brnging down a bird that was out of
the ordinary class of birds bagged in
tbese diggings. Mr. Curry had reach
the ford of Dials Creek, when he heard
a commotion above. Looking up he
saw a very large bird, which, having
become worried by a crowd of crows,
(as they were following it and mak
ing a tremendous noise) alighted />n
a bough of a tree. Of course the gun
was called into action, and the bird
fell to the ground dead. Judge of Mr.
Curry's surprise when he sawjt was
an eagle, measuring (so they say)
seven and one half feet from tip to
tip. How it came to bo this far from
its native haunts is a mystery. It
seemed to have been tired or It would
not hjave been flying so near the
earth. A large crowd went to have
a look at the bird, to many of whom
it was a "rare avis" indeed, as they'd
never seen an eagle before.

I wonder, esteemed Hillside cor
respondent, if you live In L-aurens or
Greenville county Pity my ignor
ance now. It is with shame that I
confess I've never even passed
through your little community (If I
did I didn't know It). True I hear of
your "garden spot',, through the me
dium of The Advertiser, and The Tri
bune, yet you "can search me' 'if I
know in which county you live. Surely
living In Laurens county you don't
want to worst yourself) and work for
that new county movement. Movement
will be all it will amount to (I hope)
for there's nothing doing in these
"diggings" toward voting for the new
county. Of co?rse, there may be a
kew exceptions, but I doubt it.
