unbent to tlmt degree that I occasionally
attended their dances, or “shin digs." as
them Cracks called this social function.
“ 'Over on Heifer creek, at Bull's Gap.
in Buttermilk Cove, Cow-Eta County,
Georgy, there was a shin dig that collect
ed mighty near every Cracker, male and
female, for 20 miles. There was one awful
pooty girl present. She was a human
hollyhock, round, and strong, with eyes
like stars, and the minute l seen her 1
ptoceeded to cotton up to her, as soft as
goose grease.
“ ‘As you can see, T am right smart of

a flutter mill, it wasn't long before l had
a ripe tomato mash on that mountain

way I handed them Rube's the latest

"The Buzzard Lope,” the “Piney Woods

sidled up to where we wore sitting and
drawled: "IJfus Higglnbottom wants to
see you !n the next room."
"‘About a doaen long haired, lank six

room waiting to see the fun. My yellow

inches, with a neck like a washtub, who
standing by a pine table on which
there was but one ^single light, given
forth by u sputtering tallow candle. This
here shaggy and forbidding outlaw threw
a coupl© of Bowieknives down on the
table, and then he said, mighty supercil
lious: "Stranger, you have been getting
entirely too unanimous with my gal to

git busy, for 1 am going to carve you. If
you don’t light, we’una will string you

with the# glittering knife flashing in

trembling hands to /he floor./ In an

have plunged into my unprotected
breast, but a sudden inspiration flashed
into my dazed mind. Acting on the

REVIVAL OF CUSTOMS OF ANCIENT DAYS
MRS TtEGlMALD DE KCWENL
Time was set buck more than three hundred years for a company of two
hundred and fifty men and women of Eastern society. In proper costumes
they made a faithful picture of the era of Queen Elizabeth, and their surround
ings. the new home of Mr. aud Mrs. Reginald de Koven, in New York, which
is typical of the Tudor style of architecture, with its centred arches, shallow
mouldings and profusion of panelling, was an appropriate sotting for the
event—an Elizabethan fete. .
Historical suggestion did not stop with the costumes and architecture,
howevrr. At the supper hour all the guests, living pictures of the times of
»ood Queen Bess,” sat upon benches before a long plain board destitute of
modern nnpery.
In the midst of the carefully thought out revival of ancient days stood out

“Each man pocketed a list lull of cigarsi

"George rubbed his hands together and
obsequiously aske£. ‘Well, gentlemen,
what was the bet?’
“The slowest talking customer answered
with a drawl: ‘Why, we'er, wagered a

Rill, here, he bets that 1t will-er, hit

The sewing machine agent tele that
It was his turn to contribute to the
education of the gang, so he, proceeded
as follows: "There Is a nigger portur
for tho Buster House at Jayville, with
a voice onto him like a syren steam
whistle. When tho train stops at that
village that porler opens up like u
dynamite explosion in a phonograph
factory. If the locomotive pops off
steam while that nigger is rooting for
his hotel that nigger’s voire makes tho
feeble effort of the engine sound like
the wind blowing through the key
hole. The coon is as black as a erco
soted crosstie, bowloggerl and has a
mouth like the Amazon river. Of course
his name Is "Andy"—a niger of that
description just couldn't have any oth
er name.
"Not long silico 1 got off the cars at
that village, and Andy proceeded to
bust my car drums with his grand op
erv whoops about th© Buster house.
My hat had got bunged up in colliding
with th* side of-the ear, and T wanted
.to gdt that Derby slicked up and'clean
ed. so I sidled up to Andy and asked
him In a low tone, 'Is there any haber
dashery here?* Any dropped Ills voice
so that it couldn't be heard more than
three hundred yards away, and asked
me 111 a tone that was meant to be a
whisper, 'What's flat you say, boss?’ 1
repeated the question. And he scratched
Ills wool and moved up close to me,
saying, ‘Boss, I knows most of deni
dictionary words you drummers hand
out, but this one sorter complexuates
my circumstances. Then, winking at
me knowingly, he whispered: 'Boss,
does you want a game of pokali—or id"
you after whisky?'
"As f am a minister of the gospel
and a prohibitionist, as well as the
agent for the beat pracitcal sewing
machine ever invented by mail and
the only automatic, self-reversing,
self-running, self-righteous, three-ply

short while ago T made him n visit, at
is tavern, and while we were seated
in rocking chairs, finding new vir
tues in Old Dick's liquor, and discuss
ing things mutual, that landlord cuts
in with observations something like
tjjis:
“‘Talking about that blame bnbboon
of a nigger porter,-that Andy nigger,
sah, he hasn't got any more judgment
than a scared bull! A month ago that
blankctty blank fool of a nigger por
ter come prancing up here with a pin
feather preacher from the north, some
where, instead of sawing him off on
the opposition hotel. Blamed nigger
idiot! He knowed 1 never charged a
minister of the gospel for grub, and
keep. I have got too dam much respect
for my religion to do that. To make it
still worse that cussed hiatus of on
ellipsis of .a nigger porter bedded down
the parson in our best front room; you
know a nigger thinks u preacher witli
a Jim-swlnger Prince Albert coat on,
is a bigger thing than the Pennermaw
canal! Yes. sah, he located that the
ological duck right In among my lace
curtins, and my private parafee-na-lcy,
Including the bottle on the mantle,
which is kept for strictly medical pur
poses. and when 1 want it, for a toddy,
and the deck of cards on the table, as
you have heretofore noticed. Jevver
hear of such fool conduct except from
a nigger porter? That travelling rev
erend sniffed—at the bottle, glared at
the paste boards and then he squared
around and begun on me powerful
vigrus. Says he. in a refrigerator tone
of voice:
.Brother Shuckere. what orthodox, cc
celesiastical denomination do you affiliate
with?" £ told him that right now, l
wasn't an active member of any organi
zation. except, the democrat tc party,
though f£ had once been a vivid proposi

and groaned like a horse with the colic,
and filtered some remarks through his
nose—“suclv awful ignorance? T am not
referring to carnal associations; like thoaa,
but £ asfl you if you belong to any
church?“ Told him j^ll my folks was
shouting, pisen, deepwater Baptists, but
f didn't feel like I had religion enough to
jlne that church, and get immersed, espe
cially as it always makes roe sick to get
wet.
•• Then, that billiou* reverend lit in
and ripped the democrats into doll rags,
snorted about the crude and unfounded
doctrine immersion, and roared at the
ignorance and vishiousnesn of us, south
ern folks, closing with a hectic state
ment that I needed a change of heart,
aifd that T was acting like nobody but
me. and that nigger porter, Andy, was
a going to get, to heaven!
"This jolting from a high collared di
vine who was devouring my grub, free,
grads and for nothing, sorter roused my
d&ndcr. I told him the democratic party
and the Baptist church was both old
enough to lake care of themselves—that
what we needed at our hotel vuis not
change of heart, but change of liver.
Notified him that our stylo of doing, and
our pattern of religion suited us, and
no didn't propose to change U because
some hyphenated, typho-malarial. clerical
ass from codfish Flats thought different.

CHINA’S GREAT NEED
IS HABIT OF READING
Sitay Lee Believes Hope of Republic
Lies in New School
System
From the Chicago Evening Past.
Those organizing the new Chinese re
public arc working only on the top anil
forgetting the poople, Is the opinion of
Prince Bitay Eee, of Ching Tine. Shan
Sc. China, a Manchu nobleman and a
graduate of Oxford, who is visiting Chi
cago.
The prince, though offered a post in the
cabinet of the republic, considered him
self too young for tho responsibly, since
he is still In his twenties, and decided to
see more of the world before taking up
the public duties for which his high birth
places him in line.
He was not reluctant to give his opinion
today of the course along which hr would
guide the infant republic if he had that
responsibility. In tho first place, he
would tell the Enropean powers and the
United States, which are haggling* over
the terms of a loan to finance tho new
government, to keep their money.
“I believe China is great enough to care
for her own needs.” lie said "A small
lax when spread over tho w hole vast pop
ulation would raise the needed amount.
It might cause some Immediate hard
ships, hut it would result In bettering
the condition of the people for all time to
come.
The form jjf government is net. so
greatly important. The condition of a
nation depends much more upon tin*
character and ability of its citizens. The
first tiling China needs is education, uni
versal education. Before anything else
Is attempted a great system of public
schools much like those you have in this
country must he established
"I should like to see every person In
China able to read. I should tike to see
them form the habit of reading as you
do in this country. Here, everywhere,
when you see people with a hit of time
on their hands they are not found sitting
with their hands folded and their brains
Inactive. They use It In reading a book,
a newspaper or something. And they
must gather some idea or hit of knowl- I
edge they did not have before every tlmo |
they do this.
"Education must ho the foundation.
Then a tight, form of government
must result because the people are
Intelligent enough to make their power
felt in demanding it. It is stupid to con
centrate all your effort on establishing
a governmental form only to find that
the mass of the people who must keep
it in operation are not well enough in
formed to use it.”
USING NEW MOTOR
FUEL IN ENGLAND
Benzoline. Paraffin and Alcohol May
Be Cheaply Converted for
Power
From the New York TIme*.\
Believing that it midht mean much as
n solution of the fuel problem which i <
now a forms of interest in the automo
bile world, members of the National
Highways protective Society ware not
a little interested yesterday in news of
a series of now fuels which have been
derived in England from gasoline, ben
zoline. paraffin and alcohol. It was said
that economies varying from ?S to oo
per cent luid been effected by the use
of. thftie fuels, although the cost of
producing them from the oils or spirits
from which they are derived was put
at not more than one-eighth of a
cent a gallon. Ool. Edward C. Cornell,
secretary of the society, had yesterday
an announcement of the results of ex
periments with these newf fuels, printed
| in the Eondon Standard and sent by
the society’s agent In %iat city. Ac
cording to this announcement, the pro
cess of preparing the fuels is the In
vention of G. 13. Heyl, chief consult
ing engineer of the Letters Patent Insur
ance company, and T. Thorne Blake.
It seems that the experiments have,
thus far been tried on an internal com
bustion engine driving an • electric
lighting set, but are now to be- niado
in a motor car on the road. Xo cliaugo
in the existing form of carburetor is
required save the reduction of the jet
or Inlet, to approximately one-half its
original size. When this has been done
the fuels operate successfully. In the
English newspaper .Mr. He.vl was quote* 1
as saying that the basis of the develop
ment was tHo discovery of a chemical
means of raising tlio temperature of
i the vapor and air at the moment of ex
plosion so as to secure more complete
combustion than has hitherto been ob
; tallied. Absence of small is one of the
| benefits claimed for the discovery. Mr.
| Ileyl was further quoted as follows:
"Even benzol can be transformed so
as to be efficiently worked without a
special vaporizer. Wc are hoping to
eventually produce an effective fuel for
motor cars and other oil engines from
crude oil."
