THE NEW DEPOT.
We learn from a reliable source that .
the new passenger depot is really tot
.be built and that work on it will be
begun soon. The depot will cost
:about $1,800 and is to be very muchA
like the Rock Hill station. The depoti
-will be built on the lower end of the
lot bought by the railroad company,
and as the lot is much higher than the
railroad, steps will lead from the
platform down to the track. Although
a petition was circulated by some of
the citizens requesting that the depot
should not be moved the railroad
company have not changed their
plans, as they feel the need of a new
station, Winnsboro being one of the
few places on this line that has not ai
modern depot. .
MT, ZION INSTITUTE.
Mt. Zion Institute is in a most flour
ishing condition this year and things
are running along very smoothly. This
year there are 1%5 pupils in attendance I
-more than thete were last year-andI
twenty-six of these scholars are from
places cutside of this school district.1
The school has a splendid corps of
teacners, -and the principal, Prof.
Witherow, is working hard for the
good of the school, and the increase
in the attendance this year is the fruits1
of his labors.
On Friday at 1.30 o'clock Rev. J. D.
Crout, of the Mettedist Church, de
livered a lecture to the scholars, which1
was both instructive and entertaining.
Prof. Witherow will make an effort to
h~ive a lectura delivered every Friday.
Some of our pr'>minent men will be
asked to deliver these lectures. The1
parents and friends of the children
should attend these lectures and should
encourage inl every way all efforts to
build up and perfect the institution.
No reports were issued for the first
mo:ith, but wil be given out at the
end of the second month. The honor
roll will also be published.

DEATH OF MISS ESTHER DAVIS.
The sad tidings of the death of Miss

vill be heard with deep regret by the

Vinnsboro, and the sympathy of the

ollowing from the Columbia State:
Greenville, October 13.-After a lin
ering illness of several weeks, Miss
Psther Davis died this morning at the
ome of her aunt, Mrs. A. B. Sinkler,

[t, is needless to state that we re

Our sorrow at the loss of the above

that they will conclude to make it

Mr. J. Walkup Douglass has re

already spent two years in the semi

while at home and made a fine im
pression on all who heard him. :
Mr. J. Lunce Brice has also shaken
the dust of New Hope from his feet;
and gone to Rock Hill to enter into
the mercantile business. We trustI
and believe that there is sufficient at
traction to draw him back to. us oc
casionally. In fact, we bear that he
has already paid New Hope a fiying
visit, coming and going like the thief

visit may be inferred from the Jact
that our only informant was a: youbg

Miss Macie Stevenson contemplates
returning soon to her mission work'in
Tampico, Mexico. She intended to
return about the 1st of October, but
was prevented by the prevalence of
yellow fever -in Tampico. We think
it will be altogether unsafe for her to
return for several months yet.
