The very excellent woman who was
cook in iny father's household was af
flicted with a actiouu impairment of
vision in the last years of her service.
1 remember how she used to take a big
pinch of salt and wave it over a roast
of meat with the mistaken notion that
she was dropping a little hete and
there. Then she would suddenly open
her hand and all the salt would fall in
one place. It is thus that blind fate
seasons our lives with the condiment
of adventure. As a rule we get it in
This philosophical reflection is sug
gested by tho recent remarkable expe
rience of a young friend of mine. She
is a charming girl, blond, petite ami
graceful and possessed of a very prom
ising voice, for tho cultivation of which
she came to the city. She took up her
abode in a genteel boarding house
where some friends of hers were living,
and everything was very ordinary ami
commonplace. Her early life had run
as quiet as tho brooks mentioned by
BpartOOUS, the gladiator, and there was
no reason to suppose that it would not
continue to do 30.
She had been to the theater with her J
friends and bad had a bit of supper ,
and was homo again a little after mid
night. As she entered the dark room
tho. moon peeped in through the win
dow at her. It was a thin, silver cres
cent and it looked very nice up there
in tho sky. Edith threw a couple of
cushions on the door by tho window
and Bat thoro gazing out at tho heavens.
There wns nothing especially romantic
about it?the moon and the stars were
pretty; that was all.
How long she sat there she docs not
know. She was suddenly startled by
the opening and closing of a door.
The key turned in tho lock, and then
she heard the ring of it as it fell to the i
Facing about she saw tho dark tig
ure of a man by tho door. The form
was barely distinguishable in the
gloom. Edith tried to scream, but,
greatly to her surprise, her voice
wouldn't serve her; it seemed to be
cogged liko one's limbs in a nightmare.
This was surprise, not fear.
The intruder heard her, howovoi.
He had been standing in a stooping
position, with his ear against the door,
but he sprang away from it and faced
her at tho sound of her choked cry.
"You keep still 1" he said in a voice
so monstrously hoarse and rough that
Bho knew it must be assumed. "It*
you make a noise, I'll kill you I"
There was just light enough for her to
see a shining object in the hand that
was outstretched toward her.
tidith was brave; most people are
who have been guarded from alarms
during their youth. What she lacked
was not courage, but experience.
Courage said: "Keep cool. Don't
make a fuss. Ho won't hurt you."
Experience would have said: "Yell ! "
Yell liko a scared elephant I It's the
only chance you've got I"
"What do you want f" she demand
ed. "What are you doing here ?"
"Keep still I" he said in a growling
Edith kept still. It seemed to her
that there had never been any
such stillucs8 before. The house was
like a tomb, and the whole city out
side was listening and forgot to mur
"I must think, I must think," the
girl was saying to herself, but she
couldn't think. She knew that this
man was a burglar, but all her other
ideas weut whirling round and round
in absurd eon fusion.
There was a sound of steps in the
hall. Tho door of the large room at
the rear end on tho same door was
opened. Edith had never seen tho
lodger there, but she knew the room
was occupied by a man. She opened
her mouth to scream.
Now, the burglar, being an expe
rienced person, knew perfectly well
that this impulse would seize her at
that moment. He knew also that if
he sprang upon her her voice would
be released from her throat. Instead
he merely thrust his revolver close to
her face. The sudden clear view of
this object has almost a hypnotic In
fluence. Instead of screaming she
started back with a gusp and threw up
her hands as if to waid off a bullet.
"I ain't goin' to hurt you," growled
the man. "I'm goin' to stay here
about two minutes, and then I'm goin'
to skip. Don't you yell aficr I'm
gone, because if you do I'll come back
and fix you for it. Have you got any
"1 have only a few cents," she said,
and, greatly to her surprise, he seem
ed to know that she was telling the
"Gimme that watch," he continued,
and, with wild rage in her heart, min
gled with contempt of herself for yield
ing, she gave him the diamond stud
ded trinket that was her most cherished
How he knew that she had a watch
was a mystery to hor, oven in that
moment. Poor child I She had clutch
ed at it in tho bosom of her dress the
instant he had asked her for her money.
Ho took it in his hand, and then
somo sudden change seemed to come
over him. Ho sprang hack to tho
door and put his head against it for a
moment. Then, with frantic haste,
he began to feel around on the floor
for the koy. He seemed not to pay
any attention to her, and this was so
surprising that she forgot to cry out,
though she could have done it in safety.
She saw that he was fumbling in his
pockots. Then he tried the door with
out any attempt to do so quietly. It
rattled under his hand, hut it was
heavy and strong.
"Get matches l" he called over his
shouldor to her. "Light a match aud
hold it down here on the lloor."
She was more than willing to help
hi in get out oven though he hrd her
watch, and she ran toward him, fancy
ing that she knew where the key had
fallen. In that instant she realised
what was in his mind.
As sh? runic, forward a strong aud
acrid blast Struck Oer in tho face.
Smoko was whirling in around the door.
A sudden and awful cry arose from
tho lower part of the houso.
"There ain't any lire oscape on this
houso 1" said the man in a tone thai
would have frightened an iron image,
it was so full of terror. "We're locked

then groveled on the door seeking the
key. lie was talking to himself. His
voice had taken on a different tone.
"I must have set it afire with thoso

Edith was on the floor by this time,
groping about as madly as he was.
And that is her last memory of the
Confused and vague impressions
succeoded the actual recollection. She
seemed to be clutched by some crea
ture of enormous strength, to be drag-'
ged over rough placets and then up, up
in the dark, where theie was no air.
There was the sound ol* florce blown
struck upon sonic resounding substance
and suddenly a sense of pcaco and j
safety. It seemed as if she were lying
in a Held at home where she used to
play. There was no more danger or
trouble. She would have been happy
lying there but for the strange pain in
her throat, happy and content to lie
there lookiug up at the stars. The
slats ? Why, to bo sure ! There they I
were, blinking down at her, and she
was not in that tield, but on the roof
of a house. Someone was crouching
beside her and holding her head on

"We came up through the scuttle. I'll
tell you it was a hard fight. Hut don't
you worry. Here's your watch. 1 pick

He propped her against some small
structure on the roof and put the watch
in tier lap. She could see bis face clear
ly. It was a dark, handsome, manly
countenance. T?c voice was no long
er rough; it was of a deep register, but
soft and sympathetic in lone.
"You risked your life lo save me !"
"Well, I couldn't leave you there in

ed almost apologetically. "There are

"You arc very flattering," lie re
plied. "And now you won't be flight
ened if I leave you here alone? We're
quite a long way from the lire. I've
carried you over three or four roofs.
Ah, here come, some people."
A scuttle in the roof was lifted and a
man's head appeared. VJo climbed out,
another followed. There was quite a
parly, both men and womcu, who bad
come to watch the destruction of their
neighbor's property. The rescued
maiden appealed to their sympathies
and they all volunteered to accompany
her to tho street to look for her friends.
One of the men assured her that all
had escaped from the house and that
no one had been injured.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
THE SOUTH IS THREATENED.
Kxireme lit public-ant* Want to Cut
Down Representation to Actual
Mr. Wm. 10. Curtis, tho most noted
newspaper correspondent in Washing
gton, In discussing tho roapportlon
monl In Congress, writes as follows:
Tho fourteenth amcudmuut to tho
constitution of tho United Stati s pro
vides that representatives in Congress
shall ho apportioned among tho States
I according to their respective numbers,
counting tho whole number of persons
'in each State, excluding Indians not
taxed ; at when tho right to vote at
any election, etc., Is denied to any of
the male inhabitants of such State,
etc., or in any way abridged, etc., tho
basis of representation shall be reduc
ed in tho proportion which tho numb.T
of such male olt'/ona shall boar to tho
whole number of male citizens Ul yoar>
of age in each State.
The oonaus roturus, which hio now
being computed, will show tbo number
of rualo citizons In each State. The
returns from tho rocent elections in
Virginia, North Carolina, South Caro
lina, Mississippi and other of the South
ern States which have disfranchised
tho colored population will shew tho
number allowed to voto. If a ditferont
basis of calculation lu desired, tho cen
sus roturuB will glvo tho numbor of
illiterates In oach State. Several of
tho Southern States, lu order to pro
hibit nogroos from votlug, have estab
lished an oducatlonal qualification.
Persons who caunot road and write
?ro not allowed to voto unless they
served lu the Coafodorato army or
tholr parents woro voters prior to tho
adoption of tho fifteenth amoudmont.
That lots in tho " poor white trash."
An educational qualification prevails
In Massachusetts, Uhodo island and
perhaps some of tho othur States as
woll as In th" Soith, but wad adopted
for different roasons.
It Is dlracult to aoo how Congress can
ignore the fourteonth amendment in
preparing tho ruapportlonmcnt bill
which will be acted upon ut tiie next
session, and tho attention of Rjproson
tative Hopkins, who will ho chairman
of tho committee, la reapectfully di
rected to that Instrument. According
to tho constitution tho apportionment
must bo based upon tho population of
I tho different States, aftur deducting
the number of Illiterates that bavo
been disfranchised in Massachusetts,
South Carolina and olaowhere. If thie
Is not dono tho apportionment law may
bo set aside as void, If anybo ly will
tako tho trouble to bring tho matter
before tho supremo court.
Some of tho Republican loaders aro
conferring as lo tho propriety of apply
ing this constitutional provision to tho
Southern States, which would lose
about ono-thlrd and in somo cases one
half of their representation In Con
gress and In tho electoral colloge. If
tho vote of South Carolina, for exam
ple, is made a basis of apportionment,
that State will be entitled to one mem
ber of Congress, becauso the entire
number of ballots cast in the seven
Congressional districts did not exceed
tho number polled for some of tho
members from the Northern Statee.
Yet these seven South Carolina dis
tricts have seven tlmea aa much repre
sentation in Congress and the electoral
college as tho districts in the North.
If any one will tako the trouble to
look at tho returns ho will notice that
verj few Republican votes are ever
cast South of Tennessee and Missouri.
No canvass was made by the Uepubll*
cans this year in any of tho Gulf State?
or in South Carolina, Georgia or Ar
kansas. Tho reason for this was re
cently explained in the United States
Senate by Mr. Tlllman, who said " wo
cheatod thorn, wo bulldozod them, wo
sb H thom, and tlnally drove thorn
away from tho polls." Under tho Tlll
man systom, for example, Mr. Norton
of South Carolina, was olecteil to Con
gress by 1,765 votes to 151 for Mr.
Fvans, his opponont, while Mr. Cald
woil, of Illinois, received 23,2i*'l, against
21,053 for his opponent. Mr. Caldwell
alone rocolved noarly as many votes us

placed upon scavengers, tin men, etc.
Mr Orr believes that preference should
be given to white labor as long as It
can bo got, because it has had a hard
time In the ioulh in competition wltb
negro labor, aud this is tho only
sphere, as It were, set r. ddc for Its
benelil. bo far as ho io eoncorned, ho
proposes to uso white labor whenever
he can do so to t- !vantage. N gro

Saluda mill, mar Uoiumbla, where

social feature that It would bring about
would bo objeotionab'o. Tnls fooling
Is not carried to the same uxtont on
tho farnid nor lu the mines, as thero
tho labor consists principally of men,
wheroas In the cotton m?h there is a
largo number of women. Tho t( ndency
of colored labor in South Carolina is to
work for a less rate of wages man tho
whito, as they can llvoon very much
le-b, and tho effect is to hohl ilnwn
white- labor to a lower levol.
In tho matter of tho eolonis ttion of
tho negro, which has been advocated
by aomo of tho witnesses beforo tho
commission, the judgment of Mr. Orr
was that it would bo a great misfor
tune to tho South if any schomo of
colonization should bo carried out.
Negro laoor is tho beat for tho farm
that tho South can get. Negroes can
livo on leas and they can do more work
when properly treatod thao any other
olass of labor that tho South has. 15ut
for tho negro labor the South could
no* ltvo on tivo cent cotton, and In his
opinion woro It not for live cent cotton
tho South would not bo ablo to coutrol
tho cotton markets of tho world.
Mr. Orr beliovco that tho negro baa

Ray. Ur. William H. Whitsitt, lute
president of the Southern Baptist Theo
logical Horalnary, mudo u notable ad
dress before tho Baptist Congress,
which has been in session ut Rich
mond, Vu., in which ho adhered to his
old position with reference to Baptist
history, which created ^ueh a contro
versy in the denomination, and his
utterances were oven bolder than here
tofore. Dr. Whltsitt s-aid :
" Southern Baptists are divided in
sentiment. One. party asserts that Bap*
tlsts uro not I'rotestants; the other as
serts that no man can be a Baptist ex
cept in name only, who is not also a
Protestant. To hoid and teach tho
doctrine of a universal spiritual church
which, only with respect of tho inter
nal work of the spiritual truth of
grace, may he called Invisible, is alike
a mark of Protestant and of Baptist
faith. To deny that doetrine Is under
stood tobe a mark of Romanism. Many
Southern Baptists deny that doetrine.
The doctrine that baptism is essential
to salvation appeared shortly after the
apostolic age, and brought in Its wake
a baptism of necessity, which, In all
ages, has been commoniy performed by
aspersion and effusion. It was not long
before tho distinctive principle of bap
tism began by this means to bo over
thrown. Tho last man who is shown to
have hold and practiced it was Manns,
who wroto a letter to Cyprian, of Car
thago, about the year 245, in which he
appoars to have advocatod the Baptist
contention. After that dato, though
many churches and parties hold and
practiced Immersion, no record has
ever yet been discovered of any who
hold and practiced that It Is essential
to baptism until the Baptists wero
restored In 1641. Furthermore his
toric testimony regarding tho ro-lntro
ductlon of Immersion in 1641, after the
rite had long been disused, was abun
dant, definite, circumstantial, consis
tent and quite a conclusive as tho
historic testimony that Napoljon the
Kirst was named B'nperor of Franco In
1804. It Is rejeoted by our Baptists < ho
arc not I'rotestants, but that is moroly
tho result of their substantially Cath
Dr. Whltsitt declared : " So far as
present roeearch has gone, no Baptist
has been found between A. I). 245 and
1?41, yot tho exigencies of the Baptists

not lost save honor, nor will the North
dtiro to cut down our representation in
Congress--such a move woulu alienate
their new Southern converts, for
Southern Republicans aro at heart
all Ulywiiites and have uo use for the
negro in politics. Southern Republicans
have been under tho ban over since the
war, and they realize that it is because
they are alligned with the negro.
Captain Lowry is all right svhon he
says, " but for the negro in polities
the Republican party would have a
good chanco to capture and hold the
South." Tho captain Is a Republican
?a Tennesseean, a Georgian, a banker,
I and has traveled much, and his party
up North ouglit to give weight to his
opinions. Ue Is a gentleman, a man of
I integrity, and stands high In financial
circles all over the country. Financially
ho is a success ami liberal with his
money, but ho will not tako Carnegie's
advieo and give It all away before lie
dies. Tes, tho nigger is still in too
woud pile, and the jjko of It is the
nigger don't know it. There aro uot
a dozen negroes In this country who
care a straw about voting. If the white
ollieo seekers would let them alone
they wouldent go about tho polls on
election day. What is wanted i? to
purify the candidates. If this can be
done in Atlanta why not elsewhere?
Wo all rejoiced over tho election o!
Major Mlms, for ho ran for mayor as
a gentleman ami had no boelere, nor
would h<! ask any man lor his vote or
allow any corrupt jlootioneering by
his friends. Llo stubbornly refused to
promise anything to anybody, and.
strange to say, was oiected.
Hut tho Republican party 1? growing
very fast in this section, and will grow
into respectability if they will let the j
negroalono. Mr. Lowry is right. Some i
' years ago when wo had fullered a
' similar defeat my friond Newt Tumlin ]
I was greatly distressed, and told mo in
a whisper that there was only one way
j to got < ven with them, and that was to
jino 'cm. Woll, there are lots of folks
j.ning 'em around in those parts, and
.' i- hard to tell who is a Democrat
and who Is not. They teil m > that a
Democratic officeholder ami two of the
executive committee id this county
votu.l for McKinley and our neighboring
eouuty of 1'olk went for him by 50U
; majority. Maybe that i^. an evolution
that will stop the threaten.d i t-duetion
? of our representation, for our Republi
can friends don't want that to happen
any more thau we. do, and they will
lilo a protest and tight it.
What wo want at the. South is to
preserve our good name, our historic
honor and our traditions. A section
that has produced Washington, J< (Ter

and Li'-o anil Stonewall Jackson and

caused the recent strike amongst the
weavers', WAS suen hy Tho State cor
respondent and asked for a statement
as to why hIjc refused to join tho
weavers' union. She replied in sub
stance as follows :
"My husband, .1. l\ Frank.in, joined
tho union soveral months ago and is
yet a member. Shortly after ho joined
1 was RSked by several members of the
order to join and after declining, wa
asked why I objected to beoomlug a
member. I told them that after -.o k
ing all day, when night eamo I did not
care to belong to any orJ:!r th i would J
require my attendance at n! ht, out.
preferred spending tno time at home 1
attending to my household dunes and

! other ladies belonged, hut they per?
j aisled, and would appoint committee;
! from tho order to wait on me ev rj
, week, urging mo to become a mo ml er
I of tho order. Notwithstanding re
1 poated refusals each time, the com
mittees continued to annoy mo until
two weeks ago when I told them pluln
: ly and emphatically that 1 would not
i under any consideration join tho ordor,
' fr i i whloh I eould never OXpOCt any
(benefit, and furthermore, that if tl
; reports that I board from time to time
wero true, their lodge was not a li or
, suitable plaeo for a lady to attend."
Tho union then appointed a com
\ mittee to wait on tho company and ask
; that Mrs. I'Va iWKn ba discharged, say
ing that an.ot. their request was
granted they would all stop tnolr looms
and walk out and not roturn as long as
sho remained an employe of the com
pany. The company did not dlfiohargo
tier and tho weavers walked out, and
after remaining out three dayn, called
on the carders and spinnors to Join
them These orders woro obeyed, Tho
oompany toll tho strikers that they
would allow them until Friday to re
