Letter From '?ardnerville School.
Dear Editor:- Well, vacation is
.over and we are back in the school
room, in harness, and hard at work.
I guess this accounts for your not
hearing from the various schools
earlier. I see by this week's paper
jon have not heard from any of the
schools this term. I hope my letter
will be the first to reach you. Now
I will begin to give you the news of
After the gayeties of the summer
the visitors are returning home.
Mrs. Bunch and daughter leave for
Florida Friday. The teachers have
all returned to their schools. Miss
Kate Love will be with us for a
We had quite a romantic mar
riage last Sunday Mr. Ben Lanham
went by Miss Mary Shaw's home to
take her, suppesedly to the union
meeting at Horn's Creek. But it
seems they tired of this courting
bueiness, so the next we heard was
"Mary Shaw is married. They went
to Rev. Press Lanham's Sunday in
stead of going to church and were
married there." We shall miss Mary
at school so much. However, such
things will happen. We don't like
to give up the girls in pur neigh
borhood but Mary will not be too
far off for us not to see her. An
other one of our girls, Miss Emmie
Cooper, has left us and entered the
Tubman high school in Augusta.
Our school still has a good en
rollment, twenty-three scholars up
to-date, and we are expecting sev
eral more. I am glad to say that.we
have our same teacher Miss Mary
The weather has been so bad the
past week or two that the farmers
could not get out their cotton. They
are very busy picking it out and

neighborhood but the corn does

This tribute to an article adver
tised in this paper comes to us from
Spartanburg, S. C. Mr. T. G. Rei
ly of that town writes "A few days
ago I stepped off the train down at
Union and another traveling man
whom I had never seen before walk
ed along with me to the hotel. He
asked me what I was selling and as
usual, I said Luzianne Coffee. He
says, "Well well, I am glad to
know you. I have been using Luzi
anne for nine years. I live in Atlan
ta, and a few months ago moved to
another part of the city. The grocer
I began trading with in this new
part of town did not sell Luzianne:
He sent us a high priced bulk roast
ed coffee that he ground in his
store. My wife called" ray attention
to the fact that our coffee bill bad
IUD np three times as heavy as when
.we used Luzianne. I told him to
buy Luzianne, or lose a coffee cus
tomer. He bought it on my warn
ing and to-day is selling Luzianne
Importance of Healthy
Edgefield Readers Should Learn
to Keep the Kidneys Well.
The kidneys have a big work to
do. All the blood in the body is
coursing th rough the kidneys con
stantly to be freed of poisonous
matter. It is a heavj- enough task
when the kidneys are well, but a
ccJd, chill, fever or some thought
less exposure is likely to irritate,
inflame and congest thc kidneys and
interrupt the purifying work.
Th u the aching frequently be
gi: -- and ?B often accompanied by
sen irregularity of the urine-too

wocoorful merit of Doan's kidney

that has been used in kidney troub

We became greatly interested In the
weather during the last hot spell, and
after much research; consisting of in
|erviewing the weather authorities and
reading their statements explaining
heat, we have assembled these helpful
The hot ware was caught by a high
barometric pressure at a distance. The
high barometric pressure was at a
distance because it was not here, arid
lt was caused by the absence of a
low barometric pressure. It was not
a hot wave. Heat does net travel in
waves; neither does cold. As a mat
ter of fact, we have neither h.eat nor
cold in the general acceptance of these
terms. When we have a high barom
etric pressure maintained for a pro
longed period, the influx of attenuated
air from the contiguous territory aids
the raj s of the sun in Increasing the
apparent calorification of the atmo
sphere. This peculiarity, however, is
only noticeable to a height of four
miles from the earth. At thirty miles
up we find no heat whatever. We de
rive our sensations of heat and cold
from the diffusion of molecules in the
radial territory. This should bo clear
to any thinking person.
One might, ask what keeps the air
where it is kept until the high baro
metric pressure is dissipated.
To this the answer is that it i3 not
kept. It is not there to be kept. Ail
is not anywhere. Air is everywhere.
Air is neither hot nor cold. It is
juat air. A high barometric pressure
obtains, say, in the south temperato
zone iu December. Therefore we say
it is summer there and winter here. In 1
fact, the terms summer and winter
mean nothing. When the barometric
preEsure is lowered, the temperature
is also. Thus, at a certain time of the
year it is lowered io the point whero
snow falls. This is what, for lack of
a positive term, we cali winter. And,
vice versa, we get summer.
There is no such thin,*; as weather.
What wo designate as weather is the
recurrent manifestation of differing
barometric pressures in or away from
some place. This produces changes in
our atmospheric envelope, and we say
we are warm or cold, as the case may
be, when we are neither. There is
no such tiling as whither, nor is there
rain, snow, cold or ! .it. These are
merely sequelae of ;:?e stages of ba
