Civet is an aromatic substince of
the consistence of honey and is ob
tained from a pouch on the civet cat,
an animal from two to three feet long
ind about ten or twelve inches high.
The best known of animal odors is
musk. which is obtained from the
musk deer. China furnishes the best
quality. Twenty-five pods or sacks
are packed in oblong boxes composed
of plates of lead inclosed in a caddy
made of pasteboard. Musk is obtain
ed from Assam, Siberia, the Altai
mountains and other parts of northern
'Asia. Ambergris is another animal
odor. It is secreted in the intestines
of the spermaceti whale. A very curi
ous fact is that ambergris is only ac
cumulated by disease-that is, it is
only secreted in a sick whale. It is
very hard, of a light gray color and is
found in quantities varying from twen
ty to fifty pounds. it is worth about
5G an ounce.-London Standard.

Of Interest to Teachers and Trustees.
The State Teachers' Association
meets in Columbia March 23rd-25th, in
clusive. Requests haye been made by
the State authorities that the trustees
throughout the State permit their
teache-'s to attend, giving them the two
school days on full pay. These associa
tion meetinas afford splendid oppor
tunities for teachers to meet each other,
and to become better acquainted with
the various problems that affect the line
of work in which they are engaged
This contact brightens them and gives
renewed energy and determination to
do more and better work when they
return to their various positions. I
hereby extend the request to the trus
tees throughout the county to permit
their teachers this privilege. I also
appeal to every white teacher to take
up this matter with your board and thus
avail yourselves of the advantages of
this opportunity, feeling sure you and
the community you serve will be more
than repaid for the loss of time.

"LGood news travels fast," and the

Many a lame, weak and aching back

Kidney Pills. Our citizens are telling
the good news of their experience

is an example worth reading:
W. R. White, S. Boundery St.,
Manning. S. C., s9.ys: "I can confirm
the statement I gave regarding
Dean's Kidney Pills in March, 1908,
and again say that this remedy acts
just as represented. I use .Doan's
Kidniey Pills occasionally when in
need of them and they always help
me: At one time my kidneys were
so weak that I had but little control
over the secretions. I sr'ffered con
stantly from backache and pains
across my loins and mornings. I was
so lame and sore that it was hard for
me to dress. If I sat down for a little
while, I had to lift myself up by
main force. Nothing ever helped me
until I used Doan's Kidney Pills.
They restored my kidneys to a nor

other symptoms of my complaint."

The Word "Gaiters."
Episcopal gaiters cannot date from a
very remote antiquity. The very word
"gaiters' is almost.a newcomer to the
language. Johnson's Dictionary does
not recognize its existence. It does not
occur before 170, and even in 1802 a
military dictionary had to define it as
"a sort of spatterdashes." "Guetre,"
however, the French original, goes
back at least to the fifteenth century,
and the origin of that is lost, though
etymologists compare all sorts of
words in all sorts of languages, includ
ing an old German word for a baby's
christening cloth. The one certainty is
that gaiters has nothing to do with
gait in spite of the punning line in the
"Rejected Addresses"-"Lax in their
gaiters, laxer in their gait."-London

A fine historical dog story is recalled
by Mr. Edwin Noble in "The Dog Lov

with the fight of William Wallace to

among whom was one named Fad
zean. When the baying of the blood
hounds was heard announcing the
coming of the English Fadzeau refused
to go any farther, affecting weariness,
and Wallace, suspecting him of traitor
ous intentions, killed him. When the
English came up the hounds .stayed
upon the dead body and refused to- fol

The Doctor's Joke.
A physician who never goes out at
night without leaving directions as to
where to find him if -wanted profes
sionally was at a theater near Forty
second street recently with a frierd.
Just before the curtain went up on d
the second act an usher handed him a b
note reading: "Come to the office at
once. Don't telephone. Come." The
note was signed by a colleague, and
the doctor lost no time in obeying the
peremptory summons. Arriving at his
destination, he was confronted by sev
eral friends, who coolly explained that
he had been used to decide a bet as to
the length of time it would take to cov
er the distance which he had trav
ersed. The victim's anger was only
slightly appeased when he was assur
ed that the perpetrators of the joke
knew no one else who was good na
tured enough to furnish the informa
tion looked for.-New York Tribune.

Dirt and Death.
When a celebrated Paris physician ti
was asked how the city could prevent c
the coming of a plague then ravaging -
other European places he answered, ~
"Boil your ice!" That tersely called
attention to the necessity of utter
clenliness and that even ice made
from impure water carried disease.
"elwfever," said Henry Ward p
Beecher, "is God Almighty's opinion of
dirt." The chief contributing cause
toward modern efficiency in surgery isn
that surgeons have learned to keep
clean. Nothing is so spotless as a good
hospital. Everything is boiled and
sterilized-beds, instruments, clothing,
washrags, floors, hands and finger ~
nails. That is why they save lives
there. Nobody would die if he could t<
keep perfectly clean. Death is the
final triumph of dirt.-Chicago Trib

Almost everybody who quotes at all

ian to hear:
A man convinced against his will

This is an impossible condition of g
ind, for no one can be convinced of
ie opinion and at the same time hold
an opposite one. What Butler wroteJ
'as eminently sensible:
He that complies against his will
Is of his own opinion still.
A famous passage of Scripture is of
m misquoted thus: "He that'is with
at sin among you let him cast the

est cast a stone."
Sometimes we are told, "Behold, how
reat a fire a little matter kindleth,"
hereas St. James said; "Behold, how
reat a matter a little fire kindleth," a
'hich is quite a different thing.
We also hear that "a miss is as good 0
