It scens that Sheriff Martin has
perpetrated a nice. little joke on the
Charleston blind tigers, at the diree
tion of the governor, and that the
Curtain has been rung down until
time for another gran(-stand play.
It strikes us that this muchly agi
tated <Iuestion of the removal of
Clicora College had brought out
the need for a censorship like
that of ithe warring nations in
,Europe. lleports from the different
headtIuar-te's are coiflicting and at
