Despite the efforts of the. de-bunking school of historians, most of us persist in looking on thut era as a sort of golden • age, when men ind'issues were sketched in clear colors, either definitely white or unmistakably 5 black.'

''- * ••' • Even more: appealing; though, is that queer, inexplicable sense of quaintness, of story-book pageantry, that an affair like this at Kings Mountain brings 'to us. Going back to that far-off battle is like looking at something through the wrong end of a. p'a'ir of field glasses. Everything s'eerris ; 'reduced. The colors are clear, but the figures arc tiny. Kings Mountain was one of the decisive combats of .the. revolution. . It altered Lord Cormvallis' southern campaign so materially 'that his final capture at Yorktown was' its. Ipgical corollary. In its' way, it was as'important ••• to the colonial cause as Saratoga. . But . what a small scale it was pitched on!' Colonel Ferguson, .the ,British commander, had only a little better than 1000 soldiers in his command. The mountaineer levies that swarmed down on Kim were about"equal" in number. At;the end of the''.battle tlie British suffered *3S4 * casualties, exclusive of prisoners; the Americans had lost 90 men. : It is hard to realize that such a diminutive conflict could have helped settle the destinies of .the two greatest '-• nations on earth today. .In the Civil War a fight of that she would'have been little more than a skirmish; in thu World War it would have passed utterly unnoticed. Yet few American armies have fought to better effect'than that army at Kings Mountain.' ' "" Consider, coo, the old-fashioned pic- turesqueness of the thing. The British, in their'red'coats with white facings, were on the summit of.the mountain; the colonials, in buckskin shirts and coonskin caps, came up in u long, steady line.

A month before the convention. It was commonly believed among those most conversant with state politics in New York that the Republicans would adopt a straddling >lank on prohibition in an al- ernpt to keep the upstate drys appy as well as the New York city •ets. But politicians are politicians raid t is not, much fmi being a poli- .clnn unless you can win an elec- ion once in n while and get your ,»rty into office. The New York Republicans ore Ircd of losing stale elections. For ears now they have had a ratlc governor and two United ita'.es senators. Their weakness In he state enabled New York Demo- rats lo produce a strong presidential candidate in 1928 and tire haiiccs ere that another New York Democratic governor will be the tronsrcst- contender for the Demo- :ratic nomination in 1932. G.' O. P. »t Disadvantage About all tlie attention the Re- mtltcan parly in New York has at- racted through the country has been in comiccllon wilh prohiW- :cn scandals In New York city ancl the uninspiring efforts of Republican stale legislators to thwart lovernors Al Smith and Franklin D. Rocsevelt. It has never been questioned by' anyone that, Insofar as any state can be tagged^as wet or dry. New Ycrk Ins been wet. With tho D»:n- ocrata of the state mUttnntly wet, .lie Republicans -have obviously teen al a dls.idviuilage when dry or straddling. There nrc more di-ys. apparently, in the. New York Republican party Limn In Ihe New York Democratic parly. Bui that didn't win the G. O. P. any statewide eleciimis. In 192|j the drys entered an independent senatorial candidate who took away enough voles to defeat Senator James W. Wadsworl. 1 !, who conic out wet, but the New- York Republicans doublless figure that that sort ot thing can't gs on forever. Independents Never Serious Independent dry candidates sometimes have a distinct nuisance value—and so have independent wet candidates—but they are never serious contenders in a campaign. The infinitesimal voting strength ol the old Prohibition party indicates how difficult It is to draw voters away frcm [he major parties (o "waste" their ballots on a strictly dry ticket. All this was obvious enough irtien, at a psychological moment out stepped U. s. District Attor- dlate- lowering effect upon - the blooil pressure Is due to extensive loss of blood. The poison ol tte honey bee Is a dangerous poison to Weed vessels and Its ads as 'a marked stumlant of smooth miucle, such as that of the heart and of the lining of the intestines. It caura the uterus (3 contract, as well as (he bronchial tubes. Obviously, the poison of a honey bee It a dangerous substance, and when Injected Into the bcdy in large' amounts, such as follows multiple toe stings, becomes a menace to life itself. The person who has suffered multiple bee stings should, therefore, be put promptly to retf flic action of his toart and of his kidneys should be watched care- i"»y. If his blocd pressure falls rapidly, h e w m require support for the blood pressure in order to sustain his life. The Editor's Letter Box Campalgn Funds (To the editor:) An editorial entitled "Campaign Funds" in a late Issue of your paper, is one of the m^st,sensible, editorials I have seen in a long time. You say "the s'.ate's corrupt practice act In-so-far as it Imposes a limit upan the campaign expenditures of candidates is a big joke." You never told a bigger truth, and again you say that "candidates and their campaign organizations ought to be required to submit detailed statements of con- trlbuticns and expenditures" is a splendid suggestion. H a candidate for governor spsnds b!s limit of S5.000 and his friends put up $50,000 or $75,000' fcr his election or nomination, undoubtedly no candidate has such, friends that will put up that amount of money without, any hops of reward and yet they do it.

In 1014, he was made surgeon- general with the rank of brigadier-general. Two years following, ha was elevated to major-general and, in 1918, has retired. He died ney Charles H. Tuitle of New York with his resignation and tlie public assertion that the Elghtsnt.'i Amendment could not bs enforced and ought lo ba repealed. After that it was jusi a question whether the G. o.

No one else in Eight seemed lo have nny chancs to brat, Roosevelt and Tnttle seem- crt a sironged nun than the usual Republican candidate in New York. So the party took the plunge. In Oilier States The New Ycrk situation naturnl- y rcnifiKls one of what has happened this year In the Important normally Republican slates of New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts nnd Pennsylvania. Republicans o( New Jersey went wet, after the ovcnvlieljniiig primary nomination of Dwlght Morrow for senator on top ot his wet declaration. The Democratic party was wet anyway and its senatorial candidate undoubtedly would have defeated any Republican dry. Republicans of Illinois ere now we', ar.d Uier senatorial candidate. Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCormtck, has been repudiated by tlie Anti-Saloon League, which is backing an independent dry candidate. More votes for the two wet can- dfctntes, Eben Draper nnd "Bossy" Gillis, were, cast in tha Massachusetts Republican senatorial primary lhan for William ,\i. Butler, the dry, who won. Inference is that Butler would have beer, beaten by wet Mr. Draper except lor tlie Gillis complication. Tlie Democratic parly there is wet and be- caiuc of thnt, (act.
