Col. Robt. L. McCaughrin, and Geo.

Providence, R. I., at which place they
will consult well known mill engineers,

cities, to get subscriptions for the pur

in raising the amounit desiredl.
The amount already subscribed is
about $100,030. The farmers, who
should feel a deep interest in the en

know what the women were doing
and tying up the frazelled ends of the

returning husbands to wives, wives to
husbands, to homes in the country.
Some were drunk with joy, some with
whiskey. Of the latter I speak. I too
was full-full of joy, for I was elevated.
who would not be joyful under such
circumstances. I was high, up on a
horse's back, a sedate horse, a horse
upon whose head the snbws of many
winters had fallen, so many that it was
useless to attempt to figure his age.
He was for sale, aged horses are gen
erally for sale, and as a reputed man
of means, I had the refusal of him. I
did refuse him, and I would here state
that I don't want to possess old horses.
Some men think that I belong to the
society for the "prevention of cruelty
to animals," and hence bring their old
stagers to me, that I may give them
corn andfodderin theirdecliningyears.
I decline. It is a mi;4taken idea, too,
that I have oodles of money; it's a sin
to think so, as I have frequently to pay
more for an article than it is worth.
Its getting monotonous.
But I digress ; it was Saturday after
noon. I was riding, ambling along,
my favorite gait, it was favorable to the
horse too. I was dreaming that I "dwelt
in marble halls," when I found myself
on the banks of Scott's creek south fork,
the otherwise placid and limpid
waters of which now disturbed by the
rain which erst had fallen, rushed mad
ly within a few hundred yards of old
Blandoosan Spring. A wagon had roll
ed down to the water's edge, the horses
were in the water, the driver, colored,
sat picturesque upon one horse, it would
have been unwise to sit upon more than
one; in the rear was another wagon,
it also had horses in front, these were
not in the water, but wanted to be
there, they were thirsty; inside the
wagon were two white men reclining
upon the greasy bacon purchased in
town, seemingly oblivious of passing
events, they may have been drunk;
the third man, also white, was drunk,
indisputably so, drunk all over, his.
conversation was drunk. He yelled
ot to the darkey something which as
it whizzed by on the air, hissed and
izzled as if it had been hurled red hot,
rom the lower regions, it was aimed
at the darkey, but did not hit him. The
atter individual oalled out to his hor
:es, "whea-ah," which caught the
white man back of the head with a lyre
like sound, to which he repMed "you
tre (hic) another," and struggling thro'
the mud, he approached the darkey.
L torrent of red-hot, cuss words follow
d; the negro all the while saying, "go
iway, white man." Then the other
nade a pass at him with the butt end
f his whip, but the nerveless hand
nissed the mark, and the avhip went
whirling and surging down the stream.
t'he white man then affectionately
,rasped the darkey by the seat of so
nuch of his breeches as was from out
the saddle, and pleadingly invited him
lown into the wet-the former it may be
vell to state was all the while standing
aearly knee deep in water-the negro

mounted, then embraced the white

Thme Rev~. R. D. Smart on Saturday
iternoon was invited by Mr. Win.
Blats to cuter his shoe factory. With
mt hesitation and in the natural trust
~ulness of his natnre he complied, lit
e thinking of the consequence. Mr.
. then asked him to try on a pair of
oots-the Rev, gentleman hesitated,
t was an unusual request, the trying
n of new boots was not a pleasant
fair, but the hesitation lasted only
[or a minute. Mr. Smart is a very
accommodating gentleman, and has
ever been known to refuse a small re
uest. He did not pause to think of
ynamite or infernal machines, but
ulled on the boots: they fit. Mr
Blats then informed him that he had
been commissioned to make the boots
md present them to him-the donor's

tail and rode off rather too fast to suit
that mule's fancy. The rope broke ;
the wonder is that the tail did not
break. All the time that mule looked
as innocent as a prayer meeting; but
he didn't propose to be led in an un

Mr. T. P. A. an old gentleman-of
Mollohon, made a trip to town this

muddy impressions. A short time

into a deep mud hole, threw L. D's.
new overcoat out and ran over it,
completely changing the color, and
leaving very decided mud tints. In
trying to pull the wagon upon Ken
nerly's bridge, his mules fell-the
bridge being very much in need of re
construction. His judgment is that
the County Commissioners would do
well to look after this bridge if they
