A special to C Charlotte Observer
from Jsckon, Miss., says: Wili

-thatl, ends an it:teresting chapter of
Mississippi histe. .
Two years ago the life of the average
negro farm laborer in South Missispit-i
was matde niserable ii not uncerta by
outrmres of murderous %'rhite-cap or
,anzi~ations in the county (Pike). These
ir.i4night riders vented their spite on
those who owned farms by whippi'4
and drivi tg oi1 the negroes and . Ih any
instances burning their ebins and
corn-cribs. In Lincoti iounty they be
taie so bold that when a score of their
;tssociates were jailed, they rode into
Brookhaven, two hundred strong, and
demanded their release while Judge
Christian was holding court, 'and the
'iational guard was called out to dis
;>rse them, the men under arrest being
:sent to State prison.
In Marion county numerous czimes
were credited to the white-capt and a
young man who had becomeoffended at
one of their acts of villainy severed his
vonnection with the band and turned
State's evidence. On his way home
from the cocet house he was killed from
ambush. Circumstantial evidence was
very strong that Will Purvis was the
murderer. He was tried and convicted
and sentenced to hang. The day for
the execution came and thousands as
sembled at Purvis to witness the hang
ing. But the sheriff was not equal to'
the emergency or else he had beer.
bribed to let Purvis live. The ropart
was tied so that when the drop fell the
noose slipped and Purvis went t,
the ground like a cbunk of lead
Instead of danling in mid-air, The
sheriff made as if he would try it again,
but the crowd surged around him and
prevented his movements so that the I
condemned 'man was taken back to the
jail where he has since remained. He
still protests his innocence and his
lawyer got the case before the Supreme
Court again and argued that Purvis
had been hanged once and the law vin
dicated. The court held otherwise and
ordered him re-sentenced, which was
done yesterday by Judge Terrill, July
31st being fixed as the date.
Meanwhile white-capping is one of
the lost arts in Mississip-pti, The courts j

1 few days ago there was an explosion o\

Great blocks o! stone were thrown out and a I

MORINLNG IN TIlE PARK.
BY 3 ul 'E DBANGS.
ENTRAL P A R K
.as at its best, but
it . was evident
enough that Doug
r a las Gray, as he en
tered the park at
its lower and prin;
C eipal entrance, saw
bothing 'of what
ever there was oi
beauty in the scene
about him. Ap
parently he was
aot happy. He walked along slowly,
Pith his eyes upon the path immedi
tely before him, and with his hands
Iqsped together tehind his back.
There were but few people in the
?aths, and the drives were almost
mpty, so that his attention to his own
:houghts was not diverted by any oc
asion to observe others, or by any
aced to preserve himself from harm.
Ie walked on thus, almost without
ifting his eyes, past the sorry collec
:ion of caged animals which were to be
looked at later in the day by so many
,urious visitors; past the patient
lonkeys, waiting the coming of the
urse-girls with their charges; on
brough the tree-lined mail and past

rossing a narrow part of the lake,

nd noticed, wonderngly, how clearly
ho trees and the blue sky, with the
assing clouds, were reflected in the
lull and almost muddy water. The
resh air and the surroundings had
oothed'and rested him, and, though
iot conscious of the reason, he felt
ess weighted with sorrow, or stronger
tnd better able to bear his burdens,
rhatever they might be. He walked
n more briskly now, and skirting the
amble, with its curiously successful
mitation of nature's wildness, he
resently came to a secluded bench,
nd there he seated himself and,
amiliar though he was with all the
ark, looked about him as though the
iew was strange and new to him. In
eed, the circumstances were novel
Lud his mood one unusual to him.
1lmost at his feet, or separated from
im only by the width of the foot
alk, ran the bridle-path, and beyond
ras the wide, smooth drive. He looked
differently upon the few drive:s with
heir equipages, and with little interest

"You should not have done that,"

"Oh, good morning, Mr. Gray!I"

"Indeed, Miss Leith," he returned,
rith a great assertion of dignity in

aused. "I hope you will explain."

"I was about to say, only, that 1

"Would it have gratified you had I
-had I killed myself, say?"
"Don't !" she said earnestly.
"Men have been known to do that,
you know," he pursued; "and for less
eause than I have, too.'
"Oh; Please do not speak so," she
returned. "Promise me-I know you
will not-will not do that; but prom

plied, seriously enough.
"You are laughing at me," she re
agonded, passionately. "You made
Ina think you loved me, too."
"I am very glad I did make you
think you; but it should not have
been hard---I had only the truth to
"And yet you are here?"
"Yes. I am her-, as you see."
"And you don't mind at all?" she
"Ah, yes, Ethel, but I do mind," he
returned, gently. "Perhaps if I did
not mind so much I would not be
here. I loved you, and-but-" he
said, interrupting himself, and then
he continued with a sadness which she,
being busy with her horse, which had
become restive, did not notice, al
though she heard his words-"but I
dare say you do not wish I should go
into all that again, do you?"
"No," she answered, curtly, an
noyed that he should so ask her if he
should speak of his love; and then, in
her annoyance-an annoyance he was
conscious of, although he could not
understand it-she struck her horse
and urged him forward so that he be
gan at once a hard run, which carried
him and his rider quickly out of sight
before she could check and turn him,
as she tried almost at once to do.
When at last she succeeded, and came
back to where Gray had stood, he had
turned and was walking away, striking
at the plants along the path with his
cane, angry and hurt that his tround
should have been so ruthlessly and so
needlessly opened. But, in truth, it
had not gone far, if at all, toward
"Mr. Gray!" Ethel called, for. he
was not yet out of hearing. -Mr.
Gray, you had not finished," she went
on as he joined her.
"Finished?" he repeated. "I don't
know. But I am sorry to have driven
you away by speaking of my love. 3
shall not so offend again."
"Oh," she responded, demurely.
"Besides." he continued, at once
breaking. his promise, "you have told
me that I was able to make you be
lieve that I loved you. Why should I
speak of it again?"
"I don't know, I am sure," was all
she could find to say.
"Of course it is all over now. I
would like to assure you, though.
You were good enough, you know," he
explained, "to say that you had been
worried. I can only thank you for
your kindness and interest, and say,as
I said before, that I mean to do the
best I can. I will not be over some,"
he added with determination, "or let
my.life be ruined."
"It will all. be easy 'enough, I
fancy," she returned.
"Don't," he pleaded. "Don't say
anything so untruec. It will no be
"But you left me so suddenly last
night, and-and-" she went on with
hesitation and evident embarrassment,
"and you began so soon to forget
and to be here and interested in other
"Oh, yes," he assented as she
paused, "but, at all events, I did not
begin to try to forget until you forced
me to. And," he continued, grimly,
"I have not succeeded very well,
either. But I will."
"Oh, certainly you will. There is
no doubt of that. There are so many
things a man can be interested in."
"Fortunate' a man is compelled to
be-at least, I think fortunately. He
has his affairs."
"That is just it !" she interrupted,
petulantly. "His affairs, indeed!"
"Yes," Gray went on, not heeding,
apparently, the interruption. "And
it is fortunate for me that I am com
pelled to be interested in my affairs,
is it not? If mny way had all been
made fcz me I could afford to nurse
ny grief and to make much of it, and
I dare say I would. And that would
not be good to do, surely."
"No, I fancy not," she answered,
doubtfully, and then with a quick
change of manner she asked him:
"But why did you leave me so sud
denly last night?"
"There are times when a man can
not retreat too quickly," he returned,
quietly, "and it seemed to me that I
had come to one of them. It was all
or nothing with me. I had been lover
so long-I was your lover, you know.
Even though ~you did not know it, and
whether you wanted me to be or not,
I was; and you do know it now. When
[ cosld not be -that I could not be
anything. I have loved you-how can
rs tell? When didl fIrst meet you?
Ever since then I think I must have
loved you, and looked forward, and
hoped to win your love and you. I
was blind, perhaps, and deluded, but
ny hope was very real to me. When
that was killed, or gone, there was
othing left for me to do or say to
you. And I would not urge you; I
would not plead for your love; I
would not tell you that with it to help
and encourage me I might win
the world. Pshaw ! AltLhugh I did
think it the one good thing which
could come to me in life, I still did
not want you to give it to me in pity,
or because I wanted it and begged for
it. No; I wanted it only if you could
give it to me freely, and as a right.
That is all."
"Oh, that is-"
"Except," he interrupted, "I want
you to know that because you find me,
as you said, trying to be interested in
all this". -and with a comprehensive
gesture he indicated all the fair view
before them--"that I love you any
less or think your love any less good
to have and to keep. But," he went
on, grimly, "we kr.-w- I can remem

gan; but interrupting herself, went
on, abruptly: "If only you had been

"Trust you 10 he repeated, is astou
ishment. "I asked you to share all
my hopes. Why. I asked you to be
my wife! What stronger evidence of
trust can a man give than that?"
"Oh, that!" she said, contemptu
"Well, that is of some consequence,
though you speak as if it was of none
"A man might ask a woman that
because he wanted a wife."
"Yes, he might."
"Or because he though he owed so
much to her."
"Yes, I suppose so; but you know'?
why I asked you," he returneJ, look
ing at her curiously.
"I know now-yes,' she answered.
"But you know," she went on, im
petuously, "you have spoken so often
and so bitterly of women who-whc
hinder their husbands and are drag
upon them-of women who do not
help their husbands. As if a woman'.t
sole mission and sole aim should be to
help some man !" she added, contempt
"What-" he began, but again she
"And I don't see why a man--men
are so strong!-I don't see why a man
should need a woman's help. And
you have told me so many stories of
men whose lives have been ruined by'
bad or unwise marriages. Oh, I rc
member everything you have said
"But what has this-"
"And you know you have thought
me frivolous," she 'continued.
"Oh, you have not rebuked me in
words, I know," she went on, inter
rupting hin again, relentlessly, "but
your manner. As if a girl ought not
to be happy and careless and free as
long as she can be. Troubles and
cares come soon enqugh !"
"Ethel, for heaven's sake do let me
speak! I am trying to understand."
"Do you mean to say that that is
why you declined? That you refused
me because you thought it would be
better for me?"
"Well--oh, don't! You will
frighten my horse."
"Oh, bother your horse !" Gray
said, warmly. "There is only one
thing I ought to do and want to do."
"And that?" Miss Leigh asked, as
she tried to soothe her horse, which
had starteu and become restless as
Grav had come closer to them.
"~Simply take you, and keep you."
"How that would look," she re
sponded, and continued: "It is very
fortunate that I am up here and out
of your reach-now."
Then she gave her horse his head
and, urging him forward, began again
her long-interrupted ride; but belore
she came even to where her groom
was waiting she changedher intention
and turned toward the city. As she
passed Gray, who still stood where
she had left him, she called to him:
"It is so late I should go home-and I
am goinig." And with a long, easy
stride her horse soon carried her out
of Gray's sight.
As the sun had risen higher a haze
had come, softening the outlines of
the distant trees, and giving promise
that the day was to be a warm one.
It was indeed already much warmer,
but, nevertheless, as Gray retraced his
steps toward the entrance he walked
rapidly and far more vigorously than
he had in the invigorating air of the
earlier morning.-Leslie's Weekly.
That Terrible Sparrow.
Irerhaps the strongest argument
against the sparrow is that he drives
away the song birds. In certain cases,
that is possibly true. When the com
ing of song birds is encouraged by
the building of boxes for them to nest
in, the sparrow is quite prone to oust
the song birds and take possession ot
the boxes. If he finds a tree to bo
particularly convenient, lie takes pos
ession of that, and so it is unfortun

was seized by the dispensary constables dur
ing May on the grounds that the dispensary
system is a monopoly, and that as such it is
repugnant to the Act of Congress of 1890, en
titled an "Act to protect trade and commerce
against unlawful restraint and monopoly."
Of course in bringing this action the lawyers
not only propose to attempt the recovery of
damages for Mr Lowenstein. but also to at
tack the constitutionality of the dispensary
law. It will be remembered that Judges Mc
Iver and McGowan have both already declar
ed the dispiensaIry law to be a monopoly, and
it is probable that some stress will be laid
upon this circnmstance. The case will not
be heard in the Umitcd States Court until the
fall term in Charleston. S. C.

The general couneni of Philadelphia, at its

"While in Paris a shorb time ago,"
said a traveler recently, "it occurred
to me that it was a fitting act to make
a pilgrimage to the tomb of that illus. hi
trious Frenchman, dear to the hearts cc
of American patriots, Marquis de La- is
fayette. I asked a number of people a
before I could find anyone to en- 01
lighten met as to the spot, but after tt
repeated inquiry ascertained the loca
tion. The grave is situated in old at
Paris, within the grounds of a convent 01
that the ancestors of Lafayette found- M
ed, and where repose the remains of ,
many of the French nobility. The e
first thing that attracted my atten- te
tion with the hero's tomb was that y
above it was foated a silken fg bear
ing the stars and stripes. el
"It seems that a good many years e
ago an American gentleman left in his 0
will a sum of money to be used for the
special purpose of keeping an Ameri
can flag forever flying over the grave b
of Lafayette. It has done so without
intermission from the day the will a
went into effect, and whenever, a
through the wear of the elements, 1
one flag becomes unserviceable, a nev
one straightway takes its place.
Through untold centuries the em- s
blem of the country which in its early ,
straggles for liberty had his ben
eficent aid, willwave above his ashes."
-rea and Coffee in Hawaii.
Fine qualities of tea and coffee are
being grown at present in Hawaii, and.
it is thought by experts that the a
islands will soon become an important
source of supply. Both tea and cof
fee grow luxuriantly and both are 3
being prepared for market by machin- i
ery instead of by hand. The tea is
picked by a machine and rolled and
packed without being touched by t
hand. It is believed that the use of 3
efficient machinery will compensate
for the low wages paid in China and
other tea countries. Extensive drying
bouses have been erected by the cof
fee planters and preparations are
making for preparing a large crop for
market this year.-Chicago Timea- t
British officialdom believes i n high
salaries. The Victoria Legislature re-,
cently reduced the Governor's salary
from $50,000 to $25,000, which they
thought a good compensation for the 'i
hard times in the colony. A prompt
protest came from the home office to
the effect that the latter figure was
too low, and the obliging colonists
have raised it to $35,000. The Gov.
ernor is one of the officials which the
British Government does not allow the
colonists to elect.

Le interview with a reporter he said: i
"I was wounded and sent to the hospital -
Winchester. They sent me, together with
hers, to Washington-a ride of about 160
iles. Raving no room in the box cars we
ere placed face up on the bottom of flat
rs. The sun beat down upon our unpro-,
ted heads. When I reached Washington
was insensible and was unconscious for ten
ys while in the hospital. An abscess gath
ed in my ear and broke; it has been gath-.
dng and breaking ever since. The result
f this 100 mile ride and sunstroke was heart
isease, nervous prostration, insomnia and
beumatism; a completely shattered system
rhich gave me no rest night or day. As a
ist resort I took some Pink Pills and they
elped me to a wonderful degree. -My rheus
tatism is gcne, my heart failure, dysepsia
nd constipation are about gone, and the ab
mess in my ear has stopped discharging and
iy head feels as clear as a bell, when before
t felt as though it would burst, and my once
battered nervous system is now nearly
5und. Look at those fingers," Mr. Edwards
aid, "do they look as if there was any rheu
iatism there?" He moved his fingers rapid
F and freely and strode about the room like
young boy. "A year ago those fingers were
arled at the joints and so stif that I could
ot hold a pen. My knees would swell up
ad I could not straighten my legs out. y
Dints would squeak when I moved them.
Siat is the living truth.
"When I came to think that I was going
o be crippled with rheumat:sm, tog
rith the rest of my ailments I tell you l
eemed not worth living. I suffered fro
lespondency. I cannot begin to tell yo*"

e prime and vigorous at forty-seven, I
ould feel no better. I was an old man and.
ould only drag myself painfully about the,
touse. Now I can walk off without any
rouble. That in itself," continued Mr.
Edwards, "would be sufficient to give me
ause for rejoicing, but when you come to
onsider that I am no longer what you
aight call nervous, and that my heart is ap
arently nearly healthy, and that I can sleep
ights, you may realize why I may appear to'
peak in extravagant praise of Pink Pills.
