Snakes aro Exc?feing Things.
Some years ago when ] set out in life,
alter marriage, I and wife had raised
two children nearly grown-a son and a
daughter-and thc daughter at times
would have her young Indy associates to
visit her. On one occasion two nice
young ladies came to spend the day, and
at the usual hour dinner was announ
ced and all was ready in a lew minutes,
for wc love to cat at our house, and wc
delayed no time in gatling to thc table.
The writer as usual asked a blessing
after all was seated alon nd thc table,
ami alter raising bis lace erect and treat
ing tlic young ladies with all thc polite
ness that he was possessetl with by
waiting on them at thc table, J soon dis
covered our old brindle cat coining to
wards thc dining table with a large
black snake hanging lober mouth, and
thc writer remarked something about
thc old cat having the snake, and no
sooner than mentioned, thc cat sprang
into the door with thc snake and ran
under the table. I tell you th jrc wis a
moving tiiiic in old Joel's kitchen Iront
thc table ; no one hungry just at thc
spur of that moment. Chairs sprang
backwards and two ol thc number fell
over, and such rolling to get further.
Thc same old cat plays up such pranks
until now one happened a lew days ago
on the same principle too good to give
thc public, ibu thc writer will give an
incident ot years ago when I was plow.
iiig, I am scared ol snakes too as other
people arc, and I had a slow horse to
plow, so I bought a long black whip to
make time. All was going well with
mc for two or three days, but finally I
became careless about the whip drag
ging tiber mc in the furrow behind thc'
plow. Time rolled on and was making
headway, and in driving out at the end
of the row where thc wcodp was thick, 1
was sorter jubiis ot snjikes, but stepped
out into thc corner ol j the fence jam to
turn and start back,, in so doing thc
long black whip got tangled around my
feet and legs for I was barefoot ; as soon
as thc lash began to t'ghtcn Mound my
feet in turning the writer begun to light
en too, ami ail thc kicking teet against a
plow I done it, and alter discovering my
mistake I had to sit on my plow and
rub my right foot perhaps a half of an
hou?-. So there was no time gained by
plowing with a whip lo make time,
therclorc the writer would advise all
plowman to ljt thc black whip alone
when plowing. d***

Gibson Station Splinters* '
The interest manifested in tho pro
tracted meetings in this section has
eclipsed everything else. Dr. J. W.
North has just closed a very interest
ing meeting at Saint John's. Several
accessions' to the church with some
18 or 20 conversions. Everybody
has ?)?6n going to meeting, while and
black, young and old; whooping
cough, sore eyes, &c, has boen scat
tered. Kev. G. G. Musgrave, colored
pastor ol' the Green Lake Circuit,
closed his protracted meeting at tho
station last Sunday week, and thc
past week ho has conducted a meeting
ut Goodwin's Chanel, Mr. Editor I
wish to say something about the Boy-1
kin meeting. I am not a preacher,
neither ant 1 ti fanatic on the subject j
of religion, but if any man can pp
tend, a meeting like tho ono j list!
closed at Boylon without being moved
hard ind?cil is that man's heart. As
I roported last week, this meeting |
commenced ono week ago. Ixe vs. J.
C. Stoll, 10. S. B. Ford, NV. K.
Breeden, N. Li, Swelt,-Berry, A.
H. Adams and Fletcher Stubbs, all |
have labored faithfully in their Min
ter's cause, iront the very beginning!
tho holy spirit seemed to move upon
I the hearts ot' the people, Bov. Mr.
j Swelt preached three serinons, which
had a telling effect; this man of God
is doing a grand work in Marlboro I
County. Bov. Mr. Berry preached]
two sermons/ I heard only ono text,
.'Broken Vows,'' which stirred our
people and caused a personal exami
nation. Kev. J. G. Stell, preacher in
charge, seemed lo be happy all the
week, preached as I never hoard him
preach before Iiis sermons on "Hell
and Heaven" were profoundly good,
searching; penetrating ami covering |
the entire ground. Iiis sermon yes
terday morning on Heaven was deci
dedly tho best that I ever heard him
deliver. Kev. Mr. Ford, the junior
preacher, while suffering from
throat affection, has thrown li i ni self
fully into the. work, and his sermons
and simpluhty' 1 he entire member
ship of tho church was thoroughly
aroused to a sense qf their duly, they
went lo work, pleading willi peni-'
tents anil admonishing sinners io |
abandon their evil ways and flee to
.Jcsu.s, and never since tho days of ll.
II. Durant have tho Boykin people,
and the entire surrounding country
enjoyed so powerful revival ol' reli
gion. Between 40 and 00 souls were1
converted and nearly if not quite as |
many connected themselves with tho!
church. It was indeed a pity to close1
the meeting, but owing to "fodder1
pulling" and previous arrangements
by the pastor, it was deemed advisa*
ble lo move thc meeting to Bethel.

who dived in Brightsvillc, (lied last
Friday- He was between 70 and 80
years oki.
The candidates iii Marlboro are
thick vc i'j i thick. Some of them have
been in Marion County and even in
North Carolina electioneering. Be
careful hoy*, try to keep inside of the
county. One thing I notice with
pleasure, the absence of electioneering \
at the protracted meetings.
Yesterday just after tho services at j
Boykin, Mr. Wm. ('lark was married
to Miss Coningham, Esquire D. D.
Stubbs officiating. The 'Squirt) heard
that the old woman would object ami
kick up a racket. This report caused
the worthy Judge's helves to become
a little shaky, but tho old lady did
not make her appearance and every
thing passed oil pleasantly and quiet
Crops were never bolter flinn nt
present in tho Boykin .section, water
melons and fruits are plentiful and
tho candidates will have a good time
th that section. 1 have not been at
Tat ii ins for ono week, therefore have
no splinters from that prosperous sec?

Very considerable interest has been
excited in foreign and medical circles
by Mi Brondel's successful treatment
ol'diphtheria hy the uso of benzoato of
sodium. He asserts that of 200 con
secutive cases he has not lost a singlo
one anti, though admitting tho possi
bility of a mistaken diagnosis in sorno
instances, yet, even excluding 50 per
cent on this account, there remain 100
eases without a death?. His method
is to have tho patient take, every
hour, a tablespoonful of a solution of
benzoato of sodium, fifteen grains to
the ?unce? and at tho samo limo one
sixth of a grain of sulphido of calcium
in syrup or granule; in addition to
this tho throat is thoroughly scraped
every half hour with thu bonzonte,
this being dono unfailingly at the reg
ular intervals, day and night, with no
other local treatment whatever. No
attempt is made to dislodgo tho falso
membrane. Tho nourishment consists
of beef juice, tender moat, milk, otc,
hut bread and all other articles which
may cause irritation of tho throat are
forbidden.-Now York Tribuno.
