(Question Between Laurens
Matter Came up in a Suit
Mistrial in Case of Building Associa
tion against Young -Larger Questions
May Arise?Town of Whit mires.
In the case of the Equitable Building
and Loan Association, of Augusta,
against O. F. Young, a mistrial re
sulted in the Conrt of Common Pleas
Monday. The question Involved part
of the "Brick House" tract. Mr. Young
conveyed to tho Association that part
of the tract in Laurens. He claims
that the house stands in Newberry.
The county line is the old road fixed
by law a hundred years ago and more
from Island Ford, on Saluda, to Odell's
Ferry, on Enoroe, but the road has
been chanced. The question is whether
It was changed at the point where the
old brick Calmes house stands. Mr,
Y'oung rotains possession of that and
the Association is trying to recover It,
claiming it in Laurens. Old residents
of tho neighborhood testified that it
had been regarded as it: Newberry, but
there was some testimony tho other
way. It wa6 testified that in the fifties
Dr. Calmes ran for the senato in New
berry, and it was also testified that ho
ran for office In Lauren?. He owned
the house in thoso days. It stands on
the north side of the present road.
Judge Caroy ruled that a change of
the road would not change tho county
line. If It is In Newberry it will be
loDg to Mr. Young. In 1807 a commis
sion was appointed to establish tho
county line botween Newberry and
Laurens, so it must have beon ihjdoubt
even then. No report of the commis
sion Is on record. A new survey of the
whole line may be found necessary, and
It is said that possibly the lively town
of Whit.mires with its cotton mill and
bank, may be found to be in LaurenB.
Newberry claims it now.

HOW THE BATTLE WAS LOST.
Or tho Story of a Town that Went
Laurons longed for knowledge so sho
tried to get a college. She appointed a
committee who ransacked the city.
They had a littlo list and for money
they'd insist. Down would go your
name for your last, lonely dollar and
you'd boldly bite off more than you pos
sibly could swallow. They had a little
song and they sang It loud and long.
Greenwood would be beat and victory
would bo sweet. Tho college proud
would sit and with pride we'd look at
It adorning some big hill. Then we'd
laugh lit to kill. (This was in our mind.
Now let us bo resigned.) We offered
several sites; each of numerous do
lights. Then wo raised 'cm. As for
Greenwood, that dazed 'em.
Down went tho committee to Newberry
?well, bent to get tho dewberry. Poor
old Aikon, how he sweated! While Na
than Dial ogled and petted Methodist
preachers till his featuros took on an air
of early piety?ho kept such society.
Brother William Gray was in the thick
of tho fray and came back as gay as
though ho had carried the day. Now
Johnnie Bolt was quite at home, for
though he doesn't like to roam, all the
time ho was pretty nigh merry thinking
ho had struck a primary. Another there
was THE Advertiskr. (But as we
grow oldor wo grow wiser.) All Lau
rens arrived later?and then came
homo somewhat sedator. A train load
early Thursday eve from Laurens took
Its happy leavo. Full twenty of our
heaviest men wore in tho party. But
at ten tho laboriug locomotive fails to
further pull so many whales.
For nine long hours then they wait
with ample time to meditate upon the
glory of the day when they would
suro'y bring away Columbia's college
of renown to our own incomparable
Tho morn has come and Conference
meets. Bold Greenwood scorns talk of
dofcats. But Laurens makes another
dash to Jive and forty thousand cash.
Tho battlo ragos thick and fast, tho
prize Is in our grip at last.Brave Feath
erstono makes a powerful speech: the
boys all say "Ain't he a peach?"
Alas! The voting has begun. Alas!
In sorrow ends the fun. The college
stays where it is stuck and Laurens is
left in the ruck.

you first hud better gain the knowledge,
before tho movo you do approve, that
the college is going to movo.
