from the encampment nt Philadelphia, and
dispersed quietly to their homes. No brass

the Company ngrclng to take the entire crop
(provided it does not exceed 1,000 bushels)
at $10. per bushel.
Although the words fit pretty well to the
tune of "Ibhcmian Oats," It was decided to

The question, "Is Buckwheat Culture Prof

Our tillage was thrown into an excitement
Tiidny afternoon hut by a man running into
(-'quire Bradford's store just out ol breath, ex
claiming: "I want a warrant for a man
what's run olT with my wife." The Squire
sent one ot his boys with the man and told
him to show this man Constable Way, aud If
he found the runaway he could then procure
a warrant. Tho constable was soon found
nnd they look themselves lo the north
end of town, where tho truant wife
was lunching with her newly
found Lord, a married man from Clifton, O.
Crackers and bulogna devoured, Constable
Way marched the whole crew to the City
Hall, where it was found that the womao,
Olie Brierly, was an o'd South Charleston
lad), Oliet-'chlndledecker, daughter of Daniel
Sclnndlede-kcr, who, when less than lfi tears
of age married Lou B-ierly, of Clifton. It
appears Unit Olie was without shoes and, Let
Ing a dutiful wife, asked Mr. Brierly to buy
her a pair of shoes. But it being warm, he
thought she could do tor awhile with the pair
Nitiire gme her. There happened
to bo near by one, James Tilman,
who hud be n winning the fair Olio's atlec
tloTi, and now sho concluded she would strike
for higher wages Tilman and Ollle struck
out sometime Thursday, lying in the woods
that night and arming here about three
o'clock p m. Friday, Olie still barefooted.
Brierly obtained the services of one Lou
Dudley, a colored mini with a lot of blood
hounds. Dudley started bis dogs. The dogs
came up with them here ns stated about tbreo
o'clock p. m. Friday.
Constable Wsy locked up "Tilman" and
the fair Olie finally concluded she would re
turn with her husband on a compromise that
she was lo have a new pair ot shoes. After
the had got out of town the constable let the
other man out. He made tracks for Clifton
lively. But Buch is life.
Our camp meeting bad a big day Sunday;

The creditors have a deep fesjllng of re
Ft'iitmeut at tho treatment they have re
ceived. They say they have had two settle
ments with the Mate In each of which they
greatly nsluced their just claims and the
only return they have received Is the utter

bestowed upon pickiHiekcK Mr. Itoyall
believes that If the fatal policy that has
been adhered to, of war Uon tho bond
holders, were changed Into a pacific policy
of conciliation nnd friendly negotiation,
that some adjustment could be arrived at,
but so long as the authorities of the State
maintain their present attitude of defiance
and pillage, the Mate will get deeper and

The State creditors are determined to test
to Its final conclusion the question whether

to sustaining themselves. "It makes a Vir

Itoyall, "to see how this State Is thought ol
