Edgefield People Give Credit
Where Credit is Due.
People of Edgefield who suffer
with sick kidneys and bad backs

depended upon. The best is Doan's
kidney pill, a medicine for the kid
neys onh% made from pure roots
and herbs, and the one that is Lack
ed by cures in Edgefield. .
Read what follows:
It's convincing testimony.
W B Paul, clerk, Butler street,
Edgefield, S. C., says: "I was both
ered by kidney complaint from
childhood and it got wcrse after I
had the measles about twelve years
ago. I suffered from acute pains
throughout my body and I had
much trouble from a weakness from
the kidneys and bladder. Doan's
kidney pills were just what I need
ed, driving away my pains and
strengthening my kidneys and blad
der. Whenever I have felt in need
of a kidney medicine since then
Doan's kidney pills have come to
my aid. I consider them the best
kidney medicine to be had."

Genuine sardines are the young of
the pilchard. Their name comes from
the fact that they are most numerous
off the coast of Sardinia. They swim
lu the spring in shoals containing mil
lions-fish shaped shoals'ten miles long
and a half mile wide. The sardines are
netted and taken at once to the shore.
There they are washed, scraped and
sprinkled with salt. The salt is soon
removed, the heads and gills cut off
and there is another washing. Then,
on beds of green brush, the fish are
dried in the sun. Next they are bolled
in olive oil till cooked thoroughly. The
packers-women always-take them
now and pack them in the tin boxes
we all know, filling up each box with
bolling oil, fitting on the lid and mak
ing the boj air tight by soldering the
Joints together with a jet of hot steam.
Sardines* are more or less perfect ac
cording as they are prepare^nore or
less immediately ofter their capture
and according as the oil they are pack
ed in is more or less pure.
The Young French Girl.
A young French girl enters the thea
ter with her father. She takes her
seat directly In front of the privileged
American girls "finishing" their edu
cation. Her untouched flowerlike face
ls alight with anticipated pleasure,
with a soft vividness of intelligence
that could never be cursed with the
word "brainy." Her hair is bound
with a little old. fashioned snood and
tiny buckle; a strangely simple even
ing dress covers the exquisite ardor
of her slender body. Quickly four
faces, the faces of the overindulged,
the overprecocious, the overnthletic and
the overdressed, turn to study her.
There ls something to learn in this lit
tle French maid, whose eyes never
meet a man's, who is never allowed to
walk alone on the street, whose un
conscious grace envelops her like a
veil, who ls sheltered like a delicate
bird, yet trained to the utmost energy,
reserve, accomplishment and useful
Wall Street Superstition.
Almost all the Wall street specula
tors are superstitious fellows who be
lieve in charms and amulets. In their
pockets they carry lucky coins, a rab
bit's foot, a horse chestnut or some
thing of the kind. One Wall street
i man, much envied by his companions,
has a short piece of a hangman's rope
to conjure with. Many of the custom
ers in the offices are even more credu
lous than the professional traders in
their belief in signs and omens. There
is a deep seated tradition that Tues
day is "low day" in a "bull market"
and "high day" in a "bear market."
Some persons speculate on "systems,"
and others employ "charts." Once
they exploited a machine In Wall
street known as a "market register."
It was about as effective as helping
anybody to win at Stock Exchange
speculation as it is to rub up against a
hunchback for luck'just before yon bet
on a horse race.-Munsey's Magazine.
He Got Valuable Information.
The story is told of the times of
Aretas Blood and the old Manchester
locomotive works that a student came
to Mr. Blood once and wanted to study
the business of locomotive building in
his vacation days. The student came
well recommended, and Mr. Blood,
who never had much use for these
.fech" people, sent him down to the
boiler shop and placed him in charge
of the old foreman. The old man took
the "tech" man around, and in the
course of the inspection of the shop
they came across one boiler on the In
side of which was a man at work.
"How does that man get out?' in
quired the "tech" man.
"Oh," said the venerable pilot, "he
doesn't get out. We always count
upon losing at least one man in build
ing a boiler."-Manchester Union.
Napoleon Obeyed the Mob.
In "The Corsican-A Diary of Na
poleon's Life In His Own Words,"
Bonaparte tells how, as an obscure sol
dier, he witnessed some of the open
ing scenes of the revolution: "I lodged
Bue du Mall, Place des Victories. At
the sound of the tocsin and at the
news that the Tuileries were attacked
I started for the Carousel. Before I
had got there In the Rue des Petits
Champs I was passed by a mob of hor
rible looking fellows parading a head
stuck on a pike. Thinking I looked too
much of a gentleman, they wanted me
to 6hout 'Vive la nation!' which I did
promptly, as may easily be imagined."
When a Great Man Diet.
There can be but austere and serions
thoughts in all hearts when a sublime
spirit makes Its majestic entrance into
another life, when one of those beings'
who have long soared above the crowd
on the visible wings of genius, spread
ing all at once other wings which we
did not see, plunges swiftly into the
unknown.-From Hugo's Funeral Ora
tion on Balzac.
"He used to complain because he
never got what he wanted to eat."
"Yes, but he's rich now."
"Yes, and now he complains because
he never wants what he gets to eat."

Adam Bonoff, manager of the
Krug theatre in Omaha, Neb., and
iiving at 1511 north seventeenth
street, that city, in a statement giv
en for publication, says: .
"I have been a sufferer from stom
ach trouble for the past ten years,
and had to avoid potatoes and all
starchy food. I was nervous and
restless, rarely ever gettting a good
night's sleep. I always awoke with
a dull pain in my stomach, and
belched gas frequently. I was con
stipated all the time.
"I traveled considerably in search
of health, and treated with the best]
physicians in New York, Chicago
and Hot Springs without relief, and
finally was compelled to give up my
business, as I thought for good.
"A'friend recommended Cooper's
New Discovery to me. I was desper- j
ate, and decided to give it a trial.
Am now feeling fine, eating and
sleeping well, without any signs of
