Anderson County at the Good Roads Con
The Greenville News, in reporting
tho proceedings of the Good Roads
".Supervisor Vandiver, of Anderson
County, was Vailed tu the floor. Ho
made n brief but interesting talk con
cerning his work in the neighboring
Count}'. He said that tho chain gang
system was employed in his County,
working 20 to DO convicts, besides tho
scrapers used by the convicts tho
County employs six additional scrapes
pulled l>y six mules and uppoitioucd to
the different townships. The convicts
are used whore other hands cannot
work. Tho County has a special road
tax, pay $1 or work on '.he road four
"Mr. Vandiver said that ho had had
a number of convicts to escape from
Iiis gang and that he thought some law
should be made to compel a convict
who has escaped to work out tin* ex
pense of catching him.
"Supervisor Me Bride and Mr. Dowl
ing spoke in favor of Mr. Vandiver's
suggestion, Supervisor Drumniondof
Laurens County said he didn't think it
was just for tho tax payers to pay the
fees for capturing the escaped convicts,
but that the convicts should be held
and made to work them out. Mr. Van
diver then made the following motion,
'That it is the sense of this body that
the Legislature amend the convict law,
renewing tho senteuceof a convict who
escapes and is recaptured.'
"Capt. J. X. King, an ex-member of
the Legislature, said that such n law
would he against tho State's constitu
tion. There was considerable discus
sion pro and con on this motion. Fi
nally Captain King made this amend
ment, 'That this body petition tho
Legislature to pass an act making it. a
misdemeanor for a convict to escape!
itfcer having been made a trusty,' this
was voted upon and passed unaui
Hobbling up Anderson.
It seem.-; that one Hudson, of. (?rcen
ville, is agent of the Wadsworth Trus
tees, and seeking to recover for them
lands on which thu city ot Anderson is
built. And the good people ot Ander
son, or some of them, re excited. We
are of the opinion that they may rest
their souls in patience and keep what
they have if not what, they own. \
In 1858 "Joseph Cox, Esq., surveyor,"
in Wadsworth Trustees vs. Steven Me
Cully, and same vs. Joel Towers, XI
Rich. Law, 424, fouud)that tho "great
er part of the village'' of Anderson was
located on Wads worth laud willed to
the "poor white children" of Mnj. Duu
lap's battalion, Laurens District, for
These were teBt eases, but tho De
fendants got otl'nud held the lands un
der tho plea that they had been in ad
verso possession for twenty years and
tho Trustee^ had slept upon tho rights
of "the poor white children." In tho
above cases tho Defendants claimed
under a Grant. It may be different in
tho present cases and the Defendants
may claim under leases.?Lau reo a Ad

Editor Intelligencer: We arrived
safely in our Xewberry home the. same
day we left Anderson. Our furniture
came in safety, also; only ono small
piece was broken. We were cordially
received by tho members of Smyrna
Church, when we at rived at the
""Manse." Not only by their kind
greetings, but by many substantial fa
vors, also, then and since, they have
made us to feei that our coming In
thpir midst is indeed welcome. Wo
left many friends in AndersoD, and al
ready we are tnado to feel that we have
found many friends hero in our Xew
berry homo. While we are living live
miles'from tho city of Xewberry, our
mail matter is directed there. Wishing

Again the monotony of our quiet
little neighborhood has been broken by
tho merry ring of wedding bolls. Your
scribe had the pleasure of being one of
a party of friends to assemble at the
hospitable home of our esteemed
friends, Itev. and Mrs. lt. G. Martin, on
last Tuesday evening, 17th inst., to
witness tho marriage of their youngest
daughter. Miss Jennie, to Mr. W. M.
Smith, of tho Waco section of our
County. Promptly at 0 o'clock the
lather of the bride in u short, but well
chosen ceremony, pronounced the fatal
words that linked their future desti
nies. The bride was becomingly dress
ed in white, which added very much to
her grace and beauty.
At the conclusion of tho ceremony
the guests were invited to the dining
room, where the hospitality of our host
and hostess shone with all its bright
ness, and we cannot express the pleas
ing sight that met our gaze. Tho long
table was ladened with everything that
heart could wish, where nil spent a very
pleasant half hour.
The bride is very populnr ill this
community, and we regret very much
to see her leave, but Cupid's will, not
ours, be done. The groom is a pro
gressive young farmer of Waco, and is
to be congratulated upon his success in
winning the hand and heart of such a
charming young lady, who will grace
his home with tho dignity of a queon.
Tho health of tho community is good
at present, except Mr. W. L. Bond, who
has been very sick for tho past few
days, but is now convalescent.
Mr. J. L. Morgan, of this place, is
making preparations to leave for Jef
ferson County, Texas, soon after
Christmas. We regret to see him
leave, but commend him to tho good
people wherever he casts his lot.
This community has suffered a groat
ioal at the hands of a band of thieves,
who have been stealing cotton and corn
from mauy of our farmers. Messrs. S. T.
McCuIlough and J. M.Bott's lost about
Jiie thousand pounds of cotton, each
mine time ago, and several others havo
ost smaller amounts. All efforts to
mtch tho rogues have failed so far.
From all appearances Christmas will

Revenue Scrip Case.

ision on a very important case that
tas just come up boforo him, which in
olvcs ths validity of tho famous Blue
tidgo bond scrip and is of speoiil in
erest to this County, having originated
ero. In 1000 W. H. Lyles, Esq., of
lolambin, returned a tract of land
onsisting of 500 acres in district 11 of
Iiis county. In payment of taxes on
he Bin ne, which amounted to $15.18,
0 offered $13.18 in silver and copper
oins, and for tho other $2 otto red a
ro dollar scrip, demanding no change,
'reosurer Wylie refused to accept the
imo in payment of said taxes, and so
le land was sold under execution,
lie jury to whom the matter was snb
littcd decided that the land was own
1 by W. H. Lyles, that he ottered the
rip in payment, that, the scrip was
sued by the Statu treasurer according

Colnmbia Desk Calendar for 1902.
Tina calendar has been a fixture in
many business offices and homes for
many years, ils great popularity being
largely dite to the thoroughness with
which it serves its purpose as a m?mo
randum device. It is a most conven
ient repository o? things to bo remem
bered nnd at the same time possesses
all the requisite features of an almanac
for everyday use. The printed part,
ns in former years, largely consists of
voluntary contributions from bicycle
riders of nearly every country in tho
world. The new edition is very hand-1
Homely printed nnd mounted ou a steel
holder, whereby the calendar can bo
hung in any convenient location or
placed at any desired angle on tho
desk. Copies may be obtained by
