Ye call me chief, and ye do well
to call him chief who for twelve
long years has met in the arena
every shape of man or'beast that
the broad empire of Rome could
furnish and yet has never lowered
his arm. I do not say this to brag,

And yet I was not always thus, a
hired butcher-the savage chief of
still more savage meu.
My aucestors came from old
Sparta ; the county-seat of Marcus
Aurelius county, and settled among
the vine-clad hills and cotton
groves of Sarsaparilla'. My early
life ran quiet as a clear brook b}
which I sported. My boyhood was
one long happy summer day. We
stole the Roman muskmellou
and put split sticks on the tail of
the Roman dog, and life was one
When at noon I led the sheep
beneath the shade and played
"Sweet Bye and Bye" on my
"""shepherd's flute, their was another
Spartan youth, ihe son of a neigh

led our flocks to the same pasture,

nut* out of our indeptriW'^10- -?
One evening, after the sheep had
been driven into the corral and
we were all seated beneath the
persimmon tree that shaded our
humble cottage, my grandeire, an
old man, was telling of Marathon
and Leuctra and George Frauds
Train and Dr. Mary Walker and
other great men, and how a little
band of Spartaus, under General
Howard, had withstood the regular
army. I did not then know what
war was, but my cheeks burned, I
know not why, and I thought what
a glorious thing it would be to
leave the reservation and go on the
But my mother kissed my throb
bing temples and bade me go soak
my head and think no more of
those old tales and savage wars.
That very night the Romans land

the whole country, burned the
agency buildings, demolished the
ranch, rode off the stock, tore
down the smoke house, and rode
their war horses over our cucum

He knew me, smiled some more,

golden stair. I bagged of the
Protor that I might be allowed to
bear away the body and have it
packed in ice.
Ay, upon my bended knees,
amidst the dust and blood of the
arena, I begged this poor boon, and
the Protor answered "Let the car

but Romans and Ohio men. Let
the show go on. Bring in the bob

the assembled maids and matrons
and the rabble shouted in deri

Abandoned Land Department.
Just about three years ago the
Abandoued Land Department was
created by the Sinking Fund

as the State "abandoned land

He said yesterday that he had
up to date succeeded in placing
about-in round numbers-one
million acres of such lands, here
tofore not known to exist, on the
tax books of the several counties
in the State. He says this ia about
all of such lands m the State and
he is about ready to win up the
affairs of the department. He
says the lands now being found
are so poor and are of sucb low
grade that it ?does not pay him or
auyone else the actual expenses
of pursuing the search further.
He says even as it is, about
half of the lands that have beeu
found and sold are so poor that
they will be gradually dropped
off the tax books, and in the next
five years will have te be placed
He says he will hare a few sales
in Berkeley, Horry and Greenville
counties on April salesday, but
they will be about the last.
Colonel Gibbes says that it has
not been, and is now, only the
abandoned lands which have been
escaping taxation. He say? there
are hundred of owners of tracts of
1,000 acree who return only 700
acres, and pay on that much. The
State has no township maps giving

number of acres in a township,

Crows Rescue a Chicken from ?

The big, hungry hawk suddenlj

the chick could run or cluck, 01

The farmer was cutting cornstocke
in a wagon near the barn, and did
not see the hawk with flapping
wings rise into the air, clutching
tight the little white chick, fright

some trees the other side of the
swamp were eight black crows.
They had seen itali. Putting their
heads together these crows con

loud, defiant chorus of "caw, caw,
caw," they took wing.
The bird of prey bad not risen
fifty feet into the air before the
crows had completely surrounded
him. They pecked at him above,
below in front and behind. They
would rise many feet above and
shoot downward one after the other

celerity of swallows. The hawk,
burdened with the breathless chick,
could not endure the savage onset,,
and soon sank among the trees.
But the crows, crying "caw, caw,"
more defiantly than before, beat
upon him still, and at last the
hawk dropped the chick and an
grily dashed upward again. For

An Independent Miller.
When Frederick built his fa
mous palace of Sans Souci, there
happened to be a mill that greatly
hampered him in the execution of
his plans, and he asked the miller
for how much he would sell it.
The miller replied that for a long
series of years his family had
owned the mill, which had passed
from father to son, and he would
not sell it any price. The king
used every solicitation, offered to
build a mill in a better place and
pay him besides any sum he might
demand, but the obstinate miller
persisted in his determination to
preserve the inheritance of his
Irritated at last by his conduct,
the king sent for him and said in
an angry tone :
"Why do you refuse to sell your
mill, notwitnstanding all the ad
vantages I have offered you?"
The miller repeated his reasons.
"Do you know," continued the
king, "that I co ld take it without
giving you a penny?"
"Yes" rejoined the miller,
calmly, "if it were not for the
chamber of justice at Berlin."
The king was so flattered by this
answer, which showed that he was
incapable of an act of injustice,
that he dismissed the miller with
out further entreaty and changed
the plan of his garden.
Liquor Commissioner Appointed.
New? and Courier.
COLUMBIA, S. C., March 21.-Mr.
D. H. Traxler, of Timmousville,
was to-day appointed Commis
sioner of the State Dispensary.
The appointment is to go into im
mediate effect. Mr. Traxler will
be here until to-morrow, and will
then go to his home and return
next week to take charge of the
preliminary arrangemonts for the
opening of the State Dispensary.
Mr. Traxler appears to be a good
man for the place and he has very
good recommendations. He was.
born in Charleston forty-three
years ago and in 1869 went from
Charleston to Timmonsville, where
he has since resided. For about
eighteen years he was the railroad
agent of the Atlantic Coast line at
Timmonsville. From 1883 to 1889
?fee served as'Treasurer for Darling
ton county, filling the office to the
entire satisfaction of all parties.
At the same time ie was interested
in a mercantile business at Tim
monsville, which was getting so
large that.he found it to his ad
vantage to retire from office and
devote himself to his business.
As to his politics he said that he
was fully identified with the Re
formers, although he has never
taken an active part in the politi
calrcontests. He said that he has
always been partial to the ideas of
JAIM Traxler in his talk gives
every indication of being a pretty
clear-headed man, and he expects
to~iun the Dispensary on strictly .
business principles. The Dispen
sary headquarters, he said, would
be in the Agricultural Hall.
How ?To Keep Irish Potatoes. <
Tfie Yorkville Enquirer gives the
plan pursued by Dr. John G.
Black, a successful. farmer at
Blacksburg, in keeping . Lush 1
potatoes through the winter, which
is as follows :
"As a rule, the Irish potatoes
preserved in this country are
vatery and not as good for - table
ise aa those which come from the
North. This is not on account of
;he difference in climate, or anv
iling of that kind; but the fault is I
with the.common method of pre- 1
lerving. The idea is to prevent
inch chemical changes as will
lestroy the starch. This can best ?

ventilation. To get more room, it 1
s a good idea to have tiers of
ihelving on the inside, one tier ?
;welve or fifteen inches above the 1
:.ther. On digging the potatoes, i
Dut them on these shelves to a
lepth of about four inches. Then
seep the door closed tight during .
;he day, and open at night until l
ibout the first of December, when 1
;he potatoes may be put in barrels
md headed up. After that, of '
course the door should remain
jlosed. Every week or two it is <
accessary to go over the potatoes ?
m the shelves and throw out all <
that are faulty. If treated in this
way, the potatoes are bound to be
as mealy as could be desired and
the flavor will bo delightful. I 1
have sold about eighty bushels of i
potatoes this winter at a dollar a
bushel, and the purchasers con
sider them in every respect equal
to the Northern potatoes."
A Reminiscence of Gen. Beau
Gen. Rosser is my authority in
the narration of au incident at
the first battle of Manassas, in
which he played a somewhat ridi
culous part. Af ter. the rout com
mended, Rosser, who was comman
ding artillery that day, was so
fortunate as to cut off and capture
about 1200 Yankees. Not knowing
what disposition to make of them,
he despatched one of his aidep, to
inform the cammanding general
(Beauregard) of the capture, and
to receive his commands in the
premises. Beauregard saw the
messenger advancing, with a small
guard and the prisoners a little in
the roar, and as the blue very de
cidedly outshone the gray, the
General, surrounded by a small
coterie of officers only, thought
that the Yankees must be after
him. As he quickened his pace
in another direction the couriers
(with their prisoners) quickened
theirs, and the race was a two
mile one before Beauregard ascer
tained the fact that he was ruuning
from his own men and "captured
enemies." He was very angry, and
it was with difficulty that they
could cool him down enough to
take a reasonable view of the mat
ter and to recognize the fact that
the mistake was his own.

Dick's After Thougt. ]
A certain celebrated Southern 1
judge, who was not a believer ic. re
vealed truth, was in the habit of
twitting his body servant on re
ligious matters. "Dick, he said
one day, you say the devil besets ;
you ; now I want to know why he
lets a sinner like me off free?"
Dick could not tell why, but the
next day he went duck shooting
with his master. The first time the
judge fired into the flock he killed
two or three and wounded as
many more. At once the hunter
threw down his gun and with
sticks and stones tried to make
sure of his wounded game but paid
no attention to the dead ones
floating down stream.
"Massa," called Dick," it jist
