The Press and Banner, BY HUGH WILSON. ABBEVILLE, S. C. ^-Published every Wednesdp at. 82 i jcur Id advanoe. Wednesday, May 6, 1903. Tbe Small Pox. Several weeks ago we had In town severe cases of small pox, but tbe disease did no materially effect business. A town tbe slz of Abbeville can always spare a few mei without being wrecked. Wben epidemic break oat some men are very useful in swell lng tbe mortality without doing serious In Jury to the town. In like manner we coul< spare a few men from onr busy marts, an< their abBenoe from tbe scenes of activity would not be missed. As a "scare-crow" tbe small pox has mori terrors for the average citizen than an arm: with banners. There are also many citizen who are more afraid of a sore on their arm than they would be o.' all tbe 6ores tba afflioted Job. Job would no doubt havi voided the small pox, but In bis day anc time Jenner bad not milked bis old cow, anc and tbe Doctors of that day bad not learnec to vaccinate their patients. A portion of our people and members o the city oouncil, were Impressed with tb< danger of the affilotlon from which Jot suffered, and having no fears of an odd boh on their left arm, insisted on everybody tak 1 n cr q hrnarHomlrt Intact Inn r\t lha vlrito As a result, there are now more sore armi in Abbeville tban there ever was befor< at any one time. The cotton mill peopl< / have been suffering from it so much that tbi offloers found It advisable or necessary t( stop the machinery for a time in order to le: their operatives go lDto tbe round house foi repairs. I"'\ The vaccination has done Its work well Tbe Bmall pox having struck slate and got tbe worst of one or two cases, has left foi parts unknown to this deponent. But th< vaccinated arms are still with us. When al oar people are vaoolnated and fumigated anc disinfected, and when cures for rhoumatlsn are more plentiful tban autumn leaves, 1 would seem that pills and potions of pbysl elans would be no longer necessary. This small pox scare would seem to offer a cbanci for the patent mediolne man to get an InniDg As yet we have seen, no advertisement of an: patent specific or antidote for Job's alllectlon Books or Bread ? Carnegie, the great philanthropist, Is spend lng vast sums for the erection, or organize tlon, of pnbllo libraries In many towns. The motive which prompts th6 giver for 11 branea la oommendable In the highest degree bat the great need of onr people 1b employ ment?the opportunity to start a little fortun of their own or the ohance to support thel families. If the great giver wonld revlr.o his notion and contribute something to tie erection, o construction of Industrial enterprises hi * would be Indeed a benefactor of the bumai race. When men are hungry and their chlldrei are 111 clad, a book Is not so Inspiring and up lifting as the opportunity to earn money wltl which to support and educate little children To accept girt* Is often of doubtful propriety but the opportunity to earn an honest llvlnj fills a man's heart with pride and Inspires li him the ambition to strive for higher and bet ter things than be may possess. If any man doubts tbe good results tba come'from the obanoe to work, let him en quire Into tbe life of tbe Individuals who rui oar railroads or work In our shops, or run th cotton mill, or fill Important plaoes at our fui nltnre factory. Tba money which Is paid out by the rail roads, the cotton mill, tbe furniture factor; and other industrial enterprises, awoke thl town from its forty yearB' sleep, during wblcl time tbe business and population did not li crease. Instead of sixteen or seventeen stores, of al kinds, we have today between fifty and sizt; stores. Instead of building lots having n sale, even at figures but little above the prlc of farming landB, an acre In some Instance would bring tbe price of a good farm. Tb price of real estate baa gone up wonderfully showing that tbe Increase of our populatlo from 1,700 to 4,350 has benefitted everybody Tbe n*w people make big money and the; spend It with a liberal band. South Carolina's Need. Our eateemed contemporary, The Newberr; Observer, thinks that South Carolina's gres need la men, and quite a number of respecte brethren of the press seem to agree In opinio: , with the Observer. All the eflorts which patriotic citizens c the various towns and cities are making t promote the growth and prosperity of tb municipalities go to prove that the grea ccramble now going on la for men?men wltl money or mlnda. In opposition to this some Kip Vai Winkles are advising the return of men t< the farms. Such brethren, however patriotli are simply pitching straws against the wind With the advantages of town lite, in goo< houses, and with good wages which all abl bodied persons or little obildren may earn, 1 It possible that any considerable number < persona are going to quit good Jobs in town t live in log cabins, to eat dirt and go barefoot The average family at any of our cotton mill live in stood housAfi. adIot church and scboo advantages, and draw for their services li the cotton mills from 810 to S20 a week. 1 they oan earc 8600 by their labor Id a cottoi mill, why will they go back to the farm, V live Id poor hoases, to work reated land, t< eat bread at lien prices, for which the oro] will scaroely pay t The great need of this County 1b profltabli y', employment for citizens. The negroes have no faotorles In which the; can work. They mast, therefore, of necesslt; stay on the farm, while their white neighbor are going to town. To Measure Zeal antl Ability. Mr. W. U. Chapman believe*) that a new furniture factory would do Abbevilli much good, and he Is so much lmpresBec with the probable advantage of such an in BlHuuou to iu? muuKuuiuerH mai ue ib wil ling to pat some money In H, Irrespective at to wbo may be the officers. An option ba been secured on an eligible Bite in Cosb; town. If yon want to belp tbe town ant help yourself, call at bis store and put you name down for an amount equal to you ability and not less forceful tban your zeal. Don't Son Your Featber Beds. In tbe spring of tbe year many bousekeef ers think It Is tbelr bounder* duty to expos tbelr featber beds to tbe rays of tbe sun 01 tlrat hnt riotra nf enrlnc Fenthnr hpd should be aired, but not euaned. If put li the draft in the shade the best results will fol low. If placed Id the hot bud, the grease li the feathers will become ranoid and give ou an odor which la neither desirable nor pleas ant to the olfactory nerves. ? ? ? Georgia Editor. Editor Thornton, of the Eiberton Tribune was In towo last Saturday and Sunday. Th< Press and Banner was glad to see him. Then is much Id Mr. Thorotoo, and we shall be dls appointed if he does Dot at some future time have a bigger office and wield a wider lnflu ence than is possible Just now. He will mak< a success of aDy tblDg that be goes at. Cali again, neighbor. We will always be glad tc see yon." L.JLUiJEI.mA '.I . 'U!._. .'JL.,,,..'! 1-1 1 . Fnrnlttire and rnderwear. ' Personally, It makes very little difference : to this editor whether another furniture faotory is built, but in order to keep up the racket we would like to see a new factory go up. " As far as we know, Abbeville has no- industrial enterprise which does not help every in* ; terest of the town. Abbeville can and ought to have other enterprises. It is to be hoped that we are not going Into another Rip Van . Winkle sleep.!,But we fear the Indications are too much In that way. We shouldn't Jet the year pass without gome new plant going ; up. A dealer In knitting machinery spent a day in town last Monday. He excited some inter1 est In his proposed plant, and It is to be hoped t that some practical good may come of It. It e we could get a knitting mill and a furniture i factory, that would be progress, and our peos pie are abundantly able to build both. To - give honorable employment to our deserving neighbors 1b a higher purpose than giving l great plies of money to bother the Cblnaman 1 about his religion. Missions should begin at 7 home, and when we begin at home we should give bread and not a stone. It Is unproflt9 able to spend a thousand dollars to convert a 7 fifteen cents chinaman. Better give employs ment to bomefolk. 1^ ; THE BOOSTER CAME DOWN. i 1 After Standing: on Weather Vane for Tblrty*Slx Years, It anie Down f Monday. I In tbe year 1867 T. C. Seal, J. W. Sign nnd J. William Robertson bought tbe lot on Wash* J lngton street, where tbey built a large two. story carriage shop, and other buildings. In the belfry a big bell was swung, wbiob for a quarter of a century rang tbe work hoars, as 3 well as the times when tbe men should cease ? from toil. On tbe top of that belfry, was [ placed a cock cat from sboet tin; A rod wan ' run through it so that It was easily adjusted } to tbe wind currents. One peculiarity aboat j that "rooster" was that it never crowed at midnight or at dawn or at any other time. 1 Another peculiarity about it that marked It as r rti ftp riant, from an v other bird was the fact that it always turned Its tall to the wind. Itstood that way until the recent heavy wind storm that swept the country, when Its tail was l doubled back toward the front, which doubr llnir made that bird appear not in the llkenesB of anything on the earth or in the sea. 3 Last Monday the demolition of the building 1 was commenced, by Messrs. Calvert & Nlckles when the tower was thrown down, and the hisloryof that weather vane was ooncluded. 1 The bell to which reference was made was l some four or five years ago, transferred to another field of usefulness. Some years ago, a portion of our colored citizens mixed their re* liglon and their feet, and after It was deteri mined to have a footwashlng organization a bell was necessary so that all coald pray and ' wash feet at the same time. That bell which V formerly called the mechanic from refresh, ment to labor, and from labor to refreshment Rounds the signal for rootwashlng, the sweet incense from the purifying process asoendsng to the sky on the perlumed air alike In Summer and in Winter. The "Liberty Bell" In Philadelphia proclaimed the freedom of the I- American people from the rule of the mother i country. The effort oracked Its side, aDd the * historic metal Is preserved a relic of the allImnnrfonf oufint. Thfl Rhnn hall In Iffl nfiw I- steeple still serves Its purpose, In rlnglDg oat > the glorious news of free salvation to repent. ant sinners and proclaiming to an amazed people tne tidings of the fumigated feet of e those who would wear the golden slippers or , walk the city of golden street*. In a little while the old shop and all Its associations will disappear from our sight and b mind. Its existence will soon be only a memr ory. In former days It was the chief manufacturing establishment In the county. The s members of the firm were young and enerj getlc. Their skill as the builders of bonest vehicles was acknowledged by all. But the bringing of machine work to tbls market 1 brought a change In the price of carriages and - buggies. Handwork could not compete with . machine work, and the glory of the biggest carriage shop In this part of the country was gone. Wagons and buggies were reduced to , one-half the former prices, and the well-paid mechanics had to give up tbelr Jobs, the doors 5 of the Institution were closed, and the bell as 1 It stood sentry In the tower was silent. It neither called men to labor nor announced the hour of rest. Instead of acting as umpire between capital t and labor, as In former years, It will now look after the feetwasblng business down the hill. ROADS CONVENTION, i ', The Convention Meew-flood Roads 6 Furnish the Chief Topic of Conb vernation. '* Abbeville County Good Roads Convention met in the Court House at 11:80. on Salesday, [I tbe4tbday In May, president I. H. McCalla la tbe cbalr. Minutes of last meetiog were y read. Reports from tbe Townships were callo ed for, and all the Townships, except Borf, deaux, responded, stating that they bad not beard of any opposition, but that approval oi !B tbe movement was general. Tbe President e In entering on the business of tbe meeting, , made some appropriate and practical re' marks. Mr. T. N. Tolbert read a well pieparD ed and Interesting paper on tbe extent of tbe j needed Improvements In tbe Roads, and prov posed a plan of accomplishing them. He es ' tlmated the aggregate oosts of the Improvements to be about 870,000, and estimated that the actual expenses now incurred by farmers, which would be saved by tbe improved roads, to exceed 825,000 per annum. The following resolutions were passed : First. That the members of the Executive y Committee from each Township call a meetit tnjt, during tbe month (May) ol all the voters d In tbe townBblp, for the purpose of organizing a Township Good Roads Association. That u ibey be requested to eleot seven delegates to tbe Abbeville Connty Good Roads AsBOCla,f flon, 10 meet at the Court House on Salesday id June at 11 o'clock- That the said delegates ? come fully prepared to report I he sentiment e ot tbe people or tbe township or to tbe matter t of the improvement of roads, with such Bug. gestions as to plan and expense to be lnourred 3 an may be deemed advisable and applicable totbelr respective townships. j Second. That tbey olrcuiate petitions In their reapectlve townships for signatures ol 0 2-3 of tbe free holders, to be presented to the c County Commissioners, requesting tbem to I, levy a special tax of one mill, to be expended ' in permanent improvements on tbe roads In 1 the township. e Third. That it is tbe sense of this meeting B that tbe Commissioners of Abbeville County f build good permanent roads for tbls County " on easy grades, and that tbey take such 0 steps as in tbelr Judgment are neceesary to ? make suoh Improvements, at the earliest possible day. 8 Supervisor Nlckles read &d Important pa1 per before tbe meeting, in which he slated Q that tbe appropriations now given to keep tbe roads up, amounting to something over 1 95,000, was sufficient to keep tbe roads repairi ed from year to year, and was practically dis3 slpated with but little practloall benefit remaining after tbe winter was over, and that 0 tbe only way to obviate this constantly, anp nually recurring drain was to raise money enough to make improvements of <% permanent character. That tbe same work bad e now to be done over every Spring. That tbe County bad to incur a debt in order to open new roads and add some permanent improvey ments. Adjourned to meet on Salesday in r June. b ? It you are a millionaire there is no special reason why you should secure any e of our Drummers' Samples, I because money is no object - to you.

That fa- ^ miliarlty with ever-present peril ' which breeds contempt in the most cautious of engineers is instanced by these men as the chief argument in favor of the plan of having an assistant engineer, though the danger of the man in control of the rushing machine falling dead or going insane is TWaaa loffnt* /inn. , g 1 V CU UUD ncigui.

A story illustrative of another source < j of peril, fortunately rare, was told the ! v day after the recent wreck. It dealt with one of the most popular engineer# on a road leading from New York. '' ' 'j?w? He was to take out a special, ou which were several members of the board of 5;. directors. The man was obviously "under the weather," and fell as he descended from his cab to make a last ' inspection of the slides and rods. For an instant he lay as if paralyzed, with his legs between the drivers, but only y'j&j for an instant. The fireman, who baa f* been peering apprehensively up at . 6-S bim from the after deck, was at side with a single bound, and struok bim a violent blow across the toe with his greasy cap. . rV't# $'#3 "Make out we're skylarking," he said, "or our folks7!! notice you and you'll lOBe yourjuu.-Quickly be raised bis mate to his feet. Then be boosted bim, laughing and striking back, up to the footboard. .->3 Then he jammed him on his seat at the lever, struck him one final blow, .'ki and agile as a cat climbed back to hta own place with a broad grin on his face. None of the witnesses who understood the incident interfered, and i.. two minutes later, when the air wfristie sounded, the special rolled away on ' her course to the mountains ana the forests as though controlled by the clearest brain, and steadiest hand on the whole long line. The engineer is dead. He did not >' ' / die that day, nor did any of those who rode behind or before him suffer as a result of his condition. But it was a long chance. They told one story on one train of y.^ an engineer on another line Who was running at a 50-eecond clip through a 10 mile stretch of forest with more than a dozen crowded cars when his pipe went out.
