Earning His Fee. "Speaking of fees," said the country lawyer, "I well remember the easiest one I ever earned. The trouble began at one of the usual Saturday night auctions, when Bill Jones and Abe Smith, who had been at loggerheads for some time, began bidding on an old floV> oroto Tho hnv wasn't worth a single dollar; but the bidding ran up, a nickel at a time, until it was finally knocked down to Smith for $3.25. "Hold on,' says Jonfcs, 'I bid $3.25 on that crate myself and I intend to have it.' Then they had a squabble over it, but Smith paid the money, loaded the box on his wagon and drove home. "About two days afterward Jones came into my office. " 'Hello,' said he, 'I've got a job for you. You was down to the auction Saturday, and saw me bid on that fish box. Now I want that box and I intend to have it if it cost me $100. Do you think you could get it for me?' " 'I guess so,' I replied. " 'How much will it cost?' he says. " 'About $25,' says I.

I was in the insurance business, too, in those days and Smith's insurance had about expired. Smith was home and I told him that I had come to look over the buildings, as I supposed he wanted to renew the insurance. He said he did, so we walked about. I kept my eyes open and pretty soon I saw the flsh box. "'Ha!' I exclaimed, 'the very thing I want!' " 'What's that?* he asked. " 'Why, that box there.' " 'Oh, that old flsh crate. I nearly got into a row over that thing, and I just bought it to spite Jones.' " 'What will you take for It?' I inquired. " 'Well, I gave $3.25 for it, and you can have it for that figure.' " 'Load it in,' I said, 'and the money's yours.' "I took It to the office and put In in the back room. A couple of days later Jones walked in. " 'Well, what luck?' he inquired.

" 'Well, sir, I would have spent $100 before I would have been beaten,' said Jones as he walked out, carrying the box and smiling his complete satisfaction."?New York Sun. A Point He Forgot.?It was in a small town up the state. A young lawyer, who was counsel for the prisoner in a murder trial, was cross-examining an old farmer, the chief witness of the prosecution. The testimony of the farmer went to show the time at - which he saw the accused pass a field where he was working. "Now, my man," he commenced, "you declare that you saw the prisoner pass your potato field at 12 o'clock. How did you know it was 12 o'clock. "Kind of innard feelin' that it was dinner time," drawled the old farmer. "I don't carry no watch when out diggin* pertaters.

"Let me anticipate any objections you might have, Mr. Brockman. I am of good family, I am not dissipated, I have a good business and am abundantly able to support a wife. All I ask is?"

During a forced march in the summer of 1862 he stopped to consult with one of his general officers. The entire command had been passed and as Jackson and his officers rode forward to rejoin the former discovered a private up a persimmon tree. Asked by the commander why he was so far in the rear, the private replied: "Eatin' 'simmons." "Persimmons!" roared Jackson. "Why, they're not even ripe yet." "Like 'em ^rgpn just now," explained the soldier. "And why?" asked Jackson, softenino-ji little with amusement at the fel low's laconic answer.

The teacher started with the head and asked what was the feminine of "hero." Number one shook her head. It passed to two. She missed it: so did three.

Rock Hill Herald, November 28: Rev, Sam Wlther8poon, colored, whose home was about a quarter of a mile northwest of the old Oakland pavilion and who developed the disease of smallpox last Thursday, died Friday after we had gone to press. The remains were buried Friday night. There is still another smallpox case in town, the patient being Hannah Jones, colored. The inmates of the house in which she lives are in quarantine and there is not much fear of /the disease spreading from there.rTTT. The old soldiers of the "Lost Cause" will hear with much regret the news of the death of Mr. C. Walker McFadden, which occurred last Saturday at his home in the Landsford neighborhood, caused by old age and a general breaking down of health. He was about 80 years of age and was a veteran of the Confederacy. Enter ing the service in 1861 as a member of the Sixth South Carolina Volunteers, he rose to the position of first lieutenant in company A. He served faithfully until he lost a leg at the battle of Sharpsburg. A man of fine character, gallantry and cleverness being predominating traits, he was universally beloved. For several years he was treasurer of his county and was a good officer A force of about fifty hands is engaged in enlarging the pond at the Arcade mill so as to provide for a greater water supply. The pond will be increased to about double its present size. The object is to furnish more water for the boilers, humidifiers, used to moisten the atmosphere, and for a new slasher system, the room for which is now being erected, the ultimate intention of the company being to increase the machinery plant about 10 per cent. The Arcade is doing well and its affairs are in very satisfactory condition. The waste mill, owned and operated by President R. T. Fewell, its site being near the Arcade mill, is proving a splendid success. The machinery is all of the best patterns and it is well managed in all its details. Its present output is for use in mattresses and orders for carload lots are being received. An addition to the mill will be erected and it will be supplied with machinery for the manufacture of other materials for which there is constant demand. Not much has been said about the waste mill, but its success so far is very satisfactory Mrs. Julia D. Izard, of Walterboro, has decided to make Rock Hill her future place of residence, and she and her daughters, Misses Mamie una lutmic, are expected to arrive in the city today or tomorrow. They will make their home with Mr. A. C. Izard. Their household effects have been shipped and are expected to arrive in a day or two Dr. H. W. Bays filled the pulpit at St. John's Methodist church last Sunday morning. This will be perhaps his last sermon to this congregation before he leaves for conference, and the doctor delivered a message which made a profound impression upon his hearers. His discourse was thoughtful, impressive, suggestive, powerful, and was presented with great earnestness and eloquence. CHEROKEE. Gaflfney Ledger,' November 25: Mrs. Etta Powell, wife of Mr. J. C.

Myrtle, a little daughter of County Treasurer and Mrs. T. H. Llttlejohn, ran against a baby carriage that had been left in the walk in the yard, and fell and dislocated one of her arms Mr. R. M. Gaffney, the only agent the Southern Railway has ever had at their depot in this city, he having held the position for nearly thirty years, has resigned and will be succeeded by Mr. A. L. Palmer, of the state of Iowa. Mr. Gaffney is one of our foremost citizens and has made a most careful and enterprising officer. He has always been as accommodating to the public as was consistent with the interest of the railway company. While he always recognized the rights of the public, the interests of his company was his main thought, and faithfully has he guarded and protected them. His many friends here would be glad for him to retain his old post, but all recognize that after so long a tour of "duty so faithfully performed" he is entitled to a rest, and all wish him happiness and success in any new field of business he may enter.

Lantern, November 25: State Con' stable Howie heard a rumor of a large shipment of whisky to pass through 1 this city last night.

There were fifty or sixty kegs of it Chief Taylor arrested a Negro by the name of Andy Brice, alias Henry Johnson, for stealing a coat. It developed in police court this morning that Mr. D. J. Macauley had given the Negro pants and shirt and he took a coat to make thfe suit complete. The coat had some valuable papers in it, and neither the papers nor coat has been recovered. It was learned that Andy was wanted in Fairfield county for larceny. The mayor gave Andy thirty days on the gang or a $10 fine The Knights of Pythias recently bought the Odd Fellows building In the valley from Mr. M. S. Lewis. This lodge found its present hall too small to accommodate its members. They will refurnish and improve the lately purchased building and intend making it one of the finest and most commodious lodge rooms in the upper part of South Carolina. The lodge is \ery popular and is growing rapidly Saturday afternoon Mr. -Tom Hudson was shot accidentally by Mr. Andy Hafner. Mr. Hafner had been in town and had had his gun repaired. He was very much intoxicated. He and Mr. Hudson were going along and Mr. Hafner proposed swapping mules. Mr. Hafner was swinging his gun around in a very careless manner when it was dischargd in some way, part of the charge entering the back and shoulders of Mr. Hudson. Some of the shot also struck the mules that were hitched to the wagon which caused them to run away; but they were stopped before any damage was done. No harsh words passed between the two men, and the shooting was altogether accidental. Mr. Hudson's wound, though exceedingly painful, is not likely to prove fatal. The unfortunate accident occurred about five miles from town, near Mr. William Hardin's on the road that leads to the Grant settlement. LANCASTER. Ledger, November 26: Married, by Rev. C. R.

An Actual Occurrence of the I<nte War In a Virginia Town. The following1 tale has probaoiy Deen often repeated to the oldest inhabitants of Warrenton, but for the benefit of those who have never heard it, and for those who would like to hear it again, we put this humorous war-time incident before the public in the graphic way in which it was described by Mr. Raphael Semmes Payne, formerly of Warrenton: In the spring of 1862, when General Pope's big army, 100,000 strong was encamped around Warrenton, Va., Mosby and his dare devil rangers were engaged in a hazardous game of chess with the Yankees, which abounded with brilliant and strategic moves on the part of the wary guerrillas. So well versed were those gay knights of the sword and saddle in the art of surprise and capture that the war department at Washington is said to have set a ransom upon their heads. Bred in a virile atmosphere, that youthful, impetuous bands of troopers knew every foot of their romantic region. They had fished in its picturesque streams and hunted the wild fox over its mountain spurs and through its beautiful valleys. With a good horse under them, a brace of pistols in their boots and Yankees spoils as an incentive no enterprise was too perilous; to execute Mosby's plans they would run the risk of being captured or shot, with an abandon that was as debonair as it was reckless. Although Mosby felt that his capture 1 meant indignity and probably death, instead of keeping under cover he grew bolder and continued to harass, circum1 vent and puzzle the enemy by his ubiquity and with such arrogant persistf ence that Pope became irritated and determined upon a wholesale arrest of * 1 - nf fVtcx nolfrhhnr mt; mate puyuiauun hood, whom he suspected of being in ( league with Mosby's command. All the men and boys, as young as 15, ' had gone to the front, leaving literally ' only 'the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker" to protect and pro? vide for the women and children of Warrenton. General Pope finally grew very angry and issued orders for the arrest of all s suspects. The provost marshal formi ally convened his court and detailed a ! guard. The first prisoner brought in ) was a respectable farmer named Wolf, i who resided a few miles from town. The next culprit called to the bar responded to the appellation of John Fox, a shopkeeper in Warrenton. The judge remarked with a smile: "This is a co-. incidence to capture a wolf and a fox in the same trap." The guard then produced a quiet, inoffensive-looking citizen, who called himself Rabbit, whereupon the court frowned and demanded, "Your right name, sir!" "I speak the truth," replied Rabbit, "that's my name. I am a shoemaker by trade, and live in this town." The next suspect was a comical looking little man with a moon-like face, waggish gray eyes, and a voice like a cross-cut saw. He wore homespun clothes and chewed tobacco with gusto. When asked for his pedigree he struck a theatrical attitude and spoke for the benefit of the soldiers: "Yer, honor, my name's Bob Coons, I'm the auctloner of this ere town, and I can prove It by reliable citizens." An uproar of laughter followed this sally, and the judge tried to look indignant. "You fellows are ridiculing my authority. We shall see who has the last laugh in this mater." Coons established his identity, and as there was no longer any doubt as to his name, residence and occupation, the court again became tranquil and resumed its labors. "What is your name?" was asked of a Hebrew, who replied that it was Baer, and his occupation that of a merchant. The judge was nonplussed, but appreciating the humor of the situation, exclaimed with good-natured surprise: "Have we gotten into a den of wild animals?" But the climax of the fun was reached when the last man went on the stand. He was a local character, and the popular boniface of Warrenton. When he swore that his name was Louis Lyon, and moreover, was proprietor of the "Lion House," there was such an outburst of hilarity that the judge lost his dignity, proclaimed that he was not in 4-v.o mannuprip. and adioumed the court I sine die. The sequel to the comedy was the release of the prisoners and a big laugh on General Pope throughout the rank and file of both armies.?Warrenton, Va., True-Index.

THE YORKVILLE ENQUIRER Is distinctively a York county paper, edited and published for York county readers. It is the aim of the publlshers that the paper shall fill a field that Is filled by no other paper. The first ' Importance is attributed to a correct presentation of the local news of York county, giving1 especial attention to all ' that is of interest In the social, rellg ious, educational, agricultural, commer cial and industrial affairs of this Imme' diate section. Next after York county, ' follows the same Interest in the affairs ' of the counties immediately surround ing. After that, Is published the more *1+ wfttra nf f ViQ of O fa fhp Tift t.i ATI lllipui laiU lie TT p VJ. iUV DM*VV, and the world, all in a condensed, but comprehensive form. The paper Is ls. sued twlce-a-week In order that Its leaders may be kept In closer touch with every-day developments, and each ' Issue is intended to contain a condensed ? synopsis of all the more important events current since the preceding1 issue. The publishers give especial attention to accuracy, comprehenslbility and promptness, and try to make a paper that will enable busy people to keep correctly informed on the important events of the day. without having to do unnecessary reading. In addition to close attention to the news, the literary feature of THE ENQUIRER is also important. It aims to instruct, entertain and inform. It seeks to present nothing except of a wholesome, elevating character, that will sustain the old and inspire the young in the higher ideals of life and duty. In all of the features outlined, THE ENQUIRER excels all other South Carolina newspapers, and has but few rivals in the entire country. These results are the product of years of experience and of ceaseless toll, as well as of heavy expense, the like of which is not approached by any other weekly or semi-weekly newsaper in the south. In printing only what should be printed and leaving out what should not be printed, it is without a superior, ar.d the highest ambition of the publishers is to continue to sustain and upbuild the reputation the paper enjoys in all its most praiseworthy features.
