By precipitating the war Germany

Speaking of silencing big guns, don't
you think the whiskey trust would like

It appeared for a time that the Ger
mans would soon be weeping because
there were no more nations to conquor,
but Mars, the god of war, seems about
to turn against Germany.
Just as the South's depleted resources
made the s??ender at Appomattox nec

to be near at hand. May it be a Wa

Before handing out the gratuitous

Should Not Cause Great Alarm.
England has modified her decision
with reference to placing cotton onjjhe.
contraband list by allowing a normal
amount of cotton to enter the ports of
neutral nations. When the contraband
was first announced it appeared that no
cotton could be exported except to
the Al?es, the purpose of the action de
claring cotton contraband being to keep
it from falling into the hands of the
Germans, who use large quantities of
the staple to make powder. - The neu
tral nations will be allowed to have
their normal consumption of cotton,
but the staple cannot be reshipped into
Germany. Considering the increased
consumption by the mills at home, the
action of England, keeping cotton from
Germany and her Allies, should not af
fect the price of cotton very materially.
Conditions have so vastly improved since
last year that our people, should not be
pessimistic over the future.
Child Labor Law Enforced.
Commissioner of Agriculture Watson
is on the alert for violations of the law
prohibiting the employment of children
of tender years. The law takes them
out of shops, mills and other places
where their bodies and minds would be
dwarfed by steady indoor employment.
Through the operations of the child la
bor law thousands of children have been
kept from cotton mills, being placed
there by indolent parents before the en
actment of the law. In Columbia sev
eral daye ago Commissioner Watson
learned that a little girl nine years
of age was employed by one of the local
theatres, being on duty until 10 o'clock
at night. The proprietors were at once
notified that the employment of the
child was a violation of law, and unless
the contract was annulled a warrant
would be issued against the offending
person or persons. The child was at
once dropped from the list of the thea
tre's attaches. The law is a good one,
and should be enforced to the letter.
Prohibition Now Popular.
Not many years ago men in public
life were afraid of prohibition. If
they were in favor of the movement,
they had little to say about it, especially
m public. However, a great change
has taken place. Many of the most
prominent men in the State are now
among the active prohibition workers.
Whenever a prohibition rally is planned
those in charge have no trouble in se
curing speakers. It is encouraging,
too, to see that those who have a part
in shaping national legislation are tak
ing up arms against the monster evil.
The following sent by the Lexington
corresponde.it to the News and Courier
shows that Congressman Lever is an
ardent supporter of State and national
prohibition, having voluntarily an
nounced that he will address a prohibi
tion rally to be held soon at Lexington,
one of the dispensary towns:
"The feature of the entire meeting at
the Court House will be the speech of
Congressman A. F. Lever-who is an
ardent, earnest and strong believer in
State and national prohibition. Mr.
Lever has never before taken the stump
in South Carolina for prohibition; but
he announced at Gilbert Thursday,
where a big prohibition meeting was
held, and where he spoke ' on cotton
and other issues of more than ordinary
interest at this time, that he would
speak on prohibition at the Court
House on Tuesday, August 31. He told
the audience that upon this occasion
he intended to 'punch holes' through
every argument advanced by those who
favor the sale of whiskey; and he in
vited every member of the audience to
come to the county seat on August 31
ahd bring their neigbors with them '

If time hangs heavy on your hands,
or if you want to avoid growing old or
unhappy, take up some new study with
a view to mastering it, music, a new j
language, shorthand, typewriting, any

not hurt you, and may be of some prac

gives a new zest-and an interest to life
