TILLMAN II HI
V 1 , 'l.
At the KrhnolhouKC there hnd been
a leiture in sweeping denunciation of J
all wealth. Shaking his blael! niano
and seeming to pop his forellnger, the
lecturer, in n sort if frenzy, had de
clared the dollar to lo tho enemy of
the human rare. There was no hotel
in the neighborhood, so the leeturer
went home with old Limuol JueU'in.
Several of tin? neighbors dropped in.
"I always like to hear a man talk
when he appears to believe vlnt ho
lias to say," remarked old Lhn. "The
fact that the fiddler is In earnest adds
n good deal to tin; quality of the fid
dim". Hat n man may be situ ere and
tit the nanio time fiddle out a tune that
I here nin'l much mimic in. So, profes
sor, you say that the dollar is the
curse of the human race?''
"Well, yes, I may so concentrate the
trouble of the world into the dollar.''
"Ah, hah. Hut don't you think that
the dollar represents the concentra
tion of man's Incentive to work? The
greatest cui::o that could fall upon
man would be idleness. In all ages,
so far as I have been able to gather,
"Out Do You Think It Is
work has been the pnlvatlon of man.
I'njoyments and all sorts of sports
and pleasures wear out, but labor en
dures." "You forget," said the professor,
"that labor was first put upon man as
ii penalty, as a curse for disobedi
ence." "No, I don't forget that. I don't for
get that It mny appear that way. Put
Adam wasn't thoroughly satisfied with
idleness. If he had been he would
have let good enough alone. He
wouldn't have eaten the forbidden
fruit when live oli'cred it to him. lie
didn't have anything to occupy his
mind and he yielded. IUit leavin' the
tilings that we can never know much
about and comin' down to man of to
day, we see the virtue of work and the
evil of Idleness. Money(is tho essence
of industry. Without it all life would
"Hut the love of It has been aptly
termed the root of all evil," said tho
"Yes," admitted Lim, "that's so. Hut
the love of money ain't money itself

ain't the use of It. We commend a
man for savin' his dollars, but if every
man were to save to the very closest
life would hardly be worth livin'.
That's where an abundance of money

money might be nn evil. When we have
a great deal we are Inclined to spend,
and this makes others prosperous."
"Very true," admitted the professor,
"but don't you believe that in Ameri
ca the present Htrurs'.e for money is
about to ruin the country?"
"When men race at full speed for
money they drop out some that Is al
ready In their pockets, and those who
pick it up profit by it And, when the
etid of the mad race Is about reached,
the racer halts, draws a long breath
and then decides to build a college or
found a library. He wants to leave a
footprint. Ho wants to be remem
bered by the racers who are to come

Illches have oppressed, have been
heartless, but that is not the spirit of
money. Money is every man's serv

master he suffers for It. Money dis
covered America, and you must admit
that this country has been a blessin'
to the human race. Columbus was
looking lor a road over which he could
transport wealth. Men seeking for
fortunes have, made about all the dis
coveries on the face of the earth. The
rudder of the ship is the universal
longue of the gospel. Science may
Hall and discover and come back and
report; but commerce halts and builds
up the country."

that used to live not far from here.
She was so ugly that hosses would
get scared at her. And her homeli
ness wn'n't goodness, either. She had
a disposition liko a porcupine. No
matter from what direction you intent
approach her, there was a quill. Folks
didn't like to pass her house, for she'd
tome out on the veranda and shout
vitriol at them. The hip bones of pov
erty stuck up through her farm. She
just about made a livln". Hut one day
her old mule died, report said, and
loft her n hundred thousand dollars.
Then the folks began to travel by her
house. Some of them stopped to pay
their respects. Among them was
'Squire Goodall. He pretended that
he hadn't heard of her good fortune.
He asked her how her uncle was get
tin' along, and remarked that if she
needed a side of bacon or two he
would willingly fetch It over to her.
She beamed on him and he dodged,
but stood It. He told her he'd like to
make her a present of his horse, and
She Accepted Him.
she thanked him and took it, and ha
walked home. Ho drenmed about her
that nlfeht and it was a nightmare, but
ho decided that he was in love with
her. Two days later he went back and
made her a present of n cow. She
smacked her mouth and took the cow,'
and 'lowed he was the sweetest man.
Ho thought so, too, but didn't say so.
Well, shortly atterward he proposed
and she accepted. They were married
and the folks came In to drink cider
and eat ginger cake. Just after the
ceremony up conies a feller an' says
to her: Miz Goodall, I was in tho Syc
amore country the other day and met
your old uncle, and he told me to tell
you that he was mighty In need of
help and that he wished you would
send him a dollar or so if you could

swered: 'Why, the one Hint was re

man; I think, lovey, we'd better send

"Goodall sneezed out some ginger
cake and was never known to smilo
after that. So, you see, professor,
even the love of money did good In
that Instance. It got a husbnud for a

tried to cure this by nn extended tour
of several months in Europe. The
health resorts of tho continent helped
him greatly and ho returned to the
United States muc'i stronger than he
was when he left. While the paralysis
lias not returnej, a general debility
from nervousness has made his life
unhappy in tho last few months.
The going of Tillman will take from
the senate one of its most picluresquo
characters. "Pitchfork lien." as he Is
called, Is feared of all other senators
for the sharpness of his tongue and
the keeness of his wit. No man In tho
United States senate Is an abler rough
Senator B. R. Tillm.-n.
and ready debater than Tillman.
Y.'hile his remarks have never carried
niiicli weight they have appealed to
the galleries and looked well in print.
His logic might have been poor and
his speeches Inferior to those of bis
opponents, but his mannerisms have
won the victory for him In the pop
Senator Tillman's brother, the late
George R. Tillman, was a congress
man from tho Second South Caroliin
district. In the house he was knov n
as one of the most quiet and unemo

During his service he seldom talked
and when he did he spoke simply and
to the point. Tho name of Tillman
was practically unknown itll Sena

South Carolina in 1802. -To celebrated

school established through his effort

home,' Fort Hill, S. G. The second
school is the Winthrop Normal avel
Industrial College for Women at Itoek
The successful canvass for the
gubernatorial chair encouraged Mr.
Tillman to try for the senatorial elec

canvassed South Carolina county by
county, and Tllimnn won In the legis
lature with 131 votes against (ba;
