States Allies are lleceivinj; Shipments of War Supplies. Washington. April 9.?Germany lias sent to tlie I'nited States a note complaining that the latter has accomplished nothing In its diplomaticcorrespondence with the allies to obtain fnr American exnorters the right to ship foodstuffs to the civilian population of a belligerent country. The communication intimates also that the United States has virtually acquiesced in the British order in council prohibiting commerce with Germany. In view of these considerations Germany calls attention to the fact that the allies daily are obtaining large shipments of arms and ammunition from dealers in the United States, and declares that the American government, while insisting on its legal right to ship arms to belligerents. does not with equal energy pursue its ngnt to snip loousums and non-contraband articles to the civilian population of Germany. The note urges that, irrespective of the formal aspects of the question) of shipping arms to belligerents, the spirit of neutrality should be observ ed. In support of this contention a quotation is cited from President Wilson's address to congress on .Mexican affairs in August, 1913. when he I said: "I shall follow the best practice of nations in the matter of neutrality by forbidding the exportation of arms or munitions of war of any kind from the United States to any part of the republic of Mexico?a policy suggested by many manifest considerations of practical expediency. We cannot, in the circumstances, be partisans of either party to the contest that now distracts Mexico, or constitute our . selves the virtual umpire .between them." Officials of the State department have begun the preparation of a ret ply. The complaint that neutral countries had submitted to the influence of the allies in connection with the right to ship conditional contraband has been made before by Germany in her diplomatic notes? this being cited by the German for; ' .- eign office as one of the reasons for proclaiming a submarine war zone of the waters surrounding Great Britain and Ireland. The United States j~.1 mi?|? then that it had I 111 * to ivfv been silent on the question and called attention to its diplomatic notes to Great Britain dealing with the situation. It is understood that the reply to the present complaint will deny vigorously that this government has acquiesced in any way to the order in council, and probably will refer to the last note sent by the United States to Great Britain arguing at !ength in opposition to the viewpoint of the allies 011 the blockade question. As for the utterances of the president on the shipment of arms into Mexico, officials here hold that the Mexican situation constitutes a special case, in no way comparable with the relations between the United States arfd the European belligerents. Officials pointed out that the president said in the same address to congress : *I deem it my duty to exercise ! 3-, ' y. he authority conferred upon me by the law of .March 14. 1912, to see to it that neither side of the struggle, now going on in Mexico, receive any assistance from this side of the bor I uci. . There is no law by which the president of the United Sta,tes. it was declared. could exercise the same auhority, even if he were desirous of forbidding the exportation of arms to all belligerents, as to do so without authority from congress would | be unconstitutional. The viewpoint of the American government has been from the outset that its position will respect to thei shipment of arms has been enforced! impartially as to all belligerents, and, Secretary Bryan's letter to Chairman j Stone, of the senate foreign relations committee, discussed this point, con-j " tended that if the Germanic allies were unable to enjoy the same advantages as to the delivery of arms into their country, this was due to the naval superiority of Great Britain and not to any circumstances over which the United States had any control. I/?ll^-wl Tvivinrr Hampton. April 12.?George F. Is Fennel), a constable, shot and killed James Riley, a mill hand employed ! by the Hampton and Branchville Rail-j road Lumber company, here tonight.! It seems that the oflicer went to the house of a man named Miley to ar-; rest Riley, that after gaining admit-! tance to the house he waked Riley and told him to put on his clothes: that Riley jumped out of the window and endeavored to escape and the constable opened fire, shooting several times. The last shot struck1 Riley in the head, killing him instantly. Constable Fennell is in custody and the inquest will be held tomorrow, i i SOI TH CAROLINA MILITARY. ] State Would lie Requested to Furnish! <>,."?J)0 of Army of 400,(MM) Men. j The adjutant general's office is in J receipt of information from the di-j vision of militia affairs at Washing-! ton. says a Columbia dispatch, pre- ( scribing the quota of troops each State would be required to furnish in case the Cnited States should be ( ! required to put an army of 400.000 j men in the field. The national war j ( i department finds that this State | J would have to furnish 6,.">90 men. j 1 i The United States has been divid-1 | ed into twelve organized militia di- L ! visional districts with the idea that , [ each of these districts will maintain j a complete tactical division. The field service regulations prescribe (that a tactical division shall consisf j " j of three brigades, nine regiments of J ^ j infantry, one regiment of cavalry, j j one brigade of field artillery, two I regiments: one battalion of engin! eers. three companies: one battalion ^ of signal troops, two companies: onej ^ [ammunition train, four ambulance j j companies and three field hospital ^ companies. With the exception of New York. r>rAnoi? nPAnnrtlATI nf i j IIU OlitlC net?) UiC jJi I'WM \/* ^ cavalry. The war department is making strenuous efforts to have the governors of the various States organize units along the lines suggest1- j ed by the general staff of the army and contained in the letter to the ad- * jutant general. Under the plan of organization by ^ the war department, two regiments of South Carolina infantrv and one a Florida regiment have been designated the 26th brigade of the 9th divis sion. ? Based on a call of 400,000 men to \ arms, South Carolina would furnish * c 6,.">90, divided as follows: Five coma panies of coast artillery, 5.*>3 men; one troop cavalry, 100 men: three - .. . J batteries of field artillery, o.iz men, one company of engineers, 184 men; J one ambulance company, one field hospital company 14C men; two regiments of infantry, 3,720 men; others c required. 1,320 men for headquarr ters and transportation. Governor Manning on January 26, V wrote to the secretary of war that he stood ready to cooperate with the United States war department in bringing the national guard of this ? State up to the army requirements. The governor has also assured Ad- * jutant General Moore that he will tt back him up in his endeavor to make the State militia organization one of the best in the South. Major Caldwell said that with the small appropriation made by the general assembly that it will be impossible to support three regiments. In a orMitinn tn this the war deDartment c has increased the minimum strength v of a regiment of infantry to 990 men v and officers and the maximum v strength of 1,915. One of the regi- ti ments will have to he disbanded as e the war department plans call for tl only two regiments of this State. c The Bismarck Centenary. But for the war the centenary of ^ Bismarck's birth would be celebrated e on April 1 with great pomp and circumstance throughout Germany. Yet a though the war interferes with that, it has given new significance and emphasis to the occasion. The work of a his hands is receiving a crucial test; the empire which he created is pass- t( ing through a fiery ordeal the issue of which no one can with confidence predict. It has become commonplace >to say that if Bismarck had been in 0 command this could not have happened: certainly it would not have been likely to happen in just the actual way. Yet in a very true sense . what is happening is a product of the forces to which he gave direction and ? helped to as much as one man may to ' create. Nobody knew better than Bismarck what an anxious legacv he left be- ^ f bind him. When against his better judgment he had yielded in 1ST 1 to o the demand for the annexation of . Alsace-Lorraine lie understood per- 11 fectly that it meant insuring for Germany a bitter and lasting enmity s with France and that Germany's policy for a long time to come would have to be shapped by this vital fact. a p The boldest as well as the most ruthless of modern statesmen, Bismack was also one of the most cautious. War he resorted to without jj! scruple, but never without making r sure of success in advance. And when with three mighty strokes of a the Thor hammer he had welded his ^ empire together, he was wise enough g and cautious enough to see that the time had come to put safety first. 1 The thought of hostile conditions, he 3 g said, gave hint nightmares.

K\|?ert (iivcs Sound Advice to New lle-iinners. From Dr. \V. A. Evans, medical expert of "The World's Greatest Newspaper." and former health officer of Chicago, we learn how a sensible man would go about getting drunk. The shocked reader may object that "a sensible man wouldn't get Jrunk," but let's not argue about [hat. The point is, that most men ivlio indulge in spiritous excesses are ,-ery stupid in staging the performance. Whether they do it without preneditation or in a "going-to-get-drunkmd-gosh-how-I-dread-it" spirit, they jlunder in the execution, and suffer innecessarily. So here is Dr. Evans' system?take it or leave it: To begin with don't get drunk .vhen you have a cold. The cold may )e an excuse for a "jag." but it's a joor foundation for it. The same is true of weariness. Don't get drunk when you're tired, or ou simply add alcohol fatigue to latural fatigue. If you are tired vhen the inspiration strikes you. rest tp for a day or two. Then, before starting the celebraion. take a dose of salts or castor >il. Now, you're ready. If you must jet drunk, why go ahead and drink! fhnnsp a clean./-well ventilated )lace to do it in. Don't hang around i hot stove in a close room, on a lirty floor sprinkled with sawdust md pneumonia gerins. You need resh air?oxygen?to burn up the ilcohol. Before you reach the unconscious tage, pick out the place where you're roing to sleep it off. It should be a vell-aired room, cool, but not too :old. Be sure the window is open, md you have enough bedclothes to ;eep you from being chilled when our vitality ebbs low, as it will while our system is working to throw off he poison. When you wake up, you'll have a leadache, a bad taste and a dry ough. Take some calomel or com?ound cathartic pills and one dose of leadache medicine, and drink a lot of cater. Now, take a little nourishnent?say a glass of milk and a cup if coffee, then a package of chewing ;um. After that, get outdoors and ake some exercise. In a day or two ou'll feel fairly decent again. Rut " thp shoekerl reader objects. if getting drunk involves all that rouble and inconvenience, why get runk at all?" School "Parsonages." The Newberry Herald and News dvocates "parsonages" for teachers. >f course, "parsonage" is not the rord, but the idea is similar to proiding residences for pastors. It . ould seem to be a good idea for the eachers to be provided with homes, specially in country districts, so that he teacher and his family could benme a part of the community life, t would greatly aid in securing cometent teachers and keep them. But he Herald and News does not sugest what to do when the teachers re not married. Perhaps they would 11 get married.?Bamberg Herald. The school to which we referred s having visited in Richland county, nd w^hich had some six or seven eachers, did not have any that were carried, and yet they kept house and ved for about six dollars the month ach. They kept house or looked ut for the purcnasing ana so on uy urns. The principal was a young lan and the assistants were young idies, and they lived as one family i a house adjoining the school buildig. and in connection with the rounds they had a garden and aught gardening and agriculture and orticulture in a practical way. Of course, it would be better if the rincipal of the school were married, or then the idea we had in mind of he teacher becoming a part of the ommunity and interested personally ti everything that went to the adancement of the community would e carried out. The plan is the ideal chool and the time is not far disant when it will be in operation in , number of the more progressive ural communities. The plan of the teacher living on he school grounds and becoming art of the community life is the idea ?rof. Tate told us about after he ptnrned from a visit to Switzerland, nd those who heard his admirable Ilustrated lecture will remember that ie not only told about them, but howed on the screen the homes of he teachers and the school buildings nd the class rooms. We advocated uch a plan before Prof. Tate went o Switzerland. It is the only plan iy which to have efficient schools in lie rural districts. There are several chool districts in Newberry countyi rhere such a plan is practical and > ouid be put in operation. It will ake time for the people to see and inderstand the good of such a plan, hit it is coming. We would like to ee Newberry county one of the ioneers.?Newberry Herald and Cews.
