You work a week for $ J 0.00.
That ten dollars represents a week of your life
work. You are a week older, and as the weeks,
months and years go by your strength is gradually
exhausted; you have put your strength into dollars.
What nave you done with these dollars? Have
iou spent them as fast as you earned them? If you
ave. you are poor indeed; but if you have spent only
a patt of the dollars, and kept some of them, you have
in these dollars stored -up energy and strength to
provide for you in your ola' age.
How much better still is your position if you hive
put these saved dollars to work for you 1
A good way to do this is to deposit them in some
good, strong bank.
The Westminster Bank,
Westminster, S- O.,
is a good place to put these dollars.

McManlgal Found Oldld Playing with
80 Stielt? of Explosive!
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 22.-Ortio
B. McManlgal'8 story of finding his
little daughter In tho kitchen of his
Chicago home playing with eighty
one-pound sticks of dynamite, which
he had left on a radiator to thaw,
was told hy him at the "dynamite
conspiracy" trial to-day. Tho dyna
miter testified that ho and James B.
McNamara had gone to Chicago io
blow up non-union work in February,
1911, but when they reached Chicago
from Indianapolis they found the ex
plosive frozen.
At James D.'s suggestion ho put
tho dynamite on a radiator and went
to look over the proposed job. When
he returned he said his little daugh
ter was on tho floor with tho dyna
mite and James B., tho Los Angeles
Times dynamiter, was testing a bat
tery on tho doorbell.
"James B. laughed when ho saw
my little girl toying with tho explo
sive," said McManlgal.
"He said, 'Tell papa what that
ls.' My little girl replied, 'Why, lt's
dynamite. I know lt won't hurt me,'
and kept on playing.
"She said she had seen boys in a
vacant lot kicking nbout sticks that
looked like dynamite. Tho way J.
B. laughod made me mad and I or
dered him out of tho house."
I McManlgal said when ho and
I James B. went to South Chicago they
found the glare of nearby furnaces
so brilliant they did not do as much
damage ns they intended, placing
only two bombB instead of four.
Witness Intimidated.
Joseph Schwartz, Chicago, was ar
rested this afternoon charged with
attempting to obstruct justice by in
timidating Cornelius L. Crowley, of
Monica, Pa., a government witness In
tho dynamite cases. Crowley said
Schwartz, in the 'presence of a de
tectivo, told him not to testify to
the truth.
Stealing 1,200 pounds of dyna
mite, hiding lt in a shed at Tiffin,
Ohio, and then In suit cases trans
porting it on passenger trains to In
dlanapolis was an, experience, also re
lated by McManlgal.
Confident that.tho agitation over
tito I*)s Angeles . explosiona would
"blow over" and that James B. Mc
namara would be ablo to do moro
"Jobs," McManlgal added, plans wore
begun In January, 1911, to carry on
the dynamite campaign with zest.
"When I reported to J. J. McNa
mara how easy it had been to steal
tho dynamite from a stone quarry at
Bloomvllle, Ohio, and store lt In my
father's shed at Tiffin, ho was pleas
ed," said McManlgal. "I brought
him several suit cases of dynamite as
a sample and he locked lt up In a
vault, nt the office of the International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Iron Workers. J. J. said he would
send James B. vor to help mo carry
lt. We brought lt in such quantities
that J. J. said he could not store it
all at tho Iron workers' office. We
had about 1,200 pounds."
Will Propose a Two-Cent Rate for
Inter-StRito Travel.
Lynchburg, Va., Nov. 23.-A reso
lution proposing a two-cent passen
ger rate, to be operative In South
Carolina, will bo offered for adoption
to tho railroad commission of South
Carolina by Col. John ?. Richards,
Jr., at an early date. Col. Richards,
who was in attendance upon the Con
vention of tho National Association
of Railway Commissioners authorized
this statement to-day.
A resolution was offered to-day to
tho convention by Col. Richards to
have tho Inter-State Commerce Com
mission consider the matter of dis
crimination in regard to mileage
book travel limited In tho United
States and to have it pass a uniform
rule governing the ?iso of mileage
by roads In the several States, The
debate waxed warm and ellcitod
much favorablo comment, but was
finally rejected.
in an interview Col. Richards said:
"Every effort was made to get relief
for the people of South Carolina.
Prior to tho convention I had written
to the president Of every road in
South Carolina, wherein I requested
them to reinstate the Inter-changea
ble mileage, which' was only discon
tinued after the passage of the rocont
act of the Legislature regarding pu li
ing of mileage on trains.
"Some of these officials answered,
some did not. The result was not
satisfactory. As a last resort I en
deavored to have our National Asso
ciation get us relief through tho ln
ter-Stato Commerco Commission.
Having failed in this, I am now In
favor of tho establishment of a two
cent rate for Intor-State travel, and
I will at an early dale proposo a reso
lution carrying into effect this plan.
I consider the railroads unjust to
their South Carolina patrons In tho
discontinuance of tho interchangeable
mileage. lt ls nothing moro than
spilo work." 4.
