In the history of Abbeville county, S. C.
On Friday night Julia Burton, "wile of
Ked Burton, was found dead in her bed
with a great gash in her head, evidently
pnade with an ax. The dead body of
pier husband was found suspended from
e rafter in the same room. One end of
a trace-chain had been run through
tne ring at tne otner end, so as
to mako a loop or slip-knot. This loop en
"circled his neck. The other end was
dastoned around the rafter. It was evident
That ho had done this work himself, and
dumped from the loft, as his neck was
(broken. It was a caso of murder and sui
jcido, the result of the husband's jealousy
fof his-wife. The deeds were committed
'"whilst the other members of the household
were absent at church.
On Sunday morning Charles Jenkins,
R railroad laborer, was talking with
&. woman with wliom he was
living. Peter Ashley stealthily crept
'up behind him and struck him in
the head with an ax,killing him instantly.
Jealously was the cause of this crime also,
the woman having fornierls' lived with
Ashley, whom she left to go with Jenkins.

respectively 10 and 12 years. These boys are
in jail and unhesitatingly confess that
They murdered their uncle. They talk
freely of their crime, and calmly show the
bloody spots on their clothing. They say
their uncle was cruel to them, and whipped
them severely on several occasions, and at
the time of the killing the boys were under
threat of another tevere beating. One of
them, sometime ago, ran away irom home
"because of cruelty, and Nash went after

stealthily stepped up behind and dealt him
m fearful blow on the head with a hatchet.
Nelson baid, "oh God," and rushed out
Into the yard where ho fell to the ground.
The two boys then beat him to death with
& heavy pole, ax and a hoe, mangling his
body in a horrible manner. The youthful
Snurdererstied the dead man's feet with
a chain, hitched the chain to a single
tree and took the horse and dragged him
off across a cotton field at noon on
Sunday to a neighboring galley, and there
covered him with pine lops. They charge
Alfred Johnson, about 12 years oid, with
insisting in the work of hauling off and
concealing the body. Alfred is also in jail.
The final tragedy of the week culminated

And at her beauty's shrine a moment kneel,
To mark the sweetness of her gentle lace.

Within my memory, as some distant stntin
Of music, rising slowly, dies a'vray,
But lingers yet when all is still again.

When care is bound by all forgetting sleep,
Too soon will vanish, but yet leave behind
A gentle sweetness that the senses keep.

John Kenyon always made a point of
asking any foreigner who was also a
stranger in London to a small dinner of
three or-f our that h& might have an oppor
tunity of making intimacies before being
launched into general society. At Ken
yon's table there was a marked absence of
all reviewers or appraisers of literary wares;
and he was strongly averse from encourag
ing a "mutual admiration" clique. He
had a fine sense of the fitness of things.
"I never a3k Dickens and Thackeray to
gether now. I did so once, and found it
was a mistake," said Kenyon to the writer,
adding, with a touch of humor peculiarly
his own, "and I do not always ask hus
band and wifo to the same parties. They
are addicted to setting each other right
about small details, which is very aggra
vating, and often turns the point of a
story. What does it matter whether tho
bishop met 'Devil Crosse' and 'Satin Mont
gomery at tho Browns on Friday or at tho
Smiths on Monday? It is enough for us to
know that his lordship was in good com
pany. "The Sydney Smiths," Kenyon went on
to say, "are a couple who ought to be asked
together, for she leads up to her husband's
jokes and laughs at tho right moment. I
remember their neighbor Esdaile saying
she must have been well beaten before she
could have been brought into such good
training. But Esdaile had a grudge against
Sydney Smith for calling the country gen
tlemen of Somerset 'the fat Boeotians.' "

"There is not a moro popular little wo

of gout that ho could not get out of bed. A
lot of us fellows used to go up and keep
him company. Marie was playing with
Wilson at that time and was stopping at
the same hotel.
"The Chicago manager was an old friend
of hers and when she. heard of his sorry
plight she paidvhim a visit and offered to
dress his afflicted foot. It happened that
the cloth used for bandages was all out.
Instead " ending for more, this gay Sa
maritan took a dainty lace handkerchief
from her pocket, and, after dousing it well
with the gout medicine, tenderly bound up
Jim's sore too. It made him "feel pretty
good, I can tell you, and as soon as he was
able to get about he purchased a basket of
roses, tied the handkorchief about the han
dle and sent them over the footlights to his
fair nurse. I believe Mane has that hand
kerchief preserved in her scrap book, along
with a lot of pleasant newspaper notices."
Do Insects Count?
Several instances of apparent counting
are mentioned by Sir John Lubbock in his
"Senses of Animals," as exhibited by in
sects. The several species of eumones, for
instance, supply their young with definite
numbers of victims; and, while the males
are smaller than the females, and require
less food, tho insect seems to know whether
the egg will produce a male or a female
grub, and apportions the quantity of food
accordingly, giving five victims to tho male
and ton to the female. It is suggested by
Mr. G. A Freeman that the matter Is one
of physiological interval. The male eggs
follow one another in less time than tho
female, giving time to store a smaller num
ber of caterpillars before the next egg has
to be provided for.

It is now many years since, and the per
son of whom I am about to speak is a very
prosperous man. But therswas a crisis
once. This Now England manufacturer
was recently narrating to me how near he
came to destruction.
"I was S3 years old. I then had only the
lower mills. After a short interval of
profitable business I suddenly awoke one
morning to confront the loss of half ay
market for the goods. During the next
resl Troth ronstant'wdrrVwllh dnfTfcultles.
One evening as I was returning home,
jaded, almost hating the very office I had
left behind, and-with-no zest for tho dear
home which I was approaching, I felt a
hand on my shoulder. Looking round,
wearily, I saw tho benevolent face of our
village pastor, a venerable man. He im
mediately broke the silence by saying:
'Did you ever solve a rebus or a puzzle?' I
smiled and replied that I had when a boy.
'What waa there interesting in such ef
forts?' "Why, the fun of doing the thing.
There was a queer kind of pleasure in over
coming the puzzle.' 'That's what you
must see in your business,' he gravely re
marked. TTou must learn to enjoy tho ob
stacles and relish the struggle more than
the victory, or you will not live out half
"With that word the reverend man
turned on his heel and left me. That wa3
tho turning point in my career. I saw it
all in a flash of light. I must learn to en
joy the contest with obstacles. I must
find my satisfaction, not in my achieved
success, but in my battle with tho difficul
ties on the way. It was astonishing how
this aspect of my extremely vexatious af
fairs restored me. It has been my constant
thought ever since and enabled me to en
dure. Eighteen months. later I laid the
foundation for tho large mill."
"And got into more diffioalties, if I re
member?" remarked his partner, who was
sitting opposite. "In fact, you have never
been doing anything else except solving
riddles," now turning to me. 'Tf there
ever was a man who was at his best when
in a dangerous place, Fred is the man. In
fact, difficulties are his business. You
would hardly believo it, but tho difficulties
of our affairs are about the only things in
which ho takes any interest nowadays. Ho
draws his dividends with indifference. Ho
hears of any good luebwith scant congrat
ulations. But tell him of a hard nut to
crack and he is all alive from head to foot
and will spend half tho night at it. What
come men find in chess, or breaking in a
refractory blooded colt, tho head of our
house I say it to his face seems to find
in our problems."
There was a general laugh round tho
table for a moment, when tho first speaker
"This is the philosophy of life to teach
boys. It i3 not the end of life, but the liv
ing; not the success, but tho succeeding;
not tho thing done, but the keen relish of
doing a thing, and the conscious strength
of grappling, and not being floored, that
gives a man enduring and fresh aatiafao
tion. Now, if you will pardon me, and do
not uso my name, take that failure up tho
street here that we had last month. And
tho poor boy died as the- result. I know it
would kill him, for about two months be
fore tho crash we were talking together,
and he remarked, T hate a fight.' Instantly
I exhorted him that he must learn to love
a fight if he expected to get on and endure.
He looked up at me, surprised. He was a
member of our church, you know, and fine
as silk. I explained that I did not mean
love of contention with the individuals who
opposed him, but a real enjoyment of tho
struggle to win in an honest way and by
staying longest. Ho turned away sadly
from me, murmuring, 'Life is too hard!'
and I knew ho would go under."
The fact is, young people, life would bo
unendurable to a man of spirit were it not
for the spice of danger, contest and cease
less exertion. No men can afford to be
little his powers by getting into an "easy
place," "a soft snap," or a "feathered nest,"
and for the reason that such a situation in
this world is only temporary at best. But
white it lasts it enervates. A youth forgets
his weapons, his muscles grow flabby.
Then, when the fight comes, as it will, ho
"hates a fight," is easily tempted to com
promise, to the loss of his best interests,
and is permanently disabled in the race.
He will find that the world will accommo
date him; it will lay him on tho shelf and
keep him there. Harkley Harker in New

Dr. O. W. Holmes on Heart Love.
I never saw a garment too fine for a man
or a maid; there never was a chair too good
for a cobbler or a cooper or a king to sit in;
never a house too fine to shelter tho human
head. These elements about us the glori
ous sun, tho imperial moon are not too
good for the human raco. Elegance fits
man; but do wo not value these tools a lit
tle more than thoy are worth, and some
times mortgage a house for tho mahogany
wo bring into it? I would rather eat my
dinner off the head of a barrel, or dress
after the fashion of John the Baptist in tho
wilderness, or sit on a block all my life
than consume all on myself before I got a
homo, and take so much pains with tho
outside when the insido was as hollow as
an empty nut. Beauty is a great thing; but
beauty of garment, house and furniture
are tawdry ornaments compared with do
mestic love. All tho elegance in the world
will not mako a home; and I would give
more for a spoonful of real heart love than
for whole ship loads of furniture and all
the gorgeousness all tho upholsterers in
tho world can gather.

Actln Its Sons.
The white banded mocking bird of south
ern South America the finebt feathered
melodist in the world is one of the species
that accompany music with appropriate
motions. And just as its song is, so to
speak, inspired and an improvisation, un
like any t.ong the bird has ever uttered, so
its motions ail have the same character of
spontaneity and follow no order, and yet
have a grace and passion and a perfect har
mony with the music unparalleled among
birds possessing a similar habit. While
singing he passes from bush to bush, some
times delaying a few moments on and as
others just touching tho sumndts, and at
times sinking out of sight in tho foliage,
then in an excess of rapture soaring verti
cally to a height of a hundred feet, with
measured wing beats like those of a heron,
or mounting soddcnly in a wild, hurried
at last with tail outspread fanwise and vans
glistening white in the sunshine, expanded
and vibrating, or waved languidly up and
down, with a motion like vhat of some
broad winged butterfly at rest on a flower.

years taken his vacation egularly in the
summer by making three round trips in

him a little over six -weeks on tho water

in London and America between the trips
to attend to tho details of his business.
The expense when figured up w renart

railroad costume, diversiflad, apologetic,
haphazard. While it is necessary for
creature comfort that the garments have
the luxury of ease about them, it is neither
essential nor elegant to reduce the outdt to
The main thing is to make a picturesque,
if not a dashing appearance, for a tourist
