Anderson, Special.-The news of

gratifying to all of the patrons

brought so little. It is worth at least

of luck. The shamrock charm will

be a popular favor for luncheons. At

conscienciousness into work. But in
whatever it may be, and success will
accompany their efforts. -It is the
hardest task, this learning and living
up to the fulfillment of conscientious
effort.. It is very easy to find excuse
for the curting short, in some degree
the work or project at hand. It is
the workman who gives his employer
the premium of work on every dollar
he receives, that is going to get ahead,
and be wanted when extra and better
It is in every day life, in the homo,
in the church, in society, that the con
scientious person is wanted, for it is
'through such a person, that the best
results come, that the home is exalt
ed, the church made the strength it
should be, and society redeemed from
its frivolity and wastefulness.
It is the doing more and. better
than the allotted work, that counts.
It is not being moral and upright,
for mere individual gain, because
.good, habits give their possessors a
higher position, on a salary or money
basis, but the being good, because
goodness is a virtue that means
peace, happiness and security to the
possessor in this world, and in the
oue to come. In a commercial ccu: .,
it is the person who is above par in
character and application in con
scientious effort, that is wanted in ev
ery trade and profession, in every
walk of life. The indifferent person
may appear to succeed equally as weil
as the person that puts individual
conscientiousness into work, But in
the day when any crisis occurs, when
work becomes scarce, wages are cut,
or when a man or woman is wanted
to carry out some great work of the
moment, it will be found that the con
sciencious person stands above his
fellow, the indifferent and careless,
and the call will be to him or her, as
the case may be.
In the school, in the field of labor,
conscienciousness in the work at
hand, is what means both temporary
and future success. To carry to the
fullest possible, the lessons well
learned, and thoroughly. To com
plete the work of the hour and the
day, carefully, honestly without
waste of material or time. Ic means
success, lt means better future ef
forts. It means character strength

TEE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL
The approach of winter and the
holiday season, when the most import
ant and largest expenditures on the
part of every person and family
takes place, calls attention to. a mat
ter of great consideration, for those
who are to purchase theso supplies.
This matter-is where are you, the cit
izen, going to buy your goods, of
your home merchant, or are you al
ready sending out for catalogues from
outside* merchants of the great north
ern cities, aud figuring on saving
twenty-five cents on every ten dol
lar purchase ?
There is no greater community of
interests in a town or city, than that
which is to be found in local co-oper
ation of the people. It is the senti
ment put into active practice of doing
everything possible for your neigh
bor's interest. It is the good word
ever ready for the city's defence. It
is the ready help to promote and ad
vance every local interest which
means' public hetterments.
It is found in giving the local mer
chant every possible order, ?yery pos
sible dollar in trade for goods, that
cafi-be purchased in his store, or or
dered through his store.
The support of home institutions ie
best seen in the local patronage given
every worthy local merchant. The re
tail merchant, as a tax payer, is a
most important supporter of every
thing that makes up a municipality.
He is taxed for everything, and pro
portionally bears the greatest bur
den as a local taxpayer. This being
true the local merchant deserves tho
consistent support, and every possible
dollar of patronage from his home
At this season of the year, the pam
phlet by mail, and tho attractive ad
in some outside poriodiciil, is too apt
to draw attention away from the
local merchant. The person want
ing goods very often will say what
is the use of going to the local mer
chant, he can't carry such goods, and
so send an order to some outside mer
chant. But how does the home citi
zen know that the article wanted is
not to be found in town"? Has thc
local newspaper been looked tover,
.to see if the local merchant adver
tises, or if not having the exact ar
ticle, cannot order the goods, and so
make a small profit?
Lot this season be a new one for lo
cal buyers, in that they make up their
lists of needed goods, look up their
local merchant and give him the first
opportunity to fill every order, before
sending a dollar to some northern
city. Let the people try,this one sea
son,'and see what the result wiil be.
Give it a trial.
It's a bad habit.
It gets you into no end of trouble.
It's always bad manners to try to
pry into other persons' affairs.
Respect his silence, and don't try
to force information he does not want
The habit of prying into things has
wrecked many a friendship.

HAS FIRST ISSUE OF THE SUN.
Mrt. J. George Michel Has Kept It
Mrs. George Michel, 405-East Bid

first issue of The Baltimore Sun, May
The copy originally belonged to

who died in 1876. Prior to her death
Mrs. Weygand told her sister the pa

quested her to take charge of it. Mrs.

A CYCLONE BABY.
In Oklahoma Territory one night
last summer a cyclone swept over a
section of the country and destroyed
about forty houses. Next morning,
about thirty miles from the path of
the cyclone, a farmer going out to'
mow his meadow found a child a yep
old in the grass. It was a boy aud
he had a bedquilt wrapped around
him. The storm had brought him,
but the only hurtle had received was
a scratch on the nose.
Notice -was given to . the nearest
newspapers at once and the case w:aa
publishe i.| In this way hundreds of
people came to know about lt. One
woulo think that the child's parents
woulf'. have been found soon, but as
a matter of fact no word has come
from them yet. It may be that they
were killed, or, as some think, they
wanted to abandon the boy, though he
is a sm?rt and cunning little chap and
bei'ip: praised by everybody.
A dozen different families stood
ready to adopt him, but his home ls
with those who found him in the.
The name given to the lost baby is
simply "Cy," for the first syllable of
cyclone, and if he wants to lengthen
it out when he grows up there will
be no objections. Perhaps when man
hood is reached we shall hear of him
In the Legislature as "Mr. Cy Clone."

What Do They Cure?
The above question is often asked con
cerning Dr. Pierce's two leading medi
cines, "Golden Medical Discovery" and
" Favorite- Prescription."
The answer is that "Golden Medical
Discovery " is a most potent alterative or
blood-purifier, and tonic or invigorator
and acts especially favorably in a cura
tive way upon all thc mucous lining sur
faces, as of the nasal passages, throat,
bronchial tubes, stomach, bowels and
bladdeftvcuring a large per cent, of catar
rhal cases whether <be disease affects the
nasal passages, the tfcsoat, larynx, bron

ing cures. " -'
The"Favorite Prescription,"ls advised,
reentry acting mvigoratv
is a powerful yet gently acting invigurat
ing tonic and nervine. For weak worn
out, over-worked women-no matter what
has-caused thc break-down, "Favorite
Prescription 8 will bo found most effectlvo
in building up tho strength, regulating
the womanly functions, subduing pain
and bringing about a healthy, vigorous
condition of tho whole system.
A book of particulars wraps each bottle
giving thc formulae of both medicines and
quoting what scores of eminent med
ical authors, whose works are consulted
by physicians of all the schools of practice
as guides in prescribing, say of each in
gredient entering into these medicines.
The words of praise bestowed on the
several ingredients entering into Doctor
Pierce's medicines by such writers should
have more weight than any amount of
non-professional testimonials, because
such mon arc writing for the guidance of
their medical brethren and know whereof
they speak. 4
Both medicines are non-alcoholic, non
secret, and contain no harmful habit
forming drugs, being composed of glycerlc
extracts of the roots of native, American
medicinal forest plants. They are both
sold by dealers in medicine. You can't
afford to accept as a substitute for one of
these medicines of known composition,
any secret nostrum.
