"A5 T13 POKEN SNTINCL
rurion to Too& 0i.
Ma. EIToZ--At time In our' lives
there ar hours, soetivaes whqeO
d1Ys, of snoh perfOct enjoyment that
w6 forget,.for the' time, that there is
so much of sorrow and pain in the
world. Such a day came to many of
us while on our "excursion" to Too
coa last Saturday. Now, that it is
gone, the memory of it is so pleasant
that we love to speak of it.
Before 5 o'clock "Cousin John" had
gathered his happy company into the
train. The company numbered nearly
one hundred. At five, the bell rang,
the whistle blew, and soon we weie
steaming away to our destination. A
slow run of three hours and a half
brought us to Toccoa. There we
found Mr. Cobb, with plenty of hacks
to convey such as wished to ride out
to the Falls. We started immediately
for the Falls, some walking and some
riding. The carriage road ends some
two or three hundred yards from the
Falls. As we walked up the pathway
by the beautiful little stream, a sud
don turn in the valley brought us at
once into full view of the Falls, in all
its glorious beauty. And beautiful it
was indeed, far exceeding the expec
tations of all who had never seen it
before. Some rushed forward eagerly
with exclamations of delight. others
paused, and stood with bated breath,
drinking in the scene silently. As we
atcod gazing, we were conptrained to
cry out: "Oh, nature thou art God! So
grandl so indescribablel" After a little
we walked up to the pool, at the foot
of the Falls. It was no Niagara,
rushing down with its eternal thunder
peals, but as we stood and gazed up
at the stream, as it pitched beadlong
with a sheer descent of 186 feet from
the hugo mountain of rock, we felt
that the groat heighth gave just
enough grandeur to the scene, when
mingled with the beautiful, to rouse
all the deepest emotions of our hearts.
SAfter enjoying the scene below for
some time, we started for the summit.
Ascending a precip)itous path for sev
1 oral hundred yards, we reached the
top. Drawing near the edge of the
r p)recipice, we looked from the dizzy
height down into-the far off valley.
IWhile looking at the seemingly small
proportion of those wvhom we had lf
I' In the valley, we felt as if we were,
Sfor once in our lives, above some of
-our follow catures. Afterwards we
had some fun wading tho creek. The
"guide" was there, but '-not alone in
his glory" this time. .We think if he
were allowed to tell his story, that lhe
would say it was one of the happiest
days of his life. But his lips are
closed. The sweet lips of fair ladies
have spoken and commanded silence;
Stherefore he must obey or risk their
displeasure. After much pleasure on
Sthe. "top," we descended to the bottom.
3 We thena had son'o refresban,ents, for
a which the ascent of the mountain bad
Sgiven us "hugeous" appetit.es. That
a finished, we spent some time in stroll
t ing.' Some of us smused ourselves in
carving our names and those of the
- ladies, on the trees, they looking on
1 during the performance, and carving
a bright images on our hearts. At
' length, all being tired of strollIng, we
selected various cool, pleasant spots,
and sat down to rest ere we returned
Ito the city. The Drs. were there and
took their rest in a game of whist. It
was so pleasant to sit in some cool
place, where we could have a good
Sview of the Falls, and converse of its
beauty with some fair lady. Of course,
under the circumsntances, some tender
Slove thoughts would arise. We
thought how much. we would like to
find a love that might be compared to
the scene before us; a love which,
like the stream before us, would flow
on ceaselessly as long as life should
last; a love that would shine purely
aud brightly, as the silvery stream be
fore us; a love that would remain as
firm, as eternally steadfast as the
mighty rocks before us. We thought
how often our souls had hungred and
cried out for such a blessed love.
Sometimes when we thought suoh a
thrilling draught was almost within
our roach, we would reach out eager
ly to grasp it, but alas, vainly, fc.r
some one would come and snatch it
from our outstretched han -1e and drink
it as carelessly as if it Were but a daily
drink, or perhaps some cruel, re
morseless hand would dash'rudely to
tbe earth Vthat we would have died to
win. But such is life. But what are
we doing? Even as our thoughts
wandered afar from the Falls, so we
ha,. wandered from the main subject.
I We will return. After some time
- spent pleasantly, we returned,so
beautiful Vntt Springs, where thore
is t large hotel, built for the benefit of
,hobd who visit the springs. Whae
we roacd Toccoa, it not being train
time, we were invited by that kind
and perfot gentleman, Mr. Daven
port, the proprietor of the Toccoa
Hotel, to rest with him. A pleasant
resting place it was, indeed. There
we were most delightfully entertained
with deliious music by Mr R. and
Miss D. Iettrything paosed off aq
far quietly. But now a li.ttle distur%
bance occured, of course by that arch
fiend intemperance. Messrs A. and
D.,,who had a fuss at Central, renew%
ed the feud at Toccoa, 1hich resulted
in D's getting his thumb almost torn
oft while warding off a blow with a
The bours for returning having at
length arrived, we seated ourselves in
the coaches and soon were steaming
away homeward. The time returning
was spent pleasently in conversation
on the enjoyments of the day. Some
of us enjoyed ourselves in swinging
from steps of the coaches, catching the
cool breeze, and better than that, the
sweet smiles from the fair faces that
peeped from the windows. But thdre
is "never a sweet without its bitter,"
and we got our Ahare of the bitter in
that operation, for we got our eyes
full of smoke and cinders from the en
gine, which "caused the tears to rush
unbidden" into our eyes. We felt
sure'that our eyes looked as if we had
lost our sweethearts, or had been on a
"double and twisted bonder." On
our way, after we had crossed Seneca
river, we were saluted by showers of
fruit, &c., from the ladies gathered on
the roadside, but were not so fortu
nate as to get them. Yes, one fellow
did get one on his head, which knock
ed off his cap, and he had to jump off
and get it and walk to Central. We
all arrived safely at Central at 7 P. i.
Thinkir.g that we had just as well
"make a day of it" as we had com
menced early, we concluded to have
a party at night, to fimish off on. Mr.
R., whose kindness in that line, we
must admire, and heartily thank him
for, allowed us the privilege of meet
ing at his houso. There we spent
several hours very pleasantly. Our
esteemed friend, Prof. Douthit, hap
penied to be there, on his wvay to Eas
ley. Some of us left the dancing
room, and gcing to the room where
the Prof., with bis organ was, we
pursuaded him to give us some splen,
did music. Among others, we liked
the "Home Sweet Home," and the
"Old School House" beat. As we sat
listening, floods of sweet tender mom.
ornes came thronging our hearts with
thrilling echoes. Though ts of joyous
childhood, of hopeful youth, of lelas
ant school days that are gone, gone,
forever, came rushing over our bearns
with such force, that we were almost
overwhelmed. Even now the
thoughts come so that I must stop
and say fare well. ROVER.
FOR T HE PICKLENs SENTINEL.
MR. EDITOR-AS the fence la w seems
to be an intereting subject at present,
and indeed it is at a11I times with farm
ens, I desire a little space in your
columns, to show more fully some of
the causeS why I do not think it will
suit the farmers of th is mountainous
country to adopt the "no fence" law.
In the upper townships in this County
there is, according to my estimation,
about three fourths of the land in ori,
ginal forest, which affords a more
bountiful supply of pasturage for all
kinds of stock than any enclosed pas..
tunes that can be practically adopted
at least for a few years, while a great
portion of these lands were so framed
by nature as to never be cultivated
to advantage; yet they afford voxy
good pasturage both summer and
winter. There are a great many
farmers living in the valleys on those
mountain streams who have very 1it,
tIe upsland enclosed, consequently
they have no land to spare for a pass
tune. The introduction of clover or
somc good substantial pasture grass
would materially change the condi-.
tion of affair's in this country; but that
still awaits development, not hav.ng
been successfully tried. The common
sedge grass that grows on old worn
out fields, will make a tolerably good
spring pasture for a row years, but
fails In hot dry summer weather. I
think the people of Pickens County
had better hold on to the old fence
law, and more especially the upper
portion, where timber is not scarce and
the natural range Is far bettor thari
any we have as yet substituted. So
far s regards the manurmng and deep
eiultivation of the soil I heartily agree
with Mr. McMaa;n and beanwa I t7a
Oe the very key-tosuccessful farming
but bftv?ag the fat* fenclo will In no
wise prevedt ul bd ng st,l fto 04
tIe, plo%ing deep ald manurintg wel,
and when 4ur cattle are running in
the range w6 can v*y ea# pn theM
at night and-all the manure saved in
this way wil be a clear gain so far as
our farms are oneerned. Every farm
or who has tried a flock of sheep in a
paaure for a few years, jinows the
dikasterous result, "&ftpr they ieVe
been kept on a pasturb for two or
three years, without being changed
they take the "rot" and die "instau,
ter." I know the people of this por,
tion of Pickens County are in -a"poor
ax" just now to adopt. the "no fence"
law, having no clover fields, no mead
ows, no grass of any kind except the
native old field sedge, which will not
stand continued pastnrage longer than
three years. I think the first neces
aary step to be taken in the matter is
to see what we can do towards mak
ing good pastures, let us try clover,
grasses, etc., and see how they grow
on our soil. I am desirou6 tQ see our
people wake up to the inport'nco of
these tbings, to see every god fartin
er have his clover patch, his ft acies
of well Fet gras, both for hay 'and
pasture; to see agriculture more di
versified, and consequently more pros,
perous; to see the suicidal pclicy of
planting the same piece of land in
cotton or corn for twenty years at a
strttch set aside, and a more econom%
ical rotation policy adopted. When
we find by actual experience that we
can succeed in growing the necessary
grasses, clover, etc., and get our pas
tures ready, then as a matter of course
we can easily dispense with the fences
arourd our farms. But until we get
these arrangements made we had bet
ter, in my judgment, hold on to the
old system. In conclusion, Mr. Ed,
itor, allow me to say, for my own
township, I do not think we' will be
likely to adopt the fence law in less
time than a score of years; b)ut, it, may
be practicable for some of the lower
townshipd to adopt it sooner, where
the people are more thickly settled
and timber not so p)lenty; but at pres
ent I doubt if any p)ortion of the
County is ready for the change.
What. the Bilious 1Require.
EFince torpidity of the liver Is the chief cause
of its disorder, it is evident that what the
bilious require is an alterative stimulant
which will arouse it to activity, an effect that
is followed by the disappearance of the va
rious symptoms indicative of its derangement.
Hostetter's Stomach Bit ters invariably achieve
the primary result mentioned, besides remov
ing the constipation, flatulence, heart--burn,
yellowness of the skin and whites of the eyes,
pain in the right side and under the right
shoulder, nausea, vertigo and sick headache,
to, which bilious invalids are peculiary sub
ject. As a remedy for chronic indigestion,
mental despondency and nervousness the Bit.
ters are equally efficacious, and as a renovant
of lost vigor, a means of arreeting premature
decay, and a source of relief from the infirmi
ties to which the gentler sex is peculiarly
subject, they may be thoroughly relied dpon.

MR. H. R. STRVENe-Dear Sir: ilhgugh i
stranger' I-want to.inform'ybh What'Vegetine
has done for me.
Last Christmas Scrofula nade its appear-.
ance in my sy6tem-latge running ulceirs ap-.
peai ing on me, as follows: one on each.ot my
arms; one on IMy thigh, whidh extided to
the seat; one on my head, which ate into the
skull bone: one on my left leg. which be
came so bad that two physicians came to am..
putate the limb, though upon consultation
concluded not to do so, as my whole body
was full of scrofula; they deemed it advisable
to cut the sore, which was painful beyond
description, and there was a quart, of matter
run from this one sore.
The physicians all gave me up to die, and
said they could do no more for me. Both of
my legs were drawn up to my seat., and it. was
thought. if I. did get up again I would be a
cripple for life.
When in this condition I saw Vegetine ad
vertised, and commenced taking it in March,
and followed on with it until I had usei six..
teen bottles; and this morning I am going to
plough corn, a well man. All my townsmen
say it, is a miracle to see me round walking
In conclusion I will add, when I was en
during such great. suffering from that dread
ful disease, scrofula. I prayed to the Lord
above to take me out of this world; but as
Vegetine has restored to me the blesings of
health, I desire more thA ever to live, that I
may be of some #ervice to my tellow..men; and
I know of no be'Ner way to aid suffering hu
inanity than to enclose you thais statement of
my case, withI an earniest hope that, you will

praise; for I was trouhled over thirty years
with that dreadful disease. Catarrhi, and ha:d
such bad cough ing spells that it would seemi
as though I could never breathe any more,
and Vegetine has cured me; and 1 do feel t.o
thauk God all the time that. there is so good
a medicine as Vegetiune; and z also think it
one of the best medicines for coughs, and
weak, sinking feelings at the stomach, and

can assure them it is one of the best medi.
