Crop iu this part of the county are

crops planted until after the dry
weather set in, and the result it they
have not a stand of either cotton or

although some of our farmers will
harvest some from both.

A Route is Recommended for Fairfield.
Frederick E.'.Bach, special agent of
the postoffiee department, spent several
days here last week investigating
the roads, the postofflces, ihe star
routes and the population ia this
vicinity with the view of makiog a
test of the Winusboro postoffiee for thc=
rural free delivery service. Mr. Bsch
was assisted in his invesiiguiions by
Postmaster Preston Rion and Mr.
David E. McDowell. Tin result of
his investigation is ihat the special
agent has made a report, favorably
recommending the establishment of
one route, to be served daily, exceptCrin/?ATrfi
Q rt/1 nth**** llrtlli'lflVfl- With
David E. McDowell as rural carrier.
The rural carrier give3 bond with two
sureties for $4,500 and receives $400
a year for his services.
The route as proposed at tnis place
by special agent Bach is as follows:
It will leave the postoffice at 7.30 a m.
and go south by way of the Fairfinkl
Cotton Miils, and leaving I he ma;!:
there for the mill and its com inanity,
will continue southward on the Co
lambia road 1 mi;e; thence west II
mile to Robertson's corner; south 1& j
miles to W. R. Doty & Oo.'s Weston i
place; thence southeast to DJlenfty't
corner; northeast half mile to Steadman's;
south half mile to Mrs. R. D.
Bolick's; west by way ofRioupostofflce
to the Wiansboro Granite Company's
office; returning about 1}
miles take the soathbound road at the
Rev. Mr Mahon's place; 6oathwest
passing M. W. Doty's farms about
3 miles to the D. G. Raff corner;
northwest aboat 4 miles on the Coinmhia
and f^hftsfer road to the Glenn
Bridge road, near R. Y. Lemmon's
place; northeast about half mile;
thence east half mile so as to take in
Yarborongh's mill; north hfelf mile by
way of Brown's mill to the Glenn
Bridge road; northeast on that road
about five miles to the postoffice in
this town. Total distance 23.miles;
area covered 28 square miles; farms
103; families more than 200; population
over 1,0C0.
As a consequence of this service,
Rion postoffice will probably be discrjtinned.
Its business depends almost
wholly upon the "Winnsboro
Granite Company and their mail wili
j all Jje carried from Winnsboro. They
Win gee uieir man aooui nvu auu uubhalf
hoars earlier than at present.
The star route from Jenning's
postoffice, which now comes to Rockton
by way of Horeb and Ition will be
changed to as to omitRion. It will
be shortened from 124 miles to 9 miles.
The whole matter depends, however,
upon the department at Washington.
The special agents merely recommend.
The Postmaster General must approve
the reports and make the appointments,
if they are to be valid and pat into
* At ? ?. fPlkAMA n nnon r hp 1T ff 1A
UptfttUVUi 1UQ1C apjifgw?t o wv w ??.?
doubt that this route will be approved.
The special agent was sent here at the
instance "of Hon. Stanvarne Wilson,
member of congress. Mr. Wilson is
taking a deep interest in postal affairs
and devoted himself with characteristic
energy last winter to the passage of
the act providing for rural free delirery.
It is his object to have the
experiment made at one point in each
county embraced by hie district.

"""the old a>*dersox place.
One of the most interesting old colonial
houses in these parts is the residence
of Mr. Thos. Anderson on Little
Rivar. Mr. Anderson's family is
the fourth generation to ocoapy lbis
handsome old place which was settled
over a hundred and ten vears aso. The
commodious dwelling, built of brick
and stock, is in a fine state of preser- j
vation, the plastering with handsome
ceiling decorations has scarcely a
crack, except that caused by the earthquake
.in 1886, and everywhere there
are evidences of wealth with refinement
and eapicity to enjoy it by those
who have lived there. From a small
court in the rear of the dwelling the
ground slopes away precipitously to a
creek. Built on the side of this slope
is the garden in thre3 terraces, the
walls of which are ten or twelves feet
high, made of granite and beautifully
draped with festoons of Eoglish ivy
and trumpot vines. Oa thw upper
terrace shrubbery and flowers are
growing, the two lower being used for
vegetables. These terraces represent
the work of three genesati^s;- Mr.
Anderson's great grand father having
built the first; his grandfather the
second, and his father the third. A
fourth terrace has been made by the
present occupant on the othe- side of
the hlli, thus perpetuating th* work of
his ancestors. A saciion of the wall
of the first terrace is formed by a hoge
granite boulder, the flit top of which
is level with the (op of the wall. On
this boulder, which forms the floor,
stand* the smoke-house, built of hewn
logs by the great grandfather over a
century ago.. This smoke-house is
used by Mr. Anderson to-day and the
logs are as sound as when pat in the
During the Revolutionary war
Tarleton camped on the plantation and
tbe great grandfather used to slip
home at night to visit-his family, being
very nearly captured on several occasions
by the treachery of his fory
neighbors. Iu 1863 a part of Shermaa'd
army, detained by the rise in
the river, camped near the hcnse, and
Mr. Anderson, like his great grandfather,
a rebel, who was at home on a
short furlough, from his hiding place
saw his barn and stables and gm-house
set on fire, and also saw the Yankee
soldiers crowding iit and ouk of (he
house where his unprotected mother
was. He was afterwards discovered
auti captured. The gin house burned

Breakfasting at 6.45 o'clock Friday
morning, the girls were prepared to
make an early start. At 7.30 the whistle
ot the engine was heard and those
who were going on the trip, as well as
tho?C ^ho were to remain at home,
were assembled at the college gates as
the iOD? line of cars pulled op. Soon
there was a rnsh; each girl seemed to
try to be the first passenger on beard:
each seemed eager to "get ahead" of
the other. Soon all were aboard, and
amidst tha wave of handkersbiefs and
other expressions of farewell, v e took
our departure.

Dinner was served at a reasonable'
hour, and few of us failed to find the
delicous bread, chicken, pickles, bam
and ice cream tsrapting to the appetite.
Mrs. O'Briiu deserves much praise
for the manner in which the got up
! this delicious lunch. A. committee of
! teachers and girls kindly saw that
every one was well served. An appaieuti'y
inexhaustible supply of lemonade
served to quench the tnirst, and
more than supplied the place of a
spring or well.
The afternoon was spent in boat-1
riding, dancing and in various other
^ays. Supper was served at 5 o'clock,
' and at half-past five the shrill whiat[e
of oor train reluctantly called us from
this the scene of a most pleasant day.

Oar train reached Rock Hill about
ten o'clock that night. We were
greeted with expressions of welcomt
by the girls who remained at home.
"Yon jast ought to hare gone!"
"Oh, what a grand time I" were the
remarks which could be heard on every
side until to postpjne the rehearsal of
the day's pleasures till "to-morrow"
i when we would have more time in!
which to tell of them.
The next day upon relating our various
experiences we naturally wished
to hear those of the girls who remained j
at home. They laughingly refused to
satisfy our cariosity. At last, in reply
to the question, "What did you do all

has given ns the satisfactory answer,
