SOUTH WELL DONE.
The Life of John C. Calhoun by Gus?
tnvus M. Pinckney? Of Interest
Even to tho averago South Carolin
ian, tho suggestion of reading a life of
Johu C. Calhoun would seem a heavy
undertaking. One thinks of Calhoun
with awe, as of an intellectual wizard
who wrote and .-poke, in weighty syl
logisms. The average mind recoila at
tho notion oi "syllogism." In these
days the averago reader craves "sto
rk 8." Tho habit of reading books of
travel, essays, history aud biography
is rare unions young people who havo
good school advantages as well as
among thoso whoso learn'ng Is limited
to tho "three r's."
Tho Life of John C. Calhoun, which
Me. Gustavus M. Pinckney of Charles
ton has written and which has just
come from tho pross of tho Walker,
Evans & Cogswell Co., Charleston, Is
not only a valuable work but It ought
to bo popular. It Is not a largo vol
umo?250 pages In bold, clear typo.
One can read it carefully in three or
Mr. Pinckney writes from the point
of view of an enthusiastic admirer and
disciple of Mr. Calhoun. No detailed
history of the statesman's life is at
tempted. Tho endeavor has been to
cull from tho massos of American his
torical literature in which Mr. Calhoun
IIg 11 res and from his own writings so
much as will lllustrato his motives, his
methods of reasoning and the results.
Thoso results speak for themselves in
a few oonciso conclusions cn political
questions which have nob been paral
leled for strength, lucidity and elemen
tal permanence by any other Ameri
can statesman. Mr. Pinckney has made
clear that Mr. Calhoun discerned,
analyzed and classified practically all
tho important questions of a political
naturo likoly to bo discussed in con
nection with the American Constitu
tion. Mr. Calhoun'a vision was scarcely
liml'ed by time or circumstances and Mr
l'inckney's selections from his utter
ances show them not less applicable to
the politics of today than to the politics
of tho days of Clay and Webs'or. In
truth, herein lies tho value of the book.
It is as though Mr. Calhoun were not
dead but rather had gone on a long jour
ney during which his teachings had
been p.utially forgotten. Mr. l'ineknoy
has brought him back to South Carolin
ian?, directed their attention to a fow
of hifjcloar, penetrating, truth revoal
ing id error dispelling doctrines in
such Jianner that the reader in this
twentieth century fee's himself
brought near to the great prophet ol
tho constitution, Is under his voice
and hold by the charm of his serene,
puic ai d exalted personalty.
Thero is not a dull page in the
book. Tho (j notations arc not too
long. The style Is compact, forceful
and at times eloquent. The book is es
pecially refreshing beeauso it Is bold.
It contains neither the apology nor
concealinont with which some South
ern writers about Calhoun have en
deavored to sneak before Northern au
White the work Is essentially politi
cal, we wish lo impress that it will ap
peal to any and to all Intelligent read
ers . Out of tho pages always come9 the
personality of Mr. Calhoun and one
beholds tho hero as weil as tho states
man?a mind and character fo perfect
in conduct and utterance as to make
the beau ideal of intellectual knight
hood and chain the attention not less
than tho doughty figures of Walter
"We hear much In these days of tho
n:ce*slty for Southern History and
.A-werlc'an history written by Southern
?men. The life of Calhoun is at the
ibottom of whatever Southern history
Js worth preserving. No man unfa
miliar with Calhoun and his <.work
knows why Southern men fought for
the Confederacy. There Is no nearer
way to an understanding of the South's
attitude in the union today than
through Mr. Calhoun's doctrines. In
brief form, full of 'nterest, Mr. Pinck
ney has given all these. If our people
roally wish history written by South
erners and telling tho story straight
and fair, they must be willing to en
jcourago it by nt least buying the
jbo^fes. The placing of a book, espec
ially m, book not "a trifle light as air"
,1s always a doubtful venture from a
(financial point of view. The publica
tion of this Life of Calhoun will ha an
indication whethor or not the insistent
clamor of tho last few years for South
ern histories has had an earnoat desire
While not written for use as a text
book, this Ufa 0/ Calhoun is admirably
adap'ed for parallel reading in the
schools and colleges of this South.

Dear Sir: Wo suspect you'd liko the
tale, how a woman beat two hardware
doalera in Girard, Pa.
Wo tried our best to get those men
to sell Dcvoe lead-and-zinc in that
bright town; and failed. Reluctantly
took Mrs. E. U. Howmao, druggist.
They said they couldn't soli paint for
moro than $1.2"> a gallon. Mrs. Dow
man can. She has soM about all the
paint, that has h:cn sold there since.
She knew Dovoe: had sold our artists'
materials. Had some sense and force,
besides; she cas:ly learned that cheap
is dear in paint; and told the people.
Mr. Burt Young bought a gal'on Dc
voe for rooms that had taken a gallon;
bad half left.
Mr. E. H. Hilor, jeweler, painted
Devoe, and says it goes further?no
Mr. John I lamia, grocer, thought it
expcii8ivo beforo he bought it: brought
back nearly half of his paiut, ami said
it was the cheapest job ho ever had.
Mrs. Bowman reports unlvorsal sat
isfaction. So much for a cheap-paint
town with a bright woman in it.

White Stone Lithia Water!
Is the lightest water on the market. Wo reali/.O that this is claiming a great
deal, and we could not nll'ord to make this assertion unless wo knew that we
could prove It to be true. But it does not take an expert to test the softness of
a Mineral Water. When carhonating a mineral water, if it is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbed in tho water, and when tho bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is loft Hat and hard, while if it is a soft water, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
