He Was Ready to Die.?In tne eartj Indiana days, when both judges and at torneys literallj' "rode the circuit.' a newly elected judge, noted for hi: lack of personal beauty, was ploddinf along on horseback between two count: seats one fine summer day. rassinj through a piece of woods he was sud . denly confronted by a hunter, who un slung his squirrel rifle from his should er and ordered the horseman to dis mount. Somewhat startled by this peremp tory command and the fact that thi hunter was, if possible, even more de ficient in facial symmetry than him self, the jurist began to remonstrate He was quickly cut short, however, b} the remark: "It's no use talking. I long ago swori that if I ever met a homelier man thar I am, I'd shoot him on the spot!" The judge was quick-witted, and sizing up the situation, he promptlj got off his horse. Folding his arms, h< faced his assailant and said. "If I am any homelier than you are for heaven's sake, do shoot and b< quick about it!" Then came a hearty, mutual laugh and a black bottle, produced from the judge's saddlebags, was duly investigated. After this came self introductions, and the rising jurist gained ar enthusiastic supporter for his future campaigns.?Lippincott's Magazine.

"And if I were to say something tc you that should only be said by persons who are intimately acquainted, and who thoroughly understand each other, you would not take offence?" She thought it rather queer that he should view a simple proposal in this light, but she tremblingly assured him that she would not. "Then, Mabel," he continued, lowering his voice to a quaver, "I apologize for my boldness in saying it, but while I leaned over to turn the page of your music I busted off two of my suspender buttons. Will you sew them on?" And trembling-inwardly, but regaining her outward composure with an effort, the brave girl went into the other room and brought forth the necessary implements. He Took It For a Picnic.?A young Cleveland woman who teaches a Sunday school class told her small flock several Sundays ago about the long journey of the children of Israel on their way to the Promised Land. She described the march of the column through the wilderness and told how the priests walked behind the vanguard hearing their sacred burdens. Last Sunday she thought she would discover how much of this lesson the little fellows remembered. To hei chagrin the first boy she asked remembered nothing about it. "Come, now," she said, "some of you surely remember what the priests carried when they marched through the wilderness." Put not one remembered until she reached little Holly. "Vow.

D. M. Steurna. [Copyright, 1801, by American Press Association.] 10-10. "And the Lord snid. Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?" We must suppose that the lesson committee did the best they knew how in selecting the portions which they have assigned to us for study, but how they ' could be led to omit such a portion as chapter xvii is something of a mystery. " We trust that all tflichers will thiuk it 1 worth while to look at the portions passed over. Last week's lesson showed us Abram made sure, as we supposed, by r the Lord's message that all would be as i God had said, yet in chapter xvi we read that he turned from God to listen to an earthly suggestion, which brought much | trouble into his household and led to an interval of K> years in bis life of which we know nothing. Compare xvi, 1G, and xvii, 1; Jer. xvii, 5. In chapter xvii the 1 Lord appears to him under a new name, the Almighty God (El-Shaddai), the - Mighty God who is all sufficient, cont firming and stating more fully the cove, naut and giving him the token wbjch signified death to the flesh (Coi. ii, 11); giving bjmalso a new name by putting the principal letter of His own name Jeho vah (Jhvh) in the midst of his old name ! Abram. We cannot know the all suffi! ciency of God till we ure willing to have . done with self and walk before Him. Sarai's name is also changed, and Abraham is assured that the time has come and within a year Sarah shall bear to > him the promised son. The visit of the Lord and the two other heavenly ones to , Abraham in the heat of the day, their , acceptance of Abraham's hospitality and the message to Abraham coufirmed to Sarah lead us to the beginning of today's ' lesson. Let the Lord's question to Sarah 1 in verse 14, first clause, ulong with Jer. xxxii, 17, and John xiv, 13. 14, lead us to expect great things from God. i 20, 21. The Lord is a righteous judge i and speaks of Himself here as carefully inquiring into matters. He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes neither reprove after the hearing of His ears. ! but with righteousness shnll He judge ! (Isa. xi. 3, 4). Everything on earth cries ' to Him, and He hears and will in due time see to it. Note carefully Gen. iv, 1U: Ex. iii, 7: Hub. ii, 11; Jas. v, 4; also creation's groans in Rom. viii, 22. God hears it all. 22. "Abraham 6tood yet before the Lord." The other two visitors went toward Sodom, and their visit to Lot and his rescue by them are recorded in the next chapter, references to which we find . from the Lord Himself in Luke xvii, 28 32. Abraham standing before God makes us think of Elijah and Elisba and also of Gabriel (I Kings xvii, 1; II Kings iii, 14; ' Luke i, 19). To appropriate and live in t the power of Ps. xvi, 8, is a very proper . anil helpful thing to do. remembering ^ that the Lord seeth not as man seeth. for , man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh upon the heart (1 Sam. xvi, 7). He says. "Lo, I am with you alway." I 23-20. "Shall not the Judge of all the ; earth do right?" In the rest of our les son we see Abraham as the intercessor. n3 we afterward see Moses, Samuel, Daniel and others, all typical of Him who ever liveth to make intercession for us ' (Rom. viii, 34; Heb. vii, 25). We read that Abraham drew near, and it is our > privilege to draw near with a true heart. I in full assurance of faitn, nnu to conic >j boldly unto the throne of grace, that we , may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Ileb. x. 22: iv, 10). We ' may come not only for ourselves, but for others. We may forget ourselves and I live chiefly for others, and the more we I renounce self and live for others the more we shall be like Him who never pleased Himself nor sought His own will nor His own glory (Rom. xv, 3: John vi. 38; viii, 50). By His precious blood He has made 1 us nigh who once were far off and has . given us access to God at all times (Eph. t ii, 13: Rom. v, 2), with such blessed a.sj suranees for our encouragement as John , xiv, 13, 14; xv, 7, 16; Mark xi, 24: I John \ V, 14, 15. 27-32. Fearing that there may not be 50 righteous in Sodom, Abraham eontin! ues to plead that the Lord will spare the city for the sake of 45, 40, 30, 20. 10. and the Lord said that He would spare > the city if ten righteous people were found in it. Six times Abraham pleads. Some wonder how it might have been if ; he had still kept on, but it would appear that Lot was the only righteous man in the city, and we would not have known that he was righteous but for II Pet. ii, 7, S. It would seem that his wife and i two daughters were delivered for his sake and that he was delivered for Abraham's sake (chapter xix. 12. 29). That ' the righteous by their intercession can 1 bring blessing to others is evident from ' the record of the centurion, the woman of Tyre and Sidan, the four friends (Mnth. viii, 10; ix, 2; xv. 2S). That there may be such a state of affairs that even the prayers of the righteous cannot avail we learn from Jer. xv, 1; Ezek. xiv. 14. 20. where we see that such men as Moses. ? samuei, rsoan. uaniei or .iod coum nm - bring deliverance. Abraham did not I plead on the ground of any goodness in j himself, for he spoke o1 himself as but dust and ashes (verse 27). but only on the ground of the great need and the right' eousuess of God. We may learn a good ^ lesson in pleading from Jeremiah, who said. "O Lord, though our iniquities testi? fy against us. do Thou it for Thy name's . sake" (Jer. xiv, 7). In Jesus' name is r our great strength. 33. "And the Lord went His way as soon as He had left communing with ' Abraham, and Abraham returned unto 1 his place." How near heaven is brought ' to earth in these interviews of God with Abraham and others! And it is the priv1 ilege of every believer to walk with God ? in constant communion (Gen. v, 24: vi. !>; , Mic. vi, 8). It is to be feared that the majority of the righteous are like Ix>t in Sodom, so mixed up with the ungodly that they bear no testimony for God. ? while but few are like Abraham at liet bron, living nbovo the world in fellowship with God. for this is a narrow way, and . few there be that find it. Let every child r of God remember that He has redeemed us to be a people for nis own possession. 1 set apart for Himself, not conformed to this world (Titus ii, 14. It. V.: Ps. iv. 3: ' Rom. xii, 1, 2), and let us trust Ilim to make us willing (Ps. ex. 3) to be all that 4 He desires us to be, living no longer unto I this world or unto ourselves, but unto Him alone. gJtecfHanrottS grading.

His daughter, Miss Esther, and Master Arthur Schlff went with him to arrange for the remainder ot the family, who will go in a few days.

This makes the second circuit judge to go to the mountains this summer. Judge Ernest Gary has been at Hendersonville Last Thursday evening, from 9 to 12 o'clock, a very enjoyable "at home" was given by Miss Bessie Lowry, of Lowrysville, complimentary to her cousins, Misses Boyce and Brownlee. Prom 9.30 to 10.30 was taken up with the feature of the evening, advertisement guessing. The first prize was awarded to Dr. R. C. Brown, and the booby prize to Mr. R. C. Guy. Those present then repaired to the dining hall, where dainty refreshments, consisting of ices, cake and fruits, were served. The pansy was the flower of the evening We have had many big rains this year; but the rain that fell yesterday afternoon and last night smashed all records. We have heard no one say that he remembers ever to have seen a bigger rain. The rain about town yesterday afternoon cer tamiy was rar greater man any m&?. has fallen here In many years. It went over culverts, covered bottoms, and surrounded houses where water had never been known to rise before. One hard rain fell after another nearly all night, and in some places in the county the heaviest rain fell during the night. Colonel Culp, who can remember as far back as most of our citizens, says he has no recollection of ever seeing so much rain fall in the same length of time. The Southern railway was washed out near Solicitor Henry's, where It had never been reached by water before. We have heard of some bridges being injured, but have not general Information from the county. CHEROKEE. Gaffney Ledger, August 6: The season for revival meetings is now upon us. A very interesting meeting is now in progress at Shlloh, in White Plains township, which is being conducted by Rev. M. S. Samples, pastor of the church, assisted by Rev. W. T. Thompson, of this city, who has been doing the preaching since Wednesday. Twenty-one new additions to the church has been made up to Sunday, and they were baptized Sunday afternoon. Interest | in the meeting is still high. A meeting j is also running at Beaverdam, con ducted by Rev. R. J. Tate, and we learn that it is being attended by large and deeply interested congregations. We hope that these meetings will result in much good throughout the community. As the result of too much "booze," a Negro on Mr. Luther Sarratt's place, a few miles above the city, got a oullet in his leg Saturday night, from a pistol in the hands of another Negro. Our information is to the effect that the "other" Negro was full of moonshine and unable to navigate in any certain direction, and while others were in the act of escorting him to the bosom of his family, he proceeded to perforate one of them. Whether the shooting was accidental or intentional, we did not learn. Dr. Brown, of this place, was sent for, and he went up and extracted the ball, which had entered just above the knee. On the same night, at Mr. J. J. Magness' store, at Grassy Pond, a young white man and a Negro had a little difficulty in which the Negro received a gash over the top of his head and the white man was struck with a rock. As soon as the Negro threw the rock he ran. Some one started after him, but was caught and held by a colored woman, and the rockthrower escaped. The above is the story of the fight as told to us by a gentleman from that neighborhood. T A XTr? A OTPD Ledger, August 7: On Sunday last, in the Primus section, Dan Duncan, colored, was shot by Peter Phillips, colored, the ball entering his face below the right eye and passing through the brain. Duncan dropped instantly to the floor and was never conscious from the moment he was shot. He died the following day. Phillips was handling his pistol and claims that it went off accidentally. He was on his way to town to surrender to the sheriff when he was met by the deputy sneriff, who had started to the scene. He is now in jail. The facts adduced at the inquest were about as above stated. Duncan was only about 18 years of age Owing to a washout on the S. C. & Ga. Ex. railroad, this side of Riverside yesterday, the mails had to be transferred to the freight train at that point yesterday. Of course this caused considerably delay. They hope to be running through today We learn that on Friday afternoon last, Mr. Dud Love was seriously stabbed in the abdomen, near the naval, by Mr. John Hinson. Mr. Love was returning to his home from preaching at White Bluff when he and Mr. Hinson met and the cutting occurred. A physician was summoned and dressed the wound, which was about one inch long and extended to the cavity On Springs' Parker place, near the Foster X roads, on Saturday afternoon last, Wm. Bailey and John Davis, both colored, became involved in a difficulty about a report concerning the wife of one of the parties, when Bailey used his knife, cutting Davis severely in the arm and stabbing him to the cavity in the breast. A warrant has been issued for Bailey, who fled immediately after the , difficulty Died, on Saturday last, of fever, Mr. Lemuel Rollings, son of Mr. Joseph Rollings, of the Zion neighborhood, aged about 25 years Mari ried, on Sunday last, at Union Baptist church, by flew R. E. Small, Rev. Wm. Estrldge, of the Flint Ridge section, < and Atlas Pearl Rlaekmon. dautrhter of Mr. Wm, M. Blackmon, all of this i county In our last issue we reported considerable damage done by the hall In several sections of the county, Thursday night. We thought the damage was great, but It was only slight when compared with what was done by 1 hall In the vicinity of Westville, just i over the line in Kershaw county, the same night. We are told that hailstones could be gathered up by wagon ! loads from the ground the following day, and that on at least nine farms in the vicinity of Westville, the owners i cannot hope to gather as much as 25 pounds of seed cotton per acre. Nothing but the bare stalks are left standing. Some of the heaviest losers are Messrs. Thomas Cauthen, James Cauthen, and Joseph Gardner. Mr. Gardner has one field of 16 acres in cotton, from which he generally gathers about 14 bales, but our informant stated that it would be impossible for him to make as much as five pounds per acre on it this year. The storm extended on to Horn's mill, about 15 miles from Westville. The same night our old friend, Mr. W. S. Horton, who lives near Kershaw, had his cotton crop badly injured by hail, along with several of his neighbors. MORGAN VS. HAMPTON. Great Men Sometimes Differ on Important Matters. General Hampton ventures "the assertion that not a Democratic senator at Washington will say that McLaurin is justified in styling himself a Democrat." It is singular that General Hampton did not post himself before venturing to speak on the subject. In all of the votes he cast in the senate which are objected to. Senator McLaurin had more or less Democratic company. He was by no means the only Democrat who voted the way he did. Manifestly, other Democratic senators who voted as McLaurin did must consider him a Democrat. But if direct testimony will have any effect upon General Hampton, he can have it. General John T. Morgan, a gallant Confererate soldier, the ablest man in the senate, a statesman who will compare favorably with any this country has produced: voted as McLaurin did and was triumphantly re-elected in Alabama, as McLaurin will be in South Carolina. For General Hampton's benefit, we quote the following extracts from an interview with Senator Morgan: "I consider Senator McLaurin one of j the ablest men in the senate. He is; young, he is modest: but he is very, able. I cannot think of one instance1 ; where McLaurin has had his Democra-' cy challenged. One may vote for or. against subsidies?but all Democrats in the senate vote for a subsidy at one time or another?and still be a true Democrat. I consider the man progressive who faces each and every public question as it conies up, and tries j to solve it for himself No one can ! say that this man is not a good Democrat or that man is not because he may* vote for or against some bill in the United States senate or in the lower | house which may appear to involve dl- | rectly the Democratic or Republican principles."?Columbia Record. tti.i.mav axd thr Braver Creek Picnic.?The Yorkville Enquirer expresses regret that there was no "newspaper man" present at the recent "hie picnic at Liberty Hill, down in Lancaster county." "to write up the whole story in detail." Our esteemed contemporary is mistaken in more than one particular. The picnic was not held in Lancaster county, but in Kershaw county, at whatj is known as the Warrenton Place. Norj Is Liberty Hill in this county, butr in Kershaw, about five miles from! where the picnic was held. And. according to ^>ur information, our contemporary is mistaken in its statement of what Senator Tillman, one of the speakers, said at the picnic. The Enquirer says: "The senator made a characteristic speech, discussing in his own way not exactly national issues: but the alleged sins of the national majority, and he took occasion also to address himself to the doings of Senator McLaurin, throwing upon that gentleman his customary abuse and denunciation. In the course I of his talk the senator took occasion also to speak of the general ignorance of the Liberty Hill people, telling them that they were backwoodsmen who did not know enough to read the daily papers." A reliable gentleman of this place, who was present, and heard Tillman's speech, informs us that the senator said nothing whatever that could possible be construed into a reflection upon the intelligence of his hearers: that, on the contrary, he was highly complimentary in his remarks. He certainly did not speak of the "general igrtf fVit. T.ihprtv Hill neople." for he was not addressing: a Liberty Hill audience. Besides, Tillman himself knows that the people of Liberty Hill are proverbial for their intelligence, culture and hospitality, and had he been addressing a strictly Liberty Hill audience, he would not have dared to insult those people as he is charged with having done. Barring his ability, we are not an adntirer of Tillman and hi3 methods, but we believe in "giving the devil his due" ?hence this correction of our contemporary's misstatements.?Lancaster Review. SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS. JohnMtone In n Candidate. Spartanburg Journal: A gentleman from Newberry, who was In the city today, Is an enthusiastic George Johnstone man for the senate. He said: "Johnstone will be in the race next year as a simon pure Democrat, and will make it hot for those who are otherwise. He is already loading up on ammunition and getting in shape for the contest. Johnstone's friends rely on his splendid oratorical and forensic powers to bring enough strength to him to elect him. Those who have heard T?V.nef/*r,o cnoo Ir Irnrtw that hp is a whole show by himself and can draw a crowd anywhere. As a stump speaker he is the equal of Tillman in many respects. He served one term in congress and made a fine record there. He entered the body with Bryan and Bailey and the three attracted much attention. Bailey is now a United States senator, Bryan the editor of a newspaper, and Johnstone a private citizen with senatorial aspirations." Tower of TrimteeH. Answering a question from James B. Davis, county superintendent of education of Greenville, the attorney general says: "You request to be advised upon the following question: 'Is it legal for trustees for any school year to make contracts for teachers to serve during the school, year succeeding the year in which their commissions expire, and, if so, are their successors bound to execute their contracts?' School trustees being creatures of statute law, have no power not specifically delegated by law, and such powers are strictly construed. No authority is given to public school trustees in the school law of this state to elect teachers beyond their term of office, nor can such power be implied. It follows, of course, than any election beyond their term would be void. Otherwise a set of trustees now in office could contract with a teacher for an unlimited period, and such a teacher would be free to act regardless of the wishes or the welfare of the people." Three Killed by Lightning. Columbia special of Tuesday to Tne News and Courier: This afternoon, between 2 and 3 o'clock, on a farm belonging to Mr. W. A. Clark, of this city, about seven miles from Columbia, on the Bluff road, lightning ended the lives of three persons, badly stunned two other persons and killed three mules. It seems that Ed Owens, a well known Negro, who was In charge of the farm, was In the field, working with his team and the others, when a rain storm came ur>. All took refuge under a cedar tree. Soon lightning struck the tree and Instantly killed Owens. 53 years of age: Peter Cameron, a Neero, 22 years of age. and Laura Alston, colored. 22 vears of age. The mules were also found dead In their tracks. None of the bodies were mutilated, although Owens's shoes were torn from his feet. Boh Williams, another Negro, was badly stunned, and It was at first thought that Williams was also killed: but he finally recovered. Owens was living on the place with a white woman whom be married some years ago. He was hefore the war owned by the woman's parents. Laura A'ston leaves a husband and one child.
