The Meanest Man.
The meanest man on life's highways
Is not the man who's bent
On making loans for thirty days
At ten or twelve per cent.
He's not the man who wore his brain
Into a frazzled wreck
To mP.k > a button of a wart
That grew upon his neck.
He's not the man who saved his heels
By walking on his toes.
He's not the man who saved bis teeth
By talking through his nose.
The meanest man Is not the one
WhOSO greed insatiate
Caused him to climb tin1 fence to save
The hinges on the gate.
Tin? meanest man on earth today
Is not the man who totes
A quart of shoepegs to his horse
And palms them off for oats.
Nay, all these men tue gentlemen
Of wondrous heart, and kind.
Compared to him who is so mean
He always whips behind.
God bless the man who's kind enough
To Just look straight ahead.
And never growls because a kid
Hooks on a little sled.
May health be his, and length of
And may he fortune And
For nothing Is too good for him
Who never whips behind.
Anderson.?Webb Simmons, a young
mill operative, was found guilty of the
murder of I'nlted States Deputy Me
Adains and was recommended to the
mercy of the court. Attorney Dagnall
will argue a motion for n new trial.
Simmons killed MoAdnms In Feb
ruary. 1908, and was sentenced to
hang last July. A now trial was se
cured on the ground that a member
of the Jury had expressed his opinion
on the killing.

(Dr. The*. F. Jonen, Native of Lanca
\fter an illnesr. of about *even
weeks. Dr. Thus. F. .Tones, a traveling
representative for a Boston concern
with headquarters at Columbia, died
at bis boarding house in this city hist
Thursday night. Friday afternoon, Ike
.W<tt? buried in the city cemetery, the
Rt.'v.iC. 1*. Parker, rector of the Churtit
of the Epiphany, officiating.
Shortly after bis arrival in Laurent
some weeks ago Dr. Jones fell ill with
inflamatory rheumatism, and gradually
grew worse until the end came Thurs
day night. Mr. and Mrs. Ham Moore,
with vi ho in he was stoppitrg, gave him
every attention possible. With the as
sistance ;pf friends and :neig4ibors, and
several of the local physicians saw him
* on* I;;,i. to time.
Very little was known liefe about
.the life -of the deceased. Jie was 62
years of age and said that he was a
illative of Laaicasbire, England, and be.
fore coming to this country \Z years
ago. had lived for some time in East
India wIipw h? held a high position in
the judicial department for a wjijle.
Those who knew him say that lie was
a ?man .of (One intellect ajid culture, H
seems that he had separated from his
family, consisting of a wife and si*
children. According to Jones his wife
now resides at Key West, Fla., with her
sister, but efforts to communicate with
her thefore the death of her husband
proved futile. As to bis children's
whereabouts, the deceased, if he knew,
continued silent until the end.
His means were meagre, but though
the efforts of local members of the
order, the T. P. A. association of which
the deceased was a member, sent a do
nation from Columbia for bis benefit.
This however, did not suffice to cover
all expenses, and upon his death the
city took charge and had his body giv
en a decent burial.
