E. H. AULL, EDITOR. The measure passed this week by the house of representatives regula ting the riding of bicycles or auto mobiles outside the corporate limits of towns or cities would practically prohibit the use of these machines except in cities and towns. A great deal of stir has been oc casioned in Columbia by the publi cation in the State newspaper sev eral days ago of an article on shop lifting. In the article it was stated that one of the largest merchants in Columbia had systematically prac ticed a system of Aackmail against the shoplifters whom he caught, making them pay $25 and sign a confession. It was said that a num ber of ladies had been detected and had signed the confession and paid over their money and "only a short time ago a student in one of these colleges was caught, and the poor little girl has not yet finished pay ing her ante. She is paying it on the installment plan. $2 to $5 a month. That girl is the daughter -but that shall not be even vaguelv hinted." T...

MARRIED I",NEW IEXICO. A Young Lady, Formerly of Helena, Weds Far From Her Old Home. Not a great many years ago a bright, happy and pretty little girl played in the village grove i,ear her father's house and won all hearts by her sweet and sunny dis position and gentle manners. She was the youngest daughter of Mr. W. A. Pitts, and everybody liked to be with "little Callie" and to hear the prattle of her girlish tongue. She followed her married sister to a far-off home and has ever since been lost to the sight of her child hood friends by the many miles which separated them. The years glided by and the little girl grew into the glorious period of young womanhood, ful filling the promise of her early days that lingered as a beautiful dream in the memory of those she left in the vill.ge where first she saw the trees and the flowers and heard the singing of the birds in the spring time of her life. With the coming of the year% came the glad time of her wedding day, and now from 'etters ...

ALIVE IN A TUOM. Experience of a Man Who Awoke to Find That He Had Been Interred. New Orleans Times Democrat. "Did you ever kick yourself out of a coffin, simultaneously maing the discovery that you had been buried?" asked a man who had been in a trance. "But it matters but little if you did, as far as the story is con cerned, and I want to say that I had a most peculiar experience one evening as I broke out of a coffin and popped from a tomb, and into the most spectral cemetery I ever saw. Mind you, I am not a man to take myself seriously; I invariably let life take care of itself-except when I find that I am locked up in a casket. However, it is not my purpose to deal to any great extent with the horror that attends an awakening within the charnel-, house; for that side of the story is not the most salient part. I will re serve the conclusion of the latter for the end. I have several times fallen into trances, and it was during my last trance, which, in duration, sur passed any of...

A Stylish Man. General R. R. Hemphill, clerk of the senate, writing to his paper, the Abbeville Medium, says of Ser geant-at-Arms J. .F. Schumpert, who is a Newberry man: The senate chamber was in excel lent condition when the session oDened. Sergeant at Arms Schum pert caLue down some days before the meeting and had everything in good order. The beautiful carpet looked fresh. The desks had been brushed up and put in place. The chairs and sofas had been looked after. The uprights supporting the galleries were painted anew and touched with gilt to harmonize with the picture frames on the walls. The brass railings around the Pres ident's stand and the galleries were resplendent and the work was equal to that of Sir. Joseph Porter K. C. B., who "polished off the handle of the big front door." Sergeant Schumpert is a man of fine taste and knows exactly what is necessary about the Senate chamber and how to put things in order. He has per fect knowledge of all his duties, is a very handso...

COUNCIL DECLINES TO SUSPEND LICENSE TA.. HEARTTLY FAVORS FUNDING THE IN TEREST BEARING DEBT. Highly Probable That Levy Could Be Re duced to Four ills Should Debt Be Funded At Once. City council met on Monday night and acted on the recommen-. dations of the recent meeting of citizens as embodied in the com munication adopted by citizens and forwarded to council. This com munication has been published. As will be seen from the reply to the communication printed below, council declines to suspend the: license tax for the period of twelve months, as recommended by citi zens, but is heartily in favor ofi funding the interest-bearing debt of the town and thinks that the pro posed reduction of the 6-mill levy to four mills might be made should the debt be funded at once. Other wise, council thinks it would be impossible, consistent with the best interests of the town, to make any reduction in the present 6-mill levy. There was a full meeting of coun cil, Mayor Earhardt presiding. The recom...

E. H. AULL, EDITOR. The report of Mr. F. M. Boyd published last week showing re ceipts and disbursements of the sys tem of water works and lights for the city should have the attention of the citizens. The income from private consumers last year for water and current was $5,185-38, and from the city $4,554.08, mak ing a total of $9,739.46. Under the increase in rate which was only in force for three months last year the income for this year should be about $6,ooo from private consum ers and $5.200 from the city. We take no account of meters, wiring - and tapping and piping for that should take care of itself, for the in dividual who has it done pays for it. The income then for this year should be from these two scources $11,2oo. The total cost last year for operating, including salaries and fuel was $6,07.32-$3,289.36 for salaries and $2.781.96 for fuel which is just about the amount re ceived from private individuals.

Mr. Kibler Too. Edgefield Advertiser. The committee. of which Hon. Thos. H.

Most of the Important Matters Have Al ready Been Acted Upon-House Re fuses to Repeal Lien Law. Columbia, February ii.-There is but one more week of the general assembly after the present week.

The absence of them is explained by the fact that in attempting to elevate them into positdon the contractors broke one of them into two pieces, and rather than put the contractors to the expense of replacing the brok en column, they were generously ex cused from putting them in at all, they paying the State $6oo, leaving them $3,4oo profit on that transac tion.

IN PRAISE OF THE HORSE. Its Supreme Virtue an Exquisite Delicacy Of Perception. H. C. Merwin in Country Life in America. Even if we admit that most horses are fools and cowards, inasmuch as they are afraid of things which more intelligent animals, such as the dog, perceive to be barmless, yet it is also true that many horses have a heroic capacity for conquer ing or putting aside their fears. Who has not seen a high bred steed, urged by his rider or driver, march straight as an arrow up or past some object so terrifying that it made the sw'eat run from him in streams? On the race track, horses painfully contend for victory out of their own native courage and am bition-not under punishment, for as a rule, the courageous horse will "stop," or "shut up," as the tech mical phrase is, whipped or spurred at the finish of a race. In Cali fornia some years ago, a running horse broke one of the bones in a foreleg near the close of a heat, per haps seventy yards from the wire. He faltered for...

E. H. AULL, F-DITOR~. LET US HAVE THEIR SIDE. Secretary of State Jesse T. Gantt1 and Former Attorney General G. Duncan Bellinger have publicly stated that they and the other mem bers of the commission for the com pletion of the State House have been done an injustice in the report of the legislative committee, in that they were not even given a hearing by the committee before the report was made. Mr. Frank P. 'Milburn. the architect who drew the plans and specifications, asks that judg ment be suspended until he is heard. It is but fair that judgment in the matter be suspeqded until both sides have been hearid. The gentle mn who composed the commission are well known by the people of South Carolina and all of them have served their State well in the past. Let us hear both sides in this as well as in all other matters. A GOOD DOCrRINE. In a communication published in the News and Courier of recent date Col.

IME U.E OF A LEGISLATOR. Brief Sketch of Daily Routine and Some Incidents Tat Sometimes Enliven it. News and Courier. Columbia.-Prohablyi not one pcr son in ten who casts his ballot for a member of the Legislature has anything more than a very general idea of the duties and daily routine of a representative in the house. It is commonly supposed by a great many people that the session at Co lumbia is a kind of holiday, spent by the representatives in comparative idleness and pleasure. That this may be trtie to some extent in the case of those members who are not on any of the important committees. it certainly is not with a large num ber of the lawmakers. The daily routine of a legislator is about as follows: At 10 o'clock the house meets and is in session until about 2 o'clock-sometimtes a litfle earlier or later. When that hour arrives, if there is to be a night session, as is alomst invariably the case at this time, when there are a very large number of bills on the Calendar, a mo...

The Dwarf Whom Harvard Honored. At the recent commencement ex ercises at Harvard University oc curred an incident full of instruc tion for those who saw it. It is often the habit of boys to judge of things by the way they look; but as one grows older he learns that appearance is not all. "Handsomne is as handsome does" is an adage that becomes clearer as one learns more of the world. At these exercises there were over one thousand students ready to receive diplomas, their friends who had come from all over the country; besides scores of wise men and great President Eliot confer red honorary degrees upon many distinguished guests who were pre sent. One of these was Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States, who arose in the fullness of I sturdy manhood and bowed his thanks. There were scientists, inventors, famous preachers, great judges, diplomats, and statesmen. Once when a name was called, a! soldier in full uniform bedecked with gold braid and shining buttons arose. He w...
