A Waggish Wheelman.
A well-known wheelman, who was
also a wag, was recently summoned
before a judge in Copenhagen. Den

to Lyngby Church.
"You have been cycling on the
Lyngby Church footpath?" said the
Judge, severely. The cyclist ad
"You are fined four kroner."
The offender took out the coins and
and laid them down. "May I ask,
Your Worship," he inquired, meekly,
"whether Prince Waldemar and
Princess Marie have permission to
cycle on the path in question?"
The Judge looked uneasy. "Um-=
no, certainly not. Is this your first

"Wait! Did you actually see Prince
Waldeiar and Princess Marie riding
on that path?"
"'1? Your Worship-certainly not,"
replied the wag, with a mild look of
surprise; and then, with a twinkle in

of the Age.
DONALD KENNEDY, OF ROIBUJRY, MASS.,
Has discovered in one of our common
pasture weeds a remedy that cures every
kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofula
down to a common pimple.
He has tried It in over eleven hundred
eases, and never =-neo except in twocases
(both thunder frumor). He has now in
his possession over two hundred certifi- 'j
cates of its value, all within twenty milee t
of Boston. Send postal yard for book.
A benefit is always experienced from the
first bottle, and a perfect care is warranted
when the right quantity is taken.
When the lungs are affected it causes
shooting pains, like needles passing
through them: the same with the Liver
or Bowels. This is caused by the ducts t
being stopped, and always disap'pears in a t
'week after taking it. Read the labeL.
If the stomachi is foul or bilious it will
cause squeamish feelings at first.

ROW TO CULTIVATE THE WEED.
Dessons In the Tobacco Farm. Out
lines of the Process.
South Carolina tobacco, as a rule, has been
>est adapted for high grade *rappers and
or smoking tobacco-. These require the best
rades naturally, and the curing also hag
iad much to do with the high prices that
iave been paid for South Carolina tobacco.
L'obacco can be cured in two ways, by cut
ing the leaves and curing on wires as the
eaves ripen, and also by cutting down the
;talk, leaves and all. nad curing differently
omewhat from the wire or steel process. It
as been the rule in Darlingtdn and Florence
.ourtiet t6 cure on the sticks and wires, but
his may perhaps be changed, as the large
nanufacturers are now urging that tobacco
thall be stalk cured. This mode of curing
s deemed so much more desirable by the
nanufacturers' that some of them have in
ftructed their local buyers to adhere, as
;trictly as possible, to purchasing stalked
red tobacco for them. The buyers of
rappers have been particularly instructed
:o purchase stalk-cured tobacco, and the
nanufacturers say that a test of this will
early convince all of the superiority of this
: the wire=cured tobacco, and they prophesy
he early abandonment of the curing by
If It is desired to cure on the wires the
eaves are taken from the plant as they ripen,

[hese are placed in baskets and conveyed to
he curing barns and there strung on the
vires, four to six inches apart, on each point
Lecording to size of leaf. Extra care must
Lgain be taken to avoid bruising or other
rise damaging the leaves. The sticks are
hen hung in the barns on tier poles, about
welve inches apart, beginning at the top of
he barn and filling it. When the barn is
Wiled, which must be done on the day the
ood is consumed, close the ventilators,
tart a slow fire in the furnace and gradually
aise the temperature to 90 0 or 95 0 Fah
enheit. Hold the temperature at this heat
or twelve hours, which will toughen the
eaf, then advance the heat 20 an hour un
il one hundred is reached. Again hold the
emperature stationary for twelve hours,
hen open ventilators and let the heat remain
6t 100 0 for six hours, when the sweat will
>e sufficiently dried off and the tobacco will
Pe sufficiently colored to again advance the
eat. Then advance the heat 2X 0 per hour

and 150 0 is reached in a twenty-foot barn.
lold at this temperature until the leaf is
illed or cured, which will usually be in
out twelve hours.
Close ventilators now and advance at 24 0
o 5 0 per hour until 170 0 is reached, then
told the ten p -rature until the stemsorstalks
re cured, waueh will be about in eighty hours
rom the time the barn was filled. Then open
he doors and the ventilators and let the barn
ool. When the tobacco becomes soft enough
o fold the leaf so as not to break the small
res in the leaf, then take the wires down,
trip off the leaves and carry them to the
>ack house and bulk it down, turning the
ips of the leaves in and the butts out Care
aust here be taken not to have the tobacco
too high "case" whenitis taken down and
ulked and that causes it to redden and
old, 'which distracts materially from the
'alue of the tobacco.
The same process of curing can be success
ally followed in stalk curing. As stated
,efore, come of the large manufacturers
irefer stalk cured tobacco. but there is no
eason why careiul attention should not pro
uce equally satisfactory results by curing
rith the wire Drocess. Careful reflection
d talks with Darlington and Florence
ounty planters indicate decidedly that th
the case. When tobacco is properly cured
seems that it is evidently cured as well in
ne of these ways as it is in the other, and
he highest prices have been paid for wire
ured tobacco during the past two seasons.
talk curing can only be successfully done
hen all the leaves ripen at the same time,
d this may or may not be the case. For
oime reason, the large manufacturerr some
> them, at least, prefer the stoalr-cured to
acco, and when a pln do so it would
e well for him to a e the experiment for
imsl and ~ 6comparative value of the
vo pro ees. Let him remember, in either
aset he cannot be too careful when he
e~nees curing his tobacco.
After the tobacco has been cured and pack
d away or "bulked down" in the pack barn
tshould rem'ain in this condition until it is
ecided to sell it. When the planter decides
o carry his tobacco to the warehouse for
ale he should have everything carefully pre
ared beforehand. While the tobacco is in
he pack barn it should be carefully graded,
ad this is not hard to learn. This is done
y carefully assorting the leaves of uniform
ize. color and texture in separate piles.
'hen the leaves must be tied up in "hands"
f from six to twelve leaves in each hand.
arranging or assorting these different
rades it is important that each grade be kept
eparate and distinct. The different grades
ay be hung on the stick or may be bulked
a the planter may prefer. It is not a diffi
at process to grade tobacco properly, as
e leaves that most resemble each other are
.ot hard to get together. The colored hands
ke to tobacco culture naturally, and seem
o like it very much. In several instances
mong the planters of Darlington and Flor
ee counties colored men do the grading
ntirely after having had some experience in
urigg and bulkinz the tobacco.
Tobacco isnot sold as is any other agricul
ural product inSouth Carolina. A fter the
armer has graded it he carries it to the
earest and best warehouse. The proprietor
neets him and his tobacco, along with any
>ther that may have been carried to the ware
touse that day, is placed in piles all ever the
ioor, each pile belonging to a different own
r. whose name is placed on it. When every
bing -is ready the auctioneer comme~nces
rork. the buyers gather around, and the live
iest kind of bidding is seen. The namne of the
tighest bidder and the number of pounds of
obacco in each pile he buys is attached to a
ard. and the sellers may accept or reject any
id that is made. The auctioneer continues
intil every lot has been sold, and after this
Las been done the buyers and sellers get to
ether for a settlement.
It has been thoroughly and practically
emonstrated that tobacco culture in South
iarolina is a success. The planters of Dar
ngton and Florence counties have estab
shed this fact, and they have bad difficul
ies in doing so. At no time has the work
een easy, and at many stages it was most
tiscouraging. There is n o ,do ub t
hat great care must be taken in almost
very detail of tobacco culture, but, on the
ther.hand, there is no doubt but that great
ewards are in store for those who make the
ffort. It is, beyond question, the moneyed
rp for South Carolina, and the fact that It
equires great care and attention should only
an incentive to ambitious planters. It well
epays every effort bestowed upon it, and for
hese very reasons it can never be a common
rop. Small crops of five acres that were
arefully attended to and properly cultivated
Lave in several cases yielded much hand
omer results than fifty acres planted in cot
on. Let what was said in the first one of
hese letters be repeated here, and this will
xplain, it is hoped, once more why it is best
o be careful. "Now common sense is worth
ast as much in tobacco culture as it is any
rhere else. These letters, it is hoped, have
hewn why tobacco culture should be
'arefully dove, but they need excite no fears
rith any farmer who is willing to take pains
rith what he does. Use the right seed, han
le carefully to keep the leaves from being
ruised, kill the insects to save your tobacco,
ure carefully and properly to get the mon
y for your work, and the entire secret is be
ore those who can and will make the test.

before the spring season ends. But while
the volume of loans Is growing money is
also becoming more plentiful, as the increase
of $10,834,700 In deposit and $3,836,525 in

not be lost sight ol in the general satisf action

The demand foi money during the week
just ended has been practically from the

at rates believed to be not far from 4 per

country has throwt. off entirely the effects of
the panic, but the revival in busIness, judg

banks, has been more than satisfactory, and
is cause for general congratulations. Not

THE STORY OF A VETERAN'S
How Fred Taylor. a Memaber of the Gal
lant 189th N. Y.,* V. I., Finally
Found What Hi neas ought
Since the War Closed.
(F-rm the Ashtabula, Ohio, .Beacon.)
.Mr. Fred Taylor was born and brought up
near Elmira. N. Y.. and from there enlisted
in the 189th regiment. N. Y., V. I., with
which he went through the war and saw
much hard service. Owing to exposure and
hardships during the service, Mr Taylor con
tracted chronie diarrheua, from which he han
suffered now over thirty years. with absC
lutely no help from physicians. By naturo
he was a wonderfully vigorous man. Had
he not been, his disease and the experiments
of the doctors had killed him long ago.
Laudanum was the only thing which afford
ed him relief. He had terrible headaches,
his nerves wore shattered,'he could not sleep
an hour a day on an average, and he was re
duced to a skeleton. A year ago he and his
wife sought relief in a change of climate and
removed to Geneva. Ohio; but the change in
health came not. Finally, on the recom
mendation of F. J. Hofiner, the leading drug
gist of Ge..eva, who was cognizant of similar
ases which Pink Pills had cured, Mr. Taylor
was persuaded to try a box. "As a drowning
man grasps a straw, so I took the pills," says
Mr. Taylor. "but with no more hope of
rescue. But after thirty years of suff&ring
and fruitless search for relief I at last found
it in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The day afteri
took the first pills Icommrenced to feel better.
and when I had taken the first box I was in
fact a new man." That was two months ago.
Mr. Taylor has since taken more of the pills
and his prcgress is steady, and he has the
utmost confidence in then'. He has regained
full control of his ner ves and sleeps as well
as in his youth'. Color is coming back to his
parched veins and he is ;;aining flesh and
strength rapidly. He is now able to do con
siderable out door work.
As he concludcd nanating his sufferinigs,
exrerienee and cure to a Beacon reporter.
Mrs. Taylor. who lhas been his faithful help
meet these irany yt ars. said she wished to
add her testimny ;n favor of Pink Pills.
"To the pills alone is due the credit of rais
ing Mr. Taylor fromi a helpless invalid to the
man he is tc-day." said Mrs. Taylor. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Taylor~ cannot find words to ex
press the gratitude they feel or recommend
too highly Pink Pills to enff-ering humanity
Any inquirits addrsssed to them at Geneva,
., regarding Mr. Taylor's case, they will
cheerfully answer, as they are anxious that
the whole world sball know what Pink PIlls
have done for them and that suffering hu
manity may he henellted thereby.

ments necessary to give new life and richness
