Conditions in Cantonment at ?1
Paso Little Different From
Those at Styx,
The State.
In Camp at Fort Bliss, near El
Paso, Texas, Aug. 12.?The First
South. Carolina regiment of infantry
under command of Col. E. M. Blythe
reached the border yesterday and
went into camp on the mesa seven
miles out of El Paso and something
over a mile beyond Fort Bliss. The j
mAfi nut to work at once clear-1
lug the camp site of mesquite, sage
brush and cactus and within a short '
?pace of time the'brush had all been j
cut away and the t?nts pitched.
The first section of the regiment
reached E! Paso about 10 o'clock yesterday
(Friday) morning and were
taken out to the camp site by a
switch engine. They commenced
immediately to make camp. The second
section under >Maj. Spratt arrived
about two ihours after the first and
tile third section under Col. Blythej
reached camp between 5 and 6 o'clocK.
United States regulars and National
Guardsmen from all parts of the
country are encamped in and around
El Paso. It being estimated that
there are 35,000 now encamped here
and 25,000 more are expected within
the next few days. The El Paso district
is a part of the Southern department
under command of Maj. Gen.
? -irw^oLrinV TTHmaton.
Hills or ^fountains.
El Paso is set at the foot of somej
ftigh Sills, mountains, some call them.
"The hills are absolute# bare of vegelatioi
resembling somewhat the sand
<dunes on the coast. The absence of
trees is the most notable feature of
this country and that with the sage
brush, cactus^ mesquite, and alkali
dust, givfcs "omething of the idea of

The range of hills encircling El
Paso continue up beyond where the
X metto boys are located. The high
range of bare hills to the west make
a picturesiuc background for the
camp. From this range of ihills down
ivtJie Rio Grange the country is
aevol and the camp c.te i3 therefore
admirably located.

of the camp are all that could be desired.
The site is well selected.
Only One Difference.
The camp site is a good deal like
that at Styx except for the lack of j
shade. Of course rain is almost an
unknown quanity in this country end
for that reason there will be more
dust but even here the Palmetto bpys

Col. W. K. Wright, the commander
of the brigade composed of the two
outh Carolina regiments and the
regiment from Florida, was on the

-Col. Wright greeted Col. BIythe cordially
and they together went over
the camp and saw that everything was
done properly. Gapt. Young, Col.
"Wright's adjutant, gave Capt. Mahon,
Co 1. Blythe's adjutant, information
about the details which had been attended
to and which were to be done.
Col. Wright is in command of the
Twenty-third infantry of the regular
army, and ranks high in the service.
It is considered a splendid thing that
lie will command the brigade.

First South Carolina infantry,

t>een made to ihave the mail promptly
delivered in the camp.
2Cot Bad Weather.
Xtoe weather here so far lias been
ideal The higest temperature yesterday
was 92 and the lowest last
nigiht was 71. There is very little huin
the air ihere which makes
it much cooler than in South Carolina j
at the same temperature. Last night
was a good introduction for the men
011 the border. The moon was shining
bright and the air was balmy. It was
necessary to crawl under blankets before
day this morning.
Capt. R. . Heyward's company, the
Smyth Rifles of Pelzer, did guard
duty last night The machine gun^
company under Capt. Ramer went on |
guard this afternoon.
Rations were issued to the men today,
they having subsisted on travel
rations during the trip out here. And
rhp farp on the trin was solendid,
everybody even looking better when
the trip was finished than when they
entrained at Styx.
The men spent today putting the
camp into shape and straightening up
things after the long ride from South
Carolina. They are glad to be here
and already have the appearance of
veterans. SA11 along the route where
the different sections stopped the peo
pie, and* especialy the girls, complimented
the Palmetto boys on their
fine appearance and the way in which
they conducted themselves. There
were several places- wihere - the trains
stopped and the men were given
greetings by the people but at no
place was there the slightest disorder
or even any suggestive remarki.

oil the Palmetto State.
The First arrived in camp, with
1,006 enlisted men and 49 officers.
Six enlisted men and two officers.are
absent and will join the regiment
Camp Already Clean.
The camp was as clean as a whistle
this afternoon. The mesquites, cactus
and sage brush had all been cut and
collected and hauled off in trucks.
There have been some horned toads
and sand lizards seen in camp but
nothing worse so far.
Lieut. Col. J. B. Allison or the second
South Carolina was a visitor in
camp today. Col. Allison is ta native
of York, a graduate of the Citadel
ard was with the Sixth infantry whe:?.
!he was named by Gov. Manning as
lieutenant colonel of the Seconl
South Carolina.
Gen. Bell, who is in command of
the El Paso district, was a visitor in
the First regiment camp this morning.
Very few of the men recognized
him, but he walked over the cam?
and took in the general situation.
The Pennsylvania troops, 12,000
strong, are encamped just across the
railroad from the South Carolina
tioops. A great many of them have
come over and extended greetings to
the Palmetto 'boys. They are a fine
body of troops and comprise a division
under their own major general.
The South Carolinians are encamped
in a triangle formed by two railro3ds.
They are about seven miles
from El Paso and beginning at 1
o'clock each afternoon shuttle trains
qrft run to and from EI Paso every
hour for a round trip of 25 cents.

Tn f/?mn in the El Paso Patrol Dis
trict on the Texas Border, Aug. 15.?
There have been many interesting
things for the South Carolina soldier.;
to see on the trip from Camp Moore
below Columbia to El Paso, Texas
But no part of the journey furnished
as many surprises as the long ride
of 820 miles across the great Lone
Star State.
* j*
The First regiment enierea xexaa
at Texarkana, a splendid city about
the size of Anderson, which lies hail"
in Texas and half in Arkansas. There
the farming country is good and the
girls iare pretty. Dallas and Fort
Worth are big towns, modem and
progressive, and both over 100,000 inhabitants.
From Fort Worth on
through the State over the Texas &
Pacific railway *he country is roll; .g

Mesauite. oage brush r.nd stubble
make up the ;e?'ration and the j.rincipal
industry is ^att.le. Great herds
were seen. One railroad man said
that the Hereford was the best beef
cattle. At sever ti places fine herds
or Hereford were passed.
The pnairie dogs, jack rabbits and
the old familiar South Carolina rabbits
were seen in large numbers in
the western part of the State.
The Mexicans live in large numbers
all along the way and increase as the
border is reached. All the laborers
are Mexicans and they are very much

the movies. Friday morning the train J
passed a typical Western town with
its frame dwelling and old time
saloon pictured in all stories ot West
ern life. The guardsmen hiave seen
cowboys, ranchmen and all the characters
of the West.
Just beyond Van Haren. about 13
miles from the border, the boys sighted
on the left of the railroad a Texas
ranger r.ith his outfit These intre*
pid watchmen are the terrors of |
Mexicans and have done fine duty in!
guarding the border. I
At Sweetwater, which is on th"!
edge of the long monotonous alkali j
district, the men detrained for a few
minutes' exercise and the band
serenaded the inhabitants who had
??'thered at the station. The people
ai ialong the route were very friendK
and the girls appeared to be "struck"
cn the Palmetto privates. They
wouldn't have much to do with tin
officers but "made up" at once with
tte men and there was much exchanging
of addresses and promises of cor?
? * il. - -
respondence. Like tne men 01 tue sw
the South Carolina. boys found sweethearts
in every town, and especially
i-i every Texan town. And they ar-*>
well worth knowing?good lookin
and attractive in every way.
The elevation toward the border
gradually increased until at Allamor;
ii-. is 4,555 feet above the sea level.
One interesting sight at this point
was the little Mexicans. Several j
families live in houses very much like
negro tenements and the inmates evi-j
ccntly do not ha<*c much use footer.
Prom Allamore the road descends
somewhat. At Cerro Gorao trie xraia i
switched over to the Southern PacifL I
and followed that line into El Paso. |
For some distance out of B1 PasD,1
the train ran close by the Rio Grande |
close enough to hurl a roek\into Mexico.
The train passed through several
encampments of soldiers who
are guarding the border. Most of
them were National Guardsmen from
Wv-ffhor-n states.
Alkali dust covered and colored
everything and everybody long before
the border -was reached. I

River in That Vicinity Rises Only

The State.
Anderson, Aug. 14.?High water on
the Seneca river as a result of tin
breaking of the Lake Toxaway daaa
did not do any damage in this vicinity.
The owners of Portman Skoals
power plant drained the pond above
the dam and prepared for iheavy waters.
The river rose only three feet.
which is nothing more than tihe result
that comes from a heavy rain -up
the watershed. The power plant has
been operating all day long and carrying
full capacity. Large quanti
ties of timber and trees, which ha.l
been pulled up by the roots and debris
have been floating down the
river. All extra forces have been recalled
from the power dam and
water is receding.
