Yes, if those old stiffs in Washing

we hadn't had the pleasure cither of
seeing these remarks of 1which The

have time to keep track of the Con
gressional IRecord, the New York pa
'eirs and other big sheets to see when
they take some valuable remarks from
our collumns for the editiation of their

been something pretty good, possgibly

V NAR OF TIll ILAV
What is neieded more inl South Caro
lina and the nation as well is not so
much "respect" as fear for the law.
The word "respect,"i as applied to luw
en forceemen t, is generally in ders-tood
to convey an. idea of cooperation and
voluiltary acuiesCeice whereas the
elliciency of the law is found in its
enforcement upon those who refuse
to abide by it.
The law is nothing more than a writ
ten obligt1ation o1 a majority of the
;cop !(t zo 1):otect itself against those
of a miloritty oplilion onl anly given
poilit. The, law may he just or unjust,
according as tie majority m view it,
:biut it is a val id contract. of a griou p
to ca rry out, (Pertain in gs. Anyv v id
laltion o (f it. by any of the mlajotity3 is
a breach of contrtact. A violsition by
the mlinlority against whom it was
originally framed is a flaiuit in the

No corn, hard or soft, is too old or
too dee)ly rooted to re.sist "Gets-It".
Immediately it dries and shrivels, the
edges loosen from the true flesh and
soon you van peel it right off with
your lingers as painlessly as you trim
your nails.
Don't coddle corn pests. Don't nurse
and pamper them. Don't cut and trim
them. RIEMOWIP) them with "G0'YTS
