GOVERNOR HEY WARD.
We beg to extend to the new
Goveruor of South Carolina our
congratulatious with every assur
ance that the people cf Pickens
county will givehithat loyal sup
port and lend to him that encour
agemenit wilhout wvhich. fr:m ei
ery mecticu of the state, no Gav.
ernor need b.,pe for a successful
administratio'n as Chief Executive
of his co.mmonwealth.
Governor IHeyward has a diffi
cult and a delicate duty to meet.
e is equal to the occasion and we
bespeak for him this pro-mis: He
v-ill be Governor of all the people
of S->uth Carolnin. A mnan of abil
ity and integrity and unpledged
in the ways of politics, be repre
uerts the embodiment of those vir
tues and excellent attain'nents
which eminently fit him for the
high office of Governor and quali
fy him for the responsibilities im
posed in that he shall see that the
laws of this state are faithfully ex.
His administration will doubt
less be full of incident and interest
to all the people, and South Caro
lina has honored 'him in placing
him at the head of her aff'airs at
such a time as this. He will do
credit to South Carolina and
measure up among the highest and
best of statesmen and men who
have helped to make this state the
best in the Union.
R10H T, T HE RULE.
Right is the universal guide. It
obtains as a rule in politics as well
as in business. It is all one ought
or can afford to ask, and as little
&s one should seek to give. No
personal considerations and fl(
thought of temporary expediency
should be allowed to intervene
between plain duty and the doing
thereof. Subterfuge may avail for
the present, but the manly, open
honest execultion of convictions
sustained through diligent effort t<
teach the truth, W'ill prove the win
bing program in any Career.
If you do not reach your objec
tive--if you are disappointed --d
mot Count any honest and honor
able endeavor a failure when the
mneans employed and the motive
ipispiring in any undertaking mesas
Ure up to a just and reasonable
~ooception of your duty in the
premises.. If a wrong has been
done and you can correot it, in"
form yourself, if the responsibility
tests upon yo~ and talte no
thought of the o seguences save
fn-so.far as you ad oOn~ious (of
public servants-all people would
mako right their guide, many
things that n1oW see11 vague Wvould
clear up under a vigorous adjust

GEORGE W. WILLI.AtS.
George WV. WilliamsQ, (one of 1
the most interesting of South Caro
lina's older men, died at his home
in Charleston city onl the 6th inst.,
at the advanced age of eighty:
three years. His life was one con
tinuous example of industry and
frugality t,o which all young men
might look for a true guide to liv
ing and honoro b)ly laying the foun -
dat ion of their fortunes.
The examples of such men are
worth much t> our people, for
starting und(er circumstances whieh
fall to most young men in the
South, ho showed that sagacity In
busi ness which is best represen ted
by3 continiuedl effort and judicious
saving which is wvithin the scope
of the possibuilities of every young
man of energy.
In his "letters to young men''
Mr. Williams uinder'took to set
forth his idenas as to what consti
tutes a young maln's duty as well
as to point out his privileges. A
record of his life would mako good

It is announced in some of the
newspapers that the trustbes of
Williamston Female College, now
located at'Williamston, S. C., have
decided to move that school to
Greenwood, S. C.
Barring the botter railroad facil
ities offered by Greenwood we do
not see what advantage is to be
gained by moving this institution
We (understand that Dr. Lan
der is to remain in charge. He
has made a success of this school,
and there are women all over
South Carolina and in fact perhaps
pretty well all over the South,
graduates of this institution, who
foolt upon Willhameton as their
Alma Mater and who, in their
phearts protest against this move.
The fact that Dr. Lander has
been at its head-a man of posi
tive methods and a successful tu
tor and disoiplinarian-coupled
with the fact that Williameton's
health giving looation, aided by if$
excellent water, has no doubt in.

Used It For a Pass.
President. Ingollls of the Big Four
'ad writes ana execrable hand, and
farmelcr living near Springfield, 0.,
s glad of it. One day 31lr. Ingalls
hats ridimg over a division of the
oid and Caine within smellilig dis
ane of a particularly eml)hiatic
iog lea owned by the farmer. Next
ay lie wrote an autograph lit ter to t
lhe agriculturist, complaining of C
lie hog pen. The farmer could not
cad a word of it and showed the
tissive to a Big Four agent. The
itter could not make anything out
f it either, b,"t said it looked like
he passes sometimes issued by
rresident Ingalls. This was a sug
estion to the farmer, who declares
hat he made several trips on the
oad, using the illegible scrawl as a
ass, before conductors discovered
hat it was a protest instead.
A royal wedding is a very expen
ive affair not only for those who
~ive it, but for each guest. The0
>resents necessarily cost the guests
great deal, for only the richest
nd rarest gifts can be offered to
oyalty. Besides a gift each guest
nust leave a sum of money for ev
rv servant and attendant in his
iost's house. As there are numer
ms5 attendants and each one must
receive a "tip" according to his
rank a great deal of money is nec
essary. At the marriage dif the
Grand Duke and Duchess of Ilesse
the guests left altogether $9,000 to
be distributed, besides bestowing
$6,500 worth of gifts among the
servants before their departure.
Dewey's Physical Strength.
Ethough Admiral Dewey is uni
versally known to be halo and
hearty, hardly any one gives him
credit for p)ossessing the great phys
ical strength with which he is gift
ed. One of the Spanish-American
war veterans, who had Jill but lost
the power of walking, called on him
at his Washington home not long
ago and found the admiral standing
on thme front steps. De )wey invited
himt in, hut the disabled aman looked
doub)tfully at thle steps, seeing
which thle athiral reached into the
carriage, p)icked hiim up bodily and
carriedh him upl thle step)s and into
the drawing room, where lie laced
his burden in the easiest chair at
Cost of the Scrap Heap,
The contractor for the New York
rap)id transit subway recently stated
that owing to the great develop

of electricity is n ow only three
years. This is a startling announce

What becomes of all the old ma
chinery, and who pays for the new ?
How long will it be before a comn

Must Have Kissed the Blarney Stone.
On the eve of Minister Wu's de
parture from Washington a young
woman of his acquaintance said to
him that she hoped to visit China
some day', as what he had told her
about his native country had been
so interesting. "But you have never
explained," she added, "why China
men take four or five wives." With
a grave bow the oriental diplomat
said, "My countrymen.take so many
in order that they maiy find in all
of them the beauties and accom
plishments of one such young lady
as you." _______
