EX-CONORESSMAN VANCE, of Ohios
recently disappearod from home.
Rumor immediately began riddling
his reputation. It was first report..
ed that he had absconded with oth
er people's monay. Then it was
confidently announced that he had
eloped with a music teacher's wife.
Finally, his distracted wife received a
telegram from San Francisco, saying
that he had waidered there and was
insane. His case is an examplo of
the rarity of Christian charity.
TiE UNITED STATES Senate by a
vote of forty to nineteen, on Wod
nesday, passed a bill compelling the
Pacific Railroads to lay up money
to meet their indebtedness to the
government at the expiration of
thirty years. Though the govern
ment gave those roads about a
ht .dred million dollars in one
way and another, yet, through the
wording of the charter, it is iu
possible to compel them to make
restitution. The new bill was
bitterly fought, but it will un
doubtedly become a law, and thus
an ultimate loss of over a hundred
millions of dollars by the govern
ment will be provented.
A Row in Congress--General Shields
The House of Representatives, at
Washington, has been thrown into
a state of turmoil over the election
of doorkeeper-the last incumbent,
Polk, having been dismissed for
employing too many attaches. As
this is the second Democratic door..
keeper that has "gone wrong," the
Democrats were naturally solicitous
about finding a man who would not
bring the party into reproach again.
In this emergency, Beast Butler
proposed to lend a helping hand ;
and in furtherance of his benevolent
design nominatedl "the gallant,
christian, married, loyal, t.riedl and
truo Union soldier, James Shields,
brigadier-general United States
army, a citizen of the State of
Missouri." An endorsemnent from
the Boast is generally enough to
damn anyone ; but in this caso as
the nomination was prompted by
sin ister motives, General Shields is
not injured thereby. This was a
(dodge on the part of the Radicals
to damage the Democrats before the
country. The .majority spurned
the suggestion, however, nominat
ing, instead, Major-General Fields,
of the Confederate army. The
debate that ensued was character-.
ized with great bitterness. Shields
is an old Democrat, and bears the
marks of both Mexican and C on
federate bullets. He wvas usedl
merely as a cat's-paw, without havin~g
anything to do in the matter. It
was developed that the samo Radi-.
cals who nowv support him, igno
miniously kicd him from the door
of Congress, to which he had been
sent after the war by a largeo
majority from a district in Missouri.
The Radicals heard a good deal of
plain talk, and made no capital.
General Fields was elected door
keeper. Immediately thereupon a bill
was passed placeing General Shields
on the retirod list, as brig-idier..
general, with a salary of thr'oo
thousand dollars a year. As he is
old and poor this is a windfall to
him. It is an ill wind that blows
DANGERoUs WVOUNDs.. ..Boys and
oth.ers occasionally run nails into
their feet. It sometimes produces
lock-.jaw. The following is said to
be an effective remedy. It is cer
tiily very simple. Take a cowv's

TIIR ICNIG HTS OF HONOR.
Second Annual Mooting of the Grand
Lodge of South Carolina.
The popularity and success of the
Knights of Honor, a comparatively
now secret and benevolent society,
has becn. really astonishing. Tle
numberless organizations already in
existence for the benefit and amuse
ment of mankind, spread over the.
entire country, did not seem to
le.ve a place for another society.
But the projectors of the Knights
of Honor engrafted a safe and cer
tain priiciplo upon their order by
which to cleave its way to an almost
unparalleled popularity at once.
It was that feature which proposes
to confer ladting and substantial
benefit upon the widows and or
phans after the grave closes over its
members. The feature of life insu
ranco was added to the plan of or
ganization, and indeed madec the
chief, leading and governing feature
in all its transactions. The order
is said to havo originated in Louis..
ville, Kentucky, about five years
ago, and was designed chiefly for
the inhabitants of that city, but so
popular were the principles en
grafted upon the organization that
a demand came for its extension to
other .localities. From this small
beginning it has already grown to, a
membership of 40,000 in the United
States, including within its jurisdic"
tion ne:rly every Stt-, and about
1,000 s 'bordiiate lodges now in
existence. The qualifications of
membership are that. all applicants
must be white male persons between
the ages of twenty.ono and fift.-five
years, who have passed a
fav r..bin medical examination,
and been elected by ballot.
Each member of the third
dogroo--and none other is permit
ted to enjoy the privileges~ of the
widowS' and orphlhan)s' benefit fund
-pays for the support of widows
and orphans of deceased members
at every assessment. The contribu
tion varies from one dollar to four
dollars according to the age of the
members, anid tis amonuit is paid
iwhenever less than $2,000 is in
time general fund, after that sum is
paid to the family of the last de
ceased member. The average pay
mont is about ten dollars per
annum for each member--which car
rims an insurance of $2,000.
So much for the history and work
ings of the Knights of Honor. The
Grand Lodge of South Carolina,
which was only organized last year,
met in Columbia this week, and was
in s ssion for several days. We have
not been able to give an account of
its proceedings because reporters
are not allowed within its sacred
retreat, despite the anomalous fact
that one of the principal officers is
a "grand reporter." Unofficially, it
is ftated that tihe progress of the
order in South Carolina has been
quite satisfactory since its institu
tion within the State two years ago.
Tihe.annual meeting just closed wvas
harmonious and p)leaisan t, we are
informed, and the representatives
from tho subordinate lodges were
much encouraged by the showing
of the paist year. It was dletermined
that the next annual meeting shall
take pla,ce in Newberry on tihe
second. Tuesday in April,'1879. The
following officers were elected to
serve tile ensning year:
T. S. Moormnan, New~berry, Past
GraLnd Dictator ; W. A. Clark, Co

Look out for thirteen at a table !
A young lady visited a summer
house called "Hillside," in New
York State, ate with twelve other
guests and died within the year.
The day before she died her physi
cian also dined at the same house
with twelve other persons, and
presently died at Elmira.. A day or
two afterwards a brother of the
hostess, not withstanding the warn
ings that were given him, dined with
the dangerous twelve at the same
table, and then within fve weeks
he, too, fell ill and died.
