""co'ii shnckln' " supplied the slaves of
Kentucky and Missouri especially with
ni) the Jollity they desired. It was an
Institution peculiar to the south, pecul
iar not in being confined to those sec
tions, but peculiar in the manner in
which it was conducted, for husking
bees have been known in New England
since the mind, of man remembers and
Indian corn has been gathered.
When a "co'n shuckln' " was decid
ed upon notices were sent out to the
-?laves of all adjoining plantations stat
ing that on a certain night Judge 8.
or Squire B. would givo a corn shuck
ing of so many thousand bushels and
that all colored people, male and fe
male, were Invited to attend. Great
preparations were made by "ole mas*
.na" and "ole missus" for this event
for, while they expected a good night's
"Work in the shape ct wagon loada of
yellow corn, pleasure was to be the
main part of the programme.
Supper waa always provided on a
large scale and generally consisted of
two or three roasted pigs, turkeys and
-chickens, with side dishes of vege
tables, in equal proportion. Bushels
.of sweet potatoes were baked, boiled
and fried, and hundreds of rich, golden
pumpkin pies were turned out of the
-ovens, done to a mouth watering
A band of musicians was engaged,
for no "co'n shuckln' " would be com
pleto without it On those nights ne
groes worked not .happily save to the
-twanging of the banjo and walling of
A corn shucking always lasted three
nights continuously on one plantation,
?sud i lie-n the negroes moved on. to the
next, whela di re o more were devoted
to the corn of the owne:, and so on
until all the maine of tho neighborhood
bad been husked.
About twilight the darkles began to
.arrive from all over thc country, the.
'"boys" clad in their suits of Jeans,
with that pride of the darky's heart
bia "long tailed clawhammer blue."
Every negro who made pretensions to
being "anybody" possessed one in more
.or less condition of wear.

of buskers from a neighboring planta

rived by the well known tupes preva

road and over the fields as the happy

to "clo massa" and begged a piece of
Silver money. , This was always ex

a's .soon bave thought of having a

prepared to produce the bit of silver

Taking this piece of silver, thc an

there performed a ceremony the exact

"Yes," said the former fiancee;
"he behaved all right about that,
but he-he carried nis money in a

me as being the limit. To my mind
there is only ono really manly way
for a maa to carry money, and that
is to throw it around loose in his
trousers pockets, GO that when he
wants a nickel he has to dig up
chango by the handful to get it.
For bills, of course, I can stand ono
of those flat leather pocketbooks.
They have a businesslike aspect and
do not detract from a man's dignity,
but to see a big, strapping fellow
who hos the appearance of a real
live man draw a dainty little purse
from his pocket and fish around for
a dime is too much, for me. In fact,
the man who does it seems almost
like a woman, and I couldn't marry
him. Can you blame me?"

Evana' Pharmacy G uarantee

Worst Case of Catarrh In An
When one of the most reputable
concerns in Anderson guarantees that

it by the aid of au inhaler that comes
in evory outfit and benefit will ba seen
from the first treatment.

and throat, or of the stomach, liver
and kidneys. Wherever mucous mem

Hyomei will do its work of healing.
