it until payment is made, and collect the
whole amount, whether it is taken from the
office or not. The Courts have decided that
refusing to take newspapers and periodicals
from the Post Office, or removing and leav
lng them uncalled for, is primafacie evidence
of intestonal fraud. 44-tf.

COME OUT OF THAT HAT.-It was
our fortune to be in Columbia on last
Friday, and, of course, as a representa
tive of the important city of Newbrry,
we tried to make a respectable appear
ance, and imagined that the effort was
entirely successful. How could it be
otherwise, we had on our best store
clothes and most elegant manners. It
was only when we met the other New
berry representative, the one front the
Hardware Store on Mollohon Row. that
there was any misgiving on the subject.
His style was a trifle more striking, and
his get up more elaborate, particularly
in the curl of his moustache and the
twirl of his cane, but fortunately we did
not meet often. With~ that pxception
our progress up Main Street was a sup
cess until reaching the magnificent es
tablishment of Messrs. Kinard & Wiley,
a voice was heard issuing from the por
tal, "come out of that hat !" What hat
ad( who-there was rio one else -about
at the time-was the remark intended
for us? Surely not. Looking in, there
stood Kinard, with long flowing, raven
beard, and Wiley, who affects the pipar,
shave. "Was that remark intended for
us?" On being assured of the fact, we
went in with the intention of getting
satifaption, and got it without any dif
ficulty,for both gentlemen saw that~thsrs
was no use in trying to get. OUt of it.
They apologised and commenced show
ing one of the most elegant stocks of
hats ever seen, and one of the knobbiest
being found to lit our head it was re
quested that it be allowed to remain.
We couMd not refuse-it would have
~pained them. The climax was capped
very pleasantly-nor was this the only
pleasant thing said or done. Taking a
retrospect now without any hard feel
ings to either of tiles gentlemen we
feel that we cannot do less than say that
they have an unusually large stock of
lothing and gentlemen's outfitting gen
erally, of all styles and qualities and at
very reasonable prices. Gentlemen
fisiting the city ave advised to look in
on them and examine their stock..
The G. & C. R. Ri. held its annual
meeting in Columbia last week, and in
consequence, many from the up-cguntry
availed themselves of th1e privilege of
a free ride down to see the sights.
There were only a few happy souls, how
ever. The HERALD contributed to swell
the number, On thep way down there
was the usual variety-the passenger
coach filled with all kinds of people. It
is always thus-there is no place where
so much variety of character can be
found as ir, a full railroad car. On this
occasion there were lively men, with
melancholy counterparts as dull as dish
water. As to the ladies, we will only
say that there were several on board,
and one particularly bright, who knew
thz: she was pretty-how soon they
find it out. We imagined she was
on a trial trip to the city and looked
forard to a heap of fun, and we sin
erely trust her dream was realized.
We would have invested a few nickles
and a heap of time to have contributed
to her happiness, Thore were two Ia
dies with everlasting and huge appetites
-chicken, pie, apples, &c., disappeared
with astonishing rapidity, and to the
annoyance of a hungry insurance agent
in an op)posite seat. We felt sorrj for
hii and for the girls, lest lie should
collapse from emptiness or they should
burst from surfeit. Of course there
were babies on lboard, and some of the
crying kind, and one of the little fellows
was particularly a vocalist, his scream
could be heard~ loud, shrill and clear
over all othor sounds-there were sev
eral on board, and one a lady in mourn
ing, who thought a spanking would
have been highly advantageous. There
was a couple who ate an orange be
tween them, and as it was a very small
one the man took in rind and pulp to
gether. No doubt he thought it was all
right. On the way down, and before
reaching Alston, from the window was
seen two ploughs hitched to one horse,
and the animal not in robust health,
either; a colored man and woman held
to the hand,m and no doubt thought
we embraced the occasion and the ba
bies, paid marke(1 attention to the la
dies, roast turkey and baked pig, and
was sorry when Mr. Land, the Conduc
tor, concluded to start his wagon, Sor
ry, too, that the invitation to remain and
dance a polka with the old lady that
night could not be accepted. We left
bright smiles of ladies and savory odors
-there was no help for it-and with
food for reflection and digestion rolled
on to Columbia.
There were quite a number of visit
ors in the city. They must have all
gone down for fun and not business, for
trade was flat. Meeting a prominent
hotelist, we congratulated him on the
influx of visitors and the good thing the
Railroad meeting threw into his way.
"In a cow's horn," said he, "why do
you know that it is nothing but a crowd
of carpet-baggers who are here with
cold lunches?" We had not thought of
it. But it was so. And in proof, there
weie ten men who rented a roon, for
one dollar, each contributing ten cents
to the fund, and who fed on cold bis
cnits and ham. The hotels of course
did not realize out of them. Whether
it was the same party who went to Mc
Kenzie's saloon and called for a saucer
of cream, and each man drawing his:
own spoon, we know not, nor the same
who called for a drink in a liquor shop
and divided it with six others. This is
narrowing down expenses, certainly,
and an economy altogether new, but
the times are tight and retrenchment is
