to a shopman. "These are not
the latest styles, are they?" she
asked, when the. gloves -were
"Yes, madam,'" replied the
shopman; "we have had themi
in stock only two days."
"I didn't think they were, be
cause the fashion paper says
black kids have tan stitches and
vice versa, I see the tan stitch
es, but not the vice versa."
The shopman explained that
Vice versa was French for seven

Farmers in this section have

The only remedy we cani ofinr
is shucks or leaves. llis r
miids the writer of speniding
the night once where there were
shuck beds. About 2 o'clock in
the morniig the big turning
over with every one in the house
took place. 'I'he old guard dog,
supposing, we guess, there waIs
some one in the shuck pen,
raised a bark. About that time
the old cow began to bawl and
the old horse, thinking it was
feed time, b)egan to squeal, and
then the old man began to rse11
his old1 woman for not stirring
up the Bed. The writer was
meditating over vwhere so many
night bugs could hide so well in
the day time, whien all at once
this thought~ occurredl to h im:

The Cateechece Sunday school
picnicked at Lay's bridge last
Saturday evening. Rev. W. G.
Mauldin was the orator and
made an eloquent speech. Sup

was had.
R1ev. A. C. Boiter, of Green
ville, has just closed a 4-weeks'
mieetinig at this place, with 50
additions to the church. Mr.
Boiter is an earnest worker.
Not a single sermon was preach
ed by anyone else during the
meeting. Some one whom then
devil has a 'mortgage over. and
is just about ready to close it,
set fire to his tent on last Mon
day, about 2 p. i., while no one
was present, af d burned it and
about 20 of his 187 chairs.
Fifty more of his chairs were
damaged more or less. Mr.
Boiter, determined not to be
downed, by the help of God and
some good people at Cateechee
built a brush arbor, repaired his.
chairs and carried the meeting
right on; also made him up a
purse of $65 toward buying him
another tent. He expects to
buy another one this week and
begin a meeting at Liberty in
a week or ten days. He expects
to be in Oakway, in Oconee
county, about July 15.
j The prayers of the wicked, we
are taught, prevaileth nothing
so J. Alonzo Brown says he is
confident the Lord heard the
prayer published in the S.-J. a
few weeks ago, for on last Sun
day, about 11 a. m., he was in
formed that his presence was
needed at the residenmce of Thos.
Hawkins, near Cateechee. In
obedience to the request he
gathered his top-piece, jumped
inl his huggy, and in a few in
utes found himself standing be- 1
fore Oscar Hawkins and Miss
Ninnie Gillespie, who were wvait

made them man and vife.

province is not understood by a Chi

morals 1, 2, 3. 4, etc., are recognized

Germany, Italy, etc., so the Chinese
written characters are spoken in to
tally different words and sounds in
the several provinces of China, with,
however, the important exception that
the mandarin language is spoken or
