Mattlaon, general agent of Tho Mutual Benefit Lire In surance Company for tho State of South Carollnu, publluhed in this paper Home days ago. The total premium^ collections of that company in thc State of South Carollnu for the years. 1812 to 1014, Inclusive, waa $1,632,029.00, and for tho Hame period' lil? company dls burw.d in South Carolina $2,317,429.00, or $004,799.00 moro than it had re ceived in collections from this utate. How did lt do lt? ' It IK interesting to note thut during that period tho company paid death claims, dlvidend? and cash values to itu policyholder of $777,047.00. It paid taxes amounting to $34,218.00, und paid physicians und agency ex penses of $214;9?3.00, and hence the balance of its South Carolina dls hurHcmentB for that period, amount ing to $1,291,000.00, represonts loam; mado to South Carolina people. In cluding loaro; oh p?jlcies, tho Mu tual Benefit's total Investmente in South Carolina at this timo amount, in round ligures, to $2,500,000.00 This shows that this company, which stood-tho test of the Bovere in vestigation through which insurance companios were put aorao years ago wlthou'/un advorso criticism, ls a be liever In South Carolina securities, us woll as in the great number of citi zens In thin state whoso lives it in sures.

Iii this connection, it appears from tho Insurance Commissioner's office that various insurance, companies had loaned $770,861.00 on. '.'mortgages of real cn triton In Anderson County up to Juno 30th,'' last, and from an investi gation of,tho rccordn, it appoarB that Tho MututH -Behoflfc ,0Ufe Insurance Company hos mado moi o, farm loans In this county than any oilier com pany, and that its loam; amount to nearly OB much as all others Com bi nc a, and, that, notwithstanding ."warn and nunora ot . war," lt Is steadily lending'tts* funds to the sub stantial and' progressive . farmers of this county; and we are informed that there is net a dollar of'AaBt due ln terest ofe' yif of-tts fa&j$<o$p.s, either !n 'Anderson County^ t>r 'In this sec tion of the state.

The guardsmen have had a long, hard struggle against publtc indif ference, lack of funds and actual dis crimination against them on tho part of employers. Dut all that is rapidly chnnging, with tho new interest in military matters inspired by the de mand for better national defense. The secretary of war has taken a stand which, if maintained, will give tho militia vastly increased prestige. He announces that, as part of (he ad ministration's plans for reorganiza tion of the army, he propoaca to give tlic national guardsmen the atativ of regular soldiers. Any militia detach ment, if his plan goos through, may be taken over just as lt Is, tho of ficers keeping their commands, and every member, whether officer or pri vate, having tho title and salary pre scribed for tho regular army. All this is excel'?nt There ls an other reform, however, which has been tentatively suggested and might be oven more fruitful of good results. The chiof stumbling block ot the na tional guard has always been thc liability ot guardsmen to servo as police in suppressing riots, putting down strikes, etc. The frequent use of the militia in labor disputes has given labor organizations a strong prejudice agalnBt lt, and that preju dice Interferes seriously with the proper developmont of the militia aa an adequate auxiliary to tho regular army. Tho opposition of union labor has co-operated with the natural ob jection of most .citizens to such du ties, and thus kept down tho enlist ment. Nothing, porhaps, would do more to ralBe tho militia to real honor and popularity than the elimination of this disagreeable function. It has boen charged, with consider able appearance of truth, that the uso of the militia in labo disputes 1B unconstitutional anyhow. The fed eral constitution says merely that "the congress shall have power to provide foe calling forth the militia to executo the laws of the Union, sup press insurrections and repel in vasions." It ls held that the various states have simply got into the habit of diverting the national guard from its lawful work. It this is the case, it ls a strong legal .argument added to . tho argument of. human nature and common sense. I In any event, the necessary police 'Work might moro appropriately bo done by other bodies organised de finitely as state police, after the. models of such organisations tn Penn sylvania and New York. (JETTING BID OF DOPE , j - Excellent results have already been obtained tinder tho Harris act paused by the last congress for regulating j the traffic in habit-forming drags. ' The effort to curb tho evil hsB natur ally been most successful in the states that have enacted laws sup plementing the national law. New York, whoso drastlo Boylan law has j now been offectlve for nearly a year, la congratulating itself on tho efficacy of the ?uu'uiu system/of regulation. , In New York City alone more than I 700. r rm vic t Innii hay? bO?n Obtained I since January 1 for violations of this law, which forbids the sale of any habit-forming drug without the num bered and recorded prescription of a registered physician. Many unscrup ulous druggists who formerly made big profits by supplying "dope" to all comers , have , been put out, of busi ness. Great numbera of vendors who secretly furnished the deadly drugs to denizens ot tho under*world, and multiplied tho harm by tempting novices Into tho drug bondage, hayo been, given salutary frunishment And better still, thousands of victims most of whom had become "dopa (lends" ignorantly or accidentally, have been sent to hospitals for treat ment, at public expense 'if they/ could iiot afford to pay for it, and redeemed from this most wretched of alaverlee. It ls possible still for those -Who ''know the ropes" to get "dope," But tho activity ot the police "dopa squad" has so restricted tho ililclt drug traffic in Now York that1 cocaine, which two yean ago could bo bought onj tho street for twenty-five cents a "deck,", now, costa. the stealthy, pur chaser $G, and twenty-five cent*v worth, of heroin . or morphine when similar? ly bought Without ? ^prescription cont* q*%fmp?fcmtb% ??-that' few y?*i0fc tims are treated, and the old habitues aro gradually discovered, rounded up and given curative treatment !
