[Cola. Special to News and Courier.] rc
The Comptroller General is not at
wark apportioneing the first instal- Tr
ment of dispensary protits in s(me b
time test have neen paid for,distri
bution to the school find. The dis
pensary a short time ago paid over
$25,000 and under the law the first ]
thing is to make up the "deficiency" h
so that each school in the various
counties shall receive at least $75 for
the year and run for at least three
months. The amounts that are indi
cated are what is necessary for every
school in the various counties to get
at least $75 for the year. It is mani
fetly necessary that a school should 1
get at least $75, but It is equally as
important that schocls should not te
multiplied simply to get this $75 or
that this should be largely made up
by tee State.
The following are the amounts
thart are necessary to give each I
county $75 per school:

mployes of the Augusta postoffice,
kd they constitute an appreciative
ribute from his race to the last
vords and the memory of General
A Southern hero lay dying,
Not from the battle cast,
But 'mid the sternest conflict \
Stern victory brings at last.
Tread softly near yon coucb,
Shrouded by death's pall,
Hear the victor's shout:
"God bless my people all!"
"God bless my people all,
The black man and the white"
God bless them in the effort,
As they struggle for the right;
God bless the rising manhood,
^With a life of honest toil,
God bless the blooming maiden,
God bless my native soil.
Oh. word4 so fitly spoken
From lips now chilled in de-ath!
Bearing a blessing of heaven
W1'h their last a.xpiring breath.
Israel's father in bless'ing
Divided his family small,
But thou in blessing thy people
Thou blesseth one and all!
Rest there now, soldier and states
Patriot, Christian and friend,
May the blessing inspire the valiant.
Tbe poor and weak defend.
And when we, too, be summoned
To answer Death's silent caLll
May the echo be from the Jordan,
"God bless my people all!"

Treatment of Colds.
This is a subject of perennial in
terest and one about which much has
been written, but with results dis
proportionately small, considering
the consumption of ink. The
truth is that a cold is due to an
almost infinite variety of causes,
some local, some general, some
readily avoidable, some practically
inevitable, and no one method will
prove effective in all cases.
Very few are the fortunate in
dividuals who never have colds,
and most of those living in our
Northern climate must be resigned
to having one or two in the course
of the winter;' but one who takes
cold readily and often is not in a
healthy condition, and should seek
medical advice. The cause in such
a case may be local, consisting in
some malformation in the interior
of the nose, which keeps the mu
cous membrane in an irritable
state. This fault in anatomical
construction can easily be remedied
by an operation which is seldom
severe. But before resorting to
this the general system should be
questioned, in order to dertermine
whether or not the fault li6s with
that. Often this is the case even
when a nasal deformity also exists.
One of the chief predisposing
causes of a cold is a disordered di
gestion, especially intsestinal di
gestion. as a result of overeating
or the use of alcohol. It has been
said that an underfed man cannot
catch cold, while an overfed one
can scarcely avoid it. Whether
this is strictly true or not, there is
some close relation between the di
gestive organs and the nose; and
inaction of the bowles is a fre
quent forerunner of a cold. '
The adage that one "must stuff
a cold and starve a fever" is per
nicious-a cold is a fever, and one
of the surest means of cutting it
short is to take a laxative, abstain
almost entirely from food for
twenty-four hours, and drink two
or three quarts of cool water.
Another "popular remedy,"
which is really an aggravator, is a
"hot toddy" at bedtime. A hot
drink-hot lemonade, for exam
ple-is good, and the subsequent
sweat is good, if the sleeper does
riot throw off the bedclothes the
minute he drops off ; but the
alcoholic addition is not merely su
perfluous, but injurious. Alcohol
in any form predisposes to a cold,
and retards the cure of one already
Cool bathing, deep breathing,

abstemious living, and not letting
waste materials accumulate in the
body -these are the best means
of removing one's "tendency to
catch cold."- The Youth's Com

The Youth's Companion tells of
a young man wvho failed to pass
an examination for a government
position. He had influence,' in the
way of a senator, who took 'aim
to Secretary Long to see if any
thing could be done to rerate his
grades and get him in. "It's no
use," said Secretary Long; "that
young man has failed three times.

More Truth Than Poetry.
There is "more truth than poetry"
n the following, taken fr'om the Co
umbia Record: "Steal a hog and

regarded as a financier; whip a man
ind you will be in danger of convic
Jion for assault and batter); but
kill a man and you will come clear."
A Fruitful Work.
In an outlying district of France
a little company of Protestants,
says a correspondent of The Inte
rior, was gathered in this wise:
A bereaved father went to the par
ish priest for permission to bury
his infant child. "But he was not
baptized." "No, father." "Then
he cannot Le buried in holy ground.
He is not of the true church."
The father returned sadder than
before, when a happy memory came
to him. He said: "On-e I heard
a man preaching, 'God's thoughts
are not as your thoughts.' I wish
I could find that man. I believe
he was right. If they have priests
of that faith I will find one, and he
shall bury my child and teach us
the truth about God, and my little
one, and all else." He was direct
ed to a minister, and from that
sprang, in a day, a church of thirty
In the beginning of the present
century there was an awakening in
western Penn:3ylvania. At the be
ginning of that wonderful work of
grace the Rev. Elisha McCurdy
and Philip Jackson, "the praying
elder," often retired to the woods,
and there wrestled wich (od for
the outpouring of his Spirit. A
little band of five pious women,
one of whom was the wife of Mc
Curdy, formed themselves into a
prayer meeting, to plead with God
for the revival of his work. On
one occasion, when a prayer meet
ing was to be held in a private
house, Mr. McCurdy, while the
people were gathering, was walk
ing outside collecting his thoughts
for the meeting and heard cries of
distress proceeding from a plot of
woodland near by. Taking with
him an elder, he found two young
women prostrate on the ground,
pleading earnestly with God for
mercy. He relates that "their cries
for mercy were very affecting.''
