people till along the lin have been
working, seems now to be assured.

Huni'pouches, but it has been decided
to put a messenger on these trains.
The Columbia Record of Wednesday
Mr. L. M. Therrell, tile superintend
ent of railway mail service for this
territory, and Mr.'J. A. Meets, the as
sistant siperintendent, were in Colum
bia yesterday in conference with
Mr. W. G. ClAilds, president of the Co
hunbia, Newberry and Laurens rail
road, relative to the establishment of
an additional mail service between
Columbia and Laurens over this route,
about which a good deal has been said
It was decided to put tile desired
servi(e in operation with a messenger
on trains No. 21 and No. 22, which is
what was asked for by the people of
Laurens and intermediate points. This
mail will leave Laurens at 7 a. m.,
arriving- inl Columbia at 10.30 a. m.,
and returning will leave at 5.20 p. i.,
arriving in Laurens at 9 p. mi.
It was not iln tile power of Mir Ther
rell to grant compensation to the rail
road for this service, but Mr. Childs
will apply to the second assistant
postmaster general, asking that com
pensation he allowed. If this is re
llsed by tle postoffice aut horities,
the inail will be handled by the Co
h11nnhia, Newberry and Laurens rail
road without compensationi until the
expiration of its present contract ill
.JflY. 1908, two years t'roi now. The
establishillelnt ot' this plan will I not

Laurens will have three mails ill
and the same number out of her gates
every day except Sunday, instead of
only one a few weeks ago.
