?Money is Power !
Labor is Power !
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
you spent them ?s fast as you earned them? If you
nave, you are poor indeed; but if you have spent only
a part of the dollars and kept some of them, you have
in these dollars stored up energy and strength to
provide for you in your old age.
How much better still is your position if you have
put these saved dollars to work for you !
A good way to do this is to deposit their iq some
good, strong bank.
The Westminster Bank,
Westminster, S. O.*
is a good place to put these dollars.

Robert F. f,cott and bis party were
overwhelmed by a blizzard on their
return journey from the South Pole,
and the ei.tire party perished. They
reached t ie South Pole on the-18th
of January, 1912.
The ne vs of the appalling disas
ter which befell Capt. Scott and his
companions was brought to this port
by a signaled message from the
Terra Nova, ihe vessel Which had
carried the explorer and his exped?
tion to the Antarc'c, and which lf'-e
last year went once ?C^ain fc the
south to bring him and his compan
ions back.

Capt. Scott's main traveling party
was to consist of sixteen men be
sides himself, while groups of four
men each were to return at different
stages of the journey, leaving Scott
and four others to complete tho final
dash to the pole. This would indi
cate that some of the members of the
party who had been left at the vari
ous bases were not included among
the YlcUms of tho divas**? and thal
it was they who communicated to the
w orld the fate of the expedition.
The Terra Nova sailed on June 1,
1910, for New Zealand and the South
Pole. It was joined by Capt. Robert
F. Scott a few days later at Cardiff.
The expedition consisted of twenty
eight officers and scientists in addi
tion to a crew of twenty-three picked
men from the British Royal Navy.
Reports were current at the time
the Terra Nova sailed for the Antarc
tic, on December 14, 1912, to bring
back the Scott party, that some of the
members of the relief expedition had
expressed grave doubts as to whether
Capt. Scott and his fellow explorers
would ever return. No reason was
given for these doubts, but they
were freely expressed.
Mrs. Scott left London Ave weeks
ago for New Zealand to meet her
husband there.
The last direct word received from
Capt. Scott himself was brought by
the commander of the Terra Nova
from the southern ice regions, when
she returned to Akaroa, New Zea
land, on March 31, last year. The
brief message was in Capt. Scott's
own handwriting, and said:
"I am remaining in the Antarctic
for another winter In order to con
tinue and complete my work."
Capt. Scott had shortly before sent
back a report to his base at McMurdo
Sound, showing that on January 3,
1912, ho had reached a point 150
miles from the Pole and was advanc
ing toward his destination.

and 8 strong detachment of loyal
troops, is fortified in the national pal

on the loyalty of Gen. Blahquet, who

President Will Veto Measure on Cou- *
sv i< ut ional Grounds.
Washington, Keb. 10.-The Webb
bill to prohibit the Inter-State ship
ment of liquor Into dry States for
purposes of sale "or In an., manner
used" in violation of the State laws,
was passed by tho House Saturday
evening by a vote of 240 to 65.
The passage of the bill ended one
of the most stubbornly fought all-day
contests of this Congress. Senator
Kenyon, of Iowa, author of the Sen
ate measure of the same goon ral pur
port, sat in the House most of the
day watching thc light, which opened
with a contest over tho rule to bring
up tho Webb bin. Representatives of
organized anti-saloon organizations
sat in tho members' galleries and
kept tally on tho roll calls.
"Loaded al Roth Bads,"
Washington, F?b. ll.-Tho re
port that President Taft will veto the
Webb bill, which prohibits tho ship
ment in inter-State commerce of
whiskey intended for salo in "dry"
territory, created a stir among Demo
cratic Senators and Congressmen dur
ing yesterday afternoon.
The bill passed the House on Sat
urday by an overwhelming non-par
tisan vote, and passed the Senate yes
terday afternoon by a viva voce vote,
being substituted for the Kenyon
Sheppard bill, which had been report
ed to tho Senate.
Governor Wilson, lt ls said, recog
nizes that, the Inter-State liquor sill,
as the legislation ls called, is "load
ed" at both ends, and he hoped to get
lt out of the way In order that nei
ther he nor the Democratic adminis
tration under bira 'would be embar
rassed by its consideration.
The report that President Taft will
veto the bill 1B accepted genorally as
being correct, and the Democrats are
worried because they fear that lt will
?>e impossible to pass the bill over
the President's veto. This means, et
course, that the question will be re
vived and injected into tho Wil#o?
It ls believed that two-thirds of the
House will vote to over-ride the Pres
ident's veto of this measure, but ibero

will veto the bill on constitutional
grounds, it is understood. He is said
to share the belief of Senators Root
and Sutherland that the bill is un
questionably unconstitutional, and
?that its passage by Congress simply
shifts the burden of responsibility for
its final defeat from thc ohoulders of
politicians to the Supreme Court.

nent in Fight for Prohibition.
Sumter, Feb. ll,-The people of
Sumter were shocked and saddened
to hear of thc finding of the dead
body of Joel E. Brimson alongside the
railroad track near New Sumter, a
station on the Atlantic Coast Line
railroad, about five miles from Sum
ter, where he had dropped when re
turning from his farm io that place
to take the train home.
Mr. Brimson was a well known and
highly esteemed citizen of this city
and was well known throughout the
State because of his fight against th?
liquor traffic. He ran for Governor
twice, the second time In 1906 on the
prohibition ticket. He was also pub
liai ar and editor of The Broad Axe,
the official organ of the prohibition
party in South Carolina, for a num
ber of years, In which he continued
his fight for prohibition.
Mr. Brimson left home with his
wife on an early morning train. He
got off at New Sumter to go to his
farm several miles further on, while
his wife went on to Mayesville to
spend tho day with her daughter.
Wbon returning from his farm, where
some work was going on, he droppd
dead by the railroad track. It was
stated by a member of the family to
day that members of the family had
tried to dissuade him from this trip,
but he said he was compelled to go,
as he had not been out to see about
the work in several dayr..
The deceased started out in life as
a printer In the old Watchman and
Southron office. This was du-ing the
war, in which he wa too yov .ng to
serve actively in the field, although
ho was1 a member of the reserves and
ready to servo at home at any time.
Later he entered Into the lumber
business, in which he was interested
up to the time of his death. He was
also Interested for the past few years
in farming.
