legisla
tion. lt hus taken much though,
unusual tact, ami Very considera
ble tune to bring into thc serious
consideration of tho leading states
man ol' the nation. We are privi
leged to assort I hat tho attitude ol
thc pending measure permits its to
venture that al present it is in ?
most promising light for passage
at this session. Asa preliminary
part of this work there has linen
under way since last session a sur

and Latinier, who i>y their quiet
forceful method of work n the
last session of congress secured n
sullicient appropriation lo have
this done, which in itself is quite a
victory. 1 lonee wo aro of the
opinion that if Senator Latimor
should hoi succeed al this session
in bringing about the desired end,
such legislation will at any rate,
ultimately lie enacted into law.

self as of the opinion that the hill

possibility of its passage was en
couraging. Should ho succeed in
this effort it would be a groat boon
to tho entire Southland.
Representative Kller.be of South
Carolina is doing some valiant
work just at this time in regard to
securing an appropriation ol*
$100,000 for thc erection of a post
ollico building at Darlington,
South Carolina. Mr Kl 1er bo stated
that he was hopeful qt success
in this undertaking, and especially
so on account of tito striking need
of such a building as he proposes
to have erected. Before the com
mittee ho made a strong contrast
with tho present edifice as com
pared to other public buildings at
Darlington. Mr Kllorbc is ambi
tious tO do justice to tho pride of
his people and for this reason will
make a determined effort to gain a
favorblo rcportjfrom thc committee
recommending that the $100,000
be allowed for tho desired pu rpo e.
Ho has filed letters from his con
stituents, and other information
which will bo valuable evidence in
his hearing; also a number of pic
tures made Of buildings in the
same vicinity and section of the
city where the post oflice is to bc
located, together with a picture of
thc present building used for this
purpose. These pictures aro in
themselves sufficiently convincing
to warrant a favorable report and
Mr LCI lor bo entertains tho expecta
tion that ho will bc able to have
his bill enacted into law as orig
inally drafted, to his const)tu
cuts a magnificent public structure

city of Darlington and stand as a
monument lo his untiring efforts
in this undertaking.

BITTEN BY A DOG.
But the Dog was not Mad. A dis
cussion of the dog subject.
1 have just beard with sorrow,
that a doir lias bitten tho little
child of Mr. Will Spears, and he
??one with her to Atlanta, to
have her treated if the test proves
that tho dog was mud, as he car
ried thc dog's head with him. 1
wish lie could have carried ten sol
iv. cars of heads instead of one.
When I heard of it I was shocked
beyond measure. It brings to my
mind that less than a year since 1
had the. same sad experience. So
I lind myself in ?i proper frame of
mind to pay my respects to those
contemptible, trou bio making,
lie: ch-lcgged cusses.
Tho rendors of the Advocate will
recall that in an article a few
months since 1 made, the prediction
that just as long as every other
house could boast of from ono to
three; dogs thc people would be in
danger ol' being bitten by mad dogs.
My prediction basc?me true, and
Mr. Gibson, anti child, and little
IC? li tl i Spears, was the Unfortunate
ones. Who will he tho next In
less than a year eight persons has
gone lo bc treal ed l'or dog bites
and two others lost their lives be

Thc sermon was very practical
and was listened to with close
Taking as his subject" Thc need
ol' the Church for thc business
meir*, Mr. Kilgo proceeded to
show tho present attitude of thc
business man towards the church.
Ile said that tho business man
gave probably more liberally to
thc church today than they had
ever done before. Hut there they
seemed to think that their buty
ended. They left the work to bc
carried on for the most part by
the women. The business man
would say that he was too busy
when he was approached and ask
ed to head any movement. Thc
gulf between the pastor and thc
businessman seemed to bc widon
cning. lb- could hardly bc persua
ded to walk a few blocks and at
tend a meeting ol' the conference

ridden miles and spent two or
three days nt a meeting of the
conference. Ile was absent from

Dr. Kilgo demonstrated thc
need of thc business man in tho
Sunday school and his effect on
the,voung' boy. When the chil
dren are small a lady is the best
teacher. Lut when the boy get
to putting on long pants and to
sprouting a mustache he feels that
he must get away from petticoat
government and unless a man was
present to take him in charge he
would probably bo lost to thc Sun
day school if not to thc church.
