If the city council could devis
ways and means for paving the busi
ness portion of Main street the mer
chants would be 6aved hundreds o
dollars a year, now resulting fror
damage by dust.
According to Mr. Miley's article i:
this issue, the governor on one occa
. sion sent the speaker of the house
Mendel L. Smith, candidate for gov
ernor, a '(lower. Mr. Smith claim
to be opposed to the present admin
istration. Does any of our reader
know of 'the governor being so kim
to one of his "enemies." or is Mi
Smith a recent convert?

The Herald is today giving it
space largely to the publication o
the Democratic club rolls for Bam
berg county. The county executiv
committee has not sufficient funds t
publish these lists as an advertise
ment, but The Herald, feeling tha
the people should be in possession o
of the certified lists, requested th
rolls for publication. The list show
all those qualified to vote in the Dem

"The South's Going Dry."
Lay the jest about the julep in tb
camphor balls at last,
For the miracle has happened, an
the .olden days are past!
That which made Milwaukee famou
does not foam in Tennessee,
And the lid in old Missouri is as tigh

And the comic paper Colonel an
his cronies well may sigh,
For the mint is waving gayly, an
the South is going dry.

= Spear Went Through His Ear and He
Has Blood Poisoning.
ie Leaving a crowded aisle of a Curtis
? street theatre on Thursday night a
ig few hours after coming to town from
r- his ranch" near Fort Collins, J. H.
Evans was impaled on a hatpin
)y through the upper part of his right
il ear. Erysipelas and blood poison
te have set in and his life is ii^ the balance.
Evans is facing that part of
it bravely. What hurt his feelings
b, most, he said, was the woman's sarle
When she felt the interference at
r. the end of the long pin the woman
1- jerked her head around to see what
it had caught. As Evans' ear slipped

r" "I was glad enough to get off and
g out of the theatre before she called
^ a policeman," said Evans. "I
shouldn't know her again if I saw her,
8 but I would know the pin. It was
.? about a yard and a half long. My
[. wife had a hat something like hers
three years ago last winter."

e Why Japan is Proud.
Nor is Japan at all ashamed of bef
ing classed among Mongolians, a race
a that has as great a history as any
nation of the west. Napoleon was
Q not a greater soldier than Genghis
_ Khan, nor did he exercise rule over
3 creator pmnirp The Mongolian
.. race was using the mariner's compass
s when western nations were picking
_ their way along the coast by the stars.
s They had printed books when Europe
a was steeped in primeval ignorance
. and were wearing silks and drinking
tea from porcelain cups when our ancestors
were roaming naked or clad in
1 skins, and for household utensils had
~ but the crudest of vessels. Japan
_ is in no way ashamed of a Mongolian
ancestry. Whether she is of such an*
cestry, however, is another question.
In any case discrimination on the
-j basis of race without consideration
i of individual merit is an injustice
unworthy of any civilized nation.
? And so Japan asks only for the rights
and privileges as America already
s concedes to negroes, Turks, Red In^
dians and other races of her population.
Are not all the best Americans
at this moment rather ashamed that
0 a highly civilized nation like the Japanese
should be put to the humiliat
tion of having to make formal request
f for the common rights already cone
ceded other aliens? The dragging in
s of Mexico as a "red herring" in the
discussion is likewise somewhat un- J
e fortunate, as the inference is without
basis of fact.?Prof. J. Ingram Bryt

Big Year in Church Building.

g ous parts of the country indicate that I

structures that will cost ' between
"j $35,000,000 and $40,000,000. While
f all of this money may not be spent I
^ upon the buildings before the end of
e this year, contracts uncompleted at
the begining of the season will make
the totaL expenditure this year ap,
This sum is about $5,000,000 above j
the average for the last J4T years.
The Roman Catholics are among
e the most active this season. They
are following the pattern of Vienna,
d Paris and Rome in multiplying the
numbers of parishes in large cities,
s feeling their parishes in many cases
are too large. 'In the Southern States
,t much building of small Catholic
churches is going on.
d The Episcopalians are also active.
They are building cathedrals in sevd
eral important cities. The Christian
Scientistis report fewer building projects
this year than formerly.
New York will spend from $5,000,Lt
000 to $8,000,000 this summer, chiefly
on Manhattan island. Chicago has
in hand some $3,000,000 in church
,s projects. The South and Southwest,
New England and the Rocky mountain
regions report the largest numbers
of projects, although in many
cases amounts involved are small.?

Big Snake and Bear Not as Bad as

Boa constrictors and grizzly bears yam|
have long been thought of as crea- Denn
tures to be dreaded, but Enos A. Olar.

good word for the bear, says Youth's ^0%a
Companion, and Dr. Frank Baldwin,
recently returned from an exploring STAT
trip to the Philippines, speaks sympathetically
of the snake. Boar
Mr. Mills declares that the grizzly rect
is the most maligned of animals. He Sw
minds his own business, except when
he is attacked, and lives on nuts,

First War Correspondent. Hon"'
The first war correspondent, ac- Jaspe
cording to a theory propounded by Kdrsl
Sutherland Edwards, appears to have
been Homer, who was sent by the Lee .
editor of an Argos newspaper called Lexin
the Chronos to describe the siege of Mari(
Troy. Hostilities lasted only about
seven weeks, and when they came Ocom
to an end the Greek chiefs were in Orc.ni
no hurrv to return to their wives. Picke
Homer was a good sort, and as he galu(j
drew a large salary, and a handsome gpart
allowance for expenses from the Sumt
Chronos, he readily accepted the Unioi
scheme propounded by the wise Ulys- y
ses?to keep the war going in the
columns of his paper as long as he ___
