THINGS MONEY CANNOT BUY.
flraJns, Coo4 Conscience, Trut Friend
ship nd Health Are Not The
Servant et God.
Money is a .useful and nec?bsary
thing. It can do much for our
selves and others. But there are
manj things, and the things of
greatest value, that money cannot
One of these things ia intellec
tual power. A fool's monev can
buy diamonds, palaces, titles; but
it cannot buy an ounce of brains:
nd he must submit, if he be a.
wiBe fool, to use throughout his
lifetime the brains ot others. GiU
ed ignorance is still ignorance; and
Mind remains Master though
clothed in rags.
Money ennnot buy a clear con
science. Gold is no shield against
the shafts of remorse, and great
I wealth cannot silence the soul's
-condemnation. Conscience has never
I been bribed, and no success, how
a ever great, csn efface the stain of
Iain. The pain may be softened
down, but it brings no ease to the
heads that wear the devil's crown.
I True happiness flies when conscience
frowns, and no golden lure can
1 bring her back.
I Mouey cannot buy a happy home.
t-Sometiuies it ilmost seems as if
jwealth were inimical to home happi
ness. It caunot buy uuselfishness,
and it cannot buy the forbearnee
that is a neoe-sity to happiness.
Children are not the happier be
cause they have uo uugratitied
wishes and men and women do not
love each other because they are
less necessan to each other. The
.happiest homes are seldom found
where wealth is great.
Money cannot buy friendship.
,Some will perhaps take exception to
this and claim that morcy does
I Attract friends. The difference lies
f .solely in what we mean by "friend".
Money attracts those that money
1 can buy, but true men are not for
sale. Those whom mv monev at
traets are my money's friends alone,
And I am still us lonely as ever.
Money cannot buy health. It
may secure the amelioration of
sickness and the lessening of pain,
and in exDeplional cases it may
mean restoiation to health, but in
the vast majority of casts the re
verse is true, and the rich man in
his suffering looks with longing
eyes upon the poor man's rutrged
health, and feels that it would be a
good exchange if he could secure
that health even at the sacritice of
all he has.
Money caunot buy the saving of
the soul or the safe guarding of
those spiritual interests that are
dearer than life itself. There are
duors that swing open at the touch
of gold, bnt not these doors. There
may be crowns that are for sale, bu t
not the crown of life. Earth's gold
is less than tinsel here. The power
of money reaches no higher than
some paltry six feet from the
ground. Sometimes earthly justice
has been for sale; and the judge's
ermine has been soiled, but there is
no spot upon the great white throne.
All the wealth of all the ages
could not buy forgiveness of sins.
Corruption Funds and Benefit'.
The Republican National cam
paign fuud expended by Chairman
Cortelyou, for the Roosevelt election
is reputed to have been a little more
than $4,000,000. Where and how
did they get it? The official evi
dence :n the Life Insurance investi
ting showed that part of it came
from the trust funds of policy
holders that should have been sa
r.red to widows and orphans; that
IlainmaD, who the President now
charges is an undesirable citizen,
fave $50,000; that the discredited
tepew gave $25,000, and his friends
in Wall Stieet about $100,000
more. That Mr. Rogers, of the
Standard Oil Trust and Mr. Still,
man, President of the National City
the Kockfeller Bank and a num
ber of ,ohter trusts and corporation
magnates were also subscribers and
charged and not disproven, and
where the other millions came from
is not certainly known, but large
amounts were undoubedly paid by
the protected truBts which have
'always been liberal producers of
conuption funds to keep their Re
publican friends ia office. That is
the chief reason the tariff has not
been revised. The other contributors
have also had their quid pro quo,
for no one seriously believes that
the Standard Oil Trust will ever
pay the fine assessed against it. We
know that Harriman will get immu
nity. We' know that Depew was
elected Senator by the aid of the
Admin istration. We know that the
Standard Oil banks have large gov
ernment deposits without interest,
and when the names of the other
subscribers are divulged there will
probably be no difficulty in tracing
favors received. Does not this evi
dence of the trusts and corporations
having paid these large sums to the
Roosevelt campaign fund plainly
show that the charge made by
Judge Parker just before the elec
tion of 1904 was true, although
President Roosevelt denied it. Yet
no restitution even of the widows
and orphans funds, has ever been
made by the Repnblican National
Committee, and President Roosevelt
has never made the amend honora
ble to Judge Parker, oi even a poor
excuse which would be better than
none. It is quite probable that the
same dastardly tactics will be resort
ed to in coming elections, and this
evidence of Republican corruption
and dishonor ia produced to prevent
voters from being again deceived in
the same or some similar manner.
When you see or hear of large
amounts of money being expended
at some future election, just ask
yourself the question, "Wheie and
how did they get it?"
Protests of tbe Past Against Railroads.
Old Jonas's objections to a rail
way were not amenable to reason or
argument; it was sufficient that they
were satisfactory to him. He had
them all catalogued and numbered.
There were six of them, and they
ran about as follows:
1. A railroad would add ro the
racket and riot of the neighborhood,
whfn, as things were, it was a dif
ficult matter for de-tic people to
sleep in peace. '2. ( This obj-ctio'n
was impressive on account ot its
originality; no one had ever thought
of it.) Tiiii pissing of railway
trains would produce concussion,
and this concussion, repeated at
regular intervals, would cause the
blossoms of the fruit lives to drop
untimely off, and would no doubt,
have a Jisim rous effect ou garden
vegetables. 3. The railioad would
not stop in SuaJy Dale, but would
go ou to Atlanta, thus making the
little town a way-station, and drain
the whole country of its labor at a
time when everybody was trying to
adjust himself to the new conditions.
4. Instead of patronizing home
industries and enterpiises, people
would scramble for seats on the cars
and g gadding about, spending
anywhere but at home the little
money thpy had. .5. Every busi
ness and all forms of industry in
the whole section adjacent to the
line would beat the mercy of the
road and its managers. 6. What
did the people want with railroads,
when a majority of the loudest talk
ers had earned no more than three
dollars apiece since the war. Joel
Chandler Harris in Uuele Kemus's
Magazine for October.
It's lonely since you left me, dear;
The hours go silent shod;
I wait in vain to hear
A stir where once yon trod.
D.ivb days days
And never your footsteps come;
Oh, t:at J knew a call for you
To turn your wanderings home!
It's weary watching for you, love;
The twilight is a ghost;
The shadows breathe and move,
Sighing of something lost;
Dark dark dark
And never your face for light,
Divided. . . .Nay, a world away;
Heart of my heart, good night!
Nancy Iiyrd Turnur in July I.ipptncotts.
Who Is the Aifanias.
Here'a another question of veraci
ty, amendacity or something of
that sort. The Mansfield, Ohio,
t)aily Shield says: "Official pre
varicator, Loeb, eavs the President
is taking no part in" the Creveland
campaign, although Burton, whose
veracity is not questioned, said, ia
effect, that Roosevelt had urged
him to run. "Either somebody has
lied or nobody has told the truth,
in either case, the Ohio Republicans
will be deceived; but nobody else

THE ROCK HILL BUGGY CO.,
Rock Hill, S. C.
Answering yours of the 18th, we will say that the
three buggies came in O. K., and opened up in good
shape. We must acknowledge that we were some
what prejudiced against the "Rock Hill" buggy, but
since we bought these, sample buggies and comoared
them with other sample buggies we have decided that
the "Rock Hill" is the best we have seen for the price,
and we expect to advertise them in our county paper
and push the sale of them in this community.
Yours very truly,
(Signed) Fort Lawn Live Stock & Mer. Co.
"Prejudice is a thief and will rob you of many good
things." If you have a preconceived idea in your head
that "Rock Hill" buggies cannot be as good as or better
than some other make, you are the loser. All we ask of
you is to just give us a trial we will do the rest.
