The man who knocked the head out of
a four dollar barrel of apples and just
beneath found a message put in by the
grower, "I got 7~5 cents for this barrel
of apples-please let me know what
,J you had to pay for it," uncovered in
'very simple manner two of the fac
tors that are chiefly responsible for the
present high cost of living--the profits
exacted~ by the tr.nsportation compa
nies and middlemco~. The problem is
certainly one that ceserves investiga
*don of a very thorough type.
A Reilable Medicine-Not a Narcotic.
Mrs. F. Marti, St. Joe, Mioh., says:
"Our little boy contracted a severe
bronchial -trouble and as the doctor's
medicine did not cure him, I gave him
Foley's Honey and Tar Compound in
which I have great faith. It cured the
cough as well as the choking and ga
ging spells, and he got well in a sort
time. Foley's Honey and Tar Com
pound has many times saved us much
trouble and we are never without it in
tle house." W. E. Brown & Co.
A visit of Gladstone to the Isle of
'Man is recalled'by Agnes Herbert and
'deribed in her book about that in
teresting little speck in the midst of
the Irish sea.
~Mr. Gladstone had made a detour
across a sall holding in Rushen, and
his way lay through the~ "haggart,"
where the stacks are harvested. A
strong, powerfully built Maniwoman
stood throwing up the straw to the
stack, using her fork as deftly and
quickly as a farm laborer.
"That is very hard work, my good
.woman," the Grand Old Man is re
ported to have said graciously, "but
you look well and strong. May I ask
how old you are?"
The toiler hardly turned as she an

The Arts of Asia.
It was Asia, through Arabia, which
gave Europe the fiterature, the arts
and the sciences whichMe. have de
.veloped and of which we n64-boast.
Gunpowder was probably invented if
hina. It was certainly introduced
Into Europe from Arabia. The finely
itempered steel of Damascus went over
Erom Arabia at the time of the Moor
ish invasion of Spain, and its manu
facture was continued at Toledo. The
icoppersmiths of Bagdad supplied the
prorid's market with their wonderful
productions centuries before there
swere any industries in Europe. Weav
inag of silk and cotton had its birth as
an industry In Arabia, and the weav
tng of wool was learned by the crn
saders in the same wonderful country.
'Asronomy, mathematics, the mariner's
compass-all came to us from the
Averts Awful Tragedy.
Timely advice given Mrs. C. Willough
by, of Marengo. Wis., (R. No. 1) pre
vented a dreadful tragedy and saved
two lives. Doctors had said her fright
ful cough was a "consumption" cough
and could de little to help her. After
many remedies failed, her aunt urged
her to take Dr. King's New Discovery.
"I have been using it for some time,"
she wrote "and the awful cough has al
most gone. It also saved my little boy
when taken with a severe bronchial
trouble." This matchless medicine has
no equal for throat and lung troubles.

Setting a Watch.
"The jeweler set my watch within a
thousandth of a -second when .he gave
it to me today," said the man with a
new timepiece, "and this is how he
"He has. a clock wired up with the
big chronometer at Washington. Ati
4 p. m. this clock was corrected to
the thousandth of a second. At 4:05
he was ready to deliver my watch.
His master clock has a 39.1 inch pen
dulum, so it ticks seconds. Each of
the first fifty-five ticks in each minute
is announced by a telegraph sounder
in the clock, then the -last five seconds
ae silent. The watchmaker rested a
camel's hair brush on the balance
wheel of the watch to stop It, then set
all, the hands, hour, minute and second
at 4:06:00 and waited. When the si
lence of the- sounder indicated 4:05:55
he got ready, and five seconds later, on
the first tick of 4:06, ~e lifted the
brush and the watch ~tred. By
looking at the second hand with a
glass and listening to the clock an
nouncer I proved their identicalness
except for the time it took the sound
to travel from the clock to my ear."

A waterspout Is a miniature tornado
originating in a strong upward draft3
of air which odcurs above the surface
of a body of comparatively warm wa
ter. Its effect first becomes visible in a
circular motion at the point in the
clouds to which it ascends. This be
comes a whirl, which condenses the
vapor at its center, causing the por
tion of the cloud there to drop down
ward in the shape of a gigantic jelly
ba. At the same time the continuing
upward draft increases the rapidity of
its original swirl and the condensed
vapor caught within it until the
ascending and descending masses join
to form the waterspout. Necessarily
by this process the air beneath the
spout is rarefied, and thus where the
phenomenon occurs at sea the water
always seems to be sucked up ito it,
although this is not really the case to
any considerable extent For similar
reasons where a waterspout or torna
do passes over a buflding it does most I
of Its damage by exhausting the air
outside, causing what is within to ex- I
a anbo th+e scturen to pieces. j'

OUR SPRING LETTER.
SUMMERTON, S. C., March 1, 1911.
A buggy-ride through the country with the blooming peac
ad the apple blossoms on each side, the common fence 'cornE
riar bush budding forth, indicates that spring is, nearly ner
he tooting of a strange whistle and the rushing by of a-train
LTrs on the Northwestern, the road which does for us what not:
ber can do, brings us home each night, tells us that the guam
Ktra is on, pressaging the early use of Fertilizer Distributor.
he land is "flushed," only waiting to be worked.
In passing I would like to.mention that we have anticipate
ie wants of our friends and are prepared to offer them the
ioice of the following Distributors: Cole, K. P. Gantt, Gem an
ex. We also have the following Planters: Cole Combinatio
otton and Corn, with and without the guano attachment; th
ox (there is nothing better), and the Old Reliable Dowlow, th
e that has planted more acres than all others . combined. On
rices will bear comparison with the surrounding markets. W
re also in touch with the needs of our trade in the way of Straig:
hovels, Sweeps or Scrapes, in all sizes. We also have an elegat
ine of Farm Bridles.
The number of -high tenant houses being built shows the ir
)roved condition of our country. 15c. cotton is gradually brini
g as into own. Brick chimneys and metpl roofs seems' to I
he order of the day.. While on this subject, will put in a wo
or the business. We are headquarters for this section for Lim

Ve usually have it when others are "just out."'
' T he miles of Fencing and the fat barrows with the old so
,nd droves of suckling pigs, in connection with the record 4
annah Plowden, impresses one with the idea that the day of t]
estemn smoke house-and barn for our people is past; mere.
pken of as "way back yonder," like the war or earthquake. 01
hipment of Wire has arrived and the price is right. Try tl
markets and come and see us, you will buy. No drayage to pa;
ar unloaded in our warehouse.
Incidentally, would like to mention that' we have lost five<
ix sets of wire stretchers some where in our surrounding countr;
Lny information in regard to them will be 'appreciated.
Don't forget our Tin Smith. We are prepared to do met
rork at once and in an up-to-date manner. .We are grateful f<
