As the time was drawing near when we had to make onr departure, we concluded before leaving, to invest one-half of onr money (which was only a ten cent piece) for tobacco, and when we offered onr coin to the merohant, he beoame 'tnraged, and his innocent and bland liko disposition was transformed into a diabolical nature. He leaped from behind the counter, and like the tragedian, who becomes enthusiasts in the char acter he1 represents, paced the floor, tore his hair, wincg his hands, stamped his feet, and with dne hideous yell, seized ns by tho collar and threw ns into a meal box, and then went ont and looked tho door. ; What had we done that we should 'be treated in such a manner? A few moments before tho knight of the conntcr was as mild and ns pleasant as a May. morn. Ho was cracking his jokes, narrating his exploits up and down the rivers of Sonth-West Georgia, and telling ns how many hundred rails he used to rplit when a small boy before breakfast, the number of miles he could walk in ten minutes, etc But, alas ! there was a sad, sad change .' He was changed from sunshine into a thunderstorm. A change came ovtr us also. We were turned from a conceited hero to an humble poodle dog. Instead of feeling bold and lion like, we felt like a murderer, who was trjing to escape from the hands of jus tico. . We trembled, and onr hair "stood on end like the quills npon the fretfnl porcupine." At InRt the merchant re turned wilh a body of armed men, followed by woman, children and dogs Wo were tuken from the store out into tb street, where a procession was formed tho writer and tho enrnged merchant taking Ihn lead, followed by the arnioj body of men, the different reli cuius denominations and stcrt lations, the most prominent of tha latter being the ku klux. The command was given, and the assembled mass began to move. We marched abont two miles, and halted at a beautiful grove, where wo witnessed onr would be fate the gallows, which waa laslefully decorated with gopher shells and wild-oat hides. The banjo,' fiddle and dulcimer were sending forth their melodious strains to tho hoavens. Nations were sailing in mid-air, banners were floating, and the average small boy was firing his toy pinto!. This was a gala day for tho citizens of Colquitt, but, a sad one for the writer. Tho hour of ex ecution arrived, and wo thonght our time had come when mortal man must render up his earthly garb for that of a flpiritnal robo. We were placed on the. gallows, the rope adjusted aronnd our neck, and wben tho black cap the cap that slintft off Ihe light from this world was applied to our face, the band that is the banjo, fiddle and dulieiiuer struck npthe tune of "The Young man on the l'lyiug Trapeze." While the executioner w s in the aot of cutting the fatal rope, the earth began to shake; tho wind commenced to lini until a terribln cnln nama nn, tn. rents of rain began to fall: the trees wore torn from their roots, and were flying in every direction ; the assem bled crowd becamo excited, and dispersed from the grove the place where a con ceited hero was to be executed for inno cently attempting to pass an illegal currency. We were loft alone on the platform of death to encounter the raging storm, expecting every moment to be convcyod lo "that bourn from whence no traveler returns." After tho storm was over, a kind hearted man with blue eye-glasses came to our rescue, and released us from the jaws of death, and we went on our way rejoicing. THY A ttOTTLH OP Cherokee Cough Cure.

We thought we had a good machine in our household until one day the agent of the New Home presented himaelf at onr door and proceeded to doliver an oration upon its enaraeteriatle merits. "Bat," we snsweted, 'our machine xerves us nicely and units na well, and we do not care lor another." " ; The agent, however, was persistent, and finally begged the privilege of leav ing one of his machines with ns, "for the ladies to try." The request was not unraaKouaMo, so we granted it -but more to oblige the agent than any thins? else; for wo really did not want tho machine, and had not lift TAtVkfttAAi tltu tit hnirlm. t The machine ones hi the bonne, it was naturil that the ladies should look It over. They did so, and aa a oonseauence fell In love with it. They say that without the slightest wish to decry or disparge any oiuer niacnine, this, alt things consid ered, is, in their opinon, the most de siraue one to be bad. , The upshot of the whole matter was that tne old machine ww disposed of. and the Light Running New Home in stalled into onr householda very fair and satisfactory arrangement being made wttn me agent. It is pronounced a genuine beauty and a real comfort, aud our folks wanted us to tell other folks alont it.
