PATRON SAINT OF THE LAWYERS. "Did you know," asked the lawyer, "that the legal profession is the only profession that has no patron saint? at least none that it will own ?" "What's the reason for that ?" I asked. "I don't know," answered the lawyer. "Carelessness, I suppose. When the saints were handed around the representative who should have been present was probably arguing with the judge in anotner couri r" "What did you mean by 'At least none that it will own ?' " I asked. "Many years ago," was the reply, "an Irish lawyer who was a fervent Catholic sought to provide his profession with a patron saint. So genuine was his desire for one that he traveled to Rome to consult the pope. The pope graciously received him. " 'Pray, your Holiness,' said the Irishman, 'grant the lawyers a patron saint.' " "According to the story, which is a very venerable one, the pope looked over the list and found there were no saints that had not been given to the other professions, at which the Irish lawyer was much cast down. Observing his depression, the pope bade him cheer up, and then directed him to go to a church near by, to blindfold himself and to pass around the interior saying Ava Marias all the time. " 'And,' said the pope, 'the first saint you touch shall be the patron saint of your profession.' "Much gratified, the devout lawyer went away to follow the instructions. He passed around the church praying. When he stopped he put out his hand. He was in front of the altar of St. Michael. " 'Be thou the lawyers' patron saint,' he cried, and pulled off the bandage. Alas, he wasn't touching St. Michael at all. His hand was resting on the devil under St. Michel's feet." The Careless Creatures.?He came home last night a bit tired from a busy day's work and his wife waited until he had got off his overcoat and sat down. "Did you get that piece of silk I asked you to bring up tonight ?" she inquired, seeing that he had not laid it before her> "Yes, dear ; I left it out there in the hall ?" "Did you get the pins?" "Yes, dear." "And the ribbon ?" "Yes." "And Bobbie's shoes ?" "Yes." "And a wisp broom ?" "Yes." "And a wick for the kitchen lamp ?" "Yes." "And some matches?" "Yes; tliey are with the other bunbles." "And did you see the man about the ooal?" "Yes; it will be up Monday." "Did you see Mrs. Smith about the sewing society meeting ?" "She said she'd come." "And?and?oh, yes, did you get a new shovel for the kitchen stove?" "N?n?no," he hesitated ; "I forgot it." "Good gracious!" she exclaimed. "What did you do that for? You knew we needed that shovel and I told you about it the very first thing when you went down town this morning. I do think that you men are the most forgetful and carelessest creatures that ever lived." And she flopped out to see about supper. Pap Wasn't In It.?"How many cows does your father milk?" asked a man of a boy that sat on a fence near a Missouri homestead. "Dou't milk none," the boy answered. "I'm sorry to hear it, for I'm about to start a cheese factory in this neighborhood, and I want to know how much milk I can depend on. So your father don't milk any ?" "No, pap don't." "Well, how many cows has your father?*' "He ain't got noue, pap hain't." "Well, I declare, and yet he seems to be very well fixed." "Yas, I reckon he is well fixed." "Why don't he buy some cows?" "Don't need 'em, I reckon." "But don't your mother like milk ?" "Oh, yes, mighty fond of it." "And don't you ?" "Yas, powerful." "And yet you do without it just because your father doesn't happen to like it." "No, don't do without it. Drink a allfired sight of it." "Oh, you buy it, I suppose." "No, we milk it." "Thought you said that your father had no cows." "I did. Pap's been dead a year or more, and blamed if I can see what he wants with a cow. If you had asked me how many cows mam had I could a-told you." Slightly Embarrassed Him.?A good story is told on a certain minister not a thousand miles from here. He made a call recently at a home which had not long before been blessed by the arrival of a new baby. He was met at the door by the lady of the house, and after the usual salutation, asked after the baby's health. The lady, who was a little hard of hearing and suffering with the grip, did not quite understand liim, and thinking he was asking about her cold, answered that although she usually had one every winter, this was the worst one she had ever had ; it kept her awake nights a good deal, and at first confined her to her bed. Then, noticing that her visitor was getting nervous, she said that she could tell by his looks that he was going to have one just like hers, and asked him to go in and sit down.?Henderson Gold Leaf. pi-srrttancows parting. IN DEFENSE OF SAMPSON. Secretary of the Navy Makes a Public Reply to an Attack. The secretary of the navy has received several letters violently attacking Admiral Sampson. In reply to one of them, the secretary says in part: Navy Department, Washington, D. C., August 5, 1896. My Dear Sir?I am in receipt of your letter, and hasten to assure you that what you say about Admiral o?in e/v nnincf that it, can onlv onuipouu 10 ovr uujuwv vumv ? ? J be pardoned on the ground of your ignorance of the whole matter. I Admiral Sampson was selected for the command of the North Atlantic squadron because the department, in the exercise of its best judgment, with an eye single to the public interest, believed that he was especially fitted for the place. The first movement on Porto Rico was not a movement for its capture. Our movement to Porto Rico thus became a reconnoisance, and fulfilled its purpose. There was no intention at this time of taking Porto Rico, as the army was not then ready to cooperate. With regard to sending our ships into the harbor of Santiago, Admiral Sampson was acting under the explicit orders of the department not to expose his armored ships to the risk of sinking by mines, and the wisdom of this course is, I believe, universally acknowledged by naval authorities. He waited, as he should have done, the co-operation of the army. How effectually, under this cooperation, the result was accomplished, is now a mat ter of history. I can well understand why the friends of other officers would be so enthusiastic and earnest?as I am?in giving them the credit they so richly? every one of them?deserve for their glorious work. I cannot conceive of anybody so mean as to retract by a single hair from their merit. But I cannot understand, why such a bitter feeling is manifested in many quarters towards Admiral Sampson, when all these officers, subordinate to him, in their reports clearly and cordially recognize the fact, although at the beginning he was, by orders from Washington, going to confer with General Shafter, yet the battle was fought under his orders, and that the victory was the consummation of his thorough preparation. For myself, I know no predilection for any one of these gallant men. I would crown every one of them with laurel. I want them all to have their just deserts. Everyone of them deserves unstinted praise; not one of them deserves anything less than full measure for that day's work, And, therefore, I can think of nothing more cruel than a depreciation of the merit of the faithful, patriotic commander-in-chief, physically frail, worn with sleepless vigilance, weighed with measureless responsibilities and details, letting no duty go undone. Sugar Made Out of Milk,?A dispatch to The Globe-Democrat irom Marengo, 111., says : Illinois is now producing sugar from milk. The great dairy district of the "Fox River Valley has another and novel method of disposing of its product. A queer-looking factory is in operation in Marengo. A barbed-wire fence is stretched around it, so that the overcurious are kept at a distance. The owner is F. W. Patrick, who owns a large number of creameries throughout the valley. The secret of refining the sugar is well kept and seems to be in the possession of the one man about the premises. The cream is separated from the milk upon being brought to the factory, the former being churned into butter. The skimmed product is curdled and then dried, after which it is ground as fine as corn meal and shipped away to the east, where it is converted into a liquid and used for glazing purposes. The whey left from the curd is the substance from which sugar is produced. It is boiled down to a syrup and reboiled until sugar of a dark brown color is formed. It is then trucked to the refinery, where it is sent through the secret process, after which it is as fine and light as any of the granulated grades purchased in the stores. Milk sugar is not destined to compete with the product of the beet, because the former is intended only for mediciual purposes and sells for something like 50 cents a pound. The industry is in infancy and it is not known ife mnnnfapf nrp will at picscut nuav no ..... lead to. IN COUNTIES ADJOINING. Summary of the Hews That In Being Published by Exchanges. CHESTER?The Lantern, August 9 : Miss Janie McNinch, daughter of Mr. I. J. McNinch, died Sabbath morning, after an illness of 15 months, aged about 21 years. Funeral service was conducted at the Baptist church by Rev. H. C. Buckholz, the pastor, and the remains were buried in Evergreen cemetery. Mi6s Sue Mcllroy is visiting relatives in Yorkville. Miss Mary Corkill, who has been spending several weeks with friends at Albemarle, N. C., returned to the city yesterday. Cards are out announcing the marriage of Mr. Sam A. Hood, of Chester, and Miss Pearl Hudson, of Waxhaw, N. C., on August 17th. Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Brown, returned last night from their trip to the mountains. Mrs. Gl&dden and children, of Grover, N. C., came with them. Miss Fannie Abell, of Lowrysville, returned yesterday afternoon from a visit to Eastover, Richland county. Her friend, Miss Mel Kamena, came home with her. Mr. Jno. T. McCrorey brought us the first open boll of cotton we have seen. It is well developed and fully open. It is of the Early King variety. Mr. McCrorey says it | is opening considerably; there was another open boll on the stalk this one was taken from. Miss Ada Corkill, who has been visiting in Rock Hill and vicinity, is expected home today. Miss Mamie Hull and little sister, of Rock Hill, are coming down today to visit friends. LANCASTER?Ledger, August 10: Miss Bessie Threat, daughter of Mr. A. L. Threat, died at her father's home at the cotton mill on last Sunday morning, after an illness of three weeks of typhoid fever. She was about 22 years of age. Her remains were taken to White Plains, Chesterfield county, Mr. Threat's former home, for interment. Mr. W. B. Cauthen has awarded a contract to J. L. Price for the erection of a two-story residence ami tVi nf TYfr W. Uf. Moore's on the Camden road. New announcements in this issue: W. C. Hough, Esq., for the senate; J. M. Knight for magistrate in Buford township ; C. F. Tillman for magistrate in Cedar Creek township. T. M. Fitzpatrick, J. P. Flynn and George Grimes, of this county, have been drawn as grand jurors for the February term of the United States district court which convenes at Greenville. The communion at Gills Creek A. R. P. church has been postponed to the fourth Sabbath in August. Review, August 10 : Some of Lancaster's merchants have a custom of dealing with petty thieves that is all wrong. A party caught stealing from a store is made to pay a sum of money and then dismissed. It is true that one prominent firm devotes all money thus collected to charitable purposes, for which it is to be commended, of course ; but the exaction of a money consideration under such circumstances, instead of turning the offender over to the officers of the law, is not right in principle. The practice is contrary to law and detrimental to public morals. The place for thieves , is on the chaingang. Paying money for their devilment is no punishment to them. Mr. J. J. Copeland, who has been spending a couple of weeks at bis old home in the Primus section, passed through Lancaster Saturday on his way to his distant home in Indian Territory, where he has been living for the past eight years. He was accompanied by his mother, the widow of the late J. T. Copeland, who will niraUr molro Uor future home with her uatij uiuuv uvt ? sod. A protracted meeting is going on at Fort Lawn this week. Rev. M. I B. Gordon is assisted by Rev. J. W. Little. A similar meeting will start at El Bethel the third Sunday in August. Messrs. Willie J. Hindman and Lonnie Hutchison are spending the week in York county. They attended the Alliance campmeeting at Tirzah the 4th and 5th. A rattlesnake in a box attracted considerable attention on Main street yesterday. It is supposed to be a part of Mayor Floyd's menagerie. Wylie's Mill, Landsford and Fort Lawn Democratic clubs have selected El Bethel church as the place to have the county campaign picnic on Saturday, August 13, instead of Fudge's Store, as announced heretofore. Everybody is cordially invited to come with well-filled baskets. Candidates are expected to be present. CHEROKEE?Gaffiney Ledger, August 11: Miss Mary Hart, a popular and accomplished youDg society lady of Yorkville, spent several days in the city this week visiting Miss Fannie Jones, on Limestone street. Mrs. James B. Bell and children, returned Monday from Yorkville, where they have been on an extended visit to rel- 1 atives. A protracted meeting will begin at Wilson's Chapel, Monday , night August 15th., and continue until anrl inr.lndinff the following Sunday. Rev. S. T. Creech will conduct the meeting. Mr. John Pennington, of Cherokee Falls, is a one-arm farmer of this county. He is an example of what can be done when there is a will to do it. He does his own ploughing, and, with one mule, the indications are that he will make 400 bushels of corn. He raises no cotton, but instead has nine shoats which will be ready for killing about Christmas. There are the Vinesett boys, John and Joe, both successful one-arm farmers who make things lively for their more fortunate brethren. Then again there is Eugene Sarratt, also a successful onearmed farmer. All of these men are hardworking, industrious citizens who have had the misfortune to lose an arm on the field of battle which is constantly being waged ; but they are citizens of which any county should be proud. A general picnic will be given at Cherokee Park one week from tomorrow. It is proposed to invite the candidates for county offices to be present and make speeches. The Gatfney orchestra will be on hand to furnish music for the dancers. | GASTON?Gastonia Gazette, August 11: Week before last, the death of Mrs. Ed Bell was noted in our Lowell letter. She was a daughter of Mr. William Jenkins. Another daugh- ' ter, Miss Isadore, died of typhoid fever j last Monday. Mr. Jenkins himself and j two more of his daughters are ex- j tremely ill with the same disease, and j were too ill Mouday to attend the j funeral. Truly, this is a sorely afflict- j ed family.

It is estimated that Dearly 1,200 ] people were present, and as to the j good things to eat there is no way to ] make an estimate. A grand song ser- j vice was rendered by the Bethel choir. ] Rev. D. S. McAllister tendered a pas- J tor's warm welcome. Rev. J. K. Hall : lectured briefly on heathenism, and Miss Ella Davidson told of ber trip to j China, illustrating with many memen- , toes. Rev. M. McG. Shields, of Gas- ' tonia, also made a 30 minutes' talk. J The Bethel band furnished music and ( the meeting closed by singing "From Greenland's Icy Mountains." Mr. ( J. M. Moore, the general freight agent of the Carolina and North-Western, was a welcome caller at The Gazette office one day last week. He was here to meet our business men and to open the way for solicitation of business when his road shall have established its own depot at this point, This be hopes to see accomplished before winter. The Narrow Gauge company owns a lot on the north side of the Southern and opposite the Gastonia Cotton mills, which will probably be utilized for the new depot. Mrs. Glenn, of Yorkville, accompanied by her three little Hope granddaughters, came up last week and re until Tnooflntf oft<?rnnnn with ujaiucu uuiu J. uvouttj M>?w. her niece, Mrs. T. L. Clinton. An 8-montbs-old infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Dilling, their only child, died last Saturday afternoon and was buried in the cemetery Sunday afternoon. The champion big watermelons of the season were brought to market Monday by Mr. John Frank Jackson, several of them weighing from 65 to 70 pounds each. These sold for 35 and 40 cents a piece. They were handled by Mr. John Moore, the grocer. Another Porto Rican Town Captured.?The war department, on Thursday, gave out the following delayed telegram from General Miles, dated Ponce, Porto Rico, August 9 : "Secretary of War, Washington : The following has been received from General Wilson: 'General Emmitt's brigade captured Coamo at 8.30 this morning. The Sixteenth Pennsylvania regiment, Colonel Hulings commanding, led by Lieutenant Colonel Biddle, of my staff, having made a flanking movement through the mountains, striking the Aibonito road half a mile beyond the town, captured the entire garrison of Coamo, about 150 men.

NICHOLS, Supt., Chester, S. C. : To You! THEY were passing the inevitable subscription paper for the benefit of the family of the "good fellow," says The I Montreal Underwriter, who had suddetii ly died. Said one business man: "I , give this little for the relief of their immediate wants, and I give under protest. Nothing will I give to create a fund for the relief of the dead man's family* however. You ask why? I reply because in these enlightened days of life insurance n.o man has a right or excuse for leaving a destitute family. He has no moral, ana he should have no legal right, to create a family unless he has and will agree to keep a good-sized policy on his life. If uninsurable, he should not be allowed to ?? T /fhn wpll iimi i y, x ivucn \vuv uvvv^w, .. w... He had a good income and could have been well insured. Now, why should I or any other man be expected to contribute out of our savings to pay G.'s debts?" Why should I pay for his selfishness, or bis carelessness or extravagance? The idea that anybody should put a premium on selfishness is a wrong idea, and these coilections for destitute families are responsible for much improvidence and selfish neglect of life insurance. Men should be impressed with a knowledge of their duty to save and to insure by the entire absence of any makeshift in the form of a post mortem collection. Let us be just as well as generous." The Foregoing Remarks were made by a business man way up in Canada, but the points be makes will apFly as well in South Carolina, as there, t is true that kind hearted and sympathizing friends often have many words of sympathy for the bereaved widow and orphans immediately before and after the funeral, and sometimes go so far as to render substantial temporary aid, but can't and DON'T KEEP IT UP, and the widow and orphans without property or cash are sure to suffer.

In Conclusion, Let lie Say That I Would Hot Pretend to Farm Without It. SEVEN YEARS ago, Mr. W. Holmes Hardin, of Chester countv. enioved the distinction of being one of the'most practical and successful farmers in the Piedmont section, and according to the best information at hand he still ranks among the first. The appended endorsement of the Corbin Disk Harrow was written by him in March, 1890, and what he said then we are sure he will endorse now. Read it and do some thinking: Chester, S. C., March 27,1890. Sam M. Grist, Yorkville, S. C.: Dear Sir: I have owned a Corbin Disk Harrow for several years, and consideriit the most useful and economical farming implement of which I have any knowledge. Mr. Corbin has done more for the farmer than all the politicians, reformers, etc., combined. He has done something practical. No fanner can fail to be benefitted by the use of the Harrow, and the more it is used the greater the benefit or profit. It is almost the only so-called improved farming implement that I have ever seen that would ao all its manufacturers claimed for it, and the only one that would do more. Every farmer should have one, and a man who is able to buy fertilizers for his land is more able to buy a Corbin Disk Harrow. The time will come when . the Corbin Disk Harrow will be considered as much of a necessity on the farm as the wagon, sewing machine, cooking stove, and I might say, the plow ; and the sooner it comes the better lor the farmer. It only takes a farmer, who has been accustomed to the old way of doing things, about one hour to realize how much time and labor he has literally wasted before he used the Corbin Harrow. In conclusion, let me say that I would not pretend to farm without it. Respectfully, W. Holmes Hardin. We sell the GENUINE CORBIN DISK HARROW. It has never had a successful rival. If you want a so-called Spading or Cutaway, we can furnish you one marlA Ktt tKn ninntifontiiroa nf t.hft Pnrhin. The Corbin has solid disks and they are the best; but as stated we can furnish the other if you prefer to take the opinion of someone who has had less experience than we, and will furnish the best harrow of that pattern on the market. It's mechanism is identically the same as the Corbin, the only difference being in the disks. GRIST COUSINS. WHEN YOU WANT TO have your PHOTOGRAPH taken you should not fail to come and see me.
