preacher, an editor, a merchant, a tan

butcher. The merchant constituted

He came in by the back gate, preferring
that way to coming through the house

the first thing he stumbled over was the

nearly cost him the loss of a leg, or per

said he, recoiling in alarm. "A live
alligator," was the reply, "well known
for its love of niger babies, or white
ones when it can't do better." "Wbere
did you get it, and what are you going
to do with it?" "In Jacksonville, Flori
da," in answer to the first, and to the
second, that "it was the intention of
that boy of ours to work him in double
b arness with the goat previously men
tioned." "Well," said Sniffles, "that
beats all, you newspaper men are al
ways up to something. Whoever heard
of an alligator and a goat working in
arness; some of the readers of the

From B. F. Moore. A.M., President
President A. G. Maybin, of the "Mav
ton Short Line", Interviewed.
A report having been circulated tl:
Mr. Maybin contemplated selling c
to the Clyde Combination, a report
was sent to interview the Colonel, th
the truth might be laid before the pu
Rep.-Mr. Maybin, having heard ce
tain rumors in connection with yo
road, I would ask if you intend leasit
it to the Clyde Combination?
Mr. M.-No, sir! I have nothing
that kind in view. I disapprove
combinations; besides the Legislatu
would oppose it.
Rep.-It has been asserted that yoL
line was built by the Laurens RailwG
Company, and that during the temp
rary suspension of that road its rollin
stock was transferred to you by its of]
cers. If this be true the Clyde Comb
natio-n must own a controlling iritere
in your road.
Mr. M.-For a long time my "Sho:
Line" was in debt, and under control <
the L. R. R.; but the splendid busine:
that it has done in the last five yeai
has enabled me to remove all indebtet
ness, and it is now a separate and di:
tinct corporation-and in fact my ow
property. (Rep.-Whew!) Besidf
this, the business is increasing so rapii
ly that I shall be compelled to mak
great additions to meet the increase
demands. What I propose is, to plac
sleeping c'ars on all through trains, t
uniform conductors, lay the entire lin
with new steel rails, and extend tb
road to Scott's Creek, in order to cox
nect with the Steamers now plying o
that stream, and to make a throug
route to the seaboard by the way
Rep.-I suppose you will not be cor
tent until your line shall reach acroa
the broad Atlantic?
Mr. M.-Well, sir, to be candid,
must acknowledge that a line of stean
ers from my terminus to Archangel, o
the Northern coast of Russia, is a plan
in my platform-so to speak-and i
the course of time I propose to establis
a line to the North Pole in order to gE
ice cheap during the Summer.
Rep.-Well, I suppose the lease que:
tion is settled?
Mr. M.-Yes, sir. The only comb
nation that would suit me, would be t
lease the Clyde myself, run it in cor
nection with my road, and have tb
controlling power in my own hands.
About this time Mr. R. S. Maybir
