A FEW WORDS FROM MR LATIMER.
Senator McLaurln'd Successor Receiving
Hearty Congratulations from all
His Town Folk.
Anderson, September 11.-Sena
tor A. C. Latimer-they have com
menced calling him Senator Latimer
now-spent yesterday in the city.
He was kept busy during the day
shaking hands with his friends and
receiving their congratulations on
the outcome of the election. The
congratulations came with hearty
sincerity from all classes and Mr.
Latimer was naturally in a very
jovial frame-of mind.
He was seen by this correspondent
in the afternoon and asked for an in
terview on the result of the election.
"Isn't it rather early for me to talk ?"
he asked in reply. "I expect it
would be better for me to wait until
the result has been officially declared.
"However there seems to be no
doubt as to my election and I will
say just this: Of course I am grati
fied at the result of the ele'ction, and
especially so under the circumstances.
I went into the campaign absolutely
without any organization throughout
the State and.made the race solely
by appealing to the people on my
platform and my record. I did not
go into trades or combinations and
was not the candidate of any class or
faction. I made a clean, straight
ampaign, spent no more moigy than
was absolutely necessary for legiti
mate expenses and have won the
ight with just as clean hands as I
started with. Of course I am grati
fied with the result more than I can
"In my opinion the election means,
if it means anything, the condemna
tion by the people of the State of
unfair and unwholesome campaign
methods. It means that the people
of the State will stand by a man who
comes before them with a clean, clear
record and uses open, fair methods
in seeking office.
"I want- to thank the people of
Anderson County and of the old 3d
district, and of the entire State, for
the splendid vote they gave me and
I hope I may prove worthy of their
confidence. This, I believe, is all I
care to say at present."
To the State Fair is due the great
improvement of live stock in the
State, and to further the improve
ment it is hoped an exhibition of im
proved breeds of combination cattle
will induce our people to breed for
beef as well as nmilk and butter.

A Newberrian Writes of this Noble Institu
tion and the Beautiful City of Homes.
Mr. Editor: After our summer out
ir.g, spent amidst the lovely scenes
and health-giving water of Eupeptic
Sulphur Springs, North Carolina,
we are resting in this beautiful city
of homes, and it may interest some
friends of Elizabeth College to learn
of' its present prospects and appoint
ments for the well being of its stu
dent body. This fine institution of
learning is situated out of the town
proper, but reached by electric car
line soon to be completed, and on a
commanding emminence giving a
beautiful view of Charlotte and sur
rounding country: This college is
complete in its appointments for the
health and comfort of its student
body. The bed rooms are large and
furnished with oak setts, iron beds
two in a room, chairs, tables, etc.,
and are heated by steam and car
peted with art squares, bath rooms
in plenty with toilet separate. The
culinary department is most excellent
in detail. Steel ranges line one side
of the large kitchen and pipes con
vey all odors from the building, coal
storage and an old fashioned brick
bake oven for baking breads are
added to this important part of do
mestic economy. The dining hall is
in good taste, well lighted, furnished
with China closets and sects at tables
over one hundred. The laundry on
first floor is well arrangad and all
modern ideas fully carried out in this
department. But the crowning glory
of Elizabeth College is her conserva
tory of music-a building especially
set apart for the study of music.
Here are twenty Stieff pianos, one in
each studio, so each student has time
and quiet for practice; also a studio
for violin practice, and all that a
lover of music seeks may here be
found. A director of music who
studied his art in the great cities of
the old world, and a corps of as
sistant teachers whose fame is heard
utside the physical boundaries of
several States. The chapel has a
grand organ and two pianos, with
seating capacity for a great number,
and the opening day, 19th of Sep
tember, will see this fine auditorium
flled with girls from every section of
our country, and we trust that it may
be a continued success and are sure
that the Lutherans of South Caro
lina will never forget their obligation
to sustain this college for their girls
as well as they have that of Newberry
College for their boys. To its coar
teous president, Dr. King, we are in
debted for the pleasure of driving
over to view its many attractions, and
we trust that untiring devotion-zeal
in the welfare of this institution and
that of his student body will bring
to him a full measure of success in
th near future as in the past.
Charlotte is certainly a city of
homes. Nowhere have we seen so
many lovely homes, beautiful green
lawns and well cultivated flower yards
and magnificent trees. The grass
here is so green and rich, the flowers
so bright and shade so inviting that
it rests the eyes and charms the
senses of one accustomed to gaze on
the grand Carnigie library dome and
adjacent magnificent churches on
Tr'on- street. The First Presbyte
rian church has a membership of six
hundred and covers a whole block in
its territory. The Lutherans have
also a handsome church, while the
Methodists are justly proud of their
five churches, and the fact also that
Bishop Coke Smith will live, here and
arragemets are now made for him.
He will oeenpy a bandsome home on
East Avenue, and we feel certain he
will be delighted wit.h. his new home
and people here.

Please allow me just a little space
in your columns for a short card.
As it is practically impossible for me
to write a personal letter to all my
friends andsupporters throughout the
State, I adopt this method of thank
ing them for the handsome vote and
loyal support given me in my recent
race for Governor. I am indeed
deeply grateful to them and appre
ciate my friends and supporters as
much as a man possibly could. I
have been defeated, but do not pro
pose to be a sorehead and sulk in
my tent nor complain at the result
of this election. The people have
spoken and I accept the situation,
and I am perfectly willing to abide
by the result and support, heartily,
the nominees of the party from
Governor down. When my success
ful opponent, Captain Heyward, shall
have taken his seat as Governor, I
stand ready to hold up his hands in
any effort he may make, or any en
terprise he may undertake for the
good of the pe'ple and of the State.
My ardor for the welfare and best
interests of old South Carolina and
her people is not lessened one iota
by my defeat, and I desire to say to
those who saw fit to support my
opponent that I do not feel in any
degree unkindly towards you at all
and have no criticisms whatever to
make. I tried to conduct my cam
paign fairly, squarely and upon a
high plane. I have tried to be open,
frank and honest on all questions
that came before us, and having
worked to this end, I have nothing to
retract and nothing to.apologize for,
and can't see but I would conduct it
just the same if I had it to do over
again. But tbere's no time to look
backwards. Thbe people of the State
have rendered their decision, and I
bemng a loyal and true Democrat,
am willing to abide thereby, and
will say in conclusion, lat nis stand
behind Captain Heyward and help
him to be one of the best Governors
South Carolina has ever had, and be

Soakes to the Unoited Stat's.
There are four kinds of venomous
serpents in the United States-the
rattle snake proper, the copperhead
and the moccasin, the coral snakes
and*the ground rattlesnake. The
former is undoubtedly the cause of
more deaths from snake poisoning
than any other in the United States.
This is due to its large size-it grows
not infrequently to seven feet in
length and three inches in diam
eter-and to the great length of its
fangs and the copious amount of
venom it injects into wounds. Prob
ably not more than 50 persons die of
snake bite in the United States in
any year. Perhaps 30,000 would
be a fair estimate of the wqrld's an
nual death rate from the bite of ye
nomus snakes, notwithstanding the
long and practically fruitless ef
