Some take old En sh names and some take Irish d Scotch names. One man med Kaiser had his name anged to King, which was it 'tactful. Another one, med Kuss, had his changed Cuss, which was not much of improvement. Eow the legislature of South rolina is going to make a law prohibit the planting of cot i, or any other crop, for that tter, is beyond us. The su ime court of the United States. not the state court, would ock a law of that kind sky th at the first shot. Besides, re are ten other cotton states take into consideration.

A Letter That Does Us Good Editor Pickens Sentinel: Your letter to hand, stating you could not send your paper any longer without cash in advance; that your paper and raw material was advanc ing every day. I am aware of the fact that you are following the law and doing your duty. I can't do without your paper if it cost me $5, so I enclose you a brand-fire new $1 bill that Uncle Sam has just made out of the high raw material. I sold 14 pounds of cotton to get this pa per, while last year I only had to sell 8 pounds pay for my paper, so you see it has cost about twice as much this year as it did last. This is a mighty pretty one dollar billand I hate to see you leave me so bad, but I want to put this hard money where it will do the most good. The dear old Sentinel has come to my home so long I wil say good-bye, dollar bill, go and bring me The Sentinel another year. Yours truly, Y t J. A. RoBINSON. - Easley, S. C., Oct. 13. Warehouse Bill Passes Senate Columbia. Oct. 14.-The Mc Laurin bill providing for a state system of warehouses for the storing of cottbn and valida tion of the cotton warehouse receipt passed the Senate this afternoon by a vote of 27 to 11 and was ordered sent to the House. The bill provides for one commissioner at a salary of $3,000 per year to be elected by the General Assembly for a term of two years to handle the warehouse system. The bill carries an appropriation of $15, 000 for salaries and expense of putting the plan into operation. The warehouse commissioner to have the power to acquire ware house by lease or condemnation and to aDpoint such subordinates as necessary. He is to give bond in the sum of $50,000. The bill rovides for state val idation of the warehouse receipt, the receipt to carry absolu title to the cotton and to gua - antee the weight and grade. The Senate adopted the House concurrent resolution providing for one member of the house to be appointed by the speaker and one member of the Senate to be appointed by the Senate to ac company Governor Blease to the conference of governors of the cotton growing states to be held in Memphis, Tenn., on Fri day, expenses to be paid out of Sthe governor's contingent fund. The police regulations com Imittee reported that under the blimitation of the activities of )the session they vere unable to Ireport on the resolution of Sen -ator Lawson, providing for all dispensaries in the state to be closed until the end of the European war. On request of the Darlington senator his reso lution went on the calendar. The House refusod emphatic ally to accept less than full pay for the extr~a session when it killed this morning the resolu tion from the Senate fixing $5 a day and mileage as compensa tion for members of the legisla ture. The administration bills on the House calenner to postpone the payment of taxes for 1914 were all killed this morning by an overwhelming vote. The resolution providing for refer ring (he issuing of $10,000,000 in bonds to the qualified voters at the next election -was defeated. Rev. D. W. Hiott in Belton Rev. D. W.

A Coincidence That is a coincidence about the people at the first Philadel phia game of the world series as compared with the first Phila delphia game of 1913. Last year. the opening game was played at the Polo Grounds and the second game at Phila delphia. The announced paid admission at Friday's game was 20,562. The receipts were $49,639. In the first game in Philadel phia last year, the attendance was 20,563; the .receiall t18?40. It will bes there was o mre dnllne: A True Indictment A good friend of ours, once resident of Gaffney and there fore an admirer of her peopl, and the people of the South in general, who now lives in Phila delphia, sent us the other day clipping from the Philadelphi Inquirer. which. in our jude ment, hits the nail on the head Our friend evidently is arouse over the matter, as his letter it dicates that he does not agre with the sentiments expresse in the article, but we are here t admit that the indictment i true-every' word of it. W are really ashamed of our pec ple that they should plead wit' the people of other sections fo aid in the manner in whic. they have when there is no n( cessity to do so. Cotton ha sold for a less price than is b( ing offered for it today and w 'did not bez and whiue to b taken care of. We have bee in a thousand times worse shap financially and otherwise tha we are today and we scorned t ask our friends in the North an East to come to our rescue. A a matter of fact The Ledger d( sires that the farmers of th South obtain every penny the can for their cotton crop, bu we want them to obtain it in manly manner and nbt be d< pendent upon any one. Ou people are too proud and sell reliant to appeal to the people C any other section of this grez country of ours for help unles some real calamity overtake us, and this has not been tb case as yet. We submit the r< marks of the Inquirer: "Appeals from all parts of th South have come to the Nort and many a Philadelphian ask ing that cotton be bought fo ten cents a pound and held fo a rise while planters ' -e makin their annual settlements. Othe wise we are assured the Sout will be bankrupt. "When we consider that fc generations the South has ha the best cash crop in the worl and that for ten years cotto has been raised at a great profi the impotence of Souther financial institutions to care fc the crop is significant. It shoN% that the South has not well cot served its resources. The We4 has not sent appeals for help i caring for its wheat and cor crops because the thrifty farn ers have managed to get int good position, and Wester financial institutions rival thos of the East in banking powe: The South has ever lived on th come easy go easy plan an never has accumulated a so plus for emergencies. "It is quite true that wheat up and cotton is down on a< count of the war, but it is nevertheless, no credit to th South that it is in such poc strategic position. All the tim the Southern statesmen hay been railing at the financial ir stitutions of the East and cor demning Wall street to perd tion, there has been no effort t do anything but raise cottor Now the South can raise almo everything that grows, has con and iron and plenty of nature resources. The plain truthi that the average Southerner not a constructive financie: N'ow he appeals to the formerl derided financial centres for ai not in the ordinary manner, br begs, hat in hand,: for dribs c money f r o m individuals."
