Do you wish the world ware better?
Let me tell you what to do,
Set a watch upon your actions, keep
them always straight and true;
lead your mind of selfish motives, let
your thoughts be clean and high;
You can make a little Eden of the
.sphere you occupy.
Do you wish the world were wiser?
Well, suppose you make a start
By accumulating wisdom in the
scrapbook of your heart.
Do not waste one page on folly; livo
to learn and learn to live,
If you want to give men knowledge,'
you must get it cre you give.
1)o you wi.sh the world w ?re happy?
Then renem ber day by day
Just i.' ;catter seeds of kindness as
you pass along the way;
for the pleasure of the many may
ofttines be traced to one,
As the hand that plants the acorn
shelters armies from the sun.
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
CORIPORAL PUNISHMENT ON
THE CHAIN GANGS.
According to the State Board of
Public Welfare, one county in our
state forbids corporal punishment of
the prisoners on its chain gang. In
three other counties there were gangs
0)n which corporal punishment had
not been admtiniist nred within a year
prior to the time of last inspection.
These three were Abbeville (both
gangs), Dillon and Greenwood (gang
number two). In all other counties
corporal punishment was administer
ed in degrees varying from brutality
to a seemingly just punishment.
These conditions exist in spite of
Section 19 of Article 1 of the gon
stitution of the state which says,
"Corporal punishment shall not be
inflicted." The Attorney General
has given an opinion that this for
bids whipping on the gangs of the
state as well as in other penal insti
tutions. It is claimed that there is
no other way to successfully manage
convicts, but this claim Is not borne
out by the facts. The system is
wrong that places it in the p~ower
of a foremani to inflict a punishment
long ago forbidden by our lawvs and
the rules of our courts.
"Kangaroo Court'' is a term appli
ed .to a formn of haz.ing indulged in
by the members of convict gangs.
Whtenever ai niew prisoner' arr'ivs he
is give'n th option of taking a whip
p)ing 0o' paying ai tine. VTe usua)
price of exempiltion for one lash is one
cent-"'thir'ty cenits or thirty lashes'
or "forty lashes or forty cents" be
mng -th.e usual optionl. The only
other way of buying exemptiont from
the whipping is with the juicy prto
duct of the tobacco leaf. It is need
less to say that this form of puniish
mnent is somtimtaes sever'e.
Ott good( gangs this practice is ntta
allowed but ont others it is enicour
a ged by the foremen on the groundi
that it str ngthens the discipline of
the prisoner is. There is no jutiti
atb excuse for its existonce and it
should be abolished fromi every chain
gang in South Carolina.
But few instances tire ont record
of whipping in the jails of the state.

More than 90,000 men and women
saw Jack Dempsey, of Amnerica,
knock out Georges Carpentier, of
France, in the fourth round of the
fight for the heavy weight champion
ship of the world in New Jersey last
Saturday. The gate receipts for the
fight were said to be one million six
hundred thousand dollars. Of this
amount Rickard, the promoter, re
ceived over $500,000. Dempsey re
ceived $:00,000 and Carpentier re
ceived $200,000. Uncle Sam receiv
ed about a half million in taxes.
Carpentier was called the French
Idol and "Man of Mystery." It was
claimed by some that he would
hypnotyze Dempsey with his eyes.
Dempsey, however, put no faith in
the mystery stuff, but depended upon
his realistic pile-driving jabs to do
his hypnotizing and paralyzing. They
