see thousands oft people engaged in a

any serious disturbance or riot. To
appreciate the ditTerence one must

nothing worthy of tbe name of riot

fever heat. Each new bulletin was
received with cheers by the party
that derived most comfort from it.

From the Greenville Ne'ws,
In an interview publi-hed on Fri
day last in the Charleston News anld
Courier, ref'erence was made to this
new road as only connecting Colum
bia and Charleston. and this in the
face of a public annoncement that a
charter was to be obtained for this road
from Greenville via Laurens, New
herry and Orangeburg to Charleston;
this short, impregnable central line
from the mountains to Charleston,
with the opportunity for rapid trans
it, will, it Is believed, mulhiply won
derfully intercour-e between upper
Carolina and Charleston, and attract
business largely from the territory
east and west of it.
We fail to understand how it can
be imagined that the project ema
nates from the Richmond and Dan

steadily sunk to the low figure of

dicate that it already possessed all
the miles of badly located roads it
want d in South Carolina.
Perhaps the solicitude exhibited In
this interview by Mr. Brawley, the
attorney for the South Carolina Rail
way Company, grows out of the fact
that this new road will represent on
ly $15,000 a mile, as against $40,000
a mile of bond debt and $20,000 a
mile of stock debt. a total of over
$60,000 on Mr. Brawley's road ! And
perhaps .the business community of
upper South Carolina. and especially
of Greenville, Laurens, Newberry,
Columbia and Orangeburg, when
they realize that $2,500,000, in
vested in a clean new road 210 miles

The empty tin can at last has a
nission, and.a profitable one at that.
Emptied of its contents'of peaches or
;oma'oes, discarded and tbrown out

tent in at the front door or find an
ionored place in the best room in the
lonse. Thousands of these cans are
athered in Philadelphia every week
md made into shining sheets and
xsed to decorate or cover large tra
reling trunks, and thus get a promo
ion from the back yard to the boa
loir. On the outskirts of the city,
within a short time, a number cf fac
ories for the conversion of these old,
>uffeted and battered cans and other
in refuse from the ash.heaps have
sprung up, and the business is a
rowing one. One of considerable
size is on Moyamening avenue, be
ow Miffiin street, where a large force
f men is kept busy day in and day
)ut. The cans are collected in vart
)us ways. but principally from the
,ity ash heaps and the hotels and
Large boarding houses. At the factory
the soldered seams are subjected to
n intense heat in such a way that
the solder is allowed to run in a re
zeptacle, and is carefully saved and
sold, the profit fiomn this s-'ure
alone almost paying for the expense
of gathering and handling the cans.
The tops and bot;oms of tbe cans nre
turnred into window-sash weights. The
labels on the tin-plates are easily
taken off, after having been thorough
ly soaked and the plates'themselves
rolled out flat by machinery. As dis
colored by the contents they present
a clean surface and make excellent
covers for trunks, the seams being
hidden by the trunk braces, either
wood or sheet.iron. Other uses are
also made of the tin plates, and there
is considerahle profit in the business.
Th'e process is quite simple, and very
little capital is required. One con
cern in this city rolled out 40.000 of
these plates in less than two months,
and the industry promises to be large
ly developed both here and else.

Don't lire a single hour of. your
life without doing exactly what is to
be done mn it, and going straight
through it from beginning to end.
Work, play, study, whatever it is,
take hold at once and finish It up
squarely and cleanly ; thset do the
next thing, without letting any mo
ments drop between. It is wonder.
L'ul to see how many- hours those
prompt people contrive to make in a

moments that the drawlei-s lost.
:And if you find yourself' where you
have so many things pressmng you
that you hardly know how to begin,
lej; me tell you a secret ; take hold
of the first one that comes to hand,
and you will find the rest all fall into

of wrell drilled soldiers. A man was
once asked how he "accomplished ao
much in his life."
"My father told me,'' was the reply,
'when I had anything to do, to go
and do it.'' T'here is the secret.
Do'a't think it necessary for your
bappiness that every afternoon be
spent in shopping. Homes are not a
mere hotel in which to eat and sleep;
bome work is not mere drudgery, but
useful ministration, to those we love.
