For some reason unknown to me
every oue of my communications
shares its fate in the waste basket, *
but nevertheless I will venture the
attempt to write again, hoping it
will make its appearauce in print.
Some of tbe correspondents seem
to think that B. has me in an atra*
bilious and mulanoholy state of <
mind, but let me assure you that '
my thought has not been nieta- '
phorioal. I have been vory prompt
in replying to nil of B's. epistles,
but I suppose the Editor judged ,
some of my communications indigestible
for B. So as I now bnve
tlie time and opportunity, I will
explain to the readers the reason
B. don't wan't to marry. Of course
yon know B. is a bachelor ot unknown
age, but we can recollect
when we were quite small, B. was
very popular with the young lading
as we have Baid before, and
wont to see a certain girl, who
would have flirted with h .church
steeple, and B., unexperienced,
gavo her his whole heart, and the
poor fellow was as happy as Adam
and Kve in the Garden of Eden,
till the wedding appeared, then
she said: "I was only flirting."
Then B. was in a critical condition,
and of course said to himself if he,
ever had the opportunity of speaking
to her again, he would throaten
to commit suicide or make his
home in some foreign country, but
she left the county, and B. was
left to mourn his trouble and
bereavement, and now he lives a
retired life and tries to instruct
others. Bless your soul, the presence
of a lady makes B. blush and |
turn pale behind his ears and I
tremble iu his knees, aud now you {
cau easily see the reason B. don't
want to experiment with matrimony
again. We can only extend
onr heartfelt sympathy, and hope
he will recover and return to himself
.
The weather has been considerably
cool the past vreok for the
time of the year, but nevertheless
the crops are growing right on.
Some of the farmerfl have plowed
their cotton over the past wick.
'JThey report that cotton is the best
and fruited better, on the ridge,
than it has been for years. Thej
prospect is good for n largo crop.
Cora is also good in this section.
T. W. Durham is spending this
week in Greenville, having his son,
Oscar's eyes treated. We hope his
eight will bo restored.
Will Atkinson, who runs a store
at the old Farmer stand, says ho
will sell more Bitgar for a dollar
than any other country merchant.
N. R. Kennemore is now pi sparing
to build him a fine residence
near Pleasant Hill church. Mr.
ICfinnemnro hhvm Iia liaa uu i?n..li
right to a fine house as anybody.
Mies Lindia Morgan and mother
of Nowhope, visited relatives in
this community recontly. I
The Sundav school is in a (lour-j
ishing condition at this place. I.et
everybody como to Sunday school.
T. W. Satterfield is confined to
his bod with fever. Dr. Justice is
his attending physician. We hope j
1 for him a speedy recovory.
Health i? not very good Ht present.
Candidates arc now making time
count, and are keeping the roads
hot, and we aro expecting to bco
thorn all at this place the 6th, so j
everybody come and bring woll i
filled baskets, The speakers will'
have somothing interesting and
instructive to tell you along educational
lines. There is a treat
awaiting all who attend.
A crowd of Poa Kidgors spent i
last week in the mountains. We
visited the White Water Falls and
Sapphire, Toxaway and Hogback
mountains, and all had a good
time. The roacfs are good in the
mountains. We met an antomo-;
bile up about Whito Water that
passed through this place from
Greenville, and you may judge
that the roads are fairly feood. So
, go to the mountains if you want
to; don't stand back on account of
the roads. Cony. .

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.
K?n Who W?r? Bora in On* B option
And K?pr?Mnt Anothor At
Washing to*.
There are few men in congreM
who are natives of southern
fates, but who have moved north
and represent northern constituencies,
say 8 the Washington
Post. There is but one man who
is a native of a northern state
who have been elected from the
south, and in this case he comoH
from a border state. Very many
men born in eastern states are
now representing western states.
This is very natural, as the tide of
immigration has been from east
to west, and the west has been
peopled by the east.
It is a rare thing, however, to
find a man in congress from the
east who was born in the west.
But there are some. Fowler, of
New Jersey, and Greene, of Mas- .
ni'hunpita nrp nntivi>H r?f IllinniR.
PerkinB, of New York, was horn in
Wisconsin. Hearst, of New York,
is a native of California.
The men who were born in the
sonth and now represent northern
constituents are Senator Ilawlev,
of Connecticut, who was born in
North Carolina; Senator Cnllom,
of Illinois, a native of Kentucky,
a border state, however; Senator
Newlnnds, of Nevada, a native of
Missinsippi; Speaker Cannon, of
Illinois, and Representative Dixon,
of Montrtna, and Shober, of
New York, were born in North
Carolina; Representative Marshall
of North Dakota, is a native
Of Missouri. West Virginia in
not always counted a southern
state, and the fnot that her two
senators are Ohio horn scarcely
makes the exception to the rule
that few northern men are sent
ito congress from the south.
THE RIGHT WAY TO WALK.
Preservation of a Good Figure Dtpeoda
to Some Extent on This
?A Hew Theorjr.
A friend who leads a very active
me huh a meory mat the preservation
of a good figure ikIh to
some extent on the manner of
walking, Hays the Philadelphia ,
Inquirer. Many people, she says,
as they advance in years allow
themse 1 ves to walk heavily and
without elasticity, so that the
whole weight rests on the lower
part of the limbs'at every step,
the only effect of exercise boinjr
weariness of the Icjjb and feet. Instead
of this his body should he
held erect and poised so ns to have
a perfect balance; in this way the
muscles are braced and strengthened
throughout, the Iuii^b must
of necessity be well expanded, and
it seems quite reasonable to supnose
that the tendenrv t*? iiwromn
of weight may be checked. At all
events a lighter atop and a brisker
and more enjoyable manner of
walking can be kept up, and that
in itself is a very great gain.
Quit* Romantic.
A romantic incident connected
with the recent marriage of two
|K>pnlar young (icoplc of Ilridgton,
Me., hat) just come to light. It
seems that in the very beginning
of their courtship Home six or
even yearn ago, during one of the
young man's visits to the home
of the young Indy who Anally became
his wife, he chanced to take
from his pocket a $10 gold piece
which the young lady ^ot into her
possession. He made a brief at
tempt to regain it, but gave it up
and in a joking way said: "Keep
it to pay the minister with."
Tiie years went by and the golden
eagle was entirely forgotten by
the young man. On the day when
the marriage ceremony was to .
take place, which was the oiH'nin^ I
of the present season, the bride-tobe
produced the identical gold
piece and the minister received it
for his fee.?Kennebec Jnnpiul
