W. W. Ball,
LAUBENS. S. C, June 15, 1904.
The National Campaign.
Mr. Ueurst will have a respectable
following in the St. Louis convention.
Ho will by no means be nominated but
he may give trouble. Col. Bryan is to
be there at the head of the Nebraska
delogatlon. The "Solid South" will also
be there either as backing Judge
Parker or opposing with a man of
Parker's kind tho purposes and poli
cies of Messrs. Hearst and Bryan. This
is putting the matter iu plain If un?
pleasant English. In the greatest stato
of tho South, Georgia, for example, a
"Palmer and Buckner" editor is ono of
the delegates at largo, Col. Charlie
Pendlcton of Macon,?the ablest politi
cal writer in Goorgla by tho way. Tho
Editor of th > Atlanta Journal is an
other of tho ''Big Four" from that
stato. la S>U)h Carolina wo have gone
n >t quits so far b-it th) pultlon of our
delogatlon to tho convention ij practi
cally the samo, so tar as results aro to
bo a test.
Meanwhilo, tho loudest sboutors for
Bryan, such men as Sonator Tillman
and Senator Latlmor will bo found
squarely in lino with "Wall street'"
the "money power" and the Belmonts,
this year. Tom Watson of Georgia,
brilliant man, was a populist ten years
ago and called himself a populist. Ho
is no cloior t) the "money powor" and
"tho plutocracy" now than ho was
tiioa. Tom Watson imagined that a
man should bo sorious and sincere in Uls
political views. They promptly beat
Thomas out of his soat in congress.
Tillman and Latlmor in this state advo
cated tho measures and policies that
Watson advocatod and porhaps in even
noisier terms. They, meanwhile oallod
thomselvos Democrats. Now tboy havo
"como round" and aro denying tho
political gospel that they swore by
those few yoars ago. We spoak of
Tillman and Litlmer merely as exam
ples. There aro thousands of others
liko them. Thero aro practical men of
common senso who know that to suc
ceed la the politic! trade tho "psople"
must bo humored and petted and
fooled, hand tod like muling babies and
told big tales of the "bogey man" and
"black dog." They realize that they
must not have convictions, that they
must not feel bound in conscience to any
system of principles, that they must
watch the straws so as to blow with the
wind thomselves. Thoy are oxtremoly
able and smart politicians. Tbe state of
South Carolina should be proud of
them. Wo a-e a groat etate anyhow.
Why Only Throe!
The campaign is about to open. The
signs ard that tho contest will be con
fined to the soven or eight or ten citi
zens who wish to have places on the
railroad commission. Why should not
all mou run for this oflice. It pays a
salary of $1000, the torm is six years,
tho commissioners aro givon free
transportation on all tho railways and
tho salaries are paid by the railway
companies. Why tho general assem
bly does not increase the number of
commissioners from three to three
thousand is a puzzle that wo have novor
been able to understand. The stato of
South Carolina is paying $200,000. tho
year in pensions. If throe thousand
gentlemou could be paid $1000. a year
by tho railroads tho pansion list could
be reducod threo thousand. Of course
it would not cost the state a coppor.
The railroads would foot tho bills. The
money box of the railroads is inex
haustible, so is that of the telephone
and tolograph companies; why shouldn't
thoy unload it upon and distribute it
among the people? There are those
who fancy that tho railroad compaulos
in ono way or another get tho commls
aionors salaries out of the pockets of
people but this cannot be true. If it
were truo, our astuto legislators would
not have provided that the railroads
should pay the salaries because the
legislators arc always solemnly deter
mined that the people shall pay no
taxes. Tho legislature would never
have imposed an indirect tax upon the
The Advkrtiser Is not to be inter
protod as suggesting that the mombers
of the railroad commission are pen
sioners. Wo do not reflect upon tbelr
vast usefulness. To whom aro they
useful? It is not for us to guess. If they
are paid by the railroads they ought to
be useful to tho railroads. Every man
should bo loyal and faithful to his em
ployers. 1 f thoy are paid by tho poo
plo, directly or indirectly, or by a de
vious and winding route, they ought to
be useful to tho people,?by a winding
and devious route. We are convinced
thr.t the railroad commission is ex
ceedingly useful. Moreover we are
confident that it is even more orna
mental than useful.

WEN'S hope and bright eour
<!*??, Iu spite of all h?r pain,
were wonderful to witness.
But all this cheery hope and
courage und patience snuffed out as a
CQndle, leaving noisome darkness to
settle down iu that sick room, from the
day of the doctors' consultation.
The verdict was clear and final. The
old doctor( who loved Gweu as his
own, was Inclined to hope against
hope, but Fawcctt, the clover young
doctor from the distant town, was
positive in his opinion. Tbe scene Is
clear to me now, after many years.
Wo three stood In the outer room, tlie
Puke and her father were with Gweu.
So earnest was the discussion that
none of us heard the door open Just as
young Fawcctt was saying In inclslvo
"No! 1 can see no hope. The child
can never walk again."
There was a cry behind us.
"What! Never walk again? It's a
tie!" There stood the Old Timer, white,
"Hush!" said the old doctor, point
ing at the open door. He wrm too
late. Even as he spoke there came
from the Inner room a wild, unearthly
cry as of some dying thing, and, as
we stood gassing at one another with
awe stricken faces, wo beard Owen's
voice as In quick, sharp pain.
"Daddy! Daddy! Come! What do
they say? Tell mo, daddy. It is not
true! It Is not true! Look at me,
She pulled up her father's haggard
faro from the'bed.
"Oh, daddy, daddy, you know it's
true. Never walk again!"
She turned with a pitiful cry to tho
Duke, who stood white and stiff, with
arms drawn tight across bis breast, on
the other side of the bed.
"Oh, Duke, did you hear them? Yon
told me to be brave, and I tried not to
ery when they hurt me. But I can't
be brave! Can I, Duke? Oh, Duke!
Never to ride again!"
She stretched out her hands to him.
But the Duke, leaning over her and
Holding her hands fast in hin, could
?nly , sny brokenly over and over:
"Don't, Qwenl Don't, Owen, dear!"
But the pitiful, pleading voice went
"Oh. Duke! Must I always lie here?
Must I? Why must I?"
"God knows," answered the Duke
btjterly, under his breath, "I don't!"
She caught at tho word.
4,Poes he?" she cried eagerly. Then
%Jfcepaupcd suddenly, turned to me and
Sold, "Do you remember he said some
day 1 could not do as I likedV"
1 was puzzled.
"The Pilot!" she cried impatiently.
"Don't you remember? And I said I
should do as I liked till I died."
I nodded my bend and said, "But you
know you didn't mean It."
?'But I did, and I do," she cried, with
passionate vehemence, "and I will do
as I like! 1 will not lie here! 1 will
ride! I will I I Will! 1 will!" and she
struggled up, clinched her lists and
sank buck faint and weak. It was not
u pleasant sigld. but gt'cwsome. Her
rage against that Unseen Omnipotence
was so delimit and so helpless.
Those wore dreadful weeks to Owen
and to all about her. Tho constant
pain could not break her proud spirit;
she shed no tears, but She fretted and
chaff d and grew more Imperiously ex
acting every day. Ponkn and Joe she
drove liko a slave mnsler, and even her
father, when he could not understand
her wishes, she impatiently banished
from her room. Only the Duke could
please or bring her any cheer, and even
the Duke began to feel that the day
WOS not far off when he, too, would
fall, and the thought made him despair.
Her pain was hard to bear, but harder
than the pain was her longing for the
open air and the free, llower strewn,
breeze swept prairie. But most pitiful
of nil were the days when In her utter
weariness and uncontrollable unrest
she would pray to be taken down Into
"Oh, It Is so cool and shady," she
would plead, "and the flowers up In tho
rocks and the vines and things are all
so lovely. 1 am always better there. I
know I should be better," till the Duke
would be distracted and would come to
mc and wonder what the end woidd be.
One day, when the strain had been
more terrible than usual, the Duke
rode down to me and said:
"Look here. This thing can't go on.
Where Is the Pilot gone? Why doesn't
he stay where he belongs? I wish to
heaven he would got through with his
"He's gone where he was sent," I re
plied shortly. "You don't set much
store by him when he does como round.
He is gone on an exploring trip through
the Dog lake country. Ho'll bo back
by the end of next week."
"I say, bring him up, for heaven's
sake!" said the Duke. "He mny be of
some use, nnd anyway It will bo a new
face for her, poor child." Then he
added, rather penitently: "I fear this
thing is getting on to my nerves. She
almost drove me out today. Don't lay
it up ngnlnst me, old chap."
It was n new thing to hear the Duke
confess his need of any man, much less
penitence for a fault. I felt my eyes
growing dim, but I said roughly;
"You bo banged) I'll bring tbe Pilot
tip when he comes."
It was wonderful how we had all
como to confide In tho Pilot during his
year of missionary work among us.
Somehow the cowboy's nnmo of "Sky
Pilot" seemed to express better than
nnythlug else tho place be held with
us. Certain It is that when, in their
dark hours, any of tho fellows felt In
need of help to strike the "upward
trail" they went to tho Pilot, and so
tho name first given In chaff came to
bo the name that expressed most truly
the deep and tender feeling these
rough, big hearted men cherished for
When the Pilot enmo homo I care
fully prepnred him for his trial, telling
all that Owen had suffered nnd striv
ing to make him feel how desperate
wnn her case when oven tho Duko hnd
to confess himself beuten. Ho did not
seem sufficiently Impressed. Then 1
pictured for him ?11 her fierce willful
ness nnd her fretful humors, her Impa
tience with those who loved her nnd
were wearing out their souls and
bortic* for her. "In short," I concluded,
"she doesn't enre a rush for anything
In heaven or earth, und will yield to
neither iuun uor Qod."
The Pilot*? eyes bad been kindling as
I talked, but be only answered quietly:
"What could you expect?"
"Well, I do think ehe might show
some signs of gratitude aud some gen
tleness toward thoso ready to die for
"Oh, you dol" said he with high
scorn. "You nil combine to ruin her
temper und disposition with foolish
flattery and weak yielding to her
whims, right or wrong; you smile at
her imperious pride and encourage her
willfulness, and then not only wonder
at the results, but blamo her, poor
child, for all. Oh, you are a flue lot,
the Duke and all of you!"
He had a most exasperating ability
for putting one In the wrong, nnd I
could only think of the proper and suf
ficient reply long nftor the opportunity
for making It had passed. I wondered
what the Duke would say to this doc
trine. All the fallowing day, which
was Sunday, I could see that Qwen was
on the Pilot's mind. Ho was strug
gling With the problem of pain.
.Holiday morning found us on the
irny to tho Old Timer's ranch, and
what a morning It was! How beauti
ful our world seemcdl About us
rolled tho round topped, velvet hills,
brown and yellow or faintly greon,
spreading out behind us to tho broo4
prnlrlo, and before, clambering un nod
up to meet the purple bases of the
great mountains that lay their mighty
length along tho horizon and thrust nj>
white, suultt peaks Info tho hluo-eky.
On the hillsides and down In tho shel
tering hollows we could see toe
bunches of cattle and horses feeding
upon the rich grosses. High above,
the sky. cloudless and blue, arched Its
great kindly roof from prairie to moun
tain peaks, and ovor all, above, below,
upon prairie, hillsides nnd mountains,
the sun poured his floods of radiant
As we followed tho troll that wound
up and Into the heart of these rounded
hills and ever nearer to the purple
mountains, the morning breeze swept
down to meet us, bearing a thousand
scents and tilling us with Its owu fresh
life. One con know the quickening
Joyousness of these foothill breezes
only after he has drunk with wide open
mouth deep nnd full of them.
Through all this mingling beauty of
sunlit bills and shady hollows and pur
ple, snow peaked mountains we rode
with hardly a word, every minute add
ing to our heart Alling delight, but
ever with tho thought of the little
room where, shut In from all this out
side glory, lay (?wen, heart sore with
fretting and longing. This must have
been in the Pilot's mind, for he sud
denly held up his horse nnd burst out:
"Poor Owen, how she loves all this!
It Is her very life. How can sho help
fretting the heart out of her? To seo
this no more!'' He Hung himself off
bis bronco nnd snld, as If thinking
aloud: "It Is too awful! Oh, it is
cruel! I don't wonder at her I Ood
help me, what can I say to her?"
Ho threw himself down upon the
grass and turned over on his fuce.
After a few minutes ho appealed to
me, and his fare was BOrel) troubled.
"How can one go to her? It scorns
to me sheerest mockery to speak of pa
tience and submission to a wild young
thing from whom all this Is suddenly
snatched forever and this was very
life to her, too, remember."
Then he sprang up and we rode hard
for on hour till we enmo to the mouth
Of the canyon. Hero the trail grew dif
ficult, and we came to n walk. As we
went down Into tho cool depths the
spirit of tho canyon came to meet us
and took the Pilot In Its grip. He rode
in front, feasting his eyes on all the
wonders In that storehouse of beauty.
Treos of many kinds deepened the
shadows of the canyon. Over us
Waved the big elms that grew up hero
and there out of the bottom nnd around
their feet clustered low cedars and
homlocks nud bnlsams, while the
sturdy, rugged oaks nnd delicate, trem
bling poplars clung to tho rocky sides
nnd clambered up nnd out to the can
yon's sunny lips.
Bock of nil tho great black rocks,
decked with mossy bits and clinging
things, glistened cool nnd moist be
tween the parting trees. From many
an oozy nook the dainty clematis nnd
columbine shook out their bells, and.
lower down, from beds of many colored
moss the late wind flower and mnldon
hnlr and tiny violet lifted up brnve,
sweot faces. And through tho canyon
the Little Swan sang Its song to rocks
nnd flowers and overhanging trees, a
song of many tones, desp booming
where It took Its first sheer plunge, gay
chattering where It threw itself down
the ragged rocks and soft murmuring
where It lingered about the roots of the
loving, listening elms. A cool, sweet,
soothing place It was, with nil its
shades and sounds aud sllcncos, and,
lest it should be sad to any, the sharp,
quick sunbeams danced aud laughed
down through all Its leaves upon moss
es, flowers and rocks. No wonder thnt
the Pilot, drawing a deep breath as ho
touched (he prairie sod again, said:
"That does me good. It is better at
times even than the sunny hills. This
was Owen's best spot."
I sow that the conyon hod dono its
work with him. nis face was strong
nnd cnlm os the hills on n summer
morning, and with this face he looked
in upon Gwou. It was one of her bad
days nnd ouo of her bad moods, but like
n summer breeze he burst Into tho lit
"Oh, Gwon," ho cried, without a
word of greeting, much less of com
miseration, "we have had such a rldol"
And he spread out the sunlit, round
topped hills before her till I could feel
thoir very breezes in my face. This
the Duke hod never dared to do, fear
ing to grtevo her with pictures of what
sho should look upon no moro. But as
tho Pilot taUied, before she knew,
(twon wns out again upon her beloved
hills breathing their fresh, sunny air,
filling her heart with their multitu
dinous delights till her eyas grow blight
and tho lines of fretting sraoothod out
of hor fnco nnd she forgot her pain.
Then, boforo she could remember, he
had her down into tho canyon, feasting
her honrt with Its airs nnd sights and
sounds. The block, glistening rocks,
tricked out with moss nnd trolling
vines, tho greot elms nnd low, green
cedars, the oaks and shivering pop
lars, the clematis nnd columbine hang
'ng from the rocky nooks nnd the vio
lets and maiden hnlr deep bedded In
All this and for more ho showed her
With a touch so light as not to shake
tho morning dew from boll or leaf or
frond, and with a voice so soft nnd
full of music ns to fill our hearts with
the canyon's mingling sounds, and as
I looked upon her fnco I sold to my
self, "Dear old Pilot for this I shall
always love you well." As poor Owen
listened tho rapture of it drew the big
tears down her cheeks, olns, no lougor
brown, but whlto, and for thnt day at
least the dull, dead weariness was
lifted from her heart.
