State. The booths are artisti

Some Information for Visitors to the
Probably the only place upon
the western hemisphere that the
cultivation of te% .(camellia thea)
as a commercial proposition has
been undertaken with any degree
of success is in the vicinity of
Charleston, at Pinehurst. Ex
peiiments began 1 ire about 10
years ago by piivat.; means, and
were so successful that the
United States department of
agriculture was attracted to them,
and under the auspices of Secre
taiy Wilson the output has
largely increased from a few hun
dred pounds to nearly 4,OCO in
The visitor to Pinehurst may
see thrifty gardens of tea from
many climes, growing under many
conditions, and in some instances
with the assistance of irrigation;
a tea factory equipped with the
-equisite apparatus for the manu
facture of black and green tea,
embracing tie modern machinery
which has been substituted for
manual labor in the curing of
black tea, a well trained body of
colored children, who pluck the
tea leaf, and the school where
they receive gratuitous instruc
tion at such seasons a they are
not occupied in field work.
The tea farm is open to visi
tors at all times except on Sun
days and national holidays, and
it is a revelation to the traveler
from other sections of the coun

The government has leased the
Pinehurst farm for a period of
five years, and in addition has
instituted a second farm near
Charleston. There is much to be
hoped for in this industry for

To foster it the public-spirited
women of Dorchester county
have formed a committee, with
Mrs. J. E. C. Pedeer as chairman,
and have as one of the features
of the woman's building an old
colonial tea room, where only
native tea is served, amid historie
surroundings, of decoration and
furniture thait were young when
the use of tea was introduced
from China. It is a charming
spot to linger, and while sipping
the fragrant herb to examine
these old world belongings. Black
tea seems the favorite and is
made upon scientific principles;

Having a Run on Chamberlain's
Between the hours of eleven o'clock
a. in. and closing time at night on Jan.
25th, 1901, A. F. Clark, druggist, Glade
Springs, Va., sold twelve bottles of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He
says, "I never handled a medicine that
sold better or gave better satisfaction to
my customers." This Remedy has
been in general use in Virginia for
imiany years, and the people there are
well acquainted with its excellent
qualities. Many of them have testi
tied to the remarkable cures which it
has effected. When you need a good,
reliable medicine for a cough or cold. (
