Brown is just what the people are on
the lookout for at this season. He did
not buy the first hag of new cotton, but
he is the first to advertise a new stock
of goods. which he will sell at low
prices. He means business.
Christopher Haynes worth, fashionable

other at Mt. Pleasant, have combined

picnic at the last mentioned place.
That it will be a nice affair there is no
doubt. An indefatigable and exceed
ingly popular teacher of vocal music is
"Cousin" Mattie, and we thank her for
an invitation to attend.
SALE OF SEED COTrON.-In His
Honor's charge to the Grand Jury on.
Monday, the nefarious traffic in seed
cotton between sunset and sunrise
was alluded to, and their attention
called to the fact that a law was pass
ed during the last Legislature which
makes the purchaser and seller equally
liable. It is well at this gason to be
reminded of a fact of so much impor
tance, and which is calculated to pro
tect the farmer from loss.
THANKS.-Capt. John Alexander, of
the Congaree Iron Works, Columbia,

Tox KErrr AS A BIGAMIsT.-A bright
and shining light has come incontinent
ly to grief. Tom Keitt, colored Member
of the House .of Representatives and
Keeper of the Poor House in this
County, was arrested Friday and car
ried before Trial Justice Carlisle on a
charge of Bigamy. The affidavit upon
which the arrest was ordered was made
by W. P. Harris, and charges that in
1870 or '71 Keitt was married to a wo
man named Alice Greenwood, having
a wife living at the time. The Trial
Justice bound Tom over for t.tial at the
Sessions Court, fixing the bail at $500.
He spent Friday night in jail, but Sat
arday morning Col. E. S. Keitt, his
former master, became bail for him,
and he was released.
ANOTHER MAD DOG.-A mad do
made its appearance at Mr. Thoma
Adams' place, near Asbford's Ferry, on
Tuesday last. After biting two or more
dogs in that neighborhood it made its
way on down to J. A, Caldwell's-in
the Black Jack settlement-biting all
other dogs in its way. Mr. C. followed
it to Beth Eden, and there learned it
had bitten one of Mr. Geo. A. Sligh's
dogs, and escaping reached Ivy Suber's
place, where fortunately it was killed
on Thursday. How many dogs were
inocculated by its poisonous fangs in
the three days intervening between its
appearance and killing it is fearful to
contemplate, and we cannot too strong
ly urge the necessity of killing every
dog either known or suspected of being
itten. The numerous deaths from
hydrophobia are sufficient warning.
TO OUR FRIENDS AND THlE. PUB:

Pool's entire stock of Dry Goods and

1SALE-DAY-RAIL ROAD MEET
Newberry was crowded Monday.
The only sales were of some personal
property-under execution. The occa
sions that called so many people together
were the mass meeting in the interest
of a new railroad,. and the opening of
the Court of Sessions. The railroad
meeting was called at 12 o'clock, and
the Court House was filled with citizens
from every portion of the County, who
manifested a deep interest in the subject.
George Johnstone, Esq., was chosen
Chairman, and Thos. S. Moorman, Esq.,
Secretary. The Chairman explained
the object of the meeting. Speeches
were made by Messrs. E. S. Keitt, J.
F. J. Caldwell, G. G. DeWalt, Y. J.
Pope and others. On motion of Col.
Keitt the following resolution was
Resolved, That a committee of five
persons be appointed by the Chairman
of this meeting, to ascertain the most
economical and practicable means of
establishing a new route, or of effecting
a connection with an already establish
ed line of railroad, (or some line that
may be established in a reasonable
length of time) for the relief and im
provement of this County, and that said
Committee report to a meeting of the
citizens of the County to be held on
Saleday in October. The following
committee was appointed: E. S. Keitt,
J. N. Martin, R. C. Carlisle, J. F. J.
Caldwell, Jas. N. Lipscomb.
The meeting then adjourned to the
first Monday in October, and delegations
from Laurens, Chester, Augusta, Spar
tanburg and Union were, by resolution,
cordially invited to attend.
Judge Mackey arrived on the up-train,
and opened court at 4 P. M. The cleanly
appearance of the court room, the in
telhgent faces of the jurors and the
character of the spectators in attendance
were all in marked contrast to anything
that Newberry has witnessed before for
many years. Justice has become re
spectable again, and the people rejoice
that a drunken solicitor and ignorant
and packed juries no longer pollute her
temples. In remarking on this contrast,
we wish it understood that no reflections
are cast on the distinguished Judge of
this circuit, the Honorable L. C. Nor
throp. For three successive terms he
has come to Newberry, eager to clear
the dockets and the jail, and each time
he has been unable to proceed one step,
because of "no legal jury."
We were anxious to get the Judge's
charge to the Grand Jury, but were un
able to do so, as it was delivered ex
tempore, and our short-hand reporter has
not returned from the springs. Suffice
it to say that His Honor indicated very
explicitly and in language plain and
practical the duties that devolve upon
the Grand Jury. These duties are so
oft repeated that it is unnecessary to
state them here.
The Grand Jury returned the follow
ing true bills: State vs. Geo. D. Brown
-murder; State vs. Peter Williams,
Jas. Brown, .Brooks A brams, Albert
Williams-Grand Larceny; State vs.
Geo. Werts, alias Geo. P. Werts-inur
der; State vs. Burrell Davenport, alias
Burrel Chalmers, Grand Larceny; State
vs. Morris Renwick, Newton Renwick
and Horace Renwick-Grand Larceny;
State vs. Belton Denbo and Stephen
Denbo-Gi and Larceny. Court ad
journed to Tuesday, 10 A. M.

dall Wilson, murder; Archy Johnson,
assault with intent to kill; Isaac Boston,
Grand Larceny ; Joe Sheppard, Grand
Larceny. J. N. Fowles is foreman of
the Grand Jury.

WILLI MsTOS, S. C., August 30, '77.
There is a divinity which shapes our ends
rough, and one is not compelled to live till
one dies to find it out. We found the
'rough end' on Monday last in the abrupt
termination of our pleasant sojournet Glenn
Springs, and in parting with the "happy
family" of charming matrons, sweet maidens
and entertaining gentlemen there asembled.
The simple parting might have been borne
with equanimity, but we had conjured the
idea that there would have been a scene
with any quantity of tears ; like the baseless
fabric of a dream, however, it collapsed.
The ladies did not turn out worth a cent
like the guests invited to the marriage feast
they all made excuse, except a couple of
little dears who stood at the front and
faced the music. There was only, there
fore, a limited and gentle good-bye as
in a cloud of dust our crazy buggy rolled
off for the twelve mile jaunt to Spartanburg
With a trunk in front-the place usually
occupied by legs-and a young fifteenth
amendment by our side, the bitter cud was
chewed into infinitessimal particles until a
change came over the spirit of the dream
by a right wheel, double quick of the horse,
which became frightened at a train of cars.
Snugly jammed in a fence corner the happy
discovery was made that "nobody was hurt"
except the buggy, which is now undergoing
an extensive 'keying up' as rai.road men
would call it. The divinity which shapes
things managed very well in this case, and
we are thankful. Spartanburg reached, just
as twilight dews were falling, mine host of
the Hampton House calmed our perturbed
feelings in his usual felicitous style by an
internal application, which we trust the
reader will not imagine was of a liquid na
Spartanburg is a growing city, and
one of the most prominent features is the
great number of hogs, which have the privi
lege of the streets; the number is legion,
but they are beauties, and will turn out so
much lard this fall that the public heart will
be made glad. She is digging an immense
well, prepartory to getting a fire engine
good. She is also laying granite stepping
stones at all the street crossings-good
again. She is going to connect by another
railroad to Augusta-good another time.
She has two first class hotels open-Hamp
ton House by S. B. Calcuitt and Piedmont
by Charlie Chase, together with the Pal
metto about to be opened by Mr. Prue Ben
son. A delightful ride up to the terminus
of the Spartanburg and Asheville R. R.,
which now runs a distance of 27 miles, and
within a stone's throw of Tryon Mountain,
was well wortch getting up at four o'clock
for. All the clouds and disappointments of
the preceding day were dissipated as we
rolled over a charming stretch of country,
whose grassy slopes and extensive fields of
corn and cotton sparkled with the dew in
the freshness of that early morning. Over
hill and dale the iron horse sped, the whis
tle awaking echoes among the distant hills;
over trestles on~e hundred feet high, through
immense cuts, away, away she flew till Tryon
City, now in its infancy, was reached all too
soon. Across a frightful chasm yet to be
bridged loomed the grand old mountains
over yonder Tryon ; nestled in and hid from
sight McAboy's famous hostelry, from which
one could almost in fancy inhale the savory
breakfast a hungry host waited for. The
stage with its spanking team; the crowd,
some just arrived and others ready to leave,
all made up a charming picture. Here we met
Dr. Marcellus Renwick on the return trip,
and chock-full of inspiration gathered from
a mountain trip. But we return, and with
the appetite of two men. Along the route
was noticed in two fields one hundred and
seventy-five acres of corn of magnificent
characterbelon3giOg on the one side to Mr.
Cantrell and the other to Mr. Landrum.
Everywhee the corn was splendid-cotton
mnferior. Thanks to Judge Northrop, who
kindly placed his buggy and pony at our
disposal in the afternoon, a profitable day
was ended by another delightful ride, which
did not end til the stars were rea .y to
At 10j P. M., we took the Air Line for
Greenville, which was reached by 1 o'clock,
when a ri,de in the street cars brought us to
Col. Speights' famous hotel the Greenville,
where was found an old friend-Wooten
whose face has lost neither its old smile nor
olor. A cat nap-rap at the door at 4
'clock, and at 5 off and away for William
ston, with Bishop Wightman and family on
board and Mrs. Dr. Peltam-each and all
bound for the same place. At the depot
shake of the hand of Tho's. Wicker, Rev.
Lader and others, followed by an abduc
tion by mine host Deal, and a superb break
fast. Ah. Martin Harris is found running
over with quaint humor superinduced by
chicken and ,beef steak. Williamston is a
delicious place, and no wonder there are so
many Newberrians located here. We have
not seen "Broadbrim," the popular HERALLD
correspondent in any of our travels, but the
reader will be pleased to learn that we have
seen "Maggie,"' whose contributions have
for so long a period given a charm to our
columns. We know now who "Maggie"
is and feel a perfect satisfaction-and trust
that the reader does also.
Old Hez. McGee-everybody along the
line of the G. & C. R. R., knows him-hap
pened to be on one of his periodical tramps
and was met at the Spring. Those who
have heard him will appreciate the pleas
ure afforded us on hearing him spell "Abom
inable big Bumble Bee with his tail cut
right short smack smooth great square toed
of"-those who have not are informed that
he is half-witted but singularly possessed of
wnderful memory-forgets nothing he
ever sees or hears, and tramps barefooted
nddctless from town to town rehearsing
hi varied acquirements, all of which he
gives for a nickel. It is thought he has a
bushel o money-as he hoards it with
- . mL:. A .,~ ,~V nlA 14a~
kind in-the country, and its esteemed and
honored principal stands in the front rank
as an educator, and it is gratifying to say
that the young ladies committed to his
charge find in him all those qualities of
head and heart calculated to endear him to
them in a most wonderful degree. The
Rev. 0. A. Darby is domiciled in the Col
lege and assists materially in the studies;
he is stationed at Williamstorn and is doing
a good ministerial work. Mr. T. V. Wicker,
formerly of Pomaria, is here merchandising,
and in the shadows of the evening, when
business cares are thrown aside, he with his
family recall past reminiscences and fondly
think of old Newberry County. It will not
surprise us if they come back to the old
place once more.
There are quite a number of visitors here
in quest of health and pleasure, and we
know of no more delightful place. The
Mineral Spring is charmingly situated in a
beautiful grove, and one does not grow
tired in going to it, nor get scorched by
the sun, for there are no hills to climb and
a refreshing shade is all around ; and then
mine hast Deal deals such a bountiful sup
ply of creature comforts that no matter
how great the appetite or how fastidious
the taste, there is no room for a shadow of
complaint. The faces at his table are pleas
ant to look at-round and rosy. And now,
reader, having given you a faithful account
of the round trip from Newberry via Alstor
and Spartanburg road, back by the G. & '.
line, we close and prepare to return home
and resume the harness once more.
FOR THE HERALD.
"Leaves have their time to fall,
And flowers to wither at the North wind's
And stars to set-but all,
Thou hast all seasons for thine own, 0
In the holy calm of a lovely Sabbath
morning, surrounded by fond relatives and
friends, our venerable and beloved pastor,
Rev. J. L. Kennedy, went home to his re
ward, in the 76th year of his age, bearing
in death, as he had ever done in life, elo
quent testimony for the cause of Christ,
whose faithful minister he was, and had
been for more than forty years. As an
intimate friend of the family I have mingled
with him and his in all the social relations
of life; have sat down at his hospitable
board and gathered round his happy fire
side, finding him everywhere and under all
circumstances characterized by that genial
courtesy, faultless grace, and dignity of the
high-bred gentleman and perfect Christian.
Death for him had no terrors; all was light,
joy, love and peace. As we gathered 'round,
watching with love's sacred vigilance the
fast-ebbing sands of life, his failing voice
broke the solemn stillness with the great
Apostle, "'Tis far better to depart and be
with Christ." Then weaker grew the voice,
but more triuinphant the faith, as he softly
repeated two lines of that immaculate
"I would not live alway,
I ask not to stay."
And laying down his earthly crown at the
Saviour's feet, he was crowned anew with
the star-gemmed diadem of eternity. As I
stood alone in the gathering shadows of
twilight, and looked for the last time on
the sainted face with its lingering smile,
the noble head with its glorious crown of
snow-white hair, I felt how fully, how en
tirely, he had passed away from us, and
how impassable was the gulf which separated
"And I yearned for the touch of his van
And the sound of his voice that was
May God in His great mercy and pitIing
love comfort the stricken hearts of the
mourning family. Comfort with great ten
derness those of them who were not pet.
mitted to linger at the sainted death-bed ;
pour upon their bleeding hearts the "balm
of Gilead which is for the healing of Thy
people." Comfort with equal love and
tenderness those whose sad but precious
privilege it was to hold the dear hand as
the angel* feet went down the valley of
shadows into the vast beyond. Comfort
us,-the bereaved flock of a beloved shep
herd;-who, while bowing in deep humility
'neath the afflicting rod, cry out in the bit
terness of grief, Our glory has departed.
Why should we weep ? he dwells above,
In that fair paradise of love.
Truly his work on earth is done,
But Heaven, the Christian's goal, is won.
Williamston, S. C., 20th Aug., 1877.
ELEGANT HAIR is woman's crowning
beauty. When it fades, she fades as
well. While it is kept bright, her per
sonal attractions are still maintained.
By preserving the hair fresh and vig
orous a youthful appearance is contin
ued through many years. Those who
grieve over their fading hair turning
gray too early should know that Ayer's
Hair Vigor prevents it, and restores
gryor faded hair to its natural color.
It is a clear and healthful preparation,
containing neither oil, dye, nor any
thing deleterious, and imparts to the
scalp what is most needed-a sense of
pleasant and delightful freedom from
scui or dandruff.-New Berne (N. C.)
ECONOMY IS WEALTH,
Poor Richard says. If this be true, then It
is wise in every family to use Duryeas's Satin
Gloss Starch in preference to any other, be
cause it is the most economical ever manu
factured in the world. It is the most econom
ical because it is the best; it is the cheapest
because it is the best. It is purer, whiter,
and stronger than any other starch. it has
reeived the highest award over all competi
tors in the four quarters of the globe. Don't
e dcceived by your grocer. Ask for Duryeas'
Improved Corn Starch for food, and Duryeas'
Satin Gloss Starch for laundry purposes, and*
take no other.

Relief Without a Doctor.
Though we would by no means be under
stood as deprecating, but rather as recom
mending, professional - aid in disease, there
are multitudes of instances when it is neither
necessary nor easy to obtain. A family pro
vided with a comprehensive household spe
cific, like Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, is pos
sessed of a medicinal resource adequate to
most emergencies in which medical advice
would be otherwise needful. That sterling
tonic and corrective invariably remedies, and
is authoritatively recommended for debility,
indigestion, liver disorder, an irregular habit
of body, urinary and uterine troubles, incipi
ent rheumatism and gout, and many other
ailments of frequent occurrence. It eradi
cates and prevents intermittent and remit
tent fevers, relieves mental despondency,
checks premature decay, and invigorates the
nervous and muscular tissues. Sleep, diges
tion and appetite are promoted by it, and it
is extremely useful in overcoming the effects
of exhaustion and exposure. 36-4t.

WoMAN's RIGHTs.-One who has long
studied this absorbing subject now presents
to the women of our country the result of his
investigations. He is happy to say that he has
at last discovered "Woman's Best Friend."
It is adapted especially to those cases where
the womb is disordered, and will cure any ir
regularity of the "menses." Dr. J. Bradfield's
Female Regulator acts like a charm in
"whites," or in a sudden check of the
"monthly covrses," from cold, trouble of
mind or like causes, by restoring the dis
charge in every instance. So also in chronic
cases its action is prompt and decisive, and
saves the constitution from countless evils and
premature decay. This valuable preparation
is for sale at $1 50 per bottle by all respectable
Druggists in the land. Prepared and sold by
Dr. J. Bradfield, Atlanta, Ga. A thousand
women testify to its merits.

WITHERSPOON was given, as a daughter, to
J. Clarke Wardlaw and Elizabeth T. Moor
man, who were married on the 20th day of
May, 1875. The sweet mother of the baby
died on the 27th day of June, 1877. The
baby, "Masie" as they called her, lived to be
a little joy; but then she died on the 29th
day of August, 1877, very cheerfully, to join
her mother, and seemed to say as she died:
Mama says you all must come.
