How it Ran in the Case of Mr. Truesdel
and Miss Phirer.
GREENWOOD, Jan. ;5.-A part of a
lively rouiance was acted here yester
(lay. Tie midday train on the G., C.
& N. railroad brought in a party of
ladies and gentle:nen who proved very
interestingii not only tt themselves, but
to those in our town who possessed any
degree of curiosity. One was an elderly
wid,.. lady, Mrs. Phifer, and another
he: handsome daughter, Iiss Bessie,
fr-)aj Whitrnires. The gentlemen were
Mr. E V. Truesdel and a friend from
Kersbaw. and Dr. Duckett from Ander
son. It seems that Mr. Truesdel and
Miss Phifer had agreed to undertake a
conjugal life, but the mother would not
consent; so plans were laid for an elope
ment during the trip to Greenville
where the young lady was going to
school, with a cousin.
The mother %uspecting something
wrong upou the young lady's refusal to
pack her "duds', with liercoubin's con
cluded to chaperone them as far as
Cl nton, but upon the train she en
countered the young Romeo, and the
direction was changed. Upon their
arrival here a consultation was held at
the depot, and it was concluded to
wait for the Greenville train, which
was done in the hotel parlor.
Meantine handsome Mr. Truesdel
sought the assistance of one of Green
wood's gallant young ien in the cap
ture of the pretty young lady, while
Dr. Duckett was aiding the mother.
Plans were hurriedly laid for the es
cape, and visit to a divine, but the
guard was too earnest and vigilant; so
the best that could be done was an ar
rangement to stop the train at the
junction, where a close carriage and an
anxious crowd were waiting, but the
scheme was given away by some one
and "all hands" disappointed.
THE COUPLE FINALLY SUCCEEDED.
GREENVILLE, Jan. 6.-There was a ro
mantic marriage in this city this after
noon. On Monday, Miss Bessie Phifer,
of Whitmire's Station, on the Geor
gia. Carolina and Northern Railroad,
boarded the Columbia and Greenville
train to return here to re-enter the
Greenville Female College, where she
has been for sometime. E. V. Truesdel,
a young telegraph operator of Kershaw
County, boarded the same train at the
junction this side of Greenwood. The
train stopped, and the young lady
started to get oft to join Mr. Truesdel,
who bad a vehicle waiting.
The young lady's mother had sus
pected that an elopement would be
attempted, and had accompanied her
daughter to prevent the elopement.
The three persons came on here. Mrs.
Phifer and her daughter stopped at
the house of a relative, and Mrs. Phifer
supposed that he had left the city, but
he was watching, and this afternoon,
learning that the young lady's mother
had gone for a walk, he procured a
carriage, and, boldly going to the house,
had his lady love to join him, and they
were swiftly driven to the house of a
minister and were married.
The young lady's absence was lear
ned too late, and when the mother
started out to search for her, she met
the happy husband returning from the
minister's house.-Special to State.

The County Teachers' Association
met at the new Graded Sehool buildin<z
on last Saturday.
Althou--h the weather was unfavor
able, a good number of teachers were
present, both to hear and to take part
in the <iscussions.
Prof. 1'. M. Huuter read a thought
fully prepared paper oa "conp-sition
work." He gave soie valuable ideas
as to how this subject should be treated
in our schools. Several teachers took
part in the discussion that followed,
and for a time it was quite animated.
It is very plain that this subject does
not receive tie attention it sliuld, and
it is well for its importauce t- be forci

Miss Ella Sheldon and Mr. M. W.
Purifoy were to have read papers, but
were both absent. They doubltess had
sufficient excuse, as they are inter

and would have been present had noth
It was suggested by Mrs. Long that
the programme be carried out, which
suggestion met with the approval of
"How can we best teach good man

at some length. A few teachers were
of the opinion that the teacher should

refer to the school, but to other places

One great mistake too often made in
Dur schools is that teachers advance
their pupils too rapidly. Pupils of
course wish to advance rapidly in the
chools, that is, they wish to lay down
ne book and take up a higher one as
fast as possible. It may be gratifying
to see children wish to go in a hurry,
but at the same time what we often
suppose to be progress is not progress.
