Rev. R. H. Lupo filled his
first appointment at Porter's
Chapel last Sunday. We hope
everybody will be highly pleased
with him for their pastor.
We noticed in the paper that
all the doctors in Pickens have
signed a pledge not to go into
any tenant's home unless the
landlord signs a certificate to
assure him of his money. That
is not right. The doctor just as
well take chances for his pay as (
the lawyer, merchant, farmer 1
or any other profession. You
say the landlord will have to
sien a certificate for the tenairt. I
What are you going to do with t
the cotton mill people: are you
going to have the president of'
the mill to sign for them? And
what are you going to do with
the people that live in rented
houses; are you going to haye
the owner to sign for him or let
him die? It seems that the doc
tors want.the landlord to stand
good for other people's debts.
The health of this section is
very good at present. Should
anyone get s'ck and no one will
vouch for him ws can give him
some boneset tea and sassafras
tea, and if that won't bring him
out we can fall back on Mr. I
Wonder how the mail carriers

Our Tenant Class
I have been wondering what
would be next and the remedy
to meet existing conditions. I
remember some fifteen or twen
ty years back that the word
went out that some doctors had
met and formed a trust or com
bine. They passed a res->lution
that when a man failed to pay
for services rendered by one
doctor that such a person was
put on the blacklist. No other
was to render services until the
debt was paid.
As to what effect this had
with the people or to what ex
tent it was carried out, I cannot
say; but from later actions it
would indicate it did not bring
the relief sought for.
Only a few years back the re
port went .forth that another
meeting had been held and that
an agreement was that for ser
vices rendered prices would be
double what it formerly had
been, and it would appear that
this has not brought the relief
required, and the last report
comes forth asking that the
landlord give the tenant an or
der-a pass, the tenants call it.
To some tenants it is humiliat
ing, seeming more like slavery
time-a pass.
But the question to solve is
why the doctors wish the land
owners responsible for toe ten
ants' debt. Does the law that
gives the landlord a lien for
supplies give him the right to
enter doctor bills against the
tenant as a lien? If not. -why
not all men bear their own risk;
the action of ou- doctors with
no uncertain sound: but it may
be that if he. wuid- stop and
think of the way the world is
moving, he would not b. so
hard. Then, at the same time.
if our doctors would give more
strict heed to the word of holy
writ they might be the means
of bringing relief inother ways
I want all to read the religious
reports and you will learn that
not half the money given in the
name of foreign missions is paid
out to have the gospel preached,
but is used to establish hospitals
and dispensaries arnd buildings
ing, and other expenses in dif
ferent ways. Now, while our
people are so liberal along these
lines (I am not), why not bring
these things home and help our
doctors to relieve conditions with
our tenant class, who are reap*
ing down our fields.
L.et me appeal to all you who
give to establish hospitals and
dispensaries and sdch like in
foreign lands to give it to re
lieve conditions at home.
We need not be so liberal as
to send such great sums of mon
ey to other countries and for a
name establish all these free
dispensaries for (the dagoes of
the world to the neglect of
home, At your next meeting
take a collection to ht Ip the.doc
tors to relieve conditions at
home, and don't go before the
people in the house of God with~
a spirit of deception, call every
thing mission to get money'and
send it off to be used as mention
ed to the neglect at home
Mark you this, such barriers
will sooner or later have to be
broken up if we save the cause
most dear to us. Jo Jo.

Earthquake Shock
Felt Here Wed.
An earthquake of sufficient t
violence to cause a number of.
chimneys to topple rover was
felt throughout the Piedmont a
section of South Carolina at 1230 4
o'clock: last Wedriesday after
noon. Thertrembling of the earth i
continued for five or six seconds 1
and caused people to run out of C
their hous'.s in alarm. In open t~
country a low rumbling noise a
was heard. The shock does not -
seem to have, been distinctly felt
except in the.Piedmont region
of the Carolinas.
In Union county the shock1

ering fell in rnany residences.
Many chimneys fell down.
Many people in Pickens felt
the shock very distinctly.
