Ah* Always Made Home Happy.
In an old church yard stood a stone,
Weather-marked and stained;
The hand of Time had crumbled it,
Bo only part remained.
Upon ono sido I could Just trace,
" In memory of our mother;"
" She always mado home happy 1" this
Was chiseled on the other.
I gazed on monuments of fame,
High tow'rlng to the skieB;
I saw the sculptured marble stone
(Whore a great hero lies;
But by this opltaph I paused,
And read It o'er and o'er.
T hjad. never soon Inscribed
a wot (Is as theso before.
~e always mado home happy!"
What a noble record left!
A legacy of mem'rles sweet
To those whom death bereft.
What a testimony to hor worth
By those who knew hor best,
Engraven on this orumbling stono
That marked their mother's rest.
. It was a narrow resting place,
Among tho humble poor,
But they had scon tholr mother toll,
And patiently enduro.
They marked her willing sacrifice
As, ono by one, sho bore
Her cross-llko burdens up tho hill,
Till all hor toil was o'or.
So, when God stilled hor weary heart,
Folded her hands so whlto
And Bho was carried from tho homo
She always mado so bright,
Hor childron reared a monument
That riches could not buy,
Tho wltnoss of a noble life,
Whoso record is on high.
? A noblo life, but written not
In any bookfof fame;
Among tho list of noted ones
None ovor saw her name,
For only hor household know
Tho vlct'rles shohad won;
And none but they could testify
How well hor work was done.

Oppressod with a heavy sonso of woo,
John Saggart stood In a dark corner of
the terminus, out of tho rays of the.
glittering aro lamps, and watched

managed, one of tho swiftest and most

The cry of " All aboard I" rang out
and was echoed down from tho nigh
arohed roof of tho groat torminus, and
John, with: a sigh, turned from his
contemplation of tho englno and wont
to take nls place on the train. It was
a long train, with many sleeping cars
at tho end of It, for tho heavy holiday
traffic was on, and people wero getting
out of town by tho hundred.
At last the flying train plunged into

the conductor as soon as he saw tho
face turned toward bin?. ? ?-f- hoard

"Oh, yes," said John. "We've
been in many a tight place togothor,
but we won't be any more. It's tough,
as you say. I'vo been fifteen years
with the company and seven on old
86, and at first it comos mighty hard.
But i suppose I'll got nsod to It."
"Look hore, John," said the con
ductor,-lowering his voice to a con
fidential ton i, " the prosidont of tho

How would It do to speak to him ? If
you're afraid to tackle him I'll put In a'
word for you in a mlnuto aud tell him

John Saggart shook his head.
"It wouldn't do," he said. "Ho
wouldn't over-rule what ono of his
subordinates had done, unless thoro
was serious injustice, in tho oaso. It's
the new manager, you know. Thero's

"It's bad enough not to know tho

He knew the seriousness of such a
thing. Even the fastest expresses

is the law.
"Doesn't that jay in front know

track and eaw glimmering in the dis
tance, like a faint, wavering star, the
head-light of No. 0. Looking down in
tho eab he took in tho situation at a
glance. The engineer, with foar in
his face and beads of perspiration on
his brow, was throwing his wholo
weight on tho lover, tho Uroman holp

KILIjHD BY A NEI?11IIOR.
A Prominent Farmer or Aikeu
County Shot Down Without Warn
Capt. J. M. Rhott was shot and in
stantly killed by Mr. Marion Toolc, a
neighbor of his on Friday aftornoon.
Capt. Rhett lives at his handsome
rosidence, "Sandhurst," at Rhott's
Station, about 6ovon miles eust of
Aikon, aud tho murder occurred on
the boundary lino between his farm
and chat of the man who shot him.
Toolc and Rhott had for somo tlmo
had some bad feollngs growing out of
and ruin in;;- ditch that was located on
tho lino botweon tho farms. Mr. Rhott
sent his ovorseor, James Ponnington,
to open tho ditoh. Ponnington re
turned and told Rhott that Toolo
would not allow him to opon it. Rhett
and Ponnington then wont togothor
to the, spot, and found Marlon Toolo and
his son John thero, both armed with
double barrel shot guns.
According to tho evidenco at tho
coroner .i inquest, the following con
versation then took placo : Mr. Rhott
said to Mr. Toolo : " Good morning."
Mr. Toole roplled : " I warn you and
your man not opon that drain." Mr.
Ithott roplied : " I will not touch any
thing on you land, but will do what I
do all on my own place."
Then turning to Pennington, he
said : " Move that board," and as ho
did Marion Toolo raised his gun to his
shoulder and fired the entire load of
buok shot Into his upper abdomen and
chest. Twenty-oight wounds woro
found on his body.

Wn.u>MHTON, il. C, Feb. 4.
To the Editor of The Stale:
A year ago, when the influenza or
grip was t*> prevalent, 1 noticed a
report on the disease from one of the
best hospitals of Europe. This hos
pital is in Ediuburg, Scotland. At
the hue of the report hundreds of
inlluenza cases had l>een treated
there. After lighting the epidemic
with varying success, a happy acci
dent led tho superintendent to udopt
an alkaline treatment with an ex
treme case that was brought in. A
, full dose of saleratns was given every
two hours. Although the patient
was in convulsions when brought in j
she became quieter a short time after j
tho lirst dose; and only three doses
were given before the patient was
clearly on the way to recovery. In
three days she was counted well.
This same simple treatment was then
followed with a thousand, not one of
whom died. Best of all, not only was
the influenza promptly cured, but
there was no unpleasant or danger
ous symptoms following recovery.
It has been observed that not more
die of tho influenza than of what
may follow it.
From somo work in my chemical
laboratory, carried on before this re
port came out, I had concluded that
tho influenza was at least associated
with excessive acidity of tlve, systerii,
if it was not cuuscd by this abnor
mal state. I was so certain of the
correctness of this view that on be
ing thrown in bed myself with the
inlluen/.a, I treated myself with
only alkaline drinks to counteract
the acid. The result was that in
stead of two or three weeks of puny
ness, I missed only one day from
The success with my own case was
so astonishing that 1 havo been
called to treat other cases; and of
about twenty-five treated very few
have had to give up work for more
than a day?some uot at all.
Not being a physician, I should
fool some hesitancy in offering my
cure, if after I had begun to try it,
it had not received the high testi
At first, I used the carbonate of
lit hin, which is the beAt? ot tha aUsa
Ul for the. Cttftjitte? But as my prac
tice (all charity) enlarged, I left so
expensive a drug, and contented my
self with the carbonate of poatsh and
soda. These I found practically as
good us the lithin.
For the sake of the suffering pub
lic, 1 would say that the dose I have
used for grown patients has been a
level teaspoonful of baking soda,
dissolved in plenty of water, taken
every two hours until soreness and
headache arc gone, and then one
extra dose for good measure. It is
not best to take a dose just before
or after eating. 1 have rarely found
more than four doses needed.
Since the system is in an acid
state, calomel is a very dangerous
medicine, and many deaths from in
lluenzu are, without reasonable
doubt, traceable to the use of calomel
in the disease.
It is interesting to note that, when
all else failed, our grandmothers
used to cure the worst colds with
"fire-coal tea." This was simply a
crude saleratns treatment. So there
is nothing new under the sun, and
our wise theory simply proves the
soundness of another of their old

The Way of One Poultry Woman.
Holen l . Ualloy, in Western Kural.
I rise to speak, and my theme shall
be of the one thing only that I pro
fess to understand, the management
of the heu. I have now 600 on the
place, and not an ailing one in the
lot. They are al?o free from vermin,
and are already beginning to moult.
One hundred and fifty of tho num
ber are hens, and besides raising 350
eh ick-, and using all the eggs we
desired, I have sold on the average
150 dozen eggs for every month since
Januaay. The food during the time
consisted of wheat, oats and rye
mixed, with a small mess of corn
once a day, and during tho early
months all the milk they could con
sume. But, let nie whisper it, in
the meantime they wore not left to
manage things their own way, but
tinder strict discipline and brought
up in the way thoy should go. As a
preveutativc of parasites and for the
sake of good health and pure odors,
their habitation and yards were kept
clean and raked and swept and White
washed) and the setting hens, eggs
and newly hatched chicks freely
sprinkled with insect powder. Every
hen inclined to set is straightway
daubed on the parts, most likely lo
be infected, with coal oil, and if she
Is still determined to set she will
prove one not likely to forsake the
nest when the eggs are given her.
But the most important secret and
the one having the strongest bearing
towards "luck" is that they were
given plenty of pure, cold water.
This, 1 contend, is far more essential
than food if they have a wide range,
and the oih thing needful to their
health, to *av nothing of comfort,
during tbfc hot weather. Yes, at
tention togletaiis is what counts, so
do not" expect to sit at your ease and
at the same time reap a rich reward
from the chicken business. If you
arc really concerned for their well
being and want them to thrive and
your pocket-book to grow fat, you
will constitute yourself doctor and
generalissimo of the whole manage
ment. You will have a hospital
where the wounded or t e ailing may
receive their just and timely cure,
and to relieve the most common you
will rub fresh wounds with pure lard
und turpentine, roup you will treat,
twice a day with a mixture of grease
and kerosene over the head and in
the mouth. For lice you will keep
a clean house und nests, plenty of

Killing: Children's Sig:ht.
Never let your children read or
st udy in a room where there is not
plenty of light. Light is the best
food of the eye. Visit the school
room and sec to it that your child's
desk is in a position where he will
not have to strain his eyes and use
them up before adult age conies on.
Plenty of physical exercise between
hours of study is a good thing for
the eyes us well as for the rest of the
In the French public schools 24.2
per cent, of the scholars arc short
sighted ; in the German, 35 percent.,
and in the English only 20 per cent.
According to M. Martin, in the
Journal de Medicine de Bordeaux, the
percentage is highest in the rhetoric
and philosophy classes. The hy
gienic condition of the school does
not scorn to affect the percentage, and
he thinks the want of physical exer
cise is the cause of the trouble. By
modifying the work of the classes
the proportion of shortsighted schol
ars at the College of OJiessen has fal
len from 20.G to 17 per cent, in live
years. M. Martin recommends reas
onable periods of physical exercise
between the hours of study. While
preventing shortsightedness, these
will not detract from the proficiency
of the scholar.
When to Cut Bushes.
Any time is a good ono to cut
bushes to destroy the growth. If
the leaves can be prevented from
growing one season, the bushes will
die; but otherwise they way be cut
down to the roots for a lifetime, and
every spring they will sprout again.
The cutting should begin at once
and as fast as new sprouts appear
those should be removed. But the
most effective way to rid the laud of
any kind of brush is to take it out
by the roots by means of a heavy
plow and a mattock, it is more
work at the beginning, but a saving
in the end.
People who are living to learn and
profit thereby will not be offended at
U. L. Corbly, in Farm Reporter.
By studying the many errors of
the farms, I find one of the most
important at present is, we try to
cultivate too much land, hence get
iu more grain than we can well man
age to make it a success for both land
aud the producer. For an example,
we get often potatoes of a new aud
good variety. We solect a place in
which to plant them. We manure
aud prepare the ground in an excel
lent way, plant and cultivate them
as though we were raising silver dol
lars. When digging time comes, we
are surprised to sec the quantity and
quality we have from only a few,
while our large patches are only a
half crop ; we thought we had not
time to cultivate them as we did our
How often does the farmer plant
his corn when he ought to harrow
his ground over again? How often
do we hurry our wheat in, and half
do it, because our neighbor is done
sowing? How often do we half do
things on the farm, because other
things are crowding us, and we have
not rightly managed? 1 have
learned by experience " if we do not
push our work, it will push us."
Therefore, to those who will see this
article, (if it appears in print) 1
would say study the farm to make
is a more pecuniary success, more ef
fective, and I assure you the farm
work will be more pleasant.
A NARROW ESCAPE!
How it Happened.
Tho following remarkable event In a lady*|
Ufo will interest tho reader: "Fora long time I
ha<l a terrible pain at my heart, which flut
tered nlmost lucessautly. I had no appetite
nnd could not sleep. I would bo compelled
to sit up In bod and belch gas from my stom
ach until I thought every mlnuto would bo
my last. Thero was a fooling of oppression
nliout my heart, and I was afraid to draw a
full bronth. 1 couldn't 6weop a room with
out Hitting down and resting; but, thank
(?od, by the help of New Heart Ouro all that
Is past and I feel liko another woman,' Ilc
foro using the Now lloart Curo I had taken
different Bo-called remedies and bcBn treated

C'uro, and am happy to say I novcr regretted
it, ns 1 now have a splendid appetite and
sleep well. I weighed li"; pounds when I be
gun taking tho remedy, nnd nowIwclghlW/t.
Its effect In my caso has been truly marvel
ous. It far surpasses any othor mcdlcluo I
havo ever taken or any benefit I over re
ceived from physicians."?Mm. Harry Starr,
