Cheap Excursion Rates. .
Mr. D. C. Allen the Gen. Pass. and
Ticket Agent of the South Carolina
Railway has issued his rates for ex
eurting to Charleston to the Industrial
Exhibition, which is now open,~ and
which will continue until Feb. 23d
prox. These tickets are sold at the
rate of three cents per mile for the
round trip, and will be sold three days
of each week, Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, until its closing day. As
it is expected that the Exhibition this
season will exceed in interest and at
traction any of past times, there can
be uo doubt that the crowd of visitors
will be very large, and advise our
friends in these rural parts to indulge
in the pleasure of the occasion which
Mr. Allen has by his low rates of fare
placed in their reach. The tickets will
be good for six days.

We have been presented by Mr.Wm.
S. Morrison, the travelin aent of
the publishers, Messrs. D. App eton &
Co., with one of their Standard High

This Geography is exceedingly attrac

maps are numerous, beautifully color
ed and full, the railroads are accurate
ly and fully given, and show even
those built in Asia and Africa. The
series comprises two books, the Ele
mantery and the Higher (the one be
fore us), and we see no reason why
the Appleton Geography will not soon
fill an important place in the schools.
The Engravings too are numerous and
elegant. The fact, too, that the South
Carolina supplement has been prepar

State, Dr. Jas. H. Carlisle, adds much
to its merit. Among the important

Two blooming nymphs after a visit
to a sick friend, on their return met
with a disaster, at least one of them did.
The girth of the disastered fair one,
was loose, or rather the girth of the
saddle on the horse which she rode
was loose. and the animal was given
to jwnp over mud holes or rivulets.
One of these had to be crossed. The
isastered ones thoughts were not on
the horse, although her precious body
was. Nearing the rivulet, the horse
paused. The other, her sister, had her
thoughts about her, and said "Sister,
look out, he is going to jump." The
sister thinking the jump was to be
made by some agile youth wlio was in
her imagiaation, looked around, far
and near ; she did not see the youth.
In the meanwhile the horse. jumped,
and so well, that girth, sle and

FOR THE HERALD.
THE GOLDEN RULE.
"Do unto others, as you would have
them to do unto you." To tell a lie is
wicked. To swear to one, is to sap
the foundation of good government
Corrupt the witness stand, and protec.
tection to property and life are gone,
that could be lorne but worse follows,
to wit no protection for character:
hence the' mal (Cormorant) who is
ever seeking for a sensational story re
gardless of truth, or whose charactei
they attack is the worse man known
to the reading public. Thus mueh
has flowed spontaneously as I proceed
to put down the facts of Trial Justict
Henry H. Blease in the matter with
Hart Caldwell, and his wife, Winnie
Caldwell, near night, Saturday the
17th of Nov. 1883, as the Trial Justie<
was wending his way home, after a
laborious days work, with a sick head
ache which few men could have borne,
hoing that a cup of cof'ee and little
sleep, nature's recuperator would give
that relief which suffering humanity
stood so much in need of: he was
accosted by one of our very best citi
zens, a gentleman of about 40 years,
and great - amiability of character.
He said my wife (Mrs. Dora Cadwell)
was at the wood pile picking up chips.
Winnie Caldwell a negro woman in
the yard abused her, using very ugly
language and said that our little boy
had killed one of her chickens, and
that she, Winnie Caldwell, would kill
the boy on sight. Mr. Caldwell was
very much excited, and said that Mrs.
Cafdwell was in great distress about
her child; he is a delicate little fellow
about 9 years old, and looks more like
a girl than a boy. le discovered a
chicken in father's oats, and without
meaning harm set his dog after it; 1
Mr. Caldwell's attention lad been call
ed to it, he would have cheerfully paid
for the chicken, and have chastised his
little son if he had deserved it. Blease
said apply to the Mayor for protec
tion. I have to the Marshal, but he
savs he cannot. she is on her pri
vate lot. Blease said see the Mayor
himself, or one of the warden:s. While
Blease was taking his coffee, about
dark, Mr. Caldwell came to his house.
and said I have been sent to you. I
want a warrant for Winnie Caildwell,
he made an affidavit for using abusive
language disturbing the peace and
threatening to kill his son. It was in
the night some time, Blease had no con
stable present so he deputized his son
a lad to execute the warrant, and sent
a colored man with him for protection.
He found Winnie on the street, called
Aunt Winnie, I have a warrant for
you; ho met her husband, who walk
ed with her to Blease's home, known
as Blease's Hotel. Blease was lean
ing on his desk as though he was
quite sick. He said to Hart Cald
well and his wife Winnie. walk into
my wife's room, I have asked for per
mission, and she has had a good fire
made for you. The lad, constable. the
colored man who went with him, Cald
well and his wife, and a friend of theirs
all entered the room, and were asked
by Mrs. Blease who was in the room
with her small children to have seats,
none of them accepted the invitation.
Blease's son said Aunt Winnie I
will read the warrant for you, she
said I won't hear it nor nothing
old Dora Caldwell says. Some-per
son outside called Blease's atten
tion, and he entered the room a lit
tle after the others, what a scene, (to
his great surprise), he met ; a large
wood fire was burning with some doz
en chairs around it, but none occupied.
Mrs. Blease had fled to the bed corner
of her room with the lit.tle children
huddled on the bed. Hart Caldwell
was in thme position of a pugilist, both
fists clenched, a friend of theirs a col
ored woman crying, making a terrible
to do, the boy had the warrant in his
hand, and wa standing back against
the wall in amazement; the col'd man
who had gone with Blease's son look
ed dazed, and appeared to say I don't
know what to do, run or stand. Win
nie Caldwell with up-lifted hands had
taken the room, she was as the boys
say, "on a high horse," she was charg
ing every thing in the room regardless
of tables, chir or anything else us
ing terrible language. Blease walked
directly across the roonm to a position
between his wife and children, and
the enraged Winnie. He spoke loud
ly, but calmly, Winnie and Hart it is
so cold I will hold court here instead
of my office, take your seats. At this
the Court took a seat in a rocking
chair, by a wash stand, upon which he
rapped. and said conme to order. Hart
Caldwell said I wvill not sit down, and
sidled towards the trial Justice, keep
ing his left side toward him with both
fists clenched, his whole person being
in a position to commence a fight,
about four paces from the person of
the Court. Blease said again in a loud
tone take seats, if you will, I will treat
you as kindly as I would Dr. Mayer,Sr,
and his wife if they had calledLover to
spend the evening with me. Winnie
commenced then upon the court with
a storm of abuse saying that colored
people had no chance here among
these white folks, said what he had
said was not so, she gave it the. most
insulting contradiction repeatedly.
Said she was sent for only to be put in
jail, but Blease could not do it, she
dared him to attempt it. With this
she attempted to escape by leaving the
room, she was stopped by the timely
assistance of those present. ]p1ease
said ini his office I know no color I
treat all alike. In this time Blease
had sent for assistance, the white dep
uty Sheriff', and a colored man. As
soonas Winnie's noise subsided enough
for any one else to be heard, Blease
said, no I have not sent for you to put
you in jail. Hart, you and Winnie,
now, both of you take your seats, I
want to talk to you, so that you wil]
not disturb the peace until Monday
morning, then I will hear this matter
fully. Winnie sat down but Hart re
fused posltively.to do so, Hart's refusal
seemed to give Winnie license to comn
menee again. ,JVhat ensued then beg
gar's description." Blease looked on as
though he thought it an urncontrollable
case, When W Innie paused to catch
breath, Blease said you are the most
provoking bitch that ever I saw. At
that Hart Caldwell attempted to ex
ecute what he hadl been planning to do
all the time, he advanced with his fist
drawn within reach of Blease. but
when the firm, stop sir; reached his
ear, and the gaze of Blease's eye met
his, he did stop. Blease sat still jn his
chair, but said, Cmaldwell don't ap
proach me, if I am a Trial Justice I
have the right to defend myself. If I
were not one I would take you into the
street and whip you out of your coat.
I will now be compelled to commit
you both to jail, and sufficient persons
were deputized to escort them with
out any injury to their persons. It
was now about 9 o'clock at night.
Blease had witnessed the greatest de
monstrationof passion andU bitterness,
especially to Mrs. Dora Caldwell and
her little son, and becoming alarmied foi
their safety, sent for Mr. Robt. T. Cald,
wvell and pnt him in possession of the
facts, whereupon an affidavit was
made upon information that Hart Cald
well had espoused the cause of his
wife, Winnie, forming a conspiracy
that put the child of Mr. and Mrs
Caldwell in great danger of bod3I
harm. This warrant wa delivered tc
the ihn4f wh.rennn Mart Qaldw4
was arrested about ten o'clock Satur
day night; directly M. A. Carlisle,
Att'y. for Hart and Winnie called at
Blease's home. They discussed the
the matter freely, and concluded that
the best that could be done was to let
them remain in jail until Monday
Blease believed conscientiously that
if they were turned out before they
had time to reflect, that something of a
very serious nature would occur.
Monday morning they were brought
before the Trial Justice in his office.
Mr. Carlisle appeared for them in his
most earnest manner, and pledged for
their better behavior as they were ten
ants of his per agency. Both Winnie
and Hart plead guilty to all the charges
against them begged pardon of Blease,
especially so as he had been so kind
to them as a private citizen, and as an
officer of the law, calling to his remem
brance acts of personal kindness to
wards them. Whereupon the court,
who had no malice, freely . forgave
them and maintained the dignity of
the law by a mere nominal fine, as to
Hart Caldwell, for contempt of couit,
one dollar; as to Winnie for the same
offence, two dollars, and for disturbing
the peace, and using abusive language
to Mrs. Dora Caldwell, and putting fa
ther and mother in such terrible dis
tress about the child, four dollars and
cos's; making the costs as light as pos
sible-only five dollars and twenty cents
including sheriff and constable, in all
$12.20, and took a bond as suggested
by their own counsel for $200, that
they keep the peace. They complied
without protest or appeal. If the
Trial Justice erred at all it was on the
side of mercy.
