Buttering which comes through muscu
lar und nerve exhaustion is most ex
cruciating. The person who is "as
tough as a pine knot" can never ap
preciate the real agony of the peruon
who ls debilitated by fevers, depleted
by overwork, strain and worry ami
prostrated by the energy consuming
heat of a torrid sun until petty earea

Such exhaustion is not followed by
repose, but on the contrary by haunt
ing dreads which still further prey

Man's relation to society causes
such exhaustion and fatigue on the
part of the Individual to become a
menace at times. Therefore thc leg
islature passed a bill forbidding rail
way employes from being kept on
duty longer than a certain number of
hours. Humanity luis also demanded
a limited number ot hours for work
for children and for young women
employed In stores.
Needless fatiguo, lt is said, may be
averted or counteracted. This ls of
Interest to all mankind as well as to
the tollers. Men who huve made a
study of industrial conditions report
that accidents in manufacturing plants
occur with startling regularity at
certain periods of the day. Fatigue
roduces the vitality of the body and
leaves lt open to attack from disease.
A man may carry in his body for
months ' the germ of malaria and it
may make no manifestation, but once
lils vitality and resisting power is re
duced by fatigue, the malaria germ
marshals all its forces und breaks
?Ipwacthe feeble resistance. That is an
illustration to show that it ls neces
sary to keep ono's body In "condition."
Along this lino wc quote from tho
writings of ti scientist in thc New
York Sun who says thut "instead of
lounging in the shops or badly ven
tilated rooms of factories during the
dinner"" hour the toiler would moro
wisely eat bis frugal midday meal in
the open air and spend his remaining
minutes in gentle walking or any oth
er mild exercise that differs from that
of his occupation. The employer
would gain in efficiency of hts work
men if he would furnish rooms in
which they could divest themselves ot
their clothing and take K shower bath
with warm water, followed by a cold
dash, befrro returning home."
High authorities have proved by
laboratory experiments that there ls
no better method of restoring fatigued
muscular tissue to its highest efficien
cy than a bath under strong pressure.

Tho city toilers aro fortunate In op
portunities for euch refreshment in

York. Tho increased oftlcloncy thus
gained may produce far more In finan

ance of such baths. Every factory in

loss from fatigue.

HAND PRIMARY SHOWED

or any available "Junk."
The Governor Spoke.
The governor spoke directly after
Scnntor Smith. He began by saying
that arrangements had beea made
yesterday for a loan of $350.000 to re
pleaish a depleted state treasury- The
rate to be paid was three and one-half
per cent, Uie lowest, he said, at which
the state had ever been able to borrow
fu'ads. By this decreased rate, hiB
vetoes of the appropriation bills had
become an economic advantage.
As soon as the governor had Ha
lalled speaking he left the stage, but
only a scattering few trailed after in
the wake. As the chief executive
stopped from thc stage, there were
repeated calls, "Stay and take your
medicine, governor!" This was an
swered by, "He can't afford it!" which
drew much applause.
When it was remarked that so few
were returning with the governor to
the hotel, someone called out, " I bet
all those came over from Anderson."
Mayor L. I>. Jennings.
Mr. Jennings said that Senator
Smith had thought about what he had
doue for the price of cotton so much
and had talked about it so much that
he actually believed that he had done
these things. "But you are entitled
to have someone in the senate who has
more than one idea," he added.
Ia discussing the governor's atti
tude toward the Charleston situstino
the mayor of Sumter said that he did
itot expect to change one bllndtlger's
or race track gambler's vote, but that
he did expect to opea the eyes of the
people to the fact that this class of
people is trying to deceive them into
believing that they represent the
cause of the people. Mr. Jennings
made sport of the governor's claims
that he would turn out the negro mall
clerks when he got to Washington.
"He cannot do this," the speaker ex
plained, "until he has repealed the
civil service laws, and all the sena
tors in the south can't do that," the
speaker added. The only way he said
these negroes could be deprived of
these jobs woi ld be to repeal the
fourteenth and fifteenth Amendments,
thus depriving negroes of citizenship
rights, "which is the most harmful,"
ho asked, "a few negro, mail clerks,
passing through the state on tra?na,
and earning an honest living, or OOO
convicts turned leone ia your commu
nity, criminals, of every , conceivable
? Mr. Jennings drew a laugh v/?ien
he reminded then that the governor
hus repeatedly said that ho lad no?li
ing to explain, yet came to Abbeville
and consumed his entire time in ex
plaining one casts In discrediting
Richey's broken health idea, tho
speaker said, "Charles P. Morse in

dead. Now he's In the north still
