THE DEATH RATE. V A Thousand Persons Die Every t Eleven Minutes. c a New York Tribune. In a catastrophe which suddenly blots out a thousand lives the civil- a ized world finds cause for horror and sympathy alike. On the community in which such a disaster occurs its first effect is dazing, and it is not strange that following the destruc- t tion of the General Slocum expres- a sions of doubt at to the wisdom of God and his direction of human af fairs should be heard alike from the irreligious and the unthinking. It is only in the calmer time of after thought that. thaoks to the figures of the statistician., such an accident. ter rible in its detail and shocking in its nature, sinks into insignificance in the death list of the day, not merely s in the world or the nation, but even t1 in the state and city. - c The estimated annual death rate %or the world of 45,000.000, a daily C total of 123,000, sends into obscurity c the thousands and or fewer who were f< slain on the General Sl...

TROUBLES OF AN HEIRESS. Richest Woman in the World Guard ed by Detectives. London Daily Mail. It is one of the grm ironies of fate that a young girl. barely of age. should be in a sense responsible for the bloodshed in the struggle be tween Russia and Japan. owing to the fact that she supplied both powers with practically all of their guns. The young woman in ques tion is .\liss Krupp. who. on the death of her father, became chic proprietor of the world-famed Krupp works at Essen and likewise became the wealthiest woman in the world. The heiress seems to have inherit ed some of the family capacity for industrial organization. for she takes fne greatest pride and delight in sup ervising the work of the different de paitments, and declares that at some future time she will have gained sufficient experience to take an active part in the direction of matters. Meanwhile. her interference in bus iness matters is limited to passive supervision. but she takes a more ac tive part in controll...

ST. LOUIS CONVENTION. Gathering of Democrats Tomorrow Will Be the Most Memorable In Years. St. Louis. July 4.-lore than onc orator at the recent Republican na tional convention at Chicago felt called upon to apologize for the ap parent lack of interest there. More than one explanation was made that it Iequired a contest to create en thusiasm. There will be no need for any such apology or explanation when the rep resentatives of the Democratic par ty in the United States assemble in St. Louis Wednesday for the purpose of naming their national candidates and preparing the platform upon which they will appeal to the country.

GOOD LOOKS DONT COUNT. Unique Decision By Judge Parker, of New York. Atlanta Constitution. Members of the bar are discussing a recent dicision by Judge Alton B. Parker, chief justice of the court of appdals. of New York. Judge Par ker has decided that there shall be no compensation in damages for good looks in a woman. The case is a very unique one and has caused more attention because of the fact that Chief Justice Parker is so prominently mentioned as a dem ocratic candidate for president of the United States. Anything that Judge Parker has to say now is sure to attract attention. as is the case with all men who are mentioned in high public life. The Lawgiver for July contains a notice of the case referred to. The case was that of a man whose wife had been killed and he was suing for damages. When the case was heard before a jury, the woman's photo graph was exhibited to the jurors. She was a remarkably pretty woman, and when the jurors had gazed upon her lovely face they went out...

E. H. AULL, EDITOR. - Entered at the Postoffice at New berry, S. C., as second class matter. FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1904. The county campaign so far has been pleasant and devoid of special features. The candidates are a jolly set and seem to be enjoying the heat and the barbecue hash and all of them 'expect to be elected. It is good to be hopeful and not to cross the bridge of sighs until it is reached. Certainly no man would go through all the pleasures of a summer campaign with its sunshine and barbecue meats unless he expected the approval of his fellow citizens. It is stated in the dispatches from St. Louis that three of the delegates from South Carolina voted against voting for Parker on the first ballot. While they were not instructed the sentiment of the convention which sent them as delegates was very strongly for Parker. The crops in those sections of the county where we have been during the past few days are needing rain. In some places there have been good rains and the cotton i...

A FATAL PHOTOGRAPH. War Photographer Gave His Life For a Snapshot. Everybody's Magazine. In some respects one of the most remarkable war photographs ever made was secured by a man named Meyer, a correspondent for a Ger man illustrated newspaper. during the war in South Africa. 'Meyer was with the Boers. During one of Buller's attacks along the Tugela. he took a position on the firing line. The tire from the British batteries across the river was very heavy during the pre liminary period of the assault. and shells literally rained on the low-lying kopjes occupied by Botha's army Meyer thought. he saw a good oppor tunity to secure a tine picture. and he jumped out of his "schanze" to snap it. Just then a big liddite shell explod ed within a few feet of him. killing him instantly. I afterward secured his camera, which was comparatively uninjured. When the film it contain ed was developed I discovered that Meyer had made a beautiful photo graph of the huge shell which snuffed out his li...
