OLD TIMES IN MEDFORD.
The world is growing better, said
Eli Perkins. Who ever heard of a
man talking temperance a 100 years
ago. My great-grandfather was a
Baptist minister in Medford, Mass.,
then, and it is one of the family records
that be once received seven barrels
of Medford rum for preaching the
gospel a year.
You ask me how he realized on it?
Why, he used to peddle it out to
the congregation. 1 can remernoer
well how my grandmother said her
good old white-haired father used to
call and pray with the brethren, and
then beg them to take a few gallons of
rum to help the Lord's cause.
Now Medford is a temperance town,
and a Christian clergyman not a teetotaler
would be ostracised.
Speaking of these old times in Medford
one day, my grandmother said :
"Yes, they were simple times. The
church service was simple. There
were no candles and fiddles and organs
in the churches then?no boys
dressed up in nightgowns, and not ritualistic
service set to music by the
middle fiddler of a German band. We
didn't have long courtships in those
days; and such a thing as flirtation
was never known."
"Did I ever tell you how simply
grandfather came to marry me ?" asked
"No; how was it?" I asked.
"Well, I was a sitting one evening,
after spinning all day, and a listening
to the old clock tick?tack?tick?
tack?when I heard some one at the
gate. I opened the door, and there
sat Marvin Brewster on his horse with
a sheepskin for a saddle.
" 'Betty, is that you ?' he asked,
" 'Yes, Marvin.'
" 'Well, Betty,' he said, 'the Lord
has sent me all the way from Medford
to marry you.'
" 'The Lord's will be done !' I said.
And it was.
"They do things differently now,"
said grandmother, with a sigh.
"How ?" I asked.
"Well, that worldly Deacon Jen1?

rode over to Widow Modsod's farm in
a yellow buggy yesterday, hustled into
the bouse right in the middle of dinner,
and gasped :
" 'Widder JenkiDS, I'm a man of
business. I am worth $10,800, and
want you for a wife. I give you just
three minutes to answer.'
" 'I don't want 10 seconds, old man,'
she replied, as she shook out the dish
cloth. 'I'm a woman of business,
worth $16,000, and I wouldn't marry
you if you were the last man on earth !
I give you four seconds to git!'
"I call that flirting," said grandmother,
as she wiped her glasses with
a red bandanna handkerchief.

Not the Last Call.?A literary
man who was on the verge of bringing
out a book at the Pitt Press ordered
his proofs to be sent to him at a house
where he was engaged to dine out, intending
to look them over in the halfhour
after dinner. The printer's boy,
however, was late in bringing them,
and the gentleman had already joined
the ladies in the drawing room when
the company were electrified by hearing
the sonorous voice of the butler
announcing : "The devil from the
Pitt has come for Mr. Joues."
BaT" An exchange says that an editor
once applied to the door of Hades for
admission. "Well," replied his sable
majesty, "we let one of your profession
in here many years ago, and he kept
up a continual row with his former
delinquent subscribers; and, as we
have more of that class of persons
than any other, we have passed a law
prohibiting the admission of editors."
Repairs Wanted.?After a recent
railway collision a Scotsman was extricated
from the wreckage by a companion
who had escaped unhurt.
"Never mind, Sandy," his rescuer remarked,
"it's nothing serious, and you
will get damages for it." "Damages!"
roared Sandy. "Hue I no' had enough ?
Guid sakes, it's repairs I'm seekin'
jJfiF" "An now," said the editor, "let
us be thankful for one day of rest and
get ready for church."
"Yes," said his wife, "run out and
chop some wood, and milk the cows,
and light the fire, and make the coffee,
and wash the children, while I bang
THAT ANONYMOUS LETTER.
Concerning the Kluwing Up of the Maine.
Washington, March 29.?An interesting
feature of the published report
of the Maine testimony, issued from
the government printing office today,
was the famous anonymous letter mentioned
in the evidence of Henry Drain,
the clerk of the American consulate at
Havana. The letter was received by
General Lee a few days after the Maine
disaster. It is dated February 18th,
1898, and signed "An Admirer."
It is in Spanish, written apparently
by a fairly well educated person. The
certified translation is as follows:
"It should be remembered that at
dawn of the day of the terrible catastrophe
an individual was killed in a
small boat together with another who
was found wounded and a prisoner.
They were going ahout the cruisers
Maine and Alfonso XII, and as the
said individuals are of the worst antecedents
as harbor thieves, I have interested
myself in investigating what connection
this occurrence could have had
with the explosion of the Maine, and I
have discovered that those two men,
together with another, who is called
Pepe Taco, had bought in a hardware
store in Mercaderes street, called La
Marina, a hose such as is used by
divers, and that the three left Regla
in a small boat, which they placed under
the wharves of Santa Catalina, and
they were loitering about more than
an hour and a half, while Pepe Taco,
who is a corker and a diver, probably
the best in these parts, did the work
to bring about the explosion of the
Maine. With the data I went to
Regla and discovered that the family
of the dead man, who lived in the
utmost misery in a bouse in Rodriguez
Batista street, had moved to a wellfurnished
one on Gelbert street. There
I iearned that they had agreed with
some merchants of Muralla street for
the work of blowing up the ship for
the sum of $6,000?$2,000 in advance
and the other $4,000 after seeing the
result. But as they did not come out

been attacked when they were retiring,
the result of which was the death of
one, who left his teeth in the boat, and
another one wounded, the third one
has not presented himself to collect
the rest of the money, and it could be
probably secretly done, that by paying
him the rest that the others will not
now pay him, he would declare the
truth of all this. The one whom I
called the third is the diver, Pepe
Taco, who is unwounded, who is no
doubt afraid to present himself to
collect the rest. In Muralla street,
they tell me, was the place where the
business was arranged with Messrs.
Garcia Corujedo, Villasuso, Maribona,
and whom else I do not remember.

Drain, the consular clerk, stated in
his evidence that an effort was made
to ascertain the authenticity of this
letter, although the consulate was
handicapped, having no secret fund.
Witness discovered, however, that the
name Pepe Taco must have been a
mistake, as the man mentioned had
died a few days before the explosion
took place. Witness thought the name
should have been Pepe Barquin, who
had died a couple of days after the

"FIGHTING BUB" EVANS.
The Officer Who Is to Command the Iowa,
the Finest Ship In the Navy.
Washington Dispatch, March 27.
Captain Robley D. Evans, who has
been assigned to command the battleship
Iowa, the finest ship of the navy,
once tendered his resignation from the
service, and it was accepted by Gideon
Welles, then secretary of the navy.
Captain Evans is down in the naval
register as having been appointed from
Utah, hut he was from Virginia. His
present home is a little frame cottage,
just at the foot of the big lighthouse
marking the entrance through Hampton
Roads to Old Point. There his
family have lived for years, while the
man, who is known by the sobriquet of
"Fighting Bob," was away on sea duty.
In June, 1861, "Fighting Bob" was
a midship nan at the Naval Academy.
His sympathies were supposed to have
been with the south. He, with a number
of other midshipmen, including
Captain Yates Stirling, now on waiting
orders, sent in their resignations to the
naval department, but four weeks afterward
relented and each wrote let
ters full of devotion for the Union,
which brought about their restoration
to the navy. Captain Evans has a
cripple knee as a result of the storming
of Fort Fisher, which, however,
does not interfere with his activity.
He is one of the youngest captains of
the navy and a brother-in-law of
Captain Taylor, of the Indiana. He
never misses a prize fight if he can
help it, and is an all-around sportsman.
For four years be was the companion
of Mr. Cleveland on his guuning

gunboat Marietta, which have heen
, ordered to the North Atlantic coast to
re-enforce Captain W. T. Sampson's

she had been anchored for sometime

occurred a fight or fracas in which
Henry Howard, a white man who
worked at Jackson's saw mill, was
right badly used up by blows over the
head with a gun iu the hands of Frauk
Turner, also white. It seems that all
the participants are trying to keep the
matter a secret and hence we have

with a gun by Frank Turner. Turner
then was about to continue his assault

Public Schools Cannot Charge Pupils Incidental
Columbia State, Saturday.
It appears to have been customary
for sometime for the public schools of
the state to charge a small incidental
fee of 10 cents a month, or $1 a year.
Frequently the patrons complain that
this is a perversiou of the public school
law and that the trustees have no right
to impose this fee, as a public school
snouta oe tree in met as wen as iu
The state superintendent of education
recently received a letter from the
superintendent of the Laurens graded
school, in which it was stated that
some of the patrons of the school have
refused to pay this incidental fee.
Mr. Mayfield forthwith submitted
the matter to Attorney General Barber,
who has expressed himself as of
the opinion that public schools have
no right to impose such incidental fees. '
The letter from Mr. Barber reads as
Dear Sir?Your reference to this office
of the letter of Professor J. B.
Watkins, superintendent of the Laurens
graded schools, has my attention.
I note his statement that the trustees
of bis school charge $1 per session for
incidental expenses and that a few of
the patrons refuse to pay this fee. His
inquiry is, "Whether or not the trustees
have a right to stop children from
school if their parents refuse to pay
the fee ?"
In the school law of the state there
is no authority for the trustees of any *
public school charging such incidental
fee, and the charge is, therefore, illegal.
I am, therefore, of the opinion that the
trustees cannot discbarge from the
school children whose parents refuse
payment. Yours very truly,
William A. Barber,
