Seneca, and who has not visited his boy
hood lioiii j in Hf ty years, took a notion
on Juno 12th, 1001, that ho would wander
back to where his father's old house
used to stand. His father many yoars
ago owned what is now called tho
Major's placo and tho Nimrod T. Smith
placo and other lands adjoining. His
father lived and died on tho N. T. Smith
tract and now lies peacefully sleeping in
Old Lebanon (Baptist) comotory, about
tinco miles Kast of tho historic old town
of Pendleton.
Col. Boyd stopped at tho old church
yard on his way down. What a touching
scene as ho stood with bowed hoad and
toarful oyo, but could not, with any cer
tainty, locate bis fathor's gravo. Wo
imagino he brushed tho tears away and,

Ho journoyod on with bright anticipa

and I with plcasuic drove him ovor tho
old happy hunting grounds of "Auld

and other boys, long sinco crossed over
into tho Billah land, onco played leap

the hill by tho spring-oh yes, that was
familiar, and the spring itself under that
hill- -oh, yes, that was familiar, too, for
tho water still goes gushing and rushing
on as of old, until it reaches tho father

just as our lives, if wo go rushing on in
as much purity, and wo afford tho cup
of com water, wo shan soon bo inst
tho vastness of an otornity of joy, bliss
and lovo.
Wo soon carno back to tho old rosi

Mclaurin Out ol tho Raco for the Senate by
a Now Party Oath.
Columbia, Juno 17.-Senator Tillman's
friends think he has quietly fixed the
jard s for Senator MoLaurin to draw a
blank next summer without even having
i chante to win.
Instead of ruling MoLaurin out of the
!>arty, a method that would raino a
rumpus in tho State, and might oauso
serious trouble, the junior Senator is to
l)o mudo to rule himself out.
Tillman was opposed to the exeoutlvo
somtnitteo ruling out MoLaurin, on tho
ground that lt would give him an advant
age before the peoplo.
Ho could dcolaro hlmsoif a Domoorat
md say Tillman wai afraid to let tho
pooplo hoar h yu ; afraid to allow thom
bo bo tho judgo. It has, thoroforo, boon
planuod to lot tho convention, that meets
noxt May to organizo party machinery,
niako a now primary oath that oan bo
takou by all tho candidates oxoopt Mo
Laurin. This oath, heretofore, has boon
loslgnod to oovor tho S ta to mattors only,
tho candidato plodging himself to abido
tho result of a primary and support the
low ones. For MoLauriu's bonoflt lt
will bo amended so as to pledge tho sup
port of tho national Democratic platform
in all its planks, acknowledging tho
platform ns tho mouthpiece of tho party
md pledging also to abido by ino caucus
MoLaurin having doolared so strongly
.Kainat both those. Tillman supporters
loolaro bo cannot take tho oath, and
unless ho does ho cannot participate in
tho primary or bo voted for oxcopt at a
gonoral election. Tho plau loakod out
\ftor Sonator Tillman and Col. Wilio
Iones, chairman of the State Kxocutivo
?ommittoo, spout a couple of days to
MoLauriu's course, under these cir
cumstances, has not yot boon defined, but
t is already takon by ins friends as ovi
lonco that tho organization is afraid of
MoLauriu's strength.
Governor M. li. McSwoouoy was asked
;o-day whether ho indorsod tlds scheme
>f ruling out MoLaurin. Ho would not
?emmit himself, saying thal ho was not
i member of tho committee and did not
:nro to got tangled up in tho matter. Ho
ifould say, howovor, that unless a man
would stand by tho platform and bo
;ovei ned by a caucus, bo could not claim

State Chairman Jones said ho did not
bink tho present Kxocutivo Committee
.vould tako any action about MoLaurin.

There has boon an unusual amount of I
sickness in our community, but most of

The rust has injured tho wheat orop

some of our county ofllcials, who seemed
to bo so fond of chicken and pio last |
summer, that another orop is on hand

Smith will furnish tho fish. And thou if
