A Wrong Qasis. I
The S.:ho.1 Commissioner in order
,r to make an apportionment of the school C
fund atmong different townships, ap- A
plied to the Auditor for a statement of th
taxes for each township. The st:tte- er
ment was furnished, but the Conmis
sioner not feeling sati=fied with the re
sult looked into the matter and found
that the number of horses in each of
I township had been furnished, instead fo
of the number of polls-by mistake.
j By Consent
In the Court of Common Pleas, the
i Judge adopted the plan of taking up
eases by consent. When either party
will not consent, there is no trial. se
r The result has been constant, nervous T
endgavor to And something for the r
jury to'do; and very few cases of real re
importance have been tried. We be- th
lieve that the cases should be called al
peremptorily, and forced to trial, or pr
continued. This would save the time m
of the jury, and would teach-parties fo
tLe importance of being ready.
On the Rampage.
%a Monday morning a horse that
had been hitched to the wheel of a
bu -became frightened, and tore the
wvhe from the buggy. He dashed up .
main street dragging the wheel aft.-r
him, and scattering persons right and
left. Like a :"ensible horse, he avoided
the mud by keeping o:i the side walk,
where he had the satisfaction ofsee- sh
ing some lively dodging and scamper- cr
a ing. We suggest that the proper
place at whie to hitch the average
horSe in order to prevent a runaway,
is between the shafts.

Small Pox Scare.
Moniday morning a flutter of excite- ps
, eut was caused in town by the re- A
1Ort that a man at Mr, henry Blease's th
Hotel had small pox. Ther'e was a
good deal of tremulous tall oin the u
sabject. Some persons began to spea!g Ti
of vaccination, and others about fleeino ci'
to part.s unknown. Theo town Conce th
did .'s. lose its presence of mind for b
ad instant. It m -t in extr:a session,
adauthorized the Board ofHa th

h's lifetime passed through a towni In
svhich a man had prev>.us]y died of
smll -pox. The Board announced its ~
inbity to find any tr~c'es of the vile nc
diea-e, and the Faters accordingly Ci
didl proclaima the rumor, snou.nded Wa
and fal-e. Through all the trying cir-,
enstances the HBALD reporter boreb
himself with becoming composure, h

The Qusail-Eater WVins.
NEw YORK, February 5.-Mr.]
Walcott, the quail-eater, sat down
to finish the thirtieth brace of birds. ~
He bad wagered that he could eat a
brace of quails every afternoon for *
thirty consecutive days. Two ~
hundred and fifty dollars was the 11
original stake, but from time to time 2
it has been increased until some 1b
four or five thousand dollars de- ,i
pended upon the result. Not all of
them were bet by the original par
ties to the wager, however. Wal
cott said as he sat down that he
felt quite as well, if not better; than
when he began the quail diet.
Among the spectators to-day were
several physicians. Walcott took -
seven minutes to clean the bones
of to-day's brace. The number of
visitors to the place where the con
test has been going on has been not
far from ten thousand, and the
match has excited much interest
The Abbeville Press and Ban ner
says Abbeville levies no extra
tax for the scho'6ls, and we know of
no sentiment here which favors any
such movement. Abbeville has
always had a school and her people
have always been willing to pay.the
teachers. We have in Abbeville a
school association, each member I
being plediged to contribute a sun.
not exceeding twenty dollars an
nually to make good any deficiency
of money with which to pay the
teachers. The board of trustees.
which is elected by the school as
sociation, is composed of gentlemen -
chosen from the different religious
denominations. The - board, with
the association pledged to give any
needed aid, have had no trouble in
securing the services of good
teachers, who have conducted thea
school in a manner so satisfactoryc
that no deficiency has yet occurr.ed.I
The school is kept open as a free
school as long as the public money
will pay the teachers, and after that
time tuition fees are collected-the
rule being, we b&eve, to dismiss
the children of tiuie who are un
willing to pay, while, so far as we
are informed, no child of any citiz- -
en who is unable to pay has been
denied its benefit. The graded
system which was adopted several
years ago has been discontinued
and the school is now known as the 1
Abbeville High School. While the
colored people of the town have no
such organization as the Abbeville
School Association, yet theyt
manage to keep their school open
during the whole of the scholastic
ear. As a rule, the better class of -
colored people in Abbeville are
noted for their liberality in matters
pertaining to either the schools or
the church. They send their child
ren to school and pay their preacher.
