- Bobby's Bargain.
Henry and Bobby. ages eight
and ten respectively, were little
boys who thought and had tendcn
Cies. In colnsequence 0 which. at
times. they were a source of great
e'nbarrassment to their meer.
o'by, in particular, had the mon
eymaking propensity. 1 I e saved
his pennies religiously. and his eye
was keen for a bargain.
One evening at dinner their fath
er had as a guest a gentleman who
was a great horseman. The boys
listened for awhile, then I Bobby
opened fire with
"Say. .\lr. Smith. can you buy
a horse for a hundred dollars?"
"Yes. Bobby," Mr. Smith. "you
"Can you get one for fifty dol
"For twenty-five dollars
"For ten dollars ?
"For seven dollars?"
"Seven dollars. really? said
Boby, wondering. "Would the
horse be awfully fast?"
"Well," said Mr. Smith. smiling.,
"you would not be likely to get!
a Lou Dillon or a Dan Patch. but
the creature might be able to pull
Bobby thought for a moment;
- then, "But. Mr. Smith, could a
horse you paid seven dollars for
have a colt?"
"Possibly," said Mr. Smith.
"I have* seven dollars in the
bank." continued. Bobby; "I guess
I'll get a horse. For if a seven
dollar horse could have a colt, and
that colt have a colt, and that colt
Bobby's mother and father and
Mr. Smith became seriously inter
ested in the salad; the youthful
Henry began to fidget. the embryo
stock farm continued to grow
"and that colt have a colt, and that
colt have a colt, and that colt-"
Henry could stand it no longer.
Turning to Bobby, he remarked in
a tone of impatien,.:, "Say, as soon
as you think you have the worth of
your money would you mind pass

The Last Days of Bulab.
Beulah. a faithful dog owned by
Mr. John A. Davenport (or rather.
Mrs. John A. Davenport, as Beu
lah was her pet). was born in Oc
tober i888. and died January, 19o4.
Beulah was perhaps the oldest (log
of her kind in South Carolina. be
ing in the sixteenth rear of her age.
To the hunters of L.aurens. and
Newberrr counties the name of
Beulah was perhaps the most fa
miliar of all the na.mes of nioted
(logs that gave chase' a'fter the ia
mouse "Goldville Reds." She was
the most remarkable dog of - her
kind ever known to her master or
others that knewv her. She was one
of the best, truest and most reliable
fox dogs in the state. andl at the
early age of two y'ears was regard
ed by all-'hunters as a good and fast
dog. She was er,er ready at the
sound of her master's horn to join
in the chase, to the dlelight of all
the hunters, and was nearly always
the first dog to give wvarning to the
1munters that a chase wvas on hand.
and always the last dog to give up
persuit. Many times have the hopes
of success been given up. and dis
appointment plainiy seen in races
of hunters. when the soft. mnellowr
souind of Beulah's voice wras heard
and it would thrill every hunter'
heart with dlelight. Stately old
redl. wvho se bruches are in 1posse(s
ion of some hi'uter wo Ujd v et r an
among the hills of NCewherry and:
L aurens co unties hadl it n'ot been
for the faithful. p)ersistem. a:ni de
termtined efforts of Bleulah. On onle
occasion when .Mr. [Davenport and
some frien(ds wrere on a hunt and
had caught a magnificent old red
alive and had deprived him of his
brush, he wvas again set at liberty.
but soon the pack was let go, and
all followed the old red in hot pur
suit, and after a chase of some
thirty minutes they heard them
coming tow~ardl them and all stood
in breathless silence until somte mne
shouted. "There goes the fox and
he has a brush too., and sture
enough when the fox crossed the
road every one shouted. "Tail andl
fresh fox." The pack were in
close pursuit, but Mr. Davenport
remarked that Beulah did not come
back and he knew she was after the
fox that had been deprived of his
brush. *\'hile all the hunters fol
lowed the pack Mr. Davenport
waited for lIeulah. After a fine
chase the second fox was caught
and .\Ir. I)avenport and I1eulah
\ ere absent. A signal blow was
given. telling the "catch.- and to
the surprise of all MIr. Davenpirt
resp I(ed with the same signal.
andi when all met 1011hn and leulah
had the f, x. and John was as pr)iud
as a 7-year-old -boy with a' pair of
copL)er toed1 boots. Beulah was a
constant. faithful friend of Mrs.
Davenport, and certainly \ rs.
Davenport. thought there was nev
er a dog like Beulah. The last days
of Beulah were in comfort. and she
had every attention given her to
prolong life. Mr. Davenport had a
nice box arranged for her and she
was comfortably buried. There
certainly was never a more remark
able. more faithful or more valuable
dog than Beulah. Hunter.
P. S. Beulah treed a "Possum"
whe she was 14 years old.
