A Steady Job. So many witnesses had queered his clients' case by swearing that the shots they had heard in a shooting affair were only 30 seconds apart, that when pressed to tell what they were doing when each report was heard, naming actions so dissimilar that it must have taken at least 10 minutes to switch from one to the other, the criminal lawyer swore that he would maintain consistency above all things !n his latest case. Gustave, the Swedish janitor, had heard two shots fired at the injured man. and the lawyer Impressed upon him the importance of swearing that he was engaged in the same task at each shot. In the course of the trial it was brought out that the shots had been fired a month apart, the first being merely a little target practice that did no harm, the second inflicting a serious wound. But there was no time to coach Gustave anew. Said the lawyer: "What were you doing when the i.st shot was fired?" *1 was sitting in the kitchen gnawing a chicken bone." said Gustave. "And what were you doing when the second shot was fired? Be careful how you answer." And Gustave was careful. "I was sitting in the kitchen." said he. "gnawing that same chicken bone."?Chicago Record Herald. The Bubble Reputation.?An old Greenock salt applied for employment aboard a vessel, but, having no discharge papers, he was rejected in favor of a younger man whose written credentials proved satisfactory to the captain. Subsequently, however, the captain was unable to obtain a crew of fully qualified seamen, and at the last moment he signed on the Greenock man for a transatlantic voyage. The first day out he was put to work washing down the deck, while his rival with the discharge papers was perched aloft with a bucket, adding a coat of tar to the rigging. Even as the old salt was casting sour glances at his qualified shipmate, the vessel gave a lurch and the unfortunate seaman dropped over the side, bucket and all. The old salt made his way leisurely toward the bridge. "Now, cap'n," he said, "you know that mon yer signed on wP the papers?" "Well, what of it, my man?" the captain rqjoined. "He's just gone off wi* your bucket." ?Everybody's Magazine. On? of Shaw's Eccentricities.?"So Bernard Shaw is not coming to America, eh? He says we are 200 years behind the times, so he could lear 1 nothing from us. Well, well!" The speaker, a dramatic critic of Washington, laughed heartily with the Star man. "Shaw," he said, "is amazing, ne always does the original thing. I went to see Caesar and Cleopatra with him once, and as we stood in the aisle?the house was crowded?a stranger behind us persisted in poking his head right over Shaw's shoulder. "Shaw then did the original thing. Taking out his handkerchief he wiped the man's nose, patting and twisting it pretty vigorously. The man, with an ugly oath, jerked back his head. " 'Oh, I beg your pardon," said Shaw. 'I thought it was mine, you know.'" She Knew.? William Archer, the noted English critic, said at one of the meetings of the Reformed Spelling board in New York: "I have been rather surprised, here in the states, with the general ignorance of what we spelling reformers are trying to do. Our aims are not at all understood. We have no idea of going to such ludicrous extremes as many people think. "In fact, the average man's idea of reformed spelling is a good deal like the two young ladies' idea of natural history. VY I let L j'CVl L Ul kltv UIIU.IM> chop come from?' said the first young lady. 'Is it the leg?' " 'Oh, not at all,' said the other laughing. The leg! How ridiculous! It is. of course, the jawbone. Have you never heard of animals licking their chops?"" A Nice Distinction.?In the heat of revivals regrettable things are sometimes said. Deacon Washington, colored, was holding a meeting in the Nolachucky chapel, and. being wrought up to a high pitch of excitement, he cried out: "I see befo' me ten chicken thieves, includin' Calhoun Clay!" Instantly Calhoun Clay rose and left the church. He was very angry. He brought several powerful influences to bear, and the deacon promised to apologize. So at the next meeting the old man said: "I desire to retract mah last night's remahk when I stated that I see befo' me ten chicken thieves, includin' Calhoun Clay. What I should have said, dear bretheren and sistern, was? I see befo' me nine chicken thieves, not includin' Calhoun Clay."?Detroit Free Press. Poor Learner.?The negro boy was up for the fifth time on a charge of chicken stealing. This time the magistrate decided to appeal to the boy's father. "Now, see here, Abe," said he to the darky, "this boy of yours has been up in court so many times for stealing chickens that m itreu or seems mm here." "Ah don't blame you. sah." returned the father. "Ah's tired o* seeing him here, too." "Then why don't you teach him how to act? Show him the right way, and he won't he coming here." "Ah has showed *im de right way, sah," declared the old man. earnestly. "Ah has sutteniv showed 'im de right way, but he somehow keeps sitting caught comin' way wid dose chickens!" Central Law Journal. The Whip Hand.?The broken down cabby regarded with a gleam of delight the taxi which had broken down. But he spoke no word. The chauffeur began operating on his machine. He turned it and twisted it and hanged it and screwed it, but to no avail. And still the cabby spoke not. The chauffeur hanged again. He did things to ignition sparks that wouldn't ignite, and cranks that refused to be anything but cranky. And still the cabby, sour of visage, lay low and said nufftn'. Then the chauffeur wiped his beady brow, and then the cubby, still with the gleam in his eye, crossed over. "'Ere!" he exclaimed grimly, holding out his whip. "'Ere y'are, mister!

As a nucleus for his stock farm Mr. Moeller brought along with him five Percheron brood mares and a couple of thoroughbred stallions, a Hamiltonian and a Belgian. Mr. Moeller will no doubt make a success of his stock-raising venture, as there is always a demand in this country for good stock. Rock Hill Herald, October 28: Miss Marj' Starr, of Yorkville, visited Miss Mar)- Moore a day or two this week. On Monday afternoon the editor of the Herald accompanied Mayor Roddey to his Lockview farm, which is situated about one mile below Steele's crossing and we were agreeably surprised to find the old place in such a fine shape. The mayor is not a farmer by trade but he is running this farm like an old-timer. His corn crop is good this year, the farm having produced enough to supply his stock this year. We found a corn shredder at work, and it is wonderful the feed-stuff that can bo produced with aid of the shredder Miss Azilee McFadden, of this city, and Mr. Sidney A. Cronenberg, of Charlotte. were married Wednesday afternoon at the Episcopal rectory, by Rev. C. W. Boyd. The marriage was not unexpected to the immediate families of the young couple, but such an early consummation was not anticipated. A tew menus neara 01 u in time nowever, to witness the ceremony and to accompany the happy pair to the afternoon train for Charlotte. Mrs. Cronenberg is the daughter of Mr. L. P. McFadden and has lived here all of her life where she has a number of warm friends whose interest will follow her to her new home The campaign for the betterment of rural schools inaugurated some months ago by the state department of education and Winthrop college, is beginning to show results, at even this early date. Miss Leila A. Russell, who was appointed county supervisor of rural schools and assigned to York county has been in the field since the middle of September. Her splendid work is attracting the attention and favorable comment of state officials, of school trustees, and individuals all over the county. Miss Russell is arousing the interest and pride of the citizens of the several school districts, and it is believed that the next few months will see marked changes and improvements in the appearance and surroundings as well as the internal management of our country schools. Gaffney Lodger, October 28: Neat and tasty invitations have been issued by Mr. and Mrs. James Claude Jefferies to the fifteenth anniversary of their marriage, which they will celebrate Monday evening, November seventh, from eight to eleven o'clock, at their beautiful home on Granard street.. Mrs. Po'ly Parker, widow of Mr. Frank Parker, died at her home in tne torintn section on vveanesuay night about 11.30 o'clock. Mrs. Parker was eighty-two years of age. She was the mother of nine children, five of whom are living. Deceased was a consistent member of the Corinth Baptist church and was a consecrated woman Ten full-blooded Jersey cows have recently been added to the number already owned by the Cherokee creamery, and others will be secured as early as practicable in order to keep up with the increasing demands for the products of this growing enterprise. The Jerseys were purchased at Woodruff by Messrs. McKeown and Williamso 1 of this city, who went over for that purpose Mr. Cole Cash, who has been a resident of the Battleground section all his life, passed away at his home near Thickety Mountain yesterday morning. Mr. Cash had only been sick a short while. He was about fifty-five years of age. He leaves a wife and one son, Mr. Chas. Cash. He was a member of the Baptist church and had lived so as to win the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. Mr. Cash was a farmer and lived a retired life Elnor Martin, a traveling salesman representing a Spartanburg firm, was placed under arrest here Monday afternoon on the complaint of a grocery merchant of this city, the charge being that Martin had taken some money from him while in his store that day. The accused man gave bond for his appearance at court and Tuesday morning he appeared before Mayor Little for trial: but after discussing the case and hearing the evidence?or. rather, finding there was no evidence going to show any guilt on the part of Martin?his honor ordered that the case be thrown out and no record made of it. It was claimed by the merchant that while Martin was in his store collecting payment for a bill of goods shipped by his house he laid his purse on the counter a short distance from the waiting man. and then turned his back for a few moments. Later, upon examining the contents of the purse the discovery was made, as he alleged, that something like the sum of $17 was missing. The merchant further claimed that Martin was the only one, other than himself, in the store at the time?hence it seemd that Martin was obliged to be the purloiner of the missing funds. The whole thing was entirely a matter of supposition, and the mayor could do nothing else, under the circumstances, hut dismiss the case against the accused man. Gastonia Gazette, October 28: Mr. ami Mrs. S. Elmer Spencer have the sympathy of many friends in the bereavement which came to them Tuesday when their little daughter, Elizabeth. aged nine months, two weeks and five days, died after an illness of only about four days. The little one became ill Friday morning and died at 11 a. m. Tuesday I lev. Dr. J. C. | Galloway returned iasi niKni irom Due Wi'si, S. whither he went Tuesday to officiate at the marriage of his niece. Miss Ola Develin and Mr J. H. Heck.... The circus came, it saw. it conquered. It brought to Gastonia the largest crowd that has ever been here at one time. Just how many people there were is hard to guess, the estimates running anywhere from 15.000 to 25.000. It is safe to say that there were in the neighborhood of 20.000. perhaps a few more, perhaps a few less. A statement, said to have come front a circus employe, was handed around Wednesday to the effect that 17,000 tickets were sold to the circus. This, of course, did not include those sold to the side shows, wltieh doubtless would add several thousand to the above number.... Mr. It. H. Babington went to Charlotte Wednesday afternoon to attend the marriage of his sister. Miss Johnsie Babington. to Mr. Herbert Brevard Hunter. .. .The majority of people in Gastonia will be glad to learn that Congressman K. V. Webb will deliver an address here next Thursday night in the opera house. Mr. Webb's it in erary did not include Gastonia but County Chairman T. L. Craig secured him for a date. Everybody is invited to be present to hear him. Mr. Webb is a great favorite in Gastonia and as usual will speak to a full house. He is one of North Carolina's brightest young men and ablest orators, lie will discuss the issues of the pending campaign in a convincing manner and as he always does on a high plane... . At 4.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon the Main Street Methodist church in this city was the scene of a most beautifully appointed and largely attended wedding ceremony, when Miss Myra Herman, daughter of the pastor, and Mr. Chess Abernathy, of this city, were united in marriage. The church had been most elaborately decorated for the occasion, the chancel and altar being especially beautiful in their trimimir.gs and draperies of ivy, ferns and | chrysanthemums, the color scheme be ling yellow ana green unier 01 Police J. W. Carroll and his assistants did some very clever detective work Tuesday in rounding up the pickpockets who were attracted to Gastonia by Ringling Brothers' circus. They did not wait till the slight-of-hand performers had completed their show but landed them behind the bars early in the afternoon before the performance in the big tent began. When one considers the enormous crowd that was here all day the wonder is that more people did not lose their pocketbooks and thar the pickpockets themselves did n?'t escape. Chief Carroll and his men ate receiving congratulations on all sides for their splendid work aa Is also Major Craig who took an active and personal interest in seeing that the people were protected. Chester Lantern, October 28: Mr J. Porter Hollis, a Chester boy who is making a high stand in his adopted home of Rock Hill, was here for the fair The Chester County Fair came to a close last night in a blaze of glory. It was a success from every standpoint and everyone is proud of Chester county. The showing she made was creditable to a county of twice the size and wealth. Every Chester man's pulse beats a little faster from pride over the showing grand old Chester made. The farm exhibits, the poultry, the sheep and hogs and cattle, the horses, and above all the prosperous, happy thousands of citizens, who lor both days poured into Chester from all sides. It is impossible to find words to describe the magnificent showing which was made at the county fair. United States Senator E. I? Smith, voiced the sentiments of many visitors when he stated yesterday .afternoon that he was surprised at the fine horses which he saw. Said lie knew there were some good ones here, but he was not expecting to see such a showing. He said the county fair was splendid and warmly praised the showing made. Hon. J. Porter Hollis, of Hock Hill, also warm'y commended the fair idea and said he felt proud of the fair. Every one commended the efforts and said that it would result in untold good to the county and city... .Bob Lewis, colored. v.as fined $25 in the police court this morning charged with drawing a pistol on Mr. Lyles Grant yesterday at the fair grounds. The fine was paid. It seems that Bob got off the trapeze yesterday and knocked into Mr. Grant. The latter called him down whereupon Bob cursed and drew a pistol. Seeing that he was in for it Bob broke and ran. but was later arrested and locked up, and this morning fined for his conduct No event of the fall, thus far has been prettier than the wedding on Tuesday evening of Miss Mary E. White, daughter of Air. and Mrs. J. G. L. White, and Mr. Frank L. Whit lock. The house was beautifully though simply decorated with ferns and cut flowers. The room in which the ceremony took place was in white and green. The altar was of ferns and on each side were two candelabra holding Ave candles each. The wedding bell was of white chrysanthemums. This was suspended from an arch beautifully draped with maline and caught with asparagus ferns and chrysanthemums. Promptly at 8.30 o'clock, the Rev. D. G. Phillips and the Rev. J. S. Snyder took their places. Then came one of the maids, Miss Sumter White, in an exquisite girlish gown of white. She was followed by the groom's only sister, Miss Alice T a \\* V? S # 11 k/> Lr o ho n/lcnmo gown of chiffon over satin. Both carried huge armsful of white chrysanthemums. Dainty little Margaret White brought in the ring on a chrysanthemum. Never did the bride look more winsome or lovely than when she came in on the arm of the groom. Her gown was of crepe meteor draped with simplicity, yet effective grace, beautifying her own individual style. The trimmings were of pearl and over her whole small figure fell the misty folds of her wedding veil. Her bouquet was of bride's roses and lilies of the valley in graceful shower effect. The fair is over and all must agree that it was a brilliant success. The sterling feature of the fair was in the showing made by Chester county farmers and others who exhibited stock, cattle, sheep, and other like things. It showed that Chester county has pride in her products, that the inhabitants are ready and willing at all times to do anything they can to show to the world just what we have and what we can do. Did you ever stop to think that pride is the beginning of improvement in anything. When you arouse a man's pride, you stir his ambition and he immediately begins to look up to something bigger anu better. The man who takes a pride in his appearance always look belter, the man who takes a pride in his home has a nicer one. the man who takes a pride in his work, does better, than one who has no pride in anything he has or in anything he does. Therein lies the secret or at least one of the secrets of success. And so the fair has proved that Chester people have pride in the things they own, and the things they can produce. And what is more, this sort of pride is not the kind that goes before destruction. It is the kind that precedes an era of ' instruction. The mere pride the inhabitants of Chester and Chester count> have in their city and county the more they will be willing to do towards improving it and bettering the conditions not only of themselves but of their neighbors. The lesson to be drawn then from the fair is this. Let every man who raises corn, remember the kind he saw there and try to raise better and more of it. Let every man that saw good horses shown there, try to breed better ones; let every man that saw anything exhibited there, do everything he can to improve his stock, crops or whatever else he may own or possess. And everyone will reap tlie benefit. Remember the old say ins if Emerson when he advised young men to hitch their wagons to a star. You needn't hitch yours to a star, but by all means don't hitch anything lower than a comet. Halley's for instance.

And then next year, when the fair comes around again, maybe there will be someone else who will get the prizes and the honors of owning the hest that the county can produce. Jerusalem Water Supply. Ever since the days of Solomon, and probably before that, the water supply of Jerusalem has been a matter of some difficulty. Today Jerusalem, with its 80,000 Inhabitants, depends almost entirely on rain for its water supply, says the United States consul in a report, but in many cases the roofs and cisterns are filled with surface water, and the nnsjinifjirv elements with which the water is impregnated are held responsible for a large percentage of the fevers and other diseases prevalent towards the end of the dry season. About seven and one-half miles to the south on the carriage road to Hebron are three enormous reservoirs known as Solomon's Pools. These were constructed in the bed of a valley, across which heavy walls were thrown and cemented, and are large enough to contain 3.000,000 gallons of water. From these pools there was a masonry aqueduct built, said to have been the work of Solomon, which carried the water to the temple In Jerusalem. At one point this conduit went through a mountain by a tunnel. In the second century the Romans, probably under Pontius Pilate, began to execute a most ambitious scheme, which they seemingly were never able to finish. The present scheme is to pump water from Ain Farrah, a fountain about twelve or thirteen kilometers to the northeast of Jerusalem and 50ft meters lower. The water is of the best quality, and gushes out from beneath solid rock cliffs. Went the Way of Others. Last year when the Scott bill which proposed to prevent speculation in 1 cotton futures was before congress a number of cotton manufacturers, In-1 1 eluding Lewis W. Parker of Greenville. S. C., appeared before the committee in support of the bill. At the same time a well-known cotton broker of the south voluntarily appeared bei fore the committee and very vigorously defended the Xew York Cotton Exchange. A few days ago this same cotton broker attempted suicide and this - week the failure of his firm by reason 1 of cotton speculation has been announced. When he appeared before the comi I mliiuo Vic ivac ronnrtpH a a heinc a winner by several hundred thousand dollars, but his end was like all others who have tried to beat the New 1 York Cotton Exchange game and his profits vanished and became losses. To enter a poker game against sharps using marked cards is no more risk than dealing with cotton futures under the present system. Every town in the south can point to men and firms who met disaster because of cotton speculation and almost every graveyard has its suicide who could not face the world when the chalk marks upon the blackboard of the cotton exchange went against him.?Textile Manufacturer.
