Among bankers and others who

thoru Is common agreement that
?rmous sums of French and Eng
capital are being transferred to
this country for permanent employ?
ment here. There are various rea?
sons fsr this shift of capital. The
productive fields of the United States
ate as naturally rich, with large re?
turns easily and quickly earned, that
capital discontented with its profits
or security In other places seeks the
better chance, for capital out of em?
ployment or engaged in unsatisfac?
tory employment hunts for work just

Again the foreign manufacturer
who eaanot get a share of our domes?

tablished here, will often move all or
part of his plant to the United States
so aa to be able to operate within the
Waas of our custom duties. This
While permitting the foreigner to

terms with American producers,
the productive forces of the

which are spent here, stimulates the

to the national wealth. A case In

THE REVOLUTION A BLUNDER?
McClure Declares That America Can
Absorb British Empire.
rd. ?. McClure, of New York, In a
blic address ?eAtNiday said the Brit?
ish empire is In momentary danger
of destruction at hands of Germany
and ready, merely for the asking to
accept the dominance of the United
States and set the empire's real seat
of authority transferred to Wash?
When the orators In the national
convention of revolutionary France
declared that British power had been
destroyed. Marlbeau asked where,
when and in what latitude. Fifty
years later Ledru Rollln, who became
vice president of one of the French
republics, wrote a book on "The De?
cline of England." Since then Eng?
land has not declined any territory.
Increasing her possessions In both
Asia and Africa.
McClure called the parting of
the United States from England In
1771 a disastrous mistake, and read a
statement from Lord Rosebury In
which that statesman predicts that if
England and her American colonies
had not separated at the time of the
revolution the seat of government of
the British empire would already
have been transferred from the Brit?
ish isles to what Is now the United
States, and those islands would sim?
ply have been the sacred historic
shrine of the great world empire of
the English speaking people.
"When a business man makes a
mistake," Mr. McClure continued, "he
does whatever he can to remedy it
and eliminate its effect. We made a
disastrous mistake in parting from
England at the time of the revolution,
and ahoufd, as nearly as possible, re?
turn to the conditions that would
have existed If we had not made It.
The United States should secure dom?
inance In the British empire, and
this in the present condition of
that realm can be had merely for
"The present situation of England
and Germany la that of two farmers
living side by side, one of whom Is
a first rate prise fighter, has trained
his people to be prize fighters, and
says to his neighbor, who has been
peaceably engaged In cultivating his
estate, *l want some of your property
and I'm going to have it.' The pos?
sible destruction of the British em?
pire which this means, is the most
terrible problem before us today."
South Carolina Is a State that can
boast of many historic Incidents,
among the number being the battle
of King's Mountain, which was
fought on October 7, 1780, between
the British troops and Tories under
Col. Patrick Ferguson and the
American patriots under Generals
Lacy, Williams and Sevler. The bat?
tle ground Is located in York county
and all citizens of York county are
Indeed proud of It. On October 7th,
of this year, the monument that Is
being erected by the government, for
which $40,000 waa appropriated, will
be unveiled and great Interest is be?
ing manifested all over the nation on
account of the accaslon.
In this battle there were troops
from North Carolina. Virginia, Geor?
gia. Tennessee and South Carolina,
and It Is said that all af these States
will be represented on the occasion of
the dedication of the monument.
Two other monuments have been
erected on this historic spot, the first
one being but three feet in height, an
ordinary granite slab. In 1880 a
monument was erected by South Car?
olinians, the necessary funds being
raised by public subscriptions and
now the government 13 building a
monument that should have been
built many years ago.?Rock Hill

The Thaw Case and the Insanity Plca.
The decision that Harry K. Thaw
is Insane, and must go back to the
asylum for the insane and remain
there, cannot but lessen the disposi?
tion of violent men to look to this
plea of Insanity for immunity in the
commission of certain crimes. The
asylum has been for too many mur?
derers a short cut to liberty. "Brain?
storm" and temporary insanity" have
been overworked, especially when
there was large wealth to draw upon
for the hire of lawyers and allenl3ts.
The Jury in Thaw's case accepted as
correct the defense made in his be?
half during his trial, that -he was
Insane. It is not logical or right
that he should "blow hot and cold
with the same mouth"?plead Insani?
ty as a means of escaping punish?
ment, and set up sanity as a means
of escaping the asylum. Evidence
clear enough to free the prisoner
from responsibility for his actions
ought certainly to be clear enough to
keep him from fresh opportunities
for mwrder. It Is no doubt possible
for a man1 to become insane and af?
terward recover sanity. But the ben?
efit of this possibility was precluded
for Thaw, in Justice Mills' opinion,
by conclusive evidence that Thaw's
delusions had become fixed in his
mind prior to the time of his marri?
age and that he still cherishes de?
lusions in regard to Stanford White's
conduct. Before the murder, at the
time of the murder and now, after
the murder, his mind, in the opinion
of Justice Mills, exhibits a perversion
which makes it dangerous to allow
him to go at large.?Baltimore Sun.
A teacher in a small Oregon
school was giving a lesson on the
Circulation Of the blood: Trying to
make it clearer he said: "Now, chil?

as you know, would run into it, and I
should turn red In the face."
"Yes. sir." said they.
"Now, Arthur,'' continued the
teacher, addressing a small boy,
"What I want to know is this: How
is it thai while I am standing up?
right In this ordinary position the
blood doesn't run into my feet and
turn them red?''
"Why, sir." answered Arthur, "be?
cause your feet ain't empty."?Bun

The Girls I Almost Kissed.
From the fish I have almost caught?
Lobster or sucker or skate?
To the witty things I've thought
Just half a wink too late;
From the riches I've almost had
To the trains I've barely missed,
There is never a memory so sad
As the girls that I almost kissed.
There was Alice, who said me nay,
And Anna, who spurned me cold,
And the merry, the madcap Mae,
Who cried I was bad and bold.
Their bright eyes haunt my dreams
la a dim, delicious mist,
And a glint of pearl and ivory
Through the lips that I almost kiss?
There was Rose of the soulful sigh
And June of the wistful face,
Allegra of luring eye
And the courtly poise of Grace.
Lo, out of my giddy past,
Though I squirm and struggle and
The sweet ghosts find me out at
The girls that I almost kissed.
Though I'm fat, smooth doomed and
And none would kiss me now,
My loves come back to fold
New wrinkles in my brow,
And each has a suit to lay
On my breach of promise list,
For the girls that I almost kissed one
Next day I always kissed!

Lexington, and a reporter from Cin?

prominent citizen whom he did not

the badger, quite ready to help all
he could. "I saw him not 15 minutes

"He's a big, tall man."
