oman 's Home Companion.
A New York business man says that
he nce had in his employ as office
boy a lad named Magillicuddy. Nat
urally enough this youngster received
so many joking references about his
name from his fellow employees that
he became extremely dissatisfied with
it. So when he applied for a place
under another employer in the build
ing he evidently decided to bestow
a new name upon himself. When the
man to whom he applied asked him
his name the boy replied:
'That's an odd name,'' said the
man after having the. lad repeat it
The bof looked surprised. ''Have
n 't you heard of General Capitula

''Why his name is in all the re
men i un RIank's office.''
THOSE NEW SCHEDULES.
The Railroad Commission Want A
Reason From Southern-Com
mission Is Right.
The railrad commission. says Sat
irdav's Giltumbia Record, sent the
following to Superintendent Williams,
Assistant (eneral Passenger Agent
Brooks Mr;-an and Division Pas
sen!er Agent R. W. Hunt:
Dear Sir: You will remember that
at a conference held in this office on
the 16th of Mereh.;a'>partial agree
ment was reached whereby the sehed
Iles on the C. and G. road were
chanzed to take effect about the 10th
Numerous complaints and inquiries
are coming into this office in regard
to the status of the case. Will you
please notify this commission what
your purpose is regarding this mat
ter? The opinion of this commicsion
is that the agreement should be cor
ried out unless shown to the commis
sion that it would be unwise to make
J. H. Wharton,
The railroad commission is right.
If the change of schedul, agreed upon
is to be left to the petitions then let
it be known and some good long peti
tions could be presented. There are
lots of people in Greenwood and An
derson who would like to see the
change and petitions could secure
signers in both these communities
asking for the change. And besides
Anderson is not on the Columbia and
Greenville division anyway. We are
glad to see that Columbia is at last
waking up. If a primary election is
to decide just call the election and we
will get there with the votes, all the
way from Greenville to Columbia.
The fact is the railroad commission
prQmised that if the proposed sched
ule 'was held up for any - cause we.
would be given a hearifig before any
change was made from the one agreed
upon at that meeting in Columbia on
March 16. If the commission will
stand up and ask for the arrangement
for the change of schedule agreed up
on to be made effective the railroads
will make the change.

Gov. Guild's Stammering Story.
.Gov.. Guild of Massachusetts tells
this story': e
In Tremont street there used to be
a stammering college kept by Prof.
Graves. Next door to this college was
a flower store. Prof. Graves' method
was to ask each pupil what phrase
he would like to learn to say perfect

the pupil on that one phrase or sen
One day a friend of mine, who was
afflicted with the stuttering habit, de
ided to patronize the professor. Be
fore he went into the studio, however,
he stopped to look in the flower store
at some very handsome yellow chrys
anthemums. Then he went up stairs
to see the professor.
"Now, my dear fellow,'' said Prof.
Graves, "is there anything particular
you would like to learn to say perfect
"W-w-w-well, y-yes, th-thei'e is,''
said the stammerer.. :" I sh-sh-should

Aunt Emmneline is the best loved
woman in Saymouth, for her charity
is alike of hand and';.:heart. Like
many other excellentppersons, Aunt
Emeline is not a ehurch' member,
but she is a regular attendant at the
village church, which is near her cot
tage as to seem under. the same roof.
When, at the close .of a recent* ser
mon, the: minister reqwsted all those
present who had never uniited with the
church to retire, everybody was sur
prised to see Aunt Emmeline rise and
start down the aisle.
"Aunt Emmeline,'' the minister
called softly, P that does not apply to
"That isn 't why IF m going,'' Aunt
Emeline responded -serenely. "I
