(Jhestor, S. C., Special.-In re
sponse to t.he announcement made
by the county commissioners that
work on permanent roads would
be begun in that part of the coun
ty which offered the greatest in
ducement in the way of money
and rock, many enthusiastic meet
ings have ben held by the farmers
throughout the county.. Monday
the board decided that the Colum
bia road should be worked .first,
$1,500 having been donated. The
work will extend to the threo
mile post, and will then be begun
on the Roseville road and worked
to the third mile post on that road.
Padn's bridge road will also be
worked to the three 'Milo post.
Other portions of the county of
fered great inducements. In Mr.
T. J. Cunningham's neighborhood
about Woodward church, money
and rock were offered and a team
of eight mules for a part of the
time. Rodman section donated a
$500. From the Brick house on
that road to Rocky creek, a die- I
tance of two miles, $400 was dona- J
ted. The people are much inter
ested in this work, and in a few i
yeats bad roads in this county will
be a matter of history. Mr. An

Gov, Heyward makes this state
nent: "I regret to say that,
hough I have waited several days
or oflicial notice regarding this I
awless act, ..not one report has I
eached me through officers of the I
aw.'' He refers to the murder of
lead in Aiken county. As the
aw requires these reports to be

vould be an excellent opportunity
,o let the c'Uers of the law under- I
tand that they will be required to

ays The Era, "that the courts are I

ot without some reason) and the
ooner this idea is gotten rid of the I
otter it will be for the cause of

1end the action of Judge Gage on
he same grounds as The Eia, yet
here is another view. We would,
)r the cause of justice, reverse his r
uling and require that every wit- f
ess and juror should appear in J

bould he6 exposed to view. We t

over all hejr movements. The young
people couldn't gdt away and but
for the tin'iely assistance of Orin
Hlarwell they would yet be trying.
Harwell laid the plans and the
others carried them out. It was
this way, Miss Eagle having taken
off her shoes on the eve ot her mar
riage walked out on the porch os
ton sibly for the purpose of washing
her feet when she suddenly darted
across the yard and through a
field of cotton where she was miet
by her lover and young Harwell.
There was a buggy in awaiting and
in less time than it takes to tell it
they were offY with the horse
stretched at a dead run.
Hlarwell, however, strayed at his
post to arrest the progi'ess of the
pursuing Croker. Mr. Croker is a
fierce man and everybody else was
afraid of him. Just wvhy lie went
no0 further than the cotton field
nobody knows but thmo two men.
Har well could tell but he just grins
and won't. However, the bare
footed, baro~headed bride and the
groom soon reached the home of
Marriage Artist 0. 0. Harwell who
being called out of bed stepped on
the porch also bareheaded and
barefooted and as time was pre
cious they were married in short
order. Young Erviln thon drove
with his Trilby bride to his own
home as well content as if ho had
mnarried in the church .with the
seliction of the whole world.

The Southern Railway has com
pleted the work of clearing up the
wreckage of 13 cars and an engine
which ran away on the heavy grade
up Saluda Mountain last week and
were almost annihilated. The
train of cars after gaining a fright
ful speed left the track and landed
in a valley some distance from the
main line. A side track wvas
built downi to the wreck and a
large wrecking engine drew the de
railed freight engine back on the
track. One car of the train which
did not leave the track was loaded
with eggs and, strango to say, few
of them were broken. The runa
way was attributed to the fact that
the air brakes'lhad been tampered
with. When the crew saw their
danger they jumped and the train
rushed on down grade for several
miles before leaving the track.
