During the Fair a young man named Chester Watson, who lives in Taylor county, made his appearance in Columbia, and at once proceeded to raise a little money by passing forged checks. At the store of Mr. Frank Sinclair he made a small purchase and presented a check for $8.50, made payable to Roy Burress, and endorsed by Bur-res- s. He received the balance due on the face of the check, left and went to the store of Russell & Co., and presented a check with the name of Mr. J. R. Tutt signed to it. This firm happened to know Mr. Tutt's signature,, and refused to cash the check. He then went to the store of Mr. N. B. Kelsay, disposed of a check of $5, aud from there he called on Mr. J. W. Sublett, Cane Valley, leaving a check and receiving cash in return. The victims soon learned that they had been swindled, and steps were taken to have Watson arrested. The Taylor county authorities were notified, and last Wednesday the Elisor of said county made the arrest and delivered his prisoner to the Sheriff of Adair county. The accused was brought before County Judge Moss, and he waved an examination and confessed his guilt. nis trial will be called at the Sep- tember term of Circuit Court, and until that date the prisoner will likely remain in jail Happy Gathering, Marriage Licences. 5 berry, premiums were - Mare mule 1 year, under 2, Tilden awarded during the four days of the Wheeler, Oolumbia Fair: Mare mule, under l year, T.

Woman's in it was foretold before the campaign was even started. It is a known fact that several of the political parties, for instance, the Socialist, the Prohibitionists and the Progressives have equal suffrage planks in their platforms, while it is understood that Woodrow Wilson js unfavorable to the idea himself, has assented to the request of his Nation al committee to send women speakers. into the states where equal suffrage is now permitted. The Republicans will also have a corps of women orators ill the canvass, and it is said they will not confine their work to the states which have abolished sex lines in the ballot. It is an undisputed fact that one good woman can successfully handle more men in an election, than a dozen men. In 1892 the women of Wyoming voted for President which had equal suffrage from the time of its organiza tion in 1869, but which did not become a State until 1890. In the campaign of 189G, Wyoming was joined by Col-- j orado, Idaho and Utah in the wortfijn suuaage list. These four statj-srooalone in this column aftejwara, utitil this year, when Washington will join them, which extended the ballot to women in 1910, and, by California, which put forward the equality of women and men in voting in 1911. And now in six states, and possibly seven, the women will vote on November 5, for President, on the same terms as men. The possible addition to the list is Ohio, which in a special election on September 3, will vote on a new constitution, cue of the provisions of which is equal suffrage. Over 1,000,000 women will cast ballots for President in 1912, and these votes will represent 37 votes in the Electoral College, therefore it can be seen that the woman vote this year will be of some consequence to tne canaitate who shall get it. It seems that the Republican campaign managers are aroused to the importance of securing the support of d E. R. Baker to Mary D. Bryant. W. B. Yates to Sarah M, Garrett. W. W. Wilson to Mary L.

Last Monday evening quite a number of the younger set were entertained by John D.

Refreshments of cream and dainty cakes were served. ! - His Conscience Hurt Him. A few weeks ago Mr. Elzy Damron, who makes his home with his Mr. J. H. Young, received a note mailed at Ozark, which read as follows: Mr. Elzy Damron: "Fifteen years ago I was at your house. You was in your corn crib shelling corn. 1 saw a dollar lying on the floor.

In general women are readier talkers than men, and they will inject into the. campaign a dash of novelty in the nature of oratory.

The first thing in order was the election of League officers for the ensuing term, followed by a prayer. Two humorous recitations were then given, one by Miss Mabel Atkins, the other by Miss Zella Pelley. Thev were well received and enjoyed by all present. A solo followed by Miss Hogard, which was highly appreciated. Rev. Weldon then delivered a short address in his usual happy mood. Miss Nettie Clark also made a very interesting talk.

"While the snail has lungs, heart and a general circulation and is in every respect an air breathing creature, it can nevertheless exist indefinitely without inhaling the least breath of air, the element that is usually considered the essential to existence in all creatures supplied with lungs. "To all organized creatures," said Leppert, "the removal of oxygen, water, nourishment and heat causes death to ensue." When that statement was made Leppert did not appear to consider the snail as one among the great host of "organized beings," for experiments by Spallanzani have proved that any or all the usual life conditions can be removed in the case of the snail without terminating its existence or in any way impairing its functions. The common snail retreats into his shell on the approach of frosty weather, and the opening or mouth of its shell is hermetically sealed by a secretion which is of n silky texture and absolutely impervious to air and water In this condition it is plain that it is deprived of three of the four elements of life mentioned above air, water and nourishment. Harper's "Weekly Statue With Umbrella. Some poor art is to be seen in this country in the shape of statues dedicated to the memory of great men. but uo American enormity in this line quite equals that which was perpetrated by an English sculptor for the town of Heading. When the fellow townsmen of a certain George Palmer of that place decided to honor his memory they determined upon a bronze statue of which should be not merely a portrait as to features, but a correct presentment of him as he appeared among them every day. Accordingly, the stranger in Reading is startled by the most unconventional of statues, with every crease and wrinkle of the homely afctire of the original reproduced. To complete the effect the statue is bareheaded, with silk hat and umbrella in hand. It Is thought that this is the only Instance in which the necessary but not entirely beautiful umbrella has been reproduced in bronze. New York Sun.

The Dutch are HolNew landers from the Netherlands. York was first settled by the Dutch from Holland. The first Germans came to this country in 1GS2 and settled at Germrintown. It Is estimated that the Germans and their descendants in Pennsylvania numbered 100,000 at the time of our revolution. The descendants of these are called the Pennsylvania Germans or Dutch.

The best way to dry up a cow when you are ready to allow her resting period, according to Professor C. n. Is to milking her at once. Some belie; it necessary to milk her once a da for awhile; some think it necessary strip her partly out each day for Mime time. Rut Professor Eckles says this is not necessary. He has seen cows dried off many times by this method and has yet to see any harmless effects from it. Unfortunately the average cow fed on the average ration is altogether too willing to take any sort of a hint on cutting off the milk supply. Ec-kle- s. fectants. irR--- l It E I) " JLJj i -Ml .

Color and BEADY Materials For Milady's New Hat- Sexes Should Be Separated to Secure Best Results, As soon as the sex can be determined it is well to put the pullets by themselves. They will grow fatter and do o 10,-00- I ! better. In fact, they should be fed differently from the cockerels, for you will want to get them in shape for early egg production. Now, it is not well to force them prematurely into opg production, but it is best to get them In condition so that they will begin to lay during the fall. This is the harvest time, for it is then that you will get the highest prices paid for eggs. If you have a nice lot of pul lets that are laying during the fall aud early winter you will get splendid re turns from them. These pullets as soon as separated should be given a clean house and kept free from lice. If you find when making the division that some of them have lice it would be well to powder them and put them all iu a small house, where you can attend to them before putting them in their regular quarters. Feed plenty of bran and beef scrap and keep oyster shells before them. They will come along nicely when away from the annoyance of the cockerels, and after they have become used to their new home and see one another they will grow like weeds and soon look like mature birds. j d.

Bedouins Do Not Look Upon Coward-ic- o as a Disgrace. The idea that nothing Is so disgrace- $ ful as cowardice is one that is not held by all races. Among the Bedouins a sheik may be the lender of his tribe only in peace. When there is war the chances are that he will relinquish his I leadership to the fighting sheik. "i have not the gift of courage," once said an Arab chief to an Englishman, apologizing for not putting himself at the head of a band that he had sent to I attack another tribe. The Englishman learned that these nomads esteem personal bravery as a gift, for the want of which a man is no more to be censured than he is to be blamed for not being handsome. A Bengali says, without the least sense of shame, "I am timid." Yet he will meet death, even when it approaches in the form of the hangman, with the composure of a martyr. The following instances illustrate strikingly this double nature of the Bengali. A native had been sentenced to death for killing his wife. On the morning of the execution the officer who was superintending the hanging entered the condemned man's cell. Instead of finding him crouching in terror he was surprised to be greeted with a low bow and a request. The man wished for some sweetmeats with which to refresh himself on his way to the gallows. They were ordered, and on their arrival the procession set out The doomed man ate the sweetmeats with a relish as he calmly walked along the way of death. When the gallows was reached the crowd which S had followed seated themselves on the $ ground. The man waited a few seconds to finish the last morsel, then I mounted the gallows with composure and was swung off. Strange as it may seem, that man would have been panic stricken at the rush of some wild rumor, nis timidity was natural, but his religion and discipline had trained him to accept with calmness the inevitable.

The constitution of the United States and the constitutions of the various states in prohibiting cruel and unusual punishments were not fighting an ab--r surdity. The use of torture in legal processes was not, when these Instru- ments were framed, so remote as it is now. When Sir Thomas Dole came as high marshal to Virginia he crushed a con- spiracy by killing the ringleaders by torture. One had a bodkin thrust through his tongue and was chained to a tree until he died. Others were broken on the wheel. It is quaintly stated that Sir Thomas was "a man of good conscience and knowledge in divinity." Dole's date was 1G11. The next notable instance of the use of torture was in 1C92, in the Salem witchcraft excitement, when Giles Cory was pressed to death the "peine dure et forte." the most horrible of deaths. Executions were in public throughout the east until comparatively recent times. When Quelcli, the pirate, and six others were hanged in Boston, Sew-a- ll wrote in his dhlry, "When the scaffold was let to sink there was such a Bcreech of the women that my wife heard it, sitting in our entry next to the orchard," though the gallows was a mile away aud the wind unfavorable. The use of torture to wring the truth from witnesses is said to have been recognized as legal in Austria until well within the last century. Needless Use of Opiates. It is perhaps a conservative estimate that only 10 per cent of the entire druj: consumption in this country is applied to the purpose of blunting incurable pain. Thus 00 per cent of the opiates used are, strictly speaking, unnecessary. In the innumerable cases that have come under my observation 73 per cent of the habitual users became such without reasonable excuse. Beginning with small occasional doses, they realized within a few weeks that they had lost self control and could uot discontinue the "use of the drug. Charles B. Towns in Century.
