Brown eyea are due to a brown pig

are due to r hick of such pigment.

What Is education? Emersion says
that the greatest teacher Is. not the
teacher who supplies the pupil with
the most facts, but tbe one in whose
presence the pupil becomes a better
person. The great secret of educa
tlon lies in respecting the wants of
the pupil It Is not for us to say what
another shall know or even do. That
part of the game of life is chosen and
foreordained and the pupil alone holds
tho key to his own needs Emerson
begs us to respect the child He re
iterates his pica to respect and wait
and see tl)? new product of nature
develop We are not to be ioo much
the pupil's parent We are not to be
too often in his solitude. We are to
let him alone Give the pupil an op
portunity to exercise and express his
ivery faculty, and then?hands off!

The mild mannered man was so
well Informed about past, present aud
future dates of suffragists' meetings
that some one ventured the opinion
that his wtfi must be one of tbe chief
supporters of the cause.
"You're away off there," said an
other. "That chap Isn't even mar
ried. He's a hotel clerk, and has to
add suffragist meetings to his church,
theater and political calendar for the
benefit of women travelers. Out-ol
town women who want to be up with
the procession place those meetings at
the bead of New York's attractions.
They haven't time to look up the
dates for themselves, bo tho accom

EXPERIMENT A SUCCESS.
Planting Tea in Sp?th Carolina High
The government's experiments in
tea farming this year were highly sat
isfactory to the department of agri
culture officials. On the 10*0 acres in
South Carolina where the bureau of
plant industry is conducting the work
there were produced this year about
12,000 pounds of tea worth fully $1
a pound. While this was not a record
yield, the season having been too dry
for that, there would have been a rec
rd, it was confidently declared by Dr.
Roney W. True, in charge of the work
if conditions had been favorable.
With the invention this year of a
tea plant pruning machine, which
worked successfully, only one pro
cess in tea growing now must be done
by hand, that Is the picking. The in
creased demand in the southern
states for this American tea has pro
duced a market for all of it within
a limited distance from the place
where it is raised.
Something New for Educational Day
at the County Fair.
In addition to the different prizes
already offered to the (Public Schools
of the County, the Fair Management
has decided to offer and present to
the school making the largest num
ber of points in all the different ev
ents, a .beautiful banner with the
following wording, "Presented by the
Orange'burg County Fair for Excel
lence in School Work and Athletics."
This banner is to be held by the
school winning same for a period of
one year, and then will be again
contested for by the schools at the
the next county Fair on Educational
Day, which will be an annual event.
All of the Schools will please take
notice. This banner will be present
ed to the winning school after the
exercises are over, on the athletic
field. It remains to be seen which
school will be the victor, and take
back with them to their school this
beautiful banner, as a reward for
their good school work, and achieve*
I ments on the Athletic Field.
Names for "Good Friday."
Perhaps no Christian festival has so
many names as Good Friday. Our
Anglo-Saxon and Danish forefathers
called it "Lonjj Friday," in allusion
to the length of the day's services and
fasting: in franee it is "Holy Friday;"
in Germany either "Stiller Freitag"
'Quiet Friday) or "Charfrpiiag," in al
lusion perhaps to the exhibition of the
crucifix for adoration afi:er being
veiled all through LtnL In the Greek
church it has been known at various
times as "The Pascha of the CroBs,"
"The Preparation, "The Redemption'
and "The Day of the Cross," antf. to
these names the Latins have added
"The Day of the Lord'B Passion," "The
? Sixth Holy Day of the Pascha," and
many others. "Good Friday" seems
to be peculiar to the English lan
Faith in Their Cause.
If they are thrice armed who have
their quarrel just, then ladies' tailors
must be the most righteous persons
wao ever irvited a lawsuit, for they
have confidence enough in iheir own
cause to employ women lawyers. At
a meeting of law cchooi graduates
who have worked up a lucrative prac
tice, four women declared that their
first clients were tailors.
"A iadlcs' tailor who does good work
pr ''ers a woman lawyer," said one.
"She has a knowledge of clothes that
no mere man can ever hupe to ac
quire, and If the ^own fought over is
a half-way decent piece of workman
ship she will be able to convince a
judge and jury of Its merits every
time. Then, there Is 6omethlDg to tie
gained In the advertising line, always
provided, of course, that the tailor Is
worthy of patronage, for the lawyer
will give him an order for her own
Buit aud recommend him to friends."
French Lawyers Went on Strike.
Over 300 years ago one of the most
unusual strikes ever recorded took
place in Paris, when ail the lawyers
walked opt, so to speak. A law or
ordonnance was Issued and promul
gated by the French king. Henry III.,
ordering all lawyers tu sign their
pleadings and to state the amount
they were charging their clients for
their services. This was done so
that the lawyers could' be properly and
sufficiently taxed on their income The
lawyers objected, and the strike, caus
ing an entire stay of judicial proceed
ings, followed Peace was restored
by the non-enforcement .of the ordoD
nance, \hcugh it was not repealed.

The Man Who Made First Moving
'Considerable discussion has been
going on for some time past as to
who originated the cinema. Many
claimants to the distinction have
ccme forward, but after careful in
vestigation it would appear that the
'honor really belongs to an English
man, Edward Mi'.ybrldge, who emi
grated from -Kingston-Thames in
the 'forties, and settled in California
where later on he obtained an ap
pointment as phctographic surveyor
of the Pacific Coast.
The first moving picture which he
produced was really the outcome of
a wager made between the Governor
of California (Leland Standford) and
a friend as to wether a horse ever
has fonr legs off the ground at the
same moment whi le running.' Muy
bidge was asked to settle the point.
He placed twenty-four cameras in a
line to cover each movement of the
horse and rider, :he camera-shutters
being moved by connecting-pieces of
string whJich the animal broke as he
passed. The 'result was a series of
pictures showing each movement of
the horse. It settled the argument,
for Muybridge was able to show that,
except when jumping, the horse nev
er had all his feet off the ground at
This experiment caused Muybridge
to think what an interesting thing
it would be to present: the photos in
motion. To do :his he copied the
method made familiar to many in the
zoetrope. The toy was a pasteboard
cylinder, with slits in the upper sec
tion, and when it revolved rapidly
it produced drawings apparently in
To reproduce the effect upon a
screen, using photographs, was a
mechanical feat which was finally
conquered, the movements of the
horse being shown, but no back
This was before the introduction
of the flexible film for the camera,
and before rapid photography had
been developed. Muybridge lived to
see the wonderful moving picture of
to-day, and died in 1904 at his home
