The friction or disagreement that
exists between the chief executive and
the supreme court, rather Chief Jus
tice Jones, has brought about a very
deplorable situation in South Carolina.
There are twenty prisoners in jail at
Horry, with a number of other case3
to be disposed ol", and no judge has
been provided for holding court. Cer
tainly some way should be found out of
the embarrassing as well as demoral
izing situation. .
"Scientists have searched diligently
for the cause of pellagra, but up to
this time their efforts have been unre

the real cause of this ?disease which is

walls of fame. Many things seem to
point to corn and grain as the reaj
cause, yet no one has been able to as
sert positively that such diet produces
the disease.

Recently a Georgia farmer who had
some fine hogs in which he took specifd
pride carried a visiting friend out to
view the herd. Ir. order to arouse the
choicest pig, which was asleep, he gave
it a kick in the side, resulting in an
explosion. The pig was blown into
smithereens, the two men injured and
a portion of the building torn down.
Upon investigation it was found that
the pig had swallowed some dynamite,
stored in the shed in the lot. We do
not vouch for this statement, but sug
gest this moral: It never pays to be
a kicker.

Mrs. Elizabeth Adams Cele
brates Her 71st Birthday.
It was the delightful privilege of
the writer to be one of a party of
ladies who were invited to dine on
last Wednesday with Mrs. E. E.
Adams, that being her birthday. I
had almost spoken of the guests as
old ladies, but withhold the adject
ive, for we all felt as though we had
imbibed freely of the fountain of
perpetual youth, and a passer by
would have thought from the hilar
ious sounds proceeding from the
residence that "Mr. and Mrs. Mims
were having a gay party for their
young daughter."
The guests began to arrive at
noon and came by twos, threes and
fours, soon making a large and hap
py assembly. Af ter inspecting and ad
miring the numerous and beautiful
gifts bestowed with esteem and
affection on Mrs. Adams we repair- .
ed to the parlor where there was
"pleasure unconfined." Formality
was banished and each looked on
the others as genuine friends.
Some ?f the ladies were old time
school mates, and? reminiscences of
school life were recalled, son
amusing, some pathetic. As our fin
gers were not quite stiff from age
and our recollection of music quite
fresh, we were requested to p'nv - ;.?
L , e old melodies familiar to
ali. The writer bein sr the first to
respond gave as an appropriate se
lection "Auld Lang Syne." Follow
ing this, our hearts being full of
thought and love of our? absent
brother Dr. C. E. Burts, we played
and sang "Way down upon the
Swanee river;" wishing as we were
singing that we might have him
back "here to live and die." One of
our party who has in her home an
elegant new parlor grand piano play
ed with such skill and vivacity that
I was carried back in memory to
the days when she and I were to
gether at school under the instruc
tion of the lovely and accomplished
Msi8 Nicolis. Others of our party
kindly contributed to this part of
the program after which we again
engaged in pleasant and profitable
Ere long our genial host whose
kind face always brings sunshine,
entered with his lovely wife and an
nounced dinner. Arriving at the
dining room door our host being a
prudent man and knowing that
"prudence is the better part of
valor," and knowing also full well
that one man's voice would be as
nothing in the midst of twenty fe
male voices, wisey retired to distant
regions where he could enjoy his
dinner "far from the madding
crowd." My pen stops when I reach
the subject of the dinner. It is fee
ble when I attempt a detailed ac
count. Suffice it to say the richness,
variety and abundance would have
more than delighted Epicurus at the
beginning but would haye rendered
him very uncomfortable at the
close of the feast.
After doing full justice to this
magnificent spread we repaired
again to the parlor feeling not quite
so sprightly as before visiting the
dining room. We roused our energies
sufficiently boweverto walkout to a
temporary stage or rostrum erected
by our host for the purpose of hold
ing the party to be "taken" by the
photographer. After much posing,
arranging of ribbons and counte
nances we were taken and with a
sigh of relief we returned to the
house, conscious that we had never
spent a pleasanter day and hoping
that Mrs. Adams would have many
more birthdays with the same gor
geous dinner and an invitation to
us all to come.
Before closing I must relate a lit
tle incident that caused some alarm
(unnecessary however) to one or
more of the guests. A kind hearted
Christian gentleman, one full of
good deed sent his splendid horse
(the milk white steed with blue eyes
and brown spot on neck, perhaps
ray readers have seen him) to con
vey some of the ladies to the feast.
Now this grand horse behaves gen
erally with great dignity and did so
on this particular morning until he
reached Main street when he sud
denly seemed to become conscious
that he was taking part in griing
pleasure to the ladies. He manifest
ed his delight r>y standing erect on
his hind feet and indulging in what
dancing people call the "two step."
This equine gayety so alarmed'the
occupants of the carriage that they
flew out like butter flies and could
scarcely be convinced that the beau
tiful horse meant no harm but only
desired to show how glad he was
to be able to help in the
days pleasure. The ladies were after
much persuasion induced to re-enter
the carriage and arrived safely at
their destination.
The guests on this delightful oc
casion were Mrs. Camilla Blalock,
Mrs. Pamella Holland, Mrs. Mis
souri Lott, Mrs. Sarah Collett, Mrs.

physicians in the country. I found
myself a nervous wreck. My appe
