Anderson is growing right along,

The conference of colored people,
recently held in Atlanta, adopted a
resolution indicating their belief that
the hope of the negro in future lies
in manual labor. This ia true, to a
large extent. There is plenty of work
for the honest black man who is will
ing to do what comes to hand to earn
j> living. The climate of the South
admirably suits the race, and as long
as the negro remains in his proper
place he will have the friendship and
help of the white people, who under
stand him better and will do more for
him than any other people.

Reunion of the Moorehead Family.
Editor Intelligencer: Wo were among
tho fortunate ones who were in attend
ance upon the reunion of tho Moore
head family on the 21st in?t., which
was held at the original homestead of
John Moorehead, the founder of tho
family bearing that honored name,
who removed from Union County, 8.
C., to Pendleton County und settled at
the same place now owned and occu
pied by Mr. Robert Moorehead, a direct
descendant. As we walked around
the, to us, sacred grounds, and looked
up at the walls and roof that more
than 100 years ago afforded shelter and
protection to our ancestors, we tried
to call up their forms and faces in our
mind and to contrast the conditions
that then existed with those in which
we now live?a plain little log house
made from hewn oak logs and chinked
with mud. Only one room, about 18x
20 feet, with a huge rock chimney now
disappeared and the place tilled with a
modern brick chiiuney. A loft or gar
ret overhead, which nerved as company
room or bridal chamber, according to
requirements, a plain slat iloor, but
toned doors with peep-hole windows,
no pane glass and these supplied with
board shutterH, and to all these add the
weather-beaten appearance which l'y?
years of exposure have wrought, and
you have un idea of the woodman's
cabin which was built at that remote
?eriod by a sturdy Irishman named
<aughlin, who afterwards sold the
Jdaco to John Moorehead in 1798, and
?ere the family of himself, his son,
Alexander Moorehead, and the present
occupant, Mr. Hobt. Moorehead, have
continued to live since thai time, and
from this place have gone out those
descendants who now number very
000 persons. One son of Alexander
Moorehead having about 100 descend
ants now living. I met one of the
family who told me that she alone had
The descendants present on this oc
casion numbered 200, who, with about
2.r> or more invited guests and friends',
did splendid tribute to the of
good things that had been prepared for
the dinner, which was served in the
grove near the spring. After the
crowd had done ample justice to the
picnic, Mr. Hobt, Stevenson invited
them to seats nearby, when Kev. H. R.
Murchison. pastor of the Central Pres
byterian Church of Anderson, enter
tained us all with an address, in which
he referred to the great importance of
family reunions and the vast benefits
to be derived by those who would fol
low aft<*r us. His words of advice and
encouragement to the young people
were very timely and well worth re
membering and putting into practice.
During his remarks he was handed by
a member of the family a description
of the original Coat of Arms or the
Moorehead family, which consisted of
a bull's head, a sheaf of oats and a
dagger; and the heraldic meaning of
these emblems were nicely portrayed
and remarked upon* To the Moore
head family they haven peculiar mean
ing, the key to which is contained in
an ancient traditionary incident, which
has been handed down through many
generations and which in very inter
esting to lovers of family heraldry.
Mr. Murchison was followed by Hon.
B. F. Cray ton, the oldest guest present,
who, as a young man, came to Ander
son and engaged in mercantile business
(14 years ago, numbering among his
tlrst friends and customers Mr. Alex
ander Moorehead and Mrs. Rachel
Moorehead, the father and mother of
our host above referred to.
Mr. Cray ton spoke without manu
script, and Haid he never attempted to
use "notes'1 but once, and he could not
read them when he wanted to refer to
them. His remarks were none tho less
ractical, instructive and enjoyable,
ut he will have to tell how the ladies
voted on the stocking knitting ques
tion when he nuked for a show of hands
on that subject.
Altogether, Mr. Editor, the reunion
was a grand success, and the continu
ance of the committee on perpetuating
the meetings seemed to point to re
newed effort in the future along that
Only one member of the family was
reported as haviug died since the last
meeting?Mrs. Emma F. McUlellan?
and her place *on the committee was
tilled by tue appointment of Mrs. Julia
Alice O'Neal, nee Burriss. The Moore
head Coat of Arras was adopted as the
emblem of the family, and the com
mittee were instructed to have designs
prepared for inspection and adoption.
After indulging in a feast of water
melons, eanteloupes and small fruits
the meeting closed; and thus ended
one ot the most enjoyable and enthu
siastic reunions that we hnve ever at
tended. Long live the clan Moore
