of the United Order of True Reformers
-was held on Thursday night, the 15th,
in the Hoge School House. The meet

and Boston. About.twenty names were
subscribed. This new order is under
the auspices of the Grand Lodge of
Good Templar-s, and on this occasion
was addressed explanatorily by District
Deputy, Mr. L. R. Marshall. We wish
the Fountain success.
TO HOUsEKEEPERS.-With the open
ing of Spring, housekeepers find that,
besides the wear and tear and smash of
the winter, which makes an addition to
their stock of kitchen and dining room
chattels necessary, there are many arti
cles peeuliarto the season which must be
had, and where to find them readily and
cheaply is the question. Messrs. Kings
land & Heath solves the prob)lem by in
viting all persons in need of china,
glass, stone, wood, iron and tin ware, to
visit their store in Columbia, under the
Columbia Hotel. 16-tf

AEROLITE.-While standing in his
back porch some time since, a farmer
near Beth Eden Church, saw rapidly
descending from the heavens a bright
star as he supposed. It fell to the
ground apparently back of his garden
enclosure, and for some seconds lie
could see it in the shape of a large burn
ing coal. Supposing it to be a shell
from the enemy's camp, and that it
might burst and do him damage, he re
mained in the back piazza until the
light expired and too late to mark the
spot. It was too bad, he might have
gone and risked one eye on it anyhow.
It was no dor.'>t a meteoric stone from

Segar can be had at their establishment
from the finest grade down to common,
and at prices which defy competition.
Their determination is to give the ut
most satisfaction in the quality of their
Segars and Tobacco, and at the same
time they do not forg'et to fix prices in
accordance with the times. A visit to
their store will assuredly result in pleas
ure, and an order will meet with prompt
attention. Remember the place, just
below J. C. Dial's Hardware Store, on
Main Street. 16-tf.
THE PRELS IN DANGER.-.The at
tempts to muzzle the press are so fre
quent as to excite grave apprehensions,
but heretofore, fortunately, they have
amounted to nothing. Failures, how
ever, only excite to redoubled efforts,
and when muzzliug will not affect ~the
object, choking is resorted to. The latest
case on record is that of the Messrs.
Swafiield, clothiers of Columbia, vs.
Julian A. Selby of the Phenix. It was
a complete success, too, for with the
assistance of Maj. Beck, salesman,
Selby was effectually choked, the article
used to serve the purpose being a mag
nificent satin cravat, the cost of which,
though, was not regarded at all. Selby
has had the last word, and is out in ai
seven inch local about it.

THE WEATHER.-Sad to record or
Friday we were visited with a touch oj
winter which culminated in killing
frosts on Saturday, Sunday and Mon
(ay mornings, the heaviest andl mosi
killing on Monday. Nearly all tendei
vegetation is killed in gardens,- while
on the plantation much of the early
planted corn is cut down. The conse
quences of this unexpected and sever<
frost are sad to contemphzite. There f
no doubt too that the fruit crop will b<
very short, if it is not entirely killed
Grapes and figs have suffered seriously
Without the frost, the high winds whici
seemed to come from the very frozer
regions, and which prevailed during
the days mentioned, would in them
selves have done serious harm, Th<
visitation is a very serious one.
Since writing the above old fruit
growers say the crop is not badly hurt

MISSIONAnY SocIETY MEETING.-ThE
regular monthly meeting of the Asso
ciate Peformed Presbyterian Mission
ary Society was held in Thompsor
Street church on Tuesday evening last,
and a very interesting paper from
Dr. Boyce was read by the Rev. E. P.
McClintoek. After, an eloquent ad
dress was delivered by M. A. Carlisle,
Esq. It is a regret that the audience
was small, from the fact that no public
notice was given of the meeting. Had
it been generally known, there would
have been a larger turn out, and a much
wider pleasure experienced in hearing
an address so full of thought as was de
livered on that occasion. There were
five members added to the Society.
The next meeting will be held on the
second Tuesday in May, and Ira B.
Jones, Esq., will make an address. The
Rev. T. G. Herbert, of the Methodist
circuit, was chosen to address the So
ciety at its June meeting.

We cry out against the coming revolu
tion in skrimping the skirt. Why the
present fashionable skirt is the ugliest
thing on some ladies we have ever
seen. The dear creatures may as well
get into a narrow corn sack at once.
If the object is to show the female form
divine then it is all right, but if for ease,
or comfort, or elegance, then it is a
lamentable failure. They might as
well squeeze themselves into one leg of
a pair of pantaloons and tuck up the
surplus leg into furbelows for ornamen
tation on the back. Something is wrong
evidently. We go in for flowing, easy,
loose petticoats in preference to the
little, narrow-drawn skirts now so com
monly worn. If this thing is continued

THE T RE A SUR ER'S BOOKS.-The
County Treasurer, Capt. Jesse'C. Smith,
courteously allowed us an insight into
his books quite recently, and it affords
us satisfaction to say that they are kept
with exceeding accuracy, every account,
State and County, being separate and
distinct, atnd so plain that at a glance
each receipt and disbursement can be at
once seen. We are pleased to make
this mention as we are satisfied that
this officer is entitled to praise for the
manner in which he has conducted all
the complex duties of his office, and
however much the tax may be consid
ered a burden, still no word of complaint
can be made of any of his official deal
ings with the people. We find that the
total amount of State and County tax
paid in up to his last report to the
Comptroller-General is $77,402.96, and
that notwithstanding the heavy drafts
made on the amount received for coun
ty purposes that there is a snug sum
still on.hand. Among the items paid
out of this fund recently, we notice
that the Jury expense of last court
footed up the enormous sum of $642.60.
This amount is largely in excess of
previous expenses for same purposes,
we believe. We notice, too, that school
claims are paid up promptly and regu
larly, as they shoul be, and that teach
ers have no reason to complain.
The amounts received by some of them
are amply sufficient for the labor per
ARnEsT OF TWO OF THE GANG.
Capt. Greer, of -the Greenville police,
witlr the assistance of our efficient chief,
J. HL Gaillard, succeeded on Friday
last, in this town, in arresting Edward
Watson and Walter Jackson, members
of the gang who have been for many
months committing thefts and murder
in Greenville and elsewhere. Capt.
Greer, on the strength of the confession
made by Aif. Walker, had -been in
search of these men for some days, but
had no idea that they were in Newber
ry, until informed of the suspicions en
tertained of these two men. As soon
as they were described, he became son
vinced they were the birds, and they
were arrested, the one, Watson, in a
store where he had just bought powder
and buck shot, and the other, Jackson,
in the office of Messrs. Pope, Pope &
Fair, where he had gone to condone
with his confederate, innocently dream
ing that he was not known or suspected,
Jackson is said to be the p)rincipal of
the gang, and the worst character in it.
- They are both now lodged in jail.
SAfter a preliminary hearing before
,Judge Moses, on the question of admit
-ting to bail, it was decided to postpone
Sthe case until Saturday next. In the
meantime the Sheriff has guaranteed tc
- keep the rascals safe. It is the general
-opinion that they should have been al
Sonce turned over toeCapt. Greer, and1
we coincide in this opinion. That they
are of the~ gang and are guilty there is
)very liidle doubt, and the fact of the pur
a chase of back shot of the largest size, ih
- proof enough that they were up to some
- wrong then, even if they had not before
.1 been engaged in it. We trust no ob
struction will be placed in the way ol
their removal to Greenville, where thiey
by every reason of law and right now~
belong, and that they may speedily
meet with the deserts which their crimes
entitle them to. Newberry has no use
for them, nor any right to hold them

In consequence of the cold snap,
Speck's soda water was not in great
demand last week, and so great the
demoralization he was afraid to offer
the public any ice cream.
There are twenty-one lawyers in the
city of Newberry. Let us pray.
Eggs from the White Leghorn chick

Business was right sharp brisk during
a portion of last week.
Many of our farmers have done the
right thing by planting largely of corn.
They will reap their reward.
The uncommon activity of the farmers

"Have you any eggs?" inquired a
peaceful looking old man as he leaned
over the counter of a hardwure store
recently. "No sir,-this is a hardware
store; we keep nails, stoves, etc." an

some eggs," slowly drawled the old
man, "but I hain't particular, and you
may give me a pound of nails."
A woman called into- a commission
house in Detroit the other day, and
made for the rear end of the store with
out waiting to speak to any-one. The
proprietor followed her and inquired,
"Did you wish to look at some butter,
madam ?" "No, sir," she curtly re
plied. "Want some eggs?" he contin
ued. "No, sir." "Praps you'd like
some of these dried peaches?" "No,
sir." There was a painful pause, but
she braced her nerves and said, "There's
something w-wrong with-with my

House, yesterday, at 12 o'clock, result

Glover, and the slight wounding of
the two Stevenson brothers. It appears
that the Stevensons were tenants of
Glover, and all parties had repaired to

arose, and, as we are informed, Glover
was shot down; while on the ground,
he used his pistol on the brothers,
wounding them both slightly. The
firing was returned,, and he received
his death wound after being so severe
ly wounded that he could not rise.
Altogether there were about fifteen
shots fired. The Stevensons attempted
to escape, buL were arrested and lodged
