Mr. Jas. T. Latimer went to Abbeville Mon> day on business. Rev. J. L. Daniel went to Abbeville to meet his family who bad been with relatives in Laurens for about two weeks. Mr. Herbert Brooks, HIkb School assistant Id tnis place, for tbe next scholastic year, came in Tuesday and bas sloce been forming tbe acquaintance of bis future patrone and others. Miss Sallle Giles of Anderson came down Wednesday morning and has since been wltb the family of her uncle Mr. Wm. Moore. Some of the o'a soldiers of Co. I, Htb Reg jmeniOIS. U voiuniers mei uere uu iueic day and made the necessary preparations at to stand, tables and seats for tbe reunion oc Thursday. Tbe ground selected near Milcb el's spring: was tbe most suitable place foi such an occasion to be found, as to sbad< w&t6r etc. Mrs.' D. M. Lipscomb of Ninety Six, accom pan ltd by Miss Louise Murphy of Anderson, who had spent sometime with friends in Col umbla, came Wednesday evening. Hon. A. C. Latimer aud his daughter, Mist Anna Latimer of Beiton came over Wednes day. Mrs. Will Mattlson of Deans was with hei sister, Mrs. A. V. Barnes for a day or two las! Dr.J. C. Harper and Mr. B. A. Davis o Starr came down Wednesday and remained till Friday. Rev. Foster Spter left Thursday mornlns for Central where he went to take charge oi the High School at that place, having beec elected principal. Thursday was a big day for our town. More interest wassboynln the reunion of Co. I 14th Regiment, S. C. V. than any of its predi< cessors. On the above morning, early, the people began to come In along all roads cen terlng In this place, and by 10 a. m. a crowd supposed by Judges, to be about 500 bad eath ered at'and around the stanl. Dr. J. B. Mose ley, master of ceremonies called the meeting to order and Rev. J. L. Daniel opened it in an impressive prayer. Then Gen. M. L Bonhaoi one or the most prominent and distinguished lawyers at the Anderson Bar. was Introduced, Although be was loo young to take part in our little unpleasantness" of I860, yet hit honored father did, and tbe son had learned from him some of the lessons taught in that bard school, and bad bad lmpianted within him a lr?nv nntrlntltim uu tuoil aa on Avalted opinion of ibe sacritlcrs made, and tbe hardships endured by those who took part in tbe struggle in wblcb tbe gathering of the day was commemorative, aud naturally our people expected great things of him in tbe way of a speech to the old soldiers. and they were not disappointed. He is a fluent speaker, a line orator, and his address was such an one aB was looked for, and such an one as was most pleaslDg to his bearers. The General is highly esteemed by all of our people and they would be glad to have blm with us oftener. The next Speaker was Hon. I. H. McCalla who although not Informed of tbe expectation that a speech would be looked for from, him, till two or ihreedays before the meeting, yet he discharged the duty in a highly creditable way to himself, and pleasing to all present. Neither was be, because of his age, "at tbe front," but he too, is fully aware of those troublous tlmea, and la fully alive to the - ILL BLAST LTRADE Jy and careful buying my efforts ha\ >s, and I am now ready for Fall cuj complete, while in other lines sorr It is now the beginning of secor and after studying your wants v\ sition to better serve you than ev< jntinue to be "QUICK SALES AN JVE AND LET LIVE." rn markets I changed my plans an cheap clothing.

R, R; Hemphill of Abbeville. He as Is well known is tbe able Editor of the Abbeville Medium. He Is at. all times prepared and at home before a crowd. Although but a boy In years at the out break of tbe war, being fired by that military spirit, that spirit of home defence, wblch found a lodgement In tbe breasts of all classes and sizes of our people In 'CI shoulder, ed bis musket, and weDtto the front, and vallently did his part In contending for tbe right. His experiences during four years eminently fitted him to fully realize the hardships of those years and beget in him a fellow leellng, a kindly sympathy for his still living comrades of the days long gone by. . There Is no man In the State better equipped for an occasion like the one of last Thursday than Gen. Hemphill. His speech was very refreshing to the remaining members of Co. I " who were present, as he remembered and related remeuisoenops of the active and trying ' nart taken by tbe Hth Regiment of which Co. 1 I was a part, when unflinching courave aua endurance were called for, and was alike en' tertaining to all of his other hearers. The day ; bas not reached us, and it is to be hoped that | ; it never will, when tbe gallant deeds of our 1 soldiery, of'C0-'65 will fall to stir the hearts of the generations to come with tbe greatest Interest and beget a spirit of emulation, which ' 1 shall culminate in the loftiest patriotism. Each of the speakers very feelingly referred to tbe gradually thinning ranks of the old ' ' veterans, and called for a more generous res1 ponse upon the part of the State, to the In creuHiug whlius us me >e?i3 pu uy, ui ioo ?ur" vlvors of "ttie Lost Cause." It Is a shame to I this great, proud, rich State, that the teropor1 al condition of at least some of the defenders of our homes Is so pitiable. This ought not ' to be. This last is not said because of lnteres1 ted or selfish motives, but through sympathy ' for those in need. At the close of Oen. Hemphill's speech the ' chairman cordially invited all of the Confed' erate veterans present to repair to the table, and partake of the dinner provided. We ; went and found a table loaded with every 1 1 thing to make up a first class dinner, other t tables were equally well loaded for all others ( | present. 1 Twelve carcases were well barbecued by 1 Mr. Joe Brown, Manager. i ' Every crowd that came, large or small, i ' brought a box or basket well filled with every 1 thing calculated to tempt and satisfy all appetites. The contents of several boxeB and I ' baskets were not touched. , > After the large white crowd was well filled, ' the negroes present, about 25 or 30 were given ! the remainder. I ' This report would be Incomplete without ' making mentlonjof one, to whom, In an espec' lal manner, the credit of the splendid suocesH ' of the occasion Is due, while others took an | ' active interest in the approacblug reunion, yet they are free to acknowledge that he to ' ' whom allusion is made, deserves the greater * 1 praise. Mr. E. W. Harper is the man. he Is \ the oldest living son of M?J. H. H. Hurper 1 who was elected hv acclamation ns the first 1 Captain of Co. I. He contributed liberally of I Ms time and means to the gr<nd purpose of i making of the lale reunion of Co. I, a time of great pleasure not only to its few remaining members, but also to all others who might | honor the occasion with their presence. After the feast was over the crowd was in- 1 vlted to the stan-1 and Hon. I. H. McC'alla In a few complimentary words Introduced Hon A. C. Latimer who made an Interesting and Instructive polltlcsl speech. He Ik well post- . ed as to the public ciuestlons of the day and was given marked attention. Sheriff C. J. Lyon of Abbeville was present < on that day shaking hands with his many | friends present. , Messers J. K. Watson, R J. McNIll and Rob Mars of Mt. Oarroel were with us for u day or two taking In the reunion. ] Mrs. Joseph Brltt and ht&son, Dr. J. B. i BrIU, of Wideman's were f<r%: several days with the family of Mr. T. B.
