Frauds In Watch Cases.
According to au article in the Cincin
nati Commercial, a fifty-one pound stone
waa recently found_ in that city secreted
in a bale of hay of eighty pounds.
This is not as bad as finding a lump of
lead of nearly one-half the weight of the
solid gold watch case secreted in the cen
tre of the case.
Gold watch cases are sold by weight, and
no. one can see where this lead is secreted
until the springs of the case are taken out
and the lead will be found secreted behind
These cases are made by companies who
profess to be honest, but furnish the means
to the dishonest to rob the public. It is
not pleasant for anyone to find that he
has lugged a lump of lead in his watch
Another trick of the makers of spurious
solid gold watch cases is to stamp the case
"U. S. Assay.'* The United States does
not stamp any article made out of gold and
silver except coin, and the fakir, by using
this stamp, wants to make the public be
lieve that the Government had something
to do with the stamping or guaranteeing
the fineness of watch cases.
Another trick of the watch fakir is to
advertise a watch described as a solid gold
filled watch with a twenty or twenty-five
year guarantee. These watches are gener
ally sent C. 0. D., and if the purchaser has
paid for the watch he finds thai the com
pany which guaranteed the watch to wear
; is not in existence.
The Dueber-Hampden Watch Company,
of Canton,..Ohio, who are constantly ex
posing these frauds, will furnish the names
of the manufacturers who are in this ques
tionable business.

A Professional Nurse Tells Her Ex*
perience With Doan's Kidney Pills.
Montague, Mass.
Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N. xl:
Gentlemen-I heartily wish those who
are suffering from backache and dis
turbed action of the kidneys would try
Dean's Kidney Pills. As was the case
with me, they will be more than sur
prised with the results. I had been
troubled for years with my spine. I
could not lie on either side. Spinal
cramps would follow, and words could
not explain the agony which I would
endure. While In these cramps I could
not speak or move, but by making a
great effort after the cramp, bad left
nie I could begin to speak and move a
little, but my whole back was so sore
a:id lame that I could not even have the
back bathed for some time. My nerves
were In a terrible state. I would rath
er sit up at night than go to bed, dread
ing the cramps and thc terrible back
aches. I consulted physicians, but got
only a little relief for the time being.
Seeing your advertisement, my mother
urged me to try Douu's Kidney Pills.
After using one box I was better, and
have ever since been on the gain. I
have no backache and no cramps now.
and I feel like a new person. My nerves
are better and I know my blood is purer.
Words cannot express ray thanks to
you for what Doan's Kidney Pills have
done for me. In my work as profes
sional nurse I have a chance to recom
mend them, and they did me so much
good that I will do so on every possible

Eally Doings of the People's Chosen
Several bills of more than general
Interest were finally disposed of-not
ably the bill to control telephone sys
stems of the State, the cotton seed
meal bill, the marriage record (vital
statistics) and the industrial side
track bill. Final action on Senator
Brice's dispensary bill was not taken.
Senator Hardin moved to indefinite
ly postpone Senator Blake's bill to re
quire railroads to construct, operate
and maintain industrial side tracks as
soon as it was read. However, he with
drew his motion and a debate ensued.
Senators J. W. Ragsdale, G. W. Rags
dale, Herndon and Gaines spoke on
the bill, and Senator Raysor submit
ted an amendment making the length
of the side tracks one quarter of a
mile or less. This was adopted.
The bill as sent to the house pro
vides that "manufacturing or indus
trial enterprises shall if they wish
have connecting tracks (not over one
fourth mile) with the main lines," the
rights of way to be given free. The
"reasonable first cost of construction'
shall be borne by the enterprise, but
the railroad shall pay back annually
20 per cent, of the revenue derived
from the freight received until the
"entire reasonable first cost" is re
Thirty days notice of application
must be given for a track, and if the
railroad commission decides that it
shall be granted, construction must be
gin 10 .days after the railroad has giv
en the plans and surveys to the enter
prise. These must be submitted with
in the 30 days from the application
date. The track when fully paid foi
ls the property of the railroad, but
cannot be removed without the con
sent of the commission.
The telephone bill was very slightly
amended. Senator Hydrick, the au
thor, had the title changed so as to
include the firms, corporations, etc.,
governing the lines, and another minor
amendment was inserted. The bill
would probably have been sent direct
ly to the house but for a parliamen
tary ruling by the chair which main
tained that it was not properly en
grossed, being in bad shape from that
standpoint. The rule was asked for
and the chair read senate rule 28 to
show its position. Senator Hyrick
wir.hed the bill to go to the house
just as it was.
Senator Hardin had the cotton seed
meal bill called up as a special order.
This ia the bill to put cotton seed
meal under the same inspection as
fertilizers aren ow. Senator Manning,
fertilizers a"e now. Senator Manning,
reading, by inserting a section stating
that the meal shall be divided into
three grades, yesterday substituted
for this an amendment stipulating
two grades, one "standard" and the
other "low." The difference in the
grades is made by 7 per cent, of am
monia. The bill, if it becomes a law.
takes effect June 1st of the present
year. An amendment submitted by
Senator Mayfield was adopted. It pro
vides that when a violation of the law
as to standard occurs, any seller of the
fertilizer or meal may be taken as an
agent of the company^ and papers may
be served upon him.* It was sent to
the house.
A bill by Senator J. W. Ragsdale
on the calendar for second reading,
providing for the collection of vital
statistics in the several townships ana
counties of the State, was killed just
at the hour of adjournment.
Senator Williams had a third read
ing bill on the calendar to regulate
the practice of medicine in this State,
but withdrew it to allow a house bill
cn the same subject to be discussed.
The house bill is practically the same
except that it does not contain the'
amendments exempting osteopaths
and homeopaths from its provisions.
The amendments will be printed in
the journal and the bill discussed to
!.. Herbert's house bill to provi?e
lvsneflc|ary scholarships at Clemson,
and Senator McLeod's bill to regulate
the traffic in seed cotton were made
special orders. Senator McLeod's bill
prohibits the traffic without a license
between August 15 and January 15.
Senator von Kolnitz bill to close a
portion of the Clements Ferry road in
Charleston county is now in the house.
This bill was suggested by Mayor
Rhett .at the request of the govern
ment, which wishes to use a portiou
of the land in connection with the
navy yard.
Of the 32 second reading bills on
the calendar only four were read. All
or these were practicaly local in chare
ter and application.
The House of Representatives'spent
aT!^f^?Wt^ay^a'cttng-iorr--{he bill to
provide for a record of marriages,
and the bill to repeal the lien law.
Each of these bills comes up every
year, and each is killed with persist
ent regularity. The marriage record
bill is killed on the ground that it is a
step toward the enactment of a di
vorce law, and the bill to repeal the
alien law is a protection to the poor,
as it permits them to give a niortga.ro
on muscle and to get money with which
to work independently, whereas, if
there was no such law they would not
be able to work for themselves, but
would be forced to work for others.
The arguments in favor of the bill
repealing the lien law are that by forc
ing the people to give up the lien cus
tom they would get on a cash basis,
could buy their supplies cheaper at
cash prices and would become citzens.
These points were brought out very
forcibly yesterday by Mr. Kibler, the
author of the bill to repeal the law, but
although he and its other advocates
made a strong fight, the bill was killed
by a vote of 60 to 40.
Another matter disposed of finally
was Mr. Etird's proposition to have
the members elected for four-year
terms should the people ratify the pro
posal to have biennial sessions. The
four-year terms resolution came up
one day last week, and falling to re
ceive Ute necessary 83 votes, the action
Of the House was reconsidered. Yes
terday the. number who voted in favor
of the bill was but 62, while 32 opposed
it T' . action of the House could not
be reconsidered a second time, so the
resolution was lost.
The following passed third reading:
Mr. Stackhouse's bill to guard
against the introduction of the boll
Mr. Haskell's bill relating to home
stead exemptions of persons other than
heads of families.
Mr. Bomar's bill proposing to let

Mr. Whaley's bill relating to lower
freight tariffs.
Senator Hydride's bill to establish

The House had a stirring session
after the nov,- famous State House
report was read. The lie WJIS passed,
and other unparliamentary language
freely indulged in. The matter was,
however, finally settled by apolijgies
all around. The House then proceed

m<. zn .md immigration passe'd second

"On Hlonday. a. Japanese squadron

If his demand was not complied with
