P UBLISHED WEEKLY. WINNSBORO, S. C., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3,.1902. ETBIHDi~
Editor of The News and Ierald:
My Dear Sir-Please be good
: enough to allow me space enough
to utter a word of a purely per
sonal nature. "A most annoying
experience, which I have had
here in Buffilo, N. Y., has gone
all over the country in a cruel
and false form. I had a clipping
from a South Carolina paper sent
me by a friend in my old college
town Greenville. That clipping
-was based on a New York tele
4,gram, and contained thirty-three
lines. By actual count, withi
the space of thirty-three lines,
'there were thirtee'n falsehoods.
And you are aware that there are
people in the world connected
with journalism who are pecu
liarly pleased to get a morsel
defamatory of a Christian minis
ter's character. In a sense, this
may be justifiable, but in another
sense it becomes very serious,
especially where falsehoods are
manufactured and sent abroad in

tails of recent experiences with
some saloon men in this city be
yond saying that in a sense I was
responcible for- the arrest of a
man for violating the laws of the
State. Through a cunning device
this saloon man and a gang had
me arrested y way of retaliation.
Yesterday ese men, through
their lawyer, twithout my solicita
tion, appeared before the judge
and withdrew their charge, open
saying that they did not think

FOOL THAT ALMOST TALKS
'et Its Complicated Mechanism Can
Be Tended by a Girl.
The most highly developed of ma
hine tools is the automatic screw ma
hine, and, like many another con
rivance for saving labor, its home is
;ew England. It is a development of
he ordinary steel working lathe, the
ntermediate step being the monitor
ithe, in which the various cutting
ools protrude from the side of a steel
urret like thirteen inch guns from a
iattleship turret. In the nonautbmatic
crew machine the turret is revolved
y the operator so as to bring each tool
ato play, just as the turret on the old
lonitor was revolved to bring one gun
fter another into action. But in the
utomatic machine the work is done
rithout human guidance.
In making screws, nuts, bolts, studs
nd other small pieces- that must be
urned, drilled or threaded for watches,
locks, typewriters, electrical lnstru
aents and other mechanisms all the
perator has to do is to feed the
stock"-a long, thin rod of steel or
rass-to the machine. The feeding
wechanism carries the rod slowly for
rard into the field of action. The tur
et advances and puts Its first tool at
vork on the end of the rod. When this
001 has done Its task, the turret with
raws ft. turns and advances a second
ool into action. Each cutting tool
,round the turret has its distinct work
o perform-one cutting a thread, an
ither shaping a head, another putting
in a point, another drilling a hole, still
.nother putting on knurling. The .tur
et automatically brings each of per
Laps six tools into action. and when
he work is finished the completed
crew drops Into a pan, while the
'stock" is automatically fed forward
o begin the complex operation again.
L stream of machine oil pours contin
ously on the work to carry away the
eat, and the little metal cuttings col
ct in a heap under the machine.
Hour after hour this wonderful au
maton goes throigh its cycle of oper
tions, the turret clicking every mo
ent as it brings a new tool forward.

CUTTING HIMSELF OFF.
The Blunt Way In Which Chaplain
Cannon Refused a Fortune.
The Rev. Edward Cannon. a chap
lain to King George .IV., was a dog
gedly independent man. On one occa
sion he refused to compliment his roy
al master on his singing Ind foria
time fell into disfavor. His mamfer
was high handed and not always too
courteous, but his actions were always
on the side of right and.justice. The
biography of his friend Barham, the
author of the "Ingoldsby Legends,"
contains, among other anecdotes 'of
Cannon, the story of how he disinher
A silly old lady summoned him to
her house and pretended to be declin
ing in health. She told him she had
made her will, by which the whole of
a considerable fortune was to be left
"I don't believe it." said Cannon aft
er a pause, in which he eyed her
doubtfully. The lady assured him that
the document was lying in a desk in
"I won't believe it," persisted Can
non, "unless I see It." -
Siniling at his incredulity, she placed
the'will in his hands. Cannon read it.
"Well," he said deliberately, "if I
had not seen it in your own hands, I
could not have believed you were such
an unnatural brute."
Thrusting the paper t ween the bars
of the grate, he continued in a sevel?,
low voice: "Have you no one more
nearly connected with you than I-no
one to whom your money should go,
who has a right to be provided feir
first and best? Pooh! You don't
know how to make a will. I'll send
for a lawyer, and he shall make your
will. You shall leave me a legacy.
There's no harm in that, but I'm not
going to *.ke it all to please you.
Good day, ma'am!"
The Simple Explanation of a Very
An Instance of nonfamillarity with
simple scientific facts is illustrated by
an article that goes the rounds of the
press once or twice aunually-namely,
the story ofgtbe.electrified house. The

~discovered that everything he

Inspector Is therefore summoned and
reports that the wires of his company
are intact and that the electricity must
come from some other source.
It does not dawn on any of the peo
ple consulted that the discoverer of
the phenomenon is unconsciously per

several thouse nd volts, which discharge
at every opportunity. One may even
get electric discharges from his knuc
kles against the brass lock of a hand
bag which he may be carrying while
walking on a stone pavement during
cold, dry weather.
But, dismissing newspaper science,
it is somewhat astonishing, in view of
the many ways in which in cold, dry
counteies electricity is unIntentionally
developed and manifested by spark
ing, that the first knowledge concern
ing this phenomenon did not come to
the ancients in this way rather than
by the attraction of light substances

however. may be that the scientists of
bygone days did not reside in cold, dry
When to Eat Fruit.
The questIon is often asked. At what
time of day should fruit be eaten? In
tropieal countries, where fruit is the
chief article of fod,. the rule appears
to be that the earlier in the day It is
taken the better and the later the
worse, - In hot weather many wise
people will eat none after noon. alleg
ing that the digestion then declines in
power with the decline of the day and
the fruit. instead of digesting, decom
poses owing to the presence of the sac
charine matter. The objection in fruit
and certain kinds of -vegetables late in
the day, be the explanation what it
may, is certainly justified by an ample
experience, though some persons can
eat fruit at all hours without feeling
any inconvenience.,-Table Talks.
