Some Stories of 1tlhe TownM In
portslice nnd Glory in the Lonj
Anderson Daily Mail.
Those of the younger generatio
who are familiar with the quiet litti
village of Pendleton at the preson
time can scarcely realize ita former ini
portanco and prosperity.
Far back in the dim regions of th(
past this dull, quaint town was th(
center of reflnement, wealth and cul
ture. Surrounded by a line agricul
tural section, the farm lands afforde<
to the wealthy slave-holders ample op,
portunity for the successful cultivation
of various products. Along its rura]
streets echoed the footsteps of famous
and gallant men, whose names now
adorn the pages of history, and noble,
beautiful women, whose gentle, re.
fined natures and domestic qualities
rendered them capable of dispensing
the hospitality for which this section
was famed.
Perhaps our readers who chance to
give the present town a casual glance
would be interested to know for fu
ture reference that Pendleton was once
a large district, comprising what is
now the counties of Oconce, Pickens
and Anderson, covering an area of 60
or 70 miles square. It was obtained
from the "'croxee Indians in 1777,
but the set. .ment was deferred until
after the Revolutionary war of 1783.
The district was named in honor of
Judge Henry Pendleton, a native of
Virginia and one of the judges of the
court of common pleaR of South Caro
lina. He was a nephew of Judge Ed
imuud Pendleton of Virginia, born in
Culpeper County in 1750 and (lied in
Greenville County in 1787. le volun
- 1eored in the first regiment organized
in Virginia and served under General
Greene in that State. At the close of
the war he settled in South Carolina
and was elected judge of the law
court. He originated the county
court act which was passed in 1785,
was one of the three judges appointed
to revise the laws of the State, and
was a member of the constitutional
convention of 1788.
The first court house at Pendleton
was built of logs, located in the edge
of the town on a beautiful branch.
The only trace of the spot now visi
ble is a slightly elevated grassy knoll,
near which the school children are
wont to assemble on festive occasions.
Toward this historic spot the lawyers
wended their way from all parts of
the immense district to attend court.
It is said that the original Bible upon
which the oaths were sworn is now
preserved in the archives.of the new
court house at Anderson.
There are very many points of inter
eat 14' and around Pendleton connected
with the remote past.
Here is to be found, situated upon
an eminence, "Lowther Hall," bought
by Lord Lowther of England at a cost
of $10,000 for a shooting bjx on ac
count of the large quantity of game in
the county. This building commands
a magnificent view of the stately Blue
Ridge mountains.
Further down the street we come to
the time worn cottage of John Miller,
well known in connection with the
famuous Junius lett,era. John Miller
was a native of Lomdon, andi was one
of the part,ies who ownedl the Evening

he settled. He died in 1809 and was
b buied at the Old Stone church. He

citizens, Hie was the foundler of the
Pendleton Weekly Messenger, the first
paper published in the State outside of
Charleston and Columbia.
Col. Francis Kinloch Hlugor was
2, once a resident of this town, and his
life is interesting in connection wit h
the history of his attempt to rescue
:1 General Lafayette from the pr[isou of
Olmutz, in Austria. The attempt
failed, and he was himself imprisoned
eight months, and was only released
- upon- the condition that lie would
leave the country never to return.
Another feature of interest at P'en

o The first settlers of Pendleton were
t from Virginia and North Carolina,
- and among them General Pickens and
General Anderson of the Revolution
ary war.
Later on settlers came from Vir
nia in larger numbers ; also from
harleston, among whose names we
notice the Piuckneys, lugers, Prin.
gles, Norths, Gibbes, Stuarts, (ail.
lards, Cheves, Elliots, Bees, Stephens,
I'rioleaus, Trescotts, Smiths, Haynes,
Warleys, Adgers, and many others.
Notably among the first settlers
from that grand old State, Virginia,
were the Earles, Ilarrisons, Le'vises,
Taliaferros, Calhouns, Taylors, Sloans,
Whitners, Robinsons, Burts, Kilpat
ticks, and others whose names are
still prominent among the present resi
dents of Anderson County. This
Piedmont section of our beloved State
is fast growing in favor and leading
in the various arts and industries,
which isrequisite to the full develop.
ment of her many resources.
Continuing the past hiatory of this
noted section, we stroll in imag;nation
to secluded spots. From a magnili
cently wooded hill can be seen lower
down Seneca river near Pendleton the
spot where General Pickens concluded
the tieaty with the Cherokee Indians
in 1783, by which the lands were ceded
to South Carolina. On a battle
ground on the Eighteen Mile creek,
between this historic spot and our
village of seven hills, many unique
Indian relics have been found irt,m
time to time.
The Old Slone church, which lies
three miles from here, deserves more
than a passing notice, but this historic
and sacred spot is well known far and
wide. .v o more sacred landmark
stands in the upper part of South Car
olina. There on old weather-stained
tablets we find the names of family
trees whose branches are spread far
and wide over many States of the
Union,. such as Pickens, Whitner,
Maxwell, Lewis, Sloan, Benson, Kil
patrick, Reese, John Miller the print
er, Dickson, an:i many others, all 1
worthy and honorable citizens.
Near by on one side of the cemetery
is the grave of Thomas Bynum, who
fell in the memorable duel with Hon.
B. V. Perry, of Greenville, which took
place in 1833 during nullification
times. The grave was formerly
marked by two magnificent pines that
seemed to stand as lonely sentinels
above the quiet spot for no loving
hand has ever raised a marble shaft to
perpetrate the last resting place.
There is a legend (we give it as such)
that these pines grew from two poles
upon which the body was borne from
the wagon to the grave, and A ere
placed at the head and foot of the
grave and forthwith took dep root.
This is given upon the best authori
ty, and we leave the sequel to the
thoughtful visitor to the spot at the
present time. This Old Stone church
was first built of logs in 1791. In 1802
it was built of stone. In the church
yard lies the remains of ive of the
ministers of this church.

The Columbia 8tate, Nov. 17.
Out of the 550 and odd miles of
public roads in ltichlaiid County only
about 100 miles yet remain to be put
in lirst-class condition. During the
past year and at present almost every
road in the county has been placed in
the elegant condition which has elicited
so much admiration from the experts
who have inspected them. The work
now is being prosecuted with great
activity and the results could hardly
be more gratifying.
The Camden road and its branches
has since January 1 of this year been
worked to within two miles of the
county line. This remaining short
distance will not occupy the time of
the chaingang more than two weeks
longer. The work on the Ancrum
Feriy road has been carried to the 19
mile post. About three miles more
will have to be overhauled. A new
road has been cut from the Camden
Pike to the Two Notch road. This is
for the purpose of a short cut and is
about two and one-half miles in
The Leesburg road, which '.avcs the
Garner's Ferry road between the live
and six mile posts and joins the old
road from Wateree to Camden, has 1
been completed and is in beautiful con
dition. All the cross roads near East
over have been worked and the T wo
Notch road is in good condition up to 1
the twelve mile post.
Almost all of the roads in the upper 1
part of the county are model pikes ex
.:ept the Monticello road. This is not
io good as the others, but is being put
n shape now by a chaingang. 'Tlie
sylum road has been worked to a c
oint beyond Killians. 'j
A bridge and some filling is now be- 1
ng put in by a gang at Crane creek on t
,he Winnsboro road. Another gang r
s working on the new road from the 1
amden pike to the Spea's creek
.hureh. This gang will be transferred s
o the Bluff road as soon as it is pos- s
ible. This road is an old one and l
hough it is often worked constant t
are has to be taken of it. The soil a
n the vicinity is not well fitted for i
oad making, there being neither sand t
ior clay in abundance. An effort will i
)e made to carry these two materials i
,o the road and to bu'ld it up so as to f
itand travel permanently.
The equipnient for road making is m
iow more adequate than ever before. c
rwo chainganga, numbering about 20 r
risoners each, and an additional gang I
)f 10 men are kept constantly at work. I
rhe health and physical condition of I:
he men leaves little to be desired, r
heir food, clothing, accommodations, a
3tc., being very comfortable. Good E
3are is taken of them and within the
nomory of the present county supervi
for only o,e convict has been lost
brough death from illness. The
gangs cost the county about $10,000 a
ear and are well worth the price, as '1
,he statistics lately exploited by the
road-making experts in the South show
that the cost of convict labor for the
urposo is far less than that of a hired
orce. t
About $2,000 worth of new machi- 1
acry has been purchased (hiring the C
past year, of which sum the cost of I:
.hree new road machiines and two t
aham dump wagons is the greater part. 1
1'he equipment is now very adequate,t
and it is probable that no new machi- 1
aery will have to be purchased (luring I
1903, though constant rep)airs will, as
a matter of course, be necessary.
A pamphlet has lately been issued <
which is a reprint from the Yearbook
of. the depart,ment of agriculture for I
1901. It is entitled " Road Building
with Convict Labor in the Southerni
States," and is by Prof. J. A. Holmes<
of Chapel Hill1, N. C., special agent in
office of public roadl inquiries for
Southern division.
Two pages of the pamphlet are de
voted to " the sand-clay roads in Rich
land County, South Carolina," and areI
very readable. T[ho article follows:
" The sandl-clay roads in Richland
County, S. C., are worthy of special
consideration, not only as a product,
of convict labor, but also as an illus
tratioii of how much may be accom
plished in many localities in highway
improvements at small cost, by treat
ing the road surface with a simple ad
mixture of sand andl clay. This coun
ty, with Columbia as it.s county seat,
is located where the hi country merges
into the lowlands, and where the
beds of coarse sand and clay are in
close proximity. After constructing
2 1-2 miles of ordinary macadam road,
at a cost of from $2,000 to $3,000 per
mile, the county supervisor (who in
all South Carolina counties has charge
of the publice roads) wisely decided to
try the simpler and cheaper plan of
spreadmng sand over the clay roads and
clay over the deep sandy roads, and
he has carried forward this work to an
extent and a degree of eficiency per
haps equalled nowhere e18e in the
neighboring States. It was not easy
to determine -the amount of sand in
the one case, or of clay in the other,
which would give the best final result.
Consequently, it has been necessary to
watch the resulting road surface for
several months, in some cases adding
more sand where the surfaces showed
a tendency to give way under traffic in
wet weather, or in cases adding more
clay where the tendlency was for the
surface to break up (huring the dry
season. First, the roads were cut to a
grade of from 2 to 3 per cent., then
*the surface was given the proper cross
section for shedding water, this sur-|
face slope being kept suill, iently gentle
to permit the water to run off slowly
and not carry the sand with it. Th
clay or sand was then hauled in wagon
or carts, usually short distances, an
spread over this suirface for a thicl
ness of from 2 to 0 inches. The ni
rng of the sand and clay was done b
the ordinary travel, which was neve
stopped, an(d the surface was hlnall
packed by the wide-tire wagons an
carts or a horse roller. Where th
supply of sand needed for spreadinA
over the clay load is not found nea
by, pockets are inade in the ditchei
for catching sand, which is later takei.
out, and spread over the surface.
" This work has been in progresi
(luring the past four years. Every
thing even to the construction of thc
culverts and smaller bridges, except.
ing the guarding and supervision, hal
been done by convict labor. The size
of the force has varied from 40 to 70
prisoners, whose terms of sentence
ranged from a fow aays to live years.
During the year 1901 there have been
on an average 60 prisoners, divided
into two camps. The cost of their
maintenance, including the guarding,
feeding, clothing and medical attend
ace curit g the year, has averaged 20
cents per cOnvict per day, as com
pared with a cost of 30 cents per day
per prisoner for feeding and guarding
while confined in the county jail prior
.o sentence and assignment to the road
" As a result of this work during
he past four years this county now
ins (out of a total of about (iO miles
)f public roads) about 125 miles of inn
)roved satd-clay roads, 25 to 30 feet
vide, which cost for grading and sur
acing about $300 per mile, and 75
niles of similar roads, which, built
mndler more favorable conditions, cost
bout $200 per mile. In a few places,
vhere the materials were close at hand
ad little grading was necessary, it is
aid that this work has been done at a
ost not exceeding 8150 per mile.
le oldest portions of these roads have
orne the traffic of three winteis and
hree summers in a highly satisfactory
manner, and the annual cost of repairs
as not exceeded $10 per mile.
"It would be a manifest error to
uppose that similarly cheap and
atisfactory sand-clay roads can b
uilt in all other portions of the coas
al plain region of the South Atlantic
nd Gulf States, for it must be borne
a mind that the character and dis
ribution of the sand ciay deposits of
tichland County make the road build
ag conditions there exceptionally
avorable, and the management of the
vork has been very eflicient. But the
uccess in this county and the measure
f success which has followed experi
lents on a smaller scale in other less
avorod localities, certainly suggests a
ine of policy and experiment which
romises cheap and fairly satisfactory
esults at small cost over much of the
rea of the South Atlantic and Gulf

struction of the Trees.
The Charloston Evening Post says
l1at Mr. James M. Keys, of Omaha,
febraska, thinks that the Legislature
f South Carohna should take some
,otice of t,he wanton destruction of
hie forests of the State and( enact, laws
ooking to the protection and preserva
ion of' the great and valuable timber
ainds, which are fast being cut, away
or the making of lumber. T1hat there
Lre annually thousands of acres of
imber lands that are imp)rop)erly clear
id can not be dboubted, as few men
vho are in the employment of these
timbering comipanties have a knowl
d(ge of forestry, and those that are
n possess5IOn of it nevier exercise dlis
retion in marking the t,rees that are
o be victims to the woodman's axe.
L'lhe trees are cut regardless of posi
ion and other considerat,ions that
hould be observed if t,he wood lanids
>f the State are to have any value in
he neoxt decade. What, is true of t,his
Itate is true of nearly every Southern
Itat,o and many of those in the North,
West and( Northwest.
" I have several hundred acres of
slearedI and wood lands in a count,y
not far dlistant from Omaha,"~ said Mr.
Keys to an Evening Post rep)orter,
" and I have observed groat care in
the cutting of timber, as I have learnr
td a lesson fronm t,hose around me.I
im an enthusiastic advocat,e of the en
riction of laws that will prevent die
erininate lumbering, as I am con
vinced that unless step)s are taken in
the immediate future looking to the
protection of the vast virgin forests of
this country these lands will suffer
heavily from the attacks of the iumber
men, who, as a genteral rule, exercise
absolutely no discret,ion in clearing
tracts that have been purcha~sed by
their companies. They select the kind
of trees that are suitable for their
mar ketmng without other consideration.
The natural consequence is that, gra
dually, but none the less steadily, these
tracts are being sadly depleted and are
being ruined beyond hope of repair.
Many a fine forest has already suf.
fered from this system of timibering,
which has in view only the immediate
money return from their destruction.
" If every State In the tUnion made
provision on the statuto books for thE
regulation of wood cutters it would be
a step in the :ight direction toWant
the preservation of our valuable lands,
Instead of their deprecIating in valm
they would retain it idefinitely. Al.
that is needed is either a State in
spector or else some employee of the
company who has a knowledge o
forestry. This man could . select b;
some mark the trees to be remove
c without detrimeut to those aro
s them. There are thousands of t
d1 able tices in every large tract that
be profitably handled and these c
all be obtained without the least t
y to the rest, and this would ,insure
r growth of the younger saplings.
y time the tract would have ninny t
I that could be cut up for market. I
3 widely recognized that these foresl
i are worth to a State many times
r salaries paid theni.
" Take the vast estate of Geo
Vanderbilt in Buncombe Cour
North Carolina, for example. e i
ploys several high salaried men wi
one duty is to see that the trees on
estate are unhampered in growth. 'J
big sticks in the way of young tr

portunity to grow. These men w

the same as one of less years is a
to commit to memory and understa
the alphabet. The employment
such men by the lumber coipani
would ultimately result in an app:
ciable saving to the State.
" A present lanlger that must i

Rural Free Delivery.
Itural freo delivery is a postal in
vice experiment in the 1lnited Stat
as yet, but the favor with which it
being received augurs well for its sti
cessful performance. From the i
cently issued report of August,
Machen, general superintendent of t
rural free delivery, we learn that t
workings of the service, so far as t
tablished, are becoming more neat
perfect and are already very satisfa
tory. Superintendent Machen es
mates the cost of a complete rural fr
delivery service throughout the Unit
States at $2-l,000,000. About 700,0
square miles of territory still rema
to be covered, which will require t
services of 20,000 additional carrici

12,000 routes a year is acted upon, t

Mr. Maclhen expresses confidlence tha
