Mr. August Kohn, writing from
Columbia to the Charleston News and
"Some idea of the manner in which
legislation is rushed in the last hours
of the session and how wonderful it is
that more errors do not creep into the
Acts may be had when it is stated
that, out of the 240 Acts; and resolu
tions adopted, 50 acts went to the en
grossing department after 4 o'clock
Saturday afternoon, and in this num
ber were the appropriatio *bill, the
supply bill, the fertilizer act, and the
2nd circuit bill and other long and
much amended laus."
It is indeed, as Mr. Kohn says, a
wonder that more errors do not creep
into the Acts that are passed in such
a hurried and slipshod manner.
Nine-tenths of those Acts that went
to the engrossing department after 4
o'clock of the last day of the session
should have been finished and out of
the way two weeks before.
There is no certainty that the Acts,
as they were finally written out by the
angrossing clerks, some of whom are
not over competent, were in the shape
that they wete intended to be passed.
And for that matter it is not at all cer
tain that as many as half a dozen
Inembersof the legislature understood
clearly the full intent and shape of the
Acts when they were finally ordered
engrossed for ratification.
Passing Acts in this manner is NV
tie short of criminal neglect of duty.

THE TOWN WITH A FUTURE.
There are a number of towns in
this state that offer most inviting
fields for investmtnt of capital and
the outside world is certainly and
almost suddenly being awakened to
the opportunities here ofluored.
Home people may not realize their
shortcomings just as they often over
look advantages, but the observant
stranger, the man who is seeking a
home, sizes up a community in a
short while. The "dead ones". are
Enterprising men do not look at
the amount of money a community
has nor the number of houses or even
the inectories. They examine the
spirit of the community. Do the
people believe in themselves? Are
they living advertisements for or
against thier town? It may seem a
trivial matter, and yet the unanimity
of purpose, this elbow touch and the
public sentiment -towebds progress
development mean more thgn money
in judging the future of a tdwn.

her boy were well nigh exeausted.
