ORIGIN OF THE PEARL.
Secretion Formed for Defense, Think*
, M. Seurat"
? The origin of the pearl in the shell
I of the py^tet,^ oiT~otuer bivalve 01
" inoll?a^ has been the object of' a
^?considerable amount of investigation
') ?n9ir speculation. 'Among'* the' more
; recent studies of the subject may be
V notedLthose of M. Seurat recorded in
the "Comptes Rendus." This natural
ist finds that in pearl oysters from
the Gambia lagoons, In the South
I Pacific, the pearls are due to a small
- worm-a sort of tapeworm. In cysts
on.the body and mantle of .the oyster
he has found true pearls surrounding
a nucleus whick he has shown to be
one of these worms. Like other tape
". worms, this, one, concerned in the pro
duction of. pearls, requires a second
. host in which tb complete its develop
i ment. " And M. Seurat considers that
the ray is the second host in this
I case, for he'has found, in the spiral
- Intestine of this fish small tapeworms,
which he regards as the adult form
of the larval worm of the pearl oys
ter. The author has named this new
. species'Of tapeworm Tylocephalum

held that the pearl is a secretion

Coyotte Attacks Lad.
Greenville, Special.-Tearing itself
loose from its chain, a half-tamed
coyotte ran at large on the streets
here attacking several people, among
th?m Luther Rogers, a 12-year-old
white hid, whose leg was fearfully
lacerated in several places. The wolf
was caught by a big negro blacksmith
while in the act of chewing the lad's
leg. The blacksmith stunned the in
furiated animal with a blow from his
fist and later "stamped it to death.
Several negro men attacked earlier
in the evening had their clothing torn
by the wolf but suffered no injuries.
The wolf was brought here about" a
year ago from a Western State. It
has generally been ?regarded as tame
and docile, and it is feared that the
animal was suffering with rabies when
killed. The head will be sent
to a pasteur institute for examination.

broken. Blood stains have been found
in his house, and there were signs
that something had been dragged
through the back yard. A wagon was
heard going away"" from the back gate
at about 2 o'clock that night. The
supposition is that the man was kill

shot afterwards. The coroner's jury
will convene again and some startling
disclosures are expected which will
throw some light oh the perpetrators
of the dastardly deed.

hanging out some clothing she iiad
washed, and about ll o'clock she fed
the pigs. Just before 12'o'clock Mr.
Cicero Price passed the house on his
way to Gaffney, and saw her on the
porch seemingly sewing, and saw a
man going in at the gate. Soon after
this a Mr. Whelebel saw a man sitting
on the porch talking to her.

man at thc house and pointed him out
to a policeman. Officer Coyle, who,

Jonathan Swift testily remarks:
"Lord! I wonder what fool it was
that first invented kissing" and many
more are the disgruntled speeches
which' have been made by. men and
women ever since the art first became
k'hown on earth.
It is probable that every mother's
son of ns-and daughter, too-has
some sort of idea of what a kiss is,
in spite of the reticence of the lan
guage Solons, but it is doubtful if any
one ever clothed the idea more appro
priately than the lover who in 1679
wrote the epistle from which the fol
lowing extract is taken. It is trans
lated from the (jrerman.
What is a kiss ? A kiss is, as it
were, a seal expressing our sincere
attachment; the pledge of our fu
ture nnion; a dumb, but at the same
time audible, language of a living
heart; a present, which at the same
time it is given is taken from us; the
impression of an ardent attachment
on an ivory coral press; the striking
pf two fiints against one another; a
crmson balsam for a love-wounded
heart; a sweet bite of the lip; an af
fetcionate pinching of the mouth; a
ielicious dish which is eaten with
scarlet spoons; a sweetmeat which
loes not satisfy hunger; a fruit which
is planted and gathered at the same
;ime; the quickest exchange of ques
tions and answers o ftwo lovers; the
fourth degree of love.
An Fstimate of 12,150,000 Bales.
Under date of Nov. 19 Messrs.
Latham, Alexander & Co., of New
Sork, put forth an estimate of 12,
150,000 bales as the cotton crop of
1906-'07. ''This result," they say,
"'is thc average of more than 5,000
astimates addressed to us by reliable
bankers, merchants, planters and cot
ion buyers-residents of thc different
jotton-growing countries in the South
and we regard it as correst as it is
possible to obtain at this date." The
crop of 1905-'06 is given as 11,346,
000 bales. The government report of
acreage this year is stated as 1,286,
448 acres larger than last yeai\ This
paragraph is quoted from the circu
lar referred to: "The receipts to date
bave been 4,622,S62 bales against 4,
164,376 bales last year-an increase
of 158,486 bales, and with a propor
tionate increase until the end of the
season thc total yield of the crop
would be 11,747,749 hales." This is
confusing lo us.* The total of 11,747,
749 bales just quoted does not square
with the estimate of 12,150,000. There
is of course an explanation of the
discrepancy but we do not understand
it, unless, indeed, Messrs. Latham,
Alexander & Co., expect thc propor
tionate increase in receipts from this
date to the end of the season to be
[Treater than during the correspond
ing periods last year .
Deafness Cannot Bc Carea
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by * constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of thc Eustachian Tube.
When this tube ia inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the
result, and unless thc inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its
normal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused
'by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the raucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for

A Lazy Liver
May be only a tired liver, or a starved
liver. It would bo a stupid as well as
savage thing to beat a weary or starved
man becauso he lagged in his work. So
in treating the lagging, torpid liver it is
a great mistake to lash it with strong
drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an
indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled
body whose organs are weary with over
work. Start with the stomach and allied
organs of digestion and nutrition. Put
them in working order and see how
quickly your liver will becomo active.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
has made many marvelous cures of "liver
trouble " by Its wonderful control of tho
organs of digestion and nutrition. It re
stores the normal activity of the stomach,'
Increases tho secretions of thc blood-mak
ing glands, cleanses thc system from poi
sonous accumulations, and so relieves thc
liver of the burdens imposed upon it by
the defection of other organs.
