'has been done through the
Spapers about hospitals in several

we retarded it entirely unfeasible to
undertake a hospital in a small town.

afford hospital treatment would want

Now we are not going to advocate

be a fair profit for the institution and

jTHE TELEGRAPHER'S STRIKE.
pe strike of the telegraphers bring
ire the public the whole question of
bn labor. The telegraphers may
^ain some concessions but the general
(pinion is that they will gain nothing.
iq strike was inaugurated in thevari
js cities by the local unions without
Tders from the national union's offi
cers and at the time when those ofli
'eors were conferring or about to confer
with Labor Commissioner Neill and
others in the hope of effecting a settle
ment of the pending dispute. The bus
iness of the country was tied up with
out the public having received fair no
tico and it seems that the strikers
have not received much sympathy.
The commercial telegraphers un
doubtedly are underpaid. At the same
time, the telegraphers 83 a rule, at
least those here in the South, are not
thoroughly trained men. The compa
nies pay so little that a man of fair ed
ucation is not tempted to enter the ser
We do not question the right of per
sons to forming labor unions but the
trouble is that the individual member
surrenders his conscience to the will
of the officers or to the majority. Take
the case of the Association Press ope
rators. These men are of a high order
of intelligence and they work hard but
their work has little responsibility at
jched to it - no more than has that of

[dictation. They receive about $1,000.
a year. How many bank presidents in
^aurens county get as much? Now
these operators deserted their posts
ilast week practically without any no
tice. Three quarters of an hour before
quit work themselves, thought
Lhat they would not be called upon to
drikc that night. Then they walked
^ut and tho newpapcrs were of course
dplcss, forced to pay for telegraphic
jports which there was nobody to re

But they had sworn an oath to
orders and when the order came,
fchcnf to quit work or per
imselvea. Yet tho quitting
notice was unquestionably a
wrong to the newspapers, caus
lem largo losses in money and un
iconvenicnce. The quitting was
thing, a very wrong thing to
id many of the operators know it
Idmit it but, they say we had to

into this: May a man surrender
ich of his freedom of action to
that he may do a wrong thing at
\mand of others without incurr
t? May men escape responsi

ether and attempting to

shoulders onto the shoulders of the
We hope that the strike will end by
the commercial telegraphers getting
better wages and shorter hours. As for
the press operators, they took advan
tage of their employers when they
were already in trouble and really have
no grievance of a substantial charac
ter. Consequently, they are receiving
little sympathy from anybody and they
are sure to lose their fight. Many of
them did not strike and the Associated
Press is already getting on smoothly
with many new men.
The sorrowful part of it is that many
good men with these $1,600. jobs, act
ing on impulse and finding themselves
entangled by the oaths to their order,
struck and are now idle, and idleness
means the loss of nearly five dollars a
day. Besides, most of them will, when
the strike ends, find their jobs gone
and will be compelled to accept jobs at
LAURENS, GhORGIA AND PROHIBITION.
While Thk Advereiser is firmly
convinced that it is expedient for Lau
rens County to abolish the sale of whis
key, it is not especially desirous to agi
tate the question. Nevertheless, there
is something that we insist upon say
Every South Carolina county adjacent
to Laurens has prohibition and one of
them, Greenwood, has never had a law
ful liquor shop. Every man of common
sense knows that while some whiskey
is illicitly sold in these counties, the
traffic has been reduced to a minimum
so that drunkeness has been in large
measure eliminated. There is not one
fiftieth part of the whiskey sold in
Spartanburg now that was sold in the
dispensary days. Not long ago a news
paper man of Greenville used this lan
guage to the editor of The Adverti
ser: "As for me, 1 am a prohibitionist.
Why, in the dispensary days it seemed
as though wo would have a murder
every Saturday night in Greenville.
Now they hardly ever occur."
The Advertiser is not a prohibi
tionist on principle and has never been.
In some places we think that licensed
saloons are most expedient. We think
that prohibition is best for Laurens be
cause it can be enforced in Laurens
and we believe the majority of the best
people, esj>ecially of the intelligent,
hard-working, debt-paping and money
making farmers who were and arc en
thusiastic followers of Senator Ben
Tillman, think that prohibition will im
prove labor conditions as well as pro
mote law and order in this county.
What we started out to speak of is
the passage of a state prohibition law
in Georgia which will go into effect on
the first day of next January. This
will make it much easier to enforce
prohibition in Laurens. There will be
no saloons or liquor stores in Augusta,
Atlanta and other Georgia cities. Most
of the North Carolina counties have
prohibition. The time has come, or will
come with the beginning of the new
year, when the importation of whiskey
for personal use even will be attended
with more inconvenience than ever.
Under these conditions, it is practically
certain that prohibition can be enforced
satisfactorily in Laurens. j
We have no objection to a man
j favoring the dispensary but he can no
longer cl&im to be a prohibitionist on
principle and vote for dispensaries "as
the best solution."
In a few months it will be ridiculous
to say that prohibition cannot be en
forced in Laurens as well as the laws
against assault and battery and petty
larceny are now enforced.
Let us not deceive ourselves. If we
retain dispensaries in Laurens, let us be
frank enough to admit that we do not
wish to be deprieved of grog-shops, let
us acknowledge that whiskey and hect
are good things and that we must have
a place where they can be bought con
veniently. And morever, that we wish
to obtain a revenue from the drinkers
of whiskey and beer. Let us not pious
ly pretend that we hold on to whiskey
shops because we can't prevent whiskey
sales when the counties on the other
side of the Saluda and Knoree prevent
them. Let us not make a laughing
stock of Laurens County.
However, the matter should not be a
political issue in Laurens. It should not
affect in the slightest degree the elec
tion of Senators and members of the
House next year. Our opposition to
the state dispensary was based on the
wish to get the issue out of state poli
tics. Therefore we wished a governor
and a legislature elected who would op
pose the state dispensary. This required
The Advertiser to array itself against
some of its warm friends who differed
in equal sincerity with it. A number
of the best and strongest men in the
state went down last year because they
wore on the unpopular side of the dis
pensary question but the people will
stand in their own light if they remem
ber it against such men as Messrs.
Manning McMahan and Sloan who ran
for governor and Messrs. Cunningham,
Gray and the others who ran on one side
or the other in this county.
The safety of the democratic party in
the county and state lies in the burying
of hatchets and now that the whiskey
question is local it should be left out of

Rattlesnakes Enliven a Picnic.
Boys at a picnic at Grceley, Pa., on
Wednesday had rare fun. Much of it
was due to the fact that there has not
been such a drought in Pike county for
fifteen years. The Delaware looks like
a lost river; the beds of the smaller
streams are dry.
The picnic was held at Rattlesnake
creek, in which so little water remains
that it does not hide the bowlders on
its bed. Every boy had a putty blower,
made from a straight piece of alder,
from which the pith had been punched,
leaving a caliber big enough for a bird
Soon the boys discovered a colony of
rattlesnakes preparing to cross the
creek toward them. Every Pike county
boy who is not a nature faker knows
that a rattlesnake hates to wet its rat
tlers. The boys hid in the bushes and
waited. Twelve rattlesnakes were in
the approaching bunch. The biggest
started ahead to reconnoiter; the others
waited on the bank.
The scout snake made his tor
tuous way from bowlder to bowlder,
and finally, his rattlers dry, reached
the picnic grounds. He rattled a wire
less "all right" to the eleven, which
crossed in Indian file. The boys turned
their putty blowers on the snakes and
fired fast and accurate broadsides.
Maddened by the hail of shot the
snakes turned on one another and soon
every one lay dead, killed by the venom
of each other. The twelve snakes'
cambined length was sixty-live feet.?
New York World.
New Remedy for Snake Bites.
The Rural World prints an article by
Dr. J. H. Phelps prescribing iodine for
snake bites. Dr. Phelps' cure is sim
ple and he declares it to be absolutely
effective. It is nothing more than
tincture of iodine injected into the veins
near the wound.
"This is an absolute cure," says Dr.
Phelps. "I have tried iodine on man
and animal, and it never has failed
me. Even without 'hypo' the use of
iodine is simple. If the skin is abraid
ed a short distance above the bite,
scratch, say, with a knife or any
sharp instrument so that the blood
comes, and iodine is poured on freely,
so it will get into the circulation, no
trouble will ever be experienced from
"My brother has several fine blooded
horses. A rattlesnake once bit one of
the finest of them on the nose, and my
brother promptly started to fill the an
imal up with whiskey, thinking that
might cure it. I was visiting him, and
asked him to let me try my remedy.
He scoffed at the idea, but consented.
I stuck the small blade of a knife in
above the wound, interjecting the io
dine, using a goosequil as a syringe,
and tho horse never felt the slightest
ill effects, although the bite was a se
vere one. This has been the case in
many bites I have treated.
"Another case was that of a ch'ld
that had been bitten by a water mocca
sin, the bite which is considered almost
fatal. But the iodine injected into the
veins promptly put a stop to tho spread
of the poison, and the baby's life was
saved after the parents had given up
"The same rule applies to the bites
of tarantulas, scorpions and their kind.
Iodine is a sovereign remedy for them
and every man who spends a day in the
country where reptiles abound should
carry a bottle of it with him. It may
make him a life saver."

The Daniel comet may now be aeon
in the East on a dear night between 3
and lam. (
The^Scientific American says of this
A new comet was discovered, by Mr.
Daniel at Princeton observatory on
June 9 and confirmed by Prof. W. R.
Brooks on June 11 at Smith observa
tory. It promises to be an interesting
object, und is now quite rapidly increas
ing in brightness. An observation
made on the morning of July 8 showed
it to be three times brighter than at
discovery. Its position was right as
censions lh. 29m. 130s.; declination North
7 deg. 0 m. This places it on the lore
leg of Aries, from which place the
comet is moving in a northwesterly
course. On August 1 it wil be in the
head of Taurus, and from the&s two
positions the course of the comet for
the present can be easily marked out.
The comet is now visible in a small tel
escope or field glass, and will soon be
visible to the naked eye in the eastern
On July, at 2 o'clock, the sky being
very clear, the comet was detected
with the naked eye as a misty star of
the fifth magnitude^ A tail one and a
half degrees in length was easily seen
in the 10-inch telescope. The tail was
also visible in the 3-inch finder.'
As land inccases in value one of the
things that will have to receive closer
attention is that of preventing wastes
that have heretofore existed. In no
better way can a move be made along
this line than in the starling of a flock
of sheep.- They will not only pick up
the bulk of their living from April to
December from vegetable growth that
usually goes to waste, but the farm will
be better and the work of tilling the
crops will be simplified because of the
cosnuniption of such waste. There is not
a farm but ought to have its quota of
from thirty to fifty sheep. If one wishes
to get a start with a herd, no way is
better probably than to purchase a few
well bred ewes five or six years old of
a neighbor or alKsomo stock centre
where at certain seasons of the year
they are drug on the market and may
be got at a very low price. The extra
price should be put into the ram, which
is generally considered better than half
the flock. Gradually the old ewes can
be disposed of and younger ewes used
to fill their places. As experience is
gained the flock may be enlarged.?
Ilarrimnn and the Public.
[Iarriman seems to have unlearned
the lesson which W. K. Vanderbilt
taught railroads?that the public should
be treated with profane contempt. Re
ports of investigations of railroads ac
cidents on his lines are to be made pub
lic, and outsiders will be admitted to
the sessions of the board making in
From a business point of view this
new departure of Ilarriman is wise.
Heretofore it has been assumed, with
out stopping to inquire, that the ma
jority of accidents arc due to faulty
equipment, foe which the railroad's
management is responsible. Rigid in
quiry should disclose the truth, and it
has been urged in favor of the plan of
publicity that it is certain to transpire
that individual carelessness plays an
important part in idling up railroads
casualties. In posession of the truth,
the public will lay the blame where it
belongs, whether the culpit be man or
master. Spartanburg Journal.

?'Face The Alusic."
There are several theories concerning
the origin of the slang phrase "Face
the music." It is said to have come
from the army. One of the difficulties
in training horses for the military ser
vice was that of getting them to face
the regimental band without cutting
Another authority says also that it
is of military origin, but that it was
applied to soldiers when they were
drummed out to the tune of "The
Rogue's March." Still another ver
sion is that it is used by actors behind
the scenes when preparing to go on

Dog Fennel to Start Balky Horse.
"A balky horse is the meanest thing
this side of Memphis," said A. L.
Nichols, of Brentwood, Tenn. "I had
a horse one time that balked on all oc
casions. He would balk if you whistled,
backed if you laughed and balked if you
looked from the corner of your eye.
"One day he balked and I could not
make him move forward to save me.
An old negro man happened along and
ipplied a remedy. Going to the side
of tho road he pulled a hand of dog fen
nel weed. Taking this he rubbed it un
der the horse's nose. The animal shook
his head once or twice, raised up his
tail and started down the road in the
merriest trot you ever saw. The treat
ment of dog fennel cured the horse of
balking, lie never made another attempt
to act ugly after that."?The Nashville
