Honey for Food and Medi?
The following paragraphs,-taken fron?
the Chicago Daily News of recent

Honey taken as food becomes a
powerful medicine to the sugar-fed and

begin on small quantities and acquire
an appetite for it. Foul air, improper
ventilation, coal gas and sudden
changes of temperature, and exposure
of Idngs and throats to sudden chill

There is no? a word in the platform
of the People's Party about the pensions
of Union soldiers. A plank in regard
to this matter was fraudulently inserted

printed in the platform by mistake.
The Register says "wbeu Guvernor
Tillman was begging for a primary this
same faction opposed such a decision."
The demand for s primary is not by
any means confined to "this same fac?
tion"-it is a demand that includes
practically the whole up-county, whether
"Tillmanites" or "Antis." The de?
mand is based on their sense of right
and their conviction that every Demo?
crat ought to have the privilege of
voting directly for State officers, as he
does for other officers.
Wonder if Governor Tillman would
take the ground that what was right
when he was *'begging for it" is wrong
when other 8 are asking for it ? Or
would he contend that two wrongs
made one right ?-Newberry Observer.
A Queer Case.
A case involving the liability of a
railroad company for an injury to an
unborn child was receotly decided in
the Irish Court of Queen's Bench.
The Great Northern Railroad ruos be?
tween Armagh and Warren Point, in
the county of Downs, in Ireland. In
June, 1889, it carried as a pasteo ger
Annie Walker, who was injured by an
accident resulting from the alleged neg?
ligence of the company. Mrs. Walker
brought suit agaicst the company, and
a certain sara was paid her in- settle?
ment of her claim.
It appears that at thc time of the ac?
cident Mrs. Walker was with child,
and this child was afterwards born, but
in a crippled and deformed condition,
wbicb will b& lifelong. He sued the
company by bia representatives, and
the ouestion of his right to recover was
debated with much thoroughness.
There are many loose statements in the
English law as to how far an unborn
child is regarded as in being. The
judges decide chat the plaintiff cannot
recover, but differ in th reasons for the
decision, and the questiou cannot be
regarded as fully settled iu English
Cure for Obesity.
A stout man who wished to reduce
his weight, began by collecting pam?
phlets offered by firms that advertise
cures for obesity. He was much struck
by the fact that all agreed in one partic?
ular. While each firm advised thc
regular taking of its particular cure,
and several said, ''Others are useless
or worse," all insisted that a great deal
of exercise and a peculiar diet^mast be
taken with the medicine.
About six months afterward, the
pamphlet collector, now no longer a fat
?an. entered a drug store.

Took Poison and Threw Dice
Until he Died.
AKRON, 0 , March 17 -Guy Clifton
Wright, of this city, a travelling sales?
man, entered a saloon her& late last
night and called for a glass of seltzer.
He poured into it three drams of chloral
hydrate and cooily stirred the mixture
as he laughed and talked. Then be
drank the deadly poison. Turning to
the proprietor he said, with consum?
mate coolness :
"1*11 be dead in five minutes. I
want ooe more driuk. PH shake you
dice for it.'*
Thinking Wright was joking, the sa?
loon keeper replied banteringly :
"I don't like to take chances with a
dying man, but PH go you."
The game began. Wright won the
first ' horse" and the saloon keeper the
second. The latter smiled as be threw
four trays in the fioal round. Wright's
first dash yielded a pair of fives, bis
second did not better them. Calmly
he tossed the dice the last time.
"Four^fives," said he ; "I win," and
placing his hands convulsively to his
head be dropped to the floor unconscious
and died in a few minutes. His wife'?
desertion of bim led to the suicide.

Just after the termination of the late
unpleasantness a lady with a basket on

wards of a certain soldier's hospital

the sufferers, a German, aod asked :
"Were you a Union man or a Con
"Union," he replied.
Whereupon she passed on to the
next cot and repeated the same ques?
tion to the occupant.
"Confederate," was answered, and
then she handed the man a nice fresh
biscuit. The Germau watched the
proceeding not io the best of humor.
A few days later another lady going
through stopped at the German's cot
and asked which side be was on.
"Confederate," was the prompt re?
"Poor mao," she said, "here's a
tract for you," and passed on a:<d the

The latest statistics show thai, there
will be a decrease of from 40 to 50 per
cent in the fertilizer trade of Charleston
as compared with last year. Frank E
Taylor, a prominent manufacturer, in
a letter to the News and Courier, says :
"That there will be a decrease io the
acreage cf cotton seems to be clear,
owing to the extremely conservative
way in which all merchants throughout
the entire South must necessarily con?
duct their business during the present
year, tbus reducing to a large extent
the aid they have been in the habit of
extending to the farmers, and hence
restricting in their acreages."
