We, the Democratic party of South

Fidilor Petty Makes Some Pointed Coin
inents on an Important Subject.
In a certain town there was a school
with some teachers wise and otherwise.
There was also a variety of parents,
wise or otherwise. Of courso there
were children, for there could have been
no school, for In this day and time when
most people arrive at the mature Bgoof
eighteen they are too wise to learn or
to tfo to school.
Now on a certain day when one of
these teaehers was going up and down
and across tho streets of her town sock
ing some one that would tajk to her or
listen to her wisdom, crossed the path
of one willing to listen to what she said.
Now lu re is one of her sayings;
"It is a shame (he way poor people
who depend on their daily toil for a Hv?
in>c indtilgo iheir children. They buy
three times as much candy, fruit and
other luxuries for their children's
luncheon as do tho parents of people
with much monoy." That teacher was
stating what sho bolievcd to bo a fact.
Agenoral statement or two may he
based on that habit. When peoplo Who
make little money bring up their chil
dren In extravagant ways thdyaro pre*
paring to send thriftless young men and
women into the world. Whonboys and
girls reach tho age of twenty thus
trained they aro helploss. Just as soon
as the parental props are knocked from
undor them they fall or walk in Cfookod
paths. Hoys and girls should have a
chance even before they are eighteen,
We do not believe in pressing them and
kooping them down. Hoys should havo
a chance to learn how to black their
own shoes, split stove wood, work the
garden, help put things right about tho
house and back yard. They should have
a chance to loarn row to make a few
dollar- and take care of them. Thoy
should bo taught never to go in debt.
Girls should have a chance to learn bow
to cook, to cut and make garmonlS, to
set the table and arrange the dining
room like an artist, to give out and su
perintend tho rooking of meals. They
should also he taught the use of money.
Those suggestions apply to the children
of factory people as well as to those of
mill presidents. There are intelligent
women in this city who could not pre
pare a simple meal if they were turned
loose in a well equipped kitchen and
pantry. They know nothing of cook
ing. It is a most pitiable condition for
a young woman to start out in life too
poor to hire her work done and not
trained to do It herself. There are sev
eral homes in this city where the family
would go without breakfast and dinner,
too, if It depended on the male mem
bers to cut and split the stove wood and
the females to cook the food. Such a
condition should not exist. It arises,
no doubl, in part from the fact that the
parents in former days bought candy
ai d : tore lunches for their children and
gratified every wish the children ex
pressed, (living way to children, spoil
ing them, buying for thom things not
needed, never training thom u> work,
tends to make weaklings of thom, or
what 18 worse it finally lands them In
the criminal class. Carolina Spartan.
It is a very serious matter to aslc
for one medicine and have tho
wrong one given you. For this
reason we urge you in buying
to be careful to get the genuine?
The reputation of this old, relia
ble medicine, for constipation, in
digestion and liver trouble, is firm
ly established. It does not imitate
other medicines. It is better than
others, or it would not be the fa
vorite liver powder, with a larger
??lo than all others combined.
