lature of South Carolina, to wit:
"I want to say a word with ref
orence to our tax system. Governor
Cooper said on one occasion that taxes
could not be reduced, and I suppose
that he was correct, when you take
into consideration the bunch of law
makers that he has to deal with. I
im sure he, individually, could not
.educe it-especially when the law
nakers made it a business'of spend
ng the weeks ends at home-some
imes adjourning on Friday and not
etting down to work until Monday
light or Tuesday of the next week,
;herefore, you see a week was cut at
)oth ends. And in this way and
ther ways, they idled around and
railed to work as they should and
had to work over time on account o
not keeping on their jobs regularly
they then had to remain over a loi
.)f time to do the work of the session
atnd voted themselves extra pay foi
this extra work. Not only did they
:lo this, but they voted to increast
their salaries from five to ten dollar:
: (lay, and we tax payers are going
to have a reckoning next- summer
luring the -campaign in this Statt
tnd in this county."
What about this?
Is it so?
The printed journals of both house:
f the legislature of South Carolin
.vill show numerous recent week-en<
.djournments fropn Friday to Monday
ir ..Tuesday. In the good old days
when there. were no railroads, legisla
tors went to Columbia got the jol
done and didn't conic home until the,
had finished. They come home nova
as often as the spirit moves them.
The Constitution of Sr. ch Carolina
which the people cnl' can legall;
change, declares in Article III Sectio:
J that "Members of the General As
sembly shall not receive any compen.
sation for more than forty days of
any one session,' The legislature
at the session of 1920 deliberately
disobeyed that command of the peo
pie in the State Constitution and no
only remained in session more that
forty days but glso voted the mem
hers extra pay. This was not onl:
uncmnstitutional, but it madq a
unconstitutional addition to the ta
burdens borne, by the people.
Let us consider se facts abou
four sessions of the legislature: thos
in 19l4, 1919, 1920 and 1921.
Fiist. as to the length of session
The s'ession of 1915 lasted from Jat
12 to Feb. 20. The session of 191f
from .Jan. 14. to March 1. The ses
ion1 (of 1920, from Jan. 13 to Marcl
6. The session of 1921, from Jan. 1
to March 5. Half a month nadded 01
in six vears.
Second, as to salaries of legislators
House of Rep. Senati
49,200 . 14,00(
Second, t'tal expenses of legisla
ure, not including printing:
1915 ... .... ..$61,711.20
In six years the cost of the, lc~is
ature to the taxpayers has been al
Who dlid this?
The members of the legislature
The le,gislators in 1920 sought tc
tot around the Constitution by call
ng the extra pay "expenses"-and
Mo hy with it altho it wvas, in our
plinion, an indefensible violation of
he State Constitution.
Su ppose Mr'. Kennemiore should
ire a man who contracted to tlnish~
job) at $5 a (lay for not moro than:
0 (lays. If that man loafed on the
ob and dlidn't finish it in the, speci
ledl time andl then tried to charge
Vir Kennemore $200 additional for
'expenses" would Mr. Kennemore
.tive it to him? Neither het nor any
>ther sensible man would, but that
.s just wvhat the legislature did.
As Ike Smith, the sage of Thicketty
ays, you can put something over all
the people some of the time, you can
put something over some of the peo
ple all of the time, but you can't put
something over all of the people all
af the time.

YOU HAVE A HANDICAP? READ
What do you think of a man who
> has made himself successful during
the 15 years he has been paralized,
flat on his back? .
That's the record of Lee Mabry, of
Albemarle, N. C.
Riding on a wagon load of wood,
1 Lee-then a lad of 15-was lurched
- to the ground. The wood piled up on
top of him, crushing part of his back
bone and breaking his arm, right leg
The spinal injury left him per
- manently paralized of motion and
t feeling from the heart down.
I Did Lee give up the fight and

f He became a storehouse of sunshine
1 -conceived the idea of publishing a
K paper, "Sunny South Sunshine." This
little paper, with a big message, emer
t ged from Lee's prison home to spread
e good cheer.
The paper reached a circulation of
6000, with over 2,000 copies sent free
- to "shut-ins" all over the country,
, Then came the war. Prohibitive
- prices of paper forced Lee to stop

enough to make the rest of us asham

SOUTH CAROLINA SCQREs
EQUALLY WITH TEXAS.
Four of the fifty leading agrictil
tural counties in the United States are
in South Carolina, according to a cen
sus report just issucd. The fifty coun
ties listed by the government lead in
the~ combined value of crops and live
stock products. In this order the four
Sou thI Carolina counties hold twventy
third, twventy-fourth, thirty-eigth and
forty-seventh places. If the value of
crops alone should be considered these
counties would take much higher
ranks, as many of tihe counties listedl
around the top produce much mnore
livestock products than the counties
in this state.
Only four Southern states have
counties in the select fifty. South
Carolina 'and 'Texas have fo'.r each,
North Carolina three and Mississippi
one. The four' counties in South Caro
lina are Anderson, Orangeburg,
Spartanburg and Marlboro In the or
der named, and the value of the crops
and livestock prodlucts of each is as
follows: Anderson $28,528,158;
Orangeburg, $23,427,879; Spartanburg
$20,887,542. Marlboro, $19,419,921.
