WHILE ROUGHING IT ( Uncle Zeke Has Some Funny Experiences. NEARLY CHOKED TO DEATH BY A WOMAN'S FOOT. Should Watch Where He Gees and : ow He Sleeps. I lmve been out on thp rnst)i> fc;r ft few dayH among the fjood ple of Pickens, nnd T do not h"titrte to tell you that I hnVo been enjoying uij-self. The weather was delightful, the roads in prime condition, and everybody 8eem?>d like homefolke. Those sociable, friendl)', evorydnv tort of pooplo, who warm up the "Gocklog of the heart" and make you glad you met them and hope to moot them again. i nave oiten hoard agents, when relating their experiences, teil of the bIuis and insult* they have received, and the general all-round cuBBe<inoS9 of the people they meet. [ have none of these to relate, 1'?r I have found tliut folks generally 4. A ? irnat m j auout na 1 trout them, and if the snub comes 1 can blame myself for inviting it to a great extent. Still a llustlor lias some very queer experiences?some fanny and some otherwise?and I, trust tii.it the readers of the Sentinel-Journal will pardon me if I relate one of my own. A 1 <* -rt. iiumour 01 years ago 1 was rustling a paper in a sparsely sottlod community. One day I found myself a long distance lroni town with night coming on and a storm gathering. I pulled in at :i wayaid? cabin andcallod for accomoda ti^ns for the night. ^Tlie lord and master was a good natured soul and a character in his way, and allowed I was welcome if I could put up with their fare. 1 replied that T ought to stand it for a night if they could stand it for a life time. After leading my horse to a "leanto" I entered the cabin and proceeded to make ii menfcul inventory of my aorroundings. which consisted of the old man, the old woman, two kidn and one bed. Not a very encouraging outlook for u tire?l man. Ah the night wnn cool there wan a running lire on the hearth, but with u joalous eyo on a pillow laying on a box in tho corner, and wi'll II llPilUU Iilutui" niiOMA..! 1 wad not dieposed to worry ovor the situation. The good wor^an aaid nhe would make a ''shako-down" on the lloor and lot the stronger have the bed. But. as she was complaining with the toothache aiul a misery in the DRCKanci was not ieeling v^ry well, I would not agree to the proposition, and told them I could get along very well in a chair l>y the fire. Something I had not the remotest idea of doing. When it came the hour for retiring I wont out to see how my horse was progressing with his corn, and on returning to the house f found the family tucked away snugly u bed. The old man \va8 in front, the two kids in the middle, and the old woman next to the wall. Soon the music started, snores in four different keys filling the room. Quietly slipping off my shoes, and taking the pillow, I lay acro.su tho foot of the bed with my overcoat over me. l was soon sleeping as sweetly as though in rose blankets and eider down. I low long I slept I do not know, hut I awoke with a feeling of suiTocation and n toriible choking 'sensation. The (ire was burn ing low, casting it? dim and ghostly lighl iti fantastic figures on tho walls, giving tho room a wild and weird appearance, and in niy imagnation I was In tho hands of garroters and robt>ers.
