ing Doc to:
t0 the case of an ordinary acoident,
hat is the most effective aid which
id be rendered by an ordinary person
Jth ordinary appliaooes?
j-jje quest ion cannot be too often
,?ed. The judgment; of nonpro
,-sional persons in suoh matters is
kely to be unscientific, and popular
vjcu is more or less misleading. In
e army aod navy aud on our rail
au5 men are regularly educated to
ate the best in emergencies of the
,pliances at band. *
With our railroads and oar linas and
machinery so plentiful every
herc, accidents of one sort and an
her are common. The most alarm
g cases to the layman in such mat
rg?certainly those which" arouse
.ost concern?are those causing a
ow of blood. The sight of blood is
f itself ghastly, and the flow, if pro
e, is likely to cause death in a few
Linutes. Mishaps which cause loss
\ blood are more likely to occur than
?y other class of acoident.
The general advice for suck emer
gencies?to stop the bleeding?is fa
miliar. There are two ways of cheok
bg the flow of blood?by direot pres
jure of finger or thumb on the open
ein or artery or by means of a pad
nd a firm bandage over the entire
round. The treatment depends up
n the location of the injury and its
eriousness, in bandaging a limb the
ressure should, of course, be applied
t a point between the heart and the
ound. The simplest plan if usually
place a snugly applied bandage be
ween the points.
IIf the wound, for example, be in the
and, the constriction should be ap
lied at the wrist or somewhere around
he arm above the elbow. Tho phil
isophy of suoh treatment is very sim
ple. The heart pumps the o'ood and
the pressure merely shuts on. the cur
To restore a fainting person, first
ay the body in an easy position on
:he back and loosen all the clothing
ibout the neck, chest and waist,
jrive him plenty of air and keep him
as quiet as possible. The practice of
flashing water in the face is an excel
ent one, as it tends to'excite respira
ion. The same effect is sometimes
kroduced by*gently slapping the front
pf the chest, or by applying smelling
alts to the nose. If more treatment
b required the physician is the only
one who can safely apply it.
A similar treatment should be fol?
iow. ? in the case of one : uffcringfroin
i fit. It is a mistake to chafe the
lands of the unconscious victim.
The custom of forcing salt down an
epileptic throat is a mistaken kind
ness. The best thing to do is to make
him as easy and comfortable as possi
ble and leave him to work out his fit
by himself. An epileptic, notwith
standing his apparent suffering, is al
ways unconscious during the attack.
The natural sleep whioh follows is the
best restorative. 1
The best treatment for a dog bite is
to control the circulation in the affect
ed part. It is quite safe, for exam
ple, to suck tho wound if it be done
iuuieduteiy. The more freely the
wound bleeds, if there be any poison
in it, the better. The Indians, when
bitten by snakes, it will he remember
ed, l'lunge the affected part in run
ning jrater to make it bleed as freely
The wound should be cauterized, but
until this can bo done by an expert
hand it is well to make every effort tc
The bite of a rattlesnake, whioh it
the most venomous we are likely tc
receive in this platitude, should bf
treated in a similar way. First gel
rid of the poison, if -possible.. It it
well to place a ligature about the arn
or leg, above the bite, until the lattei
can be cauterised.
The stings of bees, hornets and stm
dar insectB are scarcely serious onougl
to call for more than passing attea
lion. At worst the pain is likely. t<
pass off in a few minutes. The old
fashioned plan of applying a poultict
of mud t) the wound is evidently baset
on the indications to exclude air ant
cool the part. A light wash of am
monia or soda will give almost imzne
diate relief. The reason for this ap
pears to be due to the fact that thi
cause of the pain and swelling is ai
?cid injected by the ins?ot when i
bues. It ig claimed by some anthori
ties that this poison has the propert;
of dissolving the blood in the wouni
?nd thus making it easier for "the. in
Beet to imbibe it. By other soientifi
observers it is claimed thattho poisoi
Paralyzes the ooatB of the smaller vea
?eis and produces a local con^ostioi
favorable to a fuller meal than unde
ordinary conditions. In the case o
the mosquito bite, which has. beei
studied with muoh care of late, the:
>? evidently a combination of th<
phenomena. In the case of a fieri
stricken While .A.Wait
stings it is w*H. ?f?*r local applica
tions have been made, to give stimu
la:;ts and keep the patient as quiet
as possible, until the shock has passed
An immense amount cf whiskey has
been consumed with the great excuse
of curing bites or stings. In the great
majority of oases of snake bites in our
northern latitude the patients would
get along quite as well, perhaps bet
ter, without the stimulant.
Whisky, however, is an excellent
stimulant when the shock from the
anake poison is overwhelming and at
tended with severe prostration. The
bite of certain tropical snakes, for ex
ample, produces suoh a shook that
death is likely to follow before the
body regains its normal condition. It
is well to bear in mind that generally
a small dose of whisky, at regular in
tervals, is more effective than large,
Heat exhaustion is a comparatively
common acoident whioh every one
should be able to deal with effective
ly. The first thing to do is, naturally,
to get the victim of a sunstroke out of
the sao. The coolest and most quiet
place should be selected. Next try to
relieve the heat of the surface, which
is very great in such victims. The
perspiration is checked and the tem
perature is very high.
The patient should always lie on his
baok and in the most comfortable po
sition possible. Cold water should be
thrown on the bared head and chest,
and, if possible, cracked ice placed on
the head. A teappoonful of whiskey
should also be administered at inter
vals, care being taken not to give too
muoh. There is nothing more that
can be done with safety to the suffer
er until the physician arrives. It
must be borne in mind that a high de
gree of humidity is a leading contribu
tory cause of sunstroke, and extra
precautions should be taken against
accidents under the circumstances.
When a person who is either working
in the sun or indoors becomes dizzy,
faint, nauseated or suddenly feverish
from lick of perspiration he should
rest at once, havo cool applications to
the head and chest and be as free as
possible from all nervous excitement.
Often'this simple and timely treat
men t^m ay prevent a more serious seiz
ure, as the latter may come quite sud:
denly and without further warning.?

W. BOYD EVANS,
('audldete for Railroad Commissioner*
Jacked by Strong Men.
To the Voters of South Carolina :
No public question of recent years
has elicited more common interest in
South Carolina, and, indeed, in the
whole country, than that of the regu
lation and restriction of great corpo
rations and combinations within the
bouuds of the law.
Of these great corporations none
have so close a connection with
our great material welfare and inter
ests as do the railroads, as upon them
depends our intercourse and commerce
with the outer world. They are. in
deed, the very fibre of cur material
growth and development as a State and
a people. By the maintenance of just
and equitable laws as between our
people and the railroads?their public
servants?alone can these creatures of
the law be rendered most serviceable
to the State as a whole and assist in
the progressive march which the State
has begun, and at the same time yield
the best returns to those who own
In the lightjof these principles our
State has enacted laws providing for a
Kail road Commission, eomposed of
representative men, to be elected from
her people, whose duty is to regulato
and adjust the passenger and freight
rates of the respective roads within
the State with justice and impartiali
ty, assuring to the people equal rights
to all and special privileges to none.
That the spirit of this law may bo
fulfilled it is expedient and necessary
that this commission, in whose hands
lies more of our material welfare and
prosperity than in any other depart
ment of our government, should be
composed not only of men of the
highest integrity^ but of education,
experience and tried business capaci
ty; men who, by profession and train
ing, are able to cope with the finest
business and legal talent that money
can buy. '
Realizing as we do the necessity and
utility of the most vigorous adminis
tration of the affairs of this commis
sion and its establishment upon a sta
ble business basis, and, moreover,
that these great ends can only be ob
tained by maintaining the highest
standard in the personnel of its mem
bers, we, the undersigned citizens o?
Marion County, present for your at
tention the name of Mr. W. Boyd
Evans', a man hailing from our midst
and whom we believe possesses those
high attributes which will qualify
him to meet the obligations, of'the of
fice to which he aspires with the
greatest efficiency and honor. We
feel that a word setting out what man
ner of man he is will not be amiss.
W. Boyd Evans is the son of a gal
lant Confederate soldier. He is es
sentially a self-made man, for his fath
er lacking the means to bear the ex
pense of his college education, he met
those expenses himself, unaided, by
dint of hard work and untiring perse
While still at college, Mr. Evans
was elected against sharp competition
to fill the position of Secretary of the
Judioiary Committee of the Constitu
tional Convention of '95, and in that
positron exhibited such marked abili
ty as to have attraoted the attention
of Wm. H. Ellerbe, who afterwards,
becoming Govornor of the State, ap
pointed him as his Private Secretary.
Mr. Evans held this responsible po
sition with the utmost satisfaction to
his chief, and during the last desper
ate illness of Governor Ellerbe, cov
ering the greater part of a year, dur
ing which time the duties and respon
sibilities of that high office devolved
almost entirely upon his shoulders,
he acquitted himself with ability and
Daring the performance of these
arduous duties, however, he found
time to enter upon and complete the
study of law at the South Carolina
College, and has since the expiration
of his term practiced his profession in
Columbia. . ,
After the return of our Regiments
from the war with Spain, Mr. Evans,
discovering that these soldiers could,
under the National laws, olaim furth
er awards for their services, entered
claims for about fifty thousand dollars
with the War Department in Washing
ton for back pay to South Carolina
soldiers; of this he collected and
turned over to them upwards of twen
ty thousand dollars, which, but for
his sagucity and energy, wouid have
been lost to those brave fellows.
For a period of nearly eight years
Mr. Evans has been connected, in one
capacity or another, with the Legisla
tive Department of our Government,
actipg as Secretary to the various com
mittees of the two Houses.
His residence in Columbia, the
headquarters of the Raiiroad Commis
pion, renders Mr. Evans a peculiarly
fitting choice for the position to which
he aspires, inasmuch as it would give
the commission a resident member at
I headquarters, thus keeping the office
always accessible to those having bus
iness before it. Moreover, his resi
dence at headquarters would eliminate
L the matter of costs and expenses in
his case, whioh are incurred by all
, nou-residentg, and must be inourre !
by all of the other aspirants for th..
1 position, and which, by no means, it
an inconsiderable item of the State's
? harden. .
In the light of tho foots and reasons
enumerated above, wo have no hesita
tion in recommending, and do reoom
' mend pladly, the candidacy of Mr. W.

Corn Still Remains Slug.
La6t year was ono of tho greatest ,
and most destructive d> ."ught years j
over the entire corn belt that this !
country has a/er seen. The damage
to tho corn crop was very severe .and
of wide extc.it. and tho high prices
that have prevailed 6ince the crop
was matured is the result of tho short
age, but the final report of. tho Agri
cultural Department shows that corn
still holds the proud title of king of
the oereal crops, and refused to yield
that proud distinction at the behest of
the drought. Last year was the ban
ner wheat year in tho United States,
all previous re cords having baen bro
ken by a yield of 750,000,000 bushels,
and yet in that short corn crop it ex
ceeded *ho wheat crop over two bush
els to one, and the oat crop the same.
The oombiued bushels of wheat, oats,
rye and buckwheat only equaled the
oo?n orop. To money value the corn
crop was worth twice tho wheat crop,
an* ??heat, oats, barley, rye and buck
wheat, all told, only amounted in
money value to $835,000,000, wl..(e
the Corn crop alone was valued at
$921,000,000. Long live King Corn,
and may his shadow nevar grow less.
