\ MONUMENT IX) HAMPTON.
Editor? Intelligencer.* In Septem
berr, IS76? 8<mth Carolin*, lifted her
manacled hands to Heaven, for the
ory bad gone forth that a deliverer had
gris?e to avenge her wrongs. For
weary years oppression and robbery,
like a fearful tidal wave, had surged
opon the shores of our dear State,
and receding, had left behind it the
?CUm of the humanity of other regions.
These pcopie of many colors, and of
all degrceB of raeoality, had obtained
possession of the higheetv planes in
our prouud old legislative halls. And
other dangers menaced us, for wo
men's faces were blanched with fear,
?Ddj like the dark-skinned people of
the Old Testament, their pries went
up night and day for as trong ara* io
come to their relief. In auoh an ex
tremis the whole land turned to one
man, 00e name was on every Jip, one
love filled every heart. And who was
our hero of '"Table Found" who flash
ed the sword esoalibor from mountain
to sea? And who waa our knight of
thc White Crusade who carno to our
rescue in that hour of midnight dark
DesB? And who was the soldier ?that
crossed the battlements of a forlorn
hope and proclaimed peaoe instead of
war? A man greater than Alexander,
who was simply a boastful oonqueror,
?nd greater than Napoleon Bonaparte
who was ever, and always,- a selfish
brute. And this was the name and
the prayer that ascended from the
fair land to Heaven; from the the lips
of stern men, whose eyes glanced fire,
ind from the quivering throats of 'wo
men: "Hampton I Dear God, s end us
And where was the warrior whom
we adored? Out from the banks of a
beautiful mountain river on a rook,
stood a carelessly dressed man engag
ed in fishing. Suddenly the sound of
a horse's hoofs broke the intense quiet
of thc sleepy woods, from whenoe
emerged a man mounted on a horse
that seemed almost spent with fatigue.
"Hello, G?n?ral !" said the tired
"Hello!" said the man on the rook.
"Gen ral, you're wanted."
"Wanted for what?"
"You're wanted for Governor of

Next oame the first Red Shirt Regi
ment, originated and organized by
Colonel A. J. Sitton, and which
marched one night to the sound of
wartime yells, into the torch lit square
of old Pendleton; and that same night
the campaign cry, which afterwards
swept the State from the falls of the
White Water, to the stones of Fort
Sumter, arose: "Hurrah for Hamp
And now we will return to the Sep
tember day, when a long truin of oars
pulled out from Pendleton, filled with
maa who cheered from windows and
platforms, while women waved their
handkerchiefs, and smiled amid tears;
for sometimes in life it is vouchsafed
to us to ory for rapturous joy.
I sat in front of Hampton, and will
draw a pioture of him, as he then ap
peared. A superbly handsome man
with very dark, almost black, curly
hair, sincere blue eyes, fine features,
and the height and proportions of an
athlete. His costume was intensely
careless, (true greatness can afford to
be unconventional), and consisted of a
coat, a checked shirt front, no collar
or necktie, and a slouched hat a good
deal the worse for wear. A mutual
friend introduced us,' and he bowed
his head, saying: "This thing is very
unexpected. I was in tho mountains
fohi.. j, and they sent a oourier after
me. I have on no collar or neoktie,
but when we got to Anderson I'll bor
row some from Whitner." Then I
became aware that the glorious sol

during the Civil War, whoa the fam

to find Hampton. The General, ex
hausted with fatigue, had dismounted,
and, leaning against a pine tree slept;
while beside him, on guard, stood bis
faithful war-horse. Aad so the sol
dier found Hampton.
I think I see a granite pedestal, and
upon it in bronze, or marble, the hero,
the pine tree, and the horse. And I
think there might be carved upon tho
stone: To the memory of the men who
sacrificed everything but honor for the
South and who stepped into the

CHRISTMAS IN THE WEST.
Editors Intelligencer : While in
Aspen, Colo., we spent a very pleas
ant Christmas and I want to tell your
readers how Christmas is celebrated
in a Colorado mining oamp.
In preparing for Christmas for the
small boy of the family, I went to a
store to get what the Southern boy
thinks an indispensable article-fire
crackers. Imagine my surprise to
hear they had none. I asked where I
could fine some? The olerk looked at
me very muoh surprised and said: "I
don't think you oan find any in town."
I went home and was telling an old
resident of the town that ? oould not
find a firecracker in town, and he
asked: ''What do you want with
firecrackers for Christmas? We have
them for 4th of July." I replied:
"That is the way the boys celebrate it
in tho South." He said: "We have
good dinners, give gifts and have a
social celebration. I never heard of
firecrackers for Christmas." Then
the thought comes: "The cultivated
enlightened South might learn a lesson
from the "wild and woolly West."
Christmas has many mysteries for
the ohildren. The little Southern
boy wanted to know how Santa Glaus
was ooming down the stove ohimney,
as there were no fire-places, and he
feared he would miss his visit, but
the Sunday Sohool at the Baptist
Church the night before Christmas
solved the problem for him. A large
Christmas Tree, well ladened with
toys, books and many nioe things to
eat, stood in the church, and when all
the ohildren were seated admiring it,
who should come in but Santa Claus,
and he oame in through the door, and
was dressed ic fur and had a long
beard. He made them a speech and
told them to come regularly to Sunday
Sohool and study the lessons and help
the teachers to have a good Sunday
Sohool, and then the presents were
delivered to the delight of the ohil
The Methodist Sunday Sohool had a
snow house filled with good things for
Christmas day dawned bright and
olear, and was so quiet and still, not ?
gun, firecracker, or any noise, save
the jingling of the merry sleigh bells,
was heard in town. The stores were
beautifully decorated with the moun
tain pine-that being the only ever
green they have. Even the meat mar
kets were elaborately deoorated. One
had a large pine tree in the centre of
the room, festooned with strings of
popoorn and other ornaments. Din
ner was first-class and much enjoyed.
AU seemed happy.
After dinner comes the sleigh rid
ing, whioh is the ohief amusement
there in winter. A large sleigh,
drawn by six white horses, filled with
merry boys and girls, who carried a
violin, mandolin and other musical
instruments, and they seemed to vie
with the merry sleigh bells in making
music, while the hordes dashed over
the beautiful snow.
Many young people go to the skat
ing pond after supper. A large lot
pcrfeotly level is prepared by turning
water on the snow, and it will freeze
and make n smoothe icy surface to
skate on-a beautiful amusement.
: Altogether I think the Western way
wore appropriate to celebrate the
birth of our Saviour than the South
Wishing all the readers a merry
Christmas and a happy New Year, I

In Dr. John Hall's time it was the
custom in his church to use the old
fashioned, simple hymns, and the
singing was congregational.
On one occasion William M. Evarts
.discovered E. Delafield Smith, then
corporation counsel of New York city,
singing with all his heart and whis
pered to his friend:.
"Why, there, is Smith singing, '1

wanted to be district attorney, but I
didn't know he wanted to be an an

Clemson's Fine Textile School.
In his auoual report to the board of
trasteos of Clemson College President
Mell incorporates tho following infor
mation famished him by Prof. J. H.
M. Beaty, direotor of the textile de
partment of the college, whioh was es
tablished a few years ago:
"For the past few years, the increase
in the production of manufactured cot
ton goods, in the south, has been at
an enormous rate, so that, at present,
southern mills practically control thc
output of plain white f abrios. So long
as there is a bale of cotton in the south
to be manufactured, so long may we
expeot cotton mills to be erected in the i
south. But as the coarse goods sup
ply is already up to the demands, the j
prospecting manufacturer must look
into the production of ? finer class of
It is the purpose of this school to
prepare young men so that after they
leave here, they may be competent to
secure positions in mills making any
class of gocds whatever. This depart
ment has endeavored, and I think has
succeeded, in keeping abreast of the
needs of southern mills, yet all of the
divisions of the work are more or less
hampered for lack of proper equip
"Several new machines, and also a
considerable amount of apparatus for
experimental purposes, have boen add
ed to the department, and some other
equipment has been arranged for.
But still the need for additional equip
ment is urgent. The supply of power
looms is not adequate for the number
of students using them. Sometimes
there are several students working on
the carno loom or standing about wait
ing an opportunity to get a loom on
whioh to demonstrate some design
gotten out by them. This prevents
one getting the very best work out of
the students. An yet there is no ma
chinery in the school for printing,
mercerizing, otc, and as all this olass
of finishing is done north for southern
milln, it is quite important that we
should make arrangements in the near
future for giving instruction along
those lines. To add the machinery
named above will require a considera
ble amount of money, for two reasons;
first, these special machines are ex
pensive, and seoond, the multiplica
tion of textile sohools throughout the
country has produced suoh a drain on
tho generosity of maohine builders
that they have arrived ao the point of
not donating, but charging half price
for machinery shipped these sohools.
So in the future we may expeot to pay
something like half value for all addi
tional maohine equipment."
President Mell adds:
"Prof. Beaty also reports that the
past year has been the most success
ful in the history of the sohools. The
soope and thoroughness of the instruc
tion ha*- > < * needed that of any former
year. All the instructors have been
deeply interested in their work, and
have put the students through a broad
er and more systematic oourse of study.
Several of the graduates are holding
important positions with some of the
mills of this section."

While* samples of President Lin
coln's skill as a story teller are in
numerable, instances of his personal
humor are comparatively rare.
On one occasion Lincoln, then poor
and obscure, was summoned as a wit
ness in a contested will case, the
plaintiffs "alleged that the testator
was of unsound mind.
Several of his neighbors testified
that while in the company of the de
ceased they had uever noticed any
thing strange in his actions of speech.
Lincoln's testimony was to the same
effect, and he was interrupted by the
opposing lawyer, a somewhat testy
and overbearing person, with the
remark: "Yes, yes; we have heard all
about that. Now, the question is
how did the deceased aot when alone?"
After a moment's reflection Linooln
replied: "As far as I can recollect, I
was never with him when ho was
