munity. Thus they came from every corner of the county. Capt.
William Whitney from Maybinton, and others, who lived out a dis
tance, filled up the column.
Col. Thomas J. Lipscomb was made chief marshal of the day, with
a quota of aids to assist him. Capt. Dickert was in command of
the moving column. Judge Y. J. Pope was in command of a select
number bf envoys, to meet Hampton and the campaign party, at the
railroad station, and to escort them to Cline's Grove, where the
exercises were to take place, and the dinner served.
When the companies were all formally lined up, the column
moved out into the street leading towards Main on by the public
square, thence by the depot and on to the rallying ground, two
abreast. It was estimated that there were one thousand in line,
the head of the column being half way down the street towards the
railroad when the last was leaving the college campus. Along the
street in the line of march was one vast crowding jostling crowd
of humanity-men, women and children waving handkerchiefs and
banners, giving the riders one grand ovation from start to finish.
There were a sprinkling of negroes to be seen, but they stood in
mute wonder and awe. The men waved their hats and yelled
with joy and excitement, as they rode along, hailing and saluting
those they chanced to recognize by the wayside. Newberry was
ablaze with excitement and enthusiasm, and the famous rebel yell,
with which the old soldiers in line, were so familiar, gave courage
and hope to the red shirt riders as well to the whole populace.
Hampton and his campaign party were already on the speaker's
stand when the hee.d of the column arrived. Every company riding
by the grand old chieftain and redeemer of South Carolina, giving
him a rousing cheer, as they rode by in grand rev'iew.
When Hampton rose to speak, pen fails to do justice to the scene.
Every hat went in the air, every throat was giving way to the wild
est yells, ladies clapped their hands and waved their handkerchiefs,
and it was minutes before- order was established. The general,
followed 'by his running mate, Judge Simpson, gave rousing
speeches, as did the others on the ticket, giving the people hope and
comfort, telling them as if in prophetic visions, that the time was
near at hand for their enthraldom to cease, that South Carolina
.would soon be free, and the people come into their own again.
Thus ended the grandest and most enthusiastic rallying day ever
known in the history of the county. After the election all returned
to their homes to take up the broken threads of their personal af
* fairs, and to find the Democrats in power, and one illustrious Hamp
ton at the head of the State government.
These historical papers were written for the Drayton Rutherford
Chapter by Col. D. A. Dickert, of Newberry, S. C., at the request of
the chapter historian. .Mrs. J. A. Burton.

towns in its class, and therefore I will
let my pencil go off sometimes, for I
just can't hold it, but my mouth, it
never goes off, except after a little
corn bread and bacon to keep the body
together. But I congratulate the may
or and city council on the fact that
some public improvements are to be
gin soon. I would not hurt the feel
ings of any one and neither would I
do anything to retard the progress of
the plans which city council have for
the public improviements about to be
undertaken. And any others that may
be hibernating in the municipal brain.
I have been trying to keep up with
the actions of our legislature but it
has been beyond my ken. I noticed I
in a paper the other day that the leg-I
islature was still appointing investi
gating committees. And then invest;
gating committees will have to be ap
pointed to investigate these and there
will be no end to the chain. And then
they are going to build warehouses
for the farmers and I reckon next
they will provide superintendents for
the farms and the whole thing will be
under government supervi'sion and we
will all be happy. There is one thing
that has been overlooked, and that is
a commissioner to supervise the press
of the State and to see that the lit
erary pabulum which is dosed out
every day does not contain any bac
teria and germs that are detrimental
to the intellectual and moral health'
and development of the people. It is
as important as the body. In fact
they tell us it id more important to
give the mind and soul the proper
nourishment than it is to be so mind
ful of the body. But maybe I don't

"Paid in FulL"
The Greenville News had the follow
ing regarding "Paid in Full," attrac
tion that is to make its appearance in
the Newberry opera house the even
ning of the 13th instant:
"Paid in Full" was the attraction
that drew a large and fashionable au
dience to the Grand last night, and so
pleased was Manager Whitmire that
he immediately booked the attraction
for a return date for Wednesday ma
tinee and night, which he was able to
do owing to an open date in the itin
erary of the company. The produc
tion as a whole was one .of merit and*
deserves all the good things that have,
been said about this great play.
The cast is a very strong one, and*
each member deservies great credit for
the able manner in which the various
parts were portrayed. In fact, if in
the hands of less ca.pable people, thep
play, which is a strong one in itself, i
would have failed to please as it did. '
The story of the play is well known
to most all theatregoers throughout, S
the country, having been witnessed by
no less than three million people inJ
the last two years from Canada to
Frisco-a record never reached by any a
similar play in the history of the mod -
ern drama. Gloria Gallup and Emmag
Brooks, thie young wife, gave a sweetI
womanly portrayal of that character,
and showed that she has made a care
ful study of a very difficult part, and
in the great scene in the third act in A
Capt. Williams' den, where she goes
to visit him late at night to save her
husband from jail and her family
from disgrace, she showed surprising C
strength. Allen Lee deserves special
mention for his artistic rendering of a
the good natured Jimsy Smith, his per- s
formance being equal to the original. L
C. Nick Stark, as the gruff old Capt. jE
Williams, 'was excellent, as was also Js
