two colored men were standing in the
tan-yard when the tree was struck and
were auite severe! v shockftd. Mr:
Schiff describes the sensation as verv
unpleasant indeed, and as confined al
most entirely to his head which felt
very much as if it had been struck with
a narumer. lie says it was fully three
hours before he entirely recovered from
the shock. The colored men were
similarly affected, though not so severe
ly snocKea. They were all only about
forty or fifty feet from the tree.
Succumbed t Superior Circumstance
It is a hard thing to "keen a workiner-
man down," but our Columbia corres
pondent, usually so prompt with his re
ports of anything interesting, flopped on
the 13th, and up to the present time has
failed to get in his report of the pro
ceedings. Whether this is because he
is a soldier and marched too hard on that
day, or whether, because in the demon
stration of his hospitality he persisted
in too often proving to the Hornets'
Nest Biflemen that "it wasn't pizen," is
not for us to say, and it would not be
kind in us to say, even if we knew, see
ing that he has been again belated. But
so he has, and after stating that he went
to Augusta Thursday, on an excursion
witn a parcel 01 Columbia college girls,
we merely point to the following from
the Augusta News :
"The saddest thins of the entire riav
consists in the fact that Col, W, H, Fa
ber, who is chief engineer of the excur.
sion party from Columbia, got left on
the boat, and had to foot it up to the
locks. However, as the colonel is fleet
of foot, he passed the Pinafore on the
home stretch, and arrived an hour be
fore the paity.
One of tbe Welcome of the II. N. EC.
Among the many marks of favor
shown to the Hornets' Nest llillemen by
the ladies, and citizens Of Columbia
generally, while the company were in
that ity, were two exceedingly hand
some bouquets, accompanied by the
Columbia, S. C, May 14th, 1879.
Officers and Members of the
tiomeis jyesz jujiemen:
Gentlemex; I hope you will excuse
the liberty which I take; but having
had the honor of waiting on you, being
porter of the Governor Guards, I de
sire to extend to you the welcome of
the colored people of our city, for we
wish you to know that, though colored,
we are- glad to : welcome our white .
friends from other places. As a token',
of our respect and high esteem, please
accept the accompanying bouquets,
from myself and several ladies. Again,
gentlemen, asking you to excuse the
liberty which I take, I am,
V ery respecttully
Your obedient servant

Charlotte have an, opportunity Of hear
ing such an entertainment as the Men
delssohn Quintette Club, of Boston, will
give at the opera house to-morrow
night. They have been made to fully
appreciate this fact by the appearance
here of the celebrated company of mu
sicians last winter an wno went rer
joicing at the good fortune that had
brought tnem mere, ana tnose,wno aia

an elegant and rehned treat. As a con

will be at the'opersi botiSe to-morrow
night, unless unavoidably detained.
The club nave met witn enume ova

been repeatedly compelled to give repe
titions of their concerts in many places
Where.. they, had only. intended to play
bncfe. ' Uhd chaining Mrs, Knowles,
with her clear, sweet voice, is still with
the company, and constitutes one of
the leading attractions. Her own at
tractions, coupled with the fact that she
is the wife of the captain of one of the
military companies or noswra wmcn ex
tended generous hospitalities to the
Southern military during visits there
since the war, have been the occasion
of unusual compliments to her on the
part, or several military companies m
The whole company are genial and

give an entertainment wnicn is eieva-mg-in

Personal Note and Gossip.
Mr. W. W. Jenkins and his bride ar
rived in the city yesterday afternoon
and took rooms "at the Central Hotel.
rfter a short stay in Atlanta they re
turned to the home of ex-State Treasurer
Jenkins, in Gaston county, where they
remained until yesterday afternoon.
Miss Maggie T ucker, of Kaleigh. ar
rived in the city a day or two since.
and is the guest of Miss Annie Jones.
Judge Fowle, who is expected in the
city for the 20th, will be accompanied
by his daughters, Misses Maggie and
Mattie. They will be the guests of Dr
Thos. J. Moore.
Mr. A. L. Smith, one of the attend
ants at the marriage' ofJMr. John Orr,
in Columbus, Ga., returned yesterday
morning. The remainder of the party
went to Macon tor a snort visit.
We find the following in the Colum
bia correspondence of an Augusta pa
per: "There will be a grand picnic at the
Scheutzenplatz to-day, given by Mrs.
Shiver to the lady visitors from the
Empire State and North Carolina."
Also, from the same source as the
above, this: "An elegant German was
given last night at the residence of
Mrs. Shiver, to Miss May Shober, an
immensely popular visiting belle from
the Old North State." Miss Shober will
be in Charlotte on the 20th.
The young men who went to Colum
bia were so chaimed with the young
men they met down there that they
have invited a number of the
Columbians to come up p,n the 20th.
Three or four are certainly "expected.
There will be quite a number or visi
tors at the annual ball on the night of
the 20tb, which will be a very elegant
affair. . ,
The ball on the night of the 20th will
be followed by a German at the Central
Hotel, which will probably be the last
of the season, . . (
Anotber Swindling Device.
- a . . . . i .
It is hot amiss for us to warn our peo
ple against another swindling device
which is just now out, and which, we
see, by our. exchanges, is being played
successfully upon unsuspecting people,
all over the country. "R. V. Kings-,
well," of San Francisco, writes a letter,
for instance, to a man in Charlotte, tell
ing him that a stranger, named so and
so, died at his boarding house on. such
a day, and that as ' he (Kingsweil) has
no means of learning who his relatives
are, except by an envelope in his pocket
addressed to the person in Charlotte' to
whom Kingswell writes, he (Kingswell)
supposes that the dead man's effects
iroperly belong to this man in Char
otte the names being the same. But
and here is where the swindle comes
in the stranger owed his landlord $30
for board when he died, and that if this
amount is forwarded, the dead man's
gold watch and chain, seal ring, gold
sleeve buttons and studs, together with
a sole leather trunk the contents of
which are unknown, will be shipped
immediately to the party remitting.
Otherwise the property will be kept the
customary time and then sold for what
thev will bring.
. .Letters ot - -tnis sort are Deing sent
broadcast ' all . over the country, and
doubtless Mr. "Kingswelir is reapura a
rich harvest. We have not heard that
any of our readers have been address
ed in this way but some of them may.
be. , At all events this is to warn them;
that the whole business is a gigantic
fraud and that if any of them are , so
irerdant as to send ;'$30 to Mr. "Kings-
weli" his interest m .them will be at an
end. cviuc'ii'-x '" ,
