What tools we mortals be! So wrote
the master mind of all tho earth, three
hundred vcars ago But nobody should
be surprised that fools turn up on
ovory hand. When the President was
assaulted many careless and foolish
speeches were made. A republican
Senator, of Marylaml, was charged
with expressing his **'indiIToroncc."
Thompson, a Southern Journalist, sug
gested bis expulsion from tho Senate
and the suggestion is met with endorse
ment from Main:- to Texas. It is idiotic
in the extreme. Free speech !s about
all of val le left to the English speak
ing race und the bravest of tho race,
notably Lord Urskino, won and be
queathed it to us. Assasination com
menced with Cam: oame on down
with Joab, and in all countries and ages
has been one of tho ordinary forms of
orime. "Uneasy lies the bond that
wears a crown", is familllar to many
a school lad, "Sutler no brother near
the throno" is an eastern aphorism,
Hud kings, and rulers have Imuiemorl
ally been tho victims of tbe assassin's
blade. It is simply one of the penal
ties of civilized Government. But
there bus been nothing like the panic,
crazy domorllizntlon as resulting upon
the wicked assault upon the President.
Tho clamor is to arrest und hang tome
body, nobody knows or cares who the
Victim may be. A long, loose toDgucd
woman, Emma Goldman, is likely to
bo the first victim, as was the Innocent

Hyde Park, in the centre of London,

Death of President McKinley.
President Wm. McKinley died at tho
Milbum House, Buffalo, at 2:15 o'clock,
on the morning of the 14th instant.
'1 he shock of the announcement was
magnified by reason that tho physicians
in charge bad sanctioned optimistic
reports of his condition and the world
was hopeful of his speedy recovery.
In tho very fruition of his fame
and successful career, he was cut
down. It is truo the South was not In
sympathy with tho President's politi
cal policies, but his honest purpose, his
high character, and purity of life, were
the theme of all men.
The assassin's knife has been whetted
in all th*j agos for the ruler, inspired
by ''vaulting ambition" and more des
picablo motives, but there has boon
nothing so contemptible as tho appa
rent motive directing the heart and
hand of the miserable wretch who
caused tho President's death. Ho was
fortunate in his lifo antf dying in tho
height of his fame, it may be, he was
fortunate In his death. Sweeter than
the fragranoo of tho Mowers that em
bower his casket are the blessings
that good men shower on his memory.
To the lips of fair men, even his po
litical enemies, must come the words:
"Besides, this Duncan?
Hath borne his faculties so mock, hath
So clear in his groat ollice, that his
Will plead like angels, trumpet-ton
The deep damnation of his taking off."
Theodore Roosevelt, of New York,
Is President. Ho is comparatively
young, a man of ability, of large expe
rience in affairs of Stale, and there has
never been u breath of suspicion as to
his character and high purposes. Ho
Is a republican and will probably look
to carry out; the foreign policies of his
lato chief. He must moot the compli
cated Phillpbine situation, the Cuban
prQblem, trusts, the social questions
growing out of the relation of labor
and capital. His position is not to be
envied, as in another place we have
said that, in a political sense, tho lato
President may have been fortunate in
his death. While the "strenous" trend
of President Roosevelt has been tho
occasion of some merriment and he
has been widely caricatured by tho
Democratic press, there Is no reason to
conclude otherwise than that ho will
bo just In his administration and fair
to the South.
Tho Piedmont correspondent to tho
Greonvillo Mountainoer says: "Tho
first steamer ever known to lloaton the
wators of the Suluda River was launch
cd on tho 4th day of Septenibor, 1001,
by John T. Hill, who lives In tho
Brushy Creek settlement. It is In tho
shape of a scow, somo thirty feet In
length, with a stern wheel some
thing llko an over shot water wheol,
and is run by an upright engine. Mr.
Hill and his associates uro to uso the
Steam-boat we believe, to haul cord
wood from up the river to Piedmont.
They can take on from Iwelvo to tiflcon
cords of stovo wood very readily and
land it at convenient places in town.
By this means a groat saving of tlmo
in getting wood to market in rough
weather can bo made. Tho boat Is not
much of a beauty, but she Is useful."

W. H. Dial,
Mr. W. T. Blakely'* Vineyard and
Orchard at Orn.
We sometime bear people remark
about catalogued nursery fruits that
tho description Is highly cxagerated
and the pictures of the trees and fruit
aro vaunting pageantries. That such
pictures refer to tho ideal rather than
to the real, or if granting thai they
are not feigned that they ure assigned
to fruit grown along the golden gate
region, and of course are climatically
related to our soil and climate. Some
times it is considered prudent for the
more conservative to oven be pardona
ble in speaking disparagingly of nur
sery representations. This has boon
the fact, with a brief exception of a
very few late years, that the "fruit
agent" has become a burden, almost a
reprouoh. But this belief is not tena
ble by all. Certainly bv no one who
has seen the fruit of Mr. VV. T. Blake
It was the happy fortune of the wri

After entering the orchard 1 felt em
barrassed for two reasons : ono that it

found that my appetite had very badly

for the occasion, but Mr. Blakely 8 ef

Keifer pear tro?? literally covered with
fruit, the limbs touching tho ground
full of clusters of pears. We counted
fourteen in one bunch. The whole
tree, every pear tree might be describ
ed, hanging with ripe fruit.
After eating we noticed the order of
the trees: First on tho left are the
cherry trees, then onglish walnuts and
pecans, and the remaining on tho left
is devoted to peach trees; at the rear
i on tho right pear trees and around the
outer part a belt of pear trees, mostly
