On all hands wo hoar tho ory of
'white supremacy, white supremacy."
Of course, as George Tillman says,
every respectable man is for white su
n'otnaoy In Its true sense?simply bo
ause tho whlto raeo Is really a supc
rior race naturally and by training.
But it may bo well to fcallzo ulso that
whlto supremacy has a counterpart,
white responsibility?one is just as roal
is the other. And tho momont wo bc
?to eant so much about white su
lacy and shut our eyes to white
msiblllty that moment we bogiu
'otrograde as a race and in so far
some loss supremo. If tho Anglo
axon raeo is supreme*it has grown so
iy being manly and truthful, humano,
merciful and just. When wo negloet
ithese and such kindred traits and rest
iur claim to supromacy simply on our
loud-mouthed asseveration of "white
?romay, white supromacy," wo are
very apt just then to bo laying tho
foundation for somo schomo of lawless
ness, inju8tico or fraud that will cer
tainly roact'on us and to that extent
lowor us as a race. If along with our
lotfst of whlto supremacy, wo remem
bered oftonor tho dutlo9 and responsi
bilities of a superior race, there would
bo h388 of tho lawlessness, violence,
?o, injustico and tyranny that

We may rest easy. Wo don't want big

absolutely no excuse today for vio

There is no reason why tho oloction to

Harris Lithia Wate
The most remarkable Water on the Market to-day
Shown by its Analysis and Testimonials of the Moj
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Read what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to say*
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had long been affected with kidney troubles. I bad tried all
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I bad tried tl|
Western waters and all others that I could hear of, and 1 have no lies
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even approximately a?
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo Lithia Wa
when I heard of this. I do not expect to use the BuflaloXvVaJcr again.
"When I went to Harris Lithia Springs, I had to be assi'slcrL^u^dj
my chair. After remaining two weeks I could get about as^g
anybody. It acted on me like a charm?quickly and effectively,
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every pel
who has tried it will agree with me in the belief that it is the most
markable water in the country. From a simple interest in suffering li
inanity, I would like very much to sec it given a trial.
0. A. BALDWIN, Columbia, S. C.

Mr. J. T. Harris:
We have been selling the Harris Lithia Water for some time, andV
find it a ready seller; those who have tried it are loud in its praise. TliOj
doctors here regard it superior to either the Buffalo or Londondcrr
Waters. Wc predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits beconu
more generally known.
Yours very truly, RAVSOR & SMITH,
Prosperity, s. c. Feb. 28, rS?4<
Mr. J. T. Harris:
I have been under the treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
a fiords me pleasure to say that I have received more benefit from the
use of Han is Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
