THE NEW POSTAL LA.-After the 1st of
January, 1875, editors have to prepay all the
papers from their office. Of course no pub
lisher can afford to pay postage for a subscri
ber in arrears. We give this timely notice
to all delinquents that we will not let their
names encumber our books after that period.
DEcISIONs OF THE COURTS.-Any person
who takes a paper regularly from the Post
Office-whether directed to his name or ano
ther, or whether he subscribed or not-,is re
sponsible for the pay. If a person orders Iis
paper discontinued he must pay all arrear
ages, or the publisher may continue to send
it until payment is made, and collect the
whole amount, whether it 4s taken from the
efice or not. The Courts have decided that
refusing to take newspapers and periodicals
from the Post Office, or removing and leav
ing them uncalled for, is prima facie evidence
of intentional fraud. 44-tf.
All single or transient business notices in
the local department are inserted at the rate
of fifteen cents per line-liberal contracts
made for three. six or twelve months. tf.
( TAKE NOTICE.-All parties having Ad
ministrator's or Executor's Notices for
publication, will save themselves trouble
tv coming prepared to pay for the same
be -re insertion, as our terms are cash.)
Lb ryers handing in such notices will be
held responsible for the payment.
They will also be held responsible for the
publication of all notices in Bankrupt cases.
Transient advertisements of any kind must
be paid for in advance, if the parties adyer
tising do not reside in town.
Job work and subscriptions strictly cash.
All papers shall be stopped hereafter as
soon as the term of subscription expires, un
less satisfactory arrangements are made to
continue the same.
The X mark denotes expiration-after that
the paper is discontinued.
Bear these things in mind. 3-tf,

How To PREPARE AND SERVE CU
CUMBERs.-When we were a little boy
-which happened some time ago-and
when we were laid up with an attack
of cholera morbus, ascribed by the doc
tor to a dose of cucumbers, we remem
ber distinctly a recipe for preparing and
serving cucumbers which the above
named doctor credited to the celebrated
Alexander Von Humbold. No cucum
bers prepared and served as by him
directed can injure the human system.
We have become convinced of it. To
the best of our recollection-and our
memory was fresh and retentive at the
time-the recipe is as follows:
Pluck the cucumbers early in the
morning before sunrise, while the dew
is still upon them. To keep them cool
in all the stages of preparation is a
miatter of main importance. Peel them
is the law directs, which means so as
to leave no vestige of the inner rind

THE Pic-Nic AT JALAPA.-A few
scores of ladies, gentlemen and un
fledged youth from Newberry andt
Helena, fusing with an equal number
of the fair and gallant of Jalapa, en
joyed a pic-nic season on Saturday last.
It was a question with Newberry and
Helena how the festive.ones from these
places would be able to get to the spot
selected, and but for the good fortune
that Mr. Meredith had to run his freight
down with a load of cotton and back
with bacon and flour, there would have
been not a little disappointment. For-1
tunately the freight came to the rescue
and many souls were made happy with
out interfering with the regular busi-1
ness of the'road, which progressed with
its usual dispatch. Like most affairs of1
this kind there were many out, quite a
variety in size and style of baskets and
trunks of good things, there was a big
and little fiddle also, and as a conse
quence, there was dancing under the
shade of the wide-spreading oak on the
public square, and in Mr. Swedenberg's
house, and young men and maidens
gave evidence by their red faices that
they were happy. There was an iced
lemonade stand, the refreshing fluid
dispensed by W. C. S., and an ice cream
stand furnished by Mr. L. R. M. The
dinner table just before the onslaught
looked charming, it was full, and fairly
groaned. A few moments afterwards,
however, it looked as if a cyclone had
swept it. We never witnessed such dis
patch before. After dinner there wasi
more dancing, lemonade, cream, a live
ly negro row about a missing table
cloth, and then one of those sudden
thunder storms with a deluge of rain,
which would have been pleasanter to
read about than experience. There
was a scamper for shelter, and the box
cars and stores were quickly filled. We
doubt if an hour could have been spent
with greater discomfort than was that
memorable hour in a close box ci,r, with
doors and windows as closely sealed as
a sardine box. After the storm, doors
and windows were opened, and the
dead and dying brought to life and to
town. From what we can learn nearly
all of the party sought bed at sundown,
and thus ended the Newberry-Helena

It is Not Generally Known
That the shortest possible route between
the South and Great West is through St.

surprising importance by reason of immense
expenditures in the last two years, of over
two million dollars, besides earnings, in im

line with best quality of new steel and iron
rails, on broad new ties, and substituting
for ordinary cars, new reclining chair coach
es, elegantly carpeted and fitted, with dress

dies, gentlemen and families traveling with
children, without any extra charge. This
line runs six fast Express trains between the 1
Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, two more
than any other road, and connects with all
the great Land Grant Roads in the West,
and has adopted all modern appliances for
comfort, speed and safeguards against acci
