A Few Honest Men Left.
"There are still a few honest men
left In the world," said J. J. Hill, the
financier, at a banquet, according to
the Minneapolis Journal. "It Is well
to be cautious, but we should hot suspect
everybody. If we are too suspicious
we make ourselves absurd.
"I worked in St. Paul in my youth
and they still tell there about an old
farmer and his wife who started for
St. Paul on a visit
"Before the couple set off they were
cautioned frequently by their friends to
beware of the St. Paul sharpers. They
replied that they would keep their
eyes open. And they sturted on their
Journey with a nervous determination
to look out for sharpers and confidence
. men.
"Well, on the way the old farmer got
off at a junction to buy some lunch
and the train went off without him. It
waa a terrible mishap. The last he
saw of his wife she was craning out
of the car window, shouting something
reproachful at him which he couldn't
hear on account of the noise of the
"It hapened that an express came
along a few minutes later. The old
farmer boarded the express and beat
his wife to St. Paul by nearly an hour.
"He was waiting for her at the station
when she arrived. He ran up to
her and seized her valise.
" 'Well, Jane,' he said, 'I'm glad to
see ye again. I thought we was separated
for good.'
"But the old lady jerked the valise
from him indignantly.
" 'No, ye don't, Mr. Sharper.' she
cried. 'I left my husband at the Junction.
Don't be comln' any of yer confidence
tricks on me or I'll call a po
lice man.'"
Ax Audacious Food.?The function
of the king's fool in mediaeval times
was in a measure an important one,
and he who tilled the post had often
very great influence with his sovereign.
Perhaps the brightest and most
astute of fools was Triboulet, the favorite
Jester of Francis I. It was reported
that his majesty, who was of a very
generous nature, had acceded to a request
of Charles V., emperor of Germany,
that he might not pass through
France on his way to the Netherlands.
Putting aside all recollection of what
he had suffered at the emperor's hands
while a captive in Spain, Francis was
preparing to receive Charles with
much ceremony and splendor. Observing
one morning that Triboulet
was scribbling industriously upon a
bit of paper, Francis inquired what he
was aoing.
"I have Just added the name of Emperor
Charles of Germany to my list
of fools," answered the Jester, "a sovereign
who is committing the incredible
folly of intrusting himself to you
by passing through your kingdom."
"Folly? How If I should let him
pass safely?"
"Then I shall substitute your name
for his," was the audacious retort of
the fool.
No Excuse.?The Judge had his patience
sorely tried by lawyers who
wished to talk and by men who tried
to evade Jury service. So when the
puzzled little German, who had been
accepted by both sides, Jumped up the
Judge was exasperated.
"Shudge!" cried the German.
"What is it?" demanded the Judge.
"I fink I like to go home to my
wife," said the German.
"You can't," retorted the Judge. "Sit
"But, . shudge," persisted the G?r
man, "t aon i tins i nrnne a gwu onurer."
"You're the best in the box," said
the judge. t "Sit down."
"But, shudge," persisted the little
German, "I don't speak good English."
"You don't have to speak any at all,"
said the judge. "Sit down."
The little German pointed to the
lawyers to make his last desperate
"Shudge," he said, "I can't make
noddings of what these fellows say."
It was the Judge's chance to get even
for many annoyances.
"Neither can any one else," he said.
"Sit down." With a sigh the little
German sat down.?Tit-Bits.
The Cast-Off Baby.?The stork
had been a recent visitor to tne nome
of Mrs. Smith, who already was the
mother of a year-old baby boy. A
chance meeting in the corner market
was the opportunity for Mrs. Smith's
neighbor, Mrs. Jones to break the
news to her friend Mrs. Brown.
Dorothy Jones, five years old. paused
in her task of arranging the covers
about her new doll. She had experienced
difficulty recently in finding in
the person of a less fortunate neighbor
girl a mother for a doll with a
broken nose and one arm that had
been her former favorite and for
which there was no room In her di-1
minutlve establishment when the new
doll came. She pulled at her mother's
skirts inquiringly.
"Mamma," she asked, "did you si y
Mrs. Smith had a new baby?"
"Yes dearie, a brand new baby."
answered the mother.
"Well mamma," came the unsatisfied
query, "what's she going to do
with ner old one?"?Chicago Tribune.
Which Way??The story Is told of
a major who was in command of
troops who were in pursuit of some
outlaws. In the chase he arrived at a
village to discover that he was too late
to Intercept them, and finally ordered
the horses unsaddled and fed.
Now the major's hostler was a son
of Ireland, Ignorant of everything pertaining
to the equestrian art. and,
coming in from the village in a state
bordering on intoxication, he put the
major's saddle on the horse facing to

instantly discovering the mistake,
demanded the reason for it.
"An' shure." said Pat. a little terrified
?"an' shure. major, an' I didn't know
which way you was going!"
An explosion followed?the major
was satisfied?and Pat escaped punishment.?Harper's

negro, a certain southern gentleman

negro assumed a troubled look and

event are not known here......
Mr. W. F. Broom, at the head of the
A. J. Broom company of this place,
surprised his numerous friends and
acquaintances by going off this week
and getting married. He had so long
graced the ranks of bachelordom and
had kept so well concealed his matrimonial
plans that not even his most
intimate associates suspected that he
had any idea of becoming a benedict.

Broom was happily wedded to a
charming young lady of Chester county,
Miss Julia Killian daughter of Mr.
S. E. Killian of the vicinity of Fort

train Wednesday night.
Lantern, April 26: Miss Hattle
Cornwall has been elected sponsor and
Miss Nell Wilkes maid of honor to
represent Walker-Gaston camp at the
state reunion in Columbia May 7th
to 9th -..The picture of the man
held in Washington state supposed to
be W. E. Perry has been received but
no one can say It is Perry's likeness.
Further Inquiry has been made as to
marks of identification. Two other
men are under arrest at different
places in the northwest under suspicion
of being Perry Mrs. E. F.
Akin of Bethesda, York county, who
has been spending several months with
relatives here and at Richburg and
Lando, was in the city yesterday
morning on her return home The
communion services closed at Edgmoor
last night. Dr. R. M. Stevenson
of Clover, assisted Mr. Lummus. He
preached six splendid sermons, which
were enjoyed very much by the congregation
Miss Minnie Boyd of
Cornwell, and Mr. D. C. Smith of
Ruby, Chesterfield county, were married
Thursday, April 18, at Cheraw, by
Rev. A. N. McArn. Miss Boyd is the
oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
D. Boyd of Cornwell, and has been
principal of the school at Ruby for two
years. Mr. Smith is a farmer at that
place Eleanor, the little daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Crawford, met
with a right painful accident late yesterday
afternoon. She and some other
children had been playing in Mr.
S. M. Jones's yard and she in her play
started to run across the street and
was looking back at her little brother,
who was following, all unconscious of
the approach of the hacks which were
coming from the S. A. L. depot, and
ran right against the hub of the hind
wheel of Robert Nelson's carriage. A
considerable gash was cut in her forehead
above her eye and it was feared
the eye would be Injured, but she is
getting on nicely this morning ana
her injury is not considered serious.
Two physicians were called in and it
required several stitches to sew up
the gash. Some traveling men who
were in the hack said the driver was
in no way to blame for the accident,
but he got out of the way Mr. G.
W. Chalk of Chalkville, who came in
yesterday to renew his subscription,
told us. among other things, of a negro
that belonged to his father before
emancipation. Simon was not very
bright intellectually, but had enough
of sense for ordinary purposes. The
Rev. Mr. Ezell was holding a meeting
at Brushy Fork and much interest was
manifested. He was moving around
among the people and came to Simon
Chalk, in the section of the church set
apart for negroes. Simon had made
known his desire to join the church.
Mr. Ezell wishing to inform himself
as to his change of heart, inquired,
"Simon, how do you feel?" The new
convert replied, "I feels purty well,
Mas Ezell; how does you feel? The
preacher said, "I am well, but that is
not what I am talking about now. I
want to know about your change."
"Oh! I got 25 cents and master owes
me another quarter. Dat make 50
cents. I give you dat."
Gastonia Gazette, April 26: Joe Es
tes. a negro, was arrested by Policeman
Carroll yesterday on a warrant
sworn out last December by S. W.
Moore of York county, charging him
with riding off with a horse belonging
to Mr. Moore. Deputy Sheriff Quinn
of York, came up this morning to take
the negro back to Yorkvllle for trial.
The offense was committed last June.
At Gainesville, Ga., last Thursday
Miss Toxie Lyles was married to
Mr. W. M. Moore, son of Mr. and Mrs.
C. W. Moore of Gastonia. They arrived
in Gastonia Friday and will make
their home here, Mr. Moore having
accepted a position at the Loray. He
is a brother of Mr. Henry Moore and
a cousin of Mr. Land Moore, both connected
with Loray A report came
to Gastonia yesterday that there were
twenty cases of smallpox at Crouse
station, which is just across the line
in Lincoln county. This report seems
to have been exaggerated but had foundation
in fact. A telephone message
from Cherryville to the Gazette this
morning brought the information that
there were several mild cases of the
disease at Crouse. possibly six or seven.
around the factory of the Burke
Manufacturing company. The name
of only one victim, however, could be
learned, that of Mr. M. M. Burke, proprietor
of the Burke Manufacturing
company His many friends were
glad to see Mr. J. B. F. Riddle of the
Union neighborhood on the streets
yesterday for the first time in many
weeks. Mr. Riddle, who Is up in the
seventies, has just recovered from a
serious attack of pneumonia Mr.
J. Laban Wilson, who has been seriously
ill at his home in the Union
neighborhood for the past several
months, was taken to the Presbyterian I
hospital at Charlotte this morning1 for I
treatment. He was taken through the
country from his home, being accom
panled by Messrs. L. L. and J. R.
Henderson, Reece Patrick and Dr. G.
R Patrick. Mr. Wilson was not so
well yesterday. His condition at present
Is not considered critical.- It Is *
hoped that the treatment at the hospital
will be beneficial to him. C
Books Say There Are Seven, But Few
Observe That Number.
How many colors are there In the t
rainbow, or what Is the same thing, c
how many can one make out In the ^
light that has come through a dia- e
mond, a piece of cut glass or the bev- t
eled edge of a mirror? The books of e
course, say seven. But how many peo- a
pie really do see three different shades f
of blue as distinct on one side of the d
green as are the red, orange and yel- (]
low on the other?
By no means everybody, we may
be sure, although, on the other hand,
It is known that certain sorts of ants y
when they look at the rainbow see n
only the sky where we saw the red f
band, while, to make up for It, they C
see next the violet on the other side B
of the bow, one or two colors Invisible
to us.
Now, if there are rainbow colors |
which men do not see at all. and if E
some people make out only six colors |
where others distinguish seven, be- ^
cause they are blind to one of the t
three shades of blue, one might guess E
that there would be people somewhere 1
In the world who would be able to find
no more than five different colors, or c
perhaps, only four. There really Is '
reason for thinking that this Is the g
case. E
The early Greeks had no word for C
blue, and Gladstone always main- ?
talned that It was because they could q
not see blue. Moreover, It seems to G
be a general rule that where a Ian- G
guage does not have words for red, jj
yellow, green and blue the blue Is al- ^
ways the one to be lacking, and trav- X
elers among the savage tribes In the J
Interior of Borneo have reported them g
to be blue blind. \
Lately several teachers who have it
gone fr'>m the United States to the Jj
Philippine Islands and taken schools p
among the Vasayans?who,-of course p
are related to the real Filipinos only s
as the Indians to us?have complain- |
ed of the difficulty in making their g
pupils learn the names of colors. S
These little brown children use In J
school red, orange and yellow crayons, ,g
exactly as American children do, but y
they get sadly mixed over the blues V
and greens. The Visayan boys Insist ^
that their dark blue trousers are black
?as indeed, we should take them to
be in the evening. The girls like best j'
to wear red and yellow, which they A
see as we do, but purple they think is A
brown or red, their light blue dresses *
they take to be green, while they In- a
slst that sky and grass are only dlf- A
ferent Bhades of the same color. jj
It is as if these children saw all the E
time by gaslight, by which as we all ?
know, dark blues are black and light t
blues can hardly be told from green. |
There are scientists who hold that E
ages ago men could see in the rainbow E
oniy reu, urdiigc, j'cuun anu and
that gradually as they have pro- ^
gressed In other respects they have added
first greenish blue, then Indigo,
only lately violet and will by and by
add others still.
Our Army of Tall Men on One of the
Samoan Islands.
The "army" here Is most peculiar,
writes a correspondent of the Indianapolis
News from Tutulla. It consists
of sixty native soldiers called the
"Fita-flta"?pronounced "feetah-feetah."
On a straight salary basis these
soldiers are probably the best paid soldiers
in the world, being entered in
the naval service of the United States
as apprentice seamen and getting $1650
a month, while the American soldier
gets only $13 in money to start
But, while the Fita-flta guard is
the highest salaried soldier, he does
not get as much as the American $13a-month
soldier gets, because after
getting a $45 clothing allowance at
the time of his four-year enlistment,
he does not get any further clothing
allowance, though, like the soldier at
home, he gets a food allowance of $9 ,
a month.

Hunting and Ashing are the greai
cupatlons of the Eskimos, and theli
mmerce is carried on by barter, the
indard being a fox skin. Mr. Low

enty-four hours It will be correc

This setting is done from the cen
