Ben McMeekln, Colored, Is Certainly 103
Years Old, and Maybe 110.
Whil<> at Monticello a few days ago,
a representative of The JJews and
Herald saw 'a very interesting personage,
a highly respected old colored
man, Ben McMeekin, who pays that he
is 110 years old. The McS?eekin
family to whom Ben belonged in old
slavery days corroborated Ben's
statement to a great extent. The
family know that he is at least 103,
and th.:y sny that Ben may be correct
in givi.g h:? aze at 110. When the
reporter saw old Ben the old man was
at the Camp Means picnic sitting as
upright on a stump as a man SO years
of age. In bis shirt Fleeves, a pair of
pants .made of innumerable patche?,
bare-footed, it was the type of a civilization
that ha? nearly passed away.
Ben's shirt was open in front down to
the waist, and a more splendidly developed
chest the reporter had never
seea. His eyesight is said to be very
good. Ben is still quite active, aod it
is eutertaiuiug to hear him talk of
old time3. lie shows the greatest deference
and respect to the white people,
and he commands their respect. He
has a very high reputation for good
character and faithfulness in work.
fmm? qHoivj* thaf, hs has been a
man of most remarkable physique.
On account of bis age, Beu ought to
be taken in charge by the good people
of Fairfield, and the rest of his days
spent in comfort. His lge entitles him
to it. He must be the oldest human
being in the State.

"THE LITERATURE AND LITERARY
INFLUENCES OF T HE BIBLE.
President Woodward Dolight* his Audience
Last Friday evening the members of
I be Teachers' Jnstitu e and the citizens
of Winnsboro enpyed bearing Presi^
f Ka QrtntK
UCUIr ? nuvunaiu, Ul k^uuiu
Carolina College, deliver his celebrated
lecture og the "Literature and Literary
IiifluenceB of the Bible." The
address was delivered iu the Court
House before an audience composed of
many of the very best educated and
cultivated portion of our county that
would have inspired any lecturer with
the desire to communicate in the very
best words hi3 very best thoughts.
President Woodward's reputation
as a public lecturer on literary *ub
jects is now so well and firmly established
in this State, that it is unnecessary
for us to epe>k of it. His famous
lecture on Shakespeare arid his art in
Charleston two years ago won for him
the most unqualified praise as a master
of the English tongue, as a rhetorician
of moit distinguishing taste and
a* a speaker of remarkable point, precision
and skill. The people of our
eouuty heard him deliver this celebrated
lecture two years ago, and,
therefore, when tbey.asiembled to hear
him last Friday evening:, many of
them brought with thern the recollection
of this lecture and were prepared
to be elevated in agitation, quickened
in spiritual desire and toglo^with
yearn'ng after the clear Alpioe heights
of his pure, clear and white thought.

est, simplest and strongest AngloSaxon
words, though the English literature
was then being crowded with
words of foreigu derivation and with
weak pollysyllables, he placed before
his audience this Book of Books as the
conservatory of pure undefiled English
and as the strong preventive
against our language being inundated
with its accessions from almost every
j io gue during the last three hundred
J je-irs. Haviog placed this Book be
frtra his andience. with a master's
j hand, he unclasped it and as he turned
j lis leaves with tendar grace and ex!
quisite touch, bis cultured audience
j hung with delight on his words and
: followed fcim with untiring attention
- as he showed its literary treasures and
1 touched with a reverential hand upon
thought and theme beyond "the reaches
of our sou's."
Our admiration impels us farther,
but want of space forbids. Preiident
Woodward will alway# meet a warm
welcome when he comas among us,
and we wish him to come as often as
his pressing daties may permit.
President Woodward was introduced
to the audience by Mr. 6. D. Dunn
inapt and well chosen words.

1Vr. Editor: As the time appointad
for the Road ConprP3s is near, th?
28th., I shall ven'?ru to suggest a line
of action, houiii<; chat it may engage
1 the attention of tho*e interested in the
Considering oar present heavy taxation
I think it wouid not be expedient
to urge any material increase therein;
consequently if any action be taken by
the congress, likely to meet the approval
of the coanty at large, it mast
be aetion requiring the smallest possible
Again if any expensive work, such
as macadamizing, be resolved upon.
justice require* that such work should
be placed where it would benefit the
largest number, and then, as far as
possible, the expense should be equitably
distributed. To meet these conditions,
and to make a small beginniug
both to gain experience and to
educate the people up to good roads,
I make the following suggestioni:
l#t. That all the public roads of
Mt. Zion township, outside the town
limits be macadamized with a single
2od. That the expen se incicien
thereto be thn3 laid, 2-5 of same on
1 the township and 3-5 on the county.
3rd. That an effort be made to secure
the labor of convicts from the
! The number of miles to be worked
by thia plan would be about eight.
If macadamizing eight teet wide can
ho dnrtfi for SI.000 ricr mile, this
i would require $3,000. If thi3 arnoont
i be floated in bonds at six per cent the
annual interest would be ?480-2-5
| of this for the township would be less
j than $200 and $300 for the county?
demanding an increase in township
taxes of only 1-4 mill and on county !
taxes only 1-16 mill or less than 5 cts J
increase on each $10 taxes as now
paid in the county. s.

So Blythewood is on a boom, at
least we . have become informed that ,
this is the case, ihrough the columns
of The News and Herald. There is
considerable speculation in this neigh- ;
borhood a5 to the exact nature of the (
boom. The correspondents, who are ]
the authors of this startling piece of ;
news, state that this condition uf af- _
fairs is driO to the (act that it "takes
two correspondents to report the
news!" While one would not wish to
be annoying by preying to inquisitive i
