Tamasso und Goonoo station.
There are many facts in regard to
Tamassee and Oconce Station which
aro unknown to tho general public.
For instance. Tamasssoo, tho home
of Cen. Andrew Picketts, was n small
tract of land-IO or 50 acres in ex
t<"it. It came to Gen. Pickons as a
^;!.:i?t from tho government in recog
n'.ioil of his services. There have
been but live owners of Tamnssoe.
li canto into Gen. Dickens's posses
sion in 177<> or 1777-that is, the
original Tamassee grant of about f?fl
acres. Overton 'Lewis was the next
owner of Tamassee (original), and
Blain Sharp was the next in succes
sion, he. like -Mr. Lewis, coming into
ownership by purchase of the origi
nal tract. Robert Y. -1 layne then pur
chased Ibo Tamasso tract, and it re
mained in that family for a number
of years, descending (o Mr. 1 layne's
daughter, Frances Henrietta ?layne.
Christopher .Iones was tho next pos
sessor, coming into ownership ahoul
the year 1862. Various tracts liad
been added from time to time io tho
original Tamassee tract, ami i. was
at this tillie (tuite a large body of
land. Mr. jones added considerably
to this purchase, which of course had
included Iben the present homestead
ol' Tamassee. where Hie widow of C.
Jones, wiih her daughter, Miss Net
tle loues, still reside, 'nie TamassoO

The Oconee Station has been for
many years in the possession of thc
Misses Green. Tt was purchased by
Garrison Groen from William McFall
I about 1S75 or 1S7I!. Since the. death
of the father, the .Misses Gi "con have
owned tho property continuously and
have resided there, managing the
farm with marked ability and a (lo

THE LOST GRAND DUKE
npHOSE faaiillar wUh the pomp and
ceremony which hedged In tho
former court of Austria hnve always
maintained that the tragic disappear
ance of Johann Salvator, archduke of
Austria, prince of Hungary and grand
ducal prince %t Tuscany) cousin of
Frunc?s Joseph and son of Leopold n,
was due as much to his radical tend
encies and the fact that he persisted
in niling his views In print ns to lils
Infatuation for Ludmilla Stuhel, tho
beautiful daughter of a Vienna shop
keeper. In furtherance of this opin
ion, they advance tho unnssalhdde evi
dence that Kaiser Wilhelm Insisted
upon the punishment of Archduko
Johann when the latter urged un Hill
anco between Russin and Austria In
order to curb the threatened dornt?
nance of Get .nany in European poli
Whatever the cause, tho youi\g arch
duke's reaction to the discipline In
flicted by his royal cousin was to re
sign nil his honors, strip himself of
his titles, convert a large portion of
bis estate Into cash, and, as the crown
ing Insult to his relatives, to elope
with Ludmilla Stubel, whom In? had
met Incognito some months before.
According to all available reports?
there was no doubt of Ludmilla's
beauty, but n. marriage between nn
archduke of thc royal blood and tho
daughter bf1 n poor shopkeeper was
too much for the high-spirited Haps
burns to swallow without a struggle.
Johann, however, informed all who
brought him messages from his titled
; kinsmen that he was no longer of the
I royal house-tbnt he lind renounced
all Ids claims to tho honors which
i wore his by right of birth, nnd tbnt
! henceforth he could be nothing moro
than Johann Salvator, a private citi
zen of tho world.
When lt became known' that he
really Intended cnrr> lng through his
wild plan, even force wns resorted .to
In order to prevent him from contract
ing what was recognized ns a mesnlll
nnce, but he concealed his Identity un
I der the name of John Orth-the nnme
which he lind used In courting Lud
milla Stuhel-and the pnlr were has
tily married, and then escaped to Lon
I don. Here, still retaining his adopted
' nnme, the archduke chartered the bark
I Margharlla, signed up a captain' and
j crew and sailed for South America,
where the ship had formerly been en
j gaged In the nitrate trade.
The M irgharlta s usual courin yffx*
between Due?os Aires nnd Valparaiso,
and. after making several puceessful
trips, sin lliinily left the former port
on lui ' '. ! SOO-had < anished as
i completely ns If tho ?ea had opened
and swallowed her. Despite the most
i diligent searches, undertaken at the In
? 8tigntlon of the Austrian government,
! nothing definite was ever heard of tho
! ship or the members of the crew,
though rumors that Archduko .Tohnnn
; had been seen nt many times nnd In
many places have been current from
that day to this. Tho most credible of
: these reports ls that made by nn ofll
; dal Investigator of the Cruguny gov
ernment, who secured affidavits to the
effect tluit tho Morghnrltn had* put
In at a lonely place on the coast
of that country, where the nnme hud
been painted out and she had then
sailed up the Uruguay river. "Orth,"
i the report stated, lind then pnld off his
, crew, nnd with the help of two or three
of his Intimate companions bad set anil
further inland-but hore the trnll wns
lost, never to be ref on nd.
During the Chilean war Archduko
John nu was reported to be fighting on
I the side of tho congressional ist s, nnd,
some ten years later, the son of tho
president of Argentina staled tbnt he
lind made the trip from Rue?os Aires
j to Cherbourg with a man who was
: none other than the former nrcliduke
I of Austria. In addition the lost grand
, j duke has been "located" In Cnllfornln,
I has been 'Identified" ns Admiral Yamn
? gata of the Japanese nnvy, and wns
j "recognized" by reputable witnesses In
; several engagements of the World war.
Evidently the emperor of Austria never
placed full credence In the story of
Ids death, for In Francis Joseph's will
1 was a clause to the effect tbnt tho
archduke's estnte nf some $10,000.000
wns to be held Intact until something
definite was learned about Ids fate-a
point upon which tho memoirs of tho
former kaiser may eventually throw
some light. Until this the mystery of
the lost grand duke must remain ns
one of the unsolved riddles of history.

Tho modern cultivated apple orig
inated in tho wild crab apples ol* Eu
rope und tho Orient. Through con
stant selection and improvement vast
changes have been wrought in its
quality and productiveness.
Botanically the apple belongs to
thc samo fair. I ly as tho hawthorn,
choke-berry, service berry, mountain
ash and the wild crabs. The apple,
although it is hard for us to believe,
is really a near relative of tho roses,
raspberries, blackberries and straw
berries, and is somewhat further re
moved from plums, peaches and
other stone fruits.
When tho settlors first came to
America tiley found species of wild
crabs growing in tho forests, which
were used by tho natives as food.
Along the river banks were found |
groves of crab apples, hawthorns,
plums and cherries. From these wild
fruits they made crab apple butter,
plum preserves, cherry pies and othor
tb Ilea civ* (ha! furnished f ru 11 fi

and for the preservation o.f health.
The temperate zo.Je i1 the native
thorne of the apple. ;.i the. temperate
zone it inclines to the north und Une*
there its best or optimum condition
for growth. As an evidence of tho!
hardiness of tho apple and its lovo
for a cool climate, it, may bo un
known to ninny that most magnifi
cent apples aro grown in Canada,
away north of the Great Lakes. In
this region tho rivers aro ice-bound
for several* months of the year, the
ground is covered with I h reo or four
feet of snow, and tho thermometer
! is sometimes 30 degrees below zero.
! Xor!bern people wonder how, tho cool
climate loving apple can grow In
i North and South Carolina and Geor
' gin. They will (ind, however, that, it
is tho nord climate of tho mountain
ous section wherein tho. apple reaches
its greatest stage of development, lt
lis interesting to noto tho instinctive
desires of ibo apple treo and what
conformity lt shows to local condl
, lions. In tho low altitudes where tho
?cotton plant ts at homo tho apple
tree is most uncomfortable, except
with the early or summer varieties,
and it is hard in such localities to
keep apple trees in life.
Observations conducted through
out the country show that thc apple
grows best where the folowlng condi
tions are found:
in temperate,zone; cool summers
and cold winters; rich loam and clay
soils; high altitude; copious and con
stant rainfall; good drainage; abun
dant, sunlight; constant supply of hu
mus and plant food.
You will note that all of these con
ditions arc bounteously fulfilled in
tho blessed climate of Coonee. Hero
Its what Prof. W. X. Hil lt, of the
North Carolina Agricultural College,
says: "Tho 'Sunny South', particu
larly in its mountain regions, luis
Hie clear air and abundant sunlight
that put the right colors on the out
side of the fruit and the line Havers
within." Other things being equal,
tho greater tho amount of sunlight,
the higher colored the fruit. In re
gions where cloudy skies arc preva
lent, fruits and also flowers, are of
dull colors. The maximum hours of
sunlight are obtained at high eleva
tions. It ls for tit i H reason Hint the
jnountain-growh fruit is superior In
color and flavor to that of Hie same
varieties grown in the lowlands.
I lt is only in tho last few decades
that fruit growers generally havo bo
