Plenty of Corn.
Mr. U. .T. Martin of Donaldsvill",. gathered
, last week five hundred bushels of corn from
thirteen acres ot fresh creek bottom land, fie j

which the corn was made has been a wet bog-j
gy swamp for time out of mind, until two or |
three years aso Mr. Martin ditched it, and i
b now it is as good land as can be found in Ab-1
V beville County. There is no need of going to |

1 For the benellt of your young lady readers,
! we will state that the index or first finger of
the left hand is the one on which to wear the
engagement ring.
How many oi the readers of the Press mid
Hanncr are aware 01 me mci mat mtof
liberty on the American silver dollar is a
representation of a young lady in Philadelphia,
who was selected for that purpose by Mr.
Hurelmrd, director of the United states mint?
The writer knew the young lady's name, but
it has slipped bis memory.
Newly married couples should have their
pictures taken before the honeymoon is full.
Heading the other day that a certain individual
was a self-made man brought to mind a remark
onee made by an editorial friend in another
State, concerning a distinguished (now
extinguished) carpet-bagger, ik-ing told that
the said c. b? r was a self-made man, he said,
"Well, I'm glad to hear it.; for it. relieves the
Almighty of a terrible responsibility."
It is broadly intimated that one of Due
West's most popular and talented daughters
will soon be united in marriage to a young
gentleman from a neighboring county. If we
had our life insured we might venture to tell
you what the initials of the young lady's name
spell.
We regret to record that Mr. Wm. Bonner, of
the Prenbylcrimi force, is still conlined to nis
room by sickness. He has had a long and Hard
siege, and it is to be hoped will soon be restored
to health.
Mr. It. J. Ilood, eldest son of Professor Hood
of this place, has been appointed postal clerk
011 the Richmond and Danville Hall road.
Children's Day was duly observed at the
Baptist church in this place, notwithstanding
the weather was very unpropilious. Tho contributions
from the little ones amounted to
about three dollars, which is very good when
we take into consideration the unfavorable
weather and the further fact that the school is
very weak in numbers.

that one of their party was so "completely
"strapped"' before reaching home that he ottered
to sell his pocket-book for fifteen cents.
Mr. Henry Hoyd, who was a student in Erskine
College last year, and will be remembered
as tiie young man who is so badly crippled as
to neeessiUite liis being drawn around in a little
wagon by a goat, is now teaching school in
Newberry county.
Quite a pleasant little party assembled at
Mr. Robert Pratt's on Thursday evening of last
week to witness the marriage of Mr. Thonnis
1'. Henderson, of Anderson, and Miss Laura 10.
Pratt. The Rev. J. 8. Jordan performed the
ceremony which made two hearts beat as one.
One by one our fair young ladies are being captured
and carried otf, and?and?well, our best
wishes go with all of them.
Mr. Robert Cochran, one of the most affable
and popular of our young gentlemen, is visiting
relatives and in the city of Anderson.
If reports are true as to former visits of
Robert to that place, the salaries of the post......
linn inwl Anrlnrvrm will lif
largely increased by the extra number of postage
stamps they will be compelled to cancel.
The Baptist congregations at this place and
Donalds have secured the services of the ltev.
(J. H. Carter, now of Ninety-Six, as their pastor
for the coming year, vicc Dr. Maylield, resigned.
Mr. Carter is a young man of much
promise, and our Baptist brethren are to be
congratulated on their choice, particularly so
as Mr. Carter will devote his whole time to the
two churches.
Our people without regard to sect deeply regret
that circumstances compelled the resignation
of the Hev. Dr. MayluMd. pastor of the
Kaptist church, and will greatly miss his genial
companionship and excellent sermons.
Mr. James I'ruit, a well-to-do farmer who resales
about eight miles above here, near the
line between this and Anderson counties, is reported
to be in a very peculiar and at the same
time critical condition. About ten daysago he
felt a slight pain in one of his hands, which
gradually increased, and the hand began to
swell. Physicians were called in, but the swelling
could not be checked, and has now extended
into the arm and the skin seems to be peeling
oir. Near the wrist there is an eruption
from which a substance of very unpleasant
odor oozes out. Those who have seen Mr. I'ruitt
say that a similar case has never come within
their knowledge. It is thought that he cannot
long survive.
We learn from the newspapers that the
South is to be raided by detachments from the
Salvation Army. We can manage to worry
along with .Sam Jones, the army worm, Sam
Small and prohibition, but from the Salvation
Army may the Rood Lord deliver us.
The Germans constitute the very best element
of our foreign population. They are
honqst, industrious and thrifty, and moot every
obligation that rests upon them as citizens.
They go into our waste places, where Americans
would starve to death, ana in a few years
cause them to blossom sls the rose. It is a rare
thing to see a German pauper or n German
criminal, as they are peaceable and law-abiding
and seldom llirure in our courts in any capacity.
For the most part our German citizens
acquire property, anu this causes them to bo
interested in good government and to uphold
the laws of the land. They have aided greatly
in developing our country, and we cannot afford
to abuse them simply because they do not
think as we do on all points.
The invasion of the South by the Salvation
Army leads us to remark that the leaven of
fanaticism is rapidly spreading throughout
this section, and that unless it is chocked we
shall soon enjoy the distinction of being what
we were accustomed in ante bellum days to ae-1
cuse New England of being?the most intolerant
portion ot the country.
The Intermediate Celebration of the Philomathcan
Society of Erskine College will come

Miss Sallie Kennedy went down on Long
Cane last Wednesday to attend the marriage
of her brother, Mr. J. C. Kenndy, who was
united that evening to Miss Leila vvardlaw.
It is intimated that President Cleveland will
favor Woman Suffrage in his annual message
to Congress. Well, if the "dear creatures"
should be clothed with the right of sutl'rage,
and they should be as successful in soliciting
votes as they arc in soliciting money for missionary
purposes, we will soon have to reverse
the present order ef things-let the women till
the offices and the "bucks" stay at home and
nurse, the young ones.
We frequently hear from the pulpit allusions
to "this unfriendly world." The writer's pretty
extended experience leads him to conclude j
that if the world is unfriendly to a man it is
more the man's faul tthan that of the world. |
We are aware that it is customary for cynics!
1 to paint the world in very sombre colors and i
; to denounce it as cold and uncharitable; but
| we imagine that if a man act well his part lie |
will find it full of ready, willing helpers. It Is j
' a very good world we live in, certainly the
: best one that any of us have ever seen, and in [
our opinion the best that a large majority of
us ever will see.
Miss Leona Blake of Greenwood is one of
the most accomplished pupils of the Female
I College. While seated In her room the other
I evening, as the sweet strains of "Nearer, My
i God, to Thee," proceeding from a cornet in the
hands of a skiflful player, were wafted to her;
ear through the open window, she penned the
i following impromptu apostrophe to that grand |
tune, without any thought that the lines would !
appear in print. The little slip of paper on j
which the words were written was given to a 1
college mate, and through the latter found its
way into your correspondent's hands:
The night is calm, and not a sound

whooping along," he said, "at tlie rate of three '
I in lies an hour, and t lie old train was weaving i
terribly. I expected every moment to see my ]
hones protruding through my skin. Passengers
were rolling from one of the ear to tlio'
other. I hold on like grim death to the arms J
of mj- seat. Presently we settled down to;
i quiet running?at least I managed to keep my j
j hat on, and my teeth didn't chatter. The conductor
was in hailing distance. I looked up

and said,'We arc going a little smoother,

j While strolling around town on one of the;
' beautiful days of last week we saw two chil-l
dren, apparently five and six years old, play- j
jingon the sidewalk. The elder wore panta-j
! loons while the younger still clung to infantile ;
costume. Stopping, we addressed the hoy'
with pantaloons: "Are you hoth boys?"'j
| "No, sir," was the answer. "I'm one, and

Pursuant to agreement the corporators of
the Port Uoyal & Greenville Railroad met at c
this place on the i:?th at 9 o'clock A. M. Col. ^
James McCullough, of Greenville county, was "
elected Chairman, and Mr. James Rogers, Jr., *'
Secretary. The following corporators in per- 11
son or by proxy answered to their names: s
James McOullough, A. R. Williams, M. K. An- n
seljT.lt. L. Wood, Cullen Lark, C. C. Law,
James H. Rice and \V. Scott Allen. The -sub- j
seription lists were canvassed and ?>1.000 ofi."
bon'i fide subscriptions were reported. Of["
course there were other-amounts not included j (\
in the above, which were conditional. About i i.
CO) shares were represented and voted. An j
election for officers was hold and resulted as y
follows: IL 1'. Hammot, President; \\\ J.
Kirk, Vice President; E. A. Smyth, James v
McCullough, T. \V. Chiles, G. T* Jackson, \V. ^
Scott Allen, F. A. Connor, W. J. Huiet, L. M. u
Moore and s. R. Humbert, Directors. Subse<]uontly
the Hoard elected F.M. Pope Soercta- 1
ry and Treasurer, and it was resolved to go to ?
work at once. The route from Greenville to b
Johnstf>n has boon decided upon. One instal- 0
inent- of the stock will be due and willed for
at once, and before Christmas dirt wil be brok- V
en. It is estimated that three or four bun- *f
dred stockholders ana menus 01 ine enterprise werehore
last l'"riday. Our citizens, much to ']
their credit, throw open their houses and en- sl
tertsUnod the visitors. The people of Ninety- P
six are delighted, of course. The organization * '
is all tluit we could ask. It is useless to speak
of these gentlemen personally. We are satisfied
that 110 bettor board of otliecrs could be
elected by any corporation, not a single "dead n
heart," all working, enterprising business men,
and now we are satisfied that the building of n
this road will not be left to "our posterity." o
We were too much engrossed in railroad |n
matters to go to the Kair. A great many of it,
our people were in attendance and Ninety- p
Six earned oil' many prizes. Mr. E. Y. Shop- j
pard, on three-year old Norman stallion, 1st ti

numerous j)remiuins on cattle, bogs, chickens,
and on butter. Maj. R. A. Grillln on colts, cat- (,
tie and hogs, and on tine crops. Mr. J. Met), j
Kinard on Holstein bull and heifer, and grade jj
cattle. They all agree in pronouncing the ji
Slate Fair a success, and say it is not as easy j l(
to take premiums now as it lias boon ; that the j r)
State is full of line stock and they arc being U,
brought to tiie front. v
Our Hoard of Directors assure us that we | ^
may get ready for a railroad banquet by the j,
1st of December, 1NS6, and then we want all j
of our friends to come and rejoice with us. j,
We will give them a genuine, hearty welcome. t|
Capt. Callison, of Kdgetieid, was at the rail- a
road meeting last Friday. The Captain is full e
of railroad, and by the time we get to Fruit I,,
Hill, we hope he and Capt. Mitchei will be ,,
there with the Augusta and Newberry road. t|
Now is the chance for Abbeville; if they jj
want an outlet let them go to work and build .]
their road out toCokesbury and connect with ^
the Atlantic arid Northeastern. This is des- v
tined to be the most, important trunk line of
railroad in the country. EAST END. y

the make-up isalso neat and admirable. In its

Columbia Register.
There seems to be no end t< |the enterprise of:
lie Mountain City. We hear of a brand new
Diet prise which, as we are informed, is aljady
fairly afoot, though not ninety days
Id. Tnis is a scheme to take up the old Port
loyal and Greenville unexpired charier and
uild a narrow-gauge and from Greenville via
elzer's Mills to Minety-Six, and thence to
ohnston, on the Columbia and Augusta road;
tiunce in the air for the const. We are in>rmcd
that ?70,OUO or ?80,000 have been al-j
pndy pledged to the t-cheme.
TliiH schemc will hold water, if Greenville
as t he hardihood to undertake it in dead j
urnest. There can be little doubt that the L
aad will look Idr a connection with Charles>n.
It will be seen that the air-line from | r
ohnston to Charleston passes through ,
ranchvllle, 129 miles in length. But by de
eet ing to Orangeburg, and thence by air line
) Charleston, the distance is*!31 miles. The
^ til Ka t lin
JUie llU'OUgll Ul'UIlgl'UUrg, nidi, ?vm m?w
etter one. But another route from Johnston, /
la.Hani well, would lm KM miles to Charles?n.
Between the Barnwell and the Orange- J
urg routes, with five miles difference only in s
istance, there seems to be a great advantage
i favor of the Barnwell route. At Barnwell
i?e line would be 88 miles from Charleston,
nd passing through Beaufort's Bridge, Itivrs'
Bridge, Buekiiead and Wnterboro, 80
liles. But at Barnwell the line would be 81
liles from Savannah, passing diiectly
uroiich Allendale, Lawtonviile, ltohertville
'urysburg. By adopting the Barnwell route, 1
lien, Charleston and Savannah both would j
e taken on the line, and Charleston and Sa- 1
annul) both would be forced to contribute to
tie scheme. Or, should Charleston refuse,
avannah would certainly take it up nt the
iddlnc of tlie Black Swamp. Lawtouville
nd Allendale communities, largely her parous,
and who are able to build the road from
larn well to Savannah themselves, Savannah (
onffning her contribution to crossing the rivr
other door and assisting In building the
r>ad between Barnwell and Greenville. So
ir as Charleston is concerned, it is hard to sec i
hy she would turn her back on a route
carting Colleton and Barn well, giving her a
aluable cotton and lumber trade and a route i
f 213 miles to the mountains, and, with a
ne extended 38 miles from Barnwell (o Auusta,
and air-line narrow-gauge route from
harlcston to Augusta on the original old line t
rst sought between Charleston and Augusta.
Now let us see what this w hole sheme of
[>au wouiu cost, x1 rom oreenvmu u# jxhu-ji
ell we see 11 line of 126 miles, from Hum well ,
i> Charleston via "NValterboro (.K) miles, from |1
turnwell to Savannah via Allendale ?S4 nnies, i
rom Barnwell to Augusta US miles, costing',
ny 54.000 per mile and footing up a total cost j1
f $1,352,(KM. The low cost taken is forlltled by |S
lie fact that a large portion of the whole
mite would require scarcely any grading,
nd the very best limber could be Rot on the
cry roadbed at the very lowest possible cost.
this low total cost, we would have a Greenille
and Charleston road of 2I(> miles; a
irecnvlllc and Savannah road of 210 miles, a
buries ton and Augusta of 12s miles, a ttaaunah
and Augusta road of 122 miles, and a
ireenville and Augusta road of IW miles,
uverlng a milcige all told of S-10 miles, wlililf
utlttS miles of track, and greatly shortening
lie distances between all points save from
irecnvlllc to Augusta, which would be eixht
liles further than by the (Jrecnville and Auustiand
Knoxville roads.

f routes, we see the present routes stand:!]

er Carolina lines have a cost of about $5,000,- i
JO; showing an aggregate of S15.0U0.000 as
gainst ?i,352.0J0 for the narrow-gauge system
oove outlined. It the above outlined Ureenille
narrow-gauge system would fail to pay
andsomely, we arc at a loss to see how any
md in the State or the South can pay a cent
liirty percent, earning on the cost of the

What is to prevent such n road from being j1
nill we cannot see, if Greenville goes at it I
Mlh her accustomed vim and pluck. And 2
nee built, it will revolvtionize the traflic
Immghout the State. 1
Of course we may be counting chickens be>re
they arc fairly hatched, but the whole
i-heme looks so plausible that we cannot fail

Hio believed, three years ago, that, we would
ce the system of roads in the nonheastein

fact? Things move in our day. and
ircenviilc and Spartanburg have shown a
