The fact that S. S. S. is a purely vegeable preparation, containing not
the slightest trace of mineral in any form, has been one of the strongest
points in its favor during its forty years of existence. It is recognized
everywhere not only as the best of all blood purifiers, but the one medicine
that can be taken with absolute safety by the youngest child or the oldest
member of the family. Next in importance to removing the cause of any
disease is the condition in which the system is left after a course of medical
treatment. Medicines containing mercury, potash or other strong mineral
ingredients often do permanent injury by.eating out the delicate lining and
tissues of the storach, producing chronic dyspepsia, unfavorably affecting
the bowels and so damaging the system that even if the original cause of
the disease has been removed, it is left in
such a deranged and weakened condition that $1000 REWARD
the health is permanently impaired. S. S.-S.
enjoys the distinction of being the only blood IF NOT PURELY
medicine on. the market that does not contain
a mineral property in some form. Being made V E C E T A L E
entirely of roots, herbs and barks it is absolutely
harmless to any part of the system, and while curing disease adds strength
and health to every part of the body. S. S. S. removes all poisons, freshens
and purifies the blood and gives better and more lasting results than any
other blood medicine. S. S. S. is the very best treatment for Rheumatism
Catarrh, Scrofula. Sores and Ulcers, Skin Diseases, Contagious Blood Poison
and all troubles due to an impure or poisoned blood supply. Besides being
the King of blood purifiers S. S. S. is the best and most invigorating of all
tcnics. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.
Upon Entering. .
This our tenth year of business life in Manning, we wish to thank our
patrons of the town and county for the splendid support given us in the
past. and the deep appreciationi we feel for their loyalty and continuous
past.age we beg to say that we intend in the future to try and merit
this patronage as never before. To do this our facilities are vastly im
proved over the first few years of our beginning: then there was only a
limited demand for goods such as we sold. and commencing with only a
small line of Shelf Hardware and Agricultural implements. we have
year after year added line upon line to our stock until now some of
these new lines far exceed in value our entire original stock, Our im
proved facilities now enable us to bring goods to our town and to mar
ket them at a cost impossible at first. We now have a splendid credit
established abroad second to none in the State, and owing to the greatly
increased value of our business we are able to ship goods in car load
lots. thercby saving not only in first cost but also in freights. We can
safely say that such goods as
Cook Stoves and Ranges,
Wire Fencing. Barbed Wire. Nails. Sheet Iron, etc., can be bought in
our town as cheaply as anywhere in the State in large or small quan
Of the above named goods we wish particularly to call the attention of our patrons to our line of
Cook Stoves and Rainges. We sell the Favorite Range and the 0. H.
Mystic Range, both splendid values, but our line of Cook Stoves is far
We have in stock the Jewel Stove, made by the Detroit Stove Works,
the largest stove plant in the world, but our main line is the O. K. Stove,
made-in Louisville. Ky. This cook stove we have proven by compar
ison and experience to be the best and most durable moderate price
stove made: this is no doubt due to the fact that only the best pig iron
is used in their construction. This we are guaranteed by the make' s

We assure you it is our intention to describe the various lines we have

Durveore of Dalate Ticklers.
The e?plosive nature of gunpowder.
which is made of charcoal, sulphur and
saltpeter, is due to the fact that when
fired the charcoal and sulphur are
burne& at the expense of the oxygen
in the saltpeter, much heat is devel
oped and large quantities of gas are
produced. This gas exerts great pres
sure on the sides of the gun; hence
its disruptive or propulsive effects.
When gunpowder is fired in a gun the
explosion is not instantaneous. The
expansive force of the gases produced
acts on the shot all the time It is mor
ing along the barrel and gradually in
creases its velocity. If the explosion
were so sudden as to be practically in
stantaneous the greater part of the
forces would be exerted mainly on the
sides of the chamber 'containing the
powder and not, as is actually the case,
on the shot.

Athletic Feats on the Moon.
Did you ever get to thinking that you
would enjoy a sudden translation from
the earth to the moon? If you have,
did you ever figure on the wonderful
feats of muscular strength with which
you could astonish our luminary neigh
bors, providing gravitation would have
no more effect accordingly there than
here? Let us figure: The moon only
weighs one-eightieth part as much as
the earth. Gravitation must therefore
be correspondingly less. If therefore
a man weighed 140 pounds on this
earth he would weigh but a fraction
over twenty pounds eccording to the
scales used on the moon. If, however,
his muscles and frame remained the
same as they were before being trans
ferred to our silvery sister world he
could "astonish the natives' with his
astounding athletic and muscular feats.
He would be able to shoulder an ele
phant of the regulation size and to
yank a small mountain out by the
roots. The buoyancy of his body would
Ie so great that athletic feats would
be easily accomplished. $e could run
a mile in something less than two sec
onds or could by a single bound leap
over a wall twenty-four feet high with
out greater exertion than would be re
quired here in clearing one only two
feet in height.

the fortieth day the baby's head is

The fortieth day marks a turning point

AN OLD LEGEND.
The Ancient Story of Lilith, Adam's
The old Talmudists had a queer leg
end concerning the first pair created
by the Almighty. According to the
story, Lilith was Atham's original "help
meet" and Eve was the after considera
tion. The Talmud says that Lillth was
created just as Adam was-out of the
dust of the earth. Soon after the
breath of life had been breathed into
her ears (you will remember that the
Bible says "nostrils" in Adam's case)
her entire nature changed to such an
extent that she became a veritable de
men. About this time the devil came
along, and, recognizing in Adam's wife
all that was necessary to make 4 first
class governess of the infernal regions,
persuaded her to quit the first man and
go with him into the "upper regions of
the air." To us this seems like a queer
place for the' location of hell, but that
Is the direction the pair is said to have
taken when they left Adam as the sole
occupant of the garden. At home with
the king of the sulphurous domain, she
became the mother of devils and then
deserted Pluto and became a "specter
of darkness." .
After this transformation her sole de
light appears to have been in the de
struction of innocent babes. It is even
said that our word "lullapy" is a cor
ruption of the oriental term, "lilla abi,"
which means "avaunt," or "begone,
The Way They Are Turned Out by
Three million separate shoe nails are
often cast from a ton of metal. Of the
smaller sizes 2,000 nails are molded in
a sigle mold, and an expert workman
will make eighty molds in an ordinary
working day, thus turning out 160,000
When the metal in a liquid state is
poured intQ the mold it runs through
the sand in passages provided in the
molding process. The whole of the
nails'are cast together and are, when
removed from the sand, connected by
a network of iron one with another.
In this condition the iron is as brittle
as glass, and very little force is re
quired to separate the nails from the
network which holds'them together.
They then have to undergo the proc
ess known as annealing. They are
mixed up with hematite iron ore, which
is in a powdered state, put into iron
pots and placed in an annealing fur
nace, a sort of kiln. Here they remain
for some days, care being taken'to so
regulate the heat to which they are
subjected that the iron will not be re
melted, but brought very nearly to that
condition. The action of the raw iron
ore upon the brittle casting is marvel
ous. After cooling it can be bent with
out risk of breaking, and it becomes a
useful and serviceable article.

An Oceupation That Quickly Dooms
