RICHARDS AND MANNING [sticker: Keowee Courier Walhalla, S. C. covers word] SECOND RACE ----------o---------- COOPER ALMOST SECURED ENOUGH VOTES TO GET IN RUNNING. ----------o---------- SMITH BEAT BLEASE BY LARGE MAJORITY ----------o---------- Portner and Shealy, Bothes and Kelley, Aiken and Dominick will also Run Second Race for Offices They Seek. ----------o--------- Columbia, S. C., Aug. 28—Practically complete and official returns do not materially alter the result in the senatorial race as shown by yesterday's tabulation in The Piedmont.

The totals are: Smith, 72,256; Blease, 55,908; Jennings, 2,400; Pollock, 1,696; Smith's majority over Blease is 16,348 and over all his opponents, 12,312.

The returns for governor practically completed and official as shown by a table elsewhere in this issue, make a second race between Richards and Manning necessary. Official tabultion will hardly wipe our Manning's lead of 306 over Cooper, who came that close to getting in the account race. The totals are as follows:

Richards, 26,594; Manning, 25,280; Cooper, 24,983; Clinkscales, 16,963; Irby, 15,280; M. L. Smith, 9,502; C. A. Smith, 5,595; Simms, 2,797; Browning, 1,521; Duncan, 881; Mul[lally?], 629.

In the other races there were no changes from the forecasts made from earlier returns.

For lieutenant governor, A. J. Bethea of Columbia and B. Frank Kelley of Bishopville, will make the second race. Mr. Bethea has a lead of about [4,300?] over Mr. Kelley. The vote for lieutenant governor: Bathea, 50,268; Kelley, 45,959; J. A. Hunter, 20,601; H. M. Hamer, 14,444.

In the race for comptroller general A. W. Jones, the incumbent, has won over James A. Sommersett by 79,285 to 46,000.

For renomination as adjutant general, W. W. Moore has won over M. C. Willis by 28,000, the vote standings: Moore, 70,065; Willis, 51,444.

Thomas H. Peeples has be renominated for attorney general over A. G. Brice by 5,7239, the count [blurry] ings: Peeples, 67,756; Brice 62,021.

In the six cornered race for railroad commisioner, Frank W. Shealy and C. D. Fortner have emerged to make a second race, the advantage so far being with Mr. Shealy, who is about 4,000 ahead of his rival. The votes: Shealy, 32,101; Fortner, 28,443; James Conder, 22,630; John H. Wharton, 20,768; W. L. Witherspoon, 16,143; George W. Fairey, 15918.

In the congressional races, all congressmen were nominated except Aiken, who as [blurry] of yesterday, makes a second race with Dominick. Aiken lacked 510 votes of eliminating three components in the first race, the vote being: Aikin, 11,079; Dominick, 8,710; Horton, 2,648; Evans, 817. ------------------------o------------------------- THE INNESSES IN CALIFORNIA ----------o---------- They Are on Their Way to San Antonio, Texas to be Tried for Murder. ----------o--------- San Francisco, Aug. 28—Victor E.

Today they start to San Antonio, Tex., the scene of their alleged crime. Marshall Nelms, a brother of the missing women, is on the same train. Innes said he is prepared to make a vigorous defense. ------------------------o------------------------- LIST OF CASES TRIED IN RECORDER'S COURT. ----------o--------- The police court docket for today was very light. The first case called before the recorder was one against Hattie Hunt for stealing. Hattie was sentenced $8.50 or seventeen days. The case against Lewis Cole for obtaining goods under false pretences, was continued.

The case against Marlon Abercrombie for disorderly conduct and for carrying an unlawful pistol were also continued until tomorrow.

Mattie Dodson was arraigned on the charge of storing whiskey. She was sentenced $50 or thiry days. Mr. R. P.

W. H. Barton, assistant state agent of the Farm demonstration work.

[column 4, top section] PAN-AMERICAN TRADE FIGURES HAVE BIG TOTALS ----------o---------- FULLY THIRTY PERCENT OF OUR TRADE IS IN THIS HEMISPHERE. ----------o---------- SOME SURPRISING FACTS ARE BROUGHT TO LIGHT ----------o---------- Hold Our Own in North and Central America But Our Trade With South American Falls Far Short of Its Possibilities. ----------o---------- Washington, D. C., Aug. 28—Trade of the United States with other American countries in the fiscal year ended June 30, 1914, aggregated 1,- 303 million dollars, and constituted 30 per cent of the entire commerce handled by domestic ports. Of this large New World commerce, [956?] million was with North America and 347 million with South America.

Our imports from North Amerian countries valued at 427 million dollars in the fiscal year, were chiefly from Canada, Cuba, Mexico, the Central American States, and the British West Indies. Our exports to North American countries, 529 million dollars in value, were chiefly to Canada, 345 million; Cuba, 69 million; and Central America and Mexico, each atbout [30?] million. The United States supplies a larger proportion of the leading countries of North America than any other nation, and in the case of Canada, Central America and Mexico, each about 50 million. The United States supplies a larger proportion of the leading countries of North America than any other nation, and in the case of Canada, Central America, and Cuba, more than all other parts of the world combined.

Of our 223 million dollars' worth of imports from South America, nearly one-half were from Brazil, about 20 per cent from Argentina, and the remainder chiefly from Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, and Peru. Nearly onefourth of our total exports of 125 million dollars' value to South America went to Brazil and over one-third to Argentina. In sharp contrast with the high position of the United States in the North American markets is its low rank among the nations selling goods in South America where, in the case of such important countries as Argentina, Brazil and Chile, only about 15 per cent of the imports were from this country. South America as a whole imported in 1912 over [365?] million dollars'

[article continues on column 5, below map]

worth of foreign goods, but share beginning about 14 per cent.

The relatively small contributions of American manufacturers and exporters to the requirements of the South American markets, draws attention of a recent publication of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce, Department of Commerce, entitled "South America as an Export Field," Special Agents Series No. [51?] and sold by the Public Printer at the nominal price of 25 cents. In that publication Commercial Agent Otto Wilson outlines the conditions necessary for the successful sale of goods, the lines of manufacturers required in South America, and the standing of the leading nations as contributors to those requirements. It is pointed out, for example, that Argentina imports large quantities of manufactures of the class produced in the United States, but that the United Kingdom and Germany supply more of them, as a whole, than this country; while France sells there five times as many automobiles, Germany 20 times as many iron beams, three times as many cotton goods, and Eng-

[article continues on column 6, below map]

land 25 times as much coal and twice as much machinery in that market as the United States. This disparity in favor of European countries extends to many other articles and practically all the countries of South America, each of which is interestingly discussed in the monograph named.

A mere enumeration of a few of the principal articles imported by Brazil will serve to illustrate the opportunities which [blurry] American exporters in that and other South American fields. Arms and ammunition, cars, automobiles, cotton goods, pharmaceutical preparations, electrical apparatus, cutlery, machinery, leather, printing paper, perfumeries, [tin late?] soap, and wearing apparel, all of which are bought in large quantities, and in practically every case are obtained more largely from England, Germany and France than from the United States. The government's "Daily Consular and Trade Reports" are also presenting cable dispatches from South America which indicate the special needs of these markets owing to the supplies from Europe being cut off.

LESSON IX.—AUGUST 30, 1914. A Day of Questons. Matthew XXII. 15.22 Memory Verses, 16, 17.

15. Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

16. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

17. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18. But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19. Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21. They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

21. When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

Golden Text.—Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. [faded out] ----------o---------- Life's Larger Loyalties—The International Sunday School Lesson for August 30 is, "A Day of Questions," Matt 23: 15-22.

Every close reader of hisory, whether it be written in books or in the daily newspaper, has been struck by the [blurry] of the spectacle of the opposition which great statesmen and leaders have met that was not sincere and disinterested. It [blurry] partisan, personal and petty objections to public programs, merely to harass a foe. The trick is one of the oldest and most pronoun in public affairs, and it is still a blatant example as it was when the [shrewed?] politicians of Jesus' day used in an attempt to confound and discredit him.

The crafty [faded out] of the Pharisee [quickly?] sent their underlings to the Teacher for chose feet they were laying snares of death with a net of questions, in truth, so eager were these hounds in present of the [faded out] that the Pharisee pack joined members with the Herodian pack, although except when some great common hunt like the [prophet?] was at [faded] , these two packs howled at each other and fought at every meeting. But every [crime?] requires compromise and if the Nazarene was to be caught, both the Pahrisees and the Herodians had to swallow their scruples against each other. The present [czar?] in Europe illustrates how a common for [faded] strange bedfellows.

The hostile questions—in smooth so [faded], so religious, so appropriate—which these emmisaries propounded to Jesus were not sincere. An honest debtor, beset by preplexities, and sympathy in heaven; had a crafty [faded out] business twister of truth and fellowship only with the lower regions. These [remainder of paragraph faded]

[next 3 paragraphs faded out]

How they may have jumped—and how we would jump too, if our duplicity were uncovered with the same [faded out] and candor—when Jesus, in the [faded out] words of the [faded out] and sincere and came by at the obsequious questioners on the [faded out] with, "Ye hypocrites!"

A Great Answer To a Clever Question.

All [faded] the question was a [faded], Not in vain had the shrewdest lawyers of Jerusalem foundn it. If [Jesus?] said, categorically, "Pay tribute to Caesar," all the Jewish [faded] would turn against him; that cost [multitude?] of followers, whom his enemies found. If, on the other

hand, he bade the people refuse tribute to Caesar, then Rome would make short shift of him, as a rebel and a traitor.

An object-teacher and a pictureteacher to the last, Jesus asked his questioners to show him a damarius. The procured the familiar small coin, worth about sixteen cents. Again Jesus spoke, "Whose is this image and superscription?"


"Render therefore unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God."

Silence. Crestfallen looks. A confused retreat, while the crowd grinned. The sharp lawyers had been caught in their own trap. The ruse had failed. By lifting up his anser in theh plane of a great principle, and illustrating it, Jesus had put the case where even these hair-splitters could not gainsay it.

Defining Our Loyalties.

Everybody is a doctor. We speak of "paying our moral obligation" when we mean preserving the petty [faded] of cards and calls and [??] and receptions. Our most social obligations are vastly larger. They involve the paying of our debts to our fellow man, in organized society; in the [faded] and in the individual contacts of life. Their [square?] perfectly with the larger [faded] to God thus of his will. Often we prove that we are true to God by being true to man.

Caesar's name and image is on many of our possessions. We owe civil society a dept for the protection it affords us; for the roads it builds, the mails it carries, for the [stores?] and schools and the protection it provides; and for the countless ordered usage of our organized life. No honest man can be an individualist denying the claims of the state upon him in the twentieth century. "The strength of the wolf is the pack."

Then Caesar laid down by the [faded] of life-gaps modern man in truer citizenship. The man who does not vote at every election, did vote in the fear of God, has violated the injunction to "render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's." A new vision of Christian citizenship has been caught by people in this our day. Old slavish [faded] allegiances have been cast off, as unworthy of independent [faded]. "Bosses" find it increasingly hard to control the waters; they are taking their obligation to Caesar more sacredly nowadays.

The truth is being squarely found that the person who is not definately doing some form of public service, whether it be helping to get out careless voters on election day, or putting all the power he possesses into [remainder of paragraph faded out]

----------o---------- The World's War Against War— Terse Comments on the Uniform Prayer Meeting Topic of the Young People's Societies—Christian En-- deavor, Etc.—for August 30. "Why and How to Abolish War," [Isa.?] 65: 17-25.

In these days it is well to watch closely the [mere?] wold's horizon, in case changes are taking place. The time has come to think in large units, and study world maps. ----------o---------- The whole earth is reeling. Even the staggering shock of war, even as [faded] All the nations of Europe are fighting for the [faded] for the free and the wold's [faded] country is affected by this vast [faded], this horrible human holocaust. Perhaps it is in this awful school, since nation would learn in no other, that the God of nations is teaching the lesson of universal peace. After the great [faded have crushed and spent and exhausted one another; and after the savage and [faded] [faded] of the world's young managed; [faded] paralysis of the product or processes of civilization, then and not until then, men will learn to submit themselves to the healthy sway of the Prince of Peace. ----------o---------- Whatever promotes the spirit of common sympathy and good will di[faded] against war.

The Christian [illegible] should be the chief support of the [peace?] cause, for she is [illegible] custodian of the [faded]. "Peace on earth good will to men." Still, it must be submitted that in this, as in other of the larger responsibilities, the church has failed to rise to the magnitude of her task. Only belatedly are the forces of organized Christendom surging into line behind this cause which is so closely allied to the birth and spirit of Our Lord. The church should be the worlds' most active and effective proponent of peace. ----------o---------- Whatever promotes intercourse and knowledge and sympathy among mankind serves the cause of [mere?] [fiery?] steampship ticket is a log of peace liturature. ----------o---------- What President Nicholas Murray Butler calls an "International mind" must procede the success of of peace. There must be some understanding of the viewpoint of other peoples before there can be an abatement of the [blurry] which promote war. ----------o---------- The soul that is too big for hate is great enough to be God's home. ----------o---------- Renders of the dispatches from Mexico have been horrified over the atrocities reported. That men should be robbed of their property, women of their virtue, and all classes of their lives, appears to our twentieth [cut off]

never has been a war that has not had these terrible [blurry]. War means pillage and outrage and violent death and cruel injustice of many kinds. So it was before the days of Abraham; so it was in the Balkan war, and in all the wars between. There never has been a "civilized" war; it is a reversion to the methods and spirit of primitive, vengeful brute force. ----------o---------- Every international organization— Christian Endeavor, Sunday school, the Young Men's Christian Association, scientific societies and work congresses—helps prepare the way for ultimate peace. When people know one another well, they will not fight against one another. ----------o---------- Christian missions are an antidote for war. They not only promote general acquaintance, but also the spirit of Jesus, which is unalterably opposed to war. ----------o---------- Let us count the cost of war in terms of the children not born, because their potential leaders were killed on the battlefields, the wives unwed because businesses were [blurry], of inventions not invented because war's [bullets?] lost now the [blurry] air of promise of books not written, as paintings not created, of notes not composed, because the geniuses to whom the world might have looked have fallen on the battlefields; of fields not tilled because the farmers died holding rifles of statesmen who were plucked [blurry] by the [blurry] at war— the imagination fairly rocks as it contemplates the cost of war in what "might have been." ----------o---------- Before war can be displaced it must be replaced. Professor James was profoundly right in calling for "a moral equivalent of war." Business is not such a problem. It must be something that makes its appeal to the [blurry] passions. It is not the new spirit of social service of a reorganized social system, of a patriotism founded on altruism, the very impulse which the philospher sought. Here is the call to sacrifice, and to a divine loyalty. The noblest passions that human breast can hold are aroused by the [titanic?] [blurry] [blurry] to help all men become brothers; and so to usher in that golden age which we call the kingdom of heaven. ------------------------o------------------------- [return to column 3, bottom section]

AFTER HOSPITALS AND DOCTORS FAILED—EX-ZEMA-FOCURED. ----------o---------- D. Holmes, [blurry] Park, Long Island, N. Y., writes: "While you have not asked for a testimonial, I feel that it is due. A preparation such as EX-ZEMA-FO should be known to everyone. I was a sufferer of that terrible disease called eczema for seven years, doctored with the most eminent New York specialists and several various Skin Hospitals to the expense of over $300. Two bottles of EX-ZEMA-FO cured me. and the best of all was that I was able to bive up the use of a salve, which was what they prescribed. Your remedy EX-ZEMA-FO is a clean liquid, did not soil my linen and went right to the spot.

GRANDMA NEVER LET HER HAIR GET GRAY ----------o---------- Kept her Locks Youthful, Dark, Glossy and Thick With Common Garden Sage and Sulphur. ----------o---------- When you darken your hair with Sage Tea and Sulphur, no one can tell, because it's done so naturally, so evenly. Preparing this mixture, though, at home is messy and troublesome. For 30 cents you can buy at any drug store the ready-touse tonic called "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy." You just dampen a sponge or a soft brush with it and draw this through you hiar, caking one small strand at a time and, after another application or two, your hair becomes beautifully darkened, glossy and luxuriant. You will also discover dandruff is gone and hair has stopped falling.

Gray, faded hair, though no disgrace, is a sign of old age, and as we all desire a youthful and attractive appearance, get busy at once with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur and look years younger.—Avd. ------------------------o------------------------- [advertisement for Greenville Ice & Fuel, spans cols 6-7]

LAST GOLF TOURNAMENT TO BE HELD SEPT. 8 ----------o---------- The annual golf tournament for the Sirrine cup will be played on the San Souci links commencing Steptember 8. The qualifying rounds will be held on the 5 and 7.

This is the last of the series of tournaments played during the open season and it is sure to be exceedingly interesting. The cup was won in 1912 by Dr. J. W. Jervey and in 1913 by J. W. Arrington. Mr. Arrington believes that he will be able to repeat the stunt of last year and carry off the trophy for the second time.

The handicap committee, composed of Messrs. Milan, Cothran and Mayo are now at work revising the handicaps. The list of these will be published next week. Besides the main prize there will be the usual line of trophies given in the various events. The tournament will be match play for 30 holes. ------------------------o------------------------- FEDERAL LEAGUE ----------o---------- St. Louis, Aug. 28.—Rain and darkness stopped a tie game between St. Louis and Chicago in the 10th inning yesterday with the score 3 to 3.

In January 1911, Coleman Livingston Blease was inaugurated governor. That day in traveling the road of his life he came to a place where it forked. He was at perfect liberty to take either the right or the left hand highway where the road forked. He had to make a choice. While the choice was being made his destiny trembled in the balance. In his inaugural his decision was shown as to the path he would travel. He could have pitched his address upon a high and lofty place, he could have forgiven his enemies, poured balm upon wounded spirits and proclaimed a purpose to be what a governor should be, the governor of all the people. That was one road he could have taken and by taking it he would have lost enemies, not friends. He would have confounded those who were predicting that his administration would not add to the peace, happiness and prosperity of the state. They would have been struck dumb. He had a wonderful opportunity to seek to prove he was a broad patriot and not a narrow partisan. He could have made thousands who had voted against him feel that he had been misjudged or misrepresented, or both. Had he calmly and temperately discussed public questions and invited the backing of those who had opposed his election, had he urged them to support him in his work for the progress of South Carolina, he would have made himself the strongest man in the state. What a golden chance he had that day, such a chance as seldom comes more than once in a lifetime and to but few men at that.

But Blease chose the other road. Elected as a factional candidate he preferred to be a factional governor and his inaugural address was far more of a stump speech than a state paper. Right then and there he made it certain that his triumph would be temporary. Had a stronger man, the more versed in politics and more forceful on the stump, opposed him two years ago, we would have had a one term governor. But he managed to get a re-election by a narrow margin and in his second term was even more highly partisan then in his first.

And now the [stormy price?] of South Carolina politics [blurry] to private life, but not to the vantage point of a county that he can surely carry as has been the case heretofore when he has suffered defeat in state politics.

It is a pity that he chose the road he did. A man with the magnetism he must have [weld?] to himself so large a personal following had great chance for effective serevice, if [blurry] have broad vision and high ideals. ------------------------o------------------------- HASTY JUDGMENT.

When the War started, because he is the head of a great military power Kaiser Wilhelm was generally thought to have estimated to use his power to protect it. Though inexorable logic proves Germany had everything to lose and nothing to [cut off]

[column 2]

war for military glory and aggrandizement. One of the first to blame Germany was Andrew Carnegie, who urged all men of peace to hold Kaiser Wilhem guiltily accountable for the war. But, after reflection, Carnegie's views are changing, as are those of thousands of others, who are beginning to see the monstrous improbability of the charge that a nation which has never warred for territorial aggrandizement and which was prospering more than any other should desire a war which would destroy its prosperity and might even cause a loss of its independence. After thinking it over, Carnegie sent this message to the London Times for publication:

'The German Emperor has not been proven guilty. I believe he has been more sinned against than sinning. Rulers are seldom overruled, but they are unable to control conditions of international quarrels. History alone will record the truth. The Emperor, who alone of all living monarchs preserved peace for twentysix years, is now entitled to the benefit of the doubt.'

When it is all over and impartial historians review The War, we feel sure that the German emperor will get better than a Scotch verdict of "not proven" as to the charge that he was responsible, directly or indirectly, for causing the cataclysmal conflict. ------------------------o------------------------- THEN AN NOW.

Fifty years ago today the world's first railway mail car was given its official test. Two mice were responsible for the idea. Before that day the mail was distributed according to addresses at certain designated postoffices, which usually were the distributing points of whole states. It was slow and laborious work. At one of these distributing points, Green Bay, Mich., a pair of mice made their home in a pouch that had lain in the postoffice for several days. When the pouch finally reached its destination, near the upper shores of Lake Superior, the recieving postmaster found not only the rodent home-seekers, but also a large family of little mice. They had made beds of chewed-up letters. The post-master reported the matter to the Chicago office and sent along the mice as an exhibit, which are received by George B. Armstrong, the assistant postmaster. To preven a repetition of such an occurance, Armstrong sought to speed up the mail service, and finally evolved the idea of having the mail distributed on the trains while in transit. The plan was ridiculed. One man declared: "The government will have to employ a regiment of men to follow the trains to pick up the letters that would be blown out of the cars." However, the first postal car, an ordinary baggage car equipped with racks and pigeon holes, made the initial run from Chicago to Clinton, Iowa, fifty years ago today.

Today every nation in the civilized world is distributing a large part of its mail matter in railway mail cars. In the United States over 18,000 railway mail clerks are separating over 90 per cent of all the mail originating in this country and a large volume coming from foreign lands. They have saparated in a single year nearly 23,000,000,000 pieces of mail matter, not including registered mail. They travel an aggregate distance of 500,000,000 miles every year on the 27,000 domestic transportation routes having a combined mileage of 450,000 miles. The service has been raised to the highest point of efficiency today and the present ratio of errors in distribution has been reduced to one in 10,000 pieces of mail. The clerks are expected to distribute the mail so that there wil be no rehandling in the postoffices of large cities and to separate it into packages, corresponding with each mail carrier's soute in the cities. In the case of the largest cities they must separate it according to section of sub stations. Considering the speed at which the clerks sort the mail, the swaying of the train plunging along at 50 miles per hour, the thousands of railway connecting points, the locations of over 60,00 postoffices in the United States, and the illegibility of the hand written addresses, it becomes a marvel how the railway mail clrk can work without a greater proportion of errors. ------------------------o------------------------- THE BIRDMEN.

The great difficulty about making intelligent comment upon the progress of The War is the lack of authentic information upon which to base comment. Not only are false reports being sent out from some official [blurry], magnifying skirmishes into battles and turning defeats into victories, but correspondents unable to get to the scene of conflict or to obtain news are eveidently drawing upon fertile imaginations to earn their pay. To further complicate the situation, some newspapers in this country are publishing as cablegrams from Europe stores which bear intrinsic evidence of having been composed in their own offices. Only omniscience can tell what is true and what is false in the maze of alleged [cut off]

[column 3]

the early days of the war Raoul Garros, an intrepid French aviator, heroically rammed a German Zeppelin with the biplane in which he was flying, gladly sacrificing his life in order to inflict greater loss upon the enemy. We were also told that every French aviator had sworn to do the same thing when he had the opportunity.

Many, many volumes could be filled with the editorials lauding Garros' feat that were published in this country. For instance the Slate went into ecstasies over the "spirituality of courage" shown by Garros and we were assured that only the French could show such "spirituality of courage," whatever that may be. If Garros really performed the feat ascribed to him it was worthy of all praise save that which made an invidious comparison. Bravery, even of the highest type, is not monoplized by any race, color, nationality or creed. All can rise to the highest heights of daring or sink to the deepest depths of cowardice.

It seems terrible to rob the French of the glory of that exploit of Garros, of which American papers printed pictures drawn by imaginative artists, but it may never have occurred at all. The New York Times publishes a dispatch from the Hague in which a Hollander paper is quoted as stating that it had heard from a friend of Garros to the effect that the latter is alive and well and never rammed a Zeppelin as reported.

Better authenticated, because coming from the enemies' camps, are the stories of the heroism of a German acronaut who, during the greate battle on the Franco-Belgian frontier, hovered over the lines of the allies, despite all their efforts to destroy him, and signaled to the Germans the location of the allies, so that they, knowing the exact range, could place their shells where they would do tremendous execution. While that was not as spectacular as the deed credited to Garros, it was far more effective and needed substantial courage and not the supreme resolution of a moment's heroism. ------------------------o------------------------- A GOOD EXAMPLE.

The announcement that the Southern, the South's greatest railroad system, has just let additional contracts for double-tracking and that this work is to be begun immediately will be welcomed not only because of its promise of needed and speedy improvement of this section's transportation facilities but as a demonstration of the confidence in the soundness of conditions in this country. The millions it will spend in the South for its improvements will be small in their benefit to our business in comparison with the good that will flow from the practical example of faith in the future of this section and in the present of the whole country. If we all keep our heads and go steadily or with execution of our plans and purposes, just as if there were no war in Europe, no harm can come to this country from ther interruption of its commerce with European countries. Hurrah for Southrn. Every dollar spent now in improvements is a dollar doubly well invested. May the Southern's example be followed by all of us to the limit of our abilities. ------------------------o------------------------- A SAFETY CHECK.

The charge against Blease was that he stirred up factionalism. We hope there will be no other factionalism. There should be no hard feelings. The majority decided and there should be acquiescence in its will.

In some of his speeches, Governor Blease made threats that if he were defeated he would do direful things during the remainder of his term as Governor.

We trust that that was just campaign thunder. It will be deplorable if bad feelings are stirred up. But if common sense does not lead Blease to accept the result gracefully, the tremendous anti-Blease majority in the legislature will doubtless make him sit up and take notice. He would not want it recorded in the legislative journals of this state that he was impeached. The general assembly will meet and organize before he goes out of office as govenor. It is said that nine out of ten members of the new house are anti-Blease. ------------------------o------------------------- ONE BRIGHT SPOT.

War has its courtesies as well as its necessities. When Germany faced a world in arms rather than desert her eldest friend in the family of nations, it became a military necessity for her armies to pass therough Belgium. Though the Belgians are not friendly to the Germans and were expected to side with France and England, Germany doubless regretted that force was necessary. A nation fighting for its life against a colassal combination of foes could take no chances. The Belgians were told that if they permitted passage of the German armies no harm would be done them and payment would be made for all damage, and none of their territory would be taken at the [cut off]

[column 4]

not, their neutrality beem violated.

The first [occasion?] to passage of the German armies was made at Liege, where there was a gallant defense of the forts. In command of Liege was Generam Liman, who had never seen active service. He held his post bravely. When the fort in which he was stationed was smashed by the terrific German artillary fire, he was found pinned down by debris. Taken before Gen. von Emmich, he offered his sword in token of surrender. It was handed back to him as evidence of the appreciation of his bravery. That courtesy is one of the few bright spots in the sombre picture of The War that have been coming to us.. Brave men appreciate the courage of their opponents. ------------------------o------------------------- PUT IN A HOLE.

Over in North Carolina the Republicans have certainly put the Democrats in a [state?] by promulcating a more Democratic platform than the Democrats themselves put forth. The Republic platform contains planks advocating principles and policies that the Democratic masses, though not the Democratic houses, of North Carolina favor. The Tarheel Democratic papers are having a hard time trying to make the worse appear the better platform. For instance, here is a paragraph from the Durham Herald:

"While the Republicans declared for a state-wide legalized primary, there is no telling whether they did this because the wanted it or simply in the hope of embarrassing certain Democratic leaders."

If we were editing a Democratic paper in North Carolina, we would freely and frankly admit that, thanks to the manipulation of the Democratic bosses our party has the worse plaform , once election of the Democratic candidates on the basis of comparison of pas administrations in North Carolina by Republicans and Democrats and wage a vigorous campaign to drive out of power in the Democracy those politician responsble for the anomalous situation of the Democratic party going into a campaign with a less Democratic platform that that of their Republican opponents. ------------------------o------------------------- The change in the French cabinet is just what was to be expected when the French began to be defeated.

A Welcome Respite.

The political howling will soon be over in South Carolina for another two years. Let the calamity howling be eliminted along with it. Get down to Business,—Rock Hill Herald. ----------o---------- Better Teach It Now.

We do not like the Japs mixing up in the row between Germans and the English, French and Russians. It is a white man's fight with which the little yellow man should have had nothing to do. Sooner or later the Japs will have to be taught a lesson. —Orangeburg Times and Democrat. ----------o---------- All Together.

South Carolina wants just now union and fellowship. The victory has been over a bad political system, rather than over fellow South Carolinians. Let there be no gloating in personal triumph as over some foreign foe. Because 'they have rubbed it into us for two years ago,' is no reason for us to rub it into them now. It was not a good thing for them to do; and less would it be a good thing now. —Newberry Observer. ----------o---------- Fighting Odds.

We are not taking sides in the great European conflict, but recent developments force us to the conclusion that the Kaiser's men are some strategists and some fighters. The odds are heavily against Germany, but she will only be licked at an immense toll. Many a ship and many a soldier will go down before, if ever, she is conquered or beaten, either on land or sea, is our belief.—Hartsville Messenger. ----------o---------- An Easy Life?

There is a prevalent belief that a preacher takes life easy, and reaps where he does not sow.

The other day I talked with a preacher who mentioned being tired. He had preached 29 sermons and made 51 calls in two weeks.

Think of 29 sermons in a room filled with sweating people, breathing close air. Think of talking and gesturing for an hour, twice a day with a heavy coat and high collar on, and the thermometer above ninety.

Then consider that two weeks may have been absolutely wasted— may have accomplished nothing!

The preacher is welcome to his job, so far as I am concerned.—Fountain Inn Tribune. ------------------------o------------------------- What Others Say.

Amen! Amen!!

We should recall all missionaries from China and other heathen lands and send them to Europe.—[blotted] Herald. ----------o---------- Woful Waste.

If the immense sums that are now being expended in the destructive work of war could be diverted into constructive channels what wonderful things could be accomplished! Economically and otherwise, war is terrible calamity. It is certainly to be hoped the present conflict will be of brief duration—Winston Sentinel. ----------o---------- Has Nine Lives.

The Crown Prince of Germany has been killed on the field of battle twice, wounded thrice and banished to the Russian frontier to take charge of the German army all in the short space of thirty-six hours, if one would believe the reports coming in regarding this young man. Must have the nine lives of the proverbial black cat.—Raleigh News and Observer. ----------o---------- Thanks to Napoleon.

The beet sugar industry owes its origin to the genius of Napoleon Bonniparte. During his reign sugar had become more than a luxury and was much sought. As England controlled both the [seas?] and the sugar industry of the West Indies, he conceived the idea of developing the beet sugar industry so that the French might be made independent of the rest of the world so far as its sugar supply was concerned. Our sugar [bucks? beets?] are full of the history of the gradual development of the industry, the extreme [?inn] of the beet juice by the old roller mills and later by hydraulic presses, and we might say only recently by diffusion, and this great industry, producing now nearly half the sugar of the world, is the child of his brain. —Houston Post.

"Very poor," was the reply.

"You don't say so! And how was Mary Lamping as the Goddess of Liberty?"

"No, she got locked up."—New Orleans States. ----------o---------- Deceived.

Little Willie was left alone with sister's beau.

"Mr. Chumpley," he presently said "What is a popinjay?"

Sister's beau wrinkled his forehead.

VEST POCKET ESSAY Volcanoes By GEORGE PITCH Author of "At Good Old Copywrited by George Mathew

A VOLCANO is a mountain which is insurging against the universe.

Most mountains are quiet and wellbehaved, remaining in the same spot year after year and allowing tourists and other insects to swarm over them and among them without protest. But the volcano has a system of manners that is all its own. It is connected directly with the furnace room in the earth's interior and whenever it gets peevish or dissatisfied with the government it erupts.

When a volcano erupts it does things on a grand and awful scale. It blows its top off, throws ten-ton boulders through the nearest postoffice puffs smoke three miles into the zenith, spits fire at the dog star, spills melted rock over half a dozen townships, emits roars which can be heard a hundred miles, rocks the surrounding country until the buildings get [seasick?] of brimstone that it smells like a theatre during a Paris Revue. Nothing is more terrifying than a volcano when it is in full cry except perhaps an I. W. W. orator who is explaining on a soap box why he is entitled to eternal rest.

Volcanoes are very fatal, not because they are so violent, but because they are so placid between outbreaks. After a volcano has blown itself limp and empty it sometimes sleeps for a hundred years, while fields grow over its site and people build towns with joyful abandon just in the wrong

HEALTH TALKS By WILLIAM BRADY Acetanilide the "Harmless"

BEFORE you take your next dose of headache powder, "cold" or "grip" cure, neuralgia, pill or readyreliefforthattiredfeeling, hold the label up to the light and read thereon this legend:

Each ounce contains 56 grains Acetanilide. Guaranteed under the Pure Food and Drugs Act, June 30, 1986.

But don't let that stop you. The poison is none the less "harmless" for being mentioned on the label. The law merely requires mention of the dangerous ingredient in case you should die suddenly, you understand. Acetanilide, sometimes called phenylacetamide, and Phenacetin, sometimes called [Acethphocoetidin?], are two drugs with practically identical action. Antifebrin is another [blurry] for poison derived from coal tar.

The Danger.

Now acetanilide is a good pain reliever when rightly used. It is included in the United States Pharmacopoeia, the standard list of drugs for physicians. But, like man y other good medicines, acetanilide is poisonous, expending its power mostly on the heart and the blood. The very persons who are most subject to "colds," "grip," headache, neuralgia and that-tired-feeling, can least afford to imperil the strength of their hearts and blood.

Two grains of acetanilide is the average quantity contained in pills, tablets or capsules sold under the fake "guarantee" of the benevolent government. Such a dose, repeated hourly for two or three times, fills the blood with an amount of heart-depressing poison equal to or greater than the maximum safe dose for a normal individual, to say nothing of an invalid.

The Result.

Then comes a strange, numb, fluttery sensation, perhaps a faintness or a sense of want of air. This is the first effect. Next the lips an fingernails assume a dark, bluish tint—the blood is being changed by the poison, oxygen crowded out of the red blood corpuscles. If a larger does or many doses have been taken, nausea and heaart failure soon appear. And much more often the public is aware

TURKEY GROWS RESTIVE WHILE WAR PROCEEDS ---------o---------- CONSTANTINOPLE PAPERS CREATE STONGER PRO-GERMANY FEELING. ---------o---------- OTTOMAN EMPIRE IS FILLED WITH EXCITEMENT ---------o---------- Germany Wishes Turkey to Remain Neutral, But Thinks Should Mobilize to Resist Russian Attempt to Sieze the Dardanelles. ---------o---------- Washington, August 27.—Tension is so acute in Constantinople that diplomats fear that Turkey may at any moment be drawn into the general European war on the side of Germany and Austria.

A strict censorship has been placed on newspapers in Turkey, which are now controlled by the military, and are being used, according to diplomatic dispatches here, to create a strong Pro-German feeling.

The Turkish cabinet is wavering between a declaration of war and the preservation of neutrality. Diplomatic representatives of the various powers are in constant conference with the government officials. Great Britain and Russia endeavoring to keep Turkey neutral. The German ambassador, it is understood, has intimated that while German [blotted] Turkey to remain neutral. [blotted] eves the Ottoman should mobilize to prevent an invasaion by Russia.

Feeling is most acute over the entry into the Darandelles of the German [cruisers?] Goeben and Breslau. Great Britain, Russia and France ten days ago requested that if these ships were purchased by Turkey the crews be sent to either Germany or Austria, and promised them safe conduct. Today many of the German sailors are still on board and 150 or more are said to have distributed among Turkish torpedo boats.

The British government is observing these incidents, with much disfavor, and the situation has been aggravated by the inability of several English merchant ships to pass through the Dardanelles and return after the Grand Vizier had given the requisite permisson. Subordinate official disobeyed the instructions in a way as yet unexplainable.

Great Britain has let it be known that if the Goebun and Breslau enter the Mediterranean with German crews aboard they will be fired on by the English fleet.

Neither Great Britain or Russia has assumed a threatening attitude, diplomatically hoping to persuade Turkey to remain neutral. A few days ago the Russian ambassador was requested t ocease using the wireless on a Russian vessel in the harbor. He acquiesced. ------------------------o------------------------- MORE INDEPENDENCE FOR UNITED STATES ---------o---------- (Greensboro News) That the European war may have the effect of making the United States less dependent on foreign countries and particularly on Germnay, for many manufactured products and for many experiments of scientific and other nature, in substance was the opinion of a transient visitor in Greensboro yesterday. This gentleman, who is a well known educator, was speaking in the light of history, and aside from any personal expression as to either of the [belligerent?] continued his remarks to the position this country is necessarily placed in.

The war of 1812, said he, marked the beginning of manufacturing in the United States on a large scale, making the people of this country more self-dependent in supply of their needs. The colonies had not been permitted to engage in manufacturing, being compelled to purchase abroad, and there had been quite a little of it from the close of the revolutionary war to the second war with England.

It was then that the Yankee became concerned more than ever with the supplying of his own needs. It was then, too, commented the speaker that the first protectorate tariff was secured, being advocated by the New England manufacturers.

While he did not go into the new avenues of human endeavor that might be opened in the United States beause of the European war, he indicated by general references that they ought to be great. The fact that [articles] have been supplied from Germany or from any other country alone to him did not appear to be a bar to similar endeavors in the United States. ------------------------o------------------------- LEVER BILL REPORTED ---------o---------- The lever bill is the first of the proposed measures to relieve the cotton industry from depressing effects of the European war.

THE "WOMAN REBEL" EDITOR IS INDICTED ---------o--------- Accused of Sending by Mail Paper Advocating Assasination in Social Reform. ---------o--------- New York, Aug. 27—Mrs. Margaret H. Sanger, editor of the Woman Rebel, a monthly publication dedicated to the emancipation of womankind and acknowledging "No Gods or Masters," was arraigned Tuesday before United States District Court Judge Hazel on an indictment charging her with violating the postal laws by sending through the mails copies of her paper in which she advocated assassination and the use of dynamite in social reform.

Two other indictments charge her with publishing "obscene, filthy, vile and indecent" articles concerning sex knowledge.

On the recommendation of Assistant United States Attorney Harold A. Content she was released on her own recognizance after entering a temporary plea of not guilty.

The Woman Rebel was stopped recently by the postal authorities. It claims for women the right to unmarried mothers, the right to destroy the right to create, the right to live and the right to love. It advocates scientific methods of decreasing the birth rate and promises articles of instruction on this point in future issues.

The relationship between these objects and the espousal of I. W. W. principles is not made clear in the magazine, but Mrs. Sanger declares that they are closely allied because of their common tendency to uplift society.

In the July issue of the Rebel Mrs. Sanger, in an editorial, eulogizes Caron Berg and Hanson, the youths killed by the explosion of a bomb which they are supposed to have made for use in Tarrytown.

"Even if the dynamite were to serve no other purpose than to bring forth the spirit of revolutionary solidarity and loyalty," Mrs. Sanger says, "it would prove its great value."

In an accompanying article entitled "A Defense of Assassination," Herbert A. Thorne declares that under some conditions assassination is a high expression of the assassin's outraged nature.

"Boycott, sabotage and assasination," the author holds, "are the weapons at the disposal of the working class in its fight against the better educated and privileged classes.

Mrs. Sanger is a trained nurse by profession. Before starting her magazine, she says, she and her husband went to Europe for a scientific study of moral customs in some of the more advanced countries.

"I left my husband in Paris," said Mrs. Sanger, laughingly, "and I'm afraid he can't get back here to help me just now." ------------------------o------------------------- "HOME COMING" BEGINS AT CLEMSON COLLEGE ---------o--------- The Great Home Coming Week at Clemson Begins Today. A Large Attendance is Expected and a Great Time is being Looked for. ---------o--------- The great "Home Coming" of the ex-Clemson students begins at Clemson College today. Almost twentyfive students of the college will go to Clemson for the occasion. A great time is expected as the faculty are working to have over two thousand exstudents in attendance. The vent lasts until the 31st of the month. The lectures, chapel exercises and meals will all be held in the old school manner.

During the occasion there will be addresses by a number of ex-students of the college and also by members of the present faculty. There will be a full Lyceum course during the week and the Clemson band will furnish music for the occasion. The ex-students will pay inspection visits to the different departments and athletic field. There will be ball games between picked teams of the students and everything possible will be done to make the week one of the best of its kind ever held. ------------------------o------------------------- CASE OF LEN DUNN BROUGHT TO TRIAL ---------o--------- The Case of Len Dunn for Murder Was Brought Before the Court This Morning—It Will Probably Go to the Jury This Afternoon or Early Tomorrow—Luther Hawkins Will Plead Not Guilty. ---------o--------- The case of Len Dunn for murdering Riberson in Davis Best [?] join near Duncan Mill last February was brought before the court for trial to day. All the witnesses were examined this morning and the case will be argued this afternoon. It is very probably that it will go to the jury late this afternoon.

The case of Luther Hawkins charged with Bigamy will probably be through before the court either this afternoon or early tomorrow. It was at first thought that Hawkins intended to plead not guilty and that he would fight hard for his victory but he has now decided that as there is so much evidence against him it will be better for him to plead guilty and rest on the mercy of the court. ------------------------o------------------------- CARD OF THANKS.
