The epicure tilled his stomach with choicest food and exclaimed, "Fate cannot harm me, 1 have dined to-day," and so 1 have tilled ?iy heart with the sweets and comforts of home, and feel defiant of human misery. Fate cannot harm me, for my home is my castle where, as ! Blackstone says, "the king of Eng- \ land dare not enter uninvited." Hut an old man did enter not long ago and ! s2li(l hn rnmn tr* eta ? ?* . :? ** _ - - ? v * v? kj cii j <i i' I i il V i II 1 L> | was convenient. I Saw his baggage on | the iron seat in the verandah, lie said, "I travel free and lodge tree and mix with none but the best people, and so I have come to abide with you for n few days. 1 hope it is convenient." Well, it wasent convenient, for my .wife wa? at Rome and my daughters away, and I had never heard of him, and so I told him it was not convenient. He seemed surprised and askect me if 1 was a Virginian. 1 told him no, I was a Georgian, and he said that Virginians seemed to be scarce in this region and he feared that old Virginia hospitality had not reached here: that Hishop Nelson had entertained him in Atlanta, and he had found a welcome :imnni> 11 \r; l...... um,... ? ...w*?0 <? ! t ii ^iiiiauo. IIUI an? you going to do with me?" he asked. "I am In mo and can't walk; 1 was told yon had a carriage and would drivo me anywhere 1 wished to go." "No. sir. 1 have neither carriage nor buggy, but 1 will go down town and get a vehicle and take you anywhere you wish to go." Then he said Brother Healer told hint that if I would not take him, there was a poor widow across town who would, and he would speak to her. So t took him dure and left him, and will pay his bill of Brother Healer ilidcnt. There are religious tar nips as well as sinner tramps, and they are hoi angeis unawares. I was down in I ho wiregrass region for nearly two weeks, and have most pleasant mcrn?rics,of my new found friends, but the last day was the best, for 1 was on my journey home and counted the milestones iw we speeded along. llappy fares and loving kisses greeted me when 1 eanie, and here I am going to rest until the larder gets low and my wife insists that 1 had better make another venture. And now let the procession proceed. Let the war go on. it is none of ray begetting; it might have stopped at Santiago, hut our yankee brethren seem to love the nigger afar off and have bought 8,000,uoo at two dollars and a half a head, which was cheap enough if Spain eould have delivered the goods. Hut they have eoat ten times that now and are still iu the woods. We used to advertise our mnav.ays and say "Ten voiinrs reward ilunuway front thi subscriber my boy Dick, 2."? years old, f? feet 10 inehrs high, black complexion an 1 very Hat nose. The above reward will be paid on his delivery to me or bis lodgment in the nearest Jail." Why not try that on Agrvlnaldo and the other runaways? Hut if they catch them 1 don't know what they are going to do with them; they wouldent i let Aguinaldo set up a barber shop in Manila no move than they would in Hoston cr Chicago. 1'iofessor Council, who is president of the colored agricultural college in Alabama, understands this, lie is the smartest and | best leader ol his race, and when he speaks or writes to the public always Savs the liL'lit ihiiur i lmvn spect for him. but this awful muddle with China which was precipitated by our ag;resbion upon the Philippines, seems to have no end in right. Uev. I)r. Haiderman. oLNew York, who is said to be a very learned man. says that he demon, strated a year ago from scriptural prophecy that the present year would lind all the nation., at war, and there would he a mighty struggle between Russia and China, and that Russia would eventually gain the supremacy; but that for a time the hordes from China will break in an awful avallanche upon ttic western nations and1 the greed, the rapacity, the Christ less, j Godle.-s selfishness of European nations will get it3 reward, and there will he a terrible balance sheet against those Christian nations who have ; poisoned China with opium and made I them look upon ail Christians as rapa- 1 cious foreign devils. He cavs that tho Chinese are fighting for th< ir homes and institutions, and know that the Chri-tan natons Hie seeking to rob them, and that their missionaries are harked by guns and twords and Godless soldiers ready to kill and slay. 'I his infuriates them, and they look upon any white man as a devil who should he slain. He says that while this impending and destructive war is ordained of God and ( foretold by His prophets, yet the sin of it lifs at the doors of Christian tia- j tlon-. Offenses niu-t needs conic, but j woe unto those by whom they come. The love of money is still the root of all evil. "Trade will lollow the Hag ' is the shlbolcth of commerce, and if the flag has to ho stained with blood it does not matter." These are my convictions, and hence I can't work up any enthusiasm nor any revenge. In 1841 England took Hong Kong. In 18^8 England made China pay $20,000,000 because she destroyed 20,000 chests of opium that had been stored there by English merchants. In 18o8 Russia grabbed all the Amoor country, containing 000.000 square miles, and when the United States grabbed the Philippines the suspicious Chinaman said. "The Christians uro coining; they want more." No, it Is none of my war. The blood of it is on somebody's hands. 1 see that General Gordon is going up yonder on another mission of peace ?trying to mix up the blue and the gray and make a compromise color that will satisfy luifti Ki<Ir.y 11.. <lo it. but maybe he enjoys the fun of trying. Here and there you will find a good-hearted, clever federal pensioner. but most of the clever oiks conic down here and stay. The malig! nnnt ones don't come; they are afraid to come. That is all right; let them stay there; we had rathet live with the negroes than mean Yankees. Here is an Ohio paper (The Monroe Chronicle) that was sent me last week?a marked copy?that is mad because our people talk about building a Confederate memorial at Richmond, and say it ought not to be allowed, and that our loyalty to the union is all a pretense. and that Hill Arp. a noted rebel and writer, shows no love for a restored union, lie says that such a memorial is an insult to the nation ami makes treason honorable and loyalty odious; every Confederate monument is a bloody ?hirt. and the Republican party ought to die. and die eternally, if it ever allows the return of those rebel flags which arc an insult to the union dead and to our disabled vet era us. lie denounces our rebel songs and rebel tributes to treason; and there is a lot more of such stuff, and it is in keeping with (Ionoral Shaw's utterances in. Atlanta about what we shall teach our children. Old as I am. I can lick that fellow in three minutes by the clock, and as he has singled me out, it would do me good to maul some grace into his malignant soul. I am afraid we will have to whip them again. Hut 1 am not going to let every fool up there make me mad?I havtnt got time?I'd rather work in the garden or ploy with the grandchildren; they keep me amused, and 1 can love them without a strain. Last night 1 had to play Trlmbletop with them, and had to he the elephant and let them rule home on my back. How far away sounds?"Catches his liens and puts them in pens; some lays eggs and some lays none; wire, briar, lumber lock, three goeso in the llock," etc. One of these little girls, not yet four VPflU'R rilil flicithovi il Itnr ntnihac one terday and was promised a whipping. "Mary Lou. this is I lie second time you have opened the ice chest and turned over tlie cream. 1 told you that if you did it again I would whip you. Now come along in I lie other room." She is a good child, loving and smart, hut willful. "Mamma, peas don't vlp me hard." Her older sister, Carolina, had followed along out of sympathy. Mary Hon saw her and said, "Now, Talline, you go back; me don vant you to see mamma vip nie and hear nie quy. It's none of your pisness; it's just my pisness. You go hack. Talline." and she laid herself across her mother's lap ready for her bisiness. The mother eouhlent stand that: she relented and kissed lirr child, and the little thing promised again. And so it goes on in every loving family?promising and repenting? from childhood to old age. we .sin in haste and repent at leisure.

Waller presented the Rev. J. S. Jordan of Phoenix, who opened tho meeting with a most appropriate appeal to tho God of Rattles. Then came a very interesting* address of welcome on behalf of the town of Greenwood by Mayor RtiPre. who paid high tribute to tile soldiers of the Confederacy and extended the survivors a warm welcome on behalf of this thriving lit-; tie rity. Mr. David Aiken, commander of Camp .Tames M. Perrin, Sons of Veterans, welcomed the visitor? in tho name of h'-s organization and Senator Waller in behalf of Camp 1). Wyatt Aiken. U. C. v. Gen. C. Irvine Walker the state commander, then responded for tho veterans in one of the happiest speeches he lias ever made on any occasion. After these preliminary exerelsra there was read the annual memorial tribute to the comrades who have died since the last reunion and to the women r.f the Confederacy. CHKFUS FOR HAMPTON. A telegram was read from Wade Hampton, expve-slng liis regret, at being unable to come. The mention of the in.:ne of Hampton set the old soldiers wild and they cheered to tho echo. On motion, it was ordered that a response be sent to Gen I lampion telling him that lie still occupies tlio tlrst place in the hearts of his roniradrs. A letter was read from Cnpi. George Lake, now living in Louisville, exprcsting his regrets and a suitable rej spon-o was ordered sent to Capt. Lake j who is a prime favorite wii . his comi rades. Next eame the roll call of ramps, a duty performed by Col. Jus. G. Holmes, division adjutant, in his usual graceful style. ' Dir. D. 11.

On motion of Col. Iredell Jones, a committee of three was ordered appointed to memorialize the legislature for the oreation of the office of commles-iioner of pensions.

TUB SONS OF VETERANS. At 4 o'clock In the afternoon theconvention of Sons of Veterans met in the court house, where a large crowd of ladies ar.i.l veterans had gathered with the Sons. The commander of the local camp?Camp James M. Perrin?Mr. | David Aiken, called the assembly to order, and after prayer by Rev. R. (?. McLecs Mr. Aiken introduced Mr. F. B. fl-rier of Camp Perrin. who extended a welcome on behalf of liis camp. Mr. Grler's speech was eloquent ;uid patriotic, and he was frequently interrupted by apjileu.-e. He Iniulrd >><. i era to soldi* r and his drods and aroused the einotions of his h< arers tTfa pitch. At the conclusion of Mr. Grier's speech Mr. Aik*.n introduced Mr, i rancis II. Weston, division conmiiincler of the Sons of V* terans for South Carolina, who responded very gracefully to the words of welcome and went 011 to make an earnest, sol /, argument for the truthful perpetuation of history. At the conclusion of Mr. Western's <-poech Gen. M. L. Hen ham was called for and responded in one of his happy little talks, full of fervent patriotism. There were then calls or Mr. Geo. E. Prince, who respondrd very neatly, touching upon the matter of partisan histories, which is the question most prominentfy before both the veterans and the Sons. At night the sponsors were presented to the veterans at tl?A rnn-t ? ? ~ . . ..... uwi rtj, 11113 Sons acting as escort. It Is estimated that there were at I least 8,000 or 10.000 vl?ltcrs 'In town Wednesday, he ;idcs nian,y from the surrounding country. Over 1,000 veterans w? re registerc 1, Jind It s therefore likely that there were more than 1,200 here. There are the same number of Sons. though not all are connected with the organization. The number of oponsorj wan estimated nt front 800 to 500, the flow* r of South Carolina womanhood. THE PENSION REPORT. Tho report of the committer on I ' 1 I I stons, pros* nte<l by Col.

At that meeting a quo; urn was present and after full t ( sick-rat ion and discussion the ( following g' tural features were re-i 1 commc ndrd t?> he ineorporated into tli? i pension laws of the State, viz: 1.

G. That all laws on the subject of pensions shall be comprehended and i embraced in one act. for the bettor understanding and enforcement of the laws. The above, in general, were the changes which your committee recom mended to he made, and we are plen.sed to ri port that all the sugg< ? ; | ttons above set forth have been I adopt* d in the law passed at the recent session of the general assembly. ( Your committee diet not deem it propei * to invade the prerogatives of the gen; oral assembly by entering too minutely or extensively into the matter of ; suggesting a law.

The bill | which your committee introduced, which practically has now horn incorporated Into the laws of the State, may not be perfect, but in the judgment of your committee a fair trial will show an improvement on the old laws on the subject of pensions, and will prove j more favorable to our needy comradis. from being more impartial In its administration and more exacting j in its duties.

What the Weed Has Done for One Section of the State. Mr. N. L. Willet writes as follows to the Augusta Chronicle: I was anxious to look into that portion of South Carolina that has in the pust several years gone into tobacco growing atul has thereby prospered bo greatly. I was glad therefore to stop a day at Darlington, S. (J., with my frleuds, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Hewitt, who own one of the flne-t homes in this tlirivinir hiwn <<f t "inn i \ ling ton sells now 3.000.000 pounds of tobac~:c leaf, Tinimonsville over 4,000.000 pouiul> and Florence equally as much. This leaf s'lis for from 0 to 7 cents per pound to 28 and 40 cents. This difference in price obtaining principally from differences in soil and curing of leaf. The proporti n is this: Ten (10) acres in lobar o is the equivalent of 100 acro3 in cotton returning say $30 an acre and the tobacco $">0 to $150. The tobacco industry ha; brought a large number of tohaccn raisers into this county; and land that live years ago was of only nominal value today brings ready s.le at greatly enhanced values. Mr. Hewitt told me of one man who, for example, had bom cotlon farming for sixteen years and was bankrupt who in four years had under tobacco raising now owned the place having paid out nearly $7,00'i. These people have found, too. that the best, tobacco lands aie the light, worn-out cotton lands. The season for t' bv co growfh Is much bss than cotton. Tobacco planted. say in April, is already coming (o market. July and August, in place of being dead months, are live business months in Darlington. Fiotu July to December are tobacco market months. The care of the tobacco plant is a matter of t;."? to 7-. days. Now compare this time with tli-? s'x or seven months To grow tobnc?o at a profit require* more brain than to grow < itton. It requires, too, experience. It requires, too. a certain outfit, that ?osts some money to ihe grower. Then enough must he grown in a county to warrant I lie putting up of warehouses costing each about $5,000?in the nearby town. The drying houses to !? > put up on ti c plantation are of logs and mud. The town warehouse is a wooden long onestory affair with big windows in the roof. The acreage of tobacco is so small? 10 to 100 of cotton?that the c.itton acreage of a county need not he largely decreased because of tobacco growing. Tobacco might bo largely the surplus crop. The railroads running o .t of Darlington have about as much cotton as ever and yet now added to till- have 5.000,000 pounds of tobacco leaf. I b lievo it would ha a good l?le i for the various railroads out of Augusta to 'ook into till* tobae o busine s. The ipcning of this new culture in a new tounty must come. I feel, largely Mi rough the railroads. Primary soil j.\ i ?-1 i mem -> must iip mane, a low intnceo culturists imported. farmers' cooperation secured, etc. The railroads can do this; and if tlie experiment sucf. nils they will he repaid U'O fold. Tho Atlantic Coast Dine a few years ago nl audoned the u e of wood on its engines between Wilniingt ?n and Wilson. N. O.. and substituted coal. To keep '.hese poor piney woods choppers from itarvntion almost the railroads look?d up strawberry culture far thrm. Tiie i and inaugurated the business successfully. The poor wood selle s are today far better off than ever and the road hauled this past season 000 cars of strawberries (a new species of freight tj them) out of the territory. The advent of tobacco in and al>out Darlington lias raised the county. I might say, almost out of poverty into affluence. All lilies of business are good. After I oking over the town fill I of $8,000 and $10,000 residences and all well kept I .'aid to Friend Hewitt (hat I did not believe there was a poor man in the town. 11" told me that iu one day he had count* d 100 country wagons in town. The advent of tobac o in the county had done for the wealth of the county just what the artesian wells have done for its health. Tills used to he a very unhealthy district. Chills and fever cmo with each s immer ami fall. The artesian well has banished this. Darlington has nine or ten wells?all overflowing wells. Their depth is about. 32.r? feet. The water is quite void and has just enough of sulphur and magnt sia in it to he of constant medicinal help to all low rountry dwellers. The town has a good water system from one of the wells. The last well bored by the town only ro t $100? an amount that many an up-country well costs. Those* of us who 'tvo outside o," the artesian well district know nothing comparatively of the value of these vells to town and county. Darlington is famous for her live oaks, known as "Darlington Oaks." They are found only In and about the town and are different in type from the roast live oak. They .are ns large t.s our lower Hroad street oaks, hut are more spreading I am familiar with coast live oak forest? but Darlington surpasses them all. The tree is an fverpreen and this tree Is a thing of beauty all the year. Darlington is distant from the cca^t about the same numbrr of mile- as is Augusta and has the rame latitude. I em convinced that Augusta eould add thes-* oaks ff she would try to her tree system. 1 have arranged it so that the city or any of her citizens onn get this next fall a supply of these Darlington <>akB for experimental planting?If they so wish It.
