Pleasant ride through the country, w<
drove out to Trinity Church. Trinity
is just seven miles from town in a west
erly direction; is one of .the charges o:
Rev. Thos. G. Herbert, and is surround
ed on allsides by farmers whose crop5
of corn and cotton are evidences of the
industry and enterprise of their owners.
With one or two exceptions the field:
aloug the road are free from grass, and
give promise of good yields.
Arriving at the Church we found the
Good Templars out in full force, for
this was the dag and the place for the
meeting of the County Lodge. The
people of the neighborhood had turne1
out largely. The number of young
men and ladies present was remarka
ble. And another remarkable feature
was the good looks of these young peo
ple. It would be hard to find in a simi
lar gathering more handsome gentle
men and pretty girls. Newberry was
well represented. Among theold folks
were Messrs. Moorman, Z. P. Moses,
Packer, Marshall and "Yours Truly,'
and Messrs. Moore, Fant, Gilder, Clark,
Duckett and Lindsay among the young
er ones, besides an equal number of
ladies-all young, of course.
The first part. of the programme was
the speeches. Mr. W. W. Waldrop,
the master of ceremonies for the day,
THOS. S. MOORMAN, ESQ.,
who in his earnest, practical way advo
cated the cause of temperance. Mr.
M., while a teetotaler himself, is not all
ultra in his views, but a strong advocate
of temperance in its true meaning. To
keep sober is the thing of great iim
portance, and whether this can be ac
complished by abstaining altogether oI
by moderation is a matter of minor con
sequence, not worth disputing about.
To say thatwit is wrong to drink liquors
is to take a stand unwarranted by Holy
Writ or by reason. The above remarks
are our own-not the speaker's.
The next speaker,
JAMES PACKER, ESQ,
took very high grounds on the subject.
He goes for total abstinence, and claims
that that is the teaching of the Bible.
And just here we remark that the friends
of temperance often do the cause more
harm than good by their extreme views;
they, in their zeal, make assertions that
they themselves believe true, no doubt,
but which they cannot possibly make
others believe. Mr. P.'s speech was a
right good one, but we want to see the
experiment tried of "killing a giant oak
by injecting an ounce of alcohol under
neath the bark," before we take much
stock in the statement.
There is. undoubtedly, far too much
drinking, and we wvish the Good Temn
plars and all othersimilar organizations
much success in their work.
After the speeches came the dinner,
which was abundant and well prepared.
The next convention of the County
Lodge will be held at Prosperity.

PROF. EVANS' CONCErT.-Temper
ance Hall was filled Thursday night
with a large and select audience. From
what was known of-Prof. Evans' qualifi
cations as a teacher of vocal music
something unusually good was expected,
and the expectation was realized abun
dantly. The Concert was a perfect
success. If anybody failed to enjoy it
he could have had no music in his soul.
There is no music equal to that of the
f human voice, and it is a rich treat to
bear a good singer. And the melody
of the voice touches a deeper chord
than any instrument can reach.
The entire performance was so uni
form in excellence that we cannot stop
to comment. The following was the
1. Chorus, "Gloria," 12th Mass; Mozart.
2. Quartette, "Come where my Love lies
I Dreamina." : : : : Foster.

7. Quartette,"SoftFloating on the Air,"toot.
Misses C. MIotte and C. Johnstone and Messrs.
McCrary and Jones.
S. Chorus, The God of Israel," Rossini.
1. Chorus, "Gipsy Life," Schumann.
2. Solo. Duett and Chorus, "Oh, How I Love
ry Mountain Home." : Webster.
Misses C. Motte and S. Johnstone and Messrs.
Dorsey and A. C. Jones.
3. Solo, (Vocal.) "Magnetic Waltz," Arditi.
Mrs. P. Robertson.
4. Solo and Quartette, (Male Voices.) "Little
Brown Church," : : Pitts.
Messrs. Dorsey, Evans, Simmons and E. C.
5. Solo, "0, Ain't you Awful," Russell.
Sol. D. Epstin.
6. Duett, "Robin Ruff," H. Russell.
Messrs. C. F. Dorsey and E. C. Jones.
7. Solo and Quartette, "Warbling Birds,"
Misses Lila Boozer and Julia Hunter and
Messrs. Dorsey and Gaillard.
.. "Phantom Chorus," Bellini.
"When the Tide Comes in," was
greeted with rapturous applause. After
repeated calls, Mr. Epstin returned to
the stage and convulsed the audience
with "Dublin on the Bay," a parody in
Irish brogue, of "Bingen on the Rhine,"
in which he showed himself a splendid
elocutionist. Again, after his second
solo, "0, Ain't you Awful," (comic) he
was encored and forced to return. He
sang another comic song, in which he
"took off" the London swell to perfec
tion. But this (lid not satisfy the au
dience. Just before the last piece was
to be sung, a written petition was sent
up that he repeat "When the Tide
Comes in," which he kindly consented
to do. But for imposing on his gene
rosity, the audience would have called
him out again and again, and we here
forewarn him to prepare for at least a
dozen appearances when he comes be
fore a Newberry audience again. Mr.
Epstin's talents are remarkably ver
satile, excelling alike in the. sentimental
and the comic, and he is besides one of
the best of mimics.
We haverarely heard so fine a Tenor
as Mr. Dorsey, of Columbia. His voice
is clear, strong and soft, and enuncia
tion so distinct, that not one word of
the song is lost to the audience, whether
the music be high or low, slow or fast.
Mrs. Waring possesses a rich voice,
of great depth and pathos and highly
cultivated. No feature of the evening
was more enjoyed than "The Spell."
Mrs. E. E. Jackson, of Columbia, a
splendid performer, presided at the
piano throughout the entire evening.
While complimenting our visitors
from Columbia we are not unmindful
of the merits of our own singers; but
they are so numerous anal all did so
well, that to mention names of particu
lar individuals would be an invidious
distinction. The churches and the comn
wunity, no less than the pupils them
selves, owe a debt of gratitude to Prof.
Evans for his work in Newberry. He
has labored faithfully and has succeeded,
as is clearly evidenced by the marked
improvement in our church choirs and
in congregational singing.
The community is greatly indebted
to Prof. Evans and his assistants and
pupils for the chaste and elegant enter
tainment of Thursday evening, and
would be glad to have another of a
similar character. Such entertainments
have a refining and elevating influence.

ig to Greenville from Columbia, where
they had gone to carry a batch,.of pris

the bell-rope and went to the rear end
of the coach to get off for his cap. Be
ing ina hm'rv, he didn't perceive that
the train was still moving quite rapid
ly, and in stepping off he fell, receiving
severe injuries. His left arm was
broken in twvo places and sprained, and
-his head and neck and other p)arts of
his hody were badly bruised. He was
taken off the train here; the Masons, of
-which body he is an honored member,

was sent for, and everything possible
was done for him.
He is improving and we hope will
soon be well.

NOTES FROM THE "WESTERN CORNER."
EDITORS NEWPrERRY HERALD: I had
an opportunity lately of seeing a dog
which was affected with that strange
malady about which so much has been
said, and, I think I might say with pro
priety, about which so little is certainly
known. The dog is alive at this writ
ing, and is the property of F. H. Dom
inick, of this vicinity. The first symp
toms noticed were unusual good humor,
friskiness and a disposition to play.
This stage of the disease was very soon
followed by listlessness and depression.
It was in this stage of the complaint
tbat I saw the dog; and-he seemed to
be suffering a great deal, and his ex
tremities were paralyzed. He appeared
to be cognizant of his surroundings,
and was not vicious. Will some one
who is versed in canine pathology be
good enough to tell us what is the mat
ter with the dogs?
The farmers of this community ac
knowledge two valuable acquisitions to
their ranks this year in the persons of
F. H. Dominick and J. A. Workman.
These gentlemen are both good farm
ers, and the appearance of their crops
at this time is the only evidence I shall
offer in proof of this fact. Indeed, they
seem to aspire to that poetic climax of
which we read, when things around
us, and all our waste places, shall "blos
som like the rose." These men have
applied a magical fertilizer this year,
the ingredients in the composition of
which they will be glad to enlighten
their neighbors in reference to, when
ever called on, as their motto is "to do
good and not evil."
Some.one once said,
"Work-for some goo.dl, be it ever so slowly
Labor-all labor is noble and holy;
And let thy GREAT deeds be thy prayers to
We hear a great deal said about be
ing over-worked, but tbe fact of it is
very few people hurt themselves; and
the aggregate of idle hours in the run
of the year will rebuke the man whose
children suffer for shoes and bread in
the winter. Idleness is the parent of
many of the ills we suffer. Industry
will bring its sure rewvard.
I would state as an item of news,
which is locally, but perhaps not gene
rally, known, that the bridge across
Little River, t1ear J. A. Workman's,
fell down with a crash not long since,
or at least that portion of it that span
ned the water. The people on both
sides of the stream are greatly incon
venienced in consequence. I trust the
commissioners, when we get a full
board, will take immediate steps to re
build this much needed bridge.
There has been a great improvement
in the appearaace of the crops since
July set in ; and as the weather is fa
vorable on the corn crop,a large amount
of which was planted late, I think the
yield will be great. But the farmers
must work on a while longer yet.
The man with the engine and thresh
er is among us, "going to and fro in the
land, and up and down in it," thresh
ing the wheat. From what I hear the
wheat crop is good; but in this commu
nity but little was sown.
All is quiet on this line, and the peo
pie, so far as heard from, will ratify the
action of the Convention on the day of
election. "So mote it be."
A FAIR SPECIMEN.-A correspondent
of the Charleston News and Courier,
who wvent up last week on the first fast
train from Charleston to Greenville,
speaks as folknva of a Newberry beauty:
"While spinning through Newberry
County, a young lady was discerned
upon the road running alongside the
track (that is, the road was running
alongside the track, not the young lady,)
who attracted universal admiration
from everybody on that side of the train,
and it was unanimously voted by the
male passengers that if she was a fair
specimen, (and she certainly was a fair
specimen ini one sense of the word,) of
the Newberry ladies, they would all
stop in Newberry as they came back.
Whoever she may be, she certainly pos
sessed one of the loveliest faces and
forms ever seen, (at least everybody
said so,) and she created quite an excite
ment on board. A News and Courier
was promptly dropped at her feet, as a
sort of votive offering."
The same correspondent in his letter
"At Columbia a gentleman narrowly
escaped serious if not fatal injury, by
falling between two cars while the train
was slowing moving off."
It appears to us that falling between
two cars in motion is not the best way
to escape serious injury.

ECLECTIC MAGAZINE.-In the frontis
piece to the August number, the Eclectic
pays an amiable compliment to its So uthern
patrons by reproducing in fine steeT engrav.
ing a portrait of Mr. Paul H. Hayne, the
most prominent of living Southern poets
and men-of-letters, and almost the only one
who has won general recognition from the
most cultured Northern critics and readers.
An appreciative biographical sketch accom
panies the portrait, in which appropriate
mention is made of the difficulties with
which Mr. Hayne has had to contend in pur
suing his chosen .career. The literary con
tents of the number are fully up to the usual
high standard of the magazine, and com
prise the following articles: "The Contest of
Church and State in Italy;" "Twenty Years
of African Travel;" "Genius and Vanity;"
"To Victor Hugo," a Sonnet by Alfred Ten
nyson; "Life and Times of Thomas Becket,"
by James Anthony Froude; "Pera," a Sko.tch
of Constantinople; "Is the Moon Dead?"
"George Frederick Cooke," the actor; "Ex

Matthew Arnold ; ''Ave Maria: a Breton
Legend," by Alfred Austin; "Amongst the
Cossacks of the Don;" "Teaching to Read,"
by James Spedding; and "Lines on a Beau

current literature, science, and art complete
an interesting number.

WASHINGTON.-One of the noblest charac
teristics of the Father of his country, was
that in his boyhood when he had committed
an offense which was likely to bring the in
iction of the severest punishment, he could
not tell a lie. I grieve to saV that there are
reputable grocers and merchants who will
assure you that any other starch is as good
as the Duryeas'. The awards of the great
Centennial at Philadelphia have settled that
qestion, and they have proclaimed that as
against the starches of the world, there is
none equal to that manufactuf'ed by the Dur
yeas. They took .the great medal at the
World's Exhibition, and they pronounced
their starch the best in the world. All re
spectable grocers keep it. Ask for Duryeas'
Improved Corn Starch, and Duryeas' Satin
Gloss Starch. Use it once and you will use

suspension of the menstrual flow. It is a
condition which should not be trifled with.
Immediate relief is the only safeguard against
constitutional ruin. In all cases of snppres
sion, suspension or other irregularity of the
"courses," Dr. J. Bradfield's Female Regula
tor is the only sure remedy. It acts by giv
ing tone to the nervous centres, improving
the blood and determining directly to the or
gans of menstruation. It is a legitimate pre
scription, and the most intelligent Doctors
use it. Prepared by J. Bradfield, Atlanta,
Ga., $1.50 per bottle, and sold by respectable
BOON TO SUFFERING FEMALES.
LAGRANtGE, GA., March 29, 1870
Bradfield & Co., A tlanta, Ga.--Dear Sirs:
I take pleasure in stating that I have used
for the last twenty years the medicine you are
putting up, known as Dr. Brad.field's FEMA LE
REGULATOR, and consider it the best combi
nation ever gotten together for the diseases
for which it is recommended. I have been
familiar with the preparation both as a prac
titioner of medicine and in domestic practice,
and can honestly say that I consider it a boon
to suffering females, and can but hope that
every lady in our land, who may be suffering
in any way peculiar to their sex, may be able
to procure a bottle, and their sufferings may
not only be relieved, but they may tte restored
Ito health and strength.
With my kindest regards,
I am, respectfully,
W. B. FERREL, M.D.

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
will arouse it to activity, an effect that is fol
lowed by the disappearance of the various
symptoms indicative of its derangement.
Ilostetter'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
the right shoulder, nausea, vertigo and sick
headache, to which bilious invalids are pecu
ciarly subject. As a remedy 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 thoroughly
relied upon. - 27-4t
