had been a silent spectator during the

coffin had been lowered into the grave,
stepped forward, and jumped into
the grave, snatched the coffin from
its place, threw it out, and then jump

the coffin, put it on his shoulder, and
walked off The bystanders were so
greatly horrified that no one attempt

dead about thirty-six hours, and de

walked off, the water trickled out of
the coffin, down his clothing. It is
not known where he carried the child,
as no one followed him. He claims
that after the crowd had dispersed,
upon being remonstrated with by
some of his friends he returned alone
to the grave, and buried the child.
He also claims, as his reason for thus
acting, that he had not been treated
with proper respect by the mother of
the child, in being promptly notified
of the death and time and place of

A Pleasant Visit to Greeleyville.
MR. Enrro:-A few days ago in
company with twidower I took a trip
to the historic Greeleyville, Williams
burg county. I was delighted to see
so many evidences of prosperity.
Where once stood the little pine huts,
now may be seen palatial residences,
fit for the habitation of any one.
These evidences of thrift and go
aheaditiveness is in a great measure
attributable to the indomitable ener
gy of Mr. Samuel J. Taylor, than
whom no more genial, hospitable
gentleman can be found. Crops in
the immediate vicinity though need
ing rain gave evidence of an abun
Without making individious dis
tinction I must say that my friend,
Dr. J. MI. B.'s, crop far surpassed any
that I saw. Cotton very fine, and in
fine con.dition, needing only the show
ers (which it has since had) to push
it on to maturity. Corn, equal if not
superior to any I saw. Mr. Editor,
if you wish to spend a few pleasant
days just visit. that christian home
where Dr. and Mrs. B. preside, and
around whom have grown up to
blushing maidenhood and manhood,
their children, who are kind, obedi
dient, respectful, intelligent, vivacious,
and loquacious. Although the blight
ing touch of disease has greatly im
paired his physical man, impeding
the power of locomotion, which pre
rents him from meeting his visiting
riends beyond the portals, yet after
:rossing the threshold you will find a
big, warm welcome, and a generous
and unstinted hospitality extended.
His mental powers are all intact, and
you will ind him ready to impart in
formation upon any subject which
nay be broached. There too stands
the altar, long since erected, upon
hhich the fire has never been allowed
to go out, where the morning and
,vening sacrifice is offered in grateful
reognition of the superintending
:are of Him, whose hand has led him
dl along life's slippery pathway.
A visit, Mr. Editor, will cause you
co exclaim, like the queen of Sheba,
'The half has not been told," and,
'Re your correspondent, "It was good
:o be there."

was more convenient than walking. One
had to cross the Coneemaugh at a second
point in order to reach Johnstown proper.
This was accomplished by a skiff ferry. The
ferryman clung to the rope - and pulled the
boat over. After landing one walks across
the desolate sea of mud, in which there are
interred the re ins of many human bod
ies. It was o~ a handsome portion of
town. The cellars are filled up with mud,
so that a person who has never seen the
city can hardly imagine that houses ever
stood where they did. Four streets solidly
built up with houses have been swept away.
Nothing but a small two-story frame house
remains. It was near the edge of the wave,
and thus escaped. One side was taken up
and it hangs to one side, making a picture
of misery. The walk up to the wrecks of
the iouses was interrupted in mauy places
by small branch streams. Occasionally
across the fiats could be seen the remains of
a victim. The stench arising from the mud
is sickening to the extreme degree. Along
the route were strewn tin utensils, iron
pipes, wares of every conceivable kind of

outlining a distorted grin, but it now has a
smile of fiendish mockery. It is impossi
ble to describe the appearance of Main
street. Whole houses have been swept
down this one street and become lodged.
The wreck is piled as high as the strend
story windows, and the reporter could step
from the wreck into the auditorium of the
Opera House. The ruins consist of parts
of houses, trees, logs and reeds from the
wire factory. Many houses have their side
walls and roofs torn up, and you can walk
directly into what had been the second
story bed rooms, or go in by way of the top.
Further up town a raft of logs lodged in
the streets and did much damage. The
best description that can be given of the
general appearance of the wreck is to imag
ine a number of children's blocks placed
closely together and draw your hand through
them in almost every direction.

was broken by heavy rains on Friday night

to see which will get there in this race is
interesting the farmers just at this time,
and to a certain extent the one that wins
will be the extermination of the other one.
Grass is of such a selfish nature that he
won't let anything else do well and live
where he has control. Grass is a good thing
in its place, but it won't do to try. to make
it and other crops on the same piece of land
it the same time. All successful farmers

After a drouth of a month we have been
blessed with a fine rain. Tho crops have
cffered but little, it has given them a re
reshing appearance. Corn is small, but
ooks hardy. On low, damp ground
,t has been badly cut down by
worms. Cotton is as fine as it is possible
or it to be. In some fields it is taking on

iation of a heavy crop, most of the fields
eing free from grass.

that the horse was sixteen feet high. He
says he is going to make five hundred
bushels, and as he has said it he won't re
tract it. His prospects are fiattering.
All our people appear to be in a contented
and happy frame of mind,-no croakers nor
idlers, all having enough to do to look after
their own affairs, and not bother others.
Our church and ~schools, .both Sunday
and day, are all well attended and prosper
In speaking of the crops I neglected to
mention the oat crop, which ?as been partly
harvested. The yield was line.
The peach crop is abundant, and if you
will take a run down the latter part of the
month you shan't return without a fine
mess of peaches, and we may put on a lit
tle sugar and cream, and if they won't go
down- easy we will chuck in a piece of ice
and freeze them all up together. Frozen
peaches aint bad. ONE

is a distressing case, and our sympathies are
