ADVICE TO A BRIDE. A drummer joined the crowd of jokers in one of the hotel lobbies last nigbt, with a good-natured smile and waited patiently until the laugh caused by the last story had died away. The joke had been something about a bride catching the measles on her wedding trip, and the drummer only caught the last words, "They had been married only eight days but he was prepared to follow up the subject with one better. "These newly married people are a nnisonpa unvtVAV " hfi Raid. "One night last week I boarded a sleeper after a bard day's work and was kept awake for two or three hours by a silly couple on their honeymoon. Would never have gotten to sleep at all that night, I guess, if it hadn't been for an old gentleman who very unceremoniously broke up the cooing." Following is the story he told : The couple bad for some time been very audibly calling each other "toots," "darling," "lovey-dovey," and other felicitous names, recorded only; in the lexicon of love, and everybody in the car except the happy couple were bored to death. / The feminine voice aI last an* nounced that she was jibing to sleep and all heaved a thankful sigh. But their pleasure was shonfc-lived, for her better, or rather, othefr half, after a few moments, murmufred : "Kiss me, Mary ; kiss me just once more before you go to sleep." | "Oh, John, I am sp tired; let me alone," was the drowsy answer. "No; kiss me again,\Jdary,"insisted John. But Mary didcKt reply, and John, evidently fearing that she would get to sleep without any further osculatory demonstrations of her undying adoration for her liege lord, became impatient and repeated frantically: "Kiss me, Mary, kiss me just once, dear Mary; won't you kiss me ? Ple-e-ease kiss me Mary." A A. 4 4L. a1J Al? At til IB juncture, lue uiu geui/ieuiuu at the further end of the car, put bis head out of his berth and yelled at the top of his voice: "Kiss him, Mary, kiss him. For God's sake kiss him and let us all go to sleep." A murmur of approbation went from one end of the car to the other and not another sound was heard from the berth occupied by the newly married pair.?Atlanta Journal. The Impossible.?"Just imagine. If you were a flea you could jump 200 miles at a single jump." "But I am not a flea." <?T Hidn't. sftv vnn wftrft. T Raid if you were." "But you implied that I might be." "Not at all. Iu estimatiug the relative strength of a flea as compared with a man, I said that one of your size could jump 200 miles." "Nothing of the sort, sir. You distinctly spoke of measa flea." "How absurd ! I merely inferred that suppose you were a flea." "Do I look like a flea ?" "Why, no sir, certainly not." "Have I the arms, legs, proboscis, anatomy of a flea ?" "Who said you did ?" "You did, sir!" "I didn't!" "You did !" "Well, sir, I am sorry. I apologize." "You admit, then, that you did refer to me as a flea ?" "Why, no I don't." "But you have just apologized." "Well, well, let it go. I said you were a flea. I apologize. I am sorry. I was wrong." "Good ! You were wise. I am no flea, sir." "Of course, not. Utterly removed from a flea. You couldn't be one if you tried. Impossible !" "Impossible, sir ! For me, sir? How impossible ?" "Yes, sir, exactly, sir. How can an ass be a flea, sir f" The Secret Is Out.?Ad Illinois boy was asked to write aD essay on Masonry, and here is what he wrote : "KiDg Solomon was a man who lived so maDy years in the country that he was the whole push. He was an awfully wise man, and one day two women came to him, each holding to the leg of a baby and nearly pulliDg it it in two, and each claiming it. And KiDg Solomon wasn't feeling right good and he said : 'Why couldn't the brat have been twins and stop this bother?' And then he called for his machete and was going to Weylerize the poor innocent little baby, and give each woman a piece of it when the real mother of the baby said : 'Stay, Solomon, stay thy hand. Let the old hag have it. If I can't have a whole baby I won't have any." 'TheD Solomon told her to take the baby aud go home and wash its face, for he knew it was hers. He told the other woman to go chase herself. King Solomon built Solomon's temple and was the father of Masons. He had 700 wives and 300 lady friends, and that's why there are so many Masons in the world. My papa says KiDg Solomon was a warm member, aod I think he was hot stuff myself. That is all I know about King Solomon." Work For Dad.?What are you so busy about, Johnny ?" "WritiDg out words I don't know, dad. Our teacher told me to write out the ones I don't know and ask you the meanings, so's I might remember them." "A capital plan, my boy ! How many are there you don't know ?" "I've got down 103, dad; but I haven't finished yet." But dad suddenly discovered it was time for Johnny to go to bed. Evidence.?Mrs. Buggins?Has the ice man been here this morning?

CHESTER?The Lantern, May 29: Dr. A. Erskine Miller, of Washington, D. C., spent two days in Chester last week visiting relatives. He also spent a day with his brother, J. Y. Miller, in Gastonia. Rev. J. H. Simpson, of the orphanage at Hickory Grove, on his way to Winnsboro to view the eclipse, spent awhile in the city Saturday. Mr. W. B. Cauthen is now agent for the Southern railway at Blackstock. Ben Wilkes, the barber, and one of our most respectable colored citizens, was arrested Saturday for drawing a pistol on another man. While at the mayor's court, he created quite a sensation by leveling a gun at the crowd. He was tinea $10 ana given twenty days. Ben is now in jail and it is supposed that be is insane, as a result of drinking. Married, by L. W. Henrv_ff P , T?^?man. S. C at lilB If Alienee. May 26, . ai^TTciock p. m., Mr. Walter Watts to Miss Cynthia Kline, all of Fort Mill. On Saturday, May 19th, 1900, a number of the descendants of the heroes and heroines of the war of the American Revolution met at the home of Mrs. John Stringfellow and organized themselves into a chapter with the following officers: Regent, Mrs. J. J. Stringfellow; Vice-Regent, Miss Marion Durham; Historian, Mrs. 0. A. Wylie; Secretary and Treasurer, Miss Annie Hardin ; Registrar, Mrs. George Gage. Sixteen names were enrolled, among them a real daughter of a Revolutionary soldier, Mrs. Sarah Wallace?what is called a gold spoon daughter, as all such are presented with a gold spoon. The above name, "Mary Adair," was unanimously adopted after a discussion of the names of heroes, battles, etc. It was decided that Chester's battles had been too disastrous, and we did not want to borrow from other counties; that it was proper and well that the heroines should be thus honored. This was thought to be a safe and pretty name. She was one of Mrs. Ellet's heroines and the ancestress of three of the members forming the chapter, so it should be named the "Mary Adair." It was deoided that we meet quarterly, tbe first Saturday of October being the time for next meeting, when each one is requested to give some account of her Revolutionary ancestors, thus to become acquainted with each other from a "far back." After business was finished a patriotic lunch was served. The sandwitches were tied with ribbons of red, white and blue, and, as our fair 4 * ?- ? 1 J ? imnntif a/1 fno iDuuiera wuuiu uui unu& im^uivcu w>i*, neither did we; but tea, fresh and fragrant, from our own free soil, South Carolina. There were daughters present from Richburg, Blackstock, Lockhart, and Chester. Chester county can furnish D. A. R. from all her borders, for it is well stocked with the children's children who have inherited the land won for them by the staunch and determined men and women of the Revolution. We claim a full share of the honors for the women. Their spirit was as dauntless and unconquerable as that of the men. After sending their husbands, sons and brothers to battle, they spun and wove, sowed and reaped, moulded bullets and nursed the sick and wounded back to strength and life, with many other deeds of courage and endurance. As Sarah McCalla said to the prisoners at Camden jail, "Have no fear; the women are doing their part of the service." Yes, Chester county is full of names that can claim this noble descent, but they are not half proud of it. They should consider how honorable a title it is and trace it up while there are some living who can aid them. They need not join a chapter unless they wish ; hut write it all down and tell the children all about it, and teach them to be proud of it. It will do them good and the country good. That is one thing the D. A. R. wish to do, to foster the spirit of '76. They are the aristocrats of the country. It is a title that can neither be bought nor acquired. It was won for us through suffering and hardships and we should prize it. CHEROKEE?The Gaffhey Ledger, May 29: Mrs. S. S. Ross and Mrs. B. L. Hames, returned to the city Saturday from a visit to Mrs. Meek Smith, at Clover, iu York county. Rev. W. S. B. Ford, of Newberry, is conducting an interesting meeting at the Second Baptist church, which is attended at every service by large and interested congregations. Mr. Ford is a nrnnd n?af<har nf orrpflt. PRmPSlnPSfl fSVVU J/?VWV4JV. V. J and has the ability of attacbiDg his bearers to himself and bis work. The meeting will continue some days with services at 3.30 and 8 p. m. The day for examination of teachers in Cherokee county has been changed at the suggestion of State Superintendent McMabon from the 15th of June to the 6th and 7th of July, in order to give the teachers the benefit of the summer school before examination. G. W. McKeown, of Mercer, came to see The Ledger Friday. Mr. McKeown had a few days before received a letter from his son in the Philippines, who belongs to Company D, Seventeenth U. S. Infantry, which stated that he had been in a fight with the Filipinos a few days before it was written, and that he bad not been in jurea ; uui mat uis uapiaiu was aovucly wounded. Young Mr. McKeown has many friends in Cherokee who will be pleased to learn of bis safety and that he is having good health, and who also wish .for bis safe return to his family and friends. Early Saturday morning the town was astir making preparations to go to the Cowpens battleground to attend the annual celebration, and in a short time vehicles of every description, loaded with all ages and conditions of humanity were moving out towards the historic field. The same is true of every neighbor hood in reach of the battleground, and by 10 o'clock a big crowd was on the field and they were still pouring in from all quarters. By noon the crowd was estimated at 2,000 people, all glad that they were able to be present to do honor to the heroes who fought on the field. The programme for the day was much interferred with by the absence of General LeRoy F. Youmans who was expected to deliver the oration. At half past 11 o'clock, President Horton called the meeting to order and first introduced Miss Margaret McKie, of the 1900 class of Limestone college, who bad prepared an essay on the battle. Miss McKie appeared on the front of the platform accompanied by Prof. Griffith, who read her essay, which was a fine piece of historic literature, showing great natural ability and the fine literary training for which her college is famous; and a knowledge of the battle most creditable to her. Miss McKie is a charming daughter of Edgefield, of which the historic old county should be proud and of whom Cherokee feels complimented by having her educated in her borders. Miss TIcKle was accompanied on the stand by the entire class of 1900, which added much beauty and brightness.to the occasion. After Miss McKie's essay, Mrs. Javous Kimbrel, about 80 years old, was place on the stand. She is the daughter of the late Potter Enloe, who was a Revolutionary soldier, and as far as we know is the only such now living in the state. Mrs. Kimbrel received much attention and seemed to enjoy the occasion. She was accompanied on the stand by her husband, who was a Confederate soldier. Captain H. P. Griffith, in a most patriotic and happy way, told the audience who Mrs. Kimbrel was and of the patriotic service of her father. Captain J. W. Carlisle, of Spartanburg, thbn made a patriotic and encouraging addreBS giving much hope and encouragement to those who were working for the park. After this the large crowd gathered around their well filled baskets and with their friends enjoyed the good things they had prepared for the occasion, and then spent the afternoon in pleasant social intercourse. The older ones talking of the good old times and the jroung.ones of the good times coming, when the Cowpens park will become a fact. The Cowpens Memorial association, with W. T. Horton, president, and E. A. Trescott, secretary and treasurer, arei still working for the park. It has an option on the land and nearly money enough to pay for it. Contributions are coming freely and it will be paid for by the 15tb of June. LANCASTER-Ledger, May 30: Rev. B. P. Reid will begin a meeting i in the Presbyterian church at Heath Spring, tomorrow (Thursday) uight. The Pleasant Valley school, Prof. L. Shurley, principal, closed with a big 1 picnic last Thursday. Speeches were 1 made on the occasion by Hon. Thos. F. McDow, of Yorkville, Rev. J. B. Harris, Mr. Ardrey and others, and the occasion was one long to be remembered as one of the most pleasant 1 in the history of the school. While ; playing with a number of children i with a hand turning lathe at Mr. N. H. Hallman's, Thursday afternoon, Ira, his little 7-year-old son, got his cloth- 1 ing caught in the lathe, and before the 1 children who were turning it noticed, the little fellow was being jerked around by it, breaking his right arm in two places and dislocating it at the should- i er. A telegram received here yesterday from Columbia announced the death of Mrs. Carry Beckham, wife of Mr. W. J. Beckham, recently of this place, and a daughter of Mr. H. W. Mobley, of Heath Spring. She had been sick for several weeks and her 1 death was not unexpected. She was ; about 22 years of age, and leaves her husband and one child surviving her. A train load of excursionists from Blacksburg viewed the eclipse from a point on the S. C. & G. Exten- 1 sion R. R., several miles southeast of town last Monday, and on their return stopped over several hours in Lancas- 1 ter. Nothing was known here of their coming until their arrival; but 1 they received a warm welcome and i seemed to enjoy their visit. We were ; glad to have them and hope they'll i come again. < GASTON?Gastonia News May 29: ! One thousand cords of wood have ' been placed at Loray for the Reid i Brick Co. Seven thousand cords are still to be delivered. Capt. J. D. . Moore returned Saturday from Wash- 1 ington, where he went as a member of ' a committee of business men to secure J more favorable freight rates for the south. We are glad to state that the ' committee met with success. Some tramp found it rather cold last Thursday night at Lowell, so he built a fire of baskets, etc,, in the sand box J from which the stove bad been removed, in the shed of Mr. Phillip Gruchy's ' house, and made a bed of some old clothing in the room. He beat Mr. I Gruchy up next morning and departed 1 without giving his name or paying for i his lodging. Mr. Gruchy didn't know i he had entertained a stranger within his walls until he went to feed his l chickens next morning. Mr. A. i K. Loftin, accompanied by Mr. G. F. 1 McLaugben, captured 500 pounds of ! tobacco above the Loray Friday night, i The tobacco was in leaf and twist and 1 came from Buncombe county. The < owner had been to Gastonia during the I day to make sales. But the revenues l got him when night came. Work i has begun at Lincolnton in laying cross : ties and rails for the standard guage i of the Carolina and North-Western i railroad. The work will be pushed ] forward in both directions from Lin- I colnton?that point dividing the road 1 into two nearly equal halves. As has i been stated, the traffio of the road will i not stop; the narrow gauge rails be- ] . - 1 _ _ . ing placed on tne atanaara gauge ues i until the standard gauge track is com- i plete. This will be a unique feature < in railroad building, there being two i sets of rails on one set of ties. The i surveyors are now busy on the exten- I sioD of 60 miles through the mountain to the rich coal fields of Kentucky and Tennessee etc., connecting with the trunk lines beyond the mountains and passing through the finest of fruit growing, trucking, and forestal regions, As soon as the northern terminus is completed, the southern terminus will be extended to the coast, making a trunk line crossing the great trunk lines from the south to the north with distributing points at Hickory, Gastonia, Chester, and other places. The managers of the road foresee the great amount of traffic and travel destined tc be done on their road aud the rapid development of the section through which it passes, and are justly proud that the famous little "dummy line" is soon to be developed into a modern road with the latest equipments. Gazette, May 21: Mrs. M. J. Clark, of Yorkville, and Miss Myrtle Duff are visiting in Begonia. Messrs. Marsh and Holland Morrow and Gus McLean returned last week from Rock Hill where they have been attending school. The building committee of the Baptist church, at a recent meeting, decided to make the facade of oil press brick, which will make it one of the handsomest churches of Gastonia's progressive population. The work oi erecting the building will begin in a few days. Dr. J. C. Wbitesides, although much improved in health, is still a little weak. He left Tuesday for Hickory to visit his brother, Dr. B. F. Whitesides, and from there he will go to Rutherfordton to visit other relatives. He expects to be gone about two weeks. . He hopes to be as strong as ever on his return. CLEVELAND?The Shelby Aurora, May 30: The new engine, an immense one it is, of the Shelby Cotton mills, was placed and fired up last week, and the echoes of its siren whistles alarmed tbe natives. The placing of shafting and machinery goes along Bteadily, and this new monument to Shelby progress and industrial energy, will soon be ready for business. Another case of smallpox developed last week here, the victim being a Negro named Webb. He was immediately removed to the pest house, together with all the immates of the bouse in which he was living. Quite, if not all tbe suspects confined, had been released prior to this case, and it was hoped the disease bad been effectually stamped out. We note with pleasure from some of our ex changes that the Daughters of tbe American Revolution are endeavoring to get possession of the Ring's Mountain battleground property. The government ought to own and make it a national park, and we hope the cod gressmen from the Carolinas will join in their efforts to secure the co-opera tioo of the government in mating tms a national park as a fitting memorial of one of the most important battles of the Revolution, that turned the tide that resulted in American independence. After a lingering illness, Mr. Davis Mauney, for a number of years a resident ofthis county, died in Cherryville, on Thursday last, aged 88 years. He was a remarkable man, and by industry and frugality'amassed a large estate valued at about $50,000. Beginning life with no capital save a clear head and indomitable will, he overcame difficulties and his business life was a splendid success. A widow, daughter and three sons survive him. These sons, Messrs. W. A., J. S. and S. 8. Mauney are each successful mill men, the two former living at King's Mountain and the latter at Cherryville. King's Mountain Oracle, May 25: The strike of the operatives in the weave room at the Dilling mill was not a success as far as the strikers are concerned. The company now has over 300 looms running, and everything is running on with very little inconvenience to the company. We are informed that the leaders in the strike - ? ._i i 1. ** Amn|AVt will not oe laaeu imua iuiu iuc cui^ivj of the company. Some of tbem bad been in the employ of'the company for a long time, and were counted as tbeir most reliable bands. Now tbey will have to bunt new jobs, and we think the mo9t of tbem are sorry they struck. As far as we can learn, the employees of the Dilling mill are paid as much and treated as kindly as in any of the mills with which we are acquainted. The strikers were wrong In thinking tbey could force the management of this mill in any such way. Tbey struck at a very inopportune time, which will not help their cause in the eyes of the community, as it apparently seems is if they had intended to strike while the superintendent was away, but he returned unexpectidly to tbem. BLEEDING THE CANDIDATES. A.n Obnoxious Practice That Should Be Abandoned. Sreenwood Journal. Ladies, gentlemen and little children, this is election year, and the candidates for office are among you seeking the suffrage of their fellow-citizens. They are respectable men and surely not one of them would refuse to respond to any worthy cause ; but their purses are not bursting with gold and they bave many necessary demands to meet. Now there is a sponging custom in 1*.? many uumiiiuuiucs iuau ouuuiu uc broken up, the custom of torturing candidates who have little money, by begging them to give something for this or that thing just because it is deemed an opportune time to pull money out of men for the reason that tbey are candidates and could hardly refuse for fear of incurring the displeasure of the solicitors and their friends. The manhood and womanhood of Greenwood county should repudiate this abominable custom and refuse to countenance any effort to prey upon candidates for contributions to buy organs, paint churches, or for any other purpose where the generasity of the public is appealed to for assistance. Let the candidates come among you feeling that they are free from any such annoyance and it will ' give you and them more pleasure. ' When a worthy candidate goes cami paigning among the people and a good i cause presents itself, he will gladly ; contribute to it without solicitation . because the act and the opportunity t will serve him well. Yes, let the pride ! and independence of a refined com, munity set this nuisauce aside and let : the candidate be received into your circles with that hospitality which is characteristic of South Carolinians, > without anything to embarrass the > anxious candidate, for bis mental bur> dens are not a few while the canvass is progressing and many things work together for his final discomfiture. What Ends It.?A young lady ' (matrimonially inclined), says Spare Moments, left her prayerbook behind > her one Sunday in church, instead of ' bringing it home with her as usual. Inside of it she had written the effusion : A bunch of flow'rs, A look or two, , A little billing, A little coo? A little coming > And going, till i They go to church, Ana Ray, "I will,"? , And that ends it. On looking at the book on the following Sunday, sbe . observed that | someone had penciled this effusion in it: My lass, you're wrong? You sorely are; You worked that rhyme , Just one too far. It ends right there? Oh, no, it don't' For coming home Sbe says, "I won't 1"? And that begins it.
