BII,I, ARP 18 AT HOME AGAIN. 1
/HAI) TROUBLE GKTTINU TU KHK
The Kall road CJate* Were lllockcd
and Ho Took I'akMnge on Another
Home again and happy. Children
and grandchildren mot mo at tho de
pot and escorted mo home, whoro a
bountiful supper was awaiting, and i
asked tho same old blowing that 1 havo
boon asking for fifty years, only It was
with unusual gratitude, for 1 hud boon
in peril < of wind and water and escaped
them. 1 was wuary with long travol,
and now I could rest. 1 left New Al
bany at midnight, reached Birming
ham at daylight, only (Ivo minutes late,
and had live minutes' time to buy a
ticket for Pell City, and from thoro 1
wau to board tho Kast and West for
homo. How happy I was. Hut alas !
for human hopes. I low soon they can
vanish Into ucspuir. Thoro woro about
a hundred big, blues:, greasy negro
proachors ahead of mo at tho ticket
oMoc. Their Haptist convention had
boon broken up, and thoy woro going
homo on the southbound train, ami had
an hour to go on, but they would not
lot mo advance an Inch. I hurried
back to tho gutokuepor and bogged
him to lot mo In, for my train was wait
ing, and 1 pointed to tho crowd of ne
groes and told him it was impossible
for mo to got a ticket. He said ho was
B?rry, but ho had his orders. I hurried
back to make ono more effort, but a
big tquuro shouldered preacher, with
a back as broad as u barn door, had
dropped a dime on tho Hour and half a
dozen woro down hunting for lt. 1
hailed tho ticket man, but ho novor
hoard or hoodod ino. Frantic, I rushed
back to tho iron gates, und saw ray
train slipping off like u snako In tho
grass, and thut oHlolal automation
would not lot mo pass. " 'Calnst or
ders," ho said.
Blackatono sayB there is a remedy
for ovory wrong, but thoro were no
railroads In his day, or ho wouldn't
havo written those linos. I had no
roraody, and there la none. What could
I do V No train for Poll City for twelve
hours, and nono from Pell City for my
homo for twenty-four hours. 1 was so
tlrod and so disappointed that I sat
down to ruminate on my vallso. I was
weak and sad and pitiful, (or there Is
no disappointment so distressing to mo
as being loft by a train when going
homo. Just then a drummer, God
bless him ! came up and spoke to mo,
unu Bald, "My friend, 1 am pretty
much in the sumo tlx you aro, but wo
can go by Chattanooga, for tho Ala
bama Groat Southern la an hour late
this morning. It's schedule Is to loavo
hero thirty minutes boforo wo arrived,
but It has not como yot, and wo havo
half uu hour to get our tickets. Those
preachors aro nourly all out of tho wuy
I roao to my foot. I saw how It was,
and that I would loso only one hour in
getting home. Iii my huurt I revived,
and like David whUpored, *' Bless tho
Lord, O my soul." We got our tickets,
and In four hours woro In Chattanooga,
where I telegraphed my wife, " liold
tho fort; I'm comlnir." And so " All's
well thut ends well," und no thunks to
those who mnnugo thut Iron-hound pen
But I found tho cutost little narrow
gaugo ruilroud in Mississlpi thut 1
have soon In many years. I didn't
know there wus ono loft. It is cullod
tho (iulf und Chicago railroad, hut
thoy began to build it in tho raiddlo
many years ugo und built sixty mileB
and quit. You can ride ull duy on It
for $1 00. It doesn't seem to huvo uny
schedule, and tho folks along tho lino
just wait for It und seem content. Thoy
suy, " Well, It's our roud : It ull we've
got, and thoy do tho best they can."
Tho owners uro clovor men und will
wult on you hulf ud hour if you tclo
phono them. Thoy are very accommo
dating, especially going South, for
thoy huvo no connections to raako. I
boarded that train ut Bluo Mountuin
at 1 p. m. for l'ontotoc, whoro I was to
locturo that night ut 7:H0 o'clock, it
was only thirty miles, but wo didn't
got there until 8.15 o'clock, und my audi
onco didn't gl vo up tho ship. They salu
It was their road?tholr only roud?and
thoy know its peculiar way-*.
Wo stopped when within throo miles
of town, and after hulf an hour or so 1
asked what wus tho rauttor, und wus
told that tho stoum had given out.
Beforo that tho train stopped in tho
woods somewhere and then began to
back. I ventured to ask what was tho
muttor and wus teld that tho brake
man had dropped his cob pipe and
thoy had gone back to look for It. But
It was a railroad and I had no right to
complain, for 1 romombor when thora
wus not u ruilroud in tho United States.
Whon I wus seven yours old I camo
from Boston to Georgia overland in u
curriago with my father and mother,
1,200 miles, und wo novor crossed e.
ruilroud, for thoro wus not ono to cross;
und now thero uro l'.lo.OOO mllcB In
thcBO United States.
No, 1 am happy on tho way on any
railroad, ovon if it Is thirty miles short
and four hours long. It boats tho old
stago coach u long ways. I tried a
huggy team from Kiploy to Bluo Mount,
only u six mile drlvo und like to havo
got drowned. I got fundamentally and
distressing Iy wet. 1 shall wult for tho
narrow guugo next tlmo. Oh, thut
cyclone. I haven't quit tolling about
It yet. Next morning a man who was
In It und undor It und on top of it suld
ho went out to shut his mules up in
tho stuolo, and boforo ho could say
Jack Uoblnson, It plckod him up and
turned him u thousand somorsaults,
and while ho was turning he hoard his
mules a braying In tho air abovo blm.
" (h-nt leinen," said he, "that are. a
faot, if I ovor told it; and tho thing
just lot mo down in Jinny Jonos's pota
to patch as oasy as u womun lays hor
baby In tho eradle."
That college at Bluo Mountain Is a
marvel to mo. It was foundod twenty
flvo yours ugo by Gonoral Lowroy, u
great big-huurtod mun, who, like Bon
Adbom, loved his follow men. It wus
at first a high school for tho bom lit of
tho poor girls In tho neighborhood und
expanded into u college. Whon he
Med his sons and sons in law took
hargo and contlnuod to expand, and
ow thoro aro iH)0 girls thoro ; over 200
o fthom aro boarders ut $12 per month.
The othors llvo In cottages near by and
board thomsolvos at u cost of about $5
a month, for thoy do tholr own work.
Largo handsomo brick buildings havo
been built and more uro bolng built
Bountiful springs from tho mountain
side furnish ubundunt pure water for
everything. Thoro 19 a dairy farm
near by '.nd vegetable gardens, und
evorytLing movos liko clockwork.
Professor Lowroy is a man of untir
ing onorgy und 6ays that work 1b his
host recreation. He. took mo on a ro
mantic drlvo to tho top of the moun
tain and the, village graveyard, and
whon wo returned ho called for his
four llttlo children, Including the baby,
and took them to rldo. I liked that. It
doos not tako mo long to dlagiioso a
good husbaod and kind father. Thoro
was no barbor in tho vlllago and ho
brought to rao his flno lawn mowor
razor that cost $5, and when ho saw
how awkward and norvous I was, ho
said, "Oh, let mo do that," and ho
mowod tho gray stubblo off in a mlnuto.
Ever hoar of a collogo preaidoi.t doing
I was specially interested In a y >ung
man, Ernest Guyton, tho only ><>y In
college. Ho Is totally blind, tut is
getting a Urst-class education through
Is ears. Ho listens eagerly to tho
recitations, koepsup with the foremost
and is now studying Latin. Illsmothor
or sister reads to him every night and
the family aro all proud of him, for he
is not only bright mentally, but cheer
ful and handsome. He told mo that
being blind never distressed him and
he was happy all the time, for every
body was so good to him. IIow kind
Providence Is to the sffltoted.
Those Mississippi woods are full of
Georgians. Scores of them sought me
and with a natural and earnest prldo .
tuld mo whoro thoy camo from In tbo |
long ago, or wheru tboir fathers oamo i
from and who tlioy wore kin to. 1 waa
amused at one old man who raid he

the name of old < ? was changed to

An unknown friend has sont me a
poetic gem called "The Chango In
Farmer Joo," by Sboldon Stoddard. 1
wlah that It could be read by ovcry
husband in the land, for it tolla In
ooauttful ver-o how Joo had long pur
sued money for money's eako and gavo
bis loving, long suffering s7lfo fuw com
forta and none of the luxuries or orna
ments ttiat brighten upa womans home.
For yeara ehe had from titno to time
hinted that she would like a new ear
i pet for her room, for the old ono had
been turned and patched and beaten
until it was faded and threadbare, and
the window Bhados wero worn out. Hut
ho Bald no, he couldn't afford lt; and ho
worked early and late and wa8accumu
lating money. Tho poem tolls how ho
loft her ono morning and noticed a tear
In her oyo as it dropped down on bur
pale cheek, and bo got to thinking
about It In tho cornfield, and that tear
haunted him and bo recalled the long
years of tholr married lifo and bow
patient she bad been with him ami tbo
little children and nursed him when
sick and watched them by night and by
day. Suddonly he came tobimself and
stopped his mule. In tho middle, of tho
row and hurried homo and hltohod up
tho buggy and went tu town like ho
wan going for the doctor. He bought
a nice carpet and sumo curtains and
ether comforts and drovo home llko
Johu and tumbled them all at the frout
door. " Hero, Sally, come hero, bloss
your dear heart : you shan't cry any
more." And ho nurrled back to the
cornfield. Well, I liked that, and I
fool now like going to townaud buying
a now carpet for my wife. Wo men
forget that a woman has to stay at
homo all the time. She loves orna
ments, for God mado her so, and If
9ho can't have those things her bouse
is not a home, but a prison.

Mrs. Mary B. Plokrell died at 3
o'clock on Friday afternoon at the
homo of her daughter, Mrs. Kate
Norrie, at Broyles, In this county. She
was the widow of tho lato Jonathan
Plokrell, Esq.. who died five years ago
at the age of 97, and herself lacked till
tho 10th ol February of completing
her ninety-fourth year. She had been
sick hut a short time and her doath was
duo solely to tho Intlrmltlos of extreme
ago. She suffered but little and passed
away without a groan or a strugglo.
Notwithstanding tho great weight of
years her strength of mind and body
was remarkably well preserved, and
tho liro of her religious experience
burned brightly to tho end. Only a
fow days boforo nor death sho caught
tho hand of her daughter who was
ministering to hor and pressing It
warmly exclaimed with rapture, " as
seoing Him who Is invlaiblo," " Glory
bo to God ; praise Hie holy namo !"
Sho had boon a member of tho Metho
dist church aovonty-tivo yoara, pro
bably longer, and during that long
tlmo?a much longer time than is al
lowed most people to serve in tho
church militant?Bho was uniformly
loyal to tho church of hor fathers, con
stantly exemplifying tho soundness
and saving power " o'on down to old
ago" of tho religion of tho Lord Jesua
Mrs. Plokrell was born on Nantuckot
Island, ofT tho coast of Massachusetts,
and was a daughtor of Abraham Coffin,
also a native of Nantuckot, and one of
tho first porsons of tho leland to em
brace Methodism when tho old religion
with a new and consuming z-al swept
the dead occleslaBtlciam of New Eng
land aa a pralrlo tiro. Her mother's
father, William Bunker, a Baptist,
was caught by tho tido of Methodism,
as hor father's peop'o, who woro Pres
byterians, had boon, and ho gavo tho
land upon which the first Methodist
church on Nantucket was built.
When she was ten yoara of ago she
heard tho celebrated evangelist, Lo
renzo Dow, preach in Providence,
Rhode Island, whore her fathor was
living at the tlmo, and to hor dying
day she kopt fresh in mind her Impres
sions of tho man and his manner. The
preachor was unwell and after the
aervlco In tho court house?there was
then no Molhodiat church In tho city?
decided to re6t there till tho evening
appointment. During tho Interval a
lady, sympathizing with tho evange
list in his indisposition, brought him
somo refreshments and subsequently
beeamo his wife.
During tho year 1811) Mr. Cotlln, Mrs.
Plckrell'a father, a man posaossod of a
wide rango of practical knowledge
decided, in view of tho widespread
businea8 gloom that hung ovor tho
Eastern States aa a result of tho war of
1812, to remove to South Carolina. His
resolution to come South was largely
determined by tho Insistence of his
friend, Philip Weavor, who had al
ready come to South Carolina and
established a little cotton mill in dpar
Accordingly^ Mr. Coffin sailed with
his family from Providence that year
and reached Charleston after a stormy
voyago of throo weeks. They wore
mot In Charloaton by Mr. Weavor'a
wagons and convoyed to tho little mill
up In Spartanburg, and thus Mrs.
Pickroll became an operatlvo In the
11 rat cotton mill established In South
A few yoara lator Mr. Coffin removed
toa similar mill on Roody River, a fow
miles bolow Greonvlllo, and from there
ho went about tho year 182? to tho
Fork section of this county to tako a
half lntoreat In a 8mall yarn mill which
tho Rev. Lovl Garrison, father of the
lato Honry Garrison of this county,
had oatabllshed on Little Hoavordam
croik one-fourth of a mllo bolow what
Is now known as Broylos Mill.
It was hero that Mrs. Pickroll waa
married January 15, 1828, the Rev. Mr.
Garrison porformlng tho coromony.
Sho waa tho mother of thirteen child
ren, ton of whom grow to maturity.
One of her sons, a promising- young
man, was killod in battlo at Lookout
Mountain, Tennessee, as a mombor of
tho Second South Carolina l Mien dur
ing tho civil war. Four of hor child
ren, Mra. Kate Nnrrls and Mra. Edrew
Cromor of the Fork; Mra. John C.
Gantt, of Hartwell, Georgia ; and Mr.
William B. Plokrell, of Texas, survive
her. Tho Rev. Honry Baseom Browno,
a prominent member of the South
Carolina Conforonco, and Dr. Walker

Mr. N. C. Gonzales, tbo editor of Tho

management und policy of tho cotton

some of tho largest mills, whoro every
facility was givon him to form a just
conclusion und obtain a fuir Insight us
to tho prohloin of child lubor und as to
tho facilities for educating the child

tho situation is us follows :
In this Stato thoro uro not lacking
cotton manufacturers of broad views
and progressive solrlt who real!/, j that
the time has come for tho regulation
by luw of the lubor of minors und tho
prohibition of child lubor In our mills.
They not only porcoivu thut tho issue
presented must bo solved but they aro
willing to contribute to tho solution of
it and they rouli/.o tho fuct that great

Last week tho editor of Tho Stato re
turned from a visit to tho Creonvillo und
Anderson mill districts where ho wus
given the opportunity to soo what hud
been dono for the betterment of con
ditions In tho mill villages and tho
education uf tho chlldreu and to learn
taut whotovor might be the ubusoB
olsowhoro thoro was at least one group
of cotton mills In South Carolina whero
the duty of employers to tbo employed
und the responsibilities resting upon
manufucturors for tho futuro of tho
children of tho factories wero fuil"
It is not possible to go into grout
dotull in an urticlo like this, but It can
bo said that tho rovolutlon of lntcrost
In tho ohlldret on tho part of theso
manufacturer.t was gratifying.
At tho Piedmont mills, a community
of somo :i.0UU pjjpio, tho property of I
which Is owned und controlled uOso
lutelv by tho manufucturing company,
Col. James L. Orr, tho president, ox
I hlbited with justiliablo prldo tho two
graded schools established und main
tained by tho corporation for tho chil
dren of tho operatives. Tho pruotlcul
every duy work for tho schools us soon
showed thut tho children woro woll
tuught as woll us woll housed und thut
tho uttondunco uo to tho 12 year olds
was large. Col. Orr said that It was
his earno t endeavor to koop children
under 12 out of tho mills, but that his
efforts had not boon fully successful by
reason of misrepresentations us to ago
made by tho parents of somo children.
In the mill- fow Celldrou who seemed
to be under ago woro encountered. Tho
Piedmont company muintalns for Its
mill operatives u free circulutlng lib
rary contuloing thousands of volumes
of wholesome roudlng mutter, vurylng
from tho Instructive to tho ontortalu
ing, which Is frooly patronlzod by tho
help, who uro oncouruged to tako books
to tholr homes aud uro permitted to
keep them thore u fortnight at a timo.
Tho registration at this llbrury shows
un uvorugo of 8,000 volumes read an
nually. Of tho ample church facilities;
of Piedmont It is not nocoBsury to spcuk.
Tho proporty of tho Polzor Manufac
turing company constitutes u veritable
principality. Tho completeness of tho
town of Pelzor, ovory ucro und build
ing of which is owned by tho corpora
tlon, has been written of so ofton of
lato that evory newspaper reader in
South Carolina must know what u
uniquo und romarkublo placo it is.
There are over 0,000 people at Pelzor,
and Capt. Ktlison A. Smyth, tho presi
dent of tho great corporation with Its
four mills and 120,000 spindles, is per
haps tho best exponent this sldo tho
island of Guam of a "benevolent des
potism. " Iiis greut IntoroBt In tho wol
furo of tho community over which ho
presides und bis minute attention to
its needs must lmpresB ovory one who
makes tho rounds of tho Institutions of
Polzor. There Is * lino now graded
school building, soadous and admir
able arranged, u iyctum, opon ull the
week, with its roudli.g room, game
room and facilities for wholesome
social iutorcourso, u kindergarten and
sovoral churches which would bo cred

Smyth fully recognizes tho Importance
of educating tho children of tho mill
communities and of prohibiting their
employment In tho fuctorlos until thoy
huvo ucquirod the bases of a good com
mon school education is shown by tho
following form of contract which ho
requires to huvo signed by tho heads
of ull families taking employment with
tho company und occupying Its dwell

to this agreement:

A similar agreement Is required of
I all employes of tho Bolton mills, of
which Capt. Smyth is also the prcsl- I
dent?tho only dllTerenco being that
the children are rtqulred to attend the
" public school at Helton," which is
said to bo a graded and excellent ono.
Capt. Smyth's progrosslvoness In
these matters Is emulated by Mr.
L'swla W. Parker, president of the
Victor cotton mill at Creers and tho
now Monaghan mill just built in the
suburbs of Groeovlllo. This latter mill
Is one of the tinest in tho Slate, but Is
not yet In operation. Its village and
surroundings aro laid out,with excel
lent taste and already form an attrac
tive picture A lino school building is
about to bo erected on tho properly.
At Qreere Mr. Parker's company has
built for the mill operatives a graded
school building which would be an or
uament to any town. It la handsome
and tasteful within and without, and
ia equipped with apodal features em
bodying tho most advanced Ideas. A
well appointed kindergarten la con
ducted In connection with tho school,
a pretty church la attached to It, and
there la a lurgo hall ovurhoad which
will bo uaed for freo locturea of an In
structive naturo for tho benctlt of the
operatives?a feature, by the way,
which haa been provided for at Pol/.ar
A number of other mills wero soon,
but these wero tho most advanced Id
the mattors hero under consideration.
At the Anderson cotton mill President
Brock took apeclal prido in tho quality
and appearance of hia oporativea,
which wore Indeed exceptionally good.
Tho ages of children soon at work
varied in tho ditferent mills : some
managers wore by no means as caroful
aa other* in excluding tho amull ones
and in supplying them with ample
educational facilities?but everywhere
there waa recognition of tho fact that
tho labor of tender children in the
milla waa an evil to bo deprecated and
remedied and that a moral obligation
lay upon mill owners to provide facili
ties fo ? their education and If possible
to onforco the use of these facilities.
Wo have reason to boliovo that when
tho Legislature ahall meet it will bo
found that progressive manufacturers
will meet half-way those who are unx
ious to abolish child?or rather, infant
?labor In tho eotton mills and to com
pel the atteirlance of mill children on
tho public schools. In truth, it ia no
less for their Interest than that of the
operatives themselves that there, shall
ho a law on this aubj ;ct; for tho hu
mane and public aplritod munufac. :?*or
who carrleaout at considerable costhi?
plans for the betterment of mill condi
tions is now at a dlsadvantugo compar
ed with those who neglect auch provla
iona. What old mllla and now mills In
tho Greenville district can do of their
own volition, believing that It ia right
and expedient to do, old mills and new
milla olsuwhoro can fairly bo required
to do. We aro convinced that somo
compulsion of law ahould bo put upon
oporativea to send their little child
ren to tho schools provided for tbora.
Many of these children aro from the
mountain districts of this and other
States, where educational facilities
have been lacking, and they do not
real'zo as the majority do tho valuo of
this instruction to their children.
It ia beat for all Interested that tho
State ahould establish aa nearly as It
can somo uniformity of obligation and
of opportunity, ao that thoao who aro
unworthy ahall not protit to tho detri
ment of tho worthy. Lot tho question
bo considered without prejudice or
heat, and tho bO'ution, wo are sure,
will bo to tho permanent advantage of
As She Described It.?It was tho
first day of school. Tho bell had tap
ped and tho little children of tho sec
ondary primary wore sitting upright
in their seats, hands proporly folded
and with round oyos fixed on tho now

Sho was a bit nervous. It waa her
lirut school. Tho children mado her

and watched her so narrowly.
She bogan to fool llko a mouse that

Thon hor face brlghtonod. Sho would
find out what tho children already

touching on divorae aubj-jcta.
''Now, who knows what a ako'.oton

The Attempt Made to Hcatroy (imnl'h

A few tiny-, ago a porton who had
liei u reading an account of an expert- j
mint trip of Count Z ?ppellD's air ship
remarked that in u few more years |
peoplo will travel in air instead of on
the solid earth. Iron and stool rails
will lose their value because railroads !
will go out of use. The now modo of
travel will bo more pleasant, for there !
will bo no dust and. by rising hlghor, |
as necessity may require, the happy
traveller may keep cool.
Travelling in the air by moans of ,
balloons is not of vory remote date.
The tlrst successful t xi)<jrlmeats in
this lino were inu?o in France about

but thoru is ono experiment that seems
to bavo escaped tho notice of tho cu

sj far as tho writer knows.
In tho winter of 1804 (if, Gen. Kjbert j
H. Loo and his army were defending
Petoreburg, Virginia. Tho troops
wero stretched out aloog tho 'Ines
perhaps at tho rato of odo to every ono
hundred yards, nations wero scarce
and clothing scant, and there wero
many other discomforts, hut tho spirit
of the veterans wero superior to all of
theso depressing circumstauces and
they were abio to oujoy a good thing.
MeCowan's brigade held tho works
not far from Battory l") (or the Star
Fort) and near where the great dum
was ouilt. One cold, raw day tho brl
gado was culled out, without arms, to
hour u speech from a sclontilic person
ago who wus Introduced us "Profs"
j Blunk. Tho old toldiors crowded
i uround und took their seuts on the
cold ground, und he unfulde.1 his scheme
for demoralizing und driving uwuy
Cruut's army, lie had just Invented
an air ship.
In shape It wus something' liko a
bird und for that rouson he hud called
ll " Artls Avis," or "Tho Bird of Art,''
which wus the. meaning of the two
Latin words. Tho frame was made of
hoop Iron und wire, it wus covered
with whito oak spiIts. It wus to he
run by u l-horso powor onglno and one
man to ouch bird would Do sulllclent.
Too onglno was to bo In the body of
tho bird and to furnlsu power for koop
lng tho wings In motion. A stnull door
ut tho shouldor wus oponed or closed
to control tho direction of tho Bird of
Art. A door under tho throut wus
openod whon It wus doslrublo to do
scond and u door on top of tho nock
whon tho operator wished to go higher.
Thoro was machinery bv whicn tho
tail could ho spread out or closed. In
tho body of tho bird thoro was room
for a number of shells UDd the opera
tor by touching u spring with hiu foot
could drop thorn upon tho enemy from
u safo distunco.
Tho "Professor" said that ho had
completed one bird and made a test of
its spood, und how it would work, lie
tied it to u Hat car, which was coupled
to u fast engine. It wus uttached to
the Hut car with u long, strong rope.
Tho word wus given und tho railroad
engine started off ul grout spued. Tho
" Bird of Art" did tlio same und had
no trouble In keeping up with tho iron
horso without pulling on tho rope.
Tho "Professor'' concluded his re
mark* by saying ho needed a little
more money to make birds enough to
destroy t; rant's army, and asked tho
old soldiers to contribute one dollar
each to tho cause. Many of them did
and tho Professor moved on and dis

THE PATENT RECORD. Baltimore, Md.
about im: in mm; THE TRUTH.
A Newspaper With a Proper Iterant
tor tho Limits of Reflect Able
Spnrtauhurg Evening Journal.
A demand is sometimes nude for
newspapers that tell tho truth, Somo
people roier slightingly to tho contents
of newspapers as hoing of suspicious
character so far as Its veracity is con
corned, and say that newspapers
should stick closely to facts and tell
the truth, tho whole truth and nothing
but the truth.
It does not ulwuys suit to toll tho
j truth. Tho truth is sometimes better
left untold. The same people who
I complain because tho newspapers do
I not tell tho truth also criticise the
newspapers for hoing too sensational
If tho newspapers should print what
they know, there would be somo sensa
tions Indeed. Ttioy would state sumo
times that "Colonel Mlunk, ono of our
prominent clti/jns, is ill at his homo
with the jira jams," when Instead they
very kindly say ho is indisposed, or
I unwell. They might also chronicle
that "Miss Bailie Smithers, tho home
liest and eouriest tempered woman we
have over seen, has ut last managed to
got marrlod," when they considerately
describe her as beautiful and amiable
and as the belle of the town.
If they wanted to tell tho truth they
could say that the ftev. Long Wind,
who preached an hour and a halt,
"bored his congregation nearly to
death," when instead thoy describe his
sermon as a magnificent and powerful
discourse, which deeply moved his
hearortj and held their rapt attention.
Wueu a husband or wlfa dies they
might sometimes say that a "cat and
dog existence has terminated," but tho
lifo of tho couple Is described as one
long, swoot dream.
Then ugaiu there aro many domestic
scandals that como to the ears of the
newspapers, and many personal dilll
culties, and many rumors ailocting the
Integrity of various citi/.ons that are
probably truo that never find theii
way into print because it will not du
always to toll the truth. Serious hap
penings aro sometimes minimized anu
unimportant events magnified when
tho newspapers know perfectly well
their news value, but they cannot al
ways tell the truth. It Is not tho truth
that is wanted. The nowspapers some
times cannot atTord to tell tho truth
and tho people concerned cannot alToru
to have It told about them, and the
truth is, therefore, omitted. Some
politicians say the newspapers will noi
tell the truth about them. 1'or thlc
thoy ought to ho profoundly thankful,
for if tho truth were told about them,
somo of them would lind thoir political
careers at ?an end and reputa.'onu
And all this consideration and sup
pression of truth when It is damaging,
is rarely appreciated and tho cry is for
newspapers that will toll the truth
It would take but ono issue of such u
newspaper to raise the cry louder than
before to handle tho truth cautiously
and In smull quantities and well glossed
over. Knockdown and drag out lights
damage suits, broken uoses, heart:
and fortunes would be tho features ol
tho day, and tho truthful newspaper
would bo suppresses , If it took u con
stltutional convention to accomplish
It. Tho newspapers mako their living
by printing what their readers waul
to road and that is not always the

A shocking tragedy took place on the
5th lost, at Williamson, a town in

also dangerously Injured.
Mr. Stokes, ono of tho most prom

greeting friends on tho way, walked
with quick and lirm step in the
direction of the houso occupied by

Mrs. Levino, Mr. Wohl's family being
in Kentucky. Mr. Stokes stopped al
tho gate to talk with Mrs. Levino, who
stood in the doorway. Within a few
minutes tho mlnlstor camo out of the
houso. He soomod to bo groatly excl
tod about something, und said to Mrs.
Levino as he paascd her at the door:
"You would bo much better at present
in the house."
Sho laughingly replied that tho day
wan far too pretty to bo spent ontiroly
wltnln doois, and Mr. Stokes inter
rupted by remarking: "Yob, don't
think of leaving us for tho house."
Qjluk as a Hash Mr. Wohl turned,
aim addressing Stokes, said: "Leave
the premises." An altercation followed.
Doth men ran to tho sidewalk directly
in front of the house. Something was
said, almott Indistinguishable that
dre?w from Mr. Wohl a sharp retort.
"You aro a liar," and in an Instant
tho report of a revolver was hoard.
Stok-.'S stumbled, tried to regain bis

as ho was, ho drow his revolver and
covered tho minister, now within ton

tired, and simultaneously with that
shot tt o gun in tho sinking hand ol
Stokes spoke. When tho emoku bud
cleared away two men lay in thoir own
blood upon tho sidewalk. \ crowd ran
to tho scene. Mr. Wohl was dead.
Cnanco had car.ded the bullet from
Stokes' pistil! through the head of the
mlnlstor, killing him as lie fell. The
bullet had ontored Stokes' sido bolow
tho heart and passed entirely through
In tho hall of tho minister's homo,
feeing tho fearful duel to the death,
fallen across tho doorway, was found

sho was doad, and had probably been
shot, hut an Investigation shuwod that
sho had only fainted from fright.
Up to a lato hour that ovonlng Mr.
Stokes refused to say anything con
corning tho torrlblo tragedy, and Mrs
Lovino was in too much of a stato of ex

Mr. Wohl was recognized as ono of
