yielded to the potent liquor, and after reelini
to and fro, each in his chair, for sometime
their heads came in contact with sue
violence, that Sapperlot was tumbled back
upon the floor. Mr. Koselhants then, witt
the. perseverance characteristic of the 6er
man, arose from his seat at the twelfth at.
tempt, and, going to the loom which stood
at the far end of the apartment, he drew ofi
his coat and shoes and threw himself as ht
thought into his bed,-but, alas!i he fell dowt
among the loom-treadles with a crash. The
wizard gunsaith had put a spell upon his
guests, and upon himself which was beyond
his control.
Dame Koselhantz and her daughter aros<

adragged from under the loom, and was

brought into requisition after an antiquated
rule, as expressed by Aberhart, "dat de hain

at table with a hot breakfast before them.
When they arose, refreshed by the substan

with the daintiest of viands. Tbc lieutenant
shook hands heartily with his host, and

It as a cold night in February, a few
weeks after the events just narrated. Tbe
ground was covered with snow, and the sleet
was beating a chilling tattoo against the
house. The Koselhantz family were sitting
before the fire. The little flax-spinning
wheel was humming and buzzing under
Betsy's PEDipulations; the knltting needles
were keeping up a brisk fencing-match
through the MAxipulations of Mrs. Kosel
hants; and Aberhart, under compulsion to
repair the disasters of misconduct, was mak
ing a new pair of loom-treadles. Suddenly
they all heard a sound, as of some heavy
body falling against the door. This was fol
lowed byv a groan. Mr. Koselhantz snatched
up a torch and ran to the door. Upon open.
lng it, a man, with his head bandaged and
his clothes stiff with frozen blood, fell for
wards upon the floor. He was dragged to
the fhre-place, and soon became sc fir rester
ed, that he could sit upon a chair. The
bandage was unwrapped from his head.
"Oh, mercy! it's Towsend Sapperlot!"
screamed Betsy.

"Yesh, It pe Towsend Sapperlot," said
the wounded soldier, "it ge Towser.d Sap

The 'valiant corporal then favored his
hearers with the particulars of the battle of
-the Cowpens. in which, according to his own
account, he had figured conspicuously.
There was, however, found, upon examina
tion, the hrnised print of a horse-shoe
between his shoulder-blades, which rather
went to show, that although he lay upon the
battle-field with his "feet to the foe," htis
back must have been towards the sky, in.
-stead of to the ground. A body of cavalry
had charged over him. He narrowly escaped
ith his life. He was put into a cart and
conducted from the field. He had his

was. He hoped his old friend and coun try

In two weeks the corporal was as sound as
a dollar; and that very spring, (need I say
it.?) was married to Betsy Koselhantz.
There was this little peculiarity about the
marriage: instead of Betsy's taking the
name of her husband, Tows.end Sapperlot,
-wher by command of his father-iu-law
- hodesired to perpetuate his own name, or
for fear of being discovered and shot as a
deserter,-assumed the name of Koselhantz;

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 1883. t]
The Herald is in thehighestrespect aFam- tl
Uy Newspea r, devoted to the material in- d
terests of the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an o
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms. see first page. e
One man walks to get an appe- h
tite for his dinner, while another a
walks even more industriously to get 'I
a dinner for his appetite; one finds s
it hard to decide how his food shall f
be cooked, so as'to be most tempt- D
ing, while the other discusses the tl
possibility of keeping body and b
soul together. while he is "scuffling
around "to get something to be cook- t
ed. There is no doubt that we de
vote too little attention to the O
science of cookery; or that indiges- S
tion, caused by badly cooked food, n
is a serious trouble; or that the
average cook is a thing that sensi- t
ble "civilized man can live with- tl
out." But we cannot deny that c
the question, How shall we cook? 0
follows the more important ques- a
tion, What shall we cook? We h
are great eaters, there can be but S
one opinion on that point; but it t
is unfortunately true, that we stuff b
with pork and other indigestibles
that should seldom find their way to
the table, or even to the kitchen, at ,
this season of the year. Men who :
are independent so far as money is s
concerned, eat what they can get, t,
without looking beyond the mar- b
ket that first offers, and, consequent- c
ly, often eat what would put an al- 1
ligator's powers of digestion to a
severe test. Those who eat should a
control the food markets. If we can d
get better meat from the country a
than our market furnishes, then, in e
the name of good digestion, let the a
countryman sell his produce free of a
tariff; in this respect, give us free b
trade. t
The new interest that is develop- 14
ing in dairy farming and cattle
farming in our State, should cause h
a thrill of pleasure in every manp
who has an appetite, and much si
more in every poor fellow who has a
exchanged appetite and digestion S
for bad food and chronic dyspep- 8
sia. Money-getting may be the d
object of'those who are the movers h
of these enterprises, but they will a
furnish rich milk and butter, and o
good beef, and to that extent will ta
benefit the eating public. n
But we cannot help expressing 3
tlie regret, that ogr sheep are so a
much neglected, and that some en- n,
terprising spirit has not begun a
sheep farming in our county. No
domestic animal is less expensive
than the sheep, and none furnishes ~
more wholesome and nutritious e
food-besides, its fleece is valuable- b~
At this season of the year, there is a
always an open market for good (
mutton, which unfortunately is
scarce. It really ,seems that the j
day is coming when we shall speak r
of the juicy mutton chop as a e
thing with which our ancestors re
was younger but wiser. We trust tv
that this will not be the case, but e
that some of our people will soon s
ad1d sheep raising to the many
other new enterprises.
The Chappell's correspondent of t
the News adCuersays:F
"It has been rumored through
this County that a great talk has e
been made about petitioning the "
authorities of the Columbia and s
Greenville Railroad to allow Chap- ~
pells Depot to be removed from its e
present site to a situation two miles
farther down the road, to a place
now known as Coleman's Mill.
Such a removal would prove very -p
detsimental to many liberal patrons ~
and citizens residing in both New
berry and Laurens Counties. It isa
said by a great many citizens resid- e
ing here that, if such a change isd
made, they will carry all their. cot
ton to Greenwood and ship to
Augusta by the Augusta and Knox- ol
ville Railroad. The position they C
take about the rumored removal is e
that Coleman's Mill is a very out- re
of-the-way place, and in some places ra
that the- roads are impassable. A
large petition has been signed by
the citizens of this County and sent til
in to the Greenville and Columbia ai
Railroad authorities, and it is hoped Si
that no such removal will be allowed. VW

icted of breach of trust with
audulent intent. He was also
liarged with larceny. The robbery
at of which the charges grew, was
mmitted some time ago, and Shir
r's story was i hen about as follows :
Ddr. Shirer, a clerk in Ihe office
r Messrs. Bank & Smiba, rice mil
rs, of this place, left the office on
ie afternoon of the 19th of June
ust, after counting. the cash, and
cked the doors of the office. The
ext morning, between 3 and 4
clock, a citizen hearing cries
)r help went out from his house on
.melia street and found the defend
nt lying on his back tied by the
eck to the back steps of the Melli
amp school house and with his
ands tied behind his back. Being
,scued from his uncomfortable
osition, Mr. Shirer told the gen
eman wio relieved him that at 2
clock that night a man came to
is gate, woke him up and told him
iat there was a young -man at the
epot sick who wanted to see him at
ace. Suspecting nothing he dress
d and went out. When he had
one a short way from home, two
ien jumped out from behind a tree,

im through back streets to the rear
f the Mellicamp school house.
'here they threw him down and

)rced him to divulge the combina
on to the safe in the office of
[essrs. Ranks & Smith, and to give
1em the keys to the office door and

afe. One of the men having taken

ries for help which brought friends

alled, and it was found that the
ffice door was opei and that the
afe had been opened and robbed

Shirer himself as the guilty party,

Tote a letter in which he informed
ie public that he intends to
tudy the road problem. The let
r contained no new suggestions,
ut it was copied throughout the
tate, merely because Senator But.
3r wrote it. This shows two
bings. One is, that the people do
ot feel able to grapple with this
ifficult and important question;
nd the other, that they need lead
rship of the right kind, and that
ny man in whom the elements
re rightly mixed, and who has the
rain, can command the implicit
-ust of our people. Senator But
~r must look to his laurels, for the
eople are waiting patiently to
ear him speak his solution of the
roblem, and because numerous
3ribes have rushed into print, who
hay settle the question before the
enator can get his grip on it.
enator Butler has staked a good
eal in publicly announcing that
e will study this subject; and, as
e do not wish to anticipate him,
e- to detract one whit from his repu.
tion, we will not dispose of the
iatter while he is pondering it.
