Performance of Three Soldiers in Greenville. Greenville News, Thursday. AH kinds of curious schemes and notions develop in the brains of Greenville's soldier guests. A day or two ago three privates were clumping along by a handsome residence in front of which was its handsome young mistress watering her lawn from a rubber hose. The three soldiers lined up against the fence and presently one of them said solemnly: "Sissy !" That seemed to define him as a West Virginian. Northern men don't say "sissy." The lady took no notice; but went on watering her lawn. "Sissy," the soldier repeated after a pause, "you're goiu' to get your feet wet." No answer. The warning was repeated. Then the three soldiers opened the gate and filed in. Two of them took the astonished and somewhat alarmed young woman by her arms and half lifted her to her own piazza. The third picked up the hose and without another word or a change of his serious J countenance, proceeded to complete! the watering of the lawn. The operation continued some five or ten minutes, the lady looking on, unable to determine whether to be scared, angry, amused or grateful. Then the soldiers saluted, departed through the gate and clumped away. And nobody knows yet whether they intended to be impudent, were executing their own special ideas of a joke, or were honestly acting according to their lights on gallantry and their determination to save the feet of a handsome young housewife from dampness. STOOD THEM OFF. Bluffed Twenty Girls Who Wanted to Kiss Him. Baltimore Sun. The greatest hero of the war is unquestionably Osborne Deignan, one of the sailors who helped Hobson to sink the Merrimac in the channel outside of Santiago. When he reached his home at Stuart, Iowa, Saturday, he was met by about 500 of his fellow-townsmen and by a determined band of 20 of the prettiest girls in the place, who had sworn to kiss him before he stirred from the railroad platform, or perish in the attempt. Events have shown that ttfe brave Hobson would have surrendered without a word of protest, aud it is probable that neither Schley nor Dewey would have had the resolution to say the ladies nay had they been in Deignau's place. Even the ascetic Sampson would, most likely, have accepted with thanks the 20 salutes offered by these pretty girls. But Deignau, it seems, is made of sterner stuff than any other warrior known to history in ancient or modern - ?? J limes. 1 ne smues uuu um cMca ui beauty are considered the legitimate perquisites and rewards of military glory, and it is doubtful if George Washington himself, although he could not tell a lie, would have been able to refuse the sweet refreshment offered to the brave sailor lad at Stuart. Deignan, however, gently but firmly repulsed the tender charge of the demonstrative damsels and resolutely declined to be kissed, declaring that there were handsomer men in the crowd than be, and men who would make more satisfactory subjects for osculation. The girls of Stuart probably felt disappointed for a little, but their admiration for Diegnan must have been intensified a thousand fold by bis wonderful exhibition of heroism. SOITH CAROLINA NEWS. Beer Privilege Revoked. The state board of control, on Wednesday, revoked a beer privilege recently granted to Settlemeyer, of Gaffney, and returned $27 for beer that had been confiscated. Troublesocae Guests. At Columbia, on Tuesday, 175 men of the First Rhode Island rcgimeut were arrested drunk, and put in the uitv euard house. Thev wrecked the | o V mayor's office and one of them dumped a handful of cartridges iuto the stove, developing a series of explosions. The Tolberts Free. John R. Tolbert and his sou, Joe, were released from the peniteutiary at Columbia on Monday, the prosecution against them having been withdrawn. It appears that there was no evidence connecting them with the riots at Phoenix, and their release was urged by people of that neighborhood. Grand Jury Blames Tolberts. The Greenwood grand jury places the responsibility for the recent rioting. In its report to the court it says: "We are satisfied beyond question that the prime cause of the entire trouble was the incendiary speeches made by the Tolberts and their followers, thus inciting the Negroes to violence and lawlessness." Soldiers Kill a Negro. Camden correspondent of The State : Wiley Bradley and Tom Hammond, two young men of ihis county, recently of the First South Caroliua regiment, became involved Monday night in a fuss, a few miles below Camden, with a Negro man named Silas Austin, which resulted in the Negro being shot twice in the stomach by Wiley Bradley with a pistol. The Negro is partially bliud. Your correspondent is informed that the defendants claim that Austin attacked them with a razor, cuttiug Hammond ou the ami. It is not known yet whether or not the Negro will recover. A warrant has been issued for Bradley and Hammoud. South Carolina PostotHces. There are nine South Carolina postoffice cases under consideration, says the Washington correspondent of The News and Courier, and the Republican leaders swarm the corridors of the postoffice department like dies around a fish wharf on a hot afternoon. The political fruit about to ripeu consists of the following offices: Greenwood, with James Tolbert slated for appointment ; Abbeville, James Collins; Florence, Rev. J. Wilson ; Marion, L. R. Owens; Beunettsville, E. J. Sawyer; Yorkville, A. S. Withers; Rock Hill, Colouel Pride ; Spartanburg, four candidates, Bluebacker, Asker, Yates aud Chatfield. Boss Webster is supporting Chat field. Darlington is contested by _ Dr. Lunney and G. H. McKee, with Webster for Joseph Hart. Several of these appointments have been kept waiting for sometime, and Boss Web- g ster is doing his best to shake the V( administration tree, hoping to bring ^ down some of the fruit. M Negro, Soldier, 'Postam. P Greenville News, Wednesday : A at soldier euchered a Negro out of a dollar at the rear of a beef market iu Main street yesterday afternoou. When last seen the Negro was swear- ? ing be would shoot the soldier on sight. The soldier picked up a 'possum be- If longing to the beef market and offered ^ it for sale to the Negro for 50 cents. 80 The Negro gave the soldier a silver in dollar to get the change. The Negro has not seen his dollar nor tho soldier yj since. A few minutes after the soldier fr disappeared the proprietor of the beef ' market claimed the 'possum. The soldiers have evidently learned already = the weak point of the Afro-American citizen. ? 18 Another Clash In Illinois.? a Non-union colored miners aud white P. strikers clashed in the streets of Pana, 111., last Thursday. Several hundred p shots were fired, but the combatants q did their shooting from behind trees and hedges, consequently no blood ^ was spilled. -ja The trouble is said to have been pi started by an unknown Negro firing ?

W * * * sti Road Tax In Gabton.?The elec- Cj tion for road tax carried. Two of the ? precincts did not send up returns ; but the others sent up a sufficiently large vote to win. It was learned at the register's office that the vote so far A counted amounts to about 2,600. The i other two precincts will run the num* Tl ber to 2,800 or 3,000. This means that there is to be levied a road tax of 5 cents on the hundred and 15 cents on the poll, and that Gas- T1 tou will hereafter work her convicts upon her own roads.?Gastonia Ga- T zette, 17th. ^ ? - * ipi ?

DOBSON'S ex- E clusively, and the rush of ladies who crowded her store, before "The Dame" had fairly departed, was only a slight token of their pleasure at "The E Darne's" wise selection in placing her P headwear, and from the continued jamb J and rush it seemed to Mrs. DOBSON and E her accomplished co-workers that this A eccentric "old dame" had slighted all C other distributing points for miles around 0 and had left them nothing at all. With 0 all the newest styles in hats, and this in- C formation disseminated among the ladies, the only object of "Old Dame Fashion" E could have been to tax our physical EN- E DURANCE.
