and a great deal of the weather boarding
on one side was knocked off.
The building was not set on fire,

was falling at the time. The house
is occupied by a family of negroes,
but fortunately for ihem they were all
absent from home when the lightning
got in its work, an I consequently
there were no fatalities.

sad death at blythewood. ^
Theie is always something sad and
mournful in death, yet methinks the
fell destroyer never placcd his signet
on human brow under circumstances
more heartrending than those which
surrounded the death of Mrs. M. M. <
Cfinkscales, whose spirit winged its
flight to the God who gave it on July
15, 1897. She had lain on a bed of
afllictiou more than eleven weeks, yet
never murmuring, but always submissive
in the will of God. She went to
sleep as calmly and quietly as the ?
evening star sinks to rest on its ocean '
pillow. She did not shrink from encountering
alone the dark and chilling
waves of Jordan, for she had drunk
at Siloanrs fountain aud quafted at the
well of liviog water: and faith whis- '
pered she would
"Land on that happy shore,
Where billows never break and tem- ]
pest never roar."
For some time she felt that her end
was drawing near, and with a love :
and tenderness, J^odcep for utterance, |
she called h<v- mioband and children to j
her and ^ vc them each a farewell
message. She selicted the hymns she
wished sung and tho scripture she
wished read at her funeral. They
buried her at the Baptist Church of
which she was a member by the side of
her two little children, who were waiting
to welcome her home. A large
concourse of weeping relatives and ;
friend? followed her remains to their
last resting place, and lovingly and
tenderly Kid her in the grave. Human
wisdom could never have conceived
i I, ws? hpst for her to die. vet "the
Lord giveth and the Lord taketh awav;
blessed be the name of the Lord."
God saw lit to transplant her from this
world of gilded phantom? and fleeting
dreams to a more congenial clime.
Never again will we meet in this
world, but shi will not be forgotten,
for "oft in the stilly night" and in the
morniog light sweet memories will
come and life's music will ever breathe
for us a minor chord of sadness since
she is gone.
"I saw her when they laid her down
Upon the silent bier,
And many heaved the throbbing sigh
Aod shed the bitter tear,
: Low in the silent dust she sleeps,
Free from all toil and strife,
. Till started from the dreamless rc>t,
She wakes to endless life."

A tired stomach is \ery much like a
sprained ankle. If vou suffer irom
any of the symptoms of dyspepsia,
your stomach is tired. It needs a
crutch. We mnst relieve it of all woik
for a time, or until it is restored to its
natural strength. To do this succe?8ftillv,
we must u^e a food which is
already digested out6ide of the body,
and wbicli will aid the digestion of
other food that may be taken with it.

TILLMAN TALKS T* PSELIKJ.
We went to Greenwood on business
last Friday. The town was quiet.
The Clemson trustees went down the
road that morning. Most of them
took dinner at Riley's and Senator Ben
Tillman flayed at the hotel nntil the i
, train to Augusta left. This gave liim
something over two hours in town.
He 6ees something new and strange
every time he strikes Greenwood.
Once a brass band that had practiced
only two weekt serenaded him on the
street in broad day light. They came
out of a livery stable around a store
and surrounded him suddenly tooting
their boms. lie was so surprised that
i j ?

Last Friday the curiosity he saw was
equal to the brass band As he sit on j
Riley's piazzt the people congregated
around him. Among the number an
elderly man came up and expressed his
opiniun about the situation ia our
State. He said things were goin?
wrobg aud had been doing so ever
since Tillmanism triumphed. He said
South Carolina was always more prosperous
when the aristocracy governed
It was unfortunate for the people that
the aristocracy was ever put out of
office. Then the following dialogue
Tillman?"Are you an an-tocrat.""
P^eudo -"Yes, sir, I am."
Tillman?"I am glad yon hare told
me for I never would have taken you
to be one by your appearance. You
a;e a poor man, are you?''
Pseudy? "Ye*, I am a poor man."
Tillman?1"I suppose the poorer you
get, the prouder you are."
Pseudo-"Senator, you have been
dictating to the people of Sonth Carolina
for several years how to vote and
I wish 10 know how to vote in this
