the street was not favorable to ron
versation, but why was she bo exces
sively pale? Was it merely the cold
gleuiu of the electric lights? Again
he looked at her, and hesitated; and
then laid bin band gently on her arm.
A childish scream of terror from the
street broke in, followed by deeper
voices and the vague rush of a gath
ering crowd, Mildred Allerton canre
out of her abstraction with a Htart.
44 What was that? What has hap
pened?" she exclaimed.
llayden threw up tho window and
leaned out. The carnage had stopped.
Two or three people were carrying
something to the pavement, something
helpless and inert, like a dead weight.
44 What's the matter?" he asked.
44 You've run over a man," some
body said roughly.
44 It wasn't my fault, sir," put, in the
coachman. 44 The little girl run right
in front of us, an' he after her. We
were on thoui before 1 could pull up."
Miss Allerton gathered her wraps
44 Will you open tbo dooi?" she
said to her companion.
44 My dear Mildred," he protested,
44 I do think that all that is necessary
44 Thanks. I would rather go my

Seeing that sbo was determined, he
unwillingly helped her out. The
crowd tin ned to utarc at her.
44 Whs the little girl hurt, loo?" she
44 No, miss, she ain't, only him. He
puilcd her right out from under the
bosses' hoofs alore, they hit him.
That's him over there with the doctor,
Miss Allerton hesitated, then went
on, llayden following in irritated si
lence. A while (lower fell from her
dress, showing crimson as soon as it
touched the pavement.
44 Come away," said llayden, stop
ping short in angry protest. 44 I re
fuse to countenance this folly."
She paid no attention, hut advanced
toward the two figures under the elec
tric light, one lying motionless, the
other kneeling beside him. As she
looked down into the while upturned
face, her own grew almost as pale and
her clasped hands trembled. But
with a quloK breath bIic regained her
44 1 hope ho is not badly hurt?" she
44 Ho is dying"?tho brusque old
doctor checked himself. Women were
liable to scream or faint. 44 That is,

praising look. 44 Do you know him?"
44 Yes." She came closer. 44 I was
in Hie carriage. And 1 saw ? the
blood"?with a shudder.
44 Only a little cut," hastily inter
posed tho doctor, fearful of her break

of. Nothing rouses him."

bulance that had been summoned,
She laid bei hand softly on the man's
forehead and looked into his wide
open, unseeing eyes. 44 t'arriek!" she
pleaded. 44 oh, Carrlck, don't you
The doctor, watching, gave a slavt.
44 I believe be. does know you," he
said, pointing to a dicker of the rigid
eyelids. 44 Speak to him again."
'4 Mildredl" llayden came hurrying
up, too impatient, to wait longer, At
the sight of the prostrate figure a look
of hatred Hashed from bis eyes.

stupor. If she can rouse him, let her."
llayden scowled, but said no more.
The doctor turned his back and bent
over his patient again.
Thoso fow seconds had wrought a
wonderful change. The strained eyes
bad grown soft as they gazed up at
the girl's faco hovering above him like
a vision out of a cloud of light! The
time was not long past when that face
had meant heaven upon earth to him.
Then it had become a torment, tho
very thought of which was agony.
Now again it symbolized love and hope
and happiness?all the sweet pos
sibilities of life. And now?he was
Tho bitterness of it pierced oven
through his dull apathy. His hps

guess at his meaning. Thon his oyes
44 Youug lady, oxcuse my bluntnoss,"
said the old doctor, 44 but if you have
once been lovora, lit him fancy it is
so still. Speak to him! House him.
It's his one chance."
She leaned ovor him again, her
hands clasping hia closer.
44 You are not dying," she cried,
44 you will live, Carrick, for my sake;
His eyes unclosed again and n quiv
er almost like tbo ghost of a smile
passed over his lipn.
44 Thero'a tho ambulance!" Tho
doctor sprang up with a sharp breath
of relief. Simultaneously appeared a
belated policeman who busied himself
with ordering back the crowd. Tho
doctor turned to Mildred Allerton. In
spite of hi8 familiarity with such crises,
he had been touched by this glimpse
of romance. Perhaps, too, her girlish
grace and beauty had its effect.
441 believe ho hai a chance," ho
said hurriedly, 14 thanks to you. If "
?he hesitated, 44 If I can he of any
use, here is my card."
There was another rattle of wheels,
a shout from the policeman, and thoy
llayden stepped forward. He did
uot intend to make a scene in public,
und only tho hard lines of his mouth
betrayed his inward anger. 44 Miss
* Allerton," he said, ceremoniously,
44 you will he chilled in that thin wrap.
I < t me tako you to the carriage."
She tinned And went back with him
through tho staring crowd. Neither
spoke till the carriage was rein lied.

said coldly, as he helped her in.

her head and looked llaydcn full in

She made no reply. Ho bowed and
walked away, controlling his inward
rage with new plans for tho future.
The coachman gathered up his reins, j
and the horses dashed forward. Tho
few curious loiterers still remaiuiug
turned to watch tho carriage outof sight
and then drifted away. Nothing was loft
of the brief drama which had changed
the course of three lives but a crushed
white liowor with hlood-staiued edges
glimmering under the eluctric light.
At the opera that night two seats
were conspicuously vacant in tho bril

loudest over the diva's groat aria, a
young girl stood by the door of a dim

CAMPAIGNING IN KANSAS.
Rcmittlsceucea of the South
Carolina Expedition in 185U
Col. lMtt a Native of Green
Cap! Georgo W. Moore, of Clinton,
S. C, who was a member of Gouorai
A. C. Jones' company which went to
Kansas Territory from Luurens County
in I860 during the excitement over tho
slavery question, writes the remisceu
cos printed below of those oveuliul
times. A former letter of Capl. Moore
on the muh' topic appeared throe weeks
ago in this paper and today's loiter
continues the narrative. Capl Moore
afterwards served in tho Confederacy
with conspicuous gallantry:
We remained at Camp I'almetto
two or three wecke and then returned
lo Kaueaa City, wberu we took a boat
for Leaveuworlh, Tho boat had on
board i he lirst division of Chicago
settlers, about 76 strong, undor com
mand Of Col. Harvey. As SOOU as
General Jones discovered tills, he called
his men to tho lower deck and told
them to be ready for any emergency.
Things looked squally for awhile, hut
when wo at rived at Leavenworth we
found men on hand to prevent the
landing of these Chicago settlers. Tho
latter made no attempt to laud ut this
point and the Leavenworth meu on tho
lookout boarded the boat aud examined
their baggage. Thoy found a lot of
Sharp lilies and cans of cartridges, the
cartridges being concealed under tea.
Harvey went back down tho river, but
we learned that he afterwards landed
in the. Territory with his men at a
G?iug iutocamp at Leavenworth we
found great oxcilcmout prevailing.
While there we elecicd tho following
additional lieuionants: I'. Y. H.
Jones, lirst und G. W. Moore, second.
After remaining at Leave iworth a few
days, we took up our inarch lo
Delaware City, six miles south on the
Missouri river. Wo wore much pleas
ed with Delaware and concluded to
soldo there, the inhabitants offering
many inducomouts, among thorn free
lots lo i iiiid on. Duriug the month
of August as election time approached
excitement m both parties became in
tense. We learned that General Lane
hud forlilled Lawrence, occupying it
with -1,000 mon nnd our friends on the
border wero organizing a force sulli
cient to c me with him. General Jones
was invited lo attend a meeting held at
riall City and when the day arrived
he look a detachment of his men with
him, the writer being a member of the
I'iult City was twelve miles from
our camp. Tho purposo of the meetiug
was to provido horses and raise supplies
and equipments and lo organize so as
to act in concert with the Missourians
who wore preparing for the campaign.
Col. Pitt, a distinguished Missouriau,
was conducting tho movement. He
was a South Carolinian by birth, hav
iug loft Greenville, S. C, at the ago of
tlvu years. He had boeu a soldier in
tho Mexican war. The arrangements
having been perfected, wo left Platt
City with six horaos and four men.
When we reached a point five miles
from the Missouri river we were in
formed that it was dangerous to pro
ceed further in that direction, as it was
lale. There was a dense swamp five
miles in length to pass through and a
company of Pree S?ders was on the
lookout for us. General Jones asked
if wo would follow him. The answer
was " yes," aud wo set out at a rapid
pace, arriving at the river about dark.
The ferry boat, being a steamer, was
not allowed to run after dark and our
boys in camp, knowing this, had em
ployed some adventurers who ran an
old flat boltomed boat after the re
gular boats had tied up, to meet us and
carry us to the Kansas shore. We
hoarded this frail boat, men and horses,

When wo roached tho maiu currout 1
found that tho water was level with
tho guuwalos of tho boat and that a
little water was pouring in. No alarm
was given aud not a mail spoke or a
horso moved, which uo doubt saved us
from going uudor.
Arriving safely in camp, we commenc
ed preparations to movo, and every
thing being ready in about four days,
we moved out to meol several hundred
other men aud take up the march for
Lecompton- On the tlrst day's march,
after going into camp, we learned that
several hundred men woro advanclug
upon our cump and ouo hundred muu
were called out to moet them, Oonoral
.tonos in command. We soon dis
covered that it was a false alarm. Re
turning, wo lost one man, a Missouriau,
who was accideutly shot. Wo sent his
body back to Delaware for burial, und j
as ho wus a poor mau, a purse of
sevoral dollars was raised for tho fun
eral expenses und the family.
Next day we pushed cm to Lecomp
ton, but arrived at tho rivor too late >
to crobs, as there was only ouo little
boat. Tho people of tho towu were in
a state of great alarm and sent a runner
to our camp all through tho night, say
ing that the town would be attacked
before moruing. licucral Jones be
camo anuoyod by these appeals and
told tho mcsseuger to go back and "Tell
tho pcoplo to tight it they aie attacked."
Next morning wo crossed tho river in
to Lecompton and marched towards
Lawrence, within tlve or six miles of
that towu, where we went iuto camp
agaiu. We seut a spy iuto tho town
to tlnd out tho condition of aff lirs and
iu the uight he reported that we would
be attacked before morning, as they
woro preparing then to advauce on us.
Fortunately, there came up a toriilic
wind and rain alorm, which blew down
our tents and delayed thoir advance.
As we had failed to receive the ex
pected reinforcements, we fell back to
Lecompton. We had not been there
long before our scouts brought the
news that Lane was advancing with a
large body of men. Everything was
excitement and men wore assigned
their positions iu lino of battle. Gen
eral Richardson rode up to General
Jones, and asked him if he would take
tho position in the ravine with his
company. Ho replied: "Mont, assured
ly, sir," aud turning, gave the com
mand: ?? Forward, Laureus Volun
teers I South Carolina never was
whipped, by-" But we had not
been in Hue long und waiting for our I
enemy to get close enough to open the
action, whon we heard the clattering of
horses hoofs iu our rear. Looking
around, wo saw a squad of United
States cavalry coming at full speed,
Thoy dashed up to*us and told us not
lo lire a gun and then moved on to
Lauo's line, stoppiug any furthor ad
vance on his part. Capt. William
Franks, of Laureus, referred to in my
least letter, was a member of this
cavalry squad. Line retraced his steps
to Lawreuco aud we moved back to the
town of Lecoinplon, where wo received
the compliments of our commanders

To know Qoveruor Evans has bean
to appreciate his ine qualities, his
?toiling honssty and his eminent qual
ifications as a statesman and oltlsen.
He curried this county by large major
ities for governor aud sonator, and h*
will carry It this year by a union larg
er majority than over; Indeed, It might
almost bo said that ho will receive the
unanimous democratic vote of the
county, ho great Is tho local Interest m
his candidacy. His personal popular
ity extondlug from Spartauburg Oounly
as a basis. Is radiated all over the
riedmont Bcctlon of the state and ia
evory profession, trade and calling
Qoveruor EvanB is looked upon as a
splendid type of a South Carolinian.
His Strength Is With All Classes.
His friendship and aid have ever
been extended to the large agricul
tural Interwsts of tho state, and our
largo and growing Industrial popula
tion has come to regard him as a
staunch and sincere friend. At the
same time Uovomor Evans has novel
been regarded as hostilo to capital
and corporations In any sonse, and
has many friends and supportors
among those who have large Invest
ments in cotton and other manufactur
ing Industries. While there can hard
ly bo uald to be any loglo In politics,
Governor Evans Is nevertheless the
loglual candidato to succeed MoLaurin,
by reason of the vigorous and won
derfully prophotlo fight be made ou
the commercial statesman five years
ago. Ho then said MoLaurin was a
republican, and that gentleman has
himself since proven the charge be
yond a doubt. Governor Evans was
not tho only prophet In that Hue. how
ever, hut he was the only man who
made a fight on MoLaurin thou who Is
now a candidate before the people as
his successor. Ho evidently knows
a republican when he sees one, and
thla la nome assurance, if any were
needed, that his own floinooraoy is
Has Been Faithful to Evory Trust.
Govornor Evans' oqulpment and
Qualifications for the senatorshtp are
undoubted, and his services to the peo
ple of tho state eortainly give him a
I claim upon their earnest consideration
of his candidacy. He has ever been
faithful to the trust reposed In him by
the democrats of South Carolina, and
retains to the utmost the respeot and
confidence of those who know hltn.
The very fact that he has held the
support of those who were bis political
associates in times when there were
sharp lines drawn betwoen the faction
al affiliations of our poople and has
since the effacement of those lines
drawn to himself the good will ana
friendship of those who formerly op
posed him, shows him to be a man
who Is steadfast in character and emi
nent In ability. He Is strongest where
he Is best known, and Is backed by
the support of the thickly populated
Piedmont countlcB and ho is sure to
be a formidable factor in the race.

1 have found none superior to that of White Stone Springs. i

yours is superior to the majority which claim great merit. If
any person is in need oI a very Healthful water be would be
very wise it he would purchase that only from the v> lute Stone

Uentlemen: After a work of 2*'> years, 1 do not believe there
exists a water that may be serviceable in all Ailments, but t do
say that white Stone Litliia Water has many romedial agents
which will cover the widest possible number'of diseases that
mav arise from kidney or uric acid causes, stomach or bowel
catarrh?which produces all the forms of indigestion. The so
dreaded catarrh of the hoa.l and throat will be in many cases
helped by these sulphates, but it is in treatment of dropsical
conditions that I nave found this water more benelicial than
any other water I have ever used. 1 would unhesitatingly rec
ommend White Stone bithia Water to my bes* practice for kid
uey. stomach, bladder and all forms of dropsical troubles.

Uentlemen: I have tested (lie virtue of White Btone Lithia
Water, and I now most earnestly commend it 10 any one trou
bled with any kidney disease. It has done more for me than
any water I nave ever tried.
bor years I have sulfered at times with the passage of Uric
Acid calculi, and have tried a number of celebrated mineral
waters amongthem ButTalo Lithia Water, l'ate. i'apou Springs,
and Waukesha Belhesda, having spent two mouths each sum
mer for eight successive cummers.
While i was somewhat benctitted, I can safely slate that I
lind no comparison in the action of While Stone Lithia Wator,
for in it i find th*t they act powerfully on my kidneys, clearing
up the urine and In thoroughly washing tliom out. when I drink
White Stone Lithia Water in Hultli ieni quantities. If what I
learned from my doctors is true ab.nit Hooding the kidnevs
then i can see no reason why I should suflfar any more with
Uric Acid calculi or the fearful attacks of renal colic. Am long
as 1 can got it, will try no other water but While Stone Lithia.
