RAILROAD TO SALUDA.
People of Saluda Are Determined to
Have It and it Ought To Be
Brought by Newberry
Saluda has determined to have a
railroad. So says a citizen - of the
town has been in Newberry the past
several days. The road which is de
sired and which he says Saluda is go
ing to have in the very- near ftlture.
will tap the C.. C. & A., the-branch of
the Southern between Columbia and
Augusta. somewhere about Wards
of Johnston, and from that point will
be built to Saluda. From Saluda it
will be carried either to Newberry or
to Greenwood. he says. There are
many reasons why Newberry should
bestir herself in encouraging the
building of the road. and there is
every reason why she should see to
it that when the road is built it is
brought to -Newberry.
"Saluda is a rich farming country,"
said the gentleman from Saluda. "en

in distance from thirteen to twenty

some time in Saluda recently looking
over the route.
"The town has already voted bonds
to the amount of $t2.ooo and has
raised $8.ooo in private subscriptions.
making $20.ooo Saluda will give for
the aid of the railroad. This amouint
she will give now, and she will give
much more than that." he concluded.
Newberry is now enjoying a large
trade from the people of Saluda. A
railroad built from Saluda to any
other point than Newberry meams.

There are many other pressing rea
sons why a railroad from Saluda
should be brought to Newberry.
From the standpoint of Saluda. New
berry is the most logical point to
which to run the road, and whether
or not Newberry will secure it de
pends upon Newberry's efforts. It
is going to be built soon or latter.

BIG DAY AT SMYRNA.
Children's Day Exercises-Address
By Dr. W. E. Pelham.
\t Smvrna church. P)resbyerian. a
very beautiful service was held on
Sunday for foreign missions. The
exercises consisted of responsive read
ing. singing of hymns, recitations by
children, and addresses. In the
morning Dr. W. E. Pelham address
ed the large'cn.gregation o. the, sub
ject. "Foreign Migsions." Dr. Pelham
is one of the most active mission
workers in the south. and handled his
subject in a way that showed he was
fully acquainted with his ground.
Many interesting facts were brought
out in the course of the address.
The offering was for the building *
of a new boat; t-he Lapsley. which is
to cost the sum of $25,ooo; the first
Lapsley boat for the Congo river
having met with disaster by capsizing
last fall. causing the drowning of
Rev. H. C. Slaymaker and twenty
three native Christian workers. The
church has proceeds to construct -a
strong and more costly boat, and it
is proposed to pay for it by offerings
on Children's day.
In the afternoon Dr. Pelham ad
dressed the Sunday School on "The
Story of the Lapsley." The offering
by the children approximated fifteen
dollars, a very creditable showing.
The Lapsley boat is named after Rev.
R. A. Lapsley. '.o, when a mission
ary a few years ago, laid down his
life while engaged in the work. He
was a son of Judge Lapsley, of Ala
