I The Press and Banner. |:v BY HUGH WILSON. ? v ABBEVILLE, S. C. I ?, c .W-Published every Wedneedp at. 82 a year In advance. t Wednesday, May 18, 1904. F L" - - 8 Fight Fair. Our respected contemporary, tbeCbarleston p Post, says: v "It Is said that Hearst will probably bavo a b mnlorlty of Florida's delegates to the national Democratic convention. That Is not surprising. Florida Is ooe of the most promls- a lng 8tatea In the Union for the Investment of o money In politics. Mr. Flagler of the Standard Oil trust has taken up most of the offerings of that sort but Mr. Hearst of the newspaper trust may readily And a few bargains d left about." c Expressions like the above do not strike us s as exactly fair. While we know nothing of either Parker or Hearst, and while we favor Parker rather than Hearst, yet we do not like t to see insinuations against Hearst. Z* We have no doubt that Hearst is just as good a man as Parker, yet we have never thought Hearst would get the nomination for the simple reason that he Is an editor. There are perhaps a hundred editors of great newspapers who are Jealous of the preferment ol one of their number. The metropolitan dallies, we thought when bis name was first mentioned, would set the pace for other editors, who have no ambition to be president but who have a desire to be pure and virtuous. That is the way wo# look at the matter. , If Parker cannot win without vlllifylng Hearst, then we move, even if we do not get a second, a dark horse be nominated. If Hearst Is abused or traduced, his friends will resent the act, and the resentment of the f act will weaken the party. If Hearst is cheated out of the nomination by inslnua tions, how can his friends expect the support '/ of fair minded men, who live In any State ? where freedom of action is had. Of course the South will vote for the winner, but the South unaided, cannot elect a President. There is this much to be said in favor oi \ Hearst and his friends: They have not made ? insinuations against Parker. "Be thou as , chaste as Ice, or as pure as snow thon cans't ^ not escape oalumny." Hearst may not be ar good as Parker, but his friends have fought fairer than Parser's friends. And Hearst'6 lrleadi, in tbe Northern States, after such a course will have little obligation to endorse ( Implied reflections upon tbelr own cbaraoter. Q Of coarse we mean no sort of reflection on bo good a newsdaper as tbe Charleston Post. ^ And we assume to differ from so able a paper ? %' y. with diffidence, but our convlotlons are t strong tbat Hearst is being mistreated. And that mistreatment, If continued, will ensure c tbe final defeat of Parker, even if be is nomi- . 81 Dated* 8 a Devotional Pilgrimage. d Good Mohammedans feel It a privilege no ii lees than a duty to visit Mecca, tbat their a worship may be more correct and more ac- q ceptable. Good Catholics think it the highest b religious service to goto Rome,and to loofc upon St. Peters, and to see the Pope in tbe o Vatican. Tbe devout Chinese worship their c deceased ancestors, while plain every day America^ with true hearts and noble lm- a pulses, but possessing no special religious or v fanatical ldlosyncracles, pay homage to their mother and their father while living. ' > In this town Is a good mother, the loyalty and affection of whose children 1b beautiful. We refer to the mother of Judge E. B. Gary, 9 Judge Ernest Gary, and Hon. F. B. Gary. No Spartan mother ever had greater cause ol pride In pointing to her Jewels. She has rea- q son to be proud of all her children, and lu their affection for her Is attested the best of a 8 v glorious motherhood. Two of her sons minister to her happiness every day, but Judge * ErneBt Gary lives elsewhere. He, like Judge Thomas Thomson In former years, of- f ten vlsltB his mother. Judge Thomson, to the last day of his life, paid beautiful love tribute to his mother, in bis frequent visits to her home. Judge Ernest Gary seemB equally devoted to his mother, and several times during the year comes to see her. In the wonderful success of her three sons we are reminded of a little story whicb we v read In the newspapers a long lime ago. Our I recollection of that story, which may have r been truth or fiction, is: When one of the t old Rothschilds was on his death bed be call- t ed his sons for a last talk. He told tbem to do g nothing without conferring with each other, b And, he was quoted assaying, do nothing ol y Importance without consulting your mother- o If they would observe these rules, the dying man predicted that they would become the richest men In the world. The success 01 ( Mrs. Gary's sons recalls the story of the Rothschilds, even If that story has no more a 'truth In It, than had George Washington's g hatchet story. t< f< t Kaolin Bedti. ... . J Abbeville has much kaolin of fine sample, and no better opportunity for Its manufacture & can be offered than at present. In tbe outskirts of tbe town it is known n tbat Mr. R. C. Wilson bas fine beds, and we are tola tbat be was offered $5,000 for ten acres of It, wbicb was refused. Some three miles from town Mr. Lewis W. Jackson has great quantities of it And it Is fair to presume tbat tbe intervening; space between Mr. Wilson's and Mr. Jackson's beds Is underlaid with the same valua ble mineral. Mr. Wilson discovered his in digging a well for water. The vein at Mr. ^ Jackson's comes to the surface. "A Mr. Jaokson'a vein Is In easy reach of tbe Seaboard Air Line railroad, and Mr. Wilson's is very near to tbe Seaboard shops. If It should not be deemed desirable to enter Into the manufacture of croo.kervwum could not tbe staff be mined and Bold to the candy factories and the flouring mills? Tbe known treasures of tbe eartb should not be allowed to go forever to waste. Better establish a candy factory at Abbeville, and dilute the sugar so as to prevent tbe candy from being too sweet. a Fowl Ranch. E Kg; Mr. R. C. Wilson has one of the best ar- & ranged barns In this part of the country, and T In his lot are tbe finest specimens of cattle, e( bogs and other animals. Adjoining lhls barn e his son, Mr. Courtney Wilson, has a chicken ranch, where blooded lowls of the best strains are to be lound. As for rabbits be has tbe 1 prettiest on eartb. When asked If he was not afraid tbe dogs would kill tbem, he said that s tbe dogs were anxious to do that very thing, but they couldn't catch them. Wbenonthe ll subject of running, he promised to get a few Jack rabbits from Texas to show the fox o hounds hereabout bow to run. t A 10 per cent, increase In this year s cotton acreage should mean a crop of between i 11,000,000 and 12,000,000 bales, taking last year a as a criterion.?Atlanta Constitution. 1 We have heard of increased acreage of cot-1 ton for time out of mind. We used to believe c It. But, when we read abont thousands of r white people going to the cotton mills, and *= great numbers of negroes going to the North, * ; i, while the acreage all about us of waste lands g . Increases, we think the stories of increased 1 " acreage Is Action. You will notice, too, tbat v since the grest movement of renters to the s cotton mills was inaugurated the annual crop grows less and less. 1 ; For Rent?Two houses at the one-mile poet on the road to Verdery.

We have mislaid the copy of the Chester lantern which commented on our notice of he presence of Rev. Boyce H. Grler, and his ray of pronouncing the name of the Author I if our being. He said God, not Gawd?and I he ! jRntern quotes somebody as saying that | Jawd sounded more reverent. I This Is about the first time that we have leard with reference to thr reverence or Ireverence in the use of the name in the pultit. Our testimony would he that there is carcely a trace of reverence In the pulpit in using that name. Preachers, it seems to us, are too prone to | renounce that name, and in some instances re have thought that they ought to he taken efore the Church Courts for violation of one f the Commandments. They tilk of God in bout the same way that l>?ymen would speak f George Washington, or Jim Johnson, or 'om Watson. Mr. Grier, while showing no great reverence id not make use of the Name to a great exess, and therefore, we said uothing on that core. If half dozen men are talking on the square, nd if there is anreacher among t item, are not tie chances ten to one that the preacher will >e the only one to use that Name la ordinary onversation? -A case in point. For twenty-six years the Abbeville Literary Club has held its monthly neetings with more or less regularsty. In bat time wc do not recollect to have heard hat Name in Irreverence, except when a >reacher was our guest. He "thanked God" hr snmplhln? Ihnt. had nnme his wav. Munificent Oiler, In the past, our dealings with tbe colleges n their advertising has been of an accomroolating kind. We have accepted theiroffer.in noney.and have not been exact in counting be number of times that their ads have ap>eared in the paper. But last week we had the boRs offer from tbe illeged "Religious Advertising Agency" at /linton. This agency offered us one dollar to >ubllsh a two-inch ad of Winthrop College or eight weeks, we to send two copies of the >aper during the life of the ad. We have never beeo favorably Impressed vith the act of using Masonic emblems on ;oods, nor do we approve of the act of using Religion" as a trade mark in business. The >lasonlc emblem and tbe "Religion" that is ised to boost business, are generaUy out of ilace. How would it sound to have a religious beef aarket, or a Masonic drug store ? Why an advertising agency in a purely busnees transaction should make merchandise if "Religion" Is what we do not understand' At any rate, we do not Tor a dollar, expect o advertise Winthrop College for elgbt reeks, and send two papers during the life of he advertisement. This "Religious" advertising agency 6aid lothlng as to whether the offer was net, or ess the agents commissions. But commislons or no commissions, we do not expect to Htrarf Ion (Ko W7 inth rnr* ( 11tirra frw (hlc Wall ious"agency for one cent less than we would lo If the order was sent direct from the colege. If the "Religious" ageucy will send us , check for ?5 we will publish the ad as reuested. II Mr. Johnson sends the ad we will e more apt to let him make his own terms. The mall that brought us the "Religious" fferof SI, also brought an Invitation to the ommencement of Wlnthrop. Wlnthrop is iO doubt a good college, but we don't care to ttend commencements at dollar colleges, irith "Religious" agency. Do Not Instruct. The Press and Banner does not quite agree pith the Spartanburg Herald in the matter of nstructlng delegates to the National Demoratic Convention. We think it better to anlounce our preference, but still allowing deleates to exercise their best judgment. While re would vote for Parker in the convention, et, if a majority should be opposed to him, pe would prefer unanimity, and would like o see another nominated. II .parKer s Irlenus iave alienated Heart's friends, or, if for any eason Parker should weaken the ticket, then mother name should be put forward. Printing Office Destroyed. The printing office of the Augusta Herald ?as destroyed by fire Monday night. The Chronicle has offered its plant as a tempoary home for the Herald, and the offer has teen accepted with thanks. The Chronicle ias always been a high-toned paper, and its eneroslty to Its neighbor In distress is in :eeping with its high character for all the ears of Its existence. The Chronicle is not >nly great, but It is good. ??? Eulorce the Law. Crimes against tbe person are becoming so ppalllng that-It would seem that our juries hould lor once do tbeir duty. Men are shot o death for slight provocation, and now a desnceless orphan girl In Anderson is made be subject of a brutal attack by half dozen oung men. If Solicitor Boggs 1b half the man we take Im to be, be, at least, will do bis duty. Life is about as cbeap in South Carolina as i is in the Philippines. A Good Man from Cheater. Mr, A. M. Aiken of Chester, was in town a iw days last week, and all bis old friends and ew acquaintances were glad to see him. .nd it is hoped that our folk made blm leel alf as good as be made a citizen of Abbeville iel two years ago when he went to Chester, [r. Aiken is a brother of Congressman .iken, and that is not half in his favor. The lherent qualities of his own head and heart lake him a tip top first class man, whether e has scores of kin or no kin at all. ? DUE WEST.

It wax not until M r. Gillespie smll h made a move to get off thetrain'at Calhoun Falls, that we'Observed any acquaintance In the conch. We were far on the way to Atlanta before nightfall, ami had a good opportunity tor seeing the farms along the road. They Impressed us as being unusually well prepared for the coming crops. The lands were of varying soil and richness. Pome of the country reminded ub of the garden spot of the earth through which Capt. Williams runs his train between Abbeville onrl T-lrwftroa Wo oil Ifnnuj Iho hpnnfv unci the grandeur of the landscape through which that Iron highway passes In season. Its spreading hills and far reaching fields of snowy cotton, are only equalled by the sweet fields of living green that cover the fertile bottoms. The beautv and the grace of the cnrvt-sof the purling rills together with the chatter of the babbling brooks, m ike a scene to please the eye ana to satisfy ihe soul. We refer to the charming scenery along Capt. Williams route, with which we are all acquainted, to more easily describe the scenry along the great Iron highway to Atlanta. There are places between Abbeville and Atlanta that are more beautiful than the Intervening land between Abbeville and Hodges. The number of fruit trees along the Seaboard are legion. Almott every farm has a good orchard. Not until we had nearly reached Atlanta did we speak to anybody after bidding MrGillespie Smith good-bye at Calhoun Fal's. When the lights of the distant city were to be seen peering through the darkness, an old man came and sat down on the seat lu rear of our seat. He commenced his conver saltan with: "Tbia is first train that I have been ou in along time, where I couldn't get a drink of water." I assured him that he would not have Ion; to wait, and thinking of the Journal's pictures of heavy rains and great floods, we asked him ii "At'antH's new depot had been finished." J1 ? looked dazed and said he didn't know, in a little while he said, "we will noon be in the cm shed." He said he owned valuable properly in Atlanta. In 1S72, be gave SI,800 lor a lot, paying S100 cash, and settiiug the remainder at S10 a month. He had been offered 58,000 for It, but he had the title to the property made in the names of his wife and children, and could not well sell It. He said, "It will never be worth less than it Is lo-day. 1 am disabled and the income from it, supports me." When tbe train stopped, we went to the Kimble House, but was too late for supper, and went to a restaurant for a steak. The Kimble House is a good house, but we thought Atlanta had outgrown that old establishment, and so we moved to the Piedmont Hotel, at noon on Sunday.* Sunday morning we boarded a street car, and stopped at Dr. Brougbton's tabernacle, where worshippers had already begun to arrive. The building is a very plain affair, bat large enough to seat a great company. The choir, about sixty la number took seats Id rear of the preacher's reading desk. The musicians were Id front of the choir?all facing the audience. The instruments were: a piano, a cornet, two ordinary fiddles, and a regular bull fiddle. After thumping and tightening the strings, a gentleman looking something like our own Thomas Grant Perrln, but more attenuated and more elongated came to the front, and with a rod aod both bands made various and continued sigus The music started up and it was good music, too. After giving us a voluntary, some else then called out "seventeen," and later on "thirty-seven" was announced. While the young gentlemen were tuning and thumping their fiddles we could not help from wishing that they might not be good liddlers. An irreverent gentleman once said: He never knew a good fiddler that was worth a (a blank is left here. The word might shock the nerves.) A brother in the audience was asked to say a prayer. He Informed the Lord and those of us present, that Dr. Broughton was absent, etc.l etc. Then auotber actor came on the stage. He asked everybody to Join in slnglnc : "The old time religion,'1 to which the audience responded with unction, and with great unanimity of action. The singing over, the gentleman announced that he was not a preacher, but that he would read the greatest sermon that was ever de livered. A copy of that sermon may be found in one of the old book6 about every bouse. About the first thing tbat was done, was the taking up of a collection. We put in a quarter. When the music and the staging was finished, we felt ashamed at our small contribution ami felt like we ought to have given S5. When the whole performance was over, we tnougtit tne quarter aoout ni tne case. Alter "lunch"?they call the twelve o'clock feed, lunch, at the Piedmont?we started out tor Grant Park. Mr. Lamar Rlchey, of this place, was on the car, and we boys spent the remainder of the afternoon together. After seeing the cycioraina of the battle of Atlanta, we strolled around a little, and then struck out for Oakwood cemetery. At night this editor strolled down one ol the streets, and asked a policeman if there was a church in the neighborhood. We went into Trinity Methodist church, and in the vestibule met a cordial welcome from a good brother who wanted to give us a good seat high up in the sanctuary. His cordiality and his desjre to give us a good place led us to think that he had possibly mistaken the country editor for a preacher. At this church we found a great organ?no piano, no fiddles, no cornets, and only four singers. The man in the pulpit took for his subject "Small Things,'' and he made much out of it. Lei no man suppo-e for an instant that we went to Atlanta for devotional reasons. We went to Atlanta to see the beautiful store fronts of Ilia hest. nart of t.lift oit.v nnfl we went to church to see good people and their way of conducting service. When in a strange city no place is more Interesting than the churches. If for no other reason, the sight of the handsomely dressed pretty women would ten times overpay the time and trouble of going to church. We noticed an almost entire absence of those horrid buttons which some women pin on to the back of their dresses. The only exception, as far as we noticed, was a girl who stood in front of us at the depot while waiting to take the train for home. She had two of those buttons on her dress. After a while 6he turned her face, which revealed the fact that she was a colored woman. Saturday night we strolled along the street where the prettiest ol tbeabow windows are to bo seen. Sunday morning we did the same thing. After supper on Sunday night?they call that meal "dinner" at the Piedmont?we repeated the walk. For whole blocks the moNt beautiful windows were to be seen, with light# galore. Mind you, this was Sunday night, before aDd after preaching. There didn't seem to be a single pious store among the lot. Nobody had even the pretense of a curtain by which the light might be hidden. We thought how much Abbeville was ahead 3f Atlanta in the way of religious stores. Atlanta has some elegant buildings, but 3he has many of the other sort. Some of her streets are as good as good can be, and others are not quite so good. Atlanta is the poorest place for a stranger to get Information. Policemen were Ihe politest and the best Informed men of whom we sought information. Every ending includes a solemn element. Every ending, cutting short, foresbaddows the ending, cutting short or lite. . . . When theenu is come, the endless end, the end which is the final begining, be thy word to each of us, Come. In us see the travail of thy soul, and be satisfied. To be disinterested is to be strong, aud the world is at the feet of him it cannot attempt. CANDIDATES. For (Initio of Itoiirrspiif al i v<*m. !

IT IS WITH PLEASURE "WE announce the fact that we have imiecieu aiiaugemcuia uy uiuu wcaic prepared to conduct the business of tbe "County Mutual Benefit Association of America" in Abbeville County, independent of the Parent Association whose headquarters are at Union, S. C. The purpose of the Association is to secure to the family of each member of the same who may die, one dollar for every member belonging to the Association at the time of bis or ber death. The idea in cxtenso is to take one thousand persons, men and women, bind them together in a business way to help each other in time of need and trouble. It is more like a family affair than anythiug else. You only pay when one dies. If you join now your first payment of $3.50 pays you up until first of January, 1905, unless we lose oue of our members, when you would be called on to pay one dollar and ten cents to replace the amount paid out on account of the death claim and expenses. It is unquestionably the cheapest insurance khowu of. You are receiving insurance at actual cost. Any white persons between the ages of eighteen and fifty-five, male or female, may become a member of the Association until the number of one thousand be reached; after that no oue over thirty can get in, and he only to replace a deceased member. If, therefore, you are over thirty'years of age this is tbe only chance you will have of joining. You owe it to vour fatnilv. vou owe it to yourself to provide something for their protection in case you are taken away Iron) tbera. Consider the matter, examine and study our plan, act promptly and let our agents write you up at once. Remember that this ia purely a home institution ; the money to pay death claims is in the bank at this place, being always collected in advance of a death ; the claim paid immediately on notice of death of the member; no waiting sixty or ninety days, with ever so much "red tape" to be observed in order to collect a death claim ?and that the officers of ihe compauy are your own people. If there is any additional information as to the plan desired, call on either of the undersigned or any of the company's agents and they will take pleasure in explaining the same. It. E.
