It is not necessary to journey to the
[4atin quarter of Paris to find lving
romance, stories of unfulfilled ambi
tions, empty cupboards, hlat purses and
sometimes starvation itself. New
York city, that Mecca for American
genius, is filled to overflowing with
ambitions mon and womon who flock
there with high hopes and beating
hearts. and who, once lost in the city's
struggling mass of humanity drift
lower and lower, and finally seek oc
cupaition In the most humble and bit
ter paths of life. Such creatures of
misfortuno were the tenants of a small,
sliaky structure in lower Now York,
a building that had so outgrown its
usefulness and decent appearance that
it was known as The Ruins," which
naic was most significant when one
considers the financial condition of the
old house's occupants.
" We lived in " The Ruins," Tom
and 1, pegging away at our pictures
and )raying for that blissful day when
faie and fortune would come, when
we could shake the dust of "The
!uins" from our foot and journey away
to somo delightful spbt beyond the
reach of bill collectors and out of the
IWosAic sound of vegetable carts and
coal wagons. It was this thought of
coming wealth that kept us on our
foot, that buoyed our sinking spirits
and made us laugh when our hearts
wore crushed under a load of sorrow.
Were we unhappy ? No, for we had
each other, and the love of man and
woman is a healing balsam in times of
misfortune. To be sure, each grieved
to see the other in want of those little
luxuries which make life worth the
living, but had we not each other's
luspiring words of hope to cheer the
way and make the rough places loss
sharp and painful ? Had Tom been
alone, had I been alone, the dreary for
sakonuess and the agony of unceasing
disappointment would have been be
yond all human endurance and-well,
who can tell what fate would have
been ours ? It is a harrowing thought,
and a foolish one, but women are wont
to dwell on " what might have been,"
even if it makes them miserable.
Our neighbors, the other tenants of
"The Ruins" were conditioned like
ourselves. Like us, too, they wore
shabby clothes and run-over shoes and
supplied the wants of the " inner man"
by buying articles of food at the corner
grocery and cooking them over the
blaze of a smoky gra#, fire or an ill
smelling sputtering oil stove. There
wore six or seve, of them, our neigh
bors, and every week or two one would
disappear, no doubt to go into cheaper
lodgings, while a new face and an un
familiar but equally shabby figure
would take his or her place. We saw
little of the other tenants, meeting
them only in the dusty, bleak hallways
or on the creaking, unsteady stairs.
Sometimes they would murmur good
morning or we would exchange a growl
of h atred for the landlord of the crum
bling "Uuins," but more frequently
we passed in silence, slinking hurried
ly along as if ashamed of our parcels
of provisions or our three-season gar
ments. This had been the condition
of our social aflairs until one gloomy
April day, when there came a timid
knock on our door, which knock I
answered with no great feeling of
happiness, fearing an un-looked-for
visit from the uncongenial landlord.
My apprehensions were groundless.
It was the little Gecrman governess
who lived in a cheerleus back room on
the floor above.
"I heard youri husband go aw ay and so
took the liberty of coming to sec you,"
shte stamumered in broken English, as
a pretty 1)1ush of embarassmnent cr im
sonied cheeks which were usually of a
cold and unhealthy whiteness.
"I have waited to cozuoe for such a
long, long time. it is very lonesolue,
this New York, is it not? I think one
co~uld (lie and not he0 found for years
unless it was by the landlord when he
Ccomeis to colleet his fees each week.
The landlord, one is only sure of him;
he never fails, he nevee' forgets, he
comes each Wednesday with hand held
out for the money and his wrinkled
old face is all pinched and puckered
with avarice. Ach. I hate him, the
She paused for brcath. I took Tom's
palette, covered with paint from the
one comfortable chair in the room and
begged my visitor to be seated.
"You and your husband are both
artists ?" she continued, talking fast
andl never waiting for replies to hem
qluestions-" you imust be hanpy. Yes,
you are happy, for 1 hear you singing
sometimes, and when I see you and
your husband on the struct he is al ways
holding your arm as if you were a
picce of rare pJorcelaiin. You are the
only person in this dreary lalce-thls
ruin, as they call it-w ho cvcr smiles.
T1he recst-ah !they go about like
ghosts, creeoping up and down. ump and
down, the stairs as if they'd die at so
much as the sound of their footsteps.
Oh, this America, it is awful-it is
terrible. I think sonmetlines I shall
die. I think sometimes that I can live
no longer in this vault, where p~eople
are neither dead nor alive. If only I
had more work, if only I could earn
more money andl get a little more room
somewhere in the fresh air, and get
where I can see trees and green
things. And this noibe- this endless
roar of wagons and clanging of street
car bells !Ah, I fear I am going mad
-that my brain is ill--"
It was the sam11 old story-little or
no work, wretocdness of heart and a
desperate lack of money. I pitied her
and felt that strong sympathy which
only one woman can have for another.
How much richer was 1, 1 thought
than this poor1, friendless woman alone
in a foreigni country. How~ could I
comlain after that ?
Shze told me her history ; her crim
sonmed checks grow brighter as she con
tinuedi and her hands miovedl nervously
as if she were ill.
HeIr mothber, it secoms, had been a
widlow of considerable wealth andl

When sht'., my viltor. was IifItoen
years old, her motler m earried again.
The step-father, tmuv ing~ tMt usual ol

thereafter positively refusedl 1eveni tto

disposal. lie entered into beveral on
terprises which failed dismally ;then
ho began to specul at', iIth the usual
results. In four years the idow'y
little fortune had drifted away and her'
husband plungedl in1to dissipations that
soon brought his earthly career to an
end. Mlother and (laughter struggled
along as beost as they coul d, giving

where opportunities for work and ad

She and her mother wore to come to
him, to a little home that he would
have ready and waiting on the other
side of the great oceau.
3he smiled bravely when he loft her,
but as she watched his broad figure
disappear in the soft evening twilight
4espair seized her heart and strange
forobodings made her tremble with
fear and distress.
What an age It was until his first
letter arrived! The waiting for it so
filled her thoughts that she failed to
notice that the dear, frail mother was
growing weaker and paler each day.
Before the second letter reached Berlin
the mother was dead.
For six months the young girl
breasted the storm of poverty. Then,
to her gi'eat .'oy, her lover in far-away
America wrote that she was to come
to him at once. She gathered up the
small bolongings and heirlooms that,
although worthless in a money sense,
were of such priceless value to her,
and with these she sailed away to her
When the great boat landed her in
the noisy city of New York, she found
iher way to an address that her German
sweetheart had sent ncr, expecting to
lind there a friend of his, who could
put her on a train that would take her
to the small town in Pennsylvania
where he had secured work. There
he would meet her at the station, and,
after saying over the holy words that
were to make them husband and wife,
take her to the little home he had pro
pared. The plan was a good one, but
something was wroug somewhere. At
the address in Now York there lived
no person by the name which he had
written in her letter, and the poor girl
was in despair. She found lodgings, and
the next day journeyed on to the little
Pennsylvania town, where she was un
able to discover the whereabouts of
her betrothed. With but a few dollars
left she roturned to Now York, and by
some miracle immediately secured om
ployment as a governess. In another
week she was on her way to Mexico,
having in her charge two small child
ren of a wealthy Gothamito.
Thon came two years of hard work,
during which she went from one situa
tion to another, and finally became our
neighbor in " The Ruins."
" I have but two p upils now," she
explained. " Ono I am teaching
i'rench, the other German. But two
pupils-they bring me hardly enough
to pay my rent and to buy fuel and
provisions. I cannot hold out much
longer-and I though perhaps you
could tell me where I could get work.
I have tried overything-overything !"
I promised to help her even while
doubting my ability to secure employ
ment for her, for I know that hopo
never fails to wtrm the heart and that
encouragement is pleasant even to the
doomed. She said good-bye and went
up the dark, creaking stairs. As she
took my lingers I noticed that her
hand was hot and fevered and that her
eyes looked strange and restless.
After hearing that poor girl's story
I almost fancied myself a millionaire,
so much better and happier was my
lot than hers. The old furnitur ap
peared less awkward and scratched,
the faded curtains seemed to brighten,
even the old cook stove did not look so
bad after all, and when Tom came
home I fussed over him in a way that
made him say:
"Deair, I'm always afr-aid of you
when you act like this: it's sure to fore
i-un a qfuairrei." And then we laughed.
Th'le idea of Tomn in a quarrel was really

it was offered. I knocked several
times on the dooi- hut no answer came.
Then I fancied that I hear-d some one

To the Democracy of South Carolina
As the primary election is now ove
and the result ollicially declared I foe
it my duty to thank my friends and sup
porters and to say a few words to th
public at large. I came to the Govci
norship of the State with the policy 0
the Reform movement thoroughly out
lined and given to me by the R,
formers who had nominated me and
have been confronted by many dillicul
and important problems for solution
These problems were political, legh
lative and judicial, and while not altc
gether of my own making it was in
duty as the leader of my faction t
shirk no duty Imposed upon meiby in
party, my predecessor in ollico or th
General Assembly. Under such ci
cumstancos, there was but one cours
open to me, which was to carry out a
faithfully and as earnestly as possible
and with all the imeans placed in m;
hands, the laws of the State and th
expressed will of the majority.
In the performance of my duty I me
with most serious dillicultics and neccE
sarily made many enomics, more p1olit
cal than personal, for the reason as I
well known there has been from th
beginning of the Reform movement ul
to the present time a minority factiol
which have been active, vigilant, bil
ter and untiring; ready to take an;
course or adopt any measures calcu
lated to make my administration i
failure and to restore them to power
From this faction I could expect noth
Ing save implacable opposition to in
administration. I, of course, was no
surprised at their bitter opposition tL
my election to the position of Unite
States Sonator, but I did expect th
support and hearty co-operation of a
least the beneficiaries of the Re3fori
movement. Had [ known at the be
ginning what was to occur during th
campaign, I might well have said
" Save nme frou my friends and I wil
take care of my enemies." No doub
many changes bad taken place in th
minds of individuals on matters con
nected with tbc Reform movement an,
the State government. The final resul
of this election, unfortunate as it is t
our faction and to me, is due, in th
Irst instance, to the thorough organi
zation of the Conservativo minority
wih fought me with all their bitter
ness and vituperation, not for the rea
son, as is sought to be inculcated b
their newspapers, of any unworthines
on my pa't, but simply because I rc
presented the Reform movement, an
the principles which they had fough
since I'J0. This was made to sucece
by the co-operation of my so-calle
friends and members of my ollcia
family who,while pretending to sui1
port me and my administration, wer

THE REBATES ON BOTTLES.
The State Paying 111gh Irles for
ifortor Goods-St. Jullia Yates
Gettilig ll1s Shiare.
News and Courier, 16th inst.
While the dispensary investigation
was gozing morrily on in Columbia last
night, there wits a gentleman in
Charleston who iad storiles to tell
wherein alleged bad management was
made clear. Just where this informa
tion came from is best, for business
reasons, to be withheld, but the facts
are all on file and if necessLry can be
procluced Oi very short notice.
It, has long bon a matter of specula
tion why the diopensary should pay
more for bottles than was previously
done. Early in the spring it was stated
that thu dispensary needel ton or
more carloads of flasks and bottles to
be packed during the summer season
wh Ilo tho glass factories were closed.
Completo speciflications and samijples of
bottles and skeleton packing cases,
sUich as are r ow used, weIe given to
responsible parties, with *instructionis
to quote the pr'co on green bottles of
cor'tain weiights and in carload lots to
be delivered in Columbia. The posi
tio assurance was given that the
grieen waroe, which had been extensive
ly used atL the dispensnlry, was more
satisfactory than the flint ware, Lso in
use. Mr. Scruggs anmd Mr. Gaston are
both onl record ias having cotsplaiined
to severial parties about the indilfe'rent
ware being furnished by a house in
Acting on this at ceritain responsible
house in New York submitted specifi
cations in groen wvare of a better
quality than the dispensairy has been
using. At the May mueeting of the
present board of control bids were ru
coived aecord i ng to these speci ficaLtions
ILL the following prices : EILIf pint
flasks, ) c,unces in weight, at $2 .15 per
gross: pint liasks, 1i ounces, :3 80 per
gross; quarts, 21 ounces, *6 75 per
grose. These were the weights do
sired by the board. The board it the
same time called to the attention of
the mianufacturers that the bottles
they had been using weighed much
less, although the first contract made
with them specified the above weights.
Hero is w hat thc dispensary people re
ceived: Half pints, 8 ounces. Car
load after carload of these good were
sent. Th prc pltid were : Half
pints $2 ;_, pints $3 80, quarts $7.
The attention of the board was
called to this shortage in the weight.
The New York house offred to furnish
these weights of the finest quality of
green ware It $2 -10 for half pints *3 75
for pints and $6 75 for quarts. It was
somewhat strange that after the dis
pensary had used hundreds of cases of
the green wari'e froI se0 of the best.
glass manufacturers in the countr'y
that they should suddenly discover the
necessity of piaying so much higher
pr'ices for flint ware at $2 910 for half
pints, $4.25 for ptints and $7.:I0 for
(uar1i-ts. Sixty cars at this pr'ice ar1C
said to have been ordered fromn parties
in Baltimore, and ten cars from the
house in Ildiana. This is quite an in
crease over the estimatet ten that
were wanted for summer bo ling, It
ha:, been said that the style of packing
which is in wooden skeletan ca:es
makes this difference in the cost, but
this is not the only reason for sich an
tdvance, as ik proved by the fact that
the bids made for the green ware
called for the same packing, and the
prices were for delivery in Columbia.
While bottles and cor'ks are a ver y
small par't of the purchases of the dis
pensary com par'ed withl whiskey and
beer, IL is a matter of general inter'est
all the samne why they should pay mior'e
for' coiks than they could have gotten
them direct fr'om the manu factur'ers
for'. It has been said repeatedly that
during the Iirxst, year' of the d ispensar'y
something over' $ti,000 was spent for'
cor'ks. At that timne corks wereC sold
in large quantities by the var'ious
leadinr. cork manufacturers at a dis
count of 80f andi 100 per cent. from the
l isO. pric. Qluotations wereL giveni the
disper ary peolet at these prices, bout
it seems that they priefe rredl to buy at,
'o per cent. discount from the list.
Thlis woult' imake a difference of many
hundr'ed dollxars in a l itt: e maIL~ter of
corks. Sonme peoplec who keept track
of such matters say this was done to)
accotumnodate a few friends in Cincinu
The bottom of the whole business
is that the d ispenmsar'y decided to get
flint war'e and it inight be wiellI to state
just hmere that the Ilinut ware wa purt
chased froim the P ennsylvania Gia:-s
Company, of Andlerson, Ind., and that

I ple of South Carolina and the Reform
3 1 ors, in particular, that while I am dis
3 1 appointed in my aspirations, I shall
3 not be found sulking in the camnp of
r the Reform party or in the counsels of
3 the true Democracy. I expect to live
i and die In the Stato (if South Carolina.
- My political faith will ever romain
i true to the Reformi Democracy and 1
3 shall continue to be a factor in the
social, political and industrial affairs
e of my State In the future as'- I have
been for the past ten years. I have
been honored by my people by being
placed in the bi hest posItion in their
gift. For this am duly and truly
grateful. I shall always endeavor to
command thoir respoet as I try to de
serve and win :the high honors they
have conferred upon me. Neither 1, the
Reform pa:ty nor true Democracy are
yet dead and if God spares nie we shall
be heard from in the future. As Gov
3 o-nor [ have discharged my duties to
the best of my abilities, and I at
satisfied that a returning senso of
justice will vindicate any wrongs done
eum. Tino cures all things and there
I Is nothing to prevent us all from mov

Columbia, S. C., Sept. 12.
WE IEEKIiY CItOP BULEdTIN.
This bulletin covers the weather and
crop conditions for the week ending
Saturday, Sept12, and in its preparation
were used reports froim one or more
correspondents in each county of the
The past week wias a hot one oi the
3 whole, with two days quite cool, that
6 greatly reduced the average weekly
excess oyer the normal temperature.
The midday heat was intense, and as
E great as In Julyor August. 'The maxi
mum temperature for the week.was 95
on the 7th at Beaufort and on the 12th
. at Spartanburg ; the minimum was 53
. on the 9th at Cheraw.
B The weekly mean temperaturo was
77, ranging from -,I at Greenville to 80
at Poverty Hill. The normal is ap
2 proximately 75.
The past week was the dryest one of
the season. Tho only section of the
. State that had any rain was a nar-row
L strip along the North Carolina border,
ircaching from Greenville to Lancaster
county. All other portions of the State
were absolutely without rain, other
t than possibly a light sprinklo on the
3 (ith. The d rought is becoming intenso.
I The approximate normal rainfall for
3 the past week Is 1.27.
t There was scarcely any cloudiness
a during the week, the average plercen
.. tage of possible sunshine was 92, and
a the lowest was 14 per cent. at Reid,
There wer no high winds or local
3 The week favored farm-work, and
- was especially favorable for saving the
I lint of cotton in the best possible con
t dition. The drought is, however, dis.
tressing in soe localities, as water
fo- stock is scat ce. The ground is too
. dry for- plowing and seeding, although
somne fall oats have been sown.
Vegetation of all kinds is fast dying,
. and one correspondent in -fdgefield
County repoi-t- that oak and hickory
3 trees and shrubbery dying friom eflects
of continued dry weather.
I The weather is too hot for har-vest
tinlg corn. althoeagh the crop Is entirely
. made. It is feared that it will be in
f ested with r.eevels sbourld it be housed
now. Seine cotrn is being gatheredl
.ft-om bottom lands subject to overflow.
e Cor-n is dry and~ hard, but on many eai
the grain is shrunken.
There is a unanimnity among the co
. r-espondents of this service on the con.
e ditin of cotton :it is that the yield is
a shor-ter than previously estimated,
. Cotton ,is about, all open and over half
a picked :some fields being entircly
a pickeli out. Buolls continue to open
e pi-rmaturely, and the seed in such
.boils is not matured nor does the lint
Isparate cleanly f-rm the seed in gin
e it ib' gener-ally stated by the corres
pontdentts that the entir icro wOll vi x b
- picked by the end-of this month, if the
Sweather continues as favor-able as it
- has been.
S They also have reduced their esti
o mates of the probable yield and now
very generally put it at half a crop.
3 The plant is dying and it can be deli
a nitely stated that, there wvill be no top
a crop. Sea-Island cotton is in need of
. n-ain. It showed deterioration in coni
.. dition for- the week.
I Peas are not doing well gener-ally-.
although in Union they appear to be
a fruiting heavily, bitt the better con
.(dition of all minor cr'ops irn the up
a counities i-, due to thte cop)ious rains
vidusn the latter por-tion of the prne
r Turnips in most places at-c a failure
so far-, for- wvhere the seed germi nated
t atnd cam~tie up the plant, was suibse3Ouent
.1ly killed by the intense mid-day heat.
' ructrk along thle coast need~s r-ain

t Sweet potatoes doing fair-ly well in
3 places, but, ar'e generally a peon- crp

) weather also favored gather-ing foraige

Sthe cane is as juicy as usual but all
agree as to tire excellent qluality of tihe
