FOUND DEAD SATURDAY
Body Found Neur ltailroad Tracks in
Samt er. Well-known Citizen, From
Ineiit in Fight for Prohibition In
Sumter. February 8.?The peoplo r'
Sumter were shocked and saddened1
this morning to hear of the finding
of the dead body of Mr. Joel E. Brun- j
son alongsldo the railroad track, near
New Sumter, a station on the Atlantic
Coast Line Railroad, about five miles
from Sumter, where he bad dropped
when returning from bis farm to that
place to take the train home.
Mr. Brunson was a well known and
highly esteemed citizen of this city
and was well known throughout the
state because of bis fight against the
liquor traffic. Ho ran for governor of
the state twice, the second time In
1H0G on the prohibition ticket. He was
also publisher and editor of the Broad
Axe, the official organ of the Prohi
bition party in South Carolina, for a
number of years, in which be contin
ued his fight for prohibition.
Mr. Brunson left home with bis
Wife this morning on an early morn
ing train. He got off at New Sumter
to go to his farm, several miles fur
ther on. while bis wife went on to
Mayesville to spend the day with Iiis
daughter. When returning from his
farm, where some work was going
on, ho dropped dead by the railroad
track, a quarter of a mile from New
Sumter. It was stated that members
of the family had tried to dissuade
him from this trip, but he said he was
compelled to go, as ho had not been
out to see about the work In several
days. His body was found by an old
negro, Hen Franklin, who summoned
some white neighbors. The Atlan
tic Coast liine train to Sumter cnino

ged and the body put on it to be
There were only two witnesses nt
the inquest, Dr. Mood, who examined
the body, and pronounced death to be
due to natural causci . probably from
apoplexy, and Hen Franklin, who had
discovered the body. The jury re
turned a verdict In accordance with
the testimony of Dr. Mood.
The deceased started out in life as
a printer In the old Watchman and
Southron printing office. This was
during the war, in which be was too
young to serve actively in the field,
although he was a member of the re
serves and ready to serve at home at
any time. Later he entered Into the
lumber business. In which he was in
terested up to the time of his death.
He was also interested for the past
few years in farming, although he
sold his farm between here and Mayes
ville some time ago.

The Rat as a Source of Economic and
Modern industry seeks to economize
cost through tho scientific and prac
tical study of efficiency methods. This
economy is sought by Improved pro
Jesses and machinery, by tho elimina
tion of useless handling and waste
motion In the performance of routine
work, and In other ways. In many lines
of business even a superficial observa
tion of the routine of production or
distribution at once reveals enormous
waste of effort. Preventive medicine
is the application of the efficiency Idea
to health matters. As In the Indus
tries, a little study reveals obvious and
useless waste, not only on tho eco
nomic side, but also In the way of the
less tangible but more important
things?physical pain, discomfort, ir.i
happincss? which make for lessened
enjoyment of health and life. Those
art fundamental things, tho avoidance
of Which inspires all industrial effort. I
Two sources of economic and heal;;-,
waste are tho rat and the fly. .lust at
present the rat is foremost as a prob
lem In preventive medicine on ac
count of its connection with tho
threatened entrance of plague Into our
country, and therein lies one of the
shortcomings of our health.efficiency
system. The discovery of plague in a
neighboring island at once sets in
motion the rather clumsy machinery
Of our health service, local and na
tional, and at an enormous waste of
time, money .and effort seek to catch,
examine and then kill all tho rates on
2.000 miles of coast-line to hoop out
one disease. It is necessary, of course,
and/must bo done. Put how much bet
tor it would he to have no rats! It
has long boon known that rates are a
source of tromondous economic wnste.
not only In seaboard cities aboul
docks and wharfs, but in eery por
tion of the land. Figures are some
times given of the amount of this
waste, which mounts Into the million i
but oven those figures are only guesses j
and probable far short of tho truth.
The principle of modern ofllcloncjy
would at once demand that no rates
should bo tolerated; that, in tho first
place, this enormous economic waste
and danger to health should be pro
vented by swatting tho rat, clubbing
him, trapping him, poisoning him, as
phyxiating him?exterminating .him?
wherever and Whenever he raises his
pestiferous head. It should not be left
to tho now handicapped health organ,
izatlons of cities and towns and the
nation to do this work. Tho work
should bo done by the individual
property-owner or occupier, who now
