TltcS. C. State Fair. .
The premium list for the next
State Fair has been issued. It
offers many attractive and valu
able priz'?s. Send to A.W. Love
Chester, for a copy. It is not
too early to begin preparations
to send, enough exhibits to cap
ture Marlboro's share of prizes
offered this year.
One fact should make many
new exhibitors for the next Fair
-the Society pays the freight
?n ali exhibits grown or produ
ced in this State, thus enabling
exhibits to be sent to and re
turned from the fair without
cost to the exhibitor.
They Never Think.
. Thu newspaper men who are
everlastingly harping on "child
labor" consider everthing under
21 a child. Tliey would use the
terni "baby labor," but that
would be a little too much lying
The young person who works
is a credit to any neighborhood,
while especially the boy who is
brought up in laziness is as des
tructive and as noisy as a Co
manche Indian. Put the young
folks to work and they will not
overheat themselves in what is
called play, nor injure them
selves for life in "athletic exer
cise." Teach young peofrie that
productive labor is the most in
teresting form of play and they
will grow up to be useful men
and women. Teach the young
people "play" that is productive
and hot the play that endangers
limb and life and lands them in
a prison cell. Those who work
are too busy to become bad cit
izens.-Fibre and Fabric.
' BS?" Tho social feature of the
State Fair is an important item
in considering the advantages of
being an exhibitor, you meet the
best and most progressive far
mers and stock breeders in the
State, and make many friends
who are valuable to you. Then
prepare a good exhibit to go to
the next State Fair, Oct. 27-30.

Some years ago, when the examination
In colois of railroad mea was inau

amazing amount of color blindness in
America, and many a good maa lost
his job unjustly. These men hod boen
off iu the names of colors, not In tho
colors themselves. They could In a
day or two have been taught what they
lacked. Many of them, it is likely,
were not color blind. I say this be

How Romani Toole Their Food.
The Romans reclined at their ban
quets on couches, all supporting them
selves on oue elbow and eating with
their Angers from dishes placed in the
center of the table. Each was supplied
with a napkin, and knives were used,
though it does not appear that every
-one was supplied with ono. Nothing,
lt would seem, could be more fatiguing
than to partake of a. repast lu such an
awkward posture or less conducive to
ncalnoss, lt being almost impossible to
keep tho hands clean even with water
supplied by the slaves or to prevent the
food and wilie from falling on thc
clothing and the draperies of the couch.
This manner of outing disappeared
during the dark ages so far as the
couch wai concorncd, but the peculiar
ity of'taking the food with fingers from
a'common dish continued a f}erward(
tor more Iban i COO years.

used horsemen will have no other.
Ashcraft's Powders produce that
silky sheen of coat and hair so
admired by horse fanciers. The
Powders fatten but never bloat.
Always high grade and put up
in doses-never in bulk.
By the use of three or four doses
a week your horse or mule will
not be subject to colic or any dis
ease of the stomach and bowels.
"I had au old horse that was lu very had
condition generally. He waa thin and had ?
blood disease that was causing tho hair to
come orr. I gave thc horse three doses of Ash
craf t'a Condition Powders a day for seven days
and fed him liberally. Tho u?petite improved
from thc first few doses and the animal gained
fifty-two pounds in flesh during the week I
gave it three doses a day. The general health
of the animal was greatly improved by thc ?se
of the powders and ho was made almost a new
horse. I most heartily recommend Ashcraft's
Condition Powders, as I know they are o splen
did tonic snd appetizer.-C. C. SIK.ES, Livery
