Mr. H. T. Edens, a well known
native of Marlboro, but now u
resident of the "game cock"
county of Suinter, came over
Saturday morning via Cheraw
rather circuitous route, hut
he could not help it, as he was
riding in a 1500 pound "steam
carriage" that was not built to
travel in Pee Dee swamp, and
after losing Friday afternoon
trying to get from Society Hill
to the old "cow track*' road, he
invoked blessings on all the
"good road'- builders, returned
to the "Hill" and "let out" for
Cheraw, the next ci"- sing over

came along and said, '"Tie ears
of corn to the top of poles a

won't stay nigh it."
I -said, "They will eat the
corn, and you and tlfy will
both laugh at me."
I tried tlie plan, however,
and sure enough they looked at
these poles and went away and
stayed away. 1 suppose it was

A poetical writer declares that
jonie men move through life, as
i band of music moves down
;he street, Hinging out pleasure
in every side, through the air
o everjr one, fur and near, that
jan listen. Some men lill the
lir with their strength and
sweetness, as the orchards in
October days fill the air with
the delicious odor of the ripe
Some women cling to their
iiomes like tho honeysuckle
3ver the door; yet, like it, fill
ill the reign with the subtle
fragrance of their goodness.
How great a bounty and bless
ing it is to hold the royal gifts
jf the soul so that they shall be
music to some, fragrance to
jthers, and life to all. Would
it not be a worthy thing to live
for, to make the power we
