The people are running amuck on
the railroad question. In North (ar.
olina the railroads have agreed to
submit to the 21 mile rate, to sell
tickets at that price, Atnd meanwhile
they appeal on the ground that the
rate is confiscatory. We do not know
whether it is or not. Neitlier does
the North Carolina legislature know.
The North Carolira lejislature does
not know whether the Laurens Ad
vertiser can afford to sell advertising

Whenever the Sauth Carolina legis
lature concludes to pass an act limit

rate they can take the paper and run
Meantime, reduction in railroad
passenger fares helps only a part of
the people. It helps the drummer,
who spends $500 a year for railroad
tickets. It helps the manufacturer,
wbo spends $500 for tickets It
helps the well-to-do man, who spends
$200 a year sending his family to the
mountains or to the seashore for the
summer and who sends h1s boys and
girls to college. It helps the lawyers
who go to the supreme court three
uir four timee a year and it helpqthe
merchants who go to New York for
goods twice a year. Half the people
spend not over $5 or $10 a year in
railroad riding and nearly half, the
poorer woomen and children scatter
ead about on the farms, don't ride on
the railroads at all. Reductions in
passenger fares may save a cotton
mill operative $2 a year, but it will
.4ave the cotton mill president $200 a
year. Isn't that so?

Cuee It by Observing a Few Important
Rules of Health.
It is amazing that so common a
difficulty as dyspepsia should be so
little understood by the general
public and that its remedy should
be so hard to find. But'it can be
cured and without any marvelous
nostrums by observing a few impor
tant rules of health. The dyspeptic
must first fix in his mind the fact
that his ailment is the result of bad
habits of eatingand living and that
these must be changed; that drugs
will do him no good. He must be
gin by avoiding all starchy foods,
as potatoes, ice, oatmeal, beans,
etc. Meats, soft bojled eggs, milk
toast, zwieback, etc., are the best
*bods for avoiding fermentation and
the gas that causes dyspeptic pains.
In serious cases .buttermilk is one
of the best dependencies. Another
is boiled milk -with a slight addition
of limeyater. Either of these will
enable 'the most chronic dyspeptic
to procure some sustenance without
serious distress. He should drink'
freely of hot water, at least two
quarts a day, always taking a glass
half an hour before mealtime. He
should not cro.wd his meals close to
gether, as with an impaired diges
tion, it -is often beat, to have the
meals six or seven hours or more
apart. The rule to be followed is
that a new meal should not 'be eaten
until the previous one .is digested
or out of the way and the stomach
has. had a littie rest,-and there Amst
be further rest after eating.
It is absolutely essential to- eat
slowly and qhew with the greatest
thoroughness. Complete chewing
in the mouth, permitting no wash
ing down with coffee or tea, sali
vates the food so that it is ready for
digestion when it goes into the
stomach, and persistence in the
practice will put good flesh on any
lean dyspeptic. Thire is a tliery
that when solid food is chewed in
the mnouth to an absolute pulp the
organas in the back of the nouth
exercise a selective action and send
to the stomach only that which is
fitted to be converted into blood and
tissue, this relieving the digestive
organs of handling the waste.
Whether or not this is correct is for
the science of the future to det'er
mine. Certain it is that nature gave
us grinding teeth for the purpose of
chewing our food and never intend
ed that we should swallow it un
chewed, as do those animals having
more than one stomach.-Ch arles

One of the most curious sights in
northwestern Canada is that of liv
ing snowv. There a curious phe
nomenon is seen in the appearance
of millions of minute black insects
wvhen a thaw occurs. During the
winter the snow is dry and crisp,
like sand, and nothing whatever
can be discovered of these insects,
but as soon as *a thaw comes they
are found everywvhere in large
patches, looking like a dusting of
soot. They are generally known as
snow fleas, or jumpers, and have
slight hopping powers, being able to
leap three or four inches. They en
tirely disappear when it freezes
again, and not a trace of them can
be fond. They do not fall with
the snow, as* there may have been
rio snow .for a month or more be
fore their arrival, and are probably
something similar to the "red snow"
of the arctic regions.-Dundee Ad
