young wife, who wub I'hocliu Doug
Ins of Richmond. Vu., emigrated to
South Carolina prior to the Re/olu

town of Hodges now stands. They
$?ro the first Bettlers of that vicinity,
having bought u tract vjf land, a |mr
tlon of the English grant to Salvador.
This tract comprized one-fourth of
the lands of Abbeville County, and
for a great many years was known as
''The Jew's Lando.i'
;'v At that time the lands of the coun
try wore covered In. virgin forest
growth. The woods w sra the home of
.Wild animals and well fllylcd with
ganio of ovary description, while the
streams abounded in fish of all kinds.
Gen. Hodges, with his contemporar

ively engaged in war againBt the

Gen. H?riges had decided to visit ills
family. Going to th" army stable lie
saddled his horse, placing Home car
tridge in hi? pocket, with a warm
handshake from Oen. Gillium he wan
ready for his homeward trip.
He mounted his steed and with one
wild leap horse and rider disappeared
around a bend in the road. For a while
the horse kept Geii. Hedges busy, lie
reared und plunged and was all
the rider could do to keep In the sad
dle. At lust the animal settled down
into n swift gallop, t'en. 1 lodges' gray
eyes smiled pleasantly as he adjusted
himself in his sent und thought of his
far away loved tines.

figures had hcurd the hurry of hoofs
oxer this lone country, swlft-fotted
ly they had followed the sound and
discovered the horsemun as he sped
by their pluee of cronceulment. As he
crossed u small stream he did not
see the lurking ligures as they follow
ed him. At last the cheerful lights of
homegleamed through the foliage. A
call whistle familiar to the Hodges
family brought four euger, expectant
faces to the doorway. Soon husband
and wile w??rc in loving embrai e. "Dut
what Is that!" An arrow with deadly
aim came whizzing thru the air fol

What v.-.is tin; poor lovely creature to
No help at hand save a painted sav
age who was demanding the holiest
and sweetest thing a woman could
give a woman'h wonderful love. Here
In the hands of the murderers of her
father, in the presence of his lifeless
body lied with mother and sisters in a
houst which was soon t<> be consumed
in fi?mes, could one dream or air. thing
worse? Her only rescue from the im
per Slug doom was to swear that she
would ever love, cherish and obey and
keep in sickness and in health a na
tural enemy and the murder of her
father, mother ami two sisters, if only
her brothers might come, but they
were tin away, not dreaming of a
wrecked and ruined home. The exul
Ulori of the demoniac fields over the
grief and heart-rending exclamations
of these defenseless and distressed
creatures was beyond description.
Ik it any womb r that Dorothy, more
h?uutifu! thai: the ret, when forced
to a choice, reluctantly consented to
be (be wife of the Indian chief and
was loojcned from the cords which
bound her limbs to be more firmly
bound, soul and body by a solemn
oath to the leader of these vile assas
sins. The chief removed Dorothy from
the dwelling, whilst the torch was ap
plied to the house in which mother
and slstt rs perished hi her presence,
while the war dance and the song
kept up the fluldish carnival.
Lovely Dorothy Hollges was per
haps the most unhappy and unwilling
bride upon whom the genial sunlight
of South Carolina has ever fallen.
That night when one of her brothers
returned home, as he ibought all that
met his eye was a pile of ashes, which
gazed upon the ruins In speechless
horror. His bereaved sister was
marching many miles away a captive
and the bride of an Indian chief who'
had given them so much trouble in
The September day was drawing to
a close. The last lingering rays of an
early autumn sun lingered caressing
ly over the mountuln crest as though
loath to depart. As evening came on
and twilight began to full the birds
in the valley below seemed to sing in
softer, sweeter potes their good-bye
song to the dying day. The (lowers on
the mountain side closed their petal*
and hung their drooping head's aB If
weary. All nature seemed only wait
ing for the sun to sink out of sight
and the sweet repose of a night's rest.
Nothing could exceed the varied
beauty of this wild mountain scenery.
The girl standing on the cliff gazed
in awe ns she watched the setting sun
and the mngulllcent panorama nature
had spread out before her. Hazing
over the hills where the sun had just
sunk out of sight. Dorothy's face as
sumed u sad, wistful expression. Then
her features became white and drawn.
As she stood and looked her lovely
blue eyes became almost black and'her
lingers pressed cruelly Int^h'er flesh.
Two yeara had elapsed F,*lce Dorothy
had been taken captif and ns the
pale of civilization JailVanced the In
dinns were pushcrVfnrther and farther
away till now Dc/othy is far, far from
homo and lovcdf* ones.
The only rieasure life had for the
captive girl Jna, after the days' work
waB done, yj silently slip away to the
cliff and rylze across the hills and val
leys to v/here home was once to her.
To her>dner nature the wooing of the
Indian chief and his manners was
as"r>DpulBU-e as, the hawks to the dove.
No/ wonder hor hitherto happy heart
gjtvo way to gloomy forebodings. Doro
tmy made a beautiful picture as she
'stood upon the mountuln side. Clad In
Indian dress with dark curia blowing
over her fair, white brow. "Two years
and no signs of relief," sobbed the
girl. Can it he that God has forsaken
mo? Day after day I've come to this
mountain and.prayed that some means
or escape might be near at hand. Ah!
how I regret I did not perish with
mother and BiBters."
Returning to the enmp. Dorothy
would sob herself to sleep. Hope
which always springs eternal In the
human brenst, did not desert her and
she began to again anticipate that
something might occur to relieve the
dark cloud which hovered over her
She knew not how nor what, but
she felt that a kind Providence, who
had promised to "hear those who cry
unto Htm" would correct the present
doom that rested like a pall upon her.
In the meantime, however, her hus
bnnd loved her with a devotion not
characteristic of the Indian. The chief
was proud of his "pale face wife." His
lovo for her and his association with
her had a wonderfully roflnlng Influ
ence over tho red man.
In an Indian wigwam on a pallet
lay Dorothy, her faco was white and
hercurla In n dishevelled mass. There
was a look of helplessness as if life,
hope and energy had been crushed
out and nothing remained but apathy
and indifference to tho future. Dorothy
for many days had hovered betwixt
life and death. Returning conscious
ness had found her thus. Ab she
looked about her attention wns at
tracted by a feeble cry and there be
side her lay n small bundle and In
it was her Infant boy. If the chief had
been kind, now since the birth of their
infant, hlB affection was warmer than
ever. With returning strength Dorothy
loved her child as only mother can
love. Away from tho association of
a white person It seemed that hor
whole soul concentrated In hor babe.
The years rolled on and tho Indian
continued to bo as kind as one of his
nature could bo and Dorothy almost
! became reconciled to her fate.
The war was over. The chief re
turning home one evening surprised
Dorothy by telling her that she might
visit her people it she could And them..
With a prayer in her heart and Joy
and gladness in her face, she made
ready for the trip. The Indian chief
accompanied by Dorothy and their
child set out on their Journey. When
thoy came to the borders of South
Carolina,: as far as it was safe for him
to corner they pledged their faith to
each other, made arrangements when
he should met her at the- same place,
they separated. Little did either think
that it was their final separation.
Dorothy's relatives had heard no tid
ings of her since her capture, years
igo. ll<t brouu rs and friends mourn
! her as dead.
Lk!h ?me afternoon 11 ion? woman
with a small child walked into the lit
tle village of Cokesbtiry. As if led by
Instinct she went straight into lier
b fher'a borne. Imagine the surprise
tt the family when It was known that
Dorothy Hodges bad come back from
the dead as tho it were.
Her brothers gave a great feast in
honor of her return. Everyone, far and
near, was invited, and for days and
weeks, Dorothy was kept busy telling
of her life among the uavage Indians.
Once more in the home of her family,
she became the prey ot a thousand
conflicting emotions, until at last when
the time arrived for her return, she
yielded to the Intercession of her
friends and remained with them. As
time passed on she regained her
beauty and attractiveness. A wealthy
gentleman, visiting in her brother's
home, fell in love with her and after
listening to her thrilling history, he
asked for her hand in marriage.

Which. 1,350 miles of eggs were ship

The records of Southern Railway

the total production from the Morris

more than f1,250,000. ^
.If laid end to end in a straight line
those eggs would cover a distance of
