Remarkable Tribute to York >"egro.
Hannibal Beatty, the old negro,
whose death was recorded in the last
issue of the Enquirer, was buried from
the Associate Reformed cLurc'a last
Saturday afternoon, in accordance
F with his previously expressed wish,
and his funeral in some respects was
/the most remarkable that has ever
been given to a negro in Yorkville or
South Carolina, if not in the Soutfo.
Tl.e services were conducted by the
Rev. J; L. Oakes, pastor of the Associate
Reformed church, of which Han
nibal had been the fait'aful servant for
for many years, assisted by the Rev.
N. S. Smith, pastor of the colored
MetJ:odist church, of which the deceased
was a member. The attendance
included about 400 people, whites and
black in about equal numbers, and was
about as thoroughly representative a
gathering as has ever been seen in
Yorkville on a funeral occasion. Officers
of the church, the county and
members of t!:e bar acted as pallbearers.
Tiere were numerous floral tributes
from bot!'a white and colored, and
whites joined the negroes in laying
' the body away in the grave.
The sole significance of this unusual
tribute to a negro was the compelling
power of character, wort):,
faithfulness, as exemplified in a long

was probably the best known
negro in York county. He was born
FULL OF YEARS A\D H030K
a master and mistress who were the
best products of ante bellum civilization,
and who had no children of their
own. He was humble, courteous, alert,
intelligent and obliging, and if 'be ever
intentionally gave offence to whites or
blacks, the circumstance is not of rec
ord. He passed tnrougn periods 01 intense
racial friction, without ever incurring
the suspicion of ill will of
either wlhites or blacks, and so far as
is known has never been absent from
his post of duty except by reason of

i Of all the love affairs in the wor:d,
none can surpass the true lo.e of a
big boy for his mother. It is pure and
r.nblp honorable to the highest degree
ill both. We di not mean merely a
dutiful affection. We mean a love that
makes a boy gallant and courteous to
his mother, saying to everybody plainly
that he is fairly in love with her.
Next to t.ie love of a husband, nothing
so crowns a woman's life wit.:: honor
as this second love, this devotion of a
son to her. We never yet knew a boy
to turn cut bad who began by falling
in love with his mother. Any man
may fall in love with a fres':1.-faced girl,
and the man wi_o is gallant with the
girl may cruelly neglect his worn and
weary wife, but the boy wao is a lover
/-?f Viic mnfhor in ;pr middle is a
i true knight, who will love his wife as
mucin in her sere-leafed autumn as he
did in the daisied springtime.

PLANETS AND OUR WEATHER.
Despite Popular Belief There Is No
connection oeiween i nem.
That the planets and the moon have
an effect upon the weather on the
earth is a common belief. This belief
is baseless, for all changes of weather
depend upon differences in temperature.
Rainfall is due to the accumulation
of water in tbe atmosphere. This water
can accumulate only by being evaporated
from the surface of the earth.
And evaporation requires heat. Winds
also are due to heat?greater warmth
in one place than in another causing
the air to rush toward where the warm
air is rising.
If the moon and the planets could
furnish heat they might affect the
weather. But the heat they furnish is
so infinitesimally small that it is not
enough to change the temperature an
appreciable fraction of a degree. The
amount of beat they send us has actu
ally been measured, but it needed t?he
most delicately sensitive of instruments
to perceive it.
Another proof that neither the planets
nor the moon have any effect upon
our weather is that careful comparisons
of the weather with the positions
of the planets and the moon show that
there is no relation between them. If
there 'were we should have the same
weather when the planets were in th<i
snme nositlon. which is not the case.

Japan's Good Roads.
Japan is peculiarly well off in respect
of good highways. The Tokaido.
which runs from Kioto to Tokyo.' Is
over 300 miles in length and. as the
writer can testify, is admirably con
structed. There is also the Nakasendo.
which . is even longer and passes
through some of the finest scenery in
the world. The reason of' Japan's excellence
in the matter of roads is that
in the old days, not so very long ago,
the daimios, or territorial nobles, had
to journey to Tokyo once a year in ordf?r
to nav their respects to the sov
ereign. They traveled by road, with
great retinues, and if the highways
were not in perfect condition, feudal
justice was meted out to the delinquents.?London
Good Company. As
friends-and companions, as teachers
and consolers, as recreators and
amusers, books are always with us and
always ready to respond to our wants.
We can take them with us in our wanderings
or gather them around us at
our firesides. In the lonely wilderness
and the crowded city their spirit will
be with us, giving a meaning to the
seemingly confused movements of hu
inanity and peopling the desert witn
their own bright creations.?John Alfred

Smoke from a lamp or gas often soils
a ceiling in the one particular spot,
while the rest remains beautifully

ceilings caused by lamp and gas will
be rendered less conspicuous if rubbed
over with dry whiting.
