Don't You Cry for Me. Mr. Smith
Has Returned from Alabama.
The !ollowini paragralh was taken
from the Hopkins, S. C., correspon
dence to the Coluibia Register:
Mr. T. Francis Smith., a laing country
centienan of this section of Richlan., lft
bere last 'hirsday for Mobilt,, A-. His
intention was to weI a l0y living there
whom he had never 'seen-only saw her
photograph -and she refned to marrv
him after he had traveled a distance of
over .500 miles. I hope this will be a can
tion to men of his age, which i- abont GO
Mr. Smith is quite well known here
and has many friends in the country
whom he often solicited to insuie
their lives; some of them were aware
of his romantic intention to play
matrimonial blind man's buff, and
of course they want to learn how he
came out with his venture. It was
known to some that Brother Smith
was in correspondence with what
purported to be a Miss Ophelia
West, of Mobile, Ala., and her photo
graph showed her to be Voung and
beautiful; after it was agreed that a
marriage was to follow this corres
pondence, a time was fixed for the
swain of three score years to go to
see his loved one. She wrote him
that she would
"Meet him in blue.
And kiss him true."
And the old gent went, but Oh!
what a difference when they met; she
saw him, and told him to "git." The
blissful dream of Brother Smith was
knocked into smithereens, and sor
rowfully be pulled his freight for
This fair Ophelia cruelly trifled
with our friends affections and she
should be ashamed of herself, for it
was very naughty in her to do the
old gentleman that way.
If Mr. snith ever visits Mar ning
again we hope he will give us an es
sav entitled, "what kind of a fool, is
an~ old fool any way," so that in the
future the sight of a feminine hand
witing on a piece of paper, or the
photograph of an object in skirts will
not turn the head of an innocent
youth of sixty years.
Why the Alabama beauty refused
to marry Brother Smith, when she
laid her lovely and bewitching eyes
upon him is open only to conjecture,
for we are sure lie is a nice old rman,
and displayed lots of nerve in travel
ing 500 miles to marry a women lie
had never seen. Fortunately for him
the girl owed nobody a grudge and
was not red-haired. Mr. Smith is
entertaining to the unemployed Jobs
and he is not of the worldly kindI; his
piety no doubt will stand him in good
stead at this time, for other men
would cuss and have no sy t v

I left behind me."~

FRIEND PLAYER VISITS HIS
Martini's X Roads, Nov. 30, 189G.
Editor - The Manning Times:
Pease allow me space in .iour jour
nal to relate to the public what a
grand day last Thursday (Thanks
giving Day) was, the writer being a
recipient of on invitation to dine
with Mr. S. W. McIntosh, in the
Salem section. After a drive of 10
miles with my' family I was there.
I was agreeably surprisedl to find a
goodly number collected, with a
beautifully decorated stage, rehears
ing fur the coming entertainment,
gotten up by Miss Maud Garland,
prinipally by students of her schoot
Miss Maud is a model girl and is
fsmous for school entertainmnents.
About 5 o'clock the people began to
come and continued until about
three hundred had arrived. The ex
ercises commenced at 6 o'clock p. mn.
The large audience was composed of
ladies and gentlemen of profound re
finements, judging from the orderly
conduct which prevailed. Dur-ing
the exercises the crowd was quite so
licitous, but I imnagine it wvas owing
to the eloquent, interesting and in
structive progr-am that contained rec
itations of both natures, reading and
musical, which were delivered su
blimely. The dialogues were acted'
with much stress, and so impressive
that I think all present must concede
that it was a feast to their eyes and
also to their mental capacities.
Now I wish that I couxld narrate
the entire details of the occasion, but
I am afraid it will take too munch of
your time and space, therefore will
conclude by saying every feature of
the' program was quite interesting
and gratifying to all present, and
more especially the writer, wvho met
so many of his friends and relatives
there. The greetings and reminis
cances of the past were quite plain
and meditative. Oh, could we recall
the past or buy time, what a differ
ent people we would be. Nevert he-e
less, we should be thankful, and suf
fice to say that we all were thankful
to the Great I Am for permitting us
to meet on such an occasion to min
gle together with relatives, friends:
and strangers, in social inter-coursec
and friendship, discussing the topics 1
of the day and in every way pertain-C
ing to the interest and wvelfare of our
Now, Mr. Editor, I will reiterate by
saing I felh thankfjl first to the
Gceat I Am an:d lastly to the goody
peole of the commitiiy for the.
-oirtesy and hospitality tendered met
a-dm aily during my sojourn.

VIRGINIA'S ICE MINE.
It Is One of the Greatest Wonders In
One of the greatest curiosities in the
United States, or in the world, perhaps,
is the wonderful ledge of ice which ex
ists, even in the midst of the hottest
summer, in Scott county, Va. This nat
ural icehouse is situated on the north
side of Stone mountain and about six
miles from the mouth of a small stream
known as Stony creek. The marvel is
said to have been k-nown to at least one
of the early settlers, a Mr. Danridge,
who, it is alleged, discovered it while
deer hunting away back in 1830. Ow
ing to the fact that the land on which
it was situated could not be bought. Mr.
Daridge positively refused to fell of
the whereabouts of the ico ledge, and
only visited the place when it was ab
sclutely necessary to obtain a supply to
be used in case of sickness.
The old man died many years ago,
and from that time until 1803 the loca
tion of Danridge's ice mine was un
known, the old gentleman having never
even tal~cn his own family into the se
In the year last mentioned, however,
a party of herb diggers visited the un
frequented region contiguous to Stone
mountain and were fortunate enough to
rediscover the lost ice mine.
During two or three months in the
middle of summer the ice is only pro
tected from the sun's rays by a thick
growth of moss. The formation of the
ice layer is similar to that of a coal
vein, being thin in somte places and
thicker in others, the average thickness
being about four feet. Persons of some
scientific attainments who have visited
the place for the purpose of studying
the wonder say that it has the appear
ance of having been there since the time
of the ice age, which the geologists talk
so much about. Another plausible theo
ry is that somewhere beneath the bed
is situated a great natural laboratory
where ether is constantly formed and
expelled, and that the process of freez
ing is now constantly going on. What
ever view is taken it is one of the great
est natural wonders the state affords.
