A Tragic Finish.
A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke,
which a child's finger could have
stopped, to become a ruinous break,
devastating an entire province of Hol
land. In like manner Kenneth Mc
Iver, of Vanceboro, Me., permitted a
little cold to go unnoticed until a
tragic finish was only averted by Dr.
King's New Discovery. He writes:
Three doctors gave me up to die of
lung inflammation, caused by a neg
lected cold but Dr. King's New Dis
covery saved my life.' Guaranteed

Ice Cream From Oil.
To make vanilla ice cream by arti
ficial means the alchemist took some
triple refined cottonseed oil and placed
it in a centrifugal machine which
moved at a velocity of 3,000 revolu
tions a minute. A beautiful emulsion
was thereby produced, which was then
frozen, chemically of course.
The flavor was obtained by the ad
dition of vanilla, glucine and nifcro
ben2ol. They say that ice cream com
posed as above is sold in many south
ern states, where cottonseed oil is
more plentiful, and consequently
cheaper than milk or cream. It is
far from harmful, tastes good and
does not melt as quickly as the gen
uine ice.Technical World.

Oollmars' Great Circus
Yesterday was the first circus day
of the season in Davenport and the
streets of the city during the morning
were crowded by the many residents
of the city and outside visitors who
came in to see the parade, which was
very attractive, being composed of
open dens of wild beasts, beautiful
circus wagons, horseback riders, Shet
land ponies, camels, dromedaries and
stately elephants, not forgetting the
steam calliope, which is present in
every first class street parade. The
parade was pleasing to everybody
ffrom the small street urchin to his
more sedate elderly parent. In the
aftrenoon the entire population of the
city seemed to travel toward the can
vas city and the big tent was crammed
to its full capacity at both perform
ances. The show was fine. There
were curbed or wooden rings and ele
vated stages. Everything about the
show looked bright and wholesome.
The menagerie proved a big attrac
tion, the principal features of which
are the Vlack Vark from Africa and
only living hippopotamus from the
River Nile. Altogether circus day
was voted a'grand success. Gollmar

Knows How to Farm.
G. G. Baker, who owns four acres
of land in the northern suburb of
Gaffney, last year rented two acres
from a neighbor and went to work,
and from these six acres, after supply
ing his rather large family bountifully
from his farm, he sold from one and
two-thirds acres 340 bushels of sweet
potatoes for $272. From two acres of
land in cotton he sold $98 worth and
from his snap bean patch he sold $35
worth of beans, making a total of $415
in cash received for the surplus
producs made on this small farm.
Besides the above Mr. Baker made
fifty bushels of corn and killed 500
pounds of pork, which he grew at
home and fattened with the products
of his farm. During last year Mr.
Baker worked much away from home.
Among other things, he earned enough
by work to pay for a one horse wagon
and mule, with which he made 4iis
crop. We have often heard about Mr.
Baker's crop, and a few days ago we
asked him about it. The above facts
were obtained from him, and no one
who knows him will doubt any state
ment he makes about this work or
anything else.Cherokee News.

"It is, it is," replied Pat, feelingly.
"A fine mon was Dinny."

"And a fine shoveler sure he was
the finest shoveler on the job."
"He was a good shoveler," admitted
"As good a shoveler as youse find
in a year lookin'."
"He was a good shoveler, a good
shoveler, he was, but he was not what
you would call a 'fancy shoveler.'

Farmers, Take Notice!
W. N. King of Waverly, Minn.,
and A. E. Grow of Princeton, have
sold the Omega separator around
Princeton. The separator is simple
and durable, because it has a top
bearing as well as a bottom bearing.
The Only separator made that has a
top bearing. This insures the separ
ator to run steady for its lifetime.
When a separator runs steady it will
skim clean.

the persons in this vicinity who have

An Old Cutler's Advice to Men Who
Use a Razor.
"Whenever I hone a razor," said an
old English cutler, "I always give some
advice with it, free, gratis, and I take
great satisfaction in knowing that I
have made shaving easier and more
comfortable for more than 10,000 men.
Almost every barber will tell you how to
strop a razor, but it takes a cutler to
tell you how to care for your strop and
how to get the best work out of your
"A swing strop, canvass on one side
and horse hide on the other, is the best.
Always hold it taut and draw the razor
lightly, but swiftly, from heel to point.
If you let the strop sag you will put
a round edge on your blade. Don't for
get to cover your strop or put it away
in a drawer after vising. If it hangs
in a bathroom near a window the dust
and grime get into it and soon take
the edge from your razor. Whether
you keep the strop covered or whether
you don't, rub your open hand over the
two surfaces to free it from dust.
"But what I consider my most valua
ble advice is how to do away with
shaving paper entirely and at the same
time improve the cutting quality of the
razor's edge. Nine men out of ten
shave themselves in a room where
there is running hot water. Now, the
way to get a most gratifying result is
this: Lather thickly and well and let it
remain on the face half a minute be
fore you begin to shave. If you have
time wash it off, for with it will come
the grit and dirt that you have loosen
ed up in the pores of the skin, and then
apply a second coat. It will be as soft,
smooth and clean as new velvet.
"Now turn on the hot water faucet
and let it run. Hold the razor under
the stream until it is heated. Then
take a slanting, or diagonal, stroke, like
a farmer does with a scythe, not a
square pull, and you will be amazed to
find how beautifully and easily the hot
blade cuts the beard.
"When it is filled with lather hold it
under the running hot water instead of
using sha-ving paper. This will wash
off the lather and at the same time
heat the blade again. Don't be afraid
of taking out the temper. That would
be impossible if you put the razor in a
kettle and boiled it. Try the hot blade
and you'll never shave with the cold
steel again."New York World.
Tobacco destroys the taste, smell and
Tobacco kills mental, moral and
physical vigor.
Tobacco paralyzes the mucous mem
branes and glands.
Tobacco's most dangerous poison,
nicotine, is without antidote.
Tobacco contains prussic acid, am
monia, carbonic oxide and nicotine.
Tobacco contains stronger poisons
than opium, alcohol, absinth or chloral.
A single leaf of tobacco or a single
cigar contains enough of this poison to
kill a man if applied properly.
Nicotine is the most deadly poison
known to the pharmacopoea. A single
drop or a gram will kill a large animal.
Nicotine resembles prussic acid in ap
pearance, effects and activity. Nico
tine's victims die in violent convul
sions.New York American.
~\o Answer Handy.
This is only worth the telling, writes
a correspondent, because it contains a
retort which, though a triumph of in
consequence, seem& to me quite unan
swerable I happened to be reading
some obvious newspaper proofs in a
train when the good natured man next
to me, with the intention no doubt of
making himself agreeable, asked, "Ah,
are you connected with the press?" I
intimated briefly and perhaps not over
courteously that it was none of his
business. He persisted that it was a
quite civil inquiry, which I met with
the remark that I had not asked him
whether he was a clerk or a shop as
sistant. As he was obviously neither,
this nettled him. "If I knew," he said,
"what newspaper you belong to I
would never buy it again."London
Buffalo Calves.
Buffalo calves, as a rule, are born
in April and May. They are active,
vigorous little creatures, mild eyed as
domestic calves, but possessing much
greater strength and endurance. In a
few seconds after birth they can get
on their feet, and in twenty minutes
they arefitto fight for their lives.
Usually it is unnecessary for them to
defend themselves at this tender age,
as a buffalo cow is, quite capable of at
tending to any business which may
arise in connection with the defense of
her precious baby.Washington Star.
Pleasant Thoughts.
"Make yourselves nests of pleasant
thoughts," counsels Ruskin. Bright
fancies, satisfied memories, noble his
tories, faithful sayings, treasure houses
of restful and precious thoughts which
care cannot disturb or pain make
gloomy or poverty take away from us
houses built without hands for our
souls to live inthese things are not
for earth alone they are a part of the
treasure that may be sent over.
