Why Not Manufacture!
If tho State of South Carolina finds
it profitable to sell whiskey why does
it not make whiskey ? Why the corn
whiskey distillery In Columbia be a
private concern with dispensary effi
cials, perhaps, stockholders .in it? If
Ihe Stato must buy.two million do'
lara worth of whiskey each yea**, why
should it pay a big profit to dealers
and manufacturers In other States?
The loving father of tho dispensary,
our noble leader B. R. Tlllman de
clared at Qaffoey that the purchase of
case goods should be st pped and what
our noble leader says usually goes?ex
cept In Cherokee and Greenville, some
times. If the dispensary should sell
only ' fuss X", two X, three X and four
X, the manufacture of the whiskey
would be simple. With a peck of nub
bins, a bold spring, a washpot, 40 foet
of gas pipe, a little nitro-glycerioe,
strychnine, petroleum and hell, any

Each worthy immigrant who makes
his homo in South Carolina helps to
mako this a white man's country.
We are prone at times to be boastful
about our peop'.e, our State and our
country. A reasonable amount of 6uch
pitting of ourselves on the back is ex
cusable. Perhaps it Is even beneficial.
Nevertheless, we are not the only peo
ple In the woi Id.
We have In mind two immigrants
who hnve lived in thin town 30 or 40
years or longer. We do not remember
a good came in which they have not
been enlisted. Our county is Inhabited
by good peoples. The natives will
average with the best in tho world.
Nevertheless, we believe that every
thinking man in Laurens will agree
with us when wo say that If 1000 men
of the stamp of J. J. Pluss and L. G.
Balle should settle in Laurens county
in 1005 the average of our citizenship
in intelligence, sobriety, iudustry,
honesty and tho other manly virtues
would be so dist'netly raised that no
othor county in South Carolina or in
the United States could risk compari
flon with Laurens.
Moreovo;*, they are not the only Im
migrants who have been and are valua
ble clt'/.ens. Wo think that the older
people of Laurons recalling the for
eigners who have lived and died In
Laurons County within the past half
century, will bjar wl'ness that 'hey
have as a rulo been good men and true.

softly down the stair of the ban. She
had donned a long cloak, and from tin
der the edge of its hood, drawn over
her hair, her blue eyes looked out with
a feverish brightness.
The hall was lighted with a great
lantern, whose yellow Mood added to
the (lower white pallor of her counte
nance. The clock was striking 10. The
soldiers had sought the fort to gain
early rest, and the tOWIlfolk were gone
home. The long parlor was still and
dark. Through the open door Anne
could see the litter of tankards and
pipes and n lean dog, stretched with
black muzzle laid to the threshold,
She slipped through the door and to
the highroad, and then, with tremu

The earl chuckled In his chair. "So

Anne bad drawn herself up, her face
pale with this added humiliation. She

Later, in her own chamber, Anus
opened her window and, leaning far
out on the ledge, gazed Into tho night.

" 'wandering in the blue.' " Then, after
