Still Young to Thee?
BT ?RMSTE AD O. GRUBB.
Yo who, at morn, with playful hands,
Hastening the while to work again,
Throw kisses to the wife who stands
With face against the window pane.
Yv*ho, lookingo'er the lawn, where flowers
Bloom ronnd thcchildren at their play,
Sondsher "goodbye," to make tho hour.?.
Bloom as tho flowers through all the
At evo, whoso footsteps in the hall
And welcome home in tender words,
Bright as tho sunshine on you fall, - ?
Are sweeter far than songs of birds.
Prize her, above the wealth of lands,
Or treasures of the hidden mine;
Lighten the labors of her hands
And hold them tenderly in thine.
And if, at length, upon her face
The marks of care or age you see,
Let watchful love each line eras?
And let her still be young to thee.

A CONGRESSMAN IN TROUBLE.-Con
gressman R. H. Cain (colored)was arrested
yesterday on a bench warrant issued from
the Inferior Court, to compel him to an
swer to an indictment for obtaining money
under false pretences. This is the same
case which was reported in TUE NEWS
during the last iS'ovember term of the
Inferior Court. The substance of tbe
charge is that Cain sold a tract of land
to a colored man several years ago, for
which he* received the stipulated pric?.
Since then the buyer has not been able
to get possession of either land or money.
The ca30 was nol. prossed by SoUcitor
Butiz in November last upon the pledge
that Cain would return the purchase
money. This pledge, it seems, has not
been kept, and the case has since been
reinstated. Cain was about to be sent to
jail, but on the intercession of Judges
Cooke and Carpenter, Judge Allen finally
consented to discbarge him on $300 bail.

" So?pweed" is the name, of an
agreeable vegetable growing in Color
ado Territory. How it works may
be inferred from what.happened to a
newly arrived young lady who took a
stroll out of Denver recently. '"After
walking two or three miles, she felt
weary and looked around her for
something to sit down oii Spying a
large bunch of t japweed, she went to
it and sat herself down, not gently,
but with considerable suddenness.
As she rose a distance of about fifteen'
feet in the air, immediately thereaf
ter, she evolved a scream that is de
scribed by those who heard it as a
regular blood curdl?r. Hereafter
she will carry a cushioned camp-chair
with her when she makes excursions
in the suburbs." An obese German
gentleman sat down on the wead with
some precipitation, and the crowd,
attracted by his roars, explained :
" I shoost comes out mit mine cane
for a lee-le valk, 'unt I gits pooty
dam tired, tint I shoost sits down on

how I gits bit more ash a dozen

beautiful and penetrating.
JUST SUITS ME.-There is a stern
and sober citizen in our town who
has a lovely daughter. A young gent
who also lives here, and who is quite
bashful and modest, succeeded in
winning her affections, and the con

all that was necessary to complete

attached to his daughter, and though
he desired her to be joined with .?onie

Putting a hoop on the family flour
barrel is an operation that will hard
ly bear an encore. The woman gen
erally attempts rt before the man
comes home to dinner. She sets the
hoop up on the end of the staves,
takes a deliberate aim with the roll
ing-pin, and then shutting both eyes
brings the pin down with all the
force of one arm, while the other, in
stinctively shields her face. Then
she makes a dive for the camphor
and unbleached muslin, and when,
the man comes home she is sitting
back of the stove, thinking of St.
Stephen and the other martyrs, while
a burnt dinner and the camphor are
struggling heroically for the mastery.
He says if she had kept her temper
she wouldn't have got hurt. And he
visits the barrel himself and put the
hoop on carefully, and adjusts it so
nicely to the top on every stave that
only a few smart knocks apparently
are needed to bring it down all right,
then he laughs to himself to think
what a fuss his wife kicked up over
a simple matter that only needed a
little patience to adjust itself, and
then he gets a hammer, and fetches
the hoop a sharp rap on one side, and
the other aide files up and catches
him on the bridge of tne nose, filling
his eyes with tears, and the next in
stant that barrel is flying across the
roomj accompanied by the hammer,
and another candidate for camphor

THE Undersigned having established his office at Edgefield, as General
Agent. for the Cotton States Life Insurance Company,
invites attention to one or two of the advantages offered those who may
iesire to effect insurance on their lives in a safe Home Company : <
The Board of Managers at a recent meeting passed unanimously the fol
lowirg Resolution : .
" Resolved, That in view of the fact that there are unusually large sums
paid for Life Insurance, to the Companies of the North and. East, which
sums, being there invested, contribute to the enrichment of those sections,
whilst our own South is greatly in need of cash capital to pronecute success
fully our Agricultural and Mechanical enterprises ; it is ordered, that for
:hc purpose of retaining these sums in our midst, hereafter a certain pro
portion of the net cash receipts from premiums, amounting to not more than
10 ].er cent, of the same be invested in such manner as may be in accord
ance with the regulations of the Company, in those sections from which the
;aid premiums are attained."
* (Signed) ' WM. B. JOHNSON, Pres't.
GEORGE S. O'BEAR, Sec'ry.
In accordance wi th the above Resolution a Board of
las been regularly organized at Edgefield C. H., S. C.,
