even prevent a candidate from
passing around a 3A cent plug of
tobacco,in extracting the juice from
which there is so much innocent
and genuine pleasure; the fumes
of the aromatic and redolent social
cheroot would forever cease to rise.

has our sup port, even if all the

-Considerable interest centered
in a "Spelling Bee" at the Graded

participated ini by the pupils of

There was several visitors present.
Rev. 0. M. A bney read sketches
f-rm "Uncle Remus," much to the
delight of all and made a timely
talk after wards, The spelling con
test was spirited and the tug of
words finally narrowed down to
four pupils, Frank McFall, Edwin
Etarle and Misses Cecil Hester and
Elisa MctDaniel. The boys conclu
ded that it would be the gallant
Sthing to allow the young ladies the
liberty of standing up last. This
left the finish to the two young la
.dies; Miss Cecil tripped and left
Miss Eliza alone, who did not ob

Views On The Pension Law.
I will give my views on the pen
lon law of South Carolina.
It is unjust in many parts.
'First: I believe any one that
ul.isted of his own free will, and
Lid believe that secession was the
'ight course to pursue ought not to
Iiaw any pension.
Second: I believe every inan
hat was forced or went to the war
nerely becaumse this was his coun
ry. and fought, ought to draw a
>ension if he is not able to ilve [
I don't believe It just for somne
o drawv pensions that never fired a
un in the war, and their families a
rawing the tenth while they were
rom home. I don't think it just for
man to work his family and pay t
0 per cent of all they made to <
:eQp up the war, and, at the close i
f the war, lose all he has and then
n his last days) tax him to keep
p others that don't deserve it.
But such is life. So 1 reckon
hey can't maka a law that will fit
11l, so we will have to work along
he best we can.
