He spoke of the wonderful power of

them its own. He took up groups of
words and showed their etymology,
the changes of meaning through which
they have passed and how often the
history of a s ord contained the his

From the standstill at which every

The Bank of Ridgeway has decided
to build a handsome brick building to
be used as an office. It will be two
stories high and will be on the west
side of Main street, one above Mc.
Following up the good move of the
bank and school, the Masons have de
cided to tear down their lodge build
ing and put in its place a larger one of
brick. This building will be 85x80
feet and two stories high.
With such a start as this the wheel
should not be allowed to stop, but
several more stores and residences be
put in, then with some inducements
outsiders could be easily induced to
move to Ridgeway.

FREE DELIVERY OF MAIL.
A Route is E.conmended for Fairfield.
Frederick E.4Bach, special agent of
the postofflee department, spent seve
ral days here last week investig'iting
the roads, the postoffices, the star
routes and the population in this
vicinity with the view of making a
test of the Winnsboro postoffice for the
rural free delivery service. Mr. Bach
was assisted in his investigations by
Postmaster Preston Rion and Mr.
David E. McDowell. Tha result of
his investigatio.as is that the special
agent has made a report, favorably
recommending the establishment of
one route, to be served daily, except
ing Sundays and other holidays, with
Davd E. McDowell as rural carrier.
The rural carrier gives bond with two
sureties for $4,500 and receives $400
a year for his services.
The route as proposed at this place
by special agent Bach is as follows:
It will leave the postoffice at 7.30 a. m.
and go south by way of the Fairfield
Cotton Mills, and leaving the mail
there for the mill and its community,
will continue southward on the Co
Milons Given Away.
It is certainly gratifying to the pub
lic to know of one concern in the land
who are not afraid to be generous to
the needy and suffering. The proprie
tors of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Colds, have
given away over ten million trial bot
tles of this great medicine; and have
the satisfaction of knowing it has ab
solutely cured thousands of hopeless
cases. Asthma, Brohchitis, Hearsc
ness and all diseases of the Throat,
Chest and Lungs are sured by it. Call
on McMaster Co , druggists, and get a

miles tak the southbound road at the
Rev. Mr Mahon's place; southwest
passing M. W. Doty'a' far.s about
S miles to the D. G. Ruff corner;
northwest about 4 miles on the Co
lumbia and Chester road to the Glenn
Bridge road, near R. Y. Lemmon's
place; northeast about half mile;
thence east half mile so as to take-in
Yarborongh's mill; north half mile by

about five miles to the postoffice in
this town. Total distance 23 'miles;
area covered 28 square miles; 'farms
103; families more than 200; popula
tion over 1,000.
As a consequence of this service,
Rion postoffice will probably be dis
continued. Its business depends al
most wholly upon the Winnsboro
Granite Company and their mail will
all be carried from Winnsboro. They
wih eet their mail about two and one
half h.>nrs earlier than at present.
Tiw- star route from Jenning's
p)st, ilce, which now comes to Rock
ton by was of Horeb and Rion will be
ch nged so as to omit Rion. It will
be shortened from 121 miles to 9 miles.
The whole matter depends, however,
upon the department at Wasbington.
The special agents merely recommend.
The Postmaster General must approve
the reports and make the appointments,
if they are to be valid and pat into
operatien. There appears to be little
doubt that this route will be approved.
The special agent was sent here.at the
instance :of Hon. Stanyarne Wilson,
member of congress. Mr. Wilson is
taking a deep interest in postal affairs
and devoted himself with characteristic
energy last winter to the passage of
the act providing for rural free de
1ivery. It is his object to have the
experiment made at one point in each
county embraced by his district.
Recommendations have been made
for Spartanburg, Union, Greenville
and Winnsboro; others will be made
Special agent Bach has been work
ing in South Carolina since last Jan
uary and has made about 25 favorable
recommendations. These recommen
dations embrace one carrier for each
place, and with three or four oxcep
Tios I wo routes for each carrier. The
servicis is now in operation at Cope,
Orangeburg, St. George, Elloree,
Leesville, Smoak's, Bamberg, Aiken,
Johnston, Ridge Spring, Salada,
Prosperity, Sligh's Greenwood, Belton,
Abbeville, Laowdensville, Anderson,
Seneca and Easley.
Spartanbrg's, it is.expected, will go
into force on June 1 next; and Green
ville and Winnsboro on the 15th ot
The rural carrier is not expected,
after the first month, to get out of his
buggy to deliver any mail; but each
patron along the route will be re
quired, if he wants the service, to put
a box, at an elevation, angle and po
sition that may be easily reached by
he carrier as he sits in his carriage.
Letteis to be mailed should be dropped
into toe box, by each patron into his
own box, before the carrier comes
alng. If the writer has no stamp, he
must wrap up the letter with 2 cents
and drop thenm into the box. The
rural carrier is required to carry along
for tale postage stamps, postal cards
and stamped envelopes. Patrous re
siding at a distance from the route
may arrange with their neighbors on
the route to have their mall left.
There is no good reason why farmers
residing one or two miles or even
farthr from the route should n.t be
able in this way to arrange to hav.a
their letters left daily.
Letter boxes for the collection of
letters will be put up at the office of
the Wiunsboro Granite Company; at
D. G. Ruff's corner; at the janction
o the Chester and Glenn's Bridge
roads, and at the Fairfield Cotton.

key to these boxes.
