HUSBAND AND WIFE BOTH
SAVED FROM SUFFERING
I wish to tell you the good results
myself and husband received fro mDr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. About eleven
years ago I had a severe attack of La
Grippe and was confined to my bed
about eight weeks under the doctor's
care. He pronounced my case kidney
trouble and rheumatism and not re
ceiving the results from the doctor's
treatment I should have reneived, I
decided to try Swmp-Root. After tak
ing several bottles of Swam;,-Root I
was able to got up and attend to my
work. About a year later my husband
was pffecled with a severe attack of
kidney trouble and doctored for some
time with the doctors and received no
benefit. Knowing of tha good I had
received he decided to try Swamp
Root, His condition was such that he
was confined to his bed and words
cannot tell how he suffered, but after
taking Swamp-Root he was relieved
so he could go on with his work with
out pain. I wish ti heartily recom
mend Swamp-Root to all persons af
flicted with kidney and bladder trou
bles and you may publish this letter

HOME MEMORIES MEAN MUCH
Duty of Parents to Give Children
Something Which They May Re.

Happy home memories to look back
upon is a gift which every mother
should plan as definitely to give to her
child as she plans definitely to give
him an education, sound health and
First of all, then, it seems to me
we owe our children memories of a
beautiful home; a home of simple com
mon sense; a well-ordered home. This
would seem to me a child's very first
And next, it seems to me, he has the
right to memories of beauty in the
home. Children are far more suscep
tible to beauty than many of us real.
ize, and certainly the effect of beauty
on the child's life can hardly be over
Further, home to be a delightful
memory must have the beauty of so
ciability. It must be a place where
people come to share its benefits, and
its ideals. That home can hardly be
called a home 'which does not open,
its doors often.
Desides being a healthful place, a
peautiful place, a sociable home, if
/it is to afford us enriching memo
ries, must be an intimate and sympa
thetic place, possessing that finer in
timate sociability which .grows up be
tween the true home and its inmates.
In all right living and thinking we
are partakers of a kind of immortality,
for death does not touch these things.

PLAN VACATION FOR HEALTH
Period of Release From Toli Should
Be Wisely Spent, or it is Worse
Ostensibly you go on a vacation to
and or to improve your health, re
marks the Philadelphia Evening Ledg.
er. But how many achieve it? To
most of us a vacation is a respite
from toil, witi a license to overeat,
oversleep and overdo everything that
we take in normal doses during the
period-of hard labor. Who is there who
hasn't returned from a vacation
spoiled by indigestion, excessive play
or a lazy indulgence in doing nothing,
with the conviction that the pleasures
and increased health he expected to
find were a delusion?
Tho best vacation is not so much
freedom from the necessity of work
ing as it is a change, new scenes, new
people, new ideas, all taken in mod
eration. As such they are a tonic.
When you start forth, just to avoisi
the necessity of calling in a physician
to diagnose your ailment, take the
advice of Jonathan Swift ante consun%
"the three best doctors in the world
-Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet and Doc
tor Merryman." They will tell you
to eat moderately of digestible foods,
to let alcoholic liquors alone and then
to remember, as Solomon said, that
"a merry heart doeth good like a

MARL FROM ASHLEY RIVElt,
Stato Contraets With Virginia.Caro.
lna Interests tp Supply Farmers'
Columbia, March 7.--"Because of
the imperative need for lime on South
Carolina soils, for several years I have
been working with all the energy at
my command to at least get a start
made iipoh the development of the
large marl beds in the coastal plain of
this state. At last it can be announc
ed that this development, so full of
hope and promise for the future, is
under way; that one of the richest
beds has been opened, and that a
now 30,000 ton annual capacity plant
is in full operation, turning put a ma
terial of greatest value to agriculture
at this particular time,. the fertilizer
situation being so acute that under the
new act of the general assembly the
State department of agriculture has
contracted with the owners of the
plant for the entire output to be sold
to the farmers of the state, at as near
the cost of production as possible; that
the railroad rates have been carefully
adjusted by the State railroad com
mission; that until June 1 at least
material carrying over $1 of actual
values above the lime content values
will be delivered to fargiers, for cash,
in 30 ton lots, for around an average
delivered price of $2 to $2.25 per ton
in three-fifths of the State; that the
price of $1.25 per ton at the mine on
Ashley river is to include all ex
penses of handling and the State will
have to bear no costs in this regard."
The above was Commissioner Wat
son's way of announcing yesterday
the opening of the first marl plant in
the State, and he added:
"I believe a mdvemet has now
been launched that means more to
the future of farming in our State
than anything we have ever under
taken. And its real significance is
largely in the fact that the beginning
is being made with the aid and co
operation of one of the largest fer
tilizer manufacturing concerns."
Important in its bearing on the
future is the statement of S. T. Mor
gan, president af the Virginia-Carolina
Chemical company, and the Charleston
(S. C.) Mining and Manufacturing
"While the supply we can furnish
this spring is of necessity very limit
ed if it is demonstrated that the farm
ers of your state need this material
we are prepared to put out any
amount that may be required. As yot
know we have enormous deposits oi
this marl, and the amount to he pro
duced is only measured by, the con
struction of additional plant capacity.'
