Now, let us gather up some of the

tack attack just before day on the 16th of
May, the Edisto Rifles stretched right
across the turnpike, and just before
the order to move forward was given,
Gen. Hagood came up on the turnpike
to where our company was and asked
what troops we were, and being told,
"Edisto Rifles," he replied, "That is
good I could not ask for better."
Then turning to Captain Izlar he told
him that the enemy had a battery of
five pieces of artillery in the turnpike
at the line which they occupied and
that we were about to assault. The
general paused a moment and then
said, "Captain, I want you and the
Edisto Rifles to capture that battery."
The captain replied, "General, your
orders shall be obeyed." The captain
ordered the company to fix bayonets
and not fire until .we could make our
shots tell, and to shoot first to kill the
artillery horses, so that the enemy
could not get the. pieces away so
handily. Then the whole line was on
the move to the assault and the fight
was soon hot, vigorous and deadly.

number of prisoners were captured.

Your paper goes into hundreds of
homes and' is a moulder of sentiment.
Is the position you take likely to heal
the bruises brought about by the hot
campaign or is it likely to keep them
irritated and really what is your de
sire in the matter. ?
In Monday's issue I find the follow following:
ing: following: "Every day Mr. Hughes puts off
congratulating Mr. Wilson causes him
to lose some of the respect the Amer
ican people had for him as a jurist and
a statesman." Do y6u not think that
a wee bit of this might apply to your yourself,
self, yourself, also Mr. Knott.
The supreme court's ,4 decision has
been reversed by the highest tribunal
of this state, and Mr. Catts elected
governor by an overwhelming plural plurality,

contestants, in all probability these
readers of equal intelligence and

Month rook, Nov. 15.
We are glad to once more hear from
our old friend, Mr. Blitch. We
thought he had gone to some seaport
town, to try and see the pope's flag
flying over an American battleship,
and had fallen overboard and become
fatally dampened down.
We have often heard that a drunk drunken
en drunken man considers himself the only
sober person in the world. We do not
know how that is, as we could never
hold enough booze to make us drunk,
but we have been regretfully aware
for some time that our friend Blitch
was in a trance a Cataleptic trance
so we do not wonder that he thinks
the Star is dreaming,; moping and
pouting, and that he :.. is the wide wideawake
awake wideawake and cheerful child of hope.
Mr. Blitch attaches too much im importance
portance importance to' his candidate. Judging
by what we have heard since the
campaign began, Catts is worse wor worried
ried worried about the Star than the Star is
about Catts. Nobody has seen the
Star mope or pout. It's attending to
business as usual, and Catts is only
an incident in its everyday business.
Mr. Blitch and his other deluded fol followers
lowers followers will be worse" disappointed be before
fore before they get through with him than
the Star will. v
The readers of this papers are not
complaining of its policy toward
Catts, and so far as we know the
great majority of them voted for
Knott. We conceded to those who
voted for Catts that they were .honest
in their opinion and within their
r ignis, ana iney nave maae ine. same
concession to the Star.
Also, we beg to inform Mr. Blitch
-that we had accepted the result of the
election 'and quit discussing Catts. It
had hot dug the subject up in his
foregoing letter, it would probably
not have been referred to again.
The Star is a democratic paper, and
it sees no reason why it should con
gratulate any man on the defeat of
the democratic party. There is no
more reason why it should congratu congratulate
late congratulate Catts in 1916 than it should have
congratulated McKinley in 1896 and
1900, Roosevelt in 1904 or Taf t in
1908. There is indeed much less, for
McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft were
statesmen of high type and were not
elected thru appeals to prejudice, and
In his recent letter to the people of
Florida, Mr. Knott said:
"I earnestly trust that my friends
and supporters, in common with all
good citizens, will cordially support
the next governor and the adminis administration,
tration, administration, regardless of past differences,
in all that may tend to the. prosperity
and upbuilding of our great state, and
the blessings of its citizens under
their laws and liberties."
This is all that was necessary for
Mr. Knott to say.;. It;, was moderate,!
sensible and kind--the sort of an ex
pression that might be expected from
the Christian gentleman y and good
democrat who uttered it. Mr. Catts
during his campaign was not so ef
fusive of courtesy toward his oppon
ents that he deserved any congratula congratulations
tions congratulations from them, and as for, anybody
congratulating the state on his elec
tion, we think only the deluded will
We regret to see Mr. Blitch say,
"The supreme court's decision has
been reversed." This shows that Mr.
Blitch is among' the temporarily in insane,

Mr. Knott asked the supreme court
to order the state canvassing board to

the law, it could do nothing else. It

and it will be the law after Catts and

The supreme court did not direct
that any votes were to be counted or

The supreme court did not count nor

We are- not surprised that Catts and

We have not threatened to read any
Ca tts people out of the democratic
party, and we would not care a cuss
if they threatened to read us out.
The decision of this question rests
with the organized democracy, and
Mr, Blitch. may be sure that whatever
it is the Star will stand by it. The
Star is a democratic paper. It doesn't
stay in the party as long as the party
acts to suit it, bolt when some meas
tire or candidate doesn't, and try. to
return when it gets ready.
And now, Mr. Blitch, this is al
about Catts. If he makes a good gov
ernor, the Star will be glad, and
j praise him for all the good he does
If he is a bad governor, the Star wil
criticise him. We prophesy you wil
be .worse disappointed in him than
the Star will. 1
Ins the meantime, you might come
over to the Marion County Fair, and
bring all your neighbors; and some
time take the Star man over in your
country so he can see what you, with
the assistance of Governor Catts, ex

the legislature meets again.
that our participation in the war,
from however strong compulsion,
tfould be a world calamity.
That much is clearly deducible from
the presidential campaign, and we
look upon this expression of public
opinion as one of the finest incidents
in American history. Man is natural naturally
ly naturally a fighting animal. Getting him to
fight has always been the easiest trick
in the statesman's box. Moreover,
war is contagious, and the contagion
has been in the air for many months.
That the American people in 1916 re refused

taunted into belligerency will stand as
one of the high justifications of dem democracy.

One singular phase of the campaign
consisted in persistently insulting a"
public that saw its own interests and
the highest human interests. That
phase was conducted by a rather ex extensive
tensive extensive and clamorous set; but the
public's answer was merely a good good-natured
natured good-natured shrug.

Only a few'- weeks ago, Mr. Ditto,
being informed of his sister's severe
illness, visited her at her home, and
after a few days was able to leave in
the knowledge that she was much bet

was. fully assured.
; The remains will be laid to rest at
Opelika, which was formerly the home
of her husband.
The news" of Mrs. Driver's death
brings great regret to all who re remember

Barrel of Cement Per Capita.
Every man, woman and child In the
United States was entitled to one bar
rel of cement as his percapita' share
in 1915. The demand during 1916 will
doubtless be larger. There are ap
proximately 100,000,000 people in the
United States, and the 1915 production
of commercial cement was about 100.
000,000 barrels, says the Improvement
Some curious disproportions have
been noted In the demand for cement
in the various states. Very little was
used In Mississippi and South Caro
lina. Iowa's demand per capita was
larger than any other state in the
union, being 1.64 barrels. Montana
obtained nearly as much.
One of the companies engaged in
the industry produces 18,000,000 bar

v Fashions by Films
! Pa the proposes to set the styles for
the coming year with its one-reel
fashion film, which is "issued regular
ly. There really is no reason why the
motion picture screen should not carry
the fashions to the public as well as
the magazines, for surely there is no
better way of learning exactly what a
dress looks like than seeing it on a
real live, person. Pictures in books
never carry the same satisfying idea
of a dress to the mind that a film
can. The concern states that this is
an experiment, and that if it is suc
cessful fashion motion pictures will
be made on a much v more elaborate
scale and in much larger quantities.
A most unique picture will be shown
at the Temple tonight and every other
Friday from now on. It is released by
the International Film Co. and called
"The Adventure of Dorothy Dare,"
each a complete story showing the
very latest fashions.

turnpike to escape the rain of Minie
balls 1 Was he wise? You bet! But that
is not all; the captain and his men
were all Germans, and only the cap
tain and a few of his men could speak
a word of English. I have frequently
wondered what our luck would have
been if we had run up against one of
Gen. Grant's veteran batteries. The
Edistos were croud of their morn
ing's work, but we paid pretty severe
ly for it. Our company lost in killed
and wounded fifteen men. The killed
were Lieut. George Elliott, Corporal
J. R. Kennerly, Privates M. L. Aus
tin, G. W. B. Fairey; the wounded,
Sergeants Ben P. Izlar and J. H.
Hook and Corporal Theodore Kohn ;
Privates John Ashe (leg amputated
at the knee) Andrew J. Smoak, Mur-.
ray Robinson, Frank Inabinett (mor (mortally),
tally), (mortally), James H. Avant, Ben H. San Sanders,
ders, Sanders, E." H. Irick and O. J. Syphvet.
The dead were buried by the turnpike
near where they fell and after the
war their bodies were taken tip and
carried to South Carolina. Corporal
Kohn's right hand was badly shatter shattered
ed shattered and he was disabled for service to
the end of the war. He was a Bavar
ian by birth, and a Jew. He came to
Orangeburg when about ten years old.
He was a fine man and an excellent
soldier. After the war closed he en engaged
gaged engaged in ;the mercantile business in
Orangeburg and was very successful.
Died a few years ago, highly esteem esteemed
ed esteemed by all who knew him, as are his
children' today. Ben Sanders, just
before he was wounded, saw a. piece
of sole leather about a foot square,
lying on the ground where some of
the retreating enemy had dropped it.
Ben picked it up and some one of our
boys said, "Take care of that Ben,
it will come in good." He replied,
I'm going to," and just then '"thug
and a Minie ball had badly wounded
him, and he sung out, "Some one take
me away from here and he tnrew
down the sole leather. Ben was a
small man but full of life, energy and
courage; made a good soldier and
after the war made a good citizen.
He was red-headed and the boy nick
named him "Chucker."
In the reports -made of this battle
by. the commanding officer two mem
bers of the Edisto Rifles were men
tioned for conspicuous gallantry:
ergtant Ben P. Izlar and Private
Ira T. Shoemaker; (See Records of the
War of the Rebellion.) i
To illustrate how; wild and aimless
firing is often done in battle, I will
relate what took place in this fight
while the battle -was raging and the
firing fiercest. There was a tall pine
tree standing just on the inside of
the line of fortifications, and my at
tention being attracted in that diree
tion I noticed that the balls coming
from the enemy's rifles were cutting
the pine needles and cones from the
very top of the tree, and knocking the
bark off all the way down as low as
the top of the breastworks, and it is
reasonable to suppose that thousands
of them went even higher than the
top of the tree.- At the time of this
incident the two? lines of battle were
not more than a hundred yards apart.
I had often wondered why many more
men were not killed and wounded than
are when there was such continued
and terrific firing going on, but the
mystery was cleared on that day;
that is to a certain extent, for I do
not believe that veteran troops fire
so excitedly and wildly as Butler's
troops did that day, and yet, when
one compares the number of shots
fired in any battle with the number of
casualties inflicted, we find by
simple rule of arithmetic that there
are about 399 misses to one hit. For
instance say 5,000 men are engaged
in battle, each having 40 rounds of
ammunition, it would make a total of
200,000 cartridges. If the fight lasts
several hours all of these, and per
haps : more, would be expended. If
500 are killed, which is a fair and lib lib-eral
eral lib-eral estimate, then we have only one
fatal shot out of 400 the result J
have above stated, of 399 misses to
one fatal hit. The low rate of mor
tality is caused by excitement and
reckless firingwhich shows how very
important it is to have ,a cool and
steady commander, one who by his
own demeanor and example inspires
confidence in his men. As a rule
when conditions are equal, victory a!
ways goes to the army that is wel
organized, well commanded and free
from all semblance of demoralization.
The last few paragraphs are based
upon war as it was fought fifty odd
years ago, and through the ages back
behind that time, and not to the so-
called war now going on in Europe
That is not war--they are not fight
ing with swords, rifles, pistols and
field guns; they are using instead
money, food and poisonous gas. Never
a gallant cavalry charge where
swords cross swords with the adver
sary; never banners carried forward in
impetuous infantry charge in the
the open field; no sound of fife, or rat
tle of drum, or bugle blasts ring ou
through the sulphurous air while the
rattle of musketry and the shouts of
