The Story of
Our States j
By JONATHAN BRACE
XXXI.-CALIFORNIA j
THERE ls I
an a tinos- j
phere of ru- f
munee envoi- j
oping the {
?>arly history
of California
which even
encircles tho origin of the name.
About 1 r?*JO a Spanish love story
was published III which there
was an imaginary inland In the
Par Past called California. Some
fifteen years Inter a party of
Spanish adventurers carno upon
the peninsula which we now cull
Lower California. Believing that
they had discovered a romantic
island similar to the one tn the
novel, they called lt California.
Later on, tho territory to the
north became known ns Alta
California or High California
and when lt became a state, lt
was accordingly called Cali
fornia. The first settlers were
tho Prancl8can monks who came
up from Mexico and established
missions, and many aro tho leg
ends woven around these plonejr
Padros. There shortly grew up
Mexican settlements around the
missions which tho wonderful
climate and fertile soil pros
pered.
The government, while under
Mexican control, was more or
less independent, and at the out
break of the Mexican war, Fre
mont, who was later defeated
for the presidency, occupied Cal
ifornia. When peace was made
In 1818, California became Uni
ted States territory. That same
year gold was discovered In the
Sacramento Valley and the rush
of people to California began.
The population grew so rapidly
that in 1850 California was ad
mitted as the thirty-first state
of the Union. With 1.4 158.207
square miles, lt ls tho largest
state oxcept Texas. Politically,
Its power has been rapidly grow
ing. California now has thirteen
presidential electors.

GOOD WEEVIL SI'GGLSTIOX.
H. II. N?s m i th, of West Union, lias
advanced tho idea of protection for
partridges In order that thc birds
may bo lof I to destroy all stray boll
weevils in the Holds. Ito bas seen
the statement published in a reputa
ble farm paper that Investigation has
disclosed the fact thal partridges are
great lovers of tho boll weevil as a
food. Hirds killed have been dissect
ed, 'heir craws examined, and the
result shown thal thousands of hoi!
weevils will ho destroyed by oaeh
partridge that stays about where the
weevil has infested a field.
Mr, N'osmltll suggests and it is
don I less a good inggoslion lhal all
farmers post their lands forbidding
partridge hunting, ihn.-; helping aol
only lo preserve the hirds, but. giving
valuable aid ill tho fit?hl against tho
1 ?r? 11 weevil.

IIIS DEATH CAME SUDDENLY.
('liarlos Idiulatodt Was Found Doiul
in lied tit HI? Home.
Tho announcement of tho death of
Churlos Lindstedt, formerly of Wal
halla, but for years a resident near
Seneca, cunio as a source of Borrow
to many friends hero on Saturduy
evening, Oct. 22d. Few, however,
knew o' his doath until after tho
funeral and Interment Sunday after
noon.
lt is not known when Mr. Llnd
s tod t's death occurred, but lt was on
Saturday morning that his body was
found, doath having come to him |
botwoon that time and Thursday,
evening, when he was seen by neigh
bors at his homo. Not seeing him j
during Friday, neighbors began to
wonder at his absence from homo,
and an investigation was started. Tho
house was locked, so tho door was
broken open and tho house enterod,
and Mr. Linds ted Cs body was found)
in bod. cold in death. Ho had not
boon sick so far as tho knowledge of |
any of his friends or neighbors had |
observed, yot his physician stated ,
that tho announcement of his death
was no', a surprise to him. as death
was liable to come lo him at any
I moment, Mr. Lindstedt having been
for a long limo subject to attacks pf
heart t'ai line? and high blood pres
sure, to which causes Iiis sudden'
deal li was due.
Tho fact that Mr. Lindstedt was
alone when doath came was due to
lite unfortunate circumstance that
.Mrs. Lindstedt was tinder treatment
al the hospital at ChlcU Springs,
where she had been for a moni;'. On
learning ol* the death of her half
brother, Mrs. .lames Phinney, of
West Union, went at once to Chick
Springs and accompanied Mrs. Lind
stedt to her home.
i ('liarlos A. Lindstedt was horn In
Charleston on April 9th, 1861, and
had boon married about thirty years,
his wife being, before marriage. Miss
Alice Hubbard, of tho Richland sec
tion. Tho deceased is survived by
. his widow, two half-sisters and one
half-brother, those being Miss Annie
Stucke, of Charleston; Mrs. James
Phinney, of West Union, and Henry
Stucke, of Oklahoma. j
I Mr. Lindstedt had many friends in '
this section, who will learn of his
doath willi sorrow, for his friends
were numbered by his acquaintances.
Charles Lindstedt was a splendid fol- :
low, a friend to all who were worthy
Of his friendship, charitable In his
views, yet by no means ono who
sanctioned wrong-doing, vico or ovil.
Typical of the dally lifo of tho man
was an incident of which we have
heard. Mr. Lindstedt was a groat
lover of flowers and about his homo
there was always a profusion of
them. During the protracted illness
of a neighbor Mr. Lindstedt was the
constant inquirer after the patient
and tho donor of handsome, fragrant
bouquets almost every Sunday. Ono
day tho invalid passed to tho bet'er j
world, and Mr. Lindstedt called again
at the homo bereft of a loved one. .
Dut ho carried no flowers on thi3
I visit, and ho explained this by say
lng that the invalid could no longer
I enjoy them, and was now enjoying
! tho beauties of better and purer ,
flowers than ho could grow. His
were for tho living-and lt ls said of ,
.him that ho never willingly lost an1
i opportunity to uso tho flowers result-'
; lng from his labors for the cheering
of others about him, especially when
i sickness had come and brought tho
shadows close about some friend cr
i acquaintance.
j Personally the doath of Mr. Lind-:
stedt conies as a sorrow to the edi
tor of Tho Courier. We had known !
him for many years -intimately for:
some eight or ton years-and wo I
? iiiiver found a time when wo wore
I too busy to stop and shake hands
with him. 'I was a pleasure always.
I He was not a man of extensive edu
cation or unusual brilliance. Ho wis
'simply a man a clean man as we
; knew him, and we admired him for
his manliness. Paulls he had, wilh
lout doubt: hut they were not vicions
; faults and he was "n man for all
that." Ile is gone now, and wo like
I lo think of liim as a friend who In
1 life sought lo do some good all 'he
I good ho could and we honor his
memory.
Mr. Lindstedt was a consistent
i
j member of st. John's Lutheran
church of Walhalla. Ile was, wo be
lieve, a Christian in the trne sense
I of tho term a follower of Christ to
, tho bes! of his ability, Funeral sor
I vices were hold .H the home on Sun
day shortly nf tur noon, and later a
short service In the Lutheran church
preceded the Interment in tho family
plot in th Lutheran cemetery. Tho
services were conducted by tho pas
tor of tho deceased, Hov. W. B. Aull,
of Walhalla, assisted by Rov. Ilardio,
of Seneca.

GOOD MIA N GONE TO HIS REST.
-
Rev. Hobort Cobb Passed Away In
Eighty-third Y%ar.
A good man was called to bis re
ward when Rev. Robert Cobb passed
from this lifo recently. He was born
in 1838. and he served throughout
the War Rotween the States as a gal
lant soldier of the Confederacy. Ho
was wounded on the field of bullio
whllo rescuing wounded soldiers. At
the close of tho war he returned to
lils home and ontered the ministry
of the Baptist church, and for over
fifty years served his denomination
and his Lord as a faithful minister
of tho Gospel of Christ. He assisted
in the organization and constitution ;
of nlno churches and was ah ablo
minister, consecrated Christian, a
wiso counsellor and a great peace
maker. Ho was well known In both
North and South Carolina, and his
labors also oxtendod Into Georgia.
Rev. Cobb leaves a wife and seven
children, besides a host of friends,
to mourn his death.
He was a great factor In the ad
vancement, civilization and uplift of
the upper section of Oconoo, to which
territory his labors wero largely con
fined. His lifo was open, his every
act and word denoting the trueness
of the Christianity which he pro-j
fessed. j
lt can truly bo said of this good
man thai "to know him was to lovo
him." Ile was a kind and effect ion-I
tito husband and father, a good titi-1
/.en ?ind ?il ideal neighbor.
His remains wen? laid to rest In
thc Mountain drove cemetery, near j
Long Creek Academy, in thc pre?- ;
once of a large assemblage ol' soi
rowing relatives and friends. Thc ?
services wore conducted by Revs. I\
T. Burton and S. R. Cobb. Thc text.1
"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall
not want." Was used as the basis of .
tho remarks concerning tho deceased. '
and it was a most appropriate and j
fitting service.
Tho bereaved wife and children of
the deceased havo the sympathy of
many In their sorrow. May our Moa- |

served so long and so well, keep and ;
guido and protect the sorrowing

Circumstances Alter Cases Even In
Regard to Auto Accidents.
(Anderson Daily Mail.)
During the early months of tho
year 19 IS everything and everybody
were considerably unsettled. A negro ;
boy who had been living with us for
several years decided to run away,
which ho proceeded to do. Ile wenti
to Columia and was away for about,
three months. One night about ton
O'clock wo heard some loud knocking
on the back door, and we found upon
investigation that "Roog" had re-j
turned home. We thought that ho ?
had run away because his wages were ;
not large enough, hut the following
conversation took place:
"Well, Roog, we are glad to see
you back, and if you have decided
that you want to go back to work for
us, we want to know what wages you
will expect."
"Boss, I don't want no wedges;
what I wants is my Joh back."
"When did you leave Columbia?"
"Las' night."
"How did you iike ii down there?"
"1 liked it very well till day befo'
ylstlddy."
"What happened to dissatisfy
you?"
"Had a little trouble wid a auto
mobile."
"What kind of trouble?"
"Well, yon see, I had a job a-driv
ln' a big seven-passenger public ser
vice, car an' was kaitlin' people out to
de camp. As I was comin' Inter town
day befo' ylstlddy I tried to run past
a two-boss wagon what got in do road
an' didn't soca big iron telegram post
till de ear hit it right square."
"Did you damage Ibo car any?"
"Yaas, sir, a little. I broke boaf

Docidcd Advantage to Unroll Prepared
Material and Let In Light and
Sunshine.
When putting prepared roofing on .
poultry houses, lt ls a decided advan- I
tage to unroll the roofing and to let In j
light and sunshine for a few hours. ?
The roofing expands from the warm- j
lng and lien smoother when appllod to ?
the roof. Tho inside of the roll la !
cooler than tho outside air, and so if ,
not plaeod In the sun before appllca

IS YOUR HEALTH
GRADUALLY SUPPING?
Interesting Experience of a Texas Lady Who Declares That if Mort
Women Knew About Carom They Would Be Spared
Much Sickness and Worry.
Navasola, Texas.-Mrs. W. M. Peden,
of this place, relates the following interest
ing account of how she recovered her
Birength.? having realized that she wa6
actually losing her health:
"Health is the greatest thing in the
world, and when you feel that gradually
slipping away from you, you certainly sit
up and take notice. That is what 1 did
some time ago when I found myself in a
very nervous, run-down condition of
health. I was so tired and felt so lifeless
I could hardly go at all.
"I was just no account for work. I
would get a bucket of water and would
feel so weak I would have to set it down
before I felt like I could lift it to the shelf.
In this condition, of course, to do even
my housework was a task almost im
possible to accomplish.
"1 was . . . nervous and easily upset.
I couldn't rest well at night and was . . ?
just lifeless.
*'t heard of Cardui and after reading I
decided I had some female trouble that
was pulling me down. I sent for Cardui
and began it . .
"In a very short while after 1 began the
Cardui Home Treatment 1 saw an im
provement and it wasn't long until 1 was
all right-good appetite, splendid rest,
and much stronger so that I easily did my
house work.
"Later 1 took a bottle of Cardui as a
tonic. 1 can recommend Cardui and glad*
ly do so, for if more women knew, it
would save a great deal of worry and
sickness."
Thc enthusiastic praise of thousands of
other women who have found Cardui
helpful should convince you that it h
worth trying. All druggists sell it
