Humorous ilrpartmrnt.
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! 'It
'im with this!"?Answers.

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

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 you
will find yourselves and yours improvf"

ed and not only you and yours, but
everyone and everyone else. 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

who have tried to beat the New

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

because of cotton speculation and almost
every graveyard has its suicide
