At the session of the Association
31d in 1833 the following iesolu
on was passed:
"Resolved, That the Saturday be
re the first Lord's day in Novrem
3r next be set apart as a day of
sting, humiliation and prayer.
hat on this day the churches of
2s Association be, and they are
ereby requested, to assemble in
eir respective placeso
nd there with fervent, lowly and
vent and earnest prayers to A
mighty God, that He would vis
our churches and settlements I
the power of His Holy Spirit, an
carry on His woll-began work, ui
til many who are in the gall of bi
terness may come to know the Lor
in the pardon of their sins."
It is safe to say that this resoli
tion wrs carried out by the peop'
for they were strict in the obsei
vance of every religious duty ei
pecially enjoined by the church c
the Association. And it is safe i
say also that the "Spirit of t
Lord was upon them" and wit
them and that many souls foan
the Lord in the "pardon of thei
sins" as a result. What worthie
object could have claimed the
"fasting, humiliation and prayer
than that those in the "gall c
bitterness may come to know th
Lord in the pardon of their sins."
The writer can remember in hi
early life when the custom of "fasl
ing and prayer" was practiced b
Baptists, Methodists and PresbytE
rians, and it does seem that in thos
days the people were better Chria

t H. H. Prince, who with R. E.
d Johnson and W. T. Kreamer, is
interested in the rebuilding of the
- old C. K. & W. road from Green
le ville to the foot of the Blue Ridge
mountains, said to a News man
' that the contract for all the neces
r sary crossties for the road had been
0 let, the crossties to be dalivered
e right away.
h In a few days it is expected that
I active work on the road will be-gin.
As will be seen in the advertising
r columns of the News, General Man
ir ager Prince has asked for bids to
finish the grade of the old . K. &
W. railroad from Marietta to River
e view,
? Mr. Prince has also advertised
a for bids on the building of trestles
on the road from this city to Ma
y rietta. Those who wish to make
a bid can secure a profile and esti
e mates from Mr. Prince.
There has been many rumors dur
r ing the past few years in regard to
e the rebuilding of this road. It is
e the general belief now, however,
r that the road is sure to be built by
1 those in charge-Messrs. Johnson,
1 Prince and Kreamer. These men
have, as previously stated in the
News, purchased thousands of
acres of valuable timber land in
the upper portion of this county,
and to gain easy access to the tim
ber they propose to rebuild this
road to be known as the "Saluda
1 Valley Road."
t For some time the people along
t the route cf the road have been
makine an effort to have the road
rebuilt. In the past few days sev
eral of the leading citizens of the
upper section have been seon by a
News man and they are all thor,
oughly delighted over the prospects
of having an opportunity in the
near future of riding to Greenville
in a passenger coach or hauling
producis to the city in a freight car
instead of the present slow process.
To have the old C.K. & W. road
rebuilt will be a great advantage
to Greenville in many ways, it will
