1THE 1).4, AT TATTLE31OUNTAIN
A Ileasant Time Enjoy-l by a Large T
Crowd at the Lutheran Reunion.
About two hundred persons from
Newberry attended the Luheran re
union at Little Mountain on Wednes- a
day, the 5th. A half-hour's ride on the e
C. N. and L. Railroad brought you to I
the station, and a walk of half a mile to f I
the western side of the mountain, v
where the addres-es were delivered _
and the picnic was held. .
Rev. Dr. Hawkins delivered an in- v
teresting address on "Historical Lu- 'I
theranismn" in which he sketched the 1
growth of the Lutheran Church in 3
South Carolina the past hundred years. a
The church had in 1781 six ministers
and fifteen churches in the- State, and
there are now fifty ministers, ninety
churches and 10,000 inember'.
Maj. H. A. Meetze, of Lexington, I
spoke next on the educational work of
the Lutheran Church, and especially
about the good work of New berry Col
lege, which he commended for its high
standing and urged that it be more
earnestly supported. s
Maj. Meetze's address concluded the
exercises of the reunion.
I The larger portion of the people then C
i ate their picnic dinner in groups, while C
those who were hungry for hash were s
served at the barbecue dinner, which C
was prepared by Mr. Adam Ripp, and
given for the benefit of Little Mountain
Little Mountain is a unique range
about three miles long and quite steep.
I It rises directly up in a comparatively
flat country. There are three peaks,
the highest eminence being the central
8 one, from whose summit there is a fine
1 view extending a distance of fifteen or
- twenty miles. The writer saw the
e smoke curling up from the chimney of
1 the Newberry Cotton Mills, but the
town was hidden by the pine forests
, south towards the south.
.8 It was quite a tiresome climb to the
Y summit, for the ascent is very steep,
e and you must be as careful as if on the
- Blue Ridge. We saw five ladies who
e made the ascent without any seeming
difficulty, and their combined avoirdu
y pois is one thousand pounds. One of
1 the party has almost passed three-score
I- and ten.
r- The re-union feature of the occasion
is was a most pleasant one. The 'writer
r. saw many people greeting each other
who had not met in forty years, and
others in twenty and thirty years.
It was estimated that 3,000 peorle
- were present. They came from Colum
bia, Prosperity, Newberry, Lexington,
r Edgefield, Fairfield, Orangeburg and
other parts of the State, and a few from
Florida and Georgia.
The day was thoroughly enjoyed by
is everybody and the best order prevailed.
a- Nothing marred the occasion except
It the accident that befell Mr. John
rY Epting, of Lexington County. A dead
s, tree fell upon him, and injured him
h quite seriously. The tree was kicked
y down by a mule.
or THE LOT SALE.
d The lots of the Piedmont Land I1
ob provement and Investment Company
*d- were offered for sale by Mr. L. T.
4st Levin, the popular auctioneer of Co
it lumbia. There was no demand among
rh the people who were present, as thpy
t were bent on having a pleasant time
among friends and acquaintances than
securing a summer residence. The
Herald and News has been informed
by Mr. H. C. Moseley. president of the
Piedmont Land Improvement and In
nvestment Company, that since the sale
lehe has received inquiries about no less
than twenty-three of these lots frcom
rties who desire to purchase. This
is the resu a
given the property in calling attenti.
to the advantages of this mountain.
This mountain is destined in the near vi
future to be a delightful summer ret
