A "Pretty Little Republican."
Shortly after tbe civil war a bright
young lawyer frosh from Yale Uni
versity left Massachusetts and settled
in Texa?. He was only 22 and band
eome?a real beauty who wore elegant
olothos and accurately parted hair.
Moreover, ho was full of oratorical ac
complishments and belonged to the
political party of Sumner. Of course
ho soon found his way Into politico and
ran for Congress. That was what
brought him to the South.
One warm lovoly day a mass raeo'ing
was hold in the Court House and about
1,000 colored peoplo attended. Our
young friend, slim and well groomed,
his faint moustaches daintily curled
and bla willowy form uttlred in a Bos
ton tailor-made suit, arose to speak.
And ho did speak, with eloquence that
thrilled the vast dark audience. He
told of Garrison, Phillips, John Brown
and the rest and in roaring sentences
said that Lincoln was an oven greater
man than Washington?for which
there was some excuse immediately af
ter the war, the speakor being a Mas
As the young man's tempest of olo
cution rolled on, suddenly a dreadful
noise x'ose above it. A colored woman
weighing some 300 pounds caused it.
She was a shiny black perton and glo
riously fut. She had burst into a fit of
uncontrollable gleo and shouted and
laughed just as though she might have
?'got religion" on the spot.
Tho speakor paused and tho large
lady paused with him, smiling a three
mile smile at him. Tbo orator, think
ing the oxcltument over, commenced
to speak again when Instantly the groat
negress leaped to the iloor and lift
ed up her voice, exclaiming: "Oh,
Lawdy! Oh, Lawdy!! What a pretty
littlo republikin! Ise gwino to bug
him! Lawdy! jist lot me hug him onct!
What a protty little republikin! '
Such evidence of affection was too
much for the young strangor, he sat
down precipitately and the meeting
If the young Senator from South
Carolina, he of tho curly locks, should
venture into the Republican caucus
perhaps the. scene may bo repeated and
the venerablo Massaehussetts stateman
whom wicked newspapers sometimes
call "Granny" Hoar may bo beard to
shout: "Oh, Lawdy! What a protty
littlo republikin I"
History Four Years Back.
Men of the same name do not always
think in the same grooves. Col. James
H. Tillman, for example, was not look
ed upon until lately as a "Reformer"
in the Ben Tillman sense. He was
supposed to be a follower of his father,
tho late Col. George D. Tillman, who
was generally opposed to Sem'.tor Till
man politically- In 1807 Col. James
H. Tillman was an onthuslasticsuppor
ter of Mr, McLaurin against Messrs
Irby and Evans. When the campaign
meeting was held In Edgefield Mr. Mc
Laurin was Col. Tlilman's guest and
Ool. Tillman seemed to bo his especial
champion. Col. Tillman was thought
to have provided McLaurin with some of
the clevorest portions of bis campaign
speeches. McLaurin was then a bosom
friend of Governor Ellerbe. When the
latter appointed James H. Tillman
Lieutenant Colonel of volunteers, it
was suggested that McLaurin's in
fluence brought it about, though this
was only u conjecture.
So far as wo recall, Col. Tillman has
never aligned himself with Senator
Tillman unless by the withdrawal of
the Roosevelt Invitation. Evdn then
Col. Tillman placed the responsibility
on contributors to the sword fund and
did not avow tho act as his own. On
the whole, Senator Tillman shou'd not
be held answerable for his nephew
James. Nor James Tillman for his
unole Ben. Why mix your TlllmansV
Most Tillmans arc able to stand on
their own legs anyhow.
A Logical Candidate.
Merely to add to the gaiety of the
situation, we suggest that Ex-Oover
ernor J. G. Evans Is in a sonse the pe
culiarly logical candidate to succeed
Senator McLaurin. Mr. McLaurin is
to be defeated for alleged republican
tendencies and performances. In 1807
the late Senator Irby and Mr. Evans
accused McLaurin repeatedly of just
suoh. To ono who heard the cam
paign spoeches of 1807, most of the
charges glibly preforred against Mc
Laurin now are stale. Incidonts in
McLaurin's career since 1897 havo only
emphasized tho truth-of what Messrs.
Irby and Evans then declared from
. every stump In tho State?thoy have
proved nothing now.
Evans survives. Those who opposed
him most blttorly in 1807 are now us
ing his campaign thunder of 1897
against MoLaurin. Of course he is
the "logical" candidate.
Meanwhile, Thk AnvERTiSER doos
not commit itself to a logioal candi
date; indoed thore may be abundant
reasons why tho stat i should vote as
lllogioally as usual. All of which re
mains to be seon.

In April, 1872, they were eager to cap

that the constabulary were coming

Every Miller Had the Opportunity.
Nearly all mills made pure flour be
fore the anti-Adulteration League was
organized. The league was organizod
when tho adulteration of flour first
began, and was designed tostop it in its
inciplency. Every flour-miller in the
United States was invited to join tho
League,but the fact that be had to make
oath that he never had und never wou'd
adulterate bis flour, and in addition
bad to put up a forfeit of $1,000 to
strongthou his oath, caused a largo
number to hesitate, and finally to de
cline. Bransford Mills, manufacturer
of the "Clifton," was among the first
to join, because It never had and never
oxpectedto adulterate Its flour. 1.9 not

P. A. WERMAN, OF BALTIMORE, BAYSt
JlALTiMonn, Mil.. March 30, 1001.
Gentlemen : ? nein;; entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now give you
n full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ngo my right car began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing In this car entirely.
I underwent a treatment lor catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent car specialist of this city, who told m* the*
only an operation could help me, und ?ven that only temporarily, that the head noises would
then cease, but the hearing In the affected car would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement accidentally In a New York paper, and ordered your treat
ment. After I had tised it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day. after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear ha9 been entirely restored. I thank you

Deafness Cannot Bo Cured
By local application as thoy cannot
reached the diseased portion of the
ear. There is only one way to euro
deafnesn, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is cansod by an
i. il.mied condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachlan Tube. When
this tube Is inllamed you have a rumb
ling sound or Imperfect bearing, and
when It is entirely closed, Deafness Is
tho result, and unless the Inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restored
to Its normal condition, hearing will
ha destroyed forever; nine ca?os out of
ton arc caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed condidlton of
the mucous surfaces.
Wo will glvo Ono Hundred Dollars
