a great improvement would be made in the condition of horses and
other animals if just the proper remedy were used when they became
ill or injured. If your horse could talk he would ask you not to use
any external remedy containing alcohol because it slings and tortures
his flesh terribly. Some liniments have alcohol and other fiery
ingredients which only inflame the skin and tissue without striking
down to where the pain lies. Beware of such liniments. The great
humane, quick-action remedy is MEXICAN MUSTANG LINlMENT.
Made of oils, without a drop of alcohol or other torturing element, it
soaks straight to the bone and muscle. It soothes the wounded parts
and is comforting while the healing work is progressing. Mexican
Mustang Liniment is what you want because it
your work lighter, saves your livestock from suffering and keeps them
in good trim for work. For all forms of Lameness, Strains, Bruises,
Cuts, I hums, Galls and Harness Sores in animals, it is safe and
prompt and does not promise what it cannot perform. Mustang
Liniment has been doing its wonderful healing work for 65 years.
The amount of money it has saved livestock owners is incalculable.
One man writes that he was about to kill his valuable horse because
badly injured but Mustang Liniment made him well again. A Vet
erinary tells us he has used Mustang Liniment fifteen years and
found it best liniment for cuts, strains, etc. And many others arc
enthusiastic friends of this tried and tvue remedy. Now you know
just what makes
Horses so Happy.

covers the division by color, sex, placo
of nativity and comparative literacy
and also of illiteracy and age. It
also takes up the martal conditions
of the population over 15 years of
The division by color shows that
since 1900 thero has been an appre
ciable lncreaso in the proportion of
whites, duo of courso to a number
of causes. The result is that of the
entire 1,515,004 people in the State,
the proportion of whites is 44.8,
against 41.6 in 1900. The number
of 'Whites in 1910 was given as 679,161.
Of negroes the number is 835,843, a
percentage of 55.2 as against a per
centage of 58.4 In 1900.
There are more females than males
in South Carolina?the number be
ing 763,558 against 751,842. Among
the whites, however, the proportion
is reversed, thero being 102.4 white
men for every 100 white women.

Only half the population of school

As a corollary of this the illiteracy

The census bureau counts in the
class of illiterates, of whom there
aro 276,980 in South Carolina, any
one of over 10 years who is unable
to write, even though ho be able to
read. The rate of illiteracy, how
ever, shows a decrease from 1900, the
percentage in that year being 35.9.
This bulletin was prepared under
the supervision of Win. C. Hunt, chief
statistician for population. Statistics
of color, nativity, parentage, sex, State
of birth, citizenship, age, illiteracy,
school attendance, marital condition,

and for wards of Charleston, the only
city of more than 50,000 lnhavltants.
