Is a lawyer lit to be a member of tbe
South Carolina Legislature? We ask
this ques ion because once in a while
some man seriously suggests that law
yers should not be allowed to particip
ate in making laws. There are a few
excollont p-ople loft, even In Laurens
county, who are suspicious of lawyers.
There are very few,?which speaks
well for iho general average of the
county's common sense.
Tin. Advertiser Is indiilerent
whether the legislature be made up of
banker*, mill hands, doctors, preach
ers, furmers or printers, provided they
be men of intelligence and honesty.
What Laurens needs to dodge is in
capables, Wo should avoid choosing
men solely becauso they are good and
nice. Neither should tbey be picked
merely because they have brains. A
mixture of common-sense, training to
do things well and common honesty Is
what tho country wants in legislator^-?
and what tho State wants.
Concerning lawyers, 14 years of ex
perience in running a newspaper in
Laurens tells us that lawyers are better
average payers of debts than any other
profession or calling oxcept bankers.
Wo furlhor observe that no lawyers
have made fortunes in th's town and
that most of tham are comparatively
poor. Wo know of farmers in this
oounty who have mado twice as much
in tho same time as the mos*, successful
lawyer here has mado.
When a successful lawyer of standing
asks to go to thi legislature, the people
should be thankfu'. If tho peop'e elect
him, he is under no obligations to
them, farthor than to do his duty. The
balanco is on the other side. When a
gOQd lawyer, trained and educated and
bonrst as tho average man, goes to the
legislature ho must, di so at a consid
erable sacrifice to his business Inter
ests. This is into of other men as well
as lawyers but more especially of law
yers. When a first class man of any
prolesston or busintsi olfers f jr a legis
lative ofllco, the voter wh > thluks he
is conferring a grea1. favor by p itting
in a ballot for him is a fool. Tho ob
ligation is on tho part of the candi
date who gives the voter the chance to
f.ivor himself. Lawyers are litte 1 for
law-making. Tbe legislature would bs
an unwieldy and helpless body without
The trouble with the country is that
the best lawyers, best farmers and best
business men will not "run for tbe leg
islature." Take for example, an ex
coptlona'ly able, practical and echol
arly newspaper man, such as William
II. Wallace of Newberry. Does he want
to trot over Nowberry county with the
manner of a mm begging somoboly to
do him ftvors In order to go to tho leg
islature? The position he ho ds, that
of a newspaper man of recognized
ability and inlluence, Is mora do irable
than that of state ?ona'.or from New
berry. It is reaUy a bigger position
than any state ofllce below the govern
orship and to hold a .-t?te office might
make him a smaller mm than he is.
/Vith the exception of the great lead
ers of congress, the editorship of a
newspaper of general ciiculatlon and
lnportanca is distinctly a higher posl
lou in every way tv.an membership in
hat body. tVmerely mention iheso

'?/"W^IIE American has escaped!"
was the cry that spread
through Edelweiss the next
It brought undisguised relief to the
faces of thousands. There was not one
who upbraided Huron Dangloss for Ida
astounding negligence. Never before
had a criminal PHcapcd from the tow
er. The only excuse, uttered In woe
begone tone, was that the prison had
not been constructed or maimed for
auch clever scoundrels as Yankees
good name for audacity.
The full story of the daring break
for liberty flushed from lip to Hp dur
ing the day, and It was known all over
the water Bwcpt city before noon.
Baron DnngloBS himself had gone to
the prisoner's cell early In the morning,
mystified by the continued absence of
the guard. The door was locked, but
from within came gronns and cries.
Alarmed at once, the captain procured
duplicate keys aud entered the cell.
Theru he found the helpless, blood cov
ered Ogbot, bound hand and foot and
almost dead from loss of blood. Tho
clothes of tho American were on the
floor, while his own were missing, gone
with the prisoner.
Ogbot as soon as ho was able related
his experience of the night before. It
was whilo making bis rounds at mid
night that he heard moans from the
cell. Animated by a feeling of pity, ho
opened the slab door and asked if ho
wero ill. The wretched American was
lying on the bed, apparently suffering.
He said something which the guard
could not understand, but which he
took to be a plea for assistance. Not
suspecting a trick, the kindly guard
unlocked the second door and stepped
to the bedside only to have the slek
man rise suddenly and deal him n
treacherous blow over the head with
tho heavy stool he had secreted behind
him. Ogbot knew nothing of what fol
lowed, so effective was the blow. When
he regained consciousness, he was ly
ing on tho bed Just as the captain had
found him. Tho poor fellow, over
whelmed by the enormity of his mis
take, begged Dangloss to shoot him at
once. But Dangloss had him conveyed
to the hospital ward and tenderly cared

Ogbot pass from tho prison shortly aft
er 12, nnd the mortified chief admitted
that some one had gone through Ids
prlvato apartment. As the prisoner
had taken Ogbot's keys, he experi
enced little difficulty in getting outside
the gates. But, vowed Dangloss storni
lly, ho should bo recaptured if it re
quired the efforts of all the policemen
in Edelweiss. The chagrin of tbc grim
old captain, who had never lost a pris
oner, was pitiful to behold.
The forenoon was half over before
Harry Anguish heard of his friend's
escape. To soy that ho was paralyzed
would be putting it much too mildly.
There is no language that can ade
quately describe his sensations. For
getting his bodyguard, he toro dowu
the street toward tho prison, wild with
anxiety and doubt. He met Boron Dan
gloss, tired and worn, near the gate,
but the old officer could tell him noth
ing except what he had learned from
"Oh, I beg pardonl"
Ogbot. Of one thing there could ho no
doubt?Lorry was' gone. Not knowing
where to turn or what to do, Anguish
raced off to the castle, his bodyguard
having located him In tho meantime.
He was more in need of their protec
tion than ever.
At the Castle gates he encountered a
party of raying Axphainlans, crazed
with anger over tho flight of tho man
whose lifo they had thirsted for so
ravenously. Had he been unprotected
Anguish would have fared badly at
their bands, for they were outspoken
in their assertions that he bad aided
Lorry in the escape. One fiery little
fellow cast a glove in the American's
face and expected a challenge. An
guish snapped bia fingers and sarcas
tically invited the insulter to meet him
next winter in a battle with snowballs,
upon which tho aggressor blasphemed
In three languages and 800 gestures.
Anguish and his men passed inside the
gates, which had been barred to the
others, and struck out rapidly for the
The Princess Yetlve was sleeping
soundly, peacefully, With a smile on
her Hps, when her prime minister sent
an excited attendant to Inform her of
the prisoner's escape. She sat up In
bed, and, with her hands clasped about
her knees, sleepily announced Hint sho
would receive him after her coffeo was
served. Then she summoned her maids.
Her uncle nnd aunt, the Countess
Dagmar (whose merry brown eyes
wero so full of pretended dismay that
the princess could scarcely restrain a
smile), nnd Gnspon, the minister of
finance, were awaiting her appearance.
She heard the count's story of tho es
cape, marveled at the prisoner's nu
daclty and firmly announced that ev
erything possible shonld be done to ap
prehend him. With a perplexed frown
on her brow and a dubious twist to her
lips, she said:
"I suppose I must offer a reward?"
"Certainly I" exclaimed her uncle.
?'About W) gnvvoe, uncle?"
"FlftyJ" orled tne two men, aghast
"Isn't that enough?"
"For the murderer of a whwp't" de
manded Gnspon. "It would be abseid,
your highness. He 1? a most important
"Quito so. Ho is a most Important
person. I think I'll offer r?.ooo gavvos."
"More like it. Ho 1h worth that, at
least," agreed Uncle Caspar.
"Beyond a doubt," sanctioned Gas
"I a in glad you do not consider me
extravagant," She said demurely. "You
may have the placards printed at once."
she went on. addressing tbe treasurer.
"Say that a reward of 5,000 gavvos
will be paid to tbe person who delivers
Grenfntl Lorry to mo."
"Would It not be bettor to say 'de
livers Grenfall Lorry to the tower?'"
"You may say 'to the undersigned*
and sign my name," she said reflective
"Very well, your highness. They
shall be struck otT this morning."
"In large typo, Guspon. You must
catch III ill if you can," she added. "He
is a very dangerous man, and royalty
needs protection." With this wise bit
of caution she dismissed the subject
and began to talk of the storm.
As tbe two young plotters were has
tening up the stairs later on an at
tendant approached and informed tbe
princess that Mr. Anguish requested an
"Conduct him to my boudoir," she
said, her eyes sparkling with triumph.
In the seclusion of tbe boudoir she and
tho countess laughed like children over
tbe reward that had been so solemnly
"Five thousand gavvos!" cried Dag
mar, leaning back In her chair to em
phasize the delight she felt. "What a
Tap, tap, came a knock on tbe door,
and in the same Instant it flew open,
for Mr. Anguish was In a hurry. As
be plunged Into their presence a pair
of heels found the floor spasmodically.
"Oh, I beg pardon!" be gasped as if
about to fly. "May I come In?"
"Not unless you go outside. You
uro already In, it seems," said tho prin
cess, advancing to meet him. Tbe
countess was very still and sedate. "I
am BO glad you have come."
"Heard about Lorry? The fool is
out and gone!" he cried, unable to re
strain himself. Without a word she
dragged him to the divan, and, be
tween them, be soon bad the whole
story poured Into his ears, the princess
on one side, the countess on tbe other.
"You are a wonder!" ho exclaimed
when all the facts were known to him.
He executed a little dance of approval,
entirely out of place in the boudoir of
n princess, but very much In touch
with prevailing sentiment. "But what's
to become of ineV" he asked after cool
ing down. "I have no excuse for re
maining In QratlSttirk, and I don't like
to leave him here either."
"Oh, I have made plans for you,"
said she. "You are to bo held as hos
"I thought of your predicament last
night, and hero Is tbe solution: This
Very day I shall Issue an order forbid
ding you the right to leave Edel weiss.
You will not be In prison, but your ev
ery movement Is to be watched. A
strong guard will have you under sur
veillance, and any attempt to escape or
to communicate with your friend will
result in your confinement and bis de
tection. In this way you may stay
here until the time comes to fly. Tho
Axphaln people must be satisfied, you
know. Your freedom will not be dis
turbed. You may conic and go as you
like, but you are ostensibly a prisoner.
By detaining you forcibly we gain a
point, for you are needed hero. There
Is no other way in which you can ex
plain a continued presence In CJrau
Stnrk. Is not my plan a good one?"
"It Is beyond comparison," ho said,
rising and bowing low. "So shrewd Is
this plan that you make mo a hostage
forever. I shall not escape Its memory
if I live to be a thousand."
At parting she said seriously:
"A great deal depends on your dis
cretion, Mr. Anguish. My guards will
watch your every action, for they are
not in tho secret?excepting Qulnnox?
and any attempt on your part "to com
municate with Grcufnll Lorry will bo

"Dally ? as a hostage," bo replied,
glancing toward tbe countess.
"That means until the other man Is

As bo left tho costlo he gazed at the
distant building In the sky and won
dered how It had over been approached
In n carriage. She had not told him
that Allude drove for miles over wind
ing roads that led to the monastery up
a gentler slope from-tho rear.

between the bowing lines of court lor.i

pened, expressing humiliation over tho
fact that her olllcers bad boon unable
to accomplish nnytblng, uddlng that
she did not believe tho fugltlvo could
get away from (Jraustark safely with
out her knowledge. Tho old princo
was working himself back Into the vio
lent rage that bad been temporarily
HUbdued, nnd at last broko out in u
vlelous denunciation of tho careless
ness that bad allowed the man to es
cape. He lirst insisted that Dangloss
and his Incompetent assistants bo
thrown into prison for lifo or executed
for criminal negligence; then he de
manded the li'e of Harry Anguish as
an alder and abettor in the lllght of
the murderer. In both coses tho prin
cess firmly refused to take the notion
demanded, 't hen she acquainted him
with her Intention to detain Anguish
as hostage and to have his every ac
tion watched In the hope that a clew to
the whereabouts Of the fugitive might
be discovered, providing, of course,
that the friend knew anything at all
about the matter. The Duke of Mlz
rox and others loudly joined in the cry
for Anguish's arrest, but she bravely
held out against them and in the end
curtly informed them that the Ameri
can, whom she believed to be Innocent
of all ?complicity In the escape, should
bo subjected to no indignity other thau
detention in the city under guard, as
she had ordered.
"I insist that this man bo cast into
prison nt once," snarled the white lip
"You are not nt liberty to command

slowly and distinctly. "I nm ruler
Bolaroz gasped and was speechless
for some seconds.
'.'You shall not be ruler long, madam,"
lie said malevolently, significantly.
"But I am ruler now, nnd, as such, I
nsk your highness to withdraw from
my castle. I did not know that I was
to submit to these threats and insults
or I should not have been kind enough
to grant you an audience, prince though
J'OU are. When I ennie to this room, it
was to give you my deepest sympathy
and to receive yours, not to bo insulted.
You have lost a son, I my betrothed.
It ill becomes you, Princo Bolaroz, to
vent your vlndktlveness upon me. My
men are doing nil In their power to
capturo the man who has so unfortu
nately escaped from our clutches, and
I shall not allow you or any one else to
dictate the manner In which we are to
proceed." She uttered these words
cuttingly and at their conclusion arose
to leave tho room.
Bolaroz heard her through In surprise
nnd with conflicting emotions. There
was no mistaking her indignation, so
he deemed it policy to bottle his wrath,
overlook the most offensive rebuke his
vanity had ever received and submit
to what was evidently a Just decision.
"Stay, your highness. I submit to
your proposition regarding the other
stranger, although I doubt its wisdom.
There Is but one in whom I am really
interested?the one who killed my son.
There is to bo no cessation in tho effort
to ilnd him, I am to understand. I
now have a proposition. With me are
800 of my bravest soldiers. I offer
them to you in order that you may bet
ter prosecute the search. They will re
main here, and you may use them iu
any way you see lit. The Duke of MIz
rox will linger In Edelweiss, and with
him you and yours may always confer,
lie also is at your command. This man
must be retaken. I swear by all that
Is above and below me he shall bo
found if I bunt Hie world over to ac
complish that end. He shall not es
cape my vengeance!
"And bark you to this: On the 20th of
next month I shall demand payment of
the debt duo Axpbaln. So deeply Is
my heart set on ,'ie death of this (Iron
fall Lorry that I agree now, beforo all
these friends of ours, that if be be cap

stark ton years ?>f grace. If he is still
at large, l shall claim my own. This
Offer, 1 believe, most gracious YetiVO,
will greatly encourage your people in
the effort to capture the man we seek."
The princess heard the remarkable
proposition with face deathly pale,
heart scarcely beating. Again was tho
duty to Grnustark thrust cruelly upon
her. She could save the one only by
sacrificing the other.
"Wo will do all In our power to?to
prove oursolves grateful for your mag
nanimous offer," sbo said. Ab ehe pass
ed froui tho room, followed by her un
cle, she heard tho Increasing bun of
excitement on nil sides, the unrestrain

conspiring to sound her doom. Which

"Wo must catch this man, Yetlve,"
said Halfont on the stairway. "There

"Except our inability to do so," she
murmured. Iu that moment she deter

was innocent, and it was Graustark's

knew that he originated and, after many years of per
sistent eflort, perfected " Foerg's Remedy." So
highly did I appreciate it as .1 perfect and complete
remedy for all kinds and degrees of blood impurities
that I endeavored, twenty years or more ago, to
organize a joint-stock company to place this wonderful
remedy on the world's market. Mr. Foerg very
properly declined to surrender the formula for making
the remedy unless a sufficient amount of paid-up stock
was raised, etc., and this I failed to do. The; Mr.
Foerg himself, in a limited way, made and sold it for
twenty years before his death. By his will he left tho
formula for making this remedy to Mr. Hugh Mayes,
of Princeton, Ky., now Secretary and Treasurer of
"The Foerg Remedy Company," Evansville, Ind. I
know it tobe a fact "that Mr. Foerg for twenty years
offered $1,000 spot cash (he was amply able to make
such an offer) for any ca6e based on blood impurity
which his remedy would not cure, and I know that
he was often challenged to the contest, and he never
lost a case. C T. ALLEN.

Now, lard, as you know, is made from hog fat. It may or may
not be pure, Cottolene is always pure, because it contains nothing but
refined vegetable oil and choice beef suet. It is always uniform, and
wo guarantee tho quality. Besides, it is never sold in bulk liko lard,
but comes in scaled tin pails, and is not open to contamination. So
much for purity and healthfulness.
As to economy - Cottolene is richer than lard. It requires, therefore,
but two-thirds the quantity to secure better results. This means economy.
Why not do justice to your stomach and pivc it a digestible product
rather than an indigestible one? Your grocer will start you right with
a pail of Cottolene.

I want five traveling salesmen on salary and
commission to sell life insurance. I want busi
ness men who are able to earn ;il least #ioo.gg
per month. The State Life paid thirty per cent
dividend last year on policies over four years old.
No other Company did. The State Life operates
tinder a law which requires it to maintain on
deposit with the State Department enough secu
rities to cover all its liabilities. No other Com
pany operating in South Carolina complies with
such a law. I want men with stickitiveness
to sell those policies. How about you? Can
you sell better goods than those sold by your
competitors? If so, you want to write to me.
