thos ia to br. round in the well kapt Ceme

grows out of tue obsorvnnco of curtain
days sot upar' for general remembrance
olid honoriog of tho dead! How Bad thc

Tho beautiful and appropriate diatom,
custom of remembering tho dead by set
ting apart a day of special observance is
rapidly growing iu favor. In those places
where Buch dnys have hecu established,
tho custom- may first hnvo boon regarded
an aa innovation, Ihcu with apprehension

by feelings of respect, rcvcrcnco and ditty,

Happenings Amone the People In This
A TRIP TU CHERAW.
Mr. Editor-I want to try and see
if I cnn write up a trip from Brights?
ville to Cheraw, and if I am success
ful, I will perhaps venturo again and
write up my St Louis trip wheo we
My trip to Cheraw was a grand one
tu me, I never have io all my life
?pt>nt a moro pleasant day than I
spent on May 5 1994. In company
with my better half, we started by ]
private conveyance via Easterling's
mill to Cheraw. My dear little wife
planned tho trip, as you know all good
women do. They are always the holm
to everything pertaining to happiness,
peaco and joy. Well I must sa/ this
trip through the country was a hap
py one for, me and the madam. We
were like two little children you have
eeen playing in a brook of rippling
wuter, perfectly carried away with
the beauty thereof. We were perfect
ly delighted with the seeuery, and the
extensive fields of cotton nnd corn a
loug the way as wo sped along like a
top, which waa very refreshing, as we
were carried through the balmy breeze
by a pair of "Cleveland Bays" at the
rate of 1 mile per 5 minutes. The
hordes felt good, so did the driver and
thc madam. We all kuew that there
was Bomethiog nwaitiug us over the
river There wasn't but one little
trouble that confronted us on our trip,
and that didn't last hut a few mo
ments. Wo thought we heard the
train coming through the River
swamp, but it turned out only imag
ination on ray part. I saw uo much
cord wood close to the railroad the
thought of the traio came nest. I
jumped out ran around to my horses
heads aud said to my dear little wife.
"Now Annie hold tight to the reins,
perhaps we both can hold thom." I
noticed the madam was nearly dying
laughing, I said, "Well wife what on
earth are you so tickled about, I see
nothing to he killiug myself laughing
about and the train comiog loo." So
when I said that, I noticed her head
droj) in front-the hat she wore hid her
lace. I thought now I played thuu
dor. I had perhaps hurt her feelings
by speaking thus. So I noticed her
head raise, until I could see her face,
and it was stilll aglow.
At last she caught her breath be
tween the spells ot laughter nnd said
"Why, Ebb, there isn't auy train
coming, that is only a negro shack
that you see that smoke coming out
nf. ? Raid "Well. I am the bigBe?l
fool in the world.'' So she commenced
laughiug, and said, "Why old man
don't say that, fur I have seen lots
bigger ones than you are. "Well. ?
said I, ''Look here, Annie, we must
make a compromise of this now, if
you won't tell the Colonel and your
sister to-day I will get you a pound ot
chocolate candy and a dozon bananas,
ves, and '1 dozen apples, yes, and some
chewing gum, yes, and that other I
told you I wanted you to get for rae
hefotc we left home '' She Baid, yes,
..it ?o,, ,v;u rr? -" ?? . T .*. *
her son F, B. Gibson, Jr. ot Gibson, N.
C., met her sister Mrs E W, Goodwin
and husband at Col, C. F. Moore's in
Cheraw on the 5th, and all spent a most
l lie Colonel and family have a beau
tilul nome on one of the prettiest streets
in the city, and is surrounded with all
thc comtorts and luxeries of life that
heart can wish for. A beautitul man-,
sion two stories high, with tiie latest
styles ol the finest furniture to decorate
thu inside, while the outside is painted
in a rich cream, trimmed in a dark
shade ol mahogony, with a .'tish pond'
on the top, as the old darkey said when
he told me where the Colonel lived,
"yes, sir, boss, the Colonel lives rite on
dis here street i% the left side corner,
cream color, trim in red, wid de fish
pond rite on de ?op sir; yes, sir bose,
rite dar you lind de Colonel Moore.''
Well. 1 do know one thing. I almost
telt like yelling right there in the city.
I felt so happy to think I was once lost,
but now had found. I and the madam
both were begining to feel like we would
like to lind the Colonel's house. After
driving over all the western part of the
city?-up one street and down the other
for one hour. At last I said "Well Ann,
I hate to have to incmire, but I think I
will." You see i had gotten almost out
of heart, thinking the darkey had mis.
informed me perhaps I looked for the
lish pond on every house, but could not
see a house of the description the old ne
gro had given me. So I turned to my
lett on Third Avenue and we saw the
Colonel crossing the same street with
a young man in the buggy witl him.
"Hello, there Colonel,.' said I, as we
t'irned a block to the left. "Hello, squire,
he replied, we were just going down to
meet you. We looked tor you all to come
on the train Sister and Frank has just
arrived." ' Well, yes, we did intend
coming over witii sister and Frank, but
wc found out we would be late in get
ting back hom? to-night, so I phoned
i sister we would come through the corni
\\ ell, squire, i am so glad you all will
bc with us to-day. Well, Colonel, you
are no gladder than we are, I assure you.
Well, come, drive up here is where we
live. Come here, John, take these hors
es. Come right in squire, you and sis?
ter Annie, and make yourselves com?
for ta hie.
Well, here we are all on time. Well,
Annie, you started quite early-it is on
Iv hallpast o yes, we started at 6 and
have enjoyed our ride, I have a good
one on Ebb
"Now, rats, lookout, hold up there
Annie, you remember what you pom
mised me " Well. I will have to lei him
oil tIiis time. Thanks; All be seated.
Miss Mamie brought around the refresh
ments which were much appreciated,
and little Ernestine the oranges, and
M ister Wallace the ice water, all of
which were very relreshing. mentally
and physically to all.
After a pleasant conversation of 3 and
a half hours in this happy home the din
ncr bell chimed out that dinner was a?
waiting us. The Colonel and wile arose
and escorted us out. On entering the
100m I discovered a 12 foot table that
seemed to be heavily ladened with every
thing that heart could wish lor. The
Colonel winked atme, and said "squire;
1 assented with an imbarresed voice,
and asked the good Lord to bless us,
and prepare us for such an occasion as
this; I do believe my prayers were
mswered, for I believe I got my reason
able portion. I did want to go the
rounds, but, there is one thing you must
do when ever you go to see Colonel
Moore-You must eat. The iood is - so
tempting a fellow will make li i ms eli sick,
sure, it ne eats all the Colonel insists.
I never want any supper alter spending
the day with the Colonel.
We were pleased with our visit
through tne town ot Cheraw. The won
dcrlul changes in ten years! It is last
building up, and is becoming quite an
enterprising place, with its machine
shops. Chair Factory, Spoke and hand
le factory. Fruit crate factory, and
others ot equeal interest, that I did not
visit tor want of time. The people whom
I met seem to be triendly and hospita
ble. I met my old friend Graham Math
eson, in the bonk. He was iookiug well
Also met a Mr. Duvall. Met Hon W. ?.
Evans also, and came back through his
plantation. He has a magnificent borne,
out from the Uiver 2} miles, booting
the road on a large high ridge. Front
view lawn with lotty oaks. Kims and
Hackberry, wite broad acres plumed in
cotton where tobacco was last year.
The stands ot cotton all along the up
per road were good. The new road
will be a great help to all the upper
Marlboro section and Brightsvillc when
completed. After we passed Mrs. Har
ris Odom's we come to thc part ot the
new road that has been cut out and put
in traveling order, which is tine trom
there to Brightsville, except two or three
places needs cutting and working. We
hope the Supervisor will not pass us by
much longer. I think, it lam a judge ol
a good thing when I see it. . We have
not got the prettiest roads in the county.
The road plow has never been in our
town or in our section When have we
had any road working? Road working
is getting to be a thing ot th?, past, it
seems in our section. 1 mean by our
section, lrom Boykin to J. 1). Moore's.
There has never been u, road plow; and
the road between Jonas Brights and
George Billiard's can hardly be passed
by two, it is so narrow, and both sides
stubbed oil il) or 12 leet. Don't we pay
our road tax. and are we not entitled to
some of thc benefit, or must we let it go
to the other sections to improve and
beautify their roads, and ours go down
in gullys, grow in brooder patches and
cultivated to a width ol io or rj feet.
Now it you don't believe me, just cross
Goodwin's mill creek and pass George
Ballard's enroule to Brightsvillc and see
where the roads have been looked after
I believe in rotation We will vote for
the man that will give us equal rights
and show special privilege to none. 1
believe in good roads and am willing
to pay my prorato share to have them.
.Now' Mr. Editor, I guess I had bet
ter call this letter to a close for fear ol
the waste, basket. Thanking you for your
patience in my experience ot trying to
write what I saw and heard yesterday,
will hmsh up in my next letter.
