A Suggestion lo thc U, ?. C.
% There is somewhere in this city or
county au old cnunon, the history of
which is closely iden tilled with thenis
tory of Anderson for at least two gene
rations, and it is suggested that the
presidents of tho two Chapters of the
U. D. C. of this city take under advise
ment the propriety of hunting up thin
old relic of the past and having it
mounted on granite inside the railing
which (surrounds the monument.
A cursory search into tim history of
this cannon reveals the facta that prior
to 1850it belonged to an artillery com
pany organized from among thost; liv
ing in what is now tho I Jean and .Starr
section of the county. Tho muster
grounds were at Howard's old field,
about ono milo east of where Starr is
now. located. Th? name*-of the officers
were not ascertained, hut it was learn

consisted of copperas breeches ami blue
coats. This Company was organized
more than 70 y?*ars ago-how long be
fore wo did not learn-and t li i -* cannon
was the object around which limy ral
lied, the detonations, of which at bat
talion and general musters, aroused
enthusiasm and kindled afresh their
This company was succeeded by a
company ol 102 men under Major.J.
Thomas Dean, now a resident of the
Calhoun section beyond Helton. Their
uniform consisted ol' black jackets and
white breeches. Their appearance in
<lrill is said to have been magnificent.
This cannon was their only field piece,
but patriotism ran high in those ?lays
and it was quite enough. This old can
non was very dear to them ami they
built a house on the muster grounds for
its safe keeping. At all general mus

berating sounds continued to thrill the
hearts of tho men of this county up to
the eve of the great struggle of 1801-05,
and was made to lend its deep-toned
voice in the celebration of moro than
one Confederate victory.
In 1870 it was brought forth again

The news has just reached Williams
ton ol' a very romantic wedding in
Sherman. Texas, of two of our most
popular young people.
About two weeks ago Messrs. Floyd
Wilson a/id Muston Crymes, two of
Willinmston's best boys, started for
Texas to hunt theil fortunes, A few*
days later their friends here received
letters from them stating that they
were wonderfully pleased with the
"Lone Star Stat? and proposed to set
tle there, insisting that their friends
hero who desired to helter their con
ditions should come and ?io likewise.
One day last week Miss I'.lenora
Prince, one ol the fairest and sweetest
gills, ot' about 1 ? summers, hoarded the
north bound train with the under
standing that she was to go to I "an cas
ter mid spend a few weeks with 'ier
aunt. Soiue days clasped without uny
letter from her lind her people became
somewhat anxious. Hugh ll. Prince,
her lather, took the matter up to-day
with ii view to ascertaining whether
his daughter was sick, or what thu
(rouble was, but before his anxiety
readied the exciting point, the wires
brought tin- news of Miss Elenora's
safe arrival in Sherman Texas, and
staled further that Mr. Euston
Crymes and Miss Prince had been hap
pily married in that city last Friday
Thus it appears that while our fore
fathers have gone to Texas in former
years and with all their energies it lias
taken a life time to accumulate' afor
tune, Mr. thymes has accomplished
this in less than three weeks, which
simply downs all previous records.
Miss Prince is one of the most at
tractive young ladies in the State and
is deservedly popular in Williamston
and wherever she is known. Mr.
Crymes is a fine character, of splendid
habits and pleasing address, being a
member nf one of the most influential
families in out town. The two have
been sweethearts from early childhood
and their union is but the culmination
?d'a long cultivated and cherished af
fection which was intensified by their
separation beyond resistance.
