THE STORY OF ",N INM' FAT.'
How R. B. Elott Tried to Make a Soeal Queen
of Her and Failed.
The New York 1kredd says: -Not long1
since there was a brief notice announem"c
the death of -Mrs. General . B. Eiiott,
wife of the late negro cougressnn who. a
few years ago, took such an active part in
South Carolina politics. Possibly no wo
man of the present century has cxperienced
such a sudden change from indience to
opulenIe or has risen so quickly in the so
cial scale. She was owned by a aI'nnly h!
Columbia, S. C. Hlername as
but on account of her plump nure !ie
bore the suggestive appellation of Nancy
Fat. She was an auia ble, humble cr""e.
Happy and indolent, with no amb (ion or
pride of character, she was as evntented
while engsged at the ost nerial toil atnd
drudgery, as wn, arrayed in fantastie
and gaudy attire, she danced as belie of Iti
shuckings. During the period of Republi
can rule, Elliott while in Columbia was'
one afternoon driving behind his splundid
pair of bays. lie v:ia dressed in his usual
style of black broadeloth and lavender kid
gloves. At the corner (of one of the streets
he saw a picture that proved to be the key
to his destiny. It was "Nancy Fat " She
had just drawn a bucket of waster from the
punip, and it was balanced on her tr baned
head, the crystal drops triekling down her
brown face and neeis, and she laughecd
good naturedly. 11er skirts aere tucked~
high, and there was a generous display of'
bare feet and ankles. The effect was ma
stantaneous, and the congressman in b road
cloth was hopelessly infatuated with the
'merry, ignorant water carrier. The lesult
was a speedy courtship and nmarriage. The
transformation was wondIerftut as it wa.,
sudden. From the washtub and the cook
ing stove she became mistress of a mianiti
cent home on one of the fashionable streets
of Columbia. Elliott was a man of brilliant
intellect and unhounded amblitlin. He
was one of the leading spirits of thle Repub
can party. and1 was regarded as one of the
most intelligent negroes who was ever
known in the South. lHe was f rom Boston,
Mass., he was a finished sc'hoiarn and a sue
cessful lawyer. Bis alliance with the '-n
tutored Nancy caused generid surprise.
Yet she was received by his friends with
courtesy and kindness. One day Iws
passing~ her house in company i'th '-er
former mistress, when we espied a s:-!
that was dIroll and amusing. I,"ide a
marble fountain surrounded by rare exotics
sat Mrs. Elliott. She was arrayed in a
costume of most extreme elegasee. Peep
. ng beneath her skirts of iaber sain we
plainly saw her bare brown feet. As. she
saw us she quickly tucked them uner h'er
skirts, and exclaimed good naturdy
" Now, old missis, don't laugh a~t you
nigger: you know I never did litt shoes.
If the General saw mse he would :'old, but
every chance 1 get I jast slip tht~h off. All
this finery can't make me forget the happy
(lays when I was phiin 'Nancy Fat. and
now I am 3Mrs. General Coieressman
Elliot.'' MIuch amused we passed on, and
left her w ith her bare fec t in the damnp satud
of the fountain. A few years lat.-ru Mrs.
Elliott became a prominent feature in the
Republican society of the Stite, and also
figured conspicuously in Washington. It
was during General Grant's administrat ion
at one of the balls that she caused suelb a
sensation on account of the devoted a::ca
tions she receivedi from certain proinent
white politicians who va ished to maike con
spicuous their approval (If the social equal

Croing Niagara on a Bicycle.
A U;niralo special says: Alphonso King
of New York this afternoon successfully
accomplished the feat of crossing the
Niagara torrent below the cataract on a
water bicycle. One trip was laade from
the American io Canadian shore in four
aiid a half minutes, and, contrary to ex
pectation, tle rapids did not capsize the
novel craft. The apparatus consisted of
two long zinc cylinders for buoyancy,
and the propelling power was a bicycle
wheel with small paddles attached.
When mounted on the machine the
tubes sauk so low in the water that King
appeared to be riding a regular wheel
across the gorge. He wore a high hat, a
Prince Albert coat and rubber leggings,
thc latter being the only protection from
the water. A boat load of reporters,
rowed by Tom Conroy, the noted guide,
went along to rescue King in case he
capsized. The current carried him
iagonally in the direction of the Whirl
pool Rapids, but he had suflicient con
trol of the bicycle to succeed in the per
formance. Several thousand persons,
including Priuce Devanwongso and the
other Siamese visitors, saw the feat and
cheered when it was accomplished. Dr.
John A. Lanigan, on behalf of Buffalo
adirers, presented King with a costly
.1 Lbor Moewent in Augusta.

(lermgymen's' Sore Throats.
An English surgeon claims to have
iscovred the cause of clergymen's sore
brats. No other speakers are affected
n this way, and he has come to the con
lusion that the malady is induced by
eaking down to a congregation from
devated pulpit, thereby depressing
ie vocal organs and causing irritation
td congestion. If clergymen would
toid the head erect and speak up they
o 2uhlnee have throat trouble, and
en if already sufflering to some extent

SAYINGS BY BOB INGERSOLL.
Extr-ctat from an Addres-s Made by HiED
in a Lecture in New York.
In a lecture delivered in New York re
cently, Col. Robert G. Ingersoll among
other things said:
If nobody has too much everybody
will have enough.
I would like to see this world so that a
man could die and not feel that he had
left his wife and children a prey to the
greed or avarice or necessities of man
There is something wrong in the sys
tem when idleness is burdened with
wealth and Industry with famine:
Get out of your minds that old non
sense about man's free moral agency.
A man is no more responsible for his
character than for his height, or for his
acts than for his dreams. Then you
will have charity for the whole human
Wealth is no crime, nor is poverty a
virtue, although virtue has generally

ITo do right is the bud, blossom, and
fruit of wisdom.
No perfectly civilized man coul be
happy while there was an unhappy be
ingr in the universe that he knew.
The poor imagine that the rich live in
Paradise. I know that the most of them
live in a gilded Hell.
No man has the genius or the brain to
own $5,000,000. The money owns him.
He is the key to a safe. Yet these men
go on accumulating. It is a sort of in
sanity. Imagine a man-a good, intelli
gent man-with 2,000.000 coats [laugh
ter]. 6,000,000 or 8,000,000 hats [chee-rs],
a billion~ neckties [laughter and cheers).
Then imagine him getting up at 4t::0
o'clock in the morning and working hard
all day to get another necktie. [Pro

The rich have scorn and contempt for
the poor; the poor envy and hatred for
the rich. There must be some way for
the loving poor and the sympathetic rich
to get acquainted. If there is anvtinga
that should bring mankind together it is
a common belief, but in this Chiitian
country there is no welcome in the velvet
for the rags. I would think munch of
any religion that would allow the rih
and the poor to clasp hands, if only for
one instant once a week.

Millions of machines have been in

No mian should be allowed to own any
land that he does not use; but I would

without paying for it.
