Experience of a liravo Laurens Man,
Horn in Ireland, at llattery Wag
ner, Charleston Harbor.
Last Saturday, tho 18th of July, was
tho fortieth anniversary of the battle
of Battery Wagner lo Charleston Har
bor. Tbat battle lasted from early
dawn till !> O'clock at night. The bat
tle consisted of artillery lighting up ' ,
nearly suusot, when tho Union forces
advanced to the assault in three strong
columns. Charge after charge was
made and repulsed, leaving many dead
and dying from both sides aftor each.
After the battle was at last over and
the Confederates were left in posses
sion, the victors were gathering the
wounded to be sent to the city, when a
sergeant with his squad camo upon a
wounded Irish soldier, and aftor exam
ining him a moment said: "No uso
bothering with him, he will bo doad in
ten minutes, and would take the room
of a live mau on the boat."
This Irish soldier lay there all night
without food or water, with a second
wound entirely through bis body, and
being found by another soldier in tho
morning was given a cup of cotl'oo and
placed on a I oat tobe taken to tho
hospltel In the city.
To-day that soldier, left for dead on
tho battle Hold forty years ago, was
seen on tho streets of Laurens looking
good for forty tears more. Mr. Hugh

Tlx- Holy City In (ho DlrtlCMt Sjfut In
Mecca, the holy city of tiv* tilth,
Is called by many names. ?O'?e call
It "(he Mother of Purity," 'tho Cita
del of Arabs," "the Holy Mosque."
Others speak of it ns "Iho Met bor of
Compassion," "tho supreme Bauctlty,"
"the Guardian Angel of AJ-am." The
devout never oiler the word Mecca
without adding to if soino adjective
[of praise, such as "lite blessed," "(ho
I exalted," "the great," "tho highly es
teemed," and so o;i. The town itself
Is about two miles in length and 0110
mile in breadth.
Tho dirtier the pilgrim keeps himself
the more respected he is :t? a pious
Moslem. Consequently Mecca, being
as it Is the most snored city of tho
faith, is literally the Ullhlest i:i Islam.
The most important streets measure
about ten yards in width. The rest:
nro mere lanes, wonderfully and pic
turesquely crooked and some six feet
wide. The streets were crowded with
touts, camels, mules, asses, horses,
pariah dogs and a motley crowd of pil
grims, unspeakably disheveled and un
washed, while the lanes WOI'0 nbso>
Itltoly filled with every kind of offal
and refuse. Mecca, which lies in a
hollow, would be a regular cesspool
woro it not for the pariah dogs, lean,
snarling brutes of a bright yellowish
color, that serve the purpose of scav
engers, and the Uorce, dry, Arabian
sun that is the solo sanitary Inspector
in (lie country. The dill the dogs make
at night is Indescribable. A pack of
Jackals would be quiet in comparison.

Verdict Against the St, Paul for #1:1:28
?Claim Against the Greenwich
Thursday afternoon Judgo Dant/ler
adjourned tho court of common pleas.
Only two cr three jury cases were
trlod. (Orders were passed in a numbor
of cases and routino business was
The most interesting case tried was
that of Mrs. Alice Young against the
St. Paul Piro and Marine insurance
I Company. The plaintiff) suing for
$l?O.), got a verdict of $1:128. Mrs.
Young's dwelling in Clinton was burned
last year and was insured in this com
pany for $1600. The company claimed
that representations were made that
this was the total amount of insurance
carried by the plaintiff on the- house
but after the lire it developod that an
other company had a policy. The plain
tin" denied any such representation.
The case of Mrs. Young against tho
Greenwich Insurance was compro

A Demonstrated Failure.
Insisting that tho dispensary law
should bo rigidly on forced in Charles
ton tho Newbarry Observer declares
that a return to the metropolitan polica
system would be bettor than the pres
ent condition of affairs. What tho Ob
server really means is that tho law
shou'd be enforced at any and all
events, but it^ reference to the "me
tropolitan police" is unfortunate. The
facts are, and we speak from personal
knowledge and observation, that the
situation was not materially better or
worse in Charleston when that system
was maintained. Whiskey was sold
freely and openly In those days, much
as it is now . Th 1 writer was conduct
ing a paper then in Cbarlestan and the
policy of the p.ipor was to criticize tho
metropolitan police. <>n two occasions
persons known to bo engaged in tho il
licit sale of liquor requested him to
"let up" on tho metropolitan police,
saying that it was found satisfactory by
tho liquor so) 1 _? r-. Tbeso persons er
roneously supposed that tho paper sym
pathized with them as violators of tho
law because it was opposod to tho dis
pensary system. One of them wont so
far as to threaten withdrawal of sub
scriptions to the paper by himself and
eight friends. The Observer's general
contention may be sound but It should
suggest some other than an abundantly
demonstrated failure as a remedy,
Safeguard the Children.
Notwithstanding all that is dono by
boards of health and charitably in
clined persons the death rate among
small children is very high during the
hot weather of the summer months in
the large cities. There is not probably
one case of ho vel complaint in a hun
dred, however that could not bo cured
by Iii? timely use of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholora and Diarrhoea Remedy.
