New Members of the Whis
Clemson College Scholarships Under
Discussion?The Shad Bill Has
The General Assembly la still in ses
sion end will accomplish something
this week it is hoped.
Last week it accomplished the elec
tions of H. H. Evans as ohairman of
the State dispensary directors and of
J. B Towill, of Batesburg, and L. W.
Boykln, of Kershaw, as members of
the board. They succeed Wiley Jones
and L. J. Williams.
Mr. Tatum, of Orangeburg, was
e'ected State dispensary commissioner
in place of H. U. Crum who did not
scok re-election. There was a lot of
oanvasslng for these cilices. They are
more sought for than any oftioes "in
the gift of the people."
Former State Senator McDermott,
of 1 lorry, ran against B, H. Evans but
was beaten badly. McDermott is said
to bt> a reliable and successful man of
spot'ess oharaoter, but B. B. Evans is
now tbe hardest man to beat in the
Sta'.e for any office with possibly one
exception. Be began his political
cue \- as mayor of Liurens. The
whole Liurens delegation, senator and
house members, voted for him.
Representative Herbert has offered
a bill to create 124 scholarships at
Olennon of $100 each to be given to
boys who will take tbe farming course
in college, the money to oome out of
Clemen's funds. It was developed in
debate that only seven per cent of the
Clemson students take the farming
course at the farmers' college. Sen
ator Tillman had Clemson established
to fill "the demand for a purely agri
cultural college." The Anti-Tillman
ites opposed it. The position of the
Antls is fully vindicated. Bowever,
Clemson is a valuable and splendid
college even if the farming course is
not popular, and it should be well sup
ported. Many farmer's sons are being
educated there in other than farming
Industries. The Borbert bill is a good
bill, for something should be done to
induce the boys to study farming.
A lot of debating has taken place
over the shad bill. The bill forbids
the exporting of shad. The George
town and Florence legislators have
been babbling about shad for 20 years.
No up-country man has ever been able
to understand what they were driving
at. Tbe bill was paesed.
The Impression Is that two new Ju
dicial circuits will be formed and two
new Judges elect id in c msequence.
At last accounts the Laurens senator
and n embers were bthaving them
selves very well.
The member from another county
who was lined in the police court for
disorderly corduct has not been fined
any more. The dispensary elections
are till over.

LABOE IS SCARCE
IN WESTERN STATES.
Many Nobt asKn FarniPr.H Are Discour
aged by the Prevailing fondi*
Lincoln, Neb , Jan. 10.?An unus
ually largo numb: r of Nobraska farm
ers are holding sales of their house
bold goods and farm implements this
winter, and the attention of business
men and bankers has beeu attracted to
the matter, says a dispatch to the Now
York Sun, A fow of these sales are
preparatory to removal toother States,
but most of them are duo to the faot
tbat the labor problem is becoming so
serious on the farms that tome of the
farmers are getting discouraged.
It is estimated by the State Seore
Ui \ of Agriculture that many thou
sands dollars' worth of grain was lost
last summer ibecause there were not
enough men to harvest it. The States
of Missouri, Kansas and Nobraska have
taken the matter in hand, and an asso
ciation of Stato labor bureaus was
formed to systematize tho furnish
ings of tnrvost bands next year.
Many farmers are pes3imistlo about
tho matter. They say that It is gct'.ing
so now that there is littlo encourage
ment to continue working a farm of
H<red help in tho field means hired
help iu the hous^. The wives have go'
the taste of luxury from reoent years
of prosperity and they obj 'ct to work
ing hard in the kitchen. Tho farmers'
daughters have taken to teaching
school or have gone to tho cities to bo
typewriters or clerks.
Hired girls are scarce enough in the
city, but in the country the demand is
even greater. Much of th? city supply
comes from farms, and tho 94 or $5 a
weok offered In tho cltle3, with all the
attractions the town itself presents,
makes it difficult to got kitchen help in
Then, too, the farmhands' union is
causing some trouble. Already it has
forced prices $5 a month, and the eight
hour day, although not yet actually on
the farm, is not far distant.
Farmers have tried to fight the union
by cooperation among themselves, do
ing one another's work, but it li the
dally grind of chor.-s that makes the
farmer weary. And now that ho has
money he dcesn't like to work any
more than less favored mortals. A good
many farmers have therefore deter
mined to give more attention to stock
and to arrango their work so that they
can got along with a minimum of holp.

RULES THAT GOVERN
BESTOW* EOF CROSSES
Origin and Hlsto-y or a Beautiful Cus
tom?All Vetoraus Entitled to
iho lion >r.
The Confederate cross of honor
awarded by the Daughters of tho Con
federacy, origin ?tod with Mrs. Mary
Cobb Erwin of Athens, Ga.,aDd the de
sign ?ffered by Mrs. S. E. Gabbett, of
Atlanta, Ga.,was adopted at K'chmond,
V?., in November, 1891), at the annual
meeting of tho U. 0. D., says Col. J. A.
Hoyt, in tho Greenville Mountaineer.
The custodian of the crosses is Mra.
Gabbett, who adheres strictly to the
regulations prescribed for their pur
chase and presentation. Only four
years havo elapsed since the first
crosses were given to Confederate vete
rans, and there has arisen in this brief
period a great do il of misconception
and mlsundorstanding as to the object
of making the presentation and upon
whom It shsll he bestowed. A sum
mary of tho points contained in the
rules and regulations will enlighten
many persons who aro Interested In
this impressive and beautiful custom,
which was observed In this city on tbe
19th lost., while honoring the birthday
of Robert E. Lee.
1. OsrtlficateBof eligibility are filled
out by tho applicants, who must be
veterans, endorsed by two or more of
ficers of the camp to which they be

the custodian in Atlanta by the presi
dents of U. D. C. Chapters when re
mitting money for the crosses, and are
to be returned to tho chapter for pre
3. Each chapter keops a rocord of the
name and command of every soldier
who receives the cros?, so that thero
may be no possibility of bestowing a
second orossupon the same person.
4. In case any veteran has tho mls
fortuno to lose his cross he cannot re
ceive another, at.d veterans are re
quested to have their names engraved
upon the tm bar, but In case the owner
loses either tho tin bar or the cross
neither part can bj restored.
5. A veteran d>ing without heirs
may have tho cross buried with him,
but otherwise it must be sont to the
Buttle Abbey or a Confederate museum,
and a Veteran my bequeath his cross
to eny desoondant that he may soleor,
0. The cross cannot bo worn except
by the veteran [upon whom bestowed ;
no descendant or representative can
wear It, and Legislatures are asked to
make it a penal ofTsnoa if this rulo Is
7. Before a descendant can secure
the cross in any county, three consecu
tive monthly notices must be inserted
in the newspapers of such county, ask
ing veterans to sond In their applica
tions, and at tho expiration of three
months, if no other applications are
sent In tho bestowal of crosses upon
descendants may begin.
Tho forogo'.ng are tho prominent and
essential features of the rules ami reg
ulations for conferring the orosiea ot
honor, exempt the days designated for
tho cero'nonlcs wh'oh aro tho birth
days of Joffe-son Davis (Juno It) a d
R. E I.eo (Jan. Ji)),and tho genera1
Memorial Day, which is usually the
10th of May, the anniversary of Stone
wall Jacksm's death.
The crosses arc being distributed
among tho vetorans by the hundreds
and tlnusandson the days designated,
and It will not he many yoars until
every veteran living will have received
this honor at tho hands of tho women
of the South, an honor and distinction
that is highly appreciated by all the
veterans. It has been said that tho
crosses aro made from ci.nnon used in
battle during the war botwoen the
States, which would bs most appro- j
pnate as theso weapons of warf iro as
a general rule passed from the North I
to the South, and hence the tribute is 1
from both eeotions of our common
country, if the statement be true.

When a good man runs for the houso

the people aro not doing him any spe

them a favor to run As a rule, a man
really fit to go to the legislature can
not go without making a sacrifice.
Sometimes an able, strong man, capa
ble of doing good service, reasons Ibis
way; "I can't leave my business for six
weeks in winter without the loss of
much more than the pittanco of a sal
ary. I can't be elected except by beg
glug for the ollico. I don't want the of

matter of duty to my peoplo. Yet to
got the votes I would have to appear
as though I wore asking a favor. Why
should I go through this county with
tho air of a man pleading for what will
do mo no gold and what I would rath
er not have? No, I we n't run." That is
a reason why many good men stiy out
of politics. Genornlly, our best men
can mako moro money and count for
more in the community out of ofliee

THE EMPTY SLEEVE. |
The following poem was written dur
ing the war by Dr. George W. Bagby
Tom, old fellow, I grieve to see
That sleeve hanging loose at your siil
The arm you lost was worth to me
Every Yankee that ever died,
i'.ii i you don't mind It, at all:
You swear you've a beautiful stump,
And laugh at the damnable ball?
Tom, 1 knew you were always a trump.
A right trood arm, a nervy hand,
A wrist as strong as a sapling oak,
Buried deep on the MaWern sand
To laugh at that is a sorry joke.
Never again your Iron grip
Shall I feel on my .shrinking pain?
Tom, Tom, I see your trembling lip!?
How on earth oan I be calm?
Well, the arm Is gone, it Is true,
But the one that is nearest the heart
Is left and that's as good as two.
Tom, old fellow, what makes you start!
Why. man, she thinks that empty
A badge of honor: so do I,
And all of us. I do believe
The old fellow Is going to cry."
"She deserves a perfect man, you say,
You were not worth her In your prime.
Tom, that arm that has turned to clay
Your whole body has made sublime,
For you havo placed on Malvorn's
Tho proof and pledge of a noble life,
And the rcBt henceforward of higher
Will bo dearer than all to your wife."
"I seo the people io the street
Look at your sleove with kindling oyes,
And know you, Tom, there's naught so
As homage shown on mute surmise,
Bravely your arm In battle strove;
Truly for freedom's sake you gave It;
It hr.8 perished, but a nation's love
In proud remembrance will save It."
"Go to your sweetheart then forthwith,
You're a fool for staying so long.
Woman's love you'll find no myth,
But a truth tender, loving and strong,
And whon around her slender belt,
Your loft arm Is clasped In fond em
Your right will thrill, as if It felt,
In Its grave the usurper's place."
"As I look Lhro tgh the opening years
I see a one-arm^d married man,
A lltt'e woman, with smiles and tears,
Is helping as hard as she can
To put on his coat and pin his sleeve,
Tio Uisrcravat and cut his food,
Ancfl say as those fancies weave,
That is Tom and the woman he wooed."
"The years roll on and then I see
A wedding picture, bright and fair;
1 look closer, and It's plain to me
That is Tom with the sliver hair,
He gives away the lovely bride,
And the guests linger, loth to leave
Tho house of him in whom they pride,
Brave old Tom with empty sleeve."
