ANOTHER DEATH FRO3I HYDROPHO
BIA.-A young man 14 years of age,
son of Mr. Isaac Phinney, near Clinton,
Laurens County, died last Friday morn
ing of Hydrophobia, caused by the bite
of a rabid dog sixty days before.
In making presents to children have
an eye to their best good; if the.y haye
a cough, sore throat or pain in the
chest, present them a bottle of Shriner's
Balsamic Cough Syrup-it will prolong
their lives-we cannot say this of all
presents made to children.
THE VERY THING.-There is a mule
in the Beth Eden settlement wvhich kicks
out from behind fourteen times without
stopping. As it now can be bought
cheap, we advise thc town council to
secure it for the suppression of riots.
All that is necessary is to back it up into
a crowd, and it will do the work of a
dozen special constables.
WON'T Do.-A beet which weighed
three pounds when taken from the
ground, but much shriveled and dried
when brought to this office, was accom
panied with the question, "Can Jim
Meredith of Helena beat this?" Yes,
muchly! Jim has them as big as a.
half peck and weighing more pounds
than we can find figures for.
Cow KILLED.-Mr. J. C. Wilson, Jr.,
living near Cannon's Creek meeting
house, reports the killing of a very fine~
heifer a few nights since. It was found
dead, and on skinning it, Mr. W. found
it had been killed by blows from a club.
The perpetrator of the deed was .scared
off before he could make way wvith the
meat. He is suspected, and if proof
can be obtained wvill be prosecuted.

INFALLIBLE CURE FOR HyDROPIno
BIA.-Take immediately warm vinegar
or tepid water, wash the wound clean
therewith and then dry it, then pour
upon it a few drops of Hydroloric Acid,
because mineral acids destroy the poi
son of the saliva, by which means the
latter is neutralized.
WILLIAMSTON FEMALE COLLEGE.
Attention is called to the advertised cir
cular in another column by President
Lander. It needs no explanatory no
tice from us-every feature being clear
ly and distinctly stated. It is scarcely
necessary to add that this Institution
has advantages second to no other Col
lege in the South. Send for a catalogue.
CURE FOR HOG CHOLERA.-For fifty
hogs take a pail full of concentrated lye
soap, one pound of coperas, add water,
and boil it. Cool with slop, dish-water,
or any greasy water. Stir in enough
soda while warm to make it foam, and
give to the bogs while foaming. Give
once a day for two days; miss two days
and then then give for two again. This
is guaranteed to be a sure cure.
The Greenville Hotel Register is the
title of a very spicy little parer pub
lished in the Greenville Hotel office by
Charlie Hall & Walter Lee Speights,
for the benefit of the above named pop
ular hash institution and its numerous
appreciative patrons. lhdtun in Parvo
is the style adopted by the Register, and
a glance at its well filled columns show
that it is adhered to. Among the hotel
items it gives the bill of fare of last
Sunday's dinner, and the elegant varie
ty specified shows that Speights knows
what he is about.
YEAR'S SHIPMENT OF COTTON.-Mr.
J. A. Kinard, the efficient shipping
clerk, furnishes the statement that the
number of bales cotton loaded and
shipped by him from this depot from
Sept. 1st. 1876, to Sept. 1st, 1877, is
19,395. The apparent falling off in the
number as compared with 21,855 bales
as last year's report is accounted for by
reason that Mr. K. has only reported
the number loaded by himself and not
that brought by the Laurens R. R. The
year previous that received by way of
Laurens was reloaded at this point.
OUR PROSPECTS.-The citizens of
Newberry have not since the war felt
the hope which now animates them.
Economy among the farmers, reform
in public matlers and a healthier con
dition in mercantile affairs, have given
an inspiration which is pleasant to see.
The location of the Newberry College,
the new and hardsome stores lately
erected-and which will all soon be
filled with elegant goods-a new order
of things in Court, together with the
prospect of another railroad, &c., make
the prospect bright indeed. Let the
people put their shoulders to the wheel
with energy, and the dark days of the
past will soon be forgotten.
ROSEMONT.-It would be very grati
fying to the lot holders in Rosemont if
the tall rank weeds and grass were cut
down. The walks as well as vacant
lots are overgrown and they now pre
sent an ugly and extremely pamnful ap
pearance. We make no reflections on
the Trustees of the Cemetery, being
well aware of the difficulties they have
labored under, but draw attention to it
in hope that lot owners and others in
terested may contribute toward the ac
complishment of so laudable an end.
Half a dozen hands with scythe blades
could easily cut down every weed and
tuft of grass in one day, and one day
day's labor more in removing the rub
bish would be all the time and labor
necessary. The HERALD proposes to
contribute $1 to this end-who next?
PER~SONAL.-Prof. A. P. Pifer re
turned from Glenn Springs on Wednes
day, where he has been enjoying a brief
period of rest.
The great cotton buyer, Capt. Dick,
auired by last steamer, and farmers
are happy. Several persons knew he
was here before seeing him-they heard
his happy voice.
Messrs. Bowman and Walter, of
Charleston, have also returned for the
Postmaster Boone returned on Thurs
day last from Washington. His return
was by the Western N. C. R. R., taking
in Hickory, Morganton, Old Fort, Ashe
ville, and by stage to Asheville & S.
Mr. R, H. Wright returned from Newv
York on Monday last. He had a pleas
ant time making selection of goods.
THE CLERK'S OFFICE.-The Grand
Jury, Thursday morning, made the fol
lowing presentment in regard to the
''The Grand Jury find upon exami

on record that "the man who hath no

that Newberry town has spent almost
enough money mn purchasmng instru
ments for Brass Bands and for lessons
in instrumental and vocal music to
grade the proposed Road from the
Court House to Ashford's Ferry; to
build a splendid Market house; to make
Rosemont Cemetery the beautiful city
of the dead that it should be; to lay out
and decorate a p)ublic Park; and build
a fire well and buy a first-class Fire
Engine, etc., we might be inclined to
think that the town is the hatching
place of treason, &c. But it cannot be,
the people love music and have paid
their money for it--foolishly, however;
it may be, too, that they have it in their
sous, but unfortunately they cannot
get it out. We think Newberry was
about the first county after the - war to
get up a band, and, sad to say, the first
to give it up. Other counties started
bands and still have them, and make
music of good character. Alas, that it
is o, but Nevherry can't raise a toot
COURT OF SESSIONS.--Our report of
the court proceedings last week closed
Tuesday morning, the 4th. Since that
time the interest in the proceedings
has not diminished one whit. The court
room has been packed every day, and
the crowd of whites and blacks (mostly
whites) have stood hour after hour, ta
king a deep interest in all that was go
ing on. Good order has marked the
proceedings so far on the part of all
present. When one enters the court
room he feels that this is indeed a Court,
and not the miserable travesty of justice
to which he has been accustomed for
nine years past. Business has been
dispatched with proper deliberation,

peculiar power in pushing forward pub

proptly, and his pocket-book kept

Closing Exercises of Miss Iattie
Boyd's Mt. Pleasant Sing
We are indebted to Mr. J. F. Hobbs, of
Hope Station, for a graphic description of
this interesting festival, and regret that
our limited space already crowded, forbids
its publication entire. Omitting the early
morning ride to and arrival at the scene
his raptured vision on entering the beauti
fully decorated church edifice, profuse with
trailing vine and floral gifts-the exquisite
complimentary bouquets to the Queen of
song-the loved mistress of the occasion,
etc., we take up the narrative where "the
crowd by this time had fast collected,
when the classes (singing classes) wer". ar
ranged, the hour of opening was announced.
When we say singing classes, we mean that
Miss B. has two classes, one at Maybinton
consisting of 35 members, and the other at
this place (Mt. Pleasant), numbering 50,
making a' grand total aggregate of 85 music
pupils.. The audience was somewhat silent,
the muttering chorus of "Away, away,"
came gently stealing through the most silent
chambers of the soul. Then this Orphean
throng, as the musing echoes from sweet
Elysian shades, made sweeter "Gather them
in," &c. "Happy Home" found no sweeter
ut'rance than from these lisping tongues,
while "I am thinking of thee" swelled like
;olian whispers to the genial spirit. "My
Sabbath Home" preluding "Never give up,"
&c., stole, in silent melting strains, our sur
rendered soul. "Safe within," &c., now
mused in the distance, when "Sound the
Battle Cry !" burst as an impatient harping
train upon the tender tones of distant-fading
hymns. Now "Strike the harp," &c., nor
scarcely was the mandate issued than the
swelling melody in lyric echoes rose on
Zephyr wings and wafted the tranced spirit
in bliss to joy's immortal nature. "Sweep
ing through" was next discoursed. It has
but a proper name. Each tone but folds a
Stygian cohort's arms and turns the once
occupied soul ad temporem to God, for such
uttered strains do "soothe the troubled
breast" and leave as music's just reward,
it "hath many charms." The "Ocean Grave
Song" was ushered to remote breasts by
"The Precious Name," which introduced to
us the entertaining thought thct Eolus had
harmonized his legions among this gentle,
music-breathing concourse to melt the soul
in sleeping joy forever and-I had almost
said-fan off the tartarian gnats. The alto
was well led by the cheerful Miss II., while
the soprano well looked upon the amiable
and accomplished Miss K. as a competent
dependence. Arousing from its transport
ing doze, on entering the door, the soul
finds its roamings through a mental-created
celestial concourse, instead of a real angelic
host. But dinner was announced before
all the singing was over, so we now hurry
on to that order of the day. Let us answer
the query, 'Did you get enough to eat? at.
once. We did. 'Was there sufficient for
al? Undoubtedly there was, and to speak
otherwise wo'nld be but impugning the real
character of Newberry. Tbe ecumenical
hilarity of the occasion and exuberance of
substantials and pastries that crowded the
festive board lay claim to the very just ver
dit, there was plenty and all enjoyed it.
Now, I did not mention the hymeneal can
didates in buggies (about six couples, but
don't you let them know I told you) for
they might get enraged at me. Gastro
noic satiety now asimonishing us that we
had arrived at the ultimate stage of deglu
titioa consistent with dietetic integrity
but with a gluttonous ambition to remain
that we might he able to eat more in ti:ne
-we retired to enjoy a few breaths o f so
cial chat, and then returned to the church
to sing a few of the above mentioned hymns,
~hn the pleasant exercises were varied by
tn address on "Music" from Mr. Joseph
Keitt, recent graduate of the Virginia Mili
tary Institute, Lexington, Va. The address
was able and oratorical, and delivered ac
cording to those styles. Through Mr.
Keitt's intellect may be seen blooming the
oratorical genius oa his eloquent father.
After the singing of a hymn the audience
over 300 in number--were dismissed with
prayer by the Rev. Mr. Ariail. Newberry
knows Miss B. far better than we can tell.
Able, kind, devoted, generous, sociable,
and everything else a christian nature could
possess, 'accounts for her many friends,
their joy to meet and sorrow at pressing
her departing hand."
A communication on the same subject
received since the above from our talented
young friend of "Enoree," is acknorledged
with pleasure.. He will understand why it
is omitted. Would be glad to hear from
him on other matters.
The Governors had an uncomfortable
time at the Philadelphia meeting, the
crowds of curious people pressed them
so much. We rejoice that circumstances
prevented our attendance.

MESSRS. WM. ROOT & SONs-Gentlemen:
Some months ago I bought a bottle of BRAD
IELD'S FEXALE REGULATOR from you, and
have used it in my family with the utmost
satisfaction, and have recommended it to
three other families and they have found it
just what it is recommended. The females
who have used your Regulator are now in
perfect health, and are able to attend to their
ousehld duties, and we cordially recom
end it to tie public.
Yours respec tfully,
RET. H. B. JOHNSON.

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
received the highest award over all competi
tors in the four quarters of the globe. Don't
be deceived 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.

A weekly journal, devoted to the interest
of. .Mas and Humanity, Art, Science,
Literature and general Information.
The establishment of a Southern Jewish
Journal in the interest of Judaism and the
dissemmination of its truths, would, we
think, be no superfluous addi'.ion to the list
of journals of like character issued at the
North and West. Relying therefo.re .on the
encouragement of our co-renigiomists in
general and on the support of our Southern
brethren and friends in particular, we have
decided to venture upon this New Southern
Enterprise, and shall, about the first week
in September, present for the favorable con
sideration of the public,
- THE SOUTHERN HEBREW.
Combining all the requisites necessary for
carrying on an fistructive and interesting
journal. it shall be our aim to submit a
paper. i.eplete with all that is calculated to
engross the attention of those eager to wel
come and entertain such a visitor to the
home circle. Under able management in all
departments, with tho aid of ministers,
teachers andl the native talent of others in
this section of the country. we hope to make
this journal a valuable adjunct to the Syna
gogue and the religious school. A hearty
"God-speed" has alreaay been given us, and
fresh imipetusto our energy, which is deeply
gratifying to the laborers in the vineyard.
THE HEBREW will be the organ of. no
special class, nor will any particular shade
of opin ion be advocated mn its columDS, b>ut
shall cheerfully endorse the right and the
truth whenoe,'soever they may emanate. In
matters of religions opinion, as wvell as on
any important subject, we shall be Indepen
dent in Everything--Neutral in Nothing.
This being the only JIewish journal issued
in the South, THE HEBREW claims to posses
superior advantages as an advertising me
diumn with~ rates.equal to the lowest.
With your aid and encouragement, we
trust to be able to realize every reasonable
