MA. W. Hester on the Tick Trial, so
Yeeteurday I went to a tick trial.
T'oe weather was. awful; a st !ady W"
noertheast wihd with uunceesing rain.
Not a drop of stimulant in the crowd;
1 did see one fellow with a vial of
kartshorn. . er
Soon after. I got. there in camne a Lb
buggyload from Pickens, and. In a "
'abort time other well fild vehicles, t
with negro drivers, oamu in from all ou1
parts of the counmtr--finely.-dressed al
people, witnoses amnd jurors,
All this knokle~d mn. out of any wits.
I looked up and ~.own the tall man
from Pizcken9. whbo had on a c >at like a
:uy grandpa'c. overcoist, and then I y
looked' up and dlown those; fnely
dressed men and at their negro driv.
ers- and I began to think maybe I'
ver saw a tick. That they might
larger than the calf they were
ving about, because I beard a truth
woman say the calf was not

ne one say that the calf walked
-ough the cracks of a feuoo, and it

But soie of the crowd were not

I had come out with more ticke

entiugay, that he would have to

d, "ticks are as liable to drop off

%ins are if I couldn't tell what they
r'e made of. I don't know much,
L it seems to me that such under
kings a' that would th.ow a shadow
or our institutions of learning.
But the finely-dreassed men were so
