The tracing of the man bY Sheriff
Buford and his final capture is an in
teresting story. Some time ago Sher
iff Buford received a letter from the
Bamberg authorities stating that a
negro had stolen a hor'se and buggy
at Montmorenei. and Sheriff Buford
was given a description of the team
and of the neyro who was uispicion

received a letter from the Bamberg
sheriff statinz that the wron. negro

to Falfa. traveling under the assum

located the negro, living in a house
with two other negroes near the house
of a negro named Sullivan, for whom
the man the sheriff was hunting was
working. The man the sheriff wanted,
Ulysees Mayes. had been having let

About tiree miles out from New

Right after breakfast we left for
the farm and on reaching there were
met by Mrs. Welch, the mother, who
kindly gave us a hearty welcome and
refreshing drinks, and then out we
went with Mr. Joe Wilbur to see and
admire the fine cows,. and beautiful
I am not well enough informned as
to farms to give any extended judg

look fine and well cultivated. The
dairy is well mounted with all the
modern improvements. The large
barIn is furnished with a ga-oli-ne en

food. large lattici windows keep all
lark and cool. and the entire build
in is illuminated with electricity,
and( though they are milking now
about twenty cows everything is kept
clean and inviting.
This is the time to visit the pond
to see the lotus plants. the beautiful
water-lily. As we went we passed by
where the Jersey bull. a fine animal.
is fastened by a ring in his nose to
tho running wire. As he pawed the
dirt and lifted his noble head to look
at us I could not help but look at that
little cord and wonder if it was resal
ly strong enough to hold him. When
we reached the pond great, immense
bull frogs, with a grunt of disappro
val of our presence, plunged into the
water while the blackbirds which
seem to have their nests among the
reeds flew away with notes of warn

in every direction. They are Egyp
tian lilies- whose ancestors no doubt
grew along the ba-nks of the Nile and
it may have been among such beauties
that Moses was hidden in ancient
times in bis little arc of. bulrushes.
It is worth a trip, to the friendly
nome of the Wilburs to see these
beautiful flowers. Mr. Joe Wilbur
without further ceremony waded out
into the pond and gathered for ma
some beauties whieh I brought home
and distributed to the delight of
friends and home folks.
Before returning we went down to
the nice modern home of Mr. Welch
Wilbur where we had the pleasure of
meeting the good lady of the h'ouse,
who, bright and cheerful as usual,
gave us a cordial welcome. Of course
she would, she was a Methodist and
just a few years a go we passed her
