Cbriotmas at Due We
l??jor J. 0. Homphill, Editor of Tha P
Whenil >vus a boy there was only
one Episcopalian living at Due West.
All of hi a family were Seoeders, and,
except when he went at rare intervals
to Abbeville Court House to attend
the aervioesj at Trinity Church on the
most solemn days in the oalendsr, he
worshipped in the village meeting
house. There was only one Baptist
and two families of Jews, the strait
est of tbeir'eect, then living* at Due
West. There were not more than half
a dozen Human Catholics in the coun
ty, and it is' doubtful if one of that
faith had ever visited so unusual a
community. The celebration of Christ
mas at Due West wss in no sense of a
religious character, but was a season
of good cheer, of the giving of gifts,
of merry-making in a primitive but
entirely natural way.
It was plain Matthew, Mark, Luke,
John, and Paul, and not St. Matthew,
St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John and St.
Paul. It was ''the Gospel according
to Matthew," and not "the holy Gos
pel." It would have been as natural
to speak of St. Moses as of St. Mark,
of St. Jeremiah as of St. John. The
only Siiint known in the community
was Santa Clans, and even he was not
regarded as worthy 'of auy sort of
adoration or worship, but oxAy as a
convenient, if somewhat heterodox,
messenger of that goodwill which the
Almighty manifests to all His - chil
dren in all His w?rkB of providence
and graoe. The whole temper of the
community was against the obsorvr.noo
of the'eeason in a religious way, not
because its people were unmindful of
their duty and obligations, but be
cause they and their teachers enter
tained a wholesome if exaggerated,
idea of the wioked tendencies of saint
worship,' and holy days. Christmas in
Due West was not, therefore, a reli
gious festival when I was a boy, in
name at least, although I am suro
that it was in~ spirit. There have
been many changes doubtless in the
last 30 or 40 or 50 years, but when I
asked Ralph Grier the other day if
Christmas is now regarded as a re
ligious season in Due West he an
swered; "No, religious services are
never held there on/Christmas day
unless it falls on the Sabbath."
But now, as aforetime, there io ?
receBB in tho college exeroiees, and a
"swarray" at the Female College dur
ing Christmas week, and a turkey din
ner, and fresh sausages, and the ex
changing of gifts; and dances in the
oountry roundabout, and possibly an
inoursion of inebriated individuals
from Hbgskin and the Nation. ,
When I was a boy, if the weather
was cold . enough, Christmas pame
about hog-killing time, and there was
always an abundance of good thine?
io eat. The family prayers were the
same, morning and evening*- us on
other days, and every other day,
throughout the year; but the coming
of the mythical saint with his sleigh
and reindeer, the loading of the stock
ings : with trompete and drums and
dainties thai were good to eat, the
giving of gifts that nobody wanted,
the ohase of fox and rabbit, and "the
slaughter of birds; the holding of
Ohristmas tree festivals in some con
venient place for the yosr-g aa? old
people c? th* town wera much th?
S?uio then as tney aw now. It was
somewhat difficult, probably, to avoid
presumptuous sin even so many years
ago, hut the people of Due "West came
very near doing the right thing, and
drew the line in a very ; uncompromis
ing way between what is required and
what ia forbidden in the command
ments, Sovie of us who have gotten

and fondest ambition was to bo a hog

with what excitement the whole com

came that a drove of Tennessee or
Kentucky hogs were on the way from
Donaldsville, and with what enthu
siasm the grand men were hailed as
with their "ho-ho-ho" they cracked
their lougo whips in the air and drove
their squealing, grunting victims down
to Hawthorne's lot for sale and sacri

red hot stones, aod the blowing up of
the bladders, aad the souse aod the
sausage, and the cracklings are only
a memory in thoso advanced times
of the stookysrd and the combination
But as I have said, there were
Christmas trees in those days, and
even some of the <(uaoo guid" were
not averse to "a wee drappio" just for
the sake of being neighborly
liberal minded. Tho men of Due
West,, however, were noted then, as
they doubtless are now, for their tem
perance in all things, and the women
for their self'-effaoecient. The spirit
of sacrifice was tho spirit of the com-,
munity, and the general disposition
of the people was to sharo and share
alike in whatever good or evil fortune
came about. "The Due West Teles-,
nopo" was the church and village
newspaper. In it the peoplo were ad
vised of wh,at was going on 5a tho out
side world, and there was no subject
from psalmody to slavery and seces
sion which was not discussed in its
columns. .There was not a great deal
of visiting in the. community, and
there was little idle gossip, but there
was always the best of feeling among
the neighbors, . Quilting parties were
not unusual among the elders, and the
boys and girls managed aoraebow, as
they bave always done everywhere, to
maintain frieudly relations. There
i was much generous and harmless
rivalry amoog the housekeepers in do
I meBtio matters, and it was generally
ooooeded that there was nothing bet
ter than Mrs. Pressly'o molasses pies,
Mrs. Grier's cev?-pone, Mrs. Young's
quince' pr?serves, Joe Darlington's
, mother's candy and 'confections, and
my mother's beaten biscuit. It was a
wholesome, atmosjlere .?in 'whioh to

phemian hall on the second floor of
the college building, and that the
special piize whioh had been placed
on tho tree "for the noisest boy in

parently tie; unanimous consent of
the judgeB, awarded to me. There
wero gifts on the tree for everybody
and everybody wes happy until some

When I was a boy the joys of the
Ohristmas tirao were inuoh affected
by tbe terrible excitement of war and
the sorrow which filled every heart
beoauso of those who would return
homo no more Thero was crops 'on
nearly every door in Duo West, and
while thoso who were hft behind
wont about their accustomed work and
strove with all the loyalty of their
hearts to help tbo cause of truth and
tight, the dread of some impending
evil was ever present with them, and
with the little folk who were too
young to be killed. The day that
Livy Grier and Poinsctt Lindsay and
Enoch Pruitt -were all buried, one
after tho other, in the ohurohyard at
Due West will never bo forgotten by
the boys and girls of that period.
They did not understand, exactly what
it meant, perhaps, but they knew that
these men had died fighting for thorn
and their country. Most of the talk
of that time was about the god of war
and not about^the Prince of Peace,
and it was only natural that in the
celebration of tho holiday season
there should not have existed that
unoonfined joy whioh iaVharaoteristio
of happier times.

"Yea, two weeks from today will be

Mrs. Cummings was now tfc aroughly
puzzled at tho old darky\a request,
and wondered what it all could mean.
She knew none of Ned's "set" could
afford to pay for a vault and. how
could, they be making arrangements
for a funeral two weeks hence, with
the prospective corpse still alive.
The thought mcde her shiver.
"Well'm, dat de day," said Ned.

Genealogy of the Anderson Family.
The Greenwood Journal has been re
quested to publish the following facts
relating to the ancestry of General
Robert Anderson and Capt. James
Anderson, two brothers who removed
from Augusta county, Virginia, to
Tho former, Gen. Robert Anderson,
went several years prior to the Revo
lutionary War. Ho was an jifioer in
that war, serving under General Piok
ens in South Carolina and Georgia.
His brother, Capt. Jaraes Anderson,
sorved throughout the Revolution
with the Virginia troops. He was
captain of a company from Augusta
county, Virginia, and removed to
South Carolina in 1786 or 1787.
Their father, John Andersou, lived
about six miles northeast of Staunt-jn,
Augusta county, Virginia, within two
miles of the historio OldSlono church,
Presbyterian. Ho was ono of its tiret
elders and in that ehurch his children
were baptized in infancy. According
to tho ohuroh record Robert was Bap

Says the oourt record of Augusta
county, made at Staunton in 1740:

and thenoe on to tho neighborhood of
Staunton in 1740, bringing their three
children, Esther, Mary, Margaret, and
entering 50 acres of land for each of

was constituted about the year 1740,
and John Anderson was a member of
the first commissioners' oourt of the

?Modern Medical Musings.
* Tkot now idea of a musical matorla
medioa is growing, says the Now
York American and Journal. Tho City
hospital authorities of Atlantic City
have fallen in with tho notions of the
eminent Brooklyn physician who a few
weeks ago broke tho news to n world
of waiting patients that soothing po
tions hereafter must glvo place to
Quinine in nil Its bitterness is to be
swept away before a gule of sonorous
sonatas. Ill tusting tonics are to be
battered down by the stirring strains
of marches. Annoying anaesthetics
must glvo way to plaintive, droning
melodies, which bring drowsiness and
forgetfulnoss to wakeful eyes. Fuu
gent paregoric is to be banished from
the nursery for "Mother Gooso" tunes
in modern vein.
The Brooklyn physician conducted
his experiments with a self playing pi
ano. Sprightly tunes, he found, quick
ened sluggish pulses, while melodies,
soft and low, soothed temples throb
bing with fever. Atlantic City has
gone into the musical cure on a more
lavish scale. A hospital orchestra baa
boon formed, and now while the pa
tient listens to the strains of rhythmic
waltzes his Ills disappear In the dying
tones of the melody.
Moving about from room to room the
strange medical orchestra fits its tunes
to tho ailments of the sick, cheering
tho melancholy and quieting the J??ip
lng nerves of the excited. The hospital
physicians are delighted with the suc
cess of their musicul treatment so far
and declare tho new field one of tho
most promising opened up in many

FREE LEGAL ADVICE.
Former Cleveland Jtidsrc Will Aid
Lltlcanta Unable lo Hire Counsel,
Judge A. B. Dissette of Cleveland,
O., intends to devote tho rest of his
life to furnishing legal aid to those in
need and unable to retain counsel, says
a dispatch from Cleveland. Tho
Judge's term on the common pleas
bench expired a few days ago. He is
weil past middle life, but his health is
excellent, and every indication points
to his having many years in which to
practice his unique charity.*'
"Ten years on tho bench have shown
me the need of Just such practical
philanthropy," said the Judge. "When
a rich man goes to court he has tho
ablest legal counsel to care for his in
terests. Bnt when a poor man is
forced to ask the courts for his rights
very often those rights must be forced
from the reluctant wealthy. In this
case the poor man is at a disadvantage.
"The poor man is often compelled to
submit to wrongs because he has not
the means to seek redress in the courts.
He is unable to hire a lawyer. From
now on i am going to help persons in
that condition. I know that in a cer
tain class of coses competent legal
counsel can be secured by means of
contingent fees. But there are many
canes involving rights where thero is
no possibility of tbe necessary money
being earned In the form of a verdict.
"I don't know of any more crying
need than that,'' concluded the Judge.
"To help the man who is in trouble by
giving him the benefit of free legal
services?I know of no other better
way that a lawyer can do good."
