dTAR HEEL vs DIXIE.
Read and Judge:
In view of the recent advertising on the subject of
Tar Heel and Dixie blankets, we deem it but just to our
selves that we should publish the following letter from
the manufacturers, which ought to settle the matter, and
does, so far as we are concerned, as it confirms practically
every statement made by us.

Elkin, North Carolina.
Dezember 12, 1902.
Messrs. O'Donnell & Co., Sumter, S. C.
Gentlemen: Replying to your kind favor of recent
date, we beg to state that our -No. 200 blanket, which we
have been selling you ticketed Tar Heel, is a better blan
ket and costs us considerably more per pound than the Z
No. 300 blanket ticketed Dixie, which we sold Messrs. .
Schwartz Bros. We manufacture blankets varying in
price from 45 to 80 cents per pound. and No. 200 is next to
the best grade we make. Blankets are graded by quality
ot stock and not by weight, for all the grades we make
weigh the same in 10-4. 11-4 and 12-4. You are one of Z
our oldest customers. and we have always given you the
same prices that we get from the iaLgest Eastern jobbing
houses. If you desire some of the cheaper grades we
shall be pleased to ship you.
Thanking you for past favors and soliciting your fur
ther valued orders, we are

CHATHA-M MF5. CO.
P. S.-Your valued favor of some days since would
have received earlier attention but for the absence of the
writer We trust that the above will be satisfactory and
that our delay has not seriously inconvenienced you.
With kind regards, I am

Examples Found In the Parks and
Open Squares of Paris.
There is no better phice to study
French frugality than in the parks
and open squarLs osf Paris. Go to one
of the secoudhand fairs held on the
outer boulevards. What in other coun
tries would be cast aside as useless is
here exposed for sale, having been
earefully sorted over by ragpickers,
whose sole support is the rubbish
which you see-broken china, bits of
glass, pieces of stone, old nails, old
pots and pans, old shoes, old combs 0
:and brushes. Does a woman need a
cup? IIas she broken a saucer? For 2
cents she can replace them. Is her lock
broken, her key lost? Dehold a thou- p
sand from which to choose. The poor
students may find their books, mothers
their children's shoes. says Donohoe's
Each house in Paris is provided by t
the city with a large box. Into this the a
servants throw all that is not needed
by the family, whether of food or rai
ment. Every morning the chiffoniers
or ragpickers are privileged to search
through these boxes before the con- t
tents are carted by the city to distant
fields, where the refuse Is employed in t!
fertilizing the soil. From the homes of
the wealthy the poor receive many ar- b
ticles of real value. Fifty thousand
ragpickers, say the statistics, realize ti
$10,000 daily from their pickings.
English of Long Ago.
The ng's English has changed as 0
kings have come and gone, says the
St. James Gazette. Here is a passage
from the record of a crowning of-long
ago: "The Cardinall, as Archebishoppe
of Caunterbure, showing the king to the
people at the iiij parties of the said pul- P
pitt, shall say in this wise, 'Sirs, I here
present Henry (true) and rightful, and tl
undoubted enheritour by the lawes of
God and man to the ceroune and roiall
dignite of England, with all things
thereunto ennexed and apperteyning,
electe, chosen and required by all three
estats of the same land to tak yppon
him the said 'coroune and roiall dignite,
whereupon ye shall vnderstand that
this daie is prefixed and appoynted by
all the piers of this land for the conse
crasion, envnecion and coronacion of
the said most excellent Prince Henry; n
will ye, sirs, at this tyme geve your P
willes and essentes to the same conse
cracion, enuvnccion and coronacion? fi
Whereupon the peple shall saie, with a C(
greate voice, 'Ye, Ye. So be hit. King
Henry! King Henry!'" L

Chinese Duplicity. bi
A south sea islander said of his race,
"As soon as we open our mouths a lie m
s born." The Chinese acknowledge m
without shame the same of themselves. h<
tmay be t ue among western nations
that "the affairs of life hinge upon con- le
fidence," but in the east, and especially v4
in China, they hinge upon suspicion. tl
There are few Chinese who attach any
importance to keeping an engagement le
Most of them are like the man who, I
being accused of having broken his
promise, replied that it was of no con
sequence, as he could make anofher
just as good. The Chinese say that S
one should never refuse a request in an t
abrupt manner; on the contrary, he s
should grant it in form, although with s
no intention to do so in substance. "Put
him off till tomorrow and then until
another tomorrow. Thus you comfort
his heart," they say. 'r

er the writer's death. "I bought it," bc
said the author of "Vathek." "to have at

through Lausanne." There were few in
rarities in the collection, but most of to
the authors were in the best obtain
able editions and in perfect condition-- [u
the fastidiious Gibbon was incapable of gr
behaving disirespectfully to a book. For :
six weeks Beckford reveled in his pur- it
chase and read himself nearly blind. w
lHe soon tired of his books, however, liB

the treasure by promptly selling it. cc
Right and Left Cigars. it
It Is not always because a cigar is |
badly made that the wrapper curls up (0
and works off, says the Tobacco Work- tri
er. It is often because a right handed or
man Is smoking a left handed cigar. A wi
"left handed cigar" is one rolled by the
maker's left hand, for all cigar makers ic:
must be ambidextrous. A piece of to- p1
bacco for the wrapper is cut on the 10
bias and is rolled from left to right on M
the filler. The other piece for reasons se
of economy is then used and must be th
rolled the opposite way by the opera- th
tor's other hand. Hence a smoker who
holds a cigar in his right hand, some- to
times twisting it about, rubs the wrap- as
per the wrong way and loosens it.

The Value of a Struggle.
It is a curious fact in the history of
nations that only those which have had
to struggle the hardest for an exist
ence have been highly successful. As
a rule the same thing is true of men.
One would think that it would be a
great relief to have the bread and but
ter problem solved by one's ancestors
e so that one might devote all his eper
Li gies and time to the development of
the mental and spiritual faculties. But
this is contrary to the verdict of his
tory and the daily experience of the
world. The strugglers, those born to a
heritage of poverty and toil and not
those reared in the lap of fortune,
have, with a few exceptions, been the
0 leaders of civilization, the giants of
13 Clubs. Cabs and Gout.
a A physician talking to a reporter of
f a New York paper asserted recently
r that gout is rapidly increasing in that
n city as a disease prevalent among the
I- wealthy classes, the increase being al
.. together out of proportion to the
t- growth of poplation. He claims that
1. this is largely attributable to the in
n crease of clubs, fashionable restau
t rants and cafes and also to the gen
. eral use of cabs, even when the dis
y tance frbm the club to the home is
e only a few blocks. If people would
take more active exercise in the open
e air, they would run less risk from
,v heavy meals. He says that rich foods
e are more responsible for gout than
e wine, although practically the two
s usually go together.
