The genoral history of this region,
now being prepared by Burton A
Konkle, will cover such eubjocts as
early betterment, county organization,
the oourts, military affairs, railways j

Last night abont 9 o'clock a tele
phone message came to tho city hall
that a negro was croating a disturbance
at Zapadinski's grocery store on South
First street. City Marshal Neill.Polce
man Clay and a News reporter went to
the place and found that a negro boy
named Israel Grant had become of
fended at the proprietor of the store
and out of revenge overturned a lamp
that was on the counter. The lamp
was extinguished before any damage
was done. Failing in his attempt to
burn the store he went outside and
threw a large stone at the proprietor.
He was not captured.
In the change of ownership and
change of editors of our' bright little

is pungent and piquant but never un

always pleasing. We congratulate

Charles Blesslugton Is Assaulted

Yostorday aitornoon Uharles Bles
sington, a son of Sanitary OHioer
Blessington, and an employe of Prado,
tho confeotioner, had his skull broken
by a briok thrown by a nogro. Char
lie was on his way to Edgefield in a
hoky-poky wagon and was aooompa
nied by a friend. On South Fourth
stroet he was mot by a crowd of negro
boys and men, ono of whom was boat
inc a drum. The noise frightened
tho horse tho bovs wero dnvin r and
the companion of Charles got out to
hold him. Just thon a nogro, ono of
tho orowd, approached and asked for
a hokv-Doky and Charles turned
around to get it for him. Just as bo
did ao tho drummor throw a briok, as
far as can bo learned, without any
provocation at all, and hit the boy in
tho wagon a torriblo blow behind the
loft oar. Tho orowd quiokly disporsed
as soon as they saw tho damago that
had been done. Tho other boy whoso,
name could not bo learned, fixed
Charles as comfortable as possible and
drove him homo as rapidly as they
could. Dr. Fosoue was called in and it
was found that tho skull had been
badly fraoturod and that the soalp
had been torn from tho head for sev

An Kiutr Culubriitlon in Athens.
It is lnte on Saturday nij;lit that tho ronl
Ea&ter celebration takus plncu iti Athens.
An immense crowd 1111s nil tho ap
proaches to tho cathedral and such parts
of tho church as aro not kept clear. 'With
out a raised platform has been oiectcd and
decorated with uvergieens.
In the cathedral the royal princes, tho
minister of state and tho IiIkIi function
aries of the kingdom nssembla to attend
tho midnight service. As the hour of mid
night approaches the metropolitan, with
his assistants, preceded by tho cross and
banners, advance with lighted tapers. Tho
various notabilities light their tapers ficvn
that of tho aichbishop, and to tho sacred
fire is communicated to tho crowd.
As the midnight hour sounds and Enstcr
succeeds tho Inst day of Lent tho metro
politan, a blazo of silver and gold, 'with his
tiara, tho silver gospel and liio episcopal
crozier, ascends tho platform outside tho
church and proclaims to tho assembled
peoplo tho tidings, "Chrift has rlMUil"
In 11 moment nil tho bells are ringing far
mid near. Hands of music strike up, guns
nro discharged, rockets nscend, IJengal
fires are lighted and tho uparkle of tapers
spreads fiom house to house, and from
fctreet to btrcet, till tho wholo city is alive
with sound and flame. Tho clergy return
to tho church, and tho Easter ritual con
tinues, long and tedious.
Now tho long fast is over, and tho peo
ple, who for the last two or three days
have tasted no food but bread ntid olives
nnd a littlo black coITce, and who have
many of them on Oood Frldny observed
literally tho rule to sulTer no food to pass
their lips between sunris'o and sunset, aro
released from their probation nud feasting
Fires aro kindled, over which early on
Easter morning the lnmbs nro roasted
whole. The ceremony is over. Only tho
greeting, "Christ has lisenl" nnd tho
answer, "Ho is risen Indeed!" aro in every
mouth. "Customs nnd Lore of Modern

In tho latter halt of the Sixteenth cen
tury tho littlo province of Transylvania
was in a state of revolution and consequent
disorder. Finally there camo n time when
there was no ruler, nnd the Turkish tul
tan sent word to All Pasha, then nt Minos
Viisarliely, that, come what might, n
prlnco of Transylvania must bo elected.
Ali Pasha was in a quandary. lie stood
nt his window, as tho btory runs, meditat
ing upon his sovereign's commands, not
knowing what to do, and yet afraid to do
nothing, when ho baw n tall, strong man
crossing tho market plnce. .
At that time, and especially in that
country, n strong arm was tho best patent
of nobility. At homo All Piishn had seen
tho lowest slaves lifted to places of power,
Ho sent n messenger intothu market place
with instructions to bring tho tall, strong
man into his presence. Tho order was
obeyed, nnd as tho stranger entered he was
greeted with tho words, "You inubt bo
prlnco of Transylvania!"
"I!" exclaimed tho astonished prince
elect, "I! I know nothing about govern
ment! I can't read or write! I um n
"No matter for that," said All Pashn;
"a man may bo an excellent regent though
ho cannot read."
Hut tho butcher was not ambitious, and
"If you wunt a man as princo of Tran
bylvnnin," ho bald, "I can tell you of ouo
who has no equal. If you will, let us go
and find him. I will lead you."
With 600 Turkish horsemen All Pashn
and tho butcher rodo to Malmkrog and
surrounded tho castlo of Michael Apaffl,
whom they hailed at onco as prince, car
ried to Maros Viisarliely, and proclaimed
ns n regent. This was In 1C01, and the
princo thus chosen remained in power un
til his death, in 1C90. Youth's Companion.
