Mr. L. M. Werts, of Clouds

came to pay his taxes. Mr. Werts

there shouldnrt be any tax exten

"Poor people pay their taxes eariy ;
rich people wait until the very,
last minute. I am here to-day to
pay taxes for myself and fourteen
of my neighbors, all poor men.
Gov. Tillman is right. The time
within which taxes may be paid
should be fixed by law and not

DEAR ADVERTISER: The mar
riage of Mr. John James Bell to
Miss Mattie Sue, the youngest
daughter of our friends Mr. and
Mrs. L. ,P. Covar, on Thursday
evening, the 15th inst., was an oc
casion of much interest and pleas
ure to the friends of the manly
groom.and his fair bride. Mr. Bell
is a young mechanic of unusual
skill-his work on our new Meth
odist Church attesting his superior
qualifications as an artisan-dili
gent in business, of fine moral and
Christian character, he is one of
our worthiest citizens. The gentle
bride is just "sweet sixteen," but
possesses many womanly graces.
For some time she has been a most
efficient typo in the offioe of the
ADVERTISE;?, as you know. Doubt,
less she will prove a "helpmeet,"
indeed, to the worthy young man,
whom she delights to call "lord,"

beautiful odalisques, or female
slaves, were- recently . presented
by the Khedive to the Sultan of
Turkey and placed in the imperial
harem. The odalisques appear to
have had a captivating influence
on the Sultan who paid so much
attention as to excite the jealousy
of the others. The beatiful slaves
were found murdered in their beds
a few days ago, having fallen
victims to poison. The Sultan was
deeply enraged and ordered a rigid
investigation and severe punish
ment of the guilty. Three Eunchs
who had access to the appartments
of the victims have been arrested
on suspicion of having been the
persons who actually administered
the poison and at the latest ac
counts were subjected \to torture
in order to compel them to make
full confession. The suspicion of
having instigated the crime rests
Chiefly on one of the concubines,
who, until the- odalisques arrived,
almost monopolized the Sultan's
affections. In the present temper
of His Majesty it is doubtful
whether even she would escape
the bow-string or the . Bosphorus
should sufficient proof of her guilt
No More Politics.
WASHINGTON, Dec-George C.
Tanner, a confederate soldier and
political follower of General Wade
Hampton, wrote him and urged
him to reconsider his resolution
refusing to again enter South
Carolina politics. Ho has also
outlined certain "plans by which
he believed the General could
triumph over his enemies. To this
letter Mr.' Tanner has received
the following reply :
Columbia, S. C. Dec. 13th.
Dear Tanner:-lam obliged to
you for your kind letter which
reached me a few days ago. Under
no possible circumstances or
persuasion would I take any place
offered me by South Carolina. I
was urged to become a candidate
for Gc vernor at the l&st election,
but I refused, nor would I accept
the position if every man in the
state desired me todo so. I have
settled my accouts between the
state and myself and I am perfectly
satisfied with the result. I am
rejoiced only to know that the
affection of my old soldiers for me
remains unshaken in storm as
weli as in ' calm. Thanking you
for your kind interest. Yours truly

Dawn was about to break, cold
A belated pedestrian was the first
in all probability to hear the
sound of sickening blows emanat
ing from the rear of the brown
stone mansion on the corner.
He paused and listened.
Presently there mingled with
the horrifying noise oaths of a
high degree of blasphemousness
and seething with passion.
The oaths and the blows, it was
apparent, had one and the same

Several belated pedestrians had
now assembled. They looked at
each other with blanched faces. *
"MurderI" they gasped.
The blows fell like rain. The
oaths flowed no less oopiously.
They could remain transfixed
with horror no longer. They burst

The woman who turned Upon
them like a wild beast held a jag
ged club in her hand, and her eyes
had a baleful glare in them.
Presently they overpowered and

Her discourse was distinguished
by a singular ferocity.
Several belaled pedestrians held
her while others searched the
After a time the latter returned.
Softly they whispered in the ears
of thu former. Then they gently
released the woman,* who after
they were gone, again fell to

Recent curious observations
indicate that.our appreciation of
food depends largely-if not
chiefly-upon the sense of smell.
A student 21 years of age had
inherited from his mother the
defect acquired by her in child
hood, of complete absenoeof smell,
taste and other sensations being
unaffected He could taste no
difference between tea, coffee and
water, In three trials out of five
he confused bitter almond water,
but distinguished between either
and either and amonia Fruit
syrups were simply sweet, with no
difference of flavor. Cloves and
oiunamon were recognized but
mustard and pepper gave only a
sharp sensation on the tongue.

much that way, a great many, of

PARIS. Dec- Eugene Cramtpon
the murderer of two men, waB
guillotined this morning, and the
canaille that gathered^ Bee the
execution greatly mjoyed, the
spectacle afforded b/the miserable
cowardly wretch as he was liter
ally carried to the guillotine.
At exactly 7 o'clock the prison
doors swung inward and the pro
cession could be seen approaching.
Crampton, who was in an agony
of fear, was supported by the
wardens and accompanied by a
priest, who, as he walked, read the
services for the dying. The grim
and awful red guillotine loomed
up directly ahead of the^little
party. It was only a few steps
from the prison. After walking a
few feet Crampton raised his eyes
and saw it. With a terrible shriek
he threw himself backwards and
feel to the ground All efforts to
induce him to. rise was fruitless
and he grovelled on the flagstones,
begging most piteously for life.
To a person of any sensibility, the
scene was one of deepest horror,
but a crowd of roughs and aban
doned women took the keenest
delight in witnessing the abject
fear and listening to the frantic
appeals of the murderer.
It became necessary for the
executioners assistant to lift
Crampton to his feet, but even
then he hung.limp in their arms
and they were compelled to carry
him to the guillotine. While some
of the assiattants supported him,
others qiuckly bound him and
threw him against the bascule.
Even then he did not cease his
struggles. His contortions were
terrible, but they did not last long.
The bascule was dropped into
place and the assistants shoved it
forward until Crampton's neck
rested in the lunette. Then
"Monsieur Paris" attired, as
usual, in the conventional frock
coat and silk hat, touched ' the
spring holding the knife. Silently
and like a streak of light the
right blade fell, and Crampton's
head dropped in the open basket
The execution was the most
horrible one that has been witnes
sed in Paris in many years.- The
crowd, highly pleased with the
entertainment the state had
afforded them, dispersed, laughing
and joking with each other. .
Crampton was an old offender
against the law. On the night
of March 3, last, he, in company
with two accomplices, went to the
billiard room of a wine shop in
the Rue St. Dennis. They broke
into an adjoining room and were
plundering it whjn the landlady
of the place entered and surprised
them. The woman gave the alarm
and the thieves fled. A number of
men followed them and were gain
ing upon Crampton when he turn
ed and shot two of them dead
and wounded a Ihid. His

AN ANCIENT BALLAD.
AS SUNG BY ED. PAUL.
In Scarlet-town where I was born,
Therq was a fair maid d we Hi D',
Made every lad cry "Well a day,"
Her name was Barbara Allen.
'Twas in the.merry month of May,
Wuen the flowers were a bloomin'.
A young man on his death bed lay?
For the love of Barbara Allen.
He sent a servant unto her,
Away unto her dwellin',
"My master's sick and very sick,
For the love of Barbara Allen."
"If your master's sick and very sick,
And death is on'bim dwelim',
None the better will ever he be,
For the love of Barbara Allen."
So slow she got up from ber work,
So slow she went unto bim,
That when she drew the curtain by,
"Young man I think you're dying." j
"Yes, I am sick and very sick,
And death is e'er me stealin',
And none the better will ever I be
Without the love of Barbara Allen."
"You ng man remember the other day.
When ocr town was drinking,
You drank the health of the ladis? all
But slighted Barbara Allen.**
He turned his pale face to the wal),
He turnedjbis back unto her,
"Adieu to one, adieu to all,
But woe to Barbara Allen."
She scarce had got one mile from town,
When a death bell struck her,
And as it ringed it seemed to sing,
"Hard-hearted Barbara Allen."
"0 ! mother make my death bed now,
0 ! make it soft and narrow.
Sweet William died for me to-day,
I'll die for him to-morrow.
They buried sweet William in one deep
And Barbara in another,
Out of her grave a red rose sprung,
And out of his a briar.
They grew and they grew to the top
of the church,
And they could not grow any higher,
And there they met in a true love knot
The rose ?round the briar,

"Seeing Is Believing."
And a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
i not good. Simple, Beautiful, these
[words mean much, but to see "The Rochester"
will impress the truth more forcibly. All metal,
tough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,
it is absolutely safe and unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
cf old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light,
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
Look for this stamp-TEE ROCHESTER. If the lamp dealer has n't the conn I no
Rochesur, and the style you want, send to us for our new illustrated catalogue,
and we will send you a lamp safely by express-your choice of over 2,000
varieties from the Largest Lamp Store in the World.
