BIRDS' 8EN8E OF HUMOR.
Man of Experience Awards Palm to
) Roast Duck.
? "I was reading a. magazine article
.the, other day-I'm always reading
something," said the hardware mer
.ehant, "that had it that Dr. Kennedy
had discovered that birds have a sense
of humor. One of his anecdotes was
to the effect that a robin was feeding
heriyoung with earthworms, when a
j?apow, feigning lameness, appeared on
the edge of the nest with open mouth
and claimed a share of the meal. The
tobin looked the intruder over, picked
up a bit of dead twig that resembled*
a worm, and hastily thrust it into his
throat. The crow was so greedy that
he nearly choked to death before he
realized that he had been deceived. I
can easily believe that, but I've al
ways thought that the bird whose
sense of humor was most highly de
veloped was the duck. A roast duck
will have more fun with you in a
dumb, solemn kind of way than any
thing that wears feathers. I don't
except women or Indians.
'I've taken carving lessons and 1
know just where the joints of a duck
ought to be, but they're" never whero
they ought to be: they're always
somewhere else. What's worse, they're
never located alike in any two ducks.
Again? if you have one duck you can't
make it go around, and if you have
more than one there's too much. And
the way-a duck'II bound and spring off
the knife and go under the table
with' you, if you're not careful, is won
derful. A roast duck, always seems to
say to me:
" 'You've-got me where I can't do a
lot to you, but you'll be sorrier than I
am, at that, before we're through with
one another.' "

NATURAL BRIDG? OF AGATE.
Arizona Claims This Wonder In Its
Famous Petrified Forest.
There ls unending variety of mar
velous sights to be seen in the pet
rifi?d^oi?st fcovering thousands of
?er?is in the .eastern part of Arizona,
but what IsTegarded as the . greatest
^i;^jpf_all is the bridge of petrified wood.
?ssS??w?MS-^ trunk span
" / ning a, canyon-like ravine fifty feet
wide--a bridge of agate and jasper
overhanging tho only clump of living
trees found-within the forest's bord
ers. Bach end of the log is embed
'^d'ed -in shale and sandstone; leaving
100-feet of it either wholly or partly
exposed. How much of its length still
remains completely buried is un
known, but each year the action of the
elements brings more into view.
So far, time has graciously spared
the integrity of this natural curiosity,
but in the last few years the log has
begun to show signs of yielding to the
natural inclination of petrified trees
?ndin several places transverse cracks,
appear. Fearing that the bridge
Would tumble to destruction the gov
ernment has recently had two stone
abutments erected under it, making of
. .it a-bridge of three spans. This no
doubt will preserve It for at least sev
?fl^ra! years yet.

Notes of Southern Cottoa Mills and
Other Manufacturing Enterprises.
. Big Cotton M?l Plant.
JThe purchasers of the Tennessee
Manufacturing Co.'s hig cotton mill
plant will spend $205,000 foi- new
machinery with which to fit up Mill
No. 2, which is to be run by W. R.
Odell and associates. Not long since
it was announced that Mr. Odell, of
North Carolina, and a number of local
capitalists had purchased the Tennes
see Manufacturing Co.'s property in
North Nashville for $145,000. That
these gentlemen are in earnest is
shown by the fact that they have
taken out their charter, that it has
been registered at the office of the
Secretary of State and the company is
now in existence. The capital stock
of the company is placed at $200,000,
and the new concern is to be known
by the corporate name of the Warioto
Cotton Mills. The purchasers will
hardly get possesion of the property,
however, before July 1, 1906, owing \ y
the fact that George Goodwin has a
lease on it until that time." Mill No. 1
been sold to the Morgan Hamilton
Co., to be used by them as a bag fact
ory. The incorporators of the Wari
oto Cotton Mills will meet for organi
zation on^ept. 2S. Thc incorporatoi-s
are J. B.. Morgan, William Nelson,
Joseph H. Thompson, Edwin Warner
and M. J. Smith.
Change in Management.
An almost complete change in the
management of the Union Cotton
Mills, was effected at a meeting of the.
stockholders recently. At this meet
ing, four directors and the treasurer,
T. C. Duncan, resigned and in the.
subsequent election the following well
known and substantial business men
were elected directors of the Union
Cotton Mills : Emslie Nicholson, presi
dent Monarch Cotton Mills; T. C.
Duncan, president Union and Buffalo
Mills, all of Union : H. C. Fleitmany
capitalist, New York ; W. M. Win
chester, banker, Spartanburg; E. W.
Roberson, Banker, Columbia, Direc
tors Buffalo Mills : F. M. Farr, pres
dent National Bank; A. H. Foster,
capitalist; T. C. Duncan, all of Union:
with the-same out-of-town directors
..as thV Union Mills.
Mr. E."W. Roberson, of Columbia,
.was elected treasurer of both mills,
and has entire management of the fi
nances.
Expert accountants are now going
over, the books of thc Buffalo Mills
and until their reports arc handed
in nothing can be known of the lia
bilities of the mill.
The Union Cotton Mill runs 96,000.
spindles and 2,300 looms,"has a capital
stock of $1,1000,000. and employs
1,200 persons.* Thc equipment of the
Buffalo Mill comprises 64,000_ spindles
and 2,000 looms,. SOO people being em
ployed.
Power and Mill Company.
The Anthony Shoal Power and Mill
Company has been purchased by John
H. Fitzpatrick; of Washington, Ga.
He expects to spend several hundred
thousand dollars in developing this
power; and will begin work at once.
Within a radius of 40 miles there is
now being used more , than 50,000
?team horse power, at'a cost pf from
$36 to . $50 per horse power, all of
.which he. will be in a position to
furnish at a lower rate. "The shoals
are located about half-way between
Washington and Tiberton, and as soon
as the power is developed Mr. Fitz
. patrick will have all rarangements
made for building an electric line be
tween thc two places. He also ex
pects to build... a- cotton factory at
Washington and at the Shoals.
Textile Notes.
- The State has chartered the Flora
Cotton Mill Company to build and
operate mills there to manufacture
yarns and cloth. The authorized cap
ital stock is $400,000, of which $15,000
has been paid in by Henry W. Lily,.
W. D. McNeill and J. K.'S. #ay. Half
the stock is preferred and on this 7
per cent, and no more is guaranteed.
i At the last meeting of the Augusta,
council, Gwin'H. Nixon applied for
water power for the Warwick Mills,
which a part of capitalists had pur
chased from the city. Council left the
matter in .the hands of a committee,
who returned a favorable answer to
Mr. Nixon. The opening of the mill
\^.UD:me.an' aLlarger output of cotton
goods. Mr. Nixon, when seen in re
gard to the matter, refused to make
any statement except to admit that
the mill would be re-opened, but it is
generally rumored on the street that
the corporation intends building up
the property with thc intention of
making a sale, .
The Rhode IslandMill ps having
plans and specifications prepared for
the erection of a 100 by 200 foot ad
dition to its building.. It was announ
ced in June that the enlargement had
been decided upon and that 200 looms
would he installed. The looms will
weave cotton blankets. About $12,
000 will be the cost of improvements.
The Swift Manufacturing Company
will probably let the contract for its
new cotton mill about October 1.
The Eagle and Phoenix Mills have
received two more car -loads of looms
for their new weaving rooms, which
are being fitted with four box Cromp
ton & Knowles looms. Six more cars
are expected in a few days.

SOUTH CAROLINA CROP BULLETIN
Weather Conditions Given Out by the
Department Observer.
The South Carolina section of tho
climate and crop service of the De
partment of Agriculture issues the
following official bulletin of weather
and crop conditions for the past
week :
The week ending Monday, Septem
ber 25th, was one of extreme heat,
with the weekly mean temperature
about six degrees per day above nor
mal. The temperature extremes were
a maximum of 9S degrees at Bates
burg and Blackville on the 20th and
a minimum of 57 at. Spartanburg on
the 23rd. There was very little cloud
iness in thc western portion and con
siderable in the eastern and south
eastern parts.
Drought continues in the central
and western counties, while the east
ern and southern counties had copi
ous rains on the 20th and 21st,
amounting in many places to between
one and two inches. A few localities
had beneficial showers in the west,
but over the larger part of that sec
tion of thc State lhere was no rain
or merely a trace. ' .
The weather was favorable foi
gathering crops, except in a few east
ern localities, and much hay was sav
ed in fine condition, and fair progress
was made iii cutting- and curing pea
vines. Over the larger portion of the
State the ground is too dry for plow
ing and fall seeding operations, and
less than thc usual amount of oats,
or other grains have been sown. The
dry weather was also inimical to late
corn, fall root crops and pastures.
Over the easteru cum tics minor crops
have sufficient moisture and are do
ing well.
Cotton continacs to open rapidly in
all sections, and it is opening prema
turely over a large portion ot' the
western half of thc State, but there
is no perceptible change in the con
dition of the crop, nor in the pros
pective yield which is smaller than
last year in all parts: The weather
was favorable for picking, with some
interruption in the east, where some
open cotton was damaged by rain
both this and last week.
Fall truck was favored by the rains
on the 21st, but some hay on the
ground was damaged along the coast.
In other parts of the State haying
progressed rapidly and favorably.
J. W. Bauer, Section Director.
Sues Clemson College For Alleged
Damages.
Anderson, Special.-A suit has been
instituted in thc court of common
pleas for Oconec county in the name
ol: Dr. John Hopkins of Seneca as
plaintiff, against tiie trustees of Clem
son College. Dr. Hopkins owns a
plantation on Seneca river a short dis
tance below the college experimental
farm, and he alleges that he has been
damaged by overflows through the
building of a d}rkc on thc college'
farm. He clams damages in the sum
of $8,000. The trustees have employ
ed counsel to represent the interests j
of the college.
The Cape Romain Lands.
The attorney general has advised
recently that the deed from the sink
ing fund commission to thc Cape Ro
main Land and Improvement company
is void. This deed is recorded in
book C of duplicate titles, and dated
February 12, 1398. The reason that
it is said to be void is because it
attempts to convey lands under navi
gable waters of the State. The sink
ing fund commission adopted the fol
lowing resolution. "That the clerk of
the commission notify ali claimants
under s?id deed that they will be
treated as tresspassers on the prop
erty attempted to be conveyed there
by.'"
The Union and Buffalo Mills.
Union, Special.-Thc situation in
regard to the condition of ai?airs at
the Union and Buffalo mills remains
unchanged and everything has been
extremely quiet. The current ru
mors of the past several days have
died out and everywhere the opinion
is expressed that the mills will.con
tinue and that there will be neither
panic nor financial disaster.
Waste Mill For Spartanburg.
Spartanburg, Special-The latest
addition to bc added to Spartanburg's
long list of industrial enterprises is a
waste mill, which Avili bc established
by thc Hoffman-Carr Manufacturing
Company, of New York. The plant
will involve the expenditure of at
least $200,000, and will be located
near thc Spartanburg Junction. Re
cently Messrs. Hoffman and Carr
came to the city and inspected thc
territory, and subsequently decided
that here was thc most advantageous
location-for theil- plant.

"Prophet" Dowie Stricken.
Chicago, Special.-John Alexander

nation of the Prophet Elijah, and to

"Alf" Churoh Vouched for Him.
It is only a few years since Woon
socket missed for good the familiar
face of "Alf" Church, for a long time
deputy sheriff and chief of police, a
man who was straightforward and
blunt in all his dealings.
One day a grocer went to "Alf" for
information about a certain "Joe"
White, who had applied for credit and
a book at his store, and the following
dialogue ensued:
"Good mornin', Mr. Church..**
"MornlnV
"Do you know Joe White?" .
"Yes."
"What kind of a feller ls he?'
"Putty fair."
"Is ho honest?"
"Honest? I should Bay so. Been

Fought Duel With Water.
. Very absurd was a due/ which was
fought not long ago in front of the
railway station at Antwerp. Two bur
gesses of Liege, after a day's sightsee
ing, adjourned ? to a cafe for refresh
ment, and there began a dispute which
led to hot words and finally to blows.
Nothing but blood could efface the
mutual insults, but as no deadly wea
pons were available the caf? proprie
tor suggested that the arfair could be
just as well settled with douches, and
he provided each combatant with a
portable waterplpe. For several min
utes the- duelists leveled their chilly*
weapons at each other; until, drench
ed to the skin, their passions were so
effectually cooled they were glad to
shahe hands and rush away to change
their garments.
Intelligence vs. Docility.
Will people who talk about dogs
ever learn to differentiate between In
telligence ? and docility? The word
"intelligent" is used almost universal
ly in talking and writing, when peo
ple1 mean, docility; 1. e., the readiness
of the animal to accept instruction,
says Joseph A. Graham in Outing.
Now, as in human beings, docility is
likely to be an evidence of second
rate intelligence, and tho degree of
intelligence is likely to appear when
the animal is doing things on his own
hook. It makes no great difference,
but to the man who tries to think
accurately the constant parado of an
obedient animal as one cf excepronal
mental ability is painful.
Rich Sago Pudding.-Here is a rec;
ipe for the favorite pudding of a
housekeeper of the last generation,
who served it to ber family after the
simple Sunday dinner customary ia
her day: Soak six heaping teaspoon
fuls of sago in a quart of sweet milk
for five hours. Then add a quart of
boiling milk. Cook till soft. Beat
the yolks of six eggs in a pudding
dish with a teacup of sugar and a lit
tle nutmeg. Then when the sago is
soft stir it into the eggs and sugar.
, Bake twenty minutes. A'^r the pud
ding has been set away to cool beat
up the whites of the six eggs until
they are a stiff froth and fold into
'them three tablespoonfuls of sugar.
Spread this meringue over the top of
the pudding and brown it in the oven.
A little jelly ls sometimes spread over
the pudding before adding the mer
ineue.

and One in N
All women work; some in their
homes, some in church, and some in
the whirl of society. And in stores,
mills and shops tens of thousands arc
on the never-ceasing treadmill, earning
their daily bread.
All a-e subject to the same physical
laws; all suffer alike from the same
physical disturbance, and the nature of
their duties, in many cases, quickly
drifts them into the horrors of ail
kinds of female complaints, ovarian
troubles, ulceration, falling and dis
placements of the womb, leucorrhoa,
or perhaps irregularity or suppression
of "monthly periods,'' causing back
ache, nervousness, irritability and
lassitude.
Women who stand on their feet all
day are more susceptible to these
troubles than others.
They especially require an invigorat
ing;, sustaining medicine which will
strengthen the female organism and
enable them to bear easily the fatigues
of the clay, to sleep well at night, and
to rise refreshed and cheerful.
How distressing to see a woman
struggling to earn a livelihood or per
form her household duties when her
back and head are aching, she is so
tired she can hardly drag about or
standup, and every movement causes
pain, the origin of which is due to
some derangement of the female or
ganism.
