If a man empties his purse

it away from him. An invest

The crop of "sweet girl gradu
ated' seems to be quite prcniisiog
io ?pite of the April frost and ice.
May has appeared upon the
scene wreathed iu smiles. Let us
hope she will make amends for
the naughty cocduct of April.
The only "proof" that those who
witnessed the emptying of the
contraband liquor can testify to,
is that it was fir9 proof. It would

Thousands of acres of cottoti was

It's a difficult matter to keep
soul a?d body together these early
spring days. The gardens afford
practically nothing and chickens
are just out of the shell. Edge
field hasn't even a bakery to
lighten the burdens of the house
keepers. Therefore, the average
tri-daily menu is literally "hog
and hominy," with a little "cow"
added occasionally for a change.
Io view of the fact that whiskey
has caused much human blood to
be unlawfully spilled upon Edge
field's public square in the gory
days of yore, it was peculiarly
gratifying to see au officer of the
law empty five gallons of the dam
nable stun! on the same public
square on Monday. Better have a
lawful spilliog of whiskey than
for it to cause the unlawful spill
ing of human blood.

Botter Stay on a Farm?
The writer'was riding in a bug
gy ? few day a ago in company
with a young mau who ie working
every day on his father's* farm.
The young man had his dreams,
tor in the course, of ^conversation
he told of his desire ta be a phy
sician. He is a bright young fel
low, and " has attended school
enough to havs laid the founda
tion for a college course.
Finally he said: "What do you
think of a boy's chance on the
farm?" The answer was, "Good,
very good, if he will go about t>
bea leader; if he will take an
acre of grouud and make it grow
more pea-vines than an acre ever
grew before, he will be doing
something thatisaltogeth9r worth
while." The young man replied:
"That's so, and it^ is such a free
life, even if the work ?9 hardV
Several things have conon to
mind since that conversation ; tbe
sumptuous country dinner, for one
thing. It was a dinner of tender
turnip salad, baked wild duck,
baked chicken, eggs, butter, but
termilk, creamy biscuit, canued
peaches and cake, i np way these
were some cf the articles on the
table in that country home. And
it was good ! All of it was good. It
is impossible to forget to bring
in the question of good, whole
some food, pure water aud pure
air in this questiou of staying on
the farm or of leaving it for the
life of the physician. Better stay
on the farm. lu the long run it
will afford more real contentment
j and a better living.-Union
The most impressive peace
speech that has been made in
modern times was that of Sena
tor? Sherman consisting of three
words, when be said "War is
The wholesale clearing of wood
lands by saw mill operators and
cotton growers is. telling on tbe
crops. Wherever early corn has
been -protected from the cold
winds by timber belts it looks
well, wherever exposed planting
over has been necessary. The
sweeping winds, loaded with
sand, have been more injurious
than the low temperature.-Barn
well People. -
The lest of successful govern
ment with some is bow much
mi ney comes into the public
treasury through dispensar iee.
The test with others is how much
money stays in the pockets of the
people through prohibition. It is
largely a question between drun
kenness and public revenue on
one hand and sobriety and indi
vidual prosperity on the other.
I The coroner of^Bichland coun
ty need make no apology for hold
ing a material witness in a mur
der case, however inconvenient it
may be to the witness. A $500
bond seems small ; no bond should
be accepted if there is belief it is
given to be forfeited. It is time
every officer of the law realized
the stern obligations of bis office.
He is to discharge his obligations
without fear or favor. He knows
no persons, and is in no way re
sponsible for the predicament of
those that violate the Jaw.-yThe
About forty homicides have oc
curred in Cherokee county since
its organization ten years ago, a?d
its a fact worthy of note that tbe
first person to pay the death pen
alty was a white mau who was a
native of the county. This is not
saying that others should not
have been convicted, but it's a
healthy sign that the juries of the
county have arrived at the point
where they are showing a proper
regard for the rights of its citi
zens. Surely this will be a lesson
and will cheok the flow of blood
in this county.-Gaffney Ledger.
A man who does not love his
work, official or otherwise, and
who does not conscientiously put
his whole heart and soul into that
work, is unfit for that position or
calling, regardless of tho salary
paid him. Honesty to one's self,
ind honesty to the public COD fi- j
ience demands true aud earnest
jffort. With the exception of ju
rors and witnesses, no one, in this |*
ree land of ours, is conscripted
nto any kiud of public ^rvice; 1
