NEWS FROM HIOREB.
Mr Eidtor: I am always glad to get
to read the news through your valua
ble columns every Wednesday from
different parts of the county, and in
order to tote fair, I thought I would
scribble d..vn a few dots from old
Down in this corner of our pre
cinct we are a blessed people, blessed
in many ways, one iii partica!ar: We
have three cece leb-rm
rhptist and Me:hodi-t. All ..re SiU,
plied with good preaciier; and good
pas:ors. The Me:hodists an.1 Bapti-tV
have hrid their protracted inte.igs
and have proved a big blessiru to b >th
churches and people. The Presbyte
rians wlil commence their protracted
meeting Friday night before the first
Sunday in September.
We will send notice for insertion
when we intend to dedicate on new
church, but want at this point special
mention made in your colnmns for the
liberal contributions that )onr town
has so ably and willingly contributcd
toward the building of it. There has
been subscribed from $1 to $100 by
bankers, lawy ers, merchants, doctors,
office-holders and non-office-holders,
and friends. All has been paid. While
we, itt our grail financial condition,
may never be able to return to you for
your liberality, we trust that God, the
.Giver of all good gifts, wi:1 abundant
lv bless and reward you for the same.
The health of the community never
better, considering the abundance of
fruit we have had; consequently the
doctors have been kept at home.
We are thankful for the big fruit
Industry.-I can't say much for we
men folks down here on the l'.nc of
industry. We all ride araund, smoke
our pipes, chew our tobacco and come
in and brag to our wives what fine
crops we have, while they (our wives)
are hard at work-canning and drying
fruit. I knew an old faithful friend,
lived in Newberry some years ago,
had it for a saying, that there was but
t wo classes ot people that worked
nowvadays, and that was the white
women and negro men. lie certainly
told a big truth. i can't think there
can be too much p:aise given our d:ar
women for their perseverance in our
'.ear land. Without the dear women,
who would build the churches, and
who would-in fact-who would keep
the world together? Answer. no one.
Woman.-We had one to go almost
mad near here the other day. She
sent her son to a country store for a
$1.00 worth of sugar. The boy came
back and reported he only got sixteen
pounds. After the mother got her
pearp and all' necessary arrangements
made to preserve them, she opened
the bag, and it contaired sixteen
pounds of sand. "Oh, me!" c-ied
out the lady for her bov, and th -n for
her $1.00. I1 suppose the boy missed a
thrashing by returning the $1.00, as
the merchant had no sugar.
Public Roads.-Outr supervis->r, Mr.
J W. C., is having our roads put in
good fix. Joe makes a good supervi
sor, but says he would make a better
Railroads.-It is four miles to our
postofiice on the C. & G. R. R. I~s a
great convenience too, for we get our
mail daily. I believe if I and my
esteemed friend of your town, Mr.
G. Hi. McMaster, could get our heads
together and some one else's morsey
together we could have another rail
road runniug through here. I would
vote for him to be president and he
would vote for me to be conductor.
The Crops.-Corn is fine beyond a
doubt, more particularly young corn <
on bottom lands. Cotton is poor, be
v ond a doubt. It has had so many
dirawbacks; cut off about 40 per cent.
Peas.-More peas planted thani corn
mnon, and if gathered will prove a big
help to the farmers..
Sorgham.-There will be another
big molasses making down here this
year, and I believe it will be the cause I
of molasses being lower in price than
Potatoes.-Well. we have been eat
ing potato custerd more than a month,
and hope to be able to eat them until

down here voted the division ticket, t

some good men on it, but will by illns
~ tration give one reason for not voting r

sweetened with black sugar nor fiav-i a

August 29, 1895. HIOREn.
AN AGREEABLE \;URPRISE.
There has been maw) social gather
ovgs in the neighbothood, but none
i.-c this. On Auguit 2,Sh, inst., we
received an invitation to attcnd a
mall sociable to be held at the resi
ence of Mr. U. C. Trapp. The eve
uing of the 29th we left our homes
about sundown, i.ot having more than
a mile and a half to drive, and reached
ur destination about 8 o'clock. We
were cordially welcomed in the parlor,
and on entering futnd that a few of
our friends had already gathered and
scemed to be enjoy ing themselves over
whelmingly, and of course your cor
respondent took an active part in all
that went on, and especially in the
latter part of the program which he
will mention later on.
After we caught the tenor of each
individual's conversation and enhaled
the odious and sweet fragrance of the
many beautiful flowers which were
wafted in on the southern breeze. and
catching a glimpse through the window
of a beautiful flower garden which
seemed to be watered and constantly
visited with the presence of one who
would take an ititercst in such things,
we ventured a step further. The
fl1wers looked as if they were ready
to receive the P'acking of a tender
hand which had been watching over
and caring for them during the last
sainmer month , and we noticed very
soon that some of them were accom
modated, judging from the appear
ance of some of the "Jim Swinger"
cost. that weze hanging about there
on a rack of boaes an.t fi sh. They
were soon embellished and perfumed
by the fragraace that would attract a
married mau's undivided attention,
much less a carpet-stamper. We will
hasten on. In the meantime we be
came very thirsty, and noticing signs
of water, proceeded toward the door
in the rear of the house and found
wh t we were seeking, a very cool and
refreshing drink of water. We also
noticed that things were exceedingly
bright in the back yard, which was
ery level and covered with white
sand. It seemed as if electric lights
were suspended in the air. The larga
clustery trees were penetrated by the
hsharp and bright says of light which
darted like an arrow towards tha shin
ng heavens; and much more to our
surprise was that just underneath those
b-Ight and illuminous lights was a
lage square table, decorated with
some of those lovely flowers and filled
with cakes of various kinds and ice
cream saucers filled to overfiowitng.
Our faculty of surprise was pitched
to its very utmost, (and oh how
agreeably). But soon we heard the
tender voice of one who bad prepared
the feast in to'ies like this :"'Walk
out to supper." Then came the broad
rins of the boys and the lovely smiles
tohejyung. ladies, and everybedy
service soon began, all bountifully
helped and quiet prevailed for se
time. After icecream and cake was
served then came the cake and cool
lemonade; all of which was delightiul,

At last matters got very bad, for two
f the indunas came forward to drag her
if to execution, and it was not until
tella fairly burst into te(ars that the
Ight of her grief, backed by Mr. Car
on's orders and my own remonstrances, St
arried the day.
All this while llendrika had been
tanding quite unmoved. A t last the
umult stopped, and the leading i-nduna ch
alled to her to go, promising that if Al
ver she showed her face near the
raals again she should be stabbed like
jackal. Then Hendrika spoke to Stella
a a low voice in English: be
"Better let them kill me, mistress. bet- 10
er for all. Without you to love I shall th
o mad and become a babyan again." th
Stella did not answer, and they looe
Ler. She stepped forward and looked at I
he natives with a stare of hate. Then
he turned and walked past rme. and as th
he passed whispered a native phrase in th
ay ear, that being literally translated, w<
ieans "till another moon;" but which w
as the same significance as the French
au revoir." h
It frightened me, for I knew she af
aeant that she had not done with me,
nd saw that our mercy had been mis- B:
laced. Seeing my face change she ran
iftly from me, and as she passed of
ndaba-zimbi, with a sudden movemefnt th
natched her great knife from his hand. Ih
Yhen she had gone about twenty paces h:
he halted, looked long and earnestly m
)n Stella, gave one loud cry of anguish Si
nd fled. A few minutes later we saw si

nazahn, she will come back again. ti
kh, why will you not listen to b:
ny words? Have they not always been it
rue words, Macumazahn?" and he d<
shrugged his shoulders and turned away. y<
For awhile I was much disturbed, but
,t any rate Hendrika was gone for the h,
>resent, and Stella, my dear and lovely I
vife, was there at my side, and in her r
miles I forgot my fears. S(
For the rest of the day, why should I 11
xrite of it? there are things too happy t,
ind too sacred to be written of. fr
At last I had, if only for a little tc
while, found that rest, that perfect joy a
vhich we seek so continually and s0 a

it desirable that we should reach a eiv

THE STRANGE STORY
BY H. IRIDER HAGGARD, C

Then Mr. Carson spoke. "Allan and

"We do," we answvred.
Then the book w-s brought out and
we signed our names. At first my wife
signed hers "Stella" only, but her father
bade her write it Stella Carson for the
first and last time in her life. Then
several of the indunas, or head men, in
luding old Indaba-zimbi, put their
marks in witness. Indaba-zimbi drew
his mark in the shape of a little star, in
humorous allusion to Stella's native
name. That register is beforo me now

"Never," murmured Stella in my ear;
but Mr. Carson turned white with wrath.

s a babyan-wvoman. a devil-woman; ah, V
*es, we have heard of such before; let 0
Ler be slain before she works more evil."
Then it was that Stella stepped for., s
~rd and begged for IHendrika's life in
aoving terms. She pleaded the sav-j
gery of the woman's nature. her long!
ervice, and the affection that she had
lways shown towards herself. She said

Now her fathe~r listened readily

omisd not to do so. But the people
ere in a different humor, they looked
>n Ilendrika as a devil, and would
