Death of a Popular Citizen.
. It is our ead duty this week to chron
icle the death of another one of Ander
son County's most excellent and highly
esteemed citizens in the person of Col.

after a long affliction v itu Bright's
Col. Robinson was about 00 years of
age, and was born, reared and always
lived in the section where he died. In
his young manhqpd he taught school
for several years, but spent hi o life on
the farm and was a successful and
energetio farmer. At the beginning
of the Civil war he offered his services
to his State and served through the
war in Capt. J. A. Cowan'a Company,
20th South Carolina Regiment. From
hiB yonng manhood he took an active
and leading part in the welfare of his
immediate section and County, and
was ever ready to do his duty as a good
citizen in any work assigned him. A
few years after the war he was appoint
ed a Trial Jastice in Martin township,
and served in this office most efficient
ly for a number of years. In 1800 he
was elected to the Legislature and ser
ved his County moat faithfully for sev
eral terms. When Gov. lingo od was

member of his staff with the rank of1
Col. Robinson possessed a most gen
ial, sociable disposition, and made a
friend of ov cry acquaintance. Since
his boyhood he had been a devoted
member o? the Methodist Church, and
exerted a great iniluonco for good in
his wide circle of friends and acquain
tances. In hiB immediate community
he will be greatly missed and his place
will be hard to fill.
Besides his devoted wife, one son
and a daughter the deceased IB surviv
ed by his venerable mother and three
brothers, who have the sympathy of
their many friends in their sore be

tho consolation of knowing that their
loved one has gone to reap the rewards
of a well spent life.

A Letter from the Far West.
Sa?brd.. Arizona, March 20.
Dear Tn telligencer:-Thia has boen a
hard winter iii Arizona for those who
came here for the benelitof tho climate
to their health. Only two came from
Anderson County, so far aa ? know,
Mesera. Russell and Palmer, and one
from Oconec, James C. Hull, of West
minster. All tlireo have been carried
back for burial. I sympathize with
the bereaved in each case.
My health waa greatly improved un
til lu grippe attacked me about the lat
ol' February. That Bet me back und
reduced my weight ten pounds, but I
have recovered from tbe grippe and
regained part of my loat weight, and
my cough seems to be almost, well. I
rarely cough, and my lunga feel well.
It is and to seo thc disappointment of
Borne Mormon converts who ure brought
here. A man from Alabama carno
hero with his HOIIB and 10-year-old (
daughter-the wi fe refusing toembruco j
Mormonism and come. A few duya af- '
ter they lauded thu father HUW how he
hud beou imposed upon, nud becume
very dissatisfied. Ile wanted to re
turn to ilia wife, but feared aim would
not receive him. At his requeat I
wrote a letter, telling how repentant
ho waa and how disgusted with Mor
moniam, and asking that he be forgiv
en and tuken back. Tho good wife
scut him money to como back and
bring the daughter, and they returned
and nie happy ut home again, ile
told me II?B wife hud moro Benae than
he iiad, for she could' mn bu duped by
Another family from North Carolina
cunio and found not the laud of "milk
and honey" nor tho joys of religion aa
it lind been told them. They returned
while they had means.
Another family from eastern South
Carolina in here, disgusted with Mor
monism and the couutry. I write these
thinga that our people may. know not
to buliove these men who come to
them in tho "livery of tho saints" to
serve the devil.
We are in great need of a house of
worship, and are making an effort
to raise funds and build. But Chris
tiana are few and our people are poor
and if we succeed iu our efforts to
build we muat bav? aid from Chris
tiana elsewhere. I am constantly re
ceiving letters with one dollar or more
ia them, and our building fund is
growing. I have nuked that one thoua
uod people send mo oue dollar each,
which will secure us a $2,000 house.
Mr. Lawrence Thompson, from Leba
non, writes mo that he wants to be one
of the thousand nud his Sunday School
ciuBB took u collection and so they
sent me $2. Thank them and God for
that. How it makes my heart rejoice
to receive these lettere. 1 "do not get
a cent from it, but if the one thousand
respond, (and I believe they will,) how
happy onr people will be?. Just one
dollar from each person does not hurt
nu v ono and helos the cause here so
much. The M. E. Church (North;
have an adobe building, which is the
only church building in town. I sug
gest and beg that on the Ord day of
April three ii und red people in Ander
son County mail SOO letters with just
one dollar in each. This will not hurt
any of thore who send it and. it will
be a grec t help to ue.
Dour reader, will you be one of the
SOOT May God put it in your heart to
say "yes,r and send the dollar. As
soon as they are received I will write
you another letter, giving the names of
those who send a dollar or more. There
is only one Bnptist Church within CO
miles of hore, except the one here, and
that one is 10 miles down the valley,
worshipping in a school boase with
about a dozen member?. There are
ten or fifteen thousand souls within
fifteen miles of this place, with not
over 150 members of local Churches.
Will tho brethren help us in trying to
give them the gospel ?
I read with much interest and pride
of the improvements in my dear old
native County, than which there io
nene better. Hew gladly would I
return and make my home' there, but
duty and health seem to say I cannot
do so just now. But I long for the
time to come when I can see my way.
clear, both as to duty and health, to be
a citizen of South Carolina.
Reader, remember to mail your let
ter to me on April 3d. Don't forget
the date nor the dollar.
With best wishes to The Intelligen
cor and its readers, I close.

at 7 o'clock p. m., except on Saturdays
and pay-days, from April 1st to Sep

the clerks and would not inconvenience
shoppers, either, but one firm has so
far refused to sign the petitiou. It
would be doing the very handsome
thing to ignore this man. Leave him

ten nip and tuck to get a shipment of
goods through before the invoice is

?ny old way. For instance: yon ar?

it will do you just as much good to
