months after this the avaricious

asked: 4,Well, Charlie, how are

well indeed," Charlie returned,
cheerfully.; ; "I've got $18 saved."
The young lady blushed and looked

Who ?Saved" lt.
MR. EDITOR : I see the following
in a letter to the News and Cou
"The Bank of Saluda is now as
sured. Seven leading citizens have
entered into a contract with Maj.
W. J. Gaines, of the Augusta
Chronicle, by which he is to work
up the capital stock for a stipu
lated BU m. Maj. Gaines saved the
Farmers Bank of Edgefield, and
he will have no trouble in found
ing ajbank at this place."(Saluda.)
Now, Mr. Editor, the "Major"
may have saved the Farmers Bank,
whatever that means ; but if it is
meant to say that the "Major"
brought this flourishing institution
into existence or was its chief pro
moter we deny the impeachment.
That honor belongs to one J. E.
Smith, who was at the time a
school teacher in the Big Creek
section. He induced the Big Creek
Alliance to take np the matter and
later made a speech before the
County Alliance that was the
cansa causar-A, the causingcause of,
bringing forth the lusty child.
Tillman, Talbert, Timmerman took
up the matter along with Mr.
Smith and the child was christened
The truth of history demands this
much of one who ought to know,
"If he sh on kl live to be
The last leal' upon the tree
In the spring"
He would st md to that racket.
By the way , are those "Green
wood gentlemen" going to resign?
I Voted in the Affirmative.
That is, Mr. Editor, I voted for
Mr. Gaines for the Senate and Mr.
Yeldell for the House, and now
that these gentlemen are residents
of Greenwood county, I think I
have aright to recall my vote, (with
hundreds of others who voted as 1
did, and who would like to join
me) and declare their election null
and void. These gentlemen are
aliens and non-residents of Edge
field county, and are no more en
titled to represent Edgefield in the
Senate and House of Representa
tives than bas "the man in the
moon." And their failure to va
cate their Edgefield offices is noth
ing more nor less than gross bald
headed presumption on their part,
and demands the denunciation of
all the good people of Edgefield.
I understand that they say that
the law as laid down in thu Gen
eral Statutes gives them the right
to hold on to their Edgefield offices,
-;*. .moiiara -nAt-where, they live,
seemingly cover their unrighteous
and ungainly conduct in usurpiag
the rights of our people, but there
is another constru0??lJil t? u?'E&Hi,
thelaj^ii*fnr?ch they rely, and
The true intent and proper legal
meaning of that law will leave the
gentlemen in the low grounds of
sorrow. And the law will be tested

The commencement exercises of
Mrs. E. Y. Sheppard's school on
last Thursday evening were quite a
success. The entire programme
evinced careful training on the
part of the teacher and much skill
and originality was displayed by
the pupils in the rendition of the
songs, dialogues and recitations,
while everv part of the admirable
programme was well carried out,
yet there are a few pieces which
merit special mention. The duet
by Esther Boulware and Cleveland
Cori ey was well received by the
audience. "Shirt Buttons" by Miss
Wissie Corley and Mike Smith
would be pleasing to any gather
ing. A recitation by Master Willie
Boulware, "The Yankee in Love,"
was certainly enjoyable. In the
dialogue "Aunt Susan Jones," Miss
i Sallie Proctor acted the old coun
try woman to perfection, and
brought out peals cf laughter by
her backwoods brogue and her ex
cellent imitation of an old wo
man's cracked voice. "The First
Settlers Story" was recited by Miss
Louise Coleman with excellent
taste, and evinced much thought
and study in its preparation.

Red Hair in all Ayres.
Since time immemorial red bair
bas been the objeet of ill-humored
jokes-just why no one seeme to
know, unless it be that Juda
Iscariot was thus endowed, says
the San|Francisco Examiner. And
yet, despite the popular prejudicr
against auburn locks, ther*? are
few things moro beautiful than a
woman with such bair.
Red-headed women have played
prominent parts in the world's
history and have caused many a
kingdom to tremble and even fall.
Helen of Troy was red-haired,
and she certainly caused trouble
enough for one woman. Catherine
I. of Russia, Joan of Arc, Elizabeth
lanJM?fldo tejL ?tafttt. Anne
! aud all aro famous.
Nevertheless, it is a curious
fact that in all ages there has
jen aversion to hair of this hue*
the color of war and bloodshed,
and the cruelest gods of savage
races have always beerj adorned
with red topknots.
The ancient Egyptians were
violently opposed to red hair and
once a year burned a maiden of
this desorption in the hope of
exterminating or lessening what
they considered a curse.
In Spain, red hair is abhorred
on the ground that it is "Judas
hair." Among some savage races
red hair is held in great esteem,
especially among some of the
In New Zealand a red-headed
woman is considered as OD the
right road to paradise.
Students of red-hairology say
that a woman thus adorned is more
cruel, brighter, more deceptive
and more ambitious than a woman
having other colored hair. What
ever truth there may be in this, it
is a fact that redbaired women
have a strange fascination for
most men and red-headed old
maids are almost unknown.
