The correspondent thinks, thoug

etting the people understand the sit

Biennial sessions is a Constitution
Lmendment that was passed at the li

Lmendment provides that after ti
egislative session of 1906 the Legislv

Tbe Constitution of South CaroLin
rticle I., Section 3, advises that "TlI
eneral Assembly ought frequently 1
assemble for the redress of grievancE
nd for making new laws, as the con
non good may require.",
The article and section of the Const

nany other good reasons why a depar
tre of the State fron annual sessions (
ts Legislature should never be vote
or. for two years is a long time,
ight be, to have to submit to a grie
us legislative wrong and injustice.
The supporters of biennial session
laim that it will be a very economic
easure and will save to the taxpayei
aany thousands of dollars a year.
If we could be assured that extra se
ions of the Legislature would never b
onvened, then we might believe tha
iennial sessions of the Legislatut
ould prove financially beneficial 1
he taxpayers of South Carolina. Unt
ce are assured of this fact we will sti

Georgia, the Empire State of tt
south, has been referred to as a mod
tate for biennial legislative session
nd its action one worthy of adoptior
reorgia can no longer be pointed out a
State of biennial legislative session
Dr biennial sessions expired in Georgi
a the month of July orAugust, 190:
nd in July, 1904., we find the legislativ
dy of the "model State" of Georgi

We believe the three members to th
louse of Representatives from ClareE
on in the sessions of 1899 and 39(
oted against biennial sessions. Ho

The question we have been touchin
is one that is to be decided by thn

The correspondent further says
The other question on which thn
iasses ought to be informed and o
hich there should be an expression<
pinion on the part of all candidates fc
he General Assembly, whether for thn
ouse- or Senate, is upon the Brice Di:
Briefly stated, the "Brice Dispensar
'ill " provides. " That when a peopl
o longer wanted the dispensary sy:
em, or it was a jeopardy to the peac
nd good order, they could vote it or
f the county. If upon a vote of thn
eople the dispensary was no longe
;anted, then the machinery was pr<
ided in the Act for its removaL Tho,

'he fight will no doubt be again mad
t the next session of the General A
embly, and every member of the Ger
ral Assembly ought, before the pe<
le, to say how he stands upon th:
easure, and whether he thinks eac
ounty ought to regulate its own liquc
fairs. or whether it ought to be
tate matter. and what applies to on
ounty must apply to all, and if the dii
ensaries be in vogue in one count
bey must be forced on every othe
ou'nty in the State, and that the ste
prohibition that was promised ca
ever be taken, unless the people sto
uying liqucr, as the dispensaries onc
ceing opened are never to be closed.
"The bill wa cleverly amended by th
riends of the dispensary so as to part
'ze it and practically make it a den
tter. The law as passed now says if
ounty is disgusted with the dispensar
ad no longer wants it for any reasot
can vote it out of the county, bun
ith a big B if it no longer wants thn
ispensary it must pay a stated tax upo
1 property in the county for that pri~
Lege. This tax, it is allegerd, is for thn
urpose of maintaining the constabi
iry force in the county after the di
ensary is removed, it was a cleve
iee of- legislation on the part of th
ispensary advocates. They argue
hat without this tax feature, if comn
ies could vote the dispensaries out<
heir borders, it would be the means<
reaking the backbone of the dispet

ithout paying a special tax for tbn

COLD STORAGE RATS.
Perfectly at Home In a Temperature
Below the Zero Mark.
When cold storage was first intro
duced into this country the chilly stor
age rooms were absolutely free from
rats and mice. The temperature was
kept considerably below the freezing
point, and in the cold surroundings rats
and mice were unable to live.
In time, 'however, the rich stores
packed away there proved too tempt
ing for thieving rodents. and they be
gan to make inroads into the cold stor
age rooms, at first paying a hurried
call and as soon as they had taken a
'ew nibbles rushing with a shiver out
into warmer places.
Gradually, however, these visits were
lengthened and became more frequent,
ot without considerable mortality
among the rats, but in the end there
grew into being what is known as the
"cold storage rat" This animal has
neither tail nor ears, both having been
frozen for his ancestors, resulting In
their total loss to the families of the
rst intrepid pirates of cold storage.
These earless and tailless cold storage
rats are perfectly at home in a temper
ature below the zero m#rk. This, I
think, is one of the most striking ex
imples of how the animal kingdom In
the wise economy of nature can adapt
Itself to the most severe surroundings.
They Were First suggested In' 1G7
by Daniel Defoe.
Primitive savings banks were bfound
ed at Hamburg in 1778 and at Berne
in 1787, the idea having been suggested
by Daniel Defoe in 1097. Francis Mas
seres proposed in 1771 to confer upon
the ratepayers of any English parish
powers to receive and invest savings
and to grant deferred annuities, but a
bill to this effect failed to pass through
parliament. The first practical at
tempts were on a small and tentative
scale. A children's bank was started
by Mrs. Priscilla Wakefield at Totten
iam in 1798.
The Rev. J. Smith of Andover, with
two friends, agreed in 1790 to receive
small sums from his parishioners dur
ing the summer, to be returned with a
3ne-third bounty at Christmas, a lib
eral offer which was eagerly embraced.
The title of "Father of Savings
Banks" has been given, however, to the
Etev. H. Duncan of Ruthwell, Dum
rriesshire, who established a saarings
bank in 1810 on so successful a basis
that in four years it possessed an accU
mulated fund of E,160.
Acts to encourage savings banks in
England and Ireland were passed in
L817 and were extended to Scotlandlin

Buckland reckoned 'the roe of a half

FAT ON A FOWL.
It 14 Not So Good a Thing as Some
"When I see men or women looking R
for nothing but fat on a fowl," said a
marketinan, "I don't envy them their
dinner. There is a layer of- fat under
neath the skin when poultry is unduly
fattened, and in the cooking this over
heated fat saturates the meat, and de
eate stomachs have a hard tussle. This 0
is why lots of people can't eat ducks
and geese at all. These overfattened
fowls arc in reality more expensive
and less easily digested, there being
much less lean meat in proportion to
the fat. Most of my customers are now
willing to pay what a good turkey is
worth, understanding the difference.
What is the difference? Why, there
are a few rules that must be observed.
For at least six days before killing
barnyard fowls must be cooped, not
huddled, have a good, clean space
and be well fed on corn for at least
five days. Then for twenty-four hours
before killing they should be fed on
skimmed milk or soft boiled rice. The
night before the killing the turkey
must have plenty of water, but no ~
food, which leaves the crop empty, the
intestines clean, the dark meat quite
light, and gives a flavor as different as 0
possible from the offensive flavor that
is likely to impregnate the common
fowl killed in the common way. The
flesh of all animals is flavored by their
food. This accounts for the delicious -
flavor of the canvasback and redhead
ducks. Both eat of the wild celery at
the water's edge, the former taking the
roots, the latter the tops."-Philadel- 4

Th e Camel .Raid.
Camels in Somnaliland are kept in
great herds sometimes numbering S0,
000. Such numbers involve wide areas
for grazing and consequent distances
from the few places where water may
be found. The ponies used by the So
mali can also manage without drink for e
three or four days and when employed I
for herding have, like their masters, I
only camels' milk to quench their
thirst These big herds offer, of course,
a tremendous temptation to the raider,
as many as 10,000 camels being taken
at a time, and the excitement of driv
ing off such a haul .at full gallop for
forty or fifty miles, with the exasperat

Talismans In War.
it was not at all unusual for soldiers
and others who were exposed to dan

tection. A story which gained credence
is told of a soldier in the time of the
Prince of Orange. H~e was a Spanish
prisoner, and on being condemned to
be shot it was found that he was in
vulnerable. The soldiers stripped him
to see what kind of armor he wore,
but it was discovered that he was not
protected in that way, but an amulet
on which was the figure of a lamb was
found on his person. This was taken
away from him, and the shots took ef

shelves the inmates place whatever

to aid escaped prisoners, the shelves
being placed at that height so as to
prevent dogs from getting at the food.

Th 11Origin of Trusts.
The trusts are developed by a g.,adual concentration of sev
eral branches of industries or business, previously conducted by
several individuals or business concerns, each one in active com
petition with his neighbor; each one trying to please the public
in every possible way; by selling at small profits, attending to
the wants of the people in an intelligent manner; knowing his
eustomers personally, the merchant can treat them right.
Now some people believe that a trust manufacturer or mer
cautile concern (or department store as some call it) can compete
and sell cheaper than an independent merchant, and there is
where they are mistaken, believing the assertion of the trust,
thatr by concentrating many branches of business -under one
management their expenses are reduced and they can sell
cheaper, but if you consider that they have to hire men and 0
women for everything done and pay for a thousand things NOT
DONE, you will find that the man rinning his own business not
having to pay large salaries for managers, clerks, etc., and at
tending to every detail himself, can outsell any trust on the face
of the earth, and no department store can touch him.
Look out for trusts and do your business with the plain man

ice Cream Freezers.
Ice cream freezers have not always been the marvelous machines 2
that they are today. In former times the freezing of cream, sherbets, .
water ices, etc., was accomplished with no end of labor and expense. .
so much so that the serving of these delightful dishes was looked a
upon as quite an event in the family circle, and on many occasions a
parental authority had to be asserted to keep the younger members 3
of the family within bounds.
Today, with cheap ice and persect freezers nothing is more com
mon than the serving of frozen dishes which not only appeal to our :
sense of taste, but the cheapness by which they can be made render -
them them dessirable.
Foremost among the Freezers of today is the "Arctic," which :
will in from seven to ten minutes freeze to uniform hardness, cream :
of even grain and perfect smoothness. They are made in sizes from _
one to ten quarts and are strong and durable in every way. Booklet Z
accompanies each freezer which tells how to make all kinds of nice
things at small cost.
PERFECTION OIL STOVES & OVENS.
Oil Stoves were at one time given up as useless, owing to the dis
aereeable odor from burning oil,.but since the BLUE FLAME OIL
STOVE was brought out their use has been revived and are again
becoming quite popular. They are absolutely safe and reliable, giv
ing a quick heat and little cost and are the very thing for warm. The
combustion of the oil is perfect and by turning off the valve all loose ...
oil is consumed before the fire is extinguishep. Ladies who are using
them are delighted and speak of them in the highest praise. -We,
have an excellent stock of these, with one and two burners.
SOIEEN DOORS AND WINDoWS. v
Our Screen Doors and Windows give comfort wherever they are
placed. We have all the desirable sizes.
Our JEWEL STOVES are the most beautiful things of the kind
ever shown here. Ornament yonr kitchen with one and see how
much better care will be taken of it than of an ordinary stove.
