Mr. Greer had been ill several we6ks

We are indebted to our good friend,
T. E. McConnell, one of Anderson
County's prosperous and energetic
young farmers, for a liberal sample of
very fine syrup of hip. own production
?in fact, the finest flavored home
made syrap we have ever eaten. Last
spring Mr. McConnell secured one
gallon of seed, which he planted, and
which despite tbe unfavorable Reason b,
yielded him about ninety gallons of
syrup, three hundred and fifty bundles
of excellent fodder and ten or fifteen
bushels of seed. Every farmer who
has tasted the syrup wants some of the
seed, and he will supply all who apply
to him. Every farmer should follow
Mr. McConnell's example and produco
at least enough syrup for his own use.
The Greenville News, of the Oth
iuBt., says : "The Anderson Rifles, of
Anderson, S. C, in charge of Acting
Captain W. P. Nicholson, arrived in
the city Wednesday afternoon for tbe
reunion, returning home yeBterday
afternoon. The Company was about
twenty-five strong and a tine set of
young men they were. Every member
of the Company was on his best be
havior during his stay in Greenville,
and the eutiro body conducted them
selves like gentlemen. The city was
theirs and they had.a good time, ming
ling with the young people of the city
as well as the veterans. R. E. Hen
derson was first Lieutenant and S. T.
Craig, Jr., -second Lieutenant. The
Company was well drilled and pre
sented a creditable appearance."
Mr. S. J. McCully left Monday for
Washington and Annapolis. About
the middle of September next ho will
stand a competitive examination in
Washington for a Second LI ^tenancy
in the regular army. Joe's -riends?
and that includes very nearly the
entire citizenship of Anderson?feel
confident he will win the position.
Few young men possess more sterling,
manly qualities than Joe McCully and
in physique he is a perfect picture.
Hi?, loss from the ranks of the young
people, both in a social and business
way, will be greatly felt. If selected
for the position. Uncle Sam will add to
his brilliant land forces one of the
finest specimens of young Southern
manhood to be found this side of the
Mason and Dixon line.
There is to be a competitive exami
nation at Charleston, Columbia and
Greenville on August 25, 26 and 27 un
der civil service regulations, for the
position of cadet in the United' States
revenue cutter service. The age of
eligibility is from 18 to 25. Cadets
will receive salaries of $500 a year, and
after two yearn will be eligible for
promotion to the rank of third lieuten
ant at a salary of (1,400 a year. The
higher ranks are second lieutenant at
$1,500, first lieutenant at 81,800, and
captain at $2,500. This same examina
tion is to be conducted simultaneously
in all the States and about twelve or
fifteen cadets are to be selected. Some
of Anderson County's bright young
men should make an effort to secure
the position, by going to Greenvilleand
standing the examination. It is a po
sition worth striving for.
The ordinance recently passed grant
ing a franchise to the Anderson Tele
phone Company did not meet the ap
proval of all the people, and an attempt
is being made to have the Council re
consider its action. A petition to this
effect was presented to tbe Council at
a me?.~;ng held Tuesday evening of
last week. By carefully looking into
the matter it will tk> &een that not only
is the Council powerless to change the
Ordinance in any respect, but even an
Act of the Legislature cannot annul it.
The Ordinance is in the strictest sense
a contract between the citizens of An
derson and the Anderson Telephone
Company. In consideration of a clear
ly defined service for a stipulated
chargeon the part of tbe Anderson
Telephone Company, the City of An
derson bas granted certain clearly de
fined privileges, and in view of which
there has already been part performant o
by the Anderson Telephone Company,
to wit: entering into a contract with
the Southern Bell Telephone and Tele
graph Company for the use of their
phones and system, which was con
templated by the Ordinance as passed
and nccepteu by the Telephone Com
pany. So long as there is a complete
performance of the stipulations or this
Ordinance, there are no means, save a
mutual agreement between the par
ties, by which tho contract can be
changed or annulled.
