A Good Town.
Of all the good towns in this good
old State of ours, Sumter excepted,
there is none better than Anderson.
She is alive, progressive, wide-awake,
and ever on tue alert, tor anything to
benefit and advaneo her interests.
Possessed of n splendid citizenship, tho
sons of Anderson never tire of telling
of tho glories of their to strangers and
wayfaring men. They believe in their
town and have abundant faith in its
future. No one can bo with them long
without feeling this, and one cannot
remain in the "Electric City" for any
length of time without admiring its
push, pluck and progressiveness. For
example, last week Anderson had n
Gala Week, likewise tho encampment
of the Third South Carolina Regiment
ovasJLold there at the same time. Tiieae
two events combined to carry to An
derson large crowds of visitors from
all the upcountry and some from oise
wlu-n,. And they all had a good time,
-and ?eft singing the praises of the place
wM?<!\ had provided so liberally tor
r\nmu*'ement and pleasure. Each

kind words ot-deserved commendation
for Anderson will be of great benefit
to that city?n all time to como.-Sum

A Visit to Anderson.
Col. J. I*. Thom KB writing in tho
Stat? of hi? travels through South
Carolina ha? tho following to tay of a
rccont visit to Anderson:
"Leaving the beauty and the chivalry
of this charming city (Greenville) wo
move rapidly to thu goodly town of
Anderson, "tho Electric City," situated
in tho heart ol the Piedmont region ot
South Carolina. The development of
Anderson has been remarkable. The
town and county ure alike nourishing.
The huida of Anderson are fertile.
Tlie publie roads ar? in lino condition,
and wo meet here all the conditions of
a prosperous community, Thero are
cotton mills and oil milis, many diver
sified industries, and thu Anderson
Water, Light and Power company gen
erates 5,000 horse power, enough for the
eity, th? cotton mills and the smaller
industries of the city, generated niue
miles from Anderson nt Portman
Shoals in Seneca river. As to popula
lation, in 18i>0 it was .'3,018; in 1003 it is
0,000, and including the mill population
on tlie outside amounting to 5,400 it
gives over 11,000 to mark the onward
march of Anderson.
"Anderson, it may be added, has an
enterprising chamber of commerce.
"While Anderson ean claim no col

is 1,800 and teachers number 82.

Old Man Brady Killed at Monea Path.
Patrick Brady, known throughout
thu Piedmont section ns Old Man
H ra dy. the Irish peddler, was killed by
a freight train at linnea Path yester
day morning at 0 o'clock. He was
crossing thu track und wai on his way
to the public square from his boarding
house, when he was run down and
butchered. His body was terribly
mangled. When tho train hit him, tho
blow was such that tho freight car waa
thrown off tho track and while making
an investigation a member.of thu crew
found tho bloody remains of the ped
Brady belonged to that class of wan
dering merchants which is rapidly
passing away. Ho carno to Greenville
years ago, making this his headquar
ters, while hu took frequent trips into
thu country to soil his wares. He wau
pluin, but ho was honest and upright,
and he was known by hundreds and
hundreds of thu poor people living in
Greenville County. Scores had a
speaking acquaintance with him! but
few know his name-they all spoke
of him as Old Man Brady. About 1890
bu came to this city to open a store,
and remained in that business for two
year.?, when he went back to the road.
He settled at Honea Path finally,
making that town his headquarters.
It is generally believed that Brady
had saved'a small fortune. After his
body was picked np yesterday morning
it was found that hu bad $210.85 con
cealed on his porson, and that was
really a drop in the bucket of his
wealth, if common report is to be ac
cepted as true. With the McIntyre
brothers, ho made his homo at Honea
Path, and they worked together.
A freight train was shifting at tho
station when Brady reached the track.
As the locomotive was reversed, the
old man was bit by a freight car, with
Bach force, as stated above, that the
train waa derailed. According to the
Honea Path correspondent of The
Greenville News, who reported the ac
cident, no blame can be attached to
tho train crew. The body was dragged
about thirty yards. There were no
witnesses, and no ono to warn Brady
of his danger.-Greenville News, 18th
The deceased was an old Confeder
ate Veteran, having served his adopt
ed State faithfully through tho Civil
War as a member of the Manning
