SALDI)A WATERS HIGH.
Slight Injury Reported to Temporary
Bridge at Ware Shoals.
Brkwkrton, April 19.?Everything
has gone back Into winter quarters
over on this side, except Snider, Oats
and Company's temporary bridge on
Saluda, and It has left this part of the
river and one of the cofferdams In com
pany with It. Late Monday evening,
while the river was rising rapidly, the
cofferdam on the Laurens tide gave
way at once which caused about 60 feet
of the temporary bridge just below It
to wash away; it being tho part resting
on benches, the other part resting on
piers built wi.h large p!ne logs and
lllled with rock. It still remains all
right This is the first and most se
rious difficulty, the dam builders have
met with since they have commenced
work on t.Vio Bhrals. The work on the
cotton mill proper is progressing slowly

A FINE EOG HUNT.
Children Had a Delightful Time on
Good Friday Which all of Them
On Good Friday afternoon, the 10th
of April, a parly composod of the chil
dren, and older ones too, of North Har
per Street and a few from other parts
of the city gathered at Mr. Gus Watts'
residence to colebrato the joyful an
ticipation of tho Easter holiday and
the delights of egg hunting.
A basket of eggs was bought dyed,
for this occasion, with the brightest
dyos that could be found in the Pal
metto Drug Store. By three o'clock
all the children had gathered in the
front yard under the trees and enjoyed
eating plnders and playing all Sorts of
games till egg hunting time.
?nr?6 the boys were rathor timid
and often when selected by one of the
girls would climb the fence or nearest
tree. All their fe clings of embarrass
ment had qulto paesed away when
called by the ladles, sometime later to
tho darkest room In the house, made
darker still by the closing of blinds
and tho drawing of curtains?there
locked in to stay until all tho egg?, as
they thought, wero securely hid. For
several minutes, which seemed almost
like hours, were some of the most un
heard of screams, shouts and amusing
remarks made by soino of the smaller
children in tho room.
By and bv the door was unlocked and
It was announced that the eggs were
all bid. All bounded out, by their
bright faces showing they were out for
a good time and intended to have it.
The grass and honey suckles wore
beautifully green in front of the gate
affording a fine place for hiding eggs.
Now and then a bright egg would be
found pooping through the green leaves
and a little shout would go up until all
wore found. Some found seven or
eight, whi'e othors found not so many,
John Watts, Frank Martin and Loyd
Laugston finding the greatest number.
But thoy were all very nearly eaqually
divided among the children and tho
egg pecking and eating of the hard
boiled eggs were indulged in.
As the evening shadows came on we
all returned with tired limbs but
happy hearts and many delightful
memories of the afternoon eo pleas
antly spent at Mr. Watts'. We thank
Mrs. Sulllivan so much for so kindly
entertaining us and Mrs L?ngsten who
was so thoughtful as to plan suoh a de
lightful occasion for the old as well as
the young of North Harper.
Wo are a lively little band here,
where we can get an abundance of
fresh air and pure water; jnst far
enough from the main part of the city,
if one fcols like it. to scream right out,
and no one is alarmed, and have no fear
whatever of a big policeman getting
him. It's trne our street is a libtlo

The Rood wc -m had tastefully deco

table and loaded it with good things to
eat. Capt. Lanford, the only surviving
commissioned ofllcor, called the roll
and read a letter from Chief Justice
Pope, Adjutant of the 3rd Regiment,
regretting his inability to attend. Also
a letter from Dr. John R. Smith, of the
7th of Mareh, 20 days before his death,
expressing his intention to attend if
able. This letter breathed in eloquent

that characterized his life.
Resolutions, introduced by Capt.

had died since the last annual roll call.

father's, (tho lamented Col Ball) rela

Ho paid a magnificent tribute to the
men and glorious women of the South,
and went into an elaborate discussion
of tho causes and consequences of the
war, showing that Northern fanaticism
and encroachment led up to tho John
Brown raid, Kansas War and War of
Coercion, and desolation of the South.
He called attention to the historic
truth that the great North in the in
cipieney of tho struggle would not
openly avow their purpose of waging
war for freeing the negro and giving
him citizenship, but put it upon tho
ground of being a war for the preserva
tion of the TTnion. Ho quoted from
Secretary Root and others to show that
Northern sentiment recognized that in
so far as making a hotter citizen of an
alien race, whoso condition horo had
boon improved, it was only hotter than
his brother in Arlca, by reason of con
turloBof contact with the whito man.
Ho laid special stress upon tho truth
that Northern statesmanship had been
impotent for the task of furnishing a
solution of the race problem, or of put
ting tho nogro in a condition superior
or oven equal to that he occupied as a
slave. Mr. Ball sought to impross up
on the young ospooially that had It not
boon for tho presonco and inlluence of
tho veteran element this country would
never have been redoemed from the
horrors of reconstruction and tho roign
of to?ror. This was ono of the abl?st
discussions of these questions that this
