and incidents of the walking tour.
Then the letters ceased altogether.
Several times lately the doubt had
arisen in Lord 3Iethiwick's mind as to
whether he- had not been too severe,
rLeemberirng that his son had hitherto
borne an irreproachable character,
evineing a deep) dislike to all the
woraer formis of dissipation, and there
was no doubt that this unfortunate af

The day came when Giuseppe's re

Lu'I pent-up anxiety caused his lord

minediately recognized. With trem

In after years that day always re

with his wife's continual fainting fits;
is three daughters consecutive
ysterics, their conscious intervals be

bhought that the poor man had him

ever be able to hear both sides; the
2rrid possibility of getting the wan

nent further tortures might be in
yourse of infliction-he often mar
elled, not only that he survived it, but
1hat reason did. not altogether forsake
ier tottering throne.
And the climax was reached when,
in the softening shades of twilight,
ady Methwick and her three daugh

>rocession to a distant part of the

stream and 'beneath a spreading tree,

The outgoing evening mail carried

be a Consul in the near neighborhood,

a sunburnt, black-bearded giant, pic

sheriff had justbeen re-elected for four
years, ordered a change of venue to

& North Carolinian Sues the Dispensa
ry Board for Damages.
The fight on the dispensary law has
broken out in a new form that has
more than ordinary interest because
of the complications likely to follow.
This time it is a suit for damages
against the State board of control. It
is brought in the United States Dis
trict Court under an Act of Congress
entitled, "An Act to protect trade and
commerce r.gainst unlawful restraint
and monopoly." The Plaintiff is
Julius Loweustein. of Statesville. N.
C., doing business as Lowenstein & Co.
He is represented by Messrs. Murphy,
Farrow & Legare. The defendants
are John Gary Evans, D. H. Tomp
kins, Jas. Norton and Frank M. Mix
son, who style themselves "as a board
of control,'" "under the pretended au
thority of a certain Act of the Legis
laturo of the State of South Carolina."
The complaint charges that the de
fendants are "combined to monopo
lize trade in 'wines, liquors, beer and
all other alcoholic drinks used as a
beverage in South Carolina." That
on the 27th day of May the plaintiff
delivered to the Southern Railway at
Statesville one barrel of liquor, worth
$57,38, and consigned to Thomas
Hartigan, Charleston, S. C. That on
Ibe 20th the said liquor was seized by
parties, to the plaintiff unknown, but
who are agents of thme "State board 'f
control," and that the plaintiff is dam
aged to the amount of $57 38, and he
asks for judgment for $171 84, attor
eya' fee and cost of the action.
The most interesting feature of the
case is that the barrel of liquor in
question has been seized by the United
States revenue officials, .wvho claim
that the stampl found upon it has been
used once before, and Mr. .Lowen
stein will be called upon to prove that
it has not been used before, oc to suf

Instructive Meeting of Tobacco Grow
The rcgular monthly meeting of the
Darlington, S. C., Tobacco Growers'
Association was held in the court
house, Gen. W. E. James presiding.
The subjects for discussion were prim
ing, topping and curing. Able and
instructi re addresses were dehivered
by B. F. Williamson, B. F. Smoot
and others, after which the president,
H. E. Harmon, the wide awake editor
and proprietor of the Son thern To
bacco Journal, gave them a talk. He
wa very unwell, but made a few re
marks, wchich were exceedingly com
plimentary and encouraging. He
spoke of the fine attendance, and mode
of discussion. He also said it would
be a short time when this section would
grow in abundance the finest tobacco
in this country, rand that the yield per
acre was much larger than in Virginia
and North Carolina.
The committee appointed to look af
ter the interest of members in the mat
ters of royalties claimed by certain pa
tentees of barns, sticks, etc., made its
report behind closed doors. Resolu
tions of thanks were '.then voted the
committee for its good report,and also
to Mr. Harmon for his words of good
The president read a few statistics
which were very interesting. The
number of acres planted last year were
770; barns constructed 130. This
year there is en increase of 3,000 acres,
and 240 new barns. These figures
show that tobacco culture has become
a serious business with these people.
A letter was read from Commissioner
. L. Roach, in which he stated that
they wold allow a special space for
tobacco exhibits from that county in
Atlanta, and that all other exhibits
would be placed in the State collection
and would be plainly marked with the
exhibitor's name and postoffice address.
The subjects at the next meeting are
grading, packing and selling. These
subjects will also be discussed at the
meeting of the Agricultural and Me

TO CLEAN GLOVES AT HOME.
To clean gloves with gasoline firsi
stretch them either on a frame or on
your own hand. Have abundance of
clean flannel and cotton near by.
With a little benzine on a small piece
of flannel go over the entire glove,
flger by finger. As soon as the flan
nel becomes soiled exchange it for
clean. Do not use enough benzine to
saturate the leather, but simply
enough to clean off the soiled spots.
Rub the gloves from the finger tips,
generally downward and upward, and
not in a circular way or across the
leather. After using the gasoline on
a soft spot rub it with clean flannel
until it seems perfectly dry.
Only the very highest quality of
benzine, or, better still, gasoline can
be used. When the gloves are thor
oughly cleaned rub them with clean
flannel and abundance of talcum pow
der. This powder can be bought at
any first class drug store, and ten
cents' worthis ordinarily enough for 9
year's suppiy. Rub the leather thor
oughly in every part with this talcum
powder. It makes the glove not only
pliable and pleasant to wear, like a
new glove, but it puts a soft bloom on
the leather. -Milwaukee Journal.
Few confections are more delicions
than candied fruit, and, too, fen
sweetmeats are more expensive, sixty
cents a pound being the regulation
price, and a pound represents a very
small amount. They can be prepared
at about half -the cost, however, at
home, if care is taken.
Cherries, currants, pine-apples,
apricots, pears and peaches are best
experimented upon. The two former
can be used in bunches; the pine
apple is sliced across the fruit, each
piece being a go-od quarter inch thick;
apricots are cut on one side and the
stone sliped out, while pears and
peaches are halved, and, of course,
Make a very thick syrup, pound for
pound, adding for each pound a small
cup of water. Bcil the sugar first,
then drop in the fruit, and when they
have boiled clear take out and drain
from the syrup. If the cherries are
stoned (the red oxhearts make the
finest, being not so sweet as the white
and without the rank iartness of the
sour red ones), it is nice to string
them on a broom splint as they can be
more cleverly handled.
Sprinkle liberally with powdered
sugar, lay on a sieve, and set the fruit
in a warm oven. I used a wire dish,
such as our grandmothers kept fruit
in, set within auiother dish to catch
the syrup. in two hours turn the
fruit, sprinkle with sugar again.
Keep this up until the sugar has all
dripped out. On no account have the
oven hot, as it will dry the fruit and
leave it like so much leather. An-1,
of course, the fruit must be laid in
single rows whcn drying.
When the juice has evaporated and
the sugar has formed a glazed surface,
put away in boxes in a dry place.
Waxed paper should be laid between
each layer. A bureau drawer is as
good a place as any to keep them.

tho up-river farms of New York had
an ingenious way of recovering pock
et-knives that might have been
dropped or mislaid while plowing or
grdenin; was going on. Cutlery
was not as cheaD then and abundant
as in these days; so the farmers took
the thrifty precaution of keeping two
or three sunflower seeds in their
knife handles. Then if the knives fell
upon broken ground and could not be
readily found, the owners would wait
until the seeds sprouted, and an iso
lated sunflower stalk or blossom in
field or patch would signalize the pos
sibility of a missing article's being at
its root. True, the owner did not always
realize the result of the scheme, be-I
cause a passing boy who understood
the token often "got there" before the
planter. -New York Tribune.

A Strange Village.
At Tebessa, in Algeria, near the Tu
nis frontier, a strange megalithic vil
lage has been discovered. At the foot
of a shell limestone cliff, half a mile
from the phosphate mines, are many
large boulders, from thirty-five to
forty feet in circumference, which have
fallen from the cliff. These were hol
lowed into rooms about seven feet
square, and openings cut in the rock 4
for windows and doors. - As mega,
lithie tombs, large slabs supported on
upright stones, are near by, it is proba
ble that these little rooms were used
as dwellings and not as burial places.
