RIDING THE MAIL.
We rode the mail on Ttuesday with
Judge W. G. Peterson on the R. P. D.
No. 1, from Newberry through No. 6.
It was a pleasant (lay, neither too hot
nor too cold. A little dusty, though
the judge said we did not know what
dust was, that we should have been
with him a few weeks ago before the
last rain when ihe declares you could run
your hand down through the powdered
dust to the depth of nine inches by ac
tual measurement. rhis route is twenty
seven miles and has fifty-six boxes.
On Tuesday he had a buggy full of pa
pers and letters, a rather heavy mail.
At many places the people were pros
ent to meet him and get their paper.
It is a great convenience to the peo
pie who live in the country to have
their papers and letters delivered every
day right at their doors and to have the
privilege of sending off mail every day.
We are not an applicant for the job.
The trip on Tuesday was pleasant, but
all things contributed to make it so.
But to go o-.er the same route every
day in all !7orts of weather we would
riot care to undertake.
The first delivery is at Mr. Geo. '.
Hill's and then the boxes are seat terel
until the nation is reached Ither com
pretty fast. Heyond iLngshores andh,1
Mr. .J. I. Workman's and just bfor"re
reaching Nir. I . A. M;ayer's i. what is
known as mail box corner. where undl
some wide-spreading oiks in the c.-ol
shade stand seven boxes. At Ni r.
Mayer's Judge Peterson says is th
most elevated place ill New bet-l-V col H11 V.
ve reached the home of Mr. IlIvr
11. Abaams just at 12 o'clock. awi
there we rested for a lit tle Inore than
all hour alli eiljoyed olle of thost, gt'i

well how to prp),1are.
From Mr. Abrams' the route g:oe's t:
to Mr. M. NI. Satterwhite's and thence
by Mir. 1'. X. Cem' akt h
Longshore road at NI r. W llii \\ilson's.
From there to Newberry we came over
some of the road recentlv wi,rki
the chaingang and the new manery.
Some good work has 1ben iin bu .
what a pity there was not -ome r: b

Mr. Wilson's would not have needed
anything dlone on it for several vears.
The gang has been on this road about
six weeks and they have covered ablut
six miles. This sort of work shoutih bt.
done properly because it is inl tile nat '.
of permanent work. 1However. the
road is greatly improved ani miany if
the bad places have been grave ti a
depthI of eight inches. There is a 1nI
dant material for this work in eas;
reach. On t his route, as we said, ther.
are fiftyv-six boxes and there is onIlytone
in which one or both of the counlty pa
per's does not go. T[his is a good reiiird,
it seems to us. The Hlerald and News
puts sixty-one papiers into the fifty -six
boxes, which is also grati fying.

THE PORMAL OPENINrG.
The Students of Newberry College Listen
To Eloquent Words of Advice and
Tho formal opening of Newberry col
lege took place on Friday morning in
the college chapel. As is the custom
each year, addresses to the students
were delivered by prominent citizens of
New erry and friends of the institution.
The exercises were largely attended,
there being present, in addition to the
student body, many alumni, former
students and friends of the college.
Addresses were delivered by Dr. E. P.
MeClintock, the Rev. W. L. Seabrook,
Mr. A. C. Jones, the Rev. Geo. A.
Wright, Chief Justice Y. J. Pope, and
the Rev. N. N. Burton.
The opening was very auspicious.
'rhe enrolment has already reached the
total enrolment of last year, the most
successful year ever experienced by
the institution since its foundation in
1857. The college, under the able man
agement of its president, Dr. Geo. B.
Cromer. assisted by the ellicient and
L-onsecrated faculty, has experienced a
very rapid and healthy growth for the
past several years. 'Tihe plant has long
been inadequate for the work which it
is desired to accomplish. but with tihe

the great sadness of your neglect.
Tle Rev. N. N. Burton, of the West
End Baptist church, said if he weie to
preach a sermon on this occas;on, it
would be the gospel of hard work. lie
urged co-operation between student.i
and faculty, and among the students.
As a last thought he urged the student
by all means to take care of their souls,
which they could best do by seeking to
answer their devoted mothers' prayers.
President Cromer then told the stu
dents that they had heard what the
gentlemen who had spoken expected of
them, and these gentlemen had told
them what the world expected of them.
In the words of Beecher, 'set higher
standards for yourselves than any body
else sets yor you.'"
The new students were classified and
the regular work of the session was
begun on last Wednesday. The faculty
remains the same as last year, with
one exception. Prof. W. K. Sligh
was granted a year's vacation by the
board of trustees, and during thi, ses
