The Due West Commenee
The Abbeville papers furnish higi
ly interesting accounts of the com
mencement exercises of the Due Wes
Female College and of Erskine Mal
College, which closed on Thursda;
evening, June 26th. Both of thes
institutions are in a prosperous an
happy condition, and situated as the;

Particularly are they the most active
in the Western States. We notice in
the Rural Carolinian for July, an
interesting account of a gathering of
the Union County Grangers, on the
first Monday in June last, for the
purpose of a interchange of opinions
upoun questions rtlating to the welfare
of the Order. There were present,
delegates from Fair Forest, Cross Key,

as being not orly very interesting, but
The Carolinian s.ys:
The main question fo)r the discus.
sion of which the delegates had as.

s pect of the crops, &c., which was
e thoroughly sifted, and the following
conelusions arrived at
"Area planted in cotton, compared
to 1872, in the County of Union; an
increase of ten per cent. The present
condition and prospect of the crop ?
Decidedly bad. An excess of rain,
cloudy, cold nights, high winds, de
ficiency of reliable labor, and luxuriant
grass, have combined to injure the
stand, and retard the growth of the
plant, was the unanimous opinion.
1 Comparative area planted in corn ?
- There was some difference of opinion
upon this question-some sections
having planted as much-others re
porting a decrease of 5 per cent.,
which. we think, may be safely set
down for the county.

tAn agreeable feature of the meet

character, each member taking with
him or her a basket of refreshments,

question here arises : Why cannot the
Newberry Grangers meet together, say
about the 1st of August, also for a
similar interchange of ideas, as pro

would like very miuch to attend such

The evils feared, that postal cards
would be used as a meaus of offensive
couuunications, have not been real
ized, where the cards can be obtained,
1and it is not likely there will be any
trouble here in this respect, for we
can get none of them for good or evil
,purposes. We do not understood why
it is that the Newberry P'ostoffice can
not get a supply of them.

Few persons have any adequat
idea of the difficulties which havy
surrounded the Greenville and Colun,
bia Railroad since it passed into th<
hands of' its present owners. The ro:d
was worn out; its ralli2g stoek was in
a miserably dilapidated condition; tha
increase in business tasked the capa
city of the line to the utmost. At
the same time. the protracted litiga
tion in which the eomnpany was in
volved destroyed its credit, and pre
vented the management from spend
ing money, as they had proposed it
do, in refitting :and .quipping th
road. The public complained of in

safely be said that, without the cc

been a complete block-np of freighi

FOR THE HERALD.
The Pie Nic Saturday.
It appears as if the earnest wishes of thm
young people were heeded, as the day for thm
pic nic was all that could be desired. Thm
wind was cool and refreshing, and the sk:
cloudless. With such promise, there so0i
collected kt the rendezvous - Prof. Pifer'
Academy-a majority of the beauty arnd gal
lantry of the town. Here dray loads in grea
number left, forming a gay procession, an<
passing down Main st., by the depot, wen

the gaol first and win the honors.
O'Ncal's old mill was reached in due set

us we mean ladies and gentlemen, began t
cast sly glances, yet very significant ones,a
*each other ; and, suddenly and with wonder
fnl simultaniety, a spirit seemed to mnov
each other, as it were. Before you coul
look around, couple after couple sought th
cover of some shady spot to recline at ens
on the verdant carpet of grass to indulge 1
the pleasures of an uniuterrupted tete-a-tete
We noticed that this selfihh perambulating
of couples was the most conspicuous featur
of the day; but who could expect otherwis
in this period of advancement. The "~Will
Irishman," "Steal Partners," and other ju
venile sports were in disrepute. From thm
dots we could gather and from private ob
servation, there were many gordian knot
tied and severed. It seems as if fishing wa
intended to assist in passing the ennui of th
day; but whether it was to fish for the deni
zens of the water or to catch dry land fish
is a very doubtful question. We understani
fish bit finely, but few were taken. But on
thing is certain, we observed a specialty i
the later sport.
A t 2 o'clock, instinct or the pangs of hun
ger, we don't know which, drew all the stra;
parties about the grove of oaks just to thm
left of the mill, where a most abundant sup
ply of the good things of this world wier:
spread, composed of both sweetmeats an
substantial eatables. From observatzions yoi
would suppose that few had eaten anything fo:
several days, yet it was gratirying to see tI
young people enjoy themselves so much.

from the ground, yet the tables seemed asi

Mt. EDiroR: The iatal dav of Anerica
is here, and as hot as the ithiiabi.atti of
said country can well stand it. It seans to
be a holiday still. About our towi are
gathered large numbers of both white and
black, from all parts of the County. Ir. J.
M. Kibler has a baibecue, and ha, fur
nished for all a dinner, prepared by the
most noted cooks in this part of the Cunity.
Among them is that chief of hash mtkers,
Mr. S. P. Kinard, of your town. We were
there in time with our bucket and luvipg
fil,ed it returned home to eijoy it wita our
better half. Our opinion is, that neither
Mr Holley nor Mr. Kinard have lost their
reputation by this effort to prepare sr ry
food for the people.
Since our last we have been going fron
place to place, foll' wing the call of duty,
and enjoying the presence of old sceies
Our lirst trip was to Walhalla to attend
the commencemnwnt e xercises of Ne wherry
College. The examination of the students
was all that 'could be expected, and gave
evidence of the qualification and zeal of
our professors and the studious habits of
the students there. The fact that there hIs
been no meetiag of the faculty ior the con
sideration of eases of bad conduct neces
sary, for the whole of the past session,
sho%s the moral condition of the institution.
The exercises of coinmmencement week were
interesting and . well attended. We have
not space to notice all the exercises, hetice
will only refer to the contest in oratory
between Messrs. L. Bushy, W. C. Moore
anad Geo. Haltiwanger. Each speaker did
well, so well that the comimittee only re
grotted thiere were not Lhre.' iimnIs inimatd
of one. The medal was awarded to Mr.
Geo. Hlaltiwanger, of Ninety-Siv. Let the
people come up with their pledges to the
institution and she a ill be entirely free
from debt, and in better cotidition thtan
ever since the war.
From WaIhalla we went to St. Paul's
Church, about six nmiles below Prosperity,
to be present at a meeting of the Ne wberry
Conference of the S. C. Lutheran Synod.
We were pleased with everythinig atnd emjoy
ed ourself finely. The naext meeting will be
- held in Newberry at Luther Chapel, begin
ninig on Friday before tihe fifth Sunday in
3 Just about town business is very dull,
though in the surrounding cotuntry there is
a lively battle going on between the fur
mers and the-grass. The former are about
to conquer, and the general appearatice of
the crops is better than their condition two
- weeks affo would have indicated. I will not
-be surprised if there will not be as rauich
trouble in the fall to have themt gathered,
as niow, to get them worked. The lodge of
a Good Tenmplars is doing well. Five were
e initiated at our last meeting, and several

Little did we think wheti we penned the

it is this:-No one should remain in the
patient's room during the doctor's call, ex.

to be visiting a friend when the medical
advisor calls, withdraw quietly from the

to remain and hear what the doctor says :nay

W'hat food is ordered for the sick, shou Id

your little delicacies for your own sick boy,

thing, will account for the faer, tha:t the sick

abroad, more than the saute articlc gotten

If, for example, tea and toast are ordered; do
not bring the toast on the saucer, nor the tea
