The directors of the Blue Ridge

It is announced thut after the first of
August the unices of the company will
be located in Anderson. It is not
probable that Col. Andrews himself
will reside here, but all the other offi
cers of the road will make their bornea
in the city. It is n matter of great
satisfaction that this city, which is
the center of the company's business
interests, will become headquarters.

of Col. Andrews as president, is the

surance was given by Col. Andrews
toJ.A. Brock and AfayorJ. M. Sul

conversation with tbeso gentlemen in
Washington. Many have been the
dreams tur this direct connecting line
with the West, but none of the pro

Last year it waa 80,560l.'>78, tbe increase
being tbe good sum of ?1,141,127, or a
gain of a little more than 15 per cent,
Tbe actual increase is, of course, a groat

are those returned by tbe Townabip

Tbe returns of personal property do
not vary materially from tbose of laat

number of dogs returned for taxation,
there being now 3,672 helping to support
tbe burdens of government as against

to tbf school fund, and tbe authorities
are doubtlessly vigilant to oeo that every

Tbe increase in tbe amount of prop

Calhoun was a frequent contributor to
the columns of The Messenger. Mr.
Calhoun wrote a miserable hand, and
for a long time Mr. Russell, though
but a boy, was the only one in tho office
who could read it. Mr. Calbouu took
a great fancy to him, and when be
brought an article to the office would
insist on young Russell reading it to
him in order to be sure that ho under
stood him. Later Mr. Kussell worked
on the old Southern Kose in Charles

Arrested fur Stealing Cloth.
For some time tho Brogon mill
superintendent has suspected that
cloth was being stolen from the pack

Last Monday morning about 4 o'clock
the watchman caught George Agnew,
the negro fireman at the mill, carrying
two bolts of oloth from the packing
room to the engine room, and arrested
him. As the watchman came out of
the building with his prisoner, on his
way to the city, he saw a white man
in a wagon uear by. When the latter
saw the watchman and prisoner he
drove off at a fast gait. The negro
said the white man was Jap Rhodes,
who had agreed to pay him $1.50 a
bolt for the doth. Rhodes has served
a term in the penitentiary and has a
bad reputation. He fled to Georgia
but wss captured, and will be brought
baek to the eity. Several bolts
of tbe cloth were found iu Agnew's
