The State has reported recently that
piuns were developing for a notable
celebration this spring or that cen

of agriculture, is to be one of the

farmers' society. Two elements, more
or leB3 blended, complemented each
other in the association. "The resident
members were In the multi sons of
men who hud first wrested this beau
tiful country from its savuge wildness
and then hud given tneir strength and
help lu wresting it from Great Brit
ain. The honorary members were
chiefly nonresidents; many of them,
however, had summer homes, these
were from Charleston and the coust.
In the Immediate vicinity of Pendleton.
Mr. Calhoun's residence was within
a few mil'': of the village, hut his
public duties demanded the greater
part of his time in Washington. All
of them were men of refinement and
high culture. The names -of many of
them are Identified not only with the
hlatory of South Carolina, hut with
thc hlatory of thc United States.
"No wonder that old Pendleton
chouhl have been so aggressively pro
gressive in eliminating savagery und
in upbuilding civilization. Excepting
Charleston, here was established the
first newspaper in the State, tho Pen
dleton Messenger, and the first farm
era* society, the Pendleton Farmers'
socioty; and here, too, was'establish
ed one of tho flr3t agricultural maga
sines In tho South. The Funner and

Pendleton cotton factory. ... A ref
erence~to-the annual roils of the Pen
dleton Farmers' society from Its birth
in 1815 through the first half of last
century will fully Justify this tribute
front the young people of that day
and commands equally respect and
admiration from u* grown-up people
Maj. Sloan's earliest recollections
are of old Pendleton. He was born on,
his father's plantation, //hich was
separated from that of John G\J2al
boun by the Set..?ca river. The dwel
ling, long alnte burned. Btood upon
the crest ot a hljh hill, three-quar
ters of a mlle perhaps lower down
than that of Mr. Calhoun. Tho fam
ily moved In 1838 to Pendleton vil
Hamburg was in those times Pen
dleton's nearest market. "In the
fall." says Maj. Sloan, 'cotton and
whatever of salable produce m/;ht be
an hand waa borne to this markot In
wagons, which on their return
brought back a yoar'a supply of nec
essary goods-tea; coffee, sugar, mo
lasses, salt, Iron, etc., and such lux
uries as the market could supply adn
the weight of tho pocketbook justified.
All foodstuffs other than those men
tioned were produced at-home. Bach
plantation was, in fact, aa a separate
principality. As far aa vicualllng was
concerned, each might have atood a
selgc of considerable length and in
every way it was fairly well self-sus
taining. Perhaps my father's waa the
most modest one of them all, but he
had hi? carpenter, hts blacksmith and
wagonmaker. his shoemaker, carders
and spinners of cotton and wool,
.looms and weavers .ot cloth, semp
stresses and Held laborers. There was
a mill for grinding corn, machines for
threshing,, and cleaning small grain
(home-made, both ot them), a ma
chine for husking and cleaning rice,
a cotton gin and screw press (primi
tive, both of them, it la true), and vats
for tanning the aides of animals
nlauRtered. Horses, mules, cattle.
?heep and hogs were bred end raised
on the place. The planter ?roly lived
at home, but his Ufe was a busy one
and full of responsibilities. an# for
his wife there was'-ever an Imperative
duty ot bund.. But it must be confes
sed that money wa* scarce. Tho price
or cotton ranged rrom 6 to 6 cents
per pound and rom BOK? from 40 to
co cents,a bushel; tho latter was con
sidered to b* an excellent price."
, A Glimpse of Calhoun.
Mr. Calhoun When at home always
attended the meetings; ot the farmers'
society, of which he was for some
years the president. "Kc gatre to farm
ing muci\ parlous thought." Maj. 81oan
remembers, "nod Introduced '?'o the
neighborhood many Improved farm
ing methods. ... 1 think he ls re
sponsible for the introdurt/h of hill
side ditching for protecting the hills
from gulleylng; terracing, however,
has since proved to he a better meth
od. Wa practice induced farmers to
plow deeper in preparing land for
crops; he brought to their attention
methods of selecting seeds for Bowing,
and I think hy introduced itermuda
.grass nlto thnt section of country, a
grass which ia really a blessing to ai
of tho South, but one which provokes
the ire of s plowman."
Mal. Sloan remembers particularly

Just when was acquired by the BO

the title to ? .e ground appears to
have been vested in the society, and
the act of 182? erecting Anderson j

district shows that then the present
structure was building. The four tall1
brick columns were erected, the roof
was altered to its present conforma

made in 1843 by Calvin Hall.

Thomas G. Clemson-read"a- paper by

that ultimately resulted in the estab

Clemson, son-ln-lav? of John C. Cal

under Buchanan and had served the
Confederate government as mineral

J. C. Stribling, president of the so

of Seneca this reminiscence of Cal
houn: Sitting in the north porch of
his Fort Hill home, about 1845, Mr.
Calhoun, in conversation with Dr}
Cherry, Dr. Thomas Lewis and other
friends, said that if bo stood in their
places and desired to grow up with
a city, ho would settle at Martha,
which is now Atlanta, for tho reason
that he believed a railroad would
shortly be built from Washington to
New Orleans and that other railways
would cross the niuo Ridge through

Gov. B. F. Perry, addressing the
Pendleton society In the early '80s,
recalled the circumstances In which

the names which had ornamented its
rolls. "War with Great Britain had

The late Col. Thomas Wenworth Hlg
ginson's ltfe of Lafayette has made the
romantic story of Francis Huger fa
miliar to schoolboys everyweher.
Huger was but three years of age
when Lafayette, on his way to Join the
American patriots landed with ll
companions, on the night of April 14,
1777. on North Island. Winyah bay,
and became the gueat of Huger's
Lither. The countly young marquis
Impressed the imagination of the
child and ever afterward was his hero.
All the world knows how Francis
Huger, a ?core of years later, with
his fellow Htudent, Eric llollman.
rescued Lafayette from the Austrian
fortress of Olmutz. Their strategy
was immediately successful, though
Lafayette, having misunderstood the
directions given him, took the wrong
road and was recaptured near the
frontier. Huger. * wing given up to
Hellman the one horse available for
their escape, was taken neajr^the spot
and himself was commlttetT 'to the
noisome dungeon of OlraUtz, where
he languished through eight months.
Huger's connection with the Pen
dleton society arose out of his mar
riage in 1811 to a daughter of Gen.
Thomas Plnckney. the first president
of the society. His son. Benjamin,
horn in 180G, was presented with a
sword of honor by the State of South
Carolina in 1852 for meritorius con
duct and. gallantry in tl/: war with
Mexico. In the War? Between the Sec
tions he attained the grade of briga
dier ^general In the Confederate States
army. He died in Charleston In 1877.
