and she shall bring thee to honor when

sion ol the lext win to delitto what wis

synonomous, and as such he would con

Lord thj' God with all th' might, soul

Last Saturday nighi, soon after the

ed aside Mr. Mays, one of the gentle-

and told him a long story, the short of
which is that he had determined to
move Irom Canada to Pulaski, Tenn.;
that he bad just 6uoutrh money to bend
his family on the train, and walk him-
sell; that he had walked here, and hap
pened to get here just as the train did;
that he was tired, without money, aud
would like to get a free 1 xlging. Mr.
Mays replied that if he were convinced
that the stranger's story was true he
would rather take care of him for noth
ing than not. The stranger insisted on
his story being true, and finally Mr.
Mays consented to take care of him, and
sent him up to one of his best rooms.

A I.lely ,Heenl Xeelj'i
A lew days ago, B-m and Dave, two
butchers, bought a yearling be-M Irom
Milton Neely. Itsee.ns that they have
two modes of catching beeves when in
au open field; one is by the lasso, and
the other is by setting two large dogs
after the beef. They tried the bitter
mode on the above mentioned cilf. As
soon as the yearling found whit was to
pay, he dashed oil at full spend arou i d
the open lot above the mill, the dogs
closely pres.iui: behind. $ The yearling
linding that this would uot do, directed
his course toward the creek, which was
very much swollen by the late rains,
and as the last alternative plunged
headlong in'o thn turbid waters. One
of the dogs immediately followed and
seized the calf by the ear, and struggled
hordto bring the yearling to bank; but
the swift current was too strong for
him, and in another second they were
borne over the high dam, with a terrible
splash, down to the angry boils, resem
bling some lare log we have seen, com
ing up only to be driven back by the
roaring torrcut thit pours down upon
it. The faithful dog concluded, it seems
that life has enough of ups and downs
without this kind of churning, aud re
linquished his hold. Strange to say,
when they thus pirted the calf was the
first to get out. On reaching the bank,
the calf seemed much more docile than
before, and in this condition was easily
slaughtered. We don't supposed a
more thoroughly washed piece of beef
ever entered our market.
An old Incident.
A prominent citizen and mercumt. of
this place tells this joke on himself :
Nearly a half century ago, when he
was a young man about eighteen years
of age, he was a clerk in the house now
occupied by C. N. Walker. One Sun
d ly morning, not feeling very devotion
al, he took a novel, reclined upon his
bed, and began to read. Becoming
drowsy he unconsciously lell asleep. Iu
a short time two robbers entered tho
room, armed with heavy clubs. They
came up towards the foot of the bed,
aud passed towards tho head. So terri
bly was be alarmed that ho became, as
it were, spell-bound, and could not
move for some minutes, which period
seemed au ago to him, as he expected
each second to have his brains knocked
out. As soon as he got control of him
self sufficiently, he sprang into the mid
dle of the floor, and seized a chair. He
soon discarded this weapon and picked
up a large billet of wood. By this time
the robbers had disappeared, and as he
thought gone into the sales-room.
Cau.iously approaching the door club
in hand he stood for some miuutcs.
From the front transum sutlicient light
was admitted for him to see that tiie
robbers were not in that room. Turn
ing around his eyes fell upon the cellar
door, st anding half ajar. As a lion or
tiger springs upon its prey, so he sprang
to the door, and quick as a flash turned
the key. He had them, sale. He then
weut to the door leading to the street,
and waited an hour before he could see
anj' one to help him secure his pris
oners. It being Sundiy morniug, but
few ieople were upon the streets. Fi
nally, he saw two men aud called for
help. He stated the whole circumstance
to them. Being thoroughly armed
the trio began todescend the ceiiargteps
slowly and cautiously, our hero iu the
the van. The cellar was dark, and full
of barrels, boxes and debris. The search
was continued for some time but with
out success. Each moment the search
ers expected the robbers would spring
from their hiding places, and a deadly
contest would ensue. Our hero broke
the deathlike silence. Turning quicks
ly back towards his assistants, he said
in tremulous tones, for his throat was
husky Irom excitement ,"the robbers
are the two men raised clubs and
awaited breathlessly but the fearful
dream, which had so terribly impressed
him that he could not lealize but that it
was a fact.

We mentioned so ne w.'.-ks since that M r
William Grigsby, who removed Irom this
county, a year ago last fall, to tin; neighbor
hood of ( 'oi sicana, Texas, had lost three of
this chilili-.-n, .Mary, Lizzie aud Charles, all
grown, and now we have to announce the
death ol Mr. Grigsby himself, who died on
the 'id of last month. They died of malarial
f.-ver. Several other members of the family
had the disease, though in a comparatively
mild form, and recovered from its effects.
Mr. Grigsby was a quiet, uno'itrmlve citi
zen, esteemed by all who kuew him for his
sterling integrity of character, and his
death, aud that of hischildren, will be sin
cerely regretted by his many friends In
Maury and Williamson, whose deepestsym-
iiathv will attend the surviving members of
his family in their sad bereavements.

We have had au abundauce of rain
during the past week. The river was
very high last Friday, but not as full as
it, was last spring. A groat many rafts
run this tide; our esteemed friend, T, S.
Lei'twich, started down the river with
his large timber raft, which contained
about 100,000 feet of hewn timber, last
Siturday. Maybe land safe, aud meet
with ready sale, for his timber, which
ho doubtless will, as he has the exper
ienced navigator, A. J. Huey, with him.
There was an oyster supper at Joel S.
Rieves'onthe night of the 22ud; they
had a nice supper. The soup was splen
did, and redacted great credit on those
who mailo it. The young folks had
quite a lively time; they chased the
glowing hours with flying fleet until
morning. There were some slight ol
hand performances some time during the
niht; W. A. Barker lost his hat, sad
dle and blanket. His s bile was chang
ed through mistake, but he could find
no trace of his hat as there was no hat
left; it is evident there was no exchange
made. Willie says he doesn't like that
way of swapping not getting any thing
in return.
Mr. Littlejohn is putting up a nice

Jo th? Editors uj the Culumhia Herald.
In the last Rally Hill Items, I see the
printer, through mistake, left out part
of the announcement of Mr. Sam Rog
ers' marriage notice. The part left out
was: "On the 1-Uh inst., Mr. Samuel
llogors brought home his intellectual
and accomplished wife." Mr. Rogers is
one ot the first citizens on Flat Creek.
The frionds of Mr. John G. Horsley ex
tend to you their sympathy. He pos
sess"d the warmest feelings of respect
and tho unbounded confidence of bis
friends in this portiou of the county,
and his loss is looked upon in this com
intinitv as a loss to the county at large.
Flat Creek is profoundly pleased at the
election of Andrew Johnson-, as the one
great step towards Nationalizing the
Democratic party of the South. The
Democratic outlook is now certainly
most favorable. Flat Ckekk.
MFKIKU 11 1 I.I. li li t S,
The Rev. R. P. Ransom, Presiding
Elder of Franklin District, has been
I with us again, holding his second quar
terly meeting, and preaching with bis
accustomed acceptability. It is a 'la
mentable and noticeable lad that the
salaries of the preachers of the Method
ist Church are generally falling short.
It may be true of ministers of other dt
nominations also. It is greatly to be
regretted that whenever a pressure in
money matters is felt by the people,
the curtailment of expenses begins with
the preacher's salar'. This may be ac
counted for in part from the fact that hs
a general thing no legal pressure can be
brought to bear in the collection of
these claims. The people of this com
munity Lave ever been generous, libe
ral and just, in meeting the demaudsof
the gospel, aud it is devoutly to be hop
ed that this year will not prove an ex
ception, but that ail will come up with
their "tithes and offerings" and make
glad the hearts of God's servants and ot
their wives and littlo ones, and thus
''lay up for themselves treasures in
heaven.", Wheu the lamented John W,
Cheairs was a clerk in a store in Nash
ville, in his boyhood days, he was solic
ited by an old steward of the Methodist
Church to give something to the support
of the gospel. He replied, "not a mem
ber of the church." Then replied the
venerable steward, "Your giving to the
cause of God will be laying up treasure
in heaven." Then came the noble re
sponse, "I am not a Christian, but I
want to take stock up there." With
this came a liberal subscription, with
the cash. From that da y on, God bless
ed him with the ability to give, and no
man ever contributed more liberally
than did he, not only to the support of
the gospel, but to the various benevo
lent and charitable enterprises ol the
age. May all ol us emulate his exam
pie, and share with him the rich inheri
tance of treasures in heaven.
Mr. Robert W, McLemore, jr., has
been absent in Arkansas for several

The rain of Wednesday night of last
week was the most destructive of any
we have had fors9veral years past. The
injury to tho open land is inc ticulable
Loosened up the late freezes, it was ea
sily swept off, just as if it had been
freshly plowed. It seems, however, to
have benefited the wheat crop, pressing
the earth more closely to the roots of
the plant, much of which had been par
tially "spewed" out of the ground by
thelreezes. Capt. H. P. Pointer says
this lreshet was less destructive to the
fencing, water-gaps, etc-, on hid place
than the flood ol 1S72, but on McCutch
en, Kuou, and Rutherford creeks the
damage was heavy.
John W. Cheairs ct Co. have secured
the services of Sammie CV.perton as clerk
aud salesman in their liberally patron
ized dry-goods store, while J. W- Alex
ander has James Odel in his house, and
Mr. Albeit Alexander has Don Molloy
as his clerk. Three nicer, better or
more moral young men than tho above
uamed clerks, cannot be found iu any
community. All our merchants seem
to be doiug a thriving business, and are
standing firm amid the pressure ol the
times.
Mr. Alouzo McKissack, our druggist,
has a well ordered and handsome estab
lishment, which he manages with the
sangfroid of a master ot the profession.
Itideed, take our dry-goods aud grocery
merchants, together with our druggists,
physicians, mechanics and ali; they
will compare favorably with t'u3 same
classes to be found in any other com
munity in point of intelligence, moral
worth and all that it takes to make good
citizenship, while the surrouuding pop
ulation is unsurpassed.
Last week's Herald and M tii comes
to us in mourning, on account of the
death of John G. Hoksi.ky, Ksq. The
sad event is mentioned in words of ten
derness and affection by Mr. Figuers,
Juuior Proprietor ol the paper, which
meots a cordial response and touches a
sympathetic chord in the hearts of hu n
dreds of the friends of the deceased in
this county, where by his sterling moral
worth and sound practical sense he had
gained Ihe esteem and goodwill of all
who knew him, and at tho timg of his
doath was one ot most popular mon in
the county. In the vig-ir of manhood,

of usefulness, which was steadily ex

Spring Hill can now boast of two ex
cellent schools, one taught by Mrs.
Mooney, a lady of rare ability as an ed
ucator. We hope she will bo liberally
patronized. Prof. Middlelon, of Giles
county, opened a male school in the old
Male Academy last Monday. The Pros
fossor comes highly recommended, and
we sincerely trust he will succeed in
build a large and flourishing school.
Ewell Grange, at Spring Hill, is in a
flourishing condition. Mauy new mem
bers are joining.
There will bo a large crop of tobacco
planted around Spring Hill this season.
Before the war this was a fayorito crop.
The high price of the woed has induced
many old planters to resume planting it.
Capt. Ben. Rogers recently tapped
fifty sugar trees, on his beautiful little
farm, and made molasses and sugar out
of it. The trees furnish about a barrel
of sugar water every day, which pro
duces one gallon and a half of the best
molasses that ever rotted a boy's tooth.
