The Canal To Be Built.
Tho people of tho isthmus of Darien
or Panama havo seceded from Colom
bia and set up a republic. They will at
once sell the rights to the United
States to build the Panama Canal aud
it will bo built. This seems certain. In
a few short years the Atlantic aud
Paoiflo oceans will be connected and
..the commerce of the world will be re
volutionized, under the direction and
control of the United Stales.
It is widoly b3llovod that after the
Colombian government refused to
ratify what Is known as the Hay-Her
rau canal treaty the Uuitod States gov
ernment conspired with the paoplo of
Panama for the secession which has
lately followed. No ono will say that
the Panama crowd wouid havodreamod

protection and recognition by the gov
ernment at Washington. This protec

That the Washington govornment
whloh coorced the Confederate states
when they exorcised their right to se
cede has connived at secession by a
part of another government is a settled
fact. This is merely another illustra
tion of tho old, old truth that In tho re
lations between governments, good
morals, good faith, consistency and
sentiment aro not as a rule regarded.
It would have been more to tho beno -
lit of the South if tho Nictrauga route,
advocated by Sen\tor Morgan for thirty
or forty years, hid been selected. It

It is possible that tho Democratic
minority in congress will oadeavj? to

tho present stage of civilization, is the
supremo test of virtue. The Republi

Mnking Fine Furniture.
A Charleston man who was recently
preparing to furnish a new residence
consulted ono of the leading furniture
dealers of that city. After inspecting
with him catalogues of several celebrat
ed factories of Grand Rapids and other
places the dealer said: "Lot me show
you the equal of the best in these cata
logues mado here in South Carolina."
Ho then exhibited a suit from tho Lau
rens Furniture Company and the gen
tleman, who told tho writer of the in
cident, found that what the dealer said
was strictly true.
Our own people aro scarcely aware
of tho high class of goods made by
their home factory. President Aiken
and Superintendent Bruening, both
first rato men in their positions, are
rapidly bringing this factory to the
front in tho furniture trade and it is ap
parently a matter of only a few months
before it will have a reputation second
to none in the country. Alroady its
output is in demand wherever It is
known and it is becoming better known
each day. '
Laurens is well known as a cen
ter for fine toxtile manufacturing in
the South. The prom he is that some
day it will have a similar repute in the
McMastcr and Moonshine.
The editorial statement below is
taken from Mr. R. R. HemphilPs Ab
"An item has appeared In various
newspapers to the effect that a .man in
Vormont 1ms the largest applo orchard
In the world. It contains 4500 trees
aud this yoar's crop has alroady been
sold for $1500.
"This apple orchard is not in it, for
Fitz MoMas'er, business manager of
The Stato, has an apple orchard on his
place in the mountains known as Zir
con a containing 47000 trees. This is no
newspaper yarn for the information
oamo from the owner himself. The
trees are growing finely but are not
old enough yet to bear fruit."
The only amazing feature of this
story is that McMaster told on him
self. Ho has been stealing away to
"Zircon a" at intervals of a few weeks
for seVoral yca>s, saying that "he
needed rest" and that "his health was
breaking down" but those who knew
of his desperate animosity to the dis
pensary law suspected that he was
fighting it from the North Carolina
side. It is strange that none of his ap
plejack wagons has ever been sen.*, by
way of Laurens. It was not like tho
generous nature of the man to negleot
his friends. Wonder how many apple
jack wagons he is running anyhow?

deal, and we could not afford to make this assertion unless wo know that we
could prove, it to bo true. But it does not tako an expert to test the softness of
a Mineral Water. When carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbed in the wat9r, and when the bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is left tlat and hard, while if it is a soft water, like
White Stone Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
