"Well, I think It was," Insisted the senator's wife, "and when you see Warry you just tell him we caught hin that time." Do you suppose that butler delivered the message? Read Secrets of Parchment. Much of the lore of ancient palimp sests-parchment manuscripts from which the original writing has been erased and written over at a later date-is about to be laid bare by the mysterious power of the ultra-violet light produced by the mercury-vapor lamps. Previous to 1914 the discov erer of a new method of using the rays, a Benedictine monk of the Bava rian order, had made such progress that many of the ancient parchments in the Benedictine abbey of Wesso brunn had been made to disclose their secrets. In principle the new method is quite simple, being-based upon the peculiar Ity, possessed by many organic sub stances, of fluorescing-glowing with a pale casnary-colored light-when brought under the influence of the In visible ultra-violet rays. The old parchments possess this property to a remarkable degree, while the ink of the older writings upon them, contain Ing ingredients insensible to the ac tion of the rays. remains dark an forms a contrast of sutficient Intensity to register clearly on a photographic plate.

Says Americans Avoid Sunlight. One feature struck me in the schools, and it also struck me in the hotels and in private houses, and that is the avoidance of sunlight. A well-conduct ed window In America must have lace curtains drawn across it, and two blinds, one brown and one green. pulled accurately half-way down. Even In the great country houses, where no one could look in, and no one look otut without seeing spacious lawns and flowver bieds, the curtains are clised and the linds5 are drawn half-way down.

MeMaster has very generously given us the privilege : publishing several clippings taken from her memoirs.) For the benefit of those who do not know where or what Adger is, this is to inform them that is the place, as traditior has it, whence a Mr. Adger, who was the owner of a tract of land five miles north of Winnsboro, started on his famous walk to Charleston rather than wait on the stage coach, as he was in scmewhat of a hurry. It is need less to add that he reached there first. Tradition also has it that this same tract of land was later sold for taxes to one Samuel Cathcart. just from County Antrim, whence have come so many sturdy Irishmen to make green the fields of our fair Southland. What have been the develonments in this old worn out farm in the past fifty years is known of allaen who ever travel the Southern rail -hotween Columbia and Ch-r lotte. So marvelous have been tlw -1-naies that one can Fearce believe that this magnificent country home with every convenience and sur rounded by its fertile fields and nastures green is other than a part of the original Garden of Eden. By all means let that passenger shed be built as a fitting testimonial on the nart of the Southern Riilwav of it -pnreciation of the demonstration by Mr. Cathcart of the unparallelled tyi.osibilities of these old red clay hills of Fairfield.

The w ord itself comes from the Algonq~uin missi-sepe which *means "great river.". It Is popu-i larly supposed to mean "Father *of the W\aters"' hut this interpre-i tation is Incorrect. The state is *also) known as the Bayou Statei from th e many bayous which are 4 formed by the shifting river. In this connection it is interesting to note the uneven course of theY *Mississippi river. Though the extreme length of the state fromi *the Gulf to Tennessee is 330 miles, the western border, due *to the winding of the Mississippi , river, extends for nearly 500 *miles. The rivers play an igiportant *part in this state. They are so numerous and the country so * subject to flood that the river bottoms cover nearly one fifth Sof the area of the entire state. * The early history of Missis-i Ssippi is yoked up with that of , L Iouisiana of which it originallyi formed a part.. Discovered by & De Soto in 1539. it was not untili La Salle sailed down the river Yand claimed this territory, whichj hec named in honor of his French *kin', Louis XIV, that a pernma n zent settlement was established. In 1763 the territory east of *the Mississippi wvas ceded by the F'rench to the Englisn. For a whbile the lower portion of the present state was called WVest F 'lorida. After being captured by the Spanish and later re turned to the United States, the T 1erritory of Mississippi was ex Ytended to its present size of 46, 865 square miles and in 1817 Iti was admitted as the twentieth state of the Union. At the time} of the Mexican war, although called upon to supply one regi ment of volunteers, Mississippi responded with enough men fort two. One of these regiments twas commanded by Jefferson SDavis, who later was the presi-i (lent of the Confederate states. SSince its readmittance to the Un-4 ion in 1870 Mississippi in na tional elections has beeni a Demo crat ic state except in 1872, when it voted far Grant.

HUNTING LICENSES. On account of the hunting licenses for this season having been printed before the Acts of 1921 came from the hands of the printers, it was stated on the back of the licenses that the season for squirrels, rac coons, rabbits and o'possums would open October 1st and close after March 15th. The 1921 Legislature , however, passed the following Act, from which it will be seen that squirrels, rac coons, rabbits and o'possums may be hunted from September 1st to March 1st. Act No. 167, Acts of 1921: Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina: The close seas-:n for hunting squirrels, raccoons, rub bits and o'possums in this State shall be from March 1 to September 1 of each year. Same Old Story, but a Good One. Mrs. Mahala Burns, Savanna, Mo., relates an experience,, the like of which has happened in almost every neighorhobod in this country, and has been told and related by thous ands of others, as follows: " I used a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy about nine years ago and it cured me of flux (dysen tary). I had another attack of the same complaint about three or four years ago and a few doses of this remedy cured me. I have recom mended it to dozens of people since I first used it and shall contin t) do so for I know it is a quick and positive cure for bowel troubles." SUMMONS FOR RELIEF.

Hot Water Ea Puts Roses i To look one's best, and feel one's best is to enjoy an inside bath each morning to flush rm the system the previous day's waste, sour fermentations and poi sonous toxins before it is absorbed into the blood. Just as coal when it burns, leaves behind a certain amount of in combustible material in the form of ashes, so the food and drink taken each day leave in the alimentary organs a certain amount of indigestible material, which if not eliminated, form toxins and poisons which are then sucked into the blood through the very ducts which arel intended to suck in only nourishment to sustain the body. If you want to see the glow of healthy bloom in your cheeks, to see your skin get clearer and clearer, you are told to drink every morning upon arising, a glass of hot water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate in it, which is a harmless means of washing the waste material and toxins from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels, thus cleans ing. sweetening and purifying the entirei SAeMA1t Beaugv2Carinimmi Than ging Buying -66 modlel is a truly great motos Sredt economic achievement. ring qualities at minimum cost ne, .sensible investment value in terefore it has changed, and w ying habits in the fine car field c aut to look about you for the tell the story.
