dAy,and to many who know her
not so well as I. It is of her I am
going to tell-you.
-Twenty-five years ago, when
just as loving, too, a young man
crossed har path. We will call
him Joe Hewberry. He was the
class mate and dearest friend of
Hettie's brother. At a party given
during the Christmas holidays by
Mrs. Le Roy, Joe, to pique one of
the girlsf attached himself for the
evening to little Hettie, dancing
- with her, promenading through
the rooms. with her tiny bandi
* clasped in his, much to the an
noyaoce of many bright-eyed
maidens, who really were envious
of the baby girl.
'Joe was handsome and very
fascinating, a universal favorite
with the ladies, young and old.
Several mamnmas tried to draw'
him away from his 'little love,' as
he called her, and mnaneuvered tc
get her from bim. But all in vain
until wearily the sunny heac
dropped, and with her arm'
around his neck,' her sweet lipe
giving the good night kiss, she
sank to sleep. Gently then he
resigned her to her nurse's care
'Every day from that time he
came to the house. His home wa
quite near. At the sound of hir
voice Hettie sprang forward witi
outstretched arms to meet him

Once, in a moment of con fdence

from the suffering be gave, and
fuel enough to. keep. the love

not, nor promised of his coming.
- Time passed' on; the pretty
child grew to be a beautiful
maiden. Youths -gathered about
,. her, and friends bad ceased to
talk of Joe. Other names were
mentioned as his bad been, yet
none could win an answering
smile or blush. I knew for whom
her love was kept.
'The waiting, yearning look in
her eyes gave way at last, and a
joyous light broke forth. Joe:

Fred brougbt the glad tidings. He
'I've a secret to tell you, dear

'Again, as in her baby days,
Ilettie began her watching. Oh,

joyous .song, though the swe.
lips gave no sound.

The tiller of the soil here is a chem

area of land ; everything but the
water is at hand-the bright sun,
the potash, and other mineral in
gredients, not sashed out of the ar
soil by centuries of rain. The arc
climate secures him always from thi
an excess of moisture, and what Op
nature fails to yield, gre:'ntr or St'

The country about here as well n1
as about Canon City anid Colorado of
Springs,- and further, south in lv
New Mexico, is largely devoted to taa
grazi.ng-both cattle and sheep th.
being -included in the industry. bit
Although in many respects the dol
sheep business is~less attractive $
than cattle raising, it deserves at- no
tention as an important and ho
growing industry, which is doing is
much for the prosperity of this an
region. There is, to be sure, St
something exciting, arnd in a sense lit
romantic, about the steer and his Y0
breeding, while the sheep is a ch
quiet and modest animal. One can pe
fancy the broad-batted 'cow-boy' of
on his fleet horse and throwing in
his lasso at full gallop, ais feeling an
himself a sort of Spanish toreador, th
anid perhaps imparting a spice of it
danger to the chase by flaunting a
red scarf in the eyes of the lordly
bull. But the Mexican sheep her-n
der, on the other hand, plods mo- of
notonously after his flock, and all ne
the chasing is done by his shep
herd dog. Only one man that ~ I
have heard of was ever able to
find any thing alarming int tbe
nature of this simple animal. De'
:siring a supply of mutton for hisI
table, he shot one of his neigh. ca
bor's sheep, and was overtaken by a
the owner while carrying it away
on his shoulder. 'Now I've caught
you, you rascal,' said he ; 'what be
do you mean by shooting my be
jsheep?' Sternly and grimly re
plied the accused :'I'll shoot any
mnan's sheep that tries to bite; m
lowever, it is not for the excite

of herding either sheep or

ecause its use, in consequence of le
s fragility and the danger pf the b
hild swallowing a piece is not to 's

ine in large quantities, and at- W
he same time it would be a good w

were at hand. The medicine is i
omposed in the following man. 0
er: Dissolve sixty grammes.of :!

ud twenty gram mes of hot wa. h
er, and add to this solution ten fc
rammes of kali chloricqu, and b
here is a remedy with which you W
an successfully overcome every b
ase of diphtheritis. The manipu
ation is easy enough. Take some
f the above solution in a little. c
ish, wet it with the brush, and in i
quick .movement,.giiding over a
he tongue, carry tb6 brush into P

A SOUTH CAROL N KI-LED.-.
The Charlotte Obaerver tells of the
deaih" of Albeit Wallace, a South
Carolinian who has long resided is
Mecklenburg where he was known as
'Prince Albert.' He fell- from a
wagon on Friday and broke his neck.
Prior to the war he was a man of
wealth, owning a great 'imber of .
slaves and a large amount of real -
estate. Unfortunately for himself, he
fell into the paths of inteiperance -
and let his fortune sli' from his
hands. When sober, he was a genial, >
kind hearted man, a good citizen, and
a warm friend, but when sduering i
from the bite of the worm that dietlr
not, he was reckless; wild and uncon
trollable. He was married nianp'years
ago to a Mrs. Cross, a dughter of
Col. 8. Bird, of Edgefield, 8. C., and
a relative of Gen. M.-C. Butler. His '
wife, who survivei? him;- ezms from
one -of the most inHussia families of
South Corwlina, and' the tiiedtion of
:hr name'will recall two very-xciting
incidents, that occurred in:the past
history of that 8tate. Thefirst'was a
.dueL between: Tom Bird, -her brother,
and Gen. .Louis T. Wigfafi a suitor.
for her hand, in which Bird vat kill
ed at the -fint fire. This.duelpe
curred in -Edgefield at the court house
door. The. second incident was a
-duel between Preston . 'Broob and
Gen. Wigfall, in which both-principals
were badly wounded. A short time.
after this.second duel;she-was married
to a Mr& Cross, and after hisdeata
she was miarried to Mr..Walkeoe. She
has now in her possession the pair of
duelling pistols used~by Gen. Wigfa
in his .duels. Mrs. Wallace, though'
about 55 years old, still retains much
of her former beauty. Time has.laid
his hand gently upon her and even
now she is a handsome woman.
THE CONET COUGH.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SCUN-SIE
Are you aware that the comet -has a
serious effect on the health of a ma- -
jority of the people who gaze upon it?
It does at my house. They all get
out of bed and stand ' 'we
and thin night dress until, warned by
increased chilliness that they are do
ing an imprudent thing, they skip to
bed- again. Have you the comet
cough ? will be the question for some
time to come. . Vic.
