Ex-President Castro of Veoezuta, to

without a country.
Sumter. has employed a municipal
manager, and we will bet doughnuts to
dollars that its government will not be
run more efficiently than our town got
ernment with as little money. Man
ning is not heavily bonded and it is be
ing run as economically as any town in
the State of its size.

Examination of the- head of the dog
sent by you shows that the dog had a
well developed case of rabies. Your
hogs should therefore be slaughtered
at once if you wish to use them at
all. There is no possible objection to
using them for food within th next
few days, whereas if you wait"Iwo or
three weeks all of them or most of
them at any ~rate would develop rabies
and would he a total loose. I am send

DEMAND FoR CIGARETTES.
The amount of cigarettes used in our
country isaliiot. iner-dible, it being
stated that 11.221.624.084 cigarettes
were consumed in 1912. nearly 2,000,
.000.000 more than in: 1911. The treas
ury dfficials are unable to. account for
the enormous increase. It is impossi
hle to conceive the vastness of the in
jury, extensive and thorough, that is
constantly being *rougbt by these evils
among young and old in social and even
in business and educational spheres.
A DOLLAR A DAY.

for a year would do in China.
THE PARCELS POST LAW.
All Parcels Must Have Parcels Post Stamps
on Them After January First.
The parcels post laws, of which so
much has been written in the papers
and said during the past two years, is
anout to go into effect. On January 1st,
and thereafter all parcels, or fourth
class matter must have parcels' post
stamps on t.ham or they will be held at
the p sttlice until the new ow,..er can
gall for tnem and. provide the special
stampsJor the package.
The local pou.tofiee has received a sup
ply of the parcels post stamps.and will
place them on sale on January 1, 1913,
whnet parcels post law goes into effect.
After that time any stamps on packages
other than parcels post stamos.will be
useless. The parcels post provides for
the carrying through the mails of all
parcels containing mailable matter
weighing less than 11 pounds. The rate
has been fixed in the regulations and
varies according to the zone to which
the package is sent, there being eight
zones in the United States. In the local
zone the rate is cheapest and the cost of
sending the packages increases with
the distance it is sent.
All packages'sent must be delivered
at the poswffice where they will be
weighed, and the proper stamps provid-,
ed. No parcel can be registered, al
though provision is made for insuring
it at the same cost as for registering
packages heretofore. No parcel must
exceed 72 inches in combined length
and girth to he sent tbrough the mail.
One of the provisions of the parcels
post is that all parcels must contain the
name and address of the sender, no par
eels being sent unless these are provid
The inauguration of the pareels post
service means a great deal of extra trou
ble and work to the postottice clerks.
especially while they.are learning the
rates, of which there are thousands and
which to begin with, must be lookedl up
for eacn package. Maps of the zones
have been provided, tape measures for
measuring parcels. a special pair of
scales to weigh packages, stamps and
insurance tickets have all been provid
ed for the use of the postoffice employ
ees when the new law goes into effect.

The Worm That Turned.
The power of discipline and prece
dent in the army cannot be appreciated
by civilians.' At a two company post
n the west some years ago a captain
of infantry was in command, as his
ommission was of older date than
that of the captain of cavalry also
there.' The two captains hate each
other, but, of course, preserved the
usual amenities in official Intercourse.
One day the senior captain ordered the
junior to take a file of men to the for
est- and cut the firewood needed for
winter. This duty ordinarily would
have been given to a sergeant, but the
junior captain had no recoursesand was
obliged to obey. Just as he got outside
the post the mail, which came only at
gtervals of a week or more, arrived,

"Not One Cent For Tribute."
The copper piece with the legend,
"Millions for defense, not one cent for
tribute," is not a coin at all, but a
eda! commemorating .our troubles
with France during the Napoleonic
wars. Resenting our Jay treaty .with
Great Britain, made while George
Washington was president, and angry
because we would not .take sides in
hose wars, France in 1797 began to
attack our merchant ships, and we
came very near becoming involved in
war with her. We sent a commission
over to try to arrange the trouble, and
he French prime minister, Talleyrand,
gave them to understand we could ar
range It only by paying a bribe or
nmang a loan to the Frenchgovern
ment. To this It was said that Charles
Cotesworth Pinckney of South Caro
ina, a member of our commission, re
plied in the-words quoted on the med
l. This he denied, however, his re
ply being simply, "No, no, no; not one
Singular Use For Bread.
Bread is used for many purposes, but
the most singular use may be seen in
some of the great watch factories.
More than forty loaves of fresh bread
are required each day In one such fac
tory. It-appears that from the earliest
times in the history of watchmaking It
has been the custom of watchmnaker's
to reduce fresb bread to the form of
dough by steaming and kneading.
They use this dough for removing oil
and chips that naturally adhere In the
ourse of manufacture to pieces as
small as the parts of a watch. The
oil Is absorbed by the dough and the
chips stick to It, and there is no other
known substance which can be used
as a wiper without leaving some small
portion attached to the thing wiped.
In the earlier part of the nineteenith
entury many even of those who had
been up Alpine peaks themselves de
nounced the sport. Regarding the
ascent of Mont Blanc, Murray's Hand
book In the year 1838 stated that "all
who have succeeded have advised no
one to attempt It'" and nearly twenty
years later noted the "remarkable fact
that a large proportion of those who
have made this assent have been per
sons of usound mind."

Moscow is one of the most famous
cities in Europe. Exactly- 100 years
-before Napoleon's raid Moscow yielded
up to Petersburg-the modern addition
"Saint" was unknown to its founder,
Peter the Great-the position of capi
tal of the Russian 'empire, but' its geo
graphical situation has enabled it to
remain the premier commericial and
industrial city. - The heart of Moscow
is the Kremlin, where the czars are
crowned and- where may be seen the
875. cannon which Napoleon took td
the city- and left behind him when
forced to retreat with the remnant of
his great army. Moscow Is 400 miles
southeast of Petersburg, with which it
Is connected by a raliwgy-line almost
as straight as the crow fies. When
Nicholas I. decided the line should be
built he drew a straight line on the
map between the two cities, and en
