A Stylish Man.
General R. R. Hemphill, clerk
of the senate, writing to his paper,
the Abbeville Medium, says of Ser
geant-at-Arms J. .F. Schumpert,
who is a Newberry man:
The senate chamber was in excel
lent condition when the session
oDened. Sergeant at Arms Schum
pert caLue down some days before
the meeting and had everything in
good order. The beautiful carpet
looked fresh. The desks had been
brushed up and put in place. The
chairs and sofas had been looked
after. The uprights supporting
the galleries were painted anew and
touched with gilt to harmonize with
the picture frames on the walls.
The brass railings around the Pres
ident's stand and the galleries were
resplendent and the work was equal
to that of Sir. Joseph Porter K. C.
B., who "polished off the handle of
the big front door." Sergeant
Schumpert is a man of fine taste and
knows exactly what is necessary
about the Senate chamber and how
to put things in order. He has per
fect knowledge of all his duties, is
a very handsome man and dresses ih
A prominent truck farmer of the
South Carolina coast gives the fol
lowing directions for the cultivation
of cabbage2 for market:
Lands should be plowed deep.
harrowed and marked out in rows
two and a balf feet apart. A v'ery
necessary precaution is to throughly
ditch the land so that at no time
water will stand on it.
A liberal application of fertilizer
is necessary, say fifteen hundred
pounds to the acre. This fertilizer
should consist of a high grade fertil
izer, analyzing 8 per cent, ammonia
7 per cent, phosphoric acid and 5
per cent potash. It is applied in the
marks laid off for the rows and a
scooter or bulltongue plow run
thrpugh it, so as to thoroughly mix
it with the soil. Two furrows are
then thrown together to make a
medium sized bed, which is then
rolled, to firm the ground, and
plants set out on the rows eighteen
to twenty inches apart. As soon
as the plaats are started growing,
the field is harrowed with an iron
age harrow and dressing of five
hundred.tounds of fertilizer to the
acre is a lied in every other row,
followed with a subsoil or some
other plow which will thoroughly
break the beds until you can see the
cracks extending icross the same.
In about ten days the other furrow
is treated in exactly the same way.
After that the land is kept. open by
constant work using a plow, harrow,
-cultivator or some like tool that
will not break the soil deeper than
two inches. Cultivation should oc
cur every week or ten days until
the cabbages are headed, or the
foliage completely covers the
ground. Under ordinary conditions
crops worked in this way yield an
average of one hundred crates of
cabbages per acre.

THE GOOD OLD CLOCK.
Ita Mellow, Friendly Tick an Anti
dote For Lonemomeness.
"Give me the clock for company,"
iaid the observant man. "and you may
iiave all the balanet of the inanimate
th-igs under the siu, or over it. and I
vill throw a few of the animals in for
good measure. I vau conceive of noth
in, nore friendly, more inpeakably

;a. .:ugh all the changes and
of timne. down to the present.
(;,her seunds may fall and deepen into
the sadder silence of the night's heavy
stillness, but the old clock continues to
mark the flight of time, and no second
may escape without hearing its passing
called out drea:ily by the faithful
clock whose hands halve measured al
ready so many days-some bright and
full of light and life and promise and
sweet bodings of the future and others
echoing back sepulchrally from the
years already counted. Ah, the clock!
But give me the clock with its ticking
all through the night, and Its silvery
chiming on the hour. and you may have
the other things, and the dog to boot.
I'll take the clock in mine every time
wh,n it comes to keeping off that feel
ing of lonesomeness which creeps upon
us now and then." - New Orleans
NUMBER ON PAPER MONEY.
How to Tell Without Seeing the Fig
ure4 if It Is.Odd or Even.
"If any one comes up to you and
wants to bet you that he can tell
whether the number of any of Uncle
Sam's paper money is odd or even by
looking at that part of the bill on which
the number does not appear. shun him
as you would the plague." said a guest
at the Hotel McKay the other night
"Why? . What is the joke?" asked
"Only this." replied the first: "I was
out this afternoon with a nuz.:ber of
men with whom I have business deal
Ings. We ate lunch, and then one man
wanted to bet me that he could call
the even or odd on the number of any
bill I had, the loser to pay for the
lunch. I took a wil from my pocket,
folded -t so that the number did not
show, and after he had looked at It he
"It was even. Soon afterward I got
stuck for the cigai's the same way.
After I had been done four or five times
they explained to me that all of the
bills marked 'A' and 'C' were odd. while
those marked 'B' and 'D' were even.
It cost about $ to find it out, but I
guess it was a good investment at that.
It is the same on all bills. Be careful
when attempting to do the work not to
take the series letter in front of the
number, but hunt for a small letter on
the left hand side of the bill."-Duluth

The poet was put in a low necked car
riage with a reception committet. and,
headed by the band, a procession was
formed of citizens, and they paraded
the business streets. A very old man
leaned up against the Gymond House,
a hotel of Riley's day, and as the car
riage passed he squinted one eye and
out of the opposite corner of his mouth
said. "I've seen the time in this here
