Judge Mciver Tells Jury Fore
man Why He Gets a Dollar.
The jury in the case of David
Smith against the Columbia Street
Railway brought in a verdict yester
day for the defendant. Smith alleged
that his automobile stalled on a trol
ley line and a car came along and
caused considerable damage in the
collision. The company claimed that
the road was blocked for traffic and
the motor car was on forbidden ter
Judge Mciver asked the foreman
of the jury if he understood the cus
tom of the winning side handing the
foreman $1. The foreman of the jury
said he did not know. The court then
explained that the custom was hand
ed down by England, and : : years
gone by it was the custom of the
times for the winning side to treat
the jury. The Americans changed the
treat to a gift of $1 which at that
time was considered equivalent to 12
drinks. Times have changed since
then and the jurors wonder how they
could get 12 treats.-Greenville Pied
Time to Clean Up.
The robins have come, the poets
are beginn:..g to sing of spring ,and
health officers are planning for a
wholesale spring cleaning.
There is no better time than the
first week of moderate weather to
go on a hunt for piles of filth, sta
ble manure, decaying garbage and
vegetables which are breeding places
for flies, rats, roaches and vermin.
One small pile of stable manure
will breed enough flies during the
first months of spring to harass and
menace the health of a whole neigh
borhood. It will give the little pests
such a start that it will take a long
war to exterminate them during the
summer months by swatting, trap
ping and screening.
1 So it will be easily seen that the
time to clean up is before the disease
carrying insects get a start. All ac
cumulations of filth should be gather
ed up and removed. Where it is not
practicable to remove piles of ma
nure frequently, they should be cov
ered so that flies can not get in to
deposit their eggs, or the fly that is
hatched can not get out.
Flies do not travel far, seldom not
more than a mile, unless carried by
the wind, so that any community that
cleans up need have little fear of the
flies from some other community.
But even if they travelled long dis
tances they would not select a clean
.community, where there are no breed
ing places and but little food to eat.
Just at this time, in addition to
the cleaning up of breeding places,
swatting, trapping and screening
may be said to be of a real value,
because each fly may mean countless
thousands later, unless he is exter
minated. Now is the time to swat
and to clean up and a few days, or
hours of dilligent work at this period
of the year may save weeks of trap
ping and swatting later in the season
as well as safeguarding the health of
the community in which you live.
HEALTH AND HAPPINESS

Vigorous, Red-Blooded Men

Life's Joys and Benefits
RED BLOOD IS THE SOURCE OF
Pepto-Mangan Creates Rich, Red
Blood-Builds Up the Body
Benefits are Real
Nature never intended that any
man or woman should be made un
happy with thin, worn-out, sluggish
Why, then, do men and women
with poor, thin blood (anemia) ac
cept this condition^ thinking that it
is natural that they should remain
this way? How unhappy such people
make themselves and tho^e around
them! And it is so unnecessary, for
unless you suffer from some deep
seated ailment, you can soon remedy
any form of poor health caused by
thin, impoverished blood.
Pepto-Mangan is prepared just for
such people. Pepto-Mangan contains
the very elements that impart rich
ness to the blood and increase the
supply of the tiny red-blood cells that
good healthy blood must contain.
Pepto-Mangan is put up in both
liquid and tablet form. Both forms
are exactly alike in medicinal quali
ties. When you order Pepto-Mangan,
be sure to ask the druggist for
"Gude's." And look for the name
"Gude's" on the package. If "Gude's"
is not there, it is not Pepto-Mangan.

T. B. GRENEKER,
Germans Warned By French
Terms Must Be Obeyed.
Paris, April 3.-After warning the
German charge d'affaires in a note
that the French government would
admit of no derogation of the treaty
of Versailles, Premier Millerand con
ferred with Marshal Foch this even
ing. Mashal Foch then had a confer
ence with the minister of war, Andre
Lefevre, who later was received by
Paris, April 3.-In a statement to
a Havas representative this evening,
Premier Millerand said:
"We are confronted with a sys
tematic violation of article 43 of the
treaty. Bad faith in the explanations
offered by the German government
for its alleged mistake is evidence by
the rapidity of the advance of the
troops, despite our interdiction. The
necessity of repressing the trouble in
the Ruhr district does not justify the
German initiative. The acts of dis
order, in fact, were localized, already
the conflict is approaching extinction
by peaceful means.
"Intevention by the regular forces
may lead to the worst consequences."
M. Millerand, as president of the
council, naturally refused to state
specifically what measures the
French government contemplated to
counteract the German proceedings,
"I have made it a point to ask ad
vice of Marshal Foch and at the same
time have informed and consulted
with the allies."
It is believed that France will de
mand as a guarantee the occupation
by the allies of Frankfort, Darm
stadt and Hanau.
Expect a Definite Military Pol
icy in a Short Time.
Washington, Apl. 3.-The Senate
cleared the way today for considera
tion of SXGhftiii? pr?ipo?ing the es
tablishment of a definite riiilitay pol
icy. Debate on the army reorganiza
tion bill framed by the Senate mili
tary committee is to begin Monday
and its passage is predicted by Sen
The bill differs radically from the
House measure passed on March 18,
in that it provides for compulsory
military training, consolidation of
the national guard regular army, and
reserves, composed of trained men
into one citizen's army and also for
a general staff eligibility system sim- 1
ilar to that in the French army. The
House bill left the compulsory mili
tary training issue for separate leg
islation, and retained the general
feature of the present army organi
zation, with general features of the
present army oiganization with pro
vision for a. regular establishment of
300,000 enlisted men and 17,000
officers, as compared with 280,000
and 18,000 respectively in the Senate
Better Prices for Cattle.
Clemson College, Apr. 5.-Indica
tions are that the consumer is going
to continue to pay a high price for
beef. Last year at that time beef cat
tle on foot were bringing around 20
:ents per pound, while now the same
rattle will scarcely bring 15 cents.
Still the man who buys the beef is
paying practically the same price
now that he was paying last year
ivhen cattle on foot were high.
It would seem that steer feeders
and cattle breeders will make a mis
take if they discontinue their opera
tions, for it is the man that feeds cat
tle every year who comes out ahead.
The feeder or breeder who tries to
come in on the high prices and sell
high usually does the reverse.
With the low price of cattle on
foot there have been many herds dis
persed The breeding cattle have gone
to the block. This in an indication,
says W. J. Shealy, Extension Service
Animal Husbandry, that if this low
price continues for a short while, the
law of supply and demand will with
in a very short time come in and the
producer will get a high price for his
beef cattle, and the consumer will
continue to pay the high price for
beef. It would seem then that the
man who is fixed for steer feeding
and can grow his feed, save his ma
nure, and continue these operations,
is bound to come out ahead. In view
of this fact, suggests Mr. Shealy,
those men who plan for feeding
should plant now crops such as vel
vet beans, silage and corn for feed
ing out cattle this year.

YOU, thc buyers, are the real builders of wagons. You put
the final Okay upon the use of certain materials and con
struction when you buy a wagon containing them-and
refuse to buy a wagon that does not. We want to show you how
the Thornhill Wagon is built. Upon a plain statement of facts
we are willing to rest our case. We believe the Thornhill way
would be your way if you should build a wagon. -4
For spokes and axles tough second growth highland hickory is
used For hubs and felloes the MurJy white oak is preferred.
This wood grows upon the mountain side. The ground is hard
tko climate severe. It has to fight for life. It has nearly twice
the 6trengrh of oak and hickory that grows under softer conditions.
Outdoors* under shelter it remains for three to five years. Th?
sap dries in it, giving it a strength that's kin to steel.
Full Circle Iron
Malleable Front Houri Plate
Trussed Bolsters and
Long Wear Beds
liana in Turning
In turning and backing up, with the ordi
nary circle iron, which is only a half circle,
olsters run off the end of the track and
hang. It is difficult to make short turns and
back up. The Thornhill full circle iron
gives a continuous track on which the bol
sters can tum.
The gears of Thornhill wagons stay in line for
life. Instead of the usual front hound plate,
a hound plate of malleable hon is used. It is
a metal jacket braced at eight points that
keeps gears from ever getting out of line.
On the front bolsters of Thornhill wagons
are heavy iron plates running along top and
bottom-connected by rivets that run clear
through the bolster. Strength and lightness
are combined. Rear gears are strongly
ironed. There are braces on both top and
bottom that extend the full length of the
Solid trust bars extend the full length of thc
axles giving them double strength.
If you examine the beds of Thornhill
Wagons closely you will see at once the
superiority of the construction. The
bottoms are rc-inforced over front and
Come in and examine this wagon for
yourself. We will take pleasure and
pride in showing you a Thornhill-The
wagon made of tough highland oak and
hickory'-with features all others lack.
