Running with the hare and hunting j

?Anderson Intelligencer.
That is true. It may win a brief j
vi-ctory but it is always best to -come j
out in the open. The people will find j
you out. It may wrork for -a brief i
period but sooner or later you will be1
caught and then you will feel bad. j
Eetter be honest and straight in polities
as in everything else. ?
"Wonder if it is really true that som>
6t>,-000 voters in South Carolina ap

prove of lawlessness ana iavor a wmt
open State as The State says. It is
a "pretty severe arraignment of a majority
of the white men of South
Carolina. It certainly looks like
Blease is going to be elected governor
for another term which will give him j
a third term.
Pitv Ohanman could not ha\e got
ten a few more votes and then Newterry
would have bad a solicitor and
a -congressman. Newberry has a record
for having furnished solicitors
and judges especially supreme court
judges. We doubt if another county j
in the State has such a record and

from this district. lA-nd we "believe'
tbrat Newberry is going to do the;
handsome thing for him by giving
him a very large vote. That is what
should do, now, honest, Mr. Voter
<?/vn'+ vou think so? Remember that
Fred Dominick leads all the rest in
'Newberny in the first primary and not
only so but lie leads them all in the
great county of Anderson which had
two Anderson men in the race and he
leads in that otlrer great county of
Pickens and that he lacks only a 150
votes of being equal to Mr. Aiken in

The papers are talking' about the
vote in the recent primary being some
$,-000 anti-Blease. It looks to us that
you could say with as much truth and
reason that the vote shows some 53,000
anti-Manning strength.
It is not fair to claim that the issue
is now prohibition or liquor. That
is not the issue. There are good and
true prohibitonists on both sides.
Let us deal fairly. It pays to speak
the truth.

Why the 3roncho Jumped In'Kls Wild
Race at Midnight.
A former herdsman reiatts a thrill- i
5?wr 1.1.1: <iviiniMAiin/i 1 with I
a stampede of cattle, lie was taking a j
herd of -Hhi steers^to Leadville and had ;
camped tor the night on Uear river. 1
near its junction with the Little Snake, i
At midnight, when he went on guard. ;
all was quiet, but in an hour or so. for
some unexplained reason, the cattle
were un and off like a flash. Some
thing had stampeded them.
He was riding an old blue colored
line backed California broncho, just
the beast for the work. He had often
ridden him a hundred miles a day.
The night was dark and cloudy, and
he had to rely on the animal's sure
footedness as he strove to stay on ,the
flanks of the steers and turn them
until their scare should cease.
It was a wild race. Four or five
times the broncho gave tremendous
Jumps, but landed right and went on
in good shape. In the course of an
hour or so the man had the beeves
When daylight came, being curious
to learn what obstacles had occasioned
those tremendous Jumps or tne bron
cho, the man set forth to look over the
ground. Leaving the bottom land, the
steers had ascended a gentle acclivity,
and on the piateau at the top be bad
kept circling them.
The plateau was intersected by
can^oc about four miles long and from
1,500 to 2.000 feet deep. Its walls in
clined toward each other at the top
nnrt thp distance across was fifteen or
twenty feet.
During the chase the broncho had
jumped that frightful chasm four
times. Ells hoof marks were plainly
visible, and down in the debris, hun
dreds of feet below, were a dozen
mangled steers that hnd been crowded
off.?Los Angeles Times.
A Once Thriving Industry That Hasj
Nearly Vanished.
At the outbreak of the American Rev j
olution and for a period of seventy-five
years following the conclusion of that
struggle whaling was the most important
branch of the American fisheries.
From 500 to 700 vessels sought whales
in all the oceans and seas of the world,
Vnnr D/vlfAr/1 a Inn a I
auu lli uuc .1 ca 1 .<c? utuiviu I
sent out 300 vessels, whose cargoes of j
bone and oil were the basis of the in- j
dustrial life of the city.
The pursuit of sperm whales reached I
its climax in 1837, when oil valued at
nearly $4,500,000 was brought in, mostly
from the south Pacific. The height
of the industry was in 1846, when 70,-1
000 persons derived their support from j
whales and 720 vessels, valued at $21.000,000,
were engaged.
For more than fifty years the fishery
has been declining, and in numerous
ports that once derived most of their
wealth from the industry there have
for a long time existed only memories
of former greatness. For a number of
years the''sperm, right and bow head
whales that supported the fishery in
early years have been very scarce and
their pursuit has been unprofitable,
and the present importance of the |
whal? fishery, amounting in value to
less than 2 per cent of the American
fisheries, depends on the taking from
shore stations of species of whales that
formerly were for the most part neglected.
The glory of the whale fishery has
departed forever, and the commercial
if not the biological extinction of all
kinds of whales is proceeding rapidly,
undeterred and unlamented by the
principal maritime powers?Hugh M.
