Tl'.OS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR WEDNESDAY, JULY 27. The present war has astonished the world with the indubitable fact that these United States are the most powerful in numbers and resources of all the nations of .arth. Combined with England the balance of creation couldu't hold us a candle in war or in peace. '? It is reported, says Washington correspondent of the New York Times, that Admiral Sampson will be detached from the command at Santiago and put in charge of the eastern squadron, leaving Com modore Watson to take his place. Dr. Wm. H. Whitsett, the President ot the Baptist The ological Seminary at Louisville, Ky., has tendeied his resigna tion, to take effect at the close of the next session in May, does this in the interest of peace because of the controversey that has been waged over certain points of church history held by him. The separate coach or Jim Crow car bill goes into operation on the first day of September next. Some of the railroads may do a little kicking, but the majority of them will idll gracefully into line and obey the behests of the people. Our own road, the Southern, (we live on a live lino now), has al ready made preparations for riding white folkp and niggers in differ ent coaches, but both in first class style. "Gen. Merritt.'' says one of the soldier b>ys in San Francisco, "does not put on.as much style as some of the militia captains. When he came to leave on his ship, the Newport, the other day, he did not even take a carriage from his hotel to the dock but climbed on a street car and paid a a nickel for the ride. After he got on board he waved off all those who were trying to make a great ceremony out of his departure, and said to the steamer captain : 'Come on ; let's get out of thi?V Then he waved his handkerchief to some good-looking women on the dock and went into his cabin to unpack his grip." Watterson's "Wider View." Editor Henry Watterson is fired with the ambition for territorial expansion and with his usual picturesque vigor in advocacy of that departure to which, in spite of the strong arguments against it, and by the force of circumstances possicly, we are evidently tend ing. In a recent editorial he says : "If Louisiana, why not Texas? If Texas, why not California? And, with Texas, California, and Hawaii why not Cuba, Porto Rico, and the Philipines? We are 80,000,000 of energetic, aspiring, ambitious Americans. Presently we shall be 150,000,000,. Can any thought ful man believe that this tremen dous force may be isolatod from the movements of mankind and fed on sowens like their grand fathers of the revolution? As well might one look to see them return to kneebreeches and ruined shirts, and, in place of the battleships, to send the start and stripes to sea upon a mizzenmast a little elevated over a birch canoe. The Spanish war was not ex pected or desired, but impelled by hands invisible, it was upon us before we knew it, and it will leave us a pretty bag to hold. Shall we rip this bag open and empty its contents, or shall we adjust our selves to them and, so adjusting ourselves, administer the obliga tions they will impose the best we know how? "But even if we should wish to escape them, how can we? We shall havo to reckon with the armies which have won them. Is it nothing to have set such armies in the field? We shall have to reckon with the commerce of the country, always enlarging, and seeking outlets. Is it nothing to add $10,000,000 or $12,000,000 to the free trace area of America? We shall have to reckon with the rekindled pride oi the nation. Is it nothing to compel the respect of other nations? We cannot sink our ships and extinguish our navy. Nor can we relegate ourselves to the rear of the advancing column of civilization which is moving be yond our own borders. Already ?we are grown too etrong to be let alone in case we seek the isolation of which we hear so much, and he who thinks we have no duties be fore us as a nation and as a people except to grow rich and fat, and so to mortify withal, recks little either the work of God or the ways of man."

SEHTE Y IS OM READY TO STRIKE. Plans for Capture and Occu pation Agreed Upon. CONCERTED ATTACK WEI BE MADE. Commanders of Fleet and Army Decide Upon Plan of Cam paign - Simultaneous Attack Upon City by Land and Sea Forces. With Admiral Dewey's Fleet, Manila Bay, July 21, via Hjng Kong, July 24.-The regiment of Colorado's troops forming a part of General Greene's command ha? been removed from the transport China, in which it made its journey from San Franciso, to the newly formed American camp near Malate. There it confronts the last Spanish outpost which blocks the entrance to Manila from the south and which has long resisted the onslaughts of the insurgents. The remaining troops of the last detachment will be taken from the transports as rapidly as possi ble to positions around Manila preparatory to a concerted attack on the city by Admiral Dewey's fleet and the American land forces. Since the~news was received here of the destruction of Admiral Cervera's fleet at Santiago and of the return of Admiral Camara's ships to Spain, the present time has been considered the best for a movement on Manila to compel its surrender. Conferences have been held by Admiral Dewey with Generals Anderson and Greene, and a plan has been outlined lor the capture and occupation of the cit}- which has the approval of those commanders. Recent visits of the British consul to the flagship Olympia indicate that a final demand for the surrender of the Spanish garrison is con templated, the British consul acting as mediator between the Americans and the Spanish authorities. Most of the troops now in camp at Cavite will be advanced at once t} the front to take part in the important work in hand. Dispatches from Washinton are expected tomorrow, and these are likely to decide as to the program to be carried out. The Spanish soldiers in Manila are being deceived by the war council, which has charge of the city's defences. They expected Camara's fleet to arrive July 15, and now they are looking for it to appear at any moment and give batle in the bay to the ships of Admiral Dewey. There is great activity among the insurgents, and it is evident that General Aguinaldo desires if possible to take Manila before the Americans move against the city, and thus increase greatly his claims for consideration. In a battle at Malate on the 16th. inst, the insurgents suffered a loss of lo killed. The Spanish soldiers made a desperate sortie and gain ed the insurgents' trenches, but in the subsequent fighting they were routed. The German cruiser Cormoran is expected to return soon with dispatches to the German admiral which may close the trouble be tween Dewey and Von Didrichs or may further complicate it. A DREAM WARNING. An Incident Related by Mr. Wallace G. Addison. Mr. Wallace G. Addison, has just returned from a trip north and east and he is relating a story that is indeed interesting. Mr. Addison, on hiB way south, stopped over a few days in Philadelphia, and while there call ed on friends. He learned that it was by a strange coincidence that they were in the city when he call ed, and indeed had things gone as they at first intended they may have been drowned when the steamer LaBourgogne was sunk by the Crowmartyshire. The gentleman and his wife had intended taking a trip to Europe for the summer, and had engaged passage on the steamer which off the banks met so horrible a fate. Three days before they were to leave for New York to go aboard she told her husband that she could not sail on the Bourgogne. The uight before she had a dream and in it she saw a terrible disaster. The ship was in collision. She saw the decks crowded with frantic people and saw men fighting the women and children back from theboats. She declared that she would not leave home. The lady was aimost in a fit of nervous prostration and it was necessary to send for a physician. She gjt better, but refused to make the voyage. Her husband went to New York and cancelled the booking.-Augusta Chronicle, HE HAD TO GO. "If 1 should go to war," be cried. "And mingle in the fray, I fear that some one else might come And win your heart away. 'Tis not that I lack courage, love, Believe me, but that fear Of being robbed of yon, sweetheart. That makes me linger here." ''Then put your fear away," she said. "And go and get your gun Go, mingle in the fray and help To make the Spaniards run ; I've formed a resolution, and I'll tell it unto thee I want to be a warrior's love, No stay at home forme.'" Important to Depositors, Congressman Fleming seems always to have his eyes open to the interests of the people and the public conveninence cud has secured a ruling from the retinue department on one point in the tax act that will prove of wide spread importance and benefit. In a letter to his brother, who is president of the Commercial bank in this city, Congressman Fleming sends the ruling referred to, and it will be received with pleasure not only by the banks here but elswhere, and by the army of depositors who are worried at hav ing to affix a stamp every time they desire to draw a few dollars out of bank for their own use. Here is the ruling by the depart ment: "If a bank takes money on deposit, and pays it out in partial payments to a depositor upon his signing a receipt (coutaining no words constituting an order for the payment of money) it does not require a stamp under this act. ' The effect of this ruling is to enable depositors to go to bank and sigu a receipt for any 6um they desire paid over to them from their deposit account and be reliev ed of the uecessity of stamping the receipt. This does not refer of course to checks issued to a third party. These are negotiable papers and mvst be stamped. Let us illustate. Suppose A has money in bank and owes a number of small accouuls that he is accustomed to pay on a certain day in each mouth. If he payB off Tom, Dick, and Harry with cheeks when they come in to pre sent their accounts he must put a stamp upon each check. If, how ever, he steps over to the bank in advance and draws out a suffcient sum from his deposit to settle all these accounts he can give the bank a receipt for the sum, with out a stamp on it, and carry the money to his office where he can pay the accounts of Tom, Dick and Harry in cash.-Augusta Chroni cle. Molly Obeyed Orders. In his Fourth of July oration at Spartanburg, S. C., Senator Mc Laurin interpolated this : Senator Bate of Tennessee told me an aneodote of Col. Tom Sumter that I have never seen in print. Sumter was a great, big, giant of a fellow,'with a voice like a foghorn. It is said his "holler" could be heard for miles. On one occasion when he was off on a foray the Tories came and captured his wife, Molly, and stripped the plantation of everything. When "Old Tom" came home and found "Molly" gone his rage knew no bounds. Gathering together such forces as he could he put after the Tories. He overtook them on the third day and hung about until midnight. Then he deployed his forces around the camp and told them to await his orders to fire. He was afraid of "Molly" being shot in the melee, so when he got everything ready he opened his big mouth and let out a yell that fairly made the earth tremble. "Lay down, Molly ! Lay down, Molly," and Moily, recogniz ing those stentorian tones, fell prone on her face, and, after the last, "Lay down, Molly," came the command fire and charge. Molly was re-captured w:thout hurt.

Washington, July 25.-While it is known that Gen. Miles has arrived in Porto Rican waters, nothing has been heard directly from him and the department cannot announce whether or not he has commenced a landing. Un?esa he meets the enemy in great force he will make a landing as quickly as possible. To keep the men aboard ship during the present hot weathei in the tropical climate would prove a hardship which will be obviated if possible Judging" a Cow. Andrew J. Fuller in th9 In dependent gives the following! points to be observed in the) selection of a cow; The model cow should have a | small, clean, rather long head, tapering toward the muzzle. The mouth should be large and bioad, the eye bright aud spark ling, but placid in expression with no indication of wildness. The horus should be small, short, tapering, yellowish and glistening. The neck should be small, thin and tapering toward the head, but thickening when it approaches the fhoulders; the dewlaps small.] The fore-quarters small when compared with the hind-quarters. The barrel large. Each rib should project further than the preceeding one up * to the loins. She should be well formed across the rib3 and in the rump. The spine, or backbone should be straight and long, the udder large in propo.tionto the size of the animal, and the skin thin with soft, loose folds extending well back, the milk veins, especially those under the belly, should be large and prominent. After selecting a good cow make the most ot her. A French writer says that by inducing cows to drink more water the quantity of milk yielded can be increased without injuring the quality. He asserts that the amount of milk is proportional to the amount of water drunk. In experimenting with cows fed in the stall with dry fodder, that gave only nine to twelve quarts of milk a day, that | when this dry food was moistened with from 18 to 23 quarts of water daily, their yield of milk increased up to 12 to 14 quarts a day. Besides this water taken with the food, the cows were allowed to drink the aame aB before, >nd their thirst was excited by adding a little salt to the fodder. The milk was of good quality and the amount of butter saisfactory. He found, by a series of observations, that the quantity of water habitually drunk by each cow was a criterion to judge of the quantity of milk that she would yield. A cow that does not drink as much as 27 quarts of water a day, is a poor milker, giving only five and a half to seven quarts a day ; but all the cows which drank as much as fifty quarts of water daily gave from 14 to 23 quarts of milk daiy. He believes the amount of water drunk by a cow is a test of her value as milker. "Wheeler at Santiago. "Gen. Wheeler started on the two miles' journey to the front in au ambulance. About half way to the front be met rome litters bearing wounded. The veteran, against the protest of the surgeons, immediately ordered his horse, and after personally assisting the wounded into the ambulance, mounted and rode onward. "The men burst into frantic cheers, which followed the general all along the line."-Correspond ence New York Tribune. Into the thick of the fight he went, palid and sick and wan, Borne in an ambulance to the front, a ghostly wisp of a man : But the fighting soul of a fighting man, approved in the long ago. Went to the front in that ambulance, and the body of Fighting Joe. Out from the front they were coming back, smitten of Spanish shells Wounded boys from the Vermont hills and the Alabama dells : "Put them into this ambulance: I'll ride to the front," he said : And he climbed to the saddle, and rode right on, that little old ex Confed. From end to end of the long blue ranks rose up the -inging cheers, And many a powde.-blackened face was furrowed with sudden tears, As with Hashing eyes and gleaming sword, and hair and beard of snow, Into the hell of shot and shell rode little old Fighting Joe 1 Sick with fever and racked with pain, he could not stay away, For he heard the song of the yester years in the deepmouthed cannon's bay He heard in the calling song of the guns there was work for him to do, Where his country's bc.,t blood splash ed and flowed 'round the old Red, White, and Blue.

Issues all Forms of Policies at Lowest Possible Rates Consistent with Safety. AND without making special medtion of each of its many popu lar plans of insurance, we desire to invite the careful examina tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROVIDENPS TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN. Twenty yea-s is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as well as in other, lousiness transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public. When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle ment which he can make at the md of twenty years. Experience ?nd statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued longer thau the twenty-year period. Men take on large line3 of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing up and beiug^educated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi ness activity. It covers the time when their families and business in terests require^the greatest amount of protection. A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared. In view of these facts, The Provident Savings issues a policy at a fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than ont-half the premiums charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wants insur ance for proteciion only, this policy will supply his wants admirably. He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a future which he may never reach ; especially when he has need for this deposit, and more, too, in his business. To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30 takes one of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term rates of $14.91 per annum for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after twenty years, without medical re-examination, at rates for the age tnen~attamed;---? B. R. DHRISOE, SPECIAL AGENT Jau. 24, '98._EDGEFfELP, S. O. GEO. P.
