Smashed Car Windows.
Augusta, (ia., May 22.-Kev. Dr.
Klugh, pastor of Union Baptist
church, this city, said to a Chronicle
reporter last night : "I am just back
from tlie 'Promised Land,' South
Carolina, where I went to preach a
funeral, and, on leaving tho station
our train struck a great hail Storni.
Hail fell thick and fast, in all sorts of
shapes and forms, varying sizes from
a plum to a large baseball. Thirteen
windows of our train wore com
pletely smashed. It seemed that
bands of boys were rocking our train
as it passed on in thc black dark
ness till we reached Yerdrcy. Hero
wc found the ground well covered
with blocks of ice. Doubtless groat
damage was done to both animal
and vegetable life. No one in that
community has ever seen tho like
before. 1 fear that sonic who left
thc church on route horne were killed

Very Destructive in Saluda County.
Saluda, May 22.-Sunday morn- .
lng, where there were large hud ?
promising fields of wheat and oats, !
now there is naught but ruin as a 1
result of the destructive hail which j
fell in many sections of thu county
late Sunday afternoon. Reports j
have been received from tho /uar,
Richardson ville, Bloaso Cross Roads
and Denny sections .so far, and the
damage cannot he appreciated unless
one were to sec tl?0 destruction
which was wrought. Tho wheat
and oat crop, which was much above
the average, was destroyed com
pletely in many places, while tho
cotton and corn will have to be re
planted. The area of the boil storm
was about twelve miles in length,
but fortunately it was not so heavy \
in many places. Near Richardson- !
ville several crops were demolished
arid the same fate met others at.
/oar and Denny's. Whore the hail
stones were piled up by tho wind
against fences they measured as
much as eighteen inches in depth.
The stones fell as large as guinea
eggs and the foliage was stripped
from the trees. Window panes
were shattered wherever exposed.
Mr. T. (). Allaway, a large and
prosperous farmer, living three miles
south of Saluda, stated this morning
that where he was expecting to har
vest twenty bushels of wheat to thc
fiore ho would not get li vi?. This is
but one of many similar reports
made to your correspondent this
morning from many communities.
Additional reports received late
this afternoon indicate that tho de
struction by the hail of Sunday was
moro far-reaching than it was first
supposed. It now appears that hun
dreds of acres of wheal, and oats, in
stead of ii few farms, were com
pletely ruined, Mr. W. <). (larson
has just come in from Ol c portion of
the hail-.stricken district, bringing
With him a bucket full of the stones,
which now, after twenty-four hours,
measure from a half to three-quart
ers of an inch in diameter. Ile says
that '.he hail in some places was still

MAJOR AMBLER, OF PlCKENS.
An Old-Timor, Who Delights in Making Othors
Laugh, Visits Greenwood.
Major Jas. Ilagood Ambler, of
Pickens county, was in the oity last
Friday. Major Ambler went out
with Mr. J. C. Caldwell to his home
in the country, where ho spent tho
night, and Saturday ho went over to
Ninoty-Six and to Fellowship
church, whero ho waB born 86 years
ago last Saturday. James Ambler,
Major James II. Ambler's father,
was from Virginia and moved to
South Carolina in tho early days and
settled in tho Cambridge section of
the State. Sometime aftor his son
James was born tho father moved to
Old Pondloton District, a part of
which is now Pickens county. Tho
move was made on account of chills
and fever which prevailed at that
time in all that section around Cam
bridge. Major Ambler lives on tho
old family homestoad in Pickens
and, though approaching four-score
and-ten, is a lively, interesting old
gentleman, and can relate many
incidents of tho old timo that would
refresh the memory of an "old-timer"
and bring a toar or a smile to those
who are younger-but with jovial
disposition he is inclined to tell you
a thousand things to laugh at and
not ono to cry over.
Major Ambler was a member of
tho South Carolina Legislature from
1854 to 1858, and he remembers
many pleasant things that occurred
while ho was a legislator. While in
The Journal oflice last Friday he
spoke of Joseph Daniel l'ope, who
was a member from I Jean fort at that
time, but is now a resident of Colum
bia. One day while there was a lull
of business in thc House of Repre
sentatives, Mr. Pope picked up a
scrap of paper and wrote the follow
ing linos :
"Wo bave a clerk that's hard to beat,
His name's not slow, but Sloan,
Ho wields his pen with facile art,
With work, though e'er so laden,
Ho knows tho members' names by heart,
Prom Ambler down to Yeadon."
Clerk Sloan, mentioned in tho
lines, was the father of John T.
Sloan, of Columbia, and Dr. II.
Sloan, of Ninoty-Six. Major Amb
ler's name was the first on the roll
of members of thc Legislature and
Mr. Yeadon's was thc last. Major
Ambler was, therefore, the first to
vote upon any question, and lie
remembers now what a hard time he
bad in leading off when puzzling
questions came up and lie had to
vote yes or no without an example
Major Ambler is in good health
for a man of his age. He wont to
Washington last March to see Prcsi
dena McKinley inaugurated and
caught the grip while he was on top
of the dome of tho capitol watching
tho inauguration ceremonies. It
took some timo and good nursing to
bring bim through, but he is all
right now. Ile spoke of his visit to
Arlington and Mt. Vernon, and said
he was the object of much curiosity
because of the home-made suit that
he wore. Ile raises sheep and still
Imlds to an old loom, and he was a
show in Washington with home

cially old farmers, wore fifty years

Tho following statement, given
out by Dr. Ilartzog, of Clemson Col
lege, will be of interest to tho farmers
in ovory section of this Stato :
Farmers' institutes will bo hold in
a limited nutnbor of counties this
summor for tho instruction of tho
people in various brmcheB of agri
cultural science. Tho course of
lectures will be arranged to present
to those in attendance tho results of
tho most recent investigations in
theoretical and practical agriculture
and, as far a? possible, to make tho
subjects discussed meet tho special
needs of tho locality whoro the insti
tute is hold.
All oxpcnscB of tho meeting will
be met.by thc College. Tho com
munity in which the institute is held
is expected to provide a suitable
place for the speaking, to advertise
the mooting and to arrango tho
minor details. It is desirable that
local speakers and writers assist in
thc exercises of the institutes by dis
cussing subjects in which they aro
most interested, or in which they
havo had successful experience.
For any place to secure an insti
tute it will bo necessary for at leatt
fifteen citizens to petition therefor.
Petitions must be sent in not later
than July 1,
It may not bc practicable always
to hold the institute on tho day
desired by thc community, as dif
ferent places sometimes ask for the
same date. The final selection of
tho dato must, therefore, bc left to
tho College authorities, but tho
wishes of the community will be
observed as far ns practicable.
Tho annual State Farmers' Insti
tute will begin at Clemson on
August 12. Further information
will be given later.

At Cherry's Crossing Col, Jas, '

[From the Col
When you go to Clemson Collogo
by rail via Anderson, you stop at a
station on tho Blue Ridge road
called Chorry's Crossing-two milos
from tho collogo. Chorry's Crossing
is a very lonely place in a very pic
turesque country. To bo at Clemson
Collogo, is, in our opinion, to bo high
up in Abraham's bosom. Therefore,
it does not matter how lonely the
gatoway may bo.
Arriving at Clemson on Friday
afternoon, May 10th, from tho Dio
cesan Council in Greenville, and full
of tho great and truo glory of the
apostolic succession, wo sleop in
peace and comfort in tho barracks.
At Clemson there is peace and com
fort even in the barraoks-Btrango as
it may Bcem. On Saturday morning
early wo hear that the flowor of Se
neca's people is coming down to
Cherry's Crossing at 10 o'clock for a i
May picnic. Seneca is tho lovely, i
refined and very progressive moun- i
tain town nine miles above Clemson i
Collego. We decide to go to Seneca 1
picnic. It runs in our head that it i
will bo heavenly. Wo know that i
everybody will be kind to us and i
agreeable, but wo especially hope to I
moot our dear friends, Mrs. Dr. A. '.
Ii. Hines and Mrs. M. W. Coleman, i
founder and ex-President of thc Wo- <
man's Federation of Clubs in our i
State. A young barraoks oflicor, be- i
hind an extremely fiery Arabian I
steed, drives us to tho scene. When 1
wo arrive near the scone, the young <
officer is seized with a deadly fear
that we are vulgarly early. As for :
ourself, wo have Burvivod tho feeling
of shame, but wo say nothing, and
tho young oflicer drives us a quarter i
of a milo further, down a grand hill,
to tho "iron bridge" aorosB tho Se- i
noca rivor. It is a beautiful now <
modern bridge, and the spot is one of :
uncommon beauty. On tho bridge,
which stands very high aboyo tho
lovely, swift-llowing Seneca, wo find
two young gentlemen fishing-Prof.
Newman, of Clemson Collego, and
his tiny little grandson, Stanley, who
is a bright and handsome little boy.
With one hand Stanley holds on to
his line, while with the other he
clasps to his bosom two "cats." Ono
of these cats is largor than Job'B be
hemoth that was able to drink tho
river Jordan dry at one draught,
whilo the other is very small. Stan
loy informs us with extreme exulta
tion that ho has caught tho behe
moth, while his grandpa has only
hauled up thc wee cat.
THU TUKKS WIIKKK 1MCKKNS STOOD
WITH TllK INDIANS.
Assuring tho proud young officer
that tho hour of oxtremo gentility
had fully arrived, wo drove back,
and, through a wide-swinging, old
time gate, enter tho grounds of tho
once proud Cherry mansion. It Bits
on a bill, and tho now Bomowhat bar
ren lawns around it is dotted with
ancient oaks. This was tho original
homo of old Brig. Gon. Andrew
Pickens and bia wife Rebecca Cal
houn, and hero he sat in pow-wow
with tho Indians, made his famous
treaty of peace with them, and so
cured their everlasting friendship
and love. In the graveyard of tho
historical "Old Stone Church," two
miles away, he and Kebeooa Calhoun
are buried. Thuir tombs aro in good
preservation, A part of this estate,
lying lower down the rivor, but ad
joining, Gen. Andrew Pickens gavo
to his son, Ezekiel Piokcns, who is
also buried at the Old Stone church,
as is also Gov. Andrew Pickens,
whilo Gov. Francis W. Pickens sleeps
in Edgell old, a few hundred yards
from where wo are writing. Theso
two plantations are still spoken of
by tho old pcoplo as "tho Andrew
Pickens place" and "tho Ezekiel
Piokons place." When this property
wont out of tho hands of tho Pick
onses it went into those of a rich
and prominent family named Cherry.
Tho Andrew Pickens place, the
scene of the picnic, is now owned by
Miss Mary Cherry, a lovoly and bo
loved young girl who is now nt tho
Presbyterian College for Women,
Columbia, while the Ezekiel Piokons
place is tho property of her mother,
Mrs. JOPBO W. Strihling, a promi
nent and popular society leader of

which many new-rioh Yankees would
now give largo sums of money. It
is, howoYor, occupied only by a whito
tenant of Miss Chorry's, who takcB
oaro of tho property and keeps up a
largo modern dairy farm.
A MAMMOTH CHURN Ol' LEMONADE,
Mr. and Mrs. Stribling received us
with ease and cordiality, saying to
the proud young oflioer that he is
"late," and then Mrs. Stribling
wavcB us to a mammoth modern
swinging churn, Bitting at one end of
tho long and anoient piazza. We
puch tho proud young ofllcer and
whisper to him scornfully, "Butter
milk." But not so. Tho modern
churn holds a million gallons, and it
is full of royal ice lemonade. Five
million lemons, live million pounds
of sugar and five million pounds of
ice havo been churned up in it. it
is a heavenly vision-and, unlike
most of earth's joys, proves not to
be fleeting. And then after we have
swallowed a gallon of lemonade, and
thanked God, Mrs. Stribling kindly
introduces us to tho heads of the
tribes. The idoa of old Andrew
Piokens treating with tho Indians is
strong in our minds, and tinctures all
our ideas. So much so that wo look
upon all tho elderly mon and women
is heads of tho tribes. We even
look for wampum and feathers and
beads and tomakawks. The heads
of tribes aro kind and cordial, and

Indeed the only way ono differenti

in one of the largo front rooms of

tho two-stop. Did this spinet be

We whack, and as we do so, fair
ghosts of former Pickcnses and
Cherrys rise up before us. But the
Seneca roses and the lavender boys
seo no ghosts. They aro young and
they soo only each other. They
dance and whirl and glide and twist
and swim. They waltz equisitely,
and soon tho stock collar wilts

Wo agree with the Yorkville
Enquirer when it says : "Wc again
beg to remark that the only recog
nized rule of Democracy in South
Carolina is loyalty to tho result of
tho primary election. Any white
man has a right to advocate, within
tho primary, any view that ho may
seo proper to advocate. The white
voters themselves are the judges as
to what they prefer, and the man
who is afraid to trust these white
voters on any proposition, is not a
Democrat. That is not Northorn or
Western Democracy, but it is good
in Soul li Carolina."

"A woman with a pet dog can
make more kinds of a fool of herself
than any other human being under
tho Run," savagely remarked ono of
tho salesmen in a Chestnut street
jewelry store yesterday, says the
Philadelphia Record. "A girl with
an ugly brute of a bull dog came in
this morning and said she wanted to
look at garters. I showed her
several very handsome pairs, but she
said she wanted three, all alike. I
thought sjic meant three pairs, but
it turned out she wanted three
garters, two for herself and one to
match them for her dog. A friend
of hers who had just returned from
abroad had told her that it was
quite tho thing in Paris and London
for dogs to wear garters on the loft
foi clegs Lo match those worn by
their owners. Did you ever hear of
such idocy ? Of course, the garters
wero much too large for this girl's
pet, and she decided that sho would
havo ono made to order. She felt
herself to bo very much aggrieved
because we wouldn't Undertake tho
commission for her, and she flounced
out of the store in a potty rage."
