Greenville enjoyed its greatest
land sale last Thursday, when
Messrs. Smith & Mayes put on sale
113 lots in the Sparks & Slaton ad
iliton, in the northeast section of
town. There were some 20 acres of
the land, and a civil engineer had
platted the ground to the very best
advantage, three avenues being
opened north to south, and the land
sunounded on all sides by streets
already established. A vatt amount
of grading and cleaning up had been
done, and persons m town hardly
knew the land when they went to
the sale, so attractive did it appear.
Mr. G. S. Moore, the auctioncc-,
was greeted by a very small crowd,
but he is an old head U the business,
and was not in the least abtshed,
but started the sale promprly at 10
o'clock. lie is earnest and honest,
and soon had the confidence of the
ciowd. He started with a rush, and
the crowd of bidders was with him,
eager and liberal, and in three hours
the sale was over, the whole of the
lots being sold, except the one lot
given away, and Mr. James Spurlin
secured that. The managers gave
away $20, in batches of 55, and vc-
Vious parties secured these prizes,
but many persons who bid in lots arc
confident that they secured greater
prizes, as the lots sold at an average
of about $53 each, the aggregate be
ing 5 S79. and thi usual size of the
lots was 60x150 feet, many people
taking two' lots adj. lining. One
purchaser secured 17 lots, while 6
to a dw".cn was rather fretj e it, the
prices being very templing. Sever
al purchasers bought only one lot,
with the intention of building there
on, some of them at ot cc. With
some uniformity on the partof pur
chasers, this section- can be made
the prettiest in the whole city, as
grades, lines, etc , can be made to

and proved themselves worthy of the

A century aco Daniel Webster
deprecated the shifting of American
labor from the farms to the facto
ries. He did not like to see young
men ' itr.me se themselves in close
and unwholesome workshops" and
give up "the voice of the lark that
cheers them at the plow" for "dust,
and smoke, and steam, the perpet
ual whir of spools and spindles, and
the grating of rasps and saws."
The Polish National a'liance
aerecs with Webster. Most of the
Polish immigrants were farmers at
home, and yet most of them, when
they eet here, settle in the cities
and take up new I inch of work.
I'hc alliance wishes to sec them set
lc on he land, where their knowl-
cge of farming could come into
play. So it is working out a plan
for the purchase of extensive tracts
Gt land and their subdivision into
smalt farms to be sold to immi
grants as cheaply as ppssibje.
Every project of this kind should
be encouraged. Labor should be
diverted from the city to the coun
try.. t in needed there so that the
output of farm products may be in
creased and the cost of Hying kept
down. There should be more small
farms, because they lend themselves
more easily to the intensive cultiva
lion on which we shall have to dc
pend for an adequate supply of food
With sufficient capital and good
business management the plan ol
the Polish National alliance will be
a success. The alliance can easily
find good land and good men to put

One Company Names Its Locomotives
After Men of Long and Faithful
The Erie Railroad company, In pur
suanco of Its decision to honor engine-
men of long service with the company
by naming locomotives after them, has
t-hus far favored two Western New
York employes In this way. The first
pnglneman for whom a locomotive was
named Is William R. Benedict of DuN
falo. The second man was Thomas C.
Clark of Hornell, who draws a train on
the Allegheny division and .has worked
for the company for 47 years.
It is customary on some railroads
for englnemen to use tho same locomo-.
tlves regularly, while on other lines.
tho locomotives are used indiscrimin
ately; on some lines, when a run is
mado one day by one man and tho
next day by another, alternating regu
larly, tho locomotlvo makes both runs
and Is used by only these two men.
Englnemen generally prefer to have
tho same locomotive-' every time, as
they thus become familiar with Its
peculiarities and aro able to get the
best work from It. The assertion la
made by englnemen that locomotives
used Indiscriminately receive harsher
treatment than a machine used by ono
or two men regularly.
Hut It is not so much In tho Inter
ests ot economical treatment of loco
motives that tho Erie is naming some
of them for employes, but rather, it is
understood, as a tributo to tho faith
fulness of the men thus honored.
A few days ago ho fireman on the
L. & N. train while crossing the trestle
between Drakcsboro and Elk Valley,
saw n bird dog in front of the train on
tho treBtle. It was too far for tho dog
et p tho end of tho trestlo before
jlfie train overtook It, and there was
no way of getting off without leaping
to the ground. Most humans would
nave chanced tho ground, but on a
trestle there Is considerable space be
tween tho engine and the ties, so
grouching down In the middle of the
track the dpg waited fpr the train.
The train passed over him and the
dog got up and proceeded on 'bis way
to the end of the trestle. Queensboro

health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is clean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stom

Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
