Telephone, local and long distance. No. 112. Entered at' the postofllco at Fort Mill, S. C., us mail matter of the second class. THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1021. Pretty soon there will be n Kilkenny scrap on among tin-1 senate Republicans. With cotton seed?from which there is n popular impression cottonseed hulls arc taken as one of the relatively unimportant byproducts?selling at 25 cents per bushel, why is it the public has to pay $1.25 cents per hundred for cottonseed hulls? One explanation is that the the cotton oil mills have not yet learned that the fine art of gouging was supposed to be confined to the war ' era. Now for a peep at the daily papers which inflict a mult it urinous number of hand-me-down features which nobody ever reads. Next Sunday we shall go t?> church or spend an hour looking through the same papers for the stray items of news obscured by the "social." When The Times becomes a daily it will contain few "features" and no "social"?.which latter stuff is worse reading than most fake medicine tt stimonials. The service the weather bureau furnishes the country lacks much of being worth the price. For instance, Sunday we were told by the bureau that thi* cold siiap i>* .prospect for the first of the v. eck would ^ause no discomfort. People in this section yeiterduy suffered as much from cold as on ary day during the winter. The weather bureau is unreliable more than half the time. While it may he true that the Non-Partisan League has ruined North Dakota financially, it certainly is true that the League will never be ruined by Kansas citizens who resort to violence in opposing those who are pushing the party's interests in that State. Former soldiers who are credited with forcing two speakers for the League to apply to themselves a uuitim^ 01 iar iiiiti 111 o11 running them out of the county were in disreputable business to say the least. The Non-T'art isan League may even be worse than its opponents say it is, but Mistreatment of its members will not stay iis growth in Kansas or elsewhere. "F.or ye have the poor always with you." There are poor poo- | pie in South Carolina, to be sure, just as there are poor people in every section of the country. Some, a considerable number, of those in this State who have never succeeded in getting a foothold on the path that leads to comfortable living apparently have themselves to thank for their unhappy condition. Adversity has fallen on others and these are not to be censured for their failure to grasp the opportunities that knnnk nearly every man's door in 8011th Carolina. Nature has been kind to this State and here there is more thjfn a chance for one to fro forward in life. With a climate unsurpassed anywhere 011 the face of the globe and with soil from which may be coaxed food for man and beast with a minimum of effort, truly South Carolina is one of the favored States of the American union. ? , v * ..*. . V. 'x CASE STILL IN COURT. Hearing of Big McNinoh Damage Suit Not Yet at End. Trial of the or S. S.
