IVKLIJ WORTH KNOWING. iu> you know thal Hie ordinary laure) thal grows along branches and creekB and in ( lumps about the woods ni] over Oeonee will kill cows in short ?nilei ii ibo lea vos and lender branches are eaten bj your rattle? Nm everybody knows it by any means, and there are some who know it rrom sad experience. About two years ago M. T. Hughs, who lives near Walhalla, had a good cow to die. and her dea!li was trace able to the fact thal she had eaten from the laurel bushes along a branch In his pasture. The laurel Wa* dui; up bj tho roots and the renee looked after, and simo that i time he has had no trouble with his; cattle. Hui the other day one of his IMUS nol through the renee and nih hieii at the laurel that grows on the outside of tho pasture. The animal gol very Utile ol' the laurel, but it was sn llb lent to Kill her within a few bou rs. (i, course, we know nothing of the canses thal led t<> the deaths of num bers Ol' the cows thal are reported uvcrj year lo have died suddenly from unknown -noses, hill it is just poss!hie that the cans'- that lias led to I wo of Mr. Hughs's cows dying is the unknown cause ol' the deaths of numerous other cow. in the country where they have access of lau tad thickets. At any rate, it might he well for those who have callie in pastures in which laurel grows lo lake note or these facts as discovered hv Mr - .A. ti. Andrews, of thc Blue Ridge Railway, spent a few moments in Walhalla last week, though lu- did not leave his private ear after reaching town. His pres ence, however, served to put a nu in lier ot' people guessing as to what brou g li I him hero and whether or not his very casual visit had any thin] lo do with tho possilde comple tion DI the Hine Ridge. The Courier is in no posilion to snj .is to that, bill it is a well-known lari that Col. A nd rev. s, who is not president of the Hine Ridge, but also vice president, of the Southern, is n warm friend of the proposition to complete the Hine Ridge on through the mountains, and his visit ran .ii least be taken as an ernest of his interns! in "Capt. Anderson's Or pl m 'at- tho Hine Ridge ls frcquent 1} .. mied. He had nothing to say wit ii reference to his visit, however, nod whatever our people may think concerning this Hying trip is more speculation. The nearest he came to telling anybody anything was the general statement thal he wanted to see personals what is being done in the was o' improvement work, and io "take i look ovor thc line be tween Walhalla and Helton." lhere was :">t much from this \isil to lake hop,- from, bul still then- is hope in even tho display of interest ii? Ihe line. Whenever anything take? shape on the Blue Ridge ex tension project, howover, we may rcs! assured of one thing, and that is that Col. A. H Andrews will be at the bottom Of lt. Had Mr. Andrews bad his way. the Hine Kldi;e would have long ago hoon finished through to Knoxville, and penetrating into th,? groa I Western grain territory and the coal fields nearer home. Prof. W. ll. Hand, who was re- | centl> elected as president ol Ander- j ison College, has been released from bia new position at his own request, which was joined in bj many of tho mos! pro; lincnl educators aol only : of ihM Stale, bul in other States. | Prof. Hand's work In connection with the educational Interests of the State har. been of such a nature as to re r/uire still further service from him, and jt ls In order to carr} on the work begun ny hi.n that he has eon - .? lied to return to the leadership of the State's high school work. The State is to be congratulated upon his return to this branch of the public service, and Anderson has lost a .splendid man from Hie head of their U*BW college. Prof. Hand, however, ran doubtless do more good in his old position than he could have accom plished In the new, and Anderson, along with the balance of the State, ?norld rejoice In the turn taken in the matter. Will you be at the Court House to-morrow (Thursday) evening ot 8 o'clock? You should be, If you ate interested In what is to be done in tho future in the way of securing both electric lights and waterworks. We are going to have the former at an early date, and the sooner we get i he latter the better lt will be. At tend the mooting and let all know where you stand. Take a hand in helping your town. lt may be that yon cannot be of great force, but the presence of each citizen adds just that much to any cause that looks to the betterment of conditions. He among those who are at thts meet ing, and lend a hand. Col. C. ft. I). Hums, of Walhalla, spout esveral days in Cit Ivens re cently. While wo do not intend to take much stock in political matters during UK; approaching campaign, we would modestly suggest that Col. Hums would make the State of South Carolina one of tim best Comptroller (?ener?is she has ever had. If Wal halla will excuse us, Dickens would like to nominate Col. Hums for that positlbl .- Pic kens Sentinel. We ul'l excuso the Sentinel, to be suie. A c ?I more than that, we thank our friend for the nomination, which we most heartily second. Mr. Hums would doubtless make a most effi cient servant of tho public, and it would be Oconee's great pleasure to have opportunity to cast a unani mous ballot for him in the coming election, lt is up to Mr. Burns to "i brow his hat into tho ring." The people of Oconce will do the rest. I A IH Pl,A Y SCHOOL DERATE. Enjoyable Occasion Last Week-Sen ator Verner Present-Lennis. Pair Play.
