A Quick Pardon.
Mr. Moses Levi was thrown intc
consternation last Monday by having
his butler, Raymond Wilson, arrested
for being an escaped convict from the
penitentiary. It appears that Wilson
was convicted in 1873, at the Darling
ton court, of grand larceny, and sen
tenced to three years in the peniten
tiary. It was in the good old days of
Radical stealing, and Wilson was sent
out with others to do work at Gov.
Moses's house. He says that it was a
common thing for a prisoner to quiet
ly walk away and not return, so one
day he thought he would do likewise.
He came down to Clarendon, where
he has since lived. He was employed
more than twelve years ago by Mr.
Levi, and Mr. Levi says he is the best
negro be ever had. When he was ar
rested, Mr. Levi at once got up a pe
tition stating that Wilson was a
straightforward honest man, with a
spotless reputation, that he had for a
number of years voted the Democrat
ic ticket, etc. This was signed by the
solicitor, the county officers, and about
every prominent person in the place.
Another petition was signed by the
colored people. Armed with this pe
tition and accompanied by the sher
iff, Mr. Levi went to Columbia yes
terday, and obtained from the Gov
ernor an immediate pardon. Wilson
had in the meantime been put back
into the penitentiary, had had his
head shaved, and his convict clothes
on, and had been put to work, he hav
ing been carried to Columbia on the
same train Mr. Levi went on. But in
two hours' time he was pardoned.
Wilson is a good, quiet, sober negro,
and a term in the penitentiary would
have done him no good. Our color
ed people can thus see what it is to
live a good life towards the white
people. They will receive help when

He Didn't Count on the Plaster.
There is a young man living in
Manning, a good-looking fellow, who
has a sweetheart out in the country a
few miles, and he spends two even
ings in every week in her society. A
few nights ago he stayed to the usu
al hour, and as he passed out the front
door he discovered that it was cloudy
and dark. He did not relish the idea
of going home alone through the
gloomy night, and hinted a good deal
to get an invitation to remain, but it
was not forthcoming. But the young
man was equal to the emergency. Go
ing down the steps he artfully contri
ved to slip and fall gently to the
ground. Thereupon he set up a tre
mendous groaning. The ruse worked
admirably. The girl screamed and the
men came and carried the young man
tenderly into the house. Then he was
assisted to undress and deposited in
the spare room. He had barely begun
to chuckle over the success of the
stratagem when the girl's mother put
in an appearance, armed with a mus
tard plaster a foot square. This she
immediately proceeded to clap on the
young man's shoulders where he in
cautiously located the damage to his
frame. For two mortal hours that wo
man sat by the bed, and was not sat
isfied till she beheld a blister an inch
deep. The young man is now reform

An Incident in Grady's Life.
Little things show character, so the
phiosophers say. Then the follow
ing story of Grady, told by himself to
a firiend, and preserved in the Atlanta
Constitution, proves that the strong
man had a child's heart He visited
his mother on Christmas a year ago,
and he says:
I don't think I ever felt happier
than when I reached the little home
of my boyhood. I got there at night.
She had saved supper for me and she
had remembered all the things I liked.
She toasted me some cheese over the
fire. Why, I hadn't tasted anything
like it since I put off my round jack
ets. And then she had some home
made candy she knew I used to love,
and, bless her heart ! I just felt six
teen again as we sat and talked, and
tshe told me how she prayed for me
and thought of ime always and what a
i brightness I had been to her life, and
how she heard me coming home ir

came and tucked the cover all around
me in the dear old way that none bul

rhappy and so peaceful and so full of
Stender love and tender memories thai
I cried happy, grateful tears until]
went to sleep.
IWhen he finished, says the narra
tor, his eyes were full of tears, and sc
were mine. He brushed his hanc
facross his brow swiftly and said
laughingly :-"Why, what are yoi
crying about ?" W bat do you knowi
e about all this sort of feeling ?"

present crisis his wise counsels wi]
Christmas has th;year been unusual

of those that we have heard of:
Last Thursday evening the mule on which
Mr. J. N. Riggs was riding, became fright
ened near Mr. W. J. Clark's and started to
run. Mr. Riggs tried to retain his seat in
the saddle, but a few kicks and pitches, a
broken saddle girth, and he went [spinning
forward over the mule's head. He came down
head-foremost on the hard clay. He received
on the top of his head a gash three inches
long and to the bone, and was kno'eked un
conscious. Messrs Geo. and Frank McCall,
who were passing at the time in their wag
on, took him up and brought him on to
Dinkins & Co's drug store, where his wound
was dressed, six stitches being necessary to
sew up the wound. Mr. Riggs lost a quanti
ty of blood, and was dangerously hurt, but
he is improving. He is still confined to his
Policeman King was dangerously cut
Christmas day, by Frank Johnson, a colored
man from about Wilsons. Policeman Clark
was attempting to arrest a negro in a dis
reputable house, and Mr. King, who was
not on duty at the time but happened to be
about, went to his assistance. Mr. King had
just succeeded in pulling the arrested negro
to the door when Frank Johnson ran up be
hind him (King), and began slashing into
him with a razor. The negro made at least
two attempts to cut him. The first time the
razor cut a hole at least ten inches long in
the pantaloons, and grazed the skin. The
second time he cut a gash in Mr. King's
right thigh about six inches long and an
inch and a half deep. Dr. Pack sewed up
the wound, and Mr. King is getting on very
well. He was able to be out on crutches to
Doctor Hilton, a colored man on Santee,
was accidentally shot in the calf of his leg
last Friday, a very severe wound.
Mr. J. H. Scarborough, of Manville, Sum
ter county, was severely and dangarously
beat over the head and face by Mr. Pink
Coleman on last Thursday night. Dr. Pack
was called in, and it took 25 stitches to sew
up the wounds. One across the face was
4J inches long and to the bone. Two arter
ies were cut, and he was in danger of bleed
ing to death. Mr. Coleman is contined in
jail, charged with assault and battery, with
attempt to kill.

Christmas Eve, cut his foot very badly, al

The case of Daisy Robinson the little ne

still unexplained. Things fly around 1the

several feet away. All of these things have
been witnessed by reliable citizens who are
unable to explain the cause. Last week large
crowds flocked to see her while in the yard

How They Hunt at Panola.
PAxora, S. C., DEc. 2-4TH, 1889.
EDIToR ANNING TMrEs:-I noticed il
your last issue quite a revelation from "Par
son Sumter." whom I had several pleasani
days with last week, at my house and in the
tield, as he wrote you.
Politeness to my guest causes me to feel
very modest in attempting to deplumehin
of any glory he may claim ov-r ime, as it
was my special desire to have him enjoy hi
visit and field sports while with me. But
since he has thrown down the gauntlet and
opened this battery of criticism, etc., upon
me, I am obliged to ask "Parson Sumter'
what he considers a beat, as I am obliged to
differ with him in the count. I fear he lost
his "notch stick" before he began his com
putation, or else we used different methods
of counting. We will see.
'My little brother, who took my place in
my absence on the first day's hunt, bagged
more birds than he did. Parson's shells
were all right too. The second day I was
there in usual good spirits and confident of
success. And, when the aay's hunt was over,
I was not disappointed when I counted more
birds from my bag than he did.
Now I began to feel real sorry for him, as
at least one of the party to whom he was
anxious to appear as the Sumter crack shot
began to feel ashamed of him for coming so
far to enter a contest, and to be two days
behind in the race.
So the third day, Parson W. and I agreed
to give him an excuse. We loaded a few
shells with slugs, not the ones he was using
however, and that night made it convenient
to cut into onc', before the eyes of every one
present, and the "mental dejection"' I suf
fered then was that he did not make use of
the trick to excuse his defeat, as he was that
day farther behind than ever, and still my
le says he beat me in the field and in the
highway. There was an occasion ke this.
I routed a bird from a ditch lying of the
highway. The bird went in his Oection,
flying between him and the ditch, and in
such close proximity to him that I had to
keep one eye on him and the other on the
bird, so missed the bird, rather than run the
risk of carrying him home, both beaten and
Now the hunt was over, and we were
homeward bound, and I noticed that the
"Parson" was unusually quiet and wearing
the usual long face of a sportsman after de
feat, arousing himself occasionally to re
mark that I had shot a great many times
more than he had, and that he had done
much better shooting than I had done, in
proportion to number of shots.
My sympathies were now keenly aroused,
and I felt relieved that he had found an ar
gument that would reconcilehim. But, since
reading the article in your paper, I have
concluded that this is the way Sumter
sportsmen count, when they fail to "git 'em
in de bag."
Now 1 kept no account of my shots, or the
number of times he shot. So if he did, and
it is upon this ground that he claims victory,
I reckon I am out, as I shot every one I
could see and some that I couldn't see.
I'll get even with him, if that is his game,
as I will let pop shots and thicket chances
pass next time, as he did. And now, I ex
tend to the "Parson" a cordial invitation to
come down again and enter the contest. I
will be glad to entertain him, and will prom
ise to take the best care possible of him and
his shells. PANOLA'S CRACK SHOT.

PAxOLa, DEC. 30.- Christmas has come
and gone. We have had our joys fully met.
To some it has been melancholy and sad.
An unusual degree of pleasure in our own
lives dates back for fifty-two years. Appar
ently vigorous and youthful, though still
resting on the margin of the river, waiting
to cross over, one of my age and time of
life can expect but a short time upon earth.
It may be before another Christmas day the
winged messenger will claim many who to
day rejoice over the pleasures of life. Ret
rospectively, sins of omission, as well as
commission, lie at our door. Who of us, the
best of us, can foreshadow the good or evil
we have done to mankind, or who of the
younger generation may date their downfall
from our example ? Example should have
the greatest weight in a man's character.

Gen. Sherman Says, Nonsense.
John M. Westbrook and Edwin R. GoodE
have for some time caused considerable ex
citement in Kershaw County, S. C., by em
ploying a large gang of negroes in digginp
near Lynch's Creek, for the purpose, as they
say, of finding a treasure, amounting t<
$200,000, which they say was buried ther
by Gen. W. T. Sherman in 1865. The search
ers claim that they were specially commis
sioned by John Sherman to do the work
Yesterday Gen. Sherman said that it was al:
stuff and nonsense to connect his name with
the scheme. He knew nothing about any
treasure.-X Y. World.
In reference to the above the Charlestor
News and Courier says: "As Gen. Shermar
denies positively that he buried any treas
ures in Kershaw County, :- 1865, the peo
ple of that county have strong encourage.
ment to keep on digging. The old freeboot
er's assertions usually are like dreams-ihey
go by contraries'"
DOES EXPERIENCE COUNT ?
It does, :n every line of business, and es.
pecially in compounding and preparing
medicines. This is illustrated in the greal
superiority of Hood's Sarsaparilla over
other preparations, as shown by the re.
markable cures it has accomplished.
The head of the firm of C. I. Hood & Co..
is a thoroughly competent and experienced
pharmacist, having devoted his whole life
to the study and actual preparation of med.
icines. He is also a member of the Massa.

sociations, and continues actively devoted
to supervising the preparation of and man
aging the business connected with Hood's
Hence the superiority and peculiar meril
of Hood's Sarsaparilla is built upon th(
most subs-.antial foundation. In its prepar.
ation there is representcd all the knowlcdge
which modern research in medical science
has developed, combined with long experi,
ence, brain-work, and experiment. It ib
only necessary to give this medicine a fain
tial to realize its great curative value.
