TRIALS OF A TICKET MAN.
He Can Endure All but the Questtoe e1
People Who Never Travel.
A prominent Pittsburg passenger
agent, in a conversation with a reporter
of that city, gave a few interesting facts
relative to the everyday experience of
the average city passenger man, whicL
those not directly connected with the
business know nothing about. He said
"It is a singular fact the number of
people who visit our office daily and the
curious questions they ask with regard
to railroad rates, etc., when very often
they have no notion whatever of leaving
s the city and as a matter of fact have not
traveled any worth mentioning. For six
years there has been a very singular char
actor who has made an annual visit to
this office. I have no idea from whence
he cometh or whither he goeth, but he
always asks the selfsame questions and
goes away apparently satisfied with the
information he has received. I always
expect him in the springtime, generally
about the lit of April, when the sun's
rays grow warmer.
"Then my quaint old friend comes to
see me. I should judge him to be at
least 80 years of age. . He is stooped and
feeble, with hair as white as snow, but
well dressed, wears a silk hat and carries
a cane and talks in a nervous, jerky
manner. He invariably opens up with,
'What's the rate to Boston?' I tell him,
and his eyes light up as he waddles out
with always the same observation. 'Well
by gum, that's oheapl cheapt' If theold
man would tell his story, it might have
a tinge of pity in it. Perhaps he has a
son or daughter in the Hub City whom it
has been his cherished hope to see for all
these years,
"The biggest out and out nuisance we
have to deal with are persons who come
here with no other intetii ithan to col
let all the railroad literature they can.
They have no notio of going away, but
thay grab evesything In sight in the way
of time tables and other information
bearing on tourists' points in the north,
east, south and west. They greedily
gather pamphlets, circulars and book.
lets treating on climate and resources.
I don't know what these collectors de
with the stuff they get here, but some of
them must have a prize assortment.
"Then the man who travel, from one
end of the country to the other is the
person who invariably pushes into the
office and in a brusk manner asks for a
time table of the line he Is about to
take. It is given him, of course, and
without so much as glancing at thq
sohedule it is stuffed into his pocket
and his next question is, 'When does m;
first train leave?' It never seems to co
cur to him to look on the time table. 8
it goes. Sometimes people ask me quei
tions until I'm afraid the buttons wil
drop off my coat, but after all we mat
e age to get along with our patrons r
g markably well."-Pittsburg Post,
A Biblical Comuudrums.
A good story is told of the horsy ams
, of an English clergyman. He was on as
important occasion to meet the "bishop o
Lincoln at dinner, and as it was desir
able that a favorable impression shoulN

, god he would be favorable to the bishoT
and do his best to draw him out, as hI
was unusually strong in Biblical lore
During the early part of the banquel
matters went on well enough, the young
man saying little, but watching for at
opportunity to open his full batteries.
At length a pause in the general conver
sation took place, and while the com
pany was all attention he thus addrese
the bishop:
"Might I venture to ask your bordshii
a question relative to a point mentione
-in the Old Testament which has pus~sledl
me a good deal?"
"Oh, certainly-quite happy," replied
the dignitary, feeling quite in his ele
ment.

The taste for short stories, in place of
the ancient three volume novel, has beer

and has become so widespread in thi

in this narrow compass Is a peculiar one
and while there are numerous failure
there are also a surprising number o

April 2, 1894.
Good Friday and Easter has
passed, the former was beautiful,
the latter was sad and foreboding,
a fit day to precede such a destruc
tive freeze, right in the midst of
the loveliest May weather we ever
witnessed in March. Mercury had
been playing between 60 and 85,
just before good Friday, when it
started on its downward course
and did not stay long en rout* un
til it reached 18 above zero, only
lacking a few degrees of being as
low as at any time during the win.
ter. Owing to the extreme spring
like weather vegetation had advan
cod considerably ahead of the sea
son, consequently the freeze came
near making a clean sweep. Indi.
cations are that even the small
berry crop was destroyed, as the
briars were budding to bloom.
The wheat and oat crops appear to
be badly damaged. The farmers
were getting in a great hurry tc
plant, but the cold put a quietui
on their ambition.
J. H. Brown lost a fine oow las
week.
It seems the demand for fertili
zers has exceeded the supply at thi
point, and still cotton goes dowr
the prospect is good for a crop o
five cent cotton, so plant I plant!
Just at day-break this morning
J. D. Smith's barn was discoverec
to be on fire, and was destroyed
together with a quantity of fodder
hay, &c. As some of the boya
were feeding when the fire was di.
covered they saved the mules and
cattle and a few things from .un.
der the shelters. No insurance,
loss upwards of $500.
To-day looka more spring like
than for several days, but the wheat
and oats are making very little
show of improvement.
The little war at Darlington
seems to give those ranting heroes
(Tillman haters) another oppor
tunity to curse and rear, like there
was -not two side. to the case, and
all parties in fault, and thousands
of lies told to boot. While they
are censuring Tillman there is toms.

TUE WAR OVER.
special to she GreeawVi Mews
DALINGToN, April $.-Spy Me
London has been located after be
ing missing for 8 days. He is not
seriously wounded and is now at the
house ot Colonold Woodham, ox
Confederate soldier and Tilhman
ite, living at Stokes' Bridge. A war
rant has been issued for him and
and two deputies, C. W. Milling
and J. C. Baokwell sont to servo it
mounted on fast horses. They
were instructed to procod hastily
and failing to got the man return
with speed. Information brought
in early in the afternoon by Dr.
Wallace, a resident of Stokos'
bridge, a Tillmanite, but said he
deemed ithis duty to tell where Me
London was, as he had escapod from
jail charged with a serious crimo.
Ho told Mayor Dargan that
Colonel Woodham had the assist
ance of a large number of Till I an
ites who promised in case tho ]) r
lington people should attempt to
take McLendon away that they
would be led by Col.Woodham and
had arms and ammunition. The
Mayor told Dr. Wallace he wanted
friends and foes to know he had no
desire for anything but justice in
demanding the apprehension that
justice must be accorded. At the
suggestion of Dr. Wallace he sent
his views in writing to show to the
people to prevent a clash.
His statement is as follows: "To
all our friends in this County and
in any other that represent the
people of Darlington, I most oar
neatly request that no violence bo
done to any constable, and most
especially to wounded Constable
McLendon.
"W. F. DARGAN, Mayor.',
This Wallace took with him to
exhibit to the conservatives and
Tillmanites and was asked to coun
L al people to refrain from any do.
monstration in behalf of the Dar
lington people.
s Matters were in process of ad
justment and the mayor hopod t(
f see peaceful consummation o
trouble. The deputies carryinp
the warrant left town quietly witl
their mission unsuspected. Only
a few of mayor Dargain's friendi
and two or three newspaper men
knew of it.
General Richbourg was not in.
formed, and was not to be, unless
McLendon's friends refused to give
him up, when Dargan would ask
for military help. He will request
that a Tillman company of muilitai
ry be sent to enforce the lawv, which
the Tilimanites are breaking.
This will throw all responsibility
on the governor and his frien.
Dargan promised, through depu
ties that McLendon would ho pr~o
tooted if put in jail hero and that
they might accompany prisoner
here if they chose. The deputies
had twenty miles to go to Stokes>
bridge, and having loft at half past
fotar this afternoon, aro hardly ex
pected before midnight. It begins
to look as though ta-morrow wvould
bring some complication.
COLUMBIA, 8. 0., April 3 -For
the first time since the troubles
began Governor Tillman rode
through the streets of Columbia
to-day and went to tho execu
tive office at the State house
On his arrival there, standing
with bared head on the northorn
porticqo of the building, ho ad
dressed 400 troops and voluntoor
citizens. TIhe speech was re
ceived with tumultuous cheor
ing by the men The troops all
left the city to-day on regular
trains, transportation bomng
provided at State expenses. Ton
minutes before noon the guards
were moved from the telegraph
offices and their annoying es
poenage ceased. This gave the
city the first realization that
peace was returning and every
body breathed more freely. A

FLORENCE I EXCITED.
The Nen Who Took the Armory
Guns Arrested.
FLORENCE, S. C., April 4.-The
citizens of Florence havo been
greatly startled by the annouce
ment that the men who took the
guns from the armory hero Fri
day last and participated in the
pursuit of the constables would
bo arrested by the militia. There
was a disposition, at first, to re
sist but the mild methods adopt
ted by the officers induced the
men to acquiesce in the action
taken. The men who took the
guns were summoned to the.
courthouse where Colonel N. Ct
Evans, commanding in the ab
.senco of General Farley, had
established his headquarters.
They assembled there about
10 a. in. and conferred with
Colonel Evans and Major Joseph
Wardlaw; they were asked for
their names and a roll was made.
l'ho roll was then read with the
request that those who had en
tored the armory and taken
guns would respond as their
nmios were called.
The following five men re
