FATE OF A LIGHTING DOG.
BY 1". BUKT IIAUTFi
A man he owned a terrier dog?
A bob-tailed onery cuss?
And tliat there -dog got that there man
la many an ugly mum;
For the man he waa on his muscle,
And the dog he was on his bite,
So to kick the dogoned animal
Waa sure to raise a light.
A woman owned a Thomas cat
That fit at fifteen pounds,
The other cats got up and slid
"Whew that there cat was round.
The man and dog eamc along one day,
Where the women she did dwell.
And the purp he growled ferociously,
Then went for the cat like?everything
He tried to chaw the neck of the cat.
Rut the cat he wouldn't be chawea,
So he lit upon the back of that there dog,
And bit 1 and chawed! and clawed 1
Oh? the hair it flew! and the dog he yould
As the claws went into his hide,
And chunks of flesh was peeled flftm his
Then he flummoxed and he kicked,4and
he died I
Tho man he ripped and cussed and swore,
As he gathered a big brickbat,
That he would be darned essentially
If he didn't kill the cat!
Rut the old woman allowed she'd be bles
sed if he did,
And snatched up an old shot gun,
Which was fired and peppeied his dia
With bird Bhot number one.
They toted him home on a window blind,
And the doctor cured him up I
Rut he never was known to fight again,
Or to own another purp. ?
Folks may turn up their snoots at this here
I don't care a cuss for that;
All I want to show is, that lighting dogs
May tackle the wrong Tom cat*
Translated from the French, for the Orangeburg
Times, by E. Weiss.
On a dnrk and rainy evening; in the
year 1793, a man already in the decline
of life, dressed as a common peasant, was
seen traveling, on a narrow, bushy road,
which joined the great road, leading to
the city of Rennes. By his side, a young
girl was walking; she was wrapped in a
thick brown woolen mantle.
They advanced slowly and lu pain, on
this slippery and mirery road. Tbe old
man tottered at tbe cavities of tbe roud,
as tho dnrkuess hindered him from tread
ing firmly; lie was ulso quite uncertain
what direction of the road he should fol

tbe young girl tried in vain, to support
him and quicken his pace.

we are no further from tho farm of 12*

despairingly, "for I would not be able to
go farther, let what will happen."
Thejr continued their route, but the
farther they advanced, the more they
found it difficult. The young girl, whoso
energy, to this time, had almost sustain
ed her father; did bor best to continue
traveling, on this slippery, luirey, soil;
while her loct suhk at each footstep.
"My God!" she cried, with an emo

pursuit of them, and although it was
dark, their unilorms* and plumes were
visible. Tho two travellers, by an in

"The citizen Mayor, came to the cas

and his daughter. By my lady ! these
people made themselves scarce, and the
castle is pillaged. But the old traitor

old frian, "and we wish to hire a carriage
to convey us thither; do you know of |

"Hire a carriage 1" replied Dominic,

at the same time, his eyes were fixed on
the delicate bauds, which the young girl

her '"vom the effects of the fire, and per

"How Dominic 1" answered the Baron
calmly, "is it thus you receive me ? what

"To me, personally, none. They say
that you havo called in strangers and
sown the seed of civil war. That is a
crime. Of that, I am not the judge. I

"In the crowd," said he, "we will not
be noticed, and we can perhaps bargain
for a carriage."
When they arrived at tho hall, it was
filled with people, some talking loudly.
The two fugitives, slipped in unnoticed.
The Baron culled for a pot of cider, aud
sat down at an isolated table, with Ma

swords and rusty pistols, were discours

low voice, to'her father.
"Whore shall we go ?" said the Baron,
"may the "will of God be done!"
"Let us try at least to, procure a car

am going to speak to the innkeeper. It I
will seem quite natural, for a woman to

Matilda arose and went in search of

Matilda, approached the individual,
not without ropugnnuce. His veritable
likeness of a baudit, inspired her with
profound terror. Rosseau seemed to per
ceive it, and while examining heir with
attention, commenced bargaining with
her, about the price of the carriage.
"But alter nil, citoyenne (fem do citi

I will show it to you."

Matilda, had advanced too far, to re

courage, she went out among those men,
who were highly excited by liquor, and I

rudely on tho shoulder, "do you not

hand, and squeezing it, "it seems you

by great emotion.
"Itis uaele?s," cried Kernudrau, quite
coolly. "I have ray carriage; and you

They went out immediatoly toward tho

would cut off your head ?"
Those hideous words, had hardly

sprang toward tbe door, to open it. Ho
fouud it barred. Without loosing his
precious linio in trying to open it, he fan
