if the Legislature should rcconsider
its action, after declining to mike the

money. We are sore '.hat if voters are
consu'ted that a large majority of them
. will a<*ree that the expense of holhing
a 3C38ioa of the Legislature every year
is not a "necessary" expense, e-peciajly
ia th?sa hard times; and in fact many
of them will say that while it-is all
vary pleasfint to read the speeches of
t^eir friends in the General Assembly
on the subjects that come up annually,
the membtrs "represent people who
are not able to indulge in luxuries "
One or two hundred dollars for a
sword is not much for a State to spend,
but our General Assembly has said
j- that it "is absurd and wrong, where
cur exchequer is depleted and taxes
j have to b? extenieJ." If then the
State is in such straights that th3 members
of the General Assembly consider
It "absurd and wrong" to spend one
or two hundred dollars, then it must
.._t that it is worthy ot the cou
sic? -o.'.ion of the same body to consider
bow they can save many thourr?v
saads. A3 t'ee News and Conner says,
"An average of $25,000 a year saved
to a people who cannot afford to throw
away $100 once in a generation, is a
very iwportant saving." This is about
what every session of the L?g'ulalnre
costs the people Every year we hear
?orn??fr fn?s m^fle abont nseless exDen
cliture? ami that the State Treasury is
so depleted that many r.eces?ary appropriatior.s
can not be made. Now is a
good tioce to start, and we know of no
better place to begin than with the
General Assembly itself. If anything
is unnecessary, it is this yearly meeting
of the General Assembly.

Winrsboro, Jan. 13,189!).
By Miu Annie Doty.
It is now about two centuries ago
that I lay on this ground a little aorn
wbich bad fallen from one of the
numerous trees that were all around
me. A <r>od many things have happened
to ibis cjuntry and i.o this town
alio in two centuries, .and I will now
relate to you all the history of my
past life. I did not stay in me aarK;
cold ground long bat, spring np and
grew rapidly. As I grow older, I
began to notice things and I saw tbat
a great forest grew all around me > ?
far as I could see. Next to me grew
& great oak tree. Ic was tho largest
one of the forest and I often wondered
if erer I would be as large as that.
Next to the oak tree grew a beautifal
maple and I always actnired it ?c
Bat it make3 me so sad to talk
about those happy old time?, for now
all the trees are cut down and I alone
am spared to tell you our hirory.
Indian* roamad all around this country
then, and they would past beneatU nay
bough* nearly every dav, and sometimes
come and eat their dinner iu my
cool and refreshing shade. Mauy s
wild turkey has made his roost cn my
boughs and squirrels have made iheir
homes iu my trunk. All this went
on for a long time till one bright day
I saw *ueh a strange sight; it wa?
some white men. They brought wiib
them some thingjjMhat they called axes
and with them they began to cut down
all my friends. Then th??y began tc
drag my friends away and I never
saw them any more. I felt very sad
al.er this and thought that I would
not like to see the white men any
more. But sooo I saw two mors
white men coming a^d J] listened tc
see what they were talking about.
One of them said, f,I think that this
will be a pretty site for the school,
and th-j otner said, "Yes, I thiok so
too," and they went awty. Two 01
thre? weeks passed before any more
people came near me. But when they
did come they- all brought ax*s witt
them and began to cut d iwn more
trees I listened to their conversation
and found out that they were
building a <chool f->r the pour children
atidorpbHiis; this was in the year
1777. I saw all my friends falling,
T trembled for mv lire, but I heard
one o{ tbe meu tay. ''Tn?-* tree is so
beautiful. Don??r cut i'd >v\n but le!
it stand in front of Uie?clr>>?l." Th;y
all agreed t> it and so my life was
Long afterwards, I he ml *ome

changed into a college in 1785 I
heard them say alio that it was une
of the largest colleges i:.i the State.
Many noted men got thvlr first education
here and I also heard lhat on?

He being a British general au I 1 an
American oak, of course, I diJ not
like him to camp under mv biauches,
but, being onlv an oak, could not
help myself. He stayed here from
Ootobsr 17f0 to January 1781. He
had his headquarters at an old house
in town, now the residence of Mr.
Dick McMast2r. Thert was au old
citizen or this town men wnose name
was Mr. Vanderhost. He gave the
land on which the school was built and
tbere|i8 now a street in town named
after nim.
In 1S65 the Northern goneial, Sherman,
came through here with his army,
burning and destroying property
wherever he went. He did not stayin
this town long $nd I think that
everybody was .glad when he went
away. Ou ' e Sunday evening about
four o'clock I neard suen a noise and
looked down to see what was tbe
matter. I saw that the scnool was on
fire. The people ran ap witn toe nreengine
and tried to put it our, bat it
was burnt to the ground. I heard
afterwards that a boy bad buen tmoking
in bed and had accidsntaly set tbe
school on fire. The tchcol was built
up agaiu in a bhort while.

Many years ago in the early days of ^
South Carolina I was cue of a very ?
great fo:est of hees. Beneath uiy ^
branches squirrel, bears, deer aod
oiher wild animals roamed. Often
the Indians would shoot wild turkeys j
1 from my braucoes. I am now about rj
two hundred years old, and have Q
beard and seen many important bis1
torical events. Among my many neigh- j
bors and friends in the forest were the j.
i nine, miple, poplar a-id hickory. Oae
' dsy a great crowd of men entered the ^
1 forest and with axs? soon cleaved the r
giett forest; I was the only o.\e left e
: s:andit>?. I feared that my life would s
1 also be taken, but they seeineJ not to
notice such an insignificant thins: as t
' myself. c
' During the war ol the Revolution j
Lord Cornwall!^, witn h put of his a
; array, encamped beneath tny branches
from October, 1730, to Januiry, 1781. T
! It was very pleasant to hear tbem tell s
jolly tories whiie smoking around t
their camp fires.
In 1777 it was decided t>7 the settlers j.
to b-.iild a school for the education of
the children of the community. This c
1 rem-ioe<l tlr; oniy means for educa- j,
tion in th:s immediate part of the t
country until 17S5, at which time it r
was decided by tka Legislature of ^
Soutb Carolina to build a college c
! where the old school was standing, j
1 This college wa? for the free education c
! of the px>r and orphans. The college
was established in the sama ye*r that ^
' the town wa? incorporated. The ^
' town *as called YYinusooro ror jar. ^
[ Wiun, one ot the first inhabitants of j
the town. ' c
S^nae years after the ollege was e
' chinged from a free educational insti- e
. tntioa into a boarding school for boys. ^
' The land, on whi?h the college was j.
' bnikled, wa9 dona'ed by a Mr. Van- t
derhorst another of vVionsboro'a
early settles. His nama is \ erpetu- (
. in name ef voar street. r
In the year of I860, during the civil j
' war, Sherman passed through thiR a
country, leaving fire and d?-elation a
behind him. Ob! that was a terrible
, year; the hou9e3 were robbed and t
1 everything v&Inable taken. Then they
> burned the houses and the women and r
: children were left homeless.
One day, about thirty years ago, tbe
( college was burned. It was caused by
the carelessngsi of a boy smoking

cigar and caught the bed on fire; from b
. this the college ceaght and soon lay in C
! ashes. Again, I feared that my life
. would be lost, and indeed some of my o
iimbs were badly burned. But by n
' good fortune the burns were not eeri
ous, so I soon recovered. Afier tbis t
school wa9 burned another was buildcd,
which still stands. It bears the i
