toKlutey and tho other half do/on
tokets now on and fast coming on tho

fom Watson was groatly potted in
State some four years ago?but it

'illman stood it out in Chicago and

'Illman doolarod his intention to pull

well go to the bow wows. To toll tho
Inmost straight truth about It: The
Advertiser and Its roadors aro
mighty Indepondont these days and
not so full of patriotism; wo have suf
fered; have stood a doal; It is clear that
we aro to wait for prosperity; wo arc a
small oloment in the mighty aggrega
tion making up tho glorious union; and
I are loyal to tho Idoa of not assuming
itoo much responsibility to hold back
the country from entering into the
jaws of destruction. Make up your
minds, gontlo roadors, to voto for tho
Bryan collection and wait rosults.
Of course Wo will all bo happy still?
for wo havo a glorious collection to
choose from in the grand array
?presenting themselves for our sut
fragoB?vote as wo ploase wo can't
make a mistake ? tho State is
'.bound to be prosporous-?" we'll bo gay

A Stato is hard to defino?and what
is called State pride is a foolish sug
gestion. A Stato if mado up of its popu
lation is not a thing of longer than a
moment?as tho inhabitants aro not for
a moment Identical. The present occu
pants of tho Stato arc cortainly not to
be held responsible for tho sins and
.Short comings of a contary back?
although it is noi, infroquont to brag
or 'cluster about ancestral achieve
ments. Thoso barbarians that Caezar
found in Britain little ubovo brutish
beasts and unablo to protect them
selves against Invasion, woro our an
cestors. Wo aro led to these reflec
tions by tho tone of comment of our
press upon tho alleged low tone of the
campaign now progressing in our State.
No man can be hold responsible for
their short coming. Fifty yoars from
this and you will not be part of It. So
let us all tako a philosopical viow and
resolve to bo happy. How much of tho
glory of Hayno, Calhoun, McDufllo and
the rest of tho good and grcnt esch
one of us can claim, amounts to little.

It wo* a record breaking mooting at
that groat stronghold of reform,
Orangeburg. Indeed it was. Volun
teers to manage the mooting laid down
laws to govern the debate, to tho ef
fect that np personalitlos should bo
used by tho speakers. This capsized
the whole thine?thoro was nothing
left?you have heard of Hamlet with
out tho Prince. All the same the
managers got there?they wore mostly
Whitman's "pap-suckers" and there
was much fun. As each speaker
closod, theso gentlemen took tho mat
ter of "personalities" in hand and pro
pounded sundry questions involving
only tho character, record and hon
esty of tho aspirants. Every mothers
son except their favorites wore put on
tho dofonsivo by a line of thumb screw
ing interrogatories. Thoy did and
they didn't?they wanted all clean?
thoy loaded down tho mooting with
filth. Indood, this is an ago of educa
tion, but tho ages to come will stand
amazod when thoy read backwards
upon the Orangoburg record of last
Tuesday. May wo not tako unto our
paralizod souls the flattoring unctioh

Jones having harassed Whitman
further, the candidato told him his
brains woro in his heels. When tho
chairman mildly romonstratcd with
Jones tho lattor retorted: "God?d d-n

over tho State, but ho can't do any

paying his expensos. The candidate
replied ho was paying thorn himself

MEN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential than the
cigar and other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks father, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
rclize this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reilect a minute'.
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, are you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of thismeri nd right?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Orgap ?
Give your wives and daughters their merited rights in the home,
which is "Woman's Kingdom," then she will cease to clamor for politi
cal suffrage. Don't plead inability when such liberal terms and prices
