being tuoked in, it fell down the front
in graceful folds.
Lilian wore silk somewhat against
bor inolination, as she wore fiue gold
bangles on hor arms, but she found cor
tain advantages in being well dressed,
Rho said, and a facility thence in gain
ing the oar of those who otherwise
might have refused her an audience.
Tho Hindoo woman mhe was visiting
had long since accepted her as an ustar
din, or toaohor, and would soon, Lilian
believed, becomo formally a Christian.
On approaching the houso, therefore,
sho was surprised to see outside a young
Hindoo female stooping down at the
threshold and tracing white lines with
dour-a charm, she well know, intended
to ward eM1 evil. This woman had
smeared her face and such part of her
body as was uncovered with a solution
of saffron aiud witer to mako herself
look "fair. " This was one of the super
stitious rites from which Lilian had,
she imigined, quito weaned her friends.
The house was built of sul dried clay
bricks, whitewashed with chuniam and
having inside tho ontranee the usuil
room with a pial, or raisei alcove, oi
each sido for receiving visitors. Lilian,
followed by Nasibm, went in, the Hin
doo woman outside simply saying that
they could enter.
There seemed, Lilian thought, sono
thing very strango about tho placo that
day, but sho was anxious to so her friend
and hurried to the portion of tho house
sot apart for females. She went in, and
then, inured as sho was to much that is
trying and startling, she stood for a
moment petrified. Beforo her, on an evi
dent bier, in a half sitting posture and
covered with bedelothes, she beheld her
lato pupil with the fatal ground rice
aid betel showing between her lips,
and onl her foreeliad the trident mark of
Vishnu. Ljilian know well t.hese secta

TILLMAN'S OPINION OF MARK HANNA.
THE DISGRACE OF THlE LATE
The Ohio Statesian is Rlevardled for
the Wholcsale Prostitution of tho

the Election o(' Senators by a 1i
it. E. Tillman in the N. Y. Sunday VWorld.
The attitude of tho World in the last
eamllpaign was ai disappointment to it,
friends who had expected that it would
linally come out for freo silver and
then give Mr. 3ryan a hearty support.
But while Democrats were disap
pointed that the great Democratic
daily of New York city assumed the
lttituide it (lid, the telling blows which
it has dealt to trusts and monopolies
ild the courage and persistence with
which it leads the fight against corpo
rations and their high priest, Mark
Hanna, must command the admiration
of every ti 1t patriot.
We are making history very rapidly
in this closing lustrum of the nine
teenth ceitury and the two opposinl'
forces in American politics, the people
and organized capital, are alread)
marshalling their forces for the con
test of 1100. The last election, al
though it witnessed th1e triumph of
motey, is acknowledged to have set
tied nothing, and every student of cur
rent events must ralize that the non
dition of antagonism between tman and
tmoney of our' country is becoming more
and~l mfore accentuated every day.
As soon1 as it becatme known that
Senator Shermilanl would teceive thte
portfolio of State in the Cabinet of Mr.
McKinley the qjuestiotn of his sitccessot
camne pr'ominenltly to the front and for
two mnoths the figure of Mark Hianna
has loomed plortentiously above the
horizon as the man wvho was to take
Shermau's placO in the Amect ican
(louse of Lords.
There have been reports, interviews
and sutrmlses almost daily lead ing tile
people to believe that Govetnor Bush
nell and Setnator lVoraker would resist
the demand for Mr. Hlanna's app~oint
mlenlt to lill the Senatorial vacancy
Thlere were patriotic Americans train

ilutt the "husitness methods," for the
ie.- time made 1111 fLn il iar to the Amern

cause he has oppressed and robbed
labor? That he is In fact the cm
bodiment of modern Republicanism
which is more cruel than the ex
slaveholders of the South and knows
no God but Mammon ?
Let the cause be what it may, the
American people have only themselves
to blame for the conditions In which
they now find themselves. The etrug
gle for the control of the government
by the trusts and corporations has
caused us to witness strange sights
within recent years. The Federal pat
ronage and the possession of the veto
power are the prizes fought for in the
A seat in the Senate, which is the
fortress of the wealthy classes and fa
vored interests, is becoming so valua
ble that the election of a Senator in
any State, North or South, whot e mon
ey can be used, Is no longer left to the
people or their representatives. Par
tisan feeling runs so higb as to threat
en rioting and bloodshed. Witness the
scenes in Kentucky last spring, and see
the situation in Oregon now. Then the
elections for Senator in South Dakota,
[daho and North Carolina are too re
cent to need more than an allusion.
They all cry with trumpet voice for the
election of Senators by a direct vote of
The robbery of the people by still
more oppressivo legislation than they
now endure cannot be accomplished
oxcel)t by legislative action, and a vote
in the Senate in the equally-balanced
condition of parties becomes more and
more a prize to be fought for and
alas, 1 must say it-bought. The It.
publican chairman, who is to becomi
Senator, has been actively at York se
curing vottes in tat body.
When Congress convenes in extra
session he Will himself be a membes
of it, and his intimate relations with
the new President will naturally give
him more weight than any man in the
Senate. Thus bribery, the wholesale
debauchery of the ballot, is rewarded
by the highest honor and influence.
The highest honor in the gift of the
State is the prize for the wholesale
prostitution of the American people.
Again I say it marks an epoch in our
country's history, and it remains to be
son whether the triumph of wrong
over right, of falsehood over truth, of
d ishonestj and corruption shall be per
manent. I repeat that the brazen ef
frontery which has brought about thh
object lesson is fortunate for the cause
of hurmanity and patriotism.

---Free Library and Historical So
The name of Piedmont is suzgestive.
With it is associated the name of aeudis
tinguished deceased citizen of Green
ville County, the founder of the cotton
factory enterprise at this place. Also
the name of the now president of the
company, Col. James L. Orr, whose ad
ministration has made his name a
household word among the 1,000 people
who formi the popuation of this model
In 1872 the first mill, No. I, was be
gun building and the mill started in
Mlarch, l87(h. Mill No. 2 was built in
18l and startedi the latter year. Niili
No. 4 w as commenced May 13, 18953, and
started, producing the first cloth, Feb.
261, 18961. These three buildings are
joined together and now appear as one
'tructure (100 feet long by 50. 75 and 103
feet wide, respectively four storie
high, and contain 35,4-168 spindles.
No. 3i mill is just across the Saluda
river at the other end of the damn in
Anderson County, and is a building 289)
feet long by 100 feet wide, four stories,
commenced In 1885 and startcd Decem
ber, 1889), and contains 23,520 spindles,
!naking a total plant of 58,9)88 spin les.
lhese mills are on opposite banks of
the majestic Saluda river, 11 miles from
Greenvile, and U mi'es above Polzer, oin
th e Greenville and Columbia railroad.
T here are over 4000pleratives' dwelling
houses of :3, 41, I and 8 rooms each, hor
izontal weather'-boardling and plaster
ltd, which are rented at 50 cents per
room. There are six good sized frame
store buildings, fouir of which are oeen
pied by separate firms with general
stocks of goods, and two with drumgs.
The company owns between twelve and
thirteen hundred acres of land, mnostof
which is on the Anderson county side
of the river.
Trhe capital stock of the company is
$800,000, but the value of the pilant is
far~ in excess of that sum.
There are three flourishing chiuriches
of the Baptist, Methodist and Pmeshy
terian denominations, and a commodll
ous two story frame hotel, situated on
an elcvation which commands a view
of the whole town site and much of the
surrounding country. This house is
kept'by Mrs. M. A. Callaway, formerly
pronpriletress of the Chick Springs hotel,
and Is one of the places in South Caro
lina where you can enjoy a good segaare
meal three times a day, andi a tidy
room and comfortable bed. There are
two good roomy school houses, equipped
with the latest andl most approved
One of the most importamnt features
of this place is the public educational
facilities that the the company has prio
v'ided, which is perhaps second to none
in a town of eqlual size In the State.
I 'rof. ,J. L Eskewils superlntenden t, and
princip~al of the 4ith grade on the GIreen
ville sidle. Miss Mamic Grant, of Mays
yileo, Sumter County, has charge of the
3rdnt grade, of three graded classes: Miss
Mary Hillhouse, of Greenville, :2nd
grade of two graded classes, and Miss
Mamie Donald In charge of the prima
ry department. At this school there
ar-e up~ward of 180 p~upils. On the An
derson County side is a school equally
as large under the same superintend
ent, of which Miss Nan Crayton, of
Pend loton, S. C., is princi pal. 11cr d o
p~artlmnt is called the 3rd grad e, but,
has four gradodl classes at work. Miss
Luamh Philips, of Pi'kens County, has
charge of the intermediate department
of two grades, and Miss ["annie Horton,
of Belton, has the primar-y departnmnt,
two grad1es. T1here arc In all about 310)
pupils attending these schools, or 10 pecr
cent. of the population.
There is a deeided literary tendency
noticeable here over the usual factory
p opulation, which may be righ tly cred
I ted largely to the fact that the com-|
pany maintains a free library of over
2,500 volumes, which Is increased year
ly 300 volumes by an annual aillowanmice
by the company for that purp~ose.
Mr. A. S. Rowell, overseer of the cloth
department, Is the librarIan and has
been for sixteen years. M r. ii'w~ell is
a literary character andl has recently
published a book entitled "The Silver
fBullet," that Is destined to take high
rank among the publications of the
time. The librarian Informed the
writer that the average is i75 volumes
taken out per wee, wic .. shows.
reading circle 50 per cent. larger to in
habitants than the reports of the libra
rians in large oities besides the numer.
ous visitors. Mr. E0well thinks thi a
flattering compliment to the intIelli
gence of this model factory Population.
Thoro is also a historical Society at this
place, at the head of which is Mr.
Rowell. This society is doing valuable
work in gathering up data and facts of
that portion of the State. All those
things arc of Importance to one looking
for a good place to live.
