EASLEY, S. C., NOV. 23, 1883.
We note withl interest the result of
the meeting of the Board of Directors
of the Carolina, Cumberland Gap :nd
Chicago Rail Road, which was held at
Aiken Court House lastt week. For
some time general intere4 il this new
enterprise had apparently been1 waning
but a bri-iiter day dawned upon it, and
Pickens County might well feel grate.
ful to a few of her noble sons, who, by
their thrift and ernergy, have helped to
bring about such flattering signs of sue
cess. While Greenville so strongly
contested for the main line of the road
she met her iatch in the ever-pro
gressive County of Pickens. She was
confronted by ien, too stalwait-like to
be bul'ed oll' by every stentoriau ery,
and was attempting to secure wil b too
vain a hope, a deflection from the al
tog(ether natiral route. We desire
every 11aderl of THE MESSENGER to
notice particularly the article oil the
first pag1fe enititled, "More ecua
ging."' The report of the (lairmani of
the delegation sent by Greenville to
Aiken, is in substance. included in it.
T1h2. hope of Sec1riing" thle( i main linle of
the roatd, by our neighboring eity, hs
become a forlorn hope. We have the
road, and tmay expect to see its Com
pletiol, at 110 very distallt day in the
future. Thle thriving little town of
Easley may yet become the Atlanma of
South Carolina. She may be the ter
minus for the Savannah Valley roal,
and after all be made the dist ribit in
point, which evidently she shuiild he.
Let Easley congratulate herself on
the fact, that Col. B. E. Bowen, one
Of her most worthy men, has heien
elected Vice-President of the' road.
In this enterprise he has known no
such wordl as fail. In the darkest mo
ments of desp)air', hope found its exist
ence ini his heart. lie was the first to
initiate the muuscular movement, and~
will Ae the last to lnd his very p)otenit
influence to this grand scheime. lie
saysV 'ude have the roadl now if we (10 not
go to sleep. See to itevery body, that
his hands are upheld in tiis matter, and
show your appreciation of him, who
takes such aln interest ini you and in
your future welfare.
WE niotice in the "Greenville News"
of the 18th instant, a groundless piece
of sarcasm from the would-be tren
chant pen of a correspondlent from
Looper'~s Postofflee, in this County,
who, under the cover of a unom de
plume, gives prominenee to a tr'vial
error to be found in the back numbeu'
of THE MESSENoER. H e cloaks him
self in a fictitious name, and with a
full knowledge of tihe fact that the er
ror was an oversight on the part of the
editors and printers, he attempts a
poor play at sarcasm. But like all
men of his type, he imust have an out
let, or else thue wvorld might conclude
that he has beeni llrowned( in the poo01
of insignifleance. However, from the
pen of "Sigma" there yet may spring
a production that shall tell posterity of
The following is whnt he had to sny

P. Im. What do you think of that?
VIhee did your neighbors get the idea
of holding Sinday Scl)1 at. that time
of n ight? I hope the MESSENGER will
tell us how it sueedeeus. If it does het
terl than the1 old Way (InI the! morning)1(v
others may follow.
