LAURENS S. C, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1900.
IN A SINGLE NIGHT.
The Terrible Trial of a Young
Wife I,eft on Guard.
" What a beautiful young woman !
And yet her hair ib white ad snow."
"And hi r complexion fresh as is h
chilli' Strange, la it cot v"
Thus spoke two h ungers on a hotel
porch. Hut they did not know the his
torv of that snowy hair.
From tho time Harry Wells fell ;i
lovo with Mamlo Clausen at church
social? until the marriage in the F is.
Frobbytcrian ch.ureb, tho entire com
raunity gave minute consideration u
to~.ir alTalrd. Mamie's father, John
Clauson, was a prominent OOOQiniSSiou
morchant in a Pennsylvania town,
goneraliy considered wealthy, and a<
ways lived like u man of means
Mamie waa pretty, dashing, a local
bollo, and a general favorite. Harry's
family lived a few mi lea from town,
nd thoy, too, wero people ol reputa
tion in the county.
The marriage in every way a
suitable ono Ilarry was idueatod at
Prlncotin, and although he had atone
time the reputation ol being wild, he
had sobered down and was such a
f runic, manly young fellow that no was
grnorally forgiven any Indiscretion.
Toe marriage wks the oocaslou of
general rejoicing. Mamies father
gave hor an unusually good send-otT,
and the details were sent far and widi
through tho State. Harry hud studied
law for a while and had settled down
Into a country notary, drawing up
deeds, and doing haeuwork of that
sort. They llvod about four miles out
of town, and two miles from old John's.
Uo had built them a pretty modern
cottage on a detached oortion of bis
farm. Harry had hist 111 je, an orna
mental little structure, a lew rods froui
the house, aud there trey lived as
happy as two birds.
Gradually Harry picked up businoss,
and finally, through Ills father, he he
came truoteo for some minor heirs.
They were an od- lot of children, ff Ith
a half crazy mother, and no end of
coal lands and mining Investments. Ii
was a good thing for Ilarry, although
it gave a naturally lazy man some ad
ditional w0''k. Tho worst thing whs I
that it obliged him to go to Sennit ui
now and then, and leave Mamio. When
IItrry had to go away Mamie would
get in her pnaeton and drive to town,
and there were always some of the
young people ready to go out and beep
her company. Ilarry always InslstoJ
that she most not stay alone. For a
law-abiding S ate, Pennsylvania has a
pretty rough element in it, and there
is a general sense of uneasiness.
Oae August afternoon Harry had an
unexpected summons to go to Scrantoo
about a suit clnnected with the minor
heirs. Ho had recently sold somo of
thoir property and had been making
various collections, which left in his
bands hbojt $4,500. When ho found
tnat ho had to go oil at a few moments'
notice ho wrapped up a bundle of
papers and thig money and took them
Into, the houso. Mamio was making
preparations for a pionlo they were to
go to the nt xt day, and begged him to
wait until the day after.
"Hut, my dear child, I haven't time
even to go to town and put these in
tho bacU, to you'll have to take care of
thorn. I'll try and get back in two
days at the furthest, meanwhile no
body will know that the money is
Then he explained to her the value
of tho papers and handed her a canvas
bag, Id wulch win the $4,000 belonging
to the minor heirs.
" Whera will I keep It, Harry? B.<
tweon tbo mattresses ?''
"Just like a woman ! No. Hut 1
declare 1 don't know where to tell you.
The most Insecure place apparently is
often tho most secure. Any place,
dear, but between tho maltreaso . I
leave that to you. Hut you must guard
it, If necessary, witn your life ; for re
member the money is not ours, and at
all hazards 1 am responsible. I dou't
really suppost mere is the least danger,
for no one kno ws I ha"o it. Hut one
ought to take proper precautions, and
I beg of you not to admit any tramps
while I am gone. Teil Sarah not even
to allow them to eat a biscuit."
"All right, dear ; v. e won't lot the
trampa have a drink, even, and 1 11
take caro of tho money, you may bi
Harry bade his wife g< od-hye, and
Mamie gave up the picnic. At the
end of two days she reocivod a ol -
gram from him, saying he had been
detained, and telling her to got some
one to stay with her fc r two days,
when he would be at home. Sho drove
Into town and ono of hor old friends
wont out with her. At tho end of two
days sho had another telegram saying
that he waa detained until the next
day. Her friend went homo, and in
plaoo of Harry camo a third telegram,
and so evory day for ton dnys ho wa?
expeoted homo, and overy dify camo a
disappointing telegram. Hy this time
she bad becomo accustomed to her
charge, which she had set llko a ban
of sood beans in a corner of a dark
cloeot opening from her room.
The afternoon of tho tenth day was
a hot, murky afternoon. Mamie hao
gone upstairs to take a nap and ro
fresh beforo dressing to meet Harry,
who was expected home after the
longest ah.-enee he hud over made from
After a time Sarah camo up and tolii
her there was a tramp down sta'rs
who wantod something to oat und win
would not be driven ell.
" You oughtn't to leave him a
minute alono, Sarah. Go down am;
watch him, and I will come down uno
send him oil."
Sho dressed hi rself q sickly and
went down stairs, tur prised m Ii i?
how late it had gn wn. W i n .du

messenger with ai other telegram,
but tho next day without fall, ll.i'-ry

"An' spoil In* everything feme t?

Sarah, not lndispcsod to have a chai
over hor work.
Mamlo found a gracohs - ooklnp
fellow, unbhftvon and llhdrosaed, who,
with a certain gentlemanly instinct
rose up as she came In.

Women are soft-hoartod creatures.

felt that after all tney were really In

sho said. ''There Is u loft to the
house, a sort of garret, which is vory
comfortable. It is closed with a trap
door, and you may tloep on tho lounge
there if you will allow us to lock tho
door ou tho outside."
" Bless my stars and garters !" ho
said, looking; at her curiously. " [
don't cure If you lock the door."
Tney took him upstairs, and ho
el Imbed up tho steep attic stairs. Tho
women shut tho door as ho politely
huil-3 them good-night, and they fasten
ed the padlock, hearing Ikiin chuckle
to himself as he kicked off his boots.
"I'd lake tho koy, mum," said Sarah.
Mamlo took tho key with her and
the two descended to shut up the
uous3. After thoy had made every
thing secure they went back Upstars.
" You must sleep in my room to
night, Sarah," tho mistress said.
Sarah dragged In her bedding and
made a pallet on the floor, and then,
after the custom of women, they ex
amined the closets, looked under the
bed and oiled tho ohulrs against tho
locked door. The rain was still fall
ing heavily and the night black ub
Irk. The mistress and maid went to
bej, and, although worried and anxious,
went to sleep.
After midnight Mamlo found Inr
SOlf awake and u bright light shining
in the room. Sue started up uud saw
that it was the moonlight. The storm
had cleared away at last. She got up,
unable to compose herself Immediate
ly, und wont to tho window. The
moon was shining brightly. As she
stood looking at tho peaceful scone
oofore her sho saw uwny down the
road, for it was as bright as day,
several horsemen, it was such an un
usual sight at this hour th'it sho stood
watching them us thoy camu nearer.
To her surprise, they turned uo tho
lane leading toward her house, and on
reaching the gate came into tho yurd.
aho was ulmost paralyzed with fear.
The truth 11 tshed across her. Thoy
must have learned that she was alone?
that she had this money, und thoy had
come to get it. For a moment she was
|jarul}/..d. She remeinlercdf Harry's
last words : " You must guard it with
your life if necessary."
Sho ran to the a'ooplnp Sarah and
wakened her. Sho got down Harry's
r 11 \ Tho sleeping girl was soon
thorough../ a.vuke, and she explained
to her their condition.
" It's the tramp that's done It."
"The tramp? No. Surah, the key,
the key of the attic.''
She 11 ;w up the Stairs, unlocked the
padlocks and opened the trup. The
man sprang up at the sound.
'"Come, eomo witn mo." His own
senses alert and hearing tho noise of
who horse below and the steps about
the house, ho followed her without u
word. At the foot of the stairs sho
'? I have a large sum of money in tho
house, and those men havo eomo to get
it, thioking I am alone If they kill me
that money must bo guarded."
What have you ? 1'istols, shot
guns?" ho whispered, taking in tho
" Hero is my husband's rills. It is
" Hist ! Whoro are they going to
brouk in?" Tho ?tops came boldly on
tho piazza to tho front door.
"(Jet behind mc. 1 will lire at the
lirst man who enters. How many bar
rels arc thoro ?''
"Six, all loaded."
" Vo.-y well. Keep this cano iu your
hand for mo iu cuso 1 need it."
"There was DO storming of shutters.
They heard tho key applied to tho
door softly. It ope.nod, and u man fol
lowed by two others confidently en
tered. Tho ^rst fiu'uro walked direct
ly to tho stairs. He hud taken but ?
step when thrco shots camo in rapid
succession. There was a heavy thud ;
this man dropped and the other two
turned and tied. Sarah ran to the
window und two horses galloped down
" Don't faint, madam ; thoro is work
yet to do," said the tramp.
Mamio cuught hold of the rail for
support, and Uiod wont Into the room.
" Got a cundlo. Surah."
They lighted a candle and gavo It to
the trnmp, who wont down stuirs, the
two women following with brandy unu
Arnrr-on'tt. Tho man bad fallen back
a ?rd and lay-with his faco and bond
toward tho door.
" Aha," said tho tramp curiously,
holding tho light and peering into the
dead mao's face, " he's fixed. Shot
through tho head*"
Mamio advanced and gazed at the
vhito face, uorOSS which a thin, d. ath
like stream cf blood wus trickling.
Sho fell buck with a wild shriek.
It wus her rusbana's dead body
which lay before her.?Argonaut.

If a tniin can dodge around tho 20th
contury question it la a Utting time for
him to consider tho shrinkage of timo
slnco ho was a boy, and to ponder upon
tho reason why tho jeira grow shorter
and shorter as he grows older and wiser,
and how tho period Is surely com log
when there will bo no yearn or months
and time will he no more. According
to scripture tills thing called timo is a
perishable, elastic and compressible
jroatlon adapted to man in his state of
probation and not at all necessary to
the.Croalor who said " hoforo tho world
was made I am." God al ways speaks of
himself in tho present tei.s) "lam."
H i Is one eternal DOW without bigln
nitig of years or ond of days. We can
not comprehend this, but as wo near
the goal we can almost catch a glimpse
of its possibility. That time is com
pres?iblo and elastic all of us havo cx
perl?noed for sometimes the hoars
seem very long and sometimes vcrv
short. In uir dreams wo sometimes
condense hours and dayB of events in a
few delirious moments. 1 Dover shall
lorgot tho anxiety anil agony of a long
elTort to keep my brother from lighting
a duel and now I helped to write all
tho correj^pondence between him aim
his adversary and how at tho last tho
duel could not he avoided and how 1
carefully selected and loaded his pistol
and measured olT the distance ami then
made another effort to pacify and ad
just and prevent the duel, hut all in
vain, and he stood to tho mark
and hred and fell. Tho report of
a gun that was tired at tho back of our
bouse at a squirrel awaked mo and it
was this report that condensed all tho
long trait* of thought and events into a
mom nt's spac 3. My wife was sitting
by my bedsldo with nor hand uuon my
feveri&h brow and declared I had not
boen usleep more than a minute?and
yet I remembered every lino aud word
of that correspondence, and when 1 re
covered from my fover could repeat it.
Tho timo of hours was condens id into
momen's Just so those who were
thought to bo drowned and were resus
citated tell us that a panorama of their
whole life came before them as they
lost consciousness. lOvery word and
thought and deed and every scene they
had witnessed from their childhood
was as vivid anil real if It were just,
transpiring. There can bo CO doubt
about this experienceOi many persons.
It is well coo fir med.
We are just on the verge of know
ing wonderful things and my faith U
that wo wili know when wo put off this
mortal coll and our souls are released

But all s how little we do know and
how utterly helpless we are. We know
not whence wo come, nor whither wo
are jjolng. We cannot mako one hair
white or black. We nan not tell by what
mysterious power we raise our hands
or move our feet, or wink our eyelashes.
Wo cannot add a day or an hour to our
ilved, nor foresee the accidents Unit
may befall us as we, move t) and fro on
the land or sea. We cannot escape the
pestilence that walkoth at noonday nur
make ourseives secure against (ire and
Hood and famine. What pitiful crea
tures wo are, and yet wo see every
where around us young men who aro i
coneoited and proud of their manhood
Oi their money and wo see young girls
who aro vain of their beauty or thoir
dress when they played no part in the
formation of tho ono or the earning of
tho other. A beautiful woman is cloju
kin to the angels and she should bo
thankful that God mudo her s >, but
sho has no excuse in the world for
being vain. Humility is her loveliest
ornament. As for these conceited anil
haughty young men who etrut around
In line clothes that they never earned
or that they got by short cuts and dis
honorable means, they i x dto only pity
or contempt. Wnon wo look upon thorn
we can but exclaim with David, "lin d
what is man that thou art mindful of
him?*' Young men, why don't you hum
ble yourselves under the mighty hand
of God who made you, you havo not tho
remotest idea who you re today a-;d
you don't care if yoi. havent. You
havo traveled .'100,000,000 of miles oinco
tho last year and got back to tho tame
plaeo you started from. You travel
;>0 000 miles an hour and everyday
turn a summersault 2f>,OU0 miles round
and don't know It, and you don't care
if you don't. fho Greater is your on
gir.ec-ranl runs your train Without a
run-otT or a collision and you never
think of Him or thank Him. You seem i
to think that you are doing it.
1 reckon tho 20th century problem is
about settled, it is an old problem and i
perplexed mankind away back in tho I
agee. Tho q icstlon used to hi whether
tho year prior to tho birth of Christ
wa? 1, B. G., or 0 H G., and tho mathe
maticians and astronomers settled it
down at 0 B. G., and begun too new
era with 1, A. L)., and it remained 1, A
I), for 305 days. Hut aside frum this
tin problem is purely a mathematical
one, for If it takes 100 veurs to make a
er-ntury It will take 1000 years to make
IV centuries, and they will not havo
missed until next January comes.

indeed, a hero, and not a child of

It is well known to tho avcrago cit

of Admiral Dowoy und tno ofRoera and

contention of tho claimants is that the
force of tho onemy wus superior at

considered In defining the question,
Assistant Attorney Ueuural IVadt
argued against tho cla:m for $2l)U

that tho statute oxprcssly stipulated

Mr. King, who opened for tho claim
ant; , li-st explained how the amount
of tho bounty upon the eight destroyed

of Admiral Montejo showed that when
ho went to Hubig nay, j ist prior to tin
battle, ho had aboard five ships l,87f?
men, whoso regular complement war

quoted Admiral Dowoy's opinion that

agroed with Mr. Lodge. Mr. l'ettl
grew objected. Ho wanted Bneoilio In
formation, regardless of whether the
President wanted it knowu or not. Ho
launched into a sensational attack on
tlu administration. Ho charged the
government with withholding Informa
tion for political gain. " The trouble
with the imperialists," aaid M r. Petti
grew, " is that they have confounded
tho intereats of the people of the
United States with tho political de
sires and ambitions of their puny Pre
ildent and regarded him und his suc
cess as more important than a right*
ful treatment of tho Filipinos. The
fact is, this whole business is bound
up in the President's desire again to
no a candidate of his party for Presl*
Mr. l'ettigrew disoUPBed the censor
ing 6f dispatches from the Philippines.
He declared that important and signi
licant facts had boon strickiu from
news dispatches from Manila and from
" As an instance of this work," said
he, " tho Sulu treaty was mangled and
partly snopresscd until after the elec
tion in Ohio." He declared the pro
clam at Ion issued by tho President was.
on the recommendltion of Gen. Otis,
altered materially by tho President
before it was published to the Philip
pine natives. As original y drawn it
waa to his mind, a 11 it declaration of
war and when Aguinaldo and his
leaders cimo into possession of tho
original they so regarded It.
' " The whole wretched business/' de
clared Mr. Po't'grow, vehemently,
"was onoof concealment and duplicity,
Intended to deceivo not only tho p :o
o'o of the United St'-^a but also tho
islanders themselves. '
In substantiation of his charge that
tho dispatches from tho Philippines
were censored in the interests of the
administration, Mr. Pettigrow quoted
from a letter written by Mr. Kobert
M. Collins, Associated Press repre
sentative at Manila. In this letter Mr.
Collins related tho substance of an in
terview upon tho BUbjeot of censoring
dispatches which he had had with
Gen. Otis. ivlr. i VU igrew read tho
statements of Mr. Colliltf, in which h>
had said it was tho evident dStdfe of
tho olli dais to prevent certain infor
mation from reaching tho poople of
the United States. When he (Co lins)
had tiled a dispatch c attaining infor
mation which ho thought, was proper
to send to the United Sta'os ho hud
been informed by tho censor that lie
had been instructed tOCUt out anything
that might hurt tho administration.
Subsequently when ho had desired to
send a story relating to the use of
silver in the Philippines, the censor
had told him that bis instructions
wero to al'ow nothing to pan him
which wou'd bo helpful to William
Jennings Bryan In the United States.
Upon this point Mr. Pettigrow bo
cam 5 particularly sarcastic and aeain
advorte.d to what ho termed tho Pre
aident's desiro to succoo 1 himself as
President, even though es>ontlal in
formation had to bo suppressed to ac
complish that ond.
Mr. Pettigrow declared that the
President himself really began tho
war and was responsible for it. "If,"
said bo, " tho administration had had
a spars: of honor in dealing with tho
Filipinos, it would have told Gen.
Morrltt to lay tho whole truth of the
intentions of tho government before
Aguinaldo and his associates." Ho be
lieved this would have averted half
tho trouble. Tho shooting by United
Statos Bontrb s of tho Filipinos
that night, of Fob. Ith, tho oponing of
hostilities, 'va-, lie said, " a foul blow
and wo wore guilty of duplicity and
treachery in killing those men.
"That wo had tired tho first shot

Even aftor the lighting had begun,
be said, an effort was made by Aeui
naldo to seoure a suspension of hosti
lities, but he had been told by Con O l&
that now tho lighting had been begun
it must contfnuo to tho grim end.
"If," said Mr. Pettigrow, " I wero a
Filipino I would light until 1 was gray
against tho unholy aggression of the
Halted States. if this country is
wrong, this country could tako no
grandor position before tho nations of
the world than to admit tnat it Is
