No Place For Them. An old soldier describes what turned out to be a laughable experience of two of his comrades. In one view of it they were very unfortunate, but looked at in another light their case may be said to have been "twice blest;" for they were certainly glad to get in and glad. der still to get out. On one occasion, when during a march, they halted, they discovered an old house near by, and thought it would be a nice thing to sleep under shingles once more. Accordingly they slipped out of the ranks, went over to the house, and spreading their blankets on the floor, went to sleep. About daylight they were awakened by a soldier in charge of the place. "I don't want to disturb you fellows; but do you know where you are sleeping?" "No. Is this some general's headquarters?" "No; but it is old General Smallpox's hospital. It won't interfere with him, however, if sleeping here, don't trouble you any." "Whew!" shouted the luxurious sleepers simultaneously, as they ran out of the place. "Don't be in a hurry," shouted the guard cheerfully, "you are not disturbing anybody. There's only two fellows in here, and they're both dead." "Why didn't you tell us, you miserable scroundrel?" "Because I was asleep myself. Here don't you want your blankets!" "No! to blazes with the blankets!" | "All right. I'll take good care of 'em nnnln T llAnA Vflil llll y UU CUII1C Utttiv a?aiu. a iivkv / w will have it light" At this horrible suggestion the men fled back to the line, where, by begging, they got garments enough to , mrJce a change. It was many days before they got rid of the fear that they , had the dread disease. It was much longer before any one could say "shingles" to either of them with any de- ( gree of safety. "Total Indifference."?Tom Sher- i idan, the brilliant young son of a more ' brilliant father, had an uncle whose society he much frequented. The uncle, i who was skeptical, did his nephew lit- < tie good and much evil. Among the things of doubtful advantage to a boy, i which Tom acquired from the uncle, i was the habit of indulging in meta- 1 physical discussions; and he thus picked up certain theories and difficulties with which he used to puzzle his fath- i er. ] The life of Sheridan, senior was not 1 a moral one. He drank to excess, and i he ran In debt to support his extrava- < gant style of living. But he disliked ] skeptical notions, and held to ortho- < dox ideas in philosophy and religion. I Tom one day tried to engage his t father In a discussion of the doctrine of 1 necessity. i ".Fainer," saia ne, aia you ever uu < anything in a state of perfect indiffer- i en^e; without motive; I mean, of some ] kind or other?" ] Sheridan who knew what was com- t ing, and didn't relish such discussions, ] answered. "Yes, certainly." 1 "What? Total, indifference?entire < thorough indifference?" "Yes. total entire, thorough indifference." "Then, tell me." persisted Tom, "what is it you can do with total Indifference?" "Why, listen to you, Tom!" replied the father. When Tom was a young man, he one day announced his approaching marriage. His father thinking it an imprudent act, threatened to "cut him off with a shilling." "You haven't got it about you. have you. sir?" answered Tom knowing his father's impecunioslty. "Caesar" and His Wife.?There are husbands who, among their male com- , panions, like to have it supposed that they are Just a little tyrannical at home. One such man, who had two , or three friends at his house one evening, remarked, as they were chatting , together comfortably at a rather late . hour "Yes, I do what I like at home. My wife, she has to bend to my will, I can tell you. In my own house I'm a reglar Julius Caesar!" His wife came into the room in time , to hear that last sentence. The tyrant of his household looked a little uneasy, | but his wife neithed frowned, nor apparently, paid any attention to the remark. But after a moment she re- , marked very positively "Gentlemen, It Is late, and Julius Caesar has got to go to bed!" Whereupon the husband arose, stammered his excuses and retired leaving his guests to find their way out as best they could. It was In another household that the husband once remarked to his wife. "You know, my dear, that I am the head of the house!" "You may be the head as much as you like." said the wife, "but I'm the ; neck." "The neck? O yes, you may be the neck If you want to. my dear." "Very well. It's the neck that turns the head whichever way it pleases, Isn't It?" CT A young and accomplished Chicago lady recently eloped, and a younger sister was questioned by her angry father, whom he suspected of knowing more about the matter than she was wiling to admit. "Were you aware that your sister was going to elope?" inquired the old man. "No. father; she never told me anything about it." "Did you suspect anything?" "Nothing whatever." replied the girl. "Did she make any preparation for the escapade?" "Not that I knew anything about." "Did you not see her make any arrangements for going away?" "None, except to wash her feet." tsr a refractory Irishman in 1a.il named Dennis McGinnis, refused to work. The keeper said to him: "McGinnis, you go to work or to the pump." "Nlver" replied the Irishman. A second time the keeper ordered McGinnis to work, but he refused to budge an inch. "Now for the last time. McGinnis," exclaimed the keeper, "you go to work or to the pump." "Niver, sir," said McGinnis. straightening up to the full dignity of a man. "Faith, sir, I'll lave the jail first."

HISTORY OF SO From the First Settle the Rev By REV. ROBER1 From the Yorkvllle Enquirer of 1876. INSTALLMENT VII. Governor West's Second Term. During the period of West's first term several things worthy of being remembered took place. The colony received reinforcements from England, from Barbadoes and from New York. A town was laid out on Stono creek, west of Charles Town, and near by it. The tract was to contain twenty-five acres, five of which was to be reserved for a church yard, and the remainder to be used for planting lots. In December, 1671, some additions to the colony arrived from New York, among the number Michael Smith, a man of some importance. On the 20th of the same month, the Grand Council appointed Stephen Bull and Thomas Gray to assist Smith in selecting a place for a settlement. The Wando river, by an order of the Grand Council, was examined with reference to Its adaptedness for making settlements. Soon after a settlement was made at Charles Town, a tribe of Indians, called the Kusaoes, in conjunction with other tribes living southward from the town, became troublesome. From all that we can learn respecting them, they were greatly addicted to tnieving. xne neias anu nu uuuui the private stores of the colonists were plundered by these untutored savages. It is also clear that their minds were inflamed by the Spanlards. From the first the Spanish colonies bitterly opposed the English colony In South Carolina. As we have seen, Sayle and his men had scarcely landed, when a Spanish vessel from St. \ugustine entered Stono inlet with hostile Intentions. During the first term of West's administration, In the rery infancy of the colony, they commenced intriguing with the Kussoes for the purpose of making the Inlians enemies to the English. Not that the Spanish were moved with pity or compassion for the Indian; lot that they were grieved at heart because the Indian was about to be Iriven from the hunting grounds of his fathers and the graves of his sires. Nothing of this kind moved the Spanards at St. Augustine to form a secret confederation with the Indians for the destruction of the Ashley iver colony. No people ever treated another as :he Spaniards treated the aboriginal nhabitants of the New World. Ev?ry cruelty that satanic hate could Jevise was, without restraint, infllctid upon them wherever they were met. Spain, wherever she attempted :o plant a colony, literally tortured :he Indians out of existence. It Is lot claimed that the Ashley river coljny treated the Indians in every respect as a correct morality and an en ightened civilization enjoined, but it s evident from the time and all the ittending circumstance*, that In the Irst difficulty which occurred be:ween the English colony at Ashley -iver and the Indians, the latter were .0 blame. No doubt there was a livey tradition of the cruelties practiced >y Velasques at St. Helena one hunIred and fifty years previous to that lime. The Indian retained in his nemory, during life, the recollection )f either a favor granted or an inlury done. Sons were taught to bear sternal hatred to the enemies of their fathers. The Indian could not dislingulsh between the guilty and the innocent. Injured by one pale-face, his wrath was immediately kindled igainst every white man. The French under Rlbault, treated the Indians kindly, and they never forgot it. We may safely say that the Indians never would have maltreated the white settlers had they not been first wronged by the immigrants. No doubt there were great differences in the moral character of the various Indian tribes; but, generally, they made greater mistakes in punishing wrongs re ceived, than in deciding as to what is right and what is wrong in the intercourse of one individual with another. The first salutation the Pilgrim fathers gave the Indians at Plymouth Rock, was a shower of musket balls; at Jamestown, in Virginia, they were cheated and swindled; in the Albemarle and Clarendon colonies in the present state of N'orth Carolina, they were justly dealt with; by the Spanish in Hispanola. Peru and Mexico they were butchered as only the vilest of beasts are. The tale of these injuries, we may well suppose, had spread from the sunny plains of the south to the frozen regions of the north. Warriors would, no doubt, sit around the fire of their wigwams and tell their children of the evils the tribes had suffered at the hands of the white men. All the circumstances conspired to beget hatred in the bosom of the Indian for the white man. The fault of the Indian was that he did not discriminate between the innocent and the guilty. The fact that the Spanish had Injured the Indians, was no reason why they should wreak vengeance upon the English. Still, we find that soon after the arrival of the colony at Ashley river the Kussoes manifested a hostile disposition. A constant guard had to be placed around every plantation from the very beginning. This, to a colony weak in numbers and dependent in part upon the product of their fields for bread, became burdensome; and even a guard did not prevent raids from marauding parties. Daily the Indians became more insolent and hostile in their bearing and actions. They would agree to no fair terms upon which the colony and tribe could live together, as neighbors in peace; but on the contrary threatened the lives of peaceable, and we may say, defenseless members of the colony. In view of all the circumstances it was deemed o/lolonKlo K xr tho o-ntmrnnr wnri pniin ell, to take some decisive measures by which the Kussoes and their confederates would be forced to live peaceably with the colony, and deport themselves consistently with uprightness and honesty. On the 27th day of September, 1671, war was formally declared by the governor and council against the Kussoes and Southwest Indians. Commissions were granted to Captain Joseph Godfrey and Captain Thomas Gray. They were Instructed to pros UTH CAROLINA : s f s nient to the Close of [ olution. J s T LATHAN, D. D. 8 r 1 s ecute the war "effectually," and the v dispatch with which the Kussoes and 8 their "coadjutors" were subdued ? shows that these captains obeyed the c orders of the council Implicitly, and c executed them promptly. So soon a as the ordinance declaring war was 8 passed, hostilities began in earnest, d There was no delay. Stephen Bull, e who held the office of master of ordl- 4 nance in the colony, seized, by the or- d der of the council, two Kussoes who ' were in town. The colonists were or- ^ dered to rendezvous and the march y against the enemy commenced at c once. There was no waiting to get J up a suit of clothes or to cook up a 1 month's ration; but each man set out * the moment he received the order, J for the seat of war. With such dis- 9 patch and secrecy was the expedition 31 conducted, that the Indians were not F given any time to prepare for It. The v campaign lasted only from the 27th h of September to the 2nd of October? 8 four or five days?but the victory n was as complete as If It had been prolonged for as many months. On the 2nd of October, an order was passed by the council that the prisoners should be held by the Individuals who had taken them, and unless they were redeemed by the tribe, they should be sold and the proceeds of the sale divided among the members of the company by which they had been captured. This looks like the war orders of the olden time?when the soldier got his monthly pay out of the sale of prisoners he took on the battlefield. What was done In the present Instance, we do not certainly know. Some of the captives, no doubt, were ransomed by the remainder of the Kussoes, while others were sold Into bondage and became laborers on the plantations of the immigrants. From this first military campaign, we may form some Idea of the condition of things In the colony. We may safely conclude that the people had great confidence In the prudence and good sense of the governor and council. The fact Is, Colonel West, the governor, was the main spirit of the colony. For a period of twenty years he exercised gredt power and enjoyed great privileges, but neither were made conducive to his own benefit exclusive of the public good. When war was declared against the Kussoes, the colony must have been under good military discipline. Most of the Imml- C grants had In the language of a Latin poet, "learned the art of war in boyhood." They had been accustomed to strife in some form or other In their n native land. However well the colony s may have been previously organized, E this campaign against the Kussoes, In- ^ fluenced the council to take into serious consideration ways and means for better protecting the lives of the inhab- a itants of the colony, and preventing the S property of the people from being sto- P len or injured by depredators. ^ Two days after the favorable termination of the campaign?on the 4th of s October?it was ordered by the council ? that the powder belonging to the colo- ^ ny he distributed so as to be more s safe and more accessible in case of an ^ invasion. Six barrels were ordered to ^ be stored on the proprietors plantation, under the charge of Godfrey; then barrels in the house of Yeamans, and whatever was left to remain In the proprietors store house. On the 26th of the same month an' order was passed requiring every In- ? dividual In the colony except the members and the officers of the Grand Council to appear in arms whenever and at whatever place they might be ordered to parade by their respective ] officers. Any person who failed to opey the orders of his captain was, un- ? less he had a good and valid excuse, to " be heavily fined or severely punished 1 as the Grand Council might see fit. ? Every gun was to be put in thorough 5 repair and that this might be done cap- ? tains were granted authority to order * peremptorily smiths, whether freemen * or slaves, to repair the guns. A list of those required to do patrol duty had been previously made out, * but for some reason many Individuals ' had become negligent In the discharge 1 of this Important duty. At this Juncture of affairs It was thought proper ? to make out a new list. This duty was assigned to Thomas Thomson, mar- ] shal of the province. He was requlr- ed to Inform either In person or by a note left at the house of the individual,, the particular time that each person -J was to perform this duty of watching. It was provided that In case any Indi- f vidual was sick then the next man on the list was to take his place. The fine Imposed for neglecting to patrol was . five shillings, and In case the defaulter J was poor he was to be severely punished. The marshal was allowed about seven dollars and a half per month for his services In this capacity. The pay li was to continue so long as the marshal o was employed as chief of patrol, and ^ to be paid by the Inhabitants "propor- v tionately." With propriety might it be said, that the Ashley river colony regarded eternal vigilance as the price of ^ liberty." J The classical scholars cannot fail to see the stricken resemblance of the colony during the period of Governor ' West's first term, to that planted in ancient Carthage by the Tyrian princess Dido. In the chaste and elegant language of Virgil, "necessity forced both to nlaee a euard around their do- . minions." The Inhabitants tilled the soil, built their houses, fished in the streams and took the oysters out of the coves, clad in all the panoply of a soldier. The men were, in the literal t sense of the phrase, "citizen soldiers." a The homes which now shelter us from E the scorching suns of summer and the a pelting storms of winter were purchas- f ed for us by our illustrious forefathers, S with a treasure more precious than j gold. It cost them anxious days and sleepless nights. As is always the case under similar circumstances, there were no doubt some individuals destitute of moral ^ character. An example of this class s of persons we find in Dennis Mohoon, h a servant of Richard Coale. Mahoon ' plotted with the Spanish to the detriment of the colony. On one occasion, having been detected in his plans to c escape from the colony and seek pro- tectlon from the crown of Spain, he was apprehended and brought before J the council, but on confessing his guilt v ind declarnlg his sorrow and penlence, he was pardoned. Prom his conluct afterward, It was evident that his lorrow was only fear of punishment, or he was again detected In making i-rrangements to escape from the cololy to the Spanish, and also in persuadng John Rivers and John Cooke to go vith him. The sentence of the council vas that for this second offense, he thould be stripped naked to the waist, md received thirty-nine lashes on the laked back. In these days, when there Is a store n every neighborhood of five miles I iquare, It may be interesting to know Pho were the first merchants in the itate and In what their stock consisted. Sometime after the settlement was commenced at Ashley river?the prelse time Is not know.n?John Foster md Thomas Gray formed a copartnerhip for the sale of general merchanllse, to adopt the language of the preset day. On the 13th of January, 1672, hey dissolved the copartnership and llvlded the stock on hand. The stock n trade in this first store in South Carolina consisted of eight servants, of k'hom, on the division, John Foster reelved Thomas Witty, Wm. Davlse, ohn Ratllffe and James Powell, and Thomas Gray received Richard Poore, tlchard Barginer, Edward Howell and oam Burnett. The other part of the tock consisted of deer skins, a few ards of linen, hoes, shovels, axes, ilcks, saws chisels, frows, hammers, sedges, beef, peas, oil, hens, hogs, tur:eys and one sheep. The most of the tock consisted In agricultural lmplelents. TO RE OONTINCBD. Wood's Seeds. Alfalfa Seed IMftfllS ATFD Ready For Sowing.

Two Six Months Subscribers at $1 each will be considered the equivalent of one yearly subscriber at $1.75, and so counted. A subscription paid for two or more years in advance at $1.75, will be counted as one name for each year so paid. Clubmakers will be held personally responsible for the payment of all names returned by them. After a clubmaker has returned and paid for any name, he can, at any time thereafter, discontinue the sending of the paper to the person for whom he has paid and transfer the unexpired term to any other person, provided the person to whom the transfer Is desired was not a subscriber at the time the original name was entered on our books. No name will be counted in compe- " tition for a premium until the subscription price has been paid; nor will any premium be delivered until a satisfactory settlement has been made for all names returned by the clubmaker. Persons who commence making clubs will not be permitted to transfer their club to another clubmaker** list after the names have been entered on our books. It is not necessary that the names on a club should all be at the same postofflce. Names may be taken at any number of places. All subscriptions must be forwarded to us at the expense of those sending them. We will be responsible for the safe transmission of money only when sent by draft, registered letter or money order drawn on the Yorkville postofflce. In sending names write plainly, and give postofflce, county and state. All subscriptions will be discontinued at the expiration of the time paid for. A separate list will be kept for each clubmaker, who will be credited with each name sent, so that the number sent by any clubmaker may be ascertained at a moment's notice. In case of a tie for either premium, two weeks will be allowed in which to work off the tie. The time in which names may be returned, under our propositions will commence NOW, and expire at 6 o'clock p. m., on the 15th day of March, 1906. After the closing of this contest on March 15, 1906 no single yearly subscription will be received for less than the yearly subscription price, $2 00, except new clubs are formed. S, Yorkville, S. C.
