TAKE AWFUL RISK.
Very Next Dose of Treacherous Drug
May Sturt Terrible Salivation. j
The next dose of calomel you take
may salivate you. It may shock your
liver or start bone necrosis. Calomel
is dangerous. It is mercury, quick-'
silver. It crashes into sour bile like .
dynamite, cramping and sickening
you. Calomel attacks the bones and
should never be put into your system.
If you feel bilious, headachy, con
stipated, and all knocked out, just go
to your druggist and get a bottle of
Dodson's Liver Tone for a few cents,,
which is n harmless vegetable substi
tute for dangerous calomel. Take a
spoonful, and lt it doesn't start your
?ver and 'tralghton you up better
and o a ' ck er than nasty calomel, and'
without making you sick, you just go !
back and get your money..
Don't take calomel! It cannot bo
trusted any more than a leopard or j
a wild-cat. Take Dodson's Liver Tone
which stn Ightens you right up andi
makes you feel fine. -,ro salts neces
sary. Give it to 'ho children because
it ls perfectly harmless and cannot

Governor Harvey's First Act.
Columbia, May 25, - Governor
Harvey performed his first official
act to-day when he signed a notary
public commission for a lady, Miss
M. I). Reid, of Spartanburg. The
Governor was asked by newspaper
men if he had a leaning for tho la
dies, and ho replied that tho signing
of a woman's commission as tho first
in a batch of notary public commis
sions was as a sort, of tribute to tho
now feminine voters of tho Stato and
to tho ladles generally. "But nobody
can accuse me of doing this to cater
to tho femlnlno vote, for I nm not
going to offer for re-oloction," the
Govornor laughingly added.

In bathing beach costumes. Certainly
enough has been said about tho bath
ing beauties of thc west coast to ac
quaint people with the truth about
them; but we cannot let go by what
this writer says'without calling at
tention to tho exaggeration, to say
the le?\st. We quote him:
"Tho dress for both men and wo
men is made just like tho Indians
wore in the primitivo ages, every
inch of their limbs being entirely ex
posed. Some of them havo hardly
enough clothes on to Hag a train. In
tho pavilion where they dress and
undress is a long alby with little
rooms about six feet square Thc al
ley is about four foot wide, thc loft
hnr.d booths being for the ladies and
tho right-hand booths for thc men.
Fach door bas a lock and key. Here
they leave all ?heir belongings
clothes, Jewehy. money, modesty,
dignity and womanhood. And they
go into the water like cattle."
If that description fits tho class
and kind ho has been associating
with down here. Iben w< advise his
homo folk to ^ei some ono to keep
an eye on tho old gentleman while
he ls out. Certainly tho great rank
and file of the men and women who
bathe in west coast waters uro manly,
womanly, modest without hoing
prudes, and altogether aro as fine,
clean folk as we have ever seen.
When we come to (bink of it, tho
only case wo ever knew of whore a
man and a woman went swlmmin' In
only their "ectoplasm" was up in
his county, In a creek called Changa,
somowhere between tho county seat
and that busy town immediately

Six Members of Crow Missing.
Brest, France, May 23.-Tho Brit
ish vice consul hero to-day announc
ed that 102 of tlioso who wore on
board the British steamship Egypt,

day night, aro missing, of whom 1G

missionaries, aro among those miss
ing and aro presumably lost. .Many
of tho dead brought in by boats were
wearing lifo bells, and had evidently
died from exhaustion. The fog was
so thick off UShant Island at the timo
of tho collision between the Egypt
and the French freighter Seine that
tbe inhabitants of tho islands in tho
region had been living for three days
in almost complete darkness, with
all outdoor work suspended. Tho
sudden rise in temperature In North
ern Prance is given as the reason for
tho unusually heavy fog.
Accounts of tho disaster given by
survivors and tho captain's reports
indicate that tho loss of life would
have been much smaller had not tho
fop, been so thick as io hamper the
rescuers. Sailors on the Pre?en
steamer declare thal they observed
several struggles bet woe ll survivors
for places of snfoty on pieces of the
wreckage. Tho survivors' accounts
ind?calo that everything was done by
the ofllcors and crows of the two ves
sels to prevent loss of life, except in
the cases of a few Indian seamen,
who lost their heads and fought for
life belts and places In the boals. A
