The Sentinel is not responsible
for the views of its corres
pondents.
Many Mines in South Carolina
Gold, silver, copper, etc.
many of these could be worked
no doubt with profit; but in our
opinion there is another mine
more profitable than any yet
mentioned, and that is the farm.
Never has the farmer had a
better outlook than now, 'Tis
very tiue that last year was a
short crop year, and many of
our people were disheartened, so
much so that many have left
the farm and gone to work at
the mills or some public works.
But tue men who stick to the
farms are the men who are go
ing to find the gold.
Right here in this God-f avor
ed land of ours, with the finest
climate, fertile soil, the purest
water, the very breeze is laden
with health producing proper
ties; our farm laborers are not
sufficient in number to cultivate
the land; there is not being
enough farm products produced
to supply the demand. So it is
very easy to see that the men
who stick, to the farms will have
a market at home for everything
they can raise, and at good
prices.
The only discouraging feature
we see about the farm is that
some of our farmers come to
town to buy hay and corn to
feed their stock, when they
ought to bring the hay and corn
to town to sell. They could,
and they will do so in a few
years.
Who's the guy that put the
wet in weather?
The Balkan allies say they
will take more Turkey.
The Milwaukee Sentinel re
niiarks that lots of self-made
men would have done a blamed
sight better to have employed
an architect.
The Atlanta Journal opines
that it is easier to deceive a girl
than it is to fool her father's
bull dog. We'll take the Jour
nal's word for it.
The ninth cotton ginning re
port issued by the government
on the 23d instant shows 13,
091,294 bales of cQtton ginned.
South Carolina is credited with
1,192,267 bales averaging 500
pounds each.
Here's to the faithful farmer,
who tills the soil each year, who
raises wheat and nlenty to eat,
and has no wolf to fear; 'who
raises hog and hominy for his
family and himself, who has
11am meat in the smokehouse
and sausage on the shelf.

west, nr.-'t: and south; have

I have not had a man to ask me
for a dime to buy a drink with,
and I have noticed the absence
of bums, and liquor-soaked
down-and-outs on the streets of
the towns of this State. Iwent
home three weeks aao last
Saturday, and I went only three
or four blocks after leaving the
depot, and during that walk
three liquor-soaked bums, white
men, who were simply down
and-out, asked me for a dime.
Around the six or seven bar
rooms that I, passed in that
short walk I saw more drunken
men than I have seen in North
Carolina since last August.
Yes, they are sending the
money to our State for liquor,
and it may be making some of
our folks rich. but I'll tell you,
old man, it is making many of
our people poor.
The Death Penalty
Hon. Fred Williams has in
troduced a bill in the legislature
to abolish the death penalty.
For once the writer agrees with
him.
It is almost unthinkable that we
should live in this enlightened,
progressive age and still cling to
the barbarous and inhuman
practices of the dark ages.
capital punishment cannot be
justified upon any ground. It
is contrary to reason, natdre
and the law of God. Every
man has a right to enjoy that
which God gave him, and which
God alone could give-life, and
no man or set of men either
voluntarily or by promulgation
of law has a right to deprive
man of his life.
The only argument for the
death penalty is the protection
of other lives and virtue in the
pinishment by death of an
offender. But this argument
falls when it is remembered
that murders, rape, and arson,
for whlch the death penalty is
prescribed are of almost daily
occurence and with the death
penalty staring them in the
face.
The most effective remedy
would be to prevent as far as
possible the causes which give
rise to the commission of such
crimes. For example let the
laws provide that liquor shall
not be sold or used except for
compounding medicines under
heavy penalty. Make it a nen
itentiary offence for anyone to
own a pistol. And then provide
a lifetime imprisonment at hard
labor for anyone and everyone
convicted of any of the crimes
for which the death penalty is
now provided, and make the
law so the goyernor should not
be allowed to exercise clemency
in such cases.
It is feared, however, that
Mr. Williams will find it very
difficult to get his bill through
with the sentiment that now
prevails in this State in favor of
capital punishment. A large
per centage of the people seem
ngly favor the practice, and
many became impatient at the
law and take into their own
hands the summary punish
ment of a certain class of crimi
nals, But this should not de
ter him from making the effort
to lead people away f rom such
barbarious practices, but should
enconrage and inspire him to
renewed vigor. He is on the
right track, the one-which leads
ut of darkness, superstition
and practices of the buried
past into the light of the Chris
tian Civilization of the 19th
century. X

Jo Jo Writes Again
Mr. Editor: I want to inform
your correspondent Reader that
I never injected foreign missions
into the controversy. I only
mentioned the collection of
money in that name. the por
tion of that money that was
used for other purposes as men
tioned, schools, dispensaries and
trades called industrial work in
foreign lands.
Reader takes great exceptance
to the mentioning of this work
and sets forth the great amount
of money given for state, home
and foreign mission work. and
mentions the vork that I spoke
of as though he would have you
believe it was mission work.
You can see from the tenor of
his article that he thinks that
our good hearted doctors will
not refuse to treat the poor, At
the same time he defends the
action of the foreign mission
board in establishing free dis
pensaries in foreign lands and
employing doctors to administer
medicine free to both rich and
poor alike. See minutes "of
Southern Baptist Convention of
1908, page 67. It says 38000
treated last year. This report
says some of the hospitals are
too small and they are needing
rore now in all the charitable
work as he mentions.
Would it not be more in the
spirit of true charity to arrange
for our doctors at home, who do
ot ask for a salary to treat
uch poor as Reader speaks of,

iving and the sober man who
