Reminiscences of Rev. Levi Garrison.
Thejwriter ie unable to give tbe date
of Mr. Garrison's entrance into the
South Carolina Conference. He itinera
ted in thiB State when itinerants were
few. Hie cireuit extended from the
mountains to tbe coast. It took six
weeks to make the round of his ap
He was a man of remarkable endow
ments. Extensive education in tb i o'1
backwoods country at that time was
impossible, but with his Bible and
Josephus, whom he could quote with
facility, he ripened himselt into con
siderable attainments. As be rode in
his two-wheeled chair he studied, de
veloping his mind into something re
markable. I beard him one day, with
out pencil or slate, reduce his age to
Providence Church, then and now a
Conference appointment, and situated
near tbe jonction of the Seneca und
Tugaloo rivers, where they form the
Snvannub, was one of his preaching
places. Near that church his borne
was looated. His little cottage was on
tho road leading from Anderson, S. C.,
to Carnesville, Ga. One day the late
Gov. B. F. Perry, passing .that way,
happened to get into conversation with
him, and was so struck with bis mind
power that he tarried with him the
whole day. Immediately afterwards
he went to Greenville, und published
concerning tbe old veteran a whole
page in the Greenville Mountaineer,
of which Perry was then editor. The
community in which be lived waa large
ly Presbyterian, who were very fond
of him. He was con hid- rare of others.

othera preached, lo peached ip the
nfUrrjfrwns, lest, ne ?h 'uid interf?re
with others. He was all unconscious
now be could have interfered. Macy
would have left their own oonrch tu
have heard him.
He was euperannuated before the
Methodist Church made any providion
for the aopport of her worn ont preach
era; bot he did not Buffer for the neets
series of life. His presence at a camp
meeting meant a collection for the
supply of his ne?ds. '
The writer, then a student at David
son, but ht home on a vacation, beard
his lost eermoh. The audience was a
large, promiscuous one. Hie text'was
"What I do thou k no weat not now.
but thon shalt know hereafter."
Among other things, he said: "Some
filings wo do not know. Why God
hould have taken Capers (wno bod
ted a abort time before; not moro than
ten miles from where Garrison was
preaching) and Bascom, and left me, a
poor, weak vessel, I cannot .under
stand. By faith I know it's all right;
God has some duty for me yet to per
form. Perhaps it is tho preaching of
this sermon . According to . the course
of nature, I hoing now eighty years of
age, I shall soon find that dnty and'
discharge it." And straightening hSm
seif up as straight ns he could have
done at twenty, he qnoied: . "Thou
shalt cal), and 1 shall answer thee.
Thou wilt Tiave a desire to the work
of tby bands " He closed the exer
cises with the hymn, "O for a closer
walk with God.1; It appeared to the
writer much like prophecy, for Sn just

Evening Train to Upcountry.
Tim railroad commission had a long

assistant general superintendent ot the
Southern liai I way, and H. A. \Vil
liunie, superintendent of the Savannah
dividion, in reference to the schedules
of the passenger traine between Co
lumbia and the up-country. The com
mission ?IBO beoii deluged with com
plaints for aevernl mouths.
A petition was read from citizens of
Hones Path, Bolton, Willianistou and
Pelzer, asking for an additional train
to leave Greenville in tho early morn
ing and to leave Columbia tale in the
afternoon. The railroad ofuVinls stat
ed emphatically that tho traille would
not warrant another train at present,
and this was not considered.
After considerable diecuB-ion this
tentativo agreement was readied: Tho j
schedule of tho train now leaving
Greenville at 0:30 a. m., will bo chang- i
cd GO HH to leave Greenville about 7 a,
m., arriving at Columbia about noon,
leaving Columbia about 1:30 p. m., and
arriving at Greenville about U:40. The

Mr. Morgan and .Supt. Williams both
said tiny would leconiuiend ibis
chango to the general management of
the Southern, and they have no doubt
that tiio chango will bo inado. Tho
recommendation will not bo made,
though, until tho people of tho up
country have had time to consider it,
but tho railroad ollicials aud tho com
mission think this is the best thing
that can be done nt present to servo
the greatest number of people.
Supt. Williams said hu could promise
no improvement in making Schedules
of passenger trains between Columbia
and the upcountry for the next few
weeks, on account of the unprecedent
edly large movement of fertilizers, but
said that aa soon aa the rash is over he
will use efforts to bring about an im
provement. Additional Bide tracks
will be put in on the C. & G. road,
and improvements made on tbe road

Representative Hall, of Anderson
County, was in town for a day or two
last week, and we had the pleasure of
meeting him. On the snbject of the
recent nbiso of the taxpayers his head
is so level on top that quick silver
wouldn't run oil of it. He takes no
sort of stock in the demagogical howl
that so lately broke out in this State
against the tax payers. The appeal
for prejudice of the non-taxpayers
against ibo taxpayer can be understood
or interpreted according to each man's
notions. Our own notion is that it
was based on a show to catch votes or
else on a disposition to attend to
other people's bunin ess, The veriest
ideal in the State of South Carolina ia
obliged to know noder whatever
assessment the property holdere must
pay the fiddler. .
Those who pay no taxes are not par
ticularly interested, and as far aa we
are informed, they have taken no stock
in the abu ?io of taxpayers.
Mr. Hall thinks if two men own land
of equal value, and one of them im
proves his farm, while the other allows
hie farm to go to waste, that the best
farmer should bu punished by an extra
assessment over and above that of his
improvident neighbor. And he is
right. The Legislature did right in
sotting down hard on the would-be
persecution of good and thrifty citi
zens. To raise the taxes of the thrifty
is to place a jponalty on thrift and to
offer a reward for triflingnesa.-Abbe
