DUSKY STOI’.Y TEI-KEUS.
Portraitures of Negro Character.
From the Sou'htri, !>’ ;■1 r ■] uly.
There had been a log-rolling on the
plantation, a great cutting and clearing
up of all the lalli n dead timber in a field
that had lain fallow for a year, with the
important accompaniment of a barbecue
and a keg of whisky. The creeping still
ness of age being a tiling abhorred hv old
Uucle Tony and, if possible, concealed
for he dreaded the exlub thm of anything
which might give license to a suspicion
that he was, as bis irioods would have
put It, “gwine ter send’’—be u .-natur
ally desirous of exciting admiring emula
tion among his male cronies in otuer lines
than that of story telling, ins own pecu
liar forte.
liM I lUI It*.
The log-rolling was an opportunity
which he could not neglect, and ho failed
not to attract attention, an well l>y deed a
with the hand-stick as l>v boasts ol loo
nier distinction among his fellows; in
deed, all agreed that lie vvbs si ill ••much
uv a man.” Pleased and exoib and hv Hus
admiration, the old man exerted hiiueell a
little too tar, and so got a strained hack
to remind him of his years. However, a
proluse communion with the keg of
spirits, the contents of which wore dealt
out with lavish baid, quickly atlorded re
lief, and he went home in a very happy
trtune of mind—if bis step was a little un
steady—and no one looked more ‘'spi v
than he, while the festivities were going
on iu his j aid that evening.
Uncle Tony’s big white yard was a sort
of rendezvous for the whole negro quar
ter, and it whs no uncommon thing for
all his neighbors and friends, oid and
young, to gather there after supper—the
young to play games and dance, and the
elders to sit around the fires and gossip,
relating quaint asiecdotea and telling in
all seriousness strange, inert dilde tales.
A hanjoist had put In an appearance,
and, alter strumming for hours upon his
instrument to rapid measures suited to
the “double shuffle,” the "back-step,”
etc., in which outlaudisn dances all in
dulged with that abandon and intensiiy ol
enjoyment characteristic of African testi
viiies, yielding to persuasion, the musi
cian sang In a pleasing voice several old
time plantation songs, one about “Cotton
eye Joe;” another beginning:
"My ole mistis minis' me
Wen she die she sot me free;”
and many verses of “Old upper,” the
subjoined being the only ttvu I can recall:
••Old Napper come ter my house,
I fought ’e wash ter see me;
But wen J come ter lino out,
lloue ’allude my wife ter leap me;
oh, weh’a ole Napper, yooukee, yoonkec?
VVeh’s ole Napper?—gdue away!
“Ef I could retell dat niager—
Hat blasted oilseed Napper,
Id fling ’lrn een a mortar
An’ pouu‘ ’mi up ivr pepper!
Oh, wen’s ole Napper, yooukee, yoonkec?
Web’s ole Napper?—gone away!”
At one of the fires sat Uncle Tony and
tig wife, their friend, Aunt Ca’line, and
others. And just now a young woman
named Dilsey had the floor.
“1 met dab taller-lace’ liucKra hoy, Ben
Mathis, down de road dis in awn in’,” she
said addressing Aunt Ca’line, "an’ ’e toie
ine a tale. ’K sHy one tune aedicaied
nigger an’ a unedicated nigger went a
flshtn’, an’ de unedicated nirger notch a
great big fish an’ de edioated nigger dina
cotch uutt’n hut a litly busy one. An’ binie
by Uey ’spute wid one ’nudder ’bout how
dey gwine ’vyido de game—’caze bote \iv
um claim dah big fish. He edicated lug
ger say, co’se dah big fish his’n, an’ ’o
’splain it dis er way.
“Ought’s a ought, an’ ligger’s a llgeer,
liis yuh big fish b long ier ills nigger.
“An’ den de ui edicatcd nigger sny.
•Ob-yl is datso, sho-uul? Well. I reck’n
dab big fish iuus’ he yo’u den. Oh-> 1 i
wish 1 was edioated lak you is! An’Ue
edicated nigger up’u tote de big fish < -ff
home.”
They all laughed at this, but Aunt Ca’-
line waß quick to say: “I donh b'lieve
dass so now. liati medicated tugger
muster amh had de sense ’e uz burned
wid, ef dat de wav ‘e do. Shoo! liah
Uuokra boy de* say all dat ter mek out
lak us black tokos is foolish.”
“1 Unow’d dat,” Dilsey declared, “an’ I
up’u tole ’iui—
••Shoo! oh, shoo! nigger darky—shoe!
I dou’t drink tea an' 1 don't drink coffee.
An 1 don’t dilly-dally wid a black nigger
daray!”
Which curious rigmarole no doubt ef
fectually squelched the offendiug “taller
face’Buckra hoy 1” 1 am well a a arc that
this will strike tbe reader as incredible
nonsense( which undoubtedly It Is). but 1
am ready to assure him with nil duo
solemnity that 1 have often board the
above recited with much vain glory and
aattsiacliou by Dllse.v, or Sllvey, or Jinny
(as the case might be) when provoked by
white children, who were ol course
covered with shame by the sweeping con
demnation it involved. Wbv, when ap
plying this remarkable piece of Invective
to representatives of tbe white luce, thev
never substitute for the closing Ime
something like, “1 don’t dilly-dallv wid a
taller face’ Buckra,” aud thus sav what
they whs ever a dark mystery, and
us such we will have to leave it.
No dusky company of this sort could re
main together long without some refer
ence to “sperits,” and in the courso ol tbe
evening Until* Tony was Induced to re
peat bis remarkable and oft-told story of
bow be once treed a ghost, and to continue
with some interesting remarks on the
subject oi "sperits” in general.
‘•You let Buckra people iool you, ler
mek you tiuk der ainb no sioh t’iiiE es
sperits!” said the old man m solemn
warulug, when someone made reference
to tbe prevailing unbelief on ibis subject
jn that quarter. "Bern sperits is deb, 1
tell yer— an’ mo’n dat, people kin see uni
sometimes, spesbly dese y up people wut
borned wid a caul.”
"linker Tony,” said Dilsey, "’spose’n
l’uz ter meet up wid a sperlt—wut urns’ 1
Ido?”
“Alek out lak yer ainh scared an’ go
right on— dass do way ter do. Tell ’iiu,
‘Howdy!’ un’gie’im de road. An’ Ihdiiui
tell yer. be mighty partio’iar not ter run
’gtnse 'im wutoouicver you mer do.”
“I’eople sees du sign er sperits heap er
fimes wen dey douh kuow it,” continued
Uncle Tony. “You belter look out wen
yer gwlne ’lone de roa l een de nighttime,
an’ leel a warm href tech yer on de back
er yer neck—dass a spirit". You better
look out weu yer gwine 'long on a moon

‘‘l never know’d de.vcome-lak rabbits,”
•aid Aunt Ua’llne; "but i know’d 'bout
dem ’ceitlul-leokiu’ black cuts. I.aws-u
--inuesy! hit mek me so scared Iduniio wut
ter do, weu 1 run up on one dem cals 'wav

"Dey comes lak rabbits, an’ cats, an’
dogs, an’ 1 dunno wut all,” said Uncle
Tony, "yes, sub—an' one time I yebd
tell er one oumin’ lak a deer. Dey tell me
nobody could kill dat deer. Dey shoot at

*u’ shoot at It, but hit go right on des

MAKI VC. ROADWAYS.
Something that Ought to be Gen
erally Known ami Done.
Front tho Country Centlmnen.
1. Make the public roads neat and
smooth, and pleasant and profitable to
travelers and in driving to market.
2. Never throw rubbish of any Wind into
highways in order to get rid ot it. nor de
posit cord wood, logs or timber at road
sides to frighten passing horses.
’!. All owners who build their houses
facing square the public roads should
show at least the same respect to these
roads that they do to their own fields by
excluding all weeds.
4. Remove all loose stones from the
wheel-track once a month, and all fixed
stones, which strike and break the
wheels, jar the loads, rack the harness
and tire the horges.
5. Where fixed stones cannot be re
moved, cover them well with gravel or
other road material.
(i. Hememtnr that a fixed stone may
strike different wheels a thousand times
like a sledge hammer, and cause a hun
dred dollars of damage. To remove it
might cost five cents.
7. Never make a highway of muck,sods
or soft material scraped from the side
ditches, which is worked into deep mud
in wet weather, but draw them into the
barnyard for the compost heap.
8. Where the road bed has not a dry
bottom cut a ditch in the middle three feet
deep, Hnd lengthwise with it, with side
escape ditches at depression**, and till it
witti gravel or broken stone, coarse below
and finer near the top.
!*. l’lant shade trees three or four rods
apart along the line, to allow air to circu
late, sun to shine, and mud to dry.
10. Keep the roadside smooth, mow the
grass lor hay, and thus secure a good
tra. k when the centre ot the road is en
cumbered with impassable snow drifts in
winter.
11. In windy places makothe windward
mud fences of barbed wire, to prevent the
accumulation of drifts ol snow.
12. No.ver make the public highway a
a barnyard, nor leave wagons, plows and
machines to encumber the road.
I. Never endanger those who travel hy
drivingunmanageable nr fractious horses
to trigbten and annoy other horses. Sell
the unruly animals or put them to steady
home labor with other horses.
11. Never drive horses across a railway
without first looking both ways, or, if in
the dark, without listening. It is better
to take this caro 100 tlmps than to be
crushed by a locomotive once by its ueg.
lent.
10. Never keep a noisy, barking dog. to
bark at quiet passengers or passing
teams, to terrify horses anti cause them
to run away, upset carriages and break
liui bs.
The observance of these injunctions
will give smooth, hard, satislactory roads
for farmers aud travelers to pass over,
tiling their farms nearer to market, in
crease the value of their farms, make
pleasant neighbors ami attach boys and
young men to the country.
FRKAKS OF A COMPASS.
A Dubious Story in Connection With
a Human Magnet.
From ths Toronto Moil,
A strange phase of the mystery of the
mariner’s compass was made manifest on
the occasion of a recent cruise ot the Cyg
net. The yacht left here fora run across
the lake to Niagara. Everything was fair
and smiling. A large party ol jolly people
were on board, who enjoyed the trip
greatly. The gallant commander was
keeping a careful eye to his bearings, as
be was desirous of making a qtiiok trip,
but despite this care it was found when
they oatue within hail ot land that they
were seven mites out off heir course, hav
ing come out opposite Wilson, N. Y. The
commander was greatly troubled. It was
decidedly a reflection on his seamanship,
and lie was exceedingly annoyed, lie
regarded the compass suspiciously, and
carefully examined its surroundings, hut
could discover nothing that would ac
count for anv vagaries on its part. While
he was standing gazing gloomily at the
tremulous needle it cave a sudden start.
The commander looked up and touud that
a stout member of the party bad in the
meantime approached. As he went by
the erratic needle followed his move
ments, and finally whtiu be stopped at tile
bow the needle pointed straight at him.
A series of experiments were then in
stituted, and it was found when the stout
gentltmau was nearthe perfidious pointer
followed him about in ati uly affection
ate manner. Noor.e could account for It
until at last the disturbing element ac
knowledged that he had ben indulging iu
the wild delights of an iron tonic for some
weeks back, and he was afraid that his
system bail become permeated with the
metal. This explanation was accepted
by all, and the secretary was requested t >
communicate the tacts to the Philosophi
cal Society. In the meantime the unfor
tunate gentleman, who is an enthusiastic
yachtsman, is debarred from pursuing
his favorite recreation. He <s, however,
taking a spoonful ol loadstone tonic Hires
timeß a day, which Is thought will soon
extract sufficient of tbo iron from his
system to permit of his ones again indulg
ing iu his nautical diversions.

trot,* a rut~in~/i<iy Letter,
Yesterday a party of us drove over to
call on Uapt. Brown, a son ol tbe immor
tal John Brown, The Captain is a fine
looking man, very courteous aud very
intelligent. He gave us a most interest
ing desorption of the island, refusing,
however, to talk much oi himself. His
homo is pretty and pleasant and full oi
evidences of a cultivated taste and mind.
He is a surveyor by profession and a de
voted student of geology. He invited us
into bis studio out on trie beach. It is on
an elevated stone, overhung with lindens.
Tbe walls an decorated with iviea and
vim s, while at your loot tlio water splashes
aud plays, lu it he lias a good-sized tabic
and a comfortable chsir. The sun never
reaches it, and it was deligbtlullv cool
and inviting. There be spends much of
bis leisure time reading or writing or
stuuving, trylng-to solve the ecological
problems ami mysteries so abundant in
this region. He look us to see some re
markable scratches on tbe rocks, truces
ol glacial action. They are visible all
along tbe island wherever ihs stono is
laid bare. Tbe whole lake-bed shows con
clusively that it was cut out entirely hy
the action of the great masses ol ice. lhe
track of tue glacier is as long and wide
as the anti-climate brid.e is long, which
is the whole length and breadth of tbe
lake. Htrontiaii, a rare mineral used m
mariulactumig fireworks, is found almost
every where on tbe island, it is usually
ioiind in pockets In tbe underlying rocks.
♦ 'apt. Brown is by no means an ordi
nary mini, either mentally or plivsicallv.
He lock us into bis "den,” as be calls it.
a little bouse of several rooms, built s
short distance from bis residence, and I
noticed that bis book-shelves contained a
number ol well-selected books, few that
any but a man of Intellect would care to
read. He also reads and speaks French
well. Prof. Orten, State Geologist, is to
be bis guest next week, and together thev
will explore more thoroughly the islands
and Uieir formation.
If you want a delightful summer re

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 1886.
A MARVELOUS MATH 1.51 A: If I AN
Wliat He Could Tell byHulibing His
Head Aguiusta Tombstone.
“Lying” Jim Townsend is a noted Bo
hemian in Nevada, and well known in
California. He is a genial, convivial soul,
whose lies harm uo one, hut are rather
evidences of the abnormal development of
the power of exaggeration. He is cred
i'cd in N'cvhilh with having been toe
originator of some ot Mark Twain’s best
jokes, including the story of tne man who
took a contract to run a tunnel a certain
distance, and having dug through the hill
in less distance than tfial specified in the
agreement completed his contract by run
ning the tunnel the rest of the way on
trestle work, saysthe San Francisco Post.
Jim was taking a stroll with a friend
and talking over old times, when he
asked:
“lty the way, did you ever know ?”
“No, i think not.”
“Well, sir, he was a wonderful fellow —
the greatest mathematician that ever
lived. You could propound the most diffl
cult problem in mathematics to him and
he would give you the answer off-hand at
the snap of your fingers, while other
people of reputation in that line would
use a quire of paper and a gross of lead
pencils, and take a week to reach the
same result. Why, I’ll tell you what the
fellow could do." He oould go into a
graveyard and rub his bend against a
tombstone and tell you bow much the
corpse weighed when it died.”

Mammoth Millinery House
It is always expected to find the most complete Millinery
Stock, but this season excels it. The stock in fine Spring
and Summer Millinery is immense, and we are retailing
on our first tloor at wholesale prices, which is a saving of 30
to 40 per cent. In other words, the patrons of KIiOUS
KOFFS pay no more for their Millinery than the same
goods would cost to the largest retailers here.
It should also be considered that ladies are not restricted
in their selections to such limited stocks as are found else
where, but can make their choice from an almost endless
variety of shapes in fine and medium grades—white, black,
and colored —for ladies, misses, and boys.
Our lines of Flowers, Tips, Plumes, etc., arc in the
same proportion.
Our Trimmed Hats, to look at them, would delight
you, and to price them would gladden the hearts of those who
love to save their dollars. We continue the sale of our
Ribbons at same prices heretofore.
