Shrock, Oct. 31, 1S95.
Mrs. M. D. McAtee and inter esting little son, Levi, are spend ing the week in Memphis. Mr. R. L. Tittle made a quick trip to Durant last Saturday. Mr. S. R. Whitten, of Burgess, traveling agent for B. N. I., was in our midst last week. Mrs. Mary Burell, of Sallis vi cinity and Mrs. Maggie Weaver, of Newport, spent the past few days at the bedside of their sister, Mrs. Jenkins. Mrs. Julia Spain, Miss Frankie Holley and Mr. Will Hannaare on the sick list. We hope they may soon enjoy perfect health. Mr. Ed Donald and family of Sallis vicinity, visited his parents on Sunday last. Two little strangers arrived in our midst recently; one at the home of Mr. R. N. Ouslev, and one at the home of Mr. John Hearst. May the little misses stay be long and pleasant. Messrs. Sam Burell and John Caldwell, of Beulah, visited rela tives the past week. Mr. Sink Donald visited his cousin, Mr. Lige Parker, of Spring Grove vicinity Sunday. On Sunday, Oct. 20th, the sad messenger, Death, entered the home of Mr. Tobe Jenkins, and bore away from this world of sin his wife, Mrs. Georgia Ann Jenk ins. Thus a husband and ten children are left unconsolable at this sad dispensation of Divine Providence, for never perhaps was a wife and mother more faithful and loving than she. May God who "tempers the winds to the shorn lambs," carry consolation where it is so sadly needed. Meet her up yonder loved ones where in the light of a perfect day, in the presence of our dear Savior, we may all live and sorrow no more. Mr. J E. Stingley, of Sallis, vis ited friends in our midst on Sun day last. Miss Lizzie Pervine, of Camden, is spending the week with her un cle, Capt. J. K. Shrock and other relatives. The Messrs. Barnett, of Leake, visited their brother, Dr. B. J. Barnett Sunday. Farmers are about through pick ing cotton and are now busily en gaged in gathering corn, making preparations for molasses making, and a general winding up of this year's crop. Pansy and Yioixt. Story oi'u Thrifty Trader i'roiii the Xew York .Sum. Frenchmen in the Western 'L1!! are teilir.'' the storv of a 1 Sou ative trailer to ;5b;w th;it thrift, industry and business tau nt pav a lanrc prof even in tropica Africa. T sole capital 01 tins meritorious tra der was one slave of punny frame and unattractive visage who' when put up for sale in liammako, on the upper Niger, went begging until his master accepted the miserable price of four small bars of salt for him. Of course, the secret of profit able trade is to take your commod ites when they are wanted. It oc curred to this trader that the peo ple of Bure, a hundred miles fur ther up the Niger, were fond of salt and had very little of it. So in Bure he exchanged his salt for a couple of handfuls of gold dust, and then he struck a bee line for Sierra Leone, 200 miles away, where he exchanged his dust for seven flintlocks and four barrels of gunpowder. Far away in the interior U the preat Chief San orVi when! the French, according tu their hoWS- papers, nave compireu aooiu once a year for the past sevi-n years. He comes up smiling and shows plenty of fight whenever the French sally out to conquer him again. Hut he needs all the guns and powder he can get to kill the Frenchmen with, and so here was a f;ood market for the trader's F.ngiish flintlocks and powder. Samory was glad to see the goods and willingly gave eight ctfiritiinrr drives for thrill. 1 ii i The' world was7 smiling upon the industrious trader of the Niger. Being a generous soul, he gave his elder, brother three of the slaves and set three others to work on his plantation raising food for his family while he was away stimulat ing commerce in the Soudan. After seeing his crops put in he set out with the two remaining slaves to try his luck again. Selling in a high market and buying in a cheap one, he turned his slaves into gold dust and ivory, which the obliging Eng lishmen took off his hands for ten flintlocks, six barrels of powder and nine pieces of cotton cloth. In due time the munitions reached Samory and were absorbed in the ceneral scheme of preventing the French from too rapidly widening borders in inner Africa. The pro ceeds were seventeen sfaves, all of whom were transmuted by the alchemy of trade into more flint locks and powder. At the end of three years the trader has retired from commercial pursuits, a welthy man. His lowly hut in the upper Niger has become an expansive palace of sundried clay, full of gaudy-colored chintzes and other evidences of European luxury. Around him is a village tenanted by his scores of slaves, who minister to his every want. He puffs his pipe in luxurious ease. for he has been successful in life and has played a part in the affairs of the world. He has swelled the total of the British commerce and, with the aid of his English friends, he has helped to keep the census of Frenchmen in Africa within reasonable limits.

We doubt if any light, net yet visible on that subject, can be contributed by Gen. Long street's book. The Century Maga zine may be said to have exhausted that problem. The very best article from the Northern side was con tributed by Gen. Newton, the fa mous engineer. He demonstrated that Lee lost the battle by not seiz ing the heights that commanded the whole position. Now, whose direct fault was it that these heights were not occupied? It is certain that Gen. Lee ordered the occupa tion of Gettysburg, which, in a military sense, meant those very heights. E well's corps was depend ed upon, as we understand, to do that very thing, but halted just this side of attainment. The sup reme moment was allowed to pass. Gen. Gorden may tell what he knows on that subject now that Gen. Longstreet has published a book attempting measurably to de fame Gen. Lee. -Augusta Chron icle MMK AND HHICK.
