We note with sorrow that nothing
has been done toward putting Rosemont
in any sort of respectable condition.
It seems to us that it is in
worse up-keep at the present time
than it has been in many years. We
suppose that the owners of lots and
the trustees did not see the suggestion
that a, meeting be called of the
lot owners by the trustees, and that
some sort of an ar-angement be
made by which the driveways could
be made passable, and that the place
might have a thorough cleaning and
be made to look like a civilized people
lived in this communty, or eke
we are sure something would have
been attempted. There are some
lots that are kept beautifully, and
then there are some that are reai
wildernesses, and all the driveways
are in baa condition. We suppose
the people are in too great a hurry

come to all of us when we will have
to halt in the mad rush, and some
one will take what is left and put
us away over here in this wilderness,
and what good' will the rush and
high tension you have kept up be
worth to you. And probably you
will answer, well, what good will a
well kept cemetery be worth then.
And may be you are right.

LITTLE MOUNTAIN REUNION
The Little Mountain reunion was
held at the Mountain on ' A Friday;
It is a great gathering place. For
many years these annual reunions
have been held in the interest of
Newberry college, and since the esC!nw>yv?ATr*l.or>/l

UsUiiSIllIlCH I, Vi oauiiiiciianu \.unv.0v.
the two colleges join in having it a*
a joint reunion. Long before we
had automobiles the people came
from long distances in buggies and
on the train to this annual gathering,
and' now with automobiles distance
does not count so much, especially
when you add the good
roads that are here. Every year
there are those who say it was the
largest gathering they have ever
seen there; and this year the same
thing is said. There was a very
laro-e crowd at the Mountain Fridav.
variously estimated, and all guess
work, of course, but there were autc
.-Retries all the way from the town
back to the mountain and when they
began to leave it looked as if the
stream had no end. And there was
also a special train from Newberry.
Every one seemed to be in a good
\ humor, and apart from the fact that
it advertises the two colleges and
speeches are made on education and
in behalf of the two institutions, it
is a good thing for the people to get
together in these annual reunions.
I could not get away from Newberry
until about eleven o'clock and
did not reach the Mountain until after
12 o'clock, and the crowd was
so great I decided to remain at the
town, and* I enjoyed seeing the
crowds go by and talking to the people
who stopped as they came along.
I had a good dinner with Mr. J. B.
Derrick and then another dinner
with Mr. K. S. Derrick in the depot.
Mr. K. S. Derrick has had a custom
for many years of spreading a long
table in the freight depot and serving
his friends dinner there. The first
time he had President Ohilds of the
\ C. N. & L. to dine with him, and Mr.
Childs made his first and only speech
at this dinner. I also had another invitation
to take dinner with Mr. T!
N. Sbealy, but it came most too soon
after the first dinner and I had to
decline it. There is always plenty
of good things to eat down this side.
I enjoyed meeting friends and
watching the crowd go by. It is a
very remarkable thing in this day
in what a great hurry every one
seems to be. The automobiles can
not speed fast enough, and even the
children seem to be in a great rush;
to get somewhere. I doubt if they'
care for any particular place, just
eo they are going somewhere. I
waited as I thought until the ^reater
portion of tht crowd had gotien under
way toward where they were going,
and especially the ones who
were coming out my way so that I
would avoid the rush, and after great
lines of automobiles had passed on
I made the venture to start, but even
then there was a continuous line
that drove right on by me, and that
is all right- only I sometimes feel
* 1 v _ v ? i: 4. ~
| mat it would oe Dut cvmiuun puiucjness
to admonish you that they were
going to pass by, giving a signal of
some kind. But a great many just
rush by without a sound, except the
noise of the machine as it passes, no
signal in advance. I believe the law
requires the signal, but in his day of
I great hurry to get somewhere there
I is little time to pay any attention to
! law or anything else, except the fact
j that they are going. Everything
'passed me, Ford and all, except one
i Ford, and while I was going 15 to
! 20 miles the hour this car was not
| making that and I asked by signal to
| pass, which was very politely given
by driving to the side of the road,
and not stopping, but going right
along. Even the small boys and girls
who were driving cars were in a hur!
ry. But it was a jolfy good natured
! crowd and I am sure enjoyed by
1 young and old. And many people met
jeach other who would not have met
! but for thr'is reunion, so let the re;
unipn continue to be a feature and'
j an event of the year.

A new stump-burning method employed
in Washington consists of
placing an apparatus agiiinst the
stump with a flue and blowpipe in

blowpipe turns the inside of the
stump into a miass of coals, the fire
eats down into the roots and the entire
stump is consumed at half the
'cost of former methods.

END OLD CUSTOM
Canadian Authorities forbid
Indians of the Pacific Coast Resort to '
Courts in Effort to Retain
One of the most unusual legal hat- j
ties in Canadian history nas just oeen :
staged on the Pacific coast of British '
Columbia, where some forty of the I
Kwakiutl tribe have been convicted of i
holding a "potlatch," and some of them ]
sentenced to two months' imprison- ]
ment. Among those convicted was a
squaw, the first In the history of British
The potlatch is one of the outstanding
events of life among the Indians
of the Pacific const, according :to
Francis Dickie In Popular Mechanics
Magazine, but very little haf been
written of it. and this mostly without
understanding of the deep social sigi
nifictince of the feast, dancing, ceremonies
and gift-giving which are a
I part of the event called potlatch.
The government's placing restraining
laws against the holding of potlatches
was on the ground that Jndiaa*
on these occasions Impoverished
themselves by giving away all their
earthly possessions, often the savings
of years; for when an Indian gave a
potlatch, he did give away everything
he owned to members of his tribe
whom he had inviled. In some cases,
where a very great chief gave a pot,
latrh, people of other tribes, often hundreds
of miles away, were invited: In
the years before the white man came,
; such feasts lasted from ten days to a

partly right in its claim, the potlatch
I presents a paradoxical Situation, for

j muian was ai me same nine acquiring
! a vested interest?the potlatch was
nothing less than a life-insurance pre1
mium, old-ape pension and endowment
[ fund all rolled Into one. In fact, the
i Indians, had in operation a rautual!
benefit system long before the white
After the coming of the white man,
the potlatches changed considerably.
Instead of furs, the Indians began
' gi\ing blankets, flour, guns and ammuj
nition bought from the Hudson's Bay
I company. As time went on they took
full advantage of the wonders of the
j white roan, so in recent years poti
latches have presented one of the most
j Incongruous sights perhaps the world
has ever seen. There came into existence
sewing-machine and furniture
and gramophone potlatches; potlatches
of cooking utensils and clothing; boots
; and clothes; frequently furs and some
' other articles. But the chief jpoflatches
in recent times have been
gramophone, furniture and utensils.
The writer has been fortunate in obtaining
the most recent photos of what
may be perhaps the last potlatches
ever held. These photos also show the
march of the wild men to the great
Should the potlatches be stopped
forever it is hard to foretell what will
be the effect on the Indians. It is a
fact that quite aside from the vested
interest acquired by giving a potlatch,
i the giving of such gave the giver immense
prestige. It was the Highest
peak of social ambition for a coast Indian,
striven for as eagerly as a nou,
veau riche trying to break Into New
York's "four hundred." Looked at
from this point of view, the taking
away of it may rob the Indians of initiative
and ambition to earn money to

WHIPPING OF GIRL
Council Orders Inquiry?Negro Said
to Have Been Spirited
Greenwood, Aug. 4.?City council
last night ordered an investigation of
the alleged whipping of Irene Fisher,
a negro girl, by three white men
some time ago and instructed the
chief of police and city attorney to
take steps to secure evidence against
the men. The three men charged
with the deed are E. C. Johnson, J.
C. Deal and Claiborne McDowell.
The girl, who was almost beaten to
death, it is alleged, has been spirted
out of the city since the whipping.
' Council authorized the city
i attorney to begin action in higher
! courts, if necessary. The three men
under arrest were released on bail
'about two weeks ago.
It is alleged that they accused the
| negro of taking a ten dollar gold
piece from one of. them and when
!she failed to produce the coin they
|administered the beating with sticks.
! The coin was later found in one of
j the men's pocket6, the girl claims.
Good Old Days
| Anderson Mail.
I "They are seldom ever mentioned
now, but just how the country gets
'along without (the blacksmith shops,
' one of which u^d to be at nearly every
cross road; and the old mills, one
of which used to grind1 away on some
creek in every neighborhood," rej
marked one of Anderson county's
most pleasant old gentlemen who was
a business visitor to the city today,
: "I am unable to figure out. I can
readily see?and.' understand?how
the things the old' blacksmith shop
and the old mill used to supply are
being supplied, how the hardware
stores, how modern milling and merchandising
furnish these things
cheaper, perhaps, than they could?
j but really that is riot what puzzles
me. The blacksmith shop and the
old mill I have in mind were more
than merely a place to have a plow
sharpened or some slight repair
jmade, or to get a turn of corn
ground; they were neighborhood ceniters,
so to speak; places where the
'men of the community met to make
i tax returns, to pay taxes, to vote, to
'discuss politics, and?to play! But
they are all gone now. No more
pitching horse shoes; no more wrestling
and jumping, no more 'fox and
geese,' no more just plain fighting,
j or lifting with a handstick to prove
jvho was the best man. All gone!
