There are or were several cases of
smallpox in Newberry, whereupon
the town council passed an ordinance
compelling every citizen to be vacci
nated. The fine for refusing to be
vaccinated is $ 100 or 30 days in jail,
and if, after payiug the line or being
in jail the 30 days, the party is not
vaccinated within five days, they slap
it to him again.
At a club meeting of married wo
men in Atchison recently the subject
of first quarrels after marriage came
up. There were 19 women present,
and 18 laid the blame of the first q *ar

woman admitted that it was her fault.
The nineteenth woman was a widow.
Well, Hollingsworth's, and Broad

passed through our town last week and
threshed the wheat and oats. We do
not know the net results, but one man
got 45 bushelsjof wheat, another 17, an
other i0, another 7. and so on. W??
suppose 200 or 300 busbels of wheat
were grown in our town and suburbs
thia season, last year, perhaps not a
dozen bushels all told. Of course there
was a great deal more oats.
It is reported that Major-Gen. M. C.

under him in the Confederacy, and is
a trille superstitious in consequence.
It might bt well, as a matter of fact, to
prohibit white horses throughout the
service, since they must make an ex

Sam Taylor's Mule.
Sam Taylor had four ilea-bitten gray
horses killed under him during the
war."butoneof 'em was a mule." The
mule was killed by a bomb shell which
entered the body just behind the
ninth rib, and ' busted riffht in thc
middle of his stummick," so Sam says.
He further says that he "saw the bomb
coming towards him and the mule and
would have lit but the homb beat him.
? went up and up, said he, clear out
of sight. As I went up I noticed the
mule took an easterly direction, andi
soon saw that he would be out of the
settlement before dark and turned my
attention to other matters. While go
ing up I did a good deal of thinking,
I thought among other things that I
might be going to heaven, but as I was
going head foremost it occurred to me
that was not the proper way. Well,
aftera while I felt as if I was coming
down instead of going up. I knew
that I was coming down by feeling
the wind blowing up my breeches legs.
When I was going up the wind blew
down my collar. I state this fact for
the benefit of those who may be blown
up in the present war, so that they
may know when they are coining
down, a very important thing to know.
When I had gotten in about 150 feet of
the ground I saw my saddle and pistols
(they were in their holsters) coming
up. How I ever got so far ahead of
'em I don't know unless it was that I
started first and was worse skeered.
Well, as soon as I got to the saddle I
jerked out both the pistols and docked
'em, for I didn't know whether I would
light among the enemy or with friends,
and sure enough, as my ill luck would
have it, I heard right tinder me a band
playing Yankee doodle. No sooner
said than done; I commenced tiring
I right down on the durned Yankee's
heads, aud of all the running and
sk?edadling they did it-they must
have thought I was a visitation from
on high a regular Sodom and Gomorrah
down-poup. I fell ina mud hole, which
with the recoil or kicking of the pis
tols (I fired all twelve barrels at one
shoot) saved my life."
These things happened at the battle
of Franklin, Tenn., and to any who
douot the truth of this story, Sam
can show to this day a buckle from the
the saddle that was on the mule the
very day the \,omb burst in his "stum
mick." Sam fuither says that this was
as near as ever he came to seeing" a
dead gray mule.
1 am glad to inform my friends and
the .public that I am at my gallery
again, and will be glad to serve them.

Kev. Lymau A bbott, the great
Brooklyn preacher, discussee this
sound, live topic of a new Ameri
can policy in the May North
American Review, thus :
"We are identified with the civ
ilized world, interested in its prob
lems, concerned in its progress, in
jured in its disasters, helped by its
prosperities. The time has there
fore passed when the United States
can say, "We are sufficient uuto
ourselves, we will go our way ; the
rest of the world may go its way."
The questen is not, "Shall we avoid
entangling alliances?" We are en
tangled with all the nations of the
globe; by commerce, by manufac
tures, by race and religious affilia
tions, by popular and political sym
pathies. The question for us to
decide is not whether.we shall live
and work in .fellowship with
European nations, but whether we
shall chose our fellowship with
wise judgment and defiuite purpose
or whether we shall allow ourselves
to drift into such fellowships as
political accident or the changing
incidents of human history may
direct. I believe that the time
has come when we ought as a
nation, to recognize the fact that
we are not merely an American
nation, but a world nation ; when
we ought to take our place with a
clear and definite understanding
that we are doing so amDng the na
tions of the world ; when we ought
to form clearly to ourselves our na
tonal purpose, and seek such af
filiations as will promote that pur
pose. It is for this reason I urge
the establishment of a good under
standing between the United States
and England, in the hope that in
time it will grow to a more formal
alliance-civic, commeroial, and in
dustrial, rather than naval or mili
tary-and yet an alliance that will
make us, for the purpose of our in
ternational life, one people, thougb
not politically one nation,"

Well, ADVERTISER, it has been

But I will uot delay longer. The

going on to the front. We have
been put into a brigade with Penn
sylvanians and Minnesotans. The
latter came over last night and
wanted our boys to give them the
old r?bel yell. In order to get
themselves in tune they gathered
together and marched to Col. Till

Dixie, took him upon their shoul

certainly gave the rebel yell right.

At a regular communication of Con
cordia Lodge, No. 50, A. F. M., held on
the 3rd inst., a committee consisting
of Brothers Geo. B. Lake, P. B. May
son and D. R. Durisoe, appointed at a
previous eall meeting of the Lodge to
draft resolutions on the death of Bro.
W. H. Folk, reported as follows, the
same meeting with the hearty endorse
ment of the Lodge, viz :
WHEREAS, Our beloved Bro. William
H. Folk, in the very mid-way of life,
full of manly vigor and in the midst of
wide usefulness, with many worldly
honors already won, and enjoying the
love and esteem of all who knew him,
has been removed from us forever,
and with sorrowing hearts we miss
his kindly greeting at our fraternal
gatherings, and sigh for "the touch of
a vanished hand-the sound of a voice
that is still." Realizing, however, that
it is now well with our departed
brother; that our loss is his happy and
lasting gai , that he has been called
by the Grand Master on High "from
labor to refreshment,"-to "rest, sweet
rest," in that "temple not made with
hands eternal in the heavens." And
murmuring not, nor complaining at
the sore bereave'ment that has befallen
us; but remembering the promises of
Him whose love and mercy "endureth
forever," we humbly and trustfully
bow to the Divine will, and with un
"Leave it, Father, all with thee
I>o Thy way-that is hest.:'
AND, WHEREAS, In the seemingly
untimely death of Bro. Folk our town,
and county as well, has lost a highly
esteemed and valued citizen-a gen
tleman endowed with a bright and
vigorous mind, and possessed of high
legal and literary attn: :inents-a man
warm-hearted and true, finn in his
friendship, and ever upright and just
with all; a husband, father, son, broth
er, the remembrance of whose tender
love and warm affection for his home
and his loved ones there, will be to the
hearts bereft a sweet consolation as
the years go by; and we a worthy
brother Master Mason, who loved the
sacred tenets of the order, and was
ever zealous in the work of the Lodge;
therefore be it
Resolved, That, forgetting his frail
ties, we will ever cherish his many
virtues, and long keep his memory
Reeolved, That a page in the Record
Book of the Lodge be dedicated to bis
memory, and that the Lodge room be
put in the usual habiliments of mourn
ing for the next thirty days.
Resolved, That the Secretary for

family of our deceased brother, and
that they be published in the Edgefield
