in u mountain hotel, a guy group of
-loin were seated about in hall
?<arlor, engaged in fancy work,

l)re bin ned brightly on the hearth, for
it wa> late in ilio season.
" We tiro just a nice party now,''
Huid one young lady, looking ?p from
hur lapful of shaded silks: " I hope
nobody elso will coiuo !"
" Except to fill vucanoiob as wo drop
off," > aid a geutloinun. as be laid aside
bin letters. " You will eeo two vacant
chairs at the tablo to-morrow."
"Very well)" was tbo reply. "It
you must go, we will spread ourselves
and keep the tablo full. If wo can't

Tbo next morning tbo home-bound
truvollers left ou tbo oarly stago, and,
at tbo last moment, anotbor guost de
cided to accompany tbom.
The party remaining went out,
some to rumble in the pino woods, some
to the concert in the casino. Keturu
Injj toward dinnor tlmo, they found
that u tologruin bad boon rocoived
ft oiu Miss Millcont Paul, bespeuklng a
loom. There was a shout of delight
On reading tho telegram. Mllllcont
1'anl was known to sumo of tho party,
und two of t hem bad boon ber sehool
mntoH at a fashionable sominary three
?'Millcont will bo tho rosoleaf on
our cup of happiness," said ono : "uud
bow fortunate that thoro is room foi*
her at our tablo."
Tbo dlnuor bell rang, and tho merry
group betook thomsolvcsto tho dining
room. Two chairs were ttirnod down
nt the tublo.
"Who has como V" tho guests In
quired Of Ono another.
As they took thoir scats, a man and
his wife entered, in a hesitating man
ner, ivud wore given tho chairs. Swllt
glances were diroctod nt them, and
Bide looks exchnngod. They were
evidently plain, hand-working people,
entirely unaccustomod to traveling,
and to ly;?el lire*. " In. an iustunt the
orjglearparty became a clique. They
hardly concealod their disliko of these
now-comore, who bad brought among
them a personality that jarred on all
their sonso of what was stylish, con
ventional and ugrecublo. Tho two
strangers ato hoartlly, helped them
selves to what they wanted, finished
thoir moal, aud left tho table, boforc
tbo rost of tbo company had rcachod
their nuts uud raisins.
"Did youcvor?" " 1 call it au out
rage, forcing such pooplo on us."
"Tho ploughman had hotter stay at
homo and plough." "His'hundt: took
away my appotlto." "I hope they arc
not going to stay over night."
The oltonding couple spent tho after
noon walking about to see tho viows,
and then sat out in tho piazza till sup
per tlmo. Aftor supper, tho criticism
"They'ro going to stay. Thoir
trunk has gone up to No. 14." "What
will Millcont Paul say? She will have
to sit next to tbom. She'll freeze
them with ono glance when sho sees
that hand reaching In front of 'nor for
"Oh, como now !" said tho brother
of tho last speaker I "you know they
needed the buttor, and you should
have passed It, scolng tho waiter was
not on hand."
" Hush ! I'm too provoked for any
thing. Wo wero such a nico party till
those folks pushed in. And when
MUlcent is coming, too ! It just spoils
Next day, while tho newcomers
wero out, Millcont Paul arrived amid
tho wolcomlng oxclamations of her
friends. Sho was a tall, slondorgirl,
with an anlmuted countenance, fash
ionably dressed, carrying gold eye
glasses, and holding her head aloft in
a way peculiarly bor own. Sho had
plenty to say, said it well, and was at
oaco tbo contro of*everything.
At dinner time sho took too vacant
seat, and was just receiving her pinto
^ of sodp, when tho much-criticised
couple came in. The guests wore all
curiously watchful, but Miss Paul
seomed to notlco nothing. She was
Jflving a vivid description of her
ournoy. Suddently she paused an in
" I bog your pardon!" sho said,
Kleasantly, as her ombarrussed noigh
or attempted, rather awkwardly, to
reach the salt, und, placing it con
veniently noar, sho resumed hor de
"May I trouble you for tho popper?"
ehe asked him a little later; "not
-black, I profor white. Thank you."
And sho spoke in oxactly tho sumo
tono as when sho asked handsome
young Mr. Waring, across tho tablo,
if ho know when the mail wont out.
He admired her none the less for it.
"Sho hue a broader outlook than
the rest of us," he thought to hlmsolf.
A trip to tho Notch was planned for
tho noxt day, to go In tlm morning
and return at night. Thoro were
enough to fill two mountain wugons.
No, not quite enough. Thoso who
counted found thoro would bo room for
? tWO more. '
"Don't mention it, or Mr. Wilbur
and his wifo may offer to go," said ono
lady, with u touch of irritation in hor
" Oh 1 wo can't have them." said ono
of tho girls who had bcou Miss rani's
schoolmate, "can wo Milicont?"
" Why not?" asked Miss Paul.
Oh ! why, because?you know?
no doubt thoy are oxcoliont people,
but how they would look along with
"My dear Hotty," said Miss Paul,
"why bo narrow? Why voluntarily
llvo in a groove? I have found tho
most interesting people in the most un
expected places. Don't turn your back
? upon your fellow-creaturos."
Mr. Waring stopped into tho hall
whore tho Wiiburs stood diffidently
^ examining the last yoar's register.
" Would you like to tako tho trip
/ to vho Notch, to-ruori ow, with tho rost
' of tho party ?" he oskod, cordially.
" We would llko It very much," said
"Very much indood!" echoed hla
"Tho oxpense la three dollars for
"That's all right," said tho man.
"And now which of us will have to
?U next them ?" murmured tho girls
In tho parlor.
But whon the teams woro roady tho
noxt morning, it was Miss Paul who
gracofully and unconcornodly oltmbod
over tho whooland sat by tho Wilburs.
It was not that sho proferrod tbo
neat, oxcopt as she folt instinctively
that they wero at a little disadvant
age with the othors, and it was, per
haps, one secret of hor porfeot boarlng
in social circ.es that her private rule
of polltenoss was tho littlo'old-fashion
?Poutnese h lodo und to nay
Tho kindest thing In the kindest way."
Tho party was a morry ono : they
sang songs-and waved tho hotel colors
)vo a'tong, oaoh wagon drawn
by four splondid while horses. They
stopped at the lake to enjoy boating
/and U> >?oar the. echo. While thoy
floated on the water, Mhs Pun), sang

? It v. Tncro were other i trtio* out, u
tally ho coachfuh and soveraf. teams
coming from different directions; but
noontimo found them all either dining
at the nearest hotel or lunching in the
woods close by.
A party of Southerners, driving up
iu a surrey, espied Milicent Paul,
and bailed her enthusiastically. She
brought them to her own party under
the trees, and said, as she presented
" Tboso travelers aro from Georgia.
We met in Washington, last winter,
and became friends."
Mr. Wilbur experienced a slight
mental shock. Ills father had lost
lx>th legs In the war, and ho himself
had novor 'thought of a Southerner
excopt as a foe at hoart. Yot hero
woro those people bowing to him with
the rest, In cordial, pleasant fashion.
Language had not beeu given to Mr.
Wilbur for the purpose of concealing
bis thought. He looked earnestly at
the stranger nearest him.
" I never oxpeotod to meet a South
ern muu." ho said, in blunt tones;
" toy father was inado a crlpplo in tho

the Southern man, gently. "But it is

"So wo have?so wo have !" said
Mr. Wilbur, and the two shook hands
silontly. This sceno cscapod the
notice of tho rest of the company, who
had at onco onguged in lively conver
sation : but to both men it was one of
tboso llttlo strokes that help to ohisel
"Oh, what a beautiful, beautiful
day among the mountains this has
boon IV said Milicent Paul, when they
were homoward bound. "I hope you
havo enjoyod It, too Mrs. Wilbur."
" I have, vory much. I shull novor
forget It," said tho qulot llttlo woman,
her fuco glowing.
Tho Wilburs loft, tho *?oxt day.
Miss I !aul shook hands with thorn
whon thoy wont, and roost of tho
others did tho same. Thoy wont away
happy und satisfied. Thoy said to
oach other It had had been a good
holiday. It was a llttlo awkward at
first among strangers, but It hod all
ended pleasantly, und thoy hud soon so
" Aro you going to correspond with
them, Milicent?" asked her old school
"Hotty, dear," said Mtlloont, "you
really must opou your oyos wider, and
sec the world you live In ; you will find
it w ill repay you. Tho Wilburs aro only
passing acquaintances, like many
others; we may never moot them again.
But in conversing, I found out two or
three llttlo things which may interest
you. When Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur
woro marriod, ten years ogo, his
mother hud just died, and thoro woro
brothers and slaters, besides tho
crippled father, to bo carod for. Mrs.
Wit our and hor husband put their
shoulders choorfully to the wheol,
and worked together. It was farm
life and farm work. Tho fathor died,

So this year, whon buying and cauning

a llttlo holiday, andsoo tho mountains.
Neither of thorn ovor saw a mountain

" So am I," said Hotty.
"Another llttlo thing came out, too.
I found out whore thoy Uvo. Thoy

I exclaimed, 'two rows of piuks. tho
bluest larkspurs In tho world, and tho
reddest popples ?" Yes, that was it,
she said. Why, girls, I always look

A GOOD MAN GONE.
A Prominent Farmer of York County
Mr. Robort T. Biggins, a woll known
and prominent oitizen of York County,
died at his homo at Blalrsvlllo recently.
Mr. Biggins wus born on tho 14th day
of duly, 1847. His educational oppor
tunities wore confined to the common
schools of the neighborhood ; but boing
an industrious young man of bright
iutelloct, ho acquirod u knowlodgo of
men and things, which, in afterlife,
gavo him a Ifigh standing among his
followmon in whatovor calling.
Upon tho call for tho young men of
1(> years of ago, Mr. Biggins wont to
tho war. Hostilities woro nearly at a
closo at tho timo, howover, and ho was
novor engaged in a regular battle.
Returning homo ho wont to work
on a farm, and on November 10,
18(58, ho was married to Miss B. N.
Warllck, of Blalrsvlllo.
Becoming a member shortly after
tho incoption of tho organization, Mr.
Biggins was connected with all tho
more important operations of the
kuklux in this section during tho ox
istonce of tho klans. Shortly after
martial law was doolurod, ho wus ar
rested by the military authorltlos and
incarcerated in jail on various gravo
charges, Including conspiracy and mur
dor. Iiis imprisonment commonced in
tho lattor purt of 1871, and for a llttlo
more than throo. years ho was trans
ferred first to ono jail aud thon anothor.
A portion of tho timo ho was in Char
lotto, thon In Columbia, and finally In
York. During his imprisonment, the
military authorities used all the arts
In their power to-sooure from him a
confession that would implicate his
companions. Thoy threatened, per
secuted, and ovon offered him his
liborty, for tho desired information,
but ho told nothing. During the last
two years of his imprisonment, ho and
his companion, Mr. IC. B. Sapocb, had
tho keys of tho jail, and the only bar
rier to liborty was tholr porsonal hon
or. But thoy stood tho raokot to tho
end. In June 1874, Mr. Biggins was
transferred to Albany, N. YT, penlton
tiary. Ho romainod thoro until Chrlst
mus of tho samo year, whon, through
tho continued ofTorts of friends at homo,
ho wns granted a pardon and allowed
to roturn to his family.
Several yoars ago, Mr. Biggins was
oleoted to tho ofhco of county commis
sioner. At that timo, under the law,
the duty of suppressing tho Illegal salo
of intoxicating liquor outside the in
corporated towns, foil on tho county
comiuilsiuners. Truo to his duty, Mr.
Biggins started a erusado against the
liquor doalors. Ho aroused tho bitter
ness of those doalors and their frionds
against him aud when he offered for
re-election, ho.was dofeated by a small
minority. Two yoars ago tho State
legislature elected him as a raombor
of the hoard of penitentiary directors.
Ho has all along taken a doep and con
scientious Interest in his work, and Is
entltlod to much of tho credit for tho
elllclent run..nor In which that Institu
tion has been managod during the
Becoming a mombor of tho Alllanoo
at Its first organization In this county,
ho soon began to tako a leading place
In tho councils of the order, and at its
lost annual meeting was dented presi
dent of the county oiganizatlou. Ho
was also a loading Farmors' Movomont
man in this county, and in polities was
a sincere and conscientious Reformer,
who had the ontiro confidence of all
with whom he camo in contact. It Is
universally admitted that in politics
bin motives /have always been pure,
THE ONE-nousE POLITICIAN.
There's mnny changes in this earth,
While some arc dyiugsoine have birth,
And some take new position;
Home thm wear ort and some decay.
There's one thing here aud here to stay.
The one-horse politician
While modest men with Judgment clear
Don't claim to give one-half they hear
The proper exposition;
With wisdom in abundant store
He known it all and something more?
The one-horse politician.
He knows what motives prompt each deed,
And knows tust what the people noed
. To better their condition ;
The sick, the troubled and the poor.
He knows exactly how to cure,
That onc-horso politician.
He knows just where dishonor lies,
Knows who are weak and who arc wise,
Aud who above suspicion;
His party lenders and their nrew
Can do no wrong, they're always true,
sayu the one-horse politician.
He knows the government bv heart,
Knows all its wants in ev'ry part,
And ev'ry man's condition ;
Ho otdy wantsa half a view
To read the tariff bill clear through,
That one-horse politician.
The income tax without a doubt
He knows just bow to cipher out
And put in right notation ;
Just how the silver hill should go,
In half a second ho can show,
That one-horse politician.
And whether Uncle Sam should own
The railroad, telegraph and 'phone
He knows by intuition;
He knows just how this land of ours
Should treat with all the foreign powers?
That one-horse politician.
His own affairs are badly mixed,!
A mortgage deed is firmly fixed,
On all of his posser sions;
Yet ho can toll us how to guide
Our nation's finance, with much pride,
That one-horse politician.
His voice iB loud, his lungs are strong,
Hin mouth is wide, his tongue is long,
Vibrating, with ambition;
Small is the calibre he'll score,
And yet we have no greater bore
Than the one horse politician.
THE NOBLE ART OF LYING.
A Woman Thinks it a Necessity In So

" Everybody should know how to lie
well," said a woman. "Ono oannot
llvo in the world with any degree of
Seace and comfort without lying a good
oal, and ono ought to bo able to do it
well. Every ono knows that a good
liar must have a good momory. Other
things, too, are neoessary. A small
vocabulary for ono; tho fower words
the better. Whon you are lying, stick
to facts, If I may put It that way, and
loave out detail. Novor volunteer a
lie. An unnecessary Ho Is as dangor
ou8 as tho truth. Don't toll improb
able Hob. To tell an improbablo llo Is
morely plucky; It Isn't art. Always bo
whole-soled about your lios. Don't bo
niggardly and spoil a good llo by patch
iug it up with half truth. Au artistic
liar will omploy tho truth as a sort of
background, but ho won't mix it in a
weak - minded way calculated to destroy
all real effect."
In Cambridge, Ind., llvod a well
known old gentleman by the name of
Josiah Nixon, who in early boyhood
had acquired tho habit of gross exag
geration. Tho habit had grown upon
him so that he bellovod ovorythlqg ho
said was tho truth, no matter how
great tho exaggeration. After he had
reached tho ripe ago of throe-score
and ten somo of tho deacons in the
church thought It was too much liko
lying to pass unnotleod, and It was de
cided after a groat doal of considera
tion, that tho old gontloman be

his door, tolling a small clrclo of
neighbors about tho way the pioneers
had to live tho gato opened and tho
delegation of deacons filed In.
? " Yos," the old gontloman was say
ing, "we had hard times then. I
lived two years on grass and hiokory
bark on Sunduys. Wo uso to call Sun
days 1 bark days ' on that account, and
that's tho only way wo oould toll when
Sunday came. Boars! I soo 1,200 great
big varmints onct around our camp,
and I killed? %
"Undo Josiah," broke in ono of the
deacons, " wo have coine to seo you
about this habit of yours. You have
tho unploasaut bablt of forgetting tho
truth whon talking, and wo have come
to remonstrate with you."
"I know it, deacon," ropllod tho old
man, as ho looked around. " I know
it, and I want to toll you that I have
grioved over that fallin' of mine 500,000
times a day for tho past 200 years."
Tho .Memphis Commercial has boon
moved to pay editorial trlbuto to liars.
Wo do not know whether it Is moved
by that follow fooling which makes us
wondorous kind, or wrothor ho Is actu
ated by pure magnanimity. Our con
temporary writes as ono having full
knowledge of tho subject, but whether
It writes from the standpoint of an ex
port, or has boeu movod by admiration
for tho talent of somo liar by whom it

tho same. The Commercial says :
Who sots the great enterprise, afloat ?
Who Is tho o?''glnntor of vast invest

The truth is, the liar has as many

Jonah Held Up as An Example to
Preachers on ThtsJjIue.*
The Ram's Horn, which is a novelty
in religious journalism, has the follow

"A romai'kably notlcoablo thing
about Jonah is that whon ho boarded
the ship for TarshiBh, he paid the faro
himself. He didn't try to get a pass on
account of his povorty, or expect, a re
duction bee a iso he was a preoehor, but
pulled out his wallet and laid down the
cash, and went to his state-room with
out any lotting down in his solf-re
speot. If ho had any such thing as a
ministerial vhine, he left it behind
him when he traveled. He did not go
go the capi iiu .with a long face and
complain that God had boon taking
such poor ca o of him that unless ho
cold travel aV nominal ratos ho couldn't
f;o on that si Ip, but ho paid the fare
n full, and he paid it out of .uouey
ho found in Mb own pocket.
"Unlike Jonah, thero are some
preachers who are not as anxious ab
they should be to render an honest
equivalent for what they got, and then
there are otl era who hurt the cause of
God by always boing in a bogging atti
tude for tho c.huch. Jobus Christ was
poor but he never begged. God always
put it into the heart of somebody to
minister to him according to his need,
and he is still taking care of his ser
vants who nre faithful. A law was
handed down to Moses from heaven
that the fa it if ul ox who trod out tho
grain should not be muzzled, and this
ought to bo c vldonce enough that God
means that tho prouchor who is any

eat. The ox didn't hu>ve to moan and
groan for sttnw enough to keep him.
alllvo, but had a God-glvon right to

wanted it. C u-tainly there is no reason
why the fait iful minister should not
havo rost from anxloty about temporal
things, in bedoving that tho God whom
ho serves wi .1 supply all his temporal
needs. Abort the last thing Christ d.d
for his disc plos was to prepare for

SAVI NO SWEET POTATOES.
Directions as to Keeping Through the
In keeping sweet potatoes through
tho wintor months, or from harvest
till harvest time again, a fow essen
tials of success must bo borno lu mind.
1. The potatoes must bo fully matured
when dug. 2. They must bo dug bo
foro frost, if practical or as soon there
after as possslblo, or at any rate before
tho oi'own of the potato becomes frost
bitten. A potato that Is cold bitten
cannot and will not keep. 3. They
must bo kopt cloar of frost, rain and
moisturo rlsiug from below. 4. They
should bo covorod lightly until thoy
havo gouo through their sweat, and
are thoroughly dry, putting on more
cover as the weather grows colder,
until by the timo sevoro weather sots I
In there should bo sufficient dry dirt I
above and around thorn to elTootually
exclude all frost.
One fact to which wo wish to call
special attention is that inoro potatoes
are lost annually through wrapping
them up) In their wintoricoat too early
and keeping them too warm than are
lost by undue exposure to cold. In
handling thoin use boxes, novor
baskets. Sort out all that are cut,
broken, bruised or abraded for Im
mediate use. They may bo fed to
bogs, cows and even horses.
They may be kept in bank. It Is
advisablo not to bank exceeding fifty
bushels in any single pilo. They may
bo collared in bulk or in barrels, boxes,
bins or hogsheads, tbo interstices
filled with dry sand or any dry fine
dust, the cellars to be jry and airy
and clear of frost. In tho absenco of
sand or dry lino dirt, chaff, cut hay or
straw, cotton sood, motes from tbo gin,
or even leaves will answer. In cellar
ing them, tho smaller tho piles, tho
easier they can bo looked through and
any rotton ones taken out.
In banking it is host to disturb the
bank as little us possible. After pota
toes are once dry, after going through
their sweat, if any of them rot it us
ually a dry rot, aud does not spread to
any great extent. A moderate amount
of dampness does not hurt them, but
water standing around them either in
tho Held, while growing, or after thoy
are banked away, causes them to sour
\ hen they speedily rot.

The ^Soveii "Wonder* of Korea.
According' to n Chinese authority,
Korea, like the world of the anolents,
has its " sown wonders." Briefly
stated, thoy are as follows:
First. A hot rulnoral spring near
Kin Shantao, the healing properties of
which atv oolieved by the peoplo to be
miruoulou8. No matter what disease
may afflict the patient, a dip in tho
water proves efficacious.'
The second wonder is two springs,
situated ata considerable distance from
each other ; in fact, tboy have breadth
of tho entiro peninsula between thorn.
Thoy havo two pecularitloB?when one
is full tho other is always empty ; aud,
notwithstanding tho faet that thoy aro
connected by a subterranean passage,
one is bitter and the other puio and

?a cavern from which a wintry wind
perpetually blows. The forco of tho
wind from tho cave is such that a strong
man cannot stand before it.
A forostthat cannot be eradicated is
the fourth wonder. No mutter what
injury is done to the roots of the trees,
which arc largo pines, tboy will sprout
up again directly, like tho phcornx
from nur ashes.
Tho fifth is the most wonderful of
all. It Is tho famous " flouting stone."
It stands, or Hconis to stund, in front of
tho palaoo erected in its houor. It is
an irrogular cubo of great bulk. It
appears to bo resting on tho ground,
