Pinkhain's Voge table Compound, that it ia the safest and best medicine, for any suffering woman tc ase." . "Immediately after my marriage I found that my health began to fail me. I be came weak and pale, with severe bearing-down pains, fearful backaches and fre quent dizzy spells. The doctors prescribed for me, yet I did net improve. I would bloat after eating, and frequently become nauseated. I had pains down through my limbs so I could hardly walle It Tras as bad a case of female trouble as I hare ever known. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, however, oared me within four monthB. Since that time I havo bad occasion to recommend it to a cumber of patients suffering from all forms of female difficulties, and I find that while it is .considered unprofessional to rec ommend a Detent mediane, I can honestly recommend Lydia E.

A BOY'S BREAKFAST There's a Natural Fond That Makes It's Own Way.. There's a boy up in Hoosick Falls, N. Y., who is growing into sturdy man hood on Grape-Nuts breakfasts. It might have been different with him, as his mother explains: "My eleven-year-old boy is large, well developed and active, and has been made so by his fondness for Grape Nuts food. At live years he was a very, nervous child and was subject to fre quent attack?* of indigestion, which used to rob him of his strength and were very troublesome to deal with. He never seemed to care for anything for his breakfast until I tried Grape Nuts, and I have never had to change from that. He makes his entire break fast of Grape-Nuts food. It is always relished by him and he says that it .Eatisfies him better than the ordinary kind of a mea).

When the house met there were sev eral hew. bills introduced; Among the new bills presented were: Mr. Harrison-To authorize a spe cial election for Fountain Iiin for the issuance ?? bonds-. Mr. M'cCo?l-Proposing an amend ment to the constitution relating to municipal indebtedness-. . Mr. Whaley introduced the license feature of the Morgan bill as a sep arate and distinct bill. He did this so that Charleston may get a license system in the event that the Morgan bill should by chance fail, The idea is to have a license bill applicable to cities of over 40,000 in the event that the Morgan bill should fail. The house having, passed this proviso for Char leston it is to be asked to. do so again independent of any other bill. The pro visions are identical with those of the Morgan bill as to licenses for cities of over 40,000; Mr. Cloy-To amend the law so one bank or Corporation can buy stock in another bank or corporation. Mr. Sinkler-To purchase the. prem ises known as the guard house for the Citadel; -$25,000 is asked from the State for the purpose. Mr. Doar-To authorize the city of Georgetown to lease property to the Georgetowh Rifle Guards. Mr. Brice-To amend the law as to the State board of examiners. The report of the legislative com mittee to examine the State house of fices was received last night. It was ordered printed without reading it. This report is of special interest with regard to the examination of the of-, fice of secretary of Stat?;. Mr. Toole ca??d up his bill to pro vide for ? 1-2 cent passenger rates. Mr. Kershaw bf Florence had no in terest in railroads but he was oppos ed to reducing rates without very good reasons. He believed a reduc tion of the rates would only result iu injury to the traffic and shipping facilities. He certainly thought it would be ill-advised to take such a radical step at this time. The thing to do is to remedy evils but it was wrong to reduce rates without verv ?ood reasons. The .people were de manding and were getting good ser vice. Mr. Verner said there was no reason not to reduce rates. The railroad counsel did not argue anything against the bill. The only argument against the bill seemed to be that there would be no saving to the indi vidual! He realized wh?t the rail roads haye done for th? people but the people did'tiiucll t?o ?nd lie thought this reduction would not hurt the railroads-. The roads asked to be left alone but he did not know if that ought to be kept Up" all the time. He generally, voted with the railroads and was not illebcral but he occassionally voted against the roads and this was one instance in which he thought ot wrong to vote with the railroads. He was opposed to sending so much mon ey outside the State. He said the rail roads were making 10 per cent, on their investment in this State. Mr. Rucker said in the 45 States there was not one State that had a 2 1-2 cent rate applied to the entire State, Kew.York, Massachusetts^ and Connecticut had a 2 and 2 1-2 cent rate on certain roads udder their charters. What is wanted is more trains, better schedules and safety; To pass this bill means a loss of $400,000 to $500,000.to the roads in passenger revenues. In* New York with over 7,000,000 and a population of 150 people to the square mile, there whole. He compared the population of South Carolina with that of othei States. In South Carolina the popu lation is 44 per square mile and a large uortion of that is colored. Penn sylvania, Maryland and Rhode Is land, with thick population, have nc such rate. He appealed to the house not to injure thc railroads. The rail roads in South Carolina are not mak ing one cent on their passenger bus iness. In reply to an inquiry as to mileage books, he said the roads had the use of the money for a year. Mr. Toole of Aiken said the reduced passenger rates would be for the ben efit of the people and urged that the railroads would get more travel. The facilities are good enoup-h but he wanted cheaper rates. The time has come for the State to take a step for ward. He said the small and side lines were controlled and owned by the large roads. The trolley lines, he' said, hauled passengers for less than 2 cents. On the motion to strike out the en acting words of the bill the vote re sulted 47 to 26 and the house voted to put South Carolina in a class all to itself with the cheapest passengei rates applicable to all railroads "ii: the State. Mr. Foster wanted to include a 2F mile road in his county and an amed ment was adopted making the 2 1-2 cent rate applicable to all roads re gardless of length. Mr. Toole's bili cutting passenger rates to 2 1-2 cents .net with eveu less opposition than he expected. The burden of the agree ment seemed to be that if the passen ger rates were reduced the railroads would take care of themselves. The general magistrates' bill was takeu up an adopted. Various county delegations incorporated amendments Mr. Ottis called un the bill to makt an appropriation of $10,000 for the dispensary investigation committee. The bill was goven its second reading without discussion. The $10,000 is tc be xepended out of any dispensary funds iu hand. In tho Senate. Two bills on South Carolina's edu cational institutions occupied the sen ate 's time during the morning session. \ bill to publish the names of bene ?ciaries was read and a bill to give part of the fertilizer tax to Winthrop was debated. Rather unexpectedly, Senator W. J. Johnson called up his bill to divert part of the privilege tax on ?crtflize? to Winthrop, whii-h nuder the bill shall do a proportion ol' the examin ation. In a speech which included many teljing figures, the author de fended his measure Last year, he said, the friends of Clemson fought the bill 'on thc ground that the col lege had just bee undergoing im provements (the agricultural hall) which, used up money and that no di vert som(? of the tax would do the institution harm. Now the debt was paid; and the receipts ot the college last Hear showed something like $130,000 from the tax. Probobly this year.-the receipt* would b?. $1156)000, Senator Johnson commented on the fact th?t the Clemson ?uthorities an nounced the college's income was $179,118.50; from which over $31,000 was deducted as "amounts appropri ated by the legislature under special acts" and which the board must spend as such. This left according to the trustees*.report (page ll) $147,890.65 for. expenses. The special committee reported that Clemson re ceived, including permanent.improve ments and amounts expended by or der of the l?gislature?, over'$260,000. The senator from. Fairfield com mented on his assertion. that it cost the State 20 to 30 per cent, more to educate a boy at Clemson than at the other schools of the State. He said that the trustees' report (page 13) asserted that it cost $295, while a divisori of the receipts would show that it cost $432. Winthrop's per capita was $287, the Citadel's $291 and South Carolina college's $156. Senator Carpenter, who is one of Clemson's staunchest advocates, re plied and in beginning had an affida vit read whit?ll stated that, some sal aries listed oii page 56 of the trus tees report were charged to the wrong account. He stated that the reason that there was a discrepancy in the committee report and the trustees' re port was that the fisc.pl year ended in June and the committee's report was made up to December. The Hatch fund waa always _ misunderstood and had to be applied to ? specific pur pose. Clemson had used about $115, 000 last year. Senator Carpenter then launched forth into a"statement of the college's foundation, its aims and pur poses and said that he spoke not so much for the institution as for what it would do for. his State. It was the hour of adjournment when he closed and some of the sen ators wanted tb take a vote; but de bate was postpbn?d until the evening session. Appropriation Bili Passes House. The House refused to kill the de partment of immirgration and show ed a liberal disposition to the sup port of the bureau. An increase of $50,000 was made in the appropri ation for Confederate vetrans. For the first time iii 15 years! there was no suggestion, or hibtion to reduce the appropriation; ?s recommended by the committ?e; fbi* the Support bf the South Carolina College and Citadel. There was a motion to reduce the al lowance to Winthrop but there was no change in the suggestions of the sup port needed for the State colleges. The only real fight in the house on thc appropriation bill was on thc de partment of immirgration but the ?rembei H were not disposed to discon tinu that Work; - The ways and means conunltfe had its bill iii excellent condition and had the fortune pf having .tile measure agreed to with practically no changes. The house refused tb vote $2,500 for the expenses of special terras of court. This is taken as a second and direct intimation on the part of the house that it does not want special terms of court. The appropriation bill carried au expenditure of $1,2S0,869.69 as it came from the committee. To this was added $50,000 additional for pensions. The pension bill last year aggregat ed $1,263,638.89. This increase. is due to expenses for elections and to m?ke up deficiencies; The Iruse Will today send the ap propriation and legislative appropria-, tion bills over to the senate. xne Kerormatory. The reformatory bill was finally dis posed of as far as the senate is con cerned. An aye and nay vote suc ceeded on striking out the clause to set aside the Lexington reformatory for colored boys when thc larger one should be established. Senator Hood then postpoed to indefinitely postpone the bill. By a vote of 21 to 17 the senate senate refused to postpone, the vote being: Yeas-Bates, Bivens, Black, Blake, C. L. Blease, E. S. Blease, Davis. Den nis, Efird, Hood, Hough, W. E. John son, W. J. Johnson, Peurifoy, Stack house, Wan-en, Williams-17. Nas-Brice, Brooks, Brown, But ler, Carlisle, Carpenter. Douglass, Earle, Hardin, Hudson, Manning, Marshall, Mauldin, McGowan, Mc iver, McLeod, Ravsor, Talbert, von Kolnitz Walker, Wells-21. A number of the senators who had voted to strike out the section just quoted refused to kill the bill. The bill to give the circuit stenog . raphcrs an increase in pay came over from the house. The senate had agreed on $1,600 as compensation, but the house reduced this $100 in each in stance. Senator von Kolnitz moved non-concurrence, as the stenographer in thc ninth circuit uuder the house bill was cut $100. He was cut $200 a year ago. Xo wthis change cuts his salary $100 again. In a like condition is the stenographer in the first circuit Senator Stackhouse, who had intro duced the original bill in the senate, moved concurrence, and this was ac cepted. Under the change in salaries the stenographers in the two circuits spoken of suffer the loss of $100 each, while the others will get $300 more than before the general assembly con vened. Senator W. E. Johnson announced that as thc 10-hour law had been kill ed in the house he would make no fight on it this year. He merely asked a vote and the bill was killed by a vote of 2S lo 6. The two fish commission bills passed to the. house, with an amendment by Senator Wells that fish may be caught 35 days later five miles from the mouth of a river than at its mouth. Some technical amendments by Sena tor Christensen, the author, were ad opted. _ A special message from Gov. Jricy ward, bearing on thc financial investi gation in Barnwell, was read. The message was long and detailed and was ordered printed in the journal. The hill to grant a piece of land in Senate street for the Tium.d library , was reported unfavorable and was killed. The substitute offered yn Thursday by Senator Carpenter for the motor car bill was read and ac cepted and passed to third reading. Senator Marshall's secoud reading bill on salaries in Iiicbland county offices was read a second time. The bill changes the number of days on which the commission rs receive pay from 2o to 100 and tho coroner's sal ary is increased from $600. to $6o0. Practically ali of the third read ing bills passed to the house without tur? question and one or two second reading-bille went to third reading. Appreciation Bill. The general appropriation bill was taken up. Provision was made for more money for the stenographers. Mr. Pyatt wanted the quarantine officer at Georgetown paid $650, a j raise of $200. He has a family of 13 I and that commended the request for the increase. Mr. Banks opporsed the increase be cause the little increases counted. Mr. Browning opposed and Mr. Doar and Mr. Sinkler wanted the in crease allowed. The increase was al lowed. Mr. D. 0. Herbert wanted to reduce the appropriation for Winthrop. He proposed to cut off $1,000 from the general support. He said he thought the board asked for 56,884. The com mittee evidently includes $1,000 for library which is hot used. The board asks for $2,000 but it used only $1,300 last year and lie did not think Win throp needed $2,000 for its books. The Citidal gets only $250 for its library. The Winthrop library is very fine and the State could not afford to put so much iii thc library but he thought $1,000 ample. Mr. Richards said the increased ap propriation for Winthrop was $1,515, 77 for support, caused by increased, attendance.- They were given $1,500 additional foi* city water. The com mittee did not grant $1,500 asked for. Mr. Herbert said he simply wanted to sut the library appropriation to $1,000 instead of $2,000. Mr. Beamguard took up the defense of the appropriation. Mr. Laney wanted that much or more for thc library. He wanted a liberal allowance for Winthrop. Mr. Sinkler defended thc library and explained that the money ought to bc granted; ' The proposition to cut the Winthrop appropriation was lost. Thc committee reported on an in crease of $1,500 for the support of Winthrop and allowed the South Car olina college for increases $1,989.25 and $2,000 for expansion of the law departmen. This is the first time withis 15 years that lhere has not been some sort of fight on the appro priations for tile South Carolina col lege and the Citidal, not even a motion being made on either of them. The ways and means committee, particu larly Mr. Richards and Mr. Frost, handled this finely. ? The house refused to allow the city of Columbia more money for water. There was considerable pleasant discussion on Mr. Clifton ?s motion to allow $500 for improvements for thc Stale house grounds. The money was to he used for sidewalks and garden ing in the capitol grounds? On motion of Mr< Richards the amendment wa? tabled by a vote of 36 to 26. For Pensions. Mr; Bradhain moved to amend the 'jill by making the appropriation for pensions $225,000 instead o*f $200,000. Mr. Frost for the committee explained that it,was the intention to make the amount $225,000 if the pension bill now' pending is passed. He moved te lay the amendment on the table but I withdrew it for further discussion. Mr. Ashley was generally a reducer but he favored the increase of $25,000 for the old soldiers. Mr, Brantley, Mr. Tribble and Capt. Ardrey favored the increase for the vetrads, liri Richards Said the ways and means- committee favored the increase hut did not feel authorised in putting tte increase in the bill until it was in corporated in the laws. Mr. Yeldell said this increase was due and it was better to increase the allowance than to provide a Confederate home. Mr. Gray of Darlington favored the increase and thought it timely.

A ball given at Paggett, Cal., in hon or of Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Hart of Bars tow, who had just beens married, was broken up by the appearance on the ballroom floor of ? lanky desert burro, astride of which sat James H?rgail, a well known prospector. The upper strata of Daggett were present, the best musicians in fifty miles had been J employed, and for three days the floor of the ballroom had been rubbed down with wax until every board shone like glass. In the middle of the dance, while sixty couples were gracefully gliding about, the door was suddenly thrown open and, with a genuine desert whoop, in rode Horgan. The burro, ac- 1 customed to tread carefully along the steep declivities where a misstep . meant death, pick?d its way almost j to the center of the floor. The dane- j ers fell back amazed. Suddenly its legs slipped from un der the animal. Staggering to regain j its footing it cut numerous grotesque antics, and. finally turned almost "a complete somersault. By degrees lt was assisted up, and Horgan disap peared, but the ball was not resumed. Twelve-Year-0ld'3 First Deer.

SOO Boxes oi For the moa up from theo Y - I - O - 031 people will Around the fireside or about the well lighted family reading table during the winter evenings the children and grown-ups can play with their wits and see bow many words can bc made. 20 people making the greatest num ber of words will each receive a little box containing a $10.00 gold piece. 10 people will each win one box con raining a $5.00 gold piece. 300 people will each win a box con taining $1.00 in paper money and one person who makes the highest number of words over all contestants will re ceive a hos containing $100.00 in gold. It is really a most fascinating bit of fun to take up the list evening after evening and see how many words can be added. A few rules are necessary for abso lute fair play. Any word authorized by Webster's dictionary will be counted, but no name of person. Both the singular and plural can be used, as for instance "grape" and "grapes." The letters in "?-I-O-Grape-Nuts" may. be repeated In the same word. Geographical names authorized by Webster will be counted. * Arrange the words in alphabetical classes, all those begining with A to together and those beginning with E to come uuder E, etc. When you are writing down the words leave some spaces in the A. E. and other columns to fill in later as new words come to you. for they will spring Into mind every evening. It is almost certain that some con testants will tie with others. In such cases a prize identical In value and character with that offered In that class shall be awarded to each. Each one will be requested to send with the list of words a plainly written letter describing the advantages of Grape Nuts, but the contestant ls not required to purchase a pkg. These letters are not to contain poetry, or fancy flour Ishes, but simple, truthful statements of fact For illustration: A person' may have experienced some-incipient or chronic ails traceable to unwise se lection of food tbat failed to give the body and brain the energy, health and power desired. Seeking better condi tions a change In food is made and Grape-Nuts and cream used in place of the former diet. Suppose one quits the meat, fried potatoes, starchy, sticky messes of halt-cooked oats or wheat and cuis out the coffee. Try, say, for breakfast a blt of fruit, a dish of Grape-Nuts and cream, two soft-hoiled eggs, a ilico cf bard toast and a cup of Postum Food Coffee.

A -group of traveling men were dis cussing unique feats and physical tricks that people here and there* can do. "I know a Chicagoan," said one, "who can whistle a tune and hum its accompaniment at the same time. He. whistles through a flat, not through the usual round hole, arid the deep, musical accompaniment together with tht shrill sweetness of the whistle makfcs a mighty attractive thing to hear." "I knew a barber," said the second drummer, "who had a unique way of cracking nuts. He would place a nut between the back of his head and a stone or brick wall, and then he would give himself a sharp rap on the forehad with his fist The nuts would crack open every time." "A Manayunk man," said the third, "can give his head a jerk that turns . back his eyelids. He has tb turn them down again with his fingers. This is an ugly feat, and I'm glad it is rare." "I knew at school," said the fourth drummer, "a ' boy named Bucky Ad ams who could play lunes by snapping his fingers. The thumb and first two fingers of each hand would workaway busily, and iorth would come the clear est, sweetest, faintest music. I used to sit with Bucky Adams and many a te dious school session would he make shorter and pleasanter with this odd gift" f Greenbacks t, word? made e letter?
