Flower Thoughts and Fancies.
Somebody says that flowers are the
"fugitive poetry of nature;" and tc
wild flowers most eminently belongs
the remark. Our cultivated flowers
can not be called "fugitive poetry,'
we do not find them scattered along
the roadsides, smiling to the brooks
nodding on hills to every breeze.
Not they ! They are collected -and
placed in our houses and conser
vatories, labeled, and surrounded by
the costly aceessories which belong tc
all volumes of collected poetry.
But with wild flowers it is differ

A terrific tornado passed over Col
umbla between 5 and 6 o'clock on
Y- Saturday afternoon last, by which im
mense damage was done to property,
the full extent of which is not yet
st ascertained. It pursued an easterly
r course, and lasted half an hour. With
the furious wind there was an immeuse
fall of rain, with much hail, lightning
o- 1 and thunder. The sky-light of the
i- market was blown off and market pro
es duce scattered in every direction ; the
In steeple of the Presbyterian Church
h was demolisbed, and timbers driven
ie through the ceiling; a portion of the
a- roof of Mr. J. H. Kinard's house was
e blown in ; the roof of the carriage shop
corner of Washington and Assembly
)d streets was carried off, and the walls
h broken; the handsome Iron Palmetto
e Tree in front of the State House de
j stroyed, and a portion of the roof of
at the State House torn off. An enum
id eration, however, of the nany build
>n ings damaged would occupy too much
n' space, and we only add that the effects
of the storm were of a fearful and
th destructive character, but fortunately
ay there was no loss of life.
VS Good Advice.
as When it seemed certain that the
jury in the News and Courier libel
ne ase could not agree, and after it was
ty determined to discharge them, Judge
k- Reed said "that if they felt confident
s that they could not come to an agree
ment they would now be discharged.
al Before discharging them, however, he
at would like to recount to* them an
e- incident of a jury trial that happened
asome years ago in Georgia. It was a
rtrial for murder, in which the jury
~failed to agree upon a verdict. They
to were sent back to their room by the
er court, but still there was no agreement.
The panel was then questioned as to
d the difficulty, and it was ascertained
r that eleven of the jury were for ac
en quittal and one for conviction. On
as being questioned as to his persistence,
lethe solitary juror for conviction de
d,' elared that he had never met eleve:
m such contrary men in. his life. Gen
s. tlemen, said Judge Reed, I repeat
er this anecdote, because it has been
- rumored that there is one man on your
so jury who is hanging your pane). This
it is the rumor all over the streets. If
re it is the fact it must come out ; you
il are not sworn to secrecy. You have
all sworn that you had not made up
your minds and were not conscious of
any bias or prejudice. If it is shown
that any one man on that panel has
been tampered with, or went into that
lR box with his mind miade up, I shall
ITsee that he is made an example of to
a- all others, to show that they can't
go into a jury box in this county with
their minds made up without being
e dealt with as they deserve. My en
deavor has been and shall be to purify
as the jury .box in my circuit, so far as I
e am able, and to administer the law
ewith justice and fairness to all."
Lr The Edgefield Advertiser' says:
ci"The grandest and most liberal private
is entertainment which Edgefield has
in seen since the war was given by Miss
*n Lizzie Hollingsworth at her father's
hbeautiful home, "Wildwood," two and
a half miles from town, on Thursday
ee night last. Upwards of two hundred
id invitations were issued, and the young
:is and gay were out en masse- a merry,
O laughing, quaffin g, handsome, well
idd'dressed crew. Mrs. and Miss Hol
n- lingsworth arc ladies of very cultivated
2e taste, and consequently no one was
e surprised to see beautiful harmony in
all the elaborate decorations, arrange
er ments and surroundings. The supper
dwas literally worthy of the salle of
e the Princess Metternich in Paris ; and
hb the occasion was so particularly rose
colored throughout as to impress itself
?, for long years to come upon the minds
ul of our jeunesse doree."
s The Adt'ertiser says truly that the
s' ladies mentioned are of very cultivated
. t.aste, and knowing them as wve do, we
id are satisfied that the entertainment
i-- was an elegant one, and a pleasant one
r-to be at.
sThe arrest of Niles G. Parker and
Shis imprisonment induces the hope
rd that there will be developments. Hie
as threatens that if he is not set at liberty
dthat he will tell some tales. There is
a-no doubt but that he can. Whether

time since an article in the HERALD
against "our hats." Now, we did not
I like it, but would have passed it over
r in silence, if it had not been for ano
e ther this week against "our dresses."
- Now, Mr. Editor, can't you let us
e alone? Can't you let us dress as we
- please ? It is one of our chief pleasures,
so do let us enjoy it. It is "come out
r of those hats," and "just as well be in
sa corn sack." Now, that is a nice
o place for a lady, isn't it? If you want
s to talk about anybody, talk about the
s men-they can protect themselves and
e we cannot. And mercy knows you
can find enough aginst them to both
talk and write about. Now do for
d pity's sake let us alone, and let us
a dress as we like. We don't dress to
please the men, we dress to aggravate
each other. A LADY.
d Now, did anybody ever.? Let them
e alone indeed, the proposition is ab
e surd. We were brought up in a dif
n ferent school altogether. We love the
ladies too much for. that, and for that
reason would have them dress to please
g the gentlemen, which we have always
.e believed was one of the chief ends
i- aimed at. We do not dispute the
k point that they dearly love to aggravate
e one another, oh no. The heathen
i- Chinee are sufficiently posted to know
that, and that it is not done by any ab
surdity of costume, but by the bewitch
n ing style of their loves of bonnets and
y dresses, the fineness of the material,
s and the cost of the same, together
with the number; these are the daggers
-which penetrate the tender points to
0 aggravation. We hold that the primc
object is to please the g.entlemen, it is
natural; and to do so they should con
a tinue to look their prettiest, as in the
_wood old days. The gentlemen have
been accustomed to look on the ladies
-as angels, and no one has "ever sighed
-. or sought for change." It won't do,
s ladies; by the love we bear for you,
in memor~y of the dear past, the hope

DE DEAR HERALD :-'Twas my good for
>i tune to attend a three days' meeting at
i Bethel Church, in the lower part of this
dCounty. It was indeed a meeting long
in to be remembered-conducted by Rev.
e J. M. Boyd, Pastor, and assisted by his
father, Uncle Mark. The Boyd's are
too well known in Newberry for me to
attempt to describe them here.
5The meeting commenced on Friday,
h but it rained nearly all day, so I did not
eattend until Saturday and Sunday.
e Saturday I was in time to hear some
excellent singing by the Bethel Singing
e School. This school, under the man
agenmen t .f R. H. Jennings, a most
t- efficient ceacher, has improved wonder
fully in the last year. and is an honor
's to the whole neighborhood. After sing
inmg, we had a good sermon from Uncle
Marion-of course it was good, who ever
heard him pr-each a bad one? We spent
t, Saturday afternoon and night at the
Parsonage. There were only fourteen
r of us there that night, but the "more
7 the merrier." Uncle Mark entertained
e us with his old time jokes until dinner
-was announced. We saw no servants
-. during our stay there, but everything
was kept in the most perfect order by
r the three young ladies of Mr. Boyd's
s house. Thei e is the place for a good
Sman to get a good wife. Sunday morn
n ing we were at church early, to witness
h the Sunday School; and we were not
1 disappointed. 'Tis a large, well-organ
- ized school, the best we ever saw in the
country. Has nine teachers and sixty
g three scholars. Old and young belong
B- to the school-some dear little babies
1that can't speak plain, but to hear them
h recite their lessons would sulrprise you.
We were there in time for roll-call, aind
y almost every one answered to their'
names. Two or three young men came
~)in after the classes commenced to recite,
rbut the extra shine of their boots and(
ethe exceeding care in which their heads
were combed and cravats tied was a
Le sufficient excuse with them for lateness.
d After Sunday School, we had a good,
~s old-fashioned sermon from Uncle Mark.
After that was Communion, and such a
,Communion-five times was the large
i-table filled. Perhaps we should not
d mention it just here, but we could not

11 day night we had Love Feast, and such
a Love Feast-soul-reviving, heart-stir

scene of our meeting.

Wednesday, 21st. Monday at 8 o'clock a.m

Prof. 1). B. Bushy. Part of the examinins

nderwent a very rigid course ot questioning
Late and last in the evening we heard "tentl
lass" echo from the doors of the Academy
Soon this class assumed its seat before th
committee. Greek Grammar and readin
were the studies on which it had to be ques
tioned. The members of the class answere<
well, considering that they were questione<
Dn the greater part of Bullion's English, a:
well as considerable portions of Kendrick'
Greek Grammar. On Tuesday, at 8 o'clock
the examination was opened as usual witl
prayer by Prof. Busby. The members dic
themselves justice, considering the limite
review they had. This day ended like th<
irst, with a very small attendance. The onli
amusement the students seemed to enjo!
Monday and Tuesday was the delightfu
ame of croquet, played by the members o
the tenth and thirteenth classes at noon.
Weduesday was more encouraging, not a
being the last, but this was a day of mor,
enjoyment to the students, and as the latte
part of it was given to them for their exhi
bition, was more effectual in drawing al
audience. Despite the inclement weathe
the crowd assembled within the doors of th,
Academy. Afternoon, the Society (Bethel
elected as its President, Prof. Busby. J
Committee of five to decide the question t
be debated by the Society was chosen, con
sisting of Messrs. T. W. Holloway, T. T
Wicker, J. A. Cannon, J. X. Berly and Davii
After comfortably seating the audienci
Master Geo. L. DeHihns appeared before il
The young orator did himself credit and lei
his listeners in an uproar of laughter. The:
came Miss Mary Holloway and Master Erne
Cannon in succession. "My Mother's Gol,
Ring," (dialogue), by. Masters Johnnie Wicb
er and Wm. W. Berly was well acted. Mi
J. L. Epting was then called upon to occup;
the "rostrnm" with his "Midnight Murder.
Mr. Epting delivered his piece very well wit
the exception that he had not committed th
first of it to memory as well as he migh
have done. "The Spelling Lesson," dialoga(
by Messrs. John F. Hobbs, J. M. Alewin(
Misses Chicora F. Holloway and Anna BI
Counts, was well acted, especially the chai
acter by Miss Holloway, who appeared to b
an accomplished actress. Master Lawrenc
D. Wicker then spoke his laughable extrac
"My Mother's old Flesh Brush." I will d
the young orator the justice to say that h
spoke well. The dialogues, "Boy, whoi
your Father?" by Masters L. D. Wicker arn
Ernest Cannon, and the "New Preacher," b
Messrs. W. C. Dreher, J. E. Berly, J.]I
Hobbs, Win. T. Cannon, Luther Mille'r, an
J. L. Epting had ample justice done then
and had the desired effect upon the audiene
and we were very much delighted with th
extracts by Master Charlie DeHihns, Mis
Elizabeth M. Counts, and the dialogue b
Masters Joseph DeHihns and Jabez G. Car
non. As the young orators and lively dis
loguists had done their part, the debate the
came next in order. Subject-"Is ambitio
a blessing or a curse to mankind?" Affirm:

and Irenius L. Epting. Negative-Messr!
J. M. Alewine, John E. Berly and Win. I
Cannon. After awaiting the laughter arouse
by the speakers and dialoguists to subside
the debate was opened by Messrs. W. (
Dreher on the affirmative side of the que!
ton. During his twenty minutes speech h
showed not only the honors won and th
illustrious men ambition has made, but th
good of it in every day life. Mr. Dreher the
resumed his seat. Mr. .T. M. Alewine the
appeared before the audience, with his fiftee
minutes speech, in defence of the negative
His arguments and most elaborate speec
were received with marked attention. M:
. F Hobbs was then called upon to speak i
behalf of the affirmative. Th is young oratC
in a speech of eighteen minutes did the sul
ject ample justice. While the other speaker
were making use of every day life and ancier
literature, he confined himself more partici
larly to Ancieut and Molern History. Ever
word of his speech was listened to with pel
lect silence. Mr. J. E. Berly was then calle
upon to defend the negative side of the quel
tion. Mr. Berly begged to be excused, as h
was not prepared to debate the question
Mr. Cannon was then called upon, but begge
to be excused as he too was not prepared
Mr. J. L. Epting next appeared before th'
audience in defence of the affirmative. Ma
Epting asked why the others did not defen<
their side of the question, and was answere<
that they did not have the ambition to ris
before such an intelligent audience, whici
brought a shout of applause from the spec
tators. Then for about a half an hour the
members debated each side of the questiota
Mr. Alewine made a motion, seconded b;
Mr. Dreber, for a decision of the. subjec1
The Committee retired, and on returning. Da
J. A. Berly acting as chairman, decided i
favor of the affirmative. Thus ended thi
pleasant exercises. O3IEGA.
THE DEAD HEAD QUESTION.

by the press about dead heads. W<
think many of our contemporaries en

on which all their remarks on thi
ubject should be based, which is
What is a dead head ? The answe
is a simple- one; he who -obtains
through importunity, something fo
nothing whether a puff in a newspaper
a railroad, or steamboat pass, or
theatre, concert or lecture ticket, o
any other thing universally paid fo
by decent people. Now can editors
~ecause they receive many compli
entary tickets and passes, be proper
yclyessed with the great army o
deadheads-those contemuptibly meat
creatures who are ever on thme alert t<
get something for nothing ? We uni
hesitatingly and most emphatically au
swr, No ! and do so on the grounc
that every courte~sy shown au editor
in the way of tickets and passes, is
paid for at least ten times over in th<
way of editorial or other advertise
