One Fare For the Round Trip Al?
lowed Ali Teachers.
State Superintendent of Education
V McMahan has issued the following :
"The Southern Passenger Associa?
tion has granted the one fare round
trip railroad rate asked for the State
summer school and the State teachers'
association, both to meet at Rock Hill.
In each case the tickets will be sold
frorii all points within the State, in?
cluding Augusta, Ga.
"The teachers will be glad to know
that they will not be subjected to the
inconveniences of depositing their
tickets for extension, as was required
last year. Chairman Richardson
writes : * Please note that tickets will
be sold June 24, 25 and 26, limited to
return July 25, 1902, without deposit.'
The school begins work on the morn
^ ing of the 25th of June and closes the
evening of the 23d of July.
"For the teachers' association the
tickets will be sold July 14 and 15,
with final limit July 19, 1902. The
association will be in session the even?
ing of the 15th and the day and even
lng of the 16th. Other smaller associa
tiens will meet on the 17th. It is
""hoped that many members of school
and college boards, and others with
sufficient interest, will take advan?
tage of the reduced rates during this
week to attend the State teachers' as?
sociation and remain over for several
days, to visit the school and see it at
HISTORY AT SUMMER SCHOOL.
"The following are the announce?
ments of the history courses in the
State summer school ; they are design?
ed to be of the greatest practical bene?
fit to our teachers! I have been for a
long time on the lookout for some one
who can give our teachers anecdotes
of South Carolina that can be told to
small children so as to instruct and
interest them in the great men of the
State. I found that Mrs. Means, of
Spartanburg is writing a book along
that line. Hence her course in the
school this year."
History, Prof. Davis-Two courses
will be offered.
L History of the United States.-A
course in the history of the United
States, beginning with the formation
of the union, and tracing its political
and constitutional growth. Special
attention will be given to critical
epochs, such as the alien and sedition
laws ; the rise of republicanism ; the
war of 1312; early tariffs and nullifi?
cation: the administration of Jack?
son; the Mexican war; abolition and
the struggle for the territories ; seces
^sion, war, and reconstruction; the
struggle over expansion.
The narrative contained in ordinary
text-books will be amplified and ex
? ^ plained by reference to underlying
cases and political and social issues.
L The object of the course being to
assist teachers in presenting the sub-.
iect to their classes, the text-book
used will be that prescribed for tue
^ public schools, Lee's New School His
' tory of. the Ignited States (B. F. John?
son Publishing company, Richmond,
Ta. ) Each member of the class must
have a copy of this book, and is ad?

."vthe. period of reconstruction, the cam?
paign of 1876 and the rehabilitation

RIDE THE CHEAPEST FOOD.
Provides Five Times the Food Ma?
terial as tho Same Value Ex?
pended for Beef.
As the "marketing" is now the
burning question with every house?
keeper, the following statements are
worthy of the consideration. The rice
committee connected with the Rice
Kitchen at the Exposition has issued
a tempting and appetizing collection
of rice receipts in a dainty little
brochure called "The Carolina Rice
Cook Book," which can be procured
by any housekeeper who is interested
in this most important question of
what to eat, where to get it, and how
to cook it.
The following very logical argument
in favor of rice as a food as compared
with*meat is taken from an article
prepared by the literary bureau pf the
"Whether the present high cost of
liYing-'is due to the formation of trusts
or combinations of small dealers, the
fact remains beyond contradiction that
articles upon which the ordinary
individual and his family are compell?
ed to subsist have advanced materially.
"This advance has been manifested
all along the line, but particularly has
excited public attention in the matter
of recent increase in the value of meat
produc?s. The butchers have been in?
cluded in the list and today good beef,
meat, veal and pork are selling at an
? advance of 10 to 20 per cent. The
matter is becoming serious, as it di?
rectly affects the question of living in
the matter of household expenses, and
the man with the small salary, in
using the parlance of the street, is
"up against it." That is why we
suggest :"I you can't afford to eat
meat, eat rice."
"The value per pound is very large?
ly in favor of rice, as the cereal pro?
vides five times the footd material as
the same value expended for beef.
Rice is cheaper, is more easily digest?
ed than any other food and can be
cooked in "over two hundred forms,
and it contains every element of nutri?
The Minneapolis Tribune says : The
alleged discovery of Prof. Andrews,
of Columbia University, that "rice
will pop like corn?" if subjected to a
sufficiently high temperature, is to
be utilized by a Minneapolis company
to produce a new breakfast food.
Whether rice can be subjected to heat
of 400 degrees without scorching or
burning it we do not know ; but if it
can be, it is manifest that it will fur?
nish a thoroughly cooked starch food
that ought to be wholesome. It is a
well known theory of cooks and
chemists that starchy foods produce
dyspepsia only when they are eaten
raw or undercooked.
Charleston grocers are now selling
a very fine rice flour made from best
selected Carolina rice, and, as it is
almost as cheap as the best grade of
wheat flour, and more nutritious and
more easily digested, rice breads
should become the standard breakfast
bread on every southern table.-News
Schiey on Sampson.
Washington, May 7.- Admiral Schiey
today made the following statement re?
garding the death of Admiral Samp?
" I regret very much the death of
Admiral Sampson and I sympathize
with his family? No one has heard
me utter one unkind word about him.
"On account of his death I have re?
quested my friends in Baltimore to
postpone the delivery to me, which
was intended to have taken place to?
night, of the Cristobal Colon service
of silver, and they have acceded to my
request. ' '
Baltimore, May 7.-Agreeably to
the wishes of Rear Admiral W. S.
Schiey the presentation of the silver
service, made from coins taken from
the Spanish cruiser Cristobal Colon,
has been indefinitely postponed.
Owing to the death of Admiral Samp?
son, Admiral Schiey requested the
committee having the matter in hand
to abandon the presentation which
has been arranged for tonight at the
residence of Theodore Marburg in this
city. The service together with a let?
er of presentation from the donors will
be sent to Washington by express.
Wagener Day Music.
Music is to be a great feature of the
Wagener Day exercises at the South
Carolina Inter-State and West Indian
Exposition. The details of the musi?
cal programme are now being arranged
by the joint managers and the first
rehearsal for the grand choruses will
be held in the Freundschafts Bund
Hall Saturday evening at S.30 o'clock.
All of the singers are invited and ex?
pected to be present and Madame
Barbot will see that the voices are
properly placed and the music distrib?
uted for the concert pieces. The
music will all be from German com?
posers and will oj^en with the cele?
brated "'Tannhauser March," with
band and chorus. The "Largo" of
Handel will be given and the "Exposi?
tion Ode," written by the Hon.
George Herbert Sass and set to music
by Prof. Theo Saul, will be sung for
the second time. This ode was given
at the opening of the Exposition, but
there is every reason why it should be
sung again and will no doabt be heard
at even a better advantage on May 22.
There will be several instrumental
selections by the First Band, United
States artillery corps, inculding the
grandiv beautiful "Jubel" overture,
by Weber.-News and Courier. g
As the Miniature Railway is to re?
main in the county when the Exposi?
tion closes it is proper to suggest, per?
haps, that more track should be pro?
vided and the line be established be?
tween Mount Pleasant and McClellan
ville. Christ Church Parish needs
railroad development badly, and a
small beginning is better than none.
If the little line were planted then
among the fertile truck farms it would
certainly grow very fast.-News and

The McLaurin Movement.
For some time past we have been
watching with keen interest the
career of Senator McLaurin of South
Carolina. He is a man of intelli?
gence, a man of practical ideas and a
man of more or less independence of
thought and action. He is a
politician and politicians can?
not always be taken strictly at
their word. But there is food for
thought in the address which Mr.
McLaurin has recently made to the
voters of his State. He gives an inter?
esting review of the political' revolu?
tion in South Carolina by which the
Hampton regime was overthrown and
the Tillman regime set up. Mr. Mc?
Laurin was an important factor in
the Tillman movement, and he is in a
measure responsible for the new order
of things in South Carolina. But he
is frank enough to say that the last
state of things is worse than the first.
He refused absolutely to go into the
primary, declaring that "the primary
system adopted in the State through
the farmers' movement has been pros?
tituted and perverted into a political
machine for the purpose of excluding
all candidates who are not in full ac?
cord with the. wishes of Tillman, the
dictator. " " The vital question is, ' '
says he, "Will the people of the State
submit to the political tyrant - and
join in this unholy and unpatriotic
work of disfranchising the intelligent
people and excluding them from our
elections." He asserts that the pri?
mary system in South Carolina has
been sacrificed upon the altar of
partisanship and personal malignity,
and has, therefore, become unpatriotic
and useless, and should be ignored
and finally repudiated by the people.
He declares "that a party yoke has
been placed upon the voters of the
State and has become too galling for
When the so-called McLaurin move?
ment was inaugurated The Times ex?
pressed the opinion that it was the
beginning of another political revolu?
tion in South Caroilna, and it would
now appear that it is Mr. McLaurin's
intention to call his own followers off
and establish a new party in the State.
Whether or not this is to be a Repub?
lican party we cannot say, but Mr.
McLaurin has some distinctly Republi?
can views, and if we may judge from
some of his expressions and some of
his acts, he is not very far from the
At the recent conference of Southern
educators at Athens, Ga., a South
Carolina speaker brought down the
house by saying that his State was a
storm center in the political world. It
is even so, and those who study the
signs on the political weather map see
in this address of McLaurin the gath?
ering of ominous clouds. The course
and progress of the storm will be
watched with interest by the people in
all parts of the country.-Richmond
Va., Times._ _
What Henry Walterson Says
So far as the address of Senator Mc?
Laurin relates to the primary election
rules prevalent in South Carolina,
it is mainly a local party question in
which Democrats in other parts of
the country are not very greatly in?
terested. His plea for independence
of thought and action is. rather too
vague to meet with general acceptance.
Undoubtedly a certain degree of inde?
pendence must be conceded to repre?
sentatives of the people and of States,
but there is a probability of carrying
this far beyond the bounds of toler?
ance. When a Representative or a
Senator ceases to represent the people
who elected him or the State by
which he is accredited in any tolerable
degree, he car hardly claim that he
ought to receive any indorsement.
The manner in which the indorsement
ought to be given becomes of second?
ary importance when no sort of appro?
bation is possible.
Now it is pretty generally believed
that this is precisely the position in
which Senator McLaurin'finds him?
self It is net that he differs from the
leaders of the party upon some ques?
tions that have been the subect of dif?
ferences within the party heretofore.
It is not apparent that Mr. McLaurin
agrees with the Democratic party in
anything that is a party question. He
specifies some points in which he
differs from the Democracy of the
country. But he fails to mention ,any
point upon which he is in accord with
the Democrts, or out of harmony with
the Republicans. This being true, it
would seem that questions of party
organization are matters upon which
be is not entitled to be heard at all.
True, he calls himself a Democrat, but
he neglects to mention anything what?
ever in his views, acts or purposes
which entities him to call himself by
the party name.
Mr. McLaarin's recent course in
the Senate bears ont these observa?
tions. It is not merely his differences
with his colleague, Mr. Tillman,
which separate.'him from the Demo?
crats of the Senate. Over and over
Ri ai i we rind in the reports of divis
i- .\.. thar "it was a strict party vote
;xcept that Senator McLaurin voted
with the Republicans." Here Mr.
McLaurin is classed as a Democrat
simply because he still calls himself
such. He was elected as a Democrat,
but on all party divisions he is found
acting with the Republicans. So far
as can be ascertained he is in his views
and in his acts in full accord with the
Republicans. They took care of him
in committee assignments, because the
Democratic Senators decilned to recog?
nize him as a member of their party.
They were justified in this course be?
cause they could not depend on his co?
operation in any matter in which Sen?
ators divided on party lines.
If Mr. McLaurin is unwilling to
resign his seat in the Senate because
he no longer represents his State, this
is hardly a reason why he should
seek to conceal his party affiliation.
He does well not to seek a nomination
as a Democrat, but it is not easy to
see why he should any longer deny
that he is a Republican. If he has, as
he intimates, many friends in South
Carolina who approve his course, it
must be because they, too, have be?
come converts to the Republican
faith. If he believes, in spite of all
the facts to the contrary, that his
service in the Seriate are still desired,
he can easily satisfy himself by appeal?
ing to the people on that question.
His term expires next March and his
services in the Senate from South-'C?r
olina is then likely to terminate,
unless South Carotina has become a
Rennblican State, which nobody be?
PAUL LEICESTER FORD MURDERED.
SHOCKING DEATH OF AUTHOR
X)F "JANICE MEREDITH."
His Brother Kills Him and Sends
a Bullet Through His Own
New York, May 8.-Paul Leicester
Ford, the novelist, was shot and kill?
ed today by his brother, Malcom Web?
ster Ford, writer and athlete, who im?
mediately sent a bullet into his breast,
dying instantly. The shooting occur?
red at 10:20 a. m., in the handsome
new mansion which Paul Leicester
Ford had built at 37 East 77th fstreet,
and had occupied for about a year, fcj
At the time of the shooting there
were in the house besides the two
brothers, Mrs. Paul Leicester Ford,
Miss Elizabeth R Hall, the novelists'
secretary, and the servants. The nov?
elist was sitting at his desk in one
corner of his library, a large, attrac?
tively appointed room at the back of
the house on the second floor. It is
supposed !he was busily engaged at
some literary task. Miss Hall was at
her desk in another corner of the room
about 30 feet from Mr. Ford. Mrs.
Paul Leicester Ford was in her own
room at the front of the house on the
Malcom W. Ford called, as he often
had done, and went to bis brother at j
his desk. Words were exchanged in a
tone so low that Miss Hall could not
hear what was said, though she says
that possibly she might have distin?
guished the words if she had been pay?
ing any attention to this particular
meeting of the brothers. Suddenly
there was a revolver shot and Miss
Hall, jumping up, darted from the
room. Then, according to the state?
ments of the police, Miss Hall said to
herself that she must act more bravely
and reenter the library.
Meanwhile Malcolm Ford had call?
ed her. As she turned towards him,
he placed his revolver to his heart,
fired and fell, dying instantly. When
Miss Hall turned to look at Paul, he
was still standing at his desk, but
rapidly losing strength. She helped
him to a sofa and then ran next door
for Paul Ford's physician, Dr. Eman?
uel Baruch. In less than five minutes
Dr. Baruch arrived and the dying
man, still conscious, was carried up
to a room beside his wife's and placed
on his bed. He spoke to his wife, and
asked the doctor for his opinion, show?
ing that he expected death and was
going to meet it calmly and bravely.
A few moments later, about 20 min?
utes after he was shot, Mr. Ford died.
Newberry, May 6.-A safe belong?
ing to Wheeler and Bowers, cotton
buyers at Prosperity, in this county,
was blown open with dynamite at. 3
o'clock this morning and robbed of
8240. The safe was in the Prosperity
postoffice building. Mr. Wheeler, liv?
ing but a few yards away, was awak?
ened by the explosion, and upon going
to the postoffice three shots were fired
by a man standing outside the door
evidently as a signal-for a light,
which Mr. Wheeler had observed in
the building, was immediately put
out by some one inside. Only a few
dollars of money belonging to the post
office was taken.
A Pastor's Farewell.
A country minister took leave of
his congregation the following way :
"Brothers and sisters, I come to tell
you good-bye. I don't think you love
me, because you have not paid my
salary. Your donations are mouldy
fruit and wormy apples; and the
Scripture saith. "'By their fruits ye
shall know them.' Brothers, 1 am
going away to a better place-to be
chaplain of a penitentiary. My text
this morning is, * I go to prepare a
place for you,' and may the Lord haye
mercy on your souls. Good-bye."
