LI SES OA' A SKELETON.
Sixty years'ago tho .London Morning
Chronicle; published a poeui entitled
"Linc-s ou a Skeleton," which exciter
much attention. Every effort,-oren U
the offering a reward of fifty guineas, wa;
vainly made to discover the author. Al
tb it ever transpired . that tho*poem
in a fair, clerkly baud", was found near :
skeleton of remarkable beauty of lorn
and color, in the mus?um o?* the Roya
College of Surgeons, Lincoln's Inn, Lon

What beauteous visions fdled this spot
What dreams of pleasure, long forgot !
Nor hope, nor love, nor joy, nor fear,
Has left one trace of record hero.
Beneath this mouldering canopy
Once shone the bright and busy eye ;
Rut start not at the dismal void
If social lov? that eye employed,
If with no lawless fire it gleamed,
But through the dews of. kindnes
That eye shall be forever bright
When stars and suns are sunk lc night
Within this hollow.cavern hung
The ready, &wiR t.nd tuueful tougue :
I.' falsehood's honey it disdained,
And where itcon'd not praise was cha?ner
If bold in virtue's cause? if spoke,
Yet gentle concord never broke, :
Tais silent tongue shall plead for thee
When time unveils eternity.
Say, did thoao lingers delve the mine?
Or with its envied rubies shiuo?
To hew tho rock, or wear the gem,
Can little now avail to thenr;
Rut if the page of truth they sought,
Or comfort to t?o mourner brought,
Taese bands archer meed shall claim
Than ail that wait n Wcn!th or Fame.
Avails it, whether bare or shod
These feet the path of duty trod,
If from the bower < cf Easo they lied,
To seek Affliction's humble shed ;
If Grandeur's guilty bribe they spurner'
And homo to Virtue's cot returned,
These feet with angel's wings shall vie
And tread the palace of the sky.

COKESBURY; Apr. 10, ISSI.-Th?
remains of Gen. Martin Witherspooi
Gary arrived in Cokesbury this (Sun<
--_Jay) morning from Edgefield. accom.
par??du by several friends and reta
tives. It was escorted to the residence
of hi3 brother, Dr. F. F. Gary.
His face bore the natural command
ing lock that characterized him ic
life. On the 'coffin was engraved iu
silver. M. W. Gary, Died April 9
1881. It will be remembeied that
Gen. Gary died on the sixteenth an
niversary of the surrender of Gen.
Lee at Appomattox Court-House.
The funeral procession moved from
Dr. Gary's residence at half-pest 2
o'clock P. M The pali-bearers from
Abbei^'jpcmatv were C>1. E. Z.
Hem don? '^r.vGf*L. Connor,~Mesns.
G. \y.Connon and F. D., Gwnxor.
Those from Edgefield County were,
Hon. John C. Sheppard^Messrs. J. L
Add-on, B. W. Bettie, Jr.; and Ben
jamin Abney. The remains were
carried to Tabernacle Graveyard, two
miles Southeast of Cokesbury. .
Rev. William Thomas, the pastor
of the Methodist Church here, con
ducted the ceremonies. He made a
few very appropriate remarks, some
of which I take the liberty of copy
ing from hi3 notes :
"The cause of our gathering on
this sacred spot (the repository of the
honored de^d) is not only solemn,
but to many of ns extremely painful.
-A fellowman has passed away from
earthly scenes. A companion ha?
been taken frpnvpur midst. A friend
hae been snatched suddenly from a
large circle of otherfriends. A broth
er is. missed-frotn the hearthstone,
where sit in mourning' loved sisters
and other brothers, whose tears be
speak the loss they have met. A son
has been torn from the embrace of a
rioting mother, who still lingers (Mrs.
Gary was still alive at this time) at
the family home, under the pressing
weight of more than three score and
ten year.?. These things deeply af
fect us while we stand at the tomb ol
the departed. We would fain min
gle our tears with the bereaved, and
if possible mitigate their cup of sor
row. We sometimes assemble at thc
graveyard to place.in the tomb a
sweet little halie, a simple bud of
promise, that has not yet thrown its
tendrils around the heartstrings of
society. We drop ? tear over the in
nocent form, kiss its lily forehead
and lay it away to rest, soon forget
ting that it ever lived. Then an ag
r-- e-.l form, beading oeder th? burden
of long life and accumulated infirmi
ties, falls by" the ruthless hands of
death, and as we see that life wa?
spared till all that makes it lovely
was gone, we are content to say,
li 'As fall tho autumn leaves whon fully
So fallest thou.'
"?But this is a call of a very differ
ent nature. Vigorous manhood lies
prostrate iii death. Cutr off in the
midst of hU days, just as the manly
L pnweri were beginning to group them
selves to grapple with the great prob
Jems of life, and to assert their full
e3t strength. At the very moment
when he was girding on the habili
ments of intellectual power and raov
w- ing upward to.the zenith.of^-his ca
pacity, the message comes, the sum
- mons must be obeyed. 'Marvelous
are thy^ works, O Lord ! Thy path is
not known in the d.-.rk, andr thy ways
I are past finding ont.' We bow in
obedience to thy behest.
"As a patriot, he had no superior
When his State" called he promptly
SL responded, leaving home and i h its
comfovts to meet, and repel --the inva
ding foe. ?His love of country was of
a character that' exhibited the deep
est sincerity. The prosperity of South
Carolina,carried to his'heart bright-1
ness and joy that could not be re? j
"pressed ; while Ser-.reverses were
mourned over as personal calamities
and afflictions^ yet in all her misfor
tunes, he retained to the last the prin
ciples for which the founders "had
valiantly contended without stint or
. "As a soldier, he stood shoulder-to
?snoulder with his' companions -in
ar^ms. No^cbjity was shunned by him?
?'isfo milita^;-, order disobeyed: Ai
rways in plac?, in time of need. The
heavy march, the empty haver
sack and the cold ground for^a rest

to him, as he shared in them with
the rank and file of the army in the
"Of his courage we scarcely need
to speak; forgone were ever found, to
doubt it. No thought of j self preser
vation caused him; to hesitate, sven
while the most imminent danger at
tsnded his steps, and though he mar
velously escaped injury during the
whole Confederate struggle, yet few
were more exposed to the missiles of
death than our departed friend.
.'As an officer he was kind and
lenient to his men, almost to a fault,
indulging them as far as possible,
consistently with good order and dis
cipline ; still exacting obedience from
all in his command, while he cheer
fully rendered the same to those in
"His religious opinions were held
firmly and with much greater rever
ence than some were willing to allow.
We take the liberty of saying that
he was no skeptic. It was my pri v
-leg? and pleasure to k9 an intimate
friend of the departed, in the army
and in private life since the war.
Upon inquiring why he did not ex
plain the charge brought against his
religious belief, he replied : 'That
while I was a student in the South
Carolina College I was very ill with
fever and became delirious. While
delirious a minister called upon me
to speak to me upon the subject of re
ligion. In my delirium I repelled
the minister. ? report was circula
ted that I did not care for or believe
the truth. My pride would not al
lyw me to seek to correct such a re
port, for every one that had heard it
knew that it wa? while I was deliri
ous that I repelled the minister,
and, therefore, did not know what I
was doing.' ?
"He asked me once if I could pro
cure him a small copy of the Pro
verbs: one that he could carry in his
vest pocket. I procured an English
edition and presented it to him, and
to my personal knowledge it was
his daily companion for a long time.
He said that the Proverbs contained
many comforting thoughts for him.
"Great injustice was done to our
departed frieud by his enemies, when
he made a public speech in Columbia(
S. C., on the moral powers of Europe
being arrayed against the Confedera
cy. General Gary said : 'moral pow
ers or no moral powers, the Confed
eracy must win.' HiVenemies chang
el his words to: 'God or no God, the
Confederacy must win.' He'did not
say "God or no God,' for I remem
ber hearing his speech distinctly."
After Rev. Mr. Thomas concluded
his remarks the body wa3 lowered
into the grave, when he read the usu
al burial service.
General Gary was born in Cokes
bury, Abbeville County,[S. C., March,
The "Only" Lung Pad Co. Thank
'. heaven it ia the only one-of that
kind. The company is a fraud and
their pad is unquestionably the big
gest humbug going. Wa would pro
claim this though we had "only" one
?ung left to do it ?itb. They have
-cheated more newspapers than any
other fraud since Helmbold tried to
resurrect himself from the lunatic
asylum. They effected this by get
ting a Detroit paper to endorse them.
There is "cussing" going, on in news
paper offices all over the country,
though few of them dare to tell how
they have been taken in. We have
no such delicacy. They got three
months advertising out of us and we
haven't so much as a pad to show for
it. We have nothing but the stereo
'Only this and nothing more.' "
We are gazing sadly upon it as we
write. It is the head and naked bust
of a man (tie "only" inventor and
proprietor, we suppose), with a pair
of p?ds^su.^pended over his lungs by
a ribbon around his neck. "The
OJIV' Lung Pad" is inscribed upon
them. Below "Trade Mark" appears(
>-nd we hope?the* trade will mark what
we say. Now that we look at the
pic:ure more closely we can see that
fraud is stamped upoi^ every linea
ment of that face. It is a trade
mark, in fact, t?at";n? .'?n?-?could mis
take. Singular that we didn't ob
serve it in the first place, but some
how we never scrutinize a patent med
icine picture very closely until they
fail to pay their bills. Then their
guilty faces stand right out, so that
he who runs-their advertisement
without getting anything for it-may
read. Surrounding the picture is
the legend: "Try it. It has cured
many." We triea it. Tried it three
months-their advertising, we mean
-and it cured us, of\ a desire to have
any more of it. "Inures byT^jsorp
tiou." says the advertisement. It does.
It absorbed our space and returned
nothing for it. Hence ??r eure.
"It cures all lung diseases, all
throat diseases, all breathing troubles.'"
It would take considerable money to
cure all newspapers who a e "breath
ing troubles" about getting their pay.
"Yon can be relieved and cured.'
We will vouch for you beiug,relieved
-of any money-you invest in them

A Story About Mauone.
Virginia's new Senator elect is
physically a man in miniature. Men
tally, if his opponents are fit judges,
he weighs something like a ton ;
but on the scale he tips the beam at
less than a hundred pounds. In ap
pearance he is as leah and thin as a
greyhound; and it is doubtful if his
avoirdupois in gross could bc made
to yield adipose sufneieut to lubricate
the wing .of a humming bird. The
following pretty good story illustra
tive of his exceeding leanness ?3 told
of him : During the late war, "/hile
in command of a division of Confed
erates, be, like many others, Ind tue
misfortune to be wounded : but, as it
happened on that occasion, not seri
ously. An acquaintance, about to
visit Richmond, was requested to
call upon the General's wile for the
purpose of relieving any anxiety she
might feel on account of h=r absent
lord, by explaining the nature and
extent of his injury. Col.-called
at the lady's residence, and, as report
goe3, found her in tears, she having
already received the news ol' her
husband's wounding by telegraph.
The officer attempted to r?assure her
by the statement that the Genera]
would be on duty again in a few
days, but without avail.

?liACH year the question of the cheapest, and at the same Lime the most.?
lur.ble and effective fence becomes more prominent,1 and it has remained
br the firm of SEDGWICK BROS. to solve the problem. This they have .
lon? by the invention, of machinery by .which wire can be rapidly made
uto a double-Unst-net work of diamond sb.aped mesh.- ?hla ia conceded
jy all who have seen if, to be the most scientific and economical manner in
which steel osron canJae used to insure the greatest strength and durability #
riie. SEDGWICK STE?L WIRE FENCE is the only-general purpose wire
fence in use. . Being a net-work without barbs, it will keep out small pigs~
LS well as the most vicious stock with no possibility of injury. It. shelters .
ao enemies to crops or poultry, and makes no shade. It is just T?Et FENCE
for Gardners, Fermer?, Stock Raisers and Railroads, and is very. desirable '
for Lawns, Parks, Cemeteries and Front Yards.
For nearly a SS Enclosures and ibr a Better Fence
Eco320L2jy, ism .Sedgwick Fence has no equal.
Being dipped in rust-proof paint it will last a lifetime, and ' is -betteK t
than board fence in every respect. It is of much greater strength and du*
rability than barbed fence. It is not affected by heat and cold owing to
its peculiar .construction, allowing contraction and taking up all-expansion.
Stock may run against it without injury to either stock.or fence.?Pigs^\'jw$li'J.
Poultry are restrained better than by any other fence. We ask for it a fair '
trial, full) believing that all our customers wilLbe satisfied/ Wire net-work :\,
is no new thing, but we have reduced" the COSt Until it is within the
reach of farmers. . v
We specially recommend our fence,for.bottom lands, asitwiUa??owfree
passage of water and can be arranged ao;a?tonung faatin placesreven'when
the flood will tear out the posts in more exposed places. None of ?tfwiJLbe
washed away. . .... ' '
. Thi3 fencing, as its name implies, is made of the best annealed alee" "/
wire. The margin wire, i. e. top and bottom wires, run nearly 8traight?and<'':
are No. 9, which is common size telegraph wire. The body wires are ; No.
13. The breaking strain of No. 9 .is about"'2,500 pounds, and pf No. 13
about 800 pounds. The measure of the mesh is the extreme length and .
breadth of the opening, and a postal card will not go through a five ihct?0T
mewn without touching at-the four corners. >..:;"
No single wire is expected to break with leas- than 800 pounds Strain,
and the wire will break before the twist wijl'slip.
f>2 inch fence, five1 inch mesh, is"a very good farm fence; -47 inch, 5
inch mo*?, is a fair J'enc-p, but not high enough to restrain very breacby stock.
Our four inch mesh contains one-fourth more wire for the same height*^
and is correspondingly better ; .46 inches or higher will be found reliable io
stock, but we think 50 and 54 inch is preferable. We make 66 and 70 inch
fence specially for barn lots, or wherever high fences are needed, and no
cheaper fence can be used for that purpose.
In using this netting for front yard fence, a railing and base board^takes'
the place of braces at the emU cf the fence and makes it more ornamental.

The SEDGWICK GATES ?re made of wrought iron pipe and steel wire, and
defy all competition iu neatness, lightness, strength and durability. ' Thes?
are splendid gutes for Yards, Lawns, Parks and Cemeteries, and everywhere?
where a good gate is wanted. These gates.are all fitted with our adjustable
hinge tLaf'.'dlows of the cate being set high or low, and to open either way
or both way.?, with spring latch and either double or reversible catch as per
order. All our gates are specially suited to self-opening attachments.
We are often asked : How long will it last? From alhthat is known of
wire and the kind of paint wa put on, we think it safe to say from 25 tff-35;
years, and we feel confident that it will bear the renewal of the posts sev
eral times. Any kind of \ osts may be used and are usually set ?0 to 16*
ieet apart? but may be ??t any distance not exceeding-20 ft. It is fastened
to wood posts with staples.
We sell a complete outfit for stretching, (consisting of stretching-tackle*
and cutting pliers) for $-.50. Complete instructions to set. up fence sent
