A Bishop Wilmer Anecdote.
The following anecdote appeared in a
recent issue of the Confederate Veter
"Bishop Wilmer, of Alabama, was a
very straightforward man, with a fac-
slty for saying good-naturedly sharp
things to, rather than about, people.
"Boon after the Civil War Bishop
Wilmer went to a Northern city to
ask aid for a Confederate orphans’
home in which he was interested.
Tkere was a dinner in his honor, and
after dinner the bishop was begged to
tell a story. Me replied that he hadn’t
any story. ‘But.’he added, ‘I’ve got
a conundrum : Why are the Southerners
"The guests, who were all Union
men, suggested many answers. The
Southerners were like Lazarus because
they were i>oor, because they ate the
crumbs from the rich man’s table, be
cause—because of everything anybody
< owld guess.
" ‘No,’ said the bishop, 'you’re all
wrong. We’re like Lazarus because’
and he smiled blandly ‘because we’ve
been licked by dogs.’
"A roar of laughter went around at
that, for the bishop’s utter unrecon
structedness was always one of his
charms. Everybody laughed hut one
man. who became indignant. ‘Bishop,’
he said, 'if you think we’re dogs, why
have you come up here for our money
for the money of dogs?’
"The bishop chuckled. ‘My friend,’
■aid he, ‘the hair of the dog is good
for the bite. That’s why I have
Don’t Forget the Poor.
During the Christmas holidays, dur
ing the good cheer and happiness that
will prevail in your prosperous homes,
don’t forget the less fortunate around
you, the sick, the afflicted, the be
reaved. the homeless, the widow and
the orphan, etc. Christmas shoudl be
a religious festival not a drunken de
bauch—and every living thing on earth
is at least entitled to a kind word or a
sincere congratulation or sympathy,
.lust these is all that is needed to
brighten and strike a responsive chord
in many a dear and stuggling heart.
Others need something more substan
tial in addition. All should be provid-
cdjfor on this day. We have nearly all
been blessed too much, and our wants
too bountifully supplied, to admit of
ns permitting anyone to go hungry,
cold or suffer for any noceasnry on
Christmas. This ought to be the day for
substantial charity and sincere heart
warming in our cnlondar. We learn
that there are no organizations in Ea-
tonton to look after these pleasures
for pleasures they should he—which
makes the individual responsibility all
the greater. Devote just a small por
tion of your time and substance even
to making others happy and you will
lind that it will bring ronl, true happi
ness to you. It is the greatest thing in
religion after all, so far as self-conduct

In reply he stated that he would be
very glad to pass another summer va

changes wore made about the place.
"First," wrote the college president,

trust you will at least not allow her to

"Secondly, I would suggest that

Once there was a man who bought a
beautiful gold brick for which he paid
the sum of $10 or $15, although it
looked exactly as if it were worth ten
or fifteen thousand.
Then ho took it home, and, opening
his ledger, made an entry which mate
rially .swelled his assets.
Then ho mortgaged his homo and
bought an automobile and a season
ticket for the opera and gave a large
dinner at Sherry's. And why should he
not, for wa» he not a rich man, and
could he not prove it by his ledger?
And then one day it occurred to him
to examine his gold brick a little more
closely. Whereupon he found that it
was worth only 10 or 15 cents.
He lost confidence immediately, and
the effort he made to get rid of the
brick brought on a severe panic.
There are twenty million acres of
pine-garden forest standing in Prussia
to-day. Half of it belongs to the peo
ple in common, either to the State or
to the villages. It paid forty years
ago an average profit of eighty cents
an acre per year. To-day it pays $1.05
an acre. In twenty years, when it is
more mature, it will pay three dollars
nn acre, net profit, and, in addition to
its protective value, will return, from
the common forest alone, an income of
$80,000,00u a year to the people. It
furnishes all the firewood and small
lumber of Prussia, paper stock, and
other valuable materials, besides pro
tecting the streams, and holding down
and improving the land.—John L.

A Simple Matter.
Referring to the existing hope in the
South that the Republican revolt in the
West against the Payne-Aldrich tariff
law will bring about both Democratic
ascendancy and a real revision of the
tariff, the Washington Post pointedly
observes: ‘‘The heavy toll the free
trade South has paid to the protected
North for many years should De added
to the race issue in accounting for
Southern solidarity. Nor should the
fact be last sight of that the South feels
that it has been mulcted of many mil
lions in the matter of pension appropri
ations, all of which has gone to the en
richment of the North. While it can
not expect to get relief from the war
burden except by the slow process of
the law r of nature, the South is looking
forward to a time when the inequalities
of the tariff will he wiped out and the
General Government restored to the ba
sis of a square deal for all sections.”
Discussing the same subject recently,
the New Orleans Picayune truthfully
asserted that for many years the Gov
ernment of the United States has been
"carried on chiefly for the benefit of
the States north of the Potomac and
Ohio rivers. ”
The South has been "solid” because
of such manifest and long-continued in
justice as this, as well as because of
the negro question and because the
majority of our people for a hundred
years have preferred the political prin
ciples taught by Thomas Jefferson to
those of the old Federalist party, to
those of the Whigs, and during the last

"Why,” said “Brantley, thatisan up

of it, you know, and his aggressive con

• OLD SORES
Every old sore is an infected spot on the flesh, kept
open by constant drainage of impure blood into tht place.
One of the principal constituents of blood is plasma,
a healing property. Where the circulation is pure this
element of the blood, which is of a glutinous or sticky
nature, performs the necessary work in healing all sores,
wounds and lacerations. It does this by sticking or
joining the parts together, while nature causes a knitting
of the tissues and solidifies the place.
This healing property is frequently destroyed by
impure accumulations iu the blood, and this vital fluid
not only loses its power to heal, but becomes a source of
irritation and disease to anv open sore or ulcer ou the
body. Constantly it discharges its morbid matters into
the place, and gradually it causes the infection to
spread, and the sore enlarges. The morbid matter in the blood comes
from different causes. A long spell of debilitating sickness, which breeds
disease germs in the system, the retention of the refuse matters of the body
because of a sluggish condition of th<
eliminative members, a continued ma
larial state of the system, inherited bau
blood, etc., are usually responsible.
S. S. S. heals sores and ulcers li
the very simplest way. It just goes
into the circulation, and removes the
impurities and polluted matter that are
the means of keeping the ulcer open
then the sore is bound to heal. S.S.S. is
the greatest of all blood purifiers, amt
not only does it cleanse the circulation
but it adds every necessary property to
it to promote good health. It is of the
very greatest tonic value, and those who
have been weakened and run down by
the constitutional drainage of an old.
sore will find it the very remedy needed.
S.S.vS. docs not simply cause a scab to come over an old sore, but beginning at
the bottom it heals the place permanently by building new tissue and filling
in the place with firm, healthy flesh. Special hook on Sores and Ulcers and.
