PICKENS S. C
The county courtroom of St. Anne
was crowded to the door. It was a
sesemblage unprecedented oven in th
country Where a trial for murder a
ways exercised an irresistible faseini
tion, and where the allurements of ok

The tension was acute as the mi

' furiously begun, when his words were

I. if twenty lives and pardons could make 1

said, "s we might as well go back."
f The assemblage was quiet for a mo. I
-wment and then someone with a finer I
3 appreciation of dramatic effect t,an i
I decorum proposed three cheers and the
hail rang with instant clamor. It was I
an uproar too vast for the efforts of
the court ollicials to suppre9s. It was 1
1 the glorification of what was regarded
as undoubted perjury and of a convict
i ed murdorer----but of one who had be

- he had shielde(I and screened the
woman who had betrayed him.
She did not even give him a glance
as he was led out. 1Ier whole soul
was concentrated in the expression of
smiling insolence with which she fa.
vored the outraged prosecutor. It was
a smile that later became a badge of
triumph as the twelve good men and
true delivered the verdict of acq uittal
that enabled her to leave the %tourt
room---an Innocent Proclaimed. It
should be added, however, that there
was a disposition to enlarge upon the
theme of ingratitude among the groups
that delayed to gossip in the courthouse
yard and that in the evening the gentle
men of the jury called upon the vinli
cated widow and suggested the alvishi
lity of her prompt departure from St.
Anne's.
And two weeks later the county seat
again became a Mecca. It was the
(lay set for expiation, and the natives
had begun to jog into town hours be
fore sunrise. There was something
more than mere morbid curiosity in the
throng that clustered about the little
jail yard, and swarmed over the hill
side at its rear, and the belief that
Thome in his last scene would prove
worthy of the prest,ige he had earned
was full realized. It was a crowd that
a lingered thoughtfully long after justice
d had been done and that nodded ap
provingly at an observation of the
sheriff's.
" Gentlemen,'' said that utlicer, it I
do not propose to deduce any morals
on this sad occasion, but what 1 do in

- IT IS L.ACK OF KN lVI.1',Du,
The kguorance I'revnalent at
td
the North inl Regard to tIe
i. South.
M Ir. Win. P. Calhoun, of ( reenville,
.C., contributes the following timely
to article t,o the Augusta (2Chronichl:
se It Is very annoying to tihe p)eople of
Sthe South to see how little our Nort.h
1ern and Western people know about,
us.
It is not, strange that men living in
the backwoods of the N orth and WVest
to should show ignorance of the South
an lis)eople; butt, itsurpasseshu
man understai'ding to account, for t4,e
cewant of knowledge, mi soine cases
Samounting to actual ignoranlce, among
well iniformed Norlthernl antd WVestern
alphress and Southierni meon know more1 of
ied the N orth and W est, as a rule, than
ie- t.he latter know of' the for'mier, and1. can
write and speak more int.elligently of
Northern and Western men01 and mat
ters. Yet, our wvell inforied friends
iand nilIeighibors5 of the North aund West
asum i super'iorit,y over us that. is
3ci - very amusing. They interfere in our
vasfairs and1( act.ually dictate to us. ini
so1 doinig L.hey only t oo often show
their want of knowledge of the South.
Somec of our Northedrn 11en1 anid paper01s
"acan give about, as good a descripi on
of of the South and its peop1)1 as the lit
' tce boy (lid inl his 'ompIjositonI abouit
he tihe horse, wvhich in substance was that
be0 the h(orse wa's a very useful1 animal
re wvith one leg at each cornier, a tail on
0, 01)e end andI a head on the other.
r, We are a useful p)eop)le n sonme ro
il, spIects, it is admitted, but, generally
m~ speaiking we are a lot, of ignoi amuhses
d( that have no idea howv to conduct our
Y- own aiffairs. Th'e foregoing has boon
10 recently emphasized ini the miatt.er of
Ithe stat.us of the negro at the South
and how we ought to treat and( man.
n' age him, and in whlich great ignlorane
0 as8 to the fact,s in the ciise are shown.
Oi ur superior fellow citizens are at
10 timnes dogmatic and intolerant anid
Sknow the facts better thanl we 00; and
they ask us to " toe " their mar'k. I
g have come to the conclusion that most
I- Northern men and newspapers are in
di need of a Southern mani to dlirect
them, and each paper shiold provide
6 itself with an intelligent Sout,heirn man
g in its sanctum to tell it somnething1
iabout the South whlen its editor do
(I sires to direct or crit,icise us. In that
P way so many evidences of want of
I knowledge would not appear.
ir 1t seems incredible that an intelli.
ii genit man in New York, twenty--four
i. hiours from Greenville, should be so
is little Informed about matters inl South
s- Carolina and in the South generally as
(I Is some times the case. Last winter,
'an intelligent man from Providence,
RUft. 1., caine to Greenville on his first
yvisit South. He came with a friend
w who had been South many times and
eh knew our people and our climate. He
se stated to the writer that he had had
I's trouble to make his friend bring an
overcoat, with him, he claiming that he
," knew all about the Southern. climate
Jo and that an overcoat would not be
a needed. Oni reaching Greenville, that
et, wise man found the weather very cold,
ly and he was surprised beyond measure.
s HIe thought that it was all "summer"
is here, lHe had never dreamed that the
thermometer some times went ddwn
y to aero and even below, lie wrote
mt that news back home as a great dis.
g covery just made by him in advance of
. all other enporers. The fact that ..m
had deep enow hero was a wonderful
revelation to him.
All along the line you will find the
same unaccountable ignorance on the
part of Northern and Western men
bout the South.
Before the North and West under- t
lake to criticipe and direct the South s
and in order that they may write in
elligently of us, they must banish an- v
ient and preconceived ideas about the I
South. A small amount of research a
Vould put the North in possession of v
he real truth. Now comes the Ogden '1
lducational league, full of good in- (
entions and philanthropy, with a b
cheine to spread education among the r(
enighted masses of the South regard- I
ess of race and color. The lengue
nueans well but its movements show
hat it has no intelligent idea of the
it.uition as regards the two races. 'lhe
If'orts of the league will do far more
arin than good by reason of the fact a
hat it does not, know how to direct ti
is movements and efforts. The league Ii
iould come here and study the situa
ion antI consult with men conversant a
with it, men who would tell it, plainly s
hat the Southern people will stomach i
o scheme, however plausible, that
,ontemplates mixing the Caucasian
tnd the negio in any way. If the s
eague understood the situation, it n
would not have held a love feast at the, t
University of (corgia and then
atraight,way held another at Tuskegee, t
the school of Booker Washington. In- 1
i,ance after instance could be shown
on the above lines showing how little
our Northern and Western friends and I
neighbors know of us and our affairs, i
t,houghts and inclinations.
A ROMANCH OF CALI,FODRN1A
Generni tl Slhelrrini' SwC t elthert
Waited in Va1 U pon 1 If IN
P'ronuise.
Monterey, once the capital of Cali.
fornia, contains many ancient build
inigs, 0dobe houses and bits of history.
Overlooking the intensely-blne bay is
the old Spanish custom house, with
the very flagstaff of historical signill
cance. This building was originally
erected by the Spanish, and afterwards
successively added to by Mexico and
the United States. The building is
two story, with wide overhanging
eaves, and its creamy-white plastered
walls contrast pleasantly with the dull
red titles and mossy shingles of the
roof. There is a cool, shady porch
running along the front, where fisher
men are wont to mend their nets, or
lounge about smoking or telling yarns.
Oin a little back street is a tumble
down building, very long and narrow,
with the old stage upon which Jenny
Lind sang in 1851. Back among the
pines is San CUarlos Mission, built by
Junipero Serra in 1770, in which may
be seen the church ornaiunts and the
priests' robes wrought in gold and sil
ver embroidery. These and many
other historic places could be mention
ed, but most, interesting is the house
where Mercedes (astro was wooed by
(en Sherman. More interesting be
cause she still lives her solitary life
behind thn high, vhitewashied, tile
covered stone0 wall which shuts in her
ilower garden fromi (lie street. and t,he

Glen. Sherman was then a young man,
and lie met Mercedies and1( (lickly sue
cuImbed to her charmis. Their wm,oingv

ing nature had implicit faith in him,
and he worshiped at, the shrine of her
beauty. Oni a certaml evil day he was
ordleredl lEast, and when lie told her
they must, part her heart was almiost
broken. TLo somewhat lessen her grief
lie p)lant.ed a small slip of irose bush,
known as the t2loth ol Gold, at thie left
of her doorway, andit, covering it, with
earth, smd:l " W hen this rose hush
blooms I wIll retur'n and make Mier
cedes Castro my bride.''
Years passedi, the little rose slip
flourishedl aiid t,wined its beautiful
braniches arounid l.he l atticedl 'rbor.
hiercedes livedi happ)Iily wv ih her mioth

sweethieart. Al ways fond of flowers,

Al. hist she thought she saw some
buds(1, and( eveni with her careful watch
mug the peitals seemedC( to unlfohl before
she knew into golden-yellow blossoms,
just as if they hadi' beeni touched by
some1 of the sun's rays. Still she wait
ed expectanitly (lay b>y (day.
How 50oon was her young heart made
to feel the pangs of sorrow, for he in
wvhom she had such plerfect faith had
easily forgotten his promiise so thought,
lessly given?
Gen. Sherman retulrned to Mfonterey
when the rose bush81 bloomed, but, lie
brought wIth him his American wife.
Again years passed, Mercedles Castro
wals niow a woman111 aind devoted to her
nothier. Many suitors souIght her
innd(, but none received her favor. At
ast came oneO of her own race who had I
dlifferenlt aspect from the others, andl "
e0 loved her so long and so truly that i
he almost relented, but decided0( to re
cir it to her mother. The elder lady,
ot being desirous of losing her daugh- t
or, stronigly objected. So Mercedes:
owedh tbat so long as hier' mother lived
lie would not marry. After the moth
r's (leath she yielded to her lover's
~ntreaties, and1( the (lay for their wedl- 2'

nan dIed. 6
I longed to visit, the 01(1 house and( L~

louse is a long, low, whitewashed t
itructure, anid in the rear as well as in
fron0t is a very pretty lower garden,,
aontaing all the old-fashioned Ilow- 1C
ars that, our grandmot,hers loved. I fta
notIced the Sheiman rose bush as I I

Its trunk, or stem, as noar as I could

Perhaps your mother
had thin hair, but that is
no reason why you must
go through life with half
starved hair. If you want
long, thick hair, feed it
with Ayer's Hair Vigor,
and make It rich, dark,
and heavy.
