IT CONCERNS ALL.-The people in
the County must not, think they are less
interested in the proposed new railroad

higher price and to buy at a lower.
Everybody in the County is interested.

Thos. S. Moorman, Esq., and Mr. L. C.
Moore. A splendid picnic dinner was
enjoyed by those present. The next
regular session will be held at New
Dick Cheatham, an engineer on the
Air' Line road, made a narrow escape
the 13th instant. The boiler of his en
gine burst, but he was not hurt. The
conductor, Capt. Austin, was killed.
Dick is known all along the G. & C.
R. R., for he was an engineer on that
road many years.
Now Is THE TIME.-If Newberry
ever intends to have another railroad
now is the time to build it. Labor and
iron are cheaper now than they will
probably be again for many years. And
Newberry has a splendid trade, which
she can retain with a new road, but
which she will certainly lose without it.
HUNGRY AND TmRSTY.-The trains
over the G. & C. R. R. are mostly
crowded these latter days, and generally
the Nassengers are hungry and all the
time thirsty, there being no eating house
between Greenville and Columbia.
Passing down a few days ago we saw
a crowd of men, as the train stopped at
Alston, rush out crying for something
to oat. There was no tme allowed for
that, however, and the only comfort was
in gulping down as many glasses of
buttermilk as they could in the limited
time. "All aboard!" was yelled by the
conductor before some had swallowed
a glassful, some got none, and some
did not have time to settle for what they
drank. It was quite amusing to see
those famished men getting around.
The traveling public would be greatly
accommnodated if Col. Dodamead would
mnake a sufficient stay at that point to
enable them to take in rations, whether
going up or down.
STUDEirrS' REUNION.-The third meet
ing of the students, ex-students and
friends of Newberry College was held
in the Presbyterian Church at Ninety
Six Friday, the 16th. The meeting was
opened with prayer by Rev. Luther
Broadus, of the Baptist Church. The
principal stores in town were closed and
the meeting was largely attended.
The first address of the day was de
livered by Prof. G. D. Haltiwanger;
subject-"Advantages of Newberry Col
lege." J. B. O'Neall Holloway, of Po
maria, followed with an address on
"Education-its effects on individuals
and nations." The third and last ad
dress was delivered by C. W. Moore, of
Seneca City; subject-"Collegiate Edu
cation." The election of officers of the
Reunion Meeting then took place, with
tire following result: G. W. Haltiwan
ger, President; J. B.O0'Neall Holloway,
Secretary; C. .W. Moore, Treasurer.
The meeting is thought to have had
a good effect in the interest of the Col

3R. CHALMERS GETS POSSESSION OF THE
Mr. E. P. Chalmers received his com
mission Wednesday, the 15th inst., from
the Governor as Clerk of the Court.
Friday he made a demand on Mr. H. C.
Moses for the office. Mr. Moses declined
to give it up, taking the ground that
there was no vacancy in the office at the
time of the late election, and if there
was a vacancy the election was illegal.
Saturday about 2 o'clock, Mr. Chalmers
went to the office in company with Col.
T. J. Lipscomb, and again demanded
possession. The demand was again
refused. Mr. Moses was then given
the alternative either to turn over the
office or to be put out. He chose
the latter alternative. Col. Lipscomb
then took hold of one of the arms of Mr.
Moses and Mr. Chalmers the other,
and.the three walked out of the door
together. Mr. Chalmers is now in pos
THE STATUS OF TIIE PARTIES.
Mr. Moses was appointed and com
missioned as Clerk the 16th day of Feb
ruary, 1875, by his father, Montgomery
Moses, who was at that time Judge of
the 7th Circuit, to fill the vacancy occa
sioned by the resignation of Jesse C.
Mr. Chalmers was elected Clerk of
Court at the special election held the
26th of July last, to fill the vacancy oc
casioned by the failure of T. J. Clayton
(col'd) to qualify. Clayton was elected
at the general election last November.
A PEEP INTO THE PAST.
The first bale of new cotton sold at
'Newberry in 1858 was brought from
the plantation of Col. Johnson Hagood
(in Edgefield)-the present Comptroller
General. It brought 15 cents.
The first bale of cotton ever brought
to and sold in Newberry was sold by
W. D. Reagin to a Mr. Price for 11 1-2
cents,. early in 1851; weighed by Col.
W. B. D'Oyley. Weight, 367 pounds.
Number of bales 6f cotton bought and
shipped from this place in 1858, between
Sept. 1 and Oct, 9, 4,548-not a single
bale shipped .by a planter.
The population of Newberry in 1858
was 1,426; it is now about double that

THE USURY LAW.-In 1858 the fol
lowing gentlemen were candidates for
the Legislature in this County: L. J.
Jones. J. H. Williams, C. H. Suber,
Dr. T. B. Rutherford, J. Hair and Dr.
W. B. McKellar. At a public meeting
held at St. Mathew's Academy, near
Pomaria, August 6th, each candidate
was required to answer the question,
"Are you in favor of a repeal of the
usury laws?" Each one answered no.
Thiis is not argument, but history.
HousE BURNED.-The dwelling house
of Mr. D. R. Phifer was burned last
night (Monday). A lady cousin of
Mrs. Phifer's first discovered the fire
about 2 o'clock. She aroused the family
and the alarm was given; but before
assistance could arrive the fire had
made such head'vay that it could not be
checked. The Hook and Ladder Com
pany and others present rendered val
uable aid in saving the greater part of
The house is well known as the
"Drayton Nance House," and is the
same that was occupied by Maj. Ste wart
while in command of the garrison here.
It was one of the largest and finest in
town, though somewhat old-fashioned
in style. It was insured in the Liverpool,
London and Globe for $5,000. The
cause of the firo is thought to have been
a defective stove flue. It caught in the
second or third story. The fire is sup
posed to have been smouldering for
several hours before breaking out into
NOTES FROM THE "WESTERN CORNER".
EDITORS OF THE HERALD: A short
time ago an old~negro woman by the
name of Katie Peterson died at J.
Hair's plantation, in this vicinity, who,
according to the best information that
can be obtained, was, at the time of
her death, about one hundred years old.
She was once the property of Win. Pe
terson, a quiet and useful citizen of this
community, who died about ten years
ago. Katie was taken care of, after
the -death of her old master, by her
grandson. The soliloquy which Shaks
peare makes a distinguished English
noble woman utter in regard to herself
might have been with propriety, for
the last ten years of her life, applied to
Katie Peterson: "Dedd life, blind
sight, grave's due by life usurped."
Such an instance of longevity is not
often witnessed among us, and for that
reason I mention this. As a rule, "few
and evil are the days of the years of
olir lives," and but rarely any of us "at
tain unto the years of our fathers in the
days of their pilgrimage."
Recently refreshing showers have
visited this neighborhood-more co
pious rains in the direction of Laurens.
The fields have been revived by the
showers that have fallen, and we now
have Tenewed promise of an abundant
yield. As a general thing the~crops
have been "laid by" in good condition.
free of weeds and grass. I am sorry
to be forced to state that this cannot be
said of all the farms. In some places
I notice that the carrot has been left in
hurtful proximity to the stalk of corn,
there to "bulldoze" each other till they
both die with old age.
There is a sort of argument offered
in justification of this habit of laying
by crops-that the weeds keep the land
cool and moist, prevent the corn firing,
&c.; but it is plain that such doctrine
is not only absurd but in violation of
agricultaral common sense.
The usual monotony of the "Corner"
was relieved on the 1st inst. by a bar
becue served at J. B. Chappell's-the
first thing of the kind that has been in
this vicinity for ten years, and of course
it was enjoyed by all, gotten up as it
was in quietness, conducted in order
with only one exception, and ended
with a dance.
There are five cases of remittent fe
ver at one h]ouse in the lower edge of
Laurens, of quite a malignant type.
These cases of fever, it is thought, wvere
caused by the habit of pouring dirty
soap)suds among the weeds and grass
near the house. Whether this practice
of pouring the dirty water about the
house was the cause of these cases of
fever or not, is a question I will not
discuss; but I think any one wvill admit
that an eilluvium would likely be gene
rated that no thoughtful person would
willingly inhale. With the above ex

Nit. Bethel Camp-Meeting.
EWBERRY, S. C., August 17th, 1877.
MESSRS. EDITORS : I take the liberty of
giving you a short account of my trip to
Mt. Bethel Camp-Meeting (as you know I am
fond of going to Camp-Meetings). In coin
pany with our good brother, Rev. T. G.
Herbert, we left our quiet little town on
the evening of the 9th inst. We were
joined two miles out by James Y. Culbreath,
Esq., and wife, on their way to Glenn
Springs. We all spent the night at our
friend W. 0. Goree's, at Kinard's T. 0.,
and had a very pleasant meeting and l.art
ing.- On our way the next day we saw the
finest cotton-belonging to Mr. James
Blalock-that I have seen this year. He
has two hundred acres planted, and it is
said will make two hundred bales. At
Clinton we parted with Mr. and Mrs. C.;
they going to Glenn's and we to Mt. Beth
el. We were pleased to find Mr. J. S.
Bowers with some fifty hands actively en
gaged, about a mile beyond Clinton, clean
ing off the bed and laying down the iron of
the Laurens R. R. Hope they will reach
Laurens in time for the transportation of
the present crop. Sorry to find things
looking so dull about Laurens. Bridges
and depot in quite a dilapidated condition
I noticed the Associate Reformed and the
Episcopal Churches badly in need of repairs.
This ought not to be. We spent a very
pleasant three hourg. with our good friend
Capt. Wash Shell, and enjoyed a sumptu
ous dinner-which his good lady knows
just how to have fixed up. Arriving at the
Camp ground about sunset we were much
pleased to find some twenty tents occupied,
and quite a spirit of imprpvement in them
was to be seen ; while some had been re
covered and fixed up, others had built new
ones. This is, I doubt not, one among
the oldest Camp grounds in the State.
Twenty-three years ago it was established,
and with the exception of two years during
the war there has never been an omission.
It has not been our privilege for years to
attend such a meeting. Though our good
brother Rev. M. Brown, P. E , was present,
his health would not permit him to take
charge of the meeting, and Rev. J. B.
Traywick, P. C., attended to this duty to
the entire success of the meeting. There
were ten preachers in attendance. Fifty
conversions and twenty accessions to the

Messrs. Editors, if you have never been
to Mt. Bethel you should go. Such a

this or any other country. It is said to

left on the evening of the 14th for home.
Spent the night with our good friend and
brother Rev. A. W. Moore. Arriving home
the next day, were pleased to find all well
and glad to see us.

FOE THE HERALD.
GI,ENN~ SPRINGS, Aug. 16, '7'.
EDIToRs HERALD :--We left our pleasant
town of Ne wberry two weeks ago in search
of a health-giving drink. This we found in
the much-vaunted water of Glenn's. Having
drunk freely and copiously of this water, I
can unite in a grand chorus with those who
have reaped similar benefits from the use of
this rejuvenating fountain. I am thus ac
costed at almost every step : "Mrs.,
how much you have improved !" This sounds
falls like a marriage bell dpon our ears,
grown accustomed . to the doleful sound,
"How badly you look !" The hosts are
courteous and kind, and evidence by their
interest in you, that you will be comfortable
while sojouLning with them. The guests
are agreeable and pleasant, but not what
the beau monde would call "tons." We
know all the guests, and whenever a new
one arrives we are anxious to take each of
their hands and wish them to improve as
much, if possible more, than we have.
Last Tuesday evening our modest quietude
and humility was disturbed by a Penny
Reading. Two of our Newberrians partici
pated in the entertainment and acted well
the parts assumed by them. The selections
from Mrs. Browning, Tennyson and others
were beautifully read. Mr. Jas. Y. Culbreath
read an original parody on "You'd scarce
expect one of my age," &c. Miss A. J. read
from Mrs. Browning "Man's Requirements"
and "Sleeping and Watching." The selec
tions were fine, humorous, pathetic and
grand. Others read and added to the enjoy
ment of the occasion, and music was afforded
by one of our favorite young ladies, Miss
Ella S. We expect to have a similar enter
tainment next week. Being held weekly,
they are a source of much pleasure and
In concluding, we would say to all who
feel badly, come to Glenn's and test its pro
perties. We are sure you will improve.
Would you have Rosy Cheeks?
EIFERIENCE OP A YOUNG WOMAN .-A
country girl, young, pretty and happy, her
step was elastic and the roses of health
bloomed upon her cheek. One April morn
she was .overtak-en by a "spring shower,"
and caught a cold.
It was her "particular time," and suppres
sion was the result. At the next "period"
nature refused to act. She became sallow,
swollen and suffered intensely with pain in
the back and "lower stomach," palpitations,
difficnlty of breathing, indigestion and head
ache. Doctors failed to palliate her distressed
condition, and she longed for death as tbe
only hope of relief. At the instance of a
friend, who herself experienced its benefits,
she was induced to try Dr. J. Bradfield's Fe
male Regulator. One bottle cured her. She
was again the happy girl she was that April
morning before the shower- The Female
Regulator is prepared by Dr. J. Bradfield,
Atlanta, Ga., at $1.50 per bottle and kept by
all respectable drug men throughout the land.
A MOST EXCELLENT REMEDY.
ATLANTA, GA., March 12, 1870.
I have examined the recipe of Bradfield's
Female Regulator, and from my knowledge
of its ingredients, believe it a most excellent
medicine, and wvell suited to that class of dIis
ases designated. I have no hesitation in ad
vising its use, and confidently recommend it
to the public, JOEL BiRANLAM, M.D..

DIED, at Helena, on the morning of the
15th inst., after a painful and protracted ill
ness of several months, JAMES M. DAVIS, in
the 58th year of his age.
Mr. Davis removed from Fairfield to New
berry twenty-seven years ago, since which
time he had been a faithful and efficient em
ployee of the G. & C. R. R., at the Helena
He leaves a widow and several children to
miss the affectionate care of a devoted hus
band and father.
The deceased was a consistent member of
the Baptist Church, and gave assurance that
he died in peace, and that he is at rest in the
Mansions of the Blest. A FRIEND.
A Result of Obstructed Diges
Among the hurtful consequences of obstruct
ed digestion, is the impoverishment of the
blood, and since a deteriative condition of the
vital fluid notonly produces dangerous organ
ic weakness, but, according to the best medi
cal authorities, sometimes causes asphyxia, it
is apparent that to improve the quality of the
blood by promoting digestion and assimila
tion, is a wise precaution. Hostetter's Stom
ach, Bitters is precisely the remedy for this
purpose, since it stimulates the gastric juices,
conquers those bilious and evacuative irreg
ularities which interfere with the digestive
processes, promotes assimilation of the food
by the blood, and purifies as wellias enriches
it. The signs of improvement in health in
consequence of using the Bitters are speedily
apparent in an accession of vigor, a gain in
bodily substance, and a regular and active
performance of every physical function.
