Clarence E, Gaillard, of Newry,
was in Walhalla .Monday, and during
the day was look in? alter the inter
ests of ti young lady of his commu
nity who is lu every sense of tho
word a heroine, and beyond question
worthy ol' recognition at Ibo bands
of the Carnegie Hero Commission.
li will be remembered thal about
two we? ks ago Miss Sophia Thomp
son, 17 years of tige, rescued Eva
Gregory, 18 years of age, from a
rabid dog tittil had attacked her,
choking the animal and holding it
down with her hands and knees until
tho Gregory child was freed. Miss
Thompson was severely bitten and

efforts lo save the victim of the dog's
The Newry community is unani
mous in praise of the little lady who
threw herself into Hie very jaws of
the ferocious boast to save the
younger girl. She is deserving of the
highest praise for her noble act, and
nothing could bo more appropriate
than recognition al the hands of tho
Carnegie Commission,
We <-1 i i > front the Nows and Cou
rier's report of the campaign meeting
at Conway lasi Friday the following
signillcanl opening paragraph:
There were more mean, ugly little
words used lu the course of to-day's
meeting of Hie Stale campaign ?han
in any ol' tho year, possibly in many
years. "Dirty, cowardly liar." "in
fernal scoundrel." "dirty dogs." "In
famous rascal" and such like came In
..'. >'...<.iud for :i while tho
lng sentiment all over the Slate that
the county-to-county joint debate sys
tem for candidates l'or State otil?os
has served ils day so far as public
good is concerned If indeed tho sys
tem has ever been ol' public benefit
and that its end is drawing near.
lt has come lo tho stage whore South
Carolina is bi ennially Torced to bow
ber head in shame for the low plano
upon which those seeking o Ul co pitch
the hattie.
Who is benolUed'.' Certainly not
thc public, and il Is equally certain
thal each m the candidates emerges
from lite conflict tho worse for it.
Tho system is not al fault. Its
purpose was tb.it thoso aspiring for
public office might discuss public
measures before the people, loll thom
what I bey stand for and lei the pub
lic judge between them as to which
man's principles best suit tho public
needs. Hut bow much do we hear
of ihis to-day? Almost not bin:;. The
campaign is ono of mud-slinging, vii
liflcatlon and abuse, almost trout
start to finish, and ii lhere ts any
means del is ed therefrom hy which
tho public maj judge the candidates,
it scarcely indicates ti? them which
man ls best titted for the o Ul ce to
which he seeks election, bul merely
attracts the voter's attention to t lu
faults of humanity and Indicates who
is least filled for honor and trust.
There is nothing brought out lo ele
vate the public, nothing io indicate
lo tho \oter.-. thal ;!;.c.;' aspiring lo
office are worthy ol' elevation.

A dispatch from Paris says:
Can life ho prolonged? This prob
lem is at present engaging the atten
tion of Metchnlkoff, tho winner of
the Nobel prize in France. He be
lieves thal tho present normal len
nie ol' our lives is unduly restricted,
and (bat il ought to be possible to
extend them through substantially
longer periods, ile believes that the
cause of sleep is I he aren m II la I iou
(1 tl rt M g work hours of certain toxic
substances which cause the phenome
non of sleep, and which during sloop
are removed. Similarly, he believes
thal the phenomena of old age and
normal death are produced by cer
tain oilier toxic substances gradually
and continuously accumulated. Start
ing on this basis, ho is devoting his
life lo the attempt to extend t ho
lives of others, During t he fifteenth
century the average length of life
was about twenty-three; it was a
world of youth. In our day it ls
about forty-four. Whether Metchnl
koff will live long enough to extend
this period to a hundred years is an
interesting problem.

Washington, July t.-A washing
machine which takes United States
hank notes of any denomination,
washes, starches and irons thom' as
clean and smooth as White House

junct of the Treasury Department.
It ls thc? Invention of Burgess Smith,
an Inventor in the bureau of engrav
ing and printing? and was operated in
the Treasury last Thursday for the
first time. More than 1,000 one-dol
lar notes were put through within a
half hour, and each, at the comple
tion of the process, looked Uko new.
Tho machine is still in an experi
mental stage, and has not formally
been adopted hy the department, lt
has, however, been set up in the
basemen! of the Treasury Dulldlng.
near thc money vaults, and will be
given a severe testing. Starting to
day the machine will he run seven
hours each day, during which time
it is experted by the mechanics work
ing on it that 25,000 of Uncle Sam's
cast-off bills will be rejuvenated, and
will be turned back into circulation
again as clean, bright, stiff and free
from germs as when thew were new.
Will lifTect Great Saving,
As a money saver the Treasury
Department bas great hopes. Itcosts
$13.30 to make a thousand bank
notes. lt eosts but about 50 cents
to rejuvenate the samo number,
livery day there are more than 35.
000 bills withdrawn from circulation
and destroyed. The cost of replac
ing them is $465.50, but the cost of
washing them and making them as
good as new will be hut $15.
The machine is llfteen feel, long
?ind live feet wide, anti looks some
thing like a newspaper printing
press, lt has do/.ens of rolls, many
gears anti operates with the same
clash and clang. Tho money is
placed between two eau vas belts at
one end of the machine. It runs
through a solution of laundry soap
and boiling hot water, whero lt ls
thoroughly cleansed. It then enters
another vat, in which there ls a solu
tion of stiffening material and germ
killing solution. From this vat lt ls
drawn between a gas-heated mangle,
where it is Ironed as stiff as new

the washing machine can (dean about
