fur it wernt much bigger then some
2ukeotors that I seen down there. It
was jest a little three sided consarn
sorted like a closet. I was on a trane
that didn't pay no 'tention to no sich
places. no more than if they hadn't a
bin there at awl. Cap'n Billy Smith
was the conduckter. the jolliest old
o-ent I even seen. He sed he had bin
on the rode forty nine yeer, and that
he had hauled too thirds of Lee and
Jacksons men over them rodes durin
the war. I learn as how Cap'n Smith
was won of the consciensiousest men
that ever rid a kyar, and that he wont
tote his wifes pickter in his pocket
without a pass. Ever station we got
to he wood have sumthin funny to
say about the place and the peeple.
umtimes he wood spell the name of
the station and he'd allers wind up
with "Everybody out fur this place?
No re-sponse to the contrary." Then
everybody wood laff fit to kill-with
won or two exceptins.
There was two fine lookin gals set
tin close to me and I noticed that won
of 'em had a pug nose and turned it
up considerable ever time that con
duekter cum around. I precludid to
soun her, and sed: "I declar I'll
hate to get off this trane; when I got
on my hart was hevy with the thought
of sich a long lonesum travel, but the
conduckter is so jolly and amusin
that I am a injoyin myself immense
ble. He's a sure cure for the bluze.'
"I think he is a perfect nusance
he is two old."
I looked at her long and hard be
fore I ansered:
"Yung lady,,I haint never yet seen
a purson that was two old in yeers,
but I've seen a good men yung pee
ple that was two yung in wisdim."
ut law, sakes! that .conduckter got
e sweetest kind of a revenge on
and I eudn 't help but think that
ody had told him what she sed.
wernt long before he cum back
ew the kyar, and he seen a little
about ten or twelve yeers old set
jest befor them gals, and he did
't 'peer to no where to place him, so

in eleer distinct tones: "Madam,

I hadn't told 'em when to look fur

DYSPEPSIA AND DESTINY.
Men Who Neglected their Bodies
Failed When Success was
Man has a machine, an apparatus
of delicate adjustment, but of great
power-his. body--but too often he
neglects to use it. He lets it rest in (
ease. or slumber~ in sloth. He coddles
it. He arrays it in fine linen and
purple, bodizens it with jewels and
pampers it with indigestible foods,
often sparing it the ardauous labor of
mastication. Hg permits it to sit ]
awkwardly with crossed legs or stoop
ed shoulders, as if the trunk was too
fragle to hold up its limbs, or the '
weight of the atmosphere was an At
las load for its back.
And what reward hath the mind for
this indulgence granted the sybarite
flesh? Ingratitude and complaining,
accompanied by acueastions. The
poor, debeilitated muscles and nerves
justly charge that the overseer mind
has been neglectful of its duties, and,
despising so weak and ignorant a
foreman, desert or rebel, and leave
their should-be boss impotent to carry
out the true work of a man.
The marvellous mind of Alexander,
which ruled a world, had no disci
pline for its body after it became ae
quainted with Oriental pomp and sen
suosness, and disregarded the stal
wart virillity with which in other
days it tamed Bucephalus.
Napoleon, busy with rearranging
the map of Europe, did not properlyj
masticate his chicken a la Marengo,
and allo ved it to pass in the rough4
into the spoiled ohild of a stomach,
trusting to the liver-a weak one in
herited from his father--to completeI
the digestive process or compensate
for the lack of mastication.
Probably the great disaster of Leip
zig was due to his careless eating.
Voltaire has said that the fate of
a nation often depended on the good 4
or bad digestion of a prime minister,
and Motely declares that the gout of
Cfharles V. changed the destines of
Balzac, incomparable novelist, died
at 50 when he had planned for a life
of rural rest, died because he allowed
the craving stomach to have coffee
at all hours and in great quantities,
and while his mind sauntered in all
the highways, lanes and alleys of hu
man society, his body, eabined in a
monk's robe, took no exercise, but(
stuck to a garret, except when a
sheriff's approach made fight a thing
desired by the agile mind.
In that delightful eassay, ''Saints
and Their Bodies,'' Col. Higginson
says: ''Three of the four Greek fath-i
ers ruined their health early and were
invalids for the rest of their days.
Three only of the whole eight were
able-bodied men-Ambrose, Augus
tine and Athansius-and the perman
ent influence of these three has been
far greater than that of all the others

PROSPERITY, S. C.
The First Cough of the season,
* Even though not severe, has a tendency to irritate the sensi
tive membranes of the throat and delicate bronchial tubes.
Coughs then come easy all winter, every time you take the
$ slightest cold. Cure the first cough before it has a cbuce to
set up an inflamation in thedelicate capillary air tub of the
lungs. The best remedy is QICK RELIEF COUGH
SYRUP. It at once gets right at the seat of trouble and re
moves the cause. It is free from Morphine and is as safe for
a child as for an adult. 25 cents at
