Orva Phillips, ~he adopted son of Mayor John Lawrence, in com- pany with Glenn Wllhams, Wilson Wil- liams, Bric~ Mack and Willie Hammond had brought to the reservoir au old fiat bottomed boat, made some years ago by James Buchanan, and had patched it up. The boat leaked badly and was not a very safe thing for boys unaccustomed to the use of boats to fool with. They d~d not have any oars and to propel it used two pieces of six inch boards and two long poles. ,The first trip only four of the boys were in the boat--the Hammond boy not going. The second time they all got in. By this time the boat was getting badly water logged and when about half way acrem the pond they discovered that the boat was sinking. Then all jumped out. The two Williams boys and Willie Ham- mond could swim and they pulled out for the west end of the reservoir, where the water was shallow. Brice Mack could not swim but he held on to the piec~ of board he had been using as an oar and tt was sufficient to support him and kept his head out of water. He was in the water for about half an hour and was brought to shore by Messrs. Lockett and Sehonberg, who swam out to him. The alarm was given in town by Glenn Williams, who, as soon as~he found that Orva had sunk, jumped on a horse and immediately notified Mr. Lawrence aud others. Ina very few moment~ a hun- dred people were on the spot. The boys had all removed their clothes before getting into the boat and to this fact the other four no doubt owe their lives. There has not bean any water in the reservoir until very recently.Several NEW- 0RK TR1 Pnbli~l Monday, !

[Copyright, 19~0, by C. B. Lewis.] One day, as the akound of Swat had returned from a trip around town, dur- ing which thousands of his subjects had knelt to do him homage, he called for his grand secretary and said: "Remshen, I'm a good deal of a fel- ler, ain't I ?" "You are, 0 heaven born!" was the Teply. "Would you call me the biggest thing on earth ?" "Truly, but you are!" "While I'm around on this earth there can be no other boss, eh, Rem- shen T' "All other things are but a fly on a bull wheel compared to your extra highness." "But how about the heavens, Rem- siren?" continued the akound after chuckling his satisfaction. "I mn sat- isfied that I boss the earth, even to the mountains and rivers thereof, but I'm not exactly clear as to the sun, moon and stars Don't they come under my rule as well?" "Post not remember, 0 mighty ruler, that your title is Akound the ~lghty, CRIED OUT FOR THE MOON TO TAKE A DROP, boss of the earth and owner of all the planets above? Your humble slave as- sures you that the sun, moon and every star will hustle to do your bidding." "Thanks, Remshen. I must be a daisy for sure. Not being clear on the subject, I haven't given much atten- tion to celestial matters, but now I think I'll give them a whirl. If a fel- ler is going to be boss at all, he might as well be a boss on wheels." "That is true, O akound, and when you get ready to command the moon to come off her perch I will issue procla. matlon and gather the people." Old Remshen was a fawning syco- phant on skates. He had a good thing and wanted to keep it. He had said the same fulsome words to his master a hundred times over, but nothing had come of it except to make his position more solid. A day or two after the above conversation and while he was going around the palace with a molas- sea grin on his face the bell jingled, and he was called into the presence of his master. "By the way, Remshen, do you re- cloud bursts have occurred on the water shed to the northwest during the past two weeks and the reservoir had filled up so that in some places it was from ten to twelve feet deep. The water was very muddy and also very cold and this member our little conversation the oth- made it impossible for any one to stay in er day?" queried the akound. "Can a slave forget his master's it for any great length of time. The discharge pipes were opened and iu the evening the water had been lower- edso that the pond could be waded. About 10:30o'cicok at nigbt tbe body was found by Ira Colvin and Sterling Hedges. It was lying under about/hree feet of water. Orva Phillips was born in Sa~uache 14 years ago May llth. His father is dead but his mother--Mrs. Lussey--two brothers and two sisters live at Silverton. Mrs. Humphrey Fullerton of this place is another sister. The family at Silver. I tou were wired the news of his death. Orva Phillips was taken when but a small child by Mr. and Mrs. John Law- rence and they were to him all that nat- ural parents could be. They were great= [ ly attached to him and his tlagm death affected them very much. Mrs. Law. fence required the attentions of a physi- i oian and Mr. Lawrence staid at the rea- l erroir until the body was recovered. The funeral occurred last Saturday I afternoon at 2 o'clock. Don't be satisfied with temporary re lief from indigestion. Kodol Dyspepsia , Cure permanently and completely re- moves lhis complaint. It relieves per-i manenHy because it allows the tired stomach perfect rest. Dieting won't rest i the stomach. Nature receives supplies from the food we eat. The sensible way to help the stomach is to use Kodol Dys- pepsia Cure, which digests what you eat and can't help but do you" good. Sa- guaehe Pharmacl, words?" asked Remshen as he lifted his hands in protest. "I've been thiuklng, l'm a heap of a feller, and you know it, and I know it, bnt there may be a man or two on the outside who differs with us. I want to do something big to knock 'era all out." "Will it please thee to behead a thou- sand men 7" "Well, yes, it would, but as it is just about tax time we'd better leave their heads ou their shoulders nntil they have paid in the sugar. I think I'll go for the moon, Remshen. She'll be full tonight, and I'll order her to come down to earth." "But, O ruler, she might be damaged in the fall," protested Remshen, begin- ning to quake with fear. 'Tll look out for that. We'll spread a feather bed for her to light on. Just issue a proclamation for the people to gather on the east side of my palace at 10 o'clock tonight." "The moon, O ruler, Is sometimes ob- stinate," suggested Remshen as he felt a pain. "She has even been known to disobey mighty potentates." "But she'll tumble for me, or I'll know the reason why! Is it not in my title that I am owner of all the planets above? Get along, old boy, and issue that proclamation. When my subjects discover that I can wallop old Luna around at will, there'll be no more kicking about high taxes." Old Remshen was boxed up and couldn't say another word. He went away and Issued his proclamation and then beseeched the grave of his father, the bones of his mother and his lucky Jtnrs to ~end a dark night to knock the ~srl~0~t On th0 hea~, ~ Wa~ 10al~, mg mnous wilco night came and the old York state cheese arose In all her glory. Everybody In town was out, and the odds were five to one that the akound would win. At the hour named he appeared on the steps of his palace aud lifted his hands and cried out for the moon to take a drop. It was a dead failure. He cried out again and again, but the moon continued her gait. "Remshen." said the boss of earth when he realized that he was knocked out, "dismiss the populace and come with me." The populace went away with thell tongues in their cheeks, and when th~ akound had reached his library he said: "How L~ this, Remshen? Why didn't the moon come down?" "O ruler," replied the old sycophant as his heart tunked his ribs, "there is a difference between theory and fact." "I see. Theoretically I am owner of the planets, Practically I am an ass. I ought to imve got ou to this, but being o busy It never occurred to me. Rem- shen, old boy, come out in the back yard with me." "O mighty ruler, but what would you ?" "I'm going to give auother illustra- tion of theorY versus fact. Theoretically you are my grand secretary and one of the most eminent men in the kingdom. As a matter of fact you are a head shorter, and your bones will go to en- rich my gooseberry bushes!" M. QVA~). Astounded the .~.dltor. Editor S. A. Brown~[~ Bennettsville, S. C., was once immensely surprised. "Through long suffering from dyspep. sis," he writes, "my wife was greatly run down. She had no strength or wgor and suffered great distress from her stomach, but she tried Electric Bitters which helped her at once, and, after using four bottles, she ie entirely well can eatanything. Its a grand tonic, and its gentle laxative qualities are splendid for torpid liver." For indigestion, loss of appetite, stomach and liver troubles its a positive, guaranteed cure.
