Entered at the Postoffice at New

Friday, February 9, 1906.
Congressman Aiken has been as
sured that the free mail delivery in
the. city of Greenwood will start on
-May '. Newberry ought to have free
delivery in the very near future. The
postoffice receipts are now not quite
large enough, but they will probably
reach the $9,000 mark by May, and
they are steadily increasing. In a
short time they will be large enough
for free delivery, and the people of
Newberry ought to cooperate to in
erese the receipts as much as pos
sible. In the meantime it might be
,,well to prepare for it when the op
portunity comes. Marking the streets
and numbering of the houses is a ne
eessary prerequisite, and would in it
self be a great advantage.

Incidents In the Life of Lamar.
'When the late Lucius Quintus Cin
einnatus Lamar of. Alabama was see
~ etary of the interior in the first cab
inet of President Clevelanid heh ad an
Sexperience with a visitor that gave
him a moment of mingled amusement
~~nd ehagrin every time he thought of~
~jt.to the end of his'life.
Mfr. Lamar, who was one of the
.Ea ortliest and most affable men that
ver came to Washington, and who
A.erved for many years in the senate
on the bench of thie United States
supreme court, was greatly bothered
>wenhe entered President Cleve
zad's 'eabinet by the horde of impe
eufs persons from his own state
enwith whom he had no sort of ae
nqatan~ee, who tried to haunt his
. feewith the purpose of attempting
Aborrow. money, obtain office in the
4aeof the then new ei,vil service rules
oask for other favors.
bIn self-defense he had finally to
~gve orders to the black messenger at
his door to admit nobody, even during
the hours of the general daily recep
tion, who did not previously send in a
~ ard.\ When the card bore the name~
of some man he didn 't know, or,
knowing too well, didn 't want to see,,
M r.. Lamar would send out word by
the messenger that he wasn 't in.
SOne day the secretary 's messenger
~appeared before Mr. Lamar and told
him there was an insistent old gen
teman out in the hall who refused to
end iin a card, but stated that he
nerely wanted to make the secretary
a little friendly visit. The secretary
was firm. The visitor would have to
send in a card and niame his business.
The visitor told the messenger that
he only wanted to see Mr. Lamar
~~about a little claim he had before con
;gress for cotton destroyed by Federal
troops during the eivil war. Claimants
of this kind were the bane of Mr. La
mar's life. Mr. Lamar sent out word
by the messenger that he was out.
Them esesnger went out and told
the visitor that the secretary had left
the building. The visitor was a neat
looking old gentleman in black clothes
with a long white beard. He smiled
at the messenger's statement.
'Well,'" he said, with twinkling
eye, "Ah reckon there'll be no ob.
ection if Ah sit heahi and wait till the
se-etahy retuhns," and lie sat down
in the black messenger's chair.
n Thm essenger went in.-after a while
and told Mr. Lamar that the old gen
tleman from Alabama, who refused to
give his name, was still sitting out
in the hall and "actin' right patient,
suh,' as the black messenger express
Mr. Lamar couldn't help the pa
tience part of it. He couldn't be seen
by strangers with cotton claims any
When the ser:retary went out to
luncheon there was the old Alabama
man sitting in the messenger's chair.
Mr. Lamar nodded to him. The old
man nodded back, apparently without
recognizing the secretary.
The next day the old man was back
again during the forenoon. Again the
secretary refused to see him. Again
the old man. on being told that the
secretary was out, reckoned that he'd
sitd own and wait; and wait he did
for several -hours. And when the sec
retary passed out of the office and in
again he nodded to the old man, who
nodded back as if to a stranger.
This went on for six days. On the
sixth day Mr. Lamar was passing out
of his office for his luncheon when the
old man rose from his chair, stretch
ed out his hand to the courtly secre
"Loosh, yo' certuhnly are losing
yo' memory and getting old a heap
fastuh than Ah am. And yo' don't
even know me yet? Loosh!"
The secretary of the interior looked
at the old man keenly, and then with
two strides he had him by both hands.
They had been boys and law students
together, and the old visitor was one
of the most prosperous and inuential
men in the state of Alabama.
He had simply been "waitin' fo'
Loosh to recognize him," but the see
retary had been unable to do it on ac
count of the old gentleman's newly
grown long beard, and so, rather filled
with the humor of the situation until
it became monotonous, he had been
cooling his heels in the messenger's
chair outside the secretary's office for
