The South Carolina editors had three
quarts the best of North Carolina at
the Montreat meet.
Wonder what the editors of North
Carolina said to the editors of South
Carolina at Montreat last week? .
While Uncle Sam has the old man in
custody it might be a good scheme to
take that salute away from Vic. Huerta
A jug of whiskey, a pistol, a report
of the pistol, one man dead, another in
jail, two families in great trouble. i
What caused the trouble?
It is really gratifying to note from
the want ads in the daily )al)ers that
most of the advertisers now want n
"jobs" instead of "positions." s
A temperance orator says whiskey t
has killed more men than bullets have. r1
Maybe so; but we know a lot of-men 8
who had rather be full of whiskey than c
full of bullets!
A new and fast automobile has been
shipped to a Russian general. That I
seems to be what the whole Russian
army needs just now -something fast
to get away on.
The South Carolina Press association
and Col. William Banks, editor of the
Columbia Record, are both to be con
gratulated upon the selection of Col.
Banks as president.
Each of the numerous presidenits Mex --
ico has had in the past few years having
lootedl the treasury wh'len it came his
turn, it would seem there would be
nothing left to light for.

Wogo Tankositch is the name of the

S3ome newspapers assert that it is our
moral duty to let the Mexicans settle
their own affairs. So it was in Cuba.
There was only one excuse lacking to
make the United States take hold in
Cuba. That was furnished by the blow
ing up of the Maine. What will be the
excuse in the case of Mexico?
Out-of-the-ordinary ~and unexpected
things are happening all the time. The
Panama-Pacific exposition is $61,000
ahead of the game, and it is thought it
will pull thru without asking Uncle Sam
to chip in and pull it out of a hole. And
this, too, in spite of the fact that Col.

with his roll!

Dame Rumor has it that the
wedding bells will ring ere long
in this immediate vicinity. It I
is intended that the wedding
will be a great surprise to every
one except the bride, the groom i
and the preacher. It will be a
very quiet one, without any
noise of any description ex- I
cept possibly the sweet strains 1
of the Excelsior Fiddling
Band, of which the groom
has been a member of long
standing. The wedding is to i
take place at high noon next|]
Saturday at the home of the h
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. I I
Fletcher Henstep on the Gander
Jreek road. After the preacher Itc
ias been settled with, the groom x
vill immeditely depart on a
vedding trip to Tickville, and
vill be gone all day. The bride 1

The bride will be handsomely I

With killing going on wholesale in
tost .of Europe, murder, rapine and
tarvation existing in Mexico, soldiers

t is cracked up to be.

Some cities now have the jitnev bus
"for colored only." That's a good idea.
The colored brother and sister can al

reason we should not lead them astray.
No matter what it is-good or evil-the
white men and women are always
looked to as guides for the blacks If
the white man is always law-abiding he
will have a great influence with those
