Thc Laurens correspondent of thc
Charleston Sunday Nows furnishes
this inten sting story of the past:
In t'urearly fifties a young lawyer
just admitted to practice was employ
ed to defend a white man charged
with stealing a bushel of oats from a
rich planter. The whipping post was
the punishment for such ol?cnses and
there was no alternative penalty. The
proof was plain and the young law
yer's bumble client was promptly con
victed. When the verdict was au
nouced the solicitor came to thc attor
ney and whispered: "li-, it will
never do for that white man to be
"Well, what's to be done about it?"
said the lawyer.
"I'll arrange it," tho solicitor re
plied. A brief consultation ensued
between the solicitor, the prosecuting
witness, the Judge and the sheriff.
Then the solicitor came badi to the
lawyer. "Explain to your client that
if he will break from the sherill' and
never stop running lill he crosses the
Savannah Uiver ami never cross back
again, he will not be pursued. Tho
State will be satisfied if th?' man leaves
the country. As tho sheriff takes him
to jail from the court house let him
lag behind; the sheriff will walk 20
feet in front. When they reach thc
corner of the alley leading to thc jail
ho must run and never look back.
There will be a mock chase, but ali
your man need do is to run."
The young lawyer explained thc
programme to thc convict, who stolid
ly assented. When the sheriff took
him awny the lawyer went out on the
court house steps to see the fun. The
sheriff, as promised, walked ahead of
tho prisoner without looking back.
They approached the alley-corner.
Tho sheriff passed it. Tho convict
reached it and, with eyes to the front
marched deliberately behind the
sheriff into the jail. In duo time he
took his threshing and went home.
Ile preferred it to leaving Laurens
County. A curious sequel, though, is
that he did later go to another State

The editor of Thc Mountaineer, who
was then a boy and a resident of Lau
rens, remembers this incident very
distinctly, as this was tho only white
man he ever saw punished at the
whipping post, which in this instance
was a tree that stood on tho Houth side
of thc court house and Bhaded the
sheriff's office. Mr. Oswald Richard
son was the sheriff, ono of the kindest
hearted men that eve." lived in Lau
rens, and like tho solicitor he did not
want to see a white man publicly
whipped, much less to inflict the pun
ishment himself. The boys of the
villago gathered around in much awo
at the proceeding, and the sheriff ap
plied the lash thirty-nine times to
thc back of the culprit, but it was
said at tho time that he was well able
to hit harder licks if tho law had ve

handsome young man, and he walked
away with a linn step to his humble
country home, where he tarried only
long enough to bid good-bye to his

other, and both were thinking of the
sorrowful incident at Laurens, though
never a word passed between us in
reference to it. Wc saw him often in
the years following upon the public
square at Anderson, selling twenty or
thirty bales of cotton at a time, hauled

And the potuto disease acted in
two distinct ways on history. It had
an immediato effect in helping the re
peal of the corn laws and throwing the
country open to free trade.
In thc second place, it had a great
and unforeseen effect on another con
tinent, for there then started a stream
of emigrants across thc Atlantic which
has steadily continued.
At the beginning of the seventeenth
century the English and the Dutch
were rivals for tho possession of a cer
tain little island, Amboyna, iu thc
East Indies, because of the cloves
that grew upon it. At this date the
production of cloves was extremely
limited, and finally tho Dutch mas
sacred a small English colony estab
lished there. This aroused the bitter
feeling in England against the Dutch
and, as a great historian tells us, fur
nished a popular way for two wars.
A sudden passion for tulips turned
thc heads of the usually placid Dutch
men in the seventeenth century, and
the tulipomania is a well recognized
event in Dutch domestio history.
It was a time when the desire to pos
sess an uncommon tulip was sufficient
to drive men to most extremo lengths
of speculation, to cause the ruin of
noble houses and to carry whole fami
lies to misery. In fact, so adute did
the rage become that the Dutoh Gov
ernment was obliged to step in with a
heavy hand and by stringent measures
allay this fever of the tulip.

M. Bloulct tells this story illustrat
ing thc evils of strong drink: A
young New Yorker of good family and
good social position had a great fond
ness for drink. His family and his
friends had done almost everything to
break him of the habit, with no suc
cess. A friend suggested they try
and give him a severe shock. AB a
means to this end they procured a
collin, and the next time he came
home under the influence thcyt dressed
him like a corpse, put him in the
collin, darkened the room, but placed
a few lighted candles around tho coffin
and left the friend to watch him.

greatly puzzled by thc surroundings,

the room, he remarked:

Inconstant Waters of the Mississippi.
There is little reason, however, for
a settlement in these parts to bestir
itself. Its futuro is too uncertain.
The town that is on the river this
year may be on a useless swamp thc
next; the town that is five miles in
land, with no dream of thc Mississippi,
may bo awakened any morning by the
roar of a steamboat whistle. There
are many points in desperate straits
to-day. Tiptonville, Tenn., a town of

service, once on tho main channel,
now finds herself, because of a cutoff,
on a shallow backwater which goes dry

Which brings mc again to the riv
er's vagaries. To begin, its crooked
ness if something appalling. Ap
proaching Cairo from tho north by
boat, the stranger, seeing the city's
elevators and church-spires within a
stone's throw, is pretty certain to rush
into thc cabin to assemble the belong
ings when he has still before him a
tortuous ride of two hours. Y'ct this
phenomenon is not wholly without ad
vantages. The citizen of before-men
tioned Tiptonville who misses thc up
bound boat at breakfast time does not
worry over the acoident. Ho calmly
spends tho morning at home, then,
after dinner, trudges four'or five miles
across oountry to Slough Landing, ar
riving there in plenty of time-likely
with an hour or two to spare-to oatoh

When Mago recovered, he made a

and to pay Mago five hundred dollars

Grafting Pecans on Hickory.
Our Chester correspondent reports
Mr. H. T. Boyd, of Cornwell, Chester
county, is taking much interest in
pecans, and adds: "Ile is making the
experiment of grafting pecans on
hickory sprouts. His success this
year is encouraging. Some of his
grafts have made a growth of five feet,
while seedings have done little more
than get above ground.
Mr. Boyd's success should make
many imitators for his plan. Hickory
trees and sprouts abound in the State.
It ought to be good business for any
landowner to graft many such trees
from the more valuable variety. Mr.
Lege, of Green Pond, reported recent
ly that bc is selling pecans from his
tine tree at a dollar a pound. A far
mer iu Yirginia writes to The South
ern Planter that he has two old trees,
tvhich he values at $1,000 a piece, as
the annual revenue derived from them
is a fair rate of interest on that sum.
Few hickory trees-, or their fruit,
are worth as much, to begiu with, and
it is something besides to have pecan
trees grow at the rate of five feet a
year instead of a few inches. The
grafts, we believe, should bear in
three or four years, while seedling pe
cans do not. Moreover, as Mr. Lege
has stated, pecan stock is subject to
'he destructive attacks of "borers."
Hickory stock with pecan grafts,
should be proof to suoh attacks. Mr.
Boyd's success with his experimental
venture is instructive as well as "en
couraging," and may profit many far
mers who can take a hint quickly.
