mr. John L. ILerwis Is about the finest
o(l eanioullageulr we know of. "We
can't fight otir governinent," he ex
elainis with miagniticent stage effect
and then leaves the nation throttled
and hound abollt as tight as it could
The 1la-Nist denomination Is to be
coligra tu laIted ilon the magnificent
record it is m1lahing in raising $75,
000,0tilt for lnevolent n'nd education
al pIrl-poses. We have not seenl a re
port of the entire campaign, hut it
appears that South Carolina Baptists
sibscribed more than their quota the
first day. With such spirit and wIth
such funds the denomination cannot
fail to go forward.
Closing of stores yesterday at. folir
o'clock in the afternoon by order of
the governllent brought forcibly to
the front the seriousness of the coal
situation in the nation. Already the
city's largest enterprise, on which a
thousand people are dependent for a
livelihood. had closed for several days
with he probability of closing in
definitely today. The situation, grow
ing worse every day, is about .the
same all over the nation 'with the
promise of resilts being more serious
in thie cold mianufacturi'n'g districts of
the North and East. The 'end of the
great. var, fought for the safety and
happiness of the nation, finds instead
a selfish and tiendish struggle for
more pay aid less labor on the one
side and ilore profits on tile other, all
caleilated to prove aidl may yet prove
S disastrous as war itself.

ARE YOU WORKING
Advertiser's Puzzle Contest Appeals
to Young and Old in Every Walk
Although but two weeks have passed
sinco The Advertiser announced its
big Puzzle Contest, it is evident that,
a whole raft of people are interested
in the wonderfull chart and ti, kt count
ing and still other countings are go
ing on while results of the countings
are coming in to The Advertiser of
lice. Already a large number of con
testants have entered answers to the
puzzle and some of them, after a sec
ond and third counting, have sent in
subsequent answers going to show
that the puzzle is not near as easy as
it looks to be from a glance. As a
matter of fact, the wide variety in the
answers indieates the difficulty of hit
tlug the nimber "just right."
Systemt? Dlid you say systel? y
lry imaginable system is being used
to arrive at the correct number of the
ellsive little circles. Some are so
sitre of their systems that they have
sent inl but, one answer with the limit
of $3.00 paid on subscript lions, play
ing for the biggest. prize, while others
not so sItre are sending the results of
,ludging from tie number of new
subscriptions being received where
names anId addresses are very similar
to those already o the list, we fear
that some of-the Contestanllt have not
read the rules careftIly about renew
alis and l( new subseripitons. Ilovisionl
is made ill the rulI es for a member of
a family where the paper is already
being aken, to enter the contest and
have tile subscription applied to the
old subscriber. Those who have mis
understood this part of the Contest
and have sent in new subscriptions
when they would rather have had tie
money applied on an old subseription
may have tile change made by writing
to the luzzle Malanager.
We hear of qIutite a few men who say
that they are working on the puzzle
just for the diversion. That siows
how appealing the contest is, but the
object of tile cotlest priicipaily is to
afford a pleasant tiethod of paying
subscr iptions before the advance in
price on .Janluary Ist. The I'uzzle
Manager does not objec; to affording
diversioln to trvaders of tile paper and
is aflad to be able to do so. but he is
principally interested ill tile sulwerip
tions. So, wietre on1 of these diverted
hitsiness mn hIs solved ihi' pyzzle
according to his taste he may divert
himself still further anld arcept the
opport tiliy of 'winnitng a valuable
( sh prize by ret 11rn' ilg:- i his cotunlt with
