visited this community and taken from
its midst one whose beautiful life and
virtues of character had endeared her
to :l-Mrs. Br:rTIE WAILAW, second
daughter of the late Col. Robt. Moor
man, and wife of Mr. J. C. Wardlaw.
This sad disnensation of providence oc- I
eurred on Wednesday last. Her illness
was long and painful, but she bore it
all with a patient resignation and for
titude which gave evidence of her strong
Christian faith and willingness to ac
cept the Master's will. The fountains
of grief had scarce ceased to flow, by
reason of recent afflictions, when now
her sorrowing and strieken family weep
afresh in the death of this young and
amiable member of the devoted cir@le.
The deceased was but on the thresh
hold of life, and had only entered upon
some of its sterner duties and realities.
As a wife and mother and a professor
of religion, as in all the relations of
life, her character shone pre-eminently
bright; and having lived her short life
so acceptably, her family and friends
have the assurance that she is reaping
her reward in "the Christian's home in
(rlorv," and rejoices in meeting the
many loved ones who before her enter
ed the Heavenly Mansions. Our sym
pathies are extended to the family.

ON -rM FENCi-Yot much interest
manifested on either side of the fence
law. This is probably owing to the
fact that the county is in such a disor
ganized state that the people don't
know how to proceed. And it does
seem that nothing could be done now;
for the law requires the petition for the
election on the question to be presented
to the County Commissioners, and New
berry has only one County Commis
sioner, the others not having quali
fied within the time required by law.
How?--The Kcowcc Couricr, speak
ing of the College exercises at Walhal
la, says: "An interesting lecture to
young men was delivered by Rev. Mr.
Shirey, of Newberry, from the text,
'Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse
We don't know what the speaker re
commended as the best means for ac
complishing that desirable object; but
we have never yet heard of anything
that can beat soap and water.
The Courier man must have been
nodding-the text was "Wherewithal
shall a young man cleanse his ways."
WHY Is THIS THUS?-Judge Daven
port, the step-child murderer, has. not
yet been arrested, though lie is still
prowling about the County. Burrel
Davenport is still out also, He is the
negro who stole Mrs. Keller's cow the
1st of April, and is guilty of other
crimes. He escaped jail May 2d. le,
too, is prowling about the County.
Other people see them, but the Sheriff
and constables either cannot or do not.
I Sunday afternoon the children of Mr.
Nathan H. Bouknight saw both these
negroes on the Pope place, between
Newberry and Helena, where their
families live. Yesterday (Monday)
afternoon the officers went out there to
look for them, but didn't find them.
Last night Mr. Bouknight had his plows
and heel-bolts stolen from his field and
the plowstocks were carried off and
hidden in the woods. He attributes
this to the negroes, who probably
thought he had given information of
their whereabouts, and took this method
to get revenge.
Can't these negroes be caught?

IA VISIT TO PIZOSPERITY.
WHEELER & 31OSELEY'S LARGE STORE
'MILL AND 3MILLIONAIRES-WHY THE
AN EXA1PLE TO *MALE DRONES
-CAPT. U. n. WIIITES
Our periodical visit to Prosperity was;
made on Tuesday last, and right pleas-i
ant it proved. The pressure of busi-I
ness being off, ample time and oppor
tunitv was afforded her citizens to give
us a warm reception-largely assisted
by the sun which shone fiercely over the
quiet plazza between the depot and the
business portion of the town. Every
body said it was hot, and rather than
mar the peace we agreed that it was.
Seeking the coolest spot in the immense
establishment of Messrs.
WHEELER & MOSELEY,
anchor wAs dropped and preparation
made to receive the on dits of the lively
town and its clever inhabitants. We
were pleased to find these gentle
men, in spite of the business depres
sion, buoyant and serene, and doing a
faii business, with a large and complete
stock. What with their merchandise
and their mill, both affording revenues
not to be sneezed at in these times, we
take pleasure in ranking them among
The mill, which makes as fine flour as
any in the country, commenced opera
tions for the season Wednesday morn
ing, the first load of new wheat just
coming in. The "jolly miller" in that
institution is Mr. Hack Cannon, who is

his premises literally swarm with
chickens, abound in eggs, and run over
in milk, not to mention other good
NOSED THAT PLACE
and lodged there, and consequently
knew when the mill started by the
whistle which Sim Mathis, formerly of
this place, delights in blowing. As he
married a new and charming little
wife, not long enough ago to make him
indifferent as to imparting to her the
knowledge of his whereabbuts. we nat
urally supposed that prolonged whistle
was made for a purpose-an im
proved Tclephone-or he may sim
plv love to hear his machine screech
and wake the echoes in the early morn
ing. Speakmg of mills brings us to the
interesting fact that a
DOUNTEOUS YIELD OF WHEAT
has blessed the farmer. We name a
few of whom cheering reports were
had: J. B. Fellers from a sowing of
4 1-2 realized 98 bushels of clean wheat;
J. A. Rikard, from 123 shocks, 122 1-2
bushels; A. A. Nates, from 120 shocks,
106 bushels, and S. C. Barre, from a
sowing of 3 1-2, has 64 bushels to be
round up for biscuit and other nice
hings peculiar to Prosperity. This is
just a sample of what, might be given if
we had had time to hunt the items. It
is wvell, however, we did not, for there
would be no space to tell of other mat
ters of which Prosperity is justly proud.
One of the happiest is that there dwell
in reach of the sound of the whistle four
widows whose names and deeds should
be printed in letters of gold. We shall
tell of them-to spare blushes-first as
No. 1. This lady-as in fact all the
others-lost her husband during the
war and was left in straightened cir
cumstance. Did she sit dowvn and
orieve at her hard fate? By no means.
She has raised four children, besides
fine crops, and to-day she has much of
last year's cotton and flour on hand, is
- free from debt and is able to pay cash
dowvn for what she buys. -
I No. 2 looks complacently on all of
her last crop of cotton, and with a sense
I of perfect rest and absolute fullness on
three thousand pounds of tlour, neither
t of which she has sold because she had
no use for the money-here's a wvidow
,for you. The only thing which disturbs
her rest now is what to do with her
new fodder, every place being occupied
with the old. She might dispose of
some of it to the editor of the HERALD,
-who has been standing to the rack for
three years, fodder or no fodder. She
too, like a true woman, has raised chil
- dren and set them up under their own
vines and fig trees.
-No. 3 struggled through the years
I which have rolled on since the late un
pleasantness, raised six children, given
Seach at majority $500 in cash. Last
year she bought a tract of land for
which $1,400 in good money was paid.
-.Has corn, fodder and other things in
.No. 4, like unto the others, has made
.t a splendid fight and brought up a large
s family in the way they should go, has
of last year's crops abundance, pays
a cash in trade and loans her earnings
-out on interest.

GREAT MERIT IN~ FEMALE DISEAS]

NEWnERRY COUNTY, S. C.,
June 27th, 1877.
MEssr.s. EntTORS: I take pleasure in in
forming the citizens of this County that
there is now a fine opportunity to get their
grain (both wheat and oats) threshed. The
Hon. Ellison S. Keitt has brought to this
County the fl:iesc Engina and Separator
known to the Southern people. The En- t
gine is one of Messrs. Wood, Taber & T
Morse's best 6 horse, at a cost of nine hun
dred dollars. The Separator is "Farquhar's
Improved," made by direction of the Cap
tain at a cost of $265.00. It threshes
wheat wet as well as dry-and the spikes
are so arranged as not to break the grains.
It severs all cheat and cockle from the
wheat; is capable of threshing from 50 to
60 bushels per hour.
The entire machine is operated by the
Captain's son, Mr. E. G. Keitt and Capt.
D. A. Dickert. The former a young man
of energy and engineering experience, the
latter a man of equal energy and six years
experience in the threshing business, and
too well known in Newberry to need a re
commendation froni any one for integrity
of character or anything else.
The s.tme Engine that runs this machine
has been owned ar.d used by Capt. E. S.
Keitt for 4 years, both in ginning his cot
ton crops (which have been immerse) and
threshing for the public-and has needed
no repairs during the time. An addition
has been made to the Engine recently by
putting a "patent blower" on it, thereby
saving time in raising steam, taking only
30 minutes to raise steam from cold water
and cold fire place.
I think the people of the county are due
and ought to tender by their patronage
their thanks to the philanthr)pic Capt. El
lison S. Keitt for his liberality and good
judgment in selecting and bringing to the
county such labor-saving machinery, be
cause FEw men have been ABLE an,l FFWER
WILLIsG at their own expense to bring such
labor-saving machines at such a heavy out
lay of money.
I consider the ontire machine a success
and benefit to the County.

What the Bilious Require.
-Since torpidity of the liver is the chief cause
of its disorder, it is evident that what the bil
ious require is an alterative stimulant which
t will arouse it to activity, an effbet that is fol
lowed by the disappearance of the varions
symptoms indicative of its derangement.
3Hostetter's Stomach Bitters invariably
achieve the primary result mentioned, be
sides removing the constipation, flatulence,
heartburn, yellowness of the skin and whites
of the eyes, pain in the right side and under
fthe right shoulder, nausea, vertigo and sick
headache, to which bilious invalids are pecu
ciarly subject. .As a remiedy for chronic indi
gestion, mental despondency and nervous
ness the Bitters are equally efficacious, and
as a renovant of lost vigor, a means of arrest
ing premature decay, and a source of relief
-from the infirmities to which the gentler sex
-is peculiarly subject, they may be thoronghly
relied upon. 27-4t
