Largest Battleship Afloat.
Yesterday the Pennsylvania, the
most formidable battleship ever con
structed, was launched at Newport
News. It even surpasses the English
dreadnoughts that have recently been
crumbling the forts along the Dar
danelles. The 12 14-inch rifles that ari
carried by the Pennsylvania have an
extreme range of 22,50') yards, and the
shells will penetrate 12 inches of armor
at a distance of 15,000. The rifles are
52 feet in length and require an expen
diture of $600 each time one of them is
fired. There are four other battleships
of the same type under construc
Should Outlaw Pistols.
Of the scores upon scores of homi
cides that occur annually in South Car
olina, it would be interesting to know
what per cent, of the mortal wounds
are inflicted by pistols. We do not be
lieve it would be an extravagant esti
mate to say that at least 75 per cent,
of homicides result from pistol wounds.
When the prohibition law is ratified by
the people, reducing to a minimum the |
carrying of the bottle in the hip-pocket,
would it not be well to enact a pro- j
hibitory law so drastic in terms with
reference to the carrying of pistols on
the person that this death-dealing
weapon will always be left at home, if
owned at all?
German Cruiser Entrapped.
It appears that the German Crusier
Prince Eitel Friedrich is entrapped at
Newport News, where she put in a
week ago for repairs. The report is
current that there are several English
warships off the Virginia coast await
ing the departure of th?; German ves
sel, just as the American fleet awaited
the departure of the Spanish fleet]
from Santiago harbor. While, of course,
we are all neutrals, norminally, if not j
neutrals after the Woodrow Wilson
type, yet since this same German
cruiser unjustifiably destroyed the
William P. Frye, an American sailing
vessel, we would secretly rejoice to
hear that the English dogs of war had j
devoured the German cruiser.
Furthermore, it seems rather strange
that we should allow a German vessel,
or even one from the Allies, to come
into one of our ports for repairs and
depart at will after confessing to hav
ing sunk one of our merchantmen. It
appears to us that it would be meet
and proper for this government to hold
the Eitel until proper reparation has
been made for the unwarranted de
struction of the William P. Frye.

To Keep Hogs Healthy.
No one should attempt to raise
hogs unless he is willing to give
them good feed, good care, and pro
tect them in every way possible
from disease. Worms, bog cholera,
lice, and canker sore mouth kill
large numbers of hogs throughout
the south, especially little pips.
To prevent worms, keep the fol
lowing charcoal mixture before the
pigs all the time:
Charcoal, 1 bushel.
Hardwood ashes, 1 bushel.
Salt, 8 pounds.
Air slaked lime, 8 pounds.
Sulphur, 4 pounds.
Pulverized coppera?, 2 pounds:
First mix the lime, salt and sul
phur thoioaghly, and then mix in
the charcoal and ashes. Dissolve the
copperas in two quarts of hot water
and sprinkle it over the whole mass,
mixing thoroughly. Store this in a
barrel under shelter, and keep some
of it in an open shallow box where
the hogs can get it as they wish.

New Evidence Constantly Being
Since the long succession of Edge

the local press there has been no
looking back. Edenfield continues
to pour in, and-better still-those
whose reports were first published
many years ago, verify all they said
in a most hearty and unmistakable
way. Read the experience of Mrs.

in my back and a g?nerai weakness

depressed and tired during the day.
At night I couldn't get much sleep,
owing to kidnej trouble. Nothing
gave me relief but Doan's kidney
pills. A short use of this remedy
brought quick and positive relief.
