The Winnie Davis monument
invites those Chapters of the

that contribute to this fund to
prepare inscriptions for the mon

was thus invited and it assigned
the task to Mrs. Sallie Lanier,
the author of that beautiful poem
on the return of our soldier boys
from Cuba. She wrote the fol
lowing too and received from
Mrs. Davis grateful acknowledge
' 'Blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see God. '

CREDIT DUE THE GOAT.
A correspondent to the News

impai.ts the information that
flocks of sheep are protected
from dogs by having one or more
billy goats among them. It is
known that Billy always has his

correspondent says that the

"How can I thank you for your
exquisite tribute to my darling ?
The verses are beautiful and

less studied, is one I should be
glad to have on my daughter's

your deepest sympathy and saw
you had nobly expressed it. To
quote the Scriptures, your words
are 'Apples of gold in pictures

The Philippine Bee.
The Progressive Parmer says
its Philippine correspondent
furnishes the following interest
ing description of a honey bee
"It is the giant honey bee,
known to science as Apris
Dousata. Its immense capacity
for making honey and war has
interested men of science here
and an early effort should be
made by the Department of
Agriculturel to introduce it into
the United States.
"It is nearly one-half larger
than the American native bee
and builds a comb, heavy with
wax and honey, five or six times
as large as those found in
American orchards and forests.
"They are found in the Moun-
tain regions all througn mam
and have been seen busily at
work at altitudes of 5,000 feet in
the Philippine Islands. Their
colonies are most numerous m
the mountains, as the unceasing
quest of the natives for their
honey combs has driven them
from the unprotected flatlands of
the coast to the less thickly in
habited and more heavily wood
ed mountain regions. The Fili
pinos find their daily bread
a rather easy proposition, but
they are very fond of honey on
tho staiT of life. There is also
a large demand for the wax for
use in dyeing.
"The big bees build their hives
on tall forest trees or on the
overhanging ledges of cliffs.
When undisturbed, branch
swarms build near the parent
colony, so that in a few years an
immense bee settlement often
grows up in the -forest. The
bees build a comb five or six feet
long, four feet wide and from
seven-eights to one and one half
inches in thickness.
"In appearance the giant bee
is a smoky, glittering, irridescent
black wasp-like figure, with
orange bands encircling its body. "
Small-Pax In Salisbury.
A negro by the name of Boger,
in a .part of, Salisbury called
Dixonville, is found to have
small-pox. Salisbury will, of
course, be on j)ins till the danger
of spreading is past.

'The Philadelphia Times thinks
very little of the talk of organ
ized boycotts for the French Ex
position but feels that it will be
a failure because the world feels
very liitle security in or for the
French nation. It regards France
as a smouldering - volcano that
would be liable to eruption at
that great gathering if not before
and without organized boycott
hundreds of thousands of people
who had intended to go to the
exposition will lack the enthusi
asm to go. This seems about the
size of the matter and as the
Times says, it is due to none but

A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE
SAVED DAUGHTERS LIFE.
I am the mother of eight child
ren and have had a preat deal of
experience with medicines. L ist
summer my little daughter had
the dysentery in its worst form.
We thought she would die. I
tried everything I could think of.
I saw by an advertisement in our
paper that Chamberlain's colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
was highly recooiineuded and
sent and got a bottle at once. It
proved to be one o! the very best
medicines we ever had in the
house. It saved my little daught
er's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
medicire it is. Had 1 known it at
first it would have s;ived me a
great deal of auxietv and my
little daughter much Luffaring.
