Miraculous Cures for Various Ailments. In Prance, particularly, superstitioi dies hard, and there is probably ni other country where the people stil retain so many ancient and quaint be liefs in connection with Christmai day. Several of these relate t< miraculous cures of all the ills whicl flesh is heir to. For instance, th< chilly proceeding of bathing on Christ mas day is supposed to insure on< against both fever and toothache dui ing the coming year^ another preven tive of fever being the abstention fron all meat on December 25th, a grea sacrifice for the average man; whil< a remedy for ulcers could be obtaine< Dy those who refrained from eatini prunes on that day. A cure for everything, however, cai be found in the large loaf chiefly mad< in Provence, and called "Le pain d< calende." It is very large and ver; white, and from it is cut a small piece marked with a knife with three o four crosses. This is carefully pre served as a remedy, and used whei required, the remainder of the loa being divided among the family on th< Feast of Epiphany. With regard to bread, it is believer that loaves baked pn Christmas evi remain fresh for ten years, and durinj the whole of the holidays a portion o bredd was left out on the table nigh and day because the Madonna migh come in to share it. But unless sh< wishes to bring misfortune on the en tire family, it behooves the Frencl housewife not to bake any bread be tween December 25th and the Festiva of Circumcision. Cattle can be kept in good healtl . by giving them something to drinl immediately after midnight mass 01 Christmas eve before entering tin house. And a good harvest could b< insured if the corn about to be sowi is carried to its destination in th< cloth used for the Christmas dinner.

Lexington, Deo. 13.?Pat Love was ! shot and instantly killed by Scott i Hutto about 9 o'clock Saturday night near Pelion, 16 miles from tlie county seat. Hutto used a double barrel j shotgun, emptying both charges into i the body of Love. The coroner s jury, after the ini quest, rendered a verdict to the ef1 feet that Love had come to his death I at the hands of Hutto and that Hutto i V i was justified in taking Love's life. ' The coroner commented on the finding as a most unusual verdict. The tragedy occurred at a negro house 011 the plantation of Hutto . . jg ; within 300 yards of his own dwellJ ing. Love had been making his home j on the plantation during the recent m few months. Three negroes, residents of the house where the white man lived, were eye witnesses to the. tragedy. R is stated that Hutto purchased the shells with which he killed Love in the town of Pelion on Saturday, but he himself had no gun. He went to the home of the negroes Saturday night, according to their story, and told them that somebody had been shooting into or around his residence v:; and asked for the gun. After the 2? gun had been handed him and just as Hutto was about to make his way out the- door and back to his own home, Love* it is said, appeared on the bcene. One of the witnesses tes- -.--'Jp tified that Love told Hutto, "I've got you where I want you now," or words ?9 to that effect, whereupon Hutto rais- -Jl ed his gun and fired. Love was un i armed, it was stated, and a search of ^ his person revealed the fact that the r:J| ' dead man did not have a weapon . p I about his body when the coroner af- r';p * rived. . v; After the shooting Hutto returned |j| . to his own home where he spent the ^ night. Sunday morning he went to * > Pelion and called for Sheriff Miller to come after him, apprising the sher- ]^ I iff of his act. : Love came to this county from ^ Georgia about 15 years ago. He was. ^3 j about 35 or 40 years of age, and so j far as is known he has no relatives. ||?3| 1 in this section, ms Doay was ounsu vV^Bj i- at the expense of the county. i Hutto has a wife and several chil-< ) dren. The coroner's jury returned a . > 1 verdict to the effect that Love came .-3 3 to his death by .gunshot wounds in /.'-J the hands of Scott Hutto and that the 3 defendant was justified in taking his life, a most unusual verdict. 1 Hutto is now confined in the couh- ' t ty jail. He has employed counsel and^ b bail will be sought as soon as the pa- 73| i pers can be perfected. .
