OUT OF TOWN.
Strange as It may seem you will find
great many people who have no idea
i the incorporate limits of the town in
hich they live. Most smail towns
dally have an inci-poration of at
ast a mile radius from a central
iut, but Winnsboro varies in this
r, pect as well as In miny others from
te general endition of things. Her
corporate limits are one-half mile
e t and west from the e)art house and
t -fourths of a mile north and soth
.m the same pcint. But even with
t fact known, a few people still have
n idea of the real extent of the lim'ts.
eir conception of distance is so faulty
t they ei-her plac3 many who live in
t out of town or those who live-out
0 town In town. A great deal of
do t, therefore, exists In the case of
tb e who live near the limits. The

Now, when people talk atout 'pot

which was as follows, was listened to
with the greatest Interest by all stand
'-You know," said the non-resident,
"when I was a boy, a long time ago
we always set our tat~bit-gums, and it
was the very greatest delight of my
boyhoc d days to catch a rabbit In this
way'. I cantinued setting my rabbit
gum till I was quite a large boy, when
I tound the habit so firmly fixed upon
me that I could not thre w it off, and as
strange as it nmay seem to len, I still
set my rabbit gum every winter.
Last fall, according to my old habit, I
set my gum, and for a few mornings I
had such bad luck, that I quit going to
t; but on Thanksgiving morning I
was passing by It, when I noticed the
door was down. Curiosity caused me
to open it, and to my great surprise,
the box had a gr< a b'g 'possum, which
I had for my Thank'giving dinner
along with the usual turkey."
"Well, of couse," he continued,
"I kipt a close watch on that gum
after that, and without telling you
about the rabtil's caught between t'e
festivities, I had another great surprise
on Chrismss morning in the way of
another 'possum." Two possums in
one winter, said the Interested listeners.
"Why, yes;" continued the narator
of this out-of town experience, and
while you may net believe It, that is
just one half tU e number I have caught
s,, far. Why 1 began the new century
by ca'ching a 'p s uim In that same
gum on New Yeas 'a morning. My
next catch was on St. Vale rtintes' Day.
