James Turk, a guileless citizen of De- *
troit was ambliDg around St. Louis the
other day, when a stranger stopped t<
him, offered him a cigar and said : j
"You have a frank and honest face, tj
and I appeal to you to do me a ]
favor." ti
"Well, I reckon I will, unless you
want to borrow money." '
"Oh, no ! no! You see that clothing
store over there? Well, on the '
left as you go in is a counter full of 8
overcoats. I want one the worst way, 1
but the price is $20, and I don't want w
to pay over $15. I could have beaten a
him down, I think, except that we I
both got mad and I left." n<
"Well, what do you want or me?" ?
"Simply go in and offer him $15. j
If he accepts bring the coat to me on pj
the corner below. If he refuses, you w
will have my gratitude all the same." j
James promptly consented, and o]
when he offered $15 for one of the je
coats the dealer promptly accepted. It j
was done up in a neat bundle, and Mr. ^
Turk carried to the corner for delivery ^
and payment. The other party was
not there. Mr. Turk waited half an '
hour?three-quarters?over an hour, J"
and the idea crept through his wool
that he had been sold. He returned 1
to the clothier and asked:
"What is your asking price for these '8
overcoats ?" J
"Eight dollars." ri
"But I paid you $15!" w
"Oxactly. Vhen a man comes in k<
und likes to pay me dot price I vhas 1
foolish to drive him avhay 1" g<
Mr. Turk reached home with two b<
overcoats, and he is so pale and quiet in
and sad-appearing that his friends j
whisper their fears of consumption. w
Had Suspended.?"Ah 1" he said, w
as the door opened, "but do I address j
the lady of the bouse ?" p<
"No, sir," replied the girl, as her pi
face melted a little. "I am the house- n<
keeper." j
"Urn. She is out then ?" ?
"Yes, sir. Gone to the skating rink." m
"And the gentleman ?" je
"He's gone off to a raffle."
"Um. Any daughters ?"
"Two of 'em, sir. The oldest, which ^
is Fannie, is across the way learning r{
how to play eucher, and the other,
which is Susie, has rigged up as an
actress, and gone down to have a statuesque
photograph taken."
"Um. No sons ?" m
"Only one, sir, and this is the hour J
when he takes his boxing lessons.
Did you wish to see anyone in partic- tr
ular ?" tr
"Well, I'm taking in orders for the 1
Family Bible, and I was in hopes to tb
secure a subscriber. Perhaps you n<
could?1" . cr
"Oh, it's no use talking, sir," she sp
interrupted, as the door began to close, j
"My beau brought me in 15 dime nov- of
els last night, and I go to three dances le
a week, and I'm just catching on to su
the old sledge, and, really, sir, you m
had better hit the family next door. I j
think we have suspended business in 3,

The tendency of a narrow tire on a
heavy wagon is to tear up the surface
of a roadway constructed of any loose
material packed together, while the
tendency .of the wide tire is to compress
tne material under it, and thue
serve, in a large measure, as a road
maker and not a road destroyer. The
preference of farmers who have used
them for farm wagons is well known
By a careful test it Has Deen iouno
that a two-horse team will haul 530
pounds more across ordinary unplow
ed fields with three inch tires that
they will haul with 1} inch tires, and
830 pounds more than with one-inch
tires. The. reason, remarks The Breed
era' Gazette, is that the wide tire passing
over the ground, while the narrow
tire outs into it. This is true to ever
a greater extent on soft roads, and tc
a less extent on hard roads. And the
narrow tire not only increases the
draft, but it destroys the road. The
only reasonable objection to wide tires
1b that they find every unevenness ic
a rough road and magnify its rough
ness. Most of our roads are periodically
level, so that with the rolling effect
of wide tires they would soon become
smooth enough for carriage drives
But a few rains, followed by the cutting
action of narrow-tired wheels, reopen
the ruts, pry all the loose stoneE
to the surface, and furnish an excuse
for continuing the use of the narrow
tires. Such shameful waste and de
struction should be stopped by the
laws which discriminate against the
wheels that destroy and in favor ol
those which pack the surface of out
Rules for Thinning Fruit.?1
No tree should have more fruit on i<
than it can hold up well and mature
in perfection, that is to say, that the
trees should be not so loaded as to require
their being propped or so mucl
that the branches bend very severely
This checks the growth of the fruit U
such an extent as to injure the
2. Every time a tree has too mud
fruit, it weakens its vitality to such ac
extent as to require two or three
years to recover, or so checks itf
growth that it begins to decline and ie
permanently injured.
3. In the production of an ovei
crop it costs the tree more to ripen
the seed than to make the fruit.
4. If fiom a tree heavily loaded
there is taRen one-nair 01 even inreefonrtbs
of the fruit, there will be more
bushels of fruit than there would be
if all was left on the trees.
5. By this practice there will be
less poor fruit put upon the market,
aDd the good will bring better prices
and give infinitely better satisfaction,
6. Thinning makes the fruit of much
better quality, makes it keep longei
and produce finer, handsomer, more
attractive and much more desirable
and salable fruit.
7. When our orchardists shall look
upon thinning as important as cultivation,
pruning, care and attention, they
will succeed in supplying our markets
with perfect fruit and of the very best
quality, and thus increase the demand,
enhance the value and give vastly
more satisfaction to both the produces
and the consumer.
A New Fly Catcher.?A machine
for catching flies off of the backs oi
cattle and so affording the animals relief
and comfort has been invented by
a farmer in Madison county, Ky.
The flv catcher iB a kind of covered
pen or passage way through which the
auimal must walk to secure relief. A
few feet from the entrance there is a
cupola or dome, in the roof of the passage
way, made of glass and arranged
as a fly trap. Beyond this the pas
sage is in darkness. The animal walke
through the machine, and just as i(
passes under the dome and enters the
darkened part, a set of brushes sweeps
off the flies, which naturally rise into
the lightened dome, and the steei
passes out at the other end free ol
flies. The flies are retained in the
dome trap. The inventor has experimented
with his machine and finds
that the animals soon learn the value
of the machine and know enough to
walk through it when the flies begin
to bite. The device has been patented.
A Sweet Pickle.?A luscious sweet
pickle for serving with cold meats can
be made with a minimum of trouble
from the large, whole, ripe tomatoes.
Peel and slice thickly, and to each
seven pounds of the fruit add half the
weight of sugar, a quart of the best
cider vinegar, one ounce of cloves and
half an ounce each of cinnamon and
mace. Place all these ingredients in
? ;?
a granite preserving Ketwe uuu ic? n
stand all night, then bring to a boil
slowly and cook from one to one and
a half hours, or until it thickens. Seal
up in jars. The quality of this is
improved by removing as many of the
seeds as possible before slicing the
VST When fowls lay eggs that have
shells deficient in thickness it shows
that there is lack of lime in the feed.
Heavy fowls that do not ramble much
and are fed mainly on corn are most
liable to this difficulty. A supply of
lime in aDy form given at such times
will be greedily eaten. So will crushed
egg shells. It is a good plan to
crush and feed the shells of all eggs
used in the house. The hens will eat
them, but roosters will not. Uuless
egg-shells are crushed before feeding
they may teach fowls the bad habit of
eatiug eggs.
Iced Tea.?If you wish to have it
perfect and without the least trace of
bitter, put the tea iu cold water hours
before it is to be used ; the delicate
flavor of the tea and abuudautstrenglh
will be extracted, and there will not
be a trace?if one's taste is the judge?
of the tannic acid which renders tea so
ofteu disagreeable and undrinkable.
You need not use more than the usual
quantity of tea. If it is to be served
at a 1 o'clock meal, put in water soon
after breakfast, and ice a few minutes
before serviug. ^
Onions.?Onions mal^e a nerve tonic
not to be despised. /They tone up
the worn out system, and if eaten freely,
will show good results in cases of
; nervous prostration. If a sprig of
parsley is dipped in vinegar and eaten
t after an onion, no unpleasant odor
, from the breath can be detected. And
, in addition to this cheerful bit of infor,
mation, onions eaten freely are said to
' beautify the complexion.

i flour, if possible, in a cool, dry, airy
i room, where the temperature will be
) equable, not above 60 or 65 degrees. !
i Like butter, it will absorb odors readii
ly, and for this reason there should be
a separate place made for the accom

i onions. Always sift before using.
Remedy For the Hessian Fly.?
The following is said to be an efleotive
i means of destroying the Hessifta fly (

Nervous Prostration.
Summerville, S. C. Sept. 19, 1896.
Dear sir?I am very much pleased with
the Electro poise. I used it by your directions
and my nerves have greatly improved
as well as my digestion. Can now
stand twice as ranch mental work and
am growing in physical strength daily.
> Wish I had gotten an Electro poise at an
earlier date. Yours truly.
A Cure All.
Orangeburg, s. C.. June 17,1885.
i Gentlemen?We purchased one of
. your pocket Electro poises in December,
' 1893. We have tried it on every member
, of our family and found itall that isclaimed
for it. We have treated successfully
. with it, severe cold, chills, fever, diarrhoea,
etc. Its effect on teething children is wonderful.
Our family numbers seven and
we have not used a dollar's worth of med,
icine since we had the 'PoiM.
P Respectfully,
Mrs. L W. BOMAN.
Catarrh. 1
Lancaster, S. C., August 1,1891. 1
I consider the Electropoise a most won- j
derful discovery. I have applied it in mr
1 family for la grippe, acute sore throat, .
. neuralgia and nervous headache with
perfect success. I am also treating a
severe case of chronic catarrh with the
Electropoise as the agent, and it has given
great relief, and if treatment is continued
. I believe it will effect a perfect cure. An
intelligent use of it carries oonviction with
it. Yours truly, j
For All Ailments.
McClellandville, S. C., Aug. 14, 1896. j
Dear Sir?I purchased a 'Poise in February
'93 and it cured me of a chronic bad i
cold, and now I hardly ever take cold.
It also- cured me of lumbago and a dis- J
ordered liver. I use it in uiy family num- '
boring nine persons for all ailments. ;
Have only paid in physics and physi
cians fees during the time $1.60. Would <
not be without it for manytimes its cost. '
Respectfully, A. W. LELAND. I
Yorkville, S. C., January 15,1802.
Dear Siiwn reply to your inquiry win
say my wife is delighted with the effects
' of the Electropoise, and has Improved
very much from the treatment. The
, rheumatic pains have been very much
reduced, and the swelling in the limbs
disappeared. She had no faith whatever
in the Electropoise when she began, but
i is now fully convinced of its benefioial
powers; ana eventually looks for a per- '
1 manentcure. Yours very truly,
Catarrh, Piles, Dyspepsia, Etc.
Millettsville, S. C., Feb. 14,1896. *
Gents?The Eleotropotse has done all !
that you claimed for it. -1 bad a compli- ,
cation of disease^, catarrh, rheumatism,
piles and dyspepsia. I was nearly gone !
up, bad the knife used on the piles, and !
soon after got the Electropoise, need ac- j
cording to directions and am still using it. J
I was without energy or appetite, and am \
now a new man. Can eat three hearty :
meals a day, enjoy and digest the same. ;
Almost relieved of catarrh. I cannot say (
too much for It and recommend it to all J
that are sick. May God aid you in reliev- k
ing the afflicted. I have been a great 1
sufferer and know how to appreciate the 3
Electropoise. Very truly, . J

This is also the most complete railroad
map of South Carolina ever published, as
it gives the entire railroad system oi the

every station marked with figures from
official railroad guides. The names of the
railroads are printed on them; thus we

any two places.

census and a brief historical sketch of the
State with views of Charleston and large

The Autoharp Is one of the
most novel inventions of the
I age, representing perhaps
more than any other the triumphal
progressiveness of
A merican inventive geniua.
In size and shape the Auto- *h
harp resembles the zither, bat
I the scale is similar to the
j) grand harp. Padded mutes or
% dampers which are called
chord-bars or manuals,, are
placed over the strings. By
ESg pressing one of these bars ana
Bk running the fingers across the
mw; strings, a perfect chord is proWy
dnoea?soft and sweet or loud
? aad-strong.?as one may desire.
It is so . thoroughly musical,
and yet so thoroughly "simple,
that it seems to almost contradict
the statement that there ia
no royal road to learning.'
The Autoharp is so constructed
that, with the use of
the chord bars, those without
produce beautiful harmonies and play any
music, sacred,. operatic and popular songs
