Department Advises Congressman Aiker
That Applications from Newberry
Will be Considered Soon.
Congressman Aiken has forwarded t<
the postoffice department at Washing
ington a petition from Sligh's with
1,100 names asking that the two rura
free delivery mail routes from Sligh's
be made daily. These two routes,
which are in operation every other day,
or three. times a week, are' the only
routes in operation in Newberry county
which are not now daily. Congressman
Aiken has strorigly endorsed the peti
tion asking that the routes be made
daily, and will use every effort to have
it acted upon favorably at as early a
date as possible, and is satisfied that
he will succeed in getting the change
made in due course of time.
Congressman Aiken recently wrote
the departnimnt asking that a special
agent be detailed to take up pending
applications,from his district, and es
pecially from Newberry county. In re
ply he has received the following letter
from Fourth Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral Bristow:
"Hon. Wyatt Aiken, M. C., Abbe
ville, S. C.-Dear Sir: Your letter of
September 7th concerning the investiga
tion of pending applications for rural
free delivery service in your district,
particularly in Newberry county, and
requesting that a special agent be de
tailed at an early date to take up these
matters, has been received.
"In reply you are advised that it is
now the policy of the department te
investigate petition8 in the order of
filing. The petitions referred to iri
Newberry county have as you state,
been pending for some time, but there
are other petitions from the State of
South Carolina filed at an earlier date
which are entitled to consideration first.
It is the earnest desire of the depart
ment to bring up the distribution of
rural free delivery to a more equitable
basis, and with that end in view the
older petitions are given priority of
consideration, and in the States and
Districts which have it yet received
an equitable share of this service. The
pending applications in your district
will receive attention at as early a date
as may be found practicable consistent
with the policy of the department as
herein outlined.''

An Old Negro, Healthy and Happy, Who
Came To Town Yesterday to Secure
a Fishing Line.
There was in Newberry yesterday,
from Tom Neel's place between Saluda
and Little rivers, in the upper part of
the ccinty, an old negro who gave his
age as one hundred and thirteen years.
le looked every week of it. le is
about four ond one-half feet high but
he is remarkably erect for one who has
lived even the alloted three score and
ten. He is slightly deaf and his hair is
white like the snows of winter, but his
eye-sight is keen and his memory is
remarkably good. le came to town
to buy a fishing line. le had little or
no money and Mr. J. W. White took
him in charge and gave him hooks and
lines. He rode to town on a wagon
his first trip to town in five years,
though he lives but twelve miles up the
country. He says he has not worked
in two years, but that he can pick a
hundred pounds of cotton any day.
The old negro's name is Glasgow
Harris. He has been married five times
and his various unions have been blessed
with thirty-seven children, but one of
whom he now knows anything about.
Others, he says, may be living. le
didn't know and didn't seem to care.
The old negro said his first master
was Robert Hay, of whom he seemed
to have an indistinct recollection.
Harris says he recollects coming to
Newberry long years ago, when there
was nothing here but a court house,
and when people came here only on
legal business. He told of an old pond
which he said was behind where the
court house now stands, and where
duck-shooting was the order of the (lay.
le said that in those days there were
few stores, and those they had sold only
hardware and cloth and whiskeys - no
one ever thought of buying corn or any
thing else which could be raised or made
at home. He said he was seven years
old when George Washington was pres
ident and he had an indistinct recollec
tion of that period.
A reporter for The Herald and News
asked him what kind of habits he had
that he should live so much longer than
other men. He said his habits were all
good--that he chewed habitually when
he could get anything to chew, that Ie
smoked all the time when he could get
anything to smoke, and that he drank
all the time when he could get anything
to drink. With tears in his eyes lie
saidl he hadn't had a drink in something
over two years, but if he just had a
drink now h'- would feel like a three
year-old. He didn't seem to have much
faith in the theory that liquor and to
bacco shorteh life. He told of the whis
key that used to be made in the "good
old days." It was good and mellow, and
people drank it and were happy and
never got drunk. lie said, too, that in
those days cotton was $1.00 a pound,
and that maybe that was the reason.
le saidl he joined the Baptist church
some five or six years ago, when he was
about 1.07 and thought that he wvas p)re
pared to die when his time comes, though
he said he didn't see any reason wihy it
shouldl come at all soon.
One could not but be imp)ressedl by
the old negro's age. It could almost be
felt as one looked at him, lBut lhe is
contenltedl andI happy. A bout tile only
thing lhe does now is fishling, andl he
says lie catches fish wvhichl weigh as
much as twvelve or fifteen poundls.
A large crowd collected around him
in Mr. J. W. White's store yesterday
as he told tile story of his long life.

Letter to A. T. BIrowvn Newberry S. C.

The Rev. A. Maltais, a French Canadian,
Looks Into Conditions In New
berry County.
The:Rev. Maltais, of Chicoutimi,Prov
ince of Quebec, Canada, who has been
in Greenvill and in the surrounding
mountains fo some time in the interest
of his health, and also with a view to
locating desirable lands in this State and
in the South which might be secured for
numbers of his people who desire to
immigrate to this section of the coun
try, was in Newberry last week look
ing into the conditions here. He
stopped over in Newberry, on the invi
tation of Mr. John Scott. on his return
from a trip to the lower part of the
State, and while in Newberry was Mr.
Scott's guest. le arrived in Newberry
Wednesday night and on Thursday
drove over sections of the county, re
turning to Greenville on Friday. Rev.
Mr. Maltais was very favorably im
pressed with Newberry and with the
conditions prevailing hero.
The people for whom Mr. Maltais is
seeking homes are industrious and
thrifty. They are essentially an agri
cultural and stock-raising people, though
their number includes those skilled in
other vocations. They desire homes in
a climate such as that of the South,
and where they will be welcomed.
They are a very desirable class of imi
migrants, and would no doubt. infuse
new life into the agricultural and com
mercial interests of Newberry county
if they should locate here.
Mr. Scott has some very desirable
lands in view along the lines of the
Southern and the Seaboard railways.
