in the, Wake of tie Measles.
The little son of Mrs. 0. B. Palmer,
Little Rock. Ark., had the measles.
The result was a severe cough which
grew worse and he could not sleep. She
says: "One bottle of Foley's Honey and
Tir Compound completely cured him
and he has never been bothered since."
Croup, whooping cough, measles cough
all yield to Foley's Honey and Tar Com
pound. The genuine is in the yellow
package always. Refuse substitutes.

soldier who as he was being carried

sends out this warning to railroaders:
'A conductor on the railroad, my work
caused a chronic inflammation of, the
kidneys, and I was miserable and all
played out. A friend advised Foley
Kidney Pills and from the day I com
menced taking them, I began to regamn
my strength. The inflammation cleared
and I am far better than I have been
for twenty years. The weakness and
sizzy spells are a thing of the past ana
I highly recommend Foley Kidney

OUR SPRING LETTER.
SUMMERTON. S. C., March 1, 1911.
A buggy ride through the ountry with the. blooming peach
Ld the apple blossoms on each side, the common fence corner
iar bush budding forth, indicates that spring is nearly nlere.
[e tooting of a strange whistle and the rushing by of a train of
,rs on the Nortihwestern-, the road- which does for us what none
her can do,- brings us home each night, tells us that the guano

E'e land is "flushed," only waiting to be worked.
In passing I would like to mention that we have anticipated
e wants of our friends and are prepared to offer them their.
ioice of thbe following Distributors: Cole, K. P. Gantt, Gem and
ex. We also have the following Planters: Cole Combination
~otton and Corn, with. and without the guano attacflment; the
~ox (there is nothing better); and the Old Reliable Dowlow, the

rices will bear comparison with the surrounding markets. We

hovels, Sweeps or Scrapes, in all sizes. We also have an elegant

Explosives In Your Body.
The human bodyl contains no fewer
than four substances which are so In- (
fammable that In a pure state they ,
will "go off" by spontaneous combus
tion. For instance, there Is phospho-I
rus. The body of a person weighing
120 pounds contains twenty-two
ounces of this substance, which, aa#
everybody knows, readily takes fire of'
Its own accord If exposed to the air..
It Is combined with lime to make the
bones, taking the form of phosphate
lime. The body -of a human being'
weghng 120 pounds contains nearly
one -and a half ounces of magnesium,
two onces of sodium-.and nearly two
and a half ounces of potassium. The
first of these, a substance of silvery
whiteness, is so readily and fiercely
combustible that It has to be kept
tightly corked in bottles to prevent it]
from Igniting of Its own accord. S
dium will take fire If thrown Into
water, and so likewise will' potassium.
-the latter with great violence, finally
exploding and throwing a shower of
sparksjinto the air.--New York World.
Into a hospital came two men with]
battered faces. q
"Street fight?" said the surgeon In
.It was. Under the doctor's directions
orderlies moved beds and patients
around until the newcomers were

"In this case that precaution may not

we learned the peculiarities of those
people it happened more than once
that two men who were mortal- ene
mies were brought In and laid out side4
by side. Each saw his advantage and'
was foxy enough to keep still until e
both were left alone in adjoining cots;
then they sailed Into each other tooth
and nail, trying to finish the job that
had been interrupted In the street

The Word "Chap." a
hapan, the merchantof former days.
and is derived from the Anglo-Saxon
"ceap," a bargain. The word almost
brings before us the loud voiced
"cheap Jack" as he cries his wares in
the cheaping or market. Chap seems
to have come into common use at the
end of the sixteenth century and Is
rarely mentioned in books before 1700.,
lohnson does not recognize it, though
teele uses it In 1712 in the Spectator
("If you want to sell, here Is your
ehap"), and it is found In Bailey's Dic
ionary, 1731. Its original maning of
buyer or seller still lingers in the
ialects of many counties. Coupled
with the adjectives old, young, little,
poor it was and is used in familiar
Language, as is its relative, a queer
'customer." Todd, 1818, affrms that a
god chap meant one to whom credit

by good it was a term of contempt
A Mighty Appetite. Ii
We eat, but we no longer stuff. The
reat stuffers of . the past are dead.
What of that seventeenth cen~tury
Eentish man Nicholas Wood. for ex
imple, who would eat a whole hog at
i sitting and follow It up the next day
with thirty dozen pigeons? Withal
his possessor of a "Kentish stomach" -
was a sportsmnan. As proof of this
bero is that record of his challenge to
raylor, the water poet, to "eat at one
ime as much black pudding as would
each across the Thames at any place
:o be fixed by Taylor himself between
Eondon and Richmond." Well might -
>d Fuller moralize over that appetite
>f Wood's. "Let us' raise our grati
ude " he said, "to the goodness of
sod, especially when he giveth us ap
.ette enough for our meat and yet
neat too much for; our appetite."
