LITTLE AH LID.
Little Ah Sid
Was a Chinese kid
A cute little cuss, you'd declare,
With eyes full of fuu.
And a nose that begun
Right up at the roots of his hair.
Jolly and fat
Was this frollIesome irat.
As he played through the long summer day:
And braided his cue
As his father used to
In Chinaland. far, far, away.
Once o'er a lawn.
That Ah Sid played upon,
A bumble bee Ilew in the spring;
" Mlican butterfly
Said he with winking eye.
"Me catchee and pull off umni wing
Then with his cap
le struck it a rap
This innocent bumble bee,
And put its remains
In the seat of his jeans.
For a pocket there had the Chince.
Down on the green
Sat the little sardine, t
In a style that was strangely demure.
And said, with a grin
That was brimful of sin.
"Me mashee um butterfly, sure"'
Little Ahl Sid
Was only a kid,
Nor could you expect him to guess
What kind of a bug
le was holding so snug
In the fold of his loose titting dress.
Ah Sid cried, as he

THE STATE PRESS ASiCIMT.N.
A Goodly Gathering In Charleston-What the
Newspaper Men Did at Their Meeting.
(From the News and Courier.) C
The thirteenth annual meeting of the c
Press Association was held at the armory
of the Washington Light Infantry Thursday I
night. The attendance ol nieibers was 1
not as large as it has been heretofore, owing
to the fact that a good many of the mem- 2
bers arrived on the late trains. The fol- I
lowing members were found present, how
ever, and the meeting was called to order
by the President, Col. M. B. McSweeney:
Hampton Guardian, Col. M. B. 3fc
Aiken Journal and Rcricc. Mr. L. C. t
Aiken Recorder, Col. C. E. R. Drayton.
Florence Times, Col. C. H. Prince.
Spartanburg erald, Mr. W. M. Jones.
Sumter Watchman and &uthron, Mr. N.
Barnwell People, Col. J. W. Holmes and
Mr. C. C. Simms.

and Mr. W. H. Faber.
Charleston Diepatch4, Mr. S. D. Hutson.

Capt. J. L. Weber and Mr. J. A. Moroso.

Laurensville Advertiser, Col. J. C. Gar
Laurensv'ille Ilerald. Col. T. B. Crews.
Anderson Journal, Major A. S. Todd.
Messrs. C. H. Prince and J. A. Moroso
were elected secretaries. The reading of
the minutes was, on motion of Major
Melchers, dispensed with, and Mr. W. A
Jones, the annual orator, was introduced,
and read an address on the subject of rail
road discriminations. The address was
thoughtful, practical and to the point, and
was heartily applauded.
At its close Capt. F. W. Dawson moved
that the cordial thanks of the Association
be tendered to Mr. W. M. Jones for his <
eminently thoughtful and suggestive ad-t
dress. It touches, he said, matters of
special importance to us at tis time, fori
within the past few days an mistance hasI
occurred showing that a certain railroad
mangement had no more regard for the
interests of the people of the State than a
child would have for the puny ant-hills be
neath his feet. He also expressed the hope
that the address would be placed at the
disposal &-ttie Association for publication.
The maisters it treated of should be brought
to the attention of the people of the State.
The Neres and Courier, he said, wouik be
glad to publish it.
The motion, seconded by Col. C. E. R.
Drayton, was unanimously adepted, and
the secretaries were directed to procure a
copy of the address for publication in- the
News and Courier.
On motion of Mr. C. II. Prince, the ad
dress was also directed to be published in
the minutes of the Association.
The president then stated that he had re
ceived an invitation from the News and
Caurier for the members of the Associa
tion to go on an excursion around the har
bor to-day. The invitation was accepted
and the arrangements announced.
The president was also requested to con
vey t.he thanks of the Association to the.
Washington Light Infantry for the use of
the armory for the meeting. .
The Association then entered upon a dis <
cussion of matters of interest to the profes-.
sion, the principal topics discussed being
~the rates for foreign advertisements and the3
regulations of delinquent subscribers.
The di-scussion was participated in by
Messrs. Jones, McSwen -.Drayton, Daw
so h~snf~es and e icitedh a
pulexpression of the views and experiences
of the members. The meeting, after he-ir
ing the treasurer's report read by Major ~
Franz Melchers, took a recess until 9 o'clock

A LITTLE LADY.
1 know a little lady
Who wears a hat of green.
All trimmed with red, red roses,
And a blackbird on the brim.
She ties it down with ribbons
Under her dimpltd chin:
For oftentimes it's breezy
When she comes tripping in.
She'll drop a dainty courtesy.
Perhaps she'll throw a kiss:
She brings so many hundred
That one she'll never miss.
With laughing. sunny glances
She comes, her friends to greet:
There's not another maiden
In all the world so sweet!

Ric-ony, May 24.-I see your paper
conains an advertisement of the famous
summer resort, located six miles from
Hiceory and is reached by a drive over
six miles of the best road that can be
found in North Carolina. Here you will
find the Sparkling Catawbu Springs
which is fast gaining a reputation abroad
for its great healing qualities. We have
just returned from the Springs and find
everything in apple-pie order for the
comfort of guests. D)r. E. 0. Elliott .v

for entertaining guests and can now
easily accommodate 400 people. The
grounds are beautiful and parties wish
ing to be away from the noise of a hotel
can have rooms in cottages located on
the grounds, of which there are about
thiry. There will be a band of music
at the Springs throughout the entire
season and the young people who like to
trip the light fantastic toe will find here
a eol ball room and the best ot music

description, from the plunge bath in the
lrge building erect-.d especially for the
purpose, with a swimaming capacity of
30x:5, but surrounded on either side by
convenient dressing rooms. You can
also get hot air and vapor baths if
needed. The bowling alley is first class
and is a good exercise to work up an ap

furnished on the tables by the proprie

Sultan Selin's Mosque.
Sultan Selim's mosque at Adrianople
is the linest in the Moslem world. Seen
from a distance in the train, its rotunda
and four tall minarets make itlook to
western eves like a huge gasometer,
but, says a writer in the London Times,
it is worth while spending a day at
Adrianople if only to see the inside of
this marvelous building. Since the
Rus'ians last came here and stamped
all over the place with their muddy
booIs, the Turks are no longer particular
about requiring Ginours to go in unshod.
A servant brings capacious babouches,
which you drag on over your boots, and

dome, the countless painted arches and
columns and the perfect stillness of the

with 01 :.r heads bent and their palms
on their thighs, the sight, as those who
have witnessed it say, is one never to
be forgotten. This mosque of Selim has
999 windows. and a thousandth which
is closed. The great Sultan had order
ed a thousand windows, and, when he
heard that there was one shert, he sent
for the architect and stroked his beard
with an air which boded no good; but
the architect, who deserved to live in
the days of putf advertisements, re
marked that a mosque with a thousand
windows would convey nothing of odd
itv to the curious, whereas a mosque
with 999 windows and one closed would
set people talking and wondering for
g'-s. ~The mosque has another legend
connected with a stone violet plant
which is carved over its fountain. A
poor man, who owned part of the
ground over which the mosque is built,
iefucd to sell his land unless a violet
which had been planted by his wife was
allowed to bloom upon it. The Sultan
acct )ted the condition, and the viole1
was carefully railed in and tended, but
in time it did, and the sovereign order

the spot where it had blossomed, and
that a stone violet should be carved

Miss Easlnke's Quaint Gowns.
Miss Eastlake affects the quaint
gowns which are unlike the fashion
able garb that the average woman of
to-day' clothes her figure in. Thee
gown's, by the way, have created more
or less discussion, both in and out of
prt. To my mind, however, they
form no slight part of the same individ
ulty thiat on every side besets the lady.
To Ec Mis Eastlake arrayed in any
hing~ but the soft, dark, clinging
pu ues thatt are cut so as to hang primi
chuliv fr. m the shoulders, with the
bioal, deep frill cf fine embroidery or
lace gathered around the neck, that
have become famous in London as the
-Eatlake collar," would seem like tak
ing the pretty children that Kate
Greenaway knew so well how to draw
in picturesquec attire, and decking them,
instead, like a French doll that the true
Parisian chil' selects in one of the gay
toy-shops of Paris. The word esthetic
which hias been applied so often to Miss
Eastlake, is not the proper word to use
in describing her at all; that is, as we
in this age in England and America
understand the word. That Miss East
lae is a believer in snsthetics is true,
for she is a tirm believer in the science
which treats of all that is beautiful in
