THE LAST ROLL CALL.
[by a veteran.]
To My Old Comrades of the Confederacy:
Again we corac together to answer to tho roll call. Many a time
that roll of honor has boon called, on Holds of earthly glory. Hun
dreds of thousands of tho names of heroic men have boon transferred
from earth to a fairor country. They fell by our side in tho thick of
tho fight, or expired in prisons, camps and hospitals. It is well to
honor their memory and celebrate their heroic deeds for tho Lost
But tho ranks grow thinner still, as timo sweeps down those
whom God's mercy spared the death of the battlefield.
And those which yet remain to answer to tho roll-call of veterans
carry with them the marks of their glorious achievements.
These badges of earthly honor and glory'aro also evidences of the
Divine mercy which has spared and preserved.
Let us reflect upon tho goodnoss of God, which has spared us for
other service and lot us sanctify our remaining days to tho service of
tho Lord of all, that when tho roll is called in heaven, wo shall no
longer stand in decimated and ever diminishing ranks; but shall enter
a joyful reunion and delight in an oternal comradeship with thoso
who fought a good fight and kept tho faith.
When the Roll is Call Up Yonder.
When tho trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and timo shall bo no
And tho morning broaks eternal, bright and fair;
When tho saved of earth shall gather over on tho other shore,
And tho roll is called up yonder, I'll bo thoro,
Chorus.?When tho roll is called up yonder,
When tho roll is called up yonder,
When the roll is called up yonder,
When the roll is called up yonder, I'll bo there.
On that bright and cloudless morning, when tho dead in Christ
And the glory of his resurrection share;
When his chosen ones shall gather to tholr homo boyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll bo there.
Lot us labor for tho Master from tho dawn till sotting sun,
Lot us talk of all his wondrous lovo and care.
Then, when all of lifo is over, and our work on earth is done,
And tho roll is callod up yonder, I'll bo thoro.

WHITE STONE LITHIA WATER
Is tho lightest water on the market. We realize that this is claiming a

of a Mineral Water. When carbonating a minoral wator, if it is a hard water
tho gases will not bo absorbed In the water, and when the bottle is oponed, the

After a sorvice of ono soason at

that the effect of the wator upon thoso
who drink it for any length of timo,
has boon perfectly marvelous. Invari
ably an increase both in flosh and ap
petite was perceptible in ono week,
proving it to be a mineral wator of
undoubted powerful tonic property. Its
peculiar adaptability to diseases origi
nating from disorders of the kidnoy,
bladder and liver, such as Dropsy,
Bright's disease, Diabetes and uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism and Gout, is to bo ex

as been noted frequently that visi
tors before coming hero had to follow
every meal with somo form of correc

predlgestcd foods: soon discard these
entirely, boing delighted to find that
the water alone?nature's own remedy
sufficed. Of the many who drank this
water this season for ten day consecu
tively, not one but experienced decided
benefit and a perceptible gain in weight,
varying from two to five pounds.

That's What "Old Gorgon Graham"
fYoro "LetUm From a Mf Mndo Mer
chant to Hi* Son," by Georg?
Now, I want to give you that tip on
the inurket. There are several reasons
why It Isn't snfo for you to trade on
'change Just now, but the particular
one is that Graham St Co. will Are you
if you do. Trading on margin is a good
deal like paddling around tho edge of
the old swimming hole?It seems safe
and ensy at first, Mat before a follow
knows it he bos stepped off tho edge
Into deep water. The wheat pit Is ouly
thirty feet across, but it reaches clear
down to holl. And trading on margins
means trading on the ragged edge of
nothing. When a man buys, he's bay
ing something that the other fellow
hasn't got. When a man soils, he's sell
ing something that ho hasn't got And
ifs been my experience that tho net
profit on nothing is nit. When a specu
lator wins, bo don't stop till he loses,
and when he loses ho can't stop till ho
You hnvo been in the packing busi
ness long enough now to know that It
takes a bull thirty seconds to lose bit
hide; and if you'll believe me when I
tell you that they can skin a bear just
as quick on 'change, you won't have a
board of trade Indian using your pelt
for a rug during tho long winter
Because you are the son of a pork
packer you may think that you know a
little more Ihnn the next fellow about
paper pork. There's nothing In It. The
poorest men on earth arc the relations
of millionaires. When I sell futures on
'change they're against bogs that are
traveling Into dry salt at the rate of
one a second, and if the market goes
up on me I've got the solid meat to de
liver. Hut, If you lose, the only pnrt of
tho bog which you can deliver Is the
I wouldn't bear down so bard on this
matter If money was tho only thing
that a follow could lose on 'change.
But if a clerk sells pork and the mar
ket goes down he's mighty apt to get a
lot of Ideas with holes in them and
bad habits as the small change of his
profits. And if tho market goes up bo's
likely to go short his self respect to
win back his monoy.
I dwell a little on this matter of spec
ulation because you've got to live next
door to tho hoard of trade oil your life,
and it's a safe thing to know something
about a neighbor's dogs before you try
to pat them. Sure Things, Straight
Tips and Dead Cinches will come run
ning out to meet you, wagging their
tails and looking as Innocent as if they
hadn't just killed a lamb, but they'll
bite. The only safe road to follow in
speculation leads straight away from
the board of trade on tho dead run.
Of course the board of trade and ev
ery other commercial exchange have
their legitimate uses, but all you need
to know just now Is that speculation
by a fellow who never owns moro pork
at a time than ho sees on his breakfast
plate isn't ono of them. When you be
come a packer you may go on 'change
as a trader; until then you can go there
only as a sucker.
BOYS AND PUPS
Sometime* the Likely One? Turn Out
Boys are a good deal llko the pups
that fellows soli on street corners
they don't always turn out as repre
sented. You buy n likely setter pup
and raise a spotted coach dog from it,
and tho promising son of an honest
butcher is Just ns like os not to turn
out a poet or a professor. I want to
say in passing that I have no real
prejudice against poets, but I believe
that If you're going to be a Milton
there's nothing like being a mute, In
glorious one, as some follow who was
a little sore on tho poetry business
once put it. Of course a packer who
understands something about the ver
satility of cottonseed oil need novor
turn down orders for lard becauso the
run of hogs Is light, and a father who
understands human naturo can turn
out an Imitation parson from a boy
whom tho Lord Intended to go on the
board of trade. But on general prin
ciples It's best to give your cottonseed
oll n Latin namo and to market It on
Its merits and to let your boy follow
bis bent, even If It loads him Into tho
wheat pit.?From "Letters From a
Self Made Merchant to His Son," by
George Horace Lorimer.

Knowing the prominent position he

are now taking in the manufacturing
interests of our County and Stite, I
sond you a clipping from the Bunny
South, showing that nearly two cen
turies ago, an energetic an 1 public
spirited lady, who may be an ances

velop both tho agricultural and manu
facturing Interests of our State. I

thought your roaders would also. I
send it to you and you can use your
pleasure concerning it. I say all honor
to the noble lady, who took such an ac

"Towards tho clo3e of the seven
teenth century Mr. Lucas, a wealthy
English plantor, residing at the time
on Bermuda Island, sent to his niece,
Miss Eliza I/ioas, of Georgetown, io
the colony of South Carolina, a small
quanity of Indigo seed, accompanying
his gift with full instructions as to the
cultivation of tho plant and the pre
paration of the seed for use as a dye
and for export. Shortly after Mr.
Lucas sent a servant who wus regarded
as an expert in tho matter to supervise
the planting of this small indigo farm.
For Homo reason this person turned re*
orcant, to the task confided to Ulm?
Miss Lucas, becoming aware of bis in
difference and assurca that ho was nob
following thu instructions ol bor unole,
as contained In his letter to her, dis
missed the export and undertook her
self the. management. She was a wo
man of remarkable energy and Eound
judgment, noted even In that day for
her fondness for agriculture and domes
tic virtues. Under hor skillful super
vision the first crop of indigo cultivated
in tho colonies of America was grown
and prepared for market, much to the
satisfaction of her lordly uncle, who
shortly afterwards left the Bermudas
and established tho Lucas family of
South Carolina, a representative peo
ple who to this day maintain the fond
ness of their ancestors for agricultural
"It was this spirited young Carolina
lady who Introduced tho growing of
silk into the colony. She imported the
white mulborry (monis multicaulis)
from India, obtained the eggs of the
r.:!k worm from France, and in process
of time had spun a quality of silk from
her home grown coeoms. This was
wa9 woven by Miss Lucas into three
handsome gowns. One of black was
sent to the king of England, another
presonted to Lord Chesterfield, and tho
third kept as a souvenir of her success
ful experiment. Tho last one is still
in tho possession of the decendants of
tho Lucas family, and at this writing I
am informed, Is in the possession of the
Pinckney family of Charloston, S. C."
