CHELSEA'S NOTED BUNS.
All London Used to Visit Mrs. Hands
on Good Friday.
However religious observances may
change in England, the eating of hot
cross buns on Good Friday is not likely
to die out Still, enthusiasm in this
particular has considerably declined
since the days when Mrs. Hands kept
the Chelsea Bun House at the corner
of Jews' row, now Pimlico road. So
many people were in the habit of flock
ing there on Good Friday in order to
eat hot cross buns that on one occasion
50,000 persons assembled there, and
?250 was : taken , in the day for buns
atone. After this the inhabitants of
Chelsea protested against the noise and
disturbance this caused, and Mrs.
Hands; fearing to be restrained by" the
law, issued m 1793 a quaint proclama
tion, stating how, "desirous, therefore,
o? testifying her regard and obedience
to those laws by which she is happily ?
pto??iite?, sheis determined, though
much to her loss, not to sell cross buns
on that day to any person whatever,
out Chelsea buns, as usual."
TMs Mrs. Hands was something of a
character in her own way. The royal
family and many of the' aristocracy
used to visit her in the morning, and
Queen Charlotte even presented her
with a silver haif gallon mug contain
ing S guineas.. The house remained in
the possession of her family for some
time, as Sir Richard Phillips, writing a
few years before Its destruction, men
tions. After admitting that for upward
of thirty years he had never passed the
house without filling his pockets, he
goes on to say, "These buiis have af
forded a competency and even wealth
to four generations of the same family,
and it is singular that their delicate
flavor, lightness and richness have nev
er been successfully imitated." When
Banelagh was closed, the Bun House
dedined In popularity, though as late
as ISSO 24,000 buns were sold on Good
Friday alone.?London Qhronicle.
A Shrewd Yantee.
A certain Boston hotel man tells this
good story at his own expensef
When a smal: boy on the farm, his
folks often sent him to the neighbors
to l>uy a dozen eggs when their hens
failed to lay enough.
He noticed that the old farmer al
ways held each egg before a lighted
candle and examined it carefully. In
his Innocence of Yankee shrewdness
the boy supposed that this was prompt

detect whether the ?ggs were bad or

his eggs, according to custom, there

Pretty nearly every one has seen the

?... - -
Spartanburg's Candidate for
United State? Senate.
Backed by People of All Classes With
out Regard to Past Factional Af
K' filiations the Ex-Governor En
ters the Senatorial Race.
(From The Spartanburg Journal.)
Spartanburg's candidate for the
United States senate to succeed John
li McLaurin is ex-Governor John Gary
Evans. In a'residence of several years
he has established himself in the es
teem and , good will-of the people of this
county to such an extent that he is re
garded with no less affection and inter
est that would be the case were he a
native born Spartan. His popularity
ext?nds to all classes. Some of his
closest political and personal friends
are to be found among thoee who were
formerly his strongest opponents.
To know Governor Evans has been
tc appreciate his fine qualities, his
sterling honesty and his eminent qual.
iflcations as a statesman and citizen.
He carried this county by large major
ities for governor and senator, and he
will carry it this year by a much larg
er majority than ever; indeed, it might
almost be said that he will receive the
unanimous democratic vote of the
county, so great Is the local interest in
his candidacy. His personal popular
ity extending from Spartanburg County
as a basis, is radiated all over the
Piedmont section ! the state and in
every profession, trade and calling
Governor Evans is looked upon as a
s^endid type , of a South Carolinian.
His Strength Is With A!! Classes.
His friendship and aid have ever
been extended to the large agricul
tural interests of the state, and our
large and growing industrial popula
tion has come to regard him as a
staunch and sincere friend. At the
same time Governor Evans has nevez
been regarded as hostile to capital
and corporations in any sense, and
has many friends and supporters
among those who have large invest
ments in cotton and other manufactur
ing industries. While there can hard
ly be said to be any logic in politics.
Governor Evans is- nevertheless the
logical candidate to succeed McLaurin,.
by reason of the vigorous and won
derfully prophetic fight he made on
the commercial statesman five years
a$o. He then said McLaurin was a
republican, and that gentleman has
himself since proven the charge be
yond a doubt. Governor Evans was
utrt the only prophet in that line, how
ever, but he was the only man who
m tde a fight on McLaurin then who is
n? w a candidate before the people as
hi* successor. He evidently knows
a republican when he sees one, and
tris is some assurance, if any were
needed, that his own democracy is
Has Been Faithful to Every Trust.
Governor Evans' equipment and
qualifications for the sena:orship are
undoubted, and his services to the peo
ple of the state certainly give him a
claim upon their earnest consideration
of his candidacy. He has ever been
faithful to the trust repos?e in him by
the democrats of South Carolina, and
retains to the utmost the respect and
confidence of those who know him.
The very fact that he has held the j
support of those who were his political J
associates in times when there were
sharp lines drawn between the faction
al affiliations of our people and has
since the effacement-'of those lines
drawn to himself the good will and
friendship of those who formerly op
posed him, shows him to be a man
who is steadfast in character and emi-1
nent in ability. He is strongest where I
he is best known, and is backed by
the support of the thickly populated
Piedmont counties and he is sure to
be a formidable factor in the race.
Til Iman Hands Off.
In view of numerous reports about
this man and that man being "Till'
man's candidate" for the senate, a
statement made by Senator Tillman in
Washington recently may prove of in
terest to those watching South Caro
"There is really no reason why I
should mix up in this race," said Sen
ator Tillman, "nor do I intend to take
the slightest part in it one way or the
other. It is true that before Evans
entered the race there was but one
candidate in the field, Representative
Latimer, who had not at one time op
posed me. For this reason, thyaking
to hurt Representative Latimer's
chances for election, the report baa
been circulated that I was backing
Latimer It is untrue to say that I
am backing any one of the candidates.
Now that Mr. Evans has definitely an
nounced his candidacy for the sena*--?,
there will be two of my former sup
porters in the race. Another reason
