-A mad dog created considerable excite-1
ment in our town yesterday. The crazy
. anine started from his owner, Mr. L. K. J
SBowle in the country and on his way to
town ho bit every dog that crossed his path.
In town he went from place to place and
semed to take a frenzied delight in bitting
his way through. Several dogs were bitten
and in the afternoon the dog was overtaken 2
by Messrs B. B. Gamble and Ed Windhami 1
In the yard of a celored man and shot to
death. Many people are considerably
alarmed, fearing that the dogs bitten will
also go mad and that the children especially
will be in danger. We know there are
some parents in town who think the coun
eli should provide means to stop dogs from
running at large and we beleive poison will
be scattered about to thin the canine tribe.
As a warning to those who have valuable 3
dogs we would advise them to keep their
dogs off the street.

Ganatt On The Pension :lundter,.
The Headlight entered its Earnest
rotest against the ntew and comapli
ated pension latw introduced and I
rotten through the legislature by Ma-V
or Layton, of Spartanburg, and told
he old soldiers that it would cotmpjli
ate matters, and was much more oh- I
ectionable than the old law. It is now i
liscovered that our prediction was cor-t
ect, and it would have been better
tad Major Layton not attemputed to
neddle with the m:atter at all. From
be following, it will be seen that thet
avton bill is as full of defects as an
:gg is full of meat, atnd the whole
hing is in a terrible tangle. It is not
nown when the old veteratns will get
heir pension money, and this is a -
ery great hardship, as they need it
cost to help them make their crops.t
The following is the report of Comp

Her Jealous Watch Over Her Dead
Henry Ward Beecher was big en
ough to bequeath occupation, repu
tation, importance or notoriety to
quite a number who, in his lifetime
or after it, had, or said they had, the
privilege of his confidence or com
panionship and marked measure of
influence with him. Their pleasur
able role, of which others were not
minded to be envious or criticle, was
not let unchallenged by Mrs. Beecher.
Their assertions were never admitted
by her. Their claims were repelled
and scorned by her. Her estimate
of them showed a veritable jealousy
of the idea that any- human being
should divide with her, or should
even reduce in any degree, her ex
clusive prerogative as the heir, and
as the interpreter of her husband's
fame to the wvorld. In this wvas some
times injustice, but it wvas pardoned
to the pride and loyalty out of which
it sprang. In it, also, however, was
no small amount of historical pro
tection to the memory and measure
of the no~n, for Mr. Beecher was care

Mrs. Beecher's occasional injustice
ts wveil as her general justice, in these
ppraisals should be rated by its mo
ive. The motive was an excuse, in
onsiderate minds, for her wholesale
1css of speech and for her infirmities
>f temper or want of perspective in
undry estimates. It was an exeuse
