GENTLEMAN OF THE OLD SCHOOL An Interesting Biographical Sketch of Major B., an Antehellnm Gentleman of Old Barnwell District. Ulmer, November 18.?Mention was made in a previous communication of a noted character, Major B., of Old Barnwell District. It is strange, passing strange, that more is not recorded of these old landmarks and pioneers of the ante-bellum days. Without going into a biographical sketch of the late Major, only a few paragraphs will be irdited here for the readers of your valuable journal. He was of stalwart form, expressive facial lineaments and commanded the respect of all wherever he appeared. In his domicile he was hospitable to the core, and with a noble Southern wife and a large family of sons and daughters, that home was the Mecca of many pleasure-seeking visitors. He was a great admirer of the beautiful in womankind, a stickler for true principles in his fellowmeu, doted on pets in fur andj feathers, and loved symmetry and get-up in horse-flesh. He, together with the late ex-Governor Hagqod and others, instituted the far famed Sherwood Jockey Club, at Barn-! well Court House, before the war. Here the notable race-horsemen of Augusta, Greenville, Fairfield, Columbia, Orange- j burg, Sumter, Darlington, and Charleston, were wont to meet annually about Christmas-tide and spend a few days of J gaiety and pleasure?many ladies attend- J ing the races in the day and enjoying the terpsichorean amusements at night. The Major always owned one of the swiftest racers, as many silver cups and gold-lined goblets attested on his dining-room mahogany side-table. Though he possessed and had seen many fine specimens of horses, he had never met his beau ideal, and he determined to visit the famous Blue Grass region of Kentucky. So in one year of the fifties, he with his brotherin-law, Bob H., took steamer at Charleston for New York, stopping'in the great metropolis long enough to "take in" the sights, its "sunshine and shadows". They saw women here, on the boulevards, in "abbreviated clothes and spangled hose," such as they had never seen in the Southland, and spoke of it more than once on their return home, saying that the Southern ladies were more reserved and common-sensible than the Gothemites. Leaving New York, in two or three days more they were treading the "dark and bloody ground" of "old Kaintuck." They visited many studs, and stock farms, and the Major saw so many "beau ideals" that he with his companion purchased a fine drove, among which it was said were some of the prettiest mules and horses ever brought to lower Carolina. The Major was a great admirer of Andrew Jacfcson, ine "nero 01 i>ew Orleans," and he longed to visit "The Hermitage," a few miles from Nashville, Tenn., and for years the residence of the great chieftain, though they would necessarily make a considerable detour in doing so. Here they again feasted their eyes on broad clover and Bermuda pastures and sleek stock, swine, kine and equine; waving lawns, stately trees, trellissed summer-houses, huge out-barns and granaries, and, above them all, stood the lordly mansion, into which the genial host and manager (name now forgotten) escorted the newcomers from attic to wine-cellar, passing on the way the little ante-room to the library, containing the cabinet for tempting liquors (did they stop here?) and then entered the spacious double-parlor, and were soon engaged in a slap-dash confabulation and reminiscences of "Old Hickory." After sojourning here for a few days they quitted the historic old manse and set out with their well-rested stock for the journey% home, meeting with some pleasing incidents but no accidents en route. Major B. had a hail frierd and admirer in Barnwell, who presented him with an orange walking stick, cut from his large plantation in Louisiana which was mounted with a gold head, costing $40. This highly prized cane he was compelled to use on an advancing adversary several vears afterwards and it was fractured, but the pieces were repaired and wellkept until his demise. It is now in possession of one of his daughters?the wife of one of your former townsmen?and she is sacredly preserving it as a family heir-loom. If memory serves well, the head bears this inscription: "From J. D. A. to Major W. R. B., December, 185-." S. 0. Jourxer. CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY IS PLEASANT TO TAKE. The finest quality of granulated loaf sugar is used in tjie manufacture of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, and the roots used in its preparation give it a flavor similar to maple syrup, making it quite pleasant to take. W. L. Roderick, Poolesville, Md., speaking of this remedy, says: "I have used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy with my children several years and can truthfully say it is the best preparation of the kind I know of. The children like it and it has no injurious after effect." For sale by Bamberg Pharmacy, Bamberg; H. C. Rice, Denmark. Bingo: "I'm going to bring my wife round to call'on you tonight." Winterby: "That's right. But do me a favor, old man. Don't let her wear her new cloak. I don't w&nt my wife to see it just now.". Bingo (grimly) "Why that's what we are coming for." CURED CONSUMPTION. Mrs.B. W.Evans, Clear water,Kan., writes: "My husband lay sick for three months. The doctors said he had quick consumption. We procured a bottle of Ballard's Horehouna Syrup, and it cured him. That was six years ago. Since then we have always kept a bottle in the house. We cannot do without it. For coughs and colds it has no equal." 25c, 50c, $1.00. I Sold by Dr. H. F, Hoover, Bamberg, S. C. < BATHING AT OSTEND. The Contrast Between Belgian and American Bench Cnatoms. How differently from ourselves Europeans do some things is shown by the marked contrast between the bathing customs and methods at the typical American beach and those at a leading seaside resort abroad, such, for instance. at Ostend. Belgium. The American way is too familiar to our readers to need description. At Ostend bathing. which is the most striking thing about the city, is carried on in accordance with continental ideas of propriety most shocking to the average American. Instead of the ordinary dressing rooms, Ostend was the first place to use the little individual bouses on wheels, into which the intending bather goes to disrobe and don his or her bathing suit The house is then wheeled out in the water by a horse driven by a man employed for that purpose. The steps are let down from the little house, and the bather enters the water without having to promenade over the sand. At the end of the bath the bather mounts the steps into his little house and. calling the driver again, has his dressing room hauled up high and dry on the shore, where, having dressed at his leisure, he leaves the key with an attendant and goes on his way. The bathing costumes seen at Ostend are noted for their scantiness, the striking peculiarity of which, however, lies in the fact that the suits worn by the women rarely, if ever, have any skirts attached to them, everybody?men, women and children alike?wearing tight fitting suits, the suits furnished by most of the public bath bouses being identically the same for both men and women. The scene on the beach is one of great animation, and when the bathers no thoT fpwinontlr fin in fl **? -W, ? game resembling basket ball, played with a large inflated rubber ball, the mingling of varicolored bathing suits and the darting hither and thither of the bathers at play, now on the beach and again in the water, is a sight never to be forgotten.?Leslie's Weekly. ENGINE TRANCE. A lert of Temporary Paralysis That Sometimes Affects Track Men. "The numerous fatal accidents reported in. the newspapers to rail layers that occur every year on the various railroad systems throughout the country are not in every case due, as is generally supposed by the public, to negligence or carelessness on the part of the workers themselves," said a New York physician and surgeon employed by the New York Central railroad. "The fact is, the bearing of these men in time becomes affected owing ! to the constant stooping position which they are -obliged to assume in laying the rails, putting the bolts in, etc., and that renders them often oblivious to approaching trains, notwithstanding the fact that they work in gangs and have lookout men near at hand. Another fact which is accountable in many Instances for fatal accidents to rail layers is what is known among the men themselves as 'engine trance.' This 1 might describe more clearly as a temporary sort of paralysis which affects simultaneously both the mind and body. The 'stroke* lasts only a few seconds, but those few seconds mean life or death when a fast train is approaching. "A rail layer who may be in perfect physical condition is Dot proof against the powerful fascination as he gazes along the rails and sees an engine with its row of cars coming toward him at express speed. Although he has been warned by the lookout and the 6houts of his fellows of the approaching danger, be will pay no heed, but fanri enollhrmnd fnr nn imrtant. And that instant*b delay is generally fatal, or; if not, it results in the amputation of a leg. "There are few rail layers who have not they will tell you, experienced this peculiar trance at one time or another during their careers on the track. Animals are also subject to 'engine trance,' particularly dogs and cats, and that no doubt accounts to some extent for the large number of them as well as other animals that are killed on the railroad." ?New York Times. Home Influence. It was during the reading lesson in one of our public schools that a little lad read in a jerky, expressionless way, "Mamma, see the hawk." The reading was so very poor that the teacher said, "John, you know you would not talk that way to your mother." "No'm," replied the lad. "Well, now," said the teacher in a kindly way, "you read it exactly as you would say it to your mother." And here is his reply: "Look, mom, at that there hawk!"?Philadelphia Ledger. Sailors Are Fond of Sweet Thinfi. Railnrs are very fond of sweet things. and to one who knows little about them It is surprising to learn the quantity of candy they consume.

On large ships several thousand pounds of candy are frequently consumed on a cruise.?Gunton's Magazine. Quite Up to Date. Day?I find there is a $2,500 mortgage on the property you sold me.
