Ice Water in Hot Weather.
In reviewing the parade on Mem

itjon ^ attributed the attack,
whulilie called acute indigestion,

tary window killed himself by
drinking ice water at the close of
hin speech before the Chamber of
Commerce. No person when heated
should swallow ice water until (he
heat of his mouth has taken the
chill from the water.
Sumo years ago tho opinions of
about thirty physicians were given.
A little less than half said the use
of iee water by persons who arc
heated is dangerous; the other half
Said it is not so?a fair statement of
the diversity among physicians col
Icuted in that way. But that any
person who understands physiology,
especially the relation of the[Sympa
thetic system to the brain, and
, through it to the lungs and hearty
can believe that pouring water at a
temperature of a littlo above thirty
two degrees into the stomach, the
'jioriuul temperature of which- is
neatly ane hundred, can he other
wise than dangerous [and especially
milk, which, whether used excessive
ly hot or excessively cold, produces a
more powerful effect than water at the
same temperature], simply shows that
kimwledge has much less influence
up?ii opinion and practice than is
Ice water, other iced drinks, and
ice cream, taken slowly and in mod
erate quantity when one has partly
cooled, ate not injurious. That some
constitutions can endure ioe water

except fnvnl strength. No sensible

such matters as this.
1 have always remombored the
remark of a singing-school teacher
under whoso instruction I sat when
young. Ho was at that time a large,
Itrong man with full chest, hut in
giving his pupils the advice to
practice deep breathing, declared
thai he had been-at one time a con
sumptive, and had cured himself by
deep breathing. I have followed
his advice more or less, and credit
the health and soundness of my
lungs partly to that, and no doubt
my entire freedom from sickness for
many years is in part due to this
1 would not claim for deep breath
ing what many of its admirers do.
It. is not a universal panacea, but
lung and heart diseases, and even
dyscpeptsia, may he greatly helped
By it, not to speak of its excellence
as a preventive. There are poison
ous exhalations in the lower lungs
which, if allowed to remain must
not only affect the lungs where they
are, but will get into the. blood, and
thus poison more or less the whole
system. Deep breathing not only
carries off t his cause of malaria from
the lower lung, but supplies in its
place the oxygen which the system
needs for the disposition of waste
matter in other parts of the body.
It should go without saying that
the air must be pure or it may carry
poison into the 'lungs while it is
carrying the exhalation away. Be
not frightened if when you first try
the expel iment, you become a little
dizzy. ?s- an elocutionist used to
?tei+-as,.it is only a surprise to your
lungs which., they do not at first

'?Be Good to Yourself.
This is a common admonition,
and it is full of important meaning.
A man should take as good care of
himself us he does of lus horse; but
how few do this! If you do not
take caro of yourself, no one can
take care of you. Take care of your
body. Consider its needs. "Make
up your mind (irmly not abuse it.
*f| at .nothing that will hurt it; wear
nothing which distorts or pains it.
Do not overload it with victuals, or
drink, or work. Give yourself reg
ular and abundant sleep. Keep
your body warmly clad. At the
Ii i st. signal of danger from any of
the thousand enemies which sur
round you, defend yourself, Do not
ake cold ; guard yourself against it;
if you feel the flri?t symptoms, give
yourself heroic treatment; get into a
line glow of heat by exercise. This is
the only body you will ever have in
this world. A large share of pleas
ure and pain or life will come
through the ubo you make of it.
Study deeply and diligently the
hI incline of it, the laws which
"govern it, (he-pains and penalties
which will surely follow u violation
of every law of life and health."

Tin; Farmer's Boy.?" 1 agree
with Charles Dudley Warner that a
farm without a boy would quiekly
come to grief," said Peter .J. Mills
don. "Just stop and consider for
a moment what ahoy on a farm is
required to do. It is understood; in
I he flrs ( place, t hat he is to do all the
efrands?to go to the store, to the
post office, and to carry all sorts of
messages. If he had us many legs

opinion that ' every one of them!

Typhoid Kkyku and Society.?
Typhoid fever, like death, is no re
specter of persob.i. A lay journal
laments the fuct that this very dem
ocratic disease has attacked several
members of " society " during tho
pas] fall, and has thereby interfered
sadly with many high sociul func
tions. Dr. Samuel Wilks, in a
recent address, asserts that typhoid
fever seems to need no socially
adapted soil, bnt seizes upon the
vigorous und healthy us quickly as
upon the weak. This is the general
experience, though as age increases
some immunity is experienced. Most
intelligent persons nowadays know
that typhoid is communicated
through what we eat and especially
through what we drink. In the
houses of the intelligent and of the
wealthy, and in many well con
ducted hotels, sterile' waters are
largely provided. Yet the disease
continues to affect the rich and the
pogr. This only shows that the
watchfulness is not complete
enough; it is easy to forget
\vls?n the enemy is a subtle and in
visible one, and one that lurks in
dark and unexpected places, as dp

When the steamer Birkenhead with
a regiment of soldiers or. board,
struck upon a rock on the coast of
Africa, it was thought from the mo
ment of the first rasp and shock that
it could not keep together many
minutes, and orders were given to fit
the emergency. The roll of the
drum called the soldiers to arms on>
the upper deck. It was promptby'

were got out, first for the women and
children, next for the other passen
gers?no boats left for them! There
they stood, firm and culm, waiting a
watery grave.The boats
pulled off in safety, but on that
solemn deck the soldiers still kept
their ranks motionless and silent.
Then down went the ship, and down
with it went the heroes, shoulder to

THE Mouth.?If people would
wash out their mouths twice or
three times a. day with an antiseptic
solution, there would not be near so
much 'sickness. A physician says :
" I have never hud a cold, sore
throat or.'"fever, and 1 ascribe this
immunity solely to the fact that I
follow this plan rigidly. There are
any number of proprietary antisep

The following letter from Prof. J. F.
C. UuPre, of Clemson College," oou
taius seasonable information fei* the
Cr.k.mson Collkob, S.dO., Juue24, 18t)5.:
My Dear Sir:?-Replyiug to yours,
of the 18th inst., I beg to say that the
question of how to sucoeod in raising
a sooond or fall crop of Irish potatoes
has not been definitely settled. " Tho
best laid sohemes of mice and men,"
etc., u plan that succeeds one year .may
fall the .next. A great deal depends
upon the seasons. "There can tu? no
doubt that when successful the second
crop is the better, and It Is decidedly
the best for seed for spring planting.
In roply to one of your questions, I
quote from tray) Bulletin No. 0, issued
in March, 180.1, by thlsSWtfoo.:, "The
great ditlleulty is In getting a stand
early enough for the plant to mature
before frost. This can usually bo had
(a) by bedding, out the potatoes just
after digging, as you would sweet
potatoes, except that you need no
manure, and keep the bed dump, (bj
Spread tho potatoes close-together on
an oven surface and cover two to three
inches deep witn hay, straw or pine
noodles, arid keep them moist, (c)
Spread them In the shade, where tue
morning sun only cai. reach them ;
let thein remain until they begin to
sprou*. In any case plant only whole
potatoes ; and not until tho eyoB show
signs of gerinluation, cover very shal
low, say half inch to one inch deep."
1 can add very little tq the above
advice, except to correct what may be
an on or. The advice to plant '* whole
potatoes only " was based upon~my own
practice and the opinion of many olo
and successful potato raisers, thej
?laving stated that they had'frequently
tried cutting tne. poiutoo lor a second
crop, und every instance bad failed
In 1893, niter this Bulletin was
published, a friend of mine living on
the college grnnuls, being short ol
seed, cut nis potatoes to one and-two
eyes. He planted at the same time
thut I did, bis seed were cut, mlnn
wero whole. The result was that his
came up to a good stand and mado a
good crop, while mlhe lay dormant
until near frost, in faot, some of them
until after frost, and made nothing.
Neither of these were sprouted.
In 1804,1 bedded out as In B" and
as in "C." After the potatoes had
sprouted or started to sproqfj*! planted
both klpds, whole, but took some of
each and OUt to One and IWO eyes.
They were all planted within two days.

over a.hundred bushels to the acre;
so ytw I dig, this season,. I will im
mediately plant another crop of wholej

or t he corner of a hoe, leaving top of j
ridge below the level of the genoral
surface. At the. llrst working, this j
lurrow will bo filled, and in so doing
the plant will bo hilled.

twelve to fourteen, always 'tiuUjt the

Up. the early kind may make even a
half crop, while the late variety would
muke nothing. The same variety
planted in July or August will mature
a woek to teu days earlier, tbau when
planted In Febuary or March.
1 havo just planted half a peek of &
new klud that, it is said, never falls to
grow, and will continue tri grow until
fro-,t, and will keep, without sprouting
until the next June or July, and be
roudy for another late crop, I am
looking forward with great interest to
the result of this oxpeiTmont.

self-supporting. lint. La our iiutnble
judgment, the palm must be given to
tho Southern girls and women - for
beauty'of form and for excellouce in
feminine graces. I do nut belong to
tbut cloos of men who are disturbed
about tho " women's coming to the
front," but tho question what are the
men going to do in the future, say last
half of tho 20th century, begins to stir
my fancy. Herein the Summer School
wliero lectures are given for advanced
students, the women are nearly three
to one. Many of thorn, however, are
res.dents and not proficients.
The women ought to havo access
to every laudable opening for their
improvement ami advancement. The
groat body of .them will be true to
choir sex in spite of ohauglng circum
stances and a wider n'-ena for lifo. As
?boy are more iuduutrious than men

'The Supremo Court has finally dis
missed tho registration law test- case
unlit led Matthew C. Butler against W.
H. Eiloibo, comptroller general of the
State of South Carolina, aud W. T. C.
Bates, treasurer of the State of South
Carolina. This is the case brought by
General Sutler at the Novombor tei m,
loUl, of the Supreme Court, to test tho
constitutionality of the registration
laws of the State. The oaso was heard
on tho 3rd of last December.
.1 ustle.es Pope and Gary,- a majority o"
the court, decide that thoy navo no
jurisdiction, while Chief Justice Mo
Ivor not only disagrees on that subject
hut proceeds to declare the law un
constitutional. Tho decision comes a
little late to create much Interest, but

Tbe decision of tho Court Is an
nounced by Justice Clary. Tho general
propositions arguod by him at lougth
and for which he quotes numerous
authorities, are as follows :
First, This is a suit against the
State in olToot.
Second, The Stato Is an indispensa
ble party to tbe notion.
Third, The question of the constitu

Fourth. If thu Stuto could be sued,
ihe would bo estopped from intorpos
Ing the objection that the services
roudered at her instance, and for her
benefit wero illegal. The appropria
tion shows that tho Stato desires the
payment of such services. Equity will
not, therefore, loud its aid tu compel
cho State indirectly through tho de
fendants, as her fiscal olllcei ., to do that
which thu State could not be com pel led
to do in a direct proceeding.
Justice Pope lu rendering his decis
ion said that the delay, in the judg
ment of tho court Is owing to his
failure to write this separate opinion
at an earlier dato. When grave oon
itlttitioual questions are to be passed
upon, unless there is Impel atlvo
necessity that there should bo no

Chief Justice Mel vor evidently
wrote his oplniou first, for after argu
ing that the law was unconstitutional,
be takes up sorcatlm his objections
to the opinions Of his brethren as to
tho pointy stated by them. As to bis
views on the constutionallty of the
law the following is a synopsis fur
nished by a lawyer thoroughly?fam iiiur
with the case:
Tho Chief Justice aunounoos the
conclusions that ho arrives at on tho
merits of tho oontrovorsy, namely, the
constitutionality of the registration
law. Ho says in substance that these
enactments are in violation of sundry
provisions of the State uohstutlon, all
of which he enumerates. ^He holds
that tho many provisions ana require
ments sot forth in tho registration
laws us prerequisites to tho right of
ballot are burdensome ana unequal
and could not have been IntondedTO
merely regulate tho right of suffrage,
but upouYbfe vy-mu-o-y, Vitt.**,iie.i'at the
provisions of tho law is to abridge aud
impede tli? citizen iu registering and
voting. Uo says that all registration
laws to be constitutional must have for
their purpose tho regulation of the
suffrage aiid their province should be
to faollltate und not to disuourago reg
He holds that the dosing of books
on July 1 and allowing no provision for
registration except for minors between
July 1 and election day was, also, un
constitutional. Also, that the scheme
of the . Act which is to have but one
general, .original registration is con
trary to t he, section of the constitution
whieo requires registration from time
to time. He, also, holds that the cer
tificate feature of the Act iu_en*uot re
quires doublo registration'' uamoly,
that voters must be both registered on
the books and have certificates to pro
sent at the polls' in contravention of
the State Constitution. Ho also points
out various other portions of tho Act
that are constitutionally obnoxious, and
says that there are so many provisions
of the law that are uueonstitutionul
w iiich are so interwoven with others
that are not void that tho whole Act
tuiiot be declared unconstitutional.
The opinions of tho other Justices
as *.o jurisdiction having been sub
mitted to tho Chief Justice, ho in a
subsequent opinion takes up their
views, lie contends that it is not an
action against tho State because it
would hot Injuriously affect any proil
erty or property rig tits ot the state.
He consldeis it a question whon the
constitutionality of un Act should be
decided upon, and this is oue of thoiu
in that it Intends to retrain olllcors
from applying public funds for an il
legal'purpose. Any taxpayer, bo 1 O
elector or a female, has a right to
bring un uction to prevent such action.
What ether remedy a taxpayer would
have to prevent an Illegal diversion oi
public funds by fiscal officers of the
government, otherwise than that taken,
ho was at a loss to conceive of. The
fund to be paid out had been properly
collooted and placed In the treasury
