When tho Hev. Blraer V. Huffuer, Just
resigned qs pastor of the First Chris
tian church, delivered a sermon re
cently advooatlng the exile of old
maids to a barren Island as waste hu
manity, he anticipated local resent

find himself at Issue with Miss Helen

(Jould's letter follows:
Defends Old Maids.
"Glancing, over a Denver paper. I
notice an Item concerning your ser
mon on 'Love, Courtship and Mar
riage/ one part of which I especially
notice you saying that old bachelors
and bachelor maids should be isolated
on an Island so they could not hinder
the progress of civilization. I do not
know why you made this statement,
but I feel that It Is a great Injustice
to the bachelor mulds of our country.
There are, I admit, many man-haters
In the world, but a great many bach
elor maids are not living alone be
cause they so choose, but because they
have been unable to find a suitable

"I must admit that 1 am speaking
from the standpoint of the bachelor
maid. I feel that such persons as
myself are not hindering the progress
of civilization, but advancing it. If
I had found a suitable helpmate, I
might have spent my money in a dif
ferent way, and for a reason which
might, not have done as much good
as It bus.
"Please think this question over
and before preaching on this subject
again, make up your mind that there
Is some good in living a single life."

.M A YOU GRACE REPLIES
TO GOVERNOR BLEA8E
(Continued from Page Nine.)
Homcwli.it equivocally however, that
he would not put any constables in
Charleston. Listening between the
lines of his speech, however, there
were those present who discerned a
false note, and an they were men very
much Interested In the situation, they
held an Impromptu caucus and came
to me and advised me to have it out
with the governor there and then.
"We adjourned t?. the reception
room of the German Artillery Hall, I
about fifteen of us, including men of
unimpeachable veracity. I might say
that I put Please through the third
degree. He shifted and apologized
and finally began to assume the posi
tion that It would be better for us if
we did have constables in Charleston;
that there might not be so much talk
about It through the state, that they
needn't do anything specially, but they
would come down and make a show
ing. We told Iiiin that we didn't want
them, that If they came here to in
vade our homes and rigidly to do their
duty we certainly didn't want them,
and that If they came here for any
other purpose their presence would
be Indefensible. He then suggested
that he would send men who would
be acceptable to us. This also was re
jected. He then turned personally to
Mr. Roessler and said:
" 'Why Louis, you take It.'
"Of course he knew this would be
instantly refused and that broke up
the meeting. The gentlemen present
thought that the jig was up, but they
asked me to make one further effort,
to take him to the hotel, and try again.
And at about half-past 2 o'clock In
the morning, we got him into an auto
mobile and drove him to the hotel',
where I left him, and his last words
were that he would not do anything
In the matter without my approval,
and that for the present, would do
nothing at all. The next day I heard
that he and Mr. FWnum and Mr.
Stothart had had a conference and
that Stothart had been appointed. I
went to the hotel and found that he
had gone and that night rang him up
over the long-distance 'phone and
asked him what was the news, telling
him what I had heard. Relng separat
ed by K12 miles, he grew very frank
and told me that he had appointed
Stothart as chief State detective, not
as consthle. and that he would not op
erate In Charleston and that he had
done it Just to give him a job. I told
him thai if he carried that out I would
bo very happy, that my flght was not
against Stothart or any other man,
hut against constables.
".Mr, Roessler had asked mo to
'phone him at the Schuetzenplatz as
soon as I got In touch with the gov
ernor. I reported to him what Please
had said, and ho informed me after
wards that he at once communicated
it to his friends. In a few days after
that Stothart and several other con
stables visited the blind tigers of
Charleston and I was at once informed
that they were not here for the pur
pose of raiding, but of collecting mon
ey. That they collected it is now be
yond dispute. I estimate that In the
last eighteen months Stothart has col
lected ahout sixty thousand dollars. If
he has kept it all, he is a very rich
man and he can at once disprove that
he was transmitted it to Please by
showing his bank book. When he got
the Job, he was not only poor, but
as the records will show, his house
was mortgaged for a comparatively
small amount. He had no other
property. It ought to be very easy for
him to show that he did not give this
money to Please by showing that he
has kept it himself. Hither one thing
or the other is certain."

"The Man That Divides the Earth to Suit Your Purse."
"TheBest Policy onEarth"
A Letter from a Fortunate Holder of an "Elective Policy"
Containing the Disability Clause:
Greenwood, S. C, October 24th, 1911.
Southeastern Life Insurance Company,
Greenville, S. C.
Gentlemen:?I wish to thank you for the prompt manner in which
you placed into effect the Disability Clause in policy No. 2026 held
by my btother, Mr. Chas. a. Cobb, of Abbeville, S. C.
Some time ago he was paralized, and although not confined to
his bed, is totally, and I fear, permanently disabled, and in no condi
tion now financially, to keep up his insurance, one premium being due
in the next few days.
Under this Disability Clause you have agreed to pay his premiums
while the disability lasts, and his family is protected for the full
amount of the Policy, $5,000.00, without further payment of premi
ums on his part.
I cannot speak too highly of your Company, and of this splendid
feature of your Elective Policies. I congratulate you on the great
progress you are making, and do not wonder that you are gaining the
confidence and patronage of such a host of our people.
Again thanking you, and with best wishes, I am,
Very truly yours,
(Signed) F. B. COBB.
