TRJAYEEKLY EDITrION. WINNSBOROq S. C.., AUGUST 20, 819.ETALIHE"11
SUNS E T.
I childhood days, long years ago,
Far from the busy town,
The happiest hour I used to know
Was when the sun went down;
For then I'd labor's cares dismits
And speed with heart elate
To win a "Welcome home!" and kiss
, From mother at the gate.
Now, in the afternoon of life,
As evening's shades draw nigh,
Again I see the sun go down
Without a single sigh;
And when at last it sinks to rest
I'!l ask no kindlier fate
Than a welcome kiss at sunset
irom mother at the gate.
-Frank S. Pixley.
FOR Ill 6 ISTER'S SAKE.
"Hush ! Listen ! Didn't you hear
the breaking of a twig ?'
As the words were whispered the
speaker spread out his arms to ar
rest the progress of his three com
panions. Under a stunted tree they
crouched, listening for the faintest

that they could possibly have chosen

sportsman extremely jealous of his
preserves and notorious as the very
sternest J. P. in the county.
But times were bad and for food

Truth to tell he didn't half like the
job, although it had conjured a rab

in poaching, and horribly nervous he
felt ever since he set out on the expe

we're hard up for food, but, though
you say I'm weak and ill, I can share
with you till the pits open again. It,
can't be long, and we'd better starve
than you get sent to prison."
Of course Jim had promised that
he would do nothing of the sort.
But when he remembered his sister's
'pale face, and noticed how, day by
day, her cheeks got thinner, the
sight of .the rabbits and pheasants
that played, even in the country
roads about which lie and his mates
wandered all day long to while away
the weary hours, was too much for
him; und that night after Bess had
gone to bed, Jim stole noiselessly
from the cottage and joined the
others at the gate of Hopsley's Cop
And now the others, well satisfied
with the result of their night's work
were stealthily making their way
A bright moon floated in the clear
sky above, but in the woods a silvery
mist arose amid the dark shadows or
the trees and shrubs, rendering all
objects hazy and indistinct.
Crossin~g a broad patch of light,
Hawvel, still haunted by this stran,e
unrest, glanced back at the woods
behind; and, as he did so. his heart
gave a thump as some half a dozen
figures, throwing black shadows on
the moonlit ground, dashed from thet
cover of the bushes.
"'Look out, mates ! The kee pers!
The others gave one look round.
then broke into a run. On the hard
ground the footfalls of their pursuers'
sounded plainly in the cars of the
start ledl poachers.
Trheni came a voice, "Stop, or we'll
fire !" And, as the four still lore
blindly on, the report of a guin sotn nd
ed out, echoing in the woods around,
and'with a cry of pain: the rearmno.4
man dropped to the ground with a
charge of small shot hoodged in his

say, but a second after he and the
others were fighting hand to handl
with the keepers, exchanging mur
derous blows with fist, stick and gun.
They were but three and a wounded
mnan to six, and in a few minutes the
tight was over. A blow on the head
stretched Jim Hlawel senseless on the
ground, his mates were speedily over-*
come, and, additional aid having been
summoned, the captives were taken
away through the woods and lodged
in the stone lockup.
"And you, James Hawel, what
have you to say for yourself?''
Jim Hawel, standing before the
magistrate with his three fellows.
didn't know what to say. The other
Judges, taking into consideration t he
fact that the men were out of work,
and that great distress prevailed in
the district, were eviden tly inclined
to Adopt a somewhat lenient view of
their case, especially as the men
swore that the keepers had fired upon
them before being in anyway threat
ened; but ('oh. Traite, displayingz hisI
usual severity, and easily swaying
his less strong minded colleagues,
promptly frowned upon the slightest
suggestion that any mercy should be
shown to the delinquents.
''James Hawel. have you anything
to say?" he asked, sternly.
Jim shuffled his feet, trving to find
words for the thoughts that camne
readily enough to his slow brain.
The eyes of all present wvere upon
him, but he saw only the face of his
sister. who, lying ill in the lit t le
cottage, he knew was waiting withl
feeiheagerness for the result o

Colonel Traite looked round at the or
other magistrates, and no one ven- wj
tured to oppose him. But, as the
men were being led away, Jim n
Hawel stepped back, and, in desper- th
ation, played his last card. sa
"Colonel," said he, "may I say sp
anot.her word?" th
"Your Honor, my sister is very al
ill. When she hears of this the
shock may kill her. You yourself oil
have a daughter about her age. ic
"Take him away," said the Colonel, wl
Then, as they hustled him from th
the court, Jim Ilawel, his face white ra
and set., turned his head again, acd pi
through the hall the fierce words bt
"I'm going, Colonel Traite; but so th
sure as I live to get my liberty again, al
I'll be even with you!' co
And for that speech Jim got an uc
extra week. re
Jim Hlawel lived to regain his lib- en
erty, and, when again ie was free, a thi
dark hatred rankled in his heart. se
Sister Bess had had a bl time of as
it, but buoyed up by the hope of see
ing .iim again, she struggled bravely in
with her illness, and though she h:il
to give up the cottage, managed to he
live on somehow on the charity of her
lowly neighbors till the happy day sh
cane when Jim was " out."
The pits were working again, and al:

The boll in the steeple of the
urch had just struck 11, when in
e darkness of night a flickering,
icertain light sprang up on a hill a
ile outside the town. Soon after
e electric bell in the fire station
nnected by wire with Col. Traite's
ause rang out the alarm, and a few
conds afterward the quiet that had
ttled on the little town was ex
anged for a noisy hubbub as the
out went around: "Hopsley
ange is on fire!" For, undetected
dog or man, the three plotters had
tered the grounds, gained the sta
a, carefully removed a shutter, and
ently poured the oil they carried
er the straw that was packed
thin right up to the very windows.
Then the man who carried the
atcles struck a wholo handful on
e box and hurled them upon the
trated straw. Instantly a blaze
rang to the roof, and by the time
e three had gained the road out
le the grounds the stable was
hlt from end to end.
