tho commendable enterprise shown in
tho improvement of the roadbed under

tho 'good people of Anderson are peti
tioning for tho erection of a new stone
bridge over Ibo Hine Itidgo track in their
thriving city,' and suggests thal Auder

halla gets a now track, as Walhalla needs
a track moro than Anderson does a
"Anderson would defer to tho neces
sities of its neighbor, Walhalla, il il
wore not the fact tho necessity for a
crossing is imperative. lt is evident
from the Improvements thal have been
made on the road thal lin' amount of
available cash is on hand and if may not
bo necessary to defer Anderson's r'upiost
for a permanent, structure, as the >ocos
sities of Walhalla and the rcquosl of
Anderson eau be accomplished at thc
"Timber is placed and work is about
to commence in repairing the old bridge
By lids action tho receiver virtually ad
mils Anderson's contention thal thc
structure is unsafe, bul what the town
wants is something permanent, some
thing ill keeping with lier demands as a
live business centre."- Anderson t or.

With all due deference wo submit thal
Walhalla md only needs a new track, bul
also needs a now depot niue ll worse than
Anderson needs a new iron m stone arch
over thc road bed of the Hine llidgo. ll
scorns that complain! is made against Itu
colver Health- because ho is preparing lo
repair Ibo railroad brid :? in thal i ?ty. and
keep it safe. It is a largo wooden trestle
Ol bridge, but it bas answered all our
poses ill tho past, and can de so foi thc ',
future. Wo have in ver heard of any
serious accidents brought ahoul by Hs
bad condition, and tho intention is t..
keep it in thorough repair. There can bi
no valid objection urged against its
safety. 'Tis true a tine stone arch inlgbl
contribute to tho aesthetic eillttll 0 of our
enterprising neighbors, bul Hie public
travel can be just as well conserved by a
wooden structure as by one ol stone.
We think Walhalla can with becoming
grace ask that the requests of Anderson
ho deferred until after a new track and a
new depot have boon blushed at this omi
of the line, lt will be reenl'ed that only
a few years since thc town ol' Walhalla
made a donation of about ?r>l2,00U to this
road. Has Anderson done so much'.1 He
sides the freight and passongoi hallie
handled at the Walhalla depot pays tho
Hine Itidgo better than thal handled al
its Anderson depot. Anderson happens
to have two competing lines and these do
thc greater part of lu i business. Thc

Comments by Mr. Cook.
Ko irr MAOISON, .Juno 23.-Thore is so
much rain wo can't work, lt is moro than
twenty-five day? sinco tho land was dry
enough to plow on tho Tugaloo bottoms,
and il is still raining, witt! no indications
of a lot up. About half tho cotton crops
have not been thinned to a proper stand.
Tho grass and weeds aro aa high aa tho
cotton, and I have got tho blues.
I was coming homo from tho mill ibo
other day when I saw two mon driving
through (heir corn Hold w illi a two-horso
wagon. I asked another man, who waa
standing near tho roadside, what thoso
fellows were doing in their corn with a
two-horse wagon. Ho said: "Hoss, wo
are building a pasturo boro; wo can do
nothing w id dat corn now. 'Mudy glass
. hmo been took il.-" Thus tho condition
of ibo crops can better be i Ul agi nod than
described. These men's crops worein no
worse condition (han tho average crops
in tho vicinity.
Wo went iii town tho other day und
happened to moot up with some little
jug headed cotton speculators, who, be
tween the pull's of the smoko from their
cigarettes, could tell us piociaoly how
many million hales of cotton would be
made and just how much surplus, and all
about tho bulls and tho boars, tho longs
and thc shorts, otc. lint I did not ask
them whether they were dorsey bulla or
common scrub stock, or white bears, or
black or gri/.zley : or how long was tho
longest or how short tho shortest. 1
know thal those little swells never make
their calculations for leas than 12,000,000
babs, no maller what happens to tho
crop. They seem to think that wo can't
make less than 12,000,000 bales, and that
WO won't get more than live cents por
pound for il next fall. The truth is, they
don't know much more about tho price
of colton next fall than a hog knows about
a prayer book. Whim they wore selling
guano to us ahout three or four months
ago. they seemed lo think cotton would
he len '-onls this fall ; but their opinion
has changed considerably, lt ll OOS SOOIll
lo nie t bal it would be just as much boi'O
tii to the mei chants and cotton buyers to
keep the price of calton up, as it would
lu; to thc farmers. Of cours*', if tho
larmer gets a low price for his cotton, tho
merchant cannot make good collections;
if the merchant fails to collect from tho
larmer thc hanker cannot collect from
the merchant. Il tho cotton speculator
has to pay a good price for colton ho can
also sell il at a good price. Therefore,
nom- of thom are burt with high prices,
hut the winde country is benclited.
Well, lb?- census enumera tor bas been
around, asking hundreds of unnecessary
questions. Hut ho was a very nico,
manly fellow, and as he is tho only man
win luis a law fal right to meddle and
pry into other people's business, wo did
liol raise any muss with him. Wo wore
si little sorry for him. Wo know ho has
.".onie hard nuts to crack, and a tough
job before him. We understand that lu
w ent to a certain bouse on his rounds
and was asking the lady of tho house
the necessary questions about the chil
dren Sho showed him two of tho dill
dion, ard '.old him that they wore twins.
Ile asked tho name ol' one of them ami
who! hoi il was born in South Carolina
-i (?eorgia. Ile was told thal it wai
born in South Carolina. Ile then naked
if they were both born in South Carolina.

day morning. For several days Salford
had soomcd greatly doprossod mid had
acted strangely at timon. Ho scorned to
think that overybody was making fun of
him, and that iu souio way Mr. Fowler
was repoiHihlo for it. This idoa soomod
to dominate ins mind all tho timo. Sov
oral portions noticed it, but no ono paid
much attention to it.
Wodoesday aftornoon Fowlor and Sal
ford wont together to Domorost. They
spout tho night at tho homo of Mr. Sal
ford, Sr. Thoro thoy occupied tito samo
room. Salford wns restless and oxoitod,
and kept chat ging Fowlor with offerts to
guy bim. Fowler told him thoro was
nothing in it-to got quiet and go to
sloe]). As Salford soomod to grow moro
oxoitod, Fowler loft tho room. Salford's
motlier endeavored to soothe and quiet
him as tho hours of tho night past by.
Karly Thursday morning tho oidor Mr.
Salford was walking with Mr. Fowlor in
tho orchard, when Hort Salford stole up
behind owler and dealt a terrible stioke
at his throat with a koon razor. Ho out
both jugular veins on thc right, side, just
missing tho artery. Tho wound is four
and a half inches long.
Mr. Fowlor exhibited astonishing
nervo. Ho walked half a milo rapidly to
tho doctor's ellice, clutching tho wound
with his hand. Hardly a groan ascapotl
him as tho ghastly cut was hoing sowed
up. Ho has a lighting chanco for recov
Tho affair is distressing to his many
friends, who earnestly hopo that his lifo
will bo s.'ivod. Tho family and relatives
lltiVO the Bympathy of all in their terrible
grief. Hrs. Lamb, Dillard and West
took part in dressing the wound. Hort
Salford is at present conlinod in tho
Clarkcsville jail for safe keening. Ho is
ovidenty in a demented condition. The
assault on his brother-in-law was in a
paroxysm of insanity. Thoro had been
no misunderstanding between thom;
they batt had no quarrel. Tho lamenta
ble occurrence was due to the disordered
condition td' Sa If or d's mind.
