POSTOX AXI) THE MAKERS.
It Avi il be remembered that a
Miss Jewett of the city of Boston
came down to South Carolina
jind pr: ssed her persuasions till
.she got the family of the mur
dered postmaster at Lake City to
ro Avith her to Boston, expect
ing to I'aise much sensation and
piobably more money and
ha ire; I of the South by exhibit
ing Mrs. Baker and her children.
The lirst exhibition was a howl
ing success. Airs. Baker got in
to a Southern darkey way and
shou'ed in camp-meeting; style.
Mis Jowett. however, . has
found i he enterprise devoid of
proii . and of glory and has
droinHv' the Baker family to
shift for themselves in the city
where sentinentalism uuaceom
p.iiied villi the' ,;'emiiuo philan
thropy felt bv tho Southern
poop1 h:.s quickly vanished and
they are objects of cold charity.
Persons looking after the Bak
ers have even called on New
York to relieve them of the bur
den of this one family while all
the i '.mo the Bostonians are
catching on to everv instance of
real - or apparent cruelty by
Southern whites towrard the
But so it goes, there seems no
way for f-ections to understand
each other and there are always
sharpers like Miss Jewette wants
to be to take advantage of sec
tional misunderstandings and
projudics to get dimes and glory
vjt of it.
The Barlow Minstrels Tonight.
The Barlow Minstrels arrived
here early this morning in their
private car and will play to a
large house tonight. Thoy gavo
a parade today at noon. Their
band numbers fourteen and is
composed of musicians of merit.
Fun and lino music, mixed with
their specialties, will keep the
audience pleased tonight. The
Charlotte Observer speaks' well
of thoir performance thero last
Bipr Job for Uncle Sam.
It is said there are 70,000,000
acres of arid lands between tho
Missouri river and the Rocky
Mountains that will become
tilable and productive when
irrigated. It is another big job
for the government to tackle.
Uij? Cotton Receipts,
The Star says Wilmington's
cotton receipts last Monday wore
5,922 bales, a record breaker.
On the same day last vear the
number was 3,490 bales.

Tho Superintendent of Public
Schools of Indianapolis says that
prosperity does not have the ef
fect of increasing the number of
children in the educational insti
tutions. "Tho fact is," lie says,
"that prosperity decreases the
number of pupils in the high
schools particularly because
there is work to be had, and bovs
from twelve years up turn their
backs on school and take the
jobs offered." Daily Rellector.
Things That Other People Do.
The man who does his best to
make the world a better
Whoso heart is pure, who dares
to look his neighbor in the
Is not the ono who lakes delight
in holding up to view
And scoiling at tho foolish things
that other people do.
Tho mau who gains the noble
heiirhf where fame and
Wins no delight from petty spite,
he gives no heed to hate,
For he has little chance to reach
this distant summit who
(Jives ui) his time to smudging
t iiings 11 Kit. other pooplo do.
1 like the honest man ; who tries
to keep away from sin;
I like the man who seeks to rise,
but does no wrong to win-
The world is brighter for the day
spent in his presence who
Can keep from tinding fault with
things that, other people do.

Rev. Sam Jones is in a quan
dary. He is wanted in Chatta
nooga, whero the grand jury
would like to have him give it
somo information, and lie is
wanted at Carters ville, his home
town, by a neighbor, who has
a grievance and wants to punch
him some. Sam isn't quite de
cided whether he hadn't better

Mrs. Clara E Wright is run
ning a prohtable little print shop
in the Klondike, where she issues
a paper (monthly) and getsadol
lar a copy for it. It is called by
the catchy name of the Rampart
City Whirlpool, and is probably
the only papsr in this country
which is set up without a com
positor or printed without a
press. Every copy is typewrit
ten, so that she and her type
writing machine compose the
whole layout. Morning Star.
The One Thing Denied Dewey.
The only thing that Dewey
ioally seems to hanker for is
quiet a r;d a chance to get back
to Moiiipidier without attracting
attention.' And the great Ameri
can people are willing to give
him anything but ihat for which
he ask'.'. Des Mo"""x L'M.der.
Drying preparations simply
develop dry catarrh; they dry up
the secretions which adhere to
the membrane and decompose,
causing a far more serious trou
ble than the ordinary form of
! catarrh. Avoid all drying1 in
halants and use that which
cloanses, soothes and heals. Ely's
Cream Balm is such a remedy
and will cure catarrh or cold in
tho head easily and pleasantly.

in our late war with Spain, diar
rhoea was ope of the most
troublesome diseases tho army
had to contend with. in many
instances it became chronic and
the old soldiers still suffer from
it. Mr. David Taylor, of Wind

of these. He usee Chamberlain's

iinytbing that would give him
such quick relief. Ifc is lor sale

Secretary Root is besieged
wTith requests from officers' wives
to go to Manila. Gen. Otis re
cently cabled the wTar department
that there were no accommoda

together with the fact that all
