There was much to forgive; she hr

time, when we were children, that sl
had come into my life.
Ilyla was the only child of III
mother's only brother, anl oflicer In lta
Navy, lost at seal when IIyla was littl
uIore than a baby. IIis widow mai
ried again aftelr a1 barely decent intea
val, and the stc"p-father took a violei1
aver8ion to the little girl. So Ilyl
came to live wtl us, the only relation
who were willing to have hier.
Never were o wo (uains more un
like than she and 1. lit person Ilyla
closely resembled my leautiultl mother
I was like uty tatlier's a ibnily. I tongh
up with boys frotn 1ny babyhood,
was a romp and a tom-Ioy at ten yeara
of age; 1iyla, at eight was, so my moth
er said, a perfect little luly.
"If only Anne wert inaa re like Ilyla,"
she stgned oi+r and over, after m3
various escalpales, netver Ireauitng holl
often my mtisclhiel was suggested b3
her model, who wie the v'eriest littlc
coward that ever Ibreathed. Wher

After that I t ied hard to he gentleI
and more ladylike, and I think I sue

to be like Ilyla.
I think shet mlust. have taken afte

as much as she lwed her niece, wouh

" Surely you are not going to

Aunt Th'Iorntot had no children, I
she was dhevoted to her step-son,
whom she hadl been a mother since

not remiemb)er when I dlid niot love Ii

as I was of them, andt (lie little girl a

I was visiting his mother whien

at the time. Since theni we hasd k
up a more or less regular correspot

of my life, but never a word of ic
had there been in his letters.
Now I was to see himt again taf
six years.
Aunt Thornton bad spent more ti
one summner with Ned in Europe,
once, at least, had offered to take
-with her. Papa would have let me
but mamma objected, and so I sta
at home.
F?or the first time I dreaded a v

myself for the feeling, neverthelesi

and her charm. Would Nod,' lIke
strangers, prefer her to me?
was fascinating when she chose, thal
e she woul choose now, I was wel
. aware. She never took the trouble tc
try to deceive 111.
. " Ned Thornton is just the sort of
.mant whom I think would like to mar
ry," she told me frankly, " and he is
not uy cousin, even though you claim
him as yours."
'1'hus it Caie to pass that I had to
look on and see her play her garne.
She did it so cleverly that she hurt me.
Aunt Thornton blocked it now and
A then, but Ilyla was so adroit that even
Y, she could do little to hiuider. Most
y masterly of all was the manner in
D- which she contrived to keep Ned and
d mo apart. I wandered if he noticed
tC that; it seemed to mhe that he nteed not
C have submitted unless lie wished and
mny heart was very sore because lie did.
Y As for m1e, I was at my worst, stiff
C and self-conscious; Ilyli could always
e make me show to (hsadvantage; never
had she exercised that power as now.
Wretched and miserable, I tried to
t make up my mnnd to the inevitable
t worst, to act as if I d not care, and
Occupy myself with the admtirers who
courted my father's daughter, but it
was hard, and I knew that 1 betrayed
myself sometimes, so 1 retreated farth
er and farther into my shell, which was
exactly what Ilyla wished.
The end came one day, unexpected
ly.
I sat in nll alcove in the library, be
hind a heavy curtaiii, trying to read,
when I heard Iiyla and Ned enter the
room. They were talking, but I saw
no reason why 1 shoulcl take my
presence known.
" So you have noticed how quiet and
unsociable Anne is," Ilyla sa i I, in her
sweetest and most regretful tones.
I Is it possible you don't know why?
It is quite an open cet. The poor
child is breaking her hiearl over Jick
Duncombe."'
" That, fellow!" exclaimed Ned.
Exactly. Thete is no accimting
for tastes, and he and Anne have been
playmates from babyhood. Anl,
really, Jaek isn't half bad, bestcles that
he has a rich uncle in Australin who is
sure to lea' hin a fortune som1e ilay.
I don't think Anne cares for the
money, but she is obstinate enough to

year, and then she can, a11141 will do as
she pleases."
Up to this point I had remained
silent, too amazel to speak, now I
sprang out and eonfronted her.
" lyla White, you know there is
not one word of truth in all that
rigamarole.''
1 For one moment lyla was stag
gered; then she smiled sweetly.
" Am 1 really mistaken? How glad
1r dear Auntie will be!''
V Ier audacity fairly took my breath
away; I *^ave her at look, and turned tc,
' Ned, hiignant.
" " And I think you believed her!" I
said.

U. X. GUNTER, JR,
FOR ATTORNEY GENERAI
Iy .1ohn ill i 'Towill. Iditar llaleshurg
Advocate and Mlember lIotse of R:epre,
sentalives for Lo.sington( Cottily.
Appreciating the importance of th<
otlico of Attorney General, and feeling
th necessity of the proper man foi
that posi.tou, it is wittl gratitcatior
that Ne note the positive announce
mont, of Assistant Attorney General U
N. Gunter, J r.. of Spartanburg County
as a candidate for that position.
We have known J. X. Gunter, Jr.
from his boyhood, and we always knev
him as a bright, industrious and stu
dious lad, never forsaking whateve
duties that may have been at hand
lie showed a pet sistence and detertn
nation of will of which few young me
can boast. Ils character as a boy wa
solid, influential and moral. Sine
manhood these traits have romsine
the same in kind, but each has beo
polished, moulded and beautified b
his conetant contact with books, me
and experience. He has never boe
enticed from his active wor-k into th
Holds of pleasure and idleness, but h,
ability, application and detorm!natio
U. N GUNTi, .in.
(Iccuiles a high pliaco today in p)olith
for his purity of motives, sincerit,y
Purpose5 and indohpornoe of act,ion.
Mr. Gunter, the son of aL Confederal
veteran, was born andl reared ia tl
town of Batcsbuarg, in Le3xingt(
County, antd hats r p)ont his liftt co ope
ating with his fello.v countrymlen
laboring for the welfare of his naLil
State. After completing his hig
school courso under such protnino
men, among others, as M. [C. Polk, 10g
nOW a succassfuli attorney of l' igefeli i
and D)r. A. J1. S. Thomas, the finishe
editor of the i3aptist Courier, hie onto
od the South CaLrolina College an
studied law under that powerful foui
der of law, Dr. J1oseph D)anlei i'opu
guaduating with highest honors.
After being admitted to the bar hi
began the p)ractice of his professio
and soon his ability as a lawyeor wi
recognized by those who came in legi
contact with him, for soon Attorno
General Barber appointed him to th
p)osition of Assistant Attorney Genera
which position he held to the end<
the term. When Hon. G. Duncan lie
linger came into oflice be realized the
Mr. (Gunter was the right man in th
right plaee, and he retained him in hi
same position, to which he was reaj
pointedl by General fBeilingor, makin
three times that his honesty, abilit
and experience as a lawyer and his ir
tegrit,y as acitizen has been recogniz .
by the headst of the legal departmen
As Attorney General Mr. Gunter ha
made a record in keoping wit,h ai
other positions he has ever held. Sine,
acting in that capacity Mr. (Gunter ha,
argued on behalf of the State more thai
half a hundred eases before the Su
preme Court, many of them Involving
the most intricate and puzzling ques
lions of law, and he has be~en succss
ful In eighty per cent, of the cases
The records show that tiuring this
period he has appearetd before the
high estn trbunal tof the State in about
one hundred casts, motions, etc, wit,h
a record surpassed bly no other prac.
titioner in the State.
The most important duty imposed
upon the oflico of A ttorney General is
that of advising public ofliciala. Every
written Opinion gi,en by Mr. Gunter
has been published in the annual re
ports of to At,torney ,General for the
information, Inspection and criticism
of the public. Some of these opinions
have involved questions of vital inter
est to the public, and in no instance
has a single opinion rendered by Mr.
Gunter been reversed by the Courts,
but sustained absolutely. Among those
now recalled was the famous school
chart oiion, whereby in an opinion
to the State Superintendcent of ECduca
tion Mr. Gunter advised that the pay
certificates issued for~ soho6i charts
Were ille;al. thaereb ain to e tee
school fund nearly one hundred thous
and dollars. Another was an opinion
to the effect that schools operated un
der the general free school law could
not charge incidental fees of students,
but must operate free in fact as well as
nane. This, too, was sustained by the
Supreme Court. Likewise others in
volving quest,ions of taxation, salaries
F of ollicers, etc., have been invariably
F sustained when the question involved
has been tested.
I Probably no lawyer in the State is
more familiar with duties and functions
of the various departments of State
and their relationship to each other.
This has been acquired by study, ob
servation and experienco, and is very
essential to the ollice of the legal a.1
visor of the State. This accounts ini a
great ieasure for the complete con
tidonce bestowed upon Mr. Gunter by
the various State ollicers and the ju I
ciary.
There is an"ther unanswerable rea
son why tho present Assistant A'
torney General should be entrusta d
with the of1ice of Attorney General.
By direction of the General Assembly,
and in pursuance o' the terms of the
platforms of the State and national
democracy, the Attorney Gneral has
instituted suits against the continua
tion of wealth to inonopollz ; the neces
sities of life to a(luceze the life blood
of the people. Whatever may be the
immediate result ofisthese suits, there
is no question that the efforts already
made have done a great deal to etag
ger corporate greed and will result in
good by strengthening the laws and
encouraging the people and the law
makc rs to further elforts with a hope
for final triumph. Mr. Gunter has
been active in the pe,ople's behalf, and
as he 18 essentially a people's man, be
ing unfettered by corporate prejudice,
always arrayed on the side of the pub
lic, with no obligations to corporate
combinations for past favor-, he is well
calculated to carry on t ac light to re
strain corinrato greed and insolence
when in violation of law.
Believing that there is no r:-ason
why the present Assistant Attorney
General should not be promoted, he is
respectfully commended to the Drmo
cratic voters of South Carolina its a
candid ate for Attorney General.
