Thie contention over the Ken
tunv ubernatorial uddle ha
at last been settled by a decision
in favor of the Demlorats by the
Supreme Court of the nie
States. Thief Justice Fuller in
rendering is decision said the
questions involved were not
within the jurisdiction of the
United States Courts, as, they
were purely of State c-oncern and,
ce Tyle, according to the
constitution and laws of the
State. This virtually knocks thec
Republicans off their props and
they will ma-eke no further resist

Some kind friend has senit us
an emetic in the shape of a copy
of "T'ie Seashore Re.,view" a
printed sheet which seems to be
doing the scavanger act in the
day time, and the Lord-only
knows-what. at night. It roosts
on Sullivan's Island, and ties
over into Charleston where it
seems to be poking its bill into
everybody's business andl all
sorts of places: filth gathering
seems to be its mission, which
inclines us to the belief that it
has the plumage of, and profes
ses to be, a mother-carv bird.
It is a fortunate thing for Char
~ston that newspaper readers
are Mtelligent enough to not
take seiously anything they
might read in the "Review" be
cause its very make up gives its
irresponsibility away. The song
of a bird that befouls its own
nest will not linger long.
In the last legislature a bill to
permit graduates of the South

Charleston to pr-actice without
being examnin ed by the State
Medical board, was defeated in
the Senate by one vote, after it
had passed the House by an over
whelming majority. A great
many people thought the meas
ure a proper one and advocated
the passage of the bill, on the
ground that a student hav-ing a
diploma from the Charleston
Medical College was a guarantee
of his qualitication to practice
medicine. At the last meeting
of the State board seventeen
graduates failed to pass the r
quired examination, and the

The constitution of the Dem

they are not the candidates of a

conscientious Prjhibitionists re

by the Prohibition conference
tonight in Columbia? Do they
believe the candidates suggest

orably take the pledge that they
are not the candidates of a fac

suggested? The constitutional
pledge has not been changed,
and two years ago, Brunson's
ticket was pulled down because
it had been "s-uggested" in vio

Dem-nocratic paty. If Colonel
Hoyt is suggested tonight we do

We do not understand how
the Prohibitionists can have a
Prohibition State Executive
Committee, a chairman in each
county. hold conventions for
county and State. and yet claim
to be acting within the Demo
cratic party. When the Demo

who declare themselves in favor
Of prohibition are invited. The
State Democrat ic Executive Coin
Iiittee is the head of the party,
and aill] other Democratic com
mittees are sub-ordinated to it.
The State committee not wishing
to offend were very lenient two
I years ago with the Prohibition
ists. and by taking no action
I permitted them to have their
I eparate organizations. We do
lot believe in such a policy, if
we are to keel) up the Demo
cratic organization the State
conmittee must take a positive
pos'ition: it it not right to per
mit independant organizations
within the Democratic organiza
tion and it should not be allowed.
If our prohibition friends have a
major~01ity they.' can elect whomi
they pleaise within the par'ty and
if they haven't they must sub

claiming to be working in the
party, and organizing against the
party should be checked.

Dvis Station. Jordan and the "Duffyv
Old Stand." The first three of these
may be taken into one as iny native
neighbohood: as the place where my
happy boyhood days. guarded over- by
loving par'ents. were spent: the place I
love best of all lalice. The last, which
is down on Santee. is the laice where 1
passed the time of one school ter'm. try
ing to promote my own educational
standing and inter'esting tmyself in en
deavoring to pr'epar'e the children of
that section. who had been placed un
der' my supervision, to make their
future life a success. Therefore I feel
that I owe to the above named places
a lasting i'emembt'ance: and I do rec
ember them. I shall not forget how
t h ueople of my community took a firm
stan'd in my favor in time of adversities
they all knowv what this means). and
they shall ever r-eceive my kindest r
1coll'etion for so doing.
I shall try to make this letter non
sentimental, although it is always hard
for mne to write other'wise.
It was on the 12th day of April. 1899,
that I bade a loving mother. a devoted
father and affectionate brother's aud
sister's goodbye. 1 was always fond of
my home. and it was with some diffi
cu'lty that I par'ted therefrom. but
there lay at future before me in which
I knew' I should be up and doing:
theefore it behoov-ed mec to make this
depattre, ev-en thotugh it was accomn
panied by sadness.
n the' following mornilng, Aprlil 13th
i arived at Nashville. I took a back at
ihe depot and went directly to Dr'aug

1i purchashied a scholar'shipl for the comn

core. 1 shall not write at all in this
mnaner: I shall only touc~h on a few
getnral points.
inmmediately prtoceeded to atccomi
plish the purplose for which I had comec.
The first of my study wasi dlirected on
the bookkeeping cours5e. Ou)tr school
was run night and day. that is. from
-'lock to 9 o'clock at night, hence
wead little or no time for fi'ollicking.
IHoever,. we were at liber'tv to stay
out' of schooXl whenever we felt so dis
pSd. We had steamboat excursions
to) nienie. street cars running to the
pakis anc imin the things of the
k inl ant octina hie I would take
opportunities were otfered day at
night. so I had the chance of spendiig
a few pleasant days in this way and
many delightful evening-s.
It. is. however, as any one who has
attended a college. either literary o'r
business. will know. a matter of fact
that the question which receives the
most serious cOinsiderat ion with a otl1
lvge student is tlie ilnancial question.

hit'. oi have attratted all of my atten
tion. These were taken only for ree
reation after a periol of hard study.
's h1'IS beei stated above, the first
branch of study that I took up was that
,,f bookkeepingt. At iirst I experienced
011e Very diflictult tasks in tryin to
get iy tiial balance at the enild of a
mionth , for we took trial balances each
month). and te make imy * protit and loss
account come out right after a year's
active business was more trouhlesome.
But time passed on. bookkeeping Ie
came mo'e easy. and in the course of a
few months I became the possessor of a
diploma on this study from the college
as befofore mentioned. I suppose. judg
ing from the grade marked on my dip
loma. and taking into consideration that
this college furnishes a very thorough
I course of study, that I am now a "pret
ty _ood" bookkeeper. However. I have
not yet Put this into practice.
Immediately after getting my diploma
on bookkeeping I took up a study which
is not practiced quite so much in our
section as bookkeeping. that of short
hand. On this study I experienced
much less trouble than had been found
in the study formerly mentioned. After
spending three and one-half months in
the shorthand department of the col
lege and working in the office of same
for one month. I accepted a posi
tion as stenographer with the irni of
H. W. Forde & Co.. Steel and Iron
Factors, this city. After working with
this firm for about two months I had
the opportunity of getting a better
pa)ving plae, so I accepted a position
as'stenographer for the Equitable Life
Insurance Co.. this city. where I am at
the present time. Since completing my
tenographic course I have also had the
offer of a situation with one of our law
yers in Georgetown S. C., but for rea
sons not given I declined the offer. I
like stenography better than I do book
keeping. and expect I will follow this
line of work.

Johnston's Sarsaparilla
A Wise and Venerable Doctr Talks about. Advanced Science.
In a leading hotel, in a great city, a famous and aged physician was convers
ing. Istening to his wise and sententious discourse, were a group of well
dressed men, evidently lawyers, business men and commercial travelers.
My firm belief, is " that medical science is certain yet to show .that all dis
eases without exception are caused by invisible germs which are iving organ
isms. Here is the germ of that terribl disease diphtheria. Here is the bacillus
of typhoid fever; andhere is the still more dreadful bacillus of tubercle which
causes that most destructive of all diseases, consumption. This of that very
common and supposed incurable disease, catarrh."
"I wish, Doctor," said the traveling man, "that you would tell us about
catarrh. I have had it for years, and I am thoroughly discouraged."
The Doctor answered. "Catarrh, like diphtheria, consumption, typhoid
fever, and a host of other diseases, is the result of a microbe invading the blood
and attacking specially the mucous membrane. This foul and most disgusting
disease is especially prevalent in the United States and it is rare to meet one
vho is not, or has not been troubled more or less with it. How often is he or
she obliged to remain at home frompleasant entertainments, deprive themselves
of many intellectual treats, from fear of the disagreeable odor arising from ca
tarrhal afections. In its worst phase, the patient becomes loathsome both to
himse f and his friends.
"I believe," continu ed this great physician, "that the true way to heal ca
tarrh is to medicate the blood. This can be done only by powerful alterativcs
which act as blood purifiers."
Betsy A. Marett, of Manistee, Manistee Co., Mich., writes:
Dear Sirs :-For ten years I was a sufferer from general debility and chronic
atarrh. My face was pale as death. I was weak and short of breath. I could
hardly walk, I was so dizzy and had a ringing in my head all the time. My
hands and feet were always cold. My appetite was very poor. On getting up
in the morning, my head swam so I was often obliged to lie down again. I had
awful pains in the small of my back. 1 had a continual feeling of tiredness.
My muscular power was almost entirely gone, and I couldn't go half a dozen
steps without stopping to rest, and often that much exercise caused me to have
a pain in my side. It seemed as though the blood had left my veins. The doc
tors said my blood had all turned to water. I had given up all hope of ever get
ting well. I tried the best physicians in the state, but faled to get any relief.
My husband got me a bottle of Johnston's Sarsaarilla. I took it, and then I
bought another. When these had been used, Iwas somewhat improved in
health. I continued its use, and felt I was growing stronger; my sleep was -re
rehgad it seemed as if I could feel new blood moving through my veins. I
keo aing it, and now consider myself a well and rugged woman. I work
all the time, and am happy. I am positive that the Sarsaparilla'saved my life.
The sick headaches I have had since childhood, have disappeared, and my ca
tarrh has almost entirely left me. I cannot be too thankful for what Johnston's
Sarsaparilla has done for me. I recommend all women who have sick head
aches to use your Sarsaparilla.
