cortain occasions. That the article is
not without merit is evidenced by its
appearance In the columns of the Sun,
and again in our Newberry conteinpo

this extent-the article in ( tuestionl was
written for the Anderson Journal over
two months ago, and was writtun here
in out office by one of on' regular stall',
