Court of General Sessions

Show us a town that is not
concerned about the educa

We salute the Baptist
churches of Johnston and
Ridge Spring. At the recent
Ridge association these two
churches voluntarily agreed

amount of $500. This should
be an incentive to the
churches and individuals who
are liot doing their full duty.
The one night corn and bun

When a man and woman
are willing and anxious that
their souls shall have a single
thought and their hearts beat
as one the "world, flesh and
the devil," not to mention
parents, can't keep them from
getting married. Even dis
tance avails nothing. A few
days ago a couple were mar
ried over a long distance tele
phone, the bride being in
' Philadelphia and the groom
in New York.
Who said that a school

The Augusta Chronicle has
with one fell swoop made a
high dive into the half a hun

that are veritable hot-beds of
vice and crime. We com

that you will winy for thrice

A large colony of French
Canadians, who are a thrifty
and sturdy people and will
make excellent citizens, will
soon settle near Summerville,
S. C. Wouldn't it be a great
thing for our old county
could we attract such a class
of people hither? Hundreds
of families could settle
throughout the length and
breadth of our county and
still we would have room for
hundreds of others.
EYES AND EARS.
Some people have eyes and
see not, while others have
ears aud hear not. Frequent
ly individuals who are known
to be eye witnesses to fist?
cuffs and other personal en
counters go straightway and
swear that they know nothinp
of the affair. But the case
which caps the climax was
one which occurred in Char
leston a few days ago. A
difficulty arose between two
men in a room, during which
four pistol shots were fired,
and a third man who was in
the room swore that he was
asleep and did not hear any
report of a pistol. Verily
some men are liars or have
accommodating ears. If this
is a typical Charleston wit
ness no wonder that the "ti
gers" go Scott free.
The South- day-by-day is
becoming a more potent fact
or in national and inter nation
al affairs. In former years it
has been the policyjof the Re
publican administration to
keep the government funds
j in the national banks through
out the north, only a few
southern banks being select
ed as government deposito
ries. More southern banks
are now being named as gov
ernment depositories than ever
before, among the latest be
ing the National Loan and
Exchange bank of Columbia.
The south would never
lack for funds to move the
cotton crop if the government
would place m ore of its idle
mi liions with the southern
banks. And why not?
Equal rights should be ac

I A picture sad enough to
make the heart of Ja strong
man sink_within him
Dr?hg tears to the eyes of an
gels, could be seen upon the
streets Saturday last. A
bright boy, not yet out, of his
teens, who resides not* many
miles from - Edgefield, was
reeling and staggering
maudlin drunk. Doing no
one any harm, however, ex
cept himself. It is sad to see
a mar? of mature years en
thralled by the demon, strong
drink, but it is a thousand
times sadder to see a tender
youth fall victim of this evil.
Who can blame the boy?
While his mother isa refined,
cultured, affectionate, Chris
tian woman, his father has
been a confirmed drunkard
for years and the boy is only
doing what he has so often
seen his father do. God pity
the mother ! God help the
father ! God save the boy !
Reader, if you are the father
of|a family and God has bless
ed your home with a bright
boy, is your daily walk and
conversation such as you
would have that of your boy
to be? Are you helping the
wife of your bosom to train
your children or does your
example counteract her ef
forts to teach them aright?
Think on these things.
