An American Boy's Feat
HOW JOE BENTLEY WON A BOUQUET PROM
THE QUKKN OP 1'OIUUOAL.
?Toe Bentley wos au American boy who
hud been brought up on o ontllo fenn in
tho interior of ono of thc New England
Stulos; but who had loft home fur the moro
congenial life on board u man of-wur. ilia
hist voyage took him to Lisbon, where to
bis great delight he learned that there was
to bc, during tho following Easter week, a
great bull light. Tho wildest bulls had
tcon brought from Andalusia, a largo nutn
I Of of horses from the royal stables were to
bo in tho ring, tho queen herself would
presido and distribute the favors, ond, in
short, it was to bo tho grandest bull-fight
seen in Portugal for many years.
All this had a peculiar fascination for
Joe. In all his allusions to Portugal and
Spain he had declared to tho boys that tho
only thing he cared to sec in those countries
was a bull (iuht.
Tho bull/dightn of Portugal aro different
from (bose of Spain in several important
particulars. At every such fight in Spain,
where this cruel sport is oonductcd in thc
most barbarous manuel, many horses ?re
killed and sometimes men, too, fall victims
and nt the close of tho fight tho bull is
dispatched by tho matador, or bull-killer.
The law of Portugal does not allow tho bull
to be killed, aud his horus aro always
padded or tipped with brass, po that ho
cannot gore the horses. Onco in a while,
however, u man is killed in spito of this
precaution. Tho excitement is intense, us
the object i? to drive or drag tho bull from
tho ioulosuro.
Accordingly, having obtained permission
to go ashore on thc day of tho fight, he
modo his way at an carly hour to thu bull
ring, and obtained one of thc best scats.
Ile thought that ult Lisbon must bo there.
All waited in suspense for tho queen to
enter the royal box. Prcscutly she np
I pcarcd ond was greeted with repeated cries
of applause. Then tho sport began and
Joe watched with interest and enthusiasm
tho mad rush of tho bull into tho ring, und
admired tho agility of Iiis tormentors in
evadiug his onslaughts. Finally, however,
the superb animal has driven all his oppo
nents from the enclosure.
Foran instant tho bull was master of tho
riug. The most perilous feat of tho bull
ring was now attempted. A young man,
covered with silver luco hung till over with
littlo bells, undertook to throw himself be
tween tho bull's borun and ding to them till
tho bull should bo sufficiently exhausted to
bc overpowered ned taken from tho ring.
Ho courageously made tho attempt, but
unhappily missed his aim and fell dircotly
io front of tho enraged animal.
At this moment of terriblo suspense,
moreover, Joe suddenly saw what had'not
yet been discovered by ?ny ono else--thot
tho bull had lost thu pudding from ono of
his horns. Ile stood over the young man,
his eyes glaring and his whole attitude ono
of furious anger. Ho rcfusod to be di
verted by tho colors glancing all around
him, and ho scorned to bo considering
wliother ho should trample on his victim
or picroo him with tho naked horn. The
young man did not doro to move, for ho was
aware that tho bull possessed ovcry advan
togo. Tho excitement of tho audience was
at its highest point, and tho overwrought
feeling's of our hero would allow him to
retain his seat no longer.
With tho sprightliness of a soilor?boy ho
leaped tho puling. Everybody was as
tounded at his temerity. An Englishman
present fearing for thc lifo of tho unprao
Hood lad, ai'ied out, "Como back!" Sovcml
AutcriooDS shouted for him to lcavo tho
ring; but Joo bad ruado tho venturo and
ho was not going to bo frightened froui tho
ring. On tho fur in at homo ho hod con
quered moby a steer quito os wild and pow
erful as even thia maddened bull.
Ile was oonsoious that thousands of eyes
woro watching him with coger interest; but
Without hesitation ho advanced toward tho
bull, coolly plucing himself BO that, with
ono hand, ho could grapp tho bull's horn,
while with tho other he could scizo his
ehoggy mano. Tho young mun, meanwhile,
hud leaped to hin feet and retired to a sufo
position, leaving Joo to fi?ht tho bull
alono. Joe's modo of attaok had never
.bcfo.EC.buen seen in Portugal, and it op
pcared tho extreme of folly. A murmur
of rc fronst ra ooo was hoard iu every part
of tho audience Muny cried out for tho
ont&pinos to rush in and rescue the reek
leas youth. Tho bull did not socm to np
prcoiuto thc turu events had taken and for
a moment stood motionless. A st rango
B?ICUCO, almost ominous of defeat to our
hero, settled upon tho pa\ ilion. It was U
thrilling peono-tho bravo Bailor boy op
purontly ot thc moray of tho furious uuimal
and thousands of spectators looking on
with breathless interest
Suddenly tho bull recovered himself,
and, with an angry flaunt of his. hoad, re
newed hostilities. Joe quickly found that
clinging to a yurdarm in a tempest was less
difficult than to the bull's slippery horn;
but he wus determined to be captain of this
lively craft. Somehow ho felt that thc
honor of his country depended upon his
viotory.
As a good seaman favors his ship in a
hurricane, so Joo resolved to humor thc
bull. Ile realized that he must take caro
of his strength, for ho would uccd it beforo
he got through with his antagonist. Now
thc bull began to exhibit his wrath. ile
writhed mid hooked ond stamped. Ono
instant tho audience expected to seo poor
Jco dangling from bis horns, and thc next
trampled helpless beneath his feet. Hut
Joo clung us wo would cling to a life-line
in a feai fol surf. Puring tho intervals
of thc bull's violence, as in the water on
its ebb, he struck gallantly upon his feet,
flieh time ho did so, cries of ''Bruvol
bravo!1' rent tho air. Tho bull put forth
I groot power. Ho plunged und torc around
tho ring. Alternately he jerked and swung
Joo from his feet, und fairly spun him
through thc air. Tho pavilion tossed und
reeled, and whirled beforo Joe's giddy
sight. Round ?iud mund (lew tho bull us
in a ri>cc for lifo. Sevcrul times ho com
pleted thc circuit of tho ring; a circle of
dust tose from his track and hung over it
Uko a wreath of smoko
How Joe held old Ho feared ho could
not endure thc shock and strain for n
minute longer anet he dreaded to let go.
Put all at onco thc bull's tpced slackened.
Joo felt a thrill of gratitude us his feet
once moro touched thc ground. Ho was
tired of Hying ?nd was very glad to run.
Tho bull, convinced that ho could not
libcruto his horn from Joe's unyielding
grip, cunio to a halt and with disappointed
unger began to paw the ground. Joe lind
longed for this advantage, which strange to
say, a bull seldom gives till toward thc close
of u fight, and ho sprang directly in front of
him und firmly grusped both his horns.
'.Pravo! bravo!'1 rent thc uir. Joe bruoed
himself and waited, and when tho bull
threw his foot high in thc air With its litllo
cloud of dust, by a quick powerful move
ment, Joo twisted his head to ono side BO
strongly that thc fierce animal was thrown
off his balance, and fell heavily upon his
side.
A score of men iu?hcd in to hold him
down until ho should bo secured; then he
was rolled and taken triumphantly from thc
ring. Joo was almost deafened by the ap
plause. Ho suddenly found himself a hero
in thc estimation of thc audience and wus
overwhelmed by the ourbursts of cnthu
siiism. He was not allowed to lcavo thc
ring until he had been led to tho royal box,
where the queen, with ber own hand, passed
him a beautiful bouquet. She also extended
to him on invitation to come to tho palace
whero she herself would receive tho brave
American boy.-St. Nicholas.
Scriptural Dancing.
Dr. Eadie, tho scholar, draws tho follow*
ing conclusions from n careful collection ol
till tho passages which refer to dancing:
(1) That dancing was n religious oct in
true worship und in idol worship; (2) thal
it was practiced exclusively on joyful oe
ce si ons, such us national festivals or great
victories; (3) that it was performed on suoli
great occasions only by ono of tho sexes:
(4) that lt wos performed usually itt
the doy time, in thc open air, in tho high
ways, in holds und groves; (5) thot men
who perverted dancing from a sacred use tc
purposes of amusement woro deemed info,
mous; (G) that no instances of dancing arc
found upon record in thc Piblo in which
thc two sexes united in tho exercise, either
os an act of worship or amusement; (7)
that there arc no instance* upon record in
the Piblo of social dancing for amusement
-except that of "vain fellows" void of
shame, alluded to by Micheal; the irreligi
ous families desoribed by Job, whioh pro
duced increased impiety and destruction,
and Horodia8, whioh terminated in tho rush

llOOMS OF THE 1
STATE DEM. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, >
CoLUMMA, S.O., August 15, 1882. )
Fellow Citizens: Tho candidates nomi
nated by tho ?State .D?mocratie Convention
ot Columbia aro worthy of tho support of
tho whole people No other politioul body
will, or can, present to you candidates for
States oflioes who havo equal claims to
your confidence. Thc Dcmooraoy of South
Carolina have received the nominations
with unfeigned .satisfaction, and aro deter
mined lo elect their oundidaics. It will bo
on unmixed blessing to tho State, however,
if there shall be a truce to political strife,
and honest men, with honest purpose and
without regard to their political associations
in thc post, uuito in voting for tiro upright,
capable and faithful candidates who aro
now before tho people. Tho Domocrnoy
cannot bo expected to load themselves
down with taxation for tho benefit of their
former opponents, if thrso persist io pre
ferring politioul tromps or imported voga
bond8 to Curoliuisns of proved worth and
acknowledged merit.
Tho principles declared by tho State
Convention os formulating tho objeots and
intentions of thc Democratic party arc in
telligible, liberal and progressive. They
look to the preservation of Honest Homo
Rulo os thc paramount need of good citizens
of every condition in lifo, and they pledge
to oil thc people tho just administration
ot equal jaws, and economy with efficiency
in tho conduct of tho Government. In tho
broader arena of National affairs thc South
Curolina Democracy stand pledged to thc
reform of the toril! system, so os to lesson
tho burdens of tho people, nnd to tho rc?
form of thc civil service as a means of
improving politics. When tho political
workers shall no longer have u hundred
thousand Fed ral offices os a luro and bait
for their hungry dependents, tho power of
combinations of unscrupulous politicians
will assuredly bc broken, and for every
caudiduto, within his party, there will bo a
fair field ond no favor. The Dcmocraoy
demand likewise that tho Federal Govern?
mont, by liberal appropriations from tho
treasury for educational purposes, help thc
Southern States to convert tho present ond
rising generation of freedmen into intelli
gent and i'osponsib'o citizens. lu ull
things tho South Carolina Democracy sol
emnly bind themselves, before their fellow
countrymen, to pursuo that public policy
which will multe tho whole peoplo content,
by securing their rights, guarding their
privileges and fostering their growing pros?
polity.
Tho Stato Executive Committco remind
their Democratic fe'low-citizens that, while
thc control of South Carolina has been won
by tho party, ond with that control hos
como thc intelligent odministratiou of gov
orutnontal affairs and pcaco in every Caro-*
lina homo, tho power of tho Democracy can
only bo maintained and consolidated by
eternal vigiiauco mid untiring effort. Thc
Democracy aro not so strong that they ouc
afluid to disagree or divide. Disunion non
would bc as perilous us in tho historic cam
paign six years ago, when thc Stole wat
wrested from thc grasp of tho iguorant ond
corrupt. Toleration there should bc within
tho party lines. There is n m pl o scope und
verge there for tho assertion of individua
views and opinions. Dut those whe
abandon tho party or oppose it, bcoausn thc
mcusures they profcr havo not been adopted
moko themselves tho enemies of good gov
ernment, whether they choose to mas
querade as Independents or boldly fiauni
tho black flag of thc Republican party
Political solidarity is as important us cvci
before, and there is loss excuso than in auj
previous canvass for discontent and deser
tion. Opposition to tho Dcmooratio candi
dates and tho Democratic platform, in thu
campaign, must bc taken os proof of in
vincible ignorance, or of greed ond ambi
tion thal would sacrifice ihe brightest hopct
of tho State for tho gratification of person o
desires,
Tho Stole Committco earnestly urg<
their fellow Democrats to exert themsolvci
to tho utmost to bring out a full vote, am
to s pa ir HO piaies to Swell tho rani; s of tlx
colored Democracy. Dy well consid?r?e
Inws, repeating and ballot-box stuffing ari
alike guarded against. Tho Democracy
therefore, can go into the canvass with tin
assurance that the strength of tho opposi
tion will not bc increased by trickery o
fraud, and with tho satisfaction of know
ing that, in South Carolina, thcro shall bc
beyond dispute, ti freo nut! fair election
Dy personal exertion in exhibiting and ex
plaining to individual votera tho benefit:
und blessings of Democratic rule, thi
Dcmocraoy cun command tho intel?gon
support and continuing eu operation of tin
colored people. To this end no labor, ni
persuasion, no orgumcut should bo spored
So will tho Democracy bo proud of tin

A Railroad Jubilee.
COLUMBIA, August 24.-Tho rntlrood
moo met hero yesterday to reviso tho freight I
rates. Amoog thoso present wore Mr.
Solomon Unas, trnflio manager of
tho Associated roads; Mr. Slaughter, geoc
ral passngcr agent of tho Richmond and
?'aoville road; Mr. D. Cardwell, assistant
general freight and passenger agent of the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta sod of
tho Columbia oud O reen ville roads; Col. S.
R. PiokenB, general freight agent of thc
South Curoliua Rrilway; Mr. M. J. Ver
dery, Presidout, and Mr. Hill, goncrul
freight agent,, of tho Augusta and Knox
ville Road; Col. R. L. MoCaughrin, Presi
dent of tho Columbia and Qroenvillo Road,
and Col. A. C. Haskell, President of the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Road.
Tho freight rutes woro advanced on tho
lower classes of freight from 5 to 10 per
cent, and on the higher chesses from 10 to
20 per cent. There has been a general
advance in tho freight rotes all over tho
country. The railroad men claim that tho
country is prosperous iu almost every depart
ment o? industry and can alford to pay ad
vanced rates of transportation, sharing
with them tho increased expenditures
necessary to keep their roads in serviceable
condition.
It is expected that tho freights ovor tho
railroads in this State, during tho noxt
year, will bc at least 15 per ocnt. in excess
of the freight business done during tho
present year. Tho crop prospects were
never 80 flattering and tho business already
dotio by tho Columbia and Grcouvillo and
tho Charlotte, Columbia nud Augusta roads
in thc transportation of small grain to
markets outside of tho Stuto is altogether
without parallel in the history of tho State.
Tho Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta road
hos hauled out of tho State, during tho
presen t season, 2,000,000 pounds, and thc
Columbia and Greenville road has furnished
transportation for 3,000.000 pounds of onts.
These oats wero shipped to Charleston, Au?
gusta, Wilmington, Richmond and Haiti
more, and their salo has gono far to relieve
thc necessities of tho farmers of tho mid
dle and upper couutics.
In order to encourago industrial activity
in the Stuto aud to promoto tho interests of
all thc people the railroad passenger agents
have mude especially low rates for all tho ag
ricultural fairs in thc Stoto. Thc rate ogrecd
upon is ono cent and a half per milo for
ouch milo traveled or three cents for round
trip tickets Io addition to this all freights
for exhibition at uuy of tho fairs will bo
transported freo unless sold ot tho fairs.
Upou tho shipment of all articles for exhi
bition full rates will bc charged, payment to
bo made in advance of shipment. Upon
tho return of thc goods exhibited, howovcr,
ou thc certificate of tho secretary of the
association where exhibited tho money will
bo refunded by tho railroad agents, and thc
goods returned without oeargo to tho place
of original shipment.
The Greenback General
AN INTERVIEW WITH MU. W. W. RUSSELL,
OF A.N'DEUSON.
[From a Staff Corresponden!.]
SENECA CITY, August 17.-1 had an in
terview with Mr. Wi W. Russell thia even
ing about tho condition of tho Greenback
party and its plans. Ho said: "In Oconce
County wo have nine clubs, organized or
about to bo organized, of which one is a
colored club. This olub was orgauized
with twenty members, but I learn that its
membership hus been inorcascd. Wc ex
pect to poll from one-half lo two-thirds of
tho white vote of O oonoo County-this
much has been conceded by sonic of tho
Dcmoorats. Wc have not yet undertaken
to organizo theso pooplo, but havo so far
only organized tho disaffected throughout
tho Stuto in order to hold them in hand
until after thc State nouinations aro made,
when wo proposo to put a full State ticket
in tho field and tnuko a canvass of thc
State from thc mountains to tho seaboard.
In our Stato nominations wc will make our
selection front thc D?mocratie Stato ticket
and that selection will bo Col. J, N. Lips
comb. Tho rest of tho Greenback ticket
will bc sclented from tho best material wo
cnn .'??et in thc State, men, if possible, who
havo not boen connected with politios in
thc Slate, and young men if wc oan get
them. Circumstances will have to direct
us in our choice of a nominee for Governor.
Unless wo can nominate a man who will
piomote tho beat and truest interests of thc
pcoplo, BO fur as 1 am concerned tho posi
tion of Governor on our tiokct may bo left
blank. I think very well of Mr. Campbell's
nomination, but do not know anything
about it.
"Tho basis of representation in our
Stato Convention will bo ooo dolegato from
each organized olub. No estimulo of thc
p.icngth of tho olubs oan bo given, but wo
havo organizations in ovcry county in tho
State, with tho exception of Abbeville,
Newberry, Laurens, Union and York.
"Wo will nominato n candidato for
Congress in osoh of tho Congressional
Districts. Mr. Raskin will probably get
tho nomination in tho lilack District, Col.
Cash iu tho Fifth, Mr. J. Hendrix Me I/ano
in tho Fourth, Col. 1). Wyatt Aiken in
tho Third. I have not thought of who
tho candidates moy bo in tho other dis
tricts."
1 naked Mr. Russell if there was any
truth in tho story that ho had received
830,000 with which to make tho Green
back canvass in South Carolina. Ho said:
"No, tboro is uot ono syllablo of truth in
such a report. It is altogether fatso. If
you want to know who is furnishing tho
money to conduct our fight I can tell you
that it is thirteen Carolina farmcra. Ask
tho National Dank ot Anderson and thoy
cnn tell you how much I sui giving to tho
i oauso. I only wish that no did havo 830,
I OOO. I wish somebody would givo us

Tho New York Tribune says: "So littlo
has been said during tho last six months
about tho condition of tho colored rofugeee'
in Kansis that tho peoplo in this part of
tho country havo settled down into tho'
comfortable belief that their destitution has
been permanently rolicved. But such
docs not seem to bo tho foot. Ex-Judgd'
James DoLoog, of Ind?pendance, Kansas/
is now upon a trip through tho Eastern
States for tho purpose of convincing as'
many persons os possible that 'there oro
over 10,000 of thoso people now in at?"
solute poverty in tho State of Kansas,
eating nothing but corn bread, water and,
greens, nnd somo aro dying of want.'
Judgo DoLong, brings letters from Gover
nor St. Jobo, Judgo Wagstaff, and many
others guaranteeing his integrity and
knowledge of tho subject. Ho explain?'
tho destitution whioh bc hopes to relievo
by saying that theso 10,000 rofugooa'
havo no money to pay for tho Govern*
ment land they aro oooupying and riof
appliances for cultivating lt; that it ia
almost impossible for thom to obtain ot
clay's work oven in tho short busy season,
and that tho pooplo of Kansas havo al
ready contributed tho last dollar that thoy
can afford."
In Mr. Glad^onj's mnstorly spoochoa

India, but as a highway for tho general
