Tea Came to Be?
?J First a price was fixed, below which no
really GOOD tea can be sold.
CJ Next, all teas selling at this price were cupped and
tested for quality.
<] Finally, a blend was perfected, at least 25 per cent better than
the best of these tested teas, and the result was called
to match the superb coflee by that name.

HUMAN WOULDN'T SAY IT
HE COULDN'T SAY IT
There Is cold comfort for Governor
Blease and hi? friends in the state
ment from Senator TUlman published
yesterday, cold comfort Indeed. Mr.
Tlllman's opinion of Judge Jones Is a
matter of record. "I believe he would
make a good governor," he BP.id, "for
he Is eminently qualified." Ho gives
his belief and the basis for it. Will he
say as much for Governor Blease? He
will not. Urged to do so by the gov
ernor's friends, "bombarded" by thern
"with telegrams and letters," to quote
hlB own words, what Is his response?
A column statement in which he point
edly omits to say one word in the
slightest degree commendatory of Gov
ernor Bleuse and his administration,
but Instead expresses his deep mortifi
cation for South Carolina that "instead
of our candidates discussing great pub
lic questions and teaching the people,
the meetings have been little else than
vulgar quarrelling matches, In which
blackguardism, vulgarity, obscenity
and abuse, almost without limit, and
all manner of filthy speeches have
been allowed to predominate." The
description of the tenor of the cam
paign meetings is a true one, vigorous
ly put, yet not overdrawn. But who Is
responsible? Not Judge Jones, certain
ly. Has Judge Jones at any time been
guilty of vulgarity? Has he ever been
obscene? Has he uttered one Illthy sen
tence, to say nothing of a filthy
[speech? Senator Tlllman knows that
he has not. What says the Senator?
"He would make a good governor, for
he Is eminently qualified." Will Sen
ator Tlllman say that about Governor
Blease after Blease's record of the I
last two years and after his speeches j
and writings during the present cam
paign? No. He has not done so. Ho
cannot do so. It Is not true.?News &

Columbia, S. C, Aug. 8?Samuel F.

had forbidden the use of his name in
tho columns of a newspaper, has been
suspended for 30 days. The charges

'Signed J. P. Caldwell,
When the Trouble lb-nan.
The trouble ending in the suspension
of Massey bad its beginning when
Major Richardson, chairman of the
board of commissioners and a salaried
officer, appointee of Gov. Blease, told
Edward J. ..'ones, a Confederate vet
eran, but not an Inmate of the Sol
diers' home, that he could not hold
his job as hospital steward at the
home, if he did not bestir himself
in behalf of Rlease. Massey heard
of the threat, and understood that it
applied to all employes whether in
mates of the home or not, and so re
ported it. Later, Maj. Richardson,
in a talk at the home, denied that he
referred to all employes.
Mr. Massey was not then allowed
a hearing, and made a statement In
the newspapers. He did not regard
Maj. Richardson's admonition not to
use his name, and his suspension is the
Massey's Record as Veteran.
Mr. Massey was a member of Co.
A. Second battalion, cavalry, under
Capt. Jas. P. Adams of this county.
He was afterwards in Co. IL, Fourth
South Carolina cavalry, commanded
by Col. Rutledge, and was under
Capt. J. C. Foster. He was wounded
at Trevillion station but went through
the battle anyhow. He Ib from Lan
