The mountain excursion is another
great event for the people of this
city and section und it will attract
almost ns many passengers as tho
trip to Washington.
In 1880. 34 yours ugo. the idea of
au annual mountain excursion was
conceived by Col S. II. I'ickons, gen-j
oral passenger agent of the South
Carolina railroad. Since that timo tho!
mountain excursion, second Wedncs-I
?lay in August, has become! a thing of
necessity and many persons each year
make this their time to travel. Thc
trips offered combine pleasure, com
fort and rest with ample time and
very reasonable rates.
.Much attention ls paid to that por
tion of the announcement which rend
"$12 round trip to Washington." So
great is the travel io the national
capital that the Southern Hallway op
erates ?i special train on the after
j/ioon of August 12, arriving in Was1
ington the next morning. The Sea
board Air Line and thc Atlantic Coast
Hine offer the same rate, and wilt
have an extra equipment to accommo
date the crowds.
Many of the passengers to Wash
ington do not make that city their
final destination, but merely make
their Journey to other points fall on
tills day so that they may benefit by
the cheap rates. I nder this rate one
can make the round trip to Xew York,
for $20. about flo less than lt can be
made at regular rates. Some go to
Atlantic City, to Niagara Falls and to
various'otlier points, thus getting very
low rates to Norfolk, Richmond and
other points aro offered.
To the mountains flock hundreds of
people on these excursions each Au
gust, and already inquiries have been
made that would indicate a large
crowd this year. The Southern Rail
way will operate u special mountain
train from Charleston, running cu
tho sumo schedule as hist year.
