A Trip to WaInesville, Ga.
MR. EDITOR: On the morning
of the 20th tilt. I boarded the tuain
in Easley for Gainesville, Ga. The
day being pleasant I had a pleas
ant ride to the beautiful city of the
mountains. Gainesville is truly a
beautiful city, and is on quits a
building boonx at present. The
new Court H use that is being
constructed there will be q'uite an
ornament to the city, and it is now
under good headway, and wilt cost
when cIompjleted $30,000. I left
Gaineville on the morning of thbe
21st, returning home b~y private
conveyance. I camne first to the
little town of Gillsville, which is
quite a pretty town on the North
eastern Railroad, but at present is
almost depopulated-the causee I
do not know. ,L next came to llo
mner, the County'site of' Banks Co.,
which is a pretty towni, butt has no
Railroad1. I reached Carnesville
on the 23d, which is quite a hively
town. There was during the past
year a new Court H~ouse erected
there, and is quite an Qrnlamentr.
I crossedi Tugalo River onl Kno(x
bridge, passing throughi the beaueti
tnb little villages of Fair Play,
TJownville and1 Pendleton. I reaci1
ed Easley on the 241th ult. , through
one of the heaviest ram<4 I ever
saw fall. Trhe (erop prospect along
my line of travel seems to be good.
Wheat is unusually good, buIt is
being dama~ged by wet weat her.. I
