La Grippe.
An ache in the back,
A :d a pain in tpe head
That's the Grippel
A choke in the throat,
And a yearning for bed
Thats the Grippel
A river of hest,
Then a shiver of cold,
A feeling of being
Two hundred years old;
A willingness, even,
To do as you're told -
That's the Grippel
An arrow of pain, now
In this place, now there
That't the Grippe!
A feeling of doubt
As to where you are at
That's the Grippel
A stupid sensation
Of course, wholly newl -
A foolish depression -
Why should you ftel blue?
A doubt as to whether
This really is you
That's the Gri1.pel
Strange visions at night,
That deprive you of rest
That's the Gripptl
A taste in your mouth, and
A weigbt on your chest
Tha's the Gripptl
A tired sensation
TIbat rusns thro' your veins,
A queer combination
Of oches and of pains,
A vapid admission
Of absence of brtins
That's the Grippel

How the Dogs Turned Out.
Mr, Claude Hester, Pickens, S C
Dear Claude:-I have been want
ing to writNyou for some time to tell
you how the dogs turntd out. I. did
not get a chance to work them much
until just before leaving Charleston,
and therefore could not do so. About
a week before leaving, Mr. Harris
aud myself took two hunts, and be
tween u.? killed five deer I buu'ed
the dogs at my home place for fix.
end they tread an enormous coo'n
weigbing 22 pounds . I had a negr"
to throw him out of the tree, and we
had another chame, but . they soojn
overtook him, and we had a great
"coon" fight. The first day we went
out hunting deer; we hunted with
another pock of hounds, so as to
teach the doga. This time we re
ma1ind two days. My doies were all
lame, their feet being cut with oyster
shella trailing coons at nEy home over
oyster shell banks, but it would have
done your heart good to see them
tbe lirst day out, They did not seemi
to know much about the matter, and
the men who owned the pack of
hounda laughed sat them and
said they were rabhit dogs That
afteirnoon', however, we killed a doe,
and they i ot a taste of the dleer blood

Picke,:s, and wie brought ba~ct in the
buggy by you was very lame; in~ fs~ct,
thei wagon had run over one of his
feet, and he was going on three legs,
could not put his fouiath leg to
the grunsid at all. I did not think
he was fit to hunt, but after we had
b-on o~ut about an hour I hetard thet
entire pumnk comning to me in full cry.
AMI at once a splerndid buck came
dartong t~brough the canebrakH with
the pack about 100 yards behind
him. He wheeled s he saw me
and ran broadside in front of me. I
had to shoot him three time.s before
he fell. As he fell the pack of dogs
wheeled into the opening and turned
nu the trail just where the deer had
tul ned, and to my astonishment my
little spotted dog on three legs vas
leading the pack by about ten feet,
and you could have put a blanket
over the rest of the nose. lie kept
the lead, straonge to say, and was the
first (log to put his mouth on the

deer'd throat he was plunging about
a nme and he throw the little fellow
off, and he went and laid down as if
he bad done his duty and was sat
A little later on they jumped a
deer, and the deer and dogs all got
out of the drive, and kept running
for about two hours. They must
have gone for miles, but finally the
drivers drove the deer back and
brought him within 100 yards of our
wagon-too far to shoot, but near
enough to see the deer and the doge,
My other spotted dog, the first one
you bought, was about 100 yards be
hind the deer, and at least a quarter
of a mile ahead of the big dog
"Quit,'' and the little three-legged
dog, and the rest of the pack had
given out entirely, so we had the
laugh on the other fllows.
The next tiue we went out we
hunted them by themselves, with one
old dog, and we killed three deer,
In the two spotted dogs and the
black dog "Qait" I think I have three
as good deer dogs as can be found
in the state. On our last hunt
"Quit" was always the first dog to
jump, and he sticks to a trail like a
