Everyone is Going to Attend
the One Great State
'he Day of Proxperity to be Celebrated.
'ThI:e Tidin;:s From Columbia for the
Fair on October ZI to 27, Inclusive.
Vith the continued prosperity
that is now blessing this State there
is every indication that the State
Fair for 1905 will be more largely
attended than ever before in its his
torv. Last year the South Carolina
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Societv celebrated its annual Fair
at its new home in the southern su
burb of Columbia. As is usually
the case. there were some little de
tails that could not be finished for
the holding of the last Fair, but
President Guignard has had a full
year in which to have all of these
rough spots smoothed out, and the
outlook is that never before in its
history will the State Fair have a
more succeesful Fair than that
which is to be held here on October.
24th. 25th, 26th, and 27th. inclusive.
The inquiry for space at the
grounds, as well as from small ex
hibitors, indicate a very general ap
preciation of the value of such ex
fiibits. A great deal of interest is
being shown in the mechanical de
vices- for use in agricultural pur
suits. From the inquiries that have
been received there will be quite a
number of labor-saving devices ex
hibited. and, of course, all up-to
date farmers want to see these
There is, however, a far more in
teresting phase of the State Firs
than the mere exhibits in the build
ings on the ground, and that is the
opportunity for intercourse between
the people of the State that the
State Fair offers.

CHATEAUBRiAND IN LONDON
A Picture of the English -Capital of
a Century Ago.
"All the English are mad by nature
or by .fashion," Chateaubriand writes
nonchalantly in the book of his em
bassy in London (1821), but he had a
very gay -time with the same lunatics.
We hear of dinners. Almack's and le
beau monde. "The day was thus dis-1
tributed in London: At 6 o'clock in thel
morning one hastened to a party of
pleasure, consisting of a breakfast in
the country; one returned to lunch in
London; one changed one's dress to
walk in Bond street or Hyde park; one
dressed again to dine at 7:30; one
dressed again for the opera; at mid
night one dressed once more for an
evening party or rout What a life of
enchantments! I should a hundred
times have-prefei-red the galleys." One
smiles and reads on. He found London
full.of recollections of Bonaparte. "The
Ipeople had passed from the vilification
of 'Nick' to a stupid enthusiasm. His
colossal- bust-by Canova decorated the
Duke of -Wellington's staircase."
At an evening party at Lord London
derry's, the English premier. "I was
presented by his majesty to a severe
looking lady seventy-three years old.
She was dressedin crape, wore a black
veil like a diadem on her white -hair
and resembled a queen who had abdi
cated her throne. She greeted me in a
solemn voice with three mangled sen-,
tences from the 'Genie du Christian
Isme;' then she said to me. with no less
solemnity. 'I am Mrs. Siddons.' If she
had said to me, 'I am Lady Macbeth,' I
should have believed her."-John J,

The railroad rates are always
cheaper for the State Fair than at
any other time, and more people
come to Columbia duringgFair
Week than during any other of the
fifty-two weeks of the year. In fact,
pretty much everybody who is any
body in South Carolina is here dur
ing Fair Week. Relatives, friends
and acquaintances from all parts
of the State gather in Columbia to
talk about the joys and sorrows of
the year. and to join in the festivi
ties.' It is the one week that is given
up almost entirely by the people of
the State towards having a good
time. and the family gatherings and
reunions that have already been
planned for the coming Fair Week
all go to show that this custom at
each succeeding State Fair is being
more emphasized than ever.
One of the particular attractions
for a great many folks will be the
fact that the 65o cadets of Clemson
College will be encamped here dur
ing the entire Fair Week. They
will give dress parades and drills
each day while here, and will have
ample time in which to mingle wi'th
their friends. '
A great many people in this
State now are taking a keen interest
in football. Two of the best games
of the year are played here during
each Fair Week. In one of these
games the team of the South Caro
lina College participates, and in the
other Clemson College engages.
Both of these teams are strong and
manly, and two exciting games are
to be expected.
The southern territory is devel
oping a very strong horseracing
field. More and better horses are
brought here to participate in the
races. The finest racetrack in'this
territory is at the State Fir
Grounds, and it has been esb

our meals In the open air," writes a
traveler to Morocco. "I see the shep

ful distance. To them we must seem
no better than savages. In the first
place, we sit on chairs and not on the
ground. We cut our bread, which, as
every true believer knows, is a wicked
act and defies Providence, since bread
is from Allah and may be broken with
the hand, but never togghed with a

washing are common property. We do
not have water poured out over our

If it were only summer I'd go off on

One evening at the club be made Al

up a ctair and sat down. They were
alone, and as Page laid his paper aside
"Do you know, I am getting abso
lutely tired and sick of doing nothing.
Ever since I left college I've been an
idler, and I can't say I'm enjoying it.
I arise in the morning and wonder how
I can manage to get through the day.
I read the papers, go down to the store,
up to the club, down to your office,
back to the club to lunch and maybe
play pool for an hour or two with
some poor devil as lonesome as I am

I am sick of It. I want you to let me

Albert looked at him a moment,
while an amused smile crept over his
"Do you know what that means?"
he responded at last. "Do you know
that to read law means two years per
haps of close application and perse
verance? In my case I had the spur
of necessity to urge me on, and even
with that stimulus it was a 'dry, hard
grind. With you, who have all the
money you need and are likely to, it
will be much worse. I respect 'your
feelings, and I admire your determina
tion very much, and of course do not
wish to discourage you. You are more
than welcome to my office and law
books, and I will gladly help you all I
can," and then, after a moment's re
flection, he added, "I believe it's a wise
step, and I'll be very glad to have you
with me. You can help me out in a
good many ways also that will ad

pleasure that came into Frank's face.
"I had half expected you would try
to discourage me," said he, "and It's
very kind of you to promise to help
"Why shouldn't I?" answered Page.
"I owe you a good deal more than-that,
my dear boy, and when you have been
admitted we will go into a partnership
if you want to do it."
'iHere's my hand on it," said Frank,
rising. "and I mean it, too, and if you
will have patience with -me ni stick

over. "When may I begin?" he said

"Well, to be exact, it came to me in
the parlor of your house In Sandgate
just at dark the last evening I was
there, and a remark your sister made
to me was the cause of it"

at this fratnk admission, but he made

morning, Albert set him to work and
gave him all possible encouragement.
"I think far more of you, Frank," he
said earnestly, "for this resolve, and

glad you took hold. I believe every one
in this world is happier and healthier
for having an occupation, and certain

It was soon after Frank's new depar

letter from her brother, and that, to
gether with the mild excitement of
Sunday churchgoing, was all that
broke the monotony of her life..
A week after the Christmas visit she
received a package containing a new
book, three of the latest popular songs
and a box ;f candy, and pinned to the
candy Frank Nason's card, on the back
of which was written, "For the girl
who wanted to kiss her teacher."
She wrote a polite note of thanks. It
was midwinter and two weeks after
her brother wrote that Frank had be
gun studying law in his office when she
received a letter from that young man
that surprised her. Ile wrote:
My Dear Miss Page-I trust you will
pardon me for intruding myself upon you,
but I wish you to know that a few point
ed words spoken by you while I was en
joying your hospitality have not been for
gotten and have influenced me to make
an effort to be something better than an.
Idler in the world. Your brother kindly
consented to let me read law In his office,
and I am now hard at It. I do not imag
ine this will interest you, but I felt that
you had scant respect for useless people,
and as you could rightly so regard me I
wanted you to know that I am capable of
rising above my aimless life.
I have recalled so many times all the
little incidents of my visit to your home
and lived over those evenings graced by
your presence and lit by a cheerful fire
time and again. Do not think me iniin

the most delightful ones I ever passed.

like these made her feel she was what
she most enjoyed being-an inspiration

Frank Nason had read her better than
shd had read him, or else some fortu
nate intuition had led him aright. She
answered the letter at once, thanking
him for. his flattering words, liut for
bidding him to use any more of them.
"I do not like flattery," she wrote,
"because no one ever can feel quite
sure it is sincere. I will answer all

that I am ashamed of it by any means,
but he is inclined to tease me, and I

candy to was both astonished and grate

the fact would have been all over town
in a week if I had, and I do not like to
be gossiped about. I merely told her a
good' fairy had sent it, which was bet
Once a week thereafter Alice re
eived a long letter from Frank and as
regularly answered it.
"Frank is getting along nicely," Al
bert wrote Alice in the early spring.
"I believe he has the making of a ca
pable lawyer in him. He grinds away
harder than I ever did when reading
law and has never yet complained of
how dry and dull it all is. He is a big,
warm hearted fellow, too, and I am
growing more fond of him every day.
He is more devoted to me than a broth
er, and we have made a lot of plans
for a month's outing on the Gypsy this
coming summer. I like his family very
much, and Mrs. Nason and both her
daughters have invited me to bring
you down when your school closes to
make them a visit. I think I shall run
up in June and stay' over Sunday and
bring Frank with me. I imagine he
would like to come, for once In awhile
I overhear him humming 'Ben Bolt'"
"A very nicely worded little plot. but
don't you imagine, my dear Bert, I do
not see through It!" was the mental
comment of Alice when she read the
letter. "The young gentleman has
bravely set to work to become a man
instead of a cipher. My brother likes
him; he whistles 'Ben Bolt;' my broth
er is to bring him up here agaiP: I am
expected to fall in .'ove with Mr. Ci
pher that was and help him spend his
money, and I am to be barely toler
ated by mamma and both sisters! A
most charming plot. surely, but it takes
two to ma~ke a bargain. I think I
know just the sort of people mamma
and sisters are. He told me she read
him a lecture every time he danced
twice with a poor girl, and now I am
expected to walk into the same trap
and cringe to her ladyship for the sin
of being poor. I guess not! I'll teach
school till I die first, and he can think
of m'e as having a 'slab of granite iso
gray' to keep me in place."
But this diplomatic "Sweet Alice"
wrote to her brother: "I am delighted
that you are cominlg up, for I am so
lonesome, and the weeks drag so hard!
Bring your friend up. by all means,
and I'll sing 'Ben Bolt' till he hates
the name of Sweet Alice. The country
will be looking fine then, and he can
go over to the cemetery and select the
corner I am to occupy. Pardon the
joke, and don't tell him I uttered it."
To Frank she wrote: "Be sure to
come up with Bert I will sing all the
old songs and the new ones you have
sent me as well. If you come up on a
Thursday you may visit my school
Friday afternoon, and then you can
see the girl you sent the candy to. She
wears a calico pinafore and comes to
Alice's tactful reply to her brother's
letter, coupled with his own sincere
affection for her, brought her a re
spose by return mail in the form of a
check for $100, with explicit orders to
spend every cent of it before he came.

may sometimes fear that you will for
get it. Let such fears forever rest
He won't let you. He will follow you,
asking you If you have your parasol
when he sees it in your hand or if you
know the way out when he has just
told it to you. The whole poor popula
tion of Venice Is absolutely naif in its
exhibition of a desire for any small
sum of money tha passerby may throw
it The children, one and all, make a
demand for a soldino as a matter of
course. It Is a sort of greeting to ev
ery foreigner casually as a phrase of
Coming from the bath you fee the
girl who has charge of the bathhouses.
If you don't she has a dozen ways of
making herself disagreeable next time
you come. And do not allay your trou
bled anticipations by the thought she
may not reedgnize you. One glimpse
of a face fixes it in her memory for
months. After that you fee the wom
an who takes care of your purse and
jewelry. If you fee her enough- she
drags out from some inner - recess a
cheap mirror which distorts your coun
tenance and allows you to look into it
and see how truly hideous the human
visage can be made to appear. Before
the bath you have to fee the old wom
an who gives you your bathing suit
If you neglect her the next time you
come she will give you a suit that
doesn't fit you or Is full of holes.
When you go out on the terrasse for
a black coffee, which costs 10 cents,
you fee the waiter. When you get into
your gondola you fee the old man xav
draws it close to thesteps with a hook
ed stick and offers you his withered
old arm to lean on. When you get out
of your gondola at the hotel you fee
another old man with- a hooked stick
and a withered arm. And then at din
ner, if you haven't just .feed the wait
er he will be cross, and up in your room
afterward if the femme de chambre
has not recently had a tip she will re
fuse to answer the bell-San Francisco
WHERE UNCLES RULE.
Peculiar Custom That Prevails In
Uncles rule' among the native tribes
bordering Torres strait, where the re
lationship between maternal uncle and
nephew is regarded as being closer
than that between father and son.
There a man is bound to stop fighting
when ordered to do ',o by his mother's
brother, and the uncle is entitled to bid
his sister's husband cease any hostili
ties in which he may be engaged.
Moreover, the quelled combatant Is re
quired to make a present to the uncle
or brother-in-law, as the case may be,
who stops him.
When a man marries in .these parts
his father provides the wherewithal to
purchase the bride, but It is the mater
nal uncle who makes the actual pay
ment and who acquires the credit at
A man in those parts may not utter
the names of his wife's relations, and
when he speaks to his father or moth
er-in-law he must lower his voice and
speak humbly, the underlying idea be
ing probably a pretense that he has
carried his spouse away forcibly from
her home and must sue for peace.

Menzel and Meissonier.
A pathetic scene occurred between
Meissonier and Menzel in 1867. Men
zel's reputation had already been
spread througb the world' as his pic- t
tures of Frederick the Great and his s
court and of Wellington and Blucher E
at Waterloo had been placed high In I
the list of the greatest historical paint- r
ings. Meissonier regarded him as the
foremost of German painters, and Men,
zel considered Meissonier the most ad
mirable of modern artists. When they
met in Paris just after the Austro
Prussian war each struggled vainly in
his own language to tell the other of c
this admiration, but the failure was I
co'mplete. After having exhausted all
the possibilities of signs and grimaces
without reaching an understanding
they fell in each other's arms and ex
pressed their opinions by means of sev
eral hearty hugs.
Where He Mfade HiU Money.
Years ago a gentleman settled in the
south of England and became verY
popular in the neighborhood. The coUn
ty families could never discover how
he had made his money, but were sat
isfied by his solemn assurance that it
was not In trade. Xothing could ex
ceed the ordinary gravity of his de
meanor, which, indeed, caused him to
be placed on the commission of peace,
but now and then, without any appar
ent provocation, he would burst Into
such a laugh as no one ever heard be
fore except in one place.
Where they could have heard it puz
zled the county families for five and
twenty years, but at last he was be
trayed unconsciously by his own grand
child, who after a visit to a triveling
circus innocently exclaimed, "Why,
grandpa laughs just like the clown!"
