toward the banquet hall below, where
the feast was spread.
The lodge, for that occasion, had
rented from- Mr. Condon the second
story of his building, for twenty-five
years the composing room of the
daily Star. It had been so brightened
with fresh paint and other improve
ments that it was hardly recognizable
to the Star men present. This room
was well filled with long tables, spread
with snowy linen and sparkling with
crystal and silver. All during the
evening, a busy band of Odd Fellows,
ably assisted by a number of ladies,
had denied themselves the pleasures
of the installation in the hall in order
to make ready for the guests, and very
completely had their done their work.
There .were so many present that
the guests had to be served in two
sections. There were. 200 at the first

that tariff duties must be increased.
For years upon years democratic con congressmen

Then, after getting protection en engrafted

For our part we have been long dis

Unless we intend to adopt free

such as the states impose, we must

Europe is too severe for them.
Our Congress seems to contain a

In speaking yesterday of the retir retiring
ing retiring board of county commissioners,
we tried to say that it had .tried to get
the county out of a rut, but the lino linotype

than we what we were writing about
(sometimes it does), and substituted
tun for rut.
In a letter to Mr. T. D. Lancaster
Jr., received Tuesday, Mr. Wm. A.
Sessoms, county agent, writes that on
account of the death of Mrs. Ses Sessoms'

neral funeral in Illinois, he will be unable to
attend to his duties in this county for
the present. Under these circum circumstances
stances circumstances we know that those who are
anxious for his services and advice
will bear patiently any delays.
The Latin races prove that they un understand

do, when they refuse to permit their
daughters to go with young men with without

restriction is not put on the present
custom of letting girls go out all
hours day and night, that marriage
will be rare. While we confess that
we must have public schools, we still
contend that we must reconcile our ourselves
selves ourselves to lost modesty. Attending the
same public school boys and girls lose
the finer sense of respect and appre appreciation

no longer trained; they grow up like
wild weeds unconscious of duties, ig ignorant

with filial affection. Parents send
their small children to the kindergar kindergarten
ten kindergarten schools to be trained by teachers
of whom they often know nothing;
instead of giving the training that
only a mother can give. No outside
woman can feel the same interest in
the child as the mother does. Under

That Representative Britten of Il Illinois,
linois, Illinois, who. wants our government to
interfere with France, for keeping
colonial troops in the occupied zone of
Germany, is evidently not only a med med-dler
dler med-dler but has a strong prejudice
against the negro. In a speech in the
House Mr. Britten said:
"I can not understand that the civ civilized
ilized civilized nations of the world will coun countenance
tenance countenance the retention of some unciv uncivilized
ilized uncivilized African troops in the Rhineland
of Germany, when repeated protests,
not only from the women of the world
but of high ranking British and
French authorities are outspoken
against this procedure because of the
brutalities that are daily being com committed
mitted committed against old women, as well as
defenseless young women and girls."
Mr. Britten was not heard from a
few years ago when German white

that caused our government to pro protest.

should love the negro, yet the worst
treatment that was ever given negroes
in any town in America was handed
out to them in the metropolis of Mr.
Britten's state. However, if a negro

chartered near Coblenz, and the Brit British

for attractive prizes given by the f ol-
