Showing of Past Year's Report of
Southern Railway,
An annual report of Mr. Frank
S. Gannon, vice-presideurajicl gen
eral manager of the Southern Rail
way Company, has just been made
to President Spencer. It states
that the number of miles operated
during the past year .was about
5,337, an increase of a' little more
than 404 miles. There has been
added during the same period, by
purchase or contract to purchase,
equipment as 'follows: Thirteen
locomotives. eleven passenger
cars, four combination cars, six
express cars,, one postal car,; 970
freight cars, one steam tug j and
two barges. f
From April 20 to June 30 about
65,000 United States troops were
handled in special trains. This
was done without accident aridon
satisfactory time schedules, not
withstanding that in many in
stances the' trains were operate
on extremely short notice and on
fast time. This does not include
such detachments of troops as
were handled on regular trains, 'i
? During the year, it was stated,
over 200 new manufacturing es
tablishments of various kinds were
wholly or , partially constructed
at points upon the company's
lines. The aggregate cost df these
plants, together with the cost -of
additions to existing plants made
or begun during the year, is j esti
mated to be over 4,000,000.
These new plants include thirteen
cotton mills, which together j with
additious to previously existing
mills, will contain about 258,000
spindles and about 2,200 looms.
There have, been constructed
during the year by the company
over twelve miles of additional
sidetracks : to new industries,
whose, business is, or will be,
tributary to the company's lines.
These improvements are accepted
as an indication of a steady and
substantial growth of manufactur
ing industries in the South.

That Lawn Party.
. Perhaps not in the history of
Franklin township has a more en
joyable occasion presented itself
than the lawn party "generously
given by Mr. James A. Hudson,
at his residence, on the night of
the 24th inst. Everything seem
ed to conspire to make it a season
of enjoyment long to be remem
bered by those who attended it,
and if every one did not return to
his home wiser and better the
fault was not in the place, nor its
Mr. Hudson's residence is hand
some and the lawn in front of it
is exquisite. ;
Approaching it just at nightfall
one was impressed with the beauty
of the lights shed by numerous
Japanese lanterns appropriately
hung in the lawn in front of the
house. A large crowd of young
ladies and gentlemen assembled.
Excellent music was rendered by
four or five different young ladies,
(mostly, if not altogether, in solos).
The young ladies, in the rendering
of these pieces; exhibited not only
assiduous culture but a high de
gree of natural talent, for each in
her turn would,
" "With searching art,
Feel for each tone,
And speed it to the heart."
Soon we were called to the rear
of the campus, where a longjtable
was spread with watermelons of
the finest flavor, such as Mr. Hud
son never fails to raise. 1
There happened to be an old
churlish philosopher present, who
never was known to love anything
so well-as the hating of himself,
after taking a few mouthfuls of
the 4 'savory pulp" turned to the
throng of youthful beauty around
him and said, "well,
The girls are pretty, :
The melons are sweet,
And all exceedingly hard to beat."
The feast of melons being over,
a stampede to the campus took
place', and promenades , across and
around the I, lawn, in the mellow
lights of the "Jap lanterns," be
gan.. It was manifest that the sly
TulltPgoltr cupid y was" "no w -coiii"
mauding the hosts, for the old
churlish philosopher' - cuuid per
ceive l hut -darts were rlyiug and
that tiie citadels of many loving
hearts were ! - being stormed. This
old philosopher perceiving all
this, turned lo a young lady con
spicuous fr her beauty and said:
'This lawn puts on a dueler hue,
You skies assume a clearer blue,
Because you arc here."
Sometime having been spent
in this way . the crowd was sum
moned back to the table where a
sumptuous feast of ice cream, lem
onade and cakes was spread, of
which all partook 'with good cheer.
Guests wjere there from various
parts of Rowan, as also from
Davio-and I!)a.vidson. There Were,
by estimation, some eighty or
njuety persons present. X. JT. Z.
