A GREAT JOKE.
The Early Case is Becoming a Matter tor' the Humorists to Take up. New York, July9.—JoknR. Ear ly, the young Southerner herald-1 ed about the country as a leper, j gave a reception to night to prove that he is untainted. It was held at New York skin and cancer hns and was attended by medical men a number of Early’s friends and a sprinkling of the general public interested in the case. Early, who lately came from Washington where he was quaran tined for nearly a year, received his guests cordially and discussed his recent isolation. The reception was arranged by Dr. L. Duncan Bulkely, the spec ialist who brought Early here to fhow that there is nothing lepr. ns about the man, Early related a humorous inci dent at the expence of the Wash ington authorities. “What did you do when they had you shut up?” he was asked. “I raised chickens,” he said, ‘‘and both the chickens and their eggs were sent to Washington and sold m the open market.” What Early, Dr. Bulkely ex plained, is a simple inflammation of the skin caused by the alkali used in the pulp mill where he for merly worked in North Carolina, t Dr Bulkely says that after a careful examination not the slight est trace of the baccilus of leprosy was found, but as a precaution, he said, Ear!}' will probably be kept at the hospital for a week or more so that the diagnosis may be con firmed by other dermatologists. Pulled ofl Cow's Tall. A day or two ago a cow belong ing to Martha Brown came home without a tail. A good deal of interest was created in the matter as if, appeared to be a case of in human cruelty to animals. The police were notified and two days elapsed before they could find out the straight of it. It appears that the cow was in Mr. Henderson’s pasture. Blue Chavis, a small negro boy, a cow miuder, was in the pasture, and he caught hold of the cow’s caudal appendage in a playing manner, it is said, and it pulled off. The cow had un dergone an operation upon the ap pendage for “hollow tail,” the tail is cut into a portion of the bone taken out; the place had de veloped, it seems, into a kind of old sore, and not much of a pull was necessary to sever the caudal member. It is not beloived that any case wil* be made against the boy.—Aiken, S. C., Journal. Life 100,000 Years Ago, Scientists have found in a cave in Switzerland hones of men, who lived 100,000 years ago, when life was inconstant danger from wild beasts. To-day the danger, as show'll by A. W. Brown, of Alex ander, I\le., is largely from deadly disease. “If it had not been for Dr. King’s New Discovery, which curad me, I could not have lived,” he writes, “suffering as I did from a severe lung trouble and stubborn cough.” To cure Sore Lungs, Colds, obstinate Coughs and pre vent Pneumonia, its the best med cine on earth. 50c and $1.00 Guaranteed by all druggists.

Georgia Senate passed bill to-day making it a penal offense to utter any false or defamatory remark about a woman. Heretofore the woman so defamed had no recourse ex cept ill the civil courts. But the McCurry bill changes all that and will, it is believed, put a bridle on scandalous t ugues. It was not passed without long debate, many Senators believing it impairs the right of free speech. • »» • Any lady can get a silver “No Drip” Coffee Strainer by writing Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis.

Watchman—75c the year—Cash, They Found the Boy. “We have been looking for a long time for an office bey who does not whine, a boy who is not full of complaints every time something or other goes wrong. We have got him and we have roped him down . No human pow er can got him away from us. He is going to stay, and his wages are what ho chooses to make them . “We have had lot", of office boys. Most of them hud the dis ease of whining. A whine in a boy is worse than the whine of a sick dog, and that’s saying a good deal. Whines never built a h '.use, never laid out a town, never con structed a railway, never made a school grow or a farm pay . Whines are a sneaking form of irritation that Satan devised to lead other wise good boys astray. We don’t want whines. “Well we advertised for a hoy, and he came. We didn’t know be was coming, but he came just the same. Several whining boys had been in, and we had prompt ly tired them How he came was this . The wind blowing fifty miles an hour, the mud wub knee deep in Poplar street, it was thunder ing, lightning, and raining to beat the band, the sidewalks were afloat and everything in town was souk ed. “Our cilice door was opened i»y a boy in a torn straw hat, a rag* ged suit of clothes, aud bare feet. He was mud and water from head to foot, one eye had a cast, he had lost a little finger and his- toes were stubbed. But, his smile I Talk about so dug the faces of an gels! That smile! It radiated like the sunshine of a June day falling over a trout stream in the green grasses of the meadows. It was warm, expansive, coaxing, reassuring, trustful, happyful. And his voice said : “Not such a bad day, after all sir.” “No whine in that! No sireel Ii that boy had blown in by a cy clone, he would have lauded on his feet with the remark: “It might have been worse.” “He was engaged. Drop in and see him.”—New York News. Will Have a Crop Anyway. We d" not remember a year but in the spring and early summer the crop talk was not most dis couraging. It was too wet, too dry, too something or other until we felt like lying down and weep ing over the direful results sure to follow. Somehow this feeling al ways prevails. There is so much wrong But in theend everything seems to light itself and the crop turns up a certain percentage oi the average, whatever that meaLS. This s -ason has been no excep tion, and almost daily there has been poor crop talks, much of which has found its way into print. It may be put down than in spite of too much rain, too lit tle rain, hail, grass, drought, boll weevil and chinch bugs there will be a crop harvested this fall, in all respects very much like thf rest of them always start off with the very poorest sort of prospects In truth the good Lord gives us a bountiful harvest in spite of cur poor mouthing and complaints. And the funniest thing about it all is that the smallest percentage of this talk comes from the m m who are working the crops and de pending directly upon them.— Concord Tribune. Durham, July 12. - Walter Hobbs, the noted blind tiger, was today sentenced by Judge Sykes to seven jears on the county roads. Hobbs withdrew his appeal and agreed to pay the costs in the cases and take three years on the roads, asking to begin at once. Solicitor Everett agreed and ho went to the roads. Judge Sykes followed the severe punishment with an eighteen months’ sentence on Jim Hays and sent up Hays’ wife. If you must smoke steadily, use judgment in buying your cigars.

A half century ag > it was claimed thatcottou was king and that the South clothed the world, and by her cotton pro duction alone the South was the richest secti m of the couutrj. Since then the value of the cotton crop has been immensely mcreased by the utilization of the cotton seed. And since then the South has also become a great iron and coal producing c uiitry, it has taken the lead in the textilemano facturing, it is diversifying its ag riculture, disc, vering new resour ces in mineral and other natural deposits and is daily growing more conscious of the fact that in Boil and climate and natural resources the Creator has been lavish in blessing the South than any other country of the earth The awakening of the South to its future possibilities, which is evidenced by the organization of this Southern Commercial Con gress, is beginning to bear fruit, and will lead to a marvelous de velopment of this section in the immediate future .—Augusta, Ga,, Herald.
