A Race That Was Not Run.
Last Thursday morning in the vicinity of
Legg & Hutchinson's stables there was con
siderable activity among those that had
-sporting blood coursing through their
'reins. A discussion arose as to the run
'ning abilities of certain' horses, one of
-which belongs to the stable and the other
to a gentleman boarding his horse at the
stable. Each horse soon had his favorite
-willing to back his judgment oy wagering
-some filthy lucre. Bets were freely made
:against the horse belonging to the stable,
:and were taken up by a certain young man
who had lots of confidence in the horse he
While the excitement was warm the two
owners of the horses got together and ar
ranged to put up a huge joke on the en
thusiastic admirier of the stable .horse.
'The rest of the crowd understood this, and
became very extravagant in their bets, until
:tbe place sounded like the poel room of a
Saratoga club house.
The arrangement was for the stable horse
-to be beaten, and as a horse race will draw
:a crowd when eveiythinig else fails, it was
not long before everybody in town had
,heard of it, and was watching to see when
-the sports were going to the race course.
.About six o'clock the crowd from the stables
-started, and were followed by a large crowd
from town. They went across Ox Swamp,
near the Blackwell place, and there selected
the ground. The road was alive with pe
.destrians and vehicles, it -presented the
appearance of the road to the fair grounds
during the races. All kinds of people an d
professions were on the move to witness
this race--merchants, clerks, doctors, law
yers, officials, bankers, butchers, horse
jockeys, dudes, ben~ts, loafers, kids, and
Ou arriving at the grounds the, riders
rode their horses over the ground to inspect
it, leaving the excited mass of humanity at
the other end, where they would have a fine
view of the race. But on this road there is
a curve and when the riders turned the
curve and were out of sight of the crowd,
they decided to turn the joke on the crowd
by putting spurs to their steeds and riding
home, leaving the sports behind with gap
ing mouths and wide stretched eyes wait
ing to see the races.
The riders arrived home at least a half
hour a head of the disappointed crowd, and
some of them felt so badly sold that they
took the back streets, to keep from being
guyed by a crowd that were waiting on the

Maj. H. I. Lesesne.
Major Henry Hiltnn Lesesne died at
his residence near Jordan, at 5 o'clock this
monrnin. :w d fifty.one years. He served
as sheriff of this county for fourteen years,
having been elected in 1877 to till an unex
pired term. He was one of the most popu
lar men in the county. Major Lesesne was
a gallant Confederate soldier, having enter
ed the service in the bc-inning of the war
as a lieutenant of the Sprott Guards. Ie
was promoted from time to time till he be
came mjor of the 23rd S. C. Volunteers.
Major Lesesne had becn in bad health

that he has since been confined to his home.

Beautiful Wild Flowers.
We find in the Xets and Courior of last
Saturday the following very complimentary
allusicn to one of our prettiest young ladies:
"Perhaps one of the most noteworthy ex
hibits in the hall was a collection of wild
flowers, exhibited by Miss Mamie G. Clark,
of Manning. S. C. The collection, which
numbered between thirty and forty varie
ties of South Carolina wild flowers, was
sent down by express on Thursday morn
ing and was beautifully arranged by a com
mittee of ladies. The exhibit was very
justly awarded the first prize."

There is an ordinance in this town pro
hibiting the firing of pistols within the
corporate limits, and the council should
require the police to see that parties violat
ing this ordinance are arrested and brought
before them for punishment. The ordi
nance was passed for the protection of our
citizens, and if it is not enforced there is
no telling how soon some valuable life may
be destroyed by the promiscuous shooting of
firearms on our streets.
The stillness of the night was disturbed
last Friday evening by the sharp report of
a pistol just behind Mr. M. Kalisky as he
was passing Legg & Hutchinson's stables
while on his way home from his place of
business. It was so unexpected that Mr.
Kalisky's first impulse was to "climb over
the garden wall" that joirs the stables, but
as he is rather corpulent he was afraid that
he would make haste slowly in case there
was an assassin lurking behind the trees.
He was naturally excited, whuch added mo
tive power to his pedal extremities, and he
got away from that place about as fast as it
takes the second hand of a watch to make
its circuit. Arriving at his gate he was
much fatigued from his active exercise.
Never having experienced anything like it
before,. and feeling perfectly friendly with
all mankind, he did not before this dream
that he had an enemy. The excitement was
too much. It upset his think works, and set
his imagination to work at a lively rate.
He thought he was shot and called for a
light, at the same time holding on to
the wound with a vice-like grip to stop the
gory stream. He believed that his life
blood was slowly ebbing away.
The light was brought and to his utter
astonishment not a sign of blood was to
be found, and what he imagined was blood,
was a splinter in his pants, and huge drops
ot perspiration as large as "matzo balls."
A Dangerous Period.
As the season moves swiftly toward
the boundary lines that lie between
winter and spring, it frequently hap
pens that the human system, which
has borne the strain of winter, shows
signs of relanation. In all ages this
period has been noted as a dangerous
one, especially to those who have
weak constitutions. A course of the
great blood purifier and tonie, S. S. S.,
will enable the most delicate to face
the season's changes with impunity.
It is a medicine that not only
strengthens the weak and delicate,
but is an additional safeguard for
those who consider themselves strong.
