“Home Brevities.”

Mr. W. H. Sadler, of this city, is in possession of two family heirlooms that he prizes very highly, and which possess a historic value.  One of these is a walnut dining table and the other a walking cane, belonging to and used by his great-great-grandfather, Col. Bratton, one of South Carolina’s heroes in the revolution, being the leading figure in the defeat of Huck, an event which helped largely to turn the tide of American fortune in that great struggle.  They have been carefully preserved and show little abuse, considering their age, much over a hundred years.
