TAR ANR FEATHER PARTIES.
Self-constituted guarpians of law
and morality have been -inive re
cently in many places. People sup
posed to have committed offenses
are treated to the traditional cos
tumes of tar and feathers. It is to
be feared, however, that the zeal of
many perpetrators of these acts is
moved not so much by a desire to
improve the morals of the commu
, as by a love for rough horse
play and a brutal desire to get even
The moment people undertake such
prfo~ances in the supposed name
of decea., others will be encouraged
to do su-%. things 'out( of personal
spite, and ross outrages will be
committed against innocent people.
The people have created courts and
police to attend to such matters, and
they should be asked to do their du
ty. Offenders against decency can
be made to feel the contempt of the
community, which is an efficient de
FIRE PREVENTION DAY.
The'American people complain bit
terly about the extravagance of the
Government, and yet most persons
are responsible for wastes that are
equally needless and preposterous.
One of the most notable of these is
the annual fire loss. It is not much
use to find fault with our lawmakers
when we burn up annually nearly
$300,000,000 worth of property.
Fire department and insurance
men have been conducting a vigor
ous campaign to arouse the people'
to the folly of this annual loss. The
Fire Preventiop Day which has been
pppointed- for consideration of this
matter, has done a good deal to
awaken ' the public to the subject.
This year it comes' on October 10,
and it is an occasion that should
make people stop and think.
While insurance is a splendid sys
tem for equalizing losses, yet it
leads to a good deal of carelessness.
The man. who is fully covered by
insurance feels that he does not
not stand to suffer much if his
property burns down, so he neglects
.precautions that would be taken if
he had no insurance. As the result
of this easy-going ateitude, many
dangerous conditions are tolerated,
and it becomes easy for a blaze to
start and spread.
It m'akes a fireman's hair stand on
end to see the way a lot of people
will handle inflAmmable things.
They throw matches into waste bas
kets without a thought to see if
they are extinguished. They allow
rubbish to collect in their buildings
without thought of 'what would hap
pen if thesame gotafire. Then they
expect firemen to risk their lives to
put out a blaze once it gets a start
in these firetraps.
The insurance companies do a
great deal to reduce fires, by inspec
tions of property to secure removal
of hazards. Anyone who fails to
comply with reasonable fire preven
tion rules deserves to have his poli
cy cancelled and he can have no
kick coming if he has to stand a

UIT. ZION BEATS HARTSVILLL
Fighting with a stubborness that
was commendable in all its phases,
Hartsville High forced the local
eleven to be contented with a close
triumph last Frday. The side lines
were thinly populated, but those
in attendance enjoyed a fine day of
play, considering this was the first
ame of the season.
Mt. Zion commenced the game,
the visitors receiving the ball. For
two periods both elevens registered
'othing, the lone touchdown coming
the seFond half; Robinson going
across the goal for the score. Enu
merating individual playing is not
an easy tat, but the catching of
.orward passes by Hanahan de

appear. , That is precisely the man
ner, in which Chamberlain's Cough

whooping cough. Every bottli that
has ever been put out by the manu
facturers has been fully up to the

can be depended upon for the relief
and cure of these ailments and that
it is pleasant and safe to take.

ROBBING THE FRUIT TREES.
Active boys from time immemo
-ial have practiced the habit of raid
ng fruit trees. Many people who
>wn such trees, grapevines, etc., fig
ire that if they get half the product,
hoy do pretty well. If you remon
trate with the parents, they laugh
n say "Boys will be boys."
It is pretty discouraging to a
iouseholder, after he has put in
lard work improving his place by
slanting fruits and vines, to see his
ffort thrown away through the mis
hief of these heedless children. Pa
ents should not take such corn
laints lightly, and should offer
omething more than mere talk to
Some of these boys after they get
rown up go out with a bag dark
ights and raid gardens and orch
rds, and carry off a large quantity
f costly food products. Better not
ry it too many times, boys, or you
1ay get some gunshot or dog bites
