WILL OBSERVE THANKSGIVING
The Herald and News will this 1
year observe Thaaksgiving day and!
in order to do so we will print and
mail the paper Wednesday night.
Advertisers will please bear this in
mind. We will make changes or in
sert new ads up to late Wednesday
MAIL CARS ABOUT READY.
In talking with a gentleman in po
,sition to know we have the assur
ance that the mail ears for addi
tional mail service on the Southern
between Gohimbia and Greenville
have been about completed. In fact
one is finished and t'he other nearly
so. It will be recalled that the gov
ernment has already issued the or
der to put the postal service on
trains 18 and 19 and that the only
delay is caused by the failure of the
railroad to furnish the cars.
The policy of Supt. R. E. Simpson
is to put in service only the very
best equipment and while he might
- have had on hand some old ears
when the order was first issued he
declined to do so and placed an or
der in the shops for two new and
modern and uptodate mail ears.
These, as stated, are about complet
ed and the service will be put on in
a very short time.
We are satisfied that every one
will be satisfied with the delay when
the facts are known and will prefer
first class eqgipment even though it
has caused a slight delay.
AS TO IMMIGRATION.
We publish elsewhere an inrter
view and statement from Mr. J. H.
Patten who is secretary of the Im
migration Restrietion league. This
is a very live question before the
people of this state at this time and
what Mr. Patten has to say will no
douibt, be read with interest. He en
dorses the action of Mr. Watson and
* seems to think that the only way to
avoid ,undesirable immigrants is to
have their'selection under the dii-ee
tion of the state agent.
'The Herald and News has strong
conviction that we should not solicit
immigrants at all, because when we
send out 'agents from the state or in
any way to solicit immigrants* we
are ljkely- to get a large proporthon
of the unidesiralbles. If we are not
mistaken a 'Sarde portion of those
who came over on the Wittekind ap
ply to this class.
'As we see this question at this
time there is no reason why a de
partmnent such as we have in this
state may not be be:.eficial to t'he
state in advertising our advantages
and our resources and in giving
correst information in regard to
them and thus be able to secure that
class -who are seeking homes in the
best se'ction of this country. If,
*. ho-wever, a steamship line is opened
to our poits and the immigrants are
to be solicited, 'we are sure to have a
e lot of undersirables dumped on 'our
shores. If, 'however. our many ad
* vantages are properly and judicious
ly advertispd those who have
* money to invest and who are seek
ing Shomes with the advantage we
have to offer will be att.racted here
* of their own volition and coming in
-this way will make desirable citizens.
=We desire to endorse the senti
- mernt expressed by Gov. Heyward in
-his interview in Washington on con
ditions in South Carolina. It is to
be hoped that the approaching ses
sion of the legislature will not have
any radical legislation to propose.
As to railroads we are satidfed
that the traveling public, as Gov.
Heyavard says, would much prefer
good equipment and safety to any
reduction in passenger rates. We
are reliably informed that at least
someot'thelarge raihvy opoa
tionls have been giving special at
tention to imnprov.ed service, better
eguipment,. and improved road-bed
in South Carolina. rather more than
in most other states. This is due,
no doubt, in large measure to the
* fact that our legislature was not dis
posed towards any revolutionary leg
islation. We believe that this course
will be pursued at the next session
of the legislature and that the rail
roads will be assured that what we
want is good service.
The cotton picking season is
drawing to a close, and bridge whist
will be resumed as the leadingr
amusement in South 'Carolina af em)

WASPS AS r-AP . . ....RS.
Wonders of a Nest-Havoc Ly L
Insects-Ways to Destroy.
It is the last l-ving act of the com
mon wasps in every colony to elect a
certain numher of their lady fellows
a:id g,o through the process of "feed
ing them up." for a wasp queen
earns that title simple by reason of
her size. and not because of any
claim to astistocratic descent. This
feeding lasts the queen wasps all the
winter through. during which time
they hibernate in some warm corner
out of the way of frost and snow.
says the Pall Mall Gazette.
About March they come forth once
more and proceed to look about for
a nesting place. Having chbsen a
site for this-gen.erally in a hollow
tree or in some sheltered and sunny
corner among the dry rubbish-*the
queen forms a cocoon of "Wasp pa
per," wherein she constructs about
a doken cells and lays an egg in each.
In due time the eggs become grubs,
and these are fed assiduously by the
queen mother until they completely
fill the cell. The latter is then seal
ed up, and in a few diays each grub,
which meanwhile has developed
wings and legs, and changed from
white to yellow-and-blac, emerges
as a grown-up wasp.
'The real work of nest building now
beins. and the whole party go off
together in search of a convenient
hole in the ground for the .permanent
headquarters. This, at least, is
what the common wasp does. There
are several varieties in Great Britain,
and some of them build on the branch
of a tree or in the grass of a bank.
The little family works very hard to
manufacture the material of which
the nest is made-a wonderful sub
stance' of the texture of paper pulp
ed up from the bark of trees in the
wasps' mouths. The wasp was mak
inZ paper from wood pulp for cen
turies before man thought of it ! This
nest prc.per contains a large amount
of "comb" and in each cell the queen
lays an egg.
Things now proceed apace, the
feeding of the grubs and sealing them
up in their cells going on as before,
but the queen is now assisted in her
labors by her dozen or so original sub
jects, and the others join in the work
as they hateh ont. As the summer
advances the nest gets . stronger in
numbers ntil the very end of the
season, and 1$6in-some of the grubs
never see the light. A' wasps' nest
may contain as many as 10,000 wasps,
but an, average nest would be about
ialf that number.,
~Wasps are such hard-wvorking little
creatures that it seems a sin to de
stroy their wonderful labor, for bb-e
nest .is a triumph of . architectual
skill. At the same time, they com
mit such havoc in oretards and are
so trouble:some everywhere where
food or drink is to be found that ev
ery man's hand,.is against them. The.y
sel'dom sting unless molested or .touch
ed by accident.
A certain amount of good is done
by wasps in kill.ing noxious insects.
eipecially house flies, but this one
wood aet is quite overbalanced by
their many deeds of evil. All sorts
of. methods are adopt-ed, therefore, to
destroy them at night time in their
nests, but the very best plan of all is
to procure some cyanide of potassium
(a deadly poison) from a chemist,
an'd place a teaspoonful within the
bole that leads to the nest, afterward
sealing the entrance with a sod of
turf. Next morninbg egry wasp will
be dead, and the nest may be dug out
and destroyed, brood comb and all.

DOCTOR THE ITCH WHERE THE
Don't Dose the Stomach to Cure Ecze
ma and Other Skin Dis
Those afflicted with Eczema, psor
iasis, salt rheum, or other skin dis
eases of a similar nature, should nev
er dose the stomach to rid themsel
ves of the terrible itch. They should
doctor the itch where the itch is
cure the skia through the skin, not
through the stomach.
Eczema and other diseases of a kin
dred kind are skin diseases-not
blood diseases. Science has shown
that Eczema is caused by germs in
the skin, and that the disease can b>
eradicated only by killing the germs,
Dr. -Decatur D. Dennis was one of
the first ,physicians to follow out:'the
germ theory in skin diseases. Then
he discovered that by mixing oil. of
wintergreen with o,ther sootlius
agents he had a liquid preser4pior
which killed 'the germs hand ecired
the awful itch, leaving the skin white
and smooth. Since that" time this D.
D. D. Prescription has ibeen the stan
dard remedy for skin diseases, just
as D. D. D. soap is the standard high~
grade skin soap.
The first few drops of D. D. D.
give instant relief from the terrible
itch and from the frightful bnrning
af the diseased skin. So reliable is
this D. D. D. remedy Vha.t hundreds
of physicians presc.ribe it. It is a
wash as thin as water and as mild
and as pure, which is applied to t-he
diseased portion of the skin.
Mrs. Frances Richmond af Ul1ton,
Trimble'. county, Kentucky, writes:
''My little girl's fingers were sore
almost to the bone from Eczema. I
usedpart of the sample bottle af D.
D. D. Prescription received from you
and now they are well. It is a won
derful ski:2 remedy.''
We carefully investigated this D.
D. D. Preseription before recommend
