THEIR EFFORTS IN VAIN.
Two Hundred Misdirected Lttera of Men .
Inclined to Flirt.
There appeared recently in an At
anta paper a letter addressed to
Captain Connolly the chief of police,
and signed by a young lady who rep
resented herself to be Miss Annie
Earnhill, of Kock Hill, a G The let
ter was highly sensational in its char
acter, and was in the nature of an
effort on the part of the young lady in
question to obtain a husband. It was
modestly written and the verbiage
The effect of such a letter on a large
community of bachelors and widowers
was easy to be imagined. The letter
was no sooner printed and read than
the brilliant opportunity became the
prevailing topic of conversation.
Nearly every one who was in a posi
tion to give the letter consideration
decided that an answer would at least
do no harm, and possibly a great bo
nanza, a "capital prize" in the lottery
of life might be the result.
Quietly a large number of individ
uals sat down and proceeded to indite
a reply to the fair creature of South
Carolina Unhappily, however, in
stead of addressing their letters to
Rock nill they were all addressed to
Eose IlilL This' was due to a typo
graphical error, and instead of going
to their intended destination in the
Palmetto state, they were rudely
turned aside into the dead letter office
of Uncle Sam at Washington city.
Two hundred of these letters were
turned into the dead letter office the
TREES IN CHURCH.
A Carious Little Story With Respect to
the "Man of Ross.
Trees are common enough in church
yards, but a tree inside a church is
somethinr of a rarity. A correspon
dent, hotNcver, informs us that there
are two trees growing inside the old
church of Ross of H ere fort! shire.
They sprang up rrsar the seat for
merly occupied by a man named John
Kyrle, who acquired fame and distinc
tion many years ago by expending a
modest fortune in works of public use
fulness. These chiefly took the form
of planting elm trees in his native
town, in order to brighten and im
prove its appearance a work which
has since been carried on and exten
ded by the Kyrle society. In conse
quence of these operations Kyrle be
cume known as the "Man of Rtrss."
Many years later it was found nec
essary to cut down some of the elm
trees near the church, and a curious
thing then happened. Immediately
after the trees were destroyed two
elm trees sprang up inside the church
close to the seat which the "Man of
Efs" ued to occupy wlien he atten
ded divine service there- The trees
were allowed to grow in this strange
spot, and may still be seen by visitors
to the town.
"There is but one step from the
sublime to the ridiculous." A short
time ago, at a penny reading in a
Small country town, a young gentle
man was reciting much to his own sat
isfaction, if not that of his audience,
Macaulay's well-known "Battle of
Ivry." With great military form ho
was thundering out the lines:
"A thousand spurs are gtrikiag deei,
A thousand spears in rest;
A thousand knights are pressing close
when a voice from the back seats was
heard to shout: "Old 'ard, guvnor.
Why, that's only a spur apiece for
them 'ere knights!"

The late William Young Sellar, pro

was much beloved by his pupils, and
had generally an exemplary patience
with dullness and stupidity. We are
told, however, that one day the per
verse impenetrability of a blockhead
was so intolerable that the professor
at last cried out: "Sir, in translating
that passage 3-ou have made more mis
takes than there are words.'
