other Interesting Letter from Col. Cros
son, Former Newberrian, Now of
Texas - Molly's Rocks.
As I draw near this ancient spot,
My heart beats a' the way;
'lk place I pass seems yet to speak
0' some dear former day;
hose happy days o' mine
Whilk make me think the present joys
' naething to lang syne."
Since my last, I am far west visit
Siig my son in Ballinger, where I an
enjoying invigorating breezes in this
delightful climate. I have just re
turned from a three days' camp fislh
on the Concho river, one of the beau.
tiful streams of West Texas. Caught
fine fish and a bad ease of ' sunburn,
,and I am now 400 miles from home.
Resuming our walk, we reach the
forks of the road--the right hand
known as the Beasly road, the spot
afterwards, in 1848, called Jalapa.
Before reaching this point: On
the left of the road lived a good, in.
dustrious, brisk old lady. It was
aid of her that when Dr. Sam Fair
as in the neighborhood vaccinating
he people, she gave him this invita
ion: "Doctor, when you'are around
laxinating, call in and dine breakfast
with us." At a picnic at Jalapa this
kind old lady gave me very pleasant
employment which I enjoyed hugely.
A young man who was dead in love
with her handsome daughter, was
very attentive to her. I was re
quested to be her beau on that day.
I certainly enjoyed the company of
tL: beautiful girl and the discomfit.
ure of the youngster. The young
lady died early. She has entered
the promised land, while we are yet
on the march.
Not far from this spot was Tran
quil M. E. church, one of the oldest
and most prominet in the district
(now I learn moved to Jalap)-the
ground around the steps beaten bare
by lounging footsteps of pious gene
rations gone before. What hallowed
memories of sweet and quiet Sun
days, stir to life in the hearts that
have known it! "How the voices long
since silenced live again and peal
and ring above those really heard!
How memories and hopes, love and
ferra throng from their remote hiding
places in the heart, bringing tears to
Ithe eyes, and now gentle, soothing,
.soul tilling fragrance and light from
.1(old lost days." They pass before
me like a throng of gentle spirits,
filled with heavenly love and among
them the Wrights, Shells, Gilliams
and others. Who that ever knew
that pure man anid devout Christian,
Zacheus Wright, will ever forget
him ? It is true of him, "He wyore
the white flower of a blameless life."
The singing in that church was in
spiring and1 fervent, and there was a
wonderful syrupathy and earnestness
in their voices. There was not the
gymnastic singing of the present day,
but it was joyous, devotional, filling
t,he soul with worshipful praise.
Some one lhas said: "Churches as a
~whole do the hiumnane wvork of the
,orld. Tranquil has (done its full
When I think of the glorious wvork
the M. E. Church has done for this
world, I think of the scorn that
greeted1 John Wesley's attempt to
make the religion of his day a reality.
Near the Laureons road, also in the
olden time, lived four brothers, all
excellent citizens, named Cannon.
The eldost, Uncle Billy Cannon was
an old bachelor. I have as vivid a
recollection of him as it I had seen
him yesterday. lHe wats a kind, in
dulgent master. Anut Naucy, a big,
fat, impudent 01(d negress, carried
the keys and fed Uncle Billy as it
suited her. One spring Uncle Billy
said: "Well, Nancy, I'm tired of
hbving no meat to eat but bacon,
and want ham." In a saucy way she
replied there was no ham. Quoth
he, ''What his become of it" "E 'I'at
up," said she. For once he lost his
temper and st.ruck hor downi. Downi
she fell as in a fainting lit, rolled up
her eyes skywvaid and called out,
"Lord Jesnus.- receive my spirit."
But the geood Lord was not ini a re
ceiving spirit that day, anud the old
lady for many a day afterward fed
the old man as it suited her.
Dr. Isaac Cannon was a fine man
and physician, b)ut occasionally 1Johni
Barleycorn was too many for him.
David Cannon was one of the
good men of the earth, and a line
surveyor. He attended the great
Baptist revival in 1831 in the Hal
cyon grove on the school grounds
and camped. I remember he got a
chair from father, and on it 'Was cut
the letter D, which suited well, for
he and father were both named David.
That chair we had when we left for
Texas. He was a Bush River Bap
tist and a Christian gentleman. The
result of that revival was the organi
zation of the Newberry Baptist
church, and I always thought it was
composed of as intellectual,and pious
ladies and men as I ever knew.1
Another one of the brothers was
Col. Geo. S. Cannon, at one time
commanding the 38th Regiment. He
was one of the most elegant and
prominent citizens of the District and
a Bush River Baptist. A friend re
lated to me this incident: Col. Can
non visited the Legislature, when it
was a "Coon" Legislature with very
few white gentlemen in it. He re
lated the following: "My old friend,
H. A. Meetze, introduced in the Sen.
ate a resolution requesting the Presi
deO. io imove the Federal troops,
for their bristling bayonets were a
menace to civil liberty, and made an
eloquent address. Whereupon a
nappy "cullid gemman," knowing his
tenure depended upon bayonets, an
swered: "Mr. President, I desires
to say a few words in answer to the
gemmen. Here's how dis ting is:
you goes home at night, sits by the
fire, the cat on dis side, the dog on
dat side, so long as you sits dar all
right; de minit you leab dar do cat's
in de loft." His black brudders, en
joying his eloquence, thought that a
sure enougb answer.
These four brothers were truthful,
noble souls.
Now for Molly's rock. A few N ears
since an old gentleman named Run
nels, from Spajanburg, finding I
was from Newborry, said he had
often camped . Molly's rook, and
being a jolly fellow, always called
me Molly's rocks. It was said to be
a haunted spot. Housen kenner
told me that when he was a kid, he
dreaded to pass by at nigl,c, said he
was timid and would see shadows
struggling in the dim moonlight and
hear wild noises in stormy weather.
I asked him if he believed in ghosts.
He said no, but that he was dread
fully afraid of them.
My friend and kinsman, J. G.
Martin, gives me the following:
"A bout nine miles northeast of thbe
town of Newberry, near the eastern
terminus of the Calmes road, where
it intersects the old Buncombe road,
are several large granite boulders
known as Molly's rocks. They were
a way mark for the many wagoners
and travellers going over the Bun
comb)e road. This road was formerly
the great thoroughfare from western
North Carolina, the upper districts
of South Carolina, to and from Co
lumbia and Charleston. In many in
stances these rocks lie poised on one
another in sublime repose. They
seem to be looking back through the
dim vista of past ages and forward
through the countless years of com
ing centuries. They appear to be
like Tennyson's Brook: "For, men
may come and men may go, but
they are there forever." They are
surrounded by a pretty country, be
ing at a point where the gently roll
ing lands of the chinquepin' region
b)reak into the rich and rugged hills
andI valleys that reach out to the
Enoree Valley. They receive their
name from Molly Lindsay, an old
demented wife and mother whose
home was somewhere near Catch
Penny. Her insanity was not of a
sad and sombre caste, but consisted
of felicitous fancies anid happy hallui
cinsations. She loved those haunts
and would linger around these rocks.
After lying under these rocks she
imagined that the cattle oii a thou.
sand1( hills were hers and that all the
wagons and produce that p)assed1 the
Buncombe road wvere also hers. Her
husband and children moved to
Georgia, but she would not go. In
ai year or so the husband anid son
Tommie namn hack and entrated her
to go. The only sennible remark
they got from her was, as she en.
tered a house where they were and
first saw them: "Hi, Tommy, is that
you ?"
On one occasion Tom Crosson, the
great-grand father of the Crossons
now living in Newberry, when a boy,
had been to mill on horseback. See
ing an apple tree loaded with apples
near the road, he hitched his horse.
Up the tree went he after apples
when, to his horror he saw Molly
underneath, who told him to shake
them down, that she would pick them
up, and they would go to his father
Aleck's who had plenty of sugar and
they would have apple dumplings.
He came down. "Now," said she,
"you get on and I will get up,behind
you." He quickly got up and put.
ting spur to his horse, fled. The
last he saw of her she was throwing
apples after him furiously and villi
fyi.i;- him. A wagoner on a bleak
wet day camped for the night in an
old school house at Molly's rocks;
he got there on a dark night, and
with flint and steel was trying to
start a fire. Suddenly some one
grabbed him from behind and said,
"Oh, yes, I've been looking for you
a long time." It was old Molly who,
like King Lear, had taken refuge
from the storm in the old cabin.
While she was harmless every one
was afraid of her. When or where
she died we cannot now remember.
They were a splendid people in the
olden time who lived near Molly's
I shall love dear Newberry'till the
chains of clay fall from my soul. At
leisure I'll write again.

Attorney General Gunter Suggests a Plan -
Comparison In Crimes In The
The State.
Attorney General Gunter has hit
upon a plan which, if it (oes4 not pre
vent lynclings, he believes will go
a long ways toward lessoning them.
He called attention to the fact that
since the alti-duelling law w1as pansed
in the State in 1882, the crime has
been virtually wiped off the statuto
books. This lar,, which roads as fol
lows, has been of the greatest. pos"i
ble benefit to the State:
"No property qualification, unless
prescribed in this constitution, shall
be necessary for an election to or
the holding of any offico. No per
son shall be elected or appointed to I
office in this State for life or during
good behavior, but the terus of all
officers shall be for some specified
period, except notaries public and
officers in the militia. After the
adoption of this constitution any por
son who shall light a duel or send
or accept a challenge for that. pur
pose, or be an aider or abettor in
fighting a duel, shall be deprived of
holding any oflice of honor or trust I
in this State, and shall he cthorwiso
punished as the lv shall prescribe."
"That law,'' said Mr. (inter yes
torday, "has stopp,d duelling, and
a similar law might be passed which,
I believe, would go a loig way toward
stopping lynchings. If a man knows
that he is going to bo abtsolitely do
barred from his right to vote or hold r
oflice he will be very apt to think
twice before taking any part in the I
crime, especially for the reason that, t
he knows at any time, in the ovent
that he should run for offico, it will j
be a comparatively simple thing for ,
some of the people to bring this charge I
against him. The law might bo made
even stronger, and even id de the
bystanders in the sti atuto. This would,
I think, almost assuredly make it of
"How would a law like this be
made operative-by legislative ol
actment?" t
"No. In some Siates that would
be possible, but. bere in South Caro
lina it would have to be a contitu
tional enactment. That is, the leg- I
islaturo would have to pass a joint,
resolution and then the matter would i
go before the people to be voted on I
at the regular elections. Then it 1
would have to go before the logisla
ture for consideration again. I am
absolutely confident that, if such ai
law is eventually passed it will be
effective and of the greatest poss5il0
value to t,he State, and also think the
peole of the State are ripe for it.

Mr. Bellinger's report showed that
for the fiscal year 1902 there were
1,731 offenses committed against the
State. A recent table published in
rho State showed that out of sonjo
700 prisoners in the penitentiary
iearly -10 per cent. were there for
nurder, manslaughter or assault and
,attery with intent to kill.
This enormous percentage, how
wer, has had the effect of bringing
ibout more convictions for murder
mid manslaughter than at any pre

mud it is because of these convictions
hat the authorities are redoubling
