PICKENS S. C
Why He tit Play
ing Pok ler.
?I haven't played a game of pokei
for twelve years," remarked Thomai
R. Shelton, a prommnent business muar
and politiciani of Eastern Kentucky.
I was famishing for a little game my
self, and he saw the signs of my yearn
tug in my face, which impelled him tc
make this avowal.
.1 knew hie had once been extrava
gantly fond of poker, and knowing,
too, when ai man once gets the poker
habit fixed on him that breaking the
morphinie habit is a small task con
pared to it, I was interested to know
the antidote that had cured him.
14 Since I held the winning hand and
lost on a Big Sandy river raft twelve
years ago I haven't touched a deck,
and I'll shuttle oif this mortal coil be
fore I'll shuitle a pack again. The
very looks of cards makes mec shudder,
as it recall: the most horrible ex
perience yIll life has klnown.
" was enigaged, at, the time I
started, in the tilb0er business Onl the
Big Sandy river. I was in partnership
with Joe and Alf. lavis, twin brothers,
and wealthy timber menti of the Big
Sandy valley. We were buying thous
andls of staves, ties and logs along the
Sindy and its tributaries and were
floating them down the Ohio to Cincin
nati. On the occasion of which I
speak we three were on a raft of logs
that we were taking out of Sandy to
the Ohio, and were about fourteeii
miles above t attlesburg, the point of
confliience of the t wo rivers. Alf. pro
posed that we have it miet little game
of poker, and .lot' and I readily assent.
ing, we repaired to a little box shatiy
in the center of the raft where we
slept and ate, and had the cooking
done. 0 .
" Alf, entered the door of the struc
ture first, and, going to his overcoat,
hanging at the opposite side from the
door, he drew therefromi a quart bottle
of . iiu.' , .1 1 i"1:r
' 'Boys,' lie Raid reaching it toward
me, here is a sort of liquor they call
" persimmon ooze." I never saw any
before-never tasted this. Afriend at
Louisa gave it 10 ilt --don't know what
it tastes like, but it'll make the drunk
come like whiskey, they say, if you
take too much of it.'
"'And you take too much of it if
you take a drop,' said I, pushing the
bottle away. 'I've heard of your
l persimmon ooze," Alf. and I heard
nothing good of it. I is a Satanic con
coction, distilled from persimimons,
and from what I've heard, Shake
speare's witches preside where it is
madte. I don't wanlt anly, and1( wouldl
adivise you, if yo ul i to lay poker,
to let it alonie.'
" '(h, one sniter won't hurit a
feler, I know,' he satid laughing.
"' As I refus~ed , he extenlded the
bottle to .l oe.
''AlIf,' I inlt erruiptedl,'dlon't. take that
slu!i, pleas$e. l'romu w hat I heard of
it, It is danigertus.
"'Why?' aisked( Joe, withuirawing
"''Well, it turns a muan's ntature
completely upside dlown. If you arcea

you are muiserable, you have a maniacal

A Alf laughed i:credulously , elevat

we all three had lots of mionley, an<l

the bottle. It met the lid and fell t<
pieces. I now screamed as loudly as J
could. The man who steered the rafl
came running. As he was about en
tering the hut, Alf fired at him with n
revolver. The man ran a few feet and
reeled over the logs into the river.

revolver on me. The first sliot grazed
the left side of my Iead, and badly
powder burned my chenk. lie fired
again, but I disturbed his aiml with
my left arm, and the ball went through
the roof of the cabin. He tried to
shoot again but the pistol snapped.
By this time I got hold of the
skilled lid, and before he could aim
again, I struck him on the side of the
head with such force that he fell sense
less to the floor, wallowing in his own
and his brother's blood.
" I now stopped to examine the ex
tent of .Joe's injuries. Alas! His
skull was broken at the right temple,
and the brains was slowly oozing from
the ugly cleft.
" Now what could I do? One man
was dead sure, the other apparently so,
and the steersman, of course, iloating
down the river, and I would be hung
for the triple murder!
" The distress I suftered for the next
hour passes power of expression, but
you see the blossoms it put forth in

but white inside of a month.
" For several minutes I sat at the
reeking table, my powers of thought
almost gone, and my brain only con
scious of a burden of sickening agony
that weighed down my icy limbs. Fin
ally the striking of the raft against the
side of the bank partially aroused me.
I struggled from my chair and went
out on the logs. 1 went slowly to
the steering apparatus and grasped the
pole. I managed to keep the raft i

men on the grade, and told them my

The most important political cam.

Hampton in his triLiuphant progrsm
through Carolina to have been tlhe
largest, and most enthusiastic meeting
held up to that time, with perhaps
single exception, that of Abbeville it
p)oint of numbers. Mr. Carl McKinley
a gentleman of scholarly at.tainments
who is the author of " An Appeal t<
Pharaoh," was the correspon<tent wh(
report,ed the meeting to the News an(
Courier. There was one feature oi
the meeting of so striking a charaictei
andI which appealed so stronigly to th<i
audience that we allude to it here, ant

" Gen. llampton and the othei
speakers dismountedi from their car
riages and approachedl the stand. Ai
he entered the space between thi
laudies' stands, these rose up and1
showered down flowers upon him anm
before him until the ground beneatii
his feet was carpeted with them. .A
company of lit,tle girls, representinl
all the Stat.es, all clad in white, mel
him half way, and strewedi their flora
offerings in his way.
" But the crowning ceremony wai
reservedl for the last. A fair young
girl, clad in mourning and bound witi
heavy chains, to represent South Care
lina, stood on the verge of thle stage
just where the speakers afterward (10
lvered their addresses. As Gen
i Ilampton approached, and when ever'
eye was fixed upon the two, and whill
he was as yet but a few paces fron
her, at a word and as if by a magica
touch the habiliments of mourning an<
the heavy chains fell from her at once
and she stoodl fort~h before him and thi
i throng clad In garments of snow;
whiteness-a beautiful emblem o
i South Carolina redeemed.
" The drama was well planned, wel
I, executed, and its import recognizei
I and acknowledged by such a burst O
(I enthusiasm and shouting, and wavinj
I of hate and handkerchiefs, and roars o
n cannon as made the scene truly a mos
ie impressive one. As the clank of thi
I falling chains was heard, Gen. Hamp

Secretary Wilson, of the department
of agriculture, in an address before the
American Association of Farmers' In
stitute Workers in Washington, urged
the need of a now system of education.
The training of farmers should begin
in the primary schools. Secretary
\Vilson said1 " our system of education
in this country is old-fashioned. It
was imported from the other side of
the water and is much like the systems
from which it sprang. Colleges were
originally organized to educate preach
era. We do educate doctors, lawyers
and dentists now, but none of our
schools furnish farmers the education
they need. We have agricultural
schools, but they teach nearly every
thing but agriculture. It is almost im
possible to find iistructors who have
knowledge of annnal husbandry, plants
and soils. Consequently the depart
ment of agriculture is compelled to
educate its own specialists at d has
2(;o young men and women who are
learning the things relating to agricul
ture which are not taught in any
schools of the country."
