The necessity fo.r life insurance was never
so great as at present. The: poverty of onj
people is a strQng argumetit to induce them
to husband their resources to make provision
for the necessities of their wives and chil
dren, and by no means can one so effectually
make the provision as by a policy of life
insurance in a strong and reliable and wel
tested company. Such a company we have
in thp Piedmont and Arliagton. It has con.
ducted its business in tbis State for nine
years, and secured a larger business than any
,other company in the South. It meets its
claims promptly; it invests its assets in sound
securities; and altogether conducts its busi
ness upon plans ascertained by long expe
rience to be sound and equitable. (eowj

ARmVED.-Coming events cast their
shadows before, and the arrival' of the
diminutive Phseton, Shetland ponies of
the smallest kind and the pigoy driver,
who like the ponies is as black as
Ethiop, give earnest that the General
and followers are on the way. The in

in as we prepare for press. The entire

five hundred bushels of corn were re

We trust that no such report will have
to be made after the crop now planted

NEGRO KToLE.-On Friday night
last, near Gibson's Store, in this Coun
ty, two negroes had an altercation, the
result of which was that one of them,
Henry Chambers, was found dead in
the road on Saturday morning. The
supposition is that his death was caused
by a blow from a pine club. The name
of the other has not~ been learned.

STEALING.--On Friday night last, the
store house of Mr. S. C. Merchant, liv
ing about one mile above Helena, was
broken into~and robbed of a quantity of
meat and other provisions. In view of
the hard times and scarcity, it is par
ticularly aggravating to be raided on
by worthless rascals who only live by
what they can steal. We trust that

A number of young men met on Mon

themselves into a Democratic Club, and
appointed Mr. S. B. Fowles, Chairman.
After various expressions of views it
was determined to meet on next Satur
day evening for regular organization,
Messrs. Ward Simm'ons, J. R. David
son and J. S. Fair were appointed a
committee to make arrangements for
said meeting. This Club is not to be in
conflict with the regular organization
of this Township, but rather auxiliary
to it. -

Messrs. McCreery, Love & Co., con

some of the readers of the HERAL.D
haVe not yet seen their card, but this is
not very probable, for it is the fashion
now to read the advertisements if they
is no time to read anything else in the
papers, a fashion rendered absolutely
necessary by the tight times and the
public anxiety to find out who has the
cheapsst goods and the greatest variety.
As these gentlemen mean what they
say, and their advertisement is printed,
that kl may be seen and read, attention
is again called to it. 1t.

The rather unusual appearance on
our streets a few days ago of .a sturdy,
chunky, and apparently half-grown bo
vine attracted no little attention. Alas!
that one little animal should so excite
the people. Men and boys rushed out.
and with hungry eyes devoured it in
imagination, because they knew it wa
destined for the shambles, and in the
morning would be hung up in one of
the many stalls of the market for sale.
It was difficult to discover whether it
was of full age and stunted in growth,
or young and of rapid development,
and it mattered little, for it seemed to
be in fair order, The last thought as
Newberry retired to bed that night was
the hope of an early waking in the
morning. "Wake me early, mother,"
was the general sentiment, that a choice
cut might be had. The thought of miss
ing the chanee kept us in a restless con
dition through the night, and the conse
quence was that when sleep did come
we were only waked too late by a dream

CLOTHING AT COST AN? UNDER.
Bargains to be had right at your own
doors without any trouble. All you have
to do is to go to Messrs. Wright & Cop
pock's with a small amount of cash.
These gentlemen offer goods carried
over from last Summer at cost and un
der. Their stock, too, of freshly arrived
goods is complete and attractive not
only in style and quality but in prices.
The long established reputation of this
house is sufficient guarantee that what
these gentlemen say may be relied on.
At Cost and under for cash is without a
doubt just what it reads and nothing
less. The reader is advised to SUIT
himself now without delay.
TO THE GENTLEMEN.-The popular
clothing and outfitting establishment of
Messrs. R. & W. C. Swaffield, of Col
umbia, is once more. brought before the
public and especially of Newberry, in
an attractive and interesting card in
this issue. The Spring and Summer
stock of clothing for gents' and youth
is large and well selected, and offered
in accordafice with the prevailing cus
tom at extraordinary low prices. Messrs.
Swaffield, father and son, are so well
known to our readers that it is unneces
sary for us to say more in their behalf,
than to call attention to the advertise
ment. We take pleasure in adding
that Maj. Beck, who holds a large place
in the public esteem, still presides in
this establishmen t.
LN THE WRONG PEw.-Formerly
there was but one open door between
Chick's corner and O'Neill's, and that
was the Post office, and all that people in
quest of mail matter had to do was to
follow their nose and go in at that open
ing. Lately, however, there has been
improvement-another door stands in
vitingly open and this leads to the new
barber shop, so it won't do now to fol
low the leading of one's nose, you must
use the eye as well. Tobe, the proprie
tor of the latter establishment, is sore
on the subject, and hopes that no one in
future will rush into his place for the
Post office and attempt to insert their
box keys into the openings on his face.
There is no look of patent brass loc}t
box about him. See the striped pole
outside and enter at the next door.
PROF. DENCK'S SOIREE.-Owing to
the fact that several societies had their
meeting on the night of- the perform
ance, but few enjoyed this delightful
entertainment; the appreciation of the
audience, however, .was in the inverse
ratio of their numbers; not a whisper
was heard when the Professor presented
to us in turn with masterly skill the
Coryphees of modern piano music; his
own improvisations, with which the
compositions of others were interspersed,
wete not the least charming pieces of
the programme. We hope that the
Professor may be induced to give us in
the near future another of those classical
soirees, when the selection of the time
may be more fortunate. If the friends
of good music would combine for that
purpose, we might revive that culti
vated artistic taste for which Newberry
was famous in days of yore.
A TOWNSHIP MEETING.-LaSt week
when we were taking our first Spring
walk, we saw just on the outskirts of
the town about fifty crows, all perched'
on the same tree seemingly in lively
conversation; they were evidently in
council assembled. From the locality,
we could not be mistaken it was their
township meeting, for what purpose
called we could not determine, possibly
for the organization of a board of edu
cation to teach the young crows oratory
and honesty. We were very much
struck ~with the order and good feeling
which seemed to prevail. It must be
confessed they made very short speeches,
so that it appeared sometimes as if a
good many were talking together; but
then they are doubtless able to express
their ideas more concisely than we can.
They were animated but never angry;
not a harsh word was spoken; we saw
no violent gestured; we are certain we
heard no cursing. One of them perched
on top acted evidently as chairman; he
cawed no louder than the rest, and
everybody seemed to take it for granted
that they had to obey him without his
continually calling them to order. Af
ter they got thi-ough with their deliber
ations, a motion to adjourn was unani
mously carried, for they all took wing
at once and n)eannfLally flew off to attend!
A WAIL comes up from the Cannon'
Creek Grange section, that in the inten
sity of their ambition to plant ever
available foot of ground in corn, th,
farmers have sprouted up the ver
blackberry bushes which grew on ditel
sides and in fence corners, and as a con
sequence there will be a lamentable fal

is indeed a gloomy picture, but it ha
notwithstanding a silver lining; througl
the rift of the dark cloud we see th,
shining corn, almost hear the wavin,
tassels and see the heavy ears hangin(
from the stalk. The blackberry seasoi
is brief in duration, and Cannon Grangi

f Dragging Out Existence.
SThe nervous, weakly invalid does not en
) joy life, but merely "drag.- out existence,"
as the phrase is. Un6tted for the active pur
suits of life, and incapable of partakin<r of its
I pleasures, to which health alone can give a
zest; disinclined to social intercourse, and a
prey to melancholy, the valetudinarian is in
t deed an object of pit.y. Yet there is nothing
in all this that can ;fbt be remedied, by that
a genial alterative tonic and nervine, Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters. which supplies deti
.cient, stamina, braces the nervous system,
IandI overcomes those bodily irregularities to
Swhich nervous weakness is most frequently
attributable. Diseases of the kidney and
b bladder, imperfect digestion and uterine
troubles are fertile sources of debility. Their
eradication, however, becomes a matter of
r certainty when Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
are systematically used for that purpose.
The Bitters likewise annihilate and prevent
Lfever and agne and other debilitating febrile
Scomplaints of a malarial nature. 14-4t.
