TUE TURKO-GREOIA1 WAto
We deprecate war and with St. Paul
would prefer, if possible, to live in
peace, because, as General Sherman
says, "war is hell." There is no doubt
of that. It is a self-evident proposi
tion and it has broken loose between
the Turk and the Christian-the cres
cent and the cross-and it is the wish
of the followers of Mahomet to wipe
the followers of the Prince of Peace
from off the earth.
It did seem, until recently, that pa
triotism had "played" and was passing
along with hero worship. But the
spirit of Leonidas has returned to the
Pass of Thermopylae-this time against
Islam, and the splendid valor of Mara
thon again displayed in the rout of the
Turkish invader. It is well that Tur
key is the aggressor! There has been
a presentiment among the Turks and
long since passed into a legend, to the
effect that since they cut their bloody
pathway into the heart of Europe the
time would come when they would
"leave their imosques ar d minarets and
flee the Bosphorus and the Golden
Horn." Is that hour approaching?
The Truk might have remained in
Europe unmolested had he not persist
ently carried out his creed of extirmin
ating the Christian "dog!"
But for Turkish bonds placed in Eu
rope, and the jealous rivalries of the
so-called leading Christian nations, the
deplorable and unblushing spectacle of
"thrones and presses" and combined
navies coercing Greece, might, never
have been witnessed. But it has gone
into history, and, with it the fact, that
Greece, the smallest kingdom, is to all
intents and purposes, at present the
only leading Christian nation in Eu
The sophistry of those who declared
that Intervention for peace might pre
eipitate greater trouble, is disproved
by the quiet but determined action of
England's great premier, Mr. Glad
stone, in 1880, when with hell) of the
then Czar of lussia, Turkey was forced
to disgorge some of her stolen terri
tory without war. General Grant V
said that there was never a war that
might not have been averted and ended
some other way.
The war is on, however. and none
can really tell whether it shall be of
long or short duration. The power are
in some measure ctnfounded by their
own vacillation. and it i not iimpoQ-i
ble that entangling ditfluities might
arise to bring abou t a con iagration of
war. There are many (ue.-t1onjs in
volved in what is known as the Eatern
Queztion-'t is a grand tangle-and the
present trouble may lead to an at
tempted unwinding with far-reaching
There is one pha-!e of the! question
involving posSible contingenci.:s of in
terest to us andthat is our productions.
In the event of war Europe will make
very large drafts upon us for food sup
plies. England is never more than two
weeks ahead of want and the seasons
and crops are not altogether reliable.
It is well to consider these things. A
European war will produce a large de
mand fo)r bread and meat and not for
cotton. And the food lost on the forty
thousand farms of the inundated see
tions of the wvest together with a
million bushels of grain burned at Clhi
cago, help to lessen the year's supply.
Let us plant largely of corn.
Our cotemporary, the Observer, is
right In desiring the sidlewalks for pe
destrians. There is now an ordinance
against riding on the sidewalk within
certain limits, but during the had
weather it was understood that this
ordinance would not be strictly and
literally enforced. As we said we be
lieve the Observer is right and the
sidewalks should be reserved for those
-who walk and wheels should keep in
the middle of the road. The ordinance
requiring this should be adopted. The
roads are good now, and when they are
as good and solid as the sidewalk
'wheelmen will use the sidewalk.
The Herald and News extends con
gratulations to our friend, WV. W. Ball.
We hope to have him and his bride at
the meeting of the Association the lat

THE MARE SALLY.
Case of the Governor Against Mr. B. B.
[The Stato, 22d.]
The Sunday school story of how the
wise King Solomon determined the
true i-)ther of a child to which two
women laid claim is to be duplicated in
the circuit court today. Governor El
lerbo and Major B. B. Evans will take
the pl)ace of the two disputing women
of the Bible story and instead of claim
ing the ownership of a baby they will
cach claim to be the rightful and only
owner of a sorrel mare whose gentle
appellation is Sally. The jndgo and
jury will not pat an end to the case in
the brief manner of Solomon by order
ing that the mare be cut into two equal
pieces, one to be given to Mr. Evans
and the other to Gov. Ellerbe. They
will instead go through all the legal
The mare, it is claimed by Mr. Ev
ans, was bet him against $5 by Govern
or Ellerbo that he would carry Ander
son county in 1894 against Mr. John
Gary 1,vans, his then opponent. The
bet was accepted and the result is now
known. Anderson went for Mr. Evans.
Governor 1Ilci-bo then gave the mare
to Mr. B. 13. Evans, so he clainm, in
payment of the bet.
Governor Ellerbe, on the contrary,
says that never in his life has lie made
a bet. lie only loaned the mare to Mr.
Evans to drive and that since he has
come to Columbia he asked to get her 1
back. This being refused he has
brougnt this suit against, Mr. +vans to
gain possession of what lie deems his

A Few More Chips for Kay.
Shoot Luke or give up) your gun. I
know that this old saying has gone the
round; you have all heard it many a
time. Now, after a long sight, Luke
has shot, and lie thinks that lie has
killed the bird, and says that lie is
willing to give tip his gun. No, Luke,
the bird is not dead you keel) your guii,
yeu may need it agalin.
I have often wished for the time to
comie whein me and my old friend Kay's
troubles were done. Hie's got a big
mind, and would have a big sway, pro
v'ided that I wvould give him his way.
lIut you must remember, my dear' old
friend, I'im one of those boys from
around( the bend. I never do kick
until i'm spurred'C(, then~ I let 'cum fly and it
doesn't. matter' how high.
Well, Kay, you say that Chips jump1)
ed1 on you while you were gonie to At
lanta and1( seemed to tinmk that it is not
fare to jumpl on a1 mian in his absenice.
Nowv, is it possible that you are trying
to hold Chlips reCsponsible for' your'
groat big prmoimnading in Nort,h ('aro
lina, Greenville, Atlanta, and gr'acious
knows hew nmnty other places.
No sir, when Ch ips goes to wriite a
letter' it's net his business to inquire if
Kay is at homo. It seems that I am
forced to have a little more to say
about that dlispednsary matter as you
have set me up before the public as an
old liquor and dlruniken advocate.
I want to say to the good people of
Prosperity for whom I have always held
the highest regard, and a pl)ell who
have always been my friends. I am net
advocating a liquor 81hop in your town
as5 yourl honorable Kay would have it
appear, and God forbid that I should
ever' become so meddlesome into prli
vate business of any kind. No, sir,
Kay, Chips wouldn't give the snap of
his inger whether your town has a die
penisar'y or not. I am only advocating
an obser'vancc of tihe laws of our land,
and if you want to live up to the diuno21
laws, Kay, you must obey the law of
I am not discussing the old barroom
system at all. I am discussing the
question that it is better to sell whis
key according to law than to sell it, be
hind the law.
I said that your town is and always
would be supplied with whiskey in
some way or' othei'. and I think that I
can substantiate the fact.
My dear' old boy, whether I am de
voted to my church or net don't mis
ropresent me. I am only advocating
the sale of whiskey in A legitimate
manner. I think it is getting time for
us to quit making a public display of
our religion, for God knows neither one
has more than he needs.
What is the matter with you, old
boy, were you in a trance or just talking
in your sleep when you say that Chips
Is advocating the sale of whiskey and
Jenying your ttgers. You may call
them tigers, lepers, panters, hyonas or
lust anything that comes handy, but I
tell you, my old friend, they are there
ind it to no use of trying to rub the
ract out. Where were you when Con
itable Gardner came down to Prosperi
ly about five weeks ago and arrested
Roda Chapman and Bunk Adams for
tiolating the dispensary law. You
nust have been up in North Carolina
ooking at Sal dancing with the man

iext time you go off on one of those big
Prips, old bud, you got some one to
ceep note for you so you will not make
iuch great mistakes when you come
1emo to write about Chips. I reckon
rou remember that Leo Aikin is serv

fang at this time for selling whiskey
t Prosperity. Now, old bud, I am
>pposed to this illicit traille of whiskey
mnd this Is why I told you that it was
letter to have a dispensary than a
