THURSDAY, DEC. 22,1892
Tho 'Colombia Register, in
speaking of Representative Ashley
says: "JoBh is a clever country
man, and of course is not versed
in the wiles, of our city ways, al
though he has a head full of
sound horse sense. It is told on
tho gentleman from Anderson
that the other day, when our
nickel-plated steam engine
was passing up the street, that
Josh looked upon it with open
mouth amazement, and as it
turned around the cornor he
exclaimed: 'Boys, that's the
dad-blastingist biggest coffee pot
L I ever saw, aud they's got it on
wheels, tool' On another occasion
Josh was showing a country
friend through the Capitol, when
he was asked about the mace.
'That ar' thing,' explained, . the
colonel, 'is for Governor Tillman
to keep his mace and spices and
fi other seasonings in."
A VILE SLANDEK.
The Augusta Chronicle a few
days ago published the following:
A mother murders her babe.
Roasts the little creature in a
stove, then offers up the steaming
and crisp brown child to her friends
Such is the horrible story that
comes from the Red Hill section of
Edgefield county, South Carolina.
f.. The negro mother has been ar
rested, and in all probability is
now reflecting over her unpardon
able sin behind the cold and som
bre walls of the Edgefield jail.
The granite floors of that old
brick structure have many times
echoed the foot tread of blood
stained criminals-of men charged
with almost, if not every, crime
known to the decalogue, but this
horrible infanticide with its revolt
ing details surpasses even Edge
field's hitherto unsurpassable re
And so on cul nauseam. OLcourse
it's all a lie from beginning to end,
and we can't conceive how the
Chronicle could have been induced
to perpetrate such a vile slander
upon our county.

prove it as being better than the

IA REMARKABLE NEWSPA- |
Combination is the characteristic
of this age, and when capitalists
combining in trusts, working men
in labor unions, and farmers in
alliances, newspapers can hardly
be blamed for joining the proces
sion. Indeed it is remarkable
that the press has not lead the way
in taking advantage of the power
of association, instead of lagging
The Press Claims Company,
whoRe advertisement appears in
I another column and will become
familiar to our readers during the
I coming year, illustrates the ad-j
vantages of co-operation on an
extensive scale. It is a combination
of hundreds of the leading news
papers of the United States for the
purpose of protecting their patrons
against unscrupulous Washington
claim agents, and securing prompt,
efficient, and economical service
to all persons having dealings with
the Government. Incidentally the
company expects to make a profit
for itself. It will secure patents
and pensions, perfect land titles,
and attend to all other legitimate
business of the kind on terms that |
will make its employment a neces
sity to claimants having a proper j
regard for their own interests.
Membership in this company is
a guaranty of the high standing of
any newspaper, all applications for
stock having been carefully con
sidered and passed upon by th s
Board of Directors before allot
ment. The company comes before
the public backed by the collective
indorsement of over fir* hundred
of the leading journals of the
United States. That the ADVER
TISED has been admitted to such an
association is a compliment which
our readers will appreciate as high
ly as ourselves. We take pleasure
in recommending the Press Claims
Company to all who may desire
the satisfactory transaction ef
business in its line.
The Oconee County Alliance has
organized an Alliance Co-opera

Eats Nothing And Gets Fat.
NEW BBUNSWICK, * December
12-James Still, the colored
boy who is mystifying the at
tendants of the New Jersey State
Reform School at Jamesburg by
his refusal to take food of any
kind, has now reached the sixty
fifth day of his fast, and still
continues hale and hearty under
these Remarkable conditions.
The strangest feature of Still's
fast is that he is gaining steadily
in weight, and grows more muscu- j
lar with each succeeding day.
For several days paBt he has been
at work in the brush factory, and
one day recently he made fifteen
brushes. Twice every day a spoon
ful of sweet oil is given to him,
and with this he rubs his body
from head to :.foot. The lad is]
unable to retain food of any kind
on his stomach, although the j
doctors have tried every known
preparation of nutriment since
his admission to the insitution.
Then he was a mere skeleton,
now he weighs 130 pounds. Dr. Van
Zandt, the school physician WJIB
interviewed regarding the case. He
"The case is the most remarkable
that, has ever come under my
notice. I have studibd it for over
a month, and with other physicians
have endeavored to discover the
cause of Still's remarkable vitality
That the boy is keeping up
genuine fast I have no doubt. He
has been watched carefully by
Keeper Condon, and he is willing
to swear that Still has eaten noth
ing in sixty-four days. It cannot
be that the sweet oil which he
rubs into his body sustains him,
although it does much to sustain
vitality. Mentally the boy is'in
excellent condition. He is bright
at all times, and is lively as a
cricket. He shows no disposition
whatever to eat anything, and is
perfectly content to be let alone
and not worried abont food."
Keeper Condon, who has had
Still under constant supervision
since he began his fast, said : "The
boy is certainly ? wonder. He is
under my eyes fourteen out of the
twenty four, and the other ten
hours he sleeps. That he does not
eat anything then I am positive,
because ht has'no way of getting
it, and if he did I would notice
the effects afterward. Since I saw
that he could not eat anything I
have been very lenient with him
and have not pul him to work with
the other boys.
"Lately, however, 1 became tired
of seeing him sit around doing
nothing, and I ordered him to re
port, with, other members of the
family, for work in th* factory.
His long idleness badi spoiled the
lad, apparently, and he rebelled.
H?-showed a veiy violent temper,
and was io abusive that I was
forced to administer bodily punish
ment. To my great surprise he
gave me all that I could do to
handle him. Now he is doing as
good work as any of the beys in
the brush factory "
Oue dey in my missionary work

Th? Sandringham Fanerai Sermon. S
The wide interest taken in the ques
tion of recognition in eternity was illus
trated, by the extraordinary sale of the
sermon preached at Sandringham on the
decease of the Duke of Clarence and
Avondale, the eldest son of the Prince
and Princess of Wales.
The profits during the short period of
six months amounted to no less than
?1.800, of which the sum of ?650 was
giren by the Princess of "Wales to the
Gordon Boys' home and ?650 to the
British Home for Incurables. .Over 50,
000 copies were sold in that time-a sale
certainly unprecedented in the annals
of profit from a single sermon of a few
The preacher has been heard to say
that this sale was not due to his slender
sermon, but to the touching anecdote
told by the princess, forming the prefa
tory note, and which Bhe gave permis
sion to be printed. The substance of
the story is that in 1888 all the five chil
dren of the princess were with her ?t
Sandringham, and they all partook of
holy communion together. "I gave
Eddy a little book," said the bereaved
mother, "and wrote in it:
"Nothing In my hand I bring,
Simply to thy cross I cling,
"Just as I am, without one plea,
But that thy blood was shed for me,
O Lamb of God, I come.
"When he was gone, and lay like one
sleeping," continued the princess, "we
laid a cross of flowers on his breast, and
after we had done so I turned to the ta
ble at his bedside and saw the little book
in which were written these words, and
1 could not help feeling that he did cling
to the cross, and that it had all come
Tennyson's Interview with the Qneen,
It was in the latter part of 1862, the
year after the death offthe prince consort,
that I was conversing with Mrs. Tenny-^
son on the sudden death of a much val
ued common friend and the loneliness pf
his widow, when Tennyson, who hair
been stalking np and down the end of
the bow windowed drawing room with
his usual long strides, suddenly broke in
with, "I saw another widow three days
ago." "Indeed," 1 replied, "and who
was that?" "The queen," he replied* in
his deepest tones. "She sent forme to
Osborne." I said that. I supposed hei.
majesty wished to thank him for hhf
noble tribute to the memory of the
prince consort, and "with perhaps par
donable curiosity went on to ask what
the queen had Baid to him. "I can't re
member," he answered; "I lost my head.
I only remember what I said to the
qneen-big fool that 1 was!"
"What was that?" "Why, what an.
excellent king Prince Albert would have"
made. As soon us it was out of my
mouth I felt what a blunder 1 had made.
But happily it prov ' to bo the very
right thing to have The queen re
plied that that bau m tho constant -
sorrow of her life-thai she was called
to govern, while ho who was so worthy
of the first place was obliged to take a
secondary position." Tennyson had lit
tle more to say of his reception except
that, notwithstanding tho perfect calm-_
ness and self restraint of the queen, and
the sweet consideration she manifested
for him, the interview was a peculiarly
trying one, and he was glad when it
was over.-Canon Venables in London
Gratitude Toward Great Men.
We are told regularly-periodically
told-that the eminent politician earns
his country's gratitude. We have much
to be thankful for, we little ones, but
we have indeed cause to be truly thank
ful that we are not destined to earn such
gratitude as that. How many politi
cians, say, during the past century may.
be said to have 'earned their country's'
gratitude? How many out of the great
multitude of politicians? Is there one?
Is there one man of whom his country
men are willing to say, with an even
nearly unanimous voice, "We owe that
man our heartfelt gratitude; it is his;
we give it him." As they sometimes
cry in the arena of his former struggles:
Doubtless every man Jack of those ex
tinct eminent politicians-for extinct
they are as the dodo, to all practical in
tents and purposes-has his followers as
he had them then. And equally true it
is that he has his opponents, quite in the
good old way. What sort of gratitude
is it which consists in being set up by
one set of men for another set of men to
knock you down? Those eminent poli
ticians have handed on their wrangles
to our eminent politicians. We are
wrangling joit on tho same old lines.
If we look deeply into the matter' we
shall begin to doubt if we have advanced
much farther than they did. We are
making the same old plunges in the
same old luoky bag.-All the Year

The Encroaching Toolee.
One of the humorously attractive
characteristics of a child ls his large
Bense of personal importance. A little
girl was walking with her father on the
shore of Lake Michigan, where the
waves were gently lapping up on the
beach. Suddenly one came up higher
than the others and swept over her foot,
when she exclaimed, "Oh, papa, the
lake stepped on my toe."-New York
In the Czar's Country.
On the way back from Izora the czar
wanted a cup of tea, but owing to a snd
'den jerk of tho railway carriage the tea
was upset The next morning (as goes
the story) the whole line between St.
Petersburg and Izora was carefully
searched by numbers of men ordered to
find out what had jerked the czar's tea
cup! Every time the czar goes up and
down to Peterhof the steamers have to
be decorated, traffic is suspended on the
river, and occasionally even the loading
of steamers is stopped.-London News.
English Yonth and the Army.
Walter Besant, in his very entertain

notes an important change in the early
part of this century in the feelings of
the English gentry about trade. Mer
cantile life ceased to attract the younger
sons of the gentry, who found employ
ment in the army or navy, and the city
was thus severed from the counties.
