IN MILEAGE CASE.-MUCH TESTi
MONY WAS GW'EN AT THE (
HEARING.
REVIEW OF THE SITUATION)
All of the Arguments Must Be. Filed (
With the Interstate Commerce Com
t
mission By June 15.-Many Wit- e
nesses Were Called.
Columbia.-With the testimony sev- e
eral days ago the hearing on the e
mileage question in South Carolina
was concluded and counsel for all
parties interested were ordered tc U
have their arguments completed June t
15. The interstate commerce commis
sion will then consider the arguments
and the testimony.
The hearing on the South Carolina
mileage book situation was resumed
before Special Examiner Elder of the a
interstate commerce commission. The
major portion of the testimony was j
given by the railroads in the effort to!
prove the assertion that it took little b
more time for travelers to exchange 0
mileage for tickets than it did others 1E
to purchase tickets for cash, and the
railroad commission and the Travel
ers' Protective association endeavored O
to combat this . testimony through h
their witnesses. Many of the railroads
were present, and a goodly number of
traveling men were in attendance. f
The first witness called was W. A.
Russell, traveling passenger agent of
the Louisville & Nashville railway. h
He briefly explained the different
forms of tickets in use on his road and
ave An extended and technical dis- t]
scription of the difference between the 12
"cash" coupon and the ticket given in e
exchange for mileage. While he ad
mitted that it took a shorter time to
issue a card ticket than it did one ti
excehanged for mileage, yet he was of [
the opinion that the coupon for long
distances paid for in cash took just
as long to fill out. On direct exami
nation he admitted that his line would b
not accept coupons from a 2-cent
mileage book.
On direct examination Mr. Russell P
stated that -the risk of operation of e
a passenger train would be greater if
conductors had to pull mileage on
S. trains, giving as his reason, that he
would not have as much time to lookI
after his "orders."
--Addresses Lexington Teachers. ti
Lexington.-John H. Swearingen, F
state superintendent of education,
and Prof. W. H. Hand of the Univer
sity of South Carolina delivered edu- S
ationeI addresses before the meeting c
of .the Lexington County Teachers' as
sociation. Mr. Swearingen spoke of
the rapid Improvement that is being E
made along educational lines in Lex- E
ington, and urged the people to con
- tinue to go forward. No county in
the Jbate has made greater progress,
he said, than Lexington. and he pre- 'v
dicted still greater strides in the rural
pommunities.
Struck By Passenger Train. ti
Jaulngtonj-Girlie, 'the 12-year-old a
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emanuel
Kyser, was struck by a Southern 0
passenger train near Styx, this coun
ty, and was severely injured, having
received a severe fmecture of the
skull. As soon as the accident hap- C
pened Dr. E. P. Derrick of Lexington
was summoned to the Kyzer home,
where the girl's wounds were dressed.
The Southern railway later sent a U1
special out -from Columbia to get the E
ehild, who was carried .to a hospital

express to each one in person
our appreciation, we take this

Andrew Bramlett,
A Visit to Aiken.
In company with Mr. Burrell
C. Johnson it was my privilege
to attend the old soldier's re
union last week in Aiken, S. C,
While there we were treated
well by the citizens. Aiken is a
beautiful city and has a refined
and hospitable citizenship, Col.
D. S. Henderson delivered the
address of Welcome. He is one
of the best orators in the South,
and is the orator chosen to del
iver the annual address at Chat
tanooga in May.' Ex-Gov, John
C. Sheppard delivered the an
nual address to the old vets. It
was thrilling and instructive.
Goy. Blease was present and
made a short talk to the soldiers,
complimenting them for services
rendered. The speakers were
all well received. Be it said to
the credit of that large gather
ing that there was very little
signs of drinking. Bro. Johnson
and I went for the express pur
pose of getting some resolutions
passed by the Jasper Hawthorne
Camp discussed before the State
Reunion, and with the help of
others we succeeded in getting
them before the convention and
thoroughly discussed, and left
in a very satisfactory manner,
so far as we are concerned.
Bro. Johnson is a great worker.
He had several hundred copies
of our resolutions printed and
as he would meet the old vets
he would hand them a copy,
asking them to read it, and by
the time the resolutions came
up for discussion all the old sol
diers were prepared for discus
sion. Some of us intend never
to let up until South Carolina
shall pension every old soldier.
It is a crying shame that South
Carolina. the first state to secede,
the state on whose soil the first
gun of the war was fir-ed, the
leading state in the Union in
the production of corn per acre,
with the fairest women and the
bravest men, should be the hind
most state in showing her ap
preciation of the services ren
dered by the old soldiers. Lel
our motto be a pension for every
old soldier and the widow ol
every old soldier. D.W.H.

Pickens School
Defeats Liberty.
a
The Pickens High School base
ball team journeyed down to
a Liberty last Friday and played
s the school team of that town.
The score at the end of the ninth
inning was 15 to 14, Pickens
d holding down the big end.
9 A good sized crowd of Liberty
Y fans were present and a good
d many fans from Pickens also
attended. There was much
enthus'asm and the rooting was
o one of the features of the game.
s Each team acquited themselves
well, the rough condition of the
ground causing a larger score
than should have been. The
deportment of the teams was
excellent. Of the Pickens boys
special mention should be made
t of the playing of Seaborn, Hes
t ter, B. Porter and Finney. For
Liberty McClanahan, Hamby,
3 Spake and Thompson starred.
I A return game could be se
- cured, but unfortunately no
suitable ground can be secured
in Pickens to play on, the own
ers of the lots for some reason
or other refusing to rent them
to play ball on, thus depriving
the boys of much good and in
nocent fun. Ball games here
this summer would do much to
help pass away the long, hot
r afternoons and would be greatly
enjoyed. There is no better
amusement than purely ama
b teur baseball where each player

a his best.

Safer, More Reliable Remedy.
Hundreds of people in .this

use of dangzerous calomel when
their liver is acting slowly, and
- take Dodson's Liver Tone in
stead.
- Dodson's Liver Tone is al
ways safe and has none of the
- bad after-effects which so often
follow the use of calomel. It is
s a pleasant-tasting vegetable liq
e uid that starts the liver gently

Many preparation~s have

Liver Tone is the tried and test
