Pretty Lot of Mules,
Even Experts Trlolced la Dlstfn
? uIhIiIhu' Real From tue Sparion?*
Dr. Oliver Tuuks In the Outlook Mag
azine shows the dlfllcultles of distin
guishing real from spurious antiquities.
Here is one of his anecdotes:
At times the forger Is content to take
ancient fragments of ancient vases or
statuettes and complete them with clay
or plaster of parls. These new "old"
wares lie then paints up and passes to
the unsuspecting, and sometimes sus
pecting, purchaser as real antiques.
The story is told of a forger In Athens
that he protested that when he had fin
ished "Improving" an antique he him
self could not always tell where the
genuine part ceased and the false be
gan. Under such circumstances It
may not bo wondered that at times
even experts are tricked.
The following incident shows how
forgeries turn up in very unexpected
places: One hot day a party of us were
toiling up a steep ascent in the Island
of Mclos when wo saw above us a
number of < .'reeks seated on a parapet
of ruins. Wo had been cruising long
enough among the /Egcan Islands to
know that these people of the place had
seen our ship drop anchor In tbo water
below and were now waiting to sell us
antiquities, At tho sight of the?e
Greeks one of our number, a tlrelejs
Scotchwoman, scrambled ahead of us
to the top, whore we-could soon see
her, wind hlown and outlined against
the blue sky, bargaining for a vaae.
When we ranched the top after a more
leisurely climb she put her purchase In
my hands and asked me what I thought
of It. My hands were moist with per
uplratlon from the exertion of the climb,
and for answer to her question I held
them out to her all blackened from,
grasping the vase. The sweat had at*
tacked the modern paint with whloh It
was covered, and by thus coming off
on my hands the color had betrayed its
falsity. The whole vase had been
patched up from six or seven pieces
and then painted over to conceal the

Blind See In Dream*.
Harvey, who discovered the circula

corded a dream in which a bumblebee
stung him In his left thigh, on a place

nowned French author, found himself
In a dream attacked by a rowdy, who
stabbed blm in his left breast with a
dagger in an urea whero the following
evening he felt tho first attack of se
vere pneumonia. "The archives of
medical reports," says Dr. Axel Kmtl
Cilmon, "are heavy with cases of a
similar character, which have either
received no explanation at all r?r else
ha'.e been explained away entirely."
Dr. Gibson calls attention to the fact
that dreams depend on some other
media than those known as the five
senses. A conclusive evidence In fa
vor of this view is found In the cir
cumstances that even the blind are
ablo to see In dreams, as witness ex
periences recorded by Helon Keller,

unavoidable that it i* only, as far as

This same author arrives at the de
duction that dreaming and waking dif
fer in degree and form of manifesta
tion only, not in principle and essence.
"Like waking consciousness," he avers,
"the dream reveals, but does not cre
ate. The same world that surrounds
the wakiug Individual surrounds the
droamlng, only the viewpoints and
media of observation are changed."?

"Some old fellow over at Fort Sill
who has been La this section of the
country for a good many years ouco
dreamed that thero was an Indian
massacre on the summit of Slgual
mountain. He afterward began to tell
that dream, and at length told the sto
ry for the truth. That dream has gone
down In history as an actual fact.
There never was a massacre on this
mountain, nor even a battle of any
sort. In early days, after tbe establish

A New Magazine for You
I am bringing out another new magazine that you will come pretty close to
liking. I wouldn't be surprised if it hit you harder than anything in the
shape of a magazine you have ever seen. There isn't much style to it, but it
has the stuff in it that you and everybody else will want to read. It is called
Something New in Magazine Making
THK SCRAP BOOK is the most elastic thing that ever happened in the way of a
magazine?elastic enough to carry anything from a tin whistle to a battleship. Every
thing that appeals to the human brain and human heart comes within its compass?fiction,
which is the backbone of periodical circulation; biography, review, philosophy, science,
art, poetry, wit, humor, pathos, satire, the weird, the mystical?everything that can be
classified and everything that cannot be classified. A paragraph, a little bit, a saying,
an editorial, a joke, a maxim, an epigram.
Nothing Like It in the World
There isn't anything in the world just like THlv SCRAP BOOK. It is an idea on
which we have been working for several years, and for which we have been gathering
materials. We have bought hundreds and hundreds of scrap books from all over the
country, some of them a century old, and arc still buying them. From these books we
are gathering and classifying an enormous number of gems, and facts and figures, and
historical and personal bits that arc of rare value. Furthermore, we have a corps of peo
ple ransacking libraries, reading all the current publications, the leading daily papers,
and digging out curious and quaint facts and useful facts and figures from reference book,
cyclopedia, etc., etc.
Don't fail to get a copy of this first issue of THE SCRAP
BOOK. It sells at the price at which all our other maga

It is scarcely necessary to lay stress on the superiority of the Royster Fertilizer.
Those who have used it willingly testify to its merits, as follows:
Oka, S. C.. November 17th, 1905.
Dr. W. C. Irby, Agent F. S. Royster Guano Co., Laurens, S. C.
Dear Sir:?Replying to your inquiry of recent date in regar d to the result of my ex
perience with Royster's Fertilizers for this year, I beg to advise that last Spring 1 bought
of your Royster's Atlantic Brand, and 011 two acres I used 1,000 pounds per acre, preparing
the land thoroughly, putting in all the Fertilizer at one time and sub-soiling after putting
in the Fertilizer. I secured a yield of six bales on the two acres. On seven other acres,
similarly prepared, with the same amount of Fertilizer, I secured a yield of fifteen bales.
The analysis of the Fertilizer used was 8-3-3. The average weight of these bales of cotton
was 425 pounds. It is needless to say that the seasons this year were very favorable, and I
gave the cultivation of this cotton special attention, and that the land had been brought up
to a high state of cultivation.
(Signed) W. J. FLEMING.
Dr. W. C. Irby, Laurens, S. C.
Dear Sir:?In reply to yours of recent date, we beg leave to say that wf. have used
Royster's Fertilizers exclusively for the last four years. The results have been most satis
factory. We believe them to be the best goods we have ever used. Farmers' Bone is the
brand of ammoniated goods we have used, and we consider Royster's 10-4 Acid as good
as the average standard guano.
W. II. HUDGKNS.
J. A. P. MOORK,
Where the eye can detect the difference in Fertilizers, the yield by the use of Roys
ters is increased more than a hundred pounds to the acre. It is to the interest of the farmer
to get the best, and it has been demonstrated that the Royster brand produces the largest
yield?the best proof that you ought to
Use the Best Fertilizer, Namely, Royster's.
