Tho exciting incident of tho week
here has been the Woodward -Johnson
episode. Major Tom Woodward is
one of tho best men in tho State with
a crop full of sand. Johnson is a mem
ber of the June-bug legislature who
talks in a dee]) voice and with a twang.
Ho and Major Woodward had a dispu
tation in the Wlnnsboro News and
Herald and epithets were passed. Ma
jor Woodward's epithets hit the spot
so when the Major comes to Columbia
on business, Johnson, bo conies too.
He goes up to the Major attired in a
hostile aspect and demands an apology
und the Major doesn't know how to
apologize. So be. tho Major, declines
and sticks a pistol in Mr. Johnson's
face and inquired- "What are you go
ing to do about it?" "Nothing," la
conically replies Mr. Johnson.
"Ten dollars or ten days,-' said May
or Fisher to Major Woodward next

If you get into a quarrel with a man
and see that you can't get out of it with
out a fight right then and there, forgot
that ho has a bend, pick out tho second
button of bis vest and Bin ash him on it
aa hard aa you can. In 5)0 cases out of
100 you'll win tho buttle without nn
other lick. There is no foul about a
stomach blow; it's only when you get
below tho belt that you aro open to
criticism. Of courso you aro liable to
hurt a man by bitting him in the stom
ach, but that's what you are there for.
Most people who get into a sudden row
?1 am speaking of course of those who
havo never been taught how to take care

get your antagonist has u head if you
uro forced into a fight. Just take aim at
tbo place where you think bischest pro
tector stops and let drive at it. There
is not one man in 10,000 can stand a
oraek there. It takes months of train
ing to make a man's stomach Im I
enough to receive even a medium bl v

beauty and leave your visiting card with
