THE CONFEDERATE REUNION
An old soldier, who attended the

heard to renark that if lie had
known there were as many vonifeder.

there will be complaint is to the
handling of them, especially when it
is undertaken to ftirnish anything
free. Columbia is really the best
plaeo inl this state in which to hold
these feinious. It is centrally locat
el and has an excellent system of
streel ears, and beig the capitol ot,
the state, it gives a great many peO

We piblish in another column
somethilng of the work that was done
sMilt, forty or ty years ago onl the
proiposed road through the m11ou1ntailns
from Walhalla to Toiessee. It was
sgestedii that when Col. Anirews he
ca ite pweside-tl o f th ie liige

phtlett thi. work. it was .)n this road
that CoL. .\ndrews as a boy hegan
his work in the railroad service. and
it w.ls alo un1derst11od that it was
his ambition to see this road comlilet

We have made reference to' this

that tihe Spatanhuirg correspondents

alluuiri has grown ill population a
g-reat deal slice the c'lose of the war,
and many cotton mills have been
built. and no doubt coifederate sold
iers have moved inl from other coun
ties and from North Carolina, but it
hardly seems creditable that they i
should have increased the pension
roll as much as it now appears to be. ,
In other words, while Newberry
