competition will be strong, and that he will

Our Trip to Sumnimerton.
DEAR TIEs:-Last Wednesday night we
left Manning on our way to Summerton, to
attend the Sumter District Conference. Af
ter a few minutes ride in the Cincinnati
sleeper we reached Foreston, where we
spent the night with a relative. The next
morning we had a short chat at the depot
with the moving spirit of Foreston, him
who is always in the van in every progres
sive movement, Col. R. R. Hudgins. He
was specially bouyant about his brag cotton,
and says he fears no one in the State, as he
is confident lie will gather more cotton from
a ten-acre field he has, than any other far
mer in the State will gather from a field of
Col. Iudgins is an old man in years, but
in energy and work, in seeking to give
pleasure to others, in church matters--in
everything, he is the leader. He is a man
who loves to see his town improving, and
who stands ready at all times to give his
money and influence for the benefit of his
The Atlantic Coast Line has just com
pleted a handsome depot at Foreston, and
no longer can complaints be made on this
line. The depot is conveniently situated
in the centre of the town.
Leaving Foreston about eight o'clock
Thursday morning, we took a back-track to
Wilsons, to connect with the Wilson &
Summerton train. Wilsons is about four
miles from Foreston and five from Man
ning. Once this was a busy, buzzing place,
but since Mr. Thomas Wilson has moved
away his saw and planing mills, it has a
very deserted appearance. Our young
friend, Walter Burgess, has charge of the
post office, telegraph office, express office,
passenger and freight depots for the two
railroads, and we think he also has charge
of the only store in the place. fle manages
to do all this work by himself, and yet occa
sionally has a little spare time on his hands.
There is a great change in the business of
After a delay of an hour at Wilsons the
train for Summerton was ready to start.
Our train consisted of an engine, a combi
nation passenger and baggage car, and two
freight cars. The passenger ear was sand
witched between the freight cars; the en
gine was in front but was turned backwards,
and so ran the entire distance.
About nine o'clock the whistle sounded
and the train started. Capt. Stutts, a very
polite and accommodating gentleman,
occupied the double position of engineer
and conductor. As soon as the train started
the train hands got hold of a watermelon,
and seemingly enjoyed greatly the luscious
fruit, but not being able to consume all of
it they rested the remainder quietly on one
of the passenger seats until they had safely
passed Jordan, when they in short order
consumed the residue.
Time was no object with us, so it seemed
as if the time in running to Jordan was
comparatively short. This place is much
larger than we expected to find, and from
the railroad depot it presents the appear
ance of a growing and prosperous little
The next station was Davis, where Mr. C.
M. Davis holds sway. He has a large saw
mill, a store, and other enterprises. There
are signs of much activity here. At this
place we left our rear freight car standing
on the main line. As there is only one
train on this road, of course there was no
danger of an accident resulting therefrom.
When about two miles from Summerton
our dignifid old engine began to snort and
blow as if there was something the matter,
but as the train hands paid little attention
to these signals we gave it no thought, but
when we had crossed Taw Caw, and struck
an up grade, our train stopped. Then we
learned that for nearly a mile the train had
been running by itself, and the old engine
had been trying to keep out of the way. The
coupling had pulled oat of the engine's.
head, -and as the cars were on a down-grade,
they had run along by the force of gravity.
It was a little dangerous, but we didn't
know it until the danger was over, and then
no harm had been done. We were only
about half a mile from Summerton, but the
sun was hot, with no shade trees along the
track. After a delay of a quarter of an hour,
Capt. Stutts kindly consented to take us all
on his engine. In a few minutes the hu
man freight and baggage were transferred
to the engine, and the run was pleasantly
made. The passengers consisted of Mrs.
Dr. Brockinton and her two children, of
Manning; Miss Tyson Coinyers, of Foreston;
Mr. Haley, of Jordan; and ourself.
The Summertonl railroad is run on the
economic plan, and wve are told is making
money. There is little or no grading on the
road, the surface being comparatively level,
with little undulation, and the track is laid
on the surface without grading. There arc
no wood'racks or water tanks. When the
wood gives out, the crew of the train take
their axes and in a reasonably short time,
say an hour, they convert an old dead pine
tree into a cord of wood, and then carry it
in their arms to the engine, where it is
dumped into the tender. When the water
gets low, a hose sufficiently long is put into
a convenient and neighooring diteh, with
the water five or six inches deep, and by
mear-s of a pump on the engine the water
is transferred to the resovoir on the engine.
Of course tadpoles and small frogs are also
carried into the resovoir and from thence
into the boiler of the engine, where they as
sist in making steam. It takes a half hour,
probably, to fill the resovoir in this way,
but then the crew and passengers can
amuse themselves in the meantime by
shooting rabbits, fighting mosquitoes, or
picking blackinrries. If the resovoir gets
full before the party gets back, it simply
runs over and out upon the ground, with
out doing any harm.
The engine is never turned around on
this road, but pulls the train back-wards to
Summerton and forwards to Wilsons. The
road is poorly equipped, and the train runs
about eight miles to the hour, but, withal,
it is a pleasant route, and the conductor is
an agreeable person. The train on this
trip made extra good speed, and ran the
sixteen miles in about an hour and three
quarters. WVe got full value received for
the fifty cents we paid for the ride, and en
joyed it much.
Summerton is one of the best and most
charming places in the world. We always
enjoy a visit there, and never before have
we spent a four days' visit more pleasantly
than last week in Sumimerton. Dr. B. M.
Badger was our host, and everything in and
about his house gives evidence of the enl
tured refinement of himself and wife.
Their large front yard is filled with choice,
rare, and beautiful flowers and plants, and
the fruit orchard contains a variety of fruits.
In no respi et did the doctor and his wife
fail to make their guests enjoy themselves.
But Summerton is noted for its hospitality,
and our great regret was that we could not
get around more, thongh we were on the go
all the time.
We have never seen a better District Con
ference. Rev. E. T. Hodges, presiding el
der, made a better president than a bishop
would have done, and he despatched busi
ness so rapidly and satisfactorily that at the
close of the Saturday morning's service the
conference was ready for adjournment. The
spirit of brotherly love p~ervadced the meet
ing, and not a jar occurred durin. the ses
sion. T1he preaching and speaking was
among the best we ever listened to. The
sermon Thursday morning, by Dr. 11. N.
Wells, of Charleston, but a native of Sum
merton section. wvas a nmast'rly production.
Friday night R1ev. J. C. Kilgo, financial
agent of Wofford college, made an ednea
tional speeh, a fine erfit, in which his wit
and deep learning kept the peop~lle keenly
interested for more than an hour, while he
drove home a number of stubborn facts in
favor of an intelligent relhgion. For a man
to be a well-rounded Christian he must cul
tivate, not only the heart, but the head and;
the body. His appeal for Wolford resulted
in a collection of about S150. Sunday night

the building was ocenpied, and his sermon
on the fatherhood of God was full of deep
Sunday morning Rev. W. D. Kirkland,
1). D., proac(d in the Methodist church,
Rev. Samuel Lander, in the Baptist church,
and Rev. J. Marion Rodgers, in the Pres
byterian church. We heard Dr. Kirkland's,
and the crowded church felt that the ser
mon was too short, though it occupied sev
enty minutes in delivery. The preaching
and the speaking -.t the conference was con
siderably above the average, and the Sum
merton District Conference may be set down
as the best ever held in the district. The re
ports of the preachers were in the main en
Crops around Sumnierton are excellent,
and the people feel satislie.l. We saw some
beautiful corn and colton crops. This Suni
nrton land is probably the best farming
lands in the State. All that is needed is
proper cultivation. The people around
hero are prosperous, because they raise
their own provisions.
After church Sunday night, we accepted
a seat with Messrs. Horton Rigby and Char
ley Lesesne, and after a pleasant ride of
three hours, we arrived home at two o'clock
in the morning. S. A. N.
