Chicago Women's Foot.
When George Ade went from the
literary field of La Fayette, Ind., to
tread the primrose path of dalliance
with all sorts of things on the staif
of the "Chicago Record," he met a native
lady writer of that town of Pierian
Springs and Olympian Heights.
She wasn't as young as the used to
be, but she was quite as pretty as she
had ever been, and her devotion to

ic. He was a good thing at first, voluntarily.
because he wanted to help
struggling genius, but the lady was so
persistent that she became a nuisance, J
and Mr. Ade, in his efforts to break
away, at times became actually rude.
One day he went cheerily to his
desk, for he had not seen her In a long,
long time, and the hope that she had
gone to a better world above made
him resigned, If not really and truly
happy. But it was not to be. He
found her waiting for him. She greeted
him effusively, and he didn't reciprocate,
but he had to be polite, and
ask her where she had been all this
"Why, don't you know," she said, "I
had a fever for three weeks, and It
has taken me six weeks to get on my
"Six weeks?" exclaimed Mr. Ade In
"Yes, Indeed; six whole weeks."
"Well," he responded, as if thoroughly
convinced. "I . have always heard
that Chicago women had large feet, but
I didn't suppose they were quite so
large as that."?The Reader.
Aunt Martha's Mistake.?She was
sixty-five years old. It was her first
visit to New York, or to any other
city, large or small, and for weeks after
she got home she did little but talk
about the wonders of the metropolis.
Finally the nephew who had accompanied
her on her trip said: "Well,

"The lace-knitting machine," replied
Aunt Martha promptly.
The nephew was mystified. "The
lace-knitting machine?" he said.
"Why, where did you see that? I
don't remember any knitting machine."
Aunt Martha was surprised at that.
"You don't?" she said. "Why, it was
right there in the suburban station
where we took the cars the day we
came home."
After persistent questioning he
caught her meaning. "Good Lord!" he
said. Then he laughed most disrespectfully.
He knew he ought to be
ashamed of himself for doing it, but
he really couldn't help it, for what
Aunt Martha had mistaken for a laceknitting
machine was a telegraph instrument
which kept up its steady

beside it knit just as steadily on a

delusion of sight and sound.
Wanted a Pattern.?A ragged
Irishman was charged in a London
court a short time ago with tendering
a counterfeit shilling in payment for
a penny loaf.
Though forlorn In aspect, he was not
destitute of that shrewdness which is
characteristic of his countrymen. He
stated that he was sent for the loaf
by a person at a public house close by,
who gave him the coin to pay for it,
and that on discovering it was not
good he bought the coin for three
The magistrate?How came you to
buy the shilling after you had discovered
it was a bad one?
The prisoner, with much apparent
gravity, replied:
"Sure, then, your honor, I bought it
so that if I should happen to have a
bad one offered to me I might know
it by looking at the one I had with
There was a burst of laughter, and
the follow was dismissed with a caution.
When He Did Better.?A celebrated
bishop once sat through a long
and atrocious sermon on a hot summer
morning. With an immovable countenance
he listened to metaphors that
were mixed, pathos that was bathos
and humor that was sad. The preachPr
was a vnnth lust nnf nf pnllppp?a
very conceited youth. He bellowed
through his sermon at the top of his
lungs. His gestures were violent
enough to break his arms. At every
climax he fixed the bishop with his
eye to see if a suitable Impression had
been made.
And at the end of the service this
young snip swaggered up to the bishop
and said:
"I fancy I did rather well today, sir.
Don't you think so?"
"Yes," returned the bishop; "but you
did better last year."
"Last year!" said the young man.
"Why, I didn't preach at all last year."
"That's the reason," said the bishop,
with a smile.
Hero of New Orleans.?Henry
Smith Pritchett, president of the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
thinks the word "science" Is
much abused these days. He scoffs at
Christian "science," the "science" of
palmistry, the "science" of mind reading.
and other fads of that sort.
Everything mysterious or seemingly
so, he says, is denominated "science,"
and to illustrate his point he is fond
of telling this story:
"In a certain Boston school one day
recently I listened to a teacher ask a
small boy. 'Who won the battle of New
"'Why, Jim Corbett. of course,' was
the ready answer.
"The teacher, not placing Corbett's
name, and thinking to set the boy
right, questioned: 'How did that happen?'
" 'Well, he won,' replied the boy, 'because
he had more "science" than the
other fellow.'"

Lantern, July 23: A telephone message

that Dr. B. E. Kell's condition is growing

times is unconscious. It will be remembered
that his left side was paralyzed

Mr. Archie Owens says he has the best
cotton crop he has had for five years.
The secret is that he planted a small
crop and kept right up with It. Besides
this he planned his work so that
his plowing was interrupted by the
rain to a-very small extent Chester
ball players are in demand. Mr. W. K.
Green wired for Mr. William Latimer
to come to Greenwood Tuesday to play
ball, where the teams of Honea Path
and Greenwood were battling against
each other. On Monday tne greenwood
men were defeated, on Tuesday
they were defeated again, but on Wednsday
they succeeded In. winning the
game by a score of 13 to 5. Mr. Latimer
played short stop. He returned
home on the $^rly Seaboard yesterday
morning, having been awake the entire
night Mr. J. Monroe Grant of
Hal8ellville, having heard of an assertion
that there are no horse apples
now, and having gotten the impression
that the Lantern said so, determined
to prove the contrary by an argument
stronger than words, and so brought
us two dozen fine specimens to demonstrate
their existence. Mr. Grant's orchard
is just coming into bearing, and
therefore he has a good fruit prospect
in front of him. We did not say anything
about there being no horseapples,
but if this is the way people are
going to refute such statements we
shall be tempted to say that nobody
has a bushel of such apples, that the
cider apples have no Juice in them this
season, that there are not two bushels
of good sound peaches in the county,
that nobody will make a watermelon
weighing forty pounds this year,
thnt ratplounes are a total failure and
that there are not enough young crisp
cucumbers to serve as a relish for

being hauled on the Columbia road,
which Is soon to be macadamized. The
chalngang was moved there this morning
to prepare for the beginning of the
work. A well will be sunk, and the
road will be leveled in places. The
macadamizing will be begun at the
two mile post Instead of at the corporate
limits, and when the reason is assigned,
one can readily see the advantages
of beginning there. The road
will be macadamized a mile each way
and there will be good hard roads over
which to haul the rock from the crusher.
Ledger, Jtfly 25: Colonel Springs has
applied to the town for a franchise to
light the town by electricity. As soon
as the necessary steps can be taken
the matter of granting the franchise
will be submitted to tne quaunea
voters as is now required by law. We
can safely predict there will- be practically
no opposition to granting the
franchise and that in the near future
Lancaster will be abreast of other progressive

C. Clyburn, a native of Lancaster
county, who move^, with his family to
Texas about seventeen years ago, is
here on a visit to his relatives and
many old friends. He is looking well,
weighs 215 pounds, has no gray hairs,
and looks almost as young as he did
seventeen years ago. He has received
many a hearty handshake from the
companions of his boyhood and young
manhood days. He reports crops good
around his home, Flint. Tex., and says
that his corn crop is the finest he has
made since he has been in the "Lone
Star State." He will spend about a
month here and in the county and
hopes to see all his old friends and ac
qualntances before he returns
Mr. Joseph Clark, an aged and well
known citizen, died at his home at
this place last Wednesday, July 22d,
after an illness of several weeks. Mr.
Clark was a native of the county, having
been born in the Pleasant Hill section
in April, 1825, and has lived in
the county all his life. He was admitted
to the practice of law about 1870.
He served as postmaster at this place
for two terms. His widow and four
children, viz.: Mr. W. G. Clark of this
place, Mrs. S. C. Villeneuve of Atlanta,
Ga., Mrs. Callie Green of Bishopvllle,
and Mrs. J. W. Hamet of Kershaw,
survive him. Mr. Clark was a man of
strong intellect and of generous impulses.
He was industrious and frugal
and accumulated a nice property,
which he disposed of by will to his
wife and children. He was a member
of the Methodist church and the funeral
service was conducted from his residence
by his pastor, Rev. W. H.
Hodges, at 9 a. m., Thursday morning,
after which the remains were interred
in the town cemetery with Masonic
honors. Mr. Clark was one of the oldest
Masons in the state, having been

Gastonia Gazette, July 24: Prof.
Lowry Jenkins, principal of the Yorkville
Graded schools, spent Saturday
and Sunday in the city with his sister,
Mrs. J. Y. Miller, on his return from
Knoxville. Tenn., where he has been
attending the summer school at the
University of Tennessee. Accompanied
by Mrs. Miller he left Monday for

Rev. McG. Shields. At a largely attended
meeting of the presbytery in
Lincolnton Tuesday night, the body
declined unanimously to accept his
resignation of the Gastonia pastorate
to accept the call from High Point.
Mr. Page represented the protest of the
Gastonia church against High Point's
claims in a manner that has won for
him great praise. Rev. T. C. Croker

a unit against Mr. Shield's departure.
After a lengthy and full consideration
of the matter the action as indicated
was taken by the presbytery. Gastonia
had about a dozen representatives
at the meeting. The affection exhibited
by the entire presbytery for Mr.
Shields, and that will brook no thought
of his going elsewhere now, show the
hold he has upon the hearts of his
people and the value they set upon his
usefulness to them. And the more
other people know of him, the better
they like him Mr. C. L. Williams,

A Negro, Alfred Llneberger, agel seventeen
years, was killed Wednesday
morning at Mount Holly while trying
to board a moving freight train. He
grabbed a road on the side of a box
car, but lost his foothold and fell under
the trucks, his body being badly
mangled. He died within two hours
after the accident Mr. James
A:dams, who lives one and a half miles
from Bowling Green, had the misfortune
to lose his barn and crib by fire
Wednesday night. When discovered,
about 11 o'clock, the entire roof was
ablaze and prompt work was required
to rescue the horses and other stock.
Mr. Adams had stored his entire wheat
crop, estimated at something over a
hundred bushels, in the barn, and this,
together with a quantity of feedstuff
was lost. The crib, which was located
near the barn, and which contained
thirty or forty bushels of corn, was
also burned. The farm machinery
ntnreri at tha harn. was saved. The
origin of the Are is unknown and no
theory as to how it caught has been
given. Mr. Adams carried insurance
in the Farmers' Mutual Insurance company
to the amount of $135.
Two Women In the Treasury Department
Who Look For Stray Bonds.
"Official Examiner of the Waste Basket"?such
is the title conferred on
two women at the treasury. Nor is the
title a vain one. The women are classed
as "experts" and their duties are
reckoned important.
From 9 to 4 o'clock each day, except
Sunday, they may be found in the
basement of the big and dirty graybrown
building wherein Uncle Sam's
sinews of commerce and war, peace
and prosperity are kept. Hour by
hour they carefully go through the big
piles of waste paper dumped out for
their inspection from the capacious
maws of the hundreds of baskets,
which are supposed to catch the litter
of officials and clerks from Secretary
Shaw down. It is the word "suppos- |
ed" that gives these experts employment.
Too often a document or paper
of value slips inadvertently into the
baskets, and were It not for the watch- j
ful eyes of these women would find its
way Into the fiery furnace of destruction.
People who have been wont to Joke
about the ridiculous titles that certain
government employees bear, and in a
popular farce of a few years ago there
was a character who styled himsei
"the official cleaner of government cuspidors."
But there are, in fact, two
official examiners of waste baskets in
the treasury department.
The necessity of employees of this
kind will be realized at once, when it is
known that drafts, vouchers and bonds
worth anywhere from a dollar up to
$10,000, and even more, are handed
about and sent from one room to another
as though they were of no more
value than so much cambric. Frequently
the carelessness of a messenger
permits one of these slips of paper,
representing many hundreds and even
thousands of dollars, to fall into a
waste basket. A sudden gust of wind
" - ylAdlf
may carry a Dona irom a una o
and toss it into the same receptacle,
while a hurried official may tear in hai
a draft for a large sum of money and
throw the pieces into the basket. Until
the adoption of the present system
of examining the contents of these
baskets at the end of each day all mishaps
of this sort were past immediate
correction. While they did not always
result in the actual loss of the face
value of each paper, they invariably
caused a great deal of trouble and annoyance.
Banks that ordered shipments
of notes failed to get their money
until weeks after the time it should
have been delivered. Then, again, the
disappearance of an important draft or
voucher created more or less suspicion
as to the honesty of employees and
kept the treasurer in constant hot water.
Now most of this trouble is avoided
by the lynx-eyed examiners, who
examine every article that goes into
the baskets.
There Is a well regulated system for
handling this work. Every basket in
the building is numbered, a tag telling
in what room and to what clerk it belongs.
Each employee has two such
baskets, which are used on alternate
days. One set is examined one day
and the other set is looked over the
following day. The baskets are
brought into the examiner's room exactly
as they are left by the clerks.
The general orders throughout the
department are that no scrap of paper
-u-n 41 I-*'. - u.tfhAiit
9Iia.ll UC L111UW11 111 IU a UtW/VCl wu uvuv
first being torn in halves. So the examiners
are on the lookout for official
looking documents, and especially papers
that have not been torn. All papers
of this description are laid aside
after being labeled with the number of
the basket from which they were taken.
It frequently happens that much
of the stuff picked out in this way is
of no value, but not long ago one of the
women engaged on this work found a
$10,000 United States bond.
It is the duty of the charwoman to
give a casual glance through waste
baskets before they are carried to the
room of the examiners. A few weeks
ago the chief clerk of the department
threw into his basket a worthless circular
which was folded in the shape of
an official document. He failed to disfigure
it, and the next morning he was
somewhat surprised to find the paper
on his desk again. He tossed it into
the basket a second time, but the next
morning it was on his desk as usual.
A third time the process was repeated,
and the chief clerk finally learned that
the faithful charwoman was the person
who persistently rescued the document
that he was so anxious to get rid of.?

An Anlnjal Story For
Little Folks
The Foolish Hares
Nobody had any Idea that the two
bares would be bright scholars when
they went to school, but it certainly
was the opinion of every one who
knew them that they would at least
be able to keep up with their , class.
One day during the geography hour
the teacher showed the class a big
globe representing the earth and told
how it turned on its axis and how durine
the day we are all on top of the
globe, while at night we are nearly
upside down. The little hares looked
on and wondered, and when they got
home they got to talking the whole
thing over.
"I'm much afraid that we will fall
off tonight when the world gets upside
down," said Jimmy Hare.
"So am I," said Charlie Hare.
"How are we going to prevent it?"
asked Jimmy.
"I don't know," answered Charlie.
"I'll tell you what we'll do," said
"What?" asked Charlie.
"Teacher said if we stood on our feet
we would be upside down. Let's stand
on our heads."
And so the foolish little fellows
agreed to do so, and soon as it got dark
"lbt'8 stand on oub heads."
every hare stood on end. And there
they stood until they got blue and red
In the face and their eyes popped out
and their tongues hung out. By and
by Jimmy could not hold on any longer,
and he just sighed a little sigh and
tumbled over on his back. And then
Charlie tumbled over on his back.
They lay there a few moments, waiting
to tumble, but somehow they stuck
just us tight to old Mother Earth as
they ever had.
"Have you gone yet?" asked Jimmy
without looking up.
"No, not yet," answered Charlie.
"Well, I don't believe we are going
to fall," said Jimmy.

Rat Story From Manila.?When
the United States military transport
Sherman arrived at Manila recently,
she was, as is the case with most other
ships that arrive from, or touch at
Hong Kong on the way to Manila, detained
for inspection to see if she had
any rats on board. When the big
transport dropped anchor in Manila
bay. therefore, the official rat inspector
went on board to see what was doing
in the way of rodents. In fifteen
minutes he hurriedly left the ship and,
going ashore, reported that there was
on board the Sherman, according to
the patent rat enumerator in use at
Manila, no fewer than 950,000 rats.
The Sherman was immediately ordered
to the quarantine station at
Mariveles, as no ship on which the disease-carrying
rodents are found Is al- '
I in,vo/i tr? Hnntr at Manila until thev are
exterminated. Accordingly the Sherman
steamed back to Mariveles. When
she arrived there her hatches had been
opened up and enough sulphur carried
below to kill millions of rats. As soon
as the anchor was dropped the sulphur
fires were started in the hold, and in a
few minutes the work of the fumes became
Out of the hatches there poured such
a stream of rats as was never before
seen in the Orient. First by the hun
dreds, and then by the thousands, they .
appeared at the hatches, and then leaped
into the water. Every one tried to :
swim ashore, but the distance was far .
too great for any rat to swim, and soon
the great black line of paddling ro- ]
dents began to thin out. Some of
them reached a point about 300 yards '
off the ship, but none got any farther, ;
After the fumes had been working for
about an hour the rats stopped appear- ]
ing. An inspection of the ship was
made and not a rat discovered. The ]
Sherman then re-entered Manila and
discharged her cargo.?From the Ma- ]

Irishman and the Mule.?General
Phil Sheridan was at one time asked
at what little incident did he laugh the
"Well," he said, "I do not know, but
I always laugh when I think of the
Irishman and the army mule. I was
riding down the line one day, when I
saw an Irishman mounted on a mule
which was kicking its legs rather freely.
The mule finally got its hoof
caught in the stirrup, when in the excitement,
the Irishman remarked:
'Well, begorrah, if you're goin' to get
on. I'll get off!'"

General Merchandise.
For Hats.
The considerably more than 1,000
Hats that we have been offering at reduced
prices for the past month or two
now nugiber less than 600 and the
price is still lower in proportion than
It has ever been. The fact is, we are
selling the remnants at ALM08T
We have-on hand quite an attractive
line of 8ample Hate in Men's Furs.
They are good and their original selling
price averaged over $2.25. As a
matter of fact there is not a Hat in the
lot that is worth less than $2. We
have made a clearing out prioe of $1
straight to the first comers.
Hats that
Are Hats.
Everybody knows the famous JOHN
? Li a* Ti i. A M
o. si c i own nn i it is no guuu as
the best to be found in the world, in
quality, style and finish. They are
made in every block and the man who
cannot And a Stetson Hat to suit his
notions has but little idea of what he
wants. We have taken the agency for
the goods of the Stetson people in
Yorkvllle and have put a small line in
stock. We do not feel warranted in
putting in a full line at this time, because
if we did such a thing we would
not have room for much else. But we
have the Stetson catalogues, and we
can show customers just what they
want. Better than this, we ean furnish
anything that Stetson makes, at
Away Down.
Our entire stock of Clothing without
reservation, is being offered away
down for CA8H. Our line includes
numerous bargains, and people who
come to us with their money are likely
to get their money's worth.
We are still offering rare bargains in
Man's Oxfords, and prices on Ladies'
and Missss' Shoes have been still fur
ther reduced.
Trunks and
. . *
We believe we have the best stuff in
Trunks and Valises that has been offered
on this market. As a rule only
cheap stuff has been brought here?
something suggestive of the colored
exhorter's camp-meeting outfit; but we
an now fit out people who want to go
o the mountains, the Isle of Palms or
o Europe. Take a look at our Trunks,
falises or Bags.
Something new, interesting and aristic,
including the very latest paterns.
They are Just In and but few
leople have had an opportunity to see
