A SWEEPING CHALLENGE FROM
ALPHA OF COUNTIES.
?he "First County In the.Stace"
Her Banter to tn? Commonwealth
Glorious Times at the Abbeville Fair
[FROH OtTB OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
ABBEVILLE C. H., November 1.
Were I to speak simply my feelings for
glorious old County of Abbeville, I would sav
three oheers and. an encore. She stands
the alphabetical bead, and Justly deserves
position agriculturally amongst the sister
hood of counties. Let each speak for them
selves. Abbeville banters the Slate at
Columbia Fair of 1873. She ventures to as
' sert she can show at that time more well
stock, better samples of field crops,
splendid specimens of the handiwork of
fair daughters, better horsemen amongst
sons, and prettier women amongst
daughters than any county lu the State. What
county will accept the banter ?
Messrs. Editors, why don't you attend or
eead representatives to our county fairs ? Ton
would meet with a welcome, and you would
experience an honest hospitality no where
else, and at no other time administered in
or outjjf the State. And then, too, yon would
"rub against white folks" all the time, ?or
though, politically, we are shrouded lu dark
ness most of the time, this all becomes dis
pelted at our fairs, because they call out the
people, and "by the people," I mean those who
lately stayed at home when the political elec?
tions failed to excite Interest enough to bring
them ont. Be sure to come to our lair next
fall, for we Intend to show you how a man can
run when he is tied up in a bag, and who can
slip down the greased pole the quickest, and
will leave for yon to Judge who ls the best
rider, for really every man and boy In the
county rides so well, he thinks the world can't
You should have been here during the past
week. Kentucky's best were here, both man
and hone, and yet Abbeville held her own
with both. Canada waa represented, but
"shoo fly, don't bodder" Abbeville. Two year
old oolts that Kentuckians thought "hard to
beat in Lexington;" sucking colts that the
world couldn't beat; three year olds that
. would do credit to any country, and so on
tin yon reach the "two-forty nags," were scat?
tered all over the grounds. And then walk
around that romantic spot where the babbling
brook supplied maa sind beast with Nature's
purest beverage, (and sometimes art helped
Ute draught amazingly,) and you could never
lack for the sight of a be a util ul animal. The
stately Durham, the beautiful Devon, the
nimble Brahmin, the sterling Ayreshlre and
the bardy scrub were all there. And sheep I
Why yon should have seen them. Wool as
floe as silk, horns as long as your arm, and
rams as ugly aa the-. Yes, you know
what I mean. Well they were all there.
And the beautiful Berkshires, the compact
Essex, the bardy grades of the coarse-hatred
native, rooters, were as thick as could be
desired. ' . ,
Bot. why dwell solong on the stock ? Let j
os look into, the "Floral Hall," and what do j
we see ? Is It flowers ? Not much, but bales I
_cuy cotton and native hay, and clover hayM,
and pea-vine hay, and wool/and lots of j
bushels of every kind of grain that was ever IJ
grown anywhere in the worid,it seemed to me. I j
And thea up-stairs-roast pig, bolled ham, I '
batter, bread, cakes, Jellies, Jams, fruit and I ?
wine. Doa't lt make your mouth water' n
Why it was a sort o? Noah's Arie in the house- 11
bold department. Nowhere did I see de-1'
flclenoy until I looked for the handy-work o? 11
the tiny Angers of the women of Abbeville.
The tatting and twisting and knitting, and I
quilts and couaterpanes, &c., ftc, were not-l
so numerous as heretofore; and why not ? I
could not tell, unless it was tbatTtheladles I
were more interested In the outdoor sports I
than the display of their own labors, for I j
beard a venerable lady say, "Ob, if I was only I
a man and was rich, I would own the finest
horses Ut tba world." I could not blame her,
however, for she made the remark when ten
boys, the oldest not fifteen and the youngest
not twelve, were riding for a premium.
Oh, I wish you could have seen that display.
Every one of them on a horse supplied by I
mme of oar Kentucky friends or other exhlb-1
itors7 and yet the Utile fellows rode like
Comanche Indian?, and with more grace than
the Dake of Wellington. Th? committee
could not decide to whom to give the pre- j
mlum, so oat of their owa purses they con- J
tributed enough to award a premium to each I
of the. tea contestants, giving* the first to I
Master David Aiken, son of our president.
Bight here let me make a correction in an
editorial of yours last week. You reported
Colon el Aiken as our president. He was pres?
ident for three years, but during the past year
Captain P. IL Bradley has been our president,
and last olght Colonel Aiken was again elect
ed, and the board of directors revised so as to
get our best working men on the list; and now
the association sets out with a prospect ot be
lng In a few years an institution that will de
clare a dividend to its stockholders, beside I
giving them the privilege of exhibiting all
articles free of cost, and attending (he fairs
with their lam liles without money and without
price. Can't I induce yon to take stock ?
Many of the successful contestants who re-1
oelved premiums amounting to ten dollars j
declined taking them, and asked for scrip en- I
titling them to one share of stock in the com- I
pany, this stock being worth ten dollars per I
share. This ls a capital procedure, for lt will I
most assuredly build up the Institution, and
make its^tock la a few years demand a pre-1
. These people certainly have a splendid conn
try, and they seem to know lt, for I seldom
meet a man that wants to emigrate. They I
seem to think Abbeville ls the spot. And I
doubt If they are not correct ia their judg?
ment, for surely 1 have never met, nor have
you, a flaer body of mea ead a prettier collec-1
tlou ol women than congregate here during
fair week. I hope at the next fair in Ootober,
1873, THU "NEWS will be represented here in I
propria persona, and then you can speak for I
yourself, even if you be like the boy the cow
ran over-have nothing to say.
Yery truly, A. C. H. j

THE LAST AHB MOST CHARMING OF
THE ARTHURIAN IDYLLS.
Gareth and Lynette!
Tbe growth of Tennyson's greatest work, lo
the field of narrative rather than emotional
poetry, has been one ot many years. The end
of the last decade Baw the first of the "Id jilt
of the Klug," and to-day the last of this series
of Arthurian romances completes the cycle.
"Gareth and LyDette" does not follow In
order. "Guinevere" bas already ended the
serle?, and "The Last Tournament" has been
interjected. This Idyll follows "The Coming
of Arthur," where it finds an appropriate
place as an episode of the palmy days of the
Bound Table, when honor and purity existed
unsullied In Camelot, and when
- out of bower and casement shyly danced
Eyes of nure women, wholesome stars of love;
And all about a healthful people stept
As lu the presence of a gracions king.
The poem not only shows no sign of flag?
ging interest or waning power in the narra?
tor, but ls as fresh In Incident, as rioh In
laney and more free from all trace of over?
strained sentiment than most of the others.
It also is written in a brighter and livelier
mood. The severe laureate seldom designs to
make his readers smile; but his picture of the
fair and mocking Lynette ls as mirthful as lt
la charming, and Kay, the grumbling old
seneschal, 1B an excellent comedy character.
The story ls not weighted with any of those
moral problems that Tennyson sometimes
broods over In his verae. It veils no metaphy?
sics and opens up no vistas of speculation; but
tells directly, though with much beautiful
Illustration, the tale ol a bright and good boy
whose sole thought and desire ls to become a
knight of Arthur's court. Gareth was the son
of Belllcent, a widow. He was of noble
lineage and full of courage and ambition.
Having long entreated his mother in vain lor
permission to leave their quiet castle and to
seek service with the king, she at last con?
sents, provided Gareth will submit to one con?
dition which she ls to impose, and that ls that
he shall go disguised to Arthur's hall and bire
ilmseif to serve as a kitchen scullion for a
pear and a day. Nor 1B he to tell bis true
lame to any one during that lime. The poor
mother hopes that her boy's pride will revolt
rom such a condition, but he accepts it and
raes to Camelot. . There, ascending to the
jreat audience chamber, he finds the king
surrounded by his knights and sitting in Judg?
ment. Tbe scene is strikingly portrayed, and
ive extract a portion of lt:
Then Into hall Gareth asocndlng heard
s. velen, the voice of Arthur, and beheld
Far over heads in that long-vaulted hall
The splendor of the presence of the Ring
Throned, and delivering dcom-and look'd no
Jot felt his young heart hammering In bis ears,
ind thought. "For this hair shadow of a lie
The truthiul Biog will doom me when I speak."
Then came a widow cry lag to the King,
'A boon, air Ringi Thy father, Other, reft
rrom my dead Iori a titi I with vt lenee;
"or howsoe'er at first he proffered gold,
i et, for the field was pleasant In our eyes,
Ve yielded not; and then he reit us or (t
?errorce, and left us neither gold nor new."
Said Arthur, ?'Whether would ye? gold or Hold ?"
?o whom the woman weeping, "Nay, my lord,
?he field was pleasant In my husbaud's eye."
And Arthur, "Have thy pleasant Held again,
ind thrice the gold for Ut h er's use t??feof,_.
Lccordlng to the years. No boou ls here, -- >
int justice, so thy say be proven true,
icoursed, who ?roui i hs wrongs his lather did
rVoul J shape himself a right l"
And while che past,
jame jet. ano'her widow crying to him.
'A boon, Slr Kin ii I Thine enemy, King, am I,
?Vlth thine own hand thuu sie weit my aear lord,
L knight of Other tn the Baron?' w.tr,
When Lot and many another rose and rought
vgaio?t thee, saying thou wert basely born,
held with these, a id loathe to ask thee aught,
iet lo I my husband's brother had my son
Thralled lu bia castle, and hath starved him dead;
ind Btaudeth seized of that inheritance
?Vhlch i bon that aleweat the aire hast left the son,
3o tho' I scarce can ask lt thee for hate,
jrant mo aime knight to do the battle for me, .
ii. l the foul t hier, and wreak me for my son."
Then strode a good knight forward, crying to
'A boon, Slr King l I am her kinsman. L
31ve me to right her wrong, and slay the man."
Then came Slr Kay, the seneschal, and cried,
<A boon, Slr King ' ev'u that thou grant her
This railer, that hath m ck'd thea in fall ball
sone; or the wholesome boon or gyve and gag."
But Arthur, "We alt, Ring, to help the wrong'd
Thro' ail our realm. The woman loves ber lord,
toace to thee, woman, with thy loves and hates I
The kings or old had doomed 'nee to the flamen.
Aurelius Emrya would have scourged thee dead,
ind lither slit thy tongue, but get thee hence
?est that rough humor of the kings or old
letun? upoa me I Thou that art her kin,
Jo likewi-e; lay him low and slay him not,
But bring him here/that 1 may Judge the right,
according to the jubt ce of the King;
Then, be ne guilty, by that deathless King
rVho lived and died for men, the mau ahau die."
And many another suppliant crying came
?Vlth noise of ravage wrought by beast and man,
tnd evermore a knight wonld ride away.
Last Gareth, leaning both hands heavily
Down on tho shoulders or the twain, his men,
ipproaoh'd between them toward the King, and
"A boon, sir King (lils voice was all ashamed,)
For see ye not how weak and bungerworn
l Beem-lean in if on these ? grant roe to serve
Por meat and drink among thy kitchen knaves
A twelvemonth and a day, nor seek my name,
Hereatter I will fight."
To him the King,
"A goodly youth, and worth a goodlier boon I
But an thou wilt no goodlier, tuen must Kay,
Ibe master OL the meats and drlnka, be thine."
Gareth's life among the kitchen louts was by
no means an agreeable one; and Kay, out ol
sheer perversity, made lt all the harder. But
the youthful spirit was not disheartened, and
every menial duty was thoroughly performed.
Meantime his mother repents ot the hardship
she has put upon her son, and sends him arms
and frees bim from his promise. Thereupon
Gareth goes straightway to the king and con?
fesses the slight deceit that he has practiced,
bul begs the king's forgiveness and permission
to go upon the next knightly quest that shall
offer; but he begs the king to still regard him
as a menial until such time as he shall have
proved himself worthy to be a knight. The
request Is granted, and soon after, at an au?
dience in the council hall, the young and beau?
tiful Lynette comes to beg of the king that
Launcelot may be sent to free her Bister, the
lair Lyonorn, who 1B shut up in Castle Peril
our, where "a river runs injtbree loops about
her living-place," each passage guarded by
one of three formidable brothers, with a
fourth, more terrible, In possession within
Gareth claims the quest, and, in pursuance
of the promise, but to the intense disgust und
indignation of Lynette, who sees in bim only
a kitchen knave, lt ls assigned to bim. They
ride away, Lynette disdaining his company
and ridiculing his pretensions with fierce re
Tilings. At last they come to where the first
of the hostile knights ls stationed:
Then to the shore or one of those long loops
Wherethro' the serpent river coli'd, tbey came.
Rough .; hi cte ted were the banks and steep; the
Full, narrow; this a bridge of single arc
Took at a leap; and on the fur- her aide
Arese a si ken pavilion, gay with gold
In streaks and ray*, and all L>-nt-li.y m hue,
Save that tl e dome was purple, and above,
crimson, a Blender banneret fluttering,
And theretofore the lawless warrior paced
Unarm'd, and caning, "Damsel, ls thia he,
The chaTplon ye have brought from Arthur's
For whom we let thee pasi." "Nay, nay," she
"Slr norning star. The King In utter scorn
Or thee and thy mnch folly hath aent thee here
His kitchen-knave; and look thou to thyself:
See that he fall not on thee suddenly,
And slay thea nnarm'd: he is not knight, but
And he that bore
The star, being mounted, cried from o'er the
"A kitchen-knave, and sent io scorn of me l
Such fight not I, bat answer scorn with scorn.
For thlB were ?hame to do bim further wrong
Tnan cet bim on bia feet, an J take ma home
And arms, and so return him to the King.
Come therefore, leave thy lady lightly, knave. <
Avoid: for lt beseemed not a knave
To ride with each a lady."
"Dog, thou Heat.
I spring from loftier lineage than thine own."
He spake; and all at Aery speed the t * o
Shock'd on the central bridge, and either spear
Bent but not brake, and diner knight at once,
Hurl'd as a stone from out of a catapult
Heyond his horse's crupper and the bruise,
Fell, as If dead: but quickly rose and drew,
And Gareth lash'd so flercelyi%lth bis brand
He drave his enemy backward uown the bridge,
The damsel crying, " Wefi-strioken, kitchen
knave I" B
Till Gareth's shield was cloven; but one stroke
Laid bim that clove lt gro veiling on the-grtund.
Then cried the rall'n, "Take not my life; I
And Gareth, "So t his a am sel ?sk lt of me,
Good-I accord lt easily as a ?race."
She reddening, ' Inaoient scuMoa. I of thee?
I bound to thee for any favor aak'd l"
'Then sball he die." And uaretu there unlaced
Hts helmet as to slay htm, bnt ano sbrlek'd,
"Be not do nardy, scullion, as to slay
One nobler than th y sel r." "Damsel, thy charge
u an abounding pleasure to me. Knight,
Thy lire ls thine at her command. Arise
And quickly pass to Arthur's hall, and say
His kltchen-knavehath sent thee. See thoo crave
His pardon for thy breaking of his laws.
Myself, when I return, will plead for thee.
Thy shield ls mine-farewell; and, damsel, thou
Lead, and I follow." [r
Lynette now begins to'think better ol her
Knave, when I watched thee striking on the
The Ka vor or thy kitchen came upon me
A little tain tiler; but the wind hath changed :
i scent lr. twenty-fold." And tnen she sang,
"0 morning star, that amliejt in the blue,
0 star, my morning dream hath proven true,
Smile sweetly, thou I my l J ve hath amded ou me."
This song of Lynette ls 'one of those dainty
lyrics that Tennyson Is sq* fond of Incorporat?
ing in his narrative poems. It ls charmingly
Intercalated with remarks which show the
gradual decadence of disgust In Lynette's
mind, and the slow growth of admiration and
of .love. - Thus, when the second brother,
calling himself the "Noonday Bun," ls over?
thrown In a combat in mid-stream, Lynette
sings, Interspersing her verses with remarks
depreciatory of Gareth :
" '0 Sun' (not this strong fool whom thou,'slr
Hast overthrown thro' mere unhappiness,)
.0 Son. that wakenrst all wjaitss or pam,
0 moon, that layest all to sleep again,
Shine sweetly-twice my love hath smiled on
me.' " I '.
"What kno west thou of love song or of love?
Nay. nay. God wot, so thoa we: t nobly born,
Thou bast a plea*ant presence. Tea, perchance
" '0 dewy no were that open to the sun,
0 dewy flowers that close when day ls done,
Blow sweetly-twice my love bath emited on me.'
"What knnwest thou of flowers, except belike.
To garnish meats with? Hath not our good King,
Wno lent me mee, the flower of kltchendom,
A foolish love tor flowers? What stick ye round
The pasty ? Wherewithal dook the boar's head ?
Flowers ? Nay, the ooar hath rosemaries and bay.
" '0 birds that warble to the morning sky,
0 birds that warble as the day goes by,
Sing sweetly-twice my love hath tinned on me.' "
" 'What knowest thou of birds, lark, mavis,
merle. ~~ - -
i^.--? What, dream ye whan th?y utter forth
Ma - -music growing with the grow og light,
Tn el r sweet son-wu rv hi p ? These be for the snare,
(So rnna thy fancy.) these bs for the spit,
Larding and basting."
But when the third champion Is vanquished,
Lynette Bings her third canticle and accepts
Gareth as a worthy knight:
"I lead no longer; ride thou at my side;
Thou art the kingliest of all kitchen-knaves.
" '0 trefoil, sparkling on the rainy plain,
0 rainbow, wltn three colors after rain,
Shine sweetly ; thrice my love bath smiled on mc.'
It ls only when Gareth Bleeps in the mysti?
cal cavern, to gather strength for the final
combat with the last guardian ot the Lady
ot 'Lyonore, that Lynette allows her heart to
speak. The scene and the words are among
the best passagee ol the poem:
Nigh upon that hour
When the lone hem rorgaia his melancholy,
Lets down bis other leg, and stretchlog dreams V
Of goodly t upper in the distant pool,
Then tarn'd the noble damsel smillog at him,
And told bim of a cavern bud at hand,
Where bread and bj ken meats and good red wine
Of Southland, which the Lad 7 Lyon ors
Had sent her coming champion, waited him.
Anon they passed a narrow comb wherein

As will be seen from the extracts we have
made Irom this Idyll, it ls full of delicate
landes and noble thought, clothed In language
that ls at once elevated and simple. It has
the romantic Interest Inseparable irom all these
tales of malled warriors falling upon each
other In deadly fight. Old as they are, and
familiar as ls the paraphernalia of closed
visors, rushing steeds, splintered lances, and
flashing swords, lhere ls a stirring charm
about them that never quite wears efl*. Be?
sides, Tennyson has worked out his story
quite dramatically, and carries us on with
heightening Interest to the close. The poem
will be found lull of suggestions for the pencil
of the Illustrator, and we are confident will
be the most generally popular ol all the Idylls
of the King.
