Iii nuti King hidwari from

Atlanta Constilution.
I don't know whether I can write a
letter or not. I will ry. The effort
will keep ne from thinking about my
self. For a month L have been play
ing " Billy in the low grounds," but I
had a good doctor who has nursed mne
night and day and cheered mc up and
comforted me and I am on the up grade,
though as the (eorgia crackers say, 'I
am powerful weak." Tis doctor is
my son and he says he has not forgot
ten how his mother and I nursed him
for three long months in Florida and
saved his life, and now I shall not lie
if ho can help it. I take all his medi
cine, quinine, strychnine, calonml,
spirits of nitre and capsules without
number, and tonics, too, and if I get
well I will never know what cured me,
but he will. What would the world do
without doctors? Iiing l dward and I
would have (ied last week.
About twenty years ago 1 had a spell
like this one, for I had been working
in the water all day. trying to (lain up
the branch in the meadow so that the
children could go in bathing. That
night I liked to have died, and old I)r.
Kirk was sent for and worked on ine
for three or four (lays and got me up
again. My wife told ime then that if
I didn't be more careful of myself I
wouldn't live out half my days. She
told me the same thing the other day,
and she knows. Old l)r. Kirk is a
trump. lie was our fami'y doctui
until he got old and tire- ' ii(L moved
away to live with his child''. liefore
he moved to this place . South
Carolina he had a love -e over
there, and he had a rival, id they
fell out. The girl woul(ln a either
one of them and the other 1el,w heard
that the doctor had told stories on him
to the girl, and so after the doctor lo
cated here his rival wrote to him and
demanded a retraxit or else a light.
The doctor wrote him a stinger and re
fused to make a retraxit, but would ac
cj'pt his challenge and light him until
Hades froze over, and as the lighting
code gave the challenged party choice
of weapons and time and place and
distance he should choose rifles at long
range and the next 29th day of Feb
ruary as the timie, and the other fellow
must stay where lie was and shoot over
this way and ho (the doctor) would
stay here and shoot over that way and
both must aim high so as not to hit
anybody between them.
But I must stop now and take
breath. A good long breath is what I
wan,. The old woman was asked what
disease her husband (liel of and she
said the doctors differed about it, but
she always believedl he <died for lack of
breath. I don't want to go that way.
I was ruminating about those physi
cians, for doctor is not the proper
name. Doctor means a teacher of any
thing whether it be science or art or
law or pharmacy or theology. Physi
cian is the right word. It is a very
ancient name for the profession. The
Bible tells how Joseph got the physi
cians to embalm his old father, but I
do not think it was a very popular pro
fession among the JIews, for it is meni
tioned onily two or three times and1(
with doubt,ful favor. Kiflk Aea had a
disease in his feet and wo~uld not call
upon the Lord for relief, but sent for a
physician, and lie died and slept with
his fathers. T1hen there was a woman
who h.ad had,. an issue of blood for
twelve years anid had suffered much
from many phiysicins and spent all
she had and was nothing bett,er, but,
rather gr'ew worse. The Jews unt,o
this day do not give much patronage
to physicians or qluack mfedlicine. I
never knew but one .Jew doctor,
though there are a few very eminent
ones in the lar'ge cities, for what,ever a
learned .Jew (lees ho does well. There
is a Doct,or Jacobi m1 New York city
who st.and at the head of t,he profession
and is cnisuIlt.ed b)y the rich and great
1110n of the nation.
Now, let, me stop for another good,
long breath. When I was a boy we
didn't, have but onie (doctor in the town,
and lie weighed 300 p)ound1s and was
never in a hiurr'y. IIe left little babies
around ever and( 11non1 and1 wvhen one
canme to our house our' old cook t,old us
where lie got them and she slyly point
ed to his corporosit,y. lie 1had( a litt,le
office on the stieet and a few shelves
wit,h botties oin themi coni,aimniig calo
mel, salts and castor oil, senna and
cammomile and Peruvian bar'k, balsam
of copaib)a, and such simple things, and
in the corner was a skelet.on in a box
that stood1 uprIght, wit,h a screw In the
Bkull, and sometiimes' the little, long
door was open and we school children
could peelp in and1( then rin for our
lives. It, was an awful sight. lint, the
old doctor got too 01(1 and fat, t.o prac
tice and sent to New York for his nie
phiew, D)r. Philo D..Wildman, a st,udent
of Valentine .Mott, the great New York
physician andl surgeon. He was as
smart, as his tut,or and1( went to cutting
and sh%shing our people just like killing
hogs. 'He 'strightened cross eyes aiid
sewed up hare lips and cut stones out
of bladilors. T.he agonIzing screams
of poor -little John Thompson, my

But our little town wasn't big enough
for \Vildttan and so he movedl to Co

About that time the yellow fever
visitedt Savannah, and \Vildnan be
lioved he could stamp it out and that
he was an immune, but, he wasn't. lie
took the fever eight. away and died. It
is a curious coincimdece that three
doctors from our town went to Savan
nah to light the fever and every one of
them took it and died.
liut I was ruminating about the suf
foring and agony that the ad vance in
surgery and physic has saved mankid
and I rejoice that Crawford Laong has
been given the first place In the Hall
of Fame. I was at school in A thens
when his discovery was made, but the
magnitude of it was not realh.ed - Itil
long after. I was one of the firs, to
have a tooth extracted by the use of
his lethean.
Let mne rest a while, for I am weak
and nervous and, as Byron said
" My visions ilit less palpably before
me."
1 have just enjoyed a good, long let
ter from my old school mate, Nathan
Crawfor4,of Lincolnton. lie is the
honored school commissioner of tho
county and will die in harness, I
reckon. lHe is in his eightieth year, but
we were class mates, for he was one
of these sure and slow boys, while I
was preocious and uncertain. Only
three of us left now, for Tom Alexan
dcr is living at Rome. Nathan writes
a good, old-fashioned, cheerful letter,
and says that he never stole Prank
Alexander's watermelons, and hints
that it was Overt.on Young and a boy
of my name. 'l'he only reason he
didn't steal then was that lie boarded
with Mr. Alexander and got a plenty
without stealing. It is too late now
for Imu to assume a saintly morality,
for Ton and I still live to testify. But
it was a good letter and the memory
of Nat Crawford is always comforting
ami refreshing.
Now, for i good long rest.

Scuilig at Grief.''
The Senatorial meeting at Walter
boro was held in the presence of a
thousand voters. There was no spe
cial feature or enthusiasm. The au
dience was just like a Sunmlay school
picnic crowd, and during the four long
hours patiently wailed for the end.
Their interest is concentrated in the
State campaign, for this is the home of
Capt. D. C. Heyward, one of the can
didates for Governor, and it was in
this same grove that such a cordial
ovation was given him not long ago.
The candidates had nothing to say
about each other. EE.veni Latimer
and l'vans se( med to have tempo
rarily buried the hatchet, bitt the
hall has nol. yet been toh(l. As soon
as the up.country is reached the po
litical v/olcanoa may break ouit again.
The meeting was enlled t.o oarder by
Major M. P. Howell, county chuairmaii,
who it,roduaced the fi rst speaker, 110n.

muen. Mar. Heniderson then passed on
to a broad plat.form, where ho was safe
from the attacks of his opplonent,s. lie
spoke on the trusts, impiIerialisml and1
t,he tariff, ending with a st,rong appeal
for a graiid D)emocratic rally in 1904.
Col. George Johnstone twit,t.ed Mr.

pecially in the Cuban reciprocity mat
ter.
IlIe told of his record and the light of
his life in redeeming this low.country
from negro domination. No one else
would undertake the task, for it was
regarded as a forlorn hope, and now
that victoly is conplOte he turns it
over to others and asks that he be sent
to the Senate. Ile has never deserted
or betrayed his people, andi a man's
record is the best way by which the
people can judge ia candidate.
lion. .J. .J. IlIemphill thinks that the
Southern people are laud poor and
argued that the United States has
neither the right nor reason to.go int.o
the colony business. For ' years to
come we have enough territi'y here in
the 1i1nited States to demand our time
and attention, therefore he argued
against colonial expansion.
Air. llemplhill's jokes proved ro
freshing to the hot, weary and patient
crowd. IIe closed with an argument
agaist, expansion and told of the
delusion of Commercial I )omocracv
that cane so near getting a foothold in
this State.
Just before Ex-Governor IKvans be
gan his speech the negro band, which
was furnishing the music for the day,
struck up the old familiar air, " There
Will be at Ilot Time in the Old Town,''
and it was wondered if this was pro
phetic. But it was not. Mr. ECvans'
voice was hoarse from his effort at
Charleston last night.
His argument was an ingenious one,
warning the people against recent con
verts and asking their support, because
he is a Democrat, and proved this, he
claimed, by linding out and denouncing
McLaurin's Republicanism. Because
he was a watchman on the wall he
claimed recognition at the hands of
Ss,uth Carolinians. lie told of his trip
to Cuba and said that the Spaniards
were the only ones on the island who
made any pretence to decency.
Mr. ECvans mad his tariff rform
speech, deeming this the paramount
issue before the country. The Trans
portion Trust is only excee-led in in
iquity by the Virginia-(,arolina Cteim
cal Company. South Carolinians must
rise up against this corporation or they
will be permanently hurt by the com
bination. The penitentiaiy is not pay
mng, therefore Mr. Evans thinks it hest
to turn it into a big fertilizer factory
for the bonefit of the State, especially
the agriculturist. Mr. Ivans was well
received.
Mr. I.atimer had laid aside his dress
suit. of last evening and appeared in
the costume of a prosperous Southern
planter. Every two years, he said,
the people have candidates conic be
fore them and tell them what is wrong
with the country, and incidentally ask
for votes. After election nothing
more is heard of them for two years.
lie turned the hands of time backward
and told what "t we farmers" did and
what "we farmers" accomplished in
IMt)2, when the South Carolinians in
Congress had to step lown and out, and
make room for Reformers, Ile told
of his work and the measures accomt
plished and advocated by him. What
we need is practical business men, not
theoretical onles; 1men1 who work and
will not, be content, with making flowery
sp)eechec. Mr. I,atimer, with apol
ogies to Mr. iIemphilil, told his goat
story, notwithst.anding t.here were
many ladies pr1esent, who blushed and(
hid their faces b)ehiind t.heir hands,
but laughed just tihe same. What We
need in t,his count,ry is eq'ial righlts and
equal privileges; the rich will stay rih
and the poor poor to thle 01nd of time,
bu1t he believes in giving every man an
cgnal chaince.
A voice: Mr. Latimer, it, is re
plorted t.hat you are int.erested in Mex
ican mimng stock. [s it, true?
Mr. L4atimer: Yes, sir; after Con
gress was over 1 had( an offer of Mex

I acceCptedl the option and it afterward

A WVONDlCItFU l4 INVECNTION.
Electric Cars Will Travel att the
Rato of '400 Miles ian Hour.
An elect,ric car which will run at
the rate of 400 mile1s an hour over a
Irack of p)eculiar consatruction) is on ex
hibit,ion at Norfolk, Va. The inlven
tor Is Edward J. Kelly, and his past,
acccomplishiments in a similar line en
tit,le his claims for this maciie to a
respetfuil consideration, IIe has in
successfuli operation several electric
street, ears in Philadelphlia. Ihis p)atent
trolley, 81nd1 Lotst of his patent, swit.ch
is being made(1, with apparently every
pIrospect of success.
When at was announced that, lie had
a wond(erful railway calr on exhibit,ion
great interest was excited among men
who are ordmIlarily very shy of inven
ions for which large claims are amade.
Many of these visitedI the shops of the
Norfolk Electrical company, where the
deovice is oin view. There the model
1car was being rein back and forth upon
the track, wiich wats ab1out sIx feet
long. -The inventor dleclared that the
Is1eedI at, which ihe car will travel is
t restrict,edl onlly to the speed at which
electricity travels on a teleg:'aph line,
- making allowance for a cert.ain amount
of frictios. Ito said he would soon
build a long track, and then he would
show somnethig of the real speed his
car caln attain.
It has been his ambition to provide
a practical electric car which would
travel at a high speed for the purpose
of transporting mail matter between
the large cities of the country. Ile
said: " I believe that this model do
monstrates that a car built on these
lines will reach a speed ranging from
'100 to 400 miles an hour. In other
words, it will cover the distance be
tween New York and Washington,
passing through Philadelphia and Balti
more, in one hour."
Kelly believes that once his railway
is built there will be little telc;raphing
been these cities, and nearly all the
business will be done by lail. lie ex
pects to bring the invention to the
notice of the postmaster general short
ly, and thinks the government will
perhaps undertake to construct the
line.
Kelly's device is novel. The car is
propelled by a magnet attached to it
which takes action upon a series of
iron plates placed between the rails.
These platos are nearly as broad as the
gauge of the road at the en:, while
they taper to a point at the other end.
The sharp ends all point one way, and
the car must travel in a direction op
posite to the one in which the sharp
point of the plates point. The road
must, therefore, necessarily be a
double-tracked one.
The iventor says that it is the na
ture of the magnet to reach the large
end of the plates as soon as possible,
and that it does this almost instantly
alter it " smells" tihe small end of the
plate. When the magnet beneath the
car reaches 1 he broad end of the plate
on the track beneat,h it tihe current is
automatically cut off by the car wheel
until the momentum of the car has
carried it a few inches beyond the at
traction of the magnet by the plate it
has just passed over. '1hon the mag
net " enlivens " again and reaches for
the attraction plate ahead.
" Only ia practical test," he said,
" with i full-sized car will solve that
problem, though my experiments have
convinced nh", thah, the car will travel
at the rate of from 300 to 400 miles an
hour. The model car Kelly has now
on exhilttion is, perhaps, 30 inches
long. It is shaped like an ordinary
box car, but both ends are sharp. It
has four wheels, each as high as its
roof. The big wheels, the inventor
says will decrease the friction, and the
sharp ends of the car will enable it to
go faster through tie air.
'Ple next model made will have the
Wheels set further toward the
cent.er of the car than the first one
made has. As the wheels are set on
the first model, .they offer some resi
stance to t.he air. The current which
will propel the car is carried in one rail
of the track. This rail is positive, the
other is negative.
The negative rail is divided at inter
vals corresponding to the divisions in
the attraction plates between the rails.
One wheel of the car on each side of
it is insulated from the axle, allowing
the current to pass through the con
nected wheel to the magnet on the
bott.on of the car, and from the magnet
t tie connecting wheel on the nega
tive side of the car, forming a circuit,
except, (luring that, interval whein the
circuit, is broken to permit the car t,o
jinmp from plat,e to plate.
Th'lere Isa ftshort, inlterval between t,he
plates as they lie on the t.rack benleathl
thle carV. Mr. Kelly said t,hat, in t,ime
lie believes passengers will embark on
his line, but, they will prob)ably be at
fIrst fearful of t,ravehlng at such hlighI
speedl. " I will,'' he eaid, '' ride on
tile first mail car thlat goes out,. I am
not afraid." The inventor is un
mnarriedl, was bornl at Woodstock, Ill.,
April 16, 1872, and has t,wo brothers
and1( seven sisters, all living in Illinois
and Minnesot,a. Hie ran away from
home whlen qjuite young, learined to lbe
a mahiist, taas had few advantages
ill tile way of schooling, but, has picked
up a great deal of knlowledge of elec
tricity.
The speed of the car may be regulat
ed by raisinlg or depressing tile sharp
points of the plates on the tiack. Tile
car goes slower the more these points
are dlepressedl. When the car runs
upjonl several plates, t,he ends of which
have been reversedl, it st,ops. 'ris is
t,he method Kelly will use ill stopping
t,he car, lie will at stat,ions reverse a
number of the plates, iIe says he will
inet,all in si,ations anl indiicator which
will show just, whlere t,he car is at all
t,imes, lie (hoes nlot believe that tile
road will be cost,ly t,o build, lie says
tile car will run on the ordinary rail,
andl could be0 run over existing imes
were one rail alive andl the track clear
of tile slower steaml or electric cars.
