Bit of Negro Philosophy.?A serious application of the refrain in the song, uIf you ain't got no money you needn't come 'round," was pointed out the other night by Booker T. Washington in his lecture in the Gray's armory in aid of the endowment fund of the Tuskegee Industrial school, of which he has been the head for nearly 20 years. One phase of his address was devoted to impressing the Negro with that commercial side of ethics which parallels respectability " with property. After citing instance after instance of individual success on the part of colored people, he told a humorous story of a member of the "po'h white trash," who endeavored to cross a stream by means of a ferry owned by a black man. "Uncle Mose," said the white man, "I want to cross. But I hain't got no money." Uncle Mose scratched his head. "Doan you got no money't all ?" he queried. "No," said the wayfaring stranger. 44T KoTj/arv'f a nonf. '' "Bat it doan cost you but 3 cents," insisted Uncle Mose, "ter cross de ferry." "I know," said the white man ; "but I haven't got the 3 cents." Uncle Mose was iu a quandary. "Boss," he said, "I done tole you what. 'Er man what's got no 3 cents am jez ez well off on dis side er de ribber as on de other." Love Followed Pity. ? "Yes," said the village gossip, "John wuz always a-pesterin' of Sue about marryin' of him, an' she don told him 'no' more times 'n I could tell you." "You don't say." "Hit's true as pretjchin'. Well, you know John carries the mail ?" "Yes. I have beam tell he does." "An' las' Wednesday was a week, Sue was a travelin' along with him goin' to town, when John ups and says if she didn't make up to marry him he'd make the horse run down bill till all three of 'em wus drowned in the bottom er the river." "Do tell." ."That's what. But what do you reckon Sue did ?" "l(ora kd0w8." "Caught John by the collar, jerked him outen the buggy, grabbed up a live rattlesnake that was a-sleepin' by the roadside, and lambasted John with it till he couldn't stan'." "Laws a-massy." "Then she stomped the snake ter death, an' John?he took ter his bed, whar be laid fer two weeks; an' Sue got sorry for him, an' nussed him, an' killed a beef ter make stew for him, an' now?what do you reckon ?" "I dunno." "She's a-goin' ter marry him." Finally Conquered. ? Peddler (opening his pack.)?"I have here, madam, an improved rat trap, which?" Woman of the house?We are never troubled with rats. .

Reversing the wires, that for the upper portion, and bringing down the side flaps thus, we have a device for holding eggs when cooking?" "We never eat eggs." "And by holding these wire loops, as you see me doing now, it makes a handy arrangement for holding a small mirror?" "Haven't the slightest use for such a thing." "While by adjusting another small mirror in this position and another at this angle, as you will notice, and placing it in a kitchen window, for example, it has the curious effect of enabling the observer seated at one side of the window and entirely out of sight, to see distinctly through any window that may be opposite and to note what is Groins? on inside, and all I ask for this most useful and comprehensive invention is three shillings, which is only about one half?"

He Wasn't Afraid.?At the battle of Spottsylvania during the Civil War, I found a drummer boy belonging to a Connecticut regiment crouched down behind a log and crying as if overcome with grief. He was only 14 years old, and it was his first battle, and no one could blame bim for being upset. "Don't be afraid, Johnuy. You'll come out all right," I said. "I ain't?ain't afraid," he sobbed in reply?"that is, I ain't afraid of being hit." "Then what's the matter?" "N-nuthin', only if they want my drum, why don't they come and take it without all this noise?"

A New Jersey peach grower said at the recent state horticultural convention in regard to thinning peaches: This portion of the work of peach culture should receive much attention from the orchard owner. If too great a number of peaches are left upon the tree to ripen, one of two results must surely follow?either the fruit will be undersized and often so inferior in quality and insipid in flavor as to render it worthless for market, or else the tree will, from overwork, become AThfliiRtnd And finallv blicht and die. The most perfect way of thinning the fruit from trees that are overloaded is to pick off by hand, leaving it from 4 to 6 inches apart; but where help is scarce and economy is the object, I have seen poles or long clubs used in removing the surplus fruit with good result. There must be, however, some rule adopted to determine the quantity of fruit that we wish to remain to ripen upon the trees. This the individual grower must largely determine for himself. When he fully realizes that a peach tree can successfully ripen only a given number of pounds of fruit ?the amount varying according to the age size, and condition of the tree ?he will possess knowledge requisite for correct thinning. He must bear in mind that the profits of a peach orchard depend almost solely upon two features?the size and color of the fruit. The following may prove to be of some value in determining the amount of fruit that should be left to ripen upon the tree : Number of peaches, 300; diameter, 2} inches; baskets, 4; weight, 100 pounds. Number of peaches, 600; diameter, 4J inches; baskets, 4 ; weight, 100 pounds. Number of peaches, 720 ; diameter, 2 inches; baskets, 4; weight; 100 pounds. Accuracy of grading will in the end enhance the value of the crop. Small or large peaches should be graded to a uniform size ; but the small fruit will not ordinarily pay shipping expenses. Chicken Cholera.?I have successfully used this simple remedy for years, and never fai]ed to cure a sick fowl, if the medicine was given before the bird was in the last stages of the disease, when no remedy will cure. Boil three ounces of green white ash bark in two quarts of water. After it cools, mix corn meal with it until it is of the consistency for proper feeding. Then add a teaspoonful of cayenne and a tablespoonful of black pepper to from one to two quarts of the feed, and force the fowls to eat it. It will cure every time. The chicken cholera is a diarrhea, and the bark and pepper act as astringents. Most of the so-called chicken cholera and gapes in little chickens, are caused by drinking water which stands in the poultry yard and the barnyard. These diseases can be largely obviated by having the land well drained add perfectly smooth, so that no water can stand on it after rains, and by keeping pure fresh water where the fowels can drink at will. ?Martha E. Norris, Cedarville, W. Va. A Poultry Farm of Size.?It May prove a matter of surprise to state that Mississippi has a $100,000 poultry farm. Here is the proof: "The second largest poultry farm in the United States," says the Bay VVaveland Commercial Pamphlet, "is located fifteen miles from Bay St Louis. 5,000 laying hens ply their vocation, 1,500 ducks and as many turkeys are a portion of the enterprise. Twenty to thirty 600 and 800 egg incubators are in constant use. This alone demonstrates the success of the poultry enterprise. Commenting, the Sea Coast Echo says : When the pamphlet in question was being prepared it was a rule to make no exaggerations, and no statement tbat could not be fully sustained upon investigation. The poultry farm located at Bryant's, on the Louisville and Nashville line, was established a few years aeo at a cost of $100,000. It is one of the greatest and most interesting. Imagine a place where eggs are gathered daily by wheelbarrows full!" How To Transfer Bees.?Bees never attack when their stomachs are filled with honey or other liquid sweets. This is their normal condition when swarming, and, therefore, are then harmless, and also when returning ladened to their hives. Neither do they attack when thoroughly frightened. We frighten bees by blowing smoke among them or by rapping rather violently on their hives. When bees are alarmed in their hives by smoke or cuncussion, their first impulse is to fill their honey bags from ii I *r> _ l; a. 1 l tneir comos. r>ees in a nive mat is constantly being rapped against will in a few minutes rush boldly out from among their combs into an empty skip or box set over their place of exit from the hive. To Cure Collar Galls.?At night rub air slacked lime on the sore. The next morning apply axle grease or sweet oil. For hardening horses' shoulders nothing equals a strong tea made by steeping white oak bark, being careful to peel the bark down to the wood. Apply frequently, say twice a day. Biting The Nails.?This is a habit that should be immediately corrected in children, because it deforms the nails. Dipping the finger ends in some bitter tincture will generally prevent children from putting them iu their mouth. If this fails, each finger should be encased in a stall until the propensity is eradicated. Bed Bug Destroyer.?Mix together 2 ounces of camphor, 4 ounces spirits turpentine, 1 ounce corrosive sublimate and 1 pint of alcohol. Apply with a spring bottom oil can into all cracks and crevices of the bedstead, after which all cracks and crevices should be filled with hard soap. Lemon Cake.?One and a half cups sugar, one cup of butter, half a cup of milk, two and a half cups flour, three eggs, half a teaspoonful of soda, the juice and grated rind of one lemon. l Miscellaneous Reading.

He said that for 20 minutes the rain poured down faster than he had ever been seen in that neighborhood. Fences were washed away, and the ground washed and cut up in a bad shape. Much damage was done to growing crops. Big and Little Mitchel creek overflowed their banks and the water was a raging torrent from hill to hill. Union's delegation to the Louisville re-union left on the 10 a. m. train Tuesday. The following composed the delegation : M. B. Lee, R. W. Tinsley, J. G. Long, V. Friend, W. H. Gault, A. B.

They were a jolly, good-natured crowd and we hope they will have a pleasant trip. Mr. Tinsley says they expect to take the whole thing in, but will manage to get back here in time for the municipal election. A considerable number of our citizens went down to Strothers Sunday night. They got an excellent view of the eclipse.

The second section was a long one and was well filled with old vets from Columbia and Charleston. There wern 150 or more abroad. One of the coaches bore a banner: "Camp Hampton, No. 839." The Hampton vets wore pretty badges made from palmetto leaves in the shape of a palmetto tree attached to a ribbon. it was our pleasure to nave a short chat with Governor McSweeny at the depot Tuesday morning. He was on his way to Louisville. In the conversation he stated he had used his best judgment in the Union smallpox matter to avoid any trouble. He did not think it would be advisable to use any harsh measures. That might have possibly resulted in someone's death. He was very much surprised at the board's statement that he was more interested in his election than in the enforcement of the law. That such matters were always referred to the state board of health with a request to make a report on the situation to him. That this had been done in the Union ] case as in all others of the state, and ' he supposed that everything had been amicably arranged, after reading Dr. Evans's report, which was published, and nothing further heard from Union. , The resolutions of the board of health were very much of a surprise to him. He spoke very calmly and dispassionately and exhibited not the slightest feeling of ill will toward the board. CHEROKEE?The Gaffhey Ledger, June 1: We regret that on account of failing health, Mr. Albert Bettis had to give up the management of the county chaingang.

Lee Spake received a letter from him a few days ago, which has given much comfort to Lee's family and friends who had not heard from him in quite awhile. Lee is a member of Company H, Thirty-fourth, U. S. I., and is serving in the Philippines. He says he is standing the service finely and that he thinks his regiment will be sent to the states next Septemper, when we hope Lee will be permitted to visit his home in Cherokee. Rev. J. D. Bailey delivered a lecture before the Limestone college students in the college chapel Wednesday evening. Mr. Bai ley confined himself to what we might call local history, and much of it unwritten. He cited the young ladies to many points of historic interest in Cherokee county and of events leading up to the battle of Cowpens, which he described in detail. Dr. Lodge, in speaking of the lecture, said it was the most concise, instructive and picturesque description of a battle he had ever listened to. Mr. Bailey has consented to deliver another lecture at the college during the next session, which will be a description of the battle of King's Mountain. LANCASTER ? Ledger, June 2: Messrs.

J ? s REVOLT OP THE BOXERS. * J The Antl-Foroign Society That In Placing j the Chinese Government in Peril. New York Sun, Friday. . The grave situation in which the ! Boxers of China have involved not only foreign interests in China, but also their own country, is the result of the past eight months of active hostility on their part against missionaries and their converts. The Boxers began their raids in October last and their movement has grown till they seem to have set the whole of northeast China aflame. The Boxers are avowedly an antiforeign society. Whether or not the society exists in all the provinces it certainly covers a wide area, being strongly organized in Hunan and other central provinces on theYangtse river, as well as in Shan-tung and Pecbili provinces in the northeast of China proper. If the report is true that a force of the Boxers of Hunan are on their way north to re-enforce their brethren in Pecbili, it may be said that the anti foreign activity of this society now extends through China on a line that is 850 miles long. At any rate, the scenes of their numerous murders and outrages within the past eight months extends oyer a territory that measure 350 miles north and south, from southwestern Sban-tung to the neighborhood of Pekin. The width of the territory in which the outrages have been reported varies from about 75 miles in Shan-tung to about 170 miles in the latitude of Tientsin. In other words, as near as can be estimated from the reports as to the localities where the Boxers have murdered . native Christians and destroyed their property or that of the mission stations, this series of outrages has extended over an area of about 30,000 square miles aud the area has been increasing very rapidly within the past few V* CC&9, The most recent report says that the Boxers have killed eight Methodist missionaries. No definite details with regard to these alleged murders have been received. If the report is true they have departed from their policy, which has been to let the missionaries alone. To be sure, a small party of Boxers in December last murdered the ? Rev. Syduey Brooks in Shan-tung; but thiB crime appears to have been committed without the approval of the leaders of the movement. They remembered how promptly Germany | resented the murder of missionaries a little over two years ago and that her wrath was appeased only when China conceded to her a valuable harbor I and great privileges in Shan-tung. The Boxers did not desire early in their offensive operations to incense the powers so far as to cause their direct intervenion for the restoration of order, and so they have waged their ] war upon foreigners only by killing | native Christians and destroying mis- sion property at out-stations, while stopping short of shedding the blood of white men. But the fire they have kindled has 3pread very rapidly in the past month, and they now seem emboldened to defy not only their own government, but the Powers as well. Founded 1842. wi.
