^ hlte Man Knocked Down by >'egro.
On Tuesday morning, on Mr. P. E.
Scott's place in Xo. 6 township, Mr. j
L. J. Hunt, the overseer, had a difficulty
with one of his farm hands, a j
negro by the name of Atkinson. Ix

negro to get out his hands and do

Hunt some impertinence and told him
he was his own boss and would go to
work when he got ready. Of course
/ this enraged the white man who told
the negro what he would do for him
if he didn't do as he said. Whereupon
the negro seized a hoe and struck j
Mr. Hunt, who threw up his right
arm and warded off the blow from his
head or body, receiving the lick on <
his arm. Mr. Hunt went into the
""""house for his gun, returning with it'
to the yard, prepared for the negro,
when the negro wi'ih desperate courage
again attacked the white man,
knocking him down with the hoe, and i
probably would have killed him but

The Annual Address.

Dr. D. D. Wallace of Wofford college
made this address on the subject,
Education for Citizenship, and
as a thoughtful presentation of a live
subject it commanded an attentive
hearing from the large gathering of
friends and patrons of the school.
Whereas, our dear Heavenly Father
in his infinite love and wisdom has
s?en fit to remove by death one we
loved so well, Mattie Epting Falls, we
bow in -humble submission to God's
divine will. She bore her afflictions
with patience. The parents have our
sympathy in their great bereavement.
A loved one from us has gone
iAj voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in her home
Which never can be filled.
Though cast down were not forsaken
Though afflicted not alone
Thou didst give and thou hast taken
Blessed Lord thy vill be done.
One who knew and loved Mattie.
SLEPT DURING BATTLE.
IVlien Massachusetts Yeteran Awoke
He Found His Regiment Had
The boys in blue in the civil war did
not always face th? enemy without
turning tail, thus illustrating the old
saying, "He who fights and runs away
will live to fight another day," and one
of the local veteran? tells a remarkable
story of his own experience in this
respect at the battle of Williamsburg |
? - 1000
on May o, loot.
Orders were given to advance early i
on the morning of May 5, and the army
reached a point before Williamsburg
at about 7 o'clock, Hooker's division
being directly in front of Ft. Magruder,
the principal fortress in the outer
line of Richmond's defense. The fort
was flanked by a line of redouble ex
?an-nciilQ frnrn thP
tending across tuc ^giimuuia ?
James river to York river. "The..
ground in front of the fort," says the
Springfield man, "w^s open and level,
but further to the front it was heavily
wooded. This timber had been slashed
down to impede the progress of the
Union iroops and Hooker's division
formed in line of battle in this fal
len timber and then advanced to the |
edge of the open ground within range j
of the enemy's artillery, but out of j
range of their musketry. Our artiil- j
ery was posted just beyond the edge j
of the timber anu opened fire with !
the infantry supporting it immediately
in the rear.
"Soon the enemy's shells were hurt
ling among the fallen timber, and we!
were ordered to lie down and cover
ourselves behind tree trunks as well
as we could. It thus happened that
only a general line was preserved, although
all were ready to fall in at a
moment's warning. I selected a particularly
large tree trunk for my cover,
some ten or fifteen yards in advance
of the general line, and behind this I
lay down, taking off my knapsack and
using it for a pillow. I was not ful- j
ly recovered from my wound of the
year before, and was exhausted from
the twenty-four hours duty and the !
long march with the heavy load, and |
after an hour or two I 1 sleep, al- I
though the battle was ragiLg.
"I never knew how long I slept, but j
it must have been an hour or two. !
When I awoke I stood up and looked
about me. The rain had ceased, and a j
heavy fog mingled with the smoke i
hung ove rthe field, but, curiously, it j
ovtonri tn thp around, and i

by stooping I could see under it. None j
of my regiment nor any other was in '
sight, but out in front about fifty yards j
off was the battery which we had been !
supporting, several guns dismounted, j
carriages and caissons wrecked and a j
great number of horses lying dead on
the ground. Scattered about among
the wreckage were about twenty men
with muskets in their hands and gray
"Now, my regiment and another
regiment in theNsam?? brigade were
wearing gray overcoats, and it never
occurred to me for a moment that the
men w-ere not of these two regiments.
So I shouted to them. "Do you belong
to the regiment?' and greatly to
my surprise their muskets went up to
their shoulders and they yelled, 'Come
in here, you Yankee.' As I have said
I was only three months out of Libby
prison,, and the only thing I thought of
was the dread of going back there, so
I grabbed my musket in one hand and
my, knapsack in the other and started
to run for the rear.

I would have run in a straight line, .
but in the timber I zigzagged about,
jumping o^er, crawling under or running
arour.d fallen logs, so that when
they fired at me not a bullet touched j
me. But I thought I heard a million '
of them about my ears. I was scared j
into a panic. I let go my knapsack, j
but hung to my musk-et, and with my
wet overcoat flapping about my lags
continued to run, utterly demoralized
and with only one thought?10 get
away. If the enemy had had breechloading
or magazine rifles they would
have fired again, and probably would
have got me. But as they were armed
with only muzzle loaders it took time j
to load again, and this was my salva- j
I did not realize- that I had got into \
a zone of safety and kept On:-a half j
mile more, when T ran into a line of
cavalry deployed in the "ar of our
line to drive up stragglers, of which

fallen out ..before, getting .to. the. front
and others .who .had skulked,.behind
and still others who had gone back to
help the wounded. It seems that the
battery which we had been supporting
had been put out. of action and that
the enemv had turned the flank of
Hooker's division, and my regiment j
and brigade had been hurried over to j
re-enforce the left, so that when I j
awoke I was alone.
"Officers of the cavalry had rallied
about 1,000 men, and after getting in+r?
on rm?n snare organized them into
a regiment under officers of the cavalry
and noncommissioned officers
the stragglers. An officer harrangued
them for a few minutes, instilling enthusiasm
into them, and then we went
forward to the battle line and there we
fought until darkness came and ended
the battle. I spent the greater part of
the night hunting about trying to find
my regiment, and it was nearly morning
when I discovered it If I had not
[discovered -this cavalry I would have'
run to the Atlantic coast."?Springfield
