HOT FROM THE FRONT.
> Newsgotherlng, not fighting, Is the
trade of the war correspondent. . But
It Is news nt any personal cost, and a
fine unpremeditated heroism often goes
with the gathering of it.
One morning after the siege of Paris,
tarnen the city woe believed. In London
to be still in the hands of the com
mune, Sir John Itobmson, manager of
tho Daily News of London, reached
his office to find the late Archibald
Forbes lying on tho floor asleep, bis
head on a postofflco directory, while
the printero were bard at work on bis
manuscript, the story of "Paris In
Flames," a most vivid description *>f
the last days of the common?.
"Forbes bad telegraphed from Dover
announcing bis coming," said Sir' John
Robinson, "the printers bad been walk
ing, nnd thus the country heard of
those terrible days for the first time.
t "London was ablaze with excite
ment. Bouverlc street was Impassable
through the newsboys Bhrleking 4br
copies, and in parliament Mr. Glad
stone was questioned that afternoon
nnd could only say be hoped the story
"When Forbes wakened from bis
slumber amid all this turmoil, wbat a
erpeetacle be was! His face was black
with powder, his eyes rod and In
flamed, his clothes matted with clay
and dust; be was a dreadful picture,
ne had been compelled to assist the
communists in defending n trlnrtgulnr
space upon which three detachments
of tbo Versailles troops were firing,
and bad actually taught the citizens
how to build a bnrrlcado."
By aid of dummy dlspatchofrad
dressed to Lord (Jranvlllo aba tho
queen, Forbes escaped from this
threatening triangle and wrote all tbo
way to England, being tho solitary
pnssenger on tbe mnllboat. ? Youth's

A philanthropic lady visited tho asy

"And how long have you been here,
my man?" she Inquired.
"Twelve years," was the answer.
"Do they treat you well?"
"Do they feed you well?""
After addressing a few more ques
tions to blm tho visitor passed on. She
noticed a broad and broadening smile
on the face of her attendant and on
asking the cnuso beard with conster
nation that the old man was nono oth

HOW A YOUNG LAURENS DOCTOR
"EVENED THINGS" WITH AN ELDER.
How an Old Practitioner Couldn't
Mend a Broken Leg Because He
Was No Blacksmith.
The following comical experience ia
sent to Tu a Advertiser by a gentle
man who is not only a first rate physi
cian and surgeon but who knows how
to write a good story woll. It will be
read with keen interest and Tub Ad
vbrtisrr hopes that it is cot tho lnet
that will come from tho ssme pen.
Editor, T te Advertiseb:
Being . jrv. >d to remain in doors to
day from the cold, damp, cloudy weath
er, 1 read and re-read the best of
county papers ?The Advertiser.
You are certainly giving us a bright,
newsy and interesting paper,?well
worth the money and more than you
charge for it and I suppose Laurens
people like myBelf are paid up subscrib
ers to it and are made happy onoe a
week when they receive their copy.
Well, after reading tho paper and
feelings the comforts of a good hickory
wood fire I fell into aremlnisccnt mood.
I was born nearly 00 years ago and all
my life?except the four years I was in
the army, and Fort Doloware as a pri
soner of war, has been spent in the dear
old county, my "native heath" and I
shall have it understood that when the
Doath Angel comes for me my body
must be burled in her clay. My lifo
ha9 been full of "ups" and "downs"?
mostly "downs"?have had however, a
measure of prosperity, but at all times
have found it pretty hard to keep the
"wolf from the door."
But wilhal I have lived a fairly hon
est life and am proud to beliovo in my
old age I oan claim many warm friends
wbo.no doubt.wlll "heave a sigh" when
they hear Doctor J. is no more. In 1867
I began my professional oareer as n
Country Dootor,?having graduated in
March that year from tho South Caro
lina Medioal College, Charleston, not at
the foot of my class but cortalnly not
at the top. Leaving College I "hung
out my shingle" at the homo of my
birth forgetting the Bible injunction:
"A prophet is not without honor save
in his own country" and boldly and I
fear somewhat conceitedly, asked tho
people for their support.
Doctor-was my competitor,
who, up to my graduation had been
my friend, but no sooner had he seen
my determination to locate In his ter
ritory that he began to give mo the
"cold shoulder" and I could hoar of
his not speaking very complimentary
of the young doctor. He, however, did
not come out openly agaUwt me, but by
the judicious use of his "buts" and
"lf?" he boped to move me to otbor
putt-. I hold on simply bcoause I
could dp no better, as I had not a penny
in my pocket, nor could I borro.v tho
"useful" from any one. I forgot to tell
you Dr.-was a leading man in the
community and a deacon in tho Bap
tist Church,?very loyal and attentive
to all the meetings of his Church. Nov
it fco happened that during a protracted
meetirg at the Dootor'a Church, I Was
in attendance one night during the serr
vice. When the service was about harr
over I was notified that Mr. H. wished
me to come at once to see bis sick child.
Leaving the church as quietly as I
could, I soon got my horse, and upon
mounting him, he (the horse) became
frlghteced at something and ran be
tween two trees toleiably close to
gether, and, as my right leg was a peg
leg, (having lost it during the war), I
could not bond it so as to safely pass
the tree. It was broken and I was
thrown from tho horse. Scmo boys
near, seeing the accident, came up to
me and asked If 1 was hurt. Feeling
all at once that the time bad oome for
me to square cccounts with Dr.-,
I answered "yes, my leg was broken,"
and "to please go in the church and ask
Dr.-to come to me at once*" In
The Doctor soon reached me, and upon
taking hold of my arm to feel my pulse
he asked If I was badly hurt? 1 told
him my right leg was seriously broken,
I thought, but ho could examine and
see. Upon examining and finding
that it was only my peg leg, be arose,
and with all the contempt he felt, he
said to me:
"D?-n you, I'm no b'ackstntth," and
made his way back towards the church,
muttering many anathemas upon me.
It soon got noised about how tho young
Doctor had sold Dr.-, and It was
quite awhile before he spoke to me
again. Well, many years have passed
since that night at-church. Dr.
-has no doubt been pardoned for
his "falling from grace," and ho and
I became good friends ar,d practiced
our profession together for several
years without a word to mar- the peaoo

AN OLD FAVORITE \
By. Rudywd Kipling
A FRENCH critic has Just declared that Kipling has the Anglo-Saxon
temperament modified by the Influence* of the orient. "Mandalay"
well expresses the fascination of the far east, although strict moral
ists condemn the laxity evident throughout the poem, especially in
the last stanza. The dawn 1? said really to "come up like thunder"
In Burma. Thecbaw was the last king of that country nnd was de
posed by tho British In 1886.

MR. CAREY'S SPEECH.
Other Interesting Features
of tho Occasion.
The Street Shows were Fairly Good
but the Skia Games Made the Street
Carnival a Disgrace.
Miss Jonie Boulwaro was crowned
queen of the carnival last Thursday
evening In tho opera bouse in the
presence of a very largo audience. The
ceremonies were brilliant and beauti
ful. Mr. James P. Carey, who was
here acting judge, made tho coronation
speech in a clever and witty speech.
Ho was Introduced by Grand Prelate
of the Knights of Pythias J. A Somer
The queon was attended by eight
knights in regalia as follows: M. L.
Nash, W. C. Winters, Walter Sloan,
John Peterson, R. W. Davis, Luther
Riper, Gregg Jeanes and Jesse Vance.
Master Hugh K. Alken, Jr., was the
page who led the procession, bearing
the crown on a velvet cushion. He
performed his part very gracefully and
it was one of the pettiest ftatures.
Tho Maids of Honor were: Misses Pau
line Anderson, Alma Shell Dessie Pow
ell, and Meta Sullivan.
The queen and the maids of honor
were beautifully dressed and the scene
in tho opera bouso was ouo of great
Miss Boulwaro received 1731 votes.
She Is the daughter of Mrs. Maria
Boulware and Is a member of one of the
oldest and most representative families
of Laurens. Besides being one of the
handsomost young ladies in Laurons,
she is one of the most popular. She is
the cashier of the Laurens Cotton Mills
store and her amiable character has
made for her hundreds of friends and
Miss Pauline Andeivon received the
next highest number o.' Yotes, 1034.
After the coronation a delightful ball
wns enjoyed in Fowler's Ha1!, which
was of course graced by the presence
of the queen and hgr oourt.
Tho Carniva1,. 60 far as tho street
part of it is considered, was a misera
ble thing. Most of tho sldc-6hows
wero pretty good of their kind. Sev
eral wero nasty and vicious. The most
obj' c-.Ionable feature was a lot of
"skin games" by which hundreds of
negroes and Ignorant whites wore
robbed. Several of the Lay ton Carni
val crowd wero arrested for disorderly
conduct. Accompanying though not a
part of the Company were a gang of
thieves, thugs and crooks. Two men
were held up and robbed during the
week, It Is said.
Tho Knights of Pythias made barely
more than expenses. But for tho vot
ing contest, they would have lost
money. Nobody ever wants to hear of
the Lay ton Carnival Company in these
During tho week a man calling him
self Thomas Roberts was arrested for
stealing cloth front a dry goods house
here. Chief Hughes recognized him,
from a picture in his possession, as-an
escaped convict wanted in May field,
Ohio. The Chief wired the Ohio pri
son authorities and they sent a man
here for him. Such aro tho people
who follow these shows.
Some of the merchants say their
trado Increased on account of the oar
nival. Others toll a different story.
The general effeot of the carnival
was bad. It, however, stimulated
trade at tho D sponsary.
