went to Lau t ens Friday in response to
an invitation to make an addl'i ss on
Saturday to a re-Union of a part of ids
old Regiment,the Third South Carolina
Volunteers, in which Regimont he en
listed and served as a Confederate sol
dier. Unfortunately for the Veterans,
however, the constant downpour of
rain prevented the re-tin ion, and they
thereby missed what would have hi en
a most delightful address. Wide-spread
interest was manifested In the occa
sion, and it is reported that as many
as porhaos 100 Veterans of this Regi
ment had gat hored In from other places
to en joy the occasion. There was no
bettor Regimont in tho service than
the Old Third: and many of the best
citizens of this county helped support
her Hag on many a bloody Hold. May
they live for many a re-union in the fu
ture. Anderson Inlollingccr.
