Why He Flopped.
Col. W. Y., of the Long Branch sec
tion, was asked a day or two since why
it was thar he had flopped from the
Sheppard crowd to the Ben Tillman
party. "Well," saya the Colonel, "thal
was trier result of a little deliberate re
flection on my part, and it came about
this way : On dast Thursday evening J
was plowing'the switch-tail filly in the
new ground, (you know it was hot at

a-frettin' and the sand flies were thiel
and hungry, and, of course, I wasn't in
no good humor myself. Well. ? got t<

brother farmers and neighbors an?
their best friend honest Ben Tillmai

corporation candidate, and the mer
chants, and the little cigarette cit;
dudes, all of whom are living upon tb
sweat of our brows, and the last one o
whom are this very minute sitting ii
their cool, comfortable offices an

their cigars and cigarettes and ch ucl;

the farmers are,' while here I ai

the following account:
"There were about 800 pei

sooner had the Hon. Mr. Benet s
this than McGowan resented it
striding -Benet in the mouth w

and blood was shed upon his si
bosom. Men of both sides rusl
in and prevented a riot."
Fellow citizens, I ana a true-b
American citizen, and feel prc
of my country. In ancient til
when Rome was. in the height
her glory, her citizens when vii
ing abroad were honored and
spected, because they were c

Rome. We are citizens of a s
greater country than Rome even
her palmiest days, and yet inter
troubles prevail as they did in tl
ancient city, "which sat upon 1
seven hills and from her throne
beauty ruled the world."
The conduct of McGowan
this occasion was reprehensil
indeed almost criminal. But ble
ed be Tillman's party ; I feel prc
that they have taken all false
cusations, and yet preserved
peace to such a dregree that a c
servative man was the first to si

MR. EDITOR: In your issue
last week Mr. Hare, of Caughmi

bring censure upon the conclue
my office by calling attention tc
execution issued against one V
ley Etheredge, a negro, who fa:
to pay taxes on twenty acres
land owned by him.
After having served the pul
so long, I regret being called on
the first time to explain any j
of my official conduct under
imputation of injustice done
anyone, even a negro, While '.
Hare seems to be very an xi om
hunt justice for his friend,
darkey, I believe it is unnecess
for me to say to the people of Ed
field county that it has been
greatest effort to extend leniei
aud justice to every taxpayer.
Here is the whole matter ai
appears on my tax duplicate. W
the preparation and making out
this duplicate, I have nothing
do. So after submitting this I ;
willing to let the people be t
judges. I find Wesley Etherec
charged with personal proper
$20, and a poll. When the gent
man referred to by Mr. Hare call
to pay taxes for Wesley Etherec
I collected taxes on property
ready mentioned as charged agah
Wesley Etheredge. .?
On my duplicate also appei
the name of Wash Ethered]
charged with twenty acres of lai
personal property $30, and a pc
By reference to tax duplicate
1890 I found the same ont
against Waah Etheredge and tas
paid in his name. During the til
for collecting taxes some one frc
Caughmans called roy attention
the entry against \Vash Ethered
and said it should be Wes!
Etheredge. Whereupon I mark?
opposite the entry, Wesley Etht
edge. Before executions we
issued I wrote twice to Wesl?
Etheredge at Caughmans, S. (
that taxes upon property alrea<
mentioned were unpaid.
After expiration of time for pa
ing taxes, as was my duty, I issu?
executions against Weslev Ethe
edge for taxes on twenty acres
land, $30 of personal property, ar
a poll, as I found the entry on rr
tax duplicate. What else could
do after writing twice and taxes b
ing unpaid? But the Sheriff c
presentation of execution, aft
finding out that. Wesley had pai
taxes on personal property ai
a poll, only collected taxes on tl
land. Where is the injustice <
hardship? Wesley Etheredge kn?
? -trhltir he owned the land, and mu
have known that he had not pai
. taxes on it.
i Now, as regards the lette:
i ^written by Wesley to me, one <
< these letters was received at m
office after the execution had bee
: issued and in the hands of tl
I Sheriff, No reply was made to th
} letter because the matter was the
: out of my hands.
Now, I am willing to leave th
matter to the public for just jud]
ment. But, Mr. Hare, is it m
I very evident to everybody that ye
i were moved to write your artic

I much because voa were intereste

? MR. EDITOR : We did not expei

Wild Cats are all the time seekii

think the girls of Troy please

express their feelings. There ai

those ?ind of varmints are ?(

try and bear with them. Now, M

Now, Mr. E?litor, we siucerel
hope the Troyjtes will -not have to
smell the breath of the Wild Cats

it to be the most Offensive of any
varmint, very much like that of a
polecat. It seems that it has taken
them some time to think them
selves.'good looking; certainly
everything to its kind, as the scrip
tures-fl?y. There are many kinds
of animals, also of varmints, there
are co\ys, hogs, goats, horses, and
dogs, and s wild varmints too nu
merous to mention. Think for one
moment how a wildcat could be
good-looking that resembled a
giant, it would be too much of a
raw-boned nature to be good-look
Mr. Editor, we leave the subject
with you by saying, we do sincerely
hope those pests will stay in their
