IN SPITE Or DOCTOR'S
ORDER, THEY MARRIED.
Columbia, March 12.-A charming
little romance was developed this
morning by a marriage at 10 o'clock
at the First Presbyterian church. The
4ontracting parties were Miss Nellie
Frank Bushe, of New York city, and
Mr. William Starr Bostwick, of Read
ing, Pa. They were to have been mar
ried in New York today. Invitations
for the wedding there had been issued,
but they had to be cancelled as Miss
Bushe's doctor would not permit her
to retuin North at this time. Shortly
before Christmas she was attacked
with bronchial troubles, upon the ad
vice of her physicians she came
south to get the benefit of a milder
elimate. She went to Southern Pines.
N.;C., and spent seven weeks there.
Recently she eame to Columbia and
has been staying at the McKenzie
House. She is a most charming
young lady and has made a number of
friends during her short stay in this
city. Mr. Bostwick quickly cancelled
tbe invitations for the New York
wedding but was determined there
shpuld be no postpon,ment of the
wedding day, but simply that the cer
emony should be performed. in Co
lumbia instead of in New York. He
came to Columbia and made arrange
ments for the wedding to occur here.
In the presence of the friends Miss
Biishe had made at the McKenzie
House, the ceremohy was performed
at the' First Presbyterian church, the
Rev. S. M. Smith, officiating. The
bride wore a handsome gray traveling
AN EDITOR'S APPEAL
To Brother Publishers In Behalf Of
The Lost Child of Dr. Byers
of Seeleyville, Ind.
If the editor of .every paper in the
eentral west will republish these lines
there is no question but -what Dr. S.
L. Byers of Seeleyville, Ind., will ru
cover his little son who was stolen
from his home one year ago last May.
Dr. Byers has spept his entire re
soui-ces in search for his child and
unless .the big -hear-ted members of
the press come to his assistance his
-son will grow up an outlaw and an
outeast among the lowest .people ;of
the. earth. It is a cause that-should
appeal' to- everyone. and no father
reading these lines can do so without
a quiekenixg of the heart and a sym
pathetie throb. It- is: believed that
if this article is re-printed .in, the
newspapers it. will form an endless
ehain that will tineover the lost boy's
eoneealment and return him to his
distracted parents. In doing this
the profession of journalism will be
fulfilling one of its highest destinies.
. Publishers whose circulations touch
the Wabash, Ohio and .Mississippi
vallejs are especially requested to
reproduce this story of the lost child
a\s. Dr. Byers believes his boy is now
on some houseboat waiting to take
the road in the springy There .is a
reward of $500, awaiting any infor
mation that will lead to the -boy 's re
covery. No questions will be asked
and if the abductor himself would de
iver the boy to his parents he would
not be molested. The bereaved par
ints are heart broken with grief and
want only their child. If each jour
nal will reprint these lines, they will
trav'el to~ every exchange table in the
United States and bring back to a
wretehed home a'child who is now no
doubt suffering with cold, unfed and
- wretched to a degree. Think of what
your own . feelings would be under
similar circumstances! This appeal
is indicted originally by a publisher
who saw Dr. Byers only once, has no
personal interest in his quest other
than the bond of sympathy that makes
the world akin, and is inspired from
the belief that the lost boy can only
be found through the united efforts
of t4ie country press 'of which he is
proud to be a member. His recovery
will be a triumph in advertising~ and
no editor whose heart is placed right
will refuse this appeal. Remember,
it may be your. child next!
The following is a descriptio n of
the lost boy:
Richmond Byers, if alive was o
years old last July, is of light com
lexion, has gray eyes, left eye notici
bly crossed, has a small V shaped niek
in the edge of the left ear, has a sharp
chin and a n:row, projecting fore
head. He is rather small for his ag~e
and i.: unu.sually bright and inteii
gent, talking after the manner of a
~bov much older.
I)r. Byers has searched among the
ri.ving bands that frequent the Uni
teal States and believes that his son
can be found among traveling junk
dealers. so called horse traders or
movers. He do0es not think the boy
was stolen by genuine gypsies. He
thinks he was taken by a wandering
band that uklJ him for the purpose
of beggino' in the towns along the

The foes of Senator Tillman and
the anti-dispensaryites over the State
are becoming more and more perplex
led in the selection froim their forces
of a man who would stand a show at
beating the senator in his race next
fall. Already a number of probable
eandidates have been spoken of. and
at least tw h)ave intinated a willing
nessz to run. such 1110intation being
s andwielhed, however.. with the usual

B. Cromer. of Newberry. The writer
knows little of Mr. Cromer's past po
I litical career, if le has any. but learns
I that he is one of the champions of the
force engaged in the present fight
against Senator Tillman. He would,
perhaps, make a fairly good. start in
the race, and, with the aid of an ex
tra long-sighted microscope, get in
near enough to see the hoisting.of the
wool-hat colors at. the finish.
Then, on the list of probables is
Mr. E. D. Smith, the popular presi
dent of the South Carolina Cotton
association. Mr. Smith has not yet
signified his intention of entering the
race, and. it is not believed that he
will, f6r such a step would pot only
mean overwhelming defeat for him,
but a sacrifice of the=popularity which
he now enjoys as president of an as
sociation in which Senator Tillman's
supporters are numbered high up in
Last, and perhaps least, so far as
I his chances of winning are concern
ed, is the Hon. John L. McLaurin
"Curly-Headed Johimny''-who, as
everyone believed, was snugly tucked
away in the political death-robe by
Senator Tillman a.. few vears ago.
Mr. MeLaurin, according to reports,
expresses a willinfness to enter the
race, provided a.suflecient number de
sire that he should. This nmnber he
will pr-obably place at a figure so -high
as to give him ample room to discard
the proposition It is safe to add,
however, that should the former sena
tor decide to take 'a snatch at Till
man's scalp, he would do so from the
blind side, and when it was all over
would discover that he hadn't even
'touched a hair.
The News and 'Observer has this to
say 'regarding the Atand taken by
"The world respects an honest par
tisan, even if he is frank to bluntness.
Senator Tillman is respected more
than every democrat in America who
has 'genu-fiected' in Washington to
get White House favor.''
We are eonstrained to agree with
Editor Daniels in the above. It is
eternally true that the world has lit
tle use for the mealy-mouthed favor
seeker. It is equally true that the
world still holds at a high premium
sincerity and honesty. even if it be
clothed in a garb, uncouth and des
titute of polish and gloss.
Senator Tillman has been abused.
All manner of evil and harsh things
have been showered upon him, which
concerned him little. No doubt he
makes blunders. Who does not?
There is however, an umassumed
frankness and a candid honesty about
the senior Senator from South Car'o
lina that carries with it force and con
Senator Tillman 's re.cent stand on
some of the most important bills un

respect and admiration,. not only of
the people, but of his erstwhile enemy,

and the position Senator Tillman no;"

is one justly deserved.
Sources of Our Unela~ Reniide
Though Joel Chaidler Harris' Un
le Remus stories except of Iuihmia
egeds, are as near American folk
lore as our literature will produce,
they are, so to speak, American only
t second hand. Facts seem to indi
ate their having been imported with
the negroes from somewhere on the
west coast of Africa. In their main
ubstance of character and incident
these stories are to be found in many
other countries where slaves have
been held, though nowhere have they
had the sympathetic retelling that Mr.
Harris has given themr for us. They
are part of the stock of 'the negro
sorv-tel!rs in the West Indies and
frica. and iney are told in the jaboo
of te gol c-+% the FK.h patois of
Marinque. and the mixed Dutch of
Curacao. I ii each country the partic
ular native animals are drafted into
the tales. In the West Indies there
are no rabbits. foxes or wolves, but
there is Brer Spider. Brer Hawk, Sis
Ground Dove, etc. The eunning spi
der called Annancy, has the role of
Brer Rabbit, with adventures just as
droll. The story of how Annancy,
disliking Brer John Crow and his,
family for being so curious, taught
John Crow a lesson by scalding..the
feathers off his head and making him
and his race bald forever, is one of
a number of West Tndian tales that
would make nighty' good material
for Mr. Harris.

"You say." I remarked to the old

"You know the story then about
the cherry tree and the hatchet?"
"Know it? Why, I was dar on the
spot. I seen Mossa George climbe de
tree atter de cherries, and I seen him
fling the hatchet at the boys who was
a stonin' him. I done chase dem boys
off de place meself.
"Do vou remember his appearance
as a man? What he looked like?'
Yes, indeedy. He was a kinder
short, ehunky man; sorter fat and
hearty-lookin'. He had chin whiskers
and mustache and spectacles. Mos'
generally he wore a high hat; but I'se
seed him in a fur cap wid ear-warm
"You were not with him, of c6urse,
when he crossed the Deleware river?"
"Wid him? Yes, sir; I was right
dar. I was not more'n two feet off'n
him as he druv across de bridge in
his buggy! Dat's a fac'. I walked
'longside de off hind wheel of dat
buggy all de way."
''Y6u saw him when he fought the
British at Trenton?"
" Sho's you're born I did! I held
Mossa Gawge 's coat an' hat while he
fought the British at dat werry place.
Mossa' Gawge clinched him and den
dey rassled and. rassled, and at first
he freiv Gawge, and den Mossa Gawge
flung ,him, and set on him ana done
hammered him till he cried 'nuff!
Mossa Gawge won dat fight. I seed
him wid me own eyes! An' I come
home wid him in de kyars!"'
"You weren't with him wheri he
shot the apple off the boy's head? '.
''Who wa'n't wid him? I wa'n't?
I -was the only pusson dar 'eeptin'
one white man. I loaded. Mossa
Gawge 's revolver and han 'ed it to
hinm, and picked up de apple an' et
its -on as he'd knocked it off. No
body can 't tell dis yer ole niggah
nuffin' 'bout dat circumstance.''
''You know all of the general's re
lations, too, I suppose ? Martin Luth
er, and Peter the Hermit, and the
''Knowed urn all. Many and ma:ny's
de time I done waited on de table
when Mossa Gawge had urn to dinner.
I remember dem two gemmen jes' 's
if I 'd seen urn yesterday. Yes, sah;
an' I druv 'em out often!''
''I've frequently seen pictures of
Washington in which he is represent
ed sitting upon a whit horse. Did
he really ride aw hit horse, or don't
you recall the color of his horse?"
"Why bless your soul; 'call de
color ob die hoss '-call de color of it i
Do you see dis yer nigh hoss dat I'm
driving now? Well, dat's de werry'
hoss Mossa Gawge used to ride. He'
lef' it to me in his will!''
Just then we reached the station,
andl I dismounted from the'hack and
paid Washington 's body-servant for
his service. No doubt a longer con
versation with him would have re
ealed other startling facts relating
to the Father of His Country.
