How Edison Learned to Chew.
"A loDg time ago, when I was a mite
of a boy," said Edison, according to
the Philadelphia Inquirer, "I, with
two other little fellows, bad saved up
a lot of scrap iron and tin and zinc,
which we meant to sell when the holidays
came around. There was a large
boy in the neighborhood (I think be
must have become a bunco steerer af*
* - 1 "?*??
terwarasj, wno Knew ui uui uu<?.u.
One day when we had been in swimming
be came to us and said :
" 'Say, you fellows, if you will give
me that tin and iron and stuff you
have I'll teach you how to chew.'
"The proposition struck us as being
very fair, particularly as he agreed to
furnish the tobacco. Well, we were
quite willing, so he brought some Canadian
cut down to the sand bank by
the river. He divided the stuff into
three parts and gave us each one.
When he said:
"'Now you must do exactly as I
say, and you must do it right away, or
you'll never learn to chew.'
" 'Now,'then,' he shouted "hold up !'
"We held it up.
" 'Put it in your mouth !' he yelled.
"We put it it.
" 'Chew !' he hissed dramatically.
"We worked away at a great rate.
* v j
" 'Swallow it!' ne screecneu.
"We gulped it down, and then that
young rascal fairly rolled down that
bank with laughter, while we rolled
down the other, sicker, I suppose than
any of us had been in our lives before
or since. One of the boys nearly died,
and they had a very serious time With
him."
His Reputation Saved.?"They
tell a funny story in the army about
Captain Patillo, the crack shot," said
one of a party of late diners. "According
to the yarn, General Miles
and a high Washington official once
visited a western fort where the captain
was stationed, and sent word
that they would like to see a little exhibition
of his skill. Patillo happenpened
to be quite sick at the time, but
he couldn't very well refuse, and presently
appeared on the long distance
range. He blazed away, and an Irish
sergeant, who had been sent out to
act as marker, waved a small dag.
'What does that mean ?' asked the
distinguished visitor. "It means I
missed the whole target,' replied Patillo,
gloomily. He tried again with
the same result. 'I don't know what's
the matter with me !' he exclaimed in
deep mortification. 'I never did such
work in my life.'
"At the third shot the distant figure
varied the wigwagging, and the assembled
officer applauded. The signal
meant a bull's eye. Thereupon he
fired 20 consecutive rounds, and each
time the flag waved back the news
that he had pierced the inner circle.
It was a marvelous record, an unparalled
score; the distinguished visitor
was very gracious in his congratulations.
"Later on Patilio still Deaming,
met the marker, crossing the parade
grounds. 'Hello, sergeant!' he said,
'I wonder what the deuce made me
miss the target those first two shots ?'
Whist ! captain,' replied the Irishman,
drawing close, ' 'tis divil the
toime ye hit it at all 1' 'Didn't hit it
at all!" cried Patillo, in amazement;
then why did you signal all those
bull's eyes ?' 'Faith, sor,' said the sergeant,
reproachfully, I knew yer ripytation
was at stake.' "?New Orleans

His Name For It.?Practical people
who have an explanation always
ready are none too numerous. All the
better, therefore, is the following story
from The Gentlewoman :
* The lawyer asked the witness if the
incident previously alluded to wasn't
a miracle, and the witness said he did
not know what a miracle was.
"Oh, come!" said the attorney.
"Supposing you were looking out of a
window in the twentieth story of a
building, and should fall out and
should not be injured. What would
you call that ?"
"An accident," was tne stona repiy.
"Yes, yes ; but what else would you
call it? Well, suppose that you were
doing the same thing the next day ;
suppose you looked out of the twentieth
story window and fell out, and
again should find yourself not injured,
now what would you call that ?"
"A coincidence," said the witness.
"Oh, come, now," the lawyer began
again. "I want you to understand
what a miracle is, and I'm sure you do.
Now, just suppose that on the third
day you were looking out of the twentieth
story window and fell out, and
struck your bead on the pavement 20
stories below and were not in the least
injured. Come, now, what would you
call it?"
"Three times?" said the witness,
rousing a little from his apathy. Well,
I'd call that a habit."
And the lawyer gave it up.
A Cute Lad.?A young Irishman
once went to a kind hearted old squire
for a recommendation. An elaborate
one was written and read to him. He
took it with thanks, but did not move.
"What's the matter with it ?" roar
ea me squire.
"Oh, nothin', sorr,' said the Jad
quickly.
"Well, then, why don't you go?"
"Sure, sorr, I thought on the
stringth of a recommind like that
you'd be wantin' to hire me."
City Boy's Idea.?A Gallatin county
farmer hired a boy from the city to
assist him through the summer. The
farmer told the kid to go out to the
barn lot and salt the calf. The kid
took a quart of salt and industriously
rubbed it into the calf's hide. The
colts got after the calf for the salt and
had about all the hair licked off the
animal before its condition was discovered.?Montgomery

CHEROKEE?The Gaffney Ledger,
August 29: Major John F. Jones, of
Blacksburg, attended the meeting of
the Cowpens Battle Ground Memorial
association in the city yesterday.
Adolphus Curry, a Negro man of Cleveland
county, N. C., was arrested in
Gaffney Saturday by Officer Thack
ston, charged with criminal assault on
a small Negro girl near his home in
North Carolina. Deputy Sheriff Turner,
of Shelby, carried him to Shelby
yesterday morning. There was a
genuiue live rattlesnake on exhibition
at Lon Alexander's store the last of
the week. It was caught near Bessemer
City by a young man. It is five
feet long and has eight rattles. This
is the first rattlesnake that has been
seen in these parts for some time.
Though only a few years ago they
were not uncommon here. Wheat
will be planted extensively in this
county this fall, some of it in the most
approved method and a great deal in
any haphazard way. If our successful
wheat growers will go to work and
impress their methods on their less
careful neighbors, they will benefit the
neighborhood and add greatly to the
yield of the next crop.
LANCASTER?Ledger, August 30:

Both of Clover, S. C. At the depot
Monday morning, an accident, occurred
which, although it might have
been worse, excited much pity among
the spectators. Mr. and Mrs. M. H.
Turbyfill, with their little son about
two or three years old, had just goi
out of their hack. They were going
to Cornelius, N. C., to bury t'heir little
baby which had died not many hours
before. Mr. C. B. Armstrong had
taken the coffin from another vehicle
and left the horse standing a minute
or two while be was busy getting
everything ready for shipment. At
this juncture the horse took fright at
a freight, which came lumbering in,
and dashed back toward the store.
As he turned he struck Mr. Turbyfill,
who had the little boy in his
arms, knocking the father one way and
the child another. The wagon wheel
ran over the child and the mother also
was struck. A flesh wound or two
near the ear and a few braises seemed
to be the only injuries sustained by
the child. Dr. C. E. Adams quickly
patched up the wounds with court
plaster, and when the train came the
stricken family boarded it for their
sorrowful journey.
THE BOLOMAN.
A Filipino Aftsasftin In Uuiform Who Kills
In the Dark.
Manila Cor. Chicago^ Record.
Lieutenant Ara L. Reeves lies in the
hospital now and his wife sits beside
him. His foot is done up in bandages,
one hand is bandaged also, and he has
a strip of adhesive plaster on his face.
The lieutenant is a victim of the boloman,
and is about the first one who
has lived to tell the tale. And he can
best tell that tale.
"Our company of the Seventeenth
infantry has the hardest station there
is at San Fernando," he said to me.
"We have shooting there almost every
night. Not firing to be replied to ; but
enough to kefep us sure of the fact that
the insurgents are there and that they
would come at us if they were not
watched like a hawk. So, you see, we
have to be very careful about the disposition
of our outposts and we have
to know that all is well.
"I suppose every man in charge of a
company?mine is D company?visits
his outposts every night. I have been
in charge of that company for some
time, and I assure you there never has
a night passed that I have not been
fully informed by observation as to the
situation. This thing happened night
before last. It was dark and rainiug,
too. The walking was not good, as
you may be sure with all the rain, and
I was picking my way along as best I
could. All at once I saw a shadowy
form before me. There wasn't any
parleying, either. I could see that it
was a man, and felt, rather than saw,
that he was a boloman."
Mrs. Reeves here said something and
the lieutenant smiled.
"You see," he said, turning on his
pillow so that he could look at me
without effort, "she is going to be a
regular fire-eater; but I don't believe
she is half as blood-thirsty as she talks.
I do not think I hit the fellow; but
there is no way to prove it.
"Well. I was on the defensive in an
instant; but did not have time to
draw my revolver before be made a
lunge at me and was in arm's length.
I believed that be had a knife in one
hand. I was sure he had a revolver,
for he fired point-blank at me, and I
don't see why he did not get me. I
felt the charge pass my face. But
they say that 'a miss is as good as a
mile.' At any rate, thiDgs were happening
at such a pace that I didn't
think much about it then. What I
did realize was that I must get bold of(
his hands, and quick, too. He cut me
a little on the face,"?the lieutenant
jerked his thumb toward the plaster
on his cheek?"and then I caught his
arms. He struck me on the wrist
with the band which held the revolver
and with my left hand I caught
bis right. I was holding his hands,
but he was holding the revolver and
knife. I was holding bis knife band
above my head, with the revolver hand
down, and trying to throw him over
backward.
"We were whirling around and
around like madmen at a waltz when
he began to fire. He was trying to hit
me in the stomach?and it would have
been all day with me if be had?but I
kept his hand where he would have to
shoot toward the ground. I felt a bul1-4
? " fVtnn folh on
let gU 1ULU lliy iuui auu uuvu iviv
other strike almost in the same place.
That was three shots from his revolver,
counting the one he fired at me when
we first came together. I was counting
those shots, and when he had spent
two more, one of which cut through
my bootleg and nipped my shin, I was
pretty sure that he could not shoot
again.
"Then it was that he cut me on the
hand. He could not stab and so hu
worked the blade of the knife across
the back of my wrist. I can assure
you that it was anything but pleasant,
that performance, and presently I
thought he would cut himself loose.
Then I began to force the fighting. I
could not stand on my wounded foot;
but I could use the knee. I proceeded
to punch him in the stomach with it
and pretty soon I felt him falling away
from me. I gave him a push and let
go his hands, both at once, and he was
howled over into a bunch of banana
plants. I pulled my revolver as quick
as I could and began to fire. But my
aim was not good, for so soon as the
fellow was thrown and I attempted to
stand on my foot I fell.
"Just about that time one of the outposts
came running up. He had heard
the firing and was coming to my rescue.
Be he came too late. He said
he was but a minute on the way ; but
he was more than that. It seemed to
me that we were fighting for 10 minutes.
Perhaps it was not as long as
that; but it seemed an interminable
time.
"Oh, he got away. We thrashed
around there ; but the fellow was hidden
by the darkness, and had crawled
into his lines. I wish I knew, for sure,
whether I hit him.
CARRYING CONCEALED WEAPONS.
I? an Officer Entitled to More Privileged
Than a Private Citizen.
Atlanta Journal.
The condemnation of the concealed
weapon habit has grown so strong that
it now extends in many localities to
officers of i be law.
An nffipcr has no more rieht to car
ry a weapon concealed than has a private
citizen ; but their habit of doing
so has been tolerated.
It must cease in South Carolina under
a recent decision of the supreme
court of that state.
The city authorities of Laurens fined a
constable for carrying a concealed pistol,
The case was appealed to the circuit court,
whichioverruled the decision of tho city
authorities; but the supreme court has
reversed the court, and henceforth any
constable or other officer in South Carolina
who may carry a concealed weapon
is liable to indictment and punishment.
I The decision of the supreme court in
this case is heartily approved by the leading
newspapers of the state, and it is said
that the law against concealed weapons
[ will be strictly enforced against constables,
policemen and all other officers.
The late Judge Bartlett, father of
Congressman Bartlett, once presided
at*the trial in Columbus of two policemen
who bad killed a citizen. When
the evidence disclosed the fact that
the policemen drew their pistols from
under their coats Judge Bartlett expressed
great indignation. He inquired
if was the habit of policemen of
Columbus to carry their pistols confenlprl
and nnnn heinc informed that
| X Q
it was he said that the grand jury
should indict every one of them.
Habit varies in this matter, though
every state has a law against carrying
concealed weapons. In most cities
policemen and other officers of the law
carry pistols concealed, and by common
consent tbey are not interferred
with for so doing, but in some cities
the law requiriug all weapons to be
clearly exposed is strictly enforced,
and that must be done hereafter in
South Carolina, unless the supreme
court's interpretation of the law is ignored.
CHICHESTER AT MANILA.
British Admiral Tells How He Did Not
Help Dewey.
Saturday Evening Post.
Sir Edwards Chichester (British
navy) is a typical sea-dog, not at all
the sort of man you would expect to
be a master of diplomacy. His face is
the color of mahogany, deepening into
walnut, the effect of exposure to sud
and storm. His voice has all the musical
vibrance of a frog's croak, swelling
now and then into the suggestion
:of a foghorn. One could imagine how
'effectively such a voice would ring out
on the quarterdeck. His speech was
absolutely unreportable, because his
words were as innocent as new milk,
while his chuckle was one of the most
eloquent things every heard, infecting
[his audience like an epidemic.
"I didn't help Admiral Dewey," he
began with a cherubic look on his face.
"In the first place I was not allowed
to do so, and in the second, Dewey is
a man who helps himself." (Chuckle
and laughter from the audience.) "No ;
it was the other way about; Admiral
Dewey helped us, for he gave us fresh
chow (fresh beef) when we hadn't
any ; a pound of fresh chow a day to
every man on our ships." (Chuckle.)
"I don't know how he get all this fresh
chow; often wondered." (Chuckle
and appreciative laughter.) "Amazing
man Dewey ; seemed to provide for all
contingencies. I wanted to assist the
German admiral; but Dewey was always
so correct in everything that he
gave no chance." (Chuckle.)
"When the German admiral sent me
word that he was coming aboard my
ship to get me to join him in a protest
against Admiral Dewey's action, I

the books out on my cabin table, with

row?and when he came I said, 'what
can I do? This American admiral is
so deadly right in all be has done, and
all he proposes to do, that if we protest
we'll merely show that we don't
understand the law.' And, of course,
there was nothing to be done, and I
did it." (Chuckle and roars of laughter.)
"We had to cling to international
law, you know." I
There were tremendous cheerings
when the British captain got down
from the platform. Mark Twain said
he bad never heard words so innocent
and a chuckle so eloquent. Sir Edward,
although by no means an old
man, has seen considerable active service.
He served in the Transvaal in
1881-82, was with the British forces in
1882, and went up the Nile with Lord
Wolseley in the campaign of 1884-85,
so that he thoroughly understands
what fighting means, and besides this,
as shown by his Mark Twain dinner
speech, he is a clever diplomatist,
which, to be sure, is a high virtue in a
man who is knocking around the world
in command of a first class, twin screw,
6,000-ton heavily armored cruiser.
Cuba's Finances.?The war de
partment gave out on Monday tor puolication
an interesting statement of tbe
financial condition of the island of
Cuba. It shows that under tbe management
or *he United States government
the receipts of the island from
January 1, 1899, to June 30, of the
current year, exceed tbe expenditures
by the very handsome sum of $1,480,021.
This statement probably will be
a surprise to many persons who thought
that Cuba, under the military occupation
of the United States, was not
self-sustaining.
During the period named the receipts
from all sources were $6,982,010;
disbursements, $5,501,988. Of
the money disbursed $1,712,014 was
expended in sanitation ; $505,263 in
the erection and improvements of barracks
and quarters ; $443,563 in the establishment,
etc., of tbe rural guard
and administration ; $250,674 on public
works, harbors and forts ; $293,881 in
charities and hospitals; $242,146, for
civil government; $723,281 on munici
palities ; $88,944 in aid of the destitute
$42,205 in quarantine matters. Tota
$4,448,924.
The statement for July shows tha
the customs collections in the entir
island for July alone were $1,201,537
internal revenue collections, $56,351
postal collections, $15,000 ; miscellany
ous collections, $65,435. Grand toti
receipts for the month, $1,339,324
disbursements, $1,029,877.
Advantages of the Nicaragu
Canal.?Colonel N. F. Thompsoi
secretary of the Huntsville, Ala
chamber of commerce, in charge of tb
committee on arrangements for the it
dustrial convention to be held tbei
early in October, received a letter lai
Monday from Senator John T. Morga
in reply to an invitation to address th
gathering. It is quite likely that tb
senator will attend the convention, a
though he says he cannot make a pos
tive promise at this time.
The subject chosen for Senator Moi
gan is the "Nicaragua Canal," and i
relation to it he says: "The foreig
markets are those we must reach 01
for if we would enjoy the full measur
of our advantages. Towards the pr<
motion of this policy nothing can b
of greater advantage than a ship cant
through the Isthmus of Darien, ao<
that is now secured. I speak wit
firm confidence in this great fact as a
achievement that is accomplished i
the secure foundations that have bee
laid and only awaits, for a short perio<
its completion. A cotton port at Mi
nila that will enable us to reach tb
nripnt. with our cotton and cottc
goods and our provisions and supplii
without the enormous expenditure v,
are making and have so long endure
in the tribute to Liverpool as our poii
of distribution to Asiatic consumer
must be a great factor in the progrei
of American productions and mam
fact u res.
"The example of the wonderfi
growth of Hong Kong, until it is tl
third, if not the second, seaport in tt
world, is a demonstration of what w
can do in the Asiatic trade if we ava
ourselves of advantages that ha>
come to us even without our seekic
them."
Mismanagement In Manila.The
censorship in the Philippini
continues unchanged. It is politic)
instead of military.
The only friendly natives wboi
your correspondent found on a soutl
em tour were the Moros, who so ft
are unwilling that the United Stat<
should hold any territory except tt
singled walled town of Sulu. Eve
the non-combatants hate us. In Mi
nila the native feeling against Amer
cans is growing stronger every day.
Taxes are higher in Manila than ui
der Spanish rule, and the inhabitant
bitterly complain. Living expense
have doubled.
The native police have been dii
charged and Americans appointei
whose administration is tyrannical an
inefficient, because they are ignorai
of the language and not familiar wit
the perpetrators of crime.
Murders and robberies, old inbabi
ants say, are more numerous than eve
before. Taxes and customs duties ai
being used to support the army, ii
stead of being applied to municipi
necessities, mis reaiiy prolongs ic
war by keeping the natives irritate
after profuse promises of good goveri
meat.
The desire of the natives for Amer

borne out by the facts.?Hong Kon

Senator Vest on Politics.?.
special of August 29, from Toront<
Canada, says:
Senator Vest, of Missouri, now i
Toronto, has been interviewed o
American politics. He referred t
President McKinley's speech at Ocea
Grove, laying down the administri
tion's policy as to expansion. M:
Vest said the expansion question i
causing misgivings in many statei
Many prominent Democrats are i
sympathy with the policy, while man
leading Republicans are opposed to il
How important these differences t
opinion are will not be known unt
after the election. Expansion is nc
regarded favorably in the souther
states, where there is great outer;
against the fruit imported from Port
Rico aud Cuba. The Imperialists sa
these islands are great markets fo
American manufactures.
"This is an illusory view," said Mi
Vest, "and at best a prediction."
As to the coming campaign, Mi
Vest says the silver question is by n
means dead. It was never mor
prominent as an issue than it is today
This is shown by the Tammany de
monstration of July 4, when Mr. Hog
made his famous speech. In the wes
land south the silver agitation is mor
determined than in 1896, and ttn
question will be a leading issue nex
year, and it is more than likely that i
will receive more popular suppor
than it did three years ago.
