To the Citizens of Walhalla:
Just a word for our Mayor. To

that we have such a man for Mayor:
A man who has the best inlorest of

wonderful that we can have a Mayor
who can furnish us with all tho |
sports of duck hunting, boat riding,
turtlo catching and all kinds of di
versions that wo would ordinarily
have to spend quite a sum to enjoy,
right hero on Main street, without
any extra charge whatever, then tho

of such a man?
I have no reference to what any
one has had to say, but I wisli to r
that 1/ for one, stand with the

hope tho town at largo will give him
their hearty co-operation, and any
man that accepts \\la position^should
have the sympathy and aid of' ovory

nor am I throwing any stones at any

Herbert Hoover says there aro 3,
5 00,000 children Ju that country
whose lives will depend on our aid
this winter. There are many chil
dren there eight or nine years of ago
not yet able to walk for lack of pro
per food, and many with twisted
backs and crooked limbs, Uko a de
formed tree in the woods, because
their mothers could not satisfy their
cries for bread.
In many respects this ls a remark

President Wilson says:
"Since 1914 our people have given
with unparalleled generosity, and
they should not be lightly called up
on for additional charities. Put
there is a life and death situation in
Central Europe, where orphans, des
titute, famished children, pitiful con
sequences of the World War, must
die unless aid is sent,
j "Ten dollars contributed through
the European Relief Council will
save the life of ono child. For con
certed effort, there have been com
bined in this 'council eight well
known organizations, namely, the
[American Relief Association, tho
American Red Cross, the American
Friends' Service Committee, Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee. Fed
eral Council of Churches of Christ in
America, Knights of Columbus, Y.M.
C. A. and the Y. W. C. A.
"At Christmas time, peculiarly the
children's feast, we should think of
this sad European problem in terms
of children rather than in money.
Ten dollars will represent a child's
life In Central Europe. I shall adopt
20 children as my own temporary
wards, and I can think of no better
use to which I could put $200.
"I suggest to my fellow country
men that the circles around their
Christmas trees wjll be Incomplete
unless, mingled with their own ex
pectant children, they shall visualize
somo of the waifs of Central Europe,
stretching out their th.a hands to
pluck from the boughs of th'? t <? i
not toys, but bread, without ?yh?eh

REMINISCENCE OF ORR'S ""(PT.
Old Letter Found by Leo G. Hollo
man Among Papers.
In going over some old papers re
cently, Leo G. Holloman came across
a letter written by his father, and
addressed to him In the following
manner: "To my boy, Lee G. Hollo
pian, Anderson, S. C." The letter
was written on July 21st, 1008, and
was never malled, but was given to
Mr. Holleman several years lator.
Tho lottor ls Interesting, especially
to some of the older peoplo in An
derson and Oconeo counties, for lt
has to do with the surviving mem
bers of Orr's Regiment at the time
lt was written.
"To-day,,forty-seven years ago," it
roads, "Orr's Regiment of Rifles was
organized and mustered into the ser
vice of the Confederate States at
Sandy Springs. It was composed of
ton companies of ono hundred men
and four officers oach, and four of
those wore from Pickens District,
now Oconee and Pickens counties,
viz.: Co. A, Capt. J. W. Livingston;
Co. C, Capt. J. J. Norton; Co. E,
Capt. M. M. Norton; Co. F, Capt. R.
"These companies on that day had
416 men in them, and afterwards
had a good many recruits to Join
thom. How does the roll now read in
this part of Oconee county?
"All that I rocall while writing
this that aro now allvo and livo in
this county are: J. T. Reid, W. H.
Herron, T. H. Stribllng. Leonard
Rogers, J. W. Rogers. S. H. Fricks,
L. H. Brandt, J. W. Holleman. W. W.
Moss, M. A. Terrell, S. K. Dendy, I).
S. Hull, Dock Clinkscalos, S. P. Tan
nery-fourteen in all that I can
think of while writing this. There
are no doubt a few moro that I do
not recall, but not many. It would |
bo safe to say that f.OG men belonged i
to thoso four companies from the
first to the last during the war. Now
just think for a moment of only 14
out of f>00."
Mr. Holleman's list is liTcely dimin
ished greatly by this time, for the
lettor was written twelve years a?o.
Of the entire regiment of Orr's Rifles
there are but a few of the valiant old
Confederates stiU alive.
(Noto.-Of tho Hst given In tho
abovo old letter from Mr. Holleman,
so far ns wo are able to state defi
nitely thero la but one alive to-day
Capt. S. K .Dondy, of Walhalla. It
is possiblo that thero are one or two
others, hut In rending over Ibo list
the name of Capt. Dendy is the only
one wo bol'/vo to bo living.-Ed.
