Two Former Laurens Utiiens la Race
For the Position.
The postoffice status in Greenwood?
for a "status" has been created by re
cent developments?has taken a rather
interesting turn and there are now
some several applicants for the position
of postmaster of Greenwood. Up to
yesterday morning all was quiet and se
rene, but things got busy, and in a
short while there were two petitions
being circulated to secure endorsements
for the position of postmaster.
The gentlemen who are avowed can
didates for the position are Dr. P. B.
Connor, C. W. Garrett, Manor L. Rice
of Ninety-Six, and the incumbent, L.
The term of the present postmaster
expires next February, and the politi
cal pot is beginning to boil. The two
petitions which were in circulation yes
terday were being carried around by
the friends of Mr. L. M. Moore and of
Dr. P. B. Connor.
The office of postmaster is an ap
pointive one, confirmed by the Senate
of the United States. The office holder
is appointed by the President, which
virtually means confirmation. The of
fice at this place has become one of the
most important in the State by virtue
of many things, prominent among
which is the large amount of through
mail handled. The department at
Washington has recently granted free
delivery, which will be put on in a few

Workday for the Orphans.
A recent movement set on foot by
Howard L. Crumb/ of the Decatur,
(Ga.) Orphans Home, is likely to be of |
very considerable service in the near
future to our orphan children. The pro
position is that every man in the State,
every woman and every child should set
apart Sept. 23 (Saturday) of this year,
the proceeds of his labor on that day,
or whatever he can make, if he be not
in business to the support of the or
phans in the institution he loves best.
In this State Presbyterians will work
for the Thornwell Orphanage, Clinton;
the Methodists for the Epworth Or
phanage, Columbia; The Baptists for
the Connie Maxwell, Greenwood. Send
promptly on the Monday following, the
sum made or raised, to the institution
of your choice. The help coming in at
that time, will tide over these Institu
tions till the Thanksgiving and Christ
mas days. Send it, he it little or much.
There are about six hundred orphans in
these Institutions and there are others
besides. The Lutheran Orphanage is at
Salem, Va., the Hebrew Orphanage is
at Atlanta, Ga. Draw your check or
money order in favor of the Institution
you prefer and mail it to the address

It was on the 22d of November, 1855,
that the friendly natives with whom ho
was traveling brought Dr. David JAv
ingstouo for the first time within sight
and sound of the wonderful cataract
on tho Zambezi river, now known as
tho Victoria falls, liefere rinding it,
tho good missionary had Jouruoyed for
nearly two years, and from his point
of departure at Kurumun, In Cape Col
ony, bad traversed quite 4,000 miles of
hitherto unkuowu country.
Today ouo takes tho train at Cape
Town on Wednesday, passes through
Klmberley on Thursday, reaches Bulu
wayo on Saturday, and late In the aft
ernoon of Sunday beglus to see In tho
distance the rising pillar of mist from
the great entaraet.
The natives call it "Mosl-oatunl."
meaning "the roaring smoke." Twenty
miles away the spray thrown buck
from the depths of the tremendous cav
ern Into which tho river tumbles ap
pears like a column of smoke rising
from n burning village, and during the
last mile of the railway Journey tho
roar of the falling water becomes no
ticeable. Finally, when the edge of
the chasm Is reached, If the river is lu
llood, the eye and ear are assailed by
a e* mbluatlou of phenomena that prob
ably cannot be duplicated as marvels
anywhere else on the planet.
The llrst question that Is asked of an
American who has seen this African
WOllder generally Is, "How does It com
pare with Niagara?" Tbero is uo pos
sibility of comparison. The two are as
different as day and night Niagara Is
a perfect picture In a lovely natural
framework. Every point and Hue and
curve of motionless rock, trembling
verdure and gilding water Is a touch of
majestic beauty. Victoria is simply a
phenomenon, a terrlllc gash In the Soor
of an apparently unending plain, which
as one gazes simply swallows a rlvor
lu a manner that produces almost a
thrill of horror.
The Zambezi valley for a hundred
miles or more lu every direction from
the cataract Is a rough and broken
plateau covered with low brush and
BtUUted trees, with here and there an
outcrop of somber basaltic rock, all
thoroughly uninteresting. The herbage
Is but faintly green and the tropical
sky only faintly blue. It Is a hazy
half tone landscape, wanting In clear
cut llmw In every direction and lacking,
above everything else, that element
we always unconsciously seel; in a
nature picture- life. The absence of
iMs produces In the mind n feeling of
loneliness nnd often of fear. Across
this solemn scene appears a river that
in Hood time Is perhaps half a mile
wide. If a deaf man were f< llowlug
down one of Its banks bo would notice
little but the quiet water nnd the odd
looking column of smoke ahead. As
this column was approached ho would
expect to see the river banks bending
and tho water tlowlng away to one
side of the conflagration and might
glance to the right und left to note the
direction taken. But the panorama
changes as he gazes. The river is no
more, and there, where It should be.
Is only the brown plain, as lonely,
brush covered and monotonous as ever.
One must go twenty miles farther be
fore the vanished water and the sur
face of tho land again commingle, be
fore It will bo possible to walk along
the bank In company with the river.
So stuhlen Is the transformation.
Meantime the pillar of smoke has re
solved Itself into a dense mist forced
upward In terrible puffs from a yawn
ing gash stretching directly across tho
bed of (he river. This fearful abyss is
every second swallowing thousands of
tons of green and while water and
belching up blasts of mist that rlso
hundreds of feel Into the air and hurry
away with tho winds as If rojolclug
at their escape from the Inferno bo
low. And somowhere, nearly ?100 feet
below, the entrapped river Is lighting
its way between sheer walls of black
rock toward a narrow cleft in tho
eastern wall, whence It escapes, foam
Ing and boiling, through tho zigzags
and curves of a deep gorge leading off
to the eastward. One goes to an edge
of this delivering chasm nnd looks
down upon tho tossing waters, over
pressed from behind by other floods
struggling out of the narrow black
gateway, and perhaps the most prom
inent meutal sensation Is that of thank
fulness that even In stiel? 0 grim and
ghastly way nature has provided a
means by which the fearful silt of a
throat above that has swallowed tho
stream can disgorge It again without
causing an overwhelming catastrophe.
The Victoria cataract should bo visit
ed at least twice beforo one Is compo
tent to pass an opinion upon it. When
the river is in flood (July) tho scene is
simply terrible. One sees nothing but
an enormous sheet of water disappear
ing Into tho bowels of the earth with
a nolso as of mountains falling upon
one another, while from the awful gash
comes back In fierce gusfs and swirls
tho foaming breath of the tortured ele
ntent below. Hut In December, when
(be water Is low, the edge of the cata
frnot shows as a long, creamy film of
lovely lace; the rising mist flows soft
ly awny through the little rain forest
below tho cavern's lip; tho glgnntio
vault Itself becomes a wonderful spec
tacle, a dream of neutral tints, n cave
of beauty. Far down in its dark
depths tho waters, gilding along tho
rocky walls and bonding gracefully
around the corners toward tho narrow
outlet pass gayly and laughingly to
freedom. For a time the demon of the
cataract is sleeping.- Theodore F. Van
Wagenen In Century.
